What are Chuck Pagano's plans for the Bears defense?
"Now Chuck Pegado he replaces Vic Fazio who went from Chicago to Denver. He is the new defensive coordinator of depth buyers trademark me your thoughts was well. This is the one that this this instigated the article <hes> thinking about Chuck Pagano because you lose Vic Fangio. Who is I think along with Wade Phillips the most most respected affected defensive mind in the game right well bill belichick sort of on an island up there by himself but you know throw in Romeo Coronel is another guy who's respected but we don't really we know what Chuck Pagano is? He had one year defensive coordinator with the Ravens where they finished third in defense with Ray Lewis Ed Reed Terrell suggs and then he went to the the colts and he never really had much town to work with on defense now he's token over a defense that is almost sure to regress to the mean just because they had a sky a high turnover rate loss very few games to injury last year and cannot and fifteen percent of drives with an interception like they did last year especially especially That defense every week to make up for their offense. I felt like an if you're if you're in the situation Pagano. You're going to get blamed from their earliest part of the season. It doesn't go well. Why would I want to take over some for someone who floundered before me you come in and you look on the other hand when you have a chance to work with Cleo Max Akiem Hicks Roquan Smith Dan Danny I mean they're absolutely loaded Jackson Kyle? They are loaded and yet. I think it's a tough spot to go to for for Pagano.

"Joel prob probably Davis. I would think. Yeah. I think Davis. I think Davis is a bit underrated. As a player, I think Josie jewel, and I watched a lot of him last year on tape. He's an effort guy plays hard you'd like him to be a step faster. And I think Josie jewel to me gives you a really good nucleus of inside linebackers and as long as he plays a certain amount of snaps in certain situations. He can be very productive guy. But to me Devin Bush is a three down linebacker and a guy that has great great speeds. So I mean, we'll see Devon Bush guy. Krista Wilkins is still available at Clemson it real big and. Real inside plug into a spot where you're a little thin you Zach Kerr. Vic Fangio at the owners meeting said neither Bush nor Devon white were where roquan Smith was a year ago with Jedi mind tricking, Casey got one of them to motivate them sort of like when he said Vaughn room saying that von Miller could be great Khalil Mack is great. Von Miller could be great the interesting about roquan roquan Smith, and we know what he did in his first year. Right. He didn't even start the last year. He was Georgia against base personnel. They put a bigger linebacker in. And here's a guy that came in and sub packages played probably seventy percent of the snap. So he obviously was a key player. But they wanted to utilize him the right way. So the Broncos on the clock now with four twenty and counting left in terms of time to make that selection. Matt Russell on the cell phone. Just put that down as we get a glimpse into the Bronco Bronco war room..

"To the soil which also shows a little bit of this character. I think it's a heck of a pick of the Buffalo Bills. His impact on the field last year. Houston allowed six point eight yards per play. When he wasn't on the field four point nine when he was now Denver is this where we and this is the decision here for John Elway do they look quarterback. Do they look Haskins potentially? Mel kiper juniors. Latest mock draft says yes, would you expect quarterback here for gender? No. I think is tremendous value on the defensive side of the ball on looking at a guy like Devin Bush got to replace the laws of Brandon Marshall their inside linebacker. I think that Devon Bush is a great place to look I mean, we talked about Devon y DNA sideline sideline guy. Devon Bush only ran a fraction of a second slower into forty than Devon white. Devon white rant four four to Devin Bush ran four four three. So as you can see tremendous athleticism can be three down linebacker. I think that's the direction at the Denver Broncos should go. And if you do if they do perhaps that shows a little bit of faith in Joe flacco who they got an. Most that's a short term type fix, but potentially. It's it's more than. Yeah. I agree with Chris to you look at the head coach fix Fangio last year. He was with the Chicago Bears. They took roquan Smith Devin Bush, very similar player to roquan Smith, and that's a need for this team right now. So poor back surely play, but to be Bush is the best player. And if it's a beat Devon Bush, by the way, the best player available on Mel kiper juniors. Pick a big board as well. He had at number five overall. We are on pick number ten to this point the biggest surprises. No question.

"Makes load up protection for guy like Josh Allen. This is what they should do. I think if white falls that's going to put them to an interesting test. At some point the white net is going to be cast and he won't fall anymore. And I think coming to pick number ten with the Denver Broncos. Drew Elway who drew CHAI Jonah. I I have. I think like he he made just fuck around and go get a quarterback. I don't think. So I read it. I read an article about his Jones over Haskins. I think yeah, he's he's not drafting Haskins. I can tell you that. I read an article that he was very intrigued with the twenty twenty quarterback class, which made me think. Well, he's got flacco. He's got flacco. Perhaps if the tight end falls to him that's a target. I think it's a legit panisse Hopkinson could end up on Denver. But in this current situation. There's no way. I mean, what are the Broncos need? They've lost some linebackers. They need to get. Definitely light. I I don't see it's hard to see Devon white falling past like ten eleven. So I'll have them snag Devon white. I do think he's you know. You watched LSU live Koby. I watched a couple of hours. He's an absolute east. He reminds me a little definitely being paid roquan Smith is that is that a fair comparison comparison, he's a he's an animal. I think it'll be a beast. Wherever you lands Koby. Okay. I'm gonna stick to my my on the clock. I'm gonna stick to my projection. Here do it because this is in state guy whole state loves them. Oh, and I think you know, they hired Marvin Lewis was code was was announcing the af the spring one of the other reasons maybe they went under. Why are you crowbar and all this? But I'm gonna say they stay in state and any Dalton's done after the year give me Dwayne Haskins and Ohio states quarterback to the Cincinnati Bank. Don't under contract for one more year two thousand nineteen again, he'll be on the reds. We have a new coach. Yeah, we do and that and they didn't extend on so things add up. I I am complete lockstep with you. I think Haskins ends up on these Cincinnati Bengals please the fans to because they've been a lot too. You know, be gray about it would be a great PR move. Although I did read a very hilarious thing about Wayne Haskins that he he tested out on top of having the what are we calling my my I metric. Do we the was the K test? The k the K test. I think so all right. We'll go with the K on top of having a very low k test score. He also apparently had the worst body composition. According to NFL, Tom Pell. Hello, sarah. Who the fuck is Wayne asking had the worst body composition testing amongst quarterbacks at the combine. Okay. Break that down for me. Then I think they're saying he's he's chunky and slow..

"I play with his father Atlanta, nineteen ninety six ninety seven ninety five one of those. His father. This kid has all his father's. Ability. He had better football football smarts off the charts. But is that an important position, though Lewis that that would be my my question, you know, what a great question the game things. Dan, the game as far as how people were attacking you on offense has become critical had great athletes smart athletes in the middle of the field at linebacker that say that's why roquan Smith drafted as high as he got by last year. That's why it's gotta go top shifts. That's like different Bush is going to go top ten some Michigan this year. You better be able to defend teams that can attack with tighter the middle of the field where you're not allowed to hit anybody for some great athletes who teams you up between the numbers right down the field. I down those down. How New England has made the best league. Look silly. They started doing it years ago with Gartner. Then does they still do it? Now. Now, they just change their flaws in a little bit has got older. They started sparring backs. That's birkhead James the guys who catch passes over and over again going. How's Chris doing? This has always been a house ahead of the curve. You better start catching up as far as getting athletes in the middle of the field. Middle linebacker, either not call with physicians anymore. They're just not don't have them. Stop anybody in the NFL. Maybe that's what the league one that kind of Hugh Hewitt that way as a as a team, they're not gonna stop anyone. That's why you're seeing more and more. Guys, play defense like that combat something hybrid Titus better have been like. Why did Clinton Nelson go with high tea did to the Annapolis last year? Well, more teams are looking for Fletcher. Cox Donald why. Because all the best quarterback says it me to tackle. If I ever because the tackle that sort of just absolutely just me right up the cliff to play like Aaron Fletcher that could best rattling getting off of. Well, the only way you can bet that's causing Donald is quitting Nelson game. Then it's not just about. Well, I gotta have the corner in a left tackle at a pass rusher. That at that. I'm good find any old skiff officers, deployed gardens. It's not like that anymore. And that's why positional change there's more. And if you're not with that. He's not you're not going to be playing. And ultimately in the best teams are doing the Team New England's been doing is now. Yeah, I end a scout. Who told me last year that Nelson would he thought was the best player in the draft. And that's why when the took him I said, you know, what they got a guy that going to be there ten years. He's going to be an all pro. And he's he plays with an attitude, and you know, he's he's ready for the challenge. And he lived up to the hype is well, we're talking to Louis Riddick from ESPN only you with this Louis the potential top fifteen pick who makes you nervous. Oh boy. Probably say the one that makes me nervous, the boast Montesquieu from the state and not necessarily because obviously because you know, there there's some there's some concerned about, you know. His health from the heart condition. That's you know, that information is out there, you know. But Dr teams that will take the ball teams that won't be concerned about it that it's that it's a deal that he can play with and teams are not that concerned. Another say we won't want to invest. Doing past that though, despite the fact that he is absolute in phenomenon from that standpoint is Paul on as long as fast. The one for four. They're not supposed to do that. One of those watch dome is still doesn't always look like combine workouts workout at those guys. Always scared me. About somebody. You can go maybe in the top ten and who may have the health concern? That's a tricky one for me. That's one of the guys that in Ireland. Remember his name on Thursday night. Because I'm sure you'll if his name starts sliding insider will start getting Khris about is it the health concern is the concern that maybe has played as a match up with his measurable. So he's the one that was scared. Most great stuff. Lewis have fun in Nashville till the boys we set a low, and we appreciate your time. As always that's thanks a lot. That's Louis Riddick. ESPN NFL analyst. I think he likes to Wayne asking just a little bit there. It's a little bit of a warm take their for Louis Riddick. ESPN's coverage. Live from Nashville seven rounds. Thursday night, Trey wingo, Mel kiper and builder McFarland on the ESPN main set ESPN two the main sent Friday night and Saturday they have their coverage throughout the weekend as well.

"So what I mean is. What I love about the draft. It tells us about one positional value and a lot of that. It's after the first round because you see a lot of best player available. Then you talk about team needs. But it tells you about strategy. It tells you about how we view positions, for example, a guy last week who didn't I don't think we ended up mocking him in the first, and I felt awful about it is Dexter Lawrence out of Clemson who I think seven years ago could have been drafted in the top ten honestly. But because of the way offense is played now. Because of the way defense is played you know, he's not going to be on the field enough. I think to be drafted as high as he would have in the past or positional versatility right now like because defensive play so much nickel and dime. You need guys DB's you can play multiple positions. You can do a lot of different things. Offensive line, right? Because of the nature of passing games left. Tackle, right. Tackle aren't. I think there's the delta between a value between those missions has changed. So I guess I just had a bunch of things. But I want to ask you. In one type of defense a little bit with you, which is sort of your bread and butter what characteristics? Are you looking for now in defensive players? I mentioned a few of the ones I think that are taking that maybe people didn't I guess have evolved. Because of the way the NFL is this. This is a great great question one. We could do an entire podcast alone. The. Yeah, the game has changed a ton it like the way in which teams attack both offense and defensively has changed. Let's say ten fifteen years ago. Okay. Middle linebacker safety were positions that were after thoughts because you thought you know, as long as I have good corners and good outside players and good pass rushers. I'm good. You can find them. You know, you don't ever draft middle linebackers high. You don't have to pay safeties. Because these are the guys who are interchangeable you can find them bargain-basement guys sitting out there on the street late rounds free agent types because you just need corners, and you need. Pass rushes. Well, the game has changed. Why? Because the rules have changed the rules are set up now. So where there is no more. There is no more enforcing an intimidating players in the middle of the field anymore. So teams attack in the middle that field with speed and versatility putting wide receivers. Putting hybrid tight ends in a number two number three spot as far as wide receivers. How how you line them up in attacking between the number. So what do you need? Now, you need middle linebackers, and you need safeties inside linebackers and safeties and nickel corners nickel safeties who can run who can cover who can tackle. And those positions now have increased in terms of importance. That's why you see those those positions being drafted higher and higher in order to counter what is going on offense. Because of the way the rules are. So you're seeing guys, you know, like roquan Smith year ago, you're seeing guys like Devon Bush Devon white who are going to go. Hi, ten audibly because these guys can stop the run, but more. Importantly, they are fast, and they can cover that area between the numbers. That's why safeties are at a premium. That's why guys like Tyron Matthew who's really six position player. We're not talking about the draft. Now, we're talking about free agency..

"All right. The lions. Where would you go? I got a lot of need because the line. But I'm gonna go into white the linebacker out a few who we last crying at the NFL comeback because he ran a four four two of. He's amazing. He's a great athlete. I saw him play a lot this year. He's got a lot of poppies really violent. And the thing about him that Matt Patricia probably would like, then he's still learning the position he was running back coming out of high school shut up to north Webster parish in northern Louisiana. He was running back of high school. So you only played linebacker for few years. You've got a lot more going game. But you've got this physical specimen who as violent has fairly decent instincts. He still me. But those are the sort of thing you gotta learn with reps. Right. And something like that. He's a pretty good. If phone that's her in Detroit plan for that coach. This seems like a good fit for Detroit right now. So the Devon's Deadlight and Devin Bush. Yeah, I've been hearing all it's been all across the board as to who will go. I I to have. Slight preference for Deb and white. It might just be the horse thing. But I I love the way. He I think they're both really good. And also really modern, you know, like, it's sort of like the roquan Smith pick last year, Chicago like to have a linebacker who can keep up with running backs who can drop into coverage you can fly across the field who can sniff out play action is so valuable in today's NFL and white to me the dynasty fences a ways to go. And he's the guy you you build around. I do love that pick. Okay. So Buffalo's next and this an interesting one because there's a I praised their free agency. Earlier liked what they did. I was thinking about taking an offense of linemen here, which was a huge issue last year. But they did add on the offensive line. We talked about that during free agency. They added John Brown, called Beasley some pass catchers for Josh. And I still think they need to both to that area. But I am going to go edge rusher, I'm gonna go, and this might be a little rich for some people's blood. I'm gonna go Brian burns here. Oh, I'm sure he's a fine young man, but two hundred and thirty five pounds, man. But You you know, know hey. seen? He's little so don't. Who's who's the last guy? That's been successful restaurant pass it. That's how is he bigger than Leonard Floyd or smaller than later Floyd. Not that letter for business. Great success. But. So Brian burns. Yeah. He's very small and that's going to be the the rap on him. He's a pass rusher out of FSU. And he was he put up excellent numbers at the combine. But he didn't play like his size to me. If that makes sense, I realize his frame is he's got a bulk up, but he wins in all positions. He went inside outside. He plays with so much explosion and power. He's not just he's going to be labeled as just a speed guy. And I really don't think he's just speak guy and a really think. He could still had some moves to his repertoire, but I really think he has a much higher ceiling than any of the other addresses left Arkansas either they've got a guy who's sort of not quite model because Jerry was built differently. But like, he's not, you know, the typical, you know, six foot five two hundred sixty five pound defensive end that you'd want position and they meant hassle success with them. So I can see the looking at Brian bars and be like, oh, we can make this work and he's any fast. He's got he's got production. We can make this work. All right. Who's Denver taking? So I'm John Elway here. I with mother take a quarterback having. That's that's you know, that's what I just like to compile evac, but men out got Joe flacco. Now, we're set, you know with. I mean, he's best football is a head of accounting. So I gotta give somebody throats to and I'm gonna probably take TJ Hopkinson. Well, not probably I'm going to TV Hopkinson..
NBA Draft 2019: Latest 1st-Round Order, Predictions
"And ladies and gentlemen, we have a new mock draft out Mel kiper Jr's three point. Oh is here with us. And we are looking forward to the draft. Mel will join us in just about an hour to talk about the new mock draft. But there have been some changes in the draft specifically one less quarterback. Now going in the first round then in mel's two point oh mock draft. So we have four in the two point oh mock draft with Daniel Jones from Duke rounding out of the last pick of the draft to the patriots in the first round of thirty two. There are only three quarterbacks now in the first round, according to mel's latest mock. And obviously a retirement might be a big reason why and the quarterbacks have changed as well. Right. As far as where they're they're going. Well, Cuyler he still has Tyler going number one derozan. Well in his last draft Cuyler going number thirteen to the dolphins. So now and this draft he hasn't going number one. He had. Dwayne Haskins going number six at a giant Kyle Murray. Going number thirteen to the to the dolphins. Drew lock going fifteen to the Redskins and Daniel Jones going thirty two to the patriots. So as you mentioned Daniel Jones now out of the first round, according to the latest mock draft by Mel kiper, just three quarterbacks Murray number one. The main says Dwayne Haskins at number six, and you start to hear reports that the giants may go defense was six and then was seventeen go quarterback. But right now twain Haskins at six and then drew lock sitting there at number thirteen for the dolphins. Does the only three quarterbacks in this latest first round. Yeah. Going to be very interesting because we know what the giants listen one thing. Dave Gettleman has made very clear he does not feel beholden to tell us his plan. And so I don't feel overly beholden to believe. A lot of what we're hearing coming out of the giants can't because if you've got a guy who's basic messages trust me, I got this. Well, then we understand he doesn't feel like he has to tell us the truth. So as we hear these things. Coming out. We also understand this time of year is about deception to an extent it's trying to manipulate the draft order trying to manipulate the opinions of certain players. So that you can try and put yourself in the best position to get the guys you ultimately want. So it makes it difficult to try and read the tea leaves it is although I have to say on cattlemans behalf. He said all of last spring saquon Barkley is a generational talent with the second overall pick. And that's where he went. Look, I think we all agreed. There has to be a quarterback in the giants future. Whether it's at six or seventeen trade now Cleveland, but it would not surprise me in the least if Dave Gettleman waited until the second or third round to take a quarterback this Dave Gettleman, he created that created, but he he made the term a more of a vernacular in the NFL draft hog molly's when he was the GM of the Carolina Panthers. He loves the big guys to hog mollies. And let's be honest. This draft is going to be decided outside of Kyla Murray. More than anything else about the big defensive lineman in this draft. The hog Molly is on the defensive side of the ball. So depending on your draft grades for your quarterbacks you could take one of those at six and then a quarterback at seventeen it all depends again on your on your draft great. If twain Haskins is highest on the board and draft grades. You don't pass that up. If you have a Dwayne Haskins drew lock. And whatever other quarterback equal in grades. You know, maybe use that seventeen pick baby can trade it up somehow to get one of those guys as I said, this always comes down to grades. Do. You have a choice amongst grades. Are you close enough in quarterbacks where if you don't get one you try and get the other? But we'll see we'll see, you know, one of the biggest changes in from the last two this for Mel was they had the patriots taken Daniel Jones a quarterback, and this one I serve Smith junior the tight end from Alabama going, and that would not be shocking at all you have really three out of the top tight end Hopkinson the kid from Iowa teammate, Noah Fant, and then Smith junior all three likely to go in the first round a three first round tight end to on the same team come on. And what would that tell you as we saw? The patriots jump into the first round and take a running back and Sony Michelle at the end of that. And now to see in the next year three tight ends going. We've talked about this. However, you want to split it. Last year were Quinton Nelson. Went in the top ten in the draft as an offensive guard. We saw roquan Smith going the top ten as a middle linebacker. The middle of the field is worthy. NFL is being built right now. And other teams are starting to catch up to what the patriots have done for years. The way that we've seen teams export that specific area and three tight ends in the first round would hammer that home not denying that. They are guys that are certainly probably more talented than usual tight end groups. We're used to seeing but it's also about value. It's why you see running back taking it to overall by the giants last year. I mean, the other thing is I think they're more interior linemen in this first round then quarterbacks right? Like, a not tackles guards and centers. There are more of those according to males latest mock than there are actual quarterbacks being taken which would be very unusual. So the top five in this new draft that Mel kiper put out is Kylie Murray. Number one of the cardinals Nick both the D N number two to the forty Niners. Number three. Josh Allen the outside backing backer pass rusher going to the jet number four Cornyn Williams. To the raiders and number five guy making a pretty big jump. Devon white going to Tampa Bay at five in the last mock draft he was number eleven to the Bengals now in mel's draft. He is sitting at number five number six twain Haskins seven Joon Taylor. The offense attack from Florida going to Jacksonville sweat, the D N going to the lions at eight Sean, Gary the D N going into the bills from Michigan and TJ Hopkinson. The tight end going to the Broncos at number ten. Here's here's what I wanted to talk to Mel about and one of the issues that I have laid on me big fella with with this draft comes, you know, some some point and one of them is there are few prospects in new first round projection who are making their debuts because of their combine performances. There are four guys who have jumped into mel's first round who weren't out there before again based on the combine combine performances. I don't understand that. I don't I don't understand that. If you wanna say. You looked at the combine to go back and look at tape of them. But to say, they're combine performance jumped them up that doesn't compute to me. Well, I think that's I think that's the assumption though, is because of their performance you went back and look and that. That's fair. That's why I want to ask them. How did this? Make you go back and study them more. Because if you're just basing things off the combine I got a real issue with that. Yeah. I I don't think you would do that or teams. But at the same time, you look at the positions of the majority of the players that would be involved in that. And I think this could be true for teams as well. It's interior offense. It is right. Three interior offensive linemen Terry McLaren the wide receiver, but when it comes to interior offensive lineman. You wanna talk about an area where the scouting grossly lags behind to actually great and overall draft. It's a difficult area for a lot of people to see and understand because you don't have the benefit of a lot of stats. You don't have the benefit of even the combine members necessarily always translating to production. So when those guys go and they paying and they flag in the model somewhere for what they do at the combine. And then you go back and spend some more time looking at a guy like Lindstrom who wasn't going to be a big name. He wasn't like, you know, Gary bradberry from North Carolina State won the Remington award this year. Like that guy was a stud Boston College was a middling. Okay. ACC team this year. So Lindstrom wasn't getting the credit. He deserved even being as good as he is. So you go back now, and even these NFL teams, maybe we're late to the party on some of these guys all of a sudden start giving them an extra. That's why I want to ask I just wanna make sure with Mel that because I'm just reading from the combine performance, and again, let's put a name. To those you mentioned McLaren the wide receiver who is one of the others. Chris Lynch reminder, you just mentioned from Boston College now. Number twenty one to Seattle Eric McCoy interior linemen going number twenty two to Baltimore. Right and the Garrett bradberry. The Senator from North Carolina State who is you mentioned one the Remington award is the best center in the country number thirty one to the LA Rams where they have an aging center, and John John Sullivan. And that was that was one of the things have been saying for the Rams the last couple of years that dynasties been built on the interior. If you land a guy like that good, Lord or you winning out it is. So we'll see how that plays out. Now, the one thing that I find interesting he he has drew lock the third quarterback Mel dozen his latest mock going thirteen in Miami. I'm telling you don't take out Denver at ten in Cincinnati of eleven in play for quarterbacks. I mean. Yeah. Denver made the play for Joe flacco. But John Elway has messed this up a couple of times with all due respect. I mean, that's just outside of getting Peyton Manning. He has not figured out the quarterback spot there at ten they might be in play for quarterback. And you have Andy Dalton with his situation with the Bengals and his contract situation. I, you know, I think that there's a really good chance that they could be in play with a quarterback there, by the way, by the way, Mel kiper Jr's mock draft not the biggest item related to the draft this week. That will have news for you guys. What more on that coming up later? This week

"Or we don't learn from our mistakes and we stay mired in mediocrity. Correct. Tommy's in here. So Vic Fangio is out. Nick has been a fantastic coach in this league for a long time. And he's finally getting an opportunity to run his own program. I couldn't be happier for him. I think he's deserving of this opportunity and he finds himself in a good spot. You go to to Denver and you get an opportunity to coordinate a defense. It's got you know, von Miller, Shane Ray, kid, Bradley Chubb, who's a rookie this year out of NC state. You've got an all pro cornerback and Chris. Yeah. But I mean you, but you also have Gary kubiak who is a former Super Bowl winning head coach. Who's now I guess going to take over their offense. I think it's a good setup in Denver. But there's no question they have to figure out their quarterback situation. It is something that John Elway has failed to do. But look I thought that Vick could find himself in a very good situation. Much in the way that men Nagy found himself in a good situation where MAC could take care of the offense. Basically look look at Vic Fangio and say, here's the keys to the west wing in this building. I win come over there until you ask me, or if you need me to come over there, and do whatever it is. But you're almost an assistant head coach in charge of the defense. I'll let you do your thing. Well in Denver now, I think you've got the similar thing. I think he got Vick. Who's completely in charge of that defense? It's got a lot of potential who's going to hire. No, see or Gary nosy that he can look to and say, Gary you've seen this you've done this all you can call you. I think it's a great. Setup for victim in Denver. I think it sets up for him. Lot of coaches walk into situations where the deck is stacked against them. Because of I mean, you're looking for new coach and of instances because you've had a run of bad luck. Or you haven't been very good. I think he finds himself in a situation in Denver where he could succeed. So I'm happy for. Yeah. I was reading about some of the candidates that I saw that when Greg Williams went to Washington he was in demand. And the Washington people said we will not have anything to do with the defense. It's all you, you do it ever it is you want you autonomy. So who to the bears higher? I don't know Donna tells in their building I think ED's contract is up. I think it would be a nice segue to go from Vic Fangio's before he has. And he's been in the league forever. And but but maybe Vic decides he wants to take with him. I think you're gonna have you're gonna have your pick of the litter. You tell me if you're a defensive coordinator. Okay. And you're in search of new work a new job. I mean what open defensive coordinator position. Are you going to sign up for I oh, by the way, Khalil Mack Akeem Hex Leonard Floyd, Eddie Goldman, Danny trevathan roquan Smith. Kyle fuller prince amukamara any Jackson they're all under contract. You wanna come and be RDC? I probably walk from wherever you are. Right now. It's take that interview if you're asked so I think they're going to have I don't know who it will be. But I think they're going to have their pick of the litter. Yeah. I would think name who you want and those guys are going to be I mean be fit with Matt too. I mean, there was a natural. I think Vic Fangio probably wasn't. I don't know Vick. I've never met Vic. But I think there was a natural comfort with Vic Pena's -ccomplish this. He was with no feeling of having to usurp in any way, the power of the head coach Matt Nagy who's a young first time head coach you got to find someone who can come in and segue into that situation with a similar approach. Like he's Rex Ryan that guy can Rex come here. Rex had a good run as a defense corner is Rex and would come here, and and suck the oxygen out of the room. Correct. So I think it's good. I I think they're in good good shape. I we've talked about this last few days on our show. They're better off losing Vic with the personnel. They have on defense, and they are losing matters the offensive minded this coach, and what he means to that young quarterbacks of whatever reason you lost Matt Nagy? It would be a bigger shot to this team again because of the importance of the quarterback head coach slash offensive coordinator relationship. Right. You've got so much talent on the defensive side of the ball on a minimize what Vic men to that team. I've got a pretty strong feeling. This is going to be a good defense for years to come. Now. I say that. And look Buddy Ryan had the horses to run with. But when buddy left, I don't I mean, and there was probably some things you lost Wilbur Marshall to free agency. Right. Some other issues guys got a little bit older. But that defense probably fewer points the next year under Vince Tobin than they did under buddy. Okay. So there you go. But over the long run you still probably with no disrespect meant to vent events. You probably missed him out. So I I think that this is at the professional level. What's most important is? It's you have quality players coaching ultimate and see the jockey carry the horse across the finish. Exactly. It's well said show me a great coach. I'll show you coach we great players or good players Guido. And we'll Matt as a question for us. Hey, Guido, what's up sparky guys? How are you? Good. What's up? Good. Good. So I was wondering and this just makes that bears laws hurt just a little bit more. You know, how impatient. These NFL guys are and they want to get a coach on their books. Real quick. You think if that the bears would have won the game and knowing everything baby Vic Fangio probably wouldn't have got the job because he's still be coaching. What do you think about that? I don't necessarily can't connect those dots directly. Great. Oh because they could've still hired. Vic couldn't they have. I don't know. Exactly the rules. You can't hire him. But they could have had a handshake. You could have come to an agreement that when you announced I guess you do announced the hiring when you ultimately exit the postseason. Yes. I mean, if you're the guy I don't think that thanks listen. It's a good point. But I don't think ultimately, I think we try to blame Cody parkey for Vic Fangio go there. I don't think that's the case. Do you believe Cody parkey speaking of that now? It's gonna take. I don't know. How you do it? I don't know how they coexist. I don't know how he handles the situation. I don't know how I don't know. I don't know how the team kind of. I think all the guys in that locker room handled it as well as they could that they were great. And they were gracious in Bobby Massie, and everyone who spoke on his behalf. I thought that was very classy. But I heard you guys talking about it. You saw the situation how it all happened with with Blair Walsh. Right. I mean, the try to bring him back and rehab that. So. Look, here's the deal. You made the mistake given him a a cap restrictive contract with no pun intended. You made getting rid of him painful fiscally. But you can't you can't turn one mistake into two by not getting rid of the right thing to do is to move on. And find somebody for a very inexpensive price and go forward. You don't wanna make a second mistake keeping him because you don't want to get nothing for him at three and a half million. I think you have to move on. I just do. I don't think he can be your kicker throw you another name Jack del Rio. Yeah. I like Jack Jack did a nice job on Twitter. Yeah. Jack Jack did a defensive coordinator. Sure. Marvin lewis. He's a good defensive coordinator as well. That's sure he wants to go back to do that. Jack may be more willing to do that the Marvin Marvin was head coach for fifteen or sixteen years Wilkes. Yes. Steve Wilks probably wants to get right back on the horse. So to speak get that bad taste out of his mouth. He had success in Carolina. A lot of people thought the world of him. Again, I think you're going to have your choice of guys. Are you unhappy about Vic leaving in some respects? Yeah. Because you don't want to lose him. But you happy for Vic because Vikas toiled as I said in this industry for a long Vick was coaching linebackers in New Orleans during that stretch, people don't don't remember this. But he was the linebackers coach New Orleans when they had Rickey Jackson von Johnson, Pat swilling and Sam mills that group that that was one of the best four sums of linebackers in the history of the game released modern history of the game. So when he was in San Francisco, he didn't San Francisco a lot of the same things as he did here. I mean, he's he deserves a chance go out there and run his own program. He's paid his dues any chance foxy would wanna come back is the DC. I don't think he comes here. I think John would be open to I think he's enjoying what he's doing. I think he was an opportunity for him to catch his breath as well. He's been a head coach for what sixteen years or something. Like that prior to being let go this off season. I don't know he meets coaches, are you know, you were a coach it's tough to get it out of your blood is you know, I wouldn't rule it out that John will go back to be a DC somewhere. I don't think he's panicking. I mean, he was still still getting paid this year. Yes. So we call those golden parachutes. But now, we don't. But I think I think there's a chance he may want to get back in the game. Darnold, last one. Do you think Jordan Howard is wearing a bears uniform twenty nineteenth kicks off? I think they're going to try to move him. I don't know what they'll get for him. And I say that with all respect to what he's provided his first year in this league here in Chicago. He was thirteen hundred yard rusher is second-leg us an eleven hundred yard rusher. And last year this past nine hundred yards. He didn't get the touches. And they really weren't as efficient running the football as they have in the past said, a nice run here in Chicago. Yeah, he just doesn't. And I didn't think when when they came in. I I never thought he was the right fit with what to do doesn't mean. You don't think he's a good player? You just he is he doesn't fit totally into the system that you're trying to run it doesn't maximizes system or the efficiency that can come from the system. So look, I don't know. I don't know that you cutting because he's not making a ton of money. He's on his first contract. He was a fifth round picks. You try to trailing. What are you gonna get for? And he was a fifth round pick overall might get a fifth. You may. I mean, I think they'll try to dealing or conditional pick. So if I had to put my money down at my money would be on the fact that he wouldn't be with this team next year. But again, I don't say that with kind of like get the hell outta here in my heart. I appreciate what he provided for this team. He's just. You know, you run a vertical passing attack? You don't want me in your offense. Do you know what I'm saying you run more of a gimmicky side to side. I want Kareem hunt without the baggage that guy who doesn't or Alvin Kamara can find those guys they can find those guys in third round. I'm Phillip Lynes. Lease is going to the Pro Bowl this year. He was an undrafted free agent for Denver. So fine guys that can can be two dimensional instead of the one dimension, which is purely running the football. And look it's not as if they ever said, hey, we're gonna load you up and give it to you twenty plus times a game consistently. Just wasn't what are they did? So that's why you saw some of Tai Kwon, Mazalan and Benny Cunningham because as marginally better as they may be as receivers, and I thought Jordan improved himself as a receiver out of the backfield this year, but one of the things for you real fast. When the football is stripped out, Anthony Miller's hands officials calling it incomplete. Bill belichick. Brought. That showed that play the his team the other day. It's said that's why I tell you to pick up every loose ball. It'll be coaching point for every team in the league. But if you look at the film, the whistles blown in the official is emphatically sing signaling incomplete pass and he's five feet from the football. I understand. Why guys didn't do it going forward? Will they change your approach a little bit?.

"Zakar number-one option. And if you get a chance to go back and look at it the way he diagram that want a video studies. You can you know, what he was talking about. And you know, you you wanna make sure that your guys hit the guy hit the title off the line where the tight end out drew shake take him off his route a little bit and roquan Smith is going to be key roquan Smith, and Danny trevathan trying to shut down this guy today all these percentages and all these catches were talking about happen. When Carson Winston him. He was Carson Wentz is looking for as the majority of the catches in the game was setting the tidy in reception record at that time one hundred sixty eight I think this year froze doesn't look for him. I not as much. No, he looks downfield. It his ride receivers and Jeffries in particular. Yeah. You understand because he can throw high. Go get that much of a necessity, especially if they're gonna play that talion by the tackle were you just put your def- defensive end. They're like in a wide nine and both him SE your pass rushing. Were you knock him off that timing in that route? Then the quarterback has three seconds to throw the ball. He doesn't have time to get that route done. Yeah. That's all the very first time when he broke it down with George kill the tight end for San Francisco, and they had they had guys like you had Dion Bush lined up there. But you had Leonard Floyd who hit him off the line of scrimmage, and you had roquan Smith when he got off the line of scrimmage was real quad right there. And when he goes to Turner's Dion Bush, right? They're defending him because they knew that George kettle, obviously, the number one option for San Francisco talked about a dirty. I said are these morons really gonna wanna one block Khalil Mack with TAC? Tackles. Yeah. Which means and that means they're counting on the tackle getting it done. So the tight end doesn't have to help him. So the tide in can get out in the pattern. Right. Chip in him. Yeah. Good luck. Yeah. There's no doubt. Good luck. You ought to do that. That's fine. Khalil Mack chasing down Nick foles. Once he gets passed Johnson. LA Johnson has been a Pro Bowl corn. You know, a tackle in the National Football League. So we'll see how he is today. I don't care how much of a pro bowler. You are your three toed slow. You ain't going to be able to keep up with the speed of Khalil Mack. And when you try that means you're back on your heels while he's gonna put his hand under, you know. Right there where you give somebody you start Panin owner chest. They just push him back into the quarterback. Bull. Roy said only works when the guys worried about you, go run around him, and he's back on his heels running back as fast as you can where you just help him with that borax gives a little faster did a quarterback you're talking about Khalil Mack. And then maybe single team Sal paolantonio from ESPN he joined the guys Waddle and Silvy the other day, and when he was with wildlands, Sylvie he said that Matt could definitely ruined the eagles day. Listen, he got a block Khalil Mack is the biggest story in the NFL. This year has been Khalil Mack. Khalil Mack going from the raiders to the dares. Transformed. The bears completely transformed the whole conference it transformed the NFL. And I I I watched the eagles all the time. Make the same mistake. They don't give their offensive tackles help. They wind up putting their quarterbacks at risk and Khalil Mack. If they don't give if they don't if they don't give Jason Peters help. Because I think what they're gonna do with Fangio's gonna do is lying back up on. Peter's eaters is older. He's had an up and down year. He's been hurt. Missed the end of the season last year. If they if they don't give Peter's help MAC will ruin the day for Nick fall. So they'll loosen the night pal. Tony on he says that the eagles have a tendency of just letting their tackles go now you've got Jason Peters on the left side at lane Johnson on the right side. Now in there. You know in years past they were they were all pro tackle. You know, what this speaks when they've got Carson Wentz back there. Who's got a scape ability? Or maybe leave that tackle one on one knowing that he might get beat. But Carson Wentz has that capability. Right. And and extending the play as his big plays in it. Yeah. Like, I said genius coach my is the play. He called didn't work cornerback extended and made a play who should get the credit. Yeah, they all head coaching jobs. What a great play caller. My. But here's one Jay talking about everybody know realize foles has has hurt ribs, isn't it legal to hit him in still hit? Now. I it is boy that's a good thing. You take the shoulder and just put it you take your shoulder plan to run into the ribs still legal to hit him in the ribs. Fred even if it's a fifteen yard penalty. Was your shoulder, and you know, as long as you don't hit them late can't hit him lane. As long as you. Don't slap them in the face or listen last night. I was telling the guys upstairs last night. There were two facemask penalty the defense against the quarterbacks that didn't go get didn't get called up. And oh, you can't do that. Got away with. They did Steve mongo McMichael me up, Freddie. The week. Come back. Only penalty gives you rip the face mask off his helmet. They were pretty close. Then is and of his heads. It's still in the helmet. When you're please go down Mitchell. Go down we come back. It's time for mongo's mad. It's been awhile since has done a man up for a playoff game. So we'll have that we come back rent here at ESPN one thousand needle time. Bears.

"Available being able to be on the field being healthy being durable. All that is a huge huge factor. OB and I were talking about this during the break camp stepped out so happy to put you on the spot here who what percentage of the plays. Do you think that what linebacker? Do you think had the most who was on the field? The most this year for the bears tracing and he should have made the Pro Bowl nine ninety three point seven percent of the plays. Danny trevathan was out there who do you think was second Adrian Adrian was integral. Yes. But of the linebackers who would you say second. Well, obviously, you would have to be roquan Smith. That's roquan Smith played eighty three and a half percent of the plays this year. I mean talking for a guy was holding out and started the year slow. I think he didn't even play half the games half the place against Green Bay. That's that's an impressive rookie season question, which I mentioned to Mark. And you Danny defensively it's great defensive in like. We know a couple of the big names who you think was the most underrated player on the bears defense issue. So far. Obviously Danny trevathan won a Super Bowl in Denver. He's been great the entire career here. He's been great. But Adrian, ammos doesn't get any love. It's been great because we are not giving a big place and Eddie Goldman has has been under the radar but here's clubs to pocket all your game Hicks. Don't you agree? The those. There's no question about it. But the guy that I see as a matter of fact, one of the super pluses defensively our defensive line there fine cornerback says stepped up big time. But I'm telling you what cans recant Smith. And Danny trevathan those two guys at linebacker. They're everywhere, Dan. I don't care if it's a pass around these guys if they're not making a tackle they're following up there right there. Those guys have been terrific all year, especially Danny trevathan Khalil Mack. Seventy one point eight percent of plays. And of course, the ankle injury was a huge detriment. I mean, they don't they don't. They don't lose. You wouldn't think the dolphins game? Right. If he's actually able to play probably the same thing with the with the patriots game, but wasn't able to rush the it and they had to sit them, and which was the right move, by the way that they ended up dead at a paying off for him. Oh, there's there's some funny there. They had him dropping back in pass the he had. No, he had no power. You know, Dr. Well, if you got a bad ankle, and you're and you're a defensive back or sub you got a bad ankle, your you eight play pal, right? They shouldn't have had him out there. All right. You shouldn't apply. That's my point. Yeah. Yeah. No doubt. All right. Quick time. I will get you in the news. And we're going to get an update on the eagles from Ed Bankin who cover the team for TV k y w out in Philly. That's after the six thirty news on seven twenty WGN tomorrow night..

"Progresive dot com. The Texans were driving down twenty one the nothing. Fourth quarter said the colts Jonathan they looked like they were about to score a touchdown. But it seems that the Texans might have fumbled the ball into the end zone. It went out of bounds. If that happens that's colts spa. Boy, I mean could things get any worse for the Texans right now. It looks like they're about the score in that's possibly wiped off the board. Any would also be a change of possession. If that's what the officials rule after this replay. This has been a nightmare for the Houston Texans. But for Indianapolis, this has just been exactly what they wanted. This is what the doctors ordered because Andrew luck has been terrific when it's two touchdowns seventeen hundred twenty nine good for almost two hundred yards. But what stands out to me Jeff is the running game for the colts. Whether it's one MAC with ninety ninety eight yards whether it's on the ground himself. I think that they've really good good job being able to control the line of scrimmage by running the football. But from the other side of the Houston Texans at home. What a disaster. We'll look at the replay of the of the play you're talking about now and they're going to call it a touchdown. That's close the Sellafield. The extra point is good. So now twenty one seven Indianapolis with the league. Boy that was really close kouteh coming through a touchdown. Okay. Well, all right. So now it looks like the Texans are somewhat back in this game. Let's get all the details. As we go down live to Houston and welcome. And once again, Scott Harrison. Hey, scott. Hey, thank you very much. Finally, it took a time consuming drive by the Texans to get on the scoreboard. They took over six minutes off the clock. Sixteen plays what eighty nine yards and they get their first score with ten fifty seven remaining in the fourth quarter. And it was a play that went under review. But it was ruled a touchdown a six yard pass to KiKi and he's approaching one hundred yards and receptions for the season with injuries recently. But making the most of his opportunity today. Meanwhile, the Shawn Watson he's approaching a one hundred two hundred yards as far as passing and interesting enough to Shawn Watson, he is a top rusher for the team. As a matter of fact, he has more yards rushing than anyone else combined that the Alfred blue and Lamar Miller he has thirty eight yards rushing. The two other backs. They only have a total of twenty four yards rushing. Well, we do have ten fifty seven remaining here in the fourth quarter in the wildcard game in Houston. And right now, it's Indianapolis Colts over the Houston. Texans. Twenty one to seven thank you. Scott texans. Need a sudden change right here. Like if they're going to take the ball away from Andrew luck. Again, it's going to be right here. Luxa far seventeen to twenty nine one ninety eight two touchdowns. Yeah. That one pick on that pass bad at the line of scrimmage JJ watt in the first half. But other than that the Texas defense has been stymied in Marlin MAC ninety eight yards on the ground and a touchdown. So he's going to go over one hundred yards rushing. Probably as soon as this. Dr I as as Mike wells told us who covers the colts for NFL nation. Jeff. The offensive line for the colts has been terrific. It really has been because it's opening those holes for MAC easiest game in the ball. He's they handed off to him and max doing all the rest even though he's got a touchdown. I state that his groundwork has been really good to give a different change of pace. And the nice wrinkle, I think for the colts offense, and then from there, you mentioned if the Texas when come back it's going to have to be kouteh. I think that KiKi kouteh is going to have to be able to come through again and hold on the ball. This time. That was really close. But. In their favor. Hey, one more on the on the offensive line for Indianapolis. I remember being at the combine last year, and everyone was saying well quit Nelson. Great player. But how do you take a guard number six overall? Remember that very big talking point. How do you justify taking a guard in the top ten? Well, you justify it. If the guard is a rookie is a first team. All pro. Yeah. Did you find was there any draft analyst last year that really watch Notre Dame film that said Quentin Nelson was going to be a bust. No, no, no. I I don't think there was a prospect more universally loved then Clinton Nelson that even the raiders general manager, I think he also felt very strongly about Gwen Nelson. No, no. Well, if we had to have them. We take them that the current the current raiders general manager you believe that he was also good player. But he thinks all the players are special. That's why he's with the raiders because his head coach and the GM both love all players Peterman. Apparently that is that's going to be a great combo. I can't wait to see. The raiders are good. That's good television. Now, buddy. Good TV what did they get the Vegas? Even better o alkyl. Brent he's also there. I know I know, but but again like it just shows you, please. If a guy is gonna be a great player, and you know, that this guy is going to be the best one of the best players at his position the next decade or twelve years, then you take him unless it's a punter. Rick. I told you on draft night. I felt the same way about roquan Smith at I just think that roquan Smith for the for the next decade is going to be a dominant player. I just you see it in college as much as you know, how much. College football, I watch. And I'm just you know, my eyes are bleeding watching college football week after week year after year, but just not when you see it right in the same thing with Nelson, and it's not like you. And I have the key for the pancakes on the offensive line. We don't know we don't know exactly everything that offensive lineman has to do besides, you know, not have any penalties. But I think that he's a special player everything that we read I think that players that you just watch every week every Danny boy that guy's gonna special on Sundays roquan Smith is another one I felt the same way about in that pass draft roquan Smith one hundred twenty two tackles as a rookie the most tackles by any bears rookie in team history. Except for one guy. He's in the hall of fame Bryner lacquer. And keep this in mind to about roquan Smith roquan Smith missed almost all training camp. That's right because he had a contract issue. And then when he got he finally got his deal done. He was the last first round pick the sign. I believe this deal done. He suffered two separate injuries in training camp. So he walked in almost cold in week one and still had one hundred and twenty two tackles and like five sacks or whatever. So I mean that that guy's going to be a heck of a player. So number six and number eight in the draft last year, those teams I think got their picks, right? As most of us thought they were going to colts are still driving Jeff as the the colts still with a twenty one seven lead. But I it's about time of possession. It's about trying to keep the ball away that give the ball back to the Shawn Watson Colston a nice job with eight fifteen left for the ball game with a fourteen point advantage. Here's a disheartening number from ESPN staff information regarding to Shawn Watson, I think this is prior to the last. Two plays of that last drive for the Texans. He was averaging only three point two air yards on his completions. That'd be the lowest rate of his career. He's never had a game under four point one. Meaning the ball is traveling through only three point two yards. You we have been keeping our eyes on the game as we've gone along with this show, and we have seen some balls that are low and inside where the receiver or the running back is kind of falling down with the with the football. So it has not had a lot of flight. I could see why that number of resonates with both of us is because Watson's thrown a lot of balls really low where a receivers kind of falling down. So he's not the same Watson that we saw especially during the winning streak for the Texans Marlin MAC as we thought has gone over one hundred yards rushing. He's the first colts player with one hundred plus rushing yards in a playoff game since Dominic Rhodes back in the Super Bowl. Forty one their win over the bears a long time ago. Twenty one seven colts in front of Texans. Coming up next the Nick foles magic continue tomorrow at Soldier Field we discussed Dickerson and hood, it's ESPN radio show.
"roquan smith" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"You not knowing in the talks about him. Linebacker. Stance in the numbers. He's been really really good. Thanks to you. Pat. Hang on. ESPN one thousand gift pack founded in Randy Americans all drawer, so careful when it comes to your house. Okay. Hookup Pat in tell city Patrick faith. And with a couple of interceptions sacks this year. Yeah. And those have been big. Eight tackles for loss, and it's great. The those two inside linebackers are two of the best is what are the best groups have inside linebacker, the other ones playing tonight Dallas's two inside linebackers are absolutely amazing. But I don't know if there are any better the roquan Smith, and Danny trevathan without the for all sixteen games. Four quarterback hits. He's got a bunch of solo taxes. So yeah, he's he's playing very very well this year. Any number fifty nine left inside linebacker, Fred? As you mentioned six bears. Have started all sixteen games on defense treve since one of them Amos Hicks flight and Goldman like you said solo tackles seventy since he's number two behind roquan. He's number two behind the real Clinton combined tackles and hear his two hundred suctions lead all of the box seven guys and his eight tackles for loss trail only team Hicks with twelve Matt with ten and Leonard flay with nine his everywhere. He plays all the time. Is he guy? He sure is. Senator is an. Myth. And it's you know, it's great because Danny Jaren was calling the plays eventually as we roquan Smith's job. Probably. But, but it's nice to see Danny trevathan a guy that was hurt when he came to the bears got hurt a little bit was out for a while. But now with trevathan the roquan Smith, they're they're going to be so dominant in this game. Tomorrow in such a key factor in this game against the eagles team who throws their tight end accurate lot. And it's going to be one of those guys. Keep an eye on hurts along with the you know, the bears nickel corner in sheriff McManus, Murph. Fred back in a flash back on the bears beat when we return nine till noon.

"roquan smith" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Brady. Congratulations to university champion. Today. Diversity of champions? You gotta at least know who's in the game is our game. That's her. Well, and you had one job. This fear that almost killed a few people. It'd be easy to remember the Bullhorn health action horns on the helmet. How what you're talking about the four hour. Mark. Can we stop the officiating in the fourth quarter to reviews not take that one back that one ref was out there? How many times guy, but I got to tell you the college football thing that drives me nuts is how archaic is the stopped the clock at the first down. Like, we gotta stop the clock. Every rule. To be honest with you. I don't know what that's about as keep it moving. I also don't like the one foot in bounds rule. I say get to win. You know, what I mean, if you're gonna play play why change that's different from college and NFL jobs. Yeah. I know. But I don't like that though. The only one is the only people who really have. I mean outside of the speed and the size of a game. The only adjustments between those two has got to be like for field goal kickers and wide receivers. You're talking about the jump from college football. The NFL is smaller than the. But I just. Transition. It's not as much I mean outside of speed and size. I don't think the game. Is you look at guys that are dominant in college football, or they have a very good college players. A lot of them go on a success right away example would be I mean, look at I can't remember his name right now out of Penn State running back for the barklay you saquon Barkley like he was in the media impact guy right out of the gate. Like the first night. I watched him. He's I kept that's near. And I knew he would. Yeah. Same with the roquan Smith in Chicago who's been good key led the team in tackles dude as a rookie. I'll I'll double check that. But I think I heard that stat over the break, by the way, I did go down a Levi's and watch the the bears Niner game there. I was there. Not that you have. I saw Murph. Before the game. Not the greatest football game. I've ever seen nine hundred and get in the end zone that day. Yeah. They had red zone travels. Hats off to George Kittle, though. What a way to end the season for real. That was awesome. How about that down down in LA sort makes me think about last year had the Rams decided to play their starters week seventeen. Remember just kind of roll just rolled over. And this gonna sit him for the for the bye week. The Rams I think are feeling better heading into the postseason cope. I looked down. I realized I'm late again. I show the I'm laid against the let me dive into what we.
"roquan smith" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"And you're like, of course, they have home-field we'll for them it matters planet like they're just it's hard for me to see them losing. I just think they are going to go to I don't know who's. Going to sue by the AFC, you know, the chiefs. They haven't won a playoff games like Joe Montana at at Arrowhead patriots or flaw. The Texans are weird. The ravens is hard. I don't know. I'm pretty confident the saints are going to win their two home games. They're going to get the Cowboys probably in the second round. It's going to be redemption pretty easy to bulletin board. Material bet team beat them earlier in the season. And then they probably get the, you know, the bears the ramps in that NFC championship game. I think they win. There is not losing home. So I just when I think I could have. Substituted dome for home field like it just places. Not they ain't losing their the Rams this crazy because I thought they were the best team in the league a month ago. But when I when you say the Rams the first thing, I think of a soft. I just I have a hard time. Honestly, I don't think the bears win this game, which is going to be tough against philli. I think the bears go to LA and beat him. And it's just because they're just soft Aaron Donald not soft Todd Gurley not soft. But he's injured. Now he's gonna play in that game. You would imagine. I mean, I think there was a report today he's gonna play, but he's not one hundred percent now Aaron Donald bad ass. But the rest of their defense is not very good their linebackers are average at best. They do not cover very well. So of Aaron Donald doesn't get you multiple sacks. You're in trouble. The Namba consumes a good big body. He doesn't do that much. So I don't know, man. I just in this. Word. I have for the bears. Why think that they're going to win? They're going to be eagles. And I go to L A and beat them. They're tough. When I think the bears, I just think tough, and listen is not matter nearly as much as it used to. But what they do on defense. Does matter. They can rush the shit out of the passer MAC Floyd Hicks. They can bring it both their linebackers can bliss those two linebackers can cover sideline to sideline. So even if you're running outside those guys can track them down, and then they can cover, and I would imagine Jackson's gonna come back. They DVD's make place. They lead the league in turnovers. Just this Fangio's his two point over what he had with Willis Bowman all those guys in San Francisco. He's got it kinda Gannon Chicago. They are bad ass defense. The ravens are fantastic unit. To me, the bears are just elite players and unit. They're they're the best version of what the ravens just because they don't really have. Have as many of the blue chippers. They just play. Well, a group the bears were the best of both worlds. They play great as a unit, and then they just have all pro level players. Like, I'm telling you roquan Smith, not a Pro Bowl or anything. The guy's gonna be the best linebacker in the league. You once key cleaned Bobby Wagner, get a little over like in three years. Roquan Smith will be the best middle linebacker Lee. Dallas speed man. They are they are elite speed on defense the front. They can really rush the passer, both the linebackers, and Sean Lee, you got Vander s Jalen Smith, and Sean Lee if Sean Lee hamstring can be ripping anytime, and then all their DB's they can fly their defensive team speed, especially at home is suffocating, and they are playing Russell Wilson whose mobile, but I think those guys chasing after Russell. Everyone's picking it feels like Seattle Dallas in this game. I liked Dallas pretty comfortable. Seattle you gotta tip your hat to them..
"roquan smith" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"It's never been easier. To throw the ball. We have to star receivers. We have a quarterback that now makes thirty plus million dollars. We drafted a running back two years ago in the second round that could have been a first round pick the can really catch the football. And we don't have a good blocking offense of line. Throw the football yet. He was adamant we we've fire John D flip. Oh, we gotta run the ball. Run the ball run the ball. So he goes in the biggest game of the year. We tried to run the ball. Yanked gonna run it. On Khalil Mack on Keam Hicks on roquan Smith on Danny trevathan on Leonard Floyd. Those guys are going to kick your ass. And then they're going to kick your ass some more Mike Zimmer living like a Dan dinosaur thinking that it's still nineteen Ninety-six deserve to get his ass kicked. If you're listening to this on Tuesday two days ago, it was his own. Fault for the archaic thinking refuse to think outside the box refused to admit and embrace. What is working in today's environment at home to lose that game embarrassing? I think you could justify firing Mike Zimmer right now, you know, I got to give a little credit where credit is due. I did not like their draft pick. Anyone that listen to the show knows that I am not big on running backs really high in the draft. I'm definitely not big on guard really high, but I'll take my hat occurs valor. And Andrew luck. And the colts organization to me this year was a muscle flex for two people one. I would say, you know, typically GM's don't get crazy buzz like over a period of two or three years and become the next Kyle Shanahan. Kyle kind of became an Atlanta. Adam gays was actually that guy before Miami hired him. You know, Pat Shurmur had a lot of buzz a couple years ago or. Just last year. Now, the giants head coach it's harder for GM's because we don't quite feel if you're not the assistant GM or the player personnel guy, or the college director is hard tell what you're really doing. But everyone that falls the NFL at heard the name, Chris Bala. I personally have never met him. I'm friends in no people with the chiefs that swear by them. I know Matt Nagy loves them vs loves them. Coterie love them. They all spoke highly of. But until you really know what a guy is doing. It's hard to quite quantify with a quarterback. It's pretty it's pretty easy. Right. It's black and white. I I never understood the Andrew luck haters. And maybe it's just as simple as in life. People resent greatness. Like, the dude was great in college. He gets rafted number one Ryan Grigson who I've worked with which was laughable when he was hired as the GM arguably go down as the worst general manager in NFL history. Almost ruined this great player. He took that team. He took Ryan Grim into the playoffs. Three times. Chuck pagano. Who somehow getting interviews? I wouldn't hire. Chuck Pagano is my head coach with a ten foot pole. But you know, Chuck pagawa was head coach Andrew luck overcame at all then this year with the help of Chris Ballard because I tip my hat to Chris Ballard, and maybe I. Should've thought about like the way I looked at the way they're draft had kind of the way they approached it you had to protect Andhra. I kind of get it. Now, maybe I shouldn't have been so stubborn like you can have you know, kind of hard hard set and concrete rules in life. But sometimes you have to be flexible too. You know, I wouldn't take running backs in the first round but saquon Barkley Zeke Elliott's I do get it that when you look at what Andrew luck accomplish this year with the help of Ballard and even. Josh mcdaniels left. Chris Ballard at the alter it still to this day. And we may never see anything quite like it again is one of the craziest things we ever seen in sports the end up with Frank rich. They start one in five Andrew early on. You know, as it should of hadn't played in a year and a half. He was coming off multiple shoulder. Injuries looks rusty. But for them to finish. What are they ten and six the sixty they're playing the Texans which they're getting two and a half points..
Dexter Lawrence Among 3 Clemson Players with Failed Drug Tests for Ostarine
"You have big games for Kirk cousins. And and guys like that. But ultimately the goal for every game is to win the game going out win the game. The bears won the game fourteen two nine some people say not an impressive game. You know, what they want the game in the NFL is not easy to win yesterday half. The teams lost the bears were not one of those teams. They won the game fourteen two nine Seattle went to Levi's stadium last week and played the Niners. Guess what Seattle lost? So you know winning is the ultimate goal. And that's what the bears have been able to do bears defense. Of course is a team is is the biggest part of this team. They got another interception yesterday as daddy to Raith and picked off a pass late in the game. Which was obviously. Big. No they needed to do that. I was really interested to see how they were gonna play without Eddie Jackson and they'll probably play without Eddie Jackson. Again this coming week. I think this coming week without any Jackson. Going up against the Minnesota Vikings team that needs the win to guarantee themselves a playoff spot. This is going to be a test for Dionne Bush at Adrian Amos ammos actually had a really good game. I was looking to some of the numbers earlier and let me see here. He's not running this one. I have I had so much stuff on the game where Adrian ammos actually had a pretty decent game. Would I grab his tackle numbers for the contest? And that was good to see because Adrian, ammos, he was second on the team in tackles. Roquan Smith had nine tackles Adrian animals had eight. So he stepped up his game without Eddie Jackson being their trevathan was seven Khalil Mack had five. You only had one sack that was the roquan Smith when he came wide open. So very very important stuff. How the bears are going to play defensively playing against the Niners without very good receivers. And when the young quarterback is one thing playing defense with Kirk cousins and Adam Phelan and Stefan digs and Kyle Rudolph. That's a whole other story playing in their building. So that's gonna be real interesting to see how the bears are able to play and defend this Minnesota Vikings team three one two three three two three seven seven six. Let's get back to some baseball talk to old town Georgia on ESPN thousand eight George. It looks like betting that they're trying to force. The dodgers handle that extra clearance on the payroll, which is I think, you know. Was the master. And I think a fallback of Pollock would be fantastic. If he stays help you what do you think? Yeah. Stephen Pollock healthy is a huge huge situation. You know, if in fact, you got him you could that actually move guy like Albert, Al more. If you're going to cause I still think they're gonna have to move one of those three guys I've been saying that all off season and it hasn't happened yet. So maybe I'm wrong. But I kind of thought they would move either. Now, Mora Ishwar or a half the more. I look at it. It's not going to be Schwarzer. They love Schwarzer. He's like one of their kids one of their little kids their own kids as well. I think it would be either Hapoel more if they did grab a guy. Like Pollock that'd be a completely different story. But you you think the the Harper situation, you don't think there's any changes coming here. Do you? I really think he's he's kind of an LA kinda dude. If you know what I mean? With the hair. Coast to coast. I mean seems like the perfect fit out there. But why not force the hand if we can and try to call back. He get stronger on our end. George. Appreciate the call. The one thing that I think the cubs have gone forms aproach the season first of all they won ninety five games last year. Okay. It's not like they you know, they had an awful season. They didn't hit in the last month earlier. It didn't hit in down the stretch, and they need to figure out why. And it's so it was so much fun. Watching the ball, very rarely say this.

We will be previewing week one in the NFL including a very, very big opening-night matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles. And maybe we should just start there. Greg, the eagles first team offense has not scored a point in the preseason. What have you seen from them and is there legitimate cause for concern in your mind? Well, I think Ross at the eagles particularly with foale's at quarterback and he will play, I'm sure week one. They're a highly schemed offense and they're not really scheming into preseason to face particular opponents. Now. Foles is the kind of quarterback in which there's a wide variance in his play. He's a streaky player. We know he can go on grade runs as he did a year ago, but he also when he's poor, he's very poor. He can be slow. He can be deliberate, his

The end of the year no more Yu Darvish for. The Chicago, Cubs this season and the I guess the good part is the ligament that was repaired from his. Tommy John surgery is fine so he will not. Need any Tommy John surgery he'll just have to deal with this and should be back for next year because the philosophy is if he has, to have Tommy John surgery he's out, for a whole 'nother year then you lose him for two years essentially of his contract and then.
