"Pass to Welker that some would say was a little bit thrown behind him, others said that he should have caught it. And gisele basically came out and said, my husband can not both throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time, right? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Well, how about even after the divorce? She came to Tom's defense as a player. She said, quote, it's a team sport. You can't play alone. I think he did a great job under the circumstances. I mean, he had no offensive line. Wow. Wow. Giselle, my hair. The cheap did she come out and say like, are they getting back or is she gonna dump her yoga instructor or whatever? Do you Brazilian jiu-jitsu guy? Whatever it. No, no, no, she said that they're through, they're done, but she did come to his defense as a football player. Okay, I thought maybe. I love that. I mean, he had no offensive line. Those guys are awful. Those guys are awful. Come on, you poor offensive lineman. You can blame for everything, huh? I know. Anytime a quarterback doesn't look good, laying the offensive line, even just L blames you guys. I know. I know. It's probably all Sierra feels about the Broncos last year. Look at that offensive line. They were trash. That's right. Currently right now, she is on my list. Uh oh. She's gonna get a stern talking to from Martin. Mark and gisele come face to face. That's right. Someone needs to talk to you for a minute. A little something about football. Right. That'll do it for what is trending up next. Got a couple of topics here for you that we want to get into. What do you need to see from the nuggets over these last 9 games? And how much do you blame injuries on what happened to Russell Wilson last year? That's next. Loosen up those joints in muscles. Each time for your 7 45 stretch. Here's where it did Evans with the biggest story in Denver sports. Nothing bigger than Troy rank are Denver 7 insider presented by rocks heating and air. Troy, do you, with the news that Russell Wilson underwent a minor niece scope on top of the other injuries that he had last season. He had the shoulder injury. He had the concussion. He had a hamstring. How much do you blame injuries for his performance last year? What was part of it? There's no doubt the scheme related. It was his preference not to run early in the season. There was some aging involved. So yeah, there was a confluence of factors that led to the worst season of his career. So when you look at it, you say, okay, fresh start, he's going to be healthy when he went through all this other stuff. He had a minor knee issue that's been annoying him, get it cleaned up as well. I expect him to be leaner to play at a different way is my guess, especially in the pictures I've seen of him this off season. He's ready to be coached. Because let's be honest, this feels like a one year audition for him with Sean Payton. Sean Payton is not going to be giving out any flowers to any players anytime soon. Russell's got to come in and prove it. And so in that way he comes in healthy and all this is a good sign, but the concern is the age that is a declining player dealing with an age issue. So you have to bear that in mind, at least be mindful of it and hope that this isn't the beginning of a guy dealing with a lot of health issues that it was just an anomaly when you look at the rest of his career. How much of how much of signing Jared Stidham was about a young ascending player and how much was it just about that and how much was it about not really trusting Russell Wilson? I don't know that it's not about trusting we also because they want this year to work if possible. But it is the idea that you have a guy in a backup who's played a few meaningful meaningful snaps, obviously played great against the niners last year. And it just gives you an option that if a Russell is injured or ineffective or B, you know, after this year, you're looking in a new direction, you've got something there, someone that was with you that worked with you, that you're going to develop. I mean, obviously, set them has a great relationship with Davis Webb, the quarterbacks coach, he respected Sean Payton, Peyton, is what drew him to the Bronco. So I don't know that it's not trusting Wilson as much as wanting a better option if things get sideways again. And when you look at even when they had Drew Brees in New Orleans, Peyton had options at backup that if drew was going to miss because at the end of his career, he typically missed three or four games this season that you feel like you can win, whether he did it with teddy Bridgewater or Taysom Hill. It just feels like he wanted to be protected at that position. Do you think a receiver gets dealt? I mean, there was a better chance before yesterday when Elijah Moore went to the browns. The browns were in on Jerry Judy and they just could not find common ground. I mean, the Broncos have asked for a first round pick. The browns don't have the first round pick because of the deshaun Watson trade. And so it was going to involve you see how they did the deal. They send a three to get a two backs. You send more in a three to get a two back when the Bronco is ever going to do something like that. They've just never backed off on wanting a first rounder for Judy and that tells you how much they like you. It tells you though when they're in on Adam Thielen, they were in on Allen lazard. That they want to reconfigure, specifically Sean Payton wants to reconfigure that wide receiver room. So we keep an eye on it. The Patriots, I'm not sure if they're out yet. They got juju Schuster Smith. The cowboys are out. So some of these teams are out, the Giants still like them, the packers still like them. I mean, there's some teams out there you keep an eye on. I do now wonder what the browns off the board if this will go up to the draft. And the something could still happen either right before the draft or during the draft. Are the Broncos unrealistic with their with their draft demands or their compensation demands for Jerry Judy, when you think about a guy like Brandon cooks, I think drew a 5th and 6th rounder. Nobody seems to be interested in Deandre Hopkins with a second round pick. Are they just asking for way too much? Well, so far they are, if you look at they haven't moved it. If they really wanted to move him, he would be both. I mean, it's one of those things. We like him enough that we don't want to move in, but we're making him available if you overwhelm us. It's one of those types of scenarios. Kind of like it was with Bradley Chubb that they got the right deal. They were moving each other and eventually the dolphins were Leonard and gave him a first. So far, that isn't the case for Judy. The one difference from Judy and the players you brought up Mark is that Judy salary this year is so manageable at four 8 or whatever it is. And even as option, if you pick up his 5th year option and you have to decide by May 1st, it's still right at 12 million. If he becomes the guy you think he is, that's a bargain in the current receivers market where most guys are getting 18 to 20 million. So in that regard, they're not asking too much. That's why you can ask that is because he's salary as such. What if you were to move him? You're going to have to pay down part of the contract. It would be more like a Brandon coach deal because of the money he's owed this year. The cap hit, but there's no dead money after this season either. That's, you know, if you were going to try to acquire him as a different team. But have they asked for too much, it tells you they still want him enough not to just give him away. And they really want draft capital. And when you look at players on their roster who could bring back draft capital, he's near the top of that list. And that's why

"Our Denver 7 insider. He's presented by R O X rocks heating into air. Try good morning. What kind of grade would you give the Broncos for the first week of free agency? Well, in terms of addressing needs, I think it would be like an a minus the overall class, something I got to see, I would say probably BB plus, got to see how all these pieces fit together, but in terms of having a plan and executing it and addressing clear needs across the roster. I mean, it's just an absolutely tornado of activity. I thought there'd be a selectively aggressive. I thought they'd get one offensive line but not two. My, I'm not as high on as most, but the reality is, and I've talked with Mark about it. If he just brings stability to the physician, there's real value in that. If he's just above average in plays and for the next three years, we're not talking about the right tackle position. There's real value in that. Powers is a guy who's mobile and can pull is very strong at the point of attack. So what they did at the offensive line, I like. And Zach Allen, I just really like to fit there as much as I love very much Jones. Alan stops to run. He's got 9 and a half socks the last two years. He's obviously and when I text with fans Joseph, he can't say enough good things about the guy in the fit. So really good things and some as you that is just an absolute, if you're talking about best moves in terms of shrewd balance fantastic because he's a great third down back, he's trusted in pass pro and he can catch the ball out of the backfield. I mean, so there's a lot of things to like. We got to see all the plays out, new guys, new system and all that. But in terms of addressing needs and a overall class, I'm going to reserve judgment on a right now until I see it in training camp. Yeah, I think P Ryan's probably one of the best signings they got, and I think it's just like you said a shrewd move. Are they done? Are there other frees that they're going after right now? Well, they're not done because they could move one of the receivers between Jerry Julian Corleone Sutton. The Patriots are off the board likely with juju Schuster Smith signing there, but you've got a number of teams still looking for a receiver between the packers, browns, giants, cowboys, and they go down the list. But the price for Judy's been high. And if you want a number one, I don't know if you get that deal done. If it's a two and something else, you might and people ask, why would you move Judy? And it's tough because I think he has turned the corner, especially the last 5, 6 weeks. So the season. But Sean Payton is the one going over the film now. He knows what he wants out of these players. And if they say, if he has Peyton believes that they can get something cheaper in the draft and turn around and get some picks, especially this year, I mean, you can understand it. The Broncos right now, according to over the cap have the third highest amount of money devoted to their wide receiver room. That doesn't really work for this team. I mean, let's be honest. And they didn't even have a thousand yard receiver last year. So when you ask, why would this happen, but to your sudden much harder to move because of the contract, it's because you'd want to allocate resources differently. So are they done? I think there's a few minor boobs last year. A center falls through the market falls on a center because they bring someone like that in. I think they're going to try to adjust get a starter at guard in the draft that garter center, but I don't think they're done, Mark. But they are certainly their 9 signings in two days and four official last night. I mean, that's a lot of activity. Busy with Troy Wright Troy win courtland Sutton comes out and says in response to trade rumors I just want to go somewhere where I'm appreciated. How do you think that goes over with the new regime? And if they can't trade them, might they decide just to cut them? I mean, I wouldn't have said that if I were him, I would have kept it off social media. I mean, listen, he's been a good player on some bad teams and I understand that and he's been a captain. I mean, he's been a guy that's dealt with all this Dell of injury. So I'm sure that he's felt like he's earned that respect, but the reality is, and I know this is hard for players. When you have a new regime change, especially one is jarring as this from coach Hackett to coach Payton. You've got to be careful in terms of thinking where you stand in the organization at that point. And the reality is, since Portland set and hurt his knee, he has not been the same player. He has not. That's the stats. That's not an opinion. His two touchdowns in his last 26 games. He had at one point last year drops in 7 straight games as much as everyone wears out Jerry Judy for drops. I mean, that happened over the course of his rookie year where he was terrible with drops that hasn't really been the case since. So if I'm certain, I get it, you've been in the league for a long time now. You're a captain. You feel you deserve a certain amount of respect, but the NFL is a cold businessman. It's a sympathetic as a parking ticket. And when you have a regime change, it's just different. They see you differently, and it's very clear that they have a way they want to do things here. Be more physical, un offense. They're going to run the ball more. And that gets back to my point. If that's who they're going to be, are you going to have the third most money in the league devoted to the wide receiver position? That seems unlikely. Let me ask you a question about a guy that I think is one of the finest players in football. And a guy that I've loved to watch and CJ Gardner Johnson. Now he was with Sean Payton in New Orleans. He was a huge part of their defense in the nickel, and then he went to Philly and played a little nickel, played mostly safety in Philly last year as they traded him away. But there are some reports out there that they have interest in CJ Gardner Johnson. What are you hearing? I think there is some interest there, Mark. I haven't been able to confirm that it's like, hey, they're going after him. He made some waves on Monday night because he started following a bunch of Broncos on social media. His allegiance and affinity for Sean Payton is well known. He credits paid for kind of get him the chance to kind of launch his career and Peyton spent was critical of the saints when they let him go and traded him to the eagles. Making it fit now might be difficult. And I know the eagles are trying to bring him back. They brought sleigh back, which was a surprise. And they made that work. They brought Fletcher Cox back. They've kind of keeping the band together there to run it back a little bit. Now they've lost some dudes. We know that. But so I don't know there, but there is a potential need. We don't know what's going to happen with Kareem Jackson. And cadence turns. I like a lot, but he's coming off a hip injury where he missed most of last season. They do have a need there. Right now, given the uncertainty at the strong safety position, can they make that math work? I don't know. But I'm not going to roll it out at this point because if you look at what Peyton's done since he got here, how many times does he look for people with ties to the saints? Whether it was a coach or a player. So I don't rule it out. I just don't know if they can make the math work going forward on a contract like that. They probably could. That would be their last probably swing if they do it, but if they do, it's something to file away because of the need right now because of Gardner Johnson's connections to Payton. All right, something to watch and Troy will be covering all of it and you can follow him on Twitter at Troy rank check him out on Denver 7 as well. Troy, thank you. You got a guy to take care of great show. Troy rank of Denver 7 join

"The red zone, you want your safeties are at 8 yards instead of 14 yards. So you're playing against a ten man box, and they have a great they have a great understanding of run support and blocking schemes. So that's all they do is when they see that when they see that tight end or that end of line of scrimmage block. I mean, they're flying up the alley to make a tackle. And so you're four yards or 5 yards closer when you're in the red zone. And that's one of the reasons they're so good in the red zone. So yeah, their Henry's going to get his. Part of this is they're going to give up some of that running game to Derek Henry. They'll give that up. By the way, it looks like Ryan Tannehill will be playing quarterback not to Malik Willis coming back from the foot injury they had. So anyway, which is good, but Derek Henry to me won't be the reason they lose this game if they lose it. Next on the morning room. You know, we had some guys that played outstanding tonight, but canon was phenomenal. Logan O'Connor phenomenal. He got a pretty good night finishing. You know, the week capitalized on her chances in the scheme they didn't notice the difference. There is. Jared bedman. That's a good win last night. That was a really good way to ask beating Nashville 5 to three. I was a little bit Larry of this game because traveling back from Finland with the abs have their legs. I know they only played two games in the span of a couple of weeks, but I still kind of wondered if their legs would be there last night, but they were the ass get the win. I think maybe certainly inspired. It was Peter mcnab knight as the avalanche organization. Remembered, recognized, honored, celebrated, Peter mcbath's life, so that might have helped give the abs a little juice that maybe wouldn't have been there ordinarily, but that's an impressive way to boy. In the absence of key guys being out, boy are the abs, best players, really, really elevating their game right now. Nathan McKinnon, 21 points through 12 games, mikko ranton in 19 points through 12 games, they're well above a point per game pace, kale McCarthy at a point per game pace. So your stars are playing like stars and carrying this team while a lot of key guys are out. They'll do it for the morning brew, bring that to you each and every morning at 6 30. Troy rank will try to summarize what was even by Bronco standards, a pretty wild week out there. Troy joins us next. It's a Bud Light football Friday. Bud light, official beer sponsor of the Denver Broncos. Here schlereth and Abbott's. Our Denver 7 insider joins us presented by Rox rocks heating and air and Troy, you've been on the Bronco beat for quite some time. Even by Bronco standards, this has been quite the week, hasn't it. Yeah, I mean, this is what happens when you don't win. All the other stories become amplified from wristbands to faux hot dog eating on the sidelines. I mean, that's what happens. When you're three and 5 and you're one of the NFL's most disappointing teams. It's a little unfortunate because they actually did win a game in London and they have a chance to rescue this season. If you look at the schedule, Tennessee, a little compromised and then you play the Raiders at home and then at Carolina. But yeah, that's a surprise to me with the Broncos anymore. It's just they're always in the news. And when they're not winning, they're in the news for stuff that sometimes makes you shake your head. Yeah, no question about that, Troy. So wristband gate was something that was made a big deal of. Obviously, Russell Wilson wore a wristband in Jacksonville, my expecting him to wear a wristband this week and speed up some of the operation and stuff. Do you expect him to have that wristband on? And how much help do you think it was in that Jacksonville game in London? I absolutely expect him to wear it because they won with it. And he's practiced all week with it when I've been out there, Mark. Where it really made a difference it looks to me and I'm not in the huddle, but when they went up tempo, now you can't stay up temple an entire game, but it clearly helps them going up tempo. And when you go up tempo to be able to look at the wristband because you know better than anyone, Mark, these calls become so verbose and they're so lengthy that to just look down at the play sheet and call it out and save you ten seconds, that gets you out of the huddle sooner, gets you to the line of scrimmage sooner and also allows Hackett to stay in Wilson deer up to the 15 second mark of the play clock. So there are advantages of it. I understand some quarterbacks don't like it. They want to kind of be at their own pace and Wilson's credit, you know, I think Pete Carroll, I respect Pete Carroll. I think petty Pete Carroll's been a little much with this. He's winning the divorce. We all get it. But you want a lot of games with Wilson not wearing the wristband. I mean, you know Smith is a rich hand inside story. I get it. But so while people are like, why wouldn't Wilson wear the wristband before? Well, when you're successful in pro sports, you don't typically change. Now though, it's not successful. They have struggled mightily offensively. So they're basically marking the stage or whatever works. That's why they wear the same uniforms on the road with the white top and the blue trousers. You know how this goes. They're looking for anything to tie a knot and hang on here. So it can help, especially with the wristband in a tempo. Troy looking at the Broncos injure report from yesterday over half the guys that are on the injury report are listed with hamstring injuries. It has been an issue, an epidemic going back to Greg dulcich in the preseason. So what is being talked about over there in terms of the way that they're training these guys, treating these guys is this something the bronchos are taking a hard look at or is it just simply being passed off as coincidence? No, it's obviously something that they're taking a look at because of the sheer number of it. It's going across the league, but it's particularly hitting the Broncos hard. I mean, I reported yesterday that KJ handler is not playing this week. And that's unfortunate because if you look at the Titan defense, they struggle against plot receivers. You look at how did you Schuster Smith and Travis Kelsey set in pockets of zone? This setup is a potential big game for KJ handler. It was coming off that 47 yard reception to set up that final touchdown. But one of the things you have to look at with the hamstrings. And I'm not making excuses just as someone who's covered pro sports here for almost three decades. The altitudes of factor, you're coming off a biweek, and we have no humidity here. And if guys don't hydrate correctly, they get off their diet here, and then you come back out and go from zero to a hundred, too quickly. I've seen it. You pull hamstrings and you pull a belief muscles in baseball more specifically. It is a little different animal here at altitude, especially with time off and jumping back into it. In the case of Hamlet, he pulled his running go routes. And so I do think you also have to not just look at how they're training and treating it, but also how you're practicing. You have to be careful to incorporate all three of these things to make sure because these modern athletes and I know Mark will shift your editors, but they get trained almost like racehorses to do very specific things. And when they get out of that, I mean, I've noticed from coaching kids for 15 years. They get out of that and they're not too sport athletes. They just do one. Sometimes this is what you deal with. And it's unfortunate, it's a bad look. We understand that. Injuries think. But I do think you have to look at all the components, altitudes, hydration, how you're training, but also how you're

"More interesting is less the price pool and more who's competing in the market. I think there is a push and pull and attention between competitive and we saw this at Overwatch league for sure. Competitive, not integrity, but I would say competitive concerns and optimization. And those who had audience and could actually bring in views and have personalities people wanted to follow. I thought we were oftentimes putting the attention on the wrong things like price. And not concentrating enough on the personalities that a we were trying to build, or B were already out there, and we could go on. It feels anecdotally anecdotally at least to me like there's no difference these days between a $1 million price pool or a $3 million price Bill, right? Like there's sort of this point where it's big enough that it gets a lot of attention and a lot of eyeballs and there's probably a huge number that gets more attention, right? Like call it 25 million plus where now it's a major event that mainstream media covers even. But everything sort of in between that one in 25 sort of doesn't really matter, right? If it's one or it's four or 6, it doesn't seem to have a huge effect on the audience. Andy, I'm curious, you hinted at this idea that sub nation is doing a league of its own. I don't know how much you can talk about it or say about it. But I'd love a little bit of insight there in terms of what are you guys sort of bring to the table that you think is unique or that learnings you've taken from your time, for example, at Overwatch league, either things you're doing or not doing as a consequence. Sure. So to tease a little bit about what we're building, it's something really. So I mentioned that that focus on personality that focus on individual players. Versus focus on the competitive whole, we're building something around pro athletes as a gaming as an eSports and a gaming platform and there's a lot of athletes out there who want to get into eSports. Want to get into competitive gaming, have tried, but have found it incredibly difficult. It's not just like a guy like ocho Cinco, right? To use to use that or even juju Schuster Smith. Shuster, she was just about I always mess that up. You can just flip on Twitch, but to which account in that everybody from their IG is going to migrate over. They're finding it difficult. And I think what we're seeing as the opportunity is to create a container to create a platform for them in which we are giving them a kind of a turnkey solution. At the very basis level. But B also providing a place where audience is starting to aggregate and already is. So while their whole audience has been coming there, there are plenty of people who are already into it, are into this intersection of professional sports and eSports, if you will. And receptive to what they're offering and bringing to the team. Yeah, what else can I go ahead? No, I'm curious, because in your own models in your own sort of internal discussions, how much of a traditional athletes fan base do you think will come over to whatever they're doing on the eSports side? Like, is it 80%? Is it 50% or is it 5%? I'm curious and I don't know if you have that data Andy, but sort of roughly or anecdotally at least. I don't have specific data, but I can tell you that, yes, I believe it's closer to, I wouldn't say 5%, you know, I'm an optimist, but I don't think it's in the 80% range. I don't even think it's in the 50% range. I think it is closer to call it between ten and 20%. I think that's a safe assumption. Interesting. Yeah. Yeah, and I think that's, I mean, there's a few reasons for that. Now, not really audience or gaming related. If you look at like a social account, for instance, think about the amount of users there that are junk users, first of all. And are not following you into any endeavor. But then in addition to that, yeah, the people that are following you in a fan of you and also a big fan of eSports and video games is a smaller subset naturally. And I think that the last part of that is the challenge in getting somebody to migrate over, no matter who you are, even if Tom Brady were to turn on an eSports or tomorrow. It'd be a big deal. I'm sure they'd get a lot of people, but there's so much noise out there. And so much happening, you really have one shot and if you miss it, it can be really hard to make a big deal and get people over there. I think migration is a challenge. To other platforms. And what is the pitch to the athletes? What are they buying into? Is it the idea that this is going to expand their fan base? Is it the idea that it's just something cool for them to do in the off season? What is the pitch to the athletes themselves? Yeah, so I think athletes think about gaming in a few different ways. And that tailors the pitch, obviously. So in one way to your point, yeah, sometimes it is something just that they like to do. That they think it's cool. They're competitors, right? These are guys that are used to performing at a high level, so they're doing it. They say, if I'm doing this, I might as well stream it. I want to make it worth it. I want to do it at a certain level. So I think there's guys who just love the game and want to do it like that. There's also a number of guys that see this. And this is, I think this is really savvy. See gaming as one of those ways in which they can diversify their brand and give themselves something that not only offers other engagement and commercialization opportunities around their personal brand, separate from their team, but also sets them up post competition. For when they're not competitors anymore, right? They get injured or they just retire. Or they kind of fade out of the competitive spot pipe. They're setting themselves up for the future. And I think that's really smart. Jimmy I don't know if you had anything else on this. I wanted to switch gears to different I feel like we could have a whole episode just on this east coast element, honestly, 'cause we didn't really even scratch the wow and hearthstone that you had mentioned before. Well, I'm going to come back to that actually. I just want to get on the marvel has bro Mattel, I think what's so cool about some of those experiences is it all revolves around interesting IP, right? Whether it was marvel or Star Wars or whatever the nerf, like big IP brands halo, things that you worked on in a context that wasn't actually gaming, right?.

But i guess if i had to pick one i pissed i have all been tied my top twenty but probably i would go with brown. I think he's probably the riskiest of those wide receivers. Okay a couple of tweets. Joseph wants to know big banner. Cuyler murray stop it. This week is tweet. Delete the tweet. Murray right tyler. Marie is in idiot. Come on right. It's like it's kind of a murray or topic. You had me kyla murray. You're starting kyla murray. And he should delete. The tweet should have anyone out there to the public. But he really biting between tyler. Moore your rapporteur brandon league. Deebo samuel or judy schuster smith or smith schuster judas fister but it's I'm gonna go depot brand value still in the doghouse. They're they're gonna have to throw There's a lot of weapons there for the field. I think the big. Nashi harris game at home against raiders were travelling obviously on a short week after playing five quarters in an emotional monday night win One last one or brady again. I don't think you can do that one. I have brady slightly ahead of over. Proposed cuts going to big games this week so i'll go brady but both guys really good matthew last thing for me. There is some talk. There was some talk this year in our league. And i know it it. It's a conversation comes up in every league. And if i'm not mistaken you wrote about it in your book. It was a chapter in one of your books to add an embarrassment penalty for the team. That finishes last. What's their bet. What's the best one of those. I know you've heard hundreds of them. What's your favorite one. What's your favorite penalty that someone had to pay off for finishing last inefficiency. Football league What is that two ways. My favorite ones like. I think the tattoos are great. You know like the when losing the league has to get a cut to chosen by the winter. I think madden I've seen people that have to. They have to play in it to go into a parade to enter into like a local raid. You know they're they're float is very loser. And that's they go through sort of you know way to the crowd. Those are pretty good so those are my favorites. Just sort of watch you know. There's another one that. I love where i've seen this a couple of times. Where remember the famous. Even game of thrones where she he has to walk through the streets chain chain chain. You a couple of weeks do that. Where the loser. The league has to basically an in in their boxers. And they're wearing a assignments that's fantasy loser sandwich board and then everyone in the league is dressed up in robes you with bells. Shame shame shame and they walk through town because in terms of ones that i think are doable. You know if you if that's too intense regionality. 'cause i've only seen one league do this one is. They went to like an elementary schools. They'll have those eight foot hoops those basketball hoops that are like only eight feet tall for little kids right so they all went to an elementary school and lose the league had to stand under the basket where the rest of the league dunked on him they all got the chance to come and dunk on him videotaped it and they you know they did slow motion slow motion and music and you know like sportscenter highlight reels. You know they're hanging on the rim and putting their legs around them. You know a lot shack and like you know you really Haven't so. I thought that was really really creative. I'll give you to more than i think are super creative off the top of my head. One is One is that the loser league has to display a fat head..

"Juju is a big physical receiver. Johnson is not small, but he certainly can't match up size wise right to Smith Schuster. Smith. Schuster is a good receiver, Um You know, I think the past game is going to be different for the Steelers. I think you're going to see more play action. I think, uh, I guess what I'm waiting to see is Ben played almost exclusively out of the shotgun a year ago. I'm very curious to see now that they have Najee Harris. If Ben is more under center and the run games, a little more conventional and traditional, and then they work. The play Action pass came off that Ben has been notorious for not being a big fan of turning his back to the defense. And, you know, obviously, if you do conventional play action with the quarterback under center, your quarterback has to turn his back to the defense. Right. And yeah, And if if it does, indeed go that direction, um I mean, look at last night, the Cowboys lose that game to the to the I don't know if you've seen any of the Tampa Babe. Um Tampa Bay Dallas Game. Most of the tape, right? Um, uh, you know, a guy like Ezekiel Elliott, who's a franchise kind of running back. They got big money invested in him. He gets the ball 11 times. Is the league. I mean, Is art or the Steelers. Really going to buck the trend that is everywhere else in the National Football League, set perhaps Baltimore and start handing the football off 25 times a game. Well, I think there's other teams that do do that, Steve, But there's no question people would argue. It's a passing league. I don't know if it's sustainable to have Dak Prescott dropped back 60 plus times every week and because it's week one, and they played a buck's defense. That is really, really good against the run. We don't know if that's the M O for the Cowboys going forward. Or if that was a function of the opponent last evening, so that that's hard to answer. Um I I just took with the revamped online with been a year older. Ben does not move the way he used to. I I just don't know if it's viable to have been dropped back by choice. 45 50 times a game which they did in a number of games a year ago. Then why draft Najee Harris? Right? Yeah. I think they will have a lot more balance to their offense. And I do think Ben is going to be under center a little bit more, maybe than even he would prefer based on what we're hearing out of Pittsburgh with new OC. Matt Canada. What about Friar? Move, though, Greg? I mean, this is a guy that You know what people are trying to get a read on through the course of the preseason. Obviously, Eric Ebron is still there. But Friar Muth is, you know a pass catching tight end. I mean, so He's not probably the same all around player that Heath Miller was for them for years. He's more of a one dimensional tight end. How quickly do they incorporate him into the offense, knowing all of the receiving weapons they have at the receiver position? Yeah, well, it's funny. You mentioned Heath Miller because when I watched trying with 2019 tape, where it was a full season in 2020 only played four games, but I watched all those games as well. And I actually made the Heath Miller comparison because he's improved as a blocker. Uh, he was better in 2020 is a blocker, and he was in 2019. And he's very, very good on third down. He's a red zone weapon. You know, I think he'll be a factor for them. I think the question really becomes, will they play? Or how much will they play at at 12 personnel with one back in two tight ends when they have three really quality wide receivers, and I'm not sure we know the answer to that. But I don't think you draft Freimuth in the second round. Chris. I mean again. Now we're just spitballing here. You know, they draft Harris in the first round draft frame with the second round. I don't think you do that not to have those guys be a meaningful part of what you're going to do, right? Yeah. If you talk about the matchups if Emmanuel Sanders is in or out of the lineup, how that affects the defensive scheme that which if Sanders is out, it means we can you know Logically, that guys like Colby's, You're going to have more opportunities. What about Cole Beasley's matchup with Cameron Sutton down in the slot? Um, how do you think and We go around around about what we expect from Josh Allen? What This offense is going to look like I think it for me. We've had this conversation Brown, and I think it's gonna be more the same than it was last year. I think Josh Allen is that guy. To drop back and throw. I Oh, without question, I don't think look We talked about this last year as well. Do they want to run the ball? Yes, but I think what they want to run the ball successfully. They don't want to run the ball in big volume. You know when they do hand it off. They want the run game to be efficient and effective, But this is not going to be a running football team. So I think you're going to see much of the same. Obviously, coaches every offseason tweet things and and they'll tweak certain things they like they'll tweak. Get rid of some things maybe they don't like, but I think the overall philosophy of what this offense is with Josh and the receivers is not going to change. I think going in Greg, we knew with all the changes that that steel or offensive line was undergoing this offseason that it probably Was not going to be a well oiled machine in week one or look like one Anyway. Now, you know, in the last week Zach Banner, who was projected to be the starting right tackle goes on IR. They take a kora for and move him back to right tackle where he played last year, and they're starting the rookie more at left tackle. In a road environment as raucous is Buffalo facing a veteran pass rusher like a Mario Addison with AJ EPA, Nesa ready to come in the second wave behind him. Um, I'm just wondering based on what you saw Morris College tape. Is this guy up to the task? Or are we anticipating he's going to get a lot of help via slide protection or from a tight end? What? What do you anticipate there on the edge? I did watch Dan more. Well, you're probably not surprised by that. And I'm not probably not surprised by that either. I did watch Dan more, and he played in the sec. And to be honest with you and I don't I'm going to qualify this by saying I don't fancy myself as an offensive line guru by any meat, but I thought he was a good prospect again. I can't speak to all the nuances technique. But when you play in the sec and you're facing pretty good pass rushers, you know you're facing a lot of five star recruits in the SEC. I thought he did a very good job at left tackle. Uh, you know, at the end of the day that his goal was to stop guys from getting to the quarterback, and he did that. And you know you can debate where a guy should be drafted..

Okay dave can you hear me now. The plug in my gotcha juju spins schuster. Jomar chase kenny golladay. Juju jomar chase golladay. There's no way this is going to be three in a row. Chris this would be amazing I have chase golladay. Schuster smith schuster chase juju golladay much less confident about two and three then one. Dave won't look at me cursing. Why chase one ahead of Jujubes misuse i'm not a big fan of juju. Repeating what he did last year. I think. I actually think there's a chance he could still get like. Maybe seven or eight touchdowns in the yardage will be the same. I bet his catches go down. I bet it's targets go down. This is the steelers offense. That'll throw a little bit less than last year and i don't view him as a very efficient receiver. I think there's a real chance. The steelers offense takes a big step back this season. I'm i'm very worried about ben rothlisberger. I thought that way as well. And then when i started watching that offensive line in the preseason their last two preseason game specifically i felt a lot better i don't often sublime run up against starters though because i don't think they really were that much definitely not but at least they were who cares at the time is going to be a challenge. Because buffalo's got a bunch of defensive lineman but i it was a not. I saw enough to where i felt. Okay with it. It's more of our office burger for me. I'm just trying to learn a new ish offense for the first time in a decade plus playing under center more.

"A defensive tackle. Who's really gonna help fill out that Be one of those big bodies that that salon needs to have that four three defense. And i think that it's a it's a big step for the jets to keep adding to this team You don't the jets. Might not be a. Are they an eleven twelve win team right now. No are they better than the patriots right now. No are they had a better offseason and the patriots no but had the jets had a really good positive offseason. Were they improved. Their team didn't kill their cat and set themselves up to compete in the future. Absolutely they haven't hurt themselves one. So i'm really happy with that and i really think that the The jets are hidden in the right direction. I think coach salah is going to be good for them. I think joe. Douglas is really starting to prove that he's shrew gm that can get guys on a good deal and You know. I think he did a good job not overpaying for people you know like a lot of jet fans were talking about. During the week. Juju schuster spit the twenty four year. Old actual actually former teammate of sam donald at usc it would been real easy to get carried away and try to overpaid juju schuster smith who signed a big time hometown contract with the steelers twenty four years old. He probably figured smith probably figured to himself. You know what. I'm gonna good situation with the steelers but i wouldn't mind a change even if it's not this year maybe next year. So what he did was. He gave himself a chance to sign a one year contract. We still making seven million seven million signing bonus. He's his only cap. Hit of one million. I think the steelers really are being killed cat but then after this year where you know who knows who knows what happens. Maybe when the super bowl maybe they don't maybe either way then retires so the steelers are going to be taking a step back next year. I think smith is thinking to himself. Let me stick with rothlisberger for this one year See if we win the super bowl and if we don't see what happens next year. He'll he still going to be twenty five years old hitting the market is a free agent. he's still going to have a lot of money pocket already from this year. So smith you know. I think he made the right choice for himself this year. But don't be surprised because there was the rumblings. Maybe he becomes a nick next year. A neck i got the nickname on. Maybe he becomes a jet next year. So you you've got to give that to To schuster smith for for sticking with that as a and you know so the the jets really the like. I said they're they're setting themselves up right now. They still have to first round picks this year..

"The confidence who's idiotic him. You can't You don't see that with Mick. He's not a perfect player, but what he's got arm talent. He was the number one overall pick for a reason. And I think it's too fancy. He's kind of unlocked him. Look. You don't want to ride Baker Mayfield. He's not. I don't think he's not gonna do it. Josh, Eleanor Patch Mahomes, but you could win with him, especially when you've surrounded him with the offensive line that they have their commitment to the run. They've got shoving hunts along with one of the best offensive lines in football. You let him play action, and his long is like your clothes. And if he doesn't get outside himself where he thinks, Oh, I could I could make every throw right? You could win with Baker made for sure, but they playing really tough division to She got to be careful. I mean, Baltimore is going to come back. They're going to be a the same solid team. They're going to score points during the regular season. They play with Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh is in a state of flux. Who do you trust? More than my time with? I mean, Mike Tomlin is man that could be trusted. So if they're going to do something over there, and they're going to rebuild their quarterback, they're gonna move on from raw flesh burglars. They might have to do it. He's about to learn how to type It gets in this good about their receivers. Claypool Johnson, Schuster Smith. As long as they catch the ball. It's misused to him, too. As long as they catch the ball. I feel pretty good about having to move forward. He is going to realize for the first time. You know, when you don't have the quarterback, it's you know, maybe they can find another one. They've been good. You know, they're good for Buffalo is a great story. Great great story for for region of the country that Sometimes gets forgotten. And you see all the silliness in the table breaking that goes out there. They call themselves the Bills Mafia. Hey, great, fantastic, entertaining. It's fun to see him back. Fun to see those guys good with a good young quarterback, Third year. Quarterback get things not Green Bay. Green Bay's awfully good. Who is indeed offensive coordinator over there. That was a hotshot. Yeah, Staley, Right, Right. Remember what you were telling me, boy, they'll play more nickel. They play more dynamic. Anybody else? More like boxes than anybody and Brian Baldinger broke it down. I don't know if you had a chance to see Baldinger yesterday on Twitter. He had like a seven minute piece on that I haven't seen yet. They ran a formation two backs. Shock information to backs three wide receivers. No tied at no time, you know, and they like to do that than emotion. One of the backs out, lone remaining linebacker had to go out. They had five front against five. Five against five. Somebody's got to win. Now an offensive lineman doesn't have to win. Offensive linemen can have a tie and went and win tie goes to the offensive lineman like this situation, not to the deal. I'm in D lineman has to win to make a play. And there they were in Iran. It nine times. They passed out of it also, and they had they bombed them. And if the linebacker went there were man. They knew it. The linebackers stayed. They started switching up. Then they knew they were in his own, and they knew exactly what they were by design. That's what they like to do and listen. When you do something defensively, you do it while you like to stick with it. But you give somebody time to go ahead and game plan against two weeks they had. Yes. Oh, look at that defense, and they found something to go against that. Your magical floor looks like coaching there. That's great coaching the offensive genius. The mat. That's an offensive genius in the division. I mean, helps when you got the quarterback, but it doesn't hurt two years in a row in the NFC title. How about was hard Pull the Jovon whims.
