"Thank you to all of you for listening to those episodes. We're going to drop some interviews next week. It's GonNa be really fun stuff that we got this week with Dak Prescott and Derrick Henry. So that'll be coming up next week. But we want to talk about super bowl fifty four or dave as they call it down here special event and fifty four bet I guess due to copyright stuff. We don't know if it's that or just somebody for the Florida Department of transportation just putting a random random generic sign up you know those those electronic signs that are on the highway that tell you when. There's a lane blocked ed or how long traffic is going to be with signs. In South Florida say special event traffic expect delays. But it's not super bowl traffic. It's special event traffic. We have redoubled special events. Fifty fifty four. Well the chiefs are now one and a half point favorites in special event fifty four. What does the over-under I see? Fifty three and a half on fan duel sportsbook and he says it. She's and how are you feeling right. Now it's Friday afternoon. It's super bowl time. You know. I spent last night at a brewery with Garmin shoe. I mean the night before I was is having stake in an old fashioned with Brian. McFadden I feel pretty good. You think they're gonNA win the chiefs. Yeah Yeah Yeah I I listen could they lose this game. One hundred percent either team could win but if Patrick mahomes plays like Patrick Mahomes and Andy. Reid doesn't coach scared scared that I think that she's probably win by two scores. Okay so let's start with this. What does this that mean to you this year? The chiefs have actually given up fewer points points barely regular season than the forty niners and the forty niners scored more points than the chiefs. People look at this and go classic offense versus defense match up with the forty niners at the the second best offense in the NFL and the chief somehow gave up fewer points per game. Then the forty niners. I know that we don't think that the chiefs that the niners of a better offense in the chiefs Cetera. Better defense here but what does that mean do. It doesn't mean a whole lot to me. It's just the sum of the parts of their seasons. I still believe that the forty niners have the better defense. But the chiefs chiefs defense isn't bad either. How about this? The forty niners have more sacks than the chiefs. How many more sacks do you think they have to like three? Three's the writing. It's close you. Think about the chiefs in a dominant defensive line. You think all right. They have a good defensive line. They've got good players but they've actually turned out stats that come close to this. Gigantic Forty niners unit their front for has been pulverizing quarterbacks. For the past three months I did enjoy saying gigantic forty niners unit. But I I think that the chiefs defense thing that maybe we haven't talked about enough is the fact that they have not had the front that they currently have or will have for the Super Bowl for very much of the season in fact. I'm not sure they've had them all one hundred percent at the same time talking about Frank Clark Chris Jones and Terrell suggs those three with the honey. Badger edger behind them. It's not really that hard to believe they might have a great defense. Similarly the chiefs offensive line was a bit of a weakness at the beginning of the year they dealt with some injuries and they've turned over a little bit but for the most part they've been healthy and consistent in the last four or five weeks from what I've been reading a really taken off so you've got two good offensive lines and two good defensive lines and to really good teams. I think I and I think Dave I speak for you. I don't know about you. He was surprised that is one point that opened his at one point. You know because to me if we were making the line you know. I think it'd be more like three to four four. We talked about this during the week. We just didn't do it on air but I thought that when the line came out it was almost like. They're trying to beg you to take Kansas City because I think they could have gotten away with Kansas City minus three maybe even minus four and the general public would have bet that I talked about it with Kenny White. Who's known as the wizard of odds? You'll hear them on on all of our gambling podcasting ask and you'll see him on sportsline on CBS sports HQ. Kenny assured me that it's not a trap line. There aren't trap lines anymore. It's just the byproduct of what the books Predicted combined with what sharp betters bat when the line first came out this is just the end result so I think everybody and we asked a lot of people on radio row. I think the how the game's going to go and the majority of them said I'm expecting a close game. So am I so. I think that the short line makes sense. And it's Israel should be a really fun game with a lot of really interesting plays in it. So let's start with picks and then talk about what we instead of saving the Pixel and what we think's going to happen. Let's talk about we'll talk. DFS Talk about props. So my official P- pick was a low scoring game twenty four fourteen chiefs. I feel like it's going to be a very close game for about three quarters in the Chiesa. Poll ahead head. The more I looked into the numbers. There's one thing that keeps getting to me. And that's like every quarterback from fantasy standpoint fantasy points allowed basically every a good quarterback that the chiefs have faces here has done well not necessarily great but I can't find one good quarterback that hasn't scored Gore fantasy points. The only one I think would be Philip rivers and you you have to you know. How valid is that? I guess my question would be where we cutting off good quarterback and where it has Jimmy Garoppolo fit on that spectrum. So that's a great question so here. Here are the quarterbacks Let's see do you gotta give me a second sorry to to find it but but yeah it's GonNa come down to the Garoppolo. And how is he gonNA play. And and even though the more I've looked at the numbers the more that seems. I feel like that favors the niners the way I interpret the numbers anyway but I just I just think Patrick Mahomes is such a difference maker. That I'm not even gonNA get too cute. I think home is going to win. The game. Did the Shawn John Watson in the first round of the playoffs would have qualified. Oh yeah okay. So here's what I have. Lamar Jackson scored twenty points. That was back in like we three or four you L.. Not a great game for him. Stafford Twenty eight to Shawn Watson thirty one Aaron Rodgers thirty two. These are six point passing touchdown. These Kirk Cousins Twenty Six Ryan Tannehill twenty-two Watson scored thirty six points in that game. He had a late rushing touchdown. He had a huge game in the playoffs. And then Tannahill again twenty-one fantasy point so I haven't found one good quarterback who's done well or poorly terms a fantasy points. I don't know what that means for this game but that that may be a little more hesitant with my pick because I guess what I'm saying is it harrap lows good. Tom Brady is not a good knockout. So we're saying does better than Brady or rivers. I mean uncurling from a light. I don't think so. Let's say the passing offenses. The passing offense of the niners can be better than the chargers and the Patriots. Both of those quarterbacks had better statistics this year than Jimmy Garoppolo passing not on a not on an efficiency basis. Sure that's what I'm saying. So if he has to throw the ball maybe he can have success. I would say that is generally a pretty good correlation between having that type of efficiency not throwing the ball very much. Yeah and that's why I said this on. HQ This week this is GonNa be a game where we find out more about Jimmy Garoppolo. Unless they're so good and they can run the ball for two hundred yards and he doesn't have throw but I suspect you will have to throw throw Dave and I suspect we don't know that much about Jimmy Garoppolo. This is going to be a huge stage with one hundred million people making an opinion about Garoppolo. But we've seen Garoppolo when he's had to throw before there were games within the last two months of the regular season against the saints. The falcons the rams he attempted at least twenty seven passes and he put a good to great numbers in those games. I think I know the forty niners to do it. And I think he'll be given the opportunity to do it as well. I don't mind thinking about Garoppolo as a staple we'll DFS lineups this week. Because I think he can reach that. It's not twenty points on a regular fancy Lisa. Dial it back to sixteen in in a setting. Because it's only four points. Were passing touchdown but I think he can get you at least that much and I think he will have to throw and I would look for Twenty five attempts thirty attempts somewhere in that range so I said twenty I four fourteen. I'll just wrap up my thoughts chiefs win. Twenty four fourteen. They pull away late. I will say quite honestly I really don't have a good feel for it. There's some I would not bet this this game. I don't know who's going to win. I think it's a very good match up I can't wait I'm happy that I have no rooting interests. It's not like I you know like when the Patriots around I kind of want the Patriots to lose whether Eagles by the Patriots. I was miserable. I'm just looking forward to watching a game but I don't really have a great sense of what's going to happen so don't pay too much attention. The one thing thing on most confident in from a fantasy standpoint is that both tight ends are going to have big church. That's my breakdown. I just trust Mahomes to get it done and and I think that the forty niners pass defense is not quite as good as we perceive it and the chiefs will expose that and Dave. GimMe your take. I think they'll get tested for sure. And I think they're just focused on trying to contain as best as they can and not have the mindset of to shut them down for four quarters. I I think they're realistic. That they're going to have to give up someplace but hopeful and optimistic. I think that their offense will get some big place against the chiefs defense. And I think it's going to happen and I think when it comes to the fourth quarter I think that the forty niners defense their front four four or if they decide to blitz and dare play a little man against a against the Kansas City offense. I think they'll succeed. I think the forty niners win this game and I'm I'm thinking it'll be a high scoring game close to what that total is. I've got a twenty seven twenty four San Francisco Great Game GAROPPOLO HELLO MVP. Oh yeah take mahomes. That'd be the chiefs. No Calcium have played for playoff games with Patrick Bohm's they've they scored thirty one thirty one fifty one thirty five in those four games. Mahomes has thrown eleven touchdowns and zero interceptions when he's throwing for three hundred yards per game. Now it's incredible. That's why I don't WanNa get too deep into my analysis. Just I'm just trusting defense. He's facing in those four games the Patriots which were good defense but I don world champion. Even I sure I guess that's fair to say I I think this tougher defense. I think it's better defense than the titans were atop sixty fence this year. Statistically they were but I think their pass rush wasn't domino. I listen I I feel like the forty niners just have one of the very best pass rushes. What do you think happens? I think the chiefs will score thirty one. Wow and and be hard for the niners. If that's the guy I think. The niners scored twenty and The chiefs win not quite going away. But I just if the forty niners get a to score lead. I don't really find it that hard to imagine Patrick mahomes bringing the bet like back completely great achieves to score lead. I think it might be over. Yeah I'm not sure it would be over but obviously a lot more trustworthy in mahomes coming back from two scores down then Garoppolo. Yeah I mean I went through all the Games in which the forty niners couldn't really run the ball that well and what happened in those games and be just because as they couldn't run it didn't mean lost right so if you're you're looking at a scenario where they fall behind and they maybe can't run as much the chiefs run defense which has been excellent. I think three point nine yards per carry two running backs in their last six did a great job against Derrick Henry. Let's say they do really well against the niners. I mean they can still win but the common theme in those games that they did win usually either defense.

"Digs Adam. Phelan Young de hop willfuller Houston Davante Adams Green Bay. These are kids. They're not that far to college. All sorts sorts. All these teams have just special guys and yet new England can't find one one single wide receiver in a decade. Kate weird right. That's a weird blind align spot for the best coach in the history of football and I have been critical of Bill Belichick but as you watch the great receivers this weekend. Kansas City's got one as well to tyreek Hill. And Hartman. When you watch this week and you see all those dynamic receivers why is it that the dynasty the smartest football coach of our lives? They haven't gotten one right in a decade so let's look at the NFL teams. I always blamed Bella check on this. Is it Brady Brady. Let's look at the. NFL teams the four to five that we think always tend to draft wide receivers and develop them really quickly Pittsburgh Berg Seattle Green Bay Kansas City in Houston. What are they all? have in common big Ben. Russell Wilson Pat Mahomes to Shawn John Watson. Aaron Rodgers all lightbulb quarterbacks that extend plays with their legs allowing wide receivers more flexibility in their patterns patterns a receiver now has four to five seconds to get open not one point eight or two point four. We blame ballot check for all all this receiver stuff but quarterbacks that extend plays are the franchises were all the receivers seem to work. Isn't that funny. Maybe it's not Bella check. Maybe it's Brady. Which is why? I've said this is a perfect time for Tom to retire. Bucky Brooks wrote an article yesterday saying Patriots should let Tom Brady walk in it. He points to a very intriguing stat. Not only is Brady incapable full of attacking the entire field has a passer but on throws what they call out wide throws outside big throw speed receivers he's thirty second of thirty two qualified candidates folks in the Keel. Harry is not a bust he complied. He is not a bust but receivers are the most NBA like athletes. They're tall they're fast. They're vertical their special. They break the huddle by themselves. They're Eyeso- axe wchs and in Tom's rigid tiny system you're asking an NBA player to not jump high. Not Run fast get get open quickly. Catch.

"Bit of a surprise until he came into the building impressed them with his depth of knowledge nat leaves at this particular point in time. The Cleveland Browns as the lone NFL team at this time without a head coach. Obviously don't have to rush to go higher one but they have a busy week this week and I was told that they would like to have the head coach in place by Saturday. Wendy thank you so you're exactly right and then there was one and that is the Cleveland browns. Does it matter. Does it matter matters if you have a head. Coaching vacancy. Does it. Matter the the last you know oh no I don't think so no I I mean look. It's possible if you had a top choice. Let's say and this is not necessarily true. Let's say for example. They wanted Mike McCarthy. They can't get them then then. Yeah that would matter but I don't think that's the case and I think they browse surly browse notice landscape better than any team in the league. They do this every year every two years so they interview a lot of these guys. These these are good candidates Jim Schwartz. But he that eagles defenses. You're very undermanned. Deserve the look and he's got previous head. Coaching experience. Kevin Fancy a guy. They very nearly hired last skier and then at the last minute they went with Freddie Kitchens and of course Josh mcdaniels who was on the owners list of preferred candidates five years ago. Several coaching searches ago when they landed on Mike. Mike Patton so I think they'll have this wrapped up by certainly by early next week. Now if it's Stefanski for example and the Vikings win Saturday then it can't be official 'til after their season is over but that doesn't mean they can't make a decision if you're in that Brown's locker room course you're not there now. But if you're a part of that Brown's locker room I should say. Does this give you any cause awesome concern. No I don't think it gives you cause for concern because you know what it is there. I think players are very aware of their situations of their organizations situations wasted into different things that they've been through. I think if you understand the Cleveland browns. You know that their search for coach last year wasn't necessarily extensive and you see see how that worked out and so now you know how it works. You went one way and it didn't work out very well so you go the exact opposite. Where you you interview more coaches you get more people into the building going to be as thorough as you possibly can and so for them? It's about getting the right guy after they're finished with their process. And if you're your player you understand you have to go out and play for whatever guide is you hope that he's the right guy but you know you don't necessarily have much control but if you're like let's say Odell Beckham okay. If he's on the browns next year which I think he will be. It'll be his seventh year in the League and it'll be as fifth different head coach credible. Six if you count the four-game Steve Spagnolo took over as interim I'm at the end of that year. Does it. Not that has to have some effect on like on the what. Your career is operating definitely definitely has an effect on the way that your career operates but I do think when you're a guy like him there so much other stuff going on that you never really get an opportunity to focus on that because you consistently working on yourself often so I think we all have understand that these guys are independent contractors in you know there's a little selfishness in it is that I matter more than all of this this other stuff and that's the only way to be good at your job and there is some frustration but when you have a bad year like Odell Beckham Jr talk about statistically just from a standpoint of not having the success as a team or as a player that you want you actually want to move on to something different so there can't be some excitement there and thinking we may get a better coach may be in a better position as well because of all right you take. You took us to a glass half full perspective. There might have better so coaching. Hire you like the best. Obviously I is the idea del Rio McCarthy same way but I mean just the guy that's done it before and had success. Yes and you know kind of knows the role of the head coach and overarching program. In General I. I think that's That'd be my pick at this point. Yeah you know. I think it's it's a hard thing to say which one I liked best. I can't say though that this process is getting rather exhausting from an outside of some of the recycling or some of the making making sure we get some of the names that are out. Then you see these coaches get jobs that we talk about the Rooney rule and different things happening with African American and black coaches and there aren't a coordinators being hired that are African American or that are black coaches or that are minorities so next time the next cycle rose around. It's going to be some of these guys who had the offensive coordinator jobs. The quarterback jobs hype lie defenseless job. You know we're we're hiring freeze hiring people. We are familiar with so when we start talking about having new names and having opportunities for other coaches to jobs we always hear the same minority minority coaching coaching option being interviewed by every team. Let's get Erik enemy. And let's get Erik enemy and let's get Erik but we have never heard him being a finalist for a job and we haven't heard him being one of the guys are when we hear dance. Adam Schefter Talk Chris Mortensen when he lays out with these. Are the three guys that this team really wants. This team is really looking at the African American. Eric coaches into black coaches aren't on those lists and so when you talk about liking hires at like the Ron Rivera high I think it's a good higher but also like to see this process refined in the different way we can give people opportunities not empty. I mean I don't know why you know Leslie. Frazier can't get a call right. He's defensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. Have top defense. I don't know why Byran Aren left which can't get a call who's a well regarded offensive coordinator in Tampa Bay works under Bruce Arians maybe young but but at least you know you you get into the interview pipeline so to speak. So I think there's a there's a major SYS systematic problem here that has to be addressed somehow. I don't know how but it was disappointing. That was the enemy. I think Chris Rashard went to interview with the giants. You didn't see a lot of it and I would like to see teams. Get a little more creative in terms of who they pursue they. You know those I mean I just believe when you look at Mike Tomlin. I believe Mike Tomlin was was a product of this opportunity of getting opportunity to sit in front of the Rooney family and lay his plan out for being the head. Coach of the Pittsburgh steelers. And I'm not saying that every opportunity will work out that way with the same way you were blown away by Joe Judge when he comes in for interview. Maybe if you give some of these other coaches that same opportunity you could be blown away by them as well. That's fair now down to three African American head. Coach is Mike. Tomlin is one of the three and there were none assuming. That's that's not the case in Cleveland. I should say Jim which is another part of the GM so there'll be there'll be some questions about the process for the first time since two thousand nine in the AFC divisional playoffs will not feature the aforementioned. Tom Brady instead. We have four quarterbacks with very little postseason experience Patrick Mahomes into Shawn John Watson if I started to playoff games while Lamar Jackson a Ryan Tannehill just one postseason start each hundred their belt. We will try this again in the AFC quarterbacks we don't have another thing well so far that to show him up we're GONNA GET PAT hat here at least tip number one Ryan Scott. It didn't hide. He's getting it and can you do. I don't know on craigslist as long. Just walk us through it technologies. Oh here we go I what is still the NFC guys Oh man who we got. We got Patrick. mahomes Lamar Jackson. We Got Ryan Tannehill. We got the Shawn Watson loose experienced group. Is it not. It is than the than the I think the the most confidence. Oh here we go. Okay the most confidence I have in this group is going to be. I can't tell who who's it. Just give Patrick mahomes somewhere. Like an eight and a half just awesome. We haven't seen him Go to a super bowl. Superbowl became very very close last year and it was because of his incredible second half performance against the Patriots that they were on the precipice. I think the defense they have this year they might be able to jewelry rain chance to get their no. He's saying right there next to do I got next this tannehill. How are you going to say confident? Confident Derrick Henry and their ability to do it but the Tannehill has to win me. So here's how here's a look at this. Okay you got the ball down four points. There's two minutes left. You're on your own twenty yard line. Do you have faith in your quarterback to go down on the field and when you that game. But that's how that's the criteria applied here so a very high level. He did this against Patrick Mahomes. Okay Okay Nashville. So I think we gotta put they were going to put them a little bit ahead of of five to six so now we got. Who's next we got the MVP right? Hey I have a lot of confidence and Lamar Jackson's ability to win a football game. I can't put him ahead of Mahomes just because we just you know it's it's one year not to isn't that fair right so and then in the playoffs last year he was I. I understand that understand. He's a different player and and we shouldn't judge on that but his one playoff game experience was a disaster mister. That's all I think. We gotta rank them behind right. You have to include that and who's missing here Have you all the way down airy I love this guy. He's Michael Jordan. I think if one quarterback had to do it. Wow if it came down really all the quarterback this is a killer this. This is a guy who's done it before at the college level. None of these other guys. I think he's a of the four here. I'm not saying it's the best player though he might be. I'm saying he's the one this group that I know for sure is a winner and he's done a four I. I like them all these all the grades nine by cutting yelled at me on twitter and whatnot. Here's here's what all win their games. I do not hate your team but that guy. There beat Alabama and the National Championship game when his team was was cooked. And that says a lot. Whoa what I will say here is by your criteria? I absolutely agree if we look at disarm Watson vice criteria the one the one Dr Arrive at Nita playmate I need a team to score. Because if we look at probably his three-hour for best plays of the season you can go to the Indianapolis Colts getting out of the pocket and making making it through the Oakland Raiders. Also last week when you see the big play that he made in the playoffs to win the game against voiced plays needed to be made and so when you look at the totality of the game for four quarters he made do some things that make scratch your head but when it comes to winning football games or saw Watson is a special. I don't know I just wanted to see if I could do it. was you put them rambled around the shoulders. So he's ahead of us. That's week go along shoulders and listen when you do the paddock experience. Bring the IPAD. That's relevant say. Listen all right great weekend of football ahead no question about that new on. NFL Live For our Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley Ravens coach John Harbaugh and having a balanced team number. Two offense number four the defense we never want to be a lobster.

"They combined for seven into Carey's nineteen yards. That's right back several googlers yards. Well Hey had a touchdown that was a one yard. Run it I I mean I don't know what else do you want me to say. It is that's what it is. This was an ugly ugly ugly ugly fantasy slate of games for Sunday. Ed had it wasn't all that pretty Saturday. We'll I'm also seeing stories on twitter that there. There's a allegations of collusion for the person. Could we just won the millionaire maker on draft gangs. This should be fun but Anyway for I get Furhter furhter distracted. Yeah the seahawks did what they needed to do. They want seventeen nine. It was not a pretty game you're not going to be watching this on. NFL films ten years from now. This was an ugly game. Let's move on so going back back to the Saturday games. You had the taxes and the bills and oh man Bill O'Brien bill. Bill bill if it wasn't for the Shawn Watson Bill O'Brien would have been fired years ago. The Shawn Watson continues to save. They've built O'Brien's job and I should say that I'm lucky that the shell wants to keep saving Bill O'Brien job because I am utterly convinced that the way the giants had coaching searches going right now. That bill I would be the front runner to become the next head coach of the giants if he he got fired after if they had lost his game and he got fired point blank. The bills should have won this game. Handily y Josh Allen is throwing so many frigging passes is like an utter mystery to me. I can't the life of me figure out why josh out is throwing so many passes. It didn't make any sense it I mean T- droopy told it screwed everything up because now you've got a situation where Josh Allen is GonNa be remembered for all the screw up see add add abby a.k.a to create this has created more questions about the bills quarterback situation boo before. They say whatever they want. Now I have legitimate. Hamic doubts that Josh out is going to be a franchise. QB Basov of how this playoff game went so to recap the bills. Were up sixteen. Nothing in the third quarter. Were in complete control this game. The shouted Watson leads a tremendous comeback with minimal. Run gain the Shawn Watson. Was the leading rusher first team. He had fourteen carries for fifty five yards. Carl's I'd had forty eight yards on sixteen carries. So yeah that yes. That is a three three yards three yards per carry average and duke. John had one gadget. Play that accounted for is thirty eight yards rushing but this was Shawn Watson carrying his team. He was able to finally get something. Something going with the Andrew Hopkins. I mean the show watch it was completing passes through multiple receivers just trying to get something going but my biggest gripe gripe with the bills is the fact that Devon Single Terry did not get any touches in the second half they needed to encourage moments they were giving carries the Frank Gore. I mean I love Free Corps. Frank Gore is not your number one running back. There's a reason why Devon single terry took over the primary running back duties at the close of the year. Why is Frank Gore? Stealing cares from David every single terry and in critical situations when you're in the red zone. The the bills lost this game in large part due to Josh Allen and critical a cool mismanagement by Sean McDermott. When they're throwing when they should be running in the red zone when the running it they're giving it to Frank Gore said of David but single Terry? The bills had chance after chance to put this game away against the texts and kept ended up having to settle for three point. It was infuriating watching this game. The Texas had no business winning this game. They were thoroughly outplayed. They a SEC Watson seven times people. I can't be any clearer to net. The shot wants. It was running fighting for his life. It's still got sacked seven times. Barda reason why you scrambling so much is because he he had to. The bills are honest. oddest tail the entire game but Josh Allen and his decision making oh boy I mean where do we start taking making multiple sacks to put yourself out of field goal range when all you need is a field goal. I've read Josh Allen all like the bills had to scramble to tie this game up to get into overtime. Josh Allen took multiple sacks knocked them out of feel great and they still had at the defense still had to bail them out again to get the ball back to even send this over time but Josh Allen even in overtime tries laterally the football because he lost track of the clock no no one understands the decision. Making that Josh Allen underwent in this game and again one of my descriptions for Josh Allen was he's a couple of bad decisions away for being Blake Bortles with inexplicable turnovers. That you cannot explain and I have no idea how you can feel good about Josh Josh Allen and his performance when his his his meltdowns are just you know. There's I mean there's the reason why. His nickname is Wyoming Josh. Because he makes tries to make these cowboy plays and just makes inexplicable turnovers hours. Whether it's just a terrible pick fumble taken aback attack. We does need to lie. There were just so many so many poor choices that everyone on twitter you can see is having to save reaction of what the hell is this guy doing. It is one of the most inexplicable things you'll see and again as I said. I have deep reservations Asians about Josh Allen as a franchise. QB This bills. And this is the problem when you invest in and I said this giants fans all the time when you have big question marks about qb and you array kind of get yourself to the sage of yeah. We're just GONNA have to try to make it work. It's almost always a recipe for failure. I'm just saying it. You know. Maybe maybe he learns a big lesson for this but I I don't know I just don't know. Because because even Brett Farve as much as people say talk about Brett Farve Brett farve decision-making never improve throughout his entire career. His is throwing ability is what salvaged him. Josh is not Brett Farve so I I just I don't know I really don't I don't know how how that could even happen. But the play the game and everyone's going to talking about this for years to come you've got you've got the third and eighteen gene. Well well there to place I I should say everyone's GonNa talk about Shown walks and breaking to sat. Ah like he had you sacked by two separate guys. It's still found a way to break out of it. Spin out of the tackles of both players and and And Find Find Taiwan Jones wide open but even earlier in the drive third down. Eighteen and a Watson was able to find Duke. Johnson listen in space because the bills linebackers and coverage dropback too deep in coverage and gave enough space for Johnson into wiggles way to find the. I doubt that play killed the bills. I mean outside of Shawn John Watson Spinning out of Two tacklers To to make the big pass play the set up the winning score again that they're down in eighteen in overtime. That is that that's one that's going to haunt. Ah The bills coaching staff for quite some time amongst all the other decisions that they made a as I said the bills had no excuse of losing this game but they did and the curse continues according to bills fans because they still have not won a playoff game in the. Yeah the ninety five they have not won a a playoff game since one thousand ninety five the street continues all all right moving on and I'll be the one admit it. I did not think that titans with a one trick pony and just running Here I mean. Derrick Henry is a man child I I mean just an absolute monster Amana amongst boys. Listen I did not see Derrick Henry being able to just smash smash and Smash Smash at smash the Patriots Away. Did I said he needed a buck. Fifty to have a chance beat the Patriots. He ran ran for one hundred and eighty two yards on thirty four carries. I mean that's the game folks. The New England England offense couldn't get anything going I thought that The patch will be able to turn it into a James White game throw a bunch of passes underneath if two men and white but the truth of the matter is is that the titans defense was ready to tackle. They made a bunch of tackles and just I can't make it. Your Dad do. England ended up being short on number replace and the problem. Is that even when Tom Brady had type confined anyone open. You Know Tom Brady was clearly frustrated. That entire game and the titans just warm down. I mean it was a thirteen game but man that game felt like it was a two touchdown deficit for the past because it just this continually felt as though they were going through an uphill climb and even at halftime. When it's fourteen thirteen tightens my dad? And I are talking through this game and I'm saying that the PATS ARE GONNA lose this game at halftime in a game of a one point. Game in Foxboro borough. I thought the paths. Were going to lose this. Unless they had some lucky break or turnover to turn the tide and it never came because it just looked as as though Derrick Henry was going to have his way and there was nothing the path we're going to be able to do about it and that's literally what happened. It was a slow Methodical death for the Patriots and all of America was it seemed like everyone on twitter was celebrating the fact that the pats were losing and eventually lost. The one moment that I think signifies this game more than anything else was with about six minutes ago. I'm Mike Gabel coach of the titans employed time wasting strategy. That Bill Belichick has used many times in the past where sure it's a running clock until it hits the five minute mark of the game and he was initially deliberately having delay of game penalties audit team just so he could run the clock down to under five minutes. Because it's a running clock Tuck it will even with a penalty it.

"Swick. Wait it's it's not a game preview edition for the cheese. I still play this week. Because they gotta buy because Right Fitzpatrick upset upset the Patriots in Foxborough we get to talk about the teams that he's potentially could play. We are going to preview. The AFC wildcard hard round which the New England Patriots participated. It's wonderful it's a great time to be achieved fan kick back. Relax enjoy some football. Let's talk about about these football teams today here to help me talk about them. I find him on twitter at chief in Carolina Matt. How're you doing today? Doing Great. She chiefs can distress about. We can talk about which one of these other poor bump teams that we are afraid to play next week or something like that. Exactly sure so. I'm ready go in credit. You're also here with us. How you feel about this week I am going to really soak up the fact that we don't have to work in a football capacity the guys? It's amazing I'm so glad the chiefs are working this weekend. I'm so glad we are working this weekend. We just get the week off and to watch other teams teams bomb out of the playoffs and not have to worry about the chiefs doing the same. Yes this just in Europe instant breakdown this weekend for all the Games. Oh sorry to hear that Powell okay. I'm just GONNA post this podcast over and over again the because we're GONNA nail it right here need to really talk about it after after the game going to tell you everything that happens. We're going to tell you everything that happens this week. So here's what we want. Do we want to talk a little bit about the two games. The four teams that replaying and the three teams that cheese potentially could face in two weeks at Arrowhead with Ryan Fitzpatrick paying the drum But let's let's just go ahead and start with the Buffalo Houston game. Buffalo travels to Houston to play the Texans. What let's scares you about Buffalo Craig? I think that they've got some nice young key. Pieces on their Defensive Front tremaine Edwards is actually looked great this year. He's been able to use his range a lot able to carry. You know cover running back and tight ends out of the backfield. The he's really sleep. Proven himself to be a playmaker at that level and they've also got at Oliver Upfront. We loved at Oliver. He's so fun as a player and he's just this continued to grow and get better as the year's gone along so frankly they've got some pieces up front. That can be a little bit of game records. And I think they're going to give Tennessee. See some trouble. I think they would give the chief front some trouble as well for me. GotTa pay attention to the defensive side of the ball for the bill. Sue You but the defensive backs today is white is probably a top three quarterback in the NFL right now. I think he does a little bit of everything. You pair him up with that. Great great safety combination of bike hide Jordan Accomplish other REU wealth again in the box the guy played safety. The bills have one of the teams that could secondary's that could actually slow the cheese passing attack at a little bit when you compare it to the rest of the AFC playoff picture. It's just at the end of the day. I don't think the bills we're going to have enough firepower on either side. Able to keep up with the chief so Mike Scared level about them. Not The high we can get into that in a little bit but I do think that the the defense for for the bills does present some some challenges for an offense like the chiefs offense really in general. Obviously the offense for the bills would have to make some plays if that defense is going to keep them in the game and I think one of the guys that you got to be worried about John Brown you could say yeah you you know the the bills could play a ball control game a little bit and they could you know. Turn around and hand the ball off a lot to Devon Single Terry and Frank Gore who somehow is still in the league they could play the ball control defense game which I mean some teams have been able to do to the chiefs in the past but I think what would really give this team a chance to you. beat the chiefs would be John Brown. I think John Brown has actually had a really solid year. This year with Josh Allen. I believe he broke a thousand yards on the season and he's got a really productive year he's made some big explosive plays he looks healthy finally and he's a guy that if you don't account for him if you don't honor and respect his ability down the field he can beat you in so John Brown does provide a big play element to this offense that I think you know. If she's got no situation where they have to play them next week take a guy. I'm definitely concerned about on the offensive side of the football. Obviously the run game. They're going to do that. They're going to do what they do. But the explosive element I think really does come from a guy like John Brown. Okay Houston will be hosting this game. They are the four seed. Craig what scares you about Houston. If they're passing attack is fully healthy meaning if will fuller is healthy. It sounds like he's a game time decision this week against Buffalo. They say that he may not play if they if he is healthy. He changes the entire complexion of that offense. He offers the ability to take the lid off the top of the defense and we know what the biggest concern with one. Thornhill injury is going to be. It's going to be that ability to play center field table to keep a lid on the defense. Is Kendall Fuller going to be able to match up with will fuller deep. There we saw the chiefs had trouble with will fuller. He may have only had five catches for forty four yards but he left probably three catches for another hundred yards and two touchdowns on the field in that game through drops ops he just changes the way that teams have to defend the Houston. Texans they have three losses in the games that he's played in this year and he's played in eleven games so you know eight and three. They're they are two and three in the Games without him they just. They look completely different. If he's healthy than I think the chiefs are much more stretched out and have to defend much more field than if he's not yet let you said they had a couple of drops in that game that were deep downfield tooth. And we're really A. We're getting to the chief secondary and part of what makes me worried about to the Sean Watkins ability to play out of structure through the chiefs defensive terrier down down the stretch. They've played river twice. Derek Carr Tom Brady drew lock in the Mitchell trubisky. Every single one of those quarterbacks is a very structured quarterback back. You could make an argument that you're Bisky isn't but they're trying really hard to rein him in just so they can figure out how to have a competent offense. You would a quarterback or just a sorry any what the chiefs and played a bunch of structured quarterbacks guys that are going to stay within the framework of the offensive player. They're trying to throw on time. They're looking for something. You've seen the cheese Steve spagnuola to take advantage of that with preset motion draw. Cadets from all different areas Shawn Watson he will happily hold the ball he will get out of structure around him a place that his legs his arm on the move. How that she's going to handle that wants to Shawn John Watson starts making a couple of plays if they were to play each other distinct watson getting out of the structure of play could be solved? That could really hurt. The cheese did. Don't have the most athletic second level owner defensive side of the ball. Yeah and I think the other thing about kind of both of those points you guys just made is Sean Sean. Watson's willingness to challenge down the field. Oh to I think is something that really could present some some challenges secondary here Yellow Baltimore. Yes and he's got the best of the best he's he's got new coppins and potentially will fuller to take some shots down. The field with that scares me for a team. Who has done a good job? Bob Protecting their corners this year. But that could really. I mean every concern and fear that I think anybody not that has had this conversation about the quarterback class or quarterback group for this football team. I think they're fierce could potentially be realized if Houston is the team that the cheese he's ultimately have the play and if a guy like you know Willfuller is actually available so for me. It's Jj Watt because Jj Watt somehow miraculously after tearing. His pack in like. October is going to give it a co this year. He's going to try to play in the playoffs. which if he's able able to play at any level? Jj Watt game record. And if he's planning along the interior she's off. It's of line hasn't been particularly good. He's a guy that can wreck wreck this game even if he's eighty five percent which I think is still probably stretch if we're being honest even if he's at eighty five percent he's still a supreme talent in a guy that can really wreck this football team along the interior. A I I. It's it's kind of its its ultimate respect for him. I think I'm a little bit concerns. Let's predict this game Craig. Who Do you have winning against between Buffalo and Houston? I think buffalo like I just said Willfuller not being on the field changes the entire complexion to this. I don't think he's GonNa go this week. And with that being the case Houston's defense I know the J. J. Watt come back but frankly they're bad like they're pretty bad and I think buffalo is going to be able to move the ball through Devon single terry breakthrough. John Brown a little bit with Josh Allen on the ground and I think that defense can do enough with Davis against new COP kipnes to slow everything down a little bit. I think the buffalo is going to go in there and squeak out a victory against Houston at I. Frankly think that the more well rounded team even it though Houston has the better quarterback. Look at it. I agree that Houston's defense is pretty poor but the thing is the bills offense this is also pretty darn or they struggled to move the ball. The Texan struggle to stop people from moving the ball. So I think when you had to pit those things against each other album side of the better quarterback of the day. That's the Shawn Watson adducing. The bills defense is a little better position to handle the Shawn Watson whether it is out of structure action whether it is throwing up. These decoded yellow passes to the chiefs will be but I think the shuttle Watson isn't electric vehicle football player that he is not going to go down to Josh. Josh Allen led offense in a home game in the playoffs. I'm old Craig Craig on this one. I I think the buffalo the bills are going to upset Houston if will fuller place. I flipped that. I don't think he's playing. I think a really bad scenario for the chiefs could would be if they have to ultimately play. Houston is if wolf older doesn't play this week in is able to give it a go next week. Another week of rest and actually Lee is able to be on the field next week if the chiefs had to play them. That could be a significant challenge for this. Football team would definitely be a shootout if that were to happen. But I'm giving buffalo win here. I really liked the buffalo defense. I think that the I think the bills can do enough offensively with Josh Challenge. Legs if he can make a few plays in the passing game which is like what he did against the Patriots a few weeks ago to give his team a chance. I mean they they were they were on the. They were on the doorstep type of upset and Tom Brady and the Patriots in Foxborough. which apparently isn't that hard? Because Miami did this week but that's that's neither here or there but I'm going with buffalo this week. We're going to take a break and we will be back to preview patriots and titans right after this. I'm.
"shawn john watson" Discussed on Buccaneers Observer
"Thousand nineteen. We just watched the the Texans at buccaneers game week. Sixteen man what a game. That was fun. That was exciting. Molly is really crushed. She said that's what hurts parts. That's all she's been saying for like this hurts. This hurts. Yeah it was a lot of back and forth and it's a game that I think we definitely lost. Yeah exactly Nicholas and I accept one one thing bring up later where the Texans did it. Excellent okay for the most part. We lost this swan. We gave it away and the rest helped in the beginning sucked. There were a few pertinent calls. I thought they really screwed up. But in general this those are game to lose and we did and we did. The REF crew was Scott Novak first year as a head Raff his crew. None of them have been on this officiating crew. Before this is a new crew we had two guys had worked together on a separate crew and another two guys had worked together on a separate crew other than that totally new crew. These guys never worked together before and they had raff was a few Joe. Joe Yeah I think what the RJ. Or or Jason Raymond James Stadium. Now the trick questions. Anyway he was like a back judge or something and then this year was was promoted to head ref so we've got a crap. referee crew and it showed. But yeah you're right. I mean we lost this game. This is I think after Ba Eh chewed them out. The refs they really come down here right. There's a video on twitter. Him cussing at the rams like he can barely very very clearly. And I think that might have been after was that the Pi word the fumble that should have been ours though. God who knows there was such a long list of us being screwed by the Ralph's that fumble fumble but they rolled hamblur great progress was stopped and said that we couldn't challenge ridiculous. Here's the thing is again. It's a subjective rule. You know it's up to the officials to decide when somebody's progress stopped but when you've only got somebody's ankle one the ankle and they've got a leg free. Their progress shouldn't be stopped right when tons of we've seen somebody get out of an ankle tackle and move forward and then the pass S. `interference that that Texans receiver like got in Pyramids way he was tackling him before the ball even got to paramount so he couldn't catch it. They now is the non encore or call. NBA challenged it and they. The call stood blatant defensive. Pass interference then. The very next drive live team gets called for holding. That was really ticky tacky. And it's like okay. You'RE GONNA call some bullshit holding. That really could have gone either way. But YOU'RE NOT GONNA call a blatant impasse interference right in front of your referee on the sideline in how `Bout Bouchard Pyramid late in the fourth quarter has to come out of the game. The referee is force him out of the game because of a hit to the head yet they did not call a penalty debate right was like the replay. It was blatantly obvious that the defender come in shouldered him right in the head as a defensive receiver. No call but yet they'll force him off off the field. I the the that one just blew my mind. I think he did end up coming back after the in the I don't know oh yet but I think the narrative is going to be Jameis. Winston screwed up but book Jamieson has got a broken thumb and both of his pro double wide receivers were out and I really think not that any of those interceptions were necessarily the receivers fault. But I think that Mike Evans and Chris God win kind of insulate him from those kind of plays in a normal game and also the three long bomb touchdowns that are receivers. It looked like Jameson. Threw threw him over. The One pyramid bounced of right off his hand right. He only needs one handed. China Canton Evans at Godwin would've caught those passes right now. That's that's our wide receiver. One is out wide receiver to is out. But I'm going to say this Pearman is awesome. Some of those catches were incredible. I think I counted three. Three of them were like yeah. He didn't catch that. I was inbound. Right never looks like he's inbound. What he's got these twinkle toes as clumsy as he is when he's falling? He's still manages logistic at his feet. inbounds incredible Takkula catches not as great as well as Mike Williams used to be those that was his bread and butter. Was that toe-tapping. So pyramid doesn't quite look like that but I don't really care how you look as long as you're making the catch to the sideline because Mike Evans isn't not really that kind of receiver tapper. God One is kind of kind of. He's he's better at the yard after the catch and when he's getting hit I think that's kind of his fourteen. We got to physical receiving possession. Receivers paramedic great. I was really really hats off to Helmi worried me. At first I was like. Oh my gosh one hundred two yards this game receptions twelve targets so he did miss five the so much to talk about this game so much okay number one. Let's get to this stands. Were Empty Komo bug. Fans Kinda section was fall as the lower section Nen data section above that there was nobody there only in the end zones now. They have their seat painted red in the lower sections and the upper sections. So it's really hard hard to tell how full they are but you can see in the club level with those gray seats. It was bars. I would say stadium. was maybe half full to we gotta do better. We gotta do better as fans times on the crowd gotten really loud especially some of the bullshit wrath calls you could hear them on. The broadcast over crowd was into into and that was a great game. Even though now we're into the not just talking about how exciting is when it all comes down to it like we say this this is about entertainment and we gained tens of thousands of fans today because we were a national. This was nationally broadcast. We will only dame on at one o'clock a lot of people watch this game. A lot of people win. This is exciting football. This is exciting and it had implications on the national stage because of their playoff playoff implications. Yes for everybody upset that we lost today. Think of it this way okay. We didn't have anything to fight for but we still have went out there and put a good product on the field. We are very entertaining. Won't we did do is damage significantly the playoff chances for the Tennessee. Titans who beat as early in the air who shouldn't shouldn't have so it was like a kick in the nuts two titans all you texting Tennessee. Titans fans out there. Yeah there you go so think of it that way it was entertaining game and we damaged an enemy and despite Janus throwing interceptions one six six. He threw three hundred and thirty five yards. His quarterback rating was forty six point eight. So not the best showing by him but Shawn John Watson didn't do much better. He had one hundred and eighty four yards. Was Nine thousand. Nine hundred thirty two had one interception zero touchdowns and was sacked five times. I'm still a board. That's horrible defense. You've got a hand. Applaud are different or defense was outstanding such again game by them and there were playmakers. They made plays an important times. We needed the ball back. They gave it to us. James Rose and interception and we need a stop from the defense and they gave it to us. They gave us twenty eight seconds left. gave us the offense every opportunity. Yes Jamal Deen. Learn how to catch the ball today. Beautiful interception he would. He'd had five interceptions on the year if he had good hands. He's got homeland. Maybe paramount can work work with them but yes our secondary was great. Our defensive line was fantastic. Fantastic You know you say we got five. Six three of them. Were from J. P.. Oh my gosh. And we contained the Shawn Watson that was. That was what I was worried about. He was still their leading rusher but the only had thirty seven yards. I mean they have sixty eight yards total rushing with a mobile quarterback. Yeah no did dead. JP just wonderful Van Sou did their job spectacularly Nassar had a sack. Yes but J. J. p. p. was just lights out he was. He was dominating their whole game plan their players. Everything as one play in particular where I saw him talking. Going to Nacho and you can see moving his arms and I was thinking all of their coordinate and some probably going to be a stunt. Well it wasn't a stunt in the UN really call it a stunt JP went to the inside and they coordinated to open up a hole. So the Shawn Watson thought he had a running late and he did and JP was right there behind kind of just fell on top of it was it was beautiful. I was like that. That was some pro level elite level stuff right there. JV got to give it up to one nice game. And they held the during Hopkins to twenty three yards that he had five catches. Wow unreal unreal. Yeah yeah the the key to the game was the turnovers office. We gave up too many turnovers boy. Here's here's what I say. Yes we lost this game but Houston did perfectly undercutting winstons out routes it was. It was great on their port. They got two interceptions off of it. I think we only had one complete outright this whole game and that's Winston's bread and butter so hands. Tam's up for Tennessee. Titans Coaching Texans. You know what screw the AFC the bite me they all your same NFL racist be. I was impressed with they did that. So hats off to them would say hands up hats off to them for that very impressive for me. I think the play of the game was that camera embrace drop. Oh I was just going to talk about okay. I wrote in my notes. I'm like everything on James Right now. It's seven eleven in the fourth fourth corner. His scores Twenty three twenty. We're only down by three. We just need James says driving down the field run. The time off the clock score a touchdown it's over. He's totally incapable. That we've seen it before and it starts with a near Dhari fumble on the punt return and that it Kinda bounced off the ground and then he caught it and Rian with it. So why don't we have Dr Returning punts now. No yeah but he gets to the nineteen so that was mitigate him James. Get some pressure but makes good decisions. There's a pass down fee all but there's a defender in the way you said it was about pass that. OJ Had to slow down. Catch at defender's helmet right. So this drive is kind of hot or cold more more than Colin I think but then pair airman gets a really nice catch than rogue at the NFL and its fourth and one four three after the T. f. l.. And we need this first down and we pass it to break. He's right there at the down line. He would have had had he caught it and he just dropped it. There is no pressure on flat. Let out dropped his job debt. If disappointed me they are tight ends. We're not more involved in this game. We had talked about going into this view. They were open but they they were dropping balls left and right..
"shawn john watson" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"What is the point of hiring someone if you're not going to let them do their job but the reason they're in this situation they are now is because he hired John John Dorsey a guy that couldn't figure it out in Kansas City when ever since he's been gone it and it was working when he was there like what the hell happened? There John on can't manage people can't manage the salary cap. Your Eagles too big you a little bit of a control freak. So of course. Jimmy has them hires them and because of the Sashi Brown debacle Michael. And that's exactly what it was. He voted up on. All these picks anyone can trade back down and acquire picks he passed on Carson Wentz. He passed onto Shawn John Watson. He kept passing on good players. So I I'm tired of hearing Sashi Brown was ever going to turn them around. He had proven that he can't evaluate town now. John Dorsey has proven that he can. But he's staked his career on Baker Mayfield so when you draft number one one overall all the chips and your entire franchise especially. It's a quarterback or in the middle of the table on that player. They had the biggest decision in recent memory they needed. A coach. Had A number one overall quarterback they had Jarvis Service Landry the traded for they were going to trade for Odell Beckham clearly on their mind. I know they traded for Beckham after Freddie already named the coach but clearly the wheels in the thought process were already in motion for John. Dorsey you would think you would go after you know a big swing right a legitimate coach. Whether that was held Mike McCarthy had just been fired by the Green Bay packers like they had worked together in Green Bay before he needed a guy that knew what he was doing. I don't know an adult in the room room someone who had at minimum been a coordinator before because you can do let Freddie. Kitchens had never been a coordinator until Hugh Jackson Todd. Haley got fire last year. So what does he do. He hires Freddie Kitchens. What has happened more losing? Of course they're losing. I like Baker. Mayfield coming out Oklahoma. I don't really like them now and I used to disagree with Colin Coward My Colin I. He's a better player than you're giving them credit for and I don't think the maturity is that big of a deal calling dead on was debt. I mean it's it's been his best take probably ever. Has He ever nailed a stronger. Take legitimately the majority of people even like Collins biggest fans. I kind of disagreed. He was dead on well..
"shawn john watson" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today
"Dr David Chow Pro Football doc dot com and you can follow him. You better follow him on twitter at pro football doc doc. He has a podcast. He's it just got so much. Great Injury Information. Welcome back how you doing Dr Show. I'm doing good thanks for having me is always a pleasure. Let's start with Marlin Mac. What what do you think we're looking at here with Mac and his broken hand well what we said? Yesterday at twitter in the pro football dot com has come true that he broke his a metacarpal in his right hand and we'll have surgery on it and interestingly enough awesome broke it warding off tackler and He still gain another ten yards before he went out of bounds and And exited did the game short week. which makes it very hard essentially impossible to play this Thursday when the colts play the Texans But he shouldn't be too long. I mean the surgery actually stabilizes things You gotTA remember Demarco. Murray a couple years ago. I've done this with running backs as well so played the next week but Thursday's just a lot to ask for so he should be back is fantasy football playoffs. Come around the the worry though is How effective will he be? Being a left. Handed bulk carrier obviously usually carry the ball on the outside hand. So we run into the right. You're carrying it in the right but he'll be carrying it exclusively in the left hand. And what will his role the in the passing game. They're catching passes or pass protection. So I think that's what in fantasy you have to worry about injury. Wise he could return Four were the week. Thirteen gotta be a little careful there. Okay that's interesting. I guess if there's one running back or he'd be in a short list of running backs that you I I guess would be the most okay with having an injury like this because he just doesn't do much in the passing game but that is a good point. I mean he gets so many carries makes up for it Meanwhile Matthew Hugh Stafford. So what's going on here. Is We got a report that you know from Ian Rapoport and then. ESPN that it could be a six-week injury. Are we looking at a season. Long thing for Stafford you express some optimism. Last week. I believe all I totally did and thank you with a chance to walk it back. Some expressed a lot of optimism based based on the reports that it was a transverse process fracture right and based on the reports that that Matt Patricia said it was up to him if he could play. Yeah right well since. He didn't practice all last week and was ruled out. That's not the pattern of transfers processed fracture since Matthew Stafford is as tough as they come right. Is One hundred thirty six games streak only Philip rivers more I mean Derek Carr Cam mm-hmm Newton Tony Romo all missed only one week with transfers processed fracture and so if you add it all up and you add Indians report six six weeks and so forth. I think he's got more than a transfers processed. First of all upper thoracic transverse processes fractures are almost never isolated. They come. I'm with associated other injuries. So yes at this point. This is more than just a simple trans process for extra down a lumbar spine. It's something is up responding. And so I I have to take back the book. He's GonNa play well before Thanksgiving and you're around Thanksgiving. I think he's if you know the six week timeline. Maybe you can shave it down to four or five. But he's not playing this next week either and let's see us even practices and then I could come to find out that Bob Bob Quinn's at the doctors actually ruled out the first week and I don't think he would rule someone out with transfers processed fracture so based on reviewing everything here You know you gotta call us be state and and I think my impressions. Although based on other reports of the Trans Process are not going to be correct. Do not challenging for Thanksgiving. Wow okay sorry I didn't mean to call you out there but it's good okay. It's it's good like you gotta own it right. I mean you you know right right like it's not like I'm examining Matthew Stafford and and perhaps is wrong and even then you can't always protect predict the guys and so I actually appreciate hey the chance to rectify what I said and be appreciate the chance of being called out. I think it's a lot more authentic to say. Yeah that one wasn't right. I mean you can't sit here would be one of these guys on Sunday morning. Radio pick me up seventeen hundred zero you read. It is is what it is very important in this industry. You have to own up to it for sure. So that was that was interesting stuff on Stafford now to Shawn Watson so you saw something with Shawn John Watson. He's got obviously the short week game against the colts on Thursday. What did you see with Watson on Sunday? Well let's begin video of the website. I said you know he got right. High Ankle Sprain. Now it's not severe. It probably could be similar it a little bit of what Patrick Mahomes got and week one and we played through and until he re aggravated and five and six for Patrick Mahomes. So does Shawn Watson is in a similar boat. It's his right. Ankle is left bombs left. But it's a mile al Heikal Spring by by video. He's lucky to get us without Olympic a little bit. He's a great athlete. You could barely tell play through but it is a short we game. I think he's GonNa play. I think he's GonNa be fine but I think he's GonNa be perhaps a little less mobile than typical. What can you tell us about Mitchell? trubisky lot of quarterback injuries I guess Satcher Bisky and Jameis Winston Ankle. Yeah if I had to rate them okay I get a lot of fans saying trubisky hurt at all. The bears are lying. I don't believe the bears are lying about Mitch. TRUBISKY'S HIP issue. I do think Matt they give embellishing a little bit and who can blame it. He's trying to protect her back right. A. And think about this I went and actually analyze the plays and and uh you can see them at their website and he did get hurt at the end of the first quarter when he took a knee to the backside of the hip hard enough for Michael Brokers they actually dropped the ball as was he was going into the ground When he got there and so that can swallow? It'd be sort is hip hurts. Is He sore. They're absolutely did it. Tighten up fought him probably is he injured where he couldn't have played the final three minutes. No I don't think he's injured. I think he's hurt. I think the bears aren't lying. But think about this. The Shawn Watts of the three quarterbacks that quote got injured on Sunday Shawn Watson Jameis Winston and Mitchell trubisky I would say watson's the worst necks sources damaged Winston Ankles deltoid spring which he should do fine from even though he's limping all over the field and tryst trubisky was the least of a free. But did you ever have to struggle. Do you blame Nagy for replacing a ninety percent healthy Mitch. Trubisky no look and in eighty percent. You said healthy to Shawn Watson. Play the Guy Right. You know a ninety percent. So He's telling the truth that I think there is something with the hip but you know what to say that it's only the hip and the hip was the only reason you know that doesn't pass the smell test for most people but I don't think he's blind. Yeah just maybe it makes sense that makes total sense. The bears get the giants this week. So either Chase Daniel or trubisky could actually be a good streamer and final. One Foia Flirt and let me tell you I think the decision I think this week you're going to see trubisky either out or limited practice. 'cause they need to continue the narrative But the starter on Sunday against the giants will be who met and he wants it to be too will be available okay. It's good to it's good insight and finally T. Y.. Hilton making progress. Some optimism that he might be able to play on Thursday. Do you think we'll see T. Y. Hilton I'd love to see T. Y.. Hilton heavy to office. They come but I and you know this is certainly a big enough matchup uh-huh against the AFC south rival. You know they're gonNA have to get past the Texans if they're going to try and win the division and so it's a big game. So maybe but you have to balance that against the risk of aggravating it and being out another three weeks versus skipping this game getting an extra ten days of rest just so hard to predict soft tissue injuries If it weren't the Texans in this big game I would say no but because of his is let's keep her eyes and ears open and see what happens in our fingers crossed and Dr Chow. Thank you very much for coming on. Thank you. Please follow him on on twitter at pro football dock and the website pro football doc dot com. All right we're coming right back with will and Chris to talk about some struggling offenses there's some quarterbacks of good playoff matchups and.
"shawn john watson" Discussed on The ThomaHawk Show
"Was it always footballer busted you have a plan and be football didn't work out it was actually Lebron James on instagram and crazy yeah I was GONNA die. Thanks boss for the question. Was it always always footballer bus. It was football or bus for very very very long time because I am all inner all out as you can see my work resume. I'm either getting in shape Orion eating chocolate chip muffins for breakfast. There is no in between so when it came to football. I always wanted to go to the. NFL and I thought I always could by the time am I realized like Oh wow I'm the only person on earth who thinks I can play in the NFL by that time. I had already put twenty years in so I could have done other things at that point but I'm like if I pivoted at this point after my entire life doing all the shit that I had to do because I thought I could play in the NFL. I would've felt like I wasted twenty two years of my life so I just doubled down and that's I'm like no. I am going to make this means something and here I am so it was footballer. Bust at that appoint buddy eventually. I would've probably like I do ach you made a good point. There and I think the common fan out there doesn't realize the commitment that football all players especially. NFL players made to their practice to their craft and about how many things it takes to learn just to be good enough to go out and be competent on the low field not not even talking about being great at football and there was an interesting video on twitter that I saw this week of Deshaun on Watson and he got asked a question by a media member they the question was like why didn't you take more shots or something real super super generic and he looked at him like are you Nydia. Did you not see that they were playing cover four and the only way you can attack cover for is if you have like the deep double moves and so he broke down why and how they tried to take some shots during the game but it just didn't work out and people were just like overly blown away. They couldn't imagine that in the game of football all this was like the strategy that we talk about on a daily basis and I think I commented saying like this is interesting because I don't really know a whole lot about coverages. I'm not going to be I'M NOT GONNA lie and say I really understand the coverage game but I committed twenty years of my life to learning offensive line line play and so when we went to work work at seven am and came home at seven pm for six months out of the year and longer and training camp like we were learning football just the same way as when a doctor goes was to work he learns being a doctor when a computer engineer goes to work. He's learning to be a computer engineer and so every day you're learning and there's a there's millions and millions of things to learn and so my comment was basically like what he just said about. Coverages is like what you learn when you're a freshman in college and you I come Domin- quarterback and like the knowledge that quarterbacks have about coverages and routes and combinations is so far beyond that that the average fan can't even comprehend the things that are going on and so I think from a player's perspective a lot of times you see them get frustrated with those press conferences because you have all these members of the media and fans and people like you and I get that want to talk about how why did he do this. You guys are dumb like your strategies bad like it's so simple. Why didn't you do this? When really has fans? I'm going to say I'm Athena. Yes no concept because the concepts are so far beyond so many light years beyond and what the average football fan or even the average person who played high school football can possibly understand that it's meteoric and I think some people bull heard what I said about Dijon Watson as it was like some type of a slight about Shawn Watson which is not how whatsoever I was merely saying that if you're blown away by what does Shawn John Watson said right here you can imagine if you sat in one of those meetings and heard Shawn Watson his coach talk it would be like listening to Chinese or beyond because the the less you understand Chinese my brother. He's eighty seven hundred very well. Maybe but like the conversations that happened in our meeting meeting rooms are are so far beyond that that I think it would be fun and interesting. Maybe for a camera to be in those rooms and that's why maybe hard hard knocks would be interesting if they opened up even a little bit more to the strategy side of things even though they never will but I think fans would just completely blown away with how complicated the game of Football actually is yeah. I think that's what people were blown away by that. It wasn't like me no play. Good meat may play better next game like yeah. They're playing cover four. It's hard to get shots adverse cover for that's the whole point of planning limit that and then you've got to hit double moves you gotta you know show them one thing cinnamon that I put a video out of Austin Austin explaining coverages because he's really football like he's I would love to watch that I'll send it to you but he explained zero one two three four covers six. How do you be cover for like WHO's playing the flats zone wise so he understands all of that but again he's seven so imagine like what a football ballplayer who again devotes their life to this their understanding of that? That's all these guys get there and Jimmy Spencer who is one of the advocates starting. This podcast works uninterrupted opted. He had the idea he was like. I don't think people realize what players do all week so they're like a lot of people think shop on Sundays Yeah and the rest of the week were just like hanging that with the kids I go practices two hours a day. That's not why you you get paid so much so I'm GONNA I know we're low on time but I'm GONNA explain how. The week of practice worked so okay Sunday. We know we had the game we show up to the stadium roughly about ten thirty depending. You know if you're there earlier later you play the game. You're done for the rest of the day on Monday. You're are an probably around nine. Am that's called sleeping in right. I mean everyone goes to work at night football players if you're there at nine that's like you're sleeping day. You go in you lift private about nine. Am To ten thirty you then go watch the film from the other day and you sit in meetings and you literally breakdown every part of the film and you have a grade based on what you were asked to do in each play and the best players great outright they great out pretty high and you know obviously the worst grade the better you have to do you get done similar to like a great skill that you'd you'd get in college so ninety percent and above a and that's good like if you great nod over ninety percent. You had a pretty good game pretty good game plus. If you play a lot of players right yep so you get done watching that film and you watched offense you have a team meeting do offensive meaning to do special teams meetings and you literally great out in every facet of the game you get done with the day probably about three o'clock and then you go to media so you have media obligations his most guys get in the Kota because you know you're still sore you. Call it up you re. Have you rejuvenate your body..
"shawn john watson" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Yes listen San Francisco's three now but they've been choppy and and they're young they're just making a ton of mistakes like Cleveland. Sometimes they shoot themselves. The Foot Baltimore loss to Kansas City Joe but that offensive line and that running game that time of possession you guys go to Baltimore. There are times when you lose games in this league and I come on the air money and I'm like that that is a good team. I I was kind of blown away by Baltimore yesterday today. What do you make a Lamar Jackson at this point and that offense well if you're able to run the football and the NFL you can keep up with anybody especially when you're playing a good ru- rushing defense on the other side of the football the concern that I have Right now in Baltimore is their secondary the way that they're having communication issues consistently on a weekly basis giving up all sorts of yards through the air? That's something that's going to be hard even if they do run the football and they squeeze the football offensively winning the time of possession battle when the other teams able to get back there and just throw an at will on your secondary that's going to be a big concern long-term but they've got the formula as as long as Lamar Jackson able to stay healthy to be able to run the football not only with Mark Ingram in their in their traditional running game with running backs but to have that threat of a quarterback who can run and then also some of the RPO's and some of the shots they take off of it. They're going to be dangerous and they're different and that's what makes them hard to defend and they're not going to be like any other team that these guys see and so when they do match up against the New England or cans yeah they're gonNA give them fists and they could really realistically beat any team in the NFL on any Sunday finally thirty seconds to a minute left. That's the best Wisconsin defense. I think I've ever seen I we can hang on Harbaugh that I said this yesterday. Jonathan Taylor's the best college running back. I've seen since Zeke and I include saquon Barkley. I think he's more complete I gotta tell you a- As a badger is this the best Wisconsin team ever well I. I hope you're right by that. I'm I'm not sure I'm ready to crown him. As the best team I'm from Wisconsin ever but certainly they have the makings of what rate Wisconsin team looks like and since I was born the best teams from Wisconsin were always teams teams that had a great running back they could run the football will and they had a really really tough defense but more than anything they were kind of made up of no name guys like guys that you hadn't hadn't been hearing about all year long. It was that blue collar mentality almost like we're talking about with Baker. Wisconsin teams have always thrived when nobody's giving him a chance and they have that blue collar caller mentality where they can kinda circle the wagons and use that as a rallying cry the whole year outside of John Taylor who you mentioned everybody in the country knows who that is you. You can't really name a Lotta guys on this team. I think that's just that's perfectly for the type of team that Wisconsin always wants to be when they're really good Joe Thomas. You're great played eight in ten thousand three hundred sixty three consecutive snaps. NFL Record your tremendous young broadcaster keep kicking but the podcast is called the Tomahawk show uninterrupted weekly podcast NFL veterans former teammates Joe. You're GONNA be okay. Baltimore could be tougher your brownies but after that I think there's wins on the horizon good luck well I appreciate we in Baltimore were in first place in the AFC north so don't forget that perhaps not lost one more heard the heard streams twenty four hours hours a day seven days a week within the iheartradio APP search her to listen live or on-demand whenever you like every Monday at this time I have strong opinions in many of you like them. Any of you do not but when I'm wrong I just say okay whiffed on that one here we go where Colin was right boy. I've been money on blazing five live four zero and one yesterday called the giants up sat called the Rams over the Brown. I said the lions would give Philadelphia fits and the steelers lost but covered now. I got some breaks. The niners basically gave that puppy away they try to anyway. I also do Saturday podcast and I do a bonus pick just on that and my bonus pick was saints would cover against Seattle so in the last couple of weeks we have been on fire. This is probably the early the season is the hardest for me because a lot of teams have new coaches. New Coordinators. Don't have an identity so it's hard for me to get my arms around teams in the first couple of weeks. I've in fact fact I've already made my blazing five picks for this week because I think it's easier now to see what teams can do and what they can't so we're off to a hot start. Where Colin was wrong not only the It's not just that Michigan lost. It's how they lost twenty eight nothing and again Wisconsin has the best running back in the country. Maybe the best offensive line and and this is the best Wisconsin Defense I've ever seen but where I'm really wrong on this is I always felt harbaugh came into a school and added a layer of of toughness. He did this at Stanford where you you you if it was a backyard Ali fight you would take a harbaugh team but urban Meyer and I don't think he enjoyed doing this called out harbaugh on this very issue. It's all about toughness and effort. That's the first place to start. I'd have a team meeting. I'd go through every play. It'd be miserable. Forget spread this that this conversation is well beyond this is there's about a toughness and it has to be it has to be how did that happen Doc. I mean there's gotta be toughness and has got to be effort because you cannot start saying that NFL players all over the field what we talking about here yeah they have no identity entity and maybe it's Josh Gad is the new coordinator I heard basically harbaugh hired him without a face to face meeting that's not great and I understand is a a college coach. You're losing coordinators. Constantly on Gaddis is known as a little bit of a self promoter. Whatever that's gyms responsibility at seven million a year you you know if I talk to Jimmy Johnson yesterday's two things you gotta get right? Is Your football head coach you gotta at the Offensive Line Right in the offensive coordinator right and right now. It's not working for Michigan where Colin was right. I'll say it again with Cam Newton. Stop telling me they don't have weapons. Carolina's weapons are excellent offensively in and Kyle Alan used all of them yesterday Curtis Samuel that great young receiver. Dj More to me is more talented Christian. McCaffrey is a little bug came at assuming guys strong and runs Greg Olsen. He's a hall of fame tight end talent cam. You gotta see him. Once in a while I saw kyle and do things like audible. check down out of plays. Check out of bad plays. stop telling me Camden now weapons. Now camps hurt now and I'm not denying that but this is not about a personnel issue. This is a CAM distracted issue by the way is doing instagram fashion shoots before the Games on Sunday. Stop It already where Colin was wrong. The steelers season Tober listen. I I said it then I said No. I'm wrong and then I watched them and it's over they've just lost. That's too many good people. I mean Levian Bell. They have no running game now. James Conner has regressed a Juju Smith Schuster not Antonio Brown they lost Big Ben They Lost Ryan Shazier and they've got good young players filling in Mason Rudolph Doodoo Smith Schuster and Devin Bush their kids. You don't win in this league with kids. That's why I didn't like Cleveland as much as everybody else and I they again. They can't run the show. What do they do well this morning? What is Pittsburgh do really well? I can't put my finger on it so I I do think now the season's over where Colin was right. We said the saints will be fine without drew brees a plus coach. Their defense offense is terrific. Teddy Bridgewater is a grown-up his flaw is drew breezes flaw which is he's not gonNA vertically extend plays Ace and and frankly they've got Alvin Kamara in Michael Thomas better than average offensive line this. This was never gonNA blow up their schedule. I thought thought this was the toughest game they stayed on. The West Coast in one and Sandra breeze isn't good but bridgewater is a reasonable facsimile. Same size is you know situation not drew but he's Kinda got the same flaw drew it until the ball down the field big but this is a very good organization and and we said I don't have them winning their division but I didn't think the drew brees six-week injury would be overboard and it certainly wasn't where Colin was wrong. Adam gays your team quit yesterday. I think it's the second time in two weeks they've quit listen I. I'm not a body language expert but it matters coordinator is about being smart head coaches about being a leader and sending signals and messages to the troops Adam Gates. I never overseas is pulled. The hat down skies out and this guy's out Hey Brian Florez is a big energy guys bottom line guy. There's no hat he's looking at me and saying we're not quitting you quit. You're out of here that at least permeates echoes through the Locker Room Adam Gates right now. I'm told doesn't get along with Greg Williams. this downcast this sort of negative energy. It's it's bleeding to the team. You know listen when you're bad. Teams Overlook Q. Miami should've let at halftime yesterday. The advantage to being bad is teams. Don't get up for you. they occasionally rest a starter. That's banged up a little bit. I Adam gays has been been disappointing. So far. Where Colin was right? We told you the number one issue with the browns would be offensive line. We said just watch out they traded away a very very good offensive lineman for Olivier Vernon and this has been the team's flaws we can beat up on Freddie Kitchens. Baker sacked three times yesterday five times against Tennessee three times against the jets constantly flushed out of the pocket now. It's a decent run blocking offensive line. It is not a good pass blocking offensive line so again we can weaken. There's a lot of ways to dissect this loss but the macro take on this. Is We told you you cannot you cannot have a bad offensive line and win playoff games in this league. You gotTa have the quarterback right the coach right and the online right and this online is is a problem where Colin was wrong once again. I've with completely on the Atlanta Falcons why DO I. Why do I keep defending them? I mean seriously there are tipped there. They they are a drop pass from own three every year. I'm like Super Bowl I over them. I am just over them. I mean by the way they bought endure. Cutter is an offensive coordinator very sharp guy but Matt Ryan's already got six picks in three games last year he had seven all year. Julio Jones is unbelievable Ebel but outside of Julio. I don't see a lot of stuff on this team. I love right now. They don't tend to play well away from home the boy they've been off to in a couple of their games. They've often really slow starts. Jacoby percent controlled them for most of the game yesterday. I can't get Atlanta. I'm over Atlanta. Where Colin was right? We've told you the New York giants had a plan with Daniels. They released that video and not a slow motion video with music. He's unbelievable. Then in the pre season they played the offensive offensive lineman the starters more snaps to make Daniel Jones look good then they were gonNA play. Eli The first two weeks against good defenses and then they bring him in against Tampa which didn't didn't have a pro bowl last year on defense. I felt from the beginning. This was an orchestrated plan. They would make him look good in OPD. Ta's they would play starters more snaps to help him look good and then they would bring him in in a nice spot and Tampa team defensively. That's got all sorts tissue. I do like Todd Bowles the coordinator but I I felt from the beginning. This was a setup to make him look good and they made him look good. Where Colin was right to the Shawn Watson? I said it when he came out of Clemson said he's not a natural thrower but leadership humble driven playmaker. He's a magician back their escape artist artist the the kids incredible. I'm not sure there's another quarterback in this league that could deal with the chaos on the offensive line like him. He's the best quarterback in this division he chance to begin. Stay healthy to win a lot of games and a lot of division titles. It is not a complete team their second area suspect and their own lines better on the left side but not complete how he dropped to the third quarterback I still we joke about this. Sometimes off the air people were trying to talk their way out of Deshaun Watson. He played Nick Sabin twice. Nick had six weeks to prepare for him twice had a total of twenty. NFL players layers on those defenses and they couldn't stop him fix. Nick Sabin doesn't lose with six weeks to prepare he split with him and he couldn't stop it. The Shawn John Watson's matching where Colin was raw. Finally game of thrones dominated the emmys again. I guess I e Sambas. Dragons and sourcres are still cool. How GonNA show that nobody liked at the end of last year win how to show that nobody can see one? They shot this thing in a closet. It's so dark can never you see the characters and by the way it's supposed to be in this amazing. I don't know is it time far away like the Fifteenth Sixteenth Century. It's not uh real. It's not a real time well. They're trying to make you believe it's not based on a true story okay but then how come there's a starbucks cup in one episode they left it was the last season and everyone was tired. Okay and there was a Ford F. One fifty and another episode parked in the back again and there's a water bottle. You can't win an emmy..
"shawn john watson" Discussed on First Things First
"The football down the field in now the have the type of control where I don't like these plays voice. I want these plays in typically. You see the best out of that quarterback so let's look and see if Kelly Moore and Dak that combination gentle. FDA If this is able to unlock the magic of that because he is a better thrower he's a stronger thrower and willing to take more chances and have better anticipation than any other deck. I've seen understand. Why did he look more comfortable is it the had more time in the pocket is that the war was calling? Better place for him is that it's this third year. What what was it that made him look more comfortable than we saw even without having Zeke it. I don't know if Nixon agree with me but it's a combination of things he started so many any football games he was going to be better. I don't care who was going to coach him. Because experience becomes a being in scituate Carson talked about being in situations over in over again and let's not forget those last eight games of the regular season when he had Amari Cooper man. They were special passing the ball. That was the best passing than we have seen that now. Michael Gal takes that next step. Randall Cobb is a serious NFL receiver. He's just happens to play slot. He started outside hype for Green Bay. He's got a leak route run. He's got a leat speed in the game so now from what they're what they're giving back to work with if the system was still still the same they still should be able to do more in it and Sanjay Lau for my final point told me they need to improve one area of the passing game that was deep passing the accuracy Chrissy and the timing of it and we see week number one seems to be paying dividends and it's possible the opponent helped as well. This is the giants building defense but I'M GONNA. I'm GONNA steal half a point from you and half a point for skip bayless because I think there's one other thing here which is even myself who's been skeptical of deck. I've given them credit not only for toughness his leadership availability but he also seemed to have something you want a quarterback which is the it factor which is the moments not too big form in fact he didn't play his best football in the biggest moments fourth quarter numbers very good comeback numbers very good. The playoff game numbers particularly that his rookie or against Green Bay he was sensationally during the playoffs. He was good so so you have that in on one side of it. That's from skip your point yesterday. He had just turned down a hundred million dollars. There was an element of pressure on him in Sunday's game unlike any other regular season game where it is in men. I could get hurt. I what if I have a three interception game we lose how so all of a sudden that `it factor that we have seen in fourth quarters in big moments big games in the playoffs. Maybe activated a bit. I know we're now Charles into the metaphysical but activated a bit in the week one game because he was taking a huge gamble on himself and he played as well as I've seen him play in the pros since that playoff game against Green Bay. That's the other element of this that if that's true that is one of the reasons why you pay this guy because what you want from your quarterback and do stay in the division the one thing we don't know about Carson Wednesdays. How does he play in those biggest moments because we haven't seen him play in a playoff game is a quarterback who not only stays as good as he is the biggest moments but gets better. We've seen that from Dak throughout his career. No matter how skeptical you're ovum you saw it again in week one man he's one heck of a leader. It seems like the guy's it's really like him and he gets those teams ready to go all right. Take a break coming up Jon. GRUDEN ready to move on from all the drama in Oakland. That's next in fact here first things first so now joined by former all running back Brian Westbrook as morning good morning on the south side of Philly nickname bribery only in the south side. We will not call you Brian with you. WanNa hear we'll get to the raiders without a B in just a second but I just one bri northern more than Iowa Receiver Dion McShane making the tough. Catch rose still good still in play. That's a touch to whistle these down. He's down but he was obviously not down great play by the receiver right this moment for northern Iowa sports since they upset Kansas and the NCAA tournament a decade ago the Mayan I football to Shawn John Watson picking up big yard achier isn't quite satisfied goes airborne for six held their collective breath in Houston and he got walloped on the final passing through the game the touchdown to Kenny stills. He's already in the medical tent. It's week one. I don't need my quarterback doing this. I don't I'll take the ball at the three yard line. The whole drove a bus last year eight hundred dollars to buy to cause a punctured lung now this mistake he's a winner now underrated more from this game checkout will fuller. He makes a tough catch. They missed his last year. They missed his deep threat. Last year. Will Fuller speed down the field. You can't do anything about speed in the NFL Willfuller has no. Do you think that they have enough firepower. They also added Kennedy steals man they. They're the team to beat in the AFC south off nick how many teams I guess playing for second place. Since the Patriots already won the absolutely right it occurs number seven Yup the other Monday night game Brian Westbrook raiders taken the win against Denver Without Antonio Brown Twenty Four sixteen year final on that one Derek Carr very good in his season season David twenty two of twenty six for two hundred fifty nine yards wasn't sacked once after going down fifty one times last year or Josh Shakeups added one hundred thirteen yards of total offense and two touchdowns after the Game Jon Gruden was asked about what could have been with Ab. Take a listen as much as people people talk about it. I mean my God. I feel like someone's smashing my temple on the side of the head. Get over it man. It's over you know we we. We were good preseason without him. You know we're GONNA be fine without him and we wish him the best but we gave it a shot and now knowingly gets their turn. Good luck to them but I just can't I can't I can't deal with it anymore. Really sorry not such a heartfelt good luck to the Patriots but Brian you think Gruden rebounds from everything that went down with Antonio Brown this off season in preseason it got really really ugly and Oakland and then he looks terrible for the way that he handled Antonio Brown stuff from being disciplinarian type of coach to really not disciplined anyone anyone in this situation. I think he looked terrible. Last year with the Khalil Mack Trade looked terrible with Amari cooper trade but I'll tell you this e winning cures everything and when you win a couple games and they're not the best team in the AFC. I don't think they're winning that division but when you win a couple of games that changes things that changes the way the people think that changed the way you think about yourself and if you you can get the same Derek Carr that you got last night that didn't get sacked at all that you can protect that you can get the ball now quickly the pre leg injury Derek Carr that on that first drive when ten plays seventy two yards almost a perfect drive. They had a penalty there no negative place if you can get that guy then. I think you have a chance especially with Jon Gruden because to me. He called very good game last night. He played called a very good game. He got the ball quickly. He made sure that he understood. Derek understood everything that was going on if you get that type of play they they have some some guys on that office that can play waller is a good player tyrone. Williams is a big time player that no one really saw coming from San Diego then to other talk. You're talking about Josh. Jacobs has a running back another running force and so they have some good players on that team. Jon Gruden has to be able to harness it and I think win helps all of that you know every. NFL teams got good players. Here's by default by Hooker Croup. Yes they draft some. They get some free agents because the salary cap not only do. We have a hard salary cap but we got hard bottom so they got to spend up to the bottom of the cap but I got a question for you. Who's your favorite coach played for. Andy Reid and can you give me some. I'm going to characteristic of Andy Reid nothing to do with Gruden but give me someone to characterists of Andy Reid y you be on national TV saying he's your favorite coach. He's discipline detail Toriente. He's going to hold you accountable. He's going to do the right thing as a head coach. He's not going to throw you under the bus and the other thing that Brian won't mention Andy Reid is into your life. Andy Reid his into the things you're into Andy re-takes time to get the newest players and their families to make some type of connection now Andy Reid. He's not known as a disciplinarian disciplinary but he's a no nonsense guy. He will give you a second chance but if you cross him you lie to. He'll cut your throat like that's the way Andy Reid is. That's why you got so much. Respect doc form right now. If you need some. Could you contact Andy Absolutely Jon Gruden. You never hear about any former players saying anything about oh reached out to him or he never because he don't have good relationships with this form where players so yes. If we stay on the field I do believe John is a competent play caller yes does he know how to groom quarterbacks Rex. No he had groomed any I'm glad to see car was playing well last night can jon call plays an NFL game absolutely but as far as cultivating relationships chips creating a culture where guys in the locker room and play hard for you. That's just not Jon. Gruden Jon GRUDEN got to make his mind do. I want to be a TV star are do I wanna it'd be an NFL football coach because in trying to be a disciplinarian you can't do both of those things and that's what I've seen since he's come out of retirement and here's where Gruden's to me really undercut his own cause and where you wouldn't think this for someone who had a decade of media experience. He's had the wrong messaging at every fork in the road when it came to messing chosen the wrong side of the four come by that I mean when you trade Khalil Mack the listen coach. It's super easy answer of listen guys..

"Quarter. Aaron had his big drive is ten play drive late. He couldn't get yet. He was three and out three straight drives. The star so chicago's defense going to own everybody in the first half. Will they be able to maintain that edge later in the game and at the end of the game they didn't didn't look as fears because trubisky's drives you know that he can't mount long drives all right. I i want to say this though it is easy to bang on the bears for passing <music> on patrick mahomes in the same draft. They moved up to get mitch trubisky. I'm not going to kobe. Bryant was drafted thirteen none of you none of you you. None of you thought patrick mahomes was going to be this good. Don't fake it. Don't lie. That's fake news. I didn't you didn't nobody did. I'm not sure any redid. Did i'm not sure the chiefs did and the big twelve had given us clunker after clunker after clunker at quarterback. That's the conference. That doesn't play defense. He was erratic in college. He didn't win a lot of games in college. I'm not banging on the bears for passing on patrick mahomes. Lotta people passed on kobe. You just didn't have enough film where i will bang on. The bears is drafted mitch trubisky over to shawn watson. They played in the same conference the same scouts who watched the a._c._c. Come on now to shawn watson. Watson played nick saban twice. Nick had six weeks both times to prepare could not stop him. We had all sorts of tapan to shawn john watson. We had him in the national championship. I set it at the time. I'll say it again yes to schon watson's critics critics. I was one of them out of college. He's not a natural thrower. Jared goff matt ryan the ball. Just few be okay but he had huge upside ride. Mitch trubisky wasn't a natural thrower without the upside like that's where all bang on scouts you can whip on patrick mahomes because you just just don't have enough video big game experience. He's wild. He's erratic and you're just not sure. Can we rain this dude would in but the sean and trubisky played in the same conference to choose trubisky over to sean..

"Guys look good. Hi fi coming up. Should the eagles still be favored to win the n._f._c. east after zeke's extension. That's next on first thing time for stories. Start your morning so yesterday. Calling kaepernick posted this edited video of himself working out with odell beckham chris carter. What do you make of this. I'm glad oh b._j. Got invoked requested to cap it cap. I need to see video you working out so what does cap do. He sent the video but he's in the gym man. I know you know you got body size and all that i need to see your throwing the ball bro. I notice not seventy eight quarterbacks better than him in the n._f._l. And he was able to show him guide he put the video out. There and i'm glad uh-huh b._j. Was able to get a workout. I want to see him. Throw one to n._f._l. Wide receivers. Obviously he's listening. He's not going to get an n._f._l. Job job. I the n._f._l.'s blackballed but i would like maybe for colin to consider the x._f._l. He obviously can still play and listen. Some people are going to continue to move the goalposts all posts on him and say well okay. We saw this and i wanna see this now. I want to see that it's never going to be enough but i'm glad odell helped him out by working out with him can't find a better to throw important within odell moving on tonight the one hundred n._f._l. Season kicks off with the bears and packers face off a lot of attention has been on aaron rodgers but don't forget about mitch trubisky bisky the bears quarterback entering his third year look into lead the team back to the post season chris. What do you expect from trubisky. This season is backed him and matt nagy the young coach there to continue to grow that offense last year. They did a lot of things like kansas city at the line of scrimmage. You don't know who's got the ball wide. Receivers reverses reverses tyree cohen dynamic player that they use all around the field but ultimately it's about your quarterback. Can you throw the ball down the field. I believe that alan robinson robinson came over last year. He should develop two years ago. He blew out his knee. He should be a lot healthier but you gotta make plays with your wide receiver and that quarterback. I do believe that he is a franchise quarterback and this is a huge year for in listen urine. You're three were the number two pick of a draft going ahead of shawn john watson and patrick mahomes. If you're the number two pick of a draft if the jets and a couple year i had forgotten about it. The jets a couple years are are looking at darnold as a gay manager just got to be a guy caretaker. It would be disappointing trump. He was taking three like the for the bears to be a super bowl team. He needs to at least this year start to truly show why he was taking his highly as he was antonio brown and a half on instagram last night responded responded to a letter saying the raiders were finding in fifty four thousand dollars that for missed practice this off season..
"shawn john watson" Discussed on Around the NFL
"Severely they have holes all over their roster. They are threadbare on their roster. The colts are the exact opposite. They have stability up top leadership if their quarterback doesn't make it they might be able to throw a backup quarterback in there and still survive. They are deep on on both sides of the ball. They have a plan. They're sticking to it and they are stable. All around the texans i to me the plot from armageddon pillow. I didn't see that film bill brian saturday asteroids multi has left himself with the only option is i've got to stop this asteroid so he's going to make the season more fun for texans fans but now texans fans are all wrapped up in bill o'brien's future not the organization gene who's got the animal crackers on bill o'brien's belly to shawn john watson sexy. I don't even know what that means. You're born age thirty two thousand nine i mean i don't think i missed much. This like bill. O'brien brian did what most coaches on the hot seat would do. I think if they got a chance which is make their team better this year and it was a disastrous <hes> <hes> value that got cloudy i mean i think a year of clowney is worth more than what they got and just seeing what happens. There's nothing more more to it then right because the fact that today and minds would understand paid him to go away that that's the thing that was crazy that they paid him to go away and it showed there was no market for for cloudy which is also interesting. I did cease reports at the eagles. Were in it at the last minute and there were some talk. I think you can safely safely assumed the eagles offered less that other teams weren't offering more which is interesting. There is the larger question in terms of building offense defense of whether clowney was was the guy that is worth that contract. I think that's a fair question but all the all the intrigue and all the palace upheaval and the fact that he didn't trade him. Sooner is the reason why they got nothing for him. Because you could have gotten a ton forum back in february and march we've been over that and it just doesn't make any sense. That's what they got back from. They basically just gave away. Let's hear from bill o'brien who obvious everybody wants to know why things played out the way they did that. They could plan plan better than they could've made. They could add more leverage and they lost all that leveraged based on the timing. Let's hear how a brian <hes> explained himself. There were a lot of talks that took place <hes> there were there were contract proposals between you know the the player in us that we just couldn't come to an agreement on you know relative to the franchise tag. The spirit of the franchise tag is to try to <hes> you know. Give yourself more time to possibly come to an agreement on a long term contract. We couldn't come to that agreement. <hes> we had several discussions with many teams over many months and we feel like we made the best decision for the team well so we what is as we in houston right. Now we made the best decision bill o'brien as more power than most coaches in the league right now and is showing point by point why you need a check and balance system inside of any n._f._l. Organization because it's not just this we'll get to the other move. They made as well where you're essentially openly being fleeced to. Some i agree. I can enjoy bill o'brien's ability to in the course of twenty. Four hours become one of the most radioactive figures in the n._f._l. That doesn't happen if you don't have charisma is manpower and you don't know how to wield it but at the same time i think that you look at the long-term texans fans can if you really want to have rose colored glasses you can point to what you added in terms terms of players in what is essentially become. A gopher broke year for bill bryant. He's got find a way over the next sixteen regular season games to prove us all wrong about what we're saying about the way the team is run right now but in less you're going to go rogue for the next four or five years with o'brien. Bill o'brien plan coach slash g._m. While.
"shawn john watson" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"Build this football team because all those years when the defense was the stronger of the two units on their team yeah they were getting in the playoffs but were they really contenders. When you talked about getting getting to a super bowl and the answer was no right. They had to get better on offense. They had to get stronger. They had to increase and improve the quarterback back production brian hoyer of the world the brock osweiler's of the world it just wasn't getting it done for them and bill o'brien knew it and now they have to shawn john watson and watson has shown that you know what he's more than capable they've given him weapons at wide receiver they brought him another one here in kenny stills and they wanted to make sure they could keep them upright right than anything else and that's why they made the tunnel move and now when i look at the houston texans okay and i know they lose lamar miller to they've tried to piece it together. They made the move to bring in carlos hyde here just to add some depth to running back. I get it but if you're looking at the houston texans right now if you ask me clearly. I think that shift has already happened to where you're looking at more of an offensive first team and i think that's how you have to be. I think that's how you have to be and moving away from today's van clowney and moving on from him. I think also add some testament to that as well aided eight say e._s._p._n. Is a telephone number. Let's say how to poland jacksonville paul. You're on the stephen a smith show well. Hello hello there mr how you doing so ball well. I'll tell you what now the j._v. and cloudy saying <hes> y'all even you know. Even though i'm living here in in jacksonville i could care less about this division. Yeah i agree. I i grew up in michigan so you know we're all so the thing about is would taping. I'm cloudy is just like yeah. He.

"So the N._F._l.? Network today bakers better than to Sean. Let me give you a few numbers last year Shawn Watson one eleven games Baker one six well bakers very accurate precision passer really because behind the worst offensive line in the League to Shawn Watson completed sixty eight percent of his throws Baker sixty four well well well baker yards to Shawn Watson check interceptions <music> Baker Fourteen to Sean nine in Oh by the way I'm not even mentioning the fact that one of them one the high-jump championship in the ninth grade in Georgia one of them. Maybe it's the best athletes in the League quarterback Deshaun Watson five rushing touchdowns and five hundred and fifty yards rushing behind an atrocious offensive line with no tight ends and no running game N._F._l.. Network are you just trying to get under my skin. Are you watching the Games now over the next ten years who knows what happens but in terms of leadership qualities let me remind you of something to Shawn Watson did last year with a punctured F. and loan. They couldn't fly into a game. They had the bus into a game. They went Owen three to start the season Houston and to Sean. This is what leaders it looks like to Shawn. Watson put the team on his back in one nine straight games history of the N._F._l.. It never happened in the history of the N._F._l.. Would never happened that. A guy opens a season Owen three and wins nine straight Brady didn't do it. Montana didn't do it. peyton manning didn't do it. Brett farve didn't do it. Why piddle probably didn't do it to Shawn Watson with a punctured lung behind the worst offensive line in the League did it you gotta be kidding me? We have a new guy in the league. That's the most disrespected by the way Nick Sabin twice had six weeks to prepare for the Shawn Watson and couldn't stop him. Johnny Manziel beat Nick Sabin once after Bamut Emmett played back to back tough games then third straight week. Johnny Manziel had a great first half and basically Sabin figured him out at halftime he had six weeks twice to prepare for Shawn Watson and couldn't figure him out Baker inherited a great situation veteran off into coaches pro bowl receiver fledgling superstar tight end tremendous running back group to Shawn John Watson's been dealing with an Albatross vigneault line no separators at tight end one great receiver but he's doubled and it's hard to consistently get the ball to people when you're on your back I mean this is the classic example sample of can we at least acknowledge what people are working with even Kobe Bryant one was shacking one with Powell Ghazal. How Kobe do in between that not much what it Bill Cower Tower do as a steeler coach? What did the steelers do between Brad Sean Big Ben? That's with great owners good G._M.'s Great Hall of Fame Coaches Cower and Tom. What did they do between Brad Sean Big Ben? They were the lions do anything a winning championships Lord. Can we just acknowledge that some people in life grope with rich parents. Some people grow it with poor parents. It's kind of an advantage Sam Darnold I know no you think darnold darnold inherited a horrible. Oh Line no receivers a good tight end who now is suspended for the first four games and Novak's you think he's GonNa struggle a little with a defensive coach. I mean come on folks. We we got consider what people in life inherit. Where do they come from? Do they have to the over the chaotic family a chaotic offensive line coat. I mean N._F._l.. Network at this point is just trying to make me mad. I'm convinced that that's the whole game now. And what can we do that. We'll talk about. I have tired of it..

"It's not agree GIS but we now have a new player in the N._F._l.. That is is completely disrespected in his name is Shawn Watson. He's the quarterback for Houston so the N._F._l.. Network put Baker Mayfield ahead of Deshaun Watson and this list by the way is always based on last year. It's voted on by players so one of my big problems I have with the American sports media and I I would say this is my biggest problem with the American sports media. We never consider what you're surrounded by if you're good it's because you're great in if you're bad added 'cause you're terrible well. That's not the way I'm doing the best show I've ever done in my life. That's because I'm surrounded by the best management the best group CO workers. We never in sports consider well. What does this guy's offensive line like? What did he inherit? WHO's coach coach so Baker Mayfield into Shawn Watson now never forget this Baker Mayfield comes into the league? He inherits Jarvis Landry a ninety catch pro bowl receiver he inherits David David enjoyed coup first or second tight end he inherits three good running backs. He inherits an offensive Guy Hugh Jackson and Todd Haley veteran offensive guys to Shawn John Watson comes into the League. He inherits the worst offensive line in the N._F._l.. Marginal diplo average tight ends they don't have any running backs of note and he has one great receiver. Which of course is always hard to throw to when you're on your arse running for your life so.
