"taylor heinicke" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"To get the job. The superstar coach couldn't make the tournament joy with the news on the news. This is the headline news. Sponsored by mercedes spats the best or nothing more pro dates off. It's your favorite. Justin feels was very impressive at his pro day yesterday. Very daniel jeremiah. Thought he showed everything you'd want to see. Within a pro day workouts. He said of the environment was set up for field. Suk sally knocked it out of the park. He's also to hold another pro day in april and forty niners coach kyle. Shanahan is expected to attend that one. He also ran a four four four in the forty yard dash when he takes his shirt off. You look like your typical. No he's He's definitely athletic. And i i think it's kind of you know it's with nick set earlier like it's weird. How once the seasons all of the evaluation start changing. And i think it's because we have this period in time between the season ending and the draft where we're constantly asking for evaluations and it just gets kind of boring to give you the same valuation every single time and you want to add information's to your scout and i do think that the pro day matters a little bit. It is a spotlight situation. All eyes are on. You know you're not going up against defenders but there's you know hundreds of people in the building. There's scouts coaches. There's people that you looked up to your entire lights. There is a little bit of pressure involved in a pro day. Also you want to be impressive. Because if you don't know you're pro day which is you know the the floor. Then you're really in trouble so you could have a great season or have an okay season. If you don't have a good day that could be bad for you. You said yesterday. Because i know you don't put too much into pro days but i think it's happening with fields is he's just the product of over analysts. I think people want to give a little bit extra samak jones. They want to try and find something to add to it. I think it's actually surprising. Zack wilson above justin feels. It was trevor lawrence and justin fields. For how many years now. Sudden zach is trump. Doesn't feel maybe the jets feel like zack. Wilson is a better fit for them. Who knows and obviously we don't know that. The judge taking zack wilson. But i think it's just going to san francisco and if does end up going there that he's going to have a great opportunity for success. So washington signed ryan fitzpatrick. It was assumed he would be the starting quarterback next season. But taylor heineke isn't setting settling for the backup spot. This looking forward to competing with. Its patrick he said it's going to be a fun battle. We're going to hopefully help each other. I'm looking forward to picking his brain getting better as a quarterback in that way and whatever unfolds unfolds but again. I'm excited for the addition. I'm excited for this offense that we've put together don't get it. Don't really understand it. The mystery team in league do not get waiting. This is what i think is i think washington is doing because they're non-imposition to take one of these top quarterbacks and they don't have a quarterback i know that there's washington fans who raged that we keep talking about ryan fitzpatrick this way ryan fitzpatrick team. Seventeen years back up quarterback great one eight one but he is a backup quarterback. That's not an insult it's reality. It's reality they backup quarterback who's foreign three as the standard very funny when washington was really a great franchise fifteen twenty years ago if you to try to peddle them a quarterback who after thighs men that had been nine teams for seventeen years. They would have been outraged faced. They've been so bad at quarterback. Now they're trying to validate a quarterback who's been on nine teams in seventeen years. Washington standards have fallen that. Your anger is on your stanford's you could never have post sunny jorgensen or post. Joe theismann pushed ryan fitzpatrick on your fan. Base would be like. Are you out of your mind when people standards lower now there when you're angry there's a reason for it. It's not us at you. You're mad at the franchise. Your standards of dropped. So you're just angry that we're telling you the truth. Which is ryan's like one of those top. Three backups in the league. That's what he is. Well you just. You're not gonna go into season as the starter and expect anyone around lead to be taking this seriously or even within your own division. Like dacca's back daniel jones and going to improve and they put a ton pieces around completely invested in giving him that he needs to be successful. I don't know what's going to happen in billy but at least they're investing jalen hurts like this. This doesn't make sense to me. So what i think is the only scenario that like is gonna make sense we know what's gonna sam darnold so the jets obviously want more than the third round or you know. We're hearing martin wait third-round and fourth round conditional just going to wait till the draft. Is this really the jets. Have all the power in that situation. We know they're going to take a quarterback so they can wait all the way up into the draft and then washington has no moves to make and then they end up giving them a little bit more for sam darnold which i don't think a second round pick is regis for sam darnold. Paul don't have a quarterback so what's happening so you were just talking about ucla. Cinderella run in the ncaa tournament continue night as they knocked off. One seed michigan fifty. One forty nine and eight great game. Michigan had a great shot. Michigan just couldn't last three minutes michigan. Couldn't a shot at a chance. Maybe it was michigan game. Couldn't hit a shot was they joined. Vcu from two thousand eleven as the only two teams to advance from the first four to the final fours. Eleven seated bruins will now face number one overall gonzaga on saturday. The zags peasley took down succeed. Usc eighty five. Sixty six to win and advanced Usc gonzaga was not a very competitive game. But this one was great. Ucla's now when they were twenty two and nine this season they did lose their last four games before entering tournament including corner final loss the pac twelve tournament to oregon state. So this is a really. I've loved the run has been a great tournament is we have. We didn't have duke in Kentucky and louisville. But i mean i'm a west coast guy so a lot of pac twelve a lot of gonzaga. Listen i before the tournament started. I think we said this on the air gonzaga and baylor looked like the two best teams michigan would have been but they lost their best player. So it's kind of ending up. Gonzaga's gonna i i just don't think. Ucla has the firepower to stay with them anymore. I i mean. I i was with you i thought. Usc was gonna be a little bit closer than that. But saag is just incredible. Offensively the other match up to the final four for the men as baylor and houston sit. South carolina beat texas six to thirty four and sanford louisville. Seventy eight sixty three in the women's tournaments. The women's final four is south carolina stanford arizona arizona yukon. So any of those matchups in the national of game are going to be incredible but we have great final. Four is setting in great stuff joy with the news.

"About the New York Giants coming up. All right, we are back but we're doing very very well. Let's talk about Washington the Washington football team had maybe the craziest year of football. I can imagine a team having it was a long roller coaster here is a couple of things just factual statements that really actually happened during the 2020 season for the Washington football team. First of all, they had no team name right off name their coach had cancer their former first-round quarterback, Dwayne Haskins got a first-round pick less than two years after being a first-round pick made bad decisions on and off the field. He got benched and then he got cut but never happens. I can't imagine her time. We're less than two years after drafting a quarterback least not recently. The guy was out washing even had a losing record. They were seven and nine. And yet still this team made the playoffs. It's simply it's crazy to me. And the message here is that they hired the right Coach Ron Rivera. I I love Ron I believed in Ron here is even crazier Alex Smith who was their third string starting quarterback to start the year that guy went on to win the comeback player of the year in the NFL. And then in the playoffs a different quarterback a fourth quarterback, not Alex Smith. Not Dwayne Haskins not Kyla know a guy named Taylor heinicke. He came in had a crazy game in the playoffs against Tampa Bay made Tom Brady made Tampa sweat. They were nervous. In fact, it's kind of crazy Taylor henneke did better in the playoffs against Tampa. Then Drew Brees then Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes better than all three of those guys in their former Super Bowl MVP winning quarterbacks. So the year did not go the way I expected for Washington not even in the slightest. In fact going going into your going into twenty-twenty. I totally wrote them office and this team is not go to and for no wet Washington that there's too much going on and it makes sense Alex Smith coming off injury coach has cancer no team name quarterback Haskins who's been all over the place on film and off the field. And I even this I was actually expecting the mostly watch Dwayne Haskins. I literally said my prediction video the three people I'm excited to watch are all from Ohio State Terry McLaurin Chase young and talk to Wayne Haskins Duane's not on the team and I what I got in Washington when I watched them play football. We just kind of good football. I find incredibly hard. They love their head coach of era and even more telling a team that had four starting quarterbacks this year to make the playoffs to give the Super Bowl winning team a run for their money in the playoffs. That's a sign of a well-coached football team. Kyle Allan Taylor, henneke Dwayne Haskins, Alex Smith four starting quarterbacks this year a team that made the playoffs and had despite a crazy Rocky thing. They made the playoffs work. They won their division now got to give a shout out to the rookie defensive end Chase young because he became a huge leader in their locker room. They're very proud of him. They like him off Washington got the right coach. I'm happy for them. They got a draft of the right guy. Number two overall Chase young and it was just a weird wild crazy here, but also a huge step in the right direction for this franchise who Washington's been a mess for a long time. They got The Right leader in place Ron Rivera. They're heading in the right direction. I don't know what they do at quarterback next year..

"Because you kept then we talk about the defense. So we argued about that. I moved out you read and you brought it right back. So go ahead and you you made the point that oh, we'll also look at the offense. They did this differently. I'm pointing you at that. They're not in my opinion wage. And I'm not saying that you're wrong I'm saying in my opinion. This Bucks team has been run based short passes. They take their shut just like Tony Romo was saying in the game play-action game. That's what they did. They stay true to themselves and because they could and this is why I thought the Bucks were going to end up winning this game is cuz they could play different ways. And if you can run the ball successfully and in my opinion for net and Jones, the two-headed monster wage more important than Brady in this game that they were able to do that to keep the a blitzing pressure defense off of balance was was a huge factor in this game. And so, you know, that that's just came down on that. I want to go through quickly that the second and third headlines that I have for this game Brady of court number to Brady of course winds number seven, you know, he wins his fists MVP. I don't think anybody watching this game thought that Tom Brady was Well, I mean it who do you pick you can't pick anybody from the defense? You can't pick Todd Bowles and not anybody had like four sacks in the game. So what are you going to do? But Tom Brady win the MVP grunge a big part in the game, you know, which was great to see and I'm sure great for Patriots fans. And the number three thing, you know the first half officiating it's it was a story-based game. It will probably still be a story. I don't think it was deciding factor in the game. But I do think it certainly factored into the fourth quarter being largely lost. Yeah, I mean I just look at this and I say to myself that we all kind of wondered what Brady was going to do with this team and how he was going to be able to put the pieces together because I do think some of the the late Ron was in the regular season was overstated depending on you know, who they played against their schedule is really soft and final month. And you know, the Washington win was okay. It's against Taylor heinicke. It's against a young defensive line. So I didn't put too much stock into that winning the win against New Orleans. I thought was a defensive based win and and Drew Brees, you know just looked like garbage to me quite frankly and I think he's going to retire this week. I thought really need the game that you looked at was the Green Bay game. And this defense I understand listen that they've been they've been good for the most part this year..

"She came in and started a playoff game for Washington against Tampa Bay and he showed more skill and more preparation in one game than any single performance between had put up in his entire two-year run off with Washington. That's alarming when you have a guy who's a first-round pick Dwayne Haskins & Taylor heinicke guy who was not even a starter in the XFL. You shouldn't have the XFL back up paying way way better than the NFL first round pick and I either it shows. Hi. Nikki is way better than anybody thought or Haskins is not working hard not prepared. I'm very concerned about dog. Asking so and I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer. I really hope that Dwayne Haskins can seize the moment can realize this is an amazing opportunity. I got he's really lucky to go get signed anywhere in the NFL again. I hope it works very very hard. I hope you have a long career and he has great habits and is awesome. Like I'd love to see a success story from Dwayne Haskins. You know what's coming next? So my fear is that Dwayne really loves the attention and the money and the fame and he likes that a lot more than he likes the part of working hard and preparing to be an NFL quarterback weekend and week out if over anytime other than Pittsburgh. Oh, yeah, he's there and he's getting it released after a week of training camp. Here's the thing though about Pittsburgh. The timing is very interesting because it happened before the draft which tells me that well, we already know Big Ben Roethlisberger is going to be the starting quarterback next year in Pittsburgh again in the Steelers then because they had Askins likely are not planning on drafting a quarterback to replace big been in this year's NFL Draft. They're going to double down a Big Bend draft him help kind of the opposite of what the Green Bay Packers did bad drafting Jordan love home way before Aaron Rodgers is done the Steelers like we're going to hang onto the bed until he is a corpse and it's nothing left then worry about replacing him and it's really a one-year try out for Dwayne Haskins and and Pittsburgh really to find out whether or not In Haskins can be the future moving forward or not. I do fear that Pittsburgh is a bad fit for him. Like because it's Pittsburgh. He's probably going to stay on the roster all year because they have anything else. They're going to give them a try out see what can you can do but also Pittsburgh the.

"I mean it depends on what George Paton the new GM thinks of Drew lock the Panthers have an AGM but it's Matt rules team and they are going to be very aggressive for quarterback Nick. So, you know that sort of leads and plus Washington now has a GM and Marty hurney, it's Ron Rivera's basically, but they are going to be in the market for starting quarterback also because they have they've Alex Smith who you can't rely on him his health. They have Kyle down and Tyler heinicke who Taylor heinicke who are both restricted free agents, so they will be back but I don't think any of those things preclude them. I mean Alex Smith, they're going to have to figure out his contract. I don't think that precludes any of wage anybody there from from being the starter that that the that Washington will be out there and looking for a quarterback. So Nick sort of where that leaves us is you talked to basically anybody off. Annabelle there are three draft quarterbacks that are sort of No Doubt top prospects that have separated themselves from the rest of the pack and that's Trevor Lawrence Justin fields, and and and Wilson the kid from BYU BYU. So you have those three kids those three guys. And then you look at okay and I did this in my column the other day just to sort of reset for people where we are and I have I have six teams that are major players for starters and let's see if you agree with these Nick. All right, we know the Jaguars need one. Wish hey, at least that'll make you should make Gardner Minshew available, which I would be I would be happy with that. If I were the Patriots or at least thought I would be happy with adding him as part of the solution or taking a look at it the Panthers who had the 8th overall pick, they will be extremely aggressive quarterback. I've been hearing that four months. They have the 8th overall pick. They have a basically a full complement of pics available. They have the 8th in a second third fourth have you that would possibly make Teddy Bridgewater available and maybe will Grier neither of which I'm extremely excited about if I'm the Patriots you're the Patriots. 18th.

"Well, did you see how the Patriots finished last year with Tom Brady at quarterback? They were four and five wage. They were I think two and five down the street really down the stretch with games that mattered including the Dolphins game like the Patriots were losing team at the end of last year. There are losing teen now off Brady was there last year. He was not there this year. So I just don't think a lot of the arguments, you know, hold water from from one thing to another but whatever people are going to say, whatever they're going to say home and I just think it's ridiculous. I think some of this Brady stuff You know, we we look at Brady and I think a lot of people give him credit for some things that quite frankly. I don't know if he deserves credit for this year with the Bucs and you know, that's one thing I will say about this and I've been saying this throughout the season Brady against good teams has not been the same versus crap teams in a major reason why and they might go on and they might win the Superbowl. It might be a great story. But certain things had to fall their way just like almost every other Super Bowl run when you're the Bucks you mentioned this Greg they drew a seven and nine Washington team who had their fourth quarterback playing Taylor heinicke and as well as he played that night and has great of a story as he was they played a below 500 team with a 4th string quarterback them first playoff win. Let's not throw a parade. And then now we see them play the Saints and listen the Saints are really good on defense, I think but you saw Drew Brees he's done. His arm is linguine. Nothing left in the tank could not throw a Beyond ten yards. They turn the football over four count em four times which gave Tampa short fields Tampa scored 21 points off of the first three New Orleans Saints turnovers. So yeah, if you are, even an above-average quarterback, you are going to put points up on the board when the opposition is handing the handing you the football and their own territory. That's how football works. So we'll see what happens when they go to Lambeau. We'll see what they do when Aaron Rodgers plays against that defense. I just listen it's it's a great moment for Brady to get to the NFC championship game and I give him credit for playing better than I expected him to play at the age of forty-three. There's no denying that but there are circumstances that we have to pay attention to We Can't be disingenuous with this conversation. We have to give the context to context of this team being 11:00 and 5 is also month. Final month of the season when they played a bunch of trash teams. They played Atlanta twice twice. They played in the Lions Brady was sitting at halftime because they came out and blue. So, I mean, let's put context to it. Yes. This team was seven and five but I think they were one and five or something like that during the regular season against winning teams..

"So he's got plenty of chances. There's a reason he has to be able to stick around on those teams and and really actually compete for a starting wage position. He did start a game. I believe for the Panthers a couple of years ago. But like you said, he was out of the League last year and playing in the display to be out of league play in the XFL and was a backup. So this is not a game of future starting NFL quarterback. I thought he played lights out the other night even incompletions. It was like hitting the receivers in the hands stuff like that. But ultimately, I think that was him play dead. Up to his back the best game. He's played in a playoff game kind of when the team needed it. I don't think that's ever going to be a weekly occurrence. And ultimately you just look at the fact that like all of a journeyman. I think that's exactly what he has and there's nothing wrong with that. I just don't think that we're you're signing him any teams going to sign him to a multi-year deal and and his computer being down for first starting quarterback position now and on top of that he had to get through some hoops to even make that start right Alex Smith has to get injured Dwayne Haskins has to go off the rails. I don't even know what's going on with Kyle Allen and Washington, but then that was he's there for string quarterback that got into the game at a necessity more so than anything that he did on the practice field to prove that he deserved to be in the game and honestly John Wolford did more in the short time that he played for the Rams the other night to impress me, then then heinicke would in terms of bringing him in it just feels like that was the absolute best job. Taylor heinicke is ever going to play at the NFL level. Then he is not going to be able to consistently match that or even come close to consistently match that and I don't I do also think the books were caught a little bit by surprise about how mobile can you actually was members area and said that after the game that they were kind of preparing for Alex me that they were sort of expecting somebody be more stationary in the pocket and they weren't expecting him to you know, do his best Ross Wilson impression and run all over the place on them like kind of keep did so you get into a game or a defense is truly game planning for his skill-set understands who he is as a quarterback. I don't think it's going to look anywhere near as pretty as it did and that about does it for this episode? I think that the head a covers a lot of bases there Patriots draft stuff Brad and I are going to continue rolling on that offer a senior bowls right around the corner..

"Would be the right thing for the dealership do You know, I think there's a low percentage but I think it could happen and all the names that you just tossed out there. The only one I think it's worth it is is DeShaun Watson? I don't think we need another agent quarterback. Those guys aren't as old as band but you know, I don't I don't think the Steelers to go after you know a Stafford or uh, Matt Ryan or someone like that. I mean wage you're going to have to give up a heck of a lot for Deshaun Watson. The Steelers don't like tossing number one picks two other teams. So I don't think that's going to be option that happens. I think that the they're going to need a shuttle ride Mason or hopefully do something in the draft. Well, that's pretty much all the options. I have completely exhausted. I think those are the five things dealers can do. I'm with you. I think we're going to ride out Flathead Mason Rudolph for another season. It's going to be really really painful. I don't see how we get to nine wins with him. But I'm going back to you. I know we don't think this is going to happen. But if you had to choose between Matt Ryan and Matt Stafford, who would it be? Well, I Know Who Tommy Texas 27 likes and that's the that's the boy up from the Motor City, but somebody dog 119 @yahoo, you know, I I like I like Matt Ryan more than I like. Or I think Matt Ryan still has some some left in the tank and I think Atlanta is is just a a team that was poorly coached and we're place a good players go to be average. I'm actually with Tommy, Texas on this. I like number nine. I'm not in on his Tannehill take but I am in on Stafford. I like to see him get a chance with actually, you know a competent franchise, but let's let's move it back a little bit. We've gone through the options of what to do with Ben. I can't believe I still can't believe what happened that game I mean just for the first snap of the game what how did that happen I have no idea I mean it was a Head Rush of all head rushes you know at home vs Cleveland and Cleveland wasn't able to practice and they didn't have other coaching staff you have an all pro pro bowl veteran Pouncey I mean it looked like evil Middle School snapping it over you know a quarterback's head I I can't I can't explain that and the way Ben was you know played in that first half life it you know that's just not he looked like instead of Ben Roethlisberger he looked like Billy Kilmer and that's a that's a reference from the from the seventies wage and you can look it up uh no offense Billy but you know he wasn't very good and he was very out of shape looking quarterback and that's what Ben looks like now and I don't think you know his legs and his knees down Thing and it's rebuilt elbow is going to be the value that he's going to command in the next season. If he would have just thrown like one or two pics, maybe there'd be an argument but for and it wasn't like these were tipped balls. I mean right after the snap goes flying over his head. He he throws a like a like a shuffle pass right to a guy a linebacker. There's no excuse for that. It's I can't watch another season that he's so unpredictable been he still does have good games in him. He can have that game right throws for four hundred yards four TDS and no interceptions, but it's just as likely as having four pics at this point. Yeah. Yeah, he's he he's a warrior. He's an all-time Steeler gray and all time. Miami Redskins, right? But you've next year. I don't see how he's going to get through a full season, you know being a statue, you know thirty nine year old girl her back, you know taking some licks and not being able to move around. I don't see the Steelers being above, you know, above 500 or they're in a team next year and if you look for a job On in the in the AFC North with those other quarterbacks, you know, they are they're all averaging about twenty-four twenty-five years old. If you look who's left in a house right now, except for two you have six of eight that are you know, battling for MVP and and Surefire Hall of Famers and you know, Ben is dead but not now not anymore. He was battling for MVP maybe around like week 8 but his campaign went South. What would you give up for Taylor heinicke? What choice of pick? Yeah, I watched him play. I was really really impressed by him. I don't I'm not sure if he was a you know a flash in the pan or what but you know, maybe he's a hard to suck at this point, you know, maybe it's a third-rounder or maybe it's a third and fifth or something like that. I think I think there's it's higher. I think you apply yourself. Yeah. I think he's played himself into like a second-rounder. I think that wage Be able you'd have to give up just slightly more for darnold at this point. Yeah, I'd like to actually like to see Sam darnold in a Steeler uniform. You want to talk about a guy that's got a lot of life left. A lot of play left that's been in a he's been in a dumpster fire over there in you know swamps, New Jersey, so I'll take him. I'll take anybody but Mason Rudolph at this point. All right pops. That's a quick hit. I know you got a you got a dinner to go to where are you right now? I'm actually down in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. I'm on a little Judy and I are a little walkabout and left Pittsburgh end up in in Florida and then back to the burg and about a week and that Smitty dog 119 on Twitter. Correct, or is it just me. Somebody dog? 119. Yeah, that's Twitter is the best place to find you you do fire off some tweets. Yeah, not not a lot of tweets, but there may it's all right boss. Thanks for coming on. All right, right. Thanks a lot and good luck. Go Steelers..

I am here for thee dad's but I think my favorite part of the entire broadcast. I do you ever watch The Big Bang Theory. I probably watch two episodes of my whole life and I just pissed off a bunch of nerds. I know you know, how long is a character on there in his name is Sheldon? Yes. I know Sheldon. Yep. Yep. They have a show called young Sheldon. And so it's based on Sheldon's obviously the big bang theories Life as a child and so every month. They would call a penalty young Sheldon would pop up at the bottom of the screen and give the definition for that particular penalty. And then he would give like his own version. So he like for example, like a false start he would give the definition of a false start and then he would go like when my dad start shoveling food at dinner before my mom says Grace. Oh great song. It's raining. It was witty. It's totally cool because it was like all in the sense of what kids would understand, you know, or thirty nine year old women. Yes or people that don't know much about football. It was I mean, it was great and they brought you don't have to sell me on it. I'm listen. I'm saying NFL Fox NBC get your shit together. We need slime in our broadcast. Yeah, for real, then they had to walk two kids that did the broadcast we have Gabriella green was in the booth with Nate and Noah and then on the sidelines this kid is going to be a star his name was Lex Lumpkin and he so it's a very nice. Start of the broadcast they're talking to him about you know, who he's a fan because you know, I used to suit up for the Colts. I'm a big Colts fan. I used to sit up for the Colts. I'm a former player for the Colts and took like your kid. Well, then they show a picture of him at Halloween like five years ago wearing a Colts their uniform as a Halloween today. Oh my gosh, you mean professionally, but he suited up that's funny. So, those are all my takeaways from the Nickelodeon NFL weekend God. I just watching some of those players slimed was so great. It was great and then the very end when everything was over with before the before June broadcast before the game. Sean Payton was like, yeah. I mean if we win, I'll totally get slimed. Yes at the end of the broadcast. They totally slimed it was awesome in his J's. Mom. I was like, yeah. Yeah, that stuff's never coming out. No, it's not rich. So I think he'll buy some more right? So there was the there was the kid adult dog. Kid version of the NFL and then there was the real adult version of the NFL with Tony Romo. Jim Nantz Oh, I thought you meant with your husband's cuss words now. No, no the same game Tony Romo. I'm Jim Nantz called the Saints Bears game on the regular an adult the adult the adult version and it's a good thing cuz Tony Romo is not fit for Nickelodeon because he kept telling me it's just the tip Jim just the tip. We're like, I loved it. He's a dork whatever for his bachelor party. They all went like go-karting or something corny like he and they went paintballing something corny. They went to like they went to some sort of like a main-event like you're grown ass men. Anyway, whatever. Okay, so just the tip. Thank you Tony Romo. That's the tip that you turn off Washington's backup quarterback Taylor heinicke total baller..

"Out So the the xfl dies on april ten. We're in the middle of a pandemic. So where do you go then. And where are you working out. What are you doing. So i go back to atlanta And i've been working out this trainer for since i was a soft porn highschool Name is earl williams. And as jim has done some years from salani right yes. Yes and I've i've been working out with him for the longest time and again you know he had a great high. School career had great college career. And shoot the nfl. So i was like you know what i'm gonna stick with this guy he's got me this far And then we added another tool joel biden and Who's who's the weight training coach and he's really kind of helped me with all my stability stuff whether it's my shoulders Ankles knees like that and he's got me superstrong and durable obviously not last night but But throughout the years He's done a great job. So i was. I was down there working with them to and so you get called early in december by washington to come up and be on the practice squad right. Yes yeah that was. Mostly i guess. Scott turner related. Because you would know him so well in your previous stops yup yup Again you know. I think he felt comfortable with coming in. 'cause i pretty much knew the playbook already There's not gonna be hiccup. There you know at a time process that for a guy to learn it so You know. I think it worked out well for both of us. A little known fact in your life you spent two weeks. I believe on the new england patriots. Practice squad in two thousand seventeen. Is that right. Yeah three weeks. Actually you re weeks okay. So so tom brady wasn't a total stranger to you right no I just don't think he remembered me much After the game last night Tv cameras showed you sort of tapping brady on the shoulder. And then he had a little conversation with you. What was that like. And what did he say to you. yeah it's you know it's always really cool when you're when you're talking to a you know if you're hall of famer And probably the best quarterback. I've ever played the game It it's a it's a neat experience And he just told me. I played a hell of a game Showed a lot of grit out there and just to keep working and Again you know for that. Come from him. it's pretty neat and not not a lot of people get experience up. It's honestly a little bit like rocky against apollo creed. Yeah we kinda. we kinda said it was. They've they've which goliath this week was kind of similar. I guess the last thing i would ask you is what do you think this means for your future You know hopefully it means that Not kinda prove myself. That you know i i i belong. I belong in this league. And i can play in this league That's what i'm hoping for Again you know gonna keep keep working out. Keep keep grinding and And hopefully hopefully be back here. I really want to be here in washington a lover on. I love scott. Love these guys I'd love to be here but if not unfortunately then. Hopefully i get a shot elsewhere taylor heineke after really you know before we started this. I said you know this.

"That that throw was was surely based on on practice and on those drills so again you know If you asked me to make that throw college. There's no way i could have. Yeah that's so that's really really interesting. I think and it speaks to. You know what happens in the course of football game. You know the team you know without scott turner and without having practiced that play. You know three hundred times. You probably don't complete that last night and we don't have the drama that we had but anyway now certain ten tampa eleven couple of completions in a row five minutes ago and now I need to know exactly the description of the steven sims touchdown pass in the corner. What rethinking what was your read on that play. Yeah so we actually had a little Double move with local thomas. They're putting a lot of too high kinda Cover four corners and we wanted to take advantage of Logan linebacker so we thought we would kind of just went up linebacker. Kinda give them a little shake and then try and get on top. I can give them a high ball. And when i was looking at it that the safety actually went to go double logan so i knew i had a one on one out out there. Outside was stephen and I love the way stephen runs route. He's very violent at the top And he's got some good speed on them. So i knew if. I could just laid out in the back corner of the end zone. He'd get run out there and get it and When we connect a perfectly which is which is really cool because again you know we was very minimal. These guys I thought we did a pretty damn good job last night. So steven sims on that play is he the first guy. You're looking for he's again. He's kind of the second guy Now it's kind of a play where there's a bunch of different reasons based on the different looks that you give them the defense You know if i got covers zero would have gone somewhere else. And i got destroyed press man i would probably have gone somewhere else So again it's one of those things where it's a play that has answers for almost every defense they were going to run in the red zone so That would say. Logan was the i read once. I saw him get doubled immediately. That's when i put my is back to him in that moment you're dropping a ball into what is a it doesn't look like the tightest of windows but there's only one place that you can throw the ball and it can't be more than say a foot off almost in any direction as you look back on that throw which traveled about twenty four yards in the air and then all the way to the other side of the field What do you think of that. Throw speed product of timing Again sorry That's probably the timing and practice If i if i waited a half second later It would have been incomplete or maybe even picked off so that was just trusting my feet And letting the ball go and let letting stephen go get it Again you know especially with the trust factor comes in and just plain to play and play in your on my nose and stick to it on twitter right after that play happened a tweet by patrick mahomes that as of this moment Twelve hours later has one hundred and sixty two thousand. Four hundred eighty eight likes and it says regardless of the outcome. What a great game by heineke kind of cool. Yeah it's really Again it's it's kind of weird saying that guy's younger than me he does. But the dude is you know he's. He's a top top five quarterback and week if not you know the best quarterback in the league and Again for him to be watching and for him to say that It means a lot to me. And it's it's pretty damn cool. It's got to make all of the you know you read your your bio which has been going on in five years. You have been knocking at the door. Pounding at the door wrapping at the door getting sent home. Get into the xfl and not even playing in the xfl. So i have to imagine that part of you is is saying this morning man. I can do this. Yeah uh that that that process has been sometimes discouraging At the same time. I didn't want my last football to be set for the carolina panthers and losing to atlanta. You know i. I couldn't deal with that. I didn't want that to be my last memory of playing ball so about chasing my dreams and again. Xfl great experience to play but I learned a lot there about myself and against get them grinding throughout the off season while taking classes. And and here we are you know. what did you. What did you learn about yourself in In the twenty twenty xfl. I guess it was about season was about five weeks long or whatever it was but what did you learn about yourself. You know. I go back and look at all the three to four years. I was in the league. And kinda you know you kinda you kind of think. That's that's normal. Life is going gonna last for a good bit and then once you're out You're throwing in the real world and it's it's just different you know you don't get the being locker room full of guys You know with those relationships and just going out there and grind with guys. There's nothing like it and there's nothing like playing this game and shoot getting paid for it. you know so when i was sitting back and just listen about looking at my previous years and what what i could have done better to to stay in I just learned a lot. You know you know. I needed to work a little bit harder. I needed to focus a little. Bit more Anything just that one percent. I could do to get back to that. Might have been the one percent that got me out of the league so again you know i just started taking every day like it was my last day plan and You know it's worked out pretty well for me even in the new year. It's hard to start a new routine..

"And then we had a drag coming to replace him and he was covered and And are my last read on that. Was i little gig. Route behind. All those things with logan to cover that well too so You know i figured. I needed to make a play The defense alliance was doing a great job containing me in the pocket and I just kind of wiggled around back there and found the whole and then once i Kinda got through. I saw. I saw that pylon. And i just made a beeline for it and You know. I don't know how i saw. I've seen the video Of the dive. And i i didn't know i i'd also four yard line so that was pretty cool but Again you know that that was. That was one of those things. I just wanted to go. Go get our team. Needed it I think within a huge thought it was going to be a huge spark for a team and again. I'll never forget that when you when you started your dive for the pylon. Did you have a good feeling that you were going to be able to touch the pylon with football. Or how did it feel to you. The impossible dream or real. Well biggest thing was that don't get hit so When those guys are closing in on okay I'm either going to die for this pilot. And get it. And i get hit or i'm gonna land out of balance and you know miss it. So that was my. That was my thought process. Just get as close as i can And when i was in the air. Just i felt like i could reach and get it and sure enough i did. Unfortunately that's when. I hurt my hurt my shoulder but at least it came on on a pretty cool play and not like a sack or something. So you hurt your children the next series you come out Tampa bay drives to get a field goal to go up twenty one sixteen and you come out and from the start you could tell. There was something wrong with you. Your left arm was just sort of hanging like it was like it was just limped like it was useless. And you guys go three and out and you go to the sidelines. And what are you thinking right. Then i knew after the that touchdown run. There was something wrong. i felt something. Click or pop And then when i came to the sideline i took my off and just held it in my left hand and that was you know pretty bad pain so i knew there's something wrong in there and talk to the doctors and so then we went inside They looked at it No give me a little ibuprofen and got back out there. And and got back into it. You know a little padding and a little tape on there to stabilize it so a lot. Better and Unfortunately got back. I just in time to get when offense got the ball. Yeah so there's nine minutes and eleven seconds left you come out there. Are you in a lot pain at that time. Or is it manageable manageable at that point I thought the doctors is a great job of you know taking me pretty good padding under my my shoulder pads and Now i felt. I felt pretty good at that point. Yeah you made a couple of throws on this drive. That i thought i thought the best one was your second and nine at the tampa twenty seven now at the time. You guys are down. Twenty eight sixteen. You have to score a touchdown right here and so you're down. Twenty eight sixteen. It's second and nine at the tampa twenty seven and mclaren runs. What look from the right side looks to be sort of a deep In cut. And you've got i think levante david in front of them and to db's behind him and yet you shows mclaren throw the ball to take me into that play. Yeah so part of read He's he's he was my first reason. I play deep cut and And i felt like there was a big hole there you know they're obviously. There was a linebacker right there in front. Db's in the back. But scott turner always does a good job you know through training camp and enduring practices. He get to net out. And that's why we practice throws Because those guys are open in the nfl. If you know you don't really get many many open shots like that so we have to take advantage of them so You know where the drill came in and again. That's just a product of a scott. Coaching really well and You know just six executing once. Ask tom brady about a surly made in the super bowl against atlanta where he threw this ball. Chris hogan is just a new free agent that particular year This in overtime against atlanta and it was classic back shoulder. Throw that Chris hogan turned around for the db just kept going and it and it looked so easy. And i said you make it look so easy. How how do that. he said. A hundred and twenty two practices And strike. When i saw that play i said you know. It's impossible if they just got you into camp last week that you could have made that play. Yeah well again. I've i've done with scott for three to four years in the past. You know right. He's been doing these drills for for the longest time and even when i wasn't on a team this year when i was training at home I would practice those those just in case you know i got. I got another shot and again you know. That's just you know that's how this kind of business works. Sometimes you know you kind of get in and out and you just keep grinding trying to try and get back in.

Who had one of the most interesting quarterback duels in nfl history. And that. was tom brady vs taylor. Heineke in the nfc. Wildcard game. saturday night. And taylor i just wanted to know. Is we'd park now on sunday late morning. have you become. Have you begun to come down from what was what must have been incredible experience. Yeah um actually. I haven't been able to look back on it at all. I'm running on seemed right now. you know shoulder injury. Last night didn't get much sleep so Actually looking forward going to take a nap after this. But again when i wake up and maybe a week or so and a look back at you know what transpired over the last month It's definitely something to be proud about as definitely something my dad would be proud of me about and You know it's one of the things you just keep this ball rolling I've been on the other side. I've i've been in the real world i've been taking classes you know. And you know that's great and all but it's not as fun as playing ball and You know i'm just. I'm glad i was here said if two months ago two months ago you were not on this team correct creek. Yeah so two months ago you're taking classes at old dominion right. Yeah what would you said two months ago. If i said you're going to battle to togo wire-to-wire and one point late in the game. Tom brady is going to look at the camera after play. You made and say unbelievable. What would you say if i told you that two months ago. So you're out of your mind dino it's again it's been a crazy year. Twenty twenty has and You know it's it just speaks volumes of what hard work determination and and you know all that stuff keep keep doing it. Stay on the grind and keep your dreams alive. Great things can happen so again. You know i just. I credit all the all the people that were close to me Kept on pushing me and believe in me and again you know. It's it was something pretty special having last night. Can you just talk a little bit about the atmosphere in this game. saturday night in washington. Because even though it's not an atmosphere with seventy thousand fans it really seemed electric. And i'm just watching it on. Tv describe what it was like on the field on the sidelines looking over. There's brady there's you know there's tampa bay high-powered buccaneers. And here you are. You're pressed into service for the injured. Alex smith take me onto the field. And tell me what it was like. Yeah well i kind of take for back you know After we won the division know. There's a lot of speculation like you know watching doesn't deserve this They have no shot. You know this this and that and You know our whole team saw that on the monday after we won the division and That's all we see and you know we we've prepared really really hard throughout the week And now we wins the game almost thinking that we had nothing to lose. You know everyone was picking the bucks You know are we. We had nothing to lose so we went out and Out there and i thought we did a pretty good job but again We knew it was the playoffs. And you know when brady's on the other side you gotta bring your a game if you wanna win so we went out there and and we we battled game. Just stop a little short When did you know you were going to play. And what was alex. Smith like in the last few days with you Ron rivera told me what we played saturday night. He told me. Friday after a walk through That would be starting and To alex is question that guy that has been nothing but help me ever since i got here since they want and I think that just speaks volumes of his character I mean the guy has been in the league for sixteen years. Obviously battled that crazy injury and then he goes on to win five games You know pretty much is proving everyone wrong and you know for him to take time and help me. Speed montana's dwayne when he was here and It just speaks volumes to them. You know he would. He would delay treatments just to be in quarterback meeting rooms with us. Make sure we knew our stuff and He was a big part of my success. Last night. it's so interesting Alex smith is If you ask. And i once asked patrick mahomes as father and about what. Alex smith had done for patrick in his rookie year. He said what alex smith did for. Patrick patrick can never repay And it's amazing a lot of times when you think about to hear about how unselfish she is with somebody who's basically. He's training to take his job. I've always found that really interesting about alex smith of what a good not not. Only what a good human being is. But what a good teammate. He is yeah You know he. He doesn't have an ego He strictly here to win games. Whether it's him playing or you know him helping the other got play. And i think that's so rare You know the guy strictly just wants to win games and and playing and Again you know. We can't say enough. Good words about him The guys the guys an amazing guys. Inspiration to all of us and Hopefully stick around for a little bit okay. So let's go to the third quarter this game You guys are down. Eighteen ten late in the third quarter. You're driving you've taken the team From your own thirty nine yard line Down to the eight yard line of tampa eighteen to ten. Need a touchdown gotta go head to head with brady and so you run around left end and i want you to take me into that. Run where you stretched for the pylon. Yes so we get a play. Call the Halfback this free released the flats. And i read and they cover them up pretty well..

"It also have ran for a touchdown. What's crazy is that he was going throw fourth row with Tom Brady took me a second ever start in the NFL and imagine that your second ever NFL start came in the playoffs against Tom Brady like man, that's crazy to be any not really did he do? Well, he showed up he kept his team game and this is a guy who was the XFL Saint Louis battlehawks backup quarterback last year. He played the XFL and wasn't even a starter in the XFL, but he came to the NFL package. Outplayed great and I oh man, I really loved it. I believe he earned himself a contract for next year whether it's in Washington or somewhere else if I'm Washington, I'm not letting the guy leave. I'm like, hey, we'll give you some money off saying our team like we want you here and it's kind of crazy cat 6 weeks ago Taylor heinicke was taking college classes at his alma mater Old Dominion finishing up a mathematics degree. Like what am I crazy to me? And also another narrative here that is honest and true. Is that watching Taylor heinicke frankly Shred the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and it wasn't like the Buccaneers were bad. It was that how long was making throw after throw after throw into Tight Windows? Like just really great prose and really great decisions. And I know you can say well it makes the Buccaneers defense like that. I think honestly it just made everything. Wow heinicke can play And the reality is that what it really did here is made it put Dwayne Haskins to shame Dwayne Haskins got cut by the Washington football team earlier this year. He's a former first-round pick who played for them and you know, who your quarterback Dwayne Haskins never once in Washington looked very prepared or like he was doing a lot of work off the field. This guy Taylor heinicke came in with a couple of weeks notice. Learn the Playbook. I think you'll do it from the Panthers. Remember he played for Scott Turner who's the offensive coordinator in Washington and Carolina. He knew the offense already. But my point is he looked way more prepared than Dwayne Haskins ever looked and that's not get a first-round quarterback got embarrassed by Taylor heinicke playing way better than you could I just met and I I also got to say that washing did anybody see Chase young the rookie defensive end from Washington celebrating with Taylor heinicke like he had with Taylor heinicke ran for a touchdown. You saw you know, Chase young runs up. He's putting his finger on the guys back like this is my quarterback and it just shows how long Desperate for a quarterback Washington as they just want somebody to believe in somebody that they can trust will make plays and be good.
Brady outduels Heinicke, leads Buccaneers past Washington
"Tom Brady threw for three hundred eighty one yards in leading the Buccaneers to their first playoff victory since winning the Superbowl in two thousand three thirty one twenty three at Washington Brady misfired on six of his first nine pass attempts before finishing twenty two of forty with two touchdowns with opportunities to pull away and just couldn't quite do it didn't score enough points in the right area so certainly a lot to improve on but crazier when he became the oldest quarterback to throw a playoff TD when he hit Antonio brown from thirty six yards out Brady engineered a sixty nine yard scoring drive capped by a three yard run by Leonard Fournette sealing the win watch it is Taylor Heinicke ran for forty six yards and a touchdown and threw for three hundred and six yards and a score I'm Dave Ferrie

"In the UK and Ireland enjoyed the programme on sky sports my co host today is not bill since it is Chris Adams who is making good on the waiter from yesterday was a very simple proposition if Aaron Rodgers does not play in the Packers third preseason game against the raiders in Winnipeg Manitoba he has to go on by for the full two hours and he has lived up to his bargain even though he accuses me of having some sort of inside information inside yeah influence my believe they're in Rogers would not play yes I I do I stand by that I just don't trust you you knew some then some then somebody up there with knowledge of the situation lead you down that road I just I just have a feeling but either way I'm paying up on my bed here you go on button top but let's let's just unpack that for a second yeah I had inside knowledge that there may be an issue with the field all not gonna bail but maybe something else or maybe okay deal that now and I deliberately sandbag and didn't share that information with the audience at the website I've owned for eighteen years Allah point just set you up to it too to agree to on but your top but for two hours on the program valid point okay your point is made good move on please you look tired out like you thank you very much I feel tired I was up I was up very late working with ball talk dot com last night you were you were tired because you couldn't sleep thinking that you have gonna have to go on television without your preferred button buttoned all the way to the top but I have a feeling that after two hours today you're gonna think you know what to say that's it gives me more freedom yeah I I I can breathe a little more absolutely not that will not happen at any point all right there's been a lot of criticism of the pre season because we don't see the starters play used to be a full half maybe more for the third preseason game the other side of the coin and what you need to know this morning when starters play folk starters can get injured it happened to Panthers quarterback cam Newton who ended up in a walking boot after the Thursday night game against New England Patriots on this sack he got his foot ankle at cetera injured they were looking out on the sideline he walked to the locker room after the game walking boot and here is Ron Rivera and you can just tell by the tone in his voice that he is not happy with the outcome here's Ron Rivera Chris from after last night's game within a walking but that's all I can tell you what did you say on the actual one he got sacked that's about all I saw do you know who might have been when he was cutting in the product Joe I'd like to I don't know I don't know I don't know when and when I get a chance to watch tape I might know but I don't know Chris you we are sixteen days away from week one rams it Panthers and as of right now we don't know if camera is gonna be able to play all because of yet another injury that happens during a preseason game yeah it is first off when you look at the play itself it did not look like anything agree just happened right Mike I mean it's almost like you just jammed his ankle or foot into the turf and I don't I don't know I don't see anything specific to go or that's exactly where he did it but either way you could tell Ron Rivera is concerned you're exactly right about that Mike and he should be we talked about this a little bit on my own button podcast yesterday the Carolina Panthers backup quarterback situation is one of the worst in football I believe it's trouble that team is not the same without cam Newton and they're flirting with that situation disaster with that situation with the guys they have him back backing cam Newton up and yes I mean I I think Carolina's a playoff team with cam Newton this year you know or at least borderline in that conversation if he's not out there then yeah you third they're just an average football team they're going to be nothing they're gonna be middle of the road maybe below average and I think that's where Ron Rivera may maybe some of that reality set in during the press conference and Chris general manager Marty Harney was on a radio show after the game last night and he said we're hoping it's not too bad we'll find out more tomorrow but I hope it's not too bad there's something ominous floating around in those words yeah if it is too bad then maybe it's who knows how long cam Newton Mrs but you got hate West Virginia great will Greer gets an opportunity Kyle Alan Taylor Heinicke yeah the depth chart behind cam Newton is not an impressive one and Chris Chris the name that's going to come up now I know I know Eric reed on that team Eric Reid is going to sound the alarm if cam Newton is out for any extended period of time just like Torrey Smith last year the Panthers receiver who lobbied publicly for Eric Reid to be signed with the Panthers had a needed safety I guarantee you the Torrey Smith and Eric Reid are gonna say Hey it's time to bring calling cabinet to Caroline and give him a chance to be the replacement for cam Newton I said two years ago in cam Newton was recovering from ankle surgery get calling capric for the off season program have an understanding of one can do is healthy you'll let him go but at least it gives everyone a chance to see called Kerr McGee is capable of showing up at practice and and the franchise is not going to disband the next day so if that's going to be the next step in all this I believe if we find out the cam Newton is going to miss anything more than a week or two yes I mean I I hear you Mike I don't think it will happen I'm sure people will clamor for it from pure football standpoint it would make a lot of sense he really he fits what that Carolina Panthers offense wants to do you know it's a little bit of its own concoction of an offense there's not really one out there like it as far as what they do because of cam Newton's skill set and Colin Kaepernick Ding Ding Ding has a similar to a skill set as well so I hear you but I just don't think it's gonna happen coaches him being three years out of the league the attention we discussed all that and I don't think other than just one last thing Hey let me see what yeah so what I want to make sure the record's clear PM always say he's been out of the league for three years out hasn't been out of the league for three years he's been out for two season okay three years ago he was playing for the forty nine sorry man this all new season but about that answer I'm I'm just saying it's it it it's easy for people to think he's been out of the league from his sent her time it really hasn't been a cut Ron Rivera could have his job riding on how this season go by an owner who did not buy the team because he wanted to be able to say Hey one of my employees is run repair he wanted by football team and he may want his own coach in there so runner is going to feel compelled to deliver some victories and he looks at his current options other than cam Newton many thanks this doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence and I'm gonna win enough games to save my bot so I think at some level you weigh distraction verses termination and maybe that becomes a factor for on river F. and we don't know at this point out that the homeowner like you're saying to the owner going to have to sign off on this type of thing because it is going to bring an unbelievable amount of tension to the whole situation and everything like that well and do we know that a well why are we assuming that it will be because we just two weeks of news about JZ who's trying to make progress on the subject and then went back to Colin Kaepernick once again so we know what weld from that standpoint and two years out of the NFL is a long time it really is and it scares coaches that was my only point there when I when I said three my bad on that one right that's right that's right but anyway we'll see how it plays out yeah for now we watch we wait to see whether to what extent cam Newton has an injury that will put his availability for week one in play and if it is how much beyond week one and who do they go with will Greer Kyle Alan Taylor Heinicke none of those options are gonna get people all that excited except for me because I want to see what we're do well because West Virginia got there and is he ready to go week one rookie season that remains to be seen all right moving along to Winnipeg Manitoba not Alberta as we learned yesterday but another thing we learned geographical there is not the only problems in Winnipeg because of that twenty five yard ends on that they use for Canadian football they had to move the goal posts and the problem is when you move the goal posts there's not a nice clean piece of turf under it that created an issue for last night's game between the raiders and the Packers and the end result Chris Simms an eighty yard field there was no way they were canceling that game so they reconfigure the field the ten becomes the goal line the twenty comes the ten and one thing leads to another and the raiders in the Packers play on a field that was only eighty yards long and I I look I understand why they felt compelled to move forward with the game but I I just think for is visual a sport as professional football is something like that it's just all horrible Lacayo for football and then and then the league office has to be so upset today about how this all played out yes and then in the know Hey that they can blame themselves the league office you know hit is the second time and what is this two years where field conditions right we worried about Mexico City last year or was that two years ago I can remember it was last year it was right to wear how are we not doing our due diligence on these type of things in the NFL just to figure out some of those issues that might arise all were playing on a different football field that has different measurements and we might have to move some things around so yeah I I mean I want to say W. T. after the NFL on that one and you're right I mean when you just watch that I couldn't even watch the game I'm I'm not even when I turned it on and looked and saw it for seconds ago okay this this just looks horrible and I went on to other football games I did the same thing yeah the exact same thing it's it's like this is it and when you know it's not a hundred yard free I mean think about it the game is promised all one hundred yards by fifty three all of a sudden all were only gonna play on eighty yards with that it's not a real game right just don't even keep time just call the practice call the scrimmage right do seven on seven if you're not going to play a hundred yard field what the hell are you doing I I I really with the it's like a P. we that's what I we played an eighty yard football field when I was in pee-wee's I mean that that you know that's pee wee league football type of stuff from the hall of fame game cancellation three years ago because they they couldn't drive to paint the day after the holiday him instruments ceremony so they tried to use some sort of a heated system to do it and turned the paint in the concrete that cancel that game canceling the Mexico City game last year between the rams and the chiefs although I have a feeling info and all that upset about that because it end up being the game of the year better to have that game at the Coliseum.
"taylor heinicke" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"In the NFL with the Steelers Jordan Miller cornerback at a Washington in the fifth round the market's green wide receiver Louisiana Monroe keep an eye on those guys sometimes from the Sun Belt not a lot of people you know follow that league and sometimes these guys will make a roster as we look at this falcons depth chart I mean they don't have Tevin Coleman anymore to help out Freeman but talk to me a little bit about this office because the pieces are there when you have a Julio Jones and you have a mom it's a new right there you've got the makings of a pretty solid offense and Calvin Ridley other BAM a guy you know this guy's going to come into his own what do you expect from Matt Ryan and the guys again they don't have that you know the combination now with Coleman and Freeman they do a veto Smith that's still there they did grab Kenyan border they made some acquisitions they lost some players as well Boerner along with along with it a guide that on the offense of line could really excel and that's the addition of James carpenter he comes over after solo career was Seattle the jets so he can pay dividends right away they also grabbed Adrian Claiborne they got Hagen in Stocker Wilcox a good safety and then what's all tackle the did lose Bruce serving in that didn't make much sense because they need help with the pass rush I was kind of surprising letterman Goebel were you as far as the Atlanta film falcons are GP's got well starting up and salute you mentioned they went ahead and retool the whole rates and their offense of linemen gravid Lindstrom again I love Lister me the Mahler is that prototypical just at Boston College grind it out guard he's a really good run blocker hi can I help about when they do run the ball but you're looking at the shield receivers the Yahoo account sentiments in Keller Ridley who is expected by a lot of people to come into his own and can I have a breakout season that's that's one of the best trio the receivers you're gonna find anywhere in the league and it I'm going back to that offense of line it's such a good mix of young talent and then better and to prove himself like Alex Mack and we will work that god has been around forever and you just get that done every year their salad they really are the only place that I've got the real question the question marks about him is that the running backs but you've got a free man he had some injury history and then as you mention behind them there's not a whole lot you know and that's why is that they can do what she does if you have to go down who else can go in and be that every now guy they do got martyrs a change of pace with which is gonna be nice but I'm a little concerned about what's going on and running back if if Freeman can't stay healthy and and can't return to the is formed from a couple years ago defensively they're still athletic they're still really good I like their dad I like that they went back exactly one back from New England I think he's going to be an impact impact player on this defensive line once again loves to cars to gently and wait for that guided to step up and be the pass rusher that they thought he could be a lot of potential there that you know you so that doesn't you finally he's he's just one of the most consistent corners in the league every year it's a good team the thing that scares me about this team at their schedule specifically the front half of that schedule I mean you're open up at Minnesota then you place Philly you play the colts you're gonna travel to Houston he played the ranch to play the Seahawks all before Halloween that is a bear the schedule for this team and that's the one thing that concerns yeah that that I I agree with that now I Minnesota you know there's a lot of pressure on Minnesota because cousins went over there and he didn't produce the way they thought they thought that he was the missing ingredient and you know sometimes you go to tweak something and maybe it's not the right fit we know cousins got as a bigger army and and maybe you know when you're watching you say how this guy's a prototypical guy but Keenan was a guy that just fit into that system and really you know just kind of made the offense go well enough that the defense did their part was to me kind of you know that they were right there and they I think it when you mess with something like that to where there is chemistry a again Kim doesn't have the big arm he's a journeyman type guy but he's a guy that produced that year and for them to come within an eyelash of get into the Superbowl and then to tweak one of the main positions I think that's why they took a step back last year because as good as cousins is on the beautiful touchdown passes he throws he sometimes that a radical in interceptions that he forces so I think that came back to bite him so you're at Minnesota though and there's pressure on Minnesota right out of the gates of that land is going to get the Vikings on the road it's probably a great time you know because of the pressure that song cousins they are so let it goes in there not expected to win that game Minnesota's home opener but they can win that game then you get Philly and get them at home you go to Indy we'll see what the colts have I know there's a lot of people that have the ideas that trendy team the maybe surpassed New England Andrew luck's got some some help now across from T. Y. Hilton he's got some other game day good game breakers as far as on the offense then you get Tennessee at home you go to Houston but I'm not convinced that teams going to be any better if fuller delivers helps out Hopkins you know that'll help out to Sean watch and wait and see how that pans out you get the rams at home and you get Seattle at home so again if you're gonna you know that's all before the by you're right the schedules tough but you got to play somebody and if you're gonna take games like Philadelphia the rams in Seattle at home you got a chance of your land because those teams that are not dome teams now Houston's don't team Indies a dome team they're going to need but tennis is coming in Phillies coming in the rams are coming in and Seattle's coming in none of those team play in a dome so it's always intimidating and that Ryan has an edge over all those guys at home I agree but again even even with the win over Minnesota if they can get a one over her so that you get whatever Tennessee you gotta figure to be favored over Arizona you factor in that that I think there the yeah the saints game run after the by they could start distinct three and six and I'm with the medical lawsuit none of the loss of surprise and that's the thing I mean this Atlanta team potential wise they they can be really good but from what we've seen over the last couple seasons since they took it on the chin in the Superbowl it just hasn't been the same team and I don't know they cannot figure it out he said the potential there especially in the sent the students and young fast athletes liner on that field is going to figure out a way to harness that all right talk to me about Carolina in the draft the Panthers grabbing Brian burns defensive and Florida state I think this guy play a pay dividends Greg little solid tackle at Ole miss another guy that I could see you know getting some time and then we'll Greer he went number one hundred overall out of West Virginia my buddy Joe leasing things will grins gonna make it in the NFL we'll wait and see but you know when you have somebody that's an iconic figure like cam Newton you know you got to wait and see SO will Greer steps in no Taylor Heinicke still there you know right now in the number two slot but I wouldn't be surprised if careers a guy that can you know get on the field if anything happens to Newton yeah I have Christian McCaffrey back he's the steady yet more and right to pretty solid receivers Chris Hogan is there now that's a nice acquisition Greg Olsen if this guy stays healthy still has better than average speed for a tight and and has great hands we know that and then on the defense it took a little while to grab somebody you know that is going to pay dividends that they grabbed inside the division but they grab Bruce urban away from Atlanta and the grub Gerald McCoy as well you talk to me now a little bit about Carolina because I think this team with Keckley still there is still dangerous Eric Reid still there I mean to me this team there's a lot of question more it's because of the cam Newton injury and what not but talk to me about Caroline yeah I think starting on the defensive front seven you talked about you yeah and urban McCauley and and drivers in the draft along with linebacking corps that's already got keep we check counts and that's one of the better from seven in the NFL if that front seven can do what they are capable of doing this game could be really really dangerous offensively he talked about Greer yeah can unite con the canyons been around for a little while now he's taken some shots at the scene we've seen the bigger they are it seems like the faster they fall off that cliff from the start getting those injuries Greer's a guy he's not real mobile if he ever does get that job I kind of feel like they would immediately shift that offense from being can centric to McCaffrey centric which is probably the way it should be going now anyway with with how how often can't get turned how old these get so you keep an eye on that situation it can go down that might be the last time we see him as a starter agrees that good the other guy I really like is the under after free agent out of Georgia lies only feel the dentist yet he was one half of the two thousand yard do it Georgia last year each of you know if he can make the team that's the guy who can you know he can look at a between the tackles I think he's better than ours I really do and if he makes the team you can prove that to a lot of people and and and do a lot of damage receiver corps you know they they got guys they got that you guys are brought in Hogan which which could you know nice they don't really have anybody who you look at the man we really got game plan for this guy they got a nice court study receivers are going to go out there get off and catch the ball Fauria offense of line little long in the tooth kind a kind of patchwork he there but I think again of better present that to come together gel get this thing done it to me it all comes back to the defensive front seven it can be a dominant France seven as we've seen before you get a dominant defense like Denver a couple years ago that can carry all the way to the title as a lot of losses though for this team is well you lose Mike Adams safety you lose right Khalil who retires you lose Julius peppers Devin Funchess on white out position there several faces that will be around including cornerback captain Munnerlyn so you know additions you grab parity from Denver that'll help out on the line a little bit how much will they miss somebody like Thomas Davis who is no longer there as well yeah I mean you can't really replace Thomas Davis please can I.
