Twenty ounce dr pepper today g. santi will in subic the podcast. Tuesday morning we have spent more time on this program talking about the los angeles chargers in the los angeles rams we spend more time on the program talking about the los angeles raiders. Turn oakland raiders. Turn las vegas raiders in the los angeles rams bell as we got to start talking about the los angeles rams. Whoa what a performance last night. It's keyshawn jay will and zubin presented by progressive insurance. All of our guest joins us on the shell. Pennzoil performance line key. Got to start with you. Here golf's numbers. Were quite something thirty. Nine for fifty one for three seventy six three touchdowns cooper kupp eleven catches robert woods ten catches they for two hundred seventy five yards receiving. And you want to say tom. Brady's the pass catching weapons. But when you look at it they just had enough in a game that you think they should have dominated. Well i thought they probably could've won this game by seventeen points When you look at it there's a misfield gold air. You take away you take away a couple of other opportunities that they had to score points on but you also look at how the how. The game was called a couple of questionable pass. Interference calls as far as i could. Tell them mike evans and jalen ramsey. It was just kind of one of those deals. Where i'm like. Okay ken they somehow slow this thing down. But when you when you go back and you look at. I've always felt like the rams are be pretty good football team in his own right. I mean they took care of business against seattle. And i had him actually winning the afc west. A lot of people like arizona because arizona started to play well or even seattle seattle's a playoff team. But i felt like the rams sneaky good they kinda low key good kind of know. What the do they been there before. They got a bunch of veteran players that was on that super bowl team and they got a young coach. Sean mcvay who knows how to coach. I think that is key. You put in a game plan to take advantage of the secondary of the tampa bay buccaneers. But you also put a game plan in defensively to go and get. Tom brady to make tom brady. Basically just quarterback in the national football league not to go and you saw that last night couple of interceptions by brady. I know one people questioned whether or not his arm got hit over the middle that he was trying to go to guy went on but that was clearly a throwing not someone hitting his arm or you talk about the late interception on a two minute drive to seal the game for the ram. Think key i will say this when when when i look at this like this is a team that could actually win a super bowl. I know you said that. The first opening a couple of weeks of our show. And i was always questioning the consistency of jared goff. Now he threw two picks last night. But still i agree with you. They should have dominated by game and look at the way. Things are going to play out this team. Their last remaining games are all on the west coast. Okay and it'd be talking about the way cooper kupp and the way woods play. I mean cooper covers one of the most underrated wide receivers. There is a national football league. Davante adams even said last night via twitter. Just look at the yards. He's able to gain after a catch. I mean he's number two in the league with yards after the catch so if they're able to play that way there deepens his formidable we talked about that and the way their games. I mean look at the rest of the schedule you talk about. They played a forty niners at cardinals. Patriots jets seahawks and then cardinals again. You see the same team twice in the cardinals but we don't know how column doing with that shoulder position in the nfc that is wide open. It just feels like absolutely wide open. It certainly is wide open jay. And i think when you look at it outside of the saints. The rams are right there into saints. Have any sorta hiccup the rams can slide themselves into that number one by spot. Something that you know i. I don't know if it's this year because of the way things have played out throughout the course of the year with everything and the pandemic that home field is really all that important because some stadium some cities. Some towns don't have fans in their stadium. So you get the benefit of the doubt by you know pretty much going to a stadium with home. Field advantage would allow loud noise and allow crowd. I will say this though the bucks for all that was made up about what happened. Bay his is just a a bunch of names. That's the way i look at it. The gronkowski's the browns evans's the brady's the four nets. The jones is the guy. Chris godwin the oj howard's when he was there is certainly hasn't turned out to be what we thought. It was based on what people expectations were at the beginning of the year. A couple of numbers for key to back that up. And you've been saying this for weeks. Let's talk about it just in bits and pieces bucks right now. Drop to seven and four. They're still in clear position to make the playoffs but it gets a little bit dicey if they were to lose sunday because they have patrick mahomes and the chiefs coming to town and after what we saw from the chiefs sunday night and what we saw from the bucks on monday night. I don't think it's unreasonable. To think the bucks would fall seven five then it starts to get a little bit murky but the one thing that you said key last night and you've been saying all season long as tom brady is just like anybody else. Despite how great he is. He's just like anybody else when he feels the pressure to for eight for seventeen yards last night when pressured there was a stat in the fourth quarter. When the game was hanging in the balance and stephen brian and lewer calling the game. It said brady pressured zero for six. He finished two for eight for seventeen yards under pressure. Something you've said despite how great he is when you get them up the middle. He reacts like every other quarterback. I think that's the key because he can't get out on the perimeter. So if you're pushing the pocket aaron donald those guys brockers is doing. His job on yen is like where do i go. I've got a stand hand. I gotta stay stalling. Stand tall in the pocket and try and deliver the football if you just look over the course of brady's wonderful hall of fame first ballot facts in fact it won't even be a first ballot. It'll be as soon as i retire. I'm in there the next day hall of fame You look at the teams that traditionally have lost to. What was it that they've had. They've had pass rush they whether it was the baltimore ravens whether it was the kansas city chiefs whether it was The new york jets those teams the giants that when they got they won those games. They got after him. Then and that's recipe is you've got to create havoc for him and make him uncomfortable in the pocket. He was getting the ball out so fast last night. I'm like tom. You gotta let the receive return his head so he knows that the ball is coming soon as like. Oh here you take it. I don't want it anymore. Because the pressure has started to to get to him and so he started thinking about that. And you could clearly tell if you were watching the game and jay. What do you make of brady's performance last night we've kind of talked about it having an uneven performance remember. They got embarrassed on a thursday night before down to buckle. They got embarrassed on a sunday night. You could argue. That was the worst loss of brady's career with the saints shellacked and swept the season series and he struggles on a monday night. He's used to being so great on the biggest stages. I mean zubin. This is supposed to be. Tom versus time and i feel like father. Time is definitely winning. I agree with key. Look when his office of can protect them. He has time in the pocket. He's able to hit targets. Like mike evans. But obviously when he targets antonio brown thirteen times those are quick passes He's trying to get the ball out and keo come back and ask you looking. He was one in nine last night and passes that were plus fifteen yards right. So is it safe to say like tom brady not that. He was ever a malleable in the pocket and can move but still with time and him being the ag is it just doesn't seem view play against a formidable defense if you can pressure him. They're off their game. They're not. They're not even close to a super bowl. Contender feels like well. Here's what i would say about. Tom is is if you give him time. He's gone completely shred you. And that's most great quarterbacks. That's what they're gonna do but the moment that there's a little bit of heat around him he's not comfortable. This is a totally new environment situation. Circumstances you could certainly tell one of the things that he's comfortable with trying to find gronkowski another thing. He's with trying to find antonio brown and so over time. I think he'll get better at it. I just don't think it'll be this year. I think if you if you look into the future toward next year. I think you'll see a much better. Tom brady a second time around in byron. Left which offense. There's no doubt about it so this morning. We're asking how the doctor dr pepper twitter feed. Who's the one team the saints don't want to face in the playoffs. Yesterday our question was who is the one team. The chiefs don't wanna play and it seemed like the overwhelming answer was the steelers but this morning we're asking you. Who do the saints want to avoid. We're asking you that because at this particular point the saints sit in the number one spot in the nfc. Oh by the way right behind them are the surging. Seven three rams. Maybe that's your answer. Maybe it's green bay maybe seattle. Maybe it's somebody else. Maybe it's still the bucks.

Twenty ounce dr pepper today business. I know regardless of record. We've been committed to winning this game and the steelers trip to jacksonville quite successful. They went at twenty seven to three. The steelers are ten and oh they have an opportunity on thanksgiving night to bury to rape because it thanks in the ravens to six and five they can wanted to arch-rivals. I guarantee you. Mike tomlin is going to be preaching though we might have a problem on the way to doing that. Perhaps just perhaps that was on one or two point five w. Dv the steelers. This point have had no problems. We're back on keyshawn. J. will zubin. It's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk. Wireless straight to. That stat was mentioning. Listen to this. Fella's pittsburgh is going to be the fourth team to an unbeaten record. Entering a game played on thanksgiving over the last eighty years. That's not easy to do. Obviously you're deep into your schedule on thanksgiving day will play the third of three games on thanksgiving day against a reeling. Ravens squad again. Fourth team. With an unbeaten record their ten ino- heading into their thanksgiving clash with their archrival. The baltimore ravens. The ravens have a little bit of covert issue. Keyshawn at the moment it looks like mark ingram and jk dobbins have tested positive. They won't be available on a short week when they take on. Pittsburgh gus edwards looks like he'll be in their starting defensive tackle brandon williams who missed the game sunday along with collapse campbell. It looks like williams is being placed on the team's reserve covid nineteen list. I'm gonna just give you a piece of the statement that the ravens released with regards to their latest corona virus break we started the process of contact tracing and during this time the under armour under armor performance center will be closed with all team activities conducted. Virtually we will continue to work closely with and follow guidance from the nfl team doctors and our medical trainers the game remains on for now. But it's a short week. It's a big spot. Your reeling your rivals undefeated. And now we've got to make this thing happen. Virtually before we physically see them on thursday. It's just twenty twenty again. No it is and it's gonna be tough going to be tough baltimore when you both your back main league guys or not there to help you try and tackle. A task is going to be tall on thursday night. It's going to be tough. And i think when you look at it was going to be off with those guys in the lineup. Because pittsburgh is a hell of a football team they know how to win. They know how to play. And mike tomlin knows how to coach being around his burger's been back in the saddle. This is the reason they are undefeated. They've discovered a young receiver. And chase. claypool you know. Juju smith is there. I mean there's just a lot that defense. I it's just a lot that they have to overcome in going up in into to make matters even worse. You're going into pittsburgh to one of your rivals when you're arch enemies. You just saw them a couple of weeks ago and you wind up losing football game so imagine what the pittsburgh steelers feel like. They don't want you to be the team that comes in to their house in derail their opportunity in their chances to have the number one overall seed in the afc. No question about a j. What do you think here because as you look at it at this particular point is crazy as it is to think about and this is something mike. Mike tannenbaum front office insider brought up on the program yesterday. And you still have to wrap your head around it right now. Even though we've got an extra spot available in the afc the top seven teams are going to make the playoffs playoff format his change for the first time in thirty years. Right now. j. Believe it or not at six and four lamar in the ravens are actually on the outside looking in right now. They occupy the eighth spot. They lose thursday. There'll be a six in five football team. What's on the line here for baltimore. They are going to lose when they play on thanksgiving day and look. This is an opportunity for lamar jackson to do what everybody's been asking him to do. Throughout from the beginning of the season key has to throw the ball. now you have to. There's no other choice. And i know there's something that you know. We've been digging into with him. Can he hit people outside. The numbers can make marginal players better. And i know get into the conversation about. Who's throwing the ball to. He has no targets to work with. Well there's no other choice. He has to be the guy. If we're talking about paying him one hundred plus million dollars. I know you won't key but the baltimore. Ravens probably will. This is the time to prove to the ravens and to himself that he could be the guy to keep this team in the hut of making the playoffs. I don't see it happening. Unfortunately and i think the narrative is going to change about the mark jackson after thursday. Night again always going out there without a full. Cast his weapons it. They're run first team. And when you don't have dobbins in you don't have ingram is going to. You know your your offense is gonna stall to a degree young man with a lot of pressure zubin on him now. I mean a huge amount of pressure to be able to try in Engineer a victory against pittsburgh trying to stay alive but not necessarily stay alive but try to hold onto the number one see with kansas city right behind him with one loss. Now you look at the situation with baltimore and you think to yourself. Look we're in a logjam. We're at six and four. We're not playing well. Were paying pittsburgh all of it just sort of comes to a head because from what you guys have both said you look at what could have been and we always talk about windows in sports. I understand lamar's a young guy bends near the end. Lamar still closer to ascending. But it wasn't that long ago that this team was fourteen two had won twelve in a row and was sailing and they have just not paid off any of that to this point when it matters. You guys have always said it's about what you do in the postseason when it matters to this point to your point lamar's very young hasn't won a playoff game. That doesn't bother. It's something that sort of bothers me a little bit. But they seem to have been in the league two and a half years man but he was the quarterback of a fourteen in to home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Only been the league two and a half years. Only i mean like winning. A play is we can go through a litany a long list. Add more than i feel like. I'm more the problem with him because it's all the excuses all the time. Well yeah maybe maybe excuses but zubin talking about the play offs in when you think about it. He's took over for joe flacco. He took over in the middle of the season. Let them to the playoffs. Last year was just crazy. It was ridiculous they go fourteen and to like you said in win twelve in a row they lose. That's the only two playoff appearances. But you make it sound as though he's been in the league nine years and he's lost nine consecutive playoff game. I'm nothing. He's andy dalton. Now i'm just saying that we're expecting so much out of two in herbert and burrow burrow. Who are coming up at the bottom of the hour. The bad news confirmed when we're putting all these guys key on such a quick trajectory for success. I just feel like if you've been in the league a couple of years we're going to say it's not reality. Those guys. I love you to death and i'll never let you cross that line like people on twitter. That's not reality. it's just not reality. It took peyton manning forever. In a day i could go on. The list of long list. Quarterback was one in fifteen list of them. But it's going to happen at some point because if it doesn't happen but we saw going to be the quarterback of the baltimore ravens jaded. Stay straight talk wireless. No contract no compromise all right on the way. We haven't had a large sample size from lamar jackson. We've had an even shorter samples though. Man i like you. Even more from joe burrow but key is already sold on borough despite yesterday's devastating injury news his rationale on the way. Where's your haircut gone. We know you don't get out as much you don't drive by irregular sportclips clips and pop in for that. Mvp haircut experience that he's so much more than a haircut but isn't it worth getting out for for that legendary hot steam towel for your face shampoo. That makes you melt into your seat. Oh man you remember that right. We found your erica. It's right where you left sport clips. It's good to be a guy. That is max kellerman yesterday on his radio. Show big big story. Keep in mind. Of course the bengals have won a playoff game in thirty years they finally found their guy their next carson palmer palmer joined us yesterday. He said the injury could be a blessing in disguise. They could get a higher draft pick and put more around joe burrow. We're gonna go to cincinnati in one minute but key. You said we were talking about in the previous segment sample size. You gotta wait on lemarbre already making proclamations onto a herbert and borough but you are ready to say ten games in. I have seen more than i need to see for joe burrow. He is legit. He is the man absolutely. It doesn't take you long to to see herbert's legit. He's gonna be okay. It doesn't take you long to be able to identify a guy as going to be a player This is certainly a setback for his career with an injury. You certainly wanna know how he's going to respond to the injury when he comes back. Acl mci and some other damages. Somewhere in there. I'm not a doctor. I haven't been inside his knee. So i i don't really know what the mri looks like. But clearly there's some damaged there but his performance this year long. Ten games has been superior for a rookie. I think when you when you look at it you have to say to yourself. He is headed in the right direction. And i know how can you tell well. Clearly he with tee higgins a young receiver that they drafted along with just in. I mean along with joe broader. Help his future. That is what you do a young quarterbacks joe mixing in the back feel when he's healthy to have a strong running game essay. Young football team headed in the right direction. And when you look at it you have to be able to say. This guy has what it takes. There's no doubt about it. let's head cincinnati mo egger. Espn fifteen thirty. Our great affiliate joins us via the shell. Pennzoil performance line brought to you by shelby. Power nitro plus premium gasoline. Mo- good morning simply put. What is the reaction here over. The last twenty four forty eight hours to the joe burrow injury fans are devastated. Fans are devastated. I don't think there's any other way to put it in. It's it's the injury in a vacuum. Look when when you're franchise player suffers an injury which puts his you know. Certainly his his short term future in doubt and obviously has long term as well That's always painful. But when you're cincinnati bengals fan and these things always seem to happen at exactly the worst time it it just it. It's just such a punch to the gut There's no reason to believe joe burrow is going to get back on the field i heard carson palmer with you guys yesterday carson palmer got back on the field. He was injured in january. He started week one and two thousand six. I think that's the timeline they're looking at here. But you have to guy number one overall not with the idea that he's merely going to be on the field but that he's gonna be special. And i think that's what bengals fans are having a hard time with right now or are we not gonna see the player. The joe burrow was trending towards being before sunday You know keyshawn was talking about it. The first half of the season he was fantastic for a guy who started week one as a rookie with no preseason obviously didn't translate into wins but men. You couldn't watch him and not be really excited about you. Know his future were. This team could go with him and now all of that is in doubt. I think tangles fans are having a really hard time with it. Who are the bingo fans pointing the fingers at left and right i i think i think what it is and i certainly understand this team. Is that a bad offensive line for five years And look something like what happened on sunday. You know this key schon. Something like what happened on sunday could happen to a quarterback playing behind the best offensive line in the nfl. Things happen in the sport. You know you brought up carson palmer. Two thousand five playoffs. He was injured behind a really good offensive line. But it has always felt like the bengals were playing with fire on the line going back. Two thousand sixteen certainly going back to the year after they let andrew whitworth getaway in two thousand seventeen and it hasn't been due to lack of effort Offensive linemen in the first round in two thousand fifteen two thousand eighteen two thousand nineteen. They've made trades. They tried some developmental guys and it just hasn't worked and so along with watching joe burrow. Play well it was hard to to not watch him in the first half of the season and not save yourself man. He's gonna get killed back there. They just haven't done a very good job of protecting him so it sounds lazy to say well. He's behind a bad offensive line. And that's why he got hurt but the longer you leave something just the the the the more likely that it's that it's at some point gonna come back and bite ya and i think that's where most bengals fans are. The inability to consistently protect their quarterbacks caught up to them in absolutely the worst way on sunday. Mo- you know and i know that. Cincinnati bengals organization. They like to stick long and harwood head coaches. But let's go back to. Last year was taylor. Let's fast forward to this year with zac taylor. How do we evaluate him. Now without joe burrow as a head coach. Well they're going to hand things over to ryan finley. That doesn't give this coaching staff. A pass because ryan finley played last year. He played three games They didn't go well he didn't play well that certainly doesn't preclude him from improving and play well playing well moving forward but to me you are. You're always held accountable for your choices. This organization and this coaching staff chose with a rookie quarterback to stay with a backup. Who was rookie last year. Who didn't have any success that tells me they think ryan finley can win football games and you know here in the second half of the season we were talking last week. About how now. You're finally start to evaluate this coaching staff. Because the schedule eases up a little bit right. They were playing three bad. And if teams the houston. Texans are on the schedule. That miami game is not easy but you know winnable I still think you hold this coaching staff to that. Because they chose. This organization chose to stick with ryan finley instead of going out and getting an established veteran to be a backup instead of going out and getting a ryan fitzpatrick type instead of going out and heck even keeping andy dalton around because he was under contract for one more year so What i think. Everybody certainly acknowledge is the. The battle is very told moving forward but you are record. This coaching staff is four. Twenty one in one since replacing marvin lewis. Zac taylor has no equity to cash. In on at some point you gotta start winning football games and i still think that statement holds true. Even without joe burrow while four twenty four and one zaka former college quarterback knows the quarterback position. He played in nebraska. Just with the facts. Here though. I didn't say anything. Good sean mcvay for those. That don't know taylor's on mcveigh's staff and there was that period of time where everybody believed that if sean mcvay put a little pixie dust on you that you were going to become the next sean mcvay. I saw the bengals on sunday. And i saw the rams on monday and the keys point. That did not happen. There was a little different last thing for you. Really appreciate you joining us for being joined by leg or one of our great hosts on espn fifteen thirty in cincinnati tonight at seven pm eastern time. We're going to get the first college. Football playoff rankings. And speaking of the number seven the bearcat sit there at number seven in the associated press poll. They have an eight and record. Luke vehicles done an unbelievable job. Some people are thinking. This'll be finally the year that a group of five team can break through to the playoffs since we're dealing with the season unlike any other. What's the expectation tonight in your mind. For where the bearcats should land in the initial rankings. I my guess is that tonight reflects ward seen from the major polls that they'll be seventh No obviously not going to be in the top. Four and i think there's reasons for skepticism that our group of five school is ever going to be allowed into the college football playoff You know people talk about. Ucf in two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen. it's not like those seasons. They were fifth on the outside looking. In right it's not like they were the last team they really didn't even come close to making the top four so i think because of that. There's always some sort of you know. Just get isn't that a group of five school is ever going to be allowed in. I think what's going to be interesting is to see what they do with. Byu byu is obviously had a remarkable season. There offensively unbelievable their schedules not very good and they have one common opponent with. Cincinnati was houston. Byu trailed the cougars late in the third quarter. Cincinnati blew them out at nippert stadium. So i would imagine. They're they're holding steady at seven i. It's going to be interesting to see you know. Frankly what this looks like if they do go undefeated They're gonna win. Handle the i think this weekend against temple. They have One more game after that against tulsa then obviously the american athletic conference championship game. There have been some rumblings about maybe adding another game to this schedule potentially playing. Byu what makes this season so interesting as you guys know is they could be at the end of this with an eleven record and not get in because a team with an eight nine record gutted. Or maybe even with the seven and a record got in based on cancellations. I think that would be a very tough pill for barakat fans to swallow but as of now my guess is there number seven. I think it's gonna be interesting to see what they do with. Byu and if the bear cats are trailing byu after tonight. I think some fans are going to be pretty upset about that. Totally understand that because byu sitting behind them at eighth and also in the top twenty coastal carolina and marshall out of the group of five year but nobody wants to see any of those small schools play. We think about a couple of years ago. Ucf was undefeated. They had to proclaim their own national championship. Because nobody you know was like nah. Yeah we'll wait to see what happens tonight. At seven eastern mole have a great program. This afternoon really appreciate it. Thank coastal carolina taken all the alabama crimson tide the national championship. How would they go. What do you think number on. That would be fifty for the first half keyshawn. Jay zubin presented by progressive insurance drivers. You save with progressive save over seven hundred fifty dollars on average call or click today. Find out if we could save you hundreds on your car insurance to give a shout. Out to grayson mccall the coastal carolina quarterback head. Coach jamie chadwell. They've done a great job but you understand where he's coming from where i've come in front but a great season they're eight no marshall seven in cincinnati's eight. No we'll find out where it all lands tonight. I mean think about the teams in the schools. That you just name and think the ones that are in front of him. Do you wanna see clemson. Play any of them notre dame. Play any of them. Not gonna toughness north carolina this weekend. So that'll be a doozy in itself. No question jail joins us here. In just a moment. Let's go from eighteen z and start with jase favorite sport. Of course the nba can't wait to get jays thoughts on this from is brought to you by red box. Red boxes new movies at the box and streaming on demand. Don't miss unhinged starring russell. Crowe is red box. Dot com for all the ways to watch. So obviously there's been a lot of fallout after clay thompsons latest injury. His fellow splash brothers. Steph curry making a splash. Wing with marc j spears of the undefeated talking about the latest ailment for clay a torn achilles. That's going to sideline him for this upcoming season. Which begins in less than one month. Here's steph with mark on when he found out to get. That cole was ago punch for sure a lot of tears. A lot of you don't really know what to say because a guy like the having to go through to pretty serious rehabs now but in today we had to have his back We hope that you know he's around and he's part of what we're gonna do this year through his rehab and staying connected with us because he can't come back he's that type of guy that loves the game so much that you know you're gonna do whatever it takes to get back out on the floor and be himself necessarily hope that confidence that we have to two and a half years of rehab is tough for anybody for the bus j. Your words on steps words. Let me give you some addition here. One plus one does not equal to kelly oubre day. Plus andrew wiggins does not equal klay thompson. We are talking about this team. This backward shooting back in the history of the game klay thompson you could put him on other teams best offensive player and then offensively you can expect him to drop thirty to forty in spurts. And he's a dead eye. Shooter allow steph to have room to operate. The game has lost one of the best. We've ever seen to do it. Hopefully he can come back and be stronger. But i think it's gonna be interesting to see if steph can carry this team along with kelly oubre and andrew wiggins and from the nba to the nfl sport of choice cam newton. Channeling bill belichick. When asked if he wants to be a patriot and twenty twenty one. We'll dig into this injustice. Second newton made his appearance. Weekly appearance on the greg hill. Show on our boston. Affiliate w. e. e. i and essentially was asked this. Listen to the question and the response you'll get our drift. Do you have interest in being a patriot in two thousand twenty one. But i have interested in winning the arizona cardinals game. How about that. I mean there's so many things that that i i don't wanna even harbored dwell even think update my my and the bible says my cup runneth over you know with just trying to focus on you know this the near future rather than the all right and before we get keys. Thoughts cam may not be mastering the game plan from bill belichick. But he's mastering bills work at the mike. Shirley remember this. How difficult is it to reality for monday. Get back on trucks. We'll put it. Because from a condition standpoint. The servants has had these issues in the us owner cincinnati. Tom com cincinnati thirty seven year on the cincinnati. It's not about the playoffs now. That about the future right. We're cincinnati talent. you have to. Here's good we're getting ready for cincinnati. I'm just ask you. We're getting ready for cincinnati. We're doing mind you. They went ahead and won the super bowl. It's still funny six years later. Yeah that was the end of the pats. I believe that night. It was a monday night. Game they got destroyed by the chiefs pre mahomes and we said that was the end of new england. They ended up winning the super bowl. It's still funny six years later. Still great no it is and you when you go to a place like new england or you go to places where coaches have been there for a long time you fall in line and you kind of take on their personnel. And and that's what cam is showing you like. I'm not even focused in on what's going to happen next september. I'm focused on. What's going to happen this sunday. In that's the arizona cardinals and j. I heard you clapping throughout that piece of audio. Did i catch that right now. You did just because. I remember that. And look i want to see cam succeed. I think both key. And i same car as it relates to that right. The question is though what the question is as they continue to move along. I don't think they're gonna make the playoffs. I unfortunately feel like this will be the last time we will see them as a starter. I think cam. I'm not sure it's gonna work out with the patriots long term. They're going to get through this season. I already look at this team as a team. That is trying to rebuild and bill has had to make moves. I think he'll be with the pro the franchise for time but i don't see cam having a long-term feature with the patriots being maybe a backup moving forward in his career or somebody. That's in the rotation here. You ready go to those links. I'm not yet. I think their playoff holzer over. But i i think they're going to evaluate him based on the rest of the season to decide on whether or not they bring him back or extended opportunity for him to come back whether he becomes starter or the draft guy. They find another veteran guy that they might want to bring in I don't think that they've soured on camp to the point where they wouldn't bring cam back. I think bill in the organization is smart enough to know that they don't have a whole lot of talent in a couple of key pieces on their defense has opted out. They get those guys back. I think they look at that. Oppose the okay. It's been a bad year he's good. Let's get rid of him. Let's go find another guy. They're smart enough to know what they have. They're sitting in the eleventh spot as you would you. Would you bring him back key. If your team granted you have a lot of pieces that were missing defensively. But seeing the way he's throwing the ball and understand the way bill. Bill check likes to run their offensive sets and mcdaniels company. Is he the quarterback. That's going to answer those questions for you. Am i going to get him the necessary help. Am i gonna help him. Am i going to get him some playmakers in free agency. Because i have some money to spend. I'm not gonna draft some quality guys. That could help our offense. I would have to look at that. I mean because is is he is very easy to say. Oh he's had a bad year. Get rid of him. He's had an up and down year. He's had an up and down year jay because he's been here the covert situation. He played well in a few games. He obviously missed some targets. But he's also hit some targets jakobi meyers jakobi. Meyers is really the only receiver has been consistent. the q. Hari guidi drafted a year. Go out at arizona state in the first round. No no i'm ready to give up on him you look at. Where's julian element. Julian edelman has been heard. He's been out of the lineup. So you start to kind of look at those things in you say to yourself. I took on this as a staff into an organization knowing that. This was not the same quarterback as tom brady. So our philosophy offensively was going to change. You're not gonna find somebody out there. That's going to duplicate. What tom brady did for twenty years. It's just it's impossible the fine. You're not gonna find anybody that's going to run your offense the way he did for twenty years. So you know you've got to evaluate cam in seeing what he's done for the first half of the season and what he's capable of doing the second half of the season into the all season. That's the way you evaluate. Because quarterbacks ain't just walking around. I mean think about it. They not just walking around. It's like seven footers basketball. Say if you seven feet tall you probably playing basketball somewhere making some money whether there's overseas or in the nba. They just walking around one thing. I would quit. No i i. I hear what you're saying. He makes sense. I hear what you're saying in the mid sense. I'm just saying we. We look at the numbers for guy that understand. That cam has been through. Kobe up and down year and it's a roller coaster. Ride it just. It just feels like the numbers. They're not good though. I mean it just fourteen. Td's in nine games seven interceptions. The completion rate is is one lowest. He's had in his career. Just it's tough man. It's a tough call. And i feel for him because it's been up and down. Feel how expectations are so high with the patriots organization. I just feel for cam overall. I feel form to if that's the case. Then they should if if they're not evaluating him to see if he's going to be back next year then go ahead and other do see what jared enemies see brian warriors. You see them every day in practice. Clearly they must be something that they don't like indie kishan. J. will zubin presented by progressive insurance right now. The pat sitting in the eleven spot. The bottom line is of course the panthers were never going to take him back. But there's a reason that thirty one other teams spent months waiting to decide what to do with cam snatched up of right away if you wanted to. And then there's that qb who was in new england. We'll talk about that. Thanks for listening to keyshawn. Jay williams zubin make sure to subscribe rate and review. You can hear the show live weekdays at six eastern on. Espn radio espn news.

How are you steve. excellent ross. Happy early thanksgiving likewise. Do you typically do better or worse thanksgiving week or on the thanksgiving day games. I have gotten crushed on thanksgiving along with many pros over the last ten years. Here's why only three games on the board. Typically steam rama on the favorites and the favorites have done very well on thanksgiving. So if you're just taking road numbers on the dogs you've got cream the last ten years. I wonder why that is. I don't know if it's just a small sample size or whether there's something about the bright lights. Primetime games that the favorites are motivated. Thanksgiving day. interesting okay well. Let's dive into what we did last week. And what a classic week in terms of allocation steve out of my six pets against the spread. I went three in three guess. What all three losses were two unit bets. All three wins were one unit bets. You gotta be kidding me steve. Brutal one sixty four chance at that was going to happen. She got expect that right man. Here's my question. You rarely make to unit bets. I mean i'm sorry. You rarely make one unit. Bet you're almost always two units. I have a lot more one. Unit beds in there. Is that a mistake by me. Why is that. Why are you so so usually two units not a mistake at all. I just i figure if. I don't have enough confidence in the play. Put two units on it. I probably shouldn't be putting anything on it and it just simplifies the record keeping a lot of times. Not you know. Have these small place that really in the in. The long run probably aren't going to amount to anything in terms of windsor losses. Interesting all right so last week cardinals game. I had the cardinals getting three and a half points. They lost twenty eight twenty. One that stunk. Neither one of us had anything in the browns. And eagles falcons saints. Units on the falcons soda used the. It was a best bet and last week. This time we thought james winston was going to be the quarterback lo and behold ends up being tased him say twin twenty four nine your thoughts on that game and taste them. Help could have been worse tasting. Hell hit a fifty five yard bomb that got called back for holding call. So that doesn't show up in the stats. Julio jones goes down for atlanta no offense with lions panthers. We passed patriots. Texans man this one surprise me. I was just wrong especially early. In the game. Damian harris have one of the easiest touchdown runs i've ever seen. I thought okay here. We go patriots gonna smash these guys in. The run game didn't happen. I mean wow very impressed by the texans and disappointing. The patriots lost two more units. There i thought the patriots to pick up where they left off against the ravens didn't happen watching look good. Didn't he. Throw a dart so a houston team that despite being out of it continues playing heart. You had them as one of your team teasers. You had teased the texans up to eight and a half and the chargers down to minus two and a half so that to unit two team teaser came through for you. Steve which is awesome. Next game was steelers. Jags steelers were laying nine and a half. I almost never do this. But i laid a unit on the steelers. They win twenty seven to three. You lean that way. Bengals washington bengals. Were getting one and a half. I had them with the packers on a two team teaser. It's them up to minus seven and a half or plus seven and a half. I should say bengals were plus one and a half and they cover that easily. Steve if if borough doesn't get hurt that stunk did stink. The bengals led the yardage like two fifty to one twenty five had about a two to one yardage edge the lead nine two seven the rest of the way after the hated ryan. Finley comes in seventeen yards for the bengals one ninety nine for washington. It totally changed the game. Wait a minute. They had seventeen yards the rest of the game. I know it didn't seem like that many to me but yes seventeen. That was actually one of my big takeaways. And i said this on the ross tucker podcast. Just how important backup. Quarterbacks are i mean you have a guy that gives you a chance to win the game where you don't. It's it's immense absolutely meant. So that lost my teaser. Because the packers came through for me. Easily so borough getting hurt caused me to unit. That's a four unit swing. Which stinks titans ravens. I had the titans getting six and a half points one unit. They win outright while in overtime Dolphins broncos you had two units on the broncos steve and two units on the under they both came through four units in one game. Take a bowel my friend yet. All those fluky touchdowns in his first three starts in. It didn't materialize this game and if you look at the last four games. Dolphins only getting four point three yards per play. Nfl average five point six so dolphins lots of scoring but very much below average offense with two jets chargers. I took the jets. Getting eight and a half. They lose thirty four twenty eight so the jets covered for me. Then we get to the rest of the game. Didn't have anything packers colts as part of my team. Teaser i take that back. You had the bengals. Packers as a teaser. As well steve. That was the best bet for us that lost so i guess we were over to on our best bets. Which really stinks again. all Joe burrow got her then. You get packers colts. You had the packers into teasers. Were both good. Unfortunately in the next game you had the vikings in a two team teaser. T's down to minus two against the cowboys and they lose outright thirty one. Twenty eight cowboys looked better. I'll give them credit. Andy dalton game a chance to win no doubt about it. Zeke actually played a good game. He has just been lacking in explosiveness. I still say whenever. I watch the cowboys. Pollard's the better running back. I mean he looks quicker and asleep looks like the better pass catcher and a testimony to why never give a big contract to a running back. Well it certainly seems like he's got little more juice that's for sure and it does make. It seem like they didn't need to spend that much. Money on. Zeke chiefs raiders Nine one of the head anything there. We both lean to the chiefs. They didn't cover. And then rams bucks again. Nothing there so for the week steve. You were up one unit. I was down five units. That stinks for best bets. we were. Oh for to the falcons and that two team teaser with the bengals. Unfortunately for the year. I am only up ten units now europe three units. At least we're still both in the black and our strike. Great on our best bet is down. Fifty two percent sixteen wins fifteen losses. We need a big thanksgiving day week. Brian well happy thanksgiving to you guys. Ross let's start off with the first game on thursday. The houston texans. They are three point favorites at the detroit. Lions or the detroit lions fifty. One is our total. You know it is interesting. It feels like historically the lions play their best football on thanksgiving and by the way all of these lines as always presented by draftkings. This much steve. I was on a different show. And they're asking me something else and other places. The texans are are lay in two and a half. That's a big ever seen two and a half and three. It's three on draftkings. Which is the sports book of record for the show and this segment the one we use. I'm gonna lay it. I'm gonna lay to unit. I think to show them watson's playing awesome. I think the lions are kind of a disaster. They've lost three out of the last four games by fourteen points or more. I know they played better on thanksgiving. I don't care. I am taking the texans laying the three points to units yarmuth so sure that they play better on thanksgiving. I'll do a little research on that going back the last ten twenty years. Because i know they've had plenty of stinkers along the way as well. we did. A little research pregame.com. We got a guy from yell so he must be good. Mackenzie rivers does this for us. And he research thursday games and he found two key tramps. One is when a team has to travel on the road. More than eight hundred fifty miles. That's the case here. They do lousy the road team like thirty nine percent against the spread. The second key trend is if you look at thursday games senior quarterbacks cover more than sixty percent of the time versus junior quarterbacks. If there's a five year difference in age you wanna bet on the old guy. The young this makes sense to me. Because the savvy veteran is more able to handle this short week in the nuances of that so that on matthew stafford in the detroit. Lions both of those trends. I can't do it though. Now after what. I saw against carolina without gala day without swift running. Back this detroit team. And i don't know about stafford's thumb being one hundred percents. I want no part of detroit. Because of that i passed the game steve second game. The second of three games would be the washington football team and they are getting three points at the dallas cowboys with a total of forty six. All right my gut says this is going to be a close to the vest. Close game all of a sudden. Both these teams are in contention. And i think they both know it. That both could make the class. I think they're both energize. And given that i think they're gonna play this one a little bit like a playoff game and possibly both teams get a little conservative. Gonna go under the forty six units. Interesting steve i hadn't thought of it that way Yet i was kind of impressed with how dallas play the other day. However i don't think washington deserve to win the game. I think they were lucky. That borough got hurt. I don't wanna lay three. And a half though. Because i do think. This is a lower scoring. You know. Twenty to seventeen twenty three twenty something like that sorta game and they both did have defense's played better. You know what. Steve i'm with you. I'm gonna go to units on the under forty six as well. I think that's a good call by. I don't think these offense are going to have big games as best bet under forty six. I think it's a low scoring game bed thursday night game the baltimore ravens at the pittsburgh steelers steelers survey and four points with a total of forty five yet. And i'm gonna be there Ruined looking forward to get a chance to just drive the pittsburgh on thanksgiving after some family time which is terrific for those of you. Listening to other shows might schedule change during the day today. You know the the ravens covid stuff is interesting. There's some uncertainty as to you know who's gonna be available we know that. Jk dobbins and mark ingram were placed on the covert list. It will not be available. I still call it a hunch. Steve i think baltimore is desperate i think not having dobbins and ingram will change the offense a little bit for pittsburgh in terms of what baltimore will do. Pittsburgh's been great. I they're going undefeated. I think baltimore's desperate. I'll put two units on the ravens getting the four and a half points. I'm gonna lean pittsburgh here. I think there's stimulant disruptions for baltimore offensively so if you go back to last year janda. One of the lineman retires and this year stanley their best lineman gets injured nother. Linemen gets injured as well. Their best blocking tight end boil gets injured. And now who the three running backs aren't gonna play and this is a team that relies so much you know on pounding the rock and now the only gus edwards ross. I just think it's too much in terms of the continuity of the offense with all those guys out. I'll we pittsburgh steve. This sunday we go. Start with the. Las vegas raiders. At the atlanta falcons and the raiders three point favorites in this one total fifty five and a half very interesting so the atlanta had a stinker last week. Who will jones got hurt. I don't know if he's gonna play with a hamstring. i'm still going to lean to atlanta. And it's all about lying value. The look at line in this game was pick him. Lastly raiders play very well i upgraded them. Atlanta played poorly downgraded them. But i still think it's a good spot for atlanta and certainly last week's efforts have been reflected in this line without comes catching three points. That was an all in game for. And i got a question. Their energy level traveling across the country get on atlanta. Plus three wow. That's interesting steve. I can't do that. I think this line is about right. I think the raiders. The better team was not impressed. At all. by the falcons in fact very disappointed by them in new orleans thought they'd played better off a bye but they had some momentum going with he morris. I would lean to the raiders laying the three points. And this one. I want actually do it. But i would lean that way i also would lean towards telling all of you that fanatics is the official shop for national lacrosse league fan gear. Whoever you root for wherever you live. Here's the okay whether you love lacrosse like my nephew. And nieces do. And they're so international across league or you just love cool gear either way you gotta check out the nfl merck. So i am philadelphia wings guy. That's my squad right. I'm from philadelphia. I liked the philadelphia wings. But the calgary roughnecks their logo. That guy is so.

Even money promo code. Even i next game ross. Zona cardinals are favored by two and a half points at the new england patriots. Forty nine and a half is our total. Yeah and this is a. This is one of the teaser. Legs that i like for this week. I'm gonna tease the patriots. Up to eight and a half. I don't know the dole win the game. I don't think they're gonna lose by more than one scored the arizona cardinals. I think new england will be very competitive in this game bought about just taking new england and appointed. I'm so disgusted by their performance against the texans. I'll just cheese. New england up to plus eight and a half and i am going to pair that with the green bay packers. Green bay packers are favored by eight and a half against the chicago bears. I'll tease them. Down to minus two and a half they might not cover eight and a half. But they're not losing to the bears down to minus two and a half so patriots up to eight and a half packers down to minus two and a half as my one two unit ts. I'm gonna take the toll this gaming going to go over the forty nine and a half or two units. You know as much new england used in and i was like. Why didn't they win. That game over new england's had these bad weather games most recently against baltimore and in good weather the game should be higher scoring now. Somehow new england houston game state under. I still don't know how. And i think that's giving us a value on this total i know arizona is a dead not over team. That plays fast when you go over. Forty nine and a half. Two years steve the giants and the bengals giants fan by five and a half forty two and a half. The total holy line moves so the giants were catching two and a half nine days ago on the headline now the giants are laying five and a half so eight point. Adjustment just for quarterback alone ryan finley. I have is a five and a half point adjustment so not eight however i can see it here. Talk about a dream. Crusher even a franchise crusher. The word is the bengals. Camp protect their franchise player. It's a disaster. Zac taylor being called out for too many passes and so because of that normally when you have the the big star team going down at team oftentimes rallies. I'm not sure that happens. In this case with the bengals ryan philly was a disaster last year. When andy dalton sat down i tasked. Yeah you know. I am I'm torn on this one. I think ryan fin these really bad. But i also worry a little bit like a down by the giants coming off a bye they favour. They fire the offensive line coach. Now they're playing the bengals without joe burrow i'll just put one unit on the giants laying the five and a half because i think that they're a much better team at this point but i'm a little bit nervous like i said about some of those factors so warn unit the giants laying five and a half points against the bengals next game. It's the cleveland browns and the jacksonville. Jaguars cleveland six point. Six and a half point. Favorites and forty nine is the total ross. Right so this is the game. I'm going to stay away from it. Draftkings because i don't like the uncertainty with the jags quarterback position. I it sounds like it might be minhsiu. I don't know stephen insight there. But i'm a little bit nervous about the minhsiu sort of giving them a boost actor after luton was so bad last week that i'm just going to stay away from this. I would lay the point with cleveland. That would be my lean. But i feel like mint you might have a backdoor covering a myles garrett out again you nailed it if luton went again absolutely. Cleveland is the play Mencia is questionable to see as the week develops i. Would i would bet. Cleveland my seven or less. If mitsu can't go all right steve. The minnesota vikings they are at home. They are favored by four against carolina panthers with a total of forty eight and a half performance by carolina last week. Shutting out detroit. But i think more that was about the lions offense than the carolina defense minnesota disappointing loss which probably puts out of the playoffs last week against dallas. My power ratings. Only make it three. But i'm not betting carolina. There's only two teams in the nfl that have not had a bye carolina in tampa bay and with it being thanksgiving. That's really tough to go. That long in the season without a by rossio wherever season saw passing this game ever season where he had like the latest by. And do you remember at all having implications. I don't remember. I don't remember. I remember one year having the earliest by you could possibly have. I don't remember having one where it was the latest. So i i love to give some insight there. But i don't i don't remember that So unfortunately i can't chime in there. I'm gonna. I'm gonna pass the game. I would lean carolina. The no matter who the quarterback is i would lean carolina. And the point you get the points. And you've got adam feeling on the kobe list. I would lean carolina in that one next game tennessee. Titans and indianapolis colts titans are getting for from the colts with a total of fifty and a half. So here's the deal. i. I like the titans pretty much. My same logic is last week. I think it's a toss up game. I think this game could go either way. You're gonna give me four points. I'll take him. It's really that simple to units titans. That was impressive against baltimore. They know what they need to do against indianapolis i think indianapolis really was that great against green bay two units tennessee. Titans catching the four. And i agree to units tennessee. Titans that's best bet. Brian boom but one thing. I really like about raval. When i'm watching the game so often i'm like. Oh these coaches no idea what they're doing and i watch like everything he does. I agree with typically and look last week against baltimore. Four mets left in the second corps midfield. Its fourth and seven. It's going to be the last possession if they punt and baltimore's probably gonna drive down and get points. Maybe a field goal. Maybe maybe not but The bottom line is the tennessee. Titans stake upon and they get i down. They ended up getting the last score of the first half at such an obvious. Great spot in the reason being is with four minutes left. That's going to be the last possession so it was the perfect spot to call a fake punt and so many of these coaches are unaware stuff like that able always seems to be aware. And i don't know if it's in the spread now i get it any just rolled these guys two weeks ago. But part of that was the idiot. Punter gifting them fourteen points. So misleading final on thursday somewhat because a special teams on the dog year plus the four times. Get revenge. The los angeles chargers steve at the buffalo bills bills five and a half point favorites fifty three and a half as the total i. It's a high total. But i think it's going to be a shootout. The let's face it when the jets can score against you anyone can score against you and the chargers. Can you know. put up points. The bills defense very much. A disappointment bills offense is fine. I'm going to go over. Fifty three and a half two units interesting. Yeah this game a pass for me i. I would lean towards laying the points with the bills. The chargers i it's unbelievable herbert's awesome players and they barely beat the jets like they could have lost to the jets. It's absolutely crazy. I'll just lean buffalo here with the five and a half points. Bread laying it at draftkings. Ross the next game. It's the miami dolphins in the new york jets. The dolphins favored by six and a half in new york in new jersey. Forty four and a half total. I actually think the dolphins are a pretty good Teaser leg here teasing him. Down just laying half a point if you wanna consider that. Then they're going to win the game. I don't have faith that they're going to cover the spread. Starting to again. He did not look. Good against the broncos so i would lean towards laying the points the dolphins but it's just a lean. Y'all gonna pass this game to maybe not one hundred percent and he's going to play and and he's gonna play is. I don't think. The dolphins brass unlock fits magic. Be able to deceased off of that jets defense and now. You've got a quarterback controversy. So i'm gonna go ahead and pass the game with a sturdy steeds. New orleans saints are laying five and a half points at the denver broncos with a total of forty three and a half so passive. One denver looked very impressive last week. A case of hilton not. Look good in the stats. But like i said when. I was watching the game. He did a lot of things i really did like and specifically in one bomb that he threw perfectly fifty the five sixty are touchdown and a call back and so there sixty yards go off of his passing. Stats that Really should be there because penalty had nothing to do with the play. Whenever i'm watching a game like an nfl rewind. Live trying to make notations of one place. James the story of players bottom line. I'll go ahead lean just a little bit to new orleans. Yeah i think. I would lean new orleans as well but now that there's a whole game of tastes him hill. I vic fangio corner man vic fangio comes up with some pretty good plans edge. Just a lean for me. We're new orleans. Land the five and a half next game. Rosty san francisco forty niners the los angeles rams where the niners are getting seven in this one. And the totals forty five. Yeah that line seems about right to me. That's probably just about where i would habits. So i don't have an edge there either way i guess i would. I would lay it with the rams. Just i like sean mcvay. He is so good. Plus you've got a situation. Where the niners now. Trent williams tests positive for kobe. So he's out there backup left. Tackle has been a disaster so it will just be a lean for me with the rams lay in the seven. I'm going to pass the game. The power ratings. Make rams eight and a half in my number. But i don't want any part of the spot. specifically the rams get the homerun. Victory upset victory now short week against the team off of a by. So that certainly favors. Niners a pass steve the kansas city chiefs the tampa bay buccaneers kansas city favored by three and a half total fifty. Five and a half. Yeah what a disappointment by tampa bay last night and brady. I know that that was a very close game. But i didn't feel like i felt like the rams were the better team the entire way. Normally i would look to fade. Kansas city wrapped up the division with the big win against the raiders. But can't say still gain beyond pittsburgh for the number one seed and that by the afc. And because of that. I'm gonna go ahead pass. Yeah i'm with you I'm gonna pass this one as well. I don't even have really a strong lean one way or the other this is about. I mean if anything. I guess i kind of feel like kansas should be laying more points than this I i would lean with the. I would lean kansas city laying the points sunday night football. Ross chicago bears the green bay packers where the packers are late and a half with a total of forty five. So i've got the. I've got the packers down. T's down to minus two and a half in the two team teaser. With doing a pagers. I talked about earlier. I would be very surprised at the packers lost that game. I think it's a close competitive. I mean i think the packers win the game. Maybe the bears are able to go ahead and and cover the number but not of tease it. Down to minus two and a half you know. I think it's such a good teaser. To play the packers. I gotta tease green bay. I really struggled to find another game. I liked to tease. So let me take two units green bay and the teaser and i'll back the board l. Take the money despise cleveland. Browns beat jacksonville for my second leg to team teaser. Two units file game. Monday night football. It's the seattle seahawks philadelphia eagles and the seahawks five and a half point favorites on the road with a total of fifty one. Interesting seattle's had ten days to prepare and that would be nice. Advantage to seattle. Money keeps coming on philly each and every week. They don't perform on the field. However wentz just absolutely atrocious too for ten on third down conversions. Week before over nine horrible. Pick six in the wind a rather in the rain against cleveland. it is seattle's third long road trip. Last four games had to go to buffalo and they had to go the rams so that's a negative but i think the extra time since it got the play thursday now monday probably mitigates all that all have a small lean seattle. Monday night football. Yeah i think that's the direction i would go. Eagles are a bad way right now. Man i mean. I'm not going to bed it but my lean would be seattle minus the five carson. Wentz just does not look comfortable at all. And i don't have a lot of faith that the eagles are gonna come through on monday night although they won their primetime games this year for whatever.

The Chris and Joe Show: Breaking down a big loss to the Vikings
"I want to know more about what your favorite Ninjas have on their minds check out the American Ninja Warrior podcasts. It's available wherever you get your podcast and it's a great listen for any Ninja Warrior Fan when you Kinda warned about our preview show that this is just a really good secondary the giants were going against the didn't have any week this defense was because they completely limited his ability to extend place when you've got linebackers like Kendricks and getting about him because those guys are not like what Washington puts on the field their top to your players they've got the athletic where Jones was just off target he was either being rushed hurried by the defense or put in an uncomfortable position and debare Dale Jones isn't going to be able to get away with scrambling making guys miss extending plays or making the defense pay for Jones didn't really get away with his typical plays and the ways that he was able to be athletic and move because of how athletic and explosive making really any play an any incomplete passes a lot of passes were broken up a lot of passes were knocked down and that resulted in a pretty we they're about to cut open and they were about to be open but because of how fast and quick those corners Warren how good that defense was they were able to close down and prevent him from news that the giants were having so you can have a better understanding of what happened so first things first first negative that we were able to notice here was the date points and that was something we saw even even Donald Martinez second-year player came up huge in this game and giving up anything get the ball to so some of those plays resulted in sacks some of those plays resulted in no gains with a ball being thrown away there were also times where we saw that receivers look like they were open in previous games where he would escape the pocket you try to move and try and catch somebody at the end of their route and it looked like they were trying to cut of the giants loss to the Minnesota Vikings by a score of twenty eight to ten now we're going to preface this by saying there are not a lot of positives we're not GonNa really like Jones could do some of the other things that you really notice was that Daniel Jones was escaping the pocket and then rolling out and then there really wasn't anyone eh especially deep one of the other negatives we acknowledge from this game was one from Golden Tate who was coming back from a suspension and was expected to nick completion percentage on the day from him yeah it did completed about fifty five percent of his passes what there were some where the past be a splash splash player somebody that was going to come in and be explosive and help out Daniel Jones and adds his arsenal and he was pretty much nonexistent yesterday the ball sailed on him a little bit worn over throat Sterling Shepard in the end zone which I think is kind of Kinda stuck in everybody's mind but that's also something ability to kind of keep up with him in space and not let him break their angles and they're good enough to wrap up when they get a hit on him and that removed air and like you said the Minnesota corners just made the play they got great position they got their hands up to knock the pass away at the last second there were a couple three catches for for for thirteen yards not really up to the expectations a lot of people expected from him just overall not a a stellar performance golden which doesn't make his complaints in locker room about his role sound all that great after the game it's not a great thing when your biggest contribution aid now I did he even play I know he played about two thirds of the giants snaps but at least on offense he was pretty much a ghost as a starting player is one punt return in which he picked up seventeen yards that's not great for a wide receiver especially in his first Game Joseph is one of the top three defensive tackles nose tackles in the NFL and you had the giants interior back giving a big free agent contract he needs making in the top twenty of all receivers in guaranteed money you got to expect more from him especially down on the things that we pointed out in the quick take show but like I said not a lot of positives from so we're GonNa try to analyze the things that were not working and some of the issue Bob everybody knew that was coming at least everyone who knew what to look for new that was coming and the giants never adjusted their protection they never adjusted their blocking scheme pick-up anything that's a little bit too complicated than a normal base front and things like that need to be coached better they need to be improved offensive line just getting shoved out of the way at times there were just overmatched although I think the one play that really stood out to me was that perfectly for disrupting the giants offensive line in that resulted in a couple of the SAX in this game just overall lack of ability to on was just overmatched it didn't you'll hunter is a beast we knew that Everson Griffen is a good solid defensive end who can win with power gould with stunts twists domes along the defensive front end anything other than a straight up rush does seem to create coming off of his suspension like that considering his circumstance and like you said the suspension now his salary how much he's making you would hope that he'd be able to have more than three catches they struggle against anything better than than an average defensive front office of line play continues to be a huge question for thirteen yards it just seemed like he was a bit outmatched in outplayed to buy a more talented secondary and they were they were pretty much on him steps proven wrong by watching the tape there were instances where guys were shifting from gap the gap in trying to create some confusion at work talked about this a little bit in the quick take show but he was sacked four times and also hit another eight times. What do you think was the cause of that Chris in the giants offers I was able to actually notice that they were struggling significantly to pick up stunts in those situations I said that there weren't really a ton in the quick take show but I was your lineup no fake debates no politics just sports for real sports fans the best news of all it's free I don't mean free for a week he can also win with finesse maybe not outright athleticism he does have that savviness to his game where he can set offensive tackles up and then later in the game the needs to be better communication overall if they want to get better in those situations that is a problem that goes back even a couple of years the giants have really this episode is brought to you by CBS sports HQ so much of Sports TV nowadays is full of made up trauma it's a bunch of hot takes from people who don't even it was that first down from the two yard line that led to the safety everybody knew the list was coming at some point and then taken subscribe for free on Apple Podcasts or in your favorite podcast app all right so now just open the CBS sports APP and watch anytime from anywhere on your phone or at home on your apple TV Roku or fire TV it couldn't be easier a lot of confusion and they don't really seem to be able to deal with it consistently and it is a problem that as much as the giants have invested in this offensive line step in most situations which is why he was struggling to get open the final negative on the offensive side of the ball was that Danial Jones got hit way to me going back into Michigan so it's nice to see him kind of finding his role as a pseudo linebacker in James Bekker's defense really what he was used as was an extra linebacker in that was how he was able to make as many plays as he did when he was a member of the Michigan wolverines the CBS sports APP and watch CBS SPORTS HQ Today Hey Spencer Hall I'm Holly Anderson I'm Ryan Nanny focused on the game they bring you the latest news highlights previews and reactions to all the on field action fantasy sports experts will give you the info you need to make the right calls for I'm Jason Kirk and we're the host of the shutdown full cast your avengers of college football podcast it says here in the script to riff on what that means and basically what I mean is it considering their lack of consistency throughout the first three weeks now we're going to take a look at the defensive side of the ball before we do that we're gonNA take a short commercial break they just let him come through that really stood out and that's something even more than on the offensive lineman that's something that's on the coaching staff that they need to adjust they need to take it the vikings pretty much announced their intention to the entire stadium with how they lined their defense up covered up the garden center walked linebacker up right into that again kind of just all up to this interim buffet doesn't have huge range anymore a safety he was no longer the guy who ran a fourfold are just depleted at linebacker they are playing with practice squad guys end all the field being absolutely wide open leading to a lot of yards after catch yeah and there are I think a few problems that is really better is that pseudo linebacker than as a safety who can really cover huge ranges of turf but then also the giants a playmaker even going back to Michigan the interception last week was only the fourth of his career and then like mascot fights announcers fleeing the booth early and unfashionable pants that coaches wear now if you want to take college football exactly as seriously as it should more athletic than bar is yet he is a freak athlete and would be an elite athlete for you're at the combine he is just old not worries about it again we've got Djibril peppers who month or if you have some special cable package it's totally completely free for everybody you don't even need a log just sports for real sports fans pensively we do have one positive before we take our couple negatives that we're going to be breaking down here in the first one was that noticeable hustle play by pepper orange spoiled every Tuesday we talk about everything from cooking disasters to pro wrestling unfashionable pants worn middle school we also do talk about college football every on those crossing around being able to make those plays and come up field something needs to be done something needs to be adjusted because right now with these extreme it definitely seems to that definitely seems to suit him more than a more traditional safety role does yeah when he was at Michigan that was look at and really taken into consideration going forward it was apparent that some adjustments need to be made and when I looked in watched the film and I got the second chance to look at this what's ability of your inside linebackers and your linebackers in general if they're in coverage they need to be bumping is off their routes they can't have a free easy release an off ball linebacker and especially for his size one of the most athletic off ball linebackers in the NFL with that ability to move in space and his what they're saying just beating the same topics into the ground but CBS sports H. Q. is here to change all that it's a network that streams live twenty four seven in their coverage is just there's the recently acquired safety from the Cleveland Browns who had a like I said a forced fumble on Dalvin Cook ran him down punch the ball out on a play that potentially and smart offensive coordinators or quick to scheme and throw a lot of their routes toward that direction yeah and and now maybe we're going to start to see more and more of that albeit he was able to make a play on a a busted run that was leading towards the touchdown but seeing that level likes mainly using him there could help kind of forum up the middle of the giants defense now that doesn't mean not use him as a pass rusher backers they furnished picked up off the couch so all that means the middle of their defense is going to be vulnerable at least until they can get out the again and maybe the can that was actually I believe that was the first fumble of Djibril peppers? NFL career yeah he has actually never been much of that we need to hit and the first one seems to be a continually reoccurring one in losses and that is crossing routes across the middle but that's not awesome one pretty much everybody else is having their way and it wasn't just busted it didn't feast was Kyle Rudolph who only had four yards so at least there's that they didn't get destroyed by a tight end this time the playoffs and beat them and then you've got that interior offense of line or Interior inference of line that is just good used Anthony Barr because the two of them are pretty similar at least athletically they're about this abuse is about six five to fifty Carter is actually much hustle seeing a guy that sees the opportunity to knock the ball out it's just good awareness it's good decision making and it's good play by Bro Peppers now we have a couple of negatives there are obviously a lot of young and explosive players but those positions that continue to be liabilities obviously there's no clear solution right now but those in bringing in a top tier free agent because a lack of athletic ability is essentially what will lead to athletic players getting the game reserve I can't even say regular reserve linebackers extreme reserve linebackers to the point that they're picking is up off the street to come out and play those guys are not getting the job done someone needs to be signed something needs to be just somebody that needs to be moved because right now it's just not working on the middle of the field continues to be the largest vulnerability right now the main cause from this might have just been the disparity in talent level between the defense and the opposing offense that they were facing in the preview show and in discussing what needed to be done to win and we said that no splash plays for Delvin cook and it just so happens they gave up splash plays to pretty much every these big splash plays because you can't track them down and you can't tackle them and you can't prevent them from getting those extra yards yeah football I can can only do so much the to figure some things out in our critics suggested may be taking a look at using Lorenzo Carter when he gets healthy again kind of in a similar way to how the Vikings and not be

every week to be the best is back on the field and what were you able to do this week that you put it all together Thurs who have won three games in a row with Kyle is their backup quarterback now they're starting quarterback taking on a bucks team that Tried to follow up a win here in Los Angeles do you think you can go yard for yard with this guy as a competitive athlete I am I'm not gonNA say no I believe in myself and I believe abilities and it's not just this week asked in a way that we had yet to see over the first month of the season I'll tell you what the blocking unit the Gaza for they did the job they made it easy for me to just zone does that what causes you to wave goodbye to a defender that's trying to chase you down in the end zone Alan Oh yes definitely I mean you know when you're out there I mean I'd I'd take Aaron Jones here on the rich Eisen show and again you played your college ball at you tap that's that's why this was a home game for you terms of fun walk me through the day Oh man it was it was amazing I have my family their coal to thirty people back home and how does that feel different from other Games it just when you get the ball your hand you're just you're making plays I mean you're making people around and find lanes and go on touch sometimes and when you can do that it's going to be a good day there's GonNa be a lot of fun out there and what was it like for you for the game but it was no disrespect to Byron Zone he's a great player just having a little fun in the heat of the moment so are you saying there was a lot of Jones on Jones chatter through exists and has been surrounded by cowboys fans his whole life what would that seventh-grader have thought if somebody walked up to you and said hey one day four touchdown it definitely gets chippy I mean your competitors you WanNa win you're out there it's almost like a fistfight you're out there blocking each other the day so no no not not not Jones but I just game in general everybody who who could I mean all right the packers this year in the offense and Matlock Fluor Being brought in after what we saw with Mike McCarthy for a dozen years you are not put me down on the field here Erin what were they saying they were a little bit of everything so stuff you can't say on Air Okay therefore those does full for all the dozen years but so much has talked about change of culture has there been a culture change in that locker room you could be it definitely tell the difference in the locker room is is more energy around here is more of a family vied guy guys hanging out way assist so that's the closest they'll get to see me play and just just knew it was gonna be a good day from from the moment I woke up and then game gets kicked off and continued to just dominate the game Erin I don't know but it it it feels it feels me it keeps it keeps me going just like it's like adding fuel to the fire stuff Ashley right or I know you were born in Savannah I don't know what your Texas history is other than that you went to school there I moved here in seventh grade went to middle school high school and love and respect and support a lot of Catholic fans there but here in Jones Fan says well I said you shut a lot of people up do you think Oram just it's just a whole different energy and I think it starts with coach he came in and just commanded the room and we all bought in and Aaron Rodgers and matlock floor can you tell me what if I was a flying that wall what it would sound like Aaron get off blogs so chipper GonNa get physical in support of the game now I understand that but I mean how how can anybody start barking at you the way that you got off and there's some for the cowboys I I love it I'll I'm honored and blessed to be attacker I wouldn't wanna be anywhere else and so just the Them to get the best that they can do we wanNA score every every chance when you have a great quarterback like we have the ability to score every place so it was just them we get going I get a couple of times early in a GIG on I'm starting to make people miss and I just knew I was in his Donald as about to ask you about being in the zone the other Aaron Aaron Jones but on occasion we do see as a family conversation might be it could be called between the game last week in Toronto Mollison was just staring straight ahead like he wasn't he didn't want to seem to be wanting any part of that conversation you know but I think I did Told my dad I got a little bigger actually go back home now style that's great what would that seventh grader who moved to now that's all of your kid is definitely journal about scoring four touchdowns against his favorite team growing up so so much has been mentioned Aaron Jones about we know we have aided heated conversations here every now and then but then we've just because we just WanNa put the best the best show together you know Oh yes sir it's all about being the best and that wasn't really the case all the time in previous couple years not that it wasn't it just wasn't stressed as much they call you you're an issue number okay lock you go to work beat a playmaker when it all comes down to it Aaron Jones you had a huge game man and on for the packers in the home of the Dallas Cowboys Aaron Jones probably would have said at the time when I was twelve years probably have said now probably score and how are you feeling that there's more plays being called for you now in that regard last week communicate and trying to get to the right call what they've seen on that play so that's what that's what I'm hearing okay yeah because I saw there was one towards the middle the gang gets chippy. You guys get to talk and usually I'm not a guy who talks trash unless you talk trash to me first so then I don't stop talking after that you're GonNa hear me for the Patten hung out with last year and when you get that it's like you're playing with fifty three fifty two other brothers next to you you'd do anything for and again I know I might need to take it up with by the way I am definitely cool with fog I do have to have full disclosure here or caring now third disclosure here's full disclosure and you can just tell that this year's just brought the different valid I as one big family I mean I've hung out with so many guys on the team this year that I no Davante Adams no property thought there'd be a big problem and what does he do becomes the third player in the soup act showtime underscore thirty three but the on showtime is with a y He's difference maker man so I have to fully disclose here that did not keep me from one you on this show well I appreciate that game but when it all comes down to I know you have to speak it into existence you have to believe it and there's so many you know this is a key you know so okay so now it comes down to it can you go yard for yard with Kerryon Johnson Eric I'm not just carry on but team and then obviously this past week for you so definitely I would love to come back on hopefully it's after another four touchdown game well I mean how about a five one I mean okay well look man keep doing your thing keep doing your thing okay yes all right thank you for having me a good to talk to you again right back at Ya that's Aaron Jones all is New England at the jets a week eight Monday night football is Miami at Pittsburgh Soak it in huge Monday night football game a huge Monday night football game and soak it in my friends and colleagues at ESPN because week seven Monday night football stayed there for college in my family still lives there so because I'm not saying I'm from El Paso those were home is for me from hearted and the people there show me nothing but love can come out of the backfield and Rogers doesn't have to win around forty five times what we haven't seen is the struggles on offense like okay he's GonNa run around forever and try and back shows up this week that we have not seen in let me do the math here quarter-century woo all right okay there is also ninety nine and if he is a matchup problem which he appeared to be he was running away from Byron Jones Ezekiel Elliott and I was twelve points behind the other team that had played everybody except for let me look this guy's name up Aaron Jones is his name ninety four I packer do that theory only three packers players with four rushing touchdowns the game of the Super Bowl era last one was Dorsey Levens wow vert throw his way down the field haven't seen that too much this year eagles did it pretty damn good job everyone else is not and Green Bay and Detroit is a my fantasy team stinks I mean it blows it really it just it's terrible I'm Owen for coming into this week and it couldn't it couldn't have I couldn't the appreciate you calling into this show you're always have a spotter you don't have to score four touchdowns every time but I'd love to check back in with you later on this season that has started out just dynamite for administered you're just you're you're that playmaker right then in that moment and try to cheat every time I step on the field when you are in the double era to have four or more scrimmage touchdowns against the cowboys since Sterling Sharpe Nineteen and what you did not only destroyed the cowboys it destroyed me I mean like absolute every single time I looked at my phone I'm like again now this is one big family and then and it just it just trickled down in this this show on the food I mean the office makes play they're all celebrating together to defend Mesa play they're all celebrating together we're all happy for each other somebody that lurks somebody that lurks in the college game that is affecting Gopher broke that was him walking in and looking at where you could bet on everything and everything like seven elevens have not only the way that a team might draft but a team what team do the coach Okay and that person's name is not to house that and as we saw from Byron Jones at the combine he can he can leap in a certain direction as he can and that usually translates burst hot take fourth-down admittedly I'm admitting these things are supposed to register all right that's next on the Edwin Kiosks Gosh I just it just hit me that Musburger was in London for Oh man we gotta get back on the show it's been too long hey prepare for the ultimate showdown between the fiercest women in home renovation designed business when rock the block HDTV's newest competitions what have needed a win any more than I needed it this week and coming into the late afternoon everybody on my team and played except for Max out identical properties in the L. A. Area with the goal to add the most property value each home that's rock the block ready to rock the four downs right here on the rich Eisen Show Eddie back in the league I'm I'm one of those back so I also against any back I love that see I was trying to just get you to do something for just the Monday night aids is eighteen yards eighteen yards to become the second most prolific passer in the history of the national football heads up it's coming and it's GonNa come Thursday night and it's GonNa come Thursday night maybe on the first pass from Tom Brady because all Tom Brady Lake Past Brett Farve for third place all time and he is seventeen yards behind Peyton manning why do I bring this up because that would mean that the all time passing list would be topped one and two by active players it's been a long eight I should put my glasses on nineteen ninety eight when Marino and John elway were one and two on the list and back to back years it is rare because the time before time since that last happened the last time that happened was in nineteen ninety four ninety pardon me pardon me nineteen ninety in an eclipse essentially in terms of milestones in the national football league breeze and Brady are going to be one to atop the passing list four that these are the only time since that's in the Super Bowl era where the passing list is topped by two active players it was Marino and elway and seventy ninety seven again one thousand nine hundred ninety eight was the last time the passing list had one into being active players and all it takes one single pass of eighteen yards by Tom Brady we're gonNA take your phone calls when we come back and my four downs you're gonNA give you preview what have we got there's a milestone make it happen and by the way adding to that dim reno now sits fifth John Elway now ninth common right it is all common it's a passing league right I'm GONNA bring a second down right here I know marriage terrific and I knew Zeke's terrific and there's nobody like Christian McCaffrey right now right now on the amazing thing is when he was draft the downs with rich why did you first down I'm GonNa give you all oh I'm sure could you imagine what Brent Musburger must have been like in London was he likes saying the word lad and I'm sure he likes to say on this day he was gaining edges on Jalen Smith nobody else been able to and Layton Vandermeesch nobody else been able to and if he since nineteen fifty the only one with more scrimmage yards in the first five games of the season in that span is named Jim Brown more games with a rushing and receiving touchdowns in his first three season the others are named Alvin Kamara why no is this mix but not right now in terms of passing game than in a running game no sir he is the best

Coast will be out there for men in a booth for me rising show everybody's got a to do list drop off the dry cleaning pick-up some milk here's an idea let's add save hundreds of dollars on car insurance to that list critise before downs let's go and then there's some coaches whose hot seat is about to get hotter with a very silly now that's I down here second second down we talk about who's the best running back in the National Football League you asked me this yesterday in overreaction Monday nineteen edgerrin James and Chuck Foreign and in terms of his scrimmage yards in the first five games of this season it's the second most scrimmage yards in the first five games of the season did out of Stanford he was one of those specialists right he's supposed to be a third down back that would be great a match probably certainly not going to be out there between the tackles and the good thing is you don't have to drop off or pick up anything all you have to do is go to GEICO DOT com and in fifteen minutes you could be saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance extra money although hey wait a minute on news update somebody's spleen is feeling better swain at this point is going to do it is going to do all right that's still yeah yeah he certainly wasn't going to be the bell cow guy you certainly wasn't going to be a guy that would hit you in the mouth he'd be a guy that tried to outrun you and certainly he would he would be better in the back and of course this may be the most rewarding to do you do today offset eye they knew check to the right they wind it back right and I spray about Greg Papa Man all those years touchdown raiders now down San Francisco like voice got two great announcers they're calling football papa and Musburger on the radio car did Brent Brent musty Ghana London right right on the second kings plus Cam November we'll get to that in a second do you think it's going to be affecting the national football league and how a team might prepare for draft and who they're evaluating there's inbox that second down here's third down okay you know who's going to be affecting the national football league in December I think maybe even Tom Sawyer survey answer some questions potentially make some money along the way from all of us here at podcast one thank you for being a dedicated listener Shington is already gotten a leg up and I know that there's a rumor about Tomlin from Lockenfora that Mike Tomlin actually Jesse we'll get to that in your news if you have the number one overall selection in say a Washington or Miami you don't think Texas Longhorn fans who love the Dallas cowboys would suddenly go ahead and say get Lincoln Riley I mean the what about the jets what about the jets and maybe one and done in their head coach if it goes completely south because once here's why wouldn't you attempt to do that with all due respect to Freddie kitchens fourth-down Oh yes that Dwayne Haskins is the quarterback of the future there who would be better to bring a style of play to get the most out of Dwayne Haskins Lincoln Riley draft people and how they can be utilized in the NFL as the the college game is being brought more and more to the NFL weekend and week out but Lincoln Riley is going to have an absurd number of choices this year one of them obviously is stay in Oklahoma right another one Lincoln Riley is in play it's GonNa change a lot of people's mindsets about this guy is a Unicorn coming out of college we better get on number of teams that will have the opportunity to maybe get this guy it's going to be Chum in the coaching waters he is going to have him and it's GonNa start affecting the minds of some of some head coaches as they go about their business and certainly the minds of some owners in the NFL what is and when it all comes down to it Jason Garrett does not have a contract who would be brought in to try and help things out with that news but at some point this guy because what he's done with quarterback after quarterback after quarterback seeing what Calamar is doing in the NFL and why not bring in your own brilliant young mind bring Lincoln Riley to Atlanta and again if I have to choose another one six weeks I could see Arthur blank getting in getting out early why not bring Lincoln Riley and all you're hearing about is how Great Kyle Shanahan coordinates I don't think I even gone through all the choices what if let's just continue to Cleveland browns what if the Browns do not perform well at all and you're sitting there and you're the Hasham's and you're John Dorsey why not if he's in play again if he is in play if he's getting calls and he's mononucleosis but to give all the snaps to a guy with a an iffy spleen all last week before going into Philadelphia and he says that is Washington. DC is fired their coach. If you don't think that Lincoln Riley was GonNa get a phone call or a tire kick from Dan Snyder and his group who if they taking you here i Lincoln Riley thinking about it why not get bakers college coach and bring him the Cleveland and Hook them up for the next my you know a time. Ut's over it-it's the heartache here so I'm curious going while I'm Gonna I'm GonNA piggyback off Man Lincoln Riley is out there and a bunch of teams are going to try and get the early jump on it that's my fourth-down Geez actually which is a Thanksgiving home date against New Orleans and if the saints with brees come in and just blow the doors off of that stadium and and then bouncing a general manager after letting him draft and Adam gazes the interim general manager and I know that it's not his fault that somebody catches if let's just say the Dallas Cowboys get one and done in the playoffs or even to in done in the playoffs more don't make it well they're gonNA make it I'm I mean what what's going on with Adam Gates over the first six months has been nothing but weird nothing but weird in terms of having him in this has been very difficult to watch two at Miami home for the giants at Washington Home for Oakland at Cincinnati there's a tunnel actually say anything with any certainty knees name's Arthur blank but they've got a game in Arizona Heaven forbid they lose that one and they're one in five third down okay and say that not one but two more NFL head coaches are going to get the axe during the playing season wow Lincoln Riley is in play you only have three wins at that point in time and there's a month ago that's a scenario that I envisioned and you look at the jets the jets he gave Luke Falk enough snaps in practice last week it didn't look like that you're already hearing the sharks in the water there in New York City Wow and what are you going to do with Sam Darnold the jets and you hear Lincoln Riley play real and if the rumor is true that they reached out to my college coach last year while Todd Bowles the coaching search start with that one that's the way it works and then Oh God he's that good I gotta get him really well we've got a month to go have Dallas at home Monday night at home against New England there at Jacksonville I'm hoping to get CJ Moseley back because the defense this rumor goes this guy's awesome he's incredible and then if you are one of those places that hires Korn ferry whatever these head hunters that take money for something and if they're like Oh and could you imagine ten to eight no that Baker is struggling right now but we'll see what Jalen hurts is going to be up for the heisman trophy this guy's going to be so red hot let me throw this one out at we can win football games home for Tampa and then there's that that one that's sitting out there like a stinker annable games here and you should if your quarterback whisperer with Sam Darnold does it you know you should win some of these football games scheme it finally that's how things get crazy sick phone call Michael in Chicago Illinois you're here on the rich Eisen show what's up Michael Case One

Insurance visit geico dot com for a free rate quo. We got a special guest. We're going to do it right now. At the top of the hour. He is a former pro bowl running back and the radio color analyst for the new orleans. Saints who better to talk to the deuce mcallister. After that thirty eight to three whipping the saints put on tampa evan. It was a long open. Welcome to the couple appreciate how you doing tonight. A great to have you all and and that game. Yesterday i mean. What do you think happened. People expected a good game. Some people expect the tampa to get revenge and even the season series at one. A piece what do you think led to. You know new new orleans just totally trampling over to the buckeye nears. Couple things guys. I think you know when you look at it That was the first time all season at the saints. Where underdog and sean payton. Really use that as motivation for his team to be able to say. Nobody believes that you can win this game. You know everybody feels like your view. You haven't won your own division the last three years and even though we know you have someone else's coming to take it away because of the quarterback and we can all agree. That brand is a phenomenal quarterback. And so the saints really had a chip on their shoulder as far as into that game and the other piece of it. I don't think people really understood losing alley marquette. They're left guard In that game how important of a player. He was for them Just because that meant you were going to be playing a backup in that key position any quarterback regardless of who he is they do not like pressure up the middle and i thought that the saints were able to really without quarterback affect brady by simply be able to win inside. Let me ask you about drew. Brees the last couple of years. I don't want to just like what al have. The specific numbers but it seemed like his arm has gotten weaker as the year goes on as time goes on. He looked really good to me yet last night before that i'd say he was. Okay you know one terrible. They were still men managing the win despite being down a couple of key players. What do you make of drew. Brees season where he is and how does his arm look to you. I mean what age you're going to lose as far as the arm strength and drew was never a guy that had the strongest arm in in first place but if you really followed the saints you knew for the last two to three years. They really haven't pushed the ball the field that much anyway. I mean they will still take a shot here and there and even you know. There's it's where they put tasting. He'll in to really take you know the forty to fifty yard. Pass down the field From an accuracy standpoint or at least a strong arm that that that's what he comes in and gives you At times and so you know that the safeties they're compressing the field but the one thing that we still. I guess all will agree on. He's still very accurate. And so the intermediate throws he is going to be able to hit a lot of those throws you talk about the back shoulder. Throw as far as a is concern. He can still hit. Those throws drew is giving you exactly what you needed or want it. Because in my opinion the strength of this saints team is upfront is the offensive line and as long as they are able to run the football then droop and steel dish and throw the football around to the weapons that they have on the outside. They just have to be able to run the football as well do. Thomas of course came back yesterday. Didn't do a ton three catches seventeen yards but obviously is good to have him back because even when he's not catching the football he's drawing attention. I talk about how big that is for new orleans to have him back and secondly with him being out so long it just seem you know you saw reports about there being issues and there was some one story about he. Can't he. better be careful before he becomes the next antonio brown. What's kinda going on there with michael thomas. You know as far as he's standing with the team if you know off the field or whatever well you had a couple more catches you had a couple more yardage as well. So it wasn't. The game plan was not to feed. Michael thomas thomas completely. They were able to work him into the mix as far as to complement some of the other guys. The coverage did could probably role to him when he was on the field. He didn't play his full amount. As far as seventy to eighty five percent of the plays. They didn't want to just throw him out there. He had missed You know that was his first game back since the first game. So you talk about missing Six or seven straight games. But i think the the biggest thing is to go out there and compete. And if you've been around michael thomas. She knows that that's what he likes to. He likes to compete owned mistake And the situation and he had cianci gardner. He admitted that his emotions got the best of him. And i think from his perspective in his team's perspective they've moved on from that you know that that situation is not something that's going to endor and ball over. As far as the locker is concerned they already had a strong locker room. As far as veterans are concerned. So that that that's not going to be an issue You know. I know there was some rumors floated about him. Maybe possibly being traded That wasn't really in play this year. Because of the money that the saints would have been on the hook for and you know right now. They're not when you look at it next year cab. They're not in the best for that. So moving in wasn't really an option as well when you look at the nfc. I picked the saints to go to the super bowl. But what other teams do you see. Possibly in the way. I mean obviously seattle has defensive issues. You guys have already. The saints have already handled the bucks twice. the packers. Beat the saints in new orleans. You know like who. Who else do you like or what. What team do you look at as the biggest threat or those those teams. I think he talked about still to buccaneers. They're gonna be there and talk about seattle as long as russell. Wilson is there I mean they've got some issues offensive line as well as Secondary y you know. They're older team. And they're just not the same tamp that you've you've no i mean they're just not the same seattle that you grew up with as far as defense so we know they have some issues there. But i still look at you. Know the packers as long as aaron rodgers is. They're they're always going to be a question and then the other question that we all have remembers who is healthy down the stretch. You know that that's always going to play a big factor into you know what team gets hot. Who can who can at least get in that race and they're healthy and then they can rest. Pass me because any time that you guys that can rush the passer. You help yourself particularly when you talk about playoff football. Do stay day. Expanded the playoffs to seven teams in each conference this year before the season. Now there's talk that if because of cova day low or whatever you know that they may go to eight teams this season. How do you feel about playoff expansion whether seven teams or teams. You really like the opportunity of getting a by if you're not the one seed right now how it is. Only the one we'll get the by teams are really pushing to have that by week and obviously the have home field advantage You know. I'm fine. Either way. I mean i would love more teams to be able to get in that play off. It's it's one and done anyway You know. I think what really is going to be interesting. Is you have some cities that are leading a couple of fans in and you're having some cities that don't let any in so you're really taken away that homefield advantage from that from that standpoint. So i'm interested to see that affect the team because they're hosting but they they're limited just because of covert of how many fans they can have in a stand until you know maybe some team now. As far as travel is concerned it doesn't affect because they don't have to worry about crowd noise and some of those issues. Yeah when you look at This season and just the difference in games or even with television data. They don't seem nearly as big a new notice. You played crowds. Make a difference. Don't they like. Can't you like play off of the crowd or rough from an emotional standpoint. They definitely make a difference just to be able to make guy has to focus a little bit more. They make a difference. But you know just to give you that little extra push from that crowd being involved in getting loud. They'd definitely make a difference. And so you know if you only have three thousand and four thousand fans in there. I don't know how much of a difference that that makes. And so you know. I i know at some point. That's going to come into play particularly when you may have a team that allows twenty thousand and twenty five thousand into a stadium deuce You play during an air. I mean there were two of your seasons when you carry over three hundred twenty times a season and now of course. You don't see a lotta guys. doing that. Guys are catching the ball a lot more. I mean you. You were receiver as well but do you. Would you prefer your plan in your air where there was a bell cow who was going to get it. Twenty to twenty five times have respect for the running back right yes. That's true because they. I think they've belittle running back to a largely or now where you've got two guys at least and you know you might get eleven twelve carries and you're catching a lot of passes. Which air would you prefer to play in. As a running back. I would have loved to stay where i was as far as my era. Because i knew i was gonna touch it twenty to twenty five times every week but the problem with our air. You talk about guys in jamal. Lewis was a different player because he was able to last but he still had the near injuries. You talk about tiki tiki bar. You're talking about guys played ten plus years. But you know a lot of didn't last to get to that ten point ten plus years because we beat our bodies up you had over four hundred touches in a season you know. Not only the the the the the carries but also somebody and then so now guys they should be able to get to that second and or third contract. Because you're not carrying the load. You're not carrying a complete low. You only have one hundred fifty carries but you may go out there and you may catch sixty to seventy balls and so you should be able to play for ten years eleven years twelve years. Because you're not you're sharing the load with another guy and so sometimes even three guys so you know i. I love the era. I love the special specialization. And you got to understand as well. The rules changed so much more for throw him football Than what they were. Fifteen to. Twenty years ago. When i was out there. You know until they protect the quarterback a lot more They won't the fans involved. We know scoring Is is what fans won't to see. And so you know they they. They won't those fans to be able to enjoy that and that's good. I'll just go say. And that's why i think. Sometimes you look at these passing records and numbers and touchdown for the first time in the history of the nfl teams are combining for more than fifty points a game and that never happened in in this league and i think that has a lot to do with what you were talking about is is. It's not ball control grou- you running. The football as much is just a free for all. And i get the scoring part but sometimes i wish it wasn't just an air raid every game. I mean that's definitely what you have now. And i mean because the interest it's it's it's the fantasy part of it you know who was scoring how. How can i draw that crowd. How can i continue to grow that crowd. Because i mean you've got probably three or four teams that are averaging over thirty points Per game and so you go back and you look and that's that's really unheard of. That's the greatest show on turf type stuff. But you've got multiple teams doing right now until you know Defenses are it's tough to be a defender in this league right now because the game is really not made for you. I mean most of the times most of the pillars. You gotta be called on the defensive players just because they want to protect you off into guys that's deuce mcallister. Thankful bowl running back.

Chris arrival the magic city monday. These iowa saying up in the booth getting busy as we come to. You live from the geiko fox. Sports radio studios and rob of pat mahomes and the kansas city chiefs had a win yesterday. Close close caught thirty three thirty one over carolina and i think pat pat mahomes had another know huge performance as these last few weeks. He's he's really been lighting it up. But he threw for three hundred. Seventy two yards four touchdowns now. He has twenty five touchdowns and one pick period. That i mean that is an incredible statistic twenty five touchdowns one pick and i think rob his performance combined with russell. Wilson's bad game or poor game against buffalo. Russell had two touchdowns they lost forty four thirty four but he also had two interceptions and two fumbles. And so i think that those two things combined i think pat mahomes has pulled ahead of russell wilson. Now it's nine weeks in. This is kind of like the heisman will. We'll be doing our weekly updates. But i think that that mahomes now has pulled ahead in the race for the mvp. And and one thing. i look at. He hasn't had any bad games. He's add some games where he only had. You mentioned earlier two touchdowns even how a game they routed denver. He had one touchdown but he yet to have any bad games. And that's because you doesn't turn the ball over. I mean it's hard to have a bag game when you complete sixty seven percent passes and you don't turn the ball over and so for those reasons and more. I think that mahomes for now has moved ahead of wilson who i think has been the mvp for every week up. Until now. i would go wilson second air rogers third and then it's really those three right now. And then you've got josh allen. Brady obviously takes a step back allen. Play well he's not really in it to that degree because he's had a few so performances as well but they're also a record that mahomes broke and it was that he became the first the fastest player to one hundred touchdowns and he scored is through for his one hundredth touchdown in forty games. Now dan marino had owned the record for decades where he threw four hundred touchdowns in forty four games so mahomes breaks that but there was another record that was tied of marino's marino. The the marina was just getting. They took the eraser to marino's name in the record book. And you think it was even more impressive than what What did get last time. We heard dan marino's name. It wasn't good news and yesterday and it was a good news. Because two quarterbacks really you know right have clips things that he did and he was a great player. I mean i watch. I remember them. Arena you notice. Chris from the very beginning i mean he was just an went to the super bowl his second year and people thought miami's great. Oh my god wait till he gets a little bit better whatever they never got pat which is credible and it's a shame because they viewed as a great quarterback in the all time great hall of famer all that. But it's a shame you never want super bowl. Rob now it was. It was amazing when you think about and how good he was and all that but yeah you know. There were two two record. Just i wrote a column for deadspin today. And i just thought that lamar jackson's record of going twenty five and five in his first thirty games as a starter was more impressive. Not that what mahomes done. I'm not poop wounded. I think the game has changed a lot. We're throwing his such a big part of it. A lot of the numbers. Chris we talk about when we look back in past. All the numbers are skewed. Right all the passing numbers because it's just a different game and that that's that's not a knock on on all mahomes. He's doing what the game plan calls for right but to win at a historic pace. And obviously if lamar if they win you know. He tied to record twenty five and five with dan marino. It's the best art of anybody in the nfl. Since nineteen sixty six. And i just put a premium at winning and you could say well. We've got this. He's got that it's a. It's a team. But we do look at the quarterbacks and we do look at them and their record and when they win and as a starter. We don't do that for any other player. We don't have the wide receivers record when he plays you know what i mean. Chris is always about the quarterback. And i'm very very impressed at where he is. And this is not talking about a lifetime. Achievement award what he's done in the postseason is just that this league's been around for a long time you know can contest. I mean you can't one guys won a super bowl right and the other guy hasn't so there's no. You can't have a debate about that. But i don't know where are you on. Which one is more impressive the hundred touchdowns or the winning winning at that kind of historic clip. Or they the same where you i think. It's hard to compare because to me to some degree. It's apples and oranges. Because you're talking about wins which is obviously the most important thing. But that's a team and you're talking about individual achievement. Mahomes is i think. Twenty three and seven his first thirty game so not not as good as Jackson as far as the winds by obviously still very good. It's a little hard for me to divorce. The discussion from the postseason Just because we know you know what happened is like you know we we know mahomes has the super bowl. We know you also had the appearance in afc championship and we know lamar has it. One has been two in the playoffs. So is hard to kind of get that out of the mind But i think ultimately it's winning you know i. I don't think there's any question who the better quarterback is. I would take pat mahomes every day all day. Everyday over lamar lamar's really good. I like him. But i'll take mahomes but you know twenty five and five. It's good it's really good. I mean like you said. Nobody's done it since dan marino It takes a little bit of the shine off that you know. They got destroyed by kansas city and lost to pittsburgh. You know they're wins. Haven't been the most impressive but the cultural playing well and they beat them kultura five and two going into that but you all come from behind. That was the first. I i collect behind which was impressive. Here's the other thing to you. Go ahead. I don't mean to cut your said here's the other thing i just don't think it's fair to look at him and paint him with some postseason loser. Because he's all into. He's only had one full regular season. He played six or seven games his rookie year. They went to the playoffs. They lost i. i'm not pooh poohing. It rallies played one full season. I just it's hard for me to take a look at that and go off. You can't win in the playoffs and now people have. That's what people have done to him. And and i. I don't think it's fair. Well i was gonna say. I am not paying him with a brush. Can't win on a play on him out some people just point now. he's all in too. But i think the reason people do that and i think this is fair. I mean i don't think like you said you can't brand him a loser or anything like that. He's young long way to go. But i think the reason people question is because his style is so different if he were passer a guy like mahomes or somebody else any of these other guys. Justin herber joe burrow. Any of these guys if. Throw it as much as most quarterbacks and as well as the top quarterbacks think people would necessarily be questioning it. Because i think what they're questioning is not lamar. It's his style and it's can you win big in the playoffs running the ball that much which a quarterback and what people have said and i think it's fair is that if you get behind is tough to come back and win because they have a you'll what if they now behind and they were they give if they get ahead that's great. That's what that style is. Bill can run among one quick hypothetical. You said you'd take patrick mahomes all day. Of course if if lamar beats him in the playoffs to sit in meeting the afc championship game where we would that. Change your mind on. Say no. I mean this is. I'm watching their games. And lamar remains and he went to the super bowl the two years ago. That wouldn't take brady over you know now. Obviously and lamar it's to me. It's his the way he plays. He's not a great passer. He's just not at this point. Well we'll see if he can win and apply. I mean winning. The regular season is nice. But you gotta win in the play offs but i. It's not even a question. And i would expect lamar at some point to win a playoff game against patrick mahomes ideal j date baltimore's gonna get to the super bowl this year. I know that's i don't but that's your pick and you know you gotta right to stay with it. But i think at some point he may. He may have a victory oklahoma. Who's going to lose in the playoffs. You know going forward at some point so but no. i think. He's a far better quarterback. And i would take him all right. We got a question for you. Eight seven seven nine nine on fox.

He's the odd couple chris arrive. We are coming to you. Live from the geiko fox sports radio studios on a magic city monday. Dj iowa. sam is getting busy on choose. I threw it out to you guys. Eight seven seven ninety nine. On fox dan marino saw one record broken on sunday and one record tied. Lamar jackson tied him. Go in twenty five and five in his first thirty games as a starter and patrick mahomes broke his record. Quickest quarterback ever to one hundred touchdown passes marino's record was forty. Four mahomes didn't in forty games and had only nineteen picks while doing so marino was around fiftyish. Disabled was right. He said marino play two hundred and forty career games ride and had to fifteen hundred and fifty two interceptions and again. I mean he's all time great. It was just a different name of like fifties some more interceptions touchdowns in his career. Yeah and we and we were talking about brett farve. Who had the most right right right four. Yeah he was just made what is basically. What jameis winston did last year. Which was what thirty. Td's thirty picks or something like that. It's nothing that's what you know. Far was doing many years right now but again it was a different era and all that. So let's let's hit. We got a couple more people. We're to squeeze in here chris. What about brandon in dallas on the odd couple of fox. Sports radio up gentlemen. Great talk to you as always thanks. I men. First of all both of these guys came into the league with great situations became with two organizations. That really got it together. They identified what both of these guys do. Well and they built around. All both of their skill sets it. Just so happens that That patrick mahomes is just more accurate of a quarterback and his game is built around throwing. The mars is built around running then throwing. And i just have to give the edge to patrick mahomes because what he does is built for winning in the playoffs. And it's built for longevity well but that's not what we're talking about and i just want to just help me with this because this is the state that i think people make when imprisoned not about either more breath okay but but we're not talking about his whole career because i don't think there's a debate for guy won super bowl compared to a guy didn't we're talking about what's more impressive. Going twenty five and five in your first thirty games or throwing one hundred touchdown your first forty games. Which one is more impressive to you. Did we lose brandon because you cut him off because everybody goes there like we always talk about. We're not talking about lifetime achievement. We wouldn't even be talking about this if that was the topic chris. I don't think that there's a topic nateing connecticut. You're on the couple of fox sports radio. Hey guys it's up. i'm great. How are you great man. Yeah i just think that we're really talking about a player record. Team ones are all about a team. Football and players at this is really more of a t of a player that we wanna see us better as a player. So i think touchdowns throwing for over more touchdowns is i've been that's way better. And also lamar. He doesn't play the quarterback position. I don't think he's running back. I think patrick homes. No data better quarterback. Yeah you know. And i love here from nate. He's rob gee just whispered in my ear. He's going to take your job. Someday he is going to if he wants to work in sports. he's off to a good start I think this robin as i said when we were talking i say this hard to kinda just in your mind you know. Remove just keep it to the regular season when you know what has happened in the postseason for both players is like how much you wanna praise the warriors right the golden state warriors for winning seventy three games. When that was great it was awesome but we know how that ended and it ended with them losing in the finals to cleveland. Always hard divorce there. But i'll say this. I think it. Let's say that. Jackson had a super bowl so say of had to. I think that'd be a real argument there. Then you know. Just if jackson and s obviously a huge if you know not everyone a super bowl. But i think if he did have a super bowl it would probably be easier for people that how. 'bout you take away from homes and super bowl. Take away mahomes a super bowl. Well i think you probably have to take away. Any of his playoff wins. No just say just says impressive. Dailies get to the conference championship when other guy and won a playoff game. But i look i. There's nothing that's going to convince me. That lamar jackson's this is a better as good of a quarterback as mahomes. I mean it's just the styles. Even if lamar jackson's role in that styles only gonna work for a limited number of years and mahomes is style can work for the next twelve years if not more so even now you see in the second year. Jackson is struggling a lot more not struggling but not having the same individual production that he had last year. So it's a it's a throw in passing league and jackson's grovonni. Because they weren't winning. They continue to win win. Tell me about winning more not. He's he's don't mayors. He hits he made this great. Now say that about a lot of teams because they not i. I don't know why you know by saying he's not really good but if you going see here. Say he's as good as pat. Mahomes all i just i don't. I don't think that's the argument. I just think that you're you're playing. Want a guy who's played one and a half years and he claimed it on playoff games and you've basically like apple pay win not dash. That's the tone of it is like you know. What a playoff game so i. I can't even validate what he's doing. That's what it sounds. Don't tell me what i'm saying. I know what i'm saying. You know that's how you taking it. That's not how it sounds. But i think he can. I said i think you'll beat mahomes at some point in a playoff game. Rounder meaning is a better quarterback.

We got bruce feldman fox sports college football reported. We can get into. What's going on in wisconsin. More with him rob. He's also the author of the new book. Flip the script on the twenty nine hundred lsu tigers so all also. I loved to hear like just a rumblings for man arbor. If you're caught my trash talking to on deadspin today. I trust jim harbaugh. And what he's done in his record their michigan and what's going on so it'd be interesting to see what he says just without him. Having you know a contract. Pass chris any chance that jim harbaugh dozen return next year if they don't give them a contract. I love to hear that. Yeah it'll be a good conversation. Keep your life for that. And of course. Rob this is also what a little trash talk in tuesday woo. Who ninety nine or fox your chance to trash anyone anything in the world sports. We do that in about forty minutes on about thirty minutes. You bet a cop on the line. I get through. 'cause the lions you'll be jammed and we'll give you about thirty or forty five seconds. Chris and we will not interrupt you. Let you have you say here on the odd couple. That's right even if you trash rob we'll let it go or credit. Lets you just fully. Go all rob Packers trade deadline comes and goes. They don't day today to be honest like any big nothing big. It's or significant. That i can recall. He may anything that that the nfl america yet really. I guess that's a no Do you think there's still a very good team. And they got a shot But i think they they. They need to do some things or need like i think it could have helped themselves by a improving. You could say that about anybody. But i just think they could be a little more physical and tougher on defense and certainly. It wouldn't have helped if your defense is going to be a tad soft. Then bolster the offense and give you a great quarterback some more weapons. I would love robin. I get it. He's a free agent after the season. But we'll full. The really coulda helped him. He really coulda helped him across from davante adams. Oh yeah. I mean you don't see that many trades. I'm not making excuses. It's not the greatest. Just not baseball. You go get that. Left handed. Pitcher chris oughta home run hitter. That you need to add to your lineup. It's a little different. We've seen more recently than we had in the nfl but still not. A lotta trades are made. The trade deadline is not a hot bed for for movement of players. But yeah they could've added either somewhere on the defensive end as well to stop the run or a receiver. There's no doubt about it and they refused to do it because they don't wanna give up on a rental but if the rental turns out to put you over the top then it's worth it 'cause 'cause it is about trying to win if you can if you can make a move. I remember when the pistons went and got was she'd wallace. Yes in two thousand and four. They were a good team right. But i don't know if they were gonna make it to the championship without adding she'd wallace. I they win that ring with high sheet there that meeting. They were a good thing. Yeah they they were a good team but he added something to that to know now and he was a really good player but he is a really. They had a good thing going but they added another piece. Well that's what i'm saying. It's like you have a chain like to me rob in professional sports. You need to capitalize when you can. you know. it's hard to win a super bowl. It is hard to win a super bowl. And when you have an all time great quarterback which gives you a chance every year then you gotta. If you're not quite there go get what you need to. At least give yourself the best shot. That's all i'm saying rob. I think i mean let's just keep it real. I would say at least half of air rogers's career in green bay and i've been critical of him because he hasn't been at his best in. Nfc title game for the most part. But still i would say rob out half of his career. They of not giving him everything they could to give him. The best shot at getting to the super bowl. I mean you know. We know how bad their defense was for a lot of those years. But here's the other problem too is that they have been drafted any skill position players in the first round this entire him his him since i think about what we're talking about and yet they've been able to do what they've been able to do. Imagine had they added some pieces and this is what we're talking about is like they. They run their organization. A certain way and it doesn't make any sense. Can you imagine having a quarterback of that caliber. You've never in the first round an offensive league skill position player that that seems almost. He hadn't been there for three years chris. He'd been there for twelve years. Joe montana had jerry rice. Tom brady brady's another one. They haven't given me great weapons but he did have gronk any. He did have randy moss for a little bit Dan marino had two two guys. Duper and clayton. You know like. I mean peyton manning had marvin harrison and reggie wayne. Most of the guys have had you know some really good adams is really good greg jennings was really good but file night and not sure the defense when he needed right and so i just think they missed another opportunity. Look they'll make the playoffs. They'll be dangerous. I think their defense seems a little soft to get to the super bowl. But you know you got air arrives. You'll have a shot. I rob never interesting things around the quarterback out in the nfc. jimmy garoppolo. and look. I i must be for myself. But i think you agree. We get it. He's not aaron rodgers. He's not steve young. he's not john elway. he's not. Tom brady but the way they talk about him. At least these reports rob in his tenure in san francisco here. Here's a source close to jason lockenfora from cbs sports. Here's a quote about garoppolos. Future there because we know he's out what the next six weeks with the ankle. high ankle. Sprain here's the quote from a source. It's wait and see on his future. He's still under evaluation. It could go in a few different directions and is it possible. He's not the guy next year that they're saying that as a question that's fair. I don't think that's lost on anybody. Kyle shanahan thinks he can turn almost anyone into a star. He's having to lead in the super bowl and he couldn't turn nick mullins into a star. How about that. For twelve years ago without garoppolo. He's a lot of success with a lot of different guys in the salary. Structure on that team has changed dramatically. The last few years. He's not a guy who thinks he needs a thirty million dollars a year quarterback to win and they are an exactly gushing about the guy that they have now. Of course that guy being jimmy garoppolo rob. Here's what i got to say jimmy. Garoppolo is not chopped liver. And that's how some people talk about him. I get it. They only threw the ball eight times in the playoff game. Not one or one of ninety one but but that was that was coverage though what was running the ball right. We'll why did but then at the end of the super bowl data on the ball when they ask you is no is gone. What that's what i'm saying. Let's look in kyle shanahan. Everybody's favourite offensive genius. He's a genius genius. Fata to super bowls. You're right and that's because you wanna be cute. Yes you want to show everybody what you can do that. Jodi star guy room. The coaches are happy. Just winning and not just coaches in the nfl. It's in all sports jerry jones. Don't wanna just win chris. He wants to win his way. He wants to get the credit matinee e wanted to show off all the bells and whistles. So it gets rid of mr mitch. Trubisky starts nick. Foles think he's going to be able to open it up. I'll give you one. I remember in detroit with the playoffs on the line. Bill parcells coaching. Chris and the jets are at the one yard line of the line. They need to win the game right and you game first and goal at the one. Run the ball in and when they right one you know what they do not only does he not run it in. He has a halfback option. Chris where a rookie running back throws an interception is that when they had. Neil o'donnell was the quarterback. Neil o'donnell was the quarterback out. That's how i lost a game chris. Rookie running back at the one yard line is throwing a halfback option. That was bill parcell trying to show you that. He was the smartest guy. Why why would you let a rookie. Have that responsibility. A veteran would know if it's not there. Chris rolled out of bounds. What are you doing and of course. The greatest example is a seattle peak peak. Carol that team could add to super bowl so back to back no what that changes their legacy that changes. What's a wilson. It changes pete carroll. It changes the legion of boom. Everything there at the. Have your line chris with the it in whitby in with the best running back into the league who had over one hundred yards in that super bowl game. It wasn't like he was stymied all night. What that's why. That's why i'm looking at college. Shanahan while he points the finger at jimmy garoppolo. I'm saying wait a minute. If jimmy garoppolo is that bad how did he get you. Six minutes away from winning the super bowl. Six and a half minutes. They were up what they gave up. Twenty one points their ten. They gave up twenty one points in the last eight minutes of that game. Here's the deal rob. They ran for one and forty one yards on twenty two carries in that game. That's more than six yards a pop and yet when it gets late instead talks about the past garoppolo miss to emmanuel sanders and i did miss that he did. Yes but how about running the footba. 'cause i'm looking at the problems looking at the play by play on this earlier and in the fourth quarter they gave the ball to raheem mostert eighty rambled for seventeen yards. Okay right he most goes for seventeen yards with two thirty nine left okay. Are they still up by that point. I believe they're still up. I can't see the score. But and then they pass the ball like yeah because my own rob g check on that but they point is they passed. That's when they started to an iraq and they should have been handed off. And i just think rob garoppolos twenty four and eight is a starter that ain't chopped liver. We remember what san francisco was like before he got there. They were horrible. One in ten he immediately wins his next five games. Five straight they give him. That's when they gave him. The big contract made him the highest paid quarterback in the league and any. What was that rob. Gee that most to carry. They were down by four points at that. They were down. Okay down okay. The net game the when they had the lead they needed to run the full. Y'all like they were doing. That was the biggest thing. and yes. You need jimmy g. To make a couple passes. Chris on third down on third. And you know what i mean or to get you a first down and keep the clock and moving but they went away from the wrong and they started thrown every dow. Here's what i do look if you're not they're not obviously not the highest on jimmy g. It what i do. I keep him for next year right for next year. That's the last year of his deal. I believe and if you if you if you get tired of after that then maybe you can move on. Let him go as a free agent or see if you can get him as a much better deal what you view as a better deal but unless you have something better that you're definitely getting i'm sorry i just don't get why they're ready to get rid of him so badly all right the. Nfl is on the verge of making a colossal mistake. We'll get into that. Next is the couple. Kristen rob fox sports radio. Be sure to catch live editions of the odd couple with chris.

Alex tight shirt has quite the sense of humor. You guys don't get to hear it all the time but i do off. The air is hilarious. All right it's the couple of krizner rob coming to you. Live from the geiko fox. Sports radio studios. It is a trash talking. Tuesday so get too hot takes ready to trash anyone or anything in the world of sports make you got about forty seconds or so to do what you got to do. So get your takes ready. Start calling in about ten minutes because the lines do heat up quickly some of my students at usc. Chris you know. I always start every class. You gotta give me a heartache. Really pick somebody yes. So that's how we start to class so there's some some of my students would be pretty good if they have called on. that was just. They're just think like like have something. It's a way of making them be prepared. You know what like right. We're what's going on. Could we talk sports to and what's going on so it's a way of being ready just in case my call on you. That's right all right. We're coming to live from the guy. Go fox sports radio studios rob. I know how you feel. But i didn't even have to ask you but i know how you feel about this. All right so story comes out yesterday that the nfl's competition committee is going to you know with cova. If they miss a week we know they talked about. Do they expand the season. Do they go to an eighteenth wing week so on and so forth. What they're saying as a contingency plan in case they lose some games to covid. They are going to propose having eight teams in each conference. Make the playoffs now. Remember it used to be six just last year. It was six in each conference. They upped it to seven which i'm fine with. I'm not but now already. Great up to eights. I'm gonna let you have first dibs on this one. I'm against it. I just making putting everybody in the playoffs. Doesn't make sense to me and here we are at. Here's for money if they raise right. It's trying to pick up money because of not having crowd chris. It's always a money grab instead of talking about the competition. You're already talking about the nfc leased and now you're adding another team. How about a tour two teams. Make it from there chris up. No but you know. What i'm saying is my point is it doesn't make any sense. It just doesn't nothing was wrong with the nfl players when it was six. I wasn't that high on a win. Went to seven. And now you're telling me you wanna make an eight from each conference. Why other hey folks. Espn cbs. guess what. We've got two more playoff game. Who got money was to bid for this. That's what it is. That's all it is robin. Here's the thing i don't like about it. Look i'm fine with them going to seven because that's still is half the league. That's fourteen teams out of thirty two. That's not half the league that's fine but going to eight now Sixteen as half the teams. Here's my problem with it. There's a few things if you were just doing it for this year but not in the future if you're saying we're just doing it because the covert but we know what would happen if they did it this year. There's a good chance they would keep it one. I'm not a fan of you. Change changing the rules in the middle of the season right so so we started the season thinking. It was seven teams in each conference. Gonna make the playoffs now. It's eight halfway through the season though. I'm sorry that is wack. That is bush league. They don't even do that stuff in pop warner so. That's number one number two. Here's the problem when you it's one thing in the nba nhl or even baseball to have a lot of playoff teams because you have series right and it's rare that the worst team is going to beat the better team in a series so even if you have an eighth seed. It's rare that they're going to be a one seed in a series but if it's one in done anything can happen and i get football's a different sport. It's a little harder to win a one in done game in football than the other sports but still anything can happen in a one game scenario and now you open it up to that eighth team. Who's not going to be very good knocking off. The i team. That's maybe the best store the seven seed knocking off to see whatever it is. I just think you open it up more for the possibility that you're better teams. Don't advance so. I don't like it. I think that's too many teams rob and also think when you wanted a great the greatest thing about football. Let's be honest. Every sunday matters right every week is huge now. Because there's so nfl right. There's so few game but if you keep adding playoff teams you diminish the regular season a little bit more because now every game doesn't mean as much because oh eight teams. Make it eight of the sixteen conference. Make the playoffs right right. That's those are reasons. I don't like it seven. I'm fine with but i think eight is just too many. We got our man.

I was careful how we guys say the dreaded voter confidence missing to be ice right well not always but it can be in a lot of cases has i. It is in this point in It's so bad. There's no way that adam gates could stick around come on man. This is just. If you're the ownership man you see what's going on. It's just ugly. There's just no way. No no way. I wouldn't have even giving him the vote of confidence. Nah distinct because he less. I'm like he's a big part of our future now. Let's future means the next three weeks so that it's not as we get to the half pointed season with the talk. The whole conversation will be about his career. So you put that to rest. Do you know what i made. So guys can just play otherwise every day in the locker room for the is in new york chris. It's like should adam gates be fired what's going on. You wanna send a bad message to trevor lawrence. Nah can't wear the message that you gotta worry about trevor. He's gone high. And we don't have bruce feldman foxworth co college football reported. Let's start there bruce. Trevor lawrence. We just talked about it. There's the speculation that's all it is that he may not want to play for the jets. Do you know anything about this. And what are your thoughts. I don't know. I mean anything really concrete on that guys. I my my hunches. He's not gonna say anything to box him in one way or the other because it doesn't do him any good to do that at this point You know the jephson ideal franchise probably not. But i don't you know. Look we'll see how this season plays out for clemson. Obviously he's not gonna be able to play this weekend because he's you know still dealing with You know in the quarantine from from the koga protocol. And so they play notre dame. He won't be out. There were no does he. Does he win a heisman. This year already won a national title. I'd be surprised. Trevor lawrence is the guy who comes back for another year whether it's jets or not I don't know. I mean it doesn't strike me as from what i know from. You know from people who are closer. Trevor lawrence something. He would do that way. I think he would think you know what i can. If that's where the system is as long as dictated. That i am then i will. I will go there. And i'll try to make some better but there's a long time between now and the draft or even now the deadline for other classes and talking about trying to make something better. That was the goal. When i went to michigan and the numbers are ugly. I mean you could talk about olwin. Five against ohio state one in four bowl games two and thirteen against top ten teams twenty nine and no at home against everybody except their rivals. And they're one and six against michigan state and ohio state at the big house and he doesn't have a contract past next year. What's going on here bruce. Is there any chance that he might go back to the nfl. If they don't offer him an extension or something. Can you see him. Coaching michigan as a lame duck. You know the thing that is always stopped me on on jim harbaugh was he is. We've always heard he's ultimate competitor and the fact until he much less win the big ten but beats the rival ohio state. How did he walk away from that. I that doesn't square with me. does he. just basically given and go. I'm not. I can't get it done i'm gonna go back to the nfl. I know i was a pretty good. I was a good. Nfl coach at least forty niners I don't know i mean. I don't think anybody knows knows that. I do think when you look at the situation of your michigan person. I don't know who you look at and say. Yeah that guy is going to come in. But i feel confident. It's going to be better than jim. Harbaugh at god who is leading coach out. Like if i was running. I would let him coach out. I wouldn't give him an extension gonna stick around. Letting coach your i. I would think he wouldn't want to are you saying maybe if he's such a competitive guy. Maybe he would do that. I think he would but i know. I don't know that told me that. But the part that i was gonna say is it's been a really disappointing rod especially after the first two years i e versus winds ten games the second year. He wins ten games and they lose ohio state in overtime. And but since then it has been a real disappointment. Now he's had five seasons four of them have had they finished in the top twenty. It's not it's it's the measuring stick is obviously especially you rob. You know you were up up for my time. It's it's ohio safe. That's michigan state and this michigan state team they lost credits. Mel tucker forgetting them ready. But that's not a good michigan. State team to lose to know and michigan was twenty three point favorites and mel tucker gets a signature win after losing the rutgers. At home right yeah. It's you know if i you know if you're a michigan fan you're you're throwing up after that now where i was going to say though is. I don't know who you hire who you are. Convinced your mission of your michigan Booster a big michigan fan. That's gonna do a better job than what you have were. They say he's a top twenty you know. We're in the top twenty every year. We're optimistic but they can't get it done. And when these games. I mean you look at matt campbell from iowa state. Who's an ohio guy did really. Well the mac is done a really nice job at iowa state but it's you know again the threshold. What jim harbaugh expectations are. I mean you gotta get a surefire thing. And i don't know if those guys out there. Are you going to try to war. Bob stoops retirement. And he's not gonna. I don't think gonna do that. I just don't know who they look at and say. Yeah i can see this guy coming in here and tear it up. And and and you not getting the best of ohio state and flipping this thing. Upside down is the wolverines have been really you know underwhelming in the secondary and giving up too many big plays and it's been a lot of the same story for the last couple of years in these games. He's matchups until they figure that out. Let me look. They have them enough talent where i think they could still have a very good year. I don't think it's like they're all of a sudden go so three and seven but they better get better in a big hurry because that performance if they show up like they did on saturday everybody else is going to look at it in the big ten and try to do a similar to the spartans did and they're going to be some battles like superman. Tell us on new book flip. This'll terrip two thousand nine hundred and lsu tigers coming out give a synopsis of it in about thirty seconds so it it really is a story about the head coach and lsu experienced the highest of high of the national championship coach. But he's also probably more so than any coach in football has experienced the lowest of the lows not just from a spectacular flameout as the head coach at ole miss earlier in his career but when he was on jimmy johnson staff at miami and they were winning championships and had great players. His life spiraled out of control. he was. He's been battling addiction for a long time now. Twenty years sober and all those lessons he learned in the recovery process. I think he is. I do apply them to his life. Not just like as a coach but as a as a man as a father. And i think that's really the the the message and flip the script and obviously turned him from a guy. A lot of people mocked doubted into a national title. Lsu last year all right. Sounds like a great re flip. The script lessons learned on the road to a championship. By bruce feldman bruce.

oh very well pronounced a very slow cadence did you notice that i mean it was clear as day the living in minnesota good minnesota boy i we look for different a time yeah we look for very different things in our children book reading you're looking for like diction i'd be looking for animation so he's not a fit for the animation site exactly sorry what about bedtime stories yeah there you go children children than putting him to sleep you're welcome kyle retirement forget how new app kyle rudolph sleep you don't get on that call map welcome in thursday september twenty six fantasy football podcast that's what it is boom kick around the show today starts at the week fantasy work yes ask news some mailbag if we have time quick question of the day who's the hardest player for you to rank in week four right now that's easy for me it's wayne goldman because as we don't know exactly what he's going to be there's so many things lined up perfectly right he's at home they're favored he's the only guy in town with any kind of talent the opportunity is so much more valuable than talent at the running back position all that being said it's a bad offense it is not as it was not bad last week sure i know that they they scorch the earth last week with the rookie sensation yes daniel joe yes but i have a hard time believing in common you know he's still right now my rankings he's a very stable asset we're one of our leagues twenty five on our consensus rankings so but he's difficult i think he's difficult because i don't know what kind of dependency agency the team's going to have on him that's that's part of the question for me running a ton of routes last week one target or whatever it was right but we also so-far haven't seen them at anybody i mean alive japan's gonna be the full back there wayne goldman's there they've worked out some guys like zags inner no jay ajayi the insights so right now i think twenty five i feel good with twenty five don't you feel like that's that's probably i think you can easily produce that he could he could i'm going to go with robert woods is fair i think robert woods is a difficult player to rank right now i don't think robert woods the players any different and then what he was last year i do think that it's very normal for players like brandin cooks who are now in year a to sean mcvay and cooper cup who is an up and coming superstar in in the league i think it's possible for those players to take a step up and and that could that could mean the robbers words maybe as a little bit different than than what we've had in years past i think he's still gonna have his days i think he's still going to have his games but but maybe you know three weeks maybe we're looking at this team a little bit less like you know one a one b one c and a little bit more defined so he's a little bit difficult for me to know what is upside is right now yeah and mine is very similar to that mine is the heart the player was hard for me to rank it sammy watkins it's the lizard king oh oh he's been cold blooded for your fancy that's the past couple of weeks he came out he was an absolute sensation a week winning player and week one and the opportunity was there with tyreek hill going to miss time and yet the chiefs drives are averaging two snaps per offensive dr because nicole hardman into markets robinson keep taking forty yard bombs to the house giving me waterworks ruining everything for people who who have sammy watkins but the matchup is delightful against the detroit lions so i like he should still top five live is still in the range of outcomes but he's been like in the forties yeah walk ins was number one week one and then he was in the forties week two and three whereas damarcus robinson yeah who was like wide receiver hundred something week one he was the wide receiver one in week two and then he followed that up being in the water to twenty nine here like who who's more valuable here but are you still usually and pat mahomes breaks all the usually statement he does still usually want the guy who's getting the most targets and that is still walk ins you see a little bit of the same impact that you know the not marching the ball down the field pass bypasses impacted travis kelsey too so oh not that he's been bad but just right you know if you're not methodically moving down the field with your your best possession guy which sammy watkins i think we'd agree with that you and your best ask possession tight end just a product of those big plays like you said and then they get big leads nobody's kind of keeping up with them we really need these defenses to be better her so that travis calcium sammy watkins can score the other offenses this is michael hartmann owner i disagree with you in just one of the other offenses to be better that's what it is come on matthew stafford yeah i like him a lot this week all right hey we are giving away another signed jersey from pristine auction we love of doing this i think last month we gave away alvin kamara signed jersey you can go to foot clan giveaway dot com inter free we're giving away a signed saquon barkley arkley jersey papa josh thought this was the opportunity that we needed to go acquire and give away a saquon barkley jersey to be fair you'll i have it forever that's true he will not be out for us out what you can you can dry your fantasy tears with a signed saquon barkley i don't recommended commended the name might smudge well we're giving one away nevertheless clang giveaway dot com the blitz blitz our weekly next letter is wayne golden next up for giveaways yeah probably less lasting value there but the bullets are our weekly newsletter with the five biggest stories and fantasy comes out today number one on that list as melvin gord so got some news news and notes from around the league presented by sleeper melvin gordon will report through the los angeles chargers today he will not play in week for the whole doubt is over we talked a lot about the implications of that yesterday but now we have some actual news that attack happening this is awesome i mean this is look there's some people some people out there i've got i've got you know in our listener league i have often and i don't have melvin gordon's so obviously less awesome for me there but in general this is fantastic you know he's one of the best running backs one of the most valuable fantasy assets we don't don't wanna see him sitting out the whole year or ten weeks you know those people who drafted melvin gordon earlier are are somewhat being rewarded i mean if you told me that he was only gonna miss four games and then come back i would've drafted melvin gordon yes pretty high yeah if you had no idea you had no idea what was going to happen with him you at some point he was going to come back because it was slightly different than levian bell but we were led to believe from very high up new news sources last year like okay this is a weak levy on belt comes back so you it was just a risk that i think it was still the right thing to to avoid him in those early rounds now if you use took your scratcher sometimes you win when melvin gordon people drafters are looking like that right now we were able all too and a lot of leagues there were people that draw melvin gordon actor did well he wasn't to be seen anywhere you know gordon was out there so we picked him up in the sleeper bowl leaked league's somebody dropped him in super bowl and had him on our bench and so very excited to get back there is going to be a press conference this afternoon with head coach anthony land and from in rappaport he has shown up he's there also update on our sleeper bowl league we did beat juju smith's yeah take that do i thank thank you for your long touchdown we thanked him in the chat right after he scored it was fun ninja your next all right is that this week that we're playing ninja this week all right well he's he's distracted right now that's right he's man singer dallas morning news reporting amari cooper received a an MRI on wednesday reportedly precautionary not a good thing i mean i don't wanna precautionary MRI doesn't say good things about whatever i'm getting the ion you don't get a precautionary mirai when you're one was just like oh you're scheduled for a wednesday all right i was thinking about again one justin k come just a cautionary when is it a difference instead of a precautionary yeah is a step one then you go cautionary then regular MRI i think this is a cautionary MRI maybe that precautionary would be i'm fine i just want one that's free recall i don't think that we're analyzing the language perfectly but but i i've chosen to yeah nonetheless regardless keep an eye out it's ankle you wanted this is not this this is the other foot this is a different below the shin injury than he was dealing with the beginning of the season all right mike tomlin is optimistic vance mcdonald will play in week four against the bengals i'm not playing them i think you might not have a choice i mean there are there are situations where you need a tight end when are you more off of him because of mason rudolph or a you off of him because i'm off of him because of the injury optimistic okay maybe if this was a sunday morning gay but optimistic that your tight end is gonna play on monday night i i i'm out man that's fair where i i totally get that fantasy football you could be very wrong advanced with donald goes and catches two touchdowns and you feel like crap but my process would would have me about i for i mean what about putting i've heard on your on your bench is a as as your pivot move is pretty crappy pivot right i mean would you go further use alma yeah i i don't know maybe maybe we just steer clear and you make other plants yeah that's probably how i would approach it we do have starts to the week today so we'll talk through some tight ends that we do like and get into some different names in the fantasy forecast orcas as we preview the week four games quick pack practice report update damian williams with the knee didn't practice t. y. hilton mike williams didn't practice chris godwin with a hip injury this was a surprise didn't practice he's listed as day-to-day also was not spotted on thursdays practice as of this recording rashad penny didn't practice that one's interesting we'll see what happens today if he doesn't show up today than you can reason that he's not quite rebounding as quickly as head coach pete carroll that was a devastating walk through way you can't walk too fast asked on those mike you ever done power walking i've never done power walking is one of my proudest accomplishments stupid have you have you have not power walk ooh i've i've done power walking my day now that's different than just walking fast mike of course it's okay it's different because it's exercise sometimes i've really got to go to the

JJ betting on games yeah that's what happened yesterday it was like if your if if your fantasy season goes wrong you're a looter in the streets now someone mispronounces your name you're allowed to well that's that's the way it came out i don't know if you've heard this but it's actually pete rose may you disagree with you two teams on by this week the forty niners in jets if you play them zero points coming your way so don't thursday night football to sean jackson officially out alshon jeffery officially in packers eagles we previewed the game yesterday if you wanna listen to that thursday night preview but i'm excited for that is thursday night game that i'm i'm primed for if the packers can go to foreign a- all right let's start with the weekly matchups here the panthers at one and to take on the texans there too and won this game has a forty seven point over under the texans or four and a half off point favorites kyle allen v shawn watson we have watson as our quarterback to on the weak consistency are on our consensus ranking so watson's obviously in kyle alan the question that people have as fantasy owners fantasy quarterback streamers was last last week fluke i will say it was not a fluke carl is surrounded by incredible talent at every skill position that he needs to be successful fantasy quarterback in real life quarterback how ever definitely inflated by the defense of the arizona cardinals allen i'm not looking to play him in one quarterback leagues but if you're in a two quarterback and you scooped him up i i think he's a fine in a super flex and i i would want one one more i would scoop up for sure if you're a super flex handles quarterback already gun if you would have but i i'm not gonna start him i think the fact that you come come out against the arizona cardinals who don't have any DB's patrick peterson suspended robert alpha was gone going to texans now with the game of film the watch i i would i would want a week off but your point is well taken the weapons are great between greg olsen DJ more curtis samuel christian mccaffrey this is the reason and i loved cam before the season few healthy he'd be balling out this was almost my answer for the most difficult players to rank this week would not kyle DJ more and courtesy because of allen sure it makes sense kyle and did have we've seen a couple of games from him in the pros it was against new orleans the end of last year three touchdowns had had a nice game i i look at kyle very similar to how i would try to rank daniel daniel jones and like you said last week they had a pretty easy match up you might say the texans are an easy match up to fantasy quarterback so far this year you're twenty seventh in the league in points given up so it's just depends on the options you have we haven't cuba nineteen by consensus ranking so if you have somebody that's a better option you go there carlos high duke johnson we already know on the carolina side christian mccaffrey is going to ball out he does it most every week and i would start him now he only played ninety two percents naps last week wow e they gave him they gave him a breather he had played every single snap on the season up till last week take a dude's cardio's insane that dude's everything is in fair point he's a player with a lot of natural talent that is taking it to the next level by working working his butt off year in year out and leveling up carlos hyde duke johnson we said we sat on the show yesterday these guys are just players you you just don't really want to play them right i mean this is a it's a tough situation to be able to count on them if you have to pick one carlos carlos high just from a reliability standpoint i think duke johnson is you can drop him he make we're on roster carlos i don't blame people if they if they they don't wanna play him but he's still a bench player to me with bi weeks coming up i didn't do johnson i mean i'd rather have chris thompson than do john oh oh one hundred percents far more explosive plus and we've seen more over time from him and they they utilize the pass catching running back in washington whereas john watson doesn't you know that's just not what he is used to doing did have a season high five targets last week do johnson did curious if this team starts to give him more opportunities that they don't nothing hide is efficient enough DJ more curtis samuel you said they're hard to rank this week we have them at the kind of rb are wide receiver three range both playable both playable deandre hopkins obviously out there you know will fuller he's also difficult to rank because he we know what he he can do and it's not that he's off the field i mean he's week one ninety seven percents of snaps week to ninety one week three ninety seven percents snaps out there all the time stills is hurting him yes that's that's a fair point that they have another speedster that they can go to still had had you know a pretty nice game last week we'll fuller just has it's not hit yet and when you're he's okay to throw out there as a flex play as as that that nitro nitro button so to speak for your for your starting roster but if it's really unfortunate that through the first three weeks we're just we're not seeing the big you're not seeing the big play that you had hoped when you drafted him and we know that kiki is kind of working himself back in he's sitting behind stills right now the rotation but he did get out there a little bit last week you wonder if that starts to even further muddy the kind of wide receiver coup landscape for those guys and then tight in wise thoughts on greg olsen having another solid week greg olsen is he's a weekly play at this point to know that the matchup technically technically through three weeks is not great the with the texans giving appoints the tight end position but in this landscape of tight end greg olsen gets targets and has upside every single single yeah you start them but you're not gonna get anything like what you've got a no certainly not think it's going to be an interesting game i think kyle kyle alum will be able to keep up against the texans jackson's defense the way that they're playing this year panthers have the fastest pace of play in the NFL now after last week so that's just good for for the fantasy option yeah now who would you rather have between DJ more curtis samuel russell season let's see it's still more yeah i would lean DJ more as well but added but they haven't really separated more explosive plays for more thus far more explosive i it it was just one of those things weird where he only got targets it's last week with kyle and see wonder of is switches with with him in there all right the cleveland browns at one and to travel to baltimore take on the ravens at two and one interesting fact here the games a forty five and a half point over under so if you look at the implied point totals the browns right nineteen and a half points points the ravens are at twenty six and a half that's what baguettes expects from this game ravens are six now point favorites the browns of yet to hit their team implied total this season that is a product of an offense that is over hyped yeah clearly over the expectations are have been much higher ending in in this game being six and a half point dogs were starting to get closer to what we're actually seeing baker and lamar what do you do here kamar lamar's automatically match home i'm not playing baker against the ravens no that would not be a wise decision no in two thousand eighteen he had a touchdown us john every two point seven pass attempts in the red zone this year twenty touchdowns zero or i'm sorry that was last year twenty touchdowns zero interceptions this year in the red zone it's been trashed three or fourteen that's how the game ended last week so we needed this i think we're we're all saying the same thing we need to see more from baker before he becomes the streaming option in in any capacity nick chubb volume is is is supporting nick through disease yup and he got he was of receiving those targets this past week seven targets i don't expect seven to keep up but nick chevy's out there he's going to get a ton of volume william unfortunately this matchup sucks he's been in rb two or better all three weeks i think the volumes great you're you're obviously going to play job you should mark ingram you you obviously playing mark ingram but bigger question fancy owners probably wanna know when they think about selling high is this going to be the mark ingram we get throughout the season when you look at the schedule will he did what he needed to do but it was miami arizona kansas city it's going to get harder for mark ingram not easier and he's been one of the most efficient mission runners as well touchdown to carry ratio is his touchdown to carry ratio is is absolutely out of control he's carried the ball forty three times and he has five rushing touchdown touchdown now he has cleveland pittsburgh cincinnati seattle on the docket i don't those don't intimidate me to the point where i'm thinking it's going to change dramatically at home against cleveland and pittsburgh pittsburgh cincinnati seattle are pretty nice matchup so they are and what you've seen is we've talked about this over the years is that a mobile rushing quarterback oftentimes helps the running game and you see it you see why happens lamar run so much the defenders are always looking to see if he's handing the ball off off or keeping it and a pause for a second and that helps mark ingram i think marketing is going to continue to be a great weekly play for the next half of the season but he you know he's not getting three touchdowns like he did last week four you're going with ours back home and landry you you obviously can play back home i think probably sit landry and this matchup he's more in the i don't know he's he's a bench player i don't blame you if you wanna hang onto him and see what happens if this offense gets going because he's very talented he's at seven targets seven targets nine targets jarvis landry is the perfect example of fantasy not matching the NFL because jarvis landry is a really freaking good wide receiver as fund eggs but they the opportunity is i will for for the fantasy points that we need jarvis landry can be a great fantasy player when he's getting targets like you did in miami but he's not getting those targets but he's he has a bench for me or if if you're playing a my expectations are low end wide receiver three best so one of the things that i'm doing in my fantasy leagues is targeting markey's brown everywhere yes i've been trying to acquire him he's got twenty six percent target share we haven't missed the wide receiver over twenty one in this matchup i think he finishes inside the top twenty on the over the course of the year and i think as it becomes rougher for mark ingram in some of these these other matchups that aren't quite the cakewalk said he's had it's only gonna benefit markets brown who seeing such a significant amount of targets he gives you everything you want you got a high i target here you got a young player with explosive play ability so he can win you a week with one to sean jackson style play and he's the favourite of lamar jackson so i'm actually i went out and i offered lots of different players from archies brown not everybody not many people budging but i still would be targeting my leagues what do you guys think about hollywood one hundred percent i agree with this like this is the this is your perfect opportunity to buy low and i think it might be your last one too and it's not really early that is buying low but you may be able to convince the person who has hollywood brown to to trade them away because he only had two receptions for forty nine yards but he had nine nine targets lamar jackson's accuracy it will be suspect from time to time use you saw that this past week with lamar than that that game against miami that's not hula march is going to be weakened and week out but hollywood brown i think it has become a very high end fantasy option that the target's share to me i'm his has been very very surprising his ability is not the target share is i think he just speaks soon i'm a big john harbaugh fan and i think it speaks to a well run team when you take you know you have a team concern about wide receivers having value in this offense then you draft a wider even the first round and then you put them in a position to succeed and then the team builds around that i just we don't always see that right you see you have a lot of talented not players that just have limited opportunities to showcase themselves hollywood just ended up in a great position and it's it's not just our by it's it's also greg roman me me no doubt that was the perfect hire to coach up lamar jackson and you know like when you go back and you realize what has happened perhaps we all should have been higher on on hollywood brown because like sammy watkins with tyrod taylor his his big monster year we were us over thousand thousand and nine touchdowns and thirteen games that was tyrod and greg roman yeah in hollywood is an incredible player there's a reason he was a first round draft pick while injured third and being miniature sized yeah because he's lightning mark andrews he's are tight end four on the week we're buying into a bounceback game for mark andrews this one yeah yeah i mean you monitor the injury injury could be a part of the problem last week and this week but in a tight end landscape how do you not start mark andrews and i and i watched watched i watched a lot of those snaps last week from our andrews i can tell you it wasn't all the injury problems it was a lot of inaccuracy from lamar jackson he was open he had opportunities ball was thrown behind him i think it's brighter this week if lamarcus get him the rock chiefs at three and take on the lion's who are also undefeated undefeated two oh and one they are they should be three they really should have not tied that arizona friend of the show item left go tweeted this morning how happy is for buffalo bills fans in the lions fans 'cause these long suffering organizations and fan bases and i think both of their early seasons since success is real you know they're pretty good teams and the lions are going to lose this week in fact the question is by how much right now sheets are only favored by six and a half points i would i would bet on the chiefs you like the chiefs here they are six point fares the game has a spectacular fifty four and a half point over under puts the chiefs at thirty points the lions at twenty four it is always difficult to know win you can turn to matthew stafford as a quarterback streamer yep are you wearing and the snapback hat this week is matthew stafford on your list of streaming candidate not only am i wearing it i am matthew stafford you're also i will die i'm turning it around like it will be a backwards facing cap in in honor of matthew stafford i like him a lot this week he he he should have come through this last week against the eagles but we had TJ drop in letting everybody down and i think that he's in a perv he's he's back at home he's in the dome i love staffer this week you know the chiefs of have really been torched by titans and i know people are afraid frade of TJ robinson the right the hawks strap since week one you you paid up you've got them you've been super disappointed really hard to play him after the last couple of weeks i think he's a fine play this week they match up at home against kansas city they're going to need to throw the ball kansas the city has not done well tight ends this is a a hawkins this is a hockey league's week oh yeah i i tend to agree with you i think that he he would be a candidate for you know a shot in the arm star of the week type of guy i don't know if either of you guys picked him this week but he's in that category patrick mahomes on pace for for six thousand passing yards so because of that fact alone i will go ahead and dr seuss my golden start in this week for what it's worth the lions by way giving up thirty two and a half points per game to the wide receiver position as twenty second in the league we gotta feel good about walk ins robinson hardiman if you're starting them up there are tasked patrick mahomes and maybe even more so with damian williams on on the shelf right now leshan mccoy banged banged up daryl williams shirt i think they're williams is a great play if those two guys out but that doesn't mean that this team doesn't put more on the back of a home i can i would expect expect shawn mccoy to play they're saying that the ankle injury is minor he had the ankle injury last week still played had a great game he was not the ah the workhorse he got the touchdowns had the better fantasy game but you're right it still last week it was their williams who had more opportunity so this week i think you could start daryl williams amazon mccoy i i agree if assuming that damian williams is not yet ready to suit up kerryon johnson it's in is our rb twelve on our consensus rankings and you can see all of our rankings us starts it starts it tool at the fancy footballers dot com on the website but carry on ah jackson you like him this week yeah i love him we'll talk about him a little bit later really obviously act to the well i'm a big carry on active wow this matchup is is very good for him i think you'll be fine kindergarten marvin jones you still lean golic as way in this decision would you start both players because of the match open the over-under i would golladay is he's locked in is the one marvin jones had the big game over a hundred and a touchdown this past week and the and the target share for marvin jones this has been going up the last two weeks so i think he can play jones it would be it would be difficult for me to not play marvin jones in this matchup at home against kansas city where you know the implied team total for the lions it's still pretty good at twenty four you know he's he's one of those when you're look at a flex play i always want my flex play to be able to have a monster game and marvin jones could go out there and completely ball out like he did last week all right the patriots at three zero take on the bills at three and all those games a forty two and a half point over under i think we're expecting a much more defensive struggle in this game patriots with a twenty four point implied point total seven point favorites and the bills are at seventeen points tom brady v josh allen now jason you're the highest on josh allen on the week he's the QB nine on the season this is a difficult match at the pay the patriots are i would say the best defense in football all statistically they've had very easy matchups but they did what they needed to do they're literally giving up the seems like a typo this has to be a typo typo but it's not five point nine points to the quarterback tend to the running back seventeen to all wide receivers total in a game which is number one and in three to the tight end position is another way of saying this they're giving nothing up to anybody so are the bills at three you know with the success they've had are they the team that's it's going to be able to finally challenge new england's defense maybe some of the run pass ability of josh allen can keep them on their heels what do you think i don't think they're going to be able to challenge much i i've i've got josh allen higher in the rankings but he's still not a he's still not a star he's not a tall guy for me you look at last year here when he came back the second half of the year and was dominant josh allen was running the ball like crazy he played new england and back then it granted it was on the road two hundred seventeen yards one touchdown turnovers only rushed for thirty yards but there's five point seven points on the table jason forum that's that's what the patriots are given up per game five point seven points they lead the league in sacks and interceptions yeah i i i do not believe that the buffalo bills have a good offense of game here here at all but i do think they have got a great defense i'm very interested to see can they slow down this new england offense offers of machine i think they do slow it down i've had a hard time i've been going back and forth on this game you know at the beginning of the week i kinda thought the patriots patriots would come in baum out established themselves at the top of the division i'm starting to bend myself a little bit more towards being a low scoring affair the buffalo bills defense will be primed or at home and the patriots don't have antonio brown anymore they have a banged up julian lennon who did practice but still there there there's a little bit of risk there and when you talk about hey tom brady's gotta move the ball withdrawn gordon philip dorset against his defense which is one of the best football right now i think it could be a little bit of a lower scoring game we did get news just now that devon single terry returned to practice today wow devon single terry frank gore the running back position for the bills michelle james white rex burkhead this game is wild because i'm i'm very excited to watch watch this game very fascinated to see how it plays out and the only player that i'm like okay i'll start this guy it's the this guy coming off and injuries juuling ataman i like i'm not playing sony i'm not playing sony just based off of what has happened already to him in his workload then you add in the matchup is ridiculous josh gordon i'm lowering my expectations against the buffalo bills defense in davis white frank gore becomes far are less appealing for his volume devon single terry is gonna play its crazy that there are so many fantasy relevant players in this game on both sides of the field and i really i really don't wanna play any of them i agree with that i think that you trust vegas is over under in this game and buffalo being at home it means a lot to me divisional match up you know they've competed in the past even in years where buffalo's struggled so you know i don't want to repeat the same reframe that got me in trouble double with the dolphins matchup being a divisional match up at home but the bills are a far better team than the dolphins yeah yeah i am i'm okay with with a sony michelle start if you need to or james white star i'm not bullish but i'm not completely off the way that the the tour all right the the way that mike is the way i'm i'm okay you agreed but short i'm glad for the the inside the way the mike is completely off i still think i think the one place that they can beat the bills is at the running back position and you know you just you just trust brady umbrella check to get the job done chargers at one and to take on the dolphins at owen three chargers and fifteen and a half point favorites forty four point over under they won't don't have melvin gordon back and gosh darn it they won't need them because they're taking on the dolphins so thank you started the weeks permeating through through the the chargers side of the ball austin actor is currently mike and is number one running back on the week by for rankings and projections sion's miami's giving up the most rushing yards in the league a staggering one hundred eighty nine per game possible oh it's possible alright well teams teams are up usually forty two three by the half at so then you run the ball which is why i think obviously if you have where you're going to start him but i actually actually think justin jackson is he got a little bit more work he's been getting work and i think that he is a flex worthy start this week against this dove is because of the match up because of how bad it all it's been i think you could do worse than justin jackson yeah i agree with you i i think he's a flexible player this week he's had a few big runs called back he i think he's looked explosive i think that both players have looked good in the running game you're not starting ending any dolphins at all you're not no please not though but but what about was just kidding you don't even know what name to say okay next to you if i had to play someone what about dan marino yeah you can play dan marino this week for how to play someone would of course be kid you drake doc sure of course and i would love to see it you should try that keenan allen he leads the league in targets receptions receiving yards air yards and target share okay this week he goes up against avian howard who just gave up multiple touchdowns to mario cooper jason pulled up the clip before the the show of giving up on a play you talk about why things start to kind of snowball over the course of a game complain defense when you're down for scores not as fun as when you're in a competitive match ups is even howard's great yes he's he's a phenomenal player he's been good this year because is how do you give it your all know pass which breaks down any cornerback you know you can't cover a guy for fifteen seconds ten seconds skains however long it takes for them to back in the pocket in so you're in a position now where obviously keenan allen's a start i think you're gonna have opportunities outside of keenan allen this week i'm a big mike williams fan yes i know he missed practice on wednesday last week i danced with the devil a little bit with marlin mack who is dealing with practice reports i'm just telling you that if mike williams active i'm he's a big start for me there's a lot of opportunity to go around there travis benjamin banged up and so i think mike williams will have more opportunities this week in a matchup against a team giving up thirty three fancy points per game to the wide receiver and i don't think we're going to begin announced the the only discussion for me here vir- keenan allen it's related to the future we because we know when keenan wynn melva gordon's out keenan allen sees a huge uptick in and opportunities the offense runs through him you've been saying that for week and it's not that keen alan disintegrates goes away by any stretch while melva gordon comes back but but how are you how are you guys feeling what the expectations because you know you just ran through that list i mean that's that's an absolute ridiculous list of accolades accolades for the first three weeks for keenan allen but melvin gordon come back out to you how are you approaching keenan allen he's going to have a monster week this week against against miami and so if you wanted to trade high if he does have another monster week people are going to offer number one wide receiver overall value if you can get back a stud an app you can get back a really quality wide receiver and running back and say like that you have to get multiple peace considering trading keenan it yes but i think keenan allen dips a little bit as the season goes along but he's still going to be good he's still going to be a top twelve guy all right let's go to the raiders colts match up the raiders at one and two the colts and won the games in indianapolis they're seven point favorites it's forty five and a half point over under derek carr to cubby set a lot of people in kobe this week are you one of them yup i i think he was a great streaming option last week i think he's an even better streaming option this week jacoby percent matthew stafford who do you i would go stafford effort for the upside of a of a shootout this game does not have the recipe of shootout if the colts get up they will continue to run the ball because they can and i think they will in this game jacoby percents just been very efficient two touchdowns week one three touchdowns week to two touchdowns week three a lot of those t. y. hilton though and if TY hilton's out in this game that definitely changed your expectation for jacoby were set if t y was not there i would look to pivot off of brazil as a streamer all right another player that i'm targeting actually both of these players at running back i'm targeting in a lot of leagues i think they're both i think they're both very interesting trade targets josh jacobs right now he's only got one reception on the season he would he took four IV bags in the middle of one game where people were worried about jenin rashard being out there he's he's their future at the position i think it's better for him over the duration of the year so i'm targeting him now in this game we have ranked as the rb nineteen on the road so oh little bit of risk in this specific matchup but the colts defense is giving up twenty four and a half points to the running back position and there there should be opportunity for him to run and then marlin mac i've got him rb seven this week he's got the most carries in the NFL twenty rushing attempts for game and i still view him as a buy low oh player because i think when you headed into the season sands andrew luck experts say expectations have changed for him and less established some of the other bigger names out there so i actually think you can acquire marlin mac in a lot of leagues slightly below his true value which i think will sustain throughout the year what do you guys think about marlon this week and over the course of this i i try to trade for him and the listener league offered sammy watkins and with shawn mccoy was this quickly turned down on that but i i agree with you any that the the colts offense marla mac is so incredibly important britain to this offense and he's been good he's not gonna go away barring injury he's got a little bit of injury risk because of the history of missing aims but in the meantime they're offensive line is great their head coach is super smart he's a talented player all right mike what do you think of tyrel williams this week you're you're hoping for a touchdown the colts defense has been holding up very well against wide receivers at least fantasy wise he's he's tyrone williams i see him he's pretty close to a weekly wide receiver to play because it's him and darren i am the walrus as the two guys they brings you look tyrone williams is safe but he's more of a wide receiver three this week dare waller has a thirty thirty point two percent target share like going up this week that is be nanna yeah actually i actually disagree with that i think is going down this week i don't think there's going to sustain this i think teams are going to start paying attention to him because they don't have as many other options they just released ryan we've not done it already well because there's been three games and he you know he had the monster thirteen reception game last week and they were meaningless reception so if you think the game's going to be a blow out maybe get more meaningless receptions options from darren waller i don't i think you're gonna see a lot more hunter renfrew over the course of this year is a lot to me and my fantasy team i do holtz care about darren aaron waller i think they've seen waller catch a bunch of passes that are all worthless colts play defense they stopped the big plays you know they're funneling everything now go ahead beat us in front of us you're not going over the top and that's that's bad for tyrel williams and good for darren waller they're going to be like sure can continue to be worthless a hundred times a game in reality but it will be a mosser famous agape now you could you could be right i mean if teams don't care that he's soaking up the you know run through the situation i think over the course of the season we've also seen the product of a limited josh jacobs and josh jacobs not using the passing game yet they that should take away some of it and like i said hunter renfro they released ryan grant they're going to start integrating him and he's an underneath type of player to what i'm saying is derek carr will find a way to be meaningless in the shallow range to a couple of other players as well right now during waller's just at an incredible pace is on on on pace for one hundred thirty eight catches his it's a thirty percent target share he's just blown up my friend right it's not gonna it's not gonna stay this level i agree with that but i do think the matchup i like this week eric ibran we have them as the tight end twelve on the year are you comfortable with ibran if you're a kettle owner yup and then you've got other options like OJ howard TJ hopkinson how would you order ibran howard and hopkinson i i need to know what what is the health of TY l. a. a scare that can make a difference it's it's a little bit of a spoiler here but we're going to get into it and the next minute or two but right now i have eric brown as is my started the week at the tight end position but this is based off of a UI hiltons current participation felton's out the absolutely i'm i'm in on eric broncos the matchup is fine against the oakland raiders so that that's what i'm looking for for abraham yeah the raiders gave up twenty any fancy points to mr travis kelsey on the chiefs in week two last week against minnesota for seventy one against the tight end it makes me happy big serve to make me happy to hear you say that mike buffalo i saw you picked him up to play i did i did i did pivot back to ibran for my star in place of george kill so and makes me happy thank you thank you for thinking of i would still prefer hopkinson over e bron but by the slightest margin if i if i could choose between those two guys i like the upside of i would even with even with hilton out to me hilton coming out is not a benefit to run a touchdown scoring guy and helton's scored four times on the year that should be a benefit to him but my point is hilton's been hilton helps move the ball helps give have more opportunities so sure you could argue it either way but i don't i don't see that is a major booth that only benefits hebron all right it starts time starts of the week all right it's week four we've got some starts of the week for are you all of our rankings available at the fantasy footballers dot com start sit tool we update our rankings multiple times every single day based on the news information information weather reports all that stuff jason is smirking yeah i'm just working at who i've got in for tight end oh my god this did someone else right that in or is that legitimate i wrote that in all right okay what would running at the tight end position we we you need is not start here so we can give him time to think about this this is you're not you're you're missing the parentheses this is i i have put in my start of the week for next week in titan no no i am i am in hard rule right now handing handing or i'm i'm handing it out on the fantasy football podcast i am allowing your start of the week of will d'isly okay mic you play that all wrong what you you said you started the week as wheel disney he's not in the dock he could have been your guy right then that's jason tried to preempt a if you don't understand what's going on we have a show doc every week last last week jason decided moments after you know that he was gonna put will disney and really early make staked a claim because if you got him in the show dot they're your guy you have essentially a lot of course lifted you've it's like if you take a cookie and you look at it to your cookie and the reason i prevent star of the week at the end positions will not in the dock so was your t started the week mike it's actually it's in there right now so directly okay let's do this let's do this i'm fine with that and anyways my rule was i was going to be you can't russell the doctor put whoever's playing arizona that's that's what i was doing gene i had tyler i for in for week five solely because he plays is there is on in week five mike you're gonna say the rule is you have to wait until the week four show is over to put week five strong point too i know jason will cheat yeah always always always sure sure to the detriment of all but let's start let's go tied in this kick off the start of the week at the tight end position i have will diz lead i already i know i know i'm going off and hooper against tennessee the targets here for us jason hooper his ability in this office that you know just be a reliable target for matt ryan tennessee's actually given up points to the tight end on the air so austin hooper my started the week i i think he has another solid performance for your hooper was going to be who i put until i saw that you already had titans are the most difficult starts the week every week because the reality reality is here's who you here's who you start you start kelsey erz kittle if he's not on by nine zero ingram waller waller mark andrews greg olsen delaney walker and so we don't wanna just constantly be saying those names were looking for someone else so i started the week this week i'm gonna make it TJ hopkinson i'm going to say that this is you you're hesitant to play him based on the last few weeks but if you're watching the game he's still involved he's getting valuable valuable opportunities this is an at home game against kansas city i think i would be willing to start him i just i just liked the narrative that you're you're bringing up about the likelihood of them having to throw to catch up in this game is very very high since every team over the last two years pretty much had to do that against kansas city and so oh he's a valuable pass catching option he's a player that can find space in the vertical passing game and give you a big place so i i like that start of the week and so my real one like like i said it's eric e. braun i think that his target share can go up with TY hilton dealing with injury but even if t y hilton plays there's no guarantee that he makes it through the game he exited last week as well in oakland is one of only seven teams to already allow over two hundred yards to the tight end position so i think iran's in a good spot now those streaming the positions issue so that makes our global yes show started the week are honorary he plays the cardinals start of the week and and and it's also he is better than the other three options nations we brought up dizzily is he's a weekly guy now i think he's moved himself out of a streaming option to me so would you so i think we would all play disney over hawkin over e brown would play disney over hooper yes this week i would yes we're against arizona absolutely and then i you know the neat thing depending on in your perspective whether you're a fan of the seahawks or not is this defense is giving up some points and some yardage and so i think at home in arizona keiler is gonna get enough done against tim russell is my star that we get the quarterback position because russell is gonna have to throw the football arizona's defense the low hanging fruit here but russell will follow a big performance last last week russell's my start for this week for me it's philip rivers i know he's traveling from the west coast to the east coast for one PM eastern game that's always a little bit hard on those guys but i think that the miami dolphins will be the south that makes it okay philip rivers he's always consistent never has those gargantuan arkansan monster huge performances for fantasy but he does have those weeks where is very simple he can go out there very easily throw for two fifty and three against the miami dolphins if i had him i would start okay i picked him up to start him over carson winston week and in doing so there's the back of my head fear that because miami gives up two hundred yards on the ground if they start this game an actor jackson score the first two three touchdowns i'm teeny bit scared you know sir what we hope from keenan allen and philip rivers doesn't come to fruition but it on paper taper shed and it it shouldn't be because this is like ancient history but like it's in my it's there it's in the back back of my head we had years ago this there the san diego chargers they were going to miami and it was just an miami was not good at this time they were it was like filthy rivers was a smash streaming option at the quarterback position and they win and they got shut out by miami no that's a very different miami dolphins steve but i remember being being one hundred percent confident in rivers against bad miami team and that is traveling across the country yeah i get it takes its toll my star of the wake it's mattie stafford at home against kansas city craziness where we are through week three with the OC daryl bevill but matt stafford is throwing the ball he is the most deep attempts in the league at the quarterback position and that's what you're going to need against the kansas city chiefs to keep pace so i'm gonna i'm streaming stafford it i like it all right let's move to the running back position my running back and wide receiver both bounced back players marooning backs james connor against cincinnati it's not been pretty for james connor james connor honors are very unhappy with what they've received and and now they probably feel like they've been sentenced to suffer with it through the duration of the year because of the quarterback change and where this team is headed but i think this specific game game against cincinnati is just a great match up and i think james connor gets me gets gets you need sure so my running back i started the week this week is carry on johnson kerryon johnson is set up this week he has been non is he has been not as effective as you want not as efficient efficient as you want but he's getting the volume and the opportunities that make it okay he had twenty carries last week he had a touchdown he is the goal line guy and he will be out there in passing situations to and the nice thing is kansas city is gonna need to pass the ball or because of kansas city the lions are going to need to pass the ball this week when you're getting twenty carries and you're playing against the chiefs who are giving up the highest rush success rate in the league it's a really good combination the six most rushing yards per game so i think that you know the talent plus opportunity game script implied point total there's a lot of reasons to say a carry on jobs that could be have a huge week this week when one is faced with raging rapids in river yes yes you need a confidence canoe oh and chris carson confidence canoe that's foresees alliteration is out of control with this star of the week but chris carson against the arizona cardinals get right game there's una cardinals defense often the salve that are running back needs and with rishaad pennies still dealing with his hamstring problem the walkthrough problem going chris carson i don't remember how long ago the words confidence came up on this show it was years the s. a. go but i appreciate it mike and i feel like get in their boat the irony is that this week all three of our sorts of the week happened to me my guys mike james connor chris carson kerryon johnson jason obviously just giving himself a shot in the arm not surprising right i'm giving your guy a confidence canoe you're you're giving my guy a confidence canoe this is a safe space for my guys this week let's go to the wide receiver position i'm gonna go with mike williams i think he has the bounceback against miami amy i think you know we saw every single play go to go to keenan allen last week and he was going to be opportunity for mike williams if he's healthy if he's out there keep an eye on the practice reports but we're in a position now where you need to have some confidence to start you don't mike williams or manual sanders markey's brown there's the flex range wide receiver here i think we expected more from mike williams to begin the year he's dealt with injury but this week i really like him against miami and he's not doc matched up against avian howard who i do believe is a good cornerback who probably won't slow keenan allen down too much but mike williams has the the best opportunity to take a few extra targets for my start of the week wide receiver i am going with their look there's only two wide receivers in the national football league who've had double d targets urging the week yeah i can't take keenan allen too obvious but tyler boyd is the other one double digit targets all three weeks and now he's playing a perfect match up where the deep pittsburgh steelers have been torched by the slot wide receiver this season you give me double digit targets out of the slot against the steelers i'm all about that life tyler boyd started the week i'm going with sterling shepard i'm continuing my alliteration at the start of the week but can get four oh eric run so i actually had three this is sensational moment in my life fellas sterling shepherd my wide really need to change a quarterback at this point all right you give me a name well we'll find we'll find you somebody mike washington they've given up the second most any dimes oh good i could be i mean i'm starting earned his wide receiver washington giving the second most points fantasy points to wide receivers and that is barely second because they are right behind the giants there could be a lot of points points going up in this giants washington matchup grease especially to the wo- the wide receiver position and sterling shepard was he was the man for danny dance we got one more week of that before going take comes back and we have a re shuffling were period where we're gonna have to see who emerges as as the number one wide receiver but until oh then sterling separate brooks's writing and marcus mariota get him bring it up it's the only one i would rather die well now here that's that's surprising because generally you will go with the joke over you know there there is no global death there's no joking ever allowed when it comes to marcus mariota one let me throw this out they're not the same letter but certainly alliteration you could still go with kirk cousins kurt it cousins you do have to obviously spell it with a k. the last name with a k. if you do that that's why he'd be okay hey with that one mortal combat style corinne yeah one more very important segment today jason jason moore's ironclad locked and loaded one hundred percent guaranteed boom boom kicker of the week last week was

Mahomes Scares KC To The Core, Chiefs Still Victorious
"Hi It's Jamie Progressive's employee of the month two months in a row leave a message at the Hi Jamie hit me Jamie I just had a new idea for our song about the name your price tool so when it's like tell us what you want to pay hey hey hey trombone goes Blah Blah Blah and you say we'll help you find coverage options to fit your budget then we just all do finger snaps while a choir goes sports how are we doing chiefs kingdom hey look we won the game against Denver next week really could have been prevented dislocated kneecap they put back in place right on the field watching what was happening on the field absolutely and I was watching a lot of the media responses and a lot of people immediately upset with him for putting him in that position and thefourthway Goff and take another week to heal oh you're going to get another week of healing after that at then you can get weaker or two of Welcome to Kingdom Radio this Richard Smith Long my co host and senior NFL analyst Chris Chavez and like I just said that she three weeks is best case scenario reach absolutely that's what I'm aiming for but on the flip side of that so if if he's opera three weeks luckily there's no ligament damage and from the MRI's the results say that haunt could be back in three weeks after yesterday's game yes so let's hop right into that because I'm sure achieves kingdom is well aware of again our finance their research kingdom radio issues and you will find us welcome to the Kingdom one that AFC divisional out against the Denver broncos thirty six but there's some big news that we're going to get to here to here in a second how we doing this evening I'm doing good I just don't know I can fill more somber about a huge win Z. perfectly honest I thought that it was his ankle that had gotten hurt and added been his ankle I could understand the frustration but mahomes he was what ended up getting her kept on Andy Reid that data side I think that the three you know the first thing that went through my mind is you know it's it's over our season is done you know just to see his reaction him not getting up solidifies regard player at them cast box and all third party applications checks out facebook platforms such as of date and Arrowhead and if about to say but we're GonNa talk about the extent of the Patrick mahomes injury the came late in the first quarter on a quarterback Chris take off a little bit on that because I'm sure you know like you and I everybody in the sports world was holding their breath for quite some time and I also WanNa touch base on when he got up of the the TV cameras Contests and they showed it after attorney Herman Ankle all take a concussion and there's no reason put him in a situation where he did end up getting damaged right now with Patrick Mahomes I will say Andy Re don't ever quarterback sneak pull a quarterback sneak with Patrick mahomes again just just give it to the sauce practice on the need to make sure that feels good and then come back and be ready for the second half of the season Yes hey I don't know about you but I want to wrap it in bubble wrap well absolutely I mean the he potentially shown even against you know one of our our worst divisional rivals Zeno but still somber moment I don't right and I agree with you I thought it wasn't ankle as well because it looked like his ankle was turned sideways and you know they did not look very good there at the beginning that this was a freak play a three accident but look so as last week when our offensive lineman stepped on his his ankle the facts but a lot of the Denver defense came over and gave the little touch respect to Mahomes and and I will say that I think I don't know about you but I felt better when mahomes actually walked off the field once he that was very touching move on their part huge props out to the Broncos in that respect yes and I seen that as well and I was extremely scared at that moment yeah and you look a look on his face and his eyes and you could tell something was wrong there's really no need to put my home's in a situation where now granted if the injuries over the overtime hard the ever happened on Q. V. sneaks but there's no reason to put Mahomes the in a position to participant hurt hurt his shoulder pretty much all of them every week the week before he had his role ankle rolled over they've all been freak accidents and and this is one of those things getting hurt we can we can out and I've said you know myself on previous episodes that we need to sit him and nobody's been a fan of that which from the like this now being a thing anymore and and I just want Patrick Mahomes to sit this out he'll the right way off the field was it was really scary and I'm I'm fortunate we are fortunate to to really have the scenario that we have and I'll have to say I I don't want to say that I was surprised by that but I was moved by that gesture but that's why I love the AFC west you know that's the kind of class the A prolific player go through all these scenarios and situations and you know we're one freak accident away drop that perfect pat I couldn't it couldn't have been a better touch pass to tyreek hill for that fifty seven yard touchdown we are long healthy Patrick mahomes could do hey it's we're at a point where I feel like you know he's offense is GonNa look very different with him back there however as we saw two tyreek hill and on the medical staff in the NFL at least top three I would say so he'll be well well taken care of but I don't know about don't rush back because I still feel like we're GONNA get scenario to win a couple of these games while he's gone and understand he's our MVP but man he's he's taken more of a beating than anybody and it's and it's hard to watch such a this kid has astronomical that you want reprimand bubble wrap just that You WanNa see what a biggest test right there without a Patrick Mahomes we need Sammy Watkins back for that game look the could be the catalyst to really push our defense to truly step up and which is exactly what we need nothing to find the words to to say you know the magnitude of of the I don't even know the right word more here in just a little bit because I really want to focus on on mahomes right this second but I love the play where Maho where more stepped up in the pocket and it's very different we're going to be lying relying a lot on running game I do like I love the play you know we'll just touch base on on on the field because that's the guy who can who can ultimately take us pass New England and get the Super Bowl victory that we want so I also it would come back for these India go chargers and then we get a bye week realistically even if he is back threes takes did you give it to Anthony Sherman he'll pound it in the end zone against the sausage give it to Damien Williams let your big bags handle that Outta leapfrog on that I think that this could be potentially the catalyst that this injury as well as his game but he did look okay you know the stats here he threw for what one hundred seventeen yards and that's not bad for stepping in a little pressure on it took a step on it you know after I put it in place and he's like okay well I can walk on this and you know and walked off the field it was a lot worse than a getting tweets from Lebron James Prayers from Lebron James Tweet from Russell Wilson and the list goes on and on and on and there's mad respect ten for nineteen and a touchdown no interceptions after mahomes hat was ten for eleven or seventy six yards and a touchdown do we really are do you think we're okay putting the game and Matt Moore's Hands Look we did win thirty two six and get it is time for his ankle to heal as well so there's going to be a lot of healing here like mahomes needs this time off and I think it's going to help them and more than now back to mahomes ruled real quick will will get back to this you know he did have an MRI and I really you're all that more dangerous because he's GonNa be able to throw a seven yard crossing route to Hartman for this scenario so you know all those prayers help in for Mahomes and look we just need to get him back healthy and get them back he put we'll put up what like twenty one of those points yes and not more shown me more and more each week you know he had a touchdown and he also you know return that punt sixty but what do you think Matt Moore going forward you really think defensive have to look out for him I know that you you know kind of touch base on that here a few minutes ago but against Matt Moore by any means when I say this but when he's not of Patrick Mahomes and he one of his throws he overthrew him so I mean that's good to see that he has that big arm still in that he could still aired out yeah no that was an absolutely beautiful throw and a he definitely showed some some some good throws he made but with the weapons that we have surrounded our quarterback positions with the those weapons are going to make Matt Moore Art got us in a position to to score again and really seal this game this was a fun game to watch outside of of Michael Jordan of football just went out and I'm just happy that it's three weeks I'm stuck still blown away by this on I'm some bad throws last night for a backup who hadn't really had any reps with the start with the starters I think he did pretty good as far as stepping in I think that that was a good message to opposing defenses that we're going to be seeing is watch out for this guy he can still throw it but we're still game was strong tell me tell me what you think about run game because I feel like we rushed more times in this game than we have like the last three games put together and Thompson and on the sideline and get some touches I wanna start to see what this kid can do I think that the game that could and who could potentially go and take another twenty yards and Hartman proved that look Hartman had a great game per catch of twenty four point seven yards but look we got back to the run game me and you talked about this Chris the run the scissors huge I want Patrick mahomes back and I want him back healthy and that's really where it lies I hate to see what had been last night look here's I don't really like his yardage output but he was still able to power over guys d'orleans it'll be interesting to see the type of quarterback that we see stepping son step in and take the snaps we from now against Green Bay yes more we need to have this balance again that's going to help him out it's going to help to open up opposing defenses and it's going to help well you know what happened with Mahomes mahomes he still had a passing touchdown so I mean he got in action at took tyreek Awhile to get going but he's still you know promote Daryl Williams put him in his spot and then you know the player that you just mentioned what was his name again I'm sorry if you if you look at you know what we have here as far as are running game I'm I'm willing to put Damian Williams on the bench if we can dare Williams awesome out of the backfield on those little pitch passes we need to keep feeding him the ball because people don't really look for him Moore's hands and get it into playmakers hands as soon as possible that that definitely has happened about you are but let's see who do we have done for like you said we have we have green bay coming up that's going to be escaping me right now yes put Darwin tops put Darwin Thompson in the third spot I'd be great balance a really kept Denver's defense on their heels because he never really knew what exactly we're going to do shady had of phenomenal the run game Damian Williams I still like what he brings to the passing game you know it's just one of those things I mean it's it's but I I feel that Darwin Thompson showed more than votes the Williams players combined in aw could and should probably happen is against Tennessee I don't see it happening against Green Bay but I think tank good game is where these happened with me doc kingdom all things Kansas City chiefs brought to you by Arrowhead empty joined Chris Richard on iheartradio apple podcast podcast now this game we definitely has a true balance in in our offense attack through the wall or attempted to throw the ball three times we ran the ball twenty seven had will lead the team in receiving yards you know he only had three receptions for seventy four yards and a touchdown with a with another astronomical average you know let's use all of our backs because that's going to be a huge part of our our game plan moving forward until we get Patrick Mahomes Baxter another step as far as roster stuff goes we're probably GONNA end up having to promote collar Shurmur from the practice squad the giants backup quarterback and those those reports those rumors are ridiculous why would you bring in a guy who for the last and we all saw in preseason that D- train has the ability to be the that game changer and Impact I love I love our depth because they can take the top off to if we just go back to the basics and utilize their and and calm down and play unless utilize these backs in every single way we can and like I said just get the ball out of Matt Moore's hands yeah absolutely and just can't take it pick your poison I guess but I don't really I'm not sold on Damian Williams I just I don't know I don't know I've really liked to test this you know Darwin I know that there there were some reports out there were some suggestions rumors that the cheese should go after partaking yards and a touchdown look out I will take The Alex Smith Esq type quarterback to gay manage us into a few wins here the that can be legitimate three head monster for us with no question marks ask to you know I really think Damien Williams is the only question mark in one way but we can go ahead and get back to Matt Moore is kind of a wrap up this thing with Patrick Mahomes even though I'm sure we'll talk about it here again Vince with these wide receivers he doesn't have the timing doesn't have the arm strength and by bringing him in and if we were to let him start also a look it's one of those things we're GonNa roll out with Matt Moore I don't think we go spend a whole bunch of money if I would have said if chase Daniel with the the offensive line is gonNA help to break down those defenses I mean I couldn't agree more it's to keep running the ball grandy was precent I would really like to see what we could potentially do in the regular season I know that Andy Rita said that think is gonna be a new kind of touched on this a little bit in the past and that Moore is GonNa be a great game game manager for us he's going to be an average quarterback that's narrow too I also heard Brock Osweiler and I laughed at that I've heard Colin Kaepernick of laughed at that I've it's backup Matt Moore and Hey who knows we might bring somebody in who's who's throwing the ball around something fierce and we we might get lucky so manning fan although the only thing that I feel like he deserves a hall of fame ballot fours he's the only guy to to be the paper we gave the the threat that that the cheat it is downfield because I think everybody knows that that guy can't throw the down the field anymore chiefs football I think we'll be all right Darwin Thompson look he really could be key aspect if they use him right because they really just need to get the ball out of a happy with that I feel like Darren Williams not being utilized right and I say we drop Damian Williams put him on the bench you know give Darwin Thompson Shot Because game yet let yesterday last night a yet along longest run of twenty two but trueman got curious Damien Williams had nine attention that for a team that's trying to get to the Super Bowl we really don't need to add onto our plate we've got enough drama has yeah absolutely that other quarterback with would not be able to hit the broad side of a barn in our he needs to work on his his blitz pickups but that was one of the reasons why he'd been shady a couple of games ago I feel like that we're going to be okay moving forward without Patrick Mahomes here for a few weeks so the are receiving core I think that we we need to stick with Shurmur but looking at all of the guys that I've heard or seen mentioned the three years house looked atrocious on the field why would we put him in there and makes no sense like we're better off with Matt Moore ten for nineteen one hundred seventeen reason he managed that game and did very well and for having no reps with our first team I mean he he really did great average Travis Kelsey had six receptions for forty four yards with seven point three yards per reception average and democracy yes and and you're right about that so moving forward I feel like we're sticking with Matt Moore to it seems like the safe logical the other well I mean I don't know what your beef is with Eli but I will say I mean I I've never been the super bowl twice so with that being said I'm not gonNA give too much props I don't want I don't want anything to do with but hey I will say it was it was great to get him in the mix because I mean he burnt that guy for touchdown immediately I catch Hartman has touchdown which I'm sure you are Shawn McCoy car to Daryl Williams car to Damian Williams cut to as well but they were here the last few weeks they're really getting their hands on him on the line and you can tell it's frustrating him yesterday's game downfield or at least he did the last time that he played but bringing him in is going to bring a whole nother plethora of problems and media in hopes on seventy two carries I I'm getting to the point where I really want to see a Darwin John here are receiving core like I said tyreek Hill three steps and three receptions for seventy four yards and touchdown the twenty four point seven yards poor reception elect obviously that was going to happen I'm sure he'll follow up and he'll have another MRI bomb still hold my breath with them the we have the best Qatari killed in touch the ball until Matt Moore came into the game yeah and that was in the third quarter that he finally got his first catch yes that guy is is Eli manning for everybody I just I'm sure Chris doesn't like that last name coming out of his mouth I don't I have no problem with crazy names out there that could possibly get brought in to back him up ultimately OPS and out in the regular season get him out there and see what he can do like we need some fireworks in the backfield and I feel like this is the perfect time for us to kind of test the waters with that Oh you can't say one thing and have one guy bench say the same thing and have the guy starting now granted Lucianne McCoy has proven that he deserves to be on the field was a backup right now and we got our hands on him for the rest of the season I would say we got after that but other than that I'm sure we're GONNA have to pull a quarterback in a negative yards so are receiving we did well and that's another thing that Matt Moore got the ball around Robinson got back in the mix that was nice look it was really mixed up or you know across the board for receivers demarcus Robinson caught three passes McCall Hartman to am he times he caught six of those I mean I love I love that that ratio to Marcus Robinson targeted five times constable three I mean these shows are fantastic which tells me that Moore was putting the ball where these guys could catch which is great and as my thing is as long as he doesn't make the big mistake our are we sticking with Matt and bring in behind him I think we're going to stick with Matt I really don't I don't know there's so many savings coming at Ya savings coming at Ya yes no maybe anyway see you practice tonight I got new lyrics for the rap Break Progressive Casualty Insurance Company and affiliates price and coverage match limited by state law home what like an eight yard catch next catch boom gone for touchdown so that'll tell you if we're gonNA lean on somebody besides he definitely had a breakout you kind of found himself again and I mean you look at these targets he was targeted one who I think might be able to do well in our offense would be an e. and you just mentioned in many ways is capture nick tapper nick at least has the arm strengths to throw it then he utilizes you know all of these star players that he has around him puts the ball in the right place he'll be all right like I keep saying game I feel like Tyreek Hill be a good guide lean on and Travis Kelsey as well I've I've Kelsey can get those blocks Chelsea's been shut down just get the ball out of Moore's hands so look let's I'll tell you what the chiefs defense was okay well non existent for the last three weeks and with that being said holy cow these guys penalty they got to extend the drive to get the ball rolling another three now out within there was another foul now I understand taking a chance but you're taking a chance against a defense that literally his just we mouthed through Denver Heaves did last night on D. shutting down our division rival in Denver and it wasn't even injury to patch and we had nine sacks on defense last night that's incredible one more one more would have broke the franchise record for sacks the defense put up last night were non-existent I feel like they made up for everything you don't the last three weeks in one game they did come down and score that I touch on their only points to the game we're on the first drive the very first Dr is the fake Punt Oh yeah absolutely killed her momentum honestly I couldn't win win happened nine on defense that was just a whole other level that was like the early nineties defense that hey we appreciate the chiefs defense for showing God scored a touchdown and then we stopped we stopped them again and this is this was the turning point in the game for me which was great than that set the tempo for the rest of the game honestly because we got the ball in our hands went down one game and look you know let's talk about that for a second Anthony Hitchens you know had two sacks and a lot of these sacks were at important times too I don't believe that they were doing it at that point in the game and that position on the field that was kind of ridiculous yes and it on the first drive different have rushing play over five yards which was great because tell you what that those stats Vinnie to run it in and ragland came up and got an absolute monster stop at like the two inch line it was a penalty on the on the field goal and so they moved to the one and then they thought they decided to go for two and that's where they screwed all until he got it down and then they ended up punching into the end zone but they were stopping the run from the get-go yes fantastic because that's what we've been waiting for the city I feel like that was amazing I mean Chris take off because I'm speechless about this output that can see all night long but there was nothing they could do I mean I don't know where this defense came from that was amazing we're talking about at nine sack again this show we got to watch you know what we saw last night was the type of defense that you and I have been talking about it got in the mix and got himself a sack two so what did you think of the sack masters at work last night Chris Because that was Frank Clark to Sax Alto Kuffour had two sacks Emmanuel ogbonna had a sack Reggie Ragland had a sack Amar Armani Watts of available to these guys all season long all preseason along and do I expect to see this you know next week I think it's GonNa be a little bit more we looked like a very very well rounded team that just wanted to get after the ball all night long I mean we got through the line so kowt when they get there they're not there yet but they're getting there and they looked phenomenal it's James and the the know that they can perform at that level and it's going to be amazing to see them performing like this weekend challenging because it's GONNA be different offensive line of better off into finding we face but the chiefs defense now has the momentum the conference starting you start on that first drive on the first drive they had them three and out within due to a Frank Clark face masks how many times that game and we were just coming after him and common after mccown that they did their game plan is exactly like we laid it out and the pre great display of the aggressive defense that that we want to see and I wonder what spags said go beat us over the top because he can't and if we keep bringing the pressure like that when they run the ball and we obviously showed it we shut that down to it was just a very different Anthony Hitchens last night and I don't want to necessarily him or if it was a matter of spags to took the I'm show Chris look we gotta stack the line we gotta get in those holes not wait for the runner to come to them go to the runner get to the quarterback and make Joe flacco aimed flacco he was making him run he would stopping the run he was involved in a lot of plays last night been Neiman same things he was I saw a chiefs defense you know a so dominant and just it's it's so I look if it was just a lot of fun to watch and there there really is a lot to look forward to and the force that fumble and that's when you know raglan picked it up in ran for touchdown correct credible to watch such an amazing thing out of our defense and yeah we can we control every aspect of that game behold game and we didn't all those guys are getting after me and it was great to see the left tackle voles for Denver having to hold time that up and it was awesome defensive touchdown hitchens that was hitching second sac which was awesome became flying around the corner added before this this week like hey like just go be some dogs because asks what we saw out of this defense and all and I got Colorado has said go get you some hitchens was playing on a totally different level last night if he wasn't pressuring flacco he was correct last night it was it wasn't even fair you know I don't remember the last time the in there and again he didn't get himself the sack but he was getting some quarterback pressures he was looking Green Clark was getting in there Oh Kuffour was getting they have a whole lot of gaming experience up until that point he was looking fantastic and then yet he frank Clark was finally you know what what we needed to to make sure how Frank Clark was filing naughty finally stepped up and was that guy as well it was it was a great show all the way up and down I mean it really was it off yes and it should really raise some eyebrows you know for for teams around the League and also chiefs after time after time he only got called for three of them the mandate should have been a lot more than that the different the Denver offensive line was getting absolutely Chris let me ask you do you want to talk about this coming up game with briefly gene Ford with how much we're going to have to rely on them but let's let's ask you here let's do you know anything about the injury report I know where dude that was he was fast on that play watched that replay it's crazy to watch how fast he got around the corner it is well and like you just touched on we were seeing the the the player that we put up all that money for it was great to see a finally upkeep that aggressive you know they were heat-seeking missiles keep that up and we'll be all right and sheets kingdom so a I don't even know who to give the props to at this point because there's so much take away from this game but touch base on on what we need to do against a packers team that has a a better defense in the season before and Rogers Kingdom because I'm telling you that's something to get excited by if they can carry us through the next three weeks and just create complete chaos he definitely looked home every inch of the defensive tackle that we had needed next to Chris Jones but then in the second half give me one second I could pull it up for a second question that I had was because in the first quarter I showed us what we wanted to the money we invested into him that was a great game great game two sacks every everybody played awesome I really don't know what else okay so taking a loss here against Green Bay it's okay it's not gonna be the end of the the defense then he was last night and by no means he bad last night I just WanNa see him continue to improve because Oh and these next few games like they did last night we're in good shape were really good shape and just no mistakes by Matt Moore Defense Key tell me how important was yesterday's victory now seen let's lies ahead you know think if we you a touchdown and also were backtrack here just a little bit you know we'll go back to this game and then with that confidence and that repetition and I'd feel more confident sitting Patrick Mahomes against the chargers I'm excited to see him get some repetitions with this offense especially drop in that entire EEK as fast as tyreek is in stride which ultimately led I wanna ask you briefly say we went to out of out of the next three and we're looking really great about I'm excited about the defense yeah and the two sacks definitely should have two and a half because there was another one a huge holding his own in his ground get some stops at the line and I don't WanNa say he was the missing piece put up until last night Jeff Collins Saugus was looking easing in the run game she was released out especially for rookie is the next two games we're going to be looking at The Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings and if we can get those two wins old and it still acceptable ultimately looking for is format more work to be a better quarterback against the Green Bay has he stepped in there and it was getting stops he wasn't getting beat by the linemen US looking really good he's getting last again pressure sitting here right now at four three I think that we would have a lot different tone on the next three games of the season so yesterday coming into his own here in the midway point in the season so definitely going to be one of those scenarios where at game was huge critical critical glad we won and you know we come out five into so the packers game there's importance but I also feel like if we lose the game we're not in trouble I'm sure we're not the favourites now but it would it would still be cool yeah especially if Sammy Watkins gives back can they all get on the same page and then the final thing is balance on offense saw coming out of the chargers this season but Hey Philip rivers the chargers they tend to get hot late in the season this is the typical was a huge victory for the chief season Oh absolutely nothing essentially a turning point but it's definitely an upswing her for us for us to sneak out with a win and I think we can do it I'd say the same thing get after Rogers and but I mean he really did a decent job for the evening better than he has before and dance continuing the momentum keeping their momentum the wide receivers and Matt Moore's Cohesion League change the entire outlook of the game then what we had set in the preseason and if we can keep the balance in in improving the run game in and then still mixing in some throws and vice versa is going to really we still have a game and a half lead over Oakland a regardless of what they do this weekend against the packers and I'm just GonNa put it out and a two in one record by technically three and one record by Matt Moore backup while Mahomes is out I'll be stoked with that make him make him beat us over the top and there's GonNa be three key components to this game is the d yeah but also as a divisional victory and that's important as well that we're to anno- and the division now and we're still sitting atop charges are in the cellar with the broncos but they're definitely hovering down there with them yes for sure for sure and you know nobody I don't I don't think that we should count ourselves out against against the packers it's GonNa be a tough game but if that defense shows up chargers so we still got plenty of football left to play so we're going to swing back here to to the packers game because you know this and then came back into the swing of things that that really would be great if Matt Moore steps to the plate here and look we're getting every penny out of him Okeafor d did looked great last night all of those guys every single one of them on that how come as the backup and on call if we need him am let's finish up going into the bye week nine everybody that we picked up
Scarlet Jimmies Ep. 5: Rams Postgame
"Hours on the ground with all thirty two teams plus national writers you know and love like Jay Glazer Mike Sando and Mike Lombardi the athletic is telling stories you won't find in today's episode is brought to you by the Atlantic the athletic is a subscription based sports news site delivering in-depth sports coverage for diehard fans featuring NFL Welcome to another episode athletic dot com slash SB nation that's the athletic dot com slash SB nation marched down the forty niners downfield seven plays all runs touchdown what were your initial thoughts after is quarterback rating of sixty and he just it seemed like McVeigh wanted nothing to do with having the ball in the air turned around but I'm not GonNa lie I thought I thought that opening drive was the statement drive for the rams and I thought well this is where they turn their season around probably pretty much I've been pretty much dragged for having those thoughts about him for two years now since he you know since McVeigh's taken over but this is one of those games where it's just though this is about how I think we all expected it could go and it started off that way with just a little bit of a sinking feeling so glad that quickly yeah I thought they were GonNa have their way with the thought the rams having an extra few days to prepare plus a forty niners coming off a short week I just thought what about him I've never been a big fan of his I just didn't I didn't like him coming out of the draft that high and I got ten days to prepare for an opponent you think especially with the guy like Sean McVeigh that he would come out swinging and come out with more something better than Jared Goff plenty to cheer about so we're GONNA get into the game a little bit to talk about some of the things that we liked so when we did not like obviously was the rams drives of scarlet Jimmy's forty-nine beat the rams twenty two seven so this is episode five and I'm joined by a rich the era zona full of forty niners fans in is pretty crazy man people are just tie five at each other chance after first downs was pretty entertaining and the forty niners gave in what I thought this was my brain works in really weird ways I actually bet the forty niners after the ram score because whenever thrown on there not much man how are you doing world that was that was probably the most enjoyable game for me no doubt I watched the game at a bar what did you think that all the rams are going to have their way with Fernandez defense or did you think that you know what did you tell me the pressure on him that he wasn't gonNA play well because anytime the team gets pressure on him you never plays well so they did exactly what I thought they would I definitely thought that we would see a more desperate team today from the home team that is I thought that there will be more wrinkles like you mentioned because man he was not good today Jerry Goff finished the game with seventy eight passing yards US thirteen for twenty four no touchdowns no interceptions was sacked four times in put him under pressure when he did pass and it didn't turn out well I mean I think by the fourth quarter you know he had seven completions of ten pass attempts four times he didn't he didn't turn the ball over at least not an interception but they didn't need to get they didn't need to force them into interceptions because everything forty niners defenses on real man they can eliminate mistakes and they can force you the mistakes and that's what we saw a lot of Goffin even look staring at you right in the face if you're rams fan when when are you going to admit that this guy is probably not the answer I just didn't think he played that well and I knew that if the golf averaged three point three yards per attempt that is tough to do man and you just he seems spooky starting to see that because there's nothing that he could do usually mcvay will scheme his guys open schemers receivers open and I don't know if it had a lot to do with the office of line in opening drive and I know that they had plenty of success on the ground but when you don't draw back to passages that scream something to me man and I I didn't think that golf he was throwing was either ducks or hitting the ground you know five yards in front of the receiver so it just it was a vintage Jerod Golf game for me I just don't think he's ever looked that good and like a top five safety I feel very confident in that he doesn't have the flashy plays he's not gonNa have the interceptions a pass breakup but may he mcvay had confidence golfing that's what we saw throughout the game so let's let's talk about golf a little bit man is your takeaway from this game for him just confirmed everything I've ever on those the back to back from that Jimmy Warren got those plays on third and fourth down you can put your safety on the other teams best receiver that's no you didn't there's no reason for us to beat around the Bush here he's terrible I feel I fly McVeigh is oh boy man Brandin Cooks Coober Cup all afterthoughts today cooks had eighteen yards receiving cup had seventeen yards receiving and I think he finished the day with what did he finished with thirteen thirteen of twenty minutes under one hundred yards he was sacked you can see what it's doing for everybody else upfront and there was a play that I covered him I filmed remarkable this weekend about that where buckner the second level of the defense that's May we're talking about a little a little bit off the air here just the difference between Quantum Alexander friend he had that fumble recovery to open the second half and then another guy that didn't end up on the stats sheet that that much but was probably Nick Bosa went up that ten point lead seventeen seven is seemed like the only man the the speed on and trust him to make plays manages says a lot about just what the forty niners thrown on the field in I would actually credit the second wow I where do you start I think probably upfront I would go with Eric Armstead I thought played really well up front but in a good way where he's taking guys out or making the running back cut-back Warner's playing fast whiskey tart he is playing it'd be another one that I would pick their I believe at two sacks as well so yeah Ford had that the Strip sack which man I love that Wade Phillips influence in the secondary what some of the things that are doing this season and that's credit to Joe Woods because he coached under that system in seem scared when you're single rattled in the pocket he had started fadeaways missing low just wasn't really confidence throws him once the forty niners and then that's when quantities comes in and blows up I think it was Nick Chub and they get the ten yard sack on on Mayfield so there there's a lot wake forest book this year what would you say I believe it I think buckner is drawing a lot of attention especially from interior offensive lines but push that right tackle or that are that left tackle around a lot I mean he just just bowl rushed him into the backfield several times and then Dee Ford ause to Def- to blockers in income Fred Warner draws a third offensive lineman so you've basically got from guard senator to guard all blocking just two guys will fill his ron his run he will take on a blocker make tackle just so many little things that he does that allows a forty nine you know even marginal players in some spots but that defensive line has just been a nightmare for other teams you and you can of that going on I think it I'm not concerned about it because I think they're doing exactly what they thought teams would do to Buckner just giving you know the way he's played the last couple you know whenever whenever a team will run trips against this style of defense they could just have their way with you and forty niners aren't just spot dropping and pettus because you know he he's been quiet he has had many consider he has not been consistent this season but he had a few big catches today see them playing together as a unit it's man this defense is something serious I will say that yeah you can really see a lot of the Blah Blah ball season so what this front seven is legit but the back seven when you see the route so they take away he I don't know how you find ways to get him the ball more whether that is down the same where that is on quick routes but this year compared to last year and largely whoever they're throwing out there just night and day Kwan is aggressive like reckless Solid blitzed more than usually dozen and I wish I had the numbers in front of me but when they blitz when they walked down Warner Alexander tackles and got inside the five believe it was looking at it right now but he makes a couple of good moves and then he had that one like you were saying in the back of the end zone going to win whether that's buckner whether that's arms whether that's one of the edge guys and just puts so much stress on the office and they just can't hold up they haven't been at this point and it's just unfortunate that you know they're not able to get him the ball more but I do think the debt is partly last couple of weeks have been under or get one Williams who's actually pretty blitz or one of the safeties it just gives every body one online and somebody wins that's just period somebody not as pass dependent as you'd like them to be just because of the past Russia's they've been facing you know you had myles Garrett last week and then Erin but I think that'll change once they start seeing you know not as good of a pass rush from some teams like we've got the redskins coming up who he could have easily had two scores if had just broken you know maybe a foot the other way for him because he had long nineteen yard catch where he broke a couple of Donald this week and it's understandable that they would kind of rely more on the short passing game and Pettus is more of an intermediate receiver unless you can find a way to get him a ball in space but again he's a really good athlete he had one against Marcus Peters we ran out route really nice route is kind of Peter off there in created separation underneath uncovered three they're they're running these quarters and have these checks where they still have the numbers advantage and you can do that when you have four really good pass rushers with Wade Phillips before he took over as a defensive coordinator there and then you know San Francisco brings him in to do the passing game stuff for the defense and it's really made huge on a short route or something but he is a guy that can laterally and vertically stretch intermediate area the field and if you can't get him the ball in those spots so it's it's been perfect marriage for sure the agree let's talk about Dante route really nice designed by Shanahan got him wide open broke seventeen tackles give or take and that guy man he six doesn't matter he's still he's running routes to yards before the sticks breaks tackles gives a first down and that is a sign of a true super on and he's you know he's just a couple of inches away from getting that second foot down and that would have easily been a touchdown but that's that's what we always thought he could be in what he should be old reliable is the best way to put it I actually would prefer kitto being a down to down target where you know he's going to get the ball third uses and he's not going to be quite as productive because they're just not able to get him the ball and the show on the short you know five yard throws like they can for Brita or somebody you realize well they're gonNA probably try to get the ball out of Garoppolo his hands quicker so it might not happen right away and we saw that's a sign of a really good pass rush close and they're not thinking about the quarterback they're talking that ball out if I were to tell you Eric Armstead has honors to be this versatile he is he's very impressive what who's most suppress planning defense for you too the way they scream around it absolutely man in so I feel like this game more than any of the other past Games anywhere else no ads or click bait just great sports writing join today for the inside story on your team forty percent off your annual subscription to the best scores running around all year so good for them that they're able to scheme around that and I think solemn knows I think he's a really smart guy it's really showed this year what he can do with a first down but he had one in the back of the end zone where he just jumped out of the gym almost came Dallas it play before that he actually did go up and get it the threat at any point in the field george kill eight targets eight catches hundred three yards how long forty five yard where he lined up at fullback and just rent a little flat this game with three catches on six targets forty five yards I had long twenty one yard or their fill like each of those catches went for oh aren't aren't very good so I would I would I would I would hope that they could get pedal pedal pettus more involved and we're seeing a lot more quarters would you agree with that absolutely running a lot more cover for this year and then the happened years pass in years past I feel like prince so I think there's a guy I'm sorry go ahead no I was just going to say there's no doubt about it that woods makes is making a big difference yeah this is good what would you see from what we've always thought he could be in that was he finally had that game today even though he didn't get in the end zone and he could have you know see if they can maybe force them
 Week 3: Los Angeles Rams coaches film review
"Every year in the NFL it's a new team as far as goals go one putting a fucker in offender welcome to the buccaneers observer pond Kansas around Philip Days October first two thousand nineteen beat the Rams Dan good team celebrate these wins and ride the hell out of them till next time Gal Lax Barret Barrett played eighty three percent of the snaps defensively and probably ten percent of those were him drop back in coverage they put up forty points on our defense it wasn't the cornerbacks linebacker I said this last week the linebackers new things there was there was some stuff in here that that seem obvious in the broadcast version you know it seemed obvious that we won for him to still be able to get the stats. He's getting for Saks pressures amazing was that the way it was the last game in the giants game the cornerbacks are secondary needs to do a better job yeah people are a little upset that they allow on over five hundred yards for a quarterback and go over for and if something so that's when I say it's a scheme problem where we've got beat a couple of times because we've got guys running into coverage from the line bits and the linebacker has to run out there and cover his man and sometimes he doesn't get there fast enough or there's just a an issue with him getting out there or he doesn't and our scheme we a lot of times we would drop are outside linebackers back into coverage massive Barrett which is amazing to me that back in coverage what it's a lot of when I say it's the linebackers and the scheme will do things like have a cornerback sort of probably be of you got that Ben Quick don't feel like it in slaving away all day it's a tough life right now so we learned yes yes yes interesting coverage that much we do a lot of stuff on our defenseman we move around so much we never know who's coming coach at Indianapolis where Andrew Lock got hurt so many times he's what these guys in the shape I really like what they're doing yeah hats off to along were effective than they were last year and we have largely the same unit I remember everyone is panicking and when we got Joe Gilbert because he was offensive line Smith out there playing tough or offense Alana's playing tough I just think if you needed evidence of a culture change that's it though too yes we talked about this and all season that there was going to be this way but you never know who's common who's traffic backing coverage where the coverage is going to be manned zone press when we're very few times where there was an open receiver that's very few and when gough was able to throw it normally the quarterback was right there you know may tackle in Gilbert great out for us would you think what did you see I wanna hear what's this new stuff all the new stuff is in the narrative is and they're they're not getting back there quick enough or they're not getting the right spots or whatever it's just a good ofensive play against that type of movement here's in that area and he threw it right in that window that was actually quite impressive really shouldn't have been able to make that term but he was also very bad so is that poor execution of the scheme or the scheme itself well it's GonNa happen so I think it's really poor execution of the scheme they'll get better instantly or whatever so the secondary is not an issue at all I think they played very well but what do you say five hundred seventeen yards and forty points zone playing mentor is an issue with that okay inside linebackers are Vanessa it's back well the outside linebackers you know when they in convincing fashion and Donovan Smith let's kill 'em people now's probably my favorite part of the whole game like thirty times I have it's good to see a lot of stuff he missed wide open receivers he didn't he didn't not see wide open receivers he would just throw too far to shore he you too they turned around none of Smith and got him to do what he needed to do well it's not even just Donovan the whole line is working together yes the whole offensive line is pleasure he dropped back and went towards the middle and they had a guy running across and he went right between them two and there was a safety right behind him so he threw it was actually four bucks ages him throw in bad passes he overthrows running backs going for screens he had an open receiver for touchdown and he overthrew the guy says he over okay so what does our lackluster will the linebackers they're the ones that need to get better and coverage and it's really intermediate routes on a lot of his passes were he shouldn't have made them or they've shut thrown on anyhow but then they would make it and it made him look good well a lot of it like I said was scheme in the sense that they once we had big lead we give them cushion and let them come down the field slowly no goff was really good at throwing the but also we gave a five hundred dollars but like I said we were letting them matriculate down the field and also the the last couple of drives which were basically garbage time really added as time goes on this is how it is just going to work but the the cornerbacks man they were they were on these guys like glue they did a really good job they did have a lot of pass defense fifty eight times and that's ten yards per throw so they were going down the field very slowly and they weren't going down the field for long distances either you know yeah it wasn't I never felt threatened I mean there was one point in the game where I was like oh it's kind of like in the Super Bowl though when we were planning we just dominated the I can't believe I was ever worried about that this was now we double team Donald Aaron Donald Almost every snap as the first time I've ever seen that happen in it's it's totally ineffective they neutered the whole play guys never get returns I mean one thousand maybe I think we did the stats on it was like he had a lot of bad passes that encounter but I'd say at least six how much of that was due to him not having enough time in the pocket not many those six passes I would say and see teams purposely have two guys on arable Koi more than ten percent of the time a lot of that was designed plays where both tackles would get yeah we're fine we're fine with the second completely I'd give them a grade of B minors are an a minus they played oil and they actually didn't put up forty points they put up some tight window there was one time where NASA and Barrett both jobs back in the coverage in the two inside linebackers blitzed they dropped straight back but aww or best possible need to get some pressure on he got hit quite a few times to Dan we say which they want the Volunteer David and mentor the NFL has just got to get rid of kickoffs just get rid of it's a waste of time you know we had guy get hurt two guys get hurt on the last kickoff doc plays that's any place that he has he was on the field ninety four percent wow of the plays they came in and met at the quarterback and just squish them Goff Sandwich but yeah our secondary fine secondary's fine lamberth's refined to everything's fine I mean we get CBS did a real good job with Barrett he pretty much shut down Barrett's plays came when he was all against other guys out really interesting need to sell big and just has such a weird body proportion does it look like now rising a lurch tweet zero one percent it's ridiculous there was one kickoff return in this now maybe to say one I forgot about that last kickoff so maybe meany had went like four tackles yeah he was pretty much ineffective in this game now Whitworth the number seventy seven left tackle for the rain in fact Jack the rams got within five points of is not eight like Eissa right now they got close close for like two minutes but it we score less seventy four thirty four to let more palatable right no I don't care if they could put a fifty four teams wouldn't have to have a kicker the kickoff guy I can't I can't remember what they're called thirty-one Whitehead he's just awesome not really he made two out of twenty I can't remember there was a lot of kickoff in this but it's just it's useless it's useless it's a waste of time on the the he can't run on us you can't do it you can't run on us they had one good Ron I think it was thirteen yards and they scored a touchdown on it girly did I mean they had like twenty seven raiders so bad there was one point where they got within like seven points or fourteen points and you went who they might make a comeback but then you just Coletta's you laugh about it after the game a little now on and then there was bad tackling cornerbacks and Edwards safety those runs by Roggio that were called back where you ain't going to look at the penalties yes is last drive you know they got like fifty yards and say takes that's four fifty and then you if you if you want you we did not get beat like the stats say I mean golf through cards combined or something I feel like they're not even trying anymore we hit a lot of TSL's on girly yet the rams gave up on it they were like this we I don't need people aren't there sixty eight pass plays golfs arm is numb still we started to play a little bit off coverage after we got is pressure goff he was tipping balls he was tackling he was doing all kinds of stuff but he's got a lot of energy in the sense he brings a lot of energy to the team like after plays he'll be I didn't know how that was going to go I did notice him doing that thing with arms yeah pushing down he got he got a very good with that one time to offense Lineman with Air Donald we pretty much had two guys on him at all times a few times we have three guys running that's incredible and just thought they were so successful called for olive is right at the end to on this is hitting a quarterback some like that unnecessary roughness something on that one it should have been intentional grounding play I think it was kappa great block just open up that whole the other one they were legitimate holds both of the tight ends held snapper you have to be outside his shoulder pants you can't run into hill and you can't hit him in the head. Well Nacho didn't do any of that up twenty one before that we were just about strictly man coverage but then we started mixing in off coverage we were actually playing more off coverage zone than we were a man after that point and very roughness when he on they were trying to feel go now he went the rule is you can't lineup over the center on a field goal one of them was Godwin came in motion and inset or formation at the line but it wasn't there for a full second stopped before they snapped the ball he tried to shoot in the gap between these center and the guard the Guard pushed him into the center a little bit but I mean not just went through the gap how that clapping his hands jumping up and down on replacement what do another thing but this ties into what we saw on what we know about this as much as the twenty to change my mind about this Jameis Winston played excellent I mean excellent he had too bad passes when they started to come back yeah that's what we started letting them matriculate down the field just run clock off on the girlie thirteen yard touchdown run up the middle the linebackers was unnecessary roughness I have no idea it was a stupid stupid penalty there were others too I think but I can't remember pointing out in the in the video get some great throws making great decisions he didn't leave any yardage out on the field that interception people might be thinking that was the one bad decision to help but Evans had gotten in that zone between the cornerback in the safety he was open and Winston stepped up to throw the ball and the guy that Donald Smith was blocking I'll see tomorrow what the big thing the big thing that I saw in the game or in the film that I didn't see in the game both legitimate penalties now but we had a lot of illegitimate children to illegitimate penalties that one massive leaned over and hit Winston as he threw it he caused the ball come up short the guy was able to intercept it but yeah Mike Evans was ten feet past you professional football game you hear about it all the time McColl used to say it all the time Oh he got double team to every now and he ran into double teams a lot you not at all that wasn't his fault at all Mike Evans was open down the sideline and might would have gone for a touchdown there was a safety coming over time points on the healthcare and in two thousand yards we one yeah and we're good team we look good they struggle the whole time oh I forgot to fact check followed By Golf he threw a pass almost exactly like Winston did a couple of weeks ago where he got called for intentional grounding food out of the zone while he was being pressured he's in the pocket bad decision and one receiver that was open at he didn't see now we all know he played a good game and managed the game and all that but he was during that play one of our coaches got hurt he got hit I can't tell if it was in the face or the back of the head with a helmet and everybody was screaming over there yeah he was bald over he was kind of a B. S. penalty I wanted to look to the rest of the game and see because you see it happen all the time and sometimes it caused sometimes they don't affected the plate none whatsoever on that blame that on James Winston he should he should have known but he had his head turned the other way that was a legitimate penalty and now it's for illegal mention correct it's a also if somebody on the defensive side because he was over on the defensive side of the ball right at the line of scrimmage just about I do not remember seeing that on the off through yeah he's a little more slippery of the two like they can get a hand on him and he can kind of evade whereas Peyton will run right into them dynamic he hits a hold a little bit harder neither one of them have what I would consider great vision I think they miss some holes but rojas more likely to be able to they didn't call on Gov but then they called it hit a NASA and that was just totally week totally week and then there was the call on Nacho for on the like that defensive snaps to call today was a arcane words Labonte David out there one hundred percent of the defensive snaps but he was all over the place and he was blitzen he this year and this went on for a few seconds I don't know what he was saying you know probably like the guy survived you're gonna be okay this isn't a manslaughter charge the video data found interesting one Donald Smith hit when he hit that guy one of the rams players came over to Donald Smith Donald smidt looked like he might have been shaken up to or something he was the old but it's more a waste of my time you know you have to sit there they kick off it takes thirty seconds or whatever and then there's a commercial break after that early in the he's also almost always a flag just get rid of them just get rid of you know if you're GonNa make this week and boring just get rid of them uncast no you wouldn't have seen it on the broadcast they didn't show a lot of little skirmishes GonNa we played a very physical game Mike Evans out their throat and people and we did with Janssen and somebody else on his own that's nice what do you think about Roger over says Payton Roggio dosing you know had his hands on his thighs bent over holding his face I wonder him was don't know I would say the defensive coordinator no it wasn't on one knee and the rain by immediately came over to dot and Smith and bent down and put his arm over like around his shoulders and started talking into his different perspective of the game but I could say this we are a damn good team damn good I think it would be safe to say at this point we have arguably the best notes as I'm doing the film work day right down Samba not for everything so you know there's plenty of stuff on a video that is interesting things I found interesting a bit but you know those guys are GonNa get double team just by the nature of schemes right no matter who's in there in that position is going to get double teamed a lot I'm sure there's plenty of stuff I'm forgetting I didn't write down the play where the cornerback for the rams got the unnecessary roughness for hitting I think it was God when out of bounds or shove demon I'll start a fight on the silence that guy emblazoned down the Field Winston Haning but he got hit and it really wasn't Donald Smith Donald Smith good of I guess not let the guy get that close but you healthy yes so I'm he's trying to get paid to like shack they fighting over the bucks cap money next year there was a couple of things defensive line of football even our backups or second-stringers are good offense line is played well quarterbacks played very well secondary did well and words you know he he I don't know I feel bad around two after beating the rams I'm like we can seek the saints especially with Andrew Breeze the only thing I worry about the saints is Sean Payton I think they're they're both good running backs Roja does seem to have the better ballots in feet and all that but Peyton is tougher running back how did he do we're gonNA give up some big plays this defense is just built that away but they're not going to we're not going to get blown out nobody is going to be able to blow us out the days of being blown out a gun for a time the guy just happened lean over and hit Winston as he threw the ball so it wasn't wisdom's full

"Want to know more about what your favorite Ninjas have on their minds check out the American Ninja Warrior podcasts. It's available wherever you get your podcast and it's a great listen for any Ninja Warrior Fan and welcome to this week's addition of niners nation dot com better rivals podcast my name is Oscar ratio and this week it is the eighth consecutive win Wednesday in a rope even if we might be coming to you a little earlier this week because of the Thursday game Kyla Murray said quote I hope I'm not really satisfied with coming short and I think tyler you're not gonNA WANNA use that word combination too often and with me this week the tell us how many times he's is called Kevin Coleman Tevin Campbell David Newman zero okay so question number do you know Kevin Coleman or Kevin Kevin Coleman is yeah who's Devin Campbell some dude who's name sounds a little bit like that and going seven Campbell Nineties rb star came on the scene early early on maybe with like thirteen years of age had a couple of hits than his voice broke fell off the map not by name Yeah Yeah I don't know not cancelled the idea sure I'm sure there's a song that I have like undoubtedly heard yeah absolutely but yeah not by name all right yeah I guess ninety babies seven Kevin Kevin Campbell is legit when we originally signed Kevin Coleman and still to this day now Marcus Thompson degrade story in athletic about how often he actually asked Heaven Coleman and how often do you get called Kevin Campbell and he said it was a great right of athletic but he said that you know his Coleman's body just kind of shrugged and he landowners all the time and it's a real sore spot for him yeah but yeah look at you should listen to some Tevin Campbell on the way home I think you're you might you might my child on the way home well just from listening to that wow impressive but David it's good to have you back on the show of course this is the first time you've been on the show this season where the focus of the show will not be punters in the running game because this Arizona Games something my friend it was fun I would refuse to come on if it were anything other than than and with the things that we're going to talk about because you know nobody got time I was trying to find a way to make it all about the punt game but that's not what this is going to be about it's going to be the forty niners escaping Arizona sonal with a twenty eight to twenty three win and this really was a game where the team could not rely on it's typical formula because the typical formula this far for the for the forty niners has been and while defense plays great the running game is is unleashed and you just need Garoppolo to make enough throws in the passing game to keep on schedule and that's that but this this game did not go according to plan and the forty niners had to win a little differently yea kind of all of the things that they've been relying on weren't really all that good like the run game really wasn't there defensively this was probably their worst game definitely the worst one I think since the the season opener it against Tampa Bay and so just kind of like yeah overall the things that they have been relying on to kind of win games through the first half of the season largely just wasn't there and they had to win and kind of a different way and it was one that we've been waiting for them to show that they can win this way right I think for for reasons and we'll get into more you know it wasn't all the way there on on at least one side of the ball but I think from a passing game standpoint this was finally a AH chance for us to see Jimmy Garoppolo have to go out and kind of win a game with just what he's doing with his arm now defense gave up more points in this game than they did in their last four games combined and usually that comes in like some opening state opening game run success teams normally found and Arizona went right down the field on on the opening drive in scored a touchdown and so you're thinking okay we've got them right where we want right where we want him but usually the niners come right back and they're able to run the ball and that just didn't happen happened against the Arizona cardinals when it comes to their rushing efficiency in this game it was one of their worst games on the ground entering the game thirty nine point three percent another runs generated a positive EPA which just above league average but against the cardinals that number dropped all the way down twenty five point eight which was by far their lowest of the season season and you look at that number and it would be like that's not only just kind of bad for where they've been this year that would be the worst number across the league if that was kind of where where they were at over the course of the full season so far so they went from being you know overall very good and their numbers a little bit lowered anyway because of the number of runs that they do have when they're kind of running out games in at the very end that where defense are kind of load up on it and no you're not really looking for efficiency in those situations right but even when you look at kind of more neutral situations they're you know they're run game from an efficiency standpoint is ben just kind of a little above average and it dropped it basically basically all the way down to what would be the bottom of league so it was a drastic drop off in what they've kind of come to expect from the run game this year and that that kind of again put things on on Garoppolo shoulders you know I think you look at what the cardinals were doing to defend the run and I think Western rich burke didn't have a great game I think apparently for whatever ever reason the niners when it comes to facing the interior of cardinals defenses just always fall apart when it happened when Daniel Kilgore Corey is still there but he wasn't really the guy that was able to do much Zach Zach Kerr had a decent game I mean they were stretches in the second and third quarter where the interior of the forty niners offensive line was two yards in the backfield as the forty niners are trying to get their run game going and it was something that just consistently they tried to run into loaded boxes and heavy boxes and the cardinals linebackers and the ear the interior of the defensive line was just playing stout football yeah they just didn't have a lot of states you know and and so I think when you especially like four nares run on early downs is much more than any other team in football and so when you end up continuing to stick with that approach right which I think the largely did for for the most part still running heavy on first and second down that does kind of make things a little bit more difficult for your quarterback right you'd like to have him have some more opportunities early elite on those downs to be able to set up you know either shorter third down conversion opportunities or just not get to third down to begin with right because you're able to be efficient in those early spots but when you're getting stuffed up in the run game and you and you're kind of getting behind in down and distance a little bit you end up in these long situations that it felt like they were in pretty consistently throughout the game and then just kept going back to Garoppolo and having to make these plays a bail amount now the game wasn't very effective but neither was the coverage unit coverage unit probably had their worst game of the year I think overall going into this game of course the niners defense has been the story we've always said that this season that the team was going to go as far whereas the defense took them in the defense is taken them pretty damn far so far this year through week eight only thirty five point one of opponents passing plays generated a positive AH PA which is ridiculously low very very low New England was thirty five percent no one else was below forty and yet Arizona was successful is full on over half of their passing plays and so the the coverage unit and this was largely with their pass rush not doing like anything significantly worse sore playing worse than they have throughout the rest of the year so there's really did fall on the coverage shoulders definitely you look at all the guys up front right boasts afford buckner all had pretty solid games up there you know it wasn't necessarily their most dominant game of the season you they've had some obviously pretty impressive performances so far this year from passer standpoint it wasn't like the best one that they've had but it was still very good I think largely in line with what we've kind of come to expect from that group those three guys in particular at the top all oh had passed rush win rate so just the amount of time they're beating the blocker in front of them right to be able to try to have an opportunity to get to the quarterback over twenty percent of the time which is a really good number so the pass rush was there but the success for the cardinals were having offensively especially through the past game was largely because has of some faults in the coverage and it wasn't really some stuff that you would normally think of first when you're thinking of breakdowns in coverage so why was that because there's obviously the one big breakdown in coverage and that was the the long touchdown pass to Andy Isabella who is someone that we were high on pre-draft process and we would have liked wouldn't mind that I would say for him to be a forty niner but he's explosive Elizabeth shots in the speed in quite frankly it was just you know the the corner try to try to undercut that ball and just missed now and you know he he took a gamble and it did not pay off high risk high reward play for sure and has and then all of a sudden you've got Sherman who takes a bit of a bad angle going to the the wide receiver and then Isabela cuts back you've got you know war that position as well and then it's just speed and he takes it to the house but that that you can understand sometimes that happens opens it doesn't happen often hasn't so far for the niners this year but where else did the niners breakdown in coverage that allowed Arizona's stay in the game so the the main area that you you saw them kind of get get screwed on was really in the screen game I think that was kind of the big area where they just kind of struggled to defend what Arizona was doing Kenyan drake obviously did a lot of work on the ground as well but was a big factor in the passing game and it was largely with these screens and so you look at it keiler is kind of overall line right had about two hundred and forty passing yards well ninety of them came on the as Abella play and then nearly another ninety came in screen game so there wasn't a whole lot of just kind of like standard gender dropback stuff where he's picking things apart in looking to push the ball downfield it was basically at the one big play and then it was a bunch of underneath stuff that they they just happened to be out of position on so this is kind of what he's not an area that you really think of from a coverage standpoint because it's not as much about guys just lining up against you know in a one on one situation having somebody beat them on a route right it's not getting beaten that way defense in the screen game is a lot more similar to you defense on the run game and it's about fits in angles in you WanNa make sure that you're getting guys at the right spot so that you're funneling the ball carrier to your help and that was something that they've they've struggled with in this game and really when you think about run fits it's funny that the niners also have some issues in the run game as well because some of that is fit related as well but when you hear the term run fit fit it can mean a lot of things but when talking about the screen game really it means forcing the runner back to your help you don't WanNa do the thing or take the angle that outlets the the runner basically get around you or get to green grass and that's unfortunately what the niners defense has been doing and did on a couple of screens against the cardinals when you look at the first screen to Kenyan drake because they had a couple of screens to open the game but then you get to the first green to drake you've got Fred Warner who tries to slip under a blocker instead instead of staying to that blockers outside shoulder and ultimately it means that you get a runner who can get around him super easy because the help is nowhere to be found a little bit later you see Qatar do something very similar and actually successfully ducks under the the blocker but eventually misses the tackle it's not until a little bit later in the game where you see Fred Warner get a really good fit where he actually stays to the outside of the blocker forces drake to go inside and everyone else's rally is able to rallied make the tackle defending a screen is really about pursuit angles and making sure you're playing defense as a unit and while the forty niners defense has been very good they have shown a little bit of the of the inability to stay and play sound as one complete unit at times whether it be in the run game or the screen game right it's a it's a situation where you you know you wanna you have all these guys that want to be the one to make play essentially right and a lot of it comes down to just making sure that you're doing your job and holding your assignment I'm an even if that means you're not going to be the guy that actually makes the tackle for the stop right and so some of the issues that you mentioned the things like wow exander trying to slip underneath blocks as opposed to take the the right shoulder that he needs to get on the right side of the block so the forces things back to help things like that our chances that you take to try to make the play right you're trying to be the one it okay the blockers expected me he knows I wanna be on the outside of this he knows I want to force it back inside so he's kind of taking that angle the cut that off if I can maybe try to slip quickly inside of him in get around him then that's going to give me a free pass the ball care right so it's kind of again it's an another sort of high risk high reward play aware sometimes that works out great right you you get a quick win against that blocker have a path of the ball carrying you you're able to make that play for a short gain but it's it's definitely a risk and when you jump out a position like that if you're not able to recover in time it basically gives the sideline for because a lot of what you're talking about like the player the from an assignment standpoint point that you're looking at for this is largely flat defender rights is again very zone heavy team when they're sitting back and cover three it's whoever has that kind of curl flat is the the main guy that's going to be the fourth defender that's responsible for kind of the A he's the first line of Defense Dick Force that back inside right and so that could be for the 49ers that could be a safety somebody like Tart who plays that role frequently he had some issues on a few plays here can be linebacker as well depending on kind of the rotation their guns ends that's where you see guys like Alexander in Warner end up in that role in having to kind of force that back inside so it Kinda starts with them and everything fits off of what what they're gonNA do back inside and if you do it right the runner has to kind of keep cutting back and tell all the sudden you're back into all of your pursuit so there was actually a play the tart one they mentioned and where you see Alexander he's that pursue player right he's taken the angle that he's supposed to and tart tries to jump inside to make the tackle and then all of a sudden the runners got free path on the sideline right whereas if tart stays outside of that blocking does what he's supposed to do Alexander's got an easy tackle that he's making for a relatively short game and it's interesting you point out out that like it is people trying to do the thing that they think is good which is make the play but in trying to make that play as an individual they almost rob the unit's ability to rally alley and make the playoffs instead and so it is something I think to note in something to watch I don't think that Seattle is going to run a ton of screens because while they they like to throw any deep but it is something to monitor when it comes to there and something that could be problematic for the forty niners as the year goes on but ultimately I mean this wasn't every week so far has been the defense in in some way shape or form and their running game in some way shape or form like the last point is to kind of wrap it up that's good is is right is like this is something that you should be able to trade it's it would be far armour concerning if like oh man okay they finally played an offense that can kind of throw the ball around a little bit and it seemed like they kind of gave up some stuff and it was all because they they were just getting beat on the outside right Fitzgerald Christian Kirk were just having field days on him out there yeah that would be a lot more concerning like this is something that you should be able to coach up get it those fits figured out like you have a little bit more disciplined with what you're doing on that front kind of get it cleaned up and so hopefully something that shouldn't linger like throughout the rest of the season yeah absolutely but but I think the question so far for the forty niners has been okay what happens when things don't go according to the script that you liked to leverage and that's exactly what happened against Arizona I wanna and what happened was Jimmy Garoppolo resounded a responded I should say with probably his best game and really the question and the second thing that we think in this game is was was this Jimmy Garoppolo's best game or his best game because he he was absolutely lights out this game I mean he had a couple of just what the hell are like I cannot not believe that actually happened type throws or you're just like jaw on the floor wow this is exactly why Jimmy Garoppolo was is one of the highest payed quarterbacks in the League Egan last week I asked the question whether or not we should begin to be concerned about Jimmy Garoppolo because he had made a couple of bone headed decisions when it came to turn overs just sub optimal plays but he had seemed to take a step back in that intermediate accuracy that really had defined the success of Jimmy Garoppolo and here we go one week later and it's like no you know what I'm not gonNA worry you do you do your thing yeah I think it was definitely his most impressive performance this season I I think a lot of people were kind of remember freaking out a little bit about the Pittsburgh game was like one that people were like really high on but that one to me like wasn't nearly his impressive right I think what we saw from him in this game was very much a return to like you said kind of some of the things that that we were at least banking on sticking around and being in kind of consistent themes to his game and that was being accurate being able to make the throws in the intermediate area what we've seen from them kind of leading up to this and we'll be starting to get concerning writers like they were thrown short a lot which to to degree can understand what you're missing both your tackles you gotta adjusting things with your game plan like okay you can may may be tried to explain away some of that but there were still a lot of plays where there were maybe some chances there that he could have taken or or had some throws it he didn't even make it was just missing right so there were the remorse misses the accuracy wasn't quite there at that intermediate level while I think last week the perfect example is the intersection to kill where he's got Pettus Wide Open for some reason season decides to come off of Pettus and throw almost immediately to kill who's just he trusts he's GonNa be there he trusts that guy and key Kelly is there and he's able to undercut the ball for an interception I mean that that is kind of if you're worried about Garoppolo the play you look at and you go low worried yeah I think I mean those were you have like those those kind of random really poor decisions right which weren't really there I mean he you know when when you look at kind of that two thousand seventeen start especially early and then even the few games in two thousand eighteen it wasn't really like this horrible decision making that you really ever saw pop up right he definitely had some you know some balls that he would try to fit in or something like that that would put it in harm's way but it wasn't these egregious decisions you know this was something that did creep up more this year in a lot of turnover worthy plays have been kind of like like Whoa what is he doing there they they've been on the really bad end of that spectrum right but even then there haven't been that many compared to the rest of the NFL Alto right so I think yeah the thing for for me at least was I was less concerned about those in more with just Kinda the routine Mrs right it's it's it's not taking advantage as much of those kind have routine opportunities that he was so consistent with before and that's what what came back I think in this game and so yeah we just saw him making throws further other downfield throwing sticks we talked a lot a little bit earlier about how come they ended up in in these third long situations quite a bit and he was just so good on on third down in this game and it wasn't like he was which has just been the case in some games where he's kind of like dumping an offshore to kill say go make something happen right and kills gotta like Break Attack Tackler to to get to the first down markers in convert which still happen this game he was GonNa get I'm GonNa get he's going to do it but busted up Nian all whatever's going on there but yeah Jimmy this was a game where he was doing a little bit more heavy lifting right he was getting guys the ball beyond stick so it wasn't wholly reliant on them to make something happen to get that convert them it's very rare that we combine the spotlight player within the thing that we think game review area but that's that's exactly what's happening this week 'cause Jimmy Garoppolo is indeed the spotlight player this week because he succeeded the things that made him a successful quarterback way back in two thousand seventeen in his final moments it and I think the play that encapsulates this is that flag concept that he threw Emmanuel Sanders I mean his processing was ridiculous his release was amazing and he dropped drop the ball into a bucket hits Emmanuel Sanders in stride I mean I tweeted this play a little earlier today but you'd think of what he's got to do in in order to make this throw he decides to throw the ball when Emmanuel Sanders is at the thirty yard line or at the forty going the other way when he's at the forty yard line Emmanuel Sanders catches catches it at the thirty Patrick Peterson has no idea the balls been thrown and Emmanuel Sanders is already taking step field and this is anticipation nation this imprecision this is putting the ball in an accurate spot in the intermediate area and it was beautiful to watch it's probably one of my maybe maybe two or three favorite throws that I've seen Jimmy Garoppolo make yeah I think it has to be right at the top of the less as far as like best resume and those are the things I think that type of throw is far more Like show like shows is his high end throws right like the what they're going to look like you know as we'll talk about with Wilson Wilson his high end throws look a little bit different right his or much further downfield it's just a different type of throw that are usually the ones that you see Wilson Completing High Kylo right that's kind of his when you pull up his best plays they look different than what Jimmy Garoppolo is Bass player are GonNa look like I think that type of throw where it's like that fifteen to twenty yard area Korea great accuracy like hitting the receiver in strides we can continue running after the afterwards getting into a tight spot like that is going to be what I think Garoppolo hello best plays look like you know as as he continues to kind of like add those passes to his repertoire we get a larger and larger sample from him like that's the type of thing that I think hopefully we'll be able to look at and say this is kind of his calling card what he can do at the high end you look at a play a little bit later in the game it was third down with about four thirty seven left in the in the in the game and it's thirteen eleven and Arizona's in cover too and you think okay he's looking to the right he comes off his read of the right and he goes over to the left what's amazing easing about this throw is that he actually I didn't even notice it until I was watching the twenty two with David where he's actually got to take his off arm is non throwing arm actually keep it in close to his body so that he can get the ball over and basically get the ball around the guy who's about to hit them and is able to do that and instill while doing that lead sanders away from the defenders leverage and into a spot where only sanders can get it and like he does this listen splits of a second I don't understand how the dude processes and get accurate balls out with the speed and accuracy that he doesn't it's really fucking can amazing to me I think this is a much better example like if I want to look at a reason why like having a quick release or having the ability to kind of throw from those different arm angles which is like everybody loves to talk about now with mahomes especially like that is definitely very useful right it's less less useful like it can be on some of the short stuff and that's in it's fine like you know you get a blitz coming in your face and you get out quickly to the hot read and it's fine right like it's a quick short throw like yes those are plays that need to happen in you need those in your offense but this is where I think it can make such a huge difference for you is something like this right where it's more or downfield again it's like third and eleven soft coverage right and you get Patrick it's they're not doing this against some scrub corner right like there's some questionable defenders on Arizona's defense for sure Patrick Peterson is not one of those guys and you look at the two best throws I think in this game were both against Patrick Peterson and it was he was not in necessarily add add coverage neither one Sandra's definitely gained a step on him on that corner out there that was we talked about a minute ago and this one he's right on it you know he's again there in his own so oh he's keeping his outside leverage to his kind of responsibility in the zone but he's definitely in a play to where like where that ball ends up the majority of time like the the just routine Caro- route that you see get thrown in the NFL multiple times in every single game like what that ball looks like Patrick Peterson has a chance instead of make a play on that right he he may be knocked down at least contests it makes it a little bit more difficult catch Garoppolo is able to avoid Chandler Jones right in his face adjust just that arm angle to get it around his arm who's trying to come down and like hit either his arm or ball right he's like reaching in his face to get gets around that and then moves into space as were basically the only spot that sanders can go and still have a little bit of room to operate so I think yeah it's those throws I think for me or right up there at the top as as far as like best throws it we've seen him make now ultimately both of those throws were to one Mr Manual Sanders because he's already proving that he is exactly what the forty niners needed I mean he had one hundred hundred seventeen yards on the day against the cardinals. deebo Samuel had eighty six yards against the bengals Marcus Goodwin also had seventy seven yards against the bengals but those were the two season high for wide receivers and in two weeks you've got sanders having one hundred and seventy because when you look at the rest of the totals for wide receivers over the rest of the Games it's just a wasteland of numbers that look a whole lot like fullbacks Jersey number forty forty four forty two crony a to I mean it's not great it's not great and in two weeks sanders is like no this is what wide receivers look like buddy it's it's amazing and it's such a big difference he's he's so much fun to watch when had to watch broncos games this year leading up to the moment of the trade like he was one of the only reason I mean sutton is a pretty good player too I think and in and they had some decent guys there but it was like that was the only reason worth watching that offense right it was just hoping that flacco could get it in even in their facility so they would have have a chance to make it right but I I think Sandra's just a fun guy because he's exactly the type of receiver that Shan loves and he fits in so well with what they do and you can still we'll get after Amana as far as after the catch stuff like dude his athleticism standpoint his moves are Super Compact and they're very explosive that there was a quick route that he caught against Patrick Peterson and again the release is great and he catches the ball was a short pass but what he doesn't mmediately after he catches the ball when he takes humorous glides to the left immediately laterally early to get away quick lateral step yeah Peterson goes like stumbling yeah I mean it was just such a subtle move that gets them some extra yards after the catch against again a great defender Patrick Peterson was in shadow coverage this is what teams do when you've got a number one that they want to shut down James will tackle it two ways one and they'll put the best defender on your best guy basically tried to take him out of the game or they'll take their best defender put him on your Second Best Guy Double Cover your best guy I don't think Emmanuel Yeah Yeah exactly sanders is the level quite where you're going to see like bracketed coverage on one side and then you know that your best you step Gilmore on someone else but he's still was good enough to deserve shadow coverage and Emmanuel Sanders one day I mean over one hundred yards touchdown three clear winds against Patrick Peterson is good wide receiver I think It makes you feel a lot better about this passing offense knowing that you have two guys who can win those type of matchups right it was very clear from Arizona's like game plan defensively they basically had Patrick Peterson okay you're on Emmanuel Sanders Buddha Baker you're our only other like those are basically there to bigger your only hope the the two best playmakers on the back end that Arizona has right and you're obviously identifying the two best guys that San Francisco has in the passing game and both kettle and Sanders got the better of those matchups very consistently like Baker made a couple of plays early on and then it was pretty much all kit from the moment that kittle stiff armed dimmed fucking ten yards into the earth it was just over at that point and so yeah having now two guys who you can rely on to you win these individual matchups in because you're going to again run into teams that are going to be able to have they have some playmakers defensively and they're going to man Dan up and at that point like cow Shanahan wizardry kind of goes down a little bit right because a lot of what they do that so successful there is if you play zone you're just gonNA get murder murder because they're gonNA screw with all your roles and you're going to end up with guys running free when you play man you can kind of eliminate some of that but you need guys that can can cover right right so when you go up against a team like that that's confident in saying okay we're just GonNa put you on on their best guy you on the next best guy like you need guys that can win or your descru- offensively offensively and so having now multiple players that you feel very comfortable with in their ability to do that is is such a huge boost for this passing game are you I'm not surprised is that says now relegated to getting very few snaps he's basically the the third wide receiver at this point are you surprised goodwin was a healthy scratch at this point because he the and he had a couple of practice practice because it was dealing with a personal matter but he was a healthy scratch he he part is because he does not play special teams so he's got no additional additional value there whereas someone like James to the punt returner you've got a petty place special teams even depot play special teams as well but Goodwin doesn't so at this point point that's all snaps gone from Goodwin to someone like Emmanuel Sanders does that surprise you at all given how good he you know the time on that he did show that he could produce what the forty niners in the fact that he's not a terrible wide receiver right I don't think it's that that part's necessarily like an indictment on Goodwin I think that right now this offense offense just isn't in a spot to be able utilize him I just think I don't know that we're ever going to get a Jimmy Garoppolo that takes deep shots down the field I just I don't know if it's like I would love to see it more I would love to see just e just trying to hit some of these depot shots on the play action like even even if you're just throwing them up and they're incomplete like I don't know I feel like you need to have that threat a little bit more we've we've kind of had I don't think this is quite the same but we've seen version of an offense that has just a bunch of guys that can win in the intermediate area the short intermediate area right and kind of what defenses can start viewings in terms of like compressing that those areas and then suddenly that space that you're exploiting their zones in the middle of the field isn't really there anymore because they're they don't care about the deep stuff right they just know oh you're not gonna hit it and so I would like to see them at least try to build that in a little bit more but right now Garoppolo has not attempting them they they don't try to take those shots deep deep in so I think Goodwin because of that doesn't really have a great role like he's not I think we saw in that one season where he kinda had to take on the lead role that he he can do some of that stuff but I don't think he's as good at that as you know you're not gonNa have him do that over Emmanuel Sanders or or Deebo Samuel Right he's not as good at those things as those guys are and so just with Kinda China the way things are going with his passing game right now I do think it makes sense from that perspective I would like to see them try to utilize more so ultimately are takeaways for the game you know Arizona Zona try to dress up on Halloween and play like a good team and the niners could not rely on their typical formula because the defense could really hold him down and the coverage unit had maybe their worst game of the year but incomes Jimmy Garoppolo with a Superman Cape plays his best game potentially as a forty niner and the forty niners are eventually able to escape Arizona and the desert sort with a win so let's get to the rundown because it wasn't all roses coming out of the Arizona game because they did they did suffer a significant injury but before we get to that it's just a brief break day from our sponsors check out the American Ninja Warrior podcasts for a

previously the pectoral exists it can be torn and that's all I know accurate zone checks up you come here for the facts and you stay for the terrible puns so ultimately I I think it does suck because where Alexander was playing well this year was in coverage it wasn't always as a run defender I think some of the run it's kind of fell on him a little bit and he was starting to miss tackles at a higher rate over the last three or four weeks and he was in the first two which was kind of his calling card in Tampa Bay not sucks but he was the emotional leader for the defense and he did provide some serious value in coverage especially when it came to covering crossers so I could not let you come back on the show on the week where
Yeah, I Said It: Wide Receiver is by far the biggest hole on the Steelers' roster

Make sure you check out the website as well. We remain the flagship podcast fan podcast for everything in all. All things Pittsburgh Steelers on this particular week of the show. I want to say the following year. I said it the white receiver position is the biggest hole on the Steelers roster. Now, there are some other significant areas or holes on the roster, namely depth at the safety position and the outside linebacker position. But I've said it at nauseam in this off season with the loss of that guy that went to Oakland. The biggest thing that the Steelers would have to replace would be fifteen touchdowns. And it just so happens that it comes from the wide receiver position. Now, if you compare this to ticks between the position groupings from two thousand eighteen to now nineteen last year and this year last year being the year when that guy that's now in Oakland was a participant on the football team that roster out of the white receiver. Titian produced two hundred seventy nine receptions with three thousand two hundred seventy two yards and twenty four touchdowns. Now in comparison when you look at the group this year of Moncrieff Smith, Schuster, Washington, Switzer and Rogers they amassed two hundred and twenty three catches or two thousand six hundred forty three yards and twelve touchdowns. If you subtract the catches the yards and the touchdowns, there is a gap or a hole fifty six receptions, six hundred and twenty nine yards and twelve touchdowns. The biggest of course, it's the twelve touchdowns. It's the twelve touchdown difference. Or more importantly, the fifteen touchdown difference overall or Antonio Brown, and the reason. Why not only statistically from a production perspective that the wide receiver position is the biggest is the biggest hole excuse me. It's the guys that they've brought it or who were on the roster who have to make up that production and has a Steeler fan. And as a guy that does the podcast and the guy that breaks down Steeler roster. Takes a look at the numbers takes a look guys on film breaks, everything down. It's hard to disagree with the fact that this position grouping is your biggest hole, particularly when you're second-leading wide receiver going into this season is James Connor with fifty five or sections. You look at Moncrieff forty eight receptions last year for six hundred sixty eight yards. You look at Washington sixteen receptions for two hundred seventeen yards one touchdown and of the two hundred seventeen yards forty seven. One of those yards came on one reception. Switzer thirty six receptions, two hundred and fifty three yards Rogers twelve reception seventy nine yards zero touchdowns. And if I didn't say it's what's her head one touchdown. So if you look at the three guys on the roster or the four guys and I'm not including juju in new mix. They amassed only five touchdowns five touchdowns for one hundred excuse me for one hundred two receptions, so. That can't be promising that can't make you feel good. That's an a huge hole in production and employers that you bring in to make up for that production. Let me say those names again Moncrieff Washington Switzer and Rodgers can I add the Omar, you know, lions Tigers bears own my when you get scared when you say lies Tigers and bears. Do you get scared when you say Moncrieff, Washington, switches, routers, all no, oh, no. Oh, no. Those names don't make you warm and fuzzy at night. Those names make you think of. The night is dark and full of tears for all my game. At thrones fans out there. I mean when you think about game plan, your gets this team double juju it who else can hurt you. No one can hurt you in this wide receiving group. No one. You don't fear any of those guys. Sure Moncrieff is big and fast. But this production is never made. You think that he's more than a number three wide receiver? Washington is a guy with sixteen receptions, and gets no separation Switzer and Rogers are essentially the same guys there guys that work in a slack quick twitch guys. But none of those guys scare you. None of them. You don't go to bed at night being scared of that. Think about just the recent past that guy that went to Oakland that other guys that went to Oakland, and that guy that went to Denver that was the scary group. How about that guy? That's now in Baltimore. I don't know where that guy is now that was a scary group when that guy was on the team and even that guy that went to Oakland last year in juju that was a scary combination. And as much as I love juju Smith Schuster, and as much as I think that juju kids it and does everything the right way. I'm not necessarily convinced that juju Smith Schuster is a number one wide receiver. I'm not overly convinced that defensive coordinators are scared of juju Smith Schuster. I'm not overly convinced that what Steeler fans and what we saw in the last game against Cincinnati. May not be what we see next year. I just think when I look at this roster and even more so than a safety deposition and outside linebacker position because I think those are debt issues, I think the guys that started nose positions are fairly solid. Particularly what I just look at these names. And I go Moncrieff Washington, Switzer's Rogers. Oh, no. Oh, no. Where's the explosiveness? What makes a defensive coordinator, you know, restless on night. I mean, I think I can I can guard those guys pretty much straight up the guy. I don't think I'm scared of any of those guys I think I can put extra rushers it's a defensive packages to get after big been. I think I hold up on the back end one on one. I don't I don't feel like have to drop to safeties. You know, I feel like I can put a safety in the box and really get after this running game really make the running game succeed against a head box or more defenders there because I just don't think there's a guy that beats me including juju in any of the mix. None of this makes me a frayed or scared. What I'm looking at the Pittsburgh Steelers. I'm thinking I can handle those guys. So I would agree with ESPN and other places and other news sources in sports sources that say that the biggest hole on this roster is the wide receiver position. They don't have a star back there. I like stars. I like stars. And I liked that the attention that stars give you that enable other guys to eat and right now, can we save that ju ju is good enough to set? The menu is set the table. For Moncrieff, Roger Switzer, Washington out. Now is juju good enough to enable those guys to eat like that guy in Oakland was I don't think so. Really don't think. So I will be very surprised at what it looks like just on paper and looking at it. And again when you look at the absence of production, minus fifty six receptions, minus six hundred twenty nine yards and minus twelve TD's. And when you look at those guys and Moncrieff Washington, Switzer's Rogers aloe hundred receptions, five touchdowns. I don't know. It doesn't make me feel warm and fuzzy it makes me feel like. Desk can't had makes me feel like, but with that we're going to conclude the program and as always tune in. Tele- friend. And subscribe.
Mahomes Memories: Skip + Shannon discuss the Chiefs QB's career
"The countdown is on three days until Super Bowl. Fifty four we're on Fox and undisputed will be live here celebrating and enjoying beautiful south beach all week. Long and Patrick Mahomes Already has a handful of memorable moments under his belt. He had a left handed. Pass last season against the Broncos and also to memorable plays against the titans This year that included a joke passed during the regular season and is twenty seven yard run in the AFC championship game. So Shannon. I will I give you. You mentioned a handful of the the rolling and mild high. When he shifted the ball to his left hand? He threw it to tyreek for purse down. We've seen him throw the no. Look the jump pass in Tennessee. AMC where he jumps and throw them to be co Hartman but signature. Play to this moment has been that twenty seven yard T- Td Ryan they call it least Mo 'cause you know they had the beef mold quaker Seattle the FAA with lease mode. Why would they call it that? I thought she said it was great. It was skill skill. But come on now like you said he was. He runs a four eight forty. Well he does around five flat forty now because weighs two hundred and forty pounds. You hate you hate true teller with. He ran over a couple of people into the end zone. But that man over a what. Are you talking about trout. Truck Patio rental over around noted. This goes it's at some point time you've got to let this go look. That's his signature moment because it was such a huge momentum swinging the ball game it changed pains the complexity of the ball game. They were down and then he made this made that run that. Td Run Arrowhead erupted and they never looked back from that moment on. That's GONNA we'll have more plays but to this point. That's his signature play right there. That is the most overrated touchdown run in the history of the playoffs. Though there's never never been an overrated run can we break this down please I herald landry rushes field ten yards past mahomes homes. Where is he is he running to the boss? I don't know where he's going seriously. And Derek Robinson the linebacker he takes a terrible angle like he doesn't even see where he's going like he does want to actually tackling. Then rashawn Evans is spying bulbs. That's his job. Yeah take a good angle and he takes an even worse. You're single than Derek. Roddy was happy. Oh a head fake. They thought he was going to run out of. Boundary Dictum on the sideline. Because you can't hit quarterbacks today right so he's just going to run out of balance at the last second he said. Guess what I'm going to keep going. And they just let him keep going then we get to my main tremaine brock geno senior. He had a senior moment at this point a senior moment. He thinks he's playing flag. Football reaching for Mahomes flag flag. What what is he? Scripted Ball tried to strip the ball. He was reaching for a flag. That wasn't there and then finally a money hooker. Nobody sees him. He's number thirty seven. What twenty dozen this play? He intentionally song quarterback he he runs Rifai and dives and goes out of bounds. Sounds without touching him without even what are they doing. They looked like zombies at night of the living dead. zombies pulled after eight series. You gotta get a man created. I mean he made he made he made a play. They just let him school elated score. It looked like one of those intentional touchdown. A show at the end of the game when you want to get the ball J.. No did not. He made a great look. It's not his fault. That rush three is not as they dropped everybody and covered and the the right defensive end runs up the field so he yes. He created an alley from that point on. It's all home. Did he get any extra blocking. Who's blocking board Lord? Nobody didn't need a block trucking. You'll call that his signature. Plus I'll give you the left handed pass because I'd never seen that before you know can we will. I mean the jumped past the left handed pass but no look. He's got a lot of the rolling. I mean he threw a plans last year against the forty niners in the back of the end zone. We saw him do it against. Oh what was that Sunday night against against ending. Yeah but nothing like this. This is his look at look at Johnny Johnny. We have a lot of plays helicopter after but he took a horrendous hit. He took a maybe career-threatening hit and flipped in the air and made a first down catch. Catch them homes too. Quick couldn't catch mahomes. He can't run. He's not a runner out. Go to Christian. McCaffrey went up. I looked at this point is is the centerpiece of the over hiding. Patrick Mahomes at the Super Bowl. You know what I remember Janney. You remember last year on that Sunday night game when Tom Brady had that seventeen yards ramble. And he's like Oh man we we care whether they're back look at their own. Save the game that would won the Game Luek No mercy thanks for listening to the undisputed podcast. I'm Johnny Taft. Join US again at the same time tomorrow morning. Nine thirty eastern. We'll see you then of more.

"Welcome to the football morning in America many podcasts for week seven of this NFL season. It is early Monday morning I was when I go to a place I don't get to watch is much football of all the other games that I normally safety of the rams while I was in the locker room in Atlanta on Sunday I just thought I'd bring you two or three me in the locker room in Atlanta a few lockers down from Jalen Ramsey with veteran rams safety eric how trades in the NFL are really on the increase have some stats in the column about that and title so Eric few feet away there's Jalen Ramsey a few days ago you had no idea to even be here tonight he plays thirty I would like to do and so it's always interesting to hear your reactions after column like this you know I wish I could the competitiveness the confidence that he brings not only on the field but on the sidelines and how he interest pulled off the deals I'm going to try something a little bit different in the in the mini pod today I talked to Eric Wedge to watch some of the New Orleans Chicago Game I just saw some highlights some low lights of Mitchell trubisky but as I sit here at three twenty and read some highlights to the column after that and I look forward to hearing your reaction because really had a really interesting time down there especially spending time with the Rams Coo Kevin off in rams general manager Les Snead who minutes just a couple of questions couple of snippets for my conversation with Eric Weddell and then I will get into the top of the column so here's actually how smart he is to be able to come in on you know three days really and be able to get in there and execute our calls and not really have any slip-ups a lot of you know put on myself to make sure he's lining up and knows what we're doing and be able to communicate it looked like mostly he he played man today and there were a few zone snaps it looked like I don't know what you guys are doing out there yeah I mean when we're in six snaps for you what did you see in Jalen Ramsey out there you can just the energy you know it was a great debut forum eric thanks a lot anytime so as I do every week I'm going to read the lead to my column highlight packages right now but in a week like this where I go somewhere and and go cover a game it's just difficult for me to see all the it's what happens when you're bringing guy like Jalen in in it affects way quarterback I mean guys are getting jammed up off the line it gives our rush time to get there and dateline Atlanta it should be obvious now is the rams feel the slings and arrows from around the league for five am I got the column down a little early this week as I sit here three twenty five am if I wasn't so tired I will be watching a few more they're games but anyway hope you enjoy the column today and let's start off with the lead to football morning in America October twenty one gorging on the president at the expense of the future what the identity of this franchise is they completed three trades in an afternoon in last week for goodness sake to involving pro bowl players and I can tell you it's not about the PSL's filling the new stadium next I mean it's a whole different dynamic when Nellie bring guy like Jalen who's probably the best cover man cover corner in the league then you had troy and roby who are last Tuesday when GM less need had completed two deals from his California office acquiring Offensive Lineman Austin Corbett from Cleveland Fort Lauderdale during the NFL's fall meeting rams owner Stan Kroenke and rams chief operating officer Kevin Dem off awaited word on the and in a larger sense about a sea change in how the new wave of general managers in team architects are approaching the sport right now ear or knee jerking a response to a three game losing streak it's about the personalities of the people who lead the team and and trading cornerback Marcus Peters to Baltimore he was working on a third snead and GM Dave Caldwell of Jacksonville the first two trades demo showed cranky the news not a bad afternoon's work for snead in his staff not this man players really at heart and changes the whole dynamic what you call it evens we'll bring more pressure would bring more Combo coverages role coverages that were playing man sticky covered so deals around four thirty PM eastern time snead and football VP. Tony Pass Stores Both Ping them off with details you were close to doing a mega trade for dissatisfied cornerback Jalen Ramsey of the Jaguars in a Ritz Carlton Ballroom in seasons of his rookie contract the rams are optimistic about signing him a long term but have no guarantee of employing Ramsey beyond the expiration of his enough cranky didn't pump a fist it's not his way anyway instead he has off about the unhappy Jaguar he wondered is the attracting fourteen months three trades and five hours now it was Saturday in the bar the teams buckhead hotel the on meaning coach Sean McVeigh isn't fearful the League is so fast moving it hasn't been this way forever for us but now we're going to value the and I and fourth round picks in twenty twenty one even though La is buying Ramsey for only the remaining one point five eight player over the potential of draft choice for a guy who'd been on the team for only four days Ramsey didn't seem like much we are this is what we do this is our belief as an organization Stan isn't fearful less isn't fearful and Shaw a newcomer in the thirty seven ten route of the pathetic falcons he didn't give the full Jalen but it was close he didn't start he came in what he did play in the regular scheme later and it appeared he played six or seven snaps in the rams zone coverage in all after EMC deal still in play it was in within an hour that was done to Ramsey for the rams first round pick in twenty twenty recovered but lost in scrum Ramsey also demonstrated why he's a cornerback so many receivers love to hate on against Jones he allowed four catches for sixty nine yards he used jarring hit on Devante Freeman to force a fumble that the rams should practices he played thirty six of the rams fifty three defensive snaps he was not a shutdown corner in coverage snap before Rams Falcons and often snead dissect it what the team had done and what it meant as dem off said this is early in dime packages only where he could match up against Julio Jones mostly in bump coverage in the left slot or wide right or rights law Ramsay didn't get one for taunting or Berating Julio Jones Ramsey's the classic case of a guy you hate when your team place him but you like his results when he's on your side I talk shit every game said Ramsey matter of factly and unapologetically in a short madhouse locker room scrum after the game in the upset of the week his back seemed just fine ext different occasions full-throated at Jones it's a wonder with the blizzard or flags in the League right now why when this was still a game in the second quarter in an eighth place sequence Jones beat Ramsey twice for significant players on Thursday evening then playing the Bengals at Wembley Stadium Sunday Combined Falcons bengals record colon it would really be scary out there Ramsey said good for Ramsey and not bragging about his game because it was a decent performance Ramsey overall he got the better of him but it was a good contest if I was really in my groove like on my shit war play a little bit different for a game at least always right with the rams after losing three straight this is a good it's that's it but maybe that's to be expected after three weeks off with an injury no one in Jacksonville believed was an injury I feel one in thirteen there's enough in what the rams are doing for book about how modern football is changing I don't have time for a book let's do cliff's notes the rams are not alone in bulking up on Trades Cleveland Baltimore Oakland I a quick slam from right to left for seventeen yards when Jones got inside Ramsey and sprinted toward the middle with a full stride on him then a simple gouraud down the right sideline gain of thirty nine Jones simply outrace Ramsey so jones didn't torture I bet that number ends up sixty five I've been thinking about it said Hall of fame GM Bill Polian but there's also a little bit of the old branch rickey in some of the newer GM's Ricky said the only title you can two thousand nine thirty nine trades in the calendar year involving fifty players seven enough without taking risks today the idea that you can make those decisions and change your team quickly is inculcated in this generation. I'm not sure that but it seems to be true personally I love that theory I think it's I played okay he said I've got to get my groove a little bit more there's maybe one maybe two plays I wanted to have back to the NFL this trade is a similar case to those NBA deals and I go on outliers season regarding trades but I doubt it with eight days to go before the deadline. CEO Times have changed in ten years win is the title you can win this year Polian then made a fascinating point he said he did Philadelphia and Pittsburgh Pittsburgh are dipping their toes in the pool more than they used to or more than their predecessors this could be now said snead and the trade data backs it up it's not just US bill belichick is great at it too benching Mitchell trubisky for chase Daniel now the Daniel is is necessarily superior but I just think the which they see this as being the NBA. I'll go where I WANNA go Ramsey Antonio Brown trade me and the hell with the consequences bears next week have the chargers at home I just think sending Mitchell trubisky out to take the boot it's a one the Chicago offense is a four alarm fire I encourage coach Matt Nagy to strongly consider I have no idea who would be right now especially because Patrick Mahomes might now only play twelve full games those were pro bowlers at least once two thousand nineteen fifty four trades with eight days left in the trading period league for a star Jolt and for a soft underbelly of the schedule The rams will stay in Atlanta to practice this week before overnighting to London when they have a whole he doesn't wait he attacks trades he takes chances to off pounds next the NBA is coming news and the slings and arrows of that crowd potentially could be hurtful for him long term I have a little section about the MVP and dead on why wait to fix the problem when you might get fired after two years when I told them off they were fascinated bill makes a great point about our Lee and I want to withhold final judgment but there are a few factors Miami's getting rid of players the rams are aggressive and I think players would leverage it'll leading up to week sixteen in Week Sixteen Al play Miami so just imagine this Golden Game December twenty this feels like trading has picked up and though the rams may be of the head of the pack they're not alone one GM told me over the weekend when I relayed those trading stats right a section about buffalo and their how much they struggled on Sunday trading is actually going on then I go into some other things I saw in week seven are observed in saw highlights But I would put these three players at the head of the class Russell Wilson Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson and as I write the feel the other night instead of being carted off thought it was very tough players on the team reacted accordingly I have a section evolving sixty nine players thirteen of them have been to at least one pearl that's a snapshot not a long-term study but the not many GM's thought about taking risks they were from generation where their parents might have grown up in the depression or remembered the depression life was hard Baltimore on Friday he flew back across the country from Baltimore to Seattle and then Sun so you don't know you might only missed two games he might miss a third we'll see Andy Reid gave him tremendous credit for walking off the maybe for about a thousand more words you can read it in my column today but not just look at the rams but a look at the rest of the NFL in how many sinn candidacy could get quite intriguing he's on pace to rush for one thousand three hundred seventeen yards which of course is insane I wanna be a curbstone psychologist but he said I think this generation GM's might be a little bit more transactional it used to be about Teddy Bridgewater who I just have so much admiration for he struggled his first two wins since replacing breeze longtime my awards section my favorite award was defensive player of the week Marcus Peters in his first game with Baltimore gene and he's on pace to have a passer rating of ninety four point one imagine rushing for more yards than Alvin Kamara kids at the middle school level who might normally not get much attention paid to them when they are Wilson. I wouldn't blame Marcus Peters if he wants to take a pretty good nap today just a couple of other things I want happen talk a little bit about Patrick Mahomes Adam Schefter reported on Sunday he may be out only three weeks or less who in south Florida Imagine Cincinnati Oh and fourteen at Miami Oh in fourteen it could but in the last three he's got a one point three passer rating

It's available wherever you get your podcast and it's a great listen I down which felt very reminiscent of the two thousand twelve through two thousand fourteen Ryan he had here with Lanta but again I was very critical of Dirk during the game because he did have this tendency I felt to continue to try to run up the Middle Perfect Austin Hooper eight targets a reception hundred seventeen yards touchdown perfect the next two top receiving I think there are things to be talked about in that regard but they certainly were not the issue this week and I know you know a lot of fans are going to look at Matt obviously the missed extra point looms large but thirty three plus points this feels like this is more about the defense and they found another way to lose another close game in in honestly at one in five this Falcons team feels like what they did on offense because you talked before the podcast and I think this is a great point that you made when your offense scores thirty plus points often scores thirty plus points that should be more than love to win the game and yet here they are thirty three points on top of that he had three three targets in he call three passes for thirty yards in two touchdowns the one being what would have been the game winner the defensive coordinator who also happens to be coach so let me Know Evan what you think about the offense and the responsibility to had in this heartbreaking losses for this team this year on the that's that's a pretty pretty tough thing to do with they've lots some games this year but and Devante Freeman they were committed to using him in both the run an passing game he he finished with nineteen carries for eight yards solid day in this week he did not screwed up the offense was what it needed to be to get the job done yeah it's funny options were were what they needed to be. Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley having over a combined hundred and fifty some yards and a touchdown Fridley oh he managed to put offense on the field that scored over thirty points for the second straight week so I still think there are issues with the offense when you look at it like what Matt Ryan did thirty thirty six three hundred and fifty six yards four touchdowns zero interceptions hundred and forty four point nine passer rating that actually came believe on the first Dr which was like the first touchdown the Falcons had all season dirt skinny past and again I'm on the point back to two thousand eighteen where we saw this happened a few times where the Falcons offense scored thirty points still managed to lose the game name the two of US rarely ever point out or draw attention to game yeah the I mean the offense did its job Pretty much focused on the players he should have been focusing on all season Ryan say he should have hit that extra point I agree you know you need your kicker to hit those but when you get to the point where referees in the game on average the play calls tend to balance out over the season but for the now I do want to touch on one thing because I know myself Dave Chote who is the editor at the foul colic we were talking about this during the floundering and yet they're still a lot of things in this game that happened that the that we need to talk about and I want to start with you have to have your kicker hit that thirty four point just to potentially force overtime something else has gone horribly wrong with that because the only way you could actually believe that was a first down is if you couldn't see that's the only way because if you have well you know what they saw they thought they saw Blah Blah Blah it doesn't matter what they thought they saw they were wrong he didn't touch him he he gave him a path this time I feel like this was easily one of the worst refereed games I've seen in recent memory they had You know a play call where the AH there appear to be a clear fumble by the receiver for The cardinals they called a phantom penalty on the Falcons are you doing the fouth member missed an extra point and yeah that's that's yeah yeah it's as as you know that they did lose they lost thirty four to thirty three and arguably one of the more have a referee official or former referee official blanking on his name but you'd all know if you saw him he came on in you know the rest of the game that led up to this point that you needed that extra point to begin with if you score thirty three points you should not be we look at that one play that stands out people say oh well Matt Brian should've hit it and we would be talking about the tie game and maybe going into overtime in never should've gotten to thirty four points doctor you think that these bad calls were in this game while they definitely were because as you mentioned the one on the Pie in the falcons actually you know everybody's he's never he's a former referee so he's never going to say the refs are blind the rest don't know what they're looking at bad call Blah Blah Blah he basically tight rope did on like going into a tie game you should be winning this game by three ten you know however many points in and I think that is the larger issue in this game is we look at this actually reach for he ran out of bounds with the ball at his hip I have if you go on twitter at Burchfield you can look at the picture for yourself clearly stepped out of bounds the balls at his hip talk about the map Brian Thing but the falcons were able to stop the cardinals they did stop them cuyler Murray should have been able to get the first down but he didn't look at the ball the do didn't see it would have been interference because you have to give him at least a a an like room to catch the ball Do Not oh you didn't okay we'll beasley basically was flagged for a Horse Collar which I'm not saying it's a wrong rule because apparently I saw earlier in the a good yard maybe away from a first down should be a fourth one which then you know if you wanna say the cardinals would Iran and got the first down enormous circumstances I really do believe that the reps do their best call it even those calls usually don't have a sway on the game but origin of the game on the punt in interfering with the point where our player wasn't even the punt returner how much mm-hmm fair I probably bet on that by it doesn't matter because the REF said they reviewed in said you know what this this is the first town in I don't know how they came away started backing away in then if bounced or whatever in the Ref saw as niece men didn't give him enough room to on the backside of their Jersey Kinda like hooked your hand inside and yanked him down that would be like a horse calling Beasley was able to grab Murray's if that makes sense of what they did what he did was as the ball was dropping to him usually that's what punt returners will do they'll see dropping to them in ref shouldn't be you know they have their jobs to officiate in it's getting to the point league-wide where reps aren't doing their job You know the yeah and I know it's something that I'm very hesitant under normal circumstances to bring up because Russell Wilson the Brown's got bit by when one of their defenders did it to Russell Wilson in that's why I thought was funny because it's like at that moment I was like well that's a weird back off on their own with their heads still up there forfeiting that they're not you know because he already waved his hand he wasn't going he was fair catching it but what he did was he someone on the plane they said he was interfered and he didn't even touch the guy in you can tell too because if you watch it in they usually factor in this but thirty four points by the defense is a big factor and I think the again with any NFL game you can at what point are they going to get to be where you can't even touch these quarterbacks I dunno it's secular in my opinion is ultimately the the main culprit here there's plenty there's plenty of blame to go around they'll get me wrong when you look at the final results I used to when I was growing up it was normal to see a quarterback holding everybody remembers that early do that play where Romo fumbled it trying to run game and that's what I thought was fascinating because I never heard of this apparently happened in offseason but now horse caller used to be if he grabbed I believe underneath the helmet or and that's a problem it's definitely a problem and again just to emphasize the I think we agree on this the Falcons defense is ultimate vision you could see that was not down into shame to see a game in like that the reps definitely played a big part of the the one they said who was at me you can easily see fourteen points in this game that were direct results of you know some of these flags got thrown or didn't get thrown mentioning that he hasn't had mad bosscher actually holding for him in a while to nine royal because Matt Shaab I believe did today which you know through dissect multiple place the game where there was dropped passes or you know poor play calls whatever it is but when you get to the point where you score thirty three the end zone or whatever on you know he didn't see starting quarterbacks you you'd see you know now you never see quarterbacks holding it in in the game I think it was Tennessee Games where Bosscher actually stranded I need to do research on it because I might actually be something worth looking at offense and you lose hesitant to put too much blame on on the offense were the people who are putting points on board so to return the ponder tax upon or whatever it's a bad call another bad call that pretty much just screwed the fountains yet the officiating was terrible today if there was something already in in the play so you know I think it's again I'm going to be A worth mentioning is I don't know anything about the kicking game I've said on previous editions of our podcast but it it may be well you can't tackle him by the name plate now what what does that even mean by his towel now gang unfortunately for kickers the memory is this stay strong so before we get into the second half of this podcast at this game the defense I think deserves the plurality of the blame can you blame Bryant for that Mis kick certainly he is he is tastefully named play in drag him down or like tackle him down or whatever they call dental worst caller so apparently that's a rule now earlier in the day I watched really make excuses but you know he gets hit like him and Julio Jones's Julio Jones Trump's a wide open touchdown like against the panthers we weren't kicking off the team because he didn't get married to I I'm not sure if you mentioned it but the Beasley one where they said it was a horse collar did you mention we talk about everything from cooking disasters to pro wrestling too unfashionable pants we warned middle school we also do talk about college football every now and then like mascot fights Yeah I don't know just sucked it happened in that moment you know 'cause everyone's GonNa obviously remember that so because it's like he's having different holders or whatever every week it seems like so I don't know maybe he did shake it completely I don't help but take a quick break we'll be right back check out the American Ninja Warrior podcasts for a behind the scenes look at all the action of the show and more with your competitors listening subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. Hey I'm Spencer Hall I'm Holly Anderson I'm Ryan Nanny I'm Jason Kirk and announcers fleeing the booth early and unfashionable pants that coaches where now if you want to take college football exactly as seriously as it should be taken subscribe for recall and then later on it's screw the Falcons so yeah that was another one a big one you know ticky tacky never heard of it but apparently it's a thing now which I mean you know tight end he had one catch for twenty one yards I'd like to see him more involved Luke stocker had one catch usually the punter but bosscher you know dealing with that injury and then went on I r so I think last week was what map wile or whatever was last week yes Riyan apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast APP and we're back on the alcohol post game podcast recapping the options he had a brilliant game I think it's easy to say that he was far from The reasons that we lost this game devante Freeman the Julio Jones eight receptions one hundred eight yards Calvin early four for forty eight and a touchdown and devante pull the in three receptions in two of those breather and it was just like a change of pace thing and then you know you saw finally saw Graham who we've we saw looking good in preseason he's our third offense on this game before we talk about the defense there's some issues about their number one Matt Ryan Thirty for thirty six three hundred fifty six yards four touchdowns no interest we're the hosts of the shutdown forecast avengers of college football podcast it says in the script to riff on what that means and basically what I mean is this all already spoiled every Tuesday mm-hmm You WanNa find out like why why did that happen you know flukes do happen even to the best of them so you know hopefully that's all it was anelle waiting for the fun is slowed by responses so nineteen eighty eight yards for four point six average he clearly had his best one of his best rushing games this entire season looked much much better the Atlanta Falcons visiting the Arizona Cardinals joining me as always is my co host and fellow writer at the alcohol. Evan Burchfield Evan maybe some worth looking at yeah I mean I think it's a fair point you know Matt Brian has been so consistent that I think he deserves at least the benefit of the doubt and going back and looking it was Kinda like a change of pace receiver he had three receptions twenty nine yards like they can they came when Julio was basically getting a breather Ridley was getting wrong in this game there's a lot but I want to recap real quickly for the podcast for those listening some of the statistics we saw from the Falcons her and then on the receiving side Austin Hooper lead with eight receptions for hundred seventeen yards and the touchdown I have him fantasy team thank you Mr Hooper Falcons thirty four to thirty three loss on the road to the Arizona cardinals in week six this is Dave Walker I'm here with Burchfield we're talking about the specifics of what went hesitant to throw Matt Bryant on the bus especially with how he's been for spur for sewing only one he should make don't let me take that you know you targeted one time it went for zero yards it was nice to see mcgarry have a reception nothing nothing the freemen barely have any carries you've got to commit you know that's the thing I think people forget with running backs you have to commit to you can't do this like split carry touchdown so a really good game for Freeman anyone stand out to you on offense that you think deserves special attention uh-huh Right now oh oh he actually was expecting it to happen well w yeah McGee in this cardinals game I I mean I liked seeing you know the usual the guys who should be used used by if the three yard game yeah his first career reception basically got popped up hit off a cardinals guy and he came back Elliot dive into it I thought the news role was like what I would love to see some news roby he kinda was like You know you've heard a change of pace backs from podcast if you want to but basically what mean w have been saying as like us these people don't like Ridley have one targeted a game take for native three yards and that was exciting yeah but I mean I just like seeing you know what I you know you can religion all these L. to I hate seeing Xiang getting in the way of wins weather it's exactly regardless of who it is season stuff because what we would see when it was freeman in Coleman was they would struggle you know obviously twenty six teams at something but they would struggle together like nobody neither of them would have like a solid rushing day but then one of them would be out for injury in either Kalman would go off or if it was free you guys all the way down the depth chart to to beat us whether it was Demeer Bird Trent Sherfield Max Williams new ways to let the other team beat us but it wasn't that they're number two receiver was beating us it was that for Murray he was finding chase edmunds he had multiple guys with receptions on this Falcons defense that kept their drives alive what is your takeaway much much better form and this game was easily one of the best he's had in recent memory so fantastic performance from him ESPEC- A statistic thirty for thirty six three fifty six four touchdowns receptions this should show you the quarterback wins is a stupid eighty seven for three hundred forty yards endo interceptions and no sacks again another quarterback that has a about what this cardinals offense did to this Dan Quinn lead defense yeah I think you mentioned it well how he was basically they had a clean pocket basically for the entire day again the rushing in it feels like they were better than this the card really when you consider that he was under pressure very large large portion of the game so with that the defense I those rushing Game David Johnson twelve carries thirty four yards. That was it chase edmunds five for thirty four it was really in the the receiver and then as you mentioned hooper has just had a career season he really like he's really wanting to get paid and good for him would you need from your running back in I'm glad they didn't like Goo shy away from him. Ito Smith had three carries that's fine It was good to see Freeman back because he has taken a lot I'm hesitant to talk about them because of what happened I want to talk first about what column early Cuyler Murray did to defense he went twenty seven hunting season but going into this game the cardinals are literally the worst defense against tight ends in Hooper did his job aid targets eight receptions hundred seventeen yards ask games like AJ Brown how he went off in will fuller obviously instead of just using that second guy which would have been bird or maybe Sherfield he flack I've even been critical of because there was times this year where just looked rough he had a solid day you know any would have been the yeah I said go you know not to toot my own horn here but going into this game I was saying I mean I was saying hooper was gonNA have Assan year combined a bunch of dudes in spread it out to all these other guys that I think that's Charles Clay who had two receptions like I thought he was stolen the bills thirty points that should be winnable but our defenses allowing you know gone allow more than thirty points a game you're going to lose the game that's just you know l. goes and I I mean I don't think in the NFL today you can give up over thirty points channel no one more you can expect probably good for him yeah absolutely and I think again for those who count QB wins but he got it to enough guys I mean they had looking at their stats here they had three guys go over sixty yards receiving and then they had three guys over thirty he was gonNA play football again and then all of a sudden on the cardinals I had no idea chase edmunds you. Know he got his in the receiving game Geek he basically you know our field had one for thirty eight at they didn't I think the big story in this game with the defense it wasn't like last week their funding number one the defense is finding Zain's before you start writing the history book on them but regardless rookie QB rookie head coach a team that has struggled this year you know I think Colin Murray he showed enough today where I was like you know that's solid and stuff but there were so many missed opportunities where the falcons just calling the shots that many people thought would be a a much better defense and if anything what we have seen that's a solid day for Kyle Mary Mariota you know we were talking about in the solid day he had he got benched today against the Denver Broncos did stupid statistic please drop it and Matt Ryan Is Still Good Matt Ryan is still good he he since the grabbing people who I didn't even know it was on the team like Phero Cooper he was the one who played for the rams and I believe he was at a guy that got shot in light it wasn't even sure ah shut him he's ordering this season off pretty rough but I would say we're to pass a two and a half games he has been in less several weeks is this is a criminally bad defense and I believe this point we're outpacing yes and it wasn't one receiver fitzgerald had six for sixty nine David Johnson had six hundred sixty eight bird had to for sixty trencher the two thousand seventeen to eighteen defense which was injury riddled which was missing many key players we are outpacing that defense from points per dion Jones have missed tackle and I think fans were ready to set him on fire so figure that one out eh you know on

Hey everybody doing this but williamson. Black Friday is our podcast. Well, tough one. What are you GonNa do I mean? Stuff happens they lost. Derek Carr said after game today. We're we'll be just fine. I tend to believe him. I. Think. That's Fine. They be patriots better. Team. They got pretty good in the second half. Happens for two and one. Now. The key is. They gotta get five three and two at the by. It's going to be tough. You got. Buffalo's three. Oh Playing Las Vegas next week. Josh Allen. Say What are you want about? Josh Josh Allen MVP? Candidate. So that's not going to be easy. Was Good. They had a blue big lead today twenty eight to three and came back and one. Hell. Of A game gets the rams. They were Kansas City review the raiders in week five. So you can't see to turn into two and three you can't. So they gotta find a way to win one of these next two games that's the that's the takeaway after this game. You move on. Yeah you know and this game. I mean. There's not a mystery of what happened today. Jon Gruden have a hard time figuring out what to talk to his team about the raiders have a formula. A formula to win. Run the ball. Get the bottom dweller be efficient. Don't make turnovers don't stupid penalties. Knowing that stuff happened in this game? and. They lost their three t they had six penalties untimely ones. Six penalties in its whole isn't that much. They only had six games combined, but it seemed like there there were bad penalties you know. And then. Three Fumbles Derek Carr has twenty six fumbles in his career lost. Corn Espn. That's the most in the. NFL. In that timespans he started playing. He's got hold on that bowl. One fumble. That was bad call. Didn't change the game though and. I don't think you can say. The raise one the game at that didn't happen. They got the ball rebecca turnover. So. You know. Waller I. Don't think. while. We're getting get. A target until the third quarter didn't catch the ball until four minutes remained. I I don't I know what the Patriots Day double team they really made him the focal point. But I don't think the NFL has caught up or figured out during Waller I think the biggest problem is he's injured. He had a knee injury. So let's get him healthy and I think he'll be fine. Copycat League who course? So, other teams may do. What the Patriots did to our but I think he's going to be fine and hey, when you guys constantly double team, that's more opportunities for other people. So They're GONNA be banner. Banged. Up. You know rugs that was a surprise nobody Trent Brown Jean Cuneo know. Nick Kaos key. Today. Gaming our net guy. Hurt. Brian Edwards got hurt. Rosca hurt Rico graphic got hurt I don't know how serious are. But You know there's a lot of injuries. So just you know fly back to Vegas have a good week of practice. Get healthy as possible and and see what happens. The season is not the end of the world after this loss it really. Is. Not. Now the defense, the divas, a problem. It I expected to get better and it pretty well in the first half I mean excuse me in the first quarter really well. But they give up two hundred seventeen yards rushing first recruiters. Rex burkhead Blake. You know how fame? Come on, make some plays please. The defense was bad in the first two games. But winning is a beautiful perfume. So the stink wasn't bad. Well, the stink was lousy today it was future. Giving up thirty. Points game. There to one and they gave up more than a scored. They got to. The God play better and even in simple as making plays not enough people are making enough plays. Cory Littleton I wrote about him the other day. Some fans are a little harder. You know like Whoa it's only been two games. Yeah. But you know what? He hasn't made many tackles. Not Making enough plays. He misses nick for sure but you know that's the way it goes. Sky Make more plays paying a lot of money. John of neighboring who's been good at it didn't have a good game today. ME. Collins. Where is he? Where's the pass rush? Yeah. Maximum to Saturday and that's great. But. I want. Consistency. Just, not enough plays being made by the defense simple as that and they said they got faster and they said they got better and they said they can you know really win with his defense will go do it or get fired Paul counter. Trying to be rude but let's see some real improvement. I don't like talk. Get it done. The defense is a problem. and you're not gonNA go and win against Bill Belichick. If, the defense is a sieve. They can you know just run out the clock on the run? And you'RE GONNA mcdumber stakes on offense. That's not gonNA work 'cause team. That's again this team has a formula to same former they had last year. It same thing this year and it worked in the first two weeks. It's GonNa work again, a lot. This isn't a bad team. But the defense has play better. And what I like, when things I like about this team is that It is deep waller. Again wasn't much of a factor. Running. Game. Judge Jacobs ran hard and he had some nice carries. But he's banged up two. Hundred renfro comes through six catches eighty four yard touchdown. You know they got their deep. Their. Deep. Henry rugs is GonNa get healthy he's going to help. Aguilar prayed. Fifty snaps today Maurice Hurst played more steps. This week he played thirty snaps he seemed to he was moving around. That will be good especially in the first quarter. Thing I like Foster Monroe. WHO had a touchdown? He had fifteen snaps. I. WanNa. See Him get more playing time. So. Again. Lousy Day but not the end of the world, not the end of the world. was wanted to just looking at a bunch of notes. Y-. McMillan played started over more of a moral. You know more played. joyner was. Back and forth. Edwards had a nice running catch. Got Her. Book on Him in college our time staying healthy. Hopefully, this isn't a big injury. We this isn't serious. They didn't convert on third down the raiders and I five times. That's not good. They went for four red zone everything that they did good. The first two weeks dating do give this week. Again. Losing sucks it's no fun but they lost to a pretty good team on the road and stuff happens again. You gotTA. Win One of the next two games. That's why I'm going to be harping on my crazy. And they win next week against Buffalo Missouri okay. Let's go. Let's go to four and one. If they. Lose to buffalo you better, be gin sitting. So my biggest worry any of this is just the defense. He got get better guys. You gotta make some plays. So. There you go. That's a quick show. You probably don't WanNa. Hear me much day. anyways. So have a great weekend rest of your weekend. Be Safe. Be Happy. Be Back Tuesday. Night with a preview, the buffalo bills, and we'll see if those barriers can't go to three in one. All right. We'll see later take care of be saved. Be Happy.
Matt Minich's Bengals Chalk Talk: Running Back Season Preview
"I. Don't I sound. So at big points, a screaming night, WanNa mess with us a joke guy to one, you won a jesuit the battles company. You won't get a few seconds to. Everybody, this is Matt from since he joined us today, we're going to continue on. Talking about the bengals twenty twenty season position by position reviewing what to expect from each group, this season and today, it is all about the running backs and in Cincinnati old other running backs is all about one guy. All right. It's all you'll mix Joe Mixing One, the AFC rushing title in twenty eighteen last year. The bengals offense struggled the first half of the season mixing and the running game struggle in the. The first half of the season to do much of anything. But then they came and they retooled the scheme right in particular running a lot more tossed play. But overall pulling man scheme blocking plays in general, they ran quite a bit more of and mixing went off in the second half of the year. All right, eight, hundred and seventeen yards in the last eight games of the season despite. Having a slow start finish, very strong and had similar final numbers to what he had the year before right, and despite all of this mixing just does not get the respect. He deserves. All right. This is a top running back who is rarely mentioned. Along with those other top guys. So knocking the respect will, what is that? A that comes with being on teams that that are one. All right at the end of the day when you win. On National TV, people start paying attention you get respect and we see it all the time you got to win. To get. Love. Excellent. Last tale half of the year These toss plays, he's speed, he can You can see the cutbacks. Right also has great power. So really all around back and we should expect more out of this guy with a rookie quarterback, right as much as they leaned on the run game, the tail half last year, expect them to lean Har- on that running game as with Reagan Joe Borough this season particularly early in the year worried a see a lot of Joe Mixon running the football so. He's going to have opportunities right and having borough. There is going to create some better running situations for him. Right. There is that fear with Joe Borough and in Aj Green. and John, Ross, and it's And all other guys, t higgins on the field. There is a fear of that. Passing game will open up opportunities for the running game. Who is here by a player. You know, run the ball quack pass it. Kinda works both was right if there's a threat. To be able to to really air it out into. Do some things in the past game that opens a thanks for running as well. Everything in football is is complementary No Man is Nihil. Nothing about mixing. He is an extremely underrated pass catcher. This dude can do some things in the past game and really been under utilize. All right. But when you look at him at Oklahoma, he made some great place. He can adjust the ball on the air. Stopping, you know, stop a starting in rouse, go up and get the ball. All kinds of adjustments does a really good things or just catching stride, take it right up the scene. I mean this do can do some things in the past. King. Underutilized, in the past could to be different this year. Or maybe right which we talk about. The bengals running more empty the season alright there's addicts dictation because we saw a lot of empty with Joe Borough, and Lsu last year. But guess what? When, Ilisu Rennet? Eleven personnel, right. That's what the Bengals to be as well. So we could very well see more empty, and when we do this, probably going to be with a tight end and a running back on field. So absolutely, there's a good chance of getting more utilization, right more utility out of mixing in that spot. He's really underrated in that area conducive. Really good things. They're now talking about running backs that do all the past game, we'll talk about Geo. Giovanni Bernard, he's seen as a third down back but he has played a larger role in the past. And He split time with me Hill split time with Joe Mixing but two years ago he was injured. Miss ignificant time last year. They really relegated him more to the third down back rule and made mixing the feature back so. What's the plan because they gave him an extension to gave more money sticker out and obviously what does it what they did with your a- definitely has some value, but it makes you wonder. Is there a plan to do more with them to have more involvement were. They cannot let him chill get completely healthy last year that didn't WanNa push were them, and now there's going to be a bigger role. Could we seem worth of the two on the field to get it again, they love in personnel. But Hey, let's get into more twenty. One personnel were twenty personnel and use go or Mixson. Aren't us one of them out there as a receiver mixing? All right can do it. We talked about that. We know go can do it. All right. Jill has got very good hands and he's a really good blocker, right? That's the big thing about him despite his is is he understands pass protection are he's a tough do they can get in there and block as well? which is both thinking valued at the receiver position. Especially, you look at this bengals team. They, love to get him. Those bunch looks to have those receivers digging out blocks. Can. Block right Gio can be that guy just you know the same way that they're using these receivers heavily involved and important in the running scheme. He can do all that stuff plus he's a different kind of receiver, right? Because he was smaller guys quick. Quick Guy. He gives them a little bit of a different dimension at the receiver position. So. You know why not more right, one out more of the two of them on the field together gives you different options and makes you a little bit less predictable and gives him some different guys in there and a different look i. really that's what you're getting. With Jia. There, you're getting a different look than in, you're getting with other guys in the field. All right. Now that brings us to the second year. Guys are the two other guys talk about are Rodney Anderson and Trivia John Williams now talk about Rodney. Anderson, I and people talk about I is at first. But let's forget dreaming out Williams's drafted first trivial. Williams is a very, very good football put or what Rodney Anderson Common often injury in Oklahoma guy just like Joe Mixon has some similarities to mix it. He's got power. He's got speed. He's got balanced. He has got the talent of a feature back. Watt. Injuries are major concerned with him. All right. So No, can he stay healthy? That's the big question, but this guy is an ideal backup to mixing because he can do all the same things. So wasn't mean for Geo. Gio has his own role. can play a larger role if Mixon's out, but. Anderson will play a key part there as well, and then Trayvon Williams is the ideal backup for a guy like Geo. He is a very good rusher but. Excellent. At all the same things, the GIO is good that he has got. Awesome hands, right. Natural hands. Now, there's a difference here, right? Not every running back that catches a lot of passes. Right? Is it necessarily has natural hands number every receiving the NFL surly Najer, right? This dude catches passes like his breathing, right? It looks like it's nothing for awesome in pass protection that is rare to find on college. But this dude, I'm telling you this dude can do it. Great Pass Protector. Look Jim. Turner was the the line coach of this guy's college drafted, right? Something are the coach is going to repeat appreciate the running back who is excellent in pass protection Last year recording offers a stat play. Most special teams didn't really gain their. Here's the thing would. Pass I. think that's probably biggest value because it really makes them standout path protecting his heart, and that's a big part of the adjustment y. you don't always see running backs as like the feature you See a ton of them are as much as you respect on a field as rookie sometimes. Ought has because of the past protection are because they're not crested in past prediction yet. So even though he was very good at knowing experience with Jim Turner in the, you know the blocking schemes used to. Stuff takes some adjustment so. That's the way I see this group. All right. I see. One as starter, mixing one be started GIO and won't be be may not have a bigger role was warning. Right. But that's how I see it and I see Rodney Anderson as to way intriguing are Williams as to be. So it's GonNa be very interesting to see how this position breaks down mix GonNa be the feature guy. Will we Seymour Geel? Will we see a little bit more of these guys in year two with a healthy Anderson and with Williams, more comfortable, more familiar with blocking schemes? So that's it for the running back group keep tuning in to keep up in these outgoing position by position, breaking down and preparing for the twenty twenty season. Crowd.

Every religion eventually comes around all the same ideas you're the sims and you're just trapped in the pool never getting out on banner society dot com a week ago. Something like that. Banner society is a website of some type of ryan. Nanny wrote last week about whether the ringing hershey's kisses in the christmas commercial that one commercial you know the one engage with the abraham acc- faiths on a cognitive level. You should check it out. I argue that they do not hollywood but that they must I would like to know any of you got anything cool for christmas. I got a bomb that knocked out internet and my city for like two days and what you do with it was that cooler. No y- it was. It was not. I would say cool. But i felt i felt all my worries leave today. When driving along the highway i saw the surest sign that like things were going to get back to normal here and that was a man parked on the side of the highway not particularly hidden behind his car or anything else just with his checkout peasant in the middle of the day and that was strong stone built on dog. That's right well. If you saw the man's dick that means it was not mike. Vrabel of course had his removed as season soup for super bowl purposes correct. It was not able. Oh you promiscuous or whatever whatever it was it's never mind. That's not what i thought we were talking about. Okay i would. Also it's not really nashville until you see a cop. Shoot deer on the side of the road if it listen. I don't care harding place. A buck shows up. And i got my license is going down okay. It ain't a reckless discharge of a firearm. Because i know where the bullet's going and so soon we'll the deer. Yeah that that didn't happen to me today. But now. I've heard i've heard multiple accounts of metro. Police officers being summoned to the scene to of a deer who has been hit. But isn't quite dead in nashville. All right and and just dispatching on the side of the road. I think that's neighborly. Like not isolated places either like like next to the mall right like seventy cool. Call the franklin pd. And they're like well. It's very take care of this right here. Junior kind of send mesler can't have in hayden galleria there surly. They'll think they own the place. Do you know what i found out was headquartered in cool springs recently service merchandise really not not still as of two thousand and two that shit is dead but for awhile. That's where it called home. Builder's still remains Of service merchandise. Yeah have we snuffed it out or no. I think according to wikipedia puts it died like twenty years ago. It's there's not like a rogue nomad around service merchandise. Yeah yeah i guess so spencer. Don't you have a service merchandise story. i don't now that's podcasting broadcasting and this is what it's like all the time now. You know that this podcast is that was. This is playoff. This is purgatory raid content right now. So here's the thing. The thing that i'm gonna say is probably gonna make it worse. I am convinced that. I know somebody who bought their wedding ring. It service merchandise. And i just assumed that was you. That could be right because service merchandise even on. It's on the way down was still a major jewelry pro. I don't know why read like a lot about service merchandise. Yes no. I do know why it's because we had no internet and this was the only thing my phone would load with wine bar and i read the whole fucking wicky because i wasn't gonna loaded new page kidney does this. I wonder if this means you got your phone at service merchandise. And it's like it's like if you get online at the airport sometimes and some shitty cities it's like. Here's here's a webpage about our city and you get to read. Here's here's airport map you get cookie be fuck i did. Actually i did get my wedding ring. That service merchandise wait. Wait wait act wow no. I didn't think it was that interesting story. i was like. Oh somebody's got some sort of really way more interesting story than i got my wedding ring and service merchandise i think you're the ranking service merchant here like when nicholas nicholas cage needs. Somebody needs artifacts to revive the soul of service merchandise in national treasure seven. He's gonna find me relic understands merchandise catalog. Do you understand how to use the in-store computer. you do. Run on fortran. No they listen man. This is how service merchandise work. Because i didn't remember. Because i was a child i you walked in the store and the hand you carbon copy paper and they were like go round and write down everything and then bring them to bring to the cash register you will get like a slip and then go wait for your shit at the conveyor belt. That was constant best. Buy kia yes. It's like walking inside. Amazon dot com. And then they replaced that with. Hey we'll put computer stations throughout the service merchandise that you can manually input your order and then go pay for it and then go wait for it a buffet. What restaurant this is. This is this is luby's or piccadilly yes correct. Yeah and i will tell you some overlapping demography happening there. Okay some overlapping customer bases. I guarantee my grandpa spent many sunday back and forth between piccadilly and service merchandise my abiding memory of service merchandise is my little brother charging up to the customer service dusk standing in line and waiting in that line to tell them that they had mistakenly used an apostrophe on their sign in a plural he was like a fucking get him play. Oh line and you know you can some say. That's when we knew sparta's people on the team. Smartest people on the team. So ryan got a bomb graduations. Thanks hollywood you get anything. Cool i got vivian. Howard's new book which michael felder and i are going to be cooking our way through on that other fight. Img podcast the name of which completely as dirt even though all the fucking time man on the dirt. How're you doing this in front of like one of the hosts of said show well. I'm playing donkey kong country. Which doesn't help you get to be me tonight. Our though you get to be half me which which have the clean half but forgetful clean but forgetful but yeah you got that i got million howard's new book on all my things are books I got a book on the history of pockets in women's clothing. Shut up and i go on the history of salad. I am not making my case any stronger. We're no the answer. Is i got nothing cool for christmas and it was fantastic. Thank now asking so these are two history book salad and pockets far back. Do they go. i haven't started either of them Perfection salad is the salad book. It is in the fifties and it's The anyway i'm going to start talking about it and you're gonna regret this. The in the history of salad has a lot of parallels to like the history of design and architecture in america and then the history of pockets in america clothing is basically the history of like class and labor right because for a very long time. Only it's like you know now how the president doesn't care carry keys in wallet and whatnot. Yeah because he has people to do that for them. Well that's that's how it was for rich people for a long time right like why would you need to carry shit. You have people to carry that for you. So is there is opening sentence like the pocket was discovered in the year. whatever. I'm going to report back at length on this but it used pockets. Used to be a like it was called a pocket but it looks like a purse. It's like a little flap of fabric. You so into a little bag on a string and you had tight around your waist with your apron right so like the pocket was portable. I- fanny packs really predated. Pockets is what i'm betting. No i got nothing cool for christmas. Wise what you're describing is like what i picture robin hood like cutting off of the sheriff of nottingham sways. Yes yes it kind of looked like that. It had really long strings. You could wind it around your waist a couple of times. Yeah that's so you could literally pick somebody's pocket Wow fanny pack. I think the last president to carry anything in his pocket was lbj and he carried a knife because cigarettes. You probably i think lbj just assumed that as president he was basically like king bouncer for the united states and like he would one day have to physically fight the leader of another country over an important issue right. Like well you you this canal. Sorry you're gonna have and got this roller quarters. It says otherwise. If you ask and you say hey what you got your pocket. he's gonna make a joke about his. Dick need extra pants from a knife. And also my penis which i will also use in combat like the baton was. It's never mind every every possible. Question from here is disturbing on a level that we're not really ready for jason. What did you get for christmas. I'm realizing i might be among. Because i got books about god candles and european beer. That's like a trappist monk. Basically you get the message. Oh wait actually. Let's go a little bit north because they also got assassin's creed valhalla. And i spent this the morning dedicating fallen. Fallen souls odin. So that's that's fantastic. Do you have to do any of the dumb parts. Where actually in modern time. Not yet there was one part where it was like it was like hang on. We're losing control. dna email. And i'm like nope. nope skip. Skip scale the lamest part of every assassin's creed game is that you have to go here. Actually in some sort of weird no. Just give you the part where i like. Give me the part where to spend ten minutes reading emails over people's shoulders. Yes here comes. Here comes the damn hologram and i'm like no that shit out on my site.

We'll be running around these two women who immediately bonded over their shared flirty in this spent the entire time talking about pin worms. Which if you do not live in florida you won't be real familiar with. Yes maybe you should explain worms or ryan Their little worms. That if you play around in dirty water which everyone in florida does child. They'll live in your but they'll live in your but anyway that's the thing to talk about naked in a giant bathing chamber of strangers. Pin worms will not be an important part of gte bristol dj. Johnson city final stage. By the way you unlock as copperhead road. That's had roads a final. What will pay. Steve earle for the music. Because dan it'd be bad ass anyway called copperhead road.

Which is very funny. Ryan knows about this. Because ryan and i had an extended conversation over whether or not i should get this for godfrey. I'm terrible at exact wording. So you're going to have to help me with exact. Wording of the and stuff a mug with a photograph of garfield in a cowboy a photograph a drawing of garfield a cowboy hat. And the mug says underneath it in the garfield font. I don't know if i'm gonna get to heaven. 'cause they never let cowboys in positive. The existence of some desperado garfield universe so ryan crawl correctly. Ryan keep me honest here. We settled on giving this dispenser because it kind of looks like it. Looks like spencer.

You have this right friends with just likes broker. All there is important football news to get to. And but i we have to talk about ancient fried chicken because i think that is the most pay.

Food to roman passer-by known as term opole eum latin. For hot drinks counter. The shop was discovered in the archaeological parks radio five site which is not yet open to the public traces of the two thousand year old food in some founded some of the deep terra cotta jars contained hot food that the shopkeeper lowered into a counter with circular holes the main fresco on the front. This is what we're geeked about shows. A chicken has to saying it upside down but it's got a chicken right there on the front had a chicken. Seen y'all there's also a dog on a leash which is sad. I think the leashes that makes it sad. I'm just too busy imagining church's chicken spelled with vs. What's wrong with. What's i mean what's wrong with people like. Hey you can bring your dog but you got control it because like we got good chicken here. The dogs love. Why would it be on the leash. Then 'cause it's on the it's on the menu board next to the chicken and the two. It's not no no so you think that sign is saying okay. Welcome here. I think i think saying lease your dog yeah. I like church's chicken a lot because this is literally before shirts. Yeah oh wait wait wait one more one more packs case they were like well the i mean think about it this is this is a well established script we got we learned from them you know they conquered us damn this chicken's good.

Or i'm gonna have to take it to the what's it called the termidor him. Yeah we're going to have to take down to the perimeter matola cheese.

Berg of the piedmont. Remember when you say hey. Has any city have ever had to be taken over by the feds. Because the whole thing was mobbed up. Yeah phoenix city alabama. Yo i used to live directly across the river from phoenix city thinks that he was wild. Yeah phoenix city. Sits right on. The georgia bama border for those of you. Who don't know it is the alabamian counterpart to columbus georgia. It's the anti columbus not as anti columbus columbus. I have a feeling state lines used to mean way more. Oh they did especially back when One side was dry. One side was not like when you could just go over and be like oh man. I can't do anything he walked over to. Alabama is like a totally different country over there. Now it's like no we'll just follow you. We'll just we'll just go and get you. You can't hide over there. Has anyone by the way as anyone actually watched a ball game one. Yeah part parts of them. But yeah i watched I watched carolina shanta clears. I looked on the beach chickens but for the most part that game depressed me i did watch the beach chickens versus you know liberty. That game was great because he frees looked really stupid. So i don't i. I don't need to acknowledge the outcome to you. Know hugh freeze look really dumb. Yeah it was. It was really the outcome on the scoreboard that i was objecting. To also coastal carolina's wide receivers were held onto st place. Yeah that's all yeah. Little hansie their liberty. Y- leave room for the lord liberty. That was close. This is happening on an macau's watch by the bed before he's familiar with a places that frown on dancing That's right actually. That is weird because the worst single like red zone finish ever seen prior to the game between coastal carolina list also baptist baylor yay also featured an employer via mccaw featured baylor university and head coach. Kevin steele who i know went onto no major jobs after that because that was when baylor tried to win its first game against its first game in like i can't remember how many games like twenty or thirty games like they were on a ferocious losing streak baylor one thousand nine hundred ninety nine And it was against someone bad to rice lovie. It was an lv man. It was like the worst possible. Yeah it was one thousand nine hundred and baylor was leading twenty four twenty and baylor had the ball and this was with six minutes left or knows it was absorb much less time than that. They were trying to run out the clock with less than twenty seconds left and rather the ticket ticketing they handed it off and he fumbled and then and unlv play around the ball all the way back all the way back for a game winning touchdown. Twenty seven twenty four and then like i said kevin steele never got a job again. This is one of those stories where this is not the point but it is helpful for me to remember. How much of conferences are a social construct. Like baylor playing. Unlv just like they normally did because this is what we used to think of baylor as and then all of a sudden anne rice etc decided that they were not not and rice. Jesus christ i back story vampire. Lestat went to baylor. I mean that's vampire bears. We gave them too much. Dr pepper and turned into a vampire there. Also playable characters. Yeah yeah that's the where panthers of tarrant county vampire bear ursus garfield vampires and baptist. Neither of them can show a lot of scan outside. That's this quote from kevin steele. By the way that's incredible. Which is it was just stupid. On my part we were trying to create attitude of toughness and we tried to hammer it in. How's he doing house. They're doing cancun. I think so someone who has a overseeing the ending of game. that accumulated that much bullshit. I think i see why auburn likes this guy. That is a man comfortable with diving in too bad ideas and chaos and that is what you need to succeed at. Auburn scher sam. Character from event horizon turned the job down. Yeah i've got my eyes on other jobs. I'm happy where i am. The we're recruiting. Do you see how pretty this town is. Lovely beautiful i do. I do really. It is a bummer. Is a bummer. But like i can't coastal so-called this year that i didn't even realize that their offense was called -til team six six players guys. It's all we need that. This is a lesson to every football program. Lean in lean into it. Whatever it is what you guys have -til uniforms jammed right. It's teal teal cooks lane and would also be good advice. Celebrity on the goal line leaning toni. Lean one way or the other. Don't just stand. And when we say that we are of course making fun of the coaches who oversaw that situation. It's ultimately their fault because hugh freeze pillar assault situation dollar back. Yeah no this is on the coaches because they couldn't figure out how to take a knee right. That doesn't speak well of them. That's yeah exactly. When since. When does the christian school have problem taking a knee. Ain't xiaobin at chapel simple enough. Don't between one thing or another. Do not be lukewarm. For the lord will spit you out or more appropriately. The ball into the hands of coastal carolina. Who really really could have won. The game and did just did did well. Let's give them that twelve. Congratulations we just decided you want. We're not giving that to liberty way. It actually is. I've decided to actually funnier. If coastal has decided fuck the ballgame game. Where we're we're counting. The loss edward calling ourselves national champs. Yeah doesn't matter. Yeah yeah who says they gotta go into feed we with one loss. We used to award the national championship before bulls before the bulls were even played right that. So there's there's a historical basis. Go look how many i think it's it's something like fifteen power conference teams claimed titles from years which they lost ballgames. Why can't do that. I'm also reminded that i. I seem to recall in previous years when when we always have extended discussions about how how we would revamp the bowl system. If we ran the zoo. I seem to remember a strong consensus even before. This weird as backward up ended here four returning to the system of the sixties and seventies where everyone where they're all just invitationals are now like this. We were i feel. I have a very strong memory. That i can't pull from directly. Got one of y'all right. There's i can't remember. But i seem to remember discussion that we've all had previously and which we're like. Yeah returning to. This system would be fine and save everyone a lot of yelling the to think the two ideas. I always come back to one blog with godfrey which was if we wanna do play off then. Save the ball's moving them all to week. One which that would rule for lotteries and the other is. Yeah i mean that would then then you get both best of both worlds week. Ones awesome warm weather. Which more places can have bowls that people actually want to go to. There's that and then the. If i was in charge we do a big old bullshit. Bowl season eighty bowls. Fine eight hundred balls keep them coming but then there would be one extra at the very after audibles that's title game and if like for some reason number two team doesn't wanna play or whatever great number one we don't even have to have it. Number one team is an estrogen. I encourage coastal to play another game. They want to. There's there's time. Yeah just call san jose state news just hoping today. Oh shit what happened. Missouri has twenty cent cova cases and will not be bending. Don't call missouri iowa. That's right call. Army keeps getting knocked out. We gotta get army back in their let army play. Let's jose and then call yourselves. National teams would be like. Hey listen we had a tough loss vs liberty couple. Things didn't go our way. It's a good team. But i don't think we're out of contention yet. I i will say if you play army. The till team six thing it will be. Yeah yeah you might wanna dial so. I would like to know technically the emails that's navy. Coastal carolina coastal carolina by name by definition does lay claim to the seizure. That's now that's scribe at tiers. These are these are merchant marines writer white merchant marine or something different heights. Are we talking about pirates. Privateers sir pleased the if fcs playing in the spring which is still happening. I don't even know it is okay. I'm literally wearing an f. c. T. shirt right now like the playoffs are scheduled for april. I think it's stupid. I hate that this should get it done well before the draft. That's like just went. Fcs players drafted but why can't coastal just roll into that show up. Just keep going. Just try and go like what can they go something in one. That's a national champ record fair. I'm looking forward to some montana team playing in a foot and a half of snow on the field and loving it again again. Yeah even worse like what is it august with. I'm just wondering what effective plays you have their right. Could you actually scoot someone along like listen. We're just gonna use you as a toboggan. We'll get we'll get there. This feels got crown on it. It's downhill from god. Yes listen mapa liam's open you guys are playing all right. that's right.

It always bands leading about a civic event. It's like yeah it's always bad behavior out are you. Are you like me in that. You were triggered by the by the appearance of this of this pizza into thinking about. Scott walker's veggie pizza correct. Yes okay well. It's it's kitchen scott walker said. Hey who's scott walker first of all because it's not like people know any zip former governor of wisconsin absolute and the first person to dropbacks sixteen republican primary. This all his fault pretty much quieter. Yeah like he but yeah he. He dropped out real early when people were saying things to him like a fish person probably because he had to eat food on the campaign trail and he was like can you make it more melting in gross dog. You know there are people who are very gifted at taking photos of food on instagram to make it look absolutely sumptuous and then there's the opposite of that scott walker who could take a picture of a meal at the french laundry and make it look like cat fom. He's like if vincent enough rose character for men in black decided to be a food. Inst- grammar yeah. Yes grew water for today. He's wearing people suit. Earn choose veggie pizza like this is every republican politician. Yeah but not walker. John cornyn brisket the main with the plato firewood. But we'll wait. We haven't gotten to the point where scott walker's particular pizza graham. This time with special. Yeah because in that it was a classic. Yeah because he said oh yeah. Good scrape pizzas picture of. I mean he makes it look like shit. Even though he's not the one taking it. I just assumed that his presence at least identifiably pizza unlike his veggie pizza. Yeah but it's not just that pizza that he was like. Hey we're a great pizza. Let's fort local restaurants use in this like you know like on christmas and it's not that it's that scott walker used a photo of a pizza that he had eaten a year earlier and just cropped it. He's cropped everybody out of it so that his friends friends who live here laughing and having a good time out of frame just out of frame also the significant pieces of legislation passed are also here just out of frame laughing having a good time. Yeah he just just like this is. This is worse. Than the time he had a bunch of undercooked and Improperly cooked meats on shishkabob right kebabs on his career. Let's say grilling out. And there's like a visibly raw chicken in the middle Yeah next onion. That won't cook for another. You know ten minutes but you know. I like my chicken raw because i'm barely human jerker parents. Is it possible. It is the same pizza. It just had a lot of preservatives in it like a mcdonald's hamburger at a bunker like pompeii pizza. Yeah in twinkie. Pizza a pizza. I just like the john's pumping pumping. Oh my god. The pump eighty bird original. A little caesars suv was hot and ready. Man it's ready to go. Yeah i just like the brain slopped goes into. Maybe i did eat the same pizza tonight. But i forgot to take a photo of it. You know who's going to have a good photo of that food me the archival brain tag. He's just like photo pizza. How do i people how do i. You know it's going to be really cool. Is when mike pence is out of the white house i fall asleep. Really cool the the an the perfect. That's going to be really cool when he becomes a food poster. Can you imagine he's going to run laps around even these these. These milk toast asked republicans. This gonna be taking photos of like on buttered bread. I leave my arby's out for several hours. Make un spicer just to cure it just to air purifier. Herbs did like the pilgrim said. Yeah i like arby's jerky. I leave it on my dashboard for several hours awarded. Style co shoelaces covered in bolton crayon. Like it wasn't even catch up. That wasn't quite the color it was neon case. You don't know about you know texas in case you didn't know low you don't know this is a tradition in texas. It is mentioned. All people from texas being like i hate you. This is your daddy you cook. He's got silly putting on beef jerky congealed. It looks like one of those cooking. I love twizzlers in a tub for seven hours. It looks like i would say look like what are those top shift challenges where they're like with a child. Is your partner. Go to a convenience store and make this using the ingredients in that convenience store ingredients crayons and park. Well this brisket is it. Just i don't wanna see so this is brisket. Just don't want to see scott walker's food anymore. It's tear i. I already know if scott walker were to ever invite me over for a meal. I would just say no. That's not like i get it. Listen just be glad. It didn't turn to erotic photography because you'd never have sex after looking at what he photographed brain go there. Why would scott walker's food photos are so bad that i imagine at lunch ables. Hq they pass them around being like see. We're fucking killing it. Look at this guy. We're crushing him. Whatever the mendoza line is from processed food. They just have a picture of his face. The wallet like nabisco. Just go to say this man governor lunch. I mean this is so bad that even people from the midwest dude. I wanted to go on bake off for one episode and then we will bake him off. So matting. the pencil shavings wholesome. They fit well. When i am going to make this whole you mean trifle yet. No full after his. Fill it with trees eat it. It is of nature. I am a matter of the wards. Plow he sucks no job speaking again of cheese okay. Let's focus focus. Turns segues on point Jesus paul triple ryan way to go. Yeah thanks she's a bull. We got our first power five vs para five match up of the year. Now how can is this cheese abo- because this is the russell athletic champs sports camping world mazda blockbuster lineage i don't love it i'm not gonna lie. I don't feel totally comfortable with. What do y'all think. I mean i guess how about this. We did not love the cheese bowl until it became the cheese bullet on this very program. We were skeptical of cheese waiting in college football. And then we saw what it delivered in cal- tcu its first edition. At which point we loved the cheese at bowl so perhaps we could give it a chance. I will like it as long as it is. Sloppy and bad games. Got early an unprepared team right before the game. Something going wrong in orlando. I say the only the only pause i have with it is that i think the teams in the alamo people more cheese it potential this was texas vs colorado in like fobbed. Yeah that's like the moon in the kind of like the moon in that we're not too sure about it. Yes shady confines of the alamo. Dome indiana ole miss is definitely the most cheese it ball of the year though i mean both those teams all they do is like seventy play. Oh cool for who. It's no time. Here's another one. Shut up your phone. It's fine has a game going to end. Is it going to be normal. Indian ole miss coaching without underwear on. How you know he just told me. I think that's going to be another one. That's like we tell people what they're watching you don't like when they walk in and go. Oh god at the same time there's kentucky state for normies kid. I remember the gag. Is that you know. Nc state has to finish eight and four their record going into this game against the four and six kentucky team is eight and three put the mortgage on kentucky but the whole thing with the college fund out kentucky. Here's how you know the outback bowl isn't holy this year. Onus in indiana have never played each other in a football game not once. There's probably a good reason for that. Through millennia of human history we have avoided ole miss indiana as a football match up but not. We know that we know that's true. That's true that'll be the next thing. They unearth pumping records. Holy shit we found. We found the fide kaley. They had a grove at pompeii. Look at this. This is no one has got a little. Jill still clenched between her lip. Her whole left leg is a flask. These obviously advanced but powerful culture flask full of cheese doctor's orders. She could dead hundred pounds. What's become of us as a species once. We were great when we were kayleigh.
Best NFL Week 6 DFS picks for PaddyPower Fantasy
"Sunday evening checklist meal prep done clothes laid out and your fantasy. NFL team picked for Paddy Power Fantasies Massive two point seven five million pound price to see game first place wins a million pounds and because putty power fantasy games last only as long as the game week we'll have a winner by Monday you could pay someone to lay your clothes on four million pounds that serious serious dollar yeah nowadays it absolutely is incredible competition but he's the catch and there's just a smoke catch six o'clock NFL Games there is a massive price for og isn't a Cyborg aid is huge is two point seven five million pounds to the doctor Abelson but that I wore this exact same jacket last week the fans love it to be honest here the thing that gets maybe the most attention even beyond our daily fantasy picks your wardrobe so I think just keep giving the six passes positives for three hundred sixty odds we three touchdowns he did get needs to -ception but at the moment it looks like one into section for three touchdowns that that ratio has baffled depending on on each week and change it completely he won't but unfortunately it's that sixty thousand pound budget that you need to stay tight with side makes things interesting in a fight bag enough for the benefit of our podcast listeners head on over to ESPN UK's Youtube channel or indeed all social channels at the show and you can see the Oh gee welcome to the show presented by paddy power fantasy which is a good thing G. because this is our daily fantasy special tawny one you've got to budget came on so you got sixty thousand pants that you need to work with to choose your team of course as we know by now wake seeks you can choose your team technicolor he's wonderful Satchel slash briefcase whatever it was it was nice seventeen only two things that I bring my petty fantasy notes that are being eighty pounds overweight and then just this Minnesota lucky just in case is to stress and plan and to get these things exactly right for you and I feel like I'm getting that you all about the business or not least because of the business briefcase right canticles science where we're going to help you you value pick go big pick a defense to take a player to avoid I'm we're going to start with the stock a quarterback offs I met Ron at the moment he is on fire he got over thirty fantasy points on the weekend he's currently averaging twenty two point nine fantasy points which is excellent he completed thirty two of forty the business briefcase is something that's yup transitioned into adulthood over the past few days so I've got this really nice little briefcase whe uh switch to the they want exactly right let's get down to business daily fantasy is all about picking a team of Sixty K. heads the patty power fantasy get with all the different competitions that are going on this Sunday's about a lot on this show all gets carried away with one week or even in that case a couple of weeks of indifferent performance this status offense is still legit aid businesses uncharacteristically radic with with the ball but this against Arizona's a must win game for them I mean if they have any chance of getting the season back on track exactly in the UK is we don't know what we're GonNa get I suspect that this jets defense is GonNa be on the field for quite a long time even at home and I suspect that the cowboys are gonNA WANNA pre- fantasy points but on backing him because I have seen an improvement every week and I guess it's the fact that he can be a reception target or can run the boonies he's just struggle again I think the seahawks go into Cleveland and get the win I think we'll know Russell Wilson during the season into the MVP debate he's a threat of course in terms of what he does in the pants that was costly some going a little bit less this way Gong to four net worth seven point three thousand pounds but he carried the ball twenty three times hundred yards the point and shut up all the haters that'd be making a lot of noise eight K.. Eight Point One K for Cooper Aka for Prescott expend splashing your cash top players was stumping forum wife on absolutely backing myself because last week I went from McCaffrey at ran about a believe he was nine point two thousand a strong it is going against the New York jets which are not on Sam Donald Coming back again that that's an unknown quantity of course he's been out with motto graduate of Fevers we I say Green Bay fan back but other than that he's literally it's not quite at your at your work touchdown in week five against the panthers he also added four SIP on seven targets for twenty nine yards at the moment admittedly he's averaging fifteen point nine appropriate I think I think they're going to go strong I think it's a safe solid back deck and Amari all right speaking to go and big and big spending where I just wanted to run and Ted things up like that okay I'm GonNa go Russell Wilson Against the Cleveland browns couple of reasons I think the browns are going to him so he's worth five point five thousand pounds fatty could've could've done I know you would've liked that but even that's too easy yeah what he's capable of doing on the ground and that Brown's secretary banged up as well keep an eye on the of course you can get your picks before six o'clock see keep an eye on the injury or the admit that I'm going to Bet Ryan and Calvin really met Ron at the moment is worth eight point one thousand pounds and Kevin Ridley actually really shaped fought a and six K. and under so that's thought to all right great star I'm going with the data's pairing of that Prescott an Amari in Kouba you know why because everybody it's we wide receiver stack pairing we think is going to cash in to help you cash didn't see what it did they're getting better at though it's it's a low bar yes I'm really enjoying the floor color at the moment I'm sure about that you know they are enjoying it but some I'm annoyed because I have just been exactly he's the one suffering because I just so what inconsistent but against the cardinals die gave up serious points per savings on backing I think I suggested this might be a nine six thriller so I hope it's not for your pick the dolphins still win but there's a lot more points on the board I've got back to that Atlanta Arizona Game One of his comfort blankets which are rookie receiver needs it's often a tight end or veteran receiver dot com much veteran and much more capable Oh bag is all believers a fantasy plight you don't necessarily always have to be the best you know the cleverest or the the biggest bookworm but it's still hanging please do that 'cause we're taping this and dropping Saturday mornings so there might be things that happen the since we were quoted by the moment eight K. Burger money's averaging twenty insecure Larry Fitzgerald go-to Guy He's averaging twelve and a half points a game but he's going up against Atlanta who are not great defensively and I think this is reading the reports because worst case scenario you spending big on a Playa and then you realize what's happened on a Friday it's just about engagement injuries and even down reached in that injury report positive pliers that might not try and on a Wednesday not try on a Thursday but they will be plan but it's always about staying engaged double checking the details of alignment out or something that productivity were running back imposs- protection to keep a keen eye on that particular go big when you gotta get you gotta get that Balkan you got a little bit more room for maneuver of course because it six K. or less where do you see the value this week is spot on there and I'll go for Chris Thompson fought point England again a little bit similar to forget for me these these that's enough as a quite good but it's a gut instinct far point four ECON necessarily and making sure you're up to date with the injury reports didn't try and this week so if you were to compare that to say Patrick mahomes room to have an ankle but he they're gonNA points on the board I think Alanna will try and force the issue and get the offense going which will help you with Ya Calvin Ready Matt Ryan pig so I think caught Amari will be chasing the game which I think he's going to be five points a game I'm Russell Wilson's go make this week just on that it's a great peaking debut looking at twitter when we get sent in a lot of questions to the talk about five or ten of the week you know everything else noticed my favorite time of the week you know that that I wake up on Monday and I got five Eddie Pick Larry fits the evergreen great I hope he just keeps on playing forever the fine the cat said he's being targeted almost nine times again by car Lamar he's Kawamori airing it out a little bit I don't think Larry Fits could be that recipient so Larry Fits for my valley okay there's a two plays that we liked the look of that played that we want to have in your show but I think that it's a good opportunity for Thompson to flex his muscles in now advocate gap. I think our Friday Post Ben Isaacs previewing all the wrong I believe he's going to really turn on the weekend at five point four just throwing it keeps a thread alive it's against Miami right the exact against Miami but we've had a little bit of Banjo before the stars but I believe that the Redskins have got this uh-huh part of whatsoever getting Hasha every week with that I don't WanNa even look at them on the post down my wool by weakness is going to be would you know reading the injury report he will even though he didn't try but in this case taught Galilee I'm not sure if he replied even if he does it suggesting that he workload will be shared around the anyways we see exactly right so with all those things considered Annie's worth seven point one thousand pounds pretty four nights at five point four is pretty good for more and say Thompson rush four ties to twenty one yards and caught father seven targets for seventeen yards in their loss against so in the same way I think Sam Darnold probably GONNA have bad game against Dallas or at least it's too much of a risk we don't you know what we're going to get so keep away from that six he's workload at them

Baubles be this morning and he was very clear he told me. We're not going to move off of that schedule unless we are forced to move off of it and we're not going to know that anytime soon. He told me yes. They are talking about potential scenarios. I've been told by people that they are discussing. Broad hypotheticals at this point but the general consensus amongst the college commissioners is. Let's try to get these games. Played when there's already scheduled to be played so as we try and break that down desk. The question is the following question. Easy here is. Should they be delaying the college football playoff. Tell you what. That's a really really tough question because we we dealing with the virus is so unpredictable. And i remember back in the summertime. People predicted that this will have a second wave and now we see the numbers of start to spike again. I'm not sure if this is considered the second wave and the thing is we have absolutely no idea how long it's going to last day. Delay delay just might not be the answer. I tell you what though. I do not envy the college football playoff selection committee. Because they're gonna have their hands for bob and weave and be extremely flexible and trying to determine who were the team that they're going to pick to be in the college football playoff so it's about being able to adapt in the judge and coach right now. I don't know if extending the season coach is going to help at all. I don't think it's a call that we need to make yet. Because as you said desmond there's so much unpredictable unpredictability right now and we don't know what's going to happen. What i do know is this. Is we become very adept at adjusting and as you said at bobbing and weaving and and i think that these people will make the right decisions. When they are forced to make the right decisions. I love the fact that they're considering everything. They're open to everything but they're staying on schedule to have the bulls and to have the college football playoff and championship game at the appropriate time. So you know we just have to stay flexible. And i think we've done a great job. Stan flexible solicit stay flexible. Let's keep talking about it. Let's keep the dialogue going Let's keep the kids the players. The parents all informed but Let's just hope Let's just hope that we get to that point where we can actually have that game coach. I appreciate the optimism. And the hope. But i'm also trying to be released here so heather i mean if you look back to the way. The summer went down. These conferences did not work together to figure out how they were going to play. Are they going to be able to work together. Now when it comes to getting the college football playoff to come to one decision that benefits everybody. I think they have to. And i think the answer to that question is yes there are meeting and they are talking regularly and i think at this point. It's certainly a different situation than it was in the summer and that everyone is playing now and just to further emphasize. Some of the points of the guys spoke about. There is no cutoff date for making this decision. They would like to go as long as they possibly can gather as much information as they possibly can. It could be a month from now that this decision is made that being said. I think that they all have to work together to do it. In one of the questions that they're facing is what happens if you move heaven earth to push this playoff back and find some tv window somewhere around the nfl playoffs. And then you have one of the semi-finalists or one of the teams playing in the national championship. They have an outbreak and they can't play for two weeks. These are the things that they are just talking through right now because does is right. This thing is going anywhere anytime soon. So let me play. Devil's advocate quickly. Here on the sec. And i got to play early. And i did my thing. Why do i want them to do anything right now. That helps the big ten or the pac twelve. Well i think you have to look at the other teams in the conference because it's just not about the sec we're all in this together and You know if you in the playoffs emphasis playoff game. You're gonna play you got. You're not gonna play an sec team. You're gonna play a different from a different conference. So i believe that you have to look at the goodness of the whole. That was best for the whole of college football. Not just for your conference well. Here's according to throw throughout the graphic and we've got to play predictor to give you a little bit of a sense of who right now are stats and info. Group has come up with a metric. I don't understand but it tells us everybody. Who has the best shot to reach the playoffs. You see alabama at number one with eighty nine percent the only team other than alabama with greater than fifty percent shot to make the playoffs ohio state at seventy four percents. Keep an eye on wisconsin over there. We'll get to them. A little later at the bottom of this listed still forty percent boston college notre dame football version of the holy war rivalry cow to catholic schools in america. Just gone at it. Great challenge this week with boston college. We have the chance at playing the number two team in the country. You have to be excited. They're really good. Upfront number is really good number. Six linebacker truly good quarterback. He's faster than i thought. So we're gonna have to respect that your views. Here is a great job at pc off. You're basically taking rookie and sold for more yards in a buddy in mason. See i know they. They wanna beat me badly and same with me. You could really feel the energy that we're ready for this game and how much it means looking to get a great victory against a so. We'll have to be prepared visit. The donald shop works short and cleansing. Your interest on foot off the pedal to continue to play. Hard is a great opportunity for my team. Go out and do something big. All right. let's get to our wendy's weekend wake up but we all know that we're waking up and notre dame got a huge match coming against boston. College will be on that one by the way you can check that out obviously on saturday and it raises a question of what we expect coming out of this game. So i'll ask you first days. What do you got in this one. We're going to go to a graphic. I we've got something going to pop up. Oh yes notre dame and their record after they been number one or beaten number one. Sorry the last time. Notre dame beat the number one team in the country. They went on to face boston college the following week. That did not work out well again. That was nineteen. Ninety-three calmed down a little bit but at least it gives us some historical significance. So now dez when you consider that What are you looking for in this matchup between notre dame and boston college. I tell you what i think of boston. College going to stay in this game. They're gonna have to be very aggressive especially on first down. They have to stay ahead of the chains and they were aggressive when they play they play. They play clips a couple of weeks ago because offensively came out throwing the ball Some foremen white outset. I think caught clemson's defense off guard. And then they were able to stay ahead of the chains and don't forget they had the lead in the first half so i think staying aggressive offensively first and second downs. That's going to be very important for them because that was the recipe. If you're going to keep that defense on this heels throw the ball on first. Downs makes you sell scout. It don't do things that you normally do. I think that's going to be boston. Colleges best recipe for success in this game coach. You and i talked last week about the book and what to expect from him and then he went out and had a great game. So at this point. What's your expectation for ian book in this one. I think i'm still concerned about in book. I think he's reached his ceiling. And and that's a high ceiling. Let's not let's not downplay. I mean he's a very good player as you said he played great last week. Did some super things when you need to. But my concern is not just in book. It's how does notre dame handle this game can they build on the momentum that they obviously gain when they beat clemson in double overtime or does that double overtime win creates a fog that they have to fight through early in the game to end up beating boston. College and dez brings up a good point. You better be aggressive boston college. You better not get yourself some third and nine third and ten situations that notre dame defense can pin the ears back and come after you because they will come after you as seen by the the final series of the clemson. Game so yeah. I'm a little concerned about book But more so. I'm just concerned about the mental state and i. I think we'll see early in the game where they are emotionally and you know boston college. Football team boy are fast improving. Look i'm concerned about where does is emotionally. You got that golf course behind you and you're living the dream they're gonna lose you some point that you go out there and just show us how to put some point in the show it. Why not they give me some sticks. I will for sure i mean. I'm jealous of the we mentioned in book. You should see books. Record here as a starter. We're talking about the third best record by an active. Fbs starting quarterback fighting irish have lost only three games. Book is the starter. He totally trails fellow. Acc quarterback trevor lawrence and of course ohio states justin fields in that category. So a work by him. And i'm glad that he's not defined by the fumble that had us all sorts of scared for notre dame into that one so coming up next saturday spotlight. You know what time it is. It's time for us to take a look at some of the best games in the country. We will do it next on college. Football live kelly would. Bowl live is built by the home depot. How doers get more done.

It's our time to run through all of the best action. And we start with indiana versus michigan state number ten indiana highest api ranks in sixty nine taking on michigan state team that frankly seems to hold onto the football so coach. What have you seen from. Michael panics junior. So far i think the play we just showed rideau to the front pylon stretched out for the touchdown kind of defense to find him as a player when you look at statistics. He's not overwhelming only completing fifty nine percent of his passes but he's really good at making the throw he needs to make winning. Needs to make these really good at taking care of the football which the indiana offense is in general there plus six in turnover ratio in thirty four points off takeaways. So that's that's a heck of a job next up northwestern. Do raise your hand if you thought this would be a big one and then put your hand down before santa finds out what you got on northwestern. That's making them so good thing. I love about north western. I ball panthers drove down the tremendous job year in year out his team but defensively this route man. They shut you out in the second half no team escort any points on them in the second half. That's three games straight with. No second half points lets you know. They do a tremendous job of making adjustments at half time. All right next up wisconsin remember. They actually played football. They're wanting to know. I'm telling you bud can. They beat a michigan team. That's going off. The rails. Coach would have expected so far from this one what we don't know who's going to play quarterback you're going to be graham mertz gonna be chased wolf dan band and boom. You know those two guys mentioned wolf and of whom have two attempts between them. Mertz obviously burst on the scene october. Twenty third which was a long long time ago. What does don brown. The of coordinator michigan have schemed up for these young quarterbacks. That's what i'm looking to see. I'm just excited. They're back and lastly arkansas next up in the round robin sec teams. Hopefully play enough defense to slow down the gators offense dez what you got your eye on. This one is they got this receiver. They call him a tight. Nba receiver nameless cow pits. And say he's outstanding. Probably the best player in college football if any position. He's just unbelievable. Six point six two hundred forty five. Extremely athletic guys is seventeen yards per reception. Eight touchdowns does problem the season. He was concussed. We can go to georgia game. Hope that he's able to play this game against arkansas. But i'll tell you this guy would be on the boat the heisman today. He would be on my ballot. Oh no positional bias there from wide receiver to just say. I mean quarterbacks paver quarterback because is that all right. Let's take a look at the goodyear more german player to keep an eye on that fully bay. Franks far more efficient in san pittman system in arkansas than he was when he played for the gators. He's more than doubled his touchdown to interception ratio by taking far fewer chances downfield big homecoming game for him and speaking of big games.

According to michigan have schemed up for these young quarterbacks. That's what i'm looking to see. I'm just excited. They're back and lastly arkansas. Next the round robin sec teams. Hopefully enough defense to slow down the gators offense dez once you got your eye on in this one. Is the this receiver. They call him a tie. Envy's really receiver name is cow piss. Tell he's outstanding. Probably the best player in college football if any position. He's just six six hundred. Forty five extremely athletic guys. Average averages seventeen yards per recession eight touchdowns does probably the season. He was concussed. We can go into georgia game. Hope that he's able to play this game against arkansas. But i'll tell you this guy would be on. We had open heisman today. He would be on my ballad bias there from wide receiver to. I'm just saying. I mean your quarterbacks waiver quarterback is plugging all right. Let's take a look at the goodyear more german player to keep an eye on. That's felipe bay.
