Hope Ur doing very very well. This episode is all about predictions whether its predictions versus reality to start off do NFL predictions for week 11 in a moment. This is going to come out probably after week 11:00 officially starts. And I I don't know for me. Like I think I think a lot of people actually watch my predictions after the week ends anyway, cuz I like well what exactly right what exactly wrong what can you make fun of him for so I wish it was earlier. I truly apologize I had surgery last week. I started I didn't get strong. Watching games till Thursday, cuz I just was out. I like I get in the lesson I learned was never take the drugs because of drugs just make you loopy and weird and I never felt like myself. So I apologize but I'm also getting tired of apologizing it's it was going to be behind. This was never this episode is probably never going to come out on time. And that's okay with me. I I wish I'd done better. We will do better next week. I I am I'm already I'm already had actually for next week. So I will see I'm I love you guys. I want to jump in let's get started with this. It's time for predictions versus reality full week. 10:00 will go backwards. It's a segment where I revisit the predictions I made and usually I love finding huh Zach you were wrong about this or that and yes, I do talk to my son third person apparently know I love dissecting where I get stuff wrong. However, interestingly enough in NFL week 10, I basically got nothing wrong. I this happen In fact, it happens way more than I feel like I get credit for I get crapped on all the time for the stuff I get wrong and I pretty much never gloat about the stuff I get right. So this is me kind of going off. Hey guys. Remember me? I got I went twelve and one last week. I got a couple of Minor Details wrong and one game wrong the Patriots game. Otherwise, I kind of nailed it last week. I'm going to talk about dive in but also, I think I hope people don't skip this segment because you know, I got I got a late start. It's I got my wisdom teeth removed as you guys know, it should be behind. I also didn't want to rush through games to watch games at a reasonable Pace. Cuz what I didn't want to do is watch games in a hurry and take bad notes. I think it matters to take your time taking tents notes go through the process and also watching I have kind of ruled myself. I don't make predictions until I watch every game from the previous week. So really get an understanding of every NFL team. It's excruciating. It's probably too much of a specially when you're like, hey, it's Thursday because your search you got two days off. To watch all the games it was a hard task but I really feel confident and actually again, I hope you won't skip this because I've got really good Insight. I believe on a lot of NFL teams this week even in this segment, which I know is old not only to name it. I might break out little pieces. I don't really know either way. Let's dive in let's do predictions virtual reality for last week. We'll start with the Steelers and the Bengals going. In fact, I picked the Steelers to win. I was curious whether or not the Bengals quarterback, Joe burrow could a challenge the Steelers at all. He could not by the way the Steelers 1:36 to 10:00 and Thursday. It's a mismatch right from the beginning. I do have a couple of thoughts about the Bengals first number one, Joe burrow, he needs help, you know, unfortunately the team around Joe burrow isn't great and that's like the only thing joburg control. It's like Joe burrow is is really he's young and he's learning is making some mistakes but man the things Joe burrow can control I would I think his game most resembles. Actually. I don't know them. In style of how he runs around and stuff but the the way Joe burrow succeeds is with preparation and detail. It reminds me a lot of a young Tom Brady, right and it's dead. It's not about the fact I Jo bar runs around where I thought about that. It's a fact that Joe burrow prepares really really hard. The problem is again, he can't pick the players around and he can't think the organization around and we can take a lot of stuff around home and it feels like an order for Joe burrow to elevate the Bengals to a position where they can win a lot of games. He's going to have to be dang near perfect. And I don't know that he can I don't think that's even a realistic expectation. You just cannot do it alone. Now, Joe made some really good throws in this game. The Steelers defense is just really really good. Joe Haden had a lot of balls knocked down and he just I love watching Joe burrow play with D Higgins Joe & T or like awesome. They have great chemistry together, but I mean the Steelers defense they want they were great. They were phenomenal and if Joe ever wants to compete with Team like the Steelers he's going to need more help. Now. I'm also concerned that the Bengals offense isn't necessarily built for the NFC North in November and December remember, I've been to Cincinnati. I love the same Cincinnati. I want to live there for I don't know at some point. I would live in Cincinnati probably for a year like rent a place for a year have a good year there then leave and go find somewhere warmer, but Cincinnati is a lot more mild than people actually realized Cleveland horse. You're on the lake. There's a lake effect swirling winds the winds crazy in Cleveland Baltimore is Harsh winter weather Pittsburgh as harsh weather. It's something but doesn't have snow and I think of all the cities in the AFC North actually Cincinnati is probably the most mild climate which if you know anything about Cincinnati, that's actually not that good at thinking to say it means that there's bad weather everywhere in their division in November and December and so I there's a reason why the Cleveland Browns offense is built around running the football. It's cuz they know we gotta we had to have snaps under Center. We have to go to run the ball. What if they're swirling winds and we literally can't even throw the ball off. So part of that is weather-related and I do have a concern that the Bengals offense isn't built to handle a bad. I watch Mike Leach a lot when I was at Washington State and off the problem of their off and actually was they couldn't win in the snow in the rain. They threw the ball like Seventy Times a game and when you do that, it doesn't help when the ball is literally hard to hold and receivers of dropping passes to snap. I I'm concerned about that with the Bangles and cold weather. I love Joe. I have a lot of a lot of concerns and again, Joe burrow cannot control the things around him the conditions of the team the organization ownership all that and I love Joe I'm starting to go. It's going to take a lot more than people realize for Joe burrow to turn things around in Cincinnati, even though they're competitive and fun dead. When does competitive and fun lead to winning? That's my concern. We'll see what happens now. The Steelers roster is loaded with Talent people. Do not realize I think a lot of people love to Discount Pittsburgh anytime. They can't like all their schedules week and their quarterback sneak. No, no, no. Well, let's go through what they have on their roster. It's kind of ridiculous. First of all, they've ate really really good skill players just on offense. They have James Conner Benny Snell to good running backs off Ray Ray McCloud a receiver. Who is also a good Return Man Chase, Claypool Juju Smith Schuster Eric Ebron this really, you know, not a star tight end but a very quality tight end at times Deonte Johnson who Johnny Johnson wage has really impressed me this year twenty-twenty where he's so good after the catch this guy I knew very little about I don't know if he's been good in the past. I have no idea but beyond a Johnson man for the Pittsburgh Steelers has emerged faith in my awareness at least and really been playing very very well this year. I'm impressed with him people need to realize There is a reason why the Pittsburgh Steelers are undefeated. It's not just because they're playing a bunch of crappy teams. And yeah, I would like I kind of agree with some people that are critics of a saying like well their schedule is an amazing fair enough. I'm not saying like they have the hardest job of all time. But here's why they should be a Super Bowl favorite. Think about these couple things. They have a Holiday Inn quarterback Big Bend to have an amazing coach Mike Tomlin arguably also a Hall of Fame coach. You can he's in the discussion. The very long career is going to be over you have a good offensive line. You have eight really good offensive weapons. You have one of the best if not the best defenses in the entire NFL tell me what does Pittsburgh not have exactly everything. Yeah. They have everything people love to discredit them. That's very silly. The Steelers are really really good. Do not discount Pittsburgh. They create so many big plays on offense. Big band is playing outstanding of all of the Old Guard Hall of Fame quarterbacks, that's table Brady Drew Brees maybe Philip Rivers. I'll throw an Aaron Rodgers and they're big band is playing better than all of them right now and look I agree like part of that is because he's got amazing weapons around it for sure. But he's also just playing at a very high level not should not be taken away from him. No matter how the people around him are he deserves some credit and people need to start giving the Steelers the respect that they deserve because oh my goodness, they're undefeated. They put the Jaguars today. They're probably going to be 10 to know and I they when are they going to become a Super Bowl favorite? No one's talking about this. I mean, I don't listen the media anyway, so I don't really know off but I know that it feels like the message I get from people no one's going. Oh, how do we beat Pittsburgh? Cuz I don't know how you beat Pittsburgh and a lot of NSA NFL teams don't know how to make Pittsburgh but no fans appear to be talking but it's oh and by the way, the Steelers defense is incredibly incredibly dominant. It's it's terrifying TJ watt make if it's Patrick Bud Dupree, Cameron Heyward, Joe Haden Robert Spillane. And back through I think he's filling in for injured had no idea Roberts plane was he's playing great. They added Avery Williams, which is they don't need every Williams. It's ridiculous from the Jets and feels like the entire Steelers team is made up with stars not entirely true, but there are so many good players on this defense their front seven is amazing. I I'm telling you now Pittsburgh is at the minimum at the minimum a Super Bowl Contender. They're going to be the AFC Championship game. I think there are Super Bowl team. I just feel like people need to start taking Pittsburgh more seriously than they are. I know they're undefeated psycho. Of course, they're undefeated. What do you mean? They're not taking them seriously, but I don't think the energy is right about Pittsburgh. They are really, really good. K Texans at the Browns going in I picked the Browns to win this game. I actually thought the Browns are going to win by a lot more but I also cannot I'm not a weatherman. I don't predict the weather package best I can with whether I really don't know that much and it was you know, it seems like Cleveland always has crazy weather which is actually why the Browns really have built the perfect offense took their City. I mean, they have an offense where they have safe under Center snaps. I remember watching very very clearly the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots this past week the Ravens could even snap the ball to Lamar Jackson home and in the shotgun, it didn't work. It was like the ball would roll back to him. It was super wet understand her snaps her a lot safer and harsh weather. They run the ball ton Baker Mayfield if he needs to throw in harsh weather, which hopefully, you don't need to but the Browns if they need to make your does have a strong enough arm to cut through a lot of the wind you will face and the wind was insane on Sunday. People don't realize how hard it is dead. To throw the ball and conditions like what I guess frequently happened in Cleveland, which is this swirling wind. It matters going to New York City going to play in I guess in New Jersey in MetLife Stadium down to play in Cleveland going to play in Buffalo. You have to have a really strong arm Baker does but I mean people keep acting like Baker Mayfield had a bad game against Houston. I could not disagree more. I thought Baker played very very well last week people worry way too much about stats and how things appear rather than looking at decision-making. I mean, especially given the crazy Wind You Gotta realize Baker Mayfield was very very disciplined against Houston he gave Cleveland exactly what they need, which is that he avoided big mistakes. He was safe. He took care of the ball. He was efficient. They ran the ball. They had two people run for over a hundred yards. That's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. Nick Chubb and Kareem hunt. They both ran for over a hundred yards. Oh my gosh. You don't need to be the best quarterback in the world. If you have that happening you need to take care of the football wage. To pick or did against Houston and it's just weird to me that people aren't people look at Baker again. It's just tells me people don't watch games. They look at box scores and go. Well, his stats were bad. He didn't have a touchdown pass. He he also didn't have an interception have a lot of yards. I mean did you watch the game? I mean, I think even on T, it's hard to understand how crazy that wind was in Cleveland nine people. I will call I have no problem calling Baker Mayfield out when it needs to happen. This is not one of those scenarios and I think actually Baker should have deserved credit for what he did last week rather than being ripped apart and people say people were literally like bounce back, bad game. Like what bad game what are you talking about? I I fundamentally don't agree with you or understand the Browns defense played very very well. They had a goal-line stand here is really telling actually is that the Browns got the ball back with 4 minutes and 55 seconds left. They ran seven straight running plays. They ran up the clock quite literally they kneeled dog. They won the game. They walked away at fat and happy they have a dominating rushing game in Cleveland, and it's just really good for their franchise and really good for their team now, Houston. The Houston Texans quarterback I get with a little wouldn't even sank the Houston Texans quarterback. DeShaun Watson deserves a ton of credit. I really think he is dealing with a lot where the the team around him has been very very messy this year. They fire their head coach. They traded away of star receiver DeAndre Hopkins, which was a big distraction made them look bad. He lost his best weapon. The team isn't very good and huge there too and 7 they're losing and people don't understand how hard it is to stay disciplined when there's a mess all around you. I mean look at the Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, he had fallen a part in a similar situation where there's injuries and people are hurt and a lot of stuff going on and they're losing you have to give DeShaun Watson a lot of respect for his mental fortitude key really really has done the absolute best he can and again people don't realize when your team is losing its really easy to get frustrated and start adding to their problems by Playing badly DeShaun Watson, it hasn't done that. He's been disciplined. He's taking care of the ball. He's I think he deserves a lot of respect. Now the Houston Texans in my opinion me to aggressively pursue go get go track him down. Give him a ton of money hire him go get the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator, Eric be enemy hire him as your own head coach literally as soon as possible. I don't care how long it takes. I don't care how much money to pay him go get him. I hear the people in Houston like Romeo Crennel. He's the current interim head coach. He's I think it might be actually over all this coach in the NFL if I'm not mistaken. He's a longtime Belichick assistant. He's a really solid coach. I think he hit a great move. He called a punt in the swirling Whitney and got them really good field position on defense. There's some little stuff that Romeo Crennel does that are really good and I think Houston ownership general manager Whoever has control there. Could very kindly suggest hey Eric the enemy we want to hire you are recommendation would be you should hire Romeo Crennel as our defensive coordinator. We think it's smart and I think it's smart. Hi Romeo Crennel, he's wise he's been around for a long time here first time head coaching your Eric be enemy. It makes sense to keep Romeo Crennel as your defensive coordinator. But also if you're the ownership in Houston, you have to leave that decision up to the guy your hiring with Eric be enemy. But here's what's number one. Most important. The number one most important thing for Houston right now. They need to get a top-notch offensive coach to maximize the Sean Watson success. She needs to have his skill-set capitalized on down right now. Do not waste any more time of the Sean Watson Square. You've already wasted too much in my opinion take your in the same division as the Indianapolis Colts. You played against Andrew Luck a ton. Do you remember that happened? Andrew Luck? He lost the got the crap beat out of me got hurt. And in the end we were tired way too early. I don't know that Sean Watson's gonna retire way too early, but I do know that the lesson there is hey, if you don't give a shitt help and support when he needs it. You're never going to live up to the expectations and the potential of that player's career when you have an amazing talent at quarterback like DeShaun Watson is Take action go get them help go get them support do what it takes to get them what they need and my opinion that clear answer is go higher Eric be enemy as soon as humanly possible to be the head coach of the Houston Texans. Get Raiders Broncos. I picked the Raiders to win this game. I was right the Raiders are playing very very well. I don't know that there's a lot of discussion the Broncos. I mean, I think they won like thirty seven to twelve. I think that's actually attached to the score linebacker. Nick Witkowski deserves a shout. I explained very very well. He's having a great year. He had a sweet one-handed interception in this game at the very end of the game against Drew lock Josh Jacobs ran for 112 yards the Raiders quarterback Derek Carr's having an outstanding year. By the way, Derek Carr is better than stats would even show people again this obsession with numbers. It drives me nuts cuz it lacks context Derek Carr's better than the numbers show. He's out of touch. I guess a couple of touchdowns dropped this year. Is that a couple of touchdowns called back? I think even wrongly in some cases Derek Cars making very very good decision. He's playing very very well, and it's off of everything Derek or playing his entire life and and Derek Carr I think deserves even more credit than he's been getting so far this year. Now against the Raiders against the Raiders the Broncos quarterback Drew lock had not one not two not three but four interceptions that may not happen. And I look the number of the fourth interception. He threw was with eighteen seconds left in the game. It's just kind of was kind of an amazing went in and play by Nick Witkowski. The Raiders linebacker wage fair enough. Like if you want to you want to say hey the fourth one you're down by the time they're trying to make a play whatever. I don't really care about that one, but interceptions one through three were bad decisions and bad throws and it cannot happen, So I want to talk to discourage Denver Broncos fans because I want to tell you drew lock is growing. He's learning but it's also not hopeless Drew lock is off doing some good things as well. I wouldn't give up under lock. In fact, I really haven't given up under lock. Now people are very mad at me especially in the state of New York because they're hardcore Giants fans are like, well you've given up on Daniel Kang. Jones why have you not given up on Drew lock and my answer was number one life is not fair. And that's not my job to cover your feelings or to be I didn't even I'm as Fair as I can be by the way, but even if you're mad, it's not my job to really worry about you being mad. And I would also say number two. I would give a longer a more a greater amount of chances to Drew lock because he's a more talented quarterback. Then Daniel Jones got a bigger stronger arm and then also have to realize I don't know that Denver is going to be in a position where they can replace Drew lock. I mean that that matters if you can't replace your boss doesn't matter if he's good or not. He's got to figure it out. And here's what's very very important people to hear this next year when everybody's healthy the Broncos are going to have a ton of offensive weapons are gonna have a good defense good weapons. If they're healthy next year Denver is going to have a loaded roster probably another good player because we're going to have a high first on traffic. Not to mention you have a good offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur again. I think a high draft pick probably not high enough to replace door lock, but here's the thing. Drew lock needs to be ready for next year Drew lock has to get things figured out. I think a little bit of compassion. Would you like make sense? Remember don't forget he's a new offense the players all around them got hurt member every planning to work with gets injured and you're like our plan is now destroyed I can see how that would affect a Young quarterback but regardless of all the excuses and this and that people need to realize and ask Drew lock forget other people this offseason Drew lock needs to decide whether or not he wants to make it in the NFL this offseason. Is he going to sit by the pool and it is very wealthy is a nice relaxed hanging with his girlfriend chill be happy and do a little bit of training. Or so you get a really put the pedal to the metal and get after it. How hungry is Drew lock to succeed. Does your lock want to win that badly? Does he want to make it the NFL that wage cuz also there's significant financial Financial incentive few plays very, well. It's not that hard. I mean, hey, you're going to make a crap load of money. If you play very very well Drew lock needs to spend money now offering people that can help him practice and perfect his craft. He needs to hire a coach to help him watch film and dissect his game also to watch other quarterbacks and take the good parts of Tom Brady's game and Drew his game and Big Ben's game and pull from other quarterbacks. He needs to become a student of the game. He needs to throw one-on-ones constantly higher. If you need to hire receivers and defensive backs guys, who can you just practice thrown into the bucket or into a really tiny window against man coverage down the sideline practice the stuff you're struggling with right now in the NFL he needs to put himself through like a personal boot camp because again wage He needs to improve in order to capitalize next year when the Broncos are ready to win. I would hate to see this Broncos roster in a phenomenal position to win and oh, yeah, by the way Drew lock didn't do the work, He wasn't good enough. It wasn't ready. That would be really frustrating and unfortunate getting Drew needs to become a student of the game playing quarterback needs to become his craft. He's got to take it more as hard to judge how seriously he takes it, but he's got a ramp things up, and if he doesn't it's not going to work in Denver, and the Broncos are never going to live up to the potential. They have next year. I have so many things going for them, but their quarterback Drew lock has to get better this offseason and take a step forward or else it's not going to work at all next year in Denver. The Saints and the 49ers I predicted the Saints to win this game. It was an easy prediction. The Saints are playing very very well. The 49ers have a ton of injuries the Saints one twenty seven and thirteen Forty Niners at four turnovers. They threw two interceptions one was bad one was a jump ball light. I like Nick Mullens. I don't want to it wasn't perfect. He's okay. I like I like Nick Mullens. I thought he's just he's not he's not a franchise quarterback. He's a backup who you hope he can do well enough the Saints defense is playing very very, well. The Saints also had not the Saints. Excuse me, I guess the Saints had a muffed punt as well. But the 49ers had to suck really really costly buff punch. Meaning you drop a punt when it's got a given you basically you fumble a punt and both the Saints both fumbles gave the Saints really really good field position and that led touchdowns for New Orleans. So I say it's kind of really handed two touchdowns to New Orleans or what I'm saying. The 49ers handed two touchdowns in New Orleans. I'm really trying the best I can to get my words straight. I will say. Oh God. Jerick McKinnon the 49ers running back. Oh my gosh, he is awful at pass protection. He wrongly let's so many Russians come free after the quarterback is a thing called check and release and I know that's how I know people in the building. I know that's how the 49ers operate on a lot of the plays that I'm talking about and criticizing here a check and release is where you check. Hey, is anybody coming out for the quarterback and if nobody's going to have for the quarterback, then you can release and go run a swing route or check down, but you don't want to check down if your quarterbacks on his back. So if there's someone you need to hit and block U block them and mobile times Jerick McKinnon let people run right by him that he should have been blocking. It's like to what do you do at the very minimum you can get away with this if you want put a hand on the guy jab the guy throw him off his corsage turn around and maybe by let's at least Nick Mullens has enough warning to flip you the ball to check it down to you know, when he's going to get nailed but put a hand on the guy at the minimum Jerick McKinnon. Oh my gosh, Jerick McKinnon, it's dead. It's really frustrating watch him try to pass block now, and I need some water for this. The story this 49ers Saints game was that Drew Brees got hurt. So against the 49ers the Saints quarterback Drew Brees. He fractured eleven of his ribs. I think eight on the right page on the left or vice versa one on one side of eight one side at 3. And so Drew did not play the entire second half of the game against the 49ers. In fact James Winston came in he played quarterback for the Saints and James played the entire second half by the way, Jameis not taysom Hill. So that'll come back to matter later. I mean taysom Hill at a couple of random plays running like a wildcat formation stuff. Jameis played pretty well last week. He moved the ball very, well. This score points when he was in at quarterback, and that's why I was very very surprised when it was announced that off. Taysom Hill was going to be the Saints starting quarterback for The upcoming week 11:00. I went what Jameis Z not your best quarterback. I don't really know and so it's going to be interesting because for at least the next three weeks because Drew Brees goes put on the injured reserve meeting. He has to at least sit out for the next three weeks. We're going to see the Saints without Drew Brees again. Let me let me repeat that the Saints without Drew Brees, which is actually kind of four of them got the future because remember Drew Brees is 41 years old at some point. He's going to be gone. So I'm genuinely curious is taysom Hill next after Drew Brees four tires. I don't know but these next couple games are going to be really really fun for the sake of film analysis where I we get to dissect I would happen to the Saints quarterback situation. Do they have a guy who can be next month after Drew Brees is Jameis Winston going to play at all. I don't know. I would actually also kind of point out that in a weird odd roundabout way the Saints are actually kind of Lucky and fortunate because these couple games are going to give the Saints an opportunity to figure out what they have and without actually kind of at a minimal cost to their season. So tasty meals when the back over the states for years. He's this is his fourth year in the league. It's also its fourth year in New Orleans in four years Taste of Millis thrown exactly 18 passes in the NFL. Oh, so we really I don't know a lot about him. I really I I I've seen him play like probably seen all 18th rolls. He's made I don't know what I can glean from that. I want to watch more. I don't watch the Saints practices. So I really am curious to see What's going to happen with New Orleans in the next couple of weeks? Do they have the next quarterback they're going to need or not. I don't know. We're going to find out we'll do film analysis when it's all said and done. It's going to be really really fun. I'm very very curious to find out do the Saints have the next quarterback. Yes or no. Packers Jaguars, I predicted the Packers to win this game. I got that right but I still feel like I got the game wrong because the Packers one twenty four to twenty and I'll tell you I never could have imagined them being that close now going in the Packers had seemed to the Jaguars the Jaguars had a they had a bad record. The Jaguars had a rookie starting quarterback. They're playing a Packers game. It's likely a playoff team. I think it is a playoff team is not really likely they they just are that good and I was really really impressed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in this game the rookie quarterback, Jake Luton was all right, a sixth-round pick from Oregon State. It's interesting because Jake Luton has the one thing Luton LED night. I really don't know. I still don't know I watch the game and I watched the film. I didn't hear the broadcast probably should have known as I say that out loud. I probably should have figured out how to say his name before. I apologize that I didn't I'll do the better next time Jake has the one thing Gardener and she doesn't have which is a strong arm off. Oh, I wish I could combine Jake and Gardener into one quarterback. I'd be a really good quarterback Paul athletic strong-arm really smart charismatic injuries. Like it'd be all the things that make up Jacob and garments. If you can just combine the two. Oh my gosh, they'd have a franchise quarterback in in Jacksonville. So it's I wish you could you can't do that kind of stuff. I think the song even if it was possible they would say well you can't but I'm so stupid. Why would say that? I don't know I will say this the Jaguars coaching staff. The Jaguars coaching staff is really really impressed bought a year. I am not sold that they deserve to be fired. Yeah, the one and eight Shares are not doing very well, but they were given a really young not very great roster and off the key to the Jaguars coaching stuff what they're doing right now collectively as a whole unit. They're developing young players. Very very well James Robinson offensive iske. She'll the receiver on offense and cheese. Events, you know Josh Allen Caleb on Jason Corner Sidney Jones a guy who is giving great coverage. He did a great job guarding Davante Adams against the Packers. Rookie Corner CJ Henderson a forced fumble against Green Bay. The Jaguars are fighting hard. They're young players are emerging. It's really cool. I mean, I think kind of my favorite part about the Jaguars going in was I can't wait to see em, young players are rising players and the young Talent they have and makes them fun to watch. It really has turned out that way like yeah the Jaguar is there one and eight but it's actually been a pretty interesting one in eight. We're young players are making a lot of plays. They're growing their learning. I want to give credit to the Jaguars coaching staff. They're developing young players and that's not hard. You have to be a teacher. You have to help people understand what their potential is dead teach them how to do their job better. You also have to consider that the Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone never really has had a top quarterback and he's yet still done pretty well in Jacksonville dead. Here's a weird crazy. Thought the best quarterback Doug. Marrone is ever had is Gardner Minshew. Oh God, I love gardening meet you right? I'm a huge fan of him the person if the best quarterback you ever had in the NFL's Gardner Minshew. Hi, it just it says a lot about man. You really haven't had the best luck as a quarter as a coach with quarterbacks. And I mean think about this Doug Marrone got to be an AFC Championship game with Blake Bortles at quarterback Blake Bortles. Oh my gosh. What so Doug Marrone can coach then consider. Look, he's got a young team with covid-19. I really want to see the Jaguars with Justin Fields as their quarterback. I I think Doug Marrone plus Justin Fields plus all the young Talent they have this developing. That's a really good team. And I I I think people should kind of recognize the Jaguars coaching staff is doing a good job again the key to their job. They were given a really bad roster with young players. They're developing those young players are getting the better. They're prepared to compete every week. They're fighting really really hard for their coach. I mean I Doug Marrone should keep his job in my opinion. What's next can't even thought oh Washington against the Lions another game where I got the winner, right? But I got some key details wrong. I always concerned about Washington quarterback Alex Smith. He really really excited me off early. I'm excited to watch Alex Smith this next week. I think it play who do they play somebody beatable? It's really I don't remember. It's it's it's in the next segment. We'll talk about it later Alex Choi. Was 3855 passing a 390 yards the stats are one thing. It's just kind of a benchmark to understand he threw for almost four hundred yards. He was pretty efficient throwing the ball. He's likely going to in Story of the Year for me at the end of the year, but this was a crazy game because the lines were up 24 to 3 in the third quarter mean the lions were blowing out Washington and Washington came storming back and it wasn't just garbage time getting a couple points know they came all the way back. They tied the game. What's Alex Smith's hide the game in the fourth quarter? I went off my goodness. Here we go. And there are three scores. So why isn't inside the game 24-24 with six minutes left, then the Lions had a field goal and within the final three minutes three scores happened Alliance had a field goal then washing it at a two-minute drive for a touchdown and then the lions got the ball tie game sixteen seconds left. They drove 34 yards khong 259 yard field goal. They won the game. Oh my gosh this washing and Lions game was game. I was not really interested in watching and I watched him what what life was so much fun. I really I think people here's another reason why that game was fun Not only was the score interesting the highlight of the Washington Detroit game for me was having a former pro Corner Aqib Talib calling the game came to leave is a guy who I I did not see this coming. I did not expect it. He just retired. I loved him. I cannot change our state Aqib Talib. Wow, it's a different broadcast. It's not a broadcast you've ever heard before. I love this Insight. I love what he has to say and he's very casual which I think is needed. He's not stuffy. It's not these a lot of broadcasts of the suit I and it's boards. It's boring. No, no, no. No when you listen to a game that a cube to leave calls. It's like watching with the dog. And or watching with someone in a film room and you're dissecting the game, he's more casualties less stuff. He's really smart. He clearly obviously knows what he's talking about. It's got great insight into defenses because he was at home of the NFL for a long time. He's and and not exotic quarterback. He's he's really he was a corner meaning that he has a lot of insight on pass interference calls and little coverage nuance and the way he described stuff quickly. He's a good teacher actually and keep delete calling the game probably for one of the first times all year. Got me to turn the volume up in this game mode. Who's this guy? Show me? Well, I like you saying you saying man, he's saying he is more casual. He's not trying to be anything. He's not he's being himself. I can't really Round of Applause. I'm ranting now, but oh my gosh, I loved listening to accumulate call that game. I it got me to even watch the TV. Copy. Remember normally I watched the film and or either I watched the film or faster watch the TV copy meaning like Thursday. The thing people see on T. I mute the game. Oh, no. No. No, I loved it. I I listen to everything you keep really bad to say. I probably took way too long. Like usually I I don't watch kickoffs and stuff. I don't aren't going to matter. I just literally sat back for 3 hours and listen to Everything. I was in in a happy happy place man. I just oh, I love the key to lead. I love listening to him be a human being and I he bought a new kid on the Block man. It came to lead is a broadcaster. I hope people keep you know, Network executives are people I do not trust at all. I mean they've cancelled my favorite shows. They've done all kinds of stuff that drives me nuts off. I've even I know some of them I've talked to them. They're a pain in the rear. I hate them. They're awful. And if they fire a keep believe it's like cancel. My favorite TV should be still exactly know bring him back my own new favorite like little a my favorite part. Yeah, I like I like I love Joe Clyde. I was Tony Romo. They're better in my opinion know knock know. I keep feeling like this new thing like, oh this shiny new car is great. He's funny. He's interesting. It's energetic. I please don't get rid of him. He's he's funny. I I really like to keep the lead and I really really really hope that he keeps broadcasting because oh my gosh, this guy is he's a gem. He really we got if you watched that Washington Detroit Lions game, you got to see something really really fun and exciting and cool and I I'm getting Goosebumps. What the heck? I I really had a great time. I don't have a man crush on the guy but oh my gosh, I love is broadcasting. So awful. It's what I'm going to keep going because it's what I've wanted for so long which is to tone down the stuff be like Perfect You're certain wet. No, no, dude talk like a girl actually human being talk like you're watching a game with your friends. That's what I keep to leave brought me. And man. I I can't say enough good things. It was really really fun. The Dolphins and the Chargers of the battle of two young quarterbacks. I guess haven't talked about this game yet, Justin Herbert and Tua tagovailoa. I could not have been more right about this game. I've done my predictions episode after the game that already happened. I literally I it's like I had a crystal ball. I got everything right? It's cuz I just I watch every game. I've got a really good pulse on the league and I bring it to the Dolphins to win money because they had better team that a better Coach. I thought it'd be a fun interesting game. It was exactly that. Justin Herbert is the more explosive quarterback for the Dolphins 1:29 to 21. My name is a better team around. It does not matter. It was interesting. It was fun In The End by a mule one. I was right. I'm not going to I don't need to gloat about that one. I just I nailed it. I killed it and I'm happy the Rams and the Seahawks. I picked the Rams to win this game. Your boy was right. I did well and felt weird to count out Russell Wilson. But again, it was the right call the Rams 123 216 Russell Wilson LED Seattle in rushing not good. I haven't watched the Thursday night football game yet between the Seahawks and the Cardinals that'll be today's task. You know, it's Sunday morning. So I just I've been trying to watch the other games from week 10th and catch up after my surgery, you know, you know what I mean? I think with the Rams. Nobody talks about how the Rams have two. Good tight ends. They have Tyler higbee and Gerald Everett. They're not like Star tight ends, but their quality and they really do a good job, and I don't think anybody like I just woke nobody nationally talks about Tyler higbee and Gerald Everett, but they're really good. They're very very quality. They're kind of like the second here down. They're not Stars. They're not Travis Kelce, but they both contribute a lot of really good stuff and I thought they deserve a shout-out. I also love the Rams running back rotation. They're kind of top three guys are Darryl Henderson knocking Brown and cam Akers and with multiple backs. The Rams are getting really good production. And actually the Rams are showing that having multiple running backs is really smart alternative to paying one running back a lot of money. I it's cheaper your last flight on one person. I think about was an NFL general manager. I would probably pick a running back just a quarterback sat at quarterback. I meant running back the entire time. I would pick a running back in. Second round of the NFL draft probably almost every single year. Like if I don't need a running back and there's a really good unavailable take him anyway, because you have the guy for his rookie contract and let him leave and replace him with another girl who's again cheap and talented and can play right away because his running backs get older their bodies deteriorate and even if you're like, even if your guy after their rookie contracts going to stay really good you can still get 70% of that production from a rookie on a cheaper contract. Don't pay running backs. It's unfortunate right? You pay Christian McCaffrey you pay Alvin Kamara Who else I made maybe say called what is saquon really done to Elevate, New York? Can you name it? I can't Ezekiel Elliott is hemorrhaging the Cowboys for money and hurting their franchise again. I I would I it's not really like the cool thing to say. I know that it's like I have friends who play running back at a high level. It's like I'm sorry guys, I wouldn't pay you. I don't think running backs are very valuable. I just you can easily replaceable. There's so many good ones out there. And if you have a good scheme the offense alignment and the scheme matter so much more than getting the best running back in the league a great running back with a bad offensive line is nothing. I'm rambling now, but I I just I am dead I guess you pick Derrick Henry, right? That's another one. I'm forgetting. There's not a lot of running backs. I would pay though. And in most of them even really really good ones. I'd say I'm replacing you with a rookie who's cheaper cuz you're not worth the contract anymore. And I would if I was a GM, I'd be harsh and cold. I'd be ninety very personable. Nice, but look at look. I'm sorry man. I'll say it to your face. You're not worth what I'm paying you and what you want. So I'm going to I'm going to Pay a rookie runningback a cheaper amount and replace you and I would say to their face and say look it's a harsh world. I apologize take less money or I'm not going to ring you back into our team and even then I still would feel safer getting a rookie cause they're younger. They're they've got fewer hits a running back. Honestly, it's just so crazy and me to go on this tangent but a running back's kind of like a tire where the more wage you get the less reliable it is and it just the more you're running back runs the more hits he takes the more wear and tear goes on its body the less, you know Gatsby has in the tank to keep going. So running backs are finite. They're they're just occurs on a very long my if I was someone I would say, hey guys don't play running back play receiver not running back is running backs careers are very very short receivers can play a lot longer play cross-play anything running backs get their guitar beat out of them. If you don't want if they run it back running backs or linebackers, basically and linebacker careers aren't very long either but linebackers actually somehow find a way to make it off. Running backs. I just I I wouldn't pay running back. I just would not unfortunately, I feel bad. I feel bad and guilty saying that but it just reality. I wouldn't by the way Jalen Ramsey shut down DK Metcalf and that Seattle Seahawks game. Dikhaye had two catches for 28 yards Russell Wilson had three turnovers. He had two interceptions bad ones actually and a fumble. So that's I know we gave away from that but that's why the Rams and how the Rams beat Seattle last Sunday the Giants and the Eagles. This is a tough one for me. I said, I thought the Giants would win I really was torn here. But again I did I admitted it was a toss-up but I picked the Giants. I'm going to go with it. I was technically right even though it's I don't this is not like not like I'm like you I nailed it on home and I was so right. I'm not going to blow it on this one. I kind of got it right but like I got lucky the Giants won 27-17 Carson Wentz Eagles quarterback, he looks like it losing confidence. The Eagles are 3-5 and one they're really struggling to protect him. The the Eagles pass protection has been really really bad. And the year is taking a toll on Carson Wentz I worry about him because hope is very very important. And Carson appears to be losing hope and that's not good. Now with the Eagles have two solid running backs. They have Boston's got a mile standards reminds me a lot of the Rams actually true quality vacs. You don't need to start running back. You got to Quality backs. They're giving you a production Boston's got a really good touch down on the Eagles defense are struggling with Crossing routes. I mean, if you run Crossing routes against the Eagles, they have really bad communication. They're leaving guys wide open. Look for that. Next time you watch the Eagles says that give up a lot of open Crossing routes cuz it's poor communication. It's it's a schematic problem. Lisa has been so far this year. Now the Giants quarterback is an awful. I don't hate handle Jose. People think I don't like him. He's not Mitchell trubisky. He's not I have nothing against Daniel Jones snacks. It seems like a nice guy, but he's not great. He's just okay his arm limits him. Actually his scariest is his ability to run. That's why I'm not really excited about Daniel Jones. It's that he's limited and once you realize hey the correct we have is limited. It's funny. I when I played I played quarterback in college and I was really really when I made my Daniel Jones film analysis, probably I think two years ago now, I I think my My Philosophy has changed a lot. I used to be way kinder to be a box with weaker arms that couldn't drive the ball as well. Cuz that's a doesn't matter. You gotta be accurate. It does get to be accurate for sure but arm strength matters and arm Talent matters and I bought a coach cuz my my perspective is just a lot from the emotion of a player hopefully more to the analysis of a coach and someone with more objective. You know less biased approach cuz I wasn't quarterback but I tried to remove my Lair emotion there and if you remove the emotion it makes you want a quarterback of the stronger arms got more potential to make more plays and may I get it? I really my My Philosophy shifted. I really value arm Talent way more than I used to and Daniel Jones his decision making is bad a lot of the time his not all the time. But a lot of time he has very low pocket awareness, but also forget all that. What's the best Daniel Jones can ever become he's got a limited arm that to me is screams wage. I walk away. Once you realize the guy we have is never going to be amazing. What are you doing? Go get a better quarterback drafts it replace them. I'm sorry. I saw Daniel Jones is okay. Not awful. But just okay and you don't want to just okay quarterback. You want a great quarterback. So I I give it up Anna Jones. I'm not trying to be mean I just it's just dead. He's never going to be Patrick Mahomes or he's never going to be Hall of Fame quarterback and never me amazing Ruby top of the league. He's not even every me Dak Prescott probably so I yeah, I would walk away from Daniel off the page works at the Ravens the game. I got wrong. I believe the Ravens would win this game. The Patriots actually beat the Ravens 23-17. I have no shame at all saying this I cannot figure out the Patriots for the life of me. I I don't know what they're doing. I don't know. It's confusing did a whole video. I'm not going to say any more about it. I did a whole topic about it. It's called I think I don't I can't figure out the Patriots and literally might even be called that go watch it. It's me rambling for like home feel like an hour and half. It's not really it's like like 15 12 minutes. Maybe be just going here's explaining my thought process and trying to understand their thought process. It's like a I'm proud. It's actually good video, but I just don't understand the Patriots of doing at all. I want to give a shout out to the Patriots Corner JC Jackson. He's an undrafted player. He's in his third year. He deserves a ton of credit. He's actually leads the NFL in interceptions. Yes, six. He had another one on the Mark Jackson before half-time in this game. The Ravens tight end Nick Boyle. He's out for the year with a knee injury. He's the raven. Blocking tight end and now the Ravens they run the ball heavily, Nick Boyle is heavily involved in their running game too. So that's going to hurt the Ravens a lot moving forward. I'm concerned for them. Nobody score in the fourth quarter. It was there was crazy ran if you watched the I mean the TV copy never even does it justice. I mean the rain between the Patriots and the Ravens was insane on Sunday Night Football and the Ravens were down six points needing to throw the ball at the end of the game in the fourth quarter and it was literally just to why they couldn't even snap the ball to Lamar Jackson and they had a ton of drops off. His master couldn't throw the ball at all, and it's not really cuz the Mars bad because the ball was so wet. You literally couldn't hold it without it slipping out of your hands. So, I mean not to mention the Mars also still growing and finding who he is a quarterback who he wants to be. I said that Lamar is finding his identity. What I mean is Lamar is still figuring out what parts of other people's game. He wants to bring into his and he still finding when do I run? When do I do this? What's my action here? He's doubting himself a lot of second-guessing a lot of things and I don't think it's actually badic Lamar Jackson won NFL MVP and went I want to get better though. I think the Mars trying to get even better than another step forward and the process of growth is just painful and frustrating it takes a long time. And so Lamar's figuring out who he wants to be as a quarterback. It's not bad. It's just growing pains and soul. You can win NFL MVP and get better. That's what he's trying to do. Just want to be just a running quarterback. He wants to learn how to throw the ball better I think and have a you know more longevity to his career. So Lamar's struggling but it's not bad. It's I think it's healthy struggle and just get better you have to struggle. So Muammar is well on his way. It's just going to take a while. Buccaneers Panthers Iowa's add Christian McCaffrey didn't play in this game because I feel like I'd be it'd be exciting to watch a really good matchup between the Buccaneers and the Panthers down. I picked the Buccaneers. It was really hard to pick them. I I was torn but the Buccaneers did win 4623. This is some of the best football Tom Brady's played all year. It seems like he's figuring out how to play with Mike Evans his star receiver. That's terrifying. Here's the number one. Take away from this game is Tom Brady's figuring it out and there I mean every week I watched the Buccaneers, they're so inconsistent. They've been inconsistent frustrating, but I'm I'm I have faith that Tom Brady. Is figuring things out and going to keep getting better from this point Guam did really well at a big catch and a touchdown the Buccaneers defense played very, well. Ronald Jones had a 98-yard touchdown run. But I am I believe from this game. I'm using this as evidence that the Buccaneers are heating up on offense is getting better and that's not good for anybody. Cuz if Tom Brady's playing well with the weapons, he has watch out would be terrifying to play the Buccaneers. The Vikings and the Bears I picked the Vikings to win this game the Vikings 119 to 13. Kirk got his first win on Monday Night Football played very well Kirk Cousins respect to that David Cook ran the ball 496 yards. He had pretty decent game although, like if you care about stats, I think you only have like cuz what's get 30 carries for 96 hours. What's 96 / 30? It's like three point. 3 something I can't do math three-point something not a lot of yards per carry so you could you can give credit to the Bears if you want, but I thought I mean David Cook. I thought had a solid game. He had a real amazing 1-yard run where they met him in the backfield and he went and they already went past him and he broke like three tackles for 1 yard wide. I mean David looks amazing now. The Bears because The Bears need a complete overhaul. They need a new coach. They need a new quarterback and need a new general manager. I have always I'm not afraid to say this. I have hated Mitchell trubisky for years. I don't like him. He's not a good quarterback. He's infuriating to watch and for a long time. I've been very very critical of Mitchell trubisky. But also Matt Nagy the Bears head coach. I I'm I'm just so unimpressed with him, you know for a long time Matt Nagy failed to develop Mitchell trubisky. Well, that's harsh because Mitchell trubisky had a lot of opportunities. I mean so many missed opportunities. We're good plays were called and he would either Nazi guy open or literally completely missile throw are male throw whatever but I think some of that stuff needs to go on Matt Nagy now where Matt Nagy never helped Mitchell trubisky make the proper Corrections in the film room. Mitchell needed guidance and help and he never got it. And that's the way I wish I could have gotten into a room and talk to me a little bit giving like dude you need to do this. You need to work on these things. You need to just I need two people a lot of times people don't even have a plan how to get better. It's really bad. I think Matt Nagy never gave trubisky you plan how to get better and I don't know. I don't I don't know the work ethics a problem. It's a risky. I have no idea. I've never met the guy don't know anything about him other than his play on the field every week was really really horrendously bad faith. And so again, I do wonder about work ethic but what if he was never told the right things to do like you can work incredibly hard if you don't have the wrong stuff, it doesn't matter and I think Mister too risky never had a plan to get better without wage. We've also learned. Hey Matt, Nagy has been kind of exposed that a very good coach. It's it's all bad. It's really was Matt Nagy elevated by Andy Reid in Kansas City, probably. I mean, I remember I just I don't know. I feel like the Bears do not have a long-term quarterback. It's not Nick Foles. It's not missile trubisky. I think they got a fire everybody else. They need to they even running the ball terribly. It's a bad scheme. It's a bad offensive line. They don't really have a running back. If I were the Bears, I would actually draft a running back probably. I mean, you know, I dropped him in the second round address running back almost every year in the same thing and the Bears need to draft a running back not in the first round in the second round after they get a quarterback. The Bears are the worst running game in the NFL made their last in every category. It's just awful and I feel sad for Baseball fans. I mean I Matt Nagy it didn't work. I think that I'm starting to give him more blame for debate these failures than a used to cuz I all I saw was guys suck. And and bad throw or I saw a Guys open and not recognizing guy open but at some point you go. Why isn't the coach developing this guy? Why isn't the coach giving him the tools he needs to figure out how to get better and so long and then without trubisky it's not like the Bears are way better and I don't know Affairs are just a misfire everybody restart. Unfortunately, you know, here's what really really sad. The Bears at one point had this dominant dominant defense. They don't anymore. They don't they it's it's a a missed opportunity. I mean when I look back at the missed opportunity and Andrew Luck's career the amazing Bears defense, I probably the year Tom Brady got home after having, you know, after going eighteen and one, you know, it's he got hurt at Castle play the next year it took me. What a what a sad if that team had their quarterback would have done amazing things again. There's as a lot of dead Missed opportunities in the NFL history and things to look back on but the payers had this incredible incredible defense and they never could get the quarterback, right? It's so sad and never it's the lesson here is don't be afraid to walk if it's not working walk away don't waste a good thing don't squander a great defense with a great defensive coordinator who's doing incredible stuff with a bad quarterback who can't win you any like the Jaguars had a great team and they Blake Bortles at quarterback. It's the same exact thing. It's so disappointing when a team can't put it all together and the payers never could it's very very sad. It just it makes me it's so depressing to me. It's like man, the Bears had this amazing defense and totally wasted it last won the Cardinals at the bills. I nailed this game too. I'm not going to say too much. I did a whole topic breaking down the bills and the Cardinals, you know in the last episode in episode 306 so long This game was exactly like a said it would it was crazy. It was closed. It was fun Tyler. Lit it up the Cardinals 1:30 to 2:30 with a last-second Hail Mary. It was a fun game. I had a great time and I I don't know but not a lot that needs to be said there. I nailed this one out twelve and one last week. I really I'm very proud. I think that the work I'm doing where I watch every single game is hard to do, but it really does give you it gives me a lot of deep inside in the NFL and it pays off water real quick. I'm not even a cut the episode she gonna keep going. I was going to take a break. My thing says take a short break and have a week 11:00 predictions our next but I'm not going to do that. I want to talk about NFL week 11. It's here. We'll do some predictions this episode late. I'm looking at the clock. It's 10:01 in the morning right now. Meaning that this video is not going to come out until Thursday after NFL week 11 has started which is disappointing. I apologize. I got my wisdom teeth taken out. I had then I had this rule with myself. I don't make predictions to tell I've watched every single game from that previous week cuz I what I don't want to do is just say stuff. I want to be informed when I give predictions and so I the cost of getting a late start after surgery last week trying to catch up watching all the games has put me to this page where it's 10:01 in the morning on Sunday. The games are starting right now on my predictions are going to come out and like 30 minutes. So I I apologize I I do the best I could I think a lot of people don't watch these after games have already started it like people love to go back and go. What do you write what you get wrong? I don't know. So I did the best I could hear we are I'll be good for the 1:00 window on the west coast. So that's fine. In my opinion. I apologize. It's a little But late, I did the best I could will be better next week too. By the way. I'm ahead for next week. So I I had surgery please forgive me the Bengals at Washington should be a fun game Joe burrow and Alex. They're playing each other in a roundabout way where they played each other's defense has Alex Smith was really really good against the Lions last week. It gave me a renewed interest like, oh my gosh, Alex Smith had 319 yards. He was like 3855 passing. He had just oh, wow. I mean he had a great comeback. He brought them back from they were down 24-3 came back and almost won the game Alex Smith. Wow, I thought he's gotten better since he first played his getting more comfortable. He really is settled in I believe Washington beats the Bengals this week. It'll be closed game. I have confidence in Alex Smith actually dead. They also have a better Coach to have a better defense. I mean that matters Washington is no slouch. They're actually they're competitive team and I I think what Ron Rivera's doing is turning around a culture and Building Things right off. Now Joe burrow against the washing and defense that'll be really fun. Really interesting. I say that every week about Joe burrow. I just love watching Joe burrow, I guess but Washington should win this game and I don't feel a lot of there's nothing I feel convicted in that but Washington should win it'll be closed. I hope it's interesting but Washington win this game the Steelers at the Jaguars. I was really impressed with the Jaguars last week. People are not talking about how well-coached they are and how much they're progressing. They're young players. I mean they at Green Bay on the road in a game. Nobody expects them to do. Well, they lost by four points and they were competitive and the young guys are stepping up and I just the Jaguars respect right there one and eight but they're they're they're developing even so it's a complete mismatch against Pittsburgh Pittsburgh. There are Super Bowl favor in my opinion or they should be at least they have a Hall of Fame quarterback and amazing codes a dangerous offense a great offensive line down. Really good weapons. They have a suffocating defense. I mean they have I'm going to try to name all the Benny Snell jr. They have James Conner. They have Juju Smith Schuster real McCloud Eric. Ebron Andre Johnson Chase Claypool. There's one more who's the other guy? I'm not listening James Washington. They've got eight incredible players on offense. They've got tjy they've got Mickey Fitzpatrick I could go on and on for way too long in forever. I don't need to steal is really good. They're going to beat the crap out of the Jaguars, but I will say I'm interested to see how much the Jaguars could be. In fact. It's a mismatch though. They're going to lose badly. I would think the Falcons and the Saints the Saints are the better team with a better Coach. They should win. I don't really care about anything my brain spoke with this game. Is dominated by one thing it's the fact that the Saints do not have Drew Brees. Oh, so what's going to happen? I don't know. I don't I don't care about that Ryan. I don't care about the same defense. I don't care about anything other than how does the Saints quarterback taysom Hill do Drew Brees out. He's got 11 fractured ribs to raise also forty-one years old. So at some point you raised going to leave New Orleans, who is there next guy? It's a tryout. It's an audition. He's on the injured reserve. It's gonna take at least 3 weeks. So the beginning of the tryouts starts today for taysom Hill does hazing they'll do well as he bad M do so badly that Jameis Winston comes in a second half and replace them. I don't know. I have no idea. I remember taste Mills thrown 18 passes in his NFL career. That's insanely low-wage Dependable for four years. I think it's Saints win this game because we're better team better, Coach again. But shamelessly all I care about. The only thing I care about in this game is how do the Saints quarterback or black quarterbacks do Jameis taste until starting? I don't know. I really want to watch how it tastes and he'll does and I can't wait to see what happens with the Saints backup quarterback. And that's really about all I care about in this game shamelessly the Patriots and the Texans. I think it's reasonable to believe that the Patriots will win the Texans fire their head coach Bill O'Brien spending my notes a Bill Belichick, which is totally wrong. I'm tired haven't slept yet. They've been a mess really I have no idea. I can't get a read on the Patriots. I made a whole video about it. I don't know. I I would think the Patriots won the Patriots are four and five the Texans are two and seven, but also the Texas interim head coach Romeo Crennel has a history. He used to work for Bill Belichick home. Super Bowls with Bill Belichick in New England, so I don't know I really, you know, it's a Patriots very well. No spellcheck very well and DeShaun Watson. The Texans quarterback is good enough to make anything happen. He really is a wild card here. He he's good enough to if he turns it on and you get some opportunities. He's gotta have helped but DeShaun Watson can they can beat you really anytime no matter who you are. So I'm picking the Patriots to win feels like a toss-up the Patriots are the Patriots, but I can't I have no I can't for the life of me. I can't think of what they're doing. So I I don't know the Dolphins and the Broncos the Dolphins are going to win this game. It's a tough matchup for Denver Drew lock is injured, but playing I fear Drew lock is going to struggle free at the injury took him. He's got a really good defense Miami's very very good on defense are the Raiders and Miami were bad there now good and we had two young quarterbacks. You were like against to I think to his bed and I don't have their better in every single category. They have a better Coach better defense better quarterback. Maybe I would say that maybe the receivers or the weapons on offense The Edge goes to Denver wage. Jerry jeudy just kills it. But you have you have you saving Howard and Byron Jones guarding Jerry jeudy and Tim Patrick. I mean, I I don't know how Denver wins this game. If Miami loses then they screwed up or something crazy happened where to who got hurt or something. Insane has to happen for Miami to lose this game to Denver on Sunday. The jack is Chargers. It's another easy one. The Chargers should win easily. It's the Chargers. They never make it easy though. So, unfortunately, I wish I could say confidently. Yeah. I mean I do say confidently the charges should win this game, but will they it's the Chargers they fight away every week to lose a game if anybody can find a way to lose to the Jets. God forbid it is the LA Chargers. So I I seriously though they have way more Talent on their team. They have a better coach in my opinion like significantly better Coach Anthony Lynn is I think generated actually in the NFL as a guy who I don't know why they're losing so many close games, but I think he knows what he's doing. He's I like him a lot. Maybe I may have been blinded by how much I like him. Justin Herbert is a way more talented a call back from the Jets have Sam darnold or if he's even play. I think I don't even care enough to do the research to know whether who's playing at quarterback for the Jets. I just don't even I don't want to watch the Jets and I've watched every game they played this year. I did not watch anymore. I just please please don't make me watch I'm tired of it and I the Jets are going to lose the Chargers had better win this game. And I expect Justin Herbert have a huge game. I do very very well against New York the New York Jets the green one. The Chiefs at the Raiders. A lot of people are picking the Raiders to win. I remember the Raiders beat down. City in week 5 and it's possible. They could sweep Kansas City, but I don't just anybody beat Kansas City twice in one year and maybe if you do what you do it in the play like here's the thing at the Raiders Joe's Kansas City a second time this year. If you're a Raider fan wouldn't you rather than do it in the playoffs and not waste their second Victory against them now, I mean cuz you're not going to win three games against them so long it's possible that the Raiders win. I believe Kansas City's going to win. It's hard to put together even one win against Kansas City. Let alone two in one year a lot of things have to go right and I loved how the Raiders are playing this year. I think they are having a great season. I think Derek Carr's criminally underrated actually playing very very well at events getting better. They're on the ball. Well, I still don't think that they beat Kansas City too often times in a row and twenty twenty, but I will say over mind you hear the things you have to do if you want to beat Kansas City because the Raiders did do it earlier this year and week 5, they kind of set a template and a press and they did all the things you age. To do they you need to play your best game against Kansas City. You have to get a little bit of luck. You have to make Kansas City pay when they make mistakes. They have a fumble a turnover in this field goal. You have to capitalize on Thursday and you have to go for it on fourth down like a lot maybe not every time there are some situations where you're backed up at stupid, but you don't want to punt a lot and you don't want to kick a lot of field goals. You want to go for it on fourth down you need touchdowns and first downs not punts and field goals. So you go for it on fourth down against Kansas City. If you want to beat them. I don't have faith. The Raiders can do it twice in the second game in a row against them. But I like the Raiders are better than the really really good. So I I understand what people are picking them. But I think Kansas City I bet I don't I don't know what they get says. I don't follow up gambling and stuff. But I would imagine Vegas agrees with me that I thought the Chiefs going to win this game against the Raiders Vikings Cowboys. You would think that the Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy. The former Packers head coach would know Mike Zimmer the Vikings head coach very well off. and in spite of that, I don't think it matters because the Cliffhangers I drink my water the Cowboys are awful. They're terrible. It doesn't matter how you scheme all you want. You're you're really bad team. Sorry, the Vikings are not a bad team. They're four and five. They're okay, but the Vikings defense is getting better and better and better by the day every time I watch them they're they're young and they're improving and they had they miss and pieces and it's covid-19. You've never heard of it don't matter if you're like who the heck is that? He's like a 7 million string running back who actually paid receiver in college and quarterback in high school was never played running back before he's lining up against the Cowboys. He's running for 600 yards. Like it's that kind of year for the Cowboys. They're awful and the Vikings going to win this game. I mean the Vikings are going to win I think pulling away against Dallas unless Kirk Cousins throws like 11 interceptions. This has been very hyperbolic the segment and this this topic about specifically the Vikings and the Cowboys but I Java Cooks seriously going for like two hundred yards. I mean he really is going to light up against against the Cowboys. The reason a jerk won't make a lot of mistakes cuz you won't have to Kirk Cousins isn't gonna be throwing the ball very much. So just going to hand it off hand that off hand it off hand off. It'll be boring the Cocker run down really. It's got to be it's going to be a fast game because they're going to run the ball a lot. It's going to be the clocks going to be moving the entire time and the Vikings should beat the Cowboys pretty easily. Again, it's strength against weakness. That's never good for the Cowboys. Eagles at Brown's got a lot of confidence the Browns this week. They run all very very well. They're very well suited the game was in Cleveland. They play good defense last week Baker Mayfield played a very clean game really infuriating. I did a whole rant about it. People kept saying Baker was bad last week cuz they didn't watch the game don't judge him on statistics and numbers and passing yards judge him on decision-making Baker with safe was clean was efficient last week at two guys run for over a hundred yards, of course your quarterbacks and have a low amount of passing yards. You don't need a lot from Baker Mayfield people like Baker needs to bounce back. What are you talking about? You didn't watch it. All it was swirling wind the ran the ball for over two hundred yards. I mean Nick Chubb and Kareem hunt had a hundred yards each more than that so long. I just I have no conscience of the Eagles this week. They looked lost many times this year at Carson Wentz. Their quarterback is struggling their injuries. The Browns are gonna win this game. I mean, there's no real debate in my heart. I've been really impressed with her head coach Kevin stefanski the new guy in Cleveland. He came over from the Vikings every week long regardless of how Baker does he's been uneven this week. I think the bye week was a good moment for him to reset Baker. Sorry, Kevin stefanski the head coach every single week has a good plant. His game plans are phenomenal the way he attacks defense is the way everything. I really You Gotta Give a lot of respect to Kevin stefanski whether Baker's the guy or not doesn't matter Kevin sees the right guy in Cleveland. I'm all in on him. He's phenomenal and I I just man the Browns going to be the Eagles on Sunday, I guess today. Lions Panthers could go either way. I really I almost want to pass on this one cuz I don't know Lions Panthers. It's Teddy Bridgewater's hurt the quarterback for the Panthers. So I mean the Panthers are solid. So, it's Detroit If Teddy Bridgewater plays and it was healthy. It'd be really interesting back-and-forth competitive game. I would believe but like I said, he's going to test this knee in the pre-game. He's hurt. I really I can't predict this game. I don't know. I don't have enough info and there's no way to find out until game time. If Teddy is going to play or not. In fact, they probably won't let me look it up. I'm curious is Teddy Bridgewater playing. I've I'm recording onto my computer. So I hope as I open a browser doesn't destroy my computer. I want to find out I'm really am fascinated is Teddy Bridgewater playing or not if my computer can even load we can you know, we can even go. Oh, here we go, Teddy Bridgewater. Teddy Bridgewater, I'm typing on the keyboard to hear the clicky Click Clacks. It's searching. He is inactive. Okay, PJ Walker starting soapy jaywalkers the right guy to play because I should do this more often. She Google stuff. I never do this ever my life. That's kind of fun. Actually. It'd be nice to get like a Jamie from Joe Rogan Googling for me. That'd be great. I don't have that though. I'm pulling in a living house. Not imagine. I don't know making sense. But PJ Walker starting that's off by the way. So I am going to say the lines are going to win this game, but I'm excited to watch PJ Walker actually. He was the XFL MVP. I I was kind of watch him live. I really like the right girl would ended than my next game to go to was Houston the Houston Roughnecks and he didn't happen. I was really disappointed people like will Grier should start in Carolina. No, no, no way Jose. Here's why you start PJ Walker other than the fact that I think he's better like right up front of that. He's also mobile. He can move around he can run will Grier can't run around. He's limited. You want a quarterback who can run around in Excel? Plays in the NFL on twenty-twenty especially if you were playing with a backup quarterback. So I love PJ Walker. I'm excited to watch him. I think Lions win this game now that I know that Teddy's out but I I don't know. I'm I'm actually I'm really excited to watch this game cuz I'm excited. Watch PJ Walker. I'm really that'll be fun. Lying should win PJ Walker is a wild-card. I don't know but I don't think he's no matter what he does. It probably won't be good enough to win cuz even thought it was hard task to beat the lines, but I'm excited to watch PJ Walker. How does he do against the alliance will find out Titans at Ravens again lines can win that game Titans at Raven's I believe the page win this game. They have more stability right now as an organization the Ravens lost their tight end Nick Boyle. He's a blocking tight end of a huge loss in the running game plus the more Jackson the quarterback Ravens is going through Growing Pains. I would say that he is I said that's earlier in the show in the full episode for watching or listening Lamar Jackson. It's figure out who he wants to be as a quarterback. What parts of other people's games. Is he going to take remember he won the NFL MVP and I think in a healthy way, he was like I want to be better. I don't want to be a guy who runs around a lot. I'm a guy who can play for fifteen years and throw the ball at a high level and learning how to become a better passer anytime you go through a growth and discomfort. It's going to be ugly for a little bit. And so Lamar Jackson right now boss is going through Growing Pains. It's not all perfect. It's not a pretty it's not all good. But as he's fighting to get better and even though they're struggling way the end result is going to be better. So I think tomorrow is going through a year of growth and a year or frustration that's going to be good in the long term. But because of that I've got a lot of confidence in Tennessee is going to win this game. I remember Baltimore got carved up in the running game by off the Patriots running back Damien Harris Damien Harris had a hundred and 21 yards rushing against Baltimore. So imagine if that's a Damien Harris can do You you literally I know who David Harris is you might have never even known the name Damien Harris. You certainly know the name Derrick Henry if gaming Harris can do that against Baltimore. What's Derrick Henry off Titans offense of line going to do Titans are going to be Baltimore today. Packer school, so I'm excited for this game feels like a toss-up. The Colts are very good up front. It's going to be like it's going to be great game. The Colts are going to challenge Green Bay and Green Bay is going to challenge the Colts. I really I'm excited for both this matchup. I guess I'm going to pick the Colts to win. I am I feel like that's stupid. I don't know. I'm in a bank on Philip Rivers doing well, which another thing gosh, you know, this production is going to be wrong. I'm picking the Colts to win. I'm going to be wrong. The Packers are probably going to win see I don't even know I the Colts have to run the ball very well and dominate time of possession keep the ball away from Aaron Rodgers, you know, the Colts defense is better than people realize they're very good upfront. I'm really curious whether or not Green Bay can run the ball against Indianapolis gave me home in Indianapolis, by the way. But Rodgers vs River it's going to be very very fun. And I'm excited to watch it. I think final game of the week. Yeah, the Rams and the Buccaneers Monday Night Football. I hope I don't know where the games I think it's actually in Tampa, which is unfortunate cuz I kind of wish it was in that cool. So by Stadium, I showed my video girlfriend a video of the Rams Stadium yesterday. She went it's like it's like it's only a 24-hour drop-off to go there. She was like, oh my God, he really wants to go now. This is likely going to be the best Monday Night Football game of the year. I am so excited. I believe the Buccaneers is going to win a close game. It's a great matchup defense is very good. But the Bucs defense can also be very good as well. So what's waves me here. The reason why I'm going to pick the Buccaneers to win this game. Is Tom Brady Tom Brady? I am taking last week against Carolina as I'm reading that game as oh, well, I saw was he had a couple of really good throws to Mike Evans. I sneeze finally figuring out how to use Mike Evans another week at the Antonio Brown on the system. My my belief is that man if you have Antonio Brown Mike Evans, Chris Godwin Gronkowski Cameron brate Ronald Jones, you have so many weapons around Tom Brady and it's Tom Brady. I feel Tampa Bay's offense is just about to heat up and do really really well and they're going to get dangerous. I feel like the process of that started against Carolina and like I've always said the person you should not doubt in the NFL is Tom Brady Tom Brady and LeBron James every single time people want to doubt them and call them out and say their careers over or the tanking and this or that it's not going to work the cooler. They're falling over the edge. If every single time. They these two players LeBron James and Tom Brady find a way. To exceed everybody's expectations. It's uncanny it's crazy. I I am not going to doubt, I think I would regret it. If I pick the Rams to win I would have read like what a stupid move or you're an idiot sack. You should have it Tom Brady and the Rams have a stud Corner Jalen Ramsey. Unfortunately, he can't cover everybody. Remember you have you have three like Pro Bowl receiver's and two really good friends and Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady and it's like it's Angeles and the Buccaneers defense is pretty good. By the way. So the Buccaneers are going to close game cuz that's rants. I respect the ramps are very good team. They have Aaron Donald they have Jalen Ramsey. They have a nice very very well in Seattle last week. I think Buccaneers win a close game and beat the Rams on Monday Night Football guys. It's all they have an hour 20 in we'll see if it'll probably an hour eighteen maybe cuz I got to cut a minute or two out of the going to the bathroom. There was like a moment where you didn't notice I try to cut it and I'd I'd go to bathroom. Yeah, I I loved I appreciate you. It's 10:23 in the morning. It won't come out to 11 now the predictions episode. I apologize. I did the best. I could I I haven't slept I I don't know will be better tomorrow. I'm going to have smoke or expectation for each episode and be disciplined and I love you. I'll see you tomorrow. I really appreciate have a great day, but fan we are done.

Debate Amongst Friends Season 5 Episode 10

"We are not Sports Center. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to debate amongst friends. I am a DI professor John, Cohoes over here is stock lease at the podcasting beast and we're ready to provide you with another fun edition of sports news and Analysis and the reeds. No. YES Prep profit question. So what's going on? Unfortunately, I had a chance to talk to the owner took well as the team president of business amongst friends and they made the decision to move on for me. I Agree with their decision. There's no blood loss but there and you know, we both decided to go to different direction. doc that was a parody of the Bill O'Brien exit interview conference off that he had that I feel like you just did that last week. I did actually like the week before last somebody else got fired and you did almost the exact thing, but how bout that? I had to do it again. No, that's pretty terrible. I mean, but let's just be honest. I mean it's it probably was a long time, this needed to happen. He was definitely dancing on Jeff Fisher territory. I felt like even Jeff Fisher was like why is he still employed? Yeah, it was definitely a bad time. I don't know what the Texans are going to do. Obviously, he was there general manager and area coach and that's probably where they went wrong. I never really believed in that, you know, dual role of head coach and general manager, but this wasn't it so long now, they got to find a general manager and a new head coach. I didn't see who they bumped up to be the coach. Did you did you see that Romeo for now? Yep with Romeo. I mean, I know that he'll be able to get the team. At least he'll be able to steer the ship while they figure out what they're going to do. I wouldn't be surprised if under Romeo they actually perform better because she's such a respected coach. But he's also seventy-three years old and that was the other part. Yeah, he's also seven years old. I mean this was this started to an absolute cluster from you know, as you mentioned Bill O'Brien becoming a GM as well, as you know, retain his duties as a head coach and then just a blues at those movies just literally turned into means, you know, I'll give you the Sean Watson for a pack of Skittles kind of thing. Buy a lot of you who really question like I've did really crippled this franchise cuz I believe they don't have a first-round pick for like the next two to three years. I believe God. Yeah, which is crazy. You know, I like this and I mean, okay, like I think in football, it's okay not to have a first-round pick like it's okay pic turned into like Franchise a you know, yeah, it's Hit or Miss. Yeah. I mean you could I don't think he was really drafting that well anyway, no choice so it didn't really matter like yeah, some of the players are not to be very very well, but if they're not retaining those guys anyway, who cares about your drafting so yes, I would say suck. Using the pics that they have they can still make a pretty solid team. Obviously if you if you look at a team, like for example, the New England Patriots, they've never had a pic, you know above what twenty-five you know for the last couple of years. So they've turned their pics and made some really really good players. So yeah, but that's comparing like grass, you know decision making to whatever the heck we want to describe what was happening with the Texans organization. Unfortunately well below Bros, we got from the New England cloth. So I thought that was the whole idea. That was the whole idea Romeo Crennel cut from New England cloth unique. These guys are like cut from that cloth. So across this is what they're supposed to be. That's what they expected. I mean is they said they were going to get a Bill O'Brien. You've been working under, you know, Bill Belichick for all these years. I think that he should be able to come in and do exactly what Bill did and granted the Texans had some very successful years. Not like Hey, we're going to the Superbowl successful, but they have some good defense has You know, there was tons were DeShaun Watson looked amazing and there was a times where everything was clicking. It just so happened that many clicking no more New Jersey now are the Texans looking to rebuild again because they look pretty bad on Sunday. If it's crazy, but when you think about it, like they didn't have to rebuild until they traded their number one receiver away. They traded off who's putting in work in Arizona, by the way. Yeah, and I mean they traded way the number one receiver you bring in a running back who's trying to redeem himself, you lose a lot of your defense of lime. And yeah, JJ wash and in and out of the you know the fold it might be time to potentially move on from him because he's getting a little older you have an offensive lineman a subpar at best and that's coming from a tab a fan Yang and you know DeShaun Watson, he's running for his life. I feel like that first game of the season was definitely a dumpster fire like against the Chiefs. They really looked terrible. They look like they they look like they showed up for scrimmage. And then it just didn't get any better. So I definitely didn't answer where I don't know if it's going to be a complete rebuild but it's going to seem like a rebuild. Yes. So speaking of them rebuilding or the potential or try to rebuild there's other coaches that are potentially on the hot seat dock. You know, we talked about some of them on the show off the podcast and let's let's go a little bit more in-depth some of these coaches first off. Let's talk about Adam gase her head coach of the New Jersey New York football Jets say you want me to me to say say when I said earlier? Yeah. That this guy should have never been even hired. He didn't say in the right pitch, but I allow folks. He's never even been hired. There we go. Not now is good. Let's let's make sure we you know, we do that. Okay, let's be honest. He should have never been hired. The guy has not so far so far. His career right bulb is 3438. Yep, right. What? Is this your second year with the Jets third year with the Jets second year with jets the Jets. Oh Thirty and thirty eight am so granted not a horrible win-loss record. I mean 1338 it's not horrible. But he's done nothing to show that he deserved to have gotten this job judging. Yes. I don't remember who the other candidates are obviously who who they were before. He got the job, but I didn't think he should have gotten this job and I take that back. I think I said earlier that he was Seattle's offensive coordinator. He was actually the office coordinator of the Broncos and then the Bears correct and then he became as I think I was thinking of somebody else then he became the head coach of the Dolphins. Yes, but I didn't believe that he should have gotten this job. I don't know again who the other coaching. I don't remember if you around that time, unfortunately. Yeah, I don't know off, you know what they were thinking but gaze was not the right choice Miami he went in and six first season great then Thursday at 6 and 10 and then he went seven and nine. It was no reason to take you know at the three years, right? Yep, twenty twenty-three and twenty-five. It was no reason to bring him a second head coaching position, but it's Jets football team after going twenty-three and twenty-five and in comes to New York first season seven and nine, which is for the jet 4079 perspective. You know, when you are going against the Patriots are going against the bills for 79 is not horrible right now. They're oh and for yes, boss. It's time to to sound the alarm over under week 6 he gets fired talk. I think they're going to let them ride this out. Looks like speaking of letting their ride out. Let's go to the next head coach head coach of the Detroit and I don't mean basketball. I mean Alliance, Matt Patricia stock. I feel bad for Matt Patricia. I feel bad for him because the first two seasons he really didn't have Matthew Stafford. And you know to me I don't know I just feel bad for him because I don't know if he'll get the opportunity to actually make this team competitive, but I also don't know. I also don't know because I'm not you know in Detroit like sports arena. I also don't know his philosophy either, you know, like I don't know like he doesn't he's not it's not like it's not like watching the Patriots. I'm not sure of what we're seeing in Detroit like you don't understand what kind of scheme That they're running for both sides of all right, and I just feel like the the Bill Belichick disciples get a lot of flak for just being a field billing cycle. I could understand that do you think he would survive the season? Are you he'll be one of the coaches that will be getting the call on Black Monday or Tuesday or whatever thing that is? Yeah X. All right. Let's go to the next coach of the Chicago Bears the Atlanta Falcons Dan Quinn. Subway guy one or two more losses in boy right there, man. I mean, wow wow, man, like, oh my goodness. Yeah. I can I think I think if there was a coach on this list, that should be fired. He is number two on that list. after Adam gase Let me see who a dependency was on the left. Yeah, I can understand that. It will get to the other three on this list in a second folks. So No, yeah, I can agree with that. I mean I expect he's been in a Superbowl hangover for the past three years. You know what but honestly, I think it's just a fact that same week one you lose this see outside r18. I think it really comes down to week two and three where you're winning and then either of these big leads. Yes. And obviously yesterday or Monday for those groups losing to the Packers disrespect. It's okay. Now if this week if they lose to the Panthers then then it's time to light that seat up a little bit more hotter there boil. Yeah, it might be. Might be added oil and but luckily luckily for them. They don't play the Bucs until later on it. It should be a good or bad thing. Exactly. Don't play actually don't play the bugs for the Saints until later on. They don't play the Saints until November. Yes. They haven't even played any divisional games and they're already Owen for so that's pretty rough. Yeah, that is pretty rough game this week against the Panthers. They'll actually play the Panthers twice before even get to the Saints. So yeah, exactly. So yeah, I don't know let's let's keep going I guess. All right the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers game Deal in I don't know about that one. Yeah, this is the one I was like, I don't know if he's on the hot seat. Just like a bruise really good. He's very good. He's very good. I think the difference between him and a lot of the other teams is that I feel like empty lives still has control of the locker room. Yes, and when you look at the scores only reason I can see him getting fired is a look at the scores and this is something that I said last year about the Bucks, you know, all of the losses are within seven points. Yes, you know, she could be the Bangles sixteen and thirteen they lost the Chiefs 2320 respectable Panthers exactly huge respect. They lost to the Panthers 2116 a lawsuit bucks 31-38 off if he gets fired. It's only because of the close losses, but he's going to heck of a job. I will say that he's done a heck of a job. I don't I don't know if I agree with this one. Yeah. I think maybe give them a chance with Justin Herbert can go from there. I also hope they agree with you there. So next coach Jacksonville Jaguars head coach wage Maroni. I don't know if it's a more. I don't know what's going on in Jacksonville. They made a mistake. I think they're still recovering from all the hoopla the past couple of Seasons. Yes, I don't know what they I don't know what happened. But all of a sudden they just started by getting rid of people and I don't know why. I don't know why you know, you get rid of like pretty much everybody that took them to the playoffs. They got rid of yes. So right now they're sitting at 1 and 3 months. They have a win over the Cults. A lot of the Jaguars dolphins dolphins. Terrible. You made a loss to the Dolphins. Yes, I said you said cost of the Jaguars? You said lots of the Jaguars. That's why. I thought maybe I was going on to a different address. I'd love to the Dolphins but yet lures the Dolphins and then they lost it a Bangles. Yeah, which The Bangles are actually playing pretty well. So yeah, which I mean for those who actually want to sit there and watch the game at the Bengals are playing really well with Joe burrow. I mean, it might be one two and one but yeah, you're playing pretty well considering yeah. And that's what them not even utilizing their develop receiver. But so far on the definitely understand why he would be on there, but it's not really his fault. I think it's more of whatever they have. Going on cuz it seems like they're doing some type of rebuild and they beat him come out and say hey you're rebuilding exactly. I do agree with that and finally moved to Denver Broncos head coach Vic fangio. I think this is another situation where this is not really his fault, but he might end up being collateral damage. Origin, I don't think so because like people have a quarterback. All right. Keep the man of quarterback. I mean maybe a pretty good the other day versus the Jets but it's the Jets. Yes, you know, I mean like but he had to go out there with a freaking third-string. Yeah, and if I come on like what do you expect here, but even still to hang with the Titans, you know only you know lose like to talk to hang with the Steelers and lose box 5. I mean, obviously the Bucks game was closer than the score says, I think the folks actually stuck it out. And obviously I'm closing out the Jets on that Thursday last week. It was pretty pretty good. Obviously. We'll see how they don't get the Patriots in the features a little banged up yet. We will get into later and then obviously I'm hoping threat I don't think so. I think they're going to give them a little bit of time especially this whole quarterback thing is is really rough. Yeah could be honestly we could be looking at a situation. Position where nobody gets fired because of Covent possibly, you know as possible. Yeah outside of Dylan Bryant. Yeah. Yeah, I mean Bill O'Brien. I think they just heat set to ages and maybe maybe then click but it could be a situation where anybody else kind of gets a pass likes. Yeah, x 12 Oaks will be right back with some horrid debate amongst friends right after this. And we're back. Ladies and gentlemen, we're going to stay on the Gridiron. We got games to talk about doc. Let's talk about this Titan stairs. So we just we just got word that the the game was actually supposed Poland due to a covid-19 prank actually so that game happening. It stinks because you know and I think I was telling somebody earlier that the Titans cuz you know you was bragging to the Titans are undefeated and I was like not making an asterik home. They might have lost the Steelers, you know, not to get an asterik. Now. What do we do? You know, I mean ever no no. So as I know you got all these undefeated team lists and the Titans and Steelers are both on there and it's like we know that one of those things not supposed to be on there that's nails but I postpone first covid-19 and postponement. Of course, we had a whole host of games that were postponed and moved and you know pushed around you have people getting tested everywhere, including quarterback Cam Newton and that was rough it was it was it was rough to watch. I'm sure the Steeler fan for life you disappointed that their team didn't play as well as the Dukes Titans, but for the people that did watch the New England game versus the Chiefs. I'm pretty sure they would have rather became just been pushed back instead of instead of having to endure what they had to see. Oh God Brian Hoyer got to start vs. the power ranking number one, Kansas City Chiefs 26 to 10:00 Brian Hoyer looked like Brian freaking lawyer. You know that that system's clip of you know, watching someone getting beat up at at pans over to a couple of kids and one of the kids is like that's enough. He's already dead. That was the Patriots and that's not hating on the Patriots. This is just what happened. I hate it because you're scared of came in and you know, he tried to do something and want to throw into picks himself, which I'm just being a casual fan at this point cuz I didn't watch the rest of that game. But with the numbers don't look good. They obviously I don't know but Brian Hoyer is definitely not it. I will say this home interest you completed really really well for most of this game. This game was really close. And this game actually kept me and the fantasy running. Yes, because they held my thumbs down to just two touchdowns. They held Claude Clyde edwards-helaire 264 yards. No touchdowns. Sammy Watkins, they held him down. So like this game kept me kept me that hopes alive. Did you end up winning your fantasy? No wind up losing that bad man, Aaron Rodgers. Speaking of which. I don't know if you saw the news on that, but it looks like there was a scare for some covert op brakes happening in Green Bay. So it looks like they're going to be barring fans from getting to that Stadium out there. Obviously when I read it and again just being a casual fan I didn't read the whole article. I just did we're booking. Deadline I took it that they were scared based on am being honest on society in a way things are right around the world and no Wisconsin if I'm not mistaken was becoming a hotspot if I'm not mistaken. Yeah, Wisconsin and police South Dakota. Yeah, so I don't blame them for wanting to hold on and just say hey, let's let's chill when the fans and I think we talked about this before the season started, you know, letting them use their way into allowing fans then, you know twenty 30% capacity. Not not if not if you're in Texas and and watching them Boise. How much how many how much of a lowering I didn't even look this last game on Sunday attendance was 25000. So $25, sixty five or seventy thousand so like that. I mean, it's pretty pretty low still. I mean, it's under fifty percent I'd say about twenty 30% off, you know, they're going to try and push, you know, I just think it's too risky. I think players don't dance play without fans has not been terrible as I thought it would be. You know, it's not as bad but you know, they also want to try to make sure they get that money as well to know absolutely but they're still making money from you know sponsors and all the crap merchandise as long as like exactly hands off the merchandise. Yeah, AT&T Stadium capacity is 80,000 23rd 25,000. That's pretty maybe they'll go up to 30,000 maybe like a pit at forty for a little bit and that that's about it. But just keep those little cardboard cutouts of people and life will be good to go. But speaking of the Packers they're ranked number two on the NFL Power Rankings. They win against tank wins Falcons and let's just say I'm a kind of flipped. Yeah, they got packed up and sent back to freaking Atlanta Aaron Rodgers all day long Kevin Durant. He said, you know me knew who I am. I know exactly exactly who I am. So people the people that are who do you think you are I am I So we got a chance to also watch Jared. He's Raiders, you know, the Grinders versus the Buffalo Bills who I'm pretty well bills of mafioso. Bill's Mafia right number four on the power rankings and Josh Allen actually got hurt in the game midway through figured he was going to be okay. Yep, you know, he's okay and we'll look like he put a little shocking shock absorber on and came back. He was fine. Yeah, but the but the bills are for know where I know about that. I think people when they laughed cuz there's a few, you know analysts when I was actually watching those shows before it started a season, you know still need to set the Patriots can win the division like the bills are no joke Josh Allen. Is that dude folks? He played absolutely tremendous. He'd been playing tremendously this entire year and one of the things that. And I talked about following their playoff loss. Last season was Josh Allen need to step it up. Obviously Josh a I was a fan of the show our long-running gag, and he heard will be at this age and he's showing it Honestly, the I mean the Patriots still could win the division is no question about it and obviously free and cam changes the dynamic of the division. Obviously, we know that the Jets aren't trying to change and the Dolphins even though glorious wasn't on the list of coaches on the hot seat. I mean, it could easily be him. Yeah. Well, you know doesn't get two wins right now and obviously they're running on Fitzpatrick, but you know, that's only going to last so long exactly but you gotta bills for know they played very well against the food and grinders from and hopefully they can turn that around as well as I know Jay Rich wants to You know see a winning product out there. He'll be he'll be asking you for a Jon Gruden's job and a little bit if they keep playing the way they played exactly to the last name. I wanted to talk about this only because I've realized something and it didn't dawn on me. And of course, you know, I know I'm just a small-town guy, you know a Small Town Guide but I was watching the highlights for the Browns and then bullies them Cowboys and it don't change yet since entering the lead like, this is all Odell Beckham Jr. Play for The only plays football now to beat the Cowboys having he always put up big numbers against him boys. Oh my God, he relishes in the moment to play the Cowboys. It's like like ever since ever since the the catch that made him a household name. He has dedicated his career to flex his muscles only against the Cowboys only against the Cowboys. I think it's more they they finally decided or they finally had the Revelation that oh crap. We got although Beckham Junior on the team. Let's talk to him the ball. He just plays better his routes or Chris people. He puts in a way. It's a whole new Gear Well, I had a chance to I had a chance to watch the first half of the game. And of course I mentioned before I was getting me some fried chicken. So I started to miss a little bit of the second half, but they were actually getting him the ball earlier on in the game which compared to the previous three weeks wasn't really happening. So maybe it's a one-off. I kind of wish running off. He wasn't running hard like I watch them play against Washington. I watched that whole game and he was not running hard at all. It's just about the Cowboys. Yeah, he just likes beating up on the Cowboys. I just think he relishes in his mother. Oh my God. We got the Cowboys today my inner giant wash come out and play. That's actually pretty hilarious but speaking of the Cowboys what's going on with that defense? I mean we talked about we talked about the secondary, you know, and we we we've heard and read and read all the Rave about that front. Seven effort said it look booty. I did look kind of movie out their actions, but actually the whole team is not not where I would have thought they would be dark the holds. What was the what was it that I kept saying about back Prescott and you you finally agreed use like, oh, okay. I kind of started to see that now. I mean in layman's term you said he's really demanded just he's not going to be the man to win. Nope. You know, like which this year? I mean, he's really putting up some big numbers like I mean huge numbers, but just not related and not take into wins. But it also and this is going to be a big issue is if they don't win, you know, it's going to be a big issue where they might you might have mentioned this. I think you did. I'm going to say you did they might want to get rid of they probably won't they might want to get rid of seek? No, they just got to pay them. That's what I'm saying. 812 carried 54 yards. That's not going to do it. They're boil. I mean it's not going to do it. If you know, he's only averaging like to yards-per-carry. I mean 14 carries last week 34 yards was the Seahawks that's not going to do it. They're boil. I mean also to they can't really run the ball if Seattle scoring so fast, too. I mean a transmission versus the Falcons 22 carries eight nine yards their boil. Well, you know, what happened that Falcons game though, you know, what happened to that game Rams game 22 carries a charge that's getting close, but that is not going to do it. They're not going to do it at all and I agree. I don't think the Cowboys know what kind of team they want to be. And and this is the same song and dance with them. They don't know if they I don't think they know if they want to be a Power Team. They don't know if they want to be a passing team. Don't even know if they actually want to play defense McCarthy is it? Historically, he's a passing guy. He's not really a running guy. That's why Rodgers by like him so much. That's why you know, it worked because they were passing passing heavy heavy and it was all good. Obviously, they don't have, you know, The Clapper anymore. You know, they don't have you know that offensive system anymore or they're running a lot of zone. So an honest, I know a lot of SLI, are you in all honesty is a offensive. Group might not work anymore. Like the offers a line might not work cuz I saw that gets sacked One play and I was like just like this would be like a bad football. Yeah that was years ago not moving the people I there are they still got pretty solid players and these are they now move people because they're running different plays. They just took so yes, but in Boise landing on turnaround one and three that's not going to cut it in Jerry Jerry's world. That's not going to cut it Jerry Jerry Jones and Jerry Bob's home chassis J5. I don't I know I know they have them boys. Yeah, they're pretty salty like thet salt that you know, people had to consult their General physician because of sodium level intakes. It's pretty shiny and all that. But the last game which I know you were dying to talk about those compa Bay binoculars. No, we're not doing right now, We're not when I am doing that go charges go. Well like no Chargers know so Year is getting was such a emotional rollercoaster for you? No, I was actually perfectly fine the whole game again. You receive my text out of Unison. Yes, you look at my text when I sent it then it would change once again in my defense. I was getting Fried Chicken. Justin Herbert they put you know shouts Anthony Lynn and the staff they put together a great game plan, you know, obviously they had to shift from a game plan because Austin ekeler got hurt early in the game, which I kind of forgot all about that, you know, we could have definitely used that as maybe a fire but that's that's quite all right, but we told him up. I mean it was pretty terrible. And they're running game pretty much didn't recover. Actually just having the most guys five carries of 14 yards off, but shout out to freaking Keenan Allen. I mean he had a catch of a 62-yard see, you know, nothing huge some of the other people beat us four touchdowns, you know, Keenan kind of did a lot of the Dirty Work. Yep and get some really incredible grabs. I love how so many people don't include Keenan Allen when it comes to like top 10 receivers in the league. I don't think I think they do tax and talk five is dead. Yeah. Usually it's up to the top five is pretty tough. Especially when on the other side and you know, this is huge on the other side. You got my Heavens, you know, who even on a I want to say partially probably sprained ankle or Twisted a go. He had 7 catches 422 yards. Yeah, so it was dead. Impressive to see what happened. So if you didn't watch the game, you just saw the highlights you seen, you know, Tampa Bay went down 24/7 the first half or no 2024 240D upward and then you seen Tom Brady say yeah after that picks a girl picks up earlier. You want to see something watch. That's actually exactly what happened. it's almost like it was like, oh my God, like we're watching this and like I'm like, okay like he's really throwing this ball. Hey, there, it is. Bull. Twenty Yards down the field on a dime. Yep. Just so your favorite Scotty Miller Scotty Miller and then he'll do another pass to OJ Howard. Yep, and then and then actually finally he do with the drunk that actually connected between nine yards. I thought you get there. Oh my God, he but I expect either drunk or I guess can break. Somebody's gotta take these caches. There's OJ Howard out for the year off which was a file, but I just realized that I have another one so it's fine. You know so you can breathe or Rob Gronkowski going to step up but I mean, oh great. I mean he really played really really well out there. He literally said, do you know who I am? Come back. Okay for the record if Tom Brady actually says that postgame I'm losing my mind laughing wage but speaking of poor defensive play. I didn't think and I said just before the game the defensive backs were Tampa Bay Packers aren't experienced. You know, and I wrote this on at Tampa Bay Post some people talk about everything now granted holding Keenan Allen, you know under a hundred yards to me is huge week one. We hold one of the best receivers in the game, you know, quote unquote, you know, Michael Thomas three three catches 17 yards. Yeah, you know and then the news currently still out to write we when people out how do you put out wage? Thomas we put out Christian McCaffrey and oh, yeah, so we so you see we couldn't keep we putting people out, you know, but it's like we holding some we holding the main receivers down but it's the supporting receivers that are getting to be cancer. So I mean our deepest affects our young so he'll get this better off Chris Rock you tell people when you think about it the front seven, you know, you have Lavonte David you have you got you got that that veteran presence in the front said the back there's nobody that's played over three to four years. So they're all kind of just learning together on the Fly Like There's No veteran should have been great if we would assign somebody if he was actually like a mentor type, you know in Eric, you know, we talked about this earlier. They're very wrong. Either Eric Berry or or Chamas if Carol Tom should come in and actually chill out for a little bit and that's not happening. And I don't think I don't think you want oral Thomas on your roster at all cause obviously I would have loved to have very very I'm surprised that he hasn't gotten picked up, but I thought he retired but like officially retired. I didn't think so, but you could be right you could be right actually have no idea. It just says that he's a free agent. I know in Madden, he's a free agent, you know, and I I just I just go with that. But yeah, the game was pretty good campus currently. Oh, he's taking an attentional sabbatical dead. Can't be ranked number eight in the power ranking and the charges go charges. Go no charges. No are currently off that number 18. So Tampa Bay back in the top ten. I think they were ten last week. Yep moving up to eight three and one number one in the division looking good. The only thing that we didn't mention in the power rankings is the Baltimore Ravens. And they had their win against that Washington team now Washington team. Yes and quick recap the top five wage. All right. Number 5 the Pittsburgh Steelers number for the Buffalo Bills number three the Baltimore Ravens number to the Green Bay Packers, and number one the reigning defending Undisputed National Football League World Champions, Kansas City Chiefs. You can make the argument that the Seahawks would be number five. Yes, I'm actually I'm not sure why they decided to move. B I guess they can move the Steelers down from 4, but I don't know why we didn't move the Seahawks up just leave it outside of it. I can agree with that. Yeah. Don't know what I mean. Yeah, but doc if you had to give your top five months after week for who would be in your top 5 dead or alive and that's all they would be pretty much the same thing, it would be. The Ravens down underneath the bills. Actually. I probably remove the Ravens down the number five. Yep, you know until we see what happens with home users and Titans are thing where Tampa is is good where the Rams is is, okay. Probably which yeah, I think I think the way they have it is pretty good. So it probably would be Chiefs Packers bills. And then it would be Seahawks Ravens. I actually would completely agree with you. I would probably put Seahawks number three down. please I think I will put Seahawks number three. I feel like they're not getting as much respect. I mean they put up a number 6. On this list. I don't think they're getting as much respect. I mean and it's probably more because of the defense but you know, like you said about your bucks, they'll get better. Plus they have people that's injured as well to like, I think they could be number three easily. I kind of just want to quietly make the playoffs for Tampa honestly, I mean I'm beyond. You know make the playoffs just just tap it in. I mean right now you're in the driver's seat for your division. So no just gotta keep it up. We could just tap it in and it's it's quietly like before the season. Everyone's talking about the Buccaneers now just a little peeps. Yes, I'm ready to touchdowns. Oh, yeah, it's great. It's a little just know that with that folks would be right back with the two-minute drill right after this. You know.

"Everyone needs more vacation right. The new united gateway card knows how to take you away with great travel rewards and no annual fee. Ever the wait for vacation is over tap now or visit united gateway card dot com to apply. Bill quarterback ratings very. This is the sean sounds very. Show cry welcome in on a monday morning. I guess we call victory monday the the most complete game this football teams played all year. I know it's against the patriots. I don't care. Patriots still pretty good and formidable team defensive effort and other thought process is the. You'll hear this if everybody if we played like this every week we'd have a chance to be in the hunt haven't played like this every week. You got to enjoy this. One still got gain yes crazy. Two of your three wins. You've been gained in can't rush for if you're going to keep going for can't rushed for nineteen yards two running backs can't do it gotta get better but by far and you got. I mean i've seen this watson's most complete game this year. Not even close not even not even close. He played he looked. Now that was that was another level advancement red zone. Throw the ball out of the back of the endzone. Instead of take a sack. The ball was thrown with elasticity with proper trajectory on a regular basis. Good decisions on time through a couple of seem routes. That were that were righteous. He used his feet properly to step out of a few of me does a really good job of setting guys up to the reason why he can escape. Left and right or east and west is you guys would see it on your tv screen. Because he always takes a little false step up as he's climbing the pocket which gets people to collapse and then when they do that he quickly regained his real estate and gets outside the pocket and they lose their contain which allows him to get on the edge and either run or make a throw. It's happening it's happening. Did it again yesterday. It's almost like it's planned by him to drop back sitting pocket and when they start to pressuring him to step up and when you step up guys all the sudden taken underneath charge to try and go get him and what he does is he reestablishes and comes back out and escapes east and west as they've given up their contained which is no for defensive outside contained people but he doesn't on a regular base threw the ball from the pocket. Their defense stepped up. Jj watt played. Well yesterday justin reed. Had what i look. Look look to me like it was the best game of his career yesterday can i. They made some nice open-field tack right tackling. They had to they. It was the tackling that the tackles they made. Yesterday were really. I mean the effort. And i hated to see how it happened but when it was roby. Who came through blew up the guy trying to block him and went below him and made the tackle on birkhead. Now i didn't. It was unfortunate. The horrible the injury to birkhead to have him get him carted off the field. The play itself and went in there was no intent to hurt anybody but guy was on the edge to come and block birkhead. And i believe it was roby. I'm pretty sure who jumped. Who dove underneath the the blocker and got down and made the tackle on birkhead and then the sad thing about it is. We saw the birkhead joe burrow. Yesterday we saw some people had to be carted off because they injuries. And that's not what you want to see. And i know you see those hates you know what's coming. Yeah yeah and that was a helmet straight to the kneecap. It looked like to me. So i don't know the severity of these and we won't go down. Not only that one. But around the league borough and the rest of it but it The one birkhead didn't look but it was a it was a hell of an effort. I'm talking about to get in position. Never liked to end an injury for anybody but they tackled well. Linebackers played. Well i i thought the run offense was putrid. Their pass protection was good. No sacks yesterday good route running kiki. Qt got into the mix what he lives on a milk carton right so it was their most complete game and it led to a victory. They gave up. It's a novel concept. Would you protect the football. You can find you. Stop somebody for rushing the football for over one hundred for one hundred and seventy yards. You got a chance to win. Watson will like i said if that watson shows up every week then i keep saying there's another level to his game. Yesterday was another level that was by. You can give me the numbers. Or he's had bigger statistical. Your the yesterday was his best in a year overall. I'm just telling you. It was his best game at twelve months and he's had a lot of good ones. There wasn't a moment where it was like. He was part of the issue of the offense to a series. I thought gosh dang it. What is he doing now. He missed a couple throws who doesn't he was better at like. I said while everybody else wants the great throw completion. Who doesn't and he made a couple seem throws. It were phenomenal yesterday. I mean some great throws and buying time and getting through progressions thing was in the red zone. When you're trying to score points he didn't like it was about to throw it out of the back of the end zone and you say well. We'll walk through because there was nobody opened and instead of taking a sack and put yourself in long artist situations it you know. They put themselves in. Patriots had some penalties yet yesterday. Which gave the texans. They were more disciplined yesterday. Everything they did. So it's the little things that for me to watch him elevate yes. He played a better football game then. He's played all year long and to me. It wasn't close. He's had some other good games. Don't misunderstand me. But yesterday. If i'm going through and this guy's numbers have been really good. Yesterday wasn't just a numbers day for me yesterday. That looked like a quarterback who is frigging in that class of the top dudes talking about from the start of the game to the and even though they went three and out or i think it was three and out but their first series. They didn't score in watching they punted. They actually came back and put some points on the board so they weren't in a chase mode the whole game. They hung around did their thing. Put some pressure. On new england camps still throws we can set his feet that mid range twenty eighteen to twenty yard comeback and dig rowden frigging rip that throw but pressured him. Enough didn't give up in other gave the big home run early but we're fortunate enough to to keep things they never let it get extended and they put pressure on him the whole day so for a team rarely be rushed for nineteen yards and with your backs and win a game. They did yesterday. Defense tackled well stepped up now. I'm not. I'm not getting carried away. They're still gonna make the playoffs. And i'm not getting carried away to think that you know. Oh my gosh. They've arrived there three and seven and they played good yesterday. They played poorly last week or the week before they played pretty good against jacksonville. I mean finding or two weeks before whatever. It was good enough to win but this was their best football game period this year. And i don't know about offense defense. The only thing about it is you're gonna you can't run the ball for twenty yards and minus watson's n win you. Just can't you're not going to beat good teams. That way is not good. He's good he's just not a good every down here he's a spot back. Who has a player who has to be a starting back because the starting backs hurt and does not better than him. They don't have as good as their starting running. They don't have a starting running back. They got a bunch of twos and threes running back. That's what they got and that'll have to be addressed this offseason. But here's the deal. Oh it's okay. Because when watson plays like a problem as watson's not going to have that type of game every game he just can't and their defense is proven in nine games ten games. They've done at once one time. They did it against a good team. They did against the when. I say good team a better team right and i'll take it. I like it. I'm not i don't have delusions of grandeur to think that this is all the sudden a great team but what happens is you can springboard. Maybe the defense starts to say see what happens when you get aligned right and you don't give up you. Make some tackles in the open field. It's amazing did not break amazing. Things can happen like that and then they play. Detroit team is not very good. They go to detroit on thanksgiving in a short week. Thought detroit's guaranteed a loose to a few weeks ago and detroit was twenty smoke. hey suck and they But here's what happens coming off that they're going to be embarrassed him. It's thanksgiving day. You know they'll show. Matt stafford likes to get that old tur- duck in for the old john madden. He'll up good games on thanksgiving day. I think the sean is going to eat this week. I would think he probably would. The key here is and other than the vikings speaking of a poor loss it on a roll three or four in a row. And let the cowboys waltz into your building on a day. Where kirk cousins barely anything. Yeah and normally you know we blame it on cover. That's not now cousins. Like he's got to elevate his team but this is them he was always something. Yeah well duty three cents. I don't think it to the other team. I mean like i said i had to go on a show in minnesota. Tv show last night. I said listen. There's always something missing. It's the five thousand piece puzzle. Where at the end of it. There's four pieces of the puzzle but whatever it is. i said. He can't blame this on cousins. I said but for me. Cousins is a type of guy who like i said. He's gonna put up big numbers but he'll make you but it wasn't on him yesterday. The problem is it's the coach in the quarterback. We always go to them first yet. Because they don't will their team to victory but when you don't stop look you look at the numbers you say. Lose game yeah that. That's what you say if someone who looked at the numbers the patriots. Yesterday you go again of quarterbacks for three sixty five right they ran for me. It's not a ton but they ran for eighty six. They over four hundred yards told totally tissue right and watching that game last night. I mean yesterday with the vikings like vikings are on a roll thinking. They're a playoff team. And then you allow team that has no business beating you and that's the problem you've got to birdie the par-five right. Yeah and that was a par five that they didn't well. The texans took care of their business yesterday and the patriots are looking at and saying that was the that was the par-five we screwed up right. Now we we had a chance to make against a toyota of and now we're sitting there and four six right and they're not making the playoffs now now so you got to look but this is a going into that game. The minnesota and i was going to say. Do you realize it like nine out of ten that the winning percentage for teams that have played on a short week or you know didn't practice the that had this winning games all the time. What's going to happen less per all the time. Yeah so that's what we need is is less training camp right but to look at what Down the texans and detroit in short week. I've always said not only handle failure but handle success. The worst thing that the texans could do is get cozy because they beat new england and then staff. Now i got news for you. Go ahead if he sets his feet and throwing it. Oh he's gonna put through three sixty five he's going to throw for four hundred and if that's because they can't run the ball. He is a much better thrower. Than than didn't lamar jackson. Yeah then cam newton then the only two guys. They've run into this year. That are better pure. Passers this on their schedule. So far then rogers and oh they played three right so the ten games they start to look at. It played a lot of good quarterbacks ben rogers and mahomes this guy can throw it and when it comes to just point eight to point b. He'll get it. There's good their running back situation. Yeah is he going to suddenly be off. The concussion protocol thursday. I don't get on the protocols like saturday. yeah. I don't think it's that would be some something to ask. And then you say well how much how much can give even if he did play right. He's running back. Peterson said is right. So you better pressure stafford. Because he's capable hanging four hundred on you and then win and so in short week can a team that lose. It was embarrassed yesterday. Detroit find a way to compete in a team that played their best football game. Find a way to get over the success quickly and go back because al gotta go back to work today. They may take a little time off today but in a short week. Monday becomes wednesday's practice. Tuesday which is a normal day off becomes thursdays practice and then wednesday becomes combination walk through friday's practice. So you have to you. Don't get that we're not gonna do anything. It's a combination of both order to get it in film today. Watch the tape take carry a businessman and he got three two days in one. When i say days we're not taking anybody around ground this late in the season you know trying to get fresh legs but you still have to get it in not only thursday football. It's thursday and eleven thirty in the morning early morning games detroit's always the first one ask. I can't imagine the out it. No and bodies that are beat up you just read from all those taxes store he gotta find a way to get it and they'll be in the tub all morning today to get themselves revitalized for another game right sports. Talk seven hundred. Texans win most complete game of the year and not close matter of fact so it was good good to watch. It's always nice to come in on a monday when they win. Basketball has been going haywire with free agent signings. It's actually going forward. It looks like it apparently got themselves a pretty good center who could step out and pound the three two and and so they if this is the case then we're going to keep the two stars intact. It apparently seems so far so far yet. You can keep your houses from being on the market. James harden russell westbrook apparently sure feels that way now. Does it sports talk seven. Ninety sean salisbury. Show continued much discussed today of the three starting rookie. Quarterback's herbert was really really. Pj walking good job yesterday too. So let's give him some credit right. Roughnecks legend hip herbert continues to exceed. Everybody's thought process may very well win their offense rookie of the year. Now because the injury borough and then we saw joe burrow get hurt and hopefully you know they'll make a full recovery and to gets benched nine and own. I love about brian. flores yes listen. He got the starting job. He was struggling. Yesterday we've seen him get better every week. Took a step back yesterday. He realized their teams in the playoff hunt. Got to play somebody else to fits. His job is to be a backup sometime. Starting pitcher and got it and what it will anybody that will now to is going to lose confidence. Well then he should then. You shouldn't have even drafted him. Anybody that says that is just stupid. And i'm so tired of yeah. You can't do that. What if you ruined his confidence or no. You shouldn't have played him in the first place. now look he gets so. So what gets bench. Everything is an alabama where you're beating people by sixty every single week to is going to be a hell of a player. He made the right move to start him. They won three in a row he struggled. He goes to the backup quarterback and guess who starts next week to a big deal to it. Which i'm not saying he is. I'm talking about the perception at times. Well what if you ruin your franchise quarterback then guess what one benching or one bad game. All the sudden gonna make if he goes into the tank over that or some some hot take analyst or somebody out there right mccollum. Well the you just can't hurt his feelings. Then you're the everybody gets a trophy hot. Take a writer and you're stupid. Then you have zero clue. Now if to goes on and isn't any good for years from now it ain't going to be because of this and if it is his benching then the miami dolphins made a huge mistake in drafting him. That's not going to be. The case and brian floors knows that about act. I think floor. Send a message yesterday. You're the starter but you're not above criticism. Don't care yeah. We got to win a football game. The team's bigger than worrying about your feelings. And i think to understands that he'll go back to work so to struggle. Yesterday we saw some great performances by people yesterday like our own quarterback here and the defensive performance and we saw The baltimore ravens. Continue to struggle. Lamar jackson's passing game continues to take. Are we worried about his his his psyche. I don't think you should. But i'll tell you what they're in third place now and they're scrambling to hang into a playoff to play the steelers and this week in the play someone else. I believe another elite team. That is if they lose these two games that right at around five hundred in mant nets. They lost to make very walsh yesterday. The tennessee in indianapolis in this division are suddenly starting to elevate. Obviously so the of hey we can. We can hang around and do some well. Those teams are now seven and and guts by indianapolis. I mean it was a ballsy win. Really was and rivers is good indoors at home and when things are cleaned played good football and they beat a really good team some the best in the nfc right and then you talked about the talk about gut check. Win is tennessee. Titans man like you said. I mean yeah running it and henry stepping up as he does in the second half of the season second half games tannehill making up throws a huge huge win by them yesterday so you start to look around and go up and down sale man. We've got some fun stuff to look forward to pat. Mahomes is probably underpaid raider. And when you watch often i try to watch every pasha mahomes hand. Because they're just you learn something. It's like we're watching. I know brady's still like his longtime like this is like watching. It was like watching michael jordan. Well it feels like like he just does things that no human should be able to mahomes will approach. His decision making like brady did throughout his career by accuracy. Throwing the ball away. No one pre snap reads all those things and continues to elevate mentally and understand with this play calling and with his weapons and the one thing brady never had that mom's has backtracked. Mahomes skill set is something brady releasing brady had to do everything mechanically perfect to be where he is and he did for nine super bowl appearances. Mahomes doesn't have to do everything. Mechanically perfect any still good. He's he's he's phenomenal. And i'll tell you what cars good player. The raiders are a better team than people thought. They'd be all year the raiders. The raiders are shown toughness that they've lacked the last few years. And i liked that. So there's a lot to like in the nfl so we're going to. We are in for one hell of a last six game run but here romeo cornell talked and let's let's first off about Let's see about the run game. I saw one in here about addressing the run by let me just find it First before we do that. Let's go to twenty three on what he told his team in the locker room postgame. Here's romeo cornell. After the game with the team one Give a shout out to john weeks because what he accomplished by playing the today Gave shot him. And then i told them that we got a short week and better get into coal tub so that you can regenerate and then get ready to To work a couple of days and then go travel and play on thursday and we need a win on thursday. Yeah as as i mentioned. You gotta get in that tub immediately and rejuvenate your body weeks congrats. John kass andre johnson for the most games played in texans franchise history no and you can't diminish that it's a lot of football played at one position Oh the number twenty with the run defense. What was different about the run defense today. Here's romeo cornell. Well you know. I tell you guys. All the time. The consistency consistency of technique and guys during their job and doing their job. First and then try to help out and a lot of times. It comes to toughness than leverage Plan against double teams and not guessing and so. We did that today against a good running team a team. You know who who's top of the league. As far as iran goes and then we were able to slow that down then they started to throw the ball. And you know they haven't been throwing as well overall because they've been running the ball and so now you kinda put him out of their element a little bit particularly you got. Jj coming off the edge being disruptive way he was getting a quarterback spot and so that helped us a lot today the first time in an end he's right. They were one of the better. All around the crazy thing is coming in this. You thought man. They're going to have a field day running it and they knew that they had to stop the run. They did brought extra guys down and as roma said earlier in the week. That's how you do it and limited cam newton's ability to run and they stop the run game and the part of the first time in six years russmann opened. Listen i one thing. People here argue with me about it. I think it's absurd. That the astros in the end. The texans don't open the roof more. It's a sixty five. Seventy five eighty degree day opened a frigging roof. The baseball one doesn't bug me in the middle of summer and they do open it when it's nice right now it's seventy five degrees in the middle so i know wind. I've been in the. I've been in in. Our g wants the year that the hurricane ike hit and they could not close the roof the rest of the season and it was hot when it's hot and that roofs known open or that is roof is open. It's miserable nobility because it does not. There's no circulation of air anything with hundred nice. Open the damn open. the roof. Baseball was made to play outdoors and so was football right. Yeah it's not. Baseball was made to play outdoors and so was football jordan. Akins twenty nine about he and the players they want. The roof mope and more often than one where it is good to get some fresh air and You know You know we had a good reason. There wasn't too hot and it wasn't too cold. So i i enjoyed it and i'm pretty sure everyone is well. Yeah i enjoyed watching. It was nice to see sun. Hell they do. They lose when they're losing team is when they opened the roof. When they're winning team that'd be stakes closed. You find that rabbit's foot any way you can right if it works. Let's go now. They're going into a building. It's going to be closed thanksgiving and it be a little bit. It's good thanks to be a little bit. A little bit chillier in detroit. Yeah this thursday than it would be. Here we'll come back and discuss. We'll have the big one in our poll question next. It's a monday. Great performance by watson running game must get better short. We gotta get healthy defense. Step their game up sa- first time in ten weeks. The defense looked like a really good defense for the first time yet. They still gave up almost four hundred yards passing but they got it done and i don't care how many yards you give up as long as you keep him out of the end zone less than we get in it. Sports talk seven hundred. Big one next your back. This is the sean salisbury. Show back at it question. One plant one question free. This is the big one was being question of the day on. The sean sells very show. Sports talk seven ninety four near debating over as we have. What's the most What's the word. I'm looking for influential. Poll question today influential. Yes it was going to be influential with your poll. We could do. Who's going to be the offensive rookie of the year in the nfl. Prominent go pearl now. Put his name there now. Harbor herbert edwards layers. Pretty good two touchdowns last claypool score ten touchdowns in ten games. Yeah that's pretty good. Her wasn't the favourite. Maybe it was probably herbert last couple of weeks it has been. He's been throwing for one yards. So do we. I mean do we say left burrow out because of injury in the thing. Yeah all right. Let's do that then. Who's the offensive rookie of the year and in that saying picture and the question Josh we put in parentheses borough left out due to injury because he's not keep you can't miss six games and went off ain't gonna happen so herbert edwards helaire klay pool or other or am. I missing somebody. That's all. jeffersons played well to in minnesota is that right is there any other. Can't put two in there after only starting three games. Four games now got benched I think we should put jefferson in their from minnesota. Those are the four. How about herbert's numbers now. Twenty six ninety nine passing twenty two touch chances six. Pick sixty eight percent right now. It was a hundred yards per game. The majority of the world missed on him. I completely majority not missy. Said he wasn't going to be a good player. Nobody i i think it was gonna be. This obviously sure sell. Didn't think he was going to be this. This fast yeah. Many people didn't think he'd get to the field this year for the most part. They thought the charges are going to be an average of five hundred type team with with Tyrod taylor's the quarterback and now bingo here. we are and herbert. He may run away with it. And which is frightening. Because jefferson's numbers are like randy moss. Love yes they are and klay pool. Rookies don't score ten touchdowns. Ten straight weeks porsche. In you know what it is touch that done after touchdowns and then herbert is grab the job when he and how he got remember he wasn't supposed to start. And then the injury to tyrod taylor from a doctor is how he got on the field. And t taylor has not seen the job sense crazy stuff and i'll tell you dog tayshiaaa was that i saw a couple of people start to play the race card as to why taste hill got the start. Would you guys stop it but said that. That's that is unfair to take them hill. Unfair to james winston and lazy a lazy narrative. I saw. well i a couple of people. They're not they didn't want to get into it but thought that the and i yes i did see it. Just you know like a fan or something and you'll you'll read those right. Yeah it's it's lazy. K it is. Let me tell you something. He is taste some. He'll play good football. Yesterday i thought touchdown pass. Don't pick but he played efficient. Yeah he played. Football died last week. We gotta stop. I know that still exists. But i can assure you sean. Payton did not make the decision yesterday because he made the decision because tastes hill. He thought now some guys on the has reported either by rappaport or or schefter said that some guys felt that in the organization that james should have been the starter. That's why sean payton head coach. He made the decision. I think part of it's an audition to i actually think they wanna find out of tastes. Hill is a future quarterback kenny. While tell you what while were game plan changed a bit. They didn't call as many designed runs. As i thought they might at least early in the game the first half. I don't think he had one or maybe just watch. I was like man. They're they're doing. They're actually dropping him back and let them make some decisions and they didn't and perfect game plan because they didn't have to throw it forty times for him now maybe at some point time they'd like to just to see what it looks like but wherever that comes from let's not go there please. That has nothing to do with it. John pains going to run the best guy. Out there and jameis winston's a better passer tastes them hill protected the football which i think that new orleans is probably a little bit nervous of as you. Try to stave off tampa. Bay's got a huge game tonight against the rams in tampa right. So and i'm gonna just do the suggestion. We got to guard against the every decision. That's made by a coach or something and every decision people making life doesn't always Whether are some stupid decisions out there by people making decisions because they have hated him. I don't think this decision by any stretch of the imagination was made because of the color of a quarterback skin hanging him and asked money and put. Thank you pretty simple right. Yeah i mean they may be also. We don't go to practice. We don't know that one of them looks better than the other and practice. Have we let. Let's go ahead and throw here good monday. I was gonna say you bet say shade shade there. You go tastes bill right up there you go. He had some good place he obviously had a couple of throws that were lucky to not get picked off but they today also happens in every we've seen we we hear steve pows all when he comes on. And saying you know mahomes had six or seven balls. It hit somebody else's hands and didn't get picked all of us go through it. And then the other side is you'll throw a ball and should have been picked the or that caught and it was dropped or gets tipped guys hands in is pick so happens both ways but and it wasn't a rampant thing but i i saw a couple of hints towards all the only reason tastes and it maybe to somebody tongue in cheek saying if it's like come on man let let's not go there just like if you to made the decision to go jameis. Winston doesn't meets white boys okay. It's just a man. I can't play. I can't taste milley's white quarterback now we actually have because they believe in. Yeah sean payton only talked about for bolt on multiple occasions that he thinks the future quarter. Isn't it great that we have you know like tongan quarterbacks. We have african american quarterbacks. We have white quarterbacks. The great thing about is their quarterbacks who just happened to be of different races religions. And it's okay. Where i i would like to think that we're past that well i'm not talking about all routes that i'm telling you i think i still have a hard time leaving the making that decision right. How many white quarterbacks are they're starting today he's got to be closer to half the league. I mean it's the numbers. come down. yeah you know what. They're playing their best players. Which you're supposed to okay. And i like it was like i said it's not like it was some national strike a couple hints of it and i like come on man. They'll do that to sean. Payton don't do that to jameis winston. Don't do that to to taste. The mill is winston literally was turnover machine last year right. So you're you're allowed to make decisions based on what you think is a is a guy so it just it was a little bit baffling to me. But it wasn't that big a deal. But then i saw people comment on it and you know that some were bothered by it some. It's come on man and it wasn't even out loud suggestion. It was kind of a read through to read through the comments suggestion right. Like oh you kind of know where i'm going with this and i saw those and nobody that anybody know but just i like come on man is you scroll through it on some sort of social media here whispers the sex stop it and they won so they'll take it any way they can get it and maybe take. Some hill is a quarterback. Not janus winston. Maybe gets another opportunity to throw the ball if tastes meal comes out and they look like asking their losing a game they. Why wouldn't you because he can say now. He's a better thrower. There's no question about it. So the poll question is up at sports seven twitter. It's who's the offensive rookie of the year. And the reason we left joe burrow. We'd put him in. Had he got through game yesterday but the knee injury looks if he's going to miss the rest of the season supposedly so it sounds like it's right. He's done edwards helaire jefferson claypool and herbert. Make your choice. And i'm gonna tell you i don't know if you chose klay it'd be hard to argue with you. I mean they're ten. Oh he's caught ten touchdowns and it pretty good but if he chose herbert cornerback on a team. It's not gonna make the playoffs or the wide receiver on a team. That's the best team in order to benefit from people believing that he was doing. Oh there's like you say. I didn't i mean he's basically completing seventy percent of his passes for three hundred yards a game and you know what's crazy. I remember we said on this show. I think he's going to end up being better. Nfl player in college players. Kind of suits and go back and look at his jill if you look at his accuracy in college i'll guarantee he was close to seventy percent last year. It's yeah it was like seventy three percent during the season. I'll bet you is between sixty eight and seventy percents guy and you don't ever believe in the quiet guy he doesn't yeah he's not a self promoter. Sixty six percent last year and it was weird because the year before he was over seventy one. He was fifty nine point four. Oh he was okay before that he was sixty seven. Okay because at one point last. John deere pac twelve radio show each week and there was a time like six seven games into the season. Herbert was up around. Seventy two n you know that that fluctuate sixty six. You can win. But he's actually i like. I said he's a better pro than he was a college player and he was pretty good college. He's touchdowns in the nfl rookie season than he ever did organization. Yeah and that's the oregon offense that says it out. Let's go good for him if he can hover in that sixty five sixty six percent range. You'd be successful quarterback seventy sitting around. Yeah you're going to be off. Its rookie of the year. Sports talk seven ninety. Let's listen john paul's berry holes. Sean salisbury sports eddie. Your home baseball sports talk. Seven hundred. Ninety watson watt never get to fifty six. it was the. Here's jj watt. Sometimes when he gets maybe maybe he's frustrated by the question maybe just at that point in his career where he ain't gonna give a lot but On his own performance fifty six years with. Jj watt said gonna win. you know. that's that's looking for us. you're gone for so let's Okay it's good and he's he's obviously got high standards for himself as he should sixty two also on How exciting good. It feels to see both sides of the ball be productive. Yeah i think it speaks a little bit to the to. The last question was just acts. Like i said You start the game early. Obviously the first drive of the game wasn't we want to give touchdown but at the offense comes out puts points on the board We end up getting lead and then we can play the game that we wanna play defensive stopping the run putting them in tough situations that they don't wanna be in offense continues to score points and then you're playing from a position that's Much better than obviously for plan from behind other teams just trying to run the ball And you're trying to catch up so When you get yourself in a good position it's a lot easier and a lot more fun to play from that way so hopefully we can do that more as we had out to close the season so. Jj is excited and they got closer. They got detroit followed by india. Andy and that will be and they got to within the. Don't they have two games left. They still got one with Tennessee cincinnati doubt boroughs. Win for sure. Yeah at detroit. This next week. Home for india at the bears. Which i don't know about i i really don't know with that defense. Should do well against you but right got the defensive. They can keep watson down. The question is who's better nick. Foles and their offense or the texans defense net complex it comes down to. It comes down to the bigger weakness because the strength is the passing offense for the texans against a really good bears defense so if they offset each other when it comes down to can nick full which nick foles shows up. The nick foles during the regular season this year. Anytime or when a games on the line and it's like single elimination if he's big right then and then they win if he's not then well within we. It's a seven to six game. Yeah chicago right in chicago. And then they go to the colts in the last two or at home. Bingles in titans. This is laurie and six three and three the last six us just give to let shit for sure and that would get him to what six hundred ten six ten seven to nine seems about right for this even if they get to eight and eight which would be one more time right. Which would you day. That'd be a pretty good accomplishment right in the playoffs but but but it'd be at this point. There's no reason to do anything but win. Because you don't want to help miami so when right. Yeah i mean not that. Miami's in your thirties. Conference of course. Not because the higher the pick the more. It looks like you guys sucked during the year and you'd like them to pick tenth instead of with their pick or something as opposed to or twelfth. Then you would pick and third superstar four five at eleven or twelve. Where a guy who's an instant impact guy comes in the top five. Sometimes that guys later but then again we look around. There's been a whole lot. Instant impact guys are have been this year edwards helaire one of them into the first round. Right he'll mock that pick clay pool. What why a second round pick. I wonder if he maybe third. Yeah wasn't even a first round pick. You think that guy's any good. I mean he. He started out at notre dame is kind of tight end and fly around forty ninth pretty good player man. Yeah so you look around the league these guys longer. Wait for rookies. Damn pacman lycee. Do it now or forever. Hold your peace right. I mean because of how the offense is are now you can do little packages thou get used their strengths and then they can just exploited until someone figures how to stop it out or just another way to attack it. Yeah and criticisms a great motivator guys. I mean the truth is you can't just hate the world where they criticize you when you and you can't blame people for criticising you when you're a two and seventeen to and sixteen two and seven what they two and seven threes. Now they're talking about going into yesterday seven. You can't be mad at people for criticizing because quite frankly you've earned it and just like when you're going good if you're the pittsburgh steelers right now. The last thing you want to do is buy into everybody. You know basically bounty and telling you how great you are your ten and fine and don't start talking. Sixteen in out of the pittsburgh steelers when he gets the thirteen or fourteen and then then you can discuss it now. People in the media. We're all going to start talking. Can they go. I guarantee you this week on hot. Take show it's going to be asked. I'll bet you a million bucks on tv if they get to the sixteen while. I'll bet you question gets asked but you gotta be able to deal with criticism and compliments equally as quick and quite frankly get over them both equally as well. Now you got two choices when you're criticized go fix it. Use it as motivation. And kick ass or pout about it. Be bitter and everybody that criticizes you yet. When you're done playing your career you want to go be a media person to that. You have to criticize so understand. I always loved that when when athletes were pissed at you forget criticizing them. You drought four balls in a game and we're supposed to say you're a great player today. No you're a great player. who sucked. Today it's okay yet when those same guys were pissed you criticize them. Want to get a a tv job right. So you know deal with both. And i love the fact that certain guys just go about their business and deal with both. Because you've got to now. It's no fun when all rather be complemented the criticize but how you utilize it. We've seen a guy in new england who is now tampa number twelve utilized criticism. Pretty well in his favor. The great ones all do. Jj watch been able to do that. We'll just in read talked about you. Know number forty four on this josh on on the list here on how criticize criticism motivated him the emotional player I feel my emotions went up on a few So no i took it as a challenge crystal and no today stepped up to it and it continues as fuel for the future man. Okay great and that. And that that part i like who i mean in the way it's supposed to be. Yeah and you know what if that's what fuels. We're all looking for something whether it's a cup of coffee red bull or somebody to piss you off. Great as i've always said this as long as the criticism that's fueling you doesn't take. It's like a guy who knows he can get into your head on the field and he spent so much time talking to you and your so bought your so. It's shannon sharpe was great at that as a player. I'm talking about great at it. Going to shannon sharpe would delve deep into livelihoods are life talkative. Across the line of scrimmage to gets you thinking. I'm so pissed at this dude that you focus on your job and it's true. Some guys are just grant shannon was beauty and a hell of a player too but great at it as well. That's exactly right. Who gets into your head enough that you're pissed so mad at draymond green that you forget you gotta cover somebody and you gotta go score and you go play basketball. It happens and then there's the guy who says all right man and laughs and goes plays uses motivation applies. It goes it kicks ass and you just can't let criticism or compliments get you. It's like that guy who celebrates endlessly after a touchdown and forgets those three and a half quarters. How many times we've seen at first team scores. And then they don't do anything the rest of a game and they beat because after that first drive we see it all the time all the time they get a little too comfortable. It set team. Who can kind of play on edge pissed every week. Even when you're winning like pittsburgh they seem to find a different dude. Every week to win games for them. Have you noticed it too. What one week. It's it's been the next week. It's james conner. Then all of a sudden it's it's it's pre and then it's it's the playgirl claim auckland juju smith schuster right. It's always somebody doing something. So you don't have this thing that the burden of and in green bay and certainly seattle or if that guy doesn't play great if ben doesn't play great next week they can still win. Yeah you know what i'm saying. Not playing great. Like look mayfield. Style was mayfield. Twelve twenty two or some twelve yesterday. Throwing it didn't have to throw much. They ran the ball. Do what they do. Played really good. If ben goes twelve twenty four on a consistent th they can still win then all of a sudden bengals thirty four and we still haven't seen that of forty game. We're bent those for four sixty five touchdowns right. But i can tell you this. You know. even though he's been kind of quiet he's up nearly twenty five touchdowns trey at twenty three twenty four throws for touchdowns right now which means by the end of the season. He's going to have thirty plus just another quiet. Big time season for ten teams impressive. And i think they like the way they're winning so you'll take on yesterday. You take it big and then you feed off. And i know you're going to hear one game at a time these next six games. You've got to be you've got to win half and get up to six wins when go go five in one and get it to five hundred. You'll start to look at people. They'll be a little of excitement going into next year. And it's been said that obviously with jack easterby who's going to oversee things but not be the gm and pr push about making sure that we know is not gonna be jackie eastern and it's also the pr push was said yesterday or at least i think lock Jason lockenfora said that that they said romeo cornell's not going to be. I think looking for that said romeo cranial will not be considered for the head. Coaching job in two thousand and twenty one so they hurt everybody lose their mind shift. Yeah like oh we should use our brains and not try to hide behind covid. Yep and apparently they're not going to good go fired into the head coach. You're allowed to do that right sports. Talk seven hundred hour number. Two rockets got a new center. It appears all the panic. That may james russ may still be here unless something crazy. Strapping can't arts. And what a week. By the way college hoops starts this week. I think tomorrow. Believe it. Which i love but i can't believe it feels like it came out knowing it's like were they even. I didn't even think are they practicing all the covert up and down. I don't even know if what's going on or how they're getting ready but god bless him. I love college. Hoops sportstalk seven ninety. Sean sows ratio. Our number two next will stick it out this hour. We'll have much to discuss. A lot of football going on and basketball is well golf club of houston golf club. Houston dot com man with a golf course man. Do i not love after a gusta you always elect. It's the kinda hangs with you and don't you wanna play. Course the pros play. you sure. Can't golf club. Houston out there and the the customer service through the roof when you when you drive in there. You're like okay. Look at the layout look at the way they not only treat the golf course but the people there the members of your guest and there are memberships available. Walk on in there from the pro shop to to the grill everywhere and safety protocols intact obviously as always but when you hit that golf course. It's in prime shape. You can play where the pros play.

Memberships are awesome out there and the setup. You can play where the pros play golf club. Houston dot com golf club. A houston dot com. Bill longtime friend. sean salisbury. This is the sean salisbury. Show on so you. Think the Welcoming our number two mc josse and. I'm here as we head into our thanksgiving week. Hopefully it's a good one. I'm hungry already for you guys yet. Eat them up and enjoy each other's company and have a blast What do you think about The rockets now. I think it's interesting. That's for sure after that. Adding of christian would and Sneaky sneaky good player man. I i don't think people know much about him because he hasn't played a lot in the nba but he's a guy that six hundred sixteen journeyman finally settled his way through the last season. And after the why might lose my mind in detroit with Mr physicality there the german. Yeah yeah when he was going right the cleared the way this kid he you know he's he can shoot. Hey can pop out and hit the three. He's good inside chat thirty eight. That's exactly right at six ten. So they've got a big athletic and apparently he and james harden have been working out together. This offseason there you go. And now he's all you need about. Who's got power in the in the organization as well get that. They're that they're also tried to appease james harden to make sure he knows that. Hey we're committed the you we're doing. What point does he sign. The hundred three million dollar extension. I don't know if he does. I only matters right now because he knows it's common. He was on the rockets summer league team coming out of a after and then i'm guessing they song like. Hey that could be a good fit with james. And then they didn't really want to give roster spot 'cause they're on the next thing you know he becomes the perfect fit nixon james. He's actually finally elevated his play. It's almost like a light switch. Went on his game and can shoot. And i got said. It's one of those guys who can do a little bit of both. He can play inside. He rebounds well then he averaged it the second half of the season that year and nine rebounds eight and rebounds a game so pretty he can do bowl last year average thirteen and six. Okay there you go. So he's he's relevant. Let's put it that way. It's not just a warm body. He's a guy who can and they always want today. I mean nowadays biggs got to be able to pop out and hit the three right. Yeah i see where. Marcus all ended up in the league so right. It's also added sterling brown the weekend from the bucks so i think that there moves signal that hey were both guys are here. We're holding onto both these guys. Were playing with these guys. Ready to go. Yeah i would. I would think that's also rivers by the way is gone officials. Everybody was wondering about Rivers is going to the knicks for three years ten million which made no sense to me but good luck three years for ten it will. You can't go to a restaurant. Their kids can't go to school. You can't walk down the street. i don't. I don't know what you can do now. He ain't gonna win either. May even go across his head over to brooklyn you make winston games but unfortunately with the knicks. You may not be very good not probably not not very good. What are they going to be. Good again never cashed fine with it. I mean there are three years for ten million. That's what he signed time for their off-season been will guys like that. That are fine players. Oh hell no l. Frigging jesus no early in the week for that golo. It isn't it could call. You realize i'm i got. I got a. I got to come clean about some here. Emptied the bucket here real quick. I'm beside from find sean murdered. Somebody don't ever up to two nice guy to do that. Although sometimes we thought about choke and people outright. I i i'm dick. Did this right now to hallmark. Christmas movie Good god yeah. What's wrong with you. I watched like three of them a day right now. I'm not gonna lie to you. We watch a lot of them in our house. I don't want to watch. Them is the worst acting ever. I know but it's also what drives me nuts. The most is the is like the production the scenes they film these things somewhere. Like an and georgia clearly in the middle of the summer and there's grass word. There's this fake. And i'm like green. Grass and snow drives me nuts. How it works by a river trees paths leaves in them. No they don't listen. I don't ruin my dope buzzkill. Did i say about every time she puts on one of these movies and now she's gotten to the point where she heckles to she. She'll say look at all that fix knowing that green grass. Alan thicke is like the dad of four different movies. He's the data four different interests. Same actors like a fifteen movie deal and they just movies. Yeah i just i. It's it's awful only. I taped one yesterday. That's dvr to watch. I honestly well. I with flip. You watched crazy. Rich asians as a movie not a. That's a big screen movie. Not us so. I get why you'd watch that i saw at once. It was fine but you thought once a day for seven straight days. We don't have cable or court cutters so we watch it through the fires right with my aunts cable subscription but recently she cheat. Oh yeah okay. she she downloaded the app on there. You can't use a cable subscription then suddenly. I look at my my my my emails. My emails from my bank has been used online. Or whatever and i got discharged ramazani for like eight bucks or something. What the hell's ape. I didn't spend it buy anything on amazon yesterday. I go on there. She bought hallmark movies. Now yeah we don't need this too. I love it. So it's not like me. But the cheese factor. So he'll say the factor factors so huge. But it's like when it is snowing in the grass is green leaves toss. It drives me nuts. Savannah georgia some small town. There's no doubt grill. Frigging all that and say okay yeah. Do you watch hallmark. Christmas movies and is christmas music playing your house. It isn't mine. Oh we've been you hark the herald angels sing when we turned on like thirty alexes across the country. Yeah exactly when we had siri my bad. We've alexa driving around looking at houses and everything we've been listening to our time like we've put some miles on the car christmas on sirius. Oh it's been nothing but christmas. Oh yeah and. I'm like good god this but you know what have i. Don't put my trip to all right after thanksgiving deflect the friday after but i already started with the christmas cuts i think. Christmas cuts fit thanksgiving. Though that's what. I think you've been duped by corporate society. Yeah yeah putting out christmas crap way. Not by christmas stuff. But i christmas music before thanksgiving. I'm in and but i don't put the tree up till add the day after thanksgiving weekend to christmas movies. I truly enjoy our all. Watch out. I don't think you chase nationally foods christmas vacation and elf outside of that. I don't think i would want to watch a horror movie or anything like elvis. Her favorite we've watched alpha. I'm not kidding already. Four times the last time a little burn out the reason with utah about with feral de realize than the other one james could they to get another one but apparently feral in peril and fabric john. Fabric can't get they. Don't get along. Which which sucks. Because we're waiting for a second one. I'll tell you another when you have to watch bad. Santa abedin. I've seen bashing against iran efforts in both of them are frigging amazing and i love him. It's a classic but it's more of an adult santa thing but you know we're all adults here so let's roll wasn't very good though. Yeah but at least. I still like the billy bob thornton. I think he plays a funny ass. Santa man he's classic. So i gotta come clean. Who watches hallmark christmas movies. I feel there's a few people out there cheese so cheese mode though against it's credible but i like it like the hair she lost through them and seeing it seeing it. Yeah i seen it seen this when we're watching this and then it's on 'em just gonna fall in love with the person who was not very nice early becomes nice late or they'll fall in love not to say that they'll be apart then find their way back to each other. Yeah it's the same story line just a different rap rap. Yeah i love the rapper dude. Sports talk seven ninety. It's a hallmark christmas here.

It's post thanksgiving next. Yep that's next week sports. Talk seven ninety. We'll take it out next fastball. i'm weissmuller's junior of houston astros. You're listening to sean salisbury. On sports talk seven nine lance mccullers. How about the performance. Your home for houston astros baseball. Sean hearing out there now. That sells stakeout. Out on the sean cells ratio. All right guys. I'm working on from a friend. You know the guy who saved the puppy from the alligator's mouth guard his mouth. Hopefully i'm on the right path. I'm trying to get him on. Say if we can an cool bastard kept a cigar in his mouth the whole time. Yeah that was a ball. Play epic move him legendary. So if i if. I'm on the right path. Maybe we'll get him on when will Tease it and guess who's going to be the one that has to call and find out if it's if we're on the right path with him. You josh show p prepared good lawyers either gonna be you know. Hey man i still got by cigar make it shoot out or hopefully it'll work out but why would never call unless we were cleared to call but it that way i don't i don't prank people at seven thirty in the morning although it's kind of fun at times but you don't wanna be okeydoke. Didn't return right. So maybe maybe we should try. It's very i'm fine. Yeah for four hours. You think about that. We've been awake for four hours. Did yeah i got up this morning at four zero eight three thirty three thirty five three forty for me. I'm trying to trying to get myself into like a good role of getting the foreclosure again. Like slip into like four thirty and Yeah the key is the second. If you've got an alarm that goes off. I'm to the point now. Where i'm waking up without alarm pop up out of the sheets. You know that that that role over. Let me just get five. More minutes never worked done even my well. forget it. Let's stinking josh. Why don't we start. Would you today but all right so we know that the eagles in carson wentz have not had a good and bring him up. I'm glad you did. It's it's not gonna funnier for them. In the question has been should carson wentz be benched will doug peterson answered that question yesterday in his press conference after the game the way the game was going in the elements and and we were just a really score from putting ourselves back into this football game. I did not consider that if you get to that spot whether you you don't start him or are you bench. I think you're you're sending the wrong message football team that the season's over and and That's a that's a bad message and you know we have to. We have to work through this times. You know when when when times get tough. It's sometimes that might be the easy thing to do. So should the eagles bench carson wentz in start. Jalen hurts now. Here's here. I do agree with doug peterson about. You're telling your football team that maybe you're qantas season yet. They're right right around. I personally half a game because of the right. And they're terrible there one there are place gals they've got to do is take care of business. They have game in front. They are the only team from that divisional playoff. They've been picking up because every team is in division is also three right right so they gotta win it right every team my here. Here's what i i still believe. Carson wentz is a good player. something mentally he made. he's making some throws that are just like baffling yet. He's still guy i agree. I understand what. Doug peterson saying that. They obviously some that. There's a reason why nobody else's playing there is a reason. Why one is. You do not want to lose everybody in philadelphia's a tough town on on athlete just is and while you say well. Every time is not that different that that certain positions on their sport they just are and they're there and it's okay. They're very critical. And and i understand but for wince in that position especially when people are saying nick foles should still be there instead of wind sets telling you something because you see how nick foles is playing in chicago. Chain very good. So i do understand. Doug peterson approach in the front office. And this is one hundred million quarterback this future we don't wanna even let it creep in but it's also kind of a little bit. I don't want to say a little bit disrespectful. But if you jalen hurts aren't you saying what do you mean. You're going to quit on the season i'm here. I'm a rookie. I know how to win. I played in big moments in alabama. So that part of it tells me that they don't think hurts. Play exactly because otherwise you'd think oh we'd maybe gives us a better chance to win. That's why you do. You take a look in miami like we said earlier. They were three and three when they went to it and they may have had some players. Say what are we doing. Then they get to six and three inside coup. Okay see we're doing and then in the middle of a game to the first thing. I thought i'm going back when i'm watching the ticket also on my computer and i'll watch much of the miami. I wasn't overly interested in the miami yesterday. But then i go back and i'm like no. I wanted to see her. I want to see the quarterback play. Doh misunderstand me but then you go back and forth and you're switching games on the on the computer inside. 'cause you gotta do is talk on. Pushy does not like you have to change chance at easy change on the computer and then i looked bench. I mean i thought i had thought to was hurt and it was no they just set him down for bad play and he was not playing well and so they didn't quit on the season by making decision going back and forth they're just trying to survive and get wins. Yeah so maybe the best thing for carson wentz if he continues to struggle to wake his ass up and it's not just him. They're not a good team but his job is to elevate so. I'll tell you the only thing. The risk factor is if you lose carson. If all of a sudden you go in there and three games in a row jalen hurts his quarterback ben carson wentz draft burri. That second round. I mean listen. If you were worried about why did you drop them in the second round. If you're worried about somebody's feelings or what. It looks like to your team. You drafted him. Because you think the guy's got a chance right. So i agree with that but i also don't think doug peterson's made some questionable decisions and play calling this year himself in a super bowl champion but he has there at a brutal shazier their schedule. They have the seahawks next monday night in the packers than the saints than the cardinals. They get a chance to be on for and then they won't win the division with a half a game law. Because you know what don't be surprised. Now if andy dalton stays healthy the cowboys appear to be the most gifted team in this thing with their win yet. Dalton played solid ezekiel. His first hundred yard rushing game like are they going to because they can't stop anybody they can't they then they'll they can't and dalvin rush for another one hundred yards so they had to answer your question while you're looking at schedule. I would think they've got much easier schedule. I would think over the next four game stretch if it goes like we think at some point time jalen hurts has got to get a snap. And they've got washington at baltimore at cincinnati home for the niners home for the eagles at the giants. The cowboys stationed go visit. Yeah they should go full four and two which will give them. What seven and nine and that'll pry win the division all right so what you got the mvp after what layer ten levino they lost yesterday. Aaron rodgers when mahomes the second right now and and with ten interceptions rogers and mahomes. If you wanna go by me both teams or winning. The colts beat him in a close and but rodgers played really good football again yesterday. It's one of those two russell wilson's interceptions of him. he's double digits. Yeah so it's one of those two and you know dalvin cook. If they had a better team is the non quarterback mvp. I think it's very top three right now. i'm voting. Would he be there guy. After mahomes in russell wilson would still get a few more votes but kyla murray's top five rothlisberger getting any discussion because of the way they're winning yet. You look at his numbers. They're passing yards. He's only fourteenth in the league. Twenty four touchdowns to five picks and he's completing sixty seven percent of his passes in his team's undefeated at the. That's what we said. It's the quietest twenty four touchdown passes or twenty three or twenty four. Twenty four twenty four touchdown passes and five pick season. You're talking about. I mean you talk about iffy. Averages two touchdown pass the game for the next six weeks. That's thirty six touchdowns on the season which is phenomenal year. And he's gonna let's say those ten picks thirty six and ten thirty six and eight thirty six nine on a team that's probably going to go minimum fourteen and two right. Thank so i if that's the case then he doesn't finish in the top five then. It'll be a shocking. But i don't know. I think he's the outlier right now. The win the votes go in he may get a few people are talking people. Don't even mention ben roethlisberger name. Mvp at all and they win and he put up numbers that quite frankly guys that were well. What's russ that right now. Twenty six or twenty eight and ten point. Got the thirty. That's right because he had a bunch. That's right so thirty and ten more touchdowns for three thousand yards passing. Brady could get to three thousand a night. He's two hundred and the deter sixty away. He should be really close if they went anyplace. Plays well tonight. He will get us to sixty right so three times. But and you know what i it. Just it's it's pretty odd how we pick and choose rothlisburger and most years would be conveyed. Be talking about him as an mvp. On tim team but nobody is. Nobody is but that's right with his game last week. Got to thirty four thirty and ten three to one. He still should be in the. Mvp talk gotta be sports. Talk seven hundred. Ninety classic chevy sugarland classic chevy highway six classic chevy sugarland dot com classic chevy highway six dot coms. Jeff and tiffany sebastian. This holiday season. You might want to jump on it now guys. The deals are through the roof. They just are. They have been all twenty twenty the every year every month. They're doing they're doing something to make you to intrigue you to bring you into continuing to be the best reason why they're ten years in a row. Gm dealer of the year because of volume customer service and the service department. Those are three of the main criteria that qualify you to be the jam dealer year and ten years in a row for jeff tiffany sebastian classic chevy sugarland and classic chevy highway six. We still call it new. Because it's fairly in its infancy but his kicking rear end and they're open on sunday so when you see the deals it's thanksgiving. I know it's been a rough year but the deals make it easier far easier if you not only to take delivery at home with the covert thing but if you want to go in safety protocols but the deals in the lease specials on on the silverados on the equinox on the traverse on the blazers guys are phenomenal. What a time of year to start thinking about that gift for you or your loved one. Think what you spend two hundred ninety nine dollars a month on and then come see me especially if you've got a vehicle decide guy to get out of it now is the time. Classic chevy sugarland dot com find new roads and they lied to classic chevy sugarland and classic chevy highway six which is open on sunday. Tell jeff and tiffany sebastian. I sent you. And he's got a lot to say about. Sean salisbury continues on seven hundred sports. Talk seven ninety guys. I gotta tell you. I think the protocols and college sports all are absurd i do. Teams cancelling dabo swinney was pissed at florida. State said and cancel for cova. They cancelled for some other reason. Maybe an aspen would be by everybody. I just i don't when i keep saying we're gonna. I'm not a doctor but are we. Are we wearing masks in college. Sports in an all over the country we all right more mass than ever before in our country correct. Why is it spreading much wide spreading more. I don't know you know why because you're going to get it until the vaccine. You just are. If you haven't got like i said not a matter of if not win i'll say it every day. Why are we cancelling football games. When two guys are not feeling well under the pro. Why why are we doing this. I don't have an answer for you. We entire. I don't have an answer for any of it period. Somebody out there's gonna call and say well because we don't want people to die. Well they're not going to the the the an eighteen year old perfectly healthy more than likely ninety nine point nine nine nine is not is going to be okay. I just don't understand and that's not insensitive. That shift fact. Everybody tells me to follow. The science tells us on and i do isn't part of science The recovery rate is well. I'm not. I'm not a doctor. I just don't understand. We had one guy wasn't they said one guy had florida state wasn't that it was clinton who was like an o linemen one and florida state. So they didn't. I mean state clemson florida state. Said they didn't feel safe. You do the dabbles. This has dabo swinney talking about florida state. I like i said. I'm i'm used to two guys are not feeling well we quarantine the sick and if we just i said protocol saying we should be incentive towards society but protocols if two or six keep them home if the other guys test negative let in that. We do every week in sports every week. Go to work. Every i i. I don't get it. I'm not a doctor. But i think we go overboard. Sometimes not overboard with an eighty five year old. Grandma should not be in the stance. Should you shouldn't my mom your should mean the stance but and most places they're not yet the oklahoma oklahoma state game kind of cool seeing pointed to be there are some actually should energy in the building down until oklahoma took the energy out for oklahoma state at least a norman but like i said i'm not a die. Just don't the protocol just makes no sense and it's not that i want people unhealthy. I've had it. I get it. What people healthy. But i just don't understand what one lineman who'd if he's going to stay home why that's why you don't feel safe yet. You feel safe tackling every other week. I don't get it. I just don't here's what davos sweeney said. And he was pissed at florida state. If the standard of play zero positive tests then we would have never had season was not canceled because of kobe. Kobe was just an excuse to cancel the game to me. Florida state administration forfeited the game. And if they wanna play clemson in my opinion they need to come to clemson or they need to pay for all expenses other than that. There's no reason for us to play. We were there. We were ready and we met the standard bingo. And i know that i think it was mike. Didn't norval say that a we'll try to play him in december. I guess what i'm with dabble protocol one guy if they if they've the acc protocol. Then what's your plan. So one guy we're gonna play. This guy stays home. He's not playing met. Meet the protocol. And you don't wanna play. We don't feel safe than why in the world. Did you guys opt in a team. Then the the thing is you. I'll tell you what florida state doesn't like. Is the full blown. Overwhelming asks open. They take every week florida. State's florida state's. Fiu right now. okay. I might be doing a disservice. Florida state's not good and the the protocol safety your program. Why are you playing so next week is going to be different. I would not play if i was clemson. I'll be damned if we're coming to your place in tallahassee in december and i'll be damned if we're paying their own expenses we were in town ready to play. Yeah just based off of that. they should. They should be requesting that. And we also you also if you're clemson should get a win. That should count as a win. Well i mean they're going to get one no matter what but let's say. They cancelled the game completely. Yeah they deserve a win for that one hundred percent. So that's the way. I if if that's the case they probably wanted they're probably anything just because that's the first game lawrence back and they need themselves role right. Yeah he needs to give you want some rhythm get back into the because we got hell. The college football playoff election committees coming down the pike here in about two and a half weeks early early december by though i think by mid by the mid december we've already they'll know december eighteen thousand nine hundred ninety slowly. Yeah i thought. I thought i saw reese david. Yeah sometime in the middle of december. So we're thanksgiving were a couple of weeks away a couple of weeks. So i'm with dabba though if we if if if if a guy missing a game or a positive test was going to prevent us from playing a game. We should not be playing college football if that's the protocol that's my point with the whole thing. I understand if seventy five guys on your team you can't feel roster but if one guy or two guys were three guys tested positive and everybody else has done what we were told to do. Do all the social distancing wear a mask and get yourself follow protocol and pass it. Ninety five guys on a football team in. Three guys aren't feeling well as ninety two are play the game. Yeah if we're having a season what the nfl. On sunday games. they have to test negative. But you know if they're positive tests guys just stay home and they play right and aren't the older guys more. I mean we look at the the the you look at the statistics. The science on health people at twenty two years of twenty years of age eighteen years of eight. They're recovering well. We don't know the long-term well you don't know the long term ramifications about anything. I'm sorry to tell not seventy five. I'm not. I'm not worried about your mom and twenty seventy five. I'm not worried about my sister in two thousand. I'm not sorry. I mean propre going to be dead by them. Today it's twenty. I got fifth fifty seven years. Sorry i ain't making any decisions fifty years now. I'm not worried about fifty. So i'm not worried about your mom's mom's sisters kids kids kids. Kids kids generation forty years four hundred years now. Because guess what. I'll be dead. Sheriff might not be here. Thank you so it's not. I'm not being mean. I'm not being mean or your kids. Grandkids who's grandkids. who's grandkids. i. I'd i'd love to be able to control all that but i don't. Yeah okay so. I am worried about it but i'm not worried that if ninety five pass and to don't for a college football team why we can't play college football game. If in fact you decided to have a college football season if it was one negative test everybody goes on. We can't play. We should never have been on the field because clemson alabama this week. There's going to be guys on campus or players and these players do run into other people at at a restaurant that there's going and you may run into somebody who's tested positive and you may not test positive. Great god bless you. I don't know why people and we kicked the numbers are up. The course they're up and they're gonna keep rising until we have a vaccine. Staying home on. Thanksgiving is not going to prevent somebody from coming and get sick and going go and having thanksgiving not gonna make sure somebody get sick may both intertwined who knows it. Just it's you want people healthy. There's no insensitivity gets compassion. We all want health. Nobody wants anybody to die. But if the protocol was if if one player tested positive that the everybody's gotta stay home. Should we have had a contract season. And why are we starting college basketball. Because that's the case because you know what's going to happen at one of these schools what somebody will get you or is already had it right. Yeah i just not listen if we were gonna. Can't sports cancel sports. But if you're protocol says oh we can have it. Why didn't florida state play. They were afraid that one player with everybody else testing negative. I mean it was now did not want to sit there. Look at the scoreboard. Saying you know. Like i said i get it i i just i. I could talk about this. No i couldn't because you know what it annoys me but listen if you don't have enough scholarship players to feel the team because i get it and you know what most of them matter of fact. How many. How do how many college players through this have been hospitalized throughout all I don't. I don't know what the statistic is. Let's hope none if there's some are that hope to get healthy and one hundred percent but it just it's one of those viruses that people are going to catch it and hopefully you do the right thing to get back healthy and everybody's fine but if we're going to have football you can't have florida state. Get the cancel on you because one clemson player tested negative and wasn't gonna play other than he's right well then we shouldn't have played college football and he is one hundred percent right and norwood nor does florida state get to have us come there on our dime in december. If i'm clemson no frigging way. Just send him a bill. And we'll be there us the same hotel and flaps you're paying for all our food every ounce a plane gas all of it or come to our building and that's fine. Yeah and we'll kick your ass clemson either way to take. Take your but your flip in any way you want it but it'll be on your time not on ours. Yeah i just the the protocol in and like i said i'm compassionate as it gets and i want everybody healthy but if you're going to roll this out there we're already starting basketball december twenty seconds so obviously people wanna get right and they wanna play. They wanna do everything. So one positive test doesn't mean shutting down a world keeping every kid out of school and not going and playing sports. it's absurd sportstalk. Seven ninety footing. The logic in illogical former. John phalsbourg continues to break down one seven. Nine hundred sportstalk seven ninety hour number two rolling along quickly. What was your favorite thing about the game. The thing that stuck out the most you. Maybe you're not used to seeing a sean was just he elevated that. We said you need to do this all game long. He made he got rid of the ball. Like the ball. You mentioned earlier. The through the back of the endzone was cooks. That was back there but it was not even anywhere near him really made me happy. Yeah me too. Those like he did all like it just seemed like nothing. Faith him at all and any notice. The urgency coming out of lot to there was a yeah. It was everything about it was bouma mobile. I mean that's the confidence of the report that he gets to have some. I guess influence in the coaching decision. Right and also. Yeah and i don't mind him checking with a guy that's okay it doesn't get all the in but it's okay to ask you. Hey what if in the past had it with the guy said man. I've got eight. Ten of my buddies have played throughout the course of the career with that guy and they don't speak highly of it. So i'm gonna i think that's probably a bad idea. And then that can do what they want with or he comes so highly regarded anybody who's ever played for him of that. I've talked to love the guy and say if you as a head coach you're going to go to another level bingo then then take that into consideration. Doesn't mean you have to do what he says. It's okay to take your best player. In his opinion into consideration i there was a sense of there comes a point in time in any sport or in life when you get dogged enough the you got. You're either going to sit there and continue to get kicked on ribcage. Or you're gonna forget the xs and os yesterday while the xs and os worked. Yes to me. It looked like there was more fight in the dog yesterday. Yeah nothing to do with the dog in the fight had the because i think yesterday they'd played well against anybody now. I don't know if they'd have beaten anybody but playing like that played well because they had played that way against a team that would score instead of because they are they gave up. Aren't good right. Four hundred plus yards. Good teams are going to score in the red zone and not matter of fact some teams may have three hundred eighty yards but score four as opposed to in and new england still kept it reasonable right. It was a good game. Had chances in the end but couldn't pull it out and all you care about that column in the win column. They get better but yesterday it seemed to me just watching them. They're almost seem to be a sense of. I've had enough of listen to people or of watching. Excuse me listen if you're really good at self evaluation and self correcting. You don't need this radio. Show a national hot take. Show a pre-game. Nfl show to tell you that what they've seen has been putrid. Ause you gotta do. Listen the best if you're really judging yourself properly as an nfl player when you sit in the meeting room it is. It's now. I can promise you when they watch the film today. It's not gonna look as good as they think. It never does. But it's going to look a lot better than they've seen down just like it's never you know we see the naked eye like. Oh my gosh they go in there and it's usually never as bad as you think it is either then every now and again you'll have one that you say i've been on teams for the coach. Says was so good. That will watch it on our own. We got to get to the next game because we hammered somebody and got our biggest rival and it's the game of the week and we gotta get started on that so watch the tape on your own with your groups when you can but we gotta move onto the next game. They don't want you to get too caught up in man look at me. We just hung fifty two on well. It's a feel good feeling. You want to get over it quick. It's also i've been in teams when you're like we got beat so badly and the every part of the game was so awful that co they just moved on from. It never did. If you wanted to go watch you. Watch your off season on your own time. You never watched it because need no no need to kick somebody. While they're down. We already know this is just what we need to bury our self esteem and self worth right. Yeah it looked to me when they go watch tapes. They're going to be impressed with some of the great plains they made and they were going to look at it. We gotta do. We can't give up five hundred damn near five hundred total yards and a quarterback throw because next week that guy's better and stafford's a better thrower than cam and blah blah blah. But it look three five yeah. They had three ninety nine price. It looked to me. Because they're gonna look their run offense and say man we got to be betterman but they look to me like they punched back yesterday in all phases of the game. Even though the run game didn't work and they didn't try it much in most phases of the game. It looked to me like they were some some urgent fight in them said. I'm so tired of going in on monday. And seeing this crap and every now and again these guys are professional athletes for a reason. They're good at their craft. They just don't at times execute over there good players. Some great players yesterday looked like they had a bunch of good players. Yeah and that had enough. They fought back and they landed punches and took some punches. But then punched back and every now and again humiliation and the chatter can can drive you to the point of frigging had it and yesterday looked like they'd had seven three two one two five seven nine talk about texans. What was the biggest takeaway for you in the game. It felt like they were more aggressive. Defensively of getting beloved is just the pressure. They put on camera at like hit him. Eight times. had to sex and there's no technical for making big plays in the run game and you know what else. Yeah well we talk about insanity the definition of it the same thing over and over again and get same result and finally said well. Listen we'll get. Let's do something different. And if you saw and there was one they double blitz the safeties both safeties came on a blitz. You don't see that very off justin rey at three and a half tackles for loss yesterday. He's doing this. That's your safety getting involved. Who's normally ten twelve depending on the coverage yards off the ball. Getting your backfield aggressive. He delivered the blow a few times. Yesterday i'm talking about even on plays in the open field late. Some did they were. They were flying around yesterday and a lot of times when you fly around just hit somebody in the opposite color jersey. That's what coaches say. Since you're in pop warner you know. What if you don't know where you're supposed to be fined dude. That's got a different color jersey on a knock the piss right out of him. It looked to me like they were doing some of that. You know it was an aggressive physical game yesterday. We rarely are talking about coming out of a game this year that the texans were physical now offensive line in the run game. That's usually the definition of physical right but they they've been getting finessed. They've been getting physically manhandled and when they play. Well it's usually and they finesse the other team yesterday. Even though the run game didn't show it you can still be physical in a game that you win that. You didn't run for a of yards. And i actually was impressed watson's consistency. I expect. I expected to play. Yeah he was urgent. He was good decisions. They weren't like what did what are you doing. Boom boom boom boom boom. Take off run. You make quick decisions in the trajectory of his ball. Flight indifferent throws was outstanding yesterday and he was decisive. The defense was decisive pressures. Usa hit somebody on defense. What's that yes he space like. He felt decisive on everything. Yeah he did he did. And he didn't have the too costly. Series that steve follows all the talk about every week that there's always a stint in the game and he hasn't done that much this year where it's been the huge turnover or the huge bad series. It costs them game. There's been times he could've made a better throw. That was incomplete the throughout the season but this year has gotten better at not that. Oh my gosh dude what are you doing. I'm a yet. He's got where he's taken three sacks and roll you're like head-scratching right and yesterday was for a great player. This was his best game this year. And i'm not sure it's close no. I'm not sure it was close with decisive. Statistically having his best season ever and he's on a run right now that has been. I mean downright. He's on pace for forty six thirteen. In the thirty two touchdowns eight picks wranglings season at one eight six. And you know what. Say there's numbers again. Four thousand six hundred thirteen years thirty two touchdowns eight picks qb writing since at one eight sixties completing. He's almost up to sixty nine percent of his sixty eight point nine percent for the season. Now here's the craziness if that team's ten and six at the end of the year and those numbers if he's in the mvp talk he finishes in the top five right now. He's not going to russ and cuyler because why they're all on better terms. And when josh allen is going to finish ahead of more than likely more than like and he's had a good. I'm not diminishing. He's got a good season. He's now fifth in the league in passing. Who radio passing tonight. Brady's probably if they go on to win. Brady may even get more votes than watson yet. Watson may have had a better season right so it just winning matters which is odd on the flip side is that they're ten ben. Roethlisberger is not gonna finish in the top five today. If we voted today roethlisberger would not finish in the top five. So it's odd but if you win and put up those numbers and he's having a monster year but when all said and done he'll go back to the drawing board. say this. This is not good enough because it ended with six. Wins or seven wins. He wants ten eleven twelve and playing in january. But he's doing his part and yesterday he did his part as well as he's done it if not better all year all right hour number three next sports. Talk seven ninety sean size. We show the crews here join in seven one. Three two one two five seventy on monday. And we've got a very this. Is the sean salisbury. Show if you had to see the nfl teams right now. One through when are we gonna know forever. Eight teams in the playoffs. Only games think. Right what i've seen so that that's going to be last week or two of the season so right now. We're assuming it's just seven. I think this is all set up right. I think we're getting through it fairly well with six games to go that It seems to me that seven is going to be the call. So just look at the standings right now in your mind and let's roll through Division winners and the three wildcards just for fun so mc just give us the division and we'll pick the winner and see if another wa. I don't even and you mentioned records but we've been watching. We have pretty good idea of team. Seven and three six and four. What have you seen. Let's and in the wild card. It's easier who's gonna what division one start within the nfc f c east the top. That's gonna win the division. I think the cowboys will just look into their schedule. Down the stretch. Your that's just based on staying healthy right. I got the cowboys win it via game or two. There's it's easy and dalton will be the difference because right. I mean who's daniel jones actually baby plan. I mean smith's put up some numbers but daniel jones is as good as anybody in the division but with their weapons. It seems to me the cowboys are gonna win. Any lucky if they get to seven that's stone. Cold lock their scheduled down. The stretch is home from washington at the ravens. Bengals home for the forty niners home for the eagles at the giants. The giants schedule josh mentioned earlier about the giants eagles schedule. Excuse me is home for the seahawks at the packers home for the saints at the cardinals at the cowboys. Home for the redskins. One team makes the playoffs from there. And it's going to be the cowboys. Washington won't make it even if three and seven if the if now if daniel jones keeps playing good football like you're saying they'll hover. Maybe they because they're at the bengals this next week but then they go to seattle home for the cardinals home for the browns at the ravens. Home for the cowboys. It's gonna end up being cowboys. I think it's actually who i think we pick the year now. I didn't pick up the win. Six games but i did pick up a win. The division it's going to be odd. Seeing a division winner was seven games. Max in the playoffs. And i think washington's actually looked a lot better recently but again schedule-wise. They still have steelers seahawks and it's panthers yet panthers. And that's those are all three losses guaranteed almost the washington's defense over the next few years are going to be really good. Yeah they're dangerous. That hit berle. The chase young at the goal. Line put on borough was nasty. Sure was i saw a mandate you could see how violent that dude can fly down the line to and random down so it does not slow no so so there you go so we all have cowboys right. Yeah all right next division. Nfc north the packers at seven and three the bears obviously hovering at five and five. But this one is going to be green bay. I add actually ty and when you look at the viking schedule there's what four they're four and six right now. When you look at their schedule their schedule says were really good. I mean we got a good chance uniform back and tell you. This stretches a cake right. But here's the problem. we were remember. The viking schedule is supposed to be easy yesterday to beat by the dallas cowboys. So they're not may one team from the bears not making the playoffs. I don't think at least right now but we'll get to the wildcard we're sticking to division winners packers in in. It's it's that's easy. Packers are the best team that the nfc south the saints sedate to obviously don't suddenly drew brees has literally fractured every rib. So who knows exactly how long he's gonna be out. They win by tampa. Tonight is eight and two. Well three okay. This game. eleven for them. Yes they had to buy it. Yeah that'd be next week the week after next. okay. I'm gonna say that the tampa bay buccaneers win the division. I think so too. Breathe out the bucks'll end up finding their way to win that division. Like we i think four type of game. Yes sure did and i had. The saints is walk scheduled down the stretch by the way home for the rams tonight then they will host the chiefs next week and the host the vikings but those last three they play at the falcons at the lions home for the falcons. That's an easy. Finish the saints. Schedule is at the eagles home for the chiefs you. At the broncos at the falcons at the eagles home for the chiefs home for the vikings at the panthers is gonna come down and land right. No doubt and depend on when breeze gets back in how he feels. I'm just going to say. I'll take brady. Overtake him hill. At this moment. In time i got tampa bay winning the division. I'm actually gonna take the saints. I think they end up with the same record. I think the saints game but to no at the tiebreaker. I think they get the division because the saints would have to lose twice right right and then they would have to lose twice and they couldn't leave so it's going to be the bigger task is even though we got a backup quarterback the big task tampa. Because you've got be twice. Yeah so you're hoping that if you're if you're tampa 'cause i tell you i believe that the saints think they need homefield advantage and not because crowd that. I'm talking about bad weather on the road. Just like the colts. I think they're very similar when it comes. Yeah they need that closing. So there's no wind or whether it has to do affect the passing game all right so we've got the four way missing west. Afc west it's going to be the well. It's up in the air because tonight it could be. i guess. I don't know how the tiebreaker tiebreaker. The moment the rams win tonight it'll be two teams to seven and three with the seahawks in the rams. The cardinals right behind six and four. What she'll pick one. That's all pick a division winner. We'll get to the wildcard second. Good god see. I'm gonna pull up their schedules. Real quick just read the top three forty niners around worn six. They're not gonna win. The division obviously seahawks scheduled down the stretch They're playing a whole at the eagles next week. Then home for the giants home for the jets at the redskins. Excuse me at washington. Football team Home for the rams at the niners. It's a very they're gonna go minimum of four to possibly five and one. The niners depending on garoppolo gets back and they played better. The rams obviously can beat them. So let's say that they go fine. If the first four games they play there. There's no even with that. There's no way they can lose almost every game with that record right there. I don't even know what the other two with the schedule. The seahawks win in that division. I would think the rams they play the buckler night but then they go home for the niners at the ram at the cardinals home for the patriots. Home for the jets at the seahawks. Home for the cardinals. That's a tough skin. I mean arizona cardinals twice. I the rams. I think the rain's gonna find a way to get in but finishing third honestly just looking at the schedule because the cardinals schedule is at the patriots for the rams at the giants home for the eagles home for the niners at the rams they get a couple games. They'll win against teams. I would say that it's gonna come down to seattle and and arizona. The problem is had one that second game day. We're the same saints tampa bay situation. I'm taking seattle. I understand the defense but four games how they win those first four games going away. It'll all come down to the forty niners rams last two games for them right rams forty niners so even if they go forward to what are they at six wins right now. The game becker. The seahawks are seven and three. The rams are six and three and arizona. Seven three arizona six four. Oh they are. oh then seattle. See to me it comes down. I'll take seattle. I think i think seattle goes minimum four into. I think they're going to go five down the stretch which would get them to eleven. Wins minimum of ten wins. Eleven wins tough division. I'm taking seattle. I will toss. I'll go areas zona. Just because i think by y'all say the first four guaranteed think they got the forty niners trees as well and if the divisions on the line if they i think they beat the rams in that final week of the season it'd be a fun game. Don't get me wrong. Maybe for the division. But i just don't see the cardinals losing more than one game in an amazing we're talking cars. That don't see him lose more than one game lose more than one game just because they don't have the second tiebreaker in the division as opposed to head to head in the division is editor of the conference. The second tie-break been conference. Okay so if it goes head-to-head tied points come in as a later overall points that right now the team with the best record in the division is the cardinals two in one there. Okay so they would they. Would they would win. The tiebreaker seahawks. Her to into the rams are one on one so if it gets down to it in there tied then you go to the next one. Which i think is conference and then overall points. It's going to be safe based on conference right now. It'd be the ram one right there kicking ass. I'm gonna tell you this that it may come down to. That's why if you're seattle you've got to win five of these 'cause if go five and one that would mean that arizona would have to go undefeated to push the tiebreakers and go six and oak because you got a game on them and their schedule says they can go five three divisions frigging brutal okay. Let's quickly in the next couple of minutes. Guys are three wildcards in that conference. Nfc east doesn't add. One saints are going to be one wild card in my mind. Anybody disagree no. I think it comes down to saints rams cardinals. That's your deshaun. Watson books for me because i i had the saints winning see west. Yeah i i don't think the north chicago's offense doesn't i can't see getting anybody on and he doesn't get anybody and we. I think three teams from the west going. All of them will get in. And i'm going to tell you what all three of them are. Dangerous in the postseason. Because i know the rams can beat arizona. I know arizona beat seattle seattle can beat the rams and they can be and you. What's the interesting thing is while pete. Carroll's air the there all perfect for their football teams right. Yeah the key is when you get into the postseason. I'll tell you work becomes a problem for me is golf's capable murray's an mvp metaphysics goff's more than capable. He's a really good player. He s has a pro bowl. And he's you know he's had those type seasons is in the playoffs night. Almo switch while the division winner is going to be seattle every quarterback. You plays good in the postseason for the most part. I don't know if their defense can hold up seattle's now yeah see well. I think they can win the division. I'm not sure they can. They played their match. Fear then defense. Twelfth man was allowed into building agreed. I will come back and do the afc neck so we we all agree on all seven. Playoff teams right. The problem is who gets home field advantage and the only thing you united. We agree on all four division winners. You think arizona's going to ban over seattle. You've got new orleans over tampa but you got the other teams bulls making the client. Yeah so all. Seven games all seven teams. We agree now. If there was an eighth one i guess would come down to like the bears. And it'd be. The bears probably vikings panthera and if the viking exact teams that right now are either hovering around five hundred under five hundred. But i think it's only going to be seven teams and we've picked them all so there you go. You can go ahead. Take that to the bank. Sportstalk seven ninety hour number three rolled along the hottest tastes in houston sports. Mostly either the team. The sean salisbury show continues on sports talk. Seven ninety sportstalk seventy went delve deep. Which took about like thirty seconds by josh defined but so the the tiebreaker he is head to head. Common opponent are win win right. We like we said division was second right and in common opponent. Meaning the teams. You both play your record. Against then conference she'll conferences. Third as opposed to our forth as opposed to third. Common opponent is after inside the division. It's when it gets a little crazy just well then. Points scored data like tiebreakers. You hope you never have to get to like the fifth tiebreaker trying to figure quarterback rating. Right yeah strength of victory. I'm not sure exactly what that decides. What the strength of victory. Preseason predictions preseason predictions on record or people who decides strength is it because at the end of the season what their record was. You're assuming let's say the texans were to go four and allow foreign twelve. Yeah that you assume that even though they got good players that they're horrible team so if you beat them it's kind of a weak strength the victory right or if they're eight eight. Obviously so i would imagine that it's not the preseason stuff goes on or how many points they've beaten somebody else by that you. Just don't you think strength. The victory comes down to what your record is. Yeah if it goes into well. They lost to a team. That would try to figure that out. Well strength the victory. The texans lost to kansas city so we got to hold that string victory even though they were in under five hundred team a little heart a little. Hold more weight than we would have jacksonville victory over indianapolis who You know what i mean. It's just all those things you just hope. Once you get past conference usually don't have to get past the fourth type usually. It doesn't get that far. No you conferences. Usually where it in they have goes all the way until twelve address. Victory at strength of schedule than best combined ranking among conference teams and point score two points allowed combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed best net points in common games. Best points in all games but net touchdown all games and then you get to coin. Toss hits why that back. Yeah you don't ever want it to come to that. We get that overtime hints back to if a teams at twenty. And you're up twenty one points while you still may think about the plan. I know it may not come to people see people that are watching are thinking about what if it got to that tiebreaker. Or if your team you know which drives us crazy you've got a fourteen point spread it's fourteen and a half for fourteen sprint. Somebody back door covers you and takes your money right. Some of them right in the end in the end. You're like damn as a team. Let's stop that team. Screw the back door. We gotta stop that team in case we'll get a tiebreaker so he have fifty one in at the four yard line. And you're you're a team that you like will. We may come down to a tiebreak whether we win the division. I you might wanna hand the ball off and try to get the end zone to get extra points because at some point is crazy and in twenty twenty who knows it may come down to that as crazy as this crap spin. So you don't wanna rub it in but you fronted in from a yard out may be smart thing right. Yeah but like for instance. Nick chubb smart decision not to do it. What if it came down to a tiebreaker with baltimore oh my that touchdown prevented him by a good guy. Doing the right thing. And the deadly shawn watson. Get the ball. Doing the right thing comes back and says oh man. You guys lost by six points. What right would that suck if you're game but you hope it doesn't get to that all right let's get to the afc. Let's start. what in the east east. Yes the buffalo bill. Sit at seven three. The dolphins are behind the six and four buffalo in the vision. Yeah miami's nice story but maybe a year or so away yeah. This isn't something that's telling him. Everything point differential for those two teams this season miami's outscored their opponents by sixty two points. Buffalo just seven goes back to miami would fit going in hammer san francisco member. They scored forty plus or something on. Now she's funny to save a couple big because you wrote to the next division. I'll give you another one of stanford just funky and you know. What's the trip is it. What do we always based buffalo on the past great defense. mcdermott team. The truth is they're all offenses carrying them and they're winning games like thirty eight thirty five. I mean games. That are coming right down to it. They look didn't they. Then they've lost a couple of clubbing close games that they're scoring points but there are also the other teams seattle game. Then what. They both in the upper thirties and again the buffalo beat too high forty forty two thirty eight or something right. So it was their defenses uncharacteristically given more points than their close yet. Their offense is having a josh ounce. Having a pro year stefan digs is having an all pro year. So they're scoring points and just giving more than we're used to buffalo in buffalo wins the division. I think buffalo goes twelve and four is looking at their schedule is not very tough and they they should be the favorite each one of those games right and crazy enough twelve and four thirteen and three would normally get you home. Field advantage there. The rest of the way is the steelers and they're not going stiff home field advantage. Pittsburgh ain't losing four games. Yeah in miami just behind them. They've got at jets for bengals home chiefs home. Patriots at raiders at bills story possibly another nine and seven type season. They're going to be the mix for wockhardt. Yeah they are the buffalo. We all agree yes next. Afc north steelers sitting at ten ano- obviously the browns seven three followed by the ravens at six four Just from the point differential thing. I was talking about the steelers. Plus one twenty four of their opponents this year. The second place team the browns bike. I guarantee it's less than fifty minus twenty three third place team the ravens on they get beat. They had the third place team the ravens plus seventy three now while get their plus seventy three and sitting in third place. Yeah that is goes to show. Its timing right. Yeah obviously pittsburgh wins that division matter of fact pittsburgh is going to have the luxury three and three right you're gonna wind pittsburgh's going to have the luxury in their division of resting but as law. You wanna keep what can't see. He's got one loss you want. Save them off. Because you don't want to go. I could care less about if there's fans in the stands you don't want to go to kansas city. Kansas city's more equipped in my mind to go to heinz. Field in pittsburgh is to go to kansas city unless doing this bubble right right right right. But i'm if a not the pittsburgh can't win there but the heinz field tough place to go play. So that's the reason they're not gonna cause cancer the ain't going away. Man the raiders. Matter of fact the raiders have played them tough for any team. Has all your long twice. This year. should starting to show some frigging toughness in their organization. Gruden's got him going and they're tougher now and cars proven that he deserves. It looks like they may have their quarterback right. It's been as best year. yeah well. He's having a pro bowl. I mean he's putting up completing seventy percent or so revenue passes played well size matter of fact they should have won the game. I mean against a normal quarterback. You probably do win. The game mahomes had to come back and get two touchdowns. Beautiful boy was like both both teams long drives and start the half like executing. You're jealous if you're jealous of offense of football and envious hell it is it made you look around say cash. Those teams look how they're calling place. So yeah we're used to have. Can't sabit oakland's getting to that point where like. Oh and josh jacobs grown man. Now las vegas. He kept saying. I keep role clint. Yeah they're always going to be there in san diego sandiego. Charges to me is a guy who grew up saying how could i not call them. That stanfield junior. Say hello my not calling. The san diego charged. But i'm gonna have to get used to. Las vegas raiders. It just sounds weird does. But it's las vegas raiders. And that's who they are just like when you say redskins is no but i still do the easy to do the washington football team. At some point time they'll have a name just don't know win So yeah pittsburgh pittsburgh's got to play for day. They'd like to game cushion going into the last game of the season. So they could give back hammy that they because if if we don't get to the covid part of it then they will get that by week in the in the wildcard round right so they can move forward all right so we got pittsburgh. We got buffalo. Afc south tennessee. Titans are all right now. The colts are at the top at seven and three titans also seven and three coal schedule down the stretch. They played the titans next week at home. And they're at the texans at the raiders. Home for the texans at the steelers home for the jags and then the tight schedule looks like this there at the cult's next week home for the browns at the jags home from lions at the packers at the texans. Both of those schedules are pretty difficult. I think the titans scheduled for me looks easier tablet. The colts are playing better football right now especially now. Philip rivers playing good football especially on the defensive in their defense has been really. You mentioned the down. Raj raj make any defense look bad but their defense against the run playing well. Philip rivers needs to be at home season. Now typically we'd be. Okay i mean for the regular season debut. You know maybe on the road. You're feeling less optimistic about them. Because it's half. Their games are on the road the rest of the season. But i mean the texans game doesn't really matter because it'll end up being ended up being indoors at worst. It's an outdoor stadium. That feels indoor agreed. I'm gonna go with what i picked to the preseason colts to win the division colts. Play the texans twice. And i got the colts to win the division. Yeah the titans. I think the titans into only being second half four and then. I think the colts are probably around like that. Ten in six range. And it's it'll be close. But i think the raiders and steelers are two losses. I think they'll have. Who are you. Take the last six games. Rivers are tannahill. the ways plane in ain't got rivers point when he can set his fees. Because you just bit okay of life on the shallow crosser where he can got on the ball and ran after the catch. He's doing really good things. You know what frank reich getting the ball out of hand for a team. That's not run into exceptionally well. Yeah they're playing defense and rivers is playing. This is the rivers the last couple of weeks they wanted to get. That's why they got him. Like tannehill was good enough yesterday. Obviously to touchdown or was he does a great job man. He really has in the last twenty two games before he was one. One forty seven three touchdowns no pick me. He the ball since the since. The texans gamer threw for three sixty six. He hasn't yards everything he hadn't been over to fifty until yesterday all right. So so you've got. We got to colts and a titan. Yeah all right then. Quickly kansas city. Obviously we'll come back discuss. Afc wildcard teams sports. Talk seven hundred. You guys chime in if you think different. If you think there's somebody else chance love to hear from you. Seven one three two one. Two five seven ninety. Get your butt up. It's thanksgiving week. Start get yourself get the turkey process thought process going on cooking your meal already. Where do you are you even yet thank you. You're starting to cycle. I started digging desert mentally. Get through it. Let's go go all right. Someone three to one thousand five hundred. Ninety are afc wildcard picks. We're also gonna start to chip away at. Maybe we'll settle up a super bowl champion for here in the next by the time showing. I don't know maybe we will never know sports. Talk seven hundred. James as james harden the saw salisbury so concedes the saws very soak the sauce cleanup ought sports sports. Talk seven hundred four in the afc. Now let's go through our nfc or are afc wildcard. So we chose. Here's what we chose. In the nfc we got tampa bay seattle green bay and the dallas cowboys and either way wildcard of division between the three of us. And then we have the new orleans saints. The sanford's i mean the new orleans saints the rams and the arizona cardinals as the wild card division dependent on all seventeen for us with the same just depends on who wins the division. The afc we got the chiefs. We've got the pittsburgh steelers. We got the buffalo bills. And we have the indianapolis colts and or the tennessee. Titans so quickly we might as well just hit the saudi of the wild cards. I will throw tennessee and is a wildcard for sure. Yeah i think that the titans find their way into their for sure to me. The other the other team clearly is propaganda. Being the browns. And i'll take the raiders as well. Browns and raiders k. You're leaving ravens out. I will leave the ravens out. I think the raiders scheduled down the stretch. And i mean look the ravens are good. But they're not playing football grade. Can't give him to the raiders down the stretch of plan. That at the falcons next week at the jets home for the colts home for the chargers home for the dolphins at the broncos schedule should be foreign to or schedule ten right and yeah baltimore down the stretch here. In the regular season they are playing At the steelers home for the cowboys at the browns home for the jags home for the giants at the bengals. There says their schedules favorables well. But i guess. I'm just going off of las vegas playing good football where i'm going to pick okay. So you've got the cleveland browns. You what the hell's going on by. The i had three teams from this from the north. Getting to the playoffs. Okay i'm gonna add the browns as well with the titans. I think they're run games devastating for teams as long as they. Don't turn it over there going to be in them. All and they they won yesterday with myles garrett right and they gotta get him back because of the covid situation. So i'm gonna take the browns you. Who's your next team. I'm gonna go raiders as well raiders and brown's case. You're going raiders and brands. Comes down to the raiders ravens for me. I'm taking the raiders as well and we're nuts. Yeah i don't have faith in what we've seen from the ravens. You know. I'm just don't worry we'll get the tweet from the one guy. That is ravens fan. And i get it from every time. We mentioned that ravens crew bucks scores. No we're not just looking at some of football. You look that good test will tell you. I don't need a box to tell me about the offensively. They're not much of a threat. I would take out. It's odd to believe that the ravens are gonna get left out of the playoff picture and who else we miss in the afc. There's going to be. The dolphins are still the dolphins region their schedules six sixty four. That's really yeah. It's the final team. Come down to dolphins ravens raiders. The patriots had a chance to linger if they want. But now they're four and six months to overcome. I don't think the broncos we'll there at foreign six they're tech too much too much to overcome so really for four teams in my opinion for me. It comes down to the four teams for the wildcard or tight tines or colts but will just say titans for now. Titans raiders ravens browns and dolphins. Okay you've picked three of those and to me. I think the ravens and dolphins are gonna get left out and both may be right around nine. I mean i expect the ravens to get to nine wins and the dolphins to get close. Ravens only have to three and three to get to nine zero seven. Three three six and four six three and three. That'll get him nine at seven. Yeah which is much different than fourteen in two but the eye test tells you that the ravens are not playing great football. There's just not and they can stop some teams defensively. But they're not right there not throwing the ball very well as many plays at that position. Only pittsburgh they'll they can get shut down. I mean they go pointy basically any of these teams outside of what buffalo and remember. They got pittsburgh. I think in pittsburgh. Because ben said he hated playing in baltimore. The win say didn't like that facility and they still won which is a good thing so so we've said we have all seven teams the same in both confidence they should. I mean it's weird that foreign the wildcard in the afc for the raiders will be the last instead of the browns. Yeah okay. I think i'd. I'd the raiders more than the colts. I think the coach will be my last team in honestly and yet you and i have the vision. Yeah i just. Their defense is set up for january. They play really good defense. Playing the texans two times the rest of the regular season because even if the texans are coming off a game this past week where they've played better football when they go under the games against the colts. I'm not going to expect the texans to beat them. The texans that the problem is the colts defense can shut the texans passenger. Irving's h royal against the texans just last year right and in the past like in the texans we cam. Newton threw for three sixty five yesterday. Filbert showed he was one. Dimensional in philip rivers will throw on people. I mean the only way you beat them as if they just dial pressure the entire time and you've got to find a way to solve their defense. And i know people say well the the the the packers did well. We're dealing with a different dude there even though watson's going to be a different dude. Rogers right now is in a different stratosphere most. Okay so yeah i would. The packers are a better team than the texan. So you can understand what and yet the colts still found ways to get it done which honestly battling back and hanging in there. Yesterday it was a gut check win for them. Yesterday really was gacek. And i know they did it in their building right. It was in. Yeah they did in their building. Because i'm thinking of course they did. Sean you watched the game with an doors. Packers play indoors. But i think the colts if rivers plays like this. They're really the they've got a legit shot in to move to win a game or two in january but the guy. Who's been your boozed you brought for. A reason becomes outdoors in bad weather. Maybe one of your bigger weaknesses off. Yeah i honestly. That's the biggest thing with the colts. I'd know rivers is played. well recently. let's go again. I just don't trust that guy. It always when he was on the chargers it always felt like they were down late and he'd have a chance to come back and win it and he often wouldn't and with the colts have a really good defense. He's gotten these lease and he's been more comfortable and they don't have to worry about coming back. In general you're to trust the guy. Holtz losing a playoff games. Twenty one seventeen and riverstone two picks and losing a game. Now they're indoors and everything's going. Well hell you can see them win and thirty one. Twenty eight over thirty one. Twenty seven over a raider team right. Yeah and they're building so it just depends on. Obviously vegas isn't going to be exactly cold if you play on the road there but point being is you don't want to go to kansas city. Okay you you don't wanna go to pittsburgh. If you're philip rivers and those defenses especially pittsburgh who will make you do a lot of crazy as things in a pocket that he doesn't wanna have to do. Yeah you let him you. Let him climb north and south. He did it a couple of times. Yesterday sidestep climb hit a dig route. That's when rivers is at his best that anytime you take them off the mark we set it on here and that'll be. That'll be the texans challenge. That'll be anybody's challenge. Who plays him because he's in rhythm and thrown like he did yesterday. He matched rogers throw for throw yesterday. Yeah but we all know that ronaldo's can play in snow in a parking lot. If you play in there. I think in the towards the end of the regular season for the six games for the culture in what we would call controlled environment right right. He'll do fine he'll and controlled environments for him. He'll put up numbers you always. Unless he's on his back which the colts offensive line doesn't let him sit on his rear end often. All right sports talk seven ninety waterlog now number. Three back to sean salisbury. Show on sports. Talk seven nine. Houston your your rockets. Your voice with extinct on detroit's auto we've had it. Said he got the play we already got. You don't even need to play the playoff. The rest of the season we know who's making a plow already gave him the fourteen. We're good to go couple of teams are going to get left out. Who's a better conference. Nfc still thanks. Good i mean had the best team right all right. Let's let's work from the bottom up. Who's a seventh best team in our playoff structure in the nfc rams cowboys. The worst is so. Let's say the best there. And let's say the raiders. Let's just say the raiders are the last wildcard fan. Even though cowboys are win the division of the seventeenth the nfc. Those other sixteenth are better than the dallas cowboys. We're just going okay. Let me ask you this. Let's flip this. I'm going to say let's just regardless of where they are. Who's the worst team in the seventeen and a playoff browns. Yeah just because. They haven't had the raiders and they're building. The brand seven had that threat of beating. You with a throw. Okay so let's rounds or seventh place. Yes just say all right. Who's better browns or cowboys. Browns they beat the crap out of them. Didn't they okay yes. There's one checklist right k. So we got that one off. Who's a sixth graders and rams fair. Wait a minute. Let's see who else in the. Nfc bump bump bump bump skull raiders. And let's go raiders. Ramps who you like. I like the raiders. I do too. I just like the way that they've i liked. The way dare dare cars crumbled and some big gains in the past not this year not this year now right. He was great yesterday was and he was great when they played them in their building. All right so josh. Any disagreement now think i would normally does it. Feel like the raiders. Have they had those up and down games. But man when they played the chiefs they look like a legit teams that play. Great against good teams. Because that's what you're going to play in the postseason so they're elevating against good teams right now. Which i like all right. So who's the fifth best team because the other wildcard str- Who we miss in the afc. Let's okay y'all had the colts. I believe her titan five. Who's who's in the nfc in the nfc at this point we're talking about what cardinals right yeah. Cardinals are seahawks. whoever doesn't win the division. I think the cardinal cardinals and say Cardinals verse the titans. I would take arizona just because i'd like their quarterback more. But i think the titans teams i would take see. I would take the titans in the game because physical if they played each other. I would end up taking the titans i like. I love chance better just because of their quarterback. But i say that in tannahill help me he. He wasn't like they ran the ball. They were see. I would personally. I always want to choose the quarterback in that. But i think tennessee beat them. I would take tennessee in that game. Experience does provide. You have two thousand bucks. Oh you take the who are you. Betting giannakou cardinals. honestly i take tennessee. So we're just trying to val k. The fourth best team in the afc colt the worst day. Zhen winter correct colts against let's say the depict tampa or the tampa saint seattle. Which one well. Technically the you just talking about fourth-best or fourth aren't we all we on five right now. We're on four. You're right it's right now. It'd be healthiest foresees in right. Now to get into their leading up to withdraw under our prediction center our at the end of the season. Yeah who's going to be the four seater i. What is the best team because we put the cowboys team. Let's say let's go right now. We'll go tampa since the saints lead them. Let's just say for the elvis tampa. Yeah tampa verse colts. I'll take the buccaneers have no hesitation. I'll i'll take tampa so we got the majority says three to the afc wanted the nfc right now. Correct k with one vote for arizona if we had thousand this if we have our money we've got a bet on these teams k. third-best if we took tampa then we'll go seattle the seattle vs buffalo. Right yeah i got buffalo. I think buffalo's d. I think buffalo's better team now. Russell wilson may win out. I think i'd have to know where the seattle won that game right. No langham sorry. It's close yeah in buffalo close. I'll take buffalo. I take buffalo to just because although the quarterback thing russell wilson would take russell wilson over. Okay hello who would you choose joshua seattle ethics. Let's just pick seattle because wilson even though allen's playing. Well i would take k so now we go three one. Let's go three. That's at four. No that's three and to be took tampa bay now down to last two. Let's say let's give its due respect. You got kansas city is number one. Although most of us would probably picked up the win if pittsburgh played kansas city i think kansas city against new orleans kan city chiefs not even thinking about chafes. Right no question. All right. that's four and let's at four and to all right and then the pittsburgh steelers versa. Green bay packers damn near awash. But i take pittsburgh better defense. Yeah i take pittsburgh to any different anyway by different. No rogers is so good. Then ain't far behind. Yeah i think green beige. There's you can see the flaws and the team in its you could see costing them in a big game Right see and i'm with you. Mcu look at it. We sail and nfc but when you go through it head to head afc. We thinks better five to get through. I mean if you just base it matched. And i like to work for the by if we say the top heavy teams the four top heavy teams in my mind if you talk about today even though i still think tampa. I'm still not getting away from tampa getting into the super bowl if they can win the right kansas city pittsburgh. Here's the deal is cancelled. He pittsburgh no brainer in the afc in the nfc naming the two top teams in the nfc. You'll pick four different. You're not sure even if you don't have one yet got i think it's i think tam who belongs as one of them okay. Then then you're going to say tampa green bay. I would imagine. I think that's exactly where i'd go with me too. And that's sliding the saints but with and that's only because of the question mark breeze and at the end of the season last year to come back from the injury in very good all the other. Four teams have healthy quarterback who know how to win a matter of fact all four got super bowl rings. And it's good taste. Bill may end up being or jameis winston opinion right now. It's tastes some hill. I listen andrew. Breeze comes back. Hell he had enough trouble driving his throws when fully healthy right even though he was really accurate horizontally so the afc better the afc bec because the best team in the afc is better than the best team in the afc teams in the nfc. Yeah in a head to head. I'm going to say yes brady. And rogers don't equal it out because they're great players but the overall teams can't say in pittsburgh in my mind or clearly the two best teams in the nfc. The too few one of those two teams as of today to me should win the super bowl and watch playing in the super bowl. Be actually be shocked to watching kansas city again last night like this is. This is no slight pittsburg. Can't cities better. Let me tell you. The trees the city different. There are different level the match. He wanted the fourteen in truth. If you want the who doesn't want to see brady verse. Rogers which we aren't we seeing that it's brady vs mohammadi brain him coming up. We already saw brady. Roger and roger's keyed wanna rematch saying. Is you want to see that the postseason even if it's an radio game right you want to see that matchup again to see how rogers responds. Even if it's early in the playoffs i'm not talking about the nfc championship game in the afc. They'd you can't do now. I know who. I'd love to see the raiders in that the truth matters if you want physical nasty great play. Common great quarterback play today. I don't know how you wouldn't crave kansas city. Pittsburgh in the postseason for that. Just a casual football observer. I want nothing other than kansas. That's not the texas tech in me. I want nothing. But kansas city planning rogan. Because i know they're the texans conference and it sucks. They beat them in the playoffs. It's going to suck on them for years to watching that guy play. Football and football is an absolute treat iran because and go look at like the play. He made last night where he's running back to his left and has two guys coming down on him crosses across his body. When travis kelsey is still shrinking across the field to put the ball in a place that nobody in this frigging world should be able to throw it to as he's moving completely opposite direction with zip on it like it's just stupid. Throws better retreating and rodgers still better retreating in the history of this game let alone gently. I like him. The best as much as i've never liked the patriots. I've loved enjoying watching tom. Brady play for years. Because he's the best at what he does. And i know it was to watch that for years with mahomes and i enjoy it. And he would elevate. I guarantee come january and february if you were quite if if brady was playing mahomes in the super bowl the it'd be an epic performance you would see the best of brady and you'd see the best in a home. That would be an ideal match up. That i'd love to see but i'm not gonna turn down. Ben roethlisberger verse aaron rodgers. Either but man we got you start to think about guys. We got some pretty good quarterbacks. The top of the league band o. Yeah oh we left the oh by the way guys in the playoffs. Her cuyler murray and and philip rivers. I mean come on now. We're pretty loaded at those are probably two teams outside. The cowboys with dak was healthy. Who knows we're two hundred and sixty million dollar quarterback or two hundred whatever it's gonna be. You're right sports. Talk seven hundred fun conversation. I enjoyed this man just trying to break down we thought. Nfc on the service truth is the afc right. Now's deeper into the from the bottom up. Not just the top to the bottom and the top teams in the afc. I think most of us would bet thousand dollars that they were the ones if you had to go on. A pecking order sports. Talk seven ninety time. French sean salisbury. This is the sean salisbury. Show very every week guys. There's things and i see this in my newspaper that i read every week. You know we talk about know. We always overreact or under react but thirty plus things. What is it thirty two things that we learned from this game. Yeah the top is no one. You know tatum hill. His while he may not be drew brees drew brees like numbers eighteen and twenty three for two thirty three no touchdowns and he rushed for a team. I fifty one yards and scored twice. I to me it touchdown whether you rush ford around throw doesn't matter as long as you're getting there you're in the red zone and your effective at scoring good for you. That's what you needed. That drew brees is is thrown for five hundred sixty five career. Td passes you know how many and tastes meal of combined for in their careers. Same out came out taste thrown. But that's okay. He runs in yesterday. He proved that he can hold this down at least for one week. We know that he can hold this down until it will tell whack. What's their who their schedule. Head just looked at this but they're playing. No they don't have tampa after broncos next week that one sets up for taste hill game in the cold weather possibly go ahead and just let him run. And they're at the falcons so look fine. The next two games nichols he'll it'll be the if he's playing so when they play the win most of their issue go rhino until they get to him until they get the homes. And that would be trouble even with drew brees at quarterback for anybody. But do you know that they are also you know who the number one seed in the nfc s today so saints. Because they obviously danny annapolis remember. We sat here and said that. They didn't look like they're gonna be. They look like they're slipping and they're not gonna still hanging around they. They hadn't really played their best football. We saw that right a cough their way to what eight and two and their defense is their defense will get after you a little bit too so i like it. Let's see you know a breeze In two hundred eighty four regular season appearances breezes rush for how many touchdowns in in those two two of them yesterday ever run for both the thirty one yards at agape twenty fewer than hill managed on sunday. So there is something like about both at everybody has their strikes right guys. Yeah so that's pretty interesting on on that flipside of Hack go back to this all things. Now yeah i screwed the pooch sometimes computers can do that or you can do that with computers to me. Him hilas wet. I think teams were hoping a tim. Tebow type would be like. You could see that type of work for those type of guys but for only test functional mechanics. He's at least you don't have to completely completely overhaul his motion and by the way i was doing a little look in this week and do you know how many times we talked about to the hundred times this season ended at. Byu today injury the three times. Three or four. Yeah four point five. Yeah and plus the to your michigan four times his size and this dude's any. It's not like those foresees that injury and they were little injuries with the knees and the rest of it but also to go on and play the type of game he is which is a constant. He doesn't run away from contacts. My point yeah. This guy's been banged up and still you. Know wonder sean. Payton loves the dude man regardless he just. He's the type of guy every team. Have you noticed that teams now. Like with deebo samuel with his swiss army knife. Everybody's trying and we used to have one with randall. L right we everybody's trying to have that guy who can do a little bit. Everything right yeah. It's a pretty and it's a. It's a great trait to have. They always said the more you can do grownup. Guess what some of those dudes actually live by that. Right on the field. Michael thomas A factor too. He takes him hit him. What nine times yesterday. How you when you were the when you were in that role of backup quarterback role isn't does the coach emphasized you. Hey we have. Because you had. Chris carter you. Have this unbelievable do disease. Just look for that one guy. Most the time you're gonna be okay. No there was. It was interesting. they would. They didn't say that. Because because he carter steve jordan. We were pretty loaded right if you have one guy and you're struggling or if you were a rookie somebody may come to you and say like brian billick and say when in doubt yucky not he he may win. Yeah okay eighty might be open but funny story mc. I don't know if i've said this on this. I'm a rookie in seattle. And we're getting. We're going to mini camp right and we have a play cloud. I'll never forget it rookie. And then all of a certain camp and you show up as a as a rookie in deer scared to death right vera. I got the original. Kurt warner running back. And you know steve. L'argent and dave craig. I mean we are. We're loaded with frigging great players Jacob green i mean we had great players everywhere and so we get there and first of all chuck. Knox was a defensive head coach. So they the the way they called offense was from the defensive side so normally when you're a quarterback or an offense even is to the right odd is to the left non seattle. Yeah we had to completely learn. We'd run so if you ran. Twenty eight toss twenty eight pitch. Normally you'd be running. Toss to the right. Yeah that would be left. So even was to the left and odd to the right. So you're a rookie. Like all my whole life. So you had to like put plus and minus on the to-. You're thinking okay sean. The odd to the right guys. Just remember to get yourself going because all you wanted to do at many campuses be able to get in and out the huddle. So you're not sitting around ten veterans in. They're looking like hey rookie. Let's let's go get this out of your mouth so you're scared to death. Anyway try to do. I played it. S with a bunch of great hall of fame players yet. Still these your new teammates and you want to impress them. Well we had a play called gun now. We were actually guys doing this. This is one thousand nine hundred six. We are actually doing what you're seeing now friend. You chuck knox off. Chuck was known in buffalo's ground and pound. Just hand the ball off. Play defense well. We were actually with l'argent and paul scanty receivers it. Could i mean we. We spread them out. And we'd call gun rights spread so back to now they just call. The play in. The quarterback gets the gun. Because it's odd normal now. If you want to get under city you gotta let them know. Used to be tap. I'm getting a gun. Yeah so we call gun rights bread and there was a play called seven. Seventy five y option or seven seventy five whip. Another play was called gun. Rights spread gun left. Spread seventy y option and the. Why was steve large in our four wide receiver to buy to set and he'd read a comeback on the outside he'd run three way and it was a four way break. If you played zero coverage press man he can run an inside fade if it was off zone stretched the cone the inside the they were dublin it out because everybody knew that large it and we ended up that year to to push ahead the best third down and five plus team. I think in the league that year. David craig was a master at it right but steve would press the outside of the cone. Sit down against zone. If it was outside man he could push up and run away at six yards inside. Man push up inside push off and runaway outside so four four-way break usually three-way break because did people didn't wanna play pro play us a lotta zero coverage because large. It was so good even though he went. Facet beat new right and so we call the play minicamp. Gun rights spread seventy option. And i asked my office coordinator and quarterback coach kenny. Myron steve martin. What's the read. And i ask david craig and ask you'll gilbert and we go through and say stole the ball to eighty who was not the eighty. You're talking about steve. And i'd say and of all the players i've seen my whole life steve large instill of all the ones. I've played with the best route runner. I've ever been around. And that's saying something. If he was running he steve. Larger was playing in this offense the slot short dude with his quick he'd catch one hundred and fifty balls he'd brady and his day. He was welker adamant combined. Before welker nettling were in the womb right large. It was phenomenal. So he seventy option. So what's the read. Because i wanted to know well if the say what did they rotate down. We throw on the backside comeback. What we thought to eighty. So i went through the whole. Three day mini camp. They could come back to training camp at the same thing i said. Okay now. it's the offseason. What's the read phillips eighty. Who has training come on. We go to. I'd be sitting there. Dave craig's today. What's where he goes just dropped back to that guy. What's the good. Well here's the other ones. But you're going to throw it to eighty and damn dude. I'm telling you every time. Yes the only time. You didn't throw it to him is if he fell down he never fell down the reason why was he was so good at understanding coverage that you didn't every now and again david craig. Maybe oh both guys pinch the corner off. It was just shooting fish in a barrel. Ain't never done it before but it seems easy to throw it. Eighteen back. Fifteen comeback with guys said on side ninety percent of the time when they called seventy normally coach say go y two z to check down or to the to the backside flat route who's sitting on the sidelines of back. Kurt warner check and and getting out of the battlefield right. You didn't want to get too far off the field. Because if the uae option broke you didn't want 'em running into each other on the backside. Okay you never got to do so that joking around when you say. I'll just throw to chris carter. I was fortunately a good receiver. So i'd been long macro maybe as a rookie. They would've but as a rookie there and they didn't just say it to me. They've taught eighty or seventy often thought to him. Please just steve largest go win out get they play box and one on you. We're throwing it to you and so my whole career. I left seattle to this day. I don't really remember who the third option was. We rarely rarely ever got to the second option. And david greg. Through the steve large and eighteen billion times on seventy option. And guess what steve large did about seven million nine hundred ninety nine thousand one it was it was it was a phenomenal. It was simple every now and then coach smirk and say don't mess with all that watch eighty he's gonna win throw it to him. And we'd call it on third and for third and five. And steve knew that if it were certain six what he'd do he'd get off quick and make sure you got to seven so when he stepped back to the quarterback it still became a six so we get the first down he was brilliant the most brilliant understanding football iq of a receiver. And i've been around. Chris and i mean these great receivers over the course of time this is. He was his brilliant at understanding. The secondary and coverage is any guy. I've ever been around and boy was a joy to play with sportstalk. Seven hundred we'll come back. There's things going on in the nfl. Well that happened that we found out yesterday. We already knew and improved and this team. That's in this hour sports. Talk seven ninety. John salisbury very show continues on sports. Talk seven nine hundred for your home. Teams sportstalk seven ninety mike By the way. Thomas is a receptions new orleans just a few things about this four hundred eighty nine career receptions in the most compiled by any player in his first five. Nfl seasons yeah. Incredible kamara is the first player to start as crew with four consecutive seasons with both five hundred yards rushing and receiving he is still seeking his first eight hundred double double overfull campaign. Remember when roger craig rushworth thousand caught passes for a thousand yards in san francisco. This was back in the eighties. Impressive does everything for that team. So it's at camerin. You can thousand thousand last year wasn't he. I think he was the first player since since. I think he was was first player. Since roger craig thirteen eighty seven rushing one thousand five receiving with one hundred sixteen reception. Yeah roger craig. I want to say roger criminals. He might have caught. Did he catch like eighty balls that year. I i don't think he got to one hundred. But mccaffrey i believe. I don't think we've had anybody to double down since since roger craig. If i'm not mistaken there's been guys like maybe marshall faulk that he get close you might have. I was ten fifty sixteen. He had ninety two catches there. You go and look in the league right out of the backfield on that west coast offense and he was a teammate of mine in minnesota to what a said he was did a thousand thousand yards nine he was the only other guy that is another one that i would have thought about was ladainian. Tomlinson thomason got twenty five. There you go with the sole team forty vaulted that with the greatest show on turf of the mistake and right so there you have three dudes. So that's a. That's a rarified. Air matt ryan would get what eight times yesterday. That's another that's a lot. Yeah there he goes. We roll through head both quarterbacks in the league because i was able to do the taste hill tied in thing. It didn't matter mind crappy ass team which lost deondraye swift last minute to after already. Losing mccaffrey like i. I got my ass kicked but matt ryan. I played him a quarterback he's just ass tastes mills. Great and i wish i could keep at the tight end spot moving four. But that's not having by the way matt damon thomas show flip the fricken lid about it on friday about tasting. He'll be able to be used at quarterback. Ross is getting all hot and bothered that. I shouldn't be able to use mat tightening. Because they were mad that i went and got him. I i even. I saw that even on like twitter from yeah. They kind not even people from here. I'm talking about like outside another one said using the. I can't remember who it was said using tastes. Hill is a quarterback or as a tight end trash. They better scout day called me exactly. They called me. And i went on the show with them and like the second segment because they were like. You shouldn't be able to do it. You should be able to like. I didn't write the rules for. Espn their rule. Say that we that we can use in their well. We're going to take rosco all. Want to take away his points. For passing you can have as rushing and his if he doesn't he receiving yards. You can you can't have. I'm like no the rules. I'm sorry that the rules say that. I could do it. My team was also formed six worrying about me. I'm not making the playoffs. I had i ended up having tasted hill. Because we did. They did an instant poll and listeners. Should be able to do it and they voted voted for me. 'cause i told i told. Ross he's over here trying to change the rules. He sounds like donald trump won the election. And that. I think that one be some folks because it was funny a but the it didn't matter because my my ass team with tatum hill at at quarterback at the tight end spot. I lost the worst team in the league. Chris gordon so don't worry about it. Ross go get hot and bothered again. Ross isn't listening cheap. Brasco has gotta be the sheets right now. One hundred percent of the way ross. Thanks for the chilly. It's always good chili. He makes it. I love chile to and he always brings me a batch when he makes enough for the peop- so thank you roscoe. It was good. Hey justin herbert get a lotta the sick about all the great rookies. We've right quarterbacks. They know that. Herbert for the guy that we thought was going to be the what who played. Do you realize he's the first rookie in league history. He's thrown a pair of touchdown passes and seven consecutive games these stats. Some of them are fascinating. You think Marino had to that you're mahomes had to is rookie or mahomes rookie year. He played one game so he did start to go through. The list of guys who played mayfield even is rookie year. But i think he ended up. Doing nineteen or twenty. Two twenty seven touchdown nineteen is rookie. Was in one thousand nine and nine or something. Some sort of. Let's say you start going through. All these rookies and you're like elway or aikman. Anything seven consecutive games. We've never had a quarterback in history do this and it's even crazier that they barely held on against the jets and there are three and seven with that level of production quarterback. It's kind of like what happens here. You think man. If you're getting that how are you now winning. And here's another one. He's also the first rookie in the super bowl era. Excuse me since one thousand nine hundred sixty sixty six since nineteen sixty six sixty seven five games with at least a trio of td passes he's thrown fifteen touchdown passes in five games three of three inches a rookie on a team that we didn't know it was going to be very good Ben roethlisberger is the only rookie. Qb to start four now in the past four decades crazy obviously clay pulls the first white out that take that back is the only wideout during the super bowl era to score ten touchdowns in his first ten games. Only go through. The list of rookies have been pretty good at that one and here one wants to give the nate davis. A usa. Today wants to give the mvp. This is why the steelers are dangerous. Guys side from their offense was then you're talking about bannon claypool and connor and their offensive line. They can run it. But i've been saying all year long. They're the fastest defense league in my mind from sideline to sideline and they're nasty. Think about this now the steelers it decided it leaked total. Thirty eight sack sunday. They've already got thirty eight sacks we're ten games in their eleven games and are they eleven. They're eleven and own aren't they. Then they get to eleven to know. Yesterday they ten dollars. Steelers are ten ten and okay there. That's right right because we said one team played dying and that's right ten in. Oh i don't know why we already said ten no early in the game and haiti's the patriots the bucks get to eliminate right tonight there you. That's what it was when we already discussed so. In ten games thirty eight secs minka fitzpatrick and terrel. Edmonds picked off to peace touchdown to tie two picks a piece giving pittsburgh. Nfl yesterday. pittsburgh's got twenty-one takeaways. There the nfl best the three points allowed to jacksonville. Were also low. So basically what we're saying so nobody's pitched a shutout this year this year yet. Think about that right. Is anybody pitcher shutout yet. If they said a season low maybe if it was at a season low it had to be a season low. He's talking about. Mvp for the league so three points is the lowest score. Nobody's pitch to shut out in the nfl this year. I don't think so somebody did yesterday. Right twenty nothing was. The detroit was an score scoreless yesterday. Go then this was so detroit is actually by carolina. Beat them twenty nothing. Yeah we had any other shutouts in the league. But that for pittsburgh's been there season-low they yielded three points to jacksonville jacksonville but thirty eight sacks and ten games man. Pretty impressive yeah. So what's that average out to almost four game four game. They traded for fitzpatrick. And everyone's out very good and he's been amazing for him and they have they have people can come at you from anywhere. They have great. Dvd's men's is physically frigging nasty. Now now. mak- fitzpatrick likes to get nosy. But i'll tell you what he gets nosy and pick memory. he'll squat. Pick a ball off if you staring them down. He between the they may have the best. I'm trying to think of safety combo in the league. Is there better right now. You know this is the this is kind of cam and earl. Thomas right of the of the current. Nfl fly around ball. Hawks knock in the mouth play physical. So impressive steelers. Defense of what. We're spending time all about offenses. We talk about quarterbacks in this league the pittsburgh steelers defense is obviously giving them something to think about so the steelers also by the way. Have a guys in sixty seven consecutive games. Yeah it was like ten years or something like that well tampa. Bay's good teams back with sap and and That group derrick brooks in that group. Yeah that was it's been Matching league-record owned by the buccaneer. So yeah it's been a long time And i think it was that group with With with brooks and and barber and sapling that the group and booger mcfarland wasn't the last time somebody got a sack and what's at sixty nine. Straight games is what it was pretty amazing man this kind of thrown through. Oh by the way. Pet home says just two turnovers the entire season two last night. Both against the raiders. Not turn been clean. Been clean in every other team other stupid for a guy who throws that much and does all the wild things. Yeah practically a couple of nights still that were like tipped and you know one go in and out of somebody's hand but hey you're always gonna ask him to take those chances. Will you know it's gonna happen in one year he's gonna throw twelve. It's going to be because some of those balls by the defense are caught. But you smoke them if you've got him right and he's got him right now he's frigging crushing it. Turn the ball over. Twice to the raiders and other than that every single games have been clean. When i say clean meaning even though it might have been ball was not caught by the defense. It's still clean because in stats. It says zero turnovers. Don't turn the ball over you win. A lot of football games man fan. It turned it over twice last night. Guess what they may not want out one thirty five to forty times like the high risk always in there now. They throw a lot of screens to take away the risk that they take a lot of high risk running deep over routes and i mean he'll take some shots now they tell you they take some shots so some of these. Statistics are named the stats. We named the rookie of the year. The pittsburgh steelers can't say chief's new orleans saints the overwhelming. Yeah at the top. The best of the best of what they're doing and there are certain categories this year. I guess there is no mystery. Certain stats do bear out turnovers touchdown passes protect the football and play some defense with defense. When you're when your offense is you're better than your offense and your offense a super bowl worthy meaning. The pittsburgh steelers pretty impressive sports. Talk seven hundred rockets. Talk next have they. Are they better right now than they were last year on paper considering their franchise today with their with their deal this past weekend. We'll talk sports. Seven hundred more. Sean sounds very on sports. Talk seven where astros in rockets play and real time since talk. We are sportstalk. Seven ninety seven three two one two five seven nine hundred the poll question. The big ones up are the. Who's the offense rookie of the year. That's that's number one rookie of the year. And i think a lot of people believe is just in her but but we got some good. It's going to be a bummer. 'cause claypool what robinson running basil robinson running back to jacksonville rookie undrafted kicked but this year we know on the jeffersons a monster we talked about claypool berle's playing great but herbert's herbert's guy And we're loaded with really good players. Man look really really good players young players that are getting it quickly in the league so go to sports seven ninety on our twitter and share it and give yourself vote on their if i asked you guys now with without even like going over stats and you guys know the roster we all do yeah starting now in the last season beginning of the season which was about a week ago a better roster on paper yes why. They've added something that they're not going to have to play small. And i think that it can. Yeah with the starting lineup. Yeah it was a cool experiment to go to that extreme. I do think that it wasn't necessarily what they always wanted to do that. A lot of it was luxury tax driven with getting rid of capello's contract now. I don't think there's any you're thinking that he's in atlanta right. Yeah you'd think he sings acapella now. I don't think so you don't have the segment. Thicky sings acapella christmas carols. You never know do you know. Do you think people know what acapella means. I hope they do. Yeah i would think they do. What do you think josh. You think they do your age acapella me. Yeah because there's some like artists l. occupy over like to be great occupy exactly so certain order now to have decent voices. They'll do acapella songs. I think with some good harmonize with it and stuff. all right. so. I i digress. Since we're not play small ball or singing acapella but this new the new edition. You can play small ball. If necessary given stephen silas probably the tools that he wants clearly as having some guy. That's at least big enough to be a center at six foot ten right but has this the floor spacing just had out there with with dallas with their big men as well you know. They switched off. They switched off. Covington that salary and the you know there's there might be financial motivation behind that. But they also bring in sterling brown like they've brought in veteran wings that can defend and like. I think that they've they're they've been a lateral move in terms of defense defense overall but they've gotten better with would because he's versatile and i think fits what they do very well it is. This is what today center for the most part is and he's like i'm not saying he's not a he's been coming into. Run the court. Yeah you can play. You can pop out on the perimeter and knock down a three. You could still go in and get rebounds rim defend a little physical enough to handle a bigger body. Because he's what i think he's six ten six ten. So i mean but but this is just think about stephen silas a week ago guys now he may know more than we did but on the surface it looked like damn. What are we going to do with this guy. This is what i welcome to. This guy's live covington. we just trade. Then we turn around and move a reason and we're trying to and people are getting first round picks and we don't have one this year and now all the sudden now. They're talking about hard and harm watts watts. I ain't got a chance to talk with. I haven't got a chance to sit down and run. One does dial up one play for him. This is the basketball season so at least it appears right. Now that the rockets are committed to james and russ and russ. They've always been committed but to having this roster. That's unless some blockbuster thank comes down. It sure doesn't appear at least the buzzer doesn't seem as loud as it was a week ago and they still have the ability to go young. If they need you christian woods twenty four. They still play. Yeah feels like lot longer. It'll be efficient like what next week or it's a sign and trade with reasons stuff. I think he could be official tuesday or whatever maybe it is. It's three years forty million bucks to me it just i. I think that their goal like everybody kept saying was to show james. They're committed to going for this as they are and they're going to me. It showed the commitment to retooling the roster and the roster does need a retooling to an extent and even if it's just a couple of pieces here and there y- running back the exact same team. That's been here for the last couple of years was not going to get you anywhere so it needed a different look afresh. Look to it and done that. They also got a center that fits better to what they do by still by not having to go to somebody six seven. Does that make sense. Yeah so you get rid of capella away. You play small ball like you said whether it's luxury tax money whatever it is but then go out and get christian would now. He comes in kind of gives you what you'd liking your center. You're not gonna. You're not going to be down there catching alley duck every time. But he gives you more versatility. And he can't course. Yes todd game cappella ain't popping out giving you a three ball right. No capellas game was strictly at the rim. That's exists it. This is a guy that is not that something. We've been screaming for the rockets to have with a big man for a very long time to hopefully he continues to a sin like he has been for the last year and a half in the nba. his he's becoming based on the last two years ways played a very real option for a team. Like he can be a fifteen points per night guy if you need him to be that clearly and if i got fifteen points tonight from him and seven rebounds eight rebounds. I'm feeling great all my gosh that tell that right there improves the team. I know hardens gonna give me. I would assume russ is going to give me. Typical rush play harden last year ran talking guy that was twenty seven points a game and a and fifty well over fifty percent from the field. That's good and we know russ is what he is. He's a explosive talent. That can give you a triple double at times. It's going to get a little out of hand on his game. That's just him is. That's okay but i'll tell you what he's better than a lot of options out there in this league. He's i mean he's not gonna shoot the three ball very well every now and then he's going to get carried away and fire. We know who he is right. Yeah we know who harden has now. I'm anxious to see what they do on the defensive. I'm ecstasy the commitment. What they do as far as the on the ball off the ball between the two of them and still need some shooting. Of course hit it. Of course they do but they upgraded the shooting at the center position. I think a key to this as well with the would signing specifically he was very coveted by all the contenders coveted. No he is. He has died teed up. Hey why don't you just stick a big old softball. Who's right there. But i mean he. He had he had great teams looking. I think shocked. A lot of people. Any reminded me that okay. He went to the rockets with all that crap going on and he had a bunch of great teams looking to get him any picked the rockets without even the first bit was the first night the first with the next day i remember the first time in the morning line following days when the decision was made correct he picked the rockets. That should tell you what you need to know. That harden has some influence to that and they're not changing the team they're going they're going forward with this with this roster and i mean he's if you trade russ. I don't think he could be your second best player on a competing team. You're talking about would you know he's not but as a third guy he's a great third option a half and at times maybe even fourth option. That's fine but you're right. He's not going to be the second option but right now you don't need him to be. You don't need them to be but every now and then he busts out and get you twenty two and twelve. I'll take it. He'll when you when you guys are struggling. Yeah i would agree with both of you guys. I think this is an upgrade on paper. Today i mean as we sit today now you know who knows what will happen four days from now but it doesn't. It seem that the commitment is that we are gonna lineup on the twenty second with james and russ in a uniform. Yeah they definitely look like they wanna still try and compete in at least be a contender. The lakers obviously look better. But if know the lakers messed around with not upgrading their roster have they. They have and isn't going to wait till after thanksgiving to make this decision say tonight read where he said. I'm going to wait. he's late. it's just a matter of. I mean it's just no rush for him shorter deal or like four year deal and i think he's said he's gonna take his time out no exactly the timeframe but i thought. He said he hopes thanksgiving. I thought he did. And that's fine. I mean listen that roster spots not gonna be open so he's getting paid interesting weekend to the lakers. I mean they all the they get mark assault but they trade javale mcgee. The cavs hip. Dwight says he's coming back. Deletes it and then ends up with darryl and the sixers on a minimum deal after clapping about. I don't want to be underpaid anymore. And he's here's your vet minimum because that's what you're worth right. You don't wanna but doesn't mean you're going to get what you want. That doesn't usually work that way and didn't vanfleet state in toronto right. Hey got paid and deserved it. Been very consistent close to charlotte. I listened to for four and a buck. Twenty everybody mocking gordon hayward for opting out of the thirty four dude he did just fine. He lost thirty million bucks this year. Four million bucks this year my god. He's getting one hundred twenty four college football all of a sudden it pops up. You know breaking news across the screen and gordon aside from clemson but it just may might even the night before watching t. And also gordon hayward by the way for four years of buck twenty. I'm like you. Yeah you turn down thirty four mil. There's a reason about a whole bunch more good player but he has been twice completely overpaid. And guess what but remember. You're only overpaid if somebody's mind. Because you're which you can negotiate guys made one hundred eighteen million bucks already. Don't hate him for about to make a whole bunch more a buck. Twenty plus for four years. Good for gordon hayward good for all those guys agent yep you think he's missed one hundred eleven regular season game since he went to the celtics and thirty one playoff games and he got more this time around than he did in two thousand seventeen. Yeah they like his. He's with mike right. Is within charlotte right then. That where he signed jordan. I met i call mike. Because you know we're tight. I was going to say i'm jay. Jason tatum with the celtics got is extension. Mitchell got his extension. Those guys getting paid this mitchell. Got the mac with a chance to make a lot more if he's all pro obviously got the maximum jason tatum. Jason tatum deserves to be paid. It's a hell of a player. Those two guys are legit candidates for the next decade and both trying to be all nba type of players. And they're really. I mean you're talking about and i have no problem with either one of those guys. Getting paid had no problem with fred. Vanvleet getting paid at all hayward maybe overpaid but he got it so good for him. Let's see if they can bring out the best in him and he can. Sticky for him is just stay healthy. Stay southeast pretty good. He's a really good player. So we'll see rockets roster apparently it all three of us looks a little bit better than it ended with and we'll see how that plays out because we don't have to wait long. We're a month away from from t- ended up and run it. What do you like to say. Running it back. We're done with that slogan it's time to move on how 'bout that hashtag. Let's move on hashtag new era there. You go sportstalk seven ninety. This is sports. Talk seven ninety home of the rockets and the best lineup in. Houston's no back to sean salisbury.

I went and watched a the new liam neeson movie the honest thief at the theater on saturday. Friday friday. good movie good movie trailers or anything for anything recently. Spent a weird man. I'm going to see the fatman this week. Which is the mel gibson gets it but it. It's a dark comedy you know. It's almost like something that what's crazy a. What's the one with john. Travolta and samuel jackson pulp pulp. Fiction yet feels kind like debt. Feel about it yeah. so i'm i'm lucky but i was in the theater that yes you have pulp fiction. Who hasn't right matter what took awhile but you did it. Take you saw a good movie. That was actually a spark and john. Travolta's comeback movie right. There was part of his. You see you've seen travolta but there's a time when travolta like robert downey junior. He didn't see him much. And then boom. They have certain certain roles sparked him back with it so house at the movie. So i'm gonna go see fatman this week to because i want to see this mel gibson in this dark comedy which will be pretty cool but so. Do you have one josh tradition. Unlike any other we friends ahsley. It's usually just coming to throw a football around because the football. Tv sometime before we eat or even after just kinda pins. Do you guys still do turkey. Day games never ever going through the football around but we never. We never played we grow. We didn't have like okay so i was thirty. We did it. I had cousins. That weren't very good at sports. Like i was the best. But i was the best one at sports in the family. My brother was probably next but my older cousin too big. He was good at sports but he was too big to play with us. He would play basketball so he could just because he's nine years older than us. He whipper ass my other cousins. They were terrible sports. We we would have epic thanksgiving was reserved for that turkey and be pre football on tv. Didn't matter if it was rain or shine. It was epic com- co- competitiveness among couple different fan. We get after it. I'm talking about. You know you knees bloodied get after. It gained play and a whole lot of touch football on those thanksgiving day games not anti daughters. Yeah and then. Christmas day was met for when you go to the gym. We'd all because you get the new basketball shoes awe. We got in the afternoon during the play in the ball gym. But i was always the same. Wars always worried about it. I don't want to get him nasty. The first like. I've got my first real pair basketball shoes that i wanted when i was in the seventh grade. I got the t max okay. Because he got traded and there were these bec- space moon boot. Look and things. They were black. They had this weird thing that you popped on the back that you turn. Because they didn't know now adidas okay and they they they back writing that day that twister tight twist yet but those were like expensive like two hundred something bucks. My mom and dad had to go to like different footlockers until they could find because at that time i was wearing a size thirty tonight and they found that but i was like i didn't want to. I wanted to wear say ain't bright. You want to save them outside really wouldn't do. No we had a. We didn't play outside. We had a a church. We for church. We have somebody who knew somebody or my brother would have and the summer they live in key to it though so we'd go in there on christmas day other than sunday. You weren't allowed to go in there on sunday if it fell sunday right. Yeah but if. Christmas followed a saturday or any other day of the week. We'd go in there. It was like after christmas. After midday games. This was before the nba started all their years ago before they did. They're all these. Tv channels had five nba games. We go create and we'd play from about five seven four to six thirty seven hundred and do it was. I mean it'd be. You just knew christmas at this time. Every christmas the church gym and also nba point of course in the nets. Were all perfect. Yeah and instead. Oh i would have never liked you or i would have. I saved the bad shoes for the outdoor ball stuff on the on the nets. Tear your hand. No no but i'm with you hundred percent. Art thanksgiving day tradition. I would say it just.

The Texans Lose Again, Texans keeping Crennel for 2021, does Harden want to go to Brooklyn, Leadership in sports

"Then we got sean. Puerto time french very this. Is the sean salisbury. Show fourth and goal. It's the quarterback city not gonna make it and it was byles jared the man of the moment already with a sack of four goals stop. And here's the other way the touchdown browns i the game. What's it with a pump. Fake and a pass caught top and farrell brow on a difficult catch because he had a teammate. Right in the neighborhood here is trump bone outside one out of bounds. And he does it. He may go all the way he does. Don't flags or down and cia. He ran out of bounds. Yard line. there you have it. That's the fox. Call a dick stockton on a game call yesterday longtime broadcaster one of the smartest and unselfish football players in the league. Nick chubb you were. There won't be five would have done that. I'm just telling you that is just. Here's why you do it. You say well there's only fifty seconds to go. What if all the sudden they returned the kick for a touchdown and watts. I know that's a big. What if and watson the a on side kick it and get it and he goes all kyle. Murray deandre hopkins. Oh yeah yeah. And then the trade him for a second round. Pick maybe after that. That's what they do right now. I just call somebody up. And say we'll give you the andre hopkins first second round pick. I'm sure everybody would jump at it because well. That wasn't a stupid move aside from the khalil mack. Somebody reminded me of yeah. It's the steel of the decade by by no doubt by by that hopkins straight and he continues to validate it. But that's neither here nor there. What is here is that. This team's not very smart a lot of times. I don't know why the i know. Romeo cornell decided to go for it. That's tim kelly's call bad. Call you get to sean. Deshaun watson you that to taste hiller cam newton between the tackles you get on the edge with watson. Give him a run pass option. If you're going to go for it three points to look nice though at that. Time fairbairn missed the defense again. Two hundred plus yards rushing today. I know the weather was bad. I mean between the two running backs i told you. This was the best one two punch always. Definitely that goods. Insa hold him down. Hold him down. The problem is we. Don't play thirty minute game now. We actually play sixty minute games and their season is i mean. I know that people. I guarantee that people that didn't wanna call in or listen is still thought to and six after watching indianapolis. Take tennessee that the texans had a legitimate shot on fat lady. Sing right there. There's what goes on. Here's a problem and it's everybody on the team everybody. They're talking about everybody. The defensive coordinator obviously doesn't have enough players or scheme wise to overcome the players. He has the players. Just don't make enough place and they are you like i've told you a million times. I can overcome some finesse. Mistakes being at a position or a dropped ball. I can eventually overcome that. Hope the teach drop ball out of a guy. I can't overcome just getting mauled. Can't either got. Here's why one game i can. It's the weeks that's exactly right and getting mauled to the standpoint too. I mean think the broken tackles the guy being ramped up than getting away which the constant and then when they are. There's a pile pile moved when a nine yard. You guys are trying to tackle them around his shoulder pads really and the guy's got the tree trunks for tree trunks for legs religious still grinding it. You can't fix in a season when it's like sticking a lightweight boxer at about a buck fifty bucks while they're even lighter than that the featherweight boxer to by five box tyson. It as best that. That's what it looks like. Every week is that they walk into a ring and get pummeled and physically manhandled. Were you know going in. We're lost by three. Yes i felt like. They didn't it though. Yeah but here's the typical. Texans start slow and that includes the quarterback. I promise you when they got the ball back when they were down ten. You know what i said. You taken down score. They will score a touchdown and tease you and keep it close and maybe get an opportunity on the last drive to win. Well obviously chubb. You know major hammered that one into the ground and smart football. Play that you don't let the shawn watson. Even get his hands on the football brilliant not unselfish it. A pity misers. What nick chubb is and what most football player should be the fact that he understood the game situation some nowhere to go out of bounds. They're told brian play half right. Don't don't you dare go in. Stay inbounds i mean. Don't you dare go out about slot. get down well. Not only is he. Take it to the house but instead of taking it literally the house decides i'll stop here. They have no timeouts kneel down twice ballgame over smart football heaps touchdown. Right things matt right. of course. it doesn't incentives. But i love that's brilliant understanding of and you know what they're six and three i think seven hundred sixty three right when he fourteen which they ended up losing seven and going into the game yesterday. They were the final playoff team going in and now they're tied with the baltimore ravens although the ravens beat them but that that's where it's at that divisions over by the way dealers are up three games. You catch them with seven games to go not going to happen. And they quite frankly still haven't played their best football offensively. Ben get done but it's not real pretty right now right and they still won and they hammered. You know what they do. Get after the quarterback on the other team the pittsburgh steelers. But it's just you know here's the set. The sad part you know going in there are certain things going into a game. The you still like. Well how's lamarcus play against new england in inclement weather which cam showing up. I mean you can go around the league jacksonville. Even hung in there against green bay right real good and so you know going into this and there's one thing i know for a fact it's going to happen every week. They're going to get destroyed in the run game. Was people trying to say oh. They were the first half. What change when it comes to run the football. I feel like people have lost this. It's wearing the defense down. Those three yards become five and then they get more opportunities to busting second coming eight nine yards left and right. Yeah somebody tell me again. How that first half mattered in the course of a sixty like. I said we don't quit. Play and thirty minutes and they just. They're either way to light in the ass. They don't know how to do it. All comes down. And they don't tackle. They're out of position. The other guys just better than they are right. Every team they'd lined up against outside of jacksonville has been better than them and they even run the football well and they're free. They gain the texans the last man just so it is. You guys can sit there. You can hold all the optimism. Can't 'cause i got zero in two thousand twenty. There is no optimism for two thousand twelve. Not optimism is get out healthy. I'll see in twenty twenty one in about fifteen or eighteen of gone. We've gotta make wholesale changes which leads to this so we can get into all we want you listen. They start way too slow. Which was bill. O'brien been here. And i'm not defending him. Because what i saw hopkins make the trade still makes me want to throw up in my mouth. Okay when i see him make the catch and thinking about trade in a lot of things. So i don't have any problem with the had to move on from bill. One hundred percent agree. But i can tell you this. What bill did was stupid. When romeo does it aggressive. When did just when you get the instant benefit of ryan gone where you're right when somebody else misses a tackle. It's bill's fault win. The player misses a tackle under romeo and the players fault. Here and and romeo's i get it nice guide and a hell of a football coach but bill is created that now that on fourth the two. Can you imagine what we'd be saying today if that was the play. Call brian. yes yes absolutely. Here's what's funny. It's tim kelly. Who made the call. But when bill. O'brien let's tim. Kelly make the call. They still blame that. Call on bill. O'brien so forth of tuna. Just everything they do. And i see this is dna problems. Now they're starts. Everything's creeped every single week every single week. They do not know how to come out of a locker room playing football last week. Was their first touchdown drive. This is only the fifth times then. Wrote down and then they can't keep it for three or four series. They believe that football right at that time. That's a max. Yes max supply and that's one half football one side of the ball usually so it. Just listen it's a bummer. Going in when you know that the guy that you're playing against every week kicks your fast physically about every week every week which leads me to this. Now see guys. Coincidences don't usually exist. Once in a while they do in life once in a while. Romeo cornell's in being considered according to rappaport and ian rapoport dialed and he's our guest on wednesday. We'll talk to him about it about the romeo cornell stuff seriously considered for the head coaching job next year and jack easterby is now and that's part of it i read as well easterby also trying to align himself in position to be the full time you go ahead and do all these things you go ahead and see what that stadium. You actually see that stadium. Be empty overdue. Yeah so when you listen to jamie roots the president of the team the other day saying what he said basically telling you that they're only worried about making money and they normally do they normally do so. I'm just telling you. I love romeo cornell. He cannot be the head coach moving on and if some of these decisions don't tell you that it's almost to the point where romeo's trying to go completely different than bill to the point of. We're going to be no matter what we're going to go. We're going to do aggressive when needed not aggressive win needed and listen. I romeo cornell hall of fame defensive coordinator. I do but it's time to move forward and i have not listened if i thought romeo cornell is the best guy i don't care that he's in his seventies i. It doesn't bother as being head coach. Right right he just not this date. Now it's time and what they're going to do if they do that. They're going to pass on a bunch of young studs or middle or older. Says i don't get that. Are that are worthy of this more deserving of points this position that's he's been been there done that and it makes me wonder if there's somebody that they're easterby once that has a. That's very large this season. That may be not enlarge next season and that could be the delay as well. If it's just these guys should be sitting around waiting for coach. We'll come back into hell. No 'cause you'll miss out on three great ones right now and the guy can't sit. He's pretty good. Yeah there's a few out bryan bryan nabil's a great job of it's not for them by by the way he calls place for buffalo. Josh phenomenal so we will discuss. And i can tell you this. The quite worried about south carolina's said screw this or paying a fifteen million dollar will champ and we are moving on which means they're call on liberty up and saying hey free we want you. We would love you to be our court our head coach next year. And we'll get that sign now. Finish out year with liberty. We'll see in about. Oh a month and a half so we'll come back and discuss these texas. Listen it's not a good team that i've got my my glass half full glasses just done gone empty on the texans because when you get punched in the mouth and can't respond in the run game that's only on you and everybody vote offensively. They i don't care about the weather yesterday. Cleveland had to deal with it to we discussed go on the week. They made more plays than you did it. Sports talk seven. Ninety f- mice mccullers junior of houston astros. You're listening to sean salisbury. On sports talk seven nine lance mccullers. How about the performance your home for houston. Astros baseball. Every single ross. Shortly after watch. Film seed novak. Jj at a thrill at a very minimal minimalist at its best understand. Everybody's always looking for him to be the explanation guy. No he should not. That's my point. He absolutely should not have to be the explanation guy but they wanna make him that and unfortunately i know he's a he's He's is competitive. Is you're fine. So i'm sure it drives him nuts. You can tell. He's fed up. And as i was telling michael in the break. You could really tell that he was just overall this. Because even with these short answers. I would have to bump the audio a lot. Because he was very much like they're pressuring spellcheck style wasn't saying it out loud. Well let's hear what the shawn watson on twenty two say about the frustration of this loss which gets him to two and seven and the bags. they're starting to clean their golf clubs and stick him in their trunk. In my opinion every frustrated draws a holiday every losses i rating but you gotta take it on and and go back to the drawing board and just try to get ready for patriots sweet. And that's all we can do is just keep comport and Learn from the mistakes and learn from you know missed opportunities and try to get back to the basis and get details of new england And try to focus on that one itself the lose especially in his lead Have opportunities and we didn't capitalize high could put that on a perpetual real every week. Someone mean i. I don't care about much about the answer is not something i want to see your name. Come up there and be pissed. Yes he. he's not yes just doesn't sound like yes and i just want not here a little bit of in your chest and i know when people say well. That's the leadership you just keep moving forward. No sometimes leadership you've got. I hate to say it. Sometimes later she got to look in the rear view mirror and say. Why are we doing this. Because when he said it's the same thing about missed opportunities. We just gotta go back to the drawing but had but it's the problem is incorrect. They don't correct the mistakes. That's my problem not about a team. Yeah it's the same thing every week they'll make a few big plays in a game. They don't know how to sustain series after series on either side of the football. And i'm convinced that this is one thing that this kid is a such a good player in watson he'd just is but i'm gonna tell you one thing that i'm convinced now that he's never going to learn. I'm sorry to say he's just not the you know. There are certain things that you guys are going to get better at certain things. They're just not gonna learn what's his he will never thought he will. He will take a sack before he'll throw the ball away. Yeah and here's why once again and it happens every single week and you gotta say what am i willing to sacrifice again safety and i'm gonna tell you what this team does way too much to. They missed free. Runners were either miss a hot reader aside adjustment or somebody misses a block on a regular basis on a regular basis every week. It's something and unless we're in the room. No well which way were they slide in the line of protection is that guy or is that back that missed. His block was a hot. Read to sean. Spicer throw happens. All the time i would blitz these guys all the time but the problem is one time guy comes in and hits watson hard from secondary blitz. He bounces off a player and then go scramble and make a play right or throw it out about or get two yards aikido. You the mall you know he does. The problem is that when he makes those. There's this built in thing. That says i can make every one of those right and there was a couple of pass rushes and i thought that the cleveland did a great job. Were they if you notice from the end zone camera they gave you know gap to slide through. And that's how you got to be disciplined with a guy like watson you've got state you're outside arms free for some inside and a lot of times guys force them in size in two guys will be in one gap and they'll be where can get skinny and a whole and slide through it and then go. The browns did a good job a couple of times yesterday. That didn't happen. But every game he steps out of guaranteed sack and goes and makes five yards a big play a completion cancel why they're averaging one eight point eight yards or somewhere per attempt going into the last couple of weeks where he was number one in the league. I don't know if that extended it yesterday. But he was most of the season. So i don't want coach out aggressiveness. But there guys. There's gotta come a time when you're battling guys you just got to throw it away and you're not always going to be able to do that. I mean yesterday there was a play where he i think it was a read option or just a fake the hand off garib bid on it hard. He looked like he had the easy. I down but because geared athletic he had to everything he could just to get that first down once again got to be having night. He's going to be having nightmares. Yeah scared because they guys This full blown very very athletic. Fast running quarterback myles garrett another five-year yards myles. Garrett chases him down. Yeah that's a defensive end. Who is got defensive player of the year written all over not just once but multiple times in this league if his hunger factor stays the same as it's been and they continue to play well but so does shawn. That's one thing i i just. I don't want to coach him but at some point time guys there's got to be a point worry says not today son i gotta throw it away here and that when people say well that doesn't make yes it does that is the next evolution of a great as much as you guys. Don't some people. Literature watch aaron rodgers. All all the time has no problem. Throw new plays lose. Yes i listen. I i got to take the l on this so second. Ten seconds sixteen. Then what happens is you get eight yards on second down and then they blitz you and you gotta throw hot and you catch it for a six yard gain its fourth and two and you're at midfield. Now you gotta decide. Do we go for it. Give them short field. Do we punit right that. And that's the that's how coordinators think and it just somehow some way he has got to. He has got to convince this team or himself. They've got to come out of the locker room faster on a content. They don't man they they. They lalla gag. Which is a word you'd use for a three year old right. They lolly gagging just kind of just. It's like a win. You guys gonna win like we're standing around waiting for you to pat him on the butt until yes yes playing wakeup call or always waiting for somebody else to make a play and get green bay packers every single game when they come out locker go down score and even if they have a series of two or they don't they struggle after that and they struggled at times yesterday at least they know they got seven on the board. Now okay. we're in it. You scored a touchdown. Now it's time instead of we're in the chase mode so they always keep it around the only game. They couldn't do that for the most and they actually did do it against tampa bay and then the rest of the game tampa bay shot him down right. And a buccaneers reared their hadn't played back to the thank goodness after that piss game. They played a week ago. They scouted they look like a playoff team tiny. Hey i'm gonna put a book right after humiliated now. You look at the nfc. We'll get back there. But the i know how good seattle seattle's defense going to keep them out suitable and it's true in my out meeting. They might be struggling to win the division hustle. Wilson doesn't have an. mvp for they lose. It cannot win out of the mvp theme and trying to overcome a bad defense becomes a problem and you look at them. Green bay was pushed to the brink. I still think they're pretty good. 'cause rogers and they can run the ball and he makes big plays and davante adams. Who's good but they're not to the point where you think they could beat the first round of the playoffs right. If new orleans roles in there let's just say or tampa goes in there and brady has one of those games. They could beat them. New orleans quarterback banged up forty niners backup quarterback hung around for a minute. Then new orleans kicked into gear and their defense pretty good to the tampa bay up and down seattle up and down rams up and down. Arizona plays hermione the division leader. I know which is amazing so as you look not cardinals fan. Why would let's do it. I mean i like golf course lines. Excuse me their quarterback awesome. So here though. I don't know we try and try and try not that. They're listening to us. But i try to decipher. How how do we get them going. How do they come out of the locker room and then it just becomes a simple fact that coaches motivational speeches. Don't mean squat. When it comes that you've got a motorbike yourself. What about canopy on as they're running out poke each of them the ass cannell from i. You know what they're either gonna do to. They're either going to respond or stay of the locker room. And i'm not sure which what it'd be right now. So it's so frustrating for me to watch and then you just watch them get get in the second hand. The fourth quarter every single snap new cleveland. Browns were running and you still could not stop them. Yeah i mean the passing attempts late in the game in the fourth quarter. I don't know what they had. They couldn't have thrown the ball five times in the fourth quarter. Unless unless i watched every play and maybe i'm over but handed off hand off hand off hand off ham and they gashed them. Mightily maybe it was the last ten minutes instead of the entire fifteen minutes but they knew it and you knew that they were trying to kill this thing. Today made no secret. I believe the only pass i can remember. Is that pastor kareem hunt. I believe it was in the fourth quarter that it was behind him and he couldn't get the first down in riotous remember three passes in fourth quarter and i watched the whole game and i will watch it again just to make sure that i didn't miss someone. Well they were close. I swear to you what it was three to nothing. You said ballgame. I did. I told us three to nothing. I thought you know what they're not win this game. How when do you say you're down. The game is almost outta reach. Which is strange. And i don't usually think like that it's just mayfield to pass attempts to right and they ran. It ran it. You knew they were going to run it and you still couldn't stop minister run it it run it run it. You still couldn't stop him so it just tells you. Listen you might want to look forward to it. And i'm not a glass half empty guy but i am glass half empty got. It's a matter of fact it's bone-dry when it comes to the texans this year two and seven no shot and you just happen to be catching the patriots. Well they had sixteen rushing attempts in the fourth quarter just happened to catch them when they're looking cute again when they're playing good. Yeah all right. Sportstalk seventy coming right back. We'll put up the big one today and james. It seems there's a feel. I don't know that hardens dot com. Be here next. Year i did. This is gaining momentum. The question anger and where a lot of talk got a lot of talk about a lot of texas teams. Here we'll discuss is any of it. Good sports talk seven ninety. There's a lot happening. And he's got a lot to say about his. Sean salisbury continues on seven ninety question. Just one question plant. One question is the big one a big question of the day. On the sean salisbury. Show all right the big one real simple which we heard over the weekend could happen which to me is just and it had nothing to do with romeo cornell because he's a good guy and a hell of a football coach has defensive coordinator and i think players like him and he respected around the league. But it's time to find the new head coach here just that simple will romeo cornell b. the texans head coach and twenty twenty one as the talk grows which would mean that jack easterby and all this korn ferry talk to jack. Easterby would position himself to be the general manager. Yeah this is all this. All smells a play right not. Just you're also going to hire korn korn-ferry group and you've wasted your money or do you get like some sort of voucher to come back later. How's that work like store credit. That's a half million we're gonna pay or whatever they come back because fire romeo cornell or jack has position it to the point where. I'm your best candidate so were paying you to hire me. I have no idea you know what i want to ask. Jack easterby i do. I laid in bed in this honest to god truth. This is so pathetic that i'm actually thinking of these guys. I mean they'll do that bed last night when they traded hopkins. I told you that the night. After that i did not sleep. I was here the next morning at like two thirty in the morning. Can't get sleep right. I'm laying in bed. And i'm thinking i want to interview him. Like you know how they have. The exclusive barbara walters. I wanna be that guy. Because here's what i wanna know. I wanna look at jackie's to be in the face. And i want to say if you were the owner. Would you hire you. Exempts your resume looking as your resume worthy of being the general manager and i want him to look me in the face. Say yeah and i'm back up with one simple question. why yes. it's real easy and if somebody doesn't asking that question that gets around him shame on you. Show shame on this town. If we don't ask him any time he wants to come on and it won't be five. I listen. i don't know jack. That whatever i say that they jack about anything you know jack jack easterby right but i do. I would love to be the guy. Sit down because i mean listen. I won't be rude. But i will pepper him with the that. The what is your qualification. Neighbor his answer. Oh yeah calling his qualification to interview him see high. I know what you're saying. Is that what you meant by qualification interview. Ms probably bigger than his qualification to say. I'm the general manager. Fox so i just. I do love this part of the article yesterday. They're going to high if they did high behind this. This is this tells you all you need to know about them. Though yeah rap was a little bit little bit concerned about jack last week when he came on like. I don't know sean yeah. I don't know why he's got someone cornell now. The interim coach is a well respected longtime defensive coordinator who has been a head coach in the past for texas. He could serve as a stopgap coach. Josh manson mentioned earlier allowing the team to get twenty twenty one with some stability and pushing their true coaching. Search the following offseason with kobe nineteen restrictions and allow for traditional in person search. No one knows what the country will be like in january but flying around the country interviewing several candidates maybe challenging even on private planes. It's possible that coaching candidates will be interviewed on zoom. That means a team could invest thirty or forty million dollars and a head coach. They'd never met no. I'm sorry i guess what you mentioned. Private jets your private jet can get you wherever you want and not be worried about copen. You're asking an interview anybody in person. Sorry we're watching. People fly everywhere. Now you can get onto the implying you're gonna in the jet and bring the person to houston. We've watched bob mcnair do it. Ed reads elast. Let let me let me be possible. Let me explain something to what is what is our guy. Clay travis called corolla broke down. That's listen that's i'm not talking about ian. I'm just telling you that. Part of the story i i. I was on a plane. They make you wear masks of this password to a back and forth. I was on a plane. It was full. I got rid of. I stopped full but we can't send a private jet to go interview coach. Listen i'm gonna do. I don't even care if they don't have a private jet. Which i know but i'm saying let's just say at a time they didn't. I'm pretty sure they right. But you can also pro charter one. Or let's just say the old school times when they didn't use to fly coaches on private jets. You said no. You're flying first class. Yeah okay and booze put a mask on. Why are we if you're worried about that. Put a mask on so the world supposed to stop. I love and i get what he's saying but this virtue going to know. Listen eric be enemy. I'm gonna just tell you this. If eric enemy comes out on a private plane and interviews with us in a room he ain't gonna die he gonna be okay. I just i don't know that much. Maybe fao she thinks different. But i think he's going to be okay. The pilots and the private jet pry where. Guess what you get to do. You get to ask eric being if he feels comfortable being enemy and guess what he'll say sure to him. Sure exactly right and sit across the conference room table. And i got news for you. I invested money. I've already done a lot of research. I already know what eric vietnamese about much. I've been doing research. Korn-ferry's four thank you. So i i just i can actually pick up the phone and call up and say andy talked to me about this guy well blah blah blah. I can pick up the phone and talk to. I want also talked to a coach would be enemy was where they didn't have success right. Maybe when he was an assistant one in minnesota assistant and ask how was it. What was and how did was great through this. That's why andy hired him there and he's got that if if coat and i always liked the stopgap bridge the gap to what what what. What are we bridging. The gap too. There's no person that's coming out of retirement or some coordinator that just needs one more year and then now there so we're not going to hire the best player then you can't trade because you know what i'm concerned that brooklyn hasn't done their due diligence and if brooklyn hey also have done a see the guy on tv four million times and played against him but you know what if i'm going to invest that kind of money i gotta make sure that i can interview them without a mask on or with a mask on stop it. Just stop so is going to shut down again. I got a big middle finger for. He'll apparently gonna make texas finding a new head coach but sure it is sure these are the head coaching openings. He walks the new right. Just come in the. We're worried about covid. Brian daboll comes in an interviews from buffalo. As as the head coach. Here or joe brady from carolina. I assure you in the end of the day just like when somebody walks into the office so many. Brian daboll diane during his interview. He's gonna be okay okay. Now if he was sick and weighed four. Twenty and was eighty five. I would actually consider may brian. Maybe this jobs not for you or this interview. He's not okay. So point being an eric b enemy. We have gone so overboard with this. Now we're going to bridge twenty twenty two because we're concerned that we can't interview a coach in person. What who what. But you're going to run your players out on the field without a mask on tackling each other and this is what we're going to tell we can't go interview can't take a friday. That's the worst excuse of all time and you can call me up at seven one. Three two one two five seven hundred ninety all you want. tell me you know. We need a bridge because it's too dangerous interview coach for twenty twenty one and i'll laugh at you. I don't think we're going to get thank god. I would hope not good gracious are are you kidding me not only in but that the world actually thinks this we need a bridge that takes you wanna lose money. Don't wanna lose money. Stand pat and have jack easterby as your general manager. No offense and romeo. Cornell's your head coach. The building will be empty and twenty twenty one. That's bridging the gap. All right bridging the gap to broke miss. Okay you wanna be jackson general manager when he's not qualified let him hire general manager and then get qualified over the next decade. Maybe it can be the general manager after he's done being the chaplain so save it. Save this covert. We can't interview bridge the gap. So is that what a six other teams are going to do with all their coach jets can't do it. Man governor cuomo. Let's have a guy come in good. Then you get on a plane flight of the coach. You wanna hire can't do it. We can't do it. Oh okay got you. So we'll just bridge the gap to twenty twenty two and then some smart team will say screw you. I'm higher hidden. Be enemy bridge the gap. You want because my bridge ain't breaking. So i just don't get the whole. You're gonna let good candidates go by force if you do this. Is you being cheap and also having somebody. That's playing a power. I got news for you. Even with colbert. If couldn't interview the enemy. I know i got enough. I'll talk to people. I can hire his ass over the phone. If that's what i wanted to zoom calls. Thank you very much do you that some companies. That's what they're doing they're staying home. They're not even sending their employees being the country but save it. I don't wanna hear that. The covert is too dangerous to interview a coach. Romeo is going to be here for another year right. Say say the they know what's coming next year. Another season like that's the worst virtue signal ever smart respectful. I get all that. But i can't interview a guy because the covid. Oh that's right so nobody told him to. Come walking in and start sneezing on each other. You can interview the guy and and you can do it in person you could put him on a plane people flying every day. Go to the airport happens all the time. I'm sure there's been on a plane a few times. Just frigging stupid trying to even think about that. That cova defected. We can't scout the coach. You may not be able to scout four hundred and fifty players like you want to. You can scout the coach okay in a covert year. You can't yeah yeah you sure. Can sports talk seventy. We'll get to your calls next seven one three two five seven ninety. Yeah can't hire. We need a bridge detroit so we can go four and twelve again sportstalk. Seven ninety footing the logic illogical former. Pro sean salisbury continues to break it down seven ninety going to take your calls. Excuse me. I've got two ton of passion every day but today fired up with this simple thought. That can't hire a coach for twenty twenty two twenty twenty two because of covid save it. That's i don't even wanna hear that. I don't even wanna hear it dumb enough even thinking about shutting the country down but that's for another day the ravens and braunau the same record six and three the dolphins colts. Titans and raiders are also six three in the afc. You wanna talk about finding out. Who's going to be playing at home outside of pittsburgh and kansas city. May when he talked to me. Those are pretty solidified. what they're doing. But the raiders. Making this thing. They're they're trying to hang around right in the afc right into the final right now. All those teams pittsburgh and kansas city clearly separated themselves but the afc talk about an battle. Royal is going to be fun in the nfc. I'm not sure who the best team. Is that a royal at the bottom. Where the texans are currently only and then to arm and makes a good point. Well they win another game this year. Dead serious question danger of not winning another game simply because you're going to get to the point where this frustration and groundhog day stuff starts to affect the locker room. Because i got news for actually if i was on that team. Yeah i'd be thinking to myself. How in the world can you you start. You gotta be careful because what happens is unless you're delusional and maybe this football team is delusional. Because you start to think if you're delusional you start to think to yourself. Well we are still really good but we only give up two hundred yards one hundred. Seventy five hundred yards rushing the week. Be careful because locker. Rooms can't get divided. But i don't think jay would would allow that to happen but i'm telling you. The frustration grows to the point where it is. The texans have opened in most places a point and a half to two and a half point favorites. That's just because the homefield against against new england this next week right. And i'm not stone. Cold the way they play they might not be a favorite again until cincinnati. Right after this one. I'm not sure since. I in cincinnati has cincinnati. Can't beat them. Joe burrow over. There you go. I don't know if they're going to win another game. We'll see brian in richmond. What's up brian. Hey guys I was just saying Thinking you know maybe we should let romeo cornell have another season and see what he can do with the open. One i i for one was never Down with firing bill. O'brien part of that might be. Because i'm a fan. And i want the texans to suck but hey go ahead sign. Romeo kobe stuff for you. Know another five or six years ago dea. Brian don't do that to the locals. Please bud appreciated. He's the titans fan so he wants rubio here. They want actually signed him to a six year deal. Sure i like romeo. I do but this team needs new head coach and general manager with some football acumen. That actually knows the position and qualified. Not i'm not at the head coach. Romeo done it a long time. The general manager. Let's get to ronnie ronnie welcome in thank god extend this a little farther If you're afraid to interview coaches because of the covert and all that kind of stuff. And i worried about the draft anyway. Because i don't know how you're going to evaluate players in places value on players when some players haven't played at all this year. Some college teams aren't going to play a full schedule and extend this on even in the next year. If we don't get everything right because of the covid. But if you can't interview coaches you're afraid to bring people in or go see him. How the hell you going to evaluate players. Good news they don't they don't have any Draft picks until the third arrests. they can do they. Just pick whoever you're right. Thank you for the call. I listen. I'm so that that to me that's built. That's an excuse that i don't need to hear. Oh we can't have. We gotta have romeo here because well can't can't interview a head coach literally sir. Every college and nfl opening will be interviewing people right. Oh blame it on while. Everything's if that's the case in the holden all of us need to do build an underground tunnel and just go live underground and just stop the whole world like we're in like a An alien is about to invade us right. Yeah let's that movie with john goodman member when they went underneath the house like two years ago. Cloverfield that exactly that. So yeah you did. For the first time. And i didn't i like it. Yeah it's over ten or cloverfield cloverfield cloverfield lane. Maybe that's what it feels. Originally it was a remake right. It was like three maker second rise in two thousand sixteen so cloverfield length. I said two years ago. It's been four there. You go so yeah i i put a tenant but i put the ten at the end as opposed to the beginning so can't believe the point is is that the world ain't living like that and if you're afraid to i mean we're we're really going to be a froude stopped deaf because we're afraid that covert might affect us interviewing a head coach. I it would literally the most perfect texans thing ever people like to get on this guy last week saying i'm nothing but negative nothing but negative your client. I'm like how. Can you see anything positive like i don't. I don't want to be negative with them. But they're literally giving you a reason. Every single week in this report is another one. They're going to hide behind. Covid nineteen allowing them to interview head coaches. And they're going to keep around seventy seventy four year old guy who's not going to win games and in the process of not hiring a higher higher coach gbs somebody one of those guys at the front office is going to be a steakhouse with somebody with their family can give. Yeah it's absurd the virtue signaling of all this is absolutely nuts and borderline nutjob stuff okay. So with that in mind and you're one hundred percent right. Mc and the negativity. You know me. Hell i've been trying to ride this half for trying to find the silver lining in all of the needle in the haystack. And after i watched again. Yesterday i'm just i two and seven. There's glass half full now in the off season make change. There's glass fool certain players. Don't misunderstand me. But i'm not worried about the players at the unit gives me two and seven and the way they're losing. It's not like the hanging in the way they're losing his just downright at times humiliating and i know they don't like it. I'm not saying the players like it but they can't fix it defensively. They just can't fix it because they're not good then. We talked about real quick. Jack easterby we in rappaport on. Here's what last wednesday we were talking about the easterby and texans situation. Here's what ian rapoport had. When i- peppered him about questions about this organization attention to the houston texans search for a new head coach. And right now they have interim coach romeo cornell and he is now running the show and the plan have to get to the end of the season and hire new coach. My understanding inside from inside the texans building is that they are strongly considering just keeping romeo krill and through the twenty twenty one would continue to make him the oldest coach in the. Nfl would certainly be an unconventional move. But the reason this is being considered by jackie's and others in the texans brass's because basically do to covid nineteen in person interviews. Maybe difficult to have to give thirty forty million dollars to coach. You've never met. Certainly that is not something that right now is ideal would also allow easterby to remain in charge for a couple of years until they get everything. Settled in houston. That's very end. That's ian rapoport talking this past right about this thing. We'll come back and see what what what he said last week. Talking about jack easterby. And while i love then study aims just doing his reporting the fact that somebody would tell me in this organization that covets going to prevent you from interviewing a head. Coaching candidate it. Only because easterby thank you. You heard him say a couple years. Which means jackets to be the boss. Yeah he gets a lot of wholesale bid fixed then all of a sudden he gets to be the hero. We'll come back and discuss sports talk seven ninety and we'll hear more from ian rapoport in our interview last week with him and save the coal that excuse for interviewing head coaches because guess what front office or anybody else who's suggesting it it doesn't fly here and not one bit okay. And we're coming back in studio next. Come into our studio will interview and fauria. Because we're doing it right now right here all day long for four hours and all day long and four hours and we're still here okay and guess what will interview anybody you need. Because i think. I'm more qualified to interview a head coaching candidate. Then jack easterby is just a hunch sports talk seven ninety seven o'clock hour next men's t clinic guys. Listen nobody.

Shot shots time french hustles. Very this is the sean salisbury. Show our number two alec. Stay right there. We're going to get to your. Here's what i asked. Ian rappaport on our ben. You've already rapport talk about that. They're actually considering. Romeo cornell is head coach. Jack easterby as general manager. Put him in power for a couple of years because well covid might affect interviews. Okay can't meet them in person call. It's not good enough now. There's this listen they don't wanna give thirty to forty million right. If you thought jack easterby being here yes. A thirty million dollars for a coach. He can thirty million bucks to bill. O'brien he didn't serve. I i can. I can interview coach person during covid. Sorry to tell you. I can and would have no problem doing it. And what he actually asked to answer an answer and get up on the board and talked me. I'll say go ahead and take your mask off. I got mine on. It's okay we're gonna be okay. Did you test negative. Yeah okay come on in all good right. Is this situation with jack. Easterby and asked ian rapoport. And if you think that this hasn't been a big bill. O'brien was people weren't maneuvering themselves to put themselves in position of power. You're not yeah okay. So here's what. Here's what ian rappaport said. When asked him about jackie strategies respect around the league. I'm not sure that anybody knows very much about jack. Easterby i mean they know that he was essentially chaplain with the patriots that he got involved in some personnel and was involved in kind of i guess building the team or helping character culture or something like that. I'm not honestly quite sure. I don't mean that as a flight. I'm really just i don't know fact the and your i've no idea And then comes to houston as a character coach. And then we've seen what we've seen. I i think the people who know him. Well are extremely devoted to him. People who don't know him have many many questions about everything that has gone on joosten since he arrives. Well there you have it. Yeah i mean they when to jackie serving hired twenty two thousand eighteen eighteen right around there he was supposed to go to. His contract was not renewed with the patriots. He was supposed to go with bright. What's his face mcdaniels to indianapolis and that didn't happen. It was kind of a rhetorical question. You can't hire a guy two thousand twenty according to what we're hearing because of covid but With the texans but you can fire one. He could run out of the building can go and tell him. Hey by the way how. I got a great idea. Just tweet or text eric. Be enemy or one of these coaches. Texted me like hiram when the season ends you during that interview process and we'll see what happens alex. Welcome in man how you doing. Hey sean good morning fell doing good good Again man. Every time. I call them. And how much loaded informative Dropdown show on this time. But everybody's pretty much the man What exactly is it. That i watched yesterday because i've been watching the gene put up a lot of numbers over the past few weeks and i just had it in the back of my head that this will be the week that we can't get fourteen point the offense and i've been damned if that wasn't what happened. Man and back was that i watched yesterday and another quick question What exactly is it that made us trade the andrey hopkins what what made us better about that. I just saw to go up and try to buy and snack. A ball It in the game that does not just in the game. The one that you needed him to catch you up and caught in a traffic between three and we got two guys on. These team is hard enough on. Mckay balls alex you yeah one hundred percent correct and i know you're being sure answer going power. There's no question because it wasn't about money that's what they they hid behind the money thing board. You know one. Bill didn't like the way deondraye practice didn't like the power yet simple. You can call any way you want the And the khalil mack. Trade or the two were strays of the decade. Although here's the difference like i've heard round picks and the raiders. First round picks and the raiders and the raiders are winning. Yeah so they've found a way to somehow take those picks and apply them and it's working here they've taken no picks and applied nothing and it's not working so there's a big difference when i had some guy when i said hopkins said i thought it was the khalil mack. Trade keep it moving. I said keep moving said. Yeah well those first round pick. They're actually making thanks happening. they're winning. They might not might both be bad traits. But nothing is. It's gonna take time for the hopkins trade. This is worse. Considering what you've got in return. Yes get rid of khalil mack. I was beside myself as a raider fan. But you know what. At least. They've started answering john's got him going in the right direction gruden. Does this team's going the wrong way. And they do. And the raiders first round picks khalil and khalil's a hell of a player but david johnson's now the backup and should be johnson's a better player. We saw that again yesterday and no disrespect to goshen like. But he shouldn't be starting now he just shouldn't and then you've got a team that hopkins continue. What another one hundred plus yards a bunch more cast seven eight catches again yesterday and then the game winner. There's just be away from being a year away or whatever and now they're they're right and so yeah they're like this year's forty niners now whether they get to the super bowl or not another thing but they are first place in the division the quote unquote that was given hopkins was leaked out. There is that he wanted to get paid and he wasn't gonna play unless you got paid yesterday. Showed you while you pay that guy. Whatever he wants because they could have made working their salary cap. They kept saying well. We have to pay a tunsil. We have to pay hopkins watts all the name shirt they could have done all. I got news for you. Had you just said well. We're going to wait. it out. Hopkins played he he he would have played would have been and then still hundred balls disgruntled. Yep okay so that's neither here nor there now because we never get him back. But i will tell you this and alex you make good point the thought they could go out there and i know you're gonna we're gonna get the excuse that it was bad weather. Because the cleveland in score a lot of points either. But here's the difference. They made enough plays in the run game to control the clock and win. They just did so. We can say all we want yes. I didn't expect a thirty eight point. Performance out of state especially with the weather and cleveland playing better and cleveland now six and three teams sitting sitting right for sitting pretty in a playoff tied with baltimore for second place. Although baltimore's got that one game up on him because they beat them so you sit there and say well okay and member. Everybody's all were much better cleveland. We sit here and said i wouldn't be so we all benefactor we pick cleveland. Yeah pick cleveland to win. And so and they did. And i didn't even feel comfortable down three to nothing as i said i. I didn't think the texas showed me signs of they're going to sustain this game and eventually you get concerned just like you do when you play tennessee and derrick henry that eventually one of the two running backs was going to wear you out in the second half because they were gonna commit to running. 'cause they watch the tape every week of what the texans have done for four quarters against the run not much starts of decency but then again being decent hammered and it wasn't just one due to did it. One guy would go over nick chubb. Grab some gatorade. The other dude come in a rush robuck. Plus then nick chubb come in while kareem hunt decided. Who's got a little more wiggle room. But i'll tell you what trouble where you out now. Smart footballer and it didn't look to me like there was no wiggle when he took off the sidelines and could have gone to the house. Right stepped out of bounds. So it's just listen. You just have to understand the texans fan no matter how positive wants to be an. I've tried and tried and tried. They can't fix this and they're not going to the playoffs and no. They're not capable of going to the playoffs this year because they're not good. It's a real debate of if they're going to win out of the game right. There really is pieces of the puzzle. There's some good ones but even those good pieces of the puzzle. Jj watt misses some place that he could make dhillon watson start slow misses some throws that he could make and then mix some throws it a normal human being can't make and he's spectacular so it it it's it's it's everybody coaches included accountability included. This football team is just. How do we look at it there. I never thought i'd say this with watson. cormac there are bottom five teams in the league. Yes they are everything about says that they are in there playing. Because here's the scary part you make. They may score twenty eight next week. Here's the problem. New england might score thirty one. Oh yeah earned. Run the ball over concerns me and not just run it with the running back the quarterback so and it's like i said players good and i've been a glass half full guy but i just can't. There's nothing i can do right now to look at this and say it can be salvaged and you have to find new head coach. You have to find a football. Gm you got to move on and you gotta just take the l and realized that twenty twenty ain't been good to a lot of people and ain't been good to the texans ain't gonna get better. They're not going to the playoffs. So if that's been in your thought process let it go. You should be begging them to get to four wins so they not picking first or second and you're pissed because that draft picks a team that's won five in a row already in miami miami sitting over there good in a playoff hunt and getting your pick bet has a still. You're still in the hut to get the first pick in the draft and by the way the dolphins gain game on buffalo yesterday with kyla. Murray's play and josh allen and by the way pretty good player to you think they've done some good things with him and the development there he gets them in the end zone to score and then. Unfortunately you're right miami sitting back saying thank you double a. Yeah that's exactly right. Yeah the a double way to hire bill. O'brien some sort of like honorary role to give him a bunch of money to say. Thank you to watch. The saddam dolphins hiram as an assistant he turned around and takes the first round. Pick back and it's a third pick of the draft right twenty thousand silver crew cab. We'll come back with a stakeout next. It's my guys at classic.

Talk seven hundred ninety sports. Talk seven ninety lee. We'll get to you before. We play the stakeout here in just a second Lee what's on your mind and on the west side. How are you lay on. My legal. John are you. Yeah my good man. My my thing is that the texas the season's already over we know it's not gonna turn around. We get all that. But the texas need to hire interim gm. I mean we already screwed up the trade deadline by not acquiring the assets because we have preacher. Jack who clearly would've known to pull off a trade on even if it's traditional in football but what about a retired gm someone who could fill in the gaps for us right now. How are we going to pick a new. Gm with jack easterby leading the way. This is a horrible horrible recipe for disaster. Who do you trust in texas organization to hire the next. Gm the most important position gm in the nfl. Who do you trust. are you going with jack easterby. Are you going with kalmyk. Who are you going with sean. I would be honest with you. I don't think there's any rule against interviewing gm's right now. There's no reason that trump put it this way. I can just tell you this. And i don't mean this disrespectful at all and i don't mean i'm just using me as an example. I know guys right now. That are i mean did are more qualified than than jack easterby to do it. They haven't done it. And i don i want to answer your question. -ly the bottom line is jack. Easterby can't be the guy to hire the gm or the head coach. Because he's not qualified to do it period period. So interim ozzie. Newsome john dorsey. Whatever you wanna do or a committee of people to start now start the search cove eight stopping me from hiring a head coach. That's absurd so yes you're exactly right. They can't go forward as they are now. And it's not going to be an interim guy because the interim guys already here at his. Name's jack easterby. He's the interim guy so in order to prevent this. You gotta get somebody in there. Who knows football jack to be back and continue to be the guy. They have did overseas if he wants to. Use a football guy to make football decision. And if jackie another excuse the what is it excuses. All the candidates are are in season right. Now they're going to wait for the offseason to get it done. The problem with that is they're still having easter. Pull the strings and the committee is going to be an absolute disaster. Even put a great name with ozzie. Newsome there has to be a retired. Gm who could write the ship for right now and help You know make the right pick but the problem is we're so backwards. Who could even make that pick right now. Take a miracle for us to get the right now ozzie. Newsome right now is one thousand times better than who they have in the building from top to bottom that and he's retired ozzy news longer. The gm in baltimore stepped aside. And ozzie newsome been the best. Gm we've had the nfl for the last twenty years period and highly and most underrate salim with you. I i understand why they're going to wait till the end of the season that part i get most teams usually do but in the process of it if jack easterby decides point himself and cow lets him we keep talking about jack and the rest of it like i said i'm sure jackson. I skied lee. Thanks for the call. Is we gotta start to put some of this. The owner grow a set of balls. Grow a set. I cannot believe if i owned a team. You don't get to tell me as the owner who did it. Here's the coach were hiring. I signed your frigging paycheck. And i cannot believe. I don't know kalmyk from well from jack jack easterby. I don't know either one of them. I know a football guy and a guy who gets it. What owner sits around and bill. O'brien do this to he. Controlled cow mcnair then. Apparently jack came in and jack got to the point where he convinced cow. Bill was the guy now jackson. The guy so for me is are we i. I've never understood this. How you as an owner. You're not. You're not the intern trying to get the job. You actually signed the turn because they make a building goal. I'm talking about you can go and find jack. Easterby walked into me right now and i was kalmyk mcnair if he walked into. Be right this second and said to me. Here's what i wanna do. i'm going to corn for. I'm gonna i think we should maybe think about hiring romeo cornell by the time he got out of his mouth. I'd say bring that up one more time and i'll know you're not doing your job will fire you our fire. If i'm understanding next time you walk into my office put five names on my desk. The gm candidates. And i'm gonna put five names as well. Because if i'm the owner. I'm doing my homework. It's my money my franchise my city. That comes when it come in root for my team that i got responsibility to know. What's going on mark. Cuban knows everything that goes on in his franchise and you can dislike jerry jones. All you want damn right. He does you think. Jerry jones is gonna let the let some guy in the office higher his next head coach if it was he. Didn't that guy didn't hire mike mccarthy. Jerry did whether you like to hire that jerry. Did the same thing here. I have zero idea why it made me as the boss as the owner would allow don football guy to make a football decision for me. I'd say jackie step over here. I heard you for this reason. You and your pro personnel guy you guys go and give me five names. You think i'm going to. Because i know as the owner because it's my business that i want success four. I'm gonna put my five. We're going to compare and see if i don't want you to tell me about him. Put them on a piece of paper folded up. And we'll see and then we're going to go and we're going to start the interview and jack you're not a candidate to be gm bingo you can learn because you got a lot to learn because no offense being a chaplain and leading guys in prayer doesn't qualify you to it qualifies you to go and and be jolo steen's guests but it doesn't qualify you to be the gm at this football team football just because you hung around bill belichick means you ain't bill bell check so you're going to hire football guy and if you don't think you can hire a football guy then i'm going to hire two or three guys and majority rules to come in and sit in here. I'll call troy aikman. I'll call ozzie. Newsome guys have been around and we'll sit him in here. We'll discuss it if i'm spinning that much money on korn ferry. Use step aside jack. This put team chaplain together. I'm gonna make sure that. I get wreck on the owner. And i'm going to hire the guy that i knows. Best from my franchise. It builds me a championship. Whether it's lincoln riley. Brian cabell. Joe brady eric enemy or seven other dudes or robert sala or i don't care who it is. But i'm going to do my interviewing. Because i'm gonna do my due diligence. But here's what's happening. The staff will be here next year. There may be a guy or two. I'll interview after to see if they belong with. But i'm not making that decision that guy who's the head coach will decide tim. Kelly romeo cornell stay on it. Feels like bob mcnair was the football guy in the mcneil. Family and cow doesn't know much so he tries to find these guys who can make these decisions for him and they don't really know didn't feel like much of a football when you're a football owner that hires than non football front office guy and you're trying to find a winning football team. You ain't got much shot okay. That'd be like trying to find your lead. Orthopedic surgeon at a dog on veterinarian's office okay. Sorry he operates on dogs and that's a matter of fact that's even closer to success because at least he's a surgeon at understands bones and ligaments and tendons. Okay stop it. You're the owner. Make a decision. But that's the is the owner not real. Sure he hires a front office. Guy not reassure and he had a head coach. Gm there was too sure too much power. So we've gone the extremes of both get a good football man who's got compassion but also listen. If you're not doing your job you're gone and it's the same with players accountability in the office. I cannot fathom running my business away were. It's a football business and i don't have a football guy making football decisions. I as the decision maker and the best. The best bosses recognize their weaknesses and hire somebody to cover them meaning. I don't know football so the next higher for me. He's gotta be fantastic football guy if you're an english guy and you don't know money. Higher kepala gist. If you're a just and you don't know how to read the stuff of the contract hire somebody who does if you're an owner who doesn't understand the ins and outs of football higher football guy. Not a guy who leads the team in prayer. That's important a chaplains important. It is god bless him but not when it comes to make an undrafted hiring the gm that's going to ensure that my football team makes money and we win so he can win a championship. Because i do believe that's the goal so if you're owner doesn't get it. How do you expect the guy who hands out gatorade to get it. They're not okay and anybody. In between so i listen. I forgot more football than jack. Easterby and cow mcnair no. I don't want the job. Well i'm only the reason. I'm saying that there's guys a thousand times more qualified than i am. That always you gotta do is make a phone call and interview. The most successful people always usually have the smartest people around him who are willing to tell them. you're wrong. the most successful people in the world aren't yes men. I mean they hire people. They don't want his. Yes many and you know what else do they realize. They're not always the smartest guy in the room. Cow may know how to make money in his business the rest of it with football cows. Not the smartest guy i'd like. I said i've never shaken. His hand met him a good guy. Don't know him. But i can tell you this when it comes to football. They don't have the proper plan in place. And if you don't plan your work and work your plan will be sitting here saying the same thing. Regardless of how good to shawn watson is in two thousand and twenty one. I think we were happening. What's strap in. It's gotta you're saying is going to be a thing. Which is what. I'll come in there and give you fifteen minutes of my time. Who should hire. And i'll do it for free just to save this city from another year of bs when it comes to blame it on everything but the simple fact that you don't really know who you're supposed to hire to sports talk. Seven ninety. sean salisbury show. We will stick it out next right here on sports. Talk seventy my guys. Mc and josh seek. Come right back. i james is james. The sauce ause berry so can seize the saw. The sauce sports socks ever ninety. Sean what do you hear. Not there now. The cells burris takeout takeout. On the sean salisbury. Show my head's going to explode thinking about what the texans are doing honest to god. I don't it just. I can't fathom how how what a waste it's going to be and let me tell you something i'm i'll tell you i don't like i don't but it's the nature of the sport. I mean if you don't do your job in football then new coach replace you and they. They all know that going in right no coach to one place. They have been coaching here. Since i was twenty one at least when. They're seventy whether it's college if they're moving around right here in houston. You can be around for a long time. Yes she pushed back here you or someone you want to work for the job security. Yeah and that's another thing. If you're eric the rest of them when you start to look at the front office. The by the way they're approaching it. They eliminate candidates daily every single day by the way they they look at it and and the way they approach when you hear this about the easterby situation and cow mcnair if you're a a a thriving young or older head coach and your next five years you're going to invest in something. I hate to say this knowing what i know about the front office. Watson's not good enough to to overcome a front office. And that's saying something because you know i feel about watson that oughta tell you just how bad it is like man that quarterbacks special but the band the buddies three caps man three capital letters in it's huge dot dot dot. The rest of the situation is not good. And i will tell you this whether you're mike devlin on the offensive line anthony. We've run do nothing personal against of these guys coaching staff. I'll tell you what i don't know of any other place. That has this kind of patients with assistant coaches either. I just don't because as i find the owner right now. I'm gonna tell you what house is going to be clean. You know when you have somebody come in and you just like you're going to. They do a full clean sky talking about when you look at them. Everything's gone and then you start to give close away to the goodwill and i mean before you've done it all you've cleaned it. All it's all clutter is all gone and you walk in you say. Oh my gosh a new lease on life right. I'm gonna tell you what i if there's anybody left from this current time. Not talking about the players. they'll be players left. I don't see how the you can look at a position group right now and say maybe receivers at times i. I don't know how you look at a position first of all if i'm the owner the head coach to make every decision. Now if you interview guy the running back coach you love him hiring. You love mike. Devon devon higher but. There's nobody on here that you say you have to keep him to be the head coach head coach. You do whatever you want you clean this whole house and scrubber however you want to manage your team that's what you have to do because it empowers the head coach to know then. He's accountable for every decision. Because if you keep an offensive coordinator and the coach didn't want him now. Guess who's accountable. You are said to put it on the coach. Who you hire dude. You're you're accountable. Page your and the general manager you're cannibal because you hired the damn coach you're attached at the frigging hip came. San francisco have john kyle. Shanahan were to ever go as much john that not happen. I'm just using them. Because every time we see one signs of new contract the other right did if one sucks. Guess what who has to take account ability for it now. They don't suck you both. Do you hire the guy. You're accountable for it. And we can't keep letting gm tire guys keep getting fired. Because guess what that means. I gotta start to look at the owner of the gm then or the people doing the hiring because they're not doing their due. Diligence south the province san francisco. We'd take kyle shanahan six ways twice on sunday right but anyway let's take it out mc let's start with you. We have not gotten to the other manning here. We can straighten thing in houston sports as of light. We talked obviously a lot about westbrook last week. The pardon rumors. Continue to swirl. Even though i felt that the reporting was very shoddy this felt like penny wars at its finest because woes got scooped by shams on harden being committed in for next season and now woes reporting it. Well james harden's intrigued by the thought of going to the brooklyn nets this this to me just doesn't i don't get it. I think it's it's not a team. It's a realistic possibility. Because they don't have what you would want. Return would seem so philadelphia as we get moved. Yes i do. I'm intrigued of dayton. Blake lively though. That's how i view wayne intrigued to go to the calls. You're right yeah. I'm intrigued and wanted me. Yeah i'm intriguing. Win the powerful but only when its pilot. You're talking about just era. Blake lively you a crush on her and she's already married to somebody and you think it's so far out of the w- the you have. No shot is what fair enough. I was gonna say. Did blake lively recently become available now. But she was married to one of the ryan's reynolds. Right yeah goslings. Mary to to What's the girl that was in the movie with Even mendez isn't gosling mendez together. I think so. So one of the ryan has got bought. The both the ryan's got both those gals fair enough. So yeah you had them like tam. What does she have to do with brooklyn did she. Data play doh. She's married to reynolds so with that. Yes i do actually mci. I i asked the question last week win. Can you start making trades. Well we found out that like tomorrow at eleven o'clock you can start today today at eleven o'clock josh week. Okay today at eleven. Am the draft is in two days. You could start actually making trades in well from our standpoint if it's eleven eastern eleven central eleven. Let's say it's twelve to eleven our time in less than four hours. You start trading assets to get assets. You want start trading. That's the old rule we get that window. Live free agency kicks in where you could start talking to a guy but he can't whatever okay. It's all this week. We're budget everything. Is we get started on december. Twenty second i am starting to get to the point. I didn't want to buy it. Maybe it's part of me resisting it but there's way too much heat not for me to think that this is unreal. That they're really really thinking about this. I don't know if brooklyn's going to be the team it seems like you'd get from phillies appeared james hard you send him words best for you to send him not for where it's best for him. Oh my gosh. This day crumbled to him put. I don't care what he's done for the franchise and what he's done for the franchise is not put. A bunch of points won't be freaking. Do anyone in beeping. Here's what i here's where i've not see the. Jj watt thanks different. He's later in his career. Not that if you came out still wouldn't give. Jj away for four threader right guy. Still. he's is peak value. Right right and heart is so far. Said i want to go to brooklyn. But philadelphia's offered me more james. I your logger here on your own. Don't have one if phoenix calls tomorrow. Guess what you're going to be calls tomorrow deal and you want out. I'm sure segments. This isn't a james harden deal. This is the houston rockets. Deal if they did if they do end up caving to what he wants to trading. That knows that tells you all you need to know and that's unfortunately tells us that this too. I'm not listen. I'm not in the. Hey life thank you man. I appreciate you being here. We're gonna ship you to make you happy. He's under contract yet. That's exactly right. It's going to get paid where he goes. This trade isn't for james harden this trades for the houston rockets. The other team involved. I'm not i'm not. He came to you a year ago and said hater chris. Paul i want you to trade. Chris paul bring me so guess what. He can't tell you where he wants to. Guess if i want to trade you to philadelphia and get more assets than i would from brooklyn. Guess what you're getting trade to philadelphia or wherever else. that may be mark. Welcome in man. We'll get to you in a second. Josh what's going on mark just wanted to hell with other rocket trae talk whatever after. We have a gm yet do all that. Yeah we do feel rowdy front office. He took over for for daryl morey so he will be making those decisions. Okay and then wondering what ball Kevin durant and The other point over. They're going play with jay here. I mean he gave that thing though man. I'm just wondering how it after work man. i don't hear mark. Thank you appreciate the call. There will be enough basketball's to go around because all three we're going. But if not they i heard they were going to cut it and thirds like pizza pizza pie. Yeah you get a third you get or every game. They're just gonna just today's your day. You get forty quarterback choir you guys who and whoever gets the most in one quarter gets you. It's like when you play and pick up with a three on three or five on five. You win you stay. So we'll get you get the first five minutes of the court or the four four and four. Whoever scores the most in the first quarter four gets to dominate the ball in the second quarter. So that's how we're going to rotate. Its ed get the ball. I would have saved that. All three of them want it. That's going to be fun to watch. I could obviously that if it happens. Josh what you got all right so two quick questions. No the great weekend. Nfl maybe for everyone else beside the texans. Who are your top top three rookie quarterback's because we sell herbert and to play. How would you want them. In order to a borough and herbert and then also mentioned this a little bit of breaking kind of popped in my head who are the top. Three receivers overall the nfl. We're all the real for me. It's it's for me. The top. Three r are hopkins digs and and dj. Dj decay. Metcalf so easy to just want guys de yards. Dj decay came to me. Those are the three that if i was lining up in three received. I'd probably go those three this year. And we're leaving a bunch of good ones off the list. But i start with those three digs has been so good for buffalo. We already know what hopkins brings to the table and metcalfe's just a frigging full grown ass man monster. Okay your top three yard. That they're i know they're in the top five. So i'd start there as far as quarterbacks i'd go in this order right now i don't know what's going to be in top three by the way for me. I'd go berle herbert to today now. Next every single one of them has been impressive. The reason why boroughs got the worst team. And he's he's taking team record wise so yeah And you look at the towers but look at the talent looking around the talent. The talent on the ross racist hunter henry allen. I mean. they've got more players to charge today. They just do it right. And both quarterbacks getting herbert's got both of them have good feet for big big dudes right. So i go borough. I herbert second in herbert's been frigging. He's the biggest surprise. Oddly his game yesterday maybe as worse game and he really wasn't right and then to as you could see every single game. He's taken another step every single game taken us. It was the right move to make the switch from from fits to to it just was and now. There's one three in a row with him five in a row. They're the they're charging the gain a game on buffalo. Yesterday i would go in that order. Now i'm going to tell you this maybe having this conversation in the middle of next year and turban ban jumped burrow burrow. Maybe it's going to be one of those. We're lucky. we got three rookies. Battling for what appears to be a while as far as who was the best quarterback of the draft in that draft. So we'll see and like you said the switch just amazing now because they don't have to worry about. Do we have quarterback. Now they can just go say all right. What do we help. Make this quarterback better spe especially miami fixed but all three of them. Now just get to say we can build our team around these three studs. There is no question who the study is for. All three of all three of them have played damned good flip you can win with all of them and they justified why you picked him where you pick them and there's no question about it. Sports talk seven ninety. That's the stake at coming back. Sean salisbury show golf club a houston golf club houston in unbel- great golf course man. I was thinking over the weekend. I gotta get back out there. And shore game up and get to mike mcgetrick. The mike mcgetrick golf academy phenomenal. He's helped game more than anybody over thirty years of playing golf just at and it takes about an hour for him to make a slight adjustment here there so if you wanna get your game right go see mike if you want to go and see one of the best golf courses where the pros play and you can memberships available everything from going in the grill and the in the great customer service to the golf shop to to the driving range all the things. I'm a guy likes the little things little details and they do them. Go back to the sean salisbury. Show on sports. Talk seven hundred. Houston your stores your rockets your voice. Sports talk said the ninety rolling along here. Our number two The struggle football wise is so real the passion Even more real. But it's it's bothersome romeo cornell talking about the difference number eleven josh the difference in the run game meaning defending the run in the first half of the second half but we play sixty minutes. I'm and i have not heard this yet. But i'm anxious. Hear romeo cornell. Discussing the difference in two halves first half. I thought that we did our job better. After that first series you know we get our job better and then we were able to stop the run and then in the second half you know we knew that they were going to run it and so guys started trying to make plays and got out of position and they took advantage of it. I don't understand that philosophy. We're doing our job in the first half when they were running it and then we knew they were going to run it so we quit doing our job. You'd think you to be easier if you know. They're only thinkers your next texans head coach. Think about the conflict in this. We knew they were going to run it and we didn't do our jobs win. In the first half they ran it and we did our jobs and we had success so my thought process is either. You don't know how to coach not him but that there they came out in the second half they just go make place but what happened to the discipline. You had in the first half to do it and i don't understand the philosophy. I don't understand the answer when you they're gonna run it. Wouldn't it be better to just do your job so when you didn't think they were going to run it. You did your job an ad success when you knew they were going to run it. You didn't do your job because you wanna make plays isn't making plays doing. Your job baffling to me. A matter of fact. I gotta come clean that i hear more baffling stuff in texas and i have for in texans. Postgame press conferences. That i've heard from any team in my career playing it covering it talking about honest to god. I hear it every week from it is what it is to. I don't know why we're doing this but we made plays. We didn't make plays. We did this when bill said you know we got great guys on the team ant. Okay great guidance. Give me a fourth of one stop. I'm not asking you how great they are. We'll discuss that on a tuesday day off at a chance to really lead to a solid open-field tackle. They're right. I just the guy who didn't like making plays continuously in arizona so i don't understand that the press conferences and i know judge a team but but if this is really the thought process who's teaching it and coach who and who's playing it. We did our job in the first half when they ran the ball. We knew they were going to run it in the second half and we didn't do our job because we wanted to make plays so you only make plays when you're not doing your job. I don't understand romeo's answer. And if that's their philosophy no wonder they suck michael. Thomas actually said similarly but gave a better breakdown on what happened in the second half with the run defense. I'll play that and we'll see if it's really a number thirty six. Let's hear that guy's going hard. I saw continue to play very good. Run defense in the second half. But particularly on at the second touchdown touchdown drive to make it ten ten zero. We needed to get off the field on third down grades out for a second stop at run. It'll be third and long actually and we didn't get off the field and then you know you're playing against a team that has a good rushing it's tech and has two great your great running backs and they just they just kept getting to play the the downs extended and the drive extended it just kept getting opportunities and they finally scored and then that second hand alright last drive when special teams him down giving us giving us ourselves a chance to finally come back and win thank guys just they were going being in gaps but we just gotta make tackles we gotta interest at that point forty one carries two hundred thirty one yards. You go ahead and do the math. What that's average per carry. Now listen i once again. I understand what michael. Thomas is saying. I do i i i understand. I understand what he's saying. Did they played hard. Here's what i don't get. Why do we keep saying. Why do we keep making the excuse of we play here. Yeah i don't get everyone plays i said well. We played hard but we just can't make any place. We couldn't get off the field. We played hard but we couldn't get out to feed on third down and good running team. I told you this week that this was the best to some in the league. I told you that averaged five point six kerry. Yeah well guess. What when you can't get off on third when you go five point six on first down so you're basically at six yard gain. I've always said if i get five to six yards. On first down its first downs. The most important down in football you get the statistics you always see thrown on the on the on your tv third down conversions. Guess where you don't get a lot of first downs when your third and fourteen taken a sack. New line of scrimmage created by the defense to where they stop you now second and twelve. Then i get five yards in his third and seven once again. I can pressure you get a five yard completion catching tackle punt. So i understand. Listen i i get it but i can't. This is insanity. It's insanity to tell me every we played hard and we got good guys and good players on that point so hard that i have to use sixty two yards of the one sixty nine in the second half right okay so you can't play hard for sixty minutes. I know of michael thomson. I'm not dogging him but there comes a point in time when it when. It's the same groundhog day story every week. We i. you're telling me you can't fix it and you're second short like you mentioned. Is those short yards. It opens playbook to everything. That's win those teams can have those big shots and or just handed off and keep running right down if you want. Take your chance. You gotta you know against the texans on third in the yard. It's a pretty easy get for you. They're not getting five. Yesterday they could hand the ball off and get it. Yeah it just like. I said it's not personal. It's the fact that when you watch them if this happened twice. I'd say happened every team and nine times. You have many nine times. You've got to wins but even those winds those the other team success. Yeah so i just. It's absolutely baffling some of the answers. I hear and postgame press conferences. We played hard a who did find me a team for the most part and yesterday's games that didn't play hard but jack wires yesterday went out and played hard whoop de do they lost lost. It's a moral victory. He played hard. Everybody's got that moral victory than ever played hard. The through nine games have given up. Fifteen hundred yards rushing. That's a season for a good running back. Moshe here a little over halfway. i don't understand game. I don't get how you can tell me well. We we were good against the run in the first half. We did our job second half. We tried to make plays knowing they were going to run the ball and we didn't do our job and so they played better. I i would think it would be the. We're doing a great job so just keep doing what you're doing. They're lucky it was windy yesterday. Honestly because if it wasn't play action. Fake i can't imagine me yards and it was a hard watch yesterday but it's like i said it's groundhog day. With the analysis to it starts with physicality upfront. And they don't have it on either side of the ball. They wonder why people don't have the enthusiasm for them. And i just at some point in time. Where's nasty where he will. Where are you as a coach and a player so pissed that you just you play out of your skin and you have play out of your mind. I'm waiting for that moment when they play out of their mind and this is just. This is all a trickle down though. There's no nasty in anything they do. Nothing it sad. All right sports. Talk seventy hour number. Three next dr jeff whitsett whitsett vision dot com with vision dot com. I had i wanted. I was tired of squint. And i didn't want readers eyeglasses or contacts.

Salt time francesa's very. This is sean salisbury. Show five hour number three getting after it by would love to select the next general manager and head coach of the texans. I you can. And we're going to hear from urban meyer and a second about culture in the building and what matters by us. Trojans and garett louis we're going to get to you in just second trojans one again this weekend. I want to publicly congratulate my guy from saint pious grant canal. Who played his heart out doable. He moves for six to thirty way. Ueli starts to understand what goes on that. He's going to be a special player. And i'm so grateful to a mentioned. He was one of the most prolific passers in texas right. No no the most prolific passer n- texas high school history. So proud of him he he almost beat my trojans and quite frankly even though i'm a usc fan. I wouldn't have been to mad of grant. Donell would beat him but congrats to him. But you gotta go in. An urban meyer is on fox. And hold that. We're going to get to that after our callers. Okay josh but just to say this. Is it winning. Games is what we all talk about. I draw take an ugly win more than a pretty loss any day of the week but you also start to see certain wins. How certain teams have a way about them listen. Usc two losses led. They should have found a slow. Was one play. Well played well in the very end of the balls wobbling all over the place but play while and then they went okay. I'll take him but you start to look at the reason why they win or why they got to those positions and and what it takes. Listen i'm not saying that. now. I got one thing. Spread is done. But what's the offense. That lee mike lee. What do we call it with air raid. It's never won. A national title. Note has no. I'm just trying to think of the recent never want it would. Last year's lsu team qualifies a semi-arid also mixed with west coast and are not at all on models yes the little bit of everything the quote unquote air raid. So few teams. Just do the everybody's doing a little bit we'll cliff had to you gotta jet to so many i mean he ran the ball when he was ain't right and knows how important it is to run the ball in certain games now to right now and power running game not just to finesse running game right so it matters. But point is is an sc we used to be power and we we don't dominate the scrimmage fiscal on either side and the only reason i'm saying this in a leader urban myers you watch them guys on a kneel down on a kneel down situation they got in the gun and i thought he hit me the culture situation of they can't get under center they got they got in the shotgun to kneel down before half supposedly the more dangerous i thought to myself my gosh debris from bruce matthews to dan most part anthony demarcus out they'd be d- guarantee their their their heads one explode. It's great to have a version of everything right. I loved offenses. But there's gotta come a point in time like if the forever at the half yard line again in the lineup in the shotgun. I i will lose my frigging mind right. Yeah or dropped russ straight back instead of. Give him an option right. That's an another day but there's culture things go on that even in win and you can see the force through the trees right we can. We can see and we can look at liberty you could see regardless what hugh hugh freeze went through. He knows how to coach football. Yeah and he's going to get a bigger job and quite frankly must champs struggled inserts. You could see that that guy is gonna right and then there's just certain right. There's just certain things you can see no matter where urban meyer's went what he does in green utah. Florida ohio state. Whether you like is there against what arben about he. He knows how to win in the building right. Okay for all the periphery. So you can argue with me coaches and higher and this and recruiting cheating. We argue about all the schools okay. I'm just telling you he knows how to do it whether you like it or not win. Urban meyer goes to your school. You're going to win career so we'll get to what he said in a second. I want to give our callers a platform but even with and the reason i use them because urban he's always been tied the last couple of years to the trojans right we're to klay helton's going thank goodness cleveland keaton slovak a little gets pretty good wide receivers on the perimeter but the interior of toughness. Something's lacking and i here from usc. My buddies all the time who were offensive line or running backs. It's like it's different right right now. If we played notre dame guys physically in our regular rival game one of my buddies said oh we want notre dame and i put back on there said no. No actually not this time around right now. We don't we're to an over. We don't want any part of that physicality today we'll get to urban meyer and a second gear. Welcome in man. What's on your mind and a man. It as a two and seven team does it. Suck your way up to this morning and not seeing Yourself on the highlights. Very much for me. Because i'm a raider fan and we won again but it sucks for me being in houston rooting for the texans to win. But the reason why it doesn't suck is because this has been ground all year long if number four is not making a spectacular player. Jj's not making a spectacular sack you ain't getting highlights and nor do they deserve and they don't deserve them on national tv quite frankly well i guess further future man. I just had a quick five with this new rule. Change do you think it's in the best The texans best interests to bring in a coach and lose compensatory draft picks for the next few years or does that really emphasize Hiring and developing the right people to avoid that kind of to give up picks to get a coach correct. Why would i do that. If fair eric be enemies it's not giving up The new rule is if you develop a minority head coach. Yes you're talking. yes you're talking about. What they you develop them. You get a consideration you either get an extra draft. Pick her move up in the draft with the new. Cba and that they're agreeing to part of it is addendum to it that if you do that then you get and it says you know what the crazy thing about is. We shouldn't have to do this to train. And hire and give minorities and opportunity to be positioned to be hired as coordinators position coaches head coaches and general managers. We shouldn't have to do this. Should just be part of the higher in the best player and coach and general. Unfortunately we haven't given minority coaches the proper opportunity to move up through the ranks to have the opportunity to do it. So it's a good thing but it seems like man ozzie. Newsome eric be enemy. But in the eric enemy case you don't you just go. After the best coach airbnb may very well be the best coach. So i'm just gonna hire a minority coach or hire a train them just because i want an extra pick a trainer because you know they're good and they deserve the opportunity and then you hire the best right now. There's no better assistant to higher than eric. Peony he's african american. Okay great but in. Do i believe you need to bring bring more. African americans inner minorities and give them an opportunity to learn in the front office yet absolutely. It's a shame we have to get to that point right now. We should have already been at that point. It's twenty frigging twenty but we are and if that's the case to get compensatory picks garrett thank you for the call then i get it. That's the case but right now the best candidates and guess who's been through all the training from assistant all the way up being db's in their position so absolutely. But i put it this way. If you thought that somebody was a better coach and you just doing it. Just to get a compensatory. Pick well to me. That's not fair to the person who you should hire the best candidate right now. Eric be enemy by all accounts is as good as it's not the best candidate there is out. There is an assistant coach to hire but yes with the new rule. I thought he meant you had to go get a compensatory pick to kansas city. No think it's helping kansas city by getting you're giving them netcom pick. Is it worth going that. I think that was more and the truth is campaign. Here's the thing about is kansas city. You don't have the choice you can hire them and put another tidal go. But if eric vietnamese gonna you hired him as a head coach. Kansas city so yes sin. If in the process of the natural evolution of hiring a coach that eric who happens to be minority. African american comes here. And then you get your bring somebody else in and develop in. Kansas city in kansas city gets more compensatory. Pick for god bless them. There is absolutely no question. We need to do a far better job at creating opportunities for guys to move up in the ranks to be front office guys and presidents in general manager. I think we all know that my point was. It's a shame that in pro sports we actually. We actually have to give you pick to hire the best candidate or to train the best cabinet. It's the best candidates. I don't care if he's hispanic if he happens to be ron rivera or if he happens to be all those whose hawaii i mean the best. Hire the best train them but we definitely need. Open the door listening. If you're not doing a good job of it. We got to create opportunities for that and we should so. There's no doubt the deal is whether he's black white or any other color. Eric happens to be african american. Eric be enemies a damn good coach and more than qualified to be the head coach but if in the process of giving people opportunities you get a compensatory pick. You'll take it right. Yeah you will take it all right. Real quick lewis you hold. I wanna i wanna give you. I don't want to cut you off. And i and like i said this compensatory pick i think it's a we're headed in the right direction to make people aware of start training people and giving them an opportunity to be coordinators given opportunity to be front office guys in general managers. They deserve the chance and if they're not good enough you fire you hire somebody else like you would in any situation but in order to get to the situation you got actually go through the ranks. Something that the guy here didn't do accents. He should system. Gm pro point all those things that we're asking all of our guys to do and give an african americans and minorities the opportunity to do that which we should eric enemies going to be a head coach whether the texans hire or not. He is going to be a head coach next year. It'd be are lost. We don't we're gonna come back and we're going to hear from urban meyer. We're going to hear from lewis and our callers at seven one. Three two one two five seven hundred talking about culture in the building players coaches and how you basically build a winner. And he's qualified to talk about it. Trust me sports. Talk seven ninety. John salisbury show continues on sports. Talk seven thousand nine hundred ninety all for your home teams who sports talk seven hundred. Roll along here. Our number three going fast. Frustration makes us furious. I did there and say i know you. Did you see furious. I've seen a my favorite movies. That kid i for some reason. I wanted to the super bag. The toyota supra learned was pretty sweet giants after our turn like thirteen. You don't want that car. Probably not not a lot and as you grow probably not a lot of room. This crazy car driven fit nine day and it was like what is that. It looks kinda cool. I would never drive cars not bad. It was a super. I guess back there. There's a lot of cars. I like that. I just can't fit in. But they would never limbo. ferraris. I've seen around here easily. People are just bored and just eight. Let's go drive this thing or what. But there's been a lot. Tell you this new chevy corvette now. Looks like a damn lambeau saying frigging. I sat in one at dead classic. Chevy i'm telling you right now you're like This you feel like you're in the cockpit of a plane. I was saying to my brother-in-law who has an older corvette like man. The new ones look like an italian supercar. Zero to sixty in a blink to now pretty awesome because i like speed and i like the sound right. I don't like speed. i like to go. Fastow's at red bulls my speed or five hour energy. Don't drink driving exactly heavy foot. Admit especially if it's like a red one or one that's just green and yellow. When you can just say right you're asking. Oh yeah that's exactly right. Let's get to louis lou. What's up man. How you doing doing this morning. Good sir how are you Right on a coating on the east side east. I things i wanted thing. We and i'll season we practice only tekla yesterday. man. I saying from the everything appropriately. The doesn't have so many miss tackles if they go to the game room this morning and look at the film. There'd be embarrassed day rottweilers. They was position it was like he was allowed yesterday a louis. Let me ask you this when you watch these guys and i. It's it's a problem that this is a problem every single for nine straight games. They've had there been a problem and so it tells me it's either not being taught writer. They're not paying attention to detail. I they not fantastic decay on because it's not only coach them in the right spot. I like like yeah like on their last page read. There's no way he like. He just do his body out a lot of time. And you see it a lot to louis. Thank you and you make a great point. Thanks for the call. Man about poor tackling. Is you how many times you see guys now. We got a bunch of guys leap and you know what they do because they go head down for a shutdown and the guys just say i know he's gone low so we'll jump over and here's the problem. Though on the one to at the last run that that went out of bounds is while you missed tackles to be able to break contain in that situation where you get outside the you get outside leverage. You can't listen if you don't do anything else in football you got a four help inside the best play. They made yesterday. Defensively was oddly. Enough a corner coming in hargraves on a blitz and making the ankle tackle in the backfield. Now the one. I'm talking about pressure and sewing it up in the back. That was one of the better defensive plays. They've made a just can't keep getting hammered. I will say it was nice to not watch them. Give up more than ten points. But it wasn't a pretty easy ten. They played hard. They did play hard and they didn't get the cove is what we think. Listen we got teams all around the country from south carolina with three open college football jobs already and the seasons still going utah state. That was utah. State right South carolina and i'm losing my mind on. There's one other one that's open got that's been fired during the season and i can't remember who it is but there's an interim coach there it will conduct but there's three right now and the nfl. There's going to be a half a dozen more than likely things right. And so when you're talking about the texans you can talk about teams. The maybe even have coaches. They're wondering well will he. Last here's what urban meyer bowling green. He won got the utah job he won got the florida job. He won a national championship or two. Did he went to their. Where already wants to okay. And then he goes to ohio state and he's one so he's at three now right. So here's a guy that i don't care what your what's your thought. Process is on whether you like urban meyer or not. He's now on fox. Obviously key is probably the most wanted and desired casting coach. There is any big college opening their rights and he's he's been out long the heat he's still fresh and the last member you have him aside from the off the field and he the fact that he wins and he keeps winning. He's gonna leave at some point because something's coming. He's only fifty six. He's coaching yes. He's a coach by heart. While the broadcasting's fine you gotta know that when he goes like. I think they're on site this week at ohio state. I think they're the fox broadcast their pregame. Show is that is in the horseshoe because indiana and get a load of this indiana's number ten in the country. Playing great football. Starting three touchdown underdogs against ohio state three. So i don't know man that's going to be a tempting bedford. Indiana may be able to hang around on this ohio state thing but with that in mind. Urban meyer is coach and if the sometimes you just got offer guy whatever you want to offer him i'm i'm just saying the texans anywhere and see if he'll bite and if he turns down unwanted coach i have one hundred myers coach and against sooner than later now. Here's what he said on the fox. I think this the game of the halftime part of it. I can't remember would say. I saw it but i can't remember if i saw pregame or halftime of the game. But they're studio. Show with liner. And brady quinn reggie bush rob stone is the host. Here's what herman meyer said about. Culture in a building and what has to be done in. What can't be done every time. I've had a team struggle every time it's fallen one of three categories number one. There's some trust issue. The players don't trust the coach. The coach don't trust the players or awful. When the don't trust each other number two it really think about it's called a dysfunctional work environment. Reggie and that's that where the expectations are very high. But we don't work hard. I've been here before coach and the coach has to be real clear with this team. Say wait a minute. That's can lead to frustration anger disappointment because we want to win a championship. I've got news guys. We're not working hard so quick. Stop with the expectations. If your your work must succeed or equate your expectations. That's a good environment. And the last one is real obvious. You got a selfish team man. You got problems on your team. Football is unselfish sport. That means you got to do the nasty then. Musoma running back. I gotta go protect my quarterback. Yeah that you don't always get to carry the ball. Sometimes you have to run down and kickoff twenty two miles an hour thirty yourself into someone come and fifteen miles the other way. That's not fun. Why would you do that because you love your team and your team so when you hear. Lsu penn state walgreens struggling stop with the bad players. I get sick of hearing. It's not the players. And i don't think it's coaches but there's something wrong. Lift the hood find out. One of those. Three things is usually the reason. And in some cases all three are a problem in some cases all three are problem. He made the point about selfish. Football players or self cokes. A selfish coach is one that makes you do everything that he says. I'm talking about like an offense. It's not working. he says. Like for instance when lamar was there. If gregg roman was selfish she would just not the way. I coach and what he did and defenses are playing better some but he said we're gonna change this and they have right and andy reid and he reads a west coast. Offense guy. pat comes in. Well we're going to do with. Pat does well and what. I do well and combine them. That's that's called an unselfish moving ego out of the equation. Take you got to have some pride. but ego. Can't be the all encompassing reason. Why you're doing what you're doing. And he made the point about about when you work ethic has to exceed and or equate be equal to you know what the You think watch who you think you are. And if it isn't dan it becomes a problem and the listen the one thing. I'm when i'm telling you. I'm just use them on a smaller scale. But when i'm training quarterbacks and we got receivers out there and it's a grind and it's on sunday morning yesterday and you played friday night and they're putting their time in and listen and i'm we're we're going over what went on in the game friday night or run plays that they run that the listen even in the offseason the grind of doing the same. It's monotonous it's boring and it's honest that's where you that's where you get better amen. Eight it is. You're tired of it. It's the same thing you're hearing the same thing. But then when the pressure hits the next year on friday night and put your foot in the ground and throw a slant into the first window because you are urging on your drop and then it hits you when you're deciding tapping to me as a player. I mean anyway can remember all the lessons in baseball and it would get monotonous and you hate. It was like every wednesday night. And tuesday. Thursday night amend the batting cage for an hour and a half the coach. And then you hit that one ball and then the guy bus you on the outer half of the plate and you drive your front shoulder to right center and hip to the gap and when you're standing on second base. You think they'll work. It helped work. Yes exactly and you do. We've all had moments as a player. I see it as a coach. When i'm coaching and i said i said i promise you at some point in time it's gonna rear in in duress because of this one other guys are sleeping on sunday morning it will pay off and there's nothing better to me. I mean it when a kid throws for four hundred wins and you get that text on friday night. Which i get back. Okay and did you win. We want boom okay then. I'm happy for them. Because i know the grind izhar urban myers talking about listen. You think a five star recruit wants to run down on special teams. No you know what he wants to. He wants to get the glory and the quarterback or the running back or the pass rusher and guess what as a freshman nearby alabama's got sixty of them. Yeah and that's a big reason. Say says he does is to get that buying like okay. I know this guy is willing to do whatever it takes for the team. Right and mc. I've mentioned this to you before. When when marcus allen went to. Usc is a freshman coming off five touchdowns in the championship and five gb ram through. Did it all charlie white. was there well. Hence we know how good he was at his. Se running back. One is trophy. Marcus had to play fullback and block for his ass. Home broke his nose block and john put him back in. There had to change his face mask why he was going to teach them how to be even tougher than he already was. Well spring ford couple of years. Guess who is is trophy in is the first two thousand yard rusher doing those monotonous things that. I'm sure at times marcus. One looking dude. I just came off five touchdowns star the un star here because number twelve in front of ya better player and you are right now bingo. He wins the heisman. Marcus khoza winston. So there's an urban meyer change the course of your team. And that coach we see dabble has it. Notre dame looks like this year. They finally grasped it. Doesn't they look different to me. Alabama's had it. Lsu had it last year where you were. Players do an unselfish things to for the betterment of a team and coaches coaching it properly and players buying in and trusting each other. There's so many but if one's missing it's tough it's tough just like you say if you can hit a fastball and all of a sudden you get drafted in the first round but can never hit a curve eventually. Guess what's going to catch up. Yeah exac- eventually it does and so you better have something else to lean on like bryson daesean both past weekend. He can't hit a frigging farewell. We'll guess don't win right. And when the days when he hits it three hundred and eighty and he hits fairway. You probably wins. Because he's got one hundred yard shot closer than everybody else. But when you don't you make bogeys and take sixes and and miss. And then dustin johnson hits about five yards shorter than you but hidden greens and making putts. Wins going away so in a team sport urban meyer's right matter of fact if you were smart even if you didn't want to hire them if you're comic they're call him in say i mean at this point. I wouldn't even be mad at hiring her. Meyer considering the names. You make your promise. If if i'm just using clay but let's say us job was even you would if you hire urban meyer. We will be in the national title within three years. Guaranteed you absolutely will. If the texans higher urban meyer they will win the division within eight within with maybe the following year within two years they win the division. I promise you know first round draft pick because you know what he knows how to build a culture and he knows how to get the most out of his players maximizes the word and he doesn't sports talk seven hundred. Sean sounds we shall biscuit stay right there. Much more to discuss urban meyer's impressive. There should be a long line waiting on him. But you better have a big brinks truck as well shots. Osbour- show dr sean salisbury on sports. Talk seven ninety where astros in rockets play and real texans talk. Let me make this point before. I get to biscuit an mc. And i were talking during the break. And i'm gonna tell you guarantee this is without without even me even i don't have to even qualify this i but i don't have to the best coach in the coaching world who's available. That wants to coach again. I believe i believe he wants to coach. I know bill cowers good. But bill's been out a long time. Tony dungy's not gonna coach. He's been out awhile. The best coach at high school college or nfl level right now this available to be a coach. He's the best coach in the world. Right now that you could hire is urban meyer better than no disrespect today. Bill or joe. Brady or or eric be enemy. Urban meyer is the best coach in the world. That's not does not have a job right now. Period the only did what twenty two and two at utah. The utah was utah. They really had anything great. You know they're still just loyalty the only coach who can even get close to the grace of all time little currently in college. Football is a reminder and. That's well obviously after nick. Sabin save is the leader right now myers only one who could challenge that. He's all time record in college. Football's a head coaches one. Eighty seven thirty. Two right does not thirty to gain an understanding. What i understand what i'm telling you. The best coached at the texans could hire his urban. Meyer now you say well. I just please. Don't be the guy who says. Nfl coaches don't work in college. Matt rhule's doing a pretty decent job and please don't be that guy because times change all the time. 'cause those same people who tell me college coaches don't work in the nfl or the same guys who told me mahomes. And those type of shotgun. Quarterbacks can't work in the nfl present you. Kyla murray i present to you. Joe burrow i present to you trevor lawrence i present to you pat mahomes. Who happens to be the best. Save the well because nowadays. Guess what guess what's not different. We do the same things in the nfl. We do in college matter of fact there are. Nfl coaches that are going to college campuses. Learning their system as he used to always be the other way around. You go to nfl and they'd the clinic and you'd go in there and the the college coaching staff or go to kansas city. And they still do all over the place and went is not there on your allowed and sit down with andy reid staff and walked through. What you do it's also reverse there are. Nfl coaches lincoln riley. Right now and have been. They want to talk about the passing game. I'm just telling you. And so save the well. He wouldn't succeed in the nfl. Because if urban meyer coaches the tech matter fact you want to save face quickly. I love eric me but if you could get urban meyer at nine million. A year for six years. Hire him yesterday. Yeah period and to shawn. Watson will play great. He'll hire a great staff. And i got news for you. They'll win the division by the time. Twenty twenty three hits at the latest. I'm talking about and that's no first round pick this year. He will find. I'm just telling you well. It's it's different but at no time in our lives as nfl and college closer together. Yeah everything we do. Salary approach offenses defenses athletes. It ain't very far. Listen you played in alabama clemson. You're about four months away from being rookie of the year with the big boys. So save it. I'm not the urban meyer thing. While i would love while i would love to have a guy like eric banning me i don't know if you get urban meyer but if i was there i honest to god would have called her of and agent the second bill. O'brien was fired. We know he's interested. I he'd be interested in nfl job. He was interested in browns. Listen listen you call urban meyer up say urban you. Can you also get to decide. Help the gm with the groceries. We'll hire a gm. We'll pay you jon gruden. Type money's eight to ten million bucks a year right ano- by the way we got what you'd love to have which you have and you know what a winner quarterback we. We assume it's got the same day that he had in college. He has now with the coach. Who can bring out. I'm telling you right now. All these other talk if you really want to change your program immediately go get even meyer but an answer please. Like i said save the willies. College goes i don't care you're some coach like i said i mean. Do you think people would. Obviously it's a bad taste because bill. O'brien came directly from college. He'd been in the nfl force but then again. If it's a bad taste you collect be mad at bill. O'brien for all the stuff. He did wrong. He did win. Four division championships. This'll urban meyer's your coach against the the the kansas city change. They're not they don't last twenty four they don't they don't collapse they would have found a way. They may have made close but they would. If they would've found. And i'm just telling you. Now i don't know if you can get him or they would have the they would pay him. The net assistant coaches aren't being the lead dog right now. You know he. He's the man i get it. But if you really wanna fix listener of meyer. He's right on the cultural change if you're a if you think you're a sacred cow but your fat cat. Yes what happens gone. Even he would run them right out of the building and you don't have to like his personality. 'cause i got news for you. Urban doesn't care. No he doesn't all right. Let's get to biscuit biscuit. What's up man. Hey brother sean you know we. We kinda disagree. A lot of things. the raiders. The almost had a fight over that. But man you spot on whatever meyer we. I don't disagree with a lot of things. We disagree with something we get after it. Yeah yeah but if you if you watch the fox so when that man speaks is like this spot on and and i know people are saying. 'cause i i think the issues people say well saving into good. Do good in the pros. He's doing great and cops but urban meyer has a different tiffany than saving. And that's my opinion. I think the mayer has that right temperament that he should do it. And and what are you saying about the expectation level. And a work ethic. That's my. that's the millennials. that's man. I'm having an issue with my son right. Of course millennials in a nutshell. You want me. They all think they going to get to be successful. You know all the kids. I coach so we always end of the season. Like what are you seeing yourself for fifteen years. Nobody said You know we're going garbage truck. Everybody was going to be a doctor lawyer. I'm alluvial nearby told me we'll ask me what i was to do that. I was going to be here at this station on a microphone. What happened because you put your tires. Exactly right you put your time with through. The pecking gear right and be a doctor but i haven't took. Sat's yeah i'm going to be a doctor. But i don't have the grades to get into college. That's a problem. Yeah they give them away right. Hey let me ask you about this biscuit. You talked about nick. Sabin think about this so even with nick's personality imagine if the quarterback was drew brees like it was supposed to be in in my right. We imagined just that player and no disrespect to culpepper but remember culpepper chain. His his knee was coming up to that visual of him dropping back in the pocket and his niece still wasn't healthy. that'd be imagined. Nick may still be back in alabama. But i would imagine the franchise opportunities to be successful would have changed if nick would have had drew brees right. I believe right. But i i'm with you. One hundred percent on demeanor now behind clark or behind closed. Doors durban meyer. We'll make sure you're doing it right dress you but on the out yes. You're exactly right. There's there's a different approach. But even nick sabin when he goes on and does broadcasting has a different calmer for you ever seen i mean. I know you've watching biscuit. There's a calmness of the bottom line is great coaches can coach at any level. And you and. I both know that. What are you talking with. The key is leader. Yep that's what you're looking for. You're looking for leader man. No question absolutely couldn't agree more biscuit. Great stuff man. I just you could do a lot worse. There comes a point time. What is your commitment level to winning as a front office as an ownership right. Well that had the team president that i'm making it seem like it's not that big of a priority. Well let's hear from him next. We come back. I just it to me. It permeates down. If there's not a commitment way up here it's the same in universities. If the commitment from the athletic director president say just get people in the stands. We don't care you probably won't win right eventually. It'll catch up to ya. You may win a minute. I'm talking about sustained everywhere. Guys like saving michigan state lsu alabama. Utah bowling green utah state and guess wherever guess what happens now dabbles create the same thing if he goes alabama. So guess what he's gonna do yes. He will leadership they know how to lead men and they know how to lead people and manage things and there is a difference. You manage tasks khalid people some misunderstanding. They think you manage people know as the ceo you lead and you don't tell them how to do it. You show them. That's urban meyer. Sports talk seven ninety. We'll come back and discuss. Is that here mc. I want to tell you about where it's at for your shoes. That is with new balance at new balanced greater houston uptown and the woodlands. The two locations get over there today. Start your week off right by seeing the fit specialist getting you into the perfect fit. I was doing a lot of walking around this week. In and guess what i had on my feet when we were doing that.

Fantastic people there to take care of you uptown and the woodlands. It is new balance greater houston sports. Talk seven hundred home of the rockets astros and the best lineup in houston. Sports no back to sean salisbury. Sports talk seven ninety. Would i say i wanted to break. Then i say so. The texans from office guy. Oh yeah rick. Not interrupt for just tweeted out. The saints are expecting drew brees to miss some time to fully hill. Apparently he's having moran. And he has a rib contusion. They're expecting some cartilage damage. Okay and he looked. He looked banged up. And it's unfortunate now. Let me say that. I'm glad you brought that up. I tweet that was a bush league horrible which which ended up the penalty ended up leading to a touchdown it was hit. Hit him in the shoulder. Pad moved his body to the side so he had the ball. And that's it was a and. I'm sorry i'm sorry. Brees got hurt on the play. But that's a tackle. It was a legal professional football. Hit and it was a bush and they waited a second then called. it was horrible. Frigging i don't know if what amounted the game. But it mattered on that series. It was just a terrible terrible terrible. Bush league overprotection all that call and even if you're a saints fan i don't care you can't look me in the face and say that you thought that call was right. It was it's unfortunate. Drew got hurt. Drew was hurt last year. They went five in oak. Ken james winston. Get him some wins because they're going to need it. Because i can promise you. They don't want to go on the road and play in green bay or somewhere in seattle in january. I can promise you that with that the way that offense is set up. You don't want now tell you this that the the backup guy can probably through the win a little bit better the drew brees especially because you if you let him do his thing drew brees going to kill you. But i don't wanna hear anybody tell me that was a cheap hit. Drew brees. No if they can't find the guy was a legal hit that they made illegal because the bush was four illegal especially when his head was up. He saw what he hit. He got his helmet. Nowhere near him. He tackled him in and actually in the middle of the fall. Down moved to the side so it wouldn't fall as whole body. I can't sack a quarterback. That's exactly which you've got about the size of a bullseye to hit and even if you hit that a little too physical on time with call a penalty on that to bush league week and i'm sorry for drew brees. Now the saints are going to be tested again. Teddy bridgewater got himself big money last year because the way he played in five games it'll be coming about you know what james wanted. An opportunity to rebuild himself. Here you go brother on a good team playing with with a maybe the best play caller in the world good team. Let's see what you got and you want to get paid. This is perfect because guess who isn't starting to quarterback next week take some hill. Yeah neither one of them are so. It's a perfect chance right now. You know this was brought to my attention. I heard this yesterday. But i brought it to our attention again. Now set this up for this. Yeah this this is friday. The texans were just talking about how they're run. And you had the trickle down effect and everything goes the presence of the teen longtime press. The team is jamie route. I do not know him. The nice enough guy not going podcasts. He's written a book and what's his new book called the book. It's about leadership or something to do with you know. I can't remember the name of the book. Another southbound i apologize. i don't know what it is. I know if i went to his twin game plan leadership playbook for continued business success. I knew it was a leadership in the dirt. The winning game plan. I knew it said something to do with leadership right so go ahead. People wonder about the texans motivation to win thinking that the front office is only truly cares about dollars that go into their pocket. Well when you have comments like this about the team and they're asking for things this is what opens you up to this and you could not have this come at a worse time. Here's what he said. When i first came to houston every everywhere i went. People said hey jamie houston texas. I don't know columbus. Ohio is like but if you win though come and you lose. They won't come and that's the way it works. I was like well. I'm gonna i. I'm gonna do about that right. We're going to decouple on field success with with support for our business. Fortunately for us worked from day one we'd sold out every game we've ever played. We have a wait list of over thirty thousand. By contrast to houston oilers led the national football league for the most blackouts meaning. They did not sell their games out. And so there's we've just operated very differently than what's been here before that is brutal to listen to for me because you're talking about equating the texans to the oilers. It's so tone. Deaf first of all people have sold out and have a thirst for football because they're terrified that the order the order situation happened again. That's part of the reason why you sell out. The orders didn't sell out for years because they already were on the way out the door and everybody knew it and everybody wanted them out the door because adams was the worst but the whole i mean like that that tells me all you need to know i. I know that you want your business to be successful. Which is fine but if that was your motivation was to get to work. It doesn't matter if we win or lose we're just gonna to make money. That's why people don't believe in you and that hasn't you have no real. You have no idea what the fan base feels about your team. Your tone your clueless. Here's what happens especially when you're two and seven. Nobody wants to hear it right. Here's another thing that happens. Is you get to a point. Where if you want that conversation. You have that with behind the scenes site. Don't let us right. You talked to the public. And how would it work. Better simply saying listen. Our number one goal here has always will be to win championships. Now we haven't got one. We haven't got one yet but our goal every day. When i sit in those meetings and we're we're building selling my book in leadership is to win championships when you in championships. They will come and that will show up. The money comes to that and the money will be there. The goal is not to just sell jerseys and put people in the stands and put product on the field and or in the front office. That doesn't win but because it's texas in its football. We built it. Because mr mcnair built it to a respected organization where now people go and and we don't win but damn people love to come watch us play. I will turn away. We're what oilers were popular. They had no problem selling on games for years. Yes what i can tell them about this. You want to take you to a bunch of cities that sell out games. But their players aren't that their team's not good. There's a lot of those in the nfl. There's a lot of places. Cleveland did it all the time. They're not gonna win this year. But joe burrow's team's gonna keep showing up right. They've been the one franchise that doesn't show up right. But i'm talking about now show up. Yeah why because. They think that they are going to start winning. And what did they always seddon in cincinnati. They didn't believe there's a commitment to the front office. They diminish scouting staff. They didn't have enough. What's marvin lewis for years. Because he was the head coach of the league. They were a cheap paid on the cheap with their front office. People which you knew. Why is fans you get to the point. They're like they're not committed to winning so finally outweighed the fact. Why go now they got borough and you hope that this new coach and the rest is convinced them that it's time to go back to old paul brown mr brown. Mike's dad and say we're going to win again right. Yeah that's that's the philosophy you want. I know. Let me tell you if i say pittsburgh. Newland san francisco kansas city. You're to go through and you know that you know we. Kansas city was struggling. Guess what was still stands. Seventy thousand people ciaran. The people were paid the sometimes and and been a long time since dawson was the priority. Right get to the place kind of like texas and loose and then all the sudden they found this mahomes kid who now we got this head coach and he would get to the playoffs and lose. Been to the super bowl and philadelphia. And then guess. What all of a sudden bingo. Now we win seventy seventh. Guess what's going to happen if you start. Losing seventy seven thousand are still gonna show up. 'cause you built a culture of winning. You have a bad right this. Even this makes you question. Dan fouts told me this years ago. If you can't dazzle them with brilliance baffling with bulls. Okay the kansas city chiefs now are dazzling number brilliant. If all of a sudden they struggled once people are going to say it's okay they can baffling for a year. Because you know what i know. They're committed to winning the problem. Here is that you peed in our face and tell us it's raining. You're admitting what everybody doesn't want to hear that the money and what. You're getting at the The jerseys shown up and buying hotdogs and being there and we've got thirty thousand people wanna guess what you can't good for you right right but you know what keep going forward twelve or just getting to the playoffs and losing the eventually smart people and now with covert situation and you bet. I'd be careful to put that. I'd be careful to throw that out. There have those conversations behind closed sports. Talk seven hundred coming back. Our number four interesting conversation about winning urban meyer stuff. You can find that stuff up on sports. Seven hundred dot com blog too because well. There's a reason why he wins. He's committed to it and if you're not committed to it you cannot sustain it and it starts with the guy who signs the checks sportstalk. Seven ninety whitsett vision dot com. Dr jeff wits. It's my guy. I was tired of having to put on glasses. Our readers and i saw see them pretty good vision but pretty good. It's not what i wanted. Excuse me that's like getting to the playoffs.

I know because i was also a customer whitsett vision dot com whitsett vision dot com former. Nfl quarterback needs longtime friend. Very this is the. Sean sounds very show sports. Talk seven hundred going to get to the guest line here in just a second If you were frustrated yesterday lack of plays offensively and the lack of a a a defense to tackle the stop. Another two hundred yard rushing game between the deepest backfield. How you didn't know they were going to run. The football game long is beyond me. But that's neither here nor there but what is here just a just a little bit a reminder and maybe the front office is listening or worse i know i know but just to remind. Let me set this up. Game looked over. Which should know games ever over and that josh allen taking them back down go down go ahead and a seesaw battle. Back and forth kyla moore. Who i've told you a million times it's going to be an mvp in this league scramble around the play a couple of plays before it was like a ten second play. They've got no time outs left. Did he scrambles again a big play and then he hits a ball to the left sideline they get out of bounce. So they're down to a play and they're out of field goal range in a field goal. Quite frankly doesn't win it because they're down four or five. That was a four points at the time. What was the score at the time. See twenty six to thirty eight twenty down four right okay so kyla murray gets his scrambling business and well. This is an all. Texans fans fell down. Probably like they like go on my guile What's the guy's name in. Oh lamont sanford and son grabbed the tickets running out on me. I imagine it was all sanford and son for those. Who knew what i'm talking about when when this happened off out of the pocket seconds drew and that was i think i in eagle on the call if i'm not mistaken and another thing for those that didn't get to see it. He not going to your right. That seems well not seems is easier for writing a quarterback. He was fallen into the sideline to his left about to run out of room and not only was able to get to the end zone. It's one thing to just get it somewhere. It's another thing to make the perfect trajectory throw with three dudes around the guy with the big pause to goes up and just flat out muslim and grab the ball. Now wait till it got into. His body went up and snatched it with his hands because he has the earned even in a hail mary with hopkins. A ball doesn't hit. The ground legalized theft that arizona. Got this guy from texas for a second round. Pick the collective world in the football world. Like i guarantee their thought wasn't what a great comeback thought was. All the texans are so stupid for doing this right and then what a great comeback into rerun right. It's not going to end back. And what a. Great throw for murray. The catch was spectacular but to buy time and almost step out of bounds. Going to your left and to make that throw and it was the perfect hail mary throw and then and hopkins goes up and does what he always has finishes with the football and his hands our guest house guy. You pry familiar with sags calling from chicago. What's four degrees. It's not four degrees. I think it's supposed to be like forty eight today. So let's guys how's it going. Good how are you doing. what's up. Oh nothing i just you know just just just made me call in. Because it's just like what's the worst thing that happens in houston this weekend. You gotta play just heard roaming of cornell and deck easterby just becoming the team in houston is that james harden wanna now. Is that russell westbrook going on there. You got out at the right time. What's going on here. Let me tell you something. Did you leave when it was groundhog day. Still is did gone to hell. All you need is richard dreyfuss and bill.

I don't know maybe he's going to end up with your bulls who the hell knows who knows harden westbrook gone can't win a game there is a chance. Romeo cornell stays and jack easterby is going to be running the team other than that. Things are awesome here. How about chew things are going good. Things are going good. I just know i. We talked about the fact. That jack gonna take all this power and and run with it. And he's doing more than running he's how he may be the next head coach as well could be. We've seen him acquire he's done drills with wide receivers alzheimer matter of fact if if he gets the job as the head coach. I'm going to join you. Say i'd leave to. I don't know what's headed west to scottsdale to the warm gulf weather. So i'll come you for good meals and see in chicago but no if jack easterby names himself. General manager and head coach.

Just send a stick or something. Yeah we'll just send us an apple in a roadmap we in this city like to give guys away for nothin' so just sent an apple in a roadmap will be happy no prob down our best pizza or something to make sure it's thick crust to from donald's it'd be fine or malnati's whoever you want to send it from little take it fair enough. Good all right we miss. We miss you stay. Stay with your man sakes. That's adam sagar. Yup he couldn't wait. He couldn't resist calling in to get a dig in cutty. I mean at better for this has been like we keep talking about thinking about like this has been the worst year of houston my life and this includes a year. The astros were one game away from playing the world series again. This has been the worst year of my life as a houston. Sports fan voted right everything. Yeah i mean literally the only hope right now is the astros the only thing going well and they had a losing record in the sixty game regular season last year and they had everything go wrong. They did play for the world series. And they're about to lose george springer. Yeah they're going to come out and don't have ver- lander they're still the biggest story right. They're going to be next year to win the division which is unbelievable. And i i'm serious. I'm it's november the sixteenth. And i know that my thing is baseball. Heartburn counting the days i need it back in my life because the only thing cleanse my palate is usually. Please don't let spring training like not. We're not allowed to go. Please don't please don't work the weather on a florida all that great weather. Please don't let this prevent us from going in person to spring training. Don't do that this time around about the mt curious. As you mentioned it's been just wants to get worse or are we going to start saying that. There's this hour on the team. It's a sports antique her always matt. Thomas curses everything. So i got on this past season. He's around the rockets enough. He called their games. D'antoni mike was guy. Mike's out so you're blades. James about blaming it on matt thomas sits. Let's get to ride ride. What's up and i was just listening to some of the Talk about cleveland. Not running the ball and just collar. Murray's how important is collar. Murray second year being good and not just a flash in the pants like a lot of these guys come out read option. You gotta get a is. He proved himself. That may be the best short quarterback coming out way more than baker. Mayfield and that franchise ryan. Thanks for the call. Answer that i could tell you now and baker mayfield's we're still trying to decide if he's a franchise guy but they line they like him in cleveland. The friendly and they do now. There's some fans who want more from it but and they're six and three. So they're they're playing lesson. There's not ten quarterbacks in the league you would you would the cuyler. Murray put the and go through a shortlist guys today if i said i'm building my team for the next seven to ten years kind of murray's analyst short shortlist say i told you i two years ago when he was playing before he went into his final year before he was drafted. We even on this show. I said he should play baseball. First round pick five tool player and then all of a sudden. I started at the of the season i watched. I would watch games and i finally went back and chose three or four games. I want to go back and watch him to see. If i'm missing some and i miss something because instead of sale fourth round then you start to watch. Ooh whoa whoa arm. Those capable people kept talking about durability count because murray was never beat up. The worst thing happened to him when he came up was transferred schools. He's to get skinny and he gets small dead. I went back and watch it. Not only and i said it on this show and you remember and i said it. I said they need to trae. Josh rosen tomorrow cliff and you go get you go. Get connery now. And you'll never look back. I think he's going to be an mvp and league. Not forget short quarterbacks. For i don't care if he's six four five nine the guy's a playmaker. He will win a division. He may win that damn division this year. He doesn't lose their. It's like we talked about coaches dna. Everywhere he goes he wins high school college and he's got he hasn't been on the field two full years and he's already got them in first place in the division that divisions got great teams all of them flaws. That's exactly right. And you know what great quarterbacks can overcome flaws assegai and seattle and he might have the best his. I'm telling you they have. They don't have a great defense right but they have good enough player to five years from now. You'll be talking about watson mahomes you're not getting to the fifth guy matter. I've said it all your to give me marie or lamar jackson. I said after post. Mvp for lamar jackson. I've been saying ear if you said draft one or the other one who you take and right now. I'm taking kyla murray. I said at the beginning of your. And i like lamar jackson. Kylie's better passer period coming back. Sports talk seven ninety yes. He is special in arizona's and cliffs great clips great for him and it's the greatest thing for cliff cliff would have gone someplace. That didn't implement what he did. Combine cuyler did. It may be different story. It's the best of both worlds. And he's gonna keep his gig and get a new contract because of it too good thing to have sports talk seven ninety john salads berry show continues on seven ninety and continues in your own say alexa play sports. Talk seven ninety on iheartradio talk seven hundred ninety s going through. Mcu mentioned about cuyler. Murray just to put a bow on this conversation with him his sack totals last year. Forty eight led the league and he's under he's got thirteen through nine games so so through nine games right so let's say he gets to ten more twenty three per year really good county. We asked the shawn watson much. Somebody somebody tell me again about calories durability apparently that have played all the time yeah damn near every. Snap man spectacular. Play that'll be one for the highlight reel for a long time going to his left across his body and makes the perfect throw while the catch will be the one we talk about the thrill the throw was putting the only position that you had a chance to get it and hop finished as he always does. I think that's the most impressive thing about tyler is like you said he's fallen alabama's looking like that's a aaron rodgers style. Throw from a dude who is five eight on day and let me tell you to be able to talk your body in position to make that throw while you're literally falling into the to the the left side line was that the opponent sideline in my opinion. I don't know what side of the field but going to his left. he literally was falling in it. Felt like he was falling into the stands right and and put it this way one more step the guys out of bounds before he throws it and to be able to torque his body clock running out. I think there was what two seconds left after the catch. Right there were there was nothing. There was nothing left to do after that. And no timeouts on the clock masterful play. And that's why you work on those and that's why you put your best receiver back there. Who can jump and got the long reach and a big hands to go up and loves to catch the ball. The ball needed on that one. So hodges now eight years old. That was career catch yesterday number. Six ninety nine that touchdown catch nice. So he'll be at seven hundred with his next catch early in the next game at the age of twenty good players old for pretty good player and the hits. Just keep on as you said about the city this year. And he's at sixty hopkins's sixty seven rate sixty one through nine games nine games. Just take away that per game assays average sick. What seven catches a game. Seven time seven would be forty nine seven more ba. Fifty six seven catches game. Right right is that about right. So bad game last week against the seahawks from two catches so it was the miami games. Three forty nine more catches on top of that gives them. He's on pace for his main. Typical season about fifteen hundred yards. And he's got how many cats right now. Sixty seven okay so it catches fifty more balls. You're talking about one hundred. One hundred seventeen catches de his average his as for one hundred nineteen catches one. Thousand five hundred thirty one yards. And which will be double digits touchdowns to seven touchdowns okay. So there's only four touchdowns which is so weird. He should be catching more right. They're throwing the ball around and get. It shouldn't bother anybody because they're winning. That's exactly right part of that. Lerve and meyer unselfish stuff. We discussed and that we discussed after hearing him on. Fox talk about that talk about that the other day. Jj watt was frustrated moving forward. I'm anxious to. We've been saying for weeks now. The duke johnson should get more. Here's what the shawn watson said about. Johnson's game. Yesterday ran the ball hard and he did what he had to do to try to continue to have positive yards and get first downs and big play so do cladding very good game protect the ball and he's just going to continue to you. Better couch make very good at it I enjoy very much. okay Let's go to baker mayfield on the running back. Duo which the texans new yesterday that they were going to run it and according to romeo we he said we they ran into i and we did our job and shut them down and then we knew they were going to run it in the second half and we didn't do our job because we were trying to make plays okay. Here's what baker mayfield said about. Well they're running back duo corinne. He brings that tempo that the electric runs to us. Nickel break those off and make long runs but kareem you know the energy he brings into the huddle He's constantly talking to different people. I think that's the great part about it. So cream brings energy into the huddle continues to fight off tackles and just doesn't care what happens is really wants to win in any way which is the same way but It's just great to see how they both lead in two very different ways and the weather come into play yes wind can affect and when we say emceed. You'd asked me this during the break about. Does the wind affect the throw. The wind not only affects the throw into it but it also affects it with it too much win with an i used to hate it because of ball the point stays up and you if you don't wanna overdose so you know what you're doing you short armitt thrown right. And then i'll try to find and then trajectory changes and always quarterbacks into the wind just the your lower half the exposure. You can't try to overthrow it because the balls all over you gotta drive it through there but it's got to be your mechanics. Can't change some guys try to overthrow. The ball ends up wobbly and all over the place. Well nick. Martin the texans offensive lineman on if the weather affected their game. Now i don't think it did. They actually did a great job. You're in cleveland. Given the field right you could tell the inside. Ashes will replace before the game So the field is in good shape. Do you think about just the delayed and that throw you off and all you guys to go in and have to wait thirty five minutes to start. I don't think so. I think that's perfect. World professionals I mean we don't like the delay especially after the anthem and the hail juices flowing pretty high guy. People go different situation. Start the game again. Like than ready to go whenever that's as most answering ingo that's no excuse on a weather. No excuse on the delay. Although we're all trying to seem wilt people trying to create it for no excuse okay. And he's a pro and he's exactly right and had him talk more. Just ask him the questions about now. Play better to write. He knows it and he knows it but at least he didn't sit there and say well the weather protection product. No slide right so what. You're pro so they get paid to do great answer now. The goal line fourth. And two i am. I'm always baffled. When you don't get to the perimeter with the run pass. I i just don't understand it. I just don't unless you're the tesa milled. Cam newton that power inside run game. Power zone quarterback power zone most teams. Don't have that guy to do that right. See get some to create edge. I still you know what i always like to is. The you know the option pitch fake fake sweep revert reverse pivot and you fake it to one guy and pitch it to the option guy because it freezes them and when you got guys going different ways people freeze and then you can get contained at least let the guy get to the edge. I liked that. And i also like my quarterback getting to the edge. Because there's a four way break you've got three two or three receivers and then you've got the option to run and dive and make a play. At least you have when you run it. In between the tackles with a quarterback whose escape ability is usually east and west and they're not exactly dominant up front in the interior. It makes it makes a difference. Here's what john watson have to say on being stuffed on fourth and two. I mean they did a good job of of stuff. I was trying to find an alley. And a whole. Now's made a good play of of redirecting play. How about this to offset the coachspeak. Let's listen to baker mayfield on myles garrett. They made great player in the needed. To i think miles took the approaching. No real g's movement. Silence like lasagna. Why can't we have that. He's like baker lawn. yeah. Baker is a great line. I'm going to tell you real gs workout though to say it real. G's move in. Silence like lasagna. He woke up yesterday morning. Thinking i gotta get this in post game. I got to get this in. And right delays all that stuff means bowl teams are delayed but if we can say well as one team more equipped to play on it than the other. Well i watched that same. Cleveland browns team two weeks ago. Let the oakland raiders. Beat their brains in. Even though the score didn't indicate it physically manhandled them on the road. And the raiders. Play in vegas. They're not supposed to be equipped to handle either. Nobody's really equipped to sit there and go out and have a deluge and the winds blowing sideways. Of course not. she's like golfers. Don't like it either but if you practice outdoors maybe you do. Green bay deals with a cold. Maybe because they practice outdoors when it's freezing out but in game like that love nick martin's answer. No no. He's we we're pros. Baker mayfield actually talked about the difference. Between the raiders. Game in this game in which was worse if really affected them and basically he said this game was worse but for them they just practicing and they're used to it and they are on the whole key dominate. The when you bad weather you'd better be set. I always talked about teams setup for january. If you don't like cleveland for any other reason i can tell you this the problem in january because they can disrupt the passer on defense and they're run game keeps them in games on offense. They are set up for january because of that very reason because they can run it. Just like tennessee. If they get to january they become scary. They're not the most gifted teams but they get the january. They're scary because it doesn't matter what what what whether you throw at them. Turn and give it to the big fella field. They can control it and their quarterback can have a day. Yeah even if you don't love them they can still have. They both had days no questions. Sports talk seven ninety. Sean south thirty more minutes to go here on our opening of a monday here in november and post loss monday. We've say say that a lot sports socks seven hundred.

I've seen it's like if you've ever had braces herbal thing that you have to bite into. That's miserable never has raised. Okay and then they. It fit your teeth perfectly. But i mean just probably say mass cup well might just grill up. I wonder if i could pull with up. Keep the akita spit coming out. My gosh what are you guys. Thanksgiving's coming up right. Yeah you guys got something that you that people have that. you can't stand at thanksgiving cranberries. The why though. I think you know what i got to come clean with you though. I know you love them. No but i gotta come clean with you on your side. Do you realize the first four years of my life yet. nope. I think i've never hat. We didn't put him on a table we always had see. But we don't have like real cranberries. We did see. Does the big slice it. It's like the blob. Sit there you've got to slice it off instead of like the the the one that you could get the somewhat fresh where it's like make it looks like yeah where it's like. It's the spread right. Cranberry just read like on top of the cream. Cheese crab or just a blob of where be like fatty acids it's grows. It's like blizzards fantastic. Wait i'll be really dipasupil know jello. What do we call that cranberry. You're right though that fresh out of the blocks out now. Look that endeavour deviled eggs. My family is huge. on deviled. eggs cannot stand really cold. Cranberry sauce the homemade. The right way. I could put that on a i like gravy on turkey more than anything good gravy the like the gravy. The stuffing some people caught dressing. I call it. Stuffing gravy stuffing The mashed potatoes. they all kind of It's just a. It's just a free for all. I don't care if they some people are going that. Thank you agreed. Now those cranberries on a sandwich the the the turkey. I do the fresh crab. Not out of the blob like you're talking. You can even take time to cut the damn thing. So i gotta have that but do the deviled eggs is a must. I gotta have them. But it's not at the dinner. It's the orders. Lighten up to eleven o'clock on while the macy's parade which i don't even know ashes year. This year were handled to texans blinds on thanksgiving day. Yes if the staff that's going to be watching if your defense bet if the the lions road for a buck sixty on your ass. You know you might. You might be in real trouble. But i don't think we have the may stay for macy's day for it so that's at mid-morning when you're watching around ten thirty eleven out that those fresh right out of the refrigerator because you made earlier in. They're sitting there in the morning and they're cold. I'll do not kill a deviled egg man. Yeah you like eggs normally right. Oh love eggs. I had you know. I made eggs right and you look freak. Saline made that yesterday. So josh so cranberries and what about at the meal. The main substance meal. Get rid of the exit. get rid of the cranberries. Is there some that people have like. Are you a candied yam guy or just leave. I don't like mellows in miami. I don't mind the sweet potatoes. I love sweet potatoes marshmallows in them. I don't mind that to me marshmallows around the desert side. If i'm putting a but i'm a whip cream on my pie with ice cream. I don't need candy. I love him but at thanksgiving. I don't want i don't know why but marshmallows to me. Don't mix in with my potatoes at christmas. I don't like thanksgiving see. I think they taste good but i. I don't think it's necessary and i can understand. Why would i want marshmallows and my thanksgiving dinner. I was also going to say. I looked up. What is considered the worst thanksgiving food in his starts off with the canned. Cranberry whatever you wanna call it. Yeah cam like slicer own not good. Yes by far the leader in the clubhouse. I'll say though. I think it's not bad food. But my least favorite thing or is it doesn't make sense thanksgiving mac and cheese. I feel like it's hey let's add something else. I can have mac and cheese. Day of the week out. Needed thanksgiving thanksgiving's when i want to go all out and get stuff. I don't normally have. I got to come clean. I do like having mac and cheese around although it. Sometimes it's one of those parts of it. You know homemade. Good mac and cheese and it has been home. May exactly because. I'll put some like some spicy. Like yeah and i like to put like red hot on it or a good spy. Do i like spicy mac and cheese or if you like a seafood mac and cheese mix if you wanna put that. I'm okay with that. But i tell you. It's not the first four things i reach for the. Oh by the way dish for me yeah. It doesn't scream. Thanks giving but it's almost always there to everyone we don't ever have and i. It's not on my list is obviously. Turkey is obviously mashed potatoes and gravy Obviously some sort of roll orange role. That guy sometime melt in your mouth some sort of good role right he even if you go to the hawaiian roll out of the bag out of the box. Delicious when you warm up a little butter on whatever that i gotta have stuffing guy got to And how you make it so you got for me. I also have to have the cream corner that cream corn. Who do like a jalapeno right. So do i make a new sticking the slow cooker and then i have a four cheese green bean casserole the it sits forever and then you bake it and it's just the cheese melted on top. You've got four cheese inside the layered with along with a long string beans and the one thing that can have does taste good to me. Even though i don't i prefer homemade is that i can live with green beans out of a can. They actually don't say you. Tuck them into something else. You gotta put the bank exactly to dress them up but make that too so that green so there's about five or six things now anything great mac and cheese. I don't add extra media. i don't. I don't have ham. I don't go to somebody's house you do but when i cook it at home i have a fried turkey and a regular the old school where you just stick. Like fried or deep fried. I'm talking about two different kinds of turkey's but i have had prime rib and hammer christmas for me. See we have a nice family. It's turkey and ham. Always for thanksgiving always have both and then for christmas. Most of the time it'll be turkey and ham again so it's like we kinda just in. We're we're those people but we are not ham. People we are family only has now. I'd say my started bringing him into it. But usually christmas thanksgiving easter. It's turkey turkey or see for me modestly. It's turkey at different types of turkey. No ham usually my me now. I've been most people may have but at christmas time it's ham and my son. My chef son still makes to this day accounting any restaurant. I've ever been the best prime rib. Now it's a lot of it is how were you get it right but how cooked it is a the sauces. He homemade is the best prime. Remember so prime rib and ham for christmas but we don't have prime rib and ham in my home for dinner. We have different kinds of turkey. Isn't it weird. How people have traditions. They they don't deviate from right so certain you're no eggs are out for you on the order. Macaroni cheese out for you. Putting putting the can putin marshmallows on my sweet potato at thanksgiving. I know it's a regular occurrence for many. I ain't doing marshmallows on my sweet potato all have dessert after thanks we also have a quote unquote breaking news. Woche trade with the nets hold. That thought. we'll get back not drinking. okay okay. there's there's another dude ruin. Be going to break. Yes we wouldn't that would be delayed. We're coming right back at sportstalk. Let the celebrations start more. John salads berry on sports. Talk seven one. Will you eat most of on thanksgiving mc when all is said and done. Forget the leftovers. I'm talking about that day. If you go back for seconds dyke right after you just take potatoes. Everything in the mashed potatoes eventually every. I'm not sure a lot of times. It may not be even the turkey go back for seconds whereas like maybe the mashed potatoes and stuff and turkey. You know and people love to get all. I love turkey. My i see. I'm like my family will be. They'll get like two points. The first time. I get one big play pilot high but then i take off like and i'm a piece of pie or whatever Take off for like two hours food for like two hours or jump back at it. Yeah i'm right back to our great. I'm not you can't go and eat like four points the first time because then you're not gonna eat again. I'm one of them. But i wanna to eat two or three times right but when i go back for seconds to seattle when i say pile my plate i don't wanna piled so high that i don't wanna go back for seconds right away right so the second time like you do and say okay. Give me one little more piece of turkey stuffing. I know we didn't matter. I cannot believe. Mcs me says we'll thanksgiving. I said well it's in two weeks actually sixteen. That's next thursday.

Screening the we. That's the oldest one the Good morning guys doing good to talk to you. Good to see you breaking news. James harden hasn't been trade yet. Won a shot yeah. Rusty westbrook has an e either jimmy and rusty. That's uncalled shock. Yeah klay thompson out for the year. Kelly oubre may texas act to golden state james harden. Today's still here by the way you james harden still here yeah. i bet. He's still here monday when we come back to the show monday. What do you think. I think you're probably right. I think i think the the rockets are gonna be going to camp here when camp start like the first week of december doesn't it for opening on december twenty isn't it the first ten days of december. I didn't make my my phone for nba schedule. Stuff i never have well. This feels like you need to keep. Because i okay like bingo bongo one after the other right i'm trying free agency starts today today today. Like five or six. What a weird time to start free agency a friday at six whole thing's nuts. The here we are. James harden still here which is good. You don't need to be sitting here worrying about not having him right now. Your team is built to win this season. So i'm gonna keep saying hold onto him for that reason and also so you can get the best possible package back your fridge. These five. This evening negotiate. Weird friday why so. We can't comment on. Players can sign their contracts starting the twenty second at twelve or eleven. Am central time. And then they report to camp I they want to the you know. The rockets want or build around james harden in case. You didn't know that. John news. I've been told. Yeah that's the word on the street. I think both are going to stay now. i do. Wow let's see how free agency goes today if we get. I think if you're gonna get somebody with the mid level exception has day you get and you get news. That happens quickly. It's not something that ways around. I would assume by but that's not a guarantee you get somebody at the format level than they're staying. Isn't it odd that we're waiting for a mid level guy to decide if we're keeping superstars and that strange yeah. I usually take direction the team. Just such a trip and We're living in twilight zone. There's no question because these are never supposed to be things that we talk about here. The possibility of this guy being just never happens. They're still general. Feeling of people think he's in hardens out any traded. We'll see but people been right before people also been wrong before on these this type of thing right yeah. i don't. I really don't know how to gauge it anymore. Because does he wanna stay. Does he wanna go. He definitely probably wants to know. I mean that's kind of a you know. Just throw it out the questions that have been asked throughout the money turning down. You'd think that automatic the second somebody turns down that they want to go yet instead of turning down. Turn out fifty. You're gonna make forty seven forty eight somewhere else right yeah. I don't know the frustration. Either you're waiting for two thousand and twenty to say okay. This is one thing that you're gonna love about the sports city. You get my point where it's like okay. This is a decent man okay. They're both staying in. They're gonna keep on kicking button even if they do. It's not going to be pleading right but more pleasing than because there's going to be tension a ton of it. You think there's going to be tension you hold up here is going to be you know russ is gonna show play like in plays ass off in terms. Oh yeah i'm not worried about that. That's never question becomes james. He's got so much pride. That james malcontent and i still don't think he will be. I don't think. I think he'll have to deal with the questions. And i'd be. I would be interesting to see how he answers them help. Why and he'll be normal james on the floor. Yeah i'm wondering how mean side we're gonna wake up and it's going to be that the brooklyn nets gave a half their franchise other than two dudes for him with a bunch of draft picks. You know to me there. Better be a again a thirteen in that. Yeah because i. I just not interested in their players unless it's career katie. Coming back get either one of those. Not and i'm still trying to figure out a for us. Westbrook goes what are you getting. Who who's who's the player. Who's a player in this. John wall by the way just won't let you got city got another first round pick by the way. Yeah protect their there yet but it sounds like it'll mean they make the playoffs go to them protected. First round pick On the twenty eighth bits first round pick over the next four years young players. I don't like i said yesterday. Ladies and gentlemen. Here's how the draft goes for the next four years oklahoma city oklahoma city with a third new orleans the city it's do orleans every oklahoma. Yeah it's like okay you guys quarter the market of the draft to get a whole bunch Got a whole bunch of assets. And its but here. It's the frustration of i. Don't like the unknown when it comes to my sports teams. I guess not that they're doing this for me. That could care less. But i don't like the unknown of no one who are. I don't like the unknown and on it football wise if jack's really going to be overseeing this saying he's not going to get a good. Gm you're not. Are you going to handle the right guy now right well. Okay like. I believe like i said i don't like look. I don't like one one foot over with no trampoline on the bottom to catch me or net right when it's i don't mind taking a risk but at least let me know that there's three names you've taken a risk for who's involved calculated risk. I don't like that. No one who the head coach. They're going to interview. I don't like not knowing. If hardens commoner. Listen ideal. Easier for me if you just say. Hey we're taking off right. We were sending would russell and james gone okay now. I know how to fix this thing. When i say that i know lisa we can start. At least we can start getting some direction but when it's hanging in the balance those keep them go if you're not gonna keep them. Don't sit there and hang. Let's get rolling on. The season starts. Same thing football the throw some names. Let's get some names on the table. Now they don't always any obligation sure. We contain the names. We think it's going to be. But i guarantee they have five names between the coach and general manager that you wouldn't even think twice about guaranteed guaranteed for. Yeah there's no of course they do. Twelve hundred trust them. That's my point and say when you're looking at direction there's a par-five blind shot. I know i got to hit it out there. I don't know where the hell i'm supposed to hit the ball and or you can show you can't quite see as their bunkers and training. You don't have a dog on yardage book like okay. I'm gonna hit up there. But what if there's a little pond to the right and left. And i got to see and i don't know where the direction of the rockets are texans franchises. Nogo a pretty good idea. What burbach you're running around with wine. It's true it is. It's an hitting hitting a blind shot into par-five and you have zero idea. If there were the bunkers are where the potholes and been a fairway. You know what. I'm saying we're trying to place about hit and you don't know the distance either. Twelve percent of first round picks over the next six years. will be made by the oklahoma city. Thunder that's wild. Eleven point six exactly rounded off to twelve percent. Think about that. Twelve percent of the drove the six years. I'm gonna go ahead and say they're not gonna make all the pigs. I'm gonna say you're probably right. They're going to be trained if you would say for up for the The veteran player or there's no doubt they're not making all the pixel china. They still got to do something out horford. Maybe they'll find somebody to take that to get a first-round pick for him. Say that to loudoun what they'll say. I'm just getting over the rockets. Say what you said somebody enough to make that pick. Don't say it too loud. Hopefully that raphael stones. He's not but it just just money on bring more money back now. Let's take out horford. Like what thirty million dollars a year. It's good to be al horford. Isn't it sure let's horford thirty four something like that. They're thirty years old and his contract is pushing thirty million. Twenty eight twenty nine million. It's cost guy to three more years at twenty seven and a half twenty seven and twenty six and a half. He signed that in his mid thirties. Coming off a scenery average thirteen points again. It's so good to be him. A what a done and think about it. it's all his dumb contracts all his good for him. I don't hate him. no i don't want. I may not want to and i remember. We're taking five six years ago remember. How good horford was in the postseason than i mean how. Saudi was in a body that people wanted to now signs. That big contract and really. He's just a guy making thirty million a year. Yeah think about that. I love to live life foods agent. That's what we all need to know right deal in the playoffs for the sixers. Issue averaged seven point again. Let's see that makes it well about four million dollars point. His last year was deals. Only only half of its guaranteed so either ways in a walkaway fourteen and a half million. Yeah his four years one hundred. Nine million narcan fifteen million dollar golden parachute to begin about eight points a game. Just just get to double digits right digitally ten. That'd be that'd be important to me. It would all right today. We got our specs pick of the week in an our. I'm going to go. i'm gonna probably soup. I don't know if it's a surprise. But i'm no hell no not picking them a game plan going or the pac twelve councillors. They play utah. Utah hasn't played a game yet. So there's a good chance they bay dot play by the today sales and no. I wouldn't pick them even if they put it this way. The only way. I got a chance when it comes to a point spreads with us because they always disappoint me. There is during a bi week. If i pick them in a bye week. I got a shot true. Even though they're playing may who knows who knows raza right now the z. Utah game is on yes. We'll see john clayton four downs in it. Russell wilson gets his team back into the you know to the hunt with a win last night sports. Talk seven ninety mid week. Parlays are good late week. Parlays like the under seattle and taking tulsa by five and a half or whatever it was they had a good night good night. I'm question as a good saturday. A candy could be and sunday sportstalk. Seven ninety the group here. More sean salisbury. Gedeon strappy in and writing. I wonder if there's other teams that are down with the houston rockets. A ho. pp are there. Other people are down with the or the texans being a disaster in the vision. You narrow down with opium me. What do you think about this cut. Josh you feel pretty good about this cut talking about we were now this cut right here. John played damn thank. You better be all right with it thinking of audio cut so i know what you're old school the like the cut master saying this is you know things l. p. p. josh. Don't tell him mc. I don't know who's things you guys. Don't other things. I wanna see anybody. Suck it josh suck it make sure you didn't guliani blank page right now. It's good good. Beat naughty by nature down with. I think that brooklyn's down with oh i ideal i actually. Yeah james might be down with brooklyn's. I mean brooklyn did that. That could be down with other people's property to right getting there to brooklyn. what are they. How many points game do they score of james's at brooklyn now. Do they lead the nba. Easy that system. They gotta average one twenty five game. What was it like leading average team last year. Like a buck. Twenty two or something eighteen. Fuck eight eight break. Push hundred twenty. Yeah you're talking about you're talking about three dudes averaging between twenty four and thirty points a game. Probably right. We say that. And then we've seen instances where they have just like nineteen three teams those teams those three guys that can do it and then they have nobody else right like that'd be my question. Yeah they get they get seventy night between them and then. The team scored thirty two. Yeah type again. Yeah but they would. They would obviously be the lead dog and my thought process especially with klay thompson. Al the mavericks. A playoffs are regular season milwaukee on seventeen point eighteen months. Seventeen that let it. I got one eighteen point seven. Check your number. Check your sites for valuable his stat sites. The rock won seventeen. This is according to espn on. Espn i trust espn minds. Just team rankings. Okay so free agency does kick in. I'm trying new okay. So free kicks in. Who's the biggest free agent available right. Now anthony davis go a d. But well i said available. I said available. It's tra- we. He's got that he's gone out of his driveway and make it a u turn right back into it. He english driving down the staple center right. He had to drive the staple center. Thanks somebody else. That's exactly bill are home. Whatever the hell it is yeah. He's not going anywhere. So i said look rephrase it. Who's the biggest free agent phrase. Probably intrude that it probably is vanfleet. It probably is mantras harrell former rocket. Yeah i guess. He's i mean good solid player. I'm looking at the energy gallagher. The hoops hype rankings. Second is brandon ingram. But he's restricted. He'll be back in new orleans guy. He's not going anywhere either. Danilo gallinari guy. So there's a three not leaving davis ingram. Stay at davis stays serge ibaka. We've talked about him in his name. Popped up in. Somebody would mind. Having here. davis bertans k. Gordon hayward is now free agent thirty four million dollars. He's stupid he must know something. We don't you probably multiple years more. That's all he's got to be sure he can get a long term deal. Yeah where new york apparently really interested in talking about the the next that makes sense. I can i can. I can understand that. But he gordon hayward do you want to go get the money you want to go win because remember when they probably want to go win i would think right i want you just go back to utah. Now you call it. Got the money and he would be. He would be good for them. Yeah now though. They loved him there and he played great rental. He played his best batting great here. We'll bring him up. I know which is a bummer. To like him darrell. Who's that more. Yeah he's a really good player. He's never gonna be your number one but he's a guy that can schools. That's the problem staying on the court. I mean at the rockets could find an avenue to get to him. I would investigate it right. Yeah but to turn down the money. He turned down means. Longer more security somewhere else but i gashed to go from one. You get that. I understand if you've won two or three championships and you say okay. I got my ring now. I'm just gonna go milk the pay for a while but if it's the opposite and you haven't been on the court when you're getting your championships and the chip to call it. The chip you know you gotta get it when you want to chip but if you've got some chips and you say we'll let me go get some coin then if you no. If you've got the coin wanna chip. You'd think well let me go find someplace that maybe i'll take a little less to play for championship but most guys don't take less problem but good player. So you're right so hayward vanfleet ingram's going out the md you can forget that he stays as whiteside solid. I mean good. Teams are body right portland. Stop playing him yeah. There's something wrong with his no. He plays his labrador miami. When everybody held him in such high regard early on remember he came out like boom. Yes say rockets. g. league player whiteside was. Yeah we'll done. Bogdonovich is a free agent. Were just talking about him. Didn't you put him in. Our ta-talk wasn't in one of the top. Now davis never mind. Yeah bogdonovich name that continues to get thrown around a of teams. So there's you know there's a there's eight to ten pretty solid players. There's some solid like you said. Vanfleet knows no. There's the well. Anthony davis is the guy but he's not leaving. Excuse me but you know. Vanfleet gives you great experience. Hardcore competitor is good. Good good player to have. There's not one guy on here. The changes your franchise around. There's one guy that can add to it though. I mean meaning. There was a handful of those guys. Like gordon hayward like a fred van vliet like a gallon are that can not only give you minutes but also give you some pretty like i like. I thought that with losing clay toughs uber as a good fit for gold state average about nineteen points a game. Seven six seventy interesting. I mean they have andrew wiggins to yes now. The question is he's never lived up to his draft hype wiggins hasn't some of his scorings been empty honest to get in. How bad t right exactly. So the question is does does wiggins game now. There's still chance they move him but now they're they're about one hundred. Think about this man. They still have. They got that they still have the you know an an one. I didn't really pay attention to but realized yesterday. They got a nine million dollar the the injuries. No the injury accepts. Yeah but they all expire pretty quickly right so they gotta jump on it but they have that option right now and you know you don't think about like hey we're gonna awards you a nine million dollar injury exception forty year players goes out as out for the season and claes lost for the season with the achilles so be a second straight year so they do have about a nine. It's a little over nine million dollars exception with this injury and people say well will they wanna pay it. Think about this now. You want to talk about a commitment to winning. Do you know that they're about fifty million dollars in local texas. They're over one hundred one hundred one hundred million up over over it for years and yeah and they just keep they just keep bob. Myers you talk about guys like this is a good gig to get. Yeah i just keep going player so doing that for them. I mean they're they're like even with cloud instead of saying well. They have no problem spending. So they're they have a couple. You talked about the exception. They got the trade exception. They got the injury exception if they want if they want to keep paying money if the owner wants to but million as well be a million twenty right why not. You know what i'm saying. One hundred twenty million so it is the commitment there but some of these names and depending on if you wanna get over a luxury tax or not but there's some there's some good players that can help a team but there isn't that one marquee free agent anthony davis but he's like i said he's that house is he's not he'll be wearing the same jersey number that he wore in los angeles in the same uniform and the young going anywhere. So it's it's kind of curious to see but there are some wonder i anxious in the next handful well today in the next twenty four hours to see what the rockets do with this once agency it and if somebody's going to make the call and if and if we get the news over the weekend that by the way brooklyn came into play. You know it'll drive you nuts but then at least in brooklyn if it happens it happens but if it happens all it has to be a three team deal right because there's just no way that the two teams matchup no the canon. I'm wondering who the third team in the deal. Is you define a team. That's willing to give them. They have to get something that they want. That's difficult yeah. The third teams the. We'll make sure you to her happy but we'll just be the team left out you've got to have somebody to get something that they want as well. Yeah that's a notch detaille major participant in just from the outside and it doesn't seem like these two teams. It's going to be a deal for a player to the rockets right because the draft picks aren't gonna come from brooklyn right and a player that that matters. Yeah right so good luck with that right. That's almost impossible to figure out if you're the third i mean we're like i said you go around saying well who who would jump into this fray don't know who the third team is but you can't i don't see how it's feasible these teams along can make this deal are calling unless you're unless you're just like near the rockets and you give away call me crazy. They've zero zero about them. The clippers paul. George yeah maybe. I don't think that it would take a y. Maybe saying do this but that thing soured so badly at the end of the season. They're both very similar players. Maybe they think we add james harden to kawai after a year where because all of a sudden they get their backs up against the wall of. We're losing. la the lakers. And i got well. And that's that matters to them. They just the same as the opposite. The lakers didn't like losing any. Yeah those shares are those that that pledge fans to the clippers which they did through some of these tough times before lebron got there. I'm just telling you fact. And but with. Paul george politics p. wasn't very russ in paul george in houston could happen after they play together and okay see playoff. Call paul playoff. He playoff p. Was playoff the heater slippers. Pick situation. I don't think i don't think they have a lot of pigs. Give you. i'm just trying to think of players that are see you're talking about the third player. Gets it the clippers. Come and steal james to get him to los angeles as opposed to brooklyn. Yeah and paul. George is involved in that. Yeah there have been very quiet. Haven't i have it with a new coach to interesting. That's kind of team. I have to a lot of times. Teams lay low on that. Little pop up. You know what. I mean the team that the rise readymade deal with. I keep saying portland. Mccullough's contract makes it work. I could see the rockets same. We'll take all the pics more picks plus mccollum. I could see that kind of scenario being a real. That's kind of player. They forget he a lillard before that. That'd be fun for exactly. i love it. That'd be sports. Talk seven ninety. We'll go big one in Low poll question next on a friday sports. Talk seventy hundred. Now back to sean salisbury. Quick question one question. One question is the big one being question of the day. On the sean salisbury show sports talk seven hundred ninety the big one of the day and our poll question. I was just thinking about that article. You just sent me about the golden state warriors and klay thompson. Fishing suggestion the suggestion that you get. You call portland you call. Houston you call. Washington heathrow in picks wiseman and uninjured klay thompson and trade him for you know take on other picks other money and and gulf sorry. I'm not trading for an injured klay thompson. No he's missed. Two straight years of basketball it will be two straight years one with the left knee. Acl and the other with a right achilles ended in the kind of a big deal. And what's his number one strength shooting. And how does he get open. He's a run you off the screens catch and shoot. I'm not interested in got towards nancy. Employees may never play again if he does play again. He may not even close to the same doctor. Says he's gonna make a full recovery. But i'm gonna tell you right now about. This is the grind mentally one seasons enough. When you're the rehab when you're getting through it the physical part and then you hit a wall and then you break through it and you feel good and you see quantum leaps and he's a competitor and he'll get but then to come back and you your pumped up you're like okay here. We go. And then i'm telling you it's it's it's a five times worse. Injury aquiles the knee. Pick a guy. Sports say at tennis player a golfer basketball player football player said torn shredded. Acl or achilles shredded achilles. I'll say every every day and twice. I don't want anybody to do it. But i went through a period. Where like strange really bad. That took two months for it to just stop hurting. This is a year injury and you can hear that. Thinks i've been around people. When you hear an achilles go it's a gut wrenching so the pain that go through. But the i'm telling you the mental grind of being out of your sport two years in a row let alone overcoming man. My acl was tough enough. Now you gotta deal with an achilles and now you know it all starts to creep in. I'm just telling you to creep in for nine robson and that's the klay thompson. Let's throw him in for the big one. Will he ever be the same player coming off this injury. These two injuries. Let's put that that there. Is that too insensitive. Now it's just it's it's a real question i ask. I mean he's a he's what third thirty or thirty one now a see. I think he's thirty one years old or he's going to be he'll be thirty one in february go so he'll have not played basketball for two years and he's in his thirties and he has to significant even if an acl. How about clay do we say. Well klay thompson make a full recovery will klay thompson. Be an all star game. Yeah i guess you could say all star remember well. He returned because he wanted to make a full recovery. I don't wanna be. We'll clay tile. We'll klay thompson and return to his pre injury meaning put in parentheses both knee and achilles willie return to klay thompson for basically is what i'm saying because we have the question about k. d. seaney we'll find out i mean that's and it was one year with an achilles with two injuries. Everybody's still just assumes. I think katie's coming because he can shoot. He'll be okay but like he is not going right. I'm not a young guy anymore right in a ton of run on those legs. He's thirty two. I will tell you now. Back to klay thompson thing. And i'm being very adamant about this series is it. It's not just the mental grind of the rehab. He is going to question if he's the same guy. Yeah it's it's just natural. And i hate to say it. But it's all that and i know how i always mentally tough and i know he's physically tough and a gifted in and grinder but you're talking twenty four months without without if he tore his acl elegant like say toward the other one instead of tearing the aquiles so he was coming coming. Be coming back to i would. I would actually consider doing a heart and trade involved klay thompson if it was just stacey because you know what the achilles heel rehab matter of fact a lot of times. Here's what happens while the structure the need never you can. You can never talk a brand new car once you drive it. It's no longer brand new now. You can do all the fixing you. Output put new tires new paint. But what it never is one hundred percent new again. The knee can never be what it was before it was hurt. Meaning whole does that make sense but what it can do. It happened for me as you can make it better because you know what you finally do you. The tenants in the muscles around you make stronger. Because there's listen when you're an athlete growing up and you know you haven't been hurt. It's kind of say well naturally strong and gifted and on the right. But it's not. It's not the hyper focus on on a certain part of your body right we try to get by look good from head to toe and stay strong but when i when i had my first knee injury the grind. It was like this never happened before. I came out leg. Press in and doing all that side. Beck's machine and the tron machine. Far stronger than i was even going in and after the second one is the same way but then the structure then the bone to bone all that it can't be the same. It just can't the muscle around. It could be stronger but once you once. You've driven that car and repaired it. It's no longer a new car. It just isn't so that but did so you're right mc to acl's yeah this day and age to thirty years ago. When i did mine at a full plaster casts from nato's to my groin they can open a square of the plaster. They saw open. Stick the dog on the. What is it the machine that that that. what am i say. The pulsing where at pulses it contracts and contracts the muscle and you carry it a little like a it would be like a little monitor a little battery like you would like a bigger style pager. Just turn it on. And i would be on crutches walking across campus it would be and it would just be sitting in class and it would be to try and prevent the atrophy. Will that little thing on on a big i did. I took the plaster cast off six weeks. Eight weeks later when they took it off. I almost threw up in my mouth looking at my leg that purple and and just the atrophy two hundred and thirty pounds. I thought i had the leg of did what you do. When you're laying in bed you do leg lifts with the plaster cadillac. It's weights. yeah. I do leg lifts plaster cast. I took that cast off. And i'm talking about six. It was six weeks. I think maybe somebody i appreciate. It was just six in a cat and now my big damn crutches getting around campus in with a backpack ongoing a class. I took that cast off i had to. I almost gagged. Because i looked down at like skinny. And i'm like. I've always had big legs. I'll say my i mean it was like it's not me i don't want to look at look like to the leg of a you know the tall skinny kid the second seventh grade. That's growing but hasn't hasn't like grown right long and skinny nephew right now. He's probably getting close to five seven and he's like a buck tin echoed crank right like like olive oil. He looks like kevin ryan by big. And then i compare them that. Put him side by side. My legs is like i'm never you. My thought process is. How am i ever going to get this back. The structure of it the whole thing like and then you work it and it's weird. How four weeks eighty like. Oh thank goodness and it just so when you go but now you tyranny and a ligament any do you can take the damn thing off and shower and hinge it and i've talked about with my knee replacement. Yeah a year ago. You were moving to let me tell you something. I had the surgery. They put a whole new knee and my right knee three hours after. I was walking down the hallway with the walker. So they get your ass out. And i'm telling you within three days your wealthed less than that. When i went home. I started doing exercises at i. Forty eight hours removed. Craig from this damn surgery. Now you know thirty years ago you're asked lane on that bed for. Let's say you're right so with the need for if it would have been like claes. Neon guarantee came back this year. I'll bet she felt better. Never a pri- was going to be fine. No question now. The kelly's he's got that going on we'll see there's a trade so that the the poll question up with this horrible unfortunate injury. We'll klay thompson. How did you weren't exactly josh. Sports seven ninety on twitter. Share it and give yourself a vote. I tweeted exactly. We'll klay thompson returns his previous form after both in parentheses these injuries. And then yes or no perfect all right. Sports talk seven ninety our number one rolling along the heat injuries like that. The atrophy digital bake you throw up right your mouth sports talk. Seven ninety. buckle up. John salisbury show continues. Be a hell of a ride terms sports. Talk seven ninety. Texans have a game guys know that this week doesn't feel like you're right sure doesn't know how many times we broke down there the the game this week yesterday and we talked about can they defend cam newton. We played some sound yesterday. Romeo cornell little disappointed in the blame of you know that the camp and no off-season because everybody went through it. I can tell you this i. I'm i think there's there's more to it anthony. Weaver said that it's not for lack of effort. And that's okay. I i would expect spectrum them to play hard but going in and there's a few things anthony also talking about the narrative around this defense is b. s. number thirty six here with head into deal with cam newton in the new england patriots. A two thousand seventeen. All's we got to do go go on. I don't ever question effort. Released for the most part and i think anthony weaver's a good dude and seems to be a guy who cares a lot but they aren't responding on defense for whatever reason now they may be playing hard hard doesn't always equal better. Got play smarter for some reason. But here's what he said about the narrative surrounding his defense. We got not give up. Six yard runs in this narrative. This being painted like my guys are undisciplined. Running around box. quite frankly. Not put bluntly is both guys play hard. They battled the doing the absolute best. They can live leave their their everything they have on that football field to go out there and stone. We lost the game ten nothing. You could say it's been seventeen. Nothing i expect to go out there and stop the run every time we do it but to sit here and paint this narrative there was a question asked romeo day about count ability of defense or are they accountable accountable. Anybody that's worked for me. Anything i've done in my tire. Life has been accountable ever question then. I resigned okay but these guys battle they fight. They're doing everything they can go out there and stopped running. We're going to try to do it again this weekend. Listen i on wax asked that question and got them all hot bother. Well we all set number thirty seven right. We're going to get to that a second. What are adam alexa. Last him about accountability. But listen i i. I love fiery coaches that. Get a little pissed at the media for us i do. I don't have a problem with that. They should i mean. But it's okay for the media to ask a to because here's the deal if you're on zoom caller on a media. You're wiki weekly interview or what you do. You're going to get ask questions. It's what they now you don't have to answer it or you can be move onto the next one or you can also address it like he did. I don't have any issue with. Anthony weavers ability with his want to with his team's effort. I think they probably play hard. And you know what i told you about. Offensive line yesterday. What defensive. I mean if you're defensive coach and you don't defend your defense and you bust. Toss them then. Then you're a coward. he's not. He defends his team which is a good thing and he seems like a hell of a good guy who wants to wants his team to succeed but also is going to try to rally around his team. But here's the other side of that. He can get angry which is okay and be frustrated and pound the desk and he should because like. I said it's his team. These are the guys. He's around all day their family you dr. He spends more time with them than he does family during football season period. And i love that about this. But here's the deal. Narrative surrounding the defense isn't a narrative. It's a fact. I'm not talking about the effort part. And i'm sure i'm not talking about the ability. Of course they want to get off the field. Don't want to give up. Sixty yard runs. This didn't happen once. It didn't happen twice. It's happened nine times where they've been able to move the ball on you on the ground nine time so. This is a narrative of a negative narrative. Now if you want to say it's a negative narrative my guys don't care about the run and aren't playing hard well. I always question people from our pop of fans and media from our distance and when we say well. That guy wasn't into it. Well you're not sitting next to him knocking him. You don't know what is it. Maybe just isn't that good a player or maybe just had a rough day or having a rough year so i. i usually just don't question people's money as long as i don't see some guy walking towards a play or equipment on his teammates. I'm assuming that he wants to go in. And give me some effort. So anthony weavers right about that. But i got news for you then. Narrative of this team can't stop the run and is not good running defensively. We're looking at historic numbers. Yeah this franchise worship so the narrative that they give effort. I'm with him on. That course try to play hard the narrative on the fact that this team well. He pointed due to the cleveland. Well we gave up ten points. I got a whole bunch of reasons and games and evidence that tell you if you're talking about analytics can show you a bunch of tape of anthony. Weaver and i want to go over it. Saying i love you way you defend your team. But i don't love the way your team defends the opposing pets at all. Because they're not very good at it but here's what he said. When adam wexler our own team asked him asks romeo should i say and then we're chimes in as well as that resent what happened. So let's play in both thirty seven and thirty eight about the teams in the organization accountability for six weeks now. Five games and kind of the same things been discussed all the time of the defense about integrity and discipline and things like that and mistakes could keep getting made. Is there an accountability. Issue and with limited roster. Where are you with that with with things. That are still happening. From the first time you were in charge role. We still have to continue to preach to these players What's important and how they need to play And it always people always say that well if they don't do it with someone else and And that's a decision that that i have to make Whether i thank someone else going in will help the defense or hurt the defense and then some people say well it can be heard in more than it's hurting But i know what our guys can do because they have shown me you know on film that they can do it right so now then what i have to do is i have to get him to do it right all the time. And that's why you continually hear me talk about discipline and the unit and doing it right all the time at west again. Our guys battle. They try very hard to do their jobs next to their assignments. Are they perfect. Absolutely not my perfect absolutely not. But it's not like we're out there swimming blocks trying to make plays. That's not what happened. Nobody chairman david and connie was here and swimming boxing. Hitting all right. But that's not what happened. Guys are very very prideful. What they're trying to do have we had the results. We want it absolutely not have. We given up a lot of yards in the fourth quarter. Yes all right but it's not because of a lack of discipline our guys hungry. They want to continue to compete every single day on that practice field for me all right and i'm certainly try. I'm not trying. I hold them accountable and they wanna do right. Okay and we're doing everything we can to go out there and stop the run. I can't believe that he and wexler on named the name basis he just goes with that meeting knows what right and you know. What even if your team wasn't given effort. It's okay to defend him. I'm all for love. This about anthony weaver but i got news for you. This is just my opinion now. If anthony weaver sitting in a meeting room watching the tape that we're watching. And i watched it. Maybe a little different than just the fan. Does this just the way it would. I mean it. I do you play the game. I'm watching a little different. And i know there's effort but i can tell you this. He cannot watch the tape and say or imposition. Most because if you were it wouldn't be as bad as it. That's exactly right. It just is so and the problem is in romeo answered. It will put somebody else in the problem is. We're the most undisciplined when you wash them. Just their inability to tackle talking about it the most undesired think about it on the defensive front seven and then but but. Here's the problem. Find me the most disciplined part. The quarterbacks get more disciplined but they still miss hot rates. Yeah they still in the run game. They missed getting to the second level on in the passing in the in the past defense. They're just a little step behind in the run game defense the sometimes overrun the hall. Where the guy cuts back. When you got outside arm free and you're supposed to keep containing chubb in he breaks contains. Get to the edge. You can't let it happen. Problem is it doesn't happen just wants happens to off all the time right so i'm with i'm with anthony. Weaver i am. But i also know did i. There's no way that good defensive coaches like that watch tape and say we're close. Yeah they're not any work. Effort can always be there because he doesn't coach effort nor should he have to but execution players got play better sports. Talk seven ninety. Bill longtime friend sean salisbury. This is the sean salisbury show. Albury sports talk seven ninety. Might ask you guys joe burrow. I was watching. Somebody asked him a question. He goes well other than and losses. And i'm a paraphrase a little bit of thank but just to somebody asked him. I think it was this week. Other than one's lost. How you basically gauge your progress this the rest of the year and you know what he said win wins and losses and so i would and he he's a genius and it's true because you can sit there and now from my point of view and somebody asked me like if you're like if we were going to judge the jets right this year. What would have been progress this year. Well wins yeah you can look at it but you can win some games and be worse than you were the year before and vice versa. Right you can like. I lost some games but our team really. You know a little bit of luck an injury here and there so it goes both ways but i love boroughs answer. Because he's just he just he finds its but hey listen. This is brass tacks buddy. They know basically what that said to me. This isn't a moral victory. do more right. So whether we're in a moral victories or not. i'm not so. I'll ask you guys the same question i'll give you my answer to what st- saves isn't the right word because i don't care what they ain't saving the season 'cause you don't forget the first nine. Yeah but they're still seven to play. So what in your guys mind for. You individually says. I saw success in the last seven games. Is it straight wins and losses or will there be something else that tells you the elect some you see. It's going to have to be on the defensive side of the football. Not being gashed london right at times running the when the other teams run the football because i expect them to be expected to be given up yards passing the opponents passing game. I just don't think the defensive backs or any good so they could suddenly be above average football team at stopping the run. Then i guess that is that measure. Some level of success is the season moves along. But i mean. There's i don't think there's anything at this team can do to change a narrative because i think are that bad. Their talent is that poor overall to have any kind of success josh. What's what's your thought. So i kinda just wanna see two things. It's mostly one desha. Keeps up this level of play. I wanna see him do for a full season. Stay healthy and now i know. Hey this is where. I can expect from this guy every year this level play. Do you need more from him. I'd like more. But as long as i have this. I feel confident that we can win in the postseason. Be competitive with this guy as our quarterback right. And i know that he basically if he doesn't take unnecessary shots in the season. That's over then. I'll feel comfortable that all right. This guy knows that he's too valuable not to be too risky but also still be as dynamic as he's been so far this year and to like him. I want to have some sort of hope for the defense in the run game more than anything. I wanna see some young guy step up and be like all right. That's who we can kill on next year. We can go add another piece to help a little bit. we should settle it down a little bit. Yeah i for me get to garrett here for me. it's well first off. I'd like to see them win games that they're not supposed to and not lose games that that they should win. Okay look to play the jaguars. I wanna see their certain things. I want to see them for watson. I would like to see watson whose elevated his game even elevated more kazan. Truth we judge quarterbacks by what guys wins the the so regardless of. I know it's other things and he's doing his job. But the quarterbacks number one priority is to aside from linney had a complete game to know you know and yet he's still playing great thing that's why he's set the bar so high and that's when people say will you guys critical watson. No no no. If i expect watson to minus quarterback i'd say okay he's exceeded that. Yeah but he is. Put the both set the bar. So i know what he's got i know what he's got and that's why and i would imagine. He probably knows it too as far as the expectations is know he shouldn't miss a hot read. I know he's capable of throwing the ball away. I know he is and so. That's where my frustrations i say. This dude to nine four nine eight five. And if he stuck. The landing is pushing. You know top three or four quarterbacks in this league right now see. i'm trying to look through. Not just the staff. I'm looking through the hidden stuff. Like when you miss a hot rate. Okay he steps out of it makes a twenty yard play spectacular. But when you're watching on tape would if he doesn't step out of it at some point in time and there'll be a time when he doesn't guy hit you from wounded says well. He stepped out of a read that he missed you. So you know what i mean so yes i expect more from him because i know where the bar is and i know but i also know this. If we're going to judge dan marino for never winning the superbowl and people say well. Dan never one yet. Look at all the numbers. Then don't i gotta judge a quarterback when you're two and seven and say you gotta elevate your players and part of his elevation. I'm telling you is. He needs to come out of that locker room and play in the first quarter like he does in the fourth to where they hang twenty one spot that. That's one of the things that i want to see the improvement on faster start. Obviously the is. I need to. I need to see a performance where the other team walks off the field and you say we got our ass kicked. I'm talking about the other guys right. Yeah more than once the rest of the seven games but a level of consistency were looks like an sixty s where it looks like a playoff football team. Then i won't say well. You had a successful season. I'll say you salvage seasoning got better. There's only thing you can do is turn it into a seven game season and say okay. We're five and two if you're able to get there okay. Let's look at then. You can look at it. The look what you guys did from here when everybody was dog in. You're playing well and look how you turn this around even though you didn't make the playoffs so watson. I have such high expectations. Because i know he's a great player. I know he can be better. Which is a lot saying something. Because he's put up great numbers but they're still. I'm telling you there's still room in his game to play even better but he's not the reason there the the there's a lot of other reasons. They're not winning but for me. Yeah if they go six one bit like lucky doing it. I'll say okay. Six one great but if they go four and three but we see great improvement. I can live with that at least going into next year. Because i know they're not a playoff to know me anymore. Right my miami and five and two is reach. Don't get yourself. Don't kid yourself garrett got what's going on man welcome in good morning guys. How are you good all right man. Well i guess. Not just shawn watson and i've been i've been trying to put up some stuff and and so i look back at this college scouting before into the red flag for me and so i i completely agree. If you on hunt on him having elevate his the his teammates game. But when i saw baker mayfield almost make a play when he got he. was about get sacked. He got rid of the ball. It did not make it. To the line of scrimmage so they ended up getting grounding penalty but it was it was. It was a tip to try to do that. And i'm not seeing the shawn watson. Make those types of plays where you know. Essentially he can kind of do that. The the the quick Things that to avoid sacks to continue drives in so his college scouting report his weaknesses whereas feel vision Working through progressions prone to throwing too high can stare down the primary receiver. You know all those things you know. When i think about it they all come down. You know essentially from the same essential problem which is essentially You know just. I just don't think that that he's really elevating his game. This season these underachieving just clearly in its history for four hundred yards. He's got it you know he's got it in them. So i guess my question is do you think he's underachieving. Really promoted his game since college and You know that's just really it. Okay there's always we appreciate garrett thank you very much knows. Funds got report yeah. Scattered reports are fine and dandy. But that's all they are a scouting report. Some guy saw him on pay at some of it's true but i think his vision is really good. I think some of those things in high. But i think you start to look at his accuracy and his numbers. I think he's overcome some of those. And if you take another scattering report. I saw somebody say well. He doesn't throw the ball downfield very well. One of the top guys who judge him because he missed a couple throws when he was at clemson on the deep bosses. The things we do so hypersensitive. So i scouting reports the same. Excuse me another guy with credibility as well as i don't even know who had that scouting report. Somebody else may turn it around. Say great field vision steps out of trouble. You'll get something the opposite. It's just an opinion. And i i understand some of it is held true but i don't think he's underachieving at all. I don't think he can be better. But if you're telling me if you told me when watson came into league you're going to get this type of player. I'd say okay. I'm good with it so everybody else went undrafted in the top four. Yeah we did. We redid it. He wouldn't have been lasted till he did so. I understand the frustration and one thing. We can't do geared. i'll have to guard. You insist as much as people in this. Part of the country may like baker mayfield baker mayfield's not in the same league as the shaun watson. He stepped out a one. Play to shawn. Watson makes fifteen more plays a game than than baker does and bakers good player in still got. There's still a lot of room for him to grow a lot more to put it this way. If deshaun watson was on the cleveland browns right now we would think they were a super bowl caliber team. I'm not kidding you there are there. Six three and baker hasn't played consistently like we want to be made some really. He's played some good games. You get my point. Yeah so she's been okay. That's them from winning. That's exactly right so but if he ever matches what we think about him and what we thought about coming out like the game against cincinnati. Got a real chance. Yeah but nah scouting reports are just that some of holds true. But a lot of those negatives there is twenty five times more positive garrett for watson the negative and he's right now i think he's a player a minus player. I do believe let's say he's a b. plus a minus considering what potential is. I still think there's room for growth but if you told me this is what i was going to get out of them. The rest of his career. He'll be a top five quarterback in league for the rest of his career. But i know how good he is. And i have expectations more than at times. I'm probably overly critical. Because i see the little things but i know he's capable of it he can do things the average dude or the good player can't do in the league now he's just got a button up some of the other things that a lot of guys may do better right now. The hot read because he so spectacular athletically and quarterback wise sometimes. Like anything you say. Well don't worry about that he can blitz. I'll make him miss like he did. In pop warner right so once. He gets a little more disciplined with that and is is pre snap and then the second the post snap. He'll be fine but scouting reports of that. I respect them. But i know for everybody that said a negative thing about him. There's five positives. I'm a big watson fan but he does have to play better and they got to win. That's number one priority to in seven. Not good enough. He knows that as well. We're gonna come back and do specs right when we come back. And we'll hit into the jump. Right into the stakeout suspects. Pick of the week next embassy and myself jesse here as well. The john salisbury. Show put our smart ass on your smart speaker.

Go in person to one of specs a store near you again. Drink response picks of the week mc. Let's start with you. So i'm actually on a hot streak right now. My picks i think are picked three weeks or four weeks in a row correct. You had been three weeks in a row and you got snap last weekend. Unfortunately but i've been giving you the indiana hoosiers as of late and they'd been winning for me. I'm going away from them. I'm going to your conference the pac twelve this weekend there. How dare you take that risk. I know it is rescued twelve. Especially when you got to pack twelve. You're right you know you. Did you call it a pac twelve. I almost bought the pac tin I'm going to the organ. Ucla game oregon is a seventeen point home favourite. They're just to own the year. The ucla bruins are one in one. They lost or they won. What last week against cao they lost to colorado to start the season so far organised covered in both of their games. They've yeah both games. They've played this year. Beaten down stanford in washington state maybe. Ucla's chip kelly. Maybe you've got to start slowly turned the corner there. I mean they. They've been rosetta. Hurry ruben respectable. I i two game. But i think that organ- at home will end up boat racing them points per game wise. Both teams are up there organ. Averages thirty nine ucla's average and thirty eight of the first two but ucla's almost thirty points per game where organs numbers closer to twenty. I like oregon to cover the seventeen points there at home and remain perfect against the spread this week. So that's my specs. Bigger the way. I'll tell you what else is interesting. I'm c. is the about that oregon which they haven't hit their stride yet and it's to me it's about to happen. Is there one of the leading teams in the country that on the minus side which is odd for them of turning the ball over there often right exactly so they got to fix that once. They fix that. I'm with you. And i think they can fix this week as long as they. Don't turn it over there. Real threat new quarterback. But mario cristobal. They play physical. I think this is where ucla. I like oregon. And i think that's a good pick going with this. Slide seems so disrespectful to me. That's it feels completely. This team is but i just mentioned. They've been disrespected all year. Feels line line. When i see and they're doing a great job against i mean spread wise this year four. No right so. I'm looking at this and i think. Okay the indiana hoosiers ninth ranked team in america. First comes to mind is. What has bobby knight coaching them. In the late seventy s. What i think. And he writes. This is football. And they are real the quarterbacks tough they play hard you don't get a bite used us to get a bi week at times when you play indiana. That's not the case this year. This team believes they can win. They believe they can beat good teams. Now how state get them. Good last year this. That's twenty and a half points and so the initial thought is how disrespectful by the lie. That people who set the line which is about four five dudes right sent the line for this game. Yeah but then you think. Wait a second. Something's up at some point. They're going to the number nine three team versus the number three team. Remember fresh legs house state. The either cancelled or postponed game with maryland last week right so you know fields has something he wants to continue to prove ryan day. This team is number three and we know they can score at the blink of an eye right. Yes so at first i thought i am taking indiana and then i sat back and i said you know what this is. One of those words seventeen points and then ohio state scores to touch down. The end wins by twenty eight. I'm taking ohio state minus twenty and a half to win because it looks to while. Because i'm telling you people people the public's going to look at this and say twenty and a half the ninth ranked team. I got them and then ohio state takes them to the woodshed right. I think we'll how state i mean. Indiana may come back down to earth a little bit this week against ohio state system on. Yeah they are. Then it's it's it's an incredible watch all right the drink of the week. This sounds good apple cider guy. I had one drink earlier years older. I do like it okay. So let's think about this one now. It's called the apple cider champagne cocktail appetizer champagne cocktail. We'll excuse me so. You got a little bubbly in it. So the you know the carbonated carbonation and you get the apple cider. Little fall taste right and it just kind of looks refreshing but also has that feeling of autumn in the. It's football season it's thanksgiving. It's the holidays so with that. The thanksgiving apple cider kochta. Here's the ingredients two cups of chilled apple cider. Which is kinda cool a lot of times we think well as apple cider only hot chilled apple cider homemade or store bought whatever you prefer homemade sounds good two cups of chilled champagne. Which means that. That's that's at is on borderline ice chips in cold and the optional if you like the garnish on the rim. That's fine didn't sound right but this drake of the week. This is the always gonna have it on the rim guard is of course you do make sure you lake off whenever you garnered right so you could put that on there. I'm not a big garnish guy when it comes to drinks but hey i just want to get to the taste of the cocktail a tablespoon of brown sugar. I'm a huge brown. Sugar guy and one tablespoon of sugar and there you have it you mix all that chilled apple cider chill champion the ingredients will be upright the recipe in the picture mc sports. Seven hundred dot com. So that is your thanksgiving apple. Cider cocktail the apple cider champagne cocktail. That is your thanksgiving cocktail. That is your specs drink of the week along with our picks of the week and the picture alone makes you wanna go drink. It looks delayed yet. Does refreshing mixed with that flavor of the fall apple cider. And if you're a homemade apple cider person you can invite me an and josh. We are all in it. That's our specs. Pick of the week specs online dot com and your specs drink of the week finding it sports seven ninety dot com i. Let's take this thing. Outlet starve view which you got in the afc south. Really in the afc. This weekend there is a big game. It is a ravens and titans who needs the wind. More the ravens. Titans both coming off a loss. You can make me. It's tough to say. I think which one because both teams are now sitting back looking up in their division both need one. I did you know what. listen with. All these teams bunched together. Yeah i actually think the titans can make up more ground if they lose even though i think both of them coming off a loss. Both of them need it. But i think the type. Because i'm not sold on the cult. The culture their defense is like the best in the league is yards per game. But i'm not sure. Their offense sustained three or four weeks in a row. So i would say probably baltimore which is odd yet. I think is a really really huge game for both in the big scheme of things but this would move baltimore two six four two six six four which keeps cleveland and pittsburgh now with oakland and miami. Think about the team can move past them this while it would be a half game ahead of them because remember both play baltimore again right coupons. More than the eagles right and which they should win their faith. So you're taking a look at. Oh my gosh baltimore. We're talking ten games in a season last winter place. Yeah and they played great football offensively. I actually think it hinges more on baltimore. I think tennessee can overcome at more because their division in my mind is easier with with jacksonville and houston texans in it. I'm gonna take tennessee. Needs it more finding baltimore. Needs it more. But six and four just doesn't sound like we thought would be coming off of fourteen to season right. Josh wichita got man so last week aaron rodgers heard of him. He said that. Fred warner was the best milwaukee or linebacker in felt it led to darius leonard not being very happy with it. Here's what he said that. I've seen it as soon as he said it. Though you know you things like that. The motivation go appointed. I'll be looking forward to this game. He said he's been a league for talk and he put it on type twice a year. So you know i i. I'm wondering what are we hoping change as so. My question to you is is darius. Leonard is a fred warner or is it someone else. That's the best linebacker currently To me who did To who did san francisco play last week. Why am i losing. My mind played in new orleans. Believe matteo davis is a really good player to that and Do mario and going in. He's probably the most unheralded when you talk about. I think i still think that. Bobby wagner and fred warner the best inside linebacker darius leonard get talked to me two years he in year two right now your so. I think i think he is. One hell of a player lead one of the best defense in the league. Davis is a monster who doesn't get as much credit as some of other guys. And i know a trigger frigging know how good our guy. Why am i losing my mind. The other at the inside linebacker. I just said he's talking about bobby. Wagner yes bobby wagner is a monster on a bad defense right now so that goes to show. You can be a great defensive player. Defeat sucks i think fred. Warrener's the best middle linebacker. The league right. Now i do. I'm with aaron rodgers. He runs he smart. He's he can take on lead blockers and the whole. He's good against the pass. He's may. He missed a few lat against against green bay. But i'm gonna right now from my money if you said right today. Take a middle linebacker that you that you liked it. Also as a quarterback on defense i think fred warner's the best but i'm gonna tell you what you could about four or five minutes pile and if you get stuck with the fourth one like davis or you all the sudden say well you gimme bobby wagner. I i'm pretty solid. But i would pick warner first right now. Yeah the only other guy that i think could be up in mentioned in there that you have mentioned yet is lavar david i know he's more of outside linebacker but he does everything middle. Well the truth is far as a group. David and white are the two best linebacker combo in the league. i think. and there's another guy. We talked about davis those guys in the south because we think offense david white nor davis get enough credit for the way they play. There is no doubt and david's a pro bowler. They just with a little bit of up and down. But i'm telling you you're right if all of a sudden you said well can. I have lante david. There's a lot of people that love and he can run and he will hit you and he's fear so i don't have any problem. You put levante david. I'm gonna tell you what Stay tuned because about three years you may see white winning himself fair share pro bowl burston if not sooner he is a really good. He's he's lsu. If i'm not mistaken right. Yeah so david white give you as good a combination as there is but we just stayed five or six at that If you don't bring a lunch pail you're going to get the hell kick daddy of those. Are some physical nasty. I'll take warner i. i think. Aaron rodgers right and leonard should be pissed because we get to play this week and there you go low pay back. Gopher aaron rodgers will be waiting. I'm sure sportstalk. Seven ninety little stakeout. Come right back and roland here on a friday. Now the skydive space land weather center.

It's no jose or keady ice-cream more affirmative album also your put at the top of the rotation. Yeah like it. You think it's foggy out there. Oh crap look at turnaround with other windows prior monster out there. The fall couldn't see tillman's buildings morning on grabbing saint landry's i couldn't see really. That's how foggy it was. Yeah be safe out there. Be safe out there. What you send me a a little mc a little text is this The people that represent That these are the same people that are represented by the re this. They're the same representation as jackie's okay. Same agency yes. Some of the names on there. We're coaches right coaches. And i think james bachelor cordinator did or in the front office and coach jay gruden. Leslie frazier john fossil. Who's one of the best special teams coaches in the league. You got jim levette. Who coach she used as head coach and defensive coordinator. I think we're talking about you. Know he'd been at oregon a minute. He was a head. Coach was at f- he was one of the florida Was it southern. Florida back in the day. The what's the one with the Tables wasn't either the head coach there fixing coordinator at oregon right. Let's see spagnolo. Obviously doing a really good job as a defensive coordinator in san in in kansas city pat shurmur. He's been down there easy offensive coordinator in denver. I'm just throwing names out some that than tim. Kelly obviously is represented by the same group. Brian daboll was here and he's probably of all these guys. I'm looking at donna. Tell defensive coordinator denver broncos. It's been around a long time. I'm looking at these names on this list about guys that are possible interviews greg olsen. Obviously you've seen him as an offensive coordinators with the raiders has been an offensive coordinator at different times of quarterback coach across lease. Been here before he might have we with with gary for a minute. He may very well have swore he would make him. he might well have been So these are names that are represented to is the defense coordinator at cal. I believe right now wasn't okay but greg's the league like atlanta. I believe he's right. He's been he was on greg olsen and greg's been around a long time but greg knapp is another name who's been a quarterback coach offensive coach for years in the league. The biggest the most popular name on here. That has a lot of success on this group. Is brian daboll the offense coordinator in buffalo now long shot. But he's really become and josh allen and in digs and what they're doing offensively he's really done. A great job had had. He called the second half of last year's game the first half. The texans don't win that game. It was like what are you doing. Why why are we dropping back and thrown at four thousand times in the second half of your buffalo. They had game dead to rights. Remember the first two series. They come down. That first half was like oh my gosh. This is an ass kicking waiting to happen in. The texans crept back in and hung around in one game. But that's a whole list of coaches personnel. People represented by the same agency. As as jack easterby names on here. You're worried about the most right because syria. Oh yes well. This guy is going to hire the head coach. So i not that these guys are the guys are going to interview. These are just not the names that they're interviewing. These are names represented by the same agency in a lot of times. Wpro goto your agent. And he'll say hey. I want to push course. That's that's natural. I only know to two names on your chris. Polian is the director. play personnel in jacksonville. You'll know that name. You know. Nick caserio and another name you know but you might not know. Is brian heimer dinger. Who is mike's son. And my camera. Dinner longtime offensive coordinator in in the in the nfl. Brian i believe is if i'm not mistaken is the former vice president with the jets. Right wasn't he with the jets at one point in time. Wasn't brian heimer. Dinner with the jets. Yeah i am vice-president okay so there you go. There's a few of the names that are with the agency. The question is which way do they go now. Joe shine who's assistant general manager in buffalo buffalo's starting to have some success so it'll be interesting. The names on the you can guarantee that one of the names from both sides those lists. I saw that we're supposed to cody. Cody you put that up that. That's a good list in good knowledge to have is. I can tell you this that you know that somebody on both sides that lists player personnel and the coaching side will be interviewed questions. Will they get it. Because that's it's almost even if it was just a courtesy to brian. Heimer dinger right or to nick caserio. The which would be more than that but see. I'm not doing any courtesy to me. I'm bringing in guys that i that i want to do it now. But there are favors in the business but bring in seattle. I don't even know if he'd want to do it. But i would love to try and convince ozzie newsome to come back to come back and do it. I would at least to at least give me through a couple of years right. How he's gotta be in his late sixties gotta be got four okay so younger than i thought. What a great play just i. i think ozzy's in good health. He sure i'm pretty sure he is. But i would love. I don't know what his anti he may not even carry. Maybe done just enjoying life so good for him. But i can tell you this. If there was a hint that you could get him at least interview him. I would and i'm not doing. This is one of those. You interview the guys that you think are great candidates. We just named a bunch of them are a great candidate. There's there's a lot of. I'll tell you what maybe one interview louis riddick. Louis riddick stemming has been a personnel guy. He's doing now. lewis has been want money football. Monday night football. He's got a great gig apparently really went back into. He's he's wanted to be a front office guy. And i don't blame. I don't mean he's been begging for but you know. Listen the front office guy guests that you want to run a team. Don't blame him. And if you're a coach what you wanna do and then you go broadcast usually wanna come back and coach. Luis front office guy. Who's doing a great job on monday night football but my hunch is that if somebody called him and said we'd like to hire you interview and high if somebody calls and ask for an interview. He's going to tell monday night football. I'm at least going interview. I there's no way you turn that down even though it's a good gig. He's got on monday night. Football with levy and greasy. And you'll get job. But i think that the the ability run a football team intrigues people. So he's another good candidate and we mentioned some other ones caserio. You'll you'll go look for like a kansas city chiefs assistant next of each who's been brought up by an and beach. You know police kid. There's a lot of different ones around the league. Say and names. You've never heard of names. You've never heard of an were coaching. Like arthur smith probably gonna be more nato what it's probably going to be. We haven't heard more than likely unless it's nicotera unless you're in the it's not maybe not the biggest sexiest right. Probably some assistant that you're like. Oh he's been working behind seattle behind you know behind behind the gm. He's been working in tennessee beyond john robinson. He's been working behind in kansas city. Probably somebody can just continues to be an we find. We hear from cal yesterday. after. I mean they've they've clapback pretty good against all the rumors that are being out there. Because they're they're they're terrible rumors but do we do. We understand believe jackie's should be is not going to basically be making this decision. I i don't know why again that he's going to be this involved. I have no idea well. They say he's going to have a heavy word heavy involvement in in in. He's in cairo in putting clearly in building. The future of this franchise heavy involvement means. He's going to have a say in. Who the general managers. Yeah whether it's a general manager. Not he's going to have to approve it. We'll discuss i think. Mcu get some shoes door. Of course i do their new balance shoes which you should be getting a new balanced greater houston uptown. The woodland's two spots to go get them see the fit specialist this weekend to get into the perfect fit custom fit with the new balance shoes like i have done. It is a big time game changer. You will see that difference. I'll feel it again today. We've been doing a lot of stuff but on my feet a lot this week whether it's working out walking around looking at houses and stuff like i've needed my feet to be comfortable and that's exactly what i've gotten from new balance shoes once you guys to see what this world is like as well uptown and the woolens the two spots to go get after it and see what this world of custom fit is like ask about that. New fresh foam technology as well. It has been a game changer for the new balance shoes. Oh yeah they look great as well so get over there today. Location of ten or the woodland fantastic fit specialist at new balanced greater. Houston up at the crack of dawn at the crack of stacey jennifer caron. At least he was back at the glory days the nowadays. It's up at dawn. Which sean sean salisbury show sports. Talk seven ninety. Texans have a. I don't even know if we're supposed to call it a big a big game. But it is to them because it is every week some big game regardless directories. How many people are actually going to walk. I am you will. I think if you're not going to watch i am i. Oh you mean is tell us. If you're gonna walk i i find that people are not watching all. I think you're probably right. I think i'm just nuts because the in here on monday. We gotta talk about now if you're asking me today if we did not talk about football or the texans specifically yeah would i watch sunday. I would be watching another game now. Here's what i do i have. Tv's and then the computer with the nfl has i'm watching all right. And then i every single game that comes on the tv in any game not just any game you know the two games taped yeah tape them all and then with the nfl ticket and the all twenty two that you're gonna pay for you. I can go back and watch the game or watch all twenty two the way. I wanna watch it on my computer home right. So if there's a france. If i'm going to go on in baltimore or in arizona uncle batch and watch the twenty two and i taped the game last night again. Go back and watch certain places. Just watching cuyler. Murray's throws ryden through it. Listen i really care about third and four in the middle of the second quarter. That gets me to yards okay. Now if you're the coach you do because you want to know why that was third. Didn't get to not five right and that's it but you go through but try to watch the watch game and i know you will too because we josh. We'll talk about it but no you. I think you're right mc. Do i think that the interest is now if you had a choice of to go. Look at christmas lights or watch a game or going around and play golf or something. Oh i don't think there's any question only if somebody asked me to play golf. I play golf agreed. I mean i might honestly if we don't find a mighty house shopping again. And i want you can tape it and watch it later. You're not you don't really care that somebody tells you the score right now because you don't really that's my point you go back for a draft pick. I would watch. i'd be more in. I'd be more locked in an engaged and enthusiastic to watch a game. They were playing for a chance to have the first pick which they are. But it's going to miami right and but we watch so we can make you know. I would never want to come on here and start spewing stuff that you do watch ourselves we watch so now you may not watch it live subtitles because you got something else. You'd rather do wonder like the casual person. Seven one three two one two five seventy you watch it because i was if i was somebody that didn't have our job. I would not watch okay. And i want to know if they're watching. Why not. why just because it's football. Maybe or you're just a urine unwavering fan. That's okay so seven one three two one two five seven ninety. Here's what tim kelly said. Now i've always said this like if you're a fantasy football person so i don't play fantasy. Football helps some people take time. Because there's too many leagues and it's i don't i hate the fact that i got to watch football different. It's like when you gamble on a game. You watch the game. You want your team to win but you wanted to win by three. If it's a it's a four point. Two point spread right so fantasy. Football makes me watch football different. And so you root for the quarterback it makes your team right so but i also tell people this i say to make sure you look at the opponent and then the coordinator for each team and what they do if they're playing a running passing game if you're down to if you're up three touchdowns this coach in college of the. Nfl still liked to throw mike leach if he's up three touchdowns and you know he's going. That's exactly right so you'd say well if we're looking for the over the to take a lot of times take the over in games like if this game against oklahoma you think lincoln riley or mike gundy. You're backing off this week. Oh hell no dave even if they're twenty one normal ohio state so you gotta look at. Nfl doesn't change either for real quick. Let's get to tim. Kelly number forty eight josh. When you face a good running team which will nine times this year. They faced the like. They're good running team against jacksonville twice. So really it's eight teams eight-game eight teams and nine games right. That's the only team. They played twice so far. Yeah in their division. so tim. Kelly was asked when you face a good running team which would mean every single game this year. Does it instead of saying that you should have said when you face a team that runs the ball. Go good on your team but you gotta protect it when it does it. Change the way you call offense because you're facing a team that can run it. No matter who the opponent is. The goal is always when we get the ball the score so First and foremost that doesn't really change things but it does change the way you look at it You know last week we we really had seven possessions and all it's going to be eight but the last one was with you know thirty five seconds or whatever to go and At at the end of the first half there so You know when you have limited opportunities you gotta make sure that You make every play count and we've been really stressing not to our players earlier in the week In in throughout the week is to go out there and make sure you you go out and execute an incredibly high level Ever single snap because at the end of the day. You don't know which you know which play out of that. Say you get sixty plays which play out of. That's going to be the one that that makes the difference so it definitely Forces forces the players enforces the coaches to Really make sure and stressed the importance of each and every play because like you said you make limited swings out so I think it's really helped kind of drive. That focus home in in hammer that point on what it does change. That was tim. Kelly talking about the change. Your offensive team runs while against. Here's what you do that changes the game goes on. Because if you've got a two touchdown lead and the team runs the ball. Or they got one touchdown lead and depending on the time and you start to look at well. They've established himself for three and a half quarters where they're going eight plays nine plays twelve place. We can't get a lot of. It is as our defense that day getting off the field so because in truth the kansas city chiefs may run it eighteen times and throw twelve screens on your ass. It's the same thing. That's that's twenty. Six run plays so. When you're doing it you call your game plan but you also shift your game plan. Considering have we tried to shorten the game. are they trying to shorten the game. how do we lengthen it for us. If we're down to touchdown so we get more so it does. But he's definitely right. You got one goal every time you get the ball score but there are those times when you say we gotta lean on this. Make sure we don't turn to flip the field. We'll play safer and punt. But i always caution guys against. Don't start kicking that in in the middle of the third quarter walk quarterbacks in this league or too good you think you got a twenty one point lead in the third quarter you blinken. It's tied it could be gone in nine six minutes. A look at the last night tulsa in their game scored twenty one points in the fourth. Quarter they'd come back in their butt kicked by two lane the whole game scoring twenty one points. And then they get the overtime touchdown. Yeah they win a game just like that and they were to lane was he had their game. Hand the whole time you blink and you end up losing so it can happen. But tim kelly's right. You wanna score every time. The key is the other teams defense has got to prevent them from scoring every time. So you could score thirty and give up thirty four and you're still not winning sports.

We sometimes like to have a little fun. We all we all get made fun of times right. I'll wait for myself. So why not the dumbest thing you said recently. Can you remember dumbest thing. I said recently. oh dumbest thing i said no. That's not done that's true. That's not debatable. And it's not done that. I said i got gotta voice like g and jesus. That's that's that's not debatable. Probably last week. When i said on a pick segment i do that. I said that Who who got sue got blown out last week. Oh michigan thing. I said last week to michigan. Would rebound beat wisconsin in ann arbor and buy some time and they only just under fifty. It was like an end in michigan. Put up what a baseball score the hang five or six terrible felt like a foot two field goals or something. Whatever it was it was so that was the dumbest thing i said in the last week thinking that michigan would actually have some balls and show up. Yeah and wisconsin took them to the friggin wisconsin. Right yeah he's concert in ann arbor. I don't care if there's fans are not michigan's know what michigan's plan like The that michigan is playing. Like i dunno. Give them like maybe. How indiana should oregon state would play on a off and on honor indiana old school indiana and the big ten. Yeah michigan's them right now. They're putrid so that was that's probably at mc mine. Was this phone bank beyond. Have these buttons off united matter. Okay gotcha just making sure you know the mechanics of this time. Go all right so yeah. That's probably the dumbest thing over the last. We all say a lot of dump things to ourselves. I talked to myself. Why you guys talk to yourself. Ever i asked myself i do say some. I talked to my dog's going to talk to me. They well they know what you're saying but see now. My my world is different now. Because i can't talk to myself because she works from home every day so i mean i'm literally with her but it. I have somebody to talk to every single day all day long right so it's not like before this happened. She would be at work and being the dogs for until you know five thirty everyday. When i get home. I talk to myself now. No right i ask myself questions an answer them which is weird. She does that too. And i was like. I'm talking to myself. I'm talking to myself. Why i'm right here. You can talk to me fright with her. I do it all the time. So he hangs. What do you think about what what now. I'm not talking to you all okay. Yeah it's true. I do so i probably say more dump thanks to myself then try to convince myself of things. Yes do this. Don't do this. But the michigan pick last week is the dumbest thing i've said you could. Ice cold take me easy. Because i convinced myself that michigan after the putrid start at some point with all these guys asked to show up at some frigging point. Well i lied to myself. Not anybody else but i did put it out in public. You make a pig. Oh i got michigan. This week though bounced back and before you know it. You're in the middle of the second quarter thick and Can give all those people the money they might have been on michigan. you know. it's called gambling for a reason. But what a bad gamble that was complete ask kick in michigan took so that would be for me probably this week. I said that the warriors are probably gonna coast through the western conference klay thompson being kind of way to put that out there josh. Well guess whose fault it is. Clay got hurt. It's josh knows you put that evil on me ricky. There you go josh. The reason so that that's probably there you go but for you to say that me. Santa got voice again. Jesus which you gave me the label i did. You can't take that away from me. Now i would never would. Yeah exactly so. I never would and and but you can probably debate the model debate that one. I will debate the model and crew for all three of right. But you can't debate my work at the top of the catwalk. I know you'd want to be you. Can't you haven't seen it so you do have a new knee. We've been to go and makes that spin right foot absolutely. Let's get a bat bat. We are asking the question first off. Would you am see wanted to know. Would you guys. Are you watching the game this week. With texans at two and seven. I'm not sure why And we're going from there so matt what's on your mind matt. How're you doing. Hey guys talk this great book. So i'm a i technically will watch the game but it's going to be more background noise for me. I got a lot of work to do around the house. So it's going to be on but That's going to be my take For for for this weekend. But my question for you guys and i'll ask it and let you guys do your thing regarding to shawn watson and infections is sean going. He's twenty five will be twenty six going into the next season You know he's i think in some well established one of the top five or six quarterback the game right now and he's still has room to grow at the same time Are you guys seeing even though he signed an extension and this is going to be based on a lot of what ifs especially what happens in the offseason. Do you see him kinda. If the texans aren't going the direction he that we need to go see him. England like a james harden situation is coming up this year because his best years looked coming up here. Rather you know probably in the next four or five years and i'm personally i don't see the section is really doing much over the next four or five years you see him angle and You know for a possible trades would seem that can possibly win or provide a better platform for him to win That's my that's my question for you guys. I'll i'll hang up and with your. Thanks appreciate you thanks for chiming in. Here's what i think. I think that that's why i keep saying this. General manager and head coach of the most important higher in the two decades of this franchise. Why because listen i. I don't want us to get to the police. Say well everything hinges as watson going to be ups frustrated in turn and walk in two years i hope he's not thinking that and i think that judging from his way he plays weekly that i think he likes it here and he's getting paid a lot of money and when you're getting paid that kind of money you don't move those contracts but in two years he's going to be the prime hitting reached of his career so got plenty of football left. I think the head coach is going to help determine his feelings down the road. Now listen if they hire head coaching for the next three years they are just putrid. Then maybe watson's like anybody else says will make i get somewhere where we got a chance to win. Super gets to that point. Where he he lets his contract and they can tag him right of course for for two years three years and it keeps going to be here now for another seven-year as long as he doesn't go into the tank. Don't get rid of a franchise quarterback matt i get. Your point continued. Worry though that he's going he's not going anywhere right he would have signed. The contract. signed in quarterbacks. Don't jump no. That's the one position for the now. You say cousins but remember cousins was right. The redskins didn't wanna keep right. That's exactly right. He's me the washington football team so when they drafted here supposed to be the backup anyway if you remember bob griffin same draft right robert griffin so matt you make a good point. I just don't think watson gonna want bail. And i think the next head coach also if they're winning and remember this we said it yesterday. How quickly you can turn it around. Carolina two and fourteen two years later in the super bowl san francisco forty niners sub five hundred team all their two or three years away. Bingo there in the super bowl can't city chiefs good team but not in the super bowl. Get a quarterback boom win the super bowl baltimore ravens. Good team boy quarterback sweetie. He's the mvp. Kyle i mean it can change. Just in the other way to josh allen going to be like boom buffalo's sitting in a position to win the division. I mean it can change both ways. So i for even though. They don't have draft picks. Let's i wouldn't get too carried away thinking that well. They're not going to be good for five years now. If this trend continues about bad coaching irons at the front office the lack of commitment they don't get pro now stands patents defense. Plays like this. Yeah everybody's gonna be pissed. They can. they're never gonna play worse than they play in this year on defense. Never watson's here. There's no way they're going to give up more rushing yards next year than they are this year. So that's one good thing. So i don't think watson's going anywhere matter of fact the franchise can't be they've done some silly things. They're not dumb enough to let that sure is frustration amount. The par frustration mountain is getting a coach. Can curb it and you go in. And that's partly on him as well matter of fact more than partly on him. That's his main responsibility. So i don't think so. Jeff jeff hang right there. We're going to take quick break. Come back and we'll get to you and our other caller seven one three two one two five seven hundred watching a game if you are y. If you aren't why. Matt great call. But i we got so many things to worry about mattie. I wouldn't worry about shawn watson coach general manager. Getting things shored up. Look into twenty twenty sports talk. Seven hundred. staying is the only sports that matches the houston sports bubble for the city of houston. Because i love this. City sean salisbury. Get in the bubble on ninety sports. Talk seven ninety calls are coming in football call. Texans what's happening by the way are got kindergarten kinder- the sons in the top five. I saw that he buying that one in the west. A bottle of what kendrick has been saying about the relax. I like that. He's got a hardcore. i'm not buying. The sons are top. Five team in the west. No let's get to jeff jeff. Welcome in my phone number seven one three two one two five seven ninety. How you doing brother. Good maga- more and how you got some good This ties into what matt just called in about Wanted to ask you. A question about watson was going to have a breakout game this year but not that he was the top five six quarterback and right now. I don't believe so you made five or six really good points. Because isn't it all about the system. Texans are going to hire in the system. He gets put in asked me that question one more time. Well the system that shawn watson like whoever they hire right the quarterback they. It's a system that whoever they hire a head coach is going to have to have a system. That watson fits. Yeah what's system. Don't you think he fits in jeff. Well currently not the wanting any hasn't had a breakout game this year. He it's not like he has a lack of talent around him. he does have great. Receivers will fuller is good. Brandin cooks is good. Like he's got talent around him I'm not sure about the offensive line but last year the offensive line wasn't good at all and he made plays left and right. He just not doing that because she okay and let me just stats can be misleading. I understand what you're saying. I expect more from watson to specially in the win loss. But let me let me just say for an average season. What's going on with him. Free in your mind right. You say twenty five hundred yards with seven games to go. So what's that going to be right around. Four four thousand. he's got eighteen. Touchdowns five picks his quarterback rating is one hundred and seven quarterback rating is great. Because it's not. They're not dumped passes. It's just over the middle a seven yard al second. Now you know who's going into last week in may still be leading the league in yards per attempt the nfl. Yeah so that's why. I'm saying defined kite. Do get your point. They're going to bring in a system. But the system will cater to watson as you do in kansas city as you would in baltimore's you doing zone as you do in seattle as you do in in it. Because that's your jared goff you build it around your your best player. But i think there's a lesson you know me. I love watson. But i'm also critical of him because i'm looking at smaller details and wins and blitz pickups and throwing the ball away sack but he his big his biggest season touchdown passes was two thousand eighteen and two thousand nineteen th through twenty six. He's gonna he's gonna break that this year so and we say well he's just throwing up well. Eight three eight point eight yards per attempt. He stole the ball down the field more. They get more chunk yards. Didn't than we've seen in a while so my point is when we watch on tv. Because i am with you on this part. When you're looking with the naked eye say man. Where's that thirty of thirty four game for four hundred yards and four. Tv's where dominates. I get that but as far as the level pro. Football focus everything. He's having a top five cs having one of his better seasons when it comes to the best a lot of junk yardage maybe. Oh you mean when you're playing from behind yes there are. There are some yards in there. Because jeff my biggest pet peeve aside from not on the ball away is his inability or his. What am i saying. That may not inability his casual laws airfare fair that their team coming out of the locker room. I'd like to see them. Throw for twenty in the first half then those. Are you know what i mean. Instead of your down two touchdowns let's go no huddle and we'll get two touchdowns and throw for a buck thirty in the fourth quarter and it looks yes. There's no doubt some of these are empty. Yes but i'm watching everything and it's easy senate home for us. To say has the he hasn't played well. But if you dig deep. He's playing really good. Football imagine what would happen jeff. He wasn't on this team. Good grades i agree emmy screw i know i know i'm short on time. Another quick question for you who were winning. Mvp i russell wilson or cuyler murray and then i have a quick question. Go ahead and get the astros question. I'll answer that when we when when when we hang up while astros signed marcel osuna. Now all right. So there's your answer. I was going to say no as well. You don't think no shot to expensive. They're interested okay. Jeff thanks appreciated. Appreciate your phone call. And what's at play because he strikes out too much more interesting. Keep michael brantley right this team ball in play right. So that's that's fair to answer your question about an mvp. Here's a shocking thing. Both are gonna win one. I think but is time because this is the best time ever. And he's turned the ball over a little too much now last night you know played good football. They win a game and he does it. Duels against kyla murray. That is one hell of a question. Because i think murray got a chance to win more than one and going into this season. Russell wilson's never had an mvp vote and then he's gonna be has got to be a third thirty thirty thirty or thirty one so while he's probably got five or six good years in him. I would think him he could have ten right. Of course yes. So i'm gonna say russell wilson thirty i. I'll go russell wilson. I i actually think that if he if he has a great surge last six games he could still win it but rodgers the leader right now. Mahomes has close wilson. Josh allen had a good year murray's charging. I'll say this if russell wilson doesn't win it this year i'll say kyle maria win one. I think they're both going to win. One and i'm probably wrong on. That may be too hot. Take because i think russell wilson's phenomenal. I think they're both they're both going to be in the top five this year and russ may win it but i will be shocked if russell wilson leaves the nfl without an mvp. And i will be damned shocked. If of marie doesn't win one by the time he's twenty seven twenty eight years old or sooner last night was there and i would take marie over lamar jackson today without question. There's just Kyla murray comparison to lamar jackson before this before. Last night's game yards through nine games pair. Lamar jackson season the year before his nine at twenty seven. Thirty eight twenty seven touchdowns at twenty one touchdowns for lamari like he was ahead of him and everything. Listen the what's going to may end up winning. Be finishing second in this thing did. Yeah they're going to have to your top five dow dalvin cook hemlines. Dalvin cook is going to finish the highest of a non right today. He's he's a non reorder backfired right each and every everything but arizona because they have to win ten games yes. Ten or eleven games and cuyler has to get their sched- learning plus touchdown and keep the interceptions down. Their schedule is at pats. Rogers rogers right now. Fraud stays at this clip. Rogers winning the mvp this year but russell wilson was the winter two weeks ago so it can change in six or seven weeks. They should get four or five more right so i will tell you. This jeff was a great question. I i think both of them will but man do we got some court. There's going to be guys are going to have. Mvp seasons and get shut out on it because the other we got so many top heavy great players hell russell wilson even with his interceptions going to have an mvp year and still not win it because the way that the murray and rogers in an mahomes are plan. it's phenomenal. we got a loaded top-heavy position couple minutes before break. Let's get to biscuit before break. What's up man. Hey john with word all good amen. Amen with with the pandemic set in you know and for me personally. I don't crowds i. I haven't been to church since the pandemic what is it. What else there is it. A due on sunday you know. Even if it's a bad team. I watch football. You know what. I mean so yeah. Of course. I'm watching the game in both the texas and the cowboys suck but i'm watching both games but the game. I'm really interested in on. You know who's in common cousin back and forth What do you think the chances would be ready to raise. Up in the in the horseshoe. And something i think they got some I've been looking at more so this year. They they actually got. Yeah yeah biscuit. Thanks for the call on our specs. Pick of the week. I've been looking over this all week. Long i'm intrigued with this game. Because when we talk about indiana and we talk about the ninth ranked basketball team. We're talking about football. They got horses their quarterback. Big time. playmaker. I wanted to pick him. I did biscuit this week. I actually wrote it down plus twenty and a half and then i said now. Let me put the minus on ohio. State as much as i like indiana. I just think. Ohio states too good. And there's something fishy about this number. When it's that three touchdowns when you're the ninth ranked team in america they're going to the horseshoe i'm with you. I'm we'll be watching every snap at this game. And actually hope in indiana keeps this game. I just think the horses and ohio state are gonna pull away. And what do they have a chance. Hell yes they got a chance but can it continue to be sustained. I'm not sure. I would pick if there was twenty point. Spread in the in the big ten with any other team plan indiana. I'm not sure. I would choose any other team right now. But ohio state in the big ten we if they had a spread that big e. like francis of wisconsin had an eighteen point spread over indiana. I take indiana to get inside that spread. But i can tell inside that number but with this i just think ohio state is too good. I just do and so while. I think it'll hang around for a minute. The playmakers in the horses will rear their head. Eventually and the it. All respect indiana and i know you love them those guys but i think this is the week they come up short. How states just to get an. I actually picked ohio state to cover which is crazy. But the numbers out of whack for a reason. Yeah looks too good for indiana. Take and that's why the i would imagine the the smart are thinking. Go ahead and maybe that number make that number may go down beforehand. But i'll tell you what i'll take. I'll take ohio state at twenty and a half much to my chagrin at that. Yep sports talk seven hundred. We'll check the spread on that word started and where it ends before tomorrow biscuit. Good luck with that. One up next Ice cold takes stupid stuff. People say maybe fans are involved in this one for me who knows sports. Stocks have ninety time to crack one open h town comb. His bitter cold brew do stone cold seriously. The ice cole takes oath the week. The extreme cold. On the sean salisbury. Show sports talk seven hundred. You said my man biscuit called you back to the call. He's you know he's a hoosier. Love loves us hoosiers. He seems to be pretty confident in his hoosiers and said if you give him twenty he'll bitchy steak dinner twenty twenty points. I'll give him twenty. A matter of fact i'll i'll see a mistake and raise him. If he's a wind guy or tequila or a single malt scotch. I'll see twenty. And i'll raise him a bottle of the of of the best that goes with house that there you go go to specs after the state. That's exactly right. You know that's where it's going to be bought out. So hell i might even have a few unopened on my shelf already. So it i'd be happy to the matter of fact i'd be grateful to deliver them to biscuit. If in fact that happens and quite frankly biscuit. I'm actually pulling for you. I'd love to buy you a steak dinner with that. I don't think it's gonna happen. The numbers too obvious men. Everybody's going to that number is going to go down because why everybody looks this as a number ninth ranked indiana hoosiers big daddy's in the house. So this is ohio too big daddy with them. But i gotta tell ya biscuit you're on i'll take that bet. I'll take that bet the shoe but they what's what's what about the shoe don't you don't you who would you take. I take your side. Okay how about you joshua. I'm on your says. Well i think the end and it may be twenty three but i think in the end. They're just too much. I mean nine. This year is not the typical number nine. We'll think about last week. My miami was the number nine team and they were underdogs against virginia tech now. They ended up winning late by a point. But that's how we're looking at these things. The number nineteen and i have all the respect for indiana and i. I actually hope that happens. But i don't think it's going to so there you have it. And let's roll with the ice cortex. I'm going to the world of twitter. Rascal takes this week. There's a lot of ice cold. Takes you throw around about james harden situation as of late whether it's the coverage of it and the people that are you know try and sit here and say that it's already going to the nets and all of this stuff how. 'bout we just go to james harden general. There is the report from the athletic that said he was locked in committed to go for the season then well less than a week later. He wants to be traded to brooklyn but the one that gets me this week and it was brought backup on twitter. This is from september second two thousand seventeen. It was tweeted at three fifty three in the afternoon. That day samantha. Name edgar guerrero is twitter. Handles edgar guerrero twenty three. He tweeted never ever ever ever ever leave. Houston at j. thirteen with approximately five summation points. After all the nevers after all the never ever ever ever leave. Okay houston all right so we got the point. He didn't want him to leave. Houston is the point. James harden at time was on twitter. I believe obviously Answering people's questions or something. Two minutes later james harden responds to this. Never ever ever ever ever leave. Houston tweet by saying to edgar guerrero promise. I won't hashtag rocket for life. Oops this is why you don't tweet these things now. He very well still could be a rocket for or the rockets. Hold the cards. And we'll see if they they hold onto him for two years then he says well i've been stuck for two years. I'm not going anywhere now. i'm just gonna stay here. Don't tweet these things athletes kit because for life. Yes what. The internet has receipts. And this is the receipt of you being stupid and you've turned a fan base on you now because you say dumb stuff like this james harden here but my god don't do this that's his ice cold was gets for james harden like all right so it's a classic what brad don't just don't i won't in hashtag rocket for life. Whatever like significant others or people. I don't make a promise you can't keep right. We'll see if he can keep it but the least is least as approach changed a little bit. We'll find out if he gets to stay here and be a rocket for life for wants to fry joshua as you may know the nba has gone to an award. Show kind of like the. Nfl does every year last year. Hassan montage comedian. Pretty funny guy made a joke but seem more like a statement as well that doesn't look too good now in the past two months. Eighty got traded. Zion went i and lamelo ball got shipped to boarding school in australia. I can say that joke. Neither of us will ever make the nba draft but with the third pick in the two thousand and twenty nba draft the charlotte hornets selection. Lamelo ball from chino hills california twenty at the time. Now my bad comedy routine got to change a little bit. Maybe probably i liked that one. Like okay let me ask you this josh tobacco which you're saying and and really good ice cold take by both of you. Do you think he's going to be a star. No but he'll stick around more you know. Hook it a second or third contract all star by year three ever make an all star team. He's really he has a chance to but he's got a long way to go and his brother or just enough playmakers where they'll stick around. Be better than john wagner the. Yeah i think you'll be a good player on a decent team but nothing like i don't think he's gonna be what you would typically expect a third pick so you. He's not going to be john wall. You're not gonna be any of those guys. I imagine him more. Like a kind of like mike sane like lonzo. He's a good player. But i don't expect them ever to be a top three or four point guard or anything like that. I have a season where he probably pushes. Twenty points per game and that'll district would be because he should too much. I think he's going to be a chucker. You did no reason to believe that. Other than what i mean i just. I don't know that's what you're going with. yeah. I like both of them. All right i got one for you guys. Let me get to it. We saw a hail mary. That was of perfection last week. Right with in. This isn't going to be popular now. Just so you understand. Okay just so you understand and you know what the fools better do recognize you guys. It's not gonna be popped. This by me might is cold. Take me after this. You're gonna say now sean. I disagreed but we had a hail mary the other day. I take put out a poll question. It said who deserves more credit for the cardinals. Hail mary play almost twenty thousand votes. Eighteen percents had kinda murray. Eighty two percent said the andrea hopkins. Let me tell you this. And i think hopkins is the best hands in the league. I think there's nobody that's covered tighter and makes more catches in the league when i'm dogging separation but everybody covers him and he makes every play. It ain't close with the better. Play was kyla murray. So nineteen thousand eight hundred twenty eighty two. What's eighty two percent at twenty thousand. You do the math. You can figure that out You're wrong so i might taken eighty two percent of the nineteen thousand plus however many rows between sixteen five and sixteen seven somewhere in there. Whatever it is you. Fifteen thousand plus are wrong. He jumped in may catch. Because here's why he's spoiled us. He's made the catch like that in traffic. Maybe not under those circumstances of a game. but he's made great catches in traffic all the time. This is a normal occurrence with those those big mid-sized got it's always sad. I expected it and in three people. But i got news for you. Make it into guys miss fallen into your own sidelines. Thrown at fifty plus yards in the air with the perfect trajectory with three dudes there. So your guy can high point where he doesn't have to move off as mark and he can go up and grab it and you can't most guys can't get many on the most guys wouldn't even have been sacked because you remember escaped as well to throw it going to his right. I would've said okay. I'll give it to hopkins going to his left. He can't fire the right side to get it through the throw and normally that thing. It's hard enough to be accurate on one of those. If you drop back set your foot ground put your foot in the ground a hitch and with a clean pocket the all the talk and i think a lot of people hopkins. Trade is stupid hop get all that and he's a great player. It was a great catch. The throw was ten times better ten times better so sixteen thousand of you're wrong or you're eighty two percent love. The poll question should have been flip-flop. That's no disrespect to hop. Who's the a matter of fact hops better at his job right now. Closer to the top as far as number one in the league then then murray as it is. But i'm just telling you that that right. There was the the throw. Should've one nine ninety two ten the throw in the way he made it. It's not close so fifteen sixteen sixteen thousand plus of you missed on my skull taking sixteen thousand people today damn we. Yeah i would think so. I would think so good for you guys is take me on the catcher. The thrower you with me with you. Okay josh stupid. I think that they're both in presses but the throw you don't get to sit on. Take one i just the throw seems so much more. Like rogers throw that. I've seen it the catch. I haven't seen three guys be jumped on top in like haiti together. It i find the catch a little impressive. I don't. I don't think it's close and the catch was awesome. Seabra hader yeah. I listen and part of it is the spoiled part that hopkins has made. It's like oh dude. He makes those catch. How many times we've seen in mecca. Cats like that and traffic here right so it's not on him. It's just how spectacular all right. Think about what you guys real quick for go to break your sprint to your left you can get chips and told her shoulders turn or does the ball usually end up when you're momentum's going to the left. Where do you think that ball would have gone last night across your body and those dan you're out about your momentum with a k. Right it's almost like the matrix. He stopped was able to get it for that ball. He threw it back across his body but while his momentum's carrying him to the left he kept it in play perfect commandment great catch but this is a long receiver. If that ball's a foot lower guess who doesn't catch the ball he'd have to reach over the guy. The ball gets bad at dancing. Yeah yeah now. Once it got it in his paws spectacular because three dudes wouldn't have been able to check it. I was awesome catch. The throw is better. It just was because the normal human beings or normal quarterbacks good quarterbacks wouldn't have even be able to be in position to make the accurate part of that throw sportstalk. Seven is school. Takes coming back. Here taking your. Are you watching the game this weekend. With the texans if you are y if you aren't why sports talk seven hundred. Hey it's greg. Vision listened to the home of the astros in your home. Just tell your smart speaker. Play sports talk. Seven ninety on iheartradio zhong salisbury. Show continues. will you watch the texans this weekend. And why and if you won't why not aside from they're two and seven they're not good. Okay i get it but will you watch them. Are you still lying out. You're not a fair weather fan if you don't watch it just means that you're kind of disheartened and disenfranchise. And it doesn't mean you think they're going to the playoffs if you do watch while they're still maybe somebody out there who actually believes that. I can't buy into it. But i am with anthony. Anthony anthony lynn with anthony. Weaver on his team that they play hard. And they there's And he'll defend them through and through and he should but they're just not good. You can't be nine times in a row where you haven't played four quarters of football or even for the most part that people have dismantled you and it's not that he's not trying. It's not that he's not smart. It's not that they're not smart but they are at a position way too often. You can't have anybody who's a coach cannot watch that and look at it and say. Yep we're real close. We're good football team. You have good football players. They're not a good football team. You want some intriguing. Nfl news this morning glaze. first i all cleveland. They've lost myles garrett this week and he's being placed on the covid list. He's not going to play apparently so they need him miles away from the complex. Michael ian rapoport tweeted this about our regular guest on wednesday five minutes ago intrigue in new orleans saints have given quarterback tesa m- hill starters reps and practices week a source said so while james winston took over for injury breeze last week signs are pointing towards hill getting his first. Nfl start qb. If all checks out after practice. I'm gonna tell you this. If he does start at that tells you all. You need to know about james winston. He's not going to be there next year. Is the starter if they're needing a starter and i'm not the greatest fantasy player but if you're an espn. Tatum hill is a quarterback. Andy tied in pick him up. And you can play tight end. There's your fancy advice of the week. Don't take them in our lake debatable. Other right now. Josh already have maybe you suck. What's your record winning. That's all that matters. Whoa whoa call short answers again. And jj watt short. This week i lost carson an frigging mccaffrey. I can't carson carson. Chris playoff teams done. But i still have put him as a tight end and get all those points from the quarterback position right. Get that level of points. I tell it's normally tied in slash special teams guy right or whatever it is so you get the quarterback tight end. But it's the tight end nice and then you can still add your quarterback in your. What's that player called the flash player right suck it. I got him. Did you say suck it. I got sucked. Got him all right. Tell him again on the suck it suck it. I got him there. You go all right. Well let me. Here's an interesting question just ask. I don't know if it is. But we'll tell you all you need to know about james winston and what sean payton feels about tasting hill and jameis winston. Yeah we all thought well as this now if tasted him goes out there and the game. But it's the change of pitching in the second series. Janice winston comes back out there. He'll you right. But i'm playing dammit. If he took starters reps. And if we go by what sean payton has been trying to convince us for two years that he is the starter in waiting for if drew brees retires that he believes he's a quarterback then this validates that i mean they paid him six million a is last year so you got to at least see if he's worth so if he can now if he goes out there and lights up jameis winston will not see the field. Now he does give you what the other two don't great legs and when it comes to his threat with his inside zone runs and heck he's kind of like a smaller version of when it comes to those runs like of cam. Newton righty takes. You know what he comes in on third and two that are going to play the downhill inside. He's coming power and going but now what he gives you hell. They do the fake tim. Tebow power jump pass passing the red zone there so many different ways you could use his versatility but this is. This is a glaring. If this is the case of east starting and stay in the quarterback throughout the game glaring on how they feel this. Nobody can tell me well. James only been there nine games. They know he went into the game last week. But he's the tastes milks better right and that they feel that the taste or look and this is also for the audition money his campaign eight million bucks as taking money out of jameis winston's pocket because james may not if you sit behind some if jason tatum hill wins and they play good football for the three weeks. Let's say drew's back in three weeks. James never see the field so you know you're waiting to audition for something bigger now you'd have to go out there and if you're a another team next year say do we take the chance that he's learned that he stood that did he's protecting the football more. It's interesting dynamics and be forced into staying in new orleans or somewhere else for a similar one year. Backup type price. Yeah i feel like people forget. It keeps up like this right. Tease of who is really good at byu. He just got hurt. Every single year. Shredded his need like two or three years in a row on a typical on a church mission to i think he wanted to. Lds mission. because he i think he didn't he leaves taste meals. Gotta be twenty. Seven right now tweets ever twenty. I think he's back he'd like it. He had a bunch of eligibility because he got red shirt and then he also had the okay. He's third he's been the league. What six years now. no. I think five years three. I think he left college. Five seven fourth year. Okay fourth year. So yeah he did. Because you're you're twenty seven years old because he because remember he went to. School went on a church mission for two years. Came back started was a really good. I mean matter of fact you remember. He was getting a lot of national talk. Here's a heightened. fear god's exactly right shredded. His knee came back. Everybody loves shr shredded as the twice so he went. There went on a mission. Had two years is grown ass. Man i mean but the comeback stories pretty impressive for his resilience to come back but yeah so he's thirty. I thought he was twenty eight years old or so. They're already so he's been a leaker on. This is year four and actually played more years at byu or was on. Byu's campus logger. Five because he had the year. Good god yeah. He went anyone on to your church. Thirteen games and twenty thirteen point five one and twelve well after the thirteen games. Everybody the next year going in had him as a heisman. Big time then shredded twice. Before that year he had gone on a church mission. If i'm not mistaken for two years for the church which that's what would enable him know in one thousand nine hundred twenty one and nineteen years old so he would have either gone five games than one game so like was he goes. You know you have did. They're gone on a mission came back played. Oh came back and he came back. You know yeah he was he start playing until he's twenty one right. You went on a mission okay. Came back and started playing now. He may have been on campus as his first year. Yeah but then they take off and go on a church mission comes back plays those that one year is a heisman. Hopeful comes back blows out. His knee comes back. The next year blows out his knee again and that was that so yeah he he would not have got thirteen his president injury right when he thirteen year that he was talking about. They played thirteen games. He had almost three thousand passing yards. Had thirteen hundred rushing yards nineteen passing. Td's and tin was the most versatile versatile quarterback they had since steve young stevens pass a great feat. So that's what happened. Hasn't even he originally didn't even commit to. Byu know and then ended up going there. So i made it to harvard stanford right and then ended up going so i'm going to byu. Say i'm sorry. He went on to where he went on his mission to south of did he. Where do you go say okay. Pretty sure he went on a his church. I don't know where he went. But that's why he would come into the league at twenty seven years old tech those two years off to go dentistry mish. I'm yeah no. He played after his mission sportstalk. Seven nine he went to austria. There you go all right. Shot a bill. Quarterbacks longtime friend sean salisbury. This is the sean salisbury show. Sports talk seventy hour number four.

He's probably the offensive line coach on that team. I think he was was the denny. Green's team but mike was a mike might have been the line coach on. That might have been. He had a good team. Hell ever the right couple of them. Oh yeah mike had some. He had a good run. Show then a good run chug. And i love love horses to. He's a guy if we got him on he he had nine and seven teams eight and eighteen yet. He had some good good talent. They never lived up but mike. Mike had He did a good job. Hell of an offensive line coach with my teammate to different cities in seattle and minnesota great guy greg. How long ago did you think. Danny green pass away. Denny's been now had to be a half dozen years that's actually more four four four. Now i know doesn't when i got that news. It was devastating. Yeah he and his good wife awful man.

He was living in del mar and live in a good. Life was a bummer. Remember was it. D- i did. I was asking me something about. We're going bulk Sports talk seven hundred so you guys give me a little more insight on your fantasy. Football stuff real. Quick it sucks. I do most calmer friends. The colon is mainly just completely. Hate it because you you wonder about her like everybody gets everybody's been hurt this year right. It's i of really. We play the league here that has been. We've been doing it for years now. One hundred seventy five bucks to play write. I mean it's not like i mean that's the winner. It's nice i've wanted to. I think. I think i might still be the only person that's won multiple times. So you're you're the king here. Well it's been it's been three or four years now since i've won it was the reigning champion is wearing the belt right now. I don't even know who wanna last year. I don't have a clue i have. The belt actually is the last time i wanted. I never gave the belt. Whoever it's still my closet was a forty or us been. I don't go to ross and cliff is who come comes to mind. It's not mad. Thomas which i i think matt thomas is in first place this year. Don't wear this fourteen kershaw his ass code. Mattie yeah okay now i know obviously why people do it but doesn't it drive. You a little bit crazy. Yes you your team's not on auto is it you you do every okay so with that in mind honestly curious. Do you do it for the money or for the ego. I do for the money. The winning the bucks only seventy five win or go home like a grand okay. So there's there's you got a second place fries first second. I don't think we'd do. Third third gets their money. Back gets their money back. Second win some money and there's highpoints every week so it can win back which child at high points one source more ego. Maybe some of them. its about ego. i want the damn money. So for the seven ninety league. It's more so just kind of having fun with it like the lineup. Day or wednesday and kinda just forget about it. And sometimes i forget who's on my team because i don't want to worry about it all sunday or actually get upset about things but in my other league with my buddies i've been we've been playing it for ten eleven years is a good way just to keep in touch and have a little friendly banner with each other each week and have something to talk about. Does anybody take two buddies. That aren't delay their names out of kicked to take it too serious people out already. Why because they were. They were delicious including looting area. We've had that issue in insider trading. I think we do and win one and two to try and win the money extra money type of over the team you took over that person colluded with somebody else and we. I think jettison them from the set from the iheart houston league really. Yeah now now that the to me the one thing. We've never done which we should is. There needs to be some sort of shaming for last place. I agree you got to call the last. Especially if you're a sports person in your in a. I'm losing to gordy right now. He had two players last night. The score touchdowns he had metcalf in carlos hyde. So i'm probably going to lose him but he's in last place right now. We need to figure out somewhere to to shame him but like the worst. Uc those stores like somebody gets a tattoo. Yeah my brother has been in a league forever and the loser of that league every year i swear to god. They have to drive around in their truck visible at all times for a year the others will check because they all close. I don't think they'd probably keep it visible all the time. It has to be visible in their truck in the back seat or wherever year round. It's about three foot long. That's huge toy. For a woman bilbo baggins. There you go barbie doll and its long black bill blowback about three foot long and about cloth again size thickness maybe more than baseball others say this. I'm never getting a tattoo of fantasy. My brothers over fantasy frigging you. You like football too much urinate or you drank too much. Then you made the bet so have you lost friendships over fantasy. Football no i. There's always that cycle. You can't do that right. It's like politics losing friends over politics. Why the hell am i gonna lose friends over you. Pick a game over mayor. Yeah you're pissed that i will make a trade with you now. I don't do that now. Never so bilbo baggins resides in. Somebody's truck it's been in my brothers shrink a few times so brothers. Been been totent- it around. He's not currently thank god. I don't think. I don't think he was one year old to see the i would imagine. Yes and so. It does get intense and k. Yeah collusion's a bad thing when you're you know collude and put the first and second prize together and split them. Basically tried to combine teams one guy eliminated from the playoffs and it was just like this isn't even close in then. They tried to say. Oh no you're being a jerk. Just you did this. And you didn't do that is no word. Your act obviously trying to cheat. Yeah no cheating. Allowed and fantasy. I just i don't know man. I just can't do that and watch football the way i want to watch it but god bless you guys for doing it. I think it's still. I think it's awesome. I love open. But i m in the misery of it because again i've i've literally i my running back i had. I got the first pick up. Never had the first pick in our draft. Mccaffrey okay. I also took chris carson. Who's been good when he's played for fantasy but he's not been healthy and then on top of that. My my like was this year. okay. I'm going to focus on making sure. I have three solid running backs. Running back was marlon. Mack gone after week. One right my been screwed so let me ask you this real quick. We'll go to break. But who's the leading fantasy points. This year kamera narrower murray or dalvin cook. Maybe cooks way up there. Yeah when imagine all right well. This guy is just interesting. If you're a fantasy football player another question how deep into it are you. This is the only thing that's play for the heart of it. Especially if your team's losing texans fan this is usually the only thing that keeps you. I mean they've been writing but like you have to you choose teams. I want to help you choose. The players based on who your favorite team is like if you love the texas. I think man. We're not very good. Do you take those players just because you gotta rooting interest on the team. Are you willing to sacrifice your team in fantasy to choose your team that the play for your regular season. Favorite team old discusses money find fantasy football. Actually i it. It's intriguing to me yet. I don't want to do it. But i like to listen to everybody else's misery right just to hear how fantasy goes got to got misery right now. Sports talk seven ninety. Shot south reshow with mc. And josh celebration. Start more. sean salisbury. The sean salisbury show sport socks seven. Ninety new said mc schefter has confirmed tastes hill starts right yes tastes. Hill will start at quarterback. Sunday for the new orleans saints as first career. Start getting the practice. Reps and james winston is his backup unbelievable unbelievable. Let's get to we're talking. This has to have something to do with money too. I mean they gave tasteful two years. Twenty one million got validate the coin. If you take a look at some point hard to pay a swiss army knife the money you're the you'd be paying a regular starter everyday position got but he's pretty valuable. But sean payton loves it man. Frigging loves him and he said that any any put his money where his mouth as my starting quarterback. Yeah interesting willie. What's up man. Appreciate the time guys appreciate. The show is the funny thing you were talking about fantasy football. I mean i'm in houston native. We lost oilers. And wow it's been grim. Obviously with the texans. It's been granted. I originally got into it just because we had such a bad team to follow the players that were relatively good. Looks like a you know. Aaron foster or andre johnson saw those players and fantasy football but honestly it. It just hasn't been a good time for me and houston is a forest fan. So that's kinda reason. Why follow them. And i think for me. Like i'm gonna competitively kinda like you. Guys i get you know pretty competitive coworkers that i play with keeps the banner up in the today this. I'm to get some extra money on. So i appreciate the time and i'll hang up and maybe before you go. I was going to ask him. I wanted to ask him if he's been in they've like if it's co worker. They fought enough. They're so competitive. Like eight them a lot. You know how when you lose a game as a player. He used to get to me. Because i long did it fester all while because i used to be a lot more broke than i am now. I'm not. I'm still broke but not nearly as i used to be like the money part of it i used to cringe over. Having to pay one hundred seventy five bucks a year goal. Of course you did. Yeah and don't three pay installment plan in the fantasy football league. Is it pay paying full. Read this before the before. The drought after them every day. So they don't bright then. You're not going anywhere you'll know who to collect from when it's all over matt. Thomas will had math league commissioner. He'll he'll get on you. I would imagine maddie maddie. Seems like he'd have it on a spreadsheet. Yeah he does because it all figured out if thomas also since it will be used to. I don't know if he doesn't anymore. Because i haven't won anything. He used to give the winner your money via check matt. Thomas writes checks no last year to cash checks but to ride on the line to check and doing cursive. He's that guy. I'm calling you out matt. Thomas heck reiner matt's. I know he's up doing man he's got a call in greg. Cook our check writers. Greg cody telling him he feels. He's he is saying that the he'll do it the i am old school to the point. Where if i i still would stuff. You can go put notes in your computer. I still i gotta send it home now. I still write notes. Delic for instance on certain things like spreads that. I wanna pick this. I wrote some notes of things. That i gotta get done this weekend. I didn't put it in my phone. Where the calendar reminder. I write it on a piece of paper. I've only you write them down. I i only only things. I write down still like grocery list because i don't want to. I carry something like she. She just sent it to me on my phone. Like i need to go on the way home and i'm going to write it down before i don't keep open up silkair if he's paper and drop in the trash i'm done like i don't forget and i don't want to carry the phone. Keep looking at the screen. Goes off right iron mask because then you get the whole right on paper. But i have matt thompson. Listen i gotta get quick call from. He's still writing checks. How about this still writing. Check real quick more on james winston and the same thing schefter just tweeted this jaimes. Winston will not be part of any offense packages. Sunday for the falcons. Well that s hill. Yeah that answers. The question is he gonna play part of it and then james comey. He must look terrible. Looked terrible or in a deep doghouse. Somehow it's incredible. Yeah and remember. Last year they had the same opportunity. Teddy came in and one five games for him so he and teddy what we go five and all you went got paid. So something's not right there and josh to your point earlier on fancy football this week for tastes mill. Espn has said he's going to remain eligible on your fantasy football as a tight end this week but they will reassess after this week. So right now. I'm sitting glorious. I got the tight end spot. Baby suck it iheart media league you said suck it suck it there. You go suck. It's on your mind today as far as let people know you've got tased him. I'm getting jacked up again. There you go. You should be juiced okay. So bad matt thomas. If you're out there call. Matt does not write checks. He matt still goes to the grocery store rattle. Share mango writes the grocery bills with checks. And all that now. I think i would assume that he doesn't but he's written me a check twice for that lake. A legit check. A floral print does matt us then mo you think. Get it for me. Last year i got third place. So i got my money back and i had already paid so and i think i wanna point total so you gotta then mode. What's the bad with so yeah. What's your cash app. is kevin mow. The way to go last year has been sitting in seventy vindman. Go there you go. I'll i'll send you a video of me. Saying hello or something. Cooky greg cook check guy too he was. Yeah definite. i've seen greg cook write a check. Somewhere is andy kalou. check how. india's a indies. a cash guy. probably all yeah big sick all that money all that money and e makes shopping cash guy. i'm indian. I sat at the bar when we were going to miami for the super bowl because we got flight was delayed all day. An indie bought the drinks and ethane cash. Here's what i think about. Indie clue allow other fact. I think he's phenomenal dude. In a great guy one of my favorite people on the planet he really yes and he and he wants to know something about everything which i love. He so inquisitive about since we haven't a great talk about his country nigeria and came from yesterday. I'm just i'm fat. He's just a great well rounded person but he also reminds me of a guy. I think indy knows where every penny spin i mean. 'cause he's in real estate and andy reminds me of a rice guy. He is the type of guy because his teammate. I don't know where they teammates he. And courtney hall was my center in san diego. They both went to rice. Both brilliant guys to and see hall was the same way see hall. It's like rice because they're so smart right did it. And it doesn't mean they don't spend money but they know where if it was twenty seven dollars and twenty eight cents. Where it's going you. I know that you don't just not for me. I'd say that twenty seven dollars. Twenty five cents a bench. Andy knows twenty seven. Twenty eight. like my buddy courtney hall and everybody here knows great play. He was starting in the league. Twenty when when when he was phenomenal. But that guy. Andy seems like the guy with his knows everything that's going on. You know what i'm saying. Honestly and i could picture by greg cook. Just write a check just to just to give people a hard time am gonna write you a check to make sure you have to go cash it right but yeah so. There's certain people and i i know matt. Thomas has a spreadsheet for this league. Oh no matter not organized. He's got it all taken care of so the traits of it like i said i listen andy guarantee. He knows exotic he probably knows the zip codes of every single grossing. Telomeres real estate. But greg could tell me cheap. So he'll tell andy that he would for years. Yeah oh he would okay. 'cause i never heard him say oh so he call. You did response. you know. it's called a cheap basser. Those two together priceless funny. Be today with them for his weekly. He talked about john. Jones gets after him to talk about another really. Really shawn's we him. And i were talking about my master's degree shawn's going after his doctorate. Sean should be in the hall. Let me taste. And i'll tell you nothing. Signed for being a great football player talk about somebody who knows something about everything his business business. It got like a computer floor computer for computer. He's schanz always been that way shawn's type of guy while everybody else is you know. Playing video games sean. Jones is doing business deals when he was a player with his computer. That's that dude is so he should be in the hall. Then he was in he. He gave me a last bit of encouragement to go. Go get your masters student. He's even said it. He goes go get it. And he's getting his doctorate. And i will get mine after i master. So he's still all those years of knowing sean jones and sticks out bright man just a guy who wants to keep educating himself love. We've going to get real quick. Zach john clayton coming up. What's on your mind man in missouri city. What's going on guys. I just wanted to shout at a. m. cereal cook in regards to take them his fantasy play this week. He's actually been named these starting quarterback this week against atlanta and now i am debating on actually starting hand over shawn watson. Thank you very much we appreciate it absolutely respondents pointed that out yes we have been discussing he starting and he's available at tight end if you have. Espn going to say. I don't know if i'd start him over to sean. But i'd start him over. Like starting over to sean. Start them at your tiny end spot. He's eligible on. Espn is a tiny started. There it's pretty obvious. Pretty easy started. Yeah measure tiny and or even your flight right. You got the ability to do it. All in grave travis. Kelsey wouldn't start him at the flex position. There he goes so there you have it. He is starting this week. We'll see if atlanta new orleans continue this run and stay in the hunt for the division without debris stock seven ninety. John clayton next. This is the sean salisbury show. Very sports talk seven ninety. Two professor john clayton grateful to have him on. My guy weekly always planned for down johnny. Let me let me start here. Welcome in the professor as he does. Every week joins me. John is the the cleveland browns. I'm still trying to make out how i feel about them. Now myles garrett under covert protocol. How real are they. John would put your finger on the pulse of them for me there. They're good enough team to compete for the card clearly. They're not going to win the division because they're not as good as baltimore. They're not as good as pittsburgh's but it's an interesting t because what you can see chemists. The fans kids come over and done a very good job unlike last year where the coaching was just terrible. He's come in with a plan and the plan is to run the baltimore running the ball. At least the particularly to pro caliber running backs they are able to take a little bit of pressure off a baker mayfield's. I think what you can see that know this. This is not just because of baker. This is because that's seven chemical stepan skis offensive style. That's what he had in minnesota and that's what he likes to do defensively. There's a lot of talent there. 'cause you're talking about a team right now on offense that has six guys that have been to the pro bowl on offense for guys have been to the pro bowl on december so the palace there to be a wildcard. But it's still not a team that's going to allow you johnny. Let let me ask you real quick before we get four downs of the teams. That aren't called kansas city or pittsburgh or green bay. The ones that we all talk about. Is there a sneaky team. That's gonna make the playoffs. That's dangerous and maybe set up for january that we're not giving enough credit to Probably not i mean both teams john in buffalo hang in in january could hang in there. Because you know if their defense can get better that's been. The surprising thing is that they've been great on offense but their defense struggles to stop the run and it's not as good as it has been Particularly in the past couple of years giving up like seventeen eighteen points a game. It gives up more yardage right now if they can tighten some things up on defense josh allen and that three receivers said is good enough to Really be a factor because when you start the handicapped the afc. You start with pittsburgh and kansas city. Then you go to baltimore. Which of course the team right now starting to have issues as a major issues and then you go to buffalo because then there's a big gap after that so that that could be one in the. Nfc is just kind of a a sorting out process right now because you know each team is the top teams are good but they all have issues. I mean like for example. You look at green bay. They can't stop the run and they have a defensive gives up a little bit too much. Then you look over at the new orleans saints okay. they Their defense has been up and down and now they have no drew brees for about two three. Maybe four weeks seattle. of course they're passing defense Hasn't been a big problem and defense totally. It's been a big problem. So it's a little bit more balanced as far as where things are in the nfc where the afc have been pretty much three or four clear choices. Johnny real quick. Yes or no and in one sense. So i can get to four. Downs will the miami dolphins make the playoffs debatable. I think that You know they they right now have a good chance but you know when you got nine teams that are sitting there six and three one thing that could go wrong could lead you out there you go. Let's play four down. The stakes are enormous to play. Four downs with sean salisbury and professor. John clayton first down the saints announcing tastes them. Hill will start at quarterback. Do they have a better chance to win with him as the starter this week I questioned it because Obviously sean payton doesn't because he saw the came as winston go out last week in the second half and not do well with pretty six for ten and harley was able to move the ball. But i i just wonder because i mean you have receivers in this league throw more passes than than hill particularly in some gadget. Plays and things like that. And so i just don't know now again They paid him over ten billion dollars a year. Which of course stunned everybody. And i guess he is a candidate to take over the starting job at drew. Brees isn't there. But i still wonder. And that's why i guess it's fortunate for them that they got this injury to drew brees and they're making this decision when it gets some easy games coming up but we'll see if that works. I question it johnny. No what's interesting. I think we all do but maybe we should stop it now. We got to see how he performs started. It's different when you're coming in as a swiss army knife in gadget guy. Can you sustain dropping back. Doing what drew says making plays with your feet but also the one thing tastes meal. I would imagine it's to want to have a tendency to bail quicker than going through in this team's built on one to get the third progression. Gimme the sixty yard completion. Let's keep it moving. I'm anxious to see him as the guy throwing the shallow crossers. The swing routes the screens. The curl route all those not a one or two play drive for him but a sixty five play game. I'm anxious but maybe we should start by an end to sean payton. He's around him every day he sees. He's swears by and keeps telling us. City key is a quarterback and can be their future quarterback. He's got the former first pick of the draft on his roster james winston and he started a guy over him maybe we oughta start believing in the fact that tastes hill is a better answer than we think as a fulltime quarterback. We'll see second down. What does this mean for jameis. Winston's future means that he's got to be in the mix for quarterbacking someplace else next week next year. And what team who knows Certainly did was go to sean. Payton taking one point one million dollars just to try to maybe relearn and re educate himself at the quarterback position. And try to do it this way but i think that you can see that. This is an experiment that right now has not worked out for him with the opportunity to play and that probably puts them in a low market position for next year. so but clearly. If you're jameis winston and you don't get the chance to start when you have an opportunity like this. It's time for you to move on after the season. Yeah i this was. This was an audition year. The not addition for the saints in an audition for other teams. And if you're not beating tasting hill done doesn't speak well on jameis winston's ability. We know he can throw it. But his ability to protect the ball. And for sean payton not to trust him. It may single out message to others if this keeps up like this for three or four weeks and tesa mills stays the starter and then drew. Breeze comes back in Jameis winston have to go find another place to play and it won't be for starting money. I think he had the teddy bridgewater idea in his mind. And that's not going to happen for him if this is the case and it stays way. The audition hasn't worked. We may never ever ever the best season. You may see. James winston ever have again was the last year when he threw thirty plus touchdowns and thirty six. You may never get to see him as a full time starter in. This was an audition year. And it doesn't look like the audition worked out well for them down down. How big of a threat are the baltimore ravens. This year are the baltimore. Ravens are still big threat because on papers they have great defense and they have A lotta thing going on with their running game all that stuff. But i think you can see there are and i think what you. I think you could see his last year. Nobody could figure out what to do with lamar jackson now. People have figured out what to do with are jackson has even lamar says a couple of weeks ago. That people were calling out there. Plays on defense while they're looking over at lamar and that's not encouraging their their ability. Right now to run. The ball is less. Obviously losing marshall janda on the offensive line and ronald stanley stanley. That hurts and then on defense. that's what i think. The big thing now with the injuries because you take brandon williams out collapse campbell out. And they they. They struggle to stop the run metric. We had a bad game last week. And then you know that as good as an economic way is rushing the quarterback. He's not as good on the run stopping. And so that's an issue. So all of a sudden they go from a number three seed to a number seventeen. I mean they're still gonna make the playoffs. They're still good enough. But they they need brandon williams and clay campbell back. Yeah i. I'm gonna go this john. I think the baltimore ravens are a little bear in trouble if they lose this football game this week and get to six and four. They're starting to put themselves in danger of not making the playoffs. And i know on paper. They look great and john. Harbaugh and awesome coach. They're not as explosive on offense right now. Ronnie stanley being hurt. You mentioned all the other things about injuries. Getting guys back on the field. I'm telling you that we always have that team. And it's a long to go. What fourteen and two and then to possibly be in position where you gotta deal with. Maybe missing the playoffs. This is an important time. And if you're the reigning mvp better elevate running and throwing the football and you gotta find ways to win. The baltimore are a little bit vulnerable right now. They capable of going on a big run. But i'm gonna tell you. The i never thought i'd say this earlier in middle. Should i say middle to late november that the baltimore ravens are endanger not making the playoffs. The way the rest of the afc plan they better pick it up. Fourth down does home field advantage matter this year in the playoffs Probably not. Because i think you can see now last week was the first real week. Good week for home field because You know more teams when coming into it. There were sixty five sixty seven and one and i think you can see his pandemic Your guest worse that more teams may just say okay to eighteen teams right now that are allowing People into the stadium where what at hurst is it You know you don't have. The crowd can cause a false. Starts the crowd that can energize the team on defense or offense all those different things and so won't be as big of an advantage but still it rather play at home than be on the road because again it's a little bit of an inconvenience to fly and do all those things and pretty much be locked into a hotel for a day or two and of course you may have to even as you get later in the playoffs. Go into a bubble but no home to an advantage is obviously not as big as it was because again as of two weeks ago the first time in nfl history yet. More road teams winning home teams. And i'm going to say it's bigger than we think. Not as big as it used to be. But i think what's bigger than me think. And it had nothing to do with fans in the stands. John for meat has to do with weather and certain quarterbacks that are going to be in the postseason that aren't equipped to play in january right now and serious because of their lack of physical skills. When i say physical skills i mean deal with inclement weather if they're getting hit and the winds blowing and we see we saw in cleveland. What was what's happened twice this year with weather last week against the texas throwing the ball think about philip rivers if he can't set his feet and they are not running the ball and you hit him. Early is good as he is his arm. Strength is not the same. He has to throw everything on time if he does. He's great go into pittsburgh brutal on him. If it's wendy. Or cleveland and the same thing goes with with a drew brees. Drew brees is not set up in green bay january tenth or fifteenth. Plan a playoff game if it's cold the winds blowing because while he's great. If you take away the horizontal game it matters. So i think with some of these veterans that a young and then patrick mahomes go on the road anywhere. Russ wilson can play anywhere. Not all of them can. So it's going to be the outdoor factor for some of these teams and the wind and weather factor. That some of these veteran quarterbacks may not be able to handle and the offense may not be set up for january football. Johnny great stuff. I hope you have a great one. we'll be off for thanksgiving week so you enjoy it. We'll we'll catch back in two weeks ago. Appreciate it happy thanksgiving to the professor sports seven. Come back to finish it up. Real quick the sean salisbury show continues in india. No now you know when we come about sports talk seven ninety-one down here on a friday.

I know that's man all right. Let me go around the few games. Pick okay over the weekend. Will we hear anything about james heart. Yeah there will be nothing solidify. No it'd be this team's called about anything serious so we're still sticking to thanksgiving weekend is the thing is by win. Will know by right josh. What about you yeah. Yeah i I said earlier this week. That i don't think it happens. This offseason next off seasons more likely. And i'm sticking to. That will a name surface just out of nowhere for the gm job here. We start here a popular name. No not yet. Okay will indiana beat ohio state. Now i'm with you would take the points to. I thought about it early that i just don't josh any chance. I'll give him a chance just because they've shown that they are a pretty good team but man house day clemson but those are the different level in those conferences. And there's nothing indian has done that showed me that they can compete at that level. Does clemson does does trevor lawrence get back into the heisman trophy race. This weekend. He has to with all these games. being post. think they play florida state. If i'm not mistaken there think about how far. Florida state's fallen. Who's thirty plus point favorites. And your quarterbacks missed two weeks. And you're i believe aren't they playing in tallahassee. I wanna say yeah. And if thirty point favorites they cover they cover. Forces ter tore stay was losing to jacksonville. Who's gonna win the damn heisman. Zack wilson joan. They all he will. He's a leading candidate right now. Touchy jones keeps playing this way now. The trevor lawrence and mr began doesn't have any covert problems and that jones s do keep doing this. He wins it. he's the he just doesn't have just don't give it away leading seventy eight and a half yes phenomenon. Thirty nine and is played as way possibly into the first round which. I didn't think was going to happen this year. It's good for him all right. Does mike gundy after five games of bedlam in a row do he. Does he finally get oklahoma in norman. I think you will okay. Oklahoma oklahoma point favorites. What do you think josh. I'm gonna go you just because honestly i don't believe really either team even though you take bet in the over in the game i'll take it over fifty nine and a half. I take any over here. They may get to there by early in the third quarter. All right who the. Why do i lose my mind. Who's the ut play this week. They're off their postponed. Outright candidates exactly would have been a big spread. yes and then get finally to the texans. Two-point favorites are the new england patriots. In rg stadium patriots. Straight up you money line. I take patriots to cover easy. Okay cover the cover the to yes of money. Line do it. The forty eight and half. I would go the under thinking. I'm taking the under as well but the patriots are. The texans are going to stop the run. The football josh. I mean i think handmade roach for hundred something yards in two rushing. Td's and that's it's not even that close. What it sucks is it i. I i wanna take texans. But i don't think they're gonna win. I'm taking the patriots as well. This looks like a twenty four. Twenty twenty three twenty five game where the were. The patriots went twenty seven seventeen patriots. Right oh yeah because you said the patriots favor to you. I'm saying so. If they were taken the money line for them to win straight up with the underdog right. Okay for some reason. I thought now patriots got to be their dogs. They're the dog right. But the texans are going to write the dogs. You would've taken them and it's the money line talking absolutely so i'm actually surprised. They're actually the favorite on. That tells you a world about what the pay with the vegas about the The houston side. We all three taking the patriots. Hopefully were wrong and not sure we will be in. I'd say well that's okay because the draft of that's right. We don't have that traffic. It's seven ninety clue. Chris gordon next in the trenches filed by the matt. Thomas show rawson and the team this afternoon. You guys be safe out there for josh. Cnn mc. i'm sean. We don't ever take you for granted we appreciate. You have a great one.

Bill quarterback longtime friend. sean salisbury. This is the sean salisbury show. I welcome command on a thursday edition. shot south for show your sports talk seven ninety with them. See and josh see Well you excited about kenyon martin. Junior wouldn't be seriously. Who wouldn't he had the same neck. Ted as as dad also pieces toughest is all matters right. Always remember kenyon martin for his neck tattoo flips. Yeah those are unique. Tets amounts of kidding martin's necktie. Okay and kenyon martin junior rocket that arkansas guy the thing is lasting arse want say alex no not soul. I love alex trebek's jeopardy. He had a very common name but he was first team all. Sec he'd scored twenty points a game there. He's sitting odd but the thing is i mean he probably has flaws his game but if he could score i mean they can't hurt right. He'll be always score will yeah. He's on a contract will will. I'm just it was a night of The rockets to the sixteenth pick. no they. Don't we'll give that away to do detroit. You take on. Trevor rees four point six million to do it for a second round pick so we don't have to pay a reason and we can have the full in l. a. And then they get rid of that. Pick for an extra million bucks to go back and get kenyon martin. Junior there was. There was a motivation for everything they did last night. Dole hate you. You can go ahead and it was a lot of things going on the news before the draft of klay thompson a lower right leg injury coming off a you can go ahead and left knee crossing the warriors season ending. Yeah it's theories. Yeah we'll know today. I mean there's talk that it's a he'll there's talk that it's The achilles what happens sometimes is your over kind. I'm not speculate on. He did this or not. But i know having had surgeries on one leg that the other hip back other parts of your body. Start to your gate changes in your you just do you. Favorite during although rehab in the offseason. He starts. Well why am. I saw my left ankle or what. But i don't know if this is the reason it could have come down on somebody. I don't know what he was doing to train. None of us do for the most part. He was training in southern california and he is a workout machine and unfortunately there's talk that he could miss the season and if it is the worst i mean it happens about thirty to forty minutes sixty minutes or less before the warriors picked so the initial thought was well now. Are they going to go. Try to take lamelo ball of fees there or edwards if it switched and ball was the first pick because does it change their strategy in meaning. You know obviously now wiggins more emphasis on him and they love to play perimeter and then you see what wise men's all about that he is exactly what in a weak position in the nba. As far as overall he runs the court he seven one he can shoot but he'll develop an offensive game. He's long play offense and defense Can get to the basket. But he is extremely athletic. Got nasty at him. He's rim protector and he doesn't have to do much offensively. But you know. Get some offensive rebounds but the rim protector and then they can develop them and it would have been a lot easier with klay thompson here. But we'll see today at some point today. They'll they'll discuss and announce what the prognosis for klay thompson. That was as we waited on. James harden stuff and russell westbrook here the big news before the draft was obviously in. It literally came down within an hour or so before the draft last night. So klay thompson was weight him. That does change the course of a team that thought they were an nba finals team. Now they they're still playoff team. Yeah i mean there's still a playoff do we said it like a week ago that they may be the favorites because they had the rest and they didn't have the return like everyone and with the ceiling. I mean when you talk about of the three guys and the first three picks and even if you want to throw patrick williams there with the fourth pick of the bulls. Who's a good player to. Williams is out of florida state. If i'm not mistaken. Cnn you don't get to see much of the for people who didn't see much of these guys this year. Well you saw three games. Wiseman before he was we didn't have the normal learn of lawn and wise men who played three games and then had to take it off because of a twelve game suspension and then just decided hell with it. I'm to get ready for the nba draft. Third pick so when he when you parley it out and say okay eight. Like we do with quarterbacks running backs or anybody else five six eight years now the best player of the the the most instant impact possibly maybe ball. He just plays no defense. Edwards is pretty good at both ends good body physical but if you take ten years from now if they will reach their potential. I mean you've got a seven foot. One guy who runs the court like anthony davis and listening to penny hardaway talk. He said he'll be the first he said. There's nobody faster end in in the league at his position than him. And so he's got some development to do but the klay thompson thing put a put a a somewhat of a monkey wrench in the western conference or at least in golden state's finals hopes maybe depending on what happens with the rest of the rest of the conference. No james harden no west russell westbrook trades yet. And as you mentioned a reason gone seen gray like stuff going on here. Yeah are they want to get away from luxury tax like we heard everybody say they want and they're probably gonna know they are now. I mean they have a full mid level exception available to them to you which is how much money nine point. Four million okay. So ten million this thing out. They're gonna use that. Why wouldn't you but we'll be able to know. When is free agency start tomorrow. I think it's today at sometime today or this week as tomorrow whenever at midnight. Probably have an idea pretty quickly if they're signing somebody that if they don't if they aren't getting on if they aren't gonna use it well then we know what's coming. They're not worried about being actually get competitive. They don't use that nine million to spin then. Guess what because they can get somebody for that nine million dollars a year a a guy give you minutes and actually you might be able to get serge ibaka for that right. If you want a big man. You might be able to you guy who would help them. Yeah there's no doubt nine million. I know we're the time now when we see your nine millions like flu. What are we getting some steph. Nine million can now with the mid level exception. Get you pretty good player. And when you start to think about teams depth for nothing if you just. We're looking for a guy to provide minutes in depth. That's a pretty good salary for provide minutes in depth in iraq is better than that guys like him. That can actually help team. This is actually. It's almost like getting a fourth round draft pick. Yeah that i'm talking about in the nfl that all of a sudden two years later you see you know what i'm saying these or free agent you say we got him on the cheap but damage overplaying contract right. That he's got that he that he can give you more than this so crazy time. We're saying nine months blah but i million. Nba is law. It is because what's the about five all at least right. Yeah it's gotta be honest sick between five and seven million. Maybe now we're way off at seven points okay. So it's closer. It's to the average salary in the league and that and that is now what brings that up. And what takes it down as a guy who sits at the end of the bench. Play much but think about that job. You don't see minutes and you're making seven million dollars a year. You don't take your swear that a lot of them a lot of give you some minutes at the end but that that nine million bucks can get you. We're about to find out quickly if you want to get a decent one you'd better get on a quick when it kicks because they're going to be teams to do jump on that those that are that have the ability to use mid exception gopher right so what is nine point two. You said i ain't seven point. Nine hundred ten million bucks. It's under ten nine point seven as well so it will but the draft goes to see. I'm not gonna get into the names. You don't i mean from your guy. Precious is in miami but all the way down to jade mcdaniels went to minnesota had pretty good draft now. Yeah nato completely flipped that officer. Sure did i mean what three first rounders in this one i think through nine point seven billion. Okay so you know the twenty third pick. They had believe the twenty eighth pick and then obviously the first pick so they've added some youth and taking care of that but edwards about a six foot four six five swing man who can do a little bit of everything you've got weisman who's a seven foot one stud who can run the floor and do it all and you got lamelo ball. Who's the most polished and probably won't play lick defense now but on the offensive end explosive score and you know and better shooter than his brother but just a he is the best. Maybe the most talented dude in the draft. But the question is you know. How are we going to judge them. Or we're going to judge him with the fact that he's just a great offensive player but he's going to have to ramp because he's fairly nonexistent on the defensive end. But we knew that going in melodic guys are especially at this age. The commitment to it's not there but We'll see how it turns out didn't look like his pops was pumped up. So so the lavar ball and michael jordan. Yeah yeah that's well. I i honestly think jordan's gonna say look we'll let you somewhat more around the team not actually involved as lavar probably wants to be but you want if not yet to sit down shut up and not causing issues jordan to lavar ball until he sees arena. I'll betcha. hey how you doin'. If jordan lavar ball played one on one right too busy playing golfer. Discourse data florida jordan could play in those suits that he wears with a cigar mouth and beat lavelle bad. Big big oversized. That's one thing he's not he's never been. He started wearing them. That was the look. Guys were wearing their suit coat down to this. He's committed low hamstring. It was the over sized like it was like a call a sack suit. It kind of looked like right. I mean over now you know well. I don't know how much he paid for him. Because i'm sure everybody was doing everything they could to give. Michael the suits for free. Because well you want so but oversize was the look and now i have yet to see jordan. Honestly you know used to wear the pleated pants the whole thing. I haven't seen jordan in a suit flat front. The you know the the new tie right fit right. I have not seen him in one. You know he and he likes you even see mitsuko golf pants in golf shirts. I've never seen him well. Michael extra pull the suit pants up high to. If you've noticed the highway just under is is he wears everything. That's that's his. That's his old dad coming out right. Oh yeah if you had jeans on. I can imagine my pants sound. Yeah exactly so but michaels. I've never seen him in the in the fitted tight tight fitting suit. I think michael probably still goes with the all the big baggy suit. I would think i mean so. But he could take. I don't care. If he'd michaels made the transition to the to the tight fitting flat front suit he still beat. Lavar ball. One on one with that odd. Yeah with that. we'll see. This is lavar ball. Is i mean lamelo ball is supposed to be what you've seen of him obviously extremely gifted player but to me it comes down now is what's gonna do what's west or the rockets going to do house klay thompson injury and you know the trade stuff's not done yet. En- daryl morey got to work is trade now horford. Yeah he did went. Got to work getting gas Al horford away the exactly right so starting worked out. What do you get. Look seed for danny green right green danny green netting first round. Pick to great shooters last night. And it's hate dare. Why didn't you get guys like that air. But who's the other ferguson right. Didn't get terrance and two and in the drafting maxi who is a great defender in. Apparently the big thing on. He's not a great shooter in general from three but against the top. Twenty five teams. He shot like forty to forty five percent and they believe that he's going to be could be a steel and i do believe maxi's a sophomore you normally for kentucky sophomore. Finding it didn't go to. Kentucky is a maxi maxine kentucky guy. Yeah yeah and but as a defender in cal- teach defense pretty good. I know most people don't really recognize that calbury good defensive teacher and that'll that'll bode well for them. They they actually did a good job in deir more working some magic right off the bat and oklahoma city thunder while they have four thousand per first round picks between now. And when i'm telling you they have all they do is want first round picks constant. It's unbelievable sportstalk. seven ninety going non with former. Qb sean salisbury. If in fact. Jim harden and rusty westbrook get moved. What honestly do we have to look forward to with the rockets this year as far as threat. You'd hope the young guy that goes back for them like it's not on this roster. Think yeah i mean talent and you're looking forward to is the fact that some different than at your new coach to see what he's going to and i guess depending on what you get The the the what the halls going to be in return right what the hall will be is. What are we looking for in the future with number ones. And what kind of players are you going to get to make this. Roster look presentable if either one of those guys or both are gone right. Yeah look more. Presentable of james is still here. I'll look less presentable if those two are gone but it look. I got news for you a lot. Different if they're both gone but at least something to look forward to if you're accumulate picks And get in and get a hall in return just curious of what hall they're going to get men for hard is still trying to figure out. I talked to two guys in the nba last night guys. That are familiar with it. One thinks oklahoma one thinks the philly one thinks brooklyn brooklyn and watch. It'll be neither of those right. You're probably right. it'd be funny. They're gonna completely said on. They're getting more than the the pelicans guy for jrue holiday. They're getting a player for at least one player. I think they're going to do willing to a half to. But i. I don't think there's any chance they won't or it stays pat pat. Yeah i would agree with that. Eight hundred no. It isn't eight hundred. it's well it's it's somewhere it's eight hundred eight hundred you know the when you say it's eight hundred hours eight hundred dollars it is. I'm not gonna go military talk time on your this morning. It is six our number one seven one three two two five seven ninety mark conroe. What's up buddy. How you doing good morning. Hey fellas hardening westbrook. They're playing hardball with a guy who invented are bought. Tillman for tita. My question is i thought we got a reza and a pick first round pick and they're not heard. They traded him to detroit. What about us. That i hang up and listen. That was a salary dome. They didn't wanna pay a covington's money. They didn't wanna pay a reasons money. They wanted to get back under the luxury tax well into luxury tax. And that's what they accomplished. They look we can be honest about it. They're in the business of not spending money right now. That is their goal. They're spending as little money as they can. Unfortunately on everything they want to not pay luxury tax and that included last night dumping off four point six million dollars to get rid of a reason that it's pretty obvious dump that pick back for detroit to get back an extra million bucks. The only the only spent three point six million dollars to get rid of coming. And i can tell you this too salary. Don't win they got areza. It was never gonna not renting an apartment or buying a home here. This was also was dealing with stopping in the airport for a minute. Even if he did what she probably did obviously he knew wherever he knew that there was going to be a second destination for him so whenever he goes there. That's it reza was do. This was just a says. Like danny green danny green matter of fact you look at danny. Green's flight plan is a real estate plan last. Four years that dude's that dude's he he should be renting out of the country last frigging everywhere so there you have it. Yeah and mark. Thanks for the call. But i don't think any of us thought a reason was getting when people start talk well perimeter defender and can three. He wasn't stay. He's not as good as he once was and we saw how how he was towards the end of his tenure here but i it definitely was a. Hey let's create this mid level exception. Let's not have to pay these guys. We don't really want to pay but it also does give them more assets that they haven't used like they drafted another guy with one of those picks yesterday that kind of just the value stays the same and it's different for every team while this future pick from detroit isn't the best because it's protected. Not have they basically have the the playoffs for the rockets to get this pig. But it's still an asset and it should convert at least in a few years in that could in a trade there's more value in trade for not having a player attached to it to having them but this was this was the motivation for this dumping money. You know it's just was you know what's interesting too is if you're just a person that watches basketball but you're not you don't pay you you just kinda. Don't pay attention to how these trades or when they say dumping salary or you get they attach player because it is for the people that are like calling and say lot reason you try to go through. The explanation tried to do that a couple of times. They don't mean and i get it the nba. It is free agency and attaching this sack. And then there's the hard cap you know what peop- the certain teams that hit that hard cap. The you have to have everybody on your roster underneath it or you can't go get players. Have you had seven players on your roster and there was a hard the hard capita whatever it is right set this year and you can't bust and you got five other roster spots. You've gotta fill. You can't do it unless you are under the hard cap your stomach. Yeah you're done. So there's there's it's just mid level exception and supermax. I feel bad for people that just used to watch the nba. He's under contract. he's not under contract. He's here he's not here and it's like they got trying to follow. Why did they do this. Why move this guy. And why did they go there. It's like you got an. It's ever changing as crazy as does the your cap and and the the price value put on a player. It's crazy for for the average fan at just trying to enjoy. We're sitting here walking through it like it is for some it's a it's a trigonometry class and it's not like the nba that you just watch twenty years ago. Even i mean you're likable supermax. Can't i pay guy whatever. I wanna pay him. Yeah no there's there's a certain way we certain guys and then there's a ceiling. There's a floor. I mean it's crazy so down there sign insurance that also allow you to go over the salary cap. That's what i'm saying. There's hard cabinets our cat. We told you but the whole thing is unbelievable. It's crazy confusing. Trying to figure in this confusing for some is when you and i used to go to plus now to get the two plus two. There's like eighty seven steps for these kids have got to bring this to this. It's like two plus two swore. Got their fat. How many one's going awol. Yeah we multiply first and then we add second and we subtract third and it's crazy so and it's the same thing here you're like the days of. Hey by the way. Did you know they just traded. Trevor rees it back to the rockets goodwill so he's gonna play. Don't not actually new. My brothers my brother called me all. You got a reasonable. Because my brother for some reasoning. I was like yeah. He's not gonna play here. What like he's not playing here. You somebody that what loved basketball or in the nineties or eighty percent. I don't understand why you trade for a guy if you're not gonna keep him and he doesn't even stop over and have a cup of coffee. It's crazy. I was just thinking how we go and i was talking last night. And i'm thinking we spent so much time talking about the money and the hard cap and the salary cap in the mid level exception and the supermax if this guy can go into the three they're sending bodies with them so you take on their contract take on their money but they're not staying here and it's like oh by the way this guy can put the ball on the floor and shoot and he can he you know he's really good down on the low post and he can defend all those things they become secondary because you just trying to mix and match these. Are the reasons why you have that. Math kampala gist in sports. Now because you can't be five dollars over in certain situations or you're in trouble. I mean they break down to the little the little mickle make sure it's and know how to do it. Like a daryl. Morey will know how to mess with the numbers and make stuff work that makes them such valuable assets. And then you see other teams. Do look like they don't know what they're doing. Think about it now. You know how we always go. Upper class middle class lower class ones in sports. We say well. This guy's of special teams player. This guy's a backup this guy's starter right. He used i mean a superstar. We're paying this guy repaint. Now it's to the point. You're like well. You got the mid level exception this not quite as good but we can save a little bit of money. Here maybe and find ourselves under the mid level exception. You could actually go to guys to woody right down to four point two million dollars players better than for the depth of our roster better than one nine million nine million dollar guy at been in one they do and and a guy who if they are intent on going forward with heart and westbrook right and playing this thing out right you have to go get an impact player and one of them not a guy who's just a guy just a warm body my point so it just. It's it's crazy how you're sitting there and you're watching it and try to break down. It's no longer for the most part about a lot of times who the best player is the second. It's actually who's the best player. I'm not talking about when it comes to the superstar and gives us more value overall for a couple of extra bucks. Yeah that's exactly right and they did that in the nfl. They've done that. They got rid of that backup linebacker. Who is their best special teams player. Because he didn't wanna pay him back in nine hundred thousand eight fifty because he'd been the league draft the guy in the fourth round. You make him go do it. You're really not sure if he can play linebacker but he's gotta come in certain situations and you're like well he's not ready for this but we couldn't keep the guy that cost a half a million dollars more that made roster better. It's the way it is an all sports. Now it's crazy money rules supreme sports talk seven hundred our number one. We'll come back with the big one. Seven thirty guy. Steve zola right so we got him talking. Nfl and the groundhog day that has been the taxes and romeo cornell. Well if your defense in your run game aren't working you know who to blame it on. We'll discuss sportstalk seventy up at the crack of dawn at the crack of stacey jennifer caron. At least he was back in vermont. Glory days nowadays. It's up at dawn. Which sean sean salisbury show. Quick question increased ten one question. This is the big one a the big question of the day. On the sean salisbury. Show think before we got the big question of the day which one of these guys that left the first two. Who's going to have a better year. This year in basketball daryl morey or mike d'antoni and tough primate dantonio. Yeah might setup for winning right. Now the seventy sixers look to be that but also could be tweaking some things you know yeah I don't know. I don't know that it would seem easy difference. Yeah and they both should be in the playoffs. Yeah at w. tie. Those are both top four eastern conference teams know if the rockets or playoff team depending on what happens with these two stars right with them and with with the stars and with the news of klay thompson being done that. The rockets path being just a playoff teams a lot. Easier if they have both guys and both guys play like they typically would they they should be a top five in west Yeah if they're both here if they're not then that in for the eighth playoff spot via real struggle with both those guys are gone. yeah Yeah i i would imagine. And i wonder what steve. Nash is if he if he's going to turn to mike d'antoni and say run the offense little. Let's do it your way which you've been used to over. Imagine that they're running. The same all is. That was part of that when mike was coaching it right. Yeah they they got after it will push the ball. Nash played that way and like to play which What two time. mvp so. I don't think he's gonna wanna play a whole lot of slow basketball right and then the question is if they did get james harden how would they approach i still. I still wonder that honest. I still wonder. How are they gonna approach how they teach and coach. Their offense has their role in Along all right it's sports. Talk seven hundred against zola will join us at seven thirty How about the big one for today. How about the biggest route move. The rockets should make between now and december. Twenty second came down to start a season. The biggest move they should make will make. Which one do you guys prefer. Biggest movie should should make a grade so man get get chime. And so what's the biggest move the rockets and we'll just leave it Open and yeah. Just leave it open. See get the responses because a lot of people have a lot of people that death didn't want james out and rusk on you get some the wanna both the actually get some. That would rather have russ here than james here. Then you get some say gimme james and don't care what happens to russ meaning worry. Yeah so. I think there's a lot of. I wonder what the next year's going to look like for sports in houston. That's i think the astros will be good again. They'll probably win the al west depending a lot depends on what other teams doing the division in the off season. But i don't think teams are going to do much. I think a division look the same texans. Don't we think of texts pregnant. Look the same again next year. How can they not. Oh yeah. I don't know well maybe not as bad as homeless name name plaque can't imagine every receiver that's on this roster is going to be gone. Yeah but the result no better than five hundred. Probably as as as we look at the way. They're playing today. I can't imagine that. I can't imagine that there are three win team next year. But i also don't see them as a team just looking at the roster and how many without a pick in the first round what adjustments are going to be able to make. It's hard for me to even visualize quarterback in a couple of good players. But we don't know what they're gonna do fuller. We don't know what they're gonna do. A lot of it's going to determine and supposedly now jackie's to be. I heard yesterday afternoon and i'm sure people in town heard that jack easter be is not going to be the gentleman or considered for the position. I don't know if i trust that yet. Yeah that's almost like they listened to all the fans right ditch and moaning and turn and made one hundred and eighty degree turn. There's no question so That doesn't look like they're going to do the right thing. Go find themselves a general manager but the general manager and coach will have a lot to do with what this roster looked like. It looks like obviously and how they teach and then an approach and speaking of which i tease last time and the poll question will be up on sports. Seven ninety on our Twitter page and you go there and vote and or at least give your opinion on the rockets and what move would you like them to make between biggest move between now and the start of the season romeo cornell Was talking about you know the football team and was asked. Why hasn't is that the one about. Why hasn't the run game improved the one that the main one about talking about training camp. That's what i thought so. Let's hit that. Here's what romeo cornell said and there's a part of it. That's true but i don't like this kind of stuff creeping. Here's romeo cornell on why the run game hasn't approved well. Every every plane is different game plan and so Sometimes you're blocking gaps game. Sometimes you're blocking zones gained and so it's the different technique involved in an all of those. I think the guys are a unified group. They feel good about each other. They try to get it done But sometimes those guys who across from you they make a difference about how well you can do your job And and so we've played against some pretty good guys across from this season you know and and so that has impacted in. Oh they play hard and like we go to tennessee our chance to win a chance to win last week. You know and and so. I don't say that they're dirt on anything like that. These guys are football players and they can play the game with just hasn't worked out forces year. He had also sad. I thought maybe that cut wasn't the about about training camp. No training camp earned right hurting their football team and earning their offense. Yeah there's part of that that's true but thirty two other teams face that as well and a lot of teams are playing pretty well now and this is a team that had been together. Didn't look to me like the cleveland browns running game last week. Ms training camp. Now now i get saying. He wants to be upbeat about his team. I get it but and the other guys are getting paid. I've said that. But here's one thing i well. He's the coach. But i know that quite frankly isn't really the case you don't change your full run game and how you block it. I mean as far as scheme goes every week. You sorry you don't do that. Yeah you right now if you're an outside zone inside zone t that that's what you run. That's the bay. Run your base stuff every week. Now you may say okay against this front will go to do this. A little different. Or we're going to add a wrinkle to it with the jet sweep but i've never been on a team that completely changed our scheme. Week-to-week you just don't do it. that'd be like saying we're gonna change our verbiage and call our. We're going to go from a three digit system to a just name and wristband system in a week. That's not that that that does not happen. Don't work at the base of their running. Game is the same verbiage the same blocking scheme every week. How you chained up you know you may have a guy say okay. You know we're gonna pull the guard to get on the edge this week. Some teams pull a center. I mean how we trap or how. We are inside outside zone scheme. What we're going to do. Are we going to double it and then get up to the second level those things. Yes but the premise of your offense. The forty niners tennessee. Titans pittsburgh steelers the premise. You're out there. They don't change their you add things and subtract small things little details the basis of your run game. They've been here long enough that it it. It's not like this week against the new england. They're going to completely change their scheme. They may change gets up to the second level. They're going to come own right weekend. Right now i'll tell you this if it is the case that they change every week. There's a reason why they're not good. Not good yeah right so if you're gonna tell me your missed training camp or didn't get enough training camp and so the continuity is there you can't turn around you change your scheme every week because that would defeat the purpose you'd say well we wanna get into. I know the best run teams in the world. I've ever been on her watched and talked to don't do a lot. They do a little and executed to make it look like a lot and they dress it up but they block what they know how to block and get done. Maybe if you're having trouble you dress it up with motion and all that and formations but you stick to what you do. That's out kyle. Shanahan does it. That's how good running coaches do it. So if you're changing your offensive scheme every week there's a reason why you're not good at it so going out practicing passing offense that you haven't worked on in practice can't do it so they've got to get better. But you do not change your scheme. Week-to-week the basis of your offense stays the same sports. Talk seven ninety. The only sports mathis the houston sports bubble for the city of houston. Because i love this. City sean salisbury. Get in the bubble on ninety. All right let's hit that a rub l. also was talking about. Listen i i love. I do but they are going to move in a different direction. Yeah he's not going to be the head coach. I wouldn't imagine i'm just i don't have any insight but i just can't fathom they're gonna really let the excuse of oh it's a covid year prevent them from being the head. Coach doesn't seem feasible to me. What's feasible is what's what what seems less feasible is the you would sit back and let covert effect who you're going to get just to me. It's stupid but romeo cornell was talking about the time of the season there should be enough time. Everybody had the same amount of time at training camp and how you approached. It was taught properly. Did you do it right. But romeo cornell talking about his team are attributed to this that we did not have the all season and then we did not have the the preseason you know in those are games where guys get an opportunity to work together and get a feel for each other And i think missing those helped the development of unit and so we're still trying to to develop to a degree and so That's what i attributed to fair enough. You protect your team. He's not wrong. He's not wrong that you would have liked to have an off season and not not a virtual zoom meetings. What would that have been like for you as a player. Not having all the normal offseason stuff like d really. Do you think it would hurt. You hurt your growth in certain as a rookie or a guy who wouldn't have known the verbiage. I mean trying to learn the verge being face to face with somebody talking but it's pretty much a self starter. As a veteran. It wouldn't have mattered at all from. I mean when i say not at all. Listen here's what people for instance quarterback to receiver. Yeah now i. I've always said you can't simulate no matter. How many sprints you run day. Three you're going to be sore and tired with gear on and playing football but is when they say timing. Listen throwing a curl route to chris. Carter thought occur. Anthony carter throwing a curl route to joe six pack in the off season a curl so when they tell. We gotta get your timing. I understand your rookie. You're scared to death about the verb. Don't to okay herbert. the yeah. It affects those guys seem to be doing. Okay that and that was going to be my point to a romeo nelson. Answer your question for me. I listen off season and training camp where to get to be around the fellas get some rhythm going and get yourself ready training camera again. That's exactly so the off season of if you're a veteran. Please don't give me the excuse especially on the mental. Well you don't need a whole a whole lot if you've been working and doing you're supposed to do running a flat. Router a slant route you should be able to do with your eyes closed against air. So that's from one so that wouldn't have affected. The people i was around i don. Warren moon wasn't going to be affected by the fact that we didn't have an off season so make sense. He's pretty good he was going to do is come out and still throw pretty ball every day. Okay the texts. If they didn't play their first four games appreciate still be two and three. They still wouldn't be doing great right but my thing is with all these. The cleveland browns went through it. Forty niners pittsburgh steelers. Miami dolphins justin. Herbert show berle. They didn't have that offseason and then rookies trying to learn so. Listen sometimes you just gotta admit that. Maybe you don't have good players in certain situated not not all of overall but in certain positions. 'cause we've tried every excuse and certain positions aren't getting better so romeo's one hundred percent correct. You can attribute part of it that you didn't have your off season. See you could have them in the meeting room together but in truth you also gotta attributed to the fact that either. It's not being taught properly. It's not being received properly. It's not being processed properly and it's not being executed properly. I attributed more to those because what about a team has to starting new offensive linemen. The colts went through with a new quarterback veteran. Lost running back their first place. I i am sorry. While i'd like i said i'm a huge romeo cornell fan but i think excuses are like button holes. Everybody's got one and that's an excuse. That's a major excuse. But i do get him covering his team. Romeo is a very well not like bill. That's going to go exactly jerk about one. Hundred and eighty degrees fail now. He listen romeo. Cornell's been in this leaks long enough and been successful enough to know that he can watch the tape of the run offense and the run defense and no. There's a reason why we're not very good. Yeah and he knows probably that it needs to be better with his staff. He also nanny knows there's nothing you can do. He knows that needs to be executed. Better what do you have liked to have at the truth is and when you think about guys. You don't spend a lot of time in the off season with coaches. You have your ota's and minicamp that you're really not allowed to be the right. You're you're on your own okay. If you live there and can go into the gym into the facility and left can't sit in truth is it. Ain't like you get sixty workouts with the coaching staff on the field doing it. So okay so you missed a handful. Okay so we got two weeks to make up for when you say. Ota's or three weeks as training camp that we didn't get okay. Wh- are we were pushing. December did yeah. So i get why romeo's sanit any is right but the truth that this part of the season the off season nothing to do with it because i can switch that right now. Edwards helaire is playing pretty well. There's a rookie. We mentioned those three quarterbacks their off-season the exact thing and a lot worse because why because they they've never done this before kind of takes a little accountability to each player to get it done and then when you get there you better ramp up the teaching. So there's a lot of things romeo's not wrong but he's not right to say he attributes the you can attribute the entire thing that guys you look at it. if out of position or can't make tackles that have anything to do with four months ago now has nothing to do with other than you. Just not doing her job right and if you do your job you ain't doing it very well. Yeah okay give up. One hundred and eighty yards rushing game. That ain't had have nothing to do with march a okay. Sorry to talk lack talent and effort and beat in the right place right. Now you're two yards out of line. What nick chubb did last week got to the edge and took it down to one to clinch the game. So i get what he's saying. And i have all the respect in the world but let's face facts sometimes. There's a cross between being abrasive and being delusional there somewhere in the middle to say that this team's only reason why they're struggling and that is because of that is one hundred percent on sports. Talk seven ninety hour number two next sean partial former. Nfl quarterback longtime friend. Sean salisbury. this is the sean salisbury. Show keeping sportstalk seven ninety. I always like little funny mean to me or some dad. A little her quotes some of we get passionate stuff at some of. It's pretty funny. I i saw this on social media yesterday. About i know all the time changes with curfews and lock stuff down in different cities. I listen and some places. They're trying to get you to wear a mask when you're alone in your own home okay. Even be real. Well i have you. Have you seen some of the governors in this country. Dude not ours. But i'm talking about across the country. I i i assure you. Oh yes there is i. By the way you mentioned the time change you can go to hell. Yes just the worst speaking of that. It says remember. This is funny. You get bad if you want. I just think it's funny. Remember that time when you almost caught the rona but you made it in your house by nine fifty nine pm. I just think it's funny. Because i know i'm not sure what a ten o'clock curfew does roanoke time change on. Oh i've got my own self curfew about eight thirty. Last time i take the dogs out. And then i'm in bed by nine. Worry about ten o'clock curfew. Because i'm not i got no problem with it but i've just said yeah. I decided that you actually have to make a. If you're seeing on the streets or arrest you can't be restaurants gotta close. I mean so. What have you read ten. Thirty is the ronan more relevant I guess so. I just i i i get the idea of well. We don't want large gatherings later. At night i get it. But i just don't know on a wednesday night. What if somebody wants a late dinner at ten thirty can't right because guess what rona knows. That are much better. learn to cook out. Yeah i'm not. I'm not pressing on a wednesday night anywhere near ten o'clock we early to get up but i just think that thanks funny. That hurried home by nine fifty nine. So the rona then get you. Its like the slipper with you know when you slip treats yeah you gotta get in before the clock strikes midnight but it's ten now. It's ten o'clock yeah. Make sure you get in you. Were you talking. I'm trying to remember what you asked me during the break but bugging me was it about the numb talking about you. I know i'm not thinking now. Now you've got me thinking what is it about. The texans were talking about lavar ball. Oh there you go there. You go about the lavar ball michael jordan situation that you had some fun sound about jordan. George put the video up on the blog. It'll be up there just a minute but obviously the lamelo pick last night third overall right. That takes a team away from the rust. Oh yeah adverse. Soon you'd think But lavar ball was of course he said multiple times. You know i'd be michael jordan one. Yeah he'd be he'd be fraud or something. What else he said and michael was asked about it at a basketball camp and twenty seventeen and he laughed it off. He also said that he was like you know it's he. I think he's going to be really good player. There's nothing wrong with a dad loving kid and urging about kids but he goes now he's crazy one legged and it's fact. Yeah that's fact. Here's the interesting thing but i do give jordan and that ownership credit for not allowing that or whatever to not take ball. Yeah you know georgia and do if lavar was come in and beat allowed and be on the sidelines. Or whatever new jordan. Shut that down. Yeah no question benefactor you may shot it is also going to go into practice and dog lamelo about it right. Oh he's wro. he's ruthless. Yeah when it comes to me he will. You heard him on you know on his done. The documentary where he just his own team. He then i took it personally. Yeah yeah and then. I took it person right there. You go so we'll just think lavar versus. Mj actually happen though. I know everybody in their mother brought it up last night. charity event. Ray you could raise a lot of money for charity. You probably could just just with jordan's just because people want to see an bar clowned right around show of course of what i don't know if lavar wants to be embarrassed bad. He'd played off like he was doing it on purpose. Flooding and let them beat them. I two nba brothers. I believed to be drafted in the first five. Picks lamelo in and lonzo. i don't think we've ever had. And i'm gonna go ahead and call my shot one day. We'll back at it and save. Neither of them was worthy of being a top five. See you think lamelo is going to be a bust completely really why you can't shoot. He is not a great shooter. I'm this is a league that we've seen this movie before talented guy. I mean he could be his brother cool. He'll facilitate a little bit. I understand eleven points per. I mean i could be completely wrong. Annoy we put up one hundred points a game chino hills high school and he also cherry pick the entire time. That's what he did. He played You measure you didn't play defense. He gives no crafts about that. Yeah do you think he's aggressive on defense or really mellow josh. How's your wednesday. You know. I gotta come clean. I just really clever when it comes to more Really up when it comes to my dad. Jokes just asked me. I feel pretty good about it. Actually i mean he keeps me mellow. Yeah so there you go. I listen to concern about the The when we get through the lamelo ball and stuff. And i right. I'm gonna give them a little more credit. Say he's going to be better nba. I haven't seen enough to completely house this. I've seen him shoot. And i look at the mechanics of and i go. How's it going to work. He's been at journeyman. Hey think about it. He's journeyman from high school to quit high school to play in sad. I mean he's been in a couple of different countries playing basketball. He was in high school and went to the left that to go play ball and no pun intended. If you see what. I did there to go play ball and the truth is you haven't seen much of him unless you saw as a youtube. Ram highlight videos of him in the australian. He's got game going to the rim. There's no doubt about it. No question and he can get his shot. I mean he's really good attack the rim. But i it's weird normally when you're the third pick of the draft or a top five. We've we've actually seen you at least for a year. The truth is if you don't know all's you his last name you know more about his last name and his dad than you do about him and he's third pick of the draft. Yeah because i mean you can read scouting reports on them or listen to people talk about him. But here's a guy who's been a journeyman before he was drafted normal your journeyman after you get drafted literally been around the world doing this. I'm still trying to find one. Hi what's he twenty. One thousand nine hundred a. He plays those shot right now. He's shot is he. Looks like it's chess pass. It's just like brother shutting very don't know how it's gonna man teach them to shoot like the know that's the thing you went your entire life learn how to shoot and this is the result. Is it like shawn marion. shy chesapeake. i don't get it. He turned nineteen in august. so he's also nineteen. I have to see for some reason. I thought he was twenty about to be because he left high school. You know what. That's the thing. So i like finish his full high school he just he just flat out left high school when he graduated from high school or not to be honest but he left playing playing high school ball and he was obviously committed to go play what ucla yep and that went away alford the coach at the time right. That wasn't the case. And then his dad for some reason they had there was a little disagreement or whatever. It wasn't just left went china's stuff and that led to his son not playing as much of being discipline and that was a disagreement and then they all went to lithuania or whatever went played all august thirtieth draft. He skipped his junior year of high school and part of a senior high school to go play professional lithuania and then he came back and he played at a prep academy in ohio and then he went to australia. I don't know how that works. How do you be a pro. Then come back to your eligible to go back to the pro bowl in lithuania. But he's here now to play high school basketball. You think that there was an unfair advantage. Their dominance weiss a little bit. So that's why you said in ohio so it wasn't obviously in virginia. We're okay. I mean he was yeah. He went to deter spire institute academy school in geneva. Ohio so basically a high school extension before college basically is what it is so well. Yeah so like. I said you try to follow his path. You can't pick in the draft and he should be really really good. A bunch of teams canceled their games against them when he went there because they they were unhappy with his professional experience in threatened that his eligibility was not allowed under state federation. I think that's probably a fair assumption by those folks there. Don't yeah it's it's odd but he's got a lot of experience while he was still should have been eaten at burger king with high school students. His team when have it. So he's he's ahead of the curve when it comes to competition when he was at spier. His team was removed from the hoop ball classic tournament. Event because the organizers did not meet the ten thousand dollar request as father for his son to play in the tournament we got to go break. Say that's the parts of thanks. That bothers me. Yes when. I know more about the dad than i do about. The player is data demanding. Rand chris kid to go play a high school game. Yeah yeah great. So we're making appearances as a high school basketball player. Times have changed. Sportstalk seventy stake it out next. This is the sean salisbury. Show sean. Now that sells very stakeout on the sean sounds breach. Show fred sports. Talk seven hundred. Mc let's take this thing out. We had a great thursday night football tonight the seahawks and the cardinals who wins and this one is in seattle. Three point favorite. Are the you want the gambling picker you want me to. I would take the seahawks in both. Here's why back to back. Losses defense is getting scolded team though in recent years. It goes there them. There's no question. Hit beat teams are actually walton in there and beating them more often than normal in the past especially with russ has had a couple ask for him. Average weeks is right. Now is not the leading candidate for the mvp who des i would say. It's either mahomes rogers. Kyla murray's charging to his. His numbers aren't as guardians the others but people looked like his numbers on the tax exemption. A better projector than lamar jackson was last year. He's going to have better number now yet. Look all these twenty six thousand one when it comes to touchdowns and an interception so take seattle. Here's why i actually think arizona right now. Seven interceptions in his last four game. Right i actually think that's seattle right now arizona right now. It's better team. Forget the ram just on that whole raw. There're better team but at some point time. You know how this goes when you just play the law of averages with a great quarterback at some point in time he's gonna up to remember beating the team twice to good teams hard to be placed. Let alone if you put them in the playoffs and you give them a third time writes. This is time to came down to the to the decay. Metcalf chasing the guy down. They had a chance to win. And then they didn't. I'm gonna take put it this way. Devos benton take the over. Let me just put that. I would take the over. But i'm gonna take russ. This is like a this to me. Is like twenty seven twenty three game thirty one twenty seven game. Not because i think seattle is better. I just think there's a part of me that says at some point time russ is going to completely protect it and i know that their defense is getting hammered by across the country. People are just destroying them as they should. There's no question about it. So i'm gonna take arizona's a better team. Seattle gets them this time. Because i think it's coming down to the last week or so. The season to who wins at division and this will tie them up and we may have to have another tiebreaker. I maybe it's just because kind of like the chaos of the division right. Rams are playing pretty good football. Three three six and three seattle in a close one but a high-scoring take the over going arizona. I i know that they're playing it. Seattle to and tonight. This is the first thursday night matchup where you're sitting back saying. Oh my god myself. My way to the tv agreed. So you're taking java zone. I'm gonna take seattle like you. I just think rose has had to back games in a row. He's still a great quarterback. He's going to have a good game. I don't think they're gonna lose twice in the same season arizona. Come see me in the playoffs. If they're both play like this i'll take arizona. They're winning its division unless phone. So i'm gonna tell you right out they win. They're not only winning the division they're going to start chasing down people for home field advantage in c. because green bay while good they're vulnerable. We've seen it tampa bay new orleans or the backup quarterback it's wide open so they went from a hopefully. They'll make the playoffs team to a budding. Mvp and a chance to not only win the visual be playing their acid home in the first round longer crazy. Isn't i'll get to you in a second josh lee. What's on your mind. Here on the stakeout. Well you know iraq. It's really pulled on the main straight yesterday. The world trade. The six people pick for pick year that topics teams protected that most likely convey to a future second round pick would the great idea with the tremendous effort to save money at all costs I know this lock cassation and all that now if you listened to earlier we said that the rockets yesterday made a move to save money. So we're not hiding from that. Didn't even say nothing negative about you guys but you did. My point is this is the all time low his franchise. We've never had owner like this before. I hope that ninety will stop supporting the rockets. Whenever y'all contract because of contracts should be devalued leaving joe lee and lee thank humana. I can tell you one thing. We appreciate the call. And i understand your frustration. One thing we're not gonna do is go away from the rockets. The one thing you can't do during a time when they're struggling all the sudden if everything if every time they went through a little bit of adversity or we didn't approve of a general manager. Not saying the rockets or of positional. Losing a superstar. Well then people would. Quit talking about the texans eric. Supporting the texans or the astros when they want sixty games you just don't you can't turn your back on a franchise happy. I have the same concerns that every every single fan does about the direction and their lack of ability to spend money. And they're cutting right. We're not gonna do is quit supporting the rockets now. You don't have to go to a game if you don't want the i understand but as a seven ninety group we're not just going to say oh. We don't like the rockets because they're struggling because james harden not here says a lifelong fairweather fads. Exactly right we're going to stick through this on our partnership with the rockets is outstanding. And hey we can't find the test character with everybody when you stay with somebody when maybe we disagree with things that are going on with the player trades. Or what have you but guess what. That's why we talk about it. That's our job not personal them. Like it's like i'm a fan. I am concerned with everything else as every other fan right and i understand your frustration with the team but i think that's also a long line the people's frustration. But you know you don't have to like what they're doing. But i'm also a fan. I've listened. I've been a fan of some teams. They've been a long road to get there but so our support will continue frustrations there. They ain't going away anytime soon. I don't think josh what you got for me. Lee thanks for the call now. The nfl there was a report yesterday. From jason mcintyre that was heavily disputed. That joe judge emaar colombo guide to fight colombo got the best of him. Yeah and he also got fired. Oh and has a lot of people know wednesdays in the nfl. Even by week is usually the busy day. That's when you get a lot of stuff done so my question is i know we always hear about players by each other and training camp and things like that. Have you ever seen two coaches physically. Fight each other while you're playing Seen him get close players to come in between five seen on a charter flight. Heading home from game. A coach over seat and getting a fistfight with the player on a plane. That's what you want is a fight on a plane. I've seen i've seen on the field a player go after a coach and have to be restrained. I've a million times. I've seen on the field and i could give you some epic in the locker room fights talking about epic where it was like a lead like like like with people get do. It was epic and the the winter was a surprising. If you've taken the underdog at it you said oh and then after you found out you realize this ain't no underdog he wasn't messed with the rest of the time Seen it yeah. I've seen it. I have never seen a coach. I remember back in the day when a player went punched. A head coach in indianapolis interface. My buddy ray butler who played wide receiver. Desean played the colts. You remember that story when a guy went across getting cut win across there and punch the coach right. I mean we got a fist. Fight with 'em players and coaches get after more than coach now in their own meetings. I'm sure they argued like crazy. It doesn't happen often. They coaches head. Coach and assistant coaches are punching. Each other and faith did happen. We had to hear. What was it. A guilty ryan a going after you see more of those that we're kind of in-between people break it up and they're arguing. Would you see. There's a lot of things that fans and media don't see because you just don't and back in the day you weren't privy to live with social media somebody's you know trying to tell something on everything because info inside information but i can tell you that. Yes those happen often now. It's not often that if this is true that a coach punched a head coach in a face for got the best of him That doesn't bode well. Marc colombo now. I put it. This way is is tough joe. Judge may be. That's the wrong way to tread guy was a player in the league about march gotta to be about six eight about three bills sixty and forty two our probably around the same age. You know that that. That's that's a fight you don't want dirty a and then mark colombo got fired. In a coach that had been with. Joe judge in the past is now the offensive. Line coach. colombo been dallas offensive line teacher for a few years and then jason garrett went with him obviously the endorsement of taking him with him to the giants right as the coordinator marks good coach and a bad man if mark if he did unload on him. Joe judge ain't feeling very well today. I promise you so. I don't know the inside of if if it was a scuffle argument. Because they had a philosophy disagreement he ran him out or if he was going to run him out in the he knew that and then he went after him and then the fight ensued and he said you're fired anyway. Or if it's just hogwash. They screamed and yelled at each other. Which happens all the time looking now. Focus on his music. He's a musician right. So and somebody knows headed music and colombo's a good player. I mean is good. Law offensive line coach More than likely he'll be employed. And i can tell you this. Those offensive line coaches are are feisty and they defend their guys and their position more than any position coach defenses. I promise you it's like if you offend instance. I would imagine. Mike devil is the same way. If you call a guy out there those offensive line guys. They want and talking about from from from mcnally in cincinnati all those days when he coached. Anthony manuals to tom. Cable tom about to the biggest baddest cats on the planet to the. Somebody's not johnny michaels. God rest his soul who our offensive line. Coaching minnesota randall. Mcdaniel gives every one of the best ever pat. Morris who i've been with you can go through a whole group of i'm gonna tell you something now. You start talking poorly on the field about their guys or in a meeting room. They'll take care of their guys. That's the way they feel. This is our fraternity. You wanna fight them. You fight one of those offensive lineman or the coach. Guess what you're doing damn right and we will know really to judge. Does have a black guy because i'm guessing since its biweekly nakata's per week or so and you probably won't even know the whole inside of the whole argument took place right because players probably worn around. Was they say that they were. They were going. They told him that they were hiring. Somebody to work. Don't it's a fistfight. Or he went after him and grabbed him and who knows you know probably we probably go make a bigger deal of it than it is but the bottom line is a guy lost his job. And there's another guy there. But that's why i love these offensive line coaches in their player. I do even though we criticize gonna tell you what the most loyal dudes on the planet to their coach or coach to their players. Is that position. And if you criticize and you wanna fight one you may as well just assume say i better bring army. Because i'm fighting them all. Those guys are brutally and chrissy. I'm talking about loyal as it gets which. I love him for that. I mean you. Like i said you talk about about one. I really bring on their all key. And the coach will defend their honor and he will literally fight. You literally fight you to protect his guys and you know what i frigging love that about offensive linemen and then they get home and by five o'clock they want that meal on the table and a cold beer so loved those dudes been there. The best sports talk seven ninety hour number. Two steve palo pro. Football focus next. Hey this is linebacker. Whitney mercilus listened to real texan salt on your smart speaker. Just ask alexa play. Sportstalk seven ninety on iheartradio. Zhongce ellsbury show continues. We're joined now. We are every week little adjustment this week because of all the nba. Talk and thank you to steve follow our senior analysts and they're senior analysts pro football focus. He joins us for adjusting his schedule. Steve welcome in i listen. I don't even. I know that the raw of the i wanna say rockets astros. But it's the texans. I know they're here and i know it's groundhog day. And i know the same thing happened. Can't defend the run and they rush for two hundred yards. I get it so let me hear romeo cordell at mentioned and i agree with him on a small part. Did he attributes their basically the run situation and run game on the offense and basically they've struggled in certain situations because of the training camp and the lack of an season. We'll in truth. We're not in pads in the off season and during otas and the rest of it and there's only it's not like you're forty seven practices and i know it matters. But other teams adjusted. I think i love romeo. I think it's a bit of an excuse but when you watch this team. How much should we attribute this offseason to their putrid ability. Not only to run the football but to stop the run. Yeah mean i. I think every teams in the same boat really something just say. It was the texan You know i think coming into the season. I ranked all the offensive lines. And i looked at the texans offensive line and said wow look at this. Last couple of seasons even proved in pass protection and adding laremy tunsil has been great and mac sharp been solid as far as just protecting the pastor. Just that part of game mcmartin sackful and titus. How they that's where there strengths ally. Dave built an offensive line just from just from. Pf simple numbers. We have pass blocking grades and we have run blocking grades and last season. This is how the offensive line was constructed. Did a much better job in. Pass pro You know watson was under pressure a lot but we talk on the. That's on him or a lot of that's on him so they've done a better job protecting the quarterback but they were not good in the run game last year or this year training camp. No and it doesn't matter So essentially this season from an evaluation standpoint. It looks a lot like what they were last season. You know it's just the nature of their offense of wine and I don't think it's a terrible thing. I think i'd rather be better in pass protection but yes you have to be able to run the ball effectively when you choose to and that certainly hasn't been there for texas. This is steve. Okay going in. You thought better. Okay we're gimme a were. They were ranked as far as the thirty two teams going just just their ranking overall offensive line. They were right in the middle of the pack. Okay because they were good impasse bro and not good from run blocking standpoint and that was a massive step up from previous years would you now looking at them now. High under overall. I'm not just talking about one. Part of the game. High high underachievers stayed where they are or gotten better. I think they've just about stayed where they are. I can look real quick and see where we have. I mean we still have them ranked as a top ten unit in pass protection and then from a run blocking standpoint. I mean it's what you might think. Twenty seven so you've got seven in pass locking twenty seven run blocking and you know it's not ideal being that far apart but it kind of shakes out to middle tier of line and that's just kind of what they ought. Okay at this stage of the game. I was asked this question yesterday. And so i'm gonna ask you see if if we're on the same page in the answer. Laremy tunsil if you had to do this over again and you were the well. We'll stop the texans. Would you make this move for two. First rounders no absolutely not. I mean there's there's just no it has nothing to do with tunsil as a player. I mean joe. Thomas the best tackle of this generation. If you if. I knew i was getting joe thomas. I wouldn't do it And again i for two first rounders. You're talking about the give up correct. First round the disconnect. I think for people in football versus say basketball and baseball in basketball stars at any position are stars and baseball starts at any position or stars. Whether you've gotta rightfielder third baseman or catcher of star can add value like a star. If you get a star left tackle. He's he not impact your team. The way a star anymore. Believe it or not or more valuable position can do Obviously quarterback receiver. Like if you know if you have a star receiver who's going to touch the ball and draping place. He will have far bigger impact. Or cornerback So i think in the nfl when you get a very good player like laremy tunsil but you give up to first rounders to get him. He has to have value to players to be worth it in a tackle. It's just almost impossible to do so for a team. That's lacking depth. That you know there. There were probably other options. They're all that said when they went from truly in davenport to laremy tunsil. That was huge part of the offensive line going from one of the worst to at least middle of the pack so it certainly helped the team. But i wouldn't make that move again because it's so difficult for one player to achieve value to steve palace. Solo senior analyst pro. Football focus joins us. All right steve. With i remember just well less than a decade ago or or or even less than that. It was quarterback when we when we talked about positions that we were like the had to have quarterback left tackle in some sort of disruptive right well as we go down the charts now and you talk you kind of mentioned it are is a left tackle and really one study offensive linemen. Where where would they fit in now. Where does that fit in. As far as a pecking order quarterback disruptor wide receivers since. We're in a passing. Where would that come in now because it almost feels like what we did to the running back. I'm not saying all the way but we've almost devalued that position because of what you're saying you gotta have the playmaker. You gotta have this. You gotta have that. Where does it sit in now. Yeah i like the look. The offensive line as a unit and texans are perfect example. And i mentioned this on our podcast all the time. If you have a disastrous offensive line you wanna creep back toward average you know if you have a In there as long as you have a middle tier offensive line. You should be able to create offense so that makes it difficult to completely overvalued left tackle talking about the most valuable players right now. Today's nfl quarterback a different stratosphere but receivers in corners. If you know if you're if you know you've got production out of them then. Those are those valuable players and then the left tackle. It's you know it's nice if if the left tackle is replacing a guy that's well below average but you just need middle class type of players which are tough to find in today's eye or valuable in today's nfl. Like an average guard or an average sector. Those guys are valuable as nfl. And you need you need the starting five to be good as a unit not just one and the other part is that the left tackle is not actually more valuable than the right tackle. You know the right tackles gotta you gotta block. Jj watt or has the bloch von miller and khalil mack. And you know you're blind side when you look into the left shawn when you're thrown to the left. What sides wind the one protected by the right tackle. That's not as there. But they moved the best guy away from your best lineman anyway steve. So it's both tackles now. There shouldn't be one more value placed on the other because coordinators are idiots. If you're otherwise week i'm going to move myles garrett to the right side to the defensive right well both tackles are of equal value. The left tackle the themselves. You know i. I don't think it's like the quarterback get the left tackle and then go from there You know get the quarterback yet playmakers get as many claim acres as you possibly can along the way and make sure that your office of line. Just a disaster. That's how i would look at offense of team building. Steve i want you and you always are honest but be as brutally honest as you can because i know how good he is and we've talked about iran's himself in a sacks i want the justices hardcore you're evaluating as if you're gonna draft him forget the statistics just look at everything is to shawn watson better today than he was sixteen games ago so this year is interesting because i think he's i think i do think he's played a little bit better and you know it. It's not that some of those weaknesses have completely disappeared. You know those things are still there. The the Inviting pressure and taking sacks and all that stuff but for for play playing for a team that has been you know behind most of the season and playing games that they have not been. Winning wasn't done an incredible job. And taking care of the ball fried. He is real not just looking at interception. Totals but you know by our numbers. He's it's not like he's firing the ball the linebackers and getting lucky and I i think it's decision making has really taken a step forward so And just from game to game standpoint. We've been on here many times talking about if he can just avoid those disastrous games. He has he hasn't had any of those games like he had in the past the bills. Game in twenty eighteen. I believe it was last year against the ravens and a couple of the games along the way with there's multiple fumbles turnovers. And he hasn't done that. So i do walk and taking a step forward. And it's one of the more underrated stories of the year because nobody knows texans aren't winning games and it's actually really tough to not win games when you have a quarterback played at that level which i think shows just how four everything is around him. It's mostly on the side of the ball so i like walking. I like where he's taken on. I think he's moved further up in the quote unquote. Ub rankings this year. And i think he's special with they're still more spent they're still another level to his game and we know that little presence in the pocket and and make sure understands hot reads in blitzes and that special steve. One more thing about him. Steve pol senior analyst pro football focus. Can you can you put your finger on why he and his team. And when i say never i'm pretty close to right. I rarely say always and never in sports. They never start fast. Why is it so now. They get down two touchdowns i can count on him to throw. He's gonna get you back in the game. Always but why is it that this team looking at tape. Why are they so pissed. Poor the first quarter and a half or two quarters. That's a tough one. Because i don't i don't have a good answer for the i. Don't give a good answer for the y. you know. it's i think. I think play callers just sometimes have a good feel for that stuff. And i think callers treat though i fifteen or so differently. Sometimes it's like let me just throw a lot of stuff out there and see how the defense response. And then. I'll pick and choose which way i want to go for. The next fifty plays right others. You know the college shanahan's always gonna. I've seen him described as a storyteller as a playcaller right. It's not just run run. Pass pass run. it's. I'm going to run this running play and then there's going to be play action off of it and there's gonna be a jet sweep off of that same look at the story and it just all build and you and sometimes you see a kyle. Shanahan i fifteen and it's just spectacular. It's like how did he do that right. You know he just. He made everything. Look exactly the same and had a different answer for it. And it's like and then they moved the ball downfield before you know it. They've got seven points. So i think there's some rhythm to the play calling in that first fifteen that's probably lacking in houston Right now but it's really talked to say why don't they actually do well. Why don't they call better plays. It's really tough to pinpoint other than i think. I think the play calling in a game planning standpoint. Just some coordinators is better than others at that you know started the game all right. Let's go on this. Got about thirty seconds. Who's the mvp in the league would just past the midway point. Oh man. I think right now. Body of work. it's it's probably aaron rodgers. he's our highest rated quarterback. Pf s and you know most valuable player Patrick mahomes we'll probably get there. I think mahomes so many people are looking at homes and say well. He's got twenty five touchdowns and one interception therefore he's the guy He's not the guy because of those twenty six plays. He's interception lock. You've got six touchdowns on screen. So holmes isn't there yet but probably will be there because he's awesome and he's going to you know play played. Great turned the second half of the year. But i like. I look at rogers and mahomes right now. Murray starting to play his way at least into some chatter. That's for sure. So it's fun to watch we get. We're lucky with some coppin. Quarterbacks and rogers is just stupid. Good steve great stuff man. We will talk to you. Next tuesday before available before thanksgiving. Are we still good for next. Tuesday yeah yeah we could do that. We'll get out next tuesday before the holiday. I appreciate your brother. Thank you thank you. That's great steve pal. Zola will come back.

Show sportstalk seven ninety taking your calls. While we're at st palo say about not only this team. The future and the quarterbacks plan the needs of an offensive line. Would you do the laremy. Tunsil deal again. Not the tunnel is not a good player. He doesn't think any lineman for two first rounders. He's right and right maybe very correct. We are actually devaluing. The left tackle position not us. But it is. Because i keep trying keep were gotta get a left tackle. Go and watch football on sunday. Every good defensive team with one good player moves the guy. Yeah the right tackle is even. If you're not a left handed quarterback that it used to be that all your left hand got to protect your backside. If you're a full field quarterback the frontside at times can be your backside. Okay so the truth. Is you better have a right tackle and left tackle. And they built better. Be damned good and you'd better have some interior guys too because if not the rivers and the breezes of the world and the brady's they'd prefer you to be able to defend interior wise pass rush than ex year because they north and south climbers of the pocket. So you go watch the good defensive teams if there's no longer all he's the left defensive end or the right defensive and if he's a edge rusher he plays everywhere and if you if there's a weakness they're going to line that dude up there and attacked the weakness so would you do the deal again for two first. Rounder steve palo zola says. No one has anything to do. With how good laremy tunsil is. It's the simple fact it. There's that are more needed in two first. Rounders are more important than one offensive lineman according to a guy who watches every single team every single player. Great tape every single week. Let's get the mardi mardi welcome in man how you doing. Hey i'm all right side. Hey man Hello the bumps. un and your whole team up there listening. I think steve has some great points. But i'm gonna tell you something. I think it's a little deeper than that. I think it's a little bit more accessible. First of all i believe that and i listen. My friends are probably put my football car for this. But let me tell you. I don't believe that the texans offensive line is as bad as it looks. Here's what i believe that. This same offensive line. Gary kubiak on different offensive coordinator coach would perform differently. They would they would have more rollouts. More strikes plays which when a which would which would complement the rpo that we do. And i don't think we use running backs properly. You know running up a good and all but come on man that we don't have those type of running backs. I believe that the reason that we also get off to these slow start is because we're not We're we're planning to counter attack instead of plantar strength you know. And and if we get the shawn watson a good coach that will allow him to. I mean the quarterback quotes specifically for him allowing him to audible some of these obvious glitches and pressured. I promise it it's gonna take this guy to another level. Hey marty let me ask you. And i we got about a minute and ryan will get to you after the break. So stay there and the rest of the callers. But i do want to address this part of it. I mean. so you're taking every every ounce of this is on. The coach is not one of its on the players. I love your take. But i disagree with you. I think it's both. And i understand. And i think he does have some flexibility to to get out of bad plays. I'm a huge. Listen i watch is one of the five best players at his position. A league and i think there's another level to his game but many of those sacks that come on there those are those those are cited just blitzes. He misses and so he's got he's easy. We're to the point his career he can't miss cited just blitzes because he wants to step out of it. Sometimes you've got to catch the ball. Put his foot in the ground and throw a hot read which he misses because he trusts his ability to run out of it so much any any runs into sacks that is on him and as far as the president and let me finish as far as the offensive line. I know you said we don't have like a derrick henry or a guy running inside you can't just live by getting the edge. You've got a pound the ball inside. So yes the back. Scott open there is the offensive line has gotta move it and steve photos old say they weren't good. They're not very good in the run game and they don't come out of the locker room with an attitude you're right. They play passive as opposed to aggressive but they are very good at pass protection they just run block and they're not very good at it and it's a trend so something's wrong here. I agree with you that there's definitely something wrong and we'll both agree. That and let me tell you this before i leave. Is i believe that james aren't gonna rule today. He turned down that fifty million dollars. He's the game is changing. The whole atmosphere is changing. He's got rule the day that he turned down at fifty million dollars mark. I'm gonna let you get mardi gras great insight brother thank you. I appreciate disagree on that. He's now. I appreciate the call my man thanks for the end. I love the passion. I don't think he's going to rue the day. Because i think james he's contaminate regardless. He may rue the day that he turned it down here. Because he's he. This is houston and they love him and he his carte blanche hair inside the organization. You may be right about that. But fifty million here forty five million somewhere. He's going to get paid. Mardi out. But i i understand. I think people are bothered if he does leave because well. He's leaving the city that we'd like to have really good player like that so you make good points on it. But there's a lot of things teaching and player so the responsibility falls on coaches and players when it comes to football it's not just one or the other and you get an aggressive playcaller in here but you know. Bill has had some times of it when he does here tim. Kelly said it's the consistency that bothers me and the slow starts. Make me my head. One exploded drives me frigging nuts. We'll come back and discuss sports. Talk seven ninety hour number three next bill longtime friend. Sean salisbury this. Is the sean salisbury. Show albury our number three taking your calls on. would you have done the laremy. Tunsil deal for two first rounders knowing what you know about this team. Listen everybody talks about a bell cow. Tackle in one guy you got to have more than one. And they're good. Pass protecting not very good and this is not his laremy tunsil any good great feat. Good punch good athleticism. He's really good player. It's not is he. Good it's was two first rounders for him too much for that position. Forget who's fulfiling it. I mean there's very few guys in the league at that position i think quin nelson's dominant as areas and. I don't think anybody give two first rounders forum today president and he's a great player. I go back. I definitely wouldn't do the deal. And i'm just trying to think of other houston trades that you'd go back and not do got to tough five. Yeah and going to be a roller every year right. The deals are going to go back. I wouldn't do would be deals. That sucked right. This guy can play. Yeah so you still. It's not well you guys don't like larry. i think. Laremy tunsil fabulous. It was too much but we knew it was too much right. And looking at the franchise now Do you still feel that way. So it's like receiver. Do i want one great one. Now if i had hopkins in this group it'd be great to have one great one or do i want four really good ones. I know what. I'd rather have a great one. We talked about that before i see. I'd rather have four really good ones. We thought that going to have four right not not here now but if those four really good ones were really good all the time. I'd rather have that now if you had one great one in three hours. Now you give me hopkins with two okay once in another really good one. I'll take that you get my point. I can't just have one dude and the rest are trash. I'm not talking about here. He's like years for head. Andre johnson forever and their next best receiver was kevin. Walter good player but you get my point. Yeah right and it's the same offensive line. If i got one good offensive. I'm not saying that these guys can't be good. There's still some growth. They gotta get better here. But if i have one dominant player at that position ought to stay away from him as a defense. I can handle him right. It's like anything else. I can handle him. This ain't like basketball or one dominant player. Beat you one dominant. Tackle doesn't prevent you from losing a lot of games as a lot of other things that are important so Just curious if he's worth in what you think overall moving forward what we're gonna do here with texans although it's not a big topic because well when two and seven not a lot of people wanna talk about you or maybe they do even more. So than when you're seven and two knows ryan in abilene. What's up john. And my question has had nothing to do with the texans. But have you seen a year where. There's so many quarterbacks auditioning veterans for next year year with cam. Dolphin jameis winston. Maybe even alex smith trying to get the job for next year and asked the first part of that question. I yeah i. I know the names. What was your question. Have you ever seen a tom. Were backup quarterback for veteran. Quarterbacks are trying to audition like james hopes to be the guy next year right new orleans right. Andy dalton wants another shot kamlesh to stay put and maybe even alex smith. I don't know if cam wants to stay put. But i i'm with you ryan. Thank you all answer. That question great gets a great question. I appreciate it for me. I can think all backup quarterbacks kind of i could tell you this all of them. If you've got one year left on your contract feel like back in my day back or all auditioning because you either want to get a long term deal with your get a chance or if the starter liking jameis winston situation that there's a good chance or at least a would seem let's save fifty fifty that drew brees and come back that he's going to go to nbc and broadcast that. He's auditioning for his own team. And you did mention ryan and you may be right. I mean. I don't know how i don't know what the market is for cam away from new england. It's tough enough to get him because he's so one week it's like disguise really good still like this week. He's probably gonna look off right and then the two week three weeks ago for four straight weeks he was asked. Yes so it just depends on what cam but he's auditioning for the patriots. Asu right and other teams janus. Is alex smith coming back from injuries. Putting up numbers eight. It's don't win much there. And what a great comeback store that dalton's hurt and banged up. So yes you know with his situation so yeah no ryan great question the auditioning as far as guys wanna be starters and i can tell you this right now that group you just named. It'll be lucky if two of them are starting off football teams next year. Lucky if to hell. Jimmy garoppolo's in an audition if he were to come back right now because the forty niners aren't sure what their future is with him with his contract status and he doesn't get to audition well because he's hurt. But yes it's great great point ryan. I don't know when we looked at it. But then i think okay teddy bridgewater. Last year was auditioning andy. Dalton eventually was going to be replaced with the first round pick so he started his audition Hell when jarrett stidham got a little bit of work. He was auditioning so the backup. Usually is always fitzpatrick. I mean you're always auditioning because you're hoping that there's one team that gives you that chance but as far as guys that could make that impact. Winston seems to be the most logical next. But andy what what are you gonna pay him if he leaves you know. He hasn't had a chance to really do a saying on a piss. Poor team defensively. So but winston is winston and newton right now are the most. I don't actually think. Ryan that and i think anybody's giving alex smith a chance to start again. He may stay there and win a job while he's there. Nobody's going to sign him to come in and be the star. If you're bringing alex smith then its to be veteran. Backup gives you security if the guy. Because he's a true pro a great comeback. He's still a really good player. All those things. It's the of all those names. We mentioned that. Really the two right now winston and cam newton are auditioning to be starters next year wherever that might be new england for cam or somewhere else and and also james winston and if dwayne haskins gets any run at the end of the year when they're completely out of it if haskins gets run and those up three games would somebody say i'll trade a third round pick forum and we'll take him that could be or he gets cut and they send him out there so he may get an audition chance. But you're right the the winston thing and winston's in the best position because he's a thrower still young and they know they put numbers up and he's on the is in the best offense. Yeah key the truth is. He has no reason not to succeed if he does not succeed. You can't blame the playcaller campaign the offensive line. Blind blair webpage. It's just it's just the fact that he doesn't play well. Is this the biggest audition in. Nfl history. I mean you always hear about the backup coming in for the injured quarterback things like that but is this the biggest all right. This guy hasn't really turned out how we thought he was but he was the number one. Pick this show to prove everyone that he actually is really good in. Could be a franchise quarterback for the next five ten years if he goes and let's say he plays lights out for a month right. Let's say drew's gone a month and a guy plays lights out and goes all teddy bridge. Now here's the thing winstons. More talented physically. Throwing the ball bridgewater's bridges search and bridgewater's good player are the the the intrigue about james winston as we've seen really good and he's the former first pick of the draft but we've also seen like do discs came see. We thought mario was going to be in the same position in oakland. Depending on carbon cars played well enough. I still call them all. Contact the right las. Thanks so with winston it could be one of them Josh because this was a guy like we say. How do you had ten interceptions and thirty touchdowns last year. Tom brady would not be the quarterback in tampa he would have got paid one hundred million dollars and would be there. He earned ninety. Would you know what i'm saying. He would have got that next big contract so it may be and anything. Let's say a team like washington doesn't pick i pick sixth and winston goes off for four weeks. You say big money. He going to have to pay him. The biggest. my did a teddy fifteen to seventeen million bucks. Go start seeing if we see if we still got it if not then we're not we won't be tied to them and we'll go draft the guy the next year you get my point. Yeah so yeah. It's a huge audition and it's not a long one you don't think now it's going to be a short one but i'll tell you what if they see the flash if he if he protects the football and they win he's going to get paid somewhere and it may very well. Be new orleans may say dude. We'll sign you a two year deal or three whatever it is and we'll pay seventeen million bucks. A year drew's leaving here the quarterback but a very favorable of a team friendly contract right. Yeah forgive say okay. You did it for five weeks. I need you to do it for sixteen games next year. And we'll load it with incentives to you can make twenty two million bucks or whatever it is if your lights out right. Yeah so the only other. I guess option or the one that i can think of and this is just because i don't know what happened when steve young kenyan for joe montana was that at first due to injury or was that jury. Okay joe joe at his back okay. Let me tell me tell you something. I talked to a starting offensive linemen face to face. We had media talk to starting offensive line. He said sean you think just to show you. This is the at the time the greatest quarterback of all time right montana and some still think he is. I i understand it. D- realized this lineman told me he goes youth think that it was just the simple fact. Modern medicine got joe back on the field with that back injury that quick. He said all that helped he goes. But don't kid yourself joe's competitors. He knew the guy behind him. 'cause when steve came empty played well as one year. They went undefeated and so in order to get even the great joe. Montana can have some insecurities starting quarterbacks. Of course they do. It was sore drives them. They don't want anybody to even take the kneel down snap right so he said sean. Don't kid yourself. Joe got back. Not just because modern medicine worked hard but he knew that the play the objects are closer than they they appear. Right and steve was lights out. He goes in the hall of fame too. So what a great transition for the forty niners. But even joe montana so that exam. Glad you ask that because that exactly he told me that face to face. And i'm like joe. Montana said yeah and the guy behind him was pretty good yeah. There's a good reason for not bad playoffs several around and he struggles it right. He's done aside from those two the only other group that's really been in their way where it's back to back. Oh my gosh is farben. Rogers weren't just been like no brainer. That there's an argument who at times was better at the time right. I mean you have the argument for both. Although i still think people would say montana's better than young. But steve is about as accurate as quarterback we've ever had not named drew brees so there you have it sportstalk seven hundred we will continue to discuss taking your call seven three two one two five seven hundred the draft last night. Well didn't get much here but maybe we're going to get these two studs. Stay in here. The two veterans superstars or will they be somewhere else before we blink sports. Talk seven ninety. This is the john salisbury. Y'all house breach. Don't you wish there is a whisper. Wishlist you could go on and say this guy this guy this guy this guy for your football team. Yeah it's called man. That's what i do it at are you. Are you to in seven and matt now play madden anymore. I stopped two years. I just i got tired of it. I really don't touch my video games anymore. That's got like you know. I mean i started the insuring a grown adult being ready to move into a home. What's going on with you. Yeah by the way are. Don't hey no kids coming. Don't worry budget dogs in a bunch of and searching for one and now one got scooped up before we go in a hurry right now brother with these interest rates there. Those things are if you're at a seller's market well the truth is buyer and seller buyer because the interest rate sellers. If you want to get rid of it you want you decide. You need to get eight. More to see today is going to be a busy day. Your ass is going to be dragging dude around three thirty. We're not starting until to see it. Seven nats you're coming home with joan naptime my ass going to the gym after this. Are you nap guy. i know. sometimes. I go actually. I'm about once every six weeks napa guy when you finally catches up to you but here's mine used to have those not like. I had a night the other night where i i woke up at two fifteen. Couldn't wake up right those nights where it's late and you just can't get to sleep whether you jacked up. Whatever it is right so for me. Naps and josh. I'll i'll get your opinion here. You're you're young so you probably nap like a college kid. But for me like sitting either a chair on a couch watching a show or something and doing something and i get that fifteen minute or relieve your head back and he fall out for a second while you're leaning over and i wake up on a cell wake up refreshed. Wake up here dr. When you hear doctors say yeah those catnaps those fifteen to twenty thirty minute naps perfect and you know what i used to laugh to get the hell out but i do feel better. Here's where i feel my worst. Is that the worst. My worse and where i feel you know at my worst nap poison. I feel much worse. Is that m- our twenty minute. Nap nap. see to me. I wake up more. Sluggish drives me nuts. I if i knew the exact says sean at twenty two minutes get your ass up and they only happen once every six to eight weeks where you just so exhausted that your mind needs. It's more mental exhaustion for me. The finally fall out. And take that. And you're like oh man you start slobbering on yourself and you wake up this nap and i feel better but when i have that one like i am going to lay in bed and take a nap. And it's like two hours to my. My eyes burn more miserable. I feel way better. Do you really. Yeah when i took one the other day for you the me up the other day after like thirty five minutes of that nap and i was in a horrible mood because i was i was out right and ram sleeping at a high need like an thing to last like at least an hour and a half. So you're ninety minutes or more guy. Oh yeah i will take to be more take a three hour. Now take one now. It's rare to get me to take one but you can do it if you're allowed if it's out i could take one today right because last night i woke up at to twenty but go pee and i never really. I never really fell asleep. But i didn't really fall asleep. How was passed out before. But i drink way too much water from independence. You start drinking water at six or seven pm your skirts. Because he adds about six o'clock. I'm like i feel dehydrated have enough today. And then all of a sudden sitting here pattern these articles about seventy s cups between six and nine you get back to you get paid back because to our night's sleep right just when the rim sleep kicks in you gotta wake up but back to your point of of getting that nap in that that three at. Here's the key today for you to don't go home and i can't lay down right all right. Eat right scenario after that. I'm going to work out aids workout. Do whatever you do. Don't get too cozy. Because you know that is man. You'll get that nap and then you'll get woke up and our laurels kissed the whole time. God this is rate joshua napper. You got your texas a and m. here you're northgate. Night out you've got your. Are you still college. Napping so in college actually really never decide how hard academic schedule had been credit hours. I mean you take sixteen sixteen. I always nafta tech colleagues. See i was eight. Am class i was done classes by ten. Was the ada and between eight and noon where you can get that nap in the spring when we didn't have spring practice and i got to the point because taking summer classes goes up there working out so i got ahead so i like my senior like one class one day type of thing so you could like. Oh gosh isel nice. I can sleep till eleven in college everybody sleeps. Don't we mean feel like everybody. Just sleeps it whether it's because you're thursday night fraternity sorority party. Or you're just because you can't exactly right bob and dad's saying hey get your butt to school right so you say you are napper now josh. Not so in alabama. Ainun would do it sundays if i'd nfl games are bad. Ones out are basically big game. Tailgate all that night before now. I'm michael if i'm going to take a nap. It always ends up being the two or three hour nap. Because if i try and do the fifteen minute nap i'd have to set an alarm in for those quick naps Force myself to go to sleep that quick so it just doesn't work for me and i just don't feel refresh after taking those quick naps nowadays. I really don't nap ever lonely. Timeout ever nap is if i've win. These schedules were like say. I'm doing like a morning show here. And then the next day i don't have to go into like eight. Pm during the day. Because then i know. I can sleep those two or three hours. Stay up till twelve one. Am and be okay. But now if i nap during the day and have to get up early in the next day. I'm i'm not gonna go to sleep game has to be unintentional to like if i felt like when i took the nappy of the day. It's not an. I try to lay down and i won't see that's for me. Mines gotta be to get the rest. That i want even like i said even if it's twenty five minutes thirty minutes max when it's just doing some let me just lay my head back here right now doing her. Doing our code of conduct training yesterday afternoon that we have to do everything out. I was like at that. I was on that teetering point. I was like yeah now. Did i get if i did. I would have slept about three. Those things will put you have to follow the videos now. We gotta do it. No problem but i understand why it makes a little tired so with that i'm with you. I can't but there are times you'll be sitting. I'm sprinting home to get the sheets right. But when i do that. That's what i most sluggish. I gotta get that impromptu. Oh my gosh. That's twenty five. Gimme boom and then when i do that i got a pop back up and then i gotta go if i got errands to run and got got to do it. 'cause then you can sit around and go back to that re sluggish mode. So i'm curious folks out there adults. You got college kids time. Nap is during texans games. I'm not kidding. I find myself the packers game. There's sleep. i fell asleep at the beginning of third quarter. Adds up the rest of the game. I find it easier to to fall asleep on sunday. Nfl than i do. Saturday college agreed or disagreed. Yeah i think. It's also your second day off of the week in the youngest more reliable mondays days. I don't usually like too much going on saturdays and sundays church. You're up if you go to church then brunch though that mid morning after church if you go early morning church on my son hey before during football or not and you come home that brunch. Especially if it's like. I love like you know biscuits and gravy or like i love chicken brench place i go to this fried chicken boneless with gravy and the biscuits and gravy with chip from a you know fried chicken. You guys don't heaped with the white sausage gravy. You hit them. Sheets stolen mmc on their tea. Your a bloody berry. Now say that to me. You do the most bloody mary. That's the way you're going to have a headache before you fall asleep. And then you're gonna wake up with even worse headache that's why you gotta overload with the biscuits and gravy or fried chicken biscuits and gravy absorb all. That's exactly right. So i'm curious. Now there's we got business on. We got sports fans. We got construction workers. We got people who got great truckers. That are driving across. Listen to us moms at home. Moms go to work. Moms that our bosses. And ceos moms and dads. It raised three kids got college. Kids know they. Now do you nap. And what's the perfect. I'm looking for the perfect nap blank. Maybe it's different for everybody but if you're a doctor out there please call us to but are you a napper and are you a quick stint napper. The long napper like mc likes the length. I like the guy. I like the shorter ones. That didn't sound right did it. Mc likes the length. I just to ask goes sports doc. Seven ninety seven one three two one two five seven ninety. How important are naps to you and do you. And what's your strategy curious. Sportstalk seven nine hundred seven one. Three two five. Seven ninety. Sean salisbury very show continues indigo doc. Seven hundred talking about your naps. And what's the perfect length of naps. I'm talking about and if you're a napa whether you're sixty year old or twenty year old or somewhere in between de nap. How often is it. Something that's on your regular schedule. You wish you napped more naps overrated. All that just kind of came to me. Because we're you know people schedule and i'm wondering kovic created more naps or more stressed. It's not allowed people in. I'm not sure so just where you stand. Let's get to kevin kevin. Houston what's up man. How's it going all good. Yeah man. I love now the the best not to ever had. We're from Watching golf i would imagine it is just like the john deere. Classic if it's not somebody at the top of the leaderboard maybe a nondescript although it's important to him that will get you around two thirty in the afternoon for a quick one. I get that. Yeah absolutely get You're sitting there. You're watching that. And i'm not a big nascar fan but that will give me a nap today. Wanted to get out real quick. what's the best lengthen app along. I can do. i can either do. Twenty minutes to three hour okay. All right yeah go ahead. What were you gonna say. It's going to give a shout out. My son goes saying into props to you too. And then i went to access tax so props to Was guns up. Yep there you go hey Real quick i wanted to say I really disappointing. And james harden on the fact that you know he he always wanted somebody there you want it. We got white tower there. Iran him off. We got Chris fall there. He ran him off now. He wants to run off russell. Westbrook and i feel like we've just done everything forehand and i i just don't get fair enough man. Thank you for the call. I understand it. One bit yeah. I think that there's a lot of people that are frustrated. Yeah frustrated with it Now daryl's not here in the frustrated with it. They have rolled out the red carpet for james. There's nothing james harden he may not like some you know some of the players around him that he's been playing with whatever but i can tell you that i'm sure some of the players are standing around watching either yeah. James harden has no should have no complaints about how this none zero about the opportunities. He's been given this about. How absolutely should have done nothing. Because everything's been catered to want and desire everything it's every single part of it's been to make sure he's happy. Yeah i it's been eight years of it. I mean literally got here and construct it to help him however he felt was the best way to do it and it it just. You never thought he was gonna be this guy to do to do this. You always suspect it with nba star that they pull this kind of crap but Especially when you've been given the keys of the car and then you do this is just. It's it's mind blowing. I don't know why he would Me i know they to chase it. Ring probably somewhere. That's that's what he's thinking. I mean you're going to go somewhere for a couple of years and then what what if you don't get it you're going to sit back and probably say that was stupid of me. Guess the i had everything there right. Because i find it hard. Press if he goes to brooklyn he doesn't get the same carte blanche because there's two other dudes that wanted to right you go to you gotta fill. You may get some of it. But it can't be the same at this stage of your career. Even though daryl morey there because doc rivers we'll talk say hey we can't do this doc doesn't seem like the type that's gonna let you run the show all the time yeah. He had everything here and still does if he wanted here. If he's gonna stay here. I mean including o and they had you had. You don't have to give him an extension if you don't want it didn't have to offer extension you didn't he doesn't get to dictate if he gets traded that thing as much like harden and we like his game you didn't have to but to offer a one hundred and three million dollar extension for two years and it to be turned down. How about how about this is that everything would hey. Wouldn't we all think about your career is any of us in all our listeners that you had that kind of carte blanche in your building ob credible forget the money but michael berry wins. Like half michael berry. I know you listened to somebody. Get michael berry. If you're listening to both at the same time you listen to newstalk and politics one sports and the other have michael berry come near the studio. Take a take a braille james harden. What is it like to have the same. Pull it ability that james harden has. That's one hell of a point here works. it is Here's a real quick a year from now. If james harden is still in in houston on this day in one year what is more likely. He signs an extension at that point or is trading in a year and a year. The sto- hair. What happens this year. Who who had no idea okay. It's okay so just just taking is russ here. Not now if he's here year for another playing games. Let's just say after this season after this season is completed. Is it more likely that he signs an extension or gets traded if he plays the entire year in houston and they don't win a championship. The sets the same samsung. Yeah i'm not giving any guarantees and we'll have the season plays out gone. I think that if he has to do with how they treat. I mean i feel comfort level. I think if he plays here this year. It's more likely he takes the extension because they'll offer the fifty million dollars a year again. See i just don't think deals going to get done that quick so i honestly kinda don't feel like there's a chance if it doesn't happen in the next two or three weeks. I don't think happens until summertime next year. And i think that if eight and out ain't happened until then i think in start putting his feet to the fire knowing that i mean he he could be going into his last year contract next year. And he's got that fifty million bucks sitting there in front of james harden loses money. We know james harden taylor. And i think if you go if he plays here this season time heals all wounds right next year and you offered him fifty million bucks for two years. Yeah he plays he. I think that's more like that. I'm not saying it's a guarantee. I just think it's more likely. But if he stays this year though he's gonna stay and they're going to give him the extension whether he stays or not so the likelihood he's gonna stay 'cause he's gonna sign that extension if he decides not if they don't trade him. Yeah i think so so that would mean to answer your question because these teams that could want to go get him in a year. You're right and you want to pay him. Fifty million a year if you trade for you're trading form you're signing him to an extension that's like forty million dollars a year which is not quite fifty forty seven fifty counting right right but at forty seven million an he one way or the other. He's making about ninety five million to one hundred and five million here or somewhere else. He can make a lot more here. Yes i think. I think man. I think it matters to james harden. I mean it's too much to walk makes go back off after a year. You think there's more smoke than fire on this from him. Yeah all right. We'll discuss sportstalk. Seven ninety sounds very show. Hey craig visuals listening to the home of the astros in your home. Just tell your smart speaker play. Sports talk seven ninety on iheartradio the sean selves very show continued sportstalk seven ninety six. I can't wait to throw now. Nice music probably not gonna throw down vittles next week.

That's against that's i mean that's good provide. Yeah all right so naps or the question. You're talking sports. Obviously about the rockets and texans always rockets. Were taken an nap last night. During the draft right and they did that sixteenth pick now belongs to detroit areso or say belonged belonged and and still does after they make the pick. The top three picks went edwards from georgia. Anthony wiseman from dice. Anthony yeah changed. Its anthony edwards james wiseman and lamelo ball in the first three picks of this draft and klay thompson news of waiting today to find out if he's out for the season on the lower right leg injury which is different than his acl on his left knee. And this is down near the ankle. He'll achilles area. We'll see what that does they're all flying down to los angeles apparent like the warriors are good that that has to be me. Yeah yeah you're gonna go two years implying basketball. Yes and maybe never again. I mean he's over thirty now and the sad thing about it is and he's a workout. He's he keeps his mouth shut and plays his ass off on chains changed landscape the worst. Yes and it's obviously changed of the people. Thought it was going to change who they picked but wiseman is just a got a chance to be a great player. Take him yesterday when somebody called the rockets take quite thompson for james harden. Maybe they're warriors should've called offered that up staying and we started talking. Where'd you start talking about somebody and all of sudden and you're talking about in a way you don't wanna talk about him because he's hurt and naps trying to get it here thirty minute naps. The three hour nap do you nap. Do you need an app. Are they overrated. What's the lengthy nap. Does it refresh your make you more like the at a lot of times. I wake of a nap if it's longer than thirty minutes pissed off brewed like. I'm just like a semi unapproachable. I just it on my modeling career doesn't feel like it's going to take off your curves. Never gonna take to. It's exploding on the scene. You see me work the catwalk before night. Turn at the top of the catwalk. Don't think that's frigging unbelievable. It's a really nice turn. Sling some hip into it. My hair flows through it. Oh that's right my head shaved but yeah worked the catwalk so it really affects my modeling career. The nap long but i do like the quickey. Well i mean who doesn't right mc ever hurt anybody. So i do like quick that but i'm just curious how many people i wonder. Ceo's doctors honestly people in positions where they've got a see oversee everything jobs kind of twenty four seven right where they're at home at midnight. Somebody calls a stock options. We need to know. We need to have a shareholders meeting right that i wonder where they don't know how they sleep but then they got family and grandkids and their kids go to school and they got a wife for all those things right. I wonder and then trying to get some normalcy in their life. But i wonder how often you know like i said i read all these books. Not only motivation but self help novel read them all and you know you get every like the how to manage your time things. I've been reading forever trying to learn something new from somebody and hopefully you're speaking of managing your time hopefully bill brian's doing that in his time off learn how to manage time. Well he'll get another chance to coach. So let's hope he is because they and also going to the checklist of things. I did well and things. I didn't to check off so i wonder if like if a ceo like a restaurant or a doctor who provides surgeries. Right and. I know they're so busy. I think about when i went in for my and my knee. Replacement knocking out three and four four a day. I'm like is there a time when he goes into his office and says don't you dare knock on my door for the next twenty minutes. I know i don't have any guys. Take care of it. And i'm taking this power nap because i would think they've got to be pretty focused. Their gig yeah. You don't want to say it. So i wonder if they come out of that. A little more groggy does doctor drink red bull before i always line. There's do that. Would you operate on me. But i get it but i wonder if there's like is a kenyan. Can you have too much caffeine in your system if your surgeon. Are you allowed to do that. So what. I've actually heard from a buddy who is trained to be a doctor right right. He says that they pretty much aren't allowed to do or drink. A red bull because of the crash right and there is. I'll say rumors. I don't know of any accusations of doctors who will do a line of cocaine instead of drinking red bull. Because that's so much better. I am imagine over. Are you doctoring. Heavy use cocaine one three two one thousand five hundred ninety. You would think over the course of time that there's been doctor. I mean then. Lifelike sports all by the way or pd's like robbie can no anyway. But i just wonder about that. We know the protocol for like a pilot that gets on there right that tested and had have so much recipe. I guess there's a pilot has to have. I don't know if it's twelve hours. You know between flights were you when you're done. You can't four hours later. Pop back on start piling another flight for obvious reasons. So i always wonder with. Ceo's or doctors if they are like okay get twenty. I have to have this twenty minute nap. So i feel refreshed right so i'm just wondering where that is with people in your life and how much napped matter to you. Let's get to steve and north west. Houston steve guys doing today. Good you know. i'll be honest with you. I never sit down and say you know what i need a nap. But i don't know if it's just me or maybe it's you too. I have a recliner and it doesn't matter what time of day i could be wide awake if i get that kleiner in the right position not too far back not too far forward but if i get in the right position i don't care what i'm doing i can fall asleep stage city. You stay out of the recliner on purpose. i can't we. We just bought it. And i got rid of i o couch so i'm stuck in it and the one thing that really pisses me off when my girlfriend goes hey wake up your snoring and it's like are you kidding me. I was right in. I mean i i. I was super bowl steve. Great call thank florida. I love that because yeah that's my favorite. Hey wake up your snoring. While the while the person who's not snoring is wide awake like it's in the middle of the day. They're doing something as if you really thought that it was wise to wait. I'm in my and i'm not a snore. But you're i can be a general okay. The urine you're ram sleep and you get tat's she's nor so she doesn't wake me on her up when when somebody's in that deep depth and they need it let you know what. Take a walk actually. When i woke up this morning she was on her back in snoring. She'll kill me for saying that but whatever. Her mouth is wide open. Yeah napster important to some some some live by them every day so i wonder if people in positions of power if like they shut their door and say don't bug me and for twenty minutes they just get that power nap you know. I i wonder how many like cassia ios or big bosses or guys like that. They're so organized loss falsely. Be your desk and say with the door. Open your boss. yeah. I agree screw you that. Yeah this is my house. Yeah exactly like that. Sports talk seven hundred a year napper. Why and how. And if you're snoring you do not want your girlfriend or your significant other to wake up. That'll piss you off right you off things that make people pissed. It's funny. don't wake a man up out of his nap or female because you may have to deal with the wrath the rest of the day sportstalk seventy hour number. Four texans steve solo on earlier. Matter of fact. We'll hear what steve said about laremy tunsil and if the trade was worth it. And here's how he approached. We'll get to that next sportstalk. Seventy bill longtime friend sean salisbury. This is the sean salisbury. show salisbury. Every week we usually on tuesday but this week because the nba talk in the james harden trade stuff possibilities and all that We move steve palo alto and thanks to him to thursday. We had him on earlier and you can catch that on sports. Seven ninety dot com among other things on our blog is a in. F- let me preface by understanding when we asked this question it's not we think laremy tonsils good. He's outstanding one of the best left tackle league athletic great feet all those things that you need in aleph tack. Obviously you need more upfront. One guy because i can take my best defensive player and move them around and keep him away from your best offensive lineman. If that's the case but larry thompson was really good but the question. Well we asked. Steve paolantonio steve palazzolo senior analyst. Pro football focus about the situation in the value of that position and about laremy tunsil. No absolutely not i mean. There's there's just no way it has nothing to do with tunsil as a player. I mean joe. Thomas is the best tackle of this generation. If you if. I knew i was getting joe thomas. I wouldn't do it again. I for two first rounders. You're talking about what they had to give up. Correct first round the disconnect. I think for people in football versus say basketball and baseball in basketball stars at any position are stars and baseball stars at any position or stars whether you've got a right field or a third baseman or catcher a star can add value like a star if you get a star left tackle. He's to not impact your team the way star anymore. Believe it or not. I'm more valuable. Position can do it Obviously quarterback receiver like if you if you have a star receiver. Who's going to touch the ball and take place. Have a bigger impact or quarterback So i think in the nfl when you get a very good player laremy tunsil but you give up to first rounders get him. He has to have the value to players to be worth it and a tackle. It's just almost impossible to do so for a team. That's lacking depth. That you know there there were probably other options there. Some all that said when they went from julian davenport salami tunsil. That was a huge part of the offensive line. Going from one of the worse to at least middle of the pack so it certainly helped the team. But i wouldn't make that move again because it's so difficult for one player to achieve the value to the question that was asked was obviously. Would you do the trade over again for two first round picks never how many people would do drive seven ninety. That would do the training. He's right because you talk about positional value value like another sports like when the when the rockets made the hardened trade you said yes you do that trade all day long you give up all those i mean because it's just that guy has more impact on your team right. Any left tackle has impact but one of seven with him when we break down the analytics part of it. The tackle doesn't have as much impact as a five guys as as well either other positions or that he used to. Yeah at least the value. We don't even now even when you take the mccaffrey's and the the guys you're taking the first round. Listen if you ask the dallas cowboys. Would you take zeke elliott over again with third pick. Dr absolutely not say should yeah there. There's no way jerry pricey yes because he wants validate that they made the right pick. Yeah and i'm not saying. I'm using him as an example as good as mccaffrey is and he is really good he may. I don't think carolina mccaffrey taken. What pick do. We remember what we're sixth. Pick your top ten for sure. I can't remember fears tops. Like between six and ten. Maybe he goes between six. Okay so you ask yourself now. Because i look at mccaffrey as a us. The eighth okay. Mccaffrey was a slot receiver. I think detach one hundred ball to me. Like he's different than just a true running. Then zeke agreed. He's he's the outlier of the running. Back like yeah. I would do that. Because i do in a heart but greed because i believe him when he's hurt this. Here's why though i don't look at mccaffrey has just running. Yeah because he does both. So if i came to you right now and your mic coordinator. Now's your head coach. I said move him to slot. He would easily the league in privacy even yards and receptions after the key and be a pro bowl. Yeah i believe that right and if you said we're never running into the slot. He's just going to be true running back from the back he'd go at two thousand right now as good as derrick. Henry is you. Think arab zeke elliott. You think i can go zeke to play the slot and never play running back. That he's a full time slot successful. I don't either. He's a free debts at bright. So there's the difference in we're talking about is tons of freakish. The problem is mccaffrey's gonna touch twenty five times time game. Maybe more if you're smart yeah tonsil is going to block your guy and to take. Say your premium pass rush. If i'm cleveland like last week and myles garrett how many times do you think i'd put him over tunsil smart as good as myles garrett white i don't wanna i don't wanna stalemate yeah you take great and pants and listen if you win seventy five percent of the time in pass protection against myles garrett. It seems like a win. But that's twenty five percent chance of your quarterback may get sacked right there in the run game get pushed in the backfield so that position but yet tunsil could dominate ninety eight percent of the time and if the rest of the past protections will run. Game is not doing their thing. Guess what happens. No matter right minimal success. I should say so. And that's where it comes into the value of tunsil really good player when we didn't have offensive line bitched about getting one of those guys. Well you need that. The cowboys have proven when they had three or four of them. They're all healthy and all plan dominant. Right right raiders. Same way i mean. There's no question colts hell. That's reading philip. Rivers can actually survive because they can take away and let him set his feet most of the time right. And so that's why you went and got filters if you had an average offensive line you wouldn't have even thought about going in. Philip rivers asks the chargers his last season there when they couldn't protect him. The colts went even as much as frank loved him. You wouldn't gone out and got philip rivers if you had a lower third offensive line. It would've been it. Would've been deadly to him right. Same result of steady had better put back in the lineup. So with this. And that's the reason why the value of the tackle or that one superstar. Dude that steve thomma to first rounders. Let's say that first rounder would have been ridley. Just let's say that it'd been ridley and the other one would have been. Gimme gimme a. Who's the josh allen though. Not the quarterback the kentucky kentucky pass rush. Yeah just give me the. I just brought him thought my good play rather have that. Yeah all day. Yeah right and then especially when you go back and look at it now. I know he's older. But dwayne brown good left tackle. You should should've just and we'll be till the day. He walks off the field. You should have just good. Should have just fixed that relationship by giving the money and you'd be paying him way less than you're paying tunsil right right. Oh yeah and that's the other part of it when you made a deal you rabbinate highly howard right when you made the deal. You forced yourself into making him. The highest paid tackle in the league. Well tell ronnie stanley got a little bit more yearly average from baltimore and then he gets hurt but then for people that are just tuned in. This isn't all laremy tunsil. We don't think he's good. Laremy tunsil fabulous. It's is an offensive tackle. Now these days or an offensive lineman for that more worth help can make the argument. If you're a guy like tom brady or people who love the interior the line. Can you make the argument that hell if you're gonna draft left tackle draft miss. Are we ever going to draft a center with the seventh pick of the draft. Haven't what's the time by. Reese i mean we have yes first rounders. I'm talking about. Let's say you got a guy who's good at at his position is clinton nelson but rare. You know what i'm saying. You usually say well people will just keep pushing back. oh. I got him with the seventeenth. Pick right right. I mean if you have a receiver at five or the best center in the planet and a quarterback whose appear pocket passer who think you're taking the receive all day even if you're center position is often or what you'll do is you'll train down. Get an extra first round pick so you get the center at sixteen and the receiver at twenty one or whatever it is right so my point is even as good as that guy could be talking about. Say he's the next. Mike webster or dwight stevenson type of player. Guess what you're not going to do. You'll do everything you can't say. I need that position but you know what the second center in the draft. It's at fifteen or is really good. Yeah and i also get steven ridley or i get rugs or i get one of the you know what i'm saying. One of those guys. Josh allen is a pass rusher or the then you say okay. I'd rather do that right. So that's it so tunsil great player but the question is who's worth two first round picks at that position now considering the right tackle has his jet just as much responsibility accountability and quite frankly importance as the left. Tackle is worth two first round picks in today's nfl is an elite wide receiver. And you know who that is d andre. The best of the best of the best right the guy who every week you lineup. Well now if we re-did the draft guests who that is that's decay metcalf. That's who that is sports. Talk seven ninety. It is our number four. And back to the sean salisbury show. Aren't we talked. With steve palo solo as well about building a team and in this day and age. How you build a. Where's the level of importance position wise. And here's what steve. Some pro football focus told us a little earlier but both tackles are of equal value. But yeah the left tackle themselves you know i. I don't think it's like have the quarterback get the left tackle and then go from there You know get the quarterback yet playmakers get as many claim acres as you possibly can and along the way. Make sure that your offensive line. Just isn't a disaster. That's how i would look offensive team building. Yeah so i like to look the offensive line as a unit and taxes are a perfect example. And i mentioned this on our podcast all the time. If you have a disastrous offensive line you wanna creep back toward average you know if you have a in there as long as you have a middle tier offensive line. You should be able to create offense so that makes it difficult to completely overvalued the left tackle. I mean. I think just talking about the most valuable players right now. Today's nfl quarterbacks in a different stratosphere but receivers in corners if you know if if you know you've get production out of them then those are the most valuable players and then the left tackle. It's you know it's nice if the left tackle is replacing a guy that's well below average but you just need middle class type of players which are tough to find in today's or valuable in today's nfl. Like an average guard or an average sector. Those guys are valuables as nfl. And you need the starting five to be good as a unit not just one and the other part is that the left tackle is not actually more valuable than the right tackle. The right tackles gotta you gotta block. Jj watt or has the bloch von miller and khalil mack. And you know you're blind side when you look into the left shawn when you're last what sides though the one protected by the tax he's exactly right and you know it's interesting when he said those guys like a back like a good solid guard. That's not a superstar tough to find. Why is because we devalued the whole middle class a football because we just pay. We just assume that anna i was. I was lucky to be with two coaches growing up. I mean in my nfl career that valued veterans now. This was long before all the salary cap harshness and all that in chuck knox and jerry burns both of those guys. I'm telling you now. I i watched it. We had a running back. There was draft in the second or third round owen gill for mild good player in college. That caught him. Chuck's kept the eric lane. Veteran kept veterans that they trust rundown especially in and that was just a well. they didn't care. And we all those guys always would keep the vet. If the rookie in the veteran were close and the rookie showed that well three years from now he might be good. Those dudes would keep the veteran that they assured that day was gonna play better football and those guys were never the guys that were your stars. They were the guys that were your come in and play eight snaps back. Run down six seven eight. Ten plays a special teams when you need it. A fourth and one play the be the motion. You know what i'm saying. Yeah the backup linebacker. There will come in on nickel or you need a day. The middle linebacker was hurt for two series. That guy had to come to make plays making it about a half a million bucks here which was a lot back then or six hundred grand and then we kind of eliminated that class and we've tried to have the have in the have nots in the nfl now but every now and again. You're still going to get that coach. I gotta have the guy. Who's mr versatility on can play three linebacker positions and every time. There's a ball punted that fools down there making a play. There was a time when we semi tried to eliminate that whole thing. And so steve's right having those guys are so while we talk about be. Invaluable are invaluable two football teams. And i'll tell you when it's nut. Cut time those guys that have been there done. That pretty impressed have did art stars we we. We are so programmed to go youth stars about stars in youth role about analytics and out of the human element right. There's no question. There's zero zero question about that yet. That leader who the locker room loves to the players if you now there's a lot of times you go to the players that the players had. I'm not talking about about themselves but if you went to a locker room and the front office went to locker room and say hey you know what. What do you guys think about this player compared to this player. I'm just telling you that if the players may decisions there'd be a lot more. I'm talking about by based on what they felt. The player meant to the team. There'd be a lot more of those guys that stay on rosters as opposed to twenty three year old. Who you think three years down. The road is going to be a pretty good player. Which i know you gotta have because the salary structure and all that but most guys would say you can't get rid of him. There's a ton of those guys that they run out of the building that aren't superstars. We're not talking about the media everyday. They're like ooh we like that guy right. It just happens and the worst thing you can do as a as a people that are into foot sports like we are in any sport is go back in and we do this all the time not us but you see it in newspapers and on hot take shows or anything. Go back and redraft that you wanna be miserable do that. Yes not just here incident. Go back and say if you had to do it over again. Five years ago in the draft and go look at all the different cities that revisionist history. Well here is free the work. Here's the here's the best one in here. Houston if you could go back. They traded up to get the shawn watson. A couple of picks before that the chiefs traded up to get patrick mahomes. Yep you would go back and you would trade up to take patrick mahomes. You think they're not even buyers want to go back and that that was the worst experience cargo. You're like i don't want his that one. Is michael jordan portland trailblazers sambo. Yeah you'll want it you wanna yeah unfortunately for chicago. Chicago's fortunate in that. One and unfortunate and the other one and maybe trubisky goes and revitalizes career somewhere else but if you go back and look at chicago bears fans will be. They'll throw up in their mouth via saying who can can either of those guys and not even at that. Pick traded training to take themselves. You could actually traded down whereas mahomes tenth tenth and watson was twelve. Think about this for a second. Now i want you to think for a second about mahomes and watson and where they would fit now in this draft. One that you're exactly right. You think about that or bullied different years boarding the first pick of the draft more than likely depending unless of course the you know the the the now flecked borough and watson came out at the same time. You'd have the argument at least if mahomes doing now what you know. Then we wouldn't even in any of those players came out. Get his amazing that both those guys right to go and ten and twelve are usually project first rounders. I'll see in a year or two. You start to outside the year. Yeah well fortunately. At alex smith a long time. But those are what i say project now. What's the project you play your second year. Normally you pick a guy with the twelve sky. Thinking i got a veteran. I'll see in a year or two. Maybe if the veteran isn't very good or we'll get you some playing time. Now it's a it's like like love situation in the twenties right or whenever it was thirty. Whatever it was that he was picked late in the first round. But do you think about it. If you go back and revisit it will it will. You'll have an ulcer if you're a hardcore fan because you think oh my gosh we could actually for the bears traded a number nine got mahomes and another first round pick now you just use them as an example happens to a lot of teams you start to think about dear lord because if you do that if you wanna really you send yourself to the psycho ward or you wanna lay on. Somebody's couch and talk to a psychologist conventions. Go back and look at drafts like that and say. Imagine the bears defense with this guy and remember who coached him in kansas city. Yeah matt nagy called this place but before he took the job before the thing about this nagy had jesuit one year i think pat with and that's what god wasn't. He was no one here with alex smith. Alex smith but alex smith had a pro bowl year. Mahomes i believe was the backup that you then three for for nagy. I believe in chicago so but he had him on the roster so think about just kind of go through that own. my gosh. You could have literally if you're the bears traded down Drafted patrick mahomes with the ninth. Pick and got another first round pick. Yeah knowing what you beheld knowing what you know now you to train down to got two first round picks. I asked you the question earlier because it saw the posed on. Tv was who's in the bare spot. The bears are the jets. And it's i think it's pretty obvious. Just because one franchise so bad but the the quarterback coming in and the bears don't and it's they're just at that mid level and who knows who they're going to be about this. The bears rosters ten times. Better than the jets. It's debatable for this one reason. Look what quarterback does when. He's that guy. If trevor lawrence is borough mahomes if he's guy then you'd say that the jets are in in better position yet you look at the chicago bears roster and you say here's what it is. The jets need all of players including the quarterback s. The bears needed a couple playmakers and a quarterback. Yes players right at least defensively. They're gonna keep you in games. Their offense blows where they're gonna keep you in games. So who's in better. Do you want that valuable quarterback that franchise changer. But you're not sure how the rest of the roster is going to be or. Do you want that good quarterback but we or would you like to be the bears and say we got it. Pretty good ross dolls. We needed one dude. See one team needs really one guy. Chicago bears have a great quarterback which they never seemed to be able to draft that. Have you ever noticed. It's my boy. Mcmahon it's erik kramer. It's nick foles. it's mitch trubisky. The bear since i guess a had the guy where you say well. That's our next year. Twelve years of quarterback dare you disrespect the sex can get jay cutler so all those guys they think they do. But i've done were like we have or can't see where you actually do have them. They thought trubisky they thought grow. They think these they haven't got him imagined with that defense. How good they be with. Trevor lawrence and the bears are really one guy away from being a super bowl time guy take that position away and like fourteen. Their fourteen guys away from being fourteen guys away. That's exactly the texans. Were in that same position where it looked like they had the at least playoff roster but couldn't have the quarterback and had a rotating cast for four or five years. And start paying terrible quarterbacks way too much money so is it the chicken or the egg right the quarterback and then whoever else or is it the roster and give me a good quarterback i. I'm going to take the great one and take the great at this at that position. No question about it. Sports talk seven ninety hour number three.

They have new england and romeo cornell discussed. This was on wednesday morning. I believe guys about cam newton. We've a running team that and it's it's no longer do we say we'll do. They have nick chubb and kareem hunt or derrick. Henry just can they do. They have warm bodies that can run the football because right now and cam's not just a warm body and they can run it when they josh. Mcdaniels is a good play designer. So romeo cornell. Who's pretty familiar with the new england patriots background but also a you got to do a lot to defend cam newton. Here's what he said about defending cam. Because josh has got him working in and out throwing the ball quite frankly this is the rpo guy will get on the edge and can play that downhill power run game. Here's what romeo said on defending cam newton. Well anytime you know. You have a running quarterback who can run as an efficient at running That means you gotta put another guy down in the box to handle it. You know And so in doing that. Sometimes that opens up the passing game for you It opens up the play. Action game Because you've gotta have an another guy down because if you don't have the down there then he can run and he'll gain yards basically what is saying. He just gave their game plan this week. They did that. They how they're gonna they're gonna stick an eight which they should have been doing a lot this year now unfortunately for for them. When you play in guys like mahomes and lamar jackson and tannahill those guys are all pretty good at throwing a football. Now cam can be streaky. But when he's going good hell he. He's just. He's like that hitter that for a month. You're like whoa. This guy's phenomenal. And every part of the game is really a triple option. Because he can kill you. When he's going good from the pocket he can throw on the run and then he can run and he's about six foot six about two fifty five. Don't kid it. Ain't to twenty at hand derrick henry about the same size he's bigger but newton's it's a big. It's a low that you gotta deal with. He punishes the linebackers. Sliding when he when he's coming downhill. Now you want to protect him and keep him on the field. If you're new england but he gave you the thing so if you're gonna you can't play too high because they will run the ball so when you bring a safety down in single what happens is your essence plan outside. You know you got your corners outside and you're playing you can still play zone by bringing an eighth man down. It's just that that safety has got to be in the box and be able to run and get underneath the flat route and the out cuts. He's got curly flat. Like in what. We call three sky. Okay where he runs. He's hanging around the box but if you play action he's got at least respect to run and he's not going to get underneath the flat so you can pound the outside lanes because of off coverage or even if you press and play zone you can do that too and bail at the snap of the ball. But he's are basically told you so. If your check in more so josh mcdaniels this week you know that they're gonna spend a lotta time single high safety. So josh should be designing plays play action if you're gonna play it and instead of even though you can have great success running you can't abandon it. You may actually see them. Work the outside lanes a little bit more and throw the football or try to get up some seams with single high safety that all verticals really becomes a problem for safety's to defend. And especially if you do it off. Quick play action or rpo. It's going to become a problem because their first priority. This week stop. The run is to stop the quarterback run as well. But if you're josh mcdaniels you can't abandon it because even if they stop you for four five six series we saw this last night at the patriots are going to run the think that there's no doubt i mean why wouldn't you matter of fact they would land out of this throwing the ball about twenty to twenty four times. I would think you more right. I mean talk about page running the ball. The ball thrown to twenty thirty five thirty five times. Run the ball twenty times himself. He very well may fifteen carries eighty yards. There's no doubt and if you get too nosy. Be careful that big play this week because at a play action. You get too nosy and troubled good enough to defend. Both they've got hit the big play right the first radically especially his first his rookie season. I went to the game when he came down here and he beat kubiak. And the texans like i mean it was not supposed to be a game you lost and he came out there and he just he tore them apart. Throwing the football he went started hot four games. He was playing like he's started to play well again the last two weeks. The question is who we get day. If you're a new england you're one get against the texans matter of fact cam if you if you thought. The texans shouldn't be the team that takes you out of defensively being pretty good right. Yeah they they just shouldn't now new england's obviously a little limited roster wise with their team but bella check is still pretty good at coaching. Josh mcdaniels john. Josh mcdaniels is actually coming into the building that he may be the head coach for so semi audition for him to see what you're going to see what this and you got a better quarterback here than you do in new england right now so he does some real estate. Investing down here young goes and scattered some real estate. I would imagine the already has been hitting zillow hidden or home snap exactly. I don't think there's any question so you're going to get a lotta what maybe you're very well. Maybe you're next head. Football coach could be honestly. I bet she gets interviewed. Even if he's not the guy doing the iron bej do believe what jamie roots said that. Easter bees not the personnel guy. I do not by jamie. Senator not buying anything right now. The tells me he's not until they proved me. He's not by hiring the jam because that could just very simply be. Let's get people off our ass right now and then turn around with jackson. I'd say he's fulfilled. We went the interview. Korn ferry likes him to de until i do and i'm not saying james liar. And maybe that's their approach at all and should take a step a little while and speaking out in public. I just until it's proven this four franchise not him but the franchise has done enough for me to question my face and telling me it's raining or it's actual rain a lot of that. I don't think that's going to change. And and i would imagine you have a big time right to think that there's no doubt about it so we'll see but i know this. This is a stay hot game. If you're a quarterback in running game on the texans next got better have some ego involved. But josh mcdaniels will be here. Good play designer. The question is how you gonna stop it and romeo told you how they intend to stop cam. Newton take somebody out of the box and then play action and throwing the ball becomes the question. Is this week. Do you trust your past defensively. Run defense more lesser of two evils. I guess right now right. It's the only way. Yeah you don't trust either there you go and we'll see and then it comes to the point where you say. Hey offense lease or fast to. Let's not put seven points on the board that we could put this this this show. I mean you could put radio shows and it's exactly what this that's exactly right.

Just stop by d dot org and see why spring branch is ready for business. Yours from fleet. Either the sean salisbury show continues does continue and right here. What's the biggest question the nba. Right now james harden more than klay thompson injury. Yeah because it could change the landscape at the eastern conference right could and the western conference quite frankly he gets out of the west goes to brooklyn if it did happen which i still going to sit here and say no. Because they don't have anything you want. Are they the favorite. Yeah over the bucks. Who by the way lost What's his face last night. Lonzo bohdan dogs. Let's let's let's got traded since moved right to new orleans right so you said yeah okay. Sorry i didn't hear my it cut out. So he's in. He's in new orleans they got a oklahoma city's got switching to them in the west. They've got like four hundred via playoff ryan this past year. That won't make this next year right. Twenty first round picks over the next six years new orleans and city. It's going to be two teams. Drafting can't should be good though. No doubt no doubt 'cause they will they get the belco as well to to build off. Right in in zion. But yeah so we go around the league so we we know shooter is now it out bledsoe's in his place we're waiting on harden al horford gone covington's out. I mean all the the the under for now. There's no way last today. Which i can't believe darryl was able to move that deal for just the first six background track such a good five years ago. Didn't it yeah. He was twenty eight years older than a great deal when he's thirty four. Whenever i mean people were questioning going into last year when the sixers did it but then after the year he had there. You're just like man. This is contrary bad bad guy. We obviously know chris. Paul's moved or waiting on the west. Westbrook thompson hurt chris. Paul moved or waiting on the westbrook and hardened situations so yeah. I would say that it's hard and thompson right now. I have one other third one. How do the lakers respond with such short notice in an aging veteran has been so good to we question it at all that they're going to be tired at all. The games eventually have to catch a. He's played like four extra seasons in the policies. He's not the same player he wants was right. He's a different so it doesn't it. Doesn't this quick restart for them. I'm i've tested affect the western conference. I said bunch early in the season. They're just kind of close to the regular season. They don't care they don't care in the past when he was in cleveland like and care so because the fact is they are still going to go into the years the favor of the west and they're still gonna make the playoffs it's all. He changes his getting through. The west is more difficult than it was for him in the east but as long as he's he's right going to the playoffs. That'd be the favorite to win. So there is a sidebar. Cross-legged some of those veteran players and how they're used is this for teams. That have played a lot that are constantly in the playoffs group of people. It's gotta take its toll you would right. Yeah and then the other side. We're talking about golden state. Is there a bunch of guys who fresh legged. not to mention klay thompson to figure out if he's healthy but the urgency to wanna get back out and play right they draft weisman. See if that helps now we got to find out about. Clay harden is definitely. I'm with you one hundred percent. That's gotta be the we just kinda stand here dumbfounded for trying to figure out what's going on. When do you think we're going to get by the okay. He ain't going anywhere hump when they gets cam trae so we got ten days. I think things going that honestly. I think thanksgiving weekend the thanksgiving weekend maybe so between december. I really wouldn't free when we're officially in free agency. It they don't sign people that mid level exception than i think the the odds ramp up that he's gone right if they use the mid level for legit player. If you see a mid level guy like in the first day yes i stand. Yeah like. they're they're in the mindset of. We're adding to this team that we have disrupted here instead of taking it apart. Yeah right and they've taken one thing apart obviously with with coaching. The core in this is maybe once you know he wants because you look at the team run at you slide. Pj if you get even if it surge a by keeps on surge balk out there. Because i think that that's realistic. Possibility surge can technically be. Your center still got lead. He's jay plays your four. He's played the five so he can play the four. And then you're basically running g and daniel. Hi i mean. Because i think right now daniel house days clearly you run daniel house. There's three run. James the to and russell one and then you got because there was really you had. You're almost got to the point where there's too many wings if you go back to more traditional looks so covington didn't have been he's he's a good wing player but honestly you get the same stuff out of daniel house cheaper and depending on what night. It is same guy. As far as what they're asked right you would think so proven it. Most of the Still need more out of him. But you're one hundred percent correct with that too with the rockets situation. So we all agree that we're going to have a pretty good idea. The direction this franchise by the time. Our leftovers are done fair enough beyond thanksgiving. When are left of meaning. Saturday morning of next week thanksgiving whenever by the time we get through that weekend and next week we should have pretty good idea where the franchises and ahead is where they're headed and what they're yeah right and then the fixing of well. Why do you want to stay now. Starts to begin right. Oh james stan. What about pr. Lucky as well that you know they can deal with this without having media present because i would assume everything's because it could be via zoom again. It's easier to deal with media settings like the hoopla would have been if when camp starts if meals allowed in and maybe they will. Yeah i mean with him there. It would be a bleep show. Yeah and so it it becomes. It becomes easier to dodge questions. When you're doing it via zoom and i would assume still that everything's going to be via zoom. Isn't it weird to that here. We got another former. Mvp and minimal chatter even around. The nba russ was the big chatter. I'm talking about i. Yeah but now with the hardened trade skews me or lack thereof hiccups me looming. it's like russ's just kind of it's kind of an afterthought right days isn't it isn't it. Yeah and it's so my point is we've died. We died off right of the thought that it's a it's not necessarily about them not wanting to play together. It's more about james. Just wanting out. Yes i would say that it's the latter. I think it is too. I think i would say it's rust. Got wind of james running out and it wasn't because of russ because he decided he wanted out and then it became. I guess they don't wanna play together. Put it this way if you russ knew before we did about james yes. Yeah your friends always before you do. You know what i mean before you. There's we all have something we share with our close friend. That's like that that it's like brain. That is locked down that there is an i. I would lean more towards what you're saying. That russ had idea instead of saying. I want out had idea that james wanted out any be here through this without the gotta go somewhere else. I i believe you're probably more right about that. That he knew more than the rest of us win. James talked about it. What did russ didn't just find out like we did. How's that i would agree with you. One hundred percent right. We'll come back and do it again. Friday john clayton will join us as well as ice cold takes and we'll get some predictions and picks for the weekend specs. Pick of the week to roll and hopefully we'll have more college games because well covance like stopping down of the is utah ever gonna play a game this year. They're supposed to play.

Dan Quinn And Bill O'Brien Fired. Cleveland Browns Are For Real. The Terrible NFC East.

"Welcome into one and done radio wherever you are. However, you are listening what it's on iTunes SoundCloud Spotify off automatic. IHeartRadio. Tuna, Stitcher Pandora popcorn Avi Google Playlist Amazon music and anything else that is out there. Thanks for making one. I've done radio of part of your day lots that goes on in this episode. I talked about the recent firings between the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons game firing their head coaches. And then the Cleveland Browns actually look like they are for real. And finally I am the show talking about the NFC East how it's probably the most Crazy division that's happening right now because no one seems to have a real grasp on it. I know it's early but I still talked about us all that on the show. Let's go off. So what's up by talking about the gray performance of the Los Angeles Lakers just to start off finding a way to wield their team to win an NBA title tied for most all time with the boss until the against the Boston Celtics LeBron James finals MVP is one for as long and times Four Winds, six losses and my opinion. I'm not saying he's the greatest of all time. Maybe he but he started to make his case. But I wanted to talk about obviously great things happening with them Frank Vogel great coach just seemed like the right guy for the team. I know people can probably say, oh naked one with anybody's head coach, and I don't think that's the case. Now we're going from a team like the Lakers to a team that was in the Super Bowl and lost and that would be the Atlanta Falcons few years back a big lead Blewett 28 to 3. We all remember that but let's take a look at the whole situation with Dan khong em with albums. Let's talk about the whole round about and I'll get into Bill O'Brien in the Houston Texans and what it means for both teams of fire their coaches. So it comes to Dan Quinn great coach for the time being when he was with the Falcons and led them to the Superbowl could not hold a lead multiple times. This song could not hold a lead. defense a man who was a defensive coordinator for the legion of boom with Richard Sherman Kam Chancellor Earl, Thomas Batman could not control his defense in Atlanta a man that defensive mind could not make it happen for the Atlanta Falcons. So now we're talking about the Falcons as far as what what do we do from here? What do we how do we move on from here? And it's simple fact of the matter is you just maybe a start to rebuild. Listen their own five. They have a one in game. Okay, I'm not saying that it's the teen of it have right now is a full-on sole reason why they are the way they are off cuz there's a lot of factors that goes into it when it comes to coaching players the organization in general. I mean heck the Washington Redskins have a terrible organization, but they're still at least one game this year. So there's so many factors that can place into play and honestly, you can look and say maybe the Redskins wash it the Washington who I said Washington Redskins. I mean, I got retract all that the Washington football team, even they have one again. With their talent that my opinion doesn't seem to match up to what the Falcons have talent wise. So I think that when it comes to talent and coaching and the organization all those can play a factor plus I truly believe that they never recovered from that Super Bowl wage. A lot of teams do that was a mental breakdown and I know there's been a few seasons since that Super Bowl happened I get that but you have that lead it can stay with you mentally and now Dan Quinn no longer the head coach Raheem Morris is going to be the interim head coach and now there's the Arthur Blank has come out and said he has to see about Matt Ryan and I wanted to talk about this. I saw some people on social media saying Who Matt Ryan's not the reason and no one's really sitting there saying he is I'm not that Ryan is not the reason why this team is owned five. Is he a part of it? Yes, but is he the sole reason absolutely not. There's so many factors again. However dead Let's take a look at the future Matt. Ryan's 35 years old. Okay, he's probably got a few years left movie three depends on that level he's playing at so if we're going to keep Matt Ryan around for three years. Or should we go in the draft? Should we go and try and get a Trevor Lawrence? Should we go and try again Justin fields or a trade Lance to lead this team to be the focal point of the future. Just take that first second. And the best example I can say is looking back at what happened to Peyton Manning and the Andrew Luck situation with the coals paint manning was coming back from a neck injury next surgery pretty much dead. And they didn't know Ozzy how much longer he had left to play. So they and then there was talks maybe they could bring both on salary cap wise but the Colts did a complete rebuild Ryan grigson and Chuck Pagano came in they let go off Dallas Clark Gary Brackett. They let go of Joseph Addai. They let go a bunch of pieces. They kept Reggie Wayne and they let go of Peyton Manning. And what happened for as much as I wanted get on Ryan grigson for how bad he was to the for the organization. He still was able to help rebuild a page was kolstein that did something playoffs at the playoffs after playoffs. They continue to make it was the offensive line. Terrible. Absolutely, but they continue to at least make a run somehow. And I think when you start to see a complete like tear down get rid of Matt Ryan we get rid of other pieces. Well, don't bring back Todd Gurley would just draft you just to see that it gives hope yes your team doesn't look good for maybe a year or two. However, you don't have to get rid of everybody just guys that maybe don't you don't see in the future? I think Julio Jones is a guy he had to keep around based on what he can bring as a player. I don't know about Matt Ryan because if you can get a Trevor Lawrence, why would you want to keep Matt Ryan around because you know, why if he if he has a bad game you're stuck with him or you're going to hear from the fans wherever they're going to be. We don't know if they're going to be on the field or be with the team next year, but you're still going to hear from the media saying put Trevor Lawrence in and that's just not what's a corn dog wants to deal with when they are the starter. So a rebuild my opinion should happen just because it wasn't paid Manning playing bad when the Colts moved on from him. They just knew we can get rid of him cuz he may be off a couple of years left or were you bring in Andrew Luck. I know it it lasts a long plugged in longevity of far as what they want, but we could at least try and keep them for the whole ten fifteen years. You get a longer sustain success. Why not? Try and build that I think the Falcons should least do that now going to the Texans with Bill O'Brien that I had to happen. You are the GM your offense looks terrible. They finally got a window without him. Isn't that I thought that was hilarious. They were own former fire Bill O'Brien and said we're done with you. We are going to move on you were the GM you were the coach. You couldn't get it done. We gave you all the power to build your team. And you couldn't do it you trade away DeAndre Hopkins. You pretty much got nothing for him besides a David Johnson and a second-round pick whoop-dee-doo. DeAndre Hopkins is in probably the number one receiver in the game and you gave him up for nothing. And so all you had to do was go have success. Yes. Your first two games were against Kansas City and Baltimore to very tough matchups. No one's going to question that but you didn't look good and either one if you were play Closing those games. I bet you were still have a job Bill O'Brien. But you didn't play good and congrats on getting the win against Jacksonville a team. That's also now one and four along with you guys. However, moving forward and now you have a Romeo Crennel as interim head coach oldest coach in the NFL. So Texans find you a coach that can be developed DeShaun Watson. I don't know if I'm just late to this hype train or the hype party for the Andre the Sean Watson scuse me off. I don't know if I'm just lay I just don't see it what everyone else sees as far as I've seen people put him as a top-five cornerback. No top 10. Yeah, and I get it always has line. He's my life hasn't made so many plays. I understand that. But as far as seeing the great plays from DeAndre or from Deshaun Watson, I just don't see it. I get it. He had a great game against Jacksonville this past week three touchdowns 360 yards throwing I get that I just don't see what a lot of people see yet. And I maybe it's because now he doesn't have DeAndre Hopkins. He doesn't have as a great offensive line. Maybe if you build that he will. a time will tell and just when you look at these two teams. Head coaches have to be great. Okay, a GM there's so very few guys. There's not a lot of guys that are great head coaches and and GM's Bill Belichick is the best one in the game right now. Let's just let's just established he finds Talent he brings him in he coaches him and they have success. Bill Belichick knows what taste to be a GM and head coach Some is Bill O'Brien. What do you do one year at Penn State was like it was like a year or two. He was at Penn State and that was it and turn around. All he did was take over for a program. That was yeah, it was coming off a very horrific turn of events. I don't see Bill O'Brien hasn't guy maybe the offense of coordinator maybe but as far as the guy was going around program. What was it? What was he doing in Houston? What do they do? Oh, they want to maybe a playoff game here and there a couple of games. That's it. Terrible. And I just don't see Bill O'Brien's that coach and don't see Dan Quinn as a head coach anymore. There's some guys that get fired and you can maybe see them come back and be a head coach. I just don't see that from either one of these guys going forward. So as a Colts fan, it was great to see my team get embarrassed choice. That is I'm not going to rant too much about the Colts game because I don't want to and because if I do that I'm going really rant on for days and days and hours and hours. But I'm not going to do that. I'm just going to say this week and then I'm going to get into the Cleveland Browns. Just want to talk about how they are for real. Let me talk about the Colts home. Okay? What do I start Philip Rivers? I'm sorry. I look terrible two interceptions. Both are very costly and a safety. You lost by nine points you threw a pick-six and a safety. What are those Eco the extra point included nine points? Thank you Philip Rivers and Frank right? I get he's trying to see both back his quarterback. I understand but he I mean he cost us the game. Week should have won that game or at least had a better shot at winning him. And I we had a an offensive line that I was out. Anthony castonzo was out huge loss to the offensive line. And I just want to talk about and say that was Moravian clock is not ready to be a starting left tackle. That's why he's a backup got destroyed by Myles Garrett who worked him two thousand miles gear. He only had a sack but if you watch the game, you just saw getting the radiant Clark's getting beat. Yes, Phil probably have a lot of time. However, Philip Rivers just you're starting to seem change a little bit. I'm not calling for Jacoby Brissett or Jacob Eason yet because they are still in the playoff race. I just don't know if Phil's the guy for this year. Maybe took a one-year deal and they stick with the one-year deal cuz there's talks of oh, maybe they bring back for a second year know. How about we just do the one-year deal and we'll see how that goes. Now it's the Browns. I was one incident saying the first game of the year after we got embarrassed by Baltimore. I was sitting there saying this team is not good. It's the same old Browns the terrible they're going to be terrible but then a lot of us has didn't realize understand. It's Baltimore. It's the Baltimore Ravens who if they once they get a lead Lamar Jackson will hold the lead guy comes to training get for the Ravens to go and get a lead. They can't do it, but it comes to getting the lead that would be fine. I realize account would be like a oxymoron right there. But I think you understand what I'm saying right now for the Browns back to them what you're seeing from the Browns and I know Baker threw two interceptions, but for the most part they understand that they don't want him to do too much with lean on the running game the red ball thirty three times. They threw the ball they had Bakersfield about thirty seven times. So keep it balanced don't overwork him don't have him do too much. Let him continue to do what he needs to do to win to help you win games. Let's just be not a game manager because I know he's not really that but he's not something that they're going to force to do too much to carry them on the back throwing the football. They know what they have right now is a baker's look better compared to last year baker has actually looked pretty good. Now when it comes to what he has you should look good. Let's look at the Browns and this is I think the Browns are going to make it bleeds up wild card berth for sure. Probably you can place the case now watch watching the games and who they drafted as well. You can probably make the case of the at the Browns have the best offensive line in the NFL. They are building cohesion. They're working together on this offensive line. Now when it comes to the weapons, you have Kareem hunt with Nick Chubb when he comes back Jarvis Landry Odell Beckham Austin Hooper David ngoku. I mean this they're just had weapons for days and that's how I look at this browse offense and defense lovely. They already have talent again wage war miles gear both have two great players Sheldon Richardson as well great players have on the on the defensive side the football. This team has a very bright future when everything clicks. They are for one for the first time. I don't even remember when the last time they were for and why didn't know if I was born. I think I was born. I don't even know but it wasn't watching but I guess I don't know my point the end. This is this the brand of the legit. Let's just let's get that out there. Okay. I know they haven't beaten a lot of people as far as if you look at their schedule, but this was probably their biggest test was the Colts I mean I guess is maybe shows the Colts who they really are. But if you look at the winds is Cincinnati, Washington Dallas Cincinnati Bengals. We know what they're doing. Not much Washington football team we get they're not doing much in Dallas Cowboys zero defense and then the Colts now you got a good win against a teenage supposed to be really good the Colts. However, just Did not rise to the occasion in the Browns have and they're looking really good going forward and I just think that personally they're going to be a wild-card team. I don't need a right to take a whole of the division with the Ravens and the Steelers but making the Wild Card definitely in the future for the Cleveland Browns for a fan base. That's just dying to have the Cleveland Browns. They're in the playoffs and closing the show. I got talk about the NFC east and just how I don't think it's like crazy or just what's happening. But the NFC East just looks all over potato credit but his game he won't talk about each team really quick and easy there big headlines from NFC East number one. Let's start with this past weekend. Let's start with the Dallas Cowboys terrible loss right now with What's it called? Terrible loss with Dak Prescott looked I mean just a gruesome ankle injury. You can see the emotion you can see the tears just a guy that just wasn't ready to try and take that next step with this offense and just what just gruesome injury right now the Cowboys I think with Andy Dalton they are in good hands as far as what he brings a guy who was a starter on offense with plenty of weapons. So now we're we're looking at we're looking at Andy Dalton and you're looking at a quarterback that is ready for this moment and think you'll be they'll be fine again, Washington now. What crazy situation with the quarterback situation? Okay, first off Dwayne Haskins was benched and I don't want people to think when people make this like a race thing. Like I'm sorry, it's just dead. Twin Haskins is just not playing the way he should be right now. And there's I guess there's a lot of people that I say. Well, he hasn't had a lot of time. He's got the tools and yet he definitely does God. What are we going to sit there and say that he should be starting right now because these Washington football team in Ronald, they're all know. They actually have a chance right now. Win the division. They have a chance you want to watch because the Dallas Cowboys are two and three and the in the next the Washington football team has won win so they are literally one game out of first place. Solar are we ready to sit there and say should we not put Dwayne Haskins in or Sweden? Not try and figure out the best quarterback for the team. Kyle Allen was playing pretty decent wage. He got the concussion and then Alex Smith came in. He looked fine mese took a hit and took some hits but he looked fine. But as far as being a consistently throwing the ball down the field, I think he's going to have a get adjusted. Ron Rivera just knows Dwayne Haskins is just not there yet. I don't like listen run the Bears a great coach. I don't want anyone else to take what he's done. He's literate interested, but he he's stuck with Kevin when teams and media whatever or players wanted him benched because he was a struggling be stuck with it last year. He can't do have that foot injury. That was the problem last year. I don't think Ron Rivera is sitting there thinking Dwayne Haskins is just I'm just going to bench and because I think you just understands that he's just not ready. The guy played one year in college. Not everyone is ready for that. Look at what Mitchell trubisky did one year of college banished didn't do nothing Mark Sanchez is only played one year in college played said in the NFL LED this just to back-to-back AFC championships. Some guys are just ready to come out right away compared to others. And Dwayne Haskins just right now probably doesn't have the mental ability of the mental capacity to handle it. Do we sit there and say my God, this guy's a star? No. Do I want to see him develop? Yeah, I actually do a Michigan fan, but I want to see him develop do I think he's an NFL starter? I do but some guys just sometimes have a sit back and watch the game. Think about it you're thrown into the game. You're not ready, but you have to go in and now you're like my gosh these guys move faster. Think about what it takes to be an NFL quarterback on a consistent basis for some guy like Trevor Lawrence is probably going to come in the NFL and he's going to be fine, Joe burrow he's off. He's playing fine Baker. He's playing now. He's playing fine, but some guys just it takes years in college to get that experienced Dwayne one year. And the jivin pretty decent right now with Daniel Jones. I'm not saying they're winning but I'm saying that they may be fine for the future with Daniel Jones and people were questioning that pic. I'm not questioning. I'm not questioning wrong. To the Giants by the way, terrible over five. That's all I can say. I mean, I don't know what else to say. Offensively inept without saquon didn't look good with him. I think it's just I don't know JoJo's you have to figure this one out cuz this team looks pretty bad pretty early. And then from Philadelphia play against the Steelers Pratt tough, but just wasn't able to get the win. But this the thing with the NFC East it is by far the worst division in the NFL the worst no team division looks good. But the Cowboys are now are two and three terrible defense the worst defense in the NFL and they're two and three want to why cuz they'd beat the fricking Falcons and their beat them Giants and guess how many wins those team have zero they r o n 10 so they can beat the terrible teams.

A Benz town and McVeigh media podcast Network production will be back after this message. Hey, it's Jesse cage in every Thursday. I released an episode of a podcast I call first match. It's your wrestler origin story podcast and this week and ECW Legend joins. The show just incredible. Actually, I don't talk about this a lot. Maybe I should four to five weeks into training. I could I could was completely concussed. My eyes were cross-eyed. I was throwing up all the time. I I couldn't really do much in the ring. Yeah in wrestling. It doesn't hurt at. All. Right, don't miss just incredible on first match this week, wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts. We'll go do what again now. Here's Ron bit like bars Bill O'Brien time is up down there in in Houston. They they had enough Romeo Crennel. Well, we'll take over were you kind of knew this was coming and I think there's some other ones that that are on the warmer that maybe come in real soon too, but I never did understand the DeAndre Hopkins dead. Deal the the trade their seemingly, they didn't get enough for it. But there's always another story. I'm not saying I know that other story but there's always another story but evidently a management wasn't buying any stories and they may well DeAndre Hopkins should never happen. You can't take everything and he's leading the league right now. You can't take a player like that and and perhaps he was stronger in the locker room than building a minute or I don't know what the issues were between the two because there had to be some sort of Chasm there. There is there is a back story and it involves some something off the field and that's where we'll leave it for now off. Yeah. Yeah, but the whole deal is, you know, that's his fault. That's that's Bill's fault and you deal with those things. You just do the same thing. They've got big personality off with the Browns, but they deal with it and you know, it's not fair to the rest of the players, you know, take a talent like that off that teams going to help these guys win and ensure their careers, etc. Etc to yep. When he left I think that was demoralizing that football team. I don't believe that they ever got over it were clearly they didn't now they didn't look the same and maybe it was Covetous part in it. I don't know some teams look like they've been practicing every day and working out and in shape other teams right look like they haven't been doing the thing you you kind of alluded to that earlier. So well, you know when they opened up against the Chiefs they look like they just didn't want play. Yeah, you know, it was it was ugly and the chiefs were ready to go. You know, they rubbed it up. Yep. That's right off. Well, so we'll see where that goes and like I say there's there's other places that are that are going to slowly get to that point. I don't know so we'll we'll see Jacksonville was in there perhaps in Detroit's look a little weird the Jets for that could happen that you could drop any day. I mean now now players are starting to speak out. So we'll see where that goes Mike. Have you ever have you ever traveled to a game the day of the game? That wasn't a preseason game know? Yeah, that's what I thought the the Patriots did for the Monday night or just because of the whole, you know, covid-19 thing and of course Cam Newton tested positive. So they had to make changes games were moved around the Colts and the Bears game was was moved to a later date. So there were a lot of changes at went on for awhile League wasn't sure they were getting even make this game happen, but I just wonder I I saw a month. I was doing pre-season games for the Chargers for seven years and they got to the point when they play Arizona they would just fly over day of the game that makes sense. It's preseason, you know Faith different mentality. You can just bring the game. Yeah. We did that a lot when I was with the rims. Okay, right right, but but now that I'm just trying to remember I can't recall anyone ever doing this for a regular season game know even when we play Green Bay when I was in Chicago we bust up to the game, but we went off before I mean when it was obvious before yeah, I thought that was a League rule right is had to be. Yeah. Yeah, and then for the playoffs, I think it's it's even more time and I think you gotta be in a full 48 hours or something like that before that so that was an interesting game. So the Patriots use quarterbacks we did they just goes to show you that you're just here's a Hall of Fame coach. Probably one of the best if not the best ever. Yeah, and he didn't have a quarterback and it looks like just bought it just goes to show you how important that position really is. And yeah the value you put Aaron Rodgers on that football team and and you know, something like that or Russell Wilson or Thursday. You put that kid on San Diego Herbert over there. And you know, it's going to be a different team. Yeah, but you know what happens in this this is really it's not meant to be funny but it really is true. You get off guys that are teasers backup quarterbacks. They make a living at it and they don't play for a long time. Then they have to play and they kind of get exposed a little bit and they get comfortable in that position and it's it's brutal. That's why backup quarterbacks for me were always young guys haven't played yet and they're hungry you take an older vet make them a backup and they just kind of put it in Cruise like Brian Hoyer and I don't know he wasn't doing the best. I don't know that. Yeah. I don't know that he that's what he did, but that just don't. You know, they just they just are there. They don't you know young kids. They like the kid that comes in after him, you know, they're just different they give them a different energy. Yeah state of comes in and he's young guy doesn't know any better. He's fighting for his life. And you know, there's a reason why you're back up I guess and that's a terrible thing to say, but I've just had too many of them been around too many of them like that and it's just, you know name danger thing like that, but like that some backups that were, you know, been in around the lake for a while when they had to play they just weren't very good. Yeah, so we'll see if this this covid-19 New England Kansas City was a part of that. I already mentioned the Colts and Bears. So we'll see you know, what what else happens here. And I talked about this week's wage. I mean now this was months ago. I think we first started the podcast so Cam Newton doesn't play because he tested positive. So that's that's all it takes this year this season to get your number one guy off the field. So like I say if the Rams are in the NFC championship game or the Seahawks or whatever, maybe they're playing each other off and Russell Wilson's somehow test positive. He doesn't get to play that Sunday right? Well to me, you just got to look at it like this. He's got a new injury, you know, he's got an ankle injury or whatever and that's just he just so what happens it just happened even though it's an off-the-field, deal, but he made got it at the facility or who, New Jersey. How how we got it if they get it right? So you just you can't you can't worry about it is it's just like you can't worry about when your players getting injured you do the best job you can get to prevent that but you just deal with it as an injury. I think I think yeah the difference though is okay on the field, you know, we we know how to do certain things. We're only going to practice we're going to practice certain way. Okay, no one's going to be stupid before the big game and you know in practice schedule and and style is what it is the chances of Russell Wilson, seriously hurting himself in practice is I think pretty slim nobody good the week before and the game certainly but yeah, right right. I mean he could get injured the week before absolutely absolutely but when I'm talking about is so it's the week up to that game and Russell's just going about normal life. Like you always does and they're testing and he's getting swapped and all that kind of stuff but something happened maybe picks up a cup of coffee at Starbucks. We're or something or someone brought it in and he gets he gets to virus. What what I'm thinking is if if I'm a quarter if I'm a coach before that game. She might sequester if that's the right word much sequester all of the My My quarterback and my my top right-hand have him go down know run. I will say this bridge when we get to the point where it's a city and state championship Games Etc and the Superbowl. Yeah before the Superbowl I would expect in the playoffs for teams to do exactly what you said sequestered wage is just too important to have to it's too important happen too easy. That was too easy to get Cam Newton, right and it could be anyone but that was too easy to get a starting quarterback out of the game. See what I'm saying? Yes, and and just what we were talking about earlier when you lose a quarterback like there's a huge vacuum. Oh, imagine if Russell Wilson wasn't there imagine if Rodgers my point like exactly wage Let me that's that's the vortex of death for a team. It's a imagine if it's Patrick Mahomes, right? Well, there you go. Yeah, there you go. So yeah, you can't lose those jobs. They if they may ever doubted how important that position is in pooh-poohed it just look at New England without a quarterback. Yeah. Yeah. Well Rodger Goodell and the league and I knew this was coming home because we were seeing some of the coaches getting laxed with the masks came in regardless of what what you believe politically and socially and all that the League's specifically States need long ago. Hey, we're going to wear this we're going to wear the masks. We're going to do this for protocol all that but you saw some of the coaches and I think some of this has heated the game, you know, you got a yellow to referee or yellow two-player. You just walk in stinks really drop the mass so that you make sure everyone hears you or maybe you're talking to someone on the headset. You want to make sure everyone hears you then of course the Raiders did their little fundraiser which no one had birth. S on and that that was an issue. So the league came out in Rodger Goodell. I'm going to read this he wanted to make sure everybody understood what's happening here and how serious they are about it quote protocol violations that result in virus spread requiring adjustments to the schedule or otherwise impacting other teams will result in an additional financial and competitive discipline including the adjustment or on loss of draft choices or even forfeiting of games end of quote. I think you got people's attention on that one that that should get your attention. Yeah, and I think he's right. I think that's absolutely right thing to do. You know, just what you just got done talking about the possibility of losing some of these quarterbacks and you know, you know in in his heat of the game I get that but like Andy Reid's got that plastic around his face, you know, you can see you can talk. You can breathe to me, you know, that's the answer instead of them. Passes Mass are very difficult to talk behind and I can't breathe Behind The Dugout thing to be honest with you. But you know those the plastic face shield to me. It makes more sense in the mass does and I I think they oughta you know, they really ought to look at that some of these coaches and to not wear it to me is is hard to understand and I don't care what the heat of the bell. I just I don't I don't get it off. Yeah, I think they're a right to do that. Yeah. Now they have to try to control it because what starts off as a couple of teams and a couple of games and a couple of players, you know, being adjusted and pushed back and and have to set out can turn into half the league if you're not careful. So well, look at this person you get to how careful they around him. He gets it right. So I mean anybody's in big get it and take any kind of risk or chance just doesn't make sense to me. Yep. That's right. And while we're on this subject, I want to shoot out a get well and hang in there to a guy wage. Oh very well Ron Rivera head coach of the Washington football team. Yeah, it's been well publicized. He's battling cancer and you know and not only are things tough just with covid-19 but to have to go through that as well. I mean there's a an extra layer of safety that needs to be handled on his part. So but I just want to know let him know that that we're thinking about him and and Ron is a terrific guy. You've known Ron coach against Ron many a times. He's a special person. He's one of the nicest truly is like Andy Reid, you know, there's a group of guys in that League that are just such great people, but you just want to be around and he's one of those guys certainly and praying for him. Yeah, and he took coached, you know, you had a a a chemo treatment a week ago and he was out in that field coach and you know, if anyone would ever question the love summer Guys have for the game. They need to look no further than Ron Rivera. No question. No, that's a tough guy who won. You know, it's it's a commitment. He's got to those players and yeah, there's a trust there and he's going to show up. Yeah. Yeah, so we wish I wish him the best definitely so you were talking about unbeaten teams. And who's Roll Along pretty well right now not the Rams are not unbeaten but the rolling Sea Hawks Chiefs bills Packers Titans Steelers Steelers Steelers are quiet, but they're unbeaten they are they in fact don't hear anything about them at all, you know, the quarterback comes back. He's had to help us surgery big men and they're a different team. Obviously. They're so good on defense. They've always been that way. You can't walk past them for sure. But there's there there's a new kid on the box, you know, the Browns and people laugh out of their their fraud. Well what I went to the Rams and ninety-nine, they said the same thing about us. They're just too good and too many different areas. They're they're good on defense, even though they gave up the points that they did their feeling their way a little bit. They're getting better to get incompetent by just life. They look like a really well-coached team to me. You know, they know what they're doing their design against the Cowboys whether they didn't play better than making their words. They went right at those pass-rushing and beat him up and knocked him off the ball and ran the ball and they committed themselves to it. And that's how they won that game. So I liked their plan. I liked this football team and where they're going to course, you know, if your quarterback yeah. Yeah. Well, we were on the Dallas Cowboy bandwagon at the beginning of the season and for I guess ego reasons, we should stay on it for a few more weeks before the wheels completely come off, you know, Ron I was talking to her about that a little bit last night our producer and yeah, and you know, it seems like if you if you're the head coach at the Cowboys It's kind of like being a substitute teacher in school. You know, they know you're not going to be there very long the you know, you don't make any decisions. So think about the classroom when there's a substitute teaching. Oh gosh, I did substitute teachers so wrong. I was a substitute teacher for a while. I'm tied up about guy was going on. I had a guy in the third floor was going out of window had to reach out and grab him and pull him back in. I mean, it's just like they don't they listen but they don't pay attention to em, because they know that there's another voice coming back or you know, and there's a little truth to that now and I'm kind of trying to be a little funny with two but there's some truth to that and thought there's something terribly wrong at the Cowboys or has been for some time. They've always played like a bunch of independent contractors there. Just no Pizzazz to um, I just can't put my finger on it. I don't know. I know defensively they're not playing and I know Mike Nolan. I know it's really a good football coach, but there's just something wrong there and I don't know what it off. I don't know how they're going to fix it. Yeah, that's Roy Hamilton our executive producer. So Mike where does it is this something that starts from management it it's clearly not like off the Cowboys of the 90s under Jimmy Johnson and that whole deal and and all that. There's there's there's a team element missing, you know, the top of that now they last Sunday that page or injuries the center Joe Looney he's gone for a couple of weeks at least they made a change at safety and and we were talking about that. I thought the safety Darian Thompson for whatever reason it could be how he's he's coached and taught. So I want to be careful here. Like you've always said I don't know what he's been told to do. But whatever he's been told to do wasn't working. Is it working now? He's been told to take a seat and they replaced him. So there's there's clearly in the energy doesn't look the same. I'm watching Smith the linebacker number 54. He doesn't look anything like what he dead. He looked like in the last couple of years and Demarcus Lawrence. He's chasing injuries. And so it's just a different team. Rana comes right down to one thing. They just don't compete. They just don't compete they pick and choose when they compete they've always been that way but they're not competing. You know, it's it's such a talented football team. It's almost sinful to watch them and you know to come back and not they they were like, he was like an 09 for eleven four hundred fifty yards first half and scored Fourteen Points. Well, you know and had like a hundred yet. So a hundred fifty yards. So you double that that's off points 300. That's a nice game for any Corvettes a good game. But to come back and explore all those points and have 350 yards in the second half. You know what it says is all these empty yards or chasing the score in the second half and and it's too bad because then the running back has taken out of the equation completely cuz you get behind so But it's it they do it to themselves with the early turnovers. And the first quarter. I just would rather see them be committed more to that running back. I do believe they've got a gadget running game. I don't like it. They need a power running. That's a power back and need double teams and kick-outs and leads and things where you can come down here and said that college stuff which it is, It's run across the set and hunting pack and you know for back like him you need to come off the ball and let him go north and south and they just don't do that. That's not who they are. And that's a great player and and he's he's kind of out of it. He's not he's not involved anymore and it's affected as psyche. Just watch him. He's just not he's not competing. No, that's true. No, I watched them Zone copy on the on the coaches tape yesterday. And they've got some things going on like some schemes that don't look sound like they're asking to tackle to try to reach blocka a guy in a three technique and he sees clearly too far over even With a Little Help from the guard this little things like that like it's something's not right, but you can do that in college. I mean you can those things you can do that and you can't do that in NFL. You can't if a guy's a good player and he's play side. You can't reach him. You can't he's going to blow him. He's going to penetrate unless you know, that's it's a cut back or whatever. So like I said when you're not good in the office line, which are not then you gotta let you guys do double teams and and go north and south trying to run sideways and cut you guys off. It's just not going to happen Yeah Yeah Song So Nick Foles had to take on a team that came into Chicago Indianapolis who we talked about I think pretty solid team and go solid coach and and they went in there and it was a it was a brilliant boring game to watch. I'll just be honest about it, but the didn't see much magic didn't see much of of anything from Chicago and the Colts got out of there with the wind well and he's really good on defense, you know, they've proven that in the first four weeks here. They're a real good football team on defense, but I was just awful disappointed in what they did with holes in that game. And I know the coordinator is a very very dear friend of mine, but I just felt like the head coach for whatever reason just tied his arms to his side and play, you know, there were so basic and just so generic and did they're just I just you know, yeah, it will criticize a coach and all that stuff, but I just didn't like what they did at all in that game. They're approached with pools and you know, the team has energized now let him play you didn't get him going early. Let him get going let him have some Pizzazz and he's done this before and and right but under let him go let him play it in a way that they were very careful and methodical and that's not who that guy is. Yeah. Yeah. I was watching Seattle and Miami and I kept wondering why Russell Wilson was holding the ball and you know, you'd only see so much on T copy. So I looked at the coaches tape and the Dolphins played an old coverage that's been around for a long time. And I don't know how much people play it now seem like they're caught up into the combination coverages and and quarters coverage and all that. They played old school Robert coverage off. For three they showed they showed a cover to look which is two safeties deep in in a drop-down the safety and played three. Yeah it it's three 3 bus right and Buzz, the lines are out to the flat what it did Mike it took away the Deep shot that everyone's been getting or that they've been getting on everyone with DK Metcalf. I tell you wrong that coverage or football starts and I think I don't care who you are or what your philosophy is on defense. The first thing you do is you get real good at playing Cover 3 years, you got to do that. If I was ever head coach you don't care who the coordinator is, but you're going to play cover-3 and you're going to play the heck out of it. Good old basic Cover 3. Yeah, because they iminicam cuz in the in the league when you took all these scores in the scoring is outrageous right now all this man coverage stuff and guys getting beat and these quarterbacks are too good. But you you get them in the cover 3 and there are sometimes you log. Rogers trying to throw it down there and there in 3 and in the corners here and he Smothers it he gets up and knock small or whatever. And yeah, I just think that when you can play three you support to run exceptionally well off the clues you let your players flew into the quarterback and get to their spots in the field and move on the ball and moving the quarterback's eyes. And then you start and then you go from there then moved from there, but I think everybody if you in there be a good cover 3 team you're going to take away a lot of those deep balls and you're going to really support and run. Yeah, and then like a good team will do is a good quarterback the coordinator for the Seahawks said, okay, if that's what they're going to play then we're going to start working the hook zones and the curls owns. So then they just started running running the tight end down to feel about seven yards. Turn Russell Wilson thrown the ball. They start working on that and then some drag routes some some intermediate drag routes like from the slot Mike and they would see if that long I'm back or would would would fight up on on a shallow drag which they started doing and then they were starting to hit that and that's where they got Metcalf and lock it involved a little more. Yeah, and but that's okay. I mean that's going to happen to you. It's been but not break. But once you get inside the the 20 yard-line, you can't do that anymore those things don't happen anymore. You know, that's right. And there's a ways in cover-3 handling, you know, there's calls for the linebackers in cover-3. You can match it. You can spot drop it. You can change their depth with certain calls. There's there's a lot of things with the Undercovers that you can do. In fact a lot of times. In fact what the Seahawks did to Denver in the Super Bowl years ago. It said lined up and showed cover one man coverage pressed them and played a real tight Cover 3 in and took the corn paint man didn't know what to do cuz they Corners ran with them and then release them when they went across the field. So he's doing these drags. These guys are coming down blowing them up. So I mean there's ways off. Doing that and I just think that you know teams have gotten away from that for whatever reason and I think the really good teams are pretty good at playing cover three. Yeah, and it wasn't a great choice but to your point Russell Wilson threw an interception down by the goal line. It was just cover one and the corner was on the back shoulder ball was thrown behind a little bit but to your point you couldn't do some of the things that they wanted to do out in the open field down there. So and the bottom line is so so the Seahawks win the game, you know, there there are the better team. It was 3123. It wasn't an embarrassment fits Fitzpatrick did the best that he could do he was Fitzpatrick and we you know a lot of running a lot of tough guy stuff and and he keeps he keeps you playing, you know, he's never going to quit on you and that's that's big but I thought this was Brian Flores the head coach remember he was on the the the Patriots staff when they played him in the Super Bowl so he knew some things to try to do to the dog. I think that that helped sure did and you know the talking about that's Patrick and I dragged if it's factory, you know years and years ago, but here's an example of a guy off that has bounced around the league on a lot of different teams, but he's never been on a good team. He's never been on a good team. Just imagine and he has beat up a lot. But I remember when his with the bills he was replayed and he was really good. He really played well, but here's for some reason everybody's always trying to replace him. I think he's pretty darn good. Yeah. Yeah. Well the team responds to him, right the worst thing in the world is where your team not to respond to your quarterback and I'm not saying it's a personal thing but I don't I don't know that the team responds to when this year's team doesn't know when you first jumped in there. Okay. They look like they responded this. I don't see that now I tell you to me what's going on with one's right. Now. He's he got he's got that during the headlight, thing going on where he's had. He's gone through a kind of a tough. He's never been there before. He didn't know what to do. So his confidence is shaken. You can't hide that in a group of highly competitive men in the in the house. You can't hide that. Yeah, and that's what fits the Hunker what's happened since you get the heck beat out of it pop up and they respect him and they're just a little I don't know whether that he went has that right now and hopefully he'll battle back and continue to win and I really think he's such a good player wage. But I think there's a little bit of confidence has been shaken with him and it's it's not so much that that's happened. It's how you respond to it. And I just want to see him. I don't know be a lot more aggressive and confident and the only way to do that as you get out there and you get it done. Well, he got the win that was that was a that was a much-needed win. And now they're one to a new one and Forty Niners two and two wasn't a pretty game but they got it done in the Forty Niners was so beat up physically now, they've got so many people on the injured list. They they can't even put it on the on the same page the show it on TV, but that happens. That's the NFL. All right coach. We're going to take a quick break. We'll be back with more rent it again after this message. There are families that will go hungry tonight everyday people who have been affected by the covid-19 pandemic.

You're enjoying them every Thursday for a new episode of let's let's talk about next week's games here and Are there any games that jump out at you that? You're really looking forward to seeing there's a couple of teams that are really kind of on fire right now. They're coming out of the dark. Yeah, one of them's the Chargers. Yeah, and I just want to talk with the Chargers were okay. Yeah, let's do that. Yeah, you guys are really good on defense and they've got they've got injuries to like like a lot of teams do but this kid Herbert at the Chargers is a special player. Remember the draft we talked about and of course tag level down there in Miami and Burrows and what not. And there was I can't remember the kid's name at what's the name at Georgia that the quarterbacks are a lot of quarterbacks and he was kind of talked about but when we looked at him at Oregon prom yes prom when we looked at him at Oregon, you know, they said well, he's not a leader and all this wage. I think sometimes Scouts just look for stuff to you know, they're just not important. Why would they say that? Well, I know why you know the kid is he's one of those guys doesn't go out doesn't party. Doesn't do any of that stuff doesn't have social media. I think the charges made him get social media. So he's not that guy. He's supposed to be like some engineering or biochemic major, you know home, so he's different in that vein. Anyway, so maybe that's why they felt like oh, well, he's not a leader, you know, he's not and that makes absolutely no difference what survivor it's what you know Marc Bulger for us. He might say two words during the whole week of practice his real quiet guy. It doesn't make any difference who cares. It's how you play but that all that kid Oregon is in and they were in such a simple routine offense. He was asked to do much mentally and but that kid could play now big guy can throw heat and move these. And Yeah, we both felt like he might end up being the best one of the group and who knows where this is going with and I'm not knocking him all pro. But just from what I've seen of him that thing that I like the most about him is some of the incredible throws that he's made under duress the guys bearing down on him or a hold of him in that the arm strike the ability to put it where he needs to and biscuits going places. And this is going to be a real life teen now, I think it's going to happen here on the second half the season I think they'll just gained momentum but I like and I think yeah things done a great job with that team. Yeah. He's he's a good I like I like him a lot. It's a shame. What happened to Tyrod Taylor with the punctual? Well, yeah. No, that's that's right it happen. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah, so that's is weird as it can get and I and let me tell you for those of you out there listening that don't know what happened to Tyrod Taylor. He had a rib injury and like so many players will do something. Game, they'll take a a shot a pain shot right before they go out. Well that pain needle is you know all but ten inches long. Okay that look at that needle will make your rib cage right there and somehow the doctor punctured a lung and so, you know now he's into a whole nother protocol now not just having a lung injury, but you've got that kind of deal in in covid-19 circumstances. So they've got to take an extra precaution, but the bottom line is Herbert's a pretty good quarterback. I like them in and he threw a nice touchdown pass. They're against the Buccaneers and and a game that probably the Chargers, you know with without a few mistakes here and there and could have one but that's that's a dead in this league. I think they're getting better. I think it's a that's on the comb and you know, the Browns I think are for real. We'll see but you know, there's a couple of teams that are exciting that have not been in the Limelight dead. Over the years that are starting to look like they're trying to make a move and of course the bills they've built the bills right way over the last three years and all they've done is gotten better every year and and who knows who's boss who can determine what the superbowls going to be like, but I wouldn't be surprised if they're in it right now. They're they're they're undefeated. Okay, it's early in the season. Just the first quarter of the season is over and this is a different first quarter than ten years past because of all of the pandemic restrictions and everything and training but this team knew this Bills team knew that this was their window with Tom Brady leaving New England. There's a chance that there's a rebuilding going on there. And in in the time to strike is now and it looks like they were ready to strike. So we're going to follow them closely and see what they end up with where they're built the right way because they're good in all phases and Josh Allen has gotten so much better every year and the way he's playing right now, but they're really hard tend to be dead. You know the premises they're going to meet you on defense first and foremost and run the football and all of a sudden the quarterback and and they've got that new receiver and they're throwing the ball down the field and whether tough team to be right now, that's right. Yep. Stephon Diggs is tsukai. Yeah, he makes you wonder what Minnesota was thinking about Minnesota. They they will go against the Seahawks out in Seattle. That's that's not good at Minnesota at one and three, you know, you've got feeling there but is there anything else that really scares? You know, the quarterback doesn't scare me. He's a biggest disappointment for me cuz I've I've got a big cousins fan since he came in the league and and we did a game where there is Ron remember when they played the Bengals, I think it was his first start and he was very very not the mega read the Browns thumb, but he is very impressive in that game and he's very talented but like, you know, like everybody you still have to give him the things that he's gotta have that would be successful, you know birth. Yeah, give him the receivers not let him get out of there, you know digs and you know those guys so it's you know, when you have a rotating Personnel Group around you the only guy that can happen and went to me is Aaron Rodgers. Yeah. Yeah. Let me see Jaguars and the Texans that'll be interesting that's in Houston office and you'll have Romeo Crennel taking over, you know, sometimes when a new coach comes in the team gets fired up now. I don't know if it's real and I don't know if it can be sustained but at least for those first couple of weeks because there's home they get fired up and they can be difficult. Romy has been a head coach a couple short haired. So yeah, and he's really a good football coach and I know the players really like him. There's no reason why they can't go on and get you know with this changeover lot of times players do get excited. So, you know, they they could get on road because for talented Football Club. They are a good football team. They really are so there's no reason why they can't get it going a little bit, but we'll see. I know the emotion of initially will be strong and then hopefully they can sustain that but yeah, he's he's one of those guys that deserves to be a head coach in the lake, you know, he's had a chance but it was a you know, it's kind of it's kind of like right when Rod Marinelli got the Detroit job and it's great and you become a head coach. Unfortunately mm, you know more of those things. Yeah that that's that's true. And that's what happened to him initially. I think when he's well, was it the Browns or wherever he was? Yeah at the Browns and then he was in Kansas City and we we were we were there for one of those weekends, you know, they had a fatality on the team and was just a rough week. But that was that was Romeo along with Scott pioli's general manager right in the middle of that thing. So that was tough for everyone but you're right. He's got the experience and he's well-respected comes out of the Patriot the Patriot program and a dog And so on so forth. So, you know, we'll see how they respond to him. I'll just take it back up here from the top this coming Thursday the Buccaneers and the Bears that'll be in Chicago as embarrassing or having a hard time right now. They've looked bad all year in in they've looked bad on offense not pulls gave them some life initially and I think they're still in life support to some extent and I you know, Bill lazor's according are I have great respect for him. I think he's really good. But the head is still the guy called the plays and deciding on things and you know where they are right now. They better get a little bit more a creative and let him play a little bit more for them to win games because thoughts You know, Miami they you know fits he comes in they'll they won't hold any thing back. They're going to go in there and slinking around and and do it they can so I just don't like where the Bears are right now. Yeah. Yeah, that'll be Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay, you know Tampa Bay Tampa Bay is playing great defense. Remember at the beginning of the season they were really good on defense and he was struggling a little bit break was but this is the other team I was talking I was going to talk about what the charger Tampa Bay and the Chargers those teams are really coming on now. They I just think they're getting better and better and after four weeks now with Brady's more comfortable with this guy's and what they did last week that great comeback was terrific. I think that he's kind of getting into his mode a little bit and they're not letting him just took them through those deep come back from the outside. He didn't have the arm to do it anymore. No, no the Rams going back to Washington and everybody got excited. Ho man all these away games for the ram there in Buffalo off. Now they got to go to the washing. But yeah, but you're getting them out of the way early in the year and the last part of their season a lot of home games. So that's the way you want your just get your schedule set up and I think they travel. Well, I think they play well on the road and in in Washington's a team, they should be at 1 and 3 they should be they're just they're built different washing is still trying to you know, building a football team and they're just a big difference to me with talent and and the head coach at the Rams is just not going to let them, you know, skip a beat he's not going to let them beat down or take them and they just walked that's not going to happen now Buffalo now, here's a here's a hot one. We're talking about Buffalo Rolling Along here for and oh they're going up against the Titans at 3. And oh that's in Tennessee pass. This will be hard game for Buffalo. It'll be a real hard game because it'll be a keep away game. The Titans will take that ball not let him have it the match up to me is the Titans offense against the bath. Defense if they can shut down that running game and turn this into a one-dimensional game. Then Buffalo win that game where you have to start there with with Henry, you gotta do that, you know that guy cuz he'll they'll dominate the game and the coach is smart the coach and were able does a good job and doing I think you know what Belichick would always do take away your best thing and may make you beat him left-handed is one of my favorite head coach's job and I really liked how he approaches his game. Yep, very smart very very single-minded but yet effective Eagles going to Pittsburgh if they play like they've been playing this one could be over quick again Steelers undefeated three, you know it just think of Winston shake this thing off and I know there's the moving parts around and change that very good sometimes but if they could I think this was a good conference for him to come out with a win and have some good place in there. He plays very well, which I think he's certainly can at this point. Yeah. It'll be interesting. Yeah, I I think gays could get fired shortly after this game a loss here. They're going to take on the Cardinals in New York. I just don't know what it would serve the fire Gates right now. Why after for you, why would you deny understand a Brian because of the some of the political things here, but what why wage, you know there there are awful team personnel-wise the cupboard that's not bear. There's no covered. How did they get to that point though? That's a good question. That's what I wish I could you need to look at that direction before you start talking about firing a coach. Mhm. Yeah. All right, well two and two cardinals they need to win the Jets damn sure need a bath. So we'll see how that one goes the Raiders and the Chiefs now the Raiders two and two going back to Kansas City Course, Kansas City ride at 4 and oh there was a stat that yep. Let me pull this up real quick and I couldn't understand I didn't believe this. So Derek Carr is a franchises all-time leader in touchdown passes. So you're off the all-time leader in touchdown passes over the snake over Ken Stabler. Oh, yeah. Yeah. He really he's throwing that many touchdown passes. He has and he's really a terrific player on a team that's just doesn't know what they are yet, you know, they're just not a real tough football not very disciplined know Jon Gruden very well and he's a great coach but there's something there to me there an underachieving team and I don't know whether there's a disconnect between the quarterback and the head coach or I don't know what's going on there, but it's been there for a while now and you know, they just seem hamstrung some somehow but I watch Derek Carr play sometimes and he plays as well as anybody in the league at times and it just kind of a hit or miss it just they're kind of an enigma to me. I don't know what they are you like to see them just catch fire and go by crazy, you know, but they shoot themselves in the foot so many times and it and he gets off on his is working on all cylinders. And then you give up a bunch of sacks, you know, like has that not been the story of the Raiders for so many has been yeah. It really has whether it's change the song. Out change the quarterback out change the receivers change everyone. It's the same story but they've never had a quarterback like this Ronnie. They've never be interesting you say that might be cuz that's the narrative is well, he's getting better and it's all Jon Gruden's offense and everything is Jon Gruden and he's just a puppet running it. You're the first person. I've heard say that now he's he's an athlete player and he's not playing like that all the time and I don't know why and I know John knows what he's doing. I'm not trying to blame anybody. I sometimes there's just not a good connection between the you know, it's like what happened down there and in with the taxes a little bit there just something missing there. It seems like he's trying to please Jaan off the time and the the first whenever he makes a mistake. Yeah. He looks right to the side. He looks at the right to Johnny stabs himself in chest my bad my bed right now. Don't don't do that. Don't don't do that job. Right you tell you just keep checking that thing down here will fix this on the Run. Yeah. All right in the last one here Dallas, there's some other ones but Dallas and the Giants. Oh boy. The Owen for Giants go into the one and three Cowboys. This is not a traditional NFC East matchup folks know it'll be interesting to see how the Cowboys approached this game. Supposedly they had to come to Jesus after that game down the in the facility. I don't know what got resolved or sometimes those meetings just make you go down opposite direction that you really want. So I tell you what, it would be very interesting to see how the Cowboys play this game see how this thing works out boy, you know, Jason wage coming as offensive coordinator. Who was a nurse. Oh, yeah. I forgot. You don't think that this is an important game for him. Yeah. No, that's he played there and coached her, you know, see this is the one where if you log, Is it now the media is is one hundred percent on your back. Now, you're in trouble. Yeah, that's going to be that's the last thing they need is Jason Garrett coming down to Dallas getting to win two Edition Carowinds this game there. Why do we get rid of Jason? You know, that's why I say, you know so many times it's 30 just think there's just fire the coach fire academy case, you know, you know fire this guy far that guy but yeah, very seldom is that just isn't that easy? There's a reason why you know you win because you've got good players. It's a player's game always has off and coaches are facilitators. You can't facilitate bad players or a lack of good players. You just can't there's there's moving parts to this thing as we know a lot of movement moving parts. So all right Mike that's it a next week. We got an old friend coming to join us guys are pretty decent player in the league. He wasn't bad Ronnie Lott. Well, we don't know how to join us. Yeah. Yeah, so we'll birth.

We had a Thursday list sport fans. Faux Paws. So check that out about at the 35-minute Mark then tweet us your sports Pho Palm I've already gotten some great ones will read them next week coming up in a moment been Heisler. It's going to join us from Sports Illustrated. They'll talk some DFS and gambling with us. Then we'll head down to Memphis. Just want to check in a chat with my buddy. Peter had missed in my old co-host down there see how the SEC country is dealing with the issues that the country and the SEC is dealing with so all that coming up on this Friday edition of the program on the Chrome is Sean Scoops with Danny mac.com. Friday means that we get to talk to Ben Heisler from Sports Illustrated DFS gambling then joins us on Fridays to give us to take on the weekend. We'll talk a little golf. We'll talk football as well. But I need to air a grievance first band because last week I gave you one for free. I unveiled one of my boss my entrepreneurial gems something from my War chest called TV jukebox, and I was actually in Kansas City last weekend with my family and we went out to have a little lunch while, Football was on and I won't name the establishment, but we were in a place with you know, dozens and dozens of beautiful giant TVs and I swear to you at noon last Saturday half of them on like the the OTB channel the horse racing channel and the other half was showing like a boxing replay on ESPN news from the night before. Why can we not figure this out as a society and shout out to the to the horse racing guy? You could appreciate horse racing guy at noon and Saturday bring to some of the degenerates with the TV channel on and we do a weekly rates of the week over at Sports Illustrated and you know our horse racing Insider, he does more than just horse racing. You know, we we have to have some limitations on our budget but Frankie today has been locked in with some of course racing fix and hit on a 440 321 bet at one point this year flat-out insane. So I commend the bar for doing that but like at some point just just dead. Plan your channels. I've never understood why this is such an issue, especially if you're an establishment that you know people who are going to be in for a while. You've already had to social distance. You've already tried to go through all the rigmarole of everything happening in society, like pre-planned this stuff. You know that the games are going to be on just spread it out and at some point boxing from the night before boxing is already a tough sell, you know, unless it's live. Yeah and and it was like free box with free box from the night before so boxing the no one is watching you got to change that. Yeah. We are going to fix this problem at some point been Heisler is with us follow him on Twitter at Benny home and read a bit SI. Com slash fantasy gambling give folks an idea bank is we've talked about the daily fantasy stuff and and what you do, but you guys do so much more at Sports Illustrated. You mentioned the podcast you guys have DFS gambling everything covered all sorts of content for folks. Even you know, long shot horse racing pigs. That's true. Yeah, we can log Feel like there's an opportunity to reach a lot of folks and you know the horse racing part too. I I think it's us and maybe CBS occasionally has some horse racing information. And again, this just goes back to good connections people who care and are passionate about the sport and if we have an opportunity to include that whether it be free over at SI. Gambling if it's part of the subscription package, which is part of either SI fantasy plus which is you know, strictly detailing season-long fantasy and that's about 14 95 a month or if you're looking for both wedding content and DFS content Faith rolled in together that's over at SI fantasy Pro for just under twenty bucks a month. So there's there's already so much room Chris four different ways to be able to establish new content page and try to help as many folks as we can just become interested in it and and sort of be able to take that next step and feel a little bit more confident and we're certainly by no means touting service and off. You know, I think sometimes that's the issue with a lot of betting information is people are selling pigs. And that's never what is meant to be come across we want to take you through the process of how we're actually going through age electing information where a lot of the data that we're are researching is, you know, I go through I I admit to using multiple sites that this isn't my own projection model. I'm not that smart. I just happened to follow a lot of smart people and subscribe to a lot of sites that have really good information. So, how could I take that and present it in a way that's informative somewhat entertaining because again, if you're if you're reading content that you just feel you're going to be overwhelmed with that's not fun either. It's betting you're betting on the NFL you're betting on college football. There should be an enjoyable experience. And so that's what we try to bring home. Yeah. We talked off every week with our guy Rick game and from Rick run good., I know, you know, it's great. Look at Benny Heights this week on his weekly video previewing the Zozo game. About Sebastian Munoz. He's your first-round leader been I imagine that you are wealthy Beyond Your Wildest Dreams after you cashed in on a Sebastian Munoz first-round leader ticket. See, this is the problem about having these conversations with You Chris before we go on air do tell you. Hey racing. Oh man, he's leading the tournament. I know he he got off to a good start in part of the reason that I really liked Munoz is that he was doing everything. Well, he wasn't Elite in any statistical category, you know over his last 24 rounds like I'm getting some of my notes out now on Sebastian Munoz like coming in he was you know, right around top 20 and strokes gained. He was really good as far as his approach shots and also around the green when he was seven strokes. He felt like the situation was still higher for him. Yeah. I just thought that she had also been playing really well into his last three tournaments. I like playing guys that I still feel you can get from a DraftKings perspective in a bit of a month or ownership. I like guys that are making slow slow transactions further up, you know, he was coming off of back-to-back top twenty three top twenty seven performances, and he was awesome. At the CJ Cup last week. In fact, every statistical category and strokes gained, you know, he had made substantial improvements from the week before so I just like targeting guys that are just plain really good golf that aren't necessarily, you know top five or top ten in something cuz I think that's going to stand out and I think that's going to impact their ownership. But yeah come in at ninety-two one. I felt like he was just a guy that you could jump on board game and you know, silly me I didn't end up getting him as the first-round leader. So now I'm kicking myself for me. But yeah, but it was still great call and you know, I like him all weekend because he didn't even like putt out of his mind yesterday. He was just kind of you know, yeah, like right above the field. So yeah, check out everything not just the football golf as well. Been Heisler is with us from Sports Illustrated SI., gambling home slash fantasy, you know, we talked last week about about Vegas making an adjustment especially in the NFL as we had seen so many over his cashing the first couple of weeks so many overs cashing if you were teasing them. Are we continuing to see this? What do you expect as we move forward? And how is it affecting the DFS Market? No, actually unders I think for really the first time all year. I think two weeks ago unders were six and two in the early slate and then pretty much all the overs hit but you're starting to see the under sketch up a little bit and they're they're still close like a lot of these games are still a projected in the mid fifties low 50s a couple of them are in the mid-40s still that's not going to change, you know, the Bears and the Rams for example on Monday night. No surprise there that that game as a projected total of about forty-five and you saw on the Thursday night game last night that game ended up hitting substantially on the under as well. Actually, I take that back. I think the under hit by maybe about 2 to a life points. Yeah, but I mean it was late. It was like points, right? Yeah. It was pretty yeah, it was it was laid points, you know, Carson Wentz got that that big go ahead touchdown and that was a game that actually, you know, even though the Eagles 1 a.m. One against the the sharp side of the Philadelphia four and half after that line dropped quite a bit. But I mean you're you're seeing some high totals this week to Chris Green Bay and Houston. We've seen that move up all the way to 57, you know, Carolina and New Orleans is in the the low-to-mid 50s Pittsburgh and Tennessee. I think every Tennessee game is probably hit the over this year. I'd have to double check that number Detroit Atlanta in the mid-fifties as well. So I don't think it's going to be necessarily a trend that goes away but you're also starting to factor in a little bit of quad. This is the first time in a long time Chris that I I've seen the Chiefs right now at a number under 47 in probably about a year or so again, don't quote me on that. But you know, I ought to follow the Chiefs fairly closely here in Kansas City. This game opened up at 49 into since moved down to 2:46 in Denver's got a solid defense. They're playing at Mile High. So there's a bit of a home field advantage there but dead A lot of swirling winds cold weather not necessarily snow but it's going to be uncomfortable. And yes when it comes to DFS weather is important not necessarily rain, not necessarily not necessarily snow but wind yeah, you're going to see totals plunge as a result of you know, anything of above 20 mile-per-hour swirling winds. It's going to impact the quarterback. It's not packed an opportunity to go deep and you're starting to notice that currently in the Kansas City Denver game, you know, it's it's funny. You mentioned the Titans because I feel like there is this perception that they are this ground-and-pound grind-it-out team, which may be historically they've been and maybe their running game has been their strength in recent history. But you know Ryan Tannehill the numbers are unbelievable. They are scoring scoring scores. Like you said, is there a team the Titans the best example, is there another team that maybe you can take advantage of of public perception and they're actually scoring more they're performing. As a team or individual pieces Better Than People expect on a DFS basis. It's a great question. I think Tennessee probably is sort of that clear-cut pick. You can also sort of take advantage of the idea of teams that maybe that should be doing better that the public is still off waiting to come around on. You know, I think for an example Tampa Bay was one of those teams for a while and you know, they started to get themselves back on track. That was a big win for them Sunday afternoon against Greenberg, you know, I think about the team like like Houston Houston as a playoff team last year JJ Watts. On the defensive side of the ball, I think folks are still surprised at how much their defense is is really struggles. It was part of the reason that Romeo Crennel decided to go for 2 to take a nine-point lead as opposed to just kicking the extra appointment for an eight point lead and ended up backfiring as they lost in overtime Tennessee. So I I think especially from a DFS side. It's not necessarily the offense because you're always going to be match up based anyway, but take a look at the lot of these defenses where your no job And maybe necessarily a couple of Trends going in either way. I think people still think the New Orleans defense is halfway decent. They've been flat out terrible this year. And in fact tight ends of have destroyed them back sass catching running backs have done very well against the Saints, you know wide receivers in the slot have done a very good job. That's why DJ Moore is a really intriguing play for Carolina this week. So yeah, I think sometimes name brand recognition. Chris can go a long way but look at the numbers because we're starting to get a bigger sample size each and every week been Heisler is with us. Sa.com slash fantasy SI. Gambling is worth while ask you what I ask you each week a band give me a game or a couple of games that you are maybe focusing on games that you think can be good building blocks to stack your lineups or places where you might have an advantage this week from either a wagering or a DFS standpoint. Well, I mentioned Green Bay and Houston. I think that's sort of the projected shoot out of the week off. A lot of it is dependent on on David bakhtiari the left tackle for Green Bay whether or not he's going to be healthy or not. But even if he's not I have a hard time seeing Aaron Rodgers wage struggle mightily for the second consecutive week knowing that the type of impact that he's had on this team having Davante Adams back assuming Robert tonyan, they're tight end is also healthy. He should be in good shape there. It's a high total the Sean Watson's offensive looked substantially better the moment. They got rid of Bill O'Brien. So I'm expecting plenty of points on that side of wouldn't surprise me if the total even goes up past 57. So Place Packers this week plenty of Tucson's this week. Same thing goes with the matchup between Detroit and Atlanta to struggling defense has that kind of sort of do the same thing every week. They play a lot of coverage and two smart quarterbacks and Matthew Stafford and Matt Ryan that can take advantage of that matchup. I think one match up Chris that might be a little bit under looked and maybe even underdog Valued in DFS this week are the Browns and the Bangles. I think they're going to be solid offensive opportunities for both of these teams. Kareem hunt should be in a smash spot against Cincinnati. They have been bad against running backs all season long. And I also think it's an opportunity to take some pressure off of Baker Mayfield both in dealing with that injury and also with a bad loss last week off the games. The Cleveland has lost they've bounced back the next week with really solid run games. So I expect to be the same thing with Cleveland again this week and then Cincinnati is going to have to throw the ball and that's been a weakness of Cleveland L. So guys like Tyler Boyd back in the mix. He Higgins Drew sample, if you're looking for a punt option at tight end Joe burrow at quarterback. Those guys are in a really good spot. And then if you're looking from, you know, maybe a break ownership play, you know, the Patriots defense was really good last week, but they still lost the game and I think people are going to look and say odd you listed Denver at home. Denver's not good job. But they kept them out of the end zone and I think it was six field goals for Brandon McManus and Cam Newton was not particularly sharp coming off the covid-19. Weird weekend upsets in the first weekend of Big Ten football. This is just the crazy weird Sports potluck dinner that people keep bringing stuff to every week. You're right and not die. You know, I say the movie The Big tennis here on Friday night. Ya know who's got lasagna and they've already been drinking. Yes. I've already been drinking it was on his in the oven & Tap. Yeah. I'm I don't know how to describe myself Chris. Like I'm not a big college football guy. Did I tell that to people like us growing up in Chicago? That's like kind of the way it was unless I mean, I I was just bears and like locked in growing up stuff. Yeah. Yeah. I was I was in Illinois fan cuz my parents went to Illinois didn't really care. So, you know, I grew up with the the kittner Brandon lawyer off of Illinois football, but I got to Indiana and Indiana wasn't particularly good they made it to a bowl game for the first time and God knows how many years when I got there. So I started to slowly get on board, but I thought Couldn't really be a fan cuz I was covering the team and broadcasting their games every week. So my meatball fan of this is so strange after I left College was for Indiana football even more so than in the the basketball so like I'm fired up for Saturday to watch Indiana probably blow a lead to Penn State late because it's Indiana and that's what they do in the end in Missouri Chris from a football perspective have a lot of similarities. They just find unbelievable ways to lose games and break your heart. Like they're kind of like the Chargers of college football. It's a really really good point and wage. They should probably just make that game an annual thing. They they played it a couple of times recently, but just call it the call it the disappointment Google Indiana and Missouri at least Indiana has the basketball thing going most of the time as you can't even figure that out. So I don't know apathy is the name of the game for me right now. Well, we'll have to see the basketball thing. The basketball thing is like when someone says yeah checks in them. And you're still waiting and waiting and waiting for that check Archie still waiting for that check valve and maybe we'll do an Archie Cuonzo trade been Heisler from Sports Illustrated. Yeah. Yep.

It was a favor for the weekend going over two scoops with Danny mac.com go over to where you ever listen to podcasts hit the Subscribe and you can catch up on what you missed this week this weekend. Well, it's a Friday want to talk a little football and more head down to SEC country and we welcome in the man. I used to co-host with at 6:00 in the morning on Sports 56 radio and a Memphis flag only person that I've consistently woken up that early for in my life Peter edmiston my buddy joins us on the program. What's up, man? And how's that for an intro? You can you can pay me later. I'll send an invoice one of the great intros I've ever gotten one of the the ones that make me most proud honestly Chris. It's a source of Pride for me and and and now my burgeoning Family to to know that about you my friend. I miss you. I miss you. We we all miss you down here, but I miss you most of all so I hope you're well. I am I hope you're well Peter edmiston from Sports 56 radio in Memphis. Also, the athletic does a great job covering the Grizzlies joining us on the Chris rabies show on a Friday. It's going on the SEC down there man. Like I talked to Fish on the show last week, I guess not surprised that covid-19. First portion of this season kind of play out as well so weird because like, you know, what even is the first portion of the Season like you had a group of teens and started in the other September University of Memphis was among them then they moved to wait for a month because of covet the brakes that were related to a quote unquote party bus Which not a great idea amid. Cove it to party bus normally party bus great literally, maybe the worst idea but but yeah during covet a generally generally great idea. I believe Tony thought she felt she says that's not a great idea. No go on the go on the party bus with anyone else. So, you know Memphis Memphis played one week. I think it was September 5th and was off for a month then came back was off for another week then back again. So other teams have played every week they Big Ten and Pac-12 were just jumping into action this weekend. So I don't know what the hell in the middle of the Season beginning of season. I don't I don't even I don't even know. I know that that that that karma is a is a real thing Chris because birth So even if you don't believe in karma karma karma will believe in you you can ask Dan Mullen about that and you know, the the idea that you know, he would advocate for ninety thousand people to pull up the swamp then subsequently get covid-19 self and now have somewhere neighbor 250 people associated with the program also dealing with covid-19. You know like you can you can get by with with no fans in the stands. You can pump in some some crowd noise. Everything's like it's it's weird. But like it's manageable the NFL it's manageable. But to me college football suffers the most from not happening like, you know, the regular fan interaction cuz that just makes it what it is to me the pageantry and all that stuff is gone. It's weird and tailgating outside obviously not even that but just the sheer number of people that it takes and the amount of infrastructure they all have to deal with and come into contact with for a college football team to play much less. But then to play all of the country, you know, it's just gosh you think about the contact tracing and some of the things like baseball. I thought at the beginning of the Season like oh, this is bad, right like the Cardinals, you know are missing a couple weeks, but that's like twenty five guys and they can pair down the coaching staff and you know, they sat in their hotel rooms and then those guys are professionals who make a bunch of money so they can sit in their hotels on the road. That their homes at home and I think baseball dealt with it. But you know college football you're talking about hundreds and hundreds of people just to get that proverbial show on the road every week. Well and the thing is that you know, you have some schools that are that are still kind of, you know, semi virtual some schools are not you know, I get annoyed one of my oh boy here I go again Chris off my soapbox body. I don't know if you got any music or anything like that. But let's let's let's get it. I get really irritated with the administrators of these various colleges and universities and presidents chancellors and all this nonsense you talking about, you know, you can't you just have to make better decisions out here you kids are out here partying out here and and drinking your alcohol in doing the the skinny Bob and the 23 skidoo in these dorm rooms. And it's it's it's spread covid-19. But out here showing your bits and pieces. Come on. You can't you can't be doing that stuff with covid-19. What did you think kids are going to do when you want them back on campus to generate revenue for the University wage exactly you want you want to get those that that non-refundable housing deposit and you want to get that that money that goes into the coffers of the university and then you want to scold them for being kids. You're the choice you made that decision to bring them back. You knew what you were getting yourself into so, you know, it's it's much much tougher for college football teams or basketball teams or anyone else to be able to keep their kids free from covid-19 one else just the campus is not going to be it's just it's just not it's not it's not an environment that makes any sense to to do and so that that's I'm annoyed by all of that and I'm annoyed like it's become a thing and people to criticize the kids. I can't I mean I'm not saying like you gotta run out there and make a bunch of dumb decisions. But I mean that's their college kids man. That's crazy. You make this record just for make a bunch of dumb decisions that you regret years later and the tarnish the rest of your life. That's what it for. Ya man. Like I remember at the beginning of the pandemic like way way back in March when wage probably like the week after everything started shutting down there were the you know photos and the social media outrage of all the college kids on spring break and I was like listen, I don't think that these kids at various schools around the country are waking up and like checking the charts to see the, you know, growth the exponential growth of the infection rate and then weigh in that on whether or not they should go roll around in a bunch of disease in South Padre beach. Anyway, like they're just they're doing what they're doing because their kids and guess what if I was a college kid this year and I had been waiting to go on this long trip for four or five months or whatever. We would have talked ourselves into going on the trip. So now that you're telling them to come back to schools. I think that the fact that for the most part it seems like people are being birth. Really responsible like not enough. I guess we're living in a world where you know respected legal analyst Jeffrey toobin is whipping out his junk zoom. And you know, I'm trying to deliberate his jury while here, you know, trying to have since I mean, you know, some kid wants to go to Lake of the Ozarks and you know, she wants to body or whatever. I'm like, well, you know, there is a God go Indians. So I'm not I'm not going to get out here and start coming down on that. What I will come down on is the idea that that we could do this responsibly, um while ignoring all these warning signs that are out there. It's just foolishness to me. So I expect adults to be adults and I expect kids to be kids and you know, if the adults can't be the grown ups in a situation then I I certainly don't think that the college kids are going to what does that all mean for college football this point, especially now with the Big Ten jumping in and and you know, if you look around the country, you know the big censorship again in the midst of like worse. Over rates then you're really at any point in time. We set a new record for cases yesterday in the country. I know Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan long as you saw this Chris Michigan's got a Washtenaw County the county where the University of Michigan happens to be as a stay-at-home order in place for the next two weeks except for Halloween when Michigan is playing Minnesota when it's like go out there and have someone know what the hell's the point of that it's a two-week stay-at-home order except for a football game in which God how many people are going to congregate? What do we think the is the virus just going to take a day off? Is it celebrate Halloween? What when we have grown ups making these kinds of decisions. I don't I just don't know what changed the rest of us and the virus is like I'm dressed as a sexy virus. That's what I'm a I'm a naughty but we do not. Oh God. But we do know that college football in the NCAA in the best of times act almost entirely. If not entirely in the interests of driving Revenue into their own new ship institutions Pockets or even their own Pockets at the corporate level. So I guess you shouldn't be surprised the big tennis is kind of showing up like like the you know, it's halfway through the party and and they're you know, the people that thought he been out kind of drinking and no one really knows what's going on and let's do it on a Friday night, Illinois and Wisconsin half-drunk Big Ten is showing up Sky, you know, and I'm I'm home of two minds here because obviously all of us in this business like, you know, I I want I need Sports to be you know successful. I needed to happen. It's it's a vital part of my life your life everyone but you know, but the same token if we just start being irresponsible with it, then it's going to force it right back into quarantine situations right back into age. My issues where we can't deal with it. It's just it's just going to be that way and unfortunately, you know, you you you have to you gotta crawl before you walk. You know, like you can't just all of a sudden snap your fingers and say well we've been in quarantine for 5 months that's enough and we're good like it sucks. I wish I wish we weren't I wish I wish we could have full fans and full everything and we wish could have life the way that it was but you know, you're young you're fighting the wrong battle when you were fighting against the restrictions rather than fighting against the disease and you just fight fight that disease get the numbers get the rates down. Then we can start talking about you loose ends up. We've kind of gone the opposite direction and it's just no surprise that we can't seem to get this thing under control the way we've handled Peter. It's great stuff. That's that's what I wanted today on a Friday. It's always great to talk to you. It's great to hear your voice best of luck to your Tennessee Volunteers who you get to God they need they need it and I wish the season would just cancel the rest of the month. right Jared are a lot of that. I've been getting a lot of that on the radio I bet yeah. Yes. It's not going well Chris, but now's Ur home. Oh, that's a that's a deep cut right. I appreciate that. That's that's how I've missed.

594. 10 Takeaways from Week 4

NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks

39:03 min | 5 months ago

594. 10 Takeaways from Week 4

"And now move the sticks 10 takeaways from week for with Daniel Jeremiah Bucky Brooks and red Louis. What's up? Everybody? Welcome to move the next presented by Zaxby's DJ Bucky and Rhett back with you guys. Look it was a fun weekend here. We didn't know what this weekend was going to look like buck with all the the talk about the positive test. We ended up having a game delayed and one game postponed, but it ended up being a pretty entertaining week of football. Yeah, very entertaining week of football and we continue to see tears began to find your identity and kind of stick to that and I think we're getting into a stretch. We're going to see some really good football over the next four weeks. Yeah, basically at the quarter pole of the Season here and I feel like every week I have started out by thinking and most of the time saying that we are breaking records for scoring in the NFL that continues to spend the highest scoring first four weeks of an NFL season in the Super Bowl era continues receiving team scored 30 points at an absolute wage. Her Pace certainly saw that in that Brown's Cowboys game, which I know will get to here shortly, but it's been fun. It's been fun to watch the scoreboard light up. All right, let's go first take away here. Josh Allen at the Buffalo Bills. He's dealing with a second. Wait a second for the first time this season. I can't believe it pull out your bingo cards. We've got DJ using a quarterback his deep feeling as his tag line for the first time. I cannot believe that it's taking it's a week for for this to happen. I mean like we even saw this before we heard him use Dalvin was cooking which is often times. I don't know how many more times we're going to hear the quarterback was dealing but man, I'm ready to do lots of straight flushes. Let's go baby when he got DJ look to see what he's dealing. I mean, there's multiple quarterbacks going to be dealing all throughout the season. You know, what Rhett deal with it through the South. Let's get home. I can I roll mind, please. Can I please roll my my take off? Replace the snap Josh going to throw it off play-action fires, it towards the end zone but they're junk. He is out of Bounds at the half-yard line. What a great catch the best part about doing these shows is I don't know some things that I say, you know, you have the voice activation on your on your computer and it's so they think I'm asking them a question asking you a question. I'm just trying to talk with red bucket here. Okay computer. Leave me alone. But look when you watch the Buffalo Bills in this game, it was fun to watch. I put a little a little vignette of plays Buck on Twitter because they're just missiles from Josh Allen back there in the pocket and it got me thinking from a scouting standpoint. Sometimes we can talk about what a guy doesn't have and that's that's that's the wrong way to scout. But when you talk about Josh down and talk about the size yet. Let us assume the arm strength right now you start looking at the intelligence and the work ethic when you have all five of those things there, you know, he his accuracy wasn't great had some footwork things he needed to clean off. He's found a way to get that done. I mean the improvements he's made year to year and especially the leap he's taken. This year's been it's been outstanding and it's kind of changed my thought process and we'll get to Justin Herbert a little bit later on the show, but he's big strong tough. Athletic smart guys. They figure it out. Yeah DJ's funny you talk about that because I do believe Josh Allen and even later Lamar Jackson. They have changed the way that we look at quarterbacks for so long. It was about nitpicking and talking about what quarterbacks can't do when they're entering into the league. But now it's all about the can do what can they do? What can they bring to the table? And hopefully you can pair them with an office of coordinator who can really build an offense around their strengths because we're seeing with Josh Allen in Buffalo when they built this offense around the things that he does really well man, they've gone from good to great and this is a team is really a legitimate Super Bowl Contender this season. Yeah and guys Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs and the sink that they are in right now are disproving any theories out there about the khong. 19 era of training camp and no preseason causing problems for chemistry with any quarterbacks in any wide receivers. I mean these two guys had linked up on a feel for real until week one. So the fact that they are completing passes right now to 74% catch percentage for Stefon Diggs really impressive and I don't remember this is no disrespect to Stefon Diggs, but I don't remember him going up and making these huge contested catches at this rate. Like we saw on Sunday going up over the top on a deep ball to pull one down for Josh Allen and then that's kind of like a a symptom of what the bills receiving Corps has been about this season and we saw all in this game called Beasley with a huge High degree of difficulty catch at the goal line same for John Brown. Even Gabriel Davis. The rookie is in there. I mean, these guys are are elevating their level of play and if you want to talk about Josh Allen and that respect, he's a truck right now. He's bringing everybody with him and I think that's wrong. Cool to watch this kind of bills offense kind of come together the trust of the talent DJ that you had talked about last week as well. Yeah, we're seeing those things come together. It's been fun to watch and what they're doing is on the other side of things. They've got to find a path Russians Max Crosby a loan right now. They've got to find a way to generate some heat on the quarterback. All right Buck. What's your what's your first take away here the Browns run over the cowboy. Here's Mayfield Auto reverse, they're going to give it to bekim. He's rolling to the right and running. He's up to the 50 to the 45 to the 40 3533 goes to the 2015 10-5 touch off. He caught a hydric Odell Beckham jr. Fifty yards on the run the Cleveland Browns are scary team to watch and prepare for because I'm running game is one of the best that I've seen they're able to do it in a variety of different ways without their Time Rush and nature of who went out the game early with an injury. They were able to put up 300K. 7 rushing yards on 40 attempts and what was so beautiful to watch about the way they did it. They did it with an assortment of power runs inside and outside deceptive runs reverses in the rounds and everybody touching the ball and it really set the table for Baker Mayfield to still have a solid day passing the ball because the Cleveland Browns have really stepped into this identity of being a ground-and-pound team. They are one of the teams that no one wants to face because they're going to hit you and hit you in the mouth and I don't know how many defenses can withstand the power and the ferocity of this rushing attack. I mean, hey buddy, it was Unreal and think about the fact that Nick Chubb got injured and was out for the game early against the Cowboys. Let me think about what this total might have been if he'd have stayed in the game. Yes, Kareem hunt came in and put up near a hundred years had the contribution from Odell Beckham jr. But just to put the 300 rushing yards in perspective. So far this season through four weeks there have been twenty-four teams with under 3 a.m. Hundred total yards in games this season like that that is an unreal amount of rushing production for the Cleveland Browns. Most of the Cowboys have allowed and walk-ins me to that defense and you know DJ I think you've seen a lot out there on social media and in the media in general about the coaching from the Cowboys on defense and whether you know, Mike daum scheme is too difficult and whether it's just not working. It's not a fit for some of these players, you know, I look I turned on, you know, I turned this game on and went back and looked at a couple of the plays including the Odell Beckham running at the end. And the one thing I had a coach tell me is you never want to see change in speed right? You never want to see guys that are giving 50% and then have to take it up a notch when they see that somebody else is not going to make the tackle. It's not all about effort. It's also about expectation that someone else is going to get the job done. And so I don't have to go full speed at this point, but it's hard to question game. Is effort, you know, especially in this league, but man it just I saw a lot of that change in speed on a couple of those big plays including the one that eventually sealed the deal. Well, I want to get the Bucky again on this cuz book is is doing some work off the Cowboys and and really following this team closely so buck. When I went back and watched the tape defensively rep was talking about the scheme. I came away looking at it as more of an effort issue and a talent issue and I can give you some specific examples off on the reverse to Odell Beckham. Not the one who scores on but all the Smith he gets reached by the tight end he sees it he gets reached. He doesn't even try and fight through it. He allows allows to run to get outside. I mean does affect us it back in it was terrible effort on his part on the backside of the Run Jaylon Smith tweeted it out because I'm like as he injured what is wrong with him? Because one thing he's always been able to do was run. Yeah, and he's there's no effort from him on the backside to pursue and I don't know if he's hurt if he's just exhausted or what his deal is but it was awful. There's another run they pop it was a an explosive run of 20-plus yards there in the short side of the field. They Corner cat it from the short side of the field. He's unblocked your untouched. That should be a tackle-for-loss. He runs right by the running back on the way to Baker Mayfield. I'm just like just open your eyes be a football player. There's other places you see Jordan Lewis gets flat-backed. He he ends up falling back into the safety. He's on the ground the defensive tackle and Pursuits on the ground. They got four or five guys on the ground while you're seeing an explosive run pop and I'm sitting here going not going to be a Mike Nolan apologist. I'm sure there's some schematic things they can do differently. But man, this was a talent and effort thing when I watch the tape it was it was gross. You know, it's funny that you bring that up DJ because I was wondering if I was alone in seeing that right and I know that cowboysnation had a tough time with Rod Marinelli and Chris Richard, they didn't like the simple scheme, but the one thing that I can tell you and that there was a demand package the standard of hustle effort discipline and accountability when it came to that defense and I'm not seeing that and I'm glad you guys pointed out those examples because when I watch Odell Beckham Junior on the job Cleansing reverse that effort that was displayed by gas on the backside was unacceptable. You wouldn't accept it in youth ball. And I don't know how they're been able to watch the tape today and doubtless and not chew all those defendants for not giving maximum effort their lack of effort overwhelms any of your answer passes their lack of execution this team that doesn't play really hard to continue to lose. Yep. I mean, I don't know how to say it any other way, but I think that's that's perfect. All right, right. What's your what's your take away here? Take away. Number three, Joe Burrows first win as a pro showcases The Bangles Corfu, Jersey Borough will line up in the shotgun, even though it's 3rd and less than a yard. He'll hand it to mix and mix and bursting gospel to attend the five touchdown show Max in Los Angles his third of the day. Yeah. Look we're going to talk about Joe burrow and the fact that he's the first rookie with 300-plus passing yards and three straight games since nineteen fifty and they get their first win this week a big one over the Jaguars. They do it at home. But this game was really about Joe Mixon and about how Zack Taylor finally figured out how to get him some real production. I mean, I guess first three-touchdown game of his career or they're starting to figure that out. But you know, I think that's where this offense needs to focus moving forward. But the fact that you also have a terrific connection Brewing between Borough and the rookie wideout Higgins first pick of the second round and also the young wideout Tyler Boyd who they paid and deservedly so that young nucleus right there Borough Mixon Higgins and void. It's going to make our old pal. Ryan Young's our producer who's no longer with us here at the NFL Network really proud to be a Bengals fan happy for you young people cuz you guys have some stuff to be really excited about now. Just you know, they fix the offensive one. I mean when you look at this team and you look at Joe burrow, he is as cool as a cucumber in the pocket the way that he plays the way he performs the leadership has brought. Standing and read you bring up a good point about the chemistry and the connectivity that he has with teenagers and tell avoid those two guys are their best to receivers AJ Green is a shell of himself and as they continue to keep up with those two on the outside and Joe mix and being the work horse and the backfield I do believe there should be a lot of optimism for what is going on in Cincinnati. Yeah. It was fun to watch it because they want empty eleven times when I went back and charted it which is something that Joe Broz very comfortable with had some very efficient plays out of empty, but the other thing and I'll get back to you on this Bucky is that I thought Jack Taylor did a beautiful job of game planning and what they're able to find is they were able to hit overs and not the Deep Over car that those middle over routes on the other side of the numbers from The Far Side and he hit it over and over and over again. No pun intended off but a safety was at fifteen and so they were just getting that they were getting that easy throw and it's even in manners own they're able to get those nice easy overthrows and Borough just found a rhythm with those they did with tight ends. They did it with with dead. Worried they did with D Higgins. They were too tight ends actually with a sample did it as well. So they did a nice job of really kind of finding the void in that defense and they just attacked it from a lot of different looks you know, what I'm getting to see DJ is a mix of what Joe burrow did LSU which is what you pointed out with the empty formations and what Zach Taylor wants to evolve this offense to which is what he came from in LA with Xiang say the Deep Over routes the max protection two and three men browse with these deep crossers and post routes. Those are the explosive plays off play-action. And so it is slowly but surely beginning to come together Zack Taylor should be encouraged by his Young quarterback and Cincinnati. Bengals fans should be able to imagine what this office is going to look like in a year or two. Hey, let me ask you real quick before we moved here DJ is AJ Green of Cincinnati Bengal at the trade deadline this year. Well, I don't think they'll get any form. I don't think you're going to see a line. It's going to that right right now. He just can't he can't run. I mean in almost when you're watching them on offense. I just wanna let's get more balls to these other planes with Boyd what he can do. We know what he is Tee Higgins as you mentioned just continue to grow and evolve. They've got a couple of good tight ends. So sample made some nice schedule mixing. Yeah sample did a nice job and there was another tied in Jones. I want to say who made a plays as well. So look, they've got other weapons. He's look he's not going to be back next year for sure. I'm sure you're trying to trade him at the trade deadline. I don't think you're going to be able to get much for him. All right, let's keep it moving here. Let's stay on the quarterbacks here Brady and Herbert. They were outstanding Herbert Stands Tall pushes down field has a receiver caught still on his feet Jalen Guyton, ten, five touchdown Chargers Poise Under Pressure. Justin Herbert does it again? Well, you mentioned that you mentioned it a little bit earlier Rhett talking about Borough and saying this is the first call log. Back to go three straight 300-yard games, which were you look at this game takes a short and he would have done the exact same thing. So he's been outstanding in his three starts. I'll start with him off the degree of difficulty on some of these plays eluding the free rusher making big-time stick throws the Deep ball on the 53 yard touchdown right here is one of the best that you'll ever see. This is this is 62 yards in the air and he's fading away and it's just right on the money. I mean, he was outstanding and he's playing with no fear. I want him to be a little more aggressive when he was at Oregon. He's he's gotten more aggressive of what we've seen here with the Chargers. So again going back to Josh Allen big strong tough smart, you're going to see those guys kind of figure things out athletic as well. You could not be more impressed with Justin Herbert. I'd like to have one, you know, the throw at the end of the game the interception like to have that one back you're going to have to live with some of those place and then you flip it over to Tom Brady and look this team was dead. There was 24 to 7 right before the birth. Chargers have the ball forty seconds left. I thought they probably just take a couple knees and get out of there. They had one timeout left bucks and they don't they decided to run the ball and it's the kind of a goofy exchange a little bit high on the handoff to Joshua Kelly. He puts it on the ground and domican Suh was right in his face turn over and then you just saw Brady flip the switch. And from that point on he was on fire. I mean, he didn't make mistakes they were efficient and then when they were opportunities down the field he attacked so Tom Brady gotten better every week Rhett and I would say that was by far his best performance. You can't play better than he did in the second half of that game wage. I would say like it was a great performance by both quarterbacks. I think the Tom Brady think is really interesting because he had another fix 6 and you begin to wonder like man. Can Tom Brady figure this thing out but then you're right d j a m a veteran quarterback can seize the momentum of the game and the charge is gifted them and easy scoring opportunity. And once Tom Brady saw the ball go in the basket he got hot and so I think that is dead. Or other Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That is scary. Tom Brady is just good enough that if you give him some crumbs he certainly can make a meal out of it and he did that against the charges. Yeah, look his passer rating has gone up every week. He's been a bust their total yards as an offense has gone up every single week this season. So I think you're starting to see some consistent Improvement here and we started to see the vertical passed game. I think off this game that we have all season long as they start to wonder if they're really starting to feel a little bit more comfortable in that Bruce Arians themed offense. I know Byron Leftwich has done a terrific job kind of pushing the buttons and calling the plays them and Brady's five touchdowns a five different receivers in this game believe that's the first time in his career that he's throwing that many to that many different guys in a game one of them know Jay Howard page there ruptured Achilles. He's like the out for he is out for the season with that injury. So good news though is that you got can break into the end zone. So you still got break in Rob Gronkowski to work the middle of the field the time. Spot I thought it was also interesting in this game. We we talked about on her after aftermath production meeting call earlier the Chargers for touchdowns in this game were scored by undrafted free agents. And you know, actually I thought it was interesting. That's not the first time that's happened. It is the first time it's happened since 2018 and I got a little tin takeaway trivia here for you the Saints or the last seem to have four touchdowns scored by undrafted free agents in the same game. It did it 2018 week 12 against the Falcons. Can you guys named one of the four? Just give me one of them saints for undrafted? And what year was this is this 2018 two years ago. Okay, two years ago was Cadet one of them. That's a good that's a good thought. He wasn't one was a tight end one was a tight thousand and three were receivers. I have I don't I'm out. I'm out. It's receivers. Yeah, believe it or not Snape Snape was need undrafted. Was it Willie Snead? He didn't score wasn't him another really good guess though. I think he was he was he wasn't on the states. So I'll give it to him. Tommy Lee Lewis. Okay there what for 100 Dan Arnold the tight end for 200 Kirkwood off the receiver for 300 and how about shot? Austin Carr awesome car would that would have been the one I should have known I could have had a shot at Austin Carr. The other ones know like I love I love a little trivia. All right Buck was just give me five here Buck. What's v takeaway Lamar Jackson in the Ravens get back on track jacket will keep it on the read-option. He's got a whole forty like great story. He's going to go 20105 off Jackson touchdown Ravens, you know with the Baltimore Ravens. I think it's really simple. They just need to know who they are and always stick to that identity in this game against Washington. They got back to just pounding the four. Football running the read-option doing the things that makes them more Jackson very comfortable. This offense was a spectacular they did away from trying to be cute and they just went to Old Smash Mouth football. And as long as they kind of stay in that lane. This is a team that is very very difficult to be sure. We make a lot of it about when they match up with the Kansas City Chiefs but against everybody else. They don't have a problem. I think they just need to focus on what they do and what they do. Well the winds will continue to come and we'll see how they get it done in the playoffs but I like them getting back on track. Yeah. So like they're back on track. I still don't think like we're even close to where they will be at some point this situation once they start firing on all cylinders for Washington. And so I continue to be impressed by Antonio Gibson. I mean, he's an exciting player. I thought the game plan from Scott Turner was really good get them on Haskins hands quick and get him out of those quick throws quick screens. Get some offensive lineman out in front of Gibson. Let him do work with the ball in his hands and try to counteract some of the Blitz game from the Ravens and and suck. Pressure that they're front can put on you Gibson's 81 yards after the catch in this game of second most we saw this week is Ezekiel Elliott only player wedmore run after the catch. Which also by the way said something about usage in the Cowboys offense. But look I Gibson was a player with the ball in his hands at Memphis and we're seeing it now not just in the backfield, you know, even though he did he was basically that's the only production that Washington had on a single touchdown Drive. He's he's become their offense in the backfield and it's not just they're too they're getting him out on the perimeter. It's been fun to watch. Well, that's a little more excited about the Washington football team than I am. So I'm not going to add on to that because I'm I'm going to be nice here. I want to be encouraging to the to that fan base and feel good about what you got there and the Very rugged tough NFC East. All right off back to the takeaways here number six for me. We saw a saintsational 20-25 minute stretch in Detroit where you going to drop back and look to throw he delivers Parts side has a bath But touchdown trequan Smith the Saints offense has made it look easy trequan Smith from 20 yards out in the states with 28 unanswered points here in the first half off believable into the first half for the Saints. I want to ask you guys this like Mike Tirico mentioned it in one of his Recaps last night the Saints allowed the first Fourteen Points of this game and they also allowed the final fifteen points of the game. Does that sound like a recipe for success to you? Well, it does when you have a 35-point stretch in 25 five plus 26 minutes in the second and third quarters absolutely unprecedented right there. They go five straight touchdowns on five straight possessions tail end of the first quarter first part of the third quarter. I mean they were on fire and that look that says something about their offense right that they're finding ways to do a trick want Smith and a pair of touchdowns as he fills in admirably for Michael table. Emmanuel Sanders had his best game and felt like as a saint and they also got some contributions in the ground game as well. But I mean the fact that their defense was also able to get five straight stops there to get it back to Drew Brees and come back to have them keep it rolling was terrific and then of course another double-digit lead blown by the lion's mane. They just cannot quite hang on there. Although they made a valiant effort at the end to make a comeback here and it look it's great to start out hot, but they gotta figure something out before the Saints this felt like a little bit of a gift right for him. Yeah read the Saints did get right and I think Sean Payton understands the pressure that's on him to make sure that he always puts Drew Brees in the right situation the Detroit Lions, it made it a little easier for him. They played a little more Zone open Windows Drew did a great job of getting the ball in bounds of The Playmakers, but this is a ball-control Saints team and it's one that it's explosive, but it's explosive because of the efficiency meaning they get the ball into the hands of The Playmakers those guys. Have a little wiggle and burst they make things happen. And as long as they're able to play that way this Saints team is as dangerous as any team in football. Yeah, and the lion's mane just they have no identity as a team. I don't know what they are. They have physical team. Are they an explosive team? There's just you don't have nothing to hang your hat on. They can't find a way to win games and I look forward to the future and you look at it and say okay. How do you conquer and identity? What do you do? And I almost wonder if there ends up being changes there in Detroit. If it's you know, it's kind of turn the whole page on that era if you would trade Matt Stafford if you're going to be picking up there in the top three or four and get a chance to get a Young quarterback to start completely fresh and which leads to the then the next question and Bucky I'll hit you up on this but you look at some of the older quarterbacks in the league like if Ben Roethlisberger decided not to sure he didn't want to keep going Drew Brees who they just played against their with the Saints if he he moves on. I mean you look at Matt Stafford and for the lack of winning, they've had their he's still as gift. Yep. A thrower is is the risk and I wonder I would almost like to see him for the last part of his career to get an opportunity to be on a team like a pittsburgher be on a team like the Saints wow and see what he can do. It could be something with everybody kind of gets a fresh start. Yeah. I mean, I think the toughest thing with the Detroit Lions is this is a team that is just downtrodden they haven't been able to figure it out on the map Patricia. And this is your three of the Map Pack era and you can talk about having to do so much work based on what he inherited but this was a team that won three out of four times on the Jim Cohen, meaning 3 winning seasons out of the four years that called where was there and they have judged falling off a cliff and I think the thing that is disturbing the Lions have no problem getting leads, but they can't hold on to lease. So there's something that is going on with them. They they just don't know how to win and that goes back to the coach Matt. Patricia has to figure this out and figured out quickly. Yeah. I mean, it's it's a mess down there in Detroit right now. All right, I'll get to my next one here. This was a Sunday night game the Eagles defensive line wage. Like Janet Jackson they were in control. He's going to get taken down but house on a ranch who are like rotating along that defense or front and Ridgeway came over from the last year with the shack and a timeout has taken here. All right. Well, look at this defensive line here for the Philadelphia Eagles. They had that five sacks as a defense for came from the defensive line, and I thought we were talking about this late in the day or actually, I think we might have to talk about this morning how this defensive front especially at the end of the game took over the game. They would heat up they got after Mike mcglinchey that offensive line Trent Williams and it was a collection of guys between sweat Ridgeway got there and was getting pressured genard Avery who they traded for Brandon Graham all those guys generating a lot of Heat against a very physical from wage. I thought against the backs of of the 49ers all their runs came from receivers their explosive plays came on getting I used to bowl. I think you also had Deebo Samuel had to run. I think it'll had To run but the running backs, they really kept them and check. I think they gave up sixty yards against the running backs in this game. So to me, I thought their front played very well. Yeah, when I when I looked at the Eagles, I thought they played a very solid game and I think this is a different style from the Eagles that we're not accustomed to seeing but this is the way that they have to play particularly with no weapons on offense. It has to be about the defense keeping the score down the office taken advantage of opportunities when they get it and it does require a duck be to send to do a little gambling. They went for the two-point conversion early to jump up a tow put the 49ers under pressure and not able to keep that pressure on the Niners. And so this isn't pretty but I think Philadelphia has to get used to seeing this team play like this because they're going to have to play like Rocky Balboa. It won't be a pretty song from the Eagles going forward. That's an interesting analogy and DJ. I know you've got another one that you're going to lay out for us on the aftermath today 3:00 Eastern Time depending on when you are off. Consuming this show you should check that out as well. I'm sure we'll clean it out for you. But you know, like Carson's had a ton of criticism over the course of the first three-plus weeks of this season and rightly so often he just has not been right and I think a lot of people want to you know, talk about that throw that it that wobbler up the sideline to me and indeed we talked about this this morning as well with that angle route throw two miles Sanders and bounced off his shin. That was the worst throw of the game to me but still despite some misfires. He found a way to get his team of Victory yet some some studies and gritty runs in that gate in this game that produced first downs, he found a way to make it work and and you called it right as well my club. She got torched on that final drive for the 49ers as you thought. All right, maybe you know, maybe CJ beathard. It's going to come in here and give the Niners a shot to win this thing that that page. Rush virtually ended the Forty Niners hopes and that final drive and and then I just like back on the Eagles front. I can't believe we're sitting here talking about these receivers again as no name guys and and not want to disrespect them because you know, they they're obviously here they've earned their opportunities and how about Travis full of them taking advantage of an opportunity Carson Wentz saying they only he and fold them rep that play once practice this week. Long touchdown. Grab that was such a key a key play for the Eagles in this Victory and they connected on it. I mean that's that's what it takes when you're a guy that's not getting that many reps. You gotta make sure you take advantage of them. Right and I thought that was really cool and good news, you know DJ Buffy you'll be glad to know that perhaps next week. We're going to see The Return of course walk-ins to the Eagles Conference USA Zone the pride of Southern Miss quiz Watkins, second fastest 40 at the combine. It's going to turn all this wide receiver trouble around. Yeah. The Eagles are also they're missing. Dallas Goddard, they're missing their first round pick Jalen reagor their mission Cal Shaun Geoffrey. They're missing DeSean Jackson, but don't worry Eagles fans, which says quiz Watkins is coming back in all of your problems. Either to be solved. You know, I don't give away the whole analogy but just a little taste of that analogy buck as we get to your next take away. My point on Carson was it's like it's like a shooter who's having a little bit of a slump. So what do they do? You find a way to play great defense you find a way to get rebounds you get steals. You just find other ways to help your team win and Carson's in a little bit of a rut right now. He's lost a little bit of his Mojo a pastor. He's also a little confidence. He had some mechanical things that need to get fixed. But in the meantime, he's finding other ways to help his team win. Yeah, and that's exactly what he needs to do. He needs to embrace that athleticism and physicality Packers game. Once he gets that going I think the rest of it will fall into place. All right. What's the next takeaway book? The Seahawks chalk up another a four-man rush rush looks right side got a man in the endzone reaching up making the catch David Moore. Is he in for the touchdown? He is David morn off the Seahawks put six on the board. The Seattle Seahawks are off to a Ford Aerostar the first time they've been foreign old since the last time they won a Superbowl and I think the interesting part of watching the Seahawks now compared to that old team. They're doing it completely differently. This is about Russell Wilson cooking throwing the ball on the perimeter. He has a number one receiver. That's emerging in DK Metcalf home to go without a lock it Chris Carson is able to put the ball in the end zone as a runner. This Seahawks team is so different because they're really liberal their office and they hope to get a couple of stops each gave them their defense, but Russ is cooking. And as long as he's playing get an MVP level the Seahawks have a chance to win each and every game that they're in. Yeah, and like I was glad that you mentioned Chris Carson getting into the song. On there in the Run game. He done it a couple of times through the air this season but those are his first rushing touchdowns of the Season. He got close to a hundred yards. Just proving that when they need to they can still Pound The Rock in Seattle to fight still letting Russ Cook Out a little bit more concerned about their defense giving up over four hundred yards yet again this season again without Jamal Adams. Not sure when he comes back but there there are some words. They're on that Seahawks defense that they they got to figure out if they want to be real contenders once again in to think of the playoff tournament here in the NFL this season DJing. I don't know one thing one thing I thought about watching all these games we're talking about here is that this whole no preseason no offseason has led to a ton of offense and a ton of points. That's actually really fun to watch. So that's what we get then I'm okay with it. What's the next song? What's your next pick a boy? We got some texas-sized trouble in Houston. Cousins play-action straight in the pocket to the end zone touchdown own flag on the play Stealing brought it in nine yards score in the Vikings lead Thursday 3:16. So this is frustrating in Houston right now. I'm just going to read a couple of things that JJ Watt had to say who was visibly frustrated after the game rightly. So I said we have to do something different. This isn't working something needs to change be different. All I can do is work harder asked about no turnovers. This year is just very frustrating if I had suggestions, I would make them giving up yards and points. He says not going to win many games that way I can control when I control story is we got to stop the run. We got to prevent passing. I mean like it just it sounds like there's just a lack of answers for Houston and on offense look at hasn't been much better, you know, they were in a position to go down there and win this game or get close to winning this game with that will Fuller touchdown that ends up getting taken off. The board do the Bobble as he was going to the ground. It's just it just has not looked right on offense and it's looked downright bad on defense. I mean you have a lot of change right? You have a lot of change office of coordinator trying to figure out how the call the game Bill O'Brien May step back in and take over some of the play-calling duties. You have a new defense coordinator and Anthony Weaver taking over for Romeo Crennel. He is trying to figure out how to coordinate the front end with the back end after being a d line coach. And so with all the change in the coaching ranks. It is playing out on the field and I don't know how talented this team is in charge of the blue-chip talent. JJ Watt is not quite the player that he wants was but they certainly are good enough to have a win on The Ledger at some point. And so they have to get back to basics. They need to make sure defensively they cannot let the ball fall out the head they have to be able to stop the run and force people into a one-dimensional approach until they're able to control the game defensively. It doesn't really matter what they do on offense. Cuz they're always behind the eight-ball while I'm looking at this from the other side of the country here and I'm looking at the Miami Dolphins watching the Houston Texans struggle knowing that they have their first and second-round picks knowing you've got to a tagovailoa off knowing you've got DeVante Parker outside. You've got my kiseki who's going to be a nice emerging tight end was really starting to come on and buck. I'm just sitting there going man. Now your throat jamarr Chase on the other side. Maybe you want to finance you either take the tight end from Florida who has been lighting it up so far this season. Yes, and now I've got two on top of my lower back there and we are dancing with the Miami Dolphins. Yeah. I mean, I think that's something because Bill O'Brien made some moves he took for the right now as opposed to the Future Mortgage away some of the future and now they may not be good enough to cash in right now and then he may have to look and see the Miami Dolphins cash in on some of the opportunities that gave him. It's it's a little bright spot there for the Miami Dolphins. All right. Last one here. Let's go to the Indy Chicago game and Indianapolis defense was dominant snap is back again, of course off. Rush coming over the middle and complain intercepted Blackman's got it inside the tank picks it up to the 15th and 20th of the 22-yard line and the rookie out of Utah Calexico interception and Miller unable to catch that football with the middle. Yeah. This is an Indianapolis Colts defense really playing as well as anyone in the league right? Now, you say the best defense in football right now and it's a combination of some of the things that were missing from the Dallas Cowboys mad ever flushed. It was it was with that Dallas Cowboy team with Rod Marinelli and Company. He's got this cult group as you can see with these highlights. They are sprinting too big football. They play so hard they're very physical. They get past rush inside and get pass rush off the edge and and buck A lot of times when you talk about great defense has it starts against the run. I know we're in a Passing League like to focus on that. But when your longest run you allow in a game of six yards, you make a team very one-dimensional and then they were able to get off the quarterback. Yeah, they are able to get up to quarterback birth. I can't harp enough on what Matt eberflus is done with this defense. They play hard. They run to the ball is a very simple straight-forward concept. They're getting their guys to play fast because there's not a lot of clutter the move to get DeForest Buckner has changed identity of their front line. He controls the tackle to tackle box. They're able to get fresh with four guys. And because they can get pressure they can leave off buddy back in coverage playing more man-to-man than you would think a tampa-2 team would do but the coverage has been outstanding and people can not find the open Windows to complete passes. Just one quick thing to have them reset. We had these sought call from Julie Blackmon the safety out of Utah making that interception off Nick Foles. He credited Frank Reich for preparing that defense for Nick Foles specifically and how this all fence was going to run with Nick Foles as quarterback and clearly that paid off with Frank Frank writes knowledge Of course, what fools can do from their time together in Philly? There's 10 takeaways right there. I feel like this week.

Patriots-Texans Week 11 Preview | Brad Kelly | Patriots Beat with Evan Lazar

"Hey, everybody welcomed into the Patriots beat podcast powered by the ceiling test media podcast Network. I'm Evan was our life today. I am joined by Brad Kelly. One of my favorite guests to have on you can follow him at Brad Kelly 17 on Twitter. I'm sure all of you already do that though and Brad. I wanted a nice view on to talk about Jacoby Myers either wide receiver Guru that I always consult with so I wanted to bring you on to talk about him, but we're going to talk about some of the other young Patriot players as well a little bit of the Texans at the end but Brad, how you doing? Thanks for doing this. I'm doing well. Thanks for having me on it. No problem. And as you can see in Brad's background right there for those that are watching it on the video feed. He's got a Patriots flag off with a d k Metcalf Jersey right underneath it too bad. Then that captures e is not a patriot met captors e it's a Seahawks Metcalf Jersey obviously, but I digress. Yep. That's that's a topic for a different day or not going to crap all over a former first-round pick Patriot wide receiver who could have been DK Metcalf instead. We're going to smile and talk about some positive things wrong with Jacoby Myers and I think my biggest question to you Brad and I'm sure we'll get into the nitty-gritty of it as well. But is this just kind of a blip, you know, a three or four game hot streak here from Coby or are you actually seeing him make strides that could make us think that next year and for the rest of this season, he could be a 1000 yard receiver some day. I would say it's probably somewhere in the middle. He likely isn't going to be like the number one top Target that he's operating as right now for the long term which means you know, but the yard is that is currently putting up. I think I think you said it if you put it over sixteen games it ends up being like thirteen or fourteen hundred yards. I don't think that's going to be sustainable, but I do think as the level of birth. That is have that he's showing is and that what that level is is a very quality complimentary option. And in the in the role that he's fulfilling is really the guy just going to keep the chains keep it all depends on schedule when you need it. When you need to catch use the reliable guy and New England's had a players like that for a very long time and that's the role. I think you feels he's probably never going to be a 3541 yard receiver. Yeah, that's a fair point and I did kind of put a caveat on it. It's obviously that 169 yard game against the Jets is propping everything up but if you take the $169 game out, he's still on Pace for a nine hundred yard season with the other three games that he has been playing at a high level. So that's still a pretty darn good year for wide receiver who was an undrafted a nice guy and quite frankly my myself included a lot of us in training camp or not. Sure who's even going to make the team back in August because he wasn't playing. Guys like damiere Byrd and obviously nikhil and Thursday. Metalman and right on down the line of receivers. Even Isaiah's Uber and Devon Ross were playing More in training camp in Jacobi Myers. Now, there's some of it was a shoulder injury that he had at Lindbergh and held them out is wearing a red non-contact jersey for about a half a week. I would say in practice and then we get into the actual games and he's behind Edelman obviously and that song slot Z receiver role and then Adelman gets hurt and all of a sudden Jacoby Myers is Edelman 2.0 and and that's the guy, you know, I've heard a lot of people try to compare to Kobe to somebody else even though they're not the same body type. It's so hard not to see Julian edelman's around detail and a lot of the things that you cope he's doing cuz he's running a lot of the same routes in the offense that element would be running out. So I guess my my next question to you is do you see a more explosive receiver this year compared to last year? Cuz I feel like his confidence is continuing to grow and that has a dog Him being a little bit more I guess confident in where he's going on the field and not being as hesitant that as a rookie versus in the second season. Yeah, so it's such a lot of things there and especially the element wage person. He's playing the Julian element role. Yeah, so really going forward it's going to be how are they going to coexist assuming that only gets back healthy and where is Jacoby Myers then going to be in the offense. That's kind of give me an interesting thing to monitor as Edelman gets healthy fingers crossed as far as his confidence goes. I think you see I think you saw the explosiveness and he's not a young athlete around like a 460 but he's quick he's detailed as you said and because of that when he was at NC State, he looked like he was playing fast and I think you're seeing more of that now likely just because, you should be in the system in a second-year receiver is always make that year one to year to jump. I think just I think it's like comfortability thing as you mentioned and and the knowledge of the offense. Is it allowing him to play more more o p More freely and now you're seeing the the really the same part that you saw NC State and last year was you were touching it down? Basically, it was like very little yeah, and now that he's picking up at Ommegang this year, but you can see in its realities even a little bit fast a little bit quicker. Probably not a jump and athleticism as much as it's just a jump the year one of your to jump he's here in a lot of receivers. Yeah, exactly. And it's just incredible to watch him. I think he you know, he told us a few weeks ago that Julian Edelman just basically gives him the answers to the test. Right he can just throw on Edelman tape in the in the film room and see him run a corner or see him running over router see him, you know, Juke somebody at the line of scrimmage and his release or something like that and and he just see what he needs to do out there on the field just based off of that and I know he went up against just as Peter is a bunch last last week and I feel like you probably watched the Super Bowl against the Rams because some of the routes he was running and looked exactly like what Edelman did against the Rams and that Super Bowl it's been off. Really fun to see what part of his technique I know you can get into this minutiae. Probably better than most. Do you see what Jacoby that just sets him apart from other guys, let's say it's two things with the footwork and it's impressive because as as everyone knows now, he was a quarterback recruit coming to NC State. He played his freshman year really at quarterback. So he's only been playing the position for about five years, but you see the details in his footwork he's able to he's really loose and flexible guys. They want to get in and out of cuts because of that game ground into them accelerate through them. So part of that is the athleticism but I think the the big thing that you see within and they touched upon this on the broadcast as he really does feel coverage and see coverage like he's still is playing quarterback the way he's able to find voice and in zones six or more into windows work across windows and just really work away from coverage like a quarterback would want a receiver too. I think you see it all over his film. He processes very wage. Prayed and and that's just the reason why is getting open so much and really the reason I think that cam is targeting him so much as because him and Camera cleared on the same page and have her seeing the defense. Yeah, there is I was just watching back of his receptions over the last four games because I'm going to write about Jacoby for this weekend and and the one that really stood out to me, obviously the the big burst Corners those ones are great right to play against the Jets last week against the Ravens, but there was a over route that he ran a 16-yard or against Buffalo where it was Zone coverage in the middle of the field. The first window wasn't open and he worked himself to the second pack window for Cam and just kind of sat down right in it and just was you know really open but then had to adjust back to the ball was a little bit low and away from him and it shows kind of the adjustment the and the ability wage kind of finish low on the ground like that and also understanding. Okay. I'm covered in the first window, but I'm going to be open in the second window. So let me keep working across the field those little things and again, Own and then we obviously know that the separation quickness at the top of the route allows them to get open against man. It's it's been really fun to see cuz we haven't had a Patriots wide receiver quite frankly who is looked this good and kind of broken out since you know, maybe like a guy like a Malcolm Mitchell. I think it's probably the last one that we can hang our hat on a young receiver that really had this type of play in a bowl game stretch. We could talk about Jacoby a lot more probably just a whole entire podcast, but I do want to hit on some of these other young guys are playing really well. I'm going to skip Damien Harris for now. We'll come back to him. Let's talk about Kyle doug because this guy is just one of my favorite players that they've drafted over the last couple of years mainly because of the speed and the physicality that he finally brings to that first and second level of the defense. They needed desperately needed a guy like this or that six foot three two hundred and twenty five pounds. He's basically a modern-day linebacker now for the Patriots, He was special on Sunday night. I mean downright special he and it's interesting because he's out of his played every game on defense, but I think that the previous game is wage was like the season low on stamps, but really when you get to the Ravens, like I think he was basically drafted like with Lamar Jackson and my like when we when we play Lamar Jackson The Galley Patrick Mahomes, we need, Dugger on our defense because as you touched on the size and strength, but also the speed and the speed in space and the way you can use so ranging that second level. There were a few play there was a one played that really stood out actually to play that really stood out in particular against the Ravens won. They ran outside Zone away. He was the the cut back or boo play ourselves Lamar kept it and booted he would have been there for the month and he like wait wait season one doesn't have it sort of flows to the play and Gus Edwards come back and he just lit up dust Edwards and Gus Edwards is six one two hundred thirty eight pound bowling game. All and he put him like they put him like shoulders straight down into the ground. And then the other one he sets The Edge against Nick Boyle who is probably the best blocking tight end in football game sets the as against him and and sheds the block actually puts Nick Boyle on his butt and then tackles marked Ingram wraps him for a gain of one. It was like, wow, this guy can be special particularly agree to run but especially against a team like the Ravens who they have the speed at quarterback. They have the power of running back. Like if you put a a bunch of speed on the field and they keep giving it to go server into marketing. I'm JK Dobbins phone number where you out if you put size in the field the market actually
