"Jammed together in all three may make the playoffs And then there's the Cardinals and I think the Cardinals they don't make the playoffs. Think there'll be one of the teams looking for a new coach, Come January. Why do you say that? Well, when you look at the history of the Cardinals They've They've been around for over 100 years. They've never had a coach last longer than six years. Two guys made it six years. Jim Hanifin and Ken wasn't hunt Bruce Arians was there five years. And this is the year when the column very experiment needs to come to fruition, and if it doesn't happen, it's not gonna be anyone's fault. But the coach who's responsible for getting the most Out of Murray and just some of the things that were said throughout the offseason by guys like GM Steve Khan by Murray, who is clearly getting frustrated by not getting to the postseason. I think if it doesn't happen, that's when job number one in Arizona becomes finding the right coach. To build the perfect offense around column er, give me some more hot seat. Well, I think I think in Minnesota, where Mike Zimmer Is setting the stage to be on the hot seat by saying, I think we have a pretty good team. Now we just have to go out and prove it. Rick Spielman, the guy who built the team is probably very appreciative of that, because maybe that means he doesn't get fired if they fail to make it to the playoffs, But they have a weird vibe around them. Because of the offense. Offense feels like it's fallen off a bit now we didn't see any Dalvin cook in the preseason, but if that offence doesn't doesn't produce at a high level, it's going to be very difficult for them to get to the postseason, And if they fail to make the playoffs for two straight years, I think Zimmer could be In significant trouble. Beyond that, it's just going to go. I mean, other than Kingsbury and Zimmer. You know who out there has. I mean, would Mike McCarthy be gone in Dallas? I don't know They'd fire him after two years. Sack Taylor in Cincinnati Easy pick for the hot seat. If he's got guaranteed money in his contract for 2022 Bengals, don't fire people and pay them. They want their coaches to work, and Jerry Jones is the same way. Probably only thing he has in common with Mike Brown. He doesn't like to pay coaches to not work either. And that guaranteed money for either McCarthy or Taylor beyond this year could help save them. But you know, we see it every year. I mean, there's gonna be bad teams. Everybody's optimistic. Now. Glass is half full everywhere, Everybody zero and zero. Everybody's got a chance. The end of the day. Every team that's good. That means it's gonna be a team that's bad, and you know, we we see it. We we saw what seven last year. It's amazing the turnover, but Either when you're done and you don't have many chances, and Jon Gruden should be on the hot seat in Las Vegas, But he's not because Mark Davis ain't gonna fire. You know, Mike Mayock will be gone. I think if they don't make the playoffs That Mark Davis is going to keep Jon Gruden indefinitely into the future. Mike Florio here on the rich Eisen show Pro football talk. Um, starts our day here on NBC Sports on Peacock every single day at Pro football Talk on Twitter. What's going on with T. J Watt? In Pittsburgh. What's happening with Mike Tom on the coach of the team said today. He's optimistic they're going to get something done. Excuse me, Um They have some weird rules. One is I'm in a coughing fit here. One is stories here. Go ahead. Go ahead. No, Go ahead. Get a simple water. We're professionals here. One is That they have to get contracts done by the start of the season or that's it. Okay, fine. Well, what's going to happen with what if they don't get his contract? By the start of the season, they're going to have to break their rule. Because they've allowed him to show up, not practice. Not play and you know, just in this weird holding pattern, the other rule that hurts the Steelers here. The fact that they don't give fully guaranteed money beyond the first year of a contract. That's a real problem with what he wants. Full guarantees beyond this year. Other elite defensive players have gotten full guarantees beyond the first year, but but it feels like they're going to get something worked out right up against the deadline deadline driven business. Look for what? To make a little bit more than 27 year in new money on probably a five year extension. The question is going to be how much of it is fully guaranteed its signing. I mean, I really again we're not there. I'm not there. Okay, so I'm not there. But sitting out it just seems like another situation where teams are like we don't do it this way. And it's like, well, you you you do it that way. Sure, But why don't you make an exception for this guy? Because you can always mentioned two other people. Well, we did it for T. J Watt. You're not in that echelon. What? You know what I mean, like it's so simple for players to get what they want and for franchises to bend the rules if they just had The ability to not break on the front of looking another player in the face and saying You're not that person and you know who's doing that right now. Tampa Tampa is totally reconfiguring the way that they go about their business for Brady, and they're not worried at all that the next part like they're not worried at all that Kyle Trask is going to be coming to ask for something or anybody else on the team is asking for something. You're not Brady. You don't. You didn't come here with six rings and give us 1/7. It's that simple and it Green Bay put themselves between a rock and a hard place with Rogers. It seems Because they only do it a certain way. I I kind of just Oh, it's it's I don't understand it. You're right. Look, you have to acknowledge that certain players merit certain treatment, and the dealers will bend their rules they did with Antonio Brown. They don't renegotiate contracts with more than one year remaining unless it's quarterback, so he had three years left. He wasn't happy with his deal, so they took some money. From the next year and moved it into the current year. And then the next year they took money from the last year moved into that year. And then the last year they gave him a new contract. Now we know it all went to hell after that, but they've got ways. To work around it if they really want to, But, yeah, for a great player, you just do it. It's TJ Want and having these rules that are separate, apart from the rules are set forth in the labor deal. It sets you up to not be as competitive as you could be, because other teams are going to do it. And it's going to make it harder for you to keep the players you really want to keep. If you're stubborn about when you're going to do contracts and what the terms are going to be, and well, we don't want to put money in escrow for next year. Well, everybody else does it except for the Packers. So you better do it too. Yeah, I just don't. I don't get it. I You know, it just it's mystifying to me. So, um, But before I I, I let you go. Are you on the bills? Um, for this year? What's your A F? C, uh, thought on that front. I think there are nine teams in the A F. C. The bills the Patriots, Ravens Steelers, Brown's Colts, Titans Chargers chiefs that are all good enough. Two. By the time we get to January being the playoffs and make some noise in the playoffs, so it's a very difficult top heavy division. Did go bills bucks. As my Super Bowl teams this year, and you know what the hell let's throw the folks in western New York a bone. Let's say the bills are going to beat the bucks because we have seen Tom Brady lose three Super Bowl, so it's not like it would be unprecedented. He can get there..

"And out and lost six total yards. And then when they were down eight. They were moving the ball and we all know that LaFleur. They stalled in the in the red zone at the goal line, and they ended up kicking the field will give the ball back to Brady down five and they never got the ball back. If I'm Rogers, even if I can't stand Goodykoontz, even if I can't stand Mark Murphy, and it seems if he likes the flurry, said down to Kenny Mayne interview. He likes the teammates to I'm not telling you to spend your rest of your career there. For this year, though it's already July fit. The season starts early September. Just stay there for this year and then tell the team I'll play nice this year. I'm going to try everything I can to win a Super Bowl. But this is it. This is done and they are from you. Contract extension. Maybe ends have taken it But he hasn't yet. If he really wants out, I would wait one more year at this point. It's like you're going to Denver. It's not as if you're getting traded to the Saints. It's not as if you're getting traded to a team that's ready. But now and now. Yeah, you're bringing Rogers. You're expected to win. But you're in a team that Roger has been on for his entire career, and even they've had problems getting over the hump. With a team that has 13 wins. 26 The last two years. And the Broncos. I don't like their coaching Vic Fangio. I don't like Pat Shurmur. I would wait until both those guys get fired. If you really want to go to Denver, then you get traded to Denver and away you go. And you can Pete up against Mahomes to end up your career. But I did see that the Packers over under number was at nine. And even though that tells me in Vegas doesn't think that he's coming back, and they want people to hammer the number right now, if I see that I'm betting the over on nine because I still think in my heart that Roger is going to be back. So I was going through the list, and usually I like to go right if we're doing over and just to give you Two overs. Three unders. Three overs to one. There's whatever it would be. Pick five numbers that I like. And I like the over and all five of them. So let's start with Green Bay Love Green Bay over the nine because I think Rogers will be there. They won 13 games last two years. This year, you gotta 17th game. Saints. Get it. I'm not saying the same script in that division. I understand that Drew Brees is no longer there The last two years, though, Drew Brees is miss significant times and they've done really well without you breeze. Yeah, you'd rather have Drew Brees. But I do think there's going to be some redemption. I'm not gonna tell you gonna be great. I do think there will be redemption here for Jameis Winston. And with that roster In a conference where you feel good about the box. You feel good about the Packers. Assuming Rogers there the West. There's 34 really good teams, but you don't know who is going to rise to the top there in that division. Because you could order that one to forever you wanted. Nothing would surprise me. I do think that the Saints will be a wild card team. And I would say that they're going to be 10 or 11 wins this year. The Saints I think they'll be better than nine and eight. So I do like the Saints on the over so far, McKee and just yes or No? Do you agree? Yes or no Green Bay and the over of nine No, you don't. You think the under cause you don't think Roger's gonna be there? Yeah, That's my opinion. Okay. Saints over under nine. No wonder why not? You don't trust Jamis. Winston to turn over. No, I don't. I think they'll put him in a good spot. There was a division will be better. Well, it's funny. You say that to another number. If you think the division is going to be better, that means you're either putting a lot of stock with the Falcons or the Panthers. Will put stock that Carolina I'm not telling you, Caroline to make the playoffs. Think Carolina who improved defensively the second half of the year. They have a really good offense. McCaffrey back you have DJ more You also have Robby Anderson quarterback is a big question. Mark was Sam Donald. He had a little jolt of energy from from Sam Donaldson to think out of New York. I think the Panthers could be an eight or nine when football team this year and there at seven a half. You agree with that Donald is something to prove. 8/8 half now, the last two numbers here. I think these are low. Because I see the Chiefs went in 13 14 games. Chiefs 12.5 You got to like the Chiefs on the over there at 12.5. If you're going to everybody, the Chiefs in the next 10 years, it's either over or that's it. Yes, right. I would not bet the under in any confidence with Kansas City bet Mahomes to not be able to do anything. Well, the only if you're better the under You just think my home is going to get hurt seriously and To try to prognosticate that is just stupid. And then finally and I said, Here we go again. It's the Cleveland Browns and its first than 10. Here we go. Brown is there we go Roof and no, I'm not a Browns fan. But I do want to see the Browns do well because I love teens that for years and years and years Losers, and then they get their moment because it does have a great reaction from a fan base that has been tortured and definitely deserves a winner. The Browns at 10.5. It's a good division, right? You got the Ravens. I think the Steelers won't be that bad, but they're also not going to be great, and I would hope that the Bangles could be competitive or else sack. Taylor is going to get fired. I wouldn't be stunned, actually thinks that Taylor will get fired. Joe Burrow is going to be a good player with Tamar Chase. I do like the Browns on the over of 10.5. They got 11. Last year. You had an extra game. We saw the Browns. Not meet expectations two years ago, So the fancy comes in. They won 11 games. I do like the Browns over 10.5 you with me on that? Yes, Absolutely. All right, So I'm going five overs right there. First. Look, Panther 7.5. Rounds. 10.5 Chiefs 12.5 Packers Saints both over on the nine when we come on back John is gonna play. CP three or Devin Booker for finals MVP or the Sun is going to win the finals. Eddie Johnson is breaking down. Sons Bucks next five minutes, CBS.

"Time Billy coming in the Great American I wanna acknowledge. First of all, the 2020 was one hell of a year. 2020 one's got to be a little bit better. We have scheduled to Governor Mike DeWine a 12 05 today because of a conflict mainland are and he's going to join us to 12 35 about 25 30 minutes from now. I don't wanna miss it because all of us want to know including Mohagher. What's the Rollout of the vaccination schedule. How coming hasn't happened more quickly. What's coming up next? There were reporting that those over the age of 65 could start lining up for shots Next week, however, it appears those in nursing homes and convalescent center dark haired right now with the vaccination. So what's gonna happen next week is anyone's guess. So. Stay tuned for the governor about 25 minutes. Also later on is a congressman. Bread wind strip. Also later on is the great number 85 Tim McGee, But until then, Mo Eggar as the first captain 21, Welcome to the Bill Cunningham Show in Mo. How are you? I'm great, Willie. Happy New Year I'm honored. Honored and I'll tell you what Well this morning. A big announcement was made by the Bangles that Zach Taylor is coming back and the 32 games He's coached the Bangles have one. I think a total of six out of 32 games. Watching the game yesterday it appeared the Bangles were completely overmatched, completely overmatched. Going forward. You have to get into the head of Mike Brown and Katie Brown. What do you think was the reason that the general manager and the ownership of the Bangles decided to keep a coach who had won six of 32 games? What is the reason kind of you have to funnel and you have to tunnel through the minds of Mike and Katie Brown? And they're good people. Let's face the good people. I'm not sure about football wise, but they're good people. Why do you think the Bangles manage? Management decided to keep sack Taylor know, based on everything I've come to understand about Mike Brown and the way he operates in the way the family operates loyalty to drives a lot of decisions, whether they should or not, And in many respects that's really, really good. In this respect, I don't know. In the past, it hasn't worked out. They were exceedingly loyal to Dave Shula. They were exceedingly loyal to Marvin Lewis, Um, being exceedingly well to Marvin Lewis in 2010 paid off five consecutive playoff appearances. They've been exceedingly loyal to their own players. You know, you look at this year's team they brought back a J. Green probably shouldn't have brought back Gino Atkins on a contract A couple of years ago. A lot of people questions Brought back Carlos Dunlap on the contract. A couple of years ago. There's been a lot of people questioned. It blew up in their face, but like it or not fair or not, you and I both know, um, loyalty is a very admirable trait, but it guide's decisions for this franchise. And often times it should not. And then the other thing is, if there were any doubts going into that Pittsburgh game As to whether or not Jack Taylor was going to come back as cathartic as it was for Bangles Sands to experience that win as much as that night at Paul Brown Stadium felt like an exorcist, Um, because the Bangles bullied the Steelers, which never happened if there were any doubts about Zac Taylor's future in 2021, But I think that victory threw cold water all over all those doubts and all but confirmed the news that was That we found out today. But Look at the statement of Mike Brown quote. We remain bullish on the foundation. Zach is building I look forward to next year, giving our fans that want results Real one, Mike Brown said. Also, many clubs had all kinds of injury problems, and the Bangles certainly were not exempt from that. They lost their best running back. Maybe their best offensive lineman. Their best defensive linemen were traded hand or did not play up to expectations. Their best wide receiver didn't catch a ball yesterday. And so the foundation is being built. And I'd like to know what is the foundation? What is the plan going forward? And the answers were hell, no. And I want this team to be successful. You want them to be successful? You want your daughter grew up in a city in which the Bangles are acting like is the 19 seventies and eighties again, it was there always winning Division championships going to the Super Bowl a couple time not quite getting there, but the excitement was palpable. And so what do you tell your young daughter? She sits on your lap watching a Bangles game. She's what 45 years old. What will her future look like? Is a bangle stand throughout the 21st century 3.5. She's not quite there. Um, she had no interest in watching the game with me yesterday, which, frankly, I can't blame her because it was awful. So so there's a lot there. The foundation is Joe Borough, you know that. I know that. I think that if there's any reason for optimism with this franchise, it's it's number nine. It's Jo Bro, but you talked about the statement that like Brown released today. My problem with the statement is the first sentence in which he says two years ago, our fans wanted Blank, blank blank right. He points the finger at fans. Don't think fans wanted Jack Taylor. I think what fans wanted was a thorough process in which they turned over every stone in which they had no preconceived notions in mind as to what the prototype for a head coach should be. Didn't care if it was an offensive guy. Defensive guy. Special teams guy old Young experienced from college from the pros. Been a head coach before been a play caller before instead what it felt like is that whoever the next head coach of the Bangles was going to be. You had to check some boxes, right? OK, we want an offensive guy who's young and somebody who's had lunch with Sean McVeigh before. And that letter. Zach Taylor. Zach may be a very good NFL head coaches. Winning percentage right now is worse than Daschle is in huge actions and human Oh, in 16 and one season, but The problem for me, is it him or necessarily even retaining him? It's pointing the finger at the public that did one changed two years ago. We did. The whole operation had been stale under Marvin Lewis, but I didn't want a shortsighted. Frankly lazy process and the way itself Woz. Okay. Aw, offensive guy. Marvin's a defensive guy. We're going to go younger. Marvin's older Everybody wants the next vomit bag. Well, that Taylor works for some Nick. They were all I hear is that Taylor did it feel to you like it was a process to go and get the best in the world at what they do. No, it felt like they were checking boxes. And once all the boxes were checked, it felt like we got Zac Taylor. Mike Brown statement today basically pointed the finger advance. It's essentially more eloquent way of saying, Hey, look, people, this is what you wanted. So what you wanted? This is what you got to shut up and deal with it. We got to fax to stand out to me. The Bangles finished one in five in the F C North. They're outscored by almost 100 points. 1 73 to 80. And with Joe Burrow at the helm, they were a 25 and one What Joe? Borrow, not at the helm. There were two and five So basically the quarterback is important. But maybe not That important. A complete Reed. You must occur. Wide receiver, defensive line linebackers Joe Mixon. God knows. He's hey, had a fabulous last year signed that big deal didn't play the last half of the season. So going forward what excitement is available to us in August and September? Assuming the Bangles can have fans? We're gonna talk to Mike DeWine on that in about 15 minutes in the stands, assuming that's going to occur, What is the excitement looking forward to 2021? You and I both know how this is gonna work, Willie. Hello. Hello, Working. We're gonna load up on this. Go ahead. You and I both know how this is gonna work. Willie. This team is going to be crushed for the for the next couple of weeks locally. The off season..

Bengals at the Combine in Indianapolis, taking a closer look at Joe Burrow
"With us here from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis where we will be all week so much going on. I'm waiting next with Adam. Schefter Louis Riddick Todd mcshay and Mike Tannenbaum just to catch you up right now. Here's what's happening today in Indianapolis. It will be a very busy week. At Five o'clock eastern though owners are expected to meet players to talk about the new CBA which could expand the playoffs and move to a seventeen game regular season. We've got forty seven. Nfl head coaches and GMT. We'll be talking today. You're also hear from SEC. Standouts Joe Borough and to a ton of Aloha who also addressed the media earlier today. Jonesboro put on an absolute show as you know on route to a national championship for Lsu setting an FBI. Single season record with sixty touchdown passes and Ditto. While completing a whopping seventy six percents of his passes and not only that but bro won the heisman trophy in dominant fashion receiving a record ninety point seven percent of the first place votes here. Our previous comments from Joe Borough on February seventeenth during a reception. For the Davey. O'brien award. He had this to say I do have leveraged the Bengals have their process and I have my process. We haven't even gotten to the combine yet. There's a lot of things that happened. Leading up to the draft. A lot of information gathered bras. Mother Robin shot down the idea. Her son does not want to play for the bengals. Saying we have no idea where that came from. It's a story out there that has created that doesn't have any substance at least from our perspective here Hasbro earlier today here at the combine. Of course I want to be the first pick. That's that's every kid's dream you know I've worked really really hard for this opportunity and I'm blessed to be in this position. I'm a ball player. Whoever picks me on my go show up? How play whoever for forever dressing? You know. I'm just not going to be presumptuous. About what they WANNA DO I. It's the draft. You guys have been covered it for a long time and you never know what's going to happen so we played a month longer than everyone else and everyone else's been training a month longer than us you know. I wanted to put. I don't I didn't think I'd be able to put my best foot forward here at the combine so I wanted to wait till pro day had another whole month of training and just be the best that I could be when everyone when. Everyone's eyes are on me. You know coming in. If you're the number one pick the teen is picking number one. Is there for a reason? So you're going to have to come in. There's going to be ups and downs and you've got to stay steady through the process. Our research tells us about Joe. Borough is his own man. He's not going to be talked into saying things for other people's benefits so if that's what he said. That's that's fantastic. I'm looking forward to getting to know him getting to meet him through. The process haven't been able to sit down with them yet. But we've got that on the horizon. We'll talk more about Joe. Boroughs plans to hold off throwing here at the combine. But might I'll start with you in terms of do you want? Do you not want to play for the being. You have any issues at all with where we landed at least at this point. No I mean as I said last week Joe Borough at the end he does not have leverage. The bengals have the first pick in the draft. If they want to draft. Joe Joe Borough. That's where he's GonNa go now with that. Said I think it's incumbent upon sack Taylor in the Bengal organization to create the Right Environment. Where he could come in and they could build something sustainable and truly transformative so. I think where we wended. Wendy is appropriate last week. He could've handled that better but to Joe Boroughs credit. I think they tweak things I think they're in a good spot now. He's been well-coached past week. Tower doesn't it. Yeah and Adema to your Do All your contacts. It appears that borough likely young he's projected pick. I still think that's where the bengals ultimately go. And they're sitting there and that's about this a team that needs somebody to revitalize that franchise and they are expected to look to trade Andy Dalton at some point this off season and so when you're sitting there in division with Lamar Jackson there in Baltimore think that they know that they have to get somebody in there. That's going to put some points on the Board Baker Mayfield Cleveland and this is going to be the pick for the Cincinnati bengals. Even Joe was considering trying to exercise some kind of leverage really the only leverage you have is withhold your services and not playing not report even if he was thinking along those lines. Let's say he's doing a deep dive trying to figure out exactly. Just what the Cincinnati offer as far as developing me as a quarterback. Could you blame him? Could you really blame him for wanting to dig? Deep on exactly what? What does the future going to look like during over the course of my rookie contract with this football team would exactly? What exactly is Mike Brown's commitment to go ahead and building out this roster around me because we all know a lot of what's going to happen to him has nothing to do with him and has everything to do with everything that's going to be around him. Just look at the past three or four drafts. And how certain players have benefited from going to certain to certain teams? Just look at l a look at the difference between jar rookie year in his second year. Sean mcvay came in. It flipped his rookie year. People were saying Jared Goff to Canada. All of a sudden his second year is like. Oh wait a minute. Maybe he's not so bad you couldn't blame him. If that was a thought Lewis to that point I also think an opportunity. If you're Zach Taylor to say hey what's happened in the past. It's irrelevant we're going to myself with you and we're going to build something great and we can't worry about what's happened before we have a lot of work to do. But if I'm the bengals if I have a hey coach Taylor. That's worked with quarterbacks. Like you mentioned Jared Goff Joe Boroughs Billy and character. That's a great opportunity for the bengals. Sino three things one. Is that if something were to go on with. The bengals is not going to happen in public and this has been addressed in the past week if it's going to happen behind the scenes so whatever we hear from this point on. Don't even don't even look at it. Don't think about it because it has nothing to do with with what is going on behind the scenes. The second thing is this guy's different cab he beats. It goes a Beatles drummer. He doesn't care what anyone else has done. In the past what everyone else is GonNa do in the future? He's going to do what's best for Joe Borough but the third thing I know about him is he's a football guy he's his. His brothers played linebacker at safety at Nebraska. His Dad's a almost four decades coach in football. He's a football guy at its core. He's from Ohio. Obviously I think when it's all said and done he winds up going in Cincinnati if he's number one overall pick but again. If it's GonNa Happen it's GonNa Happen. Not In the media. It's GonNa happen behind the scenes again. Joe Bro not expected to throw on Thursday. He said he just wasn't ready yet. Not a huge deal. Sam Darnold Kyla Murray. The last two years have opted not to throw here at the combine as well. What did make headlines on Sunday? Oddly enough pros hand measurements the measurable quarterbacks took place on Sunday on the smaller side. Love listen here's what he said after it was suggested his aunt size was small considering retirement after. I was informed that we slipping out of my tiny hands. Please keep me in your thoughts while he's got good company because here's what Super Bowl fifty four. Mvp Patrick Mahomes had to say who had just slightly larger hands than did borough my small Andrew doing great so far all right he should say believe in yet. Here's borough earlier today addressing his hands. Yeah I mean these measurements you can. You can take so much from them if it's a glaring issue on film with turnovers. Yeah it's probably an issue but I didn't have a lot of fumbles or anything like that so I just tried to make a little joke out of it I think it's a non factor I don't get paid to talk about. Measurements and analyze. The measurements like played to play football. So that's what I'm GONNA do. I look we're not gonNA make too much of this question. Well yet about what? They actually do what they're actually measuring here so worry not. We've got a ruler. We've got Louis at. I mean really what you're really trying to do is just trying to measure the expense of someone and they put it down on the ground and you actually hear about guys actually doing hand exercises to stretch their hand as wide as possible although when you're grabbing a football you're actually going to measure from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the Pinky here and this is hard because this is a hard rule and you can't really get good accurate measuring you look tired type by just under nine right. Look I'll give you a non center's Oh that's attention and would have actually done something with my. I mean what's interesting when you watch the tape of Joe Borough? There are situations where people come from behind strip him when he's trying to move up in the pocket and run. I mean that's going to happen if you have nine if you have ten inches so I mean it's not a glaring obvious problem as far as him on the football field and that's why I think it's really. It's just going to be something that will hopefully wind up forgetting about certain the biggest thing is and you know this with all of these drills you know as well. Mike you go back to the tape and you're trying to find something after the fact that says okay. Now I'm going to look specifically at these things so you're gonNA look cold weather rain and then ball security and Joe Boroughs as good as any college quarterback you're ever going to see in the pocket in terms of two hands on the ball and protecting the ball. I saw him in two thousand eighteen the last weekend. In September against Ole Miss. You can go back and watch the tape. My suit was soaking wet when I did the open of that game. It was pouring rain driving rain in anyone who says it doesn't rain in Baton Rouge on a Saturday night is lying to you. Because it poured and he completed seventy two percent of his throws with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in that game. So you go back to the tape and you try to look at these things and what the tape tells you is. He's just fine. You know I had a theory here. I have an interesting experience with hand size so I was forced out in two thousand eight. We were we trade for Brett Farve and just as a fan of sport. I can't wait to go out to the first practice and watch Brett farve throw. There's nothing physically imposing about breath and he goes out there and he's throwing Abe I've ever seen and I ask them like what is the value. Where's this philosophy comes from it? He said you know what Mike I have long fingers and I actually couple of football the way a lot of people throw a softball. I could actually be over the top and that's where I get all my philosophy from just watching my practice. It was unbelievable to watch though. I know as Lewis show. There's a tradition of how we measure hands but finger. Length is actually an underrated aspect of playing quarterback so far so far small hands but long fingers and you know what my pinky and all the time strong throwing football pictures of the five. It's easily the least important finger in the hand and I can't remember it ever being a big factor. It's all there in the grip. The pinky to me doesn't matter. It's archaic. How we're measuring the quarterback's hand span now with that. Said there's thirty four quarterbacks in the last fourteen years who have been drafted that have had hands of nine inches and smaller and really only two of them had any sort of Sustained Success Ryan. Tannehill is one of them and Jared. Goff is the other. That's it so there are thirty two out of thirty four. Who have failed. But are we going to say that he's going to the Joe Boroughs? Not GonNa have success because his hands tells me that the reason for their failure wasn't because they were nine inches weight.
