The San Francisco 49ers Should Trade Jimmy Garoppolo Now
"Young. Basically, just talk about what we've been talking about right? He basically said it comes down to whether Kyle can trust Jimmy completely right. That's that's what he said Well, and then Jimmy's gotta execute it. And it's just their evaluation of Ah, Jimmy Garoppolo and And I was thinking When Matt barrels was on has been covering the team a while. You know, it's just one of the worst days as far as injuries to find out, you know, Chill your offensive, Captain Zerg on your quarterback, and you're And you're arguably your best overall player. Certainly one of your team leaders who just gave Ah $75 million contract, too. And Have you had some bad days that second week of the year against the Jets when Nick Bozo went down and Solomon Thomas went down and Jimmy hurt. The ankle initially was pretty bad. So that was a bad day. And then you know, going back to Steve's career much his first game in 97. Warren Sapp knocked Concussed him and not Jerry out. Jerry. Try to come back later, and it turned out to be worse and Steve did come back. So there's been some bad days and days of Steve Young. You know, when they first got here it was before Plan B Free agency, which was the first kind of soft entree. Into free agency in the NFL. You know, you could have Joe Montana, Steve Young and Steve Bono. When that was your three and a quarter back room, just incredible. And you know, the Raiders said Ah, Lamonica, Landa and Stabler all other same team. I mean, you just don't have that luxury. So the reason we're talking about this is the finances of it. And where Jimmy is that in the contract in the way they they front loaded the contractors. They had salary cap room at the beginning, so they They can make a choice here financially. Take it out from under Jimmy Garoppolo is even talking about before the year even started. I don't think this is really anything. I knew Jimmy has no more guaranteed money in his contract after this year, and the 40 Niners would have Tio suffer a two point million dollar dead, cap it if they trade him. Or release him. So I would much rather release him are partly trade him, then release him. But also the timing of this. The new league year will start. And you don't have to make any call on Jimmy Garoppolo. D have somebody on the hooker in the building or signed to a contract to be able to do that. So if you are going to replace him, you have to have somebody to replace him with And you're not going to do that now. I mean, it's just an exercise there. We're gonna play now that they do. Look at people They do look at contracts and they do look at who's possibly available and all that's in play. Now

"The forty Niners went ahead and told Solomon Thomas well yeah we like it but not that much with the chance to pick up his fifth year option beyond twenty twenty they did not which was to be expected why commit money to a guy maybe that you you know think maybe you could spend elsewhere now same thing happened to Mitch Trubisky this weekend with the Chicago Bears Sabah those two guys who are so linked together in the draft neither of them has had their fifth year option picked up so sometimes will be on the Niners this year because is that that is the final year of his

"I think that what we want to talk about our vise lows the NFL season so far and highs at this point are the Sansko forty niners it's the New England patriots to undefeated teams and then we want to get into Adam gays who want to get into Freddie Kitchens in WanNa get into the Chicago bears those I probably don't need to say are the lows of the nfl let's start with the great teams the teams that are that are undefeated mic Bosa and San Francisco Forty niners so this was so we talked about this last week where essentially both of the undefeated teams have been dogged by this Weirdo they haven't played anybody and eventually as maze I talked about last week eventually you know this is just the NFL they're beating up on these bad teams because there's just too many bad NFL team that's sort of the way things are going right now there's like five good teams that are quote unquote nice schedule winds and then there's twenty-seven teams who are who everyone considers inferior one AA competition Ravin said that the forty niners host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday they win fifty one to thirteen the panthers where the fifth ranked offense in the NFL all fifteen th ranked defense Nick Bosa three sacks three tackles for loss one pass break up and one interception return for forty six yards the forty niners I I I don't feel the need to say there will jit because we already knew their religion you've written about this this was the type of win that I August isn't very analytical this shuts people up oh yeah I mean this is this is what they call a statement when I think the most points they've scored since ninety three or something like that I saw that today Yup yeah type of win where if there was college they would get like twenty more first place votes this week exactly kind of win they wouldn't jump over the Patriots but it'd be getting close yeah I mean this what stood out to you when you just looked at I mean it was as complete performance you can get it turning that stood out that maybe I mentioned already I mean yeah obviously the defense I think has been the foundation that they've been operating on this year they've -pletely remade that front seven I should say the front the Front Line Nick Bosa you know changes everything default has been good deforest buckner is just playing out in elite level still Eric Armstead has been playing really really well as you know two and then I actually saw Solomon Thomas make a really good play today too I mean they've got guys they've got it reminds me a little bit of the rams of old in one sense that they spent several years of like accumulating talent and it's finding all starting to kind of click together her and their defense is looks like a juggernaut and then on the other side of the ball run game is just so dominant You know we saw we saw what they could do today. Seven Coleman really really good they've got like woman baby yeah they've got like four backs that could that could be their starter yeah they're just really really good so they they control the clock they it's such an old school method in you know it's it's funny because in the in the stage when passing is so much more efficient they're kind of breaking that rule that passing more efficient because when you can run with that level of efficiency in that level of explosiveness I mean it just you don't Oh you don't actually really need to pass that much because they've just been doing it sufficiently my favorite maybe event of twenty nineteen so far is field yates tweeted out most pass attempts prior to first career interception history number one is Dak Prescott number three was Kyle Allen after the game yeah Richard Sherman Seen this yet Richard Sherman quote tweeted that tweet which is I'm so happy to have Richard Sherman back in our lives I talked with a couple of weeks ago but just like the thing where he may be made up that thing with Baker Mayfield I'm fine with it leveraged do whatever he wants he's back in the spotlight he's GonNa Talk unquote tweet field Yates tweets about say element Mayo hundred percent on the rich German experience back to hit a piano yeah I know this is a pro Richard Sherman podcast now I think it's really interesting what happens now in the NFC obviously the Green Bay packers won tonight there are no drew breeze comes back with the saints and they look like they didn't miss a beat obviously you know teddy bridgewater is a very good quarterback while he was aperture breezes he's wearing your mind is the pecking order in the NFC and are the niners significantly above those other two teams man that's such a good question I really like The saints still I think the fact that they were able to do what they did go five zero at bridgewater and just Kinda keep going you know keep them momentum going forward I think they are still one of the favorites I would say you know it San Francisco New Orleans one and the packers just slightly below that but with the way that Aaron Rodgers has been playing last couple of weeks there certainly scary I think their defense has taken a little bit of a step back so there may be not quite as balanced as we thought they were but yeah I mean I think those are clear top three teams there's no question about that and then you could you know make arguments for the vikings or whoever but yeah I think those are like the like the cream of the crop for share in then there's a bunch of other teams speaking of the cream of the Crop New England patriots okay so the stats from the NFL the browns I can barely get throughout the browns had turnovers on three consecutive offensive plays against the Patriots that is the first time any team has done so since week one twenty twelve only the seventh time it's been done since two thousand this is not good if you're the browns we're GonNa get to the browns and are very robust stocks downs section a little bit but this patriots team unfortunately this is not kind of the schedule will win that we thought it was going to be you know the niners get there's the browns are not as good as the panthers the browns have been kind of a disaster but this was just another performance Devin mccourty looks like maybe defensive player of the year candidate the defense he just unbelievable in Baker Mayfield after the game said that the Patriots didn't do anything confuse them they were just playing really well yeah and you you kinda wonder like isn't that the worst case scenario for a team is the they're not doing anything new there just being the crap out of you I mean it was amazing when you think about this patriots defense what comes to mind yeah I think a couple of things going to mind number one discipline that's kind of a hallmark of the belichick teams is just being really disciplined like you know obviously Cliche do your job or whatever that's the first thing versatility you know they're able to play it's
Thomas Chatterton Williams on Unlearning Race
"Thomas Chatterton will you James is here now to talk about his new book self portrait in Black and white on learning race it's reviewed this week on our cover by Andrew Solomon Thomas thanks for being here thank you so much for having me so recent density are pretty hot button issues right now and with this book your kind of placing your finger like directly on that button and like pressing Alan like why do that I did it because I think I felt I had to I very much bought into really believed in the American racial binder that says a drop of black blood makes a person black I grew up in New Jersey with a white anglo-saxon Protestant mother and a black dead and define myself simply as black and never check two boxes on any census even once after two thousand and once you could and even wrote a in retrospect to kind of I think Glib op Ed in the New York Times before my daughter was born in twenty twelve arguing that my kids would be black period and then it was really in two thousand thirteen Arlos birth in Paris that really made me rethink the way we box each other into categories and it made me wonder what it means if I'm a black person that can have a blue eyed white skin daughter what what is what is blackness mean what does whiteness mean if she can be twenty percent sub Saharan African so I wrote the book because my belief in the the racial fiction kind of fell apart in that hospital room so it happened right there you hadn't really even been questioning it until that moment I had gone into the hospital room really believing got my daughter would be mixed but she would be black and the reality of her appearance her head popped out with blonde hair the doctor is screamed and I you've I just held my baby I love my baby and I realized that that I'd have to find a new language for my baby and what about your wife who's white and French where did you she stand on this raises made locally I really learned that also living I've been almost a decade in Paris now and my wife Never understood the one drop rule it's not that she didn't think that her kids would have back heritage assist that she didn't Europeans don't often understand viscerally why whiteness can be tainted the way Americans believe that drawback necessitate someone not being white so she kind of got on my page when I wrote that out that she was like that's cool I'm going to have children but I think when she saw our daughter she also thought how can I send this get into the world just uncritically saying that they're black so it's not that we want to send her daughter into the world saying that she's white either that's the the book is really it's not against blackness its against its against race I think that we all have to have an anti-racist project racism is real and affects the way that we live in our lives and anti-black bias is real but I don't think you can stop at anti-racism I think you have to go up further and be anti-race if these pernicious categories are not actually real all right I want to get to the right larger message and a bit but sticking to your personal story for now before you went to France you self identify as black when you got to France did that start to change or how are you perceived racially in France differently from the way you are here in the US when I arrived in France people didn't necessarily read my physical characteristics the way they're read back home so if I wasn't understood as light skinned black person in America impulse would be to think that I was Latino or something like that but in France became kind of a North African Arab which was a shock to me and I and I kind of got used to it but really my primary identity in France was not racial it was it was national I was in American and that's always been a kind of liberating discovery for for black Americans going back to Baldwin and the Gi's the can the jazz musicians became if you're suffering from Ras and back home it was a it was a kind of a liberating moment to realize that you were you were just in American and that you had more in common with other Americans and you had with Europeans actually this book is kind of a memoir but also an asa larger sort of an argument about race and racism your first book was straight memoir losing my cool did you plan to kind of continue in that vein have you had a novel going on invitation my first book came out in two thousand ten I'm coming up on nine years between publications and three of those years were spent working on a novel that I kind of put in a shelf around the time my daughter was born maybe that was the best but yeah I had wanted to write a novel I didn't set out to be a serial memoir six nine long years in between there to cover there were and and the kind of an epiphany I think there was a larger arguments I think you can dip back into memoir over and over again if there's a larger point to be made I don't WanNa just gaze at my navel or talk about my own fascinating life but I think that our personal experiences can can touch on things that are universal so what made you put that novel away and decide to write this book I wrote an essay in the Virginia quarterly review about my daughter's birth and then I realized that that was a book actually and so when the novel wasn't going wasn't happy I always a good excuse to the that that personnel away but as you said it's not a straight memoir you have a larger point here let's go back to what you were first talking about with race what do you think that we're getting wrong here in America when it comes to race in entity I think that we have well-meaning conversation on the left that's kind of believing again in the idea that racial categories are essences are real are we pay lip-service idea that their social context but I think there's a kind of leaf that there is something fundamental about blood or about tribe and I think on the rightist very it's been very bad as well well and that comes from a less well-meaning place but I think we're we're dangerously losing sight of a kind of universal humanism you know in recent years with black lives matter and then with the election of trump and what people perceive to be sort of a much more realized rhetoric in this country it seems that people have if anything reinforced a sense of racial identity and tribalism defined understandable do you get where that's coming from that people want to focus even more on identifying by race I do I think that one groups tribalism strengthens tribal feelings and another group and it becomes a kind of zero sum game like the the sort of identity politics can be picked up and used by anyone and so I think when we're in an era of increase like more visible displays of white supremacy I think it makes groups who are who bear the brunt of that kind of want to band together and to strengthen their own group cohesiveness so an argument like the one I'm making I realize it's a big ask not not necessarily always just of white people who may not I want to give up their privileged status society but it's a big ask of of of blacks and Latinos and and others who feel that you know also we've just been making some progress there's kind of consensus about what we need to do and who we are and were marching in the streets and and we're making some noise that we're getting some recognition like why would I give that up now but I actually don't think that we can ask white people to live in a de-racialized world in less everybody kind of steps back it's a demilitarisation of the whole thing that I think would actually ultimately benefit everybody but it's hard to be as hard to make the first move right I mean because what's happening right now is that sort of sense of race as a primary identify our isn't just happening with people of color but also people who are white sort of becoming more conscious of their whiteness you have witnessed studies and Universe cities and and being very aware of whiteness as much as they are black that's right two things have to happen with many ways one society kind of unraced and race was anything that was a deviation from this invisible right that's not going to get us to where we need to be white people have to be aware of how they're raised in society then they have to be able to achieve a perspective that sees beyond that in sees why they should be anti-race if they're gonNA be persuaded by such an argument that that's not the case with blacks or Latinos who come into the world understanding that they've been raised if you were in charge what would you say people who do think of their race has an important way to sell it undefined to identify with community how does one give that up I would say you don't have to give that up just reorient the way you perceive what that is in cultural traditions communal traditions and ties ways of belonging to each other there's nothing about blood and skin and that actually back can be there I mean I don't change the music I listen to I didn't change even the black cultural tradition I feel very much a part of I just don't believe there's anything essential about that or that it does much good to kind of reapply the idea that there is by calling a race I mean it's a group of people as a community that existed in a place in time and it was made into a race but I think we can make too I have to believe that so you didn't get to this place from nowhere as you said you moved to France thinking of yourself as black thinking your kids would be black and that's partly because of the way you grew up and a lot of that I'm assuming how to do with your father what was his notion of recent how did that influence you my father he had in a very real real politic idea of race and he also had a playful way of speaking about race I was always aware there is a wonderful op-ed in this weekend's New York Times on when it became white I always group in a household where my father who's a sociologist said Irish Irish were not always white here there I think witnesses new Italians were not always under the umbrella witness Jews were not always welcomed my father was always telling us that race was a fiction he would joke and say mother's just light skin because he's got black consciousness but he was also very serious that you will be perceived as black boys and black men and that you need to know what that means and you also have to be proud about that my father wasn't Blackbutt blackness defined
"solomon thomas" Discussed on Niners Nation
"Little bit stress on your linebackers to cover some bigger bubbles but ultimately I think the question is is candice be ineffective change for the forty niners if they do leverage these nine techniques more often than they have in the past because they have run nine techniques before but I think the key change is going to be running nine technique a little bit more on base down and <hes> and I think the question for me is can when I look at this alignment and when I look at this the set of players that we have do I think there's a player that can benefit from this outside of the obvious like Ford or or Bosa and I think I think Solomon Thomas could probably benefit from something like this because if you align Salman Thomas at the weeks at three technique and then you align someone like G. Ford or Bosa out wide in a wide and nine technique now you're putting a defensive lineman and who is an incredible athlete one of the best athletes in his draft classes position one on one against a player that is not nearly as athletic as he is and that space that's created when he's rushing the passer. Is I think something that can help get get Salman Thomas to a place where we all hoped he would be when he was drafted as high as he was and this really is a make or break year for Solomon. Thomas and I think everything that Chris Kosoric is bringing to the table. Is that type of stuff that you would wanna hear. If you're Solomon Thomas get to the passer I would stop the run on the way there. We're going to create more space for you. We're going to do these things where you can take advantage of your athleticism where you can play football I think later and so I think if anyone can benefit from it I'm looking at him as someone who can and benefit from some of the alignment changes yeah definitely I think I mean really everyone like all the good players at least right. I think are going to be guys that can potentially benefit from that extra space in potentially like the ability to create a little bit more in terms of one on one match ups. I think the important thing to remember though is that there I just like can easily see a situation where we get to the end of this season for his pass. Rush was much better than it was last year and people people give a little bit too much credit to like this alignment changes what fueled that right when in reality yes added the best pass rusher in the draft. You added a very good pass rusher in D. Ford via trade and so you've added these good players..
"solomon thomas" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today
"Ninety five eighty one catches. That's a boost, as well thousand sixty four yards success down. So everything goes up except for the touchdowns down if he gives you thousand sixty four and six it's probably not a fourth round pick. But that's fifth round pick. Mike Williams last thing on these guys. Mike Williams was the number twenty wide receiver a non PR number thirty two PR. Okay. So he's a guy both these guys Godwin and Williams might be better in different formats, although Godwin did lead the team in red zone targets last year. So that keep that. That my but Williams he was touchdown dependent. No question. Forty three catches six hundred sixty four ten touchdowns only sixty six targets, what I love though he had five games, only all year, five games of more than four targets and he was pretty awesome. And four of those five games like more than four targets. It's all he needed. So average in those in those five games nineteen point two PR points like amazing four with over thirteen. So I do wonder if we just haven't seen the best of Mike Williams. Remember he was a top ten draft pick. Right. And so, I think that's interesting. Part of this is pedigree, you know, Godwin's got a good pedigree Williams has an amazing pedigree Cup has pedigree. When I say that. I mean, you know, whether draft capital was, you know, those three guys were top three round picks in the twenty seventeen draft class. The Corey Davis. One though is interesting. And then you have Don Ross, you know, two guys who were top ten overall picks and you know have failed in different. Regards, John Ross has been I was trying to figure out just in writing the story, who would you consider a bigger bust? Solomon, Thomas or John Ross. That's really hard to quantify. But right. Hi, Ross. Ross probably Ross, I would say, Ross, also because I still think there's, there's a, a level that Solomon, Thomas can get to Thomas. He plays doesn't he? I mean injuries his his rookie season. And then you had an awful situation. I think family member commit suicide. So he was just kind of in his own head, which is understandable, but, you know, both I just haven't produced yet from what their expectations were. Sure, yeah. Yeah. I mean it's hard to compare. But if you look at that off draft class and the guys that were selected around them. I mean right after John Ross was drafted was Patrick homes. And Shawn Watson know those, those guys went after the Bengals who could have sat on one of those two quarterbacks had a great situation. We also see it should use always take quarterbacks in round one. All right. Corey Davis Curtis. Samuel in TD Westbrook, Jamie. Thanks also have a chance to break out this year. Corey Davis Curtis Samuel Dede Westbrook. So I mean Davis, I remember. After they spent with a second round pick on a wide receiver right, age Abram. Yup. And sinema pres. Yeah. I was kind of like I don't even think Corey Davis should be drafted. And you guys were like you're an idiot idiot. And so I don't I think he should be drafted. I'm not going to be the one to do it because if they added to mouths and they're getting Delaney Walker back and mar Marianas not that good. And they're going to run the ball a lot like how is he going to break out? Well, I mean, to say not being drafted, I think is a little bit too far extreme when we first had this conversation, I was in the process of writing my bus for our first magazine edition, and I was shocked to see that he was the twenty six receiver based on the consensus rankings. Fancy pros. And so I put him in the bus column just based on metal, then I looked yesterday to see whereas ADP is. And he's the forty second receiver off the board around. I'll take that all day because who else is going there in that range? Yeah. All right. So, well, I got it for you. So Marvin Jones just wide receiver well I'll do or she was running backs de que Metcalf. Marvin Jones Deontay form in Austin, Eker, golden Tate, Corey Davis. Jalen Samuels Meco Hardiman that you thought the only guy would take over him his Martin's..

"So we're back years Donald show NFL draft coverage keys year, Kirk cheers show kinda Murray goes one we'll talk about rose in a second. But let's let's just address Nick. Bozo. Who is now a man hugging. Roger Goodell right now, how do you like the fit in San Francisco key? We'll start with you. I think there's great San Francisco needs a edge rusher. They need a guy that could come off the edge get to the quarterbacks you got you got to think about it. They just drafted column in Arizona, right. Russell Wilson Seattle in Jared Goff and a high octane offense in in Los Angeles with the Rams. So the forty nine is John Lynch is continuing to try to address a defense alive for the last several drafts and get some help up front. They missed on Solomon Thomas Solomon Thomas when a university of Stanford Stanford University took a couple of three years ago years ago two years ago, they missed on him. So now they're trying to make up for that. But I don't mind this. This is a great pick for him. I think this is a really good pick for the oh, I like both sides. Obviously, we didn't see a lot of initiate. But I've seen her playing a pass. Yeah. All the way from high school down at Saint. Thomas Aquinas in Miami brother played in the league, dad plainly played the league. I'm not worried about his DNA at all. Yeah. His dad and brother both first round picks as well. Kirk San Francisco offensively Jimmy Garoppolo comes back jerick. Mckinnon I think offensively they're going to be better because garoppolos bag but thinking about what John Lynch has done so far this off season. They'd make the trae member with Kansas City. They bring in D Ford. Right. They give him a contract. So now you team up Nick Bosa with d four deforest Buckner who was a Pro Bowl this year. That's an outstanding defensive line at they've got they brought in Quantel Alexander the linebacker from Tampa Bay. You still got Richard Sherman anchor net defense their defense got better today with Nick Bosa if I'm Richard Sherman if I'm a corner for the forty Niners, I'm happy because now I'm not covering that loan. Bosa is a trend to me, he's a generational talent. As a pass rusher. Just like his brother their defense got better. And the interesting thing about this is John Lynch, certainly as as as, you know, learned defensive side of the ball from Tony dungee and in. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers DEA was they went heavy defense for number years to build a defense Bill to defense in individually. They started putting pieces together and he often side of the ball. And then that's when it started to eventually start to win games. But when you grabbed the books and Warren Sapp, and John Lynch all of those type of guys hall of famers. And I think this is in rendezvous barber. This is where this is where John Lynch has learned you know, to pick players from. And this is this is what you get. And you're getting this solder copycat a what Dungy and rich McKay. Dee back in the Tampa Bay buccaneer days. So the jets around the clock right now, they are number three. There's just under five minutes to go. If you were the jets is it a lock basically that Quinton Williams the defensive lineman of Alabama will be going there. It's either it's either him or Josh Allen one of the two because you again, you've gotta get some pass rush. You've got to date the jets had much like the raiders they don't create a whole lot of sacks. And I think that sitting at four is a sweet spot. What three? A sweet spot for the jets and a writers because if they pass on Queen Williams intake Josh Allen now he falls at the raiders vice versa, which gives both of these teams kind of something that they like sit right there in their lap. Yeah. I like when a Williams here. Remember, you still got Leonard Williams as well. So now, you got baby to Williams guys. And it reminds me of how this defense was when they had Sheldon Richardson when they had. The other guy Mohammed Wilkerson in the early days. Remember those guys were terrorists right there in the middle of that defense..
NFL Draft 2019: Notable Picks from Latest Expert Mock Drafts
"In reality isn't a difficult project. What is going to happen when we don't know in particular with this draft. We don't know what's going to happen. The number one pig came to get this thing over with. So he could really find out what's going on as opposed to all these different mock drafts that are out there. I'm right there with you. And I want to thank you for allowing me to come on the show. But it's a lot of group thing group three group out there. And that's the biggest thing that you see right now. It's a lot of my drafts. Everybody's just tired of becomes tired exercise. And we just wanna get it up to see the actually van happy. Now. How many have you done yourself, Jordan? I went back and looking I see one that was in January. Did you think that was your first one that was released pretty it's pretty close to what would be current stuff? Now, how many mock drafts have you come up with from January till now so I'll like to do one at the midway point before the combine. And then I do another one the week of the draft. So I'll be coming out with another one probably on Thursday morning. Okay. Now, how significant of a change would you have overall? He was certain things going to be changed. But the big the big pigs. You think there's going to be significant change from yours? The original ones. Now, I think there will be and I think it's going to start with calamari, and they both have those guys flip flop. Out in Nate both at the second big. And then we'll see what happens from there. Okay. So do you think your and we're talking about Jordan Reed and L draft staff writer for cover one host of the draft board podcast. You think for sure it is a foregone conclusion cliff Kingsbury in the Zona cardinals are going to draft collar with the number one pick. I don't wanna say it's a foregone conclusion because it at the same time last year everyone thought that Sam darnold was going to be the big to the Cleveland Browns just a year ago. So I think it's probably about seventy five percent chance of going to the cardinals. But we all know we just have to buckle up and see what happens during the drag because things could change at any moment. You mentioned some touched on before. Why does that keep happening years ago? It was Goff and Wenzel. They're not going to be top guys. Boom. What do you know team straight up? They go one to last year was all about darnold. Nobody knew Baker Mayfield gonna go number one. And then he did this year. It's all all about Murray, and even has to a certain degree where people were saying, oh has is going to be gone before. Let's say number six the giants pick. Now, all of a sudden, it sounds like not only may be there. But the giants may not even want them. They'll take Daniel Jones with number sakes. Why does that happen? Why are people so all over the place with quarterbacks in particular in these drafts leading up to the actual draft those quarterbacks other most important position, not only football. Sports period. It has nobody has a clue about football. They know exactly what the quarterback does and how they operate. So with that being said with these quarterbacks flopping over the past few months and even weeks, it just shows how much lack of infield that we do have. And we're not ineffective. So we're not supposed the curtain back and meet with these guys person or gets to know them personally. So we don't know what's going on in the mind that they've got them in or these other executives going on around the league, Jordan. I respect the honesty right there. You're right. Still fun. It's all about so fun to read about I get and we got to do it, and it's fun to project different things. But I guess the reality is without let's say, there's no Andrew luck there, and nobody knows for certain who's going number one without that. It's hard to project these things and the GM's arm can give anybody Dave Gettleman not gonna come out and tell Joe giant fan or whoever in the media what he's going to do it his pick. Why should he right? Jordan. Right. I mean, we saw Jon Gruden sin their whole scouting staff home. So it just shows you just how secretive these plans are and no team really wants their hands shown or what is going to be revealed on draft. They so I think we're gonna we're gonna see a while. Right. If I'm not sure exactly what the giants are going to do. But I think they're going to get a lot of backlash if they somehow don't find the quarterback future. Whether that's at six or at seventeen so let's get into some specifics here, we're talking about Jordan Reed NFL draft staff writer for cover one host of the draft board podcast. You mentioned you think the cardinals are going to take collar Murray with the number one pick. Do you think that's a mistake? I was talking before about how an organization can hire new head coach draft a quarterback in the first round last year guy. What was the best quarterback coming out less? Your Josh Rosen. And then a you later fire the head coach cliff kings, Mary you could certainly argue whether that was a good higher. Not. And I don't think it is. And now take collar Murray with the number one overall picks. Do you think will be good pick a good move for this car does organization? To keep that number one pick and take collar Murray. I think it would be and I say or I'll put it this way cliff Kingsbury, everyone likes to point out just how fancy as offense is and how well operated at Texas Tech. But it really didn't work like a lot of people were saying that it worked should have work and with cliff Kingsbury, he's probably gonna get gonna get one chance to be an NFL head coach and what better way into your guy in there. He has no ties to Josh Rosen. He was not there when the team drafted him last year, and he has he doesn't have a freelance relationship with him. But on the flip side with Colin Murray. We've seen him and his offense and everybody seems famous video circulating on. If cliff gains vary ever had the overall selection that he without question would say column, Mary so I think with Kyla Mary why such a great fit in this offense. If you think about all the great young quarterback that entered the league over the past few years and even going back to last year with Baker Mayfield. Sam Donald Josh Allen. Even Lamar Jackson to an extent all of them have have had one. Thing in common, and that's having the ability to create all script or being able to operate and when things break down, and that's exactly what column or is able to do. But with Josh Rosen and the state of Arizona Cardinals off it's a front. I think if they're able to select calamari he can kinda relaxed weakness that they have a front just because of the lack just because of the -bility he has to create scripts though, I think he would be a really good fit in Arizona. Interesting fascinated see a if they keep the big if they do in fact, take him and see what happens with Josh Rosen. And then obviously how it's going to pan out because Kingsbury Murray will be must watch to see how that works out for the cardinals. If in fact, they team up who's the team most likely to trade down from two or three there's a lot of rumors teams will to trade down on this. Good debt specially defensively. Do you see the Niners? Do you see the jets maybe trading out of their top spots here? I think the night is it gonna take if they're just because they haven't used need off of the they don't have anybody there. Now, they did trae for deport but they still need some help off of the age. I think they're sit along the interior would force Buckner Eric St. and now with Solomon Thomas transition inside. So I think they're fine on the interior but outside of D Ford. They don't have any other threat coming off the edge. So you plays both in there with that young up and coming into your your, and then you pair would be Ford. I think that would be a really good combination of front now. One thing that's a really interesting spot is the New York Jets at three because is very wide open out there that they wanna trade back just because they don't think there's a lot of value there at that. But they only have six peaks. So they wanna get back and maybe regain some of those recoup some of those that they had to trade for last year when they acquire them darnold. So maybe they wanna trade back and still get that edge rusher that they need even if Quinton Williams or Josh Allen is there. And maybe they have those guys graded similarly on their boards day. Okay. With trade him back. Maybe six or seven is still getting a guy like a month with or somebody of that nature. Now who would be the team most likely to trade up with the jets for number three. See that's the biggest problem because this similar to last year's draft is that there's no quarterback that teams wanna trade up for third spot like a Sam darnold from last year. So it takes two to party and with a trade. They don't have a partner right now. I think but maybe some team has Haskins on their board. Maybe like Cincinnati at eleven I could see them or Washington trading. Alway from fifteen up to three now with a lot of draft capital. But I'm just using example, we have teams that could straight up. So that overall selection, right? And that's why it's intriguing when you look at what the jets having that number three big rumor to be wanting to trade out of it. I mean, if they don't think that Alan is war that I don't know what they're thinking there. I wanna get more picks back. Maybe get good players. Let's say the do trade, in fact with the giants team that, you know, look, it was rumored last year that that could possibly happen is rumored again this year. Because the giants won't their quarterback. Do you think the giants need to trade up from six to get there the quarterback that they want? I know Gettleman throwing out a lot of smokescreens here. But ultimately, do you think has gains or Jones will be there at number six for the giants thing Jones definitely will be and odd just don't really know about Haskins right now. Because last week we saw that he was going to be a top five selection this week. They're saying, right. Fifteen. So there's a lot of rumors out there. And we really don't know. But if the giants won't be sure I think they should trade up to the third spot to secure their guy. Just because if easier guys go hitting trade up and get him and don't wait on anybody. Just in case team jumps you. And now you're gonna be stuck maybe reaching on through lock or even Daniel Jones who do you like better out of those? I'm assuming you like Murray the best out of the quarterbacks. Give me your take on Haskins Jones. So I have it Murray at the top. And then I have happiness, and then I have locked and then have Danny Jones right after that. And I'm a big fan of the top two guys in Haskins emerge. And I say that because they are a bit different as far as this guilty. I don't know we talked about earlier folks here. What I love about him is. Yes, he's a one year start.

"Attempted ten there were five players for the forty Niners that had above average pass rush grades. The only other time that happened was against the lions, which of course, was a win. So if the Niners are able to get to Josh Rosen pressure him move him off of his spot make him uncomfortable. You're going to see rookie quarterback be rookie quarterback. And that's where the Niners can really begin. Maybe to get their first turnover and like forever where they're going to be able to be in this game. And it's what allow them to stay in the game. The last time the forty Niners cardinals played even though they ended up losing by double digits because of an eventual defensive touchdown. So I think that's probably going to be the key to the game. Whether or not the team can get to Rosen to that end. I'd like to see Ronald Blair get some continued run in terms of pass rushing. He had thirty four pass rushing snaps against Green Bay. He had just ten against the Rams some of that may be score and personnel with the forty Niners defensively were trying to do which I hope. Wasn't give up much of points. But that was the result on the less. I think Blair is a player that is never going to be a high level starter. But is reasonably in the conversation for long-term depth guy. You know, somebody that when his rookie contract is up might be resigned on the fairly cheap. All someone like Ricky, John Francois. When he was here. He's in my opinion, battling caches Martian, and to really be a, you know, again, ideally, not a starter. But perhaps a three four year death piece that with his body type could play most special teams can really do do some impressive things on the field when his Motors really running hot. So I'd like to see him get some more snaps to see if he has an opportunity perhaps when the forty Niners into it used to be called sort of those NASCAR packages on the defensive line thinking back to kind of Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles Jim Schwartz days. But when they perhaps go with a pass rushing. Combo or or group of Buckner Solomon Thomas. Ronald Blair may be cashier smart, but ideally, Sheldon day and see those players like that sort of personnel grouping really getting after the quarterback it. Nice be nice to see Ron a player on the edge really gets them run..

"And having the ability to run every route in a route tree into really separate with more than just a run past you, but some. Of the other things that he can do. I remember watching him in one on ones, and he ran a stop route or to some people coral comeback, whatever you wanna call it a hitch. But it was about an eight yard hitch. If you will and in his ability to throttle down like you mentioned is really what's so elite that he bursts off the line. And is he sells you vertically? It is so hard and so fast and looked so committed and he can immediately drop his weight and settle that route down it's just ridiculously difficult to deal with an and it's it's nice that the forty Niners spot where we even get to talk about this that there may be too above average route runners on this offense going forward. That's that's where we're at Jesus. We have to have ridge receivers on my God. It's it's a it's an embarrassment of riches. The only is only the goal. That's so sad. Jesus. Are there's another actual wrinkle. We're talking about defensive utilization than I wanted to talk about Matt's gonna be Solomon Thomas actually, playing natural position. Holy hell. It happened. Robert Sala, apparently friend of the pod he listens to the show. He must listen to the show because that's the only conclusion that we can draw this point. We had we've been ranting for weeks about how solid is miss utilizing personnel on the defensive side, especially with almond Thomas because he's not getting any snaps at the interior and this week Solomon Thomas played fifteen snaps along the interior by far the most he's ever played in a game along the interior this season. It's the fifteen snaps. He played along the interior twenty five percent of this season's total interior snaps for Solomon Thomas. He's only had sixty snaps on the interior this entire season. Fifteen of them came in this game. He played on both sides left and right, including one snap at nose tackle. And so the question, then becomes okay? If. Thomas is playing three technique most of the time in depending on the alignment may be nose. Tackle what the hell happened? The deforest Buckner will the forest Buckner was moved to one technique traditionally nose tackle alignment traditionally wear. You're gonna see Earl Mitchell, and whomever. It is that we're trotting out there at nose tackle. And that's it was great. It was a new wrinkle. We started out the game in that defensive line alignment, and it went really really well with the disarming Thomas had three stops which is the most had all season usually around zero or one any he had three stops his game. He played phenomenally in the run game. Because he is a very very very good defender. His pass rush grade was still not great. But it was better than normal because he was able to use his athleticism against guards. So bond large. I think that's one hell of an alignment when I hope the Niners us, and it's something that it's like, yes. Do that more do that more? And I hope that's on isn't move away from it. I hope it wasn't just a one game trotted out against the division rival kind of thing. But Solomon, Thomas Mann. He's he's three technique. That's what he is. We we thought he might be something else. But that's okay. Let's play him where he's actually going to be good and let him develop there. And this was hopefully the first game in that direction. And we mentioned that a little bit talking together. This idea that you know as much as you wanna front office to be able to evaluate pure talent. You also want them to be able to evaluate talent and recognize the fit in the scheme and solemn Thomas has never been the kind of player that you would look at and say this is a guy that really Ben's on the edge. Well is going to be a natural outside edge rusher in I mean in terms of run defense, he sets edge. Will he plays hard? He's got some hustle, but rushing the passer really being sort of utilizing some of what he does have from an athletic, ability and explosiveness standpoint, it's gonna come inside. And it came inside in college is well like you mentioned this idea that you need sort of Earl Mitchell body type short Squatty guy playing knows..

"But you mentioned that Pettus was the best pure route runner on the team. And I believe my exact reply was Marcus good would like to have a word with you, sir. So why why is it that you think that Pettus is the best pure route runner, and I guess in that I love the know what you mean by pure route runner. So I think that I would identify Pettus is the best pure route runner on this team because he doesn't have the speed advantage. That market Goodwood has I think Markey's Goodwin is gonna get, you know, it's not a lot in terms of of the separation that they're going to get or what DB's we're going gonna give them from spacing perspective. But Markey's Goodwin is gonna get an extra step or two offering the defensive back. That is particularly if it's a deep shell a defensive back. That knows that he's got a Rome with Marcus Goodwin. Deep is gonna is gonna play deeper off to start than they would with Pettus. What I really like about pets in what? About him. When he was coming out. What I liked about him in limited snaps thus far this year is that I think he has a tremendous ability to understand bend and more than anything sort of lean in leverage at the top of routes right before he makes his break. I will say that if we just lineup the blaze out concept from both of them than I'll give that one to Goodwin because very few people can break out of that concept, quite like it. And so you've already, you know, exactly ago because that's exactly the right? I was going to bring up I was going to bring the blaze out specifically because that that route for those that are that are not familiar is a route that is specific to the Shanahan tree of offenses. So you'll see McVeigh run this. You'll of course, he Shanahan run this you'll see little floor run this as well. Basically, it is an out route from within the numbers, but it looks a lot like the post, and it is a wide receiver going straight up that vertical stamina and compressing the space between him and the cornerback. And then the mmediately it's gonna look like he's gonna go to the post. But then he basically stop. And comes back outside, and it's basically a really difficult route for a wide receiver to run because it requires really really good change of direction. It requires you to be really accurate with your feet, and it's just it's overall very difficult. Julio Jones is the best example at running this route. And and I think that Marcus Goodwin has gotten very very good at running that route wasn't so much of the beginning of your one. But the touchdown that he scored a couple of weeks ago was what he was just wide open near the end zone was exactly this concept. And I do think that he is able to speed is very, very helpful. But speed is only good in terms of running when you can throttle that speed back and stay in control, Dante Pettis has a he's still a very very fast wide receiver. He ran I like a four three seven or something at one of the husky pro days, he didn't I don't think it has at the combined, but he's still very fast receiver and Dante Pettis has a very different type of separation style from Archies Goodwin. Marcus Goodwin has very quick choppy. Feet, and you can get in and out of his brakes in a different way than Pettus candor, both good. But I think right now that their respective points in their career Marcus Goodwin is a better route runner in that route rang has developed over the last two years because he wasn't that way in buffalo. If you would say markets could win two years ago. I'd be like. Yeah. Pettus maybe better runner than than monkeys Goodwin. But I think right now, Dante Pettis has the the most promise, and I think if he can get better he may be better than marketing. But right now, I absolutely think Mark is gonna win is. But not only the best wide receiver, but a better route runner than Ben Dante Pettus. I think that's fair to say that perhaps Pettus has more promise absolutely than than good. When like you mentioned Goodwin's development, particularly in the last two years, and he mentioned this in training camp last year that he really began to sort of take pride in not just being that that speed guy.

"Born ninety seven Dante Pettis seventy seven they of course, off also been well, Dante Pettis has been injured as well. So I do think that they're getting snaps, and I do think they're able to gain some of that that valuable experience that they would need that players like say Solomon Thomas aren't necessarily getting because just don't have that many interior rush positions. But you do have the opportunity to play Trent Taylor in the slot. You do have the ability to play Dante Pettis all over the place. And so I don't know that Garcia necessarily limits. The development of. The wide receivers like some other positions are being limited. But but I do think that to your point if injured and you're getting sixty percent at that point. You've got you do have to see what else you have with these other players, especially now that Pettus is going to be ready to come back from injury to sort of drag this out or not drag this out but expand this to kind of a larger roster perspective. I wonder how much I don't wanna say favoritism but Shanahan continuing to release sort of like you mentioned he's giving snaps to these younger guys to identify guys Garson as the starter and Earl Mitchell Mitchell defensively the starter over say DJ Jones who may not based on what's happening practice. He may not be at the level that URL Mitchell is, but we don't know necessarily if he's not getting a ton of run in games. I wonder how much of this is cow Shanahan not necessarily punting on this year. But recognizing that like you mentioned this is a team. That's not particularly good. And and likely won't win more than three four. Five games, if they're very lucky, and how much of this is him saying, look, I'm gonna keep up this sort of, you know, a perspective, or, you know, keep up his image that we take care of veterans that we keep veterans around and happy, and we don't push him aside, and whatever because maybe that's part of the long term plan that that eventually he knows these young guys the high draft picks whoever they are guys like Jimmy Garoppolo. They're going to have a high draft pick this year. When that whenever that player comes in. He's gonna be immediately identified as guy that sort of has a lot of expectation writing on him. I wonder how much of this Shanahan saying let's keep veterans happy now. So that is we have to go. Find those perhaps one or two pieces in free agency that that compiles a complete roster. Guys wanna come here and play for us. There's probably a little favoritism, and we know that Garson was one of his guys it's one of the it's one of the first signings that he made and it's a player that has a history with Shanahan in his offense dating back to his Washington days. But I do think that the the kind of styles make fights. And I do think that Shanahan is very clear in that. You're going to have multiple styles that you're gonna wanna fight with. And sometimes you're going to have a wide receiver that separates with power at the top of the route. That's going to be anquan Boldin. You've got Marcus Goodwin who separates with well. What used to be speed? But now much more precise route running than has been in years past. You've got Dante Pettis who separates with quickness at the top of the route. You've got Trent Taylor who separates underneath with his quickness. And his ability to run a whip route these players that you can deploy like chess pieces around the field. And so even if Garson were to be sat down I've question whether or not we have another player that could get a four yard reception. When you need for yards on a slant. Who's gonna have that body frame to keep a corner off? Him and still catch that ball and traffic. I think Mark is good. When is the best wide receiver the forty Niners have. But I don't know that I'm gonna run him on drag route with three yards to go to catch that ball and traffic unless he can blow by linebacker with Trent Taylor. He's not gonna body a receiver underneath. So I do think that Shanahan is creating a complimentary style of wide receiving corps..

"That's a good. I would say maybe maybe five, and that's if you think that Pat Mahomes is very legit. And that's less. Andy Reid than it is him. Or did if panel homes and count Shanahan were to have an offense of baby. I would just I would start a new religion. I would I would I would pray at the altar of that team. It would be amazing. But, but yeah, I I just think that you know, you gotta put bathroom in context. He's he's back of a reason his his I don't know that you want the best. For your quarterback to consistently be toughness. Yeah, I mentioned that on Sunday. He gets a said he gets a lot of Atta boys like CJ Beth really take some shots because it's ridiculous right out in rhythm. Fifty percent of the time because he doesn't have great pocket presence. And like you mentioned he is a backup. In addition to that he came from an offense in college, Iowa, not traditionally known for sling in the rock all over the place. So he's sort of coming in at a deficit to begin in the idea is maybe to groom him into a serviceable backup. But there's not weaken weak out your best qualities quarterback can't be. He took another shot on the chin, and he's still hanging in there. Yeah. I mean, he had some throws that he just flat out missed. I mean, he missed Goodwin on the fade route in the red zone versus cover three. He missed kit on wheel route. He just he is even when he has time sometime. This is why he's just slightly above average because he misses open receivers. And that was the thing that you want. Your quarterback to be able to do in cal- Shanahan's offense Shanahan's going to make receivers open. What your quarterback has to do is hit them that should be the expectation for NFL quarterback in this game, especially because the pressure rattled them all game this about they're just didn't do that. Yeah. Heat the pressure obviously got to him in. In addition to that missing receivers when you do have them looking back into tape Shanahan. I will say is still as good as anybody..

"It is another one Wednesday nine fans everywhere. Definitely wanted. The mercy rule and they're running clock in the fourth quarter and this week. We welcome back. Good friend of the pod back from these fancy job interviews and football coach. And it's won miss Jared brand how you doing? Doing well, my friend. Thanks for having me back. Thanks for keeping the seat warm. Absolutely, dude. While it's been a few weeks we last chatted, but it's good to have you. It's under unfortunate circumstances because the forty Niners, of course, lost in spectacular fashion versus the Rams spectacular in the worst sense of the term because it was just good old-fashioned beatdown. Yeah. It was for maybe the first four minutes felt like boy this might be a game. And then it got ugly in a hurry and stayed equal is ugly. That's I mean, honestly, I mean, ugly and hurries exactly. And I was actually surprised right off the top in how close the Niners were despite the fact that the Rams, of course, are probably the best human football right now that really it started out all about turnovers and sloppy play. But the Niners were really in it, or at least had a chance to be in it all the way through into almost the third quarter. I mean, you've got the opening drive stop. And then you have the CJ Beathard what I'm calling the inter fumble. Because I don't know whether or not that was an interception or fumble. I don't care what it was ruled on the fee. Field. It looked like a bit of boat. So I'm gonna call it the inter fumble. And then you've got the drop tart interception. You hold the reins to a field goal. And then Breda fumbles more like, you know, he got the ball ripped away. But either which way it all counts the same you allow a touchdown still just ten zero. They fumbled a snap to get hind the chains the series ends with maybe football's first six men punt blocked play where Martin zoysia just as like, nah, I'm gonna let this guy run through Novick deal. But even then it's fifteen zero still a to score game. And then you've got the third pick. You've got a TD pass to cook. At the end of the second quarter, the forty Niners their most impressive drive down twenty two zero. They score a TD. They're ready to get the ball back in the second half. They could do that whole Madden score at the end of the first half get the ball back score. Again, it they do that. It's fourteen at twenty two it's a one score game. But then they get sacked on the opening play the second quarter. They throw a pick on their last chance and the drive. I mean, then it just starts to avalanche after that. But really they had a chance with their opening drive in. The third quarter to just be down one score. And that's kind of been the story of the season. It was an elegant tank until you know, Aaron Donald to Goater. Yeah. And he took over in in horrendous fashion. But the I mean the entire game as you mentioned just felt sort of indicative of where this team is at it's like one step forward. Just enough looking good to make you think that there's a legit opportunity there, and then they can't get out of their own way. Whether it's tart dropping what looks like a one of the easier interceptions. You're gonna get in the NFL, you know, fumbled snaps balls being ripped out in ability to really get a good drive coming at halftime, although small things that you know, not just good teams..

That's my guy. What's up? Hey. In the meantime, a male therapist. I've had them all over the world, Murph. I've had them all over the world. No kidding. In fact, this is the first male I've gone to I've been to women many times all figure at this point in time. I talked to one of my own. Hey, just kidding. But any case you had this whole thing with the USC? He grew up USC UCLA. There's a lot of this inside of you. Then. Is your years on the as beat that pulls at the heartstrings, maybe a little bit something? Nobody's looking obviously. You're a hard giant fan. You've written several books on the on the on the boys. You also go to the games on a regular basis. This is when Murph shines dude late September when the giants have no chance, you wanna find Bremmer for you, go out to eighteen tea party one sixty of course, you, of course, you know, what? I don't I'm not going to condemn you. I'm not going to criticize you I'm going to say Murphy BU and follow that follow that dream, baby. Because I was doing the same thing where if you can't blame yourself a competitive ball. I confess that. I'm rooting openly for the Yankees. Okay. Go ahead. Yeah. Because he looks pretty good in that unit doesn't he I want to tell anybody who wasn't watching mccutchen. Okay. Seventh-inning one nothing as Yankees tight game. I saw this inning. That's what I tuned in yours familiar came in. He lost the strike zone. Couple of guys reached he had a big Sunday. But he didn't have it last night now mccutchen up, and it's a one to count familiar was throwing some nasty stuff. Yeah. He is NASA hopes he's nasty familiar. Yeah. And and and catching up there Fallon off nastiness, and then spitting on nastiness and then Fallon off nasty to to Phalle ball two to three two tough. Take spousal ball. Takes a walk earns tough walk mccutchen with the ball for gives like a like a like a. Yeah. Took off his forearm. I was like oh my God. That was more passion than I think he showed his entire time with the and I'm not knocking mccutchen. Now. I think the giants the atmosphere newts the atmosphere. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I think they sucked it, Murph. We think giants you think muted tones. Tranquil. Yeah. Very tranquil bunch over there. So that that caller is kind of haunting me we had maybe half an hour ago. Who goes there's got to be some accountability some point and why are guys on the field. They're really just can't contribute anymore. It's still like the giants are kind of retroactively thanking guys for their service. And it's been good in some cases. But at this point, man, it's I think it might be time to gut this thing, and you gotta get some new life in here. We're gonna have all winter discussed that we should probably get ready for the forty Niners in the Vikings now in Friday football forecast time, which goes down Friday. Are you going to dare to wait into the Viking forty-nine or waters? Dude, you're forgetting the opening day tradition. Aren't you? Okay. The paulie MAC, I'm shocked. You would forget this. The only time every year. I guarantee I preview raiders Niners at the same time is is opening day. So yes, of course, I'll wait into the Niner a Viking game. Because then the rest of the time. It's anything goes. It's a it's a lot of Bengals. It's a lot of drew Brees. Whatever brings me the winds, Murph. I gotta uphold my name on the streets. I'll be interested to go. I know where I would go. Go ahead and say right now that I would take the Vikings and give six and a half. I think the forty nine I've just the McKinnon injury is going to be tough. And the atmosphere is going to be tough in the whole Jimmy G train where he's never lost a start. To stop at a station at some point at trained. Can't keep rolling on the tracks unimpeded and the Vikings are an outstanding team all environment. All true coming up at thirteen wins phenomenal defense. And so I just got the skull chant to on top of everything else. I feel like it's going to be a difficult match up. And I'm okay with it. I just wanted want to sort of put it out there that it's okay. I want to do that. I want to do the good ones. You know, Robin Williams. It's not it's not your fault. It's going to be okay. If the forty Niners lose their opener. It is. Okay. But I'm not thrown into towel. Just yet. I'm not writing off as a what's your scenario in which they win boy turnovers who goes off like they're not going to sack the quarterback, right or does deforest Buckner. Get your why not why not pull Russia way through a couple of times. Just marsh. Get hot. Yeah. Does does does Solomon Thomas? Get hot. You know, you know. He's just yeah. I'd love to see that. Solomon Thomas needs to do something this year. Oh, okay. I see where he just ran this. Now copes talk to you just ran in John Balch first game that he homered in his first career game. Yeah. I do remember that are, you know, Iran in the box for for his first two games in which he homered in his first two games, by the way, the home run in the first career game. He became just the eighth giant ever to Homer in his first career game. And we're both into the bay. I'm waiting to confirm on that right now. And I figure the distance and the location of where the ball landed. We'll tell me so what you're saying. Is that Chris Shaw is John Becker? I'm saying we're hoping not. Hoping for more. Putting that out there in the universe is a dastardly thing to do. To my guy Kershaw. How many Docker max out at in? Minor league homers. Can we look that up? Do you ever go to ball cube dot com? Do you ever that one Franny turned me onto that one? By the we need to tell you that we had our fantasy football draft last night. And he can be our league and France and made his debut in the league just like I did last year and unbeknownst to him one of the producers of the board ops named his team. Tell them Franny censure. Okay, good. Now Franson comes into the draft board, and he sees this. And he's quite frankly, he's offended. He's offended by this easily for any of them. He wants to know who it is. Yeah. Now cope. Did he come to you asking you who was a me said who's this guy? And he used some foul language that he did he did foul. Did you out the guy? Well, of course. Opponent in the league duties commission. So it's so we can go into so that its board op Josh hall lube who works on the mardi show. I'm becoming a big fan of this kid every day. There's just something about the vibe this something about not knowing our names. It's all part of the mystique. I like it when he called us out when he came on the show, he famously worked our show and asked which one was Murphy, which was mad love it. He didn't know. And and he he then said when he came back. He said, oh, yeah. You guys called me Cambior's resident unfunny comedian. Did we I don't remember doing that? I guess we did I'm pretty respectful a comedian. Generally. I don't think we did. Maybe I would I would Murphy. Well, anyway, the kids got my respect he comedy said I heard that turn this place on does twenty one bombs as a Fresno grizzly and twenty two as a Connecticut defender to Connecticut to the point now where okay that's shell territory. That's in that same liberty and a half to get Shaw out of the Bowker round. We have strikeout numbers though. Two hundred and three in five hundred twenty two ABC's that's better than that is better. And then in AAA that year, he hit twenty one bombs only sixty four and three hundred yesterday was not a strikeout her home run all or nothing, dude. Izzo PS that one year. No nine over a thousand in Fresno and his up in Connecticut was eight eighty six by the way. I see Chris shell went from three strikeouts. On Monday to last night. Maybe we trim that down the one tonight, and we're getting somewhere, you know, just like to see him grind. This is a rope. A base it is like an opposite field, right in the gap. I was excited when he grounded out last night. So I was watching them play left field to how do you feel about his defense? Oh, that's gonna be. That's gonna be hit and miss. That's the scene. That's going to be. Yes. Yes. So there you go. Anyway, back to the Niners Markey's Goodwin. Joined us earlier today. He's an enjoyable, dude. As I said at the end, the interview I said, he communicates at a high level. He does no joke. Whether it's definitely good to listen to tone, timber of his voice, the things you didn't do the passion things. He has to say, he's passionate young, man. Yes. And we talked about everything from his teammates to the Vikings to Colin Kaepernick and Nike and you'll hear it next marquees Goodwin on the MIR from actual six eighty the sports leader..
