We've already turned the page at least in these sports seasons world right college. Football got underway for mostly everybody here. This weekend still got another game tonight right with notre dame traveling to louisville again that you could see and hear on e._s._p._n. And e._s._p._n. Radio and of course in just a couple of days. We raise the curtain written on the n._f._l. Season bears in the packers will get going on thursday night. Then everybody takes on the field here this weekend and with that it's time for some straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless and this past weekend teams finalizing the roster lot of moving and shaking guys come in guys going as they all set their fifty fifty three to get started here for the beginning of this regular season and the team making the most news the last couple of days clearly the houston texans and the texans are an odd odd team in the sense that it's not like they've been unsuccessful the last several years under bill o'brien they have right. They've won three division titles under this head coach. They've only won the won playoff game and you can make the argument that the only reason they won the playoff games because the raiders were playing with a quarterback who was probably not equipped to start a playoff game that was remember when endeavor car went down with a broken leg on christmas eve so it's not like they've been a bottom feeder. They've been actually pretty successful. I think that a lot of teams and a lot of fans would certainly certainly sign up for what the houston texans of able to give them the last couple of years but they had themselves marquee player in today the uncloudy and you knew that eventually has contract was going to be coming into an end and your face with one of two predicaments you can either pay the player or you can look to shop him and get something for him. We know how everything turned out and we know today. The uncloudy is now a member of the seattle seahawks and we'll try to wreak havoc on the quarterbacks in the n._f._c. west out in the great northwest. But what about the houston in texas did they handle this the right way because not only did they trade today be on clinton to the seahawks then they go ahead and they make the move with the miami dolphins and bringing a franchise left tackle tackling laremy tunsil so there's a lot of things to unpack here with houston and specifically the way that they kind of just fine tune this roster over the last forty forty eight seventy two hours and make no mistake about it here guys. This is a team that is acting without a general manager but it is clearly bill o'brien show. He's the one one that is calling the shots. He is the one making the moves here for this football team and it's going to be his you know what on the line if the moves don't pan out now clearly the shape of the a._f._c. south has undergone a little bit of a change over the last couple of weeks with the andrew luck news that he was going to be retiring and the colts turning over the offense to jacoby percent. I get that but you looked at the houston texans team even when luck was figured to be part of the mix for indianapolis and he thought that they had a pretty good chance chance to do some special things here again in this division and in the a._f._c. but let's start with the cloudy situation here first and foremost before we get into the move it they made with the miami dolphins and when you look at what they did in shipping the player off to the seattle seahawks clearly they could not come to an understanding which davey uncloudy in terms of the value houston clearly didn't want to pay the guy what he thought he was worth so they were left with no choice but to send him packing to seattle here. Now look today began cloudy. Has he been a bus definitely not but his been the so-called. Oh called hands down first ballot hall of famer unblock force that we all made him out to be when he was coming out of south carolina. I don't think also remember this was supposedly one of the best defensive prospects that we saw coming out of college football entering the n._f._l. In the last two decades just in terms of somebody going to wreak havoc and get after the opposing quarterback. That's what cloudy was advertised to do. Everybody remembers that viral moment in the bowl game is second to last year against michigan when he decapitated the running back of the wolverines and then his final season there with the gamecocks was kind of a mixed bag. You know you didn't really see him on the field that much the production production dipped a little bit and there were certainly some questions already as to whether or not that was going to carry over once he got onto sundays and playing in the national football league but the texans botched this situation. If you ask me the texans did not handle this situation as well as they could have breath first and foremost when you talk about the role that this player was going to have for this football team this year all right. We know there are some easily easily. Some talented players on that side of the field for the houston texans a right. They've got some playmakers on defense. But what did you know so then you ask yourself a question. If you're gonna pay baby unclogging all this money is going to reap the rewards big picture for you and i think that when you look at some of the dollars have been thrown around to some other players like for example we just celebrated the one year anniversary of khalil mack getting traded to the chicago oh bears and you think about the whole that the raiders got for him and then the money subsequently that the chicago bears had to pay the player. I don't think i'm alone in saying that. Cloudy is not in the same category as khalil mack. He's not you know we thought it was. Maybe going to be the other way around coming out of college into the draft. We thought cloudy. It was gonna be superior. Player and mack was a guy who played at buffalo where the competition certainly wasn't as good as it was in the s._e._c. He made an impact down there but you wonder if that was going to translate translate into the national football league and it has and then some and he has become arguably the best pass rusher in the national football league clown. He's not bad he's. He's just not on that level so if you're houston. I think you have every right to say yeah. I don't think the player is worth what he was asking but then you better at least get it's something good in return and that is where we can sit here and examine. Did they get the best offer they could have and more importantly. Did they handle it the best way they could. Have you know you you think about the houston. Texans right. Now and cloudy had a little bit of leverage in this situation all right. He chose not to sign the franchise tag. He stayed away from the football team. He had every right to do so what the texans should have done here if they didn't want to pay him. They should have traded him before july. The fifteenth july fifteenth was the deadline of course. If you had a franchise player that was the deadline to sign him to a contract extension that is when the texans should have made sure he was no longer on the roster because he kind of saw this day ultimately happening because he wasn't gonna sign the tag. The team wasn't gonna give them huge money that is when they should've shopped them to make sure they got something to him and he couldn't be traded until signing the franchise tender and now look at what houston ended up getting in return for what twenty five cents on the dollar if that you know. Do you think that this player fire who still i think on a good day is one of the better pass rushers in the national football league one of the more feared players in the national football league you send them to the seattle seattle seahawks and you get a third round pick and a couple linebackers arkadiusz mingo who's been nothing more than a journeyman so far in his career. That's what you got form. You know is that adequate. I don't think so and by the way you're paying half his salary ellery so once again the seattle seahawks who i don't know if we're going to sit here and put the seahawks in the category of super bowl contenders in a team that you know you may think could go all the way this year they still got a lot of work to do but seattle and john schneider and that organization show you why they've been a well run team team over the last several years and they have a super bowl championship in the last decade and they've been competitive even as they continue to turn over this roster they continue to be competitive and they probably will be again this year because getting cloudy for what they got him for right as i said a couple of journeyman players and and a third round pick and you've got other team to kick in some of the money for the salary what's better than that what's better than that right now so if you're the seattle seahawks and it's another example of why they get it and why they've been so competitive if you think about the moves here dating all the way back to the off season season for the seattle seahawks john schneider they made the move to trade frank clark right they moved on from him and nisa centrally turn frank clark into today beyond cloudy ziggy ansah who they signed of course as a free agent in the offseason season l. j. collier who you drafted with some of the pictures you got in the frank clark trade brilliant maneuvering <music> by john schneider as far as i'm concerned brilliant maneuvering and that's why they get it and that's why you look at the seahawks and you can never discount their chances on a year-on-year route basis can't say the same thing about the houston texans. I mean houston more often than not if he asked me. They've benefited the last couple of years from being a division in which was kind of up and down the best. Am i right or am i wrong. They have a lot to prove here winning the a._f._c. a._f._c. south with a nine seven record granted. They weren't nine seven last year. I know that but in a couple of other cases they were and people kind of scoffed at it because you don't take it as legitimate and the only reason you're sitting there is because you have an inferior division and hey somebody's got to win it and remember that sparks all the conversation about whether that if you're an inferior division and champion whether you should even get a home playoff game and they want and fans want the n._f._l. To go about changing the way that it distributes playoff teams and awarding home games and so on and so forth. I'm not going that far yet okay and hopefully we don't have to deal with that moving forward but it is what it is and it happened okay so they move on from cloudy. They don't get enough compensation as far as i'm concerned but they don't stop there because let's face facts when you're talking about the houston texans their biggest commodity right now. Their biggest investment is shawn watson gave their franchise quarterback. He is the guy and they have. I've been looking for the last couple of years to essentially find a replacement for duane brown. The franchise left tackle and now they think they finally got one in en- laremy tunsil in a trade with the miami dolphins okay by all accounts. This is a pretty good move. He's under contract for two more years so you don't have to worry worry about the money as far as that is concerned and if we remember what happened to houston last year and specifically shawn watson to shawn watson got sacked sixty two times in two thousand eighteen they that's a lot of hits. I don't care if he's a mobile quarterback. I don't care visa strict pocket passer. I don't care what type of skill sets he has. That's too many times for your commodity. Go down your prized possession. You need to keep them upright and so hopefully by getting tunsil. That's going to help them and know by the way you bring kenny stills to go with the stable of wide receivers was that they have down there in houston as well win win for shawn watson so that's gotta make him happy but they pay premium boy. Do they give up a lot to get him okay. They gave up a first round. Pick in twenty and twenty one. They gave up a second round. Pick in two thousand thousand twenty one. They give a couple of other players as well so they paid a half the price to be able to get these guys here so houston texans a better football team today than they were on thursday. If you're asking me i probably say yes for two thousand in one thousand nine hundred you worry about the future when you worry about the future and that's something that they're going to have to come to terms with as we move into next season and the following coming year and draft time and so on and so forth houston is going all in on two thousand and nine thousand nine look the n._f._l. Is a year to year proposition discuss for players. This goes for coaches. We weren't even one hundred percent sure. The bill o'brien was even still going to be around to coach football team for two thousand nine hundred and not only is he coaching the football team. He's running the football team. He is the one at the controls making all the calls here. He's the guy so bill. O'brien is worrying about this year and this year alone who's to say and i don't want to get inside his head but we've seen things before in the national football league. We've seen seen some shady stuff go on and i'm not even saying that this would be shady but who's to say bill o'brien in the back of his mind somewhere a deep dark secret that he has figures you know what i'm going to try to win this year and i already got my eye on another gig for two thousand and twenty that might not even be in the n._f._l. Maybe somewhere in college who the heck knows i. I can't get inside his head. You can't get inside his head. He's trying to win now and go all in and if they thought that they couldn't get themselves a franchise left tackle better than laremy tunsil with where they figure to draft in the next couple of years then they went ahead and made this move. You've that's why you go ahead and get it done. You got a quarterback right now. Who's entering his prime. Who shown you that. He's extremely extremely talented. Who shown you that you keep them upright. Good things generally happen. That's why they go all in and make this move do do i agree with it for the short term yes long-term that might not be bill o'brien's problem but you would hope that the shawn watson is still going to be there there and you hope that he's not gonna take many hits as he may have previously if you didn't solve the problem on the offensive line and he'd be able to play more productive duct football. That's why you go ahead and make this move now. What about the miami dolphins right now. You've got to think about well. What are they doing. You look back to the off season and the moves that were made by this franchise. You knew that they were turning page. You knew that they were moving on. They decided the fire adam days last year and start new with brian flora's and there was gonna be some changes in personnel. They were going to say goodbye to some players. Bring in a little bit the youth anytime you have a regime change like this new coaches are going to want to bring in the players. They feel comfortable with. They're going to want to bring in players. They can both maybe grow with the program at the same time. That's why you see so much. Roster turnover in the national football league specifically when you have coaching changes isn't regime changes like gavin miami and they've been adamant in the last couple of days since these moves happened that we are not tanking no way no how we're not tanking. You know what you could say that they're not taking. The dolphins can say that they're not tanking. I don't know what word you want to use. Who's as far as i'm concerned and try to win this year. I can promise you that. The dolphins are not trying to win this year so they could say that. They're not tanking. Hey if they win four games this year. I'd be surprised but they're well positioned for the future. Dolphins now have two picks in each of the first round in each of the first three rounds. I should say in the two thousand twenty drift. It's pretty good. It's pretty good good but sometimes all those draft picks. Don't necessarily bear the fruits that you hope they will. I always say when it comes to draft choices you. You can have fifty million of them but unless you hit home runs with those picks what good are they and if you're a fan if you don't have trust in the folks that are making those selections. What good are they. I mean do. I have to take you back not even too long ago. I know the cleveland browns are like the darlings of the n._f._l. Right now and everybody thinks that they do wrong and they're going to be in the super bowl here pretty soon but a wasn't that long ago where the cleveland browns have draft choice after draft choice after draft choice remember and then they swung and missed on virtually all them and they were like a joke around the national football league so so it serves as a reminder that yeah you can have all these draft choices that doesn't mean that you're going to strike gold with them and that's what you got to be careful with your the miami dolphins you know tunsil especially and i remember everything that happened with him on draft night and there was controversy that was surrounding him back on draft night with the viral picture and all the other stuff but you know what he's blossom into a pretty good left tackle in the national football league easily a top ten player at the position and if you're miami you know what that would probably be a position an area of need then now you have to go searching for because you had one and and you traded him away for draft choices. That's something you've got to be careful about and you know look. I wasn't expecting a lot what about the dolphins this year i really wasn't okay and clearly the moves that they made here in the off season showed you they had one eye towards the future but because of that that and you could say that they're they got an eye on to tongue of iowa and hopefully they're going to pick first or second and they're gonna they get their hands on the alabama quarterback either him or justin herbert of oregon or somebody because you figure they need to find out who their franchise cuba's while while why do you then go ahead and decide to start ryan fitzpatrick this week against the baltimore ravens ryan. Fitzpatrick is a good guy. He really is okay but you know what you're getting ryan fitzpatrick. He might pull a couple of throws at a you know where he he might go off one game but then the interceptions are gonna amount and he's going to revert back to the main and then you're gonna see ryan. Fitzpatrick has been the definition phoenician the enemy of a career journeyman. You have josh rosen. You made the move for josh rosen. Josh rosen was a first round. Pick a year ago and it's costing you essentially very little to see what you have in josh rosen it is an affordable foldable one year on decision to see if this guy is going to be part of your future not but maybe the regime with the miami dolphins never liked him to begin with while he was coming out out of the draft last year possible but i just think if you've already made these moves and if you've stocked up on all these draft choices you might as well see what this this guy has so then when you go into next off season you can then no one way or the other we need a quarterback or we don't need a quarterback. The ryan fitzpatrick thing makes no sense to me whatsoever. None whatsoever rosen may not turn out to be any good and a lot of sports. A lot about being successful is opportunity. Is it not josh rosen so far. He's not going down very good. Wrote say what you want about arizona last year. The offensive offensive line was garbage. He was not in a situation that was conducive to him being successful now. He's going to go to miami and trade away. Their franchise left tackle. He's pricing himself. Oh my goodness when i get on the field. Is anybody going to be able to block for me at all in the national football league so he's heading down a road which may not make him successful. This will may not make him a desired commodity in and around the national football league and there might be some underlying circumstances as to why it's not just on the player it was josh rosen going to go down the road of being another derek carr. David cars should say who was sacked more than any other. Quarterback is first couple of years with the houston texans because they had no offensive line that was straight talk wireless everything for less only at walmart a lot of things we gotta gotta get into.

Some in football start off with robin houston rob. You're on e._s._p._n. Radio and e._s._p._n. News hey what's going on. Rob just wanted talk. Talk a little bit about the houston texans and how they're messing up this season before. It even starts <hes> today. Climbing wasn't happy playing in in in houston because he was he was playing basically out of position and the three four defense not an outside linebacker defensive van and bill o'brien not the very smartest coaches in the lead. He just does the team. The franchise just allowed <hes> the defensive secondary to be decimated made it because they they won't keep in the good defense back that they have kareem jackson was just coming into its own plan safety and <hes> they trade him yeah they gotta hold onto <hes> johnson joseph johnson jokes and singing his better days so i don't understand why <hes> the front office office who basically trades gets rid of the general manager days after the draft. What does that say about the organization. That don't really know what they're doing. Well remember something to robert. Thank you for the phone call. You have a change in ownership. I mean it still in the mcnair family but bob mcnair of course passed away way a year ago so you know you have the family running the show but maybe they do things a little bit different ways to the patriarch used to run the franchise sanchis. Look you make valid points all right a little today. We know that in college he was a piece when he had his hand in the dirt and yes you could make the case. He was playing out of position here on the the next level in the national football league but you also have a lot of other guys here in this defense of huddle whether it be j._j. Watt whitney mercilus guys that are accomplished in their own right and had success getting to the quarterback as well. I don't think that you're married to one scheme necessarily either when it comes to defense you know a lot of these teams are going to show different different packages and there were plenty of times when today cloudy was playing as a down. Lineman had his hand in the dirt but the production was not there. I mean you could make excuses. You can point fingers. The production was not there and he was overshadowed by a guy on his own team j._j. Watt let's be real you know he's not the every down dominant beast playmaker that we thought he was going to be and i think the texans let's be honest probably probably have to ask themselves a question as to whether or not they wanted to make an investment and give huge dollars to this player who consistently over over the course of his career probably not proven that he's worth it. He's not khalil mack as we said at the beginning of the program he's not as dominant a pass rusher as khalil mack has been and that's maybe a little bit of a surprise as we thought maybe was when he was coming into the n._f._l. But it hasn't worked out that way look the texans defense has been pretty accomplished over the last few years but now you're seeing a philosophical shifts with how they want to build this football team because all those years when the defense was the stronger of the two units on their team yeah they were getting in the playoffs but were they really contenders. When you talked about getting getting to a super bowl and the answer was no right. They had to get better on offense. They had to get stronger. They had to increase and improve the quarterback back production brian hoyer of the world the brock osweiler's of the world it just wasn't getting it done for them and bill o'brien knew it and now they have to shawn john watson and watson has shown that you know what he's more than capable they've given him weapons at wide receiver they brought him another one here in kenny stills and they wanted to make sure they could keep them upright right than anything else and that's why they made the tunnel move and now when i look at the houston texans okay and i know they lose lamar miller to they've tried to piece it together. They made the move to bring in carlos hyde here just to add some depth to running back. I get it but if you're looking at the houston texans right now if you ask me clearly. I think that shift has already happened to where you're looking at more of an offensive first team and i think that's how you have to be. I think that's how you have to be and moving away from today's van clowney and moving on from him. I think also add some testament to that as well aided eight say e._s._p._n. Is a telephone number. Let's say how to poland jacksonville paul. You're on the stephen a smith show well. Hello hello there mr how you doing so ball well. I'll tell you what now the j._v. and cloudy saying <hes> y'all even you know. Even though i'm living here in in jacksonville i could care less about this division. Yeah i agree. I i grew up in michigan so you know we're all so the thing about is would taping. I'm cloudy is just like yeah. He was beat up. When he got drafted. Okay great. He stayed up last couple of games before he got drafted. Got you got. Ah got drafted for yeah. As as i overall pick in the first round he had good you know not great but good numbers okay okay great but then he started he started getting overshadowed by video tape merciless and what and now now they brought tussle into actually actually give the shawn watson yeah some protection for the first time since he's been there you know yeah he was. He was expendable and that's what it is. Did they give up. No no clearly not even clear hall clearly not and i think you know expendable. I don't know if he was necessarily expendable like if the texans had their druthers and he was still under contract for let's say four or five more years. They love to have them. They'd love to bring him back but for the money honey you were eventually going to have to pay the player that's where they had to make a decision and they decided to move on the problem with the texans is is that you could kind of see this all materializing early early on in the off season. I mean you go all the way back to like march and there was a ready cement. Bill brian was saying it even way back when that that he was not going to be surprised if clowney stayed away from a lot of the team activities that they were gonna have during the off season and even show up to training camp because he wasn't going to sign the franchise tender so if you wanna find fault with the texans as i said earlier you find fault with the way that they handle the trade they should. I did it a lot sooner. You had to get them out of here by that that july fifteen deadline and because of that look at what they got back in return and by the way by the way on the flipside let me go back to miami for a second so i can hear you realize miami got more in the laremy tunsil trade then the raiders even got for khalil mack and what the giants when they traded odell beckham to the cleveland browns i mean miami hit a home homerun but the danger is now. You have all these draft choices. You're going to have to be able to go out there and make sure that your strike with all of these assets that you have and when you look at miami dolphins i know you're new people calling the shots but their track record here at least of late little bit spotty say how to connor and oklahoma connor. You're on the stephen a smith show. How are you good. How are you what's up garner. <hes> you made the comment meant that starting. It's patrick would make no sense to rosen right right well. I think that it makes thanks a lot more sense. I think josh rosen isn't the quarterback people think he is. I think he's already. We know that what i think he was way overhypes to begin with. I don't think that he <hes> he was <hes>. I don't think he's a player that people thought he was in colorado. We know i i just i just watching him in college compared to all the other quarterbacks were drafted that year. I don't think he was the best option. I just think that counter-culture. I'm i'm not saying you're wrong. I i'm really not saying you're wrong and as a matter of fact i'll even go as far as to say that i kind of agree with you all right because i didn't love josh frozen out of all those quarterbacks coming out in last year's draft when he looked at mayfield darnold allen rosen throw him in there lamar jackson i would've put rosen probably no hire no higher than fourth on that list that maybe even fifth of the guys that i preferred coming into the draft so i'm not saying you're wrong necessarily but from an organizational standpoint here's the problem. I have if you're the miami dolphins right. You're not winning this year. You've already basically sold your fate and you said we're waving the white towel on two thousand and nineteen. We just gave away. Our franchise left tackle among others all right. We're not trying trying to win in two thousand nine hundred but we're tanking but we may not be trying to win the super bowl either and they're not winning a super bowl but not making the playoffs. They're going to be one of the worst teams in the n._f._l. This year hear that being said you made the move to bring in josh rosen all right. You didn't pay normally form but you made the move to bring him in. Don't you owe it to yourself as an organization sation to at least see what you haven't him and i'm not talking about relief duty coming in for when either fitzpatrick gets hurt which unfortunately has been part of his m._o. As well oh or he starts throwing interceptions left and right which you can almost guarantee. I think you have to start the show with rosen and let it go as long as possible to see the good to see the bad to see if he is going to be part of your future because it's not costing you that much this year and if you wanna cut bait at the end of the year so be it. It's not gonna be veto prohibitive on you either. It's essentially a one year audition. That's why this makes no sense to me and i think if you're a dolphin fan you would probably want to see the young quarterback to what you have to gain by watching. Ryan fitzpatrick asked the fifteen other teams that he's played for. What is there possibly the weight gain by having him. Be your quarterback. That's just a sample of what you hear on the steve any swift show weekdays at one p._m. Eastern on e._s._p._n. Radio and the e._s._p._n. App.

OchoLive: Previewing Week 5's Cowboys And Texans Matchup

"Nona. What up world welcome to another episode of July presented in partnership is always Espy nations, blog on the boys dot com. My name our Joe show, of course, you know me from BT and from right here as your host on alive, you can watch our live shows every day about three PM central time. Sometimes you got to fly early. Sometimes you gotta fly late and sometimes we fly with podcast only episodes, which is why we are gathered around the campfire today. Make sure you subscribe at the bottom of the boys podcast feed on apple and Android devices. The blog on the boys podcast network operates, of course in partnership with us be nation and vox media. And sometimes we do. We do special podcast only episodes as opposed to the live shows because we have special things to discuss. And that's why we're here today. We have brought in the best. We have brought in a professional. We have brought in somebody who is actually a veteran around here to some degree. Those of you that have been listening to me since the Ol- Arjo Chohan show days will. Remember him fondly. I'm talking of course about the one, the only the man the myth. The legend. Jimmy gel. Seth nna my friend, my compadres. My chorus own James. How're you doing. That is the best introduction I've ever had in my life. It's all downhill from here. I feel like I've, I've done similar introductions for you with that much passion. I don't think that's fair. I don't think that's true. I don't know. There's something in the air today. I'm going to be on this lot of Noli not so you you and I go way back just to kinda reset the table. You and I met our freshman year at Texas am university hoop. You got you gotta do it. And so we've known each other. I don't wanna data's not the worst were super older anything, but it was a long time ago. Fair. Yeah. It's been at least what ten years Jimmy. I told him I didn't wanna datus. Why are you telling everybody how old we are. I mean, you know whatever the point is, we go all the way back to when we were little freshman at fish camp, Texas, AM. If you don't know what that is. We don't have five hours to explain it. But when I said, you know, when I saw this in realize the couch planned the Texans this year, I said, okay, I've gotta get Jimmy because Jimmy is our resident Houston, Texans expert, you reside. You live your from the metropolis of Houston, Texas. You're on Twitter at the Jimmy jowl which is where everybody should fall. I know that you're in this exclusively for the Twitter follows, but yes, but welcome back is the furniture different around here. I know it's been a minute. Yeah, it's been a while. It's been quite a while since I was last on, but there also hasn't been a whole lot to talk about as the resident Texans expert for you either. Well, so I remember very vividly the night before I drove up to the star when the cow was drafted taco Charlton when I drove up with the SPN San Antonio, I remember watching that first round and you were, you're mess you were beside yourself because the Texans traded up to draft a Shawn Watson. So it's been a long time. We haven't even really gotten thoughts on Sean here here on on show live or or any sort of, oh, Joe platform. But I will say I realized this the other day shot at two front of the show Mark lane who tweeted that this past Sunday week, four of the two thousand eighteen season was the first time that the Cowboys and Texans both one in a week since late two thousand sixteen coincidentally that same week the Cowboys beat the lions. It was the. The Christmas weekend stringer games. I believe you are at that Texans game when Houston beat the Bengals for the division title off of Randy Bullock's last second field right on Christmas Eve. Yeah, it's been unfortunate. The Texans last wind last week on Sunday against the colts was their first win about nine months. So right off the bat, there hasn't been a whole lot of winning going on here in Houston. I will say I don't like the whole like, oh, it's difference when nine months because it's like how, how many of those amounts were they not playing football? You know what I mean? Like understand, but it's also just with disarm Watson, getting hurt. You haven't had good football in so long, and we had to wait a little while start the season actually see a win. So it was the first. It broke a nine game losing streak for the Texans, their week, four win. And I really watched the game last night in preparation of speaking to you. Although, I mean, we talk all the time I want you to know I didn't do any homework just for you like I didn't do anything that shot. I expect as much. Right. Okay. So the Texans beat the colts in overtime and overtime thriller James, they're seven to thirty four, but I'm curious. I think a lot of Cowboys fans occurs before we get into this week five matchup. I mean, like if you haven't won a game in nine games and you win the way the Texans one with Frank Reich rolling the dice. I remember what you texted me in the moment, but I'll let you tell the audience. I was that just kind of like that seems like a crummy way to break the streak doesn't feel real well. It's definitely not rewarding. This is one of the least rewarding wins you can have. It's completely dependent on the opposing team's coach making one of the most boneheaded decisions he can possibly make in that situation. The end of the day, you still blue in eleven point lead in the fourth quarter and struggled on offense. You made a bunch of mistakes mismanaged your timeouts. Again, it's definitely not a big notch in the belt for Bill O'Brien. Well, so you struggled on offense and I think that that's important in as Cowboys fans listen to this. I think they're gonna go, do you don't know what it's like to struggle on offense? I mean the you put up thirty seven points. Understanding that involves overtime. You over four hundred fifty total offense of yards three games over four hundred offense of yards in general. The Cowboys barely cracked four hundred yards with their win against the lions. So I don't think you I in this in this arena, have a right to be talking about, you know, lacking offense firepower well, I don't think it's completely a fair comparison. I mean, the the Texans have definitely had their struggles and despite that huge number of thirty seven points last week, you got to keep in mind. One touchdown was defensively, and the offense just doesn't look like it's clicking at all for quarters at a time. And there's a lot of questions about the play calling you guys are familiar with that, and there's just not a lot to be super excited about and it feels like in Houston, Shawn Watson, putting up great numbers in spite of Bill O'Brien, not because of him. So let's let's kinda set the table before we talk this specific match. If anyone hasn't realized, obviously making our way to the week five Sunday night football game between the Cowboys in the Texans, Jimmy lives in Houston. And I said that you should go to this game in in, you know you like, oh, I'm having a kid and you thought that was a legitimate excuse. So I mean, whatever Jimmy ninety, five percent sure that was never an excuse. Look, whatever your future child will be Cowboys fan. I'm sure of it. Those tickets are hard to get a lot of demand there anywhere expensive anyway. So what are your thoughts as we as we make our way. To this game. What are your thoughts on the Texans? I mean, how would you describe sort of your feelings about you know your team, your one in three through the first quarter in that win. As we, we've said is a little hollow. Granted, it was a road division when I think that's really important to note. And I do think it's it's kind of crummy that the Texans had to play to road division games and play on the road in New England and their first four games. I mean, that's that's a tough sort of setting the table for anybody, but so what are your just general temperatures when it comes to the Texans after the first quarter completely cold? The one good thing about this year in comparison to last year so far, no major injury concerns. And then also if we do suck for the entire year purchase, definitely a possibility. We at least have draft picks this year. That's tell you how I feel. I think just going into this match up. We're gonna see two of the worst coaches in the NFL go head to head and inevitably there's going to be some major boneheaded decisions from both sides. That's a, that's a pretty powerful to put this. And I'll say this again, I, I really encourage you to follow me on Twitter. He's a bit aggressive. He's not. He's not the quietest guy, but but Jimmy is a lot of fun because when the Texans are bad, nobody thrashes them like him and really James. This is your first year with like hope at the end of the tunnel, I guess, is the way I would describe it because two years ago was the Brock roller coaster a year ago as you're saying it was just this matter of all man. Well, you know, even if terrible we don't have a first or second round draft pick. So what do we do in this force? And now you're, you're kind of back to normal. You know what I'm saying? You're back. Maybe not feeling good, but at least you're feeling normal. So so welcome to normal. But you said that this would be a match of two of the wars head coaches in the NFL, obviously, talking about Bill O'Brien and Jason Garrett. Do you really feel that way? I really do. I will sing going into last week game against the colts for the Texans that if Bill O'Brien found a way to lose that game should be fired midseason as the first coach firing of the year and. I mean, yeah, they pulled out a win, not because of anything special that he did, but I still firmly believe that both of these coaches should be on the topping block, and I don't see the benefit of keeping them throughout the year. Letting the finish out the year. I'd be fine. Cutting ties with both of them personally, who has been worse, I guess, in your esteemed opinion. I think it's a little bit simplistic to just look at the wins and losses, but the Cowboys have at least come out and kind of played a full for quarter game. Where's the Texans have not the Texans have had ongoing problems with the offensive line for seemingly five years. Now, in the Bill O'Brien era, there's a lot of issues that they have that have been ongoing for years and the play calling is also one of them. Clock management is another one. It seems like nothing is really improving and going back to Shawn Watson yet he can put up the numbers. He can look great, but I think it's really in spite of Bill O'Brien in spite of that coaching staff. Wow, that's, you know, I think fans would jump and say Jason choice. This isn't weird questioned a debate because everybody wants to win this x. everybody feels their coaches, the worst, I'll say. In defensive gear, but in defense of the idea they may be geared as the wars just to oppose you for a second. I mean, I don't know that Bill O'Brien -sarily. I mean, he's got talent, and there's, there's no denying that he's got talent on both sides of the ball. But I mean, if you're Jason Garrett, you're talking about this team the two years ago on thirteen games. Last one, nine games you have arguably the best running back on the NFL behind one of the best defensive lines and you know your offense is broken right now if you're the Cowboys. And I think what makes that a little bit more of a flagrant offense for me is that they designed it that way. They stripped away pieces. They completely had every option to do this to do that, and they built this. And now it's a product of what they designed them accents. Yeah, that makes perfect sense. And I think there's some some similarities here in Houston as well on the defensive side of the ball and less under thing to talk about in this matchup is just, you know, we're playing tweet the other team strengths and a lot of ways the front seven on defense for the Texans is still pretty solid. And you know the running game for the Cowboys is obviously amazing. I think it's gonna come down to how well Dak can attack the Texan secondary who has been awful, who has been underperforming and has been a little bit embarrassing at times with how they played this year. So we're really not going to see a lot of strength versus weaknesses in this matchup. It's going to be what the Cowboys do best great up against what the Texans do best, and it's going to be interesting to see. Okay. Well, let's talk. Let's talk about this game and I should say by the way, I think always fans are miffed with you because the Texans had an. Opportunity to help us, not that the giants are real threat, but you lose, I mean, come on James. You've got to, you know, we got to help each other out here. We'll beat the colts and we'll beat the titans and you beat the giants and eagles things like that. But the last time, four years ago, when the Cowboys was the south, they swept the division beaten, the Jaguars in London, and the Texans game went to overtime. That was quite the thriller the Tony Romo JJ watt, spin game the death Bryant catch at the end of it. The damn Bailey field goal Arian foster had a great game that was a long time ago now that I think about it. But anyway, this game in Houston. Last time, the Cowboys were in Houston for a regular season game, things were rough. The seas were rocky. It was the last win of Wade Philips's career as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. He would be fired later on in the middle of the season. And I think the maybe I don't want to x. factor, but I remember very vividly after that twenty fourteen season in the twenty fifteen draft wanting Kevin Johnson, Dallas. I wanna Kevin Johns with the twenty seventh pig. I wanted him so badly, and I was so pissed off the Texans took him and the Cowboys ended up with Byron Jones who now is at least through four games this season. One of the premier Cornerbacks in the NFL out to the position which meanwhile, Kevin Johnson finds himself on injured reserve. You mentioned the secondary. The Cowboys secondary. I mean, the Cobb was defense is a whole is the only defense in the NFL of that interception. So how do you see these two secondaries? Are you at all intimidated by the Cowboys secondary, how you know, unconscious. Are you in the Texans secondary? Because I do think that's where this match going to be won or lost to your point between these two young quarterbacks, or I'll give you Kevin Johnson in a heartbeat right now if you want him. I'm good. I'm good. I'm good. You sure about that. I'm fine. I really am. And just for him, he was someone that his rookie year he looked amazing. You've got a lot of pride in that drastic and thought he could be something great and it's all been downhill from there. But. It's going to be rough man. I think the Texans will actually give the Cowboys a interception this week and I don't think it should be anything Cowboys fans should be excited about because that's kinda dishonor Watson's MO he's going to turn the ball over. We know it. He has that kind of Taliban where it's a fifty fifty ball. I'm just going to throw it sometimes and it's hurt the team a lot. And it's still he's a young quarterback. It's gonna work through those kings and play smarter, but he's not there yet. So you guys will get an interception. That is my promise to you guys. You will get one just don't feel too excited about it because it doesn't make anyone special. So it's not real. What you're saying we give. It's like a goody bag thinks playing the Texans. Hope you had a good time. Here's your intercept. So it's like it's like Frank right doing for them, fourth down on his side of the field and overtime in a game. Exactly. Yeah. It's just a gift. Okay. So you think the Cowboys come up with an interception. I think that's a cool. I might sign that into my bold predictions in give you. Hat tip. If I don't, there's the, you know, at least an audience that can be your witnesses that I stole it. That's not where it's going to stop there. This this offensive line that I referred to a little bit for the Texans. It's going to have about five or six penalties guaranteed can be another bowl prediction for you. Okay. At home, it's a home game. It's a home, yes. Two or three of those are going to be false starts just how the Texans operate. And it's a little bit embarrassing at home. I promise you three false starts in about five or six penalties on the offensive line talking about a battered, offensive line battered. But I mean, again, it's kind of like the Cowboys offense and Jason. I mean, this was the office of line the Texans designed by the way, an interesting subplot to this game. I feel like hasn't been made his big enough of a deal as I thought it would be, although in probably get some play on NBC during the game is the Martin brothers, not I, I really thought that was going to get like we'd get like an expose in the middle of the week about how they grew up playing together, and now they're going to be on opposite sides of the field and Texas and football. Anyway. You talking about this offense of line. That's that's not not doing well. How terrified are you? DeMarcus, Lawrence, the NFL's current sack leader. I'm extremely terrified and inside even for just him putting up numbers, I'm concerned about Shawn, Watson health, especially because I do know with the oftens lending so week, we're not gonna have any kind of run game. So it's going to be a lot of dropping back scrambling and I'm terrified. He's gonna get destroyed by DeMarcus Lawrence in particular. Well, I wanna get your answer to this on tape because this is something you and I have talked about again, so I want witnesses in the room so to speak. We talked about how the Cowboys maybe lucked out in terms of the twenty fifteen draft pick first round pick between Houston and Dallas and Kevin Johnson environ- Jones. How do you feel about the two thousand fourteen draft picks between these two teams because you just mentioned being terrified, DeMarcus, thorns the Cowboys traded up for at the top of the second round and almost a whole round earlier the Texans to today. Uncloudy number one. Overall, who. Who would you rather have right now, who would rather have long term? Do you think is better? I mean, what are your general thoughts on that particular sort of comparison? So this is gonna sound weird. JV clowney, just coming off the AFC defensive player of the week. Coming off a great week. He had two sacks. He had a defensive touchdown, democracy, three, six. I'm just saying AC defensive player of the week. He's he's played very well recently. I think DeMarcus, Lawrence is a better player. I think today in cloudy has had some motivation issues. I think he's a little bit of a head case at times and the injuries. He is always missing games. We know right off the back. He had microfracture surgery. You're one what? The Texans, which is a major knee surgery and ever since he's missed a handful of games every year. It seems like there's major injury concerns, and then even when he is healthy, I don't know if it's because of nagging injuries or what, but there are stretches of games where you don't even call his name. You don't even notice him on the field, and I don't feel like that's the case, DeMarcus, Lawrence, no matter what no matter what the score is. No matter who the opponent is. You're still seeing him. Make a press, makes his presence known on the field. Well, that's interesting. And I really, I did want to kind of flesh that answer out, DeMarcus. Lawrence does have twenty sacks in his last twenty games obviously had three sacks on Sunday again. The lions and I'm sure he's he's licking his chops. For this match against the Texans as our imagined the rest of the hot boys. You are a bit of a music aficionado of music history buff. How do you like the name, the hop boys? Well, I have my niche. I like the heavy metal, the hard rock sorta stuff. So I, I understand the hot boys reference. I hate the name. I absolutely hate the name, especially with Zeon it. I think it's awful. It doesn't inspire fear in me. I'm not going to be like, oh man, the high boys destroyed to Shawn Watson, like, you'll never hear me say that you might find something else. We need to find something else. You might say that I think that this Sunday, but okay, it's firmly established that you think Byron Jones is a baller two degree. You think, DeMarcus, Lawrence baller you think that Jason Garrett has the coaching advantage in this game so far, everything's coming up Dallas at least through the eyes of Jimmy gel. And now it's time to talk about the weakest part of the Cowboys team, which is not a fortunate thing too. Exist in the year, two thousand eighteen, but the Cowboys offense. The Cowboys offense had not squid touched on in the second or third quarter until this past Sunday and salons. When they did both, they had broken four hundred yards of total offense this season. In fact, they had barely broken three hundred in their loss to Seattle. This offense has been a struggle, this offense. It's felt like pulling teeth at times and yes, they're kind of themselves, but you know, in sort of reassessing the win against the lines, it was a win and you'll take just like, you'll take the win over the colts, but. Am I please the deck Prescott played? Well, definitely. But I'm still really concerned. You look at the sack that that got to. I know that you're watching the Texans game, but took a sack on third down after a field feelable range in the second half I sent you this on on Wednesday afternoon Dak Prescott you know, driving near the end of the game, ran out of bounds right in front of the line of scrimmage marker. When you could've just thrown the ball away that Prescott had some great moments but still had some. What do you think in moments that I think we look back on. And so I think that's what the concerns starts concern certainly revolves around act Prescott and especially against a team like the Texans. I know you're not confident in Texan secondary, but they do have JJ watt. They do have a young cloudy who you're not super impressed by. So I'm worried personally, the Dak Prescott could cave under little pressure, right? The goal for the Texans defense, no matter what is to stop the the best you can stop the which is still, you know. Having a good game against him, keeping him under one hundred yards. It's a very high bar. But I think the issue is going to be like, like you're saying, it's it's what Dak and those receivers can do. And he has very weak receivers. And you know, I have been ragging on the Texans a lot where the Texans are gonna shine in comparison. It's going to be the offense. Obviously, they're gonna be weaker at running back and off into line. But I think the Shawn Watson is substantially better. And I think the receivers are as well. Dak Prescott if we can make him and force him to be the one to win the game for the Cowboys. That's when the Texans have a shot at actually winning and land in Collins, parking cars in the garage. I don't even know what you're referring to. The Cowboys played the giants, Landon Collins. Remember we talked about this, you know, he said, oh, we gotta make beat us. And that became like the right line. It was. It was it was obvious and that was why it was silly that it blew up, but it was a lot of fun. So to talk about right. And I think the, you know, when you have JJ watt, David cloudy on the same line attacking the quarterback, like there's a lot of impact you can make and it's easy when you have guys, they're that talented going at the same time at full health. I mean combined, they had five sacks last week. I don't see doing well. It's if he's putting the situation where he has to go out and win the game for you guys. I think the Texans will win. It's just really, it's gonna come down to how well z can run the ball, and that's all that's it sounds so simplistic and trivial. That's really all the Texans can hope for is stopping Zeke. And if you can do that, you've got your shot. You're well on the record in my on the record. I mean, our text message history. With saying and believing that the Cowboys should have drafted Jalen Ramsey as opposed to. Week, and obviously this tremendous player and provides a tremendous side of what the Cowboys can do. Ofensive Lii. And as you mentioned, he is the guy that you have to stop if you want to beat them. What are your thoughts on this? Because you know, I think people misunderstand. It's a allow when I say it's a bit arrogant to sort of have that MO to sort of have this, the guy to stop Zeke. Because if they do guess what you're going to lose. And you have every right to beer. Again, I feel if you can, if you can go into Houston on Sunday night and if everybody that's involved with the Houston Texans says, okay, it's our main objective. Our primary objective we're gonna stop the and if you can beat them anyway, then yeah, Pounder chest arrogant be whatever you want. It's just a really. I don't wanna say fine line to walk, but it's a really limited, you know, tunnel vision, sort of frame to try to dance in. You know what I mean? Well, I'll expand a little bit. I think our secondary is very weak right now they've been playing poorly, but they've been underachieving. So I think with an average secondary or an average performance from your secondary. You can stack the box to stop Zeke and you can with Dallas receivers, you can easily try to contain them with simple man coverage, only maybe to safety or a single high safety. You don't have to worry too much unless you make a boneheaded play like the Cowboys benefited from earlier this year against the giants will take on Austin going for a six yard touchdown. When there's two members of the giant secondary making awful plays. Unless something like that happens, I feel like they're fairly easy to contain and they're fairly simplistic with how they call their offense. So it's really going to be just a smash melt game z. and if we can stop them from succeeding in that regard, and they're forced to pass such a situation when they're playing from behind and they have to pass. I think we'll be fine. I in your passing game. My biggest worry is still Zeke on screens and out rouse from your running backs. I go, hey, go ahead. I'll just say I'm not scared of or his receivers. I mean, you think about this deck Prescott this season against the Panthers, threw the ball twenty nine times against the giants. The first one of the season threw the ball twenty five times against the Seahawks the ball thirty four times and against the lions, their second one through the ball twenty seven times. So his to lower pass attempts. If you wanna just qualify that way are wins for the Cowboys. I mean, people talk about people verbalize different ways. The Cowboys are undefeated when Zeke as the ball twenty five times or whatever the truth of the matter is what you're saying. It's an obvious recipe. Keep the ball in. Zeke's belly. Don't let that throw it a whole lot and you're probably gonna come out on top. That's the formula to success. Is there anybody in anybody on the Cowboys offense, save frizzy that you're using the word scared, but that the you're like nervous about, you know, maybe not scared, but like that. If you were walking around your house, you would just turn the lights on. You know what I mean? Just to feel. A little bit safer just just mildly nervous. There's not a single person that scares me. I mean, you've got some great lineman, but when you're going into a game like this, you're not thinking, oh, you know that left tackle. He really inspires fear in terms of playmakers, no, there's on a single person in that kind of points finger at the Cowboys front office for not replacing your Jason Whitten's and does Bryant's in the off-season. No, I agree. And I'll say that on the other side of things, you know, the Andre Hopkins will fuller KiKi toy. I mean, you know, what was it? Most receptions in debut since the merger, something like that. That was his right KiKi. Cutie had the most receptions of any player an NFL history since the merger. And he had eleven, I believe on fifteen or sixteen targets. How much do you like San? Cutie. Not as much as you'd think because you know, you also want like the kind of strong name too. When you're talking about a weapon and Cutie, it's spelled weird, but it's pronounced like Cutie, Cutie pie. Exactly. Fear inspiring or anything. I don't think I told you this. There's a, there's a draft prospect for the two thousand nine hundred NFL draft. His name is rock sin. That's an awesome name. You know what I mean? Like that's a. That's a sweet name. You wanna name like that. Play football. You know what I mean? Yeah. And I mean great player, but also the last name Whitney mercilus for the Texans mercilus. That's that's an awesome sounding name. I'm a little worn out on the merciless thing. It's it's been a long time. It's been too long cloudy. Good name to SOS what I mean? Those are some good niche too strong name, but it's not in fear. Inspiring. A merciless is I don't think that mercilus doesn't inspire fear me. I mean, it's all better than you know, like a ha ha Clinton Dix that's true. That's a good point. Yeah. So okay, so we're both in agreement to Cowboys. Offense is gonna struggle with the exception of we're both in agreement at the Cowboys defense is probably the better unit on this team on this field. I should say, let's let's rank them this way. Let's rank them. You've got cobbles oftens Texans offense, Cowboys defense, Texas, Texas defense, excuse me. How would you rank those four out start? I'll say from top to bottom, I'd Cowboys defense is the best unit in this game. Number two, probably say Texans. Off potential. Go Texans offense. Then I'd go Texans defense and Cowboys offense. I think it's easy to say Texans offense over the Texans defense right now. They've been playing very poorly throughout the season. I mean, they made ally manning look like Peyton Manning out there two weeks ago. So, yeah, you like that analysis really clever. Really clever only I could think only I could think to compare ally to pay manning, right? I mean, that's why you have me on Goodwin. But yeah, I think the the Texans defense has been extremely inconsistent has given a big plays. They haven't been coming out how we hope they would, especially with a healthy watt in a healthy cloudy. In theory, playing together at the same time, they're they're definitely underperforming. So I'd go slightly different. I'd say, Cowboys defenses the best unit, then Texans offense. And there's a big gap between those two. Then I'm gonna go with the Cowboys offense and then the Texans ethan's. That's how poorly I think they've been doing. Wow. That's interesting. That's that's I think a lot of Cowboys disagree with you before we get into our game predictions. Last thing I want to touch on and I'm planning on writing about this at some point as sort of a revisit of sorts. I know this is going to bother you all right now to to give sort of a peek behind the curtain at Jimmy nice friendship earlier this week leading up to this game. I sent Jimmy the video of Shawn Watson saying that he wanted to be drafted by the Cowboys in the lead up to the two thousand seventeen NFL draft. When this extra to get him, you were not fond of that text. Jimmy, I'll just say, and I remember when this happened, you were not fond of it happening. You were quite miffed when the one, the only you're the one, the only as well, but tyrant. Matthew, the Honey badger. When he quote tweeted Ben Rogers from one through the fan in Dallas. And he said no one in the Dallas secondary is better than me on my off day Ella mayo after two knee injuries l.. James, he dropped to Ella Mae owes two. I mean, that's how you know he's serious. Right? So I mean, and cave on Frazier, join Lewis, a bunch of Cowboys, secondary players. They all had like a tweet is like bulletin board material noted, whatever this and that. So this is, I mean, it's not like the Cowboys. Secondary plays against Honey badger in a game like this, but that is something that happened. That is something that was said and tyrant did delete the tweet, which is a move that you can debate for whatever reason. But the point is, is that I think that the Honey badger certainly played for the Texans. I think you'd agree there, but I think I think that's an interesting subplot it's gonna say, so it would be an interesting subplot if both of these teams coach better, I don't think the Cowboys are going to come up with a scheme to really attack tire and Matthew and maybe embarrass him or anything like that. Like that's the upsetting part about this matchup is going into the season. There's a reason that the Cowboys in Texas, we're going to be such a hyped up game. You had a lot of hope for them. But unfortunately, it's been kind of same old same old. I don't think Dak Prescott throwing downfield and challenging these corners and entire in Matthew. I don't see that happening. All right. All right. I mean, that's just how they are like, okay, maybe we'll have Zeke run over Tyronn Matthew or something. That's it. That's the best you can hope for commit to us. James give us something to Twitter promise. You went on Twitter at the Jimmy Johns. If Zeke will call it stiff arms or runs over or hurdles, the Honey badger, you will do what. Oh, man, putting on the sponsor. The bad thing is it's not like that. So unexpected or crazy. James answer the question. You know, I'll frown for a few seconds. I'll be sad. I'll promise you that. I'm not going to get anything tattooed on me if that's what you're looking for. I wasn't looking for that. I was looking for like, you know, I'll tweet something with an emoji. Some some commitment. You know, that's all I'm looking for some level of commitment. I will at tyrant Matthew, and I will just put the poop emoji. Okay, that's fine. I wanted. That's all I grant and that'll be the least aggressive thing I during the game, probably. That's true. That's true. You are gonna wanna follow Jimmy for this game because when the Cowboys thrashed the Texans, he's going to be that he's going to being so James. Hi, Jimmy. Jay bomb. Let's get into predictions. All right. Now I typically do my predictions. I do bold predictions on the Saturday before a game on. I typically score predictions right around then it should be noted that we have a tool at espionage in called fan pulse that literally does that measures the pulse of all fans across all thirty two NFL teams. And and we pull each fan base every week and we asked them, okay, you know, how confident are you and your team just kind of questions like that. And we also ask each team to predict each fan base to give their prediction in terms of, okay, you think your team is going to win by our lose by how many points this week. Now the Houston. Texans fans in week one predicted a win that was wrong and we to predicted a win that was wrong in week. Three created a win that was wrong in week. Four Texans fans had finally had enough this what we're gonna lose to the colts by four. And in fact, the Texans one. So the Texans. Fan. Pulse record is Owen four. Meanwhile, the Cowboys fan base also, similarly predicted wins for the first three games of the season. And then finally said, you know what? Savas Cabral I've had enough and predicted a loss of the lions and they were wrong as well. But they did correctly predict a win over the giants. So Cowboys fan, pulses one in three. Texans is Owen four on the season that being said, Cowboys fans believe here as we enter this game that the Cowboys are going to win by four and the Texans think that they're going to win by two. So what's your kind of temperature here? What do you feel? How do you? How do you see this? Do you think it's a win loss? I mean how many what you got going on? It'd be a score. I'll go in and pick the Cowboys to win maybe by like three or four points side with the Cowboys fans in that regard. I think it's going to be maybe like a twenty four twenty one kind of game. One of those touchdowns being from the Cowboys defense helps put them over the edge and I'm predicting still very weak game by Dak Prescott. But I think he gets going Texans defense continues to disappoint and underperform, and. Yeah, I gotta side with the Cowboys. Wow. Okay. So you've got Cowboys twenty four twenty one. So this Cowboys by three. That's how many points Cowboys won by when these two teams met last. I'll say Cowboys by four. I'll go with fan polls. I'll say Cowboys by four. I'll say they win twenty four twenty. That's kind of what it feels like to be twenty four twenty maybe twenty three twenty. I could see twenty three seventeen twenty three sixteen something like that. So so I certainly side with you. I think we both think Cowboys win this coming. But you mentioned the over under one hundred eighty five and a half total yards from scrimmage. Frazee. Two hundred forty here. It's a big number of the two hundred forty last. I mean, I think it's safe as soon as he gets between a buck twenty bucks thirty on the ground since just kind of like what you think is gonna do through the air. So I'm gonna go under just because that number is so high. I can definitely see him getting up to that one sixty type rain. I was a little in the moment I was in the moment. Let's reset. It's one sixty five and a half over under. It'll be. Under, and that's optimistic and me. But one thing I can tell you is if you guys are running the ball with Zeke and you're running on the side where JJ watt is that is when you will have the most success the way JJ watt game plans in the way he plays. And I guess his movements on the field, you will always see him on. Run plays in his direction, kinda running towards the quarterback and the runningback slips right underneath them. By kind of by design when it's the players, good as JJ. He can still maybe make the play and stop the running back behind the line of scrimmage. But because he does that he's able to get the sack said he does, but it also makes them a weakness in the run game. So if the Cowboys are smart, they're going to run on JD Awad side of the yield. One a statement end, if they're smart, which is a big if if the Cowboys are smart and they do that, and then I think it'll be the over for Zeke on yards and the win you go, James look at you. Go final question before I get you out of here, will we see a Dak Prescott spin on JJ watt. God, I hope not. Oh, man. I mean it was a great spin by Romo. I think that was the game winning touchdown if I'm not mistaken or one of them that send it to overtime, something like that. It was a huge touchdown. It wasn't just the spin which looked beautiful, but the pass, it was a bullet into the end zone. I hate it. If that happens again, I'm just done. Okay. Well, you know, we'll look forward to to your tire. Matthew tweet to predictions the over under he is on Twitter at the Jimmy gel. He's not on Instagram. His Facebook is never used. He lives in Houston, so just show up, maybe you'll find him somewhere at the local water burger or despite the fact against that we both went to Texas in university canes loyalist. I know a lot of people don't know what lanes is, but, but that's all, say out. I mean, good luck this weekend. I guess. Good luck this weekend. Let's hope for an injury. Free game and exciting game. Some fun times. Some fun moments and we'll circle back. We'll get your thoughts after the game. Hopefully you're sad thoughts for the for the here, but, but between now and then you'll have a good weekend. Have a good weekend and talk Tober and do your thing, I believe in you. So thank you very much. Thanks for having me on the owners of the Cowboys. And Texans would make this a loser goes home match, just fired their coach for losing. We can't get that, but it should happen. Well, no one should feel special after this win. If you rent a little say, if you ran the NFL things would be different.

I'm your host Richard Smith along with my senior. NFL analyst. Listen Co host Chris Chavez. And we're here tonight to break down the Kansas City chiefs vers- Tennessee Titans Divisional playoff off game at Arrowhead stadium. Two to five pm tomorrow. which is Sunday Chris? How are we feeling about this game? Tell me a little little bit of your feelings towards this divisional match up because this winter go home while everything is on the line fine and you there's always some sort of risk Built into this game at this time of the season I feel pretty good about this game. He even even when you take into the fact that we lost the Texans in Arrowhead earlier in the season. It's a different environment. We're different. I feel really good about this. I'm with you on that one. I think my biggest argument about this game. And you know we'll see if chiefs kingdom agrees here is is while you had alluded to the fact that the Kansas City chiefs are a different team than they were the last time that they face the Texans axons which was that for six. I mean that was quite some time ago but seven okay week seven so we faced the week seven. The Kansas City chiefs are completely different team than we were in week seven. Here's the difference. The Tennessee titans aren't they're not. They're pretty much the same team that we faced back in week seven and I feel like that that is going to be the determining factor to this game is You know coach Reid. I feel like coach. Read is is GONNA out coach. The Houston Texans Coaching coaching staff. It just I don't I don't know I have the confidence that you have Chris. So going talking talking about the coaching the One piece on the coaching staff does have me concerned his Romeo Cornell. He is a defensive wiz and we we saw that when when he was here with Casey he can put together some great defenses. And it'll be interesting to see what he draws up for our offenses. Yeah Yeah I see. Here's my thing is I just. I don't worry about the Texans I I don't feel like the top to bottom. They have as much talent. You know within the depth chart or the the coaching aspect. I think we're we're really looking at overall how this is a good scenario for the Kansas City chiefs and I think the best thing going into this game is the chiefs have have the number one defense in the league going going into the playoffs. They definitely have the best defense in the League right now. What a better time to hone in on on the defensive offensive side ball? 'cause you you and I had talked about that before the season and now here we are at a point where we were thinking. Middle of the pack and now our defenses offensive looking like the best defense in the league. So how's that going to resonate to you know tomorrow's game I think that's GonNa be what really shuts down the Texans Jackson's of earlier in the played them. We couldn't stop them. They ended up running. Eighty eighty one off of planes against us. Although Watson had two turnovers he threw turn assumptions. They still had eighty one place against us but when we play them we still didn't have our identity yet and this is true. We were really banged up. We didn't have Chris Jones Frank Clark was still hurt. That game. as we found out a couple of weeks later Yeah and so our art defense coming in as hot as they are and even with the injury to to Jones or wherever. That's at right now. Oh We are in much hotter than we should absolutely shut down their offense. There's there's going to be some challenges we're going to give up some plays John Jay Hopkins Guaranteed. He's going to have a lot of both thrown his way. He's GonNa get his catches but we just have to limit the yards after catching and control the the run game especially against the taxes. Yes there's I mean. I say that the weapons obviously have weapons but they just don't stack up against the chiefs depth chart but I was speaking of the depth chart here. I WanNa talk about the injury report because you had mentioned you know Chris Jones and and such and so. Let's talk about this. Because Morris Claiborne Claiborne is out Chavez Kelsey is questionable And Chris Jones is questionable. But do you really see Kelsey or Jones. Not No I. I think Kelsey should be good to go I don't think there's going to necessarily keep him out of the game. It might limit limit. 'em A little bit Chris Johns Ropley going to give it a go but the question I have is will he be able to calling the game start but if the entry acts up and affects him he'll probably won't come back out the second or third series so you had asked me a question before we had went on air here About these two and I want to go and ask that question again And the you know we can give our feedback about that. So my question to you was which of these two players Kelsey or Jones. Do you feel as most important for the chiefs to get a victory tomorrow And I firmly stand with this and I say Chavez Kelsey because he's the anchor the offense Which Christie would explained you know? He's spreads he makes it he makes it able to spread our receivers out Out and the vertical and it's Without him you know. There's there's really there's really no death behind him and like you were saying with Chris. Jones is there is depth within the defensive line to where if he couldn't go or he only played part of this playoff game. You know I think we would be all right more so without Chris Jones but go ahead and elaborate on your end. Yeah so Like you were just touching on with with the depth Our second tight end is blake. Bill who absolutely Louis has not lifted up or been impressive at all this season whereas on D. Line. You've got Nadi you've you've got saunders you've got Williams just came back you've got panel. Who has been fantastic in the run game who we also didn't have have when we played the Texans and it's we've got really good depth on the D. Line K pass can step inside and plea deal nose nose tackle or D.? Tackle if we need to. We've got a great rotation there. Chris Johns while he is an elite player we would love to see him on the field and into achieve uniform for a long time. It isn't that we have to win the game tomorrow. Although absolutely absolutely would help so Chris Jones if you can get out there and you can help it. Hey Go ahead and play in game. We'd really appreciate that because you might be the best player at your position in the League So you know we've touched base on the chiefs and Chow chows Kelsey. ING IN CRISTIANOS has been questionable. Moore's clayborn out which I really don't feel is is great especially with the loss of of Thornhill We need as much depth. We can get you know in the defensive backfield but I don't think that claiborne is GonNa Affect Us too much either. I feel like we're going to get to the quarterback order back before the quarterback can get the ball out of his hand and with that being said. Let's talk about the Texans are I mean. I'm sorry yeah the the Texans injury report because it's quite lengthy and Chris do have pulled up. Okay so we we have safety. Jalil die with a knee he is out Jordan Atkins is out with a hamstring defensive. Back Kion crossing is questionable with a hamstring wide receiver will floor is questionable. The Groin cornerback Jonathan Joseph is questionable hamstring wide receiver Kenny stills questionable with a knee tight end. Darren fells questionable with a hip. And then there's a number of other players as well Jacob Martin with an illness Aj more junior safety and other. He has a hip injury. Jj Watt is on the shoulder offensive. Tackle Chris Clark with a concussion. Their their injury list is extremely lengthy. Yeah then that was kind of expected because they have a game last week. They're coming in really banged up and even talked about that too. Yeah and I mean obviously probably the biggest name on there is going to be. Jj Watt but as we saw last week that didn't stop him right Usally missile able to to step in and make some really good players. Get some pressure affect the game. Get a sack When we played them earlier in the the season and we were able to hold him to only two tackles note no sacks and we have one one hit on and so so? I expect that we should be able to control him. Like we did in this game and a of Keep him from affecting our pass game unless somehow cornell is able to up a new way to get him at At mahomes I don't see it happening. I think that we were able to control him and everybody else in there is just going to affect their ability to to what they can do Daran fills you. Is there a big yard gainer in the receiving Game Jordans Takins. They're back a tight end. He came in and he had three catches for thirty nine yards. So right there. That's to both are titans house nine catches So if they're if they're being up that will make it easier for us to potentially guard them and keep them from making game-breaking breaking place yes and also they're number two and number three receivers are questionable so the tight end number two and three receiver all could have limited playing time also as you mentioned tied in Jordan Atkins is out. There's there's a lot of injuries. There's a lot of ways that the Kansas City chiefs could take advantage of the scenario and the surely falls right into the game. Plan that the chiefs she's will will have especially their first game without thornhill. As long as the chiefs do not let Carlos Hyde Bite them. In the tail the chiefs will will be smooth sailing here and my mind and Touching on that wing played. Played us. he this was the first time the entire season having a hundred yard game. He attuned six carries one hundred sixteen yards and one touchdown he was. He was definitely the reason that when he let me change that he's not the reason that we lost but he was definitely a huge factor in why we lost the game and I would like to shut him down on. This is one of those games where Carlos high needs to be stopped John. De'andre Hopkins under Shawn Watson. That's a big enough three headed monster to beat some other teams here in the League. But it's just that's not firepower for the chiefs especially coming off the bye week and Andy Reid. Big Red is twenty two and four after bye week including the play offs and look. I look for that to continue. I'm sure you do as well. The big question is I wonder what spags record is coming off the bye week with all of that time for him to prepare for one team. I guarantee you that the SPAGS hasn't tricks up his sleeve as well and also given the fact that he's scenery the Texans once already this season we we basically know know what to expect from these guys. Yes and I look for. This is a scenario which we'll talk about a little bit later on. I'm going to bring it up right now. How I do want to talk about the chiefs? Home winning percentage since two thousand and three at seventy lead seven thirty two is winning percentage at home since two thousand and three that near tops the league and and I figure that that's obviously obviously Arrowhead Stadium Home Field advantage and as that going to be another scenario that we can ride on here in this divisional playoff game. I believe you know. Every seat will be packed in that house. And I hope to not see Texans Fan. What do you think Chris Homefield advantage here? How much does that affect this game? Well you're touching on the home field advantage let me throw a couple more stats. So this the Texans Dr Seventeenth on the road in points allowed with nearly twenty four a game. They're last on the road in yards allowed as one of only two teams allowing four four hundred or more yards also last on the road yards per play an line of rude in third down conversions as well that is throw throw in that we've been fantastic on third and pretty much any yardage You know going to defense. It'll certain fifty and we'll still have a chance to get that first down against these guys I'll tell you what those are those are some diminishing stats for you. Know a Houston Texans fan or or the team itself to be going into Arrowhead playoff game and a more hostile environment with weather. The this is not going to be a fun game for the Texans especially a Texas team a dome team come into the weather and the last thing I want to throw out you is the Texans red zone percentage. They rank last in the League on on the season allowing touchdowns on seventy one one percent of opponents trips into the rhythm but burned over the last three games of the season they're allowing allowing eighty six percent conversion in the Renzo. That's I mean. That's darn near automatic. You get a touchdown. When you get a touchdown touchdown anybody WHO's driving down the field come on in? We're giving away touchdowns they can keep it up because if mahomes gets cut loose like I think he will this last season. We threw for fifty touchdowns. I really think he's cut loose like that in the playoffs. But when it happens there's GonNa be a lot of fun to watch and the start of it is tomorrow at two. Oh five and I can't wait. Let's talk about the weather a little bit here because it has been snowing in Kansas City for the last couple of days. Now the snow will stop. We'll have partly cloudy weather thirty eight degrees at kickoff. But it's it's still gonNA be cold temperatures I want. I don't want to say frigid cold enough to really make an impact on a Houston Texans team name and we all heard and have seen Patrick mahomes talk about how you know. I'm a snow game guy and I can't. I can't argue with him. He's still snaps the ball. You still zips it no matter what whether so Chris. What do you think the weather is going to? How's that going to impact this playoff the game? I think the coal is definitely going to affect Watson I won't recall a time that he's ever played in significant -nificant weather But I think would also is could could affect the game will be the wind If the wind is strong enough that could affect are passing game and make it a run game if it becomes a run game versus run game. You know I think that we have the advantage And I'll explain plane. Why in a little bit but Go ahead and explain why now so The the reason. Why is that Our our defensive line has been much better ever since we brought in a player. midseason Mike Panel at defensive tap. And when he's been in the Games we shut down but we have controlled the run games and not giving up as big of yards per game in the run game as we had earlier on in the season. We faced The Texans again. He was out out against Tennessee. They around for like a hundred nine hundred and maybe Georgia jar against us and ever since he's been in an he's helped to control that that that run game I'll tell also Looking at when we face the Texans they saw they saw the Shawn McCoy. Carry the ball. Eight times for forty four yards Damian Williams one carry the Anthony Thomas who's no longer with the tone one Kerry now as we ran the ball eleven times against them. They don't know what we can do in the run game if we can. If if Damian Williams can get going in this game it's GonNa be a long day for the Houston Texans and is already going to be a long dame game. Oh you open that running game up that opens up the passing game even more. The passing game opens up. Then we have more on their heels and we hit him with the play action passes over with all day. And it's it's GonNa be fun to to mix it up. I really hope that this chiefs running game shows up in the play offs and just gives us a little bit of pulse. Because if they can that's going to elevate us over the top and will probably put a lot of worries to rest for chiefs fans And not that. I'm worried but that would be the icing on the cake. And and let's go and talk about this. Let's get into this. Do you think Andy Reid as GONNA cut Patrick mahomes loose like he did last season. With that fifty touchdown five thousand yard run. Because I'm sure everybody sees that he is played differently. This season more conservative and kept the defense off the field. Longer Chris. What's your take you do you see? Andy Regis San go out there. Yeah I think Early on in the game yes and then once we get a I'll say three position lead I think that he shuts mahomes down As far as that style of offense and we run the ball and run the clock and control. Fool the rest of the game and force us to have to take chances That they don't want to and allow us to tee the off on on Watson because he's been hit ninety three times this season and sacked forty four times. This ear has beat up and we can we have the guys to add to it. Yeah and if if we can force him to have to drop back and take more the punishment that works in our favor if we have a six sack game out of the chiefs defense even three or four I I feel like we can coast across the finish line with an astounding victory. And I don't WanNa say that nobody saw coming but the chiefs could very well run away way with this. If the defensive defensive line and the secondary does their jobs but really it's GonNa take all levels because the running game too. So it's just the chiefs chiefs continuing what they've been doing for the last five to six weeks on the defensive side of the ball and then the other nothing to also take into consideration that we were playing Texans earlier in the season. We didn't have the landlord. We have the honey badger. The defense wasn't wasn't set up to the way that we can use him as the landlord. Now face for member when they cross cross that last scrimmage and he's GonNa be putting punishment on those running backs he's GonNa controlling that run game are are cornerbacks. They've been stepping up and they've been contributing contributing in the run game as well Very quietly but if you I mean the rest of the League hasn't seen any of the chiefs fans who have watched these games. They seem trevor ward drilling and Step up and make tackles and against the run game and so we're I think that we are able to Keep the run game from getting any big runs. Came under five yards. Four hundred four yards per carry and we shut it down. Well I'll tell you this. I have no question or no doubt in my mind about the chiefs defense or truly the chiefs offense. The the only question that I have and this will be standing through the rest of the playoffs and I think this should be a question or a question. Mark and the exclamation point as to where the chiefs stand as far as talent. The Kansas City chiefs are the worst rushing. Shing offense left in the playoffs by a long shot. And so that is probably the only I I would say. Deterring factor You know against the chiefs that would be on anyone's radar is the chiefs. Do not have a running offense. But like I said if Damian Williams just find that spark this is your time Damian you did it last season you did it last season. And that's why you're still here so Dana do your job at least put up seventy. Can we get seventy five sixty five. I'd be happy with sixty five rushing yards daming wounds that would secure a win for the chiefs. Five yards a touchdown maybe even to yes. I mean in. That's not too much to ask for out of the premier running back for the Kansas City chiefs before we get into predictions. What's going on in this San Francisco Minnesota game? Do you have the score in front of you. It just ended and San Fran one twenty seven to ten good deal so Chris. Let's talk about predictions on this game. I'm GonNa let you. I'm GonNa let you say the predictions because I had a bold prediction. A bold prediction would go ahead. Chris Locate so All Day long of than going back and forth Audubon my prediction and where I was going to go is GonNa go Kansas City on this one but right now I'm really feeling Casey thirty five Houston fourteen. I wasn't talking about that game. But what will. But they're so thirty five. I was talking about the predictions from the the San Francisco Minnesota game because I had made a pretty bleak for sorry I going back to my man So on that one I am a fan was going to win by four and that one. Yes and that's why I said that. I had made a very bold prediction very bold prediction and Chris. What was that predict? You're certainly a tax. You said the San Fran was gonNA win by seventeen. and Lo and behold Lo and behold San Francisco pulled it out by seventeen but that is just a testament to kirk cousins being hot hot and cold throughout his career and a testament to the right tackle being until the entire game. So let's all right. We'll talk about predictions for the chiefs game breath. I didn't quite hear what you said. What was your prediction for tomorrow's game We own thirty thirty five to fourteen thirty five to fourteen eighteen. Kansas City really liked that one that makes a lot of sense. It sounds just now I think usually I go higher. I'm I'M GONNA go a little bit lower. I think is going to be thirty one to seventeen Kansas City. This is Arrowhead game this compassionate mahomes versus Shawn Watson and the playoffs ultimately to move onto the AFC championship game. This is a huge huge huge game for the chiefs and ultimate lead the start of this dynasty. That you know the chiefs one wants to go on. We've been talking and talking and talking. What about this and is put up? Shut up and I'm with you. I'm saying thirty. One seventeen is going to be a great game but I think the I think the score might it'd be might look a little bit closer than the game actually was towards the end so yeah Chris. I'm with you. Is there anything else. You'd like to add ad here because this is playoff time. I mean if you want hype us up. Let's go Chris. This is your chance. This is play offs tomorrow to Arrowhead. Stadium Chiefs Texans. Okay so what. They want throughout their news for tonight's game. I'm rooting for Baltimore. I WanNa see them again because as any competitive you want to play the best in beat the best best and you know what wild all Tennessee I was. It would be a great revenge game for us and I would love to beat up on and control. Derrick Henry like nobody else has this season I think that we need to be both were ravens in control the narrative that the entire league has about this Lamar Jackson Guy. Don't get me wrong. I think he's a great great quarterback but his style of of quarterbacking is very different than Patrick. mahomes movie played him. Earlier this season we controlled him and basically shut him down for three three quarters. It really was an all around great defensive game that should have woke the league up to the potential of our defense but nobody opened their eyes until now. But it's a little bit too late wouldn't you say what do you say it's a little too late. Yeah there's GonNa be. A lot of people were backtracking and traffic. Oh look how great the Chiesa defenses. You and I've seen it all season long and said we're GONNA see flashes here and there but it's GonNa take time for them to come together at. Hey we and how about this. I want to say that even the prediction that we had which was on key. This defense has far exceeded the level that we even thought that would happen and we had we had the even tossed around the idea of top five defense but nobody even taught that we'd be the best defense going into the playoffs. So huge feet cassidy is. It's a Huge Testament to the coaching staff. To to the talent that we have on the team the talent that we brought in not just the talent physical talent but the mental talent how smart these players were to put the whole thing together By midseason when we came out of that or would we played Denver. Are we completely turned things around. And it's been nonstop percents and it really has and and I will say the Shawn Watson Patrick Mahomes matchup. There's only one the lion between the two and that's our boy Patrick Mahomes and and it's not. It's not even a comparison to Shawn Watson. Yes he's great is he. A franchise quarterback. Yes what I've been disappointed to have him on the chiefs chiefs. No but if Patrick Mahomes is playing somewhere else and Shawn Watson was our quarterback I would be saying right now boy. I wish we would've went after that. That kid Patrick uh-huh homes so the confidence with our quarterback giving it putting into his hands against Shawn Watson all day all day. I don't think think that we have anything to worry about their Chris. Is there anything else because game time has come up here and Gosh even twenty four hours and this is like you said win or go home. Divisional Playoffs Kansas City. It's coming up. It's coming up. Chris Gavin throughout there is a little bit of physics. Yeah some in cold weather Air Molecules are tighter together and so sound will travel travel farther and so if we get as loud as we can Dan. I think we ended up. Set could set a another sound record and I think it gets one forty five one fifty on the dust bowl levels. It's going to be loud and we need to get out and wherever you're at in and she's kingdom across this country gametime yelling in your living room. The road on the parking lot in the stadium on the sidelines get loud because the chiefs moved. You and I wanted to add to that and say Kansas City. I know that the chiefs franchise added new seats into that stadium but that does not mean do not bang on the back of him as hard as you can. It's morning here all of you being on those seats and that's awesome little bit of science there Chris and yeah I'll use it to our advantage. Here let's death in everybody in the stadium are chiefs can handle it because you know that energy is projected towards the chiefs projected against The Texans they feel in a different way and so let's get after them. Let's get him on the field. Let's get after them in the stands and less come out there with the victory victory because we have unfinished business here in Kansas City Patrick mahomes set it is south and look. It's put her shut up Gametime Kansas City. There's no more talking talking. This is it. This is the pre-game show as soon as we're off air here. There's nothing in between this and game time so it's time to get excited. I don't know about y'all but I might have a hard time sleeping tonight and I will be one excited person when I wake up tomorrow morning Chris. Do you have anything else to add before I left these cheese fans get on with their Saturday evening warning and watch this all important.

[143] Houston Texans preview

"Every year in the NFL. It's a new team as far as goals go. We have one putting the fucker in offender. Welcome to the buccaneers observer. podcast is this Ralph Phillips. I'm Ali Bay. December nineteenth two thousand nineteen. The season is is almost over and so two more games got Houston Texans coming up Saturday at one PM National Game. We are the only game on at one and it's got playoff implications not for us of course but for the Texans it does they haven't clinched third-division T.. Tennessee one game behind them and they play next week so if they lose today they'll be tied with the attack sends and Texans Win. I mean the titans and the titans win this week and we beat the Texans they they lose that we tied for top of the division and then they go and play next week and that'll design the division slow it still very much up in the air and even if they don't be the titans next week they're still some hope I think for a wildcard spot so the AFC is far from settled. And the Texans are really need a win this game games next week but I I hope so. Yeah tells Philadelphia playing against each other next week now that makes me so mad like why can't we end division like that will think we are going to be after this year. Problem the lay the panthers. The Falcons are going to go through a whole rebuild. Think so we'll see we'll be watching from the sidelines view from the Texans. Let's go okay. As I said they are currently nine and six so here are their opponents for the season. They've won against Jacksonville twice. The chargers Atlanta Kansas City. Oakland New England Indianapolis once and the Titans and they lost to New Orleans Carolina Indianapolis Baltimore and Denver so they lost a good teams and they beat bad teams teams and some good teams. I mean they'd be New England so the city so nothing to shake a stick out the Texans became a franchise in two thousand two and since they're in the AFC. We don't really see them a whole lot. We have matched up against them. Four Times total and we've beaten them once was making it twice. Yeah exactly I agree. Of course we'll be seen Vernon Hargreaves again and he is not a starter for them he gets about forty. He had forty ninety nine percents of the snaps against Tennessee. Playing the nickel. Okay so we'll certainly see a little bit of him. But thank you and I know we game where we wanting where somebody fell. And Ralph said that's Barton and I can tell by his flopping he doesn't have this like Superman died and then he like fly. Yeah his arms going and he makes it look like he's putting forth effort right okay. Let's go through where we rank and where we compare with them scoring offense we are third and and they are tenth they put up twenty four point four points again. They're total offense is seventh and ours is third. We're who passing off as we're first with first baby and the Texans are Levin's which that kind of surprises me that they're not hire with deandre. Hopkins Awesome Will Fuller Willfuller. Their Rushie are rushing offense. We're tied for twenty seven. They are seven. It went to run a ball. Yeah well they're not GONNA do that against us. They put up one hundred thirty point nine yards per game. I was looking are rush. Defense we are the best in the league by far right right now we give up seventy three point three yards per game. The second best is the jets at eighty. Eight point eight yards per game. We've only given up a thousand twenty six yards to fourteen games. The jets have given up twelve hundred and forty three sal and they've given up two hundred more yards than us two hundred twenty three exact exact the exact. That's our closest opponent. Yeah but we gotTA watch out with Houston because they got caught us. They like to run the ball a lot really because if I had him in fantasy and he was never that reliable. No but it's they've got Duke Johnson to and they've got a quarterback's name Shawn Watson. Finish on Watson. He runs scrambler. We have got to contain him. They do a lot of read option to not a lot but they do read option. That's not that'd be an issue with us because we are such a disciplined unit on our defensive line. We just do not fall for stuff like that and check Barrett is actually fantastic again. If you watch one video the video I did actually kind of broke down a read option play and how he watched the ball the whole time. It was really really good stuff. Is that the the one where they fumbled it. I remember that one. We are fourth in first downs per game and the Texans are fist. So we're pretty even when they're this little surprises me on our third down percentage were thirteen. Ruler Yeah we get forty one point. Seven percent of our third downs announce now we take good at third day. I don so two and the Texans are four in that stat so pretty good in sacks per pass attempt Aloun. We are twenty-first which I think is better. I think a few weeks ago when we looked at these stats. We were like allowing eight per cent. And now we're down to seven point seven one percent so we've improved that metric. They are twenty four so we're twenty verse Twenty Bores Pretty. Even their red zone touchdown presented. We are AIDS and they are tied for fifth in the Red Zone. I would hope so with Deandre Hopkins scoring scoring defense. which is the amount of points defense gives up per game? We are tied for thirtieth at Twenty eight point. Four points per name. Their defense is nineteen so they allow twenty three point. Six points per game moved up. We were last fence for improved. Internal defense were ranked fifteenth. They are ranked twenty eight yards per game yards per game. PASSING DEFENSE WERE THIRTY S. They are twenty eight not much better than we moved up. And Patterson defense to we were last right. Yeah in rushing defense we are I I and they are nineteenth. But I don't think that's really gonNA matter because we're not focused on the run as much. We might be a little bit so that's true losing all our receiver I e first downs allowed per game. We Are Seventeenth and they are twenty fifth third. Down percentage allowed. We are fifth fifth. That's good yeah and thirty. Four point four percent of third downs we allow and they are a thirty second so dead last maybe we are. Offense can get his average sacks per pass attempt we are twenty fourth and they are twenty eight and then red zone touchdown percent allowed where sixteenth and they are thirty second so if we get into the zone were for out into the red zone. Where probably I'm going to make? It turn ever are tied for twenty seventh and they are tied for seventeenth. Negative eight turnover margin. They have a negative too. So so statistically you know their defense is pretty vulnerable. It seems like they're secondary. Yeah what game where we are. We were watching Denver Inver the Denver game and their tight ends. Just ate the Texans alive. I would love to see. This is the game. I want to see us. Utilize laws are tight. End Get all three of our good tight ends out there now. Tina Hanson's not playing. Oh He's not now get our toogood. I'm good to get them involved in the game. Yeah Tenor Selena concussion protocol. We got a lot of guys out injury bug hit does at the end of the season. Well you know if it's GonNa hit you. This is about the time to do it especially once. You're out of the playoffs so we had to make some roster moves because of all these injuries so let me go through room real quick. We signed Spencer still to the active roster from the practice squad. We signed defensive. Back her Miller to the practice squad took Spencer response. Mike Evans went on. I R Jordan Whitehead went on I. Are we signed tight. End Cody Macelroy to the active roster from the practice squad and then we also signed wide. Receiver Jaden Mickens to the practice squad. So that was just in the last two days we've made all those is moves. Wow and of course. I think it was Monday. We signed Sierra Grayson Receiver Shiro Zero. That's not having joined wider. Hi De because like I said Man I got brings a lot of energy to this football team. He his stats aren't the best in the world. But he brings that immeasurable Ze. Yeah he's just got so much energy and he's out there pumping everybody up and somebody makes a play. He's over there bouncing around and congratulate. You need that kind of energy on the team. And he's so oh aggressive to and that's what I noticed when we watch. The Denver game is that they weren't as beating the crap out of Texas. They were very physically. Yeah Yeah we need to be physical because they do they just beat the mess out of the tension and they ran the score off. It was like thirty four to three or something and the Texans ended up coming back but the score ended I. I can't remember the scores. Like thirty to twenty four somewhere around there and thirty four twenty four hundred. Wasn't that close. But I mean they were able to score orsha right exactly. It was the Texans plane from behind the whole second half trying to catch up. They ran on a clock without Jordan white headed ended the game. It's going to be a little bit more difficult for us. We do lead the League in passes defense. I have stats on the top five. You've defensive backs. In for completion percent it's Ernest. The force incompletion percentage and guess who tops that that list by like a long margin wide margin Mel Deane Forces incompletions on thirty two point six percent. That's it's incredible. I know but this is pro football. Focus that you've got these stamps from take it with a grain of salt. Well I'll take it though. Yeah Carl today was his fourth phony. It's twenty one point one percent and he popped up on the injury report today with an ankle injury that he sustained in practice and it's questionable. Yeah we'd lead. The League in passes defended with eighty three the next closest the Patriots with eighty one. Carlton Davis Has Eighteen with twelve game started. Jamal Deen has sixteen with only three games started wondering about that. Is it because they're trying in a pick on him because he's a rookie and they think he's doesn't have a spotting yet or whatever it's he's knocking balls now Kenny Jordan White. It has nine with fourteen game started. I think the highest on the Texans team it was in Scott Smith article. I think it was like thirteen twelve. It's their quarterback. Jonathan Joseph has twelve passes defense and he gets a lot of the snaps. I think thinking the titans game he was out there one hundred percent of the time. So he's they're starting corner and he's only got twelve passes defense. I was sixteen gene starts. That's crazy crazy young buck. It's only three more than Jordan waited. I'm not impressed with their secondary at all. Now me neither their there are your defensive line seems pretty good they run a three or four Do a lot of coverage The fifty seven Brennan Scarlet. He's pretty good. I like him outside linebacker for them. Of course you got merciless merciless. I don't care if he beat socks he's just got a bad ass so he'll be going to Donovan in Probably Donald Smith flame. He's questionable. Let's get through the injury report really. Quick though Allen is out Kris Godwin is out Antar. Hudson is out Carlton Davis as I said he was limited Thursday. He's questionable Ryan Jensen with the L.. Bell he was limited admitted Tuesday and then full participant Wednesday and Thursday so he's questionable but probably gonNA plan. Yeah Donovan I know. Is there really any question that he's not gonNA play back on the dollar. Mattie was purple Donovan Smith the Ankle and knee. He didn't participate Tuesday and then was limited Wednesday and Thursday so he's questionable. Jameson was limited Tuesday and and Wednesday with his right thumb and and the injury but a full participant on Thursdays so he's questionable and the rest of these guys show up on the injury report but they don't have an injury designation for the game so tomorrow dots and he didn't participate Tuesday. That was not injury related he. He did practice Wednesday and Thursday Matt. Gay had a right groin injury. He was limited Tuesday and Wednesday but practiced fully on Thursday Thursday Anthony Nelson with his hamstring. He's been a full participation all week day. P P with his knee injury he's been a full participant and Dan and Don mcgahn Su. He missed practice Thursday. It was not injury related. So he'll play Veterans Day Problem Veterans Day off. Yeah probably with so on the Texan side outside linebacker Jacob. Martin didn't practice all week because of a knee injury he is out. And and Benadryl mckinney inside linebacker. As a concussion. He didn't practice all week. He is out Jalil at safety. He has an Achilles injury. He was limited Tuesday. I mean didn't practice. Tuesday was limited Thursday Wednesday and Thursday so he's questionable will fuller has a hamstring injury. He was limited all week and it's questionable Carlos Hyde. I can't even read that on. I don't know what kind of injury is but he he was limited. Tuesday didn't practice Wednesday then returned in eliminate capacity on Thursday so he is questionable running back to one Jones Jones have a hamstring. He was limited all week and his questionable Brennan. Scarlet is not the guy he just said outside linebacker. He's got an Achilles an Dan shoulder injury. He was limited all week and as questionable Darren Fells Titan. He's got a hand injury. He was limited Tuesday and Wednesday and and then full participant on Thursday and then deandre Hopkins got sick on Wednesday and miss practice but Thursday he return and was a full participant. The bad person if I said Gosh Darn it. We're all thinking yeah. I mean they've got some weapons into Shawn Watson I think is really similar. Tim Jiminez Better James. He does and I think he's only got like eleven interceptions on the season. He's not similar James. Well he's got the arm. James has and the receivers to what Jake was ranked the number one quarterback. He's got the most yards crazy above quite a bit but like two hundred and fifty two hundred fifty yards Dak Prescott second to Shawn Watson Genus Seventh. I mean does Shawn Watson is GONNA have to keep up with us. I just don't see their defense effective enough against genius to throw his game off. Have Him make mistakes. And I mean they're going to have to spend the whole time chasing us point if good James shows shows up. If jekyll James shows this could be a disaster do you think he could regress. This is James as with. We're talking about here but this game in this game in particular with You know he's had to string a great games here. Last two in particular comprehend learn regressed to his mean which means throwing five interceptions fumbling a couple times. I just don't think that's going to happen. Hope it doesn't have no. Oh I think it's going to be a close game. I think it's going to be back and forth. I mean our defense could put a hurting on Johnson and that offense Dan Vernet they haven haven't faced a defensive line like ours. It'd be able to run it. They're not going to be able to do their trick. Plays the read option. We're going to contain number ten. That's I mean number four. That's going to be a a big. The thing is contained in hill. Because I think he's not GonNa have his passing opportunities. He's been getting our guys are sticking the receivers like glue. Of course course there's GonNa be some. Oh Yeah Yeah I mean. You can't completely eliminate Shamlan Center. Well Fuller the big thing with those two is tackling home after after. Catch their big yards after the catch and I don't know the statistically but just from what I've watched you know guys get the ball they're gone you don't tackle very squirrelly gotTa Watch read option with number four though. He's he's very good at that and then when he gets out outside edge. He's got a turbo boost to him. Their offensive line left guard. Seventy four Max Scharping. He's a rookie. He's not that great from what I've seen. I haven't watched all their games. I've just watched a few a little little bit of coaches and everything he should be easy pickings especially for Vida. Think Bao's is gonNA toss him around. They're going to have to put the center. You're going to have to watch Via Up against Mac Scharping. And that's GONNA leave Adama Congress sue one on one a lot so that's never good good for an offensive line Seventy seven right tackle. Chris Clarke he's not that great either. JP and both Shaq Barrett. I think are going to be able to really eat him alive. He's going to have some serious issues I think we're going to see him on the ground and don't forget about crawl nathen. He'll be there to. That's right in golden should be playing a lot again because BOA allentown right so hopefully goal so I have a good game like last week They do it seems like every game. I've seen almost a first series is almost exclusively running. You know for us because we can stuff it yeah. I don't know if they'll do that. Forgive us I mean but it seems to be their Elmo they come out running you know run five six times maybe pass it and like you said they're not gonna go anywhere are run defense is just spectacularly good. We did have trouble with backs like Derrick Henry older. W like these big slippery running backs that are really physical. It's all relative because it's not I'm not saying they were like impossible to contain but it's like the ones who are fighting for that yarn inch and harder to bring down like Chris Carson's but Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson are not those type of runners. I don't think no Duke Johnson's kind of a bowling ball. He He's good with good good pass catching and he's basically a third down back with them. I think Gotcha is going to be a good game. I agree with you. I think it's going to be close probably back and forth a bit it really. It depends on how James Wisdom placed James Wisdom plays like he has been playing here recently. We shouldn't have a problem with this game. However Davis comes out and he starts screwing up? We're really going to need our defense to step it up. It's going to be interesting to see how the wide receivers do. This is GonNa be the first time all season we haven't had both of our starters This is so great Mike Evans and thank God Godwin to start the game. Yeah and then so pyramids once all star Scottie Miller published. Now he's on. I R O is he I think so did I straight that Hornet listening to me. Listen to you what did you say. I don't even know if it was they. Don't even listen to yourself now. We didn't hold on. I gotTa look this up because I'm pretty sure might have been earlier in the week two days ago today. Josh Sir what do we do. We have what I'm saying like we sign these emergency signed. Hyman Hainan was brought up from the practice squad. So so it's GonNa be precise repairman and just watson is willing to. I'm telling you this is the perfect game name to bring out a break Jay Howard and just just playing around those two. Yeah I agree I would love to see it and essentially Ashley Howard. I don't think has really gone opportunity to have A. He's had like one game where he got some yardage but otherwise their lives. It's been he's been in there primarily blocking and they need to stop doing that. I agree it's one of the reasons why I run. Game is is not as good as it could be because Howard is just not that efficient in blocking so hopefully they will get him involved with the passing game break too. I just love and him and James Really seem to have a good rapport. If you see if you watch the DENVER GAME HOUSTON DENVER. They just told fortune with those tiny fant and I dropped him in fantasy that we put on and then he went off. I'm really surprised that their defense fence is not great. Will they've lost digit one right he's on. IRA lost cloudy. Yeah traded him to Seattle after they franchise China Stack them. None of But Bill Ryan's making all the personnel decisions because they let the GM going off season and never hired one. Roy We talked about that and you said that they probably wouldn't hire a GM when just let him run it. You're right yeah well. That's about Scotty Miller. Yeah you re thinking your the thoughts on this one no. I'm really not because I think Jane is last week. showed what he can do. Yes exactly we didn't have Chris gone in any way right. I mean Parents to become an into his own. Yeah just Watson hourly like you Crou- On that one. Yeah same here well. Both of them Berman Watson we were talking about are on the team. Yeah was that preseason her first couple weeks yeah I think. Probably preseason especially adjusted Watson because I wasn't impressed last season and then this season Oh discounting especially yeah in the preseason repairman got this weird thing when the ball comes to him. I don't what is but he just doesn't catch the ball gracefully. He puts himself in weird positions and he puts his hands up weird too. I hope he corrects that. You know I don't know I just might be playing style and I think once you get to this point in the professional level kind of like with James says like he has when he is. I don't know how much you can go l. about changing them. This is true so that's going to be interesting. Yeah this is. This is a perfect opportunity to to really highlight are tight ends hopefully really hopefully the buccaneers offense coordinators and stuff had saw Denver's playbook on how to just stop if you have game pass go after that game. It was really interesting. They did beat the crap out of the Texans. There are hitting them hard on both sides of the ball. Man I can't believe retainer Hudson is out. He's been hurt a lot this year. We have had I'm inactive. I think the first few games in the season then went all clear went on I R. I think they started activating him but not really using them that much. We've still got jorde legged to a tiny active. I liked him during the preseason. It's going to be interesting interesting. Donald Smith Hill most likely play. Yeah I think so too. If he didn't play I would probably really be worried. Would you keep josh wells in there. Would would you start Josh walls again or give Hawkins or Stinian chance Josh Wells. Yeah I think so too. He wasn't on the the ball he's a backup. And when you when you're getting your opportunities sixteen weeks in the season fifteen weeks will these these Texans they come in hard on the edge edge Mercilus and yeah that Scott Smith piece. On buccaneers DOT COM. He highlighted the matchup between Donovan and Mersal is less interesting. Would he say who's going to win. L. He doesn't make a prediction. But just says let's keep it safe. Yeah well Mercilus assist their top pass rushing threat with a team high five and a half sacks and thirteen quarterback hits little now. I don't think so either but you know. Now if he wasn't he was probably starting right British before Jay do walk out injured. Like Bruce Arians said. It's really hard to gauge these edge. Rusher by the stats like hits and sacks because there's a lot more that they contribute you know force quarterbacks out of pocket gets make them throw the ball early things of that nature and these-these Russia's Abe they really do come hard so Donald Donald Smith going to have to play Klay good and Martin Johnson more about him going up against that scarlet. GALLIC Scott got strong fast and relentless easing he'll have trouble yes now how I can almost guarantee he's going to have trouble with data. Donald Smith has this tendency to really step up when he plays against good pass. rushers assures so he rises to the challenge. Yeah he really does seem to like I said last year we played Dallas. was that last year. Yeah demarcus Lawrence human. Donald Smith and I was was just beauty. It was a great battle to watch. David Smith won that one. You Know He. He held the Marcus Lawrence to basically nothing that whole game with me and they were fighting. I was really good watch. So what's your prediction given. Some numbers are eight. I am going to be a homer and bucks are taking this one is going to be close. Actually I think they were favored in the odds in this one. I don't really know. Yeah well I don't really know how they work but I don't understand betting at all plus near the buccaneers numbers. So I thought that meant. We were favored and right now. It looks like we're we're underdogs But I know nothing about betting totally about three though in any case I think we take this one. I think it's close and I'm going to go with the score. War will be thirty two to twenty nine. ooh close close one. That's what I was GONNA say. Yeah I'll say thirty to twenty eight. They would don't copy me gotta change so what he again on Thursday twenty buccaneers. Of course this this is really going to be a test about how far we've come where we are as a team because our win streak is against shitty teams. The team that we play played. We lost two so here it is. We have an opportunity to face a good team and playoff-caliber team colts were considered a good team that time in but now imploded broke the colts. That implosion certainly started with us. Maybe not because I think they were only earliest streak to anyway. I always like going up against good teams. Yeah I think it makes your team better whether you win or lose entertaining to watch and I've been hearing that everywhere on the ESPN NFL network. All the they're like. Wow you know. Tampa Bay is really fun to watch. which made James Winston? This is a fun to team. I'm like yeah that's here. That's what's all about entertainment all right so that's going to wrap it up for us If you want to hang out and listen to Bruce Arians latest press converts. We'll have it at the end of the podcast. Attached at the back end anything to add Kamali net. Then all right. This is a home game. Let's fill up the stadium. I WANNA see nothing but red and not Houston red tape red in those stands. Let's pack it out and make get a give our team in an advantage. Do Our job as the twelve man. It said if nothing else be an exciting game because I wanNA wear my colors proud this week right and I wanNA be walking around. People are going to swoop. Saturday ain't gonNA happen. We got this no. We don't get our boats. Were not the Carolina Panthers all right until next time. Go Bucks slowly let me just make it back further vinyl. I would hope so. I mean so. Many new faces the passing game. Whether it's to the receivers paid and how much do you do you pull back at all in countries like no no guys that have been here you know. He's put him in position. Do you think that can be can do it. And Be Successful and No get Jamesy. Trust to go progressions injuries and trust. WHO's out there met gay? They had kind of been limited with the grind. Everything going forward to accomplish with WHO still I mean even the playoffs. Is there such a thing as a signature. You'd be one too long record. You can't really play up for that. I mean obviously how solidify this this is one that's in first division and it would be. Yeah I think it's something you can really build off of Bruce. You're facing the Shawn Watson Communist. It quoted fifth hockey for panoply batted Having faced Russell a couple of others. That helps you know. Know what you're up against talk to. You have to be disciplined just to be aggressive but along those same lines lock gate laws would be running. Gave actually pretty good to do Johnston. Oh yeah they're stood up very potent running game and in a lot of speed outside. So that's a heck of an offensive to try to defend. Okay how what she in came as a group founded on his D depot. You look at the numbers while out of what a passing yard has been from. What from what I've seen on film to this year? We're tremendously is that a matter would result implied a ton of that and then the withdrawal out of those deep in practice and this not Duggan. It's like percent of your offense where they're alone or percent. I'm in how. How do you keep the guys that are out there kind of locked in and focused on the task at hand despite losing such key contributors? This is next ban of that's what you always do and ones men injuries and other matters opportunity and somebody will shine as much as those young receivers have to come in here. A special teams becomes what they have to help you with that. That's the huge part when you start start sliding dies out. Moving people up the depth chart who goes special teams. Some guys roles Did this doubling up. Because there's nobody left I. It is returned to Plymouth. That simulates know who come mid week and handle do. He's yeah he's he did it all all campfires and did a game so that wouldn't be a problem at all.

"When you have great coaches then have the great coaches you get great players have a great organization and you tell them one thing window not a smart play and you expect from a quarterback who's been around now was six years six seven years let's go raider nation in I like this you never question his desire that's one thing you can never second guess is his desire to win but at the same time it's just it's just the raiders Had a chance on paper going into this game I spoke last week about I felt that it would be a game where the raiders could could move the ball it should be able to put up some points I thought that Akita game would be the raiders red zone offenses we spoke with Matt Schneiderman last week of the athletic quickly common on on the fumble by Derek Carr lucky you can't blame you can't fault Derek Carr for his efforts point I chose the car fumble as the turning point play of the week this week on silver black pride dot com Aaron Rodgers and that really proved to be a big factor in the game When you consider that the raiders had two turnovers in the red zone both by Derek Carr and Josh Jacobs was later on the show be joined by guests Patrick Star who covers the Texans for SL DOT COM? He's also the host of his own podcast state of the Texans about the packers defense and how they had been susceptible giving a big yardage season-long but they've been very tough to score on inside the Red Zone it's alright radiation we're back at it again this week coming off that embarrassing loss to the packers at Lambeau field listen what can I say I each time and score points so major major swing their the turnovers were absolute killers The car fumble especially crucial Jon gruden brought it the raiders had a chance to go up in the game seventeen fourteen just before the half they would've prevented the the packers from going down the field to score bounce Ju just just go out of bounds throw it away throw it away there's no need for him to to try to take that risk and I've said it many nation you can check me out on twitter Ige wrote five and you can check out more my work and several other talented people's work over at silver and black pride dot com I believe but instead of that happening the next time the raiders got the ball back into their hands it was the score was twenty eight ten and pretty much it was it was definitely over at that Oh stop on that fourth in one from the one yard line so you know that was a major swing a point swing in the game the the packers were able to go down the field it was just having one of those days where the raiders would have had to score and every possession it felt like to to have shot in this game I do sort the the guy just wants to make plays and he he wants to win so badly for his team you know it's hard to it's hard to get on them for for his desire to win his desire to make plays begins to affect his decision making often times you know the end result you gotta be smarter wh when it comes to plays like that especially when you're on the two yard line in a in a very tight ballgame I mean it was second down from the to just go out times over the years and I feel like it's ben more so recently in the last couple of years about about DC I just think sometimes is him trying to do too much which which leads to a interception forcing the ball to a receiver which we saw on the second turnover where he tried to force the ball them to adjust pod baby with your host Evan grow your home for raiders news notes and information just pod baby is a part of the silver and Black Pride podcast network powered by SP had the pass rush was was again non-existent the linebackers were being picked on from the start of the game To Pass Waller I I just think at times he tries to too much and it ends up hurting the team so I I you know I obviously I'm not the coaching team but and just learned to make make a smart decision even when it's in the heat of the moment Do Talk a little bit about the defense because they were they were puget issues there for for raiders linebackers in the secondary had one of the worst games that I can ever recall them having in recent memory they gave up explosives I think it's something that Gruden needs to address with him is just living the play another down in a you know you're not GonNa win the game in one place so you'll take it one day at a time uh-huh Kerr's running backs caught touchdown passes a tight end Jimmy Graham Carter tight end so there was definitely some matchup plays they missed tackles there was miscommunication it's just everything that you don't WanNa see from your secondary and it wasn't just one person that you can point the finger out Joseph had his issues and communication on the back end the defense was just really exposed by the packers and and that led to you know forty two points of offense from the packers Aaron Rodgers finished the game with a perfect passer rating so that that really tells you all you need to know you know I do and you can't put this all on Derek Carr allowed although you know those turnovers were crucial. The defense didn't do the team any favors they were they were awful all three levels were is crucial when you think about the tiebreaker and the role they could play in the playoff picture so those are some of my thoughts on last week's encounter chalk this one up into they just Kinda ran into a buzzsaw I mean it wasn't a great performance they had they had mistakes on offense they allowed the packers the twenty third round pick it's really rare to see a player go from one team to another one team player being traded and they were all bad collie was was was bad Worley got beat for a touchdown Harris gave up a touchdown he had that with injuries and he's just not made an impact he's not made the impact that you expect from a first round pick to a team that is the is the opponent for that week that kind of tells you how Gruden fell about Conley he just kind of want that's accurate but I do believe I do agree with this move I think it was time to move on I know calmly still very young player and I I think a team that should make a deep run into the playoffs the defence is much improved so try to keep things in perspective you know let's not call on Jimmy Graham where he grabbed his Jersey and I know that maybe that call was seen as questionable to some people but it you know it was a call that was made Carl he does he he he can turn around but it just wasn't working out in Oakland I think getting a third round pick back for him is good value for a player who who the raiders while the raiders have shown improvements this season the packers are one of the better teams in the league now I mean I I believe there what six one now they're going to be let's not let's not take the bridge here keep things in perspective the raiders are still three and three they're still in the haunt there one spot out of the last wildcard spot in this week's game I'm to move almost as if it pains him to move he kind of looks old out there and you know I kinda have to agree with those assessments. Although obviously bhan largely a disappointment to this point in his career he's he's you know they battled injuries I don't WanNa say injury plagued but he he's definitely had his issue not a Lotta guys have survived from that two thousand seventeen draft class calmly doesn't really fit the mold of what what Paul gone debacle and Green Bay next I do want to talk about the big news surrounding the raiders this week and that was the trade of Gary Colley to the Houston Texans for two thousand and I don't really think a couple of thoughts on the trade I don't think gruden was ever really sold on Conley you know he was a part of that on county in fact he doesn't look physical at all from from what I could see he he looks very kind of small out there really it's one thing I thought he just looked very especially the guy who I if you recall he fell later to around one because of the the allegations that were going on with him he was and to get him out of there he wanted to he was ready to ship them out I do think that Gruden gets criticize quite a bit for for making some emotional decisions and I think sometimes think Grooten or Gunther was was satisfied with the progress that they were seen with him I heard some people on twitter I've read some people looks for in his corners he wants big physical corners and s just not something that Raider fans have seen from Gary those comments about Connie seen how he looks slow he it one person I read described as he he looked like it's just a struggle kinda frail I guess you could say he does not tackle well and at the end of the day he he he gave up too far too many big plays he was he was susceptible Reggie McKenzie in Jack del Rio regime which only has two players remaining on the current roster from that that two thousand he was talked about as early as being an early first round pick so definitely hasn't produced like a player who was projected to go as early as you know the first half of around giving a big explosive plays whether it was miss tackles that allowed receivers to run free or getting beat d just gave up too many big plays and I don't think a number of different guys I believe Nevin Lawson is back as well so we we could see him getting some time as well I think Gruden in May I felt comfortable making this move with the trio of young rookie cornerbacks that they have on the roster and Trayvon Mohan Isaiah Johnson who we're hearing to finish up segment number one I do WanNa talk a little bit about this week's game with the Texans this week is finally the end of that brutal a good things about through training camp and then he suffered that injury and then was placed an i. r. and of course Keyshawn Nixon is well the undrafted free agents no not travel every weekend here the raiders are seven point underdogs right now and and these are some of my thoughts on the game the Texans run defense a seventeen draft class who is David Sharp and Marquel Lee and if you think about it sharp was actually let go and then brought back so it has has been really good this year long much like the raiders have The Texans are giving up only about e four yards a game on the ground right now I very concerned about the run game I don't know if Deandra Washington Jalen Rashard Kin I do think although both teams would like to try to establish some sort of run game it has the potential to be a high scoring affair again this week he's not old and I'm sure it doesn't pain him to move but it Kinda look that way when you wash them out there he just always looked like he was kind of a step behind very mobile quarterback he can he can make plays inside and outside the pack pocket much like What they saw from Aaron Rodgers last week Oh five game stretch of road games for the raiders in and I know that you know players and coaches alike are ready to Texans offensive line has not been great and protecting rogers aren't Rogers excuse me Watson even with the addition of learn meets Laremy Tunsil the raiders absolutely cannot allow him to just dance around back there and buy himself time in the pocket again like Aaron Rodgers was able to do last week I did see on the injury report that the Texans first round draft pick right guard Titus Howard is out this week with a knee injury I do think one of the keys to the game will be the Raiders Pass Rush we'll be able to get some pressure on Shawn Watson he's later in the game we all know how how big of a role he plays in the raiders offense and we all know how much younger and wants to run the ball if Jacobs is not available this has been very poorest this year it sounds like tyrone Williams we'll be back in the lineup he practiced this week and it also sounds like Zeta Jones could see some action as well so Willie Brown was playing of course I've seen highlights and I've read all the great things that people were in Rashard I think this is a game where Derek Carr could be expected to put the offense on his on his shoulders and and it could work out because the Texans pass defense he's been getting the majority of the work this week in practice with the first team and he he did also gunther did also mentioned the possibility of Nixon seen about him in his passing this week a brown is a hall of Famer He played twelve seasons with the raiders four time all pro we're who were projected to start at the beginning of the season they finally have all five back that's the plan I I still think the run game struggle if they're relying on Washington raiders legend Willie Brown at the age of seventy You know obviously I'm a little bit too young to have You Know Ben Around Wet Wild Jacob major impact on the game it's gotTa be this week so I I do think that is one of the keys to the game I I do WanNa comment before we Watson has already been sacked twenty one times this year so if there ever was a week for the raiders pass rush to to finally get something going and and you know fell in the league itself from the Outpour of support that he received a his family received after atra his passing this week you know pick up the slack so to speak even even with a good offensive line you know th they're supposed to have all five offensive I'm in and as of now Josh Jacobs is listed as questionable on on their injury report and we're going to get to that in just a moment but I I believe his health will be a major factor Break here I do want to comment on on one more piece of news this week Surrounding the raiders and that was the passing of you saw past and present raiders ranging from Khalil Mack at Tim Brown Charles Woodson I saw Darren McFadden all sunny now tweets back to discuss the week eight injury report Hey I'm Spencer Hall I'm Holly Anderson I'm Ryan Nanny I'm Jason Kirk and one of the more I- connick plays in Super Bowl history with was Willy Brown's pick six to Kinda seal the victory for the Raiders in Super Bowl Eleven You know you you really understand the impact that Willie Brown had nine only the raiders organization but the fuller I mentioned the guard slash tackle Titus Howard with a knee injury and center guard Greg Manse all three no in our in our chosen profession Willie Brown rest in peace my condolences to the Brown family and after this quick break I'll be so if you listen to Paul on third this week when he met with the media it sounds like Molin is going to be getting a you know the I I look at the starting job with just kind things to say about how great of a man and how great if a person that Willie Brown was so you know that's cornerback Bradley Roby with a hamstring he was also limited all week you can see how banged up the Texans secondary is which those players are out they do have some other players listed as questionable notably not most notable players in the secondary they have three players what life's all about it's about making an impact on people and you know that's the kind of legacy that we all hope to to leave talk about everything from cooking disasters pro wrestling too unfashionable pants worn middle school we also do college football every now and then like mascot fights the injury report here in front of me for both teams going to start with the Houston Texans there are three players that are listed as out right now that's wide receiver will tackle Rodrick Johnson so I'm assuming he's there swing tackle I'm not certain so if Titus Howard can't go and the secondary listed as questionable safety Tashaun Gipson with a back hamstring mannerist who was limited all we can practice Rodrick Johnson also can't go I'm thinking they're going to be resorting to third string Tackle which which again bodes well for that readers pass rush so they wanted to do on a on on offense Aaron Rodgers is a hall of fame quarterback. Let's let's let's be honest he had a career day Key on Apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast APP okay we're back here and just pod baby with your host Evan Grote I do have the weekend if you haven't seen it yet three players listed as questionable Trent Brown still nursing that calf injury he was limited on Wednesday and Thursday did Sir fleeing the booth early and unfashionable pants that coaches where now if you want to take college football exactly as seriously as it should be taken subscribe for free keep an eye on the status of those players as we move closer to game time on Sunday Raiders Injury Report says a lot about why they went out in a acquired Gary uncommonly this week I would expect to see Conley step right in some other players listened questionable Josh Jacobs did not practice Wednesday or Thursday was limited on Friday I don't believe he took part in much of practice he was on the field I saw on twitter for the stretching period but in in place some big time snaps for the Texans this week one other player listed here on the report as questionable is I believe he's a backup in a full practice on Friday so it does look like the raiders will finally be at full strength with the offensive line into the workout facility once the practice began so he's he's probably GonNA end up being a game time decision with that would that shoulder injury so that is your injury report for week eight keep an eye on some of those gametime status as we approach Sundays listed on the report this week for the raiders but aren't listed with a gametime status is Senator Rodney Hudson. He did not practice on Wednesday kickoff up next is my interview with Patrick Star who covers the Houston Texans for SL DOT COM listen as questionable but from what I heard today from Gruden they are expecting him to play he was limited all week in practice a couple of other players cornerback longtime Texan Jonathan Joseph with an hamstring and a neck injury he was also limited all week in practice and newly-acquired through free agency him I'm not quite sure as he returned from his knee injury last week he did not participate in practice on Wednesday he was limited on Thursday and was a full go on Friday the host of the shutdown full cast your avengers of college football podcast it says in the script into riff on what that means and basically what I mean is it's all spoiled every Tuesday I would like to welcome this week's guest Patrick Star who covers the Texans for SL dot com Patrick also does some work for sports talk seven was limited on Thursday and was a full go on Friday as well as guard Gabe Jackson with a knee and this could just be kind of some planned respite ardent keys GonNa Return this week he was limited Thursday full practice on Friday so he's going to be back this week as well as tyrel Williams's back he but then again last week they they were on the short end of a thirty two twenty three loss to the colts so my first question is what's been the issue for inconsistency they they opened the year with a close loss to the saints then they rattled off two wins follow that up with another close loss to the panthers so it sounds like maybe they're just kind of you know handling those two with with with kid gloves and just kind of given them some extra rest ninety am in Houston as well as hosts his own podcast state of Texans Patrick Welcome to just be how you doing tonight I'm doing great got back on track again with two more wins including the win at Arrowhead in in readers fans know all too well how difficult of a place that is to win an arrowhead you know bits and pieces of that chief's game I did do some research in preparation for this interview tonight it looks like they've kind of had an up and down year thanks for having me on no problem problem let's let's get right into this now I haven't had the opportunity to really see much of the Texas this year to be honest I I take me the Texans this year in in why so much inconsistency from week to week I'll play the funny thing about when you when you talk about the assistance so bill O'Brien has been with the Texans since two thousand you know sixteen I think team sixteen somewhere it's been a while how with a huge ceiling that looks like man this inquiry really good the news come back and see a week later and you're like Oh this is ugly The report as of today I did see that will fuller was ruled out along with a couple other guys titus Howard the inconsistencies are still there but they've never prior to this year have been able to beat teams that have personnel and they went in there and I mean I don't know how you guys feel about the chiefs itself but no matter how down that team right right good stuff there I always like to start these interviews off with with getting an update on the opposing team's injury report I do have a copy of I've noticed this up and down is a totally reverse one where it Kinda gives the fan base especially you know some of the ones that comment on article that was they can handle all the terrible quarterbacks before but when they play the good quarterback Tom Brady's you know that's one that they never how do you say you know Upper Echelon quarterbacks mates you know Philip Rivers they they did beat the Guardmen Shoe Jaguars Greg I'm not sure if I'm going to pronounce it right Greg Mandzic man man's man's yeah cute cute talk about some of the other not four execution it was just a a a myriad of different types of issues but it's their Jecklin high team right there they wanted and there was really no question after the chiefs jumped out the Texans really took control of that game and it was pretty much over and that gave a lot people hope on like hey this team could be real and then they had the emotional letdown against a cheeky the colts where they were sloppy penalties early as one of the Sean Watson's Worst Games they did handle Matt Ryan as you know the Falcons defense is terrible but like you said the big win they had against the chiefs and Philip rivers against the chargers I mean these are wins at the Texans have never experienced before but in the same breath they've been able to get by and even Patrick Mahomes last year and you know Andrew Luck they we knew the story but this year like I said it's been the opposite oh players who are listed on the rapport and you know what is the expectation as far as them being active for the game in and if not how will impact the game or like there's actually hope now the Kansas City win was one that no one really knew what the tax is going to do they were down cornerbacks they were down they've had these lulls that they've had where they've had these emotional wins these that they they haven't had before like always before without you know ask questions and that we add answer and things like that that you could almost sit different vibe that they're not so much down like before practice squad New England Patriots Dan Skipper six nine offense of tackle should be starting at their for him he got a little and that's like a total one eighty than what we're used to especially me covering O'Brien and his tenure here that this has been a team that has rodrick Johnson guy that was with Cleveland with two or three seasons ago got cut he was a fifth or sixth round pick out of four state a lot of people said he came out luckily they were able to isn't that a season ender but as you know they've got what guys he'll he's their first round draft selection awful you know ten eleven in a row it's pretty much solidify their spot in the playoffs in the south but this year has been a little bit different looks you always have to be leery because of mahomes and how well he plays all the weapons Travis Kelsey and Andy can do and the Texans went in there and just did last week but him Lonnie Johnson and you'll probably see carry on Conley already Suited up this Sunday and then shown that maybe this team is for real maybe the team can be one of those teams and of course you know it all starts with show Watson but that's the big thing that I run last week and he's only been with the Texas What four practices less than a little over a week so if Roger Johnson John Gibson they're starting to safety he's been I mean every week they add a new new flash to his injury report I think right concerned that I'm going to be watching it skipper just hadn't played enough football he's been a practice squad guy for two or three seasons and and now he's already thrown in for the Texans you you mentioned the first to write their willful who just got hurt the first drive against the colts last week luckily for the Texans well that's been pretty good this year title powers of big what he's been out to he got hurt in Kansas City chiefs game poor slightly tore a MC L. and his he is expected to step in immediately in play this week Oh yeah I mean Bill O'Brien's I alluded to it on Wednesday the day they traded for him he flew in Monday been okay he won a spot during training camp well he got hurt last week a neck issue it looks like a guy they just claimed off of practice squad or signed up the heat things and he'll probably more likely be the starter at right tackle the biggest concern for the Texans right now is probably the reason I gary on with a cast on that hand that wrist injury so I don't know what they're GonNa do and Hinton's if he can't go Dalil Guy he's been AFC west Wurley of the Texans just Kinda a reclamation project and turn them into a suitable tackle or swing pack when he started did the physical because I think that's exactly when the trade went down so to speak but yes he arrived the Houston Monday Mike if I'm correct good friend plus the Secondary Job Joseph the veteran for the Texans he looks like he he will play he has a neck injury that he suffered last that one year gamble from the Denver Broncos has been their best cornerback the entire season during against the Kansas City chiefs get hurt Ed has been decimated by injury they lost Philip gains last week with a high ankle sprain that's going to require surgery he's done for the year so they've had open like it but he's actually been been outstanding they're often tackles and everyone does the Texans offensive line has been the topic of discussion I've been how would you say so called you know he called it a new vibe he was embracing the entire situation just because one guy that helped them find a little bit more about dairy on Conley as Texans outside linebacker coach former defensive coordinator assistant head coach there for the turn off season but they're all line has been a lot better and as you noted the Texans are dealing with multiple wins the guy that actually stepped into for titus our on city chiefs it'll more they have enlisted it's questionable it's more than likely he'll be out which is a huge plus for the raiders I think that he's better huge L. says wrist back and I'm GonNa say hamstring that's correct that's correct that's correct he's got a he's got a little bit of everything of you know and he kinda knew that he fell out of favor with the raiders you know being a Jack del Rio Reggie McKenzie Hold over into the JON GRUDEN lot of water injuries that they've had and that's the main reason they had to go get Gary Okay well that's a perfect segue to my next question because obviously we all know there was the trade this week between the raiders and the Texans excuse me and it's not common you see a player go from one team to the other one at the upcoming opponent but and actually close friend Bradley Roby who was with them at a state was actually at the airport waiting for him so this is actually site on Conley than most people realize and getting him in Houston is probably a big thing because the tax plan on keeping him not only do they have an issue as you go Dan skipper we'll be there and Depending how the the Raiders Pass Cross us I know they have a few guys I can heat up the passer that's going to be an area of for for player sometimes and sometimes it's it comes down to a scheme fit in and for whatever reason it just didn't work out with the raiders but disguise the first round talent maybe it just wasn't the right thing because there's a lot of times you see this happen when players get traded and it's just not the place for them then all of a sudden you're like man Bill O'Brien confident that he fits exactly what the Texans WanNa do the Texans WanNa play a man's game and they feel like Gary uncommonly guy that they have been wanting I think that's the beauty of sports a little bit you know what I'm saying is that raiders fans ready to throw them in the Bucket Texans fans and looking at this as a hate that's what happened with Garin counting this week so you kind of already touched on it the Texans you do believe the Texans are planning on suiting up colony in only now here's their secondary and it's not necessarily that they're personnel was terrible it's just that they're banged up and injured Bradley Roby they're big signing Kenny stills who they got Larry Tunsil at the beginning of the year still jump into his spot and I don't expect like a huge fall off in that sense Kenny stills I think he wore that number in his rookie season with the raiders but yes he will be suited up on Sunday I agree with you about the you know the kind of change of scenery can be really good heads with Jon Gruden said that they wanted to go younger at the positioning you look at Gary on comedy he's only twenty four years old so had a lot of people wondering Clowney they're in a trade you still have. Jj Watt but how has the the pass rush held up without cloudy the past Russian mainstay he was with the charter for the longest but with the one that with going that place they'd have to figure out who their safety as their secondary is like it back if you didn't have a sack doll but he was all over the place and I mean it revolves around him they're doing things up front Running stunts to make sure you know it sounds like the Texans feel like he's he's like you said a great fit for what they're trying to do there in Houston I do want to stay on the defensive side of the extends to two thousand seventeen when they met with him during the Pre jab process at the same year they got to Shawn Watson they felt like it was just too good of a situation pass up fight over guards and that's been a huge huge plus and like I said it's been a mixed bag the Texans have had to try to blitz or they get jj watt one on one the one thing that I've noticed about Jj this year he's more willing to move inside again there's been it's been a few seasons especially into injury a mixed bag right now outside of Jj Watt Whitney Mercilus has five and a half sacks four and a half five and a half sacks somewhere in there yet had one I this this game is GonNa fall on the Texans cornerbacks to tackle and cover just because of how how well Derek Carr gets the ball raiders at the time was John Pagano he was there with the raiders in two thousand seventeen win he was drafted so they have a a little bit more that it works out so it'll be interesting to see how this plays out but yes scary on comedy will be suited up he will be wearing number twenty two the least sacked quarterbacks in the NFL because he gets rid of the ball so quick I would be surprised if the Texans had more than two he had those back to back seasons of injuries where he's exclusively just wanted to stay on the outside so to speak this year he's actually getting back to the UH safeties cornerbacks run donald with the linebackers trying to get in there so I think you know I thought about this too you know their car is one you know covering him that you know he's still in the middle of his rookie deal in Texas plan to exercise his fifth year option to continue to let him develop here in Houston offense now they've been pretty potent this year they're eighth Though the eighth highest scoring team the League averaging twenty six points a game fit total yards it appears that they have some pretty good it'll be a long day for the raiders because what happens then is it that running game gets going linebacker start peaking safety start peaking and that's ball we've

FTP Ep. # 162: NFL Wildcard Weekend Preview with ATS & DFS Picks

"Welcome to the fantasy Throwdown podcast bringing you the latest sports news fantasy analysis and opinions don't forget the hot takes and have Hort show without heartaches these days. What about hotcakes though, I want odd case? Now, here's your host ready to jump into the thick of things Dwayne calendar. Welcome to the show where everybody got lots of talk about because we've got NBA. And of course, the beginning of the NFL playoffs, obviously in the NBA the talk of the town and just basically the league in general is James harden. I mean harden again burying the warriors Thursday night with a forty four point ten rebound. Fifteen the sys- game including a game winning three pointer with Draymond green. And Klay Thompson draped over him. Obviously everyone's talking about how dominant harden has been this year. But we're getting a little bit crazy with of the talk because rockets GM Darrow Maury, basically said the following you can make you could argue for him as the best offensive player of all time. Let's be clear harden is having enough. Other MVP season well-deserved, he's gone off. He's averaging thirty three point two game. But let's be clear about the rationale behind. How those points are getting gathered harden is an expert at baiting teams into fouling him. He flops all the time any hooks people. I mean, it's not as though it's unwarranted because with the NBA rule changes that came into effect once David Stern get ticked off with the league product of watching the Spurs and pistons engage in a seven seven game series. That was a rock fight the entire way through over a decade ago. He made sure to get rid of hand checking in any other form of defense. You could play in the league at to make it a point guard driven leak, and he's gotten they've the NBA got what they wanted. I mean, harden true to form has actually perfected the. Size. I mean, you started seeing it with Steve Nash and in like an AI. But like teams have started to figure out if you can't you can't face guards on one. You can't you can't put your hands on them. And they're constantly jumping into you. Or in hardens case, they also have prevented you from being able to prevent them from driving to the hoop and also by giving them space. They could just do a step back three pointer right in your face. And there's nothing you can do about it. You know, at this point harden is actually in fact on guard -able because you will fell out of more contests. The more you try to challenge the only way to get hard and off his game right now is to just deny him the ball entirely and just become with the fact that you're going to give up to thirty plus points to the likes of Austin rivers for Gerald green. Because that's really what's going to take. You're going to have the deny hard on the ball as much as humanly possible. And just hope that the other guys don't absolutely crush you. Because at this point harness has scored forty points at five consecutive games and the elegance who actually do that in a league history are Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and Allen Iverson in the past fifty years, again, this is a two guys in the modern era. And I and I gotta move it. I say an air 'cause I say the Jordan years again when you can actually play defense at hand check, folks, it's a different period NBA history. You have to take it into context as to how things are going. So I I would say in terms of the league right now you've got hard in doing things that no one else is doing because base off of the stats alone. Harden has now drained a hundred step back threes to season. Now, the guy in second place is one of my personal favorites. Luca Donncha who? Who is the NBA rookie of the year? It's not close but Donncha which is second both twenty eight. I I mean, again harden is just doing things that other guys the league are not able to do they don't have that kind of repertoire, so you know, hardened says it's a lot of hard work. And you have to gotta bloom because you know, he's he's kinda doing a similar motion of of setting up his offense in ways that, you know, realistically, you don't really see that much of because at that's what makes it so hard to defend against because not a lot of guys are have this kind of moves that he kinda uses that old man game on you. But you know, it is what it is. But. Yeah. Hardin right now is making an easy case for every p again this year. I would say genus is also right up there in obviously, you can make cases for LeBron as usual in quiet, Leonard up in Toronto, although qui- had a Ruutel. Welcome home back to San Antonio the other night, but I fully expect the raptors bounceback. But anyway, let's get into the NFL action. Coming up later today. Obviously, we had the wild card round in some interesting match ups to say, the least because I got look at this slate as a couple of games that, you know, the lines don't quite make a whole lot of sense. So I'll just kind of parse through it. And we'll take it from there. So the first game we've got the Houston Texans hosting. The Indianapolis Colts Texans are favored by. And depending on your the sportsbook. You're looking at it. They could be fair by one they could be fair by what have they could be favored by two points. But realistically, the Texas are not clue fail. Because usually when you see a line where it's less than three points. That means folks don't trust the home team in terms of the odds makers, and that's why the line too low to me. This is a clear case that the culture better team the Texans. I mean, the only reason why the line is favoring the Texas because the home team, and I'll get to another line that didn't quite make a whole lot of sense to me. But you know, the the long term of it is is that. You know what the Texans even though they came in with an eleven five record. They played one of the easiest schedules in the NFL, if not the easiest it depends on how you want to read out the actual strength of schedule a metric they they have different measures. But regardless of like, they're in the I would say bottom three or top three depending on how you look at it in terms of easiest schedules. I it really was a cakewalk. So the winning streak the Texans went on realistically there were all playing bound feeding team. So again making the playoffs should have been given for the squad. The problem is is that the way they got there still kinda shows a lot of that proud of the seem. I love the Shawn Watson don't get me wrong. But my issue with the semen I address it before I have severe doubts about the coaching ability Bill, Brian, and I have no confidence in this defense being able to show up, despite the fact. That they've got David on cloudy and JJ watt. This defense consistently struggles to get pass Russia's when they should be able to get a pass rush and the run stopping isn't really up to snuff as much as women like. So I still think that there's a a way for Marla MAC on the colts actually have a pretty productive day today. I'm not entirely sold on the Texans. Just from the standpoint of I think they can be hurt with screen games. And I think they can be hurt by the deep ball as well. And as I said the run game. Yes, it looks good in spots. But they've been gashed on the run at times this season two. So, you know, they're numerous factors here. But I definitely would be taking the culture. But the one thing I will say about this game is that this should be the highest scoring game of the weekend. I'll be slightly surprised if it doesn't end up being the high scoring game. It's got the highest point total at forty eight and a half. Half. I actually expect that total be over. I do think between these two teams they'll be able to air the ball out. And I have confidence that the Shawn Watson being able to find ways of getting the Android Hopkins. The ball, you know in the NFL the season Hopkins had over one hundred fifteen catches and zero drops. And yeah, maybe I just jinxed him, but the man just bawled out the entire year. And I just think that we're going to see a show between him and T Y Hilton today I- Hilton has torched the Texans in both matchups this year. I expect more of the same today. Realistically, the second. There is the weakest part of Houston St. fence and there's nothing about this game today. That tells me that the Texas have figured out a way of stopping Andrew luck the culture gonna throw the ball. We know this, and I do think between Marla MAC and. Name Himes the colts are gonna find success with the running game as well. So I just think that the colts are to balance on offense. And that's what carries them through to next round. You know, realistically, the NFL would be pushing for a colts cheese match. Just 'cause I mean, Andrew lucked versus a Patty is Patrick Mahomes. I mean that cell cells TV, right then and there I mean, there's no getting around it to obviously with Cosby and sixty they they would play the cheese outright. If they were to prevail today. And you know, if the Texans wind in their automatically locked into playing they're automatically locked into playing the patriots of should be interesting up. And we'll see we'll see how it goes today. But I'm curious. Curious to see how the Texas respond because you know, as I said, they have been perennial pretenders for a number of years. Now, this is the fifth time in eight years. The Texans have played the Saturday Saturday while car match up and each time the Texas find ways of looking even more pitiful than alas, and yes, I know their quarterback injuries in different excuses. You can label on it. But you know, at a certain point a team just has to step up and get it done. And that's really all. I'm looking for here. I'm looking for Texas actually, show me something that gives me a reason to believe in them moving. Thanks over to the nightcap. Obviously, we've got Seattle traveling to Dallas the Cowboys are a two point favorite which is surprising to me because you know, again, we've seen this time at the time. The Cowboys are better home team than row team. So to me. I understand why folks have conserved about the Cowboys showing up for certain games, but not at home at home. The Cowboys are actually a pretty well-balanced quad. The defense plays much better the offense place better. I I look at this as a game where the Cowboys should have been at three and a half point favorite just from a valuation standpoint. I would have to take the Cowboys in this spot. Not because I'm gonna bash Seattle, but you know, on the basis of both teams you get run heavy teams. Obviously Seattle has the edge in the quarterback battle with the outside throws, but you got to very good defenses. So I don't really see Seattle being able to generate enough offense to realistically give Dallas enough trouble down the stretch. Because the way you kind of beat the Cowboys as you kinda give them out of their element. So Seattle would have to force turnovers and be able to score points off of every turnover in order to put down in the spot where they're going to abandon the run game. You know to me. This is straightforward game of Dallas is going to run the ball Zeke. They're gonna play action and try to take a couple of shots down the field with Amari Cooper. They're macking of waste time. Trying to do the intermediate passing game. So as much as some folks would say, you know, if they use Kobe's Louis, I I really don't think that's it's going to be that kind of game plan for Dallas. I think they're really going to just kinda concentrate on. Giving Zeke as many carries as possible. And you know, try to move the needle that way. So they can they can open up some shots down the field against Seattle secondary. Which is very good. But Shaquille Griffin has been beat throughout season. So I think they're going to try to get a Samachar with Mark Cooper against a Griffin. So you know, in terms of the matchup itself, it's a forty three and a half line and outside of the colts sexist game. I think the recipes playoff games are going to go under typically have the scoring and playoff games drops off from the regular season usually get like one crazy wild card game. But more often, it tends to be more balanced in terms of the overall under numbers, and I have to lean towards a that. My mindset I just between the amount of runs that Dallas and Seattle will carry out the this evening. It's going to shorten the game up tremendously. And you're just not gonna have enough possessions by both squads to put up forty four points or more. I just look at this game where Dallas ekes out of victory by field goal in again with it being. A minus to spread. I just think that the valuation just works out a far better for Dallas it. It's it's hard to get off that line. Moving onto the Sunday matchups. We've got the ravens playing that host to the chargers. Who are? I mean in terms of teams that got screwed by the NFL the chargers really should be the ones complaining because you got the chargers flying from the west coast to play a one o'clock game Sunday in Baltimore why the chargers are playing Sunday early afternoon when they could have just taken one to Saturday. That's your guesses. Good as mine. I I don't know how they set up the TV money. I mean to me Dallas would have made more sense as the prime time match up on Sunday at four o'clock. And then you could have just had the chargers ravens play either that four clock a game on Saturday. And then you have. The eagles bears Saturday in you slide the Texans and colts too early early Sunday. But you know, I just don't I don't really get how the chargers ended up getting shorter the stickier because again, a one o'clock game on the east coast. It's going to be ten AM Pacific time terms their body collapses. It's just not really a fair ask a team, especially when you had more than enough time to set up these playoffs schedules to alleys balance it out for the rest of the squad's traveling. I mean, Seattle got the late night the evening game, slots it. It's just a it's a it's a rough draw in my opinion. If you're chargers fan, but. Be that as it may looking at the chargers ear they are three point underdogs to the ravens, you know, really tight game here, forty one and a half total. And I'm I'm kinda gauging this from the standpoint of. If Melvin Gordon were healthy. People would be more in favor of the chargers. And I know Baltimore came into San Diego played the tails off and just took it to the chargers and got the w I get it. I get it. There's nut. There's I'm not gonna dispute that the one concern. I have with Baltimore is the fact that they played a balance well as they could play against the chargers. Because again when you're playing against the offense. The ravens have with Lamar Jackson. It is very hard to prepare for. But the benefit that Baltimore has most teams as that under teams haven't really seen it. And so they couldn't prepare for the churches. I've seen it a ready in the past month. So it takes away the element of surprise. So I look at that as a as a game where he. You know, the chargers can find a way to steal this one and get the W just from the standpoint of I could see the chargers defense being more ready to go to stop the ravens rushing tight because even there I encounter. The ravens were not able to rush for two hundred yards against the chargers. Whereas they've been able to do that against every other squad this year. So again, I look at I look at the the match up here. And I just I don't necessarily see as much of an advantage for the ravens as other folks have done, and you know, one of the other things that I would say about this is the fact that you know, if we're if we're looking at the tale of Tate. It's still a bit of it's a it's a bit. It's a bit of a adjustment curve for the Ray is because you know, you got a rookie making his first playoffs. I in the Margerison. And you know, I don't really know if the ravens are going to be able to put up enough points to get it done against charges and blame me I'm well aware of Philip rivers choking in the postseason. You don't have to tell me twice about rivers choking in the postseason and finding ways of of losing losing out on on golden opportunities in the playoffs. But the one thing I'll say here is that usually the big the big choked up for that you see out of rivers at times in the postseason happens later on. Not in the wild card round. So he usually has a solid wildcard round. It's the subsequent matchups in the postseason that draws some concern top. I I look at this as a game where I think the chargers managed the economic dis- screams more of a twenty two seventeen kinda game. The me with charge prevailing, you know. I could end up being wrong. But I just looked at this case where the chargers find a way of getting it done and the under hits on this one. And finally, we have the matchup that that made people were expecting a couple of weeks ago, but it's the bears hosting the defending Super Bowl champion. Philadelphia. Eagles. The eagles have been an absolute mess this season with Carson Wentz Inada line of with injury. You got Nick foles who couldn't look who can move the ball down the field to save his life to begin the year. All of a sudden has turned a light switch on and has been somewhat passable. At least Nick foles is still an average at best QB my opinion, and it can only play one system in terms of getting the ball out of his hands and vertically down the field. He can't do any other NFL systems. But for the purposes of this matchup, we have to consider the fact that every single wide receiver on the bears is dealing with some type of injury. And we may have Allen Robinson cleared to go. We may have Tele Gabriel to clear to go. But as it in Miller's banged up. You've got. Got a budget injuries. Among the wide receivers for the bears from catchy standpoint, you're looking at three Cohen because during Howard's, you know, he's a couple balls. But it's still not his natural natural position. If going off of the game tape, and you know, Trey Burton has been in and out in and out and in and out of the office of game plans week after week this season. So he'll go weeks at a time without catching the pass. And that's just the way it goes. Now, I looked this game. As a case where Phillies should lose this game. But I don't see enough out of the bears where they're absolutely planning on taking taking a this matchup and rolling on into the into the postseason. The bears come across as more happy that thing. It worked out this year. But they never really made a true commitment to the squad to improve the offense significantly with some digital free agents outside of Robinson and Burton now. At the end of the day. The bears are always going to hang their hat on their defense. But I have to say that you know, I really do see the bear struggling to put up a ton of points against philli. So this is the kind of match up where again, I would not be surprised if this was a twenty seventeen game. But the issue is that. From. Every metric the bears offense is so hot and cold that I would not be shot if Philly holds the bears Sunday, twenty points and at that point. It's a crapshoot because you know, Philly is going to try to push the ball down the field. You don't know if they're going to get penalty calls, and that's always the mic. So again, I would say look to see how the referees are calling pass interference mar because that's gonna play a big role as to how the bears were able to play their defense. So if it's getting called tie, you definitely could see some. Some concerns on the bear sideline as to what they should do next. Because again, I've seen Matt Nagy cost the bears multiple games this year for decisions that were head scratchers. But on the the whole folks are happy because the bears have been winning games this year. I just look at it. As more of a reflective talent. That's currently on the squad rather than the actual ad coach himself, but we shall find out as we progress further and to the playoffs because it is an interesting mix games, I have to admit, then, you know, even with making a making a case for these teams. You know, I could say that there is a path for them to each reach Super Bowl a gets difficult at times. But I I do feel as though you should have some competitor. Games throughout the playoffs this weekend. So we'll see how the games go today and also tomorrow. So in terms of the DFS lineups. Let's get into those quickly fit being a four-game slate. It's really hard to kind of mess around with the lineup. So you gotta have a kind of clear picture in your mind as to how you wanna go with certain rows because it is extremely limited given the player pool size this weekend. So on both draft kings fan though, I think the number one play a QB this week. We get weekend. Rather is Andrew lock, you know, I can't really find another excuse not to play him. He's eighty four hundred on fan dole sixty four hundred draft kinks. You know, the only other play you can really go with at and just say that value is you're you're gonna get more bang for your buck is trying to play Watson and see if the Texans can get a couple of big hitters against the colts defense, but outside of that, you know, those are the top two place the other the other guys, you know, I'll probably play a few lineups. What you Bisky, but those are just more differential shots just to separate myself for a pack a base off of the core. Bill that I have in mind more than anything else. It's it's. It's not indicative of. Where I'm getting value add to anywhere else in the lineup. So Accu be it's it's going to be concentration of that the Indy Houston game, and then a little side. Sideline a few sideline with Trubisky. But that's about it as a one off. But. Have running back. This is Zeki Lally week. I mean, you can get cute and try to fade Dc. But you know, odds are you're going to have to have Zeke in your lineup. He's eighty eight hundred on Faneuil draft kings. He should be running at around nine grant. And you know, it set it in forget, it, you know, I I was trying to find another way of going about it. The only other play you can try to do if you were due to premium player is Melvin Gordon as differential and fades Zeke by using Gordon instead and try to zig or other guys zagging. But I just think it's too cute of a play. If I was going to do that. I would rather just lineup of Zeke and Melvin Gordon and just pay up at running back because I there are. Some cheap wide receiver options to go with. So that's where I would be leaning towards from a fantasy perspective at the wide receiver spot, again just piling on from what I said earlier on the the over undertows the play here is t y Hilton in the Andre Hopkins so wanted to, but I'm going to be playing both of them together to me, it just makes a bunch of cents e-. You get more bang for your buck out of these two than pretty much any other combo on the slate today and use you hope for the shootout, but you know, realistically trying to play somebody's at our options. Yes, I I know you can play Amari Cooper. But you know. It's not exactly an easy place. So I could easily see folks fading Cooper. And I wouldn't have a problem with it. Just because I know that it's tough to kind of get their times. You know, he's he's going to run you sixty seven hundred on fan dole. And then all draft king. So Mark Cooper's certify hundred. So again, some of these price points, it's really hard dealing with some of the the receiver prices because I don't like key now in this week, the ravens secondary's very stout at it's going to be hard for him to get open. Early and often, plus, you know, Doug, Baldwin, even though he's been creeping up the ladder turfs of production at Disney, you know, that doesn't necessarily mean he's immediately getting offers something once ease at it doesn't mean Doug ball was going to be offered up a special kind of treatment from Russell Wilson. Just because you know from standpoint of Dallas defense, they're not gonna roll over any additional coverage to lifestyle lock. It's gotta be straight up play play defense and then have safety over the top. You know, it just doesn't come across. As though there's going to be any easy points front of wide receiver spot. That's why I would rather just pay up for Hopkinton Hilton. Because I know they're going to get the volume, and then you can go cheap with the likes of Dontrelle Inman KiKi not do. New even deandre Carter on the Texans. But you know, you gonna have to find money somewhere. And I just think that the best bought to do it is at the wide receiver position. Just because there's so many options there that are gonna be putting up points, but are near men pricing to make these builds work and obviously at the end. You know, you could you could say what you want about tight end. A it's just been an absolute mess this year and will continue to be. So I would just say, you know, plays a Zacher, and, you know, hope for the best because there there's now a whole lot else left. I mean, yes, you can do a dark throw on the likes of jig jar win. I mean Blake jar win. Or Trey Burton, you know, EIB. Ron's going to be popular to play. But I I just feel as though if you're paying up for culture, it's gotta be t y Hilton Nadi Brun, but you know, times could change it folks Jj their mind to that's that's recommendation. I would give you now in terms of defenses. I like both the colts defense and the Philly defense why because from a pricing standpoint, they're both extremely cheap of the colts our men pricing on the fan Doolan Yahoo. And I love their pricing. Just from the standpoint of it's it's a case where the Shawn Watson is playing behind the worst offensive line in the NFL this year, and they just see boatload of Saxe. At least two sacks game. They've allowed and. It's tough. Gaining credibility with a rep that is that it just more. Is just when you deal for an office line that bad. I in the though that type of reputation, you know, they're going to give up sacks or holding penalty. So I just look at it. As a case where you know, there's not a whole lot of downside to plane the colts defense this weekend. And it gives you a little bit more salary to work around with and brings some folks into. We'll see how that plays out as well this year. But the yeah, it's it's definitely a coming to head here. With somebody's matchups games. I really feel. So in terms of these DFS torments gonna be a case where it's it's a split pot. I I'm struggling to think of how someone's going to have unique enough lineup unless they just play one hundred and fifty lineups and just use lineup deviations between them hit the jackpot on one of these plays with a random player getting a touchdown. But. That's the way I kind of look at the slate. And you know, you ready her my pick. So we'll see how things pan out. But enjoy the games today. Everyone and have a good one.

So we can do that again but Brett Coleman a Houston Texans fan coming on to talk about the Houston Texans versus the chiefs. Brett. Thanks for joining me man. Thank you I feel like kind of marching to my own execution here. Not GonNa lie got about eight days to live. There's so much. Hope everybody is five hundred right now nobody's out ahead of anybody anybody yet. But here you are talking about your execution eight days before I mean the you know damn well, that US being ahead of the chiefs doesn't matter. I mean, what's what's the line on the game right now it's like ten. Generous. That's Oh Yeah. Okay. Okay. Well I mean, if we had D- Hop maybe. Yeah, that's fair. That's fair. Let's let's start with the last time that these two teams played. I know all these fans who thought. It was pretty bleak. The chiefs have a very storied history of bombing out of the playoffs in spectacular fashion and it sorted looked like the Texans were going GonNa. Run it up on the chiefs early. Described the roller coaster that you went through as a Texans fans jumping out to that lead and then watching it Sorta disintegrate Patrick Mahomes. When it was I, think the score was twenty four to seven. It was right after the chiefs first touchdown I, tweeted we'RE GONNA lose. A I've watched the chiefs all year long. I saw them in week two of last season against the raiders where they started out slow and then remembered like Oh. Yeah. We're the best team in the NFL. Let's do the thing that we always do in score thirty points and a quarter and that happened and I was like that's about to happen here because everything leading up to that twenty four to seven score or at least most of it was fake. You know we got we got the chiefs on a pump and go whoop de do you know there was a couple special teams mishaps like? It wasn't genuinely like we're out playing you. It was it was a few dice rolls that went Houston's way. It was a couple cheeky play calls. It was scrappy like you have to do that kind of stuff to beat the chiefs but I was like there's they weren't actually dominating like lining up talent for talent at dominating. which there's very few teams in the NFL that I think can actually do that to Kansas. City. Houston is not one of them. They did it earlier in the year, but you know pat on a gimpy ankle doesn't really count to me I think that was also tyreek first game back like it was again, it was on a pitch count. Town. The run game is not the same early wasn't the same at that time compared to what I think is going to be this year with C. H.. You know the chiefs defense was still trying to figure it out under SPAGNUOLO and the you know you as a chief defensive breakdown guy you know better than anybody that chiefs defense in week six, not the same as the chiefs defense in the playoffs like not even remotely the same as. Close as a matter of fact, Darren leave was still. LINEBACKER. Rally like. I. I. Knew The circumstances around that twenty, four, seven, one, hundred, percent fake. And I was like, yeah, we're GONNA lose, and then we did and I was not surprised at all. I I'll tell you what you are one of the few. Standing in the stadium there watching the game and trying to keep the faith because I to seeing the concepts develop in front of me for the chiefs offense and they were just a click off with everything that was happening there. But at the same time, there was these small part of me. That's a chief's Fan. Since you know birth that has watched this team just crap away every single playoff game in my lifetime that just kind of expected Oh man this is this is going to happen again, all travis I think also had like two drops on third and ten he did he did and Marcus Robinson had another big drought. kind of killed the drive like okay. Well, they're just getting that out of the way early. And then I mean. It's one of those teams that when they click, there's literally nothing you can do. And even San Francisco couldn't hold on for four quarters when they are clicking there is nothing you can do at all so you mentioned him earlier the video kind of win around and you guys had me on your bootleg football podcast, U. N. E. J.. Snyder it's great podcasts go listen to it but you had me on the day after because you had such a visceral reaction to the Kansas City chiefs drafting Clyde Edwards layer you were angry described why you were angry for people who may be missed that one so when EJ was down at my house shortly after senior bowl this was I think right before the combine. And we were just ripping through tape. You know and I I had I have like a couple of terabytes of like college players were kind of going through it for like four days straight and he he tends to save running backs for last because they're like candy to him and I was like, let's just let's just watch this one because I had seen the Lsu Alabama Game Probably Twenty Times at that point like you just got to watch this. You GotTa Watch this. and. Collided retailers the only football player that can make you take your eyes up Joe. Borough. And when you watch the Alabama game. He was the most dominant player on the field while being on the field, which emaar chase while being on the Field Xavier mckinney and borough, and Jefferson, and all these Bama guys to what he was the best player on the field and he murdered Alabama like I murdered Xavier mckinney on the goal with that Spin Move Oh my was I felt so bad for digs to him he was just bragging him. And we sat there just in a mix shock and disgust and we're like, okay, everybody loves swift. Everybody loves Taylor we get that we love them to. Our worst case scenario as football fans for where CLYDES GONNA go and we both looked at each other at the same time and said, Oh, God Kansas City. Because they had a need it running back you know, Kareem. Hunt was gone for a year at that point and we like Damian Williams. But we both looked at each other and said, you remember what happened when Andy Reid had Brian, Westbrook this is going to be worse and then it happened and I. I lost my mind because. Like it was worse for me than Jacobs Ijaz? A bears fan he has to deal with this once every four years I have to deal with it every year probably twice. And I look at the linebackers we have on the team like Zach. Cunningham. He's not covered him but archer mckinney Oh my God no, we have nobody can cover collided with Solaire nobody and I knew this was going to happen and I knew it was going to ruin our playoff chances before the season even started. And I'm still just again in shock and disgust that my nightmare scenario happened. We can't do anything about it. I. Mean He's a literal perfect fit for Andy Reid? There's Jerry's no player in the entire draft that fit Kansas City better than fight over to layer. Absolutely people said Henry Rugs. Henry whatever they're going to run for no matter who they the Marcus Robinson collided to layer. On an angle out of the backfield is uncomfortable. And they're going to do that ten times a game, and it allows them to run more inside zone. Some Damian Williams was not strong at and it sort of makes the run game a little less predictable. So it is going to be one of those situations. I totally understood where you were coming from a Houston Texans, fans. It was like that was one of the spots where. The chiefs were weak on offense and now all of a sudden that's gone like it makes everything that much harder on a defense to have to cover the plethora weapons at the chiefs already had. So yeah, it's just rough and it's funny because that was one of the picks that I liked the most out of any team in the first round and chiefs fans hated it hated it. Didn't want around one running back. That was all it was. There wasn't anything to do with Clyde it was didn't want around one running back and I mean to be fair with my draft analysts you know I I wanNA cornerback I wanted Christian Fulton. That's the dude that I. I would have been totally Christian Fulton and when you're looking at position importance. Yeah. Sure.

Know You said, you know you're marching to your execution. How do you feel overall about the Texans as a group this year? How do you feel like they're going to be able to compete in the AFC south strength of the schedule? You know everything that you guys have going on here a good team. They're scrappy team. Will they make the playoffs probably whether it's as a division winner as a wildcard because they're seven playoff teams. Now like you know they're going to be up there with Vegas Pittsburgh Cleveland in terms of kind of scrapping out for somewhere between the fourth and the seven seed I would imagine. They're not Baltimore's level. They don't have the speed the not in Kansas City's level. They don't have the speed The Patriots may honestly the Patriots Wildcard or I don't know what the hell the Patriots really are. But even I would say they're like evenly matched or barely under buffalo and it buffalo's another one of those things for like really team dangerous anybody you know any given Sunday. But by no means when I ever consider Houston a favorite for the Super Bowl, they need a lot of things to go their way like the things that led that twenty four to seven, and then they also need to be even better than that and like Bill Brian he's kind of an enigma because I think he's a good coach but a terrible GM and the GM. Parts of them gets in the way of the coach parts of him in not to go on a tangent but I'll give you a little something here lands airline big. Houston guy gave a little nugget that because O'Brien was so wrapped up in GM duties last year a lot of the Times he didn't even get involved in install to like Friday or Saturday and then. I know, and then he would come in and change stuff the day before the game and not to mention to sean was practicing with four string receivers 'cause. Hopkins was banged up sitting out fuller was banged up and sitting out stills getting veteran days. He was practicing with four string guys for game plan that we get changed the day before the game and then people wonder why they always started so slow like why the Kansas City game was such an anomalous because they actually started fast for once and I don't anticipate this arrangement of Bill. Getting involved in the game plan stages late I don't anticipate that changing for twenty twenty. So I still think they're gonNA start slow without Andrea Hopkins like, yeah. That's that's the big one there and I mean I totally agree with Bill O'Brien I think he's a fantastic offense coordinator I. think he's a great play caller watching him sort of figure out what Steve Spagnolo was doing early in that week six matchup. Go. To more twelve personnel exploiting the chiefs heavier slower linebackers, running kind of that that split zone look with therein infidels kicking out in the flat was just abusing, Derek. And they couldn't stop it. Darren fills had his best game of the year against the chiefs because they were doing that, and then the chiefs would shift and Hyde would get more touches inside the tackle. So it really was the perfect confluence there of Bill O'Brien torching what Steve spagnolo tendencies to that point were. So yeah, I think he's a phenomenal coach but yeah, he definitely has a big task ahead of him without Deandre Hopkins now bringing in Brandin cooks they're into the mix. It's going to be interesting to watch as an outsider when you look at Houston Tennessee who I think are the two teams that people expect to be in contention for the division, the most I tend to favor Tennessee. Because, I think they're they're built a little their organizational structures more streamlined for success in my. Yes. Got You. Yeah. Even though Houston I think top talent wise to Shawn's about a quarterback Jay still an elite pass rusher. You can look at what he did against Mitch last year as evidence of that, he's one of the few pass rushers that actually beat Mitch frequently. is still good like inside linebackers they're good at stopping the run inside even though the can't cover we lost reader, but we took blacklock still think they're okay. Defensive tackle reads a good safety. They have some good man corners terrible zone corners fuller is still a good receiver when he's healthy stills as good receiver when he's healthy the offensive line if they're healthy, really good like there's talent. I I would say more talent in Houston than in Tennessee, but in terms of coaching and organizational structure, which of the two things that I think translate to wins more often than not with successful franchises. Tennessee's better. Yeah. I I don't disagree with that. Yeah, and I think that's why people are so high on the Texans Year after years because you look at the talent on paper and you say, Oh my God the these guys should win a crapload of games because they have all this talent and they do I mean they still it's not like they're a bad football team by any means it's not. We're not talking about the chargers here that every year everybody goes Gaga over because of their talent on paper and then they can't put it together but it is going to be maybe a limiting factor in them being able to get over that Hump like you had said earlier. There's a reason why Andy Reid was so important for you guys because he's Andy fricken read. Yes, he is. He's about to get a bunch of free cheeseburgers now that he's got that ring. Let's switch to the game here looking at a matchup that you are a little bit afraid of in Kansas City somebody that you think might be able to exploit the Houston Texas a little bit. There's a very specific game planned. That you need to do to stop Kansas City's offense and it works, but my is it really hard to do and it is being able to. generate. Pressure on pats that he doesn't stay in the pocket while also having the speed to chase him outside of the pocket before he does that kind of role was right wizardry kind of stuff where he's looking one way manipulating a defendant throwing back across his body to travis was just hanging out on the far hash like. He's really really good outside of the pocket against zone defenses and he's really really good inside the pocket against man defenses. So what you need to do is you need to play man and then get him outside of the pocket. So it means lots of stunts making sure that your fast is guys are always out on the edge on those stunts so they were running. When I did the Mitchell Schwartz breakdown I kind of broke down a stunt in the Clinton playbook it's referred to it's easy which is the end going inside and the linebacker twisting outside you need to do that a lot so that you have your faster guys I e The linebackers chasing after pat on the edge rather than having a defensive tackle chasing after pat on the edge because if he's if he's got DJ reader running after him, he's got more time to look. Down, field and set up a better throw if he's got Cunningham running after him now he's got a make throw a little bit quicker and it might be a few feet off which is what we saw in the weeks game where he just barely missed tyreek in the corner of the end zone when they ran that easy stunt. So again, you need to need to be not afraid to play man coverage needed to be not afraid to blitz not afraid to stunt but really. It comes down to execution because the back end has to stick to their guys for those three seconds for those stunts to pay off. So there is a very clear game plan when you look tape when you look at metrics that has worked. But, it's really hard to do. They're going to try it. They're definitely going to try it. You know Lonnie Johnson's going to be Travis Kelsey. That Conley still going to be outside I would imagine looking at their depth chart imagine still going to be free safety roby still going to be outside nickel. We haven't heard too much about it. Probably GonNA. Be Vernon at first and then maybe John Reid. John. Reid. A better player, but that's just my love John Reid by the he's John Reid. My dudes. Yeah. Great. So like they have the horses to play man coverage, it's not like they're going to go out and lockdown dire economic those guys can do it. It's just it's all about execution, and if there's one team that punishes poor execution better than anybody, it's Kansas City. So we'll probably know eight minutes into this game if that game plan's GonNa work. I think. It's I think it's funny because yes that's exactly how teams have taken it to Mahomes and the chiefs receivers in the past they play man Sammy. Watkins is eventually going to get hurt potentially emitted into this game that's basically what it works. So if you can bracket tyreek hill and play good enough man on Travis Kelsey, you don't have the horses for the chiefs to really be man beaters and everything like that. We've seen and E- be reluctant to call man beating concepts that week six matchup was a prime example. Of that Yes tyreek was coming back they didn't have walk. INS. But they weren't dialing up those concepts because Andy. Reed. Thinks we're just going to run what we're going to run and he did and you saw what happened in that Texas Game Lions game similar SORTA deal just lined up and played man colts game. They live right laid man more than anybody in the League or fifty four percent or something like that. Absolutely, and they had the horses to do it on the back end kind of like the Texans do their. Question here who in that set up as you were going through the secondary. Who would you put on? Clyde Edwards Hilar-? Would you kick a strong safety down against him out in the flat you can't do. You can't do linebacker can't do it linebacker linebacker. So I'm assuming Lonnie's is GONNA be on Travis. Size, wise. I'm assuming that they're gonNA have Garin and Brad outside. So honestly. Let me know if this sounds weird. If the chiefs go out and eleven. Would would you use? Justin Reed. And swap him out for Murray and put Justin read as a quasi strong safety. Shadowing like, and this is only a third down situations. Quasi strong safety going out there with like a five corner dime with read solely being responsible for Edward to lay out of the backfield. I. Think that that's probably your best man on man matchup. I think the the issue that you might run into there is, are you going to have somebody trying top tyreek hill or you're going to try and count on Gary and Conley or brought roby to depend on where they put his sometimes they'll put tyreek in slot they will to hide him from that or if they wanna give them a little bit more space to get to the boundary if they line them up wide. I think Conley even though he doesn't have the speed of tyreek. He at least has the physicality I think to Kinda, squeeze him into the boundary but if they put tyreek in slot. And and you're running like Hawse or something like that where there's all the space in the world for him to just run around it. That's a problem that any team would have. Really sure. Yeah, it's not just the Texans. In that instance I'm thinking I do agree Justin Wreath probably the best match up to try and eliminate. Clyde Edward to layer on those angle route. Oh, I'm not I'm not even saying Justin Rey. Safety. Oh. You're talking about John Reid. To. Because then you just take off the field and then you're going five corners dime a John reads a willing tackler. He's a big enough guy to follow a guy like Clyde Edwards hilarious I see something like that. That'd be an interesting way for them to come out and by no means, do I want Murray on Clyde? I mean juice fans are very well aware how little you want Eric Murray on candid worth Allaire like saying I want Sorenson to cover Clyde. Okay. Good. Hey. Hey. Hey hang on. One of those guys has a ring. Let's go with a player or a match up that. You think that the Texans can exploit from Kansas City here. On offense I think they actually do. Do have some advantages. Kind of the same type of thing I don't think they have any linebackers that can cover to Johnson Day don't. I mean, well, we'll see you. Again but I don't know if he's Yeah. I. Really Start like maybe if they just bring him in on third downs in like a sub- package or something like that maybe. He's the only athletic linebacker they have they can do it. But again, we're not sure if he's actually gonNA play I don't necessarily think they have. Other than ward any corners that can really stick with fuller but against the same kind of thing with block insulin, how long you stay helping? But. If he does ward stick only to the left side does he move a he? Last year was only left side but he was actually lining up on the right a little bit and camp this year the first year that he came any lined up on the right as well. I think it's just gonNA depend it looks like the. Need is going to be the starter opposite him. So it's whatever side luxurious need feels most comfortable in word or kick over to the other side if they can get fuller on snead on that all day. Yeah I'm. Fuller is a savvy enough receiver that I think that he will kind of baptize. cheerios need a little bit by fire there. That's that's a little bit of a scary matchup against the same thing with tyreek. Only so many people on this planet run for two. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely, and I mean logistics needed fast and long but he's also this is going to be rap one in the NFL lineup against a receiver like will fuller that's a little bit scary. That's probably the thing that scares me the most as h chief's fan kind of see what that spot is going to be the other option is. Rashad Fin I'm Rishaad fitting does not have that speed he he may have a little more savvy with you know framing releases and things like that. Then the jury sneed does, but he does not have that sort of speed to be able to track will fuller. Yeah. I I would be very interested to see if they may be used tyron on the backs on third down and then leave one deep. Just to kind of protect the linebackers from themselves, I could totally see that happening but really it's it's the corners versus all this Kenny stills can still run brandin cooks is burned cooks, but at least getting receiver yeah, you know it's it's the speed factor for Houston that I still am not quite sure Kansas City can deal with and I think if they of take a page if Houston takes a page out of Kansas City's book and just says, we're going to run for verts thirty different ways. That can work for them, and then maybe they're only shot if they turn this into a shootout, but it's not like Pat Holmes? Isn't comfortable in the shootout. So I think either way whatever the over under for this game is bet the over the worst case scenario. Kansas. City is GonNa, cover it themselves but. I I would not be shocked to see Houston also put up a a pretty healthy points here. All right. We'll wrap it up with this and we'll let you get out of here game prediction here. What how do you see this going Casey wins by twelve? The question is. What's the actual score? I would imagine something like thirty, five to twenty three. Okay. I think Houston starts out slow as they normally do and then comes out blazing the second half. But I I just don't think it's enough. You know I could see I could see honestly this game being like twenty, two seven at halftime. And then ending up. Thirty. Five, thirty, five, twenty, three when pats like I'm Pat Mahomes I'm going to do my third quarter thing. A fair. That's fair. All right. I'll thank you very much coleman for joining me.

Know Your Enemy, Part 1: Week 3 vs. Texans with guest Seth Payne

"Today answers matter more than ever before. That's why IBM is helping businesses manage customer questions. With Watson Assistant. It's conversational AI designed to work for any industry. Let's put smart to work visit IBM Dot Com Slash Watson Assistant. Beautiful and we have a special guest as always for know your enemy. This man is a former defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans He now works for sportstalk Six ten in Houston Mr Seth Payne Seth. How are you doing tonight? Good is that can be watching the Texans struggle through their first two games I'm probably not as good as you guys all right now. But but I'm happy to be here. Yeah, like right off the top you guys must have piss someone off at the schedule makers getting the chiefs, the Ravens and the steelers arguably the top three teams AFC. Is there any talk about that right now in the the Houston. Sports world that people are upset that the schedule is hard as it is right I don't think. So I think because there's enough of there's enough consternation over Bill O'Brien's off season moves starting with the trade of Deandre Hopkins and everything else that came after that. I don't to say people are saying, well, that's what you get. But I think that people are more angry at Bill Brian Right this moment that look you trade it away De'andre Hopkins you you're given David Johnson twelve, million guaranteed you traded for Brandin cooks pay too much money to Randall Cobb. All those types of moves presumably were done to put you in the same category as teams like the chiefs and teams like the Ravens and. I I don't think anybody expected them to be as good as those teams yet but I think they were hoping that they might compete they just they haven't competed yet. It hasn't they've hung in the first half but the first drive of the third quarter has been miserable for the defense. Both of these last games and the offense just hasn't had the time really do make comebacks and they haven't showed much of a push to even. They even actually know what they're doing if they did have the time. Now. Through those first two games, of course, starting own to. Probably, the best start obviously say they do fall this weekend is already going to be that chatter of people calling for Bill O'Brien's head or. That talk begun already I think in. It was primed. The pump was prime for that just because O'Brien's been here for this is seventh season in I don't know if people even realize that. There's no reason they consciously think about it outside the city of Houston, but it's been seven years of hey. You're pretty good. You're doing. All right. You know the AFC south is week from yeah. It's it's gotten stronger, but it's still not the same is trying to win the AFC north, of course, her AFC. Role let's see. AFC YEAH AFC north But. It. In the playoffs or versus the good teams continually they get embarrassed and then fans feel embarrassed and you don't feel like you're taking a step forward. It feels like Marvin Lewis type situation and when he traded away the Andrea. No matter which way it gets justified or what stories get pushed out there that Jan wanted more money. Or the Deandra didn't practice enough the if the end of the day, they were a better team with the Andrea Atkins. He's just he made Shawn Watson a better quarterback. He's just such a House vote on any given blitz or whenever SEAN got into trouble. His outlet was also as primary receiver because Deandra was always open even when he's not open, he's still open. So there'll be an adjustment period and people are just not given O'Brien, the benefit of the doubt. He we saw I think we've seen the Andre. Hopkins. Value even with him going to Arizona and how Murray Looks Different Guy Lavar is just like way more confident. It's always such a big deal in the quarterback has that guy that they can just be like well, you know with all else fails just throw it over there and they'll make it happen. Yeah and You, know so far it's been two games and the San Francisco Game San Francisco's playing a lot of cover for which worked out really well in favor of De'andre Hopkins on, they're able to throw out of outbreak and routes him versus coverages that were almost I. Actually Kinda surprised that San Francisco didn't have a better plan for De'andre but at the end of the game. Would we see we saw of that game for San, Francisco hundred happens was wide open, and then there was another play. Last week were deirdre happens was wide open, and we we have not seemed the Andrea options wide open pillow pride offense in a long time. It's been increasingly bill. He gets a lot of press coverage because he gets safety help over the top of them teams just to vote all their resources to slowing down the Andrea Hopkins in so far it's two games into it kingsbury done a better job of getting the Andrei Hopkins Wide Open. I was looking at some of the next Gen stats on that Houston Texans offense align and what I came up. What came across actually is that they were given up the highest percentage of pressure rate throughout the entire NFL. The steelers defense since more blitzes than any other team by like by a wide vast margin and their blitz typically gets home. In. That same chart not the tops elite. Shawn Watson is GonNa be running for his life a little bit. It seems in this one How? How are the Texans going to have to keep him upright? It's a it's an excellent question. Which I had a really good answer for you. We talked about we were talking about the steelers a lot last week just getting ready for the Ravens because you look at the pass rush stats from last year and both those teams you know the Ravens would lead in either hurries or hits where the steelers were leading in Sachse. They both blitz, a lot, the steelers blitz more than the Ravens, and this'll be the frustrating thing and tell you this is what you might want to look for in the game. You're gonNA see instances where. The Texans offensive line will pick up a blitz properly in then for no good reason at all just like shoot themselves in the foot and somebody'll come off a block or ignore a Oh, my Gosh zone-blitz, his of his. Zone blitzes. Let's see. We've seen a center get beat by a linebacker who was faking dropping into coverage in. So the left and in the linebacker just just came. Laremy Tunsil the left tackle at one point. He just followed defensive end down into the opposite a gap and allowed the looping blitzer to to come around and get a sack or pressure onto sean. They've they've made some really boneheaded mistakes that we thought. They'd ironed out by the end of last season and you know the danger in the NFL of thinking. Okay. Well, Hey, they got better last year. So we'll just keep getting better this year. That's what happened with the offensive line for me Tunsil. At. Left tackle betrayed two first round picks for him. They've got a second rounder left garden. We've got a first rounder at right tackle They've got a second rounder who just got paid last year Nick Martin at Center. They spent a lot of resources on the offensive line and right now it looks like they're back to square one of the beginning of two thousand nineteen and it's that's been probably the most frustrating thing and it's very, very frustrating against. A team like the steelers I. Don't I. I wish I could come on here and talk a lot of smack to you guys about how steelers aren't that good. TJ. Watts overrated his brothers were. The steelers are really really good defense right now in the Texans, offensive line has been struggling it could be. It could be something like three years ago when Jaguars had ten sacks versus the Texans on opening day that Jaguars. Team I don't think was as good at rushing the passer as the steelers team is. That's how bad the Texans offensive line looks right now. You're saying they're having trouble with. They're having trouble with blitzes That's not a good sign. No and it's and it's not even blitzes sometimes it's just games just simple east E. T. stunts not ease where the tackle goes I. Know You guys know this but for your listeners Attack Goes I. The end loops around simple things like that where it's just a four man rush I for the life of me, I, can't figure out what's going on with Texans offensive line but they'll screw that up in such a bad way like that is it feels like a Christmas present to the defensive linemen usually games. When you'RE GONNA game that offensive Lineman you're, you're thinking I might work. If I catch these guys off balance or something. Maybe something you know if the quarterbacks flushes, it's an easier way to to maybe on the contain rush get the quarterback down. But yet you don't always expect them versus good offensive lines or competent officers lies to come clean that much. They come clean with regularity versus the Texans and look you guys have your just loaded with savvy guys along the defensive. Are Not just good players, savvy players, guys that know how to influence offensive lineman. So I think I think TJ and but depre-, and Stefan, and Hayward, and all those guys are probably the probably a good time game plan in for just like what trickery. Unfurl. The Texans? This? Week. Now, you mentioned TJ's name there. Of course, this is kind of the the Watt Bowl I guess the first time they've probably been on the field since they're little kids altogether I'm surprised this isn't a primetime game. It's one of those storylines and all the NFL eats up. But what are you looking for in this in the three brothers playing against one another you know? Jay's a lot older than the younger brothers, Derek and Tj. So this'll be the first time they've ever been on the field together in a football game and one of our local newscasts interviewed his their parents, this weekend and. Their mom I don't know if you guys have seen TJ in Derek mom much. But she's pretty funny. She's really charming and she was talking about maybe sneaking in wearing a security code or something like that I probably as a parent I think I'd probably prefer not to be there for for this but JJ. Jj obviously is four five years older than those two. I think they have a really healthy sibling rivalry in JJ is we've seen we've seen Jj really grow and mature from when he was working. He was all about social media you know and and I know it wore down people outside of Houston. Lot because he was just all about living that life and I think over the last few years since he's become the veteran guy on that defense, he's really turned into a genuine leader. He really cares a lot about the younger guys in. It's been cool to just watch him interest Derek Tj and blow them up and talk about TJ the defensive player of the year and have a friendly rivalry there on but JJ JJ's probably looking. As athletic and is I. Guess physically he's filter than he's been the last few years because this is the first real off season where I think he was completely healthy and he kinda re-engineered his body and he tried to figure out. Okay. Why am I getting injured so much he's missed. He's been a huge time in three of the last four seasons and he just wants to be healthy this year I think he looks faster off the the snap I think he looks more agile than he hasn't last year's and he's producing really well at two sacks last week he's got a ton of quarterback hits. I think. In terms of quarterback hits, I think I think jj or pressures. I think JJ's still down around twenty fifth after two games. Oh. Yeah. And then I see the steelers have three guys that are in the top six for the quarterback pressures at least NPF's at. So that's not bad. How how big how big do you think facing his brothers is going to be the JJ why do you think that's something that's going to get him motivated are we gonna see jj watt try to singlehandedly like beat his brothers in this game. I've been thinking about that and I'm trying to figure it out because you know like in any in any group of brothers and siblings whenever their sibling rivalry you there's always one that takes a little bit more seriously you know and and I'm thinking about like my own family and I don't know if you guys have older brothers my older brother is He's a bastard and like I feel like I feel like my brother would always WanNa take care of me but also it they always want to maintain that. Alpha position. So I. Think Maybe Jj even though you probably would never admit it JJ might have the most he might feel like he has the most approving this. Earlier talked obviously deandre hopkins big trae David Johnson's coming back from the other side. I really liked what we kinda saw in that first half against the chiefs I haven't I haven't really specifically watched him a whole lot after that but. What does he mean in this team and is he kind of returning that twenty, seventeen, two, thousand, sixteen form he he's shown flashes of it in the first game versus the chiefs you know when I watched the game at I live. My first thought was alright. The chiefs are the chiefs are. Trying to take away the deep ball and they're not playing a whole lot of the box and I, and I think maybe some of those big runs at the time I thought maybe they were not gifts but they're easier to come by and he ran into he had some nice runs in eight eight-man boxes when I went back and watched it the second. Time and I think in that first game versus the chiefs showed that certain pop explosiveness net ability to break tackles these on two thousand sixteen last week was the ravens was was a bit tougher and I, think a lot of it was as much on the offensive line is it was on David Johnson that Ravens. Front is just very, very solid. Versus the run, and they did a good job They did a good job really mucking it up for him. So he's somewhere I so far. I would say he's better than he's been the last couple of years I think he's got a chip on his shoulder in, and that's something that going back to when he was getting recruited out of high school. In Iowa didn't recruit him, you know in his own state, it put a chip on a shoulder in any great college. Grin and he went to Arizona and he had a little bit of a chip on his shoulder, and then he has that great two, thousand, sixteen season and I think he might be one of those guys. It's Kinda motivated by that and. You guys do it that that trade for Andre Hopkins the people weren't just upset that they traded away deandre. Hopkins. Zero upset. Victory Andre Hobbits and got back a running back who's got twelve million dollars guaranteed hasn't hasn't looked like he's deserved it. So we'll see I'd say he's one in one so far hit really good performance in week one kind of disappointing last week. I think steeler fans remember him most for the Arizona game last year where he? Caught a touchdown over Terrell Edmonds Oh. Yeah. They got the most fans. have. They still have their hackles up for a trial because of that one. But he he is actually done well against the steelers and Duke. Johnson is backups very similar player who also had. been a very reliable player when he faces the steelers. And this season Melvin Gordon had touchdown saquon Barkley had a big play out of the Backfield Did you think that the offensive game plan where they have? Kind of. Gotten both running back the other running backs receivers. Has. Shown that it's working out for Houston. Do you think that's developers that still growing I think it's going to be a work in. You know they traded for Duke Johnson. Last year we never saw him really used as receiver as much as we'd like. They. Really. Do want to do more of that and especially I think to take some of the heat off to Sean and as part of its onto sean to you know sometimes just John is so greedy in a good way for downfield action. You know 'cause he's he throws a beautiful deep ball. He's got a lot of speed out there and he wants to push the ball downfield. Sometimes he stays on his reads too long or he's still trying to to make a big play when he needs to check down. So the check downs are one part of it, and then I think in the in the swing the screen game, the short passing game to. Running backs and tight ends. He's made progress. They're you know he used to just use the hold onto the ball all the time. Now he's got more judgment about when to hold onto the ball when to go to the easy short route and he's getting rid of it on rhythm more quickly. So I think you're GONNA see a lot of that in the first game when Duke Johnson was healthy. We saw several snaps of both Duke and David Johnson and a backfield. So that's something you WanNa Watch for and they ran some they ran some interesting stuff out of that they're going to try to use deception within tried it as much speed on the field possible. We got a super chat here from one of our fans west Hickok five dollars and a tip jar and ask Seth how do you see the Houston secondary matching up against our wide receivers I would say what mostly the new events coordinator Anthony Weaver has been trying to do so far is limited to big plays and in this might be the first time. I've ever covered a team or been on a team where they're almost saying, hey, were bend with dope break defense and everybody's cool with it because the defensive backs, the cornerbacks are just like a revolving door of uncertainty and. I think Anthony's been doing really good job of playing more Zona series trying not to expose those guys too much too many men demand. Situations Bradley, Roby's The guy that will probably get a big chunk of time on Juju. Smith Schuster, he's the guy that's best in man coverage for them but they've been. Banged up, we're just kind victimized at times by some of the guys that that are just frankly either young or vernon hargreaves is out there huge disappointment in Tampa but he's a former first rounder Gary Conley former first rounder they traded for last year he's on the injured reserve and is hopefully going to be on that short term injured reserve. They have this year, but it's GONNA be. It's GonNa be a whole lot of zone in a whole lot of just trying not trying to limit juju Smith Schuster or the older new kid I'm blanking out his name there that. Pool Yeah Yeah So nothing in allow mixed coverage now. The. The thing that the Texans Defense has not done well so far is turn the ball over trae turnovers. So I'm watching you know Rothlisberger these first couple of games and you see the big time throws jail. So see some of the rustiness showing through in potential interceptions, the the risky balls that he through last week. With the Texans playing more zone this year than they have in the past I. I know they've liked to be more opportunistic like the break on some of those balls i. think that's really the Texans. Only chance of winning this game. This week is if the steelers mess up the turnovers, if ben throws a couple of Aaron Balls or if they cough it up, then then the might have a shot. Yeah and that that is definitely one of those things that's I. think we were rebound on a weekly basis with that gunslinger back there. Yeah, but some. One of the questions that we can ask everyone that comes on is if you could pluck one player off the steelers roster that fits best with your own team and we we typically get the same answer so far curious you take on the Texans. Are you getting a lot of TJ Watts yes. Okay. Yeah. Okay. It's not that that's too easy plus. Frankly I don't look bill. O'Brien it's easy joke. O'Brien's GonNa Trade Jj Watt for seventh-round or a bag of chips for something this week I look I know the steelers are as loaded as anybody else in the League on Defensive Line because I forgot to mention all the while earlier there's no reason for them to trade for JJ WATT put. There's a there's a small part of me. That's terrified that Bill O'Brien's GonNa. Trade. Jj Watt to the steelers and the will be like the best audition ever Jj Watt So I won't I won't say Tj I to I love that. I love that defensive line. Let me go I would say, let's say juice Schuster just because. Willfuller, and this is something you guys WanNa Watch for two will fuller has been really really good. But he's been really really injury prone in last week was really curious. He didn't get any targets in the game and he was never listed on the injury report. They never said anything about it, but they massage has hamstring the whole time. So I and I it was strange because there are a couple of times in the game even where fuller was wide open in China name it has look look as way and you know that's his favorite guy right there. So. I don't know if willful, there's going to be one hundred percent for this game just because whatever he has these hamstring issues tend to linger and I wouldn't be surprised if he goes out, I'd love to have Juju Smith Schuster opposite of Brandin cooks and I just like I like Juju Smith Schuster attitude. I like the way he's handled everything especially with all the with all the drama with Antonio Brown and unless there was something I missed was Joe did you do not handle that at all? Well, there local stories. I know he he He was always always kept everything positive. We've covered the wide receivers running backs, the offensive line for the the defense. One thing, I, noticed watching the game against the Ravens is. Your tight end. Yeah forgot his name because I'm terrible things Aitken's Maki- Gordon. Yes. Like moving him around. He said he doesn't tend to I I looked at it. Bet He's out in the slot, but they keep him in tight. They move them around. They do a lot of motion with him and that is something the steelers are having trouble dealing with is when teams have receiving running backs and good receiving tight ends we can't. We can't deal with both of someone's going to be open Tell us about Achim Akins is a nice story He's a kid that's he's very athletic I think he's gotten better every year he's been here and he's improving on his blocking. He's still not there yet. But that's the modern NFL P-. How many good blocking titans are there I think he needs he's getting to the point where he's competent enough right there they'll. They'll use him with a lot of backfield motion they have a nice little. RPO package that you WANNA. Watch out for where he'll come across the formation and sometimes it's because he's kicking out the Defensive Andhra outside linebacker on a run place other times he's just going out and being part of a boot package with Shawn Watson in that's one way that O'Brien and Tim Kelly be offensive coordinator I think trying to get to Sean on the move without risking too. Much. Injury is by enhancing the boot package getting them out of the pocket thrown this rpo to Jeremy Hawkins. Than Darren fells the other tight end. There'll be one level further and they've had some success with that and they just have to keep adding wrinkles to it though they'll run a version of it for week or two, and then throw out in different wrinkle Bell they've. Done. Some throwbacks at times like throwbacks to Jeremy Aken, Jordan Akins. So He's definitely got you want to watch out for and out also say I think likewise, the Texans inside linebackers have not been good in coverage at all. So tight ends running backs it's a it's an opportunity area for the for the steelers Zach Cunningham just got paid. He's very very fast comes up and make some great plays in the run, but he's still playing like a young guy in pass coverage. Now Jeffrey as you were saying we, we've talked about basically every offensive player except for the one important one here to Shawn Watson. The roster around him of course, like you have the quarterbacks in the NFL. The young guys Patrick. Mahomes, is Lamar Jackson's John Watson. I think his name is really right up there with those guys the roster around him though do you think the talent around him is good enough for to Shawn Watts to elevate his game at bring home NFL MVP like. His peers right now I think that if the offensive line gets their act together, it could be and I also think that it depends on just what Bill Brian and Tim Kelly do with the play Colin I think there's a perception around the league that they haven't gotten the most out of the Shawn Watson and I think that's fair and I think. Sometimes it is. It's the Shawn Watson himself because he's still a young quarterback and I kind of look at the timeline of Russell. Wilson and try to I try to check to Shawn Watson Against Russell, Wilson, 'cause Russell Wilson, it took him a few years to really make that transition into being a genuine professional NFL quarterback That would do all the stuff pre snap that would make all the adjustments that that would re coverages as well as he does now and I think to Sean is getting there i. think that he really understands the concepts he understands what? Defenses are trying to do too. He's had some really bad games. I think the the biggest difference between him last year in a few of the other top quarterbacks was to Schantz. Bad Games were really bad in when teams like the panthers showed stuff in kind of muddied the picture for him he didn't respond well to it. He rebounded from each of those games really well and I think he learned lesson. So I think this is a pivotal year for him. He's just he's got to get some protection. You know he used to be responsible for a lot of his. sacks and a lot of hits. It's not the case as much anymore there's just quick pressure in the backfield in when I really worry about is they're starting to be those moments where man did he have to pull the doubt ball down data early you know okay the yeah that that guy at defensive end was coming free but he could have stuck in there a little bit longer. So I worry that he might begin skittish on pretty still capable of doing all those incredible things. It really is a matter of just the offensive line getting right and then the receivers. All these new pieces that they brought in. There've been too many instances of David Johnson or various receivers running the wrong routes not being there as the outlet they gotta get that hammed up real quickly, and then I think it could be a really good year Sean because he's got a lot of speed out there I mean there's Brandin cooks ran and cook started to show up last week and he averaged nineteen yards per reception. If they can just hold the line a little bit longer allow brandin cooks to get free, then they could start putting up some crooked numbers. Awesome I. I have two more questions before We'll let you get out of here. I'm sure Jeffrey probably has another as well. I if I can steal the first one here. How are the Texans winning this game? Okay it with a lot of turnovers like we said in that it doesn't have to be ridiculous but I think that the steelers. Even just especially the first half of last week's game. You can see where Ben isn't quite there. Yet I mean I'd like I'd he can make the throws, but he's not doing it consistently to see some of the miscommunication. So where they're just they look like a team that's still working third quarterback into the flow of things were the last two teams. The Texans faced were just they picked right up where they left off last year So there's that the other side is offensively. I think that they're going to have to hit some shop place and there are some instances in the ravens game last week where they used Max protection. Texans used Max protection. They picked up a blitz and one guy got being pass protection. Brandin cooks would have been wide open downfield for an easy touchdown, but just the guy got physically blitzed. Physically dominated on a blitz if they can reverse that and just have one guy, knock it beat on somebody shot plays I think they'd have an opportunity there I'd say they gotta be plus two in the turnover margin in if the Shawn Watson hits to shop plays, then they got a shot of winning this game. It's GonNa take some big games or big place. Jeffrey got anything else. I knew I know he's he we're we're short on time here I. got a couple more minutes but yeah, could go for. Before we get out of here, I, love to know your game prediction your final score prediction on this one. Okay. This'll be the first one is I was thinking through this earlier. I'M GONNA say that The Texans Defense Despite the points allowed they've actually done a better job than it might look on the box score given the tools they have to work with. So I don't think it's going to be as high scoring game as all Texans fans fear that it will be a but I don't think the offense is going to be able to get much moving against the. Against the steelers if the Texans win this game, it might end up being the variety of the two thousand and two Texans victory where the Texans had I think it was forty seven yards of offense in the one the game. Yeah. We had a bunch of turnovers team. I was on that team that was one of the weirdest games I've ever played him. Shout out to the two kids in the visitors. Warm up endzone who were some of the best hecklers that I've ever heard the they spent like ten minutes just dogging me and a few other guys on the defensive line and it was it was good quality stuff. It was like really hard not to just bust out laughing. So if the if they happen to be listening to either probably like forty five years old with kitchen everything I it's going to be that kind of game where it's a it's it's a whole bunch of turnovers for points potentially. So I will say that's they're going to compete I'll say steelers twenty, seven Texans Twenty one. Not Too Shabby Jeffrey, and get points predictions in the second half Seth's. Thank you so much for your time. We really appreciate it and. Again just. Thank you. Hey, my pleasure man, I'll tell you honestly See how kiss up at the end instead of at the beginning the I played for the Jaguars in the AFC central's we played the steelers twice a year and that was always my favorite place to play is just like you go Heinz field in the cool thing about it is that it's just it's all football you know it just it feels like you're playing in. It feels like you're playing in a cold northeastern city like where the people know their sports and it's intense environment and it's just really the at grew up in Rochester New York SAWS I. In relatively in the area and just up really respect respect the fan base and just have a great time on Sunday Gus. That's awesome. Thank you so much again. Thank you. That is Seth Payne Ladies and Gentlemen Ten year NFL veteran not really every day that you talked to a guy that's been in the League for ten years.

Chiefs-Texans Opener Recap: Fantastic debut for Clyde Edwards-Helaire (Football 9/11)

"What's The podcast sports daily NFL podcast I'm will Brinson I'm your host and football. Here it's calm. It showed up it happened. It was thrilling it was. I have met expectations. It was something it was here and the chiefs whipped up on the Houston Texans thirty four to twenty in the twenty, twenty NFL season opener to recap, and as we will every Thursday, every Monday and absolutely every Sunday night joining me or job reach from his. Household Abode in Nashville Tennessee and Ryan Wilson who's been thrown out of his house by his wife and has rented a small four by four room with a cot in Stanford. Connecticut Studio. You actually on CBS sports HQ, which for those that don't know and you should it's our twenty four seven streaming sports network fantastic content, excellent minute analysis, player news conferences, br gambling information. If you're not watching it, it's free. Go check it out. You can see Wilson Recap, the Games all the Games, the NFL Games on Sunday night with air conciliates there and our studio in Stanford Connecticut we will have I'm sure he PRISCO will be on I might be at halftime Sunday games I'm sure I'll find out like five minutes before if I'm supposed to be on but I did it every week last year is a good time and John Breaches constantly peppering the airwaves over there should go check it out if in the event that we have a show will let you know. You've ever GonNa show sports you. We'll tell you then you can help us double up. Whoever's ratings might have been in the previous slot Anyway football happened thirty, four, twenty breach. Did. Give me. Give me a grade. One to ten scale. How did it meet your expectations reload disappointed was it just two now for you having got football back where it fall for you? Well, first of all, I, hope any read had a chauffeur drive him home because that mask was he was so foggy I. Don't know how he did anything out of how was calling plays how do you feel if you're the Texans defense eighty readers basically blinded by his mask and the the cheese still put up thirty four points I would give it Brinson a solid, ten, ten, the highest ten, the lowest well we. Have these weird scoring systems. The spinal tap grading scale. So you can go up to eleven. All right and I'm going to go with twenty, thirty four because that's how many points the chiefs scored. I mean it was it was great to finally watch football. In All this I think for the past week everyone. All we were talking about was there's no preseason reason. This is going to be a sloppy game. Everything's going to be ugly passing to be overthrown. No chemistry with receivers and quarterbacks especially in Houston where we did see a little bit but you know John Watson got off to a hot start but I, actually thought it was a pretty solid football game. All things considered so. I'd give it a ten slash thirty four. I would push. Push back a little bit like I think it was kind of sloppy. Different, was it this week one in every other week one the last twenty years. Not much. A little perhaps cleaner. Now, part of that is the crowd not affecting the I. Think it only six flags in this game. Defect. Maybe. Yes. Maybe Roger Goodell said don't throw the flags mainly clear. Clear. What's like Blake? Blake didn't WanNa take his mask off. So he's like, yeah. Four, maybe six flags bought a sponsorship for the game and the League agreed only throw six flags. They did. This is the first I'm here about six flags. Usually parts are very popular right now. They've got lots of cash to spend. People have been hanging out all summer at six flags over Georgia. To vomit coaster what ages single killer part is killing it. But every every other part is not all right silica. Into each team but I think it would be remiss if we didn't start with the star of the show actually we're putting out to by the way chiefs minus nine and a half one pretty easily if you were the contrarian Douchebag who thinks you're smart taking the Texans because nobody wins eight point spread last year's bike me you lost your face, the Texans the Texas had a chance to cover a couple of times and it felt like they were gonNA, steal it through the back door it really didn't think so. I. THINK AFTER THE FIRST QUARTER I've game felt like it was over what would you are wagering on? You didn't you weren't you weren't. You weren't thinking like because if you had the chiefs minus nine and a half when the Texans score that go first garbage time touchdown, and then before this version, you're like Oh, my God figures two-point conversion. Stop they're just GonNa down and score a touchdown. The over fifty three and a half, which is the closing number, and this is kind of interesting the over fifty three and a half hit but the opening under of fifty six. That's sort of a nightmare for Vegas is as bad as bad as things can be for Vegas in the sense that if you took the initial under and then with the line crash, fell all the way down to fifty two and a half on on Thursday afternoon. You. Could have gotten a nice little window and hit both bats and it only happened because Andy Reid was hell bent on scoring. He kept running clive over to layer into the into the goal and finally kicked a Harrison Buckfield goal ten straight games for Kansas City where they have now covered the last time they feel to cover Ryan was a super bowl. No wrong. I know the answer I live in Nashville Tennessee and that's where the game happened. Right Patrick Mahomes Ryan that'll be known as the Super Bowl. Is Not ten games. Most Games don't count job but. That's right. Breaches credit. We can against the Tennessee titans when. They pull out that Miracle Win, and that was a long field goal involved. Aj Brown sort of took over thirty, five, thirty, two as mahomes first game back from injury. And obviously, she's favoring that game and they lost by I will say if you did bet the over at fifty three and a half the man, you should be thinking that the over hit is Armani. Watts. Yes. He recovered the onside kick return to inside Houston's twenty. If he had just fallen on it that she's probably just run out the clock, there's no more points when. They run out the clock because it was a layer broker run for a first down that setup, the goal line attempts so like I. in fact, if you have chiefs minus nine and a half, you also want to thank our money watts because if he if he just drops down, I don't think Andy Reed's passing the ball. They're I think they're running Clyde Larry three times I think wants or money broke that of finish off Houston's hopes of trying to like have A. Wonderful. So he goes down and this is completely. He goes down I don't think the chiefs throated as you said so and. The time out. So. You're down thirty, one to twenty the chiefs punt the Texans get the ball back and then they go down and just kick a field well, as quickly as possible because that would lead to one score and while also covering the spread. So it Armani watches you're the man of the the unsung hero of the over under it also. Like betting NFL adjusted betting sports in general is just Like like like. If you had that she should the right number and you eventually want I think the Texans came out and scored I Patrick Hall of South, Fancy Performer Twenty Six points wasn't at twenty two clive ever had nineteen and David Johnson had sixteen. The crowd fifteen, thousand, nine, eight, hundred, ninety, five, they were pretty. Hey let me ask you this because I didn't have the volume on in the studio the start of the game where I saw some some twitter. To that minute, we'll get that I. Do, now. Either way. into the crowd. So what happened was? The. Come out and they they came out on the field and they multiple songs song the anthem etcetera. Today kneel during the anthem they did. One personnel during the one guy. The Houston Texans were not present during the anthem they stayed in the locker room. There are a lot of guys who I think we're planning to kneel and they all decided that we'd better off to stay in the locker room. Day came out afterwards been everybody met midfield and locked arms and a show of unity eighty read Patrick Mahomes Shawn Watson by the way apparently are very close. In kind of becoming good friends and believe they're gonNA, see a lot of battles. This should we build rockets John Watson's way and they linked arms and the crowd booed them. Now presumably the. On the audio I don't think so okay. But it's hard to determine exactly what else they would have been doing I think the crowd was doing. What they thought was like I, don't think they were booing racial unity because that would be very weird thing to do. I think I. Think they were. I think it was probably you need abbreviated midwestern people booing the idea of protesting the national anthem, which is not actually what's happening to the doubt. They could actually doing that they're delaying the start of football which they've been waiting for people all the time now. To take away the benefit of the doubt they then they didn't loss into the Tomahawk Chop. So you know not green not a great look. At Chris Collins worth it was a weird scene when he when he said something goes I how how I just want to say that I, stand behind these players one hundred percent. Now listen football and it was like okay. Short on purpose or did somebody tell you not like somebody tell you not to say something but you felt like you had to say something is a weird little of Al Michaels had nothing to say To do is collins or slide. So he was just office game to start off thinking or senate, and then he was in this like like. Like. Made this little like weird face like he's maybe it was in response to the I. Don't know but I don't know. I. Think you would have to ask someone who was at the game because I thought it was tough to tell on TV and I absolutely. They could've been doing the unity that is absolutely a possibility running your. I mean fans boo whatever they want when they've been drinking. When you're out there you hear somebody else do all of the sudden you want to sort of doing you right now I would start doing billings contagious. That's just what happens when it will say what someone was inebriated and pick the steelers to finish last in the division. Anything can happen I. Look if you WanNa see me. Do this podcast. GO TO YOUTUBE DOT com slash pick six you can watch me. Some Wild Hills Pinot noir by shouldn't shameless is less than a bottle. So to real quick to. It it's also possible that. Fans were annoyed that the chiefs were interlocking hands with the Texans. I also read a couple tweets that there were people running around and doing things during supposed to be a moment of silence and people are annoyed by that. So. There's a bunch of theories. None of our good. Just don't boo during a moment of silence. How about that? Just be the moral of the story here and there was also like it wasn't clear to the broadcast team into NBC what was happening? And so I think probably obviously, not very clear to what was happening to the player to to the fans who were there like they were like we're being told this is maybe what happens and then we're going to get some for Paul I. I think. tweet and every to read. Okay, you want me to mahomes being down there I honestly didn't hear a lot of booing. I've seen a little bit of the videos after we want to show unity and share we were going to come together and fight the good fight and we hope our fans have supporters like they do in the game. Every single day adidas also aired multiple commercials with Patrick mahomes talking about unity and seeing a lot of good things and so there was A. The the VIBE. Was Ever present throughout the game with intermittent. Republican Democrat presidential campaign ads, which by the way then some spice to that old thing polity wants these things are pretty intense man like I'm not GonNa try to talk politics at both sides are like cranking it up to fourteen jj watt definitely thought the fans were doing the moment immunity. Sarah, his quote real quick was the moment of Unity I personally thought was good I doing during that moment was unfortunate I don't fully understand that. There is nothing other than two teams come together to show unity and that was from James Farmer TV. So he obviously thoughts following. On twitter. Yes. So he obviously, the fans were doing the moment you think maybe it was the Texans offense pre booing bilberry. Football we did. I mean look it's part of the conversation that's going to happen around the NFL this year and and sports in general not politicize it. I tunes reviewers were just telling you what happened. But. Yeah the bill. What's the bigger story here in terms of the running backs that the chiefs drafted the next superstar running back and Clyde ever to layer with their first round pick and he went absolutely bananas and Look Great. Four Kansas City running for a total of one, hundred, thirty, eight rushing yards on twenty five carries and one touchdown. It really could have been two touchdowns or even three touchdowns. Along a twenty seven yards, he was fantastic at three. Or was the story that Bill Brian is hell bent on justifying his trade of Deandre Hopkins. Ford David. Johnson. and was GONNA feed. Him Forty Times a game when he's out losing even when he is losing by seventeen points what's the bigger story here? Ryan. I think it's cloudy. Allaire. By the way, clay was the statuette obviously, very impressive. He was targeted at one time in the passing, which is quite twice actually. Very unseat. But I'm sure that will change. So something worth noting the chiefs at least the first three quarters of so played a lot of six box to deep safety. So ideally, they were happy letting them run the ball that she the vets were. Sort of blew up in their face saint the Texans played the Texans setup on defense designed, and this is where eighty radars chest like gets you in chess they said of a defense designed to be like, Hey, look. You throw deep on us. We're not leading tyree Kilgore's. Yeah and but the chiefs responding to bounding the ball down their throats yet by thousand clergy cares basically. So other teams make copycat that. But at the end of the day that she's still got thirty four points so that that's the math you have to do. That's more impressive meeting David Johnson I think David Johnson blew my doors off in terms of how well he played because I had very low expectations. I think is over under seventy nine and a half a total yards he he got past that. Every seven rushing yards and thirty two maybe he could include a pretty. So that's good news. The Texans meanwhile have about twenty seven other problems to work out. The two possessions that you're referring to. So the chiefs I possession eight, twenty, one yards and a punt, and by the way, I'm to sort of tell something out of school here but I wanNa make fun on for it. To extract as I mentioned all the time with people escape and Jamie Eisenberg in another former coworkers. Clouds'll layers I e carries we're not. We're not great. They were lied about of a single backer like an iphone or something, and we just text repeat. Tentative. Like what I mean it's three carries. He's he's like I don't know if he should be the first pick anyways fantasy draft. We spent the entire night just beating 'cause like every after that to layer it was just it was the opposite of it maybe he didn't. I. Don't think Peach Wrong. He wasn't attacking the hall or very comfortable. Then they'd sort of shifted formation. Got Him into spots like shotgun runs and draws enemy he was he was popping the whole left and right he was cutting. He was moving. He looked he looked like a Brian Westbrook look like a little Shawn McCoy type of Maurice. Jones. Drew I think a Lotta people compared him to and all that checks out and For me I think it's a bigger story that Clyde over two layers. Awesome because. The chiefs upgraded offense somehow the the best offense in football and other even better and these two drives on after that eight play one driver they punted they go eleven play seventy, five yard touchdown that is demoralizing and in sixteen plays eighty, six yards. Nine. Minutes and four seconds off Texans Punt for another touchdown and take a fourteen seven lead as a longest drive of Patrick, mahomes his career and the Texans defense was most places ever had in his career. For. A touchdown drive and the Texas defense was absolutely gassed at that point and you just felt like the only way Houston could respond was to crank it up and turn the shootout and let the on Watson Cook and instead they just kept running Johnson. So that's not a possibility. Do that because. Bill O'Brien's handcuffing that offense Brian, was in midseason forum tonight. That's the thing that impressed me. We had a pandemic shorten offseason and somehow that man did not miss a beat and starting with the fourth and four on their third possession from the fifty yard line. That's absolutely cowardly. I think anything over four and five. I'm not really GONNA fight but you're playing the chiefs in Kansas City. After they scored. Fifty one whatever straight points on you in that playoff game. So you know they could easily outscore you and you punt it from fourth and four at midfield, and then we're the cheap suit go down straight score touchdown at that point, it was game over bridge. Do you know remember I was actually watching the rewatching the week six game where the Texans went into Casey last year in one fourth and three late in the fourth quarter about the thirty eight yard line on the side Billy Oh Brinson goes for it. They get it they win the game. So he may argue Miller's congressman tonight. Well, we didn't have preseason where there's new. I, think you're sort of shoot yourself and I say one last thing Brenston before you follow up A. Here's the Texans of game plan which I don't think anyone would our bridging what hanging up scratching my beard? Okay. So the Texas game plan and no, one would have any issue with I would imagine a three hours before the game we were GonNa, make the chiefs Ali's experienced youngest player, beat us, and he literally beat them like like trump I mean not much tyreek. We saw Kelsey a little bit early petro home was good but he wasn't like lights out patching my home. So he was a little off for sure markets dropped two touchdowns in early in the first half. So let's do. Does and he actually dominated. The offensive line. Was a monster. Removing the Texans off their spot jj watt was kind of a non factor for most of the game, and that's hard to do for a perfectly healthy jj watt. and. Two quick thing. To the running the ball all the time we're getting my fun fact of the podcast right now Clyde Edwards Allaire. He Ran Ball what twenty five times I think the chiefs ran the ball thirty four times of the game. Here is your fun backed. The chiefs ran the ball thirty or more times zero times last season and they've already done it in the first game and honestly watching the chiefs offense on Thursday night it really felt like any kind of went vanilla. He just said, you know what? We're going to give the ball to the rookie until the Texas lowest down and if they do, we'll let pat throw the ball a few times. If they don't, we'll just going to keep feeding him like. He, he couldn't see. Just, keep handing the ball off and Pat Patrick what man we can we? Want to record a few. Mean there's nothing funny about masking all and all this stuff but like the facial thing and like it was like at first the first year, he was like just fogged up around his mouth where he was calling the place but. Look like like some sort of the bad guys in Star Wars. It's stormtrooper mask. It was so fog that it was like borderline. Paik. Your Buddy Munich actually the funny tweet about she said by the end of the game that facemask looks like the person who's batter getting zoom goal. Get it and make them out. So. Homes have just one passing attempts over twenty yards. At Halftime Sixteen Pass attempts sixteen rush attempts the chiefs a breach points out. They were they set the record for fewest rush attempts per game by a super bowl champion. This is a team that did not run the ball. Any always pass the ball sixty percent of the time. I really think that. and. Maybe this maybe this factored into their drafting over to layer because they drafted him in the middle of a pandemic was hey, like we need we we're going to have to be a little more balanced a little more simple out of the gate and I've been saying this. I feel like I've been saying this I mean, maybe maybe I just say so much. That nobody hears it. But like teams that simplify things and run smart team to simplify things and run the ball ton anybody WHO's trying to be complicated with an NFL offense out of the gate in twenty twenty with this, all season is going to struggle. You're not gonNA just come out of the gates firing on all cylinders with the passing game the homes was off. His receivers were on the same page and how could they be? They're not gonNA get there until probably like October at this rate. has made maybe too bad throws only. Bad but they were they were like he missed a couple of guys and. I mean, they took away tyreek Hill and they. Sort of tried to nullify Travis Kelsey for the most part. So they were forced to use Sammy Watkins into more -cause Robinson, and they they weren't on the same page to Paulo Week one Sami showed up baby don't think any Sammy Watkins and Mahomes was on the same page as Damarcus Robinson Marcus Robinson just wasn't reading the book he just. Ryan mentioned the two touchdown drops I mean that was ugly strikes. I'm not blaming Patrick Mahomes. He's. Thirty two hundred eleven yards and three touchdowns, but it was very clear. Is what he has been sharper in the way he's played. There's no doubt about it for sure he's been sharper and I just think Andy Reid underst- understand that he's GonNa win a little differently for the first month or so of the season and I think also I heard breach point on HQ on Thursday afternoon eighteen to twenty two starters returned for the chiefs. The Texas meanwhile, trade deandre happens running back. So. The taxings? Attack since. Failure Brinson. We'll tell you what Bill Clinton did wrong after the break.

Okay. So the Houston Texans finished with twenty points. And I gotta say I mean whether you're on twitter or you're texting with your friends or or slack chat whatever it is. Everyone on the planet except Bill Brian is wonder why the hell they? Wouldn't stop rolling the football it was unbelievable. I wrote down in this in in our run housing. What is bill? Ryan. During his game plan, he's running the football Johnson down seventeen in the second half three times and then punting, and then he gives you try to get an extra snap before the third quarter down seventeen in the second half. They had five or ten seconds where they get a playoff and just tried to get the plane just keep it moving and get some and when they actually got temple, it looked like the team was operating well, will fuller was begging for to get open on a deep. Shawn. Watson the offensive line was very good but it felt like this was a I'm going to show you how good David Johnson is game that started out well, and then backfired for billing Brian. Yeah. Here's here's what I'll say real quick with twelve minutes left in the third quarter to show are in the fourth quarter twelve minutes left in the fourth quarter to Shawn Watson had thrown fewer than twenty passes, and here's why that is a problem to me. You just paid this quarterback one, hundred, fifty, six, million dollars. You're playing a chiefs defense, their top corner suspended. Their other top corner I was out with a hand injury. Ward. And now you have a rookie out there. Why are you trying to dice these guys up like I know it seems like Bill O'Brien spent the first three quarters trying to justify David Johnson trade, and the fact that he got him in the field. But like you have a rookie out there the cheeser down the two best corners and you pay quarterback one, hundred and fifty, six, million dollars that is the guy you should be using to attack the chiefs secondary, which theoretically would have been their weakness but they didn't do that. He just said you know what? We're GONNA keep running down the throat and Bill O'Brien doing bill. O'Brien things and you can't beat a good team with your coach coaching like that. We make fun of Bill Brian the general manager but we SORTA bill, O'Brien coach pass because they win football games I wonder are we going to look back and five years ago? They squandered about two and a half year because Bill Brian does things breach just talked about because? Yes he gets a pass because he does really well in terms of winning football games that maybe a lot of things you could win but I feel like he's leaving a lot of games on the table, right? I mean. This is tough. It's. SORT. Of like a playoff game last in in January. Like. They were twenty four nothing in normally you're gonNA get like bludgeoned publicly for losing a game twenty, four nothing but the mahomes and the chiefs came back. So quickly that was like well. What are you? What are you GONNA do Bill O'Brien with twenty four nothing lead and got promoted the general manager. We got a promotion. GotTa trading the Second Best Player. This one felt a little different in the sense that. The chiefs never. Completely, put the Texans out of it. To Soul crushing drives that we're talking about devil, WHO's fourteen seventy like I'm holding this Texans plus ten ticket and I'm not. Getting a little warm here but you knew that you had a chance to crawl back into it. It just felt like the Texans had no interest in opening up their offense and trying to attack with their skill position guys and remember we talked all season like what is the shackles off? It's GonNa look like. Is it going to be? Feed. David Johnson and then when you're trailing or you have a third second and third and long to Shawn, Watson drops back and tries to hold the ball for a long time and see if will fuller brandin cooks and Kenny stills came to get open and the problem with that. If that is the offense is that he might take a bunch of shots because he holds the ball too long and it feels a little like the CAM. Newton offense that. They used to run Carolina and that is what they did. That's what they did like the show. Watson's holding the ball way too long. He started scramble out from pressure ties. Howard was getting abused on on the side and you know it's early in the season you this offensive line has to come along. But like there's Watson was under siege by Kansas City defense that was really good at the last year but isn't necessarily elite. Well, here's here's the problem. Number one do Johnson got hurt. So last year. The Texas had thirty four snaps with two backs in the back of the same time. Carlos side was the back of the time. So I think there's GonNa be more of that because David Johnson. There's more prepared than Carlos Hyde was Johnson now. So that's one weapon. So that's clearly concern but to your point, it ain't like the chiefs front front seven is getting after the passer. So if you're getting hit as the text stop Shawn Watson, that's an issue especially when. Let me check my notes we to Baltimore Week Three Pittsburgh week four Minnesota so that that's problematic for no one one team but did not look. That's yeah. There's fun fact number two, they play the Ravens in week two. Patrick mahomes that's to MVP's they play the last two MVP's their the first since two thousand five to open their season like in the NFL scheduling office hates him because that's brutal and as Ryan said, you have the steelers and we three in Vikings and week four there's an easy path to Oh info right there. WELL GM do with Bill O'Brien they for. Bill. Bill Brian's not going anywhere I'm joking. Like Bill Brasi right? No, he's not. He's the GM. He's the head coach the guy who hired him died. And the Guy Who Owner guy. He's replaced by his son. WHO's? You. Sounds like a fire Bill Brian like. He may bill O'Brien the GM and then Brian A. Contract extension he let him double down on trading deandre Hopkins for David Johnson signing to Shawn Watson the Globe Ryan's locked in for five years minimal. Going, and if he starts. Like Oh an WHO's firing him? The. In charge of the team right now how McNary firing him? To Shawn Watson fired him. Show wasn't issue statements publicly getting his back all the time. This team might end up winning nine nine games wherever busy they did play. The chiefs are a really good football team. The stretch of games coming up is very difficult, but I don't think this game plan is going to be successful if. John Harbaugh is licking his frigging chops right now. Well, the difference is that as John Burnett Lamar. Pay. But the Ravens Defense is about four times better than chiefs defense. So that's a big issue. What do you mean am? I think it's probably better but I don't have you. Played. Pretty well. I. We just talked about they ran the ball fifty times that the Texas dead and a lot of. And there was this. TRYING TO CALL OUT COLLINS WORTH AL michaels their jobs but part of broadcasting is that you sit down with. The. Coaches and you talked to him throughout the week and you prepare for this pre production meetings and you get information from them that you then we've into the broadcast as a way of. Said nalysts you don't. You don't say Bill O'Brien some stuff you don't see below. told us they kept repeating over and over again that they felt that the offense was too predictable. Andre Hopkins because they knew where the ball was go late and that was one of the things that concern them. That is obviously a spoon fed nugget in a pre-production meeting from Bill O'Brien in the coaching staff where they are trying to hammer home the fact that deandre hopkins made the offense to predictable. So we needed to get David Johnson and mix it up and keep on watching from locking target. Now, there's a viable argument that you don't want to be just completely locking in on on on deandre Hopkins But Brandin cooks I didn't think the passing game was bad. But if the offense is going to be all David Johnson all the time, and then you just mixing in these passer I ain't GonNa work I will say this I thought David Johnson a great job Shawn Watson. Is Shawn Watson I like him a lot he's he's a top five young quarterback. Yeah we do. We know that's him but will fuller bawled out in concerns was how are they gonNa Replace Down Your Hopkins and the other concern is can willfuller say healthy through week one he did Randall. COBB. Was a non factor. There's a lot of conversation how he was going to fill some of the the slot roles that the under his left behind a brandin cooks flashed a little early. So they have to figure that out but hats off to well over for Bala now. To be. Was Ovens like substantially different like you have tin targets for. We'll follow any catches one, hundred, twelve yards but he's driving every I'm in I think he's GonNa have a huge season. He's you have a huge target share. He's GonNa ball all season. But. You know that for sure though I mean Antonio, Brown left Jujitsu issues disappeared. Although pretty confident flows. Good. I Bet I bet I bet you have three touchdowns tonight. Williams winning to. Player of the year about long. Yeah. I'll bet you devante parker would have more yards Sammy Watkins after an little my face. Sammy Watkins by the Way Walk Ins watch twenty twenty, seven catches eighty, two yards one touchdown week once. Over under. Eighty two and a half receiving archer, Sammy Watkins between now and the Super Bowl under way. Jason Sammy Watkins. Would go off again. In Week? One? All, but you know it's crazy same. You walk into my have more receiving yards in twenty twenty than anyone else. He had a big super bowl. That's right. That's right. Well, then you know what's crazy is we talk about bill O'Brien in the Texans offense. But what do you think was a bigger letdown for Houston in this game their offense defense I was gonna ask who Stevens better the text into the chiefs. Way Better. Yeah I mean I. Yeah. I definitely do think thought the Texans defense couldn't come up with any big stops whatever the chiefs needed to do something they did if they're just going through the motions kind just playing with the Texans like a cat playing with a ball of yarn and they got serious every once in a while and they'd go down and score and I really thought the biggest. Difference in this game was the Texans missing that fifty one yard field goal the chiefs fourteen to seven. Then the chiefs, the ball of twenty, five seconds before half-time they go down, they feel will seventeen to seven first possession to start the second half get a touchdown. Now it's twenty, four to twenty, four, seven, it was game over there was no way that the Texans were coming back on that and. Those were the Houston's defense couldn't get up either of those situations. They couldn't get us up on a twenty five second drive right before halftime to let the chiefs skin field goal range, and then they couldn't get a stop to start the second half and by the end of that twenty, four, seven, the beginning of the first of the second half their breach talked about they scored I think the time possession was something like twenty, two to ten in fun. It was bad. You talked about a second ago. I'm Brenton the Texas D was absolutely gas also something we haven't talked about into the third quarter the seventeenth second just. Isn't that like bill like well, this is the fourth quarters like what are you jump seventeen run a play blackjack dealers. Cool, you don't think that seventeen seconds matters. You get free time out after this play you can go any play. You want you have plenty of time to get it. Then you get a free time out a free break to up another script and get ready to go score, and if you do Kinda back in the game, it was that was that was depressing. There's a lot of that from Bill O'Brien where you feel like he's We lost maybe like he's just feel like it's over the Texas at three, hundred, sixty yards of the chiefs strategist sixty, nine, I mean they they weren't like. horrendously outgained in total yardage twenty one. Twenty five minutes possession to thirty four minutes thirty five minutes possession that actually caught up towards the end. There was more than that breach. Let me ask you this and I'm not joking I'm just being serious because you have experience with us. So known the Texans and they they usually win nine ten eleven games they blow their fans. Minds in the playoffs in terms of losing, would you rather be that guy whereas the Bengals Fan? Would you rather just go four and twelve and just say all right this is just going to ride it out in the next season will be. No I want to get to the play offs. I don't care if it's a loss every season because. Every time you're in that playoff game before it takes off, you think you can win sure by the second quarter you're probably down seventeen and nothing you know it's over and it's going to be waiting till next year. But for that quarter and a half that you're in the postseason, there is that hope that that playoff when it's finally coming in Texans, fans are always thinking, Hey, look we get the postseason of Benchley. We'll get to the AFC championship game not even think it's super bowl because the Texans have never made it to afc championship and that's what they're fans are thinking. We can win this division maybe AFC title game. So I think they would absolutely take the playoff berth every day. You have ten straight years of. Playoff berths. Playoff losses. WILL DECISIONS? Or One. Super Bowl berth in nine years of five losses. Were five wins. The Super Bowl Berth. I would take one and so nine years of no playoff berths. For Nine years and you get one year. I'll take the superman versus ten years even even when the Super Bowl I use. You don't it because obviously take the super bowl win but then and then. There's Times. Brinson like watching. Billy Brinson do the exact same things over and over again Yes we go four and twelve for nine years in around the tenth year you're a super bowl berth or you ten, six, ten years in a row but you lose the first playoff game play year is this like a Kobe. Birth where fans aren't allowed to attend the game you can go okay if I can go that I, want the super bowl berth here to walk around with me and But you know what's funny is that seventeen second thing I really think it penalizes we talk about Bill O'Brien making these mental mistakes in Games and the decisions he makes, and you know we don't always come up with twenty examples per game but it's little things like that and they add up and eventually. You're playing a good team to win making those mistakes losing seventeen seconds might not seem like a big deal. Replay it could be losing multiple if you. In can release. And they came out in the fourth quarter, the second play, the fourth quarter was the interception that ice the game. So maybe that doesn't happen if you're running these plays. In the third quarter and chiefs don't have a chance to rest when you're switching sides of the end of the quarter. So it's just insane that he would let that happen. All right. The chief Sarah The teaser back to. US look. Great. I would be. What's up next these teams cheat who we said the the Texas. Play the Ravens and the chiefs are at the chargers. Let's assume that the ravens hold serve against the browns at home as eight and a half point favorites on in week one. What do we think the week to line is? Is that Baltimore Houston that Baltimore it's in Houston ultimately Houston, what is? The fans are probably not. Another ten teams. Kansas City and Jacksonville. And the colts the cowboys and I, think the. Texans aren't doing always on now the Texans I don't think we'll have fans in week one, but it's play it by ear after that. My Line is minus four. I was a minus three ravens. Saying minus four. The taxes are frank. Okay. That's probably right. That's a good call. He actually bet on that. Find it, but then chiefs charges because you look at we just talked about how the chiefs have cupboard in ten straight games and also Patrick Mahomes is like Superman of September, depots got the stats here eight touchdown passes twenty six touchdown passes zero interceptions and he's eight all time in the month of September, I mean that seems like an obvious fit? No matter what the point spread is in the game is in La? So it might not a huge point spread there. Could you imagine if the chargers lose the bengals in week one with this point spread we'll be in week two. chargers. Chiefs would be. Biden's nine. But at the charges beat the bengals maybe like minus five or six, the opening preseason odds minus five and a half and the ravens at Texans preseason ravens minus six then. If you I mean. The, Ravens are playing the Texans and the Ravens are minus three. I've. Spoon in Vegas is twitter handle here anyway. Gambling Gambling Dude. He's like you know what is stupid. This shark thing. I got a bet against the best teams in football like maybe we just stopped doing it. Like maybe we just don't need to be adorable and take the Texans nine and a half. Maybe we just don't have to do that. Maybe we just take the chiefs and realized that the chiefs with Andy Reid coming off a bye are going to beat the snot out of the Texans were noting that Bourbon took the chiefs he was like I'm not. Turning into the bill O'Brien abetting when you do that, you don't think yourself and you'll lose. That's what happens. Of course, it does the. Brinton of bedding is will Brinson, Oh, my God diva was was twitter to look for something and there's a Mike's hard lemonade add on his twitter. A twitter street. He told US earlier on his house that we on your computer or are you running through computer on my laptop? There listening man.

What are you doing at midnight with milk in your hand and he actually looked a little ashamed like a should I just say it's milk because I don't want to them.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport Talks Texans' 0-2 Start & NFL Injuries

"At twelve doubt. Back to. Sports Talk. Your career, your asteroids, your rockets, your voice. sportstalk talks. Shot Sows Brady show the Kansas Comet passed away. And you've been a longtime football fan your thoughts and memories about gale sayers welcome in. Yeah See. What's going on? Yeah you know I was struck by the news You know like everyone else and it's a obviously it's sad it is like the passing of a great player and you know owners really ambassador of the game it. It's interesting for me on gale Sayers I mean there are two. Main images in one is fictitious. You know everyone members the bedside scene from Brian Song that wasn't actually Yell Sayers that was a movie but still there's I. Imagine for most of the people. That's one of the enduring images about incredible movie of you know gale Sayers relationship with Brian Piccolo and that's you know and that was real. That was part of his legacy but it's just it's interesting that I'm sure that's what a lot of people remember. The other thing for me is the highlights are ridiculous. You know I mean. It's The move. She makes as smooth as he is I mean, he looks like a Gazelle and don't have anybody that runs like that. Now he's so beautiful to watch obviously sad but watching his highlights this morning is really just legitimate incredible and rappaport rap sheet on twitter are insider NFL network joins us here on the Sean Salisbury Show Sports Talk Seventy, and I'm about to put it on twitter when we're done here but. He was Barry Sanders before Barry Sanders a little bit different little longer. But the ability to make guys miss and to do what they did there the the two most exciting guys that touch the ball a lot that I've ever seen were highlights a gale sayers because I was too young and Barry Sanders, I'm talking the biggest wild factor players I ever saw those two. Yeah I mean for me you know I what I remember is guilt stairs little too too little before my time. So I've only seen the highlights and what? I've seen her obviously. Ridiculous and incredible and. You know just just the kind of stuff that you really can't replicate what I remember. vary sanders is you know couldn't see all the Games back when we were kids. So it was only on Thanksgiving, but I got to see Barry Sanders and it was like always an incredible treat and I would look show forward to know the. Game Hours. You know I didn't grow the lines fan obviously, but it was the game I look forward to most just because actually got to watch garrison as a person I mean those are the kind of guys Those kind of guys you make appointment television for yeah. You're not kidding man and was it so and to do it in such a short period of time. UNBELIE phenomenal human being gentleman and a great football player in rap point. But Rappaport joins us and let me start right here. By, know they've played. Teams Houston Texans. But they have not been competitive and they're getting pushed around at the line of scrimmage. What's the national narrative on the Texans? Right now. I would say it's definitely wait and see their teams that are own choose that people are like, wow, what disaster I think the lines The lines are a team that has not done well as not played well. As Probably, should've won You know the bears game but dropped the ball in the end zone no time about them just mind boggling. Mind boggling stuff and you know everyone kind of. Frustrated with what they are. You have teams like the jets have been everyone knows thinks they're kind of disaster I haven't heard the saying outrage for the Texans. Now they lose this week maybe I will probably will to go on three, but they played the two best teams and so now I mean they should be also one of the best teams. So I, there's sort of the caveat there should be real real competitive with them, but they really did. Some excellent teams. So I don't know what they are I, mean my senses they're to get the probably two in two or three and three and Kinda restart things a little bit. But you know jumping off the season by facing the two juggernauts probably all the NFL makes it very difficult to gauge what this actually is you like them with Pittsburgh's defense and the fact that the the Texans run defense and pass protection has been miserable for two weeks now they're going. Against a relentless defense in Pittsburgh. I don't feel great about him although I love Watson but the end for me I can fix finesse stuff. If I'm a Chi-, I, can't I mean for me I can tell Kay mechanics. Let's fix this and hey, you ran the wrong route here. Let's do this. I I don't know if I can fix getting physically Mauldin manhandled at the line of scrimmage which they have been the first two games and the Pittsburgh steelers are physically nasty. What happens this week? Now I agree and I mean coming off the edge. You know with Watt and Dupree I mean steelers have been impressive now I'm not You know they they've run the ball. Well not like that. Afraid of their running backs, I would say anybody Schnell James Connor like. Nah, I think those are guys that you can put up me Ben is really to me. Ben Is still really the issue because he just extends plays like always and. You know makes it. If you can't cover the whole play, he makes you impossible I think I need to be tough game week in my you know head it's one that sections could win I'm not saying should win but definitely could win definitely much more. winnable. I would say agreed. So yeah. We'll probably know more about the initially going to the previous to extend rappaport rap sheet on twitter NFL network and our insider here on sportstalk seven hundred. And what do we know? What? What are we going to find out about Kyle Shanahan in the forty niners seen anything on one team like I saw last week or a team that's gone through. I'm talking about a real Alan Alda Mash unit what are we going to find out about the forty niners and CAL Shanahan's team? I mean we're gonNA find out a good system is you know and that's one thing in the? NFL. You know for injuries like let's say you know Nick Bosa goes down and solid Thomas goes down and everyone goes. man. You know so sad and then you had to play the game and everyone forgets it. It really is about how well can you Paulos your system how you replace these guys in the forty hours after so many guys. I mean it's going to be quarterback postlewait tight end. There's no guarantee that they kill comes back this week to start he's the bombing two running backs The receiver group has been banged up I mean it's crazy and they have the giants this week who should be a lot better than the jets I mean that is a tough tough road for For, the forty niners, but if they win. then I think it's something where you say man it really makes no difference who's playing system as long as he's coaching. This is saying something here. But I don't know if I've ever seen rates an early return this year but I don't know if I've seen Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson played better. I mean Russ- I feel like what he's doing now he always kind of does and he's going to be the MVP at this keeps up he's having a phenomenal yeah I mean it's funny how it works out because every. Year it's like I can't believe. He doesn't have any MVP votes and then he goes out and plays like this a national TV and everyone's like and they and he might get it because you know the MVP is not a sort of not a perfect award, right? It really does seem to be a Lotta Times based on public opinion and public sentiment. So everyone's thinking it now Yeah, I mean I could definitely see him winning. Winning the MVP Rogers is interesting too because I'm not. You know I, I don't know if he really played great last year. He had a new head coach. A lot of people have questions about metaphor into great job as a coordinator in Tennessee and the Rogers didn't play. Great. So it's like all right. What is really getting? Now, for two games, they've all been kinda lights out and. you know it's looking like the packers. You'RE GONNA be a Juggernaut when Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers really role in about five years ago. And okay. I don't like to see people get fired but it's part of the nature of the coaching business and it's hard and you know this you covered it's hard I look at Matt Patricia was supposed to be a defensive girl and they grew and they don't Stop Anybody Adam Gates supposed to be an offense of Gurun telling you that may be as bad. A coaching job for a quarterback in an a team I've seen head coach doing a longtime. And thirdly, Dan Quinn's football teams do. Whether it's a hangover the they don't know how to put their cleared on the throat of anybody. Is there a chance that this year? We could see multiple coaches gone before the season's over if this continues. Yeah Yeah I think there is I mean you know now my sense on the jets they wait to the end of the season. You know for. For, Matt. Patricia. You know I would say. I don't know what MS tested his, but they need to win like they need to win the game. They got the cardinals this week. they need to win the game i. mean they gotta they gotTa do something to get out of this and I don't know what it's GonNa take to fire him but I know it's getting it's getting hot there and then you know for Dan Quinn. We've done this before last year. We thought they were going to fire them. They didn't they held on then they lose just an absolute utter. heartbreak after getting blown out the week before like how many chances does he get any land I mean not is just a as a group situation. They're horrible. All Right forget who they played. Forget off season and preseason. South between the Colt Jacksonville. Texans and Tennessee Titans from what you've seen just from execution. Not What it's going to look in a month rank them in order how they've played the first two weeks one to four. Man That's a tough one Let's see. You Know Oh man, this is talk I mean I guess. So I I would say like I like how the Colts The Jaguars have played I. I would say the Jaguars to me even though they're only one in one would probably get top another titans of lunch games the only to know gene. but. They kind of looked. You know like they've won some games but I've been impressed with the Jaguars of Donald Coach Steven I. Think is awesome. Rivers always didn't throw interceptions and then you know the Texans have obviously not played. Well, I don't know about ranking them. But. I would say well I mean. I would probably go jags one titan colds, Texans I still think it's actions have the high ceiling of all these teams in the end will probably end up winning this division because the quarterback now Owen three we might have a different conversation. You're right but I'm with you which tells me, and because we go through the schedule and we say they're going to win this one loses everybody does on their team schedule. The Jacksonville Jaguars Gardner Mitchell are no longer. This is not a bye week you're going to have to show up by them, right? I agree and and it's crazy to think about where the JAGS are like I don't know what they're going to be at the end of the season but. If if Gardner Men's continues like this big continues to be a better than average quarterback. They're going be a young, really real young team. Without the need to go spend big at quarterback that's massive. I mean, that's incredible. That's you know. That's a gift. Go draft. Whatever other physicians you want go get a left tackle. STUB receiver go get whatever they have. So many draft picks coming up they really aren't a position build for the long haul there for a guy who was supposed to just struggle to make a team right? He's ran nick foles out now you may run Trevor Lawrence out 'cause they win too much. All right. Lastly, got about thirty seconds. Will we see a huge trade? Of A big game player before the trade deadline. I would say probably will I mean? There's you know there's a couple of guys like I don't think it's going to be on Robinson, for instance and that's kind of trade everyone's talking about but I think we'll probably see one. you know could eagles move on from Zach Ertz at the trade deadline? Probably not possible. I think everyone sort of settled in and probably making more money now and doing better now depend on we start. So maybe I listened to pocketbooks a little bit and great stuff keep up the great work. We'll do it again next week brother. Thank you.

AP Laboratory - Chiefs-Texans Divisional Round Preview (Ep. 108)

"What's up everybody? Thanks for joining us today. My Name's Ken Swanson. This is the AP laboratory. It is a playoff game preview. Review edition for cheese. Texans had a little by week it was great. It was nice to get time off. It is now time to talk about De Kansas City chiefs making their run to Miami here to help me talk about that. Find Him on twitter at Carolina Mattie Lane. How are you my friend? We are amped. We are ready need to go with this. Is Chiefs Playoff football. There is nothing we look forward to more to in this household then watching Patrick mahomes throw dimes in touchdowns in the playoffs it is time to start stacking up. Those winds eating the WS as the famous Jameis Winston would say we are also the joined by my dear pal Craig style find him on twitter at barley hop. How're you doing buddy great? Now that you drove a famous James wrote on the. I don't WanNa hear invoked Jamus on this football team. What are you doing? Mattie get one week off and talk about the Geez all of a sudden what'd you invoking Jameis Winston. It's wonderful famous Jamie's famous. It makes it better it makes everything. Okay I'm excited excited. I'm amped. Let's let's talk Houston Texas versus Kansas City. Can't you are seeking ill the NFL's passing leader. I'm stressed now so I've been very stressed. We invoke Jamie's if you like this show feel free to subscribe if you're listening right. I'll just go ahead. Hit that. Subscribe but leave us a five star review. We try to answer Spice Star of you questions. If you if you dig us. Please feel free to do that. Let's go ahead and get into storylines on both both sides of the ball. We go offense. I and we got three storylines on offense. I think we've got to start with this travis. Kelsey limited participation. The last two days of practice were recording this before the Friday practice with a knee injury. KINDA surprising ISING I. It doesn't seem like it seems like it came about a nowhere. Honestly because it by all indications sound like everybody was going to be a full practice if you listen to Andy at the the beginning of the week and then this kind of thing sneaks up on you I think Travis Kelsey is a critical piece to this team. If they're going to have success the next couple of weeks leaks and if Travis calls he's not full strength I expect him to play but they need this guy to play Matt. I think that we're probably just seeing a veteran player. Getting a a little bit of time off because something maybe a little sore. Maybe there's a little inflammation. I don't think it's anything serious. He was a limited participant. He wasn't held out entirely. He's GonNa play. I think if the NFL level you can get when players as good as Travis Kelsey. He can have a huge impact on the game even if he is not a hundred hundred percent you obviously want him to be but this is a game. I think the cheese can get by with him playing very well instead of as an elite tied in if they absolutely have to. I'm not even sure. There's that big of a reason to panic just yet. I said it's a veteran player. Getting a little bit of time off in practice when it's stuff like that. It usually does a tip by radar. We are too much as something to be worried about. Yeah me either. I'm with Mattie there. I think he's GonNa play. I think he's still going to be dominant. The Texans give up the thirty first most yards in the thirty first but thirty first worst yards in the league in the middle of the field. Travis Kelsey still going to be able to eat against those safeties in those linebackers but hey even if he's not feeling great guys. We got a D. on yelled or on this team. Perfect time to have him active. Let's see dion yelled or for the second time this year and see him go out there and light up the Texans defense. The first time we saw the elder he was averaged. Twenty five yards the reception. So I mean I don't think we can. I think we'd be too upset with that. I'm not super concerned about Travis Kelsey. It's a little bit uneasy to see that you get this. Limited participate participate tag. kind of it seems kind of out of nowhere out of the blue. But you're right. I think the chiefs will be able to have success at that second against that second level. The defense offense and so. I do think that they're going to have a hard time covering Travis Kelsey. I think he's going to be a critical pieces I think he's going to be the guy that helps move the chains on this offense him in Tyreek Hill. Obviously Veasley guys at Pat. mahomes looks to third eight thirty seven. You know those third down situations I think Travis Kelsey has got to be a big guy that that kind of helps them move. Those changes this week another thing. We want to talk about today. The secondary pieces on this offense. You've got McColl hard. You Got Sammy. Watkins you've got Damian Williams these guys I think I think I think one of Sammy Watkins in McColl Hartmann is primed to have a big game in the next two weeks and I'm predicting that they they will be playing in the next two weeks. You know the thing about Sammy. Watkins is he had ten catches for one hundred. Seventy six yards the the last playoff series that they had those flows two games he off in the AFC championship game. Sammy Watkins with some time off with some rest. I think you're GONNA get some some some good performances out of him and I think he's going to have one big one McColl. He's found a way to impact. You know seven six seven games this here. He's found a way to make a big play. You saw weeks seventeen with the kickoff return. For a touchdown it's not a volume thing from a coal. It's always coming in big. Plays one big play. Play a sixty yard reception touchdown. And Eighty three yarder -ception touchdown that's how his impact is felt. I think you're going to get one of those from him in these next next two weeks. I'm looking at these secondary pieces. Somebody's gotTa step up and make a play for this football team outside of the guys that are going to get so much attention I see. You're Sammy Watkins. I see your McCall Hardman. I raise you a demarcus Robinson. I owe the Texans are team. They play fairmount zone coverage Romeo Cornell. I think everyone's Kinda used to his nose. His Bend don't break philosophy he gets those cornerbacks and safeties kind of playing the deportees. They play all play a fourth field. They get deep they try not to give up the big play Robinson while maybe not a great route runner. He'd maybe isn't a guy that's always praised is finding the open spots zones. He's pretty good working with Patrick Mahomes. They're on the same page a lot. I think you might find some place where he can settle down at some intermediate deeper zones down the field. Get over the top. Ah linebackers that struggle a little bit in coverage underneath those deep defenders at maybe pick up a few key third downs or a few big chunk. Plays that maybe. Don't go for forty yards and a touchdown could see him coming out of this game with a good fifty. Seventy five yards may be catching a big one on a broken play Do have that connection as Kinda get that feeling that this is a game robbins. You really find some open space and a team. That doesn't try to lock up receivers one on one with the defensive backs. Too often and Damian Indian Williams is a real key candidate for this as well. The Texans defense doesn't have a ton of speed especially in their linebacking core outside of the Guy Brennan scarlet. That told you guys all about before the year started and he's been phenomenal for them. So Pat Myself on the back for that one. But a day Damian Williams is coming into his own apparently he shows up in a big way in December and January. I'd like to see it. I'd like to see him. Come out I feel like like he can hit a couple of home runs. He's not GonNa Chisel away you know six or seven yards at a time. You're going to see a lot of one and a half. Two yard runs out of him. But what like Kit said about McColl taking those single opportunities being able to hit those home runs those game changing plays Damian Williams does I I I see him having himself a little bit of a big day on Sunday particularly against a Romeo Cornell defense that met said likes to kind of back everything off. He'll have have some room to work underneath. Mattie you wanted to talk about bunch sits Something that you saw from the bills had some success last week. The bills aren't the most electric passing team in the League. They don't do this talent but they kind of went. In these bunch sets three receivers two receivers tied end all next like sweet other off the side of the formation about five. Maybe six times against the Texans in every single time there wasn't open receivers to be found most of the time they were able to find him. They did miss on a couple of them. But what you got to see is the Texans when facing these bunch sets went to a wild man coverage or even when they were in the zone coverage later in the game mm protecting the lead. Their communication secondary isn't always good. These guys get mixed up a little bit on the releases when you get these bunch sets you have a lot of guys at across each each other's paths your secondary has to be on the same page where chiefs fans we all know the two-point conversion from the chargers at the two thousand eighteen game. We all know what that looks. Looks like that happened multiple times from just the bills against the Texans. I've shared the Texans will try to share it up but when you face a more electric team like the chiefs there's more threats out there than whatever the bills are running around out there it puts a lot of pressure and you get these things done right off the bat or you have tyreek Hill running free Travis Kelsey McColl McColl Hartman. Any of these guys running free. That's a lot of weapons you put them in these bunch. That's bake the secondary communicate with each other second. Guess what they're doing. It just helps you guys get that extra your steps operation before they make their breaks. And Patrick Mahomes isn't going to miss. Those guys like Josh Allen is or throw it twenty yards over their heads or worth wrote a fullback and double coverage not going to happen. tyreek hill gets his feet down on the corner out John Brown. Yes Oh my goodness yes. So it's chiefs offense is going to have a lot more success than we saw the bills often tad. I know that team. If you look at that game you can see that. There were There were some situations where Houston kind of force things out of bills. That's more an indicator of the bills. Offense in it is the chiefs then the Houston Texans defense. I expect the chiefs offense to be able to dial up a lot of stuff like Matt said workout with a bunch a little bit more create confusion on the back end and get guys like Tyreek Hill. Travis Kelsey McColl hardman Sammy Watkins with the ball in their hands. We know what happens when that happens. So get it to them. Give them space see. The fireworks happen something something to consider when it comes to some of those communications issues. Is these two guys. Were in on the team. The last time that the chiefs played the Texans but Gary and Conley was traded for four and Vernon Hargreaves was claimed shortly before the trade deadline. So these guys got kinda thrown into the mix here for the Texans getting some secondary help there has been some coverage bust issues. They've they've had some communication troubles that might be part of it. And hopefully that continues this week because I think there's some guys that can capitalize on some of these mistakes like they've been like the chiefs have been able to in the past. Okay players to watch Craig starts off. I'm starting with Eric or with. Jj Watt Dad. Eric Fisher Earth Eric Fisher. The moment he endured you know kind of made himself a Kansas City. Chief happen against. Jj Watt happened chiefs first playoff win. In in thirty years he Sunde. Jj Watt in that game was they face. Jj Watt. A lot is over Eric. Fisher's ten year here Lauren. Do vernay tardy talked about how. Yeah we know what's coming like. We've seen him basically every year for the past four years. We know what's coming. Eric knows what's coming Eric Fisher struggles with power struggles with guys like Jj Watt. But for some reason. He just gets up for this game he always gets suffer. Jj Watt I WANNA see the fired up version of Eric Fisher. Not New fish fired up fish going out there and putting on a show in stoppage what we talked about just about every receiving option for this team in some haven't really talked about tyree killed some flaked. There's probably a good time slot in there and I think something you're going to see the chiefs this kind of combines tyreek hill with a bunch sets. You'RE GONNA get a lot of. Why is it looks the chiefs? I've been doing it a lot more. That are going to get travis. Kelsey split out by himself. The Texans will get a cornerback. Usually on him. You can put Kyrie kill in that bunch set with Sammy. Walk wherever else as you want. That's just a lot of speed you have to deal with. I think the chiefs Andy. Reid are going to have a lot to play. Dialed up for tyreek Hill. NATALIE DETEST TEXANS DIV but maybe you see see a little bit more behind the wider scrimmage stuff out of maybe you see them get the ball into his hands in space on slants are shallow drag routes a little bit more often than we have earlier in this year. You put them in these situations getting lost out of these bunch sets. There's GonNa be some space for him to work. I think this is a game for tyreek Hill. Really could have another big game here. If someone's someone's going to capitalize on coverage busts it's GonNa be McCall Hartman you've seen it happen before he's been able to get free down the field because of some of this stuff that they've done vertically and he's kind of been able to run up the scene and and find some explosive plays I think about I think about the Baltimore Ravens Game. The last time they played he was able to Kinda streak down. The field uncover pretty much so I think Nicole Hardman. I think this is the guy that has a big game this week. I think he makes one big explosive. Play on Verka shot and it might be because of the coverage bus because of what we've talked about we're gonNA take a break and we'll be back right after this uh I'm Jillian Weinberger. Who's to the impact? A podcast from vox about how powerful people affect the rest of us this season. We're looking at the big India's from all the people running for president in twenty twenty hit this opioid crisis head on public option. move away from energy efficiency and it's GonNa the Great Wall and it's going to work. A lot of those ideas have actually been tried before like that. Wall trump wants to build the gallows Zona has had one on its border order for decades. I don't understand why individual people have a right to have a fence and yet get a country can't Senator Warren's proposal to end the OPIOID crisis it's based on what we did to fight the AIDS epidemic. We would like to name it the Ryan White Care Act and the green new deal. Germany tried something similar in two thousand. This solution this season the impact. We have those stories. How the big? The ideas from twenty twenty candidates worked or didn't work in other places or at other times. These are the stories that will help us understand what might happen if these proposals get rolled out here in the next four years. Subscribe to the impact on Apple podcasts. Or your favorite podcast APP to get new. You episodes now all right. We're moving onto the defensive side of the football here. We've got three storylines. Craig you wanted to talk about quarterbacks with the same level of safety help please explain what you mean I mean this chiefs cornerback crew is. I'm not going to be protected in the same way that they have been in the previous four five six match ups. And it's not just because the quarterbacks that they're playing weren't particularly good at pushing the ball down the field work particularly good at exploiting the the quarterbacks it's because they don't have one thornhill back there they might not have dance orange malign deep to it's going to be kindle fuller an Armani Watts guys. That aren't necessarily comfortable playing with each other yet. It just takes time on the field. That's not an indicator of any preparation or anything like that. Just takes live game reps to do that. So the cornerbacks are really going to have to shoulder. There are a lot more of the load against the Andre Hopkins against will fuller against Kenny stills. Those guys are going to have to step up their game way way up because they're not going to get the timely help they're not going to get necessarily the correct communication on the back end with so many new pieces back there. It's going to require char. HARV AREAS WAR Berlin Moore's clayborn even maybe Rashad Fenton there if they decide to use him a little more in the slot with fuller deep. It's going to require those guys to you. Just play above and beyond what we've seen them do this year. They've gotten the most they've maximized those guys potential but they gotta clean everything up because these are the types of weapons weapons and this is the type of quarterback that can make them absolutely pay if they make a mistake. This is something that we've talked about kind of all season. I know some people. People don't like to hear it. Because on the surface the chiefs cornerbacks played very well tr- various ward They've played well on the outside and I think they played better than just about anybody. Thought coming into the seat not taking that away from them but they have been playing in a situation. That's been very friendly to them. We the chiefs. Don't ask them. The shadow guys is across all over the field of play different sides of the field. They usually don't ask them to cover the whole field against their matchups concede wide receivers. They WANNA help it not only over the top but also inside or underneath or they're only asked to play underneath rather than everywhere they get a lot of help through the system when you take takeout. Somebody like want ordeal. That's not only proven to know the system. Be a playmaker in somebody that you often have to look for and find him. You now put a new guys. You don't have his same ability or knowledge of the system that helped level decreases a ton or you have to adjust scheme the system. You either put to save these back deep dealt these quarterbacks or you ask them to do a lot more than they have all year long. The last time we kind of saw these owners have to put up so much on their own. Might might have been the Texans game that we saw last time in which there was a lot of drought passes down the field. Hopefully we don't see a repeat because these corners might be on an island a little bit more than they have. Recently the thing is I think one thornhill earn some respect from teams from opposing teams. They weren't challenging to the same level. I think these I think the savings are going to get challenged attention. I think the corners are GONNA get challenged to the last time. These two teams matched up will fuller dropped three touchdowns one religion to on. Ah safeties I believe I think both I think one of them for sure. I believe it was tiring so I mean I think this. This group's going to get challenged. I think regardless of however they align what kind of help they give the corners or whatever I think that secondary is getting challenged. I I think it's smart. They're going to try to generate some explosive place so they need to be ready and the chiefs might have to play play with a lighter. Box the run game Mattie in if that's the case I think this is a game that you can get away with it. I am Carlos Hyde had a very good year for the Texans but their offense of lying isn't physically imposing imposing they have some good athletes but they're not the most athletic bunch either Carlos Hyde essentially. You stop him by making him have to not just cut once in go if you can make him cut twice if you can make him hesitate when he has finally pick his whole. It really hinders his running style. It's part of the reason even at work as well chiefs chiefs. They asked the running backs stay square the whole lot. More be patient. Wait for things to appear as they run. So many Arpaio's Texans do let him just make one cut and go a little bit. If your defensive line could close the gaps force him to make hard cutbacks backside of the runs or just make him pick a second gat once he starts going. Just hesitate Eh bit. It does take him a second to get going. You can definitely stop him with a wider box. Like I said the Texans Line isn't anything to be afraid of the only concern. What is the Texans? Two tight end sets they kind of got the chiefs with it a little bit in the first matchup especially when they were debating between pass run but achieves her playing a lot better. Now I I think you have to go the wider Fox to handle this two tight end sets passing anyway absolutely the case and especially since the real threat there. It's not necessarily getting nickeled and dimed by Carlos Hyde. Because the defensive front is going to be better just is Mike Panel Terrell suggs and a healthier Frank Clark are going to be better than Colin Sanders in his first real major action and he admitted that in his presser. That's not a shot colonies at listen. I've grown a lot since then. But that was my first real major action. It's a situation. Where the personals better Anthony Hitchens going to be? Aligning them the better. You didn't really see a lot of adjustments made by been Neiman in that first match up. You didn't see him moving guys around on the Front Anthony. Hitchens is going to put these guys in the right right spots get them with the right leverage be able to stop the run. I think they can do it against a light box. If the chiefs WANNA play too high all game along and I think they're going to need to because these bag Nilo. I don't think is that worried about stopping the run this week. He wants to limit explosive. Plays through the air and try and force the Texans having a pass or you can just see off this pass rushers. I think I said this earlier in the week. I'm not sure if I did but I think one of the things to help mitigate some of the run game is just the chiefs office. He's just light up the scoreboard. Just the run game. You can mitigate a little bit by going out there and just being explosive on offense and get them into a more passive script. That can help a lot of things. Just go score points. That'd be fun anyway Craig. Craig Chris Jones did not get to play in the last matchup. He's hitting eat this week isn't he. He's going to eat so much. It's going to be silly. I know that Chris Jones popped up on the injury report on Thursday with a calf injury. We'll see exactly how serious that is. We just don't know at this is point. I'm operating under the understanding that Chris Jones is going to be able to play and he's going to be affected that this is just you know something that they're resting they're taking taking it easy on and making sure that he can play if Chris Jones gets to go if Chris Jones's full. I expect a multi sack performance out of him. I just think that he's going to be able to take it to Max Scharping. He's going to be able to take it to Rodney Rodney Hudson Zach Fulton. He's going to be able to the other former team the other former chief chief yet. They're going to. He's going to be able to beat up their guards really really really well. And I think that the chiefs have types of defensive ends to keep Shawn Watson in the pocket of a little bit longer. We know when he's in the pocket he gets through his I read and he holds onto the ball and he just sits any weight. Chris Jones is going to be able to do a lot against that interior offensive offensive line. I expect him to eat in the passing game. I expect him to eat in the run game as well I think that's part of the reason. Why Carlos Hyde is going to struggle in the run game as well I I think he is potentially one of the biggest performers this weekend? Chris Jones should have a big impact in the interior. I think you saw the bills had plenty success. Getting pressure up the Middle Shawn Watson that you just have to worry about containing him a little bit but Chris Jones should be nightmare matchup for Fulton. We've seen full near at Wykeham is a player. He does not have foot speed or the capabilities to keep up with Chris. Jones lateral agility speed moves. There's no chance and the best part is once Christiane inserts clicking. The help cannot get out to frank. Court cannot get out. Terrell suggs is much and I do understand the Texans traded for left tackle Tunsil. He's he's pretty good. I still think he's a step down from top tier offensive. Tackle season the Eric Fisher range for me as an offensive tackle. I think freight court could do work on him. I think glaring tons of wives plenty of false starts because that is just his game apparently other side of the field of titus. Howard you get one on one match ups for our Defense Titus Zone Titus is on I on then you get these guys matched up one on one with these tackles in Chris Jones? Just hailing things in the middle. I think Christiane success sets up the defensive ends for a lot more success. If you don't let the help get out there to them. By the way arrowhead be loud because Laremy Tunsil is going to false. Start at home he. He is really really bad about it. He's GonNa Jump Multiple Times this weekend. It's going to be awesome here for it. Players to watch Craig. I think the biggest question mark of the entire week and everything that we're going to be talking about everything that we've been talking about for the past two weeks kindle fuller going to be able to do this I think Kendall Fuller if he plays well can give all of us I we were just talking about it before we recorded all of us a little bit of that added comfort knowing that they can play single high a little bit more if kindle fuller looks good now I don't expect them to play a high because I think that they're just going to try and keep a lid on both Hopkins and Fuller but if he gets them reps if he looks good there and I think that they can trust him going forward in these playoffs I think he could be the low key. Mvp Of this defense and the playoff just with his ability ability to step in and try and replicate what they've done with one thornhill try and keep everything on the back end a little bit cleaner. I think that he's got the range change to do it of the guys that are left there that they're really willing to play back there so I'm really looking hard at his performance this week. I'm glad Craig went with full. We're here because I wanted to talk about tired. Matthew in it seems like the easy way out but I got a couple of reasons for one I think he's going to continue to cement the fact that he should be if he's not but should have been included in the defensive player of the year. Candidacy talking about it all year. He's had a phenomenal end of the season. He is the guy on defense offense. I think you have to watch. If you're just talking about the chiefs best player. It's no longer frank cord. It's no longer Chris. Jones Tired Matthew a think means the most to the chiefs defensive defensive performance right now but the big thing that I'm looking for this game is does he play his same position. Does he get his stay in the slot is he gives. Stay near the line of scrimmage as he get the hunt of all make all those tired Matthew plays or is he relegated to a deep Hatfield defender. The chiefs tried that early in the year against the Texans tired. Matthew did not have a great game. That's not his forte. Just playing in a d path playing single high. That's not where he's at his best Nafis bad. It's just not where he's at his is best if they have to push him to the back end and stay over the top of force over the top of Hopkins. I think will be misusing him a little bit if they have to go that route so I'm just interested interesting to see if they could keep him in the slot. Near the line of scrimmage a let them make plays if so I feel really good about this game and next week when they have to play the Ravens. Yeah you don't WanNa make two positions worse for sure a guy I'm going with T.. sizzle Terrell suggs. I think he's going to make an impact on this football game. I think he's going to get a sack for some of the reasons that these guys talked about earlier. I think Chris Jones is going to command some attention and if that does it's going to soften some things up for for a guy like Terrell suggs. I think he's going to be valuable piece for this football team in their stress around this is to game. This is just a two week season right now for me. I think you win this one. Obviously I I feel good about this one. They've just got to get to that next week. Just get to that next week. These two weeks Terrell suggs. I think is going to make an impact these next two weeks all right guys time for predictions. Well we gone with Craig. I'm going with the chiefs and we're covering the spread. I think that the chiefs offense is going to be able to score it. Will I just. I don't think that the Texas defense has the personnel matchup. I think that the chiefs can exploit coverage you know communication mishaps. I think that they can get the ball all going on the ground a little bit and then on the opposite side I think the chiefs defense can come up with enough stops early not a ton but enough stops early to make this a more one dimensional game and allow the pass rush to come into it a little more. I know that does Shawn Watson is good and keep up in a shootout. I just think that the pass rush going to have too much of an effect on him and they won't be able to put the points on the board. I got chiefs thirty eight Texans Twenty Andy Reid coming out of the bye week. Patrick Mahomes tyreek Hill Travis. Kelsey achieves her putting up points the chiefs are going to score this Texas defense. There's no doubt about it on the flipside Deshaun Watson. I think it's about time. We have the talk with the Shawn Watson that we waited five years to have about aired Rogers. He's a fine quarterback quarterback that makes elite or spectacular plays. He's not in the lead or spectacular quarterback. He is a fine quarterback that has a very open been wild games that makes enough spectacular as they catcher highlight reels and baked people think he's a lot better than his overall performance throughout the entire game. You put that against this spagnuola defense Andy Reid off the bye week. Patrick Mahomes as motivated as he is. The game. Aim isn't as close as the score. Looks chief thirty. Four Texans Twenty four Yolo Ball city down the stretch similar to the chiefs Texans the first time they gotta see Watson Tomake it. What close I have a lot of questions about that? Aaron Rodgers analogy that. We'll just wait until after the show but we're going to talk about that. I M picking achieves victory. I'm picking an explosive performance from the offense. I think the Andy Reid after the bye thing I think this team is pretty healthy on the offensive side of the football. They did have to play last week all that stuff. I think it's I think it's I think I leave. The chiefs have been holding some stuff back. I think we've had some be mine scripts recently. I think they've got some some stuff cooking. I think they'll have plenty to throw it Houston and I think they're gonNA have plenty to throw it Baltimore next week and they'll have plenty to throw at whoever they play in the Super Bowl the run starts now go to arrowhead expecting good things to happen. The best thing that could happen this franchise Patrick Mahomes. uh-huh has already happened. He's taking you to a super bowl this year. Believe it expected 4220. Kansas City. Chiefs won't be back on Monday Monday to talk about this cheese. Victory calculated. Yeah I can't wait to hear top that altro a week from now.

The Texans will join us coming up also talked to Kurt Warner former MVP now hall of Famer working for Westwood One. He was on the call last night of the chiefs in the Rams Chris Simms. Will join us in studio on loan from pro football talk. Lamar jackson. The ravens quarterback is he still the starting quarterback. He'll join us as we'll Reggie Miller with his weekly pitstop as well if you'd like get in touch with the program variety of ways to do so eight seven seven three DP show, Email address DP, Dan, Patrick dot com. Twitter handle at DP show said good morning to a radio and TV partners around the country in a season of record breaking offense as last night's Rams chiefs game took it to the next level. Rams winning fifty four fifty one. It will go down as one of the more exciting Monday night games of all time. One of the more exciting football games of all time. First time two teams had both scored over fifty points in a game. Fourteen touchdowns in all over a thousand combine yards. And normally you might say any team that allows over fifty points in a game can't be a true Super Bowl contender. But in two thousand eighteen that's not true last night. Of course was ridiculous. The Rams and chiefs didn't play well on defense, although they both had defensive scores. The Rams d two touchdowns Aaron Donald was a beast again. But maybe that's the best you can home hope for with these teams because they just need their defenses to make a couple of place and then get out of the way because this is all about offense. And last night was simply as good as it gets when it comes to that. I was reading a column the Monday morning quarterback with Connor or and he goes a little bit deeper on this game. He was talking about all of the political matching nations in red tape that have gone into creating something like we saw on Monday night football, all of the rule changes all the subtle winks and nods to the fantasy football crowd. Be arms wide open stance as the legal sportsbook start to roll in think of all the strides in health and exercise science, everyone maximizing their potential everyone being bigger and faster and stronger than they've ever been the landscape was ripe for a game that could facilitate a fireworks grand finale every week on every play in every stadium. Monday will be remembered as the night that changed everything he goes on to write. So what's next the off season will be catastrophic as team owners trip over each other to recreate this coaches will be fired schematic soothsayers will emerge from every corner of the football universe. Trying to get in on the fractious. The draft will ebb and flow with the vacillations of panic game plan architects trying to figure out how the hell they're going to build a team. Good enough to score forty in a game. But stout enough to keep the opponent under thirty five. It will produce more games like this in two thousand nineteen. Because alternately that's what owners want, and it will produce more teams falling flat on their faces in a desperate attempt to try will that be a good thing. Connor or rights? That's the question the NFL and all of us really should've asked ourselves years ago. It's too late to turn back now. But there's nothing like watching it unfold. You're going to have these offensive minded head coaches offense of coordinators the quarterbacks you're going to look for now. What do you wanna defense do one a run stopper? No. Are you going to get some pass rushers the edge rusher? Still going to be important. What about your secondary you watch last night? And I thought the officials did a really poor job. And this is an all-star crew. You can't be the story in the first half. And you were. But as you move forward with this with Patrick Mahomes. He's the new face of the NFL. That style. And even as great as Aaron Donald is does it really matter. And if you're the New Orleans Saints, do you look at that game and say man, I like our chances a whole lot more because we're all offensively. We're the same as those two teams defensively were better than those two teams. But the Rams winning last night hurts the saints because trying to get that home field advantage. But you look at the other teams how does Kansas City match up with the Steelers right now or the patriots right now. The chargers right now, the Rams the saints who else in the NFC. And there's this the game you want for the Super Bowl. It'd be exciting. It'd be fun. But as we move forward, you can have too much of a good thing. The NFL is a copycat league. Go back to the greatest show on earth with Kurt Warner Marshall Faulk that was that was where the NFL said, hey, that's something different. Now, let's try to recreate that. But eventually. Somebody will be counterintuitive to that. You're going to have everybody tried to go crazy and have these wide open offenses here you got to get third because that was the big twelve game. When he Patrick Mahomes have been Texas Tech plan against Oklahoma. Jared Goff could have been Baker Mayfield at Oklahoma. But the over under. I mean there were trying at sixty eight to seventy and then they just blew right by that. If you did if you did a rematch right now, I wonder what the over under would be. I wonder what Vegas would would say. You know, what let's make it seventy five points over under which seems crazy. But it's not. But this is the new NFL. This is what they wanted. They want excitement they want fantasy the gambling aspect of it. So whether you want it or not it's here, and you saw it on full display last night. Mclovin. You've got a poll question for me today. Yeah. We have a lot of questions off last night's game start with. This NFL you want as a fan. Okay. I would think they yes would win. I mean, I don't want to nine six titans colts game. But if you said, it was going to be a shootout where I just wanna make sure that the playing field is level just a little bit. And it's not it is tilted just so when these defensive players are are just trying to find out what they can and can't do and everything's been taken away from them. So I I don't think you're fair to the defensive players who are trying to make a living who are trying to stand out. I'm curious what J J watt thought of that game last night as a defensive player and a guy who will be up for defensive player of the year. I mean, Aaron Donald is spectacular. But does he really matter in the big picture here? What defensive player really matters anymore. And I think that would be the biggest concern, I would have and keep in mind. What's going to happen in this draft this year, you got four defensive tackles who are probably going to be in the top ten picks. What do you need a defense? Tackle for. Who matters anymore? I mean, that's why I love what the bears did the bears have a great defense, and they went and got Khalil Mack. There aren't a lot of calill max out there. But is that going to matter in the bigger picture here? Yes. Mclovin. Isn't a trend that you have to come up the middle be except for Khalil Mack. Nobody can get around the edge facet is a quarterback to get rid of the ball. Have you heard that? So everyone's looking for Aaron Donald I question is are there other Aaron Donald maybe at Oliver? I don't well. Ed Oliver supposed to be good clemson's got a really good defensive lineman. Auburn's got one. But you know, you're watching that and saying is that how is that the new way to get to the quarterback is to do what Aaron Donald does. Well, there are many air Donald's. There's only one Aaron Donald mclovin, Nick Bosa to he's an edge guy. Yes. Boeing if he plays last year the average NFL game the two teams combined for forty three points this year, it's up to forty eight and a half in less than a year. That's a big jump yet. Every other year, I can go back. It's always teams combined for about four. Two two points a game going back to nineteen Ninety-four. It hasn't fluctuated that much. I can understand. And this is what the NFL does like they catered it to gambling and fantasy. I mean, they they did they catered their product to gambling and fantasy. But it's entertainment. These owners want you to go to a game. They want you to share in the excitement, and then you have everything else that's going to play in here that I don't know if another league is done that where they they've given a nod to fantasy and gambling like the NFL has is there. One rule change that made this happen. Or is it the past five years of like the defensive back rules? The new hitting quarterback rules. It's it's a culmination and now the offense as well. Screw it. Why run for not paying these running backs? Anyway, I think that this open the door was open years ago. And you could see it slowly, maybe it wasn't that slowly, but they were slowly taking away the defenses, you know, defensive holding Seattle's defense from four years ago five years ago. I mean, they couldn't they couldn't survive. Now, they wouldn't allow them to do what they did back, then manhandled the defensive, you know, wide receivers, and I think that the NFL is opened the door to this of let's protect the quarterback. We're really going to protect. A quarterback we want more offense in here. We want fantasy. It's a big deal to us. Then the gambling comes in. Yes. Seeing it defensive holding. You just said that's become a big call. You get a lot of those in a game where I don't remember that always just seemed like pass interference or nothing and now defensive holding. You get a little tug on jersey. And does does end up being big plays GAM, mclovin. But the quarterbacks mug every receiver every play. And I think quarterbacks are worse than they've ever been. I heard it's peace practice. I'm they are so bad. They've no idea. What's going on in any play? They're always turned away from the quarterback in. They always tackle the receiver. I feel like you'd call it on any plan. Yeah. But I would mug the wide receiver too. Because I want to see if you're going to call it every play because you you've given me no chance here, I'm not allowed to do anything. So I'm going to try to get away with something. Why should you be allowed to hit the receiver when the balls in the air? That's the oldest fly full. You shouldn't be able to touch receive. I'm sorry. It's just never used to be out of touch him at least five yards. Yeah. You can still receivers can still. Push off. That's true. But like reverse could do this like I feel like quarterbacks are not good anymore. All the good players. Go too often Rivas is a whole Famer fritzy, and it was brought up in the broadcast last night. I think it was booking Macron saying I'm one of his pet peeves was how come these quarterbacks. They don't play the ball enough. They don't turn around and just constantly past. Because at least you gotta make an effort like you're playing the ball and turn around when you see your receiver slowing slowing down because he's getting ready to catch the ball. It's coming Patrick Mahomes talked about the loss because he was good and bad last night. He accounted for five turnovers. Here's Mahomes on the offense the Kansas City. Chiefs. Have I believe are all sense is can be the best and the league. And I thought we kind of proved that for a while this season. But I mean, there's a lot of great offices another saints. Another Rams also have really offenses and and in charge, and there's a lot of teams that are playing. Well, right now, so always will take my team over everybody. Just because I know we're Kate was Mahomes. Also talked about even. So it was a great night scoring. It's still bottom line is they lost it sucks right now. I mean, this planning simple. I mean you wanted to win that game going into the bye week. He gets a team like that a playoff team. But at the same time, we still control their own destiny fleet. If we can go out there and win football games after the bye week. It's like that reset get your body ride and come back with that mentality that we're gonna win and you can still get home field advantage. Hopefully. Yeah. And I don't want to be one of those guys who says, you know, what this isn't the way I grew up watching the NFL or APIs exciting. It was it was fun. But I would like to see it where it feels like the defense can still matter in the NFL. And I don't know if if defense is going to matter I've always felt every time I make an a Super Bowl prediction. I wanted defense that can make us stop when you need to make a stop. And that's the most important thing in it'll it'll matter in a playoff game or Super Bowl this year. And I don't know if these defenses are bad by nature by design or these offenses are just too good. Yes. But it's weird. Then in a game that defense is don't matter. There was three defensive touchdowns last night and almost a fourth that was taken back. But it didn't matter like it was all about offense last night except that the defense put up so many points. They did make plays. But we're going to look at those defenses and say how bad they were. They gave up a thousand yards. Defense don't like combined thousand yards in a game. So while they did make plays. I thank you. Just look at the defenses an essay you Pat him on the head and say, it was really nice. And it was good way to step up times. Yeah. Yeah polk. But if you're the NFL you must be just loving this. You know, we're talking about this year. We're not talk about cabernet. We're not talking about protests violence anything. It's all about the numbers and the games and the quarterbacks that's for the past ten weeks. We've just talked about football. Here are the numbers in. This is why you should have seen this coming. These are net yards per game. Now this is by season. So the combined net yards so the two teams. Combining this is the average seven hundred twenty two yards this year. Second on the list is two thousand fifteen third is two thousand sixteen fourth is twenty thirteen. And then you got fifth is twenty fourteen. So the the the last five years, that's we've seen these numbers. They continue to rise over right around seven hundred yards net offense, but the two teams combined. So we we know it's coming and it's going to continue its seven hundred twenty two yards per game for these teams combined. That's the average. Yeah. Fritzy, I'm not saying it would have been a significant difference. But it's still worth mentioning that. No, Eric berry for the chiefs Noah keep to leave for the Rams that maybe would slightly tighten things up a little bit. If you had some of those quarterback threats and both sides, maybe maybe it would have been fifty to forty seven or something like that JJ watt will join us coming up next. We'll settle on a poll question. We'll hear from Jared Goff in Sean McVay following last night. Kurt Warner did the game for Westwood One radio. Chris Simms will stop by Lamar Jackson of the ravens their quarterback will join us and Reggie Miller as well. So a lot to get to. We'll update you on the calendar, by the way, big hit big.

And I said it was a limited run here worldwide reaction actually heard from people outside the United States wanting to know if they can get the calendar. We sold a thousand we sold five hundred in the first couple of our we only had five hundred that that was the limited run. And then it was a thousand by the end of the day. And so we're going to extend it to fifteen hundred. That's that's it. That's that's that's our limit. That's what we can do. Given the timeframe of getting these calendars to you. We wanna make sure you get the counters in time for the holidays, but the calendar is already a bestseller, and we're already working on next year's calendar. So twenty nineteen Dan Patrick show calendar. Yes. Bone some people so disturbed by the November picture asking that November be removed for the calendar. Overall the world count. Yeah. It would be just eleven month calendar because of Seaton's picture I did show to my family last night. Yes. Thursday is not going to be a great day. They're going to be staring at that Turkey thinking Seaton's there naked so tasty. Yes. This isn't it? My son was like. Dead. Yeah. What'd you do? Sal and San Diego says my wife, and I are watching today's show. She saw Dan's rods, Al bodies out loved it. Ask her if she wanted me to order her one. Then she saw fritzy see said only if they take out the month of February loved the show happy thanksgiving to all not necessary. Well, that's that's sound. Well, fritzy's yours is in bad. I didn't think here's his bad at all. I don't think. So no Seaton's disturbing thing minds bed. It just disturbing. It's not bad. It's just disturbing until JJ won the Texans defensive end joining us on the program. How are you today? Are you doing I'm doing okay how much football? Did you watch last night? Most of the first half is wild game. Is it a good game? I woke up this morning, everything I read so it was like one of the best games of all the time. So yeah, I would imagine it was. But can can we have too much offense scoring? Yeah. Yeah. Defensive guy. So of course, my answer is yes. But I mean a couple of those touchdowns round defensive s off some of the highlights as mourners pick six obviously to fumble for touchdown so cancer offense. But I mean, I know it's I get it. I mean, it's as people wanna watch scoring. So I I understand it. But obviously defensive guy it you wanna see a little bit more decent scoring, but I like last night. But was there a significant rule change? Or is it just been a series of rule changes in the last couple of years that have kind of opened this up where it feels like it's big twelve football. Yeah. I definitely think it's been a little bit gradual over the years. I mean, I think you know, I've always said that probably the hardest addition at besides quarterback out there to play in the NFL is is defense back. I mean, you can't really touch anybody after five yard, you know, you can't make any contact whatsoever. It's and you have to basically run with the guy running full speed. And he knows where he's going. You don't know whereas on and you're trying to find a way to make a plan. I mean, that's that's extremely difficult to do. And so I've always said that's tough. And I'm sure that's obviously held a tribute to the offense appoints a little bit. Would you rather face a predominantly running team or predominantly passing two? I'm a I love the passer. So I always I'd like to say surpassing team, but it's easier to know what you're going to get I would say against running what change with this team after the slow start in Elvis sudden Texans. Are you know, a playoff caliber team? Not a ton. Not a time. We just start to find a way to finish the game. I mean, it wasn't like those one miraculously moment where all of a sudden we should be winning. Instead of losing. We just we just went to work every day and little things it was just little things. Whether it was penalties or whether it was winning a turnover Bali, you know stuff like that. But then we believe in each other. Now, I mean, we believe we're gonna find a way to win. And even if you look at our last couple of games, I mean, they haven't been the most pretty games in the world. And we went to a couple over time games early industry. But we believe that we were going to find a way to win at the end of the game. We had no idea how the last two games. It just happened to be when he's done to miss a field goal on the last play the game and found a way. Yeah. You beat the Redskins twenty three twenty one seven and three I in the AFC south you had the injury with Alex Smith, you were involved in that tackle of when did you know, it was serious. When I got back to the sidelines. So I had to play it was third down. So we off the field our back over the sidelines, and I got back over there song down. So I took a knee. And I thought it was like a head injury or something because I saw so many people around him he had really moved a lot. And then one of our trainers walked over to me and said, he broke his leg. And I mean, that's that's tough to hear. I mean, I personally broke my leg on the field last year in a game against Al Smith. So, unfortunately, I have a at least a little bit of a basis to know kind of what he's doing all went to this. I mean, it's the worst. I mean, you don't want anybody ever to have to go through something like that. I just felt sick and terrible. What is that feeling though when you break your leg? It's not good. Not good. What are you insured? Brian. I didn't I didn't know it was broken. So with mine, I thought it was probably just an ACL or something because I I heard a stat prop high Sumed. It was my yell. So they came out today shell tests, and which is just moving your knee around your leg around. And then we went I tried to walk off. But that's a little weird. So we went over to the tent and the doctor was moving it around a little bit more trying to figure out exactly what was on. And there's a lot of stuff kinda crackling around there. And then we went the extra room and find out it was broken. So amid a little bit more sense. Why it hurt so bad? He's JJ watt. The Texans defensive in. He'll certainly be on the shortlist for defensive player of the year. Ten sacks already this season. We were wondering if the future of the pass rusher is is it more up the middle now with Aaron Donald or is it still going to be on the edge in your opinion? I think it can be either. Obviously you have a guy in caliber up the middle of is a sector. I don't think that we can say he's normal engine incredible. But I think that, you know, especially with guys able to chip on the double teams bringing tight end or something you can tend to find a way up the middle. And obviously, it's a quicker path that you can get there clean. I mean, it's it's just point to point B is a little bit quicker. But like I said, it takes a guy of very high caliber to be able to do it the way he's doing it. How do you feel when you want your brother play? Were brothers. Yeah. Extremely proud. I mean, it's nervous. It's the coolest thing in the world. No, not Dervis. But it's like watching my own like myself play like, it's like, you're you're live at every play like I can every single password for TJ. I'm like Kournikova trying to hit the ball. I want to quarterback the whole the ball. I wanted to you know, I wanna strip sack and everytime watching Ferrick live in the block with them last game. He had one for like nine yards, and it got called back, and I was like pissed off at the guy got called back on, you know. You live with them. And it's it's the coolest thing in the world to be able to watch NFL and have a brother out there. Yeah. I don't know what it's like for your parents when they watch they probably watch it differently than you do. Yeah. So they every week. They're generally on the road every single they don't go home for football there. One of our games like this week. They were Jacksonville for TJ's games. And I was looking at the same time. So Gatorade an awesome absolutely to pretty much every single stadium in the in the league. So they they get my family sweet at all our weekends. So they have a sweetener watching T J outfield in my game on TV. And my dad was telling me something that was interesting. I didn't even think about here's like so we can watch both. He said, but both teams kicked off first game. So you're both on the field the exact same time. So it's as a tough dilemma for them. But they're always watching, you know, which quarterback you sacked the most in your career. I think it's probably the locker. Maybe look. Yeah. You got him ten times. Playing twice a year. It's a third batch. Blake Bortles is second on that list. Okay. Yeah. The colts are a little bit different. And Andrew luck. Is you know, they not giving up sacks enemy's comeback player of the year. I don't know you're going to be up for comeback player of the year with you and lock in there. Are you starting to credible job? I mean, I mean what they've been able to accomplish. And obviously goes on. Player. And I think that we all knew that if you could get healthy from. Yeah. Right. Felt the same way after the last couple of years he'll be back to playing the way that he knew he could. And he's been able to do that. He makes quick decisions. It gets the ball out quick. He's he's a great player is Thursday going to be a cheat day. Yes. Very excited about it. My parents. But the cooking out. So I believe I saw that with some before. And he's been known to put the pie before Thanksgiving Day. Anyway. So I make sure it stays out before we get to Thursday. Could you take out a full Turkey yourself? I wouldn't pick the Turkey to be the thing. I fully take out on a thanksgiving table. I think it would definitely be the pie or possibly the mashed potatoes and gravy. Well, happy thanksgiving to you and congrat- so far on the season. Good luck against the titans. And always appreciate your time. Thanks. You guys have a great. They're JJ want Texans defensive in. It'll be up for comeback player of the year. More importantly for him defensive player. The already wanted three times as anybody want it three times in NFL history. Lawrence taylor. Bruce Smith, Reggie White. When it mclovin, I don't think. So I'm not sure how long the awards been around. Okay. Double check that Aaron Donald c have one. We got to figure out. How many he has he'll be chasing him. Yeah. Aaron Donald one at last year. Didn't he but I'm gonna guess that those two and Khalil Mack? It would probably be those three will MAC I heard a little bit. Yeah. But he's still been disrupt. Oh, yeah. Still been incredibly disruptive. But. I don't know if they just look at the numbers because Aaron Donald is going to have the sack totals there. But JJ got ten so far. I don't know what they go. Like if we're looking at the MVP or offense should player of the year. You're looking at numbers. I think numbers are big and that award with sacs if they're gonna see that Aaron Donald number sacks forced fumbles those kind of things. Yes. Boring defensive player of the year. Joe? Greene twice Lawrence Taylor three times, including I got double check. He may have gotten it as a rookie, which is nuts. Bruce Smith has a couple Reggie White. Any it feels like if you've won defensive player of the year at least twenty s you've gone into the hall of fame. That's correct. Reggie White Bruce Smith, Mike single, Terry. Lawrence taylor. Joe green? I mean, I think if you win once you're strong candidate, well is JJ want hall of fame right now. You know, this gets back to, you know, Terrell Davis and gale sayers. Like if you had that short window but productive window. You're a transcendent player. But let's say JJ watt doesn't play after this this season. He get the gale sayers treatment probably or the Terrell Davis treatment if he'll say he could not come back for that last injury. Probably. Yeah. I'm looking to solicit defense players in two thousand six Jason Taylor defense, and he was a first ballot hall of Famer. Well, you had Tom Brady who wrote a letter for Jason Taylor. If you're a voter, and you're going to value something a contribution here to the voting process, and you go, oh who's this letter from? Oh, this is from Tom Brady. And then you know, he has these verbal bouquets with Jason Taylor. That certainly helps we have a few who aren't going in. Bob sanders. Remember him with gas? He just couldn't stay healthy. He was very disruptive. But you know, what you're five nine and two hundred pounds. Thank you. See what about Jane's Harrison two thousand eight former Steeler. Yeah guy. Yeah. He probably won't. I've never heard him as a serious fame candidate. I could be wrong. We did have the unbelievable touchdown return in the Super Bowl. I mean that was a huge return. It always felt like it was a collective effort with the Steelers with their defense. Maybe not. I mean, you thought James Harrison you game plan for James Harrison. But I don't know if he stood out the way single -tario Reggie White or LT or JJ watt Yarmuk love one more lewke one time defensive player fourteen four time first team all pro he's going to be a whole Famer. Thanks. So if he can does you have to play a little more with some of his health concerns with concussions. Yes. But then it might be that, you know, we start to look at these careers differently because of the health issues with some of these players and Leuke Kley would it feels like Lucas one more concussion away from not being able to play again. I mean that that's how tenuous it feels with Leuke. But I think Lukic lease all the Famer I think they would vote JJ watt in as a hall of Famer. All right. What's poll question? We're going with mclovin. Was that a great game last night? Is that what the question was? We could go there. We have a couple of other options off the game pollyannaish. Who's the biggest winner last night? Tyreek hill had two hundred fifteen yards. I think that would qualify. Aaron Donald obviously, the big plays Jared Goff or Patrick Mahomes. Both had huge numbers or here's a go in the NFL competition committee because they've gotten what they wanted. The NFL in general. Yeah. I would think the NFL in general. Yeah. I would think so I agree more than any individual in that land. Yes. Yeah. I think this is one of those Aaron Donald moments where you go. Oh, that's right. He held out. And now you look at him. And you say he's worth whatever they're paying him Tyree. Kill might be the explosive. They most explosive player in the NFL might be the fastest player in the NFL. I think Jared Goff if you can be the number one overall pick and be underrated. Jared Goff is underrated believe it or not and with Mahomes. I think you're seeing in some of the Rams said this after the game he seemed a little rattled when the game was on the line. Now, you know, I don't know how rattled, but you know, you're responsible for five turnovers. And I started to think about that. The chiefs could have scored about seventy points last night. I can when you think of the turnovers if they didn't have let's say they had to turnovers, you know, maybe they're scoring seventy points last night. Yeah, pulling. Yeah. The Rams defenders have a point they held Mahomes to four hundred seventy eight yards and six touchdowns. Yeah. He was rattled kept him. Imagine. If he wasn't rattled would he would have done last night their quarterback rating. They both were one one seventeen golf Mahomes last night. I would have thought Gough had a better night than just a hair better Mahomes. I'd say the NFL one last night because we're just talking now I thought the officials were horrible at times in this was supposed to be an all star crew. But if you have an all-star crew, they don't work together. But I mean, you can't be throwing laundry all the time just ease up a little bit. But when you have a hold on a punt. I mean, come on really just felt like, you know, these officials they were they were getting in the way, I think they wanted to let you know that it all star crew was here, and we're going to call it like an all star crew. Well, you almost took away from the game. All you almost became the headline here. Now, we'll get to your phone calls on this. Like, I said, we've got a busy show here. Reggie Miller will stop by. Kurt Warner was on the call last night. I'm curious what he thought he probably loved it with all the offense. And it's a copycat league. It's like Golden State. You know, when you watch the Kansas City Chiefs, you watch the saints in you're watching the Rams now. Everybody wants to do it. Not everybody can do it. Because if I look at common denominator there, I got great offense who've minds here, I got Andy Reid. Great offensive mind. I got Patrick Mahomes. Very bright young kid with a great arm. I got drew Brees with Sean Payton, another bright ofensive mind. I got Sean McVay an bright offense of mine and I got Jared Goff. Great pupil. You gotta have that. Now, the the great offensive mind. And that's what that's what been missing in Cleveland, in my opinion. Have a great offense of mine. If you're gonna help Baker Mayfield junior the third and these other young quarterbacks in buffalo if Josh Allens going to improve and be something, you gotta have the offense in mind there to help you. But you know, Salo to the big twelve that's what the NFL is. Or that's what the NFL is about to become. We're back after this with our play of the day, Dan Patrick show. Okay.

There's still so much to be thankful for you've got the Rangers. And the flyers squaring off the discover NHL thanksgiving showdown that Friday November twenty third only on NBC always loved watching. The couple of tweets here is from preacher. Nan are rule. Changes the reason for more offense than defense. I'm gonna ask Chris SIMS about that. I'm gonna ask Kurt Warner about that coming up next hour. Joe summers tweets, how do you think? This new NFL trend will change the draft NFL is turning into the big twelve. Yeah. I agree. That's my Patrick Mahomes looks comfortable they're probably saying this is like college for me here. Aggie jet, Mark. So the big twelve is Bach for its lack of defense. But now we're heralding the same game as the future of the new NFL. I'm heralding your offense. The you know, the NFL is always behind college when it comes to offense. And that's what's happening. So this influx of spread offense. Is that we've seen certainly with the big twelve. Yes. I'll mock the defense is in the big twelve but I'm going to praise the offense. They're owed. L tweets. I'm curious. Your thoughts was Todd Gurley. Hurt not injured last night or was McVeigh too cute with the play calls. I didn't know it felt like he was hurt because his backup played a little bit more than you would expect. And I didn't have enough carries. Both teams abandoned the run. And you have both you know, teams have great running backs there. But I thought maybe there was something wrong with Todd Gurley. So right there with you. Did we decide on the poll question? No sure did not. But we could put up did you like last night's game? Do you think it'd be ninety five percent is any are there any allies hold out to what defense anymore? You know, which probably the keepers of the gate, you know, keepers of the flame here with the NFL. You might get the old school. That says, well, you know, we need that need a little bit more there. You can have too much of of a good thing. It feels like let's say you need a little bit more. But I do do people want to go back to seventeen thirteen. Well, no, that's not what I'm saying. A little bit more of a chanted. I agree with you. I think the defense is no what they can do and not do that might help. Because I think there are times when defenses player doesn't know what he can do or not do. And I think that that's unfair going into a game. And it almost seems like it's game by game official by fischel that it changes the interpretation there. Yes, mclovin. I'd another poll option are either teams we saw last night going to play in the Super Bowl. That would be the interesting question. And I think because the lack of defense that's where people would say that these two teams will not play in the Super Bowl either one which would be shocking if you look at how talented they are how much fun they are to watch. But are they going to be when you need to score? Can you score when you need to stop can you stop? I think that those and those are question March with both of these teams now they do banged up secondaries. And you're hoping to keep to lead comes back. Eric berry comes back for Kansas City. I do think, and you know, this was told to me a couple of weeks ago. Kansas City's defense is getting better. Like don't don't sleep on the fact that you don't know the names there, but they do have a couple of good players. How many good players do you need to have a good defense? How about this the overnight rating for that game was eleven point three which is I think lower than you would you would expect for a game. Like that. Yes. Put in context with us. I believe it was a Sunday night game. The Packers Packers patriots to drew a fifteen point six Richard Deitz, the immediate critic for Sports Illustrated, but that's comparing a son in game. Two Monday, Monday, always suffers a little bit compared to something. I can't sunny. It's right there. You flow right over to it. Never new games. I wonder what that would be like a Monday night game. If the Rams and the chiefs were Sunday night and patriots Packers were Monday night Rogers Brady hype. They I think the veterans still probably pull a little more than Gotha Mahomes. Everyone knows Rogers Brady. Yeah. This is the poll question you could choose the Super Bowl matchup today. Rams chiefs or any other matchup? You get to choose it today based on entertainment. You don't have a dog in a fight. I'd love to see it again. Jozy rematch? Don't live up to what you would expect. But then this lived up to the hype which is the amazing part of it. But if you're saying those teams meet I think the saints are the best team that I've seen this year. But I don't that may not mean anything. Yeah. Make love I wanna see. The Rams saints rematch is the game of the playoffs. She'd rather see that in the NFC title game. Maybe then you would the Rams chiefs in the Super Bowl. Probably I think that is the two best teams. But I gotta tell you. I'm curious how the chiefs plays. Hey, the patriots or the Steelers or one of these establish teams. Well, the chiefs have already played the patriots and loss in Foxborough. But that was another shootout Dahbi fund. I think the semi finals are going to be really good this year. But if the chiefs have home field advantage, and then all of a sudden patriots gotta come to town. Yeah. That would be fun fun season. Yeah. It is. But then again, I thought Tom Brady was on his way out is that what the latest could be could be it's week by week maybe past bypass for Tom Brady. All right. Your phone calls coming up, but we'll ask irt Warner and Christians. Both will join us coming up next hour and Lamar Jackson. The ravens quarterback is he still the starting quarterback question. Mark would would the ravens allow Lamar Jackson to come on? If he wasn't the starting quarterback that I was curious about Reggie Miller. Will join us his well the upheaval with the Washington Wizards what could have been with that back court. And now those guys could be jettison. They could be traded here. Crazy. So we'll talk to Reggie will join us coming up in the final hour. Let me see Email address DP, Dan, Patrick dot com. Twitter handle at DP show.

The Kansas City chiefs beat the Houston Texans. Fifty one to thirty one after being down. Twenty four points the chiefs win by twenty points in the same game beating. Dusty Gusty Lichens J. basically being have you ever seen anything like that in your life. No that was Simply amazing but it's one of those things you sit there and watch US homes. Get cooking led the homes get cooking and see what happens with the Houston Texans but the only team in the NFL trail by twenty game and win by twenty in a playoff game again pizzas but a season of destiny to have this comeback the fact that they have home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Thanks thanks to Ryan Fitzpatrick rain. Tannehill a battle of big twelve quarterbacks Knicks briefly if C. Title Game Yes can't hill was still in the big twelve before before the aggies moved to the GonNa let that go all right now but WANNA come back. What a game bipedal homes? What a game by Chelsea you know? When he got early drop I was getting tweets from people people about Kelsey not stepping up games? Like wait a minute. He's now got three games over one hundred yards in the postseason. Seven Games looks back off a little bit on Travis Kelsey but but no. I haven't seen the game like that that's A. It's one of those that you remember where you're just like the colts loss. Wash it out of your memory. Wash that out of your memory this game. Maybe forget all about the colts playoff loss worth saying again. We said it last year will state again. You're Kansas City chiefs. Just two wins away from a super bowl title here. If you want to get involved nine one three five seven six seven six ten you can also hit us text line six nine nine three zero six I will. We'll get to the calls the second I just want to talk about where I think this game changed. It was to decisions by Bill. O'Brien in the first quarter. The first one was year team is now up. What twenty one points? You're on the Kansas City. Thirteen Yard Line Right. You opt on fourth and one going to go for the play called timeout. You come back on the field you kick the field goal so you end up taking three points. So it's twenty four nothing now. It's still a three possession game. You didn't gain any possessions by that right so the chiefs he's score pretty quickly finally after the McColl Hartman return for fifty eight yards woke everybody up. She's score quickly right. Texans get the ball back again. You're up you're we're in control of the game. Why are you going for a fake punt dirty? Dan sniffs it out all of a sudden. It's a ten point game in the blink of an eye and then Patrick mahomes and the chiefs really never looked back from their twenty eight point. Quarter for Patrick Mahomes something we saw earlier this season. And you end up putting forty one on answered points points on the Texans between twenty and twenty one game minutes in the would think about it was it was. It was kind of like a false lead for the Texans. Yeah they had blown covers. Very Kenny stills got that fifty four yard touchdown for Shawn Watson the blocked kick for a touchdown for the Houston Texans but it was kind of a false lead for the the texts. They were up there but they were. You know a fortunate to have the lead the VID- but yes the game did swing on that fourth day on Play by Bill Brian. Who was going to go forward? Timeout changed changed his mind. He'll the Kansas City chiefs will host the Tennessee Titans for the AFC title next weekend at Arrowhead Stadium. That miracle last night where it wasn't really a miracle I mean it wasn't like they had to pull it out. They were dominant over the Baltimore. Ravens new of an opponent here where they seem beatable again. You lost the titans earlier in the ear. But here we have a game where you gotTa feel pretty good about it. I know the chiefs will be favored in this game and who knows you could be heading down to Miami this time next week and they did it without Chris Jones twice in this year. Play the Houston Texans. They lose during the regular season gametime decision the day. He doesn't play for the chiefs. But I'll tell you. This is a collective effort of getting to the quarterback. I think thank Clark Giddy Grayson. Frank Clark's Clark. Did an outstanding job setting that edge really being harassed her to to Shawn Watson in Texas given up forty nine sacks during the regular season seven last week to the buffalo bills. It is a problem with pass protection for the Houston Texans but a whole lot of leading going on when the chiefs go seventh straight drives arrives with the touchdown. Eighth Straight drive scoring points. They kick a field goal. After the seventh straight drives for a touchdown. I think this morning too when you find out okay Chris. Jones isn't isn't going to play in this game after you thought that okay. It's a game time. Decision Hill eventually. Go Four Frank Clark to step up like he did. And I've said this about Frank Clark entire and Matthew in the past these guys signed major contracts yet. They still ball out our own Yahoo Sports Tarez pallor away says the contract year is undefeated needed. Not For these guys. They don't really subscribe to that the other way they play hard. You can tell Frank Clark wanted this today. That's after signing it. I teach us a Gamer. He's intrinsically motivated baited. It's exactly what you're looking for when you sign a guy to a long term deal after a not so great two thousand eighteen. You GotTa give Credit Bread Beach and some of these deals and some of these guys who brought in a pro noble starter and Frank Clark. He's got proble started. McColl Hardman as a returner Frank Clark with three six. He wasn't a hundred percent healthy. The first time they played the Texas he was out. There still lead that pinched nerve problem mad being able to feel a couple of fingers but he was perfectly healthy today any set that edge. Don't forget the Terrell suggs impact. The fact that he's taken these guys looked at different parts parts of the game and showed them where they can get better. The Stars on offense for the Game Travis Kelsey in Damian Williams each with three touchdowns A Piece Matt Patrick Mahomes homes ends up finishing with three hundred and twenty yards or twenty one yards five touchdowns no interceptions a rating of one. Thirty four point six a great game for Patrick Mahomes again. Nine nine one three five seven six seven extent or hit us on the text line six nine three zero six. Let's start with Reggie Reggie. What's up man? I got no voice man. I don't I don't care when I don't care win. The game change it. Don't even matter man. This post game analysis just be all glory and praise to Patrick Mahomes man like straight up roll like that was a brady A John elway asks comeback and not only that but man to the whole team demand They they didn't get down on the tank when they could have I'm just man I.

You know what I'm saying. Go home you know each the H.. Bovine and you and you barbecue sauce man. Let's get ready to go to Tennessee about those. You know what to his pete. Holmes did lead the chiefs in rushing shing fifty three yards on seven carries Frank Clark the way he stood up the three sex they. How about Travis Kelsey who was questionable haste week to play tin catches hundred? Thirty four yards three touchdowns. You WanNa talk about someone cutting out their pain in delivering. That was Travis Costa today with the three touchdowns it one hundred and thirty four yards. It has no wonder that Travis this Kelsey that people will talk about the drops but they will talk about the fact he led the AFC in receiving yardage tight ends or wide receivers fourth in the NFL in in receiving yards. Is this year one travis. Kelsey who stood up in bald in this game for the Geez even playing hurt when this game seemed like a disaster in the beginning you have travis Kelsey with that key drop and things are starting to unravel and I said to you off air. I said how often in so many big games does travis Kelsey kind of disappear. Well that was not the case. Today Day leaves the chiefs in receiving one hundred thirty four yards ten catches three touchdowns. Just a fantastic effort when you need it by the chiefs Tida. Let's go to Chester Chester. Yeah what's up down about twenty four point. Oh and they say the I I is it. They will get a startled but they get started at the end. We won by twenty post after the been down by twenty five points when somebody say possession somebody say you. I'll do the one two three talk the six pack law. We just started winward coach.

So he's not an idiot he's getting under his schedule is a multi-million so you don't think so this this is this is skip bayless by the way if you give me why are you giving this guy airtime turn it off. I can't prove my point. Of what a freaking idiot. His skip bail bring you pull your tongue off his ass dusty in play the sound. Let's keep the calls role and good. Butch what's up Bush gentleman how about those Kansas City chiefs well This is like like you're GonNa hear numerous times over one of the more credible games I've ever seen no really Like like you mentioned you know we went through a patch. Is there at the beginning of the game. I watch these games here locally in Seattle to place call bills off Broadway in Capitol Hill so I had to take about ten minutes to stand outside in the Colt because I kept shouting so loud inside of this bar watching US twenty four ninety but I I was able to collect myself I realized I rebound early and it was the first quarter first quarter just past milliken office. We had when you what type of players we had pull themselves together able to come through. Eighty seven is the future hall of Famer in my eyes he got it out and he was the catalyst to that offense. When other things were happening we had to go to our plus guys? DNA plus guy get her off his back on track tracking cash before ball Fifteen drafting fifteen at number ten twenty seventeen NFL draft. I told People's drafting peyton manning that's the type of the fact he's adult title is often so I was glad to see that. And lastly I'll leave you with his last bit. You know like we talked about like you like you mentioned before Pete Eighty seven sometimes get the nips and these big games games but he was able to bounce back from it but how about any read the steadying force of anti come out with an a plus call. She can't one an eight plus call sheets. uh-huh rant Swanson. You don't have to worry about anymore man you got it. We're back in twenty eighteen version offense. This is going to be very fun on our way to Miami bring on Derrick artillery. Go chiefs yeah there you go so the chief says as Bush was looting two will play the Tennessee. Titans can really is their focal point. He reminds me of someone that would be on the Mon- Stars Team Jam. He's that type of player that he's he's tough tough to bring down that's really their only big threat. Can't it's funny. This is Kelsey nonsense. He's played he's played seven. Playoff Games now has five touchdowns he had forty five catches for four twenty five live. Come into this game. He's got the chiefs free record for receiving yards back off the Kelsey being wagon or excuse me trashing Kelsey. Because I've seen it on the text line I've seen it on twitter auto trashing got plenty of it. I don't know that just in the Games bigger games it's not like he's threes before the postseason including over one hundred yards against the colts last year. The postseason we think what we WANNA think but not think about reality when it comes sometimes Travis Kelsey I mean last year low to the chiefs were blanked in the in the first half of the AFC title and and Kelsey himself said we weren't ready. I mean that everyone's fault budget his. Yeah no agreed. I'm just saying there has been times in the past where you rely on him during the year and he's great he's reliable. He's had games where there are drops you saw the beginning of the day. He was able to respond. He rebounded around one thirty four yards three touchdowns. This was to signature travis. Kelsey game I think a lot of us were waiting for. ABC Read Scott Selects. tweet before the Zolak not kind to for those of you. Don't the Scott Zolak. You can't say on the air but it's it isn't it isn't it. Isn't nice nine one three five seven six seven six ten. Dan and Casey K.. Dan what's hey thank Teton. How about that great comeback? I think the yeah. You're right the momentum change on that fake pundits dirty den making the play on the opening kickoff when the chaser down twenty four fourteen with that much kickoff by Tyson. Break come back. I'm ready to stop their kindred guys. It was incredible to watch this game because a stand was saying we were sitting here. We were stunned. Arrowhead stadium was quiet. We thought for a second there that this season was over. I was saying today man. I think we're GONNA get a decent amount of fire. Andy Chatter tonight just because of how badly it was going and in the blink of an eye this thing just flipped on its head that she's rolled and and the Texans couldn't do anything right. There's a whole lot of the league going on. PD even the text line Hussein. Fire Andy Reid people at the stadium. That are cheering. The chiefs at the end of the game were booing the Kansas City chiefs earlier in the game and the text line was full of fire. Andy in there's a lot of tweets being deleted because the people give it up on this team way too early I don't ever delete tweets. I just keep them all out unless they make unless they have a Typo Hypo- I don't like to make typos. You know what I mean. Nine one three five seven six seven six Chandra. What's going on? Hey at Sandra and just wanted you to know I got off the text line with Blake and he's agreed after our wedding that all of our children's maimed mahomes there. You Go A lot of Patrick Mahomes Little Boys or girls Blake things you brought up the. I'm not here. Man's they're getting married unless it's being and she just mispronouncing your name those. Are we talking about the bill does. Oh Blake Bell issued a blake. And she's still. Your girlfriend has been thirty stolen Shandra. Chandra wouldn't be surprised. Let's GO DENVER DENVER. What's up? Hey J B compete man calling in from San Francisco. This victory three nice wanted to say go chiefs. How about those guys did a great job all year with the show? been listening every day at work We had about one hundred fifty cheese fans out of the sports bar today in downtown. SF I still got there. Can't run the ball when we need to kill time but hey fifty get one point so refused to update. I'M GONNA kick out of the callers. Today was to different people because he said Hey. PJ and being. I think maybe he thought so you were Jay. And he's bank them to people. Don't give them that's fine. That's the type of impact you're having on folks out there that's GonNa you you would you think of the game. Hey Man I thought it was amazing. Now that first quarter had me and my feelings they really did. It had me to point I. I was seeing ghosts. I felt like I was Sam I felt really bad. I felt like it was the coast game and in the playoffs. And then I saw flip switch which I switch flip and it was like our back and I don't know if it's which mahomes or with or with any I don't know which one is switch with but the defense was was trying to best just to keep us in it and shout out to Abby shut out the spags show. That's a Frank Clark who earned his money all for uh-huh second half of the season man. It's it's been amazing in Matthew. He should've had dinner. Says that one is good. You don't want to the AFC championship happy ship on. Thank you you know. What's funny? Is the these national narratives about mahomes. You have a quarterback be though lead is safe for another another team when you have Pat Mahomes. He proved that the F. C. title game. He proved that in this game. PAPPA homes people are talking about this number but he's never been beaten by more than one score never it. He's he's been the two straight. AFC Title Games this is the future of the AFC number fifteen editor Wade stadium. So yes we skip bayless of the world. Have these hotcakes to take another quarterback over PAT. Mahomes they need to shut up pulled her head out of it and understand. The pet mahomes says that killer instinct wishes other quarterbacks accent. Now it's funny. Hey Jackson what happened to him was he beat by more sleep. I think he was in the in the matter of twelve to sixteen hours hours here. Whatever it is I you know? I'm not a great math guy. But you have Lamar Jackson basically whimpering out of the postseason getting beat by Tennessee team. That really had no business business winning that game and then you come to today and Patrick Mahomes essentially took the bull by the horns. Wins this game for the chiefs. There was no answer for Patrick. Mahomes once achieves turned it on and the Shawn Watson couldn't couldn't keep up with them and to me that answered the question. This is the biggest stage right here. This is twenty four points instead. I go ice scheme came away and he couldn't do it. You pet homes twenty four points and see what happens. You think he gets. Beat by twenty like Watson today. I think Watson's agreed quarterback. I doubt the bill. O'Brien in the Denver broncos that are fired their offense coordinator. Now I feel bad for drew. Lock you need the quarterback coach combination like the Kansas City chiefs at but Lamar was was beaten led by a drum last night yet. Seen this from Pat Mahomes. So don't give me this killer instinct stuff. That guy has the killer instinct. Bet Guy was mad about about the chiefs lost last year the Patriots for several weeks. That guy was talking to the offensive line when they were down. Twenty four points at hey and he was talking to one play at a time. One time. We'll get this job done. That guy went out there and threw for three hundred yards and five touchdowns. So don't give me what does Shawn Watson. Don't give me Lamar Jackson that that Guy Number fifteen is going to back the back. AFC Title Games. That is cool in the first guy from the chiefs since nineteen sixty thirty six to win. Seven Games on the Road Watson actually had some decent numbers himself in this game. Thirty one and fifty to three hundred eighty eight yards two touchdowns he also also had a touchdown on the ground. But it just wasn't enough because the Texans defense had no answer for what the chiefs were doing from the second. Amazing what you can do against the the The caller also mentioned Frank Clark and thwarts saying I think and bringing up especially in this game with the three sack effort. When you need it with Chris Jones we talked about Clark and he was a little bit invisible at the beginning of the season? And you find out later. Oh he was dealing with all of the this neck injury. This nerve thing at ah time here late. In the season he was sick. I think you really saw tonight. It's true when Clark is actually fully healthy even on this type of stage grand stage we can talk about it all all night but even on this type of stage he showed up when you needed him three sacks. That's an effort you needed desperately and honestly I you know that's a major part of why the chiefs won this football game. But not only that. But it wasn't even what he was getting sex as well because they didn't want right. You know making him feel it. Sean will play in Free Lord just hitting with the show. He whiffed whiffed basically two times if you kept going shows his drive and what what he means and what he knew what he believes in this team and I I just I just commend the the effort Frank Clark tonight. Let's keep the ball rolling with some phone calls. Nine one three five seven six seven six ten. Let's go out to Kobe Kobe. What's up okay? The boys first of all. I just want to say that I'm really happy. Carlos pray decided to play quarterback for Texas tonight number two there anything honestly better than being used in the playoffs. I mean he's come back to this great number three. I WANNA do my very very best in Princeton adjuster. All right thank you for Houston has to hate Kansas City. They just do after the royals came back and punked him in the playoffs. The Houston Astros After that thirty thirty thirty to nothing win over the Texans the last time we played them in the playoffs. Yeah bottom twenty four points and still beating twenty and covering Houston has the eight Kansas. The city I I I agree with you. I agree with you. Let's go to Justin in Belton Justin. How're you doing? Hey I just wanted to apologize That's what we got down twenty four to nothing. I was like man we're GonNa go to the playoffs slumps again. I just want to apologize and man Patrick mahomes niece to be the MVP again. Look at Lamar Mark Jackson. Last night he can bring that team up Patrick Mahomes. After we went down he was sitting like man. Come on those do of this and he brought us back he is the MVP again. Well I don't know the easily the the regular season that's right which they go by the MVP so it's probably going to be Lamar but hell I would. Trade Differ Super Bowl ring any day but again also the Super Bowl. MVP still on the table though. It is the Super Bowl Oh. MVP's on the table. You write your own mind. You're watching these games. WHO's the real? MVP or not. I think you know the answer to that. But here's the thing with this division this division. I took some some luck for the chiefs to get in. Homefield advantage. Took Jonah Hill in Ryan Fitzpatrick who would have ever thought anybody would say those words out of their mouth but get used to this in the AFC. Would they Andy Reid in path homes. This thing is something that's not going away. Any reads mastery this division twenty seven and three since two thousand fifteen is not going away. That's five six wins a year right. There you added another five to six wins in the chiefs are sitting right there again with that by eighty five and one in the postseason after by seventeen and three in the regular season after by. It does matter to Andy Reid. Having that time off didn't look like an early early early. Footballs for quarters. There were a lot of mistakes I think early to. That took away from that Matt. mcmullen of the chiefs. He just said that Andy Reid came out and said no new injuries to report in the post game. Everybody is healthy which is a very good thing now again to the AFC championship next week. When we come back we will get to hear the head coach of your Kansas City chiefs? You're listening to the our head. Pride Post Game Post game show. The Arabic tried post game show. Here's Pete Sweeney J. Pink -Ly Welcome back into the Arrowhead Pride Post game show the chiefs with a fifty fifty one to thirty one win over the Houston Texans they are headed to the AFC championship game. This is a regular thing now the chief's in the AFC title game. Yes ever since then Joe Monty and the bills who is incredible. This is almost like getting used to this. I love it. I love it any Irwin Stadium nonetheless. I want to get involved text. Line six nine three zero six. You can also call us nine one three five seven six seven six ten. Andy Reid is speaking right now. We will have with him for you shortly. Let's back out to the phone lines and talk to Ben. Ben Would you think of the game going on guys got here shadowed Arrowhead West Dover at Jalapeno we just let chiefs. La Nice not play was rocking insane. Nobody left everybody. Stay strong that tougher supporter and boy were we is it. Reggie joined other now. I don't think Reggie goes to that one and it's called Jalapeno Pizza. I've actually done a special on Pete. I went yes I went out there for a game. And they have all the chiefs fans on the West Coast and they get together and really goes nuts too and they play the music. They played old touchdown song that I know some people like but that's a whole another conversation for another day let's keep it going with the calls. Nico it's going on Nico Yeah Yeah I just wanted to say I listen to the show every week but I'm from Springfield Illinois so I'd never get to call in. I actually drilled the Kansas City today to watch the game at a local bar. Had A fricking laugh and go wait a minute. Wait a minute you drove all the way to Casey to watch the bar more love that I did just want to be here in town. Yeah ally because I wanted to be like you know with a good atmosphere you know green ground. That's great and man and and it was totally worth. I mean the first quarter and a half you know scared me but that's it's dedication driving here not even tickets. You just want to be in a bar around. She's fans. I love it. Yes sir the chiefs have lots of play for right and we hope this goes goes to a as much as a super bowl championship. I think that's what everybody wants right even if that doesn't happen though today's the day people don't want that today's the type of day that you'll remember member forever where you are very down your sad. You'd think the chiefs are gonNA got all excited again. This is happening to us again and then a complete reversal of fortunes. You'll remember watching this game wherever you did so forever. And I'm sure it's the same on the other side of it if you're a fan of the Houston Houston Texas Pete. That was doing the postgame show. We were on remote when the chiefs Often lead the colts. Chuck Pagano in the Andrew. Luck right in. If I didn't know what to say and I had together my thoughts before you go on air for the post game. I did not know what to say. You know what I hadn't started yet because this would have been a little bit like at that would have been different than blowing lead. But it's getting your doors blown off. It was going to be bad all the hopes of the season through last year. How down we felt the Patriots game like many camps the Ot as the hundred degrees in Saint Joe Watching this team come together? What ready to give up football yet? Not really give up football for the Kansas City chiefs in sit there and watch the title Games but you know what they come back you. You're right you you know where you're at right now. What you were feeling? It was the highs in the low. It makes football the best reality show on television sports. In general the best reality show to experience the highs and lows feeling down out in the teen and come back and win by twenty. That's bowman that is football. I'll forever remember that I was next to you while you were chomping down on pickles. Hot Ones A hot pickles. They they smelled really great pickles. Rally pickles. Pete that's right nine one three five seven six seven six ten. Let's go to Luke in North Kansas City. Luke what did you think of this big win for the chiefs. Hey being you know me well. It's still up for debate. Debate but The thing with the thing with this game is I felt like it was a lot like A really good play that saves a no hitter and suddenly you just realize that like Oh this is meant to be but also the thing about the chiefs is that like they were like so down now and everybody in the city was like. Oh well. We're doing this again. And then suddenly they won and like honestly it feels a lot like twenty fifteen like you know like suddenly things go bad and people are like. Oh Man we're done and then we'd blow them out and so it's just like it's so good whole city. I mean like for one. I was not looking forward to going to work this week. Because if we lost this game it would just be a depressing atmosphere atmosphere. But now that we've won like I mean the the buzz that we hadn't twenty fifteen is going to be in Kansas City in two thousand twenty. This buzz does this. Buzz was real luke. I mean. This buzz was real. It's the one thing about. It is who who didn't give up on this team was Andy Reid. Steve spag Knowle's players pending the home. Didn't give up on this this league. He lied he was talking to his lineman fans. One thing those players did not quit. We've seen a lot of players in teams rollover and quit. Not Looking at you Baltimore. Come to conclusions you want. You could see the Texans quit a little bit at the end of the Texans quitting the game. One thing is this chiefs. Group didn't quit. They had bigger fish to fry the season. The owner said anything less than a super bowl is not a success. Winning Oldham thing is not a success this team head head of mission did he have this unfinished business t shirt because they don't do that but this is clearly unfinished business for the Kansas City chiefs. I love it when they won in the AFC west again for the fourth straight time they have those shirts. The West is not enough even though all the rest of the teams are wearing those shirts. I felt it applied to the Kansas City chiefs. Because they they didn't really celebrate those. I haven't even seen those shirts pete the why haven't even been around town and seeing the AFC west championship shirts and hats surely exists. Hopefully they're your lawn mowing hat your your lawn mowing shirt or your shirt because I think people in this one that bigger prize I think four years ago you're really excited about winning the AFC west. I'm sure a lot of people went out unbought shirts and now. It's just the norm now. It's the norm. You don't want that shirt you say I'm waiting the three or four weeks and it's going to take to get myself a super bowl shirt. Are we talking about the chiefs. Fifty one one to thirty one win over the Houston. Texans Andy. Reid spoke to the media right after the game. Here is the chief said coach really No injuries injuries other than Chris wasn't able to answer today and You know we'll go back to the drawing board with that Did try before the game. So and then clayborn was excused again for personal reasons so But everybody else made through healthy and I thought as a group played really. Well great mindset game so guys had their mind set for about oil and they put it down when you're down twenty four nothing you know. If you don't have a good locker room things go the wrong way for you. Guys all hung together and we've talked about the strength strength of it and they did a great job fans. I thought our fans are tremendous so Nobody nobody out there gave up and they all stayed and cheered us on the grounds crew again Getting everything cleared out that snow I think is a big thing too so anyways McColl stepped chopped up kind of got some juice going there with return. I thought I got us going a little bit. I was proud of sorts and again for Dan for stepping up and making a tackle on the fake field goal. Listen I thought building a nice job with that that was an opportune time. I thought to To call that and people are going to be upset at them but but from from a coaching standpoint. He was an inch away. Dan Did a nice job but it wasn't a bad. That wasn't a bad call. It's part of our guys for the red zone. There were seven and for eight in the Red Zone or defense played aggressive football day and spags Nice at a nice game plan and the guys is executed. I thought frank was just a beast today and is great for the honey. Badger to get himself When a guest all team there so I made a big smile on his face and and what else pat and Kelsey were phenomenal? They had a great day too. So I mean all the guys listen. It was good team win. And keep going with all the names but proud of the coaches AIRBNB. Had a nice game plan anytime. You just felt that. Listen we're not shooting ourselves in the foot we're GONNA be okay and And so we settled down and did a nice job and I like the encouragement that gave the guys he just hang with it. We're going to be fine and you know and then Dave could have also gone the other way. 'cause I mean you're talking about one of the great in the history of the game on the great special teams TMZ coaches and they could've easily on the tank on that. But he didn't he hung in there guys kind of rallied up and and they did a nice job so Coordinators coach is Greg game plan good execution and Problem for that. You're listening to chiefs head coach. Andy Reid on ten sports radio timers. Say Yeah I was living down twenty four zero. Obviously with you putting tyree can't hope distant gyms and then he must be the planet getting it on a Netflix. So these are things that we haven't done. I mean that's not us right so It was just a matter of selling it down and it Kinda common calm one of the storm and making sure that our guys You know knocked whatever roster. Whatever often calm down plays you know so? We've been doing that all year and it was important that we got back to doing that so we had dropped balls. Couple of missed tackles and dropped on the punt return so we had the block on the on the kicks on the pont there so for a score so I mean these are things that we that's not us and it was just a matter of everybody. Kinda settling down and you know getting a right so we did that at the moment. Twenty four dozen causing his score. Some points ah no one coming into the ball game if they win because they might have been trying to press do too much to start again and I. I didn't necessarily feel that I. It was kind of freak stuff like I said things. We haven't really done. I've only wear present. I say crazy easy things happening. And they kind of snowball Nassir a little bit. And we're a rebound which party seems can't do that. You attribute to the guys locker room right there. Talks broke down twenty four. How do you make sure it doesn't get away? Yeah I said listen. This isn't you I mean and let's just get back relaxed. Pump the breaks here for about a second and a focus refocus. And let's go. I mean that's it's that simple really. I mean you're in that situation. You've only got a few years to play this game. So you gotta get it done and No need to panic right now. That's not going to help it. Also he is trying to fix the problem guy what we did with their moment. You're listening to chiefs head coach. Andy Reid on six cents. What's radio where you felt like we're we're GONNA be okay during that comeback? You're like it's okay me long enough I mean I think we're always okay so we just keep fire and we're GONNA be all right and fix fix the problems. And that's what we do is has coaches or teacher so fix the problem and then let's go. I mean we had enough time. It was early so we had enough time. We just need to get going. We had a lot of good plays and You know one thing that I thought was good on. Eric's part was we didn't get and into a two minute mode a hurry up mode we just kind of stuck with it and I think the players kind of felt that on the offensive side. Sometimes you can jump in that too early and then all of a sudden you know there's a there's a time and place for it. I guess what I'm saying so if I jump into. Don't get mad at me. But there's his type place. Where did you think when it's fourth and inches that you are thirteen twenty one? Were you surprised at all the time out and kicked a goal there. Would you think that was a big spot in a gamed it they had. They felt like they get moved the ball to in their mind they. I'm sure bill was sitting there going. Listen we get this thing going here and we got to come out with some points Watch the game yesterday and and that was a number one team in the NFL. On on four thousand I mean. They're they're great at that and sometimes things don't work so I think he was just saying. Listen let's get. Let's get some points on and go with this thing and and And go so I get it. I mean I get how it works chance. Obviously take this game in celebrated forever and hasn't been looking ahead and some chimps second in hosting it here and how much I know you have to finally get that trophy. Obviously we'd love it has Lamar Hunt's name on it so I mean we'd love to have that but at the same time we gotta go through the process and make sure that we focus and you know we're playing a good football team and we've got to go back and make sure we have a good solid game plan and You know in the come on play. Well I mean that's really what it is so And then and then good things happen. Let's wrap up with the chiefs head coach right here. On the era ahead prod postgame show today it kills it kills. Banged up During the week and You know he fought through it He saw he didn't come out at halftime. He stayed up a little treatment As leg and so it's kind of all over the place not one exact spot kind of all over the place and you know it's is it tightened up on them so You know we. I'll tell you did. A Nice job was blake when he went in. I mean the nice series. We were able to go right downfield. Wasn't there be productive But again it was good to get back out there. I don't want to shortchange that either. Last you okay. Generic dating center job speaking of who had gotten up. I'm big time partial here. I know I'm with them every day. So I know I'll get is you you know. And so we were all pulling for players coaches. We're all pulling for them because we understand his value. I said before I'm listen. Somebody's loss are gained if he's still here but I know it'd be a great coach Matt Nolan. So why was the right Guy Right. Talk to that responsibility in that. Well listen he's not playing in the secondary like he did today he he's You you know one of our best special teams player not the best one. So that's how he kind of got into the League and and really made his name so we put them in those kind of situations and made a big play. That was big. That was a big one. That was a good call and the big play by By Dave Dave works on all that stuff and nice call by David even a nice play by Sorensen. Some it goes on. Excuse me to Patrick's demeanor and just state of the quarterback position and how it happened on the bench. He was talking everybody. Let's just settle down. I mean as a head coach. You can't you can't ask more than that. I mean when I leave your team. And he's just going. Hey listen we're going to be fine. Let's go let's not wait till the end of the fourth quarter. I mean let's go. He did that. She said. Coach Andy Reid. Talking after the chiefs big win at our had stadium today I think the thing that jumps out is just how calm he made. It seem like the chiefs stayed when down so many points in such an important game. Twenty four points winces a little amount of point three scores. You know. That's that's A. That's a big deficit and for them to stay calm and figure it out. Good on Andy Reid. Good and Eric the enemy enemy good on Patrick mom too is. If we're going to lose this game they beat themselves. I felt that cheeser better Texans beat themselves you know getting the punt blocked those type avert various the penalties which were limited this game. This team's been much better job. Seventeen the league in penalties in the regular season last year they were number. One that is progressing. Not beat beat yourselves. He gave credit homes going through and talking to the players. You know that's the thing you have a quarterback that doesn't panic and it's so hard to find quarterbacks that don't don't panic Patrick mahomes didn't because he's a winner he has that fire. He is that competitive. Desire Eighty read has at any reads on his seventh title Game Fifth near Ah Five in the NFC two in the AFC. This guy is on the cusp of doing something great. This team is four quarters. Yeah away from the Super Bowl. Six all time in total Wins the NFL. Regardless of postseason regular season sixth in the NFL. Just what nineteen behind curly. Lambeau for number V. He knows how to win but he stayed calm. And I think the chief deserve credit because they knew they were better under forgetting that Yosef frigging swept by the Astros back in two thousand fourteen. That look renew. The team was better than what it was playing and he was right because there with the game seven of a world series. Any read knows how good this team is. Eighty readers vote rejuvenated deer and it had been frustrating when they see everything all that the hard work they were beating themselves in that first. Half what type team pet mahomes you would team they had again. He's never been beat by one score. This could have been that a game but it wasn't but it was. I think a lot about Andy Reid especially during this time of year. Because he's been doing this now for two decades think about that. He's I've been a head coach for two decades in the League and winning. The Super Bowl has really alluded him and getting to the Super Bowl for the most part has the only had the one trip so we are entering the territory of his head coach. Who has seen everything? He's seen it all in the NFL except for one thing and that is as a head coach holding up. The Lamar Lombardi trophy. I you get the Lamar Hunt Trophy get back to where it belongs and then potentially win the Lombardi trophy and for him to have that Opportunity Means Salat. He loves this game. He loves the history of this game. And you're right. It's the one thing but he's hungry to win it. He's hungry to win that title. I can't believe you're not gonNA bring up the fact. He shattered up bill. He gave the bill dozer nice little shutout during the press conference at those Nice. We're talking about Patrick. Mahomes and his five touchdowns more than Blake Bell Mahomes spoke to the media after the Morales. Second Time Right. And what did you learn what happened last year disappointed. Obviously it's an amazing accomplishment. First off to you to be. AFC Championship. I mean you look at the seasons before the season you have all these goals but you know it's a process and so obviously we're very happy that we get to get to play it at home with the home fans but now I'll just go in there with the mentality of not not coming up short. We played the titans or a great football team. And we know this will be a great challenge. So we're excited to get in there and prepare ourselves employer basketball a chance to actually put your starting to but knowing how the domino's fill to where you all got first round by amount hoped talk about the titans knocking off the Ravens. How much pressure do you believe could be on this team? Taxi get over the Hump to get to Miami I yeah I don't think it was anywhere any other scenario. I mean being a Nancy James Game. We're GONNA put the pressure on ourselves to find a way to win it when you fall that just that close that short last year the the the next step is to get to the Super Bowl and so we understood that going into the season. But we know it's a long season we know it's a process. We know that day by day we have to get better and I think that's what this team is. Great at is is just getting better every single day going out and find to the in every single opportunity we get assigned was yeah. I mean obviously who didn't want to be in that in that spot the biggest thing that I I think I was preaching to the team was. Let's go do something special Let's go do something special. Everybody's already counting us out. Let's just go play by play and just put our best effort out. THEY'RE IN A. I mean obviously as a team we had everything had I go the right way but but the defense stepped up. Special teams stepped up offensively. We started making the plays you weren't making in Play by play. We just chipped away at that lead and then got the half and came up second. Haven't kept you going to the role of Oregon. Yeah we knew we were killing ourselves. Big thing the first drive had messed up on the coverage. And they got a touchdown the defendant as offense. We had that third down through it to Kelso who caught everything except for that one pass and he made a play that he usually usually catches a thousand times. And then blocked punt touchdown. And then kind of just snowballed there and then we got twenty four zero and so we knew that we were still still still just kind of beating ourselves and that we need to go out there and just execute at a higher level as a team and we knew was gonna be a great challenge. That team that we're playing but we just went out there and just play by play. Just did what we're you're supposed to do not trying to do too much and we kind of chip into that lead differently. David field trying to hype up vans both behind one second five times visible difference maker. Having those fans ends that are loud and they're giving us that passion that momentum kind of that whole thing you fill that as as a team and so I wanted to make sure the fans were still in it making sure that they knew that we weren't going to give up the fight until the end and they did a great job of staying with us and and fighting with us until we found a way to get a win the punt return the pundit they faked. It's got an APP. We're kind of a moment and play with after you guys that really feel like turning point. Yeah for sure I mean obviously we had scored a touchdown and they okay. We got to stop and they went for the for the fake and shorts the heck of a player making a one on one tackle right there and getting them short and then we scored pretty quickly. I think it was two plays after that and so to kind on a chip into Elliott and make it a two possession game at that at that point we knew that we were in rain and as the momentum kept going we just kept going and scoring one. Play at a time Lots yeah I mean I think as the momentum got in our favor We we realized that we were still doing the same things. We're actually not a higher level and so we knew that going into this game is going to be a challenge that you're gonNA play man coverage and we had a lot of great place he's called and I thought guys made plays whenever there. Opportunity came in the game. We've gotten yeah not a lot. I would say that but I mean it's it was an amazing thing. We everything was working. The place calls were great. Everybody was getting open verse Man Coverage Coverage which we've been preaching all year long and Gaza making place. When you look at your career goal? Yeah sure I mean being twenty down twenty four zero grow in the NFL. You don't win a lot of those games and so we knew it was too early in the game. First quarter pretty much and there was a lot of game left and I thought the best thing was just seen everybody's attitude I mean. Everybody obviously wasn't wasn't happy. They knew that we were going to find a way to fight. And just fight until the end and I thought that was the biggest thing that you can see on our sideline was guys wanted. Another chance needs to get out there and play offense option offered or sometimes. I'm wondering on your once. You didn't need a big number again. No not necessarily I mean I think the biggest thing was we you guys Gaza Tyreek Hill. Travis Kelsey Sammy Walk Hartman. You know that you can score points. It's just about that flow with the game. I think I've been saying for the last five ten whatever game so it's been. It's you have to read how the game's going and obviously with how we started the game offenses offensive defensive and special teams. We knew that we had a score points and so that meant more scrambling around them. It more take taking more chances taking more shots and I thought guys made a lot of place impact and the biggest thing is just trust it trust in a game plan not trying to do too much like I said we had the same similar routes open earlier in the game. We just weren't executing and we weren't making the place and if that far that's me not reading it the right way. We're not trying to go. The tyreek knee got hit pretty hard there. When Chelsea was opened underneath or or that? Some of the jobs that we had earlier we just didn't execute at a high enough level. The coach did a good job at trust us. Trust in a game plan and keep calling it the way they talk about. You want up against the Shawn Watson. But they're not has one defense in the second half only giving up seven points after course and we'll be back twenty four. Yeah I'm out of the defense played good all day. I mean they hit the first touchdown with MS coverage and they had a punt the blocks score touchdown down. We had a drop dropped plant. And they got a short film score touchdown but it wasn't like the defense when like the defense was really given a lot of yard or a lot of a lot of points and they just did what they've you've been doing all year long and that's that's making plays in every opportunity came and and keeping the other team. Patrick I know. Of course you know you got a ton of fans in East Texas. What would you say to your fantasies textures? That are hoping to see you. Can't yeah yeah I mean I. I love sexism always loved these Texas and I love the support that they've showed me Everywhere I've been the I've got any great support and so I'm just saying this to stay with us for just one day at a time and try to find a way to get another win different waited. That's something that you could have got the reach prior the I mean you guys have yeah. I don't I don't know about the first meeting that we we had Coming off the ankle injury but I think these last few weeks I've been able to move around better and do more things to the training staff keeping keeping me on us and making me give me in there every single day and making sure that I'm taking care of myself even when I feel great and I think just had that steady steady time that I've taken that training room is prepared me for moments like these. There was one thing left now. He doesn't say the best. I think that Watch next game at home in your gold. You've seen him this entire season the way he's able to to really get better each and every week and that's just the dedication hard work that he puts in every single day and it's not necessarily training and working on the routes wherever's but mentally physically do whatever it is he's trying to be great every single day and I think you can see that as he's he's learned more the playbook and learn more and more as far as running routes and stuff like that He's getting bigger and bigger rolling. The offense wrong with them all the momentum and have him returning the and I'm getting down into their territory I mean they got us kind of going. And we've got a quick touchdown out of that and it kind of got momentum going in our favorite Pasha descend yourself not all the teams will come back from twenty for nothing. So you've grasped out whatever the gravity that situation. What is it about you? Doesn't he doesn't flinch situations. Yeah I don't think you you can. I mean I think anytime that that I'm in. This team is are on the football today on the football field. We're GONNA fight to the end. We don't care what the score is. We don't care for down twenty four for twenty. We're going to put our best effort every single play. I think that's just the mentality of this team. You're playing yeah I mean like I said they're great football team. I think the biggest thing with them as they believe. And they're going to fight until the end and just just like we are and You've seen them all season long when they it went through adversity they. They've gotten back on the horse and fought and then even when we played them we were up a couple of scores late in the game and they fought to the end and ended up being this. So we understand that. It's GonNa be a great challenge. Orange a Lotta great football players over there but we're GONNA go in with the mindset of of just finding a way to win. Put our best effort forward. She's quarterback Patrick mahomes three hundred twenty one yards five touchdowns downs fifty three yards on the ground chiefs role and win fifty one to thirty one. What a comeback? The moment of the presser. It sounded like there was there was a fan then that left after the first quarter a viral video. He said he was leaving. He was bad lock and he hopes they turned it around. Mahomes asked hey. What do you have to say that Fanny's and Watch watch the game next game at home but according to ESPN stats and Info? Patrick Mahomes the first played throw five touchdown passes in a playoff game before his twenty fifth birthday in. NFL NFL history. The chiefs are now the first team in. NFL postseason history with a score on seven. Straight offensive drives a touchdown on that per Elias Sports. So the chiefs again. This is the record breaking offense right in two thousand three the record-breaking defense whoever the chiefs were playing it was the CRA defense teams. Were having a place reverend days against the defense. It's nice the chiefs offense. Keep putting up these numbers whether it's mahomes whether it's Kelsey knew and things that no tight end in the history of the NFL has done this with his team's doing let let this sink in Jay. This from Blair Kirk off of the Kansas City Star. The first time in franchise history the chiefs have one postseason games in consecutive years conspired them that consistency by these back to back. AFC tattle games in two straight years. This is a glimpse of what the next ten years will be in Kansas City. Let's go oh into the locker room now and hear from Wide Receiver McColl Hartman early on with the drops her there. What do you think was going on can catch the ball as we gotta kitchen? Baugh I saw was once we start catching started rolling a ball. I could feel that. The winds shifted the kickoff return. School rise the debt said got the defense starting school right back at fourteen and then on the twenty on the events that happened partly the moment of Gone Kelsey grew listen man. Kelsey is is obese. You know and I don't know why it's a discussion who the best tied in the lead is like that. God Plan on one leg got there. You know what I'm saying. I think he it has done the best. You can see in this game where he did. His love for the team is the termination. He's gotTa make guys out there that can do that And for him to give us motivation. They give us energy because he he he will have to be doing. You know he put his by Underlaw Every play and we were expecting for that. We Love them from that. So you know along south onto him for doing that and I'm so happy for for a guy playing like that. Of course how much of a weapon touch toss Komo up. He gets opened him a pat on the same page on long enough to know what each other one on each other in in the questioning of that three to the man who is ready for them to call new. We're going to face this game we've been talking about it and dance worsening man for nominated great play uh-huh right there at the sticks W. Big moment shift as well you know curve plays like that first moment today where you know but we start knowing that momentum outside at seven straight audiences straight you guys never gave up and just seeing yesterday. Stay would table today with a change. Teammate Justin coaching we call two catches for nineteen yards. But I think he had one of the major plays of the game with that fifty eight yard return being down twenty four nothing that all of a sudden changed the game going really did he keeps being that weapon ace in the hole that they can bring it up and we we sold on the punt returns. They went to Tyreek Hill. Enteric you'll have that fumble had been Moco Hardman job after all. He's starting in the pro bowl with that. I can't knock the cheeser putting hill back there because it's exactly ever done as well seriously is almost. That's exactly what I would have done. Put tyreek Hill back there to kind of change the complexity Gabe. Yes we'll call freak moment. Would that speed need. I mean He. He's kind of the days of the whole going forward. And here's the thing about it. If you're Tennessee energies. No no lead safe enough with his team. No Lena that would have a time of possession possession so important. It doesn't matter with the Kansas City chiefs and Pat Mahomes. This ought to serve as a warning to the NFL. You can get up on the Kansas City chiefs. But can you stay up on the Kansas City chiefs once they get that ball rolling. I mean seven. Straight touchdowns is unbelievable scoring an eighth straight drives. It shows you what this team could do. But Andy Reid Kipah keeping the foot with wrote you know he didn't regress. He didn't get that lead. Be Content with the League. He kept wanting to score. And I think that was important for amy. Read Chiefs Win Fifty one to thirty thirty one they had to their second straight. AFC title game when we come back here from the honey badger in tyreek hill. That's next on the Arrowhead Pride postgame show post post game show. The Arrowhead tried postgame show. Here's A. J. Pink back into the Arrowhead Pride Post game show piece. Sweeney leaning Gusty lichens behind the Glass J. Bingley the chiefs win fifty one to thirty one at Arrowhead Stadium after being down twenty four points. They scored forty one answered unanswered en route to the victory. Just an incredible win for your and city chiefs would give a special shout out to Eric Fisher Even Stone Cold Steve Austin tweets. Your that picture of her Fisher at the two beer cans. That's right smashing them. Don't know how much beer he actually got. But you know but that was great. It was a great celebration but shoutout Eric Fisher and what was a beautiful moment there. But the Stone Cold Steve Austin smack the beer cans together and Chug. Let's go so we got another hour or so here on the Arrowhead Pride Post game and then cody and gold will have extended post game with US starting at around seven thirty so keep locked in here on six ten sports radio for that right now. WE'RE GONNA go back inside the locker room and hear what the honey badger tired. Matthew had to say after the big win they got a good thing going over there. Obviously the most part you know they're young team a lot of growth I thought they played well I thought I thought I just thought we would have better team day obviously We wanted the more you know. So that's probably the best weapon put that. Can you talk about the feelings on this defensive unit. I mean you didn't give up. Those points came from special social changes. That you guys when you guys went back out. You know This playoff ball. I think the only thing that really matters The final score. No coast bags. Put us in that mindset all week long so you know. Don't dwell on the bad players don't even blown. I'm good please. Just go to the next player. I thought we did that. Nobody knows who's GONNA fight. Thanks field goal number. Thirty nine thousand space has been talked about big big time please by Dan No damage some big place votes today. like I said You know the more. Dan's you can have on your team. God that played both ways and you know they they play them. All two hundred plays every game. You know all four special teams then go out on defense and really please bald it takes a great professional takes on this. I'm glad on our team and He makes my job a lot easier onto the championship. Meet for you means everything Obviously we still got work to do. We got a big Tom. Palmer coming in one of those teams. You can't take lightly Big Time running back defense. I think we got outplayed. Our defense to win this game. It's chiefs safety tired. Matthew talking talking about how lucky the chiefs are to have Dan Sorenson. That was a huge play in the game that really helped shift the momentum talking about the the fake punt to try to go forward with four yards to go Dan Sorenson Sorenson the open field making that huge tax credits towards for kind of understand what's going on back there with the Texans kept switching sides going from one side to the other side for picking it up the in sorts and led. The chiefs will tackles with nine tackles on the day but yeah dirty. Dan Step up once again for this team. Canada under Sungai with the Kansas City chiefs but seems to always be either and again what was going to be the loss with thornhill. We're in the safety. Position is a position. That's got some depth with the Kansas City chiefs. There's depth that that safety position saw today. That's right In this game we've been talking a lot about Travis Kelsey the ten catches for one hundred and thirty four yards tyreek Hill a little bit quieter today. Just three catches for forty-one but he opens things up for this team will fuller does for the Houston. Texans tyreek Hill after the game as quarterback ED panic. Because we're confident right but like doing something something different. I mean which the game the same way I mean it is a playoff speed is a little bit different pro choice in science after I got hit today. Like how it Paul Hardman. Yeah we need it was gonNA come later. WHO's there was? This was just like a ticking time bomb so McCoy he said off and everything else that Roland go straight points before the game Matignon when not in real life Louis County with your team speed. You guys could do something like that. Oh yeah I mean I feel like we feel like as often that Every time that you step out on the field we're supposed to court uh-huh no matter. The situation he was supposed to be a score one. Play Fifteen Taipa. It doesn't matter what we've got seeing you guys in the first quarter pretty animated talk about. What do you mean what There we get down around forty four shorted on TV. WHO's running up and down shouting yelling Pat Manpower Bro? All whole waffle house Houston deficits especially. Yeah so I mean like I said I mean you wouldn't have the team that will never penny always causing the pressure. I mean even now twenty point zero a lot of drops my muffed punt. You know what I'm saying. So we wouldn't have a panic because I feel like if you panic things will get worse so so much of the conversation was trying to ask. How much of the discussion on the sideline was just? You will sir I mean this knicks played. I feel like Just takes place but it got to a point. Where like I mean? We're not nick's place you know knows Anka's a quarter quarter was moving. Time's moving fast. So guys just like man we gotta start. Making plays homes is talented and you hear tyreek hill talking about it but one of the bigger things today was being on the sidelines and saying stuff to guys is a and making sure that they didn't panic. tyreek hill there. There was no panic. And that's why the chiefs for able to pull off this comeback and they've always looked at mahomes the leader. It's been this way all year but this year last year when he's MVP. We already get the respect of your teammates. But I'm telling you you know what he was in Denver laying on that field and dislocated his knee and waved off court standing there giving his team high. I five when they were done with the game coming in locker room instead of being often some training room or at a hospital whatever that goes a long way it his composure. Not panicking the five touchdown right. What across the team even your head coach Andy Reid talking about keeping this team com? 'cause there was probably some panic setting in with some of the players. Like oh my look the score. How are we gonNA come back now? But but homes had that ability in this part of being a quarterback it's part of that if factor when you have a guy like that that can lead a team back not to mention. I'd I'd like to shout out of the waffle house hundred percent right. It's always open. Beat one thing I noted in this game was the silence really when when the the cheese were down twenty before an expected and Brooks NFL DOT COM tweeted out. When you have that type of game the crowd starts to feel it and that being home and seeing that deficit that can really we? You know could affect team where they start thinking about. Oh man it's it's really grim right now. 'cause you watch football and see rain down by twenty four. They don't come back exactly me. And for what it's worth the chief score that touchdown and then all of a sudden you can hear the Arrowhead stadium crowd. You know once they were able to finally get on the board. The chiefs crowd was back and that she said the fireworks piece. Yes and so again. I I credit mahomes with that Patrick Mahomes by the way is our. AP Player of the game. We didn't give it to him a lot this year. He definitely earned it today. Yeah fifty three yards rushing led the chiefs in Russia's well the cheuse ended up at one eighteen on the ground dare Williams or she'd really David Williams comes into forty seven yards but holmes was fifty three yards and again those those yards created by the separation that he recreates with his play calling spread their defense out and Patten homes with the open running lanes running really started the chargers game. You saw him run for fifty nine yards in this in that game six yards different in this game between the chargers game where we set a career high for rushing the football but his composure. His calmness there's no other. MVP THAN PAT mahomes. The offense explosion was fun to watch but on the other side side of the football. We've been talking a lot about Frank Clark. Our friend. B K The producer of the drive from two to six and weekdays here on sports radio. This was a tweet from him. Twenty five minutes ago. You'RE GONNA I wanNA tune into six tenths sports. KC FOR THE POST game show. Frank Clark just had an all time. Great postgame pressure. Well does he. Just let me know. The sound is ready. Here is Frank Clark doc in the chiefs Locker Room Down Twenty four to nothing win this game guys got ta just another name. I mean you know you face versus the playoffs expecting every teams. They'll give you the Houston they came out with the first fifteen you know everything's per scripted. And they had a hell of a push. I'm twenty one zero like I said. But thank God we got Padma home so then today known got. MVP quarterback back there. It ain't it. Ain't too much pressure on you. So offense job stepped it up in defense we hold it down here. Doing Yeah Awesome. is our goal are going to make it. They're going to win at all but I'm just one game by the time you not feel good to go ahead and bring on that show you know it's kind of you know especially for In the fifth. Yeah you know on our on our Franklin you got traded here. You had dreams and aspirations of being able to do this because this was a super bowl winning team last year. What does it mean actually? No you're going to let me know. GotTa get there just wanting this game like I said you got the data time you'll want to get too far ahead of the game you you know when you get to go too far ahead of yourself. That's going away as you're seeing out there you know it was confusing. You see on drop passes in the beginning mistake. What you're saying blown assignments and we got the result order that and and honestly made a car for a game that we should have been working hard now whereas you seem to put fifty one points and three quarters and we need to put fifty one point three quarters you know that is the type of team we have and You know we didn't vote under pressure. You know People boot I appreciate it. They didn't boot you know we'll be back next week so we want to hear the noise and just keep on fighting. Yeah no I love the fighting this team like I said no other place. I'd rather be you know. I don't regret nothing. It's not a place I'd rather be with With these guys chiefs kingman place in this game doesn't doesn't stay assignment sound illegal. How big a plane back from what you WANNA best better team players in the world and he has been Most his career. And that's I mean what else do you spend from. I don't expect greatness from especially as far as that. He takes full accountability for his actions and he doesn't get enough credit as you say. He stepped up. Big Wasn't just play with a few places. Thought they game where he made. Some great tackles You know forcing them to Sentiments a tough for downs and stuff like that and another team. We've got a lot of guys that went down and a lot of guys that you know. Yeah Mike Pronoun there in the inside During not put some more you put some pressure on him. But Hey guys I just stepping up man From my rookie. You know you got calling. He stepped up on. You know hats off to the garden inside. And that's the difference. Can you talk about getting pressure on watching. You guys had the impression on me last time they were here. They beat us Just mack face you know simple simple put and that's the one thing I remember the day you talk talking to the wrong guy talking to the wrong team they talk all that stuff and it come iron embarrass them so we send them home early. Make sure they got short season and enjoy the off season. Like when you start to come down Starting to feel normal. Oh it's not the first time in life. I'm sure none of it's been down. You're not in the day you're GonNa go down you know On the football field you can just quit because you down at the end today. You can't just give up. There's too much investment to the teams too much invested into our lives for us to get up. It's too many relying on this. So just giving up. That's not in our nature. You know you see a quarterback like I said it started the leader you know when when he comes roughing just keeping a real. You come out rough you know you feel the pressure. Most one guy like I said before Matt thank God we got home because if we didn't I'm not shorter results would be the same trick. You mentioned talking smack with this from last game were man. y'All y'all y'all in the medium macos high talking about. Ah You're talking about. We can't stop them and stuff man at the end of the day are going to stop the beat the tape and that's what we did. We'd be detained. We stopped him. He didn't do And at the end of the day. We're just keeping everything in house always good on. Herbie T. O.. P. Of the Kansas City Star for asking the question Frank Clark basically say Carlos Carlos Hyde Chirpin a little bit new blank. They took care of him. I loved Frank Clark with little smacker at their listen to what he said man. He's talking about his quarterback it. It's a good thing. We had mahomes that he talks about this guy and he he the honey badger kind of the PAT mahomes. On this defense. Nobody could have homes. But that's as close as you get on the defensive side of the ball again new scheme new head coach eight new faces. Unique in Clarkson's dog. We talked about training camp. If he wasn't healthy in once he became healthy. 'cause he talked that talk and he's walking that walk. We thought big things with Frank Clark. He loves loves to talk. And he's backing it up. But he was relentless today I mean relentless getting to John Watson talked about it earlier man when we're seeing multiple times and still having the energy to get up. Continue need to Chase Watson. WHO's a really tough guy to play and is able to do so three times three sacks for Frank Clark and they comes on a day where you didn't have Chris Jones? That's the biggest part of it for Frank Lock because you needed a big game for them. This is why you traded form. This is why you paid them all that money and he delivered. If this is exactly what you get Frank Clark. Even dogs mainly leded attitude. It's thing does defense is missing. Is The guy to talk some junk. And then back it up and I feel they got that way with frank and he backs it up. He's a relentless guy that I think the coaches and players definitely the reason he starting in the proble. I don't think he's a household name with fans yet but those that play against him respect his abilities polities it. He showed that the day by number. Quick we'll get back to calls in just a little bit cost nine one three five seven six seven six ten if you want to get your thoughts on the air here on sixteen in Sports Radio. Let's go back inside the locker room and hear from wide receiver. Sammy Watkins. I mean that's one of the best those DMZ everywhere. The last semigloss even Retinas League. He's still after he's getting kind of stale feel more because we rolling on the ground plan. We've got a couple of guys. Tell Tony Stay positive on you know. We've seen games like this before we've seen Seattle and I must say we got in one spot in who it is who scores and PAT was leading team on him. I brung gray energy Kept US up the first down main appetite. We just stayed off. I had to call a guy like mahomes out. Twenty four nothing. You still have the talent back. That kind of what you guys kept saying Yeah you can look in his eyes so sometimes looking guys you're shutting out or not and now he's giving us stay. Stay stay driving the car you the guy that you can't stop. He's one of the best players. He's continued to get better. You know we don't get to build around them say okay. So can jose encouragements great. Composure got got coaches team staff this organization we never ever ever been in the situation. We fought out of my reading stat and everybody that coach Iran every day on mine. Couple the time man. This is over. You see coach reading other Guy Man. One time watch going in we score at one time. I say fight Hoagie Sammy. Watkins had the one carried today for fourteen yards. He had two catches for seventy six yards. Hasn't been I think the greatest year for Sammy and that one big game early for as much money as you're you're paying him you'd like to see a little bit more production but he was effective for the chiefs today and if there's one way to kind of get over what was a I would say less productive regular season. It's to be there for this team in the playoffs. Because if you have some good playoff moments no one ten years from now twenty years from now is GonNa Remember. Your regular season isn't so good on Sammy. Watkins for being productive today. Almost ninety yards from scrimmage. ooh that run with the past what you want but is blocking two. When he's not getting in football I I'm telling you Sammy? Watkins Blocking listen is there were sixteen billion dollars now but his blocking has been outstanding. When when when it's the running game or two different different directions Sammy? Watkins doesn't mind put his helmet in there. And that's big. Just six hundred seventy three yards for him in the regular season this year but again like I said if if he has a good playoffs no one is really going to care. Much about that Damian Williams who had a nice game three touchdowns for the second playoff game in a row he had three touchdowns in the AFC title game game last year. Here was Damian in locker I can feel the energy switch you know. He did a great job of keeping that bottle in just finished. It's not I've been on this. You know since last year camp this year they get new guys coming in and out but but you know just just a heart and everybody has to see in and it makes you know I want to give your give your heart give it up turn go on. What was the kind of message you guys tell each other atms first quarter magic? Stay stay locked in in her. Take care of the little things. Just be smart finished again. That's the most important you have that just exploded and I felt great. You know just be able to go out there Eh. For for twelve carries for forty seven yards two touchdowns on the ground for Damian Williams yell two catches for twenty one yards and a touchdown through the year Jay. Hey never been a big Damian Williams guy you coming around on Damian you know if you keep doing this season honestly think the regular season is the guy you trust. Fifteen fifteen twenty twenty-five carries every there for a while. He had two touchdowns on the board before even rained for ten yards but as able the salt the game kind of away Towards the in there with the Kansas the in city chiefs against that Texans defense. When I think the Texans were kind of kicked out of the game they found their answer for twenty twenty-five Carry Guy? I don't think so and Darwin Arlen Thompson is still in that mix he also had that beautiful special teams play where the balls just landed in his hands. Ben Neiman knocking it out. He didn't know what to do with it. Even sit if he had this bulkhead run the ball. Like that's what you're paid to do Darwin Thompson. It's to run some story lines out of the Texans Locker. De'andre Hopkins was playing with a rib injury throughout this game and still was productive for them. re I tried to find the exact injury here but he ended up having nine catches for one hundred hundred eighteen yards. He's one of the best receivers in the league. And he's kind of stuck with Bill O'Brien. I liked the Watson Hopkins combination but I think Bill Bill O'Brien's GonNa hold them back. I mean to talented team. He Carlos Hyde thousand yards rushing this year they rain for one hundred. Forty one yards but they're so inconsistent. It's kind of been the theme of the Texans this week when you're talking to people like John McCain that covers the the Texans from the Houston Chronicle talking about the tech. They they stand up beat the Patriots at home only to have thirty eight points. Drop Donna on a by drew lock in the Denver Broncos the following week. They've just never kept the consistency in really. The whole season was summed up in this game getting a twenty four to nothing point. Lead in losing by twenty. This game sums up the Texans season. I very quickly just got the injury. It's a rib issue and so that really hurts when you're breathing and you're having you're having trouble breathing the thing with with ribs and he's still able to put up nine catches and eighteen yards. He was the most productive texted in this football game. But as Frank Clark said they have the early off season now and Clark cool. We'll see them next year and he just tweeted for Clark. Enjoy your vacation to the postcard or whatever would drive. That's where you can find me in the mob. It's a it's a a big fifty one to thirty one win from Arrowhead Stadium when we come back and it's time for Arrowhead. Pride sounds of the game. You're listening to the Arrowhead Pride postgame. Show the post game show. That's how fast they can do it. The big return at two plays later they find the end zone for the first time today. Stacking three receivers to the rights touchdown Chelsea. Ah Rod Houston's worst in the League on stopping third-down it's third and Goal Kansas City. The we talked in this song feels the pressure and then fires back store. Kintu Kelsey does the match up one on one. He's going to continue to make these guys. They're stop Kelsey on the right side now moves to the left. Here's my home looking for a moment. He may pass along. Just tell you this is going to be close to stare at this. I kill see well this is GonNa be close. You're the right to play first off. It's like no look pass basketball Larry Bird all of a sudden tip pass over here perfect victim six for six season. What is going on around? It's just unbelievable. Design Eighty cents the game courtesy of CBS chiefs. Just come back from twenty four points down and put up fifty one starting in the second quarter. I'm seeing some techs. Come through on the text line any report on when tickets become available actually just got the email a limited quantity of AFC title. Tickets will go on sale to the public at noon on Monday. January thirteenth fans can purchase tickets online at chiefs DOT com. I guess if you're a season ticket member at nine. AM So there. You Go Monday in also tomorrow. Thirty fiscal in the morning Tabouli. He beat the drum today. He was on the drum deck. He'll be on in the morning. That'll be interesting. There's played bells Mr Steele. Your girlfriend and chiefs daredevil tweets out this is the not put up on the scoreboard for chiefs fans chice fans. We're sorry to report. But duty or support in chiefs continually finding the end zone. We've run out of touchdown fireworks expellees direct over your complaints to your nearest fiends. First Booth Bloomberg shock we saw excellent at. That's amazing cheese out of fireworks. These scored two d the much first of all. That's amazing second of all chiefs production. You should have fireworks for ten touchdowns or you you know. Look at my friends. I have some friends in cheese production. Now they know to have to have touchdowns for more touchdowns I mean you should have probably seventy five points worth Touchdown fireworks or so. You think you've been kept some because the offense. Dan scored what they did last year. You think the fireworks hasn't been a problem right right. Well it's interesting again. You want to get involved. We probably have time for a few more calls. Nine one three five seven six seven six ten text line six nine three zero six. What do you think what are your impressions of how the chiefs matchup with the Tennessee? Titans because again. What we you want to celebrate this when this was an amazing game but the end all be all is getting to the Super Bowl winning the super bowl and to do that that she could have to beat the titans at home next week? Although join fear you'd have with the titans who have beat the chiefs. Forgery Games is the fact if they get this lead. I don't know if the titans would blow it because they can run the football better than the Houston. Taxes are a physical football team. The Hill it becomes Terry Bradshaw. He joins bread. Shows the only two quarterbacks to throw a touchdown in less than a hundred yards and yet still win back to back playoff games. So the don't ask Tammy Hill to do a much I is. He beat the chiefs on that nine yard scramble to get their first down in Tennessee. But Derrick Henry run the football. That's a team that wants to control the clock that if they get up twenty four. They're going to try the milk the clock down just like they did on the Ravens last night. But if the chiefs get off to an early lead like I expect them to do against Tennessee. Titans you take that game away from him forced Hanan lose nice year right but still. It's right Danielle. So the battle of former Big Twelve quarterbacks is people said big twelve quarterbacks couldn't win in the postseason but homes and Tannehill proven him wrong. Don't on the text line. Tannehill play to the big twelve before the aggies switched to the SEC. Or their you save it. I WanNa say this if the chiefs chiefs continue this trend of this offense looking like it did today starting in the second quarter. You're right I think they should have no problem with Tennessee. Now if if Tennessee can keep it a game there and say build a lead like Tennessee's able to build a twenty four point lead like we saw today that's going to be a lot tougher to come back. Because jared jared five become more and more difficult not to think about Derrick Henry and the way he's playing right now you could know dare Kennedy's running the football and he's still may pick up five yards. It's GONNA keep in mind back in highschool dear catering once had fifty carries in the game dude as a workhorse. got a caller Jeffrey. What did you think of the game? Yeah Oh my God that was a roller coaster to say the least. I was about done with that first. Quarter but you can never ever doubt my homes because he will always find a way to put us back in the game. We should have not doubted him just because of what he did last year against the Patriots. So yeah as long as we played to. Our potential doesn't matter the Patriot turnout patriots. Excuse me done the titans. Try to run MOM's okay percentage. So we're going this year all the way they how about those patriots because the Patriots Julie. That'll be hopping on the hood of Mercedes late at night. So the mazing with the Patriots will do once. They're not playing I just can't believe where we've come from with this year. It's just unbelievable believable. When we were up at training camp you like two to one hundred degree weather? I know your your back sweat up there and I'm trying to stay away. It's really gross. And we're thinking about this season we will get to had come down. We're GONNA we think it's going to come down to the chiefs and the Patriots Right. We always thought that for the titans to just be in this football game. It's almost with a sneak into the postseason. It's bazaar you know it. It just doesn't seem like real little bit. Made that quarterback switch against the broncos and they lost sixteen nothing nothing to the Denver. broncos didn't even score against Denver Pete they make that switch from Marietta Tannahill just a different football team then sneak their way into the playoffs but a confident team not only that but a team playing smart just like the all the penalties they created the to really waste the time so brady and fifteen seconds at the end of the game it was ability and move that they use but Mike variable the former player of the Patriots aid the chiefs. It's another shot at them. If you're going to be in the final four teams of this thing you saw yesterday straight little bit with the forty niners to you could have some swag too. You're entering the area where all of these teams are playing. Well at the right time I think able has brought that to the Tennessee. Titans I'm I'm looking at the stats from this. Titans Ravens game last night. Dirk Henry had thirty rushes for one hundred ninety five yards tannehill seven of fourteen for eight two touchdowns so what a weird offense that their they don't ask him the do much. It has confidence but you have to wonder how much they have in the tank. They exert it almost everything to beat the Patriots. Then they go and they have to exert everything to beat the Baltimore Ravens. Their Blade Two playoff games physical games against New England Baltimore. How much do they have left them tank coming to Kansas City city? I know that we're going to talk to spell on Thursday. And he's going to be saying the chiefs are going to have to bring multiple people. Bring this guy down. I think that's the obvious. And that she'll it'll be up to the task. You hear the way Frank Clark talking right now. I think the chiefs are GONNA have confidence against Derrick Henry. I don't think they're gonNA let a loss to the titans happen again. Just like in the regular season back out to the phones owns Jason. What did you think of today's game? Oh Man at about gave me and my dad a massive coronary episode there in the first quarter it was one of those games. You kind of take some deep breaths and believe in Patrick Mahomes God that was totally believing in Patrick. mahomes receiving core kind of scared me with those passes S.'s. But Oh man. They went electric after the second quarter. Yeah you're right about that. Good Call Jason. I was looking at this game. Aim at the beginning. I didn't like the Kelsey drop to get into that but some of the struggles today from Damarcus Robinson really just taken his eye off the football or something because he hasn't been a guy in the past to again the ease. More of an occasional occasional receiver for Patrick Mahomes but even in the past. You don't remember him necessarily having a Lotta drops. He was having a little bit of a Hippie Day himself. The focused problem all right. The markets are always looking downfield. Maybe to make some kind of contract if the kids there you go contract year Damarcus. This is your national television. There's plenty of the ball Tom to your boy Chris Calmly. This is where you can make a little bit of change. They're just not a great day for them. And hopefully the chief Chris Jones after one more week of rest I in the AFC title game right so Jones reentering. The lineup is going to be huge. I think you rest him travis. Kelsey had a little bit of a Hammy issue. I think you give him all the rest. He needs sometimes times. When these guys are limited during the week I mean we are entering what the eighteenth nineteenth week of football at this point to me? Okay if they need to be limited they can be limited. You WanNa talk about limited toward the end of his career Tombaugh Lee. WHO's GonNa be on festival in the morning tomorrow? He got a couple of veteran type days. It had give Kelsey some time off this week to. He saw what happens. What he's limited in practice? Go up there and have tim catch game. Four hundred thirty four yards three touchdowns. Just make sure you don't know Y- get you a quick. I don't know if you guys saw it. Yes obviously bill. Cowher got his announcement they just gave it to Jimmy Johnson. Of course tears in his eyes they did the same way they did it with bill cowart introduction to the pro football hall of fame And then they did a really cool shot. 'cause Troy Aikman it's calling that packers Akers game against the seahawks. And then they cut to Troy Aikman and he looks down. His eyes are watery. So Bill cowher yesterday Jimmy Johnson today if you have your TV on Fox you obviously can see his face. But you know good omen for These coaches hall of fame. There's one other Guy Wade risk right next one special moment right there that that is pretty cool. Right there The chiefs win the titans win. San Fran one yesterday right now. Green Bay is up. Twenty one three on the seahawks so we are looking looking at his. I mean you can't cannot Russell Wilson. He'd kill double check. Baby he could come back in that game but yes you are looking at potentially a mahomes Rogers Super Bowl if they could if they win their game. I know I don't want to jinx anything necklaced form that would make for an interesting match up all right. Well we are fifteen eight minutes away from the extended post game with codeine gold but coming up next here in the Arrowhead Pride postgame show. We will have our final verdict of the night. SAY WITH US post game show back to the Arrowhead tried post game show. Here's Pete Sweeney and J Pink Lee. Welcome back in the Arrowhead Pride postgame show as your chiefs or heading to their second straight. AFC title game after the Big Fifty one to thirty one victory over the Houston Texans down to the final four teams. We think it's going to be the chiefs. The titans the forty niners and the Green Bay packers just one win away from bringing Lamar Hunt Trophy back to Kansas City. It's close Pete. Eighty read big his seventh seventh trip to he title game five the NFC two in the AFC back to back playoff wins for the Kansas City chiefs in backpack years. Excuse me when you think about this football team right now. Patrick mahomes out of it as we always do. When these type hypothetical situations who do you think is more most important for winning this game against against the titans next week? Mom's I just said without without Mahone take mahomes out out of their homes out of pain you can't take mahomes out of it he just told you you could Kelsey killed there. You Go Travis Kelsey to continue. What he's doing is be that horse? The consistent horse could three touchdowns in for one thirty four be be that guy eaten up the titans of the middle. I like the Kelsey choice. I'm going to pivot and go with the team. MVP for this year. And that of course is tired. Matthew and I think Matthew continues handling his side of the football that'll be big for the chiefs. I called Matthew M. V. P. of this team we it could hear from MVP panel. Talk to the media after the Game Matt Crepe game no but You know going out when my brother and his interest. ESPN loan honest says characteristics. Everybody has the same on the same. Everybody wants to win everybody. You know. From Sunday to Sunday we'll go to the game and makes it easy what I mean. What are you down twenty four nothing? It's early and everything goes through your mind. That kind of situation all we did was has come together on the sideline couple of guys from the talk. And we're ready to get to it. Nobody was down. Everybody was reading. Plus I'M GONNA keep it between us but I just know that. Everybody got together after that responding with Chris Jones have pretty good man. You know Christmas. They're on the sideline out there. I felt like we held up pretty good too that they're playing. That do you remember the momentum seemed to turn in your guys they think back to I've been coming on getting a first third with a where the momentum stop fake Frank Clark gotTa Oh you gotTa say right after the clam eight on that third second was that right before they take the field gone forth shortage other stocking up. What what does that do for you to have that belief to know that even if things off to such a mess to be honest we do it enough times that you know he can get you back on to be honest with you? Does everybody to stay together. Keep playing you know nobody was down you know and I believe on offense and belief in the defense you know. It goes hand-in-hand. We're all we're all congratulating each other all down when we need to come together to play here again. The next next big. I was big again in my life. Today we're going to be ready and prepared the fake funded. They tried sources tackle. Just how big egg with that momentum play. I mean those crazy I mean these gangs margin for error small without a Mike. A lot of people have credit for some the defensive improvement against Iran. Next week you guys Derrick Henry coming in here just kind of a task force. I'm a definitely leading rusher in the NFL this year. But you've been spags D. Line around the data that they were more prepared for that channels. Now what have you seen from him over the last couple of weeks. We've all seen it watching from the side no uh-huh pretty much been focused. Since we're GONNA play at the task at hand but I'll be lying game last night and he's just running hard but it's still the same scheme and everything like that. We've got play sound. Technique won't be it actually didn't play in the chiefs game against the titans during the season and this was the ones that active. Yes they a wanted. Some more pass rushing of from forget who was but the panella ended up ended up owing Joey. That's was Joey Ivy's pass rush they felt like would be more effective and the titans end up winning that game. And there were some chiefs fans with their hands. up in arms wondering why would you sit this Guy Mike Pinot who's done and he's done a great job just another undersung guy that gets fifty twenty stamps again. You heard him talking about their country. That's a big body of panel though. I mean you know in all seriousness. You're going to need that next week. Against Hurricane. Derrick Henry hundred ninety five yards rushing thirty carries a at one hundred eighty. Something the game before that the guys just on a run uh-huh and he's been doing things that you've never seen in the NFL. We'll just how unstoppable he's been has been something to watch but like to me. Yeah okay. State played the Navy team. They ended up losing. Just a weird type of offense that is different than the rest of the other teams in the NCW. Like that's I mean right now is a Houston is the tendency titans triple option. Run the ball where it's almost like old nineteen fifty sixty seventy s football where you're just running time on and and it's that smashmouth you don't see many teams like that in the NFL anymore. No I mean the the zigging when everybody else zagging again the top four passers in the NFL by yardage not the policies. But she's the only team in the top five is a team that it's in the up there with with fifth and passing in the NFL. This has become. It's more of a running post-season more running postseason than the we've seen so formed to number one seeds one of them's gone the ravens because they were beaten by running team in the titans in San Francisco the number two rushing team in the NFL chiefs. Get the big win today right now. It's time for Jay is final verdicts chiefs. Were were down. Twenty four points in this game storm back. Forty one points unanswered eventually win fifty one to thirty one time now for the final verdict Jay in this game against the Texas. What did you learn about the chiefs? I think we all learn. You just never had homes out. I mean this guy has never lost by more than one scorn a game. How can you not like? We've all talked about having homes yards. He throws four touchdowns but just coming back. What he's done this year just that dislocated kneecap in Denver Ver? He wanted to keep playing. He was right there waving off court walking himself. There do high-fives teammates coming in the teammates. Terry kill that's our quarterback Frank Clark. That's our quarterback. We hit the right guide. Home in for Pavel homes to Kenneth. Calm everybody down. Walk up and down the offensive Lineman keep them in this game. It took co leader like that to calm this down to overcome that deficit that they had all know. Pat Mahomes is is remarkable when he stolen the football but that leadership. WHOA Shen is so big for Patrick? Mahomes yeah you got this Kansas City chiefs team and I talked about it a little bit in the pre game. He didn't catch the. The era had pride tailgate the chiefs. For years. In the Alex era you would need to play a precise perfect perfect game mistake free to have a chance to beat what would be the New England. Patriots what would be the Indianapolis Colts. What would be the Denver Broncos because those teams with those quarterbacks were built so well that in order to beat them you had to lay your best possible game now? Oh you flip the switch. You are that T-. Kansas City chiefs are a complete football team. They have you found this out now in the last twenty four hours be without a doubt best young quarterback in the NFL. And when you bring the Houston Texans in here. And they're making mistakes where they can get up twenty four points and then bill. O'Brien doesn't have a play for fourth and one that he likes. That is incredible. Then he makes the mistake of going for it on a fake punt to regain the momentum and that fails miserably. What does that do that? Opens the door for the Kansas City chiefs. Who are the Patriots of yesteryear who are the broncos of yesteryear? You ever see that show breaking bad We're we're Walter White. Says I am the one who knocks the chiefs are the team who knocks and if this offense is playing like it was last year in two thousand eighteen if they can tap back into it and score touchdowns seven Evans Straight drives. There's not a team left. I don't care if it's the seahawks the packers the forty niners titans that is going to be able to beat your Kansas City chiefs. They're playing their best football now. Now on offense at exactly the right time and that is my final verdict. This is a team. That's real. This is the team that probably is going. Go to Miami to play in the Super Bowl. It all starts next week. Two Oh five chiefs entites dirty where it will produce the separation five. Am That's right tomorrow tomorrow. Dick Price talking about this game in game when I go home tonight that outside come back to work tomorrow like that outside there you go. Why do you need Sun? You don't need son I don't but I mean some people would see me and they'd be like Oh my God it's the living version of Casper because I'm just like that. Why we're we'll that's like Alaska Alaska? There's not a lot of so I'd be okay to live in the last half the year. The great breaking bad enough thank you. It was actually a lot of Sun at different times. Because if you truly don't know who Patrick Mahomes is. I suggest you tread lightly. What is your final verdict and we have a few minutes here? Yeah Okay So. On outta balance on Saturdays I think by final verdict has been or was going to be. We're seeing the clips in the audio of what the cheese there were the royals against Houston in two thousand fourteen or Miss Dacas is quoted as saying. I'm just not bleeping ready to go home yet. I think that was Kinda cool. But my final verdict. Tis The last time this chiefs team put a fifty one points. They lost this chiefs team. Put Up Fifty one point today. They won right now. The numbers are skewed towards the game because of the opposing offense in the fourth quarter. They were down by so much but this team just I mean you get a sense. And this isn't a homer. Take you just get the sense that this team just wants it. You can kind of feel it with attention of Andy Reid. You hear the the postgame body that we had today and everything which is like you know I sat back and watched pat. Just do his thing again like we saw sitting in that studio today you saw how like characteristic. He was on the silent. You don't ever see pat like that and today you can tell like it's real and that's what it was today. I think what jumped out to me on on this Sunday was the fact that once they turned it on in the second quarter. There wasn't a damn thing. The Texans could do seven straight touchdown. They couldn't do anything they could do. These Gordon Drugs. You couldn't do anything. And that's the incredible part and it's crazy because you have the city the way you don't have a quarterback of your own for thirty years and over the last twenty four hours like I'm saying like Lamar Jackson was great. This year couldn't win in the playoffs against the titans. We'll pet mahomes. The chiefs have become a headache every NFL GM and a scouting department. Trying to beat this guy. Travis teams looked at the Brady and Belichick. How are we going to beat this team? The chases Jason now become that focal point. How are we going to beat this team especially in the AFC west? I love it and you know what we're GONNA be right back here next week. AAC On the post game show this time next week. J Let this sink in here via the chiefs could be going to the Super Dry. It'll that Jay. At least he's honest. Put It on her. Now let's Chester. You're going to do and he goes nuts. Chester's that's very accurate. Alex Gold thinks this happens happens all the time late. He just walked to the studio his back the key city where he grow grew up and he thinks his apostolic Diet speaking to this. Here's here's your extended post game coming up right after us. With cody and gold. WanNa thank Craig. Stout WanNa thank Matt Lane. Ken Swanson for his efforts before. Does dusty lichens behind the glass or guys out at Arrowhead Brandon Kylie in the crew. Getting down today much appreciated your chiefs are headed to their second straight. AFC title game keep. It locked tin here Pete. Sweeney signing off Jay Bentley tonight.

Texans Get 2nd Win of Season, Astros Sued, College Football and Sign Stealing allegations, Next Texans Head Coach

"It got shot sauce homemade. Avail quarterback time french very this. Is the sean salisbury. Show on a celebration monday dammit. It's the sean salisbury. Show michael connor here with you. This morning josh see here as well. Sean has the day off as we are reacting to everything that went on in the sports world over the weekend including your houston texans yesterday. They've got to winds now dammit to six. It doesn't matter if it's only gets the same team that uh it's still windsor. It's too frigging wends. Am i gonna be that excited. Because there's not that really that many reasons to be that excited but you know what the texans go out there yesterday to take care of their business they make it a course at very texans like ending to a game where it's way interesting than it should be and i think everyone predicted that they'd have a lead and then get close blown pulled out. I mean only. The texans allow a guy named jake luton who's never played the nfl before to go out and carve them up. Twenty six of thirty eight for three zero four. Did throw pick a bad pick and a touchdown but he threw for over three hundred yards in his first game in the nfl and the guy was a six round pick. I mean that's very texans. Like their defense is atrocious. And yes yesterday was a win. I think i'm like most people and if you are not this way you can weigh in this morning. seven one. Two one two five seven ninety. The houston texans have made me check out emotionally for a while. Yeah i think it's the safest to not just be upset. Every right you watch but there's no emotion involved. It's just going through the motions kind of like they're doing at this point and you're at the crazy thing is sitting there watching the game yesterday. I'm saying you know there's eight more games this season. We're only halfway through this crap. That's it in this industry joe. Watson's put them number still having a nice season but there was nothing again twice that they put the jaguars. Now that has been like okay. Maybe they're going to turn the corner. There's not you know it's going to be coming this week as well. They're going to start again talking about. Oh we still have a playoff chance for only a few games back and they have an easy it. They're going to try and convince himself which i get. The players have to deal with as a fan. Don't start putting emotion back into this and it's a very very slim chance that they even get close to getting straight up. Ask you if you're one of these people that actually believes that they're going to make the playoffs serious 'cause morning. I'm not going to belittle you or make fun of you or call you names or anything. I want to hear your reason. Why so when three two one two five seven on d actually think. This is a football team that suddenly going to turn things around and play their way back into playoff contention because they've beaten the jaguars twice this season and lost everybody else at some point. I do feel like they will get a win that they're not supposed to get. It's hard to go through a sixteen game season where a team does not get one of those wins. I can guarantee a go through most teams in the league outside of well obviously the jets and find a win that you didn't think are supposed to have but the texans don't have that yet and at this moment to get to the play offs. What are we supposed to get the word on when this is going to happen. If it's going to be eight or seventeen i've no clue i. It feels like it should have been nari. Decided like in the middle of the superstar point for most teams or we're at the midway point and a few teams are passed the midway point and we don't have a clue if it's going to be seven or eight because if it's if it's eight i mean look three games out and the cleveland. Browns will cleveland brown this thing but he had to call to and you still have two games against cults. They screw around us. The colts twice. You're talking about actual chance of making the post season so the browns are also getting back this week. It looks like so that hurts a little getting baker. Mayfield on the field that i'm unsure about. I know he went into protocol. Cova pro at least saturday and i believe it was. He didn't have it but he was around someone who had it. So there's no real telling. Their the colts aren't very good feared vision leader. I would say that's your shot at going. Nine there your doodoo. They're fighting for the walker. Nine seat right the titans winning yesterday the time is settled. All right this is their division right in the titans reminds you that they're the big dog in the division. We're not going to actually. We're not talking ourselves into the texans being contenders they are still just two wins ahead of the worst team in a league. Yeah they're still not very good and we can go. Watch the football game yesterday. And still note. This football team is not. There is no reason for me to have any thought in your mind that this team is suddenly going to turn things around and be more than five win football team this year period. They've played that what they gave up yards like crazy to a bad football team. Two hundred or exceed me. Three hundred four yards passing. We've taught mentioned that rushing yesterday. The jaguars only ran the ball. Twenty seven times for one hundred and fifteen yards. It's four point three yards per carry and scored two touchdowns via the run. They're not going to suddenly start stopping the run. They act gutted left and right the back in though i can think of the bad texans defense is in the past and it was probably the what two thousand nine computer keeps the screen quits working. The two thousand nine team was that when cream jackson was a rookie tin. They got torched. This is great. Frigging this is what we're the over. The texas above the computers are not working now. Great you might have to run the sound this morning if it doesn't turn back on the team though was awful that year at stopping the past it was brutal watch at just teams would come out there and just say chuck it down the field. That's going to do and yesterday that. That's that's what. The jaguars did at times. Against the texans and bradley roby's sudden absence for the team. Whatever it is other than personal reasons or disciplinary reasons whenever you want believe bradley roby went after john maclean yesterday on twitter. I did enjoy that a little bit. Because john's over there he's has a great career but i don't understand his twitter game. Sometimes i just don't and was one of those things where it was like. Well good luck with that one. John two thousand ten texans had gives us the most passing good costs of to that was it was that creams rookie was his rookie. Used to draft two thousand and ten in nine ten draft is what you an whatever. It was something around. They were awful. Because yeah you at that makes sense because in two thousand and eleven they came back and they had one of the top five defense in the league after being just downright atrocious the year before. They're not going to suddenly turn around and be that yesterday. There's just and look there gutted by the the covert stuff to an extent for a team. That's not you know good they. They were without multiple players yesterday. But they just. There's no reason to believe they're suddenly going to start stopping twenty five points to a bad jaguars team in i mean. I can't help. But think man. I don't know how scarlet ended up what they said. He had with his shoulder arm. Injury and omitted. Who got banged up. It's just feels like it's getting worse worse and it doesn't feel like there's any shot this stevenson improving hoping that the offense becomes more and more threatening be able to put up thirty forty points. There's no way the offense becomes more of a threat. Unless shawn watson goes out there yesterday like he did starts running the ball mark period because the texans suddenly have no running game and they've had no running. Jacksonville is terrible. Do johnson got a chance. History i've been asking for duke johnson. Football more sixteen carries forty one yards and a touchdown. Sixteen for forty. One is an average of two point six per carry. It felt better than what we've said. This is because david johnson has had a concussion or was he wouldn't concussion. Protocol has got big hit. He was at least two character sixteen yards but they have no threat of the running game to shawna's put up numbers all season long credit to him. He's working with what he has. It was bizarre. Though that they come out on fire from the jump and immediately they'll go in the tank and there's nothing from the offense for a while like jacksonville's not good and that's what it gets back to on. This team is that there's a lack of consistency of what goes on. And you have a chance early in the football game to really put them away or to at least key felt like keep scoring. Keep score because that team stinks. They don't do that. Yeah there's no one on the defense that you would say they should be here next year. It's just feels like anyone's to you know be taken off it in the offense. You actually expect more albums so when they go on these long stretches of nothing. It's like what what are they wouldn't year. They can't afford to do it and they're line was a little beaten up yesterday with stuff going on and everything. But they're line played like ass. Yesterday a shot had no time half the credit to the jaguars just kind of pin their. Here's back said virgin. Going to rush to sean like crazy. That's that's asia. play them. You should just go after left and right in with everything you have. And they did that and they made life difficult on him multiple times throughout the game and he was rushing around. But i mean the guys who dany he does it all the time. I hate it for him. That it this season just even in a win daily. Have two of them. It's like this is just not. There's nothing there. There's no reason for excitement. And there's no reason to be emotionally engaged in this football team other than to watch something on sunday. I'll give it this. At least the game was pretty entertaining. Yeah was for sure every both of things but outside of that. There's not much reasonable. Yeah texans football and you could see the. I mean everyone in houston does shawn having a great year and it's the rest of the team. That's not supporting him to get these ones but you can already see nationally. There's that split of. Hey there two six. The shot is in very good. You can hear that creep in. Yeah you hear it creep it infrastructure and you see it with the way that people are talking about quarterback all the delay. I saw it yesterday for a couple of national people. Talking about the young quarterbacks in this league they're set up to be great for the league for so long in like two people didn't even they're mentioned in cuyler and two and borough and herber kyle but they're mentioning all those guys. They didn't even mention josh allen. Threw for four hundred fifteen yards yesterday or show watson or they mentioned patrick mahomes of course to and lamar jackson. March exits have an answer for season. They last year in general. The ravens did not doing that. I happen somehow pulled. That went out. But yeah lamar again. It's one of those things where you have to have a system that works for him a lot of times. Sometimes you can make the throws himself but you need us. Is it wrong. But that i have showed you why. Some people are unsure on him bright. You're still you still have some questions but people just throw away the shot the in look. It's part of it is on the sean. Because you're supposed to elevate your football team to a spot where you're supposed to be better and part of the story. This season has been the inconsistencies overall. The offense and there was that sign of it again yesterday. they didn't. They should have been a game where they go out and score forty points because that team stinks jaguars and they didn't do that. Which again this nitpicking. To an extent because windsor wins. You have to take them no matter how you get them. Especially if you're like this and the and they got it yesterday. That is what matters. But he's getting he's getting the brunt of it for some reason that they're not going to do anything or he's he's not one of the bright spots of the league because they're not doing anything. He's not the reason that this team's not doing anything. He is part of the story at times as to why they're not at their peak he's going to get left out of the conversation for people like when you start putting seeing people put together these stupid list top like somebody's future type stuff. Somebody's gonna put together a top ten list of a quarterback of the quarterbacks here soon in the league know when the season ends in. Somebody's gonna leave out. It's gonna guess pissed off because it's going to sound so stupid because it is stupid but it's in part because the way the teams play and i think what is happening is why these people see the first three or four games where sean was just okay and most are the first couple really and then they don't wash the rest of the year and they are still losing that like all right so he hasn't improved much. No sean looks where he's supposed to be. He's making that step to be the next level of quarterback just rest of the team around doesn't do anything for and it's taken a minute to get in gear because we know this the weapons different guys. He's not worked with before and they're finally starting to hit a little bit of that. Brandin cooks as good early and get. I don't like the disappearing act that you see from some of them throughout games will fuller. Took him a while to get going. You finally get him go and has a nice day. Cooks numbers overall. Look good but worse random. I mean it's just it's it's an interesting thing that you know. It's a win against jacksonville. It's good to get them. You're never going to complain about victories. Especially in a year. Look if they were if they were if they had their first and second round draft. Next year i'd be pissed today to be honest with you. I wouldn't want to victory over jacksonville. i'd as many losses. We could possibly get over the rest of the season. But there's no point in losing this year. They should actually win. So go get more wins. And the cleveland. Browns are up next and doesn't have you buying back in. If they get another win next week there are sitting there. Three eight six damn it because the tiebreaker over cleveland. We didn't even mentioned that earlier. That's kind of important as well. But seven three two one two five hundred the phone number to join us. It was also historic day for. Jj watt and there's more jj watt rumors. I thought the trade deadline was gone. Oh no we'll discuss those next. Buckle up the sean sounds. Green show continues. Hello damai garside bella michael. Okay really trust no by jewelry on your roof. Show got damaged buying a bowl or come with tony on for balls or right because i go home possible on their break him all bit because he had an interesting comments. Say during the cowboys game about. Somebody's juicy ass. What homeowners to. Sean salisbury shots off today. Mike connor josh. See and you at seven one three two one two five so find us on twitter as well mc seventy. He is at j. t. s. Six nine three six nine three. Yeah no random numbers. It is random. Ross who was my license plate and we can go with that you know works. It'd be pretty cool Also the station at sports. Talk seven ninety where you can find this morning by the way the news of the morning is that and we'll discuss it and just a little bit jeff. Luneau has sued the houston astros for the over twenty million dollars at is remaining on his contract. So we will that. He's not being paid. Obviously that we will discuss later on in the show also something that is connected to the astros in the sports world which is signed stealing over the weekend. There was a funny story in college football. There's also significant news in college football because number one went down over the weekend. So we'll discuss all that is linked together as the show moves on. We've been talking to houston texans to start things off. Because they get the victory yesterday over the jacksonville jaguars twenty seven twenty five and proven to two and six on the season. Jj watt with the. I guess the most significant day of anybody because he had his one hundred sack of his career which is a big number to get. It took him way longer than i expected it to. But then you think about what. The texans are football team in the lack of help. He hasn't the defensive side of the football won't make sense why it took him. What eight games to get to that. While he was what four third of the season. I had to go. Look it up. i think that's right. Yeah maybe only two more than two right feels like it's more too but in my only be it's four it's four okay. So he has. The team lead now from merciless. He's taken it over pretty tough with four sacks on the season thanks to that but jj after the game discussing the historic moment of getting sacked number one hundred of his career. I mean i've said it before. You know what i appreciate the sentiment and everything a three or four years ago so it's not necessarily You know it's a big deal but but it's to me it's passed do so But like i told the guys in there you know anytime. A personal achievement in this game is accomplished as because of many many people. It's never just one person. This is the ultimate team game. So it's all my teammates know. Linebackers and db's covering the alignment open push a pocket offense putting teams until situations where you get the russia passer in the fourth quarter. All all that stuff comes together all the people behind the scenes helping out. So it's a it's a team sport and while it's me got one hundred today. There's a whole lot of radha hand in that something for them and you know that's very coach speaky right but if you listen. There's another tweet that the texans posted of the locker room postgame gained game ball. He said the same thing. And i truly believe that that's true. Change as you know. It's nothing has proved to us otherwise that that's not who is. I think he'd be different if the season was going in a different direction. This guy. it's clearly pissed off in wasn't happy yesterday by the way one more thing from. Jj watt with. Maybe exactly how close the game was at the end of the day. It's going to get a victory. I mean obviously we want to get the navy's as we can't hit you know talked about it before you know. It's not fun feeling when you're not winning so to get a win. The day feels good May closer than we should have What i mean you know you got your top two corners out its top three outside linebackers out starting middle linebacker out To get a win today is good for guys by rallied not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but we gotta win guy mean would get it too. He's definitely frustrated. We'll talk about the rumors. The latest rumors here in just a second but gets to sack number one hundred of his career and it's crazy to think about his career when you go look up. The years obviously was a pick for the texans in the draft. That at the time who what. I can remember watching him late. In the season at wisconsin that year the two thousand ten year before the two thousand eleven draft and he was a monster when he was at wisconsin. Like it was like. This guy is amazing but never expected the texans to take him. I didn't have any feeling about it either. Way when they did rookie season five and a half sacks and then bull twenty and a half followed by ten and a half followed by twenty and a half followed by seventeen and a half picks himself up three defensive player of the year awards legendary stuff. He is one of the greatest defenders ever but his career has been completely robbed by injury. Yeah i mean hated because after that season the seventeen and a half sack axes at the age of twenty six and twenty fifteen. The next year he played three games and one and a half sacks the next year after that he played five games and had zero sacks came back for a sixteen sack season in two thousand eighteen but next year obviously last year only play games had four sacks has four games this year. It stinks because if he did not get hurt he would have hit the one hundred sack mark. Probably i don't know back in two thousand sixteen or seventeen and he would be pushing. You would have thought one fifty in his career. Instead we're talking one hundred and the question will be can even get to one twenty one twenty five which might be too high. This bona fide without a doubt is the second. He's eligible for the hall of fame. He's going there's no question about it period. I will know about one fifty but at least one twenty five area because that's ten sexy year for a guy that's elite intense. Sex should be pretty easy for him man. The injuries did rob him of conspiring considered maybe the d. And ever but he's going to be in the conversation for at their peak disc greatest defense a weapon threat ever right. He could have been if he stay if he stayed healthy and always played like at the end of the day he would have been in the reggie white conversation but now it's your right at their peak. Who was better. It's not who's better all time. And it sucks for him. The next question of it and we just went through the trade deadline with all of these guys. We'll hear from will fuller. And just a little bit and sean on the well. Not trading of will fuller and will did not really love the rumors. Because why would you love the rumors. When you're sitting there trying to you know just not leave a city. I get it. But before the game yesterday. Jason lockenfora from cbs sports. Get everything right tossing. He does get everything right all the time. He tweeted it out early yesterday morning. And i tweeted out that it was a more like a report from bob nightingale from usa. Today when it comes to baseball. Because if you if you follow. Bob nightingale on on twitter and know anything about his reporting on twitter. It's usually not very good. it's mind blowing. That a guy has that job and gets as much wrong as he does. It is just mind blowing. But jason lockenfora ever since he left. Nfl network just never really reports anything. That's accurate and yesterday. He did report before the game online. At the texans were a virtual certainty basically to trade away. Jj watt after this season to a contender because what is no longer happy in has made it clear that he doesn't want to go through a rebuild but cited no sources that are within the organization because usually when hugh will put reports out. They the a source that there's a thought process of it. It was all speculation by other executives. Guess what other executives feed you crap and also you can just go out there and say anything. I mean look in all reality. The texans absolutely have to go down the path of thinking about trading. jj watt. they should have before the deadline. They're going to have to again this off season because their caps situation is it is a poopie is the best way to put it. They are going. Oh him seventeen and a half million dollars if he plays next. Season's not guaranteed money. They could cut him in walkway. No dead cap money. But they're going to trade him or keep him. They're not going to cut. Jj watt. yeah. I mean you in the article. They basically said the texans. You know want to do right by him and you get that but unless they really need the cash space there's zero chance that they trade why i think they'd get rid of a lot of other people before they start talking about him capitalize but if it really comes down to it i think they would but they're not replacing him with something that's elite and less jayjay says no i won't gone. There's no chance. I wanna play for losing team again. He's going to be your next to me. That is it. It is simply going to come down to. Jj watt walking into the office of mcnair or call him or whatever and saying i would like to be traded. And then you do do good. I said doodoo by. Jj watt the face of your franchise. We'll probably always unless the sean puts up a super bowl banner. In that stadium there the likelihood of anybody being more revered and love than jj watt is is not likely but if he comes to you and says yes i one out then he then you train them. I will believe the jason lockenfora report. When i see it happen until then i just take these reports with a grain of salt and said there's just no chance he i mean i think at the end of the day in this maybe to a fault for j. I just don't see him causing a problem in that's air quotes because it's not a problem. It's understandable but saying he wants to be treated. I think he's just going to say whatever you want do. I'm here for if there's an ability to communicate contender and we're struggling. Sure i would take it. But i'm not going to be the guy holding out forcing you to train me somewhere. Yeah i'm with you there. Two seven one three two one two five seven nine is the number to join us here on. The sean salisbury. Shoshana is out today. The big one it. It revolves around. Jj watt is next. John sounds ratio. Put our smart ass on your smart speaker. Google play sean salisbury on iheartradio question. Just one question one question. Big one is the big question of the day on the sean cells berry. Show the big simple today based off of the last segment that we had here on the shot salisbury. Shoshana the day off. Mike o'connor josh see with you until ten. Am you could join us at one. Three two one two five seven ninety to discuss everything going on in the world. Sports with the texans win yesterday. Jj watt though is where we are going with the big one day picks up career sack number one hundred in the victory over the jacksonville. Jaguars the report before the game from jason lockenfora from cbs. Sports says that the texans it's inevitable that they will trade. Jj watt in the next all this upcoming season because he no longer wants to lose he wants to win and knows that his time in the nfl is well shorter rather than longer. He'll be thirty two next season Cannot blame him one bit but do you think. Jj watt will play for the texans next season. That is the big one today. Way in either on twitter or on the phones seven three two one two five seven ninety. We stated at last segment josh. But until i see him. Not playing for the texans. I will never vote. Yes on this. Because he does mean something. We have had a long history of having a little bit of fun with j. J. watt times. I can remember when it felt like this guy's getting goofy and stupid for a while. There he was the Jj guy on twitter or the. Hey jj yeah hey jay oreos. Hey jj jj hey jj or the the fact that it was when he got on snapchat and he was constantly of update day it was like come on jayjay. He's what year. And a half two years older than me. And i i was like. I wasn't that goofy. You don't need to be that goofy. But i think it took it unfortunately took him not playing and getting hurt all the time for us to really be like okay. This dude is amazing. And then we see the efforts that he's had in the city for so many things whether it's the hurricane harvey or what he does like. He's a houston. He's from wisconsin. But he's a houston and we love him ever bid for it so again until i don't see him wearing a texans uniform. I'm not gonna say. He's leaving the franchise at any point. Yeah the the narrative nationally was he was a the coach. Speak guy he was corny. Here's all these things and you. You could understand it. He really did feel like he was doing his best to be captain. America every kid's role model. But that's not a bad thing either. It was just no. It's worth so people have so much personality now and being like oh man. They're the most wild dude. They're funny whatever. Jj is not the funniest guy in the world but he can be funny. He's lightened up through the years. He's just a good he's become more self deprecating example. One of the things that i love is look. We are in a city where we fight. It feels like fans for attention of the sports world. Respect of the sports world. Get forgotten down here it just. It's the truth. It sucks just the truth now. I don't care the older. I get about that like i did when i was younger. But it's something that when you do have that that fire in your belly piss you off and this guy is part of an era of houston sports. Basically since he's been here. They has a ton of star power and has put houston on the map for a lot of people in remind people that. Hey we're pretty good at what we do down here and we've got a lot of great people that do it now. Unfortunately there's not a lot of championships behind it. We have the one we've had some close calls and some other teams But it's just been the one but think about it. I mean he is. Put the the city of houston. He's put the franchise on the map. And as much as i get mad and pissed off and and love to love it but when they are going bad we love to get mad. He's been part of the era of the houston texans becoming at least until bill. O'brien came in and said home. America mirman a whiz all over this place. yes. I just stood up and pretended. I'm whizzing everywhere. He put the texans on the math. Being respect a respectable franchise and a franchise that has now look. This isn't saying that they're a great history but they have a history now of being a winner since two thousand ten dave one more than they've lost every team's gonna lose at some point but they're not as awful as they were before this and he's a large part of that held the guy. The guy hosted saturday night. live for christ sakes. How many times the houston athlete ever going to be asked to do that in our lives like he's big time and i've enjoyed every second of his career and i hope that i do personally hope it doesn't end. I don't want it to watch it in. Because he matters to me. And if you think about all the houston teams the guys who represent houston in her proud to be from houston. It's him into my opinion lance mccullers. Those are the two guys who tried to ingrain themselves with houston more than anybody league guy like that do it. Astros players really like all of them really. I mean you're right. Mccullers really goes on. It gets the green bay has gone. I mean he's kinda he's not what category because he's more of the he's superstores. He's he's at that level. He knows how to carry that. We've seen with the other guys though too. I mean like there's something about can't imagine when you're jj you get drafted back in two thousand. Eleven by the texans from your from wisconsin. And the texans stink. They don't have a history of anything. You come down here. And i can remember. I was at the practice in training. Camp and wade phillips was the defensive coordinator verse first season. And it's like his first comets. Were all standing around. Wade phillips and in wade phillips fashion. Jj watt. he's going to be a bust one day and everybody kind of goes. What a boston. The hall of fame. Okay okay. i mean look. That's a lot jay. What hadn't even played a game in the league at this point in is making these statements in jokes. Now wait is. Awesome and wade phillips. If you're out there this morning you want to call in and discuss. Jj watt getting to one hundred sacks. I mean he's gone. He's here live here. I live here Somebody get wade phillips a message telling he can call seven three two one two five seven ninety. Yeah he was big on wanting to traff. Jj watt as well. When they did. But i was that you think about it now is like crazy statement to make and it's not crazy because it turned out very quickly that i've spent calm bum phillips. I don't know why it's his father but wade phillips was absolutely right. He is going to be a bust in the hall of fame. And i do hope that like so many of the players that we've been able to see. I think it got started because the first two real like real hall of famers that we had at least on the baseball side of bagwell busy. Oh they played their whole career. Obviously a team went somewhere else finishes that didn't exist though the raptors the raptors year does not exist. You wanna see your guys play their entire career in the same uniform in your city especially again with the guy who is so ingrained in the city was just someone who played here but it was kind of all the limelight. You didn't notice that much but always productive of you one thing but a guy who's in front of the camera the guy who's the face of houston sports nationally right now in probably for the last five ten years. You want to see that guy. Stay here you really do. And we'll see how it plays out seven one three two one two five seven hundred. That is the number to join us. Airline sean salisbury. Show this morning. Show with the day off mike connor an josh see up next there is some news revolving around the houston astros. This morning there is a lawsuit by a former employee. I'll tell you about it next year on sports. Talk ninety going non. Stop sean. With former sean salisbury. Good morning to you. Beautiful city of houston texas on dreary monday. But there you feeling good. Connor jaffe with you here on sports. Talk seven nineties. The texans got the victory over the jaguars. Get back to them in a bit. Jj watt will he remain houston texan for the rest of his career. We discussed that as well. We're going to look around the league as well because there was some interesting stuff that went on in the nfl also in the college football world over the weekend. But the houston. Astros are in the news this morning because well what are you know. Something about the sign stealing fallout is still existing. I am. I think like most of us tired of having to fight it. But we're always guess what we're going to have to die on that hill. It's just what are houston. Sports life is going to be. It's never gonna go away as long as this astros team is still good and competing and and these guys are still here like it's going to take a new generation of astros baseball to kind of make this an a story that will be brought up well when we discussed the team that won the title. That you which by the way. I'm wearing my astros 2017. Champion sweatshirts this morning. That has definitely shrunk joshua's astros hat. We miss astros baseball here on your home for the stroz. Sportstalk seven ninety. But there's a report out there this morning from the What the los angeles times had early this morning. And i'd gotten a whiff of this. I can't lie a while ago that this was actually something that was going on. And i didn't even know maybe i assure checked on it and that could have reported something for the first time in my life. But i did not do that. We've heard from jeff luneau in his interview with Channel two here locally. I think he's done at least one other interview with the podcast or does it have been writer who all stuff. I've not listened to a yet. Either but i knew i saw some quotes that came out of it and it felt like he was still doing the same. Hey it wasn't my fault. I i didn't know type i'm exhausted by at all and honestly have not had the energy to go listen to it yet. But jeff luna's back in the in the news today because he has filed a lawsuit against the houston astros because of what he is calling a breach of contract. He is father lawsuit against the astros owner. Which is jim crane. An major league baseball is mentioned in this quite a bit because he says in this lawsuit that jim crane and baseball's commissioner rob manfred basically negotiated penalties for these sign stealing scandal that enabled the team to paint luneau as the scapegoat for the organization and fire him as the general manager in order to save more than twenty two million dollars in guaranteed salary. Obviously jeff was mentioned quite a bit. Luna's lawsuit this is from the time story. Luna's lawsuit uses quotation marks around the word investigation and calls a negotiated resolution between crane and manfred that enabled the team to keep its world series championship which they were never going to take away went to great lengths to public exonerate crane and scapegoated luneau for a sign stealing scandal that he had no knowledge of or played a part played. No part in luneau has not found work in baseball. His suit is filed in texas district court in houston alleges. The astros breached their contract with him because of because none of the conditions that would be considered as just cause for his dismissal actually occurred in his report. Manfred said lunar denied knowing about the astra sign stealing scheme suspended him because the general manager should be aware of the activities of his staff and players manfred as also cited evidence that indicates luneau had some knowledge of the schemes that statement the suit alleges based on selected snippets from the three documents. One referenced codebreaker and other that reference the system and a third that referenced. Dark arts science stealing is considered an art in baseball and the suit alleges that none of the documents mentioned the infraction in question in game electronic sign. Stealing this whole thing is going to be interesting to how this lawsuit plays out for a couple of reasons first of all. You're still not going to sit here and tell me jeff luna included. I love jeff luna still to this day because jeff luneau built a baseball team that was incredible and gave us as part of the story as to why we have our first world series title. And you're never going to take away that joy for me. But i'm never going to believe jeff for one second if he's going to sit here and continue to die on that hill of telling me i didn't know anything about it. I didn't have anything to do with. That man was involved in everything. He was the guy that was running the organization. So sell it how you want. He knew he fricken new. Look from a legal standpoint. i get it. If there's not a bunch of evidence out there gonna fight it because why the hell not you want your twenty two million bucks. He's already made a lot of money. But twenty two million dollars more. Guess what you want. Damn money is says later on was basically out with him being fired it keeps it set to have profit sharing from the astros like he was going to make more money than than twenty two million bucks because they astros. We're gonna make more money than that. So he's look you wanna be made whole a little bit for being let go. Aj hinch worked out his contract which we have no idea how much it was four and how much he was making but he had the extension as well with little i think. Aj hinch is making a bunch of money but he in crane came to a resolution on his deal and they worked it out. Ludo obviously did not do that. And here we go with a lawsuit. The interesting thing from this is that what could this reveal in court on the baseball side of things. How complicit were they everything that went on in the sport and just basically turning an eye to it. I am not interested to hear jeff luna side of it. I'm not interested to hear any of that part. Because i know this again. He was involved. Yes our involved. It's just like the red sox say only the video guy knew about it. Jeff lunar new about maybe like you said maybe there's not the proof to say and that's where he's going with it but the main this all this comes down to is after the interview. I feel like jeff who saw the reaction realize okay. I am never going to get a job in baseball again. How do i get some more money than i was. This was this lawsuit is not all the it might have just been filed but this has been in the works. I do know that so this has been on his mind for a while. I think no matter wh- he was going to baseball or no. You definitely was in his mind. Because i think he also knew that there was never going to get a shot but i think the reaction is potentially what said all right. This is one hundred percent gonna go down. I'm doing this. Because i want my money. I want to try and say look the court said. I didn't know you can hire me. Don't have to worry about me. Not knowing but again he knew this make when it goes to courts we may find out more people knew maybe frame somehow new. I don't know that at all. I don't think he did. Because i can imagine. Owner not knowing stuff that goes on on the clubhouse but all luna is trying to save his name. You should just don't believe anything. This guy says right now because he wants his money. That's all that matters simmer right and and look if i was his position again as well i would fight it to if there was money to be had. And there's little actual evidence that really linked you to doing it. I do the exact same thing. I think a lot of us would. It's just like sign stealing stuff. We're in the middle of that if it's going on and we're doing well and all this stuff we do it too and we wouldn't sit back and do anything to stop it just like everybody else did and also look that the real thing. That is intriguing about anything. That's left this story a lawsuit specifically like we've heard is the fact that we're waiting for jeff lunar or somebody to drop the bomb on somebody else whether it's rob manfred. Who is a complete. Ask for the way he handles everything. And we'll talk more about him later because they had the justin turner on friday. Which boy what do you know. Major league baseball egg on its face. Oh alex cora's back on its face. Baseball's complicit in everything. Baseball is a has been a poorly run sport for two straight commissioners but ceiling was an idiot. Rob manfred is an idiot. And they're doing everything they can to cover up a real issue because they don't want steroid era two point. Oh even if it's steroid era two point oh sign. Stealing has been going on in baseball for its entirety. Sorry that you didn't do anything to police the use of technology and you had multiple teams. That were caught in the middle of the season. But good god. Let's keep fighting this fight. It's the houston astros and nobody else. Yeah i think the only way that lou now becomes acura in this lawsuit is if he takes down somebody else he can take some down other people and say look. Maybe he's not trying to say oh someone else in the astros have blamed but look at what. Mlb is doing all around and they're trying to put the focus solely on me and houston saying that. We're the only ones doing it. Yes that's what it comes down to is. Does he have more than makes the yankees or the red socks. Look more guilty. Then they already are because guess what both were guilty of it just as much as the astros and you just don't have somebody that detailed at all because we didn't have a damn idiot like mike fires rat and everybody out in truly do believe that is a good possibility. Because if he didn't think that. I think this would be more on the astros that he be below the lawsuit against. I know he's saying that the crane and manfred agreed to the punishment. But i think in general he wants to point out to the court system. The mlb is complicitous because they knew more people are doing it. I think it's going to completely not happy with being fired. I get it. I would not have fired him. But it was jeff luna's herbs. Jim crane decision to do that. Because it's his organization and look if there was a real backdoor brokering a deal. That can be proven. That's going to. That's going to look bad. That i'm still not going to be mad at jim crane for it because guess what is jim craze right to do that is his right to go out into into negotiated deal with the commissioner because his his day obtain exactly if it's not his is not an issue that he did it. It's the fact that the. Mlb came to tumor in the first place. They shouldn't have done that crane sane yell we can discuss. This is not an issue. That's just a dumb move by manfred. He should have just done what he believed was right. Go into the actual owner makes it complicit. Hey we don't want this to be bigger deal in is we. Don't want it to destroy your franchise. How do we make this work on. Trains point our crate side. You understand where he would wanna do that on me. And i said you no. You don't care about that had been going through. Pr nightmare there. That's just a fact that they had from the todman thing to the way that was handled by the people that did it. It was it was not good. It was really really bad and jim crane. Didn't want to continue this as much as possible and look that they even screw up a little bit of their response to it. All but the whole thing is is jim cranes team. I'm just sitting back waiting for the bond to be dropped on everybody else in the stones to be thrown a major league baseball because everybody in the game had been throwing those stones glasshouse as well seven one. Three two one. Two five nine is the number to join us. We'll discuss more on that also more links to the sign stealing and football. I will give you that in a second hour as well right here. Let's four stocks of anti rated quarterback. Sean sounds very this. Is the sean salisbury show. Second hour of the sean salisbury. Show begins now. Mike connors josh. See with you sean. But the day off as we are discussing. Texans getting a victory over the jags yesterday. Moving into two and six. Are you buying back in. Is this a super bowl winning team seven one three two one two five seven ninety. I don't think that anybody is doing today. But if you are that person that is so optimistic. That is drinking that kool-aid this morning. Good god come in here and drinker kool-aid on the radio with. I would love to hear why we were discussing the astros lawsuit now because jeff luneau has the team or is suing the team over twenty two million dollars that he was still on his contract when he was let go by the team earlier. In twenty twenty We'll get back to that and just bit. We'll get to the college football world as well because there is a link to the astros in college. Football what yeah. I'll tell you about that as the show moves along also the big upset or i guess. It's an upset. It would've been upset. If trevor lawrence is with clemson goes down to notre dame what kind of implications will that have on the college football playoff when we get to that. We'll discuss as well lead back to those houston texans yesterday because they get the twenty seven twenty five victory over the jacksonville jaguars and again you can join us. Two seven one three two five seven hundred or on twitter mc ninety. Jt s six nine three and at sports. Talk seven hundred for the station to shawn watson. One thousand nine thirty two yesterday to eighty one two touchdowns no picks haven't himself a very good statistical season. You can easily make the argument. And i get it that. He's still not one of the now. Look just on this season. We discussed this earlier. He's not one of the ten best quarterbacks in the league because his team to an six and they've only beaten the jacksonville jaguars twice in los. Everybody else that they've played. I would still think you're stupid and crazy to not have him in your top ten of quarterbacks in the league but look i can get for the on this season standpoint. Why he would not be there you. You'd be the person who cares more about the final result more than actual performance actual performance wise. He's you'd be. But i get it when you say. He is leading his team to victories. And at the end of the day it's the most important stat for the quarterback is the wins in moscow. We always ask for growth from sean every season in certain areas more than anything. It's been to quit holding onto the football so long to get rid of it and equipped being that hero and this season. I think he has done a very good job of look. He still holds onto the ball too long at times. But he's done that by getting out and extending the plight to throw it away. He did that multiple times yesterday. Good that was really good of you to do. His dini act is incredible. I mean he is so athletically gifted. It's silly one of the things. I've asked for and wanted more of this out of him. As the seasons moved along has been him possibly running the football because there has not been a lot of. I'm not asking for a ton of design runs. But if he runs on broken place yet. Feels like the texans in the offseason. You get healthwise. Didn't want to get hurt but it feels like there was a hey. Don't run as much we need you. We don't want you to take that chance and it feels like once cornell took over it was more. Just be you man. And that's what showing or making lots and look like what we expect from watson. And that's what he should be. He's carried the ball now. This season forty times for one hundred ninety seven yards and one touchdown so he's averaging a career low twenty four point six yards per game. It's again something that makes him dynamic and this team is so bad at running the football. You need it you need. And he had fifty yards. Yesterday was clearly needed. It more because you lost david johnson early in the game and i still. I don't know how they have not found one competent guy off the street to coming to run the football and i said it feels like when it was honestly a little better than what it's been it's awful. I mean it was horrible. They're the only thing. I think the reason it feels like. It's better when you have do johnson. Because he catches the football sure he was four catches for thirty two. But running the football yesterday. Sixteen carries for forty one yards and touchdown. And i've been sitting here. Kind of gimme more johnson around the football just to see it because we've not seen it. There's no reason to run. David johnson at all. And there's honestly there's no reason for david johnson to still be on the football team. He's been a bad running back average four yards a carry. He averages fifty yards a game. They made a massive mistake. We're not going back down the deondraye hopkins whole. We know that that was horrible. But getting david johnson was the only way that they should have ever gotten. This guy was when the cardinals him to give them a chance and that would have been a mistake in the first place. 'cause they let go of a guy that was twelve hundred yards last season or eleven hundred yards and well they also go through still free agent. You wonder is he. Not even better than this at this. And i hated watching. Lamar miller run to be honest. He was brutal to me because he was captain. Get the ball crumble. But anything would be better in david. Johnson there's just and that's part of why sean season has been a little bit of a down is because they they don't have they're not there are one. They're not a multiple team there. One facet throwing the football. That's it that's the only threat that they have the you. They're not threat running the football team. So teams don't have to worry about the threat of running it. But sean yesterday after the game discussing a few things we will start with his thoughts on his weapons because yesterday they got rolling one hundred yards to will fuller eighty three for brandin cooks a bunch of guys getting a mix taking place Possession place and everything you throw in cobb and mistake when he comes in and then you get those tight ends rolling i it can be very very scary so we still append the pieces together and getting that chemistry building up and You know things are continue to roll continuing to roll. Glad he got a victory. Keeps saying this. There's no reason for them to lose. Because you're just helping the dolphins. The dolphins keep winning so the dolphins really want you to lose. They keep winning. They're having the perfect season. While you're season has just been sorry for the word children. The texans season has been ass. That's the only way to describe it to shine after the game as well on everybody including me wanting him to run the football more. You know teams know that. So they do things where they chartered the skies a linebacker depending on what the concept is. you know sitting out there so yeah there's opportunities for me to if there's more opportunities for him moving forward to run the football and look if they want to make this thing interesting he's going to have to do it. He has to run the ball more and take the risk of unfortunately taking hits. You don't want that you never want that. You want to see him stay clean. You want to see him. Never be in danger of anything but for this team to be dynamic. They're going to need him to go out there and do it because they cannot do it at all. They stink at it. So here's a hope hoping four that happening and here's to hoping hoping that the weapons continue to do things like they did which is have long touchdowns for brandin cooks we'll fuller and on will fuller row. Quick josh will will use the good lord. Where am i on the sheet. I totally lost my spot. This is all because of my computer being awesome today number fourteen. This past week talks of will fuller. And being traded to sean on that not having that been held. Sure honestly but nowadays I'm glad that the katina play will will You know we've been making a lot of big bay play since i came into the lead together in Continue to go and continue to do that as we continue to go the rest of this year hopefully risks are that is will fuller or that. He's excuse me shawn watson. I'm looking at my discussing willfuller now. Being trade we'll fuller actually was the first time we've able to hear from him after the game yesterday as well was asked. What does it still mean to. Well be a tax and because he wasn't supposed to be just a few days ago it means a lot you know i want to be here. You know i love. God's love playing with the sean Draft have been here my whole career so not love it here and then Just continue to square every game to do my best team win and Hopefully can keep stacking wins and look again there. There's no reason to lose. So i hope they do it as well. Wrap up with wolf are on this on what it was like to sit around and have to wait on the rumors of being possibly trended to be honest. I really sucked you know. Just you know to be around there Just you know giving his organization maugham all coming to work every day. You know very unselfish player Do everything they asked. And then just be shopped around as On a certain type of way but Like i said. I'm happy to be here. I'm happy to sean and continue to try to get with organization that's will fuller being honest. Yeah it's nice to hear that from the team being truthful about how they feel. It feels like a lot of times. We weren't able to hear this for a few years. it's his first taste of business for sure. Yeah of this sport. And it's unfortunate. But the texans had to go down that road and at least see for the betterment of their team and what this means for the future of him here. I don't know. I still don't know what what is. His future is here not i bet on being a yes but you know i'd be pissed too. I think the sean saying it would have been helpful if they traded him. I think that gives the texas more of a art. Let's keep our guy happy. Let shop these other veterans before we go before we get rid of fuller we'll franchise tag and maybe we may not want to give them the full money. But we don't wanna spend as much money on the water seniors. But we're going to go more worry about the cooks. In the stills who's also free agent in the cobbs before we worry about getting rid of fuller because of that dynamic ability those to have and the chance that can be this dynamic for years to come. It's going to be an interesting off season for the texans. Once they get there in terms of how they handle it who's here and who is not here. Seven one three two one two five seventy romeo cornell. He talked about deluxe nuts again. We can discuss that next right here. On the sean salisbury. Show up at the crack of dawn at the crack of stacey jennifer caron. At least he was back at his football glory. Days as it's up at dawn. Which on the sean salisbury show. But average non chas salisbury. Show here on sports. Talk seven hundred. He has the day off my connor and josh here with you said one three two one. Two five seven. Nine of the texans with the victory yesterday over the jacksonville. Jaguars are they. Back in playoff contention. Are you a complete believer seven one three two one two five seven ninety. We'll get to romeo cornell in just a bit but of course you guys are important as well. We've discussed so many things to do with the texans get back to the astros and just bit college football. We will have fun at some point this morning tip because there is something that oh and by the way. Isn't it a nice escape to avoid election. Talk this morning Well what are you know. And by the way don't ever make a joke on twitter literally joke. That has nothing to do with being supportive of either side. Unless you know at all. I did it about trump tweet on saturday. Or whatever. about a maiden atlanta falcons joke in. I literally lost like one hundred dollars on twitter. I don't really care about those things. I just noticed it. Because i was like i tweeted it within like an hour down. Like what the hell. I wasn't supporting the other side or saying anything about it. I was literally making heads It's always best to just say who cares about anything else. Let's just talk sports when it comes to twitter because people search for anything. I don't give two rats you know what's about politics at all. It's hot game. So i stick to actual games playing a game of sports in talking about that. So we're your escape from the constant somebody one or somebody didn't win or we have. Who the hell knows. What's going on in dc can figure that out. Let's get to brian next. what's up. Brian was going on guys Man you know. What the texans look really good yesterday i think. Jj add some energy back and the shaun was being agile. I mean they completely different. And i don't know i don't think i really don't think they're gonna make the playoffs. I hope they do but they got a long way to go but they look like a got it. I'm you know for some reason. They look like they have. And i don't know that guy column early burs on and he's a quarterback and we'll talk you later thanks. Brian look pretty nasty. Grammy said but man good. Look that's probably the most random phone the we had a while in. If you wanna make a random phone calls well you're allowed to against one three two one two five seven hundred completely disagree jackson right. They've played two games against a horrible jacksonville team. That has no interest in winning football games and yesterday they let a guy named jake luton throw for three. Oh eight on them or through a fork. Excuse me he was twenty six. Th he only had twelve incompletions. The guy had literally never played an nfl game before he only had twelve incompletions. He was the sixth round draft pick. They passed over. Mike glennon to play this guy yesterday. My glenn is not good. There's reasons a backup. But he's a veteran. They passed over him to play this guy. He had twelve incompletions. He almost threw the ball forty times. So look if you wanna believe after yesterday they they look better. They got it in them or something. Go forward more power to you. That's your personal choice. My personal choice is not have that feeling because watching them again. It was the same story as it's been all season. They should have won that game by eight ton against a bad jacksonville team and they did and they won by two points and they allowed a bad team to go up and down up and down the field on them all day long. Have a chance to tie it at towards the end of the game of force. Ot again against a very bad team right. All they had to do was converted to a two point version. Now we're talking about an overtime game. And i think a lot it would. Brian is seen. I think it's worth a lot of fans see in the fact that your quarterback and you're d- end never give up and they're always going to put their best foot forward right. It's very coach. Biki here but it's true. Those guys are two guys who never give up on a game or a season. But i think a lot of the other guys on the team. It feels like they know the season's over and it feels like some going through the motions. They're going through the motions exactly and i just. I think that's where you were here in. Jj's frustration last couple of weeks. I think it's what you hear watson. Not as energetic correct excited as he usually is but when you have those two guys you always feel confident. And we're glad to have them and we'll be glad to have him for years to come hopefully but those are the only two guys that right now. I have complete faith in. I will give them this season. At least they come off their bye week this time around there and they did last year under bill brian. Because last year they went to london. Play the jags had the bye week. Came back after a extended by weight because they had they had a longer break with it. You are traveling t onto now so it was no. That was a sunday game early. Now that it's the off time was still the same. They played on a thursday or something like that. And then i want to say. They had a bye week in in london. Maybe i won't do want to a longer time period. They had a longer period of time off between. Maybe it wasn't the bi week. I think you're right now. Now my whole point is screwed. I'm an idiot. I may have been buy weeks by we. Can they at least one their football game. They work complete ass. They weren't great again. Jacksonville terrible terrible. They outgained yesterday. Four hundred twelve yards three seventy four. That's not good. That is not a recipe for turning your season. Around at all at all because guess. What's ahead on the schedule next week. You do get the cleveland browns. Will you mentioned it earlier. Baker mayfield is on the cove list. But i guess you would think that matt stafford got off the covert lists pretty quick right. He was on there for just a few days for the lions and played this. Yesterday you would think baker mayfield unless he just suddenly test positive is going to be off of it. You get them at cleveland next week. Guess what the texans are going to do. Probably against the cleveland. Browns baker mayfield place. Even if he's not great baker mayfield's gonna have a great day and the browns are going to beat the texans because they're better football team new england the week after that home. You should actually win that. Football game new england's not that good at detroit thanksgiving day detroit goes and loses again yesterday that they're the ultimate they can look okay for a couple of quarters and they go in suck but guess what matt stafford have a hell of a day at you. Yeah even though he got been there. It just feels like he's this defense. Yeah he'll feast. And i'll say this though i wouldn't put too much money on it. Don't get me wrong but in the back of my mind for some reason i feel like there's a good chance of texans rattle off three wins and this is only because three straight after this after after this yes four straight and this is the only reason why the two teams after cleveland. I think they could be. I don't think it's a long shot. That they get the wins against cleveland. The book is alan baker. If you do some adjustments and change your ideas that they have. The personnel hosts snap they. He doesn't look as good. But there's you're right. They don't feel like even with that they could win. But it's i don't know there's just some gut feeling at the win even more. Get the fans back in it and then not make it. Now look if they go and rattle off three straight after this win against the jags okay. We're clearly talking about something because it'll be at five and Exactly they'll actually be alive the star believing and then again. The nfl still have no idea. We've heard the rumors but we don't know yet. It could be eight teams out of the afc instead of seven. That was expanded this season so if it does become eight and they are able to beat the bad teams that are ahead of them even if they are a bad team in worse than these teams that they're playing at the moment they they're going to be alive for eight can get you in the playoffs at that point. That's all they would have to get to in all likelihood eight eight nine seven that means only one loss the rest of the season. You do play the colts twice which you're not going to do and you still have a game against tennessee at the end of the season. Unless they're completely sold up everything where they're going to be there. They're probably going to be playing everybody though even to get cincinnati joe. Burrow's throw for four hundred yards on a white girl. He's he's tossing it left and right. Every team's quarterback is going to throw for three hundred plus on you should fact so for even any kinda sorta hope you'll want to have that in you. It's not likely to happen period. At least you didn't go out yesterday and look like the biggest joke overrated team in the league will discuss them next. Because if you don't what did not watch sunday night football last night it was a doozy and maybe it changed our minds on the rest of the league will discuss that next on. The sean salisbury show saying is on the only mass the houston sports bubble for the city of houston. Because i love this city. Sean salisbury get in the bubble onset of ninety centers under center to receivers. Kimberlites is along with tight end. Threes drop back to throw. Looking over the middle hiddensee touchdown sanders back to the lineup emmanuel sanders. Right on the goal line reaches across brees. Hit is he throws by the gets enough on it and the saints take twenty to nothing lead here in the first half your story. The nfl weekend on a weekend. That actually had quite a few storylines of significance but the saints last night josh. See here with unique. sean salisbury. Show he has the day off tomorrow. Though the saints last night on sunday night football not a great game to watch after the well really the first half lead. You go to bed early. Yeah i did but they go into tampa and kick the you know what out of the second win against them this season so that's big and significant for the race. In the nfc south both teams will be in the playoffs. But it matters in terms of the seating even if homefield doesn't mean as much anymore First time tom brady has been swept by team in one year in nineteen seasons for all that. Afc east for all that goodwill that they built up that being the bucks over last really since that game against the that was their first game of the season. Right against the saints. Great now one. They've they've lost one more time since but they'd really. Tom had been playing great football since green bay on they looked like the best team in the nfc. That's that's exactly right and tom brady. One of his worst games of his career last night one of the picks was what a tip ball. The linemen had another one. Was stan tonio brown in tom. Being completely off communication and dantonio cutoff route and throws it past him and that balls picked off but the buccaneers last night. Maybe go from there going to play in their home field in tampa and the super ball. That are we sure about that tom. Saints have gotten themselves rolling. They looked bad early in the year and drew brees looked awful but now they're six and two and breathe might not push the ball down the field. That's going to see the interesting thing when you get to the playoffs. You know how to defense is play them because things ramp up and change because he cannot push the ball down the field much at all. I mean he averaged what six point nine yards per attempt last night but threw for two hundred twenty. Two yards only had six incompletions and four touchdowns. Yeah i mean we were talking about this off air. I believe i said before the week that this felt like a game that the saints reminded everyone. Hey we're still contenders that the stuff you're saying that we're done. That's that's not really who we are. We didn't have our best receiver the last couple of weeks. We didn't have our second best. Receiver regained guys off the streets and then they go out there and that defense looked. It's what you kind of thought. This things defense would be closer to you than what they've been. I mean they held brady to twenty four point. One of twenty four point one pass rate his first app worst of his career. If you're able to do that to tom you got a pretty good defense. Because tom is still a pretty good quarterback after the last few weeks. Yeah i mean he'd like he's had his game is first game against the saints was not this bad. That looked like the guy that we watched last season. That just sucked us over. All number season still a great twenty almost twenty four hundred yards twenty touchdowns and seven picks picks are definitely up because he throws three and one game last night and i still think that he's back closer to being tom brady. The question is going to be as if they have to play a team like that. Come playoff time. He's beatable but then you go look at the. Nfc picture or the picture. The nfl as a whole there aren't a lot of teams that can play the defense that saints play in all honesty. And there's not a bunch of juggernaut defenses in the league anymore. There's no really especially after this week and we saw even the team that you think is the best team. The steelers are a lot teams beatable in the cope with the covert stuff on top of this. When everybody's getting left and right being put on this list like guaranteeing anything this year is just. It's not possible in to me. The biggest worry for the bucks outside of you know the saints in oslo probably justice saints in the see. I don't really feel that they can't beat any other team. The seahawks defense isn't very good. So i don't feel like they could shut down. Tom brady in the super bowl. It's the steelers and chiefs and the to me. The chiefs look like again. They are the best team carolina exactly. And maybe that's the credit to carol carolina better than we thought. Rule clearly is really good at what he does and there's a reason why he was getting. Nfl offers before at least getting his name was a runabout out. There in my guide to the new york giants probably feel so stupid for not hiring that guy when everybody just kinda for a longtime assume that he'd be the giants head coach. Yeah it was a watching the end of that game. You could understand him trying to get those little shots to get closer and closer field goal. He's had some moments like every you know. Young coach is going to have in terms of young rookie head coach and but they're questionable decisions but you saw the field goal that's too. It was really tough for got make and that's why he did that type of thing. Really good football. I mean they and they made life difficult on the she'd be your rhyming. They are right there with everybody else. I still feel that the tampa bay buccaneers are a real threat to win at all. But you definitely have to take this into account like they aren't the hands holders above everyone team. Their defence didn't do a damn thing last night. Their defense played a lot better as the season. Going on a maybe. It gets back to the point. There's too many cooks in the kitchen. There are so many weapons that they have that maybe at times you. They feel like they're spread the ball around. They're trying to spread the ball around too much. Antonio brown does make his debut. Last night i had three catches for thirty one yards played. I think thirty nine smash that team. But mike evans isn't having gracie. I know he's been banged up and chris goblins been banged up as well. They lost oj howard which i was really significant because he and brady were really starting to click. A gronk had been playing better football. He is a terrible drop in the end zone last night. Like that's the story of the. Nfl weekend was how awful they looked in. They don't top of it. It's kinda like we're watching with the texans here if you have no threat to run the football and all and they had no threat last night and now they were down a lot so they didn't have the chance but they ran the ball five times five the entire game five times for eight yards as a team. They have leonard fournette that they picked up right before the season he ran the ball. One time ronald jones ran the ball. Three blaine gabbert one. Technically which. I guess it was at a. I didn't watch the game. I'm guessing he was running around. Got who the hell knows. But that's all they have on the attempts thing and when you can't run the football and all or at least threatened to do it. You got no chance when you look at the bucks defense. You know the rush defense is amazing there if there's a team that doesn't have a quarterback that's elite they're gonna beat them pretty good even with the qb's they can looks good still if they get pressure but the question mark has been on. That defense is their secondary sure. They've have some talent but it's now at that front. Seven is at all if you have a drew brees. Even though aaron rodgers didn't look very good against the bucks those are the type of guy you make the adjustments and nowhere to target the weak link. They can put up numbers like the saints did. But we haven't seen the other teams do that much this year but last night showed hey. This is the blueprint to beat this team. And look bill just to but you know maybe again. We all kind of wrote the saints off early in the season as a real super bowl type threat there now. Six and two. We all kind of stupid for that. Especially given the way that the that the seattle seahawks continue to be complete asks on defense. They lose yesterday. Forty four thirty. Four was the final. And that one of the bills. The josh allen when russell wilson does it have one of those league games. That's what it can turn into three picks three three pig game. Yeah he had one of those against the cardinals where he lost on football and had won last night or yesterday afternoon and look. He's opened himself up to be impasse in mvp discussion. He's having games like that like that's going to be a thing but they The saints right now my actually be the favourite again in the nfc and sorry to to drew brees for the premature putting you in the grave like so many of did look again. He still looks like a different player. Doesn't look as great. We know about the lack of arm strength but they are now sitting one seat in the nfc again like they have been last couple of years. They're right there to be the one seed and they actually are getting back to playing to their capabilities of what the team says. It was on paper the complete opposite of what you have here. We had this look on paper this season that this team could be this or this team could be that. And they've played nowhere close to what some of the talent says. Maybe that gets back to. The talent is completely overrated. So i was to me. The story of the weekend though is what happened last night in tampa bay in the nfl focus. I still can't my jaws a little bit on the floor that it was that big of a beatdown. I'd i know sean has been mentioning that. He had the books as a super bowl favorite even up until last week. And i think if you got to choose every week. I think the saints may be that team in the nfc now. Probably the favorites that team nfc now and afc wise. It's pittsburgh and the chiefs. You know in of cool stat. That i saw this weekend patrick mahomes. Through one hundred touchdown pass correct. Yeah he is only thrown nineteen picks in his career. Other guys that are elite. In when they threw their first hundred touchdown. Pass aaron rodgers. Thirty four. Tom brady had fifty three joe montana fifty four degrees sixty three peat. Manning sixty nine. Nice john ninety ninety-five that shows high five. Yeah ninety five at that point. She's footage is again. Shows that the chiefs sealers and those are the there level above everyone else and now you can have the saints in something that drives us absolutely nuts with the texans and it's it has not gotten any better since bill. O'brien has been gone. I think tim kelly's playcalling. It's just it's exactly what you expected to be. Might be slightly better than what bill. O'brien had been doing collar. But go watch the play calling the chiefs game yesterday. The touch the touchdown where they fake left and pat comes back. A motion innovative. They're so innovative. And they're just then really it continues. Ramp it up. And he's not technically calling all the plays but he has a massive part of it airbnb at the top of the texans list of candidates to be the next head coach and it doesn't take a genius to know that if nothing else. It's because he seemed the creativity. When you have an elite quarterback that can do so many things you can bring that here and maybe you don't bring all of it but you can see what works in this other place and bring it here. Make to sean. And he's the more we learned from one of the best coaches ever. That is to me the perfect bowl of guy that you want your guy to come from a tree from because that coach adapts all the time in does is it stuck in his ways and isn't a dictator. Like you had with bill. O'brien when he came from the bill belichick tree just plain simple seven one three two one two five. Seven hundred is the number to join us here. On the sean salisbury. Show college. Football also turned into a mess of the weekend on the field during the game and after the game we discussed next on sportstalk seven. This is the sean salisbury. Show she wanted. She wanted all the ball in the shotgun. Twelve spot steps up to his life throws completes pitch the hard ball on the ground trying to pound number one thousand hotel. The ethics finally got a little while college. Football season. sean. Salisbury show connor josh. See with you set one three two one two five seven ninety s the clemson tigers. Go down they. Go up to south bend. And they play the notre dame fighting. Ours is a big day for catholics on saturday. Joe biden is a catholic. Apparently i did not know this until we heard this on the news that he's a catholic. And then the catholics win football game against number one so that was the. I'm a catholic. But i didn't know these things. That was the phones gaming college football and a couple years. I have like texting. Lsu seven overtime game. I think that was the best team so it was a bad game at times because the officiating and it was horrific brutal. Actually how many were there had to be at least a half hour of just reviews. Maybe like second overtime. Only get that. You want to make sure it's right half the time. But they over review things at college football. They reviewed every touchdown in frigging game. It's like okay he scored. We don't need to look at it. We saw with our own two is like they. May they went to the booth then came back went to again and then they make a decision. I believe that happened two times. It was just like how long are we going to do. This like the booth should make the decision. We're done all right. Move on not thirty minutes. A game being added on just to watch he got internet. But this completely shakes up the standings at the moment in college. Football with the victory for notre dame. Yeah you have to feel great. If you're notre dame football fan to get the victory period yeah and feels like you're in the playoffs. Almost guaranteed at this point unless you choke against a bad team. That's number one. They will play again in the conference championship. Game with notre dame playing. Acc this year part of me though. It'd be a notre dame fan like goblin. trevor lawrence plays. We're screwed and they took them to overtime at home to be a freshman quarterback who by the way clemson if anybody is hoping for the demise of clemson anytime soon. It's not happening now. The guy's going to be a monster. They just get monsters. They're going to be right there to win the national title again next year. Just like they still are this year. They closed it. Is not going to be dinged for trevor lawrence being out in losing a game on the road and her name in his as they shouldn't honestly i don't care how bad their schedule is. They should not they a frigging monster team. Their defence i know that they gave points. They re or four guys. Are starters her too. So it's it's hard to say their defenses a very good when that happens. You know and it feels after that win as you mentioned if it sets up an acc championship showdown ours'll teams can still the acc catan represented by teams this year should. Yeah those are those are two of the top four teams right now. I don't like go today but day. They're good they look at good football. You're not a great football team compared to clemson clemson as healthy with trevor lawrence. More than anything like they're not going to beat them the second time i'd be shocked. No it the rest of the season. It's it's college football so you say this. Of course it's going to backfire. If feels like we're going to have alabama most likely went out. Yes state most likely went out. They'll get in clemson and notre dame played again. Clemson probably wins the senate both the boss. They are getting in over everybody else. And then you said a one. Four notre dame alabama to three clemson house state which had feels like five times in the last three years. You've just like they play multiple times a year at this point. You know the team that is sitting just outside of it in terms of the and the coaches poll will be interesting to see. What did we get our first college. Football ranking i. Believe should be soon. I want to say maybe next week. Honestly it's it's getting close. The aggies are sitting there at five in the ranking at the moment florida's just ahead of them and number five in the coaches poll. But ain't him beat florida a signature win for them this season. They got crushed by alabama or early in the year since the alabama game. They've looked different offense. The first half of the alabama eventually to look terrible still will. Yeah there were. There weren't bad but like he was just telegraph. Everything you egmont is gonna be their downfall of anything. But i hate. I hate to tell aggie fan though in aggie fan if you wanna come at me. Let's do it. I'll fight with the always. Love it along. I'm a guy that has no skin in the game with anybody because texas tech football is i keep calling teams. Ask us from texas tech. Football is asked so. I'm just an observer of college football in general. Sorry aggies if it comes down to if the scenario plays out the way it is right now. Alabama one notre dame ends up with zero or one loss clemson ends up with one loss and ohio. State is undefeated. You're not getting in over. Those teams. Ohio state has lose them to have a chance or notre dame. Lose some bad team and then you. There's a slight chance that team like cincinnati or byu still gets in over a. I think that and it'd be dumped too because of the conferences and who they played but it's a possibility possibility and also the aggies not playing in the conference championship. Game is going to hurt them. Big time. it's hell. I it's it's not completely held back the sec. Before but this year. It's going to hold the sec. Back because florida. Even though you lost that florida could go beat alabama and then you know that would be a whole different. It's it's just not set up to where you are. Viewed as part of its who. You've beaten this season. Look at the florida women's great but they beat mississippi state whose turn into complete dumpster fire. Arkansas is. They've played better and south. Carolina sucks tennessee. Who they play next week has been okay. Then they play. Oh okay. But they've turned back into tennessee. Ole miss who the hell knows. It's kevin's first year and they could go out and put up a bunch of points. Exact to stop them. Lsu's terrible and you play auburn at the end of the year which they're right at the moment but very real chance. They're not ranked at that point again resume. This year isn't good and said the one win is great. If florida's remains how they are and they plan to convert championship game. They are a great win to have. And i guess you could make the case for notre dame and for for clemson that their resume isn't great either but if each of them beat each other once better win than beating florida yen. It's tough in this college football season because there's no out of conference play. You don't really know what rappers is that great so i think how these i rankings which it does come out. Next tuesday's the first playoff rankings. I think that's gonna give you some insight. And how they view conference games and if one conference is better than the other because at this point you just know teams. We've played each other in in their own conference. Do they play every year. You don't get to have a clemson raynham game like you've had the past years or alabama going to neutral site or how state plane somebody or notre dame playing like usc right. It's impossible to know how these teams are outside their own conference. You're exactly right and it will be interesting to see how that weighs into all of this. The acc stinks like there's a lot of bad teams in every conference in the sec is great conference. But at times it's unclear gets overrated. The east gets slapped by the west every single year when we will get to conference championship game basically but the east has at least two teams this year the west but then we always say like once they get to playing the teams in the west like they get smacked right and georgia's been the first thing that's kind of bucked that trend in a while. So how. I think that at the end of the day i'm expecting the committee. The committee loves guess. What the committee is going to love as well and don't don't get full by that. They think about tv as well and they're going to think about tv this year. Because there's a lost revenue for everybody. Notre dame and clemson is going to draw those two teams will draw better national television wise over the aggies and notre dame. That's the first matchup and clinton bill house. Those are elite matchups that everyone wants to draw well on tv. Don't take don't take it as a shot insane him but it's just the truth like those national brands right now because close. It is so big. And they've been there and people are gonna watch them. And notre dame is notre dame then might be completely overrated program in the big picture but they have such a massive drill. Yeah i think the only negative rating wise that could happen. All those fourteen is. If alvin mcleans the plane the chiefs should begin because people will be tired of it that first round some of those matchups are excite people and they are album. Byu clemson notre dame who who wants to really watch that right and we've already seen them against alabama and they'd most likely you have to be the four seed so that'd be parade like it comes off as that and i again. I love coconut aggies as much as anybody. Because i will give the aggie fan base that they can get as hot and bothered as anybody passionate triggered easily. It's just a fact. It's i'm telling you right now. It's fool's gold that team's not good. They're not i. I agree to a point. But i also don't know who is really that good point with. There's why can't be completely on that tape. There's about four teams. That i think are really good. One that i'll unsure of because they've only played two games at this point. But outside of that i'm just like aren't sure any of those could be the four seed but i don't believe they're going to be any of those top three. How yeah i'm with you there. I'll give the ags this completely. They're not texas because they still don't look great seven one three two one two five. Seven hundred is the number to join us here. On the sean salisbury show our number three starts next shot sauce multi entrenched shos o.'s. Very this is sean salisbury. Show our three of the sean salisbury. Show michael connor josh. See with. You shall day off back tomorrow. You could join us at seven. Three two one. Two five seven ninety on twitter. Mc seven ninety jt. Six nine three four josh and of course the station is at sports talk seven. Were up there on the website. Today on that twitter account you can find some of the things that have been tweeted out there on the show page over its sports seventy dot com including the story on lou. No suing the astros. We'll get back into that here in a couple of segments eight thirty. We'll discuss jeff luna decide trae or excuse me suing the astros. That news story coming out earlier this morning. You can also see sean. Payton busting out some dance moves in the saints locker room last night after beating the hell out of tampa bay buccaneers. They brought their own disk. Our party lights to the tampa bay stadium. Because there's no way those are already in the club astros all over. They asked us to the years. Have been doing that with the strobe lights and all that stuff fog machines they take it on the road with them so obviously the saints brought it with them. Just let's just do that last night in the locker room. They're beaten the hell out of the box. Also there is a video up. We of course here on sports. Talk seven on your home for longhorn football as well. They got a victory over the west virginia mountaineers of the weekend even if it was ugly they won. Congratulations to them doing it but a referee decided to fill up same elders. But yeah you got a little touchy there. didn't he. If saying bra ones enough. That's that's my ass. Yeah nobody needs to touch my. But i mean hell look. I'm a heterosexual male with a loving girlfriend and occasionally she'll just like to mess with me by going and grabbing my but and i get. I squirmed for them. Get your being away from my bud. It reminds me of the key reminder of the key and peele sketch of a slap ass or whatever else. It reminded me of that. It's just like it's a there's a line here but you should come down a little bit. Yeah like he pats it pats pats it and then kind of like lisa's hand on his. But i'm like dude. You're that's that you should be in jail. Let's just be honest. Big twelve taking it too far now. Big twelve arrests have been bad the past. Now they're up there up on players butts and also isn't there's this thing called cova goldenrod. Shouldn't you not be touching the quarterback. I'm just saying. I'm just saying one of the things in the weekend to in college football. We'll talk about the texans here in just a second. Obviously we're talking notre dame taken down clemson. Did you notice that. The notre dame fans stormed the field. Oh wow yet. We're all worried about protocols. And all that. I was thinking about this if that does lead to an outbreak since it's not just the typical being around campus and everything like that would they potentially have to forfeit the next game or do you think is just we. I don't know how that would work. I notre dame general since since that happened basically told these students that you can't leave us out here in lockdown until you get tested truly. You're going to believe it was a administration can't graduate all those people. I doubt is a good question unless they have checkpoints on every street out of the city out. How do it. if someone's now social media i will. I will say i did enjoy what i'm gonna make it political first second. I'm not really actually making political. I did enjoy all the people pointing out tweets. Everybody talking about on social media. How great it was that. Everybody was out in the street celebrating. Joe biden beating donald trump. But at the second that football game people are storming the field. People take the same people were taken to twitter. And tweet how awful. This wasn't how they don't care about covid. You are literally talking about how great it was that people were in the streets celebrating earlier in the day next to each other on top of each other but my god they store football coverage go visit. Oh my god just make yourself look like more bigger bigger than you already look like. It's just the world of social media. Incredible it truly is filled with dumb a lot of hypocrites a lotta hypocrites to say the least definitely to say the least there might be hypocrites at times when it comes to the houston texans in the way they planned. If you miss thatta of course get a victory yesterday over the jacksonville jaguars. They're not two and six on the season schedule ahead looking. It's not the world's most difficult schedule. It's just the honest truth. Do i think this team is suddenly going to turn things around and be a real contender to play in the playoffs. This season which they believe they can still do after the one in six carbon out to and six at cleveland next week then home for the new england patriots thanksgiving day against the detroit. Lions look based on history. Texans beat the lions because they've only played thanksgiving day once against the lines. They beat them. There's no match shove around. This time to get kicked in the nuts by dominic ensue. Though unfortunately but the texans should probably go beat them. So you know what the texans are going to find themselves back at five and six going into the match up against the colts. I'm just calling the right now. And what could also help. As long as they find a way to play the colts looking to get to six and six and they make philip rivers. Tried to tackle you which you did not see that. Yesterday philip rivers there was a turnover least athletic worst tackle. I've seen a wild was bad man that books like a thirty seven year old. Just he's he's going to. He's not going there. They're going to just be killing him over that for a while inside the Inside the locker room in indianapolis as they should he it was. That was one of the worst tackle attempts i've ever seen ever seen. They did lose yesterday. So those matchups will matter by the way the you go. Look at the colts schedule. If we're just talking about the texans elevating themselves in the conference and get into a spot where they can contend for a wild card if they take care of their business and again the likelihood of them doing this over the next three weeks beating these next three teams is not great because the texans cannot stop anybody on the defensive side of the football period end of story. it's what it takes them playing out type of games and having a consistent offense performance throughout the entire game to get these victories. The browns are going to play. Great defense you're probably going to be able to score on them. The same can probably be said for the new england patriots as well because it's not in the same patriots defense this year with all the opt-outs and everything else that's going on the detroit. Lions at times are okay defensive but an at times they're just complete duty so you can probably score on them as well but the colts over the next three weeks. Play this at the titans home for the packers home for the titans before they play the texans they could be staring at being well. Five and what are they now. They could be five and six just like you are going into that match up if you take care of your business than they flame out in their next three games. It's very possible. I said this earlier. I always with the texans always feels like they give you that glimmer of hope and then crush it again. Sometimes that crushing happens in the playoffs but it just feels like that could be five and six years five and six chance to be five hundred close to wild card berth. Right and then they. That's just for some reason. The pit in my stomach gets how it feels. It typically feels like that with this football team as well because they've done that now this season. I think it's hard for me to get that feel exactly. Usually you see you see the talent. You're like me. And they could be so much better. They're just barely coming up short. They're that close to being elite team this year. They're not even close to being a good team or an okay team so it's it is different because of how bad they've been but if previous history tells me anything it's just it's just how they go they give you a slight hope a little bit again and then crushing and like they very well could do that. The i'm not going rule it out because their schedule is favorable terrible. Only one decent team. But i'm not going to bet on it because again you watch them and look jake luton yesterday and i said i'm not even completely sure if i'm saying his name right still lunar love. He threw for three hundred four yards against you. You're not suddenly going to start playing better defensively to where you shut teams down through the air. It's not going to happen. You have no personnel. That stops anybody hargraves consistently gets just i mean you you just kind of pray to god that he falls into interceptions in at this point he got. I believe he got banged up like a heel injury. So if he's one of the corners that you trust right now and you're going to the guy behind him. It doesn't make you feel much better that they're going to improve at all. But i'm still not going to shut down their possibility there. Possibility of getting of creeping towards five hundred not going to bet on it but will not say it's like if i put for chances on it of them getting to five and six for that colts game ten percent and that might be high see i honestly would was going to say twenty percent but to me. That's really but that's me believing that they're the better team at least two of those three games and yet it's hard to even say that this point it really is like i at this moment. I think they will lose their next. Two road games at cleveland and at detroit. Because i think both those teams are going to have a heyday offense wli seven one. Three two five seven hundred. That is the number to join us here. On sean salisbury show. There was an interesting story in college football this weekend. As notre dame was playing clemson before the game pat. Forty of sports illustrated had a story about the clemson tigers. Being really good at something that links to the houston astros. Why is the standard different in different sports. We'll discuss that next here on sports. Talk seven ninety two where john sows very show. Continues in cuma among dean. Kamen show salisbury. Sports talk seven ninety. Mccotter josh with you seven. Three two one two five nine the number to join us. We've talked college football this morning. And the clemson tigers falling to the notre dame over the weekend down goes number. One down. Goes frazier But the college football world shaken up there not too much. We'll see how we mentioned the first playoff rankings will be released next. Tuesday's what you said josh. So that will be intriguing to see what happens but something came out before the game on saturday between those two. That being clinton in notre dame was the story from pat forty of sports illustrated and the title of it is this follow the signs how clemson football has mastered the totally legal art of sign stealing interesting right. I'll just read a couple of paragraphs here to start the story wrong. The whole thing again. It's a little bit longer but it starts off. Is this a month ago. Miami office coordinator rhett last lashley. Is that right. Said they said the quite said the quite part out loud the report out loud he was asked on zoom call about clinton's reputation for stealing an opponent's often signal that are used or relate play calls from the sidelines and he met the question head on clemson is is known well for doing it. Lashley said he went on to both downplay. Any implication that it was either rare or bad the says are there was as bad as the houston astros trash cans scandal. Okay that happens everywhere. Lashley said it's just part of the game. We have to be aware of it but at the same time we have to go play. There's nothing against the rules against stealing signs just like in baseball. If you can still catch onto a signal that guy stealing second you might as well throw him out. Oh my god what so. This whole article goes on to basically talk about how this is something that goes on across college football. How it's gamesmanship how people try to get an edge. There's nothing wrong with it because there's no rules against it and it's look. It's not apples to apples. But it's it's not that far off. Its two sports that are heavily used with signals heavily involved in signals. Because in college while. We don't have headsets in the quarterback helmet so they cannot send in calls. And why wouldn't you try to coated and try to figure it out. And that's exactly what teams do clemson is being sitting here in lauded fort in the sports world is going to just not saying anything about because at the end of the day. Guess what happens inside these sports that get overlooked left and right. There's gamesmanship going on in things being done. That you might view is not proper or against the rules and everything there were no rules against the astros doing it until the freaking memo and that memo was still it wasn't set rules by god. The only difference here is that instead of there being a live feed that then gets related to the dugout. Clemson has so many guys and this is what they're saying that allows them advantages. They have so many people because the program is so successful. They have a guy up in the booth that probably just has been noculars on want just watches them. There's no difference. They communicate it to them in lifetime using tv. Monitor that this and it's gamesmanship. It's it's it's it's just something that goes on and this is known in the world of college football. Why is that different from the until we have. I guess a massive scandal and it's not a scandal like that's what keeps driving me nuts. And i know that again. We're gonna we're gonna die on this hill. It wasn't a scandal is should have never been a scandal because guess what it wasn't that big of a deal it wasn't it was something that literally and it doesn't make it right. It doesn't make it wrong. Every fricken team in that sport was doing it. The entire sport was doing nothing to police it and change it. They were actually making it easier for the teams to do it in certain basically until somebody got pissed about it they did something about it if the ashes had a guy in the bullpen staring. Right down that the catcher the whole game and then went on the bullpen phone and told them what they saw. Energised stayed on the phone and let them know. Hey this is what's going on. That is pretty much what is happening and clemson. The headsets are pre. Go and twenty four seven during a football game. They're not gonna just stop in the middle of the game after they once once they make the adjustments that are going to also see that and let the guys know in real time. Hey this is what this means now. It's the same thing. It's just amazing to me that it's just one story put again you you get to the inside story of how many people inside the game know about it in the the offense coordinator for miami. Bring it up that they know about it and everybody else knows about it but they're all doing it. Look i get very little of any kind of information for anything. Been able to go and travel with the astros not travel with them but we travel on the road in the postseason up until this year with the cova stuff and everything but we were in other. Ballparks we're around people. I can't tell you how many conversations that i've people we've talked to that we talked about this because we were in new york in two thousand nineteen when the story comes up again where they're being asked about whistling and all that stuff and aj hinch downplayed it. And everything. and. I can't say i had three conversations people in the tunnel right after that press conference people that are involved around baseball. I don't know why this is a story. And they're like this is something that goes on everywhere everywhere but it's different between sports and again it just irks me as a. He is a houston sports. Fan in general because you see the coverage ever being talked about like it's no big deal on a different sport but my gut but the astros have have only reason they wanna title apparently and when you think about in being it's goes back to the situation and everything else the. Mlb always tried to be holier than thou. They clutter pearls when someone does something not against the rule. Unwritten rules of baseball or that sh they believe is not great sportsmanship but in reality. Everyone's doing this. Everyone's trying to get the advantage. It's not shocking players. Always do it. That's why steroids became so popular. Because they're like. Hey this guy looks to be doing it. I want to get that advantage to. It's always gonna happen. It's just gonna be what's the next thing. It's why sign stealing his existed forever. I mean we're watching tony larussa. The other day being brought back to manage the white sox where there's been multiple stories and people that have said we had a guy in the clubhouse watching the freaking watching watching the catcher in the eighties and then having them hit a switch on us on a cycle serve yield to signal to the hitter. What was coming like. It's been mike. Scott great houston astros. One of the greatest pitchers in the history of the franchise. There's a quote out there from his time with the mets where he talks about. They sat in centerfield and literally would steal the signs in signal to the hitters. All game long it has gone on forever it is going on in college football and has probably been going on for a long time as well. It's no different anywhere else. But suddenly we use a trash can and it's any it's different morally than it is for other. Get the hell out. Here it's stupid hill. The athletic this morning has another story. That's getting ready to come out against that. They're going to talk about that. Says is your favorite pitcher cheating. There's a ninety nine point nine percent chance a new investigation from sarah. She writes on if mlb will get a grip on the not so secret permanent baseball. Oh my god so suddenly when we find out that the dodgers have a ton of guys using pine tar to get an advantage on the pitching mound which by the way the astros due to are we going to suddenly todd title tainted completely no so get out of here with all your crap. They all do something to get an edge in baseball and football helen basketball. They're doing stuff to do. You want to really peel back the truth on the game of basketball. There's no way there's not a bunch of steroid users in that game. Sorry you don't down the floor as much as they do in. Stay as big jack as they do all season long. It's not possible. It's not so get out of here with your every sport is fear. Everybody's no your favourite damn game that you're watching the college football one of the best games of the season notre dame clemson. Guess what's going on a bunch of cheat in your mind. They're paying players everywhere. That's that's college football scandal. And you know it's happening on campus abidine hidden at all at this point but all my god we we hit we steal one side and go on a can into the world air it down like i said it just feels like baseball is very much our old time. He closed pearls. How dare people do this. Baba no it's it's it's sportsman. Everyone's looking to stick in their sport trying to make their money and they try and get that advantage no matter what it's just I love it. I love it from the standpoint of the fight that goes on between the two sides seven. Three two one two five seventy. That is the number to join us. We will continue some baseball discussion next. Because if you missed it this morning. Astra's being sued. I'll tell you what's going on their next. Let the celebrations start war. Sean salisbury sean south. Marie show the morning myself support. You still sunshine's the song's called. We could steal some sunshine today. And it's not out yet. Sean salisbury show. He's off today. Mcconnell and josh see with you discussing the art of stealing signs in college football where it's completely acceptable. Not that big of a deal but in a different sport. Oh my god so it's so bad man so bad stones. The glass houses where they do. We'll discuss more of that. And the astros being sued here in just a second but your phone calls again always welcome at seven one. Three two one two five so the ninety martin wants to get in here this morning. He'll all martin gentlemen gentlemen how you doing this morning. I have a question about the astros. They lost their first the punishment through all this crap you know they lost their first and second round picks for twenty two warning and twenty twenty one. Okay now. here's my question. Is there any way the astros for the twenty twenty one draft do right now like following appeal or some recourse to maybe get one of those picks back or maybe both for twenty twenty one as anybody knows they have any violent appeal or no recourse. They're they're stuck with the penalties of they have some sort ever members not gonna want to hear that they're laying them off even easier. Do so thank you. Martin appreciate yeah. Nothing's changed in there and by the way we're talking about you know just the edge every sport and this has to do with the clemson stuff. The story from saturday that came from pat forty of sports illustrated and we mentioned the athletic store. That's getting ready to come out. Apparently about pitchers using things and the latest tweet from the athletic is. It's better than steroids. Your favorite pitchers probably cheating but does anyone in the sport. Care to get a grip on the issue and then says new investigation coming. It's better than steroids is a great great quote and it's all the day. Guess what the astros have pitchers that use pine tar one of them specifically was garrett cole and then he left and went to the yankees. Use pine tar there. I'm sure that we're going to go on a crusade of that. Why are we crusading the clemson tigers. This morning for their uses of sign stealing and technology to do so. It's just all hilarious in by the way. So we're talking about the astros and we'll get back to football in the next segment but again seven three to five nineties the number to join us if you missed it early. This morning the Excuse me the houston. Astros are being sued by a former employee. That former employee is jeff. Luneau suing the team over his contract not being paid out upon his firing last year. He filed a lawsuit here in. Houston that basically rips apart the way that he was fired and part rob manfred the whole investigation. Here's just a couple of the lions from the story. Jeff leno this from the los angeles times sued the houston astros for breach of contract on sunday. Alleging astros owner. Jim crane and major league baseball. Commissioner rob manfred negotiated penalties for the science stealing scandal that enabled the team to paint luna as the scapegoat for the organization and fire. It's general manager in order to save more than twenty two million guaranteed salary. Luna's lawsuit uses quotation marks around the word investigation and calls it a negotiated resolution between crane and manfred that enabled the team to keep its world series. Championship went to great lengths to publicly exonerate crane. Scapegoated ludo for a sign stealing scandal. That that he had no knowledge of in played. No part in luna has not found work in baseball since he's filed the suit here in houston in his report. Manford said that luneau denied knowing about the science dealing scandal was suspended him because he's the general injured because the general manager should be aware of activities of his players and his staff. The statement he suit. Alleges is based on selected snippets from the three documents one reference codebreaker under the reference the system and a third the reference. Dark arts Some lower level astros employees were aware of the rules violations or participated in the violations at the direction of others man. For wrote in his report i will defer to the astros on so basically luna was continuing to say that the astros had hurt the lower level. And by the way my serious picking up all this right now telling me re literally picking up. Every single word. That i'm saying and i don't know why that's kinda creepy and weird but the luneau is saying that it was people below him doing this and they are still on the team and didn't get fired didn't get fired and luna wants his twenty two million bucks and i get it and if there's little legal proof and that was one of the interesting things from the interview that he had a chance. Who is he talked about this proof that he has that he didn't have you know they didn't know then they show any of it like he didn't specifically reference any of it so if he if there is no legal proof that he was involved in heavily he could win this easily and he and my guess is that it's going to come to a settlement settlement kept private. We won't get the details on again. I feel like this is mostly just saying. I'm not getting another job. How do i get the money. That i'm never gonna get again. You know at least from the mlb. He won't be involved in correct. And what we're all sitting back is waiting for the bombs to be dropped on really major league baseball and what else it new and how. It was complicit in everything how it didn't police it's sport in general. I don't know forever going to completely get that picture. I'm hopeful like everybody else that we do because we all know like we're talking about the clinton thing with football like you've been talking about with this sport of baseball for years now. It has gone on and bidding rampant problem in baseball. Did nothing to do anything about it. Also why is the penalty. I think that's a a layer of this. That will be interesting. What if brings it up in. That suit is why is our little different than the penalty for the yankees and the red sox were also caught in the exact same. You're doing something else. Why i don't understand it. The penalty should be the same and more people should have had fall africa. And it's it gets more intriguing because an even more egg on the face of baseball because clearly. Nobody cares at the end of the day. We've just witnessed it. The tigers way to thirty minutes after the world series to call. Aj hinch and to hire him as their manager. The boston red sox who had something happened in two thousand eighteen that look you want to believe that that investigation uncovered everything in boston. Go it but it didn't because they didn't have anybody free will to say whatever they want immunity or feel the need to because they didn't have someone like you said a rat that could say the truth and they didn't have to do. He said she said they no one saying anything. And they fire. Alex cora and literally after his suspension is done. Bring him back and hire him again. After firing him to be their manager and the worst action say worse. But the funniest part and like you said it shows. No one really cares after alex. Cora comes out apologizes. Says all. I've learned from my mistakes. Well you see all these people saying oh see. He's learned he's owned to all this ashes did the same thing like it and then they started being there hill. I stood in spring training this year and stood there as these guys apologized to our faces and literally said we're sorry. We acknowledge that we know how bad it was. We know that we should not have done it. We knew we shouldn't have been doing it as it was going on. We're sorry we feel bad for it but all we and then they did acknowledge that all we can do is move on from it. But it's not good enough in today's world of click bait and kraft gets how gets reported and viewed online and on tv and everything. It's a lotta crab and people fall for on social media because go watch the social dilemma. Whatever on netflix you understand. Why the hell. Everybody gets the views that they do. Because everything's curated to you to be the most click beatty type of thing and it's just it's a joke and when you look at how people respond to it. That's the difference of what is made it nationally and why it stuck with ashes and why people view it when people come out and say hey. He learned from his snaking nazar first response. It goes online. The people who click on you know getting usual info from them and start to believe that while everyone when comes to ashes how they started. Oh that wasn't good enough it permeates and then it's like okay. Well if they do this ever go actually look for the apology or listen to it. But if they read it from a headline somewhere they know everything. They know. Exactly how it went. They base their opinion off headline that they read or from their national media they follow or whatever and look. I'm going to to bat for the astros and fight that fight because i love them and i know i know biased right. I am absolutely biased. But i'm not biased. From looking at the way it's covered as well exactly fair but it's been it's been an absolute debacle for how it's covered nationally and it is a damn you can go read Tweeted that you saw immediately. The spin on the alex core being rehired. It was the only choice they make. It was the great hire. It was exactly what they should have done. It should not be any different exactly because a week before the tigers are hiring. Aj hinch there are people in look. It's one there again. they are. Click bait place. I like some of the stuff that they do. I don't like some of the stuff. They do barstool sports. They're very popular now. They're sitting there. Tweet tweeting out or having blog posts on their website cheating. Aj hinch is back in. Baseball's the tigers hire him. Alex cora tired look. I know that they have a lot of boston. People that have started. They started in boston clouds. But you're not actually classic because you're playing a game like we're playing a game two to have attention because everybody in this world has their voice heard and like. I said it's inherent bias that you don't want you. We try to be as addictive when it comes to but when you see the but then republicans the reaction. This is not equal radius. Where they have this. Jack ass david schoenfield. Who's constantly writing about how awful it was and how they cheated. This and how awful was not be able to boo them bro. You cover a sport. That's literally full. This crap urinate and the media the national media. Look again i talk about my small amount. That i know or hear of anything and i've been around in playoff situations where you around national media. They all freaking know. What's going on in the game. They're complicit in as well and their coverage of it is complete crap and it gets back to this story then you have the great story that relates to it in college football this week were clemson is they're basically they're basically. They're getting the why they're being lauded for their ability to steal signs. Yeah it's just how great they're great at it like good for you yet. They can steal signs and relay it and help their team win. Whereas you're all clowns seven one three two one two five seven hundred the number to join us back to some football some texans everything going on in that world as we roll on over the next hour right here on sports talk seven. This is the sean salisbury. Y'all breach so a text to the girl. I used to say and data shows his cutie. Power me i wanna be and this message tissue down then i see seed every a back brown town and the off roundabout smiling witness all around me. But i'm no alan peninsula maiden makes no i know crazy give up out in kansas in my lap. Not looking very show right here on sports talk. Seven hundred now feel are good. This song feels good. Everything feels good this morning. The texans won yesterday. And i just saw Non sports note of the morning apparently pfizer. Has i vaccine. That is ninety percent effective in. It is getting ready to come out soon. So that's back. I will say that as a man that has bought in the stock market during the during the pandemic when everything crashed. I've getting rich today bitches. Not really but i mean. I made a little bit of money. I feel good right now. I'm rolling baby these days. You mentioned the song to you. I truly would not have a problem with this being like the national anthem. Because it's is the best rap song of the last twenty years. It is dammed. Good damn good even call it. A wrap is just a good song. I just want to get up and take my shirt off. Twist around like a helicopter this morning. Got that like i said. We got texans winning. You know there's more interesting. Things world assigned stealing. There's also a big week of football coming up some really good matchups. This next week. I go back and look at that again. Unless you alabama michigan wisconsin. Good names match angry michigan's football they get beat by miss miss because i'm thinking. Msu michigan state in michigan state. Lose this weekend. They were losing. They lost michigan. Indiana michigan state this past week and i'm not sure they were losing at one point during the day. But you. indiana indiana is. Indiana is a top ten school in the country. Football right now. They're undefeated there. Were like thirteen coming into the game. Something like that and they were a road under a home underdog against michigan. That was my pick on friday for one of the point spreads that know michigan forty nine hundred seven by the way michigan state did to iowa forty nine seven after they beat michigan. So if you're michigan fan you're feeling really really bad today. Like and that's going to ramp up the jim harbaugh leaving stuff. It started to be tossed around a little bit. I do wonder if jim hardball does decide that it's time to leave and the nfl is where he wants to end to end up again. Don't say it. I mean should the texans even interviewing don't put that evil on us it's just like the texas fans who are trying to say. Oh tom herman's texas. Don't put that as a texas fan. Put tom. herman tax people trying to say. Hey maybe tom. Herman could go to texas. I don't know if it was legitimately. Hey it'd be a good fit but it's mostly just texas fans when he was struggling a couple weeks ago for the last two pretty good wins for them. We're trying to get him out of austin eight texas. No both showed up. I don't wanna either one well. That one's funny the harbaugh one. I could see being a possibility. Because look he's i think he's. He's gone poorly over the last couple of years. Not it's not like this year's going very poorly. He hasn't been horrible michigan but he hasn't been good he. He's lived up to expectations. There's they're going to be a national title nine fourteen and three they win games but they're not lashing they haven't they haven't been ohio state they have an elevated. They've had some really good seasons they'd been close but they haven't been like he was expected to come there and get them playing for national titles. Exactly beating ohio state and it has not happened. They were supposed to be on the level. How stay in competing with them. Not still there little brother. The the the fact is for him. He's a different guy rubs people the wrong way. He's built dishes. I will say his players in the nfl level. Like how many times have you heard players really going. Rip the hell out. There's been a few but it's been very like there's been more guys that have stood up for the not and he was great at the nfl level until last year. We went eight eight because his message clearly worn out. It was time to go like. That's my issue if you're making if you're making the harbaugh higher if you entertain that possibility because i do think that it's very really. He's going to try and put feelers out to get himself back to the nfl because he knows that it's time it's taking and michigan. Now you can listen to some people that tell you that. It's actually not taking because money headaches for the school and they're paying him a lot and it's a covert year where there's not revenues and they're not going to suddenly pivot on wanting to pay a huge buyout. Letting him go i get like. I don't think there's going to be as many college football coaches fired as we expect is. We typically get jackson that standpoint. that teams are schools. Can't afford it in the nfl. They're talking about all we're making we're gonna have like three billion dollars in losses. Ask still make five six billion bucks. You'll be fine. you'll be completely fine. So i think coaches will still get locked off the nfl level. Clearly the texans have a huge opening that even with all the all the worries that we have for them. Moving forward that you know. How appealing of job is this per se. It's it's still going to have a ton of people clamoring for it. And look if jim harbaugh is looking to get back to the nfl like all the reports are saying now that he actually is. He's going to be interested in this job. And i don't think he'd be a complete mess with the shawn watson offense but i have look if if he was the higher. I would not be excited one bit but would you. Here's the question. Would it be more exciting to hire jim. Harbaugh over josh mcdaniels which one would get your more jazzed up on. Doesn't either them move the needle for you just more than anything pissed. I think that'd be more pissing anything. I would take horrible over daniels. I think i think a lotta people around houston just for the simple fact. That mcdaniels is another belichick coaching training. I think texas fans in general are done with all the patriots. People coming here. It's never really worked out the best. Let's do something new. i'm with you. I want nothing to do with the tree anymore. Period in by the way here's real quick. Sorry just going off side note in the nfl. Big news again for a player. If you're like me hasn't been fantasy football great heading back yesterday. Even though i'm still going to lose. Because matt thomas team what stupid and i hate fantasy football. I've had great weeks. And i keep getting my. I beat you wanna terrible week. Though by the way josh christian mccaffrey returns yesterday for the panthers. Apparently could miss more time according to you n wrapped port with a shoulder injury. He's having test today but his status is very much in doubt with the first pick. He put like four games greatness. Four days but my guys screw bringing fantasy football season. I'm dumb fantasy football finished. I'm serious quitting after this year. I'm quitting. I've had for like nine running backs get hurt this year. It's been nothing but that but the horrible thing. I think it will be intriguing to watch because there's not like he wants back in the nfl. He's going to get an interview. There's no way he doesn't. But if jackie should be truly is than the power over there harbaugh is not a candidate. Because you know what harbaugh do is come in and have a power struggle with them. Yeah i think if you're a texas fan that three the aisa excites you more than anybody be enemy brady in sala from the forty niners saw as the defence guide offense other. Those are the top three that in my opinion altobelli exciting. But i think i should say okay. That makes sense. Everyone else is just like i. I'm not sure. Do i really want You know to me. I only want be enemy or joe brady and i'll tell you why i want. Joe brady over anybody next right here on sports. Talk seven ninety. F- bill johnson longtime friend. Very this is the sean salisbury. Show final hour of the show. Michael connor josh. See with you sean. With the day off you can join us at one. Three two one. Two five seven ninety the texans with the victory yesterday over the jags to move to two and six on the season. It's unfortunate. they can't play the jacksonville. Jaguars every single week of the year. It really is. That'd make a playoff team for sure. If i could get one wish in life. I would consider it that the texans just play the jags week. They could go sixteen in over year. They'd probably go like fourteen to give him a couple just for the hell of but you know way. Blow one over two of them. Look jacksonville finds their way to get in the first pick in the draft trevor lawrence. Then i'll reconsider my or reconsider my stance there. But i don't think the jets are going to allow the jet jags to get the first pick in the draft. Noggin allow team to stink more than they're going to stay here so bad. And you know what. Who's the last sixteen team. We have was at the brand. The go y'all the browns. And then before that it was the lions those i believe so i believe in the huge one of the hugh jackson years or was interim one year maybe or see now if you look at a book last oh and sixteen team. We've been discussing the victory though over the jags. we've also discussed. Jj watt apparently still going to be on the trade market that according to jason lockenfora. That was our big. Jj watt. be with the houston texans next season because lockenfora said on sunday before yesterday's game that The texans will absolutely shop. We'll trade him after this season because he does not want to play for them anymore because they're a losing football team and there's no real end in sight for that did you find it. Yeah it was the browns they went. Oh and sixteen. The year before they went one in fifteen so hugh jackson was one in thirty one after two seasons job kept his job. Long rentable incredible. But i mean there's no point in multiple coaches as you're going to suck that bad you might as well just pay the one the texans though again they they win yesterday and it is what it is you get the victory you might as well get the victories like i mentioned and we talked about the astros being sued by jeff luneau as well and we bring up the last segment though the coaching search will continue in the names will continue to be as we move further into this season. We're now at the halfway point. Real quick you wanna give a grates on the somebody did bring a good point real quick. I'm getting sidetracked. Dennis brought up a good point on twitter. Would you wish that the texans play the jaguars every single day. Like if you had imagine you got to read the thing. And he comes out and gives you one wish and it can only be houston sports related. Wish you can't say because it look if you get a genie the first thing that you're gonna give me a billion dollars like you never gonna give me ten unlimited. You're not gonna worry about sports. As much as i think i'll get enough money to go buy one of the teams if i had had the But you can only do something. That's for one of your teams. Would you wish that the texans play the jaguars every game. Or that the astros play the mariners. That's a good one. Because the astros beat the hell out of the mariners left and right do we also take into account that they're going to add more players through the draft and things like that or we just saying they're stuck with these teams from here until you're playing the game of projecting because both franchises are asked. Yeah haven't been to the postseason. Says two thousand one yeah. The jaguars are horrible. They will help they've still been doing. Afc championship game over the last few years. I think i go jags. Just because in general i don't believe in their front office or anything. Those guys are really do often baseball like the mariners eventually going to look into a team. That's gonna that's gonna be more difficult than me. You see some of the guys that have at least they have some talent with the jags. I mean sure they have a little bit of talent but is there one guy that's like. Oh that's a future like a potential. Mvp candidate not really that but that is a one hell of a question. Which one would you prefer if you had the magic genie to grant your your one of your teams here in houston one wish. What would it be if you wanna give us one seven three two one two five to the ninety i would take that scenario. I'd probably take the jags though to just. Because i also want the astros to be able to play better teams to get battle tested a little bit. Because i have more faith than being better than the texans at this point. But we've been talking about the coaches and maybe that's what you want. Your magic genie to do is who you would want them to be competent coach. The next coach of the houston texans. And it's something that's going to ramp up now that we've hit the halfway point of the season and we'll start getting some some rumors here and there about who could be interviewing. We brought up the gym thing in michigan. Because he's apparently putting out feelers that he's ready to make the leap back to the nfl. I always thought that it was weird that he went to college in the first place. Yes yeah i didn't make much sense. I just stay in the pros. I thought that he probably only wanted to stay in. The froze was my thing too. I didn't really expect him to be. I want to jump back to college. Football and i never felt that going back. I know it's his alma mater. That going back to michigan was completely his thing like you. Just listen to him talk in the way that he worked like it felt like the. Nfl has where he wanted to be. I think college just because he realized that tattoo. Yeah and i think the players said they were out there. He wears as welcome their he felt. Like hey these are going to rotate out four years. These guys aren't going to be here forever and the pros. Those guys have a little more power than the college athletes have. So i don't re- i could be just fired at any point. Someone doesn't like me. I truly think that's the only reason he went back to college. I'm with you. I think that at the time he didn't have the amount of suitors he expected to at the nfl level when that ended there in san francisco and so he went back to a spot that was going to pay him a ton of money where he had all the control and look. It's easier to have that type of personality. I think at the college level where these are younger. More like it's it's just easier. You guys like saving who are also considered hard. Yeah tough guys. Aren't this nicest player-friendly whatever you can do. A hardball does be that military style guy at work in. Nfl guys get. I'm being paid too much money for. Do think it's unfair that we we completely expect those kind of guys. Never change. like coaches can change. I think now look. We have enough evidence. Since he's left the forty niners for horrible. That has not changed as much but like to expect to coach not to evolve at all. I think sometimes silly like we just we get built into these. These takes on people and they don't change. Yeah so again. Replay the little game of if it came down to horrible versus mcdaniels. Which way would you wanna go be pissed. We've had enough new england here in. Houston i swear to god cabinet near this message can get to you if you hire somebody else to the new england tree to you like. You're you're pushing people away so it could end up working out. We have egg on our face and we have to apologize if that happens. Fine so be it. I will always gladly say. I was an idiot for something that i thought was not good. I want to be wrong when when i'm mad about a houston team. I want them to prove me wrong. Every like right now with the houston rockets. I feel that. I took me a little bit longer than other people. I feel that they've reached their peak that they've hit it. They're not getting past where they are. Now i pray to god i'm wrong. I think that the houston texans will not contend for a super bowl for another five years and i hope i'm completely wrong for that too so if mcdaniels were to be the choice seer and he comes here and works out. I'll be hopeful that i'm wrong just like i was hopeful that bill. O'brien still prove me wrong. But we don't need that again and i mean you look at what new england looks like without tom. Brady and you start to question. If it was the blueprint of the entire franchise or was partly in. It is going to be partly but mostly having one of the best quarterbacks if not the best quarterback of all time for twenty years yeah so the question is where's this chase going to go and we bring out the hard ball we bring up the mcdaniels thing. We'd the. It's the other names that the texans should have more intrigued to an end to the other names of the ones that would actually have the fans get on board and have more. Hope i think the balls in the mcdaniels conscious. It's hard to get excited about it. Yeah i'll go and stayed at right now. I want first of all be enemy to be the head. Texans next head coach. That is if i had my choice. He he is deserving of his shot to do it. He's apparently has a big voice. In what the chiefs do offensively. And he's learned from one of the best coaches to ever do it. In andy reid. I would like the tech because he's been in the nfl mid established for a good long while to played. I have good trust that. He is going to do. Good things for this texans team if he gets it number two for me right now because right now my guess is that the texans actually do not get airbnb and it's not even necessarily because they don't attempt to. I think he's going to take a different job before the texans job you'll find another place that has a good quarterback of more assets that he can build with most likely call me. The jets ended up with the first pick. I think he'll take the jets job i do. The leash will be long for him there because for the first time in a while they're getting the head coaching higher right. At least what it feels like. I don't think that it's a better organization to go to. I think they both have massive massive issues. But i would not fault him one bit for saying i'd rather take the jets job over the text job because again the avenue for the texans getting the necessary roster is so difficult more difficult than what the jets have going on right now now. Their roster is complete and total hot dumpster juice. Garbage eight is awful. So maybe it's about the same. Maybe i'm viewing it too. Optimistic would just. Because they're getting the first pick. But i would not blame him one bit. The next big joe brady and people are going to look at that name and say he's what he's like my age. I'm serious. I think he might be. I think he and i may have been born in the same year. I got one. He's thirty year. Was he born in one thousand nine hundred and nine so he was born the year before i was. I can't imagine being where. I met my life like i just turned thirty in september and having that responsibility he was he was. Lsu offense coordinator at your age right. I can't imagine that and the dude went in had like title offensive coordinating seasons. He's only been coaching since two thousand thirteen. Like i can still remember. What two thousand thirteen. I point out of high school for four years of high school for five and he was coaching in college football but clearly the guy is awesome. We've seen it with what he's done with teddy bridgewater in the in the panthers this year. They've they've not had christian mccaffrey and you know they lose a tight one yesterday with the cat but they've been in every game in being in been one game you didn't think they should they look they'll go. You're going to be a team. That was terrible. They've had mike davis look good. When mccaffrey's out robby anderson look like he's a top five wide like something about that system in just works. People will say this guy has been in the nfl coach for this is his third year. He was two years of the saints as an offensive. Assistant didn't have like a title. He's been a linebacker coach at william and mary. Two years was a graduate assistant at penn state. Is that under under bill. O'brien muse either. Brian's last year there franklin look at bill. O'brien bill. O'brien came here in two thousand. Yeah it was bill. Brown was gone as bill. O'brien first year. But the texans when he was here and then he was two years the saints offense assistant then was the even the offense coordinator technically but he called the place like his title was passing game coordinator correct lsu but he was calling place and then he's with the the core the panthers. Now's the offense coordinator. People are terrified of a thirty one year old and it might not be the deal situation for him to get it because the team is not has does not have the talent built. It feels like to make the jump but if you are sold this guy is the next show. Mcveigh young bright. Mind the game that is going to make offense and you have to lean offense at this point. I don't want anything to do with the defensive coach. I'm sorry i just don't hire. There's nothing wrong with taking that chance. There's nowhere to this team cannot get any worse than it already is. I think with the brady. It's kind of in this analogy. Could be blown up. Very quick is just off the top of my head. I think he's kind of like the shawn watson thing where previous history would tell you. Oh this never really works out blah blah blah. But when a guy is successful at every seeing the level believe that don't believe what he doesn't have enough for track record. He's too young. Believe what's in front of your face. And what's in front of your face is that this is one of the best play playcallers at any level in the game of football and put a great staff around him and let's go. He comes in and he needs to take the. Sean mcveigh example. When he was with the ramming got higher by the rams put away phillips river on the staff. That's been a head coach. It's been around and have them basically do all the things that he doesn't need to do as a first time. Head coach exact. Let the let liquor guy joe brady. Focus on the one thing. He's good at and then over time given more responsibilities. Let some other previous head coach. Teach them in. Do those things these first couple of years until he gets comfortable to do more. And that's why the texans head. Coaching search should be down to two guys. It's beyond him. And i would have zero issue of ends up. Joe brady said one three to five seven hundred zero number to join us here on the shot salisbury. Show your thoughts on that. Who do you want as we continue to move on into the season as the texans and next head coach. We continue that discussion. Next sean salisbury show continues now. You know shaw. Salzburg shows for talks. Said josh see you. You want the texans next head coach because that is what this season's about at this point even if they get a twenty seven twenty five win yesterday to and six. We're worried about what is next. A lot written about jack easterby and his influence in his path to get here still have massive questions on his influence in this hiring process. It should be a big fat. None and pray to god that it doesn't but guess what it is absolutely a thing he's going to be involved in this. Hire anybody with a brain knows that you guys wanted to weigh in at seven three two one. Two five seven ninety. Let's get to j b next. What's up jay be. Hey good morning guys. I think the choice between brady and the enemy is fantastic. I would love to have either one. I would choose brady overby enemy but neither one. Nobody knows how they're going to actually turn out. So i think those are two home runs for the organization. Like i said i'd take brady over being me but i'd be super happy with either one. What i think is going to happen as neither one comes here. Because texans don't have a history of making good decision. No you're you're absolutely right. Being your line of thinking is the way to go. Thank you for the phone call. Unfortunately the track record isn't great for the texans making good decisions. They have this weird enter fighting. That always goes on where it's a power struggle and somebody's power wheels over how they make hires or whatever. The first time. I felt like they kind of got away from that was win. O'brien was actually hired. But since then it's been nothing. But that because o'brien wasn't necessarily i think a rick smith guy wasn't. It was more of bob. The time taking over in making decision on the on the coaching staff because the franchise felt like a needed to go in a different direction from the kubiak air. At the time. I was excited and hopeful. Everybody else was it. Felt like the right hire because he was such a hot name. And you're right. These names that are going to be out there. We have no idea to know how it's going to go for joe brady for airbnb specifically but to me. Those are the only two choices. If i'm running the team. That's it like there might be if it's not as long as it's not some sort of retread new england connection whatever that's my number one thing i don't want that i don't want to be sitting here. Having to talk about we brought up. Jim harbaugh him being the head coach. I don't want that. I'm not going to be pissed. But i'm not going to be excited. Same goes for josh mcdaniels. I think he's innovative. I think he's a good offensive play caller. I think he's done a lot of great things in the league. But i know that he's worked bill check forever and he's been a head coach a long time ago in the nfl when he was. He was part of the job where he was too. He was too young in the game and he tried but his problem was he tried to check immediately and it turned into a complete disaster from the jump. But this is also a guy had basically two other jobs in the bag in indianapolis and green bay read to the job indianapolis and sound like he. The job in green bay was his to have and he said no and it went to floor something. That's why wouldn't even be interested in going down that road and again you do that. Then everybody's caserio is what i'm done with that. I don't need it bob. Mcnair had this fascination with the new england patriots and needing to beat them in d. into by being them it was silly it always was always will be the. The team is great. They're great at what they do. You cannot duplicate period and you don't have the reason why they were more than half the reason why they're are great. They had the frigging greatest quarterback in the history of the game. I need to go down that road anymore and eat fresh. You may daniels because he was too young which obviously it was a big factor in you know how he dealt with things. As head coach. He was too hot headed. He was also given tibo and he was. I don't want to say four dollar man what he's talking about first year. Baby call orden tim. Tebow was never agree. Nfl quarterback in while he won games he was tied to him pretty much and he never he never had the brady or eating where close to eight legit. Nfl pro quarterback on his team so there is a chance he could still be a good offense coordinator but anytime he has had the greatest quarterback of all time. It's been just me and you're right. It's been a and that is the one thing that any anybody that gets. This job is going to have is that. They're coming into a situation as the quarterback that's important. I'm not going to be thrilled if it gets to. The josh mcdaniels thing and the josh mcdaniels rumors will ramp up and they will be a real thing. I'm hopeful that it doesn't become a thing in forgets if it comes down to who you want be enemy or brady. I'm going to be superpower about either one of them. I'm tell you this right now. Some people will be pissed like say they chose brady overby enemy. Somebody would be pissed. I won't be. Yeah and i get what people really want enemy but in its same thing brady. I'm not one hundred percent sold either. One's going to be the great greatest next head coach or anything like that. But i i'm happy with either one and i can understand why some people prefer one more than the other but it's you know you're never going to know how it goes until you have asked yourself this. Do you want to go down. The route of having a retread or coach coaches been around and has a track record. Whatever it is you could end up like the dallas cowboys this year. A guy that i thought was a great in mike mccarthy for them given their situation and there's been nothing about it's been good. He is clearly at least public from the public view. Not changed the way. He was his last couple of years in green bay that led to his downturn. There i mean. I don't want to go down that path period. Let's grab one more before next time out it is. Danny what's up danny. Hey you doing fine guys. I'm half half joking. When i say this but who who. I like to see coach. Attacking technical herm edwards. I heard member here in watching an interview with him. One time and i thought to myself. Why isn't this guy president. He what he would come in here and he would kick you know what and take names shami. We've thank you for the phone. We've had that phone call recently about her thank you. He wasn't good in the nfl. He's a good motivator. But i just don't know how good of a head coach would be at this point. He had one two three four winning seasons the playoffs. Four times. One playoff to playoff games and at arizona state he's been fifteen twelve and he's nine and ten and conference plays now sixty six years old and they blew a game against thirteen with four minutes to go that they had. They had their season set to boom from the jump and that was brutal. The way that thing into the other day herm edwards will not be a candidate for good zero percent. Chance i mean hell and things retha the state years. It's still bulls mind and got the job. This i mean he only got it. Because i think it was his former agent this now the there i think he's he's. He's a great motivator he. He's not a candidate another name. We haven't mentioned they look. They look like crap last night. Getting some run for byron left. Which i've heard that as well look he wouldn't be my choice of a brady. Your enemy not gonna be mad about it though because everything you read about him and everything that i've i've heard from him. Sounds like gets it. Yeah it sounds like arians offense. But he's the one who decides the plays and is a big factor in the play calling. So i can get it but it to be there. He's a tear be candid. Yes i agree. Those guys you'd hope and maybe maybe that's unfair to him being a tier be. Yeah we don't know. Joe brady literally again had one years in office coordinator. Yeah we're namer by the hot name and that is a hot name. All i know is that if they take a higher that is more towards any of those three guys versus the the two guys who've mentioned this morning happy about it seven one three two one two five seven hundred is the phone number if you wanna weigh in on that of the names. We've been throwing around thirty minutes to go. We have some body to remember as well this morning. Right here on sports stocks. Ninety and without sean salisbury show continued. One two three snoop doggy. Dogg and dr drake is ready to make natured. So back on up cook. Who will be the saxons next head coach together. We don't know we can guess about eight seven one three two one two five seventy connor josh. See with you here on the such ships on the morning three hours i'm saying sawn instead of sean and hain i've been up since three forty five this morning because i just woke up and could not go back to bed so i've been here like four and four fifteen or whatever and yeah that's we're in the morning. I'm also tired of the texans being the texans. i want them to get victories. We're going to remember somebody in sports here in just a second. But let's get to ryan up next up brian. Hey how's it going man. So i was sitting here listening to you all and thinking about Old head coaches and one. That's retired that I always liked. He used to coach the The colts was tony. Dungy wouldn't share if you think. Maybe they could try to get him to come out of retirement or if it would be a good fit you see. I don't think he's even interested in coaching again. He would've taken interviews long ago. He hasn't taken them forever. Yeah i think a jon gruden contract even think about in out. He's making so much money doing everything else. And i think he enjoys what he does that. He's not going to. he's sixty five now. Yeah that'd be no for us. They're begging thank you ryan appreciate it. I mean i never going to be managed to go down that route. He was a great head coach and knows a lot. I met him in new orleans the year before the super bowl of Baltimore and san francisco. Jim hart the harbaugh brothers were coaching amendment mothers. Believe eaten down there and Greg cook call them over because he was walking through and here remember greg and we talked to him real quick and he was very nice and I just don't think that he's he hasn't been a coach in the nfl. Since two thousand and eight for a reason more than anything because he probably doesn't want to be a coach anymore. Let's get to brad up next. What's up brad. I've got an idea for card's kinda young paul brand real quick before you get to your head coach. You call the time. This is brad miami for anybody that listened to you still in miami first of all. Well technically i'm in hollywood florida okay taxes next year. That's probably that's smart florida's Interesting place how are you. Are you reeling. I've been meaning to ask you. Because i haven't heard from you. How are you doing when the astros gave up for your favorite minor league pitcher. He's no longer with the organization. It's all good. He's going to catch on with somebody else and they do to some of the other astro players. They'll turn out like a steady nice. He's to somebody else's fasel. you'll say. Okay i watched him in spring training. I wouldn't talk about it. I m close. I mean i. I was thinking he's gotta make the league arm. I don't know what the in the big leagues. So there's that you know saw the new ones they growing up this year. So you never know. I mean maybe. It was a numbers game. Maybe i i don't have any clue. Nobody ever asked why they never thought him up. I mean because he wasn't very good but what was what was your take on the texas head coach. I was watching the game couple of weeks of la rams and they were talking about. Don shula's grandson that Mcvay the coach for the rams. That is unbelievable. He's the linebackers coach out. There guy defensive but he's like he's like unbelievable. He sleeps dreams each football all the time. He's gonna be a great one one day. Just kinda young. He just kinda young. But it's a shoe so you never know. I know. some of the other shoe is more out. Well but grandpa worked out real. Well so yeah i mean. That's that's definitely name. I think thank you brad. This probably going to get some mentioned in his time moves on. He's in his fourth season with the rams. He is a total of six years as a defensive coach and You know. I i think the league is going toward obviously. It's it's an offense league and it's hard for me to get excited about possible. Defensive hires unless they're hiring a great offense coordinator. The problem with that is when you hire great offense coordinator if you're a defensive coach you're going to replace it if you have success quickly because we're going to do like matt rule higher joe brady matt. Rhule's on offense coach but matt rule is going to have to replace him. You know because team's going to hire him as a head coach that that's my. That's wiling towards offense. You go get your guy and you pretty to god. It works out. Yeah and i mean. I know His uncle it's not him. It's unfair to do it. But as of alabama fan. Mike sure it was just he was he was average at best. How one decent year at those full of Probation stuff right exactly. So it's hard to say if he would have been much better but he was he didn't excite me much against alkyl is not him. They may have totally different philosophies. Only gave them a football. But the shula name outside of the one of the greatest coaches of all time. I don't think i would be super excited just having actual as head coach. Nah i mean it's like get that standpoint again. I more than anything. I go to not loving defensive type of fires as my head coach just because again i'd rather find the great offense of mine and give michelle a shot to be the head coach and put a bit. Put the great staff around him and let him grow into the role as you. Okay i mean you want to be qualified as a head coach from the jump and be able to handle all the things that come with it but at some point to take that risk. And i'd rather take that risk on a young guy if it is a joe. Brady that the texans did go down that path with. Let's get to kurt up next. Hey how's it going guys good. Hey man look. I'll tell you guys. Listen to him all the time. Everybody listens to them all the time. But coast collar man And and and tony romo as office coordinator man. I think them guys work together now. So i believe you'd be perfect. I mean cower. Hasn't coach for a long time. I think for reasons. We'll just like tony dungee call. Thank you for the phone call. I think that. I don't know why the name always comes up happens almost every year. I in general ideas. Not terrible w i think are could be a good head coach but at this tony romo's not leaving his job. That pays him seventeen million dollars a year. Call football games so often these normally couple million you know he's never coached. It's a it's not terrible ideas and names would be cool everything. It's just you're going to have to pay them a ridiculous amount of money just for them you can consider it and even when they start considering it do they really wanna leave their nice tv gig to go. Deal with the stresses of being a nfl coach again. Cowards probably mid sixties dungy or maybe mid fifties romo highs pay broadcasts on the world gets golf's on on his free time when he wants. It's just it's hard to see them leaving their nice gig for something. That's as good chance. That may be paying them less. You know at least for room. Oh yes i think we have to quit looking for the outside the box type of things that we keep doing with these phone calls and i'm not trying to thank you for calling your call and give your your suggestion against seven one. Three two one two five hundred ninety s completely. You're right to do it. I know we have the questions on certain age like we have this fascination with guys that had been in the league have been around for a long time and had success right but they've also not coached forever like grundig comeback. We always knew the gruden's coming back. That was one that we knew was going to happen. That guy was never going to stay with forever and he got the godfather deal that took. He would have stayed in the booth longer if he didn't get that godfather type deal but he knew that the fascination with him for some people is never going to go away. Cowards not coach since two thousand six exactly the act. There's also a chance that the game has passed some of these guys by once they get into it a lot of it's different than when they were coaching before. And there's not an incentive for some of these guys to go out there and take these jobs anymore like there's a reason why they don't get any the only thing missing here for the trifecta of the former coaches to get a job phone calls. Is somebody calling and asking for jimmy johnson to be the texans next head coach. That's the only thing we're missing. Now you've got to go to the guys that are in the game right now and that's about it again like i said it's the idea is in terrible. The of it is zero is absolutely that seven three two one two five seven hundred more. Your phone calls next those. You want to talk texans next head coach. Stay right there. We'll get to you in the final segment. Walsum give the goodbye in a sports related. Goodbye to somebody that the world loss yesterday. It is a shot salisbury. Show right here sports. Talk seven hundred your back. This is the sean salisbury. Show picture this to your lips. I am sick. I will punch a baby dare get us take make mud final. Few minutes here on for socks. Seventy in the trenches up next chris. Gordon andy kalou will be there for that. Tom's be reality matt. Thomas show twelve three the a team with adam wexler clinton or ace and gary as we liked to call him to an extent they will be up from three to six and then of course the nightcap later on oh you can take in for houston sports right here on sports. Talk seven hundred. We've been doing some great suggestions from you. All on the phone at seven one three two one two five nine on who. The next head coach should be for the texans who've had phone call for bill cower. Tony dungy tony. Romo herm edwards. Matt thomas text in a few minutes ago and said you should suggest lead courses the head coach with kirk herbstreit. Assoc- i'm in for that. But i will go one better. I'm saying let free back the health. Spit on yourself. Spit on myself. They're honest to god lou holtz. I know it's not gonna happen. There's no chance if he was the head coach of a team i light. I don't think i'd watch anything of that team until he was gone. Just because it's not bad guy but his voice is just fishless brutal whole like talking to a horse yeah. That's that's where we get on phone. I tweeted it a couple of minutes ago at amc ninety. It's made me again. I love you guys calling. And i want to discussion with you. The phone calls for those names that are brought up to believe that jackie's probably more qualified to make a head coaching decision. That we believe us. Because there's a lot of people that are qualified to make decision out there in those phone calls for pure evidence of that we do need to say goodbye to somebody in the world because it kind of took everybody knew it was coming in at some point because well it's coming for all of us but it was coming for this guy. Alex trebek's died yesterday. The host of jeopardy. I love jeopardy. Who doesn't love jeopardy. I've ever been great at it. Because it's a bunch of stuff that i don't know because i'm not sitting around reading this stuff. I watched the twenty twenty special on him last night and it did actually made me think more and learn other things other than sports like because he just literally never stopped doing like he seemed like an awesome guy. But let's say goodbye real quick with a great sports category from alex trebek's in jeopardy and we're gonna pause it after each clue and see if we can get them. I go ahead josh. Football two hundred your choice. Do or don't name this play in which the quarterback runs the ball and can choose to pitch it to another back. That would be an option. An option play. That was not answering by the way that video post football four hundred i can tell you guys are big football fan tom. Landry perfected the shotgun formation with this team would be the dallas cowboys. Scott dallas cowboys. I think we should go to commercial ryan taking on the six hundred okay by signaling for one of these a returner can real in a kick without fear of getting tackled. That'd be fair catch. These are all very easy. so far. Fair catch to clues left ryan. I really hope. Hundred are simultaneous violations by the offense and defense that cancel each other out it'll be offsetting. They called offsetting penalty. Let's look at the thousand dollar clue just for the fun of it. Me as minneapolis as us. Bank stadium prepares to host super bowl. Fifty two. i'm looking at the ring of honor with names from this defensive line. The took the vikings to four super bowls. It'd be the purple people eaters. If you guys ring in and get this one will die. Who are the purple people eaters. We're going to take a break. I have to talk to that. He did have talked to them. And the The recent clips of him rapping. We're always one of my favorite things because no one on jeopardy really no sports but then there's the one guy he's sometimes. Does it just racks up. The cash super easy would be this lonely place that i could do anything i use great host. He was fantastic at it. And i like. I said i would watch jeopardy. There were some categories. That i would do okay at a lot of them that i just over my head. I just watched to watch. But he was funny. he was great at it worked. I think he was a great example. Of what you should be an in your life just from the outside looking at it and you know it's it's a loss for the world is loss for the ability to watch something that was on in the middle of the day that you love so that sucked to hear that news. That alex trebek's pass yesterday. You're right though the the sports ones you could really rack it up if you knew i would do when they came out with for a while sports jeopardy. The dan patrick was hosting. Yeah i kill at it. I mean that's if people if you've listened to us here on the station. I will give myself this me and me and sports trivia. We do very well i. It's it's strictly. Because i spent my entire childhood reading a bunch of stuff that no child the typically read and i just have this weird thing for sitting around and looking at stats all the time. Yes he i'm a. I was more leave on. You know sportscenter things like that. So from two thousand and five on or two thousand three on in that range. I know a good amount but beforehand. I'm probably not as good as you but stuff purple simple. Those were all the purple people. Eaters is hard non-sports people. There's nothing the tom landry for. Non-sport person. I'll give it to this difficult like if you don't watch sports you're not to know but if you've watched sports at all you know who thom luxury isn't who the hell a coach for the damn hat. Exactly i mean would you if you know anything about dallas cowboys. If you're in my family you have an uncle that lives in arlington. And they've lived in arlington my entire life. He hates jerry jones and still to this day. Every time we have a holiday he will bring up the fact that tom landry was fired by jerry jones on the golf course i swear to god never stops even though jimmy johnson was pretty successful coach. He's still nope. Oh he hates jerry jones. He loves jimmy. Johnson hates jerry jones. But also i will. I will add them. Because i know he's not listening of arlington. I don't think he eli. Listen a little bit to us in the mornings. But i don't think he is anymore back when the stadium opened he's retired. He's been at retirement age for awhile. My is just like she. My aunt works at home. A lot has for years like she does some stuff where she's out a little bit but he was driving my aunt nuts and she said you have to get a part time job and she made him go to cowboy stadium stadium now and get a part time job in the stadium so on sundays. He worked the elevators for the suites at. At and t. stadium the first season it was open. He lasted this job for exactly one week. Because the elevator he was running was taking people to jerry jones sweet. He was bad mouthing sherry jones to the people in the elevator and they went up and told jerry jones. He made it to half time and he got fired. You know you did something pretty dumb if the elevator attendants were like bashing gets to the owner of the team. The only way. I feel like that's possible is if you're exactly doing that taking them to jerry jones's sleep so his part time job to quit running. My aunt crazy at home literally lasted a half full. He's worked part-time jobs since just so he could get out of the house. But that was the most uncle david story in the history of uncle. Dave if you are listening to you on that one it's been years. I find it to be extremely funny and jerry jones knows who you are because you bad him and told people that were going up to his suite so he wouldn't enjoy the elevator job because he was Not meal to watch the game. Exactly you by stocking garrick dilbert no. I think the cowboys are screwed. That's pretty good. You hear that voice right there. That's chris gordon. He's with india clue in the trenches of next reacting to the texans victory. Who's the next take so much to get to keep it locked right here on sports. Talk seven hundred. We'll talk to you tomorrow right here. On the sean salisbury show.

Falcons vs. Texans: Another awful loss to scream about

"Any Ninja Warrior fan guys welcome to the alcohol mix post game podcast the two thousand nine hundred and season week I want to know more about what your favorite Ninjas have on their minds check out the American Ninja Warrior podcasts. It's available wherever you get your podcast and it's a great listen fact that this Falcons Defensive Line could not take advantage of arguably a pretty weak offensive line in the Houston Texans Yeah I mean in the story here going into this game I had done in my normal series comparing the falcons defense to the opposing offense I had not in he basically like I'm not sure who hit Watson basically fumbled the ball was able to pick it up and then run for I think I down like to me did that. This was a prime opportunity for the Falcons defense to go against a Texans offensive line that had given up the second most media thoughts in the aftermath we are defenses bad that is my initial thought because thirty two points is these but they just could not capitalize and it seemed like there's opportunities the Texans converted those for big plays So what do you think about the the last score was a pick six against Matt Ryan so technically the defense really only gave up forty seven points if that makes you feel any better at all and it was a very good watch dwi I have no idea what you're talking about it definitely was if you're a Texans fan I mentioned to you before the show that when they did get pressure Watson's ability to just get out of pocket neither extended play or it probably shouldn't it doesn't make me feel better Evan what's your takeaway about this game you're winnable score for offense you know but fifty three points in you did you did mention how one of them was interception return can't totally put down the defense like he's a great player you gotTa give him credit but there were many times where it's just you sea TAC coming around chasing him too quarterback hits in the League through the first four games the Shawn Watson has been hit repeatedly sacked I believe eighteen times in four games and like if you'RE GONNA lose it's usually close but if felt like we got blown out and we basically did some last minute nat light it looked like it was just given the team gave up at that point they were going to chase him down thirty two points should be enough to win you a game but throw it downfield made it irrelevant The Times I can think about is like that he was in the pocket in the pocket collapsed and because the Falcons lost this game on the road fifty three to thirty to do want to add the caveat that the yeah they they did not register a single sack gray jerry seemed to be only person generating any kind of pressure in fact they had some that touchdown that put them over thirty for the first time this season Oh my God this offense the season in a disaster in itself but let's talk about let's start with the defense because I think that the you know last six eight minute drives by the Falcons put them over thirty got them to the thirty two Beautiful Pass from Ryan Ridley did I do agree that it looked like grady gier was like the only real interior pass rusher on the team because he was getting in the backfield making plays the other side and there's like tax not going to Outrun Watson so there's nothing he can do there but yeah they're definitely you know you gotta have some saxes assaulting some heat the desma true fought it across the board demolish mail and I think when you begin ends without looking at him as a whole because everybody struggle you know right yeah I think that's a very fair take on that because the fans so for Dan Quinn to spent this much time focusing on communication wherever he did not only didn't work it You Know Stopping Carlos high a couple times by the defensive line you know it they struggled but you know it's hard to pick a potter the defense not communicating. That's something that Dan Quinn emphasized a lot in this offseason he had said repeatedly that so with that I mean you've now seen five games with Dan Quinn as the defensive coordinator in your mind is this defense or putting special emphasis on getting the guys in the secondary in in in the middle of the defense to communicate with one another to know where the other to pile up names like that it begins to point at something more than just hey these players didn't play well because it really was it may have had the opposite effect because the secondary just looks lost and it'd be one thing if it was consistently Isaiah Oliver and better the same or worse than the injury riddled unit we saw last year. It's definitely worse because five touchdowns passer rating like in it sucks because Dan Quinn's big thing was he was taking back over the rain save first-time starters second-year player he struggling he's bad whatever but when you see multiple guys again you know Ricardo Alan Desmond True Font Kiana Neil done now does Shawn Watson I mean Watson had a I believe he had a perfect passer rating which you always see before he went down with injury accomplish mail you've got you've got veterans back there who are also position that tells me there's something else going on Anna hone in on specific players and also saw several people criticizing Isaiah Oliver and certainly had some bad plays Ricardo Allen is the ball at times but on defense it's like you pretty much see the same thing every week in it's like these quarterbacks it's like they they're you know the we've been facing lately have been a little more mobile like we were able to cut somewhat contained Carson Wentz enough to win because we did that game early on the field anymore I don't know why exactly I noticed the entrance is always inactive like the and I noticed a lot of people mentioning on twitter like this is where we're at where people are asking for our marquand manual to come back like where all of these guys healthy which is stunning and they gave up almost twenty seven points per game last year I think now after this game at least they add an excuse to bad in ice still don't even think they were that bad in you know I'm a big a homer for Jack Crawford but I notice he's sorry coming out of the Seattle Babol we've talked to all this stuff before but you know to your point and I agree with you I think the defense actually looks worse this year with in two thousand nine hundred before the season I probably would have argued the offense because of a new coordinator again coming in even though I was hoping we'll talk about the offense in the second half we're in that spot like I mean I knew I knew going into the season like the Falcons couldn't be dominant like I had some optimism especially when they throw it's one thing if I walked in real quick threw a pass perfect passer eighty eight through thirty three times folks the four hundred twenty six yards actually giving up more points per game than the injury riddled defense of two thousand seven two thousand eighteen pardon me and if you're Dan Quinn if it wasn't for like our offense air at the end by Jacoby per se Marcus Mariota Oh count those last six on the pick six gave up forty seven on the roads you mentioned a perfect passer rating and I love to Shawn Watson he's one of my favorite quarterbacks yeah this is this is a whole other level I think I if you were to ask me which unit may struggle more in everyone was excited but that that's a risk because of what has happened now he is solely to blame for the defense garbage defensive line is struggling as it is why not try something different it just seems like we're stuck in our ways in nothing's being adjusted in you know you see kind of bumbled like you said you made that bet on yourself that I'm going to be the guy to turn this defense around I'm GonNa step in it's going to be mine and I'm GonNa take credit for it closer than it actually felt it's weird like I feel like we lost fifty three two zero that's the kind of feeling this game had 'cause like the Ridley touchdown came really late I was GonNa be to make sure people were where they needed to be and if there's one thing we've seen through these first five games it's that this defense constantly looks out of place uh-huh that is it it has to be something deeper win the entire defensive secondary is out position in a missing plays this is unacceptable no matter what you cannot as a defensive coordinator give up forty seven points and expect to keep L. Doom for Dan Quinn in Atlanta in your mind Evan it's got to I was you know everybody was pretty much on the fence thirty seven I mean that sucks but like that's manageable this team got destroyed like the or the scorer seems one of which he was just short in the other one Isaiah Oliver Basically tackled him out at the inch- line so he scored like five times is more like garbage time scoring is just it's crushing because it's like we're not even halfway yet in the season basically thing would turn around for his sake because I do like him I think he's a bit coach and stuff but I don't know how you can recover from it like this is it's not like you lost thirty two it well you're going to get to take the credit for it and this putrid future defense just gave up forty seven on the road again the one that discredit him at all as you said he deserves credit for being a very good player and extending plays outside the pocket but is hoping you know the the offense occur wouldn't change dramatically but I felt like with Quinn and they're running defense he would know exactly what he wanted to do he is a competitor John I wanted to mention this I would I saw online Jason Bet but with the athletic said that Kiki Cudi who's a the job and even were even more so that you've done this now in your head coach does this spell does this Rick Record Game Yes sixteen targets fourteen receptions two hundred seventeen yards and three touchdowns and he should have had five touchdowns the same league as the Shawn Watson those guys had essentially good games compared to their normal stat line you know nine carries fifty nine yards six point six average but most of that came on the big run towards the end of the game realistically that end because our defence could not stop them I don't even think we mentioned it but will will fuller completely had like Julio s day so this is quickly becoming a a laughable defense and again as you as you point out perfectly at the beginning of this conversation defense they aimed to fix one issue and they created a bigger more glaring issue in the process. Sure you you're doing better against the run but wide receiver for the Texans mentioned that the Falcons defense felt basic that kind of sums it up end it's what we've been seeing all year you know it's not like league one hits any kind of get a little okay I'll what maybe we're not as good I don't think anybody could have seen this being this bad like we're in a hole right now oh you're giving up record yards to the opposing quarterback and even to you know lesser quarterbacks like Marietta and Brusett you know neither of which I think are in not even on the fence I'd say they were pretty much over the fence about to touch the ground that Dank winding to be fired this is like you know I was hoping way to cut that and just feels like the game that may end up being the death knell for his time as head coach in Atlanta I hate it like a touchdown down at times they went for two in Got It I think Austin Hooper caught it we were like in this game in Texans took off towards in this is defense that can stop the run now as like they focused on that heavily this off season with signing guys like Alan a against the the eagles this is this is quite possibly be worst possible start we've seen to a season has to we weren't stopping the run at all it it's one of those days where you WanNa just like wash your mouth it just feels filthy anything's really changed it goes back to what I mentioned a couple minutes ago about there's like no adjustment on defense it seems very Vanilla Bailey and Tyler Davidson and I think those were good signings but they're stopping the run but to your point they gave up four hundred twenty six passing yards. It's like we focus on the Andre Hopkins but willful or torched us just absolutely torch us in the running backs had like this holiday against of three touchdowns to the number two wide receiver not even the you know new caulkins who's one of the best receivers in the league I it's it seems like this all last year but my God one in four arguably could have been Owen five were it not for a dropped pass by Nelson Galore we'll be right back this episode is brought to you by Cox with Contour TV from Cox you can find all your favorites all in one place thirty right now like I need to go shower and it was just gross watching that it really was you know again what's amazing is in recent memory and this includes the Mike Smith Year so very very damning horrible game definitely not one You WanNa see at this point in the season so I think at this point I think Dan Quinn will make it to the by week all bets are off after that especially if they continue in this fashion so with that before we talk about the offense ticky take a quick break all your favorite APPs shows and movies on Contour TV from Cox. Hey I'm Spencer Hall I'm Holly Anderson I'm Ryan Nanny I'm Jason Kirk and liked Dan Quayle liked the higher when we brought him in I did personally feel like he deserved this season despite some of the issues we we announcers fleeing the booth early and unfashionable pants that coaches where now if you want to take college football exactly as seriously as it should be taken subscribe for free on Apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast APP and we're back on the alcoholics post game podcast for week five for folks who didn't Actually Watch the game the Falcons were in it for Like they were only you if you look at the Texans like their running game Carlos twenty-one carriers sixty yards he had a touchdown but two point nine yard average Duke Johnson Atlanta Falcons visiting the Houston Texans where they suffered a fifty three to thirty two losses as David Walker. I'm back with my co host Evan Burchfield and we're going to talk about the Falcons offense because visit have the Youtube Bet El what about that net flicker thing Netflix and all those Superhero Movies Contour has all the latest titles on when we talk about everything from cooking disasters to pro wrestling too unfashionable pants worn middle school we also do talk about college football every now and then like mascot fights gave the Atlanta Falcons visiting Houston Texans joining me as always my co host and fellow writer. Alcoholics Evan Burchfield Evan how about that game go my grandkids love that big green guy I prefer the one with the hammer myself okay I think we're done here now we're the host of the shutdown forecast avengers of college football podcast it says in the script to riff on what that means basically what I mean is this all already spoiled every Tuesday I actually think that this is a mixed bag despite the fact they give thirty or scored thirty two points against Houston so let's talk about uh-huh tied income in in score two of the touchdowns And I think that was his only to catch of the day is just you know for Dan Quinn to take ownership of this defense this means autumn it's on his shoulders this is him this is on him there's no some of the numbers real quick before we dive into this because I think you know this is part of the story and I want to talk about the other half of the story Matt Ryan finished the game thirty to forty six three hundred thirty yards passing three touchdowns and of course that one interception which though some people are going to beat up on for it you know the picks never have that marquee running back but they still collectively have like a good day running the ball when they need to we do not it's like and heavily involved in a passing game but the the way it's being used like you look at the stats and they don't look terrible I still feel like this offense is having major issues even though they scored thirty two points today in this is the first game they scored thirty points all season running back when you consider the Texans combined running back targets scored fifty three points would they only had to you'd like to scored thirty two points yes Matt Ryan had for three hundred yards Yes you should be able to score thirty plus points in the game and win that game when over thirty points this still feels like an offense that is not working to to its biggest most capable we have no run game Edo Smith has been saying I feel like all season he's looked better than Freeman Lee led all receivers with five receptions for eighty eight yards and the touchdown Austin Hooper had six for fifty-six either Smith had six forty five Jones three but definitely as you mentioned something does feel off you just you have to have a reliable running game that's first of all even the Patriots you know I mean Ridley had one one target and it was a catch in the colts game this dude should be a top focus of your offense just like Julio Jones should how the offense really didn't turn it on until late it felt like like I mentioned earlier the Calvin Ridley touchdown was like a junk time touchdown brilliant in in both of them being used a lot in the passing game this game both of them had combined I think eleven targets as a bit much you see Julio Jones more involved he did have seven targets in only three of them were caught but he seemed like when those balls were dropped he was like at least had to or mini. NFL and clearly defense has major issues But I still I I'm curious to get your opinion on this I definitely have a strong on here three defenders on which only makes me think that somebody else has to be open I do like seeing cooper constantly used because I do I do appreciate having tied in the running game devante Freeman Levin carries thirty yards for a two point seven average either Smith five carries nineteen yards for three point eight average Receiving Calvin combined are running backs had like four forty nine yards of less than fifty I don't remember the last time a falcons running back one hundred yard day you have to be able to its fullest capabilities what's your take on that do you agree to disagree or do you feel like this was a turning point for the offense now is just you look I want Vantera Freeman to be the better back because I like him but you know you can't ignore what your eyes are saying the clock down it feels like to me anyway it's like the Falcons offense just feels predictable where I down you'll must know what's going to be running up the middle the freemen like beautiful play to sidelined in You know he almost stepped out of bounds in any caught at the end zone it was magnificent but it just shows you forty two and Muhammed's new five for forty two with a touchdown this is I think where some of the flaws are showing yes which goes for like a yard or two in dull throw something offshore to sue or something and maybe he'll take a shot at Julio on third down in the Falcons oh absolutely and I think you absolutely hit on a key point here is the predictability I think when even under Steve Sarkisian every weekend like even when they come GonNa Watch him but they seem very predictable you get that feeling when you're watching them especially during the game same vanilla I mean we're hearing the defense being vanilla but dolphins seems very predictable me I don't know if it's just because I'm a fan and I watched him last year in two thousand seventeen to a lesser extent but clearly in two thousand sixteen hundred Shanahan one of the hallmarks of this offense was it's unpredictable up in a fourteen formation which is absolutely stunning for those that don't know what kind of play calls coming mix and it feels like the opposite is true now I saw on several occasions where Houston stacked the box on

Clemson Football Daily: Dabo To The Texans?

"And. This is the all into Clemson football podcast, the official unofficial podcast of the. Clemson Tigers. We've played in hurricanes before we we actually play in the hurricanes. We. We got double hurricanes this week. My my son plays the hurricanes on Friday nights. We got hurricanes everywhere. What is up everybody Briley here let's get started with your clemson football update for Wednesday October seventh number one Dabo Sweeney came out a little prickly when a reporter asked him about the newly vacated head coaching position with the Houston Texans. But team, of course, that his quarterbacked by Clemson's vary owned deshaun Watson, I have not heard from Sean and. You know that's Not. Even anything that that. You know I wanna even have to think about that's A. So it's just you would be the one asked that question all the questions and you will ask about Miami that sound is courtesy of Clemson sports information. Here's what I would say about it. It's a worthwhile question but an unserious one Dabo Sweeney would absolutely crazy to not only move to the NFL but make the move to coach the Houston. Texans. Sure. Deshaun Watson is great and it'd be fantastic to see the to link up again. But that team is trash bill O'Brien destroyed the Texans chances by trading with their future to try to. Build a contender. Now there's so many pieces away. Dabbagh would be mad to leave our friend Kevin Clarke from the ringer road that quote the Texans enter this era without him Bill O'Brien down a few stars he traded away without some high draft picks you gave away and having spent a lot of cash on a roster that simply isn't good enough sounds exactly like the type of team. Lead for your foray into the NFL, right Additional data is current salary with Clinton place him as the fifth highest paid coach in the NFL. Now, what's the real reason? Davos should never move to the NFL? The reason is I'm not sure his style would actually translate. The NFL dabbles a little goofy demands, the respective his players, and he doesn't really call place. All things that don't describe the Modern Day head coach Daboh is an excellent CEO which is why he's perfect right where he is and don't even don't even think about. Heading to Alabama number two. If you woke up this morning in a panic, thinking that Trevor Lawrence may no longer be the front runner for the heisman rest. Easy. My friend rest easy. You can lay your pretty little head back down to bed not that according to the sportsbook Bet Online Trevor Lawrence has the best odds to take home the hardware he currently stands at seventy two Atsu followed by Kyle trask Florida who has fifteen to four odds and after a breakout performance against Virginia Travis. Also finds himself in the thick of the race. He landed with twelve to one odds good enough for seventh best and you could even ten to odds on our good friend year keen. Now, this is obviously a huge storyline heading into this week who's going to come out on top and who's going to come out on top for the heisman race. The Tigers could prop up their two front runners while crushing kings, chances of bringing home the crown. A Win? Win, if you ask me and one final note yesterday was actually Trevor Lawrence's twenty first birthday. If you didn't wish him a happy birthday yesterday, you do not I repeat you do not care for him the way that we do. We sent him our love on twitter yesterday granted. He hasn't gotten back to us. Maybe our producer though trevor who also has the same name as Trevor Lawrence can help us connect with him since ironically yesterday was his birthday as well. What a crazy coincidence. Now sick with us as we take a quick thirty second break to hear from anchor podcasts are sponsor for today's episode. Did you know that anchor is the easiest way to make a podcast?

You can make money from your podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need to make a podcast in one place, download the free anchor APP or go to Anchor Dot FM to get started number three, and finally let's listen to some sound from Miami Offensive Coordinator Rhett Lashley with no context it terms of answers. Yeah. That that happens everywhere in college football and Clemson is is known well for doing it. But so are a lot of other people. It's just part of the game. And I think we gotta be aware of it. But at the same time, we gotta go play and. There's nothing against the rules of stealing signals can just like in baseball if you can catch onto a signal no gusty on second, you might as well throw him out. So we've got to go play. You know what? How dare he accusing Clemson of stealing hand signals? Our program is the most outstanding above board program. There is we would never ever ever do such a thing. Well actually, if you didn't know this already, this is way more common than most of us realize and to tell you the truth I had no idea. I want to encourage you to head over to our twitter account to find a super interesting article by Bruce Feldman of the athletic I pinned the tweet so you can find it at the top of our profile boil down almost every team in college football does this it doesn't appear to be as deadly as a sin as it is in baseball. So everyone calm down just a bit. This isn't Lashley's way of hedging because he thinks this team is going to get crushed although they might in fact, he spoke of how the Tigers are the standard in the ACC we have respect for Clemson. Their number one and they've been the champion our league for a while for a reason. And they've earned that opportunity is that enough context everybody? Yeah. All right. Let's just calm down for. That's going to do it for today's update. I'm really looking forward to catching up with you tomorrow until then be good out there.

"L and you must find it even hard to keep up with the Kardashians. Now, I wake up and I need a bottom Jenner on cognac two questions. What's going on? And is he okay today at three on NBC four then stick around for news Ford, four PM pan loss museum Leon Harris will catch you up on everything. You miss during the day and Doug camera helps you plan with our exclusive ten day forecast. Join us for us four. I it. We'll be on and working for you. Keep yourself in the loop of everything football on the Golden State media concepts football podcast, the latest news on and off the field. Be it college football ten SEC big twelve Pac twelve ACC to the NFL. We've got you covered listened to the Golden State immediate cut sets football podcasts. And thank you for. Joining me today on the Chia sim, see football podcast. I'm your host, Mark Souza. Thank you once again for being here today and for listening will be looking at last night's domination by the Houston Texans as they beat the Miami Dolphins handily. We'll talk about the rest of the week eight matchups in the next two segments falling. We'll talk about each game will break them down. And then, of course, off all that with some news and notes in the NFL and some college football notable matchups for this weekend. We're heading down to the nitty gritty for college football. We're getting closer to the end of their season. Of course as the NFL heads toward their halfway point. So we ate we're almost halfway there through the NFL doesn't feel that way to be honest too little sad. If I'm being completely honest at to to say that allowed that it's halfway through that were approaching the midway point. So has the NFL seems like the takes forever for the season again here. And then when it does it's over in the blink of an eye, depending on who your favorite team is already over. However, most teams still chance. There are teams that might be on the outside looking in. Maybe like the Miami Dolphins now who fall to four and four after last night's loss to Houston. He was a little scoring game in the first half until the Texans kind of blue this thing open. But we saw Danny amendola third touchdown pass, which was odd. We saw the Shawn Watson goes sixteen at twenty to thirty nine and five touchdowns. Also, our twenty one of thirty seven for the dolphins to forty one and a pick and again them and doa touchdown pass. Didn't see that coming. If you started having dole on your fantasy team. You're happy about that. But. Looking at the rushing leaders. We saw the dolphins. Give twelve curious the gore ING Kenyan drink so Kenyan Drake. He goes twelve. Fifty eight gore twelve for fifty three Drake also know the touchdown. Mar Miller had a big day for Houston. Eighteen for one thirty three in touch down there a little bit of revenge game for Lamar Miller as we know. He's a former Miami Dolphins action number eight on their all time rushing list for the dolphins. Which seems weird to say. I don't think he was there for a great amount of time. But I guess when you think about it the dolphins don't have the best running backs in their history. So it kind of makes sense that way the story of the game though was the passing attack for for the for the Texans despite how good of a game more Miller actually had will four or five catches one hundred twenty four yards and touchdown. He looked dynamic last night. He looked fast. Like, he always does. The Texans they were in a groove passing. But some news on willfuller coming up de'andre Andre Hopkins. He had a tough match by saying he was faced up against exe- in Howard, one of the most underrated players in the NFL one of the best corners playing this game right now Hopkins still finds a way to do though. Six eighty to two touchdowns. He also had an incredible one handed cattery cut the ball between his legs. It didn't count. It won't go in the stats sheet. But if you chance to check out last night's highlights look for that play he got called for offense pass interference. But man what? Incredible incredible catch by a player that has an incredible catch radius deandre Hopkins again, six thirty two. So what does this mean where do we go from here? For the Texans. That means they have a strong control of the AFC south. They're definitely trending up. We talked about it yesterday on the football podcast. Their team that's trending up the rest of the teams that are division. It looks like those teams are turning down Tennessee at three and four Jacksonville at three and four Indianapolis two and five. In fact, I'm being honest of those three teens, I think Indianapolis playing the best football and they're two and five so. I feel like it's Houston's division to lose five and three now go the Texans putting a little bit of distance at least one game between their counterparts in the AFC south. We'll see if they can stretch out. Maybe that lead a little bit. You know, it's just the Texans offense and defense. Just look good right now. And. For Jacksonville for Tennessee disfigures. So many question marks for Tennessee the offenses nowhere to be seen half the time. The defense keep them in gains mariota and that offense. They don't do anything to help that team win a lot of times. And then we look at Jacksonville. Same thing. Defense. Solid offense does not help them out. So. Do any of the teams Nancy south have a chance to make some noise. I think the colts at two and five is going to be tough for them. They do play the raiders this weekend. So maybe they can get on a winning track. Maybe they can push down the road. But they'll have to turn that thing around. Now. As for the Jaguars. They host the defending champion. Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday. Both teams are three and four. I'll talk about that game in detail in the next segment, but. It's a tough game. If Jacksonville loses go to three and five so. If you're the other teams in the AFC south you're looking at Houston. Okay. Houston is looking fairly strong. We need to start winning these games because we don't wanna fall behind. Can use go on a little bit of a run. I think we'll see. We'll find out now. Offense top ten in the NFL. Curly defense is same. Look at the schedule and I see a team. That can definitely go on a little bit of around. Here. They're coming opponents at Denver at Washington, they host Tennessee, they host Cleveland, and they host Indianapolis, then they're on the road to the jets. So the schedule definitely opens up they end the season at Philadelphia at Houston. But man. Or excuse me at Jacksonville. I said he's an this is a schedule. I think that's opening up very nicely for them. I could see them going on a role. It's actually not crazy to think about that. They could actually host a by maybe make the playoffs and. Excuse me have a buy week and hosts that first playoff game. Because when you look at the AFC Kansas City's at six and one the chargers are behind Kansas City at five and two but still Houston five and three right now, the AFC north leaders three two and one that's Pittsburgh. Cincinnati. Baltimore of chance to go to five and three this weekend. And the neat New England five and two so. Cheese loss patriots have to. But then after that you look at Houston three Pittsburgh as to but they have a tie Cincinnati. Baltimore. Other than those teams. Plus the chargers is a little bit of a gap in the AFC. So can the Texans get on a run here. Can't can they establish themselves as a great team in the AFC. They can to Shawn Watson is a very very good young quarterback is long as they can keep players off him if he can say healthy, I could see them in any game. I don't think that they'll that. They're the best team the FCC. But when you have a Gallic Hopkins guy like Watson. And then you have guys on the other side of the ball like watt today. Beyond cloudy. There's some playmakers here there's some playmakers, and I like them if they get in shoot outs. I like them if they get in tough grind amount type of victories. I think they could win multiple ways which is important because if you're talking about being one of the best teams whether it's the league division you need to be a versatile team. You gotta be able to win in more ways than one and the teams that are able to win more ways than one are the teams that usually survive in playoffs in where they have to go on the road. And maybe they're used to playing shootouts, but they can win seventeen fourteen seventeen thirteen on the road. You'll get a team like New England. We know that Tom Brady's great. We know that he's a hall of fame quarterback. He's arguably the best quarterback in NFL history. But that team wins in different ways all the time. They can speed you up. They can slow you down ball control offense short passing. And then some games. They'll throw the ball down the field. They'll take advantage of corners. They'll take advantage of safeties over the top. He'll see gronk get behind defenders or they have the death by million paper cuts approach that they love to employ ball control passing offense at the patriots love to do Julian edleman James white gronkowski. Even in the short intermediate range, but those short passes that the patriots love to do to control the game. But then they can open it up if need be. And I think the Texans have that ability. Of course, not saying they have the same players. I don't even think Watson is close to Tom Brady. But he's a playmaker. He's a smart quarterback. He's accurate enough. They can throw the ball short. They can get shootout type game where it's thirty forty yard passes down. The Phil we've seen to Shawn Watson face Tom Brady. We've seen him dul him. So the teams that can win a multiple ways are the teams. I believe are the most dangerous we see we see like when you when you look at it. I c t Mike Pittsburgh, who's a very good football team. But if I had to say right now who I'd rather have an big game. I probably go with Houston. Just because I think their defense is really good. And I would expect that game. Like if it was Houston and Pittsburgh to be shootout. But I would take Houston there because I think their defense will be able to make a couple more plays to win that game and their offenses are built very good. But. I told you I had injury news wolf lower. The young speedy wide receiver four the ten that Houston Texans. We know that Watson loves the throat deep to him it appears he has torn z L. That's what the field tests the initial tests by the trainers have suggested in the NFL when a team fears that a player has a tornado. I'd say about ninety five percent chance that that thing checks out when they actually do the Amari the field tests that they use are pretty pretty precise. I mean in terms of they know when a when a player suffered a major injury pretty quickly. They will always assess it see what it looks like see how bad it actually is. But not often does the team fear tornado sale ends up being something else. So we'll take a look in will wait for. Kind of the news on that. But as we know of right now, it looks like he will miss the remainder of the season. And if that's the case how does that affect the Houston Texans offense? Dunner hopkins. He's a great in his own, right? But when you have a garlic fuller. Would you have four is the Robin to Hopkins as Batman you start to see that teams lose focus on one of them. And that player will burn them. We'll now. If four is gone how does that affect the offense? I think good star beginning back wide receiver KiKi Kuti. He had a really nice beginning of the season with Houston. He has over the last couple of weeks been a little hurt, but he should be back as a hamstring injury. He should be back. I don't know if he'll be back this week. He should be back for the long haul. That will be a player that could take some of the weight off of deandre Hopkins into Shawn Watson, he likes to run a lot of place from the slot. But. We'll see how creative the Texans. Get another thing though. I spoke about Lamar Miller having good game last night. But. They get Deontay form in back from the I R. They have him back as early as this week. He's running back Houston really likes invested at third around picking him. So he's a player that possibly had the spark to this team. I not I'm not the biggest fan. I think that he's just a very average player in the NFL. If you if there's four yards air for me gets four yards. So like, I don't think he really does anything terribly special. So maybe form kin be a player that can really make an impact the impact player for this offense. That's losing an impact player in will fuller. Now we look at the dolphins. And I don't really know what to say about them their foreign four the start off three. Now, I wasn't a believer in them then at three now and going one and four in the last five, I'm not a believer in them. Now. Just. You know, their bottom ten in offense and defense yet they're five hundred. So I just I've been filling they've been playing above their head. But. You know, foreign four they have an opportunity to turn things around. I really thought that if also had a game yesterday. Maybe he would put some doubts in the minds of Adam gays and other offenses coaches for the dolphins in terms of maybe getting another start or maybe having a quarterback controversy there in Miami. Not that tannehill has been bad or anything. But you know, we are talking. We're talking about a franchise these that Adila Tanta hills injuries and things like that. And you know, if you're I feel like Adam gazes when those guys, you know, what's if you're on a roll just keep going with it. If it's not broke don't fix it. But also had a very pedestrian game mystery. So I think he reverts back to the backup role assuming Tanna hill kin go next time he is recovering from AC joint injury to his throwing shoulder. So we will see if Tanna hill will be back for the next. Now, the dolphins do obviously have that extended rest period. They have that. Extra those extra days off considering that they just played there's a night. So. They play their next game. They put the New York Jets, and they'll actually be hosting this game on the fourth. So extra rest will see if Tanna hill is back in the saddle as starting quarterback for the dolphins. But you know, we look at some of their next games. They the jets there at Green Bay there at Indianapolis and the host the bills. I think that's a favorable schedule for the next four games. It gets a little tougher after that patriots. Vikings Jaguars bills in the season. But those next four games are crucial. You got to believe the dolphins have to go at least two and to to be to stick around. This thing. For me. I think division has lost its New England's but there is a wildcard spot. The problem is they have seen north has three teams. Bengals ravens Steelers the AFC west. I've already. I've already Verdy got not San Diego. I always still say that Los Angeles chargers. I have them pencilled in as the first wildcard team if they don't wanna division. Let's remember as good as the chiefs have been the chargers read on their heels. So. There's one one wildcard spot open in my opinion. But the dolphins most likely need to go three and one in this next four stretch to have an opportunity to be in the conversation. I'm just not inspired by this football team. I think you know, Frank gore is your preferred running back an old Frank gore. You know, one of my favorite players of all time. He's well passes prime. He's still decent running back. But I mean, you could arguably say he's the dolphins. Best offensive player, which is saying something. Alber Wilson out for the year. Can you still was hurt yesterday? I'm not sure if he'll be back. Devante parker. A very good game for the dolphins. But they played them out of necessity. He's been a guy who's been in the doghouse of Adam gays former first round pick six catches hundred thirty four yards. I wonder if he can be the spark that they need. But I also wonder if he's a guy that could be on the trading block. He had a good game. Maybe the dolphins who value him as a backup. Maybe they try to regret. They recoup something for that. Number one pick that they that first round pick that they use on him kind of like what the raiders share the Markku per not. Sure Parker could fetch that return. But hey, it only takes one like they say, so I wouldn't be surprised if he's on the trademark it gets traded. But again, if he stays on the team could he be the spark? We'll see and it was good a quick break. When we come back. We're and talk about the NFL week eight match ups we have twelve on the sleep for Sunday. So we'll break those down in detail. What to look for what to expect? We'll do that in the next two segments. We'll do that. Right. After this. Hey, sports fans football season's here. And it's time to get in on the action.

And welcome back to the GMC football podcast again. I'm your host, Mark Souza. We're taking a look at week eight. We just talked about Thursday night football match up to Shawn Watson carving up. The dolphins defense. We look at week eight. These weeks become more and more pivotal teams struggled in the early season. These are the games that can help them turn their season around. But they have to start getting hot at the right time. The next couple of weeks weeks. Eight to ten is usually see little separation football between the teams who are looking at top ten picks in the teams who are looking at possible playoff berths. I think we have about five or six teams right now that you can safely say are not involved in the playoff talk. Oakland giants cardinals forty Niners. At least maybe the colts. Maybe the Browns. I'd also throw buffalo in there. I don't see them turning anything around especially what their rookie quarterback who has struggled is still better than Derek Anderson and Nathan Peterman, and he looks like he's still hurt. So. Other than that, some notable matchups all start off with a match up. That is not so notable get that one out of the way. So we can talk about games that matter the forty Niners will play AirAsia they'll go down to the desert. They just played them a couple of weeks backers was winner in that game five turnovers for the Niners. The first time they played a team that continues to turn the football over they score points. But they turn the ball over Arizona. The last time we saw them. Was that terrible Thursday night matchup last week or they crush at home by Denver, which led to the firing of Mike McCoy. The team I understand maybe the lack of talent maybe with a rookie quarterback when their struggles. They're not such a good football team. But I still think David Johnson is a really good football player. And they just have to find ways to get him in space. We take a look every week for the for the colonels. You'll get the box score. You say well, David Johnson. Not good. I disagree. They don't give him the ball on advantageous position. So now the role of offense coordinator has been handed to Byron left which a first time offense coordinator in the NFL. I'm very skeptical about him considering that he was on the cardinal staff last year, and they decided to go outside and bring in Mike McCoy. As their offense coordinator and knots like real afterwards. So if you didn't believe in him in the first time, what makes me believe in you believing in him the second time, that's kind of my outlook on them. But that said, I don't think anybody could have been worse than what we saw last week Mike McCoy the guy does his rookie quarterback. No favours. We heard that. Maybe the playbook is too difficult at this point for Rosen. There's too many concepts need to bring him in. He's a rookie. Like this is not an indictment on your quarterback. This is an indictment on your offense. You gotta work him in especially early in the year. He started him early. You have to make an off you have to create an offense in call plays that are conducive to his ability in his cognitive process at this early stage in his career will Byron left which guy to help. He might he's a former quarterback. So he knows what it's like to be a young quarterback. In this league. He knows what it's like to face defenses as a rookie as a young quarterback where you know, these guys are experienced across from you. They've seen every quarterback in the league in your trying to break in. So maybe with that empathy that will help by left which and their goal to turn this around for the cardinals. But one in six Zona one in six nine years. If I'm being honest. I feel like I see the Niners bouncing back of winning this game. Just because. You know, it is a first round or it is a first game for Byron. No after which has a no see I expect some growing pains. I think it'll be positive in the end can't be worse. But I like the Niners here on the road to get a little bit of revenge. I'm thinking scores something like twenty seven twenty. We'll move on. No one wants talked about that gave me more. Let's go eagles Jaguars. Because that game is a spicy match up to three and four teams two teams who had great seasons last year. Of course, eagles are the defending champions Jacksonville. They lose to Tom Brady in the championship. So both teams are trying to get things fixed, quote, unquote. As they travel across the pond a London. So this game's in England six thirty PM Pacific time nine thirty AM eastern. I don't think you east east coast folks understand when these games happen in London. They're literally at six or seven in the morning. I mean on the west coast, just imagine just imagine that. So you have it lucky. This time. But this game. I mean, we're looking as a record shows two teams struggled to teams looking to get back to where they were Philadelphia to go on the road. I guess are both on the road. But Philadelphia's technically the road team in this match up. I like them to win just because I can't trust Blake Bortles right now. I just cannot see I don't feel confident they can score twenty points on offense. I feel confident that the eagles can despite facing tough defense in Jacksonville. Still this is a game where I feel like Blake Bortles can make some noise. If he we'll see what he has them. I I was interested in hearing about Malcolm Jenkins talk about how when he watches a film on Bortles. He thinks that capper Knicks should be in the NFL, which is kind of a slap in the face. Blake Bortles will this matter. I bet he thinks it will bulletin board. Material. See if the Jaguars uses and Blake Bortles uses, but I see Philadelphia winning this football game. Eagles thirty Jaguar seventeen. Why don't we move on? Other NFL action jets they travel to Chicago to face Trubisky. And that offense that's been revitalize for the bears. Sam darnold rookie quarterback who have to go against that. Tough defense led by Khalil Mack. Just seems like it's a. Seems like it's a game. The Chicago should win easily as we see the jets. They come into the game with many injuries Blau Powell suffered a serious neck injury last week. He's out for the season. There's some injuries on the defensive side of the football. Bears are home Trubisky playing. Well, I like them to win this game. I don't know if it'll be particularly close. I am worried that because it is a row game for the jets. That it could get out of hand. I like Chicago win this game. Thirty four twenty. So we move on talked about three games here. Many more to get through so Buchan ears and Bengals Cincinnati hosting Tampa Bay temporary three and three Cincinnati four and three. Both are surprising records for me. The Bengals have been surprising in a positive way this year, although that lasting impression of them. He's about taste in my mouth. As they were just dismantled by the Kansas City. Chiefs at thought that it was a game would be kinda shootout Andy Dalton against that cheese defense, which is allowed a lot of points. A lot of yards thirty second ranked defense in the NFL. But the chiefs defense somehow control that game. In addition to their great offense. I am a little bit worried about the Bengals for the rest of the season for the bucks. They are what they are. They Chuck it. They give it up their score a lot to give up a lot. Bingles are similar in my opinion. There are similar team. I just think they're a little bit better on defense, but not by much. However, I do like him at home to beat James Winston in the Tampa. Buccaneers like Cincinnati get back on track to go to five and three keep keep their standing in the AFC as a potential playoff team. I do expect him to be high scoring thirty eight thirty one Cincinnati. My prediction will move on. Now if you were with me yesterday on the last last episode, I talked about a must one game for two teams Seattle at Detroit. Those are the two teams that I feel this is an early season must one game. I know it's only week eight. But when you look when you look at the schedules for these two teams when you look at the NFC and how it's shaping up to be a sprint. You look at each division. Detroit. Not only trying to stay in the division race or trying to stay in the NFC playoff Racine. Raciale there comfortably behind. Los angeles. But there comfortably in front of L or excuse me era Zona in San Francisco. They look like they'll be second place in division. But if they have aspirins of make it to the playoffs. This is a game that they need the travel on the road coming off by Russell Wilson. They're asking the crush Oakland twenty seven three. This is an interesting football game. I feel like this is a game though. There will be a lot of running. We know Seattle exit control a ball. They run at a higher rate than every other team in the league in Detroit we've seen over the last few weeks shift their offense a little bit more to a run focus carry on Johnson has been super impressive for them. Aguirre blunt had ten carries us game carry on had nineteen they like to run the football a little bit more than than they have in previous years. In of course, Seattle. I keep that thing. Low scoring keep Russell Wilson. Free. Take any hits. It's a tough game to call guys. I do like to the they're at home. I like carry on Johnson to have another gig game think he'll be relied on. I twenty four twenty. Detroit Lions so moving on. After this. We'll take a quick break. So look at one more game AFC west battle. Denver broncos. They Eyraud head of face cheese, Patrick Mahomes, and that offense it's a tall. Order for this Denver team. Denver coming off that impressive winning its cardinals. A very lackluster cardinals team almost felt like a BI week. Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, they'll look to limit the damage that Patrick Mahomes can can have as we've seen. Nobody's really stopped the chiefs even in their loss. The offense for Kansas City led by Mahomes Kareem hunt. Kelsey tyreek hill, I don't know. If there's a more daunting. Gra group of players at least offensive players in the NFL. I'll take those for what the the ability between those for the speed the matchup problems players create. I mean, the homes is a match up nightmare hunt. He can do it all Kelsey. Maybe the most physically gifted tied in the NFL tyreek hill fastest in the league. I don't know how how the Broncos win this game. To I think they can score you. Emmanuel Sanders, kirwin Sutton to Maria's Thomas Philip Lindsey. I wouldn't be surprised those guys put up numbers. But I can't for one second think that this chiefs team will be limited enough on offense. In Denver doing on on offense himselves to win this game. So. Kency. When's this game? Kim city wins game. Thirty four. Twenty seven. Sagawa head and walked out went in. We're gonna take quick break. When we come back. We have six more games to go. Break those down. And then of course, in the last segment falling talk about college football, some notable matchups. They're also an interesting story regarding officiating in the NFL. We'll talk about those things right? When I get back. Hey, sports fans football season's here. And it's time to get in on the action. With my bookie.

Of course, if you haven't checked other podcasts out on the GMC network. Please do so we have fantasy football that show becoming up right after this. We have a sports show basketball baseball, Emma. May you name it we got it? So if you are interested in more than just football, please take a look, let's continue our football conversation though as the Washington Redskins travel to play the New York Giants in an NFC, east robbery match giants at one and six. You know, they thought they played okay. Last game against the falcons thought they had a lot of fight. But they suffer another loss. And the question now becomes how long until you. I is no longer the starting quarterback of the New York Giants. I personally believe that he will not be traded at the deadline. I believe that he will remain on the on the giants roster. But at some point they're going to have to move on. They're gonna have to see what they have now Tanny. The giants are looking at a top five draft pick. Please. Look at every quarterback on your roster before you go ahead and draft a quarterback. We'll make a big difference. No. But, hey, if you have a diamond in the rough on your Rosser, you should find that out now instead of later, the manning course has been ran. I don't put all their blame. All the blame on him at all. But I think it's just time for everybody to move on the Redskins take a look at them. Very interesting football team led by Alex Smith. They're not an exciting team. They're very boring team, but they can get the job done at times. We've seen them what some press of Windsor foreign to. When I look at their schedule. It's interesting to me, you know, they blow out Green Bay. They get blown up by the saints. They get blown out by the colts. They beat the Cowboys last week. They beat the Panthers week before they're on a little bit of a nice run right here. They don't score a whole lot of points. And that's that's a kind of game that they can win against giants who themselves don't score points. So. Who will win? I say the Redskins Redskins win this football game. I think they're just a more balanced team. I believe they'll give you I Fitz on Sunday. The Washington defense can really put the hurt on that giants. Offense of wine led by the overpaid. Nate solar is still a disaster. It's been a disaster continues to be a disaster. I don't know what will change. You know, I know that saquon Barkley special player. But the giants still have not addressed quarterback in offense. Yvonne, not well enough. At least will they do that this off season. I bet they will. But it won't help them today. Will help them this weekend. Washington win this football game. Twenty four thirteen. Let's take a look at. Maybe game. That's a little bit more exciting. But another rivalry Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Baker Mayfield get his chance put the stewards for the first time. And as we know this game their first matchup earlier this season was incredibly competitive as they tied twenty one Twenty-one. But that of course was when tyrod Taylor was a quarterback. Now, we see Baker Mayfield. Stewards are also playing better. Fill like they're in their midseason groove even without Bill. Sounds like the Bill back next week. But as for this game, it'll be James Connor again for the Steelers running the football. It's a tough game. We know that this robbery has been swung hard in one way over recent not just recent. But over decades now. Pittsburgh Steeler should win this football game. I I wouldn't be shocked of Cleveland wins. Ended upset you seem each other. Really? Well. But like, Pittsburgh their home. Pittsburgh's at home. There are different team. They're just a different animal and. I like I like Pittsburgh to win this game. I think we'll see a score or something like thirty one twenty seven nice competitive football game. The Browns come ready to play. But the Steelers offense of talents too much. Take a look at the ravens and the Panthers the foreign to Panthers. Foreign three ravens. One of the more intriguing games on the slate. As we see that ravens defense face, Cam Newton Carolina. One interesting note. Cam Newton one of the bottom two quarterbacks in NFL when it comes to facing blitzes, his efficiency his rating has numbers go way down when blitzed the ravens are the team that blitzes the most in the NFL. This caused Cam in the Panthers some problems, and I think a will Joe flacco quietly put together a decent season. John brown. Michael crabtree. Willie Snead not a bad collection of receivers. They won't. Wow yet. But John Brown without speed. He he he's having a very nice season as a new Baltimore raven Michael Crabtree. No, possession receiver has been coming on strong as of late two Kershaw, McCaffrey. Start off the season pretty hot for Carolina. But we seen his role shrink a little bit recently number of carries. He's gotten. Number of receptions, gone down. I think it'll be a tough day at the office for McCaffrey is the ravens what they're very physical defense will be key in on him, even when they're blitzing. So. Interesting matchup, Carolina's at home. They're playing good ball to foreign too. I just think that the style of Baltimore will win this game. But what Baltimore in that offense? I don't think these score a lot of points. So should be entertaining game should come down to the last possession. But I do like Baltimore to outlast Carolina by a score of twenty three twenty one. Why don't we move on? Three games left to go. This one could get ugly. This has a potential to have a huge falling out in this game of courses Indianapolis at Oakland. Now, I know not very exciting. It's not a game that any of you unless you're colts raiders fans are just football nerds in general are going to be seeking out. This is a game for most people most casual fans, they won't care for. But Oakland, Raiders, how are they fair without Amari Cooper? How will Derek Carr in that offense work now Jordy Nelson Martinez? Bryant Doug, Martin Jilin Rashard. Jared cook, no marshawn Lynch is. He's on our no Amari Cooper as he's in Dallas. This thing could get ugly guys. If if the colts get out to lead in this game, if if the game itself gets ugly, I think scenes might get ugly as we know this team is moving Vegas. I don't think they were expecting a total rebuild to happen in the first six weeks of the NFL season. But that's what they got. So how supportable this fan base b? Will we see empty seats? Will we see angry fans? Will we see? Derek Carr struggle. Will we hear boos maybe the raiders will win? And none of those things will happen. But this has a potential it's like you can. The the talk cities like palpable. They're like you can feel you can feel that that game on Sunday is going to be tents for the fans you can feel. That fans might react quickly. If the game starts going poorly. So we get down to the last two games of the day. Two games. Wanna talk about a little bit more detail. The FOX afternoon game of the week Packers go out west to face the Los Angeles Rams. The seven annot undefeated loss Angeles Rams will they stay into feet against three two and one Green Bay Packers. I think they will. I think they will. Aaron Rodgers create player, but I feel like he's going to be under duress for most of this game. We already know he's hobbled. I don't think he'll be at full strength for the rest of the season. Just because of the demands that his position has. It's there's really no time frame to get healthy. Not completely. And then you have the Rams that offense that circus of an offense was Sean McVeigh that cassa characters Jared Goff, Robert woods Brandin cooks. And of course Todd Gurley Cooper Cup. Great player in his own, right? He probably will not be playing. So I'm assuming he'll be out. But for today or for this game. I don't think they need them. That Rams offense is humming along the Packers defense. We've seen give up points. We saw a forty Niner team go into Amdo and put up a lot of points against them. So. I don't think they slow down the Rams enough. Aaron Donald coming off a huge game for the Rams. How will they keep him off? Aaron Rodgers are would be really nervous as a Packer fan. Honestly. Because this game feels like the Packers will be throwing the football a lot and. Without said. Yeah. Aaron Donald Nidal mccown sue on the other side, these are beast pass rushers. I would feel very concerned about the safety of our franchise quarterback as we try navigate a playoff berth sitting at three two and one the NFC north as wide open at this point. The Packers find themselves behind Minnesota by win. But they also are have played one last game. So they could possibly be. Tied for the division lead. Right now if they win this game they could find themselves on top of the division moving forward. But. Seems like a tall order for to ask Green Bay team go on the road in Los Angeles. And when that game an interesting interesting tidbit here is if the World Series game five that game will be following the Rams game. So if you're in the LA area it's possible you could see Goth Rogers, and then Kershaw Chris sale as those are the expected pitchers game five if it gets there in the World Series. So would not be a bad day. Although we know about traffic in LA. I don't know if even get there. I don't even know if you get there in time to see the baseball game at night. Sata's that is. Yeah. This should be a good football game though. I would be surprised if the Packers won a lot of these games. I wouldn't be surprised that they swung the other way. But I would be surprised to see the Rams lose at home against this Packers team the last game that we need to talk about though. NBC? It's a night game. New Orleans Saints traveled a Minnesota last time they were there. I hope you guys. Remember? Divisional playoff Stefan digs touchdown. Not sure what happened with the saints defensive back on that play. Not sure what that safety was thinking. But that will go down in the history of football history of Minnesota Vikings. Is one of the biggest players of all time improbable as a was Minnesota won that game. So this is kind of a revenge game for the saints. Drew Brees the saints come in at five and one they have been just playing very good football lately. You know the Vikings. They have been playing good football too. They have a couple of shaky games there. But. We'll see we'll see, you know. It's interesting too. New Orleans started last season and finished in Minnesota. They started they had week one Minnesota and they lost. And they lost when they were knocked out of the playoffs. So again, a chance for them to get some redemption here, it should be a shootout as we see Kirk cousins and true breeze. Think we'll see him air it out. I think we'll see high scoring game. I'm not sure. If. If the Vikings will be able to keep up with the saints actually know what give me Minnesota. Minnesota wins this game. I got Minnesota thirty eight thirty five over the New Orleans Saints shootout, not sure if I gave my predictions for the other think I said Baltimore twenty three twenty one over the ravens. I do like the colts to beat the raiders just because colts are pointing a little bit better. Lately, kind of going under the radar Andrew luck. And that offense. I just don't know what's going on in Oakland. I don't know if those receivers are going to be able to get open the culture actually pretty decent defensive football team surprisingly enough. I like the colts twenty seven to twenty four in that game. And then of course, I said the Rams would most likely beat the Packers. And I like that game to be a thirty eight twenty seven type game. So those are my picture the week. I'm going to take a short break when I come back. We'll talk about some notable college football matchups and a story.

You know to listen to Golden State media concepts limits MMA podcast. And thank you for sticking around for the last segment of the MC football podcast again Mark Souza here on Monday. I will have my co host back with me Jeff Mel off. He will be back as we take a look at the NFL action that happened this weekend and college football action. Of course, wanna talk about a interesting story out of the NFL before moving on a college football. So I hope everybody's having a good day. Hope everybody's having a better day than Hugo crews who was fired from his job and his job. Of course, NFL official down judge Hugo cruise was fired for performance reasons by the NFL the first time the NFL is fired an official in season during the Super Bowl era because of performance. Cruise last working week six. Apparently his performance had just been to poor lately. The NFL does put their referees in tears are valuated all the time. You get your one tier two tier three. Of course, you need to be in tier one b. Considered for Super Bowl and big games like that. But apparently cruises. Performance was bad enough to to him to get fired. So it is the first time the NFL referee association spoke out against the NFL in defense of their of their former referee. Talked about the NFL having a knee-jerk reaction. That's fair. What's going on? But it is what it is moving on NCWA. College football. We have. Notable games. I think the biggest game of the weekend in college football would be probably Florida Georgia. For to number nine, Georgia number seven. It's an SEC matchup that. Very important. If I think the loser here has probably no chance at getting into the college football playoff. Winter has a great chance. Of course. I'm not sure if they'll be able to get in. But they'll need some some things that happened in front of them most likely, but Georgia hosts coming off a bye, weekends, Florida. Should be an interesting game. You know, both these teams they have Goodwin's this year. This matchup looks particularly close to me. But I like Georgia Georgia takes us win. Look for it to be a shootout, I think we'll see shoot out in this game other notable top twenty five match ups Iowa. Penn State Penn State host the hawk is Mick sorely four. Penn State will look to lead. Penn State to top fifteen ranking. You would assume they win this game. Either one of these teams they win this game. They'll get in the top fifteen probably closer to the top ten as we're talking about number eighteen number seventeen playing other. So. Other notable games to top twenty five teams matching up as Washington state as they travel to Paul Alta, California to face Stanford cardinal. Washington state just coming off that big win over Oregon. It's another big game for them. I do think they'll pull off the win. I know people like Stanford there the slight favourite at three points. But I don't know if they score enough points. Washington state's offense is just good enough to win this game by touchdown or so maybe less. We look at the other games Notre Dame number three the navy that should be an easy Notre Dame. When. Number two, Clemson against four to state probably game. That many thought would be big before the season starts but season starter for states whilst three games Clemson fair by seventeen I think the win continue their path to a playoff berth as the second ranked team. Other games that we look at Oklahoma Kansas state. There's a rivalry game. Oklahoma has moved a number eight is looked to purchase top five as we get closer and closer to the end of the season. Oklahoma big favorite twenty five points. Washington and Cal number fifteen Washington on rink cow. Interesting game here Washington, again, another team, I feel like they might be a little fortune to be ranked fifteen but. They can continue their path as a team that wants to win the Pac twelve so. We'll see how they do Texas and Oklahoma state number six, Texas. You know, they're a team that can make some noise, but they'd have to handle Oklahoma state. I they travel on the road. Oklahoma state think they can make some noise in this game. Slight favorite for Texas at three points. I wouldn't be spread. So say pulls off the set. This is a game that I'm kind of circling as like when I look at the top ten teams that are playing that game has the most potential of an upset. We'll see what happens Oregon Arizona play out west in the Pac twelve. Number nineteen Oregon is to rebound. Arizona unranked, of course. Oh. Not a whole lot going on in college football in terms of notable matchups other than Florida Georgia the nine in the seven Iowa and Penn State eighteen for seventeen in Washington state, Stanford fourteen and twenty four other than that. Not a WADA. Notable college football games tonight. You can't see Utah play UCLA twenty three ranked to Utah and UCLA looks for another win after terrible star in the chip Kelly era. So take look for that. But this is the end of today's football podcast. We'll see you on Monday. Again, it'll be me and Jeff off on Monday. We'll be talking about all the action from this weekend will preview the Monday night football matchup between the pats. And the bills do all that.

PODCAST:It's GameTime! Texans Welcome also 0-3 Vikings BONUS:Week 4 in NFL

"Conflicts right. Stack Ninety four dragon smoke chill turbo sucker right. You know what time it is it's game time. The podcast is back again as we get set for week four of the NFL. Adam Sager here with you as always at the controls and this is the NFL Texans and the Vikings Week four in the league the first by week of the season in the NFL two teams not scheduled when the came out but scheduled. Now because of the situation with the Tennessee titans as things continue to look a little bit out of control and I don't mean that as a scare comment but each day the titans continue to get more positive test results and each day that means there's a issue that still remains inside this league. So the. Titans and steelers game for this weekend was officially postponed out of this weekend does appear that it won't take too much scheduled juggling to get it back on track between week seven and eight. Each of those teams should be back on track ravens involved in that as well. The Texans thought they might be involved in all this, but the Vikings who played the titans have continued to produce negative test results a healthy team that missed really just one day of inside their facility work on Wednesday this week but other than that back in business to have. Zim Cubes and the dominator in control of the Minnesota. Vikings will make light of the fact that all three Texans coaches in their history will be at Energy Stadium for the Game Dom capers senior defensive assistant for the Vikings and Gary Kubiak runs the offense for Mike Zimmer's Vikings as the OC course bill O'Brien is currently the Texans head coach. He will be there on Sunday So we'll get into all those things get into this match specifically here to kick this podcast off and then run through the rest of the NFL slate including the brilliance of two super bowl winning quarterback treating us on Thursday night football, right Rippin, and FLACCO. Delighting US last night on Thursday night football, not elite Joe FLACCO. So that's an axe on that stage passes and not mark rippin. So an x on that statement as well. It was what we thought it would be. A game of bad football I want to get into the Texans I. But I WANNA go in order and I think they actually provided us one talking point in last night's Thursday night game. Greg Williams doesn't belong in the NFL Oh. No. No many more teams I like it and I I don't know if I actually hit send on this but it was a tweet along the lines of hey NFL teams keep hiring Greg Williams because as long as the team that you root for you me anybody out there doesn't have him on staff you'll love him because he's a total joke he has been for years I can't believe how many teams. Know it and yet how many other teams won't a big hat tip to Steve Smith last night on the NFL network coverage after the game he just flat out said at this is Greg Williams played against them or number years and Carolina of talked to guys on his team talk to him before if he were right here, I'd say the same thing but on what the jets did in the game last night with all their ridiculous stupid personal fouls. He said that's the B. S. you get from Greg Williams. It's the same BS. He's been doing forever and we know about some of the stories It's a it's the kind of thing that actually would probably by Adam gays another game or two or three if he just fired him today because their defense in addition to intercepting three passes returning one for a touchdown. Got Their butts smoked by third string undrafted quarterback. Yeah. And not only does that you what they still put up thirty seven I think. They. Played against your defense had a third string undrafted quarterback missing one of his top two running backs missing his top receiver, his tight end left. And they torched you while giving you the football and points throughout the game. Just how Not. Only Greg Williams. Who you mentioned how Adam Gaze has a job right now is just embarrassing if I'm a jets fan I mean. At this point it really does not matter but hell leave gays there and just let him lose every single game to make sure you lock down. Trevor Lawrence is you don't want someone coming in and not that this is going to go on a run but hell, even just win three games like let's not do that if you're a jets fan but it's just been putrid we can laugh at the Atlanta Falcons for what they've done. But at least they put up points and they have a good quarterback in. The defense is terrible in Dan. Quinn should not have a job either but least there, a semblance of eight, an NFL team the jets are not. There's nothing about that team they've taken Sam darnold turned him in from a good quarterback prospect to a guy that I don't know how long it lasts in the league. Now I don't know why I thought I. Knew it Sam, Darnold was coming in but. The jets and Adam Gates have taken him and molded him into a terrible NFL quarterback. Yeah. A lot of people thought it was a broken collarbone game for Sam. darnold got slammed the turf on an on penalty and ended up coming back in the game I. Don't think he's washed, but I do think he's probably washed their. Yes and that's a bad spot to be when you're very high draft pick. Not, many other teams, GonNa flat out give you a GIG. But it's GonNa take one of those where he gets on the bench for somebody else the starting quarterback either gets benched or more likely gets hurt because normally starters are are good and then he gets a chance to show that a behind a decent line with decent players. I mean, he's playing with back end of everybody else's roster starters. Is, running back. Group is a bunch of back end guys. No fence to Frank Gore, right? That's what he is. Career and clearly his receivers beyond Jamison crowder who would be a nice piece to a receiver Hor. He's far and away the best target. He's number three exactly. He's a good slot. Number three last night his big left tackle the rookie, Mukai, Beckton. Was Injured at an injured shoulder. They still made them. Active is an emergency player that is your number one area goes. Out there and then he's out, it's just i. mean that alone just that one thing taking your franchise left tackle because he can be that good I. Mean we've seen him just mall defensive ends in his first game in the NFL, looking like a true left tackle and they have them out there with an injury he's playing with an injury after they made them active. Instead. He's an emergency player and he's out there early like what is going on? I don't know how Woody Johnson allows us but then again it's woody Johnson what do you expect? So the jets story hasn't changed they stink we expect a coaching change at some point this season and I don't see where a winds coming. So at any point with the Ofer they can. Go ahead and make that happen that caught the week started in the NFL a lot of other games to discuss will hit those on the back side of the podcast here. So we will get into the Texans and the Vikings we can mock the Thursday night game. All we want. Oh, in three versus own three it's the same game that's coming here to energy. Stadium. On Sunday, the own three Texans and the own three Minnesota Vikings Vikings have been very bad. Defensively have been very bad offensively despite having to thirty point games that both resulted in losses of the close loss to the titans on the late field goal and really a little bit of a scoreboard wizardry in the game against the packers, the packers blew him out and then. Scoring touchdowns and going to an succeeding. It's all of a sudden. I had a bunch of points on the board but most of them were hollow and that's really the story of Kirk cousins know you guys spent some time during the week on the Sean Salisbury show talking about cousins we have as well, and that's where we start with two and three teams both playing poor defense both wondering where. That first one is gonNA come both having a coach that's been there for the same amount of years and hasn't really gotten anything accomplished both who are probably not even on the hot seat. Zimmer's got an extension. Recently will O'Brien has all the hats that he wears there that are so important. So all those things being equal one think can't be equal and that's the quality of your quarterback play. You can't possibly tell me that kirk cousins against the Texans defense is going to be better than to Shawn Watson against the Vikings Defense. Except you probably could make an argument for, and that's what's unfortunate about this Texans team heading into this game. That's the problem. That's the big issue here is it's the Texans. Defense has been very poor against the run and against the past. Now, against the past, we haven't really talked about it much because. The run defense has been so putrid that you kind of just don't pay attention teams haven't had to just you know sliced them up but the vikings every pass offense that can go out there and put up yard, put up points when needed Oh and they have probably. As of right now, the best running back you'll have faced in the first four games endow and cook who just ran for one hundred and eighty one yards last week against a Tennessee defense. I think is better than the Houston defense especially against the run I mean I just look at this and it this is a game that concerns me just because of the standpoint of. The vikings offense can't kirk cousins. Is a regular season quarterback that puts up stats I mean that's what he does. That's that's his whole Gig, and then he throws hail Marys in the playoffs and sometimes they work out sometimes he gets a call on a non push are a non college should say on a clear push off that ends in his tight end stands for a game winning touchdown. It just. Dach-, what Kirk cousins is, and that's what scares me about this game. The the Texans have shown us the offense outside of one half of football. In my opinion that you're saying, we can lean on Nisan and let's go. The good thing is the vikings have a bunch of injuries in their secondary and they're very young and their secondary. But. Will Bill and Tim Kelly utilize their weapons in the right way to take advantage of that. Yeah. I think something has to give on the Texans offense because I think the other negative about it. We haven't really gotten into this year. Insure seems evident after three weeks specialist some of the things, the steelers doing the Texas have changed the personnel on offense when not Andrea Hopkins is there and you have different running back and receivers that. You're deploying, but the playbook hasn't changed enough. The books not utilizing those players in the proper way thus not only has it not put them in a better position to succeed. It's also allowed all these teams that have watched Bill O'Brien run this offense for half a decade to have a pretty good backlog of film to look at. Does it not look like the other teams know what is likely on the way? Is there absolutely no. Coming from the Texans offensive play calls Puck is in motion. So infrequently, they can run so many things out of these groupings that they're using in these sets that they're operating out of it absolutely looks like the. Opposition has a really really good idea of what's coming for the Texans and specifically to their personnel and what they're not doing well I. Know that haven't run the ball well, since week one and even then they didn't run a ton only eleven carries for David Johnson Has clearly gone the toilet since then no fault of his own treating him like a nature on means and he's not so stop running into fifteen two, hundred, ninety pound guys, and maybe you'll get some yards but because their of their inability to have a successful run game which I think they're trying too hard to make happen at times. I think it's made them super premium afraid of play action and play action for this team for most teams but. For a Shawn Watson led offense is vital and they basically don't run it anymore. This season I think they've run twelve play action fourteen fourteen to Shawn's fourteen play actions for one hundred, sixteen yards, just pull it up. That's not a bad number of yards per play, right? That's favorable number and obviously worked for how often you've run it and I know you need to be selective with it. But you can't abandon it ever and they essentially have that's less than five plays a game. For, John On. And I we're looking at it and the other. When I pulled up the other day, we're talking about this on Sean Salisbury show the rams in comparison. Have done. Fifty two. And that's what Jared Goff I mean. That's where he's that's his bread and butter, and it uses them helps him get his wide receivers a little freedom. But the other thing they're not doing with Sean. RPO plays. Four Sean. Three pass attempts out of it. One Russia temp. Now, they have rushed nine times where he hands the ball off in the RPO, but that's only ten times. So we're talking twenty four times. Yeah I'm a little I'm on the fence on that where you would you like to see dijon run the RPO and clearly they're going to be options where he is the option he should keep it. Do you want that I know not a lot but I think there can be times where but. More than yes. If you're seen something where I mean, he's only ran the ball one time it was for eight yards. It worked that play I don't know the exact playoff, top my head, but it obviously worked because if you can get eight yards each time and he's not getting hit hard then yeah. You have to utilize that but he's only thrown the ball three times. So they're not even using the RPO that is a weapon that we see all over the League now came from college. And it's being utilized by a lot of teams including the Baltimore. Ravens. I mean that's Lamar gets a ton of yards out of the way they use him in that, but all teams use it. Nick foles used it. So well in Philadelphia that year they won the Super Bowl, he's not a running quarterback, but it's an aspect that just makes the defense think. If. You're not using play action. You're not using RPO that means just straight dropback every single time. Right and that's unacceptable tells the defense what they can do, and that is not hold up mention no movement prior to the play or to the snap the if you're not having movement when the ball snapped or prior to 'cause they're one of the least teams in the League doing that. To Sean cannot say, okay, well, it's man coverage here they can disguise so much easier their defense against your offense. Yeah. Play action should hopefully slowdown the backer slow down the trust potentially I know that they don't want long drawn out. Plays because they don't think they're offensive line can hold up and maybe this week, they'll feel differently against the vikings although most teams doesn't really matter who they are. They have success getting to the Texans. I know there were five sacks a week ago against the steelers, very, very good rush and very good blitz games. I actually thought that was a day where it didn't prevent them from succeeding in the past game You saw what Watson did in the first half many of those sacks came in the second half when they're play calling was much more suspect and they put themselves in miserable down and distance. Situations. because of it did not attempt to pass on first down in the second half at all. In the Pittsburgh game, they only had four first down plays to run to our first plays of Dr Radha, garage that more accurately, they only had four drives to were runs to were dropped backs but neither of the dropbox resulted in a throne football, he ran on one of them in was sacked on the other. Those things will change will change saying they have to change they will change It's week four for Tim Kelly as a play caller, he's facing clearly the worst defense that they've seen. And they're just they're just simply will be. And I think both of us feel like the Texans offense will have their most successful day and maybe that also means both halves They had a great day against a great defense for half. Why were you unable to recognize what was going on in the second half until long after the game, you let the other team make adjustments completely shut you down I don't feel like Mike Zimmer's defense with the Vikings will really even has the personnel to do. It should have full complement of players amidst all this covid nineteen season and teams that are just getting decimated by injuries a like the broncos like the niners and there's probably ten. To, fifteen years name the Texans aren't one of the teams there. There have little they have typical bumps and bruises guys out a week is out three weeks guys, gametime decisions. They haven't had a rash of those injuries. You would hope that they would be able to take advantage of it. I do believe do Johnson, is ready to play will fuller who hasn't had a full week of practice is expected to be out there again and I don't think they'll be any limitations on him unless there's an injury in game and same thing goes defensively probably don't have a definitely don't have gary on Conley back yet. Well, think they're such a deficient spot. In that group I actually don't think the corners have had a bad season at all this might be a little bit more of a test is the vikings figured out where to put Justin Jefferson finally and with both he an theline out there I think that is a bit of a challenge and I would expect cousins I mean I'd be willing to say three of his first six passes are going to feel in probably underneath and probably just to build a rhythm and that's the kind of stuff if I were the vikings I would keep doing but I have a feeling they're not smart enough to, and hopefully the Texans will thwart it but that's the the. The twosome cousins to feeling there can't be a nine catch one, hundred, sixty our day for the'll in and that's a concern I am. I think the Texans are perfectly good position to utilize their back in personnel and keep those guys in check while trying to do what the Vikings I, two opponents, digital cook, and a little bit of Galvin Cook Having to subpar games and then the blow up game. Was the scoreboard don't act like he's been shut down by those two defenses. The Vikings had to throw the football because they fell so far behind his yards per carry every week three games four and a half or better. Just. Don't let it get to eight point to like it did last week he's going to have a good day. Where are you? Okay. If you had your choice, your Anthony Weaver are you saying let's Maybe early in the game, start the game. Are you saying let's slow down feeling in Jefferson and cousins are you saying you know what Justin Reed? Let's bring you up another five yards six, hundred, seven yards more towards the boxer into the box and say, let's try and stop down and cook early and make cousins beach you a little bit and maybe he gives you the ball and you get your first force turnover of the your I. I wish it was a bring someone up in the box and guarantee that need slowdown Alvin cuts. Think because of that I don't think they will do that. I think they'll be okay. If that's the way they wanNA play I think they're comfortable with their fresh defense beginning of games handling what they need to, and honestly, why can't Winston Anthony Weaver go into the linebacker zoom during the week and say Hey Zach did you get We just passed the September thirtieth get that check. Yeah. That check your account. Yeah thought. So you're leading entangled entre yeah thought. So okay it's your job to make sure this guy doesn't blow us. Out of the water everybody will do their job Bernard mckinney Bernard mckinney against the Ron especially inside he's an inside linebacker but especially their he's been pretty good this year he stuck his helmet in there. He was a disaster on the Ingram touchdown on fourth and one because he took himself out of the play and created the rush line. But other than that he's done a good job i. think in that regard Zach Cunningham has had a few too many missed tackles, but I think he's missed too many assignments had been caught out of. Position and done things poorly, he's done things. Well, these are the Games where you say why why does he apple money? That's what he's gotTa. Be The the that keeps Dalvand. Cook from getting to that second level and bursting through and like Jj talked about right after the the game against the steelers I mean for crying out loud I. Know Brennan Scarlet Jacob Morton Whitney Mercilus aren't showing up in the past disruption stat charts. Somebody's got to set the EDGE IF YOU'RE NOT GONNA atty has at the edge, turn these running backs inside. Don't allow yourself to get pinned to the interior. You know getting to the corner for Connor and and the other two running backs for the steelers way to easy and Dalvin cooks better faster than both. All three of them That would be an issue moving forward. But clearly, the Texans are aware of that I think they'll at least be conditioned to force those runs to be more harder earned by running through this line rather than just running around everybody and getting the edge and the one good thing for this defense is. You know it's not good when you bring it up in terms of the pressure allowed but because the deshaun is pressured and more than any quarterback in the league. This year thirty, seven percent of the time he is pressured according to pro. Football reference. But cousins is at thirty four. So you can look at it and say you know what neither one of these lines can. Keep their quarterback clean most of the game. So we can get a little bit more and and we just have to trust what we see. But neither of these offensive lines are good. So I think it's a matter of whichever front seven can win in terms of. Everything stopping the run and getting after the quarterback I think gives their team really good shot to win this week more likely to happen and I'll give you the facts and figures to help you back your decision the Texans. Not Turning the ball over. They've had a turnover, every gained veteran, an interception and every game or the Vikings. Turning the ball over to the Texans Vikings have done it all year their second from the bottom of the league number of turnovers given away their number one in the league and thrown interceptions. But obviously, the Texans are the only team in the League to not take the ball away the entire season I would definitely say it is more likely that the Texans. Defense Forces a turnover because of the guy who's throwing the football and one underrated thing underrated. One thing about Delvin. Cook. That does have he fumbles football. He does not hold onto the football that well, that's been a problem throughout his college career and that's been a prom early on in his NFL career. So I, if I had to pick one what was going to happen, it's definitely the vikings turning the football over to the Texans if they don't. then. It's a big problem because this is such a turn. You just mentioned the numbers. It's not closed there. What second to the bottom I mean I, like to reference the stats the put everybody on a level playing field. So I'm not including Denver's three picks from last night. Through three weeks the second. Philly was worse. I it's just man i. hope the Texans defense can force a turnover against this offense because kirk cousins loves to give the ball to the other team. It's one of his favorite things and it must happen the Texans certainly have to feel like this. Is it I know the the schedule in front of the bye week is not crushing, but it would be you can't be any two and five at is is probably not even good enough. So keep in mind your own three got four games until you hit the by. If you if you split these Games and Green Bay and Tennessee are on that schedule along with Jacksonville. Next week, that's two and five with nine to play doesn't eliminate you from the playoff race but now you're almost guaranteeing that. Those to have to be in the division or they certainly have to be the AFC. Games and that's it. Those are the only two AFC games you have before the bye week that are left. The other Games are obviously against the packers and Vikings for tiebreaker purposes for trying to get the whatever it is and all were doing here. anyways talking. About math math will always be there but the footballs gotta come first and it just isn't for the taxes. Are they eliminated not we have a long season left yes. Do we have all these division games left? Yes. Are you gonNA keep telling us that? Yes because it won't change this week you'll still have twelve games left after this week you'll still have. The same six division games remaining the same number of AFC Games that you have remaining will still be there as well which can't lose can't lose football games in a sixteen game season and just keep saying there's a lot more seasonal. It to me it all it's not where I use the word must win now but boy does it feel like you can't literally expect to win Enough Football Games in twelve weeks to make the playoffs considering who's on the schedule your low level of play through four weeks. That's the biggest part they can eighteen win twelve games in a row. Of course can you win nine twelve? Yeah. Good teams can teams that play good football can not your four reason? Could a three and one team rattle off eight wins and nine weeks? Sure. They're really good. That's what the math part of it. It really doesn't fly really doesn't work, and that's why they should be viewing this and they should feel the pressure. You know they were a a unwilling to use the word panic, which again I would be really jumping off the bandwagon. If our a fan of my team said yeah, we're panicking the they use the word urgency The urgency is there from week one in the NFL it's a sixteen game season. So they better feel urgency for this one and I do believe that they will, and I imagine from both of us as before we transition to the rest of the NFL chatter here. And give our pick to Click which has been rock-solid so far this week for the texts are the season for the Texans are we each picking a Texans Dub? Well. We just did this on the Sean Salisbury show about forty five minutes ago. And my prediction was thirty, one, twenty, eight. MINNESOTA. So an over and a vikings cover yet four four and a half. Yeah. Okay. Think the number right now for. The over under fifty four I tend to agree like the over I definitely do like the over. I do like the Texans. And I'm going to actually give him a cover. I do expect a close game but I think they'll get over the four. Okay. I I mean it's not going to shock me if that happens. Maybe I'm just because we're here and I'm just so just the way they've played. Through three games is just really frustrated me that it's just I'm not trying to quit on this team but damn it's just it's been frustrating because it's just it's groundhog day. It's the same thing from what we've seen in years past and nothing is changing. You made all these changes, your oster. And told us all these good things that they can do. Well here they are has ever changed anything. It's the same thing. So I hope they win I. Really do I want to see a team that gets competitive but I think these teams are very evenly matched. I could see a going either way my pick to click for the Texans. Is Brandin cooks I think he sees enough targets to where he pushes to ords his first one, hundred yard receiving day with the Texans he's been close once. He gets there this week I think they do still spread the ball around I do think they get a full day's work will fuller and he's probably going to get in the end zone but I'm GONNA give the pick to click cooks for helping to continue to move the chains couple big catches in there and Watson and cooks continue to develop where he is a reliable seven catch guy. Sick five, six, seven, catch a week guy who can get eighty plus it's just not what you're used to considering who you've had but should be enough to put multiple touchdowns on the board both of US pushing this game over. So I'll give to cooks this week. Yeah. I mean I'm sure whichever player I picked doesn't want to hear me say his name because whenever I picked potato amy. That way. They'll be touchdowns all day. I'm going to say Jordan Akins I think he can have a big day against those linebackers, and now if they do bring safety down, that's one I'd be concerned because they do have one of the best safety duos and football with Anthony. Harrison Harrison Smith but I think Jordan. Kids can have a good day against these linebackers. I think the safeties will concentrate more on a David Johnson type out of the backfield in trying to contain him in the past game. If. The Texans actually use him, but I I'm going to go Jordan because I think he can have a big game. On Sunday will fuller the only Texan with more catches than Jordan gins this season. And will her a where he targeted? They have spread at a ball around twelve for fuller eleven for Aitken's eleven cobb ten for cooks so far this season would like to see more than a three catch game for David Johnson that's still his seized vest and that was week we're gonNA bring that up every week until they actually. Had more than four targets in a game yet just thought they would be doing things differently. Maybe if it's a only the second game of the season where he and Duke Johnson are out there together, which we do expect this week for the first time since week one of that allows for more of it because to to to ease up on hammering their use of him, he wasn't expected to take ninety five percents of the snaps this year, and he has over the last couple of weeks because they won't play precise and Dukes not available. So he's basically out there on every single play a lot of pass blocking requirements also needed. And it prevents route running and also wears on you just a little bit The rest of the AFC south is where we will start with next and looking at the week ahead for the Texans, and what they're trying to do is they will remain behind a team that's three and out because the titans won't play this week. So the first place titans will remain that way no matter what happens in the NFC south but the Indianapolis Colts will have a chance to match them with a third win. They're on the road at the Nick Foles the bears of made the change not nick foles will start this week in provided he is. You know himself, which is better than Mitch Trubisky I don't expect to change in game for the second week in a row. But the bears are three no at home. In October. And are underdogs to Philip rivers in the colts. Yeah. I think these two teams on I. Look at them there I actually think they. Tend to mimic each other a little bit I. I think that they're both pretenders. Yeah. Basically the way what we've seen so far. Yeah I'd have them both pretenders to to be a super bowl caliber team I. Think they can both make the playoffs. I think it'd be tougher on the bears because the NFC but I think the AFC's been pretty deep so far. So I came even say that about the colts. A I mean. It's such a toss up because we just don't know what Nick foles will be a week long where he is the starter, he's getting the snaps he's preparing for the colts will they continue to push the ball down the field I think? I think they can definitely beat the colts I think they can Do a lot of good things but the biggest match up to me is that front seven of the bears versus the offensive line of the colts who whoever wins that match up. I think wins the game. You basically say if you can't lean on Taylor for twenty plus carries run the ball effectively. Then, you're GONNA lose and the reverse is probably true. I. I do agree one, hundred percent I. Think it's all about that the more you force Philip rivers to throw especially in any game I mean Indianapolis with no fans without any weather yet this year outdoor indoor Philip rivers kind of stuff because he doesn't have the strongest arm, sometimes, the weather can play a factor. I don't know that it will, but it's certainly a positive. If it does for the bears he's starting to to figure things out that there's people. On his players on his team while the clearly the names of change from who was throwing to you've seen more MO- Alley Cox you've seen more usage of who should be catching all these underneath rose The pitman situation is not a good way that and that's a factor but I tend to believe them. That's after losing Paris. Campbell Paris Campbell also not available T. Y. Hilton has basically been a non factor, this type of game where a healthy Hilton a should be a big deal I think they'll look to him to be. But I think this is a game, the bears, winds I certainly think they'll cover considering their dogs but I think this'll be a game that cut the colts fall back down to five hundred played a little bit better team than they have in the past couple of weeks and and therefore they suffer defeat. The big key is you mentioned Jonathan Taylor the bears against the run without Eddie Goldman, who opted out due to Calvin concerns that's been one of their problems and I mean, I've been begging them just to bring in a big body snacks, Harrison or someone along those lines just to fill the hole in the middle because right now they're trying to play. Blau Nichols in the middle and he's a three hundred and ten pound guy that is not made for a three or four front trying to stop the run. So akiem Hicks is going to have to play big in this game and he's one of the best defensive Lineman and football at stopping the run. He's going to have to do it, but he's also going against one of the best offensive lines in football. Yeah. It's interesting what you want to think about these two run teams a colts offense bears defense seems like the culture are. Good. Running football team but they don't average very many yards per carry it because they're just say we're gonNA run as many places we can they get us down the field however long it takes as long as river's doesn't have to carry US other averaging less than four yards a carry as a team, the backed ten of the League twenty sixth in the League in yards per rush. But the bears are in the very same spot defensively, they have had trouble stopping the run on our yards per rush average and to me that's much more indicative of the total number of rushing yards allowed the type of defense you are. So a basically whoever steps forward in that matchup wins the game both of us have the bears taking the DUB. They're knocking the colts back down to five hundred the Jaguars. Are At the Bengals I'm okay. Saying Joe Borough makes slow steady progress from a couple of impressive performances in losses in each of the first two weeks to a similar performance in a tie in week three to another decent performance. But a win in week four bengals over the Jaguars. Yes favorites. Yeah. Completely. Agree I'd said that earlier on Sean tells ratio just I think this is when Joe Borough can get his first win and Those first couple of weeks where we looked at the jags and we were like man, maybe they're not the Jags we thought they were going to be maybe they aren't just pushover team. Well if they come out and lose the bengals especially if it's like what happened with Miami? He. Now, you're looking again insane I guess they are the team we thought they were because you can't play two games like he did more weeks want to, and then just get your ass kicked by Miami and Cincinnati Ryan Fitzpatrick was unstoppable against the Jaguars wanted. So I don't see why borough and their offense which is starting to figure things out utilize these little got it will. They're definitely not going to do that he's been hit I think more than any other quarterb and these are the worst like the Shawn Watson got crushed by TJ Watt at the beginning of the game and then on the interception to vicious hits hits, he really hadn't taken all year Joe Borough takes those. Every quarter of his season the big bad crushing. I can't believe you're getting up from this hit and he's taken way too many of them three weeks into his NFL career. So yes, they would like to to do a better job of that and I suspect that he's also going to recognize k. here's the speed of the game. When I had one extra ticket at Lsu I, don't have that here. Need to get rid of the ball one step sooner need to realize I'm still GONNA get hit if I don't do this, he'll learn and he's played really really well through all that stuff. So I think a lean on the bengals they'll get out of the. They'll get the win that they nearly got a week ago browns at the cowboys cowboys are in first place Y- they have one win congrats. It's that divisions obviously just real tough beat up on each other. Little surprise line is so low with how strong the cowboys offenses. It's only four and a half points I. think the cowboys have no trouble at all going up and down the field on the on the browns as long as they're scoring touchdowns instead of field goals, I think is a big. Day for the cowboys and I just think that means. You'RE GONNA asking Baker Mayfield keep up and he built the towels cowboys defense terrible I still think he's to mistake prone re defense as well. Enough and now you're just banking on big runs from either hunt or more likely. Chubb. I think this is the cowboys winning cover. I completely agree I. I will probably bet this game this coming weekend. If you ask me, I just think that the cowboys offense is better than any other unit that is going to be out there. So then you said, do what they want saints in Lions Lions got the win on the last second field over the cardinals last week and drew brees threw short passes over the middle for the third straight week. We can just add that into the next podcast. We talk about the same possible that the saints fall to five hundred this week as four point favorites on the road at Matt Patricia Lines. No I'M GONNA say the saints still get the cover i. know the lines got a important win for Matt Patricia just to keep maybe quiet. The the people from saying he should be fired but I just. If the saints lose this game. There's going to be a lot of talk about what's going on in New Orleans, and if it's because drew is throwing the ball four yards every single time or behind the line of scrimmage. And they lose. Could we hear Jameson? Jumped right to that's smart play. You know taste some will get his eight tenths now let's let's give the ball to win. Winston. Yeah, you probably would hear you'd hear is this the end talk for his first before you hear who's getting the ball next Winston or hill I think the saints sneak out of Detroit with a hard-fought would was it was the saints are four point favorite yeah I I could see roughly right about that I think it's a saints win but they win late they win late on. A field goal and they don't cut recover. Then people will really see the saints for what they are, which is a mediocre football team with an extremely seasoned veteran record setting quarterback who can throw the football down the field anymore and with any confidence and with. So little confidence he literally never does it I mean maybe he'll do it a couple of times this week, but he almost never throws the ball down the field that the lions offense is starting to get healthy they're getting their wide receivers back they're getting. Adrian Peterson is Figuring out the offense you know he just came in right at the end of the preseason while training camp whatever you WanNa call it and started, and he took a bunch of carries that week one loss to the bears. So I think that. They can definitely keep a close and I think the lion's not going to say they're going to. Go on this run but they're gonNA keep a lot of games closer than. We were thinking just imagine if de'andre swift could catch this is two and one hundred percent. So it's not at all. They just got their first win barely ended the game last play and yet they're that close to having to wins in three weeks dropped that ball in the opening week on what should've been a game winning touchdown seahawks at the Dolphins I think the seahawks pretty much shown everybody what they are, and that is a dominant force offensively with the best quarterback in football of fourteen touchdowns in three weeks, all three games have been four touchdown passes or more Four Russell Wilson see no reason that type of play doesn't continue Dolphins aren't a pushover but dolphins don't have enough talent yet a win and a cover is that A. That is a noon game I. Guess the only thing for the dolphins you hope that Seattle's just off on their times traveling all the way across the country and they don't get up for the game is earliest as they should because. Seattle is just on a roll right now that defense is not very good but. That offense. Has Been better than basically anybody can the FITZ. Patrick Dolphins. Offense big play them into the game. Can they do? They have the players to to make those plays against that seahawks defense? There may be a couple of them but not enough of mind for them to keep up de que metcalf is a monster ask what a monster oops play. It was close. To yards I? Got A love hate next from Sean Jackson I would have been probably getting my ass kicked but I would have went and found him because that would have cost me quite a bit of money if they didn't throw that last touchdown of the game to seal it for me and to to him. Yeah. To him I had 'cause I, had Russ and him, and that fumble cost me points in a fan duel. League I do each week with somebody's that has some money on. It that probably shouldn't be wagering, but the the last touchdown saved it. So I didn't have to you know go find decay chargers and box chargers continuing to roll with Justin Herbert and the buccaneers have improved each week with Tom, Brady at quarterback defense is pretty good. Probably, no discussion about them because all the focus is on Brady gronk Evans and everybody else they have. But their defense has played pretty good football have also improved on a weekly basis big number at seven not huge. But I think the box both win and cover and get to three and one yeah I, I agree with you I think all that the guy who's played really well and their defense, the rookie Antwon Winfield. Brady's talked about him multiple times. Dude everywhere on the field background ready to play from day one every time I wear in practice and we're going to get the one. He's just there no matter what it is and. He's really stepped up and helped that young secondary that really struggled in years past because they're front sevens pretty solid. But it was there back in that's young and they've added some guys so. Good for him in that team, like you said, is getting better and if they continue and remember they're still banged up, they're going to be without Chris one. But To me, it really doesn't matter if this just keeps getting better at, you're going to be scary COMPLA-. Often I thought there was a chance when with the fortieth pick in the draft, the Houston Texans select I thought we were going to hear Houston from the Woodland's Antoine. Winfield. We didn't and he ended up going five picks later He's obviously had a slightly bigger positive impact than Ross blacklock. Slightly, being slightly as quotes Ross up to about twenty four snaps this year. Yeah. We he should be back on the field this week. Anthony Weaver basically said, he took his his lumps, his punishment, his he paid his debt. I. Think we're Anthony's words about why he was inactive past week for the Texans in their game that had zero hard. So you're gonNA I well, third round pick and he play I. Think because of how much time he missed camp it's. Slowed him but your belongings everything I, I wish I could go to practice every day and tell you this can as long as he's been practicing the last three weeks in getting ready for games. This should be about the time where he's no longer inactive there too many other players that are active each week that either aren't contributing or aren't needed and I know there's you always want to have a cushion at certain spots if you already have five active receivers. Absolutely, no reason for Kiki T to be active. Even if you're worried about willful worried about someone going down in a game, you have enough other players up if you're and I have three running backs up this week, which I assume they will, it's not given. That size will be active if Duke is, but I would have him active since Duke was just coming back and we just told you about how you're running David. Johnson. into the ground by having him on. The field for every single play so that at least would be one spot where you could put him back out there. Watkins was technically active last week you could say in place of black lock Andy had a sack new so I don't know if you immediately reversed that but yes, maybe this week Texans rookie, we'll take a snap on offense or defense. They did not last week the Ravens are staying close to home they're playing at the football team this weekend. Ravens might be a little upset about their Monday night showing yeah. That's they're going to be an angry football team and they're going to take it out on this Washington football team. They're terrible offense Dwayne Haskins I, mean, you can see when he throws the ball sometimes you'd be like that's why this kid was drafted. So high the arm talent is there but. Then, there's times where you can be like that's why I felt the fifteen. He wasn't a top five pick because that decision making or just trying to force that in there and they just don't have a ton of talent. It's Terry. McLaren. And that's kind of it on that offense the defense wheel talk about their defensive line but now they're minus chase you. Oh yeah, it's a big deal I. think it wasn't a blueprint by any means what the? Chiefs did to Lamar Jackson they were just able to keep them uncomfortable and did things that made that offense look bad. They didn't make Mark Andrews dropped the ball. So often they didn't make those guys drop passes and I can't quite say young's a big reason why? Like you mentioned that the Redskins can do similar things but they put as much pressure out of their base as just about anybody in the league I don't think it's going to be an easy day for Lamar Jackson I don't think it's going to be a blow out and I I wanNA pick the skins. The football team to cover the two touchdowns read the numbers. Their fourteen point dog in their own building. That's basically a reference to the fact nobody thinks Gore on the ray rice. Yeah. I would look at it. You know the line, the line would concern me know I was thinking. Ten to thirteen points. So maybe I would probably stay away from this game just because the line is so big but. You know if you WanNa just some quick easy money just throw money on the ravens money on. A. Little. Bit. Cardinals and Panthers Panthers are now no longer winless and the cardinals are now under undefeated a week ago at this time on it's game time podcast somebody was thrown around five and no for the Arizona Cardinals I was. Somebody's both of us I want both the it looked like their schedules suggested they were going to get there and that's a little too much faith in team that hadn't done it before and quite honestly even though De'andre Hopkins's putting up numbers that are out of this world and that's not going to stop. He still plays the quarterback who's very new to the league and that's was on display in game he should not be taking that many chances. You'RE GONNA, win this game against the Lions. If you do the right thing and the right thing isn't throwing the football, the lions three times, which he did prevents them from being undefeated coming into this game. But I'm just not a big fan of what the panthers have talent was. It's not even on bridgewater and they're clearly playing without McCaffrey I. Think it hamstrings them a lot. They've limited if any talent defensively and yet they've actually held up. I think this is week though where between Drake and Hopkins And cuyler I think they're going to be a couple of big plays here. Plenty of offense for the cardinals to win and cover the three and a half. Yeah. I definitely think they cover this three and a half that line is is. Pretty Damn small I just think. I get cliff. Loves. His new toy in De'andre and you know keiler is getting better. But I still want to see the same run the damn ball more I mean you have Kenyan drake who's really good. He ran the ball eighteen times last week but only chase edmunds gives while he was good last year he came in and he did some good things as a rookie last year utilize that guy more especially in the run game and. Cuyler can be utilized in the run game as well. He's good at not taking hits that we talked about Joe Borough he's really good at sliding getting down kind of like a Russell Wilson type. So utilize the ground game more and I think that's can propel the cardinals to be in a much better team but they should have no problem with the Panthers Rams at home for the winless giants and two touchdowns. Thirteen points to be exact is what the line is for the rams and I think that's a very good line I think it's a game. The Rams will win and cover The Rams showed how poten their offense can be even on a on a poor afternoon down twenty eight to three, and then bolting back with four scores to take the lead on the bills the Jared Goff from their super bowl season. Might not have even been as good as the Jared Goff that we've seen so far. This season healthy group of players for him has been a big deal woods and cup and need to probably see more of higby. Zone and just there, and I think they're in great shape to put a ton of points, the giants without Barclay and with everybody knowing all you have to do is put pressure on Daniel Jones and that's the ballgame. That's literally exactly what's going to happen in this game. Yeah. Aaron Donald Going to have fun game. He's obviously probably the best defensive player in football. But? Yeah this game is going to be close. To New York teams are going to be fighting it out for Trevor Lawrenson that number one pick I mean. But one of them just took darnold and the other one took Jones even more recently no matter don't matter who which if either one of those teams get it and they pass on. Trevor. Lawrence. and trading take if you want to do that and it's such a hall fine but. I mean if Trevor Lawrence is as good as I think he is, and as good as everybody else says he is. You don't. Passing on him is not an option. Yeah. You can't. You gotta either take him and say. Here you go off on pick for Daniel Jones. If you WANNA to here's Sam Darnold for a third or fourth round pick, you can have them. You can't pass on them if if someone were to come up and save the panthers or whoever. Come up and say, here's four first round picks my gosh. Could just by the right exactly. That's what I mean. So then then you're talking about something but. It's just they're both so bad so bad. Yeah. Impressive stuff from from the rams so far this season I do think they have become what looks like a threat in the NFC they're not the best thing the probably not the second best team but matching up against them in a playoff game with their offense, they might very well be someone you don't. WanNa see Patriots at the chiefs probably the most entertaining match up of. The, week chiefs keep on rolling really impressive on Monday night against the Ravens mahomes turned in his best game of the three so far this season but a typical, you can't stop me type of performance. No matter what you WANNA do out there both throwing and running with the football scrambling into positive plays and I think the Patriots are settled in on being one of the top there probably one of the top four teams the. AFC But they're not quite at this level and you're now going to need you need somebody else for to throw the football to for them to keep up in games like this even while their defense is good, do they have to score the after throw the ball? He can throw the ball. The Ataman plenty that there's somebody else has to step for they have signs somebody gotTa have faith in somebody on their roster somebody else Has To, be a legitimate throw downfield target beyond eshelman settlements not GonNa last this whole season anyway with the punishment that he normally takes. So somebody else's capable of being a reliable target I. Think they do a great job of utilizing their backfield personnel. You Know One week from Mitch Sony, Michelle, and another week birkhead you mix them into the passing game clue but most of that, still the underneath stuff cams been good cams gonNA. Again if healthy, this will be a very good team. There's not quite as good as the chiefs. Yeah. I just think the chiefs have shown through. You look back I mean I know the chargers game, but they just didn't play a good game they just. Their offensive line. Play terrible game against Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram and that front of the chargers, and that's what kept the chargers in the game and They bounce back and had a really good game there cheese offensive line I expect them to not have much of a problem with this patriots front seven and that's the difference when. Win Mahomes is upright enabled to just make plays with his feet and his arm. That's when they just run away from teams and I think that's what they're gonNA do and show everybody. We beat the hell out of the Texans we beat the hell out of the Ravens, and now we've beat the hell out of the Patriots. Yeah, we had the little hiccup against the chargers. We won that game still because of Patrick Mahomes we are clearly the best team in the AFC, and then you talk about us that we're the best team in the NFL despite what the seahawks are doing bills and raiders bills are on the road as a field goal. Favorite. I actually think this is kind of a big deal for the three and bills. If they get a win here, they're moved forno and it won't matter as much if they stumble the next two weeks at the titans, which hopefully gets played and then they have a huge game against the chiefs. At home in Buffalo. But if they go to the Vegas Raiders Homefield this week and lose, and now they're three and one with those two game staring at him. Maybe a young team young quarterbacks starts thinking a little bit and i. do think they're thinking about it already heading into this week. Which is why I'm calling for the Vegas upset really. Okay. I see I. Think they know. Listen they got lucky last week a pass interference call Kinda. Gave them that game play that in a call that should not have happened in my opinion. But I think they know think Sean McDermott knows that they need to win this game because of what you just said I think Josh Allen is stepping up he's making plays for this offense. defined digs has been a monster pickup for this team completely worth the trade and I'm going to take the bills I. think they get the job done here and had to Vegas to the new stadium and and take care the raiders, the Eagles and niners that's the banged up eagles and the banged up niners I'll take the banged up niners to keep the eagles winless. It's a to me. That's. The Nick Mullins is not a battle player I and Cal Shan is one of the best scheming things up for players that you don't know who the hell they are. I, mean really ought to rip the names off of the back of jerseys of the forty niners running backs 'cause it really doesn't as long as it's not Coleman it really doesn't matter because all these other guys can break big plays. They're great out of the backfield and they keep producing and I don't see any reason why that stops this week. Pretty big. Number Nick mullins NFL starting quarterback as a seven point. Favorite Act. That's what's on the table for this. Wow I didn't realize it was a bit I. Think the Eagles might stay within the number because they have had some competitive games but they made too many mistakes to win them. I think. Same thing probably happens here take forty niners but eagles cover Monday night football is at the last game in the head coaching career at the Falcons for Dan Quinn, his Falcons or seven, and a half point dogs at Lambeau on Monday night. This game. The only reason I say. The only reason this game could be close 'cause Atlanta's offense can put up some points but what I think it's going to end up looking like is a lot like week one Green Bay Minnesota and what you mentioned it earlier Minnesota had got some hollow points at the end that made it what forty, three, thirty, four, and the score looked a little bit closer than the game really was. I think that's what you're going to see here. You're going to see the packers do what they've been doing all season long put up a ton of points and then you'll have Atlanta. Matt Ryan throwing the team not back into the game but back to make it a a score where you say, Oh, that score was a lot closer than I. thought it. would be what's the number on zone and a half I would still pick the packers to cover I would to packers get to foreign rogers plays well, again against the Falcons defense how is that possible? Of course? It's possible. They Stink Falcons that'll do it. That's a run through the NFL. We got the Texans delivering you their first win of the season we.

Texans trade DeAndre Hopkins to Cardinals in blockbuster deal - Emergency Podcast (Football 3/16)

"This might be one of the wildest like opening free agent like tampering window newly gear trade. You'll ever see because the Houston Texans who were without a GM run by bill. O'brien have traded De'andre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals. Four David Johnson. In addition the Houston. Texans will get a second round pick and the teams swapped fourth round picks and we were actually recording the show when this news broke. Here's our reaction. Oh Yeah Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring. So maybe bill. O'brien is not a horrible general manager. I told you we had to wait. I can't believe I was the only one that liked what he did. So anyway. So let's get to the point. The Andre Agassi. We beat he's Arbel Jenner manager the the Arizona cardinals were. They're giving up the Audrey Hopkins and taking David Johnson. Ambrosia horrible Jenner. Magistrate of the celebration. Brennan was and then give you guys some shock. Time deandre Hopkins going so now. The Texans are losing De'andre Hopkins paying all of David Johnson salary. If Bill O'Brien doesn't fire himself as general manager like by tomorrow than the Texas got to do something. This is insane so just just to clarify ought to you were they. Were giving up whether getting Johnson was already a terrible deal but to add to it they are straight away the best receiver in football. Are they getting for rebuilding onto SEAN WATSON'S ROOKIE DEAL? What are they doing? David Johnson playing wide receiver. Remember when I joked that they were trying to Laremy? Tunsil affirmed picking the Shawn Watson. Not that far off. Not that far off. They had to be getting first round picks back. They have to be if they're not then. This is an unmitigated is he is he is he. Is He still working for the Patriots? According to John Maclean Houston Chronicle Deandre Hopkins in a fourth round. Pick go to the cardinals for David. Johnson. A second rounder in fourth rounder. That's terrible deal for those fourth router is next year. The second rounders this year. So they're they're getting. They're giving away the Andre Hopkins in the fourth round. Pick David Johnson and second round pick this year and they'll get a fourth next year that is horrific and they're taking on David Johnson's full salary. I mean I don't WanNa be jerk reaction here but that might be the worst trade of all time. So basically the Texans picked up the Texans basically got an extra second round pick and traded David Johnson and Deandre Hopkins. Straight up since the fourth picks. Kind of cancel each other out. David Johnson Dodger Hopkins almost straight up. So basically the Texas got David Johnson. The second round pick deandre Hopkins. And you're getting Hopkins for three more years left on his deal right so you don't even have to give him a new contract right now. Is Major League Baseball punishing the Houston? Texans like what is what is going on. Why don't and also I mean we're ripping the Texans. What a great. You don't last twenty minutes for the Arizona cardinals incredible. They don't David Johnson salary and got the Andrea Hopkins back. Do you think other. Nfl take kidding me. Other health teams are going to pay to put it in phone lines at the at the Houston. Hq just so they can get through bill. O'brien because I guarantee you fifteen other teams. They're trying to call. Houston and work out a deal Bill Bryan but he was on the phone with. Steve and I just want to make it clear. I am giving Bill O'Brien and I was going to twist this around the say I was in his favor. Read the terms of this trade shipping off the Hopkins. And saying I'm off the Bill O'Brien bandwagon. This is this is literally insane. The big winner right away. Those Murray you know how John Jay Hopkins Larry Fitzgerald. Who's dying to get back to the playoffs? It's been so long. He's GONNA retire soon. You have Christian. Kerr you have tenure drake. I mean this offense could be insane. Nfc West is loaded by the way. Great News Brinson back to tweeting. Nonsense I would. I liked him better and didn't tweet. Tweet is actually pretty funny. You're doing this on everybody. From the BRINGER tweeted bill. O'brien's work from home. Stint OFF TO. A bad start. That's really good. I I don't I don't get stunned into silence much. I don't know what's so what on Earth would possess you to do this trade. Well good news is. He doesn't have to talk to the media so he doesn't explain himself so the thing is. I would say dumping money but then they just add it all that money by bringing in David Johnson Trading Andre Hopkins and just brought in draft picks. Because you want to get cheaper and add draft picks. I could at least maybe justify that but picking up a worse talent who cost just as much money. So you're not saving anything on the salary cap and you're really getting plus a second round pick. I mean this is not. I don't want to call it the worst trade in the past ten years but I mean it's all about the worst trade in the past fifty years this is. I mean this is bad as like the Babe Ruth Trade. What what do you think is this? Is this worse than the Herschel. Walker cheat or the or the the Ricky Williams draftee trade. This is a terrible terrible terrible trade and less. There's a mystery first round pick or a couple mystery first round picks. There's no excuse for this trade hopkins. It might be the best wide receiver football. He's under contract. David Johnson is a back who clearly has lost a step in his dealt with injuries. And you just pay and you've got a second round pick in return by what is happening. Now Bill Brandt GonNA sign Antonio Brown. You heard it here first. And there's no structure. They're the only person that can fire. Bill O'Brien is the owner. And if he did the whole organization would go to turmoil because they don't really have a front office they have bill. O'brien pulling the strings on everything and he just set the strings on fire. You know what the Texans should. Just sit out the twenty twenty season everywhere. This team just winter the playoffs. I mean this is. This is insane. It's funny because I was trying to. I was like breach. I was up before the Hopkins News broke. I was GonNa but in like you know what? Maybe the Texans are going to pick back. It's like the the Osler deal right there. Eating David Johnson salary and they're low on draft picks and the Indus rounds of Shawn Watson with more weapons like the Andre Hopkins. And maybe they'll get a second round pick back and then it turns out. They're giving away their best player. Not Named Shawn Watson Pick I. I don't I don't know I don't know man. I mean like the like honestly this. I said right before reaction. This is honestly one of the craziest drafting bills. This strikes me remember when it was was it. Sam Bradford traded the rams for Nick foles and it was like whoa like Jimmy Grand for maxine trade but this is way bigger because a there's no GM in place in Houston Biller Brian as Jason Lockenfora notes. On twitter we'll just dump anybody. He's on the outs worth dwayne Brown for peanuts. And he didn't in order to get a running back in return for a team that's offensive line. Isn't that great like and it? Just it's just it's crazy than those other trainings. Because one team got completely fleeced like what? What is Your Reaction Sean? If you're Steve Time and you get a call Saharan Bill O'Brien David Johnson's like all right cool. You know. We give us a fifth round. Pick and pay salaries. How about Deandre Hopkins? I think you. I think you're like bill. April Fools Day is still two weeks away and let's let's remember like this is a stupid team. That is behaving stupid for a long time. Let's recap what they've done last year. Which was they fire that right? They fired a GM don't replace. They want to go get the Patriots. Gm get caught tampering. So they can't do that because the Patriots are like. Yeah you try to do that. Robert Kraft House at our ring ceremony. We're not letting that fly. We're going to go after you unless you withdraw. So they withdraw. They got jumped in the draft for the past blocking offense to tackle that they desperately needed by team. That put him on the bench so they groom them for later. They never hired the. Gm traded clowney for players. Don't play off into the line and then they overpaid for good but not great left tackle. This is so this is not a team. Just doing one stupid move. This is the culmination of a lot of terrible moves and this is probably the stupidest one they've done which is really saying what. I'm literally waiting for news to break that. The Texans have traded to Shawn Watson to the Patriots to bears for a sixth round. Pick because everyone's getting fleeced this bill. O'brien just giving people away. And you know as I was saying at some point I was about to defend bill. O'brien if he brought in David Johnson got a second round pick brock osweiler type deal where they were. GonNa get draft picks. Take this money off. The cardinals salary cap. That isn't that crazy because the Texans needed some draft picks But now this is just bonkers. I mean this this is f minus. There's not even a great for this from the Texans Perspective and I love it when the news of this trade broke it was. Oh look the Texans traded for David Johnson says somebody in Houston was leaking out like. Hey We got David Johnson. And you know the reporters. Would you give up to David Johnson? Like oh don't worry about it. We Got Josh. We are taxed for next year. We got a great deal. Don't worry about what we gave up. And all the sudden twenty minutes later the other key part of that deal comes out. And it is d Andre Hopkins leaving which is insane by the way. This is even more embarrassing for bill. Brian Number One Jason Lockenfora. I tweeted out that apparently bill. O'brien in Hopkins run the outs quote unquote. So that's part of the reason that he wanted to get rid of them which is completely idiotic if you're running a daycare center and you hate one of your employees triple kids find fire that person. This football number two according to Over the CAP in Amari Cooper Probably GonNa get nineteen twenty million dollars a year when he whenever he signed just deal here are a new hopkins. Cap Hits Twenty twenty fourteen million twenty twenty one fifteen million three to thirteen point nine million so this is an F. He's the best wide receiver football signed to a team in the contract. Like what are you? What like Brian? Just through Steve. Time the biggest life preserver in the history of life preservers and Steve is gonNA float right to the shore and be a hero well and another thing too right. We talked about this on the mock draft. Podcast how I wouldn't be opposed if like the cardinals. Were sitting there in the draft and CD land fell to them and they got CD land because they really needed like a number one wide receiver. Kyle Murray a now. You could still do that. And you would have CD lamb deandre hopkins and watched the the F- out Kenyan Drake. His was pretty. Good out of the Backfield Be Now if you're the cardinals you can go into the draft in the first round and not worry about getting a wide receiver there because you can now take you can now focus on the offensive line and let me ask you guys this. You look at a team like the packers. The forty niners drafting at the bottom of the first round. They both I think we agree. Need wide receivers. Do you think they would have been willing to give up their first round? Pick if they knew the Andre Hopkins was available. Yes absolutely and it's like. Hey Listen I know you. Don't David Johnson that gives you back with how Aaron Rodgers other bet The Patriots will give up to per from fixed-rate Hawkins and not even think twice about it like bill. O'brien left so much on the table here. Dra Hopkins in at least one first round. Pick instead you have it. Running back isn't good. Been GOOD FOR THREE YEARS. And you've got maybe a second round pick. You got the second pick. You don't know where it's going to be. I mean this is just it's total bonkers by the way breach. That's a good point. The cardinals suddenly. I guess the second round pick is this year. So that's already there picked but that fourth round pick I would expect the cardinals to make a substantial leap forward this year after they infuse your rousers more talent in the draft and they just got dehydrate Hopkins. Obviously that worked round pick. I mean it's already a low pick but it's not going to be at the top of the fourth round anymore. I imagine so Bucky Brooks who works for. Nfl DOT COM and longtime scout former U. C. Grad Yup. Yup just tweeted out that Bill O'Brien must think they can get one of these wide receivers in the draft. Well the issue is they don't have a first round pick and they pick fifty seven and now forty and ninety. Are you gonNA package those three picks to move up around one to get Gerry? Judah your CD lamb and then forgo all the other needs. I mean this is. There's no way to paint. I explained to me if you're bill. O'brien how you're selling this to the to the ownership like what's the rosy spin on this the rosy spin is? I ONE DIVISION LAST YEAR. So you listen to what? I say okay because there's no rosy spin that's it that's all you got. Just trust me look what I did last year when I won a playoff game. I mean there's no way to spend this but that's that's about the only way I can think and just to be clear. All of us would rather pick the other Hopkins Wide Receiver Bill. O'brien coach right. Like if you were in charge and you gotta keep one if they can't go exist. You're firing Bill Ryan. I don't care who you're hiring. Abc Andrea Hopkins Stephen O. R. Sportsline do just send out the simulations for before and after Hopkins were the NFC West so before the trade The Texans were simulated to win. Seven point eight games. They are down to seven games. Nearly a full game is what Hopkins is worth to that team. And this numb nut decided to trade him for a second round. Pick and take on. Oh and then I also includes getting David Johnson. So He's worth more than a game so David. Oh my God this is what a slap in the face. Great Great tweet from fruit of the program. Adam rank who wilson. I've known for years and years David Johnson for deandre Hopkins get veto to most fantasy leagues or the team managers banned for life. Wrong like you pull that trade in the Dynasty League note dude throw the first time picking their. Let's go on record. Who wants more games? The cardinals or the Texans went to the playoffs last year. And just because the cardinals are I think in the toughest division in the NFL. That's tough I still like this door. Brian. It's like. He's playing a game with himself. He's lets players. I can give away still win the AFC south if the Colts signed Philip rivers. I'll take the cardinals and Alan because I think that I think that you're gonNA see Seattle's is still a good team but you know we got to see what they doing free agency. I think a little bit of a step back They signed Carson. We'll have more on that in a recap show long deal The stuff is happening all over the place And then the rams. We still have a lot of questions about that team. I thought cliff. Kingsbury made substantial strides down the stretch in terms of his Game Management and is coaching his offensive. And how he operated. And and the idea dre Hawkins. You're probably GONNA give offensive Lineman in the draft You know you you signed. D J Humphries bring back some consistency. Cuyler Murray's deep ball looks like it's an elite throw like he's an elite pass like the NFL. Throws you have out there like Aaron Rodgers to the sidelines Hash and all that I. It just feels like this team is on the rise. They asked him good defensive players and the Houston might be the third best team division. If you take away the Andre Hopkins. They're going to try and pound the ball Johnson. Like they're not the that's not going to work. But you're actively making life harder for the Shawn Watson Watson. I'm furious right now and I was wondering should I sign a long term deal with this team and I would not do that. But he came out supportability Brian. He's like I don't care what all of these other people say as always that Dude's my coach. He's my house before he shipped away his his best player. Let me say this about Deandre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald Real Quick. Pf has been tracking pro. Football Focus has been tracking the drop rate for receivers since two thousand six to was drop rates of anyone with more than five hundred targets. De'andre Hopkins in Larry Fitzgerald Literally. Cuyler Murray is going to throw you. Just throw Hail Mary Pass in. One of those two is going to catch. It is throw the ball up and it doesn't matter I mean if you're Kyle Murray this is this.

FTP Ep. # 163: Day 2 of NFL Wildcard Weekend

"Welcome to the fantasy Throwdown podcast bringing you the latest sports news fantasy analysis and opinions don't forget the hot takes and have Hort show without heartaches these days. What about hotcakes though, I want some odd case? Now, here's your host ready to jump into the thick of things Dwayne calendar. Morning. Welcome to the show quite a bit happened yesterday. We had some NFL playoff action some duds of matchups for the most part. But all I can say am I glad I did not play NBA DFS last night because it would have been ugly mainly because the Golden State Warriors in the Sacramento Kings managed to break the slate with just a ridiculous game of basketball last night that I only managed to catch the highlights of. But basically the warriors won one twenty seven one twenty three. And again that broke the NBA record for three pointers with forty one forty one three pointers made let me just sink that in for you, folks. Forty one three points most NBA games, even with the shooting increase, Mozambique games as less than twenty five three pointers mate. So forty one is just getting. Re ridiculous levels of just chucking it up there. It was the first time ever that both teams that a game may twenty three's the kings made a franchise record twenty three pointers Steph curry had ten three pointers on route to a forty point game. But he healed had eight three pointers which was made it the first time in an NBA game. Two players may board at eight threes. You know again. Is so crazy game that happened last night in the NBA? And you know, it's just a blip on the radar screen for the most part. I mean would team shooting three pointers at this high clip? You know, the offense websites are actually going to have to start thinking about some of the metrics used the score games. Because like if you didn't have exposure to the warriors you kings. You're done last night. You were absolutely done dead in the water don't even bother playing because you just contributed to the overlay and the context that you paid out for there's no getting around it with that many three pointer said, I mean, you're you're toast, and it like. I mean, honestly, I it's it's just to observe oh, I mean twenty three pointers between squads. I mean, man just incredible die of living in the NBA. It's Gary because no one can play a liquor defense because you can't even touch someone. 'cause I saw the clip of James harden somehow getting getting three free throws when he was not actually contacted by defender and flopped when his own man brushed against him and the referee still gave continuation on a shot after a heart and had already put up the shot. You know, again, I can't live MBA reps right now. It's it's just getting to point of absurdity that you know, is better left for another day. But let's get into it with the NFL action yesterday. Just a mess of an. Opening game once again because it's the Houston Texans who are clearly clearly in need of a new head coach 'cause billow Bryant will never get them. They're the Texans fall to the Indianapolis Colts twenty one to seven and that seven was on what amounted to garbage time because the tax it's still were without points in the fourth quarter. But you know, just to kind of give rundown of how fraudulent this Texans team is because her schedule thirteen of the sixteen regular season games that the Texans were involved in featured these quarterbacks Brock Osweiler Blaine gabbert, Blake Bortles, code Gessler. Marcus mariota cope McCoy, Alex Smith, case keenum, Peter man, Dak Prescott ally, man. Manning Josh Allen Sam darnold Baker Mayfield, Nick foles. And you know, it's just you run down the list. There's a reason why this Texas team made the playoffs that is one of the weakest schedules. You'll ever see in NFL history. And yet still folks were surprised at the taxes being as of being at home favourite were shut out at halftime twenty one nothing. The only thing that was surprising to me was the fact that the Texans couldn't figure out how to attack a Tampa two defense. The play calling is atrocious. The show Watson is basically having to make stuff up on the fly and just scramble out of situations. Now, it's embarrassing for a team to be so unprepared for their opponent. And again, it's a division game. You play these team two times a year. This is your third time. Play each time. You played the colts the Texas managed to get worse on offense that's coaching like the colts had the Texas figured out in the Texas never adjusted. I I don't know what else you could say to that. But you need a new head coach. But you know, again, Bill Brian manages to scape that much criticism because people just pointing saying, oh, look how many games he won. He can't actually just to anything else that's going up. So when people make up this nonsense about Mike Tomlin, not knowing access. The knows. I I want them to show me where somebody's other coaches know, what the hell they're talking about. Because I see I see teams all the time that can't manage the way out of a paper bag, and it it's constant with the Texans. I've been railing on a Bill Brian for years now about how unqualified he is to be NFL head coach and no many tangent. So that's how you know more often than not that a lot of the media coverage that happens for somebody seems is very scripted because. Again, there's an agenda being pushed and a narrator being pushed by some folks that want to get certain messages out there. But if we're being perfectly Asif ourselves here that colts team is not very good. They're really not. I mean, the chiefs losing that game next week is gonna be on Andy Reid because the chiefs by all accounts should have been able to at least glean a few things from watching the colts this year because they are terrible against tight ends which Houston apparently did not get the memo because they ran no actual a place for their individual tight ends the teeth still have trust Kelsey who's the best catching Pat tight end in the league. And you know now for nothing. As bad as the chiefs defenses. The colts are good pass blocking team. They do they have improved as a run blocking team this year. But the the biggest thing is is that the colts one of run play action. The cheese. Biggest obstacle for next week is the fact that they can't get happy getting into a shootout. And I know they'll wanna think that they can outscore anyone but realistically the chiefs to be serious about winning Super Bowl this year. It's about ball control and managing the clock and not putting your defense in the position to fail. Because if you give Andrew luck more possessions more place to run against the chiefs defense that is the path to victory for the colts. They have to kind of get more possession of the football. So getting into shootout plays into the colts hands. There is no offense of buts about it. The chiefs should be able to win next week. But again, I have no confidence in and read. So I wanna see what that line ends up being at for the colts. Because to me that's one of the more interesting place that we could end up seeing the Colton AFC title game because of a classic Andy Reid a blunder in the postseason. All right. So in the nightcap, we had the Cowboys defeat the Seahawks twenty four twenty two A, basically, this was a strange one because. The long ensured it was is that Seattle lost their kicker. Sebastian Janikowski at the end of the first half due to a pulled hamstring as the trying to attempt the fifty seven yard field goal, and at that point the Seahawks, basically screwed himself because this was a game where it was always going to be a defensive struggle. I talked about that before I expected the hip, but because Jim mccaskey was out of the game. So without T Basser Seattle was stuck in a position where they had to keep going for it. And I give credit to Russell Wilson for keeping that game as close as it was because the Cowboys defense shut down the Seattle running game completely Chris Carson was a non factor. Seattle. Couldn't do anything running the football and realistically there. There wasn't anything that Seattle could've done outside of force turnovers because again. Again, offensively the Seahawks are pretty limited overall in terms of what they can do because you know, outside of getting a couple of deep past place. You're not gonna get that many chances to take a take care of business. And you know, yes, Dak Prescott through pick. But realistically Seattle. Need a win the turnover battle decisively. They just they just did not get enough in the way of of changing field position. Just changing the mindset because again from the long short it like outside of the one sec Frank Clark hat. I the really wasn't that many. There wasn't that much pressure on Dak Prescott there four QB hits the entire game. You know? That's not a lot it realistically. Seattle needed a little bit more for new defense. They didn't play bad. The just didn't play great. And you know, one those sort of things happen. I mean. That's just kinda way it breaks out in order win a road playoff game. You gotta do just a little bit more than what we got out of Seattle. And yes, they had a bad break with sea bass going down with the pulled hamstring. But you know, at the end of the day, you know, it's just it's an unforgiving Business Times. In Seattle just didn't do enough. Now's my whole concern about Seattle in the first place was I didn't see enough in the tank with the Seahawks team to make a difference. And you know, I would say one of the things that Seattle can add to kind explore in the offseason. This was more of a rebuilding year for Seattle anyway. But I just think that they need to get a little bit more dynamic on offense. Maybe like get another a pass catcher, that's a more reliable. Because again, you know, the ball wins getting up there in Asia and with his injuries this year. It made it more parent that the Seattle truly needs like Baldwin Baldwin just a turn dirty. So it it's one of those words you have to start thinking who's going to become the number one receiver on net squad going forward. I don't think it's locking. I think lock. It's still more of a change of pace guy would be suitable as a number two. But now the number one guy. You know, if you bring back Baldwin, maybe gotta figure out, you know, do we try to go down around of getting another dynamic tight end again, even though Jimmy Graham didn't pan out. You know, something on Seattle's gotta change. It's just that offense is just too limited. And they don't have any game changers. In the running back position. Like offense. Wind has to be dominant for that running game to truly take over games. Just 'cause again shod penny. Maybe he's the guy down the road. But outside of that one running yet, you was a non factor in a as I said, Chris Carson couldn't get anything going at all last night. So. We'll see how Dallas looks moving. Forward of the the fact that matter as we don't know in terms of who Dallas is going to be playing next week. I mean, it could be the Rams. It could end up being that they that they go up against the saints. But we'll we'll see we'll see how the the bears game goes. But you know, Dallas did just enough to win. I mean, nothing to impressive the defense sitter thing. And the offense kinda stayed out of the way in didn't didn't muck up the process by making critical turnovers in on their own ended field real really? So that's pretty much it for the game itself. But let's get into the Sunday matchups because a run a little low on time here. But in terms of the match ups today again, I talked about this chargers. Traveling for one o'clock game is just criminal. When you really think about it? Like, the NFL really screwed the chargers here. I think the charges are the better team. And the fact. That they've played actually helps the charges in my opinion, just be prepared for Baltimore's often. So I think this is going to be low scoring realistically. This game comes down to can Philip rivers. Not force the ball into bad situations. Trying to make something happen can fill rivers just be patient and let the game developed. That's the biggest thing because the last time I face a three weeks ago, you had Melvin Gordon hell to less than four yards a carry and just could not get the ball moving at all. And couldn't break one. The buzzer was very disciplined to be honest. Los Angeles has to be more careful in terms of how they manage to often. So the chargers have to stay patient, and it can't force the issue forcing the issue. That's going to be an automatic L. I will say that outright. Even though the ravens don't force that may turnovers when they do get up. They will make you pay and the chargers cannot fall into that trap. So Phil burgers gotta behave himself, and they're going to need a big time form, it's out of Melvin Gordon. But we'll see how the game goes in terms of. Fantasy impact for players. I really dig about what you would get out of. Melvin Gordon here to me. This is not any as I said before it's not a cash game play today. I just don't like cash cash tournaments at all. I think there's a GP in you lead the cash games at at. Well, basically you jumped the cash gains for the rest of the postseason to be honest. Because again with limited slates it's harder to get vantage on teams. So you're better off just playing you're torn amounts than anything else. But going going through this again, I just I just had to say that you know, if you doing anything out of cash, then you can go with Lamar Jackson, but for the ravens, but you know, I'm I'm not I'm not big on cash games this week. So or the rest of the rest of the postseason. Said is just one of those where? You know, we're gonna have to take a pass. In terms of the wide receivers. Again, I'm not big on my receivers this week. I just think that this is going to be a low scoring game. A Keenan alum will look to bounce back because he got hurt last time out against I mean last time out against the ravens. But I don't see a whole lot coming out of the passing game. That's why say felt is just gonna have to learn to be patient here. And that force the issue if he forces the issue, then he's going to put his teammates in a bad spot because I can easily see going sideways four Fordham if they don't manage it correctly. But. Yeah. Outside of that. I I really don't like a whole lot of the wide receivers. You know, maybe take a punt on a Travis Benjamin. Just because charges might try to do some trick plays. And he seems to be more of the gadget type play receiver that they use for those set. So that's really it outside of that defenses. You know, either the fence on comfortable with between the ravens and chargers if you not paying up a top salary for the bears defense so moving onto the afternoon matchup. We got the bears hosting the eagles. And I talked about this before the biggest thing I have initiative with the bears. Is there play calling? Everyone keeps praising matinee in. I keep kind of scratching my head. 'cause I'm looking at them saying that in tight games Nagee has shown the Tennessee, the self-destruct similar do what you see out of Andy Reid. So i'm. I'm not gonna say sold on the bears yet because I've seen them just blow opportunities in the past this year. So the one thing I'll say about this is it sets up nicely for the eagles to play their underdog narrative. But and this is the big but due to the injuries that the bears have with their wide receiver core. And now the story is out that Trey Burton to former eagles tight end. Who's now playing for the bears. You know, now the story is that you know, Trey Burton is is questionable now with a groin injury. And you know, if Burton's not like getting added this late in the week is never a good sign for guys viability. So, you know, I'm not gonna have time to do a later. Swap today for the four o'clock gains. But I I have to look at this. As a case where you know, realistically, there's a good chance Burton doesn't play. And so that makes like paying up for Zakar, it's even more imperative downgrade the receivers where you have to but paying up for Burton to me is just full goal at this point like. E e can't can't do it at this stage. It's it's just not a good play my opinion at at this stage of the game with him being Adeniji injury report this late. It's almost never a good sign for guy to be added on that late and for him to actually see and play. Because even if he's active usually means that they're limited at a capacity. That's why they had to listen on the injury report in the first place. So not not too keen on that the bears were favored by five and a half points. You know, again, I don't trust the bears offense enough to actually cover that live because when the bears hold their opponents under twenty four points. They are twelve no when they score over twenty four points their own for now, I say this because Philly is going to keep trying to stretch the ball down the field and keep thrown on the bear. So this is either going to go one or two ways. Either Nichols is going to throw the eagles out of the game completely as I. Effect or it's gonna go where this ends up being a back and forth. Contest at the bears ended up dropping because they're just not to play the types of games and Nagy ends up about over thinking it it's growing as screwing this up. Now, again, I don't say that that this is a referendum on the bills being good. No, Nick foles is not a good quarterback. But in the system that they're playing this is the only system he can play in to stretch the ball down the field and just keep taking shots. So you know, you can have any number of things with referee flags getting involved for illegal contact or pass interference. The eagles are gonna keep taking shots down the field. Because to me, that's the only way they can win this game. They're not gonna be able to get it done Ryan to football against the bears defense. The only way to kind of get it done is just keep throwing the football at the bears. The. Bears. Get just trying to get the pressure with the front four. Let Khalil Mack do his thing. But the eagles just have to trust the that Nick foles can at least put the ball in spots where his guys can get to it and make place so at that's really what this game comes out through. So this could turn into complete route. Or it's going to be back at four fin that in tight one because the bears are not able to outpace team that's clicking on offense. So we'll see how it goes. But the definitely some interesting as scenarios that can play out today because I do see this as a case where. The matchups dictate that too. It's gonna be a tight throughout the game. So I'm very much interested in seeing how the playoffs shape off. But there's a very real chance that. All the teams that are playing today will be out of the playoffs by the end of next week. I'm just not sold on outs outside of the chargers. Ravens game. I'm not because the one thing that I had a fear about was if the winners game going into New England playing because even though I felt that these were the two SuperBowl contenders. They're usually is some difference about playing a grueling game today. So again, I'm very curious to see how this game goes. Because if the chargers ravens, like just go engage in slugfest. I'm wondering about what they'll have left in the tank just gets Melvin Gordon's banged up and Baltimore style play is not sustainable long term of for Lamar Jackson. So very much curious to see how it all shakes out. But I'm gonna leave it there for the show. I mean, it's only two games late. So you're pretty much left with a couple of Dr throws. But as I said, I'm leaning more towards playing Trubisky DFS just from the standpoint of the matchups against eagles secondary. He should have opportunities to get the ball down the field. Whereas I do see a blow out potential, forty egos. And yes, Nick foles could make some place down the field. But I also see turnovers from forcing the ball down the field. If if it comes to that. So we'll see how it goes. But I'm curious to see how the matchups in the padding out. I'm I mean, as I said, I'll take the chargers in eagles say on the spread. But in terms of outright game winners. I still think that you could have scenarios where both the ravens end rape of the ravens end the bears win. It's just one of those gay cases where both home teams. Have a good chance of holding on a main your head a home favourite godown Texans. But we'll see how it pans out for these two squads. But at least we got a little bit off the snide with the second game last night. Even though it wasn't a great game will still better than the direct that we got out of the Texans. But you know, as I said, that's a that's a separate story with Bill Brian in the Houston Texans being pretenders, but that's gonna do for the show. Best select everyone and have a good one.
