"And i believe that cars who he is which is like above the line maybe not a true franchise Star but a guy that will win games and josh jacobs. Solidify that backfield henry rugs twelve overall pick last year. If they could add one more guy that is a real difference maker on offense they can win some of these shootouts and they did well against the chiefs lesser as you remember Rugs is such a key guy after tough. I know he's put on some muscle is that old trope But they kind of need one more guy if they really want to win some of these shootouts. If their defense is only going to be met maybe two because they don't have nelson aguilar. That was maybe overrating john brown last year. I remember some big games. Ask taken aback by how much you like. I mean maybe i'm over radium but they're starting rugs. They're starting Brian edwards. They love brian edwards. They love zeta-jones. They are also an answer to who are three receivers who have never top five hundred yards or six hundred yards in a in an nfl season before mcnutt never not not one of those three guys i've ever done anything and may in edwards and rugs are just entering your two. That's maybe it's a little unfair. And maybe they're gonna be great but they better be right. I guess about that stuff scouting. Yeah especially they. Wanna get past the broncos right greg bronco's number two. We need a good division. I know steve super-busy likely are during the season. But if we can get steve back on at some point once the season really take shape and we decide who's right and who's wrong about the broncos someone gets to have a victory parade over the other guy and i'm just gonna sit from the from the stands and enjoy it all. I can't wait. I'm hoping they live up to the potential. But i'm just saying they've got they've got to average twenty four points a game this division to to even have shot and i don't know if that's going to happen unless they get the takeaway john. Let's get those fanta points like the rams got last year with all of their defensive scores. Take on steve. Why she's not like a smart move within. Nfl media it's like that's like steve was back on. Nfl am back in the day. It's like i don't know where a lot of that that crew is. But steve still right here. You know what i'm saying. And steve's you're going to get a text about four minutes from now greg from being like don't you ever cross me on the show don't you ever don't you know who i am to me. I'm hard man. I'm hard Steve tell first of all. Get your steve. Why songs emissions in everybody be a part of the show's history forever. The podcast g mail steve listeners. Find you this season. I know you're all over the place. Yeah look. I'm going to be here from time to time No podcast no podcast. The flow has has has met. Its maker shuttered. Bummer okay. it's it's Yeah it's unfortunately In the ether. But you can find me on the twitter account at eighty nine. Nfl now game day and all other pretty much nfl. eighty Check out sunday. I know that black college football hall of fame game about that. Aren't they going to play. That is that different than the to the game. They were hoping to play at tulane at some point. No no this is different. The game a two lane is the week after the super bowl. That's going to happen. February nineteenth that is the hp legacy bowl. That's that's kind of the black college senior bowl. It's going to be week week of workouts. Up to one hundred draft eligible players they are fighting scout and all know. This is an actual game to kick things off tennessee state and grambling the two of the most historic hughes in college football history. It confused me. Because it's after to tom benson stadium and ken i got i kind mix it up a good job by benson good a two lane like the benton's also help fund uelmen stadium. It's like uelmen stadium at benson field and everything too late university. So yes depending on and speaking of benton shout out to everybody in new orleans the gulf the gulf coast especially in the path where we're seeing a new jersey new york pennsylvania delaware to with the storms man. They're they're going through it so we can only wish the best for them brutal. Yeah i was thinking. What's that the raiders have just signed k. J. right okay brian. Here's bradley link gus. Bradley link grave digger. Hit the drop. Say i can't believe he was out there for this line. He was six he was number sixty seven. Top one hundred growls risky move by grave digger. Writers were you know in the show chat over the line there of whether it's worth the breaking news k. j. right was ranked in in our top top fifty. I think free agents available. So i think it just cleared the line that is that that was worth a top one hundred player top player number. Sixty seven yes this out there until now pick up pickup that's grave digger and hit me the drop again gravedigger. That's grave digger. Like he's he's four of six from behind the arc at the y. And all of a sudden he pulls up from twenty eight and says let's see what happens here and guess what swish baby. That's one of the. Yeah you better make it or else. Everyone's looking at you sideways. Who do you think you are steph. Curry but connected connected. He rattled it in very interesting to watch. How the raiders. They're they're fascinating team this season and We'll see how plays out. Thank you mr bush. You're the best and greg will be back tomorrow. Well yes on. Nfl dot com and then on nfl network after that with the.

"So we have two guys ever had defense and so to your point about derek carr. I agree with you. It's not his fault they haven't gone the playoffs. You know At one time was by sixteen but he has do more. The offense can make a jump this year gilo better to wrestling but primarily defense different tests. Make some plays. That blew three games late last year. So that's me as the key the key area this year. what's unfair. Maybe it's unfair to may because we don't know who's making the final calls ultimately you do. Okay we do know it's but you can't. You can't help. But read into the fact that the raiders have invested more draft capital in defensive backs in in safeties. The position that you know played is kind of an expert than any team in the league. And they haven't necessarily worked out there still there. Like i think trayvon mullen could be good. Damon arnett star their morgues. There they picked hayward as a free agent. I mean don neighboring spin kind of a bus so far like those are a ton of picks and you kind of associate that a little bit with mayock and they're not working out like this is when i when he says. We need to be a playoff team. I kind of think it's like we need to be a competent defense. Because i've had a big hand putting together this defense and it's been one of the worst in the nfl competencies different key. They can be. They'd be like milroy defense. They should be fine off into the top ten last year. Should we find this guy. Jacobson like he's got a big year can enjoy because a nice little secondary piece. They got the better. I think people think he's reaches stealing but he's not close. Some he was the receiver in college is already in my book. The third best in the league and he wants to be the best and ben against him. So i think that's a key piece teams can't can't defend against you can't put safety. You can't put a quarterback linebacker on. We gotta really scheme to stop. That guy's got a lot of tools on offense and defense has to be not embarrassing bad illinois via much progress vic personnel. But i think. I think the raiders may when the best offseason acquisition found. That's gus bradley. Right coming to the defense. He knew talked about a guy who knows how the scheme with maybe not a great and they've got unique and he he's he's a winner in terms of beating guys and double team and stuff like that. But if you've got a pass rusher in terms of putting another linebacker on the same side like he'll lineup him crosby on the same side when you get in the regular season. He'll do some gaming. How much to gus. Bradley likes to do again leaving the corners out there in zone protection and getting after front. Do you think can help out this defense. Yeah definitely i think that's a big breath. Refresher just dramatically like could defense simpler much last year and the guys who are trying to think about what they should be. Assignments should be able to do that but last year. I was a problem. So simple. defense guys can run and react better and isn't terms as personalities. Nowadays most optimistic like happiest guys are men in my life which is a huge nothing august. There was more of a hardcore kind of interface. Kind of guy gruffly. So i think based on the on the whole attitude change of these young guys definitely been welcome as well so just like you have had exactly. Yeah grow the same. But i'm gonna look. I'm looking into my crystal ball dick and we're going to see in this later so just play along and i see nine. Eight for the raiders in twenty twenty one. Is that optimistic pessimistic. Or is it right on. That's probably pretty close. I mean like what the vegas or under still seven and a half which i think is a little low. I think the offense service in the offense shouldn't be good the line. I said they got rid of the three veteran veteran guys. Ronnie hudson gave jackson browne. Who definitely won't power big time guys and they should be fine. Death is again but they'll wants to be good enough. I think you're running. Game will be fine so often defense. I think the defense did they make a big jump on a desk bradley and back within do better than i may. I think laminated is definitely a fair at pretty probably pretty accurate goal. I know it's a little rain. Abide don't wanna let you go before just because you were there everyday like what happened in my guy smoky brown. He won the award in mayock. Jon gruden won the award this year in someone. Tell me if i'm wrong. But i'm pretty sure he got the most amount of guaranteed money of any player across the nfl. This offseason that did not make the team and like zeta-jones made the team over john brown. Like what what happened here like this is the type of stuff that does make you. It's about the structure that like. Dan was talking about the beginning. Like what what happened there. Fake when john brown signed here he looked at their roster disaster. Laura we've got rugs edwards draft picks. I get that. I thought he might be their number one. He was pretty good last year. In bummer one. Wow no. John brown not drummer year last year. But i think his his problem was he came and didn't realize how much coaches love. Jones coaches they love h jones. I can't like fifteen catches last year on guess and got a million dollar pay increase this year. They gave them a million dollars more than one point. Five me last year so they liked him allies and gray always as in the best shape anyone on the roster and smart guy. john love a veteran receiver. So i think john policy surprised during camp that. Hey i'm below say jones and so at some point i can't be below say jones. I'm gonna play play somewhere so Yeah ideally y'all give guy thirty forty million dollars and then cut him as kind of ideal had deal worlds. But john you get back up those prices on like the pool season tickets. Or whatever like hanging out on the sideline thing if you're if you're just throwing three point two million dollars away. It's actually. I think it's one point. Seven five was signing bonus no one point five salaries offset so we signed somewhere else. Traffic you will that but so two million dollars. You've you've pretty much on fire which is not not good but again lose history of this team's transactions over the years it's not uncommon occurrence. The failure only on fire pretty regularly. So jones plays well. No one's gonna care about this week. Six last year. I was a big surprise. Aloe agents can do that but you should be able to be fine. And there's offense make some place for me every now and then and speaking of fire as we let you go vic and thank you so much for your time you are. You're a guy that's respected. I'm sure in that building. They all love vic. Maybe sometimes they yeah. That's a badge of honor as we all know. Maybe you could use your cloud within the team To replace the digital flame With the real deal whole get us back. The the everlasting flame. The al davis flame just one thing to work on the season navy if you had some extra time big fire hazard if you're a real fire amount of another actually pull it off from dangerous. I like the idea where we'll i'll make some calls and next time vixen. He's gonna share some examples of the team disliking him and that's going to be fun. I'll be good all. Do you want me to tell. I know it's off the off season. Best this season and thanks for joining us are stricter. Had big go there. He gave so much time. And it was great But my one of the thought. When i think about this roster is i don't know if darren wallet gets better i mean. He was basically uncomfortable in the last six or seven weeks of the season. And if you get that guy that is going to be more than good enough..

"You know. He's he's versatile wide and line move them he can block. He competes he. I mean he is like super legit. You know when. I saw those joint practices against the dolphins dolphins. Eric rowe is their designated tightness. I you know that's the guy. I showed on waller. They and he was given it some the row one his battles to before rookie. He's just too big matt ryan. Throw the ball nine feet near. He's going to catch. There's nothing you can do regardless of your coverage and that's a great tool to have with hayden hearst It's the other option a tight end. I mean what jesus. But i mean pits pitches real. What people really want to know. Though steve is should they select kyle pits with the fourth round. Pick in their fantasy. Draft cassettes gums going downs downs. All right all right there you go. They're not going to run it in. Kampot you throw to pit team the The listeners by the way who sent me their rosters full of my faves from the fantasy spectacular. I don't know sold my takes better this year. But i don't remember this in the past but everyone's just sending me all the rosters of all my favorite. So that's cool down and also in fairness because we did throw some shade earlier daniel jeremie also a color analyst. That does not have nfl experience. So that's better than me as well. He climbed the mountain is. That's true he works for a team. That's that's true. Meena meena is another one that stands out but i love. We need more of these. I think they add a lot to a booth alongside like an ex player. It's the perfect perfect mix. Let's now move straight into it. He is a stalwart senior. Writer at the athletic covers the nfl. He covers the raiders. And maybe nobody does it better. Welcome back to the around. The nfl podcast vic tayfur even got his last name correctly pronunciation. This time i'm on fire. How about you vick. i'm on fire. let's go all right guy. He's kind of like maybe amn. The best covering the raiders. Come on all right vic. So your boots on the ground. With the raiders. This is a big season obviously for that whole organization and before i get your opening thoughts. Let's just hear from the general manager. Mike mayock who spoke with the media this week and made no bones about it. It's time for progress in the form of relevant january football. Here's what may i had to say. We think we're going to be a pretty good football team. we're not hiding from expectations. I think john and i were both tell you that we feel like we need to be a playoff team this year. And i don't think there's any doubt about that. And you guys are all going to put that and your headlines and and i understand it But we're not i mean. That's what the expectation is. We think we've done The infrastructure work necessary to put us in position. And we gotta take care of business. Well how say you victims. Do you think they've done the proper amount of infrastructure work to make this a playoff team. I do enjoy advice to put it in our headlines. Like hey this guy. This important jazz focused on this but I thought i thought. Actually your four. For jon gruden so i would thought last year might have been kind of a doer di on a year but i get the time line now on this year. It's a tequilla for derek. Carr contractors is the last year before they have to kind of extension. Mike max paul himself on hoc- a little bit so i think they've got more talent on defense. Obviously i think Yadda mugabe was a big time signing off. Our mortgage is really good safety Tcu i still question adapts. Death is still a pretty big issue for them so but i agree with the whole. Playoffs are blessed of metallica. I'm not quite sure they're when white there yet but there there definitely gotten a little closer mac. Looks like he's in pretty good shape. He might be competing with isis. Like the best best in shape over fifty guy not to you there steve. No i'm very vic knows. Vicky v a vicar. Back the miami herald dick years. Were you there like ninety i was. I'm stuck closed. some old. yes we're back their longtime longtime ago. I can't remember how far back spoke a user. Here's a have. Here's what i hear when when people say like you know it's it's a maker break year for for who gruden has got the ultimate you know landing landing pad. I mean for mayock. I mean you know you know mike. Mike's great scout does all this scrutiny. Final say i mean. Mark davis ain't gonna pull the plug on grew to fibers left on that deal Well may i might have been speaking about himself. And maybe derek carr to me. Maybe it's a little bit of projecting he might know they need to be the playoffs or gruden. We'll find someone else to but the problem here right vic i mean and mike mayock. Frankly probably the problem here these. These are systemic issues that maybe go beyond the quarterback. This team could score points. We were just talking about it. And it max. Being set up as the sacrificial lamb here like i i. if. I'm a raiders fan. I feel good about the basic structure this organization for years into this thing got some bad batteries. Signings bad draft picks last three or four years in before that you know we've had one winning season years. That's a lot. A lot of a lot of bad draft picks lot of bad freezing signings aside. I think hopefully got right this year. And then one big bullet to shoot that was in gateway and he by all means and better. She's gain weight. Wants to show is like a three guide on pass rush specialist. He's come in here. Max crosby really connected there. Maximum great shapes. They feel they have like chew wheel. Bona fide pass rushers the first time a long time so for them. That's been a huge issue. Stained by mentioned merry earlier them had a real center fielder. A safety for awhile actually make plays vicence charles. Woodson woodson was. You're not wasn't as prime when he was a second time. So even that's about the high bar you would think you would be..

"You can't get a read on the preseason but look clippings where he's coming in with a very warm seat We'll see what's up with steve. They cut another receiver that he drafted. you know who or keyshawn johnson. Keyshawn sean sean. They caught him. I mean how many receivers they're going to draft and cut. That's two from the same class team. Know their team. No practice their like team. Arizona like what chandler jones deandre under hopkins. Aj green. you got a whole bunch of veterans. That just like haven't practice don't practice. I don't know is that. Is that going to work. We'll see we'll see anybody We have any others One way or the other before. We did you the vikings team team team. I think there should be good but man not a good summer for the vikings gonna. I was gonna pick them to the playoffs. I did actually but no left their offensive line. Maybe looks worse. Nowhere smith pretty thin the same problems they had a year ago. Looked like they could have them again. But i just. I saw a headline like the biking solve their tight end situation with the chris earned trade which is silly but also have the fact. You just look at the back. Not that this is the thing that exists or maybe it does because there's a bit of a Sports card boom rebirth. Happening right now. Look at the back of kirk cousins football card like if he's their quarterback seventeen games. They're going to move the ball and then davin cook is one of the very best running backs in the league. Who could do it all you got. Just in jefferson year to you. Got adam feeling there. So yes i get you lose. Irv smith was a guy. People are feeling good about but this team is going to score points. Still right and then at the this. Why put them in. The playoffs is my rambling setup. And if the d. just gets better than it was last year and mike zimmer's defensive coach. Come on this team. My crazy the could be i would think anthony bars back. They've got the pieces back. But i mean. Look i've known zimmer. For a long time. And he's he's like your textbook curmudgeon and i love him but could lower. He is like at a whole different level of curmudgeon his You know you know i. I think he's coming under a warm seat as well. And so i don't know i mean. This is a team that i liked coming in. And i don't know if i dislike them anymore. Coming into the season but there seems to be like some weird mojo again there every day. I don't know but it just seems to be like some different sauce. Come out of there so you lost some key players. Do i mean it's a factor and just to clarify you referring to the kirk cousins drama. They've had some issues. With vaccination rates and mike zimmer being outspoken about it and cousins being outspoken and talking about his little plexiglass cube that he might live in this season. You think and in general from a broader perspective. Steve because you so plugged in like how much of a factor you think that could play into the season the bills or another team where it's a. It's obviously a hot point inside the inside that building that it could mess up. Some seasons potentially in terms of how plays out absolutely. Could i mean in the colts. I mean we'll see this is this is again urban urban. Meyer said out loud. Everyone else's saying secretly. I've heard them say secretly. And this is something in especially when it comes to the quarterback position if all of a sudden you're rolling your role and all of a sudden you guys gotta take a powder for possibly two games because of because of a positive test or whatever you're you're constantly where you were last season like are we gonna get through. Are we going to get through whereas other teams. Don't have that concern. I don't know i. I think it's i think it's going to pop up. I mean i think there's gonna be some issues that popped up last year that are going to surface again this year across the whole league for the nfl scheduling wise and things like that despite all of the incentives to get vaccinated tom. Brady's vaccinated at that surprised me when the bucks announced today there at one hundred percent vaccination rate. So we know tom. Tom took that jab dan. He did as part of one hundred and has been outspoken about it too and it works for some coaches. I guess putting the heat on the team a little bit and others. It seems to be less effective. Which adds to curmudgeon. Nature of mike zimmer. Why can't i have one hundred percent team. Why do i guns these guys. I want to ask. Steve about the falcons just because he covered them. I don't feel better or worse so that was kind of thinking. They might be a bounceback candidate because if you look at their their numbers last year like devi away points scored and stuff like that. They were maybe more like an eight win team. That had a lot of bad luck and lost a lot of like heartbreakers. And they're not all bad. You get arthur smith. You have a real quarterback like what was it like first of all you're in the booth which is pretty bad ass like that school those not. I'm not. I'm not trying to put you in a box here. But not an nfl player providing analysis not not being the play by play guy. Providing analysis is awesome. As for me to hear anyone do that and you didn't amazing job. I couldn't believe how comfortable the whole booth was. I was like this is better than the monday night. Grew right here you. Dj shockley You guys are great. And what do you think about the falcons. After being so kind of close with them for three weeks. Well thanks for that. I mean the falcons frontline talents. Good defensively they're going to be better if they stay healthy. I mean that front seven they may not have you know an individual winner in terms of pass rusher between pease creative stuff and they've got some linebackers. I mean foia logo on it. Really good dion. Jones really got michael walker out of fresno man. He's a player so they're going to find ways they're gonna use donte follows a situational pass rusher. They tried to atmosphere three down guy last year. That didn't work. They got these. Who's being a deep can be created. Aj tyrrell's really a corner. I mean i know the film on him last year because you saw i'm getting beat sometimes didn't look great but i mean he didn't have anyone else so teams could really do some things off. He's going to be a good corner. Got some other issues you know. They've got to work through but if they have one injury i mean if they have one injured any position. That's when you're hitting they're going to have an and their offensive line situation. I mean they had josh. Andrews left guard which was a major concern and he broke his hand. So now they're going to start. Rookie jalen mayfield. They were in. That team like didn't have enough money to sign their rookies. Or whatever marquette bringing this up that they had no one on the roster but you're actually kind of speaking to that point that the bottom twenty players on their roster might not be league ready. Yeah i mean it's it's going to be one of those things. They suffer injury to their quickly. Going go from team trying to compete to a developmental team do are they going to ready your up close with kyle pits to that guy. Jump off the tape and off. Yeah often immediately. See darren waller. Is dan waller comparison in terms of speed being able to be guys catch balls and traffic. You know he's got a bigger wingspan than waller. He's one of those guys..

"When greg knapp who was a really respected quarterbacks coach dies tragically in a bike accident. You know he was supposed to be guy. That was really gonna help zac wilson and then the carl lost an injury just devastating to what the jets need to do on defense. The vinny curry then. He's rotational rusher veteran. Not as big a deal obviously but still then leaves for the season with a blood clot issue The offensive line is supposed to be better. But if you're reading about this team issues on that line right now mci becton did not have a good summer microflora even called him out on it the offensive coordinator and i just think if the line isn't ready to roll If a secondary that is just so green and then they take and they release. Bless them austin who is their most seasoned quarterback this week the co- the secondary is really dicey without carl lawson. It's going to be very difficult to get a push. I liked the interior of that defense But then you have. And then on the other side of the ball questions offensive line and unproven backfield and a quarterback zach wilson. There's gonna be a lot of bumps and when you factor in with greg also fact said that this is a loaded. Afc which. I agree with It's going to be tough for me to to see the jets winning more than about four games this year. And and i think i think you could still come out of the season saying we're going in the right direction. If they go. Well maybe not. Let's say five. And twelve or something. But i think this is just the way this summer is played out puts them behind the eight ball and they were the last team that needed Babb breaks this summer and they got them. And i've recalibrated my expectations this year as a result. Then you bring up an interesting point and we can have the conversation about offensive line concerns with twenty teams right now. I mean that's real interesting but more so with the jets having four wins when i'm looking at the team's picked in the top five six seven this year. I'm having a hard time to think that the majority of those teams are not going to be picking in the top five six or seven next year. I mean it's all of those teams nine. That's not usually how it goes. But i know i mean and it looks of them were probably slide. Someone's gonna have some injuries and things like that. And it's gonna but i made just coming into the season it's like. Wow okay jacksonville. You know falcons the jets. I mean what's what's to make any of those and some of them probably will get to w we know how the average go but just coming into the seasons like wow man these all. These teams still have a long way to go to seem like they're going to be effectively competitive now again. That that'll change. We know how the wheel spinned. But i think that's a really good point to the jets. You don't t- more than four went in that division alone. I mean that. That's a tough. That's a brutal division. And so you know that's something that's weird. The offensive line play indices team down in the bottom kind of making headway. The two things that i that that's been deep tito land. Jim's brain counterpoint. This is the mark sess ler staff. Here where like a week ago. You were literally like playing the lewies song and leave them and then counterpoint. Number two is the only thing that matters about the jets. And maybe that's not true in terms of wins and losses but the most important thing is that wilson and you feel better than ever about him after this month. So i feel your there. There was some bad luck. And certainly lawson is the number one thing to be. You know. that's a concern. And i just. I don't know i don't i to me. It was a it was a positive month. Kazak wilson played. Well just put it this way. Exact wilson didn't have the positive month. This would have been an outright disaster of a month for the jets but to your point. There's nothing more portland zach wilson. Having a big month so yes. I think the jets can have successful season without having a nice. You're trying to protect your protect your heart. Let's revisit after the jets go down to carolina. Get that week one victory over the team. I'm putting next that. Feel worse about and the panthers. 'cause i watched their preseason game with darnold and just like oh yeah still sam darnold. I know it's one preseason game but remember how everyone likes to say. Well as the starters against the backups. You can't like you can't pull too much from that you know. That's what zach. Wilson should the. Okay well sam. Darnold was with a bunch of with all. His starters against a bunch of backups in the third preseason game then look very good had multiple turnover worthy plays held. The ball too long ended up getting like a two minute drive at the end of the half that kind of saved his day. But just didn't see. The processing didn't see like making quick decisions. I think matt rule is gonna help them out. I think he's going to be better in carolina but it was a reminder is a young team on both sides of the ball. They've got their own line questions. You're right steve. We could say that about twenty four five teams but man darnold could use a great line. He definitely doesn't have one. And i just think i think they made a huge quarterback misfire and in that little extra tape Cemented it for me. They could've taken justin fields. That could've taken mack jones. They weren't interested. They wanted sam darnold carolina. I still have a lot more question marks for i check them out of the picture. I think going to be better. I think you know darnold can improve. I think they're gonna be a better team. One of those teams are gonna be like okay. You know matt rule coach. I've got. I've got a little faith in him. I do to one. It was just like pre-season confirming my prior views. But we hadn't mentioned that on on this. Show that i feel like his his performance in the priest formation by perhaps abs- absolutely but he had. If you go watch that half he struggled. And it was starters versus backups. And he struggled the same ways that he struggled when he was in new. That's here here's a half for you guys as a team. I don't know if i feel worse about them. But i don't necessarily feel better. That's on a cardinals. i mean i know. They've added some some defensive talent. They should absolutely be better on defense. Jj and chandler jones and all these guys playing together but what are they man. I mean what. I still don't know when you look at every other team that division i mean seattle's gotten better a front of the offensive line. We think we got better. You know at receiver and some of their other visit. Durant clearly have done some things. You know quarterback things they wanna change. Even though i think defensively is going to be interesting with some of the coaching drain. That they've had on that staff in the niners. We'll see but it's like arizona. Do we even have a shot to compete so that that's a team..

"You're not feeling so hot about after this past month. I tried to convince myself the giants were going to be like the most watchable giant since the pre eli manning era just a little bit of spice on offense lot of weapons around. They had a lame month Golladay and canarias. Tony are back on the practice field this week. So maybe they get out there for week one but their offensive line doesn't look any better and sometimes teams tell you what they think about their own roster with their transactions they made about seven transactions on their offense of line in the last week. Just like picking up anyone's leftovers and hope and they can slide it in like it just. It doesn't look any better so if you've got a bat offensive line quarterback that's probably not going to overcome a really hard situation with an offensive line and a play collar that has an inspired a lot of confidence that he's gonna like scheme his guys open. It just feels like the same old giants. Yeah you added golladay and tony and barclays back and so they should be better but i'm not. I think they had a rough month. I'm not into the giants right now. I that was that was my number one team to golladay. How many times does he practiced. I mean it's not it's not even just the thing right right and so i was kind of like i'm not sure but you know who else guys in you know it's weird. Science is the denver broncos. I was really. I really love their defensive talent. I like their offense line talal but they still look carefully here because greg literally. He can't even stand up right now. He gets so excited. Talking about the broncos. Like okay okay. Okay so you've got the chiefs who can score oh wait. They're playing broncos. The broncos what charges you can score the raiders who can score the broncos. Can they score. We know teddy to gloves right. He's great. I'm sure defensive. Coordinators right now are flipping out having face teddy. Be lock know what changed here. So here's what's going after you. Here's my point in this era where we're supposed to have all these offenses fan galleon quarterback developers and things like that that very moldable clay that very moldable clay now sullivan drew. Lock sure but people. I've talked like do locked everything right. But when george payton came in from minnesota to be the gm teddy bridgewater has guys played safe in this one game sixteen to thirteen that works once. Maybe twice in the nfl. Show me a team. Show me a team. That's routinely held people under twenty points a game and only six. The thing is just like twenty three twenty. You know what i mean. that's thirteen and so teddy. Get the twenty-three technically game three sutton hamlet. Tim jets we jerry. Giovanni alberto noah fan devante williams. Melvin gordon i think they can score a little bit calling the plays gonna go. This is straight out of the matt nagy school of victory. Oh i mean look again. I'm pulling for the broncos. I love their talent. I love teddy bridgewater. But i look division and look at the afc teams a really good. They can put up point. You're not winning. If they generate thirty five plus turnovers like the dolphins did lash. Okay they have a chance okay they. They've got they've got to get the takeaways. But i mean. I was really really liking the broncos coming in and now i'm just kinda like you're like them with lock and then teddy teddy changes your mind with. This is some gas thanking love this. Here's the thing though they have access. It's not like nagging the bears because they have so much offense of town. That is what i'm banking on that. It's not just the defensive talent. Yes you look you look. It looks like a top five defense and certainly top-five defensive play collar. But i think if you just go weapons go running back. Wide receiver tight ends. That might be top five two so surrounding a mid level quarterback with a lot of good pieces. So if you put in twenty fifteen accident if you put jerry judy. Colin sutton and melvin gordon on the bears going to the playoffs alberto or no fan deep blue teddy on them to i mean they had trubisky out there twenty nine. So is the ceiling steve to you. And i think what you greg things. But i love him. But he's willing to use the the twenty eighteen bears for the broncos like if they if they get a bunch of turnover luck on defense and they have a perfect season and a lot of ways on defense they can win double digit gains but still doesn't make them a true contender. Because that offense is just gonna kill you gotta score in the nfl. Now i mean look i love. I love the talent. I love what they're developing but the chiefs are gonna hang thirty a game. The chargers are going to hang thirty game in. The raiders are gonna hang thirty again. I believe the chargers. When i see it though joe lombardi on offense running running the place just want to see it. I just wanna see. Anyway offense. And i agree with that and again. I'm not throwing total. I am. I was really high. On the broncos coming up announced kind of these teams in ten or eleven deep. I've never seen it like this. We're one of having trouble finding a spot for the chargers in the playoffs. I'm always a huge fan. Having trouble finding steelers browns that can can two or three teams. Really get out of that division. When it's that deep like it is. I've never seen the afc this deep so that part of it is true. And you've got you've gotta get twenty four game and i just don't see that with the bronx transition to another team. I mean you're not getting that song now. But yeah he's steve. You have no idea how this just quarterback situation means arguing. I love it because if it's like if he won't listen to mark and i try to ramp down expectations. Maybe the northstar. Nfl media alley snacks from senator. Tito tito landreau pulled off the bench. Put on any position right. I want to get this on tapes. Everybody knows you're not dunking on me on twitter. I i am very down on the jets as having a season of true progress this year. And it seems like. I'm all over the map. But there's the optimum optimistic van me that just hopes for the best but this was a really bad month for the jets..

"A whole bunch of mondo had to. They added a whole new protocol in terms of how they handle practice stretching rest before and after how they handle the preseason and some of this obviously goes back to luck. But i appreciate. And i'm sure chargers fans appreciate that. This new coaching staff than just say well. the football. god's got the chargers again last year and they actually made an effort here. And i just think the spoon of good health which could blow up in the second quarter by week one. Of course we know that but they're locked and loaded with arguably the most exciting young roster and football and and their offensive line missions off line. I mean that was that was an issue and they look strong up front right now. That's that's a dangerous football team. Blog has been in and out. That's one of those votes. They didn't play at all in the preseason. You're right on paper. It looks good. That's a that's a week one test and you're not gonna learn. I think one is almost like extended preseason at this point especially for school rams and chargers full. You know it's hard to evaluate too much on paper. Though you're right like joey bosa to me is is such an important part of that team that needs to be healthy throughout but if you kind of look at the rest of their defense. They're little thin next to him but the linebacker group like they're excited about the linebackers that they have. Because you're white. Kenneth murray like drew tranquil. Like that is a sneaky. Good young group the add asante samuel and a lotta people noticed. I mean we're going deep here on on the charges. We haven't talked about them that they they cut tyrant johnson who made a lot of good plays with herbert last year. And wow like people were really surprised that that told me like. They like their receivers if he couldn't make that team. That tells me okay like i feel almost a little better about the chargers receivers if he couldn't make that team that's a prize me but it shows that like they like the depth that they have at receiver which we did not a lot of big names behind the starters but could be guys especially josh palmer the rookie that make a lot of big place. One fly in the ointment. Because i think it's fair to throat with all the all the good vibes. There is a general feeling like wow. They got rid of anthony lynn. And they're gonna solve their game management issues. They were thirty second and expected points added on special teams last year for instance and we know all the clock. Gaffes down the stretch But this is good for mike sando at the athletic they did a ranking of afc teams and they rank the chargers number six and like vote but one voter said that remained remains to be seen if they will improve game management wise their head coach and three coordinators have a combined three seasons of coordinating experience. Wade phillips had more in like nine thousand nine hundred five so the game management stuff is not locked. That's that's fair some just going to sprinkle in a little bit. Beware chargers fans emma's selfish especially because that was not a last year anomaly that goes back decades with the chargers. Yeah plus i think daniel jeremiah. Still there radio guy. So that's that's okay. I mean you want to get money a huge extension f- you want to see what else you need that money in the wife We were talking about whether to listen to podcasts. At one point five speed or not the. Move the sticks podcasts. That's the one you can listen to one and a half to celery to finish. Just bang bang through. I loved because andrew sicilian brought it up on air to weiss in waste just the most classic way she answer was like. I'm not looking to speed things up at this point in my life. I'm looking to slow things down. And i was just like a pre tree where.

"George tryon showing inca changed his name so everyone get on that. There's there's a dash in there okay. Fin it's trion showing like we didn't know anything about this kid and he made as big an impact. I think as any defensive rookie in the entire nfl and sometimes that's what the precedes all about. Is just you see a player. And you know like oh. This guy is not only going to be equality. Quality third edge rusher alongside shack and j. b. I mean he might be better than them he might. He might be as good as them right now. They were a little quiet in the regular season last year and then really turned it on down the stretch. I just mean. He looks like he's going to show up and play and they made it through a healthy a month just sort of liked what i saw and heard out of their skill position group. I think antonio brown is healthier and totally ready for this season. And then chris godwin. Who mike evans. Who had some injury troubles last year. God when he drops in the playoffs to like if you watch them in their little preseason action hurt all the practice words like they are ready to roll sometimes. The super bowl champion starts out like just a couple of feet ahead of the rest of the league and there's no. There was no reason to doubt the bucks going into camp. I actually feel even better about them now after everything. I've seen like everyone's healthy. I think they're ready to roll. I think they're motivated. I actually think. September is the is the wrong time to play the box. You might have a better chance against them in november and december. Then you do to start season. They're going to start. I think ahead of the rest of the league. Todd bowles need another toy to play with. I mean this guy ran now. He's i mean he's going to be drawn stuff up. You know like who knows what but guess. I look at tennessee titans. We'll talk about very much. You know you know. I got to saw him plan appreciation. Game they've got excellent depth. The backup quarterback. I believe is woodside. And i think he's like an a. f. guy he supplanted matt barkley as the backup to ryan tanna nice player. They've got depth all over the place. The offensive backfield but look at the rest of the division and that looks pretty much a catastrophe right. I think we all. We all really liked the colts coming in. But now they've got injuries right. You've got the whole vaccinated unvaccinated situation carson wentz. You know finally returned smack this. There's the espn he's back. He's back at practice but he's missing time. You had the foot injury. And he's missing some time because that issue because the close contact issues right so we'll see i think they're going to get back because their defense is really good. I'm a big area liner fan. But then you've got the tech until five years away from being five years away so that's a decade before giving an opportunity. And then the jags. You know like look of urban meyer to for sitting here. Stanley vaccination status Played into our cuts opening up an investigation. He's just saying out loud with the other. Thirty one aren't better. believe it. so but look besides that they're still. They're still deficient a lot of ways. See whichever lawrence and come up with. But if he doesn't get killed this could be joey. Borough situation hopefully stays healthy but in terms of protecting him. That's an issue so the titans i mean. I think they've got a pretty good rauscher worried about some of the losses. They suffered coming into training camp. I think they're rock solid and division. Wise i i think they are clearly front runners right. But do you are you into. Of course they lost arthur smith. Here are you into the titans as having a good summer by default just because you didn't like any of the other summers in the division. You actually think that there's more this team can be better than what they were. One of their right. Steve in the press and they're going to be more diverse offensively so my conversation with arthur smith. He's like it was nobody's planned. Derrick henry have four hundred touches last year right but they add them injury injury issues at at the backup spot so now they're going to work some things differently. Offensively you're going to see more and necessarily with derrick henry but you're gonna see more passes out of the backfield you're gonna see that offense change with johnny smith gone right so they're going to do some things offensive. They got julio jones there. So i think they're going to be a little bit more creative a little bit tougher to defend. And they're gonna open up the field a little more for derrick henry when he does get his touches which again. I don't think we'll give you more frequent or as frequency had been in the past years. I add them to. I did they. Were one of my team's not just because of the division though that's a big part of it that's the worst vision football but i think they had a lot of positive things. First of jones back at practice. I was a little worried about that. He just doesn't practice anywhere no he. He's ready to rule. I think they found something in their rookie. Boldin mold and rather he's going to be there slot corner like their defense really turned over and that can go well or that can go not so well but i liked the secondary right now. Jack rabbit look officially named jack rabbit. By the way we haven't announced that on the podcast. Love you have to call him. Jack rap i think west was ahead of the curve on that would always just just call them jackrabbit. No matter what christian fulton's starting their like bud. Bud duprey had a healthy preseason. Sometimes it's just about like who gets through healthy and who who like you are a little worried about like when you changed everything where they're going to have an okay month. I just liked everything. I heard from them taylor winds back from his acl. I'm with you steve. I think that feels like a pretty safe playoff team. When i wasn't necessarily thinking that and i also of two minds on this because we just did our predictions podcasts and throughout the colts there as the division winner because i do feel there is a a ceiling here. That is a little higher than they're getting credit for if things click health wise but i had them ultimately on the team. I feel less about after the summer because of the injuries you mentioned and also that schedule we've hit on but the fact that they're gonna have had a disjointed summer with many of their key players and we also should mentioned t y hilton. Who's out indefinitely with this back. Neck thing that schedule the first half of the season home. Seattle rams at tennessee at miami at baltimore a little. Pick me up home. Houston than at san francisco home tennessee. The team. That could have used a a week schedule in the in the front end to get things under control after kind of a A hectic summer but they got the opposite And you had mentioned. Greg helping important know it's it should be obvious but it doesn't always work out that way and i'm going to talk about the chargers team i feel better about Because the chargers and this should not surprise anyone that follows. The team in the sport ranked fourth in waited approximate value loss to injuries last season. According to the injury tracking site man games lost and just the fact that they've gotten out of this summer With all their stars intact and they have such a fun varied roster of plus players. Just in. herbert. Austin heckler keenan allen. Derwin james joey bosa all should be locked and loaded for week one against washington which by the way chargers washington one of my sneaky favourite week one matchups that sounds that is that is good and i want to give credit. It's kind of tricky. How do you coming out of a summer with good health and being locked and loaded for the season brandon. Staley new coach. Give him some credit about anthony. La- mondo the new director of sports performance. They added a whole bunch of mondo had to. They added a whole new protocol in terms of how they handle practice stretching rest before and after.

Obviously teams continued to be very active as they comb through waivers and the open market to finish that fifty. Three man roster. It's funny and it's it's funny to the players at the back end of these rosters but you make that fifty. Three men cut on tuesday. And then it's even worse the next couple of days. You have to hope your team doesn't pick up somebody on waivers and cut you. After the fifty three man cut down that's got to be one of them work cruel aspects of of the sport But with that in the rear view mirror were now going to talk about teams. Feel better about or worse navigator training camp and preseason so that's coming up in just a couple of minutes and also coming up one of our favorites victims afer over at the athletic.

One of my favorite beats to read always has been but now now it's Him and tastes on read. I think at the athletic would both do a great job.

"Jerry talks to me in my sleep sometimes like that you know. What do i do here. You wanna do win total. Yeah i wanna do some over unders on this all right and let's let's maybe just kind of take a cup like you want to take a couple of questions about this. You just throw out some teams. And i'll tell you what the vegas line is and we can talk about how we feel about the number all right. Let's start with my pittsburgh steelers. What's the over under for my pittsburgh. Steelers steelers gotta remember folks. We're gonna remind you all the time now. Seventeen games seventeen games this year. Over under for the pittsburgh steelers eight point five Interesting widow total. So that's even eight five five eight and five in vienna. I mean either. Eight nine or nine and eight feel about the pittsburgh steelers. I don't think they're going to be very good. This year. i despite ben rothlisberger coming back and blasphemy is. His arm is fixed on whatnot. And what have you. I don't think they're going to be very good. I i love. It's been a bad day for me. Guys my cubs are fire sale Steelers for the first time ever under mike tomlin would be if this happens under five hundred five hundred man first time for everything. I guess. I'm i'm gonna go with you on this one too. I think the under on this deal. Because i just i don't think they addressed the needs. They needed to address in the off season in particular at the draft. Pick and i love najji harris right. I love nauseous. I love him. I love my love. My just just i think they needed to address the offense line more acutely before that. Now if najah harris goes on and jose fifteen year career in in pittsburgh and they don't win any titles. I'll also i'll continue. Say it i'll say it was a bad pick fair same thing in new york you've saquon barkley and that giant seemed note doesn't win over the next decade. I'm to be like you should have drafted quarterback there at number two not running back that had big thighs for eight years. You know a big all right. Let's go to let's go. Let's go to la la land. Let's look at both the chargers. And the rams i rams i their number is ten point five. Tj when you think about ten point five win for the rams put them what ten insert or eleven six ten eleven six. i'd like to round up Eleven six ten and seven. That seems about right like you know we had this talk the other day rheinland inyo for like a few months. We were going on and kind of arguing about how we felt. Each team was going to fare this year. And it just me. Those guys didn't even step on the same fill with one another until this week. So i i wait and see how these teams were actually practicing together before. I really wanted to jump in and be like oh. I think they're going to win. Eleven games. I haven't even seen them on the and also and practices really. Don't aren't gonna do that much for either. I mean you got preseason games. Maybe i mean it's gonna be weak one. It's gonna be weak one even october before. I heard a great quote from a coach. The other day when i was hosting pac twelve media days he said these preseason numbers and polls are written on toilet paper. Yeah the mixed low sense does make a lotta wiping our ass with here week now. All right all right. La chargers la chargers nine and a half. Now let's do this. Tj you wanna play the game. We whether it's over under how about we put the rams against the chargers who finishes with more wins rams or chargers who that's an interesting one. The camakers thing though bro that huge. That's a huge adrian. Peterson designing isn't isn't a big enough deal for you. Think did they signed anything peers. That's what i thought right. Oh i think he was just a rumor. Okay i just. But i mean look yet sign of now. Leafs leaf endorses. It means anything for anybody out there. All right he know. The chargers seem like they're always going to charge right. They're either going to start the year off really strong and fade or change my friend and an end superstrong but not you know they me. There was a leaf curse. Maybe the fact that i was you know you know pushed out of there because my behavior and the fact that they didn't allow me back and now they're gonna let me back. What if i was like the goat. I was about to say like the bad got. What if i was the bad goat for a long. I'm the pick the rams okay To have more wins than the chargers issue Both play in relatively. I think i was gonna say relatively competitive divisions but the nfc west is much more competitive than i think in the afc west believe so And that for me allows the chargers in just in herbert and if they stay healthy with james in this defense i think the chargers Get over the top. I think that nine and a half. I'm Here's here's a beautiful Dime from said quarterback if we want to lose our minds about something talking about how this should minded dad. That is a legitimately thrown ball. They're not just like a roll out with dudes he's like pads holding on to actually diving cat. That's an actual diving catch. I can't tell who caught the ball not brooklyn. You should take your sound from the tibo avenue because you're azam for that play should be. I saw some video earlier to of justin herbert signing some autographs for fans. The hairs back wondering long hair is back. He looks like in winter. Twenty three years old. Your hair grows quickly. that's true. No mine stop. If i if i if i chose right now at this point To just let my hair grow. It's it's going to be lush heavy here in a month. Yeah i haven't cut my hair free twenty one years. I cut my hair this morning. But you know what you know. It's you know it's it's takes less time for him to get ready and stuff like that. I get it took me. It took me twenty seconds to do this. You know he doesn't have to worry about that. It looks good on the product in your hair so it does. I didn't put much at all in. Maybe it's natural and it looks great. I'm just naturally Only lead haired guy. I guess team. So i went with the over with the chargers. I want the under with the steelers. I'm gonna go with the under with the rams all right. Let's do the green bay. Packers who agreement packets ten on the nose. Ten and seven for the packers going over with that that. That's you're telling me the rams have. Wow i have predicted. Yeah you're predicting the rims when nine games in. Yeah i think they go nine and eight. Okay i do not have the same Opt optimism as a ton of people. Do around this. Matthew stafford trait. I think sean mcvay went all in. They don't got any picks. I think the defense had lost players that they needed to. I think it's gonna be difficult in that. Division is tough. And i think the arizona cardinals make the next step in that division. Get over the top of the rams which doesn't allow you're gonna have three teams. It probably could be from the division but it was have to be from a nine eight. La rams team in the wildcard so ooh and breaking news tj. Good for you. The mets are finalizing a trade to acquire hobby by what i said that right before we went to break there goes another jersey. Sorry ryan leaf. I'm not one to burnham. And i will take them to goodwill right. I will let somebody else aware them. Just take the names off the back to clean out the clock.

Tell me you saw the tibo video. I did not tell me what my god. Trevor olympic set so situation. They're working on. They're working on some red zone. Trevor warrants under immense pressure from his defensive line rolls to his left. Those back across his body hits tibo in the back of the end zone.

You know like we started out a quarantine window a hotel for ten days writing boston skyline for ten straight days. I do think about what what we can do.

I will All let's my god two days of speech and let's get together. Let's get together. I'm going to be out there Thursday through sunday so Let's say you're so you're saying goodbye to me now. The phone is that bad right now. No actually sounds great right before you go rich. Did you catch any of the nba draft the russell westbrook trade. O- how about russell westbrook and max scherzer showing up in los angeles. Heydrich turn around the same night. All that is unbelievable. I i don't know what to make of it like you know it would be an amazing story. The ucla zone comes back to the lakers and creates a big three. But why the thing. I don't understand is i. i love to spin. I love the spin machine. Though the wizards trade him away because they need to clear space to build around beal. But wouldn't you build around bill with russell westbrook. I mean what cyrus thank you know and like if you're gonna build a team everybody needs to superstars and obviously the lakers figure like the old ocean's eleven line i need one more. Let's get one more like they got one more and so when you know everybody gets if you got two you want three. And that's and so. Why would the wizards cough one up. Unless i don't know like watch up with russell westbrook that he's now bouncing around like a journeyman after eleven years at oklahoma city like three years in a row. He's been traded team right. I mean you're you're with me here on rich in. Chris and i are are similar. Thought a. I don't necessarily know what this does for the lakers. Either so it kind of kind of dumbfounded by both organizations and what their willingness to to get rid of one and to add piece i look looked kouzmin. Cruise been overall. A gust of wind just came by and knocked over to umbrellas and nearly gourd A poor old man. That did not happen. I that did not happen. I've got the weather here. In by the way did stop traffic In greenwich connecticut of traffic and weather together on. What the fives. You're doing. You're going back in the way you do. Sportscenter highlights radio. What are we talking about before. I knew we were talking about russell. Westbrook russell westbrook. But here's the deal like you know that kouzmin has been the guy that that that's that's been kind of like the last man standing for lebron to to have on the team and he was the guy that survived that whole purge with new orleans and now know last year when the bubble he was the guy that did it all and this past year you know was clearly his last. But if who's my how. Casey p for russell westbrook i mean come on. That's a no brainer. Like that's of course. You can do that so i think it's what happens you know. Of course you're going to do that. I'm just wondering why the wizards would say that. We're building around our star bradley beal. So we're gonna trade like one of the greatest triple double players in the history of the nba. 'cause we don't wanna build around our guy with him like it just seems to me that there's something up with ross again But he's coming back to la and.

"You know last year the injuries and everything else and covert. He kinda got a flyer for his hot and cold performances. so i would say him. Daniel jones I think it's i think it's matthew stafford. I think th how big that trade was. How much that You know mcveigh is is is putting into that. You know that bucket. I think there's a lot of a lot of pressure there for matthew stafford because i've talked to a few people that don't necessarily think this changes the la the la. Rams and and i had to take a hard look at it. matthew stafford's gonna to be exceptional. I'd i do believe and look for as much as here. Golf was a turnover machine last year. But historically matthew stafford he gives that thing up now. he's a he's a thirteen fourteen. Pick guy a year or two. But you know he'll push it downfield. He'll take chances. And that's that's with sean. Mcvay wants office evolved into losing. Camakers is a blow. But that's that's a nice. That's a nice call. I didn't not think of that staffer. That's a nice call. Well done thank you. Yeah i just. I i was a big fan of jared goff and i and i like the way. He came back in and played hurt and those playoff games and they were. You know a a smug look from aaron rodgers. Knowing he had a defense he had A touchdown there from from making that a game in divisional playoff game so You know. I don't know what it's gonna look like in detroit for for jared but there's i do believe there's a lot of pressure on matthew stafford and in sean mcvay in that team moving forward. We are speaking with steve. Why steve. thanks for taking time with us today. enjoy the at l. Hopefully i'll see you soon. You're gonna be in canton. I will be forward to senior man.

We'll probably talk about that a lot in the next month through matthew stafford carson wentz to a- aaron rodgers on there. I think i agree. That pressure on. There's a lot of pressure on rod. He's been to back to back. Nfc championships hasn't played well in either game. Hasn't played incredibly well in either game. You know this is a year where he put himself behind the eight ball with how he chose to deal with a situation in and he's going to have to come out and guess what play at an mvp level that's what it's gonna have to be formed. Those are the expectations are going to be or people are gonna look at him like you know we'll see we're gonna talk to rich eisen. Who hosts show from time to time. about all of these things as well Some of the stuff. He's doing their With the olympics. When we come back it will be with us here on the rich eisen.

"You know they've got they've got a ways to go. I mean this roster still you know they're safeties or eric harrison at drought harming. These guys. you know probably year to year. So they've they've got a bunch of year to year vet At a lot of positions to help out some of the young players their offensive line is completely influx They've got two positions on the left tackle and right guard. They're locked down the other three positions up for grabs without julio jones. You've got calvin. Who's russell gauge a pretty nice player. And then you've got like ten guys fighting for three or four other wide receiver spots same running back and that's just the offense you know for most of what i just said so. Got a lot of holes to fill. They've got to figure out ways again to be competitive but to also get some of these young players ready. How pits looks like the real deal How does he in them in pads and practice. But you know when you see what has just like. That's a special talent so you got what you went four but you know this is a team you just don't know they could be really bad. They could middle of the pack or they could get some amendments on point and went to ball games because they have their quarterback. We're talking with steve wash. Nfl network reporter co host of the huddle and flow podcast Everybody witnessed The entire season of the green bay nonsense and what ultimately took place. We heard from aaron rodgers for the first time publicly About everything for about. How long was it brought about. Thirty eight minutes was the was the thirty two minute. Thirty two minutes was this press conference where it was incredibly well titillated. I think needed to be An relatively transparent for everybody to see even even the organization that he is going to be playing for this year. What did you what was your takeaway from from. Aaron rodgers comments in how this will uh this season we'll will come for wishing for for not only him but the green bay packers as well. Well look i mean. I think you're going to take a shot and they're going to be good. I mean yeah. They're they're all their offense going to be good. I'm interested to see defensively if they're going to be as good because even though we saw what happened in the playoff game you get to tampa bay. That was still a pretty good defense. You know. I think they were top ten in most major categories and now they've got joe berry. Who was the rams linebackers coach now taking over the defence so We'll see but when you go back to go back to the press conference. I think this is it. You know this is the last year for him to spill tea. Like that to basically look if you're gonna draft my successor in. You're you're gonna do not do certain things like contract well. Let's go ahead accelerate this process so it sounds like he wants to give it a shot because all you've heard all along is that he loves his coaches. He loves his teammates do with management. And you know. I think he really spelled that out in that news conference so i think they're going to go out there. You're going gonna give it his best shot this year and then you can say go ahead and trade me. They're gonna probably be working on a trade you know to get to wherever and then you know. It's it's the jordan la vera so you know and then but the interesting thing is you know devante. I'm just talking about. Hey i'm not giving you own discount. you know. So he may want to be out unless they franchise him other guys maybe out so you know they they really better start having a plan for the transition not just a quarterback but how they're gonna handle their free agents and how they're going to get other players in there to replace him 'cause like and said a lot of folks flocking to green bay to come to green bay they were. They were combinator. Try to play with him. They need they would have shot to win the super bowl. We're talking with steve. nfl network. Reporter i want to get your response to the the breaking news today That's tim tebow catching a touchdown in jacksonville from a first-round trevor lawrence by the way No we're excited about that over here on the rich eisen show carson wentz right the off season transaction from philadelphia all hoopla their former. Mvp candidate Back with frank reich. Look the part in practice the last few days and then we get news from adam schefter today around the foot injury another in-n-out now this you know. Further injury early in camp would necessarily bring a lot of news but it's carson wentz who has been shall we say injury prone throughout his career Your take away from this news In the impact on this indianapolis colts team in that south division. Well i you know this is where this point a training camp here like okay. Maybe it's a two or three days thing right. You're waiting to see all of a sudden they come out and they say like oh boy i mean this is a two or three month thing. I man You know we'd better get some help. And we know one place. They're not going to get a quarterback is to sean watch because houston not trade him inside the division. But you know they're they're counting look he. He is seen as the final piece. Even though they're not going to ask him to put up the same types of numbers they know. he's got the potential as philip rivers did last year. He's got the potential to open up their offense a little bit and to do some things. All you're hearing is this team is super bowl. Ready carson wentz stays healthy. Doesn't turn the ball over. They're going to be to win it well so far. He's not healthy right now so they just have to hope that it's it's again it's a minor thing. It's a day. Two days. Three days and that is not chronic. Because i do think if he's healthy from what we saw a couple years ago he gets his head back on right He could be a fantastic player and and he's in the right type of environment. They got a rate culture in indianapolis. So i'm pulling for him You know again but the but the durability things absolutely legitimate concern it is and it's incredibly disappointing I expect for carson as well as indianapolis colts organization. Because they were looking for some big things. Hopefully it's a quick thing that could come back foot. Injuries are always difficult to diagnose in comprehend on how long that will be steve one more thing on carson. I is he. The quarterback is under the most pressure this year. He's one of them. I mean you know to You gotta look at too because you know if if he doesn't get done huge expectations on that team.

"Week. Post mates will deliver here right. Yeah all right. I like because i really would like to back. I'd really like to hang here and talk about everything that's going on in sports right now. Next week's going to be so much fun. Football's going to be ramped up leading into the first preseason game in over two years for the hall of fame game. i'm gonna go to the canton. Maybe i can be the onsite reporter for the rich eisen show and canton. How about that one. That sounds like a move right there. Back yeah we can do it Our next guest Is locked in with the. Nfl has been all the time. He's the reporter for the nfl network as well as the host of the huddle and flow podcast with my old friend. Jim trotter. let's welcome to the show. Mr steve steve you doing buddy. I'm doing good. Hey ryan if you bought. Jv move from being riches reporter now that would be a goat move. I think so steve fan of the show. Yeah absolutely absolutely. I guys doing do a good man thanks for. Thanks for spending some time with us today. Where are you at right now. You on a are you on a tour of the of the camps right now. I'm in atlanta. I was in houston earlier. This week for Like that was interesting to say the least shot. How's this look at safety. You know it. Can i clarify that real quick. You're making a big deal of this and ryan you know this. You know when teams are doing like special team work and you've got like eighty percent of the team. A special team drills writes a quarterback and other people go through a group and they'll do like blitz recognition or coverage recognition or rpo kind of backside linebacker recognition and the three other quarterbacks. Who aren't going through. That will dress up. They'll put those little skullcaps on their on their helmets along with like the long snappers and all that and they'll go through those recognition drills. I've seen aaron rodgers. I've seen other quarterbacks do it so people saying shawn watson playing safety that's would that is. It is as common as something. I've seen for the past ten twelve years carbon year deal. No it definitely is. But it's in this day and age. Steve where you you post anything without any context people are going to make what they wanna make from. And it's just the world we live in an it is the there's chaos in houston. Don't get us wrong. there's chaos. There's a new coach their exodus in talent from every which direction their franchise quarterback doesn't want to be there. He's got twenty two assault allegations hanging over the top of them Civilly there's a. There's a criminal investigation going on the. Nfl has yet to act on anything. I mean they said they're actively looking to trade him yet. I don't know what team that would be willing to do something like that. So as you walked out of there there had to be like a breath of fresh air when you walked into atlanta and saw where they were trying to go moving forward. It's real weird jersey houston situation. I mean i. There are teams that apparently are engaging them at trade talks. Just probably you know. Look they're probably trying to protect themselves like if we trade for him and we're going to give up this type of compensation we've got to have some conditions attached in case. He is eventually suspended or something like that and you know maybe they said this isn't enough yet but it's so weird because there is a feeling talking to some folks but if he's going to practice let him play right should they're putting themselves in an odd box by letting in practice they should have just said. Why don't you stay away. Stay in shape. But why didn't you stay away until we figure some things out but now by letting him be seen out there on the practice field letting them take reps. You know individually and throwing the ball better than any other quarterbacks. I'm sure at some point. The are gonna like okay. What are we gonna do like. Why is this taking up. So everybody else if he's not going to be here and if you if he's taking these reps didn't want we plan it so it's it's a weird dynamic got. They've set themselves up with the nfl. Hasn't made a decision and they've they're letting it go if i'm the houston texans. I'm saying i don't. I don't care what you what you want your you give us the best chance to win. And you're not going to harm yourself by playing poorly you know you're gonna go out and play to the best of your ability. Because that's what does shawn watson is and that's only going to prop up his trade value. If and when all of this is dismissed or goes away or is adjudicated in in suspension or punishment is handed down. So it's it's incredibly interesting. Let's let's move on now to where you are right now in the atlanta falcons. Because i i find this to be a very interesting organization. They chose to move on from. Julio jones And try to to help their cap number a little bit and do some different things on defense. Because that's where they're going to have to improve kyle. Pits was the draft pick taken early. They stuck with matt ryan. What are you seeing from this organization so far early in camp. It's a it's a weird. It's weird right because you know. Arthur smith new head coach. You comes over from tennessee. And the terrify those new. Gm comes over from the saints. And you know. And i and i spoke to both kind of about what what is. What is the plan right in. The plan is to try to build a competitive roster to win games as they can with matt ryan because they still believe he's playing it i level But they wanna have everything in place so when they eventually do make the transition which you know is coming in a year or two. That new quarterback is insulated..
