NFL WEEK 3: Our official predictions for who wins this weekend
"So. I gave talk about. Obviously a game that still sits our my mind from last week. The Atlanta Falcons go our land Alcan's play. The Chicago bears this week. Chicago was to know the Falcons are all into one o'clock on Fox. Obviously, the Falcons. About that the shambles, the the. Disgusting performance that we saw last week losing a game that they should've never lost Dallas cowboys now going to Chicago bears team defensively is still one of the better teams in the NFL. Immature bisky while not playing. Ultra, great. Still playing well enough for them to win. If, you look at this game, you would think the Falcons will win because one of the Falcons do have going for them as they do have one of the better offenses in felt even to the two weeks you've seen that. And they're going to a bears team that. Can Be, offered to challenge America can be limited. So the Falcons you put up points. The game should be over now the falcons defense does have some questions, but I do think they would put voices should be enough to create distance in the bears it'd be able to pick up the whip. Obviously the bears are companies just gave a lot of confidence. As they should. To An older, start the season I mean. I saw some Falcon fans tweet about it. They don't necessarily want the T. Blues remember they're only to the of this dot over by any stretch. But people really what? Dad Queen Gone. And so. It's Cadillac Party. Wants. To lose. The ship but the Chicago bears going to three eight. Oh probably be one of the young shockers of this early season. I'm going to very hastily picked the Falcons to win this game. I think they they are the better team. Now whether they actually leads to the results on Sunday we'll see but I'm going to go the Falcons to win this game as they are the better team to me. I, Think Matt Ryan will continue his great start to the season. I think are often will continue to click. There are questions of Julio. Jones will play this Sunday I. Think he will. He usually plays to injuries when his Julio not move something now he did. Have a setback in practice but. You know I think. He should be able to go. and honestly, if he didn't would be great for my fantasy team either but I got kindergarten if I need to step up or racial gauge. So yeah. But yeah with the Falcons. Next game forty niners, giants, I've this Games interesting. Remember last week. The point is playing metlife stadium loss Garoppolo MOATS are. Bosa, Thomas they lost a lot of guys last week. And the. Giants team who? Looks like they'll probably be at the bottom of the barrel the NFC east. Especially after losing saquon Barkley. For? The. season. When I players were scared to play at metlife stadium because they felt like the the stadium turf in and everything was the reason for a lot of those injuries that they had last week when they played the jets. Now. I it's. It's interesting to see what it's GONNA be 'cause they're playing a backup quarterback backup running backs they got sued offensive Lineman. I still don't have Richard Sherman. You have a lot of injuries. and. So this may be a winnable game for the giants I mean, you don't really know what to expect from the forty niners this week. So it'd be you say here they of Jimmy, Garoppolo at least played to me I. Think you would be like, okay for eight hours I think we'd still be able to win, but we don't know how good the Ford back for Norwich backup QB may play. I mean, luckily, the void ours have a lot of defensive talent still. So it's not like older pleaded they have nobody but. It. Isn't as comfortable as A. But I would still in my right mind, go with the four years to win the game.
New York Giants Confirm Saquon Barkley Tore ACL, Out For The Season
"There are terrible injuries all over the NFL yesterday alone. Nick. Bosa. From the niners Saquon Barkley from the giants both suffered torn ACL statistics show that through two weeks nfl record twice as many significant injuries as last year. It's actually at least six players suffered a torn acl including just recently Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin Eleven, injuries to starters in the one o'clock games alone John Do you think these injuries have something to do with the fact that there were no preseason games. Well. For example, the Rams don't play any of their starters in preseason games I think is in the spirit of your question i. think it has something to do with no camp no real camp they kind of shotgun training camp and I don't know how you could make the opposite argument that it has nothing to do with it. I wouldn't tied to preseason games what I would do it to the fact that there was very little tackling. Yes in. The game started and the other thing is I know Kyle Shanahan the niners felt like the field wasn't ready like the field I think he played in the meadowlands and he's got play there again next week because he played the jets and now he's GonNa, play the giants. Players on both teams going down. So I don't necessarily think that the facilities were one hundred percent prepared either I think again, I think the spirit of your question is the fact that they fast tracked everything and started the season. Because of Covid is that having any do with the injuries I don't know how you could say it doesn't I think it has to yeah. I mean I I completely agree I mean between training camp and preseason games where guys at least get a sense for what they get a reminder of what getting hit is like. I think they're I think they would be better off. It is an extraordinary number of injuries and none worse than Christian McCaffrey who's gone for four to six weeks and his the stalwart of my fantasy team just loyal to John Ireland how about? Yeah. I cleaned your clock thinking Matt Ryan. But. How about how about Saquon out for the year? Yeah. Entirely out for the year Bosa gone for the with a tornado. And that means that the giants I. It might be a race between the giants and the jets who the worst team football is. The whole new. York City area has to just garbage football teams because the jets are a mess and now the giants have no running game. So it's going to have it's going to have after-effects. All these
San Francisco 49ers lose Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Bosa, Raheem Mostert
"The bigger headline from NFL week to injuries done worse than Greg's forty niners. Jimmy Garoppolo the quarterback going to be out four to six weeks with an ankle sprain juice is really bad on defense nick. Bosa. Likely. Horn. Seal. That's the season ender Solomon Thomas. Knee injury as well. Running back Brahim. MOSTER. He left the game after an eighty yard nobody touched me touchdown. He left he left the game.

"September eighteenth a couple of days before your New York giants faced. The Chicago bears in week two of the NFL season with the giants trying to avoid Owen to start looking for the first victory of the Joe Judge era as giants head coach. Giants enter Sunday's game as five point five point underdogs. Currently according to draft Kings sportsbook draft kings, of course, is an SP nation partner check out all of all of their work at decay nation. So but anyway, giants will be underdogs on Sunday as they will be for most of their games throughout the twenty twenty NFL season. Few things to to talk about today. Want to talk about the the remarks that head coach Joe Judge made earlier in the week in defense of quarterback Daniel, Jones? Very impassioned remarks that judge made also. WanNa get into the remarks at Tiki Barber made about Saquon, Barkley and Barclays Response to those remarks also will play for you a little bit later on in the show in interview that I did with Jeff Burke of SP nations. Chicago bears website Windy City Gridiron. As we preview Sundays action between the giants and the bears listen. Let's start with the Jones judge remarks listen I thought Daniel Jones played pretty well on Monday night against the Pittsburgh steelers threw two interceptions but the the really only unforgivable play was the interception that Jones through at the goal line at the end of of the nineteen play drive, which of course, took took points away from the giants took away an opportunity for them to take a lead late in the third quarter was really a crushing blow in the game. Especially for an underdog team like the giants to have a chance to take a lead late like that, after such an impressive drive after Jones made so many critical throws on third down ran for a couple of first downs. So I mean but that was a play that Jones? Knows he he was trying to throw the ball away but he made that decision too. Late he got hit by Bud depre- that ball had to come out earlier or he had to use his legs and try to make something out of that play. The could have perhaps thrown the ball at the feet of Saquon Barkley bad play but and those are the kinds of things going forward. We've we've had mark Scofield and dissect Daniel Jones a number of times. Those are simply the kind of things that Jones needs to eliminate if he's going to become a top tier NFL franchise quarterback if the giants are going to become a winning NFL football team, you come out of Monday looking at Jones performance and there's so much to to feel good about and yet that turnover leaves. You with the with the but because he has to eliminate those kinds of things we talked so much in the off season about his pocket presence about his pocket awareness about his decision making under pressure and those that particular play it raises that question again. So we'll be watching against the bears on Sunday, we'll be watching throughout the season to see if Jones makes progress in that area. To me, he's got everything else that you need. He's got the army's got the intelligence. He's got the attitude. He's got the work ethic. He's got the leadership skills. He's got the mobility. He's got the toughness. He simply needs to make better quicker decisions in the pocket that enable him to protect the football and not to. Not to turn the ball over in critical situations. All right. Let's move on to another topic. Let's talk about Tiki Barber's remarks about saquon Barkley. Listen SAQUON had a horrible game on Monday night? Not necessarily his fault? Fifteen carries six yards point four yards per carry You know awful night no place for Saquon to run. Guys in the backfield all night long on top of saquon pretty much as soon as he was taking handoffs from Daniel Jones. I. Think Eight of his carries went for negative yardage I think he was hitting the backfield on at least eleven of those runs of his fifteen runs. So really nothing that sake one could have done on Monday night to to improve his numbers the Pittsburgh Defensive Front one of the best in the League simply overwhelmed. A, giants offensive line playing together for the first time and listen. I'm not going write off that giants offensive line. I'm not gonNA say oh, Dave gettleman still didn't get this right listen yet a rookie left tackle yet first time center. This was never going to be easy for the giants. It was never going to be completely smooth I'm still optimistic about that offensive line, but it's going to take time and we saw that on Monday as a really good. Really established team simply had its way with the giants offensive line the. The thing with with Saquon that that has drawn everyone's attention isn't the rushing yardage it's the pass protection. It's the fact that he gave up a sack when he didn't recognize a blitz by Pittsburgh's Mike Helton and pretty much with on the block. It's the fact that that's not the first time we've seen that. tiki barber on the TIKI and Tierney show former giants star questioned Barbara's pass protection. He questioned his willingness to pass protect. He questioned his willingness to be physical and to actually hit people and he said that Barkley simply can't be a three down back if he's not willing and or able to pass, protect and listen I don't disagree with the fact that Barclays Pass protection has to get better. He has to be able to do that in order for defense is not to take advantage of him. Barkley knows it's a simple thing. If he can't pass protect defenses are just going to blitz every time they see him in the backfield on a passing situation, keep him in the backfield. Keep him from running pass routes and getting out into space. In making catches where he can get one on one match ups. And create big plays for the giants and if he can't pass protect well enough to to keep. Daniel Jones upright that's going to be a huge issue. Listen saquon responded to To Barclays remarks in his Media Zoom Video Conference on Thursday and he he said he has respect for barber he.

"Okay and then Then I went and met him and he's not tell you it's worse can't describe how excited I am and when you have a conversation with this man you can just look the look in his eye like he has a look in his eyes describe. What does this like like is Louise's piercingly? And he's really like everything you could see detail like even like what the conversation that you have when he tells you how the team's GonNa be. I was going to be the focus on what's going to be the mindset and you could see that you can you know that we have a guy that's GonNa come here and set the standard and And that's why it's important it's very important for the. The head. Coach is set the standard in the office coordinator to you know. Follow that message in leaders like myself Daniel and Ogle train all those guys into trickle down to the team. So we all can be on one one page and I think that's a takeaway talented gains estimates when you have a common goal or common theme that what's your wise team. Yes yes you are able to hold each other accountable for it I think that hopes for successive team. You already know that's the thing that we're going to set. They were closed judge. Yeah I I mean certainly since Matt Rule and a lot of folks in New York City thought he was going to be the guy and he had a press conference the day before and he crushed his press conference or like. I think this guide. You know obviously winning and losing on Sundays in the fall or Thursdays Mondays in the falls. What's most important you have to win the press conference? I thought he crushed so I just I saw golden. Take this tweet now. I WANNA play right now. I mean So were you there that day when you know I was not different. A press conference is that I think I was around town and I think the next day off just coming back into town that day and next day I went in and Just sat down me. The Indiana Jones actually sat down. Because judging you know just had a nice little talk how was ally this year You know obviously you. So you know the season problem to go to like and After two games Dj Kim came in. And that's the thing that you respected by the most you have a a sixteen year old vet WHO's to time every piece of two time superbowl winner? There's a future hall of Famer and to be able to have a guy come in and lose his job But still in Iraq team the way he did and still help them Jones away he did the show. You how much classy hasn't young player. You know you look up to that and those are things that you take notice a few more minutes left here with saquon Barkley who wins the superbowl. What are you got old-fashioned defense run the ball No you know maybe I'm bicycling running running back but okay I know where the game is. You know. Everyone thinks passing the ball and passion. Homes is unbelievable talent Kelsey Hill and they have so much over there But uh-huh forty dollars when the top two defence planet super. Well there are fifteen and five. So I'm GonNa go with the team. That has great defense and and they have a stable running back off on the ball and Jimmy G. who who's a heck of a quarterback and will Kendall as amazing tight end opposite have amazing download around but I think the forty niners and the the forty niners. They're gonNA win this thing. The chiefs don't play the giants next year. Do they I don't know we play the forty niners though right I I would like to be able to play this. Vote the watching. Let's talk about old spicer. Let's talk about What what would you bring to the equation here today? Ultra spice ultra-smooth You know for me. Everyone knows me. I'm kind of like a low key.
"saquon barkley" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Man Cave here in Miami starting to feel a little bit more like a super bowl super bowl fifty four. Paulie just told me me. He's betting on the Super Bowl. When's the last time you bet on the Super Bowl? I would say probably college. There is a maybe diners Denver Super Bowl where the niners are given the next thirteen or fourteen points. Check the NINERS I. Yeah I think I did take the niners too. I want but I'm working up. Prompt that you want to do you want to hear it. See we had Danny shared a great oddsmaker from USA. Today said don't do prop parlay and I'm trying to find out what odds even though I may not necessarily believe in it. I think this is a good money. Play where for he most are running back seven to one to be super bowl. Mvp Okay so you've got one hundred and you get seven hundred. I was GONNA put because if he's super bowl. MVP that means obviously they won the game. So you wouldn't bet on him without betting on them. The niners I was going to parlay the niners to win outright. And we're here to win. MVP The game Even though I don't necessarily believe that that's is going to happen. I just think there's a great odds play on a great and how much money you putting. I was GONNA put one hundred hundred on it. I'm trying to find out what what I would make okay. I would assume if the niners win. They're going to get a lead. Hold it and run for one hundred fifty yards. And it's mostly him isn't Tevin. Coleman banged up with the shoulder thing. Yeah but he's supposed to play So you're not going to go with George kittle at at most. If they're winning he's GonNa get care of the ball. I would think twenty times and once again. You don't have belief in Jimmy Garoppolo's because normally the quarterbacks wise looks why looks wise but not quarterback play once yes. mclovin is sort of a trend to go to the quarterback no matter what not not every year but I feel like you're safest is has to be mahomes and even though Garoppolo isn't featured I still I still think if they win and everybody plays. Well don't you just default pick the quarterback you've been in you know if you heard in your ear where we're deciding deciding like is that the pick it feels like that but you would have thought the steelers with Ben Rothlisberger against the cardinals and you lead that two minute drill any threw a perfect perfectly placed past us send tonio homes made the grab. I don't know how many catches homes had in that Super Bowl. I just know rothlisburger had one of the greatest two minute drives in the history of the sport and he didn't didn't get the MVP remember we were watching it at the bar the other day the highlight any Rosberg had great plays throughout the whole day shocking. But Nick foles one Brady One von Miller one one defensively than Brady Malcolm Smith FLACCO. Eli Rodgers now Smith now the linebacker for the remember. These Russell didn't even get touch the ball all the defense courts. How many points on his? I can't remember which team they played the Seattle Soup. Todd you remember you. Don't you're not even listening to us. Aw I was typing an email. Who are we talking about John? elway taking email back to guest that we have come. I know we're we're on radio upcoming guests in his just isn't Saquon Barkley. Something saquon Barkley. Okay you I had to do it right now. Probably could awaited up there to set you see. Those cameras and microphones are on a struggling. And you should listen. It's GonNa get a note from a PR person. I panicked Anik. Someone's canceling where there's a delay doesn't appear person know that you're on is would hope national show concerns about making sure everything's okay. Yeah I I I know what mclovin saying about the safe pick is mahomes Garoppolo for civil. MVP It is a safe but you can't make any money off it Most opened up his seven to one odds to win. MVP's down to five and a half so a lot of money's coming into him to be super bowl MVP because there's money to be made not necessarily that it's going to happen by the way we were talking about Seattle blowing out Denver. The Super Bowl. I don't like twelve year by that. You weren't even listening but I just end. That's what we're talking about depressing. They lost like forty eight. Are you listening into another show right now. I gotTA get some music in my. Okay Listen Lebed right now. He's very entertaining. Dad How the question. Well let me this shirt. I feel like I should listen to this. Laboratory did drop off some shirts yesterday for us pocket during the Yes mclovin. Why is the front row too? Cool to wear these lebatardshow I. I am really disappointed in Seton Hall. Mines blowzy it's like an extra large. It's very poppy. S that's my. That's Miami Mine's a little blassie too and it's also extremely white and the combination when my extremely Pale skin and these unbelievably bright lights. I feel like we would have to rebalance the entire set and yours is our face t-shirt. Yeah which I'm cool with super cool but yeah it's just. I don't really think it would've been the best look for right now. Paul you got the odds of the niner's winning and moster could be the MVP. Yeah my guy out West Montreal Max just hit me up. He said he can get me fifteen the one on most MVP and the niners to win outright so Hyundai get shoe fifteen hundred. Who would like to get a piece of that? I'm not jumping. You WanNa put put a third of it not jumping on that. Yeah does not gets hurt too bad I got I got chiefs. You gotta go cheat preseason. So that's why you don't pay any more you have to know. God I hated did gambling. Hated hated losing. No I even I just. I couldn't watch a game like just I even now. I'll have a hard time watching the super bowl because I picked the chiefs. Imagine what's going through my mind when the Texans are up twenty four or when the titans are up ten I'm going just just get to the AFC title game. So so you make a prediction. That's respectable I just didn't want him to bail out the way the eagles did. Yes Thanh you really making like fantasy lineups and doing during commercial breaks sportscenter. When I I I did sports center and this was during the NBA season? And I remember Keith. Olbermann was on camera doing his lead into a game. And I'm on off camera and I got my computer there and it was so unprofessional. I Remember Trading Stacey Augmon in Alonzo Mourning and Mookie blaylock was also in the deal and I was trying to pull off this fantasy. Roy Tryst Rotisserie deal while I'm on TV EH. At Eleven fifteen at night I did pull off. The deal ended up winning the League which is more important than being unprofessional on TV. But it would drive me crazy. I would get into fantasy leagues just for the draft. I'd walk by a room. We'd have these conference rooms at. Espn you could walk by. There could be production assistance. They were going to have their own leaguer. Could be coordinating producers. I'd walk by and if somebody was just starting to draft I would go in and just draft. I didn't care about anything other than just drafting and then we did. Baseball draft's where you had one hundred dollars to spend. And then you had to build your entire roster with one hundred dollars and that was fascinating as well of how much you spend on a certain guy and is that too much to spend on a certain guy it became as I was in. I was in fantasy rehab. Like you didn't know they had fantasy hennessy rehab fantasy. Do that when it's almost time for you to go to a highlights or read something on the teleprompter in doing that right before. You're on camera after pizzas. Something something like when you're doing an email during a show like that yeah similar you obviously multitask a lot. Better than I did. A couple of hands yeah. Fourteen Zero Awareness Princeton abandoned. You Call Zerorez Ladies and gentlemen. Let's hear it for Zero Awareness Secondly Eh zero awareness. If you're watching you get a chance to see another great piece of art by our street artists. RC who painted Kobe Bryant and he started on this a couple of days ago he wanted to know. Would we like him to paint Kobe Bryant. I said yes sooner. The better e painted a brilliant portrait Richard of Kobe. You can see this on Audience Channel Two thirty nine direct TV. We'll tweet this out but the one thing to know and he wanted us to make sure that we told the audience dance. The Butterfly in the left hand corner is Kobe's daughter who died in that helicopter crash and an RC does work for Disney and he always has a hidden mickey mouse in all of his portraits This one he did not He put the butterfly up there in the left hand corner to represent his daughter. Yes it's really surreal. Oh how he does it with spray. Paint goes when you see him start. It looks like kind of a kind of a mushy mess of like background. Spray paint and then it just comes together as he goes does and it's exactly the image. It looks like it. Looks like a photograph. He did Michael Irvin on Monday. Don Shula yesterday Kobe on short notice today and then he's got two more more coming up tomorrow. We wanted to do iconic Miami sports figures but Koby with that news. We wanted to be able to do that as well. So He's done a wonderful job when you you tell the story of a super bowl. UC starts with quarterbacks with mahomes and Jimmy Garoppolo. It's a fascinating match up because we look at Mahomes the MVP. He's been remarkable in the playoffs. and Jimmy still a little bit of an unknown you know. I guess we think by proxy Iras Moses. He somehow is going to become Tom Brady on Sunday. And maybe he will Garoppolo plated eastern Illinois normally not thought of as football power and then mahomes went to Texas Tech we sometimes focus on Alabama and Clemson Ohio state. La like these traditional powers. And you go. Well that's where you find your quarterback. That's not necessarily where you find your quarterback and now mahomes at Texas Tech and Garoppolo Eastern Illinois are going to face off for the Super Bowl and one will go down in history as a super bowl hero. So it'll be fun but when it comes to you know if Joe Borough doesn't get injured and ends up playing at Ohio State is he. Joe Borough winning the Heisman trophee international title. I don't know that but he got hurt at Ohio state and then he transferred and then went to Lsu. Not Quite sure because you think well couldn't start at Ohio states. LSU's going to get him. Alabama is to going to be a great pro. Would you think he was going to be a great pro. You can look at some of these guys who played with big time programs and then it's sometimes these Gardner Menchu Mike Leach said to him. Gardner mentioned was going Alabama and he was probably going to be a backup but Alabama and Mike Leach then the head coach of Washington states that hey do you want to lead the nation in passing or not because we're going to lead the nation in passing. If if you want to come here you can lead the nation passive. You WanNa go to Alabama go to Alabama but if you come here you lead the nation in passing. which is what he did you talk about Mahomes it? When he got drafted by the chiefs chiefs? I looked up a couple of articles this morning when they traded up to get him. It wasn't all flowers and sunshine. People are what are they doing. They have Alex Smith. Alex Smith is playing very good football. He's he's got them for a low price at the time. He was not an expensive quarterback. They had all his towel around. People thought it was a weird weird Detroit up for quarterback. When you had a quarterback it was not I know not everyone loved it quite pre- people didn't well? I can only go by what I saw in college. And and we've talked about this on the program. When I saw Patrick Mahomes was playing? I thought that guy looks like he's having a whole lot of fun and making it up as he goes along and he had a game against Oklahoma state where it was just back and forth and it was you know typical big twelve not much defense and I said I came in that Monday until the Dan. I I even told you guys to to to over to Texas Tech and Oklahoma State and gave you the channel on direct TV it was halftime and it was a shootout. I gotTa Watch this guy. I didn't know he could be the greatest quarterback in the league but he had a great arm had a pedigree with his father being a professional baseball player but he just never seemed like he was bothered by anything you can go back and see even more criticism the chiefs more so than everyone everyone in the NFL. Taking mahomes over Shawn Watson a lot of National People said Holmes has done nothing in his college career. As far as accomplishments team and Watson had done everything everything and they took him over a lot of criticism. mclovin there's a story that came out. I think it was meeting. Ansari was telling the story of Red v choose now. GM in Kansas City kept in the fall kept coming with these mahomes highlights and read said to him. But I don't see him in a Kuyper. Michele mock draft. I think you have the wrong guy. And this is the best player I've ever scouted my life. He's our next quarterback even when Alex Smith having all pro so it wasn't Nigeria. Was this guy who shot..
Vikings' Stefon Diggs Addresses Trade Rumors Ahead of Giants Match-Up

LeBron James Debuts 'The Glass Helmet Project' Featuring Saquon Barkley
"Couple of weeks ago. I upset the l._b._a. Community the bron- apologised colleges community lebron james suffers from fame and social media diction the aftermath lebrons. Hey look at me antics at his son's a you game i said fame as an addiction more dangerous than cocaine nate burleson and other members of the community rushed to the internet to preach to the world lebron. That is a good daddy. They take care of his kids. Well at the risk of upsetting. I'm going to once again point out that the latest of the latest it is example of the negative side effects of lebron's addiction to fame the thirty four year old basketball star claims to have identified football's most unique challenge and further claims to have invented solution class helmets players being assigned a helmet and do not have no voice and no one knows who they are because of the helmet and no one ever truly know on that there's actually a person inside there and not taking that seriously they will be seen by uninterrupted did and this right here is the farce glass helmet and meaning behind it is all these great athletes athletes that play our wonderful sport football will be heard and we'll be saying because they are at the end of the day they are people as well. They take these helmets off and they are people when they have the helmets on as well so when i first saw this. I thought it was a comedy skit. Get thought lebron was having some fun and then i watched a four minute youtube video titled the glass helmet project tackling one of football's most unique challenges. Oh sweet jesus. I think the broader series the bronze side kick maverick carter some nondescript former n._f._l. Player andrew hawkins and an artist artist are pushing the notion that glass helmets or symbolic glass helmets would liberate and humanize oppressed n._f._l. Players i can walk down the street. Be the star football team and nobody knows who i am because people don't recognize you. Ah as players were kind of looked at as warriors or gladiators right and gladiators aren't people who you remember their name take a lot of people when it comes to football they cheer for the laundry in the sense that they refer their teams more than having a direct connection with the players hopefully one day we'll see glass is home is on the
"saquon barkley" Discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show
"As the psychology of it, you him six, and you're tying yourself to this kid, and you better be right or else. Everybody gets fired. And I mean, you know, the work out there talent on this offense saquon Barkley at an ingrown, golden Tate stowing shepherd. The offensive line is much improved. Still not great. But you know, it's a real Hernandez. Kevin Zeitler pretty good core for your offensive line. I just you know, this is eighteen that you'd figure that they're gonna be there. Any train win games? Running the football with Barclay and playing great defense and that worked in Carolina with Cam or they had a guy who was much better quarterback than thinking. We'll give them credit for but had a very good running game with camping Utah. Chunk of it. And very good defense. I I don't know that even after using first round picks on extra Lawrence and the Baker nothing against them. But I don't know what this defense is really very good, given you know, the guys we're seeing on paper here. I I don't think it's great either. And a y'all have to answer the question what you get return for Beckham. Oh. Extra-large integral peppers and who's the other guy that? Good for you. I actually right. We'll have had to teach me like teaching named seven times on the podcast today. Yeah. I mean, I think. Yeah. I mean, it's it's could be taking Josh Allen six overall, maybe doesn't fix the defense. I just felt like they were gonna go just load up defensive players. Maybe try and make a little bit of a run this. You're using you lie. And I it just feels like everything good that the giants did with this draft is all outweighed by the criticism and the concerns about the no Jones six overall. So moving on in terms of Josh Allen just mentioned do you like the Jags taking him seven, even though? I mean, the strength thirteen was ready. Pretty clearly their defensive line. Yeah. Yeah..
NBA Draft 2019: Latest 1st-Round Order, Predictions
"And ladies and gentlemen, we have a new mock draft out Mel kiper Jr's three point. Oh is here with us. And we are looking forward to the draft. Mel will join us in just about an hour to talk about the new mock draft. But there have been some changes in the draft specifically one less quarterback. Now going in the first round then in mel's two point oh mock draft. So we have four in the two point oh mock draft with Daniel Jones from Duke rounding out of the last pick of the draft to the patriots in the first round of thirty two. There are only three quarterbacks now in the first round, according to mel's latest mock. And obviously a retirement might be a big reason why and the quarterbacks have changed as well. Right. As far as where they're they're going. Well, Cuyler he still has Tyler going number one derozan. Well in his last draft Cuyler going number thirteen to the dolphins. So now and this draft he hasn't going number one. He had. Dwayne Haskins going number six at a giant Kyle Murray. Going number thirteen to the to the dolphins. Drew lock going fifteen to the Redskins and Daniel Jones going thirty two to the patriots. So as you mentioned Daniel Jones now out of the first round, according to the latest mock draft by Mel kiper, just three quarterbacks Murray number one. The main says Dwayne Haskins at number six, and you start to hear reports that the giants may go defense was six and then was seventeen go quarterback. But right now twain Haskins at six and then drew lock sitting there at number thirteen for the dolphins. Does the only three quarterbacks in this latest first round. Yeah. Going to be very interesting because we know what the giants listen one thing. Dave Gettleman has made very clear he does not feel beholden to tell us his plan. And so I don't feel overly beholden to believe. A lot of what we're hearing coming out of the giants can't because if you've got a guy who's basic messages trust me, I got this. Well, then we understand he doesn't feel like he has to tell us the truth. So as we hear these things. Coming out. We also understand this time of year is about deception to an extent it's trying to manipulate the draft order trying to manipulate the opinions of certain players. So that you can try and put yourself in the best position to get the guys you ultimately want. So it makes it difficult to try and read the tea leaves it is although I have to say on cattlemans behalf. He said all of last spring saquon Barkley is a generational talent with the second overall pick. And that's where he went. Look, I think we all agreed. There has to be a quarterback in the giants future. Whether it's at six or seventeen trade now Cleveland, but it would not surprise me in the least if Dave Gettleman waited until the second or third round to take a quarterback this Dave Gettleman, he created that created, but he he made the term a more of a vernacular in the NFL draft hog molly's when he was the GM of the Carolina Panthers. He loves the big guys to hog mollies. And let's be honest. This draft is going to be decided outside of Kyla Murray. More than anything else about the big defensive lineman in this draft. The hog Molly is on the defensive side of the ball. So depending on your draft grades for your quarterbacks you could take one of those at six and then a quarterback at seventeen it all depends again on your on your draft great. If twain Haskins is highest on the board and draft grades. You don't pass that up. If you have a Dwayne Haskins drew lock. And whatever other quarterback equal in grades. You know, maybe use that seventeen pick baby can trade it up somehow to get one of those guys as I said, this always comes down to grades. Do. You have a choice amongst grades. Are you close enough in quarterbacks where if you don't get one you try and get the other? But we'll see we'll see, you know, one of the biggest changes in from the last two this for Mel was they had the patriots taken Daniel Jones a quarterback, and this one I serve Smith junior the tight end from Alabama going, and that would not be shocking at all you have really three out of the top tight end Hopkinson the kid from Iowa teammate, Noah Fant, and then Smith junior all three likely to go in the first round a three first round tight end to on the same team come on. And what would that tell you as we saw? The patriots jump into the first round and take a running back and Sony Michelle at the end of that. And now to see in the next year three tight ends going. We've talked about this. However, you want to split it. Last year were Quinton Nelson. Went in the top ten in the draft as an offensive guard. We saw roquan Smith going the top ten as a middle linebacker. The middle of the field is worthy. NFL is being built right now. And other teams are starting to catch up to what the patriots have done for years. The way that we've seen teams export that specific area and three tight ends in the first round would hammer that home not denying that. They are guys that are certainly probably more talented than usual tight end groups. We're used to seeing but it's also about value. It's why you see running back taking it to overall by the giants last year. I mean, the other thing is I think they're more interior linemen in this first round then quarterbacks right? Like, a not tackles guards and centers. There are more of those according to males latest mock than there are actual quarterbacks being taken which would be very unusual. So the top five in this new draft that Mel kiper put out is Kylie Murray. Number one of the cardinals Nick both the D N number two to the forty Niners. Number three. Josh Allen the outside backing backer pass rusher going to the jet number four Cornyn Williams. To the raiders and number five guy making a pretty big jump. Devon white going to Tampa Bay at five in the last mock draft he was number eleven to the Bengals now in mel's draft. He is sitting at number five number six twain Haskins seven Joon Taylor. The offense attack from Florida going to Jacksonville sweat, the D N going to the lions at eight Sean, Gary the D N going into the bills from Michigan and TJ Hopkinson. The tight end going to the Broncos at number ten. Here's here's what I wanted to talk to Mel about and one of the issues that I have laid on me big fella with with this draft comes, you know, some some point and one of them is there are few prospects in new first round projection who are making their debuts because of their combine performances. There are four guys who have jumped into mel's first round who weren't out there before again based on the combine combine performances. I don't understand that. I don't I don't understand that. If you wanna say. You looked at the combine to go back and look at tape of them. But to say, they're combine performance jumped them up that doesn't compute to me. Well, I think that's I think that's the assumption though, is because of their performance you went back and look and that. That's fair. That's why I want to ask them. How did this? Make you go back and study them more. Because if you're just basing things off the combine I got a real issue with that. Yeah. I I don't think you would do that or teams. But at the same time, you look at the positions of the majority of the players that would be involved in that. And I think this could be true for teams as well. It's interior offense. It is right. Three interior offensive linemen Terry McLaren the wide receiver, but when it comes to interior offensive lineman. You wanna talk about an area where the scouting grossly lags behind to actually great and overall draft. It's a difficult area for a lot of people to see and understand because you don't have the benefit of a lot of stats. You don't have the benefit of even the combine members necessarily always translating to production. So when those guys go and they paying and they flag in the model somewhere for what they do at the combine. And then you go back and spend some more time looking at a guy like Lindstrom who wasn't going to be a big name. He wasn't like, you know, Gary bradberry from North Carolina State won the Remington award this year. Like that guy was a stud Boston College was a middling. Okay. ACC team this year. So Lindstrom wasn't getting the credit. He deserved even being as good as he is. So you go back now, and even these NFL teams, maybe we're late to the party on some of these guys all of a sudden start giving them an extra. That's why I want to ask I just wanna make sure with Mel that because I'm just reading from the combine performance, and again, let's put a name. To those you mentioned McLaren the wide receiver who is one of the others. Chris Lynch reminder, you just mentioned from Boston College now. Number twenty one to Seattle Eric McCoy interior linemen going number twenty two to Baltimore. Right and the Garrett bradberry. The Senator from North Carolina State who is you mentioned one the Remington award is the best center in the country number thirty one to the LA Rams where they have an aging center, and John John Sullivan. And that was that was one of the things have been saying for the Rams the last couple of years that dynasties been built on the interior. If you land a guy like that good, Lord or you winning out it is. So we'll see how that plays out. Now, the one thing that I find interesting he he has drew lock the third quarterback Mel dozen his latest mock going thirteen in Miami. I'm telling you don't take out Denver at ten in Cincinnati of eleven in play for quarterbacks. I mean. Yeah. Denver made the play for Joe flacco. But John Elway has messed this up a couple of times with all due respect. I mean, that's just outside of getting Peyton Manning. He has not figured out the quarterback spot there at ten they might be in play for quarterback. And you have Andy Dalton with his situation with the Bengals and his contract situation. I, you know, I think that there's a really good chance that they could be in play with a quarterback there, by the way, by the way, Mel kiper Jr's mock draft not the biggest item related to the draft this week. That will have news for you guys. What more on that coming up later? This week

"saquon barkley" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"So y'all heard saquon say followed me on Twitter, right? Well, a lot of things I want. I wanna start preface this by saying the Commissioner still talking at his state of the state press conference, and he didn't really give state of the state address that the commissioners usually give any more. I think he's done that a while. He just says a few words about the whole city and then takes questions and he's still doing it right now. And we'll get to what he said he did in fact address several questions about the NFC champ game get to that second. You wanna put a question as to who's nicer sake wanted to Shawn Watson, both of those guys were able you know what I mean? Like, you wanna talk about faces of the NFL that everybody who roots for the sport and wishes for the sport. Success can go ahead and go into the communities and just be faces and be people. I mean, they're they're really really nice guys. Now. A really nice now. That's the preface that's the preface here. Saquon was not following me on but moments ago after he strolled off the set. He addressed the situation head on. And as you could see on the screen, I screen grabbed it moments ago notification saquon Barkley follows you so high. Hi. Thank you, Donna. I mean, you know, I'm I've I've been at this. I've been at this awhile. And I've been able to do a few things. It's my sixteen Super Bowl. I've got a lovely wife and married. Fifteen years got three kids as lot going on. But very proud of that. Now saquon Barkley follows me, I mean, that's a huge compliment in my life and my not following the show account. But that's what is wrong with that kid. I think it's bad guy bad character. Suddenly that's great having them here. Okay. Before your news update. Let me give you a little news update. As to what the Commissioner, he came out spoke very nicely about Atlanta. He's still talking. I will say this when you do speak to the entire NFL media community. There are many members of the press who have their own agendas, and by that I mean their own local situation, for instance, question three was from Sam farmer who asked about all the the California based teams three or four of them are playing in makeshift homes. We know the Rams are in the Coliseum. The home of the Los Angeles galaxy's with the charges playing for couple years. The raiders are now we believe are going to be in temporary spot well unit they stayed put where they've been playing temporary spot 'cause they're going to Vegas and the Commissioner basically said when asked pointblank sandiego an option. For the chargers. He said he thinks that Mark Davis wants to stay in the bay area where raiders fans are and did not say I understand your look now that yes, the raiders fans are in Oakland. The why are they going to they're going Las Vegas? But you know, what he says I of course, but so there really wasn't much of an answer. Their question too was from a local reporter here in Atlanta asking about what does it land to have to do to get the Super Bowl back? Maybe have it not be twenty five hundred. No, no, again, it's it's everybody's the hospitality. Here has been terrific. People are amazed. Honestly, you don't walk an inch in this town without somebody saying you you need help where do you need to go? Do you need directions? I mean, seriously hotel lobbies are filled with people, I got cheered welcome to Atlanta coming off the plane..

I'm doing great excellent. You know, it's funny this week. I heard I don't know if you heard this. But. Greg Williams who to me. Why don't really work in Cleveland locally in the week? And I have no desire for Greg Williams to remain the long-term coach Gregg Williams. I think he's about as old school is old school gets and he referred to some advanced analytics this week. And I almost was brought to tears Sam because well, I think I think that all sports need to have a good balance between old school scouting and new school analytics you'll so many old school football guys are so hesitant look where we are in baseball. Now. Right. The sport is completely run. Everybody has an analytics department in basketball and football is dragging their feet a little bit more in some organizations, but the here an old school coach like Greg Williams referred to some advanced analytics. That was that was wild for me to hear it must have. I don't know if you heard it. But it probably would've made you happy. If you did. Yeah. I think you're right football is behind baseball. And how that kind of stuff is gone, but everybody understands that it can help you how you present it to all of these people know, so head coaches are often the last guy to get on board. But it's because you need to present it to them in in the right away. Now, there's a ton of ways that say the PS database can help is those guys. But if you come to them initially where you know, something they don't wanna hear they're not going to buy. But if you immediately show them something, you know, a fancy pretty grasp the chosen exactly what they've been saying for years, suddenly they're all on board. So I think a lot of teams the league you're just starting to sort of see this time where the analytics guys or people that have been using the stuff within the Bill. Building for years are finally starting to figure out how to present it to coaches added presented to general manager is and you know, the guys bad again in front of the media. And that's when you're starting to see this filter out. I think it's been used a lot within the building for years already. But now we're starting to see those guys use it on a daily basis and get the headline stuff sent to them in a way that they're they're much more comfortable with gesturing at an and actually taking it on board. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analysts Sam. Baker Mayfield has had a tremendous season. As a rookie as put up some big old school numbers if you will. But when when you went from a pro football, focus perspective when you guys run the numbers on what he's done. How would how does he great out compared to some other rookie quarterback's of the past? Yeah. I think you do need to go to quarterbacks with a pass because he hadn't shoulders above any other rookie season right now. He's a top ten grade quarterback in the NFL. He's tense overall. Just one physician behind Russell Wilson. So you're already talking about it really really well graded player right off the five. And obviously pro football focus was very high invade your Mayfield coming out were the guy is the winter by for him saying that he was the best prospect in this draft in it really wasn't close to the next guy. I think so far. That's that is being born out. We have seen better performances in the past rookies. I think that twenty twelve season was a pretty incredible year for rookie performances. Obviously it didn't last because RG three in particular had a phenomenal season that year, and then tours and really hasn't been the same player since. But you know, Baker Mayfield is looking as good as we've seen any rookie quarterback. Look probably dating by twenty twelve season. We're seeing some really impressive play from him. And I think his play generally has been better than even the statistics suggest because you had one of the highest rates in the NFL right five and drop rates. And unlike most of the times when a receiver drops the ball, it's an incomplete passes. It's not doing that much damage to your passer rating, or whatever but Baker mayfield's have multiple assets that have been hit his receivers and my hands and ended up as interceptions. So those are taking a sledgehammer to operating over the course of the season. It's ninety three. Point four right now. And this is a season where passing is exploded operating ninety three point four is nice great at the moment. But it's his performance has been way better than that. We're talking with Sam Monson lead analyst pro football, focus Sam, let's talk about another rookie and that saquon Barkley who probably be battling Baker Mayfield for rookie of the year. From an offensive standpoint. There's been other good rookie running back but saquon Barkley make over two thousand total yards this season. How does he compare to Todd Gurley Leonard four nets and some of the other big rookie seasons from running backs? Yeah. I mean saquon Barkley just moved into first edition CFS running back rankings. He's the the number one guy right now through the through part of the season. He's been incredible. He's been everything that everybody who was championing him saying he would be coming out. I think he's been better than we thought. He might be there. The idea that he was a perfect running back prospect that don't think really holds up work holes in his game in particular. This tendency to to be a bit. Reggie Bush in terms of wanting to balance everything outside to look for that clay, but he's gotten a lot better in his first year at not doing that at taking ugly yards when they're there. And that's all there to be had. And it's still maximizing goes explosive plays getting huge games. Those are there. So he has been fantastic. I think again he's been as good as any rookie running back the receipt for a number of years. Really? He's I guess he's played as well. As Alvin Kamara did last year as a rookie on he's done more fulltime base. So he already has you know, two hundred more snaps than Kamara managed all last season playing that same kind of rate is Amari Cooper. Has memorial Cooper's play been much better. Or is just a the players around him made him much better. I think it's a bit of both, you know, playing wide receiver it so difficult to play. Well, if the ball isn't coming in your direction off the ball is coming in your direction in attachable manner. Having you can do about it. There's only so much fancy route running against air. You can do if the ball isn't coming your way. So I think we're seeing Amari Cooper was always a quality route runaround player that would get consistently open. And now we're seeing what happens when you target that guy. He's still a very good player and I play put up big numbers. And obviously, that's that's meaning that his greatest better because he's being given the ball and that talent is being maximized. So you know, I think that that was always there that that talent that play was always inherited his game. Even in Oakland. The raiders just weren't making use of it. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analyst. Sam. I know you guys today had an article about projecting Cuyler Murray's pro potential. I'm curious because obviously he's a top ten pick and major league baseball. He's giving compared to Ricky Henderson. He signed a four and a half million dollar bonus. There would have to give it back obviously at a even a better year than Baker Mayfield did this past year in college, which is hard to believe. But obviously, you know, people make a thing about the thing about Baker mayfield's hike, which I thought was over rated. But obviously calamari isn't even close those big as as Baker Mayfield. A what is his potential d do you think he could be a good NFL quarterback? I think he could be, you know, you're right people that the highest the big question Mark because people did make an issue out of Baker Mayfield. Tighter on Baker Mayfield is short for an NFL quarterback. But not, you know, it's not unprecedented. We've seen quarterbacks Baker Mayfield type successful in the past. They're not obviously, not as many as there are as you know, six with three quarterbacks, but those guys have existed and they've been good in the past. I don't I don't know that we've ever seen quarterback that is Kyla Murray's Hite house significant success at the end up, right? You know, he is going to be when we get the official number on him. If it ever gets that far he's going to be significantly shorter than even a guy like Russell Wilson. And you would be in legitimately uncharted territory. When it comes to that. Now, if you're going to do that, you have to be there has to be something else to say, well, okay. That's not going to be a problem because of this and his grading has been incredible. His is great this season at Oklahoma has been basically everything is as as good. As Baker mayfield's grade had been on that was the best we've ever seen from a quarterback, right? The best seasons we've ever seen at college with one of his own. So he has a level of the best play. We've ever seen coming out of college from a college quarterback. And we've been doing this going back to two thousand fourteen but we've seen some pretty good quarterbacks over that's fine. You know, we went back, and we also graded James Winstons freshman seasons. We have got Carson Wentz you got Jared Goff. We've got right. And they got all these guys and Carl Amari stacks up to those guys. Sorry.
Saquon Barkley leads Giants' destruction of Redskins
"Game here we can make quick because it was ugly saquon Barkley and the giants crushed the Redskins forty two sixteen all those points came late in the game for the Redskins. No Odell in this games to find you. He was ruled on Saturday surprise. Yeah. Still bizarre. You know, we heard about it. I on Friday when he was limited in practice, and it sounded like there wasn't a ton of information around it. But sounded like not a lot of concern. Either though exactly because they didn't end up on the pre-game injury report that's filed on Friday evenings. And then on. Saturday. We found out ruled out for the music fan. So it's hard to know because of the bizarre way in which it came about just how serious this is. But so stay tuned all they were saquon Barkley fourteen for one seventy on the ground with a touchdown for the Redskins. Mark Sanchez has been benched in favor of Josh Johnson. I think was quarterback three on the week, which is just ridiculous. And then he watched Madden to get to know his teammates. Quote from the post game yet. We're just like, well, he honestly like he was signed last week. When Cole McCoy was injured on Monday night a week ago. They needed a backup quarterback, Mark Sanchez. And so they signed Joshua Johnson have been with a team that less than a week. And he ends he's going to end the week as a top five fantasy quarterback a guy that wasn't on a NFL roster seven days ago, and I mean and obviously start this game. I'll listen a lot of it was just to be very clear about this much of it was in junk time against backups in very soft cover. It was of course. Total jumped pavers down funny. We're not saying like in case it was like injust Johnson. Ben name the star. But in case, you're like, hey, Josh the thing Josh Johnson's not a thing. It's a brutal offensive line. It's a law season for the Redskins. It's just a a look I think they're now at and we'll see we made it to week fourteen before Jordan Reed got hurts to he did he did he he made it over on the over under of wind. Jordan reed. Mike. Misery yet but foot injury. Obviously in a lot of pain had to be held back to the locker room. I would not be planning on Jordan Reed being available at the moment. I believe the Redskins have eighteen guys on injured reserve. We'll see if Jordan Reed get shut down for the year. It certainly would make Vernon Davis did Vernon Davis. Make your way beyond the waiver wire com, which you'll be out later on this afternoon. Nothing there's a lot of hoping that Washington offense. But there are also again, very few tight ends that you can trust. So Vernon Davis will be on the waiver wire column. Kyle. We have all racked our brains for the only other tight end besides George kit with two seventy plus yards receiving three three my best. Guess was Vernon Davis. Matthew, who's your best?
The Giants Actually Won A Game
"About the New York football giants. They actually won a game night. Football matchup against two powerhouses the giants and the forty Niners. Look pretty good about it around the pocket. Odell Beckham in the end zone Beckham had two touchdowns saquon Barkley look good look at this past there in the same. Twice in a row. Saw that one Jalen is there a little civil dark cloud. That is the giants season the silver lining is the person that ally shaking his hand. Nobody knows who it is Nick Mullins because the San Francisco forty Niners are not a good football team. They're not feel from my brother Richard Sherman. Having a play with this team this. This basically vying for top pig. The giants are talented group. Ofensive Lii in their perfect example of trying to build your squat through the skill players. Isn't probably the smartest way. Look dare division. If you were going to talk about who has the most talent just sheer touto question that USA giants have more than Philly, Washington and Dallas maybe combine. But why the last couple of seasons have all of those teams been better than them. Because he's not that good. The line is not that good the substance the lines, correct? And so for that. I'm not surprised clearly that Dale TD's saquon Barkley terrific sterling shepherd caught the game winning touchdown. But we know what's going to happen. Right. You know, it's gonna happen. Right. Cannot cannot break. Some news breaks news right now, what's gonna happen here. As a news happened bench. La. For the guy that ran over the cop. Big bench. Eli ran away just in want to do it. Because that guy had just gotten trouble have been playing attention for national media consumption. He's been in trouble with the law. Couple of times for some reason. We just don't talk about it. So I think later in this year sued they dream of Alah struggling he my stomach coming out of the tunnel. They bench. We know what's going to happen. This is last year allies last year in the National Football League. No, he's a man play as long as he wants to play in a different uniform next year. Yes, if he wants to play, well, I know a team that needs a quarterback Buffalo

Allies still hasn't blah, blah, blah lays man for less than two hundred yards. He threw for less than two hundred yards. This is see See it. it. We're going to be honest about it. That's what we gotta do pay attention to this kind of stuff. He manning did not look bad last night. But in knock anybody socks off ally. Manning. Completed nineteen thirty one passes for a hundred and eighty eight yards three touchdowns. Not an exception. Only sacked wants. And you just look down a list. And what does this come down to this comes down to a question? And as only a two part ants, what you happy about what you saw from Ila Odell Beckham junior saquon Barkley and a crew or do you find yourself sitting here today thinking that the New York Giants are the biggest idiots the NFL has seen in quite some time. Because the reality is that if you want the number one overall pick in the NFL draft, you don't go out there. Having just one win on the season and beat a one win eight you're battling for purgatory. You're battling for up two. You're bad. You're battling to be recognized as the very worst there by being the team that needs the most help. That's why you would get the number one overall pick this supposed to be doing. Now, some people say, well, Stephen they wanted as opposed to do I agree with that. What are you supposed to do if L Beckham was targeted eleven? By the way, and all you have four receptors seventy three yards albeit touchdowns, but Beckham Julia and saquon Barkley out on a field, you should be trying to win football games. However, if you wanna lose on purpose why you plan any of them. Why don't you bitch alive down? Why are you holding a traffic violation against kala? Let backup quarterback who the hell cares. Now granted I'm not advocated that he was right to break the laws certainly not to try run over police. That's just quite stupid. But let's be really what trying to run over to police lays gentlemen, I'm very very familiar with this route that he takes I'd take that route all the time four ninety five and sometimes they barricade or ward off these certain roles that allow you to get to destinations quicker, but take your leeann rush hour traffic, personally speaking, I think the letter tobacco quarterback has gotten a bad rep.
"saquon barkley" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"So that's my only argument, but the idea that they were going to take ally out, wasn't the issue and everybody said, oh, we signed saquon Barkley you get, you get a running back. You get your receivers back and that'll give ally that'll help. Upgrade the offensive line, and he should be held has been held. Not at all. They're still last year were one in five. At this point here they are again another bad season route. I'm not saying it's all allies fall, but if I was a receiver of Odell Beckham talent, I would be upset that this is what this is what I got, and no matter how poorly he plays. Nothing's going to change. So the acting out part, I get it. You can't be mad at him because this is who he is. We talk about this all the time. If you had a problem with him, what he you do last year went to kicking Ned and all the other stuff that went on. You could easily said we're going to get rid of them, make it trae. We're not gonna, give him the money. 'cause to me when a guy's loud skip prior to getting all the money, he's only going to be louder because now he end country security, he's gonna get paid. He knows it. The giants knew it and they're stuck with them, and he's going to act out for the rest of the year because here's. Another bed, New York, football giants season? Well, I'm gonna take a little step further. You say he's going to act out for the rest of the year. He's gonna act lot along with the giants. That's what this is. Money only makes you worse to makes you more what you already are and I look, I get it and people like, well, that's not the problem. Is he the solution? See, do your part of the problem. You're part of the solution, one hundred. If simple of that, okay. He's trying to get a team who gets inspired by doing that. That's what I wanna know who is inspiring who's he firing up because he says he did. He said what he's trying to galvanize the team. He's trying to bring the team together who. You know what's give if they were losing the game last night and there had ten for book fifty, five or two touchdowns doing the same thing can live with that even though he going up and bra. How good, but if only when he's not getting tier for buck fifty, five and a touchdown is getting a little piddly yard. The little thinly can't have six for four. Do we see him act out like this? So I'm not surprised, but the hairs the pain, and it's not all their fault because I believe, oh, they'll get the ball. It could help own antics. Just math just keeps us from looking at some of the bigger problems. He lamenting his of land, the defense. So you know me, I'm gonna look all over the. I look all over. They told this, this is what coach Belichick. Now I'm not saying that he's right more role, but this what coach Bela check tries to reveal that you get old on the job, you you always say. He rather give you a year or two early than a year or two late. Let's the branch Rickey and you're not going down the vinyl me. I will let somebody up pluck you. You don't you down the vital. Try to play our one year before you think you should. Right. So that's that's the guess, west killed all the money in the world. Canaan, courage him to do right when you've been well, mostly it's going to encourage him to to continue to derive yet. What got me skip if a kid throw the tantrum in the grocery store, you'll give him ice cream cookies the candy they get, right. They got to stop if every time he goes into the grocery store from doing fair tantrum. You were warning with that cheese. Why would he stop. But you were warned to be careful how you reinforce negative behavior, but he, they, they part of the problem, but allows a bigger part of his allies apart defense apart owning the little part, but he's a part of the problem. Yep. So what are we seeing at the position of wide receiver in the National Football League? Eight has become the most volatile position in all of sports because only wide receiver in the NFL. Do you have NBA like stars because they get all the highlight..
"saquon barkley" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"But he sure as hell is not helping. He created a major shit storm last week. And then today he was just acting like a crazy guy. Now he's done that before and I would. Also say this. The one thing I see in Beckham that's pretty clear is he's a major front runner when things are going. Well, he's great. He's happy. He's catching touchdowns high five. And when things are going bad, he's the last guy you want on the Titanic with you. When you're going down, you know he'd be the first Tosh you off. And right now you're seeing that say what you want about ally in again, he is a train wreck of a player. It's over and I said forever. It was a disgraceful pick to pass on Sam darnold for saquon Barkley and saquon Barkley looks like a future hall of Famer still a godawful pick, but there is like this is professional football. Like again, I can. We all act like idiot sometime, but Odell get a hold of yourself, bro. Like what are you doing after saquon Barkley scores a touchdown. You acting like an idiot, like come on man. And if I'm the giants. If I'm listened to Pat Shurmur nice guy minimum couple times work with them for a really short period of time in Philly. Really nice guy. You will not meet anyone that has a bad thing. Say about him. He he's not a head coach. He's just not. He is the last guy you'd want in this situation. In a perfect world. I'm watching tonight. And again, I mean he's one of the greatest coaches ever. You'd want a Parcells type type guys that come to my mind. You'd want like a Mike Zimmer a Bruce Arians. Do you think they stand for this stuff? Now again, you can't cut Eli. I mean, you can probably bench him. I don't even hell. I don't even know who their backup is. I guess Kyle Lou leda it doesn't matter. But the point is you can't allow for Odell to keep taking your franchise franchise hostage. You've already paid him. You have to attempt to get hold of. It might be too late and you may have just, you signed up for this. You gotta deal with it. But I think that the patch and I was told by a couple of people, this off-season that one of the problems and maybe just been reported. I forget it so long ago that like. The Detroit Lions coach. I can't even think of Nate map Patricia. You know, he interviewed for the giants job in basically told them though I'm not taking the job and maybe that was reported. Maybe it wasn't. I can't even remember now or so four past it, but I think a lot of guys had interviewed with the giants. Here's a couple of problem with the giants. Their owners are sneaky as active as any owners in the NFL what Chris Maura runs a part of the personnel department. He is John Moro's brother. You think you want to deal with that as head coach you being told who to play? Not the play by it's the owner, not just a just an overbearing GM. The owners are running personnel. John Maher is clearly really involved and Pat Shurmur to me is a, yeah, you had a good year last year as a coordinator is even a great coordinator at, you know, I don't know. I mean, I think John, I think the Vikings upgraded when I look at their offense this year to to last year. Second off, it does feel like he's a live. Little more buttoned up macadear just a classic. Yes, man that will do whatever the giants brass tells him to do. And now Odell the the snowball effect is so far past what it started at. It's out of his control. He doesn't have the personality to just overwhelm the room. And it's just he has no business being the head coach of the giants. It may sound harsh, and again, this is nothing personal and is and upgrade over MAC, do sure. I mean, macadamia was a clown and Shurmur is not by any means..
Ohio State football has everything at stake against Penn State
"We got Penn State Ohio State this weekend, and it's a playoff game. It is, what do you expect? Well, and to your point, people always like expand the playoff and go to eighteen sixteen teams. This is a playoff game. It is. This is an elimination game. I'm going to be at another one up. These are the games and we talk about this game on this show because with that playoff predicted that tells you even if you were just an essay. Person, and that's all you watch. You don't watch any game outside of the conference. You need to keep an eye on this one because you're going to see more than likely one of these teams because listen that play predictor at Penn State where to win this game this weekend, they're the ones that are gonna take over that number four spot. I expect shootout and going into the year, honestly before I was there and personal Saturday, I'm might not have believed that Ohio State could keep up in a shootout with trace McSorley and Penn State. Dwayne Haskins is, is the truth may legit, oh, he's the truth. And there's a reason Joe boroughs at LSU. Yeah, Joe borough is at LSU because Dwayne Haskins beat him out for the Ohio State quarterback job. They engaged in quite a battle during the spring Haskins ultimately wins at I in Happy Valley all day Tuesday. I'm doing a big feature for sportscenter on Saturday on one of a Penn State's offense of linemen. And I talked spoke extensively with James Franklin who you see here, not only for that feature but about his team. He loves his team. They lost a ton offensively. This saquon Barkley to the New York Giants day. Sean Hamilton was one. Of the best and most underrated wide receivers in the country. Last year they got bowlers. So you would expect, okay, they're going to fall off authentically, oh, Appalachian state gave them all they could handle in week one that was actually a great learning experience with this group. So they have resorted all trace McSorley does is win. He is tougher than woodpecker lips man. And I think this one is going to be attract me. I agree with you, and it's going to be so fun to what I learned this from you that trace McSorley won four consecutive state championship, all he does win. All it does all that that young man does is win football games
Dak Prescott of Dallas Cowboys rises to 'challenge' vs. New York Giants
"New York following Sunday night football tonight. Dallas Cowboys in the New York Giants both teams coming in at all in one both teams trying to avoid that dreaded Owen to Mark. And both teams coming in after being bit offense challenged in week number one. How would this one play out? Well for the Dallas Cowboys who struggled to score points against Carolina Panthers last week. It was not going to be the same this week. In fact, it took them only three plays on their opening drive to show everyone that this was going to be a little bit different breast got under center. Play action sets the throw look at the table in Austin. Got it. Sixty four Prescott to the speed. Tabloids on top six. So a six nothing lead. Just three plays in a sixty four yard touchdown pass. And a quick just a little bit more than ninety seconds as it turned out before the Dallas Cowboys had the lead in this game. Extra point was good. They had themselves a seven nothing lead. The offense wasn't really necessarily the story for Dallas in the first half. It was more the defense. They shut the giants down. The giants were unable to do anything offensively throughout the entire of that first half. Dallas added a field goal. Also in that first quarter at the end of a sixty four yard drive and had a ten nothing lead after one. It was the same ten nothing lead. If they ended up having at halftime in this ball game James came out with the opening kick off the second half and tried to get something going offense after putting up to seventy nine yards in the first half. However, Dallas Dallas's defense which had given manning fits in the first half continue to do so right after halftime Barkley motion to the right side of manning who creep in towards the line now back up clapping for the snap raising. His right foot off gets the shotgun. Snap. Head high pressure companies loose out. It's coming up by the Cowboys taco Charlton scoops up the loose ball after Damian Wilson. Manning up. Albouy sack this one results in a turnover and Dallas has the football inside the giant thirty. Turned out. The Brett Maher would hit a second field goal as a result of that turnover. His second of the game a twenty nine yard and few minutes into the third quarter was thirteen to nothing Dallas on top giant struggled to get offense going as we said all night long, the main safety valve rely was saquon Barkley as it turned out do end up getting targeted sixteen times out of the backfield at fourteen catches for eighty yards on the night. He's part of the drive New York put together ultimately to get into Dallas territory and their deepest penetration offensively to that point of the nine eleven plays. A sixty six yard drive. It took more than six minutes off the clock as it turned out. We're not going to be able to get into the end zone, but other grocers hit a twenty eight yard field goal to get New York on the board with four and a half left to go in the third. It was thirteen to three game. That's when the Dallas Cowboys not long thereafter, put together with turned out to be the drive of the game as they began at their own eighteen yard line this coming late. I should say. Early in the fourth quarter early in that fourth quarters. They took over the eighteen yard line. The giants were looking to hold defensively down just by nine. But Dallas was methodical. Dallas was strong running the football. Dallas was also led by their quarterback. Dak Prescott downfield in a fourteen play drive that took almost eight and a half minutes remaining in the game off the clock. And it was their bread truck. Ultimately put this game away third and two at the six Prescott the gift to Ezekiel Elliott breaks, the tackle. Elliot. Touchdown. Tackle up. Corinne, Mark on the right side left. Dovan for six nineteen to three Dallas what five forty five to go. Not a huge statistical game Zeke. You'll Elliott seventeen carries. Seventy eight yards with that touchdown as we said, basically put it away with by forty five left to go. The extra point made it at twenty two three ballgame. This is when New York finally found its offensive sea legs and moved the ball down the field. Although his Jason pointed out that especially quickly in the closing minutes of his game down by seventeen points. It was an eleven play seventy five yard drive. They didn't use their timeouts. It took the more than four minutes to get it done. And Eli manning finally found the end zone about as open as you can along the right hash. Manning drops the drill pressure coming throws over little wide open. His tight end. Evan. In the middle of the end zone. And it's a touchdown Ingram with his first touchdown grab of the year. He manning what his first touchdown pass and an easy voter Ingram to keep the giants. Live hopes alive into the end zone for the first time that I now down twenty two. Reason the hopes were slammed as there was only one twenty seven left to go in the game. After the extra point. It was twenty two ten that meant there had to be an onside kick and the giants recovered that onside kick then after eight plays. They elected to go for the thirty eight yard field goal Rosa's drill bat with just eleven seconds to go. What it meant was New York could recover the next onside kick it would have an opportunity maybe for hail Mary to the end zone and a miracle comeback to get the game tie roses. Onside kick sailed over the head and everyone dribbled out of bounds. At basically was Gandhi your ballgame. Donaldson the ball over the forty yard line took a need and they had themselves a victory a much needed victory. Ended up starting out this season for them twenty to

But a truth three down back Jason and Nettie stays in on third down as a pass protector a catcher out of the backfield. Yeah. This is the guy that compound the football. And as you said get out of the backfield, the crease and mismatches in one of the biggest things for running backs when they first come in. The league is learning how to protect Nestle be his biggest adjustment. Once he gets that. Now, I think the sky's the limit for this kid second and six the forty three shotgun snap swing past. Partly little juggling catch on the outside. So a tackle at the forty at his down near the forty. Four he held him up enough to get over and close in on the stop. It's a pickup of only yard on the plight at brings up third down and five of the forty four. That was a perfect example what you were just talking about how saquon Barkley can do more than just run the football though, the backfield here. Many throws a quick not very accurate pass. Saquon Barkley finds a way to catch it with one hand. Make a couple of men. Miss didn't pick up a whole lot of yours. Didn't lose an eater. So nice play by him.

New York Giants waive young QB Davis Webb in shocking move
"The New York Giants cutting Davis Webb. Now Gordon, I know we. I heard on the national side, but locally was the talk is serious last year when we had UI manning getting benched and the giants talking about eventually taking saquon Barkley at two in the draft. This idea that Davis Webb could seriously be the quarterback of the future. Was that a serious conversation around New York? It was not just fans of brought that up. It was media members that brought that up. There were people who consider themselves insiders who felt like no Davis Webb has a legitimate chance to be ally. Manning's era parent, which was strange because even at the time it was said that ally manning was going to play the expectation barring injury for at least another couple years. You're talking about a guy who would be going into twenty twenty without really seeing any significant time who you drafted in the third round and still then maybe he might be the apparent. But no, that was absolutely brought up as some by some that that was a reason why the jets were not gonna take a quarterback in the first round of the draft that they like Davis Webb and they thought of him. He was a third round pick. And that's not something to sneeze at so. But no, I never worked out that way and it was always kind of puzzling. I think to a lot of us that that Origene that did not draft. A guy is now going to put this faith in this guy, especially when he did not have good preseason this year. I mean, anytime you, you know, when he really got a bit of a chance in the preseason that first preseason game where he got a significant run, he was not good. So I think that the news is still kind of stunning that they decided to cut them essentially decided to go with the thirty year old Alex Tanny over him when he was just a third round pick a year ago. But the I know that talk about him at least within some circles in the media was out there talking to Gordon Damer on the show Pennzoil performance. Does that make you at all hesitant looking back now, even as great as we all think saquon Barkley is going to be this idea that in a year worthy quarterback class was considered so stellar and understanding. It looks like that talent is going to drop off in the coming years. When the guys we're seeing coming out of college. Does that give anyone pause now, looking at the fact that maybe even with a great running back giants could have passed on a quarterback that could succeed succeed, Eli manning that narrative is already well established in this town. Yeah. I mean, people are already hopping on that bandwagon might be the only exercise some people get, but that is the that is the exercise they're getting right now is jumping on that bandwagon because that's one that you can easily foresee right saquon Barkley could go out this year and as a running back, have a sensational season. But if the giants don't make the playoffs, go deep into the playoffs another year off the calendar for thirty seven year old ally manning and in the very same stadium, you have this young twenty one year old quarterback who very well could be making strides to show that he is the real deal and at least so far, right. We're talking about all these quarterbacks taken in the first round. He's the only guy that's going to be starting week one of those guys, all these guys that we talked about and we're dreaming all these scenarios before the draft Sam darnold. The only guy and he's still playing in this town with the along with the, you know the jets facing off against the giants who decided, no, we're not gonna go, rebuild. We're going to do quick fix. We're going to plug in a running back who's certainly going to be very talented now that that narrative is certainly out there. Well established and people are just looking for more and more evidence to kind of support it right

"No one's a rookie. And then you have the veterans on the other side of me outside as well. You can call going. I would call Goodwin veteran. He's been on this second team in the league now and then Garcia, and obviously a veteran tread Taylor. He's second year player, Hendrick born the second year player, and you got the rookie. So you got some good young talent and some good veteran town on that cuisine, corporal, the Niners, Jimmy, g. he's an executive knife with the ball and the intermediate passes. So those guys are all going to be. Those guys are perfect for him coming into this year. Looking around the league here. I mean, kind of it's kind of interesting because you have some trade-offs. Obviously, especially in even on the first round, you have trade offs. You have Zeke Elliott versus saquon Barkley. You have David Johnson for saquon Barkley. I would say I, I wouldn't say girl belting. There are more closer to the top half of the draft, but I would say cream hunt versus saquon Barkley. I mean, cream hunt, honestly, coming into the second year isn't going to be considered in the veteran value. He could still be considered a young gamble because he kind of fell off a little bit of the last year me maybe in the middle. He kind of picked it up at the end. But in the middle of the year, he kind of disappeared for all all of a sudden and they'd say, quantum, obviously, we have no idea really to have an you can think of an idea. You can have you say, oh, he's gonna be great. I saw what he did wasn't really that an amer- by. Yeah, I know he listed a bunch of weights and he ran really fast and he did all this stuff and his shorts. How about when when he's got, DeMarcus, Lawrence coming after him. Or Horford, or Paris, or Paris Cox, or or he's got Jilin mills on the outside coming coming down, crash on, run support. I'm just like, or actually the guy who I'm sure he's in love. The most is is what's it was name every time safety safety for the for the eagles point. Mom, I think I can't think of his name every single time. He's Malcolm Jenkins, Malcolm Jenkins is going to be saquon Barkley favorite person this year because I think Malkhaz Malcolm's in a hit him, hit him in the mouth like three or four times this year, I think because they play twice, obviously equals giants. Honestly, I'm watching. I'm watching it. I was excited. The Niners are playing the giants here because I want to see take one. I'm going to see what he can do. I really, I'm really excited. I want to be on kind of want to be wrong. I can only be right. I wanna see him struggle. I mean, I don't wanna wish any negative v. but I think that he's getting over hyped he's way over hyped way over hyped. You saw what Zeke didn't college you saw car with Christian McCaffrey didn't college you saw with the other guys. You can look at look and chimeras numbers in college, Tennessee. He's gonna catch the ball. He's catching the ball out of the backfield more often and he's running routes. But I mean, that's why I think if saquon is going to do something that's going to really help him move along in this league, it's going to be catching the ball out of the backfield. And that's why I think they couldn't pass up on them because you're basically drafting players. You've definitely receiver in drafting running back at the same time. So I think that especially this league's going the way that you're, I mean, the giants kind of figure what their quarterback situation you wanna give paid man. I mean, you lie NASA paid all-time ally. The most easiest throws possible. You're going to have a good target in your running back there and hopefully saquon. I mean, I hope I hope saquon does. Well, honestly, the plan the Cowboys are in the division. I would love to see him as a run up and down the line, the Cowboys and then have a bad day. That's like, fair time. You can't just pick you have to be kind of neutral, don't you?.

"Nfl yeah you have a guy that college production and college film was already clear cut number one everyone knew he was the best one out there so incredibly fleck and electric on the field he's two hundred and thirty plus pounds so you then he goes after he was already consensus number one in his own tier goes to the combine where he destroyed it after him now yeah is the saquon barkley combine i mean you're talking not a not a guy who's like david johnson set the combine on fire several years ago unbelievable who's a ninety fifth percentile athlete saquon barkley is a ninety ninth percentile he's there's you don't get like better than saquon and then you go to a team that while the offense looked bad last year that was because of injury you also have incredible opportunity for utilizing his pass catching skills the giants over the second half of last season at sixty three receptions to the running backs which might surprise you that was first in the league that's the team is going to shane vereen is not taking over anything he's not even i don't believe this even have team right now but my point is the passing work will be there for him and anyone look at christian mccaffrey last year christian mccaffrey was a poor running back he didn't perform wasn't efficient and he was he was rb one for fantasy because he so good at the passing game i think you've got the passing game skills of mccaffrey with a much bigger better nfl body so yeah i i'm i'm fully confident and saquon barclays success poor shame does not have a home right now he's a free agent sorry and you really rubbed it in yeah and is it pretty me know no i think we all buy into the opportunity look the opportunity for him to carry that offense is going to be there you know you said let you said last year their offense failed due to injury they failed due to a bad stable of running backs about offensive line they showed that up and bad bed quarterback play era we haven't even brought up how awful the offense of playcalling was last year in new york and i think that's been greatly improved with the the new options yeah absolutely so look speaking of electric about quip about cut the truth is that.

"Saquon barkley is gonna control maybe or maybe but i also think it's possible he didn't love these guys i think that's a big part of it and and this what we'll find out if he's writing man i mean think about this show of all four the guys are stuck look the four major guys forget lamar jackson mason roof guys like that if none of these four guys turn out to be franchised quarterbacks then dave gettleman was on right that's right but i think if one of them specifically darnold becomes a franchise quarterback especially with it being in this town and the giants struggle in finding a franchise quarterback and that could ultimately cost them they win a title now with this guy that changes that's that's that's a different story now championships changes every right no doubt we'll come back and talk to quincy of the new york jets we've got plenty of time for more your telephone calls including shocking news coming out of the nfl concerning players retirement we'll get to that coming up but the two thousand eighteen draft is here you saw around one yesterday you've got two and three today the rest of it over the weekend or fantasy football season has begun to how about that it's never too early if you love fantasy football i gotta try the new way to play the best ball league on my favorite app draft you can now pick your favorite rookie all the jet fans lineup up and take sam darnold all the giant fans lineup and take saquon barkley start drafting your players and what's great is that you put the guys out there and then there's no management set it and forget it because once you're done drafting no trades no waiver wire don't even set your line.

"The young man especial here are some numbers no school has produced more i ron running backs than penn state and no player in penn state history brush for more touchdowns than saquon barkley is also the school's all time leader in all purpose yards along side his head coach from penn saint james franklin is our great pleasure to welcome saquon barkley who tonight will hear his name somewhere very early in the nfl draft and thank you to both of you in a moment we'll have saquon explained why this will only be the second most significant thing that happens to him this week but let's start just with this notion and coach i'd love you to chime in as well this idea that a running back shouldn't go as high as a quarterback or other players because of the position why do you think it would be a mistake for teams to pass over saquon well i think the biggest thing is is what you're trying to do i guess in all businesses you trying to reduce risk and i get the history of it but when you when you talk about saquon specifically saquon and your and you talk about all the positives and all the action beauts that he has that you look for at that position body type speed strength power vision l bility to catch the ball out of the backfield the way the game is evolved so much he has all those but i think probably the more powerful thing is on all these prospects they're also looking for negatives they're looking for issues or looking for red flags and from everything i've seen and heard and what i've experienced myself there really isn't any so when you're able to get a player that i think has a chance to really change the game and really be able to make a huge impact on the nfl very quickly it's hard to pass on that.

"The fact that they've least broke that skit and all of it they didn't even score a frigging touchdown in the postseason but whatever let me go they earned a little bit i would say in the bills fans is that if you can get the quarterback they will say it was all worth it because this is a team like the jets that has been in quarterback hell for two decades and so if you know shady mccoy as a fan favorite but this is what i think bills fans understand that i hope that the giants fans understand is just having the running back isn't nearly enough can saquon barkley have a better curtis shady mccoy maybe i mean gravy he can hope to have their shady mccoy he's got a decent amount enough left in the tank and my point was shady is just this special he's special he's got enough left and the giants every move they have made is to win now yeah but what i'm saying is he's special now right oh he's move without a doubt how many times how many times have shady what i'm saying is i mean shady and i'm just trying to belabor the point to the giants fans shady special yeah yeah when he was in the eagles never been to the second round of the playoffs so you can have great teams in a special running back if saquon barkley has a career shady's had bravo but i had a hell of a career but i think if you had a back if you had a backfield jonathan stewart shady mccoy pretty good i think he and you and you get your picks and all that stuff you get first round picks you have to number two so you can go for even higher than that considering got another second round pick they've got to find a way to fit fit shady's salary into their until they don't have a lot of money point but i'm just saying that.

"I think the i think saquon barkley will be on his way to the hall of fame the he'll be wrapping up a hall of fame career in the team that takes him on thursday night we'll go into the playoffs in twenty thousand eighteen every year there are at least four new playoff teams last season we got a big number there were eight new playoff teams from the year before and i think next year like the eagles they went from worst to first they went from fourth place to the super bowl so anybody that says and i've already gotten a few tweets on this at the pony express pony spelled p o who have set and by the way that's the name of the show the pony express you're on cbs sports radio a few of you listening if said you're out of your mind to think the giants would go from three and thirteen to the playoffs with barclay no not like of all the things that i believe in that is one thing i can tell you with one hundred percents certainty i am not saying with effect going into last year the giants were viewed by a lot of football experts as a team that had super bowl potential and they stunk they were awful everything that could go wrong went wrong it was a murphy's law season for them the offense of line was in tatters beckham got injured marshall got her running back by committee didn't work for them defense was a bust totally underachieved ally apple quit on the team just a disaster so they went from eleven and five to three thirteen you put saquon barkley in there and you get odell beckham junior healthy for a full season and the offensive line is just average they could very easily win ten games at this time last year nobody was saying if the jaguars pick leonard fournette there'll be a playoff team next year i was one of the few people i told james this i i was one of the few people who said that the cowboys would be good with prescott and elliot i thought they were a playoff team with those two guys 'cause i thought eliot was that good his rookie year and i see barclays leaps and bounds better than elliott if you don't believe.

"One side in trouble on the other so the giants to me are one big fat question mark but i can't worry about what they're doing all i'm saying is that if he if saquon barkley slips past the giants the broncos must at the jets obviously will not take saquon barkley they want quarterback brown's i've come around to the idea that they're going to take a quarterback at one one way or another and then you see what the bills wanna do if they wanna trade up to four then you let them because the bills have shady so obviously they go quarterback and then and then barkley falls into the broncos lab but you have to be agile because if barkley gets down to four you need to call my boy there in cleveland that used to be the general manager for the chiefs and say what do you want to move up to four because obviously the browns will will take but the broncos to me must must must land saquon barkley won the draft what if what if the browns are confident of their quarterback will stay for and they go on number one dad but that's what i had been saying initially was barkley and i understand depth there's death at the running back position but there is also one star there is one franchise player at that position.

"Started as number one of the the first pick of the team eighteen round the cleveland browns select saquon barkley penn state good lord they believe that saquon barkley is the best player in this draft and they believe that they can get their franchise quarterback mater in the draft and here's what i would say about that i thought early on saquon barkley with certainly be the number one overall pick at the running back spot but i go back to my long theory is you can find a running back later on a draft you can pick him up in the fourth you can get him in the second third just take a look at some of the running backs in recent history in terms of where they were selected to gone back and forth now in this thing that's part of the draft the process you start off one way route to another say here when raj arguer you to about saquon barkley is going to be the first big in the draft and you guys were yelling at us that what we were talking about and now you've gone the other part of putting the mock draft together i have not backed back from that and part of the reason why because if it was just any really good quarterback or or running back then yes i would agree with you but he's seems to have these sort of once in a generation sort of skill set county that makes them more eighth anything about dick yael they say the same thing about other running back.

"D invite just to show off the nice campus i think he was an opportunity i think he wanted to see if there were running backs coach who's there in in attendance and there weren't and so he said what am i why am i doing anything if there aren't any coaches for running backs there but it's also chance to get some players from penn state and opportunity to get in front of scouts as well but saquon barkley didn't need to do a pro day in my opinion unless it's to sort of reenergize he didn't do anything to reenergize his drafts a status and that's what i thought if he was doing it just to remind people hey you know i've run a four three forty before my vertical has been a little higher than what i had at the combine i don't know if that's changing anybody's philosophy here i do think saquon barkley is dropping but i think he's only dropping because teams are moving up to get their quarterbacks and if you know if on the tampa bay buccaneers and he can land in my backfield hey i'm fine with that you don't need a quarterback disip there and wait and have your arms out to catch him when he falls the colts might be a place where he would end up his well but you know i got some intel from that i'll have that for you coming up by the way reports are leaking about the nfl competition committee what they have in mind this off season perhaps the most interesting changes the catch rule we talked about this yesterday when some of this information leaked out we're not really sure we've seen big games decided by controversial guidelines here you know surviving the ground that he complete the process did he make a football move all of those things in instant replays really been the nemesis of this because we're slowing this down frame by frame and officials are going to look at every detail here takes forever and we see catches least we think they're catches and they're taking away now we're getting away from surviving the ground nonsense and i think most people in the media might be mixed on this but most of us agreed the previous catch rule was silly i know.
