five star rating and review it's it makes it allows to continue to get better see where we can improve c. which was likes to judge don't like and had an all in all it was just very appreciated and if you are a fan in of the NFL that i imagine you appreciated the games we had this weekend especially today and i'm going to jump right into it the last game that green bay seattle game i mean that's the game we kind of expected it would be i mean as i talked about the last august seattle it just doesn't get blown out i think in i think lost out on twitter so shorter so you can't really always stuff is correct but i believe that's all that in in like in a across their careers russell wilson pecos career together i think they've lost nine total game or something like that by double digits which is absurd word that is true but it just it makes a lot of sense because for whatever reason their team can't get blown out even when they lose they always find a way to get back into it and this game is another example of it i mean they were losing twenty one two three at halftime the packers drive down the field i i drive get davante adams on a nice double move touchdown for like twenty yards out and you're just like oh okay let's the clearly the bible was good for the good good for the packers i mean didn't help everybody this weekend but for the packers and abbas got off to another slow start i mean they the the only one scoring drive in the first half they punted we put it on their first two possessions gotta feel on the next one and then missed field goal on on their last one the second one because they had one that ended the half the house he didn't get any points on that one day try to hail mary bridges it didn't it didn't work though i mean look good it just they just they couldn't they couldn't come down with it but i mean going to the half down twenty one three after two more touchdowns from the packers won by aaron jones after multiple attempts from inside inside the one if i needed to get it on third traffic able to move the ball down the field and in their third touchdown was i believe again by aaron jail yeah another another one yard run by an jones this time they were down we got down inside first and goal for a couple of plays they were able to get ah cloudy jump off side on one of their down so i mean obviously doesn't really matter when you're that close because you can move up so far but maybe it'll be a couple of short touchdowns and yeah so the seattle's down twenty three and i mean if you watch the game from earlier in the day on sunday and you know that no we save eh anybody can teams can come back and the seahawks were able to do just that not the same way as as as a game earlier on sunday it but i came on after the half got a nice drive together we're able to go down score i don't want your run by marshawn but then the defense who struggled with throughout most of the day i mean they were able to bottle up and dylan's to a degree on the two yards two touchdowns and amazon had listened two hundred and fifty yards but he completed sixteen or twenty seven average nine yards and a tent and they had no one that pitstop davante adams i mean he was a man i'm not a man possessed but he was just like a woman record jeremy he he seemed like he could do whatever he wanted wanted on whoever was lined up against the me at eight for one sixty and two touchdowns so yeah the seattle showed with him and and it was just it was just one of those things we knew that they had one guy that you need to stop and they were able to stop him because i think the next highest guaranteed of receptions was jimmy graham with three korea than everyone else only had one reception so it was devante an was really doing most the legwork in packers passing game against seattle just couldn't stop him bs going by the second half touchdown they give up another to give the second touchdown to davante adams there's another another another there's one little bit deep in the first one is the forty yard touchdown but then this is where seattle decide they wanted to make the game interesting they go down again after after the back of put up twenty eight ten announce score a touchdown this time having pass from TD lock after nice scramble which i mean it seemed like was doing every planet that's kind of where they run their offense through degrees just like adam play action dropback even tried to get people opening he hit someone like crossing routes deep rows those new amazing deep ball argued one of the best in the league with envy's not just like i right disliked let them run around for like three or four how many seconds allowed times leads us acts but when he doesn't lead this either he he's breaking off runs empty did a lot today or he's fine people down the field for for big gains i mean like today at seven russia's seven carries for sixty four yards once again he was the seahawks leading rusher twenty one at thirty one twenty two seventy seven in touch down through the air the want to lock it in and why we'll we'll we'll give the packers credit for amongst ozzy winning the game was the the fact they were bottle of metcalf i mean unfortunate mentality lock it had had tyler lockett not DJ well tyler lockett had a good game in nine for one thirty six in the touchdown but decay who killed the eagles last week though in fairness a lot of people have done that so while it was great for decay not exactly shocking but he he had like thinking what was i think it was eight phone on sixty some item he had he had the most yard network eve in a rookie debut when the playoffs is three so they did a good job on him like i said antilock was doing his thing so the seattle gotta touchdown added twenty eight seventeen in long set on locking force it three and out come down again get another touchdown this twenty eight twenty three this was the second marshawn one yard touchdown gye-gwan conversion dingo and he got sacked arrested good and then they get the ball back they forced a force the packers to pont once again after they ran nice little stunt yeah thanks yeah she king in iran he was he did nestle twist a loop around inside no one block me too fast ask him and his brother was kind of a cool moment where they combined for his on air rogers versus the ball back and like oh boy here we go the going to go down take the lead and everybody's going to have another playoff collapse to the seahawks on his record but luckily the packers defense said that they they were not going to allow that to happen as they got the see also third-down oppressive smith was gonna come with a big sack which was those vital because they said they were they were going to try to take the lead surprise i mean not that surprising because the conservative when it comes to these type of things things but they didn't go for the go for the golden gopher on fourth and eleven my two forty left which i mean i get the you're at your own thirty six if you give them the ball there is busy a guaranteed a field goal but at the same time it's like you didn't get the ball back again after that so it's like if you have the walmart as well use all four downs of you could but they decided not to is what it is to punt the ball back packers and the pack label multiple third and longs one to davante adams on a on a nice little slot fade on google media the corner with the SAT's up over the top let them get outside and there was a perfect throw i mean amrs had needed to be perfect often this season but when they needed him to be in this game he was and that was one of the examples then later on in the drive they convert a third and nine into jimmy graham which is going to lead allowed constant controversy in a lot of talk on social media in the coming days in and talk radio on those tito's TV networks about about it just because it looked like in the screen shots that he was short and in the replay looked like he was short look like he came down before the first down marker but the gave them a spot on the field field and in lambo they weren't going to overturn for whatever whatever that's worth so i know if you guys like oh bio bala that's you have you have a bouquets for that in in this specific ploughs there are many other places throughout the game and help decided it wasn't just as one play but in my opinion zero should have got the ball back with a chance because nobody was short at least come out mood wall back measuring they'd package probably go for them fourth-down maybe get it and then that doesn't really matter but just the fact they award the first down by a healthy margin to william close enough to spot and like the czech spa on it was kind of interesting to me especially after earlier in this game the referees ries had another blunder where house or fumbled and the referee literally takes the ball out of the packers players hand as on the ground but somehow somehow they ruled that it was not a recovery the packers won because they didn't that because i think they were up seven nothing have you of they're up seven nothing town the packers words that could have been fourteen nothing had had the packers lost doubt have been a big thing but because they didn't that power kept under the rug a little bit also because they had the player in the game i know this same referee off the same crew through the same referee refereed the eagles cowboys game look the second game last year which you don't know what happened there the first play jordan was returning the kickoff malcolm gangs force fumble like six eagles guys fall on it or are on top of the ball one guy comes out of the pile with the ball and they will no clear recovery which was a disaster and that you will end up losing that game they might have ended up losing it anyway even if they got that but it was just like if you if if you're a fan of either of those teams you remember that referees referee from that same situation is just like when you see it was when in the eagle situation the rule is that there's only only one team on top of the ball then that the ball goes to them you if you don't know specific player they didn't they didn't they didn't rule it that way that's neither here nor there i'm just saying the packers lost his game they would have had an argument for that for that nuclear recovery could even see the one guy i think changing sullivan had the ball in his hands if we take the wall out of his hand so they can spot it but somehow you got no clear recovery best whatever but yeah i mean that was a great game is the packers in always played close those competitive wild games in the playoffs this wasn't this is another one to add to that list but yeah is like i said if they would have blown another into seahawks that would have been very suffer down but luckily he didn't have to because they're able to win so no big deal and then the early game today was definitely really one for the history books just because the the not the titans which we will go on the next but the texans started this game came about as well as you can ask the team to start a game the issue for them was that the games four quarters instead of one quarter because it was one quarter bambu their hosts nancy championship but because it was four quarter that means the chiefs got the play three more quarters in that means the cheese could score more points and that's exactly what they decided they were going to to do as the texans get touched on the first drive on blown coverage on a thirty day they do a fake bubble kenny stills runs with feel no one guards i'm fifty four yard touchdown cool next snake was the three now and then on fourth down they blocked a punt for a touchdown oh okay fourteen nothing arrowheads a little allston right now next with us in the the chiefs were forced to punt the the the texas at the ball back they also have upon but they put tailback field upon because thousand clam game which it was turns up unfortunate for him was a big play for the texans because tyreek hill fumbles and then they recover the texans do two plays later score again this time it was too dan fails to shawn watson dan spells and then boom there twenty one nothing before you blink the text the chiefs then proceed to go three and out again the and it's like oh my god they're they're going to blow off the field at at home and i mean it looked like they were about to than the taxing the ball bearing drive down the field and this is where the game changed in my opinion william 'cause his fourth and one fourth and one from kansas city thirteen nine over the full one it might have been like might have been inches but like they caught her fourth in one and the decide side kick a field goal after calling a timeout and my my opinion if you're gonna kick the field goal just kick it if you're gonna go go forward but it when you call a timeout you can't call time out it also kick the field goal like you call a timeout to decide like hey we'll play do we have to run that can get us a yard and i think in the post game press conference villa brian said that they age then have plenty of life there which is almost a fireable offense in my opinion because you don't have a play any player in in the almost big-play she's at those guys had the massive laminated play sheets with color coded and section here sexually mayor bob while deputy both double-sided there wasn't one play that get that you were yard on fourth and one like come on that that's that's embarrassing so they take the field goal going for the absolute gill because if now twenty-eight ain't nothing even with the chiefs and patrick mahomes traps kelsey tyreek hill although sammy watkins cartman damian williams out weapons they have down twenty nothing at home tom is almost a death sentence in terms of like for their season but they didn't do that as i kick the field goal and then the floodgates opened and the chiefs decide k it'd be cool if we just like scored every time we got the ball in and like that's what that's what i imagine the conversation station between andy reid and petra homes you know homes like you know you know what let's try that so they get the ball next after a long kick return for fifty eight yards on the at the boy next two plays touchdown then the texting at the ball back and forth to pine this time for whatever reason they they faked upon on on their own thirty one yard line mind boggling decision because they have a guy in justin reed who is a safety who's not used to having the ball gulping dana sorenson person who who is used to tackling people had one on one they get they they probably got what they want in terms of you at one guy to beat one guy their guy didn't beat their guy bustle muscle than a turnover on downs don't mind in my opinion if you're gonna go for it there then how do you not go for it on the possession before that the seems kind of backwards to me whatever i'm not saying they don't they go for they don't get at three plays later the texans i mean the what's it called the chiefs are in the end zone and then on the ensuing kickoff will this time travis cousy the first of child scusi touchdowns of the day and then on the kickoff mm dinosaurs enforces the fumble the chiefs recover bringing down to the six and in three plays a score gannon before you know it like within i think thank within like five minutes time do the math here but within i'll give her day give or take five men probably less honestly that's how crazy this within like five minutes a game time the chiefs go from down twenty four nothing to with within one score score twenty four twenty one before you can blink before you can even blake and then on top of that so then they get the touchdown to drivers cousy after the fumble on a kickoff the texans then punt get the punt down down to the the tan the chiefs then proceed need to go eight plays ninety yards touchdown and take the lead before the half and and i mean once it was over like bobby to possession before him but like at the game's over in my opinion because you don't blow that kind of lead in in a quarter minder he threw four passes in the second quarter to take the lead you don't bought a timeline then come back and win the damage it's not obvious go i don't care who you are on what kind of mental afforded to do thank you app you lead in literally a quarter of play you're losing especially on the road like maybe at home you might have a shot but at on the road you're losing a game and on top of that he's got the ball back at the at the beginning of the second second half so it was like all right it's basically all but over i mean the tendons are like this gained in happen in like a bigger scenario because if they did did they would be getting all i mean there's still a lot of this but they're gonna get they would they would have replaced the falcons falcons fans and player asking this this would replace twenty three and just to let you know it does not that was in super bowl much bigger stakes but this is about as bad as it because at least this with the twenty three the founding bullied happened over the course of like a quarter and a half plus they have to go to overtime but there was more that went into it and this the texans literally blew a twenty four point lead in a quarter which is mind boggling how how can happen and the defense decided it couldn't stop travis kelsey because they were like oh let's double tyreek hill make sense but when you do that you then and leave traps kelsey wanna one and he won the rookie corner lonnie johnson who play kentucky last year and i don't think there was anybody in the SEC receiver or tight end that was anywhere near skill level of drivers cousy so he had never gone up against anything like this we'll until this year obviously but so he wasn't he wasn't ready this isn't his fault he he should not have ever been on travis cousy but he was that was what they decided to go with and it was a disaster mm-hmm chavis kelsey killed them all game he went for ten receptions hunting thirty four yards three touchdowns second happy with obama hamstring didn't even matter still getting opens those making catches me yeah long story short after the the texans it's nothing texans the chiefs scored touchdowns on one two three four five six seven sri possessions after being down twenty four or nothing outscored the jackson's fifty one to seven let me repeat that fifty one to seven they were down twenty four nothing thing and scored fifty one points after that to win the game fifty one thirty one like i think this i mean there were so many tweets going out about this but i think this is the first time anyone's ever been down by twenty yeah okay using candy is the first game in NFL history regular season postseason where a team led by more than twenty one points after the first quarter in trailed at halftime and i think this is one of the first time ever where a team has ever been down by twenty and end up winning winging game by twenty teams comebacker twenty one twenty points down sometimes not often but sometimes it happens but freely in this scenario areo i mean they were down twenty and end up winning the game by twenty points like they took the lead in and it was never that was the closest ever got again cletus they just couldn't they couldn't stop it it and it's like you're watching it happen and like after like after the formula oh my god the texans gonna blow this like there's after me if you'd like to know why they won the game there's no way offense keeps it gear it didn't and that's all she wrote i mean that was one of the more that second quarter one of the wildest things i've ever seen in terms of my football watching life just because it happened so fast like if you like if you were awesome at twenty four nothing like all right let me get food food for a second half you leave get food comeback and you're just like hold on what the chiefs are winning like what happened in like just like they scored three touchdowns in the span of five minutes of game anton it was absurd i'm sorry if you're a texans fan and you watch me walk through that collapsed i really am sorry because i could could not imagine watching my team due to the playoffs i really couldn't but it is what it is we get the chiefs and the packers move onto irrespective championship games and after this next and after this upcoming rake in the break that's about to happen in a few seconds we'll talk about the other two games from saturday NC who will be joining them in those games so we'll be right back after this hey hey i'm andy if you don't

back on so another day in completely different ways from sunday sunday just because i mean there were amount even know how to talk about how you word what happened in that texans baltimore game so so i'm going to read this to you all right in this game one team had twenty nine first downs once he met fifteen one team ran ninety to total plays the man fifty three once he met five hundred and thirty total yards one team at three hundred one team had three hundred forty five passing yards two who eighty three one team had one hundred eighty five rushing yards two to seventeen and one team held the ball for thirty two minutes a little over thirty two minutes to the other teams twenty seven minutes and fifty four seconds so if you read if you just if you don't know anything about the game if you have no idea what happened i don't know the score i don't even know the teams us look at those stats you would assume the team they had all that was more in first downs more yards warren time possession in warm passing yards only beaten rushing yards you would assume that team would've on right and wrong that would be the stats from the baltimore and titans game and in that team the team would most of those lesser stats the only thing the titans did better than the ravens was run the ball for more yards and they are more efficient in the red zone and apparently that was enough for them to get the win because they absolutely dominated the ballrooms basically what the texans the except like their defense also showed up so they weren't able to the the rams weren't ever able to really get anything going offensively offensively any for end the titans forced a couple of turnovers which clearly held on yet they just i mean if you look at how you if you thought about how okay how the times go to pull off an upset it was going to be derek redmond was gonna have to have a great game he did on the defense is going to have to contain the mar- they did not and ryan was gonna have to make sure he didn't make mistakes he did i mean the more in this game had over five hundred total yards of offense limited that for you again or is that again he had over five hundred yards of total offense in a game where his offense only scored twelve points almost almost unheard of again he threw the ball fifty nine hand which is absurd be a three hundred and fifty nine three sixty five one touchdown to interceptions options that's two recessions were part of the big thing had twenty carries for forty three yards he was there he was i mean you you could argue he was one of the best player on the field and it didn't even matter because the titans just they just they dominated hit them like before before the ravens even knew what happened they were down fourteen nothing and they just weren't ever able to overcome it so yeah like this game titans get the ball for us together upon the next drive the rams are moving ball than they get a passive little high from working dues goes through with his hands on his picked off kevin buyer and he runs about fifty even the markets a fifteen pound for grasping the helmet opening when he goes for the tackle then titans go down eight thirty five yards third the third and goal the drug dan health those jump off the janis from the two nights tombs often get somehow gets both his his feet in for an acrobatic touchdown okay boom they're upset nothing nothing too crazy than the next drive comes on the ravens dropped the ball at a big tide the forty five try to try to run the mar- get them there the gopher do they they run with amar does not work get stuff he goes backwards actually he didn't go back and read the game yards they get and william like that close either like it was it's pretty obvious he was short of the line next play play action deep shot to khalif raymond i believed who goes i mean just was a nice little like fake out or like corner posts kind of situation is only catch the game because ryan tannehill only two eight yards we'll get to that in a second the shakes marlon humphrey runs runs the download if you for a touchdown mom play forty five yards next the ravens are down fourteen nothing and this is basically what they avoided all year was getting these big deficits and you could see that this team is not acquit whether it be if you wanna say it's the mars a passer but i more sites just the weapons that they he has to the ball to they're they're not going to play from behind they're a team that runs their offense through their running backs and they're running quarterback and tight ends they have one fast receiver i mean you still he's been he's indecent share but hollywood brown's in atlanta to injury and outside of that they don't really have a whole lot at the receiver position then they got like three a very solid tight ends but as the eagles can have the same struggle with like if your best plastic as if your best pass catches are tight ends then you're not really that difficult of a passing offense to stop because they can only because unless you're minding them up on the outside side they were the all mainly worked in the middle of the field you can you can congest the middle of field in playmate coverage on the outside enforce the beach you and the ravens couldn't do that consistently also also i mean the more missing passes here and there but like i said they didn't even have anybody too young we have too much outside to throw it to and i mean the ravens were able to cut fourteen point deficit a little bit they got it to fourteen sex with two field goals though a lot of those those are two very long on drives with the where they would have dropped the ball down the field they kind of stalled out on down they kind of struggled on third down all night really i'm trying to see if i could find year they were not take the back it unreachable that bad they were eleven eighty third issue was fourth down which is more on the second in half where they but even in the first half they had the one third down convergent they tried and they weren't able to get coming out of the halftime aforethought again you try to quarterback sneak but for whatever reason lamar went to the outside world margot's the outside when he could've just went forward i mean and i'm not i'm lamar's the one of the most electrifying players i've ever seen especially this young or this early into his career so i'm not gonna tell them how to run the ball because he knows how knows what he's doing but that his decision there to just go forward on quarterbacks knee which is what most people do and try to go around the end and he tried to stop the style try to double back daily work did not work at all and then so biggest apple matt fourth down on the next drive they get another touchdown after derrick henry rumbles on thirty one for sixty six yards which was funny because earl thomas had those comments earlier in the week about how the patriots in racing interested in china tack loan like we're different and that sound good until you tackle guys exists four six five to fifty play after play and just naturally you're going to be like no i don't want to do this and that one got hit in the backfield bounce off like two guys and ran through the military defense and and outran almost the entire team to the end zone and then he got the ball no he didn't all year so then they tried to give it to the next they gave him the next play after that he got three yards and they threw incomplete than he did his best tibo impersonation nestle jumped as even know the funniest thing is that if you wash their play mark nolan covers marks marielle standing on on those on the right side wide open waving his hands like pillow derek please don't the ball it worked out chords caught it got as well feed and suddenly matter but it was just funny on you to watch just just mario waivers arms k. someone on the ball here that was funny the get that then the next the next dr i play play the market sacked get stripped fumbled the that titans get the ball back named six plays later they're in the end zone this time on on a gain of speed option earl thomas overplayed to derrick henry and their cannon jose off tackler in the end zone and it's twenty eight six and then the games all but over i mean the titans of the titans radio score one touchdown but it was never it was never really in doubt there's never any doubt after they went up twenty one six it was like all right yeah this game's over just because like i said the the ravens offense offense is built to ground pound and then passes the an alternative not pass their main thing 'cause they're emotional their best plays he's in the game came a couple of how a lot of them came with the mar- using his legs like breaking down whether designed or not just like breaking the breaking contain breaking pocket and running the that was most of the now's most baltimore's best offense in that game that works better when you're not down double would they just mostly gain even found themselves and it's unfortunate that this is how the season end just because a lot of because like we talked about in the last podcast martin martin have a good game last year either so she'll be like oh he just not a big time former oh did we crown them too soon of see i told you he was really a running like all flash and it's gonna come out in the coming days and weeks and months do off-season until the mark and prove himself again even though like one game it was not a season make he's still be the best player in the league this year he had a bad game are tom radiata bag game last week against the same titan steaming yeah no one's saying that he should no longer be a quarterback like it's just like just it's it of this game unfortunately allows people to to confirm the bias that they already had about lamar just because they are i don't think he's that good so me lately plays bad again and then be like see told you guys and i'm like you couldn't say anything for thank what they won twelve games in a row eleven that he played in so they've they've been waiting three months to say get these takes off and unfortunately the more you're giving me ammo by not playing that well but regardless it's good season from and a better season for tannehill who i mean just some of the some list asks asna schemer kind of absurd i think the not i think the titans i will start with derrick henry dare can we went for one hundred eighty yards thirty for thirty for one eighty two or one of you four you thirty mom sorry i did that was last week thirty four one ninety five he didn't score this week but he passing touchdown so there's that so derrick henry is the first player ever with a hundred yards in back to back to back games for three straight games playoff or not because he did it last game of the regular season in these verses chrissy playoff games and i mean who's gonna say that can do it again against the chiefs the titans of the first team to win two playoff games with under a hundred yards passing since nineteen eighty eight and lamar is the third player ever with three hundred yards passing one hundred yards rushing in the game and the first ever to do it in plow so that the game was a record breaker for various reasons and also the staff at CBS put up towards the end of the game as the only teams to win multiple games in the same postseason with fewer than one hundred passengers with the miami dolphins in ninety seven ninety nine hundred ninety two and nineteen seventy to nineteen seventy-three excuse me and the pittsburgh steelers in nineteen seventy four fund you enough so it's three straight years and all those teams won the super bowl and tie titans has seventy one yards passing last week and eighty-three tonight i think they got up a little bit higher yes and they got up to lowe's they got up to ninety one i believe none of the fence eighty-three because the sack so yeah defense for eighty three so shusha games were tanno hasn't yet to do that much they've done everything and art again have you ever keep that up probably not but for now it's working if it's not broke don't fix this i'm imagining they're gonna try that same formula though i do believe ten who's going to have to at least least try though for over a hundred yards next game against the chiefs from that was shot so that was that was a game and easy surprise the weekend i mean i i said head i wouldn't be surprised if we're on here and talking about the titans winning i would not surprise even times when 'cause they they were able to do the things i thought they would be able to do if they were going to win which their cameras gonna run the ball well got some turnovers they were able to stop the lamar and their running game even though mark ingram was hurt so that probably helped a little bit and then tannehill did they just enough and that's basically what happened though like i said i didn't expect them to dominate in the fascinate didn't win by double digits but like i said i wouldn't be surprised if they won and then and then even less surprising about most the vikings niner's game earlier on a day on saturday where the niners dominated basically from start to finish i'm at no point did you really ever believe that devices were going to win i take that back maybe a tightly the top seven seven after the niners went down the field basically pretty easily almost article i mean i knew shannon's giving a great game plan coming into this wanting that's so equity add yeah would on the field eight hundred sixty one yard touchdown pass from jimmy g. to kendrick born then the then the the vikings came down again came down the next drive yada got a touchdown this one indeed pass to stefan digs who made a nice nice nice catch reason and then they force the punt on next driving then then the after the nine is a reported the vikings bonded on one of their seven from thirty one two three four five six seven yet one of their seven three and outs of on the day this was a big issue for him all game i mean when you don't have the ball you can't score south part of their issue and the night has made the most of that because after their three now where they got sacked on first down cousins did by armstead than they try to run a couple of times then go anywhere they punted the niners came down scored even though they they they fumbled but it got overturned because i think your depot's down and that that hurt because i've been a big momentum swing and then from there they ages can we stop seven coleman and he just kinda ran all over them the rest of the drive to get into the end zone then they then they went three and out again punted then they got gift gift from jimmy g. right before half he does interception kendricks we try to donate your seven two earlier in the game but he the kindergarten this one you're go okay maybe the vikings tied up they wanna be able to have the field goal and then that was basically all she wrote because they didn't score again the rest of the game title not nice came out have got feel then sherman picks off richard sherman picks zovko cousins on a on a great play by him he he he was all over the playing man coverage kirk cousins not what the end do not even know where the ball was when the balls in the air but sherman joe sherman did he called it the a few plays later democrat running to the end zone again and he was great all night right for them i think he went over one hundred yards and that's the issue when you play a non asean because they had because he had twenty two for one oh five two touchdowns most of the fifty eight yards and breed only had seventeen but coleman both average four point eight yards a carry they only did the one care but he's the guy that you know they run the ball stitches like one of those things where they just can ride the hot hand let me so difficult to defend you don't come into the week you don't i know who's going to be the guy you get the way to the game and then who thank like coming home this game think oh maybe ten coleman this guy next week up the no it's like breathe game or this is the most games the game jimmy does like three hundred yards four touchdowns like their office can beat you in in different ways and that's that's encouraging such great play car that it can make it easier on jimmy g. and that makes it easier for them the office to move goes germany really he was he you had to a little bit more than ten to help not even that much you only through the nineteen times hundred thirty one yards a touchdown interception and two sacks but he didn't really they didn't really need them do that much defense was dominant never getting after kirk all day sanctum six times the one interception the the one we had a one fumble on upon that that definitely helped the swing swing back whatever momentum the viking trying get back to the the niners this was this was later in the game remember when fumble was was now this was trying to think and also before this was twenty one she is when it was twenty four time upon the wall back to the vikings to maybe thought okay maybe can get someone mental here make it a one score game they shares upon then the nine and get a field goal and that was it was already over but that just kind of ended whatever hope the the vikings hackers the tubes and after i had to go three and out three now go backwards on both drives and they had two other drugs ended on downs and yeah this is the this is the niners team that if you're a believer in the niners which i mean you have to be at this point this kind of the game we expected them to play dominant run the ball well jimmy you just does not just does just enough that front four gets after kirk cousins i mean nick bosa was a was a monster he was all over the place all game per arguably eighty one of the best players on what he was one of the best players on the field all night all day all night whatever you call it yeah so this i mean this so now everything set niners packers they already neither did the packers they smoked on before don't think it'll be that easy this time but i mean i know the nice house feel confident going in and then you've got the titans and cheese to titans beat the chiefs earlier this year actually funny enough with haenel so they're not going to be scared i mean they've just one two games on the road with one more game on the road and i know you're not going to be scared and can be playing as well as just about anybody in the league or especially left in the playoffs right now now he's been dominant been impossible to stop the chief of the run on so it's not gonna be simple for them but we'll see how it goes but yeah that's that's i mean great plows i'm expecting to great games again next sunday that will be talking about come this time next week and yeah humming that's the playoffs have been great so far my opinion like i said i'm inspected slowdown this weekend we get to pretty good games i mean people probably are going to be mainly amy picking the chiefs in the niners but i feel like an either both teams could win both games like i wouldn't be shocked either way to break down later in the week but i think there's there's no there's no there hasn't been any given us this entire postseason people thought the ravens titans was a gimme people thought the pay patriots times gimme peachy some people thought saints vikings was a gimme so yes there hasn't been in my opinion there's been no gimmes because there have been multiple titan teams that have come in thinking they're going to win and win easy and that's not what happens so that's the thing i love about the one game playoff it is very unpredictable and the these playoffs have been unpredictable i mean no one if known could would have assumed that when ryan took over in like week seven that he would be marching marching into area for a chance to play in the super bowl back in miami funny enough leah so that's been great and after after break we will be talking about the college football shame should that is coming up on monday so when you be hearing this that we happening later today and i discussed that who's who's gonna win clemson or clemson LSU we'll tell you who i think's gonna win right after this break and why right after this break check out the show that's built on the MMA from the UFC two extreme cage fighting but they got the fights covered check out

again i'm a s mc sports talk that's mc test network doc so both these teams LSU in clubs from coming to his game feeling differently i mean the LSU is coming off of a record performance almost from judge borough seven touchdowns in the first half eight touchdowns in total excuse me deficit was unstoppable four touchdowns over two hundred yards their defense was stifling oklahoma was never comfortable can do anything and then clemson had to fight they were down they were down double digits at the at the fight claw back guys coming in non line of due to injury but they they showed the heart of a champion reverse dave stave off a house state nearly get the job done there at the end with the big pick so yeah they come in i mean both coming also undefeated clemson hasn't lost since in since no didn't they think they've won willing twenty-five i know i know traveled lowest twenty five now i believe you've got to think before they had sean no no the kelly bryant kobe bryant every year physicians third year seven vinick to use yes so then kelly and they lost they lost the team that year i think in the playoff every year they've won like twenty five zero and they've been here before they've been on the stage before they know what it takes to win and they're gonna get to LSU team who i mean outside of the fact that they are they've been dominant all year and unbeaten like five top fifteen team top fifteen teams joe birdsville unstoppable maybe been the best college quarterback ever i mean in a season ever we'll talk about the next hot in the next segment but they got their defense arriving in the form i mean ever since granddaddy got got healthy they've been they've been killing it so this is going to be i mean if clinton people gaga coming out state was probably going to be one of the better games games in the year and it lived up to the hype and i think this one's going to be though i think this one will probably have a little bit more scoring in and just because i am not sure much like with what people thought with the mark jackson and the baltimore i'm not sure how you stop l. shoes offense because unlike baltimore for these guys also have three legit receivers have jomar chase who i mean what the have okay and totally have a quarterback doc who including the gospel pile has done for over five thousand yards in like fifty five touchdown passes they have two thousand dollars tomorrow cheese and jason jefferson and a thousand thousand yard running back and clyde edwards allaire who is actually going to be healthier now because he he he wasn't he didn't even need them to do that much against oklahoma now he's had some time off to heal up and get right so he'll be i would imagine he'll be more useful and he's going to be one of the factors i believe l. shooting justice inc doesn't case because clemson has a great pass defense so in case they're able to who stifled a passing a little bit of they're able to run the ball with allaire now out of use them just because like i said they he's been big for them while years they're going to need them getting this game and then almodena decide they have well they have the jim thorpe award winner when grant out whether you thought you deserved it or not is a different story but he wanted you have christian fulton corn was going to go in the first round was likely got derek interestingly junior who may will be the best defensive back on his team as a freshman and he's an amazing this entire year you got good good pass rusher jason was giving was making hurts is night and night is making hurt his night a nightmare in in the in the last final game and they've got good players on all levels of defense but i mean clemson office no actually trevor longs we know about that which is the craziest craziest thing is that job borough i mean this has been a little bit talk i call saw some articles about joe borough is having the best season ever for a college quarterback and may not even be the best quarterback on the field come monday night which is great thing about but like yet dr owens is if you forgot because he's got off to a slow start but like he's as good as zayn quarterback in the country so he's not gonna he's he's not going to tribes ET an who's one of the best running backs definitely is one of the most explosive running backs in the country to stud receiver isn t higgins and justin ross and on top of that they are mismatches i mean much like like the hell she receives are by just more so because of their size just both those guys are overlake six three six four and they just they big run good rousing and get the jump ball they give trevor loans a lot of wiggle room in terms of he can throw it it doesn't have to be perfect in those go up and get as was evidenced last last year when they when they when a beat them i put the beatdown alabama that kinda shocked everybody but i mean like like i said they've been here before the dunn's before so i don't expect them to be afraid of the moment but they may be catching LSU LSU at the wrong time because like as i said l. she's defense is rounding back into form into what people thought it i was going to be obviously they were hampden they were hurt a little bit this year by granted playing through some injury but since he's got back with think he got a fishy healthy quote unquote the text the game they've given up the up seven points ten points in twenty eight points the oklahoma bombing the score sixty three to me matter and author in all three of those games councilman jake fromm and then dan hearts had their worst like asking games of the year arguably arguably in the last three games so term lawrence's better than all those guys but is going up against a defense that is playing as well as you would hope for this time the season and then that coupled with offense that is i appreciate rate and passing passing success rate this season joe boroughs from being seventy percent of his passes has over five thousand yards fifty five touchdown six picks i mean the gun funds is no slouch either they are third in passing success rate allowed and they're also third in this act rate so they because they're good pass coverage average they allow their past they allow passengers to get home because they can cover guys pretty well and i think their their biggest weapon on defense is going to be he's gonna be the x factor if he plays well then cups in clumps is gonna have a shot regards just because they're clemson and they they have very players but like he's going to be a big deal because does he can play in center field as he showed in last game where he got the rivers able to track down the ball near the sideline and pick off justin fields oregon pioneer the line where he's been like one of the best pass rushers in in terms of like i think he's what like i'm trying to see the second team in stacks or something something no legal team stacks with six he leads the team in total tackles i would ninety seven also has three picks on the year six pass defenses forced fumble like he's he's been a great great whatever you wanna call linebacker safety whatever it is he's been great and then on top of that though the though the like the elite pass rusher they have a bunch of guys can get after they have i think what is it like to ten guys in total that have at least two sacks ex- latest down the defense going they're venables bring a lot of pressure so he could bring people from all over linebacker safeties corners whoever doesn't really matter he's gonna bring pressure he's going to try to get joe borough issues that joe boroughs been very good under pressure he's very good back there escaping escaping the rash a moving around on for keeping his eyes downfield finding down the fears you showed in the last games as he showed all season so there need to find a way to if they get if they let him and get into the backfield acfield they're gonna need to find a way to bring him down because just getting pressure on him like he's not gonna phase butch not gonna be phased by being under pressure and now elsie he has he's been very accurate this year i don't expect that to change and then he has great receivers that can even help them out in in the case of maybe he doesn't throw the the greatest ball he is getting receiver that can go up and make plays for him so the just just the pressure is going to be important but i the reason why i think simmons is going to be that big because he can do a little bit of everything and you can help take away a layer who's been a great threat for the LSU out of the backfield the issue with that is then you're leaving he's not blitzing or not like so then that hurts your past a little bit so you gotta you gotta pick your poison are you going to china blitz and get pressure on borough get the bottles quickly or you're gonna try to play coverage play man in play zone whatever you wanna do and just hope they your corners and safeties and linebackers and cover their running backs and receivers and tight ends which which i mean maybe it will work i'm not gonna i'm not gonna sit here and say that it won't work but it just simmons is going to be there little chesapeake in terms of they can put him anywhere you're like i said d they can put him on the second can put on they can have them blitz come off the edge come with the middle wherever and doesn't really matter but administering see how they i deploy him just because he's going to be basing else you've asked to account for and what he does and where he is may change what LSU wants to do pensively nice if you get to decide the ball they don't really have the elite pass rusher easier even chase on was great in the last scheme against oklahoma two sacks was constantly in the backfield constantly made dan hurst life like like i said a nightmare and and do you have to do the same thing as trevor lawrence who was not the runner that jalen hurts is but his ozzy much better passer and against knocking can refer the moment i think he's i think i saw a stat where he's lost like in the last six years including this year i'm use to total games between high school and college so the no matter how down or how far ahead l. she gets if they do get a big lead on them the never going to be out of it dabbles a good coach LSU so like well coached team and experiencing also they were in the national championship they're defending champion so they know what it takes to win here so it's not gonna be is not going to be issue for them but it's interesting to see how how these teams will be able to match of catholic the effectiveness of both they're passing games will be was important because that's i i mean and both i mean it's just like that's the thing they both these teams have great everything's like really it's like the south evenly matched like on paper so i expected expected to be a little bit high-scoring to be close game iron expected to be like take the i think els clemson one twenty nine twenty three three over is to take that bumped up a little bit to say like into the thirties like thirty five thirty one or thirty eight thirty five something like that i think think i think it's going to be a score and i think the one of the other keys could be in the red zone where else you kind of isn't as awesome red zone obviously with them they just can score from wherever they don't have to get in the red zone of score but if you can if you can get them into the red zone and hold them to to feel bose instead let them score that'll be big just to help your own offense out a little bit but he that that's going to be one of the case l. she was in terms of success rate is sixteen sixty i inside opponents ten eighty fifth incest right on i and goals in one hundred and fourth on i'm neil goal line so their team the dozen isn't that good once again to the red zone but like i said they don't really need to be because they can score from anywhere else on the field so so that'll be important PC how they do in the red zone and then and then third in third downs going to be big more the when clemson as the ball just because they've been a solid team nothing too great on third down and they were five or fourteen on third down against ohio state which is not as good as you would want to be an issue defense has been green on third down the only allowed thirty percent on the season which is nine best in the country and they've only been allowed twenty five percent over the last five games which is like i said when a there defensively rounding the form so red zone for dallas offense and thirty down for clamps enough going to be the two big keys and if whoever gets the edge whoever ends up winning probably that often have success in those areas just because i don't see this being like a high turnover game if need a quarterback turned the ball over a lot they don't really like the ball on though they're planning to good defenses defense so it wouldn't be surprising but that's not is back that expect like a good game coach well played high scoring enough though not like complete like fifty thirty five fifty shootout kind of thing but high school they both these offerings are too good normally a great offense great defense especially especially in whether it's like pro college at on edge on like this i mean we saw that literally last year with in alabama like even like the older clemson thompson alabama shots were there like he was able to do some pigs he hasn't turnovers here and there but he was able to score points and get yards on alabama and this is probably as close as to that alabama defenses clemson has played recently kinda lash it at a alabama cup guys out with injuries and stuff but i mean l. shows the more battle-tested team in terms of this specific season they be in great teams throughout the different points of their schedule we'll an-and clemson hasn't played as many good teams but they beat everybody in most teams being beaten by a lot i haven't scored under like thirty eight point since september or something like that so i think i if i have to lean i mean joe burning out of his mind LSU look the best in the country for like a couple of months now well i think it'll be close but i think as you probably wins but this is one of those games risk it's a toss up like the comes from wins am i shock no NFL she wins and my shock now if you the only thing i'd be shocked by if clemson wins by a lot of clemson won by double digits that would that would genuinely shock me now because they are incapable of just because l. shoes off so our expecting to get blown out and their defense plants along with them to get blown out either but that's the only outcome i was shocked muse clemson by double digits but anything else anything between their clemson wing closed usher win close else you win by a little bit more that wouldn't shock me because i mean joe boras playing out of his mind right now so you sometimes you gotta ride with the hot hand and that's what i'm doing in this situation because it doesn't myself show borough i don't think it's possible least that the cause of the NFL's gonna be completely different but at the college level someone's got to stop them before in order to make me a believer that it can happen because right now i don't believe so that's where i'm at and speaking the job borough in my next hour and talk about is this the best cod quarterback season we've ever seen some people say yes awesome

podcast dot com for more info hello oh you've got you s sports are casper but so is playing the best quarterback back ever in terms of legacy dust once if you folks down to one specific season now in order to complete this he needs to win on monday so if he loses all out the window because in order to complete that you have to you have to be a national championship a national champion in my opinion unlike NFL where like in the regular season you can you can have like amazing stats like the tom brady heavenly they went like eighteen in our different pay many years essentially what the broncos some of those years where he had great viruses and number has been they didn't end up winning the super bowl and he might have argue been the best quarterback ever in those seasons godfrey was different in requires you in my opinion to win the national championship so job our needs to win and probably played pretty well all in this game i mean he's played well enough to where he has the body of work already set where he doesn't need like he doesn't need like seven touchdowns or anything like that play well though for another three hundred three or four touchdowns i think that firmly cemented him as the best quarterback ever but yeah i mean when you look at the stats here as of right now magassa we talked about in the last segment he is at five hundred hundred in five thousand nine hundred five thousand over five over fifty two hundred yards five touchdowns six interceptions he needs only three more touchdowns from time epi record held by colt brennan for the most touchdowns in a season where he's which was fifty ABC's in two thousand seven and he's done all this while beating five teams in the current top thirteen which are oklahoma georgia florida auburn in alabama and obviously if he puts up a good game against a clemson the now be six that'd be sixteen he's done it against in terms of had some of the best teams he's done against the best competition that you could imagine all these teams and always quarterbacks that he'd be vying against would have to do this because they'd have to win national championships so you gotta play team national championship but over the course of the year is he's played good team after good team and passed every every single test with flying colors probably i mean before last week is greatest performance was ousted alabama game where he threw for a bunch of yards ars ranch is still ran for like sixty seventy yards something like that that just the i don't talk that had a had a good amount touchdowns in that game too so he was great but i think the to other quarterbacks going up against this honor if you will our venture two thousand five and cam knew in in twenty time dan now the issue for both those guys is just pure statistically they don't measure up at all like for vince young the team went thirteen no and he put on one of the greatest bowl performs obviously in their roles ball against you see i'm running for that touched on top of the fact that iran for the game winning touchdown he was great at every other point throughout the game he'll be one of the greatest teams assembled up to that point in in college football and that year he finished third in passing efficiency due for a little over three thousand yards and ran for another thousand so a little over four thousand yards total combined for thirty eight touchdowns the only ten picks and cam newton on the hand was he took a team that before before him when he and five and after him when he and five and he was basically the the the biggest addition to that team want them took them to fourteen now finished second in passing efficiency and his was higher than vince young he was at one eighty two point one on vince young was that wants his three point nine due for two twenty two thousand eight hundred fifty four yards and ran for fourteen seventy three so so for so forty three hundred total and had fifty combined touchdowns i think like thirty thirty passing twenty rushing shing i believe is around the numbers i will double check for you guys but yeah thing was around thirty thirty passing uh-huh and twenty rushing and then i think he he he had he had only had like six or seven six yeah you he had so let me i mean they're yes i'm pulling them up here so the one year he had thirty touchdowns passing seven interceptions and then then he had like i said the almost fifteen hundred yards rushing in twenty more touchdowns and then even to humana receiving touchdown to just for good measure i still remember the play where he is like he runs through defense like stiff arms like patrick petersen guy who is one of the best corners new generation wasn't cod instills in the brow and churches off with us down and look like any middle becky was patrick running slow motion it was an amazing play i mean everybody has those hasn't remember that one for cam those are probably the two best at least in recent memory i don't i don't know about an eighties and seventies and stuff like dabbling in recent memory the best quarterback season then probably just statistically the best quarterback season just because of obviously offenses have gotten better over the course at the time so p players putting more and more prolific numbers and staff and stuff so it's only fitting that are these regular get to be broken and the grazes whoa continued to happen further and further down down the line but i think in my personal opinion assuming xuming again this is assuming she wins on monday night and jeb caps off his heisman trophy year with a championship i like like again another assumption i'm assuming workplace well tomorrow 'cause i mean will i'm going to sunday night so i'm shooting his while on monday because he hasn't played poorly in a game this season so i don't expect monday to be the first time it happened so soon he plays assuming al wins i think you have to say in my opinion and this is the best season quarterbacks ever had does he has a chance to break near the chance to break the the pattern touchdowns record for a season he currently holds the record for completion percentage percentage in a season that seventy seven point six socio is how much higher or lower that goes up he currently is he's he's at the two hundred and four point six passing efficiency which is higher than the current FEMA's record and he will be number one after after like will who i think he's already currently number one because that was better than him was to of but he didn't on the played enough games aims to qualify for it technically so should be number one and he's he's already set the record for that assuming that doesn't drop down drastically so you're gonna have all kinds of those three three touchdowns or more he'll have the record for most passing touchdowns in a season and again it's not like when cold brainless at hawaii is like on a random good hawaii team mm-hmm this this this he will be saying record only national championship LSU tiger team which is a big difference and i mean the one the one thing that i would have to knock isn't the right word but one thing i think will will hurt him and maybe we'll bump a gala cam newton up to racing just because of the sheer level of town that he has around him again not his fault because you can he's he just has we have he didn't recruit these guys these guys just decided to come here but like i said yeah i guess didn't lasted me has two thousand your receivers a thousand year running back players on defense that are gonna be you NFL throughout the secondary linebacker defensive line as richer edge rushers lays multiple i mean he's going to have i mean tight end radi son who's not gonna not whenever he decides to go to the NFL who's he's going to get drafted and that does not his fault i think the team around him hurts his case a little bit just because the vast how talented those guys around now eligible had a lot of talented teams before a no quarterbacks ever looked good so there is that so gerbil his is different in that regard where he's taking the town around him and maximizing it well like i said when you look at cam and his team that team was eight and five before got there he gets there and then f. after these there in five again and like you look at if you go back look up the look at that roster i mean it's a good cod roster and yeah i mean NFL success knock contest it doesn't really matter but outside of nick fair let none of those guys were really like superb or college players like the there's one guy josh bonds was linebacker who still league michael dyer who was the MVP that natura chamber of game got so he had some off the field issue see kind of never panned out he's his leading receiver is the just a guy like most of those most often skill players on a team miami miami to the league for like warranty years fizzled out well borough has guys that are going on both sides of the ball that are going to be the first second third round draft picks and potentially plainly i mean you never really know how long they'll play in the league but like just didn't have the chance to go second maybe even first round if he has good combi tomorrow as was the betsy ran the country this year he'll be a first round pick when he when he ever he decided to leave ariza layer is going to go a little bit lower but he's still very good college running back nice that defense has two guys in the second half is going to go in the first round down another gun secondary was a freshman that could very well be a top five top ten pick whenever he declares good good good would address her and jason is climbing on the first two rounds linebackers in phillips and queen good defensive linemen that are good good like i think his name tower clark like there's a very good players on that team outside a gerbil but he's just been indian has made it all work so i think that'll be some people's knock on jobs how talented the LSU teams compared to auburn team but side-by-side staffer stat number two number assuming job boral out she went on monday job rose has everybody beat in my personal opinion i mean though for over five thousand yards though for almost sixty touchdown touchdown passes have doubled up single digit interceptions said completion percentage record possibly sent a passion efficiency record possibly like he's going to have records all over the place and then on top of winning the heisman and win a national championship i mean for one season i don't think there's any quarterback desmond better in my opinion you may be disagree with with me you're more than welcome to i'm i'm not the not the beyond terms of college football and stuff so i'm more than welcome to have a debate with you about this but in my opinion in job borough is the best again assuming you assuming he caps it off for the championship this the best season we've ever seen from a quarterback in college college just but you walk into disagree after this next next break we will be talking about the browns the browns have a new head coach who it is

soundcloud google play or anywhere you find audace just type t us nc in the search bar and we're back here again and see sports podcast run by GPS so the browns they will last domino to fall and everybody's waiting to see who they were gonna end up hiring the head coach they had had a litany of interviews from jospin awesome daniels to robert sil- defense coordinator for the forty niners to jim schwartz to greg roman i believe to eric b enemy brian debacle the bills off with coordinator all those guys they went through them decided now we don't make any would not we don't like any of those like some those guys but we're not gonna pick any of those and they settled settled sounds has a bad connotation to it but like the picked chemist fancy the offense as a coordinator from the minnesota vikings now a lot of the NFL is a what have you done for me lately leak so obviously his last performing at his office last performing performing performance now great ones were tied points against san francisco went against robert saw the defensive coordinator who's also for the jobs i know richard sherman had something to say about that on twitter earlier today which was interesting communion rod for his guy so not surprising and again one game and does not a season make you have to go off the entire body of work and this year minnesota vikings offense has been quite good and he's gotten career career year level plateau kirk cousins this year so i'm not surprised and also it has come out that the without see john dorsey building paul deepa desta was the main gaas along with the hazards hell we make decisions and policies deep edessa was who's a guy who tried to get them the big sean mcdermott over hugh jackson back in two thousand sixteen oz he didn't do that seattle it's worked out for the the bills and for the browns and then last year the inland side of things wanted comes the fancy but the john dorsey he decided that decided that they weren't going different directions and go with freddie kitchens and thus and thus that didn't work out either and now here are now that here again john dorsey out of the building parties paul deepa desta is still there and he finally gets his guy which i mean offer the bounce out of thing is a good thing in terms of like at least it sounds like everybody's on the same page because seems like from in the least i mean there's been allowed dysfunction with cleveland over the last twenty years so it's not just a new thing but at least recently there's been in seems to be like dysfunction often turns is seventy sounds like from this the from who the people wanted this is from this from seth weaker sham i'm a senior writer at ESPN he he tweeted out the body for dessus stuff so if that is in fact true and it's out of there was some conflict within the front office awesome who they wanted the fact that they have a guy they all university agree on granted is not that many of them and he's up to higher GM but the guy that they university agree on and off the coast will help pick the GM so the gym will be an agreement with that guy being the head coach that's important could you want from a a top down you want everybody to have faith in the coach if you don't you have we have situations they've had within the firing guys wanted to years in and or you have situation like jerry jones obviously different with the cowboys because he's the jerry jones the owner and GM but you have guys that'll that ouseley was portrayed by jean slater an interview during this week about how guys were going behind jason gareth back talking to jerry jones taxonomy like hey i can do what i want kind of thing and just like when you when you have frictions in the front office that that kind of situation allows you can possibly have you can have guys that would go to the g. m. moore the owner who ever talked bad about the coach because also that GM or that player personnel i mean that person now guard that football operations guy also doesn't believe in the coach that you can talk bad about them and that's not doesn't doesn't create a cohesive team and like i said us want unity from the top down and sounds like at least in some degree they might have that this year with with everybody being on the same page on who it is that they want and getting a guy that seemed like they like last year and they're going to come they're going to go with this year so oh that'll be good for the browns do i know how good of an off i mean the head coach comes fancy will be not at all i mean no one does so you don't raise hard to say whether he'll be good or bad add but at the very least it seemed like the the front office and the ownership will have faith in him which gives him more time i think the biggest thing with the browns they just haven't had the i i to known no has instant success there so because they have to get impatient and they fire people in the newer overturning coaches and quarterbacks and all this other stuff time and time again like if you look at cauti- an- and this is his third years ago i believe in the first year the team was not good i mean they had what the number two pick last year the number twenty seventeen i think they had a number two pick ended up they ended up trading with the bears oh no way no one seventeen twenty eighteen twenty okay that was that was three years ago before he got there got south africa how how they picked in two thousand eighteen there was like a top five talk to impact so it takes time to build a successful football team baby people want to situation like matinee flora did where you have an all time great quarterback and have different pieces of us need ask them a little bit to the defense here and maybe a little bit too often they are then boom you're albertine like that doesn't happen that often or guy like doug piece where they hit this hit on all cylinders one year and then boom you win the super bowl with the backup quarterback mike tomlin back in the day of the even hugo said this was because you have someone bill college players still there so i think the fact that kemps fancy has the faith of the ownership has a faith of the front office while allow him to struggle coming that's been the biggest issue with the browns they're been as much as they struggled recently they've just been too quick to get rid of people and i mean maybe maybe freddie capable in the right guy i mean he probably wasn't in huge occupied by either but it's like you never know if you don't give them two three four years in my opinion like ozzy the giants samson pat shurmur at least he had been head coach before so you got to expect there like MC head coach the first time if he doesn't have a good year this first year is that surprising no and it shouldn't be surprising to anybody that's associated with the brown just because because he's new team was seventy eight lash or seven and nine six and ten browse this year but names isn't then yes i think the bible six and ten this year so he's not coming in the team of talented yes but it's not like they were world beaters i mean they ahead hi speculations but the expectations are don't don't manifest themselves on sundays you either win lose expectations on we have much of a factor in terms of how you play on in between the white lines sixty minutes on sundays so i think i think also probably those those those lower expectations coming into this year probably will benefit comes fancy and the browns just because of the fact that new last year people know not to overestimate what the browns are going to do yet six in time for US but they are not going to arrest me what the browns could be what they could do so i think that that was not hurt them last year was that people mccain assume that oh we're gonna make the playoffs they're going to win the division blah blah and i'm just like let's see them play together win some games for four years assumes that things and then ozzie when he got off to a rough start it was a big day on the news and there was internal and external things and then we have a season that they had so i think this faith that the front office has in kim's defense he should at least by him some time to work through the growing pains of being a new head coach and i'll see people that put around and we're going to be very important for just to have some other coaching only been coordinator for a year and a little bit and then yeah he's only been this is first of all you laugh took over after they find it after they fired on d. filipo mike zimmer in the vikings did so this is only this is the first full year now seems a good first full year i mean kirk cousins was was had a career year and i think the biggest thing the two biggest guys that will be impacted by this are baker mayfield nick shop without awesome seeing what down was able to do in this offense should have nick chubby cited though ozzy they're not the same type of player of the same exact things but nick chubb is is capable of carrying ball inside outside also catching the ball out of the backfield is what they did with donald cook and then baker will be helpful because the run out of play action listen the minnesota purpose f is from the US from cody schuch at w. f. n. y. cody is browns writer and kim's fancy and appropriate for minnesota led by kim's fancy you clashed on thirty one point four percent of their drawbacks with kirk cousins which is fifth most in in in the league and baker mayfield heights caprice presented differential differential differential in the NFL player actually was ten point one percent in terms of percents better when they when they used play action so this is going to flashing every t- offense and that is at least based on this year some that baker mayfield does well on something that the browns should've you more and that's that's that's the thing that vikings us a lot this year and with an i mean with the guy like nick chubb that flash is going to be effective because whether or not they running the ball well and this is another the thing that the republicans won't be more analytically driven and the emily's will tell you don't need to be successful running the ball usually action and have it work work as evidenced by the clip of russell wilson talking to the CEO's africo near last week against the eagles which i talked about on the podcast cast he was talking about how whenever they play action the guys running wide open and the CEO's couldn't run the ball worth a lick last week against the eagles so player she did nothing that's dependent on how yeah well you're running the ball just the threat of a good running back and a good running game will will have play action work and they have the receiving tight ends to be successful doing oh yeah so i think those two guys chub and baker mayfield should be the most happy because they're going to be utilized in ways that i believe should make them successful and then thus we'll make the browns and their office for successful i mean it's not the sure some things up off the line for short some things missile defense but i think at the very least them getting the guy they wanted whatever that means is good for the browns could you don't wanna qassim the path of years as evidenced by flicker sham they've been they've got a guy who maybe not everybody was onboard on and that has led to some issues so so at least in this case you have a guy that analytics guys wanted the i mean they all have football guys because they'll have GM but like the ownership wanted so at at the very least that's a good seven now he's got to figure out how good he's going to be and we will find that out next year but the various he does things that the browns it should be good at or the browns the the browns players should be good at and that should then make the offense better and then opposite team will be better and everyone be more happy now we'll see we'll see what happens with odell if they trade him or not i don't think they should but i mean if they do then obviously that things defending the vikings had digs and the'll in this year mainly mainly digs because the was hurt but they had their issues in the early part of the season with noggin the ball enough but everyone was happy by the end so i think they may go through some growing pains but eventually i think jarvis in odell and whatever other receiver they have the iron joke who and nick job and maybe cream home if he's still there should be happy with that writing and then it'll be successful and bake will be happy and i won't we happy in cleveland and they may actually be above five hundred for the first time and over to them i don't even know how many years has been and other only team to not go of hundred you're better in the in the in the last decade which was quite shocking but also it's the browns not that shocking so we will see how that turns out for them and after this last break we're going to talk about phantom and simply bandwagon fandom and while i am not a bandwagon fan i think they may be honest something about way about the way we enjoy sports and i was playing what i mean by that but after is right after this break check out this show built around the women from the invicta f c autour one championship we got the fights covered it's the golden state media concept's women's MA podcast the latest news of coming fights discussions of previous matches joining us as we talked to in about the biggest names in women's mixed martial arts past present and future when it's the women's fight game you know where to listen to the golden state media concepts women's emanate podcast the bad on the d. s. emcees got after my so what exactly is it named as as defined by wicky how on the ways of identify a bandwagon fan may ryan fans are defined on sports fans who have shown no past loyalty to a team and own support them when they're doing well now most sports fans out there aren't bandwagon anyway fans most of them are die hard loyal fans throwing through i know i am for the teams i root for i imagine you guys out there same way free team that you for but but bandwagon fans now marietta fans have been around for a while but at least in my eyes they popularized with lebron bomb tom was one of the first players at least in this generation i can't account for the generations but in my generation that accumulated a fan following knowing that went wherever he went so i knew people nice glass which teams when you switch teams in the opposite switch back when he went to the cavs now they're laker fans all that fun stuff and and during that time a lot of them got verdict you'll that shunned all that good stuff for jumping teams even though the only reason why they were fanned the caz in the first place was because lebron but after thinking and more experiences in in life in sports fan i began to realize they may have been on something and this kind of thing really hit me because i'm a okay see thunder fans really hit me when when over the summer when the whole question of went down and poor doors yet traded and then subsequently rosca traded and then they got back like shake alexsandr danilo gallon are like a bunch of pigs and blah blah whatever whatever but it hit me because i was like why do i support that team like walk you're gonna have to ask myself during that time 'cause one i was just annoyed that they made the trade and he's given to his needs but secondly it was because i was like all right i've never been oklahoma city i don't know anybody in oklahoma city abn affiliation to the team no affiliation to like the fan base anything that was a famous because i liked k. d. in college i thought he was the best player in the country which he was he won't player of the year going to be great in the pros rose and i wonder follows career so then i became a sonics fan and then thundering because at the time i didn't have a team because i was what came to he's somewhere on this i was like oh seven i was twelve eleven twelve thirteen i thought it was like twelve let's talk so i have a team i was a nets fan when i was going on because my dad's a nets fan but lake after the after the kid and richard jefferson and bits car and all those guys kind on a disappeared and i disappear blake team i was like all right i don't have any of these team outside of that anymore so i really thought much then katie brought me back so that was the reason why but at that point as has been very well documented cases no longer on the like he went to golden state on championships now the nets like melissa melissa there and it was because of this sense of loyalty that we are sports fans have to these teams that don't that care about us now think about it we think about why you're fan of whatever team you're fan of it knowing because like your dad like them or a cousin like them or uncle or grandparent or you're from the area you live in a certain area like all right i'm gonna roof with local team bala but comes when you're a child and as we know when you're a child you believe things are things that you wouldn't do as an adult but sports fans the only thing we're not really allowed to change your mind your mind about the way you view the world about your opinions on mike politics mummy working like all all all the sports is like all right you may decision as a kid now you're stuck and i'm like why is that and i was thinking about the thunder i mean i'm still founded fan is worked out this year because it seems more enjoyable to watch and it's been like the last four to five years and i thought what about like the way like the bronco fans had done it and i'm just like maybe bandwagon fans are onto something because in theory what's supposed to be fun and enjoyable and escape from the normal life do you sit down for a couple of hours watcher team hope that you win if you win you're happy to lose you're not as happy supposed to be underfunded enjoyable experience but for most sports fans there sports fandom is not fun more enjoyable dimension thunder fan i've watched the team not make it out the first round the playoffs last three seasons since katie left before katie left is autumn lower three one lead to golden state warriors the home team that really could beat them in the west before then i saw them not make files because serge ibaka plan on one leg with a calf injury the buffalo the year after that it's all of them not make the playoffs because of an AD double clutch three that he barely made and the entire team basically behar for most of the season for that i saw russ therapist knee because pat beverley and dove is need during a time out for loose ball and that was one of the best team thunder i've ever had they were going to the championship that year you cannot convince me otherwise once they were they were going to they beat the rockets easily they were going even after trayvon they were gonna beat the grizzlies would it be like the spurs or whoever it didn't really matter pod would be in the heat because they would have been better prepared for better prepared for that stage agasi before that again they get to the finals they lose even though they should have been up to of after lebron foul k. d. on a baseline jumper to endgame that they didn't call in the missing i'm not i'm i'm not bitter at all as you can tell leander's like inga on and on and i think about like most sports fans that's all they if you think komo sports fans memories of their team ninety percent of them are bad agonizing memories like if you're say you're afraid of the texans like this this loss today i'm sorry to bring them back up again so soon but you're up twenty four nothing in a game that if you win you have hosted AFC championship game in houston for a shot the super bowl and you globally and you don't just like blow lead like slow like like agonize dislike it goes on and on the hugh blow it almost quickly as humanly possible in that you gave up twenty eight points and a quarter four touchdowns and a quarter boyle doubt that you will you allowed forty unanswered points and were outscored fifty one to seven over the last three quarters like that is a collapse of epic proportions something you may never get over it's going to be hard to get over until they super bowl sunday my get over thing about the saints saints fans have washout team google's on the last play of their season three years in a row two thousand seventeen minneapolis miracle pure luck the guy has happens though with on the tackling and take the guy capable of of bringing down stefan digs on the after that the the rams game goes over ten in overtime after the pass interference call that was blatant and obvious they didn't call i know saints fans probably still aren't over that and i understand why i wouldn't be over it either and then they lose in overtime after the pick and all that fun stuff this year they lose losing over time to kirk cousins because their quarterback didn't play well and yet is like the last play their season is watching colorado we'll push off on their corner in the down in new orleans major so that's the way their season three years and after something and we decided that we have to deal with the sports fans who was the dodgers if you're a dodgers fan you wash team get to the world series lose get to the NFC s and lose get to the NFL ESPN lose you've seen your best pitcher in one the best pitchers of all time full in the biggest moments year after it doesn't really matter situation it's going to happen and it's unfortunate if you're if you're back to houston if you're astros fan you watch them lose a world series in which they lost four games it at home then they get home of ange lost all forgive homes lose the world series me does win one of those four games in the world series no kate happen uh-huh who else fear brown van you washed your team many years ago leaving go to baltimore the team comes back and now has been a laughing having stock in the league for twenty plus years and like no no end to that inside rarely because this is supposed to be the year and then they were still a disaster different coaches different gm's than quarterback doesn't matter all the same who else mets i'd as mets fan as well so i pay attention a little bit have one eight six find different ways to disappoint you by july or august every year when a couple of years there the late two thousands of losing on the last game of the season to where if you win the playoffs when he i remember tom glavin i don't think he made the first inning leg you're just a complete disaster even when they do play well the NFC yes they get their jobs makes one of the greatest catches of all time i am no one even cares because caused bunch almost strike three on the outside corner and they lose in the NFC s at home is what it is um uh-huh yeah like i'm saying you can go through your sports fandom and unless you're like unless you're like a boston fans been born in the last twenty years a majority of sports teams have been disappointments for most of your life that is the fact that is a fact like most eagles fan i've watched them disappointed when it disappointed at this point win a super bowl one year where he basically took our entire fan base selling our soul after our starting quarterback got hurt so that we could win with a backup quarterback in the neck creating zone disaster was really worth it i don't know but i would always prefer it happened super bowl and most fans to but again that took basically are tired traffic this quote unquote song ourselves to get to bowl because as you've seen with our team who read by injury says then and i'm just like that was they've been around they want NFL NFL champions before they've been around for forever the ios app one super bowl we're about to be play the fifty four super bowl and a couple of weeks they've won them the most any franchise won one dollars equals his six six and has been fifty four so that means forty eight hundred years if they were around for all forty all fifty four hundred both forty years they've ended in disappointment for you seventy six super bowls and one seems the patriots who only really been really this good for twenty years so before then they weren't really much afternoon who knows what they'll be but never talk more talking about a twenty year period where they've won six and that's a lot six is a lot of super bowls were one of one like what three it will make three in four years and that's a lot and then but before then they were they didn't win anything or anything for awhile energy you're supposed to disagree i mean again all those teams and stuff are great but you think about sport to dislike you will go through every season and hope your team does not disappoint you in the most heart and gut wrenching way that's basically all you're doing a sports fan because you ninety nine percent of our seasons any disappointments us hope that your season doesn't end in the worst possible way and very rarely does that not happen like generally speaking like your team finds ways to lose if your team is good enough to make the playoffs they find ways to lose in excruciating waiting most don't just get like blown out of the playoff especially in football obviously maybe maybe bush might get swept or whatever like are you a chance danced in a one game playoff very rarely do team just give blown the doors blown off and you're like okay radish on fair rail you did have a shot at you you just found ways to screwed up and then you'd have to live with that for eight months the next season starts and hope it doesn't happen again the ravens well did they got blown are low blake was a great season all for nothing having literally nothing great season you go four months go fourteen into everything's great go get your by come first playoff game divisional round home game and your team in the team's doesn't even show up just like what like what i do deserve this i mean think about thankful the falcons fans out there think about them for a second they watch her team go to a super bowl gave up twenty two three on the painted patriots you're like oh my goodness we could really do this if you're if you're saying oh we could really do this and then what happened you know what happened i know what happened and it's just you can't erase that like that's part of NFL history in part of your team's history four forever there's nothing to do about anytime anybody anytime you mentioned into anybody oh you're focused s first thing i think of and that's an happen even after they want a super bowl i think that's going to be the people remember about the falcons that oh they would team the twenty three lead in like a quarter and a half to lose the super bowl in overtime and like that happened and that's gonna remember for and she's like why do we put ourselves through through this sports fans what's supposed to be fun with severe sports are supposed to be an escape why do we put ourselves through this agony year after year after year for what what is the purpose and that's where we're bringing back the bandwagon fans bandwagon fans while being ridiculed for doing this may have had the right idea hi dear what is to be fun and what is fun winning bandwagon fans support winners or their team when they are winning because 'cause that's when it's enjoyable to be a sports fan when your team is alwin eight to start the season what about fun why you tune into watch those games we have to explain lina to me why don't we do this to ourselves i know don's at my dad died spend they one on one on a record franchise-record losing streak and yet i know him and other draughtsman's retuned in week after week thinking i was going to get the win ended didn't happen for a while this is like why do we do this to ourselves house why what's supposed to be funds was supposed to be enjoyable and we lived through and most of our time as what's fans is spent disappointed appointed and heartbroken and it didn't have to be this way if we didn't shun bandwagon fans in the beginning and more of us could being conveyance it's too late for me to parliament for too familiar for most of you out there but it could have been that could've been us we could have been filed in the brown wherever he went he kept one's own supporting our team when we start out for now and then won't be lose four straight when our eight four four we go back into hiding because more fun that way i said it's too late for me out there i could ever be a bandwagon fan i'm too deep into the stuff at this point now by do believe going forward more especially the younger generation we more bandwagon fans because people like players like you watch sports sports because you wanna watch players unless you're like unless you live in a sports town or it's like like philadelphia or boston in warlike loss and not me ninety dollars sanders who they don't they don't really have the lakers you live and i guess like minnesota or or something where like there's sports the big thing they i think there'd be a lot more bandwagon fans because you're kidding like oh i like this player that let me go root for them and that's okay i understand why they would be like that 'cause you're watching the sport to be entertained into be happy what makes you happy walking your team when i'm watching your player do well so i get it so when you see a bandwagon fan at their you hear about a bandwagon fan don't shun them don't wear to them listen to them understand what they're coming from and why they're doing such a thing and maybe you two will be like all right it's too late for me but i did it and i think that's where i'm at right now i get it i understand why bandwagon fans are baying writing fans it's more fun to be a sports fan that way we didn't sign up for the heartbreak we didn't sign up for ridicule we didn't sign up for the agonizing defeat in and the discipline that comes with that we didn't designed for that that's not that's not why we can't stand these teeny became fancy teams you wanted to watch a sport that we enjoy and be happy doing doing it doing so doing and yet that is not how we spend most of our time the way maggie fans spend their time and i get it i get why people are bandwagon fans i didn't it took me a lot of come around i get like i said it's too late for me i can't do it just personally i just in my mind and my i brain the way i'm right it just wouldn't work but i get it and i will understand we're not ready to them because i like okay i just i just get it that's the way we should we should sports fans it's more fun that way honestly it's one but it's probably too late for you enos too late for me but if you're into a bandwagon fan again just just a pat on the back into slaves are yellow come on let's go watch his game together who cares who really cares at the end of the day it doesn't matter when they became a fan of halley became a fan of why they became a fan you're all the same thing who cares this watching game together and hope that team wins it's not really that serious at the end of the day it really isn't this so they weren't they actually the hard way doesn't make the wind from them any less enjoyable and doesn't make any listen to abu for you either like i could care less if they are bandwagon eagles fans when they won the super bowl how we're just thinking about the they won the super bowl i don't like none of that other stuff matter to me they want to i was happy for that i could care less about who wasn't use fans and said they were now if they won't like why does that why does that matter why does that matter to me it shouldn't let them be fans away they wanna be fans i'll be fan the way i want to be fans hands ensures that way but that'll do it for me here today on the g. s. m. c. sports park has been by mc podcast ask network as always if you haven't already

in front of forty phrase now he's he's footsie three glenn does surely IT three beckons at some stage where where we think that's going to be augusta there are set as you say the win over thirty five where do you would you write him now as a component layer glenn is tough plaza process up l. e. i. n. play when you get that at augusta east like when he won the tour championship low saw tracksuit down to the ground these days and yeah we saw at the opening was not feeling whatsoever augusta was brilliant and he needs his tracks these days i think you get him on a track way his still got these great of course hasn't gone the majors records and maybe that would prove just have reached but you know i think the key to tiger these first of all he's got to be feeding our k. we actually not matt to thirty five did sit penny yeah the author ended i lost weight not so good but had much yami way while i was gonna poke it the the big money but unfortunately just a place return on that one yeah feeling good of the night the record IT two wins now which is just phenomenal farley deserved as well as glenn said he is the greatest golfer of all time so it's not have that record is most requisite well i in japan and that really was a perfect result for them to get a tiger the legend of the game winning unbelievable crowds woods that performance in winning any other types from that gave up a couple of weeks ago on or matt ziama raza punto glenn but he's a place again injuries puts narrow again as a pros that when he's all he's trying still as good as is around and the headlines charlie major's when the potter is working he's an he's a massive threat because he's such a good ball striker reason absolutely colossus and yeah there could be more when you look at some of these tournaments on the europeans for the saudi and things like that what is no one there and you get big players being paid hefty fees eh dawson fan did you see it could be thawed installation fee i did say insane signing up and i'm sure that was the case here but it was fully justified with the japanese crowds as he's saying big crowds big money big stage absolutely shocking trophy i just looked bumper if any tiger as the as the greatest for this guy as yeah okay let's move on to portugal then glenn did you manage to catch match that stephen brown with these i went on the european saw yes or no yeah eight based on any hope as far as i saw the pattern is always better terrible just wanted to mention gary woodland showed up well again easy ready to win again do we think yeah the phrase lost weight old vijay's twelve two jobs they oversee he's gonna talk he would have drifted to an even bigger price in play and i'm sure he's a big loser imply glimpse outright free possibly he had a few issues shortly after he won the u on the US hyphen i'm starting to play well again he'll be enough one who should contend the lot next the bigger tight money will absol he's never gonna get any fits there's always shops we've his fellow south african brand stein they both need a good finishes and then they got them and yeah mortars clearly emotional lost his father brennan steinfeldt he had the tournament at his mercy but just to pull back nine really from him controls that we've brown who went let's come from in this week of course but i think next season we'll probably see a much better much more consistent matsuyama shout to the zone championship this week is i know totally of i've always been a huge fan of matsuyama and i think you know alongside so of john robin zander shuffler he's probably the next guy off the rank when it comes to win a rookie this season is secured his called with a really gutsy pot on eighteen so i'm more to come next year when he's playing it cool sees where he's been there before war thing he's a player to watch out for season okay good stuff right let's move on to this week thanks to a couple of decent tournaments to get stuck into particularly eh this year so a couple of nights stores this week but obviously for every i story there's someone out there who said no good weak and has lost that called say when we're off to shanghai and the WGC HSBC champions jog tell us about the course as a say shanghai so early kickoff off to a forty five AM on thursday fee bets what do we know about the try lots of previous winners in the field yeah shannon's national is i'd say he's gonna be cow dies tightly chris and say they catch nicholas reluctant language move away from it and they start planning in two thousand and five didn't become WDC until two thousand nine i played there every year paul from twenty twelve twenty and porto on a mission hills yeah quite impressive he needed to finish third to keep his cards i am scum win the tournament that was real gutsy display for him same justin waters as well finish tied second you know this is this is pretty much a power play track coming you look for the list of former winners and you've got you've got phil mickelson's one that's why such garcia martin the ones i'll be focusing on this week glenn the field not as strong as it could have been now steinar brooks no tiger woods not just complete bullet securities cog narain up shortly will win the must have been a good result was the king of the result is well number five hundred uggla for the last two rounds and fully deserves to win really any other tixx anything anyone catch the on the field monto take out of it was jiaxing draw who's klima dustin johnson bubba watson matsuyama justin rose and on this show flavors defending this week steve tiptop at sixty six to one it crowds i mean not helped by the waiver to to get tiger woods being matsuyama i think they could evolves for a better result really yeah it really was walk in malaysia on the right an fini's demand you'd go not to say young man wayne seven thousand two hundred sixty one yard paul seventy two and they've been playing for a while now i in european van co-sanctioned we've australia air in the asian fifty and one hundred fiftieth on the rice that abaya rankin so surely skin stars folks yeah these are the anomaly it was shorter than he is now on russell knox was a winner there have to be announced that power play but the certainly they've played well there in the boston that'd be the cole had sold out on the grains and chose you've mentioned to the given up on that ceo megan price yes well you'd be at that is five with is each vestiges as of things he wants to buy into banners a senior via wherever in some snow john raum nrp patrick i know process into shambaugh but certain mister mcelroy lawrence is he hitting the bachelor star sports okay roy just macro heads the best in jersey apply the we should be trying to keep on side this week i mean another guy up because corey applied well again he's been with the big boys network gateway cat oh shut up of anything to give brad unpleasantly not gonna side with him this week but he will have his backers i six to one shot and as good as he isn't as good as his years been if he starts the findings on the riots now he's thinking seven nine years ahead by your record is still there astros loss to the applied over the roads i'm parasite yeah the busy quality employees oh prices on mcelroy when there is such quality around him that has been his achilles heel it was an awfully obviously there's no cut here saw it could might be a folder early as he did in japan last week then suddenly it brings a lot of people in supply and there's so many good players in this field you know not necessarily some of the lied sunjay fleetwood twenty eight hundred since the rain salts i'll cut just quick clement of rudolph the greatest of form but they continue on from a on a week a random week and i wouldn't be like i wouldn't be too keen on taking the big guns are not lining up still going with an eight they glenn so you obviously respect in this one i think he sold amount ooh been reading about this course is long quality drive in and that is michael roy to say yeah it's down to the ground and there's no denying that on slot sluggish thought but wouldn't want him to be too far adrift because of such a crossfield no definitely not and yeah a thing as i say he's had such a good he's he seems like he's gonna crumble winning contention and he's just right the wrongs of the last couple of seasons you know he's won the vowel spots weiss and on the european open jabe you can pretty much bank in having a charge at some point in this to him he'll get four rounds and chances are he'll go low in one of them on of course does places who has been solid i think he's a great t to grain player and night this is a cool that's going to suit imperfectly finish the US tool did you ask press office yesterday yeah yeah the one that i get out there a long way covers millonarios one there when he was he's just flake is he wants wolves maybe a couple of years ago he's a player who's won me over slightly in the loss of eighteen months or so and he's been playing really well this season we've fifth of the tour championship and then as i mentioned won the european open before finishing eleventh and that was obviously probably one of the best went with field and a two thousand nine we draw offsides arrives aaron pretty good form as well when the pullman pook AC and the positive been in yes what we did say okay and every morning niche on the back nine who sought to an and throwing job but it was brand new safety so-called shrimps but taking six to one doesn't give you a lot of leeway really yeah it's no for me this week he's not fear who is for you who's the mine pick this we've seen for some time mika needs to leave but that's not much of a concern freshened up a bit colleagues of arrived in japan last week and played well enough finished poca superstar sports twenty marvelous and who heads your team this way in in shanghai glenn a big fight where we know thoughts on this day and branden's tons of brand name frogs atop take this week it's paul casey's in a shea shan regular over the years he's them he's turned up eleven times in east finish no worse than twenty third i want to give it to the top ten fifteen in the better name with the sheriff from sauce votes yes an six one rory mcilroy as well and i just think a bit more confidence for casey's always been a play that fries on being confident in them semi that he's knowing more flaky casey casey probably is an eye is attracted he loves he keeps coming back here for a reason i do think that he can get a win this week okay ramone is the process that's i'd say start that really will be good light brown hair tends to be at most courses where booth striking is to the fore yeah i just think that a six about five same that money for guide sometime this off the road yeah wayne's six top phrase nine salt things the two thousand eleven events that saw three wings i taught fives the open nearby army guys that united you probably attend in all other states i which is not very often you say he's lost we in august two thousand seventeen of backed him every week since then casually drew on the price you never seems to win but glenn thinks is time in seventeen closing sixty seven and ranked third in greens in regulation this week i think greens in regulation of stat lost week rahva makes just not quite go over the line i just miley doubt was that maybe last week was the one that he was so desperate to win the perhaps that's taken alvin free weeks in a row has come a lot who joins paul casey in your portfolio portfolio this week trump it's very hard to leave outmatch yama he's been britain lost the guys miss only ten million dollars up for grabs his world so he did eldest two thousand seventeen tonight i will attract is not great by the way the thousand sixteen by seven shots when he shot light the candle tiger hello and i very warm welcome to this week's in posted goethe post costs no purse it it accuracy alva to our show tonight six danes justin rose twenty two and sunny out twenty in one this last year and played really well and i warmed up nice had a nice warm up last week finishing tenth for his first start since september contending decent tournaments may be an issue and that's just the reason i was paul for radio i think he's got a great chance and wouldn't be surprised to see him win i'm sure we'll go he's my next best is the defending champions and the schoff lay who's ya es absolutely closets already mentioned a major winner in in weight europeans hole boys have played on the european school but i'm the obviously the PGA tour season finished in august and most of amman gonna turn up for the small and he's guy who's trained in the same direction racer pool take aside six they tied a and second indicates a safety joy i decide what area two thousand six hundred eighty ripe fast in boston last week championship it right number one aspect green in regulation bloomberg is just for show and again we come to that twenty free guide into that had full figures with five one so and he followed the wade with two victories again tastes great guy de been an issue he's right he's not the top twenty in grades or regulation law seventy events which is by the cop was was implying i haven't been playing that much really look free to fill it in a lot of them play more than some of the he has the good wakes in his old together and sei trained interrupt direction and i think you know it in abidjan way alcott who usually want for good yeah 'cause that's not as for biting japan when he was on the server since two thousand eleven if i v eight events this taiba it's all i'm all for the bucks out yeah finished second behind macro the torch low that was his last PJ star and he's ready to take that next kyla is what we're gonna guy with with an all the top lies with jay eight friends guy wade's awake event host championship savvy as to track the best players in the accident a time with the shuttle's the wide i all i get upstate by as betty waking on the stay ahead the trump yes the goal is just put up the WJC vote yep i think this season this is a big year for him he needs to go from contender to actually being a major major player and he's got this great fulham without getting out of the line in the biggest tournaments but he does play well when the precious only in high profile events i mentioned the torch is one that of course before in japan last week was not brand but he shot sixty seven and sixty nine in the last two rounds and should arrive in shanghai plenty of confidence i think he tournament when it was co-sanctioned european event in two thousand and eight years before it became a WDC yeah he's he's KLM on the european tour yes the field was weak but he still went out and did it and seven finnish national open as well behind jon rahm three of his four visits to shave shannon produces best finish when he was sick bonds schoff last year former has been largely forgettable sense but they finished second one is a player who i i'm not gonna put too much faith in him but he's got a great record terry not sergio garcia who hasn't played the and five nine and he won the BMW in the fight at the playoffs last year so keegan bradley i think a bit of a sleeper is in the running you can kind of grimsson berries ridiculous for short routine because i is oversee runner if he's still involves what processes still smokes it's the fifth day that trump bows are fifty roy who else do we like this week glenn in shanghai the decent price considering he's such a class act when he's playing well loves a meltdown as well he does love meltdown hopefully the sins you HSBC since two thousand sixteen but he finished ninth that year and four hundred twenty thirteen i never wanted WDC which is a bit of a surprise for player he's won titles around the world be did little pipe pipe now he's prime to defend his title he hasn't defended the title yet but i've not doubt that he can do it anyone else that you you back in this week i had two more the travelers in james but aside from that he's played that well and as such we getting a decent price on him and lost week suddenly came to life finished thirteenth for disease and the last one is a guy who is an infrequent winner but when he does win titles even wins big tide was nuts keegan bradley he's finished sixteenth for hiring offing fries at tracks where he's comfortable as well he clearly likes to hear a bit like i vowed rauma he's always a play their opening by nick avery he's an excellent ball striker and as i say i mentioned he's he wins big tournaments he's ES PJ champion he wanted w say a bridge stein in twenty twelve eddie's race moore and you mentioned you got one other on the right on your the automated AJ too young for his son full seven stops and allow he's not longest tae published by day definitely a good driver to go the three younger in with the coast and have another good wake okay good stops a whole show oh hundreds every reason to play apply while i'm what process say we got him in the automotive i mean us sir chimes that he can still get it done to drive next and he's lost four events assistant gained seventy dasa grains erector irregular a right now but wanted paul five foments which went outside assist on applying world is wake racing vegas to forty nine that one inch after and in the you mentioned that you were on the verge of trimming mcelroy sixes into eleven to two glenn is there anyone near the

at wins gonna play pot so we're looking at players who have played well on the corresponding courses by the coast no we can't really look at that for any a- pointers shuman we're looking at more current form than kooks foam very much i mean port royal is is shorter than that yeah i think we're just looking for players who are going to go well coast here who indecent nick chong very inconsistent rose yeah thinks i am is i am play just doesn't seem to be what it was a couple of years ago and that's a big concern going forward chiron sold the shanghai i should rank the rabbit sanderson fogs and set designer championship he's off seven event six times in the hospital rightfielder aver danny mccarthy heading the betting a solid player but not yet to be a top notch on the PJ

only pebble beach on the yeah he's talking to face him yeah he gets and he does that aw defray on the second day the seven on the paul w fray on sunday some just a rise up at the moment as ed design category at wentworth assistant grainy regulation seven hundred older shokai raising good as well it's having needs guiding site wake awake at as quite as good when he's on any all when he's off he's

to that abram top in south korea and gained confidence boasting wind into genesis championship always in every one of the icy the toughest hall of the colts without the watering from the dominated by a coulda done anything own into drank roxy like should i stop greenbrier right faith in driving distance a number one ingredient regulation houston i've been if any second and he would show eh people outside of the straight his what he did on i same radio having just lost delayed yet rotten in seventeen review how the power six they say and he looks they had right laid at arrived take it was saying he was behind how much stahl was the absolute man on the coon ferry tool last year one twice and recorded ten top ten finishes from twenty starts short him named player of the year eh glenn who who takes your on stolen well he's not my best bet but school harrington is one on my list as well comrades what plans at their you summed up perfectly a start really well in the PGA tour as well finished seven for the greenbrier sixteen for the sound of scientists femmes twenty eight in houston uh of course designed by the same architects so he's got four on on that sort of track he ranked fifth and greens and regulation on the cool ferry lost season which should hold also my best bet is week scottie chef lose a sixteen twelve scott star sports fitness bigger out that and this it carries full this way and in a very wait event a casino guy want better for that job for comprehensive argument and this is a robot joins costs he finished fifth behind glenn's mate lonzo griffin the trail tournament law season on he's tightened to adopt tools he's tired when he folks twenty second loss timeout invite folding rain director edged up with pity whole show AJ to win and the thirty sayings cow champion in good foam racing and i just think he's an excellent coastal play it didn't do much wrong last season as well it wasn't spectacular i think he finished one hundred and ten on the in the could stand around here and he's he's played well by the coast he played well in the bahamas at the start of last year and play well in savannah georgia last season as well so i think he should go well in this tournament and in addition to harrington of got one more for you give a man who is winning WGN allies will look skinny side okay who's your mind pick for the they stole them and then glenn biggest be one of these victims loss of that scott cutlass but he only missed four cats from twenty two starts and he finished in the in the top seven on twenty twenty five on seven occasions yeah excellent and down in mexico fourteen fifteen for pebble beach and loss two years and secondly the heritage in two thousand sixteen hobbits why behind the caps on this topic short track now you often struggled to get going on long ago says this is a to- topic track where he will win will win big big words from often gulf are what his wife jiang was battling cancer changed now in

Top 10 Kickers and Top 10 Punters in the NFL entering the 2020 season (Football 7/4)

"What's up? Everybody welcome to the picks podcast sports daily NFL PODCAST Brinson Bureau. Sometimes we do more than one show per day or sometimes we do more than five shares per week I. Guess is the proper way to put it. It's basically like these. Go to eleven for those of you. That like spinal tap jokes, and if you do spinal tap jokes, you're at the right podcast. Happy Birthday America it's July fourth and what can be more American? Subscribing to her youtube channel. Go, do it find. It was on twitter. It's it's it's. It's hard to explain. It's like CBS sports. Is Youtube Channel so you pretty much have to? Go to my twitter page at Winston or at six Pod, and you can find it there. You might be able to go to John Breaches twitter page and find it at John Breach. Of course you should be following him. Great tweets about cats and kickers, plenty of talk about kickers, which speaking of things American we were talking about all American kickers on this podcast like Ray finkle. Fireworks are going to be flow in Brinson. Because Bankas Einhorn Einhorn, finkle, what better way to spend your fourth of July, the talking about the top ten kickers and punters in the NFL I know you think of a better way. That's why you decide to host the show on the fourth of July. This was your idea, you said. Let's pull breach off his holiday. Where haven't talked about on the fourth of July and America wins on her two hundred and forty four th birthday I. think it is. Is Terrible. As a good bath I don't know. Is it and? How old is America? How old is earth? Who knows? Predict these things really science out the window twenty twenty. Now I'M GONNA. Do Quick Math WanNA preach. Point out that breaches right two hundred forty four. That's right I was doing. I was at a I can't really explain. The math I was doing, but it was bad. Anyway, breach station joining us on this on this American holiday. You Skip Apple, Pie. You skip top dogs. You just want to talk kickers. That's addicted kickers you are, and in fact we're also GONNA talk punters. How many people do you think? If you polled one hundred random people who are football fans. How many people could name ten kickers You know it's funny. You ask that question. I think that probably. A few hundred random people I think probably sixty or seventy could name ten kickers, but if we switch that to ten partners. I think I've yeah. I think the number goes way down I. Think it's under twenty because most people know their punter and there's a couple big name honors it. We'll talk about later on I. Think people probably know but other than that. I think the average football fan could probably four hunters. How many? How many professional NFL writers like? National NFL writers could name ten. Punish right now I. Have Serious we call them on the fourth of July they're drinking a little bit more like all right. We'll put you on. The spot named ten years I. The numbers not one hundred percent. There is definitely. People who wouldn't name? Should we call like like literally right now on the? Recording recording this law early, but you can pretend before the. Should we call? And see if he named punish. I I don't know Frisco. Could they I think he could i. go knows a lot about the week so I do think he would probably pull it off, but I think it would take him a second. To ask. Name ten punters right now. Princeton Texas man live. He's not gonNA for but. He. and. Former Hicks podcast. Member the costas thread. I think I could name ten hunters if you. I think during the season I can easily maintained punters, but in the middle of season. I just don't know like without. Looking at the list I would get to ten, but it would be I would have to do it in a way where I was like going through a list of cheap so. Anyway, let's get to the kickers. Kickers to. And you actually ranked ten. What was What was the criteria for the ranking breach? Well here here's. How I start off before I do anything I look at it is if If all the kickers were free age. There was a kicker draft tomorrow. What's kick? Her would be drafted I and. Because with kickers. It's really that simple. You want a kicker to be able to do basically three things. You want to be able to kick through the UPRIGHTS. Because if you can't do that, you're bad. You need to be able to make your field goals you need to be strong got to have a strong leg, but you don't want too much strength, and you don't want to have that at the expense of your accuracy, and a good example of that is my her of the cowboys who has probably one of the top three strongest legs in the NFL but is nowhere near the top ten list because he can't kick it straight. Hit multiple six yard field goals, but he can't hit a forty feel which is a problem I. also like wall. Jeff you've been taking the NFL for a long time. It is not easy to keep kicking job. We have in Carousel. All these players being floated every Tuesday after a kicker Mrs. Field Goals on Sunday. Kickers get replaced all the time. So if you've been able to keep your job that means, you're probably pretty good. And then obviously, this is the part that doesn't necessarily apply to other positions, and that is the mental aspect of kicking. We've seen so many meltdowns over the years in the past fifteen years, Mike Vander Jack had a huge playoff missed almost never heard from again. Just never recovered mentally. Blair Walsh had that huge one Viking seahawks back in that playoff game. That, one yeah, and then he was boom, just never recovered mentally wasn't able to kick in the NFL anymore. So there is a huge mental aspect of that, and so you want to see that kickers can handle pressure, and that also helps you. Get on this list, okay? And so it doesn't necessarily matter like stats. Don't matter to you as much here. I mean they do, but they. You know what I'm saying like. If you're not basing it on, so we talked to run. We talked running backs with Patrick. Walker and I felt like he was leaning heavily on. The actual production like Alvin Kamara one thousand nine rushing season, so we got left off I. Mean for me. I would put him on regardless of the stats. You're not leaning heavily on. Two Thousand Nine nineteen stats as a twenty twenty predictor I mean I am looking at the stats, but here's the thing with kickers. There's so many do. Is that like? If you kick in a dome and you have better stats than the guy who kicks in Denver or Chicago. And these cold weather cities that doesn't necessarily mean you're a better kicker, warm weather, kickers, or at an advantage which I'll talk about later, so you're facing different conditions. Some kickers do kick in domes. If you're in. The AFC south you might play twelve games in domes out of your sixteenth, so you never really have to deal with the weather, so you kind of have to factor those things in also so when you're picking these kickers. Are you taking them out of their element or you know what I'm saying. So like if if? Chris. Chris Boswell for instance. Right Yeah Chris for the Pittsburgh steelers as everybody knows. Double check. Boswell kicks in Pittsburgh. It's much harder place to kick. Would you then ding him for being a Pittsburgh, or are you doing these independent of weather? When you're selecting the kicker? Boswell so and actually Boswell was a name who came up a lot in tweets when our CBS sports HQ came out, 'cause people thought he was ranked too high. because. He had horrible eighteen season. Sixty. Five percent of his field goals I think he was dead last in the NFL, and why as as well no list, but then he rebound in twenty, nineteen had a huge year I think he was taught for an accuracy, and that does play a part. CAUSWELL is the seventh. He's seven. Most accurate kicker fell history. Let's say last year. He was eighth, most accurate kicker and you had another guy who's. WHO's a fifth most accurate kicker and they are only one missed field goal why I'm not going to hold that against Boswell because he is kicking. Heinz field is notoriously one of the most difficult places to kick, so if you're heading eighty eight percent of your field goals in Heinz field that to me, that's as good as hitting ninety percent in a dome because there's not guarantee that. Don't kick her Canadian. Yeah Yeah. Exactly okay all right so you're! You're giving credit for guys who have to kick in difficult conditions right so if your numbers are a little bit lower that I, it just depends why they're lower right now that we've gotten that out of the way depot was worried. This podcast is going to run long and he's right. Birthday rare. Let's get to the list checking in and the only reason he's on. This list is because you wanted to do a kick podcast. You knew if you include an eagles kicker he would. Then depot would seek you out to kick her podcast. And he did. You were right. Jake Elliott the. drafted. Yes, fifth round of the two thousand seventeen NFL draft with the eagles, the last three years eighty four percent of his kicks made He stepped in a twenty two year. Old Rookie has made ninety four percent of his. Points and nine of fifteen. Fifteen kicks five a year from fifty yards or more, but has a nice percentage from their breeds a. why did he check in at number ten for you? Fun Fact About Jake. He was actually drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals, and not only that, but the man who held his draft card and announced the pick. Was Jim Breach? So I forgot about that? That's right, Jake, why did he? Why did the Bengals not keeping? The Rain Ball. He he had horrible training camp so obviously storm now, but he he struggled badly, and at the time it was the correct decision, even though it looks like a dumb decision, apples kickers. If you guys making fifty percent and training camp, you know he's getting cut. Role, in the season with. Right you don't know what you're getting. But then in his rookie year like his third game at a sixty one yard field, well against the giants, and then everybody laughed at the Bengals. That's neither here, nor there obviously. Dima, what you'll remember this because I remember something to somebody, get hurt or they ego such a cut somebody. Caleb sturgis! Yes, roster that super bowl season, and then Jake. Elliott took over, but Elliott played the whole season right? Yeah, because it would breach, said that three he came in for that monster field goal against the giants stirred married. It Yeah Perry it. was. Dot Sturgis was around because Jake. Elliott didn't sign until after the bengals cut him so it was really really late. It was just before the start of the season so I think they surges played one game. He got hurt okay. Yeah. Yeah Kim searches suffered a quad strain is plant leg although less Bowen reports say hip flexor so bleeding, green nation, and was going to miss several weeks. As a result, they tested out kickers brought in Elliott Elliott. Mayday huge go against the giants, and is never looked back again. That's why kicker lists are fickle, right breach. That is what if you're coach and you bring in? In your kicker, your rookie kicker second game of his career second. He's ever played. The NFL and he hits a sixty one yard. That's going to give you a long leash. You're not going to get rid of this guy if he does have some rookie struggles, and he did have those a little bit during his rookie season, there was a game where he missed multiple extra. Extra points against the forty niners, but you're the coach. Saying what this guy hit a sixty one yard. He's making most of his field. Goals weren't keep them and the one thing I like about Jake. Elliott is that he has gotten better each season and that's what you want to see from kicker. His field goal percentage has just continues to go up his extra point percentage. Percentage has gone up every single season and Philadelphia, not an easy environment to kick in and the Super Bowl. He came up huge for the eagles. He hit multiple feels, and he is actually one of only three kickers in NFL history to multiple field goals of forty yards or more in the super bowl. Only three kickers ever done that Jake Elliott, Garrett, Hartley and Jim breach. He actually. Get as much usage I. Don't think a lot of kickers. Doug Peterson so aggressive about going for gopher to and the going forward on fourth down like you look at his numbers, you just data. He's just been. Tom Last year twenty two at twenty six, but a very nice eighty five percent. Conversion rate as kicker right number nine. The man, the myth, the legend speaking of tough places to kick Mason crosby. Crosby is absolutely one of those. We always talk about how. Frozen Tundra of Lambeau field is such an for the packers, but like it's not advantage for. The, kicker and this is why this is. This is not a job. Any kicker in the NFL would want but Mason. Crosby has had since two thousand seven, which is kind of crazy, and he's had a couple years in there where he has struggled two thousand seventeen, he only hits seventy eight point nine percent field goals. When you're kicking in Green Bay as a coach, you understand you can't read this guy out you bring in another guy. There's no guarantee he's going to be better. Especially kicking in that kind of weather, so the packers stuck by after those struggles in two thousand seventeen, he had a decent twenty eighteen, then came through last year with the best season of his career. This guy is peak kicker. It's like. Yeah! Five? Ninety percent by kicks. So, that came out of nowhere any last year. We saw him hit a game. Winning field goals, lions fans, I'm sure you remember he hit. The, packers play the lions twice did not leave at all. Either of those games with time on the clock. Mason crosby hit. Field Goals as time expired in two games against the lines winning both of those, so yeah, based on where he kicks came up last year. He's number nine. For the record basic crosby, eighty seven point eight percent of his field goals. From thirty to thirty nine yards over the course of his career, that's a that's a really good. He doesn't. He doesn't miss this chip shouters. If you look at even is bad season in two thousand twelve years, two of nine from fifty plus. He had that one weird year like you out. Two thousand seventeen I think people were talking about like maybe cutting him. In two thousand seventeen people are mad at it, and now he's he's really established himself as one of the better kickers in the league number eight Matt Freighter. Yeah Lions fans felt like Prater should have been a little bit higher, but I think. He came an good spot. I was talking about two things you want. Strength and accuracy trader is almost like a perfect combo that he's got. He's one of the strongest legged kickers in the NFL he's. Top, three strong legs. He has the NFL record for longest field goal at sixty four yards. He did that while he was playing for the Broncos, so we know he does have that super strong leg and his accuracy seems to get a little bit better every single year. But he was did have a slight down year in twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred eighty four percent of his field goals, so that is why he is number, eight, Eighty, eight or eighty nine, he probably would have been up fodder to, but he does play in a dome where it should be a little bit easier to kick theoretically. But he did struggle a little bit. In Two Thousand Nineteen Fun Fact Matt Prater. In two thousand, thirteen lead the NFL with ninety six point, two percent of his field goals made and kick seventy five extra points made every single one of them. That was of course peyton manning at a big one hundred and fourteen kickoffs, and then you know it's weird breeds like he fell off a cliff the next year with Denver. Or did you get committee? Get Cut. Here, what exactly what happened two thousand thirteen, but the always wonder like. Did his leg get worn out? Yeah kicking, trying to keep up with that peyton manning offense. Yeah. One hundred fourteen kickoff is a ton and seventy points. There's a lot of weird Karen the light all right number seven Dan, the Man Bailey. Damn, the man bail. You know it's funny. Is that the cowboys? You remember. This was a total surprise when Dan barely got by the cowboys. The two thousand eighteen season he at the time. Four or five years in his career, he was the most accurate kicker in NFL history. He injured his groin in twenty. Seventeen didn't really come back. Bounce back very strong. So, the cowboys kept them in twenty seventeen. He only hit seventy five percent of his field goals. A rough training camp got cut in favor of Brett, Maher and then. Seventy five of his field goals in twenty eighteen with the Vikings and it looked like this was another guy who was going to be over because he wasn't able to bounce back from his injuries, but he did last year he was one of the best kickers in the NFL hit ninety three point, one percent of his heels, and so based on what he did is first. Four years were he was one of the top three kickers in the NFL combined with what he did last year. That is how Dan Billy got to number seven on this been asking this question, but where's Greg's airline? Its current cowboys kicker. Greg the legs airline. Did he fall off the list after a tremendous run? Yeah, it's Eight years with the rams made eighty percent field goals, but just seventy two point seven last year. Are you out on Greg that is? I'm glad you asked that Princeton because Greg is not on this list and a reason for that same reason that Stephen Gostkowski is not honest and I'm glad you asked us. After the Damn Bailey ranking because it has to do with injuries, I do not trust any kicker. who was coming off an injury? We saw a few times last year. Ryan. Suck up with titans got injured last off season titans that have having the worst kicking situation in the NFL suck up career. Horrible Year was never able to bounce back from his injury. Adam Viteri dealing with. With an injury in the off season came in had a horrible year last year, Dan Bailey dealing with the engine twenty seventeen had to horrible years, and so there's no guarantee that they're line. He was dealing with a groin injury in two thousand eighteen. I'm not sure what happened during that offseason, but in twenty nine hundred and just wasn't good, and obviously the rams let them walk in free agency, so that feels like they may not think he's a top ten pick anymore and Gostkowski is dealing with a hip injury, which is pretty serious for kickers and. If you hundred percent healthy. He's the top five kicker, but I don't know if he's healthy and he's still on the free agent market, so he is also on this list because I never six. We mentioned before Chris the Baas Bosmo I'm just making a dumb nicknames for these guys at this point plays Pittsburgh kicks in Pittsburgh as well. Not quite top five, but sort of Boswell has been. What's the word I'm looking for? He's only twenty eight. Is that one verbal, but he's been at one point in time I think it was two thousand eighteen steelers. Fans did not like Chris Boswell. Unlike wanted him sliced and diced and cut on other everybody wanted him out, healy hit fifty percent of his field goals from forty to forty nine yards and two thousand eighteen. You WanNa. Be Hitting probably ninety percent from forty to forty nine. He was hitting fifty. He only hit sixty five percent of his field goals in two thousand eighteen. It was just a horrible horrible season Mike Tomlin was basically being asked every week. Are you going to cut the or you're going to get rid of them? But Tomlin stuck by him, and it paid off Boswell's one of the best kickers in the NFL. Last year kicking at Heinz field hit ninety three point five percent field goals, which is an insanely high number. Anything over ninety percent is awesome and let me say. This was one of three kickers. There were only three kickers in the NFL. who were perfect on extra points because you're not making every extra point. Ever since it's been moved back, Boswell went twenty, eight or twenty eight, and he's been the NFL for five years and three to five years. He's ninety percent more or more of his field goal, so if he had not had that disastrous two thousand eighteen season if he had hit, say eighty five percent of his field goals that year he would probably be third or fourth on this list. That disastrous year was such a disaster that we couldn't put them in the top five. Number five. A man who disgust me. Will Lutts because he's one of those freaks. Really has one L. His name. Like what are we doing? That's worse than wills with an S.. What are we doing I one L. will get the hell Outta here pal I'm going to start calling you wheels. Man Wills Brinson. I do know what sounded bad as a child so I feel badly is his name William and they shorten it the wills. I don't know. Maybe it's Williams. Although my my middle name is Williams, so maybe by parents should have called be. Wills will Lutts for years new, Orleans made eighty seven and a half percent of his field goals. He was undrafted coming out of Georgia state. Has made a ninety seven percent of his extra points. Just not maybe it's not surprising because he's in the dumb, but he's been he's been. Is Rock solid for the saints ever since he landed New Orleans. Yeah what's has been fantastic during his with the saints and I think that he was another one. I got a lot of feedback on twitter will. Why isn't lots in the top three? You needs to be in the top three. People do that. People take their kickers ranking a lot more seriously than I thought. I was ready to argue back. So there is okay. What is the only top five kicker that kicks in Dome I think kicking a dome does give you sight advantage because you don't have to worry about the weather, so you know he. His percentages should be a little bit. But he he had a great twenty one thousand nine season. He doesn't really miss big kicks and I don't think that. He should be in the top three I think he could eventually be in the top three. I think V is a good spot for him right now and. When you're the saints? You need a clutch kicker because the offense moves the ball downfield all the time. Don't always score touch. You GotTa know. You can get points on the board and we'll let's does that for New Orleans. Sub Four Robbie. Well what are you saying? I should be doing Chris Berman Voice Robbie good as Gold Gold Robbie good as gold or whatever he would say, Robbie gold number four remember remember what he was really good for the Chicago bears, and they let him leave can't believe that, Sean. We need to have a podcast Sean about that. He's probably still sad about. Letting Sean leave. Nobody would do that. Don't Brinson, is he? If this Saturday show. nope. mailbag one leg. But also maybe check twitter if you're hearing this, yeah. All right now. The goal actually had a bad year in two thousand and nineteen now, and I got grilled on this, but again I am always ready to defend my rankings with stats Robbie Gold did have a bad year, so let me say this. The bears dumped him. After the two thousand fifteen season twenty sixteen was Chicago he hits one hundred percent of his field goals, twenty seventeen ninety five point, one percent of feel will second the NFL twenty eighteen ninety seven point, one percent of his feels that led the NFL is what? What the bears like Oh now last year he hit seventy four point two percent of his field goals. He ranked in the bottom five of the NFL, but I am cutting him. Some slack in here is why number one? The forty niners had a rookie owner, which means they had a rookie holder. Mitchell now Sqi is from Australia these Australian guys. They didn't grow up catching a football and put it down to holding. It takes them adjustment holders, actually a pretty difficult job. I don't think most people understand that and you'RE A. You have to trust that. Your long snappers to do his job and the. Job before you can even kick the ball, so two things have to happen before you can do your job and so I think there is not a full amount of trust there yet. And then the other part is that the forty niners four different long snappers in two thousand, nine, hundred nine Kyle Nelson, normal star, got suspended, and how long snapper get suspended so while he was out. They had three guys with those three long snappers, Robbie. Gold went twelve of nineteen through the first six weeks of the season. That is a horrible number, so that is seven. Miss Kicks they. When Kyle Nelson came back gold finish the season, seventeen of eighteen, and he also hit. Two big field wasn't a super bowl. Three field goals in the NFC title game including a fifty four yarder so once he had his normal snapper back. He was back to his normal self. Also. You know. Eighty five percent field goals that were he made eighty five percent of shows are inside fifty yards. So that's good. You might have said that I tuned out because the HBO announced that curb your enthusiasm coming back for another season. That's exciting. Very exciting. Number three. Josh? Lambo you know what I don't know I this is probably the thing that blew my mind the most about ranking, so we had CBS sports HQ. Twitter Account tweet out our rankings and you know who I got. The most blowback from Josh Lambo fans. I didn't know Josh Lambo Jacksonville had fans. Let alone like fans of their kicker. Maybe it's because he's the only good player on the roster, but the Jags fans were out in full force ripping me for not having Lambeau at number to at least they well, my thirty, and some of them were trying to make the argument that he was better than just in Tucker, which is just look. If you gave any NFL team of choice to pick one kicker to kick them next year. They would all take Justin Tucker. So that is just hands down. He can't be an spoiling Justin. Tucker is number one, but so Josh Lambo had a fantastic year last season, the NFL feel percentage, ninety seven point, one percent, which was better than Tucker, he only. Only missed one extra point, but here is why Josh Lambo is not number one number look. He plays in better weather. He plays in warm weather Jacksonville Tucker plays on the East Coast and Baltimore work. It's called it gets Wendy. It gets bad warm. Weather is easier to kick. Somebody tried to tweet at me and tell me well. It's all humid and. Lambo kicks in way worse weather. It is easier to kick in warm weather. I think the confusion comes because you see these long field goals in Denver when it's called the best because the air is thin and the ball travels further because they're a mile high elevation other than that you take Denver out. Cold weather is almost impossible to kick in warm. Weather's better because the air is less dense, the ball floats further and football is. Is more elastic so bathrooms off your foot more you WanNa kick in warm weather. The other reason Lambo is not ahead of Talker or at number one is because he has less pressure on them. Look the Ravens Fourteen, the to ask every single WanNa Tucker spills big when you're losing a game twenty one to three years to come out and kick it feel there's no pressure, so we should be making his kicks and then also. Lambeau in the past three years has three MRS under forty six yards, which is kind of that line of demarcation. We're kickers needs to be good from under forty six and teams will accept a little bit worse over forty six and Tucker only has won miss on his own. He had a couple of blocks of only one that he actually missed, so Josh Lambo. You're not number one, but you are number three. which I thought would appease Jaguars fans, but it did not. Renew Justin! Tucker's number one. Let's the kicker talk by pointing out that a number two. Harrison, Bucker and number one Justin Tulsa. Is the only. I've ever interviewed. I interviewed him at the at the combine. How? It's really wanted to Georgia. Tech has a really I think. Three. He's very smart an engineering. and. See Right through the fact that you didn't know you were talking about when it came to kicking. Absolutely okay drafted by. His twitter handle fantastic at but kicker seven drafted by the panthers in the seventh round, the panthers actually cut him scooped up by the chiefs. It might be because Cairo Santos got hurt. Is that is that right? Is it possible? Just got hurt well I. Want to say real quick. The panthers were getting ripped for letting her go, but Graham Gano was a really. He's been battling injuries now, so it looks dumb, but at the time. Zone A on a rookie deal. which was grand, can't. Tagged Him. Yeah, it's like I was like four million dollars in it. The difference is so small if you're talking about three and a half million where I have a proven kicker, this isn't like A. With the Panthers Decision Yeah I'm fine with it, but like at some point. If you think you've got a good kid who can kick like he can. You GotTa, Get mcadoo the panthers did that because they put on the practice squad. Yeah they. Screwed up. Who got hurt for the chiefs? Somebody got hurt from the chiefs. that. Is. Going out of my two thousand seventeen party blocked out. Two, thousand seventeen to move on to. Zero Santa's. Poor Cairo he's. Got Hurt. I think and injury. He did because he was three for three on the year and you wouldn't get rid of a kicker. Whose three for three suffered a groin injury, they had to get Bucker, and then they've rolled with Bucker, because bucker came in, and in two thousand seventeen made ninety point five percent of his field goals thirty eight to forty two thirteen games for the chiefs and made extra point, he was clutch for that to you, and it's been awesome ever since yeah and real quick Cairo. Santa's set groin injury. There's two things you don't WanNa. See Thicker. It is his groin because there's so much involved with your movement when you have a plan for it. You just don't have your groin injured. You don't want to have your hip injured. With those two injuries. There's no guarantee you're, GonNa make it back and be the kitchen. You were a four, but yeah Brinson for came up huge. We saw in the playoffs and the Super Bowl. He hit two huge games against the Vikings. He scored almost all their points on. That was when Patrick Mahomes was out if they don't win that game all the sudden. They're playing the wild card round. The Patriots have that by so you know Bucker came up a couple times for this team, and he also hit a seventy seven yard field goal. During the off season, not during a game. Anything, you want to add on your hands. Justin Tucker or we get? I would just say that he is hands down the greatest, kicker. Volta On Jail Jason Lockenfora Radio Show, and I think from a talent standpoint is the best kicker in NFL history. Now I'm not sure who gets the hall of fame. I think if he does three. Hear me out if he doesn't for three or four more years I, do think he get to the hall of fame, but you just never know you look. There's only two trim kicks in. The hall of fame wants centered more than Anderson more Anderson had to play almost forever. He was NFL's all wing score. Now Viteri Timeline score I think. Will Get in, but vegetarian has these iconic kicks. Everybody knows the Super Bowl game winners. The snow kick against the raiders is probably the greatest feelable in NFL history, because it's such a low percentage, kick and so Justin. Tucker doesn't have those iconic kicks hall of fame. Voters kind of associate with putting someone in. I don't know that they're going to put someone in on talent alone, but right now. He's the most accurate kicker NFL history. He's probably the greatest Talat we just need. The Ravens need to get. Get some some of those iconic kicks in there for him. You know what a sadly is going to hurt the ravens or just in Tucker's fame case, John Horrible now going for it all the time on fourth down just another attempt to just twenty nine field goals last season may twenty eight of course, but that is a career low for him, and just one field goal of fifty plus yards, because instead of trotting Tucker out with these on field goals. They're going for it on fourth and short. And Brenston. When he attempted twenty nine field goals last year, that was so far. That was the first time in five years that he had attempted under thirty. Yeah I. Your first time ever twenty, eighteen, attempted thirty nine, so Harbaugh Ho attitude is definitely going to hurt Tucker Tucker's at two years where he led the NFL and feeble attempts in two thousand thirteen in two thousand fifteen, but again is brench mentioned because harbaugh saying. Hey, we're going. He's not getting those attempts anymore. So and he had a career high and led the NFL career highs in both extra points, a tinted in extra points made and led the bet. Those categories because the ravens are prolific, scoring and finishing off drives, but we're field goal percentage by hall of fame case in Richly Let's take a quick break. When we come back, we'll talk a top ten punter in the NFL. The PGA tour is finally back the first cut on the CBS sports podcast network. has you covered week in and week out with previews picks interviews, news and analysis join Mark Immelman Kyle Porter, Greg Charm and myself Rick Gaiman as we come at us throughout the week with daily fantasy analysis, winning bets, and the hottest takes about Rory Phil and tiger. So what are you waiting for? Come join our group and let's talk golf download and subscribe on Apple podcasts. stitcher anywhere else. PODCAST are found. Paper ends. I met Alfred I'm Chris Hainer together were the Russell buddies a podcast going into the fun parts of professional wrestling? It's a celebration of pro wrestling for fans of all ages, even if you're just getting into it now, new episodes of Russell Buddies rap on Thursdays. So it wasn't enough to breach. Do top kickers. They said why not? Let's be crazy. Let's toss type two hundred Reagan all the positions. We need content here. We are on Saturday July fourth, ranking, top ten. We're not going to go through them individually bridge, because frankly we have to go cricket drunk honors people to it is July fourth. That is true. We're sorry partners. We as why you don't record podcasts on July fourth because you have a finite window to work with. The the bottom five Kevin Huber Michael Dixon's based lower than I thought. Cam Johnson Logan Cook, and Brian Anger, the man famously drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars, in the third round of the two thousand and twelve NFL draft a California kicker. He was taken just a couple of spots of this quarterback. You may have heard of Russel Wilson, and now he kicks for Houston pumps for the Houston Texans. Tell me about that bottom five there yeah, I would say the biggest backlash I got here. WAS THAT SAM? Cook from the Ravens did not make the list. I think you could probably. Probably switch them in there with Huber at number ten, but Ravens fans, the reasons Sam cooked it make because three of the past four years. His Net yardage has been under forty. That is not a great number for an NFL punter and look the Ravens. Also give me up a ton of punt return yards. They'd been one of the five worst teams in I think three the past four years, which is surprising because John Harbaugh, a special teams coach. He's got this loaded feelable unit I'm surprised that he is let the punt team just just surrender all these return yards. But other than that you mention Dixon Dixon had a phenomenal rookie. Year was a pro bore. He lost three yards office, pointing average, and just kind of fell back to Earth. He kinda had that adrenaline as rookie year, he was still a very good partner, just definitely not as good as he was during his rookie and twenty eighteen. Austrailia Buddy Cameron Johnson to Australians on this list, Brenston. Australian punters are huge in college now. Yeah, it was like an Australian pipeline Australian punters for. Big Schools have gone with Australian punters. okay should've gotten outback steakhouse to. Sponsor the the bottom five. Enough held back. Maybe, blooming onion man, you don't eat the blooming onion. Enough I think that's what I'm saying. A whole day's worth of calories in one blooming onion, so if you're like really hungry, you hit the blooming onion. Do so in less than ideal news by computers, completely I and up on me. And not just not moving. So why don't you tell me about your top five all right? Let's go with the top five here. Five Brett Kern of the Tennessee titans current had a huge year. He was a big reason why the titans were so good that often henry really. Not, right Tannehill, we'll throw in Ryan Tannehill, but like the offense isn't the chiefs offense. They don't score on every drive. And so when you're not sworn every drive, your partner becomes a weapon and Brett. Kern placed thirty seven punts inside his opponent's twenty yard line. Only to punters had more than thirty five. He was one of them, and if you're a partner, that is the gold standard. If you can pin someone inside their twenty because that's GonNa touch back. That's literally the best thing you can do because it makes your opponents field long to score points. So Kern probably titans fans were not happy. He was another one that probably could have been ranked higher. If I did this over I might have put them at three or two, but he's definitely easily a top five punter in the NFL number four Andy we the cardinals. Cardinals have been for the past few years any. We get so much action. Acquired from the panthers in a trade. Do they trade him? Am I wrong? He's been around forever. So I knew the Browns, and then the panthers gay Dave Gettleman gave the Browns a fourth round pick for ely well. He's been in the NFL since two thousand four, so it's like he's the one guy can't his career. She's about the forty niners, the Browns, the panthers and the cardinals, so he has been getting some serious action. Didn't. Pick this insane well. That's why you do it. He's never four four best partner. Would you give a fourth round? Pick the fourth partner. Would well Princeton I would give up a fourth round pick for the fourth best being the fourth best at your position in the entire NFL. He's thirty seven years old, and he's still banging out Fonsi average forty seven point eight yards per punt, which was the second highest number in the NFL, another guy who's on this list because he gets a ton of action and comes through as trust way of the Redskins, I think my favorite reaction was twitter. On twitter, somebody's like stress way real name, or are you just like four NAS to see if. We can actually name Punters Brinson game here, trust wiser real. Person Israel person is definitely a real person. He averaged forty nine point six yards per punt last year that was the ninth highest single season total in NFL history, and also talked about inside the twenty. Being important for the other thing you want is high net yardage yards per punt doesn't mean anything. If you don't have a good net yardage, because maybe you're team's going off. Return me route kicking your coverage. tress way forty four point one net yards per punt, which ranked third in the NFL number. Two on the list Brinson boy Johnny Hacker. Hacker is the only person on this list. Who I didn't just considering putting I consider that this guy's weapon yeah, the rams regularly use him four fake punts. The guys completed more passes than bell career than tastes them hill. So Johnny Hecker absolutely is not just a great partner. He's four his career. He's averaged forty yards per punt, which is the second highest career average in NFL history he was in the NFL in yards last year, so he's had a solid career, and obviously he is a weapon number. One on this list Thomas Morstead of the saints who now follows Brinson on twitter. That's right, and you Thomas Shout out the Thomas Morstead, so he, you ranked him first overall on the list. Then he followed you on twitter and I went out and follow immediately followed me back. I like that idea that you can follow somebody and they get a notification that says you followed. I would like to point out that. Moore said wasn't already following me and I gave him some sort of special treatment because he was. This is not the case. This was looking at the numbers and Morstead came out as the best he walked. He put nearly fifty percent of his punts inside opponents twenty yard line. We decided how we talked about how important that is. He forced twenty-one fair catches. So that's good because you're coverage team is taking out of the equation and now fair catches are good if you have a high net average, because if you have sixty fair catch, but you're not averaging only thirty five yards. That's not good. You're just give me short. Concerned can't return it. More set a bunch of fair catches, but he had an average of forty three point one, which ranked fifth overall in the NFL last year. He has had a top ten net punting average in. The past nine years and he's ranked in the top five. In seven of the past nine years, so his net punting average has been top five and seven of the past nine years including last year. Any is the third highest yards per punt. In NFL, history average in that is forty six point nights more said has been crushing it. He does kick in doors, but that's not the same as field goal. Kickers have a lot more to deal with punters. It's the weather is a factor, but unless it's major unless it was forty hour winds, there's not a huge difference, and that really speaks to two. The saints like I think we sleep on I mean obviously. Special Teams SORTA comes in third place when you're talking about often. Stevens especial shoots Bot. It's pretty clear. The saints have a very well rounded roster, Twi Twi the saints have gone thirteen and three the last two years I. It's not just offense. It's not just drew brees. Athlete. Walk for asked me without had the best kicker. Sir Tandem, because he thought talker and cook should be number one, but I told them I. thought that will. What's in Thomas morstead would be number one and the Tucker and cook probably number two, but again you're talking about two of the best teams they understand to coaches who understand how important special teams are, and if you have one of the best ponders in one of the best kickers that puts you ahead of the game because there's going to be one or two games. Games per season that come down to a field goal, there's going to be how to two games per season that come down to feel position, and if you have a kicker, who can make that feel or who can flip the field all the sudden. You're ahead of the game and the difference between the number one seed in the number. Two seed is one game. Maybe that game is something that your partner or Ticker Windsor you and now that there's only one home field advantage once he gets that each conference. You know kickers. Maybe a lot more important in two thousand, twenty, a lot of great stuff breach hope everybody has a happy and safe and non. Jason Pierre Paul July Fourth, and if you're over twenty one. I'm already. Drinker, Hammer right now. I mean I wasted soon as I. Get off with Brinson I have to drink just like cope with talking to Brinson for an hour. So this is going to be a crazy fourth of July for me. Involved a very bad during. His five am that people are listening to this right now so good for you, is it? It. Could be if if they're up that early. Getting up that early. People up onto I fourth I don't know some people. It's like you wake up early for Christmas. It's America's birthday open. America's presence Yup early.

"Hey there podcast pals I'm John Stolnis the host of the Phillies pod hidden season. One of the shows that make up the good fight podcast family from espy nation. Look the baseball season is one hundred and sixty two games long and there's no way you can watch all those games. So make sure to check out my podcast twice a week for all the fills goodness. You could ever want and make sure to check out our other podcasts including the award winning dirty inning with Justin clue and Trevor strunk and continued success with Justin and Laze rozier sprout apple podcasts or your favorite. PODCAST APP. Just Bush. Does this strange Welcome to from the bleachers on your host as always shameless clancy coming to you from the wonderful win agree nation radio podcast network. Now, I am back to you all for the second time this week he thought you were getting one podcast you're getting to earlier talked about how nervous about the eagles offense line specifically about how they're going to match up against Ryan Kerrigan and share shown this weekend down in Maryland. I guess you could say landover, Maryland, that's not Washington there. They do not play in Washington even there were there called that all the Washington football TV. So get into this week getting amped up for Sunday I. Am in total football mode have been since the end of last week. Quick plugging a couple of things we are going to be on twitch this year during Eagles Games will be live streaming. My reactions to the Games gives us a follow on our twitter channel at BGN underscore radio digitally I. Want to quickly plug my Patriot newsletter if my podcast if you love my news, if you love my twitter, want you subscribe to my newsletter? Patriot. Dot, com backslash underscore clancy a lot. Of Great content on there for unbelievable value but to get US ready for the weekend obviously in my, you know my mid week podcast typical had you every week kind of talking about my worries about the Eagles when I'm looking forward to and those things but I didn't do a special one because we're getting ready for week while we're getting ready for the first year, we're getting ready for the first game of the Super Bowl run. I had to do an extra pop and I wanNA talk a little bit about pre game rituals. Obviously. I've taught about this. You know almost every podcast I'm a prolific tailgater. I'm an eagles season ticket holder my pre game rituals centered around going to the jets at seven o'clock in the morning. When I wake up walking into the Lincoln that magical feeling as you're setting in a sea of your fellow eagles fans swarmed in midnight and Kelly Green and you hear that e. Drug out as perfectly in as long as possible and the I e in the Julius Chan. You know exactly what I'm saying I've missed that in that's my pre game ritual obviously half the games I'm watching from home and you know usually means with my dad hang out with Ashley my boy Mike Stuff like that but it's just not the same social distancing there's core. There's no fans in the stadium I can't wrap my head around that. They're going to be eight games at Lincoln financial field. This year not only will I not be able to go to any of them? will be it's just it's insane and I think that was the hold for me for you surely hitting football shameless mood and getting. So into the season as I am because it just seems unfeasible that there'd be without fans without there could be a home eagles game without me there the pre game rituals, the change maybe yourself who always watches the game from home in your. Routine doesn't change but I'd like to hear all of you who listen to this tweet me at underscore clancy I wanna know what you guys gals identify yourself I want to know what your pre game rituals are because I'm I'm trying to start a new one this year because I want to be home all sixteen games this year hopefully home all nineteen games all nineteen wins. New thing this year. So either Friday or Saturday to go out to acne this is what I'm planning on doing right now, going to buy really cheap bottle of Champagne Andrei, people were drinking parties in college. You think I know anything about champagne now. By some champagne, some orange juice grapefruit juice gotta go for both of them just don't get don't get just aren shoes get a little splash orange a little splash of great food for feeling adventurous those cranberry in there instead of one of those two. Splash of all three but get mostly champagne. Obviously. Gear. Soft going with that and this week I'm attending a cup for the first time. Now I WANNA talk about cooking real quick formerly as a single white guy I never never ever ever I lived at home than I eventually moved in with my girlfriend actually about two years ago, cooking a lot more and for the first time ever armament try to cook scrapple and that sounds like a massive undertaking, I'm sure it. Really isn't, but he's never done that I don't know how to cook anything just dumb idiot? Guy but I will I bought some scrapple this week I don't know what the brand was said Philadelphia on it. It wasn't generic like Dietz and Watson Hatfield Brandon whatever is said Philadelphia on so I immediately grabbed that great branding on their part. So wake up in the morning for myself Mimosa, cut up some scrap. Like thin slices and cook it really really crispy. I. Like my scrabble crispy. Sometimes, you might order scrap like she's from somewhere in the scrabble's a little soft. That's not me I got really into scrabble. Heads from Brian, always comes to our telephones always brings a grown and cooks and he makes his scrap on the morning low plateau Woodson. Sausage and everything it's unbelievable gets me high for the game I want to channel that feeling that's part of my traditional pre game ritual I to bring some home and thin get nice and crispy GonNa get some parole. She's hopefully sharp privilege. I don't know what the store is going to have, but preferably prevalence for Americans being that's fine him. But throws in privilege she's in go buy some eggs making Nice Fried Egg. May Be over easy egg I don't really know how to cook on Cook my eggs in they're going to be either of those things on not sure which way they're in come out but whatever way it comes out I'm eaten at. My EG Chidi scrapple pick up some whole wheat everything bagels from red vaguely on Shafie that couple locations throughout the city like bagels. Some of the best bagels out there pick up a couple of BAGELS for myself. Bring that home son Cogan that put it on the whole wheat everything Bagel. That's nice. Toasted in the Toaster Oven throw some Sarah share on their some bread and butter pickles on to go to town. While I'm probably going to play in the background either have a tailgate playlists I. Go Miss Amy Ball listen to an album obviously found talk about rock music, email, music, punk, rock all the time. Maybe celebration rock by Japan's Juries or get wet by Andrew. W K but I think. Throw my classic. Tailgate plays the first one I like to play at every tailgate is take it easy by the eagles understandably. There called the eagles to. Phenomenal Song Phenomena Saunder, just sit back relax have an iced drink eat some scrapple to I'm so. I'm so excited. I. Wish it was Sunday. If you follow the bleeding relation instagram if if you aren't I don't know what you're doing. If you're not follow me on Instagram I don't know what you're doing but everyday I'm running down to. Lincoln Financial Field at the Sports Complex personal instagram taking a picture of the state insane five days away and running back home, and then I love I love closest date on psycho running across the entire city here. I want people to know about Michelle Phyllida and that four days tonight at four days three days and then. On the instagram at bleeding green instant if you're on their follow me on Instagram at shameless underscored clancy doing these posts were today post picture jake. Elliott getting carried off the field after that magical sixty one yard field goal against the giants in week three, two, thousand, seventeen. Said four days of the Game Jake number four and doing stuff like that. The rest of the week just to give you. So amp for I. don't even know where I was. Yeah. I'm so excited. I'm thinking about the music and listen to anything Benham when eating in that kind of brings that tailgate atmosphere that charge so much to my home watching the game alone ashes at a bridal shower just me in the twitch stream end. Excited I got that food going I actually bought. Sunday ticket this year, it never made sense for me to buy Sunday ticket in the past as someone who spends half the Games at the stadium at the Lincoln then come back late. You miss some of the four o'clock game I'll point is we watch games at once all day. So, if the Eagles plan one o'clock already have my schedule of what I'm thinking look through I. Think I'm GonNa do four Sunday ticket. This week one o'clock eagles plight. So that'll be the game on the main TV on Fox Eagles Washington football. Team. The other two other TV, at my second TV in their get Sunday ticket through Roku have little cheap broke like forty bucks on Amazon been using dual tv all throughout the NHL NBA Austin watching the phillies games you know seamless purchase something I am so happy I did have that brought the bedroom TV. Deliverance Kurt. So one o'clock Eagles da we're watching the eagles most important thing means ev I'm sure I'll be only really paying attention to their TV during commercials, but I need to have something on there at the same time just at at my own anal necessities other Games WanNa watch another TV is either Minnesota in Green Bay were Atlanta and Seattle. Seattle is poised for another great year. Russell. Wilson is my pick for MVP this year and you would know that if grabbed my Patriot newsletter. So then four o'clock the big gain, the big game, the big game I can't wait for Tom Brady's I gained not as a Patriot Tampa Bay New Orleans I. Hope they get absolutely smoked I can't wait for them to disappoint the half that two thousand Eleven Eagles Dream Team vibe to them on fading them on every bet I bet them to not make the playoffs And the other game while we watched darn is four o'clock aims at one o'clock TV. The other TV on throw on Arizona's San Fran. Kind of cliff Kingsbury is maybe trying to be the next Kyle Shanahan and column better quarterback than Jimmy. Garoppolo. Thing we'd be in for night showdown NFC West don't maybe the best division in the NFC this year I don't think the rams are GonNa make the playoffs I think they'll finish in fourth sean mcvay stops but I think they will get at least two teams playoffs with Seattle in San Francisco I think Arizona will possibly contend for that seven spot. So Awesome Games right off the BAT. And then at night, forget this at night just one TV able have a basketball game on TV or something but Dallas cowboys at the Los Angeles Rams hammering the rams plus one point five home dog's gotTa Love Home Dogs except Washington this week as they are a six and a half point underdogs against our beloved. But GonNa have that phenomenal scrapple Bagel Sandwich in the morning have Lassen elicit born to run by Bruce Springs twelve, fifty five. You know probably cry a little bit probably just like go outside on my deck deck it's when call my fire escape top step just big scream weapon style and get ready for this emotional mental undertaking that is Philadelphia Eagles football on I can't believe we are just hours in days in hours away from the thing we truly truly love most in this world besides are no family and significant others.

Building off that week one excitement today recording this on Wednesday night Jalen regular practice today. was in drills everything in Pats, and he's been doing these tweets this week they have since been deleted. So that's how you know he's onto something and that he's probably going to play because he tweeted that smirk Emoji, you know exactly what I'm talking about and the soon Emoji with the our with it and you know the team is I hey man you can tweet that he'd we're gonNA freak out if he don't play. Which means he's probably playing. He's feeling good I don't WanNa. Rush back. Obviously, his health is paramount to the eagles successes are do not want him to rush back but if he is healthy and able to go in week one if he's playing soon if he's got that smirk on his face when he's taken the field for his first pro snap. Baby, we need the same last year Ri- wanted the first play of the season to be this play action or shotgun bomb to Sean I want that with Jalen regular this year I want Jalen to be the new figure that terrorizes the Washington football team and their fan base. I want to put the NFC East on notice that we have the new great speed Fred and the Division that will be torching and turning your quarterback into burn holy everything bagels for the next seven to ten years. That's what I want. Regular place. Thing. Was I bought a I think talked about some. TCU Jalen Reiger Jersey right after they drafted him and I. I made a bet with myself. Hey, not really bad but said to myself you know Jan regulars first name I gotTa wear that Jersey now assumed he wasn't going to play on Sunday in week one. So I to be later in the year that I wear that Jersey for the first time. So I already had like an outfit my head picked out for Sunday and you guys are probably superstitious out there with what's closure where eagles if you're soubra on crazy in just mentally unraveling about the eagles like I do sorry. Had My Jersey and everything in mind for Sunday now that I'm GonNa have to change it for Jalen? Regular Throw me through some gymnastics right now getting rare very anxious, just thinking about but just want Jalen regular go out there if he plays. Oh man he scored a touchdown, his first NFL game I want him to be. Now they're not the most similar tackle players, but I want him to be like that two thousand eight Sean Jackson Rookie Sean Jackson. Where he just cut the League on notice gave that gave the eagles that threat of verticality they've been sorely missing at the eagles need so badly and Sean healthy. Hey, that's a healthy to sean game. You have to maximize the show on the fuel decking is you know not only not playing a full season he might not play ten eleven, twelve games. Honestly. If I was handling the Schon when it comes to his management with the eagles or his health, his playing time I'm serious I would only play him in Division Games in playoff games. That's all I would play him in specially to douse games the two giants games onto Washington Games those six games if he's just healthy for those games the. Five and one of those games in the division rescuer games get healthy stay safe. Put himself in. A bubble, the bubble bully on Seinfeld because if you're planning the Division Games are going to go five one and they're gonNA make the playoffs and in Save Them for the playoffs I think that's with the Sean Jackson but he will be playing this week you have to utilize. He is playing against his old team a team. He scored two touchdowns against in week one last year in Philadelphia that was a magical day. For me where I thought, that was the untapped potential of Carson wentz right there finally having transcended threat may be the best deep threat in NFL history out there and it's such a shame that the Sean season didn't work out the way we all dreamed and hoped it would. But obviously, that's that comes with the territory when dealing with player who has an injury history injury prone player like the Sean Jackson, but if You have if those two guys on that field the same time you have to fastest receivers, Eagles of had forever out through the same time you've run to go twelve personnel with those two guys out wide dowse Gutter Zakar it's in the middle of the field and mile standards with Carson wentz right there in the shotgun. Who's being US baby because it aimed at the Washington football team is anyone a little worried for something I'm not word and I'm sure I could eat crow about this but I'm feeling a big win a statement when no slow starts no oh, my God they're down thirteen to ten halftime they come back in you know fall backwards ensue covering in the fourth quarter now they're gonNA win this outright they're gonNa be good. They're gonNa be good the whole darn game. I want this to be like. In, twenty seventeen that either broncos game were went through so many touchdowns they have to take him out early, put the backup in what I'm hoping for this game as. We see the new Eagles Human Victory Cigar Jalen hurts I want jalen hurts to get his first NFL action this weekend, not because of an injury to Carson Wentz or nate subtlety because the eagles ordering so much very of hurts some NFL action to get under his maybe he runs for a touchdown increase that I wanNA put a crooked number up on Washington The Washington football team. You really decided on that name you should have changed. Your name decades and decades ago. But at the same time for all these decades in years, you could have planned to have a new name. You chose that you deserve lose you deserve to lose by a lot. I'm hoping for a lopsided landslide victory from our beloved Philadelphia's Ron. Rivera does bring some stability to that organization. Something they lacked to say the least during the entirety of the Janus Snyder error in Washington, but at the same time. Washington had the twenty seventh. Ranked twenty seven past Defense De Vito? A last year per football outsiders they're starting Ronald Darby on the outside geometric jalen regular Ronald Darby. That's over. That's why I wanna see I wanna see either the Sean regenerator go Darby. Burnham deep seven nothing I drive. Washington gets the ball. dwayne housing gets head of the throws Darius slay pick six. You know your five plays into the game, the Eagles route fourteen, maybe fifteen nothing we go for. The second touchdown stubbed revenue knows in it get back into twenty seventeen vibes that's looking for want to see the Eagles win by double digits out Doug Oh to for the first time that I want Jen Rigor to scored touch on his first NFL game, and maybe maybe we see the Human Victory Cigar Jalen hurts I'm predicting a big eagles. Win We needed. A one Jalen, this four one Jalen hurts to get on the field I. Want this win I want a super bowl run. I'm ready for Sunday and I hope you are after Miss. That's it for me.

Started From The Bottom

"Partly interruption but I'm Mike Wilbon his national poetry at workday. Tony here at work. I've got some poetry. I'm Tony Kornheiser. There we go. Roses red violets are blue. You picked Clemson good job by youth. I don't mind picking the team on twenty nine and now want to win win it wrong. We're GONNA get to the game now now very satisfying game two very very good thing. Yes no doubt about it. The Dow Arman says in that that game there were great berry all over this like twenty guys on a field. We're going to play on Sunday. Welcome to PTI boys and girls in today's episode. Joe Borough Looks Great. LSU Goes Down in history baseball once. It's teams zipping but we begin today with LSU coming back from seventeen seven down and outscoring Clemson Simpson thirty five to eight the rest of the way Lsu beatdown Clemson this year the way Clemson beatdown Alabama last year. We'll find your choice for the best college quarterback of all time. Trevor Lawrence did not complete fifty percent of his path at night. Meanwhile Joe Borough threw for four sixty three and five touchdowns you definitely had Clemson Hamson. How did the game play out differently than you thought easily? LSU's better that's how played out. That's how it played out. And Joe Borough I I mean he was as great as you could ask a college quarterback any era any time in place to be and he was better than Trevor Lawrence. who had a bad night? I don't know that I want to pronounce it any more than a bad night for Trevor Lawrence. Who already is wearing a college football champion because he got so he burrowed and have any mourn him right now but the Wasn't good last night and Lsu. Tony they were calm and poise when they could have been a little rattled at seventeen. Seventeen seven down and they got themselves together. An adjusted to things and borough lead the way and that it was thoroughly impressed. So I'm going to so I'm watching this game and at the beginning beginning of the game borough is terrible now. They're backed up inside their ten. A couple of time with them down inside funds and stuff like that but he at one point is I think four of nine and I'm waiting for David pollock called the best. Accuracy has ever seen in a quarterback and then you began to see that and after that point from that point on he started complaining about seventy percent. Twenty seven forty and he was and he was all over the field and I thought okay. That's that's what I wanted to see on the other side Trevor Lawrence. Who and you're right? He won a championship last year. He doesn't have anything to prove. He won a championship being chip. But he overthrew third every line. Different Pass sailed them. There's a study visa to jacked up indicates adrenaline rush of adrenaline. Finally Yeah because he's overthrowing that is the worst performance by a power five conference quarterback in any game in the last two years and he's a lot better than that but as I said earlier to media are very satisfying game these wonderful teams and I thought the best team won I thought Lsu had one of the great years of all told you. Oh Yeah and you know what I still get the feeling the clintons going to be back. Oh sure like next year. Sure they got out of course. Of course the zero in last ice hero-town talk next time. We see Joe Borough play we all presume it's going to be in Cincinnati bengals uniform. The bengals need a quarterback and need a franchise changer and borough is from Ohio and apparently anxious to take on that seemingly impossible situation so given everything we know about the club and the player. Are you anxious to see borough play for the Bengal. I'm going to get to this question. I just WANNA give his bona fides for a second. This year he threw sixty touchdown payrolls feels he had six picks. That's plus fifty four. That's unbelievable look at the playoff games. I'm GonNa Count Georgia's a playoff game so you got three Games Games against Georgia Oklahoma and Clemson. Who finished the year number four number seven and number two and he goes sixteen? and Oh in. Oh Sixteen touchdowns no picks picks so. I think he's ready for the two that I want to see him in Cincinnati because the Ohio connection okay. Here's what scares me. And I'm I'm sure scares you. I don't want what happened to David Car in Houston to happen to him. What happened to Tim? couching Cleveland happening and what happened a long time ago to Archie Manning in new. You're happening in which is no offense of lime crash boom on your back three times. I got some experience with this but this is a little more extreme in nineteen eighteen eighty four or five. I covered boomer size. We've been friends for a long long time boomer Maryland drafted by the the Cincinnati bengals and he went on to have a great career. Lead them to the Super Bowl right. That's an almost wasn't that the yes that's right and yet and yet. I know that this was nearly impossible. Task Injury Kenny Anderson and lead them there. I don't know tell you as earlier and so you had you got these as quarterbacks these these great college not as great as Joe Borough they got out and they led the Bengals to the Super Bowl and yet I think it is more born possible now that it was even for boomer. I think the bengals are the place that only Ohio kid would want to worry. That Zack Taylor and his staff. Don't know what the hell title is and that this kid. I don't how Great College quarterback Hyun need assistance at the professional level on Sunday. GotTa go spend money on offensive loyal. May I hope so. They gotta look. Andrew look got crushed the first four or five years but they wasting time. They knew what they were doing. They won. They were deep in the playoffs. A lot the Indianapolis Colts could bengals. The WELLA gives who was coaching advanced. Because he's got all those times and he never wanNA WANNA give. I hope Joe Burrow because he's from Tigers Tiger's opie changes name to be U. R. E. A. and hope he's great. Do I have fears that. You have swears just fears game last night. Lsu Coach and order on said quote this came to be mentioned aluminum. Greatest College is pretty pretty good to decide unquote sounded like Bernie Sanders. Well I think he's talking to you are they. Yeah I mean a team. They beat the the the top four teams. In the preseason check check check check it would be their final. AP poll top five top five and top ten. So what what is it. There's nothing you could ask of the Lsu Tigers that they didn't give you the coach of the year Heisman Trophy Z.. Winner didn't they have. They have not the Lombardi they had. The BELINDA cough winter. They got it all right. So what do what do you this is interesting. I mean I told you yesterday that are famous and James Carville was saying if they win this game winning convincingly. They're the best of all time convincing. What have what have we seen in our lives? That are the best of all time I mean. I thought what there are teams out there that I always associated with. Ucla and USC when when the California had great football teams they're a great teams in the Mid West. They're a great teams all over the place. I'm going to isolate this individually. And by the way I will say this one thing because you're always saying that the SEC doesn't play anybody he played in Ono Lsu Lsu is. There's a Saturday where they all play. CHUMPS SAMFORD but this is not disputable they do. This team played everybody. They beat everybody so the greatest college football player Claire Ever saw. And I'm going to apologize upfront because I can't be responsible for anything else. That happened in his life. Okay after college but it's Okay Simpson's Gross College football player of us. Okay okay. Greatest quarterback season I ever saw is either going to be cam. Newton win a championship. What Tim Tebow winning a championship promising that he was going to win a chance to see Roger Staubach back? You can discount that I remember. Roger Back wasn't that I was still young at that. Point and Roger Staubach was great choper who had a season with them and Lsu as you had a season with any of these teams Tony Teams. They beat them in a category. Perhaps by them so I don't care about fifteen. The teams play fifteen. Jim Brown played ten. Right it'd be like ten ten games. They averaged forty eight and a half points. They just put forty forty two on the number one D fifty a team. That was the defending national champion. Fifty if they're not by themselves selves isn't one of those Notre Dame team something that we should be thinking. I'm sure I hear all these all these players who are under forty x players under fifty and they all say is the greatest. I'm I'm not trusting you but I'm not sure what you know about football. You have no sense of history most of you and so we got some sense of his own and historically great team. It doesn't mean that Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time. But when you have that discussion he has to be in the discussion. Yes unless you team is at the top of the discussion I do. Please don't go saying they're the only ones on the game has changed as more games as opposed season. There are things that they'll silicate that. LSU answered every Bell Great. We have to follow up on baseball's major news from yesterday baseball. Getting in the way now okay. I'm angry about this baseball. Because they're getting in the way of a great college football football night that Astros. Gm Jeff Liu now and manager Aj. Hinch were suspended by baseball then fired by the Astros for for their roles in this sign stealing scandal that keeps getting in the way today there are various people within the industry. The think the club and the two men were not. I penalized harshly enough. The five mil was assault fine. The draft picks won't be all that. Hi everybody else. In the organization include the players skated. That's true so while we wait for the other foot to come crashing down and Alex Cora how are you feeling about the punishment handed the astro. Okay this is is not about draft picks. It's not about fines. It's about baseball publicly coming out and saying this team. That was a world champion winner and got it was the toast of the town. They cheated and they publicly talk out the general manager and they took out the field manager. And I don't want to hear whining from other people because I don't know how many other teams last she needed as well. This is an idea how reports although this nothing's seven other other teams are involved. Okay this this is enough for me and I want to say one of the they wanna say about baseball when baseball says to its teams. We're going to speak with one voice and we don't want you to criticize is anything that happened. Let me just say this okay. This country is based on a first amendment. It's not some local neighborhood Home Association. We have a policy like this and the second part is baseball tried to bury this. They released this on the day of the National College Football Champions of Blige to release it. WHOA parallels in the world this is how important is story is it is? It's eight one in the New York Times. It's a one in Washington Post because this is baseball. This is you still. The heartbeat is awards. If baseball nothing says cheating like baseball. Four one hundred forty. Here's that's why nothing said. She Spit Ball and pies over and put a limit on how you can acquire this thing. Artificial initial owning not is is a big deal to me is stealing. You've learned how to steal signs. You were playing little league and I did too I. I didn't have had to have a computer lily. I have two camera setup and little you wish you did you do. All the reads my teleprompter two one out. We'll take a break but coming up. How Shanahan has done a great job as head coach in the niners but his mammoth lube and better and this Derrick Henry by way better at what he does the Providence? Patrick Mahomes at what he fixed. The prompter is next base fault. She a toss up. The world's most advanced has to reasoning. Let's get the first one from the producer over the loudspeaker. Toss up more impressive coaching job at the floor. Or Kyle Shanahan. The guy's voice doing toss up today. Sounds like ezio sick. I let me point out that leflore. An Shanahan were assistance. That the redskins you loved one of them will get to the Super Bowl last year. A former system the redskins. Sean McVeigh got to the Super Bowl. Meanwhile Jay grew on a beach somewhere. Electing Okay I'll make this very simple. LEFLORE has Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers covers resolved multitude of sins. Call Shanahan don't have anybody like that so I'm going to say that Kyle Shanahan has done a better job. I wanted to build a case for the floor. I I really wanted to go to see. He's got the Guy I'm taking to San Francisco San Francisco right on Sunday so we can't it can't be him because he's got got a first ballot hall of Famer and if you don't call the play correctly the entire season at some point Aaron Rodgers he could do it off the communications all his own. Damn place he probably be better off. You guys got George kiddle. But he doesn't. Have anybody like Erin Rug and and you know what they might be like that. But they're not Aaron Rodgers. Now Nets Tossup veteran in his job. Derrick Henry Patrick Mahomes so when I heard this question earlier I said that I would say you might take the one you want to take the derrick. Derrick Henry is the best runner in football. He runs pasture. And that doesn't work. He runs over you all right. But Derrick Henry don't have the ball in his hands all torturer. Patrick Mahomes has the ball hands all the time. And what he did is like Joe Borough last night got twenty one in the second quarter. Patrick Mahomes got twenty eight in the second quarter. He's the best so I'll take homes. Derrick Henry has equality that we haven't seen you and I grew up with this but then disappeared from pro author ball. People are physically afraid. Oh yeah they don't WanNA tackles strikes fear that's right and opponents. I know the Patrick Mahomes has all the talent in the world. He may be the best out there. But I don't think you walk out there thinking my God. I embarrassed and physically damaged which I can from Derrick Henry running over me and leaving footprints. If I were a corner I would want average size. cornerback five five ten and a half on ninety. You want him next. Toss up more of a lock for the finals. The bucks or the Lakers fight so we bring this up because they have the to the records they have the two best records basketball. The bucks the number one record the Lakers have the number two record number three surprising to a lot of people. `specially Joel Embiid is the Celtics number three. But he came back here right but in terms of this question. I want the Lakers to win. I Want The resurrection of Lebron James. I don't know what yeah. I don't know that they can beat the team. That dresses in the locker room across the hall. They're all into against the clippers right now. The West is still harder. East is still easier. Sure so to answer this question. My answer is the bucks I think the bucks to and it's because Philadelphia's not what we thought they would be not yet. The Celtics are close close to it and I think the Celtics May WanNa make a deal. You know whether it's for cat or somebody else. They need something in the middle innings. Something inside I'm sorry. Kat Karl Anthony Thank you for him okay. So they need something but in the East it looks like Milwaukee. Toronto doesn't have enough. Why yet they don't have? What do we think Philly can be? Resurrected it in one season in need it. Milwaukee is the best team in the Miami too early mill. I'm just asking last one. Toss up more likely to get hired again. Aj hinch or Jeffrey Luna is not even close. Geoffrey Woo now is seen as the villainous when myspace Jeffrey Lou now is the tyrant of analytics. Jeffrey Lou now had to fire the guy who was his sister because that guy embarrassed and was boisterous towards female reporters in that clubhouse. I don't know if Jeffrey Luna was ever getting a job again maybe he will. Aj hinch is getting a job today. They he's eligible and get a job. Aj Hinch is Mike McCarthy. We didn't hear a word from Mike McCarthy all year then boom the cowboys higher Mike McCarthy Eighty. Aj hinch will get a job defer at at a good place today he's else what higher. Aj hinch tonight. As a matter of fact if I had let's say Major League Baseball said you can't hire him because he's suspended. I was slipped him some hush money and just keep him on retainer until he could come back maybe higher miss something else because he's not suspended as is I don't know a third base. He went to two members of the series and one of them. Baseball says they didn't cheat at all. got here way too many strikes against him. That's that's what I'd be hired immediately. That's it let's take one last break still to come Antonio Gates career. He's eighty years old. Brad had Marseille boy. Forgot something out that you see that. Exactly hit the PUCK. No he got something. That's something sort of necessarily thinking Antonio Gates had retired a year ago on the twenty first birthday the Andrea Swift is the Georgia running back was raided by Mel Kiper. Is the number one running back in the draft. Georgia already has niche up Sony. Michelle and Todd Gurley the NFL at high levels so Georgia looks like the school you go to to learn how to be an NFL running them and the greatest Georgia running back. All Force Force was Herschel Walker last night's championship game and he looked rates. You know he was standing on that stage with Jim Brown and Earl Campbell Barry Sanders and Roger and he did look. He's only after Jim Brown right. Jim Brown Husham. Don't ask me to come on at the anniversary case keenum Among the findings on this day two years ago keenum connected with digs on a sixty one yard touchdown as the final seconds ticked off for a shocking Vikings playoff win over the saints that plays known as the Minneapolis miracle leaving aside for the moment that the worst defensive play in history by safety created the so-called Miracle. The Vikings appear to be some distance away from getting back to the NFC championship. They managed seven first downs against the forty niners. Couldn't stop anybody running all the like that. More often than not vikings in contention but not necessarily serious contention happy trails to a shoot out for Brad. Marchand Bruins the Boston forward. Cereal face face sliver needed to score to extend the shootout with the flyers last night but as he was starting attempt we somehow overskated. The puck. Referees ruled because Marshon than ever ever so slightly nudged the plug that counted as a shot and the game was over Bruins lose. Hashtag said. We'll have you ever seen anything like that. Yeah on the Iot not on places in there and you just nudged the ball off the tee and you gotta try to pick it up as if you don't want anybody to notice and put it back on the I. Have you ever played Marian no so when you play Mary. And if you're a righty down the left side about one hundred and fifty people are eating lunch. It's terrifying. I was twelve over at the end of three holes. I was so oh terrified and by the way I've written the number of somebody who should have been in that group of all running out of show go to the big VEGETA- Antonio entirely I will remember his career. Tony is being like killing. Winslow's Gaza Hall of Famers All Time Greats like Fountain rivers but they didn't get to the Super Bowl which NHL H. O.. All Star competition will beat. You're shooting pucks from the stands over fans and it targets on ICE. I don't like this training. This is a little too terrifying to me. I don't think talks should be should have any chance of falling into stands where they can hurt somebody with somebody will have nets the bad idea. Sidney crosby will return to the penguins tonight after missing in two months within the abdominal injury. Big Expectations for other penguins are thirty eastern. You would think he might be able to put them over to talk over. Your Washington capitals. Perhaps know Chad Johnson. OCHO CINCO is trying out the kicker. XFL You likes his chances. We kicked a pat debates with no extra points in asleep so he's got a kick field goals so I don't they might put them on a roster but I don't like his chances to pick those last one Arizona State extended Edwards contract to twenty twenty four deserve. Yeah his fifteen eleven record of the two seasons his impact is greater than that and yes that changed this non. Stop trying to better the next time. I'm Tony Kornheiser. The thirty two in college. I'm Mike well by same time tomorrow. knuckleheads you can get the P._T._i.. On the E._S._p._N.. APP or Apple Sleep.

The MMQB Podcast with Peter King

Justin Tucker (Baltimore Ravens) and Gary Myers (author of "How 'Bout Them Cowboys?")

"Welcome to the Peter King podcasts where I try to educate you about the National Football League and hopefully a few other things along the way. This week leading place kicker in NFL history, Justin Tucker of the Baltimore Ravens. The only kicker ever to make ninety percent of his field goal attempts for career joins me and I'll have Gary Myers the long time and very well respected sports writer who's just written a book, how about them Cowboys, which has some really good stories about America's team. But I, I wanna talk about drew Brees I think everybody is well aware that drew Brees has just set on Monday night of this week the all time record for passing yards in a career in one game, he vaulted from third to first passing Brett farve, and Peyton Manning along the way and now holds the record for most passing yards ever. And what's interesting is that I think that there's a good chance that this record could stand for awhile. I don't know how long, but one of the issues about all these records that are being set now is that eventually they're all going to be broken because of the way the passing game is played. But I do think there's a good chance that drew Brees ends up having more passing yards in his career than Tom Brady, and if not Brady look at the landscape of current players, I don't think it's. Very likely that any veteran play right now, except maybe Matthew Stafford a will advocate chance to get that high into the realm over seventy thousand passing yards. And who knows the way Brees is going. He may end up with over eighty thousand passing yards, but I wanted to take a moment and just talk about a story that about Brees that I recall. And that is sort of seared in my mind when I was working for Sports Illustrated back in two thousand ten, I found out that breeze had this. He called it honestly, a secret society. He found ten businessmen in New Orleans. Now, remember in two thousand ten, they were still only five years clear. Actually, when I wrote this about four and a half years, clear of Hurricane Katrina, and there were still so many things. Wrong with this city. So many things in this city that needed to be fixed and breeze and in in his mind, he needed to do something about this as well as in whatever he might do. Personally, he knew he couldn't do everything personally. Even though he was involved in a lot of things. And so he founded this society of of ten businessmen who would give twenty five thousand dollars a year, and they would sit there and decide, okay, how are we gonna parcel out this money? It's just a little amount of money breeze also gave some money into the pot as well. And how're we going to what little projects are we going to do to try to get New Orleans back on its feet. So what I wanted to do is I just wanted to read you four or five paragraphs from the story I wrote from Sports Illustrated and it will tell you why. In my opinion, drew Brees. Has done so much as a football player, but I believe as much for New Orleans psyche and New Orleans as a city post Hurricane Katrina. So this story starts in a in an event. I went to with Brees in New Orleans and I'll just start it in, you'll you'll hear why. I'm pretty impressed with breezes a human being last Thursday night in a private upstairs room. It commander's palace, the landmark New Orleans restaurant drew Brees convene what he called his secret society in the dining room where seven of the city's richest men and biggest boosters, power players who've anonymously teamed with Brees for such post Katrina causes as the refurbishment of tad Gormley stadium in city park and the funding of the New Orleans ballet associations flagging after school program breeze calls this group, the quarterback club as a token of. Thanks for contributions past and future breeze, dispense black and gold cufflinks engraved with QB. I'd like to propose a toast. He said, lifting his champagne, flute, all of you care so deeply about the future of this city, not just from business perspective, but for my philanthropic perspective and it's so desperately needed right now a toast to you and to New Orleans here here to New Orleans. The group responded earlier in the saints by week their quarterback had spent two hours working on another of his pet projects. The lush charter school for which he'd helped raise the money to build a new football field. Weight room scoreboard in running track after the September two thousand five hurricane had devastated the facilities and the surrounding uptown neighborhood. Now, nine days before New Orleans, playoff opener against the cardinals in the Superdome breeze. Chatted up in rubbed elbows with the men he knew could help him do real good for this city. Some guys might be playing ten hours. Mad today, which is cool. Breeze said is he took his seat after his toast, but this is my outlet. This is what I love to do. So that's one of the reasons why, in my opinion, I'm really impressed with drew. Brees is a football player, but I'm a little bit more impressed with drew Brees the human being who's using his star power to do something that really, really matters. And now my conversation with Justin Tucker, the kicker, the Baltimore Ravens. Back in the Peter King podcast, happy to be joined. I'm in New York. He's in Baltimore with Justin Tucker, the kicker, the Baltimore Ravens, and Justin has had quite a young career to his name so far. He's the only kicker in NFL history to have made more than ninety percent of his field goals. He just recently played his one hundred NFL game. And I, I was struck recently by watching him. In Pittsburgh in week, four of this season was struck by what incredibly automatic kicker he is become and I don't want that to be taken for granted because I've gotten to know Adam Viteri pretty well over the years. And I always think that the unfortunate thing a lot of times when it comes to kickers punters is that people really just kind of take for granted what they do. And the only time you really notice them is when they shank one or when when they get one blocked or when they miss one, you're supposed to make him hit. I sound like Bill Parcells now, that's that's what he always used to say, what are you talking about? He supposed to make it and that it actually does take quite a bit of skill and mental preparation anyway, just in happy to have you on the podcast. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. So I, I wanna start really with. Pittsburgh and I wanna ask you believe now you've made seventeen consecutive field goals in what I would call the Bermuda triangle for kickers Hines where people just don't seem to have much luck, especially at the longer kicks a. What is it about Heinz field? That's tough. Be. Has anybody informed you of this because you've made seventeen in a row there. So I say to answer part a, what makes Heinz field atop place kick at. It would be the same things that make Baltimore a kick. I've maintained over the last several years at, especially since we've gone to grass here in Baltimore. We have one of the stadiums to kick in as well, Cleveland Cincinnati. Everywhere that we play in our division. You know, we're playing outdoors, you're playing in some weather system, matter of, you know, compartmentalizing each and everyone of opportunities that we get and just taking each kick for what it's worth doing. Our best, you know put through, but what makes what makes Heinz field Cleveland, Baltimore, and Cincinnati. For that matter, the place kick top places to kick would be first of all the grass surface, you know that Heinz field and in Mt. Baker stadium have. Throughout the course of a game, the grass field can get up. It's never gonna, be the same in the fourth quarter as it wasn't the first quarter of pre-game. So getting your footing right, getting a firm plant. So your balance through the swing. That's that's definitely something we have to take into account, and then you know, we're, we're playing outside in our division and we're dealing with wind on a pretty regular basis. The other night we have as calm night as I can remember in Pittsburgh. So you know, it was just about hitting a straight ball and the footing, right? You know, swinging up through and you know that that certainly makes things a little bit simpler. But you know, all of those things do make it a little bit more interesting than you know, playing inside so to speak. Just an I. I have always thought that one of the interesting things about being a kicker in the NFL and you have elucidated this on several occasions that one of the things about being kicker in the NFL is that oftentimes you're not treated the way other players, you know who who play from scrimmage and who who get, you know, get knocked around maybe a little bit more than you do your oftentimes off by yourself, either you and the holder and the snapper you in the punter, whatever. But you're oftentimes off by yourself for large periods of practice. And so therefore there's a lot of times where year it's a team sport, a huge team sport, but you spend time by yourself or in a very small group away from the team, a lot during practice a what is that like. To then come into the larger group and be what does that? What does the preparation feel like when you're not oftentimes with the larger group? Yeah. So I would answer that by saying while seemingly I'm off by myself, it's more like we as specialists we are off by ourselves, so we're still with are kicking battery. So to speak, Morgan Cox are long snapper Sam Cooke, our punter and holder, and Randy Brown or kicking coach and Jerry roster. We all make it a point to follow our routine work through the same things. You know each and every opportunity we have on the practice field. I'm not just over there with a t in a in a ball, just kicking out a light pole by myself. I'm working with all of those guys, and I think that's part of the. Reason why we've been really good as we work on. You know, making ourselves just just a little bit better each and every day within our operation. You know, we're working on our timing together as unit. I think we're one of the longer tenured field goal operations in football right now, and that level of comfort that we have that level of toughness that we have going on the field is, you know, largely unmatched just because of the amount of time that we spend together and not just on our own doing our own thing. And then when we get into a team setting in practice, it's just like anybody else, you know, you're you're, you know, you're kind of, you know, getting a chance, put your talents on display for your teammates and a little bit more of a pressure situation just to build up, you know, toward what it's going to feel like on Sunday when you, you know, you're jogging out there in front of sixty thousand. Fans who are hoping that you do not do your job? Well. So you know, while while it could seem like I'm by myself just doing my own thing, we really are and I- infancy the we we really are working on making each other better. We might be separated in a sense, but I I would associate it to a lot of a lot of people make the comparison between kicking and putting and in Goff how it's a, you know, similar motion, static ball moment in time, but I think I would more closely associate what I do on the football field with what like a Mario Rivera does on, you know, on baseball in the baseball world where you know we are expected to come in and perform an exceedingly high level with limited opportunity or a limited number of reps rather. So yeah. Well, our offense might be out there for, I don't know, fifty sixty seventy eighty plays a game. I might be out there for. A cluding kickoffs, but you know those three or four or five opportunities that I get that you know our offense, our defense put us in position. They're expecting me to come back to the sideline with points. So in that way, you know, I think you were, you know, I'm probably a little bit more similar to closer in baseball in that, you know, just gotta make gotta make the most out of the limited number of reps and you know, hence the name specialists right. Justin, let's let's just go back in time to win the entered the league you or not. You weren't Abon his baby, you or not. He weren't even drafted. You came into the league in two thousand twelve basically on almost tryout basis with the Baltimore Ravens. And you came to camp that year and beat out of veteran, Billy Conn diff. But it's almost the same thing I've asked this question to Adam venit Terry because he had a very rocky path into the NFL totally no guarantee path where there was one team, one team that asked him to come in and kick for him, the New England Patriots and after three games of his NFL's NFL career in game three, he was one of four in field goals, and he entered his fourth game of his NFL career in nineteen ninety six thinking that if he missed a couple of kicks, he's going, he wasn't going to get on this kicker. Go round. Okay. Where where he was going to go try out for. Four teams, and he thought that quite literally, he was going to go back to South Dakota and go to med school. And if he was really fortunate and really lucky, he was going to study and one day he'd be cardiologists. That's really what he thought was going to happen in his life if he had a bad game in September twenty two years ago. So I wanna ask you about your path which was really, you're not an intimate guy coming out of the university of Texas into hiding down there. I do about me playing for the flagship school of the great state of Texas. So what were you feeling like in may two thousand twelve when when you were trying out and when you were kicking for the ravens that spring sure will twenty two year old me felt completely slighted just pissed off, disappointed. You know that whole chip on chip on your shoulder thing. I think I, I really applied that to, you know what I was trying to accomplish on the football field, but looking back looking back at the the whole draft process for me, how that or rather the, you know, going undrafted process for me. I look at the draft now just as a whole in. It's such an inexact science, you know you, you can have one guy who's you know, just a total baller comes in. He's a first rounder and he's everything you expect them to be. And then the next guy, you know a pick later pick before. He, you know, he the most he might do in his career is, you know he might amount to a role player, which is, you know, that's that's just the way it is sometimes, but I look back at my path into this league and you know, I think in kind of serendipitous way, everything worked out exactly how it was supposed to. You know, I landed. I landed in a place where I had an opportunity to compete and make a team, and you know, that's exactly that's exactly what happened. And then you know a whole perfect storm events lead us to win a Super Bowl, my rookie year. And you know, now I'm just itching to get back to another. But you know, in a in a long story, less long, I think I ended up exactly where I needed to be for for all the right reasons. One of my favorite Justin Tucker stories happen in two thousand thirteen Baltimore at Detroit. Tight game. You had kicked five field goals in the first fifty, eight minutes of the game twenty nine twenty four thirty to forty nine fifty three yards. But the lions went ahead. Late lions were ahead by a point sixteen to fifteen. Ravens are driving and they stall you stall and you go out there and you line up for a sixty one yard field goal, which not that this is the greatest thing ever, but there's never been a sixty one yard or longer field goal ever kicked in a dome stadium. But here you were Monday night football going out for that kick. Once you to tell me what you remember about that kick. What I remember about it is that I don't feel like I got all of it. I kind of I kind of came off my toe a little bit, and as soon as left my foot, I'm pretty sure Sam Cooke had the exact same feeling that I did, which was, oh, man left us when just little short and sure enough thing, kind of, you know, wild around a little bit and then snuck in through that, you know, right side of the uprights, but. I, if anything, you know that I could if I could point to any singular feeling that I had as soon as the ball cross cross across bar was relief because moments prior to kick, I just basically run out onto the field and it was being, you know, more or less call the back by the entire coaching staff, like what's he doing out there and. If I'm running out there like better make the kick. You mean you you, you went out there prematurely and you thought that they might want to run another play instead of trying to sixty one yard, like maybe a little bit of I. Yeah, I was you know, I was a, you know, kind of run out there. I turned a hard. I say, I got this and he's like, all right. Well, we're kicking it and then you know, I realize, okay, you know, this isn't fifty eight fifty nine. This is sixty one. I'm gonna really have to get hold of this ball and especially since I just told hard, I got this. Well, I better got this. So fortunately we were able to put that went through the uprights and then Mattiol and put the game away with the game sealing interception on the next drive. So I I would definitely say that's, that's one of the, you know, one of my favorite kicks at that I've been a part of and you get all of relief. Man just relief relief that it crossed crossed on the on the pro side of the upright. Harb's obviously being a Baltimore head coach, John Harbaugh who's been there since you've been there long before actually. But something happened after that game that I'd heard about I was I didn't cover that game, but I had heard about it that you are sort of reminded of your mortality after the game by by Ray Lewis. Tell tell everybody the story about what happened in the locker room after that game. I'm thinking here. Oh, okay. I think I know what you're talking about. You know what I'm talking about. So it was, it was says, yeah, it was says says, oh, you may Terrell suggs. Yep, made sure to remind me up there on the podium doing the post game, press conference, answering a few questions, and I, I hear the door kinda, you know, kinda come open and says poker ahead in, I don't even know if he came into the room. I think just heard him yell, hey, talk, don't let it get to your head. You're still just a kicker in what do you. What do you bring into the blank there. But he said, hey, listen, I just saved your bacon making. I scored every point that our team scored today buddy and I kicked a sixty one yard or win it. Maybe I'm a little bit more than just a bleep in kicker. His attempt that humbling me didn't really work. If you ask Machi mates. I'm to deal with sometimes, but, hey, man, that's, you know, when you make kicks, he can. You know, you have a little fun, and then you know, when you miss when you got to, you know, maintain that same level of competence and stuff to do. But Yep, suggs definitely gave me a a, not so friendly reminder. But you know, we, we know says, well, and we know at the end of day, it's coming from the very good place. It's coming from a place of love. Support for Peter King comes from our friends at rocket mortgage by Quicken Loans America's premier home purchase lender. Let's talk about buying a home.

Number thirty thirty. Sara? Yes. Mr President. What is this? This gusting new podcast, the Oval Office tapes people actually listen to this survey. Say they have secretly recorded tapes from within the White House. They're fake fudged. I never called Omarosa Kim Kardashian, and I never said Paul Ryan was a funding little. We'd, sir. You just got off the phone with him. I was sitting right here. How are they getting these tapes? Probably Miller or the failing New York Times or Barack Obama. I didn't say that please don't tweet that too late. So is this bad for us or is this like a pro-trump? I guess it's all behind the scenes. Look at what life is really like in your White House crab the Oval Office tapes on apple podcasts or wherever you find your favorite shows. Just that I, I, I want to ask you a couple of things about your mental approach to kicking. I find it interesting that that over the years that there's a lot of kickers who for whatever reason I'm thinking of Roberto Aguayo who who, honestly, I feel sorry for more than anything else because obviously he's a tremendously talented guy, but he just wasn't accurate enough to keep his job after being a second round, pick with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and and I wonder when I look at you, I've always wondered this. What is it about the mental side of what it is you do in the pressure that you're under? That just simply doesn't seem to bother you at all? Yeah, I think you know, I, I've been asked a handful of times. Do you ever get nervous or you ever scared before you attempt to field goal? You know, do you have butterflies in your stomach? And the honest answer is like, hell? Yeah, like I'm nervous. I'm scared, but it doesn't signify a lack of confidence. Finding your confidence through feelings that are tough is a challenge, but I think that's what you know is I think that is the hallmark of great specialist is a guy who's able to harness the energy from, you know, you know, feeling nervous or being there, I say scared and turning that into laser like focus, you know, I don't think you have to look any farther than out of an interior the best ever to do it. And he'd probably say the same thing like you like, yeah, it's okay to be nervous. Okay. To be scared. But. You know, that doesn't mean you're not confident. And in that you, you know deep down inside, you're good enough to make this kick, you know. So that's something. I mean, that's that's what I tell myself more or less, probably less because there's a lot less time between the snap the hold and the kick. You know, then my explanation that I just gave, you know those one point, three seconds though you, you can think a lot of stuff, but at the end of the day, just being confident and trusting your technique enjoying the moment. Aknowledging that, yeah, I'm a little nervous, but I'm getting a play, you know, NFL football on Sunday night in Pittsburgh, or I'm getting a play on Monday night football. You know, you just got to embrace those opportunities and just enjoy 'em. And that's, you know, that's that's what I try to do. What do you think you've learned about the mental approach to kicking since you've been in the NFL? Give me your, give me the lessons that you. You think you have learned about it? Sure. If I had the point to one thing, I would say think of the action and not the consequence. It would be really easy to get ahead of yourself and you know, think about what's my post kick celebration going to be like or on the flip side of that, man. I hope I don't miss this kick I, it's, it's, it would be very easy for anybody. You know, from from the, you know, the top ranks of the NFL all the way down to, you know, middle school football, it'd be very easy for any kicker to think any of those thoughts, but you're saying don't well at the end of sure, of course. But at the end of the day, thinking of the action of kicking the ball, having you know a wide square plant and finishing up through mashing my foot up to the ball at contact, thinking of, you know, things in. Simple terms as possible, just breaking it down and kicking the ball, solve all those problems. My grandfather told me in high school when I, you know, had had a chance to play for my varsity football team. He said, jussie. I'm just going to tell you one thing. Kick the damn ball. I like that in in in in all sincerity. Those are, you know, some of the best words of advice at ever received, and you know, keeping it as simple as just kicking. The damn ball makes makes a lot of those problems just disappear. When you ever look if you do at your stat line and looked down in see that all the kickers in the ninety nine year history of this game, the greatest one other than you. The first two numbers on their percentage is eighty. Eight made eighty eight percent of their kicks in their career. The first two numbers on yours or nine zero ninety percent kicks in your career, your two percentage points. As we record this ahead of anybody who's ever kicked a ball in an NFL game that is kinda, gee whiz, I would think, but what do you think when I say that to you. I'm just trying to make the next one. I mean, I don't wanna sound like a broken record or that. I don't appreciate that. You know, that's tough to do. That's tough to that's tough to accomplish and to keep going. But I'm just thinking about making the next kick taken at one kick at a time in those. You know, thinking in that way, I believe serves us well as a football team as a field goal unit. Just thinking about, you know, like I said, a minute ago, the action and not the consequence just thinking about the next kit can make in that one. I think that leads to making more kicks than not, you know, and when it's all said and done, hopefully that number stays at least where it is. And you know, it gets, you know, gets higher, but you know, it's about taking it one kick at a time and might tell a really boring answer, but you know what, honestly, honestly, if you say if your grandfather said, hey, just make the damn kick. That's same thing is just make the next kick, you know? I mean, you're not. Complicating it. That's probably a part of it. I'm totally with you. I'm totally with you on that at the exact same time coming out here onto the practice field and grinding through the details of how we make a kick. I'll hit one right down the middle and on film. It might look, you know, like everything that you want it to be, but there's a, there's a feeling there that I could have. Got that one a little bit better, and Sam will know. Morgan will know Jerry and snapper Sam Morgan Cox, your snappers, Sam, cook your holder, right? Yep, Yep. Harry Rosberg. Your special teams coach? Yep. And rainy Brown, or can you coach who's who's who's with us on a regular basis? You know, we all know we know each other well enough to, you know, I I wouldn't say nitpick, but I mean, that's kind of what we do. Sometimes, you know, we just grind on the details of what makes a kick the best it can be. So you know, I might hit one that looks really good, but we, we all know coulda hit it just a little bit better. Our specially, no, I can get a hold of that ball better. So you know, we line it up again and we, you know, and that's, that's stuff that we're doing. Like you said, you mentioned earlier when you know I'm off on everybody else's on field one and I'm over on field three or you know, later in the year when you know we'll have a little bit of weather and the rest of the team needs practice inside. You know, Jerry and Randy Morgan salmon, I will go outside. And will you. We'll try to get as much experience outside grind through the details of what we do. All of those things lied to us make kicks when we need to make them for sure. You know, you always hear about offensive lines. They're better when they stay together. Never forget. One of the first teams I ever covered was in New York Giants in the eighties, and they had an offensive line where the some absolutely was better than the individual talents of the parts. If there was a pro football focus in those days, I think most of those guys would be in the in the bottom half of their individual jobs. But collectively they played forty eight games in a row together, and they were really good because they knew what everybody was doing. And I wonder, do you believe that in this is such a layup question, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on it that the fact that since the moment you walked in there or really for a long time you've had event John Harbaugh had Jerry Ross. Berg is your. Special teams coach, you know you've had you've had for so long. You've had the same holder in Sam, cook your punter. You've had the same snapper in Morgan Cox in you'd. Have you've had you what does that mean to that? That sort of togetherness that cohesiveness? What does that mean to your job and your success? Oh, it's paramount. Having that continuity between all of us having that open line of communication between each and every one of us. To where we can pull out the best from each other. That's it's huge. The way the way Morgan approaches throwing the ball back there. Sam works on his hands to the point where I I would. I would say SAM's hands, rival, you know, like Odell Beckham any day of the week. You know, you got a, you got guys that grind on these on these details together. You know the ball, the ball almost kicks it self. You gotta have the right guy to kick it, but the, you know, the way these guys serve it up for me. It's, you know, it's, it's the best possible situation that a kicker could cook, kicker, could could possibly want to be in. I'm gonna finish with this question. I wonder I I would consider in Bill Belichick just talked about it this week. I would consider the best kick for the circumstances that I've ever seen in my life at events. Harry's kick through the snow in the playoff game. The tuck rule game against Oakland in two thousand one that was the patriots first Super Bowl year. Do you have any recollection of watching that kick when you must have been whatever, like eleven years old or something? Do you have? Do you? Were you watching that game or d. remember seeing that kick at all? I do. I do. I remember seeing. I remember that whole Super Bowl run and Attari knocking down the winter. That was when they played the, they played the Rams of that year. That's right. Okay. Yeah. So I remember, do you remember the kick against the raiders that forty five yards in the snow? Did you watch that? I do far and I'm with you that's far away the most impressive kick that I've ever seen anybody make to to be able to come through in that moment as big a moment as that that is in tough conditions as you could possibly be facing. And that's why he's goat. That's why Adam is the the best to do it. But I remember seeing that and seeing the Super Bowl following and then seeing Adam kick not just one, but two winters and Super Bowls. That was what prompted me and my dad to reach out to the guy who had. Initially trained Adam when he was living in his basically living in his pickup truck. And this guy's driveway in Abingdon, Virginia kicking next to to a graveyard learning how to kick a ball, you know the right way in that that coaches, Doug Blevins, of course, but seeing those seeing Adam mango is the guy who taught who taught Viteri. Yep. And seeing seeing Adam make those kicks prompted, you know us to, you know, get my first formal introduction into or formal instruction as to how to properly kickable with a time to kick all properly. I don't wanna split infinitive there. You were. You were a kicker in Texas at the time as a kid or. No, I I wanna say I was what year was that game thousand one summer of winter of two thousand one. Yeah, that's right. So so I, yeah, I was. I was playing soccer. I. Hadn't started playing football yet, but I was playing soccer and it was, you know, it was those kicks that you know, the Super Bowl winner against the Panthers and then looking back even farther, you know, once I got a chance to kind of dive deep into Adams, resume of big kicks in. There are a lot of them seeing all of that together is what prompted me to really take kicking the ball seriously. Wow. I had no idea about that. That's really, really interesting. Well, listen, we could talk for three hours someday. Maybe we will, but I really, really appreciate you talking to me about kicking and your life and what got you into it and everything like that. Justin. Thanks a lot for joining me on the podcast of course next year, having me Peter.

Back on the Peter King podcast, happy to be joined today in studio by Gary Myers who has written a really, really interesting book. You're gonna hear a lot about this month. It's called how about them Cowboys. And of course it's a book about the Dallas Cowboys. Gary Myers covered in the eighties broke. A lot of stories on in the eighties was an absolute in the saddle for the old cowboy regime of Tex Schramm gillibrand, Tom Landry, but also very, very highly respected by them as well. But anyway, Gary happy to be joined by you and how are you doing? I'm doing great. I really appreciate you have me on. I'm looking forward to this. Yeah, we. I, this is the way I feel about books about the Dallas Cowboys. I mean, what else is there left to say, right? I mean, you know about this era of the last era, whatever era about anything about Jerry Jones. But this is the thing that I find interesting about this book. Okay, so and I'm be honest, we have not read it covered a cover, but I have spent two hours with the other night going through it searching out little snippets to ask you about, and there's a lot of interesting little points that you make in here, but I want to start by asking you a journalism question when something is such well, trod ground and everybody has written and talked about him. They got the biggest media contingent in the world and all that. What. Makes you so confident that you can come up with something that people don't know or that you can come up with a book full of stuff that people don't know. That's a great question. And I think I'll stop by saying that I feel I have a unique perspective on the Cowboys having been there for eight years and covered him on a day-to-day basis and been there for the end of the land you regime and the very beginning of the Jerry Jimmy regime. So I think I have that background in grain and may just by being there. Then I think there was a lot of territory that needed to be covered in this book. I know that Jeff promo came out with a book. I think I ten or twelve years ago maybe that just to a completely different approach that was more. I don't know if I want to use the word scandalous, but a lot of the stuff that happened behind the scenes. You know, off the field stuff that kind of played into the page six mentality that a lot of people have and it was. It was very interesting and interesting read the approach to originally the name of the book was gonna Cowboys Inc, and I was going to write just about the business aspect of the Cowboys and how a team that hasn't been in the Super Bowl in over twenty years is stole the most popular profitable and highly valued team in the world. And then you know, I saw talking to Jerry and Stephen Charlotte, and Jerry junior, and then Rome on Witton and. Then Everson walls and Tony Dorsett. I just found those a lot of stuff there that really interested me. So I convinced that Cowboys Inc idea into chapter two. And the rest of it I think is really fun behind the scene stuff about how this really what is a five billion dollar mom and pop operation how it really works on a day-to-day basis. I think there's some great anecdotal type stories in there that people really gonna enjoy reading. I want you to start at the beginning because to me the Jerry Jones, Tom Landry relationship for those for younger listeners who don't quite remember this. Jerry Jones bought this team in nineteen eighty nine. And when he bought the team, he had to make a gigantic change. He felt he got rid of the coach, Tom Landry. And he got rid of basically all the people who were closely identified with the Dallas Cowboys at the time. You know, you're getting rid of Tex Schramm and you're getting rid of Gil Brandt. And this at the time they had had a nearly thirty year run of greatness. Maybe twenty twenty three of great, but a thirty year memorable memorable run and he he got rid of all. And and the story for years was that Tom Landry went to his grave hating Jerry Jones and being bitter over being fired, and you contributed some reporting to this that I have to admit. I had no idea about. Yeah, I mean, and speaking to Gerry. I asked them. How many times did he run into Landry between the time he went down to Austin to fire him, and when Tom passed away and your early two, thousands, and he said he had seen them a year or two later at the giants. Ravens swear bowl in Tampa, kinda cross paths at a restaurant. And then after that, he kept asking Tom to let him be inducted into the ring of honor and Tom kept turning 'em down. And then Jerry told me the story and I didn't know this that there was signs on the highway in Dallas ridiculing Tom for not accepting Jerry's invitation to be in the ring of honor, calling him a chicken, and I would have liked to see some sides, but So Jerry was really bothered by that. And one of the reasons he bought the team was because of the success that a guy like land that Tom Landry had in developing the image and reputation and a brand of the Cowboys. It made it very attractive for joy to wanna buy the team, but he wanted Jimmy Johnson as coach. He wanted. He would want to Jimmy Johnson of his coach as coach, regardless of who was coaching the cowboy. So he felt really bad about relationship that he didn't have what Tom and they had a mutual friend named Bill park who was at the time to president of Kroger's really big supermarket chain throughout Dallas and other parts of the country, and Bill acted as intermediary and offered to set up a lunch between Jerry and Tom at bill's house in Dallas and Tom accepted the invitation and the sat around the living room for a little bit. And then Bill had a a lunch set up in the dining room, and he left the two of them alone and they spoke for hours and they came out of that lunch with Tom, having agreed to be inducted in the ring on or and a couple months later during the ninety, three season, Tom Landry stood at midfield at a Texas stadium and accepted being inducted. So really cool story. And then Jerry later got the statue of. Tom outside Texas stadium when that stadium was about to be imploded and they were opening the new one, Jerry put the stadium the statue in storage facilities keeping. And that was once the stadium was complete. They put it back up outside one of the gates at eighteen stadium. So I don't know how much contact necessarily had in the years after the ring of honor. And then Tom passing away like eight or ten years later, but I know that they were on good terms and that lunch is what set it all I was gonna ask you. So how do you think Tom Landry felt in his last years on earth of Jerry Jones? I think he was fine with them. He really did understand that when the team gets sold and it was the second time the team had been sold when Vom bright bought the team in eighty four. He was about his hands off and owners. You composites. Imagine he hated Landry but wouldn't fire him. He hate Lange because ignored him at a cocktail party once and he never forgave him. And wanted Schramm to fire them. But text wouldn't do it teeters Peter. The really interesting thing and this is the truth and I lived through this. So I know in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight, two Cowboys with three and thirteen eighty seven to fans love the strike team replacement t. more than they loved the regular team. They wanted to the players to stand on strike in eighty seven because the replacement team to them was fun. It was young team and the cared and they had grown tired of the Landry era. The cowboy fans used to call Brad Shams. Radio show in Dallas and plead with him Tex please fire Landry became past and by. We've had enough Lange. We need one of these young guys in here. So then in February of eighty nine, Jerry Jones comes in does exactly exactly what I want to interrupt. You ask you one quest that, but isn't it true that the Dallas Cowboys almost almost intact trims last year. You know before he ever almost hired mardi shot. Heimer. You know, I never heard the Schottenheimer part, but he tried to hire Jimmy Johnson that I know. Wow. So I- perhap- was shot in Highmore to be the head coach is okay. See, I noted Texan. Schottenheimer close because the competition committee. But the story that I heard was a text reached out to Jimmy because Jimmy was was rumored to be talking to the eagles and said, we don't want you to go to Philadelphia come here as defensive coordinator. It's only a matter of time before I convinced Tom to quit, and you'll be the head coach. He actually did that with Paul Hackett in eighty six hiring him from the forty Niners Tom hated Hackett. He was made the passing game coordinator at a time that everybody was just an offense. Of course, always pretty tough when you get told to hire a guy. Oh yeah. On your staff, you know, and Jimmy, Jimmy. I don't know if he's got revisionist history or what, but he claims that he doesn't recall that conversation with Tex offering to come in his to coordinate. But techs told me the story. So I know that it was true and Jimmy at that point had won a national championship in Miami and he wasn't going anywhere unless he was going to be a head coach. So anyhow, just finish this up in February. Eighty nine. Jerry comes in bum, bright, had offered to fire Landry for him to kind of limb stole with a clean slate. And Jerry says, no, you know, I want to be a man about this. This is my decision. I'll do it. So you get this guy from the wrong side of the Red River in Arkansas coming in and firing Saint Landry who all of a sudden became a mater Peter. They threw a parade in downtown Dallas with a hundred thousand people showing up every got fired the same fans once in a hanging effigy earlier. So is me of Eli manning now. So I always contained. They're getting fired was the best thing that happened to Landry post football years because instead of going out as a coach, who lot of people thought the game had passed him by he went out as mortar figure like poor time, you know, Joe, how dare Jerry Jones fire our Tom, when in reality they wanted him fired and Jerry did what they wanted. Gary Myers author of a new book on the Dallas Cowboys, which I really like, how about them Cowboys inside the huddle with the stars and legends of America's team, Gary, I think not many people know the next two things I'm gonna ask you about her things that I don't believe. Many people know. The first one is. When Jerry Jones bought this team in nineteen eighty nine, he was stretched so thin to buy this team to come up with the cash that there were times during the process where even he admitted to those closest to him. I don't think I have the money to do this. This is really going to be a stretch, how so a, how desperately did Jerry Jones wanna buy this team when it was really at its dear of of being any good, you know? And then do you think there is a chance that maybe he wasn't going to get approved while I think the only way he wouldn't have got approved if it didn't come out with his wonderful golden parachute fatigue Schramm because. Tex was very close with Roselle and all the owners and and Jerry was was running him off. So the point that a came for Jerry to get approved or not approved, I don't think it was an issue. The financial was an issue and besides the fact, and they changed roles after he had already fired Landry he got rid of shrimp and brand, and now they were going to say, no, we're not approving you. So they changed the rules. These guys will buying teams can no longer make these changes until they get approved, which makes a lot of sense, but the Cowboys losing a million dollars a month when Jerry took over right. And that was a terrible strain on him. And that's why he was concentrating almost entirely on the business side and lending Jimmy handle the football operation besides the fact that they took over team that had no talent, but did inherit the first pick in the draft and took Troy Aikman and had Herschel Walker. And we know that they made that great trade that set them up for the future. But financially the fans weren't coming out anymore. Team went one in fifteen thought to Jerry Jimmy. We're over their heads. I asked you like to story, I asked Jerry, what's the worst business deal he ever made? And he was, you know, Jerry talks and it's sometimes you know, you really got to cut through it, but he had bought an interest in a bunch of cellphone companies around eighty seven or eight. And he didn't pay tremendous amount of money for it a couple hundred thousand dollars. But when it came time to buy the team, he had a cell that interest because he needed the money to put towards the purchase of the team. We sold it for a million dollars and then the cell phone era exploded and eight years later, that portion that he Seoul was were seven hundred million dollars a home. I got. Was he sick about it? Well, he was except when I said, well, you pay one hundred and fifty four million for the Cowboys. So now worth five billion. And if you actually needed that million to buy them, then it was probably a good deal. He was just, you know, that just really shows that he really was scraping together every last bit as most people do when they're when they're buying their first house or something like that. This was a dream his, you know, he almost bought the chargers. Many years earlier in his father talked him out of it, and he told me a story about when his father Pat cold them after bought the team and basically says to son, I've been reading everything about you. You're getting killed in the papers, you better not strew this up and it goes, thanks that. So Gary for people who might have an impression of Jerry Jones, who might think that, for instance, he's a, he's just a loud mouth and and maybe as looked into some of this and all that. Tell people about the Jerry Jones who you know. Well, the Jerry Jones that I got to know when my three months in Dallas before I moved back to New York. So basically February through may of of nine hundred ninety. Nine was a guy who I almost felt sorry for in a way because of the way he was being treated in the media and by the fans, everybody thinking who, as bumpkin from Arkansas who had no clue what he was doing, you know, fired the whole organization. Then he started losing and people really data that he knew what he was doing. But the Jerry that I know that I know now he's got to be the smartest businessman I've ever come across. And there are a lot of good businessman. Robert Kraft obviously is tremendous, but what he's done with the stadium and the star to further the brand of the Cowboys. Is amazing. We know how he got into the whole fame basically because of the way he helped the NFL. Changes business operation, interred millionaires into billionaires, but the things that he's done with his team, for example. Joey junior had a lot to do with some of the things that go on the star and Jerry are for everybody who training complex is training complex, which is beyond state of the art, right? So Jerry junior, just coming up with these ideas to spend a million dollars on a on a meeting room or draft room, and just those things extravagantly and Jerry said we'd better not lose money on this. I don't have the stomach for this, and so the draft room they with one of their sponsors. I wrote a run contest towards the end of August. You win the contest. You get to hold your fantasy draft in the same room that Cowboys Cowboys war-room came. That's great. Bell check nets the team meeting room. They rent out to corporations for for retreats. And so he's found a way to squeeze every dollar out of that building and they were going to open a health club in conjunction with equinoxes. Yeah. And when they found out that the return on the dollar was so tremendous thirty five percent, right? You make you make thirty five cents on every dollar. That's right. I read that in the book and I said, Jerry is not going to let that stand. No. So Jerry junior has a meeting with the guy from equinoxes and comes back and says, dad, we don't want to be in business with somebody on a on a health club. We want to own. So they they have a magnificent magnificent health club at the star. And if you're looking, you get to be in the hot tub. Dak Prescott. Do you know that they had a Mariah machine at valley ranch, which was a role training complex as you know, and they just thought it would make it easier to have the machine there, but it wasn't really financially feasible. They weren't getting their money's worth out of it as many injuries as you have any NFL you're still not getting your money's worth out of a very expensive machine. So with the doctors in the area, they to conjunction with a lot of the doctors and their patients that you send your patients to valley ranch. You know, they charge them for the city Mariah, but you you can have your patients in the same MRI machine is Jason Witten. And they had them lining up. I mean, even people who weren't hurt when. You want to be in the same MRI machine as Tony Romo when it had his collarbone broken who wouldn't hit. So I wanna I want to end by talking a little bit about modern times and by asking about. Roger Goodell Jerry Jones. We all know that Jerry fought every step of the way and when Zeki Elliott got a six game suspension before the two thousand seventeen season. But I, I wanna know what you know that I don't know about this because there are some things in there that really a lot of people didn't know because it was a strange time to refresh everyone's memory. This suspension took place not long after Jerry gut into the pro football hall of fame was enshrine had is, you know, had his speech in canton and had a party where Roger Goodell attended it. And Roger Goodell had to know when he attended that already that he was going to be whacking Jerry Jones within a matter of days or maybe a couple of weeks. So what don't I know that you know about this Jerry to this day stone SIS, that Roger had told. Him that he was not suspending Elliott, and he told me that for the third time and as recently as the March league meetings in Orlando this year, and after he told me that I met with Roger after his final press conference the league meeting, and I said, I just need to ask you this again, Jerry insists that you told them Zeke was not being suspended. Would you have say to that? He goes to that happen. He goes, no, n period opioid, no. Is something about that you don't understand. Don't kill me. I'm only the messenger, but the thing that's interesting about Jerry's whole famed party. I can remember. No. Okay. So I was there and I saw Roger there and I did not see when they were talking and I have a great picture in the book of Jerry and Bon Jovi and Roger standing together all with a glass of whatever in their hands. And so the caption in the in the road in the book was Jerry Jones was living on a prayer if you thought that Roger, good anyhow, Rogers at that party. Now, five days later is when he call Jerry to save suspending Zeke. So you know that Roger had a note that warning. And so what he didn't wanna do was ruined Gerry's weekend, right? But what he did do was Rune Jerry season and five days later when he called him, Jerry says, don't do that. And Jerry says, while I will call you back when my official. Vision tomorrow, and he called him back and said, I'm suspending him six games and the relationship between Jerry and Roger right now is really interesting, but Jerry was very quick to point out that he goes, you know, I still send Roger a Christmas card and a Christmas ornament this year alone, every owner. And I do that every year. So I think Jerry's business acumen is crucial to the league, and I think it's important for Roger, not to not sure agreed with Elliott suspension, but at least a length of it. But I think it's really important important for Roger, not to play favorites, and he's probably alienated who's to closest allies in the last four or five years in Robert Kraft and Jerry Jones finishing up with Gary Myers, Gary. The last thing I would say about just the Cowboys kind of imprint on society. I guess I would ask you why after doing the research this book d, you believe that the Cowboys are such a gigantic part of Americana. It's a phenomenon and I really do believe they've completely surpassed the Yankees and Notre Dame, and even if the basketball team you want to mention, they just didn't unbelievable job in the late sixties when they lost this championship games too. The Packers of becoming a team that took to heart strings of football fans, because he always such an underdog, they were only you know, the only came into being in nineteen sixty and by the mid sixties. They were going against, you know, Lombardi Packers for championships and then being on on the late afternoon slot on thanksgiving every year, which Schramm volunteered forecast. Nobody ever wanted to play on thanksgiving. So for the lions and the Cowboys and getting that late afternoon slot more from not having a late afternoon doubleheader game on CBS or FOX or NBC being on Monday night football when it was a really, really big deal to be a Monday night football. More than anybody else. Now, you know with you there on Sunday night football more than any other team, they, they have just people. The love them is such a cliche, but it's really true people either love him or hate him, and nobody feels indifferent about him. And that was, that's what makes them really special. I'm doing a book signing in New York at a bar in Manhattan at bills itself is the official bar of the TAOs Cowboys. They have their watch parties there every Sunday. I had no idea Cowboys fan club in there in every city in the country. I know that with a moose calls at giant stadium in a big game of ninety three between the Cowboys and giants, and it was blown away by how many cowboy fans have gotten into into building. But to think does actually two bars. Manhattan I'm doing signings at that are calbos bars, and I'm doing this is really cool. I'm doing a signing at at star in October eighteenth and have Jason Witten, Daryl Johnston and Everson walls joining me. So that's going to be great. It's going to be a lot of funny. A lot of fun, Gary Myers author of how about them Cowboys inside the huddle with the stars and legends of America's team. Thanks so much for joining Gary Peter. I've known you forever, and this is the first time you've ever asked me questions and it was a lot of fun. I think you have me on. Thanks to my guess Justin, Tucker, and Gary mind.

We're recording about an hour after the game finished up is the great, Michael kissed, you know him from the Kistin Solex show and all the other things. He does here for bleeding, green nation, dot com. And BGN radio. You can follow him on Twitter at Michael. Kissed NFL Michael big win by the by the birds here on Sunday. How you doing buddy doing fantastic. Hello to you this the first podcast that we're doing together, I'm glad it's under these circumstances shadow to Derrick Barnett and Benjamin solar. I'm sure we'll get into that in a little bit. But yeah, man, big, big win a little bit of a sloppy win, but it w is. W could work on it from there once his back. All his right in the world. Yeah, and we're gonna get into everything we're going to get into the defense. We're getting it into the penalties. We're get into the offense and we're gonna get into Carson Wentz coming up here in just a minute. I want to just remind you to be a subscriber to the bleeding green nation podcast feed wanna, make sure you're doing that on apple podcast, Stitcher, Google podcast, Spotify, wherever it is you get your fine podcasting, go subscribe to the bleeding green nation podcast feed, and that's where you're gonna hear us. Yep, about this game because you know, like you said, Michael, it didn't look pretty. This was not a game that you're gonna put in the archives by any stretch of the imagination, but this was a victory. And as we always used to hear Andy Reid, say any victory you can get in the NFL is a good victory. And that's what we have. You know, this was a defense that we know plays better at home than on the road and that board self out here in the game on Sunday. But the thing obviously everyone is going to be talking about is how Carson Wentz looked. And honestly, there may have been a little bit of rust in there. Some. Where but it certainly was not there to start the game. And I gotta believe if he had a full complement of talent around him, we would've seen a much different ballgame here on Sunday as it is whence returns and goes twenty-five, thirty seven, two hundred fifty five yards with a touchdown and an interception. We saw a lot of good. We saw some bad in there. I think this is probably exactly what most people were expecting to see in his first game since last December a little bit uneven, but you saw the flashes, Michael. Yeah. And the scripted stuff early in the game was really working well. I like the way that we use the twelve and thirteen personnel tight end three tenants tight and sets with Dallas gutter who we've been screaming about Zach, ertz and Josh Parkinson's. I really count him as a wide receiver now says, I really don't line him up in line, but they were spreading it out the way I wanted. One of my keys to the game coming into it was to spread this defense results and take what was there because they're soft shells on defense, keep everything in front and then come in to attack the football. The reason that the Redskins weren't able to get points. On the board against them because they had a vertical game plan. So I liked it the way that the eagles put in some quick hitting throws for Wentz to kinda get comfortable everything in that beginning script looked looked fantastic. They March right down the field when they started to get beyond that opening script, you saw some Russ from Carson. You saw some some slow, read some, some missed wide receivers. You saw a couple high balls which were used to with once being, you know, particularly jacked up in the beginning of games so that that was there too. But then which also saw this dude is not going to change the way that he plays when it comes to scrambling around and trying to make plays in that, you know, lead to some sacks to some fumbles like you said, sloppy game, ten, ten penalties, one hundred ten yards, four fumbles. We lost one and it put the defense bad situations. But overall I didn't expect wants to come out and look like he was going to be Evie p form right away. But what we saw was encouraging looks like the Niyaz and bothering him at all. It's not causing any issues with his throwing motion or anything like that. He still moves around very, very well. So very, very encouraging signs from Carson Wentz who comes in and gives a big. W. today. And I know Brandon saw a lot of Carson Wentz during training camp and said, he looked amazing and Benjamin said the same thing when when he would watch him play during the during the summer and as we kind of got later into the preseason and some of the non contact drill that he was doing that he just he looked as athletic is as he could be and that the arm strength would was obviously there. And you know, there was some some wondering how would that bear out in game situations. But you mentioned at the f. lettuces them doesn't look like he suffered a knee injury at all. We saw him dance out of trouble on numerous occasions in this game to keep his eyes downfield exactly the same stuff we saw last year and it's just such an amazing even though he he didn't have a great day. When you look at the numbers, it's not going to be a day that you're gonna. Remember as being one of Carson Wentz his best ever. But when you look at the talent that he had around him and you consider the fact, this was his first game of the season, some of the plays that he made with his legs, some of the things, the playmaking ability that you see there just as it's so night and day compared to Nick. Foles the fact that he can extend plays when they break down like that. It's amazing to see what a the difference between Nick foles who performed admirably and a guy who is it looks like going to be an MVP candidate every year from here on out just just on what he can do on the field. Yeah. And the other thing not only just extending place, much better than foles can do falls gifts roll into his right and things start to get ugly from there. But once extends but he also challenges tight windows and I also put this up on bleeding, green nation dot com. I believe it was on Saturday about how using NFL next gen stats. You could see how this offense was going to change and the lack of separation that we're getting from the wide receivers and tight ends that we have right now because we are so depleted in that area. Foles was not as willing nearly as willing as wants to challenge those tight. Windows doesn't have the same arm, strength as Wednesday does, and that's what we saw today was whence was, you know he was putting his players in a position to go make a play on the football, even if. The coverage was tight, and you saw him throw some through some strikes in some windows that foles would have doubled tripled clutched on, especially the tip obey buccaneers game or held the ball for an average of two point, nine two seconds. So overall, you still saw a quarterback who was aggressive in his mentality in that something that this offense needs to enhance the talent around him and bring it up. Rising tides result boats type situation with him because he's a quarterback that you win because of. So he's still that same quarterback despite the Russ in all those things, he's still going to go out there and make some place at other quarterbacks just simply can't make our won't make right. And once in a while he's gonna ease gonna force. The turnover like he did on the interception on the pass intended for. Earth's tried to get it through a tight window as an ill-advised pass. He obviously should not thrown it, but he's going to convert more of those probably than he's gonna allow to have interceptions and when you're a gunslinger I know that's he fancies himself as a guy who likes to take risks, and we didn't see this team go down the field all that much in this game. A lot of it was was intermediate stuff. It was. It was within ten fifteen yards. But they don't really have the personnel to go deep right now. So I thought it was. I thought it was important that, like you mentioned at the beginning that they played a lot of thirteen personnel. If you're going to consider Josh Perkins a tight end at this point, but that we saw hurts and got a lot out on field today and you know, just slow clap, forgot her seven catches for seventy three yards and a touchdown. In this one, you see, you need to have him in the game plan. Michael. I mean, he needs a guy. He needs to be a guy that is going to be a big part of the game plan every week because especially while Sean Jeffrey is out and especially until they if they go out and get Jeremy Macklin this week and they get him up to two game spear whatever. They're gonna, be short at wide receiver. It's not a big mystery. Why wide receivers didn't really have any any numbers today? Why they didn't get a lot of attention. They're not good. They don't really. They don't have the personnel there right now. So Erz and Goddard is that's how you have to operate. If you're the eagles right now, they're kind of makeshift with how they're doing their wide receivers right now as well. And some guys are playing a little out of position. You know, we brought in Jordan Mathews. Who had two catches in and twenty one yards today, people are acting like he was gonna get sixty staps you kind of knew that wasn't the case. If you really thought up a heating, even playing the slot, it was Agla playing slot for the most part and he had a quiet day to, like you said, the game plan against this colts defense that would that soft-shell and taken away the deep pass and keeping everything in front, what they had to do was to execute and just take the plays that were there. And there were couple of times that that one's got a little more aggressive than he should have, but what the eagles were really good at doing was sitting in those off zones. And there were there were times I think it was the first drive. It was twelve plays seventy nine yards. And then you've got the last drive in the fourth quarter that was seventeen plays seventy plus yards. Eleven minutes and eight seconds. That's what the colts defense was going to force us to do. So I'm not worried about the lack of downfield shots. That's just a construct of the way that the colts play their defense. You have to execute. They're gonna make you go, fifteen plays. Eleven plays. Seventeen plays down the field and. Execute the entire way. And if you make a slip up or penalties cost you on your drive, like you saw a lot from there from the eagles or there's a drop or something in there, they end up with a sack, any kind of sloppy play like that from the offense. They really capitalize on that and get you in long down in this situation. So the eagles had the good in that and being able to do that on a couple of their drives. But then they kinda stalled out in the middle of the game was m- sloppy play. But overall, again, with the weapons that were dealing with whence came out played well, thought Dallas Qatar played really well, and that's a guy that we can get on the field and we can run the ball with him on the field to not like we can with Josh Perkins, you get him Zakar, it's you get those double wing looks and you run the ball affectively behind him. That's perfectly fine. And if you can get that running game going, you get yourself and plus situation just compla- action little bit. The offense is going to be better for that. So I'm glad to see that Doug Peterson, read the tweets and Todd got out there. Well, and you mentioned the fact that you can play guttered when you're when you're running the ball well, and the eagles obviously ran the ball well today, too, is. Listen to runningback unit is banged up, but that was a huge help to Carson Wentz on that last drive, you saw you saw Wendo small wooden clery commit, get big runs to keep the drive alive and the colts also shot themselves in the foot a little bit on that final drive to with a couple of important defensive penalties that helped eagles out. But I think one of the biggest revelations on the day to me was Wendell Smallwood. Michael ten carries fifty six yards. Some big runs. I mean, obviously he's he's has some holes in his game, but he also caught three balls for thirty five yards. He's he doesn't have great vision. He's not the most athletic guy in the world, but for this game, at least for one game, at least he was he was a real plus out there and and led. The team led the team in rushing yards actually tied with Corey Clemente who also had fifty six yards on sixteen carries, but five point six yard per carry for window small today. Listen, I mean, that's just that's stealing money. I mean, that's that's, you know, icing on the cake. You don't expect to get that from window small would. I was very close to my prediction. Said that climate would get fifteen carries a small would would get eight. I figured that was the distribution. They, they were going to go and look. The way that we talk about Wendell Smallwood has been changed so much over time just because he hasn't been available when he was on the field before he's an adequate running back. He's nothing special. He's not bad though. People are talking about him as if he's a bad running back, people are upset with him because he can't get on the field. That's the core of the issue when he's on the field. He's perfectly capable and he's, you know, he's a favorite of juice daily because he can. He can be affective in this offense. Now, again, not going to get these big door busting runs out of them, but he can be officiant. He was today, and he also showed up in the passing game, getting thirty four yard, big time, catchy, ran right up into the open, but yet the the combination of Clement Smallwood and Josh Adams who got his his first real action today really impressive. And that's really all we need with them with a quarterback. Carson Wentz as once starts to get his sea legs under him. And we start to acclimate and get some of our weapons back. Just an effective run game, just just don't put us in in negative situations because we can't get that established. That's what you saw from Clement and smaller. That's what we need right now. I can't wait to get JJ Bax JJ but the running backs to good job today. And I commend the for yen and a little bit of a heads up to Josh Adams, you know, thirty yards on six attempt. He had a twenty six yard carry in the second quarter. Got a little bit. You said a Josh Adams in this one too. So it was. It was definitely much needed for Carson. 'cause you know, hey, listen. I mean, Carson wasn't gonna I didn't. I thought Carson, which start off rusty or than he did, but you're right. Having those he, they really worked on those scripted plays during the course of the week, and you could tell that's when he was at his most comfortable until that final drive when when they when they methodically moved down the field. And you know, we saw last year with Carson Wentz to one of the biggest reason that he was successful was converting on third down specifically, third and long and converting in the red zone, and the eagles had a couple opportunity. They didn't convert on every red zone opportunity. But on that final drive, when you. You need seven, you get seven. There you go up for you force Indianapolis to also have to get into the end zone on their next possession. That's a whole different ballgame. It's the eagles were playing a bend, but don't break defense, hippie what they do when they're in cover three. But you had a feeling that the eagles needed seven on that drive in order to really ice this thing away because that forces the colts to have to go the length of the field that's much bigger hurdle mentally for an offense when they know we gotta get it in the end zone here on this last drive. So I mean, that's that's one of the things that makes that made Carson Wentz. So good last year was converting inside the red zone and they did that on the final drive as well. Yeah, I'm you see that in their play calling to, they know when they're going to go for it on fourth down. I think they know by second Downer when they hit a certain area of the field that you know in this situation, we're definitely we can take third and six or a third and twelve and get a six yard gain and be totally fine with that because we know it's going to be hard to get twelve yards in a single play against this defense. You saw the play calling kind of acclimates what the colts were doing defensively. Of course Carson, you know, he's going to be able to fit it in those windows in the situations. And you know, shout out to the to the colts defense for executing, really, really well on their end and making it hard for the eagles to convert those third along situations. I believe it was a third and long and the colts were running to high safety, which is so weird with me cooker though, because he's a deep, third safety. Awesome. At is run more cover three, but whatever police was a half hield safety on the other side of the field and sprinted over to the other side to the other safeties responsible area and was able to just get his hand on a pass that was intended for Aglona third long, a heck of a play Darius Leonard, resign all over the place. Margus hunt was really disruptive, and I give him a lot of credit because I was doubting his affect in this coming into the game. He had to get game. 'cause like Bobby Hart. And you know, some bums like that. But he, he played really well overall, this colts defense while they be may be vanilla. They force you to execute, and they also are able to make some splash plays here there. But. But yet overall in the red zone, you know the the missed field goal by Jake Elliott always hurts. And that's something that I think were increasingly going to talk with about Elliott because some of MRs just absolutely baffling and we got a cash in on his opportunities in the less we can trust him the more we have to go for it in those situations, the more stress it puts on this offense. Yeah, I mean that sixty one yard or that was week three of last year. So it's been about calendar year since at sixty one yard, but it gets a little bit more dicey. I mean, we've seen with kickers. I mean, it can go, it can go really quickly and you know he has that he has at mid range area. It seems like between thirty and thirty seven thirty eight yards where it's all it's awfully dicey in this. His miss kick today obviously was longer than that. But yeah, with Elliot, we've seen Mike, we've seen it in the league this year. We've seen kickers just have an all kinds of problems right now. Two two teams kick their kickers off their rosters because of brutal brutal play last week in third because of an injury had to go out and sign somebody else. So there's there's not a lot of talent out there. You're hoping Jake Elliott. Can turn it around, but man, some of these you wanna have confidence in your kicker, and we saw at the end of last year, I mean that huge kick at the end of the Super Bowl to put him up. Eight was a money kick. You know that he has it in him to be a money kicker. It's just a matter of him being able to do that all see, also missed an extra point in that game too. And I say, I have to go back and rewatch this game. I think something may have gone wrong with the snap in this game, but still, we know it's an issue. This is this is nothing you know. Now for sure, offensive line wise seemed as though there was some, you know, especially on the winds, fumble deep in his own territory or lane. Johnson got school a little bit. We saw Jason Peters with a couple of false starts. Seems like you know the did okay in the run game, but it was a little bit inconsistent and with pass protection, we saw Carson was running for his life. If you times, what are your thoughts on the offensive line and how they handled culture pressure today? Yeah, that's something I really want to see the film for for certain things. I do think that Jason Peters is still dealing with. The knock right now and is a little bit rusty since he hasn't played meaningful football in a while. He's just coming back. But some of some of the false starts as has got to be more in tune with the offense there. I think it'll be fine in that overall, though, you worry about the lettuces them because I don't think he's at the level of athlete that he was before the injury last year. And I don't know if that's because of the injury that he's dealing with right now or because of the injury that he that the past major injuries that he's had just sapping his athleticism and his age still adorn effective player. But you do worry about that and it's something attract long-term, the five sacks. What I wanna see from the film is, you know, were they wasn't particularly paying too much attention on it, but were they three step drops that Carson just held onto the ball bit more you no longer than he should have were? Were there open routes in front of him because he did miss some open routes in front of him being a little Russell rusty mentally after those scripted plays like we talked about or were they longer drop. So it was a. Product of, you know, holdings of the ball on some cricketing things where they got a jump set and they feel like they only have to hold that block for a couple seconds and they can work from there as bad as that sounds because you know, you've got Carson behind you. You have to block a little bit differently for Carson because he's going to be all over the place. Maybe he runs his his impression every now and then, but you know, Carson's not gonna change. In that matter. You can't ask them to change. He's always going to be like that. And there's going to be a big discussion around Carson. Does you need to calm down? He's not going to. So we need to stop asking him to. But yeah, you know, overall, like you said in the run game, the offense of line was fine, pass protecting that. Something that I would look into a little bit more and probably be put some clips on the time line and whatnot. But overall thought it was solid. I think they can play better in pass protection though. I will say that, well, let's just finish up the offense talking about just mentioned as Doug Peterson, you know, a lot of talk coming into the week about, you know how much she would miss Frank Reich, or you know whether or not that the, you know what? Frank. Rex absence from being part of the coaches room was having eagles offense. Held the clock for forty and a half minutes in this one, three hundred seventy nine yards scored twenty points, but you know, they didn't have a giant. They didn't have sproles Jeffrey Wallace and a couple of new guys in there. That's that's not bad, you know, and you've got a quarterback who hadn't played since since last December. Certainly not a bad effort there by by Doug Peterson, trying to guide his team through a game that you know, I think a lot of past eagles teams would have lost this game. This is a team. This is a championship team. These are the defending Super Bowl champions into come out and win a game. Like this is the kind of games they won last year that that helped them run their record to thirteen and two before that last game of the year against Dallas that that didn't really count. Let's flip it over to the defense now, Michael. And obviously, the guy we have to talk about first is the guy that Benjamin Sollac obviously would never want us to talk about. I saw about Derek bar net one and a half sacks, including the huge clincher on fourth goal with a minute nineteen left from the eagles for Doug Peterson said, after the game, you can see the kid getting better every week. We've all been waiting for it, Michael. I know you guys talked about it this week. You know, when we're going to see Derek Barnett actually make an impact. When were we going to actually see him make a play that a first round draft pick would make, and for this game, at least and for this one play at least Derek Burnett stepped up and made a play that absolutely had to be made. Yeah. And there's a couple of ways I could go with this at Barron, but I'll try to be try to be kind of fair with him. I could hold his feet to the fire and don't be fair. What fun is that come on now, I was saying to where was reporting week one. He was sure we all were weak too. You know, he had a plus matchup with Donald Smith, not. Not very good for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he was a ghost and and we gave him a pass because the Fitzpatrick got rid of the ball and an average of two point two seconds. He was a, you know, on his third step in his first hitch and the ball was out seventy one percent of the time by my charting. So hard situation for him to get to the quarterback. They still got the quarterback thirty eight percent of the time. A lot of that was Blecher Cox, but Barnett still was a ghost for that game in run game. He played really well against the buccaneers wanna make that clear. One thing that Eric Barnett has always been is absolutely clutch and goes from college too. And we know it comes up with the strip sack in the NFC championship game recovers the fumble in the Super Bowl, those same type of situations that he's come up, big for the eagles of the same type of situations that he came up big for the volunteers in college. So he tends to to show up the situations that's never been his problem. His problem has been, he has not beaten us a solid tackle cleanly, and you know he's trying different moves and he's trying these spin moves and whatnot, and in a never come off, right? This is the week that we said with Anthony Costanzo out at left. Hackel LeBron Clark, you know, supplanting him out there who's a subpar talent. We needed to see something from Derek Barnett and boy, thank goodness. It came at the game. So he had he had to half a sack on a nice speed to power. Got a nice bull, rush and got that half the sack with Fletcher. Cox was still awesome. By the way, love ultra Knox had another great game. He's been excellent all season, but then it's events player the year man. Oh, he wants a bad. Yeah, he's really working towards. You looks awesome. But, yeah, I mean situation, he beats Reverend Clark clean, good anticipation on the snap gets that first step and as able to bend around that corner and just trips up. Andrew luck enough. So big time shout out to Derrick Barnett. I know a lot of people were asking me 'cause we said on the show if they're cornet got a sack Benjamin so lack would by Derek Barnett jersey. People are forgetting that we set a spin sex at something he really wants to hit that was not a spin sacks, no, no jersey for Benjamin select, but still suck at Benjamin select because Dr. Barnett showed up in a big time situation so he couldn't couldn't be more happier for them. Maybe he should get a sure z. you know, maybe we can kind of go have here, make him get assures e or something like that. Yeah. The big thing about the defense today was not so much. You know that they didn't really give up much of anything long. Andrew luck twenty five of forty only one hundred sixty four yards. Andrew luck with one touchdown. Certainly the yards per attempt there. I didn't look that number up, but that's not that's not terribly good. I could do the division with a pen and paper, but they kept TY Hilton. Check a week after Sean Jackson and OJ Howard, burn them for big games. The tackling was a lot better in this game. They didn't really let anybody get them. Deep Jalen mills, of course, got called for a pass interference on a on a long play. But I mean, you just kind of have to bake that into the cake when it comes to Jalen mills, he's he's gonna, get beat on a double move, or he's going to get along interference, call every week, no matter what. But what you see with this team and it's really amazing, especially at home with when they're when they're at home and they're backed up inside. Side, the twenty, and they use that goal line like it's a brick wall, Michael. I mean, they, they backed up to that thing and they just they don't allow teams to convert red zone opportunities for touchdowns, and they got really hamstrung with a couple of short fields. Thanks to a Carson interception and a fumble that they lost and the defense came through and held Indianapolis to feel goals each time that was the game. Really. That's the key to this game. They were able to keep Andrew luck out of the end zone and we saw Jalen mills, make a terrific play on the end zone in the end zone breaking up a pass for Ibran bronze. So this was a game in which the eagles defense again bend, but don't break. They don't get in receivers faces, but when when opposing offenses run out of real estate, the eagles defense is at their best. Yeah, it's interesting too, because the entire landscape of this game changes there were those three drives back to back to back where they were in the red zone on the I, two of them just a Rogers had to. Plays where he could haul in two touchdowns of those two different drives, and he doesn't. And that's an eight point swing. And that changes the score from a potential, the thirteen to ten and at four points on both of those drives for the touchdown. You're at twenty one ten colts as you go into the fourth quarter, that's an entirely different ballgame and moving the ball down down the field on the colts is gonna take time like we talked about with the way that they play their defense or was that he dropped those. But on the third on the third one and all the other plays around that the defense showed out and Sidney Jones showed up big time in that situation as well too big plays for him back to back. He has been playing, absolutely lights out. I'm sure there's going be calls for him than people want him to replace Jalen those on the outside. I think the eagles showed again today when Ronald Darby went down in week one, it was Russell coming into play outside. When Jalen mills went down a for a couple of plays in this game. It was received again playing the outside. Think that's more likely to for them to try out rather than move Sydney from plus six. Situation where he's killing it. But yeah, him the red zone defense itself has won two games this year for the Philadelphia Eagles. Jim Schwartz has got to be feeling himself. He needed that after the loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers more impressive for me just from an overall perspective, and we talk about what was the plan for Schwartz last week against the bucks. Because in my opinion it wasn't a good one, but this week against the Indianapolis Colts they did with needed to do they added more underneath zones because they knew that was going to get rid of the ball quick. It's quick hitting west coast style system that they have there. They added more underneath zones. They took away and muddied that I read, they were mugging and sugaring blitzes and dropping out and and making him come off and and whatnot. And I thought it was. I thought it was an impressive game plan that was very effective for the most part outside of a couple of big plays. The even had it in there were on the Andrew lucked scramble where he was able to get thirty three yards. That was that was a good play by the eagles and they saw something pre snap to where all the sudden everyone's jumping up and down in audibly to a bliss because they. I saw something that they liked, and Jim Schwartz trusted his defense to audible into like a big full out blitz at at that situation. So that was pretty cool to see him having that flexibility and saying, if you see this, then go ahead and send the dogs. So I like that mentality. But yeah, a big time performance for the defense. They only allow sixteen points. You can win any game, or the defense only allowed sixteen points in its in its critical as we get once back and acclimated and feeling like himself that the defense shows up like that. And this eagles defence at home as just is just awesome. Overall, in my have a couple blips here and there. But the overall picture is Sonny. I know we talked about this a little bit with with Brandon on the preview show, but any. I mean, and you tell you and Benjamin talked about it a little bit, but you know, what is the deal with the home road splits with the defense? I mean, it really is remarkable the we didn't see the defensive line, get a ton of pressure all game long. But like I said, when they got when when the colts got far enough, obviously the red zone defense stepped it up. But you know, they weren't able to do that last week against the buccaneers a couple of different times when they got inside the red zone. I just don't know what it is is, you know, is it crowd noise? I mean, 'cause I didn't see the the crowd was not exactly at full throat here in this game against the colts either. I can't put my finger on it. Yeah, I think it helps the pass rush because you guys like Derek Barnes and Michael, Michael Bennett who are known to key in on cadences throughout the game and really time there blitzes to get an advantage. So there's that part of it. Other than that, outside of that, I just, I don't. I don't get it and they, they asked him swertz about it in his press press conference. And he was like, I don't know. It helps the pass kind of off, but. I don't know if it helps anything else. I don't think getting on a plane changes anything. So super weird. It's it's like this phenomena that no one can really put their finger on, but outside of the pass rush, I don't. I don't really think it affects anything. Maybe it was just weird that we ran up against a an offense, Tampa Bay that is performing like it is. And maybe if you go through that that small sample sizes, things Schwartz, said he goes overall. When you look at it, you know it's kind of a small sample size to extract some conclusions from. So maybe we'll see it maybe regressed to the mean as we continue through the season. I mean, I hope it does for for the away defense because it's been, you know, pretty pretty scattershot. So that'll be something detract still. And if it continues to happen, then you know, we'll definitely have more questions for for Mr. short-sea what we're still waiting for the eagles team to play a really clean even game here. So far, three pretty ugly games, uneven games. But at two one record is is what you want. But let me just real quick. Let's talk about the penalties because another ten penalties called against the eagles for one hundred ten yards. They now have twenty seven penalties called for to sixty six after three games. And this is a team that is usually pretty disciplined. I mean, this is not. This is not a team that I don't think last year was. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I don't. I don't remember this team being heavily penalised last year, but and I know the league is calling a few more things now than they were last year. But can you put your finger on the penalties? Is this just kind of because the eagles are lacking some some stability, some important positions, like running back wide receiver and it's maybe fouling timing up on the lines or is it just a lack of attention to detail what's what's going on here? Yeah. I mean, you could you could put some of it on some guys playing in positions that they normally wouldn't in some situations that normally wouldn't also remember, you know, they've been into really close games and another game where they were trying to catch up. So some guys are trying to make plays, and you know doing some things that they normally wouldn't do. That's outside of the discipline that they've been. They've been coached, I'm sure it's going to be a focus for Doug Peterson moving forward. At the end of the day, you know, you win and ugly. I'm like that, and you can kind of let it slide because the result is there, but you can't just keep playing Russian roulette like that. We got his stopped shooting ourselves in the foot because it's it's just not sustainable. So yeah, I mean, you need some luck, but don't don't put yourself in a situation where you continually kill yourself on those drives. Because like I said, against the coast drives needed to be long, they needed to execute on every play, continue to move the ball, and some of them were just killed by by lack of discipline. One of the great things about Carson Wentz though, and his ability to convert third and longs as that he makes up for some of those -fensive penalties. You know, when when when the offensive line is called for a holding, there's an illegal hands to the face or something like that. A lot of times Carson himself can make that up and it's that's, that's really where a lot of his value comes is he covers up for so many mistakes, and a lot of those are penalties that are called on his offense of teammate. So one last thing before we before we finish up here, Michael, looking around the NFC it was kind of a rough day for a bunch of team. We saw the saints beat the falcons forty three thirty seven, but I don't know if you saw the end of that game. The falcons had a touchdown lead over the saints and drew Brees was was running trying to buy time running to the outside. And as he's running toward the left's toward the far sideline was met by by two falcons Clair's and some. Pulled off a spin move outta his rear end. I don't know how he did it. Diving into the end zone. The saints went onto to win the game, Ryan and breeze might for ten touchdowns in that game for crying about the saints, moved to two and one falcons one and two. The Panthers beat the Bengals in a real good match up by ten, the giants beat the Texans twenty seven, twenty two down in Houston. Texans, where my pick to win the AFC south. They're Owen three. Now giants at one and two. We saw the Niners adult a tough blow here on Sunday. Jimmy Garoppolo not only did they lose to the chiefs, but Garoppolo carted off has an ACL tear looks like he's going to be out for the season and then game. I had to watch a lot of here living in northern Virginia was Washington, actually, spanking Green Bay was not even close Washington dominated the Green Bay Packers in a rainy field at at FedEx. So you got the Vikings get and the Vikings got hammered by the bills bills. So all of these teams in the NFC we came into the season thinking men. There's a lot. Juggernauts here, but I'm not. I'm not so sure that some of these teams aren't coming back to the pack a little bit. Certainly here early, some of the results are mixed. I'll try to keep all these games in my head as I run down this list. But number one on Derek par net could use some use use us some tips from drew Brees on the spin. Yeah, number l. and enter the saints. Defense is terrible. Aspen, Raleigh, wow, all year. And it's very surprising, but not really surprising if you lose the quarterbacks they played during their hot stretch from, I believe, week three to week ten last year. And then they went back to a little bit of their struggling ways and started to get leaky again. But if you saw the list of quarterbacks that they played, it wasn't good. So maybe they're a bit of a paper tiger that something to to watch number two, terrible for Jimmy g. that's awful. Yeah. You never wanna see that you and in a league that needs quarterbacks and quality quarterbacks and guys like patched Mahomes who just said a NFL record for throwing thirteen touchdowns in his first three games. I it unique guys like that in the NFL to to make an exciting product. I don't care if they're, you know, an opposing and of c team or not as absolutely awful. And you know, you get another wasted year where call Shanahan is unable to make a difference in the NFL most likely cause at that's fun. If you start to get him in the mix, that's just good football. So awful to see. You hate to see it. The Minnesota Vikings had one less yard than the Buffalo Bills had points by the half, twenty seven and nothing. They had twenty six yards of offense. They didn't get to the red zone. I believe until the fourth quarter the Vikings did. So you know, their offense of line is not good, not many people were talking about me and Ben kind of talked about in the Aussies. They're starting to lose some guys. They're starting to have to trade for guys like Brett Jones was backup center for the giants, and it might not be so good for them in that defense has got torched by Josh Allen. Nobody saw that coming whatsoever. Not even a big, Josh Allen fan, but kudos to him. Yeah, his hurdles. Thank you, Josh, Allen. Thanks for the help. But yeah, then you look around to the Washington Redskins weak one. They were competent against the Zona cardinals and took care of business good for them week two. There were absolute, no show like we talked about the hit the wrong game plan against the colts in it, stifled their offense, and they weren't able to do anything just a complete no-show. And then week three, they come out, lay the woods, the Green Bay Packers and and beat up on them a little bit. So I if I'm looking at it contender than it's probably them, I don't care about the giants beat the Texas. The Texans just don't look like the football team overall right now Watson still working on back, work himself back from that injury. He'll be fine down the road, same same as Carson Wentz. But yeah, I mean, you know, Watson doesn't have the defense that we have here in Philly, especially at home, so they're gonna struggle bit. And then I did see bright before we started recording that the the Dallas Cowboys replaying the Seattle Seahawks zero zero. And Earl, Thomas recovered a fumble that was actually an interception. So they are definitely salty about that in Dallas guy that they obviously wanted to trade for Earl, Thomas. A big play on. So we'll continue to watch those games kinda recording the middle of the four o'clock games, and I'm sure we'll be talking about it tomorrow. But yeah, fun stuff around the NFC. Maybe it's not the the bloodbath that everybody -ticipant well, it's the same way, and I say this every time the eagles schedule comes out and team start looking ahead at the schedule for that year, and people start getting worried about individual teams. I think when you're looking at a schedule look at, okay, how when how many short weeks does the team have? How many cross country flights do they have? Those things are things that you can look at. But if you're looking at the individual teams that I mean when when you looked at the scheduled to start last year, you saw that Denver game at home and you thought that's gonna be a tough game to turn out to be the case. I mean, there's lots of games you saw the Rams game on your schedule in LA. Think that's easy. Didn't turn out to be the case. Always happens in the NFL teams that you think aren't going to be good at the start of the season. Some of them turn out to be excellent. And some teams you think are gonna be really good. Turn out, not to be just kinda left to let the schedule play out the way it's going to play out. Oh, speaking of which before we go, the team we play next. Tennessee titans played without played with and without I believe Marcus mariota. I wasn't even really paying attention, but they beat the, they beat the Jaguars Jaguars for a darling for a lot of people after they beat the patriots last week. So the NFL is a a helter skelter business and consistency LT wins the day this the eagles gotta clean up. Some of these sloppy issues that they have. You are right. The titans did beat the Jaguars bet. I'm not. I don't know how impressive I call it nine six two game. And yes. Mariota twelve eighteen for one hundred yards and Blaine gabbert had three pass attempts for reasons passing understanding the freight yards. I don't know. Maybe mariota went out for a little bit in that game, but I think I'd Gabbard got hurt in mariota came in and then they just went like real run heavy because of the issue is that Marietta. They were waiting for him to get feeling back in his hand, which has never. She was, yeah. Well, so bad. They're playing the low score. There. It was well, listen, not eagles win this one. Twenty two sixteen move to two and one on the season. Michael. Any final thoughts before we wrap up the recap addition, BGN radio Yemen, just happy to be two in one right now with everything going on with this team. You know the potential Super Bowl hangover that they could've gone through. They had to really, really close wins, and then a close when are close loss that they call themselves back into after going down early, the seem as mentally tough and their Bill to win these types of games. They've been there done that, which is good. A lot of things run the NFL that have that losing culture don't quite know how to win. These close games would have dropped both of those games. So as many concerns we have about the eagles as many injury issues that we're dealing with right now where we're going to get over those things, we're going to get better. Carson Wentz going to get better as season goes along. And and right now we've got a winning winning percentage. So you know, you can't really. You can't really fault too much there, and I am happy that we're, we're getting teams like the Colton titans here during the stretch winter. We're missing alshon Jeffery, Jay. And I know everybody's hoping that at least one, if not, both of those guys is ready to go in week four against the titans that will do it for this edition of BGN radio. Thanks to to Michael kissed again, follow Michael on Twitter at Michael kissed NFL and you can follow me on Twitter at John. Stolnis. Thanks everybody for tuning in.

All of the podcast can be found of course over at Ross Tucker dot com or you can follow official twitter handle on on Instagram as well at our T. F. podcast Joe. Let's start with the New York jets. I think John Bell L.. We believe recording this two thirty. PM Eastern on Tuesday is going to play football instead of Boll on Thursday night night as the jets. Take on the Baltimore Ravens. Well I think. Ross when the jets signed on Bell they did have the The the idea that they were going to go bowling this year. I don't think that was the bowl. They had in mind. If you allow me to get an incredibly stupid joke out of the way I this is a really bad matchup across the board for the jets. Sam Darnold was all right last week in a pretty good match up But he's got the ravens events in the steelers the next two weeks. I do not like Sam Darnold in this one Robbie Anderson's been Kinda hot His He's been the leading receiver over the last couple week. Seventeen fantasy points in eighty five plus yards in three straight games however the Ravens. Just shut down. John Brown Jamison crowder has just seven catches over his his last three games. And you'll probably get Marlon Humphrey out of the slot this week Ryan Griffin has an ankle injury With him unlikely to play maybe Jamison crowder gets a few more targets however this is eighteen with the exception of John Bell. I really am completely the bailing from this week. A week. Fifteen we have to narrow our fantasy tree and the jets are a team with the exception of Bell. WHO's a low end rb to? I am completely ignoring this week. Okay what about the other side. The Baltimore Ravens all systems go for the Baltimore Ravens. We mentioned this every week. They're kind of a narrow fantasy. Hennessy team you play Lamar Jackson every week. You play Mark Ingram. Every week the one thing I will say. Hollywood brown has negative receiving yards on four catches over the last two games They are not getting him downfield shots at all however the jets are a defense that he can exploit so I think this is a bounceback spot for Hollywood Brown. I wouldn't mind playing well. Obviously it's the one game or the Thursday to Monday. DFS Late. But I wouldn't mind playing him on that slate because I really like like this matchup for him and the other thing. We need to point out. If you've been rolling with Mark Andrews at the tight end position. He is unlikely to play in this game. He apparently has a a deep bruise Between his thigh and his knee. It doesn't seem like it's a serious injury but I bet it hurts like hell which is why I doubt he's is going to be able to go on the short week as we saw last week. Though if you're desperate for a tight end I don't think you can do. I mean I think you can do a whole lot a lot worse than just picking up Hayden hearst and plugging him into the Mark Andrews spot. I think for one one or two weeks Hayden hearse who was actually drafted ahead of mark. Andrus druce can probably do a reasonable Mark Andrews Facsimile and he can get you a similar production. We saw with the sixty one yard touchdown last week against Buffalo Hayden. I would be a guy that I think you can pick up and start them this week if you really need a tight end especially if you if you lost Mark Andrews Patriots bengals Sunday Sunday. One o'clock patriots basically can only move the football joe through trick plays and they worked against the eagles. It worked it A couple of weeks ago last week. But it's really a an abomination and Ross. Maybe that's why they were trying to get an advantage because you know in order to beat a one in twelve team you gotTa make sure your film their sidelines. We'll see what comes of that but this is a list is really bad for the Patriots sorting Michelle droppable right now at five carries for eight eight yards last week. He is a worse version of Ronald Jones for fantasy. You essentially are guessing. If he's GonNa score touchdown that's not the way to get it done a for the Patriots. The two guys. I feel good about joining Ataman who you play every week. I'm he has thirteen or more fantasy points in nine straight games. A Jarvis Landry didn't have a huge game last week out of the Slot Against Cincinnati. But eshelman gets done every week. I feel pretty good about James White. He has double digit fantasy points in ten of his twelve games. James it's not a great game script for James White but I don't care about. I can't even rely on game script when it comes to Sony. Michelle no way. Am I playing Tony. Michell with my season on the line the only three patriots to consider our Julian Edelman James White and you can stream Tom Brady this week. But that's what Tom Brady is right now he. He is extremely quarterback. This is a team that has a major major offensive deficiency and keep in mind the bengals really just shutdown down Baker. Mayfield cost me a quarter final match up in one of my leagues. It is unbelievable to me. That's where we are with the Patriots. I don't know what happened to Tony. Michelle L.. It's it's crazy. What about the bengals on the other side Joe Mixon had today Joe Mixon? I've been saying that on the pockets last couple of weeks I'm GonNa get so much Joe Mixing in the second and third rounds next year because he is really a to borrow once again from two partial or the rose that grew from concrete here. He manages his to take this situation. And despite what's around him has managed to elevate his game he's been legitimate league winner over the last few weeks wchs and it looked like early in the season that the situation was just gonNA completely bog down over the last five weeks. There is one running back who has more touches than Joe Mixing. That's Christian McCaffrey. That's it he's the only running back over the last five weeks with more touches And Andy Dalton Alton has given this offense a little bit of life on tate is out for the rest of the season up but John. Ross he's going to go out and play. Probably more than the forty nine percent of the Nazi Nazi played last week. Tyler Boyd unfortunately gets the really tough match-up is going to be Jesse. Jackson is going to be a Stefan Gilmore on Tyler. Oh boy I think boy is a wide receiver three. Unfortunately even though I'm excited to see John Ross I don't think you can play 'em here given the Patriots a unbelievable unbelievable perimeter defenders and certainly not Andy Dalton so really in this game we have three guys for the Patriots willing to consider and really just two guys for the bengals. That being Joe. Mixon and Tyler Boyd. Joe Makes it a lock your lineup Tyler Boyd. Probably A is one of your best receivers. But if he's not a SLAM DUNK I. I wouldn't be shocked. If you find yourself. benching him. This week is Dolan the streamer not against the Patriots. I'm not against the Patriots. Now I mean he's he's Kinda raised the ceiling and the floor of this offense but I don't trust him against the Patriots. Now Bucks Lines talked to me about the James Coaster. Well James Coaster now has a a little bit of the bend in the tracks. Because he's dealing with that thumb injury and apparently it's a weird injury that isn't really going to affect even though it's on his throwing hand it's not going. We knew affect him throwing the football too much. But he's got a throwing hand broken thumb thumb spring. Something going on there but last week you you solve the ultimate James Winston performance. He is the only cornerback in fantasy. Football who I would start on my team while also also starting a defense against him. He throws for four hundred fifty yards and four touchdowns but also threw three interceptions including pick six. If you start at both Janus end the colts defense last week. You were happy with it. He is the only quarterback and fantasy football. You can do that with its incredible. Unfortunately though his ceiling is significantly vacantly lowered with the loss of Mike Evans. Who came up? Lame on a sixty one yard touchdown last week against Indianapolis and he's going to be out for the season most likely so the bucks now are going GonNa be operating with Chris Godwin. You'RE GONNA have paramount on the outside youngster. By the name of Justin Watson got a touchdown a guy who had been getting a lot more snaps APPs Before he had a hamstring. Injury was a Scotty Miller the rookie at Bowling Green. Who many compared to Andy Isabella coming out? Because he has very similar Athletic traits. So maybe he's somebody to look at Brad Pyramid. I consider kind of a low end wide receiver three here. Because I don't necessarily trust him. Chris Godman you just have have to presume. He's going to be peppered with targets whether he's playing out of the slot or outside if he's playing outside. I expect the Darius Slay treatment. I think the bucks'll move them inside to to avoid dairy sleigh so I think Chris Godwin is a block for double digit Targets in this game. Here's what's interesting I wonder if Oj. Howard actually is a beneficiary? Vieri of the Mike Evans injury. Because he's played eighty three percent of the snaps of the last two weeks. It's really been as best two game. Stretch on his target. Share is not high. I I wonder if that goes up without Mike Evans. So I'm looking at Janus as a low end quarterback one here because no Evans really hurts. I'm looking at Chris. Godwin is a slam dunk doc. Wide Receiver One. I think you can stream. OJ Howard at tight end he's also DFS option for shod Perriman wide receiver four flex in a deeper league. What I really want to see how they use him before anything and to be completely honest? Utterly hate this backfield. I do not like a taking a shot on Ronald Jones. But he is the only one you can try here and you hope he scores a touchdown on the other side. The lions the David Blau lead lions. It's ugly The only two Detroit lions. I can consider right now or Kenny. Golladay more of Jones and you hope they get in the end zone as Golladay did last week in utter garbage time. The lions were. Shut out for most of that game. They're the only two guys you can consider TJ Hodgkinson's on. I R Danny Amendola has been ghost the run the game has been okay. Both scarborough got dinged up though and the bucks run defense has been phenomenal this year. Marlin Max scored a touchdown last week and still didn't reach each ten fantasy points so it's really tough spot for anybody anybody on the Lions frankly but I do expect Kenny Golladay. Marva Jones will be able to get open against this secondary. I like both of them as wide receiver threes only. Because I don't trust their quarterback you can take a shot on him in the defense tournament as well. Those are the only two guys worth considering during the one thing you do have to point out. Detroit Kerryon Johnson is eligible to come off of. I are in week sixteen. I have a hard time imagining a team. That's playing for a championship in week. Sixteen that is going to start a carry on Johnson if alliance even activate them but it would be a mistake of. I didn't mention that. So Bo scarborough scarborough his days of relevance I believe or over because I hate this matchup for him he got dinged up and carry on. Johnson is eligible to come off of our next week. Mhm All right. What about Texans Titan start with the Texans Joe What no-show by Houston last week. I mean I the love of God. I mean. The defense was atrocious. The Shawn Watson was atrocious for For a number for at least he came through for fantasy. Because he threw a touchdown pass and ran for two you but it was not a good game. How about this stat and you you know? This is why we talk about the importance of supporting cast for quarterbacks. I don't care if it's a bad quarterback back You know playing a few games. Because the starters injured. I don't care. If a quarterback who's viewed as a leat or at least it's viewed as very good or like a guy like Patrick Mahomes or to Shawn Watson Carson Wentz. This is why supporting cast is so important because sometimes guys can't do it all by themselves in four games without will fuller this year to Shawn Watson is averaging six point four yards per attempt in the games that will fuller has has played. He's averaging eight point six yards per attempt so we'll four has played. Nine Games Shawn Watson has eighteen touchdowns in those games in the four four games without him he has just six touchdown passes so we'll four is the key to unlocking this offense. He just he commands extra attention. He he makes it look like the Texans are playing on a bigger football field. Every Rossi were at the eagles giant's game last night everything that the eagles do looks restricted bricked. Because they don't have any speed the Texans even though they have. Kenny Stills Deandre Hopkins. It's similar when will fuller is out there. Because he just he's just a different the cat and somebody that the Shawn Watson Trust so to Shawn Watson a lot of his fantasy potential in this game hinges on the availability of will fuller and as we saw last week. A tough defense like Denver was able to really take advantage of that unfortunately for Deshaun. He's facing another tough defense. This week against Tennessee not a spectacular matchup for him by any stretch of the imagination. So keep an eye on willful or status. It's very very important to what does Shawn is going to do in this game. It is actually his first game this year against the titans. They have not played yet this year. So we don't even have that to look back at so I think the Sean probably W can consider him as a top. Five quarterback will fuller place more on the lower end if he doesn't play as those numbers out On the other side the titans offense has been absolutely red Hot. It's unbelievable Tannehill. Dan Hill deserves a lot of credit. I think Sodas Arthur Smith their offensive coordinator and nobody talks about him for some reason. What do you think about this game? Well this is a good match up because because I mean look at the Houston Texans just got shredded by drew lock and they got shredded by drew. Lock at home okay. I mean that's really really bad news for for Houston the good news about the titans. We love there's three guys you can consider. Derrick Henry is in your lineup. Each and every week. We don't have to talk about him. He's been a last four games. He's he's averaging seven yards per carry. That's college numbers. Okay I I mean. That's that's ridiculous so you know he's in there. I think Tan hills in their the the only quarterback. They're back ahead of. This is unbelievable. The only quarterback ahead of Ryan Tannehill since Ryan Tannehill. I start in week. Seven is Lamar Lamar Jackson. That's it Ryan Hill's been the second best fantasy quarterback he's averaging nine point eight yards per attempt. Look it's been an extremely efficient in passing offense. Tannehill can run. But he doesn't he obviously can't run like Lamar Jackson. Ken and that helps raises floor a little bit at some point. You feel like this. This efficiency attack is going to slow down for Tennessee. However I don't see it happening this week against Houston I I just don't see it happening? Ryan tannehill passer rating has been over a hundred in six of his seven starts. It's ridiculous what he's doing right now. He I am starting starting Ryan Tannehill. I am starting Derrick Henry and as I said last week I made a mistake. I said I thought the titans receivers were empty depth. I still don't necessarily trust. Aj Brown but his upside is too high to drop him to the waiver wire. He is a high upside low-floor wide receiver. Three Corey Davis. You can drop. I'm totally competent. Saying that if he scores It's a fluke. But that's about it right now for the titans. But those three guys especially Tannehill and Henry are league-winning league-winning type of fantasy assets. And I loved Hannah Hills matchup this week against Houston Joe. Let's talk about drew. Lock and the Denver Broncos drew locks got an arm on him doesn't he fire. The ball did. Did you watch that game. Yes well as well as the red zone so yeah I mean Denver's can have predicament here because drew lock is GonNa if he continues to look Anything like he looked in that game and I'm not expecting him to go to throw five incompletions and throw for three hundred yards every week but they should give him a shot to be starting quarterback heading in the next year. I mean five touchdowns and two interceptions on just fifty five. Asa Temps I mean the the touchdown touchdown rate is nine point one percent right now. That's significant. That's huge. If I mean that's league-leading type numbers. If drew lock qualified for the passing title you would expect the efficiency to go down but Kansas City. They're gonNA need to score. I do expect Steve Spagnolo to bring a lot of blitzes. He was very comfortable blitzing. Tom Brady last week. So I would expect Beck Spagnolo to bring a lot of blitz against drew walk but if you are dying at quarterback. I don't trust them but I do think he's streaming on on this spot that being said I also think. Kansas City's defense against a rookie quarterback with that gunslingers mentality I wouldn't be surprised if there's a pick six thrown in this game so I kind of look at it. Both ways Cortlandt Sutton is in my lineup. The one thing that would significantly lower both the floor and the ceiling for drew lock is if Noah Fan who got banged up in the At at the end of the game last week it can't play because this guy. Ross he looks special to me he he was one of my most drafted best ball all tight ends and he is really paid off here over the last month. Plus coming up with some of those huge games. I point out his forty eight yard reception against the Texans last week. It was an out pattern that drew lock put on the money. But Noah Fan realized while gathering that out pattern that the Texans had completely blown the coverage. There was nobody near him. So nobody for a rookie receiver. I don't think anybody would have freaked out if no fan took the fifteen yard completion. That the out pattern was supposed post to be went out of bounds. They moved the chains and lived to fight another day instead he catches the ball realize what had happened with the Texans blowing the coverage rebe rebe gathers himself stops his feet terms up field and picks up another thirty arps. It was a really mature play by a super good athlete. Many of whom thought was a raw. Aw Prospect coming out of Iowa. Because he just wasn't used as much as as some of the other prospects in the draft class. He's he's looking like a guy who's going to be going in the single digit rounds next year for fantasy but without him it would be a big loss for drew lock in Denver and I probably would shy away from streaming drew. Lock if no fan doesn't play on the other side you've got the Kansas City chiefs who offensively haven't been as dynamic as they were before Joe now and this is why why we say every year when a guy has a record setting. MVP performance Sin- maybe maybe it's being cynical. It's just being realistic. You take the under now Patrick. uh-huh has always had a loose element to his game this year to seems to be biting him in the but a little bit more. Their offense is doesn't Seem to be as well oiled machine and I wonder wonder how much that has to do with the loss of Kareem Hunt and the loss of Damian Williams because those two guys just were so effective in the passing game and they are struggling struggling to get that. I'll give you a perfect example of how the chiefs don't trust the Shawn McCoy right now or Darwin Thompson for that Matter Damian Williams Williams obviously Daryl Williams both injured they starting spencer wear off the street. The dude was eating cream puffs on his couch last week. And and he will lead the chiefs backfield snaps in week in week. Fourteen against Patriots. That tells you how little the Kansas City Chiefs Trust Lesean McCoy in Darwin Thompson. Those guys are flex options. I am talking at best on a little more optimistic Damian Williams plays because I think the chiefs are going going to realize we need Damian Williams. He was the key to unlocking. Will he was the reason. The Kareem Hunt loss didn't hurt them as much last year because he just gave them that two way they kind of ability they have not gotten that from McCoy Darwin Thomson. I think I saw more out of Darwin Thompson than I did. Out of McCoy which is why I prefer him. But I really Damian Williams does not play I want to stay away from this backfield entirely and then there's really two more guys to talk about. It's it's tyreek Hill and and it's Travis Kelsey. Both of whom are definitely in your lineups. I don't trust Sammy Watkins Sammy. Watkins didn't get it done last week. When you knew the Patriots were going to scheme to take tyreek Hill bill out of the Game Sammy? Watkins has not top ten fantasy points since week number nine. He's top ten fantasy points in just one of his his last eight games. You can't trust him. It's tyreek Hill. Mahomes and Travis Kelsey and then maybe Damian Williams that he plays up next. We've got the dolphins at the giants. I mean pretty clearly Jason. Sanders is a league winner and everybody needs to have him as their flex kicker. Yeah how about this He kicks what seven field goals against the jets last week. And he scored a touchdown the week before we seen that. This is actually actually sneaky. Fantasy game here. The total is forty eight. It's the fourth highest line game on the board right now and I think what what people see defenses. That can't stop anybody. The question I have is Ryan Fitzpatrick. Unfortunately for me I thought last week against the jets was a great streaming spot. He lost devante Parker early. Early in the game to a concussion so as devante Parker GonNA play Isaiah Ford came in and did a solid job. Alan hearns did an all right job. Unfortunately Albert Wilson is an also left for the concussion protocol so breakdown. This dolphins pass offense. We really need updates on those two receivers really the only guy I feel good about is Devante Parker. If he plays I think you could take a shot on Alan hearns. If devante Parker doesn't play That would be the guy I would go with against this giant Secondary But right right now I think the guy who's going to benefit a lot is patrick. Layered the young running back got a cow the undrafted rookie. Who I know? We brought them up a couple of weeks ago when and I thought he earned more snaps because Kaelin Balaj was so bad. Well now with Balaj on. I R A layered plate over eighty percent of the snaps last week against the jets and he's caught taught eight of his ten targets for eighty one yards in the last two games against the jets in Philadelphia. I think this guy is a solid rb to NPR I don't trust them as much non. Pr because he hasn't been getting it done as a runner. He's averaging two point seven yards per carry on the on the year but NPR nine nine point two yards per reception. He's sixteen of his nineteen targets. This season Patrick Layer would be the biggest beneficiary if devante Parker and Albert Wilson cannot play in this game. It is always amazing to me when we get to this point in the year and it's playoff semi finals for a lot of people. And and you know we're talking about Patrick Laird who I had never heard of when the season started. I say every week in August say you know we can do all the preseason analysis ALICEA sweet want but it is an auditor one billion percent guarantee. You're going to be talking about guys who who are going to be in your playoff lineups lineups that not that not that you haven't considered but that you've never heard of. I mean. I want a championship last year. Elisha McGuire was in my lineup. Day Sean Hamilton. Hamilton was in my lineup. But guys that you wouldn't have even dreamed about at the beginning of the season. It happens every year that it's a stone cold fact. Outside of guys is regressive from record-setting years this is this is an even bigger certainty than that. We knew Patrick. Mahomes wasn't gonNA throw fifty touchdowns again a bigger certainty. Is this time in twenty twenty. We're going to be talking about the next. Patrick layered another guy. You never freak unheard of. Who was going to be winning you fantasy championships? That's just the way it goes and fantasy football well into went to that point Joe I would I would build upon that and I would say you know last night. I'm on the sideline of of the eagles and the giants or No. I did the eagles. PRESEASON Games on television and I said to people during the preseason is using games I said look there is one of these guys out here for the Eagles right now in the second or third quarter. This preseason game is GonNa make an important play for this team at some point in December. Guess what Joe it was all of them. It was Greg Ward. Jj Jj or go white side. Josh Perkins Boston Scott. It was like the guys that played two and a half. Three quarters of over those preseason games at the stars don't play at all that was the crew on the field for the Eagles last night in a critical December. Two Vision Monday night football game other than records and went it was the preseason crew so he I was lucky that next year when I say it on TV people whatever you just want us to watch well. Yeah I want you to watch but also it's true. I knew at least one guy would have to make a play I think of whiteside Perkins Ward and Boston. Scott would all be making plays in the same game and this is why these guys and I think it's why right that the coaches are really hesitant to let to WanNa cut down from the four preseason games which we know that's an inevitability Ross light right. I mean it's there's not going to be four preseason games in the near future but they those guys got game experience and it probably helped out and we'll talk about the eagles when we get to them but it's just the point where the next year. There's there's going to be some. You Know Sammy Sammy mic average guy. Who's going to be in the Backfield Backfield for the Houston? Texans twenty twenty. And I don't know about this guy and then all of a sudden you realize he's getting eighteen touch again. It happens every single year and Patrick Layer is is a guy who I am looking to start this week because his matchup is so good against the giants and he doesn't really fall into this. This category I guess but Daria Slayton and Joe. I have no idea why I I don't think they threw him the ball. One time in the second half I. I don't know what they were thinking king. I would've thrown at least three deep balls to Darius late in the second half if I were the giants last night well the Eagles are incredibly unique in their complete applete inability or their overwhelming ability to blow a coverage every single week. It's I mean how about the one it looked like they double team Slayton and neither Darby nor of Macleod ran with them. This guy is this guy's got some serious juice and Howie. Roseman was getting dunked on rightfully so on twitter twitter last night including by yours. Truly because he took Clayton Thorson five picks before the giants took The Guy who nearly ended well not ended the eagles season because the NFC east the so bad but nearly handed them one of the most embarrassing losses in a season. Full of them But Barry Slayton you've got to have them in your lineup against Miami terrible terrible Miami defense. This is a this is a this is a very bad defense. Just gave up over one hundred yards to alshon Jeffery and Robbie Anderson and back back weeks nobody would confuse them for Julio cajones so I- dairy Slayton's in your lineup. I like shepherd I like Golden Tate. A we'll see about Evan Ingram and you G- if somehow some way you are still alive at this point with Saquon Barkley. I know many many people who have to Saquon Barkley out of it already. You have to play against Miami. You just have to I it was. It was tough sledding and a tough match up against the Eagles last night you have to play him against Miami. And I'll be frank if Evan Ingram place ways I don't think it's a bad spot the Stream Eli manning now for one half. He looked really good against the eagles and then eagles managed to hold them to under thirty yards towards in the second. Half but Miami's defense is not good at all. It's not the worst spot. If you're dying for instance I would rather play ally manning In in this spot than drew lock. If Noah Fan doesn't play so that I mean that's on the lower end of quarterback options. Those are in the twenties of thirty two quarterbacks this week but just to give you an example of why. I don't think it's a dead spot for Eli presuming game. Jones doesn't apply. Of course. Then you get to. The Eagles aforementioned eagles and the redskins sounds like alshon. Jeffery is out for a while. Sound Lane Johnson's out for this week. What are you doing with miles? Sanders Boston Scott. I don't know there's a receiver you can even think about. I don't know if there is one you can think about now. It's terrible arable secondary But I'm not playing any of these receivers out I mean. Obviously you're playing soccer. It's I mean you play hurts every week and acting he can take a shot on gutter. Who's been kind of a disappointment waiting for the eagles this year? Even though we made the big play I think the giants move the coverage on that play a late in the fourth quarter against the Eagles I'm I don't trust Wentz either and this is nothing often. You know against Wentz personally but I mean this eagle offense is like pulling teeth. You watch that and Ross I mean we can we can write our separate football narratives tips from our fantasy narratives I think Carson Wentz needed that game. Last night he needed it and I thought he was. Brilliant in the second half and overtime. But you're still looking at a stat line. Where yeah? He threw for three hundred plus in two touchdowns but he averaged fifty pass attempts. They don't have anybody can get down field they don't I mean The the the longest pass play in the air for the eagles was like the one got it where the giants completely blew the coverage and then he had a couple of irks. The one where Erz like bizarrely tried to cut up field it was. I mean this eagle offense is painful to watch at this point and the game is lined right now at forty and a half points. It is the tied for the second lowest line game of the week so I think the markets are understanding not only did eagles not have a whole lot offensively. The the Redskins have been really ugly and things up the last couple of weeks ago. They nearly pulled one out against Aaron Rodgers and the boys last week so in landover. Who knows what the weather's going to be like? It was a bomb in Philly last night. But it's it's in Washington for this one. I think the markets are expecting this game to be ugly up so it's earth's for me. Maybe got her when when it comes to sanders and Scott we also have to see what the status Jordan Howard is. He's been questionable for like eight straight weeks now with that single hasn't been cleared for contact yet so it's really a a situation where we've got to take a look because I think the eagles will run the ball a lot of Jordan Howard back I find it hard to say. I'M GONNA Trust Boston Scott but there was one thing he did that. Very few eagles have had this year. Rossi can run and that is a really important thing. He gave them probably what they expected. Darren sproles would give them this year. That was an important game for him. I thought he played really well L.. When's his trust in these guys? They're taking advantage of the opportunities but for fantasy not a whole lot. I want to trust this week against a against a Washington team. That's really started to ugly things up. Defensively Darius guys is out for the game. We already know that. Joe What does it mean for the redskins other than Terry maclaurin. Whose unbelievable while Terry McLaren? I think you look to the fact that his coming out party was in week one against Philadelphia. Now that was with case case keenum at quarterback but after we saw dairy slate and did last night with Eli Manning and you saw what Devante Parker did and he saw. All of these guys have been doing all year. I think you start Terry McLaren in this game whether or not you believe in in Dwayne askins. I think the upsides to hide the problem is I think is a terrible matchup. For Adrian Peterson on the ground. The only other redskin I consider are outside. McLaren is maybe Chris Thompson. WHO's receiving back? Who led the backfield and snaps? But I think it's McLaren or bus for me this week. Next game is hawks at the Panthers Rashad Penny torn as yell. He's done for the year. What a bomber? I mean we had him ranked in our top twenty five live over fantasy free agents dot com because it really looked like they had a nice balance of what they were doing between Carson and penny. But now it's back to the Chris Carson Show Oh and you WANNA talk DFS. Chris Carson is going to be one of the two or three highest own running backs if not the number one this week. Carolina has been an absolute loot sieve against running backs. I said last week on the show. If devante Freeman didn't get it done that week. I didn't know when he was going to get it done. Lo and behold he scores his I rushing touchdown of the Season Carolina. Looks like a team that has quit. Seattle's defense I want to go get it. I want to pick up this defense these weeks. We we need all the fantasy production we can get. You WanNa get three or four extra points wherever you can get it can get it from your defense. I love Seattle Defense Against Kyle Allen this week I like metcalf metcalf tyler lock. It's been really hurting us. And so it was Russell Wilson quite frankly but I do like all of those guys Russell. Wilson has amid the low end quarterback one. I like lock it as a wide receiver. Three at metcalf as a wide receiver. Three and I it is a slam slam dunk or be one spot for Chris Carson. This are we going to rank them in our top five and you could also consider Jacob Hollister. It's at a at tight tight end. He had a touchdown nullified by penalty last week. What about the panthers on the other side tide when they have the ball Christian McCaffrey? I know you're playing them but he's had to back to back not great weeks. Yeah I think Kyle Allen's part of the part of the story there I mean you have to suck it up up with McCaffrey and play. I'm there's nothing else you can do. I mean he does get a ton of targets so at least there's that Dj More and Curtis Sanyal dot open deep for potential touchdowns. Allen missed them. I'm last week so at least they were getting open. But more you have to play more you have to He's a wide receiver to at this point. His his his upside to hi- his floor has been pretty high sandals more of the wide receiver. Four where you play them and you just pray the Seahawks I think their secondary is not very good. But but Kyle Allen is not jared Goff and and I think that's that's been proven over and over again the one other guy who I think you can look at here take a take a look at the tight end position because Greg Olsen did not play last week with the concussion. Ian Thomas had five catches on ten targets scored a touchdown if Greg Olsen listen doesn't play. Ian Thomas is worth considering if Greg Olsen does play then Greg Olson's worth considering a look at what the rams did with tyler egg against the seahawks last week. Let's get to the last game here in part one Joe. It's the bears the bears suddenly Are Pretty Good and the bears have a a decent offense against the Green Bay packers. I can't believe I'm saying this but I know nobody's nobody's going to trust them and I don't blame you if you don't trust him but Mitchell trubisky is streaming this week over the last five weeks the over the last five weeks. Where do you think Mitchell trubisky? Ross ranks fantasy points at the quarterback position maybe eight or nine he's fifth. Wow and this is so last year this was actually the trubisky we got last here. I don't think anybody would say he had a great year last year but he was he was running a little bit he was getting it done for fantasy even with mediocre play. And I see a guy who's playing with a lot more confidence right now. I have no idea where that's come. come from I mean maybe. He heard the criticisms he for sure. He heard the criticisms but he's thrown three or more touchdowns in three of his last five games. He's added a rushing touchdown in two of his last three games. His not only did he. Top fifty rush yards against the cowboys cowboys yet. Sixty three on Thursday night last Thursday night. It was his first game of over twenty rushing yards on the season. I don't know why that hasn't been more of an element of trubisky's game seen these guys who are seeing ghosts who aren't throwing the ball well from the pocket move the pocket a little bit more. Give him an option to get outside. You know. We've been asking Philadelphia to do do that. With Carson. wentz moved the pocket. Why aren't why aren't the bears doing it more with Mitchell trubisky? It seems like they've unlock something. And the packers defense has not been great. I am totally fine with Mitchell. trubisky is a DFS quarterback if you need a streamer this week. You don't like the match up at your. Typical starter has whatever. I am. Fine going with trubisky this week Alan Robinson. He scored three straight games. He has twenty one fantasy points. In each of those games. You Start Alan Robinson. Anthony Miller had just four targets last week week but he found the end zone he scored. He has eleven plus fantasy points in four straight games. I think you can use Anthony Miller this week. He did go cashless in week. One against the packers to to be fair but that is way in the past. That's that game where the bears us. Mike Davis a whole lot just to illustrate where they are. David Montgomery has one hundred. Seventy seventy-three scrimmage yards in the last two weeks. Unfortunately he hasn't scored a rushing touchdown over that span. But I think he's playable as an rb to and I think Tariq Rick Cohen who has caught at least four passes in five straight games unfortunately doesn't have a whole lot of yards so I think you can play him in a PR so all of a sudden the bears actually have like five guys against packer. Defense that's been kind of fraudulent this year. They have five guys. I think you could consider for fancy. I don't love any of them. Except for Robinson. But I can see all five of those guys sneaking into your lineup if you have some questions about other guys on your roster on the other side what about the packers and Aaron Rodgers. Not Aaron Jones at a nice day but that was about it. Yeah Aaron Jones. I you have to plan you have to suck it up and play him. I know he had to disaster Mr Games prior to week fourteen but the upsides too high and they figured out we need to use this guy in the passing game because honestly I think he's second best receiver. I think week thirteen thirteen was an anomaly. Where we saw Allen lazard breakout of of that that slump? We're the packers outside of Davante Adams haven't had a receiver top ten fantasy fantasy points while that's now happened in just in one of the last seven weeks as a receiver not named Monty atoms. Top Ten fantasy points for the packers. So it's Aaron Jones Arron Rogers and Davante Adams but Adams I mean even he. It's been kind of. It's kind of like pulling teeth here. It's not pretty for Davante. Dante Adams A he was under ten fantasy points juicy matchup against Washington last week The bears have yet to give up twenty fantasy points to a single quarterback this year. So it's not a great matchup for Rogers. Either I think Rogers is a low end quarterback one maybe even in the quarterback to range. I think Aaron Jones you have to play them and I think Davante Adams Adams is a mid range wide receiver to if you're taking another shot on somebody. It's going to be Jimmy Graham because the bears gave up eleven catches to cowboy tight ends since last week and Jimmy Graham did score against them earlier meek one and without Roquan Smith who torres pack the matchup for I think both the running backs and tight ends becomes. It's a little bit easier for the packers. Excellent Work Joe. That was awesome. I'm ready for part number two. What else I'm ready for?

Undefeated No More

"I mean you always advocate for teams the tank. Why don't you tell the giants play saquon Barkley Tonight Wow wow really thinks that pivoting in what is I mean I needed to come and all nine it was I was about to take you seriously then I remembered it's Monday and you're stupid fantasy football teams still how we started the show so the story is fantasy football team that's probably smarter than I up Patriots Raiders Ravens Mark Jackson and the Ravens put the pads it's in a seventeen zero early thirty seven twenty seemingly legendary New England defense faces toughest testing failed yielding over two hundred yards rushing and not forcing Jackson to commit any turnovers pats offense looked pedestrian overall Pablo both teams have reached the mid point of their seasons in control of their respective divisions but did this game tell you more about the Patriots or the rape I think think it told me more about the Patriots and told me specifically that this team and this quarterback is a singularly terrible matchup for these patriots as historic as ASCII fence is now it is true the Patriots played any grade teams before this one it is true that they're hollow spot in the defense is the run game but no team in NFL history let alone the President Bowl has a team constructed around it's quarterback and it's running game like these Baltimore Ravens so I don't think they're going to see see them again unless it's you know in the play well I mean hold on let's not do this though because whenever they face the first and second year quarterback we always talk about how I the second year quarterback does anything against Bill Belichick and then one does it we're not going to say the whole thing is totally different than everything else that is what makes Lamar Jackson special and they'd be ready for that but we watch this patriots triest team not play anybody all year long and they destroyed the not anybody that they played and you cannot them for what they did against teams ever in front of them but this team physically dominated needed them and then offensively the Patriots just look Kinda mad at Baltimore defense isn't really that strong and they look in and they look really bad early that's how we ended up in the hole that they've got out but ultimately fell back into the Patriots defense to be clear about this look lost they tried everything they tried playing man to man they tried playing zone they tried doing covers zero they tried spying him with cornerback none of it worked because the ravens have figured out that they have the best athlete on any field they on let's maximize the offense around them but what when you talk about the Patriots offense really talking about Tom Brady and it does feel like if the defense is not as good as we've seen some were close to it then I do agree gay managing Tom Brady is going to be an issue going well what I feel like happened in this game was they did okay when they ran the ball when you get down seventeen nothing you're not able to run the ball all that much and we saw those Tom Brady Aaron passes the line is not good he doesn't move will at least as well as he did when he was younger back there in the pocket while they're trying to get these things figured figured out so if they wind up in a game where they need to come back from being down a bunch of points is that guy go to be able to do it now to be fair they were close to taking the lead at the end of the first half element wild wild giving up the ball but the second half is still the second half but let us turn now to the browns because their fans are somehow feeling a new depressing the level of pain Cleveland Lost Denver One thousand nine hundred twenty four is Baker Mayfield was out dueled by someone named Brandon Allen and it is worth noting here that no team that has started into and six has ever rallied to make the playoffs in this current format so Bo what does all this say about first year head coach Freddie Kitsch I said when the season started that he started the year on the hot seat that it was make the playoffs or get fired because the track record this organization has been the first whiff of disappointment really from a head coach and you get the dude out of there will now we are there with this team and look this job seems to be bigger than Freddie kitchens right there poorly disciplined team you see them to get more penalties than anybody anybody else they hire him to basically work with the quarterback because they probably started as made them the offense coordinator because working with the quarterback isn't even working either now look this game against Denver Denver's a better better team than the record indicates is a small margin there and their record will look a whole lot different but kitchens unless they rally late and look like they're showing some progress at the end maybe that will save a shop otherwise otherwise he's out of here this feels like a leaky roof is finally caving in and you're right the Denver Broncos are better than their record but it's not just how they played in this game as you watch Odell Beckham Jr do on the sidelines after he is wide open it turns out in single coverage on a plate at might have made this team playoff contender but it is about the other stuff stuff that's happening like this Guy Germaine Whitehead he got suspended from twitter while still wearing his uniform that is one of the saddest things I think I've ever imagined in in the NFL and not only that you have Baker Mayfield man look at this dude he looks like the guy who advised Jimmy has left draft Johnny Manziel all of the optics around this team they're embarrassing you talked about the optics of Baker Mayfield how let's get to the fact that he's not good all this other stuff that you're talking about around it all of this gets fixed if they were a better football team everything that you listed there is secondary factors an offshoot of the fact that they are just not good in they sold to everybody that this was the year that this team was going to be able to turn the corner this is the year that this team was going to be good and we didn't just say hey we're going to start being good hell now man we said they were going to win the division they are healers with Mason Rudolph at some do name duck out there playing quarterback Odell Beckham junior has scored a touchdown since week two he has four red zone targets targets and now to the jets L. O. L. Just lost twenty six eighteen to the dreadful dolphins but at least it wasn't a double digit loss right Brent develops dollar doesn't look like that it's happening if you think as feels any shame about this indefensible loss think again the NFL man Insana film can't can't be embarrassed and look how fast ball right there probably heard the mansion you feel embarrassed the jets last loss of course he should unless he is quietly tanking and that's the only explanation I can give for why team has suddenly discover coverage that they are bad like the worst thing about this game was not that they lost to a team that is trying to lose in Miami is that they lost to a team that is trying to lose while while themselves also not realizing they should be doing the same exact thing they see you lean in on the tank and in a way that I could never encourage no because there are people out they're actually playing the game with the jets was it was all good until everybody got hurt like think about the first half of the first game of the those four turnovers against buffalo ending graduate do they gape they lost just about everybody CJ Moseley went down to hold defense which pot and that everything shook out from there but no he's should be embarrassed because they lost a game to eighteen that that fumble in the victory formation and had to take a safety that's the team that won that gate at the end the dude had the nerve to call a time out while the dolphins were kneeling out the clock is if they were really about to make something happen at that point this is outright shape and there is no affirmative limited reason to keep Adam gaze at this point because the one big reason was that guy was Sam Darnold the guy who was supposed to be evolving underneath the tutelage of QB whisper except darnold has been regressing right he has that game against the cowboys a win everything looks great but now in this game was back to doing the thing where he's just relying on his arm and no other parts of his body he's throwing off balance he's throwing terrible interceptions he's being outdoor Ryan Fitzpatrick Gino Smith as a rookie was better than Sam Darnold is right right now right I think that is a legitimate fair point to make that can either say the Sam darnold actually has to throw to the deal Smith had at that point like no no this is all bad and I would just like to point out to everybody? The quarterback whispering they got Adam Gates here was whispering to Peyton manning and just Jay Cutler not to so many intercept Jay Cutler was is that good when it happened but fewer interceptions and that do parley to coaching job coming up next how struggling troubling was the packers lost to the charges look talking about erectile dysfunction isn't easy usually just brush it off or blaming ourselves saying things like I lost my Mojo or we avoided it altogether with excuses like I had a long day at work or sorry honey I'm just not feeling it and as the son of a urologist I can tell you that these are things things that real human beings ten say but with Roman it is easy to talk about it with the real doctor who can prescribe real medication it is simple bowl safe and totally discreet with Roman you get a free online evaluation and ongoing care for ed all from the comfort and privacy of your home the doctor will work with you to find the best treatment plan and if medication is appropriate Roman will just ship it to you with free two day shipping the whole process is straightforward simple and discreet reet getting started is simple just go to get Roman dot com slash high noon and complete an online visit erectile dysfunction used to be tough to tackle but now there's Roman complete an online visit today to connect with Dr and take care of it just go to get Roman dot com slash high noon to get a free online visit and free two day shipping that's let's get Roman dot com slash high noon for a free visit to get started get Roman dot com slash high noon.

B. Bucks in overtime after Wilson's through five have kind of five touchdowns you will be an MVP I am and I think the MVP race right now goes Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers and the Mark Jackson in some order but this guy has to be number number one because he leads the league in touchdowns everybody loves when a quarterback does that and he was one interception so give him the current take also I mean who is he throwing the ball all too right and that's no shade to Tyler Lockett indicate met cavs been better than I thought that he was going to be but this is not the best set of receivers that anybody has in the league this is a one man show in large large part what we got going in Seattle Credit Tyler Lockett men was targeted eighteen times Odell Beckham somewhere is wondering why can I get the next topic is the pack Green Bay got smoked by the chargers this weekend with Aaron Rodgers throwing for just one hundred and sixty one yard so are you still in on the connection between mettler flu and and Roth I mean I'm not infamy in laugh I was in last week I'm not out because they had one game this is why the people we cover thinker more because all it takes is one bad game and Alva- Said we're like Oh man you think there's a problem they didn't play well that's going to happen in the course of a sixteen game season I'm still in on this connection even if Aaron Rodgers had sixty one yards passing through three quarters the chargers did this thing where they fired Ken whisenhunt their offensive coordinator and somehow became an entirely new team. I'm inclined to think there is that plus some mixture of the ball being oblong to explain the randomness as to why Rogers was a mixed Kansas City beat the Vikings Twenty six twenty three this week again even without Patrick Mahomes you on the lead she's been better than you thought I have to be in on this Matt Moore has been super impressive under Andy Reid as we have been discussing but also so I am now out on Patrick mahomes playing next week like the whole point of what Matt Moore can do given had mahomes his whole need dislocation is that now they don't have to Russia right that should be a good thing if he's healthy he should play but he did not play better than I thought he looked told you all that this was possible big thing that's happened by the way since mahomes got hurt the chiefs are a lot healthier so when you got tyreek Hill who was utterly uncheckable going down the field you got Sammy Walk in fact Kelsey Kimmy come third option dudes are going to be running around open and it doesn't doesn't require this spectacular level of Zits wars able to hold it down for them by the way I told y'all kirk cousins the whole person going to let that MVP do skates okay. He's in the north of the conversation but now Gardner Minhsiu the JAGS got blown out in London twenty six to three by the Texans so are you still in mint humane humanely question is obviously not for me. There's only one person here that was in on the mania you answer that I am in on the mania becoming a QB controversy that is is where we are because Gardner Menchu over the year Bo thirteen touchdown passes four interceptions the problem is that in this game game before nick foles is set to return he had his worst game aim of the season with four tournament also been generally poor in the red zone which is something that doesn't bode well for him necessarily this stop being a mania long time ago he just started being a capable. NFL quarterback ms last is named started with a different letter we wouldn't be lying to ourselves about what it is that he has been doing that being said Nick foles got fifty million dollars guaranteed from the Jaguars he will get a chance to play it would be irresponsible not to at least see hey what are we spending fifty million dollars on because if you got two quarterbacks you could probably get a decent price for the one that looks decent and sheet next up cults Andy Lost to the steelers twenty six twenty four up data vegetarian Mr Forty three yard field goal just over a minute left in the game so you went on the cult still having having frank breaks put it all to confidence in the world and here I am in on them saying this publicly because as with Markelle volts as with any player who seems to be having mental obstacles obstacles towards doing things that they've done for a long time in their profession you have to express confidence but man the colts have survived loss of Andrew Luck and Jacoby perset and we're doing this with Brian Hoyer privately furious about what's happened Viteri we'd be talking about them in the context of the best teams in the AFC Viteri have been better this year in on the cake he got no favours from the holders situations where laces weren't going the direction they should have but this is what happens with kickers aside from the fact that you might just get old generally speaking when it goes does he just goes there's no real explanation no real fixing it and bring it back around guys go chill out for a year or two thank come back and be capable but this is something that happens to everybody the wonder was that Eh Terry went this long without having to him.

still kind of feel that same you're not a glass is always full because just because there's maybe full half full of water still fooled with air so we gotta keep that glass full we gotta keep a chipper showed showed we gotTa Win Hey Lisa talk about eating the glass he was so close to sing we have to go eat a w at the end of that and I was thinking of how to defend him and maybe it's because like water is h two o so the Oh was oxygen that's air but then I remembered he's the the wind guys so yeah no quote before they claimed Wide Receiver Josh Gordon on waivers Friday Seattle seahawks had been doing their due diligence on free agent receiver Antonio Brown Adam Schefter adding that quote even star quarterback Russell Wilson was pushing Crx Brown before they claim Gordon so blow or are you surprised to hear any of that no not really if they feel like they need another receiver and I can see why they would feel that way I can see someone saying go get the best receiver available and and that's probably Antonio Brown I just WanNa know they did their due diligence and they came back and said no we'll go with that safe reliable option that is Josh Gordon Mike I want to know what their diligence brought back none of this is surprising to me either because the NFL we should know by now is a talent crecy if you have talent you will get more chances more than anyone else what at the same time Ba- thing that constrains the talent accuracy is like a massive public backlash it is the idea that maybe if we sign this guy we will get in trouble and that's what I think they found that say well did they find out they would get in trouble or did they find out the reasons why it is that they would get in trouble that's Salaam saying that particular because one thing we all have to be clear about we do to see the NFL and talk about them as being that talent accuracy so is the rest of the world at some point people are going to have to make peace with the reality that if you're good at something people are going to give you more chances to be good at it it's kind of hard to relate to if you're not good at something but at the same time the NFL fell is pretty clear about wanting to talk out of one side of its mouth about all of the things at values well at the same time doing the other now is that a lot like the world's exactly like the real world absolutely but when it comes to Antonio Brown man I do think he's someone who cannot be trusted fundamental rights on top of the day but that's not about the morality of his that he might embarrass Barris you like Josh Gordon you just worried about embarrassing himself three or five status now the bears record after losing to the Eagles Mr Bisky finish the Game Tim for twenty thirty one for a Buck twenty-five cheap bob lows is law so Mitchell Nagy I think it has to be on both because it's officially kind of impossible to disentangle Mitch trubisky from that Nagy we after that first half the first half which the Chicago bears had about as many passing yards as the length of this table after that first half the worst in forty years ears I thought okay we're gonNA see Chase Daniel and we didn't so I don't know at this point how I disassociate those two guys no you can't because the coach was hired to make something of the quarterback there's never a point where you can disentangle them but I understand not going to chase daniel because what is chase Daniel right like the place that they're in if they bail aww busy at this point they could try to say we're just doing a one week hard reset it's bailing on the whole experiment and bailing on the whole experiment. de-legitimize is the entirety of the presence of the head coach in the the first place last week I don't think trubisky played too badly they stalled in the red zone but otherwise he was okay he was terrible in this game because Jim Schwartz just said Oh we're going to dial it it up every single time and it was nothing to bears ad for it and Matt Nagy to your point is still experimenting one of the things that's crazy to me as I compare him being top three and total qbr last year versus this year is that they're not even trying to run the ball with him anymore Matt Nagy still seems to be trying to develop Mitch trubisky into a pocket passer asser he had four hundred twenty one yards on the ground last year just forty six so far there's another a point I think to come out of that which is total qbr might not tell you as much as you think it it came out last percents that do was number three I mean about twenty million the in dollars is how much Florida state reportedly raised in private donations to by Willie taggart out of his contract and fire him so boded tagger loop you deserve to lose his job less than just two years into his tent well desert is tricky because they didn't look like a good team they didn't look like a will coach team and if they decided to fire him maybe after the season there would be a measure of understanding how ever clipping him when they did in the way that they did and program that could raise the money to build an indoor practice facility ability but they could snap your fingers and come up with twenty million dollars today to have to look at Willie tagger no more it feels a little uncomfortable guys it does feel like it is beyond the Pale and that is only partially on partially intended because look around and find the guys who have worse records than really tagger Ted Morris I believe his name is at Arkansas that guy

"Great News there's a quick way you can save money switch to Geico Geico could help you get great coverage at a great price and it only takes fifteen minutes to see if you could save fifteen percent or more more on car insurance go to GEICO DOT com today and see how much you could save more time to catch up with Jerry. Jones the D.. In big big these two for disaster in New England yesterday and the cowboys boss sounds like he's finally had enough then the news in Philly even worse and it comes in the form of a question what is wrong with Carson Wentz. We have that answer coming up and if there was any question about San Francisco it was answered last night. Did you see what they did. Do Aaron Rodgers here we go. It's time to get up on a Monday on. ESPN WE'RE JAM packed. We are ready to go. We are fired up. And there's like a halo effect behind l.. Don't get is now. An Angel Program started this morning and we begin with a day that everyone had been eagerly anticipating yesterday the cowboys the Patriots and the wind and the rain. Could you possibly ask for any more drama than we had been foxborough to get. Things started yesterday and then late in the first with no score all those patriot. Special Teams Pat Dip rip. Reach Matthew Slater with the block to get things going early for the New England Patriots. The offense can't do anything. matchplay this as Jimmy that I got you talk Patriots takeover inside the twenty and that would set up for them the only touchdown of the game aim on this day. And this is a nice throw from Brady to kill Harry feel like we haven't seen it since week. One Antonio Brown against the dolphins one great throw by Brady New Kill Harry the rookie fresh off the IRA getting his hands. Up to speak down great touchdown throw from Tom. PATS his seven. Nothing lead next cowboys possession early in the second on a third down this is a bad snap and it's an even worse throw rex. What do we see here? Don't get a grip. Financed Gilmore bike. He's done all season the best corner in the League and not only does he. You make a play on the football he catches it. And what's the way secures. This thing right disagreed played by Stefan guilt. The Patriots twentieth interception of the year by the way had one more cats on the day. That Amari Cooper did Patriots turn that into a field goal. Ten nothing lead fourth quarter. Thirteen six can the cowboys. Get anything going yes they can here comes Landau Mesh down the field. It's a great throw by Jack to Cobb and then cobb running down the sidelines. Watch mccourty come and punch the ball away lucky secure but he massive play for the cowboys offense fifty nine yards in fact that sets up late in the Dr Thirty seven from the eleven as we watch these suburban garden gnome Catholic Catholic without disturbing it. Notice it moves moves like not at all it's inanimate and utterly without brain function but despite that when a garden gnome his about how Gyco not only saves people money but also gives gives them access to licensed agents twenty seven online and over the phone. It's clear to them. You should switch because yes. Switching to GEICO is a no brainer on second thought. The garden gnomes to carefully people might talk. We are back on get up in the game of the day was in Foxborough and the wind and the rain gene and everything else engulfed. Boil down to this possession fourth quarter just over six minutes to go third and seven for the cowboys and Rex Ryan. They weren't thinking for downtown. There's no way they they act as if they were floated in there. It's actually a good ball by but come on do what they take the field. Well hey you covered the spread or whatever you did I have no idea but you need a cover the fact you need to win a game. That ain't gonNA help you. It made it thirteen to nine. They would get the ball back. I mean in theory. It kind of works if everything goes their way. Here's the call that talking about forever on a third one. That's a first down. Play Zeke Elliott but to see the flag coming on the right side and for the second time on the day they called tripping. It's on seventy a to Frederick in the middle there. Somehow that is called the penalty biggest call of the day. The huge game and accused spotted sets up a fourth voice down Amari Cooper. It looks like they've got it but take a look again they do not it's overturned on replay. 'cause this ball clearly hits the ground the cowboys turn it over on on down. The Patriots would run out the clock and they would win thirteen to nine. It was a dramatic day in foxborough costly loss for the cowboys. Even with the law I still have the sixth best percent chance to make the playoffs in the NFC but that of course requires them to win. The division is the current wildcard Seattle and Minnesota both at least two games. The head of Dallas both have over a ninety percent chance of making the playoffs. We certainly don't need playoff odds for the patriots therein. They're going to win the division it's done but there are real issues for the first time in a long time. They are winning despite their offense winning because of their offense. Why is that PAT and I agree with you there? I think Tom Josh mcdaniels boy or going to have to figure it out. But they're special. The teams in defense have been carrying this whole thing in from special teams standpoint. It is easy to do. Just you have to be very focused on technique and fundamentals and be committed. Matthew Slater is the best special teams player in the history of the game. Everything he does is right his step to write everything like that gets the block. Yesterday sets up the only sport four but also feel position has been something that they've been absolutely slaughtering teams on yesterday against the cowboys. The a twenty point twenty yard advantage on field position and that is a good way to win games in the UK. Special teams has been helping them out. Immensely J Bailey rookie from Stanford with a big brain has been helping but also that Defense France has been suffocating specifically though when you watched yesterday where did the Defense Excel. The most against the cowboys third downs. This was the best third down offense in the NFL. They came in the Patriots. Third Down Defense so the cowboys tried to get involved and messes to get some create some rubs and watch the Patriots. They don't allow it. Those defensive backs every guy on different for levels never allows the pick or the RUB or the Mesh to happen. They get off the field because of the past break up the best third down. Offense tries another opportunity in bunch. Look at the top and washed it. Three Patriots defensive backs all on different levels. This doesn't happen by accident. This is coaching coaching. All three guys running free with the Receiver Know Pick or Mesh Rob and Gilmore's able to undercut so now they go to buy to motion racing receiver down at the bottom of the field. They're trying to get back corner to run into the defender trailing Randall Cobb never happens. He's got a free run to Cobb thirty three three two yard completion third down. This was the best third down offense in the league and they got skunked by the Patriots. Third Down Defense and the thing about it is whenever you have a great special teams that set you up with good field position if your defense can take advantage of it. I'll pin them. You get them. It's a beautiful recipe for success. Even if your offense hasn't table to get home in this whole thing is almost the exact script of the Broncos just a few years. They had a hall of fame quarterback kind of falling off of and he is at this point but that was able to win in a super bowl in a best case. Scenario greeny you can combined your offense and your defense like we saw last night. Oh absolutely let's get to stay up late last night. You missed the San Francisco Forty niners putting on a show against that man Aaron Rodgers and the packers look at this past Ross Ryan. Yeah you look good thing. Default never played for the the forty niners. I told you the best defense in the league. And they showed it on Monday night next Monday recovery down inside the five off of fumble therefrom Camerin Rogers they would then give Tevin. Coleman will take it. In for a touchdown it's seven nothing in favor of San Francisco early late in the first. This is bad on any night particularly bad when playing against this defense Brian blog the starting tackle out for the game. He does not return. It would all go downhill from there. Look at Armstead. Snow some blood in the water. They put arms thin and both the same side. Little T. game armstead comes free to set a two sacks on the night and later in the drive at won't treat me better sells a big plate here. Jimmy grand makes the catch. Wait a minute. No doesn't pretty sick. Throw by Rogers. Jimmy Grandma actually thought that the packers and Collins to was going to challenge this and make it a completion. They didn't in the end. Graham would have just one catch for seven yards right before the half packers down twenty to nothing trying to get something here but nick has just too good right is there's an line him up over a fish and that's exactly what Rogers had. Just forty one yards passing in the first half. And after a packers touchdown a two point conversion Asia are the forty niners might let them back in the game. That's the question. The answer is no George Kennel is back and better than ever. It's a sixty one yard touchdown. They're up thirty ready to wait. George let's talk. We've been running that since week. One and I have to run like two or three times a week fifty out every single time. So it's pretty I'm GONNA say Hey cow-like relax tight end. He's a very good tight. End is what he is yes. Six Cats at one hundred twenty nine yards and that touchdown that fourth quarter more of the same Aaron Rodgers. This has nowhere to go and no time to get there anyway. He would finish move. Just one hundred four yards passing the niners defense five sacks on on the day so what can we. Let's start with the forty niners rex. You said it weeks ago you'll say it again right now. What do you think of these forty nine? The best team in the National Football League. I I did say it's six weeks ago when nobody wanted to listen but it doesn't Matter Thirty Years of coaching. I don't know what I'm talking about. I knew it was going to be a horrible matchup. That game was a a horrible matchup for the packers. Why we saw the same thing like two or three weeks ago? When they played the chargers they play the exact same defense on by the way the niners have more talent? And so that's why I knew it was going to be a bad day Aaron Rodgers. Let's talk about Rogers Dan. This was coming off the bye. They had a lot of time to get ready for this game and they were never in it at all. I was shocked how bad they played coming off of that by almost looked unprepared. They let that defensive line for San Francisco dominate the football game. And what you can do against Francisco in the packer should know that is. Don't get behind the change. Because then the rush happens both is over on the left side. Okay velocity goes goes out. Robert Solid Defensive. CORNU goes to kate. Bosa go to work. And to REX's point they over fish at right tackle and it was domination after domination. Seven pressures on Aaron Rodgers US seven every one of them came after Balogh went after the football game. That's incredible number by the way and also a fumble recovery and almost touch down there but the thing about the forty niners is. I don't think you can prepare for schematically. Yes he could get the ball out quicker but if they get you in third down third medium third along you're dead because they figured out a way semantically to have your offensive line. Go One on one with people in all you need is one person to mess it up last night. They took advantage of that a lot. Rogers was under duress the entire game. I think the only thing that can really stop the niners and I hadn't been sent him because they hadn't played anybody until the should've won that game. Now they beat the hell out of the packers actors. The only thing. That's really going to stop this. If you meet a front for an offense of line that can stop their front four front five and that's going to be something that's going to be very difficult to do. They still have the ravens on the way and then at Seattle Seattle so the schedule is incredibly hard coming up for the forty niners. But you're buying them not just because of their defense which is the best in the sport but because of the tight end as well the tight end the best in football football and he doesn't know that I know he's a tight end but you run like a deer that's the difference right there they have speed on the outside so with you know and then oh by the way they have a whole stable of running backs we never had Brita play Kyle Shanahan who does an incredible job setting everybody up for success. You have that defense led by Your Guy Salah coach energetic then that often so Shanahan's brain is going to get running. I mean the niners are truly the only way they lost that game is because Shanahan pull the Shanahan and dislike. The Falcons went through when he shouldn't have run the run. The thing out two minute and they're going to be just fine much more as we go. Meanwhile let's let's get up and go do it builds running back Frank Gore past Barry Sanders for third on the NFL's all time rushing list pat. You played with Gore. What can you tell us about front door loves the football? He doesn't like pads pads soccer shoes. He shows up to work every single day. Everybody loves him in that building every building. He's been in congrats him on passing Barry Sanders Walter Payton. You're gosh he's coming for you. Let's go to the NBA. Because you to get up and go look. Donald Trump forty-one points had time six rebounds in a big win over the rockets. It was the four thirty point game for the twenty year. Old who led Dow's to five straight wins dodge becomes the second player in NBA history. To record two thousand points five hundred boards and five hundred assists before their ninetieth career career. Game the only other person to do it. Oh Oscar Robertson you might have heard of them and Lasley sticking in the NBA clippers. Pick up their fifth straight win beating the PELICANS. Thanks in part of Mantras Harrell who led the charge with a career high thirty four points and twelve rebounds becoming the seventh player in clips history with thirty and ten off the bench. LA's outscoring their opponents by more than in sixteen per game during their current win streak very good basketball still ahead on get up. Did we count out Baker Mayfield and the browns a little too early. How realistic are their playoff? Chances we will discuss and only the saints could fall victim to the pass. Interference will that they inspired a little irony irony. And it's coming for you sean. Payton not happy parts deal Harry Travis. Frederick called for Tripping Valve Fourth at eleven for Dallas Fall. Hit the ground into super dramatic day yesterday in Foxborough in which the Patriot defense suffocated Dak.. Prescott was pressured pressure on a season. I thirty five percent of his dropbox. He entered the game as the least pressured quarterback in the League. Tom Brady average to season. I nine point four yards in the air on his his passes for fourteen on throws ten yards downfield and a bunch more that were dropped. And then Amari Cooper held without a reception for the first time since joining the cowboys cowboys. Stefan Gilmore was matched up on twenty six of Cooper's thirty routes Gilmore actually had a catch in this game and Cooper did not so. Where does it leave us with the NFC the playoff picture? Well Dallas still in control of the East game up on Philly forty nine ers. We just went through their massive win. They have the best chance during the top seed in the NFC nearly fifty eighty percent and then there are other saints. They sit back. And we'll get their shot at San Francisco in two weeks. He did especially after Phasing Panthers yesterday who were trying to keep their playoff hopes alive. NFC NFC south showdown. We pick it up into third quarter. It was a one possession game but the Saints Drew Brees to Michael Thomas Dan beautiful course. It's the Michael Thomas it's a touchdown. Pass ask them breeze the Thomas that connections on stoppable great places by breeze so panthers down by seven. They're going for it on fourth and goal from the two Kyle Allen Scramble hold connects with Dj more. So we're not up at thirty one now. This next opportunity under three minutes left. I had a lot of Atlanta's more set on twitter because it's just looks like he's able to get through. Go right the passes and completed. Take a look the panthers would challenge because they said it was pass interference. This been working all year. It's not worked at all all all year. In fact right like less than nine percent of calls actually got overturned except this one does get overturned. How'd you like them apples? Sean Payton you wanted this deserve. So what how do they do with the opportunity. Absolutely nothing a new set of downs. He gets that does Allen so now. It's Joey sly already missed. Two extra points. Anthony Come on pat there. That's tough jumped over to snapper. There was a guy right up the Godley pushes it from twenty eight yards though you gotta find a way to knock that home for your game. Still tied saints at their own thirty-six ensuing drive brees again to Michael Potus twenty four yards. I down ten catches and one hundred one yards per thomas on the night he'd already kicked a game winner this year. It's will lutts take it back with one L. because he hands out the other L. to all these things a little bit thin but sneaks her home for a saints w that it wasn't our best game and by far wasn't their best game and quite honestly it wasn't New York's best game and so it is what it is amen. He's right I mean I look at his house for this yet but we're gonNA punish them because they add for adding me too. How many times eight percent less than nine percents in nine percent it gets turned over? Well what are we doing. Because it's a saints. We automatically GONNA mess. I take a look at it. Well it's visit pass interference or not pass interference. Are we comparing it to other calls this year that they haven't overturned. I think the issue with this rule was it was meant to save the game to help the game because pass interferences are such large penalties. They swing games but now with the lack of consistency it almost feels as this is foul Berto River on hates the rule and he hates rule because it makes the rest on the field look bad less than nine percent turnover one on the Internet. Everybody agrees on something except for one guy and now he has a chance to take it out on Sean Payton. I'm no conspiracy theorists. Let me put on tin foil cap if that was any other coach. Other than Sean Britain. That's not getting turned over inside probably makes the kick by the way. So Karma came full circle there yeah slide single handedly costs in that game. He left five points on the table. Able I'm just saying very quickly though wrecks in terms of the game itself what stood out to you from it off. I think first off the saints aren't as good or as completed football team is we're saying okay. They just gave up thirty one points to Carolina with a backup quarterback and by the way Kyle Allen he had a great game and he really did but let's not say is going to be the starter Darter next year guaranteed Cam Newton. If he gets healthy. I still think you'll be the star for me for the saints a lot of conversation about this guy being in the MVP Combo this is an NFL as as QB driven leagues. There's no chance he's GonNa win it but Michael. Thomas is an absolute stud at guard. Mike never heard something more accurate. The Guy shows up and shows out every the time it gets on the field they may not have looked good last couple of weeks. He's still got drew brees green. I'm still taking that over there. QUARTERBACKS vanloads jumper way over to the AFC yesterday where there were some some interesting game so you got Baker Mayfield. The browns take it on the dolphins which is a revenge game for Jarvis Landry against his former team. You knew we'd have a big day and again we've seen so many red zone struggles for this team. Nice route by Landry leaving a window. I can't dance like tall by Baker I can. I'll teach you later then later on the first browns in Dolphin territory and here here comes old Dell back. I love the little pocket movement by Baker. And then he'll down again that that's not my dance. They opened up a huge lead in hold on to win again. Then there are the steelers that team may face last week and again this week. And there's Mason Rudolph in the middle of so much controversy and continuing to play really bad. Yeah the ball. The ball continues used to get turned over by Mason. Rudolph the other football team. Easiest ways backup quarterback for you to go down on the bench against anyone but the bengals they would've lost yesterday. Rudolph bench inch draft throwing for just eighty five yards incomes dot com. I'm not throwing absolute perfect spiral to change Washington getting off off of me. Twenty three touchdown steelers quack quack. Hodges five completions one hundred eighteen yards and a touchdown steelers win sixteen ten the bengals our own eleven eleven for the first time in franchise history and so this sets up a much anticipated rematch with the browns and while they are not displayed on this graphic they sit just one game behind the pack of teams that are six and five and already looking ahead to that game. Cleveland's Defensive Tackle Sheldon. Richardson says he's Hoping Mason. Rudolph will be back in the starting lineup. Next week. Rudolph Bench today. Would it be disappointing. If he doesn't play clan Bro. You guys did such a great job of hope. Hope he plays. I hope he plays. Why did you see him as tough so it is a truth is the absolute defense? I mean that is the reality at the end of that game. The game that will always be remembered for myles Garrett in the helmet incident Mason often throwing four interceptions play terribly yesterday so the reality is the steelers quarterback situation is a mess may be better off with. Hodges what maybe I have pat. Take this so I would argue this. That all of the Pittsburgh Things Mason Rudolph should be suspended just as long as miles. Maybe not Sir anything that happened on the field. But they're all thinking. Hey get this guy out of here. Duck hodges goes into La. GETS A win. On prime time football he'd been sitting there watching Mason Rudolph Doc not only throw helium balloons from party city. Whichever single pass not always? He's starting fights the most vicious fighting. NFL history but the guy just flat out isn't good. You get duckie. Hodges judges in there with his duck call they start making a run there. It's been tough to stop the steelers especially if duck hodges is leading the flock regular. We'll send that to one hundred percent unsure what I want to ask you coming off of that. Let me talk about the browns. The browns have ridiculously easy schedule. The remainder of the way. And when I say that. I'm not exaggerating. They they play this showdown game with the steelers. They still have Cincinnati twice. I told you the Bengals Owen eleven they get Arizona which feels like a highly winnable game and then of course the showdown with the Ravens. They're not really fighting for the division. Anyway they're probably hopelessly out of that. Rex are the browns going to make the playoffs. There's no chance they will but yes. They're go to do it because I know you love it when I say but I'm looking at look. You got a quarterback that's underrated. I mean bigger. I wonder if there's really not he's taking care of the football that one bad intercept yesterday but but this is they had the talent to win all these games you know but look who's GonNa beat them Pittsburgh with duckie. Hodges hire some goose play quarterback. I don't know they got no chance or terrible. Then you can look at Cincinnati. I love how it was. Eighty two percent chance to win and then when they go to Cincinnati because that is a god moist the play it goes to seventy one ticket. What are you kidding? Who They can't beat anybody so I think they got a chance like this schedule? I never seen an easier. Here's the thing. The schedule is incredibly notably. Easy but the reality you just saw the buffalo's GonNa get in the playoffs. They don't think you're talking about one. You're talking about fighting for one spot. And that's the raiders. It's the Colts Yup. It's it's any the Tennessee titans or no. You're very high on Cleveland. GonNa make it or not. I don't think Cleveland makes it strictly because Indianapolis Colts who have an MVP. Jacoby percent at quarterback is detached the best chance out of those four teams to make it because everything that Cleveland was doing at the beginning of the year that hurt them turnovers and penalties. Not Doing let me just long healthy. The turnover ratio and last month Cleveland Brown. More about this as we go and I will remind you that our week twelve Monday night matchup tonight is a good one. It stars the biggest star Darwin. This sport the electrifying Lamar Jackson leading the Ravens into ally to take on Aaron Donald. And the Rams it's eight eastern tonight on ESPN ESPN two there's and the ESPN APP. Coverage begins with Monday. Night countdown at six coming up Jerry Jones putting Jason Garrett on notice comments from Jones the likes of which we have probably bubbly never heard before. Don't miss it next.

NFL Playoffs, Kyler Murray

"Pardon the interruption? But I'm Mike. Well, we got ten inches of snow over the weekend. Tony did you keep up with the shoveling? Tony Kornheiser did these hands. Look like they shovel. It looks like Mike dial some kid let me tell you. What I did. I actually did a little bit of shoveling. And and I I shouldn't have one about five or six years ago. My cardiologists said you're too old to show people get heart attacks all the time. They walk out in the snow, and they shovel, and they think they're I get a little bit of shopping just to see how would go win or right? But then we got killed on the back end of that show again that was like the o'clock in the afternoon to ten o'clock last night. Those men are clowns this cloudy urologist. Now aren't allowed wasn't playing live in girls. And today's episode we will get the Kyle and Murray entering his name into the NFL draft in a few moments. But we begin today with the one good game of the weekend's playoff games. New Orleans hanging onto beat Philadelphia. Twenty two fourteen the eagles had the ball late, and we're moving, but. Sean Jeffrey could not hang onto a good pass kills at the saints Twenty-three yard win the game, the resulting. Tip was intercepted. And the game was affectively over. We'll pick the eagles to win. I ask you did the saints win this game. We did all Sean Jeffrey former bear lose it a week ago. I sat here, and I did want to blame Cody parkey, but I had to what you did. And I now I sit here, and I really like I'll Sean Jeffrey good player. Good plus terrific player. And by the way, they have some way to measure who's got the best hands on drop along. He's on the shortly is draw. Jaap anything was hands at the twenty three yard line. They're going to win the game. And I'm gonna look great because I've picked eagles. He didn't know. I didn't take the points of that junk I picked him out right to win. And Tony does a couple of turning points in this game. I get credit to the saints to fake punt, Sean Payton, and that's a great call Orthon goal. Does innocence emmission we're foles got greedy early in the game. It's not nothing. Right. And as a situa-. Issue with the eagles could have recovered a fumble after Strack sip strip of drew Brees expect to the scored there to make it twenty one nothing they needed that third score. And they never got it. So to answer the question, I think the saints won this game. I think and the analogy that I would make was to Hagler in Hearn's and Tommy Hearns came out of that fight. And he was throwing haymakers and the eagles with throwing haymakers and the saints weathered that and then began to throw some haymakers of their own. So I think that they won that fight. I think the the fake punt was great. I was a fourth down was I know you don't give Sean Payton a lot of credit. But I think they did. Well, which you head to think when the eagles are going. It looked like field. This week. Yes. Jeffey makes that catch the twenty three yard line that they have all three yards. He's so taller Tony. They're gonna have a game. I think they could have could have won the game it. I mean, it leads to this. What happens to the magic? And the magic we'll still there because that was his fault. What do the eagles do? Now. With him. He sounded as he was going thanking people can I was a accepting a Tony let me tell you what he eagles did cast. And they couldn't do they couldn't cover Michael Thomas. No they could on. No. For one set of got caught one hundred twenty five passes this year or something like that. Got to cover them. Can't man Tom Brady whose public utterances amount. Mostly to nothing got a little chesty immediately after the patriots, Chris the chargers, speaking CBS is Tracy Wolfson. The goldenvoice said, quote, everybody thinks we suck. And can't win any games. Close. Quote. Tony is Brady living in some alternative universe. Or is. He right. The too many people had been too dismissive of the patriots. I'm going to say that he is not right. That people have been too dismissive of the patriots people like me looked at. This weekend's games looked at the way. New England was coming into the game and said they were the most vulnerable of the home team's. But people like me also said this they're not gonna lose this game. They never lose this game. I think they're twelve and won in that round at Boston or Foxborough whatever with Brady and Bella chick. I think would Brady is doing here is he's trying to graft onto the the underdog. Sentiment for the eagles last year that really worked for them and trying to see if people leak the patriots. They don't look good in the underdog. What what is never been? What's no, they're not? This is a situation. Brady was he was fired up after the game. He has every right to be. But this is why Tom Brady's in that list of great great athletes that I don't ever need to hear. Because he never says Jack isn't said one memorable thing in his whole public life. Okay. Not publicly, but his wife had just you don't you already throws in your own expecting something. She say that he's I do care what he says everybody thinks the patriots great all the time and anybody who doesn't think that he shouldn't be paying attention to. So don't try to grab underdog. No slow. You have to do that patriot easy to think that the patriots are always odd of it. I mean, that's how they they just usually. Checked did to the charges -fensive leader rivers. He made rivers crazy rivers completed. No passes outside the pocket. And he flushed him out of there with pass rush up the middle of physics. I say one thing that never say one other thing that he did. And this is what makes them great. Because it's always different a lot of people think that rob gronkowski is no longer a preeminent pass catcher. But rob gronkowski acre locking hide in and James D as the back them they are opening up to get Sony. It she'll have how many hours Sunday twenty-five. And so who thinks they suck and can't win a game. Nobody nobody. Okay. The LA Rams were down seven to three to the Dallas Cowboys and then scored the next twenty points. And I don't think they were ever in particular jeopardy of losing that game. They had two runners Todd Gurley as expected and CJ as not expected go over one hundred yards each and the Rams held Ezekiel Elliott to forty seven yards in twenty cares. Will Bundy genius and residents. Sean McVeigh live up to his billing. Yes, yes. He ran roughshod over Cowboys defense that had been praised good defend legitimately. So they have two hundred and seventy plus yards rushing. You don't see that sounds like a Nebraska Oklahoma rushing told in the nineteen eighties. Not a playoff game. Tony, and it wasn't bad. Whether you didn't go out there because it was mud or snow in Los Angeles. This was an attack. This is something he liked Bill. Yes. One hundred percent praise him as he saw this. He knew this felt this. They went with this game plan, and it worked there is this notion that the LA Rams because they score a lot of points. And it's a track meet for them sometimes that they were dainty team. They were not a dainty think you'll Elliot. No. They were not. And as if you're going to compare somebody to a genius you have to compare to Bella check. And if you come up with a different plan when you run it forty eight times and throw a twenty eight times, you'll have said you see I'll change. Mcvay saying you can't put me in a box. No, you can't and Tony. But this is what happens in this theme. We talk about this all the time. It's why the team with the by week is something like eighty two and thirty or eighty and thirty two over last hundred plus games because you have time to set this up. The Rams had time to study the Dallas Cowboys including watching them last weekend to figure out what they were going to do. And that's I think what you see really smart coaches have a great advantage in that next. So a month ago before these teams started getting into losing habits before Kansas City and wingless and the Rams and the saints fell upon some hard times a month ago. These were the final four teams that everybody had we thought they had separated themselves from the pack. And now we've got that force or hoping that we thought was that good. We got him. You want him? I do I wanna see I'm not I I wanna see track me bitty. Tony. I know you mostly net through the weekend playoff open. All I didn't. Why are you know, still die? I watched it. Well, the colts napped to Patrick Mahomes and the chiefs won the franchise's first home playoff game in twenty five years. Tyreek hill Darnell Williams had to share the credit with the cheese defensive sacked. Andrew luck. You boy three times as boy was passes and prevent the coals from converting even one of their nine third-down chances tongue. Did this win in any doubt? You might have had about young Mahomes and Andy Reid in these plays. And the short answer is. No, it doesn't wipe out any doubts that I had Patrick Mahomes is a great talent. It's going to be the MVP. He's great. But he's a rookie essentially his rookie. This coming up game is going to be a second playoff game. The jury's still out on him in this sort of pressure circumstance Andy resource a lot of playoff games, Andy Reed's, careers, twelve and thirteen. So does it remove all doubts? It does not they were day smothered, Indianapolis, I thought that'd be close to game. That was no game at all. I give them all the credit in the world. But, but you know, and you feel the same way I got to see it twice. I got to see it twice. We have to see it against Bill Belichick and the golden. That's right. That's and that's why no this isn't erase any doubts. It just is going to we're going to spend all week looking for reasons to doubt, the Kansas City Chiefs, and that's a legitimate thing. That's what you do in pro sports who's vulnerable to a particular opponent. It seems to me that Andy Reid maybe twelve and thirteen hundred is a greatest coach. Yes. Like Marty Schottenheimer before he could win play rate coach. And it was it seemed that when they get in the kinds of games that they have upcoming but defensively, Tony they took Andrew luck kill them. And they just they just dismissed. But here's the thing that the chiefs do get to play at home. Again, they have been great at home this season and far less on the role. But they're not on the road. Do you know why they get to play at home in this game? Because of that Miami play that crazy at the end game patriots down. Let me let me just say this Patrick Mahomes had no touchdown passes yesterday. There's three you know, when he has no touchdown passes, which is a big deal. But you know, what he's got the nobody else got Kelsey that guy's stuck. So you finally you late to the party putting Kelsey above ground because it is it's polcy above grunk as an offensive player right now. Yeah. Dry wilbon, let's make our first foray. You've been starting ready into championships. Sunday, you've been on the edges. I have. We have the Rams at the saints in rematch. And we have the patriots at the chiefs and a rematch is, well, what are your initial impressions? Obviously you like no impressions is what I'm sitting here watching the patriots. Whatever people. There are not that many. Despite what Brady said, why would you ever take anybody against the patriots until you see them knocked out? Well, because in this case, the reason you would do that is the chiefs allow thirty four points again on the road seven ten an enormous disparity. Get that. That's one lemme see him due to the okay is. Yeah. Four I picked them. And I think the saints could blow out the Rams I think the saints. What you don't think Rams could blow out the saying? I really saints. I think the saints got away with one yesterday the two teams that could beat the saints now out the eagles and the bears. One of those teams put beat the saints and didn't beat the saints. And now, I think the saints go roughshod over the Rams. So I know you don't pay attention to odds, but I do any millions of people pay attention to odds. Both T both games have opened up with the home team is a three point favorite. That's the Wickham which means it's a pick em GAM, which means nobody be there waiting to see where the line goes on something. Like this. The one thing that interests me is the fact that they put up a lot of points against each other here. Look these saints beat the Rams in New Orleans forty five thirty funds that game the page communicates the date. I have no idea matter where it wasn't matters winning. The patriots beat the chiefs in New England early in the season forty three to forty the over on both. These games is right around fifty seven or fifty seven. And I knew that I liked the over. I'd like the old enough getting the last couple of weeks. I told you yesterday I believe in Tatler nothing that I've told you got the saints. We're going to score twenty or twenty one in the eagles could win. You just should've held out the Rams they they could. But that doesn't mean two teams are going to score a lot of points. You know, the last time I sat here and talked about what was cries me. If somebody blew somebody out, no way, Clemson could ever blow out Alabama and say, they'll watch shut my. Yep. The break coming up Kyla Murray inches his name in the NFL draft. Is he turning his back on baseball? Or is this just a negotiating tack? Saints Rams probably was built four that was forever. The Blake Griffin essentially void the handshake with your voice the-the Balmer. Yeah. I thought so did you. Yes. Absolutely. He's moving too quickly. No, stop these saw informers six four. He saw him to Blake a six nine. He looked prenant. No was technology. Truth brought to you by echo. Truth. You will certainly send any text about your supervisor to your supervisor. What's Janet's fangs? Did she lose that? With a weed Wacker? Oh and Sint, wait. No, no, no, no, no truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Janet, I think my phone was hacked or something. Geico. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. Turn the show over the U which shows the generosity the host and the laziness of the producers, let me someone to prevent. Under the bus Cuyler Murray has declared for the NFL draft. Does that close the door on baseball? It doesn't close the door on Jack really know if and where he'd be drafted the NFL we he'll be drafted. But again at five eleven two hundred pounds. He'd be the smallest starting quarterback in the NFL five seventy five eleven five nine whatever the case is we don't there's uncertainty. Also, he could just use this as leverage to get more money on the as if the as and we have any money. Well, that's what that's what's being said that I don't know. How accurate this is that if he were to get fifteen million dollars from Oakland? He would've turned his back on football to me. If you think that you've got a player who's out of the minors in two to three years, and is a ten year starter for you fifteen million is nothing even in Oakland because that guy's going to make one hundred million dollars over the course of those ten years as a starter. I don't know what Oakland thinks about him. But this strikes me as the Goshi -ation. Keeping both sides involvement and you'd call that smart when you were in this. Who would do that mascot? Yeah. Sure. Would should the NFL be okay with the dolphins trying to take. Okay. So this is an Adam Schefter Morton that the dolphins are going to try to tank so not this year. But at the end of next year back they could be in it for tour Tunga vilo, they they can do that. I don't think that the NFL should allow this to happen. Look if I'm if I'm Brian flory's is going to be their head coach everybody says I don't want to one in fifteen or sixteen. I don't want the u Jackson treatment. I want to win as many games. I can look no further than the bears as a team that went from worst to first I don't like this idea. They also got a quarterback which goes back to shift quarterback who like when when I gave up for him. Now, I was at the set the record straight there. But Tony, by the way, you skipped over a quarterback who will be chosen ahead of Tunga via lower. If they both come out to same year who the Clemson quarter. No, he can't come out that I don't know if they come out revenue can't come out that he has to play two more. Yeah. That's. L but Tony quarterbacks not worth it. It's the most important position in sports and America. Should Blake Griffin have taken the time to shake Steve bombers hand. And I'm this is not a situation we wash this Blake. He's looking right, right right up. He just just a quick inroad was the guy was saying Blake. 'cause I was like, no look snub. That's what that was. He doesn't Barbara got rid of him bomber training them to leave as a free agent bomber said you're out. So Blake Griffin owes Bomer nothing. We disagree on that. And I like bomber. I think this is terrible. Blake griffin. Steve Balmer signed Blake Griffin to a contract that agreed to pay one hundred seventy one million dollars that is generational and we'll get rid of them and got rid of them half days in. But the contract is still valid the commerce somebody else's paying it common, courtesy. Yeah. But Balmer signed it common. Courtesy says the guy is there you just say Hello. He knew it was him. Courtesy says if you get rid of me, I don't need to look at you. And you walk people would be just that vengeful. If it happened to you are you saying hundred garage. Yeah. Really he. Reggie Palmer look skinny and that he does. He looks good kyri. Right. The lack of experience is what's holding back the Celtics what in God's name is he talking about. Okay. Kyrie Irving has been to three finals and made the game winning in a game seven. Yeah. All right. Al Horford how loud only played onto NCA championship teams bitterly for twelve years and a lot of playoff. Gordon? Hayward been in two different playoffs. And by the way, let me point out every single person on the Celtics said matters went to game seven of these finals last year played nineteen playoffs take to get there. So to me, Kyrie Irving is right there with Kevin Durant way just says stuff that sounds dopey. I'm no longer listening to him. Well, you sound like me with the golden. I'm not listening. There's no need to listen. Then Kyrie's case, there is a need elicit because I'm actually there and Kyrenia is great impact fourth. And he has reasons for things. I don't know what this game. I wasn't as well. Just say this. I'm okay with whatever Kyrie's said, the only. Like was just tick Yele Shen in the open. Visit Grady, right, Geno. So Boston thing just talked to the guys in the locker room. I'm okay with what he's saying. I'm not I am in uh theme. That's crazy. Let's take one last breaks become Duke. I resolve schools. Right. Kevin games. I think barely survives left Florida state's upset did. And then Tonio ground gives yet another clue these players final game for the Steelers. Can we get out of him till we stop with him. Antonio brown's. I mean, come home until he signed somewhere. Can we stop going to be San Francisco? He'll be on the other posts, you won't be any attention. He's. Heo? Shoutout. Having time people have thirty ninth birthday Byron left which left which has been named offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay bucks. A man Bruce Arians offensive coach himself will let left which call plays and maybe between them they can get James Winston on track. We'll buy left, which is a favorite of our. Yes, does he grew up in DC? And we remember that play it Marshall if two left which broke his leg when his teammates carried him to the line of scrimmage. I go years before that fourteen years old how about this prediction it. What's highschool, Mr. wilpon, you're going to be writing about me one day? How about that from a fourteen year old? He's still calls you real happy anniversary of the Minnesota. Vikings on this day last year trailing the saints by point with ten seconds remaining in the divisional playoff game. Case keenum hits bondage from Iraq. You a sixty one yard touchdown. And it was miraculous 'cause it's the worst defensive play. Anyone has ever seen the following week? Vikings lost in the eagles who made no such stupid play that. Gots defined digs that commercial. Does he ever commercial without yet? No, no, no, no, no the earned got him. Personally. Some having trails to Florida state's upset bid of Duke, Florida state was poised to be the number one Duke team for the time in Tallahassee. How calls the Seminoles were up by one point with two point eight seconds to go when somehow they left Cham, reddish alone on the right side of the art and ready. She was already eight of fourteen from the field and scored twenty points took an inbounds pass. And Conley switched to game win who only think by tout can screaming we watching this. You see what dick right? He said there's going to be a screen that's gonna come around and get the pass and take the shot and he did. No. That was that was a VM off the couch moment. One me they really was running out of show. We go to the big Jillette. James harden, scored journey plus for the sixteenth straight line. But also went Awo one for seven team from three in a loss to the magic impressed. And not really that ain't the big news out of Houston. Click cappella out for four to six. Weeks with a beach on the White Sox have reportedly offered eight years Manny, Machado connect you to deal on. So we lost the Baltimore and the White Sox lost lawyer on the com-. They're coming. You're short. Steve Sarkisian will return to Alabama's offensive coordinators had a big deal, especially Irizawa. We turned down the Carver's turn down the NFL to stay in college. Put this out. This out. Six ten John is their loss at the Australian Open a six eleven American Riley appel your thoughts freak show. My cover tennis for a long time. Most guys like between five six eighty five cents perils. He hasn't giants. I think tennis players can last one and Tony Brown removed Steelers from his Twitter bio is that significantly Rice's Brown wants to come to the Niners badly.

How my laptop open the Mike Grady? This is shameless clancy from the bleachers. The backpay Oh my God that that was like the first two and a half quarters was the end of everything that was like I had talked before on the podcast over the last couple of weeks. Just because there's been so many stingers in the row that I was at a different level of embarrassment the I can remember as an eagles him at the same time. I didn't think it was necessarily as embarrassing as the Dream Team Year or last year where they went. What four and twelve twelve in two thousand twelve or in two thousand fifteen ships last year when they went seventy nine of his agonizing? You hated all the dudes on the team now. I didn't think this year was that bad but during those first two and a half quarters. They're losing to a to intend team. Eli Manning who now has a losing record first career and should not under any circumstances make a pro football hall of fame. THOUGHT THEY WERE GONNA lose that team. I thought this team didn't have any fighting them whatsoever. They would roll over and die like a dog with no dignity. Dignity Carson Wentz said. I was important to die like a dog. I was born to die. Just like a man titus andronicus for you baby holy I'm allowed to say that. Holy Crap Great Scott Boston Scott. The UNSUNG is Greg Ward. Had A great Game Greg. Better Than Nelson Igor Greg Ward signing Tom five-year extension. Let's go Boston. Scott bring him back next year. But Hey wow. I can't believe they won in overtime. I'm just like but during that drive. It wasn't one of those like eternal dreaded like I felt like they were GonNa win. The game plan is to and ten team. Cars had the entirety of the fourth quarter. He was rolling Greg words drop propped up perfect throw from Carson is best throw of the day of the night whatever you want to say hey. Jj are thankful whiteside came along. Came Alive had a couple of targets that that great contested. Catchy made down. The side would have been a defensive pass interference or illegal contact only anyway but Jae Jao came down with. He showed some energy. He showed some life somebody back city. That's been missing from him for entire career so far the Philadelphia Eagles and what should have been an easy win which should have been accountable when the relaxing at Your House and drank couple beers and relax. laxed went to bed early stuck to overtime. Anyone doesn't matter they won. Doug Peterson who was a little cowardice. This galas as a little cowardice that AH punting from fourth in whatever at midfield earlier in the game. I didn't like that. He seems like I would have went for two in the game when they were going to tie it. At what seventeen I would have went for just one game two yards from the game time dogs play Khan was spectacular spectacular. Play con from Doug for guys missing his juice this year. Who has not had the same juicy had in two thousand seventeen and did not have at last year either that was big that was like a momentum building thing just like it reminds minds me? I'm not saying the super bowl or anything crazy but I think they're gonNA play upfront reminds me in twenty seventeen when the eagles play team that played the game kicked a sixty fifty sixty one yard field goal to win the game. Three twenty seventeen. He was wearing looking good. They they want against Washington and weak one. They stumble on week to Kansas City in week. Three they you had an up-and-down performance against the giants ultimately wasn't very good. They only one two or three games. That season just like this giant team is going to do right now but what happened in clutch situation. Carson wentz stepped zipped up made some fantastic throws down the stretch. I think back to that throw week three twenty seventeen a right before jake. Elliott's feel good that fantastic out that Wednesday. Alshon Sean Jeffrey that I put them in remote field goal range for for Jake to knock death through and I think that went once was a fantastic on that last Dr Doug play Komo's awesome. That little pitch toss to Boston. Scott the screens that inside misdirection a Mile Sanders for big I get into the goal to go territory. That is the same play that the Eagles ran back in the twenty seventeen. I guess you could call twenty eighteen January two thousand eighteen divisional round playoff game. Against the Atlanta Falcons. They ran that inside misdirection direction with Nelson Aguilar for a huge game. Don't put out the back playbook. That's where I've been calling for all season. Doug go back to January two thousand eighteen playbook that February twenty eighteen playbook did things go and get your juice back get it back. We're back bay. Well Oh my God. I'm going to wake up the neighbors. It's eleven forty PM local time softly. My name is James Clancy from the bleachers on the wonderful bowling green nation radio. WHO's ready for me to do from the bleacher pot during a playoff week? I don't know if I could contain myself. I'm sweating up a storm. Oh my God I had written my Alshon Jeffery Jersey off in anger not literally Rep. Just I'm sweating. I'm in my house. I'm standing up. I'm crawling on all fours getting sweaty. Take it off. Just don t shirt and hat. I can't do it right now. That game was the entirety of the Philadelphia. The Eagles experience. You had optimism going into it. You thought you're GONNA cruise to an easy victory. Put yourself back on the map to apply playoff from now. We'll say this before I get to head myself. The Eagles are going on a playoff run. And you should join us. The bleeding nation radio leading green nation the website at Pistola dellsher on broad and Tashaun in South Philly. Fantastic Mexican place. STOLAS has a couple locations in the city. My my favorite place to drink at bestowed elsie. We're GONNA mark specials. Dal Sucks Beers. Who doesn't want to drink a beer called Dal because I thought the best named beer of all time come out with Abdus Watch the eagles crush Washington nestling team? The Eagles have really crushed.

I watch the Eagles get back to five hundred and then get ready that trounce Dallas in week sixteen. Oh my God. We're back all my God. I do that like little subscription newsletter. I'm sure awesome. You guys are aware of it. Patriots Dot Com lashing underscore clancey. I was thinking my head at halftime like well. I'M GONNA have to start writing this newsletter in the fourth quarter. I usually write it when I wake up. Super Burleigh like six. Seven o'clock in the morning before work might not have five job but I was going to start writing in the fourth quarter existing. They screw themselves game sucks. I'll start running in on the able to show in the morning a little bit. But no they just clawed their way back in the complete Philadelphia Eagles experience. Were you thought they were gonNA blow amount. And then they started played like absolute crap and then and they just kept inch an inch an inch and the right back into the game. Like Frank Reynolds going through that catch squeezing his way back in but then usually those games with the egos goes they crawl all the way back in just a fall back off the Philadelphia Eagles are Cisa Fist and the rock is the rest of the NFL inevitably falling down upon them. But this this game Carson Wentz said no and he ruled that boulder all the way top of that hill clutch clutch has been the most clutch player throughout his career. Thus far no going into this game he had a belief five career game. Winning fourth quarter overtime drives to them had been against the giants and now three against the giants for six six told US career Carson Wentz like I'm going to say like twenty Seventeen Carson Wentz but head is Mojo in the end of that game gotten rid a little bit. He'd been static but he did so. Uh with the worst slop collection of skill players that I've ever seen for the Philadelphia Eagles. At the end of the game they had one healthy Ri- Receiver J. John went off the field on that in overtime said one healthy receiver. What three healthy running back in three tight ends? There are playing twenty two personnel at the end of the game. Aw Aw that strike the earth that's classic that's classic. When's that twenty seventeen months in the red zone doesn't matter what down and as you know? The Eagles are scored in the red zone. And Zachary run a fantastic route over the Middle Carson. Wentz quick strike touchdown birds win. God what a ton Be Alive Party is say gee just texting party say baby texting when Casey Parker the guy from Pellet pistol. We're just so excited. Notice Party next week. Come by guys. If you're in Philly really want someone to watch the game come hang out with us. It'll be a blast now. Game means something. We're doing it baby. We're doing a big time. Defense played okay. I mean the giants offense stinks Did well earlier Ronald Darby played like absolute trash. Trash can defense sidney. Jones went who got got thanked up at the end one of their deducted. Go out on if it was Miller. I can't even remember I'm so like adrenaline rush. But Sidney Jones came in on the last the last time. The giants had the ball on the field old before kneeling like the last time they were actually a real dr not when they kneel but at the end of the fourth quarter Sydney that I play into the game had a gigantic Ganic Pass breakups on third and three. It changed everything eagles at the ball back and they ran some time off yet. They didn't score in the fourth quarter but it prevented the giants score and city Jones. One play one makes a difference. Jr Thankful whiteside one or two plays make a huge difference. These guys have gotten zero from or less to your two second round picks. They've got absolutely absolutely nothing from over the last two years each made a big play tonight. That helped them win. If it wasn't for those plays they would not have won the game however Roseman. Yeah I'm I'm stolen like I hate you mode but those guys had one saving grace tonight. Die Another Day Harry Rosement you save yourself a week. I was ready to come on this podcast and be like I needed to be black black Tuesday tomorrow. Mike Rowe needs the begun guys in big conscious. This show that you have authority that you're not gonNA take this bull. Oh my God. I'm not going to be able to sleep. It's eleven forty six. I don't know I'm going to bed. I might arms for like six whatever in the morning and I don't know how am I'm going to sleep. I'm going to think about is going to some playoff tailgate. Eagles made the playoffs. You know I'm throwing a big tailgate. You know I'm GonNa be out there and you'd better be there to crushing shotgun. Knock on beers with me eating some she stakes some wings a scrapple. She's sandwich in the morning. We're doing it while car weekend. I will be there. The Eagles will either because they are winning the division. I'm back just like I'm so crazy and I'm just so up and down in my life like not like I'm having trouble just my mood is just like a mall and fluctuating all over the place. I just that's personality. I live with it. The best part meets the worst part at the same time. The Eagles encapsulate that and tonight where I was just like I which is not. I wasn't even like the press about the game or satellite. Oh my God or seasons are like my usual bid I was just numb. was like these guys didn't put up a fight. I don't even want to get my get worked up over them because they don't deserve to get worked up but their backs were against the wall. I mean there have been against. The WALFORD feels like a month or two soon now but the backs were like their back against the wall climbing the wall backwards. That's the position they were in and they said no what. Let's give them all we got. Aw screw it balls to the wall and they did it. They came back and won again. The giants are naps loot dog. Trash Dog poop dog crap team but I wonder when they need to the win. They need their as as Booger McFarland. And that Guy Joe. I don't even know his last night answer. Those guys Athens suck. They're terrible their jobs. Imagine me on Monday Monday night. Football should do for these like primetime. Games can't do it for every single game can do it for the Fox and see for the National Games. You should have a have the feed. That's just a local guys for one like you should have like the national wouldn't be awesome if espn they do they do this with the big bowl games for like the you know the BCS awesome over the College Football playoff where they have like. Oh this is the clemson broadcast. Is the album broadcast the analytical podcasts the analytical broadcast this is like the young millennial how do you do fellow kids broadcast. It'd be great if like you know there was just a bit too eagles fans like me and some other like diseased freak or just calling the game and it was just like on. I don't know like ABC. Six and Philadelphia just screamed game. I would love that even if it's not me it's two other Ding dongs. I'd love it. I'd listened to I can't listen to those two idiots ever again. I'm glad that was the eagles only football game. I don't ever hear those guys speak again in my life. Oh my God let's pull up. I'm like I recording so I had this little like My spare bedroom apartment My girlfriend actually got this nice desk for me to be able to write here.

Like Oh my God if they do if they win. I'm running in here.

We'll all survive whatever baseball can throw at US Carson Wentz. When's the last time you through forever? Three hundred yards three hundred and twenty five yards thirty three completed on fifty attempts six point five yards per attempt. Not very good to Totti's knows the most important stat. I'm an analytics guy but I like the analytics Lettuce Guy. It's funny like I'm pro analytics like Devi away all these stuff in pro you know the appropriate progressive. I want the team is Ford. Thing is possible for a while the eagles might have had the most working front office but at this term this period in time they certainly do not but the same time my brain is like this classic. Like crazy deranged South Philly guys from the team. So you would think maybe I don't care about stats but I do. But ultimately the most important Saturday night Carson wentz touchdown overtime one ally Manning touchdowns number time zero eagles when baby. Oh my God. So they're six and seven and Dallas plays so it's L. A. at Dallas for four for twenty five him at four twenty five of the birds play one they play at four I hope they're shown in TV in it. It's gotTa be you know National Game of the week on Fox that would think with those two two teams for sure. All man come. The pistol is then. WE'LL WATCH EAGLES SMASH Washington at one o'clock in the all root against Dallas at four o'clock and then maybe the eagles are going went into the week sixteen matches favorites at home with the better record. No it doesn't matter like the Eagles Dallas regardless of what else does next league but it's funner. It's so fun to watch them lose. Oh my God what a game. What a game yeah? Let's go back to the box score Boston. Scott Jordan like people saying like Oh should sign Jordan. You're an hour extension This is why you don't sound a run back extension and it needing like could they have used our nine certainly but they got clutch contributions from Boston. Scott Bo Wolf of the athletics guy. Whenever I think of Boston I certainly think about Wolf? Now I'm all and he seemed like he made those plays in the fourth year in overtime. Were Dare I say. Darren's grows like the little guy. Juki hats juice juice tonight. Boston Scott definitely leads. The team in juice Replacement Jar. That's My new stat. Take that unless skies is for myself really guy who's my new stat jar juice above replacement. Boston Scott has infinity jar. He got fifty nine yards on the ground. Ten attempts at tardy and six catches sixty nine receiving yards. Oh my God give this guy. The Game Ball. Great Scott was Marnie McGuire for Halloween two years ago. Oh it was all. It was all destined now. We got Great Scott Himself Boston. Scott it sucks. His first name is Boston. We we ran Rags Dallas Gutter for having a I Dallas but having a first name Boston's like not that much worse it sucks but got chemo clutch blaze. Today it was Great Boston. Scott Baby Oh my God God. Jj Kick car. Powell is the Boston Scott Miles Sanders. Show what a game you know. I've been hard on Doug this year and there there were stuff. Were like early in the walls. Frank right is it offering Frank right loss to the dolphins to this year like Frank. Lloyd is lost to some Thinki- teams stink gay. Frank Right has lost this thing Air As quarterback retirement for the season. But let's not pretend the colts are like fifteen an hour or something like that dunk. How Doug on his group back? Oh aw again. They played crap team. The giants are to eleven there at home. They were favored. They should have blown them out. But they got the momentum rolling Rolling Rolling Rolling Rolling Rolling alshon Jeffery to targets As alshon like I have no idea the extent of his injury. I've extent the idea of the extent of Lane Johnson's injury. Those things. Things are huge. We'll talk about later in the week but right now man look at the guys who had catches for the Eagles Tonight Zakar. It's Dallas guided. Obviously to pretty good tight ends and to say the least Bosco. Josh Perkins who got activated today entered training camp as their fourth time behind Richard Rodgers and then ended up being their third receiver. Receiver for most of the Game Guy went on the fourth of the third receiver. Has that ever happened the history of NFL. I don't know maybe in like nineteen forty seven where every player's position was like quote unquote and hand. Everyone played in. I don't even know what that means. It wasn't even the same sport. Josh Perkins five catches thirty seven yards. Greg Ward had some juicy dropped. Oh my God. The Best of the night he dropped that for a touchdown genre ended the game earlier are tied to just twenty nine yards. That one catch was long of twenty two could have been a season changer for him. Could've got his confidence back. He's never even the same. Hasn't been on the field. He's been in the doghouse that drop tough catch. But he's a contested catch champion as he was made out to be in the NFL draft pre-draft Process Limited. That's like the momentum builder for him just like it is for Carson Wentz. Doug Peterson anyone else on the team. Having a play like that can just change your perception of yourself. How yourself to your how you think your teammates view how you view yourself player software? How you think you contribute on the field? How do you think that you can affect the way the coaches think about you now? They have confidence confidence in. Jj Ethical whiteside saying hey. This kid made a great catch clutches relations seasons on the line essentially. He came down with a great catch. It's Ron let's like alshon. I don't know if he could be gone next week. They need to add someone to the team. I don't know who's available Jordan Mathews back. I don't know what it seem. They're nuts. I hate them so much but that was so much fun. That's that just sums up the eagles for me. I hate them so much but it was so much fun. It's like a toxic relationship. The Eagles are a toxic relationship. Didn't have to kick an extra point overtime. I hate in the end of the game like the Eagles went on. Like a walk off touchdown they would have had to kick an extra point which is like the dumbest crap in the world twenty three seventeen. I don't know what the line was. I think it was like eight something so they didn't cover but I don't care about that I don't I don't if you're betting on the eagles at this stage in the game this stage stage in this season you have a serious problem. I don't know what to tell you hug. On what time is it now eleven fifty. I'm wrap this up by midnight. So he goes one doug great play calm down the stretch overtime got some twenty seventeen early January twenty eighteen February twenty teen juice back Carson. Seven on the pop up in the pocket made some great throws improvising invited. Contact Huby hits pressure. Well move around maneuvered in the pocket. Well made some tough throws. Sometimes they didn't land because of the receivers themselves made some huge throws that converted most of all that game winning throw throw Zacher in overtime. Bosco comes ally. Boss goes the guy that I worked for the news for two years in college. Show you know people complain about the mainstream media but I will always Daily News ahead. They always had great back page headlines and I would bet you any amount of money in the world that have a lot of money any amount of money in the world. Aw That backpage headline tomorrow is Great.

"You wouldn't settle for two star Spin class or personal trainer so why settle for a bank. That treats you like just another number ally knows you deserve better and their mission is to be just that with Alabang Yogi great interest rates and you can chat with real people twenty four seven and they won't hit you with those hidden and be allies team actually cares about doing right by you and your money go to A. L. L. Y. Dot Com for more ally bank member. FDIC I see told America that I'm looking for a basketball team to route. Four forty seven percent of people responded to our polls rue the heat twenty six percent. Say Two bucks fourteen percents say the sixers twelve percents and so are you listening to the people they say you should be at least an eighty six percent of them. Say you guys who for the Sixers sixers are losers okay. That's clearly not on the. That's what they said is not. I'm not the one that said that they call a bunch of losers blamed Pablo. He'd be making y'all look bad it making you look prophetic and great and handsome. But let's start with Kawhi Leonard Bomani. That's right because we're going to the finals as I've been saying oh year but usually running into an over the holidays kind of tends to be uncomfortable but Toronto. Welcome back with an enthusiasm that I can't ever recall seeing for a player who just left for for another team. The arena stood up chanted. MVP and Washington elaborate two-minute tribute video and they cheered as now clippers star got his ring so bold. The question is simple. Did you enjoy watching all of that love and always dope. I mean one thing since he doesn't play for them anymore. The opening night ring ceremony was missing the biggest star of their whole championship championship right. So now he comes back now. Something that has to be noted when you say that we've never seen a guy get love like this after leaving the team. We don't have a counter example. That's quite like this one either. He was there air for one year. Pretty much everybody knew he was going to be there for one year and they got what you would hope to get out of that one year. There's no cause for this isn't like album. Holds leaving Saint Louis after being the and therefore ten eleven years and then go away. We're took literally nine years. Or so before they would have been okay with him coming back and he was and he came back and it was beautiful. This is a one time only situation because I don't know if we'll ever again have a case like this. I don't think we will but it is telling in this modern NBA that the modern NBA love story. The most romantic embrace embrace between two former partners is from the most transactional relationship we've ever seen because it does seem like they felt this way because everybody got what they wanted. They they had the players on this team. Not just the fans the players standing at half court as soon as the lights came up and by the way they brought the lights down to let the favorite song the call I love him making the shot sixers in the Eastern Conference finals. They played that like it did seem so heart warming and also so single. Yeah but the thing also though it should be noted if they did want boot every safeguard was taken to make sure that they did not like for example when they shut down the Georgia dome. It was time to bring Michael Vick out on the back of the sports car. You're they put them out there but roddy white because nobody was gonna Boo Roddy White. It was a role of the dice of whether they were GonNa Boo Michael Vick. They ain't nobody F.. You through the greatest play in the history of the franchise and you mark it on the court with the lights and the route and everything with anybody had been inclined to come in there and be mad. Here's a reminder of the best you ever felt rooting for this team and they were going to carry that thing ain't gonna because the fans tend to take the lead of the organization. We're Lebron came back to Miami for the first time when they played the video he got. He heartwarming applause if the organization in his all in all you coming back and being good about it the fans will typically follow a man remember San Antonio Kawhi went back there after leaving. They brought him with Danny Green and they announced them together. And Danny Green got all of collateral day. Care all they don't care about Danny Green and then again that's a different situation. Because they were disappointed and he never let the people in Toronto down because deep down inside they knew damn well. He wasn't coming back there if they lost in those finals and then he comes into for a Abia different situation but do we have the video of Kawhi Leonard explaining how he felt when he got that ring. Everybody God can share one started yours logo in here is somewhat middle finger. So it reminds me of finger. So if you think that's a sub tweet at the spurs but it could also just be incredibly doubly hyper literal. I mean he has to get the ring for the Middle Finger he already has one for the ring finger now. Let's go to the Lakers as they continue to run roughshod out over the NBA legs beat the Magic Ninety. Six eighty seven and push their regular twenty two and three this point. It feels like groundhog day. Braun at a triple double White House. Great out the advantaged defense was excellent. Oh and twenty. Two and three is the Lakers. Best Record through this point in twenty four years. Pablo are the Lakers the best team in the NBA. They are the best team in the NBA. Right now now when Lebron James is on the floor and it is crazy vo because seventeen years ago today. Lebron James made his national TV debut in high school. And I at least I'm still learning learning new things about him like he is the best point guard in the League right now. It is not closed by every passing assist metric. That guy is the best at that job and this is a team team. That's not necessarily set up for a floor spacing three point shooting setup that you might think Lebron would be enjoying. He's squeezing the ball in. Maybe no one else. Can you started there by. I say that the best team in the league. We're Lebron James is on the floor because that a caveat because me. Here's Lebron James. Any is like right now. They seem to be the best team in the league. If you put them next to the clippers I say. They're more complete team than the clippers. Clippers have is that ferocious potential to play defense where they can just shut just about anybody down where I look at the Lakers. As though and I see this Lebron is the guy can make plays. That's what the clippers don't have right now somebody when this type late in the year. Who's going to be the person initiate office because they depended on literature do that right now? It's a hold of the ball game with your opinion on Lebron James to do that but the reason I say when Lebron is on the floor is because when he is on the floor they have the best offensive rating in the League and they will have another playmaker. The thing about the clippers is true of the Lakers. Win The bronze there. He's the reason they can do all of this. He's the reason. Anthony Davis is currently racking up more assists than any Lebron. James Teammate has ever received an until Lebron James is covering up all of these flaws. All of them and defensively. These Lakers are good man. They're like top five league defensively as well what they wound up with. I think it's something that you see happening. A little bit more in college than the pros which is team strikes out on all these guys they want to get the Costa team ultimately have to quote unquote settle for guy. Vogel looks like the right. Do for this team if nothing else. We know that we're Vogel will provide good defensive framework. Now they're at her guard people because last year they couldn't guard sold abroad actually invested in playing defense and of because Anthony Davis Being Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard. If he's only got to play twenty minutes a game he turns right back to being a monster. He's taking six jumpers ninety three shots. Total exactly what they would want. Well let's turn now to jets ravens because there are many reasons not to care about what Vegas us as a Thursday night football blow out with eleven to Baltimore now favored by sixteen and a half F- with then there is. The Mar Jackson was worth seeing and who heard his quad. On a sixty one yard. Touchdown pass last week and now faces the five hundred jets who have prided themselves on on defense in so far as they have any pride remaining at all but if you are the Ravens Bolt how important is this game tonight before you very every single game. They play from here. Iran out is very important if they wanNA have home field advantage for the play offs like now. They should be straight in that regard because they've got the tiebreaker against the Patriots but even if it is against the jets they are still Elisa's lease offense. It'll be a professional football team so winning this game for them is very very important very very important but also it seems like a very very foregone conclusion simply because does in Ravens history I believe sixteen and a half points is the biggest point spread advantage they have ever had or the second biggest and so when you look at the jets on the other side. They don't have Jamal Adams tonight. They don't have winning Williams tonight. They don't have really anybody. You can name on defensive note as banged up as Lamar Jackson is let me ask you this. The fact that Greg Williams is coordinating that defense. How much would that worry you? If you're on the Ravens mean as ten years ago what we're talking about right like dogs do. I think that they're out here are being like we're going to attack. Lamar Jackson legs bring his head back on a stick because I figured do we have any heads on sticks coming back. He's been bag as a coordinator. Like this point. DOC WATSON WE'RE GONNA ask that question every single week about him there's a reason why he turned his whole persona into something else so people like you would stop doing that now. where I worry about the jets though is they say they got something or they're going to have something particular to roll out there to stop Lamar Jackson? You'd like to have a full week to roll that out. You want to try to implement in the short week. Whatever they're trying to roll out they did not get it to practice this week? They did not have a formal practice. They did not do the finger lineup. Somebody who is twenty times less athletic than the Mark Jackson as Lamar Jackson and run through it that way. This is a short week for them. And so they've only had walk throughs and then they face. This guy and as much as Greg Williams is not Greg Williams. I do wonder earl. Thomas has been talking. You've been talking. I wonder if there's still sort of concerned the back of their mind coming up next John Meringue continuing the Yam ofo. Yeah have you ever done your best ball before of course. Hey I'm andy if you don't know me it's probably because I'm not famous but I did start a men's grooming company called Harry's the idea for Harry's came out of a frustrating experience I had buying razor blades.

We make sharp durable blades and sell them at honest prices for as as low as two dollars each we care about quality so much that we do some crazy things like by a world class German blade factory obsessing over every detail means we're confident and offering one hundred percent in quality guarantee.

That's Harrys Dot com code. Eight thousand. Enjoy greetings earthlings. High Nunez beam to you from above the Heineken River deck appear seventeen. All right get in here if you think the jets. I'll go to lose first topic. John Moran Grizzlies Ye rickie ended on airplanes. Yeah I said Yeah M- last night in the win over the sons watch for love. Wave bore way award goes left off two legs with the right back into you. You hit on Morandi in the most fun player to watch in the League already. I have a hard time finding someone who is more fun. Because when you see this and everybody clears out. This is his teammates like hanging on the chain link fence waiting for the fight to break out and look how fast Aaron Vases running in the opposite direction which I guess would be the only thing Aron Baynes can do with that well. Look here's what's startling oiling. About Job Moran in the last twenty five years we have one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen players who have averaged ten points or more in the paint per game. He is the shortest of all right. Otherwise it's tyreek Evans and then a bunch of forwards. Those are the guys who have done this. which is this dude is just going to tate attacking? It is here for absolutely but next topic. Anthony Renzo the former national third baseman has agreed to a seven year. Two hundred and four hundred five million billion dollar contract with the angels per are passing so you went on Ren Dome Getting Mike Trout in the angels to last at my bed on that. Now my in on this I mean seventy. It'd be two games last year right so I'm not sure that simply adding this one man is going to be something to get them to the playoffs. And what don't has nothing to do with every other free agent agent who has ever signed for the angels but I have been watching this movie take place for over thirty years in other than Vladimir Guerrero. It does not end. Well yeah they are solving one problem in here. Is there a third base OPIE S. I believe dead last their rotation. Era was second though second worst in the League and so does that fix the pitching. No obviously not. What is this guy going to make people? Think of Ghost of Albert Boo bowls. We're getting paid all this money. The good news is they have all the money to spend. He's got a lot fewer miles on it but they're also trying to get arms so we'll see mahomes. Bruised is passing handed last week's game against the Patriots third injury this year series enough to land him on the chiefs injury. The report says he will play this weekend against the Broncos but are you end up being concerned about homes injured hand. I am concerned because I was concerned before about his new cabinet. Concerned before about the ankle sprain and so this is a guy who has some fragility to him and in this game last week bowl once he got hurt. What did they do the shift game plan to more intermediate insure passes if he's bombing bombing the ball deep? I think they'll be okay but until then I would be concerned about his limousine. I'm very cautious about calling these guys fragile when the reality is you probably just got injured. Bruises bruises got on. His hand is probably something that happens to anybody else right and so the worry with bruises not much different than it would be if it was UNRUH Ding it. It's going to be a problem right now. is how we got here in the first place so I don't worry about him being fragile as much as this is the NFL kneecap thing was a little bit weirdest Franken. Somebody rolled up all right. Like it's not like he just got hurt and we. You don't know how it happened. But that's Aikman the three time super bowl champion quarterback told thirteen ten the ticket that he always entertained the idea of being an NFL GM that you would find that challenge of GM into worthwhile. So you win on Asian being good at NFL. No not really no shame to him. I just don't have any reason to believe that he would. It'd be good at it. I don't have a reason to believe that he would be bad at it. Either but all the is to me is Troy Aikman and we do this thing with executives former player we liked and thought was like personable. WE WE WANNA make them in executive. I don't know if there's a correlation I wonder if Troy Aikman is saying this because he is not one of those guys not the peyton manning that normally gets pegged as this is is obviously a future brainiacs. I wonder if he has some resentment about that. Because beyond that this seems like Troy Aikman in some sense to put you hustling backward like like the guy has a national TV job. You can second guess only wants why going I guess I might be boring. I can see it now. Really Sagger former Florida state coach has been hired by Florida Atlantic. Next head coach. You went on this being a good higher for Fau. So I think on this my concern is that was just hiring guys like a fantasy owner. WHO's not really paying that much attention? Oh Big Name Lane Kiffin. Oh a bigger name really tigers but we take her. Does that Florida ties right. USF FSU the recruiting. Didn't go so great but this it seems like a high upside proposition for the school. Also I mean go look at the jobs that Taggart head all of the cleanup jobs right like we got the West Kentucky. I think there was one game the year before he got there. USF that was awful before he got there. Florida state was in the middle of the series rebuild. When he got there this will be the first round? He's got a job where it looks like. You should be ready to go at their job and was as people go back can reevaluate taggart. Remember this Park Charlie strong just got fired at. USF Go look at. Woody was that you took over there. What the decline was? That was a double digit win. Team strong had the first year. 'CAUSE we're tagger put together got and finally drake. Pictures have emerged of the man wearing era canyon gear in honor of Brownie. James Allegedly Julie. So Bo I guess the question really is how out on this argue. What is this man? What is this is high school go as is personalized Nice school year? Oh come on man no no no no no. If you WanNa Jack Right it's pop's I can understand that. He's a hero. But in the lives of a generation to people but let S J and Dante says. I'm not wearing shoes or Jersey of anybody that's younger than me in high school close drake does seem to be perpetually like twenty one jump street in like thirty three and yet he is out here associated with all sorts of young people. But I wonder right. I was doing some research on this. This seems to be like the perfect nexus of the clout industrial complex complex. Kylie Jenner. There was like a sort of lipstick thing on the hat and one of these photos. Some of your rights. This is a Kylie Jenner. Thing is Kylie Jenner went to Sierra Canyon Donald Ronnie James Monte Rally the general regeneration roots for her coming up next. Trust these shoes. James Harden Russell Westbrook behavior of hers as we walked the suburban garden gnome Catholic Kathleen without disturbing it. Notice that it moves like not at all. It's inanimate and utterly without brain function but despite that when it got known about how Geico not only saves people money but also gives them access to licensed agents twenty four seven online and over the phone.

I guess the only other person strong enough to help you would be another slap boxing champ. Yeah the guy slapping him into unconsciousness. No this is my sportsman of the year. By the way I would have voted for that guy and now the all done quote that dismissal sulfuric tiffin's desire to return to the SEC. And a burning passion to exact revenge on saving Aaron suttles Athletic About Lane Kiffin. Gunning Nick Sabin after saving fired him a week before that two thousand Sixteen National Championship. Dan So do you think saving feels threatened by Kevin L.. No he doesn't feel threatened by KIFFIN. Let me tell okay was nick. Sabin feel threatened Ole Miss. It don't matter who Jesus no matter what's going down. Yeah you lost a couple of games to at one point. Okay you want to threaten Nick Sabin. You'll no need to go somewhere other than that school to do. But it does seem that lane. KIFFIN is transparently. Trolling Nick Sabin. He is saying I want you to strengthen coordinate or your strength and conditioning listening coach I want your secondary coach. All these guys offensive line all of that. He wants to establish that he is picking a fight with Nick. Sabin I think because he wants to be punching up and therefore climbing climbing up the ladder and also save is not keen on this idea of hiring assistance. After you've gone my problem with this is the idea. That Lane Kiffin has the audacity to somehow. I believe that somebody did something wrong to him when he got himself fired before the national championship game. Do you realize what a problem you have to be for Nick. Sabin to say in the the midst of all this preparation I am going to generate this giant disruption what was part of Lake Hip and call them. Plays playoff game against Washington. Did the dues hadn't even practice and you know then. Kevin believes that if he was there in that National Championship Game Alabama want probably right quo their trust issues in Houston. Jay Williams is morning on. Get up about the partnership between James Harden and Russell Westbrook. Let's watch chase it to the quarter deals the right here. Why don't why don't all gave guidance? Your team were so Pablo these trust issues. There's something you're seeing this trust so much as it is just reality. Like James Harden knows what Russell Westbrook is Russell. Westbrook right now is a guy shooting. What twenty eighty something percent from three? He's a guy who was shooting under thirty one percent on all jump shots of any kind. This is James Harden wanted to make and now he is a comfortably ably lying in it. So let's ask this question here about Russell Westbrook because last year the rockets had Carmelo on the teams who was a guy who was not the player that he used beyond just I was not able to contribute enough. Westbrook is not the outright liability. Mellow was on defense last year. But what is he giving them on office understand this. This remained Florida James in research research with both of them on the floor. Their efficiency is plus seven points per one hundred possessions right with both of them there with just Horton. It's plus thirteen point. Nate with just westbrook. It's minus nine point nine and with both of them off. Its plus eight point Russell. Westbrook is actively making this team worse and this is is not even the time of year when we would be expecting some sort of combustible in their credit. They have not been saying anything rhetorically. That would make you worried but it does seem like all of the ingredients are here for a blow. Forget about a blow up. How about the fact that he's making them worse like the drama and all that whatever there's an an actual basketball issue here that's why James Harden they pass the ball number the knicks their fifth win last night beating the warriors in San Francisco also Bomani? Are you surprised by just how bad the warriors have been this. I mean losing to the Knicks. No matter who you got left is not something that anybody would see coming right. I mean I don't know what we thought the floor on. This would be once everybody got hurt right. Like what Steph curry was heard. Russell missed all that time. He's now back now. I don't know what I thought it would be. But I didn't think that they would be like the worst team in the league. which is what they appear to be? So what's worrisome. If you are rooting for the warriors to improve that Russell was back in this game draymond was back in this game. They lost the next. They lost to the grizzlies the game before that both games. They were actually favored in Vegas to win. But if you're rooting for the warriors to improve I'm guessing you're not in their front office viscous talking to our friend even Strauss about this. The number one result of the warriors being this bad in his injured is that the front office knows. This season is not what we care about anymore. Yeah the only thing I wonder about this and it totally makes sense. If you're not GONNA make the best pick you can so like what player they getting. And what exactly are they going to do with this one thousand nine year old this supposed to be going to try to add next year to their veteran relying like. I don't know how exactly this all works when it all shakes out. Yeah I have questions about how the fit is going to be questions about the Ngelo Russell sticking around or not all I know. Is that given this this roster and the salary cap constraints that lottery pick is something of a light at the end of the dance Larosa. You won't be around next year. You know that's all I do in nineteen that's the number of points that Coffee Cockburn scored Illinois last night and upset over number five Michigan. But this is why we'll remember his game jagdish out here all right here. We go Gary Gov oh into and to. Yeah ooh yeah yeah that that is yes. Ainley Judah met launch downward head would also know that for the poor ref. If there's two Cockburn wanted to make sure he was okay but I don't think he felt relieved after that happened. Like wow now disguised guys crotch right in my face. It makes my headache. Feels so much. Better know mostly reminds me. We actually of the difference between this referee. Andy last referee to be put in a situation like this. Do we have the video. Twenty Thirteen Carlos Boozer was the difference between those rests. That guy just walks that off. Yeah that is the different. Yeah I mean to be fair. I think we look at this and think that he got hit in the bangs but obviously not because he would have died. You know the other guy had to go into recession protocol. Go question the tap and it's tough. It's a rough one. If you got her got hit where it looks like like he got hit it right now. It is obvious that he did not he did. Not He would have died in all of his forebears would have felt it throughout history and the future so yes it did not happen but I hope that guys okay see okay. That's which came to yes questionable coming up next.

Highly Questionable

One Bad Decision

"Welcome to highly questionable domino walking. I've been because Sarah's struggling with her microphone the old man is off today because he's resting and he's tired of carrying us. What are you like on the show today? Oh my God we get to talk about Lamar Jackson. He incredible he is like a drug. He spun out of his soul on Sunday. And I love them. Sarah's seething over there let's go Jason Garrett make a mistake by taking the ball out of Dak Prescott hands a Monday tradition. Unlike any other the cowboys lose we immediately questioned in the mannequin. That Jerry Jones has running the cowboys. You can question because Ezekiel Elliott for as good as a running back as he is. He's not very good in short yardage situations. He's actually kind of mediocre. But I don't believe that that's where the question start. I understand that Dak Prescott had maybe the best game we've ever seen him avenue at home. They lost but they got dominated donated physically on those plays at the end on defense but also when Minnesota was just running the ball on ten straight plays Dallas cowboys lost that game and that's a physical football team because because Minnesota was more physical right along that line and just bullied them along those lines but still at the end of the game. You have a guy who is having in my opinion. MVP caliber season. If it wasn't for the fact that their defense has been letting them down this fighting season. You have him sitting in the backfield hitting on every path that he throws. But you won't let him make a decision. The important part about having a quarterback who's able to run in passes on those short yard situations. You have a guy who's able to run impasse pigeonhole your offense where you just handed to a running back. Who hasn't been running the ball well at all so far that game? But as you know I'm high on Dak Prescott. I'm the president of his fan club. So for all the haters out there who say the Dak Prescott was just Ryan on the the wings of Ezekiel Elliott. And that great line. Where you at now? I can't believe we've made it this far into the show without addressing the hippo in the room Dan do you only work on holidays. Today's now I'm just trying to figure out your schedule. Johnson twelve more days until I get to Thanksgiving just making sure. Okay as for the cowboys you guys are both right. Ezekiel Elliott twenty carries for forty seven yards. But if they go to him in that moment and it works. Everyone says that's the right play call for short yardage in that in that that particular situation if they had gone to Dak and they'd and they'd not been able to be successful with the pass people would have said that's the exact time you're supposed to call a run place. This is very nice revisionist history. We're doing I think. Dan's point is probably the best one which is they didn't lose the game on that Senate play calls. They lost it because Dalvin Cook and the Vikings just beat the hell out of them by by the way hippo in the room that kind of hurt a little bit I feel like elephant would have sufficed there would have been fine too. I'm just talking about your namesake at the Miami Zoo or what would be namesake. Should chiefs be more encouraged by Patrick mahomes performance or more discouraged by their defense fence. Yeah so Patrick mahomes comes out. Post knee injury. Four hundred plus yards three touchdowns looks exactly like the guy who was before the injury but that should be a surprise to pretty much know when it's nice for sure but far more concerning than exciting is that they gave up eight point seven yards per carry on the ground that they let the titans put together a four replace sixty one yard drive. For the go ahead touchdown they were ineffective on special teams downright terrible trying to make field goals. This is a team that has never had to worry about. Whether it's quarterback is good enough to make it's every other piece of the team and we saw it against this titans team that they got lots of work on it they want to be real contenders well in this particular particular game. You brought up the field goal. That was the problems they snap the ball to a holder that was not prepared. I don't think that they should be anymore. Discouraged about their defense than they were last year. Because they're bad the whole time just as good as patch. Homes Band is how bad that defense has been but passionately homes puts incredible throws on top of credible throws. And he does it so often that we get used to it and get tired tired of it I think they should be encouraged by him. Did you see that. As twenty seconds left in the game in somehow he throws a dart off his back foot to complete a pass to get them into field goal range and still the guy the titans had to cheat in order to block it. They should be encouraged passion home so I mean he was off side. The Guy was offsides. If you've seen the play off sides so Patrick Mahomes is fantastic Catholic. And it doesn't matter how bad your defense is if your quarterback can do that at any given moment second consecutive week though that Sarah's stat holds up with eight yards words per carry that is alarming. And it's not a way to win if they have to play in cold weather in the playoffs but I do want to marvel at the simple athleticism lettuces mahomes. It's not even the play that he's talking about at the end of the game. How about the six yard touchdown pass that? He had where he's just hopping up in the air on third and nine. What are you supposed opposed to do on a defense? When you're coming at him you make a move up in the pocket? His only place to go is straight up in the air and that's what he ends up doing to end up up in the end zone over there but they should be concerned about their defense. Because that's exactly how they will lose in the playoffs. Patrick mahomes can't outscore everybody. especially if you do what the Patriots. It's in the playoffs last year. When you get quick fourteen nothing lead because you just hold onto the ball the whole half? Patrick mahomes can outscore everybody. They beat the Patriots. Last I sear was an offside penalty that cost him. He outscored them even though they were down past more homes. Is that good. That deep can't get bad enough to stop that man. Did you see that you're just naming one pass. You're not even taking account the fact that he put him in a position to win without that pass also knew that was just dislocated three weeks ago. The man is a God awed worship him please even more scary on that jump passes that he threw it to Michael Hartmann. Who was not even the fastest guy on that team? Somehow that is not the fastest player later on that team and you saw what he did on that run. He ran past two guys in the test him in. He's not even the scariest receiver on that. We refuse to talk about the titans because every year the last ten years they're five and five after ten games always in the mix somehow at the end. We're going to look down and we're GONNA be like nine wins. The titans he's had nine wins again. How do the titans always up nine named three players name who deserves more blame for the rams loss US jared Goff Sean McVeigh or the steelers? We gotta give the steelers credit and Mike Tomlin especially credit for showing up in fighting with all of their stars gone in a backup quarterback order back but this is on the last Seventeen Games Bill Barnwell was crushing it on the ESPN daily podcast. This morning listening all the statistics that show you the Jared Goff is a bad add quarterback for the last seventeen games down with the likes of Eli Manning and Mitchell trubisky Qbr and passer rating. This is a guy who has the third worst expected. Completion percentage to his actual completion percentage only better than Cam Newton. WHO's injured and Josh Rosen? WHO's been benched? This is not the same off and make as a part of it too because it was able to a disguise or support him in ways that seemed to have disappeared. Defenses have figured out how to stop the rams strengths and mcvay hasn't come back with anything to answer. There's a conspiracy. I think that he's just saving it up. Well I'm just saving it now. It'd be a great time to actually put out something useful on your offense. I think we need to give a lot more credit or blame. Lame this case to the steelers defense disrupting that because while I understand. The Rams haven't been good at often for quite some time. The steelers really really difficult to get up and get motivated when your offense has a quarterback who is not good. I think we can all say that safely and they are doing a good enough job putting them in games and winning games so that aside if we're going to put any blame blame the rams it has to be McVeigh like we gave mcvay all the credit when Golf was good so when golf is back. It's his responsibility to figure out a way to to sort this out. He is the boy genius. He's the offense of mastermind who has been so good that anyone who stood at the him of his garment got a job so now time for you to mastermind. Mind figure it out. I don't care about your running back knees or your quarterbacks limitations at this point you're the guy I know that we marvel at the Patriots in general but take take a look at the last three super bowl teams Atlanta and Philadelphia. Now the rams and what they become while the Patriots Day on top and the Patriots stole the soul. All of the Falcons and they did the same thing to the rams and what you're seeing right now. Though is the system quarterback that's being exposed because it's offensive line isn't very good. They are mixing and matching along the offensive line. And now what you're looking at is they've got a whole lot of money tied up in a running back who's got a bad knee and a quarterback who absolutely absolutely needs the offensive line in the system to be great. I'd go off the board here. I'd go offense of line before I'd go anything else because gough can't be great without an offensive line line. Well girly didn't even touch the ball in the fourth quarter. That tells you a lot about where you're sinking your money and a guy that you don't even have out there in the fourth quarter and you're right about the offensive line. They were incredibly lucky. Lucky that in seventeen and eighteen. They didn't lose a single offensive line players to injury for one game and now they're having to deal with injuries and replacements and that shuffle is absolutely a big take part of this. But I wouldn't say I blame the offensive line more than Jared Goff. The Guy Behind the line. They can't seem to do anything unless the situation around him. As perfect on four down decided to a fake punt the punter throw the ball rather than let Jared Goff throw it that says it all so now. You're blaming the punch you're just attacking special teams throughout the day. That's what you're doing. Yep they don't have much pressure they actually throw one ball. Every six weeks hecker completed coming up next on my TV show by the way Dabo Swinney is the reigning national champion. Hasn't lost a game and yet we're just pretending he doesn't exist. It's because we like the accent on the guy. We Go Tigers Kylie questions brought to you by Modell a tastes. That's pure gold. modell brewed for does with a fighting spirit. Hey I'm andy if you don't know me it's probably because I'm not famous but I did start a men's grooming company called Harry's the idea for Harry's came out of a frustrating experience I had buying razor blades. Most brands were overpriced over designed Outta touch. At Harry's our approach is simple. Cures are secret. We make sharp durable blades and sell them at honest prices for as low as two dollars. Each we care about quality so much that we do some crazy things like by a world class German German blade factory obsessing over every detail means we're confident and offering one hundred percent quality guarantee. Millions of guys have already made the switch to Harry's so thank you if you're one of them and if you're not we hope you give us a try with this special offer get a Harry starter. Set with a five Blade Razor waited handle shave gel and a travel cover offered just us three bucks plus free shipping just go to Harrys DOT COM and enter eight thousand at checkout. That's Harrys Dot com code. Eight thousand enjoy is Lamar Jackson. Starting to make you believe that he's the best player you're in the NFL. Starting to believe that. I mean I might have already believed that before this game but they put up the Ravens. Put up forty nine points to the bengals thirteen. Lamar Jackson Jackson had a perfect passer rating. In somehow the greatest highlight that we've had so far this season wasn't even passing. It was him running an embarrassing. The entire bengals defense events. I know their defense isn't great but NFL quality defense. You're not supposed to be putting up type of highlights that you did in college against one AA schools against this type of team Lamar accident excellent outstanding. And what he's meant to that team and so that offense I think makes him a legitimate. MVP candidate in my view. He might be the front runner because their offense is as sufficient as some of the greatest offenses that we have seen in the league. You can go back to last year's chief team though seven Patriots or could even go back to those Super Bowl Falcons this team scoring scoring on more than fifty percent of their drive. Just like those teams. They're fantastic. They're the number one scoring offense in all football with a run focused style. So I think we'll Lamar. Jackson is doing their position. I consider him the MVP and maybe he's the best player in the League. There's obviously some still some more questions about him passing if they're down by a lot of points but they're never down oh by a lot of points because they score on almost every single drive so they get up early and Lamar style allows them to solve the game away. It's outstanding when we last saw him COMPLA- A playoff game. He went to complete hours of football with out completing a pass and now he looks like an unprecedented football player. We are watching something that I don't believe any of us have seen when you look at what it is that the ravens are doing this. They told you all off season. This is what they were going to do and not even Bella check could do anything about it that they were going to do it this way. I can't believe that we're in a position where we see somebody. Somebody who is changing the game at that position but I worry about the same thing that I worried about this offseason. A high ankle sprain changes all of that dominate. Because he's not going to be able to be the best athletes on the field if he keeps getting that kind of usage rate and he's increasing his odds of getting hurt the concern about him remains the same. He's going going to get hurt. Playing this way because quarterback has ever been allowed to play this way and stay healthy. Yeah addressing that quickly. That's obviously going to be concerned. His usage whether whether he gets injured taking to many hits whether this is sustainable over a number of years whether they can come back. Those are all questions to be asked but guys like Patrick. Mahomes who are similar age similar or experience are the ones that are actually out with injuries while the Mar- so far has managed to stay healthy now addressing the original point. I think Russell Wilson might have something to say about. Whether it's the best player in the league I think maybe Aaron Donald. It's very difficult to compare across different positions in the NFL. Who's doing their job better? But Lamar Jackson the fact that we've been having this conversation is a testament to uh-huh Grady's Ben he's the first player in NFL history to have a perfect passer rating. At least fifty yards rushing and a touchdown run. That's a very specifics that but it's still the first time anyone's anyone's ever done it and we're seeing him do a lot of things that we haven't seen before and every time we think somebody whether it's Belichick or another great defense is going to be able to scheme to beat him. They have figured out how to get through it so yeah absolutely he should be in the conversation for one of the best out there. One of the greatest things that I think. He's bringing to the game into Shawn Watson. That's in a couple of these quarterbacks who play a little differently is diversity as we see how analytics across basketball and baseball causing all teams kind of play the same way. Everyone's everyone's shooting a lot of threes. Everyone's trying to hit home runs the one of the luxuries that football has because of players like this is the schemes are dynamic. You can go from week to week and it not even look like the same sport which I I think is a blessing for all of us sports things well and this is a perfect example of that because the bengals have a terrible run defense and instead of going out there and having Lamar Jackson run as much as he's averaged in other games he he actually run ran far less. They went to the pass more often. Maybe something that the Bengals weren't expecting but you're right. The scheme can change a lot when you have a player who's dynamic. It's him dominique. I don't I want you to answer this as the player apology of become an old age. I want you to answer this as a player who played in the League. You're on the other side line. You look at the other sideline and there is a player. Who is kicking your butt wearing sunglasses on the sideline? Are you admiring the swag or are you saying that ain't fair. I mean if if he did what he did to us I would pretend like. I was upset but I really like damn. I wish he was my quarterback and not Ryan Finley so I write. Are you college football overlord. LSU does a great job of sort of testing all of our coach worship. They won a championship with a grassy eater and less miles on the sideline. And now they've got this swamp monster that nobody understands with all of these pros all over the place winning games in ways that you're not expecting expecting Lsu to ever win games when they beat Alabama. It's nine to six. It's not like this with an offense. That's running roughshod and then a coach in the locker room afterwards. Who's giving giving you the sound of roll tide? What bleep you and then you know breaking an energy drink can on his head love that he's here with the personality? Don't think it's coaching Ching Acumen and genius and strategizing that it's doing it for him think it's a whole lot of pro players. Because as he said in that locker room he is recruiting the best of the best and they can be on a field Ala Bama and look at the other side and have comparable bodies all over the field was certainly really fun to see. LSU finally get over that Hump specially with that coach. Who seem seem to mean much more to that state into that university than any other coach like He? It means a lot to him too because he was almost in tears. The Post game press conference but if he's GonNa make it to be our overlord he's going to have to keep winning and winning championship at some point. I'm normally not the guy to pump the brakes but I feel like in this case it's appropriate because Nick Sabin is as good as it gets so he he is our current overlord. Maybe with devil sweeney a little bit behind but is GonNa have to win a few more games however that voices magical is it insensitive to imitate that like. That's that we get in trouble for. I don't understand the rules anymore. Nobody does I agree with you. He definitely did a huge thing this week getting over the Hump leading his team. It was emotional. It was passionate. It was exciting but Alabama has more national titles than home losses in the last thirteen years. Okay like you don't get to be the overlord because you beat a good team wants Alabama's eight and one against Lsu in their last nine meetings. I'm not sure how we're deciding overlord status but it feels like we might be jumping jumping ahead a little if you get to win one out of nine times then suddenly you take over the throne. Congratulations Lsu eddoes. Run way more interested in exciting to watch the Nick Sabin. But he's still will everybody. Daddy I mentioned we have an election for overlord because I feel like I would in that case. I mean if you don't just have to claim to. I would vote for Oser on like everything I'd love about college. Sports that exploitation by the way Dabo Swinney is the reigning national champion and hasn't lost a game and yet we're just pretending he doesn't exist because we liked the The accent on the guy. We don't go with prescription. Prompts required online physician consultation and only available if the physician determines prescriptions appropriate full full details and safety information. One of the scariest things that can happen to a guy is that first morning you wake up you look in the mirror and you start to realize you're going thin top. Two out of every three guys are going to start losing their hair by the age of thirty five thirty five. You're still a young dude at that point you're GonNa Start Losing your hair then think about it a year from now. It's all gone in. Everybody used to think as soon soon as you start losing your hair. That's it. It's genetics. It's father time and there's nothing you can do about it. We'll guess what that's wrong for him. Dot Com is a one stop shop or hair loss.

Their hotel beautiful southeast each time to play the game that thinks highly questionable. Just got a lot area just not on the top of it. I'm not that hairy. Actually I look like I'm Harry Harry. You give us topics and events. We'll tell you if we question. Do you question choked worse Appalachian State's defense or South Carolina's offense so Appalachian State is leading all game in South Carolina which season made by beating. Georgia has the ball down five late who cokes worse. That's what we went to college. Four to find out who chokes worst here down five. Oh Oh my God. How do you miss all of that? And then worse you end up in some shrubbery. Oh what what happened. The Appalachian State Defenders ran into. Oh what a terrible feeling. He caught that ball he ends up with with shrubs in his mouth. What a terrible terrible feeling? Yeah it's really embarrassing. A terrible past guy was wide open. You didn't have to lead them that point but also it's kind of embarrassing for the right like they talk about how there's a supreme conference they have all the the best teams in the team. That Georgia who we think are pretty good. Team is now losing to state. Clearly offense choked worse. The defense knew exactly how to get into the brain of that Cuba. They said you know what he's worst at completely wide open past guys that have zero coverage anywhere near try. It see what happens. Ah Related to my friend Mitch. Because it seems quite similar to my man Mitchell trubisky does on a regular basis. That's an interesting thing that you might bring up. Because Mitch had three touchdowns yesterday. Anthony ends vagaries dumb. Here's your sitting here blaming punters and holders thirty one passer rating time to play the game. That doesn't believe I believe that Dan isn't that Harry or no. Excellent timing by all of us You tell us what's on television. We'll tell you for intrigued or not tonight on. ESPN Monday night. Football seahawks and forty niners. This one looks like a little bit of fun but Russell Wilson. Listen who often is very boring when he's not playing. Football is throwing a football here with some Harlem globetrotters. They have sweet Georgia Brown a very famous song. We do not have the writes that song so instead we have our crappy house band doing what happened their accuracy. Accuracy happened there. Okay yes the accuracy of these quarterbacks makes you understand why it is the James Winston will never win anything in Tampa Bay Dominique Intrigue. Of course I'm intrigued. It'll be fun. Russell Wilson is probably the leader in most people's MVP talks. But I think tonight is the night wean. Lamar Jackson overtakes because Russell into seahawks though their records have been impressive they have not played very many good teams and their defense has been terrible. Their offense scoring enough points to win but I think when they go up against a tough defense like they have in San Francisco. They're gonNA fall behind and from this point going forward Russia's GonNa play a lot of difficult teams. I think he followed behind him. Lamar takes over for the question. Wasn't a bunch of Lamar. Yes it's a great. It's already born. Sarah Intrigued Si si very intrigued intrigued with the game. I'm also intrigued just why. ESPN would pay millions of dollars for NFL. Highlights so that we could show you that instead of literally. Any highlight of Russell Wilson. Doing good things. I didn't spend millions of dollars on our crappy house band. visit that all the time we have for today. Only one C. or no. Do you guys have anything to Plug Dominique. What do you have to plug? Oh absolutely go to an undefeated dot com read a lot of good writing their. I'm not their writing but other people are okay so he's plugging his not writing. Sarah how about you. Do you have something to plug. That is actually yours. I do. That's what she said was Sarahspain new episodes out every Tuesday wherever you podcasts. I'm also plugging. Dan's look very tan series.

The official unofficial podcast of the Clemson Tigers can do. Welcome everyone to a new episode of the all in Clemson Tigers podcasts are first ever. Game. Recap. I'm Briley. Joined by Carter. Just. finished. Toast. You want to say something. As everybody. Thank you but. We just finished watching the CLEMSON game. And what a game it was. Edge of my seat all game. Yeah we decided that this week would be a great week to start doing game recaps thinking. Oh, it'll be. EASY TO DO RECAP NOT A, big game we'll get some practice in before they get a real game jokes, us? Clinton. Will have real game this season. And this game is tough because there aren't a ton of takeaways. I would say not many. Shot but in the future will spice up a little bit we'll do I say more takeaways will do. Winners and losers will do other things anything. We'll do something right now. We're finding out on the way as well. But yeah, in the future, we will definitely a few more features to this episode to the game recaps but we will be doing this every week in addition to our normal episodes which come out. Either late Thursday night or Friday morning pending on how quickly get them out. So, be sure to stick around for that this Thursday because we will preview the UNC game and we will do some of the things that we do on the all in Clemson Tigers podcasts. But in the meantime, let's go out and talk about. The game that just wrapped up this weekend clemson versus Charlotte Course Clemson one, fifty, two, ten. Shocking News you're breaking news you're finding out on this week. I dominated Charlotte. Clemson and only gave up two hundred sixteen yards. They had a pretty clean game. They did have a couple of turnovers but. That was because her backups on backups and you want to, and it was like the backups backups because. This is the most amazing stat. You will ever hear I this is insane closer play school record one hundred and eleven players I can charlotte. The previous record was ninety four. So, they beat it by some team players. And included in all of those were Dallas me son and then. Defensive Coordinator. Venables. Yeah. His son. Kurt herbstreet sons played as well. You got everybody there bunch of famous sons. And of course, the starters played for about a quarter and a half. So yeah, we we talked on Thursday Irv when we last had our last episode, which if you listened to it, it was probably Friday. We thought that one of the one of the big things that I wanted to see was i. didn't see the starters in the second half because I didn't want to see anybody get hurt you barely in the second quarter wish granted because they didn't play much beyond the first quarter in fact, Trevor Lawrence only through one pass in the second. Quarter and it was a touchdown. That much to say about that. Yeah. So I guess one of the takeaways is that close. It was pretty deep and data sweeney is an excellent coach for getting a hundred and eleven players in this game to play. That's really special. Pretty cool. But beyond that Clemson extended their school record winning streak to nineteen games. From Eighteen Games, what are you? And this was also Dab One Hundred Fiftieth Game Coaching and because he won his record is now one, hundred, twenty and thirty. Not Too. Shabby it's. Not, bad at all. Now, one thing that the broadcasters brought of that I thought was important was they mentioned that Charlotte Played Tennessee last year At Tennessee. To sort of get ready for this game. Death Valley. got paid to play them. Yeah. That's true. Now they lost of course but. I was thinking that maybe Charlotte should've played Georgia state instead. Clemson because. Well, I don't know if you know if State beat Tennessee issue. At newlyn stadium. So Better. Luck next time Charlotte. You should scheduled George statements instead of. The cupcake Tennessee. That's right I mean they got paid what I think. I saw it was a million dollars the play Clemson so they're I think they're all happy with it. I think they had a fun time. We'll seems like an interesting coach and actually they showed it kind of a cool. Little scene before the game we're Dabo was talking to will healy and his wife and his son, his four year old son, and we talked about this on the last episode hell Dabbagh was texting will and. I'm watching closely to make sure that you're not doing this anymore. Nor texting opposing coaches during the week but it was cool to see the sun seemed really excited to see Dabo and. The family anyways will heal. It just seems like a fun coach and there've been a couple of stories that have come out. About how he looks up to Daboh and that's why they were texting because he he he's kind of like a young DAB wannabe and that's not a knock on. This is his first year coaching, but he's really trying to. Coach, Dabo Sweeney does which is, which is good I? Mean Dabo when he's doing. Yeah. Exactly. I don't think you'll build a program like Clinton in Charlotte, but you never know All right. So let's zero on the defense side of the ball. The defense didn't give up a first half touchdown. So that makes us again four straight games where they haven't been a defensive touchdown and you brought an interesting up to me like to know the stat first of all in how you heard this that yeah I was watching different game night. What game was that I was watching the Oregon Stanford game and they mentioned that organ why were you watching because I'm an organ fan as well Okay Okay Moving But organs also actually one of the only four teams in the country having been up a first half touchdown as well. Guess we should look at the other two teams are. Clemson are at least you brought that to my attention right after I press record on my little device here. So we didn't have time to look that up. And those of you home go ahead and do your homework. But giving you half the stat. Arcade do all the work for you guys. That's right. Nonetheless, Clemson is one of the fourteen and then country who has yet to give the first half touchdown, which is mighty impressive considering the teams that they played besides. Charlotte. They have played three power, five teams. My I mean not to like from it, but actually is quite impressive i. mean you just have one drive or give up one big play without paying attention or something like they go touchdown I mean pretty impressive again, and let's not forget that we've been harping this over and over but the defense was the question coming into the season. It seemed like it was going to be the question at least they've answered all questions in more. Yeah and may already be the tough part of the quote unquote the tough part of their schedule. So maybe the defense will vote touchdown in the first half all season. Well, we always go. That'd be pretty cool actually. We'll see we'll see. The line on this game was fifty one and a half. Points move and Clemson just covered actually. So you will not see Charlotte Clemson on bad beats on s VP. Anytime soon, because Clemson did cover just barely but they did. The defense only allowed sixty three passing yards as well, which this is an interesting set. It marks the tenth time since two thousand, seventeen that they've held an opponent under one hundred passing yards. Just let that sink in verse, Ten Times in three or two and a half seasons while two and a quarter seasons that they've held an opponent under a hundred passing yards and the modern day college football. That's incredible. Quite tied for that stat though. With none other than the Michigan Wolverines who are on the decline. So I would say that Clemson probably has shot of. Staying ahead of Michigan from here, that's actually quite impressive stat this looking like you said, like watching all the college football and all the quarterbacks throwing this watched highlights the UCLA game against Washington state. And guys term and nine touchdowns in a game. Like to do that, that's pretty impressive and especially against the Charlotte team that's put up. I forget what they've average, but it's been I. think it's like forty five points a game so far this year. Granted they played umass one of those games. That's her. But still points team that. had been put up points. It doesn't matter who you're playing. If you put up forty five points a game. Yeah you're doing something right. But the defense held the passing game and check the one area that they didn't do as great of a job at stopping was the run game. Gave One, hundred, fifty, three rushing yards, which again isn't a ton necessarily and they only they ran the ball Charlotte thirty nine times the average three point, nine yards. So nothing great there, but they did see A. Remembering College football that sacks count is rushing urges willing to sacks that played into it but Charlotte did break some. Good runs throughout the game fairly consistent consistently. So are you concerned after this disappointing performance from the defense against run you now not concerned because they ran the ball thirty nine times only three yards per carry. Not Amazing, but it's still pretty good. But I'm obviously kidding, I, know you are by gotTa take this serious Oh thank you. Thank you can't overlook every game. That's right. Sweeney. Yeah. We gotta remember he was describing the Charlotte Forty niners San Francisco for. They just crushed. Whatever forty niners? Yeah. But the defense played well, they had they had a pick six which is great to see and again the defenses in a question. All the questions that we had an offense however will not be none of the none of the questions that we had have been answered. Simply because the starters didn't play much of the game. The did score in every possession in the first half which was. I mean you can't do much of that. One of those was a field goal so I could do a little better than that. If we're going to be picky about this. Et N. at scored for the first time since our rushing touchdown since the first game this season. So it was great to see him get back in the end zone and highlighted the game was lend j Dixon his flipping touchdown. And I mean that and every since the world word flipping touchdown. At, though one twenty four mark in the first half to extend the scored thirty eight to three, which is crazy because the plate before that, he had a pretty amazing reach for the N. Zone which I wanted to see it again. But the before I know it he just jumps the end zone over I was like well, never mind that's even cooler than reaching for the end zone. So commenting on wow, that was that was one of the best stretches I've ever seen, and then all of a sudden here's. Jay Dixon flipping over literally over the offensive and defensive line like didn't land at though. So he can work out a little bit but up and over the offense is impressive we'll given let's give them a six out of ten for. Six. Sure. How about that? But Yeah I'd say that was probably my highlight of the game and he had a pretty good game as well. He had fifty eight yards on eight carries congratulations eighteen by the way sixty one. Yard I didn't mean that to be. And had sixty one yards and actually what I like to see most is that trump Lawrenson have any rushing yards. Which means he wasn't running the ball. Thank you for not running. Trevor Lawrence in this game the ball he took two or three steps in the pocket and threw it. There's no pressure or anything at all. So yes, he did the most of his time in the game he was summit of nine for ninety four yards and two touchdowns had a Qbr of ninety six point four. Not Bad not bad. And of course. As Tim Hasselbeck SEC network commentator for the game to me mentioned trace Bryce I, think, corrected later in the game, of course, it's chase. Bryce. Trace. Begin with. Had A pretty good game. I didn't even catch that well. Because you weren't watching the game because it was. Pretty Boring. Trace brise went five of seven for eighty five yards and a touchdown. And even got the third string quarterback in. And we suck at this because I don't know how to pronounce his name either. Back. Keep making fun of people and they're not to pronounce names ourselves so. Mechanic. He did throw a pick on fortunately. A spicer third string quarterback but I do know the coaches are high on him. As I've heard I just don't know how to pronounce his name. We'll get better at that. We'll find out when our golden boy Trevor Lawrence leaves for the NFL. Joan gotTA had a great game three catches sixty two yards and a touchdown. I believe that's his first session in his college career I'm usually I might be wrong on that as well. T Higgins had one catch for fifty eight yards metal. Do Wonders for your average. Touchdown. Yeah. So the offense came out well, the one thing that again, I'm not concerned about it but. This has been a consistent concern. So maybe it is a long term concern. The defend earth excuse me offensive line was still inconsistent in the running game. I didn't feel like they would break couple holes open which you would expect in Charlotte. But then they would get stuffed on third and short or on the goal line a couple of times that happened. So I do want to see some better more consistent run blocking from the offensive line, which there shouldn't have been the reason for that. No Lawrence came out early in the game, but they kept most of their starters in with the linemen. running-backs obviously taking lauren sal takes away some of the past but. Had All the starters in? So they should have done a little better with that. It doesn't matter. They could have been playing their third string and they would have had as much talent on the field as Charlotte at that time. So you would expect the starters to dominate again they've been really good in pass protection but. Again, we're getting picky about things that don't worry about it. It's game that really didn't matter, but it is something you can improve on. So I. Hope in the future we see some more improvement. So those were kind of the main takeaways. I'd say we have buried the lead on this. We have a few extra takeaways. If you were watching the game. The commentators were also reaching for things to talk about because the game was obviously out of hand within ten minutes or five minutes really of the of the game starting and probably the biggest news. Headline from this game was the fact that a movie was being filmed. On. Location at Memorial Stadium. And it's all the commentators could talk about. For, the second quarter it was pretty cool to see though. So if you didn't know. A new movie coming out called safety and it's about Ray Ray. McCarthy, who played at Clemson between two thousand and six in two, thousand nine. And it's a very interesting story. It's a sad story but also a really cool story of how to see the resilience and the love of a brother for a brother. But also clemson plays a part of this because. I'll just tell you real quick. Ray Ray had a brother who was going to be heading into foster care because his father wasn't in the picture and his mother was heading into drug Rehab. and. So Ray Ray decided that he wanted to become the legal guardian of his younger brother. Instead of having him go into foster care, which is an amazing story but Ray Ray was playing college football for Clemson news enrolled at Clemson. So the program helped. Ray. Through, this time as he played on the team and as he was a student, they helped him kind of raises brother and it was really cool story and I. You know I'm not overly familiar with all the details. It was a little bit before my time but it is a very cool story and there are some. NEAT. Pieces out there about this sort of have more details. So you should go look at those but all that to say that Disney is filming a movie about the story. And they're focusing on the time that he was at Clemson and the movie's GonNa is called safety. It's going to be coming out next November and it's only GonNa be found on Disney plus. You plug into Disney plus now. If they would like to sponsor our show I would be happy. Although I am plugging them right now and the sponsors ever shows so. But. anyways. So all that to say, they were filming on location during halftime they ran down the hill. So the fans instead of paying to see one. Hill run they saw. Instead, it was really cool because nobody left at halftime everybody cheered for the team that and what was also cool is that they were in the attire of the Clemson Tigers of. Two thousand, six Erin. And they did a really good job with all the details there and actually ran a couple of plays. During halftime now, I must say my only complaint with the network. This game is that they didn't give us full out coverage. Of the opponent. First of all, I don't know who they were playing. And I don't know the plays that they were running during halftime. I wish I had seen those but that was probably the most exciting part of the game I'd say. Yeah they I think. Really showed more highlights from them preparing to film the action that seen in the last five minutes of the game than the actual game I don't blame them for that but. I think the coolest thing about that is when you were saying the guy's name, Ray Ray has try to give him a nickname. He doesn't need a nickname I. Mean Ray Ray and I was saying that because his last name is a mouthful mcilwraith be. I listened to the pronunciation and I believe that's correctly again that was a little bit before my time but and it. All to say, look it up I. Think it'll be a cool Disney's doing it. So it's bound to be. Interesting at least. Depending on how you feel about the new star wars movies than. You'll find out why are we talking about the down? All right. The next thing. The next extra take that we have for you real quick is that we have some PA announcer controversy. and. That's because one of the constant players is taped off today because he announcer mispronounces nape name after he had to tackle. Obviously, over blowing this a little bit but. Jake Venables. The son of the well respected Brent Venables. How to tackle during the game in the PA announcer. Dan Gilbert accidentally said Brent Venables tackle. What a joke do your job I'm kidding obviously. But and I'm sure jake is killing as well. But I'll read you a quick quote after the Game Brent was asked about it and he said, I heard about it after Jake did not think it was very funny are sending their when the player when the player said that and he was not happy. So he did not find the humor in it, but he'll be fine well. Think of it. This way you could be like dabbled son who muffed a punt. Would rather be that not a great game for coaches sentence. I think it should be content for where he is I'd say, yeah, I mean it's fine. It'll be okay I'm sure. But we we're we're here breaking that story for you. We didn't break the story somebody else wrote about it and we're stealing it. About it so we Won't tell you where I founded the. And finally actually there was a funny I forget what it was. We were laughing at it. It was when did this happen? It was it must've been the first half when. Clinton actually drew Charlotte are not offsides, but the false start remember the first they were like freeing was confused and I was I was up get doing something and I looked over and I was like what the heck is going over there and I thought they were doing it on purpose constant swarming around like a bunch of crazy people who you might say like Brent Venables did I said if there's a play that Ever proved the point that a defense takes on the persona of a defensive coordinator. It was that was because if you see Brent Venables on the sidelines during games, he's going crazy and this defense I couldn't believe it. It was so funny couldn't tell if they were confused or what they were actually doing. Yeah. I think we decided on they were confused. So it worked out well because Charlotte actually had a false start because. They had no idea what was going on. It was very funny. All I finally, our final extra for each today was. A rough. You laugh at. I'm sorry actually I should look I don't know if I could find out actually doing okay today and he had to go down but. Boy. Did he get pancaked and he was walking after the game. so He seems to be doing fine but and he was a tough raff he came back and he was rapping after continued the game but hey. It was. We were reaching for things this game remember the. First Time doing this to recap a game just for an episode so that's what you get like I said we'll. We'll add some we'll spice it up in the future episodes I. Think we'll probably do winners and losers because that's what everybody does spice up a little bit for us to spice anything up. That's right. Well speaking of next games. We. ARE NOT CHARLOTTE UNC is not coming to town because Clemson is going to Chapel Hill. I finally got around to that. Go roundabout way. Has a ninety four point four percent chance of winning. Is that good or bad or excuse me is that Correct or incorrect should it be higher or lower? Is what I'm asking I. Don't know I. Mean North Carolina Lost Appalachian State earlier this year. So I think it's probably about right yeah, it'd be. And just beat a team that also lost to Appalachian State earlier in the year because I did that state. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. In Charlotte Lhasa. Appalachian State. As. Well. But the North Carolina South Carolina. So they go clugston fan we have a conundrum. Yes. So that's coming up next week. And we will actually give you a little preview not a little. We're GONNA give you an in depth preview, this Thursday or Friday. Again and comes out this week. As I should say, we will give you a preview of the UNC game. And that game is going to be this Saturday obviously at three thirty, it's GONNA be on ABC too so very set your calendars and your schedules set your calendars. Counters set. Mine's not I've added it to my do people actually add games to their counter. Now I think they keep in their mind all week and they know when it is probably if you're doing anything on a Saturday but watching. Football you're doing something wrong. We're not here to judge, but that's our job. Going to say that all right. Well I think that's a good recap as we can provide at this point. Again, we will add new and exciting things future episodes.

Get our APP APPLE APP store Google play at the link at the top of our twitter <unk> handle. Our Youtube page is just going gangbusters with the number of people telling me that hey they follow the show through Youtube. Please go and check out. If that's your way of consuming matters I that's what a perfect way to keep up with Antonio Brown news <hes>. I I made it into a youtube video this weekend from him. You head <hes> yeah because I saw aw it's Friday night right. <hes> and <hes> I get a <hes> <hes> a text from somebody that <hes>. Hey <hes> Antonio Brown is <hes> put out a youtube video where he's recorded Jon Gruden conversations he's had with Jon Gruden and on my okay I'll bite. I I look at it beautiful video. I mean I mean whoever's doing attitude. It's great. It really is beautiful striking cinematography. I never thought I'd use that words to describe anything of Antonia Rent. That cinematography on Antonio Brown <hes> and <hes> he included a whole bunch of <hes> audio or his people include all bunch of audio of NFL media folk to <hes> a talking about Antonio Brown's behavior including me asking the question of Jerusalem his agent through Stacey Dales on our Thursday night. Broadcast is Antonio all right which as I tweeted out one one hundred percent based on genuine concern for a player who I met <hes> Post game of Thursday night football game years ago where he crushed it balled out kid from south Florida Dion wanted him to come on the set to we asked we asked Ben I I am Ben declined. I'm telling you and Antonio Brown showed up and it was that kid who balled out against the against the browns. Mike Wallace wanted the big contract he was the one who is is just doing all the hard work and just dominating and he was a delight to talk to and all of the behavior from the feet to what I saw on hard knocks to the helmet to the screaming and the yelling at work and the apologizing to to to the t- to his team. I mean again Thursday. He apologizes to his team in it looks like they were letting him back into their graces and you could hear the phone call that. Gruden made to him like what what the Hell's the matter with is essentially is what he said and then comes Saturday that the report from Chris Mortensen that that Gruden found it amusing on my okay. How many things is this guy going to do. The GRUDEN is GonNa good cop here and somehow some way. There was a disconnect either. Rosenhaus didn't let them know this was possible or telling him. It was coming the raiders. I didn't tell Rosenhaus it was coming and they just told Antonio Brown. You're going to be fine two hundred thousand dollars for this thing with Mayo and all of your guarantees are gone. You GotTa Play Week week-to-week for us and then comes the instagram saying releasing on Saturday and Chris Morton's report Sunday that he reached out to social media consultants last week to speed up his departure from Oakland. How best how I look I've heard of crisis management people and Social Media and public relations. I've never heard of reputation exploding <hes> experts. Here's how to explode reputation. Are they the ones who told him. Hey have you been fined Antonio. You have okay. You should instagram story story out. You're fine letter and use the word evil to describe your team. That's what you should do. You know what you should do. Here's what you should do tape Jon gruden wooden begging you not begging you imploring you to be a professional and put that out you should you. I should do really those people exist because his sure doesn't seem like Antonio needs that help. But of course it's all going to work out a New England. Of course it's GonNa work out in New England because nobody takes the oxygen out of a story that would normally emily burned down your football house quite like the New England patriots and it all starts with bill check who handles the media in a way that certainly when you ask them straight up yes or no question just removes everything from equation so they dominate the steelers last night and it's his first time being in front of media after signing Antonio Brown on the spot literally honest about I mean I we. We were our game day morning meeting. It was two o'clock in the afternoon five o'clock eastern time and had already been done and he's not officially released until four o'clock eastern. That's when it was so this was bill belichick <hes> last night after the game gopher. My Bill just wanted to see. Do you have any he comment on the reports and that was that Tommy didn't even get out Antonio Brown's name. Just don't say don't ask you a question that here's another one bill. Your offense was up obviously very productive tonight but Antonio Brown already put out on social media that he's joining your team what my head can you tell us anything about that decision. No I'll talk about the game players on our team. I thought they did a great job. Authencity we had some balance and they'd some big plays a couple of big throws down the field for touchdowns and big gains so anytime you can get those explosive plays that helps open things up. Why did you sign him. That's the question. Why did you sign and he could then say well? It's not official yet so I can't talk about right. Why did you sign Antonio Brown. Why he's a top five wide receiver. I understand that it's <hes> I will say this so patently disappointing for so many fans and I understand your Patriot guys. You didn't want you didn't want them. You said you didn't want it. I don't think they needed him to win the Super Bowl but also want to invite that behavior into your house. It appears to be disruptive whether or not he changes. I guess we'll see you didn't want him didn't want him okay that just goes to show you how insane the behavior was they don't want and it runs completely counter not everything that I saw for the two days at the NFL one hundred taping a keeper of the NFL flame where respect must be paid to the game and it is paid back to the men who due respect it with championships because we're all pulling in the same one team do your job direction. I was so impressed the modern day Lombardi however reaches into the page of the latter day Lombardi because he's the modern day Lombardi Lombardy not just because of the XS and os but because winning isn't everything it's the only thing and he handles the media in a way where he doesn't answer the question or it's doesn't it's doesn't pose properly and he's got a goat at quarterback and he has a level of success that demands the respect that Antonio Brown clearly did not have towards towards the end of his reign for Mike Tomlin and clearly never had for Jon Gruden and absolutely didn't even remotely have for Mike Mayock and for this guy to behave the manner that he did to get out of Oakland the manner in which he did and then get rewarded by playing for the privilege normally to play for for the Patriots so disappointing for so many fans I got texts and tweets and DM's of people just saying they got sick to their stomachs over all of that is because they already hate the Patriots. It has nothing to do with the Patriots. It would have been anybody obviously the Patriots lend a different level level to it yeah different level too it also they're able to do it because bill is maybe the only coach in the NFL aside from. Mike Tomlin maybe P carroll with the job security and the pedigree to take a guy like this on which is why we're going to see if Antonio Brown is really crazy or crazy like a Fox because if he mocks this up and I'll direct one last time I'm I'm assuming to the Cameron Antonio Brown you Sir have the best situation you've ever had. You've got the best coach ever played for best quarterback you've ever played for with all due respect everybody else. Who's coaching quarterback for you. The best the best Brady's apparently already invited Brown into his actual house to stay Michael while he's trying to get set up. You've got the best if you can't stay away from your social media accounts for a guy who view social media so sideways he calls it snapface. If you can't just do your job then everybody will wash their hands. Even though everybody was I thought he was washing their hands into the raiders. Let him go but you. Rosenhaus said that there was it's another team. Do you have what this Rosenhaus out to say on on. ESPN this <hes> this morning we had no idea whether the Patriots would be interested in in fact. I didn't have any communication with the Patriots until well after he had been officially released. After four o'clock there was no intent intent to steal it wasn't premeditated at all he simply asked for the team to release him and they decided to do that and had ignited being the Patriots H. Rates it would have been another club who I'm not going to call out but we were in heavy negotiations with two teams going back and forth and there was a good chance adding tonio was gonNA sign with the team not named the New England patriots so the amount of money the Patriots gave him certainly certainly sounds like there was another team involved here and Bella check. I don't think is going for the old banana and the tailpipe like say having a phone next jury ear while Williams Willis mcgahee sits next you waiting to get drafted making it seem like other people are about to take the kid with a bad knee like drew. Rosenhaus did way back in the day man's good agent and I have heard that there were multiple teams but I still believe there had to have been some form of communication. Shen that Antonio Brown would react the way that he reacted to losing millions of guaranteed dollars just because that bad in Oakland as he really view Oakland Oakland so bad that he acted like he was running free into his own backyard and again that's why he should should stay away from the Youtube and everything else because you got a coach that is dousing all the oxygen out of the flaming house to the media. I'm sure Brown on will not be made available to later in the week and just do your job. That's the way you win championships in New England eight four four willful rich number to dial. WHAT'S OUR POLL question results. We're here at the very back end of first segment of our number two Chris still so crazy. It's crazy. It's crazy. It's nuts and again in the NFL. You do not treat your again. He's told his teammates. I'm sorry the captains were behind him. Okay the captain's supported him. The quarterback was there and then he learns he's getting fine for the obviously findable offenses and he says I want out and then the model franchise of the NFL says were all in on that yeah well. We'll we'll we'll. We'll make sure you don't learning single lesson from all of that. There will be no repercussions agents from all of that except for the fact you get to play for the best coach best quarterback and the best team coming off of yeah so that's why so many fans are pissed and then you see what they look like without him last night against steelers site so they don't even need them really they do that last night and they add. Antonio this week and they might add Gronkowski and like two months. I'll people's heads will explode then all right <hes> the poll question today at richeisenshow on twitter. What was the most surprising result from? NFL Sunday decks perfect game eight percent steelers failed to score a touchdown twenty eight percent ravens put up fifty nine points twenty eight percent titans route the Browns thirty five percent vote for that one too man. I would vote for that one too because I believe the Patriots'll shut anybody down right now. I you know Dak has has looked terrific before. I knew the dolphins. We're GONNA take but the titans going into Ohio. Oh which after the browns scored a touchdown start the game and then punking them thereafter <hes> was particularly impressive and surprising eight four for two four rich number to tons of phone calls.

The middle had them burn their last time out play defense and try and and hold onto our six point lead but not Lsu not what Joe Borrow not with the way Joe Borrow is playing and the head coach of Lsu football after that big huge win over Texas coachella coach L. Ed or Jurong joining me here on the rich Eisen show. How are you coach doing great great to be on your show great to have you back walked me through your decision to just turn borough L. loose right there on third and seventeen yeah well. We lose touch down. Go ahead by two scores. <hes> we were not stopping him on. Defense Steve as they did the great job that Dr Joe made a great place. <hes> try it was alleged made him a great block on the linebacker. Joe Slated medal and just debate debate a great catch and ran ran out after what a great play. When do you make that decision. Obviously there's a few seconds before snap on third and seventeen walk me through what a coach thinks <hes> button pushing seeing how everything's going down in a big spotlight that Austin trust among war the plan trusted their belief and I'll quarterback would have an outstanding quarterback will always felt that we can get to protect the ball count appeals over the white I bartend and around here on the rich Eisen show you said after the game that it was a big statement. What statement did that make that win the statement you know let's say some give give credit to Texas. They fought they were tough. It was a great atmosphere that quarterbacks. It'd be one of the best quarterback we've seen. It was a battle to go and beat a top ten team on the road inpatient versus although whatever behind we face adversity and we have to so <hes> how does how does this provide you what you need to move forward then well defense you get better <hes> we have thirty one points in <hes> basically thirty one points of the second half. We're not at least about so we got up to get better at that continue to do things on all that we do get. I don't get to where we need to go. How much better can borrow though he's he's pretty good right now. We have some things you get better at you. Get Out of the run game but right now <hes> the way he's playing why say this with the ultimate of respect <hes> <hes> what's gotten into him. I know he's good and he has been great but he has been superlative. He has been just remarkable over the first two weeks and especially again in a crucible crucible spot like awesome yeah that that's what he wants. He's a game or a ball or he loves. The loves the competition this is Joel Osteen. He's is more comfortable around us. She moved pile took over it. No the players very well not a players believe in them this team. He's worked with these receivers. There's also malone relentless hours in the classroom with Joe. Brady Steve is bigger and the guy's just a ball. He loves the game at around here. <hes> on the rich. Eisen show some gamesmanship here as well. <hes> is did your band get forced to sit in the nosebleed section. Yeah I think we have something like thirty thousand fans. Show up at put up in the nosebleed section but you know what we're from Louisiana Man. We're GONNA fight right so that we can hear loud and clear. We'll proud of them and I'm sure we'll get something for them when they get to come to Tiger Stadium next year. What do you got what I mean. <hes> uh the the section at the top at the top of the stadium right now for the tax your administration okay <hes> and or cleanup duty. Vivo something like that could could you could you do that. Well Company richest neutral okay. Let's go around here on the rich Eisen show and the offense <hes> so much is being made about the twenty first century spread offense that you are employing with borough right now when you when you hear that what do you think when people are saying we haven't seen an offense like this out of. Lsu before or something we always wanted since I got hired. It took a little while to get it to get the right people in here. <hes> get the wide receivers obviously the right quarterback. Stephen Good friends you know we put my personal style offensive with USA and what we did in Miami but we need to go to the spread and we found the best guy to help us learn to spread this Joe Brady Young got. I'll always wanted to saints fans wanted to Rpo some penn state. He's coming in and put it in a Steve done a tremendous job call along with Joe guys believe in that's working working well and <hes>. Do you believe that you are the best team in the country right now. We don't know that I know a good football team but I know no this that when we're playing well and we also GONNA be heartbeat. We also Saturday night with special teams. We although we have a goal line stand played well in the first half. We have to play a complete game sixty minutes this SEC tough. We gotTA take it one game at a time. I know you've got Florida Florida. You've got Auburn both of them at home and then you've got a visit to Alabama. How much do you keep your eye on other schools as you matriculate your way through this <hes> as Z. So schedule you just take it one game at a time one day at a time. We have state coming in this weekend. Today's telecoms Monday to win. I'll be allowed celebration. GonNa on what I put on team. Maybe twenty hour rule and tomorrow we'll be focused on beat northwestern state and just take it one game at a time. What did you call Monday. What is it called eldest truth Monday a walk me through what this place well what we do. Is We felt the things that we did well with the team. We all that they did well. We're showing the things that we busted will improve improve. Donald Trump Monday mistaken the coaching in the Games but I tell them this is all family we tell the truth. We put it all but they were moved forward. Is it a two way street to the players. Get to tell the coaches some truths or no <hes> whatever whatever's wisely have what we call a leadership meeting council meeting guys always their opinions show certainly make him okay so the truth is somewhat of a one way street. <hes> in in in a meeting is what you're saying right definitely okay but the door is always open for the street to be flipped to go all yeah okay all right. This is exciting times top five now for your school how do you. I guess <hes> another coach coach in your <hes>. Conference calls that rat poison. I'm wondering what your thoughts are for your team to look up and see all the accolades and hear about them back out the noise by the noise good bad indifferent coach Karl. USC. You just can't believe what they read about when you when you win they make. Oh you do good or bad so you know <hes> we gotta be able to control the weaker troll focus on balance sheet tigers and so far. We have great leadership team. We've done that okay and do you pay attention with. The saints are going to do tonight. I mean how how are you. I'm a big fan man. I love to say Sean Payton's a great coach Ryan Brian Nilsson Costa. US's that's fine coach of friends with all those guys. Mickey low missile we love drew brees. We're big fans of the Saints Okay and if you smoke in his eye on Williamson listen if you met him yet speaking of big on offered him a scholarship when when he was in high school hold on a second now walk me through that one coach at orange around correct yeah yeah we are you <hes> dining graduate. Cisco's named Eric Metaxas who watch them play basketball offered him a scholarship so so we want a few schools that offer football scholarship and what happened <hes> no response he chose to play basketball. Do More even respond to your offer run to play tight end at. LSU Is that right eating respond to get much response okay well you could have brought him to the state of Louisiana Ziana before <hes> before the Pelicans finally did okay position. He wanted to win a football. I won last serious one for you and then one one more question it for your coach at Orange Iran <hes> scheduling <hes> putting Texas on your schedule and vice versa <hes> second game of the season. It's just becoming so rare I mean fans. Just cannot get enough of games like this straight out of the gate and it seems so many schools are either <hes> shying away from that that or unable to do that. I'm wondering what your philosophy is on that scheduling onboard especially when you win obviously but you know you had. Lsu You gotta be at the top. <hes> you want to compete with other. Teams are not accomplishing. You WanNa see what you especially early in the season that tells you a lot about football altea and the only way to learn about football teams to play the best. We played a great team of text. These guys don't go a long way. Well did you <hes>. Did you <hes> <hes> are you for any sort of uniformity though where everybody's gotta do this where everybody's got to play in the SEC. Everybody has to play AH caliber of a school that when you schedule them that's their caliber <hes> like Texas. Would you be up for uniformity nationwide on this coach. No I think I think football's you play with it and you conference able to schedule a non conference games and I think he's according to your school accorded the Athletic Administration to head coach football team. You've got a team that you want to schedule weeks. Choose to compete at the highest level. That's that's about a sign and I saw tweed. You'd have to game. I'm sure you're not in charge of the twitter account there at Lsu where you are the minister of Culture of Lsu. Did you see that tweet that somebody sent out there. I don't watch none of that. I I'll tell you what we go. We have some cages. Come Cook US jumping higher white beans and rice fried trampling right got this. You should obey word for it to me is that right and so we had a great meal. That's great celebrations. Okay very good. So did you say anything to the Texas Ministry of Culture Matt McConnell. Did you say anything. No No. I was just interested. Tag is winning football game. We did it. We got out of town. I'm glad to be back back in bad route all right and and and tea with <hes> hot tea with lemon and honey for that voice coach. I'm always concerned about. It sounds like you're in postseason former with that voice of yours. We're ready to go okay. Take care of yourself coach. You got it. Thanks that's Ed Ores. You're on here. I didn't give me go tigers at the end right there. Normally we get that when he comes was on the show at Voice Doors Ron manager they go that Yo- Barrowman. He's nice the sixty sixty one yard with a game winning touchdown pass with two twenty seven ago now they're down twenty two seven and a half and they come back. Yeah I can win it. What a stone's call that. Is You know what let's row it on third and seventeen. They got one more time out to go. I love that stuff. If I you know I know that so much second guessing. Why would you do that play to win. Don't play to not lose. I will take that out of my team's coaching staff every time point a win man. That's why you're there. Do you have the Nick Sabin soundbite. Let's play that this is what Nick Sabin add to say <hes> when asked hold on let me make sure I get this score right sixty two seven ten victory home victory over New Mexico state didn't cover. Oh God are you serious. They were fifty five and a half point favorites in other words the same <hes> spread. That's is going to be for the Patriots at Dolphins next week right probably two. It didn't even play the fourth quarter easier once again. He's gone through <hes> half of September without playing in the fourth quarter so it's going to be so of course everyone talks about this schedule where every year there's a <hes> you know warm up for Auburn game this year. It's good a Western Carolina. That's right before the Iron Bowl so Alabama's soft schedule. <hes> shall we say is something that Nick Saban has a soft spot for this was nick after the game you thank this kind of level of competition can get you ready for an SEC game a week later well. I've talked about this before I so we we try to schedule the best teams that we can schedule and <hes> we're trying to do that in the future as well <hes> but we have we can only play the people who are willing to play us. I I've said my opinion about playing twelve power five schools. That's what I would rather do <hes> so but a lot of other people don't agree with that. I'd rather play Tennis Games and N play to other power five schools so all the Games are exciting for the fans. All the Games are good football. You wouldn't have to go undefeated to get in the playoffs because you play a more quality schedule. I've been through and covered that ground a a hundred times so do I think we can get better in games like this I do if you approach the game right and you practice the right way and you prepare and you have the right focus and you play to your standard. You can get better playing anybody. Would I rather play other teams. No disrespect the New Mexico state. Their coach works hard. Their players played hard but if it's my philosophy that we should play twelve power five schools. I'd say the answer that would be yes but that's that's a philosophical answer. That's not the way it is so. I don't know why you would ask me that question as if I could do something about it when I can't do anything anything about it. We're playing the best teams that we can get the playoffs. Why don't you start calling around and see if you can get somebody else to play and and play. 'em We'll play anybody can get to play okay. Kinda was a four answer yeah several podiums so well. Here's here's what I will say when I hear that if there's anybody out there that thinks <hes> poor. Nick Sabin he's just making an excuse excuse that nobody wants to play him that he could find somebody wants to play hearing that rational it was rational response by saying I'll take ten league games and to what would you say the power conference. France opponents that they have to ever GonNa play in the SEC. He would do that if he could. I will say to anybody that thinks he's making potentially an excuse or reason for his soft schedule. I'll make you athletic director somewhere. Would you schedule Alabama game. One game two out of the gate no okay would you know with your job potentially not as secure as other places right and your program either coming up or troughing or trying to get to that next level. Would you put it all on the line in a as knick points out system where undefeated schedules are paramount. That's right no chance in the same anyway I would never put army on my damn schedule and I don't want to see it on Michigan ever again. I'll take a break a comeback until it man walk you through that one yanks. Wait till show you this text. I got just just as things were really on the line. Wait until I show you this at the Maryland. Just scored another to know how she how about that.

It's my phone running out of juice. Look at my phone when my other buddies have texted me that the army guy settling in for the kick to win it phone buzzes and I look at the phone and here's the texts put it up. It's from Todd Fritz same tents in big house and I wrote back is this this one they call you captain obvious and he wrote back probably Fritzy who who in their right mind and s somebody whose team is their season. Life is on the line who just taxed. Hey man pretense for your team. What is that if you still need a fantasy name tents and big house Fritz. That's what is that. Dan Control your people. What the heck of course I I'd screen-grabbed that and sent that to Paul and Dan with my remaining battery power was so pissed who does that. Someone like do you do that. I don't know I didn't I didn't hear you remain. Leave me alone. Daddy left <music> out who you cannot wait. I cannot wait till the broncos earn some sort of tough spot tonight tonight's week one. I mean like season on the line install like his playoff. Life is on the line. Hey presents team <hes> tencent mile high tencent Mile High I mean that text is in the shoot frizzy. Wow <hes> let's go to the phone lines right here. <hes> let's go to WHO RAN VEGAS. Let's take Ray in Vegas here in the rich Eisen show what's up very rich. How you doing man what's going on brother ran. They've Antonio Brown thing. It's just `nuts I just WANNA. Get your take on a couple of things. Go forward one do you think. NFL is going to do anything to him especially with this phone call now in California it a crime to do what he did well. It's up to grow if gruden wants to press charges. That would be one heck of a way to you know hit him with one more fine going out the door. I don't know we we have the update on that in the next hour. Okay <hes> No. Nfl what does the NFL going to do what does the NFL this whole thing about yeah just released like less than a couple of hours aries time by the Patriots and now you're saying that ten conspiracy but some something just doesn't smell right then <hes> fresh Ville look rate <hes> he for whatever reason he wanted out of Oakland and the clearly findable offenses of missing a practice in training camp missing a walk-through in Canada barking your general manager any reportedly profane manner and furby threatening him reportedly sadly these are what we would call findable offenses in a contract ridden with language saying you do these things you can lose your guarantees and then all of a sudden somebody holds accountable and east takes that personally we talked about that with Doc rivers on Friday. How you handle that Gruden try to handle it by essentially being the good cop every time and then either you can sit here and say and thank you for the Call Ray. He just looked around and he saw I can't outstanding place anymore. I can't stand my general manager and deep down. I know I'm going to get picked up by somebody if I get out of here and it's possible that that team has quarterbacked by somebody better than Derek Carr and maybe in his in his right rightful state he heard or rumors. Everybody talks in the NFL that the Patriots actually tried to acquire him when he was on the block with Pittsburgh but Pittsburgh the very very warm place would have to freeze over for Pittsburgh to just hand him to New England for three to five so if they were interested in actually giving up draft capital for him they'd be interested in just coughing up kraft capital for him or Rosenhaus can do that put two and two together. I mean he's clearly one of the savviest agents in any any sport so put it all together and drew says now we didn't know the Patriots involved until after he was released again. I'm not saying that's a Brooklyn Bridge sale but I have to know that words out on the street and people talk if I'm the raiders I might knock on that door with the League but the League not GonNa sit here and say his behavior was so reprehensible the Hansel in Oakland that we should sustain suspended for what instagram eight four four two zero four rich number dial when we come back act poll question third hours for you and Alvin Cook of the Minnesota Vikings who is just tremendous in that week one beatdown of Atlanta speaking of beat down a crucial member or their offense is down for at least half a year update on Nick foles injury and so much more than Jaguars of traded for quarterback Chris Brockman News Update and your calls coming up what he paid you you know the Jag just another guy on ESPN around the horn.

Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock

Cowboys/Seahawks, Bench Wentz?, Trubisky/Foles, Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson

"Welcome to speak for yourself presented by Hyundai Marcellus Wiley in the house would Emmanuel Acho dog we usually have swag wars on the Internet. Who Wins the day in terms of our cloven west? Banker Soup today I, left I know you've got money but are you reading thinker? Happy, Cabrera. Are we here for the next two hours guys so. Wow. The weekend in the NFL. Let's get it started with Dak Prescott who do for at least four hundred and fifty yards for the second straight game stack at three touchdown passes as well. But he also threw two interceptions aloft fumble deck was picked off near end of the first half. Then on the cowboys potential game tying drive to picked off the in end zone Dallas is now wanted to start the season. Wacho. Do you blame that Prescott for the cowboys seahawks Man Marcellus? I taken such a deep dive into this and I'm about to give the fans something they might not like but it will actually like medicine. It'll be good for him in a long run. Okay. I don't blame Dak Prescott for the cowboys there you go way to go back home to Dallas blamed Prescott, for the cowboys not winning. I don't blame them for the cowboys. Laws are blamed that press conference cowboys. We live in a NFL air right now where you count the quarterback, that's all the praise and the quarterback, all the Blaine right or wrong is what it is last week the cowboys come back and beat the Falcons we didn't give Kudos to the cowboys special teams coach. Hell Dak. Prescott, we didn't give Kudos to the cowboys kickoff on team recovering play and fantastic fashion. Oh Hell Dak Prescott. So now when the cowboys lose I'm not going to blame. Dak Prescott. For their loss. But I will blame Dak Prescott for their lack of winning. If you're running four by one hundred and you say the fastest man to ever live if he gets the baton and third place, it's not his fault they're in third place more. Blame. You saying bolt nephew finishes in third place not say what you're doing now. But as you saints fault if he doesn't take them to win the game because you've seen this. Great what I've learned now in NFL football is quarterbacks Kenna tone. For the thins of everyone else. I don't care about turnovers right now Marcellus I don't care about time of possession and I'm a defensive guy but look statistically the best quarterbacks win the Games fourteen games were played yesterday. We can throw them out the window only in two games. Tell me this cause because you'll get one point. Holy. In two games did the quarter the worst quarterback win by what metric is worse. So the metric of eyeballs whatever we're all. GonNa. No. Consensus of what we say here's here's what I mean the offbeat the cowboys Russia's better than that. The bills beat the rams dared down better off right now. Josh Allen is better than off right now the browns they beat the Washington football team Baker Mayfield right now is better than. On. Go down the list don't take time. Go Down to hold this team with the better quarterbacks win the game. So it's not DAX fault. Mama I lap and I got lapsed attitude. Is Not that Prescott that the cowboys loss, but in an era where your quarterback can atone for the sins of everybody else is that Prescott fault the cowboys didn't win, we'll look I can put it on deck and put it on deck in the moment they sound like what a one eighty from me but it actually will serve a greater point that I wanna make about the cowboys and Dak Prescott. So yeah can blame deck deck despite Avocado -secutive career games. We saw a guy who didn't play a clean game and Mike McCarthy pointed that out Dak Prescott with the two. Turnovers, and then one at the end of the game we're going to say it's three but really that one that's Hail Mary almost situation but the one going into the half and then a strip sack actually does land on the resume of Jack Prescott now we're in a pickle of deck is the reason why they're in these games but deck is the reason they don't win a game yesterday l.. Let's talk about that game yesterday because that game yesterday saw office ally a mash unit that went through three different lineup switches during the game they had the sitter go play guard. Go play tackle. He was like excuse me you don't play since. K whatever and you saw them not having Tyron Smith out there as well. That was just the start the game. How did the game and? A fifth round from Seattle getting the sack we're Taiwan Smith would've been interesting how about Ezekiel Elliott My guys seeking. Off to his worse start in his young career in terms of a three game stretch in terms of not giving a balanced to this office that Dak Prescott is now walking around looking at saying, where's my help now receiving cores dependent on Dak Prescott. So I keep them together in tandem. But when you talk about the office salon and all the issues they had and how poor they are no balance in running game. That Prescott is going to do too much as we use this excuse for Carson. Winston others who struggle when you're trying to do too much. You may make a turnover to you may have an issue. That's the only thing that I could poke a hole that were deck yesterday going on a row against the front running mvp you are in a last possession last second game once again, only because debt Chris was on the field even though deck and play his perfect game here's what I will say to that and and I don't think that I'm not gonNA provide injuries as an excuse, injuries can be an explanation I got I. Don't want to hear about the cowboys offense. Eagles are maligned the dying malign, the rescue, the Washington football team excuse me they have a head coach who's going to one of the toughest battles right now and battling cancer and everybody is going through some things. So we can't even talk about injuries but let's nitpick because that's what you have to do in the game of football right? If Russell Wilson were the quarterback for the cowboys when the cowboys were down twenty eight to thirty. Remember fourth quarter cowboys down eight to thirty. Russell Wilson more than likely would have gone down then scored a touchdown, not a field goal, but we have to nitpick. Big. Time money. So you're going to have to get big time critique. Three seconds left in the game and I'M GONNA show. You ought to clip because Troy Aikman said it's a good thing. He didn't catch this ball yet, Prescott? Wilson Twenty seconds left in the game. If the ball is on target without ahead of them, who knows what would have happened we don't know because it wasn't now because the ball was high troy Aikman is going to say good thing you didn't catch you have to burn a timeout but the not see Alvin Kamara yesterday catch a ball break four tackles get into the end zone. You don't even have to look at Alvin Kamara let me. So you're cedrick Wilson again earlier on in the game. On target. What he does with it now it's early on in the game that Prescott puts US ball on target onto money. Well, no this is another play with a four minute Mark Levin. That Prescott Mrs Tight end just hit the head hit the and maybe you get a touchdown that drive instead of settling for field goal. My issue here is very simple. That Prescott has to be great enough to overcome the the other opticals in the game that Prescott he only got sacked twice. Four Times don't talk to me about the fact that the cowboys offensive line couldn't hold hitter. No Album Smith you know the cowboys defensive end leads the NFL in sack. said. So Russell Wilson was also running for his life. Now on that last possession third three Russell Wilson does a touchdown pass sure he had time but Russell, Wilson's also running for his life. So the fact of the matter is that Prescott is very good. Very. Good quarterback that Prescott is not an elite quarterback Oh, and if you want to win super bowls, you have to be elite. That's what we see even more sellers and this is my second lap as where I'm. Even even a super bowls. The team with the better quarterback wins the game outside of the seahawks beating the broncos twenty thirteen year and outside of the panthers beating the Bronco. Outside of the panthers losing to the broncos. Black, your brow. I'll put Hito you and I didn't even. I'm not even into my personality, which is my struggling I'm in my Dallas's lane, which is your lane. Ready you wit. It's amazing that I asked my God my co-host. What's the metric to tell me that the better quarterbacks one yesterday? He says the eyeball test that's a metric Okay University of Texas. They didn't comes out and says, that's not elite that's not elite, but he had no office line K. You came out to win this Zeke Elliott have fourteen cares for thirty four yard. Dad goes out there and they say, forget the Game Plan Mike McCarthy the hiatus this decided to I'm just GonNa be passed. Happy. They have fifty seven pass a tips they go out there and still Russell Wilson. The front running elite MVP is on all fours praying to the sports gods that he can win another nail biter and if deck is not illegal or whatever you WanNa Call Russell Wilson if he's now bottom Tier Russell Wilson got get it Wilson play out of his mouth core. Deck is not in the neighborhood how the hell does the teen hanging there to the last possession I'll talk about it was six seconds left in a game before you finally realized who was GonNa win that game plays explained to me how? In the neighborhood run less Marcellus, you think here coincidence that Russell Wilson is eleven and two in the last two years and Games cited by eleven and by seven. Go back to. To. A winning percentage. What are we not? GonNa talk about I'm not gonNA talk about Tom. Brady back in two thousand and you're going to a Wilson legacy most recent. Let me. Let me get to my point. Last week even this just did it last? Okay can still wanted to win games decided by seven or less what what. Has Helped you create Russell Wilson ask Laki Russell Wilson ask Tyler Lockett a five eight, hundred, eighty pound receive already told you to the Russel Wilson has became metcalf who sacrificed points yesterday and you're going to tell me that that Prescott who has Michael Gallup Amari cooper CD lamb Ezekiel Elliott has no help yoga and now you're gonNa tell me that Prescott has no offensive line talking about the giants they're super freakazoids star running back has gone. Equals, they have no offensive line don't care about. Right now. Are Jumping around first of all, stop giving me names I need game Ezekiel Elliott have fourteen carries thirty four yards slipping in the end zone to give up safeties. Yeah. I need to do better you need to do better take. So how about the fact that the Dallas? Cowboys, on Defense Twenty fifth ranked now thirtieth and giving up points hold on so they don't have a defense as overrated. Zeke. The first three weeks of this season overrated. Deck making this work with a passing game and to the point of the passing game. What's amazing is when debt I got in the League any rookie you throw them out there to the fire thirteen and three. You know what? The percentage of passes word that year fifty, one percent they are like, oh, we got a good quarterback here next year fifty, two percent. Oh, we got a really good fifty, six percent last year fifty, eight percent and he has a pr year turned the his numbers this year. Sixty five, point, seven percent hold on. What is going on right now in terms of the play calling you know what's happening? Whatever Ezekiel Elliott in this running game is going through is not supporting. Dak. Prescott Debt Prescott is putting his team owners Beck they're lucky they're wanted to because they got deck if. You don't be with these numbers probably. Probably one. Yard rushing attack and a thirtieth rate points allow defense. You know what the adds up to all those sorry teams you talk to act as if the seahawks were grounded pounded yesterday, the seahawks only average what the Russell Wilson was the second leading rusher also, just like Douglas is just like that. You're talking about the defense. The Dallas Defense made up. there. is nothing of. Thirty one points thirty, five points I twenty million point. You just said the MVP is still having nail biters and it why is he having a nail biter? Your last week. Told me how amazing Cam Newton looked how great the patriots when they took them to them. But then when that comes in here and just the same exact thing what any help Aggregate No. No. Credit lease but. Look at things differently here's what I mean by that. We'll talk about this more later Joe Borough my God, he's playing Zeke play will. Played well for a rookie. If don't if. Homes. Put Up Job earls numbers. We wouldn't say, oh, man patch behold played great. Everything is in context, Cam? Newton he didn't play great but Cam Newton played great for a guy who's only and his last eight starch prior to the season the game. Yes I can't play great three, hundred, Ninety, seven knocked dot Cam did play great. But everything is looked at in context that Prescott is playing great but the difference between. What, the asset that. The difference between winning and losing you know this the Blade of grass twenty, four percent a Games decided by three points or less fifty-three percent games decided by seven points or less. Russell Wilson Eleven into in his last seven games in last two years decided by seven points or less. The game is decided by inches and what I'm saying is the difference between extraordinary ordinary of way that little bit extra and I love all that. Thank you for the clays. Here's about. This is their third game together with a new head coach like this is the guy that is out there without any support. And this is the same thing als-. Later he actually plays better and a week later, not a clean game then a Cam Newton and you give them all the credit in the world. Here's the thing I want to push back on you say this I want the numbers I want to push back on you in this respect and we go move on transition. You're a real typical I spent some time in. Dallas right now and I know I know your history you grew up in Dallas right? Absolutely and since your time in Dallas, you've shown tremendous success I can say that big great. You've been amazed person. But instead of coming back to your roots coming back to Dallas you one of those cats that I don't know goes to Austin. Off more go to La and you know it's so funny when I was a Dallas, they talked about guys like you going to lose their way they lose their perspective and you last week sold me on how Great Cam Newton. Was In that game and then we'll. Do the same thing if not more with less and also he gots to get killed him no, no, no, no no. You tell me that Cam Newton has less than that Prescott Cam Newton as Julie. It had more than that Prescott Cam Newton Has Julian. Ataman Gary. I'm not gonNA tell you that. told me he goes. Next to. Dallas to place, you never go back to. With turnovers and bad deepest that told the story in their loss to the seahawks Dak Prescott had two picks fumble but Dallas is deep pits didn't fare any better. They SACRA was four times but also gave up five touchdown passes to the MVP for probably six happened on the other. Two parties the same old cowboys they are and and they are because this for the last fifteen years since I was in Dallas was. The. Last fifteen years fifteen years going back fifteen years. Go. When I was even in Dallas cowboys will what Marcellus had a good quarterback really good quarterback in Tony Romo really good quarterback half stars Oh my God Dez Bryant. You had DeMarco Murray Jason witnessed prime store. You have sizzle but you'd have no substance. So much fizzle but you didn't have any substance. Cowboys have all the stars in the world right now says the. CD Lamb more recuperate. Two first round receivers you gotTa Third Round Receiver. You got a first round running back. You have one of the greatest steals in recent era of quarterback Prescott, but you don't have any substance furthermore. Here's the real issue with the cowboys. Nepotism Strikes Again Cronyism Strikes Again Jerry Jones start hiring the most qualified and stop hiring your homeboys and stop letting your home or higher your homeboys who is the cowboys defensive coordinator I believe it's a man by the name of Mike Nolan not mistaken Mike Nolan. How does he know cowboys that coach Mike McCarthy Mike, Nolan hired Mike McCarthy to be as OC when Mike? Nolan's what the forty niners backing. No sticks the last time. I was a d C. he finished twenty fourth twenty, six, twenty, seven of the defensive coordinator so more and that was in two thousand, twelve, two, thousand, thirteen, Marcellus Halloween God's name does a man who hasn't been a defensive coordinator since twenty twelve and when he wasn't even coordinator in two, thousand, twelve was godawful. Now the defensive coordinator for the cowboys, the same cowboys who have the third. Worst Defense in the National Football League Jerry Jones has built this whole cowboys or not done yet. Cowboys Organization of Nepotism Growth Jason Garrett. Last cowboys head coach soon, longtime scout former cowboy's quarterback Kellen Moore offense coordinator, former cowboy's quarterback start. People that actually should be there instead of sitting here, playing all these favorites Oh. Wow. Who? Already the same old cowboys. Hail Naw for good batteries. Let's go through that. Well, let's first talk about this when you say nepotism. Their Damn. Last time I checked Bill Belichick son is on absolutely is mobile check the greatest coach all time. Oh. Wonder. If you really trying to make a correlation who's on your staff based on relationship success of your franchise, you can't do. Have Electric. Talk. Team in his. Shanahan I. Wonder if that sounds familiar wonder how We've. Never. Let's get into this linebacker beat you because these facts is just going to destroy. Debt Prescott is now being put in a position because of his contract demands even though he already has thirty five million on the table he's like not enough, which is true. You know why? Because when I came to this cowboys team, he was sixty three percent of the office rookie year thirteen and three. That went up to seventy three percent last year in a career year you know what? It is right now because of the lack of support Oh, my God support Sisu. Substance lack of support eighty, three percent by comparison mahomes is seventy percent era rogers degrade is that sixty five percent they are ass conduct as desire. To, throw the ball and kissed a ball and Giselle to say this, go out there and block for yourself to. Help out in a run a game as well. That's what's happening right now because I have nothing else to say about Dak. Prescott. In terms of how he's helping his team and carrying it on his back but let's talk about the cowboys of old because you want to do you want to go like my oh squeeze. Tony Romo Mouse to is they want three out of four championships when you were like. Oh. And then if you WANNA go like a recent school, you have to look at the names to say, are they live up to the billing only Dak? Prescott of all those names Tyron Smith you could say you could say, Zeki Elliott and. History right now on this season who is playing up to their name contract value there's No D. Michael Gallup for sure CD lamb for sure our wait. Really Rolling out the Dallas cowboys when we see that montage of faces and seeing Michael Gallup in the top three, you just ask. Dick and WHO's making him. Making him he is. He is hoping the yesterday we'll beat the receiver yesterday you keep trying to go to the receiving core and which is making my twenty stronger deck is doing it all with his receiving core without the support of the protection without the support of the run game and certainly without to support a dizzying. Okay. I got producers the y'all have. Bring up my graphic from the next block I might have to bring it up that is. The rooks y'All let me know in my ear but I'm GONNA keep talking now Marcella stop with this twisted convoluted narrative me the cowboys have. A top two offense in the NFC by skill position got the office and in a meal offense in the. NFC. But I'm talking about support. I'm GONNA completely undressed support argument for the cowboys have three receivers, three of them, better better than any other receiver in the rest of the NFC, east three of them writing any metric you want to use. It, let's go first round picks. Then let let's do you. Want to tell me some. Of Your emotional opinion that takes me into. Any metric that school metric. One, hundred thirty yards yesterday now because of Dak Prescott because Michael Galvin beating DVD's. He's playing great CD lamb, he evolved in. Say saying name. Before. This ball in right now. Okay I wonder where? We. Because I can. Click, please run these cedrick Wilson Clip not the Dalton Scholz clip run the CEDRICK Wilson I wanna see Cedrick Wilson and what he did not that got what Cedrick Wilson did because that Prescott. Marcellus Marcellus. Washes. I wonder where? Credit. Credit. Pixabay. Thank you. Thank you that press got Marcel appoint no my point is the one. that. Prescott have four, hundred, seventy, two yards yesterday wonder who helped him do that? Forty percent of those yards yards after catch just what they all do. They all do. The Wilson, he had three hundred fifteen yards yesterday twenty, three percent of those yards after catch. Perfect don't tell me that has no help forty percent of decks George. Help Russell Wilson Twenty percent storage guests came from help Dak out to Russell Wilson one, hundred, fifty yards. But after without the AC by forty yards, all that has right now don't discredit cedrick Wilson Amari Cooper Michael Gallup. Forty percent of his yards came from help like that can't be glued to your notes. I know you talked about no. Eagles. Even, look into no sounds like you are talking about the eagles or something. Else. Not Dallas and deck deck is the quarterback deck is going to make receivers. Look great deck is hoping that his ally makes him look greater deck is needing his running game to support him, and that is hoping that his defense and give them more opportunity. So they could go on the field. All I'm saying is you keep giving me Russell Wilson. And then comparable stats from deck and there's some metrics Dak is doing better knowing. No mention winners and no keep glowing over Russell Wilson. You can't keep slide deck especially where Russell Wilson is nail biting at the end of the game to beat same quarterback Glenn no help as still took. Every game is a nail biter. Smart your. Initially because you acting. Like like you play ten years lead you went to Columbia and you acting like a fan every game is a nail biter every freaking one of the. Seven Point Oh. Really. English herbal. Two Percent Marcellus I'm sorry. Games or seven points or less the differentiator that you have to respect and all I'm saying if you give them the proper support clues, the chemistry, I'm not saying that name Ezekiel is amazing as it. You'll be an amazing. This year can we stop? He hasn't Has the old bet anything this year of whether injuries or just. But how long will you make excuses? The forty niners they are nobody this the third game brother I'm not going off a forty niners last year success. I'm not even making excuses I'm talking about a chemistry gelling process that I'll patient enough to watch and observe sales like you're not. You'RE GONNA win indictments before you have all the as not. I'm coming with indictments coming with this I have seen this story before I you lifted because you played for the cowboys. I was in the stands for so I watched it. I have seen this story before Tony. Romo has what to playoff wins Three playoff wins the cowboys with Romo were very, very good. They would win the division at times they will lose it at Times Dak Prescott. He has what to playoff wins the cowboys would that. Could I'm not saying that but good is the enemy of great. All I'm saying is deck as the quarterback of the cowboys has never had a losing season down as the quarterback of the cowboys as one division twice came as second other two times. Deck is now looking at his future next five games. Guess what they have the NFC least three of them, the Cleveland Browse and Arizona Cardinals, they should be able to make some. Hey, Gordon Tours stop slightness. Problem though this is my point. Here's what the cowboys are going to do cowboys WANNA whoop the browns. They don't look the giants that Prescott, his thirteen and three against the giants and the Redskins. He's twenty eight and twenty three now versus everybody else going GonNa work the browns. Likely going to lose to cardinals then they're going to walk the Washington football team. The cowboys are going to look up and they're going to four and three Oh. Yeah. Cowboys a four, three, four first placement of vision. They would beat everybody they're supposed to be, and they would have lost to the teams are supposed to lose two or problems. Marcellus. If you only beat the teams are supposed to be and lose to the team supposed to lose to you will perennially. Be. Eight. To ten and six. He'll go into the playoffs depending how sorry you're division and you'll either win the wild card game or you'll lose a wildcard game. That's what the cowboys have done. The last two decades not even making this up look at the data. It also supports it I just WANNA. Make sure that you understand your a little too far in force to see these trees I think that Dallas connection how you grew up and it was miserable for you. I don't know what the hell happened but when I tell you a team that is one and two has five games that are winnable going in front of them. That is eight. You told me they go four and three I, there's eight games right now this team is GonNa be six and to mark my words when we go to the halfway stretch and we're GONNA have this. Going to be six in two and four coming up at the top of our that was difficult. We're not done talking about deck. Oh, here we go. Again we'll tell you if we prove anything in Sunday's loss but I. winced eagles and NACHOS are still willing to season.

Carson, wishes is now being looked at as less than the parts around him and that's no way no place a leader of your team of franchise quarterback guy'd make a thirty, two, million dollars third-most cast this year in the NFL. Should be looked at by his peers. So yeah, you should a bitch him why? Because we got a quarterback going out there. Throwing the ball forty seven times. For, only two hundred, twenty, five yards for everything. We said about Russell Wilson bitterly and Dak be great to elite what the Hell can we say about Carson Wentz. Right now getting out played by Joe Borough in his third NFL gain. There's no way that you can look at this and say anything else but it's time for you get a TV time out if your car wentz Carson Wentz is playing bad football right now. tweeted it I'll say it again I'll say when my chest Carson Winston play in bad football right in I'm not gonNA give you an excuse but I am going to give you an explanation bagels are Carson Wentz no favours at all whatsoever same on Doug Peterson who say on how we Roseman people both people I think very highly of but Marcellus you spent the last twenty minutes telling me about how that Prescott has no help. Let me show you what no help looks like. Broken Wings full screen. Please last segment. I gave re Asterix now just going to give you a little bit of logic a little bit of reasons Oh. Let's Talk About Eagles receiving core alshon Jeffery hurt inactive Jalen Reagan's first round pick inactive mark is good when he's a speedster they traded for during the draft he opted out Dallas got or got hurt in the first quarter he played six plays. Tucson's asking got hurt in the second quarter he played twenty eight plays thirty one percent of the snaps take away the full screen. The Eagles leading receivers yesterday. We're Greg Ward High School quarterback, I'm just college quarterback play quarterback converses Houston. The Anti Burnett, they activated him from practice squad on Saturday night the game was played on Sunday Ladies and Gentlemen John Hightower a fifth round pick and JJ. Are Sega whiteside a young man who has ten career catches and his two year career. Okay. So if you WANNA talk about no help, that's what no help looks like. Carson Wentz playing bad football I'm. Not. Making. An excuse Carson wentz on providing an explanation. If you WANNA talk about this question though you WanNa Bench you WanNa Bench Carson Wentz for jalen hurts and Jalen hurts to do what? What this? What to expect I think I'm not trying to further further hurt Jalen. Hurts or how does he get her? Okay. Let's talk about how Carson which I'm not. Talking about physically what is Jalen hurts known for Again College College Football I'm not GonNa Disregard Your College football but I covered it as well. Jalen hurts is known for two things mental toughness. Okay. He transferred from he got beat out then he came back and he saved just team in. Alabama. Then he transfers to takes his team to the College Football playoff. Well, heisman finalist he's known for mental toughness what Else, does he known for his elusive ability? His running ability? That is what Jalen hurts is known for they want hurts isn't known right now is being a proficient quarterback ask anybody you ask Alabama fans when I was Oklahoma sooner fan he's not no for that. So you want Jalen hurts in a game with John Hightower Greg Ward deontay Burnett Jr Sega Wild side, and you think there's GonNa be a different. US You against you to tell the difference because you've been telling me Raven over how last year he guys that came off to three guys they were quarterbacks here here Carson Wentz. undefeated in December and took the team on his back and without a bad player over an illegal hit of course, I would've roll off into the sunset. Maybe how did that play out? You told me now the same guys or lack of Same guys is now an issue win last year you gave him praise for that. Make some sense of dot show. Now here's the thing when you're a franchise quarterback, we have because you are we winning in spite of you or are we not winning at all because of you and that's what Carson Wentz has to deal with do not keep trying to play Wacko all the issue. Well, don't put daily Hersi because he offers. Oh. My God no receivers 'cause you're not going to make condense sits of this. There is evaluation every position no matter what we come into in the locker room we can win we can lose. We have individual meetings we have position meetings and then those position meetings what can you say that's positive to Carson wentz right now I don't see it. So we see now is a quarterback and his confidence at all time low therefore, his performance is that an all time low carson wentz outside of maybe kirk cousins this year has been the most underachieving quarterback and buy some metrics. Thank you. This year I salute you have to stop the bleeding. This is a situation where if you want to stop the hiccups you've got to scare you gotta wake him up. You gotTa shock them. You can't just let them continue breathing as normal and expect them to stop making this. Here's why I disagree I disagree because regardless of how ugly it looks it looks bad. I've seen every eagle played in the first several eagles getting back in two thousand thirteen. But I've seen every eagles game for the last seven years all all because I was in some and then I've been watching the rest. This is as bad as Carson Wentz his vote including his rookie year, which was bad. But here's the thing in point. If if the eagles were half a game back and we're and we're to win one, would we be tripping know? So my thing is Marcellus the Eagles Tiller, only a half game back in the NFC. You'RE GONNA bench. Carson Wentz who is bad. I will continue to iterating. He is playing bad the but if you're going to bench Carson Wentz though you're a half game back as not very wise mu, the eagles made their bed. Here's why and I'm a I'm a preacher on your point four second. y'All chose to pay Carson wentz thirty two and a half million dollars annually y'all chose those still to not give him any help. Josh Allen is bald and right now Baldwin who he acquire in the off season two phone Stefan dig kind of is ball and right now here in the off season. The Andrei Hopkins Andre. But you got Carson Wentz who paid you will pay didn't pay. Marcellus. You Pay Carson Wentz and yet. UK back into the season with Alshon with an older aging Sean Jackson you and you didn't even do anything to help him. He's still playing bad. Yes. But y'all quit yourselves. In this position, you draft eight her second round when this is the best receiving draft class, we've seen the last two decades. To Bench Carson Wentz right now is dumped for two reasons number one. Is Not tailing hurts got any help out there. So what's GonNa Happen You put Jalen Hers Air. He sucks now, what's your move Marcellus here? Here's my move is the fact that I'm not gonNA look at the GM and say what number do you wear? You don't wear number eleven I'm not going to look at the moves or the lack thereof of move this say. Its own you I'm looking at Carson Winston. I don't give a damn what I put you in in terms of situations and circumstances play yourself out of them. If you're going to be a franchise quarterback if you're not, you're not a franchise quarterback, you just came up here the Dallas cowboys which tied for first offenders. Issue and on top of that, that press guy was having another career year backing up career last year in his own evaluation. But then it's going to be like mercy rule when it comes to. It makes no sale I've said and I will say it again Carson Wentz playing bad. That is not mercy. I said that Prescott is playing great put everything in context but here's my thing you look at the Shawn. Watson their own three right now you're actually their record is worse than eagles. So awesome about a bad quarterback Carson wentz right now is playing back but what sean he ain't got no help. You look a Matthew Stafford, the course of his career I'm don't Love Matthew Stafford I know does love him I. I'm not a Matthew Stafford crush kind of guy. But as the Mash Matthew Stafford defendants, he hasn't have any help around him. He's only had one thousand yard rusher in his career. I think it might have been Reggie Bush back in like, I, don't know twenty thirteen or something like that but that being said. The Eagles y'all major. I'll bet. y'All. Know we gotTA Laze spider is having nightmares and there's only one of them on his team and you're the reason for Carson. wentz. If you can't, you can't one day say oh, I could play in spite of was around me and the next they say I can't play because it was Don't take that. Let me ask you this. Marcella. Samantha's if you are a runner if you're a marathon runner and you go out there and you break the world record, I'm not going to be mad at you. If you don't break the world record again or if you fall short carson, Wentz last year was the only quarterback in NFL history if I'm not mistaken on top of the dome. Four thousand dollars with no five hundred yard receivers he broke a figurative speaking record I'm not gonNA. Be completely disgruntled I will say with real quick with Carson Wentz if he can't do it again but also mind you he's also down three offensive linemen plus autos receivers, and that is del Vicky Eliana what the hell happened. You weren't training you getting tattoos I don't know what the hell happened to you. I'm looking at it like but deck still putting up career numbers stack is still puts on his back. Carson Wentz is stepping on his own team's fingers. Here's the thing. You keep saying it's like this three three-game sample size TJ came on here. To let me say it again the last two years. Since Carson Wentz was VP candidate under five hundred course West right now is under the Mendoza Line it's hers a completion percentage has that fifty nine percent. You know who is hovering around Trubisky who got bitch? I told you about her cousins and to Wayne Haskins and you can't thirty two and a half million dollars. Can you stop playing game with ally? We're in overtime Carson Wentz led them to three drives that ended in a punt. Carson Wis.. It all matters, context matters and Matters guess what Carson Winston underachiever to them. If you want to do that unless lead if you WANNA, do that. Let's do this. Carson Wentz his last two years to the full season. He's fifteen sixteen in one. Fifteen who? One. That Prescott last year. Nine and eleven. So if you want to go there, let's Day is now. Just last year. To. Ask the same amount number. Eight last year last year he has one win this year. Nine and then he lost nine ten at the. Theft teams sixteen in one respect. The same thing well, which one is in career games and keeping his team in it and plans toe to toe with. And what's one is losing to Jober who just got picked a couple months ago ourselves we stopped that they both lost to the rams. They both lost to the Ram. Sir they both like what what are we? What are we talking about here is? You losing his how you're performing in the wins and losses I. Don't understand what you missed in NFL evaluation process but they grab you. They don't always grab. Let's talk about the fact that they didn't lose because Peterson decided to play for a tie with under twenty seconds left in overtime Doug Peterson decided to punt rather than try a sixty four yard few war or have Carson wentz attempt to get the first down to the Game Peterson said he didn't want to give the Bangla sort field but earlier today changes to and a little bit playing listening. In that situation now you go from fourth and seven to four and twelve. It's a tough thing. I mean again, looking back, you probably put it in your quarterbacks hands to to win the game. You Know Zach was having a decent second half and some of the guys and you know you look back on it and you go. Okay let's let's trust. Let's trust those guys and put it in their hands before twelve is not only to overcome that you know they've gotTa Take Eleven guys doing the right thing. Marcellus I know how I feel but are you okay Doug Peterson playing four tie. Play. Hello of not comfortable with my coach going out there say, Hey, if nothing happened today nothing happened today roll the dice but you know what this is is. A greater story is being told and not enough people are paying attention to the erosion of confidence is contagious. People have to remember that when confidence starts to go it other stay in your body it affects all those around you trying to pull in the same direction look at now Doug Peterson confidence that went it starts to enroll with his quarterback which affected in a row with his kicker, and then now it's a in him. It's here's how he goes about his business. Today one that Super Bowl you know at the two thousand Seventeen Doug Peterson did he wrote a book? The name of that book talk to me fearless. Talking about how I'm fearless in crunch situations. Critical moments are roll the dice, and that's why he went home last night woke up this morning and realized I have lost my way but I'm not even blaming Peterson. You know why? Because he lost his way because he was directed to lose his way by his quarterback by continue it to invest in by. That is a depreciating asset at the moment I just say cut. I'd say trait Carson West I think it up well hell of a time out and just scare the hiccups out of him. Because right now we are teetering on the border of the hits like a dude who just doesn't know is way it's affected everything. Now you in a situation where you have a kicker, whose may a sixty one yard or game winner against giant three years ago who made a? Fifty four yard or in this same game, you don't even give him a stroke at why because you don't believe in your quarterback which makes you believe your kicker which makes you not believe in yourself. The more I've gotten out of football the longer I've been out of football. The more I. Realize this phrase I'm about to utter a this here players are a reflection of their coach if you're coaches scared. Scared. Are the same person who ran the phillies special. Biggest stage of the biggest game of the biggest moment of your career Doug Peterson, you had a tight end and Trey Burton catch flip pass from your running back and flip the ball to Nick foles Indians Oh the same Doug Peterson who ran the phillies special against the Bonte New England patriots. As. Too scared to play to win against the Bengals a Bengals team that won two games last year and no because all. Of course, kick the field goal you said Jake. Kelly. It hit a sixty one yard against the I was at that game coronary end zone. I was watching it with the team mates old team mate at the time. He kicked a sixty one yard Jay. Kelley it's done net. Let him take the swing sixty four yarder yes. He misses the bengals get the ball at the forty seven yard line. They got about twenty seconds and change to get twenty yards. But at least you go down swinging Marcellus what do I tell us? You play to win a gain you don't play the tie well, not tied a bengals. The. pushback on that when you say that that's not absolute if your team is doing well, if your team is on a win streak, if your team has a quarterback, you believe in there's opportunity where you want to play for tie because you don't WanNa loss. So what what a tires? Accentuate. Whatever you're going to if you're winning a ties, not go kill you. If you're losing a tie is going to kill you because you still don't have a winning formula. You have not reversed course you had not changed the flow. So this situation know who you're dealing with North that Carson Wentz is starting to lose confidence and team around you is starting to lose confidence. That's the perfect prime opportunity to roll the dice through some you say. Carson. Wish you WanNa talk about that but I'm here to tell you what you learn about the game of football is mind over matter brother I don't care how big fastest growing you are. If it's not working up here between the ears, you have an issue and right now he had the perfect moment to say, let me inject some confidence in his team. Let me get that good feeling going. That's when you're supposed to do it and Doug Peterson lay flat. I don't WanNa talk about it. This is how mandate. Peterson this fourth twelve. Don't Roll Carson Wentz out there. He already been bad fourth and twelve. He could take a sack he pick and he could throw an incompletion there's not on Carson Winston Peters New the head coach of course wants has been terrible. PUT IT in the hands of somebody who's been great hurts historically great. No. The Kicker Take Kelly you. Put it in his leg. Let them take off kicked a sixty four yard because to Marcella, says point if you make that and you're wanting to your now tied for first or again half game back in the division depending on how you look at it. Now sure Dope Peterson you're only a half game back sitting ghetto to in one but the same Doug Peterson and had the guts to run the phillies special against the New England patriots in the Super Bowl is the same doug? Peterson. For Tie against the Bengals and the Eagles Fan I can't it used to believe in this quarterback. That's why he did coming up. Lebron is headed to the Ted NBA finals. We'll find out why king actually has more to lose than win against the heat next week for yourself. Back to speak for yourself, let's move on to the NBA where Lebron James Lead the Lakers to the finals for the first time in the decade finishing with a triple double including sixteen point four quarter. Making his trip to the finals where he is three and six or. So it makes sense that ahead of his match up with the heat, he said quote right now it don't mean. Unless I get it done joined now by Fox NBA analysts, slick of euchre but I. I is abroad have more to win or lose in the finals. Shout out to the king first and foremost for ten NBA finals month on rapper over. Out to the home, let's let's keep it real man Lebron has more to lose than win right now, and again as Lebron Fan I had to go back all weekend and I was thinking about it. I said Oh hold on now he made it but boy he better winning let's look at the Braun in the finals Oh, seven first time in the finals only been a League for few years at that point you lose to the spurs what does I got three MVP three future hall of Famers in Hall of fame coach Okay have the Mavericks I'm a comeback to that would come back to that. Again as far as four future hall of Famer. Hall of fame head coach. Then you lose three times to the warriors. They got three future hall of famers how depend on how you want to count it hall of fame head coach all of those losses you can kind of be like, okay you know what? This is excusable. But if the bronze somehow loses today, he led by Jimmy, Butler. Even, top seventy player of all time that is completely indefensible. Now, let me get back to this mavericks clauses. The reason the Mavericks Lost Lebron had was so bad one them because he lost a Mavericks Dirk. A top five. Of all time top fifteen player by my imagination. But I'm from Dallas I know unbiased. The reason is Lebron played terribly. It's not that he lost the Mavericks as the fact that Hell he lost a maverick. So the problem here Marcellus slick is very, very simple. Greats. Have those five, six tips as you look at it whether you want to look at Magic Corinne Jordan Koby but by getting four, that's really not a huge different from three. So I think Lebron doesn't have more to lose any does have to win however I do think he is going. Never. Knew you were out there playing not to lose. That's the which, of course he has more to win if he goes out there and plays and wins the championship with the. Lakers. At the drought, the Lakers, the great though lovely Los Angeles Lakers are back into finals because of the King of course, he has more win. Let's talk about this. First of all. I'll chose protests like Lebron's Ben Great into finals in terms of win loss column in terms of winning percentage you know he's three and six in the final so. It's not like you go upset the apple cart if he loses again, that'd be three and seven. However, if he wins then that you got four and you go into rarefied air wiser rarefied because go from three to four. You take away a lot of guys you start entering this shack category and then you start getting towards that Kobe and that Jordan category. But the reason why it makes so much sense for Lebron go out there and make sure he wins again as being. Lebron is trying to win this fight on the scorecards. He can't win it by knockout and we know he's fighting Michael Jordan the goat I think Lebron is to go but I'm not about to have a barbershop argument what you guys but I know how can silence you in department shop if Lebron James goes out there for his third time would differ franchise three different franchises and not only goes out there and win the championship. But let's win the finals MVP. No one has ever done net Georgia's win to perfection argument six. And finals and no game seven. That's how he wins it. What quitter bow about sentence get out to barbershop Lebron has to go out there affect the scorecards. This is going to be a twelve rounder if it's the Brian James He has to take into deep water and how does he do that by winning another championship? Would a team that we're used to seeing being great but of late has not been great but the king here he has a lot to win in this situation. Now let me explain how the media works because the media is going to determine the narrative on whether he wins or loses. Can we agree on that? I, mean ultimately it's going to be decided by everybody watching the media coming into the season I. Went Back to check because I know that people had really devalued the Lakers in spite of Anthony Davis Lebron James being there but the anticipation was. That, they were not going to win the western conference. final. Western. Conference title much less win the NBA. Championship the Great Sam Smith had them as the fourth seed, The New York, times eight experts. There was only one who had the Lakers. Even playing in the Western Conference finals and that was losing to the clippers. The sporting news had them as the fourth seat ESPN and their one hundred experts. Had them as the fifth seed in the Western Conference so This is how the media works when something extraordinary happens when when the media predicts something and it doesn't happen there proved wrong somebody must have done something extraordinary in order for that to be upset. That's the view. Of Lebron James, simply getting to the finals at this point. So two more sell US point like he's three and six in the fines if he's three and seven in the finals. So what he wasn't coming close to to to Jordan anyway. The last dance put to bed the idea crush. The idea that Lebron James is in the goat conversation. If he goes now four and six, any wins a third title with a thirteen everybody's GonNa look at that and say, well, Kareem abdul-jabbar didn't do that Shaquille O'Neal didn't do that only two teams to championships. Michael Jordan had six out of six. But that was all in one place. He will suddenly have something that no superstar has ever done and that is going to relight that conversation about goat, which is something that as of right now is dead and gone that's what he has to gain if he doesn't win. Okay. He's just where he is now guy who can get to the finals all the time but not necessarily win. Slick. You said things I agree with some things. Me and morsels like peanut, butter, and Jelly. New but I don't even know what the dissect but I'm happy and real quick slit. I look good sandwich make. In, Real Quick Lebron is in the conversation right now. Obviously, this is the last green but stance with a little bit. I mean the last dance was phenomenal. But the last dance had some extra theatrics. Here's what I will say. Well, the has done is utterly impressive I mean. Jordan, did crazy. Obviously, you go six for six but he always there with Phil Jackson, Lebron, Wherever Lebron, goals whatever Lebron touches like might as it turns to gold. Literally how you go to a chip with Tyler Lou then you go with culture then you come back with Vogel, but that's neither here nor there let me say this in a way that everybody can understand. All remember that Game Super Mario Super Mario Brothers. We used used to just be on the. Original, of course, but remember the final stage, the final level you had to beat Bowser you have to that was that was it bows thousand worth tournament right here thousand bows Michael Jordan and Lebron is playing with one life left. If Ron Loses his finals, he will be disqualified from the goat conversation like if you were to lose with one life and. Super Mario that's it. You gotTA turn the game. That's it him too little. Bro Hand the big little sister. Hannah. Takes big sister. But if Lebron beats this level, he's still just closer to beating browser because Lebron gets his fourth. He's just closer to catching Jordan but it's not as though he's going to beat bells or beat Jordan on this level. So. As I, look at it us as very simple Lebron can disqualify himself from the conversation right here, and now sure he's still in the conversation but if Lebron lose to the heat completely inexcusable, you can lose to the Spurs. No seven. That's fine. You can lose to the with Kawai Plus pop plus the big three you can lose to Steph and K. B, you can lose to Steph and clay and dream on. But if you lose the tyler hero these cold but what is he twenty if you lose to Bay Amata Bio Rockwell because he Nigerian but let's be real if you lose Jimi buckets congratulations but jemmy buckets is not as if he's he's a ten fifteen time all star it's inexcusable and indefensible. Till I, know why you're doing this because you don't Wanna use the word asterisk. On An. Ounce network but the reality is you're not taking into account the bubble. The bubble creates a built in excuse for not excuse rationale as to why Lebron James Win win this if Miami Heat wins it with a young team. Well, it's because the bubble it's it's more of an AA atmosphere, tyler hero and Bam Otto Bio and these guys who are closer to playing in a tournaments than they are in playing the NBA finals have an advantage not a disadvantage you have Eric's. Pollster who not only knows Lebron James Up and down but has a huge advantage over Frank Vogel who's never been in these deep waters before by the way Anthony Davis never been in these deep waters before Oh, he's got the oldest team that was supposed to be the fourth or fifth seed in the Western Conference and by the way Lebron James Thirty five. So what should we really expect from him at thirty five? I, just feel that are so many things that we that. Anybody who is Lebron Acolyte can point to and say, well, it's amazing that he got to the Western Conference or the finals with this particular squad and this team we never expected that. You mentioned the finals in two thousand and seven when he lost to the Spurs and yes. Nobody expected them to win, but he also didn't take hit for that. When he was in Miami, he was expected to win because those teams were built and he took a to win championships not just one but not just five to six. and. So when they didn't win in two thousand and eleven, he took a massive hit because he was expected when he won in Cleveland to over the seventy three win warriors not expected not expected to come back from three one was given all sorts of accolades. It's only when he's expected to win is there a price paid for Lebron James and right now in spite of everything? I don't look at this matchup and say Lebron James in the media's is was expected to win a championship maybe as of right now because it's the Miami Heat but in the big picture, he was never expected to even be at this point. The Bron James Only Beats Michael Jordan and the goat conversation if he kills them. By a death of a thousand paper cuts you gotta remember he can't not out Jordan because Michael. Jordan was perfect. Even if he took a break in retirement six zero, no game said is not gonNA to one hit a quitter day but a death by thousand paper because if you Lebron, you start to say we have more points and more rebounds Ham more sis my pr was right there if not higher depends on how you finishes his career noble of trips to the finals number of trips to the finals with different organizations, number trips to the. Finals if you piece like, that's how you kill Michael Jordan, you got a BOA constrictor. Round. Start to hold on, we'll see if the goat the king can do that coming up the bears behind more nick foles heroics bring in other Auto Sam. See what he'll say about what the decision to bitch trip bisky look like. Just speak for yourself. Welcome back to speak for yourself. Let's move to the bears who bets struggling mischievous Sunday for Nick foles to start the second half. Tocado was down by sixteen points the Falcons but falls led them on three scoring drive in the fourth quarter I got the win no surprise today head coach Matt Nagy announced. The balls will be the bear started this week against. India. Well. Loving. Better than one out Joe but to. Go had to bring him a big brother former bears linebacker there for four years to weigh in on this conversation Marcella. So you up I agree with Matt Nagy's decision to bench trubisky Nope nope. nope. Don't like this decision at all. This is what players always talk about when they start to say they hate the game because of the business side of the game, the politics and I hate when the politics are on the tip of. Your lip. But you try to hide under performance and that's what I'm seeing right now thinly veiled Oh, I had a gut feeling Matt Nagy said and try to use it on performance when really is just a politics at play don't you dare coats come out there to an undefeated quarterback this season and is having a bad game I give you that and all of a sudden say this is the moment we should transition and play The Nick, foles card, daily plan, the car. So early for understand what Nick foles is there to do push push Mitch Trubisky and obviously be there in case of emergency break glass Nick foles comes out and save the day. But right now you WANNA use this as the moment. So what's going to happen is the sports guys are going to say Karma will come get you matt, Nagy, when you come back in that locker room and You start to tell the guys I guys you know we're going to go forward nick foles right now they're going to look around and say missiles kind of bowling coach. Mix, Mitch was undefeated this year. That's how you treat. You treat a player when he's playing well and hasn't lost a game just yet. Oh, and you'RE GONNA start to lose the belief from your team in you as the head coach be careful if you met nagy right. This one is tough for me I. Got Love for Mitch. I have more love for Nick but let's go with facts over feelings. Matt Nagy made the right decision and it's not because Mitch Trubisky was at fault but ultimately, hindsight is twenty twenty they won the game but I'm not even GonNa go because that's a little bit set in jest here's what I will say Mitch Trubisky was not going to. Lose the Chicago bears the game but nick foles won the Chicago bears the game understand there's a delineation between that Mitch wasn't GonNa be the reason we're fault. He was thirteen for twenty one touchdown on a day like he wasn't playing bad statistically speaking but nick foles came in there and played great falls threw three touchdowns one interception. But if you watch the game that one interception actually was a touchdown both. The receiver and the defensive all possess the ball into the end zone. So you can't even really fault him for that. Here's the thing we have to remember. Mitch has not been playing bad and I also put a lot of blame on Matt Nagy for the struggles of Mitch trubisky since he has entered into the League but uh In Mitchell's last eleven drives again, essentially four quarters of play. The bears have put I believe maybe ten points total nick foles goes into near touchdown touchdown touchdown for whatever reason mit falls came in there and jump start at the team. I don't know what it was. I don't believe defensive players start playing harder when they see a quarterback go in at didn't happen for me. I. Saw Nick Foles replaced Michael Vick. As Mark Sanchez replace Nick foles when foles got hurt I didn't play any harder I don't know what it is, but the bears won the game. The bears are three and no one of six teams in the NFL. This three you know if Mitch would have finished that game off, they'd be sitting in two and one I can't be mad at the decision. You play to win the game you play to win the game what has Mitch Trubisky done. He's won games nick false came back Emmanuel and I love you do I really do but Nick Foles Falls back from sixteen point deficit what a Mitch Trubisky do we. Come, back from a sixteen point. Three three three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. To win the game, what did miss? Do we one through three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to win the game? Do I think they posted Aggie made the right decision I absolutely do not, and here's why similar to Marcella said it's almost like. You're dating somebody. You know you're not really committed to him, but you wanted to bring him out you by taking them out. No I, don't want that man if I'm not the guy, not the guy don't tell me if I'm Mitch Trubisky don't tell me we have a competition winning competition all of a sudden I make a little tiny mistake. I throw an interception right everybody big and I was sitting on bed right? Don't put that veil in front of me. That does two things number one that kills the quarterbacks confidence and like Martha's talked about earlier. This piece of man what two plays and Locker Room really say is Mitch Really Our guy is GonNa throw toothpicks. WE'RE GONNA go back to Mitch who are we what their identity going to be i? Here's my. The. then. So you can't question the coach's decision because they won the game like as ultimately that you can I mean if you leave and Mitch and the setting the two and one today would be like man probably should've went to foles, but we don't have to ask ourselves at because he put in a foles and he made the right decision Mitch shouldn't have been benched based on his performance. But. Ultimately if you were watching the Game Mitch was not about to come back from that game again, let me get more specific because I uttered it a little bit wrong last time. Mitch's had his previous eleven drives Mitch's yielded ten points and three turnovers in four quarters of play. He hasn't been on right now now to my brothers point, the Chicago bears have been looking for the door. How can we get out of here I? Want to mess it let's get out to my brothers point. There's a Kogyo players have been looking at Mitch out the door but ultimately, if the bears leave Mitch in, they don't win Nick foles. If there was a six man of the year ward football, Nick foles would win it. He comes in and he has the greatest relief quarterback of all time. Now I disagree I, don't think they should start nick foles again this week that's where I disagree I would go out and start Mitch because you're starting to close this week and now Nick foles performance bad. Now, you win a world to hurt. But as for yesterday now, with the bear sitting at three hundred, seventy percent chance, you make the playoffs if you know I'm not mad at it all the. Time right there because I know you don't believe a damn word you just said it doesn't matter how we we love. We went what the Hell's a team have to do a winning chemistry. You don't WanNa respect but that is let me give it to you and your world you are up here arguing right now that a bad decision that got good results is something. You. Should support something you should champion never I can tell you ain't got no keys audio. Let me tell you this. You cannot go out there and put Popov's too bad decisions. Even if good results give you an example, you're on your way to work you know you're running late and there's that red light and you're like Oh, this is a bad decision but I'm running. And you get through you get to work on time and everything works out good result but that's still a bad as is keep doing it and see what happens to you Emmanuel Acho. So let's do the real apples to apples comparison of these two quarterbacks because Otto cookbooks I started learning last twenty four starts. Let's talk about Nick Foles who's been eleven thirteen and those last twenty four I seventeen, seven for Mr Bisky interesting. How about let's talk about how they're performing us down interceptions Oh twenty, three, and eighteen for. Nick Foles, but thirty one and eighteen for Mitch Trubisky. Oh, you'd think players don't have google. You players understand that hey, the politics are at play to the point where it's clouding the vision of those upstairs and Nagy was just a pawn in the process really trying to go through with the marching orders that will politically driven to get Mr Bisky out of the situation where they can have leverage to go forward. I've seen happen too many times and they use it against undefeated quarterback who actually had a better win percentage. Foes of recent history. So make it make sense to be sought joke but I don't see how you can. I. Love. We're talking about here. We're talking about quarterbacks email you something earlier about quarterbacks being the is success and and understand that we're talking about Mitch Trubisky Biscuit. Falls well, let me tell you what no one is talking about. Nobody's talking about this. I'll, go bears. BACK IN TWO THOUSAND EIGHTEEN I played on the team back in two thousand eighteen. This defense was a top twenty defense of all. They were not been about break defense. Then we're not GONNA banned we're not gonNA break. We are the best defense probably ever argue. Twenty nine in the defense progressed. Now Twenty twenty, the defense has been very much. Let's hope for a good play. Hope for an interception. Hope for drop touchdown, help our when games. So the real issue has nothing to do with the quarterback Matt if Mr Bisky back there on the ball and match your if you're Nicole. Back, they're throwing the ball. This defense needs to step up and be what is advertise. Yes. There Allen across the board Danny Trevathan. Roquan Smith. Akeem. Hit Khalil Mack Robert Quinn Eddie Jackson poplar the list goes on and on. But the fact of the matter is this defense is a plane up to their standards admittedly. So before we start asking blame and. Making Mitch Trubisky, the scapegoat, let's look at the defense that's not living up to par they're not performing as advertised. I don't care about the defense like Marcella said, that's vessels. We're up here to make TV. Popcorn popcorn and desert. And Marcel say let me tell you about this before I have to let you go. Marcellus is the king of cooking books Marcellus Nick Foles is eleven and seven in the last four seasons. Marcellus had to go back to twenty fifteen when Nick foles went four and seven is a starter granted. I gotTA. Grab apples to apples twenty four starts you last twenty four no, no, no. No. I'm the one grabbing the apples because I'm the sous-chef real chef. Okay. You don't want Cook enough here. Coming up in our big story Prescott through for nearly five hundred yards cowboy still lost. We'll tell you if you proved anything Sunday. Next. To Watch be for yourself presented by Hyundai Marcellus Wiley. Manual. Back to Phil Far big story. Dak Prescott. Water around here for nearly five hundred yards against the seahawks Sunday deck had three touchdown passes. Could the same game winning here from last week? Due to? Potential game pass in the end zone. Still Win for the SEAHAWKS. Cowboys are now wanting to start to seize. That couve anything in seahawks. Now he didn't. But but here's why didn't we know this back Prescott that cross costs a good quarterback great a minute. What our from great deficit play the damn game between. Here's what I'm mean. Hitting here's what I mean. I got do last year top five in passing yards top-five and passing touchdowns cowboys, nate. Where's that press right now top two in passing yards. ooh Up there in passing touchdowns. Wanted to here it is. Here's a full screen like don't even listen to my words look at the numbers completion percentage last year thirteen percent this year seventeen percent. Last year passing touchdown four this year he'll get up there don't worry about that twelfth I'm not trying to shave deck but does That Prescott is going to fill up the stats sheet fill up the box score and the cowboys are going to end up seven and nine, eight, nine, seven, ten in six depending on how to coin lands that day that improve anything not this isn't an indictment on debt but to prove something means I need to learn something new seen something I didn't already know that press got lost to another playoff team congratulations last year he beat. One playoff team the Philadelphia Eagles, the eagles made the playoffs again, I will tell you again because the eagles also beat the cowboys this year, the rams are likely going to make the playoffs, the seahawks or clearly gonNa make the player that Prescott lost both of them. The Falcons are not going to make the playoffs two, thousand, zero, one, three just lost the Chicago bears who had to bring in relief cowboys beat them by one point. What did you? Learn. You gotTA, start lying to say you learned anything I just can't wait to hear these live first of all you keep conflicting I didn't say I learned the new deck was great and he proved it when he was great, you can do the same thing and prove that that's actually a reality. You Wear Nice suits every damn day to the point where every day you prove that you weren't. I don't need to see you where we're zoot you gotTA Andre Three thousand. You know what he proved that he could dress I get it. You can do the same thing and it's just so people are late to the Party Otto, you're late to the party. I'm just bored overed income up. Oh, you board of a guy who's wanted division twice came second to other two years. Oh, you're bored of a guy who has the number one office last year number one office issue all your born of a guy who was a one man army because if you wanNA look I can. Issue is all around him. He has a new head coach who still do an integration office. Offense. Then you look at the situation, the running game, Zeke Elliot thirty four yards, and you never started a year with three straight games under one hundred. He's good rushing off on size. Which is Break. And points allow. So the point of it is what I learned this debt I got is that Prescott is a franchise quarterback and a great, and now he's proving for you to see proven as something new that he's a one and want to be an average France. So he is he's a franchise quarterback. Somebody who's not average our guy NFL analyst Bucky Brooks bookie sit out show straight only your data. Lost to the that's GonNa have to quit lining up on the wrong into this argument with me because I feel so bad sometimes when I grow up to those real but. Only got one more. Here's the thing that we have were dead Preska. Anything take out of debt Prescott this year is his absolutely a franchise quarterback because as Marcellus out there outlined like all the things that he doesn't have I'm asking more to it. Yes. Yes. A new coach who for whatever reason is trying to do this analytic thing and try and gopher gambles and do all this aggressive stuff that has putting his team in harm's way. But beyond. That he's playing with a bad defense, the defense can't stop any body balls are flying overhead. So the cowboys are always chase moat, but that's not enough. He's playing with an office of line a look I'm not saying that you can't be an undrafted player but for so long we heard all of this stuff about the cowboys offers a line and they got these first round picks. Up The line yesterday once again, they tried it out to undrafted free agents and office tackle. President I got press Kelly winning around for and his life and low a no show back to back over four hundred, fifty yours and I know we like to bring up that he had three giveaways. One of those last giveaways was a hail Mary Pass. Around like a top. And throw it up because he didn't have a choice. So if anything if I'm Jerry Jones and Steve and. I feel even better about Dak Prescott because he wasn't Joel. With numbers without anything being around him imagine if they start playing the right way and the right way was the way that they played when he first got into the league whereas balance and their big running back that is getting all that money was actually plan like a big money running back. That's when it becomes the Dak. Prescott wins and that's why I think they should feel great about Dak Prescott being a forty million-dollar quarterback. Taste. Good. You're told them up a little barbecue sauce on my finger right here. Let me just highlight one fact that you say first cowboy's quarterback ever to have consecutive four hundred passing yard games and that's the cowboys franchise I one ever Acho you ain't. GonNa. Go words a different game with Marcellus Troy Aikman to over twenty touchdown passes once in his career don't talk to me about. quarterback who's now thrown for four hundred dollars twice as completely different game stop cooking book is what I will say lucky you're right. Marcellus you're right that Prescott is a franchise quarterback. There's a difference between between being a franchise quarterback and an elite quarterback. There's a difference between being a franchise quarterback and a super bowl winning quarterback Dak Prescott, a franchise quarterback for a franchise that we'll hover around eight and eight to ten and six. That's exactly what I got is back Prescott is I have no problem with that. Is Very. Good quarterback. Isn't a good coming up plus a Wilson was on fire again, Sunday were five touchdown passes. Real France. Back out of that, running away with MVP next week by yourself. Welcome back to speak for yourself. Let's talk about that man who been cooking Russell Wilson. He showed once again why he's a front runner for the MVP press added five more passes against the cowboys giving him fourteen on a season, which is the most through with teams I games in NFL history. That wasn't enough. He's only thrown one pick season mall. The marcellus tell me.

What people need to know is just a friendly reminder. There are four teams on buys. It's Atlanta Dallas the chargers and the Tennessee titans and Evan. It should also be known that while we were recording part one, which we just finished the jets put Blau Powell on. I r so any thoughts for you as to how ownership pick up what it means for Nigeria Crowell owner like me or anything else. Yeah. I mean, I think that it definitely raises the ceiling for Zia crow ELS workload potential. Cruel is still relatively limited player though. And I think they clearly want to keep him in nature bitty of some kind. We saw that last week trick Keaton stepping of mentioned on the first one I'm trying to get Trent Kane and off the waiver wire deep dynasty leagues already Elisha McGuire in that league. So I have the jets backup running back assing game specialists. Foreigner. And those are the two guys to think about behind is Ahah curl. Sure that they will add someone in the meantime, not sure what illegible wires. Status right now broke his foot before the season. So never want to see a running back with a broken foot. Yeah. Will be interesting to to keep an eye on that. Let's get into the games now. And we'll start with the colts and the raiders. Raiders are taking team, you know, taking is it thing. Now. NFL? So welcome to the new NFL. This is an actual teams are doing the raiders are trading away. Young Pro Bowl players. We saw early the season with Khalil Mack. We just saw with Mark Cooper, not that Amari Cooper has been great by any means, you know, he's been on a downward trajectory as opposed to upward trajectory, but trading Khalil Mack was the first sign of it. And they've been shopping coral Joseph, and we may see some more moves when when all is said done, but I think this team that the colts can really really beat up on Marlin back has been on fire recently seven yards per carry over the last two games. One thing that stood out to be about Marla MAC is how decisive has been between the tackles that was not a facet of his game at USS, and I was really high on coming out of college. But I always knew that he had these these. These aspects of his game that might not appeal to coaches and one of them was his tendency to bounce runs outside. He's just kind of an inconsistent player. But over the last two weeks, she has been decisive not dancing runs outside even last year. You know, he got buried behind at or behind the line of scrimmage at the second highest rate in the NFL the colts offensive line. This is awesome. Zero sacks allowed on one hundred twenty five straight pass attempts for you to luck the longest stretch of his career the colts offensive line in football, outsiders run blocking. Metrics are number five in the NFL. They hit Fiqh Chris Ballard as fix this offense of line. I mean, you got brame Smith, right? Tackle you got Martin Lewinsky who they got bricks with was the second round pick this year. Mark glue Inskeep. Who Chris Ballard claimed off waivers last December starting at right tat right right guard. Ryan Kelly healthy at center he was Ryan Grigson final first round pick left guard. Of course, this year's first round. Pick Quinn Nelson and the Costanzo back healthy pretty good offensive line, man. I mean, and they're getting it done. I think they're going to beat up on this terrible slow raiders team Marlin MAC should shred. Andrew luck has fifteen touchdowns over the last four games quietly. Making a run at Patrick Mahomes for the league lead touchdown passes. Love to see it. Andrew look back ball and to Hilton back. Bulling back from the hamstring injury last week actually plays. Fifty three percent of the snaps and was not really a big factor for the entire game other than catching a couple of short TD's of that bodes well against this just being out there and make it through the game healthy bodes well. Heading into this game against the raiders. Should not rush the passer hemorrhage big plays down the football field. All that is t y Hilton's game. Very very excited to see him racing past. Dominique Rodgers Cromartie. Darryl wurley for long touchdown bombs on Sunday. Do not expect Jack Doyle back this week at Eric soup suffered the injury last week. Don't think he's gonna play. So again, Eric Iran all-systems-go had a slower week last week looks past attempts were way down, but he still led the team in targets is a lucked in every week. Fantasy starter. You look at the splits within without TY L and don't really want any part of Chester Rogers, unless his t- wise going to miss time in the future. Hime Hines has been rendered obsolete by Marlin MAC playing so much on the other side. I actually don't think that Mark Cuban removing him from the offense changes a whole lot other than just frees up marshawn Lynch has been removed from offense to and together they were combining for nine targets game. But other than that. I don't think it really changes a whole lot losing marshawn extra. I think is a bigger blow to the offense that Mark Cooper Mark per had two. Good games at a six and the other ones under under twenty ours is out there occupying the quarterback. I think the Jordy Nelson becomes a much more interesting wide receiver three slash flex play. At Jared, cook, even though he had to slow weeks before their week seven bye. He is he's going to be good to go. Either way. He still ran the east most routes and NFL over the over that five and six span. Seth Roberts is gonna play more at Slough receiver. But that's not very interesting. Martavis Bryant was second on the team area arts behind Amari Cooper, who is leading the team areas. So I think Martavis Bryant as someone that the raiders kind of embarrassingly gave up a third round pick middle third round pick for. They're going to want to get something out of him just to you know, for for ego sake. Probably he's going to get big play chances. So he's he's in the mix like a DFS sort of play. And I think that he's in Mexico. Hi, variants wide receiver force lash flex, Doug. Martin is going to be the early down feature back in. Jalen Rashard is going to be the passing down back for the raiders. Which means that the guy that you want is Jalen Rashard. You know, because he's going to be playing a game where they fall behind and the raiders are going to be falling behind a lot as we move forward. Jalen Rashard immediate starter in PR Li ext Doug Martin stand dependent guy. Just really is not a fact it years as rusher to move onto the next one. The next game. It's the Niners who disappointing against the Rams against the cardinals. Who are just as appointing. Yeah. Just to pretty bad teams. I have not written this one up yet. Because there are a lot of injury concerned things especially like, Matt Brita. N even Josh Rosen. Although it looks like he's going to play by left which is going to take over as the cardinals offensive coordinator and replacing Mike McCoy, and he was hired by Bruce Arians. He was with Bruce Arians in Pittsburgh during Ben's big bend suspension. And was it was a backup there with Charlie batch. And Bruce Arians loved him. And of course, Brazilians was the coach of the cardinals. When David Johnson had is monster season in two thousand sixteen. So hopefully, you know, they're on the horn together. Bruce Arians is giving him ideas of better ways to use David Johnson. But the forty Niners have really struggled to they've been good in run defenses straightaway run defense, but they have struggled against running backs in the passing game. Like, they give free catches kinda like that. The the Dan Quinn scheme in Atlanta, but they defend them more poorly. So I think that you know, we we need to see David Johnson getting six to ten targets every game. And hopefully Byron left which agrees with that. Larry showed finally got in the end zone last week. That was good to see, you know, I think that his upside is clearly clearly is is floor in a ceiling are clearly not comfortable at all. But he's in the mix as a wide receiver three play. Forty Niners has been really weak against outside corner against outside receivers. And that's where Christian Kirk mainly plays. George Kittle one of the best three tight ends in football. I mean, I feel confident saying that right now, or at least one of the top four because we have not seen gronk at full speed this year, but I mean right there with with irt Saint Kelsey. George KENDALL is frigging. Awesome. Vols in the run in the past games. On the other side. So Rahima stare if not breed it is not play in that Brita seemingly overcomes the odds. Every single week ROY Hema stared. I think would be the forty Niners Lee back. I think it's pretty clear that he is a head of Alfred Morris at this point in time in Kyle Shanahan's mind he should be owned in all leagues. I mean. This is a great match up for any running backs. Not like the the cardinals are necessarily terrible and run defense. But because they cannot sustain drives offensively teams are just piling up rushing attempts against them every game running a ton of plays them. So that always bodes well for a rushing attack. Because what you want in rushing attack is vol you are the cardinals gonna trade Patrick Peterson. Just there are a lot of question marks in this game. That are difficult to answer. We can move onto the next one. Okay. The next one is the Packers at the Rams interesting to see what the line is for this game. The Rams is heavy favorites. Thinking for this one. Evan Rams are heavy favorites. And the total is pretty monstrous it was it opened at fifty six and immediately bets came in on though over and it's up to fifty seven and a half. Now. So love to see that Todd Gurley Amine. What what is there left to say? He is on pace to break ladainian Tomlinson's single season record for most all purpose touchdowns by running back. Packers not been good in run defense and his massive home favorite. Jared Goff has been more of a floor than feeling play in fantasy of the high scoring projection in this game. I think really, you know, bodes well for him. I don't my guess is that Cooper Cup won't be back. I'm not sure we're gonna have to figure that out as the week moves forward. Josh Reynolds was not a not a factor with. With Cooper Cup out last week one target titan. You know, we're not really factors either. And then. Rainy, cooks, and Barada woods really did the heavy lifting. In addition to Todd Gurley on the other side Aaron Rodgers I think that first of all he before the by week he had a thirty or more rushing yards in two of his final three starts before the week seven by then he was a top five fantasy quarterback in each of the two games leading into the by. Now, the Packers actually were chasing in both of those games. But it's entirely possible that they could be chasing here that, you know, would would make it a very fun bucks gore day for Aaron Rodgers. And I think that in terms of just sheer upside at the quarterback position it's Patrick Mahomes. And it's Aaron Rodgers in week eight. Although interlocked also deserves mention there if the the raiders can can do anything offensively. The receiver core is going to be interesting to see how shakes out. Markaz vowed scheduling the big slot receiver with four three seven speed is really giving them a new dimension on offense, which is size in his lengthy is jets and Randall Cobb and drama, Alison, we're just dropping passes and fumbling and making all kinds of mistakes before they got hurt. So. Are they going to go away from the impressive young rookie? I'm not, you know, that'd be very interesting to see. But it makes all those guys very risky investments. I think that of the three Toronto Allison is the safest back to come back with a big role because he's been playing outside whereas Cobb and volt out a scheduling been playing insight vantera Demonte, Adam should rip this open ten touchdowns overs last ten games. You know, and you want to attack Marcus Peters and Troy hill on outside for the Rams. They had been playing Sam shields on outside. But they want a benching him. For Troy hill. Former undrafted free agent. The Rams have given up the eighth most yards to opposing tight ends. George kiddle had a big game against them last week. Jimmy Graham comes off the bye in a pretty good spot here. I mean, he was he was doing well in weeks one through six top-five among tight ends in charge and area arts. Running back situations. Very frustrating. You know, we all know their Jones can can ball, but they don't use them in the passing game. They don't trust them to be a full-time player. And they continue us this three way running back rotation. I mean in week six before the by Jones had the few snaps out of all of them. Played nineteen snaps. Ten Montgomery played twenty three Jamal Williams by twenty seven. So until we see in actual change in that backfield distribution, we, you know, all we can say is that you know, we hope and we think that this should happen. And we just, you know, move forward with what the coaches are telling us we can move onto the next one. Next game. Did you do the Rams? Yes, sir. That was quick. Only I was focusing on the Packers involved as scantly. I know you love that dude. How about how about Sunday night? How about the rematch man saints? Vikings. Yep. The rematch these teams actually played twice last year. So this is gonna be their third game since week one. Remember that Sam Bradford game read just lit them up. I think it was on a Monday night. But in this will be the third quarterback for the Vikings during that span, but the know this game will be played indoors. It's got a pretty big total Kirk cousins balling. This will be there really their best opportunity to dial up a deeper passing game. They'd been a quick out offense as they should be their offense of line problems. Johnny Filipa your this coaching tree of Doug. Peterson is really starting to develop quickly def- Lippo in Frank right? Doing great jobs as former eagles assistance. But they have gotten the ball out of Kirk cousins hands quickly. Look like the average up target for Adam see you in and Stefan digs really really short on both under ten yards. So. These guys are not like being targeted on deep downfield passes of this. This will give them an opportunity to get the, you know, get those chances because the saints have been giving up a lot of big plays football field. Can't really rush the passer. On their quarterback situation is such that, you know, they went out and made the trade for you lie. Apple they know that they are in bad shape side for Marshon Lattimore, go back and watch the January divisional round game between these teams and Marshon Lattimore actually shadowed Adams, dealing not Stefan Dicks in that game. But any any held him to seventy four yards on nine targets? But I feel that game was playing through trains verse process fractures in his back. And he also was playing more outside receiver at that time. Then he is this year that she was a sixty two percent slot receiver. Marshon Lattimore has gone into the slot. Three percent of the time. So I think that of who's gonna have another big game. And you know, I think the Vikings are going to be trying to proactively trying to get him another big game. Because if it goes over one hundred yards again, he breaks the NFL record for most consecutive hundred plus yard games. I I still think that you know, we'll digs is gonna be inside twenty five percent of the time. So he's not going to be on. Marshon Lattimore the entire game. And you know, the the saints the high scoring nature of the game. I think bodes well for Stefan Dick's, so he's not like a wide receiver one this week. But I do think that he is a confident wide receiver to Stefan digs, of course, had a monster week one game against the same. Saints defense last week one in of course, scored that walk off sixty one yard touchdown in the divisional round. Kyle rudolph. You know, it's not a whole lot upside here that he is demonstrated. Just getting you know, but somewhere between four and six tar gets each week not really getting into the end zone. So you kind of know what you're dealing with lake on Treadwell has a bunch of targets outback Robinson's Keach keeps on catching touchdowns late while Lakewood treadwell's does nothing so. No interest in those complimentary receivers on the other side. Drew Brees started off that that game. Last January really slow through a couple of picks early saints gotten a whole they rallied back and drew Brees wound up having a monster game. As did Michael Thomas biking's have played better defense recently. But really have not been tested, and they are going to be tested here. I don't think Xavier roads is going to play. Everson Griffen likely to remain out. Do the personal matter. Indra Syndey ho their free safety has been banged up on the internet bar left. The game last week with a hamstring injury. Did not return in the fourth quarter. So they could be really oh ah Lindvall Joseph didn't play last week. I mean, they are really really banged up defensively. I think the drew Brees is fire the cannons in this indoor potential shootout. Michael Thomas, fire the cannons. Tree. Quant Smith has three and six targets in two games without Ted Ginn. I think that's what we should sit expect for him high variants deep threat just basically playing the same role that Ted game in did previously. Cameron. Meredith was a no-show in the last game. And I think that he's rule is just less consistent than trick on Smith camera marathon Rin tin routes in week seven or eleven routes in week seven zero targets. The backfield distribution between Alvin Kamara Mark Ingram. I think last week was more in line with what we should expect Alvin Kamara nineteen touches Mark Ingram. Fourteen. Touches Vikings have been very good in run defense. But again, they could be without a bunch of key players in this one Ben Watson, his his like routes run and his snaps and all that were about the same that they had been last week. But he caught a touchdown all six of his targets against the ravens of things are kind of similar to the ravens in that the best way to go after them is in the middle of the field with tight ends at least when when everybody's at full strength. Suben watson. I think makes some sense as a streamer in a potential high scoring game in weekend or no likings are need to talk about their running back. So I just don't know about the running back. Some fortunately dalvin cook. Hamstring injury. You know, he's gonna try to come back. This we guide. No, let's have you Mary his played really, really. Well. And even if Delvin comes back. I mean, let's say Murray has earned a role we can move onto the next one. The next one is the last one Evan. It's the patriots and the bills I will be there on the sideline Monday night. Trying not to freeze my butt off. It's still a pct threat shouldn't be that bed. And I'm not expecting the Bill to really score any points. Right, right. One thing that might clay of ESPN noted this week is that the bills have played seven games and in five of them. The defence facing them finish as top three defense in fantasy on the week, which is just absurd because these are very very high variance in fantasy. I mean, you defense in the best possible spots, and they won't come through. You know in some terrible defense would just go off in terms of fantasy points happens all the time. But you know, this this signals. Hey, let's you know, let's let's check out the patriots fantasy defense here against this this bills team because guess what? Derek Anderson at four turnovers three picks last week and. He should have had another pick. But Margus hunt dropped it. So. Near he Anderson. You know, this is like an expansion level team the Buffalo Bills with McCoy suffers a concussion don't know if he's gonna play Chris Chris ivory could end up with a bunch of carries in this game. He should be owned in all leagues and always not a sexy player by by any means. But any dude who is imposition? Maybe get a bunch of usage should be on fantasy rosters. One good thing. The Derek Anderson did do last week was get Kelvin Benjamin going little bit seventy one yards. That's big for Kelvin Benjamin these days now you look at the the stat lines. When Derek Anderson has started with Kelvin Benjamin going back to Carolina since a four-game sample at this point of quarter of a season Kella measurement is going over seventy yards in all four of them. With a couple of big games now is gonna have to face all Stefan Gilmore who has been legit lights out this season. You our Robinson last week? So Kelvin Benjamin. Shakey wide receiver three. But at least he's not a shaky wide receiver five like he was for the first six games, you know, dome really want any part of Charles clay, the Bella check has always had like his fear of Charles clay, double teamed him stuck a keep Toledo on them. One game back in the day. So no-one mess around with him on the other side. I think gronk is going to be back in historically ES smashed the bills. This is where he's from. So. You know, he just think he is not looked same this this year in a definitely wouldn't be surprised if it's because of the back that has been hindering him and obviously last week missed the game because of the back like a late edition to injury report. So certainly something to monitor, but it seems like the signs point to him returning this week. Josh Gordon is going to have to deal with Tadeusz white, Josh Gordon's but ball. Mate's the bunch of big plays last week. But this is going to be a little bit tougher of a matchup. I do think that based on how much he is playing based on how many how many targets he seeing based on his level of play that he we should consider him to be a matchup proof wide receiver to. But I think that this is a game where he might not reach ceiling. Chris HOGAN has started to come on a little bit. But you know, with gronk there that'll be Gordon James white going nuts. You know, just a bunch of mouths to feed in the passing Chris HOGAN, not a reliable play. This is revenge game for Chris HOGAN who famously or or not so famously earned the nickname seven eleven for always being open on the bills practice squad. Julian I don't you know, where we're rolling him every week. He's been excellent. And then you know, you know, the deal was Brady Sony. Michelle do not think we're gonna see this week. And so that actually positions Kenyan Barner to get some carries against buffalo. He could end up with a lot of carries. This is not a game where it's likely that to to be a back and forth affair, you know, it's it's likely to be a game where the patriots try to stop there. The bills throat early in the game. And then you know, play their backups late in the game. And that would be that would be Kenyon Barnard James white. Of course, unbelievable season really has made the leap in two thousand eighteen fantasy started regardless of PR or non PR that takes care of that one.

Green Dot, com, what are you doing going there right now? Great work on their as always and I'm GONNA be talking to you about eagles, Washington Eagles or the Giants Eagles cowboys today. I've been using pro football reference DOT COM for. For last hour, so digging up some facts and tidbits looking at the all time record between the eagles are three NFC rivals are doing to make mention that they were previously in the NFC. East with the slash Saint Louis Slash Phoenix cardinals, but since they are in the NFC west now we really don't talk about them much. As a threat to the birds, they are different types of birds that we dislike not eagles, they say go birds. They're full of it, but we're not talking about the damn talking about their three primary. East rivals and I'M GONNA. Lead off with the Daniel Snyder owns Washington are words I will be not be saying that word. This podcast I'll be for intimate Watson going forward the Philadelphia. Inquirer just said they will refer to the team Washington when I was working back in the Philadelphia Daily News, partnership with Philadelphia. Inquirer obviously whenever I'd write about. The Eagles was of Covenant Team Pretty, intently, during the twenty four team season, I was gonna cry I was a junior in college interning. Interning Butson newspapers so understaffed staffed now is kind of just literally a fulltime staff writer all go into class and trying to live a normal twenty nineteen year old. Whatever college life and I would never use that word I've always called in. Washington in the paper was cool with it. Especially, everything gone on the world right now on arrests social justice, just no place for that, even though Daniel Snyder is terrible for allowing the team name, and for Plethora of other reasons as an eagles fan. In a vacuum I want him to be that Washington owner for as long as possible. He's proven time and time again to be just terrible. Terrible owner medals too much with his franchise in leads leaves the team. One not just a laughing stock in the National Football League. One of the biggest laughingstocks in all of North America Professional Sports. Got My little ironman notebook pulling out my stats right now. We have eagles in Washington I. Want to preface all this before I talked about each individual squad. Is that historically? The was a pretty terrible. No I think I'm twenty six years old. A lot of people that come invasion. The eighties and nineties and two thousands are a little bit spoiled. team has been relatively good their whole life, anyone who grew up in the buddy era. than the anti read our like I didn't even younger people right now. Who are growing up in Doug? Peterson our have been treated with the greatest couple of decade. Run an franchise history by far. It's not even close especially since any retail over ninety nine, so really twenty-first-century, the eagles owned the NFC east and I think we take it for granted that historically eagles a pretty terrible for decades decades in there was a couple of championships in forty, eight was forty, eight, forty, nine, forty, seven, nineteen, eighty were. They made Super Bowl Ron before that they had nineteen sixty as well. That was a big year winning. The Championship Nfl Championship at Franklin field. Hence, campus, my on the modern, wearing a shirt right now. My Air Jordan USA five, Zoning Rochman, going red, white, and blue right now, but eagles are terrible, historically, some of their all time records on great as we will get into, but we break it down further. We will see that as of late as in our lifetimes, legal has had been the premier team in the NFC, he's so we not with Washington's all time. Eagles are eighty, eighty, five and six against Washington not great in their first one hundred fourteen games against Washington they only one forty three games, so in that first one hundred fourteen games. And that runs from two franchise's inception until the end of the Buddy Ryan Era Nineteen, ninety, nineteen ninety including buddies last game, which was a playoff loss in January ninety one again against Watkins in that time period you were forty, three, sixty, five and six against locking in Washington had three pro bowl I think they had three super bowls. Not They wanted they wanted ninety one or ninety so now before the US one on before the mid nineties, Washington won three superbowls, so not great, but since the end of the buddy error since nineteen ninety-one Eagles are thirty seven and twenty Washington. And since the anti read our specifically they are twenty, four and sixteen and the Doug Peterson era. The birds have just completely and utterly own Washington opponents, sixty two and the four years that Doug Peterson has been a coach. Has Carson Winston quarterback Nichols in quarterback Yada Yada. Do Remember that one game in the end of the twenty eating season Nick Nick Southville came in first touchdown pass. I believe twenty one nothing win over Washington that coupled with A. Minnesota Vikings loss against the bears led the eagles to making the playoffs, and then when certainly the bears and the wild car round before losing New Orleans the following week. And kind of ton of memorable moments against Washington, I think I think of is the Monday night football massacre to Sean Jackson's ninety it ninety two yard touchdown catch from Michael Vick on the first play, the game Monday night football, the eagles just completely routed Washington. Vic Had I think five or six total touchdowns. was really just. It was Michael. Vicksburg, in this week are not this week last week. Was Mike The Birthday last Friday? So that was what that was June twenty six was fixed. A captivating athlete he was, I wished Andy could have gotten him young when he was younger in in his athletic prime in really tutored him in the game of football in a way that Vic wasn't quite acclimated, just super, athletically talented, and even still had a great football mind, but reads one of the greatest football minds of all time in pairing him his his entire career rum sure would have led him to be a hall of Famer. Philadelphia the whole time I bet they won the super bowl to the also have the first chip Kelly game when they went all tempo Michael Vick again, leading up on Monday night football once again, ships first game in two thousand thirteen is magnificent at a couple of friends from South Lake Him to my College. Apartment College House. We hung out drinks and beers wash. That game was just not. I thought that was one of those things. Where was the First Eagles game? The rest of my life I thought we were GONNA take. NFL by storm, and we sort of did for part of the twenty thirteen season, but as we know, unfortunately that ship Ara fizzled out quite quickly and. And My last most notable game that I think when and discussing eagles verse. Washington is Monday night football in twenty seventeen Carson, wentz MVP type showcase yet that crazy scramble Dr. defender ran for a first down had unbelievable, maybe Carson. Wentz has some unbelievable frozen. His just throws that so few quarterbacks, not even just playing now in the NFL but NFL history can make I guess right now it'd be no patent. Homes restored strictly. Aaron Rodgers in his prime and Michael Vick. mcnabb there are few guys possess the arm talent, the accuracy with the ability to maneuver in the pocket. The way whence does, and he was getting hit me through the ball to corey climate on the corner. Corner of the end zone was fantastic. Catch by Clement not not as last fantastic catcher that twenty seventeen, twenty seventeen season, as I'm sure you're aware which is phenomenal play and again you will have own Washington. Since dogs many here I expect that to continue for the rest of the re, our wentz Peterson era. dwayne Hassans at quarterback does not instill any confidence whatsoever me again. I hope he's their quarterback for as long as possible I. Don't what Washington to lose all of their games and twenty twenty I would like them to go like six and ten five and eleven have a couple upset wins, not against the Eagles obviously begins dowse New York just so they are out. Out of the Justin fields and Trevor Lawrence territory come the twenty twenty one juror. This brings me to our second discussion against an NFC east arrival. The New York giants Actually Eagles have a winning record against New York all time eighty, six, eighty, four to just get out just having that winning record not by a lot. They do have that winning record not GonNa. Hold all over the head of my giants friends from college they can make fun of about it that the eagles historically been terrible team, and just because of the success they've had last two decades has completely overtaken the giants and the all time leaderboard last twenty four Games Eagles are twenty and four against New York giants. They haven't be in the eagles and back to back gains. Since the George Bush administration and there've been. Countless countless mortgage more than any team in the League Eagles have memorable moments against the New York giants, I'm talking about Chuck benchmarks crushing devastating on Frank Gifford I'm talking about her. Edwards and the first miracle at the meadowlands I'm talking about Brian. WESTBROOK's punt return in a second miracle meadowlands I'm talking about the Sean Jackson's punt return at the miracle at the new meadowlands I'm talking about Jake. Elliott's season altering life faltering franchise altering sixty one yard field goal in week. Week three, two, thousand, seventeen that sent the eagles on a path to a nine game one st in super. Bowl title I'm talking about Randall Cunningham Duck and Carl banks throwing a strike in the end zone on Monday night football during the era, and putting him on the map of a true superstar, one of the most marketable players in the league marketable N. remarkable at the same time, and the I eighty four games from the two franchise's inception, historically the giants. Underway tiddle in the early hour of the NFL did quite well one a couple of championships. Obviously, the famous game is the nine hundred and fifty eight championship game. You know the first you know. Greatest game ever played which I'm sure is be yes, but it was the first time the NFL was really did some numbers on television. First game was really broadcast widely on television in a ton of people watched it, and obviously the sport has been the same since so strongly. The giants are good so up until through nineteen, seventy five. Which I pick that year because Dick from y'all took over the Eagles in seventy six, so through their the I eighty four games of eagles giants rivalry. Eagles were thirty to fifty to not great, but since then you've taken men and fifty four thirty four league, there was one bad stretching. From nineteen, ninety seven, so the end of the railroads was made the playoffs in nineteen, ninety six didn't make it again. Until two thousand so ran out range right there from nine hundred, ninety seven, the two thousand eagles lost nine games in a row to the giants that was a good Arab. Giants football giant, the Super Bowl in two thousand. And whilst to the Ravens in the championship, they believe out the Vikings and NFC, championship, game At the meadowlands coincidentally the giants Eagles, not once not choice, but three times met season they beat the eagles in the divisional round after the Eagles in the first playoff game of the read and Don mcnabb era, after they beat Tampa Bay buccaneers. They went to the old meadowlands lost in your ear went onto the super. Bowl and thankfully loss at Baltimore Ravens. That was when Ray Lewis one. MVP Trento horrors quarterback. Two thousand one. The switch flits. Eagles swept the giants for the first time since nineteen sits, and they wanted a vision for the first time since nineteen ninety eight not as most memorable four weeks set a week. Sixteen Eagles eked out a win. Against Newark, they almost almost loss the last play of the game. The giants friend is crazy. Flea flicker to Barbara to Ron Dixon. When's the last time you heard the name Ron Dixon? Damon Moore thank late. Eagles safety at the time tackled Dixon out the one or two or three or something like that Eagles almost blew it in classic. Eagles, fashion, they held on one of the vision for the first time since eighty eight. Over a decade giant still make the playoffs that year in the Eagles finding that giants monkey off their back. And it was just so rewarding to see. That's the first evil's real concrete memory of in my mind, so it's one of those things that will always stick with me. I'll always love that two thousand one eagles. That's First Eagles team, and that's the first game I. Really Remember so you know hate in the giants is at the essence of the core of my eagles fan on just as much as the next team will discuss I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. But through the two thousands, the eagles and giants were the two primary NFC east teams. And into the early twenty tens given that on. Two bowls in two thousand seven two thousand eleven. Eli Manning at some unbelievable playoff appearances the patriots in both years, but even then he was one a division Monday times, and obviously as we know, won the super bowl in twenty seventeen year, in which they beat the giants twice jake, Elliott kick fantastic season I loved it I still think we owned the giants I'm not scared. By Daniel Jones Daniel Jones I'm not scared of them in the slaves. And I think again like Washington I want them to okay this year in when five or six games, you know and beat the cowboys. Hopefully once I have one of those wins just again because I don't want to give up on Danny dime nickname for what a crap layer to quickly and I do not want them to be in the Trevor Lawrence Justin fueled joining you. You know if they have the number one pick, they might just take over running back for an offensive guard or something, because they had no idea how to build a franchise and twenty, what eighteen may selected running back with the second overall pick in the draft? He's the best running back. In the NFL and the team is absolute garbage. Show he doing what you're doing Dave. I love. It will be had a lifetime contract in New York. Baseball truly, it is awful I'm phillies writer? Justin clue, join me every week along with John Stolnis. Liz. Rozier Dr Trevor. strunk as we discussed all the ways. The phillies of hurt us on our podcast hidden season as well as historical anecdotes and Rar, emotional ramblings on shows, continued success and the dirty inning subscribe to the good fight, and you'll get conversations with insiders analysis of breaking news and stats stats stats together. We'll survive. Whatever baseball can throw at us? You know who the last team is going to be i. see the best for last. Thing That gives me life. The joker to my Batman the thing. I cannot live without he eagles cowboys, rivalry, obviously Dallas and historically great franchise. All this bowls all glory. The America's team bs all that crap. Shoot earlier is the national games the Thanksgiving gains, which is completely unfair advantage on. We'll get to different time about having Thursday game at home every single year. It's crap again netted discussion for later in the seas. Obviously, the Eagles all time record against Dallas, not particularly great. Fifty to sixty six. From December sixty seven until nineteen seventy eight data stretch where they were two and twenty one. against. The cowboys and that's obviously Tom Landry Roger Staubach. Couples who royal titles in period really down here Eagles football. My Dad was born in sixty nine so now he used to say that his father, my grandfather. Would discuss that. They didn't really they were never making this. They were crap. So the one thing they hope for year was to be doused. That was there Shula Bowl. They could just eat dowse once or twice in this season. That, was that made everything. Obviously, a didn't really happen. Given the. Su- out of twenty three games. But then the tide started the turn. In nineteen eighty, the will play the cowboys three times next season. They won two of them and most notably in the nineteen eighty NFC championship Game Rommel, but run run wilder run Wilbert Montgomery's icon. ICK, iconic touchdown, writing at the cowboys. The send them to the super. Bowl were they unfortunately to the against the Oakland Raiders. They weren't L. A. UP and. You know that was the first time it really felt like. The Eagles WanNa cowboy that was really that was all those eagles. Fans of that generation had was. That's why my dad. My Dad is what? Turn fifty one years old this fall that's. That's his thirty eight thirty seven nats, his big thing. That was the first time in his life. He felt like the eagles were truly truly better from the cowboys, and all the you know the junk that he grew up with with eighteen, heading the cowboys in just having all the bandwagon fans around on South Philly in the area. No thrown in your face. All those losers eagles were better than him on that day. Nick never take that away from the eagles thick. Never take that away from Wilbert Montgomery. Dick never take that from my father. And that's what I love about. Eagles cowboys, running in the buddy are from eighty. Six to ninety eagles had a great run. Against the capitals going nine one undergoing a little tangent, right?

One thing I've talked about frequently in my newsletter is a nineteen eighty seven NFL strike. And obviously I support the players, a thousand percent is that the players wanted you know the league became increasingly. Profitable and the players just wanted equal pay have more coverage for health benefits. Obviously, football's a devastating sport on players bodies on their minds on their brains. As we've seen in decades, and the players deserve that money. They're the ones going out in the field. There's the ones who are performing. No one's going to an eagles game to watch knowing. Brahman sit in the owner's box. The go near to watch reggie, white and Randall Cunningham. That's who they are going to see. My quick, not knowing Brahman or whoever owners they're out there. Marija little bit from my newsletter. I talked about the newsletter couple time to go on this little tangent. I start with a quote from Dick for meal. People take the Eagles for granted. A lot of guys have heard me say never let anyone take for granted. I get the feeling the dallas. Cowboys take us for granted right now. We're here because we earn the rights of the. Dallas cowboys. For granted bull whip there. You know what I hate the cobbles. It's in my blood. You're a third generation. Cowboys Hater as my dad said to me. It's part of my DNA in the rationality, the cowboys represent the antithesis of everything that makes the Eagles Philadelphia special. No story better personifies the dichotomy. Between the Cowboys Eagles. Fan Bases then the tail of the nine hundred seven NFL straight. There was a twenty four day strike. During week four through week, six of that NFL season much like the Keanu reeves movie that glorified scabs NFL owners feel the roster with replacement players cross the picket line while the NFL players association in better injury, care and salaries and increasingly profitable sport. Are Yun is only good as its members. If those union members remain cohesive collective, they can be a unified front while fighting for what they believe in not across the NFL remain more unified during the strike in the Philadelphia Eagles, Philly as I'm sure you're well aware. As a hardcore blue collar town with a strong union presence union made my body's Union May, Dad. Union worker proud of it. Support Union Workers Everywhere Eagles exemplified that aspect of their city as just three players cross the picket line doing so solely for injury reasons with the blessing of their teammates. The birds formed a human chain American replacing players who cheesecake owner. Norman Rodman. Who is a disgrace? Got To fill out the eagles roster. From Practicing Eagle's even listened to help the teamsters to enforce their strike. It was hard or I really can't see something like that ever happened today. That type of unity between players in the fan base I just don't see what the dichotomy way lot players unfortunately people and fans in the common folk. You players as these you know egotistical rich people in reality. That's who the owners are. Pliers their workers. They're putting their bodies in lot. In week four that year Eagles got demolished against the bears thirty five three week five. Found them traveling dowse take on their biggest rival. This is rivalry week on espy nation, some talk about my favorite aspect of the heels cowher's. The cowboys are divided when it comes to destroy dowse like Texas hope is not a union stronghold. They have no pressure from the city to keep together Dallas owner Tex Schramm. Is A strike breaker. As superstars Randall Cunningham in Reggie white remain in solidarity with their striking brothers. Countless cowboys players crossed the picket line, and off dowse pro bowl quarterback, Danny White, in addition hall of Famers, Tony, Dorsett and randy white or among those did. Terrible. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE DISGRACE! How can you like Dallas after that? Given the gigantic disparity in town as eagles were using guys who hung out in the at Seventeen Shung. The birds were embarrassed, losing forty, one the twenty two. Legendary cowboys coach Tom Landry. Being Smug, you know what that he was round the score instruct defiance of the strike, another side of the Field Eagles head coach Buddy Ryan privately supported a strike and his players. He was fuming. Landry embarrassed him the eagles. Philadelphia the northeast dozen forget. As more and more players cross the picket line. The strike ended after week six without the NFL given to any of the players demands. It didn't work because of the cowardice of guys like doors set and white, the eagles roster back, though and getting ready to further week seven opponent the cowboys, they would now be playing at home at Veterans Stadium The legendary the iconic veteran stadium. Want blood as he should have. Everything. DOWSE and Landry didn't use a feel. His players, the Burj showcasing power acting as one. took an insurmountable lead. Over. The cowboys worth thirty to twenty late in the game. After kneeling on two consecutive place Eagles are faced with thirty nine thousand situation at the cowboys, thirty five yard line with just ten seconds left on the clock. A Neil endgame body has a trick up his sleeve. Though when Randall Cunningham takes the snap under center. He fakes kneel down catching the cowboys players whose expected Lazy End to the game off guard and serving a dart to Mike Ensign. Quick it's them all by dowse defense back trying to prevent the sheer baron from happening. The cowboys are fly with pass. Interference Eagles are given the ball at the one yard. You know what happens next Cunningham takes a snap hands it off to run back east. Leaps, over the line of scrimmage in in for touchdown. The Birds Win, Thirty, seven twenty. They rammed the score just as Landry did a few short weeks back. It was humiliating humiliating. Move on Buddy, Ryan's or And being the blue collar guy like to believe I am. And not I could not I could not love it more. It's the ultimate revenge play on a franchise as repulsive in this town as the Dallas cowboys. Yes, needles didn't make the postseason at year, but it surely felt like the beginning of the buddy, Ryan are and swagger, the absolute swagger. Those squads would always carry themselves with the next season. was went eleven and five, and made the playoffs the next season the cowboys went one and fifty. Mic Drop my job Mike Drum. That's not it though. I Thought it was done talking about the cowboys almost the half hour mark. You thought it was done talking about the cowboys. I think back to the Eagles last game. End Kelly Green January seven nineteen ninety-six. The Eagles lost playoff game to the eventual champion Dallas. Cowboys. That was the last game in last season. The Eagles were Kelly Green say midnight Green Kelly Green last time they were Kelly. Green, that also happened to be the last time eagles. Or she said last time the cowboys. Ever wanted to. In everyone's super bowl again as eagles in that nineteen ninety-six season. Change, their colors from the classic Kelly Green to the modernized midnight green. Obviously, that's a whole debate. My podcast. He was one who midnight green. They should keep that forever so I grew up on Kelly as a third Bosnia, Jersey go for Neagle. Switch the midnight ninety six. They made the playoffs that year and I think back to in November I believe. The game was late in the game. Troy aikman frozen interception? To James Willis in Dallas. WHO's running the sideline? James Waltzes linebacker Big Boys Lavar curtain style Linebacker, he laterals at the Troy Vincent who's scammers, all the way to the end zone for touching on a gain ceiling picks hand off whatever you WanNa, call it. And it was at that moment that the power shifted away from thousand NFC East. They were no longer the premier team in the NFC. As. We talked about before the giants had that ninety seven to two thousand runs so Kinda went to work at that point. But by the twenty first century was premiered. Seem the NFC east, but the Philadelphia Eagles. Blogging the boys, the terrible terrible terrible cowboys here at the nation that did it tweet the other day that I came upon on the time on said, what is your cowboys? Would your favorite cowboys rivalry presuming talking to cowboys? Fans none of them. Are Dallas subsidy live all across the country? And I said my favorite cowboys robbery is the cowboys versus twenty percent. But since then as was discussing. New Eagles have gobbles. owned, but the eagles been been that premier team and NFC east over the last two decades. In the end, read our. They were sixteen and twelve came with those four straight NFC championship game appearances division titles, the iconic four to six game in two thousand eight, where they absolutely smashed destroyed a winner. Go home game in week seventeen against the cowboys Brian Dawkins last home, green home game in midnight green for the birds. The hozeal Hanson everyone it was it was it was a game. It was a night. The GIARDI turned into a Nardi unbelievable day in Eagles history. I wish I. was there have season tickets yet, but again historically I wish I could have gone. Then we have the twenty seven. Thirty seven to ten game birds losing ten to nine halftime Sunday night football was getting a little stressed out. Twenty eight on answer points.

Miami Recap: Clemson Is Still Lightyears Ahead

"This is the all into Clemson football podcast, the official unofficial podcast of the Clemson Tigers. Let's everybody Briley here along with my Guy Carter and we are here today to give you a recap of Clemson's massive victory over the Miami hurricanes over the weekend they won forty two to seventeen to extend their regular season winning streak to thirty six games. That ties ironically, the nineteen eighty, five through eight hurricanes for the third longest streak in college football history. How about that? Lot of winds? That's good because they won't have another three weeks to extend that winning streak because they just have off weeks by weeks. Three weeks. That's it until they played notre. Dame. You look at it that way. I. Don't even know if we need to record episodes at this point they play like they did on. Saturday. Then they'll definitely be by weeks. Thankfully, those games counts for their streak but Georgia Tech's coming up here and I don't expect that to be closed based off of their performance tonight I don't think. So probably not hey, you've got a quick update for us on the score count here in this series between Miami and Clemson right? Yes I do not Sir Robin anymore to a please do emmy fans. All doubt they're listening now. So the last three meetings that Clemson has played Miami. CLEMSON has outscored Miami a hundred and thirty eight to twenty. And think of it this way Miami put up seventeen points this weekend. And you can do the math for the rest of the last two games. That's a pattern thirty, eight to twenty painful especially for a program that so badly wants to be back. They WANNA be late they're just not there yet. Well I mean. This was just a great performance by Clemson and really there's nothing to be embarrassed about if you're Miami at this point, because every team gets whipped by Clemson like this and think told Tony Elliott CLEMSON's offense of corner coordinator had a great quote after the game. Here's what he said about Clemson's performance but you say for us we talk about in in definitely respect for Miami but for us, it's all about how we prepare. Now we play and how we for. That was Tony Elliott's nice way of saying Miami socks. In the only team that can beat us is us that would that would make it into our useless are worthless sound collection I think if he said those exact words but yet guess what the only team that is going to be Clemson this year is Clemson and that's only if they don't play to their standards which so far this season we had some questions come out of the Virginia game, but they've played really well so far this season yeah I mean that's the mindset to have. If you're the elite team, it's only up to what you do. It doesn't matter what the other team does. If you're the best, you'RE GONNA win doesn't matter who you're playing so Exactly, and of course, it helps that you will next week get Georgia Tech. So they don't even have to play their best for that. Okay too excited here we're still football. You never know what's going to happen but let's go ahead and break this game down I. pointed out or I I took notes of some pivotal place route this game and they all happen to be in the first half because come the second half the game was out of reach and actually you made a great point in this preview game you you had a great prediction of what this game was going to be like during that. Yeah. Basically I was saying that Constancia, jump out to a touchdown. Lead than Miami says not going to be able to come back from that like the score was somewhat close. Then, he scores obviously a little bit more, but they kept a close out the game, but it just didn't feel like a game at all although no actually even in the first half, you got the sense that it this game was not even as close as the score. Oh Yeah. It was fourteen nothing before we even blinked. Yeah. In on it stayed that way for a while and Clinton was dominating. The way if you didn't have the scoreboard ticker at the bottom, you would've thought the game was thirty ones at that point but credit Miami for second close at least for the first half. Okay. So the first pivotal play for me and this is where south for Miami was. The CLEMSON'S I drive. Miami stops him get gets them into a fort. Down Situation. And that play Trevor Lawrence probably made his only bad throw of the night and it didn't count but he he just wind it up to the receiver on the sideline and Miami's defensive end actually almost picked the ball off and that would've been it. That would have been the end of the drive 'cause that was fourth down that. It just happened that that Miami defender was actually offsides before the play happened Andy dropped the interception double-whammy. But it didn't count and after that two plays later, Clemson was in the end zone two and a game is over. The Cubans over at that point. But. It was too. I need to brag about myself a little bit here. You know the name. Brand. Galley Brayden. You probably don't know. Talking about let's not brag about yourself here frayed in Galloway in the preview episode I said that this is this Mike could be and it should be his breakout game and lo and behold it was a heck of a breakout games, right? Two touchdowns and he wrote the first touchdown for Clemson but that was sort of the first bit pivotal play where you're like okay. That was a missed opportunity for Miami and it also showed I. Mean Miami had a ton of penalties in this game that really hurt them and it was just this is that's what this game turned into. It was just like, okay. They're going to MRIs opportunities and they're gonNA get a bunch of penalties. You don't be Clemson doing those sort of things. So that was the first pivotal play in my book. Yeah. second one that we have here we have if you could recall back to the start of the second quarter. I can't. You can get the whole game memorized Clemson was at the goal line, and if this is touchdown were the whole, it was a run up the middle and it was stuffed. But that no where he just bounces it out to the outside that was kind of just to show the entire game that Clemson like doesn't Matt didn't matter what Miami did Clinton just had their way with anything like even when Miami played well, it's still on. The run and he like. Run running the outside. So yeah. Yeah. That was an awesome play eighteen played great. We'll talk about that in a bit and that actually capped off an eighty nine yard touchdown drive with several third third and long conversions, which will also talk about here in a bit but. Yeah I mean that was a great play I love eating in these last two games have just been on fire. So that's a cool thing to see running over everybody I would not want meet him. Exactly, Let's see. Well, the next play got for you is a maybe not a positive play. In fact, it's not a positive play and you were saying before we even started recording. You're like, is this even a pivotal at this point but yeah, it Sorta at Miami in the game at least somewhat yeah. It was Frank Watson's drop on third and sixteen like Trevor, Lawrence through a dime to him on the run and he just dropped. You hate to calm out too much because I mean he's still did play pretty good throughout the game, but that was a pretty big drop on third sixteen especially with how often clemson is put themselves in long third downs. Yes. Yeah and that was another easy third in and conversion actually for them they could have gone up twenty one to Zip and really put the game away even earlier but. They can't be perfect and they actually came back and redeemed himself. He caught a ball a more difficult pass actually later but Yeah. We need to get him going here a little bit more. Okay. So Again these are all in the first half, but the next the the last pivotal play than I have written down here. Is Actually, not really just one play but multiple play. So the only real success successful play that Miami is had was scramble by dear. King. where he went for like sixty something yards I forget what it was exactly but they got him down close into the red zone but then the next three plays, clemson's defense stuffed the canes. And they forced them to kick a field goal at that point. And again, this game would have been totally different if Miami was able to punch in, punch it in point I think it was fourteen zip and I mean you're talking about a real game at that point if down at touchdown and we saw the rest of the game, but you know how momentum works. You know this game could have been very different at that point difference huge difference from a touchdown and a field goal. Exactly, and we're not the only ones who noticed establish had something to say about those places well, alcohol better. Moments in the gate was when we gave up a long Iran there. In, we, we played red zone defense held onto a cake. Too many hours used it was huge. and. Of course, there were some big plays in the second half you have Teens long touchdown run which really kind of put the nail in the coffin course trevor, lawrence his spike in his trash talking throughout the Oh. Yeah. Actually that's a good segue. Let's go ahead and move into our takeaways and that's a good segue because my first takeaway is this came this team came out with some attitude today I like it. I like. It was that was fun to see. Okay. We're so used to Clemson of being this lovable giant Juggernaut, you know Davos Kinda goofy. His team sort of has taken on that persona and you don't often see them get you know like. Unsportsmanlike penalty and those sorts of things which we don't obviously want. But but if you're GONNA get it, it might as well be against Miami, and you might as well be big on them yet but those penalties were for anything dirty or anything. Those were just in the moment type excitement. Like celebrating, it wasn't dirty. So all four yeah. Yeah. I mean I like I said that I loved it. There's no other. I literally loved it so. But yes. Specifically, it's kind of from these lead the leaders on the offense you saw. Trevor Lawrence I mean he gained a play today third you brought his game and he got smashed around awareness a laid out a few times. Yeah. After the game he said that he was definitely sore and I wish I had the reporters had talked to him a little bit more. Him about the hit where he got the wind knocked out of him But he took some blows to the head. A couple of targeting calls guys got thrown out when they hit him and he I mean he just stood strong and what I really love to see was and you just don't see this front very often he's Kinda quiet has kept to himself during games but this game he was up in the defenders faces every time it seemed that they had a close up shot of him after a play he was John. Back and forth with the Miami players and I just love that that was that edge that you just love to see and of course. You know there was the the spike. Infamous Spike at this point, and I love how everyone is treating this at this point. It's sort of like, Hey, scored a touchdown. Hey, we love that fire but hey, we don't want them to do that again the spike but hey, let's keep that fire. So here's what Tony. Elliott had to say about the spike when like would like to see him not spike the. Ball to get the penalty with again, that just goes illustrate how competitive us we'll deal with that. But at the same time to just love the fire that set travel poison obviously, like you said, they love the fire just don't get the penalty next time it was kind of like a weak little spike to just kind of have a little take on this. All right. Okay I laughed what I just said what they did was dirty or anything next time I. Mean Trevor Lawrence get so much trash talk thrown his way and everything next time I. Want Him to despite it right in front of players scores on in his face if you're going to get called for the penalty, make it worth it. Let's give me fifteen yards anyway just spiked like Gronk by grand the dudes face. Let's let's make it even better. Why don't he just spike it into his face mask? That'd be good that would definitely be i. feel like after every touchdown, he should just spike it and just get the unsportsmanlike penalty everytime she the thing is the penalty only is i. it's added onto the kickoff who cares par potter's got the leg. Out of the end zone anyway. So do these those unsportsmanlike penalties count towards I think player can only get to any game. Oh, I don't know I. Don't know if that does for that or not. But if it does, you can still do it the. Rule. Book Real Quick Check it up. You can still do it once again. Yes. Yeah. That leaves us plenty of more games. He's got some time to practice Ligo. Said something funny about Trevor Course. As we talked about that the hit that knocked the breath out of him, here's what had to say about that play. Yeah. You got the bread knockdown among meal battle. Little bit small. TOLD HIM Use just get hit right the stomach. Issues. He was fine I. News got outwear exist. All at some point probably had the breath knocked out of us know how that feels Texas. He emails right out and just I mean nothing I see from Trevor Shocks me. Other. Than Him spiking the ball I, don't get an I. Don't get a lot of two trevor. So Up to get you know right there. Walsall's points for second I. Forgot the the little bonus take there at the end where he got the he yelled at Trevor for the penalty But yeah, he milked it a little bit. It seemed like this was actually I know everybody's talking about the spike but this was my favorite moment and I wish the cameras had stayed on him for a little bit longer because after the Miami player was thrown out for that week targeting call your heard me week turnaround targeting A. Trevor appeared to be doing a little dance on the sideline after the breath was knocked out of him, of course, stick to spiking the ball. No I liked it. That's what I'm saying I. Wish. That'd be even better. He needs to combine the two scoring needs despite the ball and to the players face mask, and then do the little dance top of them. You heard that here I alright driver. That's what we need to improve on. Your going to win the Heisman? Let's do it. So all right. Moving on. Speaking of players who came with an attitude and he was a little bit more quiet about USPS men and and game. Day Did a feature on how Travis each yen is the superstar that you know the least about who unless you're Clemson Fan. Like I, get enough about him although his press conferences are kind of weak there he didn't say a whole lot but. Anyway, he's just a baller he bought out today last week was kind of his breakout party against Virginia and we talked about how he was the MVP. Well, this week I think he was even better than Trevor Trevor gets all the headlines, Becau- and especially this week because he was so outgoing but each yen. He played like Trevor's attitude he just played it. That was the way he was today and I really love. We set a couple of weeks ago going into. Virginia game. We've been colonies things and I just feel like we got to point that out because it's important enough. To me that you know about this. Before the Virginia Game We said, we need to get E. T. and the ball on the ground and through the air make him a big part of this receiving attack, and this is exactly what will happen games like this against Miami. This exactly will happen every single week absolutely and I tell you what it was almost like it was. It was sort of embarrassing for the Miami Defense because every time they went. Back to pass the ball, you saw ETF leak out of the backfield and they would just hit him on the swing passes. It would go for fifteen twenty, twenty, five yards and it was usually on third third and long and man he's just so dynamic out of the backfield and so that was great to see and It's it's really paying off. He's breaking tackles like crazy. My favorite question he gets asked in his presser are these reporters are like a? Who Travis? How do you break tackle so much it's Like. Just break tackles. You expect. Like what's he? GonNa say strategy to. Let them, hit me in a certain spot. Juke Berg. A but. Actually the one thing that he does say, I, like this is that he has the mentality of no no one man can tackle him and that's so true. He plays that way that's great and it's paid off because he broke Tim Tebow's record of the most games in a career with touchdown. He's now up to thirty nine games and that's incredible I mean that just goes to show. Did they state that fact during the game? Maybe I don't know if not the not just their the reason why he's the unknown superstar. Like if they didn't, I must have been pay attention to that part of the game by like I. Remember that I think they did it did I didn't wash it all at sound on but. We're talking about now doing our part, they make sure that people know about him. So yeah. Takeaway number one is that those guys came to play with an attitude and the rest of the team did too I mean. We didn't even talk about this the decay pushing the guy, the Miami wide receiver out of bounds for the ball sailed over his head like fifty yards writing for. The as was just losing his mind he was like that's billy billion decay welcome back like swag like in. So he was funny. Okay. So a couple of other random notes on the offense Amari Rogers is clearly the top target for this team at at least at the wide receiver position, he had seven receptions for sixty two yards, frank lattes, and we talked about him had a couple of receptions but nothing to impressive braiding. Galloway obviously had his breakout game for receptions for seventy four yards and two touchdowns. The offensive line we this was one of the key matchups that we're watching coming into this game. They only gave up one sack. Now I trevor got hit a couple of times but only one sack, and so they played really well and then. The one downside that I keep seeing, and this is the second week in a row that we've seen this as at the is that the offense continues to get into these third and long situations, and they had seventeen third downs in the average yardage to go on those plays was nine yards. That's not what you want to see. So we need to see those first and second downs get a little bit better. And then there were still some penalties as well. So those need to be cleaned up as well. But overall, just a good day by the offense I, did have a question though about the offense i WanNa know what you think. There are a lot of screen passes and bubble screens for wide receivers. Do you like that? I just felt like especially the first half, there are a whole bunch of them. So this is how I viewed that because I did notice that as well. Especially after the first drive, they put up a graphic that said that trevor was like seven of seven so far to that point I said, yeah, because he didn't throw screwed. But. There are two reasons for that one. Is I think they were trying to hit Miami They were trying to give them tempo just like they're all you know the Miami's offense was trying to do. So I think it was a little bit of like we Clinton doesn't do a whole lot of that and well, it sort of has been an emphasis. This year Tony Elliott has talked about wanting to run more play so I think it. was part of that, and then the other thing was I think maybe there was a bit of a concern about Miami's defense pass rush into, they wanted to get the ball out quickly and But yeah, I love actually emphasis Mari Rogers on that first drive the first three plays were to him and yeah but I think that's probably why they're. But yes the offense was good. Second Point was hey, welcome to the party defense. They played pretty well up to this point, but not like the Clemson well that we're used to. But Man, oh, man today they broke out and they point super. Well, here's what Brandt then ables had to say about it very complicated offense. They do. They can do so much on the lawn and the throwing game. And I've. talked the most obvious thing other than just playing with. Great. Grit toughness. Discipline having fun was. Just, watching grow up tonight. Voice our guys start to. You thinking going into the game just for all the reasons that we all know. From guys missing time being together even in summer, not having a chance to develop your chemistry. Just didn't feel like everything was. Just yet, we still had a lot of work to you. WanNa grow together to do tonight was again a small step in in doing just that. Yeah and he's right about that I mean several players and missed a lot of time defensive line hasn't been whole yet. In this did definitely feel like a chemistry building game where they finally put things totally together and they found their guys for the rest of the season. And they I mean Miami's offense has been dynamic so far this season and they shut them down. Yeah. That's what we were talking before. We start recording that. We were saying that comes his defense might even have played better than Clemson's offense which is hard to say throughout this game because Clemson's offense played really well, but their defense I think stole the show for sure absolutely and Yeah we're used to offense has so many superstars on it and it gets most of the talk it's football talk everyone talks about the off. Absolutely but so we want to give them their little spotlight today because they played amazing and Clemson's GonNa need them. This team is going to need them to play that way if they're gonNA compete with for the national championship although I don't know after this last Saturday, some of those scores I mean goodnight Alabama given how many points forty five Florida's defense is terrible this year. I mean, this is not been the year for defense. Let's put it that way. It's not, but also scores. Alabama. Florida still put up a whole bunch of points. So clemson's defense better be ready to go through. But that's the advantage that they have right now on all these other teams that defense look solid. And that was sort of the big question coming to this game. So they answered the Bell, they had a ton of they put pressure on dear king they mostly shut him down except for that long run and maybe a couple of other scrammed has one run. Really that's that's it and he couldn't pass the ball at all because he was getting pressure on them like crazy. I, mean, he'd never looked comfortable five sacks eleven tackles for loss eleven tackles for loss. That's that's dominating. That's for sure. They didn't have a turnover in the first half. They had three picks in the second half. They looked great. My this is I mean, this is insane. Okay. So we heard coming into this game like Niamey's gonNA run up tempo. They'RE GONNA try to run a hundred place. That's what they said. One hundred what they said. Yes. Guess plays they ran in the first quarter, the first fifteen minutes of the game. Has got like ten or fifteen pearl. That woman low even to they only ran six plays. Incredibly plays two possessions just dominated them and David Hale of ESPN put out this tweet. That speaks to Brent Venables. I. Mean This guy is he's the best defensive coordinator in the country hands down not even close. He said that since two thousand fifteen clemson and Brent have faced twenty-five ranked teams. None none have scored more than one percent better than the even their season average scoring. So not you know not one percent better. Overall, those teams are averaging twenty percent fewer yards. Per play and forty, four percent fewer points per game Clemson is twenty, two and three. That is insane. Wow. That even includes I mean I hate to bring up the national championship game from last season but? That clemson actually did keep lsu blower season average. and so. Mean it's just this Defense Brent? Venables doesn't get paid enough. And he gets paid a lot of the players. Oh. Yes. They're I mean they're coming out there they're coming out like they're being paid to play I. Mean They just put it together and it was really great to see. We saw. Xavier Thomas came back for a couple of plays at the end of the game. This team is incomplete yet once they get him back, they're going to be even more have even more depth and talent on the line anti Davis defensive tackle was back as well, and he made it pretty good impact in this game. So the defense look great the offense looked great. But. We're GONNA. We got a couple of things to talk about after this, but we're not GONNA end on a down note but our favorite. Murmur. Special teams. Good Company and Clutch. Time you saw a game that had three blocked kicks for one team who happened to win for Jeez. It didn't even matter at. Nothing on the top of my head that's for sure. Yeah. That was rough to see and Is the curse back. Have we brought the curse down upon t potter again? I. Don't know about that because if we did, we did something really bad this time 'cause back even worse than it did before in his special twisted way. I never know who to put the blame on with a blocked field goal because obviously this blocking, but it's also on the kicker for not getting up high enough. But then also there's the coach who sends out there for sixty one yard field goal. Yeah. Endowed took responsibility for it and here's what he had to say about that. was abandoned season. Absolutely he can make that kick. There's no doubt about I'd say it's only a bad decision because he didn't make it because he can make it. I think he's got the leg for it obviously. So it's only bad for what there are two reasons it's it's bad. It's because not only did they miss it But to Miami, I mean what a great defensive play design so crazy but they they scooped it up to the guy right in the proper position and they scorn the guy didn't even try. He didn't do anything. He just went to the side and waited for a block. Yes. I've never seen that before maybe other teams do it but that was that was incredible. So Kudos, to you Miami, you also realize that with that touchdown. Miami put up one offensive touchdown throughout the game which was a trash like garbage points basically thompsons decent going back to their defense again, only gave up one touchdown which was in garbage time basically. So yeah, really only a field goal and when the game was in question. So yeah but now hey, we're talking about specialties ours actor the point no I, I mean that's it. Really like just be better. Okay. Like just do better. That's. And I I highly doubt that they're ever GONNA have three kicks blocked again in Davos tenure you heard it here first. Sure, they'll try another sixty one year believe. It's true. Come down to that kind of hate it because I mean obviously bt Potter has had a great season so far and I think he could made it and that would have been great. So I guess we'll never know because he's not going to get another chance at this point. So we'll need to clean up the special teams but all listen that was a great game. That's what you WANNA see a top ten matches matchup and I mean Clinton came out and down the needed and there's just no other way around it Miami still is not back by the way so that answer that question from our preview episode of Miami was back or not well I think we knew the answer that before manny. Navarro he was here also starts downward trend of five losses in a row. Yeah. It'll be interesting because I mean if they play well and they beat Notre Dame in Constan Beats Notre. Dame we could actually play Miami in the ACC championship again. True. We'll see. All right. Let's Today's episode out with our Tiger King of the week in our Carol Baskin's of the week.

More fun on the negative, right So, let's let's start with. These weeks when there's really no negative to take away from the Games through normal weeks. No. Yes our Carol Baskin's is a bit of upset I'd say but. Our. Tiger kimes or as I wanted to call them tiger princes. I told you that idea. Okay and this is pretty obvious. It's GONNA be. Trevor. Lawrence in that. I mean come on there's no there's no one else. We can give it to lead the team and I was about to say they led the team passing and rushing but. Of. Why we do this? Yes. Come, for stats like this, you've come for that analysis and you come back for more of yet. They just led the teen they came out with that attitude. That's what I wanted to see. They lead this team this victory, we're going to give it to them and our tiger princes of the week the only time you'll hear that on this podcast. Okay. Why don't you share with us? Your care basks well, like we said, there really were no negatives to this game. So we're GONNA have to give it to Hurricane Delta for not showing up. Like. Some of the weathermen say said, it would obviously it did rain some but. From. You can see it didn't affect the game at all. I'm sorta wanted to tell you the truth Delta shame to themselves should be didn't show also it's multiple. Hurricane. Delta has a staff of people this you shape it themselves. Yeah I was sort of I think that sort of the start of the second half when it did actually start raining a little bit more. But yeah, never got it. Never affected didn't change anything at all. It was a whole Hullabaloo about nothing is what it turned out the. Both of the hurricanes were. All right. So that's going to do it for today's episode.
