"Of what the bruins would like to be. Good at drafting. Good at drafting. You look Braden point. Ross Colton, Anthony cirelli, Andre pilat. None of those guys are, you know, first round picks. And there's more. There's more on that roster. You can look at the third and fourth lines. You look all over the roster. And again, like vasilevsky was a first round pick, but still, I mean, you look at the roster and you go, that's a team that drafted well. Yeah, no, it's that. And even if we want to talk about Colorado, of course, you can look at the avalanche and be like, well yeah, you just got to draft a generational center and a generational defenseman. You get to go. It helps quite a bit. You want to become a car. Like, oh yeah, I could see why a lot of teams like that guy. But I think you look at, as you said, Tampa and the way they've drafted and the way that they can, again, relinquish those first round picks to put themselves over the top. I mean, how many times have we seen it, whether it's Blake Coleman, whether it's Barclay goudreau, Nick Paul, Brendan Hegel, all these guys that you can sacrifice that first run talent because you've got the scouting department in the organization in place that you can identify talent in the second, third, fourth round. Not to say that every time you're going to draft a brayden point or an akita kourov, but even you look at gallic Ross Colton who I think was a fourth round pick. That's a guy that's Vermont. Yes, that's a guy that scored. I think it was what the game winning goal, a series clinching goal, I think, against Montreal. I want to say, that was a bruins player. It was like didn't hind and people would be celebrating didn't hide in the streets. It never have to buy a drink. Over at the hop. But again, it's one of those things where they just identify talent all across the board. And when you've got a strong scouting department in an established organization, you can give up those first round picks to get you that town that puts you in a position to get you over the top over a playoff series. I mean, even look at Colorado, the fact that, you know, you look at Joe sagging what he's done there, whether it's trading for a gala devonte, who was in kind of a cap issue there with the islanders taking advantage of that..

"Look at the free agent signings You know they have failed over and over again. Over the years draft the drafts he was involved with before being the gm because he was you know. He was up there in regard the scouting department as well and making a lot of decisions. That point He's failed us. You know our organization for the last twenty years you know. He's basically responsible for putting those teams together for a good amount of those and We're kind of you know at the bottom of the trades. I mean think about it. We traded you know a loss in mckennie. We felt that he was going to add to our linebacking crews year and the guy didn't even make the team out of camp. I mean you know you have to evaluate players and you have to have some understanding of what it's gonna take to get them on the field and the become a you know a positive impact on your team. And he just hasn't been able to do that. You know in every way shape or form so he does have to go in my opinion. I think that It's a no brainer at this point. No brainer yeah really. I mean have you ever seen a guy this worse you know a mike and picking like running back when he signed off rita. I was like what why why. This guy is a history of injury. By the way greer sees a guy injured they immediately. We gotta either sign him or draft him right. You know if you're an injured guy. Miami's got a spot for you and you was. You wanna laugh on this. When i i went down there for the for the for the for the practice. My buddy does radio down there. Andrew court and i use owned radio stations to grow together and coach. I see the for. The facility is with south would baptist hospital. Now i look at him. I go i figured it out. That's what the dolphins doing this where we get screwed up player because we come kind of deal with baptist hospital in order to to get these guys somehow make shiny miami because look at the guys reciting. I'll do my clothes. And then we can have a little open discussion about it. Because i know alex's chomping at the bit to make a couple more points especially about running back so I didn't like his promotion from gm to veep leave operations or whatever you know the lord and master of personnel When it happened because when we fired gas we were ringing. The bell gaces pure and competence. That we were ringing this funeral bell every week on the podcast and You know just counting down the days until we fired him from pretty early on that season But in the end. I at that point you know. Greer was the gm and we felt that he should go to because he just wasn't hitting a high enough percentage of the picks that were being made And you know i understand. That tannenbaum was getting a lot of blame for that. But the person that was making the picks wasn't tanenbaum. He was doing the terrible contracts and stuff It was really greer clear. That was making the pick so When he was hired even to the gm spot in the first place I wrote a little article and published it at. You know we weren't doing a podcast or anything like that time. And i said it was mostly about tanenbaum and it was addressed a ross here businessman. I'm businessman i coach business. People right and so what. I'm hiring somebody for leadership position on my team..
"scouting department" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"Our slider guys, some guys, I change up guys, and you have to have a great manager and a great scouting department to know what teams weaknesses are, what specific hitters weaknesses are and kind of mix and match that way. So I think that's ultimately the goal for the Red Sox, but it's easier said than done and it takes, it takes a great pitching development system and the miners, which I think the Red Sox are getting a lot better at that over the last few years, but historically, that has been probably the biggest weakness as an organization that's developing pictures. The one thing that I don't think Alex Cora always gets enough credit for is kind of getting a feel for the temperament of the picture and who can handle backend situations end of the game situations like the 9th inning and who's just not comfortable in that spot. And I think, you know, early in his career, I think there was questions about Matt Barnes and that in that role. And I think Alex Cora has kind of massaged him into feeling a little bit more comfortable in that role. Would you agree with that? Yeah, mostly. I mean, I think I'll be honest for basically Barnes this entire career I've been almost the number one fan of Matt Barnes so I think I've been a little higher on him than most people throughout his career. But I do agree that Korra has definitely made it more comfortable in that role. And I do think that that is number one among core's characteristics as a managers as ability to connect to players and like you said, not only to be able to figure out who can handle those situations, but get guys who are maybe on the borderline to feel more comfortable in those situations. And I mean, he talks about it a lot and it can be frustrating on a day to day that he has a plan and he communicates that plan to the players and sometimes it seems like he should probably change that plan based on the game flow, but he's very good at sticking with what the players know are going to happen. And that's a big part of being able to build a successful bullpen as having everybody know their roles and know when they're going to come in and just be ready for what situation they're going to be thrown into.

"And rick on the news of the week dipoto getting the promotion and of course service getting the contract extension first of all on jerry to baseball president of baseball operations. I mean he did something that is not. You don't hear about it very often. It's you know to tell the fan base. Were not going to be very competitive for a couple of years and it's going to take awhile can be career suicide. But he's been rewarded and it's got service. I was just so pleased to see the skipper. Get an extension. Because he's been there through some lean times and you look at their team guys are getting better and that's got to be a reflection on him to some degree. Yeah you know what. That was a really tough decision to make. When you're asking the fan base to wait another two or three or four two or three years after they waited so long but it was the right decision to do you know. After that two thousand eighteen season he took a look at veteran ball club. That was maybe going. In the opposite direction. He had an opportunity to turn things around with draft picks and making key trades. And i asked him what was what was the The the trade that really sparked they turn around and the rebuilt he says it was the trade with the mets sending canola contract along with the diaz. Betsy get jared kellner. Get justin done a lot of other players that trait but those were the two key pieces that really started all moving in the right direction and it was the right thing to do then. He continued to make trades. Really good trays aquarian. Gop crawford from philadelphia for gene cigar. So the veterans were going in. He stacked up the organization with so much young talent. The scouting department did an amazing job. Trapped in logan. Gilbert was the first three years ago now here. he is pitching great baseball ear in two thousand twenty one.

"Here. So, by the way, I want to address the the Russell Westbrook thing. Oh, basket sexual from YouTube said, who the Super Chat? Thank you said, who do you think the Lakers should draft off? I still liked Ray Murphy the third a lot. I still like bones Highland. The impulsive side of me, says, take bones Island, right? Just because he's going to be so much fun. I love watching. This guy played basketball. The analytics side of me, says, Trey Murphy. The third, his skill-set is what the Lakers need three and D player good-sized can contest. I like him a lot. Either one of those guys would be great but you know what, there's a lot of guys who would be great. Chris Duarte right cam Thomas you can talk me into. There's a lot of guys that could be great. Jaden Springer like there's a lot out there. Okay. So yeah, it was Ben gruba. If he makes it my goodness defensively, he could be incredible. This, this guy could be a first-team all-nba Defender, right? Like there's a lot of guys that would make a lot of sense. For the Lakers 22 if they keep their pick. So I'm not going to I'm going to try not to lock in on any particular player. I do think it's interesting that there were rumors about the Lakers trading back and to me that just speaks to the depth of the draft that they feel like they're going to get somebody pretty good even if they trade back and they're going to use that in order to pick up, maybe another draft pick and have another young guy cost control and use those guys to help fill out the roster would be interesting to see do we see like a Josh Hart asked move remember the Lakers jump back two spots in the draft I believe his 2017. Drafted Josh Hart picked up an extra second-rounder for their trouble. Use that second round around Thomas Bryant the Lakers know how to draft this team. Just does their their scouting department. They do a great job. Their hits are way more often than their mrs. So if she was able to pick up an extra pick by trading back, I'm going to look at it as a win because they're going to be able to snag to solid players that I think can contribute if their track record is any.

"One i'm wondering You know when you have a player and fernandez who is so skilled with the racket and make so many balls and changes direction so well against someone who hits his biggest madison keys. It was a very interesting clash ultimately. It's just the player who is more. Who has more physically ready at. This level was the one who who came through our. We like under salving underrating madison keys. Because her top gear we all know it can look very very good. Just hasn't been healthy and forever I agree with era with all of your now says there by the way jeff and i are accepting resumes. If you'd like to join the scouting department at serena williams power tennis country club so just you know slipped me if you i think. Your resumes pretty clear cut. I'm just gonna say the spots years if you want because we do need a tiebreaking vote. But no i would agree with everything you said there. I call tomjanovich garbin. Russa point seven five just because like the body types the length of the above. She's got a lot of things she can do. Nothing too overwhelming but again pretty straightforward day. Herzog's a tricky out on clay. And just again. That bottom quarter is wide open. She's absolutely in the mix sedans six four hand it built for clay court and then daniel collins we all know. She's a semi-finalist grand slam before when she's clicking she can beat. Anyone that match for serena prime time tennis now on the men's side. You know my finnity for pedro martinez tara who gets knocked off in straight-sets by stefanos tsitsipas. Six three six four six three. And yet i feel like i know we were talking about this before him. It was a pretty impressive for a day for my boy. Pmp i really liked what he what i saw from him. He just kind of has everything. He's strong he's physical. He's got power on both the forehand and the back end side and he's got that modern you know fast racket on the forehand generates lots of top spin. I thought the the serve was was good enough. Nothing overwhelming but for his size. It's kind of to be expected. And he he kind of looked like somewhat of a miniature version of cpt poss and at a at a lower level. so i thought he. He performed nicely for himself. Now i agree and that seeks to pass beat him in straight-sets speaks to the fact process a content. Like if i mean if he wins it that's a whole nother story win seats. You get semifinals finals. I mean he's the five seat. It's not gonna shock everyone as everyone's pick but you know a lot of people are saying that they doubt stefanos tsitsipas move. Actually no one is saying that. A lot of people are saying He's hitting his prime and it's very very like. This is the sort of win that we saw roger federer to have for fifteen years. Yeah because it's a it's a player. Who's twenty four years old..

No doubt Bill we appreciate the time all the best to you is the interim general manager. Thank you. Thanks my voice of the Rockies Mike Rice with Rocky's interim general manager Bill Schmidt, who has said he does not think this needs to be a rebuilding year for the team. He also said he would take the GM job full time if offered to him. Yeah, I wonder when they're gonna make that decision I would think sooner rather than later. Well, if they did sound like it was gonna be the case for the rest of the season, at least initially, and maybe that's before they decided to point you know, Bill Schmidt, but I mean, initially, they said all the way to the end of the year as they've, as he said.

And obviously had an in with the head coach of the JAG wars since it was his head Coaches, University of Florida. The tightest for 10 Tebow. He refused to do that. When he came out of it and for right for good reason. Hey, made a pile of money is a first round draft pick of the Broncos is a quarterback. I was on the sidelines for the playoff game that he quarterbacked the overtime win over the Steeler against the Steelers. And that's what I remember about. A quick story. I'm doing the sidelines of the game. Might We have family in Denver right in the Colorado region, but ton of them cousins, aunts, uncles, all right, So my wife accompanies me to the game because she's gonna visit family while I'm working right, So I got her asylum. She pre game. She's down there were walking around and she says, Why is this to bow? So why do people hate him and yell about him and then love him? What? What's the deal with him, and I go well, he's this guy's a tremendous guy. But he, you know he didn't You know he's strong. He's limited because he's a quarterback. What's going on?

"Chaos game is about being assertive sure that we uphold our mechanics and are the integrity of our mechanics. And it's about making sure that we apply the rules effectively to someone. That's on a ten day contract and someone that signed a max deal and if we can continue to drive towards those goals that i like our chances even though they're going to be imperfections one of the things that george young said that i i. I love this phrase and a bias towards it but george john was the you should know on living in new york. It was the longtime president of the giants. I believe if. I'm if my memory is bright. I hope that i'm i'm remembering that right then. He became part of the league office but he said why is it. That officials are the only group that are judged against perfection instead of excellence. And i think that even when we're excellent we have things we can grow on officials. Unfortunately when we're not perfect that gap between excellence and perfection is what players teams feel slap. Aided in and i understand that they they work really hard but we remain excellent even with our imperfections. And i think that's something. I like to get out because i believe it and the data supports not just that i believe that but the data supports all right. Well i guess. Jeff van gundy and i will both be disappointed by. The lack of the idea isn't statistics suggestion. Box full. okay this would be. This'll be a great project for spurt for somebody out there. They could just track it themselves. Somebody like they could. Just you know blog it like nba whining dot com and they can create their own niche a statistical database. Be me. it won't be a couple more before. I let you go just about staffing the. Nba is an all time high number of women on staff this year. Five female referees and we had for the first time ever to women reveling in the same game in january. It was natalie saga my pronouncing her last go sago natalie. Sago and jeddah schroeder yom. What's the significance to you of. Those milestones is diversifying the staff along gender lines continuing priority and are there more women in the pipeline while forty two percent of our g. league is women officials so there are certainly more people in the pipeline we have an elite camp and a mid level camp and a grassroots camp even prior to getting into the g. league and i would suspend without having the numbers in front of me that's much closer to fifty fifty in terms of women and men. We have another top hundred that haven't made it to the grassroots camp that we are monitoring our scouting department does an incredible job. Mike bantom bob delaney predecessors in these roles prior to me a wonderful job in setting up a pipeline and a scouting department and they look it over three thousand officials a year and the marching orders for that.

We had a strong safety. Antoine winfield junior behind him. Mike edwards and john. John hagen and that at free safety we had jordan whitehead and andrew adams in twenty nine teen mike edwards was a starter and we also had deer ian stewart remember him. He was kind of depth older. I think he had come from the chargers so we lost him. Twenty twenty I don't really have much to say about this group. Besides antoine winfield. Junior is just a coal mine. I know that dr- well. I can't wait to see what you know. We don't care about the draft normally. But i'm excited to see this draft class because i think jason late is just such an amazing. I don't know there are whole scouting department is just incredible. And i don't know anything about college so i'm glad that they're saying competent. Comic group that they find these anti winfield juniors going to be a very very good bucket here player for a long time and the guys play. He's a rookie. And he's out there doing stuff. Oh you don't even see veterans doing. You're like wow man. This guy really understands the game. Yeah and you know. I said this a few years ago i said vita getting viva drafting. A hell made up for anything. Jason light ever did he could he could. He could tank for the rest of his career to me. Just getting the guys that special and but you know to get antoine winfield. I mean what was anybody even looking at this guy. And he's you know. He's a top level safety in his rookie year. I know he just incredible. He played ninety seven percent of the snaps. Hit a thousand thirty four snaps and he's always got that smile on his face. Call him mighty mouse. Yeah he's got stakis is always grinning. Yeah he had. Ninety four tackles which was twenty more than jordan whitehead jordan wind had ahead seventy four and they both started the same number games but jordan only got eighty six percent of the snaps and then he had six passes defended whereas jordan had four. He had four quarterback heads jordan three. So they were pretty close. That was although antoine had won t have fell jordan white and had had nine must have been the way that they were used them.

"Michael Parsons would be great. I'd love to see him and the handle of Honolulu Blue. Jeff. I, Freddy. Yeah. I mean, Brad homes, especially in the scouting department for the Rams, huh? He's drafted some amazing defensive guys, especially out of the oven and first round pick and they got like guys like John Johnson, Great safeties and so like, like Ryan was saying, I think I'm gonna go defense. But more importantly it Z Do is Brad and just the general all the front office have a player in mind they like because that's that's important. If you have a player you really like, even if it means moving up. Go get him because this is the year. But if not, like I said, you have the seventh pick Michael Parsons. If he's there, I think our defense is definitely the way to start because We were God awful. I mean, Jared Goff. You're like we can just drop playmakers and say, Let's get it with your golf. Got a state matter? Yeah, This isn't mad, and we can't sign free agent. You know, defensive players, So I mean, let's be honest. We're to rebuild. So, like I said, go after defense. Um, you know, I heard reports of possibly trading down for other picks. I mean, if you can trade down and you have a guy on defense is still there. Why not? But like I said, Lou, go defense and unless you got a guy in mind, but I'm confident brain will figure that out, especially for the defense. I think linebacker is also gonna be a key factor in the off season, not just in the draft in free agency as well because Delights of I and J. R. Davis. They both looked like Rocky Balboa chasing the chicken around in that training montage to disgrace. I mean, both those and Dan Campbell as much as I love the guys intensity. I love Jared Davis. This guy's gonna be legit. Uh, man, we even say that for the last five years, Uh, maybe it's Patricia kind of ruined up. Who knows, But I would let you date this walk. It was up to me after the first five years, Tyler Weaver. Reliance you doing for agency at seven when I have a hot take, Really? Because I don't really I'm not too familiar with any names in the draft. But how about you? Go on, get a running back, established the running game and Nagy Harris, Right. So you could throw that big old bowling ball around the gold gold e don't know about pick number eight, making a running back the same.

"Keeping my fingers crossed with all that before we get into the game sam Obviously some huge huge news over the weekend The rams traded a goff goffin's two first round picks in third round. Pick to the detroit. Lions for bath you stafford. I kind of had an inkling is just in talking to To some folks throughout the week last week that something was definitely up the way Sean mcvay couched The jared goff situation and then less need general manager described it On some some interviews and just talking to some people that i know something was definitely up. And i give the rams a lot of credit. They don't do things necessarily the way everyone else does it. And i think that from afar when people look at it They're not you know it's like what are they doing But there's a lot of confidence in that building sam that you know. And then just to put this in perspective by trading those two first round picks that they did They're not going to have a. I rob bell have gone unless they make a trade to get one between now and the time frame than about ready to reference. If they don't they're going to go have gone from two thousand sixteen to two thousand twenty four without having a first round pick in fact the last first round pick that they executed was for jared goff in two thousand sixteen so They trade away first round picks their philosophy. Is you know were going to go for the proven player. We'll give up a first round. Pick which is if he at best sometimes especially where they've been drafting for the proven player for brandin cooks for marcus peters for jalen ramsey You know so. So they'll do that and obviously not for matthew stafford Feeling like you know. We believe that we're going to be able to upgrade. But on top of that there's two other elements that number number two is they have a real strong belief within their scouting department and their general manager and that group that they're gonna be able to find talent beyond the first round and then they also believe that their coaches are going to develop that talent at lastly they feel like with the cat people that they have in place Pity stars is heads that office. They're gonna be able to figure out all that part of it to the the all the salary capping implications of how to manage it mitigate how to work around it all of that so they they have confidence in that building that they're going to be able to put it all together in spite of doing things that maybe other people are scratching their head at. I gotta give him credit sound for for being aggressive for and for being creative and not standing pat. They felt like they could get better at quarterback. Jared goff is a good quarterback. They wanted to get even better and so they roll the dice and make a big trip for about the stafford. I can't blame. I can't blame him. I think i think staffer in surly. I think he him a golfer in the same class of quarterback per se where they're not necessarily the kind of quarterback we talk about with a with a you know the the top's your guys can elevate everybody around but in that class i think stafford definitely is a little bit more talented than golf. Gives the rams more upside and it feels like yeah..

The biggest news of the weekend was the trade the trade between the Rams and the Lions and the quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Jared Goff. Stafford, go to the Rams golf going to the Lions and bring in some company with him the light. I mean, think of what the Lions pulled off their gentlemen. New general manager. New coach G. M's been in charge for a couple of weeks was picked from the scouting department of the Rams to go to Detroit. They had a disgruntled quarterback, and Matthew Stafford, who's been good for much of his career, and the Lions have never been able to be as good for the most part, as he has been, if that makes he's been better than the team, if that makes sense. And so frustration led to him saying, and there was a mutual agreement. They were going to trade him. He wanted out so the lions with everybody knowing that Matthew Stafford didn't want to be there. Able to flip Matthew Stafford. To the Rams for Jared Goff and Jared Goff. He's okay. He was never as good as everybody thought or hoped He might be. Clearly the Rams reached a fork in the road with him earlier this season, Sean McBain company where they saw you know what this guy's this can't. We can't do it. What we what we want to do with this guy, and then kind of things deteriorated during the playoffs and And it just became a mess. So who knows what he could be in new surroundings, But the Lions trade Stafford, they get Goff. They get a third round pick this year, They get a first round pick in 20 to 2022. They get a first round pick in 2023. They traded their quarterback. Got a quarterback. And got to future first round picks. And the Rams. For whatever reason, The Rams just don't like for trap picks they have now given up or will have given up, including the 2022 2023. They will have given up their first round pick in seven consecutive seasons. Seven consecutive seasons without a first round pick. So you get Stafford, who gets kind of Ah, new lease on life. A change of scenery gets to fit as many think We'll plug in quite nicely with Sean McVeigh's offense with the Rams. Um the lions, who are rebuilding Get a quarterback to it least kind of hold down the fort maybe gets comfortable there. The offense fits in better personalities benefit whatever it is. Maybe he performs over the next two years. If he doesn't they can move on from him, but they also get his part of their rebuild. The Rams first round pick in 2022, their first round pick in 2023. Reading Matt Bowen, the NFL analyst over the weekend, who said Stafford is a prime fit for make based system and with his arm talent. I expect l A to attack more vertically down the field couldn't do that, with golf might play the Rams discussed for draft capital once seemed reckless, but it's hard to question their strategy. Considering the success of the McVeigh era. They've won at least nine games in all four seasons without First round picks A Dan Graziano said the Rams were really desperate to get rid of golf, which is what we were hearing around league middle of the week. Also, Stafford's going to have a monster year and make phase of McVeigh's offense. I believe How often do you see? Something like as big is that big money quarterbacks mean Matthew Stafford, since coming to the league in 2000 and nine has thrown for over 45,000 yards and 218 touchdowns. Golf was the first pick in 2016. He made a Pro bowl in 2017 made a Pro bowl in 2018 and is thrown over 100 touchdowns the last five years. I mean, it's not like he's he's a bottom barrel quarter base, probably more. Middle of the pack, probably maybe even slightly below the break even point in the league. If you're the lions, you get that plus two number ones. I will absolutely take it when my quarterback before Saturday was a guy who did not want to be there and everybody knew didn't want to be there. All right. When we come back, we'll turn the corner. We gotta head down the stretch. We're out of eight John Brandon show with Dan and Terry. They'll talk with Mike Trestle, and we'll talk with the John Cunningham.

"scouting department" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Goodyear more driven. Earlier we had Michael Rothstein on talking about the Lions point of view is Matt Stafford now joins the L. A Rams. This is from ESPN. NFL insider Adam Schefter, who first reported that the lines will send their long time quarterback to the Rams in exchange for two future first round picks, a third round pick, and quarterback Jared Goff. Now, George Sedano with ESPN. Ella joins us to talk about things from the Ram side, George. Great to hear your voice, man. How are you? I'm great. Hope you were well. And you and yours are all safe. Yuhas well, and certainly we have to talk about this trade. Matt Stafford. That era ends in Detroit and the golf era ends with the Rams as well. Your initial impressions when you heard this trade Not surprised Les need. I'm sure everyone's heard the press conference he had earlier this week about not really committing to Jared Goff saying he's a ran for now. That's certainly got people's attention, and we had less on our radio show My afternoon drive show on ESPN Los Angeles. That same day, and we pressed him and It seemed fairly evident at that point that Jared Golf was no longer going to be a ram. And I'm not really surprised. I mean, you can go back further than just that press conference. Really? If you look at short, Big day, Historically, he never runs his players under the bus. Never never calls them out publicly. You know, his relationship with them is so great in that locker room because he never does that. And after the Miami did this season, the Rams went to Miami. They had a bunch of turnovers. Jared fumbled the ball. He threw a ton of interceptions. It was the first time in all the years that I've covered Sean McDonough. Where he legitimately said This guy is the reason we lost. And at that point I'm like, Oh, there is trouble in the waters here for sure. So He had multiple games like that. Sean came on our show during the season after that game and really didn't make any excuses for Jared like he was very much In line with making Jared understand that he was the biggest culprit in some of their losses. So I'm not really surprised. Jared hadn't had good years here the last couple of years, at least not Way he had previously when he led them to the Super Bowl. And we have a situation where it seems fairly evident that Sean McVeigh got the best out of Jared Goff, and he no longer had much useful. About Stafford being the one that comes to the Rams your reaction with the Lions making this deal with the Rams, and you know there were other quarterback names out there. I'll look at the Shawn Watson. I know that there's a lot of question marks still there. But what do you make of the Rams pulling the trigger? If Matt Stafford I think it makes sense. First of all it Brad Homes with the Lions general manager is from the Rand Street, He worked for less need. Who's the general manager of the Los Angeles Rams? So You think it was just an easy deal for them to make because Brad obviously part of the scouting department that you know work on drafting Jared Goff, number one Overall, he might have been part if I recall correctly. He was also part of the group that gave him a big contract. But you look at Matt Stafford. And you're looking at a guy who He's tough as nails right place through injuries is certainly got a bigger armed and Jared Goff. He's certainly more mobile than Jared golf and he is desperate to win. And I think that that's the exact combination that the Rams wanted because the waves of the number one defense in the NFL, so they look at their quarterback situation and they have a very pedestrian quarterback at this point. Almost any metric. You look at Jared Goff, and he's probably in that bottom third of starters, Where's Matthew Stafford is probably closer to that top 10 rage. He may not be in that top 10, but he's right there. He's in that second tier. I think of quarterbacks. That you can win football games with, especially if you've got the weapons around him. The Rams have the weapons on offense. They've got a good running game next one offensive line. They've got good receivers when everyone's healthy, which was an issue this past season and as I mentioned the number one defense and an excellent special teams. And by the way I mentioned showing the day earlier. You're talking about one of the brightest, smartest young coaches in the NFL. So I just think that if it makes all the sense in the world, it's a clear upgrade. Over Jared Ball, and I think the Rams felt like if they had competent to above average quarterback play. They could be the team that's in the Super Bowl next week. I think the Rams went up a few 100 point thing. It was like, plus 1200 or something to that effect. When this trade God announced now how much of an immediate impact do you see here? How much of an immediacy overall Do the Rams have now that they have a star quarterback like Matthew Stafford and all the positives that you say that Stafford will immediately be able to Inject himself into this system. Look, I think that if you look at Sean McDaid, he's a quarterback friendly a coach's You have right, like, think about it. They they brought in the guy John Woolford to play some chair golf. And played really well for them. This is a guy who you know was a German right like he was playing in the NFL prior to arriving with the ranch, and he got him to win. Off football game in the National Football League like that's how good they are, As far as their coaching staff is concerned, I know that Vincent changes there are a lot of guys have fled because if you stand next to Shawn Bebe, clearly you're gonna get a job somewhere in the NFL. That seems to be the case. But at the end of the day, the most important part is that Shawn is there and what you've seen from Shawn over the last couple of years, and his wife and Matthew Stafford and him, we'll gel really well. Is that The players in the locker room. Whether it's on the offensive side or the defensive side, they believe in him. They know that their coach is going to have them ready. You got the sense that the players in that locker room Didn't feel like Jared Golf was the guy to get them over the hump. Matthew Stafford is well regarded in the National Football League. For the reasons I alluded earlier, whether it's toughness, big arm, etcetera, etcetera. I just think that You get to a point in your career where you want to win, And that seems to be the case with Matthew Stafford. He's given the city of Detroit everything he could. So I just think it's the perfect marriage because you've got a coach who is hyper focused on winning. And you know it's doing over the Super Bowl loss He had a couple of years ago to the Patriots and his laser focused on that task. And now you have a quarterback who also is desperate in regards to winning. So I just think With that match. With the Rams being hyper aggressive in general as a franchise if you look at them historically because they've been in l. A, they have made big, bold moves. This is a perfect setup for everybody. George Sedano with ESPN ELA joining us here on SportsCenter all night. Last question for you. When you look at Jared Golfs career with the Rams from start to finish. What do you think? How do you think we will think of Jared Jared Golfs tenure with the Rams when we look back on it. I think you look at Jared Golf as a guy who excels because he had one of the best young coaches in the sport and people forget Or maybe they don't. I don't know,.

"Try to bring in the right people. The right players on bond. We do that. I think it's you know, at some point we'll get there. You know, with no combine this year, George, I gotta tell you, man, I am so happy to have you in this space right now as the general manager. Because I understand your roots in the collegian world are there deep and they are plentiful and this is going to be a different year without the combine. No doubt it's gonna be a different year. Last year was different. You know, Alfred, we had the combine. Then it kind of shut down. So that was a challenge, And now we don't have the combine. So I mean this year, there's a chance we don't have any time, although I think I think the players are gonna have some pro days. But, um The good thing is, you know, I think we have a damage. We have a strong college scouting department here. It's a level playing field for the NFL. So anyway, we can. You know, we're gonna have to get an edge over the other teams and that you know that we're gonna have to figure out here the next month or two is how are we going to determine? You know if you don't see these guys work out if we don't have the testy members, how are we gonna figure out figure that out? Is that analytics? With ghost time. You know that. You know, you're really gonna have to rely on your area scouts getting all the background. Well, it's um it's gonna be very challenging, but I think I think we're up to the challenge. George. If we don't ask you this question, our listeners are gonna crush us. Obviously, Von Miller is out there. Justine Simons is out there. There's some very big decisions that need to be made. What's your time frame on those things? You know, I'm gonna You know, I'm probably in the next month, you know, or I'm going to sit down with all the players involved. Uh, with Richard Kado and and all the support here and then a swell, speak with the players and And so I don't think there's ah Ah, hard date right now. I'm just trying to get a lay of the land and they don't make those decisions. Will you know when the time necessary Well, I want to tell you that. You know, I was a guy who got the Denver in 1987.

"Like to do is a good fit for them. Yeah, and you're right, Dave. He's still a backup quarterback running back. Yeah, I wouldn't. I wouldn't take the music thing. I wouldn't put too much stock in that. I mean, I understand the point. But there are plenty of NFL teams that don't allow music. I don't know. Mean Austin High School, We play music. Just saying Colin Littleton will end things with you and Kayla news radio. Hey, guys, How's it going? Good s O just kind of emphasize the quarterback and draft point. You guys are talking about one thing That's kind of dumb. Founding to me is like you look at the Broncos pretty much in their whole history. All of the quarterbacks that were super super successful for the Broncos. They never drafted because, like I mean, technically, the Broncos didn't even draft John Elway. They got him in the trade in the draft. Obviously, we didn't drop Peyton Manning. True, Um Like the truth, the really like true homegrown quarterback the Bronx have had that we were most successful. It was Tim Tebow because we didn't drop Jake Plummer, either And other than that, you know, Tim Tebow is kind of our best quarterback that we drafted, so it's kind of Interesting to think, like not only coaches, but it's the scouting department as well. When it comes to the draft. Well, they true and again. I don't think the scouts get get off the hook, either. But there are teams that have had pretty good success. Quarterback without dreaming. New Orleans has been good for his long as I can remember with Drew Brees and the Saints didn't draft Drew Brees. So I don't I don't think it really matters how you do it. You gotta get lucky to take a quarterback in the first round and have him be the guy eventually be your franchise quarterback. You gotta get very, very lucky. To do that, But, um to me, it doesn't matter how it just matters. If you can find a guy that you can build around, and they haven't they haven't. I mean, Lester lock turns out to be the guy they have been able to do that. Certainly since paint retired. Absolutely, And it's crazy because you look at other teams and I felt like the quote unquote juggernaut teams they other than like you mentioned New Orleans. The other juggernaut teams have drafted their quarterbacks like the Patriots with Tom Brady. The Chiefs, the Packers Seahawks with Russell Wilson, Um, you know, other than other than the states. There has been a whole lot of teams that go out and get free agency with a veteran quarterback. Because they're veterans and their older so they don't really withstand as much is drafting that franchise quarterback. No, I agree. I agree. Good points, Kyle. Thank you, Um Hey, I think all valid points. Yeah,.
The Myth of Quarterback Hand Size
"So let's talk some measurements. That's what went down today. The consensus number one overall pick Joe. Pearls hand sized came in at nine inches. Listen to this. The last quarterback that man that small drafted first overall was jared. Goff BACK IN TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN GUYS. So that's some comparison it's annual. Nfl tradition every year were introduced to the incoming class of rookie quarterbacks. And we're told that a single measurement matters hand size but what if the metric is totally meaningless as the NFL combine unfolds in Indianapolis we investigate the connection between big hands and big production and ask whether Scouts are chasing a myth. I mean it's Tuesday February twenty fifth this is espn daily presented by ADT. Dave I was very self-conscious reading this piece because I don't know if you know this about me but I have tiny tiny hands. I have gigantic cans. Do you See come on tiny baby hands. Dave Flemming is a senior writer for. Espn his report on the NFL's obsession with quarterback hand size publishes ESPN DOT com today. So Dave yesterday was a big day for the quarterback prospects at this year's combine the annual release of the hand size measurements and the annual freak out about said measurements. Well I mean. It's like a national scouting holiday when the the QB hand size measurements. Come out because there is the belief that the distance between a potential NFL quarterbacks tip of his pinky and the tip of his thumb directly correlates to their success in the NFL. That's why we care just to give people sort of a framework here. What what is the big hand? And what is this small hand in football world red flags and NFL SCOUTING? Go up if your hand is smaller than nine and a half inches. But the guys who are said to have hands the size of Catcher's Mitts are. That's generally anything above ten inches. The normal size of adult humans hand is like eight and a half inches eight eight eight point seven five inches right now. Everyone is listening to this. Podcast is looking at their hands if they're under STEERING WHEEL WONDERING DO. I have two small hands. I've never thought about it until this very moment. Well Yeah and I think that is also part of it right that it's a myth or a theory or a legend that are virility is directly connected to the size of our hands that basically goes back to the beginning of time so in that sense. It seems logical that that we care about. How big a quarterback's hands are. What is the origin of the belief in the NFL world? That big hands equals good quarterback as far as I could tell were really took off with with Brett farve scouts and just people in general trying to quantify any way they could why this guy who was sort of a washout in Atlanta would go to the freezing cold and ice elements inside Lambeau field and become a three time. Mvp I mean. I think that's just human nature and scouting in general right that it's like whoa something weird like this happens. We want to be able to quantify it honestly. I think the there were some packers personnel. Who sort of wanted to claim credit for basically knowing in advance that he would be great because of his hand size and then what happens is human nature takes over right and people are like well. That's that's gotta be true. Look at Brett Farr for Lou peyton manning or look at Russell Wilson drew brees. I mean their hands are huge. So therefore air go right. All good quarterbacks have to have big hands breezing. Wilson are interesting examples. Because those were quarterbacks who were not universally seen as being sure things? Yeah in cases like that especially with Russell Wilson. You've got a really influential scouting and personnel department in Seattle right. That is sort of the envy of the rest of the League. And what happens is they. They can't decide. They're worried about picking him so high mainly because of his height and then one of the things that pushes him over the edge in their minds is the fact that he's got huge hands. I think the bigger the hands the easier it is to grip the football and let it rip so for me this this pointer finger right near the tip of the football and let spent basically he should be like seven foot seven if you go proportionately of for how big his hands are so the seahawks based on this data get pushed over the edge. They're like okay. We're GonNa Take Russell Wilson and then retrospectively. It's like Oh look at that. How genius that was that. We went by his hand size. And then that sort of proliferates the myth through all these other kind of envious scouting department's and the same thing for debris. I mean he's a short guy but he's got huge hands data on S. U. Y. When did you as a reporter? Who's been covering football for a long time? I start to doubt the correlation between hand size and being good quarterback I was at years ago at Jamarcus Russell's pro day at at Lsu and it was not good and as he finished up his workout. I walked out with a GM and a coach that I respected and I was like what did you guys think. That was very good and they both were like. Yeah but did you see his hands? They were huge. I think the coach even said it's like he's got an extra knuckle and I was like what that doesn't make any sense right. He could barely connect with his wide receivers on these on routes where there was no defense and they walked out of there going. Yeah but his hands are so huge. He's a can't miss prospect and ever since then really it was kind of like we need to look into this because it doesn't make any sense there have been exhaustive studies including one we did at ESPN. That went back over the last ten graphs and compared quarterback hand size to fumble rate per game and then Qbr overall there is zero correlation between the size of a quarterback's hand and their performance in the NFL. Zero correlation if anything it was in reverse the GUYS WITH QUOTE UNQUOTE SMALLER. Hands fumbled at the same rate and had a higher qbr than quarterbacks with bigger hands. It's like I don't understand. It takes two seconds to look this up to see if there's any correlation and what happens is you look at the data and you go. Well what's going on it's laughable coaches say? Oh hand size is more important than how Tala quarterback is I've read quote unquote draft experts. Who are saying you know in some situations. The size of a quarterback's hand is more important than his arm strength. What and Yes yes. It's never ending. You make a really important point story beyond questioning you know. The connection hand size measurements themselves are not very reliable. This the more you look into this it just gets sillier and Sillier and the fact that between the senior bowl and the combine and then pro day workouts on college campuses. There's no universally accepted way to measure a hand so you could go to the combine and where there's a ruler tape to a desktop and you have to put your hand down and they measure the distance between your thumb and your pinky and that's your hand size and three weeks later at your pro day. They might ask you to just hold your hand up in the air and they would spread a tape measure between your pinky and your psalm. And and that's your hand size one. You can lean into and spread your hands out on a desk. The only thing wrong with the theory of quarterback hand size is that it's fundamentally flawed on every single level if grip strength is more important. Sounds like you think it is. Why don't teams measure that? I honestly that's the million dollar question right. I think that they think that. There's a correlation between size and strength of a grip that's like measuring a kickers foot size to try and predict how long his field goals will be. I think that they think they're measuring for hand strength. And they're not they're measuring hand size and those are two completely different things. There's an entire cottage industry in the draft process of preparing these quarterbacks for you know the combine drills the interviews. Is there any preparation they can do? I can't believe I'm asking a question to make. Their hands seem larger. Yes absolutely there are players because they have no choice. That will hire your hand. Masseuses to loosen up the connective tissue in their hand just so that they can get that measurement over nine inches and sort of. Check that box off Brandon Allen. Who's now a backup in? Denver is a perfect example of that right. He went into the senior bowl. Didn't even realize hand measurement was a thing and just sorta held his hand up and they were like oh eight and a half inches. And everyone's like Oh my God his career's over and so between the senior bowl and the combine the masseuse that he was already working with spend a little extra time massaging his hand and then when he got to the combine he really concentrated on the measurement spread his hand out as far as he could and I think he got just under nine inches and again like the talk of the combine. Was this guy's magical hand masseuse. And he told me right that other quarterbacks with tiny hands we're blowing up his phone asking him what his secret was and and could they get the number of his masseuse coming up. How our brains allow this and other faulty? Nfl Scouting Practices to persist
Lakers, Lakers. And Frank Vogel discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"Lakers. Do not have a head coach there still in the process trying to figure out who that's going to be Frank Vogel. Was the latest interview for the job yesterday? The Lakers lack of a head coach at this point in the process will affect them in free agency, take it or shake shake it. I don't think that it will affect him at all. Because must like ilise miss preaching is that they have plenty of time to hire head coach and plenty of time through free agency to get I mean through this time to get it done before free agency. I think when you look at it this is about a what a month and a half to that you really got to buckle now and get it done. And I think they have plenty of time and doing it because you gotta remember the scouting department has already created what they feel the Lakers. What the boards with targets are head coach is going to be the closer at. What point does it? If it's not an issue now. And okay, it's not it's what is today may tenth and free agency doesn't start until July. So there is some time. But you don't want to hire the coach on June thirtieth and open up free agency the next day. When is the time on where it goes from not an issue to you know, what we got a problem here when you find the right person. I mean, no one's forcing the Lakers to hire a head coach BART's. Dateline is not like your taxes Aprofim team together get punished. So when they find the right person.
Report: Patrick Mahomes Could Land NFL's 1st $200 Million Contract
"Collar Murray is deciding right now, I don't know if it's as simple as like head versus heart. But he's choosing between the sport. He has loved most football. And the sport where he has already been a notable investment in baseball. He is already the ninth pick in the draft five point seven million dollars available to him. But part of this dynamic is the long term future for Colin Murray. And it's imagining what you would be if you hit your apex in both sports in the NFL three years is the time you must wait before renegotiating a new deal. And if you're a first round pick, your make it very good money. Right. I mean, like, I think lavar Jackson's total value was around six million dollars. But if you're the fifteenth pick in the draft, which I believe could be the case for Karla Murray, it might be closer to fifteen million dollars. But in the MLB sick about how long guys have to wait until they get the proverbial second bite at the apple right? I mean, most baseball free. Agency, see are twenty nine thirty years old Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are total outliers at the age of twenty six if because they were such proficient talents. They are able to play their precocious right like eighteen year old guys being called up to the MLB. We'll get commerce twenty one. So he's going to have like six years of service timer seven years of service time before he even gets a chance at a contract if he comes from the NFL, and he balls out and he's good enough to get a contract extension in three years two. Things are true one. It's going to be for a ton of money to it's going to be for more money sooner than navy. He would ever make it as MLB career like hitting that two hundred million dollar plateau on the MLB is not that easy soon enough. And I'm not saying every quarterback. Well, but we'll Patrick Mahomes will do is. He will reset the market soon enough because the salary cap is going up and the price tag of quarterbacks is going up. It's going to be that thirty seven thirty eight forty million dollars a year is the price for quality quarterbacks. But isn't that a big question Mark with Calum Murray, though, like how do we know that he is going to not only live up to the hype of Patrick Mahomes or even lesser any any, you know? Starting quarterback solid starting quarterback that it's gonna make a good contract. Calamari is five foot nine. We're in baseball. We kind of know what we're getting. There's less variables. We know. He's going to be a really good baseball player. It's a little easier to scout. And the athletics who have one of the best baseball scouting department's understanding that. That's the reason why they took him at number nine. Isn't there? A big bigger question. Mark on the football side. There is unquestionably a bigger question. Mark about that unquestionably question Mark on the football side in terms of will collar Murray scratched the top of the surface for him and that just like scratch, scratch the ceiling. I guess if I wanna make up a Frasier, right? So the bird in hand of baseball the night. Overall, pick is incredibly alluring. I'm just saying if color Murray's mindset is hey, I go to the highest level. I hit my ceiling in both sports. I don't know how you can possibly make the case that baseball has better long-term upside. I mean if Machado and Bryce Harper right now can't get the
Cowboys' Jason Garrett is now the odds-on favorite to be the first NFL coach fired
"Of Sean Payton. The Princeton Clapper is miscast as an NFL head coach and has nothing in common with self made men like Peyton or even Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones last night Sunday night football, tobacco made it clear Jones. These defy or gear. The Cowboys toss away a winnable role game to the Texans due to horrendous coach. The bad coaching extends well, beyond gears, ridiculous decision to punt on fourth and one in overtime, Jones's already on the record. Questioning that decision Garrett and his offense of coaching stabbed blue this game in regulation, the before, entering that transpired and over overtime within evitable with the game tied in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, Dallas had the ball at their own forty, seven and face. Second eight, given the trouble. The Cowboys had blocking JJ watt, and David and cloudy all night gares staff called the worst play of the night. They had deck Prescott dropped back to pass, turn his back on the defense fake to handoffs turn around and then look for receiver to throw the ball to guess what when Dak turned around JJ watt was sitting in his lap. And the next play was third and seventeen game over Jason Garrod is in over his head. Forgive me for this Marcellus, Gary, your stereotypical prep school. All Ivy league elite fast track to a position of power because his resume says, so not his accomplishments. This is what Jerry Jones needs to realize Jason geared and Sean Payton are not cut from the same claw Peyton earned every opportunities ever received. He was an undersized quarterback in eastern Illinois. He bounced around the elitist arena league as a quarterback. He was innocent coach at four different colleges and three different NFL franchises before being named head coach of the saints. The Princeton Clapper has coached to places two seasons with the dolphins and the rest with the Cowboys as a player. The Cowboys signed geared is their free agent quarterback because his dad was in their scouting department geared won. Two Super Bowl rings grabbing coffee for Troy Aikman and carrying a clipboard. Garrett was born slide into home plate. Peyton drew a walk stole second base. Reach third on an infield single and scored on a sacrifice. Fly the saints hired Peyton away from Bill Parcells, Dallas's coaching staff in two thousand six. When Peyton led New Orleans to the Super Bowl title in February of two thousand ten. Everyone started looking for the next Sean Payton.
Jets trade Bridgewater to Saints for third-round pick
"As suspected. It happened sooner than later. The New York Jets have traded teddy Bridgewater who was battling Sam darnold for the starting quarterback job. Sam darnold is now the officials starting quarterback for the New York Jets. They realize he's really good. He should have been number one. He dropped them at three. So the jets are going to get draft picks according to Adam. Schefter draft picks are coming to the New York Jets in exchange for Sam darnold, and this is what we theorize and the last forty eight hours is that when you add, this is what I said. Two days ago I went into this year thinking teddy Bridgewater starts and I still think teddy mornings a little bit better. But the gap is so close with darnold and Bridgewater. Are you better off the jets have one of the five easiest NFL schedules and it's real workable in the first six weeks. Trade teddy get draft picks, and just our Bill met offensive line. I don't. Here's another thing to throw out there. Khalil Mack jets have been rumored jets have Eytan elite safety, Jamal Adams, Tremaine Johnson at corner. Leonard Williams on an offensive line. They don't have a pass rusher. They were Twenty-eight than sacks. Do you get a couple of draft picks? And then you go to the raiders and say, we'll give you draft picks. We want Khalil Mack and then you've got an elite edge rusher and elite corner and elite safety. You have a defensive minded head coach. You keep Sam darnold in those games or the adjust grab all the picture. Can you go to your scouting department and say next two years? What are the offensive line look like in college football, you go to your NFL scouts and say, are they're going to be offensive lineman on the market? Because what you gotta do for the jets right now, you gotta get enough of line that thing's a mess. It's it's, it has moments when it can pass block a little. It does not run block. Well. Now the jets receivers are not great, but if Robbie Anderson can keep it buttoned up and curse there. Okay. It's not a disaster. They're receiving core depend. Terrell Pryor can Terrell Pryor, stay focused. Robbie Anderson, stay engaged. The got something, but they got no running backs up note, not good at tight end offensive line is really, really poor, but the jets are making a decision and they're making a decision that all of us have watched. Sam darnold is head and shoulders to me better than all these rookie
