"That was not my wish to bomb your ears again. Again, really, really. Goes up his hands. Like, he has no control. Okay. So anyway, menas hanging out with us today. So. Let me know when you guys had that Schleyer at shown is it up and ready to roll or. No, no, you're still trying to find it. Okay. Well, anyway, let's just get into it. Anyway. So he said, well, we'll let you hear the specifics of it in a second. But long story short. He just believed that if the Rams are going to change one thing in particular, and we'll get back to the Lakers stuff. I promise. But if they were going to change one thing in particular that he would change schematically what they do, you know, run out of different sets as opposed to ninety ninety five percent run out of eleven personnel with three wide receivers and cetera. He feels like run multiple tight ends, you know, give people different looks. Because it what he's what he said was basically the patriots threw it back to like nineteen ninety. You know, what I'm saying the way they decided to game plan against them. So he believes that that makes them potentially more versatile. What do you think? I think there's definitely some truth to that. Right. There was a lot of truth to it in this game going into the game. I actually thought given the patriots defense and how good they've been. Against eleven one of the best teams in the league eleven by the way for those who don't know when when the Rams are there. It's their usual typical personnel grouping with three ride receivers and how bad the patriots evens had been against twelve. You can look at the stats. I thought that the Rams would come out and mix it up more. And they didn't now that doesn't mean the Rams can't, you know, run eleven and stick to their typical game plant, which by the way has a great deal of diversity of how they use those players for. It's not like they just do the same vanilla stuff over and over. It's just that they use the same players. But I think it's fine for them to do that during the regular season in do it. But you gotta take what the defense is giving you right? And then it goes back about I was saying about why like Flora's and what I loved about this patriots defensive game plan is they were doing things you hadn't seen. Okay. And especially in the Super Bowl when you got those two weeks to prepare. You do want to switch it up a little bit. And I think that was what was so frustrating about this ram. Uh-huh. Offense and end McVay. And what they did was the things that they're so good at play action. You know, pre snap motions. It wasn't working. The I time do didn't do anything. I can't do anything either. The Rams were the patriots who typically make play man defense where playing zone dropping back to defend the the Rams when they run play action. They like to do these longs crossing roots deep crossers post pates paths for taking that away covering the middle of the field. He got a just doesn't mean every game going forward doesn't mean. They can't stick to you know, eleven and a healthy dose of play action. But you play the team that's in front of you. And I felt like they didn't do that. Yeah. It was very weird again. It's what you and I kind of touched under in purgatory, which is that they. They didn't really do. Well, whenever they had to go off their their own version of the script. Whatever the script is like they aren't good at they weren't good at kind of going on the fly at times. Now they did in the New Orleans game. You know, they found themselves in kind of a unique situation. And then they they kind of went and and got super aggressive on their own thirty yard line. Faking the punt and throwing that bowl on Hecker hacker to to Sam shields. But yeah, like, you're only going to your you can't pull that trick out again. Right. Like New Orleans going to be ready for that two weeks later. Not like you can do that anymore game. Great example, again of address mints praise make they afterwards..

There's a lot of talk about Tom Brady and Bella Jack. And how great they are. And I'm not sure right away from them. Right. But because they are great. They are. But I think the Rams are being overlooked here. Sam shields special teams maven Super Bowl champion with us here on ESPN LA Sam let me ask you you've been here before like how different is it. The second time. The only thing I've seen different the media. You know, the media just you know, is very different. Now, just you know, how they're going about things coming out in NBA arena.

"Okay. So, you know, I do TV right? I'm on the jump a ton. I'm always very thankful. Rachel nichols. Who allows me to be on that show as both an analyst and filling in as a host for her. But basically the host of that show is also like much like a radio show. You're also kind of an analyst. So I have said on that show that del Dem's is not fit for that job. Like he is not a good general manager. And I am stunned that he still has a job. And I am not Mike. You've known me now for a long time way before I started working here. I am not the guy who yells for people to be fired. I am not that guy. Okay. So when I actually do it is because man like that person has gone at it for a long time where they have been incompetent Jeff Fisher, for example. Right. So. I met him. And he could not have been nicer to me. And I almost feel like is he doing that? Because he knows I said the thing on television or is he doing that? Because he's nice, and it's probably a combination of both. But man, like it's just like this is the type of stuff as to why David Stern said you weren't fit for that job during the Chris Paul trade. He basic remember that he he David Stearns, Adele Dem's was not competent enough to make all of that work. If they traded Chris Paul and hence why he nixed. The Lakers the with Chris Paul? So this is not the first time Laker fans have had to deal with Dell Dem's and the incompetence of the New Orleans franchise. It is absolutely insane. I can't believe they are still dealing with the stuff. And I can't believe that Dell has been putting a position again to potentially screw up the whole Lakers. Could god. So have you missed? Whoa, jr. Here's what he said. The warlords has no interest in Akwa Anthony Davis to the Lakers right now. All right, then. Good lord. The good news. Is it looks like kyri as we heard from rebuke wants to potentially rejoined LeBron. Byron Scott's gonna be in the house in a minute. We will talk to a Byron who coached kyri. He knows kyri. See what he thinks about that? And Sam shields of the Rams Super Bowl champion Sam shields. He's the guy with actual experience on this thing will join us after that as the Rams get ready to take on the patriots in the Super Bowl. So we'll talk to Byron about Kyrie.

"This Saturday. So if you're thinking about maybe making a wager on Super Bowl, fifty three better get on a quick for this Kerry. What's the show right after New England beat Kansas City? The opening line on the game. The immediate line on the game was RAMSAR point favorite. Within seventeen minutes. Seventeen minutes of a line opening as the Rams is a point favored New England was a two and a half point favorite in seventeen minutes. You know, it's money has to go down on team to flip the line four points in seventeen minutes. The line is now moved up to three and a half points. And according to the Mirage. Ninety six percent of the money that has been wagered on the Super Bowl based on the point spread is on New England. Ninety six percent of the money wagered on the point spread. Is our New England. And that line is going up up up. Now, here's here's the thing that I really have to take a look at when you look up up of these two teams. A lot can be made about experience. But there has never been a Super Bowl ever. Not even close to compare the Super Bowl of experience of one team versus another team. Tom Brady alone is played in eighth Super Bowls. He has played an eight Super Bowls. And remember this is New England's third straight Super Bowl and therefore Super Bowl in the last five years. But if we just use Brady's eight Super Bowls, right? The entire ram roster combined has played in five C J. C J Anderson is played in to keep to leave. A key to league is played in one Brandin cooks played in one. Yup. And Sam shields with Green Bay. Yeah. That's it. Now, I know you didn't get to a Super Bowl. You came close. Am close. But there there are I'll put it this way. I have covered. Well, technically twenty-six Super Bowls half. Thank god. I won't be going Atlanta this year. Yeah. And I'll I'll tell you. Why? Here. Here's what happens. So you get down to Super Bowl week. And if you never been there before as a player. Yeah. That circus day that has been tempered a little bit. But it's still a circus day. And and that first day is sort of exciting. You know, it's like, hey, you know, we all these people, and it's. Yeah. So that first day is sort of cool because you really get the feel at haywar here at the Super Bowl. Right. But that's not the end of it. The real killer for these players comes on Wednesday and Thursday. That's one they have to show up for mandatory media media gatherings at their team hotel right now, I've attended those for many many many many years if you ever want to get a player that actually is in the game. You can't just sit on radio radio. Rony gonna do your crap. I mean, that's just a waste of time on radio row. You got to get on the buses early in the morning and bus out to the team hotel, and they set up the players, right? And they grudgingly sit there and answer question after question after question, and they have to do two days in a row, so all of this extracurricular stuff's going on. And then you get the game day. Mhm pre-game is extended and a half time is endless super extended. Yep. So all of this is new to a lot of teams, and it will affect somebody, especially if you've ever been through before because there is no experience ever in your career, but they will match a Super Bowl. England. Yeah. You know, I wonder what the records are presumed that are there for the first time is it is like a monumental change. I know it it it doesn't. I mean, there have been teams that haven't had a lot of experience of being teas, but there's never been a Super Bowl close to this. Right. I mean New England again is in their third straight Super Bowl fourth of the last five years, which is just ridiculous. I mean, New England this is the first time ever that New England is played in three straight Super Bowls have to be honest. I was actually I was actively rooting against him just because of them being for being there so often, right? I mean, I actually feel bad about it. Because why why don't we why don't why don't we want to see a dynasty like that something that's probably never going to happen. Again. Why don't we want to see them in it and be successful? And. And have I think the majority of people wanted to see candidacy city win. Kennedy depends. But just because they're plan the patriots. I'll tell you who really wanted to see the cheese and the saints. Take a brokers. This was the worst possible scenario for a Super Bowl matchup. Why? Well, New England they don't sell super Super Bowl tickets. They're they're done with that. Right. And the Rams are on the other side of the country are going to have a ton of people out of LA making the long trip to Atlanta, which by the way, it's going to be cold and wet cold wet and crowded and crowded last place, you want to be meanwhile, you had a perfect scenario. Said's Jeeves Kansas City and saints fans there in the middle of the country Atlanta's right there. Ticket prices for the Super Bowl are the lowest. They've been in years last year. The tickets are going for about six grand each. Yeah. They're down to four grand this year. Really? And it's going to go down from this point on. So there were a lot of people that thought this is the worst possible scenario for a Super Bowl matchup. You know, talking about New England and their dynasty. Yeah. It does. Raise a good question though. New England has done something that has never been done in the history of the NFL in that they have dominated two decades. You know, we have the bears in the forties of brands in the fifties. The Packers and the sixty the Steelers in the seventies. We had the forty Niners in the eighties where the Cowboys in the nineties, right? It is who straight decades now for New England. Yeah. So your perspective. Carey is a former player and as an NFL fan. Has New England's dominance over the last two decades been a plus or minus for the NFL. It's the hunt is one hundred percent in the minds because you sell this league, fills and it actually. Every year. They still this every year it is on entity every year. So I ain't different every every team has a chance every year. Like, you said that that's what they sell. That's what they sell you as as the consumer as outside personnel out the league. Like, you gotta tune in because anybody can win this league. And for the most part that's true for every other every other pro the NFC AFC, you know, the new is going to be there. And I think that's it's it actually it it hurts the game. But also from an individual teams, then point where we'll just talk about New England and the greatness, I think we also need to appreciate that too. Because like I said, we're not going to see that and probably never going to happen again this degree so you can take two different ways. But me personally, I think is the negative. Well. But it's good to have a villain is an end up. It is and the Wayland is definitely a Bill, right? Because Earl still a lot of people that say they have won a single legitimate championship. Yeah. I mean you've been caught cheating twice. So what's this and going back even their early Super Bowl wins? I remember the Carolina Panthers. They still have a lot of questions about what happened in that game. A lot of questions the eagles have questions about their loss. Rams have quest every single team. They played things have happened during the course of the game. Like what happened there? What what exactly are they doing? Right. And then, you know, the they show the before and actors Tom Brady, what's this training regimen. He's got going on right? Who is this guy? Who is this mystery guy bend? Nobody else knows about that. Nobody knows about that. You know, first of all he was not going to travel with the patriots. But now he's back on the team. What's going on here? Yeah. But they are the villain. And I I'm I'm not so sure I think what's going to happen when New England when this is finally over whenever it is five years from now. I mean, if we're sitting here five years from now and forty six year old Tom Brady is still in the Super Bowl. I mean, I don't know what to say about that. But whenever this does in. I think in retrospect, people are going to look back and say, you know, I sort of missed that having that evil empire involved seemingly every single year in the Super Bowl. Very interesting to see what the ratings will be for the Super Bowl again LA. We talked about this entire time. Yeah. The LA market is still not one hundred percent in on the NFL. We don't know get the Rams being there is actually going to change that dynamic even the Rams have admitted. Yeah. That they they were hoping maybe this would you know, sort of move along quicker. But all right. Well, we'll get much more into this. Plus another rule change. I want to get to and Alex Martinez is gonna join us on the other side. But right now, let's find out. What is trending Friday's here. Hombre? Hey, guys, what's going on? Let's go full court press was some college basketball and Duke was tested early. They survey defense register..

"We have our comic Titian committee. We have the owners we'll talk about the meetings and try to make it look like it's important. I understood what happens rate saints fans, we emphasize with you. We understand we're going to try to get this fix. We don't have an answer right now. But just the acknowledgment there. I think that's all they're looking for just trying to move on bass the whole thing. No one's expected to come up with this. Grant statement changed outcome. The game. It's just affect the disag- -nology. So we can move onto the big the bigger, which is I get it. But do you think that if he acknowledged it on Monday or Tuesday that those billboards are aren't still there and all the frustration goes next? No ill still be there. But I just feel like as the face of the league ones who talk about protecting the shield integrity. I think it would it would have gone a long way. If he would have just said, you know, what we were hit on the one other word of this that sort of bothers me, and I don't mean to belabor the point. But this does not go to the integrity of the game. I keep hearing that we heard from gale Benson. We hear it from Ben Watson. And again, I'm willing to acknowledge almost any frustration. They want but this is not go to the integrity of the game. I don't think anyone is suggesting anything on toward happened. Here was a bad. Call bad calls happen. They sometimes decide big games a bad call decided the nineteen eighty five World Series. This is not the first time that it has happened. I don't know I some to some degree. I think people are actually going a little bit too far, but you're certainly entitled to disagree. Everything's fans. I. The game itself is concerned. The Rams of preparing now the face Tom Brady in the Super Bowl Brady is making his ninth Super Bowl appearance and the Rams head to media Vela -bility yesterday. They had some comments about Tom Brady. And the way they chose to address him. I thought was pretty interesting. Give a listen. That was probably seven or eight years old when he was winning Super Bowls to begin with and now chance to plan with them and at the same time, you know, we do respect him, but you can go out there and do my best and be the best. I can be in hopefully, come out with a win one of the best to do it super competitive guy. He really like office coordinator on the field. We all know, Tom. Right. I mean, we all need to sign on those different about Tom Brady got gotta come out. And we bring our side. If. Talk of Gumbo or anything like that. From their Brady's played in eight Super Bowls already that is more experienced in this game than the entire Rams brasler combined. C J Anderson Brandin cooks Sam shields and keep delete have combined for those five that you see there on your screen. So listen, I don't know that anyone expecting bulletin board material, but the glowing way in which they speak of Tom Brady, we got a whole week of this ahead of us. Do you expect that to continue? I think I think they're really show respect to what the body of work that Tom Brady Bill put together, this is not the New Orleans Saints, and it's not a disrespect to Sean Payton and drew Brees. But you can't compare to. Okay. You tell one that's gone to non bowls eighteen years in another one degrees..

"Bowl storyline. Number seven is. Who's more experienced? You got a New England team went to the Super Bowl last year. But other than those three guys I just mentioned Wade Phillips keep to leave and C J Anderson Brandin cooks has been to a Super Bowl with New England. And Sam shields wasn't a Super Bowl at the Green Bay Packers. And that's it. So the experience experience is coming. Maybe that can be a storyline discussed from the NFL SuperBowl experience to be a lot of experience questions. He got guys who experienced winning at all. But they're on an overall inexperienced team that storyline seven. So now number six's gronk future. I mean, get ready for it. Are you done? Gronk are you doing this you doing that?

Somebody's gonna say something some stories gonna come out something about something about something that we don't see coming one year was derailed spray with Ray Lewis, another one it was something that somebody said on a podium, and we own the media love talking about a distraction because at that time about verifies our job that we're we're creating the distraction, and then it riptides into the question of are you distracted? Well, no, we're tuning out. How dare you? Tune out us because we're all here to our Super Bowl to what's the distraction in your locker room. We dimensioned know because what else are we talking about if not the distraction that Super Bowl fifty three store number five number four. What happened to Todd Gurley? What happened to Todd girlie girlie come? Okay. He got hurt. But we thought he was one hundred percent coming into the playoffs. And then now we're seeing CG Anderson more often than not we're seeing him on the goal line. We're seeing between the twenties girlies riding a bike in the Superdome. And when you ride a bike that means you're not hundred percent unless you're the player that's making everybody see that. You're running the bike to let everybody know the reason why not in is not affected. It's because I'm dinged up. I don't think girlies that guy but Lawler waiting for Super Bowl fifty three.

"For the second time. Throws. And now John fossil the special teams coordinator throws a wrinkle. Johnny hacker completes to Sam shields. I. Twelve for Johnny hacker. Yeah. I mean, the guy's already got eleven completions. It's not like, you don't know for a fact that he can't throw. I mean, you got your offensive coordinator your defensive coordinator your special teams coordinator, if you're the special teams coordinator, the New Orleans Saints like are you serious? You couldn't that you didn't think may a second. Oh, they're not going to do it on their own thirty. It's Sean McVeigh. He lives for this stuff. He's an offensive genius, right? Everybody says there's you got half the NFL right now. Who's trying to hire the next Sean McVeigh, you happen to actually be facing the Sean McVeigh. He's not even thirty three years old yet. Was he ten years old? When Tom Brady's career when he won his first Super Bowl some ridiculous. Like that seventeen aren't even knows seventeen. I think what's up bitch. What do you think? Johnny hackers passer rating is in his career one fifty eight point three no damn near perfect Gorno to one them. The all time career record Aaron Rodgers one of three one Johnny Hickman. Damn straight. And keep in mind. He's got a third like a tight end or something. He's not throwing Randall Cobb, and Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, dude, he completed that pass the Sam shield right the corner, and by the way Sam shields that was a relatively easy completion for Sam shields. Nice and easy catch. So I know the Rams only ended up kicking a field goal. But that absolutely kick-started that game for the Rams and got him believe in and, you know, keep in mind. In this game yesterday. Josh Reynolds had more rushing yards then Todd Gurley. Josh Reynolds had more rushing yards than Alvin Kamara. Okay. Who if you had Josh Reynolds outrushing two of the best highest producing fantasy players in the NFL. You won your bet. And you want a big time Josh Reynolds because he ran an end around for sixteen yards. C J Anderson who has been, you know, one of the bigger stories doesn't look like he's in the peak physical condition, shall we say he thought he was done for the year and steady, you know, the NFC championship. I thought going into the weekend. It might be writing on C J Anderson, but he only averaged two point eight carry as a team the Rams rushed twenty six times for seventy seven yards. The saints not much better. Twenty-one one carries forty eight yards. And see that speaks to why the Rams are also able to get back into this game because the saints couldn't seal the deal in the red zone. And when they did have the lead. It was never a threat that they were going to be able to run. Effectively. So the Rams are all day long could just pin their ears back drop guys into coverage run that that too deep safety run a lot of zone and in really double team. Michael Thomas at will. Because they didn't blitz a whole hell of a lot yesterday. They just dropped guys back into coverage. Ultimately got the pressure to breeze, and they had the luxury of not really having to fear the run. I mean, the saints ran the ball excuse me. They pass the ball to times as much as they ran it. So that another was another issue right there. Why the saints ended up coughing up this game? I mentioned Todd Gurley for carries for just ten yards into just for some reason Todd Gurley just hasn't been himself. And I know he got injured in the second half of the year they tried to arrest him. Now, he's got two weeks off for the Super Bowl if they hope to beat the patriots on Super Bowl Sunday Todd Gurley is going to need to play a role and figured okay? So he's not running the ball. Oh, he's getting catches out of the backfield Alvin Kamara eleven catches ninety six yards. Drew Brees used them all day. Todd Gurley one catch three yards. Austin Carr had more receiving yards for the saints. Then Todd Gurley did for the Rams L. C J Anderson. Sam shields had more receiving yards. Todd Gurley did yesterday. And then this was kind of a cool thing actually forgotten about this because Brandin cooks I feel like play for like nineteen cents. But remember the saints actually drafted cooks and then traded him away. So this was saints cooks return to the by you and all that he actually had seven catches for one hundred seven yards are hundred five yards. Yeah. Seven four zero seven and then he catches with the game at twenty two ten. They get the swing. Pastor Brandin cooks for twenty five yards and that keeps them going. And this was this was the one time that they didn't run that eleven personnel. Which is the one back in one tight end. They had Gerald Everett. Antilock he'd be out there. They had the double tights. And then they ran that swing past Brandin cooks. It was a nice throw by Gough high percentage. Throw for him. You know in cooks. I mean, hey, if you're going to have a guy. Why run a little swing pass? Like that cooks is going to be the guy that you think could get that separation. If you're not gonna throw it to Todd early. I mean, you know, the other guy that's pretty good on those swing passes. You know, the guy that was like the MVP that guy. Did he win the NFL? No. He didn't win the NFL MPP. Oh, that's right. He was Adam Copeland. Nice fantasy football focus MVP last year. That's what it was either way. I knew it was a very prestigious award. Okay. All right. And then this was one play where Sean McVay I thought kind of didn't look very Sean McVay esque they get down to the goal line. Now, I get it. You're down three. You got a fourth and one fourth and goal from the one on the saints one yard line your down three. I could totally understand kicking the field goal there. Like, you can't come away empty-handed. But the other side of it is you're the same coach that like, you know, through a fake punt in the same coach who's got this dominant offense and you've got hot girly. But you say, you know, what? Let's not go to for a four point lead. Let's kick the field goal. Let's tie game. I don't know. I thought that was interesting to me how.

"There's a kid in e you saw the tight end for New Orleans dropped the pass, right? What if he catches them? Or a seven nothing instead of three nothing. Right. What if thirty four for the saints tackles Sam shields, and they get the ball at the twenty five yard line. What if that what if the official right into my point? Hang on what if the official which again, he missed the call for the against the saints. What if the official who missed the face mask on Jared Goff Paul's that penalty and the Rams going and score which they probably would because they'd have it I down. Now, it's twenty four twenty. How does that change things? My point is is that there are so many plays throughout a game. I understand that that particular point. It's like parkey the bears missing a field goal. But there was a million plays before that. There's there's seventy offensive player for the saints in sixty nine defensive plays for the saints. They got an interception at the fifteen yard line of the Rams. They're up six nothing when they should have been fourteen nothing. You can debate this forever. There are missed calls all over the field. But if you take all the. And if you take one call in that context and say that cost them the game because that's the debate. Right. That cost them the game. But what about everything else that happened to that point? There were missed calls missed plays all those things the sink shouldn't even have been in a game with the Rams. Would you agree with that? It shouldn't be. You're taking away from the second. Don't no matter. What happened? This is where the game was at at that point. So the fact that they missed the call. Nothing matters. What happened before that? You're you're taking. Okay. So it's okay. That they made. No, no, no. It's not. Okay. I'm not. I'm not saying, it's okay. And then that leads into my. To the point where you're going about about the extra referee referee isn't just some guy standing around saying. Oh, this or that. You're talking about it takes three seconds for us watching the game to understand the penalty or not right? So it would take three seconds for that. Extra. Wait a minute NFL replay is taking three seconds. No, I'm saying you say it takes it takes a couple of seconds for us watching the game understand if that was a bad corner. Right. If you had extra referee watching the game, right? And he can call down. And say, bro. Wrong. Call April break on. Hey. You miss that? Joe? What are you doing? Do you want? Let me ask you this. Do you want every call you want every call? No, not at all not at all. But you can't have such agrees. Things happening. Is that is so wrong. No. I'm not look, I it's not a math equation. It's it's not about being right or wrong. I totally respect. I respect your viewpoints. Thanks for the call. I I completely one hundred percent respective you point. I get it. I really do. It's a horrible call. It's an egregious call. And now a reactionary way the way we do it in sports is now he is going to be something that they're going to review, but if you're going to review defensive pass interference. Then you have to put defensive holding on there which happens nearly every play if you're going to hold a defensive player accountable. And you gotta hold the offense a player accountable now we have. If you have opioid, then you gotta have picks. Like in the Kansas City game where Sammy Watkins went right down the sidelines. It was clear pick. So now picks are going to be called. Did you see where I'm going? It's going to be every single play. And what's being talked about is a guy with a pair binoculars. Mike Pearse said this morning with Gary and Larry guy with a pair of Benach. This is just gonna have a button he's going down. Yeah. We miss that one. Yeah. We miss that one. Yeah. We missed that one. I don't want that. I don't need to live in a perfect world. This one was bad. I give you that. But again, the where we have the disconnect or the disagreement, and I'm cool with it because I get it. I get what you're saying that if you miss if you say that you need to correct one then you have to correct them all. You have to correct. The fact that Jared Goff had at a clear facemask. What about that? They kicked a field goal on that one. Instead of scored a touchdown. Now, it's twenty four twenty. How does that change things? I don't wanna do that. Why not? They missed a clear facemask all they missed it. They missed it. So you gotta get that one. That one's gotta be revealed, doesn't it? And then my whole point. Is there seventy plays again? It's like life. It's somebody saying t's I got here. Because of that one thing this did it to me, this guy fired me this girl did me wrong. This this this this this one hundred thousand things in your life to end up where you ended up. That's what happens at a football game. Seventy offensive play sixty seven defensive plays. That's what happened with the saints that tight end for the saints eighty-five Arnold. He catches that first touchdown. It's right in his hands. You're a professional catch the ball. It's seven nothing. Second possession. You get an interception. Another fuel going up six nothing. You've dominated the game. These are all plays the saints could have and should have made. I add that to the equation. You don't have to. I I'm okay with it. I'm okay. But I'm simply saying the Rams didn't even know where they were for the first quarter was like me drunk on a Saturday night. What what they couldn't hear Jerry Goth is running out to the sideline. Todd girlies hurt. How many more things do you want to go your way you should? Should've won the football game. That's all I'm saying. I'm taking it as the whole ball of wax. And you may not and that's fine. You're scooping out a little piece of it. I'm simply saying that as a whole. It didn't come down to one play for me. It came down to about ten. It came down to a mistake on a fake punt. They get that ball back. They're up twenty to nothing. Arnold catches the ball. They call the the face mask on Gough all those different things happen. And so it's overly simplistic to me. To say that one play cost them when there were ten other plays. That could have been called differently done differently in that game. That's all. And then again, I'll say this. This is a fair debate. If you wanna if you wanna say, you're crazy, that's fine. But remember they did get the ball in overtime shouldn't have gone to overtime. I get it. But they got it. They got the ball. Brady. Got the ball. Scored a touchdown. They went to the Super Bowl breeze. Got the ball. He threw an interception. They had chances. They did. The medicine Petaluma high bat. Good. My suggestion would be. On calls. About that. The two calls for a challenges. Yeah. Right. You get one penalty challenge. So you can either do to players and or or one penalty, okay? I mean, it's a total of two. Yeah. Sure. Doesn't go anymore, but you can use it. Anyway. Get to play like read could have done that. With the passenger. Passer on Tom Brady. One play. I think it was in the fourth quarter. Yeah. Yeah. Horrible. Right. Right. All the fiber said, I'm just feeding that penalty call you want. And that's it. Again. It's over doesn't matter. You lost? It you blew it. Okay. That's fair. You know, that might be a solution. Thanks for the call. I appreciate it. Anyway, cambier. That's fair. That's fair. All I'm saying is I don't want a cavalcade of challenges on every penalty because things are going to be missed. I get it. But if you if you watch a game, especially if you watch like say, the all twenty two film every once in a while there's holding on just about every passing play you could debate pass interference. By the letter of the law in a lot of plays. You could debate offensive pass interference on a lot of place. Push off. You could absolutely positively debate pick plays constantly again. Kansas City ran one last night. And the reason why you can do these things. New England runs them all the time on one of the third down plays. I can't remember this specific third-down play. But one of the trail plays where Julian Edelman basically had somebody in front of him run interference on one of the third downplays. That's a pick play. You just have to be. I guess. Strategic in when you would do something like that. In other words, you wait until the other team scores a touchdown or you get a fifty yard PI against you or something like that. And it just becomes a strategic thing that you can use. I'm not a big fan. I'm still not a big fan of it. But in that context, I guess I could live with something like that. Now, here's would have been the interesting debate as well would Sean Payton have waited if he forgot the caller's name. But. Would Sean Payton have waited to that point in the game to throw his one flag? So he could challenge a call. Maybe maybe not and then the debate would rage on. But it's not a bad idea. And we can't be our Brent Jones at five thirty. I I'm excited to get a are interested to get a player perspective on this whole thing. Because again, we played this little bit earlier Cam, Jordan. Really good defensive lineman out of Cal. Talked about the officials after the game was pissed. I would imagine that most not fans because we're different we hold onto plays and games for ever. Like, I said raiders hang onto the unit. Whether it's the talk, whether it's the immaculate deception 49ers fans, hold onto a number of things fumbled punt against the giants, etc. Etc. You hold onto a lot of different things players have to get over things quickly. That's just the way that they do it. They have to process things. Baseball players have a game. The next day football players generally have game to get prepared for the next week. Same with NBA players. They gotta get moved. Athletes half the move on fans. Don't and we generally don't. So saints fans will never forget that play. I would imagine that. If you ask a player one of those players on the on the saints, and while they're still not happy about it. Most of them go. You know what I played the game over in my head. I didn't sleep a minute last night. I should've done this this and this. Mike is and pleasant and hi, Mike. John. I completely agree with you. I couldn't I couldn't say this any clear, but I think a solution would be to hire have avenue facial for every single player on the field watching every single thing that they do. So we can make the game five and six hours long time that it takes today. The fact is the raiders got the holy roller which fifty three people complained about that. But they also had like you said the tuck rule was in there..

"To the confidence in the players. And I know you're next question's gonna be. Why didn't you go for it on the fourth down then? But I think more than anything it was that we needed a little bit of momentum. And we felt like if the look presented itself. Gary we were gonna take it. Sam shields did an excellent job running a good route Johnny delivered a ball right on the money. And even though that didn't end in a touchdown. We ended up getting some points. And I thought that just kind of gave us a little bit of life with the way that things were going. It was so aggressive and risky. But it was the perfect. It's call in that spot. They needed something to change the momentum going, h I it it. It felt like a shot of life. So Sean McVeigh was aggressive early. And I thought it was great. He was people were criticizing him for being passive late and settling for a field goal. I'll get to that in a couple of minutes. I thought that had some hidden genius. I I liked that. Actually, I did not want them to go for it. And finally the Superdome was apparently louder yesterday than the Rams anticipated. We talked about their fly. Sloppy first-half. Also had some communication issues. Saints fans brought the kind of noise that shook water bottles and collapsed ceilings and after the game spoke about how it affected the game. And I. The first two drives were tough the first three and outs. When I didn't have my helmet. And then the second drive going out again. And I think the one whichever one hundred with interception. Those were tough. I mean, there was disorienting loud. But we fought through it wasn't loud enough. I guess. Very monotone Jad there at the end because they didn't end up coming out with the win. But that place was insanely loud. Everyone was complaining about the whistle monster. As a viewer. It was just. Irritating. That's what it is. They actually they're actually was parts of the building that we're coming down because of how loud, it was you could you could sense it, and they look complete very we have pictures of that. Yeah. That's the Superdome coming apart. You could sense. How disoriented is what? To tell you the Rams could go on the road playback.

"And I agree with you that that saints got caught a little flat foot in that one surprise me because it felt like like you said, Sean McVay and fossil. They call one of these seemingly every game. And it felt like that was the ones that they had to get a spark. They did it and by the way credit, Johnny Hecker. The throw was perfect Sam shields made a nice. Move to get into the extra yards to get that first down. It was the perfect call in the perfect spot. But you could almost feel it coming because they had nothing going on. Yeah. In a perfect play perfect spot. And the fact that the defense coordinator, I mean, I'm sorry special teams coordinator trust Sam shields in that situation because he's a defensive back defensive backs. Typically can't kick in a pun or throwing it in a pundit throwing. So you got a planet. Throw it to a defense back on a wide receiver play. They held it at work out for worked got sound. And if you look at a lot of games, not a lot of games. But if you look at the two games a lot of things work a lot of things worked in a lot of people's favourite even New England Patriots. If you watch that game from yesterday a lot worked in their favor. But I knew Tommy you ain't gonna be Tommy boy Tommy Wayne having that even though I felt I picked the Kansas City Chiefs to win the game. Tommy, boy, you got you can't go against that alert my lesson. But the good thing about is. I bet any real money. Yeah. No. It was I had the patriots. But that's another story for another day. They got off to that hot when they were head fourteen and nothing, and they looked like they were just rolling. And they by the way, Tom Brady throwing a pick in the end zone. It just it felt like that game was dominating that the patriots were completely in control. And then all of a sudden Patrick Mahomes, morphed back into the MVP candidate all over again. He was selling it in that fourth quarter key. I mean, the twenty four points in the fourth quarter just a remarkable remarkable performance by him. But it's just Tom Brady's the best that's ever done it. And you knew if they got the ball. I in overtime. You knew they were going to go down and get a touchdown. No. I knew it because they were already the momentum tying it up into. I just I I couldn't you know, it was one of those deals where every single time. It was interesting, but we had a referee problem in that game. You have where? The defense alignment struck Tom Brady and showed a pad and got a reference or call. It was crazy. Yes. Struck is a strong word. Early. Touched them, you're raised breathed on. I mean, it's it's look this is I guess we see in the NBA all time star players get calls, and I guess Tom Brady gets the Michael Jordan LeBron treatment that if you even look at them you draw penalty. Yeah. Patrick Mahomes got hit. Nobody said anything. So he's only in the second year in the second year. And and you're right about that. I take me back to my playing days. I like to always reminisce I was playing against the Cincinnati Bengals. And it was third in twenty five in a referee. Stay ran down the field at about thirty yards. And I show guided to turned around. It's nice to be. Eight year in the league, right? Like, yeah. You're good with us key. Yeah. No, you stripes. You had your stripes in the league they were gonna let you get away with something like that. That was called was a weird one. And then of course, you had the Tom Brady on a tip pass. It was an interception and felt like that was going to be the game because the chiefs we're going to sit on it in default, lined up off sides just for the life of me key..

"Play in the third quarter. You came back in The Fourth Way, you heart. What happened? No. Dan, play good to be in there. Within their. Hey, everybody helped me down. We all held each other. We just we just got it done. We just got it done. I mean, if you were to tell me that Todd Gurley barely gonna play because he was ineffective. What if I told you and they're still going to win the game? Now he had three targets in one. Catch. The other two dropped one went through his hands. It was picked off the other one. He dropped on one of the very few blitzes that wasn't blocked. Well, it was Todd Gurley who didn't block it. Well, he didn't pick up the blitz. Very well because it's not like C, J Anderson lit it up. He ever point eight yards a carry. So he wasn't lighting it up either. Nobody was but he was doing better blitz. Pick up. Mike the blitz pickup by the Rams in this game. I thought was on I thought that Saint should stop listening. I said you're wasting people blitzing unless you were going to bring more numbers than they had which is something to win. The will do, you know Casey with zero coverage they'll bring more than you have the block, but just normal when you're bringing a guy or two extra the Rams, I just go back to those old blitz pickup drills that I used to. When we used to do in practice when you actually hit, and it was like almost full go the intensity of those. That's when backs are learning where where the pick up the blitz and the line is learning whose blitzing and who to pick up and how to how to pass off any kind of stunt what the the Rams almost dinner to perfection. They were unbelievable between the line and the backs on picking up the blitz. You saw in the second half the benefit of a lot of that Rams tempo. And how long some of the drives were because it was when they got that saints defense gas, and they're going out there, and they're trying to go through their checks and they're trying to blitz when they get the appropriate looks. But you saw those guys were dragging so much that the tells on the blitzes became obvious and Gerry Goffin, the Rams were using enough of the snap count on that information. It became pretty obvious where it's coming from blitzes are great. But when you know exactly where and when the blitz is coming from it becomes awful easy to identify protect and be distribute the ball where it needs to go all of that is true. But this game changed. On a play and a call that had nothing to do with any of the offensive stars for the Los Angeles. Rams. And that was the fake punt Johnny Hecker vote, by the way might be the greatest passing quarterback a passing punter of all time. He's unbelievable. But again, I think it was thirteen enough of that time, and they were stuck. They couldn't get anything going. And they were just about to kick it back and Hecker comes up with that throw who by the way Sam shields. Unbelievable. As a as a defensive back turns and turned the defender around and picked up the first down. He's going to be all over his is receivers of practice after that has everyone will remind you. He did play some wide receiver before switching over to that too defensive back. Yeah, they were down thirteen to nothing with fourteen twenty three left in the second quarter. And that got them going. Here's Tom Jackson saying that was the key to the game realizing had to do something to turn the momentum for his football team. He did that and Jerry golf really took over that football game with. Without benefit of an outstanding run game. The runners did not do today with they had done for most of the season. Here's the other little tidbit. You can take away from this that I did not know until I read a tweet from dean blandino on when you set up in punt formation and you throw a pass like that the outside offensive players the gunners. They called there's no pass interference. Yeah. If you're a defender you can mug him. Yeah. They could've mug shields and hit him. And there is no pass interference. Because it is set up like a punt. And they're like garner and guys can come up come up and play the governor's press. So you can mug him. And if they fake punt and pass it it is not interference. Yeah. But that's the beauty of it. Because I mean, they gave him a free he free. It's exactly right. They gave him for. He never even when he stopped and turned around. It wasn't the defender had to be seven yards past. So obviously it has to be set up, right? Because a lot of times you'll see two guys out there. And if that was out there, they obviously would not have it. So it was on not only was there one guy, but he was playing off of them. So there you go the little comeback route and Hecker now, I believe. Leave is twelve of twenty completing passes on fake punts with eleven going for first downs. I mean, that's incredible. Paul. I wore the shirt today for any watching on ESPN news.

"sam shields" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"And all the guests that are joining us today are joining us via the shell Pennzoil performance line. Bobby carpenter here, myself, Rachel Lindsay, and we've already got somebody on the shell Pennzoil performance line. We had ESPN NFL nation Rams reporter Lindsey theory. Joining us on this show Lindsey welcomed the football frenzy. Thanks for having me Lindsey. That was quite a game. I can only imagine what it was like to be there as we were watching it here in studio. I mean, just starting off what was the atmosphere like as the Rams stunned the New Orleans Saints and their fans on their home field. Yeah. Through throughout the game. I made this was the craziest atmosphere I've ever seen. It was so loud. You couldn't even hear yourself think. But then went onto the Rams lined up to kick that field goal reached new heights and the minute that ball through the uprights dead. Silence. Obviously saints fans were stunned. That was followed by ton of business given that play call or that play on third down whenever the no call on the pass interference. So it was just a real wave of emotion here at the end between the booth the cheers, and then just the dead silence with that crazy ending. So let me ask you this because Todd Gurley who's been such a vital part of this Rams offense. Or at least he was for about the first thirteen games since that knee injury today. Only four carries a believe for about ten yards. Do you think that the function of his ineffectiveness was due to that injury? No, I don't I talking to Sean McVay after the game. And they just thought that C J Anderson was working for them on Todd kind of had a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes early that pass it skipped off his arm. That was intercepted. He dropped that pass on third down, and they just weren't able to get going under him. And so they liked what he saw with TJ understanding you like the auction that presented for their. Offense because they are two very different style of runners. And according to Sean McVay, they just decided to kind of keep feeding CJ. And there was really no indication that it was because the talker Levy, which was an issue back at the end of the regular season. Lindsay. They're there obviously has been a lot of talk about that. No, call at the end of the game. And earlier on the show we heard from Nickell Robey Coleman who obviously was involved in that play and had something to say about it. Actually, he was shocked that that nothing was called were you able to send me with any of the other players or even a head coach to hear what their opinion was about that. No call. Yeah. Well, obviously in the head coach he said things are showing patient. It's a kind of a bang bang playing it happens quickly, and that's kind of where he left it. He's like I'm not gonna argue about the call, obviously, one of the Rams favor of players in the locker room. I asked several and at the same kind of vibe is that, you know, they're starting solar. That's just how it goes. Sometimes sometimes called go your way, don't go your way. I mean on the Rams have been on the receiving end of unfortunate calls this year. And this time they they got a big break. But have you say they're not really too eager to discuss it. Because I think they know they did get it big break on that one. Let me ask you this. You talked about the environment there, and how loud it was down thirteen nothing in the first half and still down at halftime. What did they do? I mean, you talk to anybody about what they did to change their philosophy in the second half to be able to have more success. The Rams that is against the saints defense that for the most part of the volume up. Going in the second are going into half time. They were able to gain a lot of momentum. By that touchdown drive. We're actually girly job with that six yard run on. So I think that just give him a lot of confidence. Jared goff's pocket they stayed poise. And really it took them a few series to kind of figure. I mean, it was loud when these guys came here nine, but this was just on another level. So it took them a couple of series to figure out how to handle the noise how they were going to communicate and operate in the noise, I'm so they really just kind of stuck to their game plan and were able to find a way to be effective with what they came here planning to do Lindsey. How do you think going into the Super Bowl? The Rams are going to utilize their run game. And we we saw what they did last week with the combined running with girly and Anderson over two hundred and thirty guards. And then today have only fifty four yards combine. And you know, I know you heard Bobby ask is there concern over girly in his him being injured. But what do you think they're going to do moving forward? Yeah. What's really interesting? I the C J Anderson, and he told me after the game, you know, athlete those guys combined for more than two hundred fifty yards. The bottom line though, is that today the saints had a clear plan to stop the run. And so they relied on Jared Goff passable. And that's what he did. So that's the thing about this offense. It is. So well rounded that if they stop the run, okay, fine. They can pass the ball. They're stopping Jared Goff. They're slowing him down. They can rely on those running backs. So I don't think they go into anyone game deciding we're going to run the ball. We're going to throw the ball. It's you know, let's just operate our offense and see what gives them what what what's working for us. And then once they discover what's working they're going to go with it. 'cause they obviously they weren't getting that much on the ground. So Jared Goff stuff it up and throw the ball. And that's what happened. So this was a much different game than the first time. They played you look at the scoring within the thirties and forties. This is twenty six twenty three including in overtime. You'll keep to leave didn't play in that first game. Did he talked about the impact with the team? You know, talking about the impact that he had on this game being available now. Well, I know that they were all quite excited inside the locker room when they kind of realize the final stats of Michael Thomas Thomas had more than two hundred receiving yards in that first game. And he had nowhere near that this time around. I'm definitely made impact. And the other thing you have to look at is that Dhamma can sue has played outstanding the last two games now. I mean, it took them to the playoffs to really kinda turn it up. And but he had an outstanding game Aaron Donald again. So they were like drew Brees uncomfortable. They were putting pressure on. They were getting to him and that kind of force them. Erin throws from you're not really cuts into seeing from him. But how effective it's been? He was only seventeen times coming into this game. So it's really just the defense being able to step up, and that that obviously helped the secondary's wealth today. We're talking to ESPN NFL nation Rams reporter Lindsey theory Lindsey we heard from Todd Gurley on the show talking to Justin Anderson, and he was. Clearly, emotional you could hear the quivering in his voice as he was talking about heading to the Super Bowl. What was the motion like with some of the other players and their reaction to knowing they were the underdogs defeated the saints on their home field now are headed to the Super Bowl. I don't think it really sunk in when I was in the locker room. There was a couple of guys like Andrew Whitworth. This is thirteenth season. And he was pretty poised and talking about what this moment means. But other guys just kind of had like he's wide is like they knew all season coming in with all the off season trades and acquisitions that they made that the Super Bowl is definitely the goal. But it was like why'd is of what's. Wow, we just we really did this like we started in the season. We're going to do it. And we did it. And I just I don't know that it has set in for most of the guys on this team. Did you get a chance to talk to potentially Sam shields or Sean McVay when they talked about that fake punt that they ran which really kind of you can say coming out set the tone for how aggressive that game was going to be. Yeah. I didn't get around to talking to Sam shields that Sean McVay obviously going into this game said, you know, we're going to be aggressive or we're not going to be reckless. And that is the same thing that he has said all season. He did make a joke. Because like, yes. And now, you guys are gonna ask me why I went for the fake punt. But then I didn't go for it at the goal line there when we had fourth-down which is obviously a good question. Right. But it doesn't matter because they won. But that's just John motto all season on on being aggressive and with his special teams coordinator. I mean, they'd come up with a lot of great stuff to have. Johnny hacker. Do he's a former high school quarterback. So that's nothing out of the ordinary for Johnny to kinda step up and deliver passing like you said that's a huge reception for Sam shields. Lindsey. Thank you so much for joining us on football frenzy. That's ESPN NFL nation. Rams reporter Lindsey theory and coming up next. There are some big plays happening. A big one just happened in this AFC championship gain New England Patriots versus the Kansas City Chiefs. We will discuss that more.

"sam shields" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"To Sam shields man that was bold. And it does seem to have galvanized. The Rams who were stagnant. They were listless offensively at the time of the reception matter of fact, still still to this point in the second quarter. Sam shields is the leading receiver for the Rams sim. Shields is a good twelve yards. Yeah, cornerback and it's all on that one pass from Jonny Hecker who for a while was rivaling Jared Goff in passing yards as well. So maybe just get into that zero off the scoreboard is enough to get the Rams going here. Still thirteen thirteen to three saints. On top of the Rams out. We're presented by progressive insurance. Guests join us on the shell Pennzoil performance line tweets in the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed at ESPN radio. Field gates is here. He's at field Yates, Andrew Hawkins is here. He is at hawk. I am at Randy Scott ESPN. We were touching on the Kareem hunt situation at the end of the last hour. How there could be listen all it takes field. You actually said all it takes is just one team. And that's just to to get a job in the NFL. And it gets signed by a team now that he's a free agent. But it takes just one more than that to create any semblance of a bidding war and drive up his price. Right. Yeah. That's true, Randi, and you know, obviously, Matt Nagy the the sound we played he's the head coach of the bears who previously coached cream hiding Kansas City is the offensive coordinator is sort of. It's sort of emblematic of how I think teams are going to approach. It's like, hey, we're going to do our due diligence. We're going to figure out what exactly happened with Kareem hunt. How if we were to sign him, we could insulate. Him and make sure that he is in a position to be a better person going forward, then he has been a stage of his life. I guess it's just it's hard for me right now. Randy, and I get it. We are a country of opportunity in the country of second chances in the NFL is many weeks many ways a league of second chances. It just it's hard for me to as of this moment. It's now just January twentieth. Kareem hunt was cut earlier on the season. It's still feel soon in my book for teams to be discussing the likelihood of bringing back Kareem hunt based off of the vile things that we saw on video and some of the other allegations that we still don't know whether or not those will be true be proven true. But you know, based off the allegations and based off of other behavior like it's possible. It is true. And it just sort of rubbed. You the wrong way is what I would say right now. And maybe I'd feel a little bit more comfortable, and I'll defer to hawk after this is maybe I'd feel more comfortable if the NFL had finished its investigation and handed out. Punishment? I because just from punitive standpoint that closes the circle that might make me feel a bit more comfortable with whatever interest. There could be or might be or will be in Kareem hunt. As a player, I have a friend named. Joe Thomas who always tells me ability, breeds tolerance Kareem hunt is young. And I do think it's going to be multiple teams in competition for his services. I think the Matt Nagy press conference in him answering questions specifically about Kareem. What happens is teams understand? There's going to be backlash. There's going to be so much conversation is going to be there's going to be protests of teams there's going to be tweets and emails and hate mail about whatever team decides the side Kareem hunt based on the video and like feel talked about the other allegations of other situations. But what they're trying to do. Now is when they answer these questions whenever you hear a coach talking about the possibility of it. They're trying to basically get your mind ready for things to come because he so openly talking about it now to me that signal that there's going to be multiple teams again in competition services because he's a young guy who was really really good at football. And he can help a lot offenses, and you mentioned Matt navy the head coach of the Chicago Bears. Who does go back to Kansas City, right? Like his year coaching hunt. As part of that offensive coaching staff in Kansas City on the Andy Reid, one one of the reasons I mean, at least one of the hands one of the forces one of the voices in those offensive meeting rooms that helped make Kareem hunt into the dual threat, you know, talent and tool that he is in offenses, and again, this is a ban who you cannot dispute was involved in a domestic incident. And in that video is there in that video is going to follow him and deserves the follow him through the rest of whatever his NFL career is. But it does sound like there will be more of an NFL career. That's the point because if Matt Nagy is in autumn, and can at least, you know, speak about him at this stage openly. It makes me think there are other teams out there. And that is the report from our own ESPN NFL reporters today as it pertains specifically to Chicago though, Tom Waddell, wanted to host of the popular Waddle and Silvy show on ESPN radio in Chicago weighed in on exactly how hunt would be received. I in Chicago as far as how would go in in the city of Chicago is not just the Addison Russell issue. But if you go back a few years with Ryan pace believe it was his first year. They took a chance on Ray McDonald and former defensive coordinator, Vic Fangio, basically spoke on behalf of rate, and it didn't work out. So while they built some equity certainly with how they perform this year. What a great job Matt did. And the job that Ryan has done to turn his own fortune around. I'm not so sure that it is. Something that the management would sign off on or maybe I just don't know that we're there yet. It's interesting. Tom Waddle one of the most respected voices in Chicago. So to hear him say that I think is really notable Randy. And and what I would say about the Kareem hunt situation from a football standpoint. Again, I am not at all factoring in what has happened previously. But just to analyze it from a fit standpoint what the bears need this off season is a running back who's versatile enough to do a little bit of what Jordan Howard does and a little bit of what Tariq Cohen does. They're kind of stuck in the middle. Sometimes with those two players. The answer is somebody like Kareem hunt football fit standpoint, kind of exactly what they need. Now. There are other Baxter could fill that need with. No baggage whatsoever. But again, like I think that we need to be reminded of something that hawk just said that Joe Thomas often says, you know, just the idea that likability. What was it specific quote ability breeds tolerated? Ability, breeds tolerance. And you know, sometimes time. Time separates things don't say heels of wound heal the wounds specific to the person that was assaulted. But how often do we discuss the fact that tyreek hill domestically abused his pregnant girlfriend at the time. Yes. Yeah. The narrative is not tyreek hill and his girlfriend. And I I'm sure there are people that support Kansas City that will say why are we rehashing this the point is that like at some point people people now wear tyreek hill jerseys and spades. They firm on Sundays a lot of people that want to see him win later on today. And I it just that sometimes we do have whether it's because of time or whether it become a player's ability. Or maybe both people do forgive in this world. And it listen, I've I've also heard the comparisons to Ray rice. Hey, there was a video Ray rice in Ray rice, never played in the NFL. Again, Ray rice was at the end of his playing career. Ray rice wasn't a good before the video. That's it. He couldn't do on the football field. What Kareem hunt has proven? He can do in. It's unfortunate. And it's sort of cold that it comes down to. Yeah. You have this on your in your history and on your tracker, comma, but you can still play. So we're all good. But you're right. I mean, it's ability breeds tolerance. But also results breed job opportunities moving forward. For someone as young as Kareem hunt. There is of course, the patriots side to get into this game. This AFC championship game as it remains thirteen to three in the NFC championship game. Saints on top of the Rams were facing a second in long with about six minutes remaining. We'll keep you updated on the goings on at the Superdome and whether or not field and hawk buy into Tom Brady and the patriots playing the disrespect underdog. Nobody believes in us bet against us card that and more. It's operation football this championship Sunday on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. The.

"Los Angeles ofensive Lyman graded, positively by Andrew Whitworth had one of the best games around the way, they used their wide receivers to block and chip linebackers and then get open for Andrew Goff Jared Goff. They really that game was utter domination upfront. I thought for the Rams this is about Aaron Donald trying to get to drew Brees one of the least pressured quarterbacks in the league and the big difference here. I think is Michael Thomas Dom. I needed dominated the Rams last time, they have a key to Liebeck, and that changes everything that takes a lot of pressure off of Marcus Peters. He can talk and. Yeah, paulie wants he's not gonna see as much of Michael Thomas. If any in this game, it's going to be a lot more to leave. And that means a lot less Sam shields as well. Yeah. You talked about the offense that wasn't just like a dominant performance that was. Maybe the greatest offensive line game I've ever seen. I mean, they had the most rushing yards in their history and Goth was pressured once in twenty eight dropbacks, which was the second least amount by any quarterback all year, you could not dominate more. And and just the playoff aggressiveness, and you hope they can repeat that if you wanna see a great game in New Orleans. It wasn't just the linemen. I mean, they were just kind of a nasty team. And you don't think of the Rams Naseem? I play the game. Robert woods knocks. Jeff Heath's block off cracks him on the ground. Next play Tyler higby cracks DeMarcus Lawrence on the ground. Roger Sappho had when you watch that game. One of the most dominant games guard can possibly have kind of embarrassing Jalen Smith, enlightened Vander in part of the reason they were struggling and getting pushed around so much as you could tell they were thinking and their young players, and they were trying to think about all the misdirection and everything that was happening. And it was allowing SAF old to just get these free shots at the second level. And if you're the saints, you gotta be worried. About that. But they do have more of a veteran linebacker group, especially demaro Davis that you would hope kind of his head wouldn't be quite as scrambled as the Cowboys clearly were last week with everything McVeigh did before the snap. The Rams six and two on the road this season thirteen and three on the road in the Sean McVay era. So this is a very good road team. And like you said we already saw it in week nine forty five thirty five game that you look at the score. If you don't remember the game that game was as Greg mentioned the game. Saints got way ahead in the Rams came all the way back and had all the momentum at thirty five thirty five. And then the saints did would great teams do was they pulled it together. And then finished off their team finish off their opponent west to your point. So you're saying week nine you didn't think the saints defense was a finished product or they hadn't peaked, and certainly specially what we just saw last week that points to that being an accurate comment. Is there a case to be made that it kinda averages out a little bit? It because the saints offense isn't playing at the level. It was earlier in the season. Sure. And I don't think drew Brees is playing at the level. He was earlier in the season. Certainly the offense of line is not playing at that level Andrews Pete in particular head four penalties last week. And we find out he's playing through a surgically repaired broken hand. And he's in a lot of pain. Now, he lines up across from, you know, dominant sue and Aaron Donald that is a huge problem for the saints right there that matchup Andrews p in the center that their center isn't very good either max under he's just average center. He can be pushed around I think that's a big problem. The Rams though when you look like they struggled to stop the run for much of the year. But they were great last week. But when you look at them there's holes in the second..
