"sports journal of" Discussed on Greg Bedard Patriots Podcast with Nick Cattles

"Like, hey, I have an opening, I'm gonna go for the quarterback. Well, that's not actually the best thing 'cause guess what? Josh Allen's gonna run for 50 yards if I do that. So I understand Christian bar war making those errors and it's not an indictment on him. But guys like Matthew judon and von gotcha, who they gave a lot of money to. You know, those guys can not play on their own and do their own thing. And I think earlier on in the season, they were doing the right thing. They were playing within the scheme of the defense, and I think that combined with the turnovers, which you didn't see Mac early on in the season to me, the reason for the turnovers later in the season. And I think he has 6 turnovers in his last four games, including the fumble. Has to do with, you know, being a little mentally fried. It's been a long, long process. There's a reason why you don't see rookie quarterbacks even lead their teams to super bowls. Forget about winning one. It's hard and now it's 17 games, plus pre season and all that stuff. It's very hard. So to me, they are. There are different team than they were early in the season as part of the reason why I don't think they're going to be successful on Saturday night unless Josh Allen just completely vomits on himself, which people knowing me. I would be chuckling at and be being very, I would be very happy about that. So we'll see what happens. Not as cold, inclement weather, but just a couple weeks ago against Atlanta. He threw three interceptions. So. Yep. So you're going to be a cold night in Buffalo kick-off 8 15 Saturday night patriots bills. Greg, I think we, I think we emptied the tank here. I think we've got pretty much everything out there as far as what we're going to expect in this game. Good stuff. And you didn't even, you know, as a young rookie, you know, at least you didn't turn the ball over in this podcast unlike some other rookies around here. So you held onto the ball. Maybe that's a good sign for Matt, come Saturday night. That's going to do it for the Greg bedard patriots podcast, writing glasheen and for Nick cattle. Of course, brought to you by bet online AG.

"We, as we go here against the dolphins and in the postseason look, remember, let's go back to where this team started the season, and everybody freaking out about the wide receivers. What do they have? You know, agile or hopefully we'll be back at some point. But this remember, this is still a too tight end team. This is one running back too tight ends or two backs and two tight ends one ride receiver whatever. It's a very receivers are not the focal point of this offense. And so there are limited snaps in any event, I think that Kendrick Bourne certainly has rebounded from his COVID stint where he said that that was giving him issues. He looks a lot better. He certainly one of the more valuable guys they have on the team. Jacoby is not going anywhere. And so could I see wilkerson fitting into that three or four role if they need be? Yes, certainly. And the thing about wilkerson is that he's also good on special teams, so a lot of the little things that people want to say that Nikhil Harry does well like his quote unquote blocking. Walker shouldn't do that. He's a big, strong kid. And so it would not surprise me in the least if that's the last we've seen of Nikhil Harry and her patriot uniform. Barring injury. Hey Greg, just one thing with Christian wilkerson, we've gotten a lot of calls today with people thinking, hey, is this the guy that could get involved the deep threat? If you know about him, he played in the Ohio, Ohio valley conference, like small school, he latched on with the Titans. They really liked him, released from the Pats picked them up. He's been here for a bit. Drops seem to be his biggest thing, but if he is that fourth receiver, can he block? Is that something he can do? Because we've seen the killer Harry out there a lot. We give him credit for doing it. Is it something Christian? Wilkerson can do if he has to be on the field for it? Yeah. He's a big, he's a big, strong kid. And to answer people's questions, no, he's not sort of any answer to anything. The most he's probably going to be as a three or four wide receiver or a 5th wide receiver in the NFL who contributes on special teams. You know, you're absolutely right during the training camp and the preseason very inconsistent. He would look like a world beater one practice and couldn't catch a cold, the next practice. He's a good guy to have around, you know, seems to know what he's doing. It looked like he adjusted to some play calls really well today, even anticipated a few checks and alerts by Mac Jones. So I think he fits into what they do, but, you know, look, it's, you know, if healthy, it's Jacoby Myers, Nelson Aguilar, Kendrick Bourne, and then sort of wilkerson and Gunnar chef ski. You know, I look at that as their sort of their 5 man unit right now and I think Nikhil Harry is on the outside looking in and you know I would say it's more likely than not unless he shows up on Wednesday in his world beater and practice that he could be an active for the rest of the way here.

"At the ballpark, both during the season and even extending into the postseason, there is definitely, you know, more, I would say 20 somethings involved. It stands to reason that those people are going to be louder and more energetic than an older crowd or a corporate crowd. So that's contributed to it as well. Yeah, and I'm gonna add a fourth one. I think the current climate in Boston sports has people really starved for a winner in a good story. You've had a couple of years of patriots struggles. The Celtics were an underachieving kind of mopey team last year. So I think being able to embrace a team like the Red Sox who are true underdogs who seem to genuinely like one another who seemed to like playing this game in front of these fans and have really shown it time and again, just with that kind of comeback kids sort of attitude is really refreshing at a time where they're just aren't a lot of great options. I mean, the bruins are obviously I think a team that fits that model as well. But the Red Sox are here on the cusp on the precipice of getting to a World Series and getting to play for a title. I don't think anybody expected that at all. So I think that's a really big one, too. Yeah, no question. You know, this is sort of playing with found money at this point. I think that was somewhat true when they beat the Yankees as long as they got past the potential horror of having their season finished with a one game playoff at home to their arch rivals. Then I think fans began to embrace this team as something of an underdog. And that feels funny to say when you think about the resources, the Red Sox have as an organization. But probably most fans didn't have a great feeling about the chances going into the division series matched against the rays, put the payroll issues aside, the raised dominated them during the season. They finished 8 games in front of them during the regular season in the standings. And yet the Red Sox figured out a way to have a couple of walk off wins at home and sent Tampa Bay home, and now there's this momentum that's gathering. And yeah, I think some of it has to do with the struggles, the Patriots have. There's a bandwagon effect here with, well, maybe this team that we hadn't expected to be in position to do so might be the team closest to winning a championship of the four majors in Boston. And I think people are happy to even if you're on the bandwagon, they're happy to be on it and happy to be at the park so the next three nights. And we are guaranteed three games are gonna be a lot of fun. So again, make sure you follow Sean mcadam and everything that he writes and tweets over at Boston sports journal.

"Boston sports journal, Greg bedard and Greg, I guess the morning after question on the Patriots 25 to 6 win over the jets. Was it a good winner or a bad win? It was a win. I would not say it was a good win. I mean, look, when the opponent are rebuilding opponent, gives you four interceptions before even the halfway point in the third quarter. And you need to basically make some defensive stands in the fourth quarter to win that game. It's not a good one. It's just not. And I don't know why people are trying to talk themselves into it. It wasn't. I mean, a lot of the stuff that they had issues with in week one from past protection, stopping the run getting off the field in key points. I mean, they got a little bit better at that. But in general, there was a little bit of improvement incremental overall, not with the run defense, I thought it was, I thought it was worse in this game. The jets almost averaged almost 5 yards of carry. And really, if they just stuck to the ground, they probably would have been in this game till the very end. But no, I did not think it was a good win. It was a win that it was a win that they needed to get. They got it. What's not right home about it? Yeah. I guess in addition to the things that you mentioned with the run defense, the protection, obviously, was was rough. And the trend Brown injury certainly is a huge deal. They start one tackle. They have to yank him, you know, Durant there early in the first half, just because things weren't going well. It just seemed like Mac was never able to get comfortable in the pocket. I guess the question is, how much of it was on game planning? How much of it was on personnel limitations, whether it be down a tackle or getting to know the receivers where it's just still, you're not able to open things up. I guess as you wrote in your column for Boston sports journal Greg, everyone's got to be a little bit patient. And I think that's the problem is nobody is patient. You want to see them open it up. And it's not just to get to where you were in the best days of Tom Brady where the offense could just march up and down the field and score. I think even seeing what you saw from Mac Jones in week one, gave you enough confidence to think, okay, they can do a little more than they're doing here. And you can see it almost felt like a step back offensively where, I mean, just yards per attempt. Everything was even more conservative than it was in week one. In a game where you've felt like they might have been able to open it up a little bit..

Robert Kraft Gives Honest Assessment of Patriots Drafting

"Heard from Robert Kraft yesterday was a man who was completely honest about where the the team is in a lot of different areas. I wouldn't will get into this but I don't think his quarterback comments were Something to really weigh in heavily on but I do think that overall I mean him talking about, you know, the draft specifically the personality just sound thrilled with having to Shell out as much money as he did and he basically admitted that the only reason they had to do that cuz they didn't draft well in recent years and and he committed what a lot of us have said where it's not sustainable to do that. You need the draft to be the lifeblood of your team so that you can do other things like you can't just every three years song ten free agents. It just it it's probably not going to happen be it's not economically feasible. And so I thought it was very refreshing for Robert to to talk to the assemblage yesterday and and really be honest and I think you know in judging from the comments at Boston Sports Journal com from my column off of this press conference wage. Think on a whole I thought the Patriots the Patriots fans reacted very well to it that are really like, okay. Well, at least now we know that the person in charge realizes is a isn't happy about it called last season horrible and B thinks that the team has made correction and is moving in the right direction. That's all anybody ever wanted to to hear from anybody at at one page place and they heard it from Craft and I think it made Patriot Nation breathe a little bit easier. Not that they weren't confident in Bill Belichick rebounding in any event, but I just think it reinforced that. All right. Well, we're still the Patriots thought we had a we had an off-year didn't go well we're going to correct things were going to get things back on track.

Is Cam Newton Ready to be Patriots Quarterback?

Is Cam Newton Ready to be Patriots Quarterback?

"The biggest question of all and of course, I'm talking about Cam Newton Cam Newton ready to be the quarterback for this team or false pause, as of today. It's false and I wrote a column this weekend for Boston Sports Journal, that basically laid out and I'm talking to different people both around the team and also around the league about where Cam is and there's three things that need to go on Nick and it needs to go on now and it needs to go on every day off of the day until the season kicks off and number one. It's cam has to lose weight. He can't he can't play a 250 anymore. He's not a young buck. We saw dead. You know, I thought this but it was confirmed by a couple of NFL people that I I talked to and I trust they said that cams legs got heavier as the season went on and off and run as much he wasn't as a as Elusive and the big thing is not only that but your legs are everything when you throw the ball, if you don't have your legs which you did earlier in the season, they threw the ball a little bit better. If you don't have your legs then you have nothing as far as power and things like that and also just accuracy if you don't have your legs then you have to compensate upper body and things just get all out of whack and that's what happened. When cam last year. So in cam I will give him credit on the I am athlete podcast. He did say, I think he was trying to lose ten pounds. I'd go less. I think he needs to get to 3235. I think that gives them a better chance to be sustainable. He doesn't he doesn't need to be 2:50 to run over linebackers anymore. There aren't that many linebackers that are 2:50 a.m. Should be in a business and his age are going to be 32 a plow on those guys over. So there's that there is he has to get into he he has a he has to get with her own coach. I hope he's working with one but he better be working on one that works on his mechanics all the time every day. Get back to where he was at the beginning of last season get it out of her system because he needs to learn how to just be able to flick the ball. Ten yards instead of making a whole body convulsion just to get the ball out in the last thing is the biggest thing Nick and we've talked about it. I thought is he needs he needs Express 24-hour premium tutoring on the Patriots Playbook and what goes on as far as all right. If the defense does this then I can change to this and what's my audible what's my check because I know everybody's all excited about Johnny Smith and Hunter Henry and you know, we you can also factor in The athletic fullbacks that they've wanted to have for two years. Dan Vitality is coming back supposedly and also they dropped adult and Keen to play that position because there's a choice that they want to be more like the 49ers with use checked. And so it's all nice and dandy that they have two tight ends and athletic fullback and people are absolutely right to say that benefit of that is you get match up issues where all right, if it's safety then we're just going to run over them if their linebackers then we're just going to run past them. We're going to throw the ball. That is great and all but it doesn't mean Jack if you don't have a quarterback who can't see the defense see what's going on check to the right play and take advantage of the defense and last year cam wasn't even close to that. So unless all those things happen and he's not there at this point. He is not ready to be the starting quarterback for the for the Patriots. Do I think he can get there and be better? Yeah, but we'll have to see.

I know and you know, I don't mind looking like at the end, but I thought I don't have any inside info but I'm just going to say one of the rookie tight ends or both of them. It could be Devin asiasi. I think they might see what he did last week and he got open a few times even though I don't think he was Dynamic at all in the passing game. I was a little bit underwhelmed by that but I would really if there was a game for them and sort of the idea. I think we've talked about it before song the idea with Dalton..

All right moving on to the Patriots week to Thursday coming up against the Seattle Seahawks week one the Cam Newton show first chance to see him in a Patriots uniform certainly a successful debut. He was terrific on the ground seventy-five yards rushing and two rushing touchdown. In the air a bit of mixed bag and Greg Bedard would like to see some improvements moving forward. I thought the cam at the end of day. I think he completed like 79% of his passes. You know, I wouldn't say they were first of all, they weren't very high degree of difficulty. I think when went and I graded my graded the film and of course failure loves to nice. I have my chart out get the dog. I don't think I had him for a plus throw in the game because I didn't think any of them were that tough. I thought that the one really tough throw was more of an element catch over the middle then a great Newton throw. I thought Edelman kind of bailed him out. I thought that there were a couple of high passes including the Edelman drop. Yes. It was a drop but it also was he was wide open in the middle of field. He had to leave his feet. I'm not saying that Edelman shouldn't have that that it was Newton's fault. No Edelman should have caught the ball. He should have but dead. Past should have been better. And then there was another throw to element in the flat where it was high and Edelman took an unnecessary blow in in. Those are the type of throws. You do get with Cam and it's something to monitor going forward. That's just when he misses he misses high and those passes could turn into turnovers. They could turn into injuries for some of them receivers and tight ends..

"You've got Jacoby Myers for Sanu and you have Jeff Thomas being waived. Why is it Myers? Yeah. I just think that he's just steady. He knows the offense. Jeff Thomas is a guy who hasn't been on the practice field a ton this summer. So it's already going to be uphill for him. And I just think that I think the Meijer what he did last year is more consistent wage. Build off that he's a little bit more of a known commodity and I think they need that in the receivers. And I think yeah, you know, it's going to be a risk waving Jeff Thomas, you know in his speed but then again, you know, nobody drafted him. Nobody. Nobody else signed him. I don't think he got a huge bonus from the Patriots. So the interest wasn't great. And so, you know, the hope is you get him to come back you sign him to practice squad and develop him and you know, I think that's sort of the best place for him cuz there aren't any padded roster spots this year. Yeah, people know that you're one of the best talking about offensive line played because a lot of people actually want to do the work and look at the offensive line and all that. It does stick out to me that you're keeping cajuste T and you're getting rid of Cunningham. I've read a lot of good stuff about Cunningham and how he could be the swing tackle. Why you going with cajuste here instead? Yeah that that was another sort of coin flip for me. I just think that could use was you know, he was a third-round pick last year. He was hurt all last month. You got off to a really rough start and training camp, but I did see some flashes and he Nick I'm telling you. He looks the part. He looks he looks like a future tackle and including would possibly left tackle ability cord Cunningham's done a really nice job this year. He got off to a fast start and sort of slumped. So it's it's a coin flip for me. And it's sort of guess work because we haven't seen the last week of camp and really that's that would probably determine it but I'm just going to go with the last visions that I saw was could use of going up Cunningham going down, you know, I want to see if I get a little bank for that third round pick and you know, if worst comes to worst if there is an injury at tackle, um, you know, I do have Joe Cooney that I can can move out there. I can't sign a veteran tackle. I have options..

"You a hell of a deal and also Boston Sports Journal that we'll also they'll also hook you up. There you go. Boston Sports channel, as always. All right big picture here, you know, I've been seeing stuff Greg all over the interwebs the last few days about this team, you know, bleacherreport.com Eating them. I think it was Nineteen as a staff in the NFL you go back to the ESPN football power index. They had the Patriots around 9 or 10 in the league as far as a playoff hopes and overall ranking. Is this a playoff team? You pretty confident there a playoff team. Are you kind of wavering? What do you thinking going in here? Absolutely. I I to me there is little doubt that they took our playoff with 9 mm with you a hundred percent. Yep. Yeah. I mean, I don't know what sure it's not, you know, it's not your older cousins Patriots team, you know, it's going to look a whole lot different but change can be good and and look at the look. They have a great secondary you have a they have a could be a great offensive line. They should be able to run the ball. I was actually texting with my crease earlier today. We were talking about some stuff and I said, you know I said this team this team needs to rush for three thousand yards this year and month. the Ravens set the record, I think it was last year or two years ago. They said it at about thirty four hundred yards. I think at the Patriots get to the upper ranges of you know, 2829 hundred. I think I think they're on course to have a successful season. They're going to need have the lead they are going to need to play good defense, but you also have one of the best coaching staffs in the league. And yes, there's there hasn't been a lot of continuity on offense. They're going to have work through some things but so is everybody else. I mean everybody else is as in the same bucket and while I don't think Bill Belichick is invaluable. He's pretty damn good at what he does and I have a lot of confidence in what he does. There are two people I never bet against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick and Tom Brady's gone, but Belichick is still here. So I have a lot of confidence said and also Nick the other thing is, you know, what do you think the divisions going to do? Yes, Buffalo is going to be good. You know, we'll see how far Josh Allen can take him. I'd rather have Cam Newton dog. Josh Allen, but that's me the Dolphins speak to that's me to the Dolphins have had a ton of changes in their front seven and other places that's going to be a work-in-progress the Jets of the Jets.

"But you know, you know, maybe Lamar Miller's chomping at the bit and off. Of a sudden if the Patriots don't and basically the rule is you come off pup as soon as you pass your physical and so if Lamar Miller's agent in Lamar Miller thought that he was healthy enough to pass physical they could file a grievance with the league and it could get messy and so it's the Patriots don't really have the ultimate Choice really the ultimate choice is with the player and she must have you have felt ready to go and and you know, so it was a little bit of a surprise but I do think it I think it complicates things as far as roster cut down cuz now Jake Harris is down for a week or two. Now. What do you do? You keep Lamar Miller and that access somebody else at another position. When you looking to be talking about behind the scenes when you look at your 53, I mean, the ultimate question is Muslim our Miller. Does he have a spot? Does he have a place on this team right now? On my final fifty-three, which I just finished. I'll be right enough for bsj. I do not have them on the team. I have running backs on the team. Yep. I have Sony Jake white Harrisburg head as the four running backs My Hope and this will also be something that will probably talk about at some point My Hope Is that veterans? Like say Brian Hoyer a call back which I ultimately decided to release him to steal a spot for others on the roster that Brian Hoyer Lamar Miller, maybe some other veterans agree to come back on the practice squad. I protect them every week and then all of a sudden you have a built-in taxi Squad they're going to have to do a lot of selling. I think I think teams across the league with these new rules with the cobit. They're going to do a lot of selling where they come to these players and they say look, I know I know this hurts right now. I know you probably thought you weren't a spot you probably did but this is a numbers game right now, and we want to park you on the practice squad. Because we're going to need you. We it's just one of those years. Yeah, and you know, the cobit circumstances the quarterback thing is very interesting. We've heard guys like Bruce Arians and others talk about maybe quarantining a quarterback just in case because the quarterback room guys are close to each other. You don't know how Covetous going to affect it. Now with all of that said Greg the evidence in front of us right now is that the truck was doing a great job with covid-19. You're looking at Camp who has the injury history instead of who was dealing with an injury. Just going back a few days ago. Yeah, it is. It's it's going to be a similar situation in when they they were last year where they were probably confident that nobody was going to claim Brian Hoyer or sign him and then all of a sudden the Colts came out of nowhere near you know part of it had to do with the Andrew Luck thing. I don't think and you know, what's helping in this situation with a Brian Hoyer as opposed to years prior is that there have been open choosing games? So there haven't been any injuries at quarterback across the league. We're normally, you know, we've lost about you know, four or five quarterbacks by an hour, you know, at least backup quarterback things like that and preseason games. And.

"I don't think he re-signs with New England because New England was not going to go the two years and everything that I read Brady was more upset about the lack of a commitment from that team and Belichick most notably. That's why he left so I don't think Belichick was going to give him the kind of contract at Tampa stepped up and gave him and good for Tampa, but also good for Belichick. I don't think Belichick should have extended himself two years for a guy who's 43 years old for as great as Brady has been at some point. You've got to cut it off and be responsible to the organization. I think Brady wage Get paid for what he had done versus what he was going to do. So I have no issue with Belichick saying no, we're not going to give you the two years in Tampa. Listen Bruce Arians. He had to do what he do. Right? That's a that's an organization that has consistently they needed somebody and you can see it. You know, we're going to get into the Leonard fournette stuff. But you know, that's the trickle-down effect of bringing somebody in like Brady. Nobody was dying to go Tampa before Brady thier one last thing about the wide receiver situation Greg. We talked about it over a text last night. It seems to me that the timing is not going to be great for the Patriots to try acquire somebody from outside organization. Maybe a Curtis Samuel some people think he is available. He has that link with Cam from his Carolina days, but what about the evaluating of the position and where the Patriots are at now? I mean when you look back Belichick's history with evaluating wide receivers. Yeah, he hit on Edelman he hit on Branch he hit on Mitchell. Unfortunately the knee stopped his career. He hit on evaluating West Palm. And you could even give them credit for David Givens. But when you look at it, most guys that he brings into play that position to be a one or two guy. They haven't worked out, correct. Yeah, and and you know, I don't know how much blame to give him. I mean obviously he gets some of it it's his show. I do think part of it has to do with them, you know sort of the transition from college to Pro, you know, but some people will argue that it's never been easier to identify wide receivers coming out of college because they throw so much now I saw how many wide receivers went in the draft this year. How many went in the first couple of rounds and of course the Patriots just sat out and didn't take one in the draft so long..

"Be sure to tell them as a sports journalist sent you and Greg man since the last time we spoke a lot of news happening. Let's start with Mohamed Sanu on this very podcast our first episode you had said keep an eye on a new he might be gone because of the money well now we look up and he's gone Greg. Yeah, Nick. I just think that it's sort of along the lines that we talked about and and in the first episode we talked about like, you know, he's he's making six and half million dollars a year and really what are you getting for that six million dollars extra that you that you that wouldn't be getting from Jacoby Myers or a Devon Ross or a gunner of schefsky who are other options for sort of the bottom of the receivers. And when you look at it, you know, n'keal Harry obviously is going to be on the team. Julian Edelman is obviously going to be on the team. Now what you're saying Mohamed Sanu is your number three receiver all of a sudden. Look how slow they are. I mean they I mean it could be the slowest receiving Corps in the history of the league, So he wasn't going to be one of your top three receivers you were going to have put somebody else with speed out there along with that group and considering this teams going to play a lot with multiple tight-end wage. Fullbacks and things like that could happen. So it's like so what are we doing here? And I think that the I think the fellow check made right choice in terms of not compounding is error of sending a second round pick which actually ended up going to the Ravens when all of a sudden sudden will help them compete against you this year and paying a six and a half million on top of that that just would have been it just would have been done and I'm glad that bill made choice. I don't think the team is sustained substantially hurt without him to new on the team. I think it helps along the lines of making them faster going into this year, which they need to do across-the-board and I think it was a no-brainer. I mean you look at this trade to go back that in a second before we continue the discussion about the wide receivers now currently and what this team has on its roster. This was a major with to put it nicely Belichick. I think this is one of the worst trades he's ever made as the head honcho in New England giving up the second round pick for a guy who played eight or nine games and Greg when they made that truck last year a lot of the justification as far what they paid to bring Sanu in was because he had that extra year on his contract versus Emmanuel Sanders..

"He I know a lot of people that don't like can they throw out, you know, he's lost photos it eight games in a row as last eight games and you know, he was never truly a winner and you know on the radio a few weeks ago. Somebody called me and I'm He's a loser. He's a head case. I think people remember the bad about cam which is the sulking the towel over the head walking away from the podium at the at Super Bowl which by the way, Chris had was sitting right next to him squawking and you know celebrating winning that Super Bowl which is why I came got up and left not a lot of people talk about that. But anyway, I digress I think there's also a lot of good way he Embraces the game and I know a lot of people listen, I've heard the word energy enough to make me throw up but he does have the energy he does have the you know, he Embraces the game and if you talk to teammates from Carolina from his days in Carolina and at Auburn, he's a great teammate pretty much everybody to a man stands by him. So if you think he's selfish jackass, nobody likes him. Nothing could be further from the truth. I want to jump n'keal Harry Gregg, this is Greg Bedard Patriots podcast with Nick cattles episode Numero Uno sponsored by Bette us the pioneer of online betting McGill hairy dog. Where's he at? I can tell you that I'm not enthused with what I've seen from him on the field. But you know from the people I talked to around the team. They're just they're just fine with them and they think he's going to be they think that he is going to be part of this fully bald Persona that that would cam gets out there and he does his sort of things in the offense and how they run the offense that's wage to create a little bit of space for him to be the you know, slant bowl over a secondary guide type of player, right? That's what they Envision and also, you know, the back shoulder has gotten a little bit better, but I will say well, you know, I I've had a lot of concerns about in the Keel how impactful he's going to be..

"He showed up all the time. He was like Jerry stood his like favorite quarterback and even when students have been out there. He hasn't really looked his way all that much and yep. You think he's a good player. I think he's worked developing. I would like to keep him on the team. But again, I think it's you're looking at Mohamed Sanu Devon Ross Jacoby Myers and Jeff Thomas. I have two for you have for for two spots and I'm going with the new and Devon Ross right now because I think Devon Ross is really the only legitimate other option package X boundary receiver, even though he's not the biggest guy in the world. He does play well out there. He can backup n'keal Harry and spell him and sort of, you know, Harry needs a kick in the ass. They don't do that, but I would say it's the for me it's the receivers that I'm having the toughest time with and it's really going to be it's going to be up to Bill what he wants for this team. And and you know, is he willing to swallow that second round pick to recover six and a half million dollars considering the cap crunch next year he could do that because that's how the six and half million on next year's cap. Yeah probably worth about twenty years. Million in real money next year. Yeah and the Patriots right now. They're in great shape when you look at the cap. So we're going to look at quarterbacks in whether or not Greg is concerned about quarterback play. Am I concerned about what I've read about quarterback play, but before that I'm and Greg is going to remind us about bet us. Oh, yeah. Definitely Nick this this place is I go there all the time to place my bets and actually we should talk about this at some point, but they have options over under at 9. I saw really really I'm hitting me over,.

"Now I have off Joann Williams getting traded. I think he was a cornerback on a lot of other teams. I think he's a cornerback but they're so deep at cornerback that they don't really have room and they haven't had the numbers that safety so he's been there and and I do think I think they we saw this at a few times last year when he did get on the field. They like matching him up by tens because of his physical profile. He's like six. He's like six three he's long. There's a definite need for that. The rest of the safeties are kind of on the smaller side is kind of more Stout. So right now I have Williams getting traded but for the tight end reason, I don't feel great about that and dead. Just thinking and looking at the 53-man that I put together, you know, it's sort of it would be total Belichick to have Terrence Brooks who's a good player really good special teams played. I thought he should have gotten it more of a chance in the base defense last year instead of Duron Harmon cuz he brings a physicality in the middle of the field that they don't really have. He'll nail people in the middle of field. You'll never see drawn harm do that, but it would just be like Belichick to have Terrence Brooks out there. Basically, I can't say that he's a starter but let's just say he got a lot of action training camp and then to let him loose when they feel like Adrian Phillips is healthy and other other things come in to to fruition at safety package, then all of a sudden Juwan Williams is now brooks' off. Joann Williams is now on as sort of a guy who goes in between cornerback and say all right. Let's let's look at the kicking game before we get into some quarterback play cuz walk Get to that too in a few minutes, but let's talk about this you use the draft pick fifth round pick on Justin Moore wasser..

"Forty five in for Doug, Russell at the judge a Bank sports desk. It's brian. Thanks, gene. Josh mcdaniels is a name that's been linked closely to the Packers head coaching vacancy. Really since Mike McCarthy got fired in early December. Lot of positives. When it comes to New England's offensive coordinator, he has previous head coaching experience. He was with the Broncos in two thousand nine to two thousand and ten is their head coach. He's young relatively young forty two years old. He's ofensive my good wishes. Something that a lot of Packers fans have clamored for since Mike McCarthy got fired. He comes from the Bill Belichick tree of winning. He may be a great coach. But is he a great fit for the Green Bay Packers right now? Greg former Packers beat writer. He's now with the Boston sports journal doesn't necessarily think he's the best fit. But Dr joined Greg Matzek on sports central on six twenty WTMJ last night. Here's what he had to say about Josh mcdaniels knowing what you know about doc mcdaniels knowing what you know. About the Packers. And the way they operate in Green Bay would that be a good fit? I don't think. So I think that, you know, the number one reason is that Josh will want to structure things how he wants to structure them, which includes bringing is own personnel guy. And it sure seems to me that Brian good Kinshasa's is entrenched there in in Green Bay. And and the other thing is that, you know, of course, I've been up there covered the team. I know how things go and. You know, the Packers are a different organization, and then the other NFL team in terms of, you know, there's a expected openness, you know, with the team because it's publicly owned, and and you know, I just don't know how sort of the patriot way would mash up there. But I mean, that's secondary. I think the number one thing is Josh is gonna wanna line things up. How he wants to line them up. And I just don't see the Packers all of a sudden changing course and saying, okay, Josh mcdaniels. Yeah. You can do whatever you want to do if you become head coach. I just don't think that's going to happen. That's Greg Bavard of the Boston sports journal joining Greg Matic on sports central right here on six twenty WTMJ last night. Now, Gina was interesting when we had Larry McCarron on earlier this morning. He agreed with that sentiment to a certain extent that if a head coach or a potential head coach wants to come to Green Bay and do things his way it might not mesh very well considering the power structure. As it's currently construct. And maybe that speaks to is some Bill Belichick's accolades having done so well elsewhere in the NFL because there is that patriots way. Right. And then there's everybody else does business and maybe the two just don't mesh. It's got to be the correct situation in college hoops, twenty second ranked Wisconsin back in action tonight. They're looking to rebound from an eighty three to seventy six loss over the weekend at western Kentucky. They're hosting Minnesota. At the Kohl center. Tip off tonight is at eight o'clock. Elsewhere basketball off day for the Milwaukee Bucks. If for the Marquette golden eagles buck- bucks, excuse me. Back in action tomorrow night at home against the Atlanta.
