[121] Carolina Panthers coaches film review

"In October sixteenth two thousand nineteen has got finished doing the coaches film. For the London game against the panthers condemn water on the Goddamn Huddle I'll tell you when you get a water break welcome to the buccaneers observer podcasts this where they were either over the receiver behind the receiver that receives feet he had two poor decisions Yeah Yeah Winston had happy feet nine times where he rushed out of the pocket when he didn't need to or rushed around when he didn't need to through six bad pass we all knew that and I was thinking well you know you watch the game film you see different stuff maybe wasn't Winston maybe was under a lot of pressure now he was just bad near the really bad I started kind of chart now things are just keeping track of all the mistakes he made he had happy feet nine times Eh Ellison play him up all right let's get to the game what Ralph C to give it a summary wisdom was bad or running back not picking up blitzes they're not the offensive line no no the offensive line played well played well I really like earl offered in college was the wide receiver who peyton manning benched for trying to catch the ball one hand how okay I remember that name where's he disappeared the probably in the corner and for the bears not forty five something like molly and said he just loved the it's when I'm wrong yes I do follow up games where he scrambled out of the pocket when he didn't need to or he scrambled around when he didn't need to almost every sack was booed him scrambling into the fenders are games now and just think about every time one of the receivers Mrs how bounty just pissed off Aaron wealth down will be the last target he gets this game I don't know how Jimmy Grandma still on that team I think he gets a lot of drops okay follow up Scotty Miller head ten targets and three catches things I found interesting but you'll see Scotty Miller was open quite a few times a couple of James can't see can't see a lot of people all Matt Miller and particularly because he tiny tiny but I mean he's a normal size Dan was he five eleven average person just not an the field he did not see why open receivers so yes the vast majority of blame for this game goes squarely on Jameis Winston shoulders I CNN he really regressed this game and I don't understand why I don't either but he seems to have these games every now and then and this is just one of those times and he did a good job I think I only saw one mistake that he had where he with on blocking Luke Kuechley that was fun almost failed down great but with the game film I've got the video up on Youtube before to check it out check it out it's called the panthers the buccaneers saying the buttery brokers things but we'll get to that in just a second I want to do some fact checks followups that check the two thousand eleven London Game Score against the bears was twenty four eighteen lately different game plans on the defense but we did they did blitz a lot we picked up a lot of their blitzes but like I said the running backs all Donald Jones was the worst offender but then vanished why he is not starting probably yeah he's he seems to be the worst in pass protection the now the panthers blitz a lot and they blitzed a lot I didn't charted out to see exactly how much compared to the buccaneers but we didn't blitz hardly any two different where sobbing because he disappointed peyton manning one time not as bad as Aaron rodgers though L. Gosh Aaron Rodgers mad at you never thought you the ball again I like to watch bad at pass protection would be the second thing now the third thing I would say would be the coaching we got outcoached again this is what happened in New Orleans yes thought he had more targets than than I think I had said about twenty I was just pulling it up above it it's only been tin thirty percent catch radio yeah that's great no it's not adare he was the second worst and then bait and Barbara had one time us all where he did not pick up the defendant well but yeah a lot of the a triple manatt triple Munaf and they were able to get through put pressure on Winston or sacking so that would be the second thing Winston being bad was the first thing running backs a key glitch to like he was in front of one second than the not the next second earl like where to go yeah zip he okay drop passes nine times when you scramble you get happy feet six bad passes to poor decisions and five times you didn't see open receivers sacks and issues with Winston being on a pressure was because the running backs just were not picking up guys or they would missile over they would they were blitzing all the time just about and we did not have counter for Winston we didn't have enough check downs we didn't have hot routes didn't do slants I mean scrambled Roy happy feet right just to you shouldn't have done that fast and the big one was he had five times where he did not see were blitzing a lot and you know I don't know if it was Winston not reading it and changing the play at the line of scrimmage or the offensive coordinator just didn't adjust average football player no not a big dude like what's his name Anthony Cash Collins what does that does not defense big tall guy six foot eight Nelson the heat it's funny how that works well it makes them look bad because when Jamie switching scrambles you think oh he's under pressure right the vast majority much yardage you gotta give a little bit of credit to the quarterback Jameis Winston was throwing the ball when he wasn't running around with the chicken like chicken with his head cut off he did pretty well he would have just stayed in the pocket it was so interesting watching the difference between James Winston and Carl Allen in the pocket you're calm cool and collected if he felt pressure he you're he pushed hard drives so hard into Baghdad hargraves almost fell and he pushed him five yards away from him how the rest didn't see that is reasonable which we got a lot of pressure on Alan especially the first quarter the first quarter I don't think there was a pass play that we didn't get pressure on him but he was just he just get the ball out equation and they probably would not have driven down ninety nine yards and scored a forty yard pass now we noticed that we get screwed by the rafts on May but you know we we've had a rash of these things and that is what caused the separation allowing Dj more to catch that long pass take that play out of the whether it was a bad pass through quite a few passes or throw it in tight coverage didn't matter he just get the ball out immediately when he felt pressure James wouldn't do that and they're quite he wanted to prove a point maybe he softly bellies locked it landed on him like a cloud but yeah the ref would stay in and when they went to the ground he landed on top of Jameis Winston with all his weight and left his feet to do it that should have been a penalty but he's such a nice guy round are you looking to see non calls that work against a panthers to point out a couple of them in the video vida dare I don't know how that's a penalty that's one thing I hate about all these new rules you besides the fact that I just hate them just for their intentions they could silly the helmet on a quarterback sometimes they call it sometimes they don't and landing on the quarterback sometimes they call it sometimes they don't quarterback below the knees sometimes they call it sometimes offense the defense on other hand played great the offensive line played well offensive line play very well only unit that played well on the offense as Winston got hit in the home in a couple of times that wasn't called then there was the sack by Gerald McCoy McCoy left his feet and put all of his weight on James Winston tribute to the offensive line seven and bad Chris Godwin play well of course his stats showed up and people were giving James Winston ties were Jamie's should have done that because he had wide open receivers but he would pull the ball down and start running around Dr Defense now are deviant played good there was the one tilted the game I mean you could make an argument for it they didn't do a good job of course but it wasn't like that Monday night game against with the bears and the he's grabbed he was not under pressure you got had failed Brazier and then sacks that looks bad on the offensive line yes there might have been one sack that you could down the field you cannot win and then plus you're running back with and on blocks running backs whiff and all blocks all the turnovers it was just a bad performance the best thing to do is to remove a lot of these rules they're just they're silly and that game in particular is a perfect example of a who was it number ten or twelve can't remember went up against Bernard Hargreaves this was on the drive where they scored the they start off with we're leaving the back end or the the front end the midfield open all time and we had never had anybody going in that direction so they should have realized that they were that the panthers bread basket that would have been a touchdown and then there was another one late in the game where he jumped up and it went right off his hands at like a forty yard or two he had bounced right out of his hands having a large market team is advantageous when it comes to that because the packers all these calls went in their favor the lions got totally screwed he had dropped passes drop passes Chris Godwin Dario dropped pass there was five dropped passes and counted so when you combine all that together with five you don't have a big marquette the packers do right yeah when they got a big market as far as their cities concerned but the fan base is not that large Green Bay's actually a very small oh and it's just the inconsistency and there's a framing and engineering they say the more complex it is something is the easier it is to break and that's how attorney game like that and those two penalties cost Detroit the game when they were both wrong Detroit was the better team in there but the third team the referees were one yard line with ninety nine euros scored a touchdown there was a large pass play down the left sideline Vernon Hargreaves covering his guy the guy caught the past van to it and then the last thing was our why was he was dropping passes that one by Mike Evans goes that one was I was dropped ride playing for the packers apparently but yeah back to the defense defense played very well we generated pressure without a lot of it's actually the smallest market in all sports Green Bay Wisconsin population wise by as far as a fan base it's huge Detroit does not have that huge fans you got hit after Putin -able to ref standing right there guy slams right into him and he landed on his ass they just kind of shoved down though Green Bay Packer Arnett the bears the lions and the packer currently has the lion's game you know they got to do something about this stuff in got a penalty because to guide twelve we can't remember what his name is Tj more or I think it was more I think it was more Dj more yes it must be his again. Most of the passing receptions were due to the linebackers mainly Devon White. It's that's been the story all season they only had two drives that were over that were ten plays or longer we had to as well our time but here's the Tolan crooked on the ball Chris was not just like have the ball teleported to him James Winston Doorbell so when you have a receiver get the White was too busy on the other side of the field with state of Asadabad Day David it's just an issue with his defense that I think if they can get it down coverage on the McCaffrey touchdown McCaffrey had that swing pass and there was nobody covered him as because I'm white was supposed to be covering thirteen of sixteen we had sixteen possessions they had sixteen possessions of those sixteen possessions five of them started off in Tampa Bay inference or the you know the linebackers are not in good coverage but if you look at the possessions we had I think whoa pass other than that he was pretty good that getting some heat how would you even be able to prove that it's not the secondary statistically Oh Gosh slams right into him and he falls down he turns around to the rest of mediums like maiden call it quite a bit of that quite a bit of that but this is wasn't a game where I'll say that the wraps territory of our sixteen possessions only one started off in Carolina territory so they had much better field position you know that was due to the turnovers mainland with their plays get a little bit better in their coverage to know whether supposed to be really seems like they're they're in the wrong spots a lot the secondary played well you know a crawl today much it's too much for these rest a half watch so they're gonNA miss some and sometimes they're going to be you know make bad judgments on them there was one time where opinion down the fourth quarter they drove seventy five yards and got a touchdown other than that all their scores were short yardage they on the on it's GonNa make a huge difference in our reception totals against the opposing team it's going to reduce that quite a bit who just get the the linebackers two njord a matter of fact five of them were either zero or negative yardage okay when you say possessions you mean like the the second third down possessions that were over ten yards ten yards yes they gained over ten yards for semi twelve possessions they had we kept them under Albany able to do that with us this year defense played very well we had a lot of weird looking a formations as usual always throw in something different in their fund yes wow yeah the in if you look at ours we had nine possessions that were overtaken on your in score that one a large chunk of that was on that play where the got pushed Britain Hargreaves back that should have been off his pass interference that would have back then turnovers so it's not like they were just driving down the field on us at scoring which that when when you see that that's when you go home eighteen sucks when the guys get because that's what we've seen with all these NFL rules if you look at the NFL rule book now it's fake you know it's just been adding roles and adding and adding roles and that's gone that's breaking system it's too missed so yeah they they don't get the calls that I mean they never they never called that at Green Bay against Green Bay guide no they know what about it especially on our thirty one twenty nine they got the ball and are twenty nine that I play where James Winston through the interception they lost two yards on four play wow contained they didn't gain any Jonas we our defense really shut them down the they had the one where they started off on the one yard line of Ninety our secondary is GonNa get beat it's just GonNa happen you know especially the way this defense is designed but you know a lot of it is either the referees are not calling the offense a pass to try all these rules are dome but the problem is they're not consistent with them you know call him sometimes they hands to the awards most of them were way over ten yards nineteen yards thirty seven yards fourteen yards forty six yards thirty nine yards seventy five yard seventy five yards twenty two yards and forty nine yards op there's no way they would have driven down the field nine yards guarantee you without seton cheating and in the first play or the first possession of the one after that one well I'm feeling pretty much about what we felt after the game a lot of the stuff that we thought was the problem was the problem a couple of other different yeah yeah our our defense really did a good job and are run defense is just seriously no joke there was one towards the end of the game they were running the ball I wonder though the only way you could do it is to see who is catching the ball and who's covered who's responsibility to another way you can do that is by watching Phil Yeah now are cornerbacks with a twenty three yard pass when they were backed up there in the thirteen on that ninety nine yard drive he get that one up also gave up a bit and we had a lineup this was so awesome to see we had Shaquille this was on the defensive line we had Shaquille Barrett Nacho We'll Golson yeah the life before Devon White is the one that gave up the pass to Greg Olsen Watch but gotta give props to our defense for I mean you've got to figure seven turnovers seven turnovers and would they they scored twenty points off a seven turnover touchdown then there was a muffed punt the got the ball on our seventeen they lost four yards on that play met four yards and that drive ended up now the gained six yards on detail the macabre sue and Nassib on the line they couldn't go anywhere I mean I'm pretty sure and then they got an interception on the Tampa Bay twenty four and four down they got one yard and then they kicked it crazy rush I mean that's incredible we kept on the field goals and you know just really did a great job or punt it in the first the first interception they got the ball that every single run was attacked for long we were just blowing up definitely yeah it was really neat but yeah our our offense just crapped a bed in a large part coming they ended up with a negative two yards on that drive and they ended up having to kick a thirty one yard fuel go the next interception they got the ball on the thirty six on Tampa Bay's because of the penalty on tape back but they ended up kicking a field goal from Tampa eleven got the ball into seventeen teen ended up kicking field goal from eleven to our defense held him there okay so we're even there but the yardage is what I was looking at we had they had to they had four we six they scored a touchdown in four plays in they got a fumble and had the punt it was three now the Nagata interception on our eight yard line in one play a call Allen in the face a couple times with this four writes an FA elbowed him in the face that wasn't called we did get our defense for the past five years teams can just draw down the field goal in house will yeah they do that here you know the teams I didn't see anything moral Edison did good he he did okay he did he couldn't do much against Donald Smith Smith played really well I think there was one he he got beat one time Abbott was Jameis Winston that's what will cost us the game you know and you want to say just logically say well Carolina's defense played really well you do this that's going to wrap it up for US till next time go backs Ashington the panthers this yeah Washington okay he did a good job of showing a lot of different looks confusing Winston to him Davis wisden needs to stop worrying about pressure he's he's too dependent on his feet and I think this goes along with what Bruce Matchups and everything they didn't they didn't beat our offensive line so that's why I would say that the Carolinas defense we're having a baby and data and decide that he was starting because who else was GonNa Start Zach Bailey and he broke his ankle in practice because there were so many times like I said there was five times five times where he had open receivers downfield and I'm not talking about check bounds I'm talking about in had plenty of opportunities to make great passes there was there was quite a few instances if you WANNA go look at video where he had guys wide open a lot of stuff they've looked really confused now that's where if I were to give the Carolina Panthers Defense Credit I'm GonNa give it to what's their defense coordinators name Gokhale who right but that's also bad for the secondary of Carolina to have guys that wide open we don't have guys at White Oval we used to but really impress me what impressed me was the coaching that was that was pretty good you know just all the different looks and the confusion that they got are not our offense line open he wouldn't see him a couple times he blazed down the field and just beat all the coverage and he was wide open and dame's Winston was either running around is to change that game like Scotty Miller and we talked about this last podcast just stop throwing the ball Scotty Miller changed my mind on that okay we need to really really really start working on keeping his eyes downfield scanning the field keep his body in in constant rare now if we have guys wide open it's usually on the linebackers Kevin Minter so yeah the guys blazing down the field wide open for touchdowns generally there's three or four of those but and again we lost by eleven points yelling neither hit two of those for touchdowns for sure but the runback say they got confused as to who they're supposed to block a lot so I would I would give them credit for that but as far as like you know what Jimmy Jones how Josh Wells had like one day of practice before they leave to go to London and what surprised me about that was is that they didn't give him a lot of help interesting did Winston in the runningback for past protections concerned what did you think about their coverage that was pretty good but she no like I said when Ryan says about him trying to be superman he's not trying to be superman by throwing the ball you know he's trying to be superman with his feet I guess you'd call it the flash then instead of superman but to a defender almost every time you know what was the most annoying to me watching him scramble was that he often ran Asian to throw that ball bounce around that pocket you know the only run out of the pocket when it's a last resort because almost every time he got tackled it was because he ran in has lot open and if Jamie's wisdom would keep his feet still ground popular bit but keep his head Downfield we wouldn't want this game easy even with the seven turnovers secondary did not the secondary of the panthers did just weren't wasn't that great they they had a lot of busted coverage on us because we had way too many Jameis Winston had no reason to run out of the pocket I don't know why did he runs right beside Donald Smith who's got his control but he runs right by him in taken with his head cut off or just didn't see them at all at through somebody else I think Scotty Miller is going to be an asset of this team fast fast Janus has just got to get the means at Leans Alvarez Yeah that the Journal McCoy sack the the one I was talking about where you put all the way onto James Wisdom when he sank the guy who just had to stick his arm and it was especially like there would be our offensive lineman between that defender Angie and James runs past I don't I don't know what that was all about and runs smack DAB into Gerald McCoy he's he's got to learn to calm down stay in the pocket you know only whole defensive line keep their eye on that ball and they they never get fooled you know there might be one guy every now and then get full but the rest of them are Vida love this game he loves this team to he is always on the sideline when offense is out there jumping up and down hooting and keep tight ends there apparently in the running backs were really no help at all in being honest yeah it was pretty bad to run backstage it down and he starts looking around in the pocket he's not looking downfield anymore and these guys are getting open a couple of things I wanna point out our defense never is you're going to get one great play a game from all the games I watched him with Denver you're GonNa get one great play a game and he never makes mistakes now this is six games in especially during McCoy they bit every time when now never ever they they are probably some of the football smartest people I've ever watched the Argh I so our guy doesn't have the momentum anymore rock the leverage so the guy he's blocking around it's I've never seen anything like that you know a guy that never makes mistakes get picked up by day sunlight gotta yeah definitely nother interesting thing I have yet to see him make a mistake that is a grantable God doesn't make mistakes he always keeps contain he always is in the right spot the right time Ryan Smith Okay we all know that he got that ball on the one yard line on special teams after the punt we all know he's the one that popped out the ball got the worse with James Winston scrambling now a couple of times he did scramble outside the pocket do okay that's the problem he'll do okay on some of these sometimes migrate plays Rotman I mean just knocks him out of bounds on his ass and the guy's just totally taken out of the play but he's he's he's very very good special teams he's always around the ball it was seventy-seven kyle love reaches out and grabs hold of Winston Winston gets out of his grasp spins around backwards in Ron's back into the pocket with up the pocket yeah that was the last year last year right so you know you hear that stuff and you go oh well you know it's a good idea for me to run outside the pocket no it's not it'd be different if he did coming back in the grabbed from behind so get full doing that but beat avail hardly gets fooled sue Harley gets fooled check Barrett never gets this act if you get hit then let it be that's their full you know but you know this guy because what he does what he scrambles as he puts the ball down he puts his he's always blocking his guys he's doing what he needs to do and plus so hit four good special teams play yes that's impressive very impressive considering we haven't had out in last resort or if you know you're going to pick up good yardage you'd have with this running you know he he's not running across the line of scrimmage he's trying to get out of the pocket you know to me they're running right to the the ball so that's really impressive to me Adama con Su he never gets called every now and then he'll try to come in to he likes to Winston was because he scrambled out of the pocket when he didn't didn't have to and like I said it's in the video you could see it many a times where while he's got the ball down Aaron Rodgers ABC's Aaron Rodgers eras runs out of the pocket all the time but with Aaron Rodgers runs outside the pocket he always keeps his feet set he keeps the ball cocked and he's always looking down right he usually runs to the left I think usually what spin he spends to the left but you know he's not doing that you trust your blockers you know when he scrambles but then there's those times which is the majority of time where it's just not a good idea he would be so much better off if he didn't put concrete blocks lost in this one yeah and Bruce Arians did say when he gets hurt hit early it kinda throws them off and that's what happened this game but he's never looking at the guys coming at him he's never looking really even weird ron he's just but you know he's if you see somebody open as he's scrambling he can zip and encouraged him to do it more right and I think there was a stat I don't know if it was last year or this year there early part of this year where Jacobs wisdom was rated one of the highest quarterbacks outside quick right and he if he doesn't find somebody open then he decides to run right yeah yeah turnover on the I think it was a yeah the punt that we kicked Carolina he came up behind the gap pop the ball and we recovered it almost every special teams play he was doing something like that does it do that with an only throws the ball away when he's get clobbered try to throw it out of bounce but yeah just about every badly you can think of ever gets tricked this is an issue I have for years with the buccaneers and there was a bootleg or fake fame bit every time especially Gerald McClellan me see get a glimpse of the sideline look for Vida you're going to see him he's going to be near the ball if it goes out of bounds or whatever and he's gonNA run over and congratulate guys not I mean he's just got a lot of Shen yes but he hasn't got hit at that point so I don't understand how him getting hit early effective that seems to me he gets rattled I thought he played better. You know when I watched the broadcast version I thought Winston played better in about mid third quarter in the fourth quarter would punt return you should maybe return a punt every now and then or at least catch the ball that one he fumbled he did everything wrong and they told him not to leave and he left anyway that's when Dirk cutter to cut us off and they called him on the phone and they were like Holler and then just so excited that little thing that whole thing where he flexes his arms damn buys and every played better but then watching the the coach now eden he was banned the whole game well as wasn't as I pass and inner it was we talked about this last year with him he's just a great special teamer way he does so I I have I think one put in the video where he just blows long that you're not supposed to do when you feel the punt everything took his eyes off the ball he caught it on the side of his body outstretched czar yes sir uh-huh beat him stay in that pocket because those few good players that he makes gives him this false sense that he can be productive scrambling arms who was ridiculous yeah yeah I'm not upset about getting cut here's one I think he should

downloading all that good stuff so we really appreciate that hope you enjoyed the broadcast as well right the show the jagged hey ben how fantastic suhel units you call fantastic but when your Chicago bears that bad I try I try not selected teams I support get me down the only thing that really gets me is my my doors football team she's eight and I'm the CO manager of pets would under nine's and if they lose a game I feel really bad because the girls WanNa win it's all about enjoying but as it is thankfully we're unbeaten this listen taking down so the strategy your I call this innovative one one formation half the Baz God so you bad offensively that they are now you in that place where you're quite comfortable with because you know the season's done and it's quite funny in the way you what not a bad film and your noise that you spent money on a bad film but it's the devil's advocate with Pacino Kiana read yeah love the devil's advocate it it has it has got to that it's so bad and so ridiculous and it's like the pressure's off now you the superbowl expectations any playoff expectations are out the window window and you just okay let's let's see what hilariously bad thing they can do but I I'm the thing that I'm still bitter about is the you only get one one hundredth anniversary and it's the best one hundred season and they've spoiled it and my daughter God's go to her first bears game this season and they spoil it if it wasn't for those do things I think okay it's a Zombie season I can just have a bit of a laugh about it there's plenty of things to enjoy in the NFL you don't have to just watch your own team obviously I'd be in trouble if I did so I'm I'm trying to just be like okay it's bad go we're going to move on DIS my big problem Mitchell Orbis keys to eat broke girls and she loved for that she loves trubisky she's always calling biscuits and she's a big Fan Dan and when when he's on the scrapheap eighteen months from now she's going to stop you right let's get into a far more important the G. respect to the Bazan hey you got to remember the eagles victims I write back in it as well but the headline act of course of the week nine games with the Sunday night White Win for the Baltimore Ravens I works night came early Shit Bates relaxing the Patriots now people call this they thought that this live this could be a win for the ravens to open up things a little bit and look to the ground game in particular where the Patriots would be bud the week before of course and it's such potent rushing offense to the ravens interesting how they did it radio dominating time of Possession Ingram had a big game engine fifteen yards that was his best sutton certainly for the last five or six Lamar Jackson mixing it up again getting some ground game going four offensive touchdowns for the Patriots lay it on the best defense in the NFL so suddenly things a wide open suddenly Ben Patriots audible after yet like I had a sneaky feeling that the ravens were going to perhaps not win but just pushed the Patriots so hard that they'd there'd be some late game heroics but he wasn't that the Ravens buil built that big lead I love how they responded when the Patriots had cut the lead to four the star of the second half and Lamar Jackson made a beautiful throw throw on I think it was five colon eighteen yards and then they start rolling again and it was it was like they'd have they'd had a bit of a wobble and the Mark Jackson and said come on guys is we know we've got this and they control the clock as well as anyone and they just took the life out of that game for the Patriots and just kept running the bowl down their throats and last week most of us were prepared to see Cleveland Success on grounds patriots like an aberration but maybe it wasn't it was an eerie weakness again today and they were stacking box at times against Baltimore it's not like they didn't try to scheme against it they won't they couldn't get it done you know Lamar Jackson we we know what we know what he can do and he's now on pace I think he's got six hundred and thirty seven yards the record for a core rushing season is one thousand thirty nine how by Michael Vick obviously and he's halfway more than halfway there was still half the season to go and let's be honest this is an MVP style season season from Lamar Jackson he's he's definitely going to be in the mix we were chatting about this in on the live game show yesterday the MVP discussion came up usual suspects is that many of us have been talking about for most of the seasons at dowling Kirk and McCaffrey and Rojas a cultural those elvis coming in the maximum view is fight in and it's GonNa divide opinion that look he's a great player really me peasy reading that discussion phosphor nine hours in fullness and he's got to be but just not just what he was able to deliver individually I guess how in terms of productivity but holding his nerve as you say that and not being phased by the occasion which was for me reminiscent in many respects Mahomes lost year in that game against the Patriots were the chiefs lost ultimately but he just wasn't phase he didn't standout didn't back down new then he's the real deal here and I think this in many respects is a coming of age game for full Lamar Jackson to go up against the Patriots to go up against Brady entered the dominate in this in this fashion I think is really significant he has to be in the MVP race wet what is what does this do for the AFC discussion because all season long we've been saying pretty much it's the patriots that chiefs and that everybody else does this mean now that you will putting the ravens up with the two of them is easy to overreact to a performance in you still see fundamental flaws uh-huh Ravens side what does this result day for the AFC pecking order then for me it puts the Patriots number two nestled just behind New England glad I would right now putting Sawyer for the Ravens just behind the Patriots in the number two spots that's that's not to say I think that at the end end of the season necessarily they would be ahead of the chiefs in People's minds because I think the chiefs sort of turned the corner we'll get into that obviously but this was perhaps trumps of the most impressive performance by a super bowl contender all season you're right what you say about Lamar Jackson he wasn't he wasn't Faysal he had the chance to be phased when the Patriots it's came was signed to come back and he wasn't it's all and they are going to need that in January because these two teams the all potentially on a collision course again if if you were told right now that the F. C. Championship was going to be in Foxborough in the Ravens we're going to be there you wouldn't think that's crazy this is this is how it looks I was in the chiefs has got a lot to say about that the ravens the north lockdown now and they like to think so stormy happening the bengals and the browns out of it and the steelers what five hundred so yeah I mean how many full game eighteen sixty two thriving so yeah a long way ahead already individually I had so into division the ahead extrordinary the ravens capitulated and if they did and you know that kind of answers our question anyway I'm not going to contend in the playoffs coach yeah it's whether they get a discount I mean realistically the the Vanilla Scheduler the Patriots have it's hard to see the championship game not being folks so the chiefs of the Ravens heading to folks for in that game homes again who do you think thing has the best chance of pulling off the road I actually I actually think I think the ravens why but not by much I just trust the ravens ends defense a bit more than I trust the chiefs defense and psychologically knowing that they can beat the Patriots and not just sneak past them but to control control the game in that way the thirty-seven points they gave up is the most allowed by the Patriots on the road since we call twenty fourteen when they lost forty one fourteen so the chiefs now a lot of people might remember that game but the reason it always sticks in my head is that it's the one that a couple of days later when Belichick was giving his news conference when he kept saying we're on Cincinnati yes a coroner Cincinnati and that was the ones that the last time anything happened was then so that's that's how that's a big deal this is worth pointing out of course in that patriots season they did go on to win that Super Bowl what exactly let's look Positives the Patriots 'cause they need they need tearing up right but so city settled infighting because a lot of people have suggested that this is an imbalanced instead imperfect offense right they built this success so far on this great defense which is he said quote Rodney just took it to them in that respect him offensively I think I think the the Ravens are getting so much pressure on brady and rattling him in that respect but on a positive level you've got edleman and stepping up once again Saturday was well the ground game has to be a concern for them at the moment but do you think that the aquisition of Sununu Josh going of course is the Conagra they were marginally better do you think that he might based on the small sample size might end up being the missing piece to give them a more complete imbalanced offense because we're looking at in Russia with the score thirty eight yards of nine attempts they just couldn't really get tried to stop a shitty kind of granite no I think if anyone's going to be the missing piece now then he seems like he's perfectly placed for that I think we're going to get sort of peaks and troughs with him I don't think he's necessarily going to Ghana I think what we saw last night isn't necessarily an aberration but I don't think it's going to be a consistent thing I think if patriots fans of thinking okay he's going to be the guy from here on out they may be a little bit disappointed though I still think there are there are well-balanced the thing is good teams still have bad games and I don't think I don't think we can look at the Patriots and necessarily they say that they're all terrible flaws in that same it happens obey the DA that run defense which go exp- has being exposed to in points this season was just torn apart do you trust bill bellyache too big wow any other coach in the NFL exactly so they are still if if you're patriots fan looking positives his remain positive you are still going to be the top seed in the AFC barring things something crazy happening the road to the super bowl still has to go through foxborough you still have the greatest quarterback of all time you still have the greatest coach fulltime so just chill chill guys honestly it could be so much worse just just draw belichick an email saying that may I think he'd appreciate that right about how the the final things while I guess is the removal of that pressure being unbeaten which you can imagine suddenly coach like ballot check. I don't like the Patriots Zloty Relieved about distraction in that they would feel the pressure necessarily but concert reference to it as the season rolls on and we've seen this in the past with Bela Chick era patriots side kind of thing while you know maybe maybe it's not the worst thing all together from that perspective chip that no longer have the potential to to go and beaten and be the perfect side similarly you think you look at this data chick at the car air but as far as it's being tripled of the most of the Belichick Patriots era anyway the idea that the Patriots creates any team is going to lose a game on purposes is absurd idea that ballot check is GonNa look at it just as you said think plenty of champions appease lose games let's not get carried away look at exactly what the issues were and the run defense they're gonNA fix I'll fix that and it's fine move on just in it I guess embracing at least certainly not freaking out over the fact that this victory might do more good than harm in the lower on L. Force them to Sir sharpen their pencils to lick it son says an equally give the opposition and the the chasing pack and the content is a little bit of confidence that might comeback comeback though I think anyway that better check isn't going to be while aggrieved about the defeat too concerned about it plenty of plenty of Super Bowl teams of you've lost amid season game use that to improve and bill belichick always wanted to lose the game and he'll you know the classic taking one game at a time he looks at each game in isolation he'll be disappointed that his game plan did not work but he will relish the chance to use this game as a as a learning tool for the rest of the team the likes Tom Brady they've heard it all before but they will be younger players who could really do is it's kind of gain a rocket from bill and showing you achieved absolutely nothing as much as I'm sure everyone associated with the patients would love to have a nineteen season to Kinda get the taste of tastes the mouth of the very disappointing eighteen in one season ended in a super bowl defeats feats I think it helps them not having that let's let's say they'd Gone Sixteen Ano- all the talk all the talk would have been willie flop again exactly exactly right this is why I don't think better check is that worried about it I think only cares about is winning the super bowl and insight into precisely is perspective respective everything all the evidence points the fact I don't think he cares really about that it'd be great if they did it but the pressure and the focus that go into the Klaus imagine the Super Bowl he he would find that an unnecessary distraction everything we know about folks where there's no backslapping photos memorabilia are up and he will kick it's not out straight down to business which do your job whenever it goes into the playoffs we will always say look the Patriots and notice inside are built notice inside now they have every advantage but if he was sixteen to know all of a sudden we'd be like will they fail instead of being how will the Patriots win this which is kind of the narrative not every other time that in the playoffs it would be willis go wrong and it's just totally turns the whole thing on its head this game will do them no harm whatsoever so ever and if they come if they come up against the Ravens in the postseason which I've got a feeling they will they will be able to learn from it and nothing as bad as a defeats is this is not going to cost the patriots I don't mean any any way the Ravens got a lot from they don't you patriots lose much from it okay well let's go onto the Kansas city chiefs the other top seed in the AFC and used win for them twenty six twenty three the final over the vikings the big story go into the game was whether they were going to gamble and risk Patrick Mahomes who is an entrepreneur fair and they didn't they rode with Matt Land and and it paid off and then some pretty fast when our butts kicked the winning field goal that would he forty four yard field goal is just piling in on everybody could on on the field probably Adnia read have kittens watching that but it the occasion being there I think moms will be good to go next style based on what we saw that proved to be the right decision not to be cautious holding back Matt Moore Hell of a backup need up before he's had this brief cameo this season representing that again of the level of course those significant out from tyreek hill who had six catches hundred forty yards Damian Williams as well at one hundred and twenty five yard day ninety one yard score of course being the bulk of that so another exclusive performance some of the key protagonists in this offense irrespective commodes and another example of cousins blowing a big game just when the Vikings needed to turn it round and carry them home yeah I this was a must win for the chiefs and I don't think that can be stressed enough early in the season on your Friday show we joked about the fact that too and always better than which is bad enough to but the chiefs go to six in three rather than four to five and four which would have put them in a kind of big muddle the indicate the middle of the AFC. Although I would have still expected to make the playoffs they'd be so far behind the the other top teams they have to be on the road the whole time and Arrowhead oh he's a great home stadium and it would it would prevent them from hosting a playoff games they need mahomes backstopping because my more was fine but he's ceiling ceiling is low and we've seen that sailing and yes I'm aware that mahomes lost a couple of games this season but there's only there's only so far the they they're going to be able to go with Matt Moore under center could cousins maybe the same thing for the Vikings was so frustrating so he missed the only thing I ever fourth quarter Comeback Win and at one point that I I love I've Kinda keep rewatching is at one point is caught on camera taking off his helmet elm angrily and shouting I'm trying now I'm not sure it'd be asked to do but listen guys he's really trying that you guys okay so let's not be too hard on kirk cousins because he's really trying trying to always catch kirk cousins say anything that ends up as a gift ages ages yeah I mean he had that crucial it's a textbook opportunity and one of the guys on NFL DOT COM was emphasizing this point that the game was in his hands to win and that's what a great quarterbacks to you know a couple of minutes Muslim on the drive getting the job done an any couldn't do it there were other things to bear in mind the chiefs defense offense and you referenced this earlier on and they are maligned defense and capable of giving up a both sides of the ball at they held Alvin Cook too reticent be quiet a a for him and you gotta I guess positives own positives achieved fans from outside of the wind that the defense held up in that respect but nevertheless yeah this was a game that the Vikings Coulda Shoulda woulda so where does this leave you on the chiefs that if you go and tied that's the west of the rate is winning again Gannon I've got a question about the rates as well as Georgia's not done and dusted it gives them a bit of breathing space the number one spot you to eat assume they're going to go on and roll through outside of the divisional battleline it back to what we were saying earlier on the deep debts of the of the playoff race what have you made ah chiefs winning despite being out it's being is being impressive actually because they've had some kind of lean on other areas of strength this there's no way they're going to go on a deep run without mahomes we we know that but they've shown they've shown what they can do like you say the way that they balled up delving coke now now the be kind of making lanes for him like they normally do but a lot of those down to walk down to what the chiefs were doing so you know credit there because the chiefs have been quite easy to run on this this chiefs team this this may be the most important win of the season and they've done that without mahomes it kept everything taking over keeps the Arrow pointing up with surging teams behind them in L. A. and Oakland and dance this still team to beat in the AFC west and they they were showing everything that they can they can do Damien Williams running game is being disappointing is Damian Williams Yawn Saad I don't know but they want they need to be able to give them a homes a bit of a break times and be able to run the bowl own slow the game down well let's talk about you mentioned the rate is surging and certainly involved in a in a thriller against Detroit Tree Suspected It would be actually we thought it would be a shootout taken in the house on Friday we were getting into that and seeing points on the board we certainly got I'm fifty five to be precise to rate is thirty one at twenty four in that shootout another a chapter in the Beta sweet season for Matt Stafford he's having a hell of a year and maybe a career defining era in terms of productivity but he's probably going to get much to show for other than individual pelotas and stats he threw for three touchdowns over four hundred yards once again Kenny Golladay amongst angst the recipients against the policy offense despite very lift lapping on the ground for the lions continuing to be impactful but it wasn't enough the rate is outgunning the Jewish Jacob stepping up at once again another one hundred yard plus game a couple of scores and we love this young rate is offense this young rate is side frankly lead that had so little expletives little expectation for them at the start of the season and they had that with London and then seem to blow this with back to back defeats it's suddenly right back at it and in AFC whether they're gonNA catch the chiefs Oh not a four and four they are right in the mix Alcott you know if if there's two things they can kind of do a promising season it's having lots and lots of young players which will generally make it difficult to win and having a shedule which is unfavorable achievable not just the teams you're playing but the constant road trips the rate is both those things against them one of the youngest teams in the League and the Ad Forty eight days of being being unable to play a home game and yet here they all four and four eighth overall in the AFC standings and only just behind Indianapolis Indianapolis of being beaten by the raiders. The raiders I calmly were saying this is November the raiders illegitimate legitimate playoff crawlspace they have I think we'll get carried away with the bears game but I been saying that for a little while now I think I think they yeah because the AFC is so wide open in that respect in terms of the wild card race nine seven record my did because I know the bills one again and tells fans will be the I'm still getting in touch with me on social media but I'm not sure they are legit I certainly don't run away with with one of the world's on the basis of the Patriots as we would imagine them not going to capitulate AFC so I'm not sure is a case of any one of the wildcards a play for an ASC and as a result I think yes for sure they're they're in the mcsween scenic charges may be ninety seven should probably do it looking at someone from the south that doesn't win it I guess and and that's probably going to be either the colts the Texas now that the Jaggi was lost and then and then someone from the west either the right is the bills I guess yeah and I if you're if you're a raiders fan and and the rate is do not make the playoffs this season they kind of just out you really must not be down halted by obviously most raiders fans winning with low expectations you know the star of the season was ridiculous not not just the Antonio Brown but every season when your team is on hard knocks everything is just amplified Leiden everything just seems ridiculous it's it's very easy to have a law for GRUDEN's expense but he's clearly been very savvy and they see building having a team for the future this is a team that could be a could be an actual contender euro two down the line you know there's always talk about whether they would get rid of carbon trying to draw to kind of have a splashy move in the draft and you know people were talking about will get the first overall pick and we'll take to WHO and now we're here for and four and they could be in the playoffs what means David Kanwar for next season who knows but if you were someone in Las Vegas he's already season ticket for the raiders your gang very different team next season than you thought you were going to get other boy leader in business now what we mentioned the charges absolutely shellacking degree my pack is again without putting ourselves in the back and giving tummies rub we set on the Friday show this could be a trap game for the packers and it turned out to be particularly how they managed to completely shut down the packers offense that was extraordinary stuff from from this day enjoy Bosa right in the mixed with Ingram as well should get props as well the the narrative artsy from this is what and let's not get carried away in the same way with not with the Patriots defeated or that cause for concern that the Green Bay what's on Nove furthermore is his Green Bay defense defense was that overrated at the start the season starting to revert to to to maybe where we thought it would be I think probably was a little bit overrated in the in the way that they was they seem so spectacularly good when they had not been good at all in the season the the issue I think is the if Aaron Rodgers is unable to get things done that he wants to get done this offense just grinds to grinds to a halt now no matter what game he plays Aaron Rodgers wants to be the best even if that game is the blame game or perhaps especially the blame game he was in the press conference France and saying we've got to be honest about our routine and decisions we made in the last forty eight hours and make sure that our heads in the right place the next time we come on a big road trip ooh so presumably he's no setting that routine it feels like once again he's not happy with coaches is whether it was the trip not everybody taking care of themselves the right way over the last two days we would just tired or the differences in temperature but those are just excuses I feel he's putting these things out there saying being so my teammates were not doing what they should have been doing. I'm not happy with the routine that was set by the coaches and team management's the I think Rogers I know this is kind of what we get from Rogers if he's asked what's going wrong he will kind of make these sort of passive aggressive about about teammates I don't the thing it's great habits and he didn't play well yesterday and I mean it's not like he's saying I was great everyone else messed up but I would prefer it if if he just when when he was kind of like how things went wrong if he only focused on his own mistakes personally my favorite mistake Green Bay's Gyro exam there was almost all for the game will affect the loss would have on the packers going forward and he said none and you now identified fans should be praying for better performance or does the offense to confess it's being carried almost totally Byron Rogers I dunno if an actual none had appeared at that point and then began to explain how bad or or otherwise it was alright so difficult day for Aaron Rodgers but the packers will ride again Jacoby Bruce says the next story I want to talk about on the Indianapolis Coach for set out of the Game Broadway came in injured his knee they hoping it's not going to be particularly serious the colts a brilliant certainly certainly had a significant impact in the game against the steelers which was a tight one as far as the lines were concerned Indianapolis subtly in it's right till the death of the Status Twenty six twenty four win in the end courtesy of Atom Viteri automatic military one of the game's greats a missing what would it be a potentially game winning field goal I now not necessarily on military in particular the stat was in great I think it was lacy's this latest facing right which was never away you want to be where you will kick but nevertheless a frustration often for the colts and concerns course perset yeah I'm in a different game with percents it was it was sad to see and they've got two home games coming up now against Miami and Jacksonville pill which a winnable with Hoyer if perset compli they don't need to rushing back if those games can be one Buyoya which they probably can they think he's gone MCI spraying nothing has been confirmed yet and if it's an MC L. Sprain you're looking at anywhere from one week to eight weeks so it depends if the ACL is affected obviously are they gonna get a proper look but Hoya voices Rudolph is no luck I e versus Burger is it's I got to give a shout Brian hoyer became he became the fifth player in NFL history throwing a pass with seven or more different teams the Patriots the cardinals for the Browns for the Texans for the best for the forty nine and now the Kohl's what a legend get Kansan Vinny testaverde Christiane Ah Gus for all the others on says Ryan Fitzpatrick on eight all heading all four of those headed to Kansas I think debate does it take on our Friday video just pot and see if we could wind up people jeep okay let's let's throw Brown's next big story coming out of the browser another defeat for them of course was Jarvis Landry Odell Beckham being told to change cleats halftime which many people's eyes represents the absolute undiluted highlighted dysfunction with this with this franchise which was the writing on the wall where we everybody getting carried away with it people get up the super bowl was it was it just a given that this was going to happen this mean the end eating pretty kitchens now it's pretty clear that season is done the season is done but I think Freddie kitchens just he's got to be given another season he was given if he was in a kitchen needs to give him a lot of ingredients that don't necessarily work together but I think you gotta to give him another season to figure out a little bit more shopping and see if he can make something that's palatable because at the moment it's pretty disgusting my really think that given didn't talent is here I know he's a first year head coach Y- interim period noise standards I e proper head coach and I'm all for giving coach he's a time on the strong advocate and it's not knee-jerk reaction Yanking after the one season in the NFL loved about the Nfo Abed's other sports is that usually teams give head coaches time to to grow into the role in an accept that and we remember it was a successful head coach for for a long time right a and zero if you persevere but then I'm not sure Freddie Kitchens is built ballot check to be honest and I just don't know whether you have to look at the collection of talent he's I've got another being banged up on the secondary I get back in that what's how to use and Mayfield still sophomore year troubles all of these things but they should be better off than they are just I just don't know if he can win the locker room around or get them playing to the level that they should be when you look at this combination of talent there there's a lot there is lots talent there and obviously he's the blame has to ask the fall on him when it comes comes to somebody losing their job at this stage kind of of the one full season I'd want to know whether he has lost the locker room whether the whether with the players are still responding still fighting for him I'd say if they if they saw and people in the organization should be able to know that if if they are then I think you've got to give him a bit more time because it's a very it's still a very small sample size now our play going off the rails is he is he losing them maybe I mean Jemaine Whitehead is not a prominent player for the browns but he was all over social media last night basically threatening to shoot people who criticize him on social media and somebody somebody had criticized him and he came back implying that that he would shoot him and the response that this guy was you'd probably miss so it's there were problems not take calls if I if I think someone might actually own a gun I don't do that so so things things are problematic there I personally would give would give him the benefit of the doubt give him at least two full seasons unless it's obvious that the play is going absolutely wild and they are they have no respect for the season I think you have to because he is someone who took them to the playoffs in the first season he was coach of the year I think if you go if you go to seasons without the playoffs and you've got talent then you can expect the boots obviously the bears and not GonNa make the playoffs this season I think the bears will give him the opportunity to turn it around in season three and if he doesn't do it then he'll be gone and I think the same thing applies to Teresi I would imagine trubisky will still be starting quarterback next season going better up I would expect both of those to be starting the season next year but they will be on their last chance you're happy with two different questions this is I guess what they will keep the biscuit whether you happy that they're going to keep the negative I'm not massively happy because I'm still bill angry and annoyed and I kind of want somebody to suffer but I think I'm happy with them staying because it's sensible option it's is not the it's not the knee jerk option matinee he likes to consider himself on offense genius and this season he clearly hasn't been but he was he was good lost year and trubisky regressed regressed but maybe maybe last season is the true reflection of them and we can find out we find out next year I think they have to be given and another chance just jumping back to that story is really a quote from Beckham to keep out after the game what I've cleats so my feet then they can be hot pink lime green is Never GonNa Affect me how you feel with hot pink cleats how how do you know what I'm wearing right now I just go to in Jewish yeah no I would I would add I'm wearing a lot I'm wearing black almost head head to toe rhino apart from some train is that a much brighter and the browns uniform I think he's painfully ugly I think you I think a bit of hot pink to set that off I think I think is great more power to him I think if anything that should make him play bets are because you know it's it's it's like Dan Sanders would say you know if you if you look good feel good feel good you play good if you play good they pay good so the browns pay good if you're Odell Oh Beckham junior anyway so yeah go for the pink I would happily be wearing bright pink train is right now with this very black sombor you just gotTa now you've got to have a bit of pulp you know I've always had papa that lived up to that height hey thing at the Miami Dolphins winning the victory over the New York jets means that the dolphins offered to not gonna go winless this season Hallelujah are they blowing the chances of the number one picture is as we suspected might be the dolphins it's going to stumble and bumble and scratch and claw to two and fourteen three and thirteen season and then I'm going to take to the bengals until I still I I still think they're going to get this the number one pick because they've got less talented anybody else why do like he's is pride and fight on this dolphin team a hero for the coach he and all this stuff tanking and all this and they call fans they're almost saying yeah please lose because we want to we want we want to and it's getting them angry and I like that I think they've shown a lot of character China takes with producer of this show Joe before we recorded and expect the Chinese that's Marino what's up before I would never I would never kiss until like that anything that Marino sends may is between me and Hammad is not for ESPN broadcast and Rita obsessed with carbon addicted. He's but he's always asking me what color my train is all about and we were talking about kind of whether whether this will be whether it's played into the bengals hands in ice I think in the bengals a mess it up I think they're going to accidentally win a couple of gains because they've got more talent in the dolphins often I mean what does it say about the jets who are just an absolute mess I think the jets a worse position than the dolphins in a way because because the dolphins I think will still end up with number one pick and I think they can have a franchise changing quarterback at the end of it I'm I'm actually just really impressed the dolphins players attitudes which is not what we gain Cleveland big cowboys fans thinking right about now saying suivant receiving the jets over the last two weeks what does that mean about that week six defeat to them I still feel that still feels like a fever dream I still remember the cowboys are really good that's a great description crack you work betty is always a pleasure catching the metaphor listens forty and of course you will bring some college starlings I'll Wednesday's show so we look forward to that and we will see Chasing Guy Ski Club yourself may look after those cleats think leads I will do always keeping Leith at one trip over very wide bad we will move swiftly along JP Shatri pot of the jags Brokaw steam they come over with the jags each and every shame it didn't play out for them this time around how'd let's find out about well that means the Jacksonville season JP shattering you must be the hardest work in mind and show Biz because to less than twenty four hours ago you were in London you are now doing a radio at impromptu radio coincidentally back in Jacksonville a couple of hours I can't talk to us we'll we'll good morning good yes it was a little bit of a whirlwind I think I got Wimbley we yesterday yesterday now Sunday morning at about seven thirty I got their prep for this final prep for our pre game show here in Jacksonville I was on the air at eleven thirty and kick off at two thirty and then moved over to talksport to and jumped on for those guys for analysis of the game and then came back and half time for our halftime show three tables away at Wembley and did our halftime show Jacksonville the bill came back for the second half called the fourth quarter and then went back to our table after that and did the first two segments the post game show change clothes real quick ran down on the locker room got on the bus got on the plane and I got back we got back to Jacksonville about two thirty in the morning I think I walked into my house at about three thirty so it's been quite a day and you know unfortunately the team did not play well it's really really know I mean and you talk about fourth quarter turnover turnover central of course which is where I was completely thrown away let's start with why don't we start with what in particular went wrong for you because I guess the front seven seven in many respects did everything they could I mean you know there were times wedding gone quayle had deshaun Watson route his ankles around his waist this matters just unstoppable culpable is just kept the wheeling and dealings way out of trouble so maybe it was much on them but sunny offensively there were there were a lot of concerns disappointed I think as as much in London was JP to to see Gardner Menchu perform like that because there was being so dynamic in so galvanizing just such an exciting character on and off the field they just didn't show up on Sunday true will start with mentioned because that's the best the biggest story right now on what happened yesterday the four turnovers in the fourth quarter when he was trying to press a little bit and try to jump start his team back into the game I think some of those throws were just lost a little bit and there were Times Games where you love that escape ability and his his ability to make things happen on the move and an extended play but you know there are some times it just felt like he didn't in half to run as much as he was having to that he was running and throwing the ball down the field so you know it was a poor performance on a huge stage age now the big question is will he be the guy moving ahead Doug marrone the Jaguars head coach said he's GonNa give it a couple of days think about it this week and he's going to tell l. both of those guys foles and or meant you on Sunday coming out of the bye week going into next week what the decision so he doesn't WanNa make a knee jerk decision on one bad performance but it was a it was a big performance and it didn't go very well so and they'll be recently biased on this one jp because they never it's very hard to avoid that the best time but do you think that let's say the Jackson comes in London still lost the game but men she hadn't particularly made the mistakes you're spot on with subtly with those throws forcing issue at the same time I love the way he kept coming back despite the second interception was essentially try exactly the same thing and then they go back again he threw a dime right down the middle of the field so we love that about him but do you think that inevitably marrone Ronin covered get affected by recency bias and that if actually it'd been a jags lost but an okay man she performance he probably would have kept the Geico do you think that he's not GonNa get -ffected by what he saw on Sunday too much well I think it has a lot to do with what will happen here and I think that's why making a decision decision today is if you make today than when she was out I mean that's kind of how that goes wants to see the big picture look can garner bounce back and can he make I think this thing sustainable and big games coming up after the bye week on the road in the division so for me I mean thinking today it just feels like like foles is going to be the guy because this offense was originally built for neck they ended up just some things regarding to make it work but now voles is back he's come off the bench and late seasons before he has a veteran presence of out in so for me right now if you're asking me on Monday I think it's going to be foles moving ahead here but I still think it's a toss up honest with you the way Doug marrone thinks about this thing he's going to give it the thorough audit deserves you're gonNA make a decision and they're gonNA move on and he's not GonNa make that decision today on Monday going to give it a week and see what this team a chance to win this season he's not just this season but this month because they have these two division games coming up still very much in the hundreds or it's a good point just on the the difference he pointed out between what happens next game versus next season immediate short term versus mid to long-term does that have an impact on in the sense that if if they want to go with long term for various reasons including financial right he's going to be the more the better value option there does it make sense then falls also back in the side so he's essentially in the shop window if they're looking at maybe dealing him in the off season combustion if they wanNA deal minhsiu is it going to be profitable title for them to be looking at keeping him in the team back to the Msci we saw earlier in the season as opposed to his last piece of what we what we saw at Wembley on so I mean how much do you think that she has a decision that's going to get made I don't think it has a lot I'll be quite honest with you I don't think it has much at all after here in I had a chance to talk with jags owner shot con on Saturday right and I asked him go into the game what are your thoughts about the the game just general tossup wrapping up the interview right latch we'll we're in this business to win and we WANNA win it didn't come close to winning on on Sunday and they're behind able in the division now so for Doug Marrone to make decision like this maybe better win now this is this is third year the one playoff run in two thousand seventeen not threatening anything I'm just saying it like it is I think he's got to win football games and they can't worry about you know a year or two down the road let the decision makers that are responsible for that figure that out right and that's Tom Coughlin Dave Colwell jags owner shot con right Doug Doug Rone's to win football games and I think everybody around there and he said went put ballgames and they made the rest of this season and then he can figure it out because you you're tied to falls calls for a little while you're not GonNa unless you somehow trade him fine but not you know that's not GonNa be an easy trade and you're like what meant you can be me and there's some strong feelings that he could be guy moving ahead but you know moving ahead twenty twenty twenty twenty one right now moving his finger in December number and if you don't get through November and December you know who knows what's going to happen and twenty two thousand eight hundred we want around here Ted talks about Leonard Fournette he's one one of the most frustrating the epic matic characters in the NFL right now yeah because unbelievable talent and weed out pretty much from the the moment he landed in the nfl he's had injury issues of course enemies that off the field issues as well to an extent and he just blows so hot and cold cold Wembley on Sunday your up close and personal with a team each week every week you see everything jp what's the issue would let him for that why isn't he delivering on his obvious potential for I don't know that's a strong question for that I don't think he had a great performance on Sunday let's be fair enough gate this is maybe the strongest season he's had so far that is a fat point so maybe leave reverse the the question of all pivot a little bit as he turned the corner this season do you think we sing we finally seeing the phone that we expected to see you confident that is going to he's going to sustain it I think that's a that's a better way to look at it I think we've seen a lot of things in his game to promise some success the rest of the way the way they've called runs are different than the first three weeks they didn't run the ball much at all really the first three weeks and when they did they ran it out wide with a zone scheme even he had to make cuts and then go and that's just not his game up and didn't run well at all in the next few weeks you saw a little more straightforward gap blocking jean-louis run downhill between the tackles and find a hole and go yeah that success of course in Denver when he did that and the few weeks after that and they've used them a the passing game they don't have a real tight end threat right now so he's been passing game out of the Backfield so that's been a a little bit of a change to his game to it was a good game yesterday I'm not GonNa kill his season because of one game but I think there are still positives to what Leonard can do in the way he approaches weak the weak work and I I I some point expect him to be bouncing back especially if you can you better quarterback play to balance it out that was part of the thing that we're going to plug up the Ron and make Gardner mentioned beat them yesterday with basically three receiving options that was it Keelan coal they had Dj Charge and they had Chris Connelly finally other guys were really scared of it all right so let the rookie quarterback beach and plug

Cowboys overcome Fishy start in 31-6 rout

"It is the doomsday podcast in just moments after the cowboys thirty one six victory over the dolphins i am live from AT and t. stadium along with their onsite producer a DJ ring enberg frito back at the helm the mothership and then edward or who is all over the place last week in he will be back in back in business i'm certain ed there's no way in the world you would miss a trip to new orleans can i just go ahead and book you i don't even know if ESPN has a major schedule yet but you will be a new orleans won't you i have been informed warmed and canal officially announce that i will be covering the cowboys at the saints in the superdome next sunday night all right all right that is great news news beyond the scene and i am on the scene just moments ago talk to jerry jones will have some of that from my visit with jerry i actually also talked to tristen ill for a little bit we might sample that that'll be that'll be a check with me type situation because the trista didn't give me a whole heck of a lot ed before we just jump right into the hardest thing just thoughts right off the top did did you you see this sort of a slow start i mean it just think scream of the cowboys coming out flat today that surprise you at all or not really well i first of all i think the expectations for the cowboys in this game where fairly huge given how they performed offensively and the first two games against the giants it's and the redskins and then you're looking at a situation where they're favored by what twenty four points the biggest point spread in franchise history i mean to me this is like the cowboys always getting a chance to play the nineteen eighty nine version of themselves and so i thought it should be a game that would be quickly out of reach for the dolphins and and the fact that it was close at half i haven't quite honestly the couch we should have been behind it the half if not ver- kenyan drake stumble at the five yard line in the closing seconds of the first half i think think that's a little troubling but maybe brian florida's doesn't get enough credit you know keep in mind that eight months ago he was calling the defensive signals signals for bill belichick and the patriots as they beat the rams in the super bowl and so i i think in talking to some cowboys coaches after the game they're a little a bit of a tricky proposition from an offense point of view because of how they scheme and game plan the week in a whole different way just just like the patriots do they just don't have nearly the personnel to execute it over the course of course yeah and it was funny to see taco we'll talk about him taco charlton listen over on the other side line over and actually got some pretty good play in time for the dolphins and had a sack today but before we do that frito please play the doomsday music which which is the doomsday podcast and coming to you live from AT and t. stadium moments after a thirty one six ix of victory for the cowboys it was all academic wants the cowboys score to take it did feel like when they finally finally came out and it sort of took control in the second half seventeen six that the game was definitely over some trying moments in the first half in fact a ed eh you've already alluded to it the dolphins were down there with a good shot to go up thirteen ten knock on the door of course they had the dropped touchdown i mean i it was who is that receiver by the way i kind of like him is at preston somebody preston williams he ended up and you know i found that player i think you've gotta give chico a lot of credit because you really wound up knocking the ball out of very late in the play in the back of the end zone so credit him for playing through the entire play and causing the dolphins to lose what should have been a touchdown and eventually settled for yet another field goal yeah they did settle for that that bill it was you were monitoring the broadcast at least today was was anything made of y flores there's about five five minutes left in the first half when it all happened was there any reason why florist didn't go ahead and challenge that because upon review you you could have made the argument that it was an impact a catch he he made the catch he had like one step two step i think you can argue about for third step yep why in the world with somebody not in florida's year saying challenge that well in the value but touchdown to miami can't be understated they've gone ten consecutive quarters now without a touchdown but it did appear to me to possibly be a touchdown as you know i may have gotten a little ahead of myself on twitter because i i actually actually said that the dolphins had had we're now threatening to finally win a game and out river on who's the head of officiating creating the NFL actually did a video in which he showed that play and then confirmed that the ruling on the field by the officials wasn't fat correct uh-huh and so had florez challenge to play it would have been upheld on the field as an incompletion so it would have been done in vain ed our next x time where together i'm gonna show you on your twitter up how to delete things really quickly i know how to delete quickly i'm a a little stubborn in that regard well i know you know i was just gonna say that you know this is this is eh you i think the cowboys had the game won soon as eleven guys showed up at the stadium confirmed available to play that's how one sided it is in terms of talent between the cowboys who are among the upper echelon teams and the dolphins who are playing so poorly that many people are accusing them of tanking although after the game when jerry jones was asked about that outside the locker room he said showing a lack of effort on cape is the kiss of death in the NFL and so i think that was his way of saying the dolphins are not tanking their building for the future but it's clearly they've gone beyond what jerry jimmy did in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine right to begin the rebuilding process of their team by acquiring a lot of first round picks five picks in the first and second rounds in next year's draft and that's not unlike what the cowboys accumulated in the herschel walker trade that allowed them to build a super bowl dynasty the difference i think is and jimmy johnson pointed this out this week is that the cowboys already made that's right and acquire those fix after they already had michael irvin and emmitt smith troy aikman so a much different situation the dolphins are trading away some of their good young players even though they have them under the terms of you know contracts like make up its patrick this week week so the dolphins got i've gotten you know become a lesser team every week that despite that though you have to the cowboys credit they're three and for the first time jason garrison nine years is the head coach and we all believe that he asked to take the next step is stephen jones told us training camp that means reached the NFC championship game aim and i think this team has demonstrated three weeks in a row that they have that sort of talent on the roster and certainly that sort of potential all right and we will have what what edges referenced i have jerry saying that and then also several other things that jerry guide into after the game eh eh when you went thirty one six when a team does sometimes it seems a little strange to pick it apart but that's what we do do because that was a weird first half and it it screamed of a cowboys team that was not taking that team the other team seriously in fact you could certainly make the argument from a passer rating and just the overall numbers the young josh rosen had a better first half then dak prescott got prescott at halftime with nine for twenty borough a hundred six yards and an interception a passer rating of fifty seven point point five so we have celebrated the young man or his greatness for the first two weeks but ed he was really bad he's missing on wide wide open receivers and then of course he's over there just chuck in the ball up harem scare them in the middle of the field one pass that was intercepted in particular that that was a i know some people are like well that's the old deck well no that was just a bad deck that kinda showed that first half you know i think one of the coaches i talked to after the game put it in perfect perspective in that it wasn't prescott best game in fact it was probably by far his poorest of the three games that he's played this year in the kelly moore offense at the coach said quote if that's dax floor we're gonna win a lot of games this year sure so in other words if dagger that's as bad as dak prescott is capable of playing with the talent around him in the systems in then the cowboys expect back to have a phenomenal about success going forward i mean y- i thought he played his way out of it maybe it was a little careless with the football early on we use he's well-protected on the interception and just kinda he the down the middle of the field long hoping for the best and i don't think the ball ever had a chance of being completed and he took full responsibility for that right afterward somebody else he also demonstrated i thought the team the offense of group showed great resolve when they lost the touchdown to the connor williams williams penalty the long touchdown play randall cobb and they came right back in that series overcame the penalty and went down and scored again on the second touchdown pass amari cooper who was uncomfortable even by the dolphins best cornerback eggs avian hallard who decided a massive contract off season so i i wouldn't be that concerned about the way prescott played the game and i would actually be encouraged about the fact that he played well in the second half when the outcome was ultimately decided and they had their what they had two hundred yard rushers for the first time since what ninety five or something like that since emmett smith was playing so i think they showed a lot of capability even though at times they struggled and you wouldn't expect that with a great offense given the fact that this teams what margin of defeat point differential in three losses is one hundred seventeen which is the most modern NFL history after three games but we're pointing out new england was blew him out last week and they were it was a seven nothing gaming after yeah it was you're right it was a close game at halftime some of that game and i'm looking at it ed dak did come out you gotta you know we're going to get onto him for the forest start nine mm for nine or one hundred thirty seven yards and a touchdown and you're right had one called back big play called back it came right back it cooper on a pretty really big play and and that was you know sometimes when you in that third quarter first downs cowboys nine dolphins one total yards hundred seventy cowboys dolphins fourteen and that was when we saw the cowboys gone okay we got we got way more talented talented team and we're gonna go ahead and show you the exit that happened in that third quarter and act prescott added a rushing touchdown so he's got the most rushing touchdowns by any quarterback since he entered the league with nineteen at eight games with two touchdown passes and a rushing touchdown what you did against the dolphin that's dolphin that's three more than any other quarterback since he entered the league so he's a dynamic player and kelly moore continues to do a really good job of using him and all of his skill set whenever it's necessary and certainly when they get it position to score points if they continue to have great success in the red zone yet again i know they were stopped the one time and had to kick a field goal but overall they continue to have enormous success when they're in position to score touchdowns they've generally done that and that to it was the the biggest fault of team and what caused their their offense to have such problems scoring a year ago and ultimately was the vulnerability exploited in the play gosh all right we're going to get to a lot of this we need to talk about the defense defense was i don't struggle a little bit in the first half in finally kind in the second like a half took over the game but let's hear from the owner of the cowboys i had a chance to ask him questions did simba some funny funny stuff from jerry involving the great taco charlton who got several snaps at left defensive in for the dolphins here is jerry all the doomsday podcast did you keep an eye on a taco over there we did so i'm in the game and so i i am i guess he got credit for any real good i'm going to try to claim for that obviously brigades it plot the season's only three games in but you look at the NFC as if standings two-game lead on every other team in division well it is it is and you know we have that the ups and downs sounds and the momentum we've got a roughing the kicker call out there and i don't know if you felt it but it hit our momentum just a little bit just shows how quickly weekly these things turn that's our game and so we've learned that technique great technique on russian kickers you called back you'll have better stats doing that trying to hit rubbish rubbish queen didn't protest guys together we talked about that before raising the fist i didn't do it i don't know if you had done in miami and certainly with around the forehead well l. i know robert to be very genuine he's always been very janney one i was told about his character his high character i really saw and when he got a bum rap was a bum rap on that suspension and that that the old deal that's not me that's that's not that's not that's not him that's not him as a person and that i just hated it so much for him and i don't wanna by bringing it up bring it up because he's so past that and he's one of the top character people we've had on this date and again i don't wanna get into any detail about that and but i know this his his his character his book his record in the NFL is such high high character and i do want to emphasize that i know he's had things relative to some of these social things but not any but to it you see the direction it's engendered by by looking at his character he's that strong in his beliefs lifson and his character and i i can't believe that in the short time he's been here he's made the impressions made and certainly for me feel about jason wins catch on third and twenty or you move your mind he's making plays he wasn't making fifteen years ago he did have that imagination he must have watched that on monday night but but seriously i'm seeing him out there making placen and we talked about either coming back or heading straight downfield banfield when dag get some running room there get slammed probation provision time well he's the leader of the pack and getting it done i've i'm looking forward to what to seize brings about him and prescott what did you make of the would you would you make the two headed monster lingerie or running back there had been talk about putting them in the same it finally happened in in this game which would you make the way it worked out well i really am so so impressed i i i just have such an appreciation for pollard and his th there's some similarity actually with the way he approaches and feels out where the soft spots are there's actually similarities z. but not not any but to it but then he turns on those burners but i think that we will see them often at the same in time in the game because they both are outstanding route receivers period much less as a as a running back but i am really pleased he gets it he's he's as though he just really came in and acclimated to his assignments to his dude especially especially in his blocking assignments he's he's he's a real fine for it gets better taxes anything to tony what do you say to just the something like that winker cheery there's a guy who uses two running backs in new orleans and associated with the team before what did you think of sean yeah well i know this i think a lot of that organization maki and everybody involved there and miss benson and so that's nothing surprising about that and they they recognize has everything that sean is about positively in and which is what he's about and then spies me and all they want to keep him there he's he's a big part of the fabric of new orleans room was arrested flood would rumors to rest in what rumors what rumors that i would you know we really are overnight tampering jerry taylor horsing horsing hamilton lancaster covering it guys extended this off season they make their money or you locked away both of them were were that had meaningful in how we got together especially in that second half they set the tone made the plays to the earlier question what's on the rest of the conference are you starting to feel like a favorite again you think the cowboys were getting that i well i think that aw that we're getting better and i thought that we have the personnel and particularly rewarded by how well our coaching staff is doing this young coaching staff this young across the board i you say well you got married in there he'll bring their average up but other than that too young by shop i put right as my top two three things about this team issue saying jerry i don't want to beat the thing but you feel like you needed to talk to him about that before the season expect him all on protesting interesting now who of who we talk no i didn't have any thought i wanted him that we we recruited in we wanted him here we know what i have found out is that he is more impactful character wise than i could have ever imagined but i didn't think that was necessary terry wanted take after said negotiated directly casey what is your response i aw i don't have a response to the what the NFL would determine but i do know that we really hammered out a great i great working relationship with with days and that were great what i didn't know that was going to come from the time i spent with him at the negotiation at length for hours is just how much i would be impressed with how coolly is in terms of not not as an entertainer but just as how genuine and have really individuals jason and so the hours and hours the most that i got out of it was just became such a fan of his as just a a fellow human being and in his approach to business the professions and his approach to people that he addresses and it made a difference to know that he was going to be influencing this clammy team was time under a microscope as as far as may be intentional tanking or things like that do you think that's harmful over the NFL of teens going that direction where they intentionally tried to lose games to get a better graphic well i've again i'm not trying to be naive about your point point that you're making i don't know what it because the games irs requires so much physical and these guys pal such in general limited careers and so their their game ribs how they are basically putting it on tape for everybody to see not just their team but for all the teams that are going to be looking at they should become free agents or whatever it just is not conducive with them individual violent to not the mike and the knapsack next nap the best i'm happy done and that's just as faction on something have what somebody might markdown as a load doc but even at that it can't be confused with not competing so not competing on a piece of tape and NFL's kiss deaf are you worried about your alma mater that was obviously a pretty low day for for that group and i know how much you you love that school rule in the current program yeah and i really am because the coach i know on a personal basis for his time here in dallas his son plays with my grandson they had cooked up on a fifty yard touchdown passed the other night skied and so so you know but just as important or even more important i don't wanna talk hogs and i have such a lifetime vested in them and benefited so much from what i got and was given my time there that i just anytime i see them struggling that bothers there's me and then of course jon stephen i've just i know how he's trying to fit something in the eye of the needle edel it's it's it's channels be a starting quarterback in the SEC and so i know that he understands that boys just got to fall and you gotta be ready and competing so the time comes but very few people have ever that breathe air have ever done it starting for the as an SEC quarterback in college football so he's asking i'm talking jesse yes asking for a tall paul accomplishment level much harder than own in the dallas cowboys alright gary was this is only jerry could on a variety of topics including is he was asked about his his time of it with jay z. in really gave some stilted enters of of what actually he said to JC and how some of that negotiation wit for dez bryant so an interesting it was such a you know thirty one six one way boy this is where vegas great ed you said you saw align that went up twenty four is what i've seen was twenty three but even if it went to twenty four what it ended up being like twenty five so it is remarkable how how often they get it right and so the cowboys were most in most places able to cover in this game with down there for in scored at the end and we get to the defense what do you make of that two headed monster you talked about it i i've always had trouble believing they're actually going to use powered much as they say they are but hey so far so good garb ta for bobak but still i think i think you gotta be they got him on the field at the same time you gotta be encouraged by what you're seeing from from what look what appears to be to pretty dynamic backs yeah i think you know we've made the point that when they drafted tony pollard in the fourth round it was not so so much just to safeguard that position in case ezekiel elliott held out which he did although not into the regular season but they really envisioned he would have his most profound impact when elliott was you know also available and elliott rush for one hundred twenty five yards in pollard had a hundred and three and yeah it was probably in a situation relation where the game was mostly in hand although he played sporadically even before that last week they demonstrated that they trust this rookie because he played the last series the third quarter and that allowed them to rest elliott and then play fresh with the lead in the fourth quarter as kind of their hammer to end the game and so i think the coaches continue to demonstrate that you know tony policy guy that they have a lot of trust in a guy that's going to have a role even when elliot is healthy and available and even when they elliott's productive like he was in this game today and and quite honestly elliott to his credit keeps perfectly fine with that fact so i believe this is the first time dallas has had two hundred rushers here's in a game since emmett smith and chris warren in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight so it's been it's been quite a while and i think it's invaluable to them to be able to use elliott in in this way because we all know he has been the most overused back in all the football having by far the most heaviest workload since he came into the NFL twenty johny sixteen is a fourth overall pick and so anything that they can do to preserve him and make him more effective toward the end of the season and obviously they help to play two more games this year they played last year if they can reach their goal of getting to a super bowl and hopefully he'd be more effective late in the year if they can and continue to find ways to use toni ballard in and today was the first time that they use them both together so we continue to see tony politics role bro and his productivity have the same sort live trajectory a i wanted to to to let you go since you are very close to that whole saints family me and you know that whole group and the mickey loomis the general manager and certainly sean payton and at whole crew over the years breeze after the game jerry was asked i don't know i felt like these staffed while to do that for the game but they wanted to know could they finally put all the sean payton rubers kabaddi because sean payton contract extension what is it five year contract extension engine now if i know sean there's some kind of out clause in there i mean there's always something that would allow sean payton to get out of that if he needed to but whatever let's call it a five year contract extension and jerry and you couldn't really tell on this the reason i'm bringing this up but she couldn't really tell on on on tape what it sounded ended like because jerry just stop talking and he's in and he said what rubers and so he acted like he acted like ed that he's never heard a rumor over yes yes acted like this i know it i know that there have been times during jason's ten jason guarantee ten years the head coach coach where sean payton certainly felt like if he had wanted the cowboys job he could have gotten and so he didn't pursue it ultimately and i think he's also being challenged right now in playing without drew brees in a way that he's not experienced as the saints coach three in in games at brees has not been available to start so sean payton in thirteen years is thanks coach go into today had never won a game without drew brees is starting pretty quarterback so that's a challenge for sean payton as is the fact that you know the cowboys turn them upside down on offense last year and with crystal shard using his era to really frustrate breeze and payton they had their worst game together last year and the loss to dallas and a lot of teams that play like the math words used adopted many of the same tactics and did so successfully so i think it's going to be an interesting game next week to see how peyton handles that it regardless of what they do in seattle today yeah and by the way what they're doing in seattle is the fact that bridgewater is eleven for fifteen hundred hundred bob yards and a touchdown and they are driving while up twenty two seven as we as we record this and so bridgewater seems to be on his game of course they've got that running game they they figured out over the years how to use a two headed monster and so very interesting the whole the the friendship friendship in the history of of jerry and sean payton alright list discuss ed this cowboys defense i thought there were some pretty not i didn't think they really got after rosen in the first half they obviously we're able to to finally make a play down there and could you tell we couldn't totally tell it the game it looked like on the fumble that jalen smith was involved who really got in there we know who recovered it that was lawrence but who who got in there and really should be credited for forcing that fumble i mean we can always look at the actual you know what the what they decided on the final deal here that was jailed smith got credit for is that what it looked like to you you know what i would i would probably not credit anybody on defensive causing the fumble double whole real and kenyan drake and the situation really did a poor job of protecting the football did appear to me the ball was directly hit by anybody it wasn't you know stripped out he just failed to control the ball with his back to the defense in a situation where protecting the ball is the most important thing and he obviously failed in that responsibility and and wound up hurting his team i don't know if it made a difference the ultimate outcome of the game but denied the dolphins chance to you know have the lead at halftime and it was just a poor job kenyan drake who was a good player but you gotta protect the ball in that situation and he didn't i would say that in talking into the defense the defense coaches that the thing that stood out to them was you know the physicality that the cowboys showed on defense that their their willingness to hit and their effort level even though they did not initially get a lot of pressure on on rosen in the game that they did play hard hard and they did hit and we're a physical presence of course jeff heath obviously knocked alan hearns out of the game early on with a pretty vicious that many people thought should have been penalised and obviously it wasn't and from what i saw i didn't think it should have been looked like he was they're both playing the ball and they kinda hit face to face if anything but it appeared that hers was unconscious briefly but that was the result of his head hitting the ground from the collision in with heat not the collision itself yeah i you know i would disagree in the sense that if we're actually going to be whether or not they're both going for the ball if we're actually going to call these guys defenseless i thought that was a textbook version of the receiver was completely defenseless whether that was jefferson tent or not to go in there and be i mean deliver some kind of issues hit now part of that is i have made fun of jeff over the years because yes i do think more than almost anybody in the NFL he is a head hunter and he ended one guy's career or the seattle seahawks that guy was fortunate to ever walk again and so i do i personally i think i kind of have it out for a little bit on that front but that was i i mean i don't know that's a hard one to say now on the the other stuff that was going on i i know stretch we're gonna have stretch on in a minute you'll he'll give grades i know one of the big problems he has with us defense right now i mean cowboys allowed six points let's not let's not go crazy on the defense's performance but i think he just doesn't think they play them well all like they will out at the ball got guys that are good coverage abridging can be there byron jones broke up some passes but like today for instance a woozy as down there seems to be in decent shape i never finds the ball gets called for the deep a pass interference i i just i mean who on this defense is really really really good at playing the ball and i think that's a question you know i think it's gonna be something the cowboys have to continue to answer but it it is a shortcoming it has been a shortcoming of theirs they did get the red zone fumbles so that was the key turnover in the game and it's one of the reasons i think that the cowboys had interest when the dolphins were trying to trade benefits patrick who by the way wanna being traded to the steelers and already has an intersection and it's very first game in pittsburgh uniform but obviously the dolphins wanted a first round pick and the cowboys weren't willing to give that up and i i mean i can understand that because you know if you wanna go two years in a row without a first round pick gave last year is up for amari cooper to help their current team and they could have probably done much the same for their defense at they've been willing to do it in this particular circumstance but i'm not sure sure fitzpatrick really merits the cowboys first round pick and i don't know that adding him helps them achieve you know going to an NFC championship chip game or a super bowl i'd still like to see some of the other players that they that had good training camps get an opportunity back there i mean they they obviously played the game name somewhat compromised on defense and you know the the dolphins are are horrible team on offense like i said they hadn't scored a touchdown in ten quarters but i think donovan wilson's a guy we need to see secondary he has three interceptions in the preseason like to see if he can be a guy who is a catalyst to create some interceptions that have been lacking for a number of years with this defense i liked i liked gary and thompson i mean he was one of the guys who did what we talk about physical players in the in the lineup especially around the goal line early on so yeah i agree with you i thought he was he made his presence felt in a very physical sort of way and i thought thought you would like this you're always a guy that's dig up nuggets and everything so i had a little brief conversation with trista hill i'm not even gonna it wasn't that great the audio read i thought this was interesting he was making his his first appearance as a cowboy after being inactive and the first two games this is the second round pick out of central florida you and i talk to his college defensive coordinator radi shannon and i think that generated a lot of interest just kinda cool he actually went in there in a couple of key plays in in in fact some of what he did help lead one key sack is i recall what i was asking him about you know what was it like get ready for this was the nervous all that kind of stuff and of course he you know he kind of laughed when he said he brought you know that marinelli believed in him and he said that meant a lot to him what else he said that interested me is that he said sean and lee has been the player staying on him in writing him and driving him i thought that was interesting that sean lee veteran in linebacker would be the guy that was kind of in interest in the hills ear and that was the first name that tristan he'll brought up it wasn't bertarelli it was sean lee has been all over me to stay ready and and i give him a lot of credit i just thought that was kind of interesting i i think that's one more reason you know that's one more way the cowboys justify paying sean lee six million dollars even though he's now moved to strong side linebacker might play a little over a dozen snaps in a game certainly doesn't play the number that he did before late vandereycken was drafted before jalen alan smith became a starter but he's certainly has value in that regard holds people accountable and yeltsin prepare and i'm sure he serves that same purpose with you know late vandereycken j. smith even going into their second or third and fourth seasons second or teams so yeah i think that's how you justify writing a six million dollar check for sean lee every year last thing and then we'll let you go i want to get your take on the cowboys going to three and the first time in the jason garrett era is that right is this the first time correct and and then eagles loose news today and and he calls her out to game fine cowboys we've thought this is going to be a two team raised we didn't think the eagles were going to like start falling out of the race and they're not completely out of the race obviously we saw the cowboys come back in it last year after they had started at four and five or whatever it was or five and six and they kind of you know we're able to fight back into it but where do you you talk to some of the coaches you've done all your due diligence where do you kind of feel like if the cowboys think they are at this point other than the obvious that there are two games clear of the lead in the NFC east yeah well i think the fact that you know they've been able to scoring offense like they have thirty points or more every game three weeks in a row the fact that dak prescott is clearly a much improve quarterback and what was the seventy fifth touchdown pass if this career and just fifty one games fastest quarterback in cowboys history to achieve that tony romo get sixty three games so it'd be romo by a dozen games but the fact that they've got a rookie and tony pollard who's able to contribute to the running game and get involved in the third down passing aspect of the game if they can keep if they can stay healthy i think there is good as anybody there is out there in the NFC now i think they're going to be challenged far more going forward than they have been to this point i mean the dolphins were you know the the worst ranked offense the worst ranked defense they scored the fewest it's going to allow the most so you know and we're on the road for the first time so winning against them is no great accomplishment that being said you can only meet the people that your schedule has you playing weak the weak and they're going to be fortunate next week and they're not gonna face drew brees superdome but there are challenges and adversities surely they're going to have to deal with i think you've gotta like the way you gotta feel good about the kind of offense that kelly moore's created the diversity that he's brought to the offense so i think there are a lot of things for the cowboys to be optimistic about as a finished the what the fourth final final quarter of the first phase of the season next week in in the superdome i think they'd have to have good about that yeah and by the way ed while we've been recording this the saints have now gone up twenty twenty seven to seven and bridgewater is on a roll i think sixteen for twenty one now just threw another touchdown pass and they are rolling right now at seattle in just horrible conditions of it's raining like crazy wound seattle and i'd say it's really the first time is really the first time teddy bridgewater played well in any start for the saints he's made he didn't play well when he replaced breeze for three quarters last week against the rams which is definitely a challenging assignment to go against wake phillips's defense in a in a game on the road when you're not expecting to play but i think there's this demonstrates that there's a reason that the saints traded to acquire teddy bridgewater from the jets and there's a reason after his first year with them that they made him the highest paid backup quarterback in football to remain on the roster with them and not pursuing starting job somewhere else yeah i am i'm with you and i think it turned it turned into what looks like a genius move by them ed good stuff and excited to hear from you i'll be out in studio next i in it unless i just decide i may i may just bring the doomsday crew to new orleans super dome i mean i think he's i should just pile into connor and head on yeah it'd be a lot easier than getting a credential here i mean lord health they make me jump through about a million hoops i've covered a taper seventeen years but that's okay i'm not gonna not gonna get into that right now and good stuff really appreciate you to talk to you we'll do it again

actually stretch marks love stretch marks because he does give his marks and he gives his grades it is glenn stretch smith former cowboys coach and scout for college coach former college football player joining us of man has so many credentials i am live at the stadium from the beautiful suite high above actually on the silver over level looking down the cowboys stadium in the aftermath of a thirty one six win and stretch it was a you know workmanlike type win in the second half half certainly a really poor performance by the cowboys in that first half let's start with the defense deep interest struggled a little bit obviously offense mate's mistakes as well but but defense let's start on that back in you've been critical of this secondary i liked the play of dairy tops and fill in for xavier woods i thought he actually makes a pretty good place but what did you make of the secondary well again i mean you know both lose EA and and byron jones are really good cover guys but it you know we talked about this week one i it's mind blowing how they cannot get their hands hands on the football you know woozy gets called for the PI and he's in great position just turn and look for the football and you know i i don't want to be critical of the job that the coaches have done because obviously you know this is a good football team but secondary very wise i i don't understand why they don't get their hands on more football they are in position more to make more plays and it it really is i i it's one of those things where it almost looks does it's contagious right now guys you you're gonna get in these football games especially when things aren't clicking up instantly like you know what happened in the first half the cowboys today against the better football team where you need a play you need you need to stem the tide and i i mean i just don't see that and i agree with you i mean i think thomson did a really good job or woods and you know it's awesome awesome good things as far as coverage wise but did your hand on the football i it just it blows me away that that three times today lose as in position and cannot even touch the football and i'm telling you it looks contagious from from from what happened to byron jones last week and to me that's alarming because you've got to be able when you start talking about playing you know the sean take the world which they got the saints next week you start you know aaron rodgers green bay i mean you got to get your hands on some footballs and boy i i i mean i hope that something that you know that that they start to work on and maybe they are working on it i i you know i i don't know i don't go over there and i certainly don't want to be critical of that i try to i try to stay away from that really watched the film and and and studying and let my is kinda see give an honest opinion but they gotta get their hands on some footballs yeah yeah i wish you could see my eyes right now they're behind sunglasses and you know i love to put my eyes on some of these things stretch as you move to linebacker do you like i thought jalen finally they hadn't looked great today i thought jalen and the man bandrich the wolf how they kind of got going a little bit today and finally in that second half and even the first half to a certain extent did make some plays what did you think of the linebacking core well the linebacker played well i mean this is the first time we've seen them really cut loose and let them blitz a little bit now i you know personally i believe that that's they're getting ready ready they're getting that ready for sunday night getting that timed up and and you saw you saw them you know wreck havoc getting the sa- get get back in in in and and really cause some problems with the protections that miami was using and and so i you know i i the football players matt i mean i you know and i'll rolled well you know i'll roll it right over into the defense of front i thought it was great seeing quinn back in there i thought that you were able to see some of the younger guys did and make some place some of the tackles who are you know who able to get in there i i even saw hill in there a little bit i you know i i think they have a really nice rotation all in all all i thought which is the effort that you saw today from the defense i mean pretty much graded a b i mean above a you know a good performance but nothing great and again very concerning that they are not getting their hands on the football so you know let let's let's give the defense abi as there's a whole i do like i do like the thomson i thought he made a great play on that ball i love that he kept his head up you know what i mean they could they gotta really penalized asked him there on that scene too hearn and he was able to he you know he was going to make a play on the football i think he's a smart young man i liked the rotation defensive line i liked it you saw quinn and they're obviously he can get over the you know he can get over the edge that causes you to causes them to have to turn some things back so i overall all i think the defense gave you a b. effort today but they've got to get their hands on small footballs in the secondary yeah that would be all the the the side and always stop the quarterback pretty pretty poor performance in the first half nine for twenty didn't have a whole lot going on through that pick just kind of harem scare them ran you know world outright and just chunked it up for grabs basically miami he made a play on the ball what what did you make i he did respond really nicely in the third quarter and kind of tighten things up what did you make of the first kind of a tough performance for dak prescott this season yeah you again and i mean i really thought that that the whole team was i i mean was flat flat i mean they they they came out really flat and and and i thought the quarterback play that way i mean he he you know he could have easily ran that the right through that ball late over the middle i mean those are things i think that he'll correct it's almost like if you're a cowboy fan you wanted to see this you wanted me to see them kind of have one of those lackadaisical efforts where they can hey go back and focus and no i it's hard to stay focused when you're when you're watching didn't you know when you're when you're watching the team like miami who you know had not played good the first two weeks i mean given up they gave up seven sacks last week i mean it's it's hard to watch him they you know given up on makeup it's patrick and i mean just the real lax days ago first half i i'd i think doc will learn from that i'm not it's hard to they name great wise because i don't think he made a lot of mental errors i think he i think he did some things things trying to get outside of the pocket that were unlike him but those are things that to me are very correctable and offensively i thought the second half is what you want to see the cowboys do he checked a couple of times too little speed option when they were running when they were going to run a little blitz off the edge and and and i like that i i i just think that all in all you saw you saw what was a flat cowboy team in the quarterback played that way and and you they make the corrections in the second half so you know overall a be effort by the quarterback be all the way around so far wide receivers cevers maury had a nice day cobb had one call back thought smith made a couple nice plays with all these guys kinda are pretty good at running after the cat they'll kind of get in there and and they seem to be pretty physical receiver for the most part even these guys that aren't that big what did you make the wide receivers elissalde the tight ends in there as well obviously witten made a couple of really nice place yeah yeah y. y smart player i mean i i don't know if you saw the game he even he even even at one time check wanted to make sure they were on the same page i'm gonna try to pull that audio to not going to channel eight but i mean he makes check where he sees the blitz it's the same way to quarterback sees the blitz you know receiver wise they get football they run good routes what i like is they blocked the perimeter and we saw two running backs today rush for a hundred yards for the cowboys and the reason they rushed one hundred yards obviously we know offensive line you got a great offensive line here but really blocked the perimeter well and and and that's something that's hard to get receivers to do i mean i mean they they they feel like hey i'm paid to catch football but when you see amari cooper when you see cop she smith down the field getting blocks to me see that that shows what type of team you got here and there unselfish they're they're they're flying around they're making plays i i mean i can't give if this receiving core anything but an aide day unbelievable job tight ends another story i mean i saw jar one time a ah dak breaks out of the pocket and jar when standing in the flat with a guy right behind him and i mean he's you know he looks like he's waving his arms trying to trying to land when those was helicopters and that's a bad look i mean joe schultz needs to pick his game up darwin dropped the ball in the flat so i mean a very really other than whitten almost below average effort from your body and and that's got to get better because quite frankly the way see that this offense and what they like to do with their with their schemes with their personnel groups sometimes they gotta they wanna play with three tight ends and so those are the two guys they've got to pick pick this game up but overall i mean a good job really good job by the receivers and a really good job by jason witten and you know jar and scholtz it's just that they walked around out there today i mean they they played about like about like job boards did the whole first half all right the tight ends getting a little bit of a rough grade there from shows like other than whitney would have given them a c. or something like that but whitton maybe get some up to a c. plus what about running backs combined in for two hundred twenty eight yards and a touchdown would you make of the two headed monster the cowboys through it the dolphins today well i i you know and i like there were a couple of snaps that they put them both both in the backfield same time i thought it was you know again i think it's beyond offensive staff continuing continuing to you know to try to get those personnel matchups i think both these running backs obviously a heck of a player he's playing himself into shape and and a and he looks really good pollard show some things i mean he showed some burs to be able to to to hit it up in there on his touchdown and and and again i mean and i can give nothing but praise to the running backs and and how they played today a b. plus effort for both of those guys blocked well you know rand screens they can catch football so i i like i like the direction in the in the upgrade that they've given themselves pollard over what it was you know smith last year old line it for the most part held up i mean there's always going to be some holding ending calls because this is the NFL we we have now in holding goals have been up like sixty five percent this season but for the most part where you pretty impressed impressed by the old line play yeah i thought they played really well i mean i thought both those holding calls were really really marginal calls i mean the the the the hands were not outside of the framework and so i you know the thing that i think the NFL's got to understand is they're gonna pack being defense they're gonna pack down in there they're trying to make you get that ball outside and the two times at the cowboys got it outside they should have been i mean they should have been should have been big runs and the first thing you know the stamps holland's holden and yeah you can really call hold in every play but i mean when the hands are inside the framework i just thought about both those were marginal calls i do i think lyle collins guys is a heck of a football player i really do i mean tired and gets all that gets all the credit for from tackle perspective but but lila is really really really come into his own and so i think this offensive line is going to continue to get better i think frederick he you know we we we haven't talked much about him because you know coming back and trying to play himself back into shape and that's not always easy to do but i don't the offensive line did an outstanding job today and and and really a b. plus effort to the offensive line a marginal a in and they would have had a day had they not been given those holding those holding penalties all right almost borderline grade right there but at eighty nine for the offense of life only a i really heard was the wide receivers i think you did give them an a. but the tight end certainly had adopt them a little bit taught they were out there flopping around a little bit stretch good stuff of woken out on tonight he'll be out there with dole hansen on WFAN channel eight in dallas are you going to have the cavalry cheese on the monitor i'm gonna ah throw a little curveball tonight in the footwear but i'm glad that you're hold me accountable and i know i know i know i know our boy frito he producer he's he's kind kind of footwear chaban so maybe maybe you'll be able to help you out in school you up on what i'm wearing to matt i appreciate you noticing moseley yeah you bet frito bringing guest into the show tonight so always good when frito brings a guest to the show that's always kind of nice to see good stuff stretch i'll talk to you soon okay good evening guys very goes glenn stretch smith with his stretch marks and it is well that's about a rap i mean we we we did some strong work there ed was in colorado for this one and gotta hold him DJ reagan bergen i on the scene out here at cowboys AT and t. stadium and kind of putting the wraps on this thirty one to six effort cowboys cowboys continue to march on one thing we've observed of course frito nation productions do an incredible job for us of frito one thing we've observed from out here is that these saints these seitz had a whole week to prepare they have gone to seattle and while they lead has been trimmed at twenty seven fourteen who knows maybe maybe maybe they'll cough this thing up but it appears that the saints will be ready at home for the cowboys and finally somewhat of a challenge alledged i love that i'm hearing people say well cowboys kind of needed this they needed to be kinda jostled around a little bit i hear the same thing about taylor bears we needed some problems against the rice owls no it's never good to get pushed around in the first half against a lesser team name you want to get out there and you ought to take advantage of it cowboys didn't do it today if they play like this against new orleans they will lose they will lose lose their first game of the season cowboy sitting here at three and oboe time the jason garrett arab thank you to everyone thank you to hodges hodge's capital thank you for what you do

"Special thanks to visa for sponsoring today's podcast visas dedicated to their vision of being the best way to pay the be paid everywhere worldwide visa has the capacity to process over sixty five thousand transaction messages every second finally understand this team and is very simple when they are at full strength they can play with anyone and they can look great as soon as you you know coming into this game thinking that the eagles were a lot better than the cowboys you'd have to lead thinking that the cowboys right now because regardless of what we thought I show the way he always is and the other four meetings against the Philadelphia Eagles so for me this was a dominant dominant performance by the cowboys visa everywhere you want to be we begin the Oranje with Sunday night football you got Carson Wentz and the Eagles in Dallas to face Dak Prescott and the cowboys and this was one way to break it three ate him workout on Friday meeting go full speed Tyron Smith was back in the lineup so if we look at the last year of Football Win Amari Cooper for the season regardless of what we would with their injuries teams are adapting and right now the teams that we see and that's the Dallas cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles team great is a great team win the best complimented football we've played all year long offense defense defense making plays getting us on the and finally through seven weeks of the season and a few months of off season where we talk about the cowboys almost every day see I think I have finally figured the cowboys out I aim scared feeds Zeke that fourteen nothing in the I finished with one hundred and forty seven yards from scrimmage second quarter now Dak connects with Blake Darwin to put the boys they go on to win thirty seven to ten and with that they now take sole possession of first place in the NFC tears Dak Prescott after the win twenty one seventy eagles trying to stay in it that doesn't help whence intercepted in the fourth one of his three turnovers on the day bad day for the eagles cowboys I saw was a lot better than the eagles I don't know who the Philadelphia Eagles are and the Dallas cowboys they did get good news late in the week you start to see Amari Cooper they being together capitalize on the turnovers it was a hard hitting game in this fierce rivalry took advantage of those turnovers creating big place Ezekiel Elliott was it was nice to see the cowboys back at full strength because over the last three weeks we know what type of cowboys team we're going to see it was a spectacular performance by Dallas move not multiple just one of their potential key ingredient whether that Tamari or Tyron Smith or Zeke is we saw the suspension if you remove any one of those things plus out of the field is being able to capitalize on them being able to do that early score touchdowns early just something that we've been trying to get to all year long and we're able to do that tonight bruce healthy and available for day when Tyron Smith is a healthy healthy and available for the cowboys they're a good offense football team and you could see last night they put every all right we'll talk about the eagles in just a second but as far as the cowboys are concerned did they prove last night they're the best team in the NFC east if you weren't on their faces they want to be at their disaster they can lose the jets they can get beat down thirty one to three Green Bay but when we found out Saturday six we were concerned about was the one corner and Dallas when they have their full complement of players go out there and do this to you now it's an indictment on the afternoon that it looks like wait not one but both tackles are going to play not just amaury but Amari an Randall Cobb we're gonNA play that changed for me some of the analysis of the mm-hmm we talked on Friday about how the cowboys had injuries that were clustered at critical spots there tackles there wide receivers they're corners the only player who ended up missing of those of the season with a grain of salt because of the opposition yesterday was against a good team they were full strength but it was a balanced attack that you saw from the cowboys and as you said it was probably the best really well Zeke you mentioned it now. Averaging one hundred sixty three yards from scrimmage in his five career games against the eagles the cowboys are five win those games but is he would he be the answer he was back no I don't think so because their defense is not a good defense their linebacking core because they have so many elite if you look at the San Diego chargers the La chargers and if you look at the Philadelphia Eagles there is no there's no one who's raiding the rosters dominated in last night's game so I'm surprised that Philadelphia because they are very very talented and they're only missing a couple pieces to Sean Jackson we know that he's out all around game we've seen them on the other side of it you have to wonder we talk about this identity that the eagles seem to not have they showed none of that yesterday how concern to you I'm do have a number of injuries but so do a number of other teams that are managing a lot better I would add another team to that list maybe not in the top five is talent but certainly top five are still in question so to me how do they get it back together having the deepest roster that we've seen this here's a great example talent is not enough early and I know you said we're going to get to it phillies a team that I and I think many people just flatly got wrong about how talented are they really but for the cowboys Dak equals put out there well I'm concerned I'm concerned about their offensive line for say this three year window they've been in we've always talked about how great they are the game may be tricked us a bit on Philly and maybe confirmation bias as far as the team that they said they were going to be that they could be that team but this team doug all boys were spectacular and to me did assert themselves as the best team in the division because who is Philadelphia I think we took Dow says I three wins would not have these two rushers in the top five but we have seen both of these organizations struggle this year so talent this year obviously is not enough three was spectacular in the first half tried to put the game away in the first half of twenty seven to seven at the end of the half with the Butler sixty three yard field goal and it was often running the but through this season they've given no evidence of it I think we might look back and say wow the outlier event of the NFL season was Philadelphia going to Green Bay in winning and he keeps his arms in that sometimes on TV those balls are a little more deceptive and to me it looked like his gate was a little off like he didn't want to pop his Hamstring Lane Johnson we always talk about man he play left tackle he's so good but not only do they have Peter Stir left tackle out Johnson's not playing well at the right tackle this football game it's it's they're down twenty points with eleven minutes left and went throws what I thought was maybe his best ball of the night the deep past Aguilar tackles hurt you can take advantage of the linebacking corps and run the ball against them so we knew the defense had two question marks linebacking corps and the secondary bowls town the Atlanta Falcons which right now one of the worst teams in football like you're you're totally correct the talents not enough and Philip Listen Philadelphia might be on paper a good team nate day got off to distort that phillies said they wanted to get off to phillies said Oh we're going to take the ball we're GONNA get off to a good start Dallas struggled mightily in the first half of games dating back to week crossed the field and you can see it right here Adler doesn't even try for I mean he just I don't know if you're going to catch that hey guys nick right here to talk about light stream credit card bills every month you get them with for you and the team and I'm hesitant to ever leveled this criticism the team's effort level seems to be far lower than I'm used to he's at light stream get a rate as low as five point nine five percent apr with auto-pay lower than the average credit card interest rate of overnight ultimate payments and multiple due dates wouldn't be easier to just have one payment Atta lower rate well you can with credit card consolidation loan for my friend had a big game last night the game we've been waiting for one hundred eleven yards and a touchdown on the ground to go along with six catches for thirty six yards through the air nick put a greater eighteen percents APR plus the rate is fixed so it will never go up over the life of the loan you can get a loan from five thousand two hundred thousand dollars they are team that is struggling with confidence and they are struggling to figure out who they are and you can see where once that beginning of that game went wrong the too early since trying to pull out all his starts working guarantee a victory all for the first time since week thirteen of two thousand sixteen we win the toss were taken the ball how'd that work out turnovers there was a bit of a waving the white flag they had one drive all game and it was extended by thirty yards of personal foul penalties they were unable to move the ball they were unable to string injury after scoring touchdown stock some kirk cousins see has he proven he can carry this team is one of those breath no fees and you can even get your money as soon as the day you apply just for first things first listeners apply now to get a special it every time you hit him he gets the extra two yards fallen folks it was also if you listen to any of his press conference the happiest he's been after a game so far this one onto the vikings in the lines that if you had doubts about kirk cousins coming in you did not have them going out causes threw for three hundred thirty seven yards and for the second straight game threw four touchdowns stefan digs who had one hundred sixty seven yards last week had one hundred forty two in this one in Dalvin Cook finished with so I can understand the rest of the team but one play does not make a game of court no no and that to me was the reason I wanNA show was to me it was indicative of what I saw auto pay discount terms and conditions apply offers are subject to change without notice visit dot com slash from them throughout the night late on the next drive you got to play with an opportunity I thought out of bounds and get a first down and just goes down Philly to me right now because many times he'd made people miss look more explosive he looked on edge he even took to the sideline then back into traffic I think a plus this is the best Joel interest rate discount the only way to get this discount is to go to light stream dot com slash F. T. F. that's L I g you stopped Dallas in what was their biggest game of the season wasn't great but for Dallas who did put it all together they did look good so time for putting a great on it sponsored by Carmax Ezekiel Elliott H. T. S. T. R. E. A. M. dot com slash f. t. f. of course subject to credit approval rate includes zero point five overs aim I've seen him exciting for the Dallas cowboys to have him at full strength because he is a special special run Zeke was doing what we're used to seeing as a rookie and second year falling anyway he's been phenomenal the last three weeks we should give them credit for that and their schedule has eased up a little bit so the Vikings can get on a little run he has three hundred twenty five yards passing a game one thirty nine quarterback rating he has been sensational and to the point about the schedule they get Washington on Thursday they the niners like that top of the NFC is stacked but for them to go to Detroit Detroit team that we talked about at two one going into this game but could have been matt to Chris Carter was is the eagles for Ezekiel Elliott no matter what no matter the year no out of the circumstance on Mackillop you gotta give an like every single game he's ever played against them improve though because he's taken care of the ball not making bad decisions with the football and spreading the ball around to your point about these last three weeks ten touchdowns one next week before they face Kansas City with assuming no Patrick Mahomes and then a couple of weeks later they have Denver so they act like seven and the eight and three is a very realistic possibility for these Minnesota Vikings which is critical given what the packers are doing given what other teams in the NFC are doing the same forgotten this he went for another game where you went for a buck forty on the ground the vikings offense aligns playing better the quarterback playing better and they can start to gain some confidence I'm back down to Earth so no in Detroit on a Sunday no because we have seen too many times were kirk cousins in Primetime even over the last three weeks of the season and you cannot say there's a quarterback this played better than he has I mean he is played phenomenal three weeks in a row can he keep that up for the season no down you're sadly mistaken teddy bridgewater having to do it without Alvin Kamara in this one but he did it and did not disappoint two hundred eighty one yards and a pair of he's challenged as a quarterback he's got his limitations as a quarterback and also because he's been so inconsistent throughout his career he will always be one of those kind replay well he threw for four touchdowns one eleven rating over three hundred yards and kirk cousins has outdueling to go along with Alvin Cooksey who shouldn't be bounds Saints Win Thirty six to twenty five they improve to six and one teddy bridgewater is now five since taken over for it onto the saints they played Chicago and if you thought the season was over for New Orleans win drew brees Went Lisa helps you get to where you would like to be by making payments fast and easy wherever whenever the only thing left to figure out is where would you like to be the last couple of years is the lack of an elite offense of line that offense blind really did improve and you can start to see it through Alvin Cook too which is also helped out five and everyone and the defense had been really good if you would've told me the vikings are GonNa go to Detroit and win Ida believed you but I would especially with Washington on this short week it's easier for cousins F- Galvin Coup Dowden Cook should be the focal point of their offense you make a great point what's held them back Zeke's night class through high school and college what certain subjects that you just always knew you're going to get an an no matter always good at math math for and guys regardless of what type of season he has regardless of what type of game you're always looking for either the next season or the next game that he's going to come they would've won at twenty one seventeen that they would have been defensive maybe twenty two sixteen something like that for them to go there have matt in for forty two yards and two touchdowns on the ground vikings win a big one forty two to thirty the only bad news adams field and had to leave the game with the we're worst grade I ever gotten math was well he's never even had that against disease exceptional I think because he missed training camp this is the best game is he he's like Nick foles Nick foles until he won the Super Bowl say oh man Kenny start for you yeah mckinney carry a quarterback no kirk cousins is but to allocate our own art I listen laying out on the turf financing can be it can be painful but this is a good pass with your man be near maybe we don't want to rock the boat until we have to rock the boat but see how impressed have you been with Teddy Bridgewater it's been it's been great for him it's been great for his career we wondered how effective he's listen everybody knows what do breeze brings to the table but there's got to be a little bit of okay everything's going great nothing's we haven't even lost a game Teddy Bridgewater we talked about Patrick mahomes earlier see the chiefs do not have a roster one through fifty three that can sustain this injury their quarterback and so what they're doing drew brees is amazing and Sean Payton even though he's starting to open up the playbook the last couple of games they've won these five games yes players one through fifty three seeing how deep this team is how many different ways they can beat you and if you didn't watch this we need to understand something this game was thirty six to ten with three minutes left and seven of the ten came on a bears kick return touchdown not only is your backup important but yes nick and I we work correct about that one right there both of them playing outstanding but let's not get this twisted Minneapolis miracle they lose to the to the Vikings next year the call against the rams rams go on to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl but this team is well tested really tough San Francisco team that's in New Orleans by the way a game that by the way maybe that's for the one seed who knows yeah I do know this that if you told anyone in football the saints right now and see you've got it in front of you but if you look at the schedule you're like okay we've gotten through this right where we thought you needed to go three and three on peyton credit because the first couple of games very very conservative last three he's opened up that playbook a little bit more for Teddy they've won two of these games scoring less than fourteen read them on the road you gotTa Credit Special Teams Credit Their defense and ends thirteen because this is a team that's tested the last couple years they've had heartbreaks and in this stretch of five games where they went on the road and one three times is the most impressive stretch we've seen any team this year and you gotTa give you know Alvin Kamara and you do this to the Chicago Defense Tobacco Russia's for nine everyone's GonNa talk about trubisky and how bad is that's fine but what but trubisky played in points which is two wins this year's going less than fourteen points they had one win scoring less than fourteen points in the entire drew brees era prior this season evens for the bears are and what the saints did their defense that defense was remarkable I thought if they want it was going to be nine two seven instead the saints had a safety the saints who are forcing turnovers there's the saints were spectacular in every phase of the game yesterday and then the bears add to Lee we're going to be out six weeks what is what if you could take it right now guarantee it would they take three and three they would've taken it sight unseen say we're going to stay alive and his career but Sean Payton Trade for him for a reason we thought that him and Jacoby Bursa were the best backups we had in the NFL and they are showing all pro Travis Kelsey who leads all tight ends with five hundred forty one receiving yards this season kind enough to get up and join us this morning travis thanks so much for hanging talks towns that don't really matter to make the score very deceiving I mean they won this game by twenty five points and felt like and that's what it was trending towards and if you are Sean Payton coach of the year in the NFL and I don't really care what happens to the rest of the season if you can lose drew brees and said I do believe is the best backup and I think he's going to be a starter next year bad as it could have been take us back to the moment you just how scary was it what was your entire body we're on the field you saw him we saw his reaction a really look scary with us today is always good I want to start by asking you about Mahomes we just talked about now that we know the injury isn't as Patrick Mahomes is hopefully he'll be back in less than three weeks from his dislocated kneecap but with Kansas City will rely on their other offense of stars like two time game now moving forward as a veteran tied in who I believe is the best tight end in nfl what adjustments are you going to make to make sure that Matt is comfortable in this offense still run smoothie until you get Patrick Mahomes back the biggest thing is just trying to turn out to do win thirty six twenty five really going really like Teddy Bridgewater story so starting quarterback in the league next year two moments after Patrick Mahomes went out when it looked like he was not carded out and then he walked off the field to immediately turn the page at something Chris Talks played its best game of the year wants Patrick Mahomes went out how important now that you specially no mahomes this timeline was that win and was for the defense the competence there's been a number of teams that have a great deal of success with a backup quarterback we know you guys changer mentality when Matt Moore comes into the into the lineup in last week's as we were trying to get everyone off the pile and we saw in mood so everyone's trying to figure out what's wrong with him because he really isn't in a panic he's just laying there and time that no matter who the player is you have to have the ability to do what I think you responded better than chiefs fans responded who were terrified sitting at home watching you guys really rally defense they've got him and Arizona's one three zero and they have a by then Atlanta then Tampa a home game for Carolina then Atlanta again before they face we were all looking forward to we didn't get that much time to see that but does does hill being back in the lineup bringing a different element to this offense regardless of who the quarterback is it does I mean it matters for sure don't don't get me wrong but tyreek hill being on the field changes everything from a defensive perspective I think L. We do have this type of game in us even if we haven't shown it the first six weeks of the year doozy Hughes confidence boost for our defense the US just kind of take us back through it I mean everyone knows l- QB sneak on on either third or fourth hour and hell you might be a starter for the team they were playing last night Agni next year but the what they've done and by the way also Mickey Loomis and the building of that roster obviously you never know how long it's going to be out so it's just is good to hear that it's not as as bad as everyone on originally thought is that he's getting healthier every day the sidelines I know you squashed it but you talked about how important this coaching staff is in getting the best out of Travis Kelsey can you elaborate on that for us in a different place and it was just it wasn't it wasn't a good site C didn't know whether you know he was going to be back in the game or Honestly made it that much easier for for the office be able to rally together knowing that obviously Patrick Mahomes to tyreek hill was something John Andy Reid telling you what a special place it was with their fans and also how andy was going to help you out also on the staff you guys have as OC Eric Enemy probably GonNa pass it anyway and that is who you guys were through the first six weeks of the season even at times it felt maybe to the teams detriment being you got you we're both very competitive so would you saw on the sideline just too competitive is going after him holding me accountable throughout the game I loved stuff Denver like that it was on the lights out all game long idea was the first dry that is the only time they scored I believe and Geico Chico's area Vietnamese he's one of the best sees in the game right now he's he's one of my favorite coaches since I've been here he knows I love and are you in the running back corps and do you think the chiefs will get to maybe a little bit more of a balanced offense that could pay dividends Patrick comes back because the guy I'm very very familiar with how important has your overall development been with Andy Reid an offense of mine but also you and eric enemy you got into a little something I would you get with with playing with one of the national football league and Being Terry Hill tribes I mean I remember talking to you after you got drafted by Kansas City giving you some really interesting if not just a little tongue in cheek quote before the season I think at a fan event where you said listen if you think we're GONNA pass we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA run Marie all these weapons Patrick Mahomes why would you not pass but it kept the defense on the field a ton and it you guys had the two game losing streak with Patrick now out how confident I mean being the unbelievable Coachie is I mean he year in year out for years else NBA Invest League you the the automatically puts a cap on the defense do you have to play twenty to twenty five yards we saw what happened in New Orleans where drew brees went down and they've managed to sort of keep the ship afloat you guys have a great offense you're playing very well and then this happens as you know who who we are is an offense is always going to be good now we gotta players in the Locker Room that you know it matters to them so we're going to go out and we're going to compete every single day every single play but the ball is as a safety as the as the third defender and it's just a with him being on the field of makes everyone else kind of opened up and I'm trying to do too much and just being ourselves I think that'll be just fine because many more coming to designate Travis I was really impressed by your guys ability as a team even then they ended the drive by stopping a two point conversion so everything was building up for them all game to see them get that many sachs played that well together the different personalities you guys both seem to love to have fun but in different ways Jason Kelsey growing up story growing up in the same houses him not him in the Mummers uh-huh missile thankful just to be under his offense let alone be able to to pick his brain about the tight end position which he's coached in the past but even on top of that it's not that he can't move and when you look at his knees start point and his knee and once you look at his news I don't know what that is right there with that the kneecap was anymore can come in and fill the needs that we need back their quarterback get dubs just by you know the offense that we already have set and he gets up running in his tail down my goodness it was the funniest thing ever with the parade but something your brother is going to text you after and say I can't believe you told that story on television gives us a good Jason Kelsey Philadelphia Eagles Center Story Joey or brothers plays same position similar style I I'm not sure how many people recognize wait travis and Jason Kelsey your brothers he has a very different people here and then that's the biggest thing is when you get a lot of guys that were being something to and you're playing for something for somebody else you know a band of brothers Travis put some Kansas City chiefs fans at ease a little bit obviously some people thought the end of the season is upon us with Patrick mahomes going out we're big hockey players growing up so we lay roller hockey in the driveway and I remember he went out to the To the streets turn around to come back as I was playing it's a little bit more income together in even finish the season strong bearing injury or not you know you're going to have to find a way to win and that's where CONSTITU survived a film study with Green Bay they do have a defense now we know Aaron Rodgers you know you got to score points keep him on the sideline but looking at Green Bay what are some of the problems they present for you're alone for two got me going and sure enough we ended up definitely squashing that would have but moving forward to better things to find a way to get a win last week this Kansas City offense man honestly I haven't really peaked out that much other than the the you know what do you say to your fans what do you do over the course of the next couple of weeks to make sure you're in a good position when mom's does return to the team is no we have a lot of people in this locker room the sweat and odor protection in the antiperspirant the sweat defense dry spray everyone go check it up I hope they're paying you L. Because that was I mean in terms of league-wide I really do believe we have the best skill players in the league in that counts in the runningback rule to a meaningless sean would win chavis before go tell us about your partnership with Old Spice Olds I'm here on behalf of old spice the official anti person game they had the other week I got interested scream disagree bay packers man you know you're you're in for a lot of tradition going Dania both those guys are they're back there when we get when we get the ball in their hands and I I don't think really switches up that much I honestly believed in the National Football League as the move free hundred pound man as as as his job and you know the the the the one story in my mind that I can think of is were of the NFL and you know they're always irrationally finding a way to tackle odor and in in in every single how's teddy bridgewater is one of those kind of people to that if you've been covering the game you cheering for him because he's a great guy has a story horrific knee injury there in Minnesota that ultra high-cost and catch us on FM one Monday through Friday six thirty am Easter.

[105] Week 1 Preview: San Francisco 49ers

"Condemn water on the goddamn huddle. I'll tell you when you get a water break. Welcome to the buccaneers. Observer podcasts passes ralph phillips. Today is september third two thousand nineteen five days to kick off three four five count count on sesame street yeah one day before football. That's a horrible impression spot on. I knew that i was trying to think i five five days before football. Yeah totally okay. Geno fact checks are follow ups. We were perfect last episode mainly because i didn't do any fact checks for follow anyone else's free. It's come up with something we were going to do. The game review on friday podcast but then i realized that the first injury report doesn't come out until wednesday. We recorded the podcast on tuesdays so i had really nothing else to talk about where we're like. Let's just get this preview out of the way. We never ever do anything anything. We say we're going to do and then when we say we're going to do something. We'd do it differently and then i think if we stop pointing that out people notice i think part of the problem is we don't remember what we say. Just blowing a lot of hot air. You are mostly drew. We did have some news this week. We we signed a running back t day. Logan stand the why would we sign a running back. We have three on the roster one on the practice squad who could be roster. I don't get it well. This is one of the as guys from arizona and hit the waivers so i think they just pounced on them being really likes him and in fact he's listed on the unofficial depth chart as the kick returner and b._a. Said expect to c._n._n. This first game wow so what's bogo wilson going to do that was pint return okay so t._j. Logan he played at arizona with areas yeah. I don't remember where's he been. I think just said areas ana gonna wear number twenty two doug martin zola a number. I cannot believe they're giving away doug martin's cia. Oh yeah we'll. I hope you'll stay off drugs the number ninety two. I mean twenty. It's cursed. They had to waive patrick o'connor from the defensive line which we talked about last time we were surprised he did play well on the fourth preseason game but he made the cuts and then he didn't but they did bring him back onto the practice squad and actually kind of addressed it in his press conference today he said it's this time of the years having guys go but then you have guys who think that they made the team and then they released them the next day. Let's go suck man. Could you imagine you call your parents and your girlfriend your wife your wife and then your girlfriend the which one you're talking about the team n._f._l. Player won the buccaneers. Here's the next day. It's got to be devastating to check out that t._j. Logan does see some of his game ville. I looked at the hawkins was that his name gerald hawkins from the steelers. Yes i looked at a hill. We talked about that rough. I looked at the two thousand seven film hill and then seventeen to seventeen team. I'm really tired so okay so <hes>. I think that's kinda the point to he's just depth. I'd like liked to get somebody that can compete for the job but i think it's lend pickens around the league. That's what i hear. Available matt gay his his wife gave birth to a baby boy also was very exciting. He is with her now. He wasn't practicing today obviously for that reason but he'll be back soon with the team the i was. I was waiting for them to get that over with so he could come back can be here not to be a jerk thing but that's really bad timing. Okay hi sometimes you can't. I mean i'm talking about just getting pregnant and having a child right before the season. You're a rookie of people at a lot out of stuff. That's true. It's just how life happens. Sometimes i think it would have socked if he would have got cut yeah peltonen stuff in their wife's. Having a baby probably happens a lot vail's produce an levante have said allante and we'll be ready weak sequin. They haven't said definitively whether veto will blues down one would at least week do against the panthers. Please yeah so yeah well see the debt are the injury report comes out tomorrow so we'll see if he's on there probably be on there probably j._p. Was a practice again it. It was he which does are heard but these on the n._f._l. Or the like participating sooners publish it and said that because i'm not sure of my source is one hundred percent correct who is still airs about us if it's not i'm greg. Allman is probably wrong. Did you see where they moved day. Stewart ahead of sean murphy binding on the depth chart. I did see that and we kind of touched on that the the last podcast how surprise we were yeah that n._b._a. Sierras behind him in a hunting actually made the team. I know the adult no we're not there. We don't see what's going on but i mean the guy really play bath asked me. He looked like brett crimes out there. I think there's just a terse bad breadcrumbs yeah br grimes his prime. I think there's a dearth of defensive backs in the league. How many really good safeties can can you name right now like elite yeah we had touched on that about how they just. There's no dion sanders or ed reader rebus <music> shutdown corners or the probably is we're just not thinking about. Maybe i can't really think of any. I can't either especially at the safety position which that brings me into the forty niners game. Their secondary is not great. Their strength is definitely their defensive line sheldon richardson vector or a richard sherman richard sherman slipping sheldon richardson back there playing quarterback he was at. I don't even know that us. This developed tackle for the cleveland browns. It was on the right side of the ball so we'll give you a van yeah. Richard sherman is with the forty niners but since is he left the legion of boom. I don't think he's quite the corner in that. It used to be also got a weakness on their offensive line. There guards apparently are not great on their offensive line offensive line okay. I don't know i mean we watched the third preseason game against kansas city off into land loot. Jimmy garoppolo had some pretty good pocket presence. I thought the source did i was reading where they were talking 'bout their deficiencies. It was a fan website so it's almost like you're in your own little bubble and you don't know what about offensive line looks like necessarily necessarily or you look at the glaring teams like it's all relative offensive line is one of those things where everybody bitches about just like general manager and offense of line doesn't get any credit except when they screw up as the only time you notice offensive lineman. They never show plays where offense salama do good boring what not to me. I love that to me. That's like the most exciting thing about footballs watching offense and defense go at it. You're you're you get some really good stuff on there. That's where it counts. If you ask me man in the trenches well what do you think about our offensive line line going up against their defensive line. Will they got d ford sheldon day deforest buckner eric armstead diaz. The eric armstead's my biggest worry on their. He seems to be pretty good but our offensive line is gonna struggle with any defense. That's in the top ten mm-hmm stronger real bad. I don't think this defense is going to be top ten. I think it's gonna be a battle. They're going to get some sex. It seemed to me with the game against kansas city. This is tough to gauge because it's preseason and we've only got the one game on them. By kansas city end the forty niners. It was like one one score then directly. After the next squirrel is kind of a back and forth so they were always neck and neck. I think finished the half ten ten or something like that and scored by their running backs on long passes israel we are maybe it's a new trend in the league. I hope we joined that journey. My now right dora disrupted your train of thought. I forgot what i was saying. We were talking about. Both teams. Were even so to me. I wonder if maybe their defenses aren't great like they can stop each other from scoring and our our offense may may struggle with their defense but i think our defense is better than there will. Obviously they've got a good tidy and kiddle. They've got breda running back very underrated. I think i think it's very good running back and garoppolo. If i watched the first two preseason games garoppolo in their office lime look like crap within the third preseason game they it really looked good like you said it might be the quality of the ponant donna. We'll find out sunday but if we don't get pressure grapple. Oh he's gonna probably eat us alive because i mean he can make any throw. He's a pocket passer and he each allow that most but it's going to be interesting with our secondary love our coverage. I think we've got we've got going on so now. We're playing a lotta man. Coverage and these guys are turning around and look into the ball past rash will help to the blitzing the blitzing what's going to be you know we don't have to have outstanding defensive ends or the outside linebackers whatever outside rushers because we have so many blitz packages that are crazy easy. They're crazy. They're gonna be coming from everywhere and they hide. If you watch the third or fourth preseason game you see jackie did it again. He came in hid hid behind the line and then shut right up to a whole got a good sack on whoever their quarterback was at the time to say number nine but you have an and it's happening every preseason game and brazilian said that that they teach these guys to disguise their blips going in and you see we've seen it at least once a game game where nobody has seen these blitzer common and they've gotten a direct hit on the quarterback for sec every single game so i think that we're going to see a lot of that but these guys are coming in from everywhere and you just don't know and they're hiding good so i think we were going to do that a lot and we're going to need to because we're going to give garoppolo off of his game getting nervous back there. Her and i think we have the advantage there. I'm surprised now earlier in training camp. They say garoppolo wasn't gonna play in preseason. Zan and kwan wasn't gonna play about playing them sneaky. I now quan as wearing number fifty six at at san francisco just so you guys can look foreign so one of our biggest strengths if not our biggest strength is our wide receivers and they've got a crappy second. This is gonna blowout. It's funny e._s._p._n. Did a simulation of the entire league to see how it was going to shake out and they have san francisco winning the division at eleven and five but is blowing them out this game thirty seven to fourteen wow yeah would they have us at into division. I didn't look you don't make me salty. Probably you know out of san francisco. I mean i guess they're on the upswing but you know the the rams in the seahawks. He offers still contenders. Rams got their super bowl hangover. Probably this year sure they could play second third division. I can't see them winning the division no way no way then again weird things have happened. Yeah that was also the division where matt hasselback astle back took the seahawks to the play offs at like seven and nine divisions to be horrible keynesian tehran bruce arians and de fisher. What a joke greater building teams. Though oh yeah we should make you build a team and then handed over to he could be g._m. <hes> yeah you know he was very involved in the league. He was head of the roles committee activity thirty years. I don't know whether he probably would make a good g._m. Has teams were always just average dip. I'm excited to see our tight ends yeah to do with the forty niners. They've got george kennel but behind him. They've got nobody. I so want to see need. These three tight end sets man. We're gonna have a lot of times says a lot better now. Now you're gonna see them bunch barshop three three tight ends over there and you'll we'll be like he's going to be. It's gonna be a pass and those guys going out for past the convention. Three tight ends go to mike evans on the outside. Oh my goodness. It's never happened before. No team has ever had this many. A good tight ends on their team so it'll be interesting to see i mean areas are supposedly you know they. They played with the tools are given you know they bashing the team around their strengths so we'll see if they do that with these titans crazy. I wanna see eight out there. That's an yes. I want to see hill in a game against the first starting. He's a baller out there. Hobo jay can make it through the day and her. I can't break to injury crazy. Yeah yeah we go to jordan leg it on the practice squad. Some of our guys have connections to use the inference go of course john lynch is the biggest one on mobile add san francisco. I think a lot of bucks can't have spot for san francisco just because of him that's true but he's still an enemy so going down and this week. Wasn't he a safety. Yes how's their secondary not better because you can't tackle anymore like us. Here's to tackle good lord be calling him dirty almost definitely fine every week. Yeah he'd be suspended from every game. I mean they would just he'd walk down the field. They just go flag. You looked at somebody mean. He reminds me of a pediatrician what when he was on the broadcast booth and he would be lincoln at blazer a nice shirt. He looks like a pediatrician. He comes from a pretty well family. Yeah then he got stanford. He had had the opportunity to do a the elite college saying and go in the business world high finance whatever he wanted hit people. That's crazy to me. I love it but you know he come from a wealthy family and he wants to hit people. What do you want to do with your life. Little johnny money is no object right. Money is no object they want to do. If you wanna make people bleed make them hurt competitive sports so yeah. They should have a much better secondary with thank. It's different if different spoil rely on college whenever they're turning out probably slim pickens. It seems to evolve college. It's like one year. You've got a bunch of quarterbacks back the draft well next year. You got a bunch of defensive lineman. I think it was it was defensive. Lineman this year yeah you know one year to blitzer receivers so colleges weird todd balls old played for the forty niners rule one year nine hundred ninety one after the redskins swansong forty niners last year your question blaine gabbert was also there remember. He is the one that got colin kaepernick pinch or rather colin kaepernick gotten himself off benched in favor of ever. Would you give pitch for blaine gabbert. I i am band. Yeah you're playing. He was there with three years from twenty fourteen in two thousand sixteen but then blaine gabbert played bad. They put colin kaepernick back in the season. Yes bradley pinon also was with the forty niners owners from two thousand fifteen to two thousand eighteen year. Yeah i had no idea and this is gonna be a great game because james winston only needs one hundred ninety any three more passing yards to surpass vinny testaverde's franchise record for passing yards also. He's going to do it too yeah. This'll be the game. The box ahead ahead was san francisco have gone seventeen and six one seven now. The forty niners have won seventeen gene. We've won six sucks but we've lott won the last two in twenty sixteen and then twenty eight. That's all l. asked you know it's a it was a different world back. The forty niners used to be the elite team best team in the league. They haven't been missile since the nineties though and we used to be the worst team in the league and we played on since the needs not a whole lot only won. Six games are playing in the playoffs. I also think it was in ninety. Two thousand one game remember beat the snot out of we played them in two thousand twelve to the colin kaepernick. Be the crap out of us here. We lost like forty eight to three against them and it was recently. I think in two thousand eleven that's when they had a really monster offense when they win the super bowl patton might have been they had a monster offensive line during that period it just they were just crushing our defense. I remember that just row in gaza around. I've got that one clip of he who shall not be named coming through route the line in there the guy scraping the back and it was a guard or something and he just put him on his knees just crushing actually ninety three kind n._f._l. Through the lines a little bit but then he just gets clobbered it was it was a mutt really bad performance on our part really good performance on their part so anyhow dogs like their dolphins might be something to worry about this year we were but i think we've got they don't do a lot of movement on their offense of line or they haven't in preseason preseason which i wish we'd they were distill too much movement on our offense for for my taste you know i like that straight up man to man bill the pocket or push forward zone blogging and that's it. I don't want athletic offensive lineman. I want bruisers yeah like a big solid offensive line wall. Yeah i agree with you but but you know if they're guards relatively speaking are the weak link our interior defensive line. That's our strength. Ensues gone up against these guys quite a bit. You looked at least twice last year right and both of those guards are new this year last year. They were to go back and look the film and see how he gives them. Yeah it's gonna but if it is out there they're going to be in trouble right and i don't call do you a. How garoppolo was on the run. Did he run at all. I don't know that he ran and isn't he coming off of an a._c._l. Injury. I don't know what kind of scrambler he is. He didn't play much last year. I think forgot her dylan. Oh i don't think he's much of a scrambler no he's. He's definitely a pocket passer yeah but we're gonna win any no. I think this is how bad we're going to beat them. I want humiliation. I really do i want. I want everybody seeing on everybody to leave to go. Damn forty niner honor suck and then go damn good and readjust all these damn power rankings and all that crap. I hate to say that joe bucks. Fan has been the incessant with the listen to a lot of n._f._l. Coverage and i can't even remember who the article was about today but somebody he predicted is going to in fourteen which why they choose to write about that anyway. I don't understand but just for that person. The have that kind of prediction just y'all can sleep but that's right. Hey file with me. I like proving people wrong yeah. But why are they even reporting on it. Joe bucks fan 'cause doom and gloom. I haven't been keeping up with the news and stuff all preseason. I normally do this. It's really strange. You would think it'd be the exact opposite preseason comes you think you'd be all finding out as much information as you can but i purposely don't purposely kind of stay away from it because i don't want my own an analysis slash opinions tainted because you hear so much stuff and everybody's got an opinion about this player and that player in this game and that scheme this coach and that coach and you when you read this stuff it gets any head and so you start viewing things differently so to keep it fresh. I like going into the season fresh not having any preconceived ideas about anything except for in what i have personally witnessed on field so i've left it up to you this whole preseason to keep us up to date on the media appreciate that molly thank okay. I didn't know what was happening. We're just wondering why i showed up with. No notes notes that you're on strike <music> telling me to strike but you're like that too with movies or show yeah yeah to use thing i've styled noticed when you go oh into a movie your expectations matter greatly because if you really expect a movie to be good and it's man you come out hating it and if you go went to move expected to be bad and it's average you'll like it so i like to go into movies knowing absolutely as little as possible same thing with everything all art music so that way. I get to make my own and plus. Your mood is very matters a whole lot with art when it comes to movies if you're in a bad mood and you go see a drama movie pretty good. You're gonna think it sucks. Put a good chance of your socks <hes> and then you know you might five months later. Catch it on netflix or something and you're in a good mood and you watch and you lose a lot better than it was very strange. How it works man so mood the expectations will alter your reality and that's how you approach football in pretty much approach. Yeah i try to approach everything like that action. What's share prediction for the game. I'll still a score do all right. I'll say thirty to fourteen. I'm going to go with twenty eight seventeen bucks. I'm writing this down twenty eight seventeen. I think that we're going to want to show off a lot of stuff. We're gonna want to show off our defense. We're gonna wanna show off our offense offense so we're gonna score a lot. We're gonna make make it very difficult for their offense. It's gonna be really interesting to see how our coverage on the tight end is. That's going to be interesting interesting. Who's going to do the coverage how good it's going to be tight. It's going to be now that you said that. I wanna say i could be wrong about this but i think the a said. He didn't didn't want to put devon white on kennel. He said that was an ago. Surprise me yeah. I mean why it's gonna. It's gonna take a while for him to get up to speed with stuff right kills one of the best sides the league. It's going to be interesting to see we match up with them because we make on nasa but other than that. I don't think there's anybody else team. That can catch a ball now. I mean there. Receivers levers are really unremarkable. Breda breda breda. He's he's good catching the ball running back seven coleman to from they brought him in paid him eight and a half million for two years and then he didn't win the starting job radio got the starting job bridge's good rennebach who are their receivers dante dante pettis marquees goodwin richey james kendrick born the bourne identity. Oh we got deebo removed from friday's now depot you know because depot now of i dunno marquees goodwin but everybody else dies right so that kind of works for our our advantage. They don't really have these elite receivers now and i think we built our team for levers hearers right we play drew drew brees and michael thomas matt ryan julio jones ridley. I mean we've got some great receivers and automation and then we get the panthers uh-huh who do they have receiver torrey smith go which i didn't even really remember. He was on our team. Tell he got really. They should just named teams or the cam. Newton yeah cams christian mccaffrey and i don't really we need any receivers tweet came to christian mccaffrey. They don't need anybody else on the team. They don't even really need to throw the ball can just take all the snaps running right. I mean the receivers are more d coins down. Didn't they've got that powerhouse defensive line to do you only need one player on defensive line to number ninety three. He's all you need is he. He's good enough for eleven guys so quanta alexander he started at weakside exci- linebacker number fifty six for the forty niners that richard sherman back. There will probably be covering. Mike evans the whole bam dame and you now b._a. Knows him from playing against him in that division. I don't think mike evans have a problem with sherman. Oh where'd they talking trash on. The field was miked up now. I think they were talking about her harry. Potter potter was talking trash. Yes so what's up with their safeties. They've i've got jakubowski tart. He was there a second round. Pick in two thousand fifteen injury prone. He's starting on the other side. They've got jimmy ward word. Draft is the inference cisco in the first round in twenty fourteen. He's also injury prone a healthy right now. The two healthy right now and then tar various more. He was the twenty third round pick. He hasn't even taken a regular season snap at safety. He was rich determines backup last year at corner corner so he was drafted in two thousand fourteen and he's never taken a twenty eighteen. Oh twenty eighteen so he has drafted in twenty eighteen played a backup corner corner last year then they moved into safety this year and then antone x._m. Junior he is behind a quickie tart and they just re signed him to a one year deal but he is one of those guys that they signed cut signed. Bring back martina yeah exactly claim so that's their secondary. That's their safety position not strong. They're going to get destroyed. They've got d ford from kansas city on their defensive line deforest buckner now like eric armstead. I really think he's just just from a little bit obscene. He seems to be the best defensive line him and he'll be going up against johnson no the other one now how donald smith i can't see you can not with your head and you're shaking your head. I don't like being this negative about a player i just wanted to i mean he's got the huey straining. He's isn't very frustrating. You're like as much as we've paid him to be here because we have no other options and he plays like he doesn't give a shit half at the time and it was the same thing last year. It's not he. Did it get better. No actually he looks worse. He weaker things that like. I say i mean he. He was on the field for thirty snaps. Maybe more and more you know in all three preseason games combined and in that time and what we can at seven times he was on his ass the third. It's okay but to be fair to him. Dotson hasn't lew grade either on the other side yeah but maybe it's them resting dawson too much. They tried to get the old guy a lot of rest but maybe detriment tooth game probably will be oreta. Nick bosa probably won't play. I don't know they haven't said yet. Nobody knows what he's gonna. Look lincoln right. He was out on the field without his walking boot and then he was doing some conditioning yes so i think it's pretty much going to be a good matchup for us. We're gonna win. We're gonna win convincingly. We'll oh make everybody second guessing. Forty niners win damned evasion. Where'd that come who said that e._s._p._n. They did a simulation or retarded what they did a whole bunch of simulations. Have we ever noticed that they never hold any of these people accountable for being wrong a lot. You see it all the time. I mean these guys are always making predictions and prognosticating like everybody football dozen minutes. That's the fun part of being a fan too as the prognostications but these guys get paid a lot of money in their wrong probably over physically time. They never get held accountable for it. You would think that it would be a competitive thing where if you they kept track of dad and if you sucked you get replaced by good and they'd scalp for people that were really good predicting the stuff i think when they're right they like re tweet their their previous weight and say see i told you get a win when you greg because he predicted a fifty out of fifty three of the roster sir you got mazzy wrong and i'm sure that's like you said nancy was going to be able to well. He made practice squad doco. They shook up our practice squad on a little bit in order to bring pat o'connor back. They waved bruce anderson. He's one of the practice and then they brought tony brooks james and signed him into the practice squad who was e- he's running back. See this is making sense to me. That's not the runback we had just put on to. We're going the two roads we brought in t._j. Logan on the roster well. He's on the roster yeah not practice right saying he's gonna return yeah and tiny brooks james it on the practice squad breezy anderson his l. So we drafted bruce anderson. He plays well. We didn't do we draft him. Yeah like in the seventh round actually round your epic of act but he played well. Yeah i thought so too. I was happy he was on the practice squad because i thought maybe he could develop new we'd put him on the practice squad and then we'd take him off the practice squad glad to replace him with brooks james and undrafted free agent out of oregon who was with atlanta he did rusher hundred thirty seven yards and two touchdowns taylor that was in their final preseason game though so yeah bruce did pretty good in our final preseason game too he got a touchdown not two touchdowns and during thirty seven yards pretty sure you had a real long touchdown bitney yeah. I thought he played la. Let me hit that one. That was from five yard line. I swear he caught a pass us in revenue in yeah i think then aren't so we're going to beat the snot out of the forty niners friday. We're gonna talk more about how we're going to beat the snot out of the forty niners owners government injury report official depth charts get some more insight. I'm going to watch some film with some of these guys brooks james t._j. Eh those named t. j. c. what we got and if you've got any money spare money delaying around or you wanna make some money go put some down on vegas odds ads for the buccaneers winning all this year because we're going to do it and like that optimism gotta have it gotta have it. You know another reason why we haven't have been bashing. The media much since preseason is because i haven't been reading the media right now. I'm just going to be absorbed everything now. It's seasoned time. It's like <music> gametime sucking all that median crap in it out again visual owner well. It's about what they're worth. They say that i should say that i like. I like the media in the sense that they're doing a job until next gala backs.

Perfect for your ride home subscribed today. Explain on apple podcasts or wherever you listen from Stitcher, and the vox media podcast network. Miami. The ball. Colin. Matures to Andy Simancas would dolphins talk on the fence cider radio network. And boy do we have a lot to talk about including last week as matchup against the Chicago Bears. The latest regarding the dolphins injury report and much more. We start off. I hug about the Chicago Bears and the mammy dolphins football game as mammy dolphins defeated the Chicago Bears. Third you one to twenty eight Brock Osweiler received a phone call from head coach Adam gays informing him that he will be starting against the Chicago Bears as Ryan tannehill. What's eight lays scratch due to a shoulder injury. And is very weird. How this played out the reason why say that is because last week Wednesday. Ryan tannehill was at practice, and he practiced fully also on Thursday. He practice. I fully as well. And then last Friday the injury report came out indicating that Ryan tannehill was limited and then late Saturday night evening. There was a report from five sports network and also three yards per carry indicated I Ryan tannehill was listed as doubtful. And then on Sunday before the match up against the Chicago Bears. We are notify that Ryan tannehill was listed as how and Brock Osweiler will get the star. And let me tell you something this came out of left field piglet. The reason why I say that is Ryan tannehill practice on Wednesday. He also practiced on Thursday. And then Friday he was listed as limited and then late Saturday night evening. We get the report. Four. And then Sunday we find we find out that Ryan tannehill wasn't starting for your Miami Dolphins. So heading into this match up. There was a lot of concerns. Why why there was a lot of concerns was because the backup quarterback Brock Osweiler was going to start against the second rated overall defense in the NFL. So there was reason to be concerned polemic tell you something though, Miami Dolphins were able to get get the job done. Besides things happening. It's a part of the game. You're never going to get a complete game in the NFL. There's always going to be mistakes or errors. So these shows you that this mammy dolphins team was ready to buy. Title against the Chicago Bears. Is specially how before Dora talkable about. Oh Khalil Mack is going to have a field day with the mammy dolphins offense. A you know, why Khalil Mack? Despite an ankle injury that he suffered during the game that dolphins needed to get the job done. I tell you this dolphin fans and Finsider listeners. There's no reason that up that we should feel bad because the opposing defensive star player is injured is not our problem is not the Miami. Dolphins problem what they need to do is get the W because when it's all said and done the only thing that matters is the w the opposing team is not gonna feel bad because you don't have your star player. No. No. No. No. No. No. No, no, no where they are not gonna feel bad for. For the Miami Dolphins. And that's how we need to realize things we need to take under consideration. Because we're always coming up with his skew how to downgrade a great Miami Dolphins victory against a tough Trico bears team and his team just didn't want to give up. There is probably dolphins fans. I saying oh my God. Let's see what happens. The Chicago Bears have a twenty one to thirteen lead late in the third quarter. You have this Chicago Bears at the Miami Dolphins thirteen yard line. I saying goal and what happens interception by TJ McDonnell. This shows you that this Miami Dolphins football team is not gonna give up despite what the experts say. Despite what the fans might think this. Fine. What the opposing team does. And this dolphin team has just not gonna give up. We saw at one day. Fumble went Kenyan Drake had that foam Bill at the one yard line. This Miami offered folk bump team wasn't ready to give up. They understand that they lost Dhammika. Sue, they know that divorce Landry is no longer there. They know that Mike pouncey is no longer with the team. But this team this Miami Dolphins football team is just not going to give up and we saw that. They get the ball back after Cody parkey, former Miami Dolphins kicker miss a fifty three yard field goal wide you right? Who gave them AMI dolphins another opportunity and the mammy dolphins got the job done as they had a six play drive for twenty eight yard took a minute and fifty five seconds. Hands off the clock. The drive started at the mammy dolphin forty three yard line. You had Kenyan Drake first and ten gopher four yards and second and seeks at the Miami dolphin forty seven yard lines. You had Brock Osweiler throw a pass to Kenyan Drake for fifteen yards that put the football at the Chicago thirty eight yard line. And then with forty seconds remaining Kenyan Drake rush at first three yards and the Miami. Dolphins called a timeout with thirty three seconds remaining in overtime on second and seven the football at the Chicago. 35-yard-line Brock Osweiler connects with Danny amendola for six yards rookie kicker Jason, Sandra. From the university of New Mexico state kick a forty seven yard field goal. And it is good as the mammy dolphins defeated the Chicago Bears thirty one to two. Twenty eight we have a lot more to talk about including the latest Miami. Dolphins injury report why the dish in a wide receiver. Albert Wilson is making dolphin fans. Forget about former Miami Dolphins wide receiver. Joe Varas Landry and much more. This is dolphins. Talk with yours. Truly Andy Simancas on the fence cider radio network. And we're back with office talk on the Finsider radio network with yours truly NBC moncus. And we have a lot more to talk about including right now. We're going to talk about the latest mammy dolphins injury report wide receiver. Danny Amon Dollah appeared on the injury report as it would non injury related. He was limited on one day. But he was involved fully on Thursday and Friday. So his game status is ready to go defense event. Audrey branch knee injury. He was limited on Wednesday limited on Thursday. But he was evolved fully on Friday soul. Elusive like Andre branch will play on Sunday against Detroit Lions guard Jesse Davis elbow, but he was involving practice fully on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday. So Alissa QB ready to go tied-in AJ derby, and this is one particular situation because AJ derby is nursing a foot injury. But he was involving practice fully on Wednesday and Thursday Friday. He was listed as limited. So his game status is listed as questionable. Also, Frank gore. Running back non injury related was not involved in practice on Wednesday. But he did practice on Friday.

Woodward Kokoshin did not practice ones. Eight Thursday or Friday. So he is listed as out and that is the latest regarding the dolphins injury report. And let me tell you dolphins fans what a performance by y receiver Alber Wilson against the Chicago Bears. Six reception for one hundred fifty five yards and two touchdowns in my books to fern office. So far of the mammy dolphins received in a with the signing of wide receiver. Alber Wilson who is helping the Miami doff. Any way possible that performance against the Chicago Bears was amazing. And Wilson is being the difference maker right now offense at first we were asking ourselves. What should we expect from wide receiver Albert Wilson, especially with jabbar's Landry being traded to the Cleveland Browns? So with that being said right now, the Miami Dolphins fern office of Chris Greer and Mike Tannenbaum they receive an A P 'cause Auber Wilson is helping the Miami Dolphins any way possible. And especially on that big touchdown run is amazing. How he just got the football and went all the way down feel after miss tackles and more mistake os. And the Miami Dolphins guy a touchdown what? Now only one touchdown. They actually got two touchdowns from wide receiver Albert Wilson. So far Albert Wilson for this season has twenty three reception three hundred fifty nine yards and four touchdown. And if you look at his games this season so far for example in the game against the Oakland Raiders he has to reception for seventy four yards and a touchdown against the New York Jets. He had three receptions for thirty seven yards and one touchdown. So our Wilson is being heavily involved right now offensively for your Miami Dolphins. And you know, what this has to make head coach, Adam gay. His is stream -ly happy. We have a lot more things to talk about before the end of the show we have trade rumors regarding why receive on tape Parker. And I got more information regarding the we will be right back with dolphins talk with yours. Truly Andy Simancas on the Finsider radio network. Miami. We're back with office talk with yours truly Andy Simancas on the fence cider radio network. And now we turn the page as trae rumors become a reality for wide receiver. Devante Parker as there's a report came from NFL network indicating that the Miami Dolphins are receiving phone calls regarding wide receiver. Devante parker. And guess what? You know, what's the asking price for wide receiver? Devante Parker a third round draft pick. But other teens have decided not to give the mammy dolphins a draft pick being so high, and you know, what I don't blame other NFO teams because what has why receiver. Devante Parker shown you on the field. How many games has he miss? If it wasn't pick a finger injury is because. Now of the Kwoh-ting the patience with wide receiver to vaunted Parker is not a bowling point. It comes to time that you drafted. Devante parker. So high and one has he shown the mammy dolphins. What has he proven to the mammy dolphins fan base to believe in his abilities to make sure that he can become that number one wide receiver that one the mammy dolphins drafted him? They would lead them. He has not shown me anything. And now other NFL teams are catching up. They're noticing that. Devante Parker is not worth if they're round draft pick and they're not willing to give up a third round draft pick four to voluntary Parker. Let me tell you guys something it is sad because to vaunted Parker's causing is a good furniture mine he goes to my family's business, and I always speak to him regarding. Devante parker. I'm a big fan of. Devante parker. I w-. Want vantera Parker to be healthy and be on the field. But if is now one thing, and is another is my blowing that devante Parker. Canopic be on the field. Mine new vantera Parker is very talented. It upsets me that. Devante Parker is not able to show that office organization the dolphins fan base. Well, he's capable of. Because I believe the Fontaine Parker is capable of a lot of things. And you know, what that is showing that he is a playmaker. And he could become a playmaker on the field. And you know, how? Devante Parker Capri to the fan base and to the dolphins organization that they should keep him. And not treat him is going out this Sunday against Detroit lines and having a big game. Six perception seven receptions for let's say one thirty two touchdowns. Oh my God. You know, how much the fan base will be like. Wow. To vantera Parker. We know what? Devante Parker could bring to us. Now. The thing is to Vaughn t if you listen to this part of this podcast on the Finsider radio network. You have to be on the field. And no matter what if you don't get the opportunity when they do give you the opportunity Provea to that that the dolphins should keep you. We have a lot more to talk about including a preview of this. Sunday's matchup against a deterrent lines and much more. We'll be right back with dolphins. Talk with yours. Truly Andy Simancas on defense cider radio. From the ground. When you. Dolphins talk your to the Andy Simancas on the Finsider radio network. And now we turn the page, and we focus on the Detroit lines which is tomorrow. I cannot wait because why because the Miami Dolphins have an opportunity to start the season five and two. When was the last time that you said they you're Miami Dolphins started five and two despite the doubters this Miami Dolphins team has overcome adversity. No matter what injuries happen to their star players. No matter how many season ending injuries have occurred, Allah, Daniel Kilgore, Allah, Josh Sitton. It goes on and on and on. But this team has an opportunity to prove that doubters wrong and come out with a victory against the Detroit. Life. What is the key to victory auto you right now the way that the Miami Dolphins will be able to come out with a victory. Deter lines is that they have to run the ball. Once again last week and consists Chicago Bears you saw Frank gore. Rush for over a hundred yards. You also have to Kenyan Drake involve we need to establish a running game last weekend. We got a glimpse of that. With Frank gore rushing for over a hundred yards. I understand that some of that yardage was done at the end of the ball game. But he doesn't matter because when he needed to make a big play for your Miami Dolphins he did. And I applaud him for that. And this Sunday Brock Osweiler has to have another good performance. Off tell you this dolphins fan. If Brock Osweiler improves from last weekend's game against the Chicago Bears, laissez if he drilled for three touchdowns three touchdowns and one interception. That is positive for us. So we need Brock Brock Osweiler to be smart with the football. If he is martyr this weekend against the detour lines. Then he was against the Chicago Bears. It will be a positive for your Miami Dolphins. We know what his spoke with the defense. I believe the defense is gonna bring Iggy they're getting key players back and that is a positive for your Miami Dolphins. We talked a lot about on dolphins talk with yours.

Shop now at Amazon top straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones, best networks, no contracts. Interesting NFL season interesting NFL week. Obviously, we saw a lot of games take place yesterday to stood out of my mind. It wasn't Chicago beating Detroit obviously thanksgiving. It wasn't. Baltimore beating Oakland with Lamar Jackson spearheading the way moving the Joe flacco era to an end. It wasn't. Josh Allen shutting up. Jalen ramsey. The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills beating the Jacksonville Jaguars twenty four twenty one with Jacksonville firing the offense coordinator after the game. I'll get in. I listen. There was some interesting game. Just they Carolina losing the Seattle Cleveland beating this. It's an Atty. Bengals the New England Patriots predictably up ending the New York Jets. And of course, the giants blowing a nineteen three lead. And losing to the Philadelphia Eagles landing defending Super Bowl champion. Philadelphia. Eagles I'll get to all of that and more as the show progresses today. Right here. The Stephen Smith show, ESPN radio and ESPN news. But let me let me to just a little bit allow me to express to you the alarming level of frustration that I on questionably feel at this particular moment in time. I cannot put into words how disgusted I am. That the Pittsburgh Steelers ended up losing this game. I can't even put it into words. Ben Rothlisberger four hundred sixty two yards passing wasted. James connor. He's no Le vian bell. Juju Smith Schuster, thirteen receptions, one hundred and eighty nine yards wasted. For two reasons above all else. Big Ben Rothlisberger leading the league in red zone interceptions. Do another one yesterday was Shelby Harrison defensive lineman getting blocked in the coverage. And ultimately Ben Rothlisberger throwing the ball right to. Now. We can make the argument that it's the freakish interception that Ben Rothlisberger may have ever thrown as he so eloquent it in the aftermath of their twenty four to seventeen loss to the Denver Broncos yesterday. Denver Broncos team. That's now beating the charges in the Steelers in back to back weeks, by the way, we could go that route. All we can state the obvious. If you watched it throw, ladies and gentlemen, it was an interception. No matter what. Whether it was Shelby, all whether it was Roe. I'm sorry. Shelby. Harris. Oh, whether it was Roby who had. Antonio Brown completely covered. I don't know what the hell big. Ben Rothlisberger was thinking throwing that pass made absolutely positively no sense. Whatever you can point to that specific interception. But it was going to get into septic. It was going to get into septic. There is no doubt about that. There's absolutely positively. No doubt about that. Yet despite case keenum only one hundred ninety seven yards. Despite the fact that Denver didn't have the most formidable run a game to speak of. They still ended up winning the game. I mean Lindsay did have one hundred ten yards on fourteen carries. That's almost eight yards per carry. I got it. But the real culprit and all of this was bent. It was turnovers from Connor. It was a drop touchdown pass from Washington. I mean, I'm just looking around right now at the Pittsburgh Steelers. And I can't even express. The level of my frustration. Because you see regardless of how. But thank Pittsburgh secondary looked earlier in the season. They had got things together. They were looking a little bit better. But now, I'm of the monster. They lost that game yesterday. And I said, dammit, they just lost a trip to the AFC championship game. Now. Now, I'm not saying that laser gentlemen, mama's saying that it's a very simple explanation. And you know, what that explanation is? It's the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers now dropped to what is it a fourth seed. Or at least a three seed in the AFC that means Kansas City and New England both ahead of you. That means to get to the AFC championship game. You're going to have to be one of the other one a row, and I don't think they're going to do that. Now had the Steelers and all likelihood possibly fighting for birth to the AFC championship game at Arrowhead stadium against the kids City Chiefs. You know, what if you had home games prior to that one could stand the believe who knows what kind of upset could transpire maybe I'll get lucky. Now, it's no way in hell. The Pittsburgh Steelers audit forthy chiefs to number one patriots number two, Texas number three still is known for do. I think the Texas last. No. I think the Indianapolis Colts might catch Texas, but I'll get into that a little bit later. I'll get into that a little bit later. In the end what this comes down to is that the Steelers blew a prime opportunity because they lost on a road to a team. They had no business losing to and a game. They had no business losing. Now for those of you out. There wanna hate on. Mike Tomlin kick rocks. I'm not trying to hear it. Coming into yesterday over his last seventeen games is road records forty fourteen to at one shell up. You wanna talk about somebody in their performances on a road and how their job should be in jeopardy, and it probably is how about Mike McCarthy with a Green Bay Packers. They lost all six of their road games this year. They've lost their last eight rogue games. Same plays a being called no innovativeness worth to speak of. And this is why you have. A man why did they considered to be arguably the greatest quarterback in the history of the National Football League? That's what we're looking at. Now, we see in Maradas played that way. No. We're not. He didn't throw for two hundred yards yesterday. His QBR's at twenty three. He's looked anything. He's like anything. But that bad man that I know him to be all of that's true. He's not saying, he's absolutely positively not the same this. Touchdown throw right here. Devante atoms. Missed it Aaron Rodgers that. I know I love would do that right on target. That's not what's happening here. It's clearly a situation whenever rajas. Whatever the reason. Did appear to be himself. Week sliced in any way, we want to did appear to be himself because he didn't appear to be himself as a result. You have a situation when you look at the Green Bay Packers. This season's done. They going to the play offs. I don't give a damn what Aaron Rogers says about running a table. I don't give a damn what he says about beating the teams in front of you. It's not gonna happen. You can book it. He's got Arizona Atlanta, Chicago to New York Jets and the Detroit Lions even if the Green Bay Packers won every single game. They only have nine victories. I believe you cargo will have more than nine I think ultimately, Minnesota will have at least not probably more than nine. I can see the Minnesota Vikings going ten five and one. I can see the Chicago Bears going eleven and five. I don't see the Packers can't win more than I games this year. And even if they did they need help. So why would anybody believe but one second? That somehow some way they're going to be able to write this ship and get things right? They're not. Green Bay isn't stout against run nor do they have a stout. Run. A game. And because of it both their offense and defense both middle of the road middle of the pack. So have you got all that going on? Where are you going from here, particularly with erogenous completing what is it? Just sixty one point seven percent of his passes, this era's we're talking about here. This is Erin freaking Rajputs. Luna football mortalities. And what have you needing to come to an end slice it? Anyway, you want to there's something wrong with this picture? This something that's just not quite right? Just got to look at it from the standpoint. That this change coming in Green Bay. Brian Kitts is your new GM? He just started gives some time work things out. See what level of personnel? He could surround Amer Raj with Mark Murphy presidency should be ashamed of themselves Ammon Rogers, maybe the greatest quarterback we've ever seen y'all ain't been a Super Bowl since two thousand and ten because you can't surround this man with the talent that he needs in order to be successful. And as a result he has to play perfect in order for you to be competitive, and ultimately, imperfection is inevitable. So that's not going to happen which hasn't happened that she and as a result, he's been compromised because of it. But that's what we're looking at. He would Mirages. That's what we're witnessing take place before. I very is. And as a result the way I look at it. I gotta tell you right now. I am just of the mindset. That for me. Green Bay season is over. I view the NFC north as Chicago's to lose. I think Mitchell Trubisky has apprised us. We shall see. What happens in New York? You gotta look at the giants. And the eagles and the question that that emanates from that game. Is are the eagles done? I'll tell you this. They want yesterday, but they look done. I'm not giving up on them because the NFC east is pathetic. But the bottom line is. I look at Philadelphia Eagles, the reigning defending Super Bowl champions. They look like a shallow themselves. I'm not excited about anything. I'm seeing for the Philadelphia Eagles, not a damn thing. They had three stars in their secondary out. I get that. And the secondary is vastly depleted. I get that they had a little run a game yesterday where atoms that was nice. Defensively they stepped up in the second half. But I attribute that that that game more to a loss on a part of the giants. Then a win on a part of the eagles. If you are Pat Shurmur, see this is why you weren't ahead. This why you won't never considered to be a good head coach. And this is why we were scratching our head as to why you got the giants job when you came in the New York, what was it an eleven and Twenty-three racket. I mean, you look at Pat Shurmur. Before the season when he was hired by the New York Giants. Everybody was asking the question. What the hell did this man do to be the head coach? He started this year. Literally started this year would attend and Twenty-three career record as a head coach in the national football for some reason, get them and hide them. See this is why you need new breeds because these old school guys hire people they're comfortable with that their friends with and this is the policy and by the way it exists. Let me not be completely phony about this. It exists in my industry. It exists all over corporate America, we preach and hold people accountable. For what we? Spy for and that's a meritocracy, but it's not applicable to ourselves. If you are Dave Gettleman, what the hell is your high Pat Shurmur for? Why? And by the way, I'm not questioning the man's football Acuras football now is, but there's nothing about his resume that told you he was the right man for the head coaching job in New York City, either you play any sports for New Jersey, you know, the New York market the media market is what covers you. It ain't just the Burj record. So you look at this guy who's three and eight now. And you got saquon Barkley flat out balling yesterday in the first half. He touches the ball five times to the second half. Why? You didn't feel the need to ensure that you would be able to continue to get that man of football. What kind of damn sense does that make? Odell beckham. Julia targeted non times caught only five passes and John noon. Okay. Do we have that sound? From Odell Beckham junior. After the New York Giants lost this game to the Philadelphia Eagles. Because people really need to hear what this man had to say. Listen to owed L Beckham junior speaking after the game listen to this. Honestly, Christopher coast was not really, you know, my question. I don't call the place. I just do what I'm told to do and go out there and execute whenever I get up between to do something. I'll try and make the most of it. If I don't have to lose all I can do is is what I came when I do have an opportunity so as more of a question for coach coming in knowing that they showed in the secondary. Personally. I would I would have loved to attack them. But it wasn't in our game plan. So let me say this. I do not agree with Odell Beckham junior's saying what he just said publicly to the media. But he wasn't lion. He wasn't lying. If you witness how depleted the Philadelphia Eagles secondary is what possible excuse under- God's green earth. Could you have? What possible excuse could you have? For not getting back of junior football. What possible excuse could you have having a game plan that didn't directly involve getting Odell Beckham junior the football. Listen, we all know, how awful ally. Manning has been he had a couple of Detroit. Yes, they plus an idiotic interception. Just to float it the whole team right before the first half throwing that inception made no sense whatsoever. Just a terrible throw on a part of ally. Manning. And just gave credence to those who take he should hang it out. What an idiotic play on his part. He's to experience for that. However. Still had a nineteen to three lead. You are professional. And there simply is no excuse. Not. None whatsoever. No way around it. If you're Pat Shurmur your two best players are saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham junior. And I totally understand you feel the need to get others. Involve use them as decoys if you have to get all of that. I really really do. Shepherd was targeted six times had four receptions for thirty seven yards. Ellison was targeted six times had four receptions for seventy seven yards. But you just gotta find a way. To get these guys the ball and make things happen. The New York Giants didn't do that. That's why they lost his game. Eagles didn't win it as much as the giants lost it. I was happy there. Malcolm Jenkins got an interception. I was happy about that. Because after calling the eagles out and saying that they gave a lackluster effort to basically accused them of quitting. I guess it all in Saint who. Bum rushed him forty eight to seven a week earlier. The who's obviously were hell bent redeem themselves, but to lose like that. And then come out against the giants with such a lacklustre first-half effort really concerns me about the eagles. I still think that the NFC east is up for grabs. I do not believe in the Dallas Cowboys, I believe they will lose to the saints this Thursday night. I plan on being in Dallas plan on doing. I hate from there looking forward to it and laughing in the face, a Dallas cowboy fans who did a short acting like y'all gonna do something here. We know better. We know y'all do anything we know it. I have no doubt about it. Okay. Even when a playoff game this year as usual, but go ahead, and tease yourselves. Go ahead and teach yourselves. I look at the Washington Redskins. Obviously huge question markets to what they're going to bring to the table. We don't know. We'll find out but who the hell believes in in a Redskins right now after their performance, particularly when Alex Smith is out for the year. Why believe in them? But the eagles definitely controlling own destiny. The only game out. We'll see what transpires we will see what happens. But there's still a lot of question marks. Because defensively they're just a shell of themselves and what they used to be. That's why look at them this way, very very little faith. I have in the Philadelphia Eagles. But even less fate than everybody else in the division. And that includes the Redskins right now at eight say ESPN, it's inundate seven to nine three seven seven six. We'll get in the mornings games that took place. Our definitely get into what happened in Michigan against the Ohio State University. I can't believe what I saw.

As young boy Gavin loved playing football. He lived in briefed wanted to go when he'd spent hours upon hours just seeing his touchdown at one day while we're getting fitted for bifocals, he realized he was never much good at throwing or running or country nor even kicking. Yeah. Gavin's chances of playing football. We're looking like fourth and long very long, but he did hear how DIKO could save money on car insurance. So he switched and save. Then he did kind of a touchdown dance. At least he was still good at that.

"X Rays Cat Scans. MRI ultrasound. Some of the biggest breakthroughs in medicine have been technologies that. Let Dr See things things. They couldn't before now. CVS health gives doctors the ability to see what medicine will cost their patients before they prescribe it helping them choose lower cost alternatives. Managing health costs another visionary idea from CVS health. We're health is everything. Savings vary not all patients eligible. Pardon the interruption but Mike Role Bond Tony San Francisco went to the bathroom in the middle of. You'll see store. I'm Tony Only Kornheiser and I'm more of a pharmacy guy. Myself much much love being over the past five considered when the warriors because they lost all their play. Let me just say I've seen that sort of multiple times in a grocery in San Francisco. Really Kidding brophy drugstore. Yeah really really won't Multiple Times. Is this a great. I don't know. Ti Boys and girls in today's episode. The Texans win the bears. Missile lateral ninety and the bills make the playoffs but we begin today with the looming drama in the God awful and see why Dallas pounded Los Angeles and just rams yesterday scoring forty four points. That is their most points in five years. Philadelphia barely escaped. The Washington redskins did not take the lead until until only twenty six seconds left in the game. These teams will meet next Sunday in Philadelphia. We'll bond do you make the cowboys. The clear favourite. No the cowboys are GONNA have to be a clear favourite over anybody eighty. I don't care. What scored they beat the rams by yesterday I mean this is a case where we'll spin off? Everybody will spend all week projecting ciccio putting themselves social situations to predict the game. It's just it's too big market teams. That have had some success. They have a lot of glamour surrounding them and talk about them and then any good good good of if we list the playoff teams. You know all the playoff teams that we get to the end of next week those two will earn. Learn less compensation than all the teams get more than most. I will tell you that that Vegas established the cowboys is a one point favorite. It was was immediately. Bet Up to two and a half. I don't want to be a victim of a term. I just learned today called recency bias. You just learn. I'd I'd I'd not heard that which is as you saw right. Now has an influence on you because the cowboys last week who the cowboys leaves just laws loans. Dreyer's there's and then they lost to buffalo threes way like them quite as much I but but I have no particular confidence in the Eagles Eagles even with their two wins. I'm pretty sure they had to go to overtime and home to be the giants and the reds and they'd been worst teams in the NFC S. So so what not. That's what I'm saying. You can't go around praising you the one of these teams is just like people. The moment that the cowboys won a game before they lost those three every rideau per se. Oh this is the end of this conversation. We won't have to hear from Jerry Jones anymore. Shut up you're in any it right. You're going to hear from Jerry. You're going to have the drama people are GonNa over arrate and overstate the Dallas cowboys. The cowboys aren't any good. I don't care if they beat Philadelphia by fifty. Just want to get to one thing for our friends. Scott van pelt belt is the most awful bad I've ever seen in professional football. Philadelphia was a four and a half point favorites whence throws that touchdown. They're going to win by four. So if you bet the redskins your going to win. You're happy on the last play of the game where it cannot happen twain. Haskins us all the time some took it happened and a four hundred pound. Lineman goes into the end zone on the last play his best San Francisco Atlanta. It happened the same offense play Aero Insane. It's the last place in Saban's all the time saying okay uncle Brent from the don't we we ever learn anything department. We leave the. We have the Houston Texans to discuss in the aftermath of their big division. Win Over the titans in Tennessee to Shawn Watson Watson got his team off to a fourteen nothing lead and even though he threw a couple of interceptions. The Texans held on. This isn't the first time Houston is bounced back from a dreadful game name like last week in Denver win impressively. Yeah Tony. Faith restored in Watson and the Texan. I don't have any particular faith in Watson in Texas. I'll be honest honest. I thought Tennessee was coming back. I thought Tennessee at home was going to win. I believe that Houston won. The game in Tennessee didn't lose it but I've thought about this. I thought aww this is the. AFC South is the least sexy of all the divisions for many many years they got three small market teams. They got Asheville Bill Jacksonville and Indianapolis. They don't really have a history of dominance they have relocated teams. You know the the Baltimore Colts could came into. Napoli's colds colds together. See the Houston oilers when it just. It's a state so you look at it. And they're SORTA easy for me to ignore an a can't get worked up over this if you can. I can't but it has nothing to do with sort of the glamour. The teams if one of them had popped up the Baltimore Ravens deep there relocated they can in each year four. We respect them individually for what the Annapolis Colts they want. But I I just I like to Shawn Watson I like to root for him line line by the way. Jj Watt adding back which ought to help four sacks before he left because they helped to Houston. Things have a game against Tennessee at the he ended yesterday do so so so maybe I don't know about faith no faith restored because I never had any faith. That's it that's sort of root for them again. Mostly because because it's Shawn Watson but this this they haven't played well enough consistently enough they follow a great game like beaten the Patriots with a clunker. My sense the incident and I know what you said about the NFC East representative being the worst playoffs. Thought but my sense is that the team that wins. This is GonNa play the first playoff off game. It's Saturday morning at ten o'clock and while I'd always GonNa Care Nobody's satiety. It sounds like you got a plan in the premier leader. You know slot. We'll this particular the story that we get the Green Bay packers. Beat your Chicago bears yesterday. Twenty one to thirteen which I am sure made Aaron Rodgers as scotch tastes good Johnny Johnny Walker blue. If you're sending Rogers no to me but in the first quarter the first quarter. The bears were penalized for interference on such and denied the recovery admitted again in the first quarter at midfield zero zero game. This was the critical the critical call. It was a bogus August. Call we got hosed you know see what you like when you say teams you like New Orleans and you boy sean. Payton this thing for these guys. We got holy tend to get holes in the fourth quarter. We it doesn't matter when you get hose I'm not demanding to replay the game okay. I'm not doing that. They don't know but this is garbage. This is exhibit A. As to why the League has to investigate the officiating. 'cause they're incompetent in the main. The officials are now incompetent and luckily dean Blandino Adina came on and said no no. That's the wrong call so look. The bears came close. We're probably gonNA come close anyway. Rogers Wins Games. He's nine and two or ten and two the bears Lambeau close game chance. Last play of the game was brilliantly conceived. Our coaching staff almost pulled it off. And I'm not upset but the officials officials let me let me be like fan now because that's what I am when you put that see up. There they stink. They ruined this season. They make it so you question the the integrity of the outcome of the Games they stink. Okay I told you to bet the under you would have one on the under the under was forty one was thirty four. Let me get to the last. Ask play the first one we now. I'm going to the last play play because trubisky doesn't go for the Hail Mary. Sorry he completes the ball's short the Green Bay packers. Don't even engage your team. You need air to Allen Robinson. If there's a pitch out it to him he walks in. That was stunning. It looked like the Miami. Looked like you weren't going to win win. The game we'd have to have a two point amber in overtime which means Rogers throws a ninety nine yard fast. We wanted when you be doing what we were protecting against the Hail Mary. But I'm saying come out took come out come out wherever you are ten. That means the bears at a good job of anticipation with the packers rejoined designing the plate account. We lost the game matinee. Put the Big Matt Nagy. You did a great job the last few weeks so Mazda right. He's not off for reading in this league and there ought to be an investigation a wait. There is various raise. The buffalo bills went into Pittsburgh and secured a playoff spot by beating the steelers last night. It's Buffalo's first ten win season in twenty twenty years to own the defense intercepted you boy. Duck Hodges Luoi Final Two possessions of the game plus. That wouldn't be a mouse if you put them here on. The bills visit the Patriots next without him with a chance to avenge a close home loss. Buffalo Yeah earlier this season. Yeah so so. How seriously do you now take the bill? Okay I think they can go to New England and win and I think that would give them eleven. Wins which is a lot there number. Let me get to Miami though. I'm not the Patriots. Watch a big deal. Yeah they're number two in points allowed in a whole league. The number three three in yards allowed in the whole league. They played the ravens tough a couple of weeks ago. I'm make a public declaration here. A couple years ago I looked at this guy. Sean McDermott. Who is the coach if buffalo when he declared his fealty to Nathan Peterman said? This guy is a Bozo. They're gonNA fire him. They need to fire him. I could not have been more wrong. They made the playoffs more room. They haven't made it in seventeen years later in two out of the last three now this guy. I thought he was a muscle bound Bozo. He knows what he's doing. Well you know seems strong. Got The quarterback right spectacular. I mean toughness. Look you. You know you've been in that stadium been in Buffalo. You know many times. The personality of this team to me seems to fit God knows. I spent the whole early nineties. Ladies and Buffalo going to play on the client fits the people if a franchisee nature and I I find myself rooting for them. A roof forum next week so so so everybody is talking about how great Lamar Jackson is being. The fifth quarterback drew after that draft. Unease that Graham but Josh Allen in the last nine games in the last last nine games. He's got thirteen passing touchdowns six rushing touchdowns and to pay off. so He's going to. He's an efficient and he's good for That squad yeah. He's good for that. Let's take a break coming up close to your adopted hometown of close to Binghamton like three hours to urban. Meyer hours. You boy end up coach for your other boy. Dan Snyder the Patriots. Videotape episode overshadowed the Bengals. I watched that it technology truth brought to you by GEICO truth go car stereo will always sink to the most embarrassing song on your phone. So the reservations evasions already now. What was that weird? must think within nearby cars something truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car. Insurance said GEICO DOT COM. Let's just wait. You like smooth jazz. Go SMOOCH GEICO. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more male time when you ask the question but we never give credit. LemMe see what's early. Clint stop ripping on. If you're urban Meyer. Would you prefer to work for Jerry Jones or Dan. Snyder's comes up because I was sitting in the danced either box yesterday. Corral John Maryland. The Jesse was Tony. He's there with Alex Smith. People don't remember. He coached him at Utah. That's great. They were both great listen. He's got dwayne in Haskins. He's got the maclaurin kid who's rookie receiver. They could draft chance. Chase Chevy Chase your position to draft chase show got our Smith is we said Eka coach them but Jerry comes to get him first. Jerry's got a better team. Jerry's got a bit of circumstance Jerry's going to meddle Snyder meddlesome behind the scenes jerry. Metals with the microphone. So they're both gonna be possible to work for but Dallas. You'd go to douse I so I've thought about this and me personally. I would rather work for Dan. Snyder than Ron Johnson footballer. I'll tell you what I'm GonNa tell you. Why because Jerry Jones is the star of the Dallas Franchise and he makes pronouncements before and after every single game every week and I think that can undercut a coach with his plate? Does I think that happens. Dan Snyder does not speak publicly. At all goes out. Players he used to Dallas is not a desperate team. Washington is a desperate. Dr Yesterday seventy percent of the people in that stadium were Philadelphia. It was seven. Had the sound turned down their desperate team. And if I'm urban Meyer. I write a contract with Dan Snyder. That gives me every single single thing I want and explicitly from getting my aunt. I understand that's and plus. I have the players who I used to coach. So that's why I dog franchise Baker Mayfield and Cleveland. Later on in the show later on is I WANNA rip him specifically and then take your shot you make this is what about the Cleveland browns. not this one bigger deal for the Patriots on Sunday. The tape or the win so the wind was nothing particularly special. The offense offense was bad again. It took special teams and defense to put the Patriots and position points. I know but I'm going to say I'm I'm GonNa say it was the tape now. I watched the tape. And I will concede to you that I have no idea what it was about but I feel this way I feel it. You have videotaped we. We understand the power of videotape. frigging one faulk. We understand that every other team in the league hates the Patriots wants to believe the Patriots Cheetah she dare wants to embarrass the Patriots. And for those reasons I think the tape itself which corroborates something or other is more important than the win okay. I think that was the news that you could see this. I don't understand. What did you know I said that I didn't? I don't know what it was but it must improves use the. I don't know if they were doing something bad. This this is a shocker to you this is it this was the NFL. The Patriots Won. Bake Nick prove they can win with ways other than their feeble often. They beat it to me. That's you know they beat the bengals. Don't get carried away. You didn't let you wouldn't say beating the giants of the red so don't don't get carried away. Did Joe Boroughs Hice mincemeat speech get you a little misty a little bit. I thought he was incredibly sincere. I've found him easy to root for going forward to wherever he gives drafting system. Now the phrase nice kid uttered anymore. He's a nice kid and I. I just thought the way you interacted with his parents coaches and thanking all of them in the position coaches. I thought it was wonderful. I am distracted by the way happily. So by the past heisman trophy were were there who were like seventy years worth of heisman trophy winners. It's just cool that I get distracted. But I like Joe Borough so what I'm going to go to is one of the main parts of his speech when he talked about being from Ohio going Ohio state transferring to Lsu. A lot of people will say if you use the number one pick in your the Cincinnati bengals goes and use it on Joe Borough. They'll say too bad for Joe Borough no Joe Borough wants to play Keno High. In the same way that Bernie Kosar was happy when he was drafted. SUPPLEMENTAL TRAE UP BY CLEVELAND. Because he's in Ohio by I think this will be very good and enclosing. Let me say go tigers. Tiger's ask you let's say you tricked me because I thought I was going to get a chance to really take shots later later later. Do yesterday lay you you boy Baker Mayfield. Yesterday dogs they were later. How Tiger feel about leading team? USA To victory at the Presidents Cup. He should feel feel great and he did feel great and you talk about people getting teary. Your high is well when he had his team around talked about these so my boys these are my boys now. I watched a lot more tonight. Tiger Woods was three and his Presidents Cup. He won a couple of matches with Justin Thomas and he was better than Justin. Thomas and Justin. Thomas knew it and then in the most important match of the entire Presidents Cup in the lead off singles match. He beat Abraham Answer. Who to that point? It's been three all at one and was the best guy came out days before no because I'm going to declare this make you nuts right now. Tiger Woods is a number number one golfer in the world. He's the best player in the world right now today. I'm not prepared to argue that right now. Let me go back to something to ask the questions that all the millennial reporters ask. How does this affect his legacy? This is not the Ryder Cup. No major I one he captained I know but is this impactful enough. Yes to help shape the way you think about tiger not in the moment of the number one golfer I mean tigers whole deal is whole resume. Great Win A and I will say this way using and they came back and they won and he did everything to be a captain and be a play. Those of preposterous Chris amount of golf. We didn't see I didn't watch. This really came at the wrong time. I'm not sure what win the nicer. Mind the clippers. I was into that so we just say this. I did returned back to the post game. It was great live and with drager was talking about how we did. They did this. My boys boys very sincere and I loved every second. The Tiger Likes Baker Mayfield. Not Not female. He won last Alcon Oakland on a low note. That was a dog moment was was it the rate half of all black hall and grounds. Are they bringing back. Freddie kitchen. Hope I'm that's a bad mood. As last time. That franchise franchise made a great best golf in the world right now. Wow Right now today. Every time people happy happy twenty eighth birthday David Johnson a couple years ago David Johnson was the number one fantasy. Pick on everybody's squat. Two Thousand Sixteen Johnson had twenty touchdowns overall Russia. More than twelve hundred yards now is an afterthought and cliff kingsbury offense. He only has two rushing touchdowns this season yes. They only gave him the ball three times. A game just six yards. Aren't meanwhile Kenyan Drake at twenty two carries for one hundred thirty seven yards four touchdowns but happy birthday. Will they be yesterday in the desert. They beat the team. You hate the teams love. Love to hate. They beat them. Gerald hope this is not his last home game. It is Larry Combat Happy Anniversary Winston around the state six years ago. You won the heisman show. Winston was selected number one overall by Tampa Bay and has had a rollercoaster career. There leads the NFL in interceptions with twenty four but he also leads the league with over forty five hundred yards passing in the last two games. His pass for nine hundred fourteen yards and eight touchdowns contract is up after this year. People wonder what Tampa they should do with them. They should give him the ball and get out of his way. Do you think now that he's gone. Through this season with the downton the next step becomes a great player to same also going to be the same they say. Happy trails to Oakland for the raiders. The raiders playing their last game and open yesterday. Blue is sixteen to three. Aw for flaws. Wars and a garden you mentioned touchdown downtown with thirty one second.

FTP Ep. # 147: Fallout in Dallas after MNF and Week 10 Waiver Wire 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 some odd case? Now, here's your host ready to jump into the thick of things Dwayne calendar. Welcome to the show, everyone, I have to break some blade. Breaking news. Jerry Jones has decided to extend act Prescott people. Oh, man. You know, we have the buckle from last night's game fresh in our memory and yet still with the Cowboys completely ignoring that. They have one of the top three running backs in the league in Zeki all Elliot to insist on their below subpar passing game which played right into the hands of the Tennessee titans. That game last night could not have gone any better for the titans to win. It's way. Fourteen. Cannot have any better Ezekiel Elliott only had six touches of the football in the second half of a game the amount of people on Twitter crying about the Cowboys was astounding on Monday night football. And to be honest. Even as a giants fan, I should be relishing with glee. But honestly, this is like the Eknath of what NFL football is supposed to be your are supposed to. Play to your strengths. And instead of the Cowboys assist on just trying to swing a square peg into around all the Cowboys are built to be a running dominant fiscal football team. And it said the are being run like a finesse football, which is not their strength. It's comical, it's absolutely comical just to prove the fact that they didn't make a mistake trading. First round pick to bring in Amari Cooper, when they could've gotten it any number wide receivers just as qualified as Mark Cooper and a better fit like golden Tate for third round pick. In order to prove Mark Cooper was the guy. They force fed him the ball the entire way through and cost themselves a home game. It's it's unbelievable. If you actually think about it and feel was any other NFL team. We would be surprised, but because we know the Cowboys don't actually have football people running the team, we know this for a fact because Jerry Jones himself as mid that. If a GM had his track record as GM he went fired himself long ago. This is just what happens when an owner becomes a fan and just takes over everything. It doesn't listen to any football people. This is the result of years of Jerry Jones running the entire operation for the Dallas Cowboys after he forced out Bill Parcells it's absolutely comical he wasted the prime years Tony Romo and as Brian. Aren't you? Finally started seat behind the curtain when Dez Bryant got released, and he got salty about it. It's sorta revealing the inner workings and both Jerry and his son Steven Jones went after death. But you saw the internal dynamic where does was bringing up the fact that they didn't bring in the best coaches to teach them certain things that he didn't have the best preparation of doing certain aspects. And that's what he was discovering unafraid see market, you know, you started seeing behind the curtain. So when you have a game last night where the Cowboys were favored by six and a half points. And you lose by two touchdowns that should tell you something. However, however because of the fact that the Dallas Cowboys are run by fan who doesn't want to admit he's wrong and needs help to daughter to do the things that most franchises are capable of doing. They are stuck in. This rut wherein you have. You have a hall of fame quarterback. Well, you should be in the hall of fame. Troy Aikman saying that the Cowboys the a complete organizational rebuild in order to get to where they should be. This is Troy Aikman. Barna triplets throwing stones at the castle. And it's not as though he's wrong. He's absolutely right. It's just that. Normally he would be one of the last people to be throwing stones Jason Witten cone out the Cowboys on the Monday night football broadcasts wins go into the hall of fame. He's part of the Cowboys. But guess what the reason why he doesn't have a ring because Jerry was horrible at being general manager. He costs Whitney ring. There's no question in my mind about that with the amount of talent Dallas between Whitten Romo and Dez. They should have a ring. But guess what they never put together a complete team because Jerry doesn't know what the hell he's doing GM and to double down. Down on everything. Because after after that embarrassing performance on Monday night football earlier today. Jerry goes on Dallas radio. It says that deck is getting an extension for what exactly you force fed the ball to Mark grouper and made this all about the passing game. Here's Dax that line twenty one of thirty one passes completed for two hundred forty three yards one touchdown and what pick that was not a very good picky eater. I'll be perfectly honest that is one of the most pedestrians. I've seen that line from getting hit twelve times in a game. Like deck has over three three and a half seconds to throw most passing downs. The offensive line's not the issue for Dallas. It's the fact that play callings uninspired, and you have a quarterback that they're forcing to be a pocket passer who's not a pocket passer. He needs to move. He has roll out. He has to do things and unconventional ways. And the Cowboys are so resistant to change the way football is supposed to be played there. One of these dinosaur organizations. You got Jason Garrett things got who hasn't had an original idea it over eight years still and is ten years. Head coach should have been gone after five. Get keeps getting chance the chance because no self respecting coach wants to work with Jerry Jones Scott Lenihan multiple times failed as an offense coordinator. And as a failed at the head coach only reason why he's there one of the few guys willing to work with under Jason Garrett. This is what the Cowboys at the work with. So as bad as things looked for the New York football giants. It could be worse. You could be Dallas. Because Dow's fans know that they're screwed Dallas fans know that there's no hope I could bring Cam on the line here the vet. But honestly, it's beating the dead horse. Dallas fans are depressed over the state of their Cowboys, and they should be because they're being held hostage by billionaire who's only getting richer by the day because he's he's turned his entire life work into being the head of the Dallas. Cowboys since then this is only it Jerry Jones is cling to fade because realistically, this is a car salesman. I mean, that's what he is. But he turned the Cowboys into a multibillion dollar operation it's a money-making machine which for which he should be credited for. But the reason why he's not beloved in Dallas is the fact that he such an ego maniac that he can't separate himself from the actual job of winning football games and give it to people who know what they're doing. He he's a kid in the candy store, he wants everything. But there's no parent around the tell them, no. Anyway, let's get into the waiver wire picks because you know, to me this is just gold for anyone in the NFC east. That's a fan of their team other than Cowboys fans because it's just more doubling down on the same failed policies that the Cowboys have been instituting last couple of years and they're going to go nowhere. So that's all there is to it about that. So let's get into the waiver wire picks in this week is slow week. But there is one name that I will bring up because basically he comes up as if he's a he's a playoff of a key imperial sketch. But that is Marquez Valdez scant Ling of the Green Bay Packers. So the whiteout is off yet another big game with one hundred yards or a touchdown in four straight games. He's been putting up double digit points drama Alson. Has been placed on I r with a groin injury. He's not going back. Randall Cobb keeps battling injuries like it's MVS. And you know, that's it for the number two wide receiver role. They can't commit cob because Cobb is too injured to play on the outside. So come a play the snaps on the inside their Sila chance. Comp could go down with an injury at any given moment of the rest of the way this year. So I was still look at quantum is Saint Brown as the other wide receiver to keep an eye on it. If you got a deeply, you could stash him too, but. Vow. This Gatling has got to be the number one play for waiver wires, and if you're on a fab budget, I would say, you know, you're probably going to have to put up twenty bucks to get them at this point. Because of the fact that we're getting so late into the season folks are getting desperate as to what they need on their team. And why now out are getting scarce to come by to be perfectly honest. So that's that's where it looks to be the case here the other pick is someone who's been dropped in multiple leagues. And there was a reason the very good reason why Duke Johnson of the Cleveland Browns. You know, you had to drop them because between Hugh Jackson and Todd Haley. No one knows who's to blame for the offense. But it was clearly obvious that do Johnson was being completely phased out. I probably put that on Haley because it sounds like a Todd Haley thing to do because not Haley only believes in having one running back. In. He doesn't believe in using multiple running back sets. But you know, do Johnson was completely phased out. The offense wasn't being used in the slot wasn't being used as a third wide receiver and get a give defenses. Multiple looks with two running back sets completely phased out. And now that Freddie kitchens is the offense coordinator do Johnson got force-fed the the ball. He had caught nine passes all on nine targets for seventy eight yards. Two touchdowns through Johnson is a very good capable football player when given opportunities he had no up to to begin to season. So that's why he got dropped in so many leaks. But now's the time to pick them up again. Because there's no way you can actually leave him alone going forward because if he's going to be used out of the backfield like he's supposed to and being that same of role that James white has for the patriots. That's a pick you need to have on your roster. No question about it. So if it costs you ten fifteen bucks to do it on a fat budget. Go ahead and do it. If if he if you've got a couple hundred needs for wave wire picks, I would still scale Duke Johnson higher up the priority. Skill to make sure you get it on on your roster because realistically, this guy who can get to double digit points out of the running back spot, and he's being used more as a wide receiver now, which is what he supposed to be used as so NPR leaks. That's that is incredibly clubs because that gives you a nice studied floor to work off of. I'm also gonna recommend Baker Mayfield. Yes, I will recommend Baker Mayfield. Just from the standpoint of the falcons defense is absolutely terrible. So with that being said there should be play passes underneath available to both Duke Johnson and that will help Baker Mayfield. So there's very good chance at through Johnson scores. A couple of touchdowns again, given the fish. The falcons have in picking up guys underneath passing routes. Why Washington was unable to execute that a out Smith has been complete another bus this year and be the Redskins offensive line went through multiple injuries this week. So you can now adds a count out the Redskins in the NFC tolerates for for that matter not that Dallas was going to be a part of this anyway. 'cause now this is strictly going to the eagles. But I'm getting off on a tangent other guys to take a look at would actually be Arizona wide receivers. I know that's something that we often have not said and all this fancy year. But looking at it this way, you've got Arizona playing Kansas City, both Larry FitzGerald and Christian Kirk should have optimal matchups on the outside and inside the slot. So depending on how Arizona once attack Casey because they will get behind in this game. So i'm. That a big fan of David Johnson this game. But I am a big fan of Fitzy and the Christian Kirk in this game because Arizona, we'll have throw the football sooner than later. So regardless there should be garbage signed points vailable for both wide out. So actually like adding both of them to the roster. Obviously this goes behind. Vow this can't link, but you know, you gotta if you got multiple guys on buys. Maybe you have to kind of look at it in a different light as to how you're going about your roster construction. So I would definitely look at both of those wideouts slight preference on FitzGerald over Kirk. But I do think that they're both viable as a whole though. Moving on you got Nick Mullins. He of the San Francisco forty Niners. You know, the Twitter verified, Nick Molin, thanks to the raiders incompetence. He's going to have the Monday night start against the giants. And there's a very good chance. This giants team will come out of by ready and willing to roll over and give up. So you know, if you got quarterbacks on buys, I would actually like Nick Mullins over playing Marcus mariota against the patriots. And it'll be we're going to be recommending mariota. I'm not one of them. I would actually rather start mullets against the giants. And I would mariota against the patriots. If you're doing away wire pick up my preference would be look at Nick Mullins instead of mariota. Moving on. We're gonna get into a little bit more with the running backs in terms of guys that you can keep on your radar. It'll be larger Maguire of the jet so McGuire played in more snaps against the dolphins this past weekend then Crowell. So he out-touch. Yeah. Beat them out and snap count thirty six to twenty three. Now. These are both ridiculously low snap counts because the jets again are one of these seems that Donut to understand how offense works in the twenty eighteen NFL where the league office has out lout outlaw defense. Now the issue here. The reason why I would recommend Maguire is the fact that he also caught three catches for thirty seven yards on five targets. So guar is filling in for blah, pow who unfortunately sustained serious neck injury. But the fact of the matter is he. He's the pass catching back and he's starting to get more carries than is AM CRA. Well, so you may actually get some value out of him this week because he's playing the bills, and as I told you in hopefully, you guys were able to cash in on this the bills are an abject mess. They're Super Bowl was Monday night football against the pats. And now they gotta play out the rest of the string of games when they really had no desire to because they gotta deal with the Peterman as their own quarterback bleeding bills players do not want to be in that locker room. They're just they're just satisfying their contractual obligations. So. With that being said, I would recommend the lodge McGuire. And I would put a quite a bit of money this one a few weeks. I would add some McMahon putting in money because you can steal one of these game weeks without question if you played the jets defense it is so easy to pick apart. What you're gonna get with the bills because you know, Nathan Peterman cannot play NFL quarterback. Derek Anderson still is not expected to be able to be cleared from concussion protocol. So there's a very chance Nathan Peterman is starting yet another game in the NFL, which is just a travesty of Justice for actual football fans have to watch this nonsense. But be that as it may take advantage of the opportunity by being able to pick up the jets defense and feast upon someone who has no business being on a football. Field. Moving on a couple of other deep hidden sleepers that you can look at for waiver wires, I wouldn't be bending that much money on them. No, more than five or ten bucks. If if you're even less on payroll, I would say less than less than five bucks. But you can look at John Ross wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals as well as MAURICE Harris also white out for Washington Washington has now put a Paul richton on I r for the rest of the c with an injured a C joint in his shoulder. So you know, Harris is going to be on the field regardless in three wide receiver sets, and he may be the number two wide receiver as long as Jamison Crowder. Can't get over his ankle injury, which has been lasting for over a month. Now, I don't know what the issue is. But you know, as long as Crowder's out Harris has to be considered at least a flex option with Washington. John Ross on the meantime, is going to be the number two wide receiver in Cleveland and Cincinnati rather? Because of the fact that AJ green is dealing with a foot issue that no one really knew about until after the game on Sunday where the the Bengals reveal the news that AJ green realistically has a significant foot injury. So, you know, they're saying AJ green doesn't need surgery. But missing at least two games this late in the season is never a good cipher heading into a fantasy football playoffs. So I'll be perfectly honest if I'm fantasy football owner, and I've got AJ green. I would try to sell high now because you know, you could try to hope that he gets healthy for the playoffs. But realistically foot injuries don't really heal themselves in two weeks. That's a really optimistic. Estimation. You could end up being in a spot where you're fighting for playoff spot and AJ greens, not healthy, and you need to be healthy to actually get into the playoffs. I wouldn't let myself get caught in that position. I would probably just cut bait. Now make a trade to get in another wide receiver. So even if you have to downgrade to number two wide receiver in an offense may maybe you can talk someone into trading stiff on digs four AJ green. And do it that way because digs is coming off a rib injury at deal in the primary go getter and Minnesota softens. These are ideas, I would fluid out there. Because again, you could find yourself in a really tight spot finding for a playoff spot and AJ green may not be available to you. So that pretty much does it in terms of the waiver wire picks. I have you know, you throw out a couple of darts on the tight end pool with Chris Herndon on the jets, and Jeff you're men on the Broncos because I mean, being perfectly honest, tight end is an absolute crap shoot. So there's not much else to be gained from there. So that's going to do it for the show. Hopefully, get some useful information out of this and catch up later on in the week. Take it easy, folks.

And now your host at you cannot joined by co-hosts, Josh and Aaron sign. Hello, everybody. And welcome to Finsider radio. This is Matt Kanada joined by Josh how Senate hearing son in the Miami Dolphins coming off a loss to the Detroit Lions thirty to twenty one dolphins. Now four and three on the season. Making carry on jobs has said it best on Twitter. Look like berry. Sanders. Kerryon Johnson nineteen carries one hundred fifty eight yards. Look Garrett blunt ten carries for fifty yards as seen the dolphins. Had a weird plan on defense. I mean, not so weird on the surface. But this seems they sold out to stop the weapons in terms of the receivers with Kenny golladay to receptions, thirty seven yards golden tape for receptions, thirty six yards and Marvin Jones three receptions twenty nine yards. They took care of them, absolutely fine. But the run defense seemed like they paid no attention to it and was daring carry on Johnston to beat them on the grounds. If. Anyone's ever watched carry on jobs Johnson the past few weeks, you knew that he was a weapon and someone very dangerous to to try to tackle to try to stop anything of that nature. Carry on Johnson. It was the man there are people calling for him all season long on the Detroit beat in the Detroit forums for carry ons to get more touches. And with the absence of THEO Riddick today and legare at blunt, just obviously up. There is a veteran player in up there in age, kerryon Johnson, finally saw a full a proved himself any proved that the other people calling for him, absolutely, correct. Throughout the rest of the game. I mean, the defense is the big story. I thought Brock Osweiler plate fine. I don't think he made any huge mistakes twenty two of thirty one two hundred thirty nine yards two touchdowns. I think it was about a one sixteen passer rating dolphins they're decimated at receiver. Devante Parker a healthy scratch. They seem to be moving on hand. Looks like he's going to get traded this week at some point diem. Dole is six receptions, eighty four yards. Mike is. Zeki through receptions, forty four yards. The loss of Albert Wilson was huge. I think if Albert Wilson was in there the entire game. This would be a different story. I think we might be talking about a dolphins victory or a very very close. Dolphins lost. He was ready to break a few while he was in a game was just a shoestring tackle short of it. I think that he would have made a huge difference as we went forward in this game. But the dolphins right now four and three as I just mentioned the patriots look like they're on their way to a victory that jets are going to lose. So the dolphins will remain in second place in the AFC east. But who are these Miami Dolphins? It seems one week there. One team the next week there another two weeks or a completely different one until they get back on track and won a game. And then as the same vicious cycle over and over and over again, we've said on this show the dolphins going to win two in the second quarter would be great. They're one and two right now they have a chance to go to and to on Thursday the Miami Dolphins turned at Checkland height before minutes after last week beating the Chicago. And this week against the Troy lions your overall thoughts on the team in. What do you think of them now? Yes, you say that Chicago just scored thirty one thirty eight. So there they have a chance against the patriots. But you're right. I mean this team one week they're open week. They're down you have to tip your hat off to Brock Osweiler went out there and did things that, you know, the haters even us as fans, I mean, we don't we expect Brock Osweiler eventually revert back to the Brock Osweiler that we saw in Houston. Now, we saw in Cleveland was sewn Denver. But he went out there. He did everything could ask for from a quarterback. But overall the defense they just laid an egg. I mean, we talked about kerryon Johnson we had plateau come on here and talk about kerryon Johnson. He went out there. And like what he looked like Barry Sanders. I mean, the dolphins had no way to stop him when Gary plan had success. I mean, they just ran the ball down dolphins throats, and for defense has been so good this early on in two thousand eighteen I mean to see them go out there and do what they did. It's a little bit of. Moralizing saving Howard. He had a couple of crucial penalties. You know that pass interference call that kept the drive alive overall. I mean the dolphins defense did nothing to help the offense. And you mentioned our Wilson going down that was a huge blow. Sonoma guy like devante Parker to go out there, and you know, fill that role. But it seems like you said he may be traded. It was nice to Kane, Drake. It back in every even he had a few mistakes. So the offense they went out there and played. Well, Brock Osweiler played. Well, but the defense just went out there and just could not stop the run game. They sold out like you said to stop the passing game golden Tate really didn't do much yet. One big gain Kenny golladay, he he's a monster. I mean, he's one of those most underrated. You know, second year wide receivers Neta fell right now and more of Jones see was pretty much nonexistent. So you'd like to see what the dolphins offense did on the same side. The dolphins defense just went out there and they also scam so ma- perk. Look yourself in the marine to get those guys playing because they're went up against a very good Houston. Offense Brock osweiler's having that what we might call revenge game. But if he plays way did today on Thursday, the dolphins should have no reason not to win that game is gonna come back down to the defense. And the defense definitely to step up. If they wanna have shot the playoffs, come January. The Texans are very hot team. And as you mentioned the dolphins have a lot of work to do before. This Thursday Texans are for no in the last four games in one against the Jacksonville Jaguars today. They are dealing with some injuries. But not as much as Miami is Albert Wilson may be significant leg injury that he suffered today in the first half. He may be a month or more. Now, if that is the case that could open the door for to bhante park at a comeback into this team. And not be traded. It would be one heck of a story of if that is the case and he plays as early as Thursday, and he just balls out and becomes the player that everyone thought he was going to be. We'll obviously see how that plays out. But I am not optimistic at this point of Albert Wilson playing on Thursday night, which leads us to our decimated receiver core. Dolphins addressed four receivers in today's game Wilson, stills amendola and grants. Once Wilson went down there were three then stills got hurt at the end down to to the Kenyan Drake playing on the slot ezekie out in the slot and out wide. It was just a bad situation. All around the when you look up and down the roster. They don't have anything else. I mean, they have. Devante Parker who's up up. Down. You have Isaiah Ford on the practice squad. You have others on a practice squad. But they are hurting it receiver position right now and amendola and grants and stills are not going to get the job done for. You Wilson's a game changer in the sense of his speed and has run after catch and everything else that happens there. But if you're counting on those three guys go onto Thursday nights. I think it's going to be a tough game to win with those guys because you're basically very limited in what you're going to do. Let's turn the tables to Brock Osweiler before we just jump there. Just want to say that in his having some technical difficulties on his end. He is not going to be able to join us for this podcast. He wasn't during my intro and then had to bow out. So we love you come back soon. We miss you. Love your certain we love you. So let's talk about Brock Osweiler. Again. I thought he had a great game that a great game. I I thought he had a good game. He missed a few open receivers towards the end there in that finally hit and Dollah in the end zone. I don't think what's wrong with this team has Brock Osweiler. I think they played better on offense with him than they did without him. When Ryan who was in the game, but Adam gays picked us receiver core. And this receiver core is a little concerning to me image. Dole is going to move the chains stills shows up when when he wants to and it's not necessarily his fault. He's playing on the outside. And I think he's better off in the slots and the stats and the numbers have shown that he's better off from the slot. Then you got your team grant who plays on the outside. But you know, he's he's here and there, and it's just up and down with this receiver core. There's no alpha receiver to get the ball to in desperate situations Albert Wilson shore. But now he's out for a month. You know, you look at the Bengals they got AJ green and good the falcons they got Julio Jones. You look at the sealers they got in Tonio Brown. You look at the all these teams and they have their Goto receiver in crunch time. The dolphins don't have any of this house. You see this receiver core working for the dolphins. It's worked in spurts here and there throughout the season. But it hasn't worked fully effectively in all of the games as far seems to come and go here, and there what do you think how can the dolphins improved throughout the rest of the season? Is it time for devante to step up? Or is it time for the dolphins to just move on from him? I mean, we'd like to see devante Parker step up. But if we haven't seen it yet. I don't know if it's gonna come. There's a reason he was inactive this today. I believe I think the dolphins do have a trade in place. What that may before? I mean anything at this point to move on from. Devante Parker said as it is. I mean you'd like to see him pan out here Miami. But it's obviously not going to happen. And maybe it changes scenery will do better for him. But overall, I'm not sure if this offense these wide receivers, I think they do have what it takes a lot of it's gonna depend on our Wilson because he was looking like one of those guys who every time he touched a football. You know, it could break out that big game. I mean last week. He was the reason the dolphins won that game. So you kind of hope that he's coming. I mean, you don't kind of you hope he's coming back. He's going to be healthy. So this resume core can become what they were. But ultimately, you need guys like Mike just sick education grant, you know, maybe you bring up an Isaiah Ford. Kenny stills. I mean, you need these guys to step up. But at the end of the day if they play the way they did today. I mean, there's no reason why team can't win the defense. Completely neg. They're going up against a very good Houston Texans team there now foreign three, and I mean, you don't wanna say must-win game. But you need to go out to take care of business. Kerryon Johnson a huge day. So Lamar Miller you should probably fees next week having a revenge game against the dolphins. But at the end of the day. I mean, that's that's a good defense over there. Dolphins have short week. They went out there in a you know, like I said late a neg- against Houston. So they gotta go out there and they got established a runner league. Gotta give that ball to Kenyan Drake. I mean, he's a guy should fill in there. He did a little bit today when our Wilson went out, but. This this receiving core. Definitely needs some work the offense in general needs some work. But it's the defense held his team back in. I think that's ultimately how the team's gonna finish your strong. If the defense doesn't go out there and play better. The dolphins can't make the playoffs in January. It's too bad. Because just when the offense starts clicking defense starts going in the opposite direction. Robert Quinn Cam. Wait, Charles, Harris and Andre branch have three sex combined on the year. That's not acceptable. This was supposed to be there shrink the team you traded a pick for Robert Quinn. Cam wake. He's going to be a free agent after the season. I think is age is starting to show Charles Harris has been a huge disappointment Andre branch. We all knew that contract was pretty bad. When it was signed. I think you're going to move on from him. The dolphins have a lot of holes right now in. Yes. Therefore in two four and three. Yes. They're in second place in the AFC east. Yes, they have a chance to turn the season around. But man, it's hard to not sit here and say. They have a lot of holes. And I feel like this is us two weeks ago after the Bengals game. And then they come out on the beat the bears and overtime, and they have a huge showing. And we're like, okay. It's just frustrating being a dolphins fan is. It's just frustrating. I don't think there's any other way to put it. So dolphins are on a short week against Texans. They're decimated by injuries. The Texans seem relatively healthy a few mixed here. And there in today's game against the Jaguars. But nothing that crazy the home the home team. I believe as something like four to five and two on the season on Thursday night football this year. But the away team has won the last two weeks. Dolphins needs to get this win. Otherwise, they're going to go to four and four and five on the season heading into the jets game. And then the schedule gets a little tough. And who knows what's going to happen from there? But the dolphins need to figure things out. And it says that says a lot that we say that every season. It's just sometimes you don't have any more words than what we've already said. And what you see on the TV. So as we go into Thursday house as we wrap up this week against the lions where did the dolphins go from here? We asked the same question two weeks ago. Yeah. And I'm sure we're gonna ask two weeks from now. I mean, the only way they can go is up but a game on the road against the very good Houston team. I mean, they've been underperforming this year, not entirely sure. What they did today. Believe they went out there and took care of Jacksonville Hopkins. Lamar Miller to Shawn Watson. I mean, those are some of the better players at their positions in the NFL. And if the defense plays a the way they did today on the road. I mean, we saw the dolphins team does on the road. It's not pretty end with short week against some of the better players. I mean, I'm not sure the dolphins win this week. If they do I think it says a lot about this season. It says a lot about this team. But based in that defense can't have anyone feel good about heading into a game against Houston. So I'd like to all we do is go up from here. But I the dolphins a reformed four by Thursday late at night. We'll see how it all shakes out. We'll be back earlier this week. Because of the Thursday night game will probably be dropping an episode on Tuesday morning Tuesday afternoon, Tuesday evening. Around that time as we prepare for Thursday's game against the Houston. Texans, Adam gays in his press conference after the games that he's not sure about opera Wilson that is a huge part of this offense. If he is out for an extended period of time that is certainly going to hurt Miami Dolphins again four and three where do they go from here? We don't know we will see Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde there is no other way to describe this Miami Dolphins team will continue to get some more answers one way or another this coming Thursday on Thursday night football when the dolphins traveled to Houston to take on Texans four Josh outside.

"So ugly turn on the black light and see what's lurking beneath losses in week six the cowboys part Ashby from late Amigo on and playing all my small music I love you Jack. Eighty nine point three W. R. Lost in twenty years you look at Jason Garrett Nine Seasons Two playoff victories at some point to give they have offensive line problems they have defense doc you're asking that question every week after a loss be surprised by the answer I'm not because I on this panel and others we've we've predicted make the playoffs and this is a weak division as we know it but this particular team has a lot of problems obviously in the defensive secondary they must have some problem with their coaching it's hard to take him seriously Franco's they seem to be so inconsistent we were ready to give Dak Prescott the MVP award after the first two or three weeks and now all of a sudden he's got six outstanding performance by Sam Darnold the guy who had been out since week one with mono for him to come in and play like that and for the cowboys you just lost at home where you were down thirty what does that mean frank and what does a loss New York football jets mean to the Dallas cowboys well for one because we're not able to make adjustments and when they have to play catch a ball which is what they've had to do the last three games they've been outscored forty seven to nine at the half they can't because we've been through this the last two seasons this is a team that gets off to a five hundred start last year they got off to a three and five star and somehow managed to make perceptions already during this very young season and they pay Zeke Elliot who you know if he has more games like he did on Sunday then he's going in the right direction but once again we find ourselves certainly Dak Prescott Kevin GonNa ask you this are you recalibrating doc I mean he lost a head to head game with Sam Darnold how do you explain that well I'm not going to say Jason Garrett would be fired for what two and a half years now and it doesn't happen so clearly Jerry Jones believes in Garrett now really all the way till the end of the season that remains Ascii at some point to give this is the first time they've lost to a team with their own four record or worse in twenty years this is arguably the worst cowboy loss in stunning these how'd you lose the jets Jerry Jones says the three laws isn't a role are not all on Jason's guests locker room is blaming everything on Jason Garrett like everybody wants to Jackie so are the Dallas Cowboys Mirage. I think it's fair to ask the also you know quarter a way through the season say who are the cowboys I'm amazed that Jerry Jones doesn't get tired of this so Jason Garrett question you're a reporter wounded three you go on the road you're down twenty one to six at halftime you're not even giving yourself a chance to win so those first three wins that they had the giants Washington then doc coach his contract runs out and there's a lot of noise on the outside. Terrell Owens tweeted come on Jerry Jones what are you going to do with your coach to get rid of them so all the noise on the outside he wants to make sure that chop and then they do something arrogant like trying to go for it on four oh you thought that was arrogant it could be a way that they were trying to chase jerry trying to prove that he's invested in this team amy yeah those are bad opponents who should win those games but it's hard to take the cowboys seriously after what's happened to them on Sunday new Jackie Mack how do you explain it if you're Dallas Jack Prescott was under pressure all game yes eka rushed for one hundred five yards he also carried the ball twenty eight times and I think the reason Jerry Jones comes out every week and says our coaches okay is he's made him rebel just coaching decisions going for the fourth down instead of kicking a field goal that change that change that changed the whole game darnold then goes deep Robbie Anderson game over the problems they have Ezekiel Elliott's not right pro that Prescott suddenly the shine is off Dak Prescott a little bit he's struggling to find these guys well you know the forty niners good they're really good really good defense but to me this is about the rand this is the first time in Sean McVeigh's era that they've had more time to prepare than the other so much of this team is based on that offense law and those guys aren't healthy that's fast God does those the same Elliott doesn't look the same Jason Garrett always looks the same he's always clapping it out no matter what it is ramp that's our next door year San Francis as undefeated and Richard Sherman he's telling people calling for tenders sure how does Jared Goff Mrs along with Sam I got he came up short but let me just say this I mean one of the reasons that this is not shocking to me patriots that is a really good team so funny at the beginning of every NFL season we have it all figured out we know who's good we know who's bad and we know who maybe we'll be in the mix asking the next seventy eight is pretty impressive and for the rams to me I think it's a little bit of a super bowl hangover we saw it with the Carolina Panthers when they lost the Denver obviously Atlanta when the wins a win is a win the combined record loss record of those teams three and fourteen so maybe this really is who the WHO they are without Lau Collins Tyron Smith I mean opera seventy eight yards six days earlier Baker Mayfield throws one hundred and I'm not saying that's Dan Marino and Joe Montana but in this day and age to hold one quarterback one hundred yards the fall apart jared goff is obviously to quarterback who's dependent on Todd Gurley their own for thirteen on third and fourth down think about that old for thirteen you can convert he's managing Garoppolo it's all about the running game they established the run their second in the league in rushing yards behind the Baltimore Ravens they make Jimmy Jeez job a little easier in your Tony they did not win a road game last year now I'd love to say it's all Jimmy G. Thirteen and two as a starter but what's what's great about Kyle Shanahan is so you just mentioned that stack that over thirteen you know what they're going up against the second best defense in the NFL right now giving up just two hundred and thirty seven yards just behind the yeah it's all about San Francisco to frank just gave you all the great defensive statistics but here's another one to think about this San Francisco is already three zero on the road didn't say a word about these four nine is not only do they have an outstanding defense but they also have a top five offense four hundred and eight yards per game escape what did he say frank you WanNa last word on can you focus a little bit on the offensive line struggles they've had a team that's based on that I think that's the issue I think the Texans are for sure for real but when you look at the chiefs a team that we thought could be a super bowl contender they can't they can't play defense they can't stop the run and the Texans appearance picked up that was perplexing but really start with you Jack you're the Texans for real or the chiefs regressing here I think both things are true they come up with these running backs who are grinding that well I did not see that common Garoppolo emeals been very efficient so this is a really good team and this was the pressure off a quarterback who's really extensively in his first full season you know on the road really a road game for San Francisco did you see lost both games again they they're they've lost their offensive performer and they can't figure out what to do them blackstone was more about San Francisco or it's more about San Francisco nine years I mean they wouldn't got them back into the game I mean they still needed to score yourself bill was this more about San Francisco or more about Los Angeles the second year it was a very bizarre play by the way mahomes interception where he he seemed to think that he was gonNA free play through it off and flag prevented appearance wasn't a flag for you're and I still think he's a little gimpy that adds up to a whole lot of problems for team that we thought was going to be very much atop the AFC sola well I don't think mahomes lost to the New England patriots it shows you how hard it is to sustain that greatness the Patriots could do it most teams can and right now the rams and the Mac what do you see in this match up last night the four hundred I saw the same question to you well kyle Shanahan's offensive genius but they're winning because of their defense think about the fact that yesterday jared Tori fourth down because golf doesn't have a safety valve and girly and the aren't able to adjust I don't know what the answer is I don't think the answer is with the Rams I think during liquidated for a long season here because around late in the game with a chance to ice victory that's exactly what they did Watson Completed Pass Hopkins is outstanding and they were to finish the game I was in Jackie's right key such a clash come on the steelers chargers game last night that's different that's different Than Ping the Kansas City chiefs offense off the field as Akita Colts did it a week earlier and Houston did ESPN blackstone absolutely huge thirty five first downs they had the Kansas City chiefs only had the ball for twenty minutes because of that ground game that they were able to to utilize and Shawn Watson is doing things right now this game that are absolutely stunning he is in total control of what he's got to work with which is a lot and just think we started off this season talking about who they were going to be hundred percent his ankle seems to be bothering him I thought that turnover at the end of the first half was a killer but let's give the Shawn Watson a lot of credit with the way that he played and Bill O'Brien going for it on fourth three on his first day at work but he won't let Jason Garrett Gopher an entire decade you're absolutely right on that we move on what the forty nine hundred seat to completely shut down and that's because the rushing defense allowed over one hundred yards rushing in four straight games that's the worst and chiefs in in the last forty two years so they can't they can't get off the field I don't see myself anymore if you don't see yourself clearly can you really expect others to I'm having a breakthrough it's not easy any loss collaborated now we move on keep him on how can you keep hearing over I this is this is it's amazing that you bring this up plaque Jerry Jones where did he fire Tom Lee yeah that's Nice Diagram football and the pope we'll be back like I was with him in August perfect horn is brought to you by CDW chiefs to you more about choosing Kevin mentioned that twenty minutes time possession that's the worst the chiefs history since he started keeping possession seventy also allowed the second the re the road to the chiefs that everybody's going to do and that is run the ball worked clock take the ball out of mahomes hand now mahomes isn't getting a lot of protection you just saw chiefs how many times you see a guy make a great play in the field and then lead off the inning five innings you're feeling no one understands how lonely these no one will even let me into their house I knock knock but they ignored me what else I look in the mirror and CDW people who get Geico Presents Monster Counseling Dracula Tell Me Team and they've lost the game they can't figure this one out they it's Todd Gurley gone they came in on the they don't know how to handle themselves they have this great drive the start of the game and then and win the game and the eleventh to save you from a usual Carlos Correa walking off national to buy or sell the decision itself The bill I know the rams and the dodgers have you down now you're at okay average game that is a very good play in the sixth inning of tied Better take notice with Texas doing Patrick Mahomes I mean this is the second week in a row the chiefs offense can't really get into it the vampire but with Geico it's super easy to switch and save hundreds on your car insurance welcome back to around the horn coming to you from the Heineken River deck go field and dislikes almost somebody's figured out the secret to stop being KC in in you know Houston's good and they're gonNA be contender but this to me is about hello smart back if you were if he were derrick jeeter he'd be on a billboard right please respond to that this is a huge win for the Astros you've got to win this game the way Berliner Pitch and isn't it about time that we agreed that Houston's Bolton is every bit on par as the vaunted New York game be careful and it was a game that you said yes very careful watch yourself guys Kevin Black nobody you buy from this being how has this happened this has happened because the nationals pitching has been as you alluded to outstanding Annabel Sanchez flirting with a no no Sir they beat off those wave after wave of relief pitches at the Yankees throw at you nailed that one less rambles and you knew how many San Francisco fans you see at the stadium will move walk what the Texans this the chiefs Carlos Hyde says the League better take note listen on defense missing anybody on defense I mean that defense is as good as it's ever been despite the loss of all pro and bill was just more about the Texans it was a series saving play because you don't want to go to New York down to two Oh and career has been cold this post-season so far that may awaken them up and not only that gear look at the drag he calculated the last two weeks of course opposed to all season long and that corrects for temperature I have no idea what them yes take care hello at home with home and now they're in Washington let's talk about that series the fact that we can show every hint Saint Louis has in this series not great bob four when you absolutely they have to the how do you even get only four hits that's mind boggling to me and I have a feeling it may change I gotta figure at some point and this is the crowd yesterday in Los Angeles Against Pittsburgh so I think that's his L. Laskey also paint compare the chargers two games whether you think Sanchez insures are read the cardinals saying the Paul Is Different is something Arthur baseball perspectives by the way talking about drag you're up to nothing after you've won on the road you win so they had to win this game well the exact Jackie cardinals here right now that's right cardinals go down to DOC GONNA have to go on the road to win the runoff flask. US for let's see it. This is the crowd yesterday in Los Angeles Against San Francisco. Yeah sure any other questions to sizable kirk cousins he's opting out there nats have a lot of balls in that rotation and a lot of Adam tonight with Strasbourg so you're all about the nets now every day I love you know what you nothing about drag your here's something about direct flashy we'll move on Kirk cousins you like that do you like that for ready by Zach you made kirk cousins story that's why you're being asked about it and give the Vikings a couple of weeks ago looked like they were imploding are being Matt Scherzer for the first time in a while and you know what David Martinez making the right calls to his bullpen situational and going to do little as a closer this is going anywhere anytime soon he may want to be traded if I'm the vikings betray the last week I think when you're getting three touchdowns coming your way maybe not brown okay you there and buy or sell the astros getting back in this case it was a good standing there was a great play was a series turning play in fact reminded me of Derek jeter in two thousand and one postseason history by any team so the the number plus the cardinals nineteenth and the League against Kerr balls as far as batting average is concerned the got them pretty good yeah buying the the Vikings is on the upswing I'm selling Zach Brownies out of tune with his comments and you know what else I'm selling that Cheetah showdown ward LSU rising the number two after beating Florida Georgia at the tailgate they were cooking gator during the game and Lsu but the key was Georgia losing at home to South Carolina that's the kind of lost that much further on the road could knock you out of the final four national semifinal you know what else it's the it's the win for South Carolina 'cause let's give them a little credit that's been the big difference all about pitch guy so yeah clutch hitting also by Adam meeting finally getting hit and I think game one with Sanchez taken was last night I don't agree with that I don't agree I will say this twenty two out of twenty five times really good inside the huddle they were attacked everywhere this week and he comes through you see something different and cousins this is a new easy moment yes I like everybody in the show to give him some credit brought up at a meet and he said how did you get out of his slump he did the exact opposite of everything which is an incredible Danza isn't that what the cardinals should be thinking right now right one right now on Kansas City anybody no I saw a little note not for you black stone I seen eyebrow back-back fan they have got George Wow I wasn't seeing that that was an incredible amount of information from South Carolina Angles Georgia it's how they lost that into the eighth you don't have your closer Daniel Hudson who's with his wife was giving birth to their daughter was used bullpen got you out after an emotional wind that you had in game five against the dodgers that will put Giovane kipnes lot into the spotlight he's a defensive Lineman for South Carolina he's GonNa be a first round pick he's an absolute beast and played almost every snap in that game td's three to digs right in the face of his former Washington teammate Zac Brown who had some stuff from before the game here is that after I'm here to title Game Soon I see what you did there Jack plachy thank you can we finally give her cousin credit anybody on your show give him some credit there were attached outside the building inside the what he did of course I'm GonNa go with the guy that saved his own team at for making a huge embarrassment I play I feel sorry for number whoever got got carried into the end zone maybe he'll get bigger maybe he won't I feel sympathy for him you know sometimes along interception is just as good as a punt and there's an example of it writers frank they can if they run the table they'll still be all right Louie Lewis in the SEC championship game that was always gonNA knock them out we'll move on touchdown where you carry your opponent in we saw this so much harder than you think to be quick as you get your songs on my songs included Red Hot Chili Peppers and angel from Montgomery by Bonnie Raitt and I learned something did you know in high school check this out unbelievable lifted carry it do the firefighter and the pick where you run the wrong way your teammate saved Schmidt's GonNa come up and get a big hit for this team but it is all about the pitching and I how does it change right now I don't know those four here's the eighteen innings it's the worst one more thing like most big states oh yes I like let's turn to the bridgewater bridge wine yes yes most of you may know I really love music and ninety two point five the Reverend Heber was nice enough to let me be the guest Dj for one hour as you expected it wrote that Song John Bryan Rohde seven artists have recorded these are the things I never would have known if I hadn't had this experience thank you eh of everything including Brian Kelly with zero plum about the sideline your takeaway from that weekend in College Franks well they were cooking but in the game where the offensive players offensive player what if slammed into the turf could you get a roughing penalty as offensive player Falling Rand Jerry cops seventy yard the chiefs second week in a row they don't have next year at home but working to start with the Dallas cowboys he's you by tackling you before you get a safety watch as this plays out check and tell me which play you like best and watch as the young man finds out exactly what happened body feeling we admitted he had been overlooking couldn't get the ball to and so yeah there you go good story I apologize. He was accountable for himself at least

Raiders head to Lambeau to face the Packers

"Hey Vegas nation listeners I wanNA take thirty seconds to introduce you to a new podcast from the Review Journal called critical condition accounts from one October it's a five part series sharing the power awful stories of to Las Vegas officers who responded to the scene of the one October shooting on the Las Vegas Strip you can find wherever you are listening to the podcast right now just search vegas nation presented by ESPN sports mobile from station casinos facing a civil suit for domestic violence the mother of his child ex-girlfriend has accused him of domestic violence in this civil suit and while this dot com get the Vegas nation APP to follow everything happening with the raiders. You'll find it all there and while you're there comment let us know how we're doing we love hearing from you guys the packers raiders in Lambofield for this week right off the top here guys though I think we have to address some of the latest news Trent Brown right now hey everyone it's time for another episode of the Vegas Nation podcast brought to you by as sports mobile station casinos don't forget to check out Vegas Nation the AFC west and the chiefs keep losing with mahomes struggling so this is kind of opening the door here for the Raiders won seven teams right now and they see conference all right let's get into it here I'm Heidi hang with my two reader beat writers Adam Hill and Miles Simmons who are out in Alameda today where the raiders will be practicing and Girolamo Alison. We're going to get you up to date with that and we're also going to hear from Todd Dewey with the best bedding action of the week and will preview we'll try and like I said to bring the right kind of people in here we think that can build championship football team has the most loyal fans in the world I know it hurts that we the question disciplinary issue this point miles what kind of ramifications if any do you expect Trent Brown to face I'm not sure if you're will be any at least I saw Adam you tweeted that he was in Rehab pull though do you think he plays on Sunday atom please as long as he's going to be so now that he's kind of working out he's coming back does he get plugged right into one of those starting guard spots atom or do we expect him to need more time before IOS he's he's dealt with some injury issues with has been able to play through them this year he's a huge blow he's able to go obviously but I think it'd be more of a hassle nothing to be taken lightly especially an organization that boasts zero tolerance policy on domestic violence trim Brown wasn't seen at practice yesterday a he said she said type of issue and because of that when these things can get settled out of court that in some ways sometimes prevents we'll find out I guess as the week goes on but as long as you tells you ho-gau joining said yesterday you'll find out more today about where he is health wise the difference between that and being criminal case is actually very very significant so you see a lot of time where it is if it's a civil suit it becomes awed very serious allegations as much different than a criminal case in the process will allow a little bit differently so the bigger question is is he healthy unfurl I saw miles on your twitter that he had been a full participant in Wednesday's practice and we'd speak here on a Thursday he had suffered cussin' dwayne Harris he was limited and also tyrone Williams not seen a practice so are the status right now those players the NFL in different teams from actually investigating what exactly happened so I don't know what exactly their affiliations are going to be but as I think Adam just put it in very nicely succinctly to this plane I think right now is a case where this is a civil suit and I ruinous free optimistic back out there and I think that's trending in that direction that's what I would say is in heaven I said at this point for this week if Trent Brown does not play it seems like it would be more injury related than it would be disciplinary related to something that has to do with this a winning record they got it done against the bears they're heading to green bay where they could get it done against the packers but the packers right now without two key receivers and Davante Adams in London you go through now by week and now you're at out Wednesday of the following week and then he's still not brexit I think that that does mean it is pretty serious so that he's going through the concussion protocol he's been able to get through it because he's a full participant in practice that's good news I think that that means all indications are thing after their bye week the raiders are getting right back into it here we're heading into week seven of the season and the raiders are right now three and two that's good for second in he actually pretty serious for him right now he's not been on the field senses the raiders victory over the Indianapolis Colts and so when you go through the we in place right back into the starting lineup body reacts to practice in this week the media it's been fairly quick recovery it's about it's about what we voted the Oakland raiders forever but we are still later next I think it's going to be a go get an army coming into Las Vegas he's a quick steady he's career right now he's got a ninety receptions one thousand thirty seven yards and nine touchdowns what do we expect yeah well I think starting with tyrod Williams you get this plantar fasciitis or whatever it is as Jon Gruden put it on Wednesday that does he will be able to start you will be able to play on this week against Green Bay which again I mean when you get through by week and you hadn't played the week before you have well Adam also said unfortunately when he mentioned the main tackle here on that offensive line can or can't go but we did see kind of a yeah he's healthy in his body feels right after practicing a few days he's absolutely the store he pulled right back into that spot let's get into some of the other injuries here we'll have to see if he was able to get back on the later this week because obviously you need him I'm at that wide receiver spot and then on Cleveland Bureau I think when you see with his role coming into this week against the packers does he get a lot of Reps Ike how much do we expect to see Jones on the field good news here with Gabe Jackson seen practice Monday he had suffered a knee injury August eighth when the rams and the raiders had joint practices and we had them seen since talk about a Catholic shoot that develop Monday I don't know if that's very serious issue or a calf issue that cues them from the media that is for practice have a lot of mystery going around about his his injury John Kennedy say so that becomes an issue I think Zeke Jones if he's if he's up to speed on the offense in question I know this is GonNa come to fruition suit as far as disciplinary actions this is a process play civil suit is certainly a much different severe shoulder injury much of the season last year emerges early receiver Kelvin. Benjamin was the number one going into the year remember that name that's a flash in the past of this year a little bit of time to recover from that concussion so all indications are good on him as furloughs I think he wants to eat out there as quickly CANTU obviously everybody that's entered let's get back out there but he's taken a lot of a lot for kind of his slow started not really Mayton too much with the impact yet not I think you know when you have to hear about that and then you have to be heard is going to cut talent he showed flashes at times in Buffalo it's a team that I've watched closely in the past. Id so I have some thoughts on find out after after a couple of practices how does how does he respond how does his body feel it's been awhile since on the field so I think all those things are questions to be answered feels like Johnny on that but you know he he struggled a little bit his first year he had a shoulder issue that really wasn't talked about it on after years kind of disclosed and you've been playing with a pretty do all right we'll work on that right now what we're going to do is go ahead and step away for a minute and get todd doing here talk some betting numbers for weeks Evan in the NFL so when we return we're going to break down this game in Green Bay stay tune this episode of Vegas Nation will be right back aim because I got tyrone Williams it's a sixteen I mean it's a wide receivers like spot spots psycho hold six receivers bieber kind of on the on the shorter end of the recovery process in new helped out with the bye week trying to getting back on the field here he went to practice I think you're gonNA aw.

I'm curious to see on the field at him as somebody that hails from the Buffalo Bills as Jones I saw miles is not the the raiders receiving core I don't expect tyrod Williams at this point that has been so so long since we even see them on the practice field and they allegations are that he that he is at this point I think he's a guy wanted out there I know we've accents East Carolina who's a second round pick would've thought here against the raiders what kind of action have you seen on this game yeah number is dropping pretty rapidly Heidi thanks for having me because the sharp and now they're back in the raiders in a big way against the packers at Green Bay coming up there by the packers open seven and a half point favorite but at some places at CG technology in you know the packers are coming off a short week after escaping with the win over the lions on Monday night football which they trailed yesterday about how how happy for Jones a fresh start in insert over a little bit Get to a place where he can thrive in many said hey is really good thirteen nothing so plenty of five and a half out there as of Thursday if you still WanNa Grab Oakland in Oakland of course three and two straight up and against the spread off consecutive wins over the colts in the bears in London and coming off their bye so a good spot for the raiders off the by the hackers in a bad spot on a short it's a deeply impacts have of because car only likes to throw to their waller and we kinda yesterday really well and this is you know you you know sword Peterman they were in the same draft class with the buffalo bills two thousand seventeen new Peterman to fill that role so they need somebody to be the lizzy Jones the guy that comes in you know since the world on fire but Liza capable guy where he was tops in is really felt a favor this year so he's been inconsistent at times but he's got the talent of his guidance Gaudy numbers in college he's had some games people want to tag along with the sharps out day the sharps to some of the numbers of change but the sharp plays are on the bills read both underdogs in Rhode teams against the spread. Heidi alright what else have you seen for this week in the NFL what kind of Bets Zits donnas lowest four and a half at the West Gate in it's at five and five and a half at some other places sharp better jumped on the rate is plus six bettors are on the raiders for the third time in their last four games there are autumn against the chiefs in a loss than there are on the raiders against the colts when they beat the colts on the road the dolphins of course Owen five straight up one in four against the spread after last-second cover against the redskins last week but it's a lot of points delay the bills the people of the sharps doing here with some of the big bets in the NFL this week yes some oddsmakers around Las Vegas in got some sharp plays if uh-huh a great defense but they don't score that many points but the sharps expect them to get it done against the dolphins they took the redskins getting ten points at home as week trends around the raiders side to this season underdogs in Rhode teams have been thriving fifty six thirty five and one against the spurs dogs at Seattle at plus four and that one's down at three three and a half and they also took the New York jets is plus ten ten point home keep that one really close in that one so that's all the sharp plays and NFL week seven this week I'm gonNA listen to you I'm GonNa go take boys and now they're a huge primetime home doug against the Patriots who are undefeated and have a great defense but they're undermanned on offense so the sharps thanks Jen cool so I'll let you know what happens with my bedding ticket next week we may be just eating cat food you know because I can't get a chicken dinner todd thank you so much for coming on you could maybe I'll get in on that humor so scary to take teams like the skins on the jets but it seems to work out well for the books okay wrong call but he hit the packers alive on the final drive which led to that game winning scores so I mean had that call up in there the packers might have been coming in the more time acid since you've been on the field I expect him to try to you know you can't hurry that if you cut protocol really WANNA get out Orlando to play so miles when you look at all of this stuff that happened with the packers in the past week I mean how much do you think just with their receivers down all Monday dogs to the forty niners unbeaten niners but sharps don't think they're quite ready to be a double digit road favorite numbers down to nine and a half the titans they took the titans short home favourite over the chart up two and a half they took the ravens as Rose Lady Sixteen and a half over the dolphins down one opening a fifteen and a half it's up to seventeen sharps bet on the bills right away at sixteen and a half and I will I will but I don't know the bill maybe Tennessee ago going against the niners on the road I like all that action follow him on twitter at t do eat thirty three fine all of his work in the Review Journal in print or online at review journal Dot Com. Todd thank you again so much this week on a loss guys when you have a short week and you're preparing that way and coming off of this kind of controversial win he lost underdogs so the Patriots on Monday night football that number is down to nine and a half the jets look much better with Sam Darnold quarterback all different team beat the COB You know loss for them they kinda got a controversial win win the trey flowers call at the hands of the face happened even later admitted it was cassettes let's get into this match up in Green Bay guys I mean Green Bay's on a short week and coming off of what could have turned out to be that's going to be a kind of opening for the raiders to come in here and do something against this team who once looked kinda formidable on offense Robert Moore recovering than you might have otherwise been on if you did not have that we off so and then especially when you factor in the fact that Green Bay is coming off of a short week now the that's been something throughout the season the address they had planned to end the year with the Sawyer Brown entira Williams at Brown on hurting nobody else's really stepped up it's like Davante Adams Right now with Turf Toe Geronimo Allison was hurt in that game so he's a big question mark if he's going to play or not but it's tough enough to come in I think there's a lot of factors that play into it I mean first of all the raiders are coming off the bye week which almost inherent puts you at an advantage because your body's feel better we really decimated there Aaron Rodgers can make receivers better but it's GonNa be tough for him to try to try to know who to count on who he's playing on a short week so atom it's Kinda tough normally to go into lambeau but like myles said they're coming off a bye week here do you think the crowd is worn down by we know that Jon Gruden complain yesterday about the travel so we know it's getting to them a little bit but it's about as good spot as you could possibly hope for to try to go in and steal at least for you so I think he's he's up to speed is ready to go the company knows the offense you've just convince made a pickup zeta-jones and my fantasy football team advantage for the raiders just in the fact that yeah you are coming off and you have some more guys healthy than the other team end at other teams okay so we talked about the wide receivers Aaron Jones was essentially benched kind of because the turnovers and Jamaal Williams took a lot of carries in the offense really smart cards as well other they really been impressed with that aspects of if he's up to speed and the heat helping receiving core there's no question about it the defense because there's a couple of guys with the last name Smith who have been keeping very busy in the sack department between the two of them they've got thirteen and a half sacks right now and they have Blake Martinez at linebacker I mean he's I think leading the NFL in tackles right now so this team I mean they can the latter half of the game so that's going to be another thing to look out for like you said atom clusters this one not really in the case of an injury but let's flip over to against Bradley job in in

Chargers LAtely Episode 14: Rookies, Randy Bullock's leg help Bolts outlast Bengals 16-13

"Sports betting dime DOT COM provides the coverage fans need to bet with confidence every time find the best odds, track key trends and make smarter bets on all your favorite sports. Check it out at sports betting dime. Dot Com. What's going on everyone and welcome to a victory Monday edition of chargers lately as always I'm your host Michael. Peterson and I am it static I'm excited I am stoked. But not a hundred percent. Any of those things because even after win. The charges did win in the manner that they did. It was a sixteen thirteen victory last second win over the bengals that didn't involve the chargers hitting a last second field goal or the chargers scoring a last second touchdown. They won essentially because Randy Bullock Cincinnati kicker pushed right the game tying field goal and somehow also hurt his leg at the same time just kind of add insult to injury. But nonetheless, the chargers one, it wasn't pretty but an ugly win counts the same as a blowout a pretty win whatever you WANNA call it. All means the same in the win column. So let's get into the game a little bit kind of go over how everyone performed. Well, let's start with the chargers. Obviously. tyrod Taylor finished sixteen of thirty for two, hundred, eight yards no touchdowns no interceptions essentially no turnovers of any kind and that's essentially what we hoped to get from tyrod Taylor. Right. But at the same time, even though he doesn't turn the ball over that much he didn't risk it too much and I mean he did throw a couple of deep passes but unfortunately, the majority of those deep passes were not even in the vicinity of the receiver whether it was hunter. Henry in a corner route Mike Williams go route, and although he did hit Williams a couple of times there were a few bad misses. In general. It just didn't look like he was on the right page with receivers down the field I mean, there's a difference between getting the right read. It pulling the trigger hitting wide open receiver at the intermediate or deep level. Right. But this was throwing up to Mike Williams and hoping he makes the play for you. Essentially, it's not a good play for tyrod as much as it is a great play for for Mike Williams. So At the end of the day, he was just a hair over fifty percent completion percentage for two hundred yards. Again, no scores the only touchdown of the day for the chargers came from rookie running back Josh Kelley who finished with twelve carries for sixty yards and the lone score. He got the bulk of the carries for at least opposite of Austin in the second half because of a quad injury that Justin Jackson sustained not sure how he's looking right now if he's going to. Be Potentially back in the lineup for week two against the chiefs. But all I, know is no matter what happens I think Josh Kelley earned some increased naps and an increased role in this offense starting running back Austin one, thousand nine carries eighty four yards decent four point four yards per carry for not a bad job but here's the craziest thing and again I think you know this comes down to rivers, loving his SCAT BAX and loving dumping it off to his running back underneath. But tyrod Taylor targeted Austin just a few times. And actually just once he caught one pass for three yards. One target for. And this is a game where the chargers were down quite a bit yet wasn't like super late. They were holding onto lead late. So it's not like they were needing to march down the field to. Score. Tied Up. So there's a lot of targets come from, but still he's the number one running back in this offense and he's not just a running back right? Like a standard rushing only that guy catches passes. He caught a ton last season nine, ninety three yards receiving last season. But for whatever reason, it just wasn't in the game script and at the same time, I don't think tyrod 's. Registering or wired that way to look for especially when he's getting pressure in his face, there were a couple of times. I did just watch the game where Ecuador should have been dumped off to. But he had to chuck down to Mike Williams on a third and four for some reason, it was just kind of mind blowing to me. Hopefully, they can get that righted as far as leading receivers for the chargers hunter Henry led them and catches an yards with five for seventy three. Mike Williams four catches for sixty nine yards keenan allen with also four catches only took it for thirty seven yards and then Guyton green and with their one catch alone. Defensively Casey Hayward led the team with twelve total tackles. All Solo tackles. It's a quite a day for Hayward did have to pass breakups looked really good shadowing AJ Green. Whether or not he sold it a little bit in the end zone at the end of the game for that offensive pass interference, which I think they got the call right with his extended arm by green does not matter he played wonderfully. Kenneth. Murray. Junior the rookie started at Middle Linebacker in this one finished with eight total tackles. I thought he did solid. It's not like he he's led up a big player did anything bad right? Like he did exactly what I needed to do, and the only thing missing was potentially a big play in some way. Joy. Bosa finished with five one sack two tackles for loss and they also got sacks from Jenin. WHOA SUE and Jerry Tillery of all people which is phenomenal from Taylor did look good he was getting a lot more pressure on a consistent basis in this one with his increase snap load. With rotation with Justin. Jones. I thought it was great man even the backups when boatswain ingram were out in whoa sue and Rochelle were in there along long tillery and Damion Square. They were still getting out of quarterback pretty well, great job by them. Special teams wise jewelry had a forty six yard kickoff his one and only of the game huge huge deal for the rookie. Great. Unfortunately, the charges weren't able to turn it into anything which was a huge bummer. But if that's something that chargers fans can look forward to. I think that's amazing. That's exactly why they drafted him. And just a solid pick at least early on for Joe read. Let's. He doesn't King only returned two punts for seven yards. Michael Badgley was three or four on field goals with a long a forty-three I believe he did miss fifty or fifty, one yard field goal understandable. But let's kind of shore that up because otherwise the game wouldn't have been nearly as close at the end I. Think. Other than that tie long five punts forty eight point eight yard average one inside the twenty good deal by him. Now, looking at the Bengals, Joe Borough could have had a much better debut but the chargers defense at other plans, the rookie ended up completing twenty three of thirty, six passes for one, ninety, three and one really ill-advised pick by Melvin Ingram forgot to mention that charges only pick of the day came Melvin Ingram on a screen pass where essentially he was hooking Giovanni Bernard with one arm and Bros still decided to try to pitch it to him before he was taken to the ground an ingram corralled it with one hand it was beautiful and it was like exactly what you'd expect from King Mill, you know. Just, an incredible play dude everything Kinda Guy King Mel rushing the chargers the Russian defense looked a lot better and yeah the offensive line for the Bengals isn't good but mixing had a good season last year and they held him to only sixty nine yards on nineteen carries. It's a three point six average longest run went for fourteen big deal there Joe Borough eight carries for forty six yards one touchdown a twenty. Three Yard qb draw honestly just the best play you could possibly have at that moment I'll be totally honest. They spread them out four wives, five wide whatever it was and he was really smart. The way he uses center as a lead blocker. Nazir adults enforced took a really bad angle on that one like really bad. The fact that he would get caught up on the block between Ray Sean and the center. Just. Bad look overall. But that was the Cincinnati like lone touchdown of the game and then Bernard one for seven. Receiving. Wise Aj Green first game in over two years he had nine targets but just caught five of them for fifty one yards. No scores Sesia zoo Ozama excuse me four catches forty, five yards tyler boyd four catches thirty, three yards I mean they did a really good job in this one of. Really limiting the entire offense. Yeah. They they play bend but don't break defense, which can be really frustrating because as you saw the end of this game, the bengals almost came down and not only gotten position to kick a game tying field goal but they literally almost scored to win the whole thing and I don't think that should ever happen. But when you're smart like the offensive coordinator for the Bengals, which I believe is head coach Derek Taylor you play the kind of offense that you take what you get short curls little crossing out routes like. It was way too easy for the chargers to or at least the bangles to March downfield in the charges needed to make it a lot harder on them. Defensively Germain Pratt linebacker led the team in tackles twelve. Sacks from Josh binds and I want to say Carl Lawson. So just two sacks on tyrod Taylor, which isn't again the end of the world with offense of line that could be better was missing to starters. But overall I thought the offensive line for the chargers actually did a really, really really good job. I actually got to give them props on on the watch through again, Sam heavy, not nearly as bad as you would expect him to look Brian Balogh obviously big free agent signing did an excellent job and pass protection as well.

Check it out. It's sports betting dime DOT com. But let's just look at the overall game. Sixteen to thirteen like I said, charges barely got away in this one, the offense was. For lack of a better word tough to watch. And I say that because there was a lot of hype around tyrod Taylor right I mean I'll be honest and say that I was kind of a part of it I call them Tigon Taylor I was really excited for what he could do. I thought he was good in buffalo good enough in with such a much more talented weapon set. Skill. Players around him. It's the best he's ever had. And this offense looked every bit of a team that didn't have any preseason reps against other teams looked jumbled at times. When it came to like the zone read runs, which is a new wrinkle brought in because they have tyrod Taylor and other mobile quarterbacks. They looked jumbled like most teams who do those zone reads like with Mar- with Cam Newton cuyler Murray. Those of lines just know how to do it a bit better and obviously. This is a first time thing for some of these charges offensive Lineman, right? Like they've never done it before they've never had to Philip. Rivers. Behind them. But it just looked not too good and then one of the biggest things anything when talked about in his post-game chat with a team, we got a little bit of a video of it on the charter social media but he's basically saying that I'll be damned if we get stopped on fourth in short near the goal line or just in general again twice in a game, right? Like he this is a guy that. If you remember rookie season his rookie season with a team first year with the being the head coach of the chargers where he flexed at his team. showed him the double guns and basically told him to man up and getting the damn end zone. And I don't think they did at that time maybe they did I'm thinking of a different game. The point is analyst guy where it's fourth and shore fourth and inches doesn't matter. I don't care. He doesn't care. He wants his team to get the Dan yards qb sneak halfback dive care. If the defense knows it's coming be able to get the damn yards you need to extend the drive to score the touchdown to essentially finish out these games and that's one of the things Lynn pressed on a lot in the locker room after the game was closed out the damn game if we have a shot to close out the game. It's as simple as that. I know, and honestly it's probably harder said than done. This is the national football league I get it. But again, these are all professional athletes who are paid millions of dollars to do this occasionally just get the damn yards. And hopefully, they can show a little bit more of that against the chiefs. We'll see if they pouncey back we'll see if they get turner back think term probably more likely to return. In this one. Will see about pouncey man that's a hip injury. Those something's been bothering him since Miami he played All Sixteen Games and twenty eighteen, he played mostly games last year, and he probably would've played all the games if he didn't have the neck injury. So for these hip problems to comeback up at least you know the way they are this year two years removed from Miami. That's really tough look, but we can only hope for the best in hope starting tomorrow and through the week we see him participating bit more in practice, but the time will tell on that one. I'm going to have my surgeon static search or static pardon me article up here soon where I basically discussed weekly thing I do after the game I name two or three players that I think with their play surged forward I. Guess these are electrical ponds where the charters obviously Sumi. So play that. Made them deal the improved on their play they searched forward right or guys who stayed static so whether they. Didn't do anything to impress or if anything they went backwards right static or went backwards with they're play against the bengals. I will have the up later today Again guys victory. Monday I really can't complain a win is a win you take them you take them how you can get them as tyrod Taylor said after the game as he was running back to the locker room, I mean W W and I honestly couldn't be more stat to start the season with w a fun fact that I saw today on good morning football this. At showed the worst win percentages fourteen since the start to the nineteen games and one possession games and the chargers are nine in one possession game since the start of twenty nineteen and what's crazy about that is that means that included last yesterday's win and so they were two nine prior to winning yesterday at Cincinnati in one possession game since the start of last season. That is something I don't want to see I, mean, that was the big difference right in twenty nineteen between them being a pretty good team and five and eleven team, and this is something that the charges have been dealing with sense. The Mike McCoy days. If you look at Mike McCoy's record in one score games, it was absolutely and utterly horrendous. I don't really WANNA ever go back to that. I would like to be a team that can close out the the the close ones more often than not I would like this team to be. Maybe a squad that can win by double digits against some of the worst teams in the league I know the Bengals were a little underrated but against maybe the Jaguars and some teams like that. Maybe win by a couple more points than just three, four, five, six, seven. That would be absolutely wonderful. But. Time will tell with this they're going to they're going to work on a ton of things is Anthony Lynn said, they have so much to improve on and they're going to have to improve on quite a few things by a lot if they're gonNA WANNA run with this Kansas City chiefs team next. Sunday and it's also going to be their first game in so FI stadium. So I would like them to at least play somewhat competitively against this team that quaveringly May. Run the gambit or close to it because they looked almost unstoppable especially with their new rookie running back. Clyde Edwards Allaire. But that's going to be for the podcast later this week before we get into that too much. And last but not least, we have to touch on the Ju- tranquil injury probably should've touched on it earlier in the podcast, but apparently, I've already repressed it so far my mind didn't even come to to me before you know we're fourteen fifteen sixteen minutes into this podcast. Five plays into the game against the bengals. Ju- tranquil went down with what looks to be a broken ankle I. Think was confirmed it was broken ankle and. It was just tough. Man Five plays into the first game. A couple of plays before he had just. Made a good stop on a flat route to a running back while he was still engaged the blocker like he made a good play, I think he made another one early on. And then what ended up happening guys in see it or haven't really gone back to to replay it and I'm sure you don't want to. But he was strafing to his left because they were setting up a screen pass. Borough through it to the running back on his right side, and essentially what happened was right before he was going to engage with the offensive Lineman as lead blocker. He slipped and you saw his foot tweak you know out to the side where you know you normally expect a roll ankle to look like and then the offensive lineman flattened tranquil of course he did. So it did not look good and start to finish it didn't look great whatsoever. They ended up bringing the car I'll throw them in and Eric cast put on the car he was hiding tears and it was the look of someone who obviously knows he's not coming back anytime soon. So five plays into the first game of the year they lost another starting defender on this defense. So make. James and now drew tranquil who will likely be out for the rest of the season in his place. Nick vigil was the starter. I thought vigil did a pretty good job. I would like him to be a little more assertive at the point of attack where instead of wrapping up Joe Mixon for a one yard gain. Or like no, that's what I want him to do. He's we wrap Joe Mixing up for a one yard gain and not let him drag you four or five more yards for much bigger run than than needed at that point. Having a couple of times he's not going to be like a run defending linebacker. He's more of a weeks back tranquil was I just think tranquil was a little bit better in the run game but nick vigils going to be just as athletic side to side. I think he's going to be just fine if he continues to kind of get that snap load or maybe they put kaiser white or Denzel Perryman there I'm not entirely sure but. chargeable figure it out. It's such a bad loss. We were all rooting for tranquil all off season. We all knew he was going to take a step forward be one of the best defenders on this team and what rotten luck five snaps into this game. Just tough tough all the way around. But on that unfortunate negative note, that is the end of this episode. Guys really hope you enjoyed it. I will be back later this week for my preview of the chiefs game. where I will go over everything, you need to know prior to that match up and give you my honest opinion on whether or not.

"The interruption but I'm Mike Wilbon in Los Angeles for the start of the NBA season. I'm Tony Kornheiser in Houston the start of the world series no we know you're not when is the last time you were in Houston what are you doing. They're going to sing the anthem close quote Tony Are we done now with all the preseason dramatic nonsense people thought they since between matlock floor and Aaron Rodgers I'll read you the whole quote I feel like this has been other than either or both is the green bay packers particularly when Aaron Rodgers is in vintage form and what might be his most prolific day patriots and Seahawks in succession and they could be they could be four and seven at that point and you wonder what has happened to them you wonder Dr Cheesehead threw five touchdown passes ran for a sixth as packers lit off the raiders in Green Bay Rogers said afterward I feel like this has been come in Lamar Jackson outdoors Russell Wilson and Kirk cousins is on a roll but we begin today with the Dallas Cowboys Ruining Doug Peterson guarantee a victory and slamming the Eagles thirty-seven at ten twenty one of those points Philadelphia turnovers wilpon which is the bigger story the cowboys appearing to right their ship because they had a tomato can in the ring with him last night I'll give you one statistic on Carson Wentz in the last two seasons in the games that he has started I noticed in that particular game a lot of times with quarterbacks the pocket collapses and maybe they run like Lamar Jackson and they gain a bunch of yards or maybe we don't know because the eagles stunk right starting with their head coach running his mouth you know it's one thing for players particularly Mao the defensive backs back I'm going to praise the cowboys a little bit in this regard thank God this week we're not going to have to hear about firing Jason Garrett because knowing the cowboys do that well even or the eagles getting pasted well since I don't know if the cowboys righted their ship or not is the eagles getting pasted this is about the eagles I mean the cowboys might have been fine coming you read I feel like we've been building I know I've been feeling a lot more comfortable and Matt has been more comfortable as far as knowing when to be aggressive and knowing when to pull back it does he the triumph makeup reception the eagles were an embarrassment I'm tired of hearing about how Great Carson Wentz is get them Outta here I can't praise the cowboys yet add Prescott with a quarterback rating of one hundred I agree with you that I don't know what this means going forward but going forward for the Eagles Mike here's a schedule problem they've fallen they can't get up not not right now anyway looks out what the COP was. An Eagles may be the subject of more chatter today but a team in the NFC who's much Jason Garrett is GonNa get a little bit of praise when you gotTa Zeke you'll Elliott carrying a twenty two times rolling for five yards at a clip and a touchdown and you got away from immediately which sends a signal to his team that he really doesn't believe in the junk he's saying and then they played so badly the players the I or back and forth he he doesn't seem to feel the pressure then boom foot and it is a touchdown he he still to just say crazy stuff during the week how many times have you hear a coach in the regular season a head coach guarantee victory then he started to back Pedal Eagles were dogs last night they don't say this often Tony they they looked like they lacked heart there's a play Lady Game Aguilar doesn't even want to stretch his arms out makes a lot of money the eagles are eight and ten in those games the eagles have now lost two robot total of forty five points that's seventy five to thirty that's a lot everything you said is ears but here's the thing in order to do that and the offense to function the way it needs to others the others function where they need to they had the has the ability to sense when he can stand in the pocket even when there's no pocket yes tony everything you describe what he's been doing for more than ten Ah Buffalo Buffalo's five in one team with a good defense then they get the bears toy gonNA destroy them later in this show but then they have the to do cover the game yeah how about that fair attic boys and girls in today's episode the passes clicking for their lives like Matthew Stafford and just try to throw it down the field out of bounds so that they don't take a loss in Rogers just goes side to saw Seattle in the rain where the Baltimore Ravens beat the seahawks thirty two sixteen Lamar Jackson Outplayed Russell Wilson. His passing numbers were not great but Jackson. You might have gotten the two best quarterbacks but you're going to get the best quarterback coming out yesterday which is Aaron Rodgers in that game right yep for me one of the Best Games yesterday was ran for one hundred sixteen yards and critical touchdown we'll Russell Wilson was the front runner for MVP about thirty six hours ago would you now put Jackson up there you're that out and I mean by Aaron Rodgers and Matt Leflore Yeah well it seems they have y'all seems they've gotten the offense the others the others to do the things that we just talked about Aaron Rodgers having probably his most prolific day. I mean there's a guy named Tom Brady whose team is still undefeated I know on the strength of defense to to what they've got coming up because they're out Kansas City next Sunday night Andy Reid is said it is a stretch to believe that Patrick Mahomes will play in that game so throw he does it and Tony if he's comfortable doing that then the Green Bay packers are right there with the San Francisco Forty niners as the best team in the NFC so let me get with him no it was kinda crazy to try to have Russell Wilson up there we don't know what Patrick Mahomes if he's GonNa Miss Too much time you know the series be considered for be in the places they need to be for Aaron Rodgers when he looks up on the wrong because he's not looking to stick it in the end zone like Lamar Jackson you mentioned he's looking to complete a downfield there's a lot of guys out there to running back in Charlotte that kid is having a Christian McCaffrey McCaffrey is so no I don't need to make three as a starter I mean but let me ask you this Seattle was a team as was Baltimore built on defense how can you let whole time it wouldn't matter this guys that good on his feet he is Fred astaire and Bo Jackson in concert and so that astle that the greatest outlier of the whole season will be when Cleveland Pounded Baltimore in Baltimore Forty twenty-five venture pause and our let's go back to the NFC central I'm never calling the North get Outta here the saints would industry the season is fickle you're one game I watched all day on this network people saying oh the cowboys they're back right back he lost three when Flaco got hurt he was so good that John Harbaugh said we're go we're gonNA Trade Joe Flacco right now I believe let me get the number he's eleven weeks ago had another monster game to beat Detroit you whipping boy threw for three hundred thirty seven yards four. TD's Tony Teddy Bridgewater continue events mindy he had to do with Phelan and Stefan digs he must have done that Mike in Three Games he's got ten touchdowns in one pick and nine hundred seventy doesn't it it gives you a little pause little bit we don't we don't you know what Tony this need to now talk about the NFL great declared terms every week can we just watched the reason Lamar Jackson was great yesterday God he well he might be great again next week to and they had an interception that looked like had read there was Marcus Peters just got traded auto and just pillaged the bears for fifth straight victory without drew brees meanwhile kirk cousins who appear to be buried under avalanche of criticism just all the one one they're back so I don't want to proclaim I love watching him I love watching Lamar Jackson and I know you do too I do he was so good the low number of carries rushing carries in the history of the bears. Okay Greg Grange would have that in a series Matt Nagy couldn't find his role even without Alvin Kamara and starting tight end jared cook so which one of those wins did you find more impressive so I know that you're going to cam the bears and I'm going to get out of the way to do that in all honesty I found the Minnesota one a little bit more impressive because of because this is three games in a row whatever six yards passing that's really good before you launch I just want to give you a quote from your boy Matt Nagy said because apparently I didn't realize this the bears ran seven Wilbad I think he is an idiot go you know Tony it's really embarrassing when a guy comes home and Sean Payton is from Chicago Peter Scotto Sean Payton came home and just turn Matt Nagy over his knee and banged his bottom yeah in the middle soldier field seven carries you know Jackson MVP SERIES MVP candidate because if he has a bad game next week people will be saying Oh wow we should maybe have joe FLACCO back people are fickle confronting the greatest defense of all time say the same thing about Matt negative bears embarrassment the most import victory was still New Orleans without his hall of Fame Corona Extra Geico Presents Monster Counseling Dracula tell me how you're feeling no understands how known these no one will even if you don't see yourself clearly can you really expect others to I'm having a breakthrough it's not easy to be a vampire but with gyco it's super easy to switch and save were seven carries out of a quarterback who should never in his life throw for fifty he had a bye week here injured quarterback and he couldn't figure how to run the ball his defense is now in tatters because you know what his defense they understand that they've got no quarterback and they got no offense on that team and he's the coach of the team he can call more runs anytime he wants yeah and so and I just say this the work of Teddy Bridgewater and Jacoby Brusett under in times and past fifty four times your podcast this morning I don't really listen that early in the morning here's the quote I know we need to run the ball more or not an idiot you just say it's only the only Michael Vick one fourteen lot your defensive guys shouldn't you have somebody spying bears are in big trouble and their head coach these to look at himself I was glad to hear Rex Ryan former head coach and lineage bear by family by by virtue of order back run for a hundred sit and let 'em yards rape okay because he's run from more hundred yard games in thirteen or fourteen whatever many the games are abnormally bad conditions has been wonderful all year was terrific yesterday give in to their leading division and Andrew Luck retired would you please weeks what is your reaction to this bombshell it is bombshell Tony and it's just it's it's not tragic six to eight weeks okay but it's a doubt see what's First Ealier Zion Williamson today had surgery to correct a torn meniscus in his right knee he will miss six to eight I hope it comes and goes do you see the Astros as clear favorites in the world series no I don't see him as a clear thing I don't care about Vegas that's your thing hundreds on your car insurance a male time exporting answers to ordinary questions let me been great let us take one more week coming up the Astros and the clear favorites for the world series put should they be and how should the giants feel about their new quarterback without its star running back and without too tight in going to soldier field and win the answer is the same so i WanNa give two points here one if I see the OP- The opponent the Washington nationals with four aces right now four guys they can walk there and yes it starts with Max Scherzer good you don't WanNa make eminem candidate right now no I don't need to make an MVP candidate 'cause he might not be able to do the next two or three seem odd when this season is over it is out and you wonder what is his long term health what is Tony Listen Bizarre Fluke and not a sort of a forecast for future situations me into their house I knock knock but ignoring me what else I look in the mirror I don't even see myself anymore space and pace and whether it makes sense at that size it's just it's a downer I don't think you can do anything with this story except comment on his size weekend would you try to rush breeze back whenever brees is physically ready this week he plays if he's physically ready but bridge me who remembers Derrick rose I mean there was little later wasn't first year in his career but he had a knee injury just changed his career and sort of the skit now you've got two hundred eighty pound guys exile out on the perimeter running cutting I don't know that their bodies in their knees and feet were made for that and we're gonNA find out about race two hundred and eighty pounds and he jumps higher straight up than David Thomson did so when he lands he lands with unbelievable force that has to be act eight times obviously the SAX and not really on him it's on a leaky offense of line and you see the cardinals getting after him yesterday Tony but I mean look I would still draft him but they got four aces and anytime you have starting pitching like that and a bull pin that is not the nightmare that it was for you all summer it has not been that her to come on the eve of the start of the NBA season which does beginning tomorrow and we're all looking forward to seeing on in in the pros let's face it but for somebody like well they should stop making proclamations I don't mean the giants everybody else does this and he's got to have a nickname and all his stupid junk he had four turnovers rookie four to bat Mr Dines she we expect to see were set for bridgewater we didn't in August we did not have any interruption is brought to you by org by his legs I mean everybody wants to see him he's the first guy since Lebron that everybody everybody is jacked up Aston Days and you know it so behave you gotta you got four aces nobody is a big favourite over a team with that kind of starting pitching in about the timeframe that he was operating under so I I hope this is accurate hope he comes back quickly I want to see all these teams you know with full strength but I'm not gonNA say the data this franchise and you look at these injuries when you weigh that much two hundred eighty five pounds and what was about to seventy five in the old days those guys operated in a small space around the one ninety three the astros hit they pitch they run they feel they are a clear that does not mean that they're going to win I think that the story of the thank you but I never heard of Daniel Jones is a pretty good quarterback even yesterday when he couldn't hold onto the ball to two hundred twenty three yards and a touchdown whereas I'd take him a head of the guy who's playing quarterback on my team right now we'll take Danny dimes over that but let's have a little sensibility about running out and blaze Arkansas get out of here not female. Let's take one last break with Sylvan calm the panthers decide whether Kyle Allen needs to make way for Cam Newton Murray who we think is a pretty good quarterback two hundred four yards and no touchdowns I think Kyla Murray and Cliff Kingsbury pretty good they got three wins in a row they have three wins out they think about twenty days so that's three weeks with a high ankle sprain surgery he had this procedure on the other ankle last year and was the worst major college play I've ever seen in my life if two is healthy for Lsu they're back in it if he's not the ever no and Jessop set the cowboys last week and they do something similar against the Patriots but let me there will be no hell no no we know it the Astros are the best team in baseball over the last three years their cumulative wins is higher than anybody's in baseball they one hundred seven games this year the nationals and saw this is a fake punt by Arkansas in which the punter uses

NFL Week 2 Starts & Sits Episode 033

"Welcome to the fantasy football overtime podcast. I'm your host Jake's Isky with me as always are Tyler Hollerbach and Matt Win. Week one is behind us week to is on the horizon. No rest for the wicked were jumping right on into it today as a start sit episode jumping right on guys Thursday night Football Cincinnati Bengals at the Cleveland Browns Whoa what a barn burner of a game double double B. is it's Adam pretty excited for this like I I. Don't know why but I actually like like this I. Don't know they're just fun by stuff you wouldn't expect. So I'm excited for this game I am too. It should be a good game. In terms of football, I guess, maybe in terms of fantasy, but some of the starts for us this week I have Nick Chubb in Kareem Hunt from Cleveland I think you have to start both the running backs and I. Have Joe Nixon for Cincinnati, or you is out with those three from us starts missing anyone in your opinion would you remove any of those three? I think you have to keep all three of them and for myself I have to start Aj green you went five for fifty one week one is getting the volume. He's still healthy I gotta agree tyler. Got Ad Age. Agreeing to the mix. But yes, I agree with the children and the hunt and the full of course mixed and starts yeah. For me I got AJ Green as amid start but he's not far off a must start. Cleveland is absolutely terrible. I'm just a little worried about Joe Borough and prime time on the road for the first time in his career I. Don't know what we can expect data out, of job, earl and Jake Green but I definitely don't blame you if you have a degree in your life can't get much worse than week one job, Earl. You could tell he's a rookie, but it's all right. Joe We we still love you. So it's crazy how those jeters. one rookie quarterback versus we won wide receiver back. Yeah. I think you'll boroughs going to be just fine. It's just might be a matter of time but we'll see what happens I think if if you're going to go on the road and Primetime Cleveland is about as good of a test as you can get. So I think he's going to be just fine but we'll see what happens. I name that I noticed that you didn't say was What else Beckham Jr do you have him this week I got Odell and Jarvis Landry is. My mid starts, and it really just comes down to Baker Mayfield I mean Odell did have ten targets. He also drew to defensive pass interferences. He had the defenders beat and they they dragged him down. So I'm really not worried about I. think he's going to be solid again, this year I just man I hate starting Thursday night players unless I'm really really competent in and I don't know if I'm that confident in Odell or not. Yeah. I'm in the same boat like Mike could starts but probably GONNA ban are Odell, Landry Mayfield and hooper yeah. Oh del Charleston and Boyd on the same boat of like if you got him, you probably drafted him to start home but you don't feel good about it. Arnaud Week One. Baker. Looked off and if that's how he's going to be all season and Odell through no fault of his own is going to be terrible. So you're starting them you don't feel great about it. That's kind of where I am like you're you're more than likely starting Odell unless you have really really good options. One of my leagues I have deandre Hopkins Calvin Ridley and AJ Brown. So I probably. Will not be starting Odell just because I can't really put him in over one of those three But if you don't have the luxury of having a lot of other big name, wide receivers, then you probably have to start Oh, down I mean he could definitely have a huge week. So get on your lineup. That's perfectly fine. My sits for the week I got Baker Mayfield. Joe Borough Austin Hooper like you said, my other main set of the weakest Tyler Boyd he had four receptions on five targets for thirty three yards in week one but going back to the Joe Borough in Primetime on the road, his first road game of his NFL career I'm already not super big on having Aj Green in there. But he I don't think can be able to support to wide receivers this week. Yeah. I'm sitting void as well. Especially, this game is very low scoring only over under a forty four points in that prime time game. I'm not going to take a risk on somebody like Boyd Molly. Defense on maybe starring Boyd, the browns are bought butter on all tied receivers and boy does play the slot. So I think that he could have. That opportunity but it is joe borough prime time we don't know what's going to happen. So I fully would not blame anyone for sitting him with the News of David Nwachukwu going on the IRR in missing the next three weeks. Does that bump up Austin Hooper slightly for you guys? I. Mean. In the sense of like him moving up from tight end twenty tied in nineteen. Sure. But I was never high and hope for so I. Still Sitting over, let's move onto the Jacksonville Jaguars vs Tennessee titans my Ma starts are DJ, Shar Derrick, Henry Aj Brown and John News. House waiting for John Season for holiday season I agree with all of those I have digit shark. Derrick Henry. In Asia Brown is must start probably will be in that category almost every single week this year I don't have John Lewis must start got him as a mid start but I'm I mean if if you draft Giannini's you're only tight end that's perfectly fine and even if he's not, he could go off against Jacksonville at home. So Jonah, Smith could have a big week I'm I'm fully supportive starting Johnny Smith I have a lot of Darwin Johnny Smith Roster. So Johnny stuff starter for me and a lot of those. Obviously with not having a backup. So yes, you can start. Johnny. Smith could start or like mid start got your quarterback men shoot Tannahill and James Robinson is about all I'm on the fence on there if I have to play them but that's where I met with those guys. How about you guys I got the same players James Robinson Seventeen touches for. Ninety yards in week one. So that was pretty reassuring. I'm not sure if I really like him on the road against a pretty stout titans defense but Menchu showed a lot of promise jake that's your. That's your guy hundred, seventy, three yards, three touchdowns. But what might have been most impressive was nineteen of twenty. Here's a ninety five percent completion percentage last week. Garner meant you had he is legit like I'm just I've been telling people that it's like he's he's legit and we'll those there's just a little little tip of the iceberg. We'll see the rest of the season brings us here with the men's shoe mania. It's tough when he only throw twenty passes though I think that might be season low for. Because I don't think they'll be went in too many games. Hopefully, this isn't the scenario for too many people but if you have both men's shoe and Tannahill, which one are you guys starting this week tannehill probably Tina Hill titans defenses is like I don't want to take anything away from them. So probably Tannehill as far as for the sets like the biggest one that might come into play like Chris Thomson, he's probably my waiver. My Waiver get rid of them Kinda Guy if I'm picking up somebody in have Chris Thompson nominating I completely agree had zero Carey's zero carries last week and he had two receptions for six yards. It was all James Robinson I was really surprised by that actually and it might be overreacting but I'm okay overreacting if he does have somewhat of a impact yeah for Chris Thompson was overreacting as well I'm not starting him either so for it. I'm perfectly fine being wrong on Chris. Thompson exactly what it is like he's just a guy like it's eight. If I'm wrong, he's below a guy yeah. I got. Cut I think. All Right Panthers at the Buccaneers, a lot of Muss starts in this game for me. Yes. Same here, McCaffrey More Godwin Brady Evans I think are almost start. Roggio. I. Think also a a must start candidate against that terrible Carolina defense. This might be the one of the few Ma starts for roggio against Carolina I'm GonNa Attack Carolina as much as I can this year. Yeah. especially with Leonard Fournette Kennedy again eased into the role you only had six carries and week one. So I'm sure he'll get a couple here this. Week as well but I have a feeling that they will probably run the ball at thirty four times. So yes, play Roggio yeah, I got all six of those you must start says, well, we're we're spot on here. We're aligned Mike Evans I mean you're you're starting him because you drafted him in around two or three, but he only had one catch for two yard touchdown saved his fantasy day. He's going to be boomer bust all year. So you'RE GONNA have to deal with it but don't be surprised when he when. He boss, but you're obviously starting Mike Evans if you have them. Yeah. This is the match up the you are salivating for though if you have Mike Evans like this, his week did boom here for you for me my mid-range starts or Teddy Bridgewater Robbie Anderson Curtis Samuel, and Rob Gronkowski if you need to start any of them, you certainly can Robbie Anderson just had a huge week but that Tampa Bay box t looked for real and in week one. So we'll see kind of kind of how that plays out I. Would definitely prefer not to start any of those four though if it's me, I'm sitting Samuel Anderson I don't WanNa touch either one of 'em against this D-. Yeah. I don't want to start any of them. Now what they did to drew brees like they made your breeze like Babb. So I don't want to target this defense a player we haven't mentioned yet, Lenny? Leonard Fournette. I got him as a sit this week. I'm not starting on not touching them even against a terrible poorest Carolina Panthers run Defense Roggio Show Yeah. He's tough. He's a he's one of those. If you're in a really deep league and you need like a flex option like you love bell and Leonard Fournette I would you know obviously with bell being out by like he's okay person to throw in their in their replacement situation but don't do it with confidence I'll ride moving onto game number three, four, three or four, four Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh steelers who you got starting tyler this game of course, connor dependent on the injury from Monday night we're still recording Monday night here watching the game i. don't like that Ankle Injury Jews looking good big Ben dependent on his knee, and that's kind of where I'm at. On start, only other must have I. Agree with all those is Melvin Gordon again with based off of where you drafted him that Pittsburgh steelers defense is legit though I wouldn't expect huge things Melvin Gordon but I especially in the year with all these injuries to running backs already I don't see there being any way I can get myself to sit Melvin Gordon. Even in tough match-up, they definitely are tough tough match-up shutting down saquon Barkley here so It's a if you start. Gordon Temper expectations for sure. What about Sautin? AC, in scares me, you got monitor IT I. Don't even know guarantee is GonNa play at this point like you know this is early. So the injury report is not fully out. So we don't know what his status is, but the monitor it, and this is not a game that I'd feel confident starting him. You know if I'm deep receiver, he's a sit for me but if I'm if I'm needing West y'all if I got a lot of injuries hit me I got gotta play them but I don't feel good about it. So I think there's kind of a lot of them here. That are a lot of people will start in Leagues James Washington Deontay Johnson Jerry Judy Noah Fan Philip, Lindsay out Tim Patrick to you've got to kind of look at if Sutton's would again a out I should say but yeah, it's a lot of mid tier guys. In this game I got all the same guys as my mid starts, I. Really don't WanNa, start any of them except for Noah Fan I'm perfectly fine starting him but yeah, that Pittsburgh defenses for real. So hamper expectations if you're starting any broncos this week in a fans only Titan obviously it's There's no sense in. The waiver wire for somebody else hundred percent don't pick somebody up to not start fan. But if have a better option than, of course, you're good to go rams and Eagles I'll start with this one. My must starts are Robert Woods and Cooper. Cup and that's Goddard I'm not going to say that Dallas is a must start I am personally going to start him. He had a monster week last week for me the starts and a half to play a Robert Woods and Cooper Cup and the main reason why is if if I have? Dallas Qatar, I also have another big tight end. He's not my only tighten MRI? Honestly Starting Dallas Qatar over Zach Ertz this week and I wouldn't be surprised if that's the case more often than not in twenty twenty. ooh, like a little bold take a week to there I. don't even know if it's at bold anymore, but it is for now. Mid Starts I have jared Goff. I really want nothing to do with him Tyler Higby camakers Malcolm Brown who had a Monster Week one Boston Scott Carson Wentz into Sean Jackson a lot of names in there. A lot of players that could do something a lot of players that could bust are you guys high on any of those names that I just listed i? Think you only one you got to add to that as mile sanders because again, the injury he could still play week to they've been talking about it. If he plays week to, you can put them as could start because I wouldn't start hitting with confidence. Yeah. Hundred percent if Mile Sanders is healthier, you're absolutely. Playing him for me like D Sean Jackson adding a lot of people are gonNA lose faith in them but still have him as an option for yourself to sean is a perfectly good waiver wire earner wave where be up by week wide receiver to stash at the end of your band if you can. So yeah, keep to Sean if possible let's go to San Francisco forty. Niners and the New York jets. Renaissance Snooze Fest to me what do you think I have to must starts I have three I got three I'm sure there's similar. I have remorse and George kibble and crowder citizen baby the I gotTa Jamison crowder. How do you not have crowder as a muster because? He's there only receiving option but just because you're the only option doesn't mean you're actually able to catch the ball because San? Francisco. Is Good I mean they got towards by Deandre, Hopkins? Like let's not compare horse. Let's compare deandre Hopkins Jamison crowder. So that's why he's not a must start for me. He's a very strong could start like there are much worse options you could have, but he's just not a must start in my eyes. Yeah. Is it must Start for me, but my fear is going to be similar to Washington with like scary Terry Week one concentrated on him didn't do anything defenses they're gonNA be able to hone in on crowder as that's the only option and then herndon down if you watch the defense line line for the San Francisco forty. niners like they were in the backfield immediately and Sam Darnold is nowhere near Collar Murray I wonder if he's GonNa, see ghosts again this year he might. Yeah crowder at thirteen targets. He's GonNa see even more than thirteen targets in this one because San Frans- going to get an early lead, they're going to be throwing all game and then looking at the San Francisco Forty niners here moster at one of the most impressive things I thought from week one, ninety, five receiving yards through the air roaster doesn't do that four catches, ninety, five yards and A touchdown one of it was like a seventy six yarder. So take it for a grain of salt, but the fact that he's breaking off long touchdowns this early in the season is extremely exciting to see. Do you think that has anything to do with kid gang banged up and no other receiving options there? Well, his catch came right away and the game. So that breakaway crows one touchdown. One. Wasn't because the killer anything but actually the person I want to monitor the most famous jerk McCain and I was really impressed with the way they used him now granted I think that had to do with Kevin Coleman and his sickle cell disease with the bad air quality I don't think they wanted to play them for his own safety bought McKinnon look good healthy. So that's the guy. That I'm watching in this game. Yeah. I think that's fair. He looked good. We'll see coleman even plays the other sits that I have for this week I had left bell as a set before he was even announced as as injured. I'm so down on him and then brandon can Kendrick born and Kevin Coleman I'm sitting all of them no matter what not in any of those guys. I'm not starting any jets besides crowder. All right. Let's move onto the buffalo bills and the Miami Dolphins Tyler what he got from us starts must starts for me Stefan Digs Josh Allen Preston. Williams might be close monitoring Parker probably, GonNa. Stand Pat at Josh Allen Stefan Digs. Yeah. I think Parker is going to be officially ruled out here shortly with a hamstring injury, they were talking about probably a multi week injury for that as well. So pressing Williams moves. Into for me, it could start because he's going to get your Davis White if Devante is officially ruled out and that's GonNa be a tough match up especially for you know a basically a rookie 'cause he only got about half a game in. So I'm not as high on Presser Williams this week because a tremendous way but I the running back for the bills in this game I think you can start both of them. I'm really high in the running backs. Big. Fan Zach. Moss, I got him in numerous leagues this year he didn't do much in week one, but he did find the end zone. So that's extremely good to see for week one for your your running back but I think the bills are going to absolutely steam the Miami Dolphins this week. So I sing Terry An mosque and find the end zone but I'm higher. On. Moss and single Terry neither one is Ma. Start for me watching one both of them only having nine touches don't like uh split like that Moss did get the goal line work, which is great moves into a good start terry not a fan with that split. You know who might see an uptick in targets this week with the devante Parker Injuries Mica Seki would hope. Could be in for a big. We could start. John Brown Jordan Howard Preston. Williams Miles Gaskin. Rusher in Miami Tyler how do you feel about that? Yeah Jordan Howard definitely panicked on there but I'm gonNA still give it a week or two and he's not one that was you know even starting you got them in the eighth ninth round. Yeah. For sure no one expected miles gaskin my guests can I'm really worried about Jordan Howard and it's the fact that he doesn't catch many passes so he needs to be elite on the ground and when you're in the single digit rushing yards, and now you're going up against the Buffalo. Bills. Stout defence. I'm I'm hitting the panic button on Jordan Howard right now next up Minnesota, Vikings Indianapolis Colts Must Start Dalvand Cook Adam Feeling Jonathan Taylor Paris Campbell for me. I would add to heat. Naim hines to that too. I think that he is a start here against. Heinz back here with Ya. Last episode START I can't say anything I had so many comments that I wanted to make jake today but he apologized and just said I was right I appreciate it I can't say anything took all the wind out of your sales so squeak welcome to the team Naim hines but yeah I would also have Heinz in there and I think if we're gonNA Paris Campbell and there we almost kind of have to have Hilton there don't we? Watching week one he was not good. He did not pass the US but I think in the sense of like what you're saying you drive to t y you probably start ty there's a lot worse matchups we saw what happened last week. Yeah that probably starts you. I had T Y and Campbell on the same team I would start Campbell over t y I might start the waterboy if I could against US defense after last week. So. Yeah. All those players that you just listed. I'm absolutely starting the only mid start that I really had. I was pretty like I'm either GonNa Start this player or I'm not only mid in exception to that was jack doyle kind of torn on on what I feel about. Jack. Doyle this week he's on a lot of waiver wires. If you're streaming tight ends, you know you didn't if you only drafted jar win, you've got injured doyle is not A. Bad option on that waiver wire one, hundred percent in agreement there everyone else is pretty much a hail. Mary start at that point like DC Johnson. He was good only because the vikings were down. So quick like Jack Doyle's to one that I would look at as well and then I'm sitting Justin Jefferson Alexander Madison Irv Smith Junior Kyle. Rudolph BC Johnson and Michael Pittman Junior. Yeah. Those are all just Hail Mary I'm absolutely screwed I need something from somebody magic. All right. Let's stick with the NFC north. Detroit Lions at Green. Bay. Packers who are must start devante. Now, I'm not going to start him. You're not. Give them operate. Yeah. He's a week break on. Must Davante Adams Golladay if he's healthy Aaron Jones Stafford, may I've not buying into the Rogers I. Think It was a one week fluke. But if you have and don't have another quarterback, I'd have to start them I don't think you can sit them I mean if you have another star quarterback sure. But look what he just did to Minnesota and then he plays the Detroit lions in Green Bay. He's going to have a monster week again I think I hate. To say this, but INC Rogers does it again Detroit actually had to corners get injured as well that went down and Jeff Okuda. Their topic didn't even play week one. So if they're running into issues in the secondary week to Rogers Ism Start for me, and then if Kennedy gala out, Marvin, Jones must start as well for me my mid range starts of the week in this game are Matt Stafford De'andre Swift, Adrian? Peterson Marvin Jones TJ Hopkinson a lot lizard ELM lazard. vs I think that's every offensive player. It pretty much is there are all kinds of mid range starts the the one player that you might have noticed. I didn't say that would any form of fantasy relevant says, Carrie Johnson seven carries fourteen yards, zero targets. He's not getting the red zone or the goal line work. I think it's officially safe cut. Kerryon Johnson from your fantasy football teams. What if you have on the bench didn't he have like nine targets yet ten ten yeah. That's only if gal out though yeah. If gallaudet plays CFS can take a seat on the bench. What are we think of swift dropping the game winning touchdown pass that might hurt the move him down to sit just from. A coaching aspect he might not get you can look at it. One of two ways, the trust him and like him so much that they're willing to put the game on the line or you can look at the negative way dropped the game winning pass now they hate him. So it's a rookie, his first game you just went undrafted him early like. You can't give up on them after one drop especially when he had a touchdown earlier in the game I, think they go right back to them and try to build his confidence, but there is no doubt about it. He was deflated after that he lost the game for him. Yes he did I'm just saying you seem touches decrease on less just for. For a fumble. So absolutely, no I still have confidence in him. I mean the only running back as Adrian Peterson. He's thirty five years old had quite the game though he did AP looks young I love it. I love seeing success but I hate seeing it in the lines It's hard. It's weird. Barry Sanders almost kind of except for. One hundred pounds of more muscle. Sorry shifty anymore. Yeah. All right. Next game on the slade pretty sure issue to start them all just click auto start Atlanta Falcons and Dallas. Put them all in the lineup literally start ball except for movie Dalton Scholtz don't start him over under on. This is only fifty two I'm guessing it's GonNa hit about sixty five seventy. But from US starts, of course, Julio Ridley Zeke Dak Maddie Ace Todd Gurley. Maybe lamb now journo. Yeah. Even might metering starts high like I agree with all the players you just said, and then Michael Gallup CD lamb hidden hurts Russell gauge like if you have to play any of them, they all hit bear literally all. The only one that I would probably have eighty second that's starting would be Russell Gauge, but I am starting wrestle. It's going to be a high scoring game get him in your lineup Let's keep it sweet and short on that Vonda, the giants and the bears style to start him. You gotTA start a couple, Allen Ahmanson saquon Barkley. Evan. Ingram. Probably your must starts there. That's exactly the three that I got maybe whatever the report is on Montgomery if he's Saying. Healthy after week one, I think he's Ma start there. Yeah. You look pretty good. So I think you did look really good. He had thirteen carries sixty four yards. He only had one reception on ten yards but overall, you drafted Montgomery depending on his injury happened to be the guy. So if he's healthy I'm starting them but I mean, yeah the giants defenses a rough go the one hundred yards to. Benny Snell. So If Montgomery is still four healthy you're starting Montgomery could starts to re Cohen Anthony Miller Sterling Shepard Darius Laden about where I meant. Yeah. People Sleep on Daria Slayton. He had a huge year last year. He's having a great night tonight and opening night if you need to start dairy slate and do it yeah. Trubisky moved into my code starts I mean if you're in a wide receiver to he didn't look good by hide receiver to. Too Yeah, if you're in a to Q. V. League. Start Mitch. Trubisky he didn't look great but he did have a comeback victory with the lions couple TD's so ro Mitch we'll see what happens but you could he's a could start. He has buying into Jimmy Graham at all. nope. Not at all same. It was weird though to see what Jimmy Graham Greg Olsen both catch touchdown passes the vets getting it done. Don't forget Jason went and had a one yard to yard catch your old guys doing things it needs to go back to the booth actually I don't even want him in the no witnesses retired retire just walk away for a little bit buddy should be glove model with those monsters hands. There you go. Second career are as move onto the three o'clock slate. The first one they on the board here, The Washington football team at the Arizona cardinals. This is going to be below cardinals are going to absolutely stop them. Yeah. After what they did was to San Francisco's good defense Washington has a pretty good defense but yeah, I, start your cardinals. Yeah in Arizona. Kyla. Murray. Kenyan. Drake. Deandre. Hopkins. I'm starting all three of them with the utmost confidence even chase edmunds had six carries for twenty. Six yards three receptions, nineteen receiving yards, and a touchdown. The big surprise for me was Christian Kirk one receptions zero yards on five targets Larry. Fits, only had five targets. I mean, it was all the Onder Hopkins Yeah it's the de'andre Hopkins factor yet last year the cardinal spread the ball around they had a bunch of people get targets, and then they just completely switched to the Houston offense where you just unload targets at Deandre Hopkins. Guys think deandre Hopkins can keep two hundred and thirty target pace. ooh. I'm. GonNa hit the. Start of the year though I said that I truly believe. Deandre Hopkins will be around one hundred and sixty targets took the over on it and I. Still I mean week one kind of solidified that targets but they're going to be throwing them the ball. All the time is Terry. Scary, Terry, McLaren Start for you as if you have them. Yeah. At this point still must start for me. I mean not hitting the panic button dwayne. Haskins is terrible. He's so bad but I'm still starting Terry McLaren. Last year and McLaren Baldo he's like your Jamison crowder like he's the most talented player on a pretty crappy offense like he's going to get some targets Arizona's defenses not elite by any means. So scary Terry Bounceback Game I think cool. Could Start de how about Antonio Gibson I think better guys on the waiver wire I'm just not ready I'll I didn't see enough week one to feel any resemblance of confidence and starting him. So no, he's a sit for me at this point still like just think guys drafted him at the end of the year and like the fourth or fifth round. Yeah. If your draft broke after the news of both guys and AP, yeah, he was going and rounds like four and five but there's GonNa be some people that are pink Peyton Barbara because for some reason he out-touched Gibson Seventeen to eleven just don't be the person that picks Peyton. Barbara that was a flash in the PAN member when he did that all last season against Tampa in Tampa Bay just ruined row does like ceiling like bets that's what I think Peyton will do as he will be there to be the biggest thorn Antonio Gibson side another big surprises, Logan Thomas Eight targets, four sections, thirty seven yards, and a touchdown I'm not touching him I'm not buying it but just something to keep your eye on if he can have a solid encore next week let's move on to Kansas City chiefs at Los Angeles chargers. Thing must starts here I might start like Patrick Mahomes. Guys. All right. Nothing. Special. I'll have been my lineup tyree Kale Clyde Edwards Allaire Travis Kelsey Austin actor is about where top out Yep those are all my must starts same homes had two hundred and eleven yards and three touchdowns but was really surprising was he didn't run the ball once I don't know if I like that or not GonNa want keep them healthy but a big part of his game is how mobile e is and being able to pick up the first downs when when the pocket collapses escaping the pressure I'm curious to see what that looks like in the next couple of weeks want to. Make the comparison of Patrick mahomes Aaron Rodgers in the sense that he scrambles when he has to. So he can throw the ball as far as he possibly can and only will run if it's just wide open now I think that's patty homes as like that's as big niche as he just can scramble to just chuck the ball you're saying post injury. Yeah. Like I. I still think that's what he does. He scrambles away just to buy himself a little bit of time and he will only run if there's just wide open field. Yeah. Because pre injury that that wasn't the case no kind of seems like what? Then sent. So we'll. We'll see if that trend continues could start for me while more than likely are going to start Keenan Allen and then Josh Kelley. Sammy. Watkins can walk INS do it week to last year? You couldn't is it going to be different this year we'll see it's a pretty tough ask against the chargers they do have two very good corners, but we'll see how much attention they focus on tyreek hill so that Sammy Watkins could have a big big opportunity in front of him I. Just want the chargers to keep it a competitive game because if they can keep it a game Casey's going to be throwing the whole night and that is going to be awesome for fantasy purposes next one up Baltimore Ravens. Houston Texans who are Emma starts here I think this is going to be a really fun game but Lamar Jackson Mark. Andrews Willfuller and John Watson just because you drafted him to be the starter there I. Mean it's a tough defense. You gotta temper expectations but those are my foremost starts. What about David Johnson he had a great week one. It's against Baltimore though you're probably going to start him but he's a good start for me. If I'm deep enough running back, I would love to pivot away. Yeah. After how good he looked especially with him having ten days of rest to he had fourteen touches for a hundred and five yards and a touchdown. I'm definitely going to have him in my lineups. If I have the luxury of sitting him I'm going to be pretty excited about the rest. Of My team but I I, love the willful or man eight catches one, hundred, twelve yards, ten targets he looked like the clear number one in that offense I'm absolutely starting fuller must start for me as well as Marquees Brown just that second option there he looked really good on week one start at the Hollywood in their five catches one, hundred, one yards on six targets I'll take that all day. What are you guys doing with the Mark Ingram JK Dobbins dilemma sit both sit both until we see more Need more evidence. This is a backfield that's just going to be a mess. I mean, they talked about it. They wanted to get all four running backs involved Justice Hill was at least inactive week one. So we don't have to worry about that headache, but all three backs our click it. It's just going to be a mess I. Mean we we talked about this before we even saw record and there's a weeks for Dobbin tests two touchdowns. Then Edwards is going to have two touchdowns Ingram's GonNa buy it. For me. I'm perfectly find certain JK dobbins if you have to especially with all the injuries and everything going on, he only had twenty two rushing yards on seven attempts but he scored two touchdowns a gave him the goal line work in CHR, just tore up Houston. So I'm perfectly fine certain. J and right in the hot hand I would I'm fully expecting him to get into the end zone again is that really the hot hand though we have an attempt, there was no hot hand in that offense I. In my opinion Dobbins on the one drive was literally put in at the goal that was his one carry on there and so yeah, he got that touchdown but that's not like sustainable. Yeah. But I mean, if he's going to score touchdowns I'm I'm willing to take it. I am fully expecting those to to have more than fifty one combined rushing yards against Texans that just gave up one hundred and thirty or whatever it was to C. H. Similar in there like for me as a have to hold. Onto sit until, I see more evidence as Brandin cooks I agree I'm sitting all of them brandin cooks, Randall Cobb Kenny Stills, and Kiki Cutie those four combined for four receptions and forty three arts are they on any of your rosters brand cooks unfortunately on one of my rosters I got a lot of Drennan cooks but I drafted him in a lot of places to be the bye week fill guy. So I have a lot of him but yeah, he'll be sitting on my bench I don't know if he. Aggravated, the injury report came out but his usage was kind of weird week one. So I don't know if there's going to eat them along. So he did have that quad injury. So something I want to monitor they add like the first drive when they did factor him in right away but the guy that I'm watching in this game two is Jordan Atkins he Looked good week one he had break. Oh Games the last year. So he's named remember let's move into Sunday night football patriots and the Seahawks Matt who do you have for your starts here? My must starts are Russell Mr Unlimited Wilson Chris Carson Tyler Lockett Decay Metcalf and I through Cam Newton in their seventy nine percent completion percentage he only threw for one hundred and. Fifty five yards cam had fifteen carries seventy five yards and two rushing touchdowns. If he's going to provide that type of value on the ground, that is definitely something that you want in your lineup I think Seattle is GonNa get off to a pretty early lead especially at home even without the twelfth man advantage without the crowd but I think cam, we'll put up. A decent fantasy day. Yeah. Let Russ Cook Season has begun. Yes. I agree with all those have those exact same starter must start is any? Was it surprising to you guys that Chris Carson had six carries for twenty one yards and then had six receptions for forty five yards and two touchdowns. That's how is GonNa throw more the season it's just those little outlets to. Jason trying to tell us at all. Yeah I have in week one. It was fantastic and I'm loving it and I hope it continues the only one there. Borderline for me is Cam Newton because one hundred and fifty yards passing he'll get that rushing but the two touchdowns is not likely. So if you take one of those away, he's all of a sudden bottom end qb to right but he is Golan back to I like him I think his passing can only really go up. From there, I think they just they dominated the dolphins and they didn't have to let him do anything but I like the floor that Cam Newton can provide you with his rushing. He looked healthy. Yeah. Florida's Nice. What are you guys doing? Julia. Delman and James White hold. Yeah. I like element still he he didn't have a high snap percentage but what he did have his he had high snap percentage on passing plays. He was on twenty of twenty two passing plays. So you'll. Love to see that if they went to arrest him when they want to run the ball, go for it. Yeah. I WANNA see more evidence on both of them until making the move to to start them, you know what? I'm sitting one hundred percent for sure in any league I don't have him but I would sit him Sony Michelle ten Russia's thirty seven yards did score a touchdown but he offers nothing in the passing game and Cam is going to vulture those touchdowns more often. Than not big Monday night game, New Orleans Saints and Las Vegas Raiders. This is going to be a fun to watch. I. Am looking forward to there's a lot of fantasy relevance on a on a Monday night. Yeah. Big Monday Nike must. Start Alvin Kamara drew brees Josh. Jacobs is what I got and then Michael Thomas I put a question mark because that ankle scares the heck out of me. Yeah. We gotta figure out what's going on with any ankle injury like three question marks. The one wasn't enough. What about Darren Waller York's He did get some volume or is it eight target six receptions? Yep. Forty five yards but not the volume that he got last year no I think in this game though he is a must start, they're going to be trailing saints have a very good defense. But I do think that this is a game that they control lot of garbage time points I have A. Feeling so Dan Waller is is must start for me in this situation same starting Darren Waller all day he had an awesome season last year and then putting up over ten points in week one as tight end I'll take that all day eight targets I mean, that's that's right on pace with where he was and then New Orleans this allowed fourteen fantasy points to OJ Howard I will take. Darren Waller over OJ. Howard. Any Day of the week going to be a high over under on that game. So I'm definitely starting Darren Waller fifty and a half I like about rugs man that was scary that injury we happen to be having. We had the game on at that time too I i. looked at you guys I was like, Ooh look good but he did come back yet another. Catches. Well hopefully, he's not limited by it. You know he's so fast like you watch him in college and you're like, really really fast. See the forty time but seeing it against NFL teams, he is really frigging fast. Yeah. Henry rugs is somebody that is very intriguing to me. He's not a must start yet. I wouldn't be surprised in the next couple of weeks if he can get to that status. But? Yeah. He's super fast and he is t looks explosive. So we'll see what Derek Carr can do with them. Yeah. Any other starts I got Emmanuel Sanders and trae Clint Smith depending on the injury Thomas Jared Cook Jared Cook went five receptions, eighty yards on seven targets. Especially, if Micheal Thomas is Oh, if Micheal Thomas is out, he's a mustard. Yeah he's a smash must start. So when we? Think about week to what games are you looking most forward to that Monday. Night game is going to be awesome. I can't wait to lots of saints and the Raiders, the Monday night game, the Falcons cowboys game, and then the chiefs chargers. Gamer. The three big ones in my eyes that I really am going to have is on quick here who is your Stud for week two and is your dud. On the table I was studs. Matt. Once you start out of the week is going to be the night here. Kareem. Hunt. He has outperformed Nick Saban seven of nine games since they've been teammates Cleveland, it's boroughs first road game in prime time I think he's GonNa Struggle, I think Cleveland rebounds in a big way this week and I think it is at the hands of cream hunt I get. Mine is Paris cable against the Minnesota Vikings. He led the wide receivers for the colts in snaps, targets, receptions, and yards. So Paris, Campbell, is going to feast against that. Awful. Vikings cornerbacks mine is Jamison crowder. It is crowder's season just volume game hopkins destroyed the forty niners crowder isn't even close to as good as hopkins but it's all about that volume going to be a crowded bandwagon I'm jumping on. vk. Nice. All right who do you guys got for your dudes for me? My Dad of the week is going to be Zach Ertz in it has nothing to do with his talent. I Love Zach Ertz him on numerous fantasy teams, but it has everything to do with Dallas. Got Her over their last three games of football. Dallas Goddard has twenty one receptions on thirty one targets two, hundred, fifty, seven yards and two touchdowns. Zach. Ertz has twelve receptions on twenty three. Targets one hundred and seventy yards and two touchdowns. Dallas has significantly outplayed him in all of the last three Games Zach Ertz has already frustrated with the contract negotiations or lack thereof I. Think it's pretty clear that it's going to be Dallas got show next year and I think it's already starting this year. Cool. Tyler you gotTa Dud I. DO I've been wishy washy on 'em. All preseason didn't believe the hype bought into the hype but C. H. Against the chargers. Up, against a much better run defense is not getting those receptions not punch ended in on the goal line knocking down in week two ater Nah hater who got sick same game nothing new talent, and it really has nothing to do with anything around him up. The fact that the teams plan is really good at covering wide receivers it's going to be tyreek Hill. He's going to be my dad he's going to have these weeks or he does not do. Much and I have a feeling this is a three for thirty six type game with no touchdown sounds like Sammy Watkins season week to sounds like a lot of Clyde or in my opinion but know it it's to me. It's a lot of Sammy. It's a lot of Kelsey and it's a lot of Clyde. Yeah. Like all three of those are pretty bold their their players that are going to be in everybody's starting lineup. So hard I like going to. Tough I. Mean Michael Thomas. The cheap easy one because of the injury but I wanted shock factor. Talarico. All right. Well, that wraps up our week to episode.

Phinsider Radio: Surprising finish to the Miami Dolphins 2019 season

"Hello everybody and welcome to inside radio my name is McKenna backing out and joined by errands and Joshua hosts the Miami Dolphins coming off a twenty seven twenty four victory over the New England patriots whose dynasty may be coming to a close a little earlier than we all thought the Patriots limping into the wild card round. They'll take on Ryan Tannehill in Tennessee. Titans this coming weekend as they look to advance to the divisional rounds of that Horse Conference Championship and the Super Bowl. But this is a dolphins podcast. So who cares about the Patriots. Just as as long as they lose all will be well but Ryan Fitzpatrick Pudding on another clinic. Three hundred twenty two three hundred twenty yards. In the year one touchdown twenty of forty one. Patrick Patrick Lar- layered eleven carries for twenty one yards. Still not the Best Ryan Fitzpatrick almost coming in close at five carries for fifteen yards. Averaging drink. Three point zero yards per carry Ryan. Fitzpatrick is a monster. And I sure do hope he comes back. We'll talk about him in just a a little bit. devante Parker put a clinic on. Stefan Gilmore eight receptions one hundred thirty seven yards. Seventeen point one yards per reception option. The guy is an absolute beast. Andrew Gingko playing and other key role on the defensive side of the ball seven tackles and also had a few nice place disrupt distrupt the backfield which led to other players. His teammates making plays as well. Miami Dolphins finished the season five and eleven a tremendous accomplishment considering how they started the season considering how people were saying they were embarrassments in the NFL. How they were saying that what they are doing is a Komo morally reprehensible and they should be disciplined to the fullest extent including stripping away draft picks? But how funny isn't that teams. Were not even trying to tank thank finished worse than the Dolphin dollars. We picking fifth overall in a twenty twenty. NFL draft outs. In season's over felt felt like kind of feels like it just began yesterday but also feels like it has been one hell of a long season it stressful season to say the very least while we are hoping for that number one draft pick it is not here blots. The dolphins have found themselves head coach Bryant floors. In my opinion that is worth much more than any traffic regardless of word slotted of course We wouldn't be dolphins fans if we couldn't celebrate a victory tree in Foxborough which we haven't done a really long time and then turn around and have our possibly best defender get arrested and fire fire offensive coordinator so it's been a little bit of a whirlwind but Kudos for the dolphins the way that they played against New England. Now it was one of those games where we just always had an answer for what New England did and it seemed like Thera- plenty of opportunities for New England breakaway in that game but it turns out that the biggest scoring margin in the whole day was after Eric rose. Tom Brady was hadn't you know which hadn't happened. Ever against the Miami Dolphins Such a lame throw too so beautiful like he threw in between the two guys an aircraft. Just Kinda just kind of fell right into was right into his chest then just ran it. In for a touchdown. So what a gorgeous play and Kudos to the to the way that the dolphins were resilient through the entire season season. That's the type of Bounce back that you WANNA be able to Seattle players who are getting absolutely crushed across us all national media channels anybody that had you know. A phone was was lobbing grenades at the dolphins at that point in time so for them to go through that that by comeback still trust the process and go through everything with the injuries that happened and to be able to win five ballgames Brian Florez whereas a hell of a job. And we'll get to the other things as Avian Howard and the Chatto Shaping but I think even by that same token token that he has my trust right now so Five wins for Brian. Florez going into two thousand and twenty. NFL draft. I like where they were standing. Are you talking about within interception future Miami Dolphin Tom Brady. Oh my God no are we gonna go there again. I I hope not because I think we saw Sunday. That Ryan Fitzpatrick is a superior player at this point. At least in two thousand nineteen much have two thousand Eighteen Ryan Fitzpatrick over two thousand thousand eighteen. Tom Brady threw up an absolute duck. There that Eric Rowe picked I mean he led the dolphins in rushing this year. Two hundred forty three yards four touchdowns I mean the oldest player in. NFL history through to lead his team in rushing yards. That says more about the dolphins offensive line than it does fitzpatrick as a runner. But the guy has the grit. He went out there. You put this team on his back. Ever since he got thrown in there and Washington game I mean the offense was lifted up. He turned devante Parker into a twelve hundred receiver. I mean what he did to Stefan Gilmore. What many believed to be the best defensive back in football football? What many believe to be defensive player of the year he had his way with him? Eight receptions one hundred thirty seven yards seventeen point one yards average average reception. I mean Devante. Parker looks like the number one wide receiver that many people believed he could be when he was drafted. I am so thankful. Dolphins did not give up on Devante Parker. When a lot of fans you know we turned her back on him? We believe that he was a bust. We'd all the reason the world to believe that but Devante Parker grinded hard. This off season with this. Coaching staff has ascended. And that's just house. Entire fire team is going. You know we started out owens seven things looked bleak as can be. We all thought we were in the running for the number one pick and the dolphins went five and four towards the end of the year. I mean you gotta tip your hat to Brian floors ores. How he has brought this team together? We always make fun of the word the culture and you know how he wants to get his guys and this and that I mean you can clearly see the culture here Miami you can. Clearly we see that these guys don't think they are bigger than you know the next person beside him. It's unfortunately happening saving Howard. I mean he was a superstar on this roster. We will get into that later. We're GONNA talk about about the Chad. O'Shea news I know cannot has a you know some inside Some Intel there on who might be the next offense corner but overall I mean what the dolphins did this year. They went above and beyond anyone's expectations. They want five games when again. It looked like they were going to go winless like they were going to have a chance at that. Joe Bureau that Cincinnati Bengals pick. You know maybe be in the long run. That might be the better way to go. But you can't sit there and look at the bengals and say they have the right head coach. They have the culture in place. 'cause that would be a lot. I mean Zack. Taylor Looks Godawful. Compared paired with Brian Floors has done most of the rookie. QUARTERBACK's look godawful. Compared to what Brian Floors has done. He has his players around and behind him. You Know He. He is the coach that we've all believed that we we needed since Don Shula left. You know Sir. There was Jimmy Johnson while set a couple guys here and there but I feel best right now saying that. I think Brian Floors has his team team headed in the right direction. And then we're heading into the most important off season in franchise history. So I love that win. I know that some people were mixed on it because during the game he thought maybe impact Komo that the fifth overall pick it no draft implications so to sit there and watch the dolphins go downfield. I mean I don't know about you guys but I've never in recent years felt that confident they were going to go down down the field and win that game that pass to Mike just sticky. He just turns around and tells US Defense to Shush in Foxborough. First Win since the wildcat game I mean it was a great. I'm getting goose bumps just thinking about it. The perfect ending to the two thousand eighteen season again. A season lost at one point. The dolphins are heading in the right direction and everyone should feel happy about that. We'll think about how truly crazy this is. I mean the dolphins were a lot of sports books closed at seventeen and a half point underdogs and to win in that Game Street up. That's one of the biggest betting upsets. We've seen and recent history if you remember buffalo beating Minnesota last year on the road That was another one but you know if you bet one hundred bucks on the dolphins to win the Sunday you could have one up to a thousand bucks in return so you know I was one of those games where you expect the Patriots at that time of the year of playing their best football. They're at their home stadium and they kind of came out and were flat and yeah. They came and and did a typical patriots. Sort of thing to us and score at the you know with four minutes left in the fourth quarter but then we answered that drive with a thirteen play. Seventy Five Yard three minute and twenty nine second drive to win the game. I I mean that is it does have a little bit of a wildcat feeling to me just in the sense that we caught caught them with their pants down and we rarely ever see the Patriots and that type of situation house like you said I i. I did not think there is any moment in that game where the dolphins did not have a chance. I just felt like they were going toe to toe and even doing better than them and some phases of the game and Tom Brady does not look like the same Tom Brady anymore. Now he doesn't here. Here's here's what all admit after we ran the fake after. That didn't transpire. That's when I was like okay. We're already pretty deep. In our well of of tricks we've already ran on fourth down plays and fake punts and fake field goals and stuff. The Patriots have to be ready for that. We just ran out out of stuff so after that I was Kinda like well here we go. Here's you know new New England's GONNA kick it in assists six year and and kick our butts but after that APP that the defense made a stop and every time the Patriots have like two or three plays of momentum. We would have stopped there and and the you know it was just one of those games or the Patriots just never really got anything going and we just never used to saying that cantor from Cox has all your favorites all in one place and with the contour remote you can use your voice to fund them on live. TV On demand and streaming APPS like netflix prime video win more seats Cox Dot Com for details and the offense like you. Bold mentioned it really well which makes it kind of confusing when we saw the news. Come through on Monday afternoon black Monday in the NFL. Is it like to call it. That offense coordinator Chatto. Shay was fired and this came as a surprise to everybody right. I mean we saw the news. Come through Tony Oden was fired on defensive side of the ball the Dave the offensive line coach Meghan to try to pronounce his last. Name's I butcher. Every single time was fired and it was kind of like okay. We see we see Y. You Know Brian Floors wants his guys. In Odin was a holdover from Adam Geza staff we can see the logic behind and then all of a sudden we see the tweet come on through from Berry Jackson the Miami Herald and others that chat. O'Shea was fired and it's a everyone by surprise because the offense has looked pretty good this year. I mean yes. There were times where they struggled but I think we all attributed that to the lack of talent. The dolphins had lack of run game. The lack of offensive line the dolphins had headbutt apparently Bryant. Flora's has very high expectations for this offense of unit. Yeah I think that's what's crazy to me. I mean I don't know how you guys fell shadow. Shay was a guy that you know. He had this offense turned around. And when you look at it statistically at the end of the season they still right twenty-seventh in the league so clearly Brian Flora's you know we make jokes about Adam case. And what he did and how he kinda hits Wagner some of those friends or assistance that he had I mean that guy you know held onto Matt Burke one of what we believe to be one of the worst defensive corners corners that we've ever seen here Miami. We made jokes about him many times when he was here. The dolphins had what many believe was a nice upcoming offensive coordinator. A guy that it seemed again that he turned this offense around from has dismal as was earlier in the year he got rid of him and it just like that. I mean you see some teams around the league. You know they're hesitant team. Get rid of some their head. Coach's right now with a little bit of uncertainty there. Br on floors at his press conference kind of downplayed it and said they have to evaluate everyone. He's even evaluating himself. You mentioned in how should have thrown some more red flags later came out. He fired the offensive coordinator the offensive line coach and the safeties coach. You GotTa take you out to Brian floors and I know a lot of people are up in arms because a a lot of us again like myself thought shadow Shay was a promising young offensive coordinator. Maybe going to go and go back to New England. Maybe will follow Josh mcdaniels. Wherever he goes but but at the end of the day he thought that this offense could have done a lot better than being twenty seventh ranked in the League? He felt like that was an Achilles heel. And you Brian Floors. He's done enough throughout this year. That we should all you know. Trust the process and trust O'Brien floors is doing. I'm not sure who the next guy up is. I think you might have some idea. There cannot but I'm excited for the future of the Miami Dolphins Dolphins and if Brian floors says you know what chatshow you're not the guy I'm sorry we have to move on. I fully support that move no matter how I felt prior to today yeah. It's kind of tough. I mean it's it's mixed emotions for sure because we saw the improvement and the offense towards the end of the season. So there's that natural literal Kinda recency effect where it's you know. We saw production. So why are we getting rid of the guy and we know the obstacles surely rover come and a variety of situations But we also have some information that was to say that Chatto Shay was a good wide receivers coach and it just kind of speaks to the Peter Principle of someone getting a promotion into that next thing. You know that previous job. They did very well and then when you promote them expecting them to be able to kind of plateau like they did at their last position. They're not able to do that. And maybe that's the case here and Simply put that. He's a great phenomenal wide receiver rex coach and he's a good person and he was part of the part of staff with Brian. FLUORESCENCE two thousand nine. So there's no way this decision was made lightly but at the end of the day you know I I trust someone you know if I've worked with Matthew an in house for eleven years on a podcast and I decided to get rid of them. You'd better trust me. So here's the thing that we've been hearing about Chat O'Shea Jerry Linski over at pro football network. We we had seen as we come through when everyone was speculating. And all this and that. And we have seen Joel Merino from the draft network or tweet something about juries Possibly because of his ties Josh mcdaniels and the fact that Josh mcdaniels had the inside track for the Cleveland job at one of the other jobs out there and the the fact that Jewish aplenty was going to go to the Culture Josh mcdaniels for the offensive coordinator position. The dolphins actually fired shadow shape because of the fact that they wanted to keep Gerry supplant ski so we have been Albright as you all know. Follow us on twitter. PM Entry Sixty Five. We have been all twenty one and we have others who are connected to the dolphins in some shape you perform. So that's what I went into our slack channel. I said Hey ben Hey Tony Hey Matt five-day are co owner and you guys probably know on twitter as well. What do you have for us you? What are you hearing down in Miami and then comes back with yes? What Joe said is correct that the dolphins are trying to protect ship? Linski in foster came back with the fact that yes. That is correct that they value developing quarterbacks more than Chattel Shay's not in that vacuum the in the total sense to hold on total package. You want someone who can develop quarterbacks young quarterbacks and Jerry Shinsegae is known for doing just that he had a key role in developing guys. I Jacoby for set and Jimmy Garoppolo over before they traded them. Bolt away but You know that's why dolphins made that move and then about an hour later after. I got an email from Tony Pauline. Who had stated a he had sent a Texas someone in the organization and and or connected to the organization in some shape or form warm and that the feeling was that as you mentioned? Sign there while chat. O'Shea was seen as a very good wide receiver coach. The fact of the matter is that some people inside the building did not view him as a very good offensive coordinator. So you put all the other. I'm sure there are other issues as well. Chris Bauman our friend over three yards per curry. Also put together a string of tweets that may have hinted at some unrest within the organization in terms of the philosophies in the quarterback philosophies in in and being the guy who was pounding the table for Josh Rosen on draft night for the dolphins and trade for him. And perhaps that channel Shea wanted Josh. Rosen is start while Brian floors was insistent on Ryan Fitzpatrick starting and it could be this whole philosophy philosophical disagreement that they have that led read it to his dismissal. We'll see where chatter. She ends up. I'm sure it may be somewhere on Josh mcdaniels staff but you see these media reports lamenting the loss awesome shadow Shea and how. It's going to hurt the dolphins and based on what everything we've heard tonight doesn't seem like it's going to be a huge huge loss for Miami. You GotTa get Brian Floors Credit. This was the guy who had worked with for many many years. New England Shadow Shea may jump to Miami to come with him and after one season he is out. Brian floors holds. It's very very high standards. Then it's great to see. I have one last thought on the subject and basically what we saw in this situation and this is kind of new information to me. Because I'd I had always been under the impression that you cannot deny an assistant coach from having an interview with another team for promotion. But what I'm finding. Is that in reality. That rule is not very strictly enforced and in fact it seems to favor the teams more often and with a semantic with what they call people and their stuff building people's contracts and stuff like that so really. What you see is is that there's just head coaches and everybody else so someone likes you? Plans ski who you know what the kind of common theory is here is is that we had to promote basically ship Linski because he would have been the de facto offensive coordinator Nader and whatever mcdaniels wherever he goes he was going to be the offensive coordinator of that staff so we wanted him for ourselves. So we had to make a choice between Chattanooga who had his effect on offense however positive. You may view that I am the dolphins valued. She planned ski and his work with the quarterbacks knowing how important the tutelage of our rookie quarterback is it's going to be whenever that may be two thousand twenty or two thousand twenty one. It doesn't really matter. We wanted to plan scheme we valued that over. You're oce so there is that but it was not. It was something that the dolphins could have prevented. But I will end this and saying that I do not believe. A quality organization is going to prevent coaches from seeking promotions. I just think that's A. Do she move so. I'm glad that the dolphins played at the way that they are. If this is you know the true true landscape of the way that decision was made I agree with it because I would not want to deny ship Linski the opportunity to go to a different team and play that card I just feel better about the way it turned out this way. And this is really a hard decision. In a bunks. Men All know each other. These are all guys that know each other so i. I'm sure this was not something that was just somebody was blindsided with you. Know what I mean go ahead. I think you're absolutely right with the way that was handled. Because I mean you mentioned that these guys are friends you know. They've been together for eleven years. They you know they built this bond this chemistry together. And you're absolutely right. You know they could have blocked plans ski from getting an offense offense coordinator position. They decided against they decided that you know he's more valuable disorganization. He's the future offense Grenell. He's the guy that's going to help get that rookie quarterback to the next level over Over what shadow shaded this year. And we don't sit there. We don't know exactly what shadow shared his hands on. But from the outside looking in you know the receiving core was very good and obviously a lot of ahead with Carl Durell more than maybe Chatto Shea based on what you know. He had the experience there. In New England he worked with their wide receivers. We thought when he came over here you know he'd have valuable knowledge college to help you know. Get A devante next level. Obviously Brian Floors didn't see it that way. But again you're absolutely right absolutely blocked Polinsky from getting another Offense coordinator interposition or even interviewing for one. He chose the right way chose to like. Oh Chat O'Shea chose to promote from within by many reports and again. You just got to trust that. Brian floors knows what he's doing. He keeps saying he's doing what's best for the Miami Dolphins. This move seems to be that way. Shop Linski was with a New England patriots and offensive. Assistant two thousand thirteen to two thousand thousand fifteen. Then he assistant quarterbacks coach from two thousand sixteen and two thousand eighteen and then that's when he came to Miami as the assistant quarterbacks coach again he was eventually going to take over eventually go with Josh mcdaniels to India and become his offense coordinator was the next man up and I think all along. That's kind of how the dolphins envisioned this and it sucks for shadow shea. You Hope. He landed on his feet. I'm sure you will land somewhere whether it's back lender you know. Maybe he follows Josh mcdaniels but the dolphins do what is best for the Miami Dolphins and their future at the quarterback position. And you gotTa Take Your Brian Floors hours for doing the right thing and respectable manner. One thing they brian floors will also have to deal with besides finding this offense according to whether or not he's wanting promote multiracial put ski which all signs point to the fact that he is is something on the players side of things. And that's exhibit Howard. who was arrested over the weekend for a domestic violence alleged domestic violence dispute according to the please before it read something such as he was getting into an argument with his VIANSA? I believe it was over a purse that He did not know about those purchased from the police report and correct me if I'm wrong boys but he had grabbed her by the arms pushed her her and then she fell and as a result she called the police and then he was arrested booked on bonds and now he will be subject to suspension suspension in to begin the twenty twenty. NFL season could see something. Probably we'll see something based on how strict the NFL is coming down with this kind of thing but certainly not acceptable if it is aw If it all comes true and again it's all alleged right now but even if he is acquitted of this the possible suspension will still applies applies. Still apply under the personal conduct policy within the NFL. Not a good look for the teams highest player and for the face of Basically League this team in exhibiting Howard. Hey I'm Jason no right. I recently wrapped up land of the giants the rise of Amazon. In this podcast we examined. How Jeff bezos turned a small online bookseller into one of the most powerful companies in the world? We start by exploring how Amazon prime they became a service with over one hundred million members and the main source of the company's power. I mean I think that's kind of what Amazon's banking on right that you're just so locked in. You're going to go to any other sites. 'cause I mean I don't and we end this season by pondering. The question is Amazon too big and we just don't WanNa be the United States Amazon we just really don't land of the giants has been recommended by the New York. Times axios wired and more. It's a candidate. Look at the state of Amazon today. How we got here and what the future might look like? The entire first season is out. Now find out more and binging on apple podcasts. Or your favorite podcast I I I hate to see this guy that you know. He got hurt. He's been banged banged up throughout his career. A lot of people you know they don't really agree with maybe that contract extension one. The dolphins gave it to him. I think it was the right time because you know he needed to get under contract before he. He broke out in the following year and you know exceeded expectations. But this is just something that you never expect it from exerting Howard for how you know family oriented oriented. Brian Floor seems to be you saw him and his press conference. He wasn't going to make any rash. Decisions remain comment on the situation until you gather all the information till we got to sit down with exuding Howard the rest of the dolphins organization. I really don't know how the contract plays out. I don't know obviously there could be a void in there at some point. You know for issues like this but it's just not something that you want to see from from your superstar. cornerback that you just gave a monster deal to a guy that again. He was on crutches you know. Everyone makes fun of two. He was walking like a pimp with a cane in one hand and he was walking around on what seemed to be just fine. Exuding Howard was on crutches you know so aside from the knee and the concerns there. I mean what he did off the field. You never want a player you never want anyone to lay their hands on a woman for to be your star player you know battling through this knee injury on injured reserve in hopes of you know being ready for twenty twenty this is not the type of this is not the type of player that Brian Floors on the surface in the dolphins organization. It'll be very interesting to see you. Know how how how great he views. Exuding Howard skillset compared to this issue. And you know it's Howard's first incident. We don't know all the details. Things are going continue to unravel. But it's something you hate to see from the shutdown corner and I I don't. I don't wish to be Brian floors to have to make that decision because again exhibiting Howard is one of the best defensive offensive backs and football. Yeah just all round unfortunate situation and I won't speculate because I wasn't there I don't know what happened and that night. Just hope that there's some type of positive outcome to this event that will be question for the dolphins to address as we head into twenty twenty offseason which brings us to our next and final point for this edition of insider radio and that is what will the dolphins doing free to see in the NFL. Draft Chris greer season-ending adding press conference long Bryant. Flora's said that with the money that they are going to use it free agency. They're going to be smart. They're going to be judicial going to make sure that the players they get are the right fit for this team and they're not going to go crazy spending crazy money if they don't have to. I think we're going to see different approach to fantasy a calculated approach to free agency approach. Where we now know what kind of players Brian floors wants on? His team obviously needs to be versatile. You need to have the durability to lasts through injuries and to be a tough you know player on that field off the field and to be a leader and to be smart football player you need to have a high football IQ. Oh to play in Miami under Brian Floor is so you can start crossing off people right away. You need to have a clean record. Probably off the field although they have been known to give second can chances but does seem more like the low risk high reward type situations where you're signing guy off off the waivers or signing him as a free agents into a very low contract. Look at a guy like Preston Williams for example. I don't think it'll make a ton of money to guys infrequency. Who have proven to have off the field rap sheets? It's and poor records off the field so we will have an idea of what to expect but it is still also unpredictable in terms of how it's all going to play out. Dolphins ZT A lot of help offensive line. Defensive Line secondary running back position. I think things are a quarterback until the draft. I think they're said at wide receiver. They said it tight end but everything else after that is pretty much all table that of course the NFL draft pick in fifth. And then have the eighteenth pick from the steelers and that will see when the Houston in Texas. Pick shakes out. We'll have three first round picks could one of those picks at number five me chosen one to a tiger. Go by LOA. What are you boy saying? Okay let's just stick with two right now and I know you've said a thing or two about two Recently recently especially the pro football network mock draft so I will. I'm GONNA throw this both to you guys right now. I'm going to throw out some betting. Odds odd to you and Keep in mind. These are unfortunately bets are going to close at eight o'clock in the morning tomorrow morning. But here's the way Vegas is looking at this which is kind of interesting. So here's a question. How many quarterbacks are selected before too and the two thousand twenty draft over under two and a half so the over two and a half is minus minus one? Oh five and under two and a half as one minus one thirty five so that means that the under two and a half is a favorite right now but it's still a relative coin. Flip right now to vegas whether there will be two or three quarterbacks drafted before war too. So if you are thinking too is a Miami Dolphin are you going to go ahead and throw some dollars on this most delicious wager. That's tough because we don't know. No one knows how to as Medical Gordon check out of. It always wanted to clear for the NFL draft yet. So I would probably throw a few dollars on it if any was legal in Connecticut. But I'm not breaking the Bank for that there's actually a prop on whether to is in the twenty twenty one draft and it's plus four plus four hundred for yes minus six hundred for no so that means Overwhelming favourite for no which means that he would be entering this draft But again this is completely all conjecture based on what Vegas assign right now. I think I'm going with the under. I mean job rose go number number one overall. I think maybe you know just in herber might get drafted before him. You know. Maybe but I think that tuition absolutely probably go before You you know before Jordan love correct so for me. Yeah so let's just. Let's go down that road if Joe Borough. Let's say he's one whose quarterback back to before too and then would be quarterback three before too for me. I enjoyed it number two herbert urban children. Yeah Herbert Jordan. Love would be the only other two right. I mean even if Jake Fromm comes out you don't think he's going anywhere close to it. There's a lot a lot throughout the draft process. But I I mean I like those odds I think if to a declares. There's no reason why it doesn't go at least top five because you know everyone keeps reporting. He is the dolphins guy has has been all along and we know this organization. They're very tight lipped. I don't truly believe that people know for certain that has been this guy but I think it was rich Eisen reported he heard the draft. I have two years ago that the dolphins were enamored by this guy to me. As long as he checks out medically which we know the dolphins history I think he has to be that guy at five and I think I gotta ask you guys if you're on the clock. Is there any way you pass onto a and if you do at five. Who is the guy that you're taking because to me? The quarterback is the most important position Asian. They Love Ryan. Fitzpatrick is the perfect. You know you draft to you. Sit Him out almost the entire twenty twenty season. You build this team the right way and then twenty twenty one. He comes right in with an offensive line with a defensive line with the receivers with the tight ends with running back. I mean they're ready to compete in two thousand twenty. One assuming was healthy. I mean to me it just makes too much sense and it's GonNa be hard. You know if Isaiah Simmons Air Jeffrey Okada especially depending on what the dolphins do with existing Howard like we mentioned you know. He's a guy that they could draft their Derrick Brown there so many elite players that are going to be available at five but to me to me it would be so hard to pass onto it and then there's the thing that you know maybe us fans were over hyping Oh you know maybe. NFL personnel and the Scouting Department's teams. Front offices maybe. They don't think he's GonNa be a top five player maybe they they see too much risk there and you know every year we have a guy that you sit sit here and you say oh he's going to be a top ten pick and falls to the later part of the I I mean could that be too. There's so much uncertainty surrounding him. But I will say this that video that came out today with him walking with one crunch. I don't know some people were down on that. Maybe they felt a little bit. You know negative towards that to me based on his progress I mean. I'm not a doctor but I see that I mean you have to feel some kind of you. Got To feel optimistic that he's going to eventually recover even if he's at seventy five percent to me. He is the number two quarterback easily. If not better than Joe Borough to me you pulled the trigger number five and two as my guy I mean I would draft to f five. What about you guys I would? Yeah so I'd put out a tweet a few weeks ago saying that. I didn't think the dolphins will be going after two and I think I mentioned this a few weeks ago here on this show too. Then I thought they'd be going in the trenches and while I still think that's possible I was told hold shortly after her from a source that gave me the same information about Brian. Flora's would be the next day coach while pretty much. No one else had except a few other people. He had said that I was wrong. That the plan is to has always been to and we'll be to up and then I was told from someone else who's also given us some very good information within the the organization is that as long as medicals checkout to it is to pick in the first round so obviously one he needs enter the draft to his medical to check cout but all signs right now point to tackle by Loa being picked for the Miami Dolphins and number five overall. The only thing you have to worry about. Is someone jumping them but in the same breath unless his medicals comeback perfectly clean and people say he's going to be the same person who used to be. I don't see a general manager risking his this job and trading away all a lot of picks is you know it's going to be a premium a pixel move up to get a quarterback especially like to. I don't foresee general a manager risking all of that for a guy who may not ever be the same again but for the dolphins who are sitting there. If I were also have two other first round picks I can certainly see them taking this risk. I mean that's that's the big question risk and all throughout one more vegas related Context to this. And it's under over the nineteen and a half spot and the draft so in other words He's GonNa be drafted before. Nineteen is minus one ten. So if you think he is going to go number five five you're going to absolutely crush the spat fourteen spots ago so if you are buying the inclination that that too is going to be the dolphins draft choice at number five. I recommend you get on that as soon as you possibly can anyway. There is risk this though and I want everybody to just take a step back for a second and realize that this is a young man still going through through a very serious healing process which involves projection which involves a medical staff. which doesn't involve US 'cause? I was never part of medical school at any point in my life other than watching shows about it and stuff like that. So it's when you are in a position of drafting multimillion dollar players with multimillion. I million dollar expectations. Then you might look at risk a little bit differently. And if dolphins medical staff as untrustworthy worthy as they may be unfairly as they may be based on what happens drew brees but say this dolphins medical staff. I have comes in and says you know what this I. I'm not real sure about this recovery. And how it's going to go. Don't you have to take that into account when your draft Grafton at number five maybe down eighteen we still hit our bet. It's still under nineteen and a half and we just draft them with the steelers pick. That would be Kinda kinda crazy but Picking in the top five. I mean you have to get somebody for your program that you can really trust To to steer the direction of it so if it is to a than I applaud the dolphins for their conviction Kevin and I will trust them and doing so and I will route my ass off like I would for any other player that they that they draft at five but if they I do not select to a number five you have to appreciate that and know that it's not coming from a place of hey I I don't WanNa take the risks necessary to win. There's enough risk that I'm rolling the dice. Ace that we might actually blatantly lose in this type of situation so I couldn't. I couldn't fault the Dolphins for passing passing either to be honest with you. I would be shocked if they passed. I would too but I mean you're right and who's to say. The dolphins don't trapped him in. I mean sure. Some good things have happened to us this year. You know we found our head coach. They won five their last nine games. You know the dolphins are starting to the trend in the right direction but would it not be so Miami. Dolphins and I hate that a meeting saying this but they draft to and something happens. You know it doesn't work out and then we're sitting here. You know questioning why in draft Jordan lover. Whoever's out there you know performing and as the top five quarterback I mean it would just be so dolphins for them to go out there and get the guy that we so we love and we think the team covets? It's just a blow up in our face. I do think that you're right Sutton. I think that they're going to do their due. Diligence if they pass on them they pass on him for a reason but I do think you know if they don't draft to a ton of low at five they're going to regret it for many many years and I just fear that somehow bill belichick trade up and makes you know gets him to be the predecessor to new. Tom Brady and we are just sitting here in the same situation. Ten fifteen years from now wondering why the Hell we know took Justin Herbert or you know. They drafted a a a defensive tackle instead of the quarterback that was right there in their face. I mean we just got the biggest thing here is used to declare. I mean we're sitting here talking about two and we all want to you and you know twitter loves to but no one is certain whether or not he's coming out. He's even hinted on social media little hints here and there being a little cryptic maybe is returning. I don't see that as soon as best interest but again we're not the doctors you know. We don't know how his draft values being viewed right now. But I do think the dolphins through backchannel go right to go wherever they need to talk to and say hello. If we're on the clock at five we're going to take you and if someone else is going to take you know everyone keeps saying someone's GonNa Leapfrog the dolphins offense. The dolphins have the most draft capital in this draft. I think they might have the most. You know in in recent memory so the dolphins you know if a team's going to treat up to Detroit Detroit would be wise to call the dolphins and say what we're being offered this can you match it or can you exceed that and the dolphins if they believed to is there guy should do whatever it takes to get him. I know at that. Isn't you know some people think that it's not in their best interest to do so at the end of the day if they think to is their quarterback if you have to get in which again. I don't know if you do you do that. That at all costs Tula. If he's the guy make it happen. Do whatever it takes. We'll see all this play out all of this play out over the next few months. It's GonNa be very fascinating to watch and it's all going to come to a head in Las Vegas and the twenty twenty. NFL draft. And I'm planning on going. I know a lot of other Dolphins Sanzar answer plant going and it's going to be absolutely incredible to all be down there and you watch on TV from wherever we are and talk about it afterwards and really. This team is headed in the right direction. Action based on what we've seen this season. We know the. NFL is year to year. We know that things can change. Oh so quickly but I think we all have a very good feeling but the direction is franchises headed before we wrap up the show. We have some sad news Aaron Side I love you guys. This is it's my last show and when I thank everybody that was involved in. I can't believe we've been doing this show for what guys like three years. It's been a while and I don't know how long it's it's it's been awhile it's been awhile it's been awhile it's been awhile since I could could either Christ sign boys thank. You told me I was crying. That wasn't even. That's it's been awhile since home ahead. But how does sound like a crying cat while sorry for that while he was saying any asset thanks. I'm sure at align is going to be raised to have a great tone voice but anyway Also want to say I know. It's natural to see the dolphins fourteen picks and assume that might trade up pin open. Do all this kind of stuff like keep in mind that this is. This is serious draft capital that we can materialize into more war. And that's not to say that we need to trae down and have thirty picks. I'm not getting at absurd. Oh here but If we can trade picks for next year and have better business decisions based on the trade that we make say we you know have a team that wants. It's a treat up from the bottom of the fifth to the top of the fifth and they're going to give us a a next year's fourth for it that's a type of that's a type of draft. Pick that you know. That's a trade that I'm going to accept. And I just want dolphins fans to be cognizant of the fact that maybe it smart to trade down and and the two thousand twenty draft and not trade up Just because we have the pick says it mean that we need to compile them together. You know what I mean. So let's let's see how the board falls and have fun man. That's in Vegas. Two thousand twenty lot of good stuff's going to happen and again appreciate everybody for their support with all my work on the finsider and look forward to a lot. More interactions going forward. You didn't really say like what the news was was though. Yeah did I said this is my last show. Holy Hell if we if we if we round ourselves together gather do one at the beginning of the next year Help you back. I mean this is my last show. Where are you going to sign so my last show for two thousand nineteen and then have us on the show next week and actually what the fence cider?

[144] Houston Texans instant reaction

"Every year in the NFL. It's a new team. As far as goals go. We have one putting the fuck around offender. Welcome to the buccaneers observer. podcasts Ralph Philip December twenty first two thousand nineteen. We just watched the the Texans at buccaneers game week. Sixteen man what a game. That was fun. That was exciting. Molly is really crushed. She said that's what hurts parts. That's all she's been saying for like this hurts. This hurts. Yeah it was a lot of back and forth and it's a game that I think we definitely lost. Yeah exactly Nicholas and I accept one one thing bring up later where the Texans did it. Excellent okay for the most part. We lost this swan. We gave it away and the rest helped in the beginning sucked. There were a few pertinent calls. I thought they really screwed up. But in general this those are game to lose and we did and we did. The REF crew was Scott Novak first year as a head Raff his crew. None of them have been on this officiating crew. Before this is a new crew we had two guys had worked together on a separate crew and another two guys had worked together on a separate crew other than that totally new crew. These guys never worked together before and they had raff was a few Joe. Joe Yeah I think what the RJ. Or or Jason Raymond James Stadium. Now the trick questions. Anyway he was like a back judge or something and then this year was was promoted to head ref so we've got a crap. referee crew and it showed. But yeah you're right. I mean we lost this game. This is I think after Ba Eh chewed them out. The refs they really come down here right. There's a video on twitter. Him cussing at the rams like he can barely very very clearly. And I think that might have been after was that the Pi word the fumble that should have been ours though. God who knows there was such a long list of us being screwed by the Ralph's that fumble fumble but they rolled hamblur great progress was stopped and said that we couldn't challenge ridiculous. Here's the thing is again. It's a subjective rule. You know it's up to the officials to decide when somebody's progress stopped but when you've only got somebody's ankle one the ankle and they've got a leg free. Their progress shouldn't be stopped right when tons of we've seen somebody get out of an ankle tackle and move forward and then the pass S. `interference that that Texans receiver like got in Pyramids way he was tackling him before the ball even got to paramount so he couldn't catch it. They now is the non encore or call. NBA challenged it and they. The call stood blatant defensive. Pass interference then. The very next drive live team gets called for holding. That was really ticky tacky. And it's like okay. You'RE GONNA call some bullshit holding. That really could have gone either way. But YOU'RE NOT GONNA call a blatant impasse interference right in front of your referee on the sideline in how `Bout Bouchard Pyramid late in the fourth quarter has to come out of the game. The referee is force him out of the game because of a hit to the head yet they did not call a penalty debate right was like the replay. It was blatantly obvious that the defender come in shouldered him right in the head as a defensive receiver. No call but yet they'll force him off off the field. I the the that one just blew my mind. I think he did end up coming back after the in the I don't know oh yet but I think the narrative is going to be Jameis. Winston screwed up but book Jamieson has got a broken thumb and both of his pro double wide receivers were out and I really think not that any of those interceptions were necessarily the receivers fault. But I think that Mike Evans and Chris God win kind of insulate him from those kind of plays in a normal game and also the three long bomb touchdowns that are receivers. It looked like Jameson. Threw threw him over. The One pyramid bounced of right off his hand right. He only needs one handed. China Canton Evans at Godwin would've caught those passes right now. That's that's our wide receiver. One is out wide receiver to is out. But I'm going to say this Pearman is awesome. Some of those catches were incredible. I think I counted three. Three of them were like yeah. He didn't catch that. I was inbound. Right never looks like he's inbound. What he's got these twinkle toes as clumsy as he is when he's falling? He's still manages logistic at his feet. inbounds incredible Takkula catches not as great as well as Mike Williams used to be those that was his bread and butter. Was that toe-tapping. So pyramid doesn't quite look like that but I don't really care how you look as long as you're making the catch to the sideline because Mike Evans isn't not really that kind of receiver tapper. God One is kind of kind of. He's he's better at the yard after the catch and when he's getting hit I think that's kind of his fourteen. We got to physical receiving possession. Receivers paramedic great. I was really really hats off to Helmi worried me. At first I was like. Oh my gosh one hundred two yards this game receptions twelve targets so he did miss five the so much to talk about this game so much okay number one. Let's get to this stands. Were Empty Komo bug. Fans Kinda section was fall as the lower section Nen data section above that there was nobody there only in the end zones now. They have their seat painted red in the lower sections and the upper sections. So it's really hard hard to tell how full they are but you can see in the club level with those gray seats. It was bars. I would say stadium. was maybe half full to we gotta do better. We gotta do better as fans times on the crowd gotten really loud especially some of the bullshit wrath calls you could hear them on. The broadcast over crowd was into into and that was a great game. Even though now we're into the not just talking about how exciting is when it all comes down to it like we say this this is about entertainment and we gained tens of thousands of fans today because we were a national. This was nationally broadcast. We will only dame on at one o'clock a lot of people watch this game. A lot of people win. This is exciting football. This is exciting and it had implications on the national stage because of their playoff playoff implications. Yes for everybody upset that we lost today. Think of it this way okay. We didn't have anything to fight for but we still have went out there and put a good product on the field. We are very entertaining. Won't we did do is damage significantly the playoff chances for the Tennessee. Titans who beat as early in the air who shouldn't shouldn't have so it was like a kick in the nuts two titans all you texting Tennessee. Titans fans out there. Yeah there you go so think of it that way it was entertaining game and we damaged an enemy and despite Janus throwing interceptions one six six. He threw three hundred and thirty five yards. His quarterback rating was forty six point eight. So not the best showing by him but Shawn John Watson didn't do much better. He had one hundred and eighty four yards. Was Nine thousand. Nine hundred thirty two had one interception zero touchdowns and was sacked five times. I'm still a board. That's horrible defense. You've got a hand. Applaud are different or defense was outstanding such again game by them and there were playmakers. They made plays an important times. We needed the ball back. They gave it to us. James Rose and interception and we need a stop from the defense and they gave it to us. They gave us twenty eight seconds left. gave us the offense every opportunity. Yes Jamal Deen. Learn how to catch the ball today. Beautiful interception he would. He'd had five interceptions on the year if he had good hands. He's got homeland. Maybe paramount can work work with them but yes our secondary was great. Our defensive line was fantastic. Fantastic You know you say we got five. Six three of them. Were from J. P.. Oh my gosh. And we contained the Shawn Watson that was. That was what I was worried about. He was still their leading rusher but the only had thirty seven yards. I mean they have sixty eight yards total rushing with a mobile quarterback. Yeah no did dead. JP just wonderful Van Sou did their job spectacularly Nassar had a sack. Yes but J. J. p. p. was just lights out he was. He was dominating their whole game plan their players. Everything as one play in particular where I saw him talking. Going to Nacho and you can see moving his arms and I was thinking all of their coordinate and some probably going to be a stunt. Well it wasn't a stunt in the UN really call it a stunt JP went to the inside and they coordinated to open up a hole. So the Shawn Watson thought he had a running late and he did and JP was right there behind kind of just fell on top of it was it was beautiful. I was like that. That was some pro level elite level stuff right there. JV got to give it up to one nice game. And they held the during Hopkins to twenty three yards that he had five catches. Wow unreal unreal. Yeah yeah the the key to the game was the turnovers office. We gave up too many turnovers boy. Here's here's what I say. Yes we lost this game but Houston did perfectly undercutting winstons out routes it was. It was great on their port. They got two interceptions off of it. I think we only had one complete outright this whole game and that's Winston's bread and butter so hands. Tam's up for Tennessee. Titans Coaching Texans. You know what screw the AFC the bite me they all your same NFL racist be. I was impressed with they did that. So hats off to them would say hands up hats off to them for that very impressive for me. I think the play of the game was that camera embrace drop. Oh I was just going to talk about okay. I wrote in my notes. I'm like everything on James Right now. It's seven eleven in the fourth fourth corner. His scores Twenty three twenty. We're only down by three. We just need James says driving down the field run. The time off the clock score a touchdown it's over. He's totally incapable. That we've seen it before and it starts with a near Dhari fumble on the punt return and that it Kinda bounced off the ground and then he caught it and Rian with it. So why don't we have Dr Returning punts now. No yeah but he gets to the nineteen so that was mitigate him James. Get some pressure but makes good decisions. There's a pass down fee all but there's a defender in the way you said it was about pass that. OJ Had to slow down. Catch at defender's helmet right. So this drive is kind of hot or cold more more than Colin I think but then pair airman gets a really nice catch than rogue at the NFL and its fourth and one four three after the T. f. l.. And we need this first down and we pass it to break. He's right there at the down line. He would have had had he caught it and he just dropped it. There is no pressure on flat. Let out dropped his job debt. If disappointed me they are tight ends. We're not more involved in this game. We had talked about going into this view. They were open but they they were dropping balls left and right. I'd love to see their targets. Yeah Day Howard had three receptions on seven targets for forty six yards cody macelroy. So Roy caught one pass. Yeah Cambridge Bright. Had Five targets with only two receptions so are tied Ainsworth even catching it at a fifty percent rate. It's horrible and still after that drive after that night to the chest. That was a tough on. After that punch to the gut the defense still forced to stop yes and gave us the ball back. Great minutes left in what happens. James Winston throws an interception interception. Here's the takeaway. We just went up against the Division leader the AFC went toe to toe with him. Which we've done in a lot of games? Yeah yeah it'll comes to mind and that's what I'm saying we made if you just look at Houston's performance irrespective of the box performance like their offense did circle high flying offense. They're up in the top ten. We're channels running and receiving our team is if you look. Gad's the biggest predictor of if you WANNA get into stats which toll going to throw this out. There supports argument the biggest after sure. The biggest predictor of improvement from one year to the next is the amount of close games one score less and we're having close games against really good team. Yeah so that's a good sign that we're going to do really well next year. I was really impressed with bill. Bryan's coaching tale was pretty good. It was good good. I've always thought for the last few years like he's kind of on the bubble but now I've never been impressed with his coach more skill on his players right. Jj Watt aww there and cloudy Davis wisdom through a interception Peru. Pick six on his first pass. The game was that was too much you can throw interceptions game with the score really hurts us. Don't let them score. That's the problem. That's what really killed us. Had he just got in the interception without the touchdown hours okay. I today undercut on his win. His IPAD. You know he's GonNa do it because let's pick his first fifteen plays as and Janus loves AL route. So he's always got some in. They're always gonNA. Yeah you can count on them and I say this Tamale all the time I mean it makes me furious. You've never throw to the outside outside when you're that close to your end zone effort. It's just asking for picnics and sure enough outside pigs ex. It's like what are you doing. Hello I threw it. Although it wasn't James says worst game. I don't think because we were there. We had every opportunity to win it. We were within three. Oh this this was a shootout we were. We were toe to toe with these guys and we one if we want. I love these where you're like. You know they they want technically better. Hey here's what I'm saying. Here's our excuse me broken hand on a quarterback both of our receivers L. and it's not just like any receivers saw Tennessee. Titans lost their two starters. Neither two of the best receivers in the League if the so he's comfortable with and known for years. How many is were catching balls at Janus didn't play with last year vizier? I'm in high man. And Cody Macelroy. That tight end. John signed this week just just signed him. He goes there and catches a pass. He's got a thirty yards per catch average rejoice in front of all for ten especially. He's at the top of the last two touchdowns right now her was gonna be pigging the famous for the job. I will say that I underestimated their defense. If anything we could say we were wrong about their secondary but I don't think it was their secondary stepped up any more than it just. We had excuses. I mentioned earlier broken hand. Jim's listen was doing some ugly malls they were just overthrows. He couldn't look like he couldn't get a grip on the ball. He was put too much touch on them at times and they were wobbly. What a weird thing on the outside of his gloved to kind of brace it fitting weird you said somebody had the photo show the job? That was their jhom. The graphic they put up. Here's with him spreads but there was no. I don't know anyway look. We're out of the playoffs if anything this helps us as far as draft position is concerned. We don't care about which we don't but if you WanNa make yourself feel better eh. But the bigger thing to me is the fans we garnered this week. A lot of people watching this game when I'm really liked the buccaneers. That's fun football. Yeah A- and might help are getting more prime time games next year. I think so because I do try to gauge you is going to be. WHO's an up and coming coming team? And they will put them on similar primetime game they want eyeballs. It doesn't matter if you're the Cleveland browns. If you're losing every five games or losing five out of four. I don't know there's a math or someone if you're losing a lot of games it doesn't matter if you're entertaining. They WanNa put you on TV because they know people want to watch stuff this one thing with the Patriots Trias Patriots have been dominant for twenty years. They're born to what they are wearing a fourth quarter last five minutes then our exciting usually during during the gamers boring football well. They don't really have that many players who are consistently CNN players like. They're running backs. One running Mac might have a one hundred yard game aiming the next week he barely even plays until you play fantasy football. I never take New England running back for ever ever like Seattle all in Green Bay. I don't take green bay receivers either because Iran gets pissy with them and then stops throwing to hope is. It's the weirdest thing about this game. was there was an an rappaport report that came out. Today that said that the bucks have decided tapering Damis back. Next season is say inside the organization him and Never Dame has to have a game that was not one of his best where he throws the pick-6 immediately. That was a little surprising. I don't know if the national attention or the pressure of being on the national stage is too much for him. I'm yeah I'm throwing that out there. That's one thing that bothered me when we drafted Winston is. He's not good under the spotlight. Yeah he seems to crumble which might be why he does so well on the round not having the yeah the fanfare assure that Bozo. Yeah Ronald Jones forty nine yard run today and I was sweet again one. Yeah you everyone Matt Game with a blocked field goal now that was unfortunate and then he got hit or he went in for the head trying the tag team. Yeah go oh kicker is out there trying to tackle dudes. He didn't look like he took it to you while he was shocked. I tackle he's probably ever made into the line out. The patted handed him on the shoulder. Got So much in this game so much in this game. The fumble forced by Levada. David picked up by Devin like that. And I love that. Devon has has an eye for that did you notice Levante. David has been wearing the green dot on his helmet. I know I sweared Devon White was wearing at the beginning in your yeah. They said they were going to have him on. The Mike was asked about that. Can't wait to hear Bruce. Arians press conference. We haven't heard yet it'll be at the end of the podcast. It's already already been put up a probe into afterwards paranoid. Some of those catches were just some of those incomplete so I was like what are you doing. It bounced right office offers end. Yeah he's your other hand you got two of them but still even after the two interceptions in the blocked field goal. They were only up by seven. The point was ten to three. I was like ops for sure we got this game. I mean if they can only score ten points on two interceptions in a blocked field goal. They were certainly the more discipline team that it'd make any mistake right because right after that Lante David forced fumble picked up by Devin White. Winston threw an interception the very next book right. So it's like we couldn't capitalize on Yeah we can't make a mistake to mistakes and then Barbara fumbled. Oh my gosh convincing him for the rest of the day after now well. It's good to see some consistency as far zachos because they pulled roggio earlier in the year for missing a blitz pick up now. That Payton has had a problem with fumbles but Roselle was definitely more productive more dynamic. That's for sure. Kappa was knocked out in the second quarter for about a series that he came back with about three minutes left. We went into the half thirteen. Thirteen law let crap seventeen seventy yet. I got thirteen thirteen written during more. We need to start calling this instead of the incident. UNCAST that drunk kid. The Star of the fourth quarter. The score was twenty two twenty so it had the second going into the half it had to have been twenty two twenty. Yeah anyhow anyhow the point where we re there's the score right there on. ESPN in the first quarter and they had ten in the second quarter. They had seven seventeen points so that must've been later in the fourth quarter but yeah so we were tied seventeen. Seventeen going into the hands of my point being that the we were toe-to-toe with these guys all the way through this. Yeah despite starting out Ellen. Ten with all the mistakes we we would have just cut down on half the mistake right and immediate pick six and then in another almost pick six. I was called that for a penalty but they still ended scoring off of that but none of them. None of these mistakes. Would you go come on. Not Again Again Winston. All his interceptions right because he still rallied in almost came back up by the second. If Brain Clark that fourth-down impaired we would have probably tied this game minimum minimum foul hurt. You don't expect to drop now so we can't be too mad at him for that and he's he's he's done planning for this team and it wasn't just that mistake but it was a mistake. That kinda sealed it for us and that was that was the play right after Perriman when called beautiful sideline parents. Yeah one of the many he had today coming off the field Janus kind of had the deer in the headlights. Luck and then JP goes out there on defense three facts and just got sacked to stop Il. We got the ball back with About a minute minute one Sunday yes para with another great catch and then Wednesday thousand interception that outright undercut that was just the killed us with that. So you gotta you gotTa applaud him. Whether it was the cornerbacks figured it out or the coaching because it was four. Different defenders Scott interceptions breath and almost all of them I would say winston should not have thrown the ball but that's Winston and it's a good way to knock him off his game when he gets turnovers like like that he can. That can kind of set the tone for the whole game with him will. It has recently because he's thrown four interceptions in his last five opening drive. That's trail hid. We've won so it's just repeated ones you can later in the game seem to really cripple us. But Hey I'm I'm proud tale. There ain't no texans fan can walk around and said we kicked your ass what they can do as long as I say your game. Yeah they know they know we were the better team. mm-hmm we shot ourselves in the foot. They were sweating to that whole game right up to the lessons and hey that's why they're going to. The playoffs led into a playoff team rather yet do Tennessee titans no screaming. We should have won that game outright. They'll suck well the best that we can unfinished is eight eight snow three games up from last year. I don't care what you say. This is an awesome team is a fun team in the south. Zucchini can go toe to toe with anybody in the league. We got a lot of help for the future. NEXT SEASON IS GONNA be awesome. I'm worried about this off season. Man We got so many players that could go you leave. Yeah but I think enough want to stay slow to these guys. They like the coach so I think that helps a lot when you have players that have gone in and they want to be there and you know we have L. L. last year. Who took a pay cut to stay very well and he's done very well? So if you guys like that in your locking locker room willing to do that and they wanna stay. Maybe they'll make it work not having an income tax in Florida Florida helps to weather. Plus I have faith and Jason Light to do it to get it done. I think that he deserves a lot of props for you can look. He gives a lot of grief look at our secondary who he was ridiculed for. These draft picks taken three defensive backs right in a row we have the all new secondary and then. Ba Says Oh look our secondary's totally fixed and they didn't do so great through the first half of the season which you gotta handed the light for that to which he's he doesn't have a problem doing if you don't perform boom the cut he cut he's cut. How many first rounders allot yellow spence? burn earnhardt the second round. I think he was high up there though. Not Not a player that you expect to be cut out right like that. Like a big pick Eric and he had a he got a Lotta Shit for too so he doesn't have a lot of pride. Seems Governor six skin neither way but finding finding these defensive backs who have really come into their own. This season idea they were knocking balls down. Lifted Sean Murphy. Bunting he sat there there. Were what six pass defense downtown Sioux had one we had five. TSL's AFL's and five sacks. She's outrageous yes and this is something I learned from. This Yada is never thought about it before but tackles for loss of the same as the sack. And we've we've had over twenty in the past three Games Vantera Davies at those. David was the ball to the kids. Still say that anymore on born now wouldn't even know what you're talking probably call. He said 'em all I wanNA give some props to Jerry Stewart to. He showed up last game. Just popped up by now nowhere and last game. He almost got that interception but they hit the ground. Although I didn't agree with that call because you couldn't see them as Allie turnover. And then today he showed up he had a pass defendant so he he seems like a service of all guy bath there to give us some DEPP's rotation he's not back there. He's only getting snaps game when he's making plays as the first time in in a long time that I am so excited when our defense gets on the field. I don't remember ever feeling like this. Like maybe during Xiang but then the pass defense was atrocious. It didn't really matter. Even though the run defense was so good but they're just fun to watch it. We have so many playmakers you just never know who is going to make the next play anybody anybody on our on our defensive line to make a plate anytime linebacker. Same thing like l'amante force fumbles Devon White picking them mop running back and then the second area interception or a good pass defense then balls. Dan tippin balls bunting had another tip today blitz listening with really impressive. How far the team has come? We did a great job containing Shawn Watson. Really really great. He did have a couple where he's squeak down there. Expect that to the hell. That's what he's so good at. It was such a Fun Game Bird Fun. I really like back to the announcers they were. I mean he sees a lot of games. He wanted football. He has seen a lot of on. I was watching watching this radio show. I didn't even know he had. I knew we had a show but it was on a youtube. Think in man he was dead serious. I've always seen him as the more jocular. You can sit around. Yeah Yeah when he runs that forty yard dash every here for stages. Yeah but he was dead serious deflect thirty minutes. It was kind of weird I think that his father just passed because he brought it up on on the show so that might be but I don't watch the show regular regularly. I just saw it on twitter. This game had some interesting stats in it. We're talking about that earlier. Levonne David had ten tackles on the game putting him at nine hundred and ninety nine for his Co. physicist par Gregg Allman will be the sixth active. NFL Sal player with a thousand. Wow next week wow sell awesome. He sounds underrated criminally underrated. Although he he did have that fourteen caught at long bomb on David. David was right away. I don't even know each. I sent a half down flow. Incredible that he kept up with a wide receiver. That far downfield. Our team is really good. This is a really good football team because imagine this strides. We can make an off season of this seems to have so many pieces in place that we're going to upgrade some things but they're not necessarily -sarily a huge glaring need now what needs to be upgraded really serious some more depth to add offensive line. I think maybe draft somebody develop up a guy like kind of like a kappa. I agree with that running back. I think you could upgrade Helena. You know I'm a big fan of running backs are made by offense and live the. There's been very few running backs I've seen that have gone from good offensive line teams to bat offense teams and done well to me. It says that offense of lines make running in which was weird because in the preseason. We thought they're run blocking spectacular and the pass protection gone awful uh-huh flip flopped too. It really did. I felt Donald Smith. Demar Dotson I thought the whole offensive line play great. I haven't seen the game film yet but I think that I didn't see too many mistakes as far as that's concerned. Yeah James Hat all day Max air. How many sex did he get? I think three two or three three three. Yeah for only six yards a lot of those James Winston sacks to runs out of the pocket and gets caught from Henderson today. James Surpassed Dan Marino from the second most passing yards through five seasons. What's number one Peyton manning with how many twenty thousand six hundred eighteen eighteen? How far does James have to go to beat the? I can't remember. I don't think he's going to be that. This season two thousand yards. We can get five thousand dollars seventy. It's not five thousand years now I I. It was on a graphic somewhere but I don't know where it is. Christmas is coming. Up is really a win for Christmas. Ask no I'm I'm proud of this game. I'm proud of it. Yeah it it it hurts to lose especially when you know. You're the better team. Could you imagine if we would add evans or Godwin or both of them. That would have been another three or four catches right there. Yeah that would've made a difference. made a difference came bright catching it pass for. The camp right doesn't drop passes essence. He went to a spill. Though where you had like four job to work with these titans in the off season. What are they doing with them? I don't know I don't know that that's what I'm saying. They need to get that Hammer Hammer. Now on the coaching staff needs to figure out what their day we've got. They've really got incorporated in the game. I mean I give bar left. which a ton of props was a couple? A couple of weeks ago. His game plan was just perfect. Say the Jaguars. I think it was gone. I don't think I've ever seen that many over receiver since we played Chicago couple years ago but the tight tight ends of gotta be utilized or or traded. Because they're not bad blocking tight ends although Jay Howard I would say he's a little bit below average average blitzer great receiving tidings other than the fact that they couldn't catch a damn ball today. I don't know what I'm talking about are. Are They GonNa Anything Paper Argon okay. I'll say that also key to lose in the game today was our tight ends. You know why we're GonNa say that stepped up. Yes exactly but more than that is because I predicted that would have. It'd be the key to the game the game and they didn't do it and I'm going to say that about Oj Howard. I'd like go out. I really do. I really really really really liked how coder utilize town especially with those Niki. Sneaky onion what their calls Passes and we. We've done it a couple times this year. And he's done a really good with him where he goes down the line block in and shoots out towards the left whatever but this year. OJ Howard has really fallen now. I'm GONNA think we have not utilizing as much as properly as we should have. But when he's got his opportunities he's failed so you know I'm going to say oh. Jay Howard is not lived up to this year's expectations and you can put a little bit on him and a little bit on the catching staff. One thing I like about this coaching staff though is he knows next year he could lose his job. This coaching staff does not care where you were drafted. What's your role on? The team. Is How long you been here if you don't perform you're out if fumble guess what you're not getting the ball anymore. MSN Blitz pick-up. You Ain't getting the ball anymore. I can't think of anything where the people accountable I know. Like even Vernon hargraves obviously obviously did not one of these special teams. So what do they do. They reward him by taking him off. Specialty in could point psychology. What Yeah No? I like this team. Like like him like him a lot. I don't see a lot that needs to be improved. As a matter of fact I'd be happy of this. Exact team came back next year. You're exactly giants game. Missed by foot a literal foot a foot kick the ball and the ball. That was a foot away from going into the field goal. The thing is Tennessee. One less turnover one less turnover. We gave them so much we gave them so much. And that's what happened this game too bright. Yeah and and look at it. It was a very close game all it to the like the ice that we liked to be generous with the other team in spot them. If you points fourteen or seventeen I think he said seventeen points. Yeah that's what we're going to get under control. We lead the League in points scored off of turnovers and points allowing off turnovers. So you gotTA hands ended up to our defense man. Those guys there's every every turnover was a detriment to our defense they were they were put in bad situations. I five times today. Yeah three of those times it really really really stepped up well and the one time the first time they didn't get on the field with no novel screw right. That's five times eight held director. I like this team excited about you. Know what's sad. Here's what's sad. Really game laughed But we're going to be watching the series all you all offseason. Yeah we're going to watch this team because we'll watch every two or three days where like let's watch some football take off season so we'll watch go. Do it like four hours straight at convinced games. We'll get like five games in all seasons. Weren't we should do that. We're going to art square predictions. Were not on point that we did predict that to be a close game. That's how I felt. I was like Gosh. We're right on point with her. How we felt this game I was GONNA go? I predict at thirty two twenty nine bucks and you predicted thirty. Twenty eight bucks a final score twenty three to twenty. There weren't as many points let's put out but it was still close one with the big thing to take away from that is we predicted a close game. This is a close game against one of the AFC's best premier routines and honestly everybody to watch that. No we were the better team. Yeah you'd Texas fans got to admit you know I don't know. Are you a better team. If you're turning the ball over four times Texas bands can say they foreclose turnovers but buccaneer fans now van. Truce Fed that that James High showed up. Yeah but there were points where he almost brought us back so it complete meltdown. Lie Him. I don't guess I I don't fall off and he goes out there in the burqa finger. Yeah broken finger. He had orthopedics on his mom so close. It was twenty three to tune in every team goes through this. I'm not giving US excuses as to why we lost the game. I just pointing out why we lost the game. Number one wherever super outnumber too wide receiver out quarterback Phil and ball has broken thumb. And we still stay a toe to toe. Our defense incredible incredible. They stepped up. This is what we talked about. 'cause Winston couldn't play effectively. They stepped up and took his is game. took the handed it to James to win. The game gave him multiple opportunities to record in. Yeah good opportunities to I was really surprised. Arise Bhai that ending thirty thirty nine seconds left Janus check down. I was like what are you doing right in the SEC. With instead of throwing a bomb but then he throws another check down check down stuck in his head now. I mean it's not a bad thing but right we're trying to win the game at the last second yeah. We needed a hail Mary. In a Mike Evans to Burbano. Could Bitch fab five yards out about caught it awkwardly. He looks like where have you seen. The baby drafts when they're born when they're trying to stand up when they fall out limbs everywhere like four inbound you like how many lives you got. I like him I like him and and midway through the season where like. He's a bomb he didn't he was given up on route to look like now not extended for plays trying to do that. One handed. It did that today. That pissed me off touchdown. He wanted to win hand. I love the teams resiliency. Though it seems like everybody on the team kind of has a story like that not like Damon. Wayans show up for a while. Kevin was having problems. In White's Jay Howard Watch prize horse died Santa. That was on look at him. He's out there kicking. But that's resiliency. Yeah Jack what you were saying. The secondary getting a bad rap for weeks first half of the season taken a ton of flak. Oh Yeah but right but to be able to make corrections to get better to not be discouraged my criticism. The you're getting that is so huge your skill level not to doubt yourself. They overcame the media and the fans both crapping on on. And they're young back there Resiliency we're talking about James Wisdom throw an interception a pick six a pick six to start the game. How many times have we seen that this year and I'm confident were still GonNa win? We know that we can put up some points now. 'cause you know that he can't match that that's resiliency we punch in the face. We don't care we're coming back out there we're GONNA punch as we slug it out all the way through. He don't WanNA kicked our asses here in New Orleans. Let's the clothes. Yes New Orleans. The Second Carolina game we got. We got hit excuse about the London so Helga with Taliban they wasn't kicking it wasn't asking for in relative sense for the way. The buccaneers have been playing. But it hasn't been a forty two ZIP ZIP right now. We haven't had three that. We have not had that at all. And we stayed Toe to toe to San Francisco New Orleans Texans Seattle again and Seattle the titans. Yeah No. I'm fucked titans. Stay with them. And they're they're a good football football team very Indianapolis we ten point deficit to start the game. We're a resilient team. Nothing hurts us and we're like Teflon bounces right off of us us like every time we're on the field both offense defense. I'm not saying special teams yet. They've really disappointed. medi-share Although Matt Ryan Are Not Miriam Ryan Smith Twenty nine changed. Our special teams are special teams. Not really good. But it was really bad at the beginning year but he came back automatically flipped lipid and he's really made it an above average special teams but still overall knob in turn. Game is not great so maybe we could upgrade their are and that anyone losing their job it just means bringing someone in that I can see the specialist that can do something else like wide receivers only like a four string something like that but get a specialist. Yeah was IT specialists out there now. Is that a thing teams do I don't think so anymore right. Because because they're so special teams and so on offense heavy guy there is one thing on special teams that are the bright spot besides Ryan Smith and that is Bradley opinion today he marked the most touchback in a season. NFL history. WHOA really? Yeah very underrated. Deborah thought about to goodstuff goodstuff. Okay so we've got at those crippled offense that's crippled and that's not an excuse as to why we lost or anything like that 'cause all teams go through this crap but it shows what what was the word you used resiliency. Our defense held the Shawn Watson hundred and eighty four yards zero touchdowns one interception interception five sacks a sixty two point five passer rating. He had thirty seven yards rushing on seven attempts. Our defense defense. Our defense gets gameball today. JP had three sacks and not just three six three qualities sacks that matter if that matter crucial time sacks wchs five pass defenses. We're setting records whip past offenses us. Swear to fumbles one recovered. That was beautiful by our Tandel Bob. The forty five fifty four five four four four five four five five four. Yes six quarterback what about hits five six five tackles for loss so mathematically that's ten sacks that's football mass football no mass. I'm very encouraged by everything I've seen even with James throwing interceptions on overdrive. I pass their intercession six but making pick twelve plug it. We're GONNA spot you're seventeen points. Yeah exactly we gave them seventeen points. They only scored twenty three. The whole game mm-hmm we take off so their offense basically only scored six points. We take the ball we win the coin. Toss and we take it just to give them pointing in. This is where we can make this handicap handicap. That's what we should call it handicap. Yeah Yeah we don't win all coin. Toss we give them a handicap they. I'm happy with that. I like I like a different team and Vernon Hargreaves. Where was he on? Flopping around he did have three tackles and one T. F. L. Oscar him but I don't remember any of them I don't either. I don't even remember seeing him. Dan Maybe we blacked up party. Probably I just totally ignored all the numbers on their jerseys. And so I'm excited to see what Bruce Arians has to say with that what we're going to wrap this up. If you want to hang out and listen to Bruce Arians Post game press conference find out what he's gotTa say always good information a lot Donovan contradicts what we say but the vast majority of it is spot on. It's one of the reasons why I like. He confirmed my bias exactly. It was a good team win. I think we should hold our heads up. High definitely enjoy air football on Sunday. I WANNA go out like this proud at the end of the season. Now we have an opportunity opportunity to a host and Lana and beat the shit out of them in our stadium was going to be fun. Would you take a lot of Pinot frustration out on. We're GONNA end a lot of careers next week. Probably Queens for sure. Yeah I think so so there we are beat up and they play the Jaguars to tomorrow so they might have an easy win. Ride that momentum but we have a loss where we should have won so many that'll be motivating on the buck sign don O.. After the results of next week we'll make up our minds on that. All right. That's GonNa wrap it up whereas hang out for the Bruce Areas Post game press conference if he would like if not to next time. Gal lacks big on Jameson. Picks today the first one squatter squadron route. You Know Justin. He's run out. Ratna guy squatted on but Last one same thing but you just can't have them you can't have that many Going to the right guys. Those guys got to win too. You know we've been winning one on one. He's used to guys when they one on one when he when he reads it that properly and when it went but into the NFL network report this morning. The teams already decided to bring James Back with the no decision on any player. We don't make those decisions to like season so coach fourth down play. There's nobody more money than Cameron brain on these dropped in two years the most surprised guy dropping the probably I think he was probably more surprised. You know by field goal range and got a chance to win the game so that was. That was a big one big one. We had. We had touchdowns wide open fingertips all day two touchdowns late in the first half there is high enough and then only three points in the second half. Is there anything they did to the justice offense in check. Well we turned it back over. You know. So it's it's just a matter of field position now there was no. There's no big changes inches receiver with all the turnovers. Your defense kept giving you a chance after chance to stay in the game making big plays getting takeaways of their own. What can you say about the way they play defense played? They play winning football day. A special teams in offense did not You know we start on a seventeen yard line about every kickoff guys just not getting their man block so tough field position. Turnovers are the story but we still we got. OJ For touchdown to win the game office fingertips. We had pressured in the end zone. Just difference in playing in a dome implying. Playing outside in the Wind Bruce Most with Chris and Mike Out of those one batch that we win all the time was with guys. That aren't quite there as good as coach. Kabul's proudly emphasized all week Dole. That number four number four. He just that good of an athlete late any yeah. Yeah and then we let him out a couple of times especially to his right and and that was the planet not to let him out to his right but we we try to get some Saxon. He beat US appreciate it a fourth and one they. You're about eight minutes to play. You took the field goal to to ties or any thought to any conversation to play so So we kicked failed right and then on that four thousand late you had a third one play after the pyramid catch and look like Kinda rush the plate. In the line of scrimmage by design or by by design and end bidding blocked by presenting some of a few since kickoffs de down to the one yard lounge. That would you like seen Dora let that bog in the end zone rather than bring. No you can't take a chance to let it hit the ground bounds forward. You know he's got a field up all in the one. That is Greg King. But really poor blocking coaches say. You didn't get understatement. The challenge is an understatement. That had to be a fumbled it. Yeah but it was ruled dead forward Progress I challenge and you going back and forth officials on on pass interference all year but that that call with would look into the face guarding Mary. Did they give you a reason for. Why now wasn't burnt that the ball and and he got their same time? I must have been looking at different tape than me Bruce. Last week James threw the ball well really well and accurately with the glove you think is more of the wind today. Yeah it's different. Yeah because it was a nice to see Ronald Jones finally break a big run Yeah Yeah we've needed. And he was. He was pretty solid all day in receiving game. And and running brisk and you coming under the pyramid. Didn't in the end zone. said he made several big catches. You know I thought he was better games. You know was is open with miss him a couple of times but yeah big. Big third down plays and He's a heck of a player who is the key to keeping Hopkins and making him a non factor much uh-huh did Carson did a great job on Carl's long. He's physical and they're beating each other up pretty good weeks ago. You said next man up just catch the Damn Ball. Aw That's pretty much it and that's all that's bad it's all cody mcelroy. Did it now. You GotTa Chats Hell play got us back in the game. I do you guys put this one behind you quickly to carry momentum. You've had coming into this week and we do because you know we don't want to go out. This team is not losers you know we want to win this last game. KGO Eight and eight and bill from their pre teen said some struggles catching the ball. But that was an element interception. Yeah he's worked hard at it. He's He's before practice after practice. Always somebody throw ball great interception versus general. Just losing a game like this defense place so while a lot of people played well and it's it's pretty much on four interceptions. How do you how do you square that with your team? And just how do you look at it overall. Same Guy threw four touchdowns last week. You know he throw a couple touchdowns AH tight for us. And the last one which was a poor decision but that We had our chances. This is to win. So it's a team game one minute game. He didn't he didn't lose a game. He didn't help us win the game. Though it'd be in the year you wanted James to me better. Decisions changes called that one of the season. Have you seen that decision. Making improving over the year still need to get drastic. We'd better go it's been it's been better and better each week There are still some the tr- trust guy sometimes and The Trust Them More Night Koji looks like the one thing. James Really has to work on his manipulating defense in his eyes. And you say no not at all he he actually does it too much. He tries to look safety's off too much. It costs him a couple completions where he's looking offense to getting is on the phone to.

01/22: TE Reflections and More 2019 Notes (Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from CBS. Sports got mail us at Fantasy Football Ed. CBS I dot Com it is time to dominate your fantasy league of of Chaney and he was it's not so bad in two thousand nineteen. The Big Three. Were very good though. They weren't as good as they were in two thousand eighteen we had mark Andrews. Darren Waller Verge Awesome. Hooper Cata career career season. Tyler Hake beat had five hundred twenty two yards in his last five games. So it's tight end good all of a sudden we will bring in Keith coming. Listen Ben Gretch to discuss I have Adebayo Walk Fantasy football today here on Wednesday and good morning to heath and Ben have you guys been. You're in the same room bends in Fort Lauderdale in the same office Have you been exchanging projections all morning. I've been looking. I've been bugging been like every ten to fifteen minutes with some random factoid that I discovered during the process and the most recent one was a lot of fun I think you will enjoy it There have been twenty three running backs to have at least eighteen rushing touchdowns in a single season. Adam gazes last three offenses have combined for seventeen rushing touchdowns downs combined football team. That just won running back the whole team. I think I can find another funny stat. What about dolphins running backs which is partially Adam gays? So I'M GONNA go ahead and find that while you guys check go ahead. Well I mean he said he he's been bugging me all all the last couple of days but I've been enjoying these old nuggets. I mean that is an awesome one. They've averaged under six rushing touchdowns as a team per year over the last three years and he's been on two different different teams but that is incredibly bad. Yeah I mean that's just really really bad at route. It okay so this is all. It was obviously about the Miami hurricanes who got a transfer transfer quarterback derek king who's a dual threat quarterback from Houston And this is one of the Miami Herald how elusive is king. Is a runner consider. He forced eight. Miss Tackles and a loss to Washington state last season as perspective dolphins running back Caitlyn Balaj forced six. Six missed tackles all season for six. Yeah I question that it's all right. Where yeah where we sell it? Let's talk about tight. Edgier guys that is the topic does your but I did want to read a few emails I This could be real quick. Do you think tight end is. It's better than ever going into two thousand twenty I. I don't think I I buy that. I think I think it had a resurgent year. You noted that the top ones came back Part of the reason they came back twenty. Eighteen was a was a pretty historic year for titans. George biddle broke the all time yardage record right and I think Kelsey was right behind him and did Erz. Also set the Alzheimer Receptions Record for titans like yeah I think those are those are all correct ads. The all three of those guys had great years until eighteen. They were destined to come back a little bit in two thousand nineteen they still. We're all very good. And we got new Mark Andrews and Dan Waller coming up from the the later rounds of fantasy drafts. But I still don't know that I would say that it's the best it's ever been. I don't we don't know and that's one of the things about doing projections now. It's too early to do it but you realize how much we don't know. And we don't know where Eric Lebron's going going to play this year. Who the colts? If the colts only have jacked oil tied in that might make him interesting. We don't know if Austin Hooper is going back to the Atlanta Falcons. We don't know if Greg Olsen Delaney Walker Jimmy. My Grandma's GonNa come back or if they're going to open the door for young tight ends. That are exciting. We don't know how the rams are gonNA measure or handle things with Everett and tyler. Higby so I I do feel more more comfortable with it and I think that there is more upside coming for sure. I'm not sure that upsides quite going to be ready in twenty twenty. It's not just that rookie. Tight ends are bad. Generally like second year tight ends aren't very good. Sometimes third year tight ends are quite good and they have a three year stretch and then they're too old to play tight end Yeah well this is kind of amazing. Just think about this travis. Kelsey has been the number one tight. NPR four straight seasons seasons. That's pretty remarkable. He's been number one in non PR three of the last four seasons at number two in the other season behind Rob Gronkowski. So you just think about that something else and I think I said earlier that I've pretty much decided travis. Kelsey is going to be in my first round whenever the rankings are done you you look at the last three seasons. He's been a top ten running back in a top ten wide receiver each of the past three seasons as well so when you consider for how bad the bottom of Titan has been worth. I think he's definitely been worth of her shopping. Okay so let me let me throw out a theory here to something I was thinking of and and tell me you tell me how you feel about this right so the league winners in fantasy when you when you sit there and you say oh I want my league and people say oh you must have had Christian. McCaffrey must have Michael Michael Thomas. You must have had Lamar Jackson and we pretty much never say that about a tight end. I mean the absolute best that you're GONNA get from tight end. That wasn't rob. Gronkowski is probably like a running back eight wide receiver. Eight something like that. So it's not to say you can't win if you drive Travis Kelsey but when you think about like the running backs that might go around Travis Kelsey they are all going to. Have you know elite stop side. They're all going to have that ability to take that delvin Cook Leap Right. So I could make a case that based on just upside upside League winning league dominating unbelievable player Upside Travis. Kelsey shouldn't be a first round pick and maybe he shouldn't even be a second round pick because his best. This case scenario is worse than the best case scenario of a lot of guys that are gonNA go behind him. That's just wrong. So like maybe twenty twenty nineteen. There wasn't really league-winning winning upside two thousand eighteen I don't have the numbers but the vast majority of winning leagues had arts or Kelsey or kettle. They were well foreign above. And then if you go back a few years the Great Rob Gronkowski seasons of the Great Jimmy. Graham seasons those were all very much league winning tight end seasons that I mean there's those outliers I uh-huh breakout is an outlier like you. You have to have an outlier to have a league winning season otherwise it wouldn't be a league winning season I guess so but two thousand eighteen. Those three tight ends did stuff that we just have never seen before and we knew it wasn't going to happen again and it didn't happen again and then I don't know if you can really call anyone Rob Rob Gronkowski he you know he's Rob Gronkowski. I was going to say it's kind of the point because titans of position where there's not always a lot of really really consistent production right because a lot of them aren't consistently receivers and then when you do get a really great season it is an outlier it's and you get this huge positional advantage. Show I I still think there's an argument for those top. I think for me Kelsey. An kittle will both be in the discussion for first round. I don't know that I'll probably look at them. More second round picks but I think they're they're both pretty elite for fantasy and I do think the positional thing really matters because even this year when Chelsea wasn't near as good as he was last year he probably more than doubled the the number twelve tight end right. He had two hundred fifty number twelve at one thirty. Yes sir outscored and by one hundred eighteen. Fantasy points I mean it's not. It's not the advantage of Christian. McCaffrey had though. It's it's a big advantage and that was you know I think it was largely in two thousand eighteen. We were talking about. Oh for sure One hundred eighteen gene fantasy points was the number twenty four. I'm running back if you're comparing from Delvin Cook who were talking about okay Yeah by the way the fantasy points. It's you know it depends what site you look at a but the the concept is the same all right. Look I'm not saying I believe that what I what I was thrown out there but I was floating but but I just thought kind of an interesting talking point a couple of things to promote. I said we're going to read some emails. Why why do analysis later after we talk about tight ends? The emails are about an email that we read at the end of yesterday. Show that crazy concept of drafting team offenses and only starting players from that team. And in which team did we forget who should probably be the number one pick. We got called out via email so we'll read some of those e mails fantasy football dot com remember.

I like that so let us know the best loser. Punishment that you've got. Tell us in a five star review and apple podcasts. We'd really appreciate it all right so You talked about the positional advantage when you talk when you think about Kelsey or Kiddo in round one or Earth's and round two or three or something or whoever who is is got to be number three tight end next year guys. I doubt it. I've just because of concerns I. I'm not sure it will be but I'm probably going into downgrade alerts at least at the beginning the off season more than most just because I don't think the sharing with Dallas Goddard's going away. I think Goddard's going to AH least get the share that he got this year and maybe a slight uptick and I do think that they'll have better receiving options than they had at the end of last year. And you look look at target numbers before almost literally all of the wide receivers got hurt. His target share was way down. So I'll probably have hurts like fourth or fifth I wouldn't be surprised if Andrew's or Henry is ahead of them. Yeah so the number is eight. Eight Games with alshon Jeffery or it's averaged seven point two five have targets per game seven games without Jeffrey and that includes two games in which he left early with an injury. He averaged eleven targets per game. Hobos four more targets per game burts who had one hundred thirty five targets fifteen games. You're after having what happened to thousand eight thousand one hundred and fifty six targets so and I think that matters for him because he's not he's awesome very very good but he's not Kelsey or kittle in terms of what he produces for fantasy points or yards on a per target is averaged at the targets. Way Lower right way more a possession receiver than those guys who are more big play guys and they do a lot more after the catch. Typically I mean just just because killing and Kelsey are so good at that. It's not really a knock on earth but No I agree I mean we were talking yesterday. That urging Goddard and the the eagles as a team lasts last season two thousand nineteen Had the second most targets Four tight ends on a team since two thousand And that's an an astronaut number. I think it was two hundred fifty. You said So we're we know that the wide receiver injuries impacted that and they went to a ton of two tight end sets they played got a ton alongside earth because needed both on the field. The difference now going forward is God's not going to just like when they get better receivers and they are able to run more three wider percents like they wanted to. If the Sean Jackson would have been healthy and it could have had a deep threat a third receiver out on the field or Jeffrey healthy or even Nelson Hegel are mistime. I mean they're it under Greg Ward at the end of the season right so if they're healthy and they're able to run more through receiver sets. Do we really think that Earth is going to continue to play ninety. Plus percent of the snaps and God's going to be the backup or like Heath said now that God has been so effective and was very good on a per target basis right on par and I think even better than arts in some efficiency metrics. Yeah most tight ends. Were better than hurts right for target. Last year he was six point eight. So if you think about it that way and you think they're gonNA continue to just leave Erz on there and take it out lineup. While Qatar was the second round pick and he's he's proven everything that he could prove to this point. So why wouldn't they use him more insightful. Tight end sets and rotate more and unless nurses workload. And that's like we're we're all talking about Adam you just mentioned hundred and fifty six targets in two thousand eighteen hundred and thirty five more and twenty nineteen. I don't I don't project him to get close to that. In twenty twenty money at three hundred thirty five was in fifteen games but I guess I guess my question is he's GonNa get more targets than Mark Andrews. You're right I I mean so. You're Henry like let's. Let's be honest here with Hunter Henry now. It's three years where he can't stay healthy plus missed the season and he really struggled at at the end you know he hunter. Henry hasn't really had that season yet that we're hoping for he's still young. He's still early in his career and the one time that he did score. A lot of touchdowns Keenan Allen played only one game that season so like I see the downgrade in Earth's but I have a hard time figuring out who to put ahead of him Andrews is the one that I have projected and currently project for fantasy points. I haven't got to the chargers yet so I won't really talk about Henry too much. I will say the big difference for their careers. I Zakharov has averaged seven and a half yards per target which is fine for a tight end Mark Andrews at nine and a half yards per target last year Earth's fell six point join eight Andrews was at eight point seven Erz going to be thirty which is generally when we start seeing tight end slowdown in terms of production. Just a little bit so I will have Andrews ahead of Earth's going into next year. Okay so how many rounds behind Kelsey and Kiddo who are let's say top fifteen picks or so Would Mark Andrews or Jacquards. Whoever your the number three tight end would be? Where would they fall? How many rounds? How far behind the top? Two I think the top two are at the one to turn or at least between picks six nine and eighteen so maybe not quite one to turn I done yet. But I'm leaning towards the three four turn for Andrew's and arts. Yeah I might even go later I I will still have probably as tight end three. I think just because the track record and I do agree with some some of your pushback there where it's hard to figure out he'd put ahead and there are concerns concerns. Andrews could keep up that efficiency. It's really high He's almost like this year's OJ Howard Oj. Howard last year ton of efficiency not enough targets? We were hoping for for more except for doesn't have the competition that Howard had. So there's I think there's more reason for optimism Andrews. He just had a better season than Howard's ever head. Right sure probably and and but I I still think that urge what he's done. I'll probably still haven't had three but I probably won't draft him until round four around five. Yes so I'm looking at the PR draft that we did and it was kind of Funky. No love for the tight ends Travis. Kelsey went with the six pick in round two. This is a twelve team league. George cadle went with the third pick around three to right Ben. Gretch Zach Ertz first pick of round. Four Austin Hooper went to picks after that I'm mythic missing mark. Answers is worse and I think Austin Hooper deserves to be in that discussion. Now if we knew for sure he was on the Falcons Mark Andrews went around five and you know NPR. You're like mark. Andrews had really interesting splits his first seven games before the by he was the number three tight end and non number four tight end. NPR he had thirty six catches four hundred. Forty nine yards three touchdowns fifty five targets the third most targets among tight ends last eight games. The only played fifteen games. He was once again number four and number two and non pr but it changed. He didn't have as many targets he didn't have as many catches didn't have as many ours. A huge drop but he had four more touchdowns in those those eight games but Lamar Jackson went before the by the Mark Jackson through thirty one passes per game after the bye through twenty three passes per game. So uh-huh kind of interesting there. I don't know that you can expect the top five tight end. If Jackson's throwing I don't know twenty five passes per game but I don't I don't I don't know what he's GonNa do next year. You know I would. Just I don't know what the makeup pretty much th. This isn't going to be spreading. I expect Lamar Jackson going to throw a few more passes. That's what generally happens with run heavy quarterbacks as they develop through their career. We've seen it with the Shawn Watson last couple of years. We saw it with Russell. Wilson we saw with Cam Newton so I I think it's more likely he throws the number of times he did in the first half of the season or a little bit more than what he did in the second half. Okay so it sounds like you guys still think there's a pretty big gap between the top up to now and the rest which would make those top two very valuable. Yeah and I mean I think there was. It was kind of a top three going into this year was kind on par with kit and everyone had Kelsey as the clear number one. The Way I'm looking at twenty twenty is Kelsey and kittle are are kind of neck and neck at that top tier and then. There's a huge gap after two and I wasn't like he was good. He was top five He was fourth and fifth. NPR almost every like Earth's had six touchdowns touchdowns Kelsey had what five touchdowns weird so the touchdowns just weren't there. kiddle had five for the second straight season had multiple called back in one game early in the air. I the Third Reich the season as well but like the thing you did with Mark Andrews splits with Zach hurt splits. And it's much scarier. Yeah Yeah urge was good in two thousand nineteen inch just that everything when you look forward to two thousand twenty. It's it's not promising. I mean they should be an almost certainly will be healthier author at wide receiver and got the other tight end on. His team has now shown in extended playing time. That he's very very good he's younger. Earth is not going to be a hundred and three hundred and four tar guy. You just you don't see that I'll tell you want to do some splits though. How about Jared Cook with drew brees? He was I. I believe the number one tight end. Fantasy 'cause I well week. One he had a bad game catches thirty seven yards. Then brees got hurt and two but the last eight games of the season he was the number one one tight end and not be. Pr Number two PR. And it was touchdown heavy but twenty eight catches. This is an eight game so just double everything. Twenty eight catches five hundred thirty seven yards seven touchdowns on thirty eight targets a lot of targets. It's not a lot of catches. But it's a thousand seventy four yards and fourteen touchdowns. That's the pace for jared. Cook with drew. brees kind of interesting when you think. I think he's GONNA turn thirty three years old in April Don't have a long history. The of elite tight end production from thirty three year old or older especially guys that have had careers at spotty as jared cook assuming that he comes back assuming they don't add a really early good option as the number a number two. They don't really have a number two right now. They'RE GONNA add a couple of guys probably He's going to be for me in the area. Where like I missed out on the guys I really want? Yeah I I agree that age is a big thing for me. I had a concussion this year. I don't really know his history but you start to get concerned about that that I do more tight ends blocking so much on the line and we know that That can lead to more concussion issues. That we've seen Jordan Reed for instance I I probably will be will be out on Cook because he you just mentioned. From a statistical standpoint was very touchdown dependent very much like Eric Brown twenty eighteen and everybody really wanted to to draft Eric Hebron on after his fourteen touchdowns in two thousand eighteen and he just wasn't nearly as good this year ee. The lack of targets receptions for me at that at that age. It's it's it's not something I want to get back into this year next year. It might be format dependent Darren Waller who was fourth and non PR second NPR had only three touchdowns on one hundred seventeen targets and ninety catches Or Jared Cook Dr Laura Cook Waller for me. It's almost certainly going going to be waller but like if there's a team that we don't know what's going to happen with it next year. It's the raiders we. I'm not sure that we know who the quarterback is going to be for the raiders. Yeah and he waller struggle. When when when fro- came on late in the year right there was splits? One RENFRO was on the field wall is going to have a lot more target competition next year. They wanted to bring Antonio Brown. That didn't work. I think tyrod Williams as the number one wasn't really great but if they do bring in a legitimate number one whether they draft one or they tried to sign you know. Aj Green or whatever however they they obviously showed an interest in trying to get that caliber of player last offseason. Then they'll have Williams as a deep threat renfro waller as underneath targets on their tight end that would would really hamper waller's ability to have hundred seventeen targets again next season and it's also notable that it took until he was twenty seven for him to break out. He's not a young guy. I mean he's a new guy on the fantasy landscape but he's definitely older in his career as well. I still like him but yeah to the to answer your question. I take Wallover Cook largely because I'm just that far down on Cook. Do you WanNa talk more about twenty nineteen and maybe what worked or didn't work or you just spin it ahead to twenty twenty which we've been mostly doing but I I guess we if we put a bow on it then you know like how would you sum up tight end in two thousand nineteen go. I think obviously the the top three guys all did really well. And they were the top. Three guys in drafts. And then we saw tons four five six who haven't really talked about yet ingram. OJ Howard Hunter. Henry did not do very well right and I think if one of Kelsey kit alerts. I'd say maybe got hurt this year. We'd have a little bit of a different Feel for for how things went but right now I think we feel really confident that like these early round tight end picks. They didn't but a lot of times they do. And so I. I'm a little hesitant to over. React to just this one data point. There's a reason that people are wary of early Titan picks six and so actually the the flip side of it is my biggest takeaway. Is that once again. We had some late round tight ends. Kinda come out of nowhere and really do well. And it's not just Mark Andrews Susan Darren Waller. It's also guys who had short spurts in season Tyler. Higby late in the year right and and we saw that With I guess I'm thinking two years ago Eric Yvonne with the Lions had a nice little run late in the year. But then you also had early in the season was a guy you could grab and then later Jacob Hollister in that the same role for Seattle. There's there's often guys so for me. The biggest thing that I took back was you don't have to invest high tide on which to Adams point earlier in the show you can. Yeah I think I I kinda think next year. I'll be looking to to wait later. Trying to find this next year's there in waller or Mark Andrews or Eric Hebron from twenty Eighteen when he was a late round unpicking with the colts or or finding that the tyler hit me off the waiver. Wire if I if I don't hit in the draft cause I think those opportunities are available at this position. Yeah I I mean what the the top two guys or two of the top three hit and Zakar. It's Kinda hits and that we basically universally agreed read that we then we're GonNa wait and there was another tier of Ingram Howard and Henry and they were just all. Were terrible for one reason or another I view you still this year. Kelsey and Kendall are pretty much bulletproof unless they get hurt and they have no more injury risk than the other wide receivers and running backs that range so I'm still going to draft them like the elite options they or. I do think I'm going to be more likely to wait other than those guys. Except for maybe Mark Andrews I think his roles pretty secure that offense and I do think under armour to be fair to the Middle Group of tight ends Howard was truly awful hunter. Henry had great stretch. I mean He. He got hurt after after week. One and he was fine and week. One four catches for sixty yards on five targets. Played almost the entire game. weeks six eleven. He was the number one tight end fantasy. He looked like he was truly breaking out. Thirty five catches four hundred. Twenty seven yards three touchdowns in six games forty-nine targets he led all tight ends in targets at one more than Travis. Kelsey he he was a stud and then I don't know what happened. It's hard for me to figure out what happened. Hunter Henry in the final. Five weeks of the season was after their by. I looked at Philip rivers. Pass attempts Some low games but he had that during this great stretch for Henry Keenan Allen Mike Williams were they more involved. I haven't looked at the rushing. Totals for Gordon and Echo cler yet. But I can't figure it out. But he really stunk down the stretch on our Henry But he gave you some great production and you probably picked him up off waivers and a lot of cases because people drop them after he you know he missed so much time and Ingram was a top ten tight end. He was nine thousand per game basis in non. PBR He was seventh NPR. He had seven or more more targets in seven of eight games and of course one horrible game was against the Arizona cardinals when read Ellison had a good game but they were okay Yeah so so so like Okay Ben. You said you're going to look for the guys later in the draft your initial thought. Twenty twenty you're GonNa look for the next Mark Andrews the next Darren Waller who could it be and it doesn't have to be necessarily a new name. It could be a bounce back candidate Ingram. They don't fall maybe O J Howard bounces back. Who who do you think think could be that guy? Yeah I think I in one of those drafts that we already did. I think I took Ingraham after a while. I mean there's so many guys that have risen up now that you probably GonNa get value on Ingram. You're definitely going to get value on. OJ Howard. He's more of a a double digit round guy. I think what's interesting with Andrews and waller as they were. They were hyped guys. They were top. Ten tight ends in most drafts. They weren't like you had the way till the very end of the draft another name that I think will probably be in that back of the top ten that has has shown some signs that could be the next breakout. Be Mike CASTRUCCI. I mean the second season this year he was in the top five and tight end yards. was that vertical athletic tight end. That was pretty efficient with Ryan Fitzpatrick. He's a guy that I think could definitely take stuff on twenty twenty. I think there are two obvious choices here and I I don't I'll have them ranked similarly Orley to Gaseke. I'm not sure if I'll have them. Above or behind. But Noah Fan TJ Hawkins ensure not going to be in the top eight tight ends in it by ADP this year. We should did not have really expected them to be much better than they were last year on a per game basis and we should expect him to get better. So if you're going away I think Hopkinson and banned for the kind of the two obvious guys that you target cricket how `Bout Hopkinson fant versus Evans. Ingram all probably have ingram at all. Have Ingram hires will you arriving. You're right Ingram. It was very good when he was healthy. He just got hurt. I don't think he's getting less and less something else happens over the off season that surprises us. I don't think you're gonNA see Ingram fall. A lot of top eight tight ends. I think he'll be probably six seven three in the draft that I was looking at that we did a few weeks ago. He went not long after just a few spots. Dafter but Ingram when after Tyler higby what do you think about that. That will not happen. in-draughts that I'm participating. I don't believe I agree. Okay well where were you. Heath could use your back then I think it was in the everglades all right. That's a pretty good excuse any busts for next season and he bust on top of your head besides Cook Cook on that guys. Don't be so quick. Look ages wages whatever. He has not played with great. quarterbacks order baxter boats most of his career and like drew brees is doing things that age. We never thought possible. Tom Brady same thing. I mean guys do in sports in general gay guys do things that age is that we didn't think they could do it. You know happens all the time. You probably doubt Nelson Cruz every year. Heath how many catches did you say he last year Chur Cook Forty three. I think he missed some time. What did he do? He just scored a few touchdowns. Yeah we ever catch you ten yards per target guy. He had an elite elite season but when a guy has a career season at age thirty two. I'm generally going to bet against him at age. Thirty three thirty one a better August pick would be ECKERD's yeah I I would also throw higby in there because the rams change their offense so much. There's all that talk early in the season about the Patriots having figured out there eleven personnel heavy offense and they did they did some rearranging of things and clearly made heavy a focal point but maybe over the off season shopping mcvay goes back to the drawing board and and tries to tweak his old offense they got him to the Super Bowl as opposed to sticking with what you know I I just think scheme wise it could end up being thing where they get back to those receivers receivers ahead of the tight ends in that. Often it's a possibility I mean I I still think what he did is is very notable. But I don't think I'd feel comfortable taking the top ten Tano so he's another one then I think we'll go to high all right coming up on the show we got some news and notes the Jaguars are about to have a new offensive coordinator Green Bay's offensive line might take a hit with Brian. Bul LAGA ALGA free agent and we've got some two thousand nineteen notes and a few of your emails at fantasy football at CBS. I DOT COM. Let's take a quick break here on F F and we'll be right back.

Today on Apple podcasts. spotify wherever you find podcast here are your news notes. Jay Gruden is looks like going to be the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville. Jaguars guys you like it or dislike it or what. I don't know Luke warm on it at this time not not not negative on it. All note that he's always used a passing back. I mean he did with the Bengals with Geo Bernard than he did with Chris. Thompson and a big part Leonard for nets valued. This year was that he didn't come off the field. I think you have the second highest average snapchat behind only Christian. McCaffrey for obviously didn't score a lot of touchdowns and wasn't an amazing fancy player. But if we're we're hoping that it's touchdowns bounce back next year we also might need to be a little bit concerned about as receptions dropping if they go to receive me back and you know not a bad track record for Jay Gruden three three seasons as as offensive coordinator for the bengals eighteenth and scoring in two thousand eleven that was Andy Dalton and AJ Greens rookie season. Then twelve then sixth so but pretty well he also called plays the whole time head coach in Washington rates. Yes so I don't know about that. I don't know didn't they had mcvay Avai right. I DunNo McVey yeah I I'll verify incorrect myself at a later date. I know I won't but I think think he's called plays for most if not all of his time in Washington. Okay I mean you would think so. McVeigh just just his mere presence. I think makes everybody better as as we've found out Right tackle Brian Bulava. Not sure if he's going to resign with the packers Odell Beckham at core muscle surgery. Julian Edelman had shoulder surgery. He's expected to be ready for offseason workouts. Oh and other Antonio Brown headline he allegedly beat up the driver of a moving truck Steven Steven Jones the cowboys. VP said extending Dak.. Prescott is a top priority meanwhile Cincinnati head coach. Zack Taylor said resigning. Aj Green is a priority and JJ WATT is going to host Saturday night live. I don't know it's not a good show anyway so I'm not sure he's going to be a better. It's a pretty good show on certain occasions and and I would say only this that I would anticipate him. I think he's one of the better football players that could do it. Okay pick one. I would like one football player that I would like to host Saturday night live. Can we do ex players. I think challenges. That would be pretty entertaining. He would be fantastic at it. The Steve Smith would probably be pretty good at. I'm thinking of former players. That are you know Steve Smith would be amazing at it. It's got to be a wide receiver. Who are the most colorful wider? Pretty much has to be a wide receiver. They're all the most entertaining way. Must be disc somebody so obvious right now. No I'm blanking you know. We'll we'll figure like somebody's going to show off at the pro bowl or something like that. Judy it would be really good at it. Ju Ju Ju would be really good at it. Yeah he's he's a funny guy. Art Two thousand nine hundred nine notes just a few things to throw out. Just tell me what you feel about. How how you feel about these splits Matt Ryan First six games of the season before he left? We Gate with a week seven with an injury the number five quarterback and fantasy but he was pretty close number one. I mean there was a group of five that were absolutely elite. They average twenty seven or more fantasy points per game. He was part of that. The next best average twenty four point seven points per game six point for passing touchdown leagues and Ryan led the NFL in passing touchdowns in those games and he had two thousand yards in five games so he was crushing it. He I heard you got hurt. His ankle missed the game or to miss this a full game. You know par part of the rams game came back and in his last eight Games Matt Ryan and was only the number thirteen quarterback and fantasy. He had eleven touchdowns he'd fifteen touchdowns I five games and eight. Eleven is last eight but he didn't have the fourth most passing yards arts in those eight games so elite first six games number thirteen quarterback last eight games. What do you make of it? It's just the last five five years of Matt Ryan in one season. I you it's been all about the touchdown rape for him for the most except for that. Mvp Year but you look at his. Last I five years. Three point four percent touchdown rate. He was a fantasy disaster seven point one. He was the best player in fantasy and totally unsustainable three point eight again the year after that which is way. Eighty lower than a quarterback is good as Matt Ryan should ever be at then five point eight the year after that. What's slightly above? Average for Quebec. Last year fell down to four point. Two and he wasn't quite right is good. It's frustrating because I don't know where to put him for the upcoming season but he's GonNa throw for around forty five hundred yards. Probably I would expect expect. He's going to be somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty five to thirty touchdowns and he's going to be a low winds starting quarterback and fantasy. I think what those splits your. You'd probably find that they were trailing more and they're throwing more because I know Atlanta Led the NFL in pass attempts by like fifty over any other team. They were this year. The steelers did that in two thousand eighteen. And obviously Ben Rothlisberger got hurt but we we see a lot of regression with those big outlier numbers. They threw six hundred eighty four times. The next team was the panthers at six hundred thirty thirty three so fifty one attempts more than any other team in the league this year. I you know I think that's going to impact Ryan as well I agree completely. With heath a touchdown right is a huge part of Matt Ryan but also also we should expect probably that his pastimes come down a little bit next year. I One last thing about those splits. Though those first five games he had everybody he had Muhammed Sinewy at Austin Hooper he had Calvin Ridley Lee and of course they had Julio Jones. Those last eight Games The Hooper played the first game and then he got her. He missed three games. Then he comes back. He plays one game with everybody except the new. And then Kinda really gets hurt. He misses three games. So does that matter to you that he just didn't have the full arsenal will he's not going to have the foolish mullets news not going to be there and they'll have he'll have Ridley Hooper and Jones possibly who is a free agent. Ridley is a guy who because he missed three games you know. I think we've talked about it in recent weeks but I think it took a step forward in his stats. Don't really show it. Because he missed three games he basically put up the same numbers in thirteen games. They put up in sixteen games. The rookie I I think Julio really are really good one two punch. I think you'll have plenty of weaponry whether they bring back hooper or or I mean. Obviously Hooper would help but If they don't bring backout expect the Ati their third receiver pass catching tight end. But they should have plenty of weaponry with those two guys at the top for your yeah. You're not going to get any Kelvin. Ridley unless I adjust my initial projections actions. Because you're going to be my first run. Had Him just ahead of Odell Beckham Adam so yeah probably GonNa Justin down a little bit it from there but I agree with one hundred percent within that he is like the so far. My favorite breakout wide receiver candidate. Next two thousand nine hundred Chris Carson we we put out our top ten running back lists. I don't think anybody had Chris Carson on their. He tore his Achilles. And that is a big deal. But his injury doesn't appear to be as bad as Rashad pennies injury career. He didn't ask us. Oh what did he do. Fractures hip fractured. His hip fractured his hip. Fractures hip. Sorry which also not good. Yeah neither of those are really good. But I- AH FRACTURED HIS HIP. Somebody in today's notes toward their Achilles tight end Malpensa was an ACO but yeah okay good. I'm glad it didn't tear terrorists Kelly. I verse Fourteen Games before he fractured hip and week sixteen. What was it number nine running back in both formats? He had two hundred and seventy carries. That was the second most in the NFL. Only one behind Derrick Henry at that point it thirty six catches so you know the reports have been so far positive. It should be ready for week one hopefully for training camp. What's IT GONNA take for you to make Chris Carson top ten running back as a possible A lot of injuries. Why Like I he did have a good stretch at where he produced that type of production. But I would still anticipate it's going to be to existing especially after like they were pretty hesitant to give him that full workload. He'd had some injury concerns in the past. They did pretty much given the full workload and he got hurt again so I would not expect him to have the same number of touches that he had through the first thirteen or fourteen games over a full season and penny they. I think it was more an indication that if they weren't comfortable with penny yet and then penny. Throughout the season there were positive reports that he was Taking his training more seriously lost some weight was in better condition and then after the the by he played his first two games with over forty percent of the snaps all season and then towards ACL and third game back but it went to a committee and part of the reason I went to a committee was Carson. How the fumble issues all year to right? So I'm looking at this going into the offseason as the are always about open competition and this and that that penny if he rehabs in his back Atkins healthy has just as much of a chance to be the starter as Carson does so for me. Carson's not going to be a top ten top comeback last note from two thousand Nineteen Wide Wide Receiver Cooper Cup. He did end up as the number four receiver and fantasy in both formats ninety four catches one thousand one hundred and sixty one yards ten touchdowns on one hundred and thirty thirty four targets in sixteen games for copy caught a touchdown in each of his last five games but his bullets are really interesting as well. Kind of like Mark Andrus first eight games. He was the number well. Yes and no like Mark Andrews Terms of targets a not so much production last first eight games. He was the number three wide receiver around fantasy Number three not number two NPR. He had the second most targets he had the second most receiving yards among wide receivers. He had seven hundred ninety two yards in eight games. Ames fifty eight catches the last eight games. He was not even a top twenty wide receiver Cooper Cup. He had thirty six catches down from fifty eight in his first eight games. Thirty six in his next eight yards went from seven hundred ninety two in his first day games to three hundred and sixty nine next eight but he's still caught five touchdowns in both Sets of eight games. The targets dropped forty eighty seven targets in his first eight games. forty-seven targets in his last eight games. So he was still a touchdown producer. Sir but that is it. What did you think about that with? Cooper cop is been in the league now for three years and so at that point. I think it's not a bad time to take a look at sixteen sixteen game pieces and where he's at eighty four thousand sixty five and nine that includes two games his second year where he left early and basically produced nothing that includes includes his rookie year production. Where obviously we wouldn't expect that to be as productive as second or third year so I think that's kind of like a floor of what I would expect for him? Maybe not the nine touchdowns downs. Maybe you only score seven but I would anticipate it. I'm GonNA project him for something around eighty five catches twelve hundred yards and eight touchdowns probably a a high end number two low in number one wide receiver yeah. I'm pretty optimistic about him. Going forward as well. He's only really produced and we can look at these splits but To your point about him he was just outside the top twenty receivers in the second half of the season. That's where he was drafted but that was mostly because he was doing. Jared Cook things just scoring touchdown. Not Not catching sure. Sure but part of that was the hippie stuff the change in the offense they actually dropped. His snaps vary significantly in certain games where they went with more tight ends because he's the slot receiver a lot of time. Slot receivers and tight ends are going to have Snaps that go different directions when when teams of using more tight ends or not using the third receiver as much but what I think is interesting is basically went around around when his production was down he basically was producing around where we would have drafted him in the twenties last year. So it's almost like if these were flipped if he started with that for the last eight games and the first thing game and then finished with the first day games in the last two games and I know they weren't but if they were we'd be talking about him in the top ten receiver. Because of how good that I ate. It was if he closed the season that way. We'd be so high on him so I don't want to overreact to the fact that He was so good early and probably we raised our expectations and then he failed to live up to them in the second half is is essentially where I'm at on okay. That's Cooper Cup. Well it's emails fantasy football at CBS. I DOT COM. He's you miss it. This was a fun one yesterday. got this email from Randy in York Pennsylvania he said what do you think about this format ten team league draft three rounds. Each manager would draft an entire entire. NFL team each round and the manager could only fill the roster spots from players on the three teams. They have drafted so we got some feedback. Jim in Boston said I really liked discussion about drafting the entire team's roster books. Such an interesting choice because I think I said they'd be number one for me but we were doing that off the cuff. I plan to do a draft like this with my league mates okay. So that's Jim. He liked it. Justin pointed out and he said Dear. Happy I'm GonNa make sure Ben knows this reference Dear Happy Billy L. E. Bobby and Nikki. You need to make sure that I know that reference have had billy give it away. Those are like two of my favorite movies as a kid. I mean Adam saying Bobby Boucher and Little Nicky I guess he is the devil. Yeah I don't think I've ever seen little dicky nor I don't care I don't know if live either. Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. Where you know the? That's we're watching those kids. Who is your which one do you like better? I loved Happy Gilmore. I pretty much know. Every quotes a top movie. Not a lot here though. I don't think he likes happy. Gilmore my guess. What do you mean? It's one of my favorite sports quarts movies guy. He should have been standing there His favorite sports but it is more of a sports movie than Jerry. Maguire for she'll okay okay. Thing is West around sports. Obviously it's it's. It's a sports movie when you in the analysts were discussing the format of the three around. Choose a fulltime or choose a full team. How could you leave out the saints? You guys are making the case for the giants and the forty niners Eddie. Left out the saints will. That was a bad job by you guys. I think the saints are in the discussion for the number two choice. The number one choice is pretty obvious. but I think the saints could be right there in the discussion for number two. 'cause there's consolidated take your time with the chief who's yeah we also the chiefs right away. We shouldn't have forgot to say it's obviously. We talked about another team. I realized I don't think we mentioned was the cowboys. Also also very with the saints and Scott from Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton. Ohio said. I've been a longtime the time listener and your help guided me to another championship this year. However I found that while you're advice is the best in town? There are sure to be some stinkers every week when Randy in Pennsylvania mentioned the draft draft a whole NFL roster league had of the saints not get selected first overall then he goes on and he says this league sounds like a lot of fun. I think there should be a listener league like this next this year. Adamant Heath can be co Commissioners. Well I mean he's will be commissioner. Adam we'll have the password the commissioner. It wasn't just the password for the commissioner log on legal literally whenever you were logged into the league. You had access to everything that I did from a commissioner sampling and literally you have that same access in the podcast league. I've never once considered you the commissioner. I'm I'm going to make some changes did this. Also you're not gonNA change you some stuff next year just approve it. It's GonNa be really draft and you see it super flakes. I know it's not gonNA be. Who are our you know what I better before you do it? I'd better get in that league. The knock out your commissioner accident. I wanted to add a little five teams on. Add a little context as we can we can. We can draft them or list or top five. But but one of the things I pulled up was Skill position PR points from two thousand Nineteen Ni- as a team totals Obviously the quarterback is an an important portent additional piece but Dallas actually led the league and then it goes Atlanta number two Tampa Bay San Francisco. The rams achieves her down at six Eagles chargers saints and Sea Hawks. I believe that runs at the top ten. Those are the guys that just total skill position points now for a team like the saints argument would be. They're very concentrated in their scoring. You get a lot for Michael Thomas and allow for Alvin Kamara. They're gonNA be better than their total some but I think that was an interesting Note as well on this competition. I'd probably go chiefs chiefs Saints Ravens. Cowboys buccaneers okay. But we're starting quarterback two running backs too wide receivers tight end. Let's say is there a flex to flex to. Yeah so I wouldn't take the ravens out high. Well you hate Mark Ingram. Yeah I do hate market. That's true I I would take the chiefs. Yeah definitely I think I would probably take the cowboys because I think Michael Gallup is another guy. That's like Calvin ready that we're probably going to be overlooking a little bit at least early in the offseason So they have to really good receivers in my view plus Zeke. You'll Elliott obviously I I think the box for me would be as well especially especially if we knew that James was back because we just know that they're going to throw downfield so much. There's so much downfield volume. Even after Evans got hurt Bershad Perriman led the NFL in yards from from that point on so and was productive. So you know you know that there's going to be receiver production there that would be a top five team for me. I don't know how close the chargers I think would be a top five team for me as well and then saints things that are not say the sense that yeah that that would be my. I don't even know who's on the chargers right now. Yeah but also Nicholas Austin Heckler is the forty niners are interesting thing though because you could have two running backs to start you got your tight end. They were the second highest scoring team in the NFL. That does include defensive point. How would you know which running backs to starch? You starting artem both you start to. I look I will know the you know going in which to start. It's never been like there's three them. Oh yes this rarely rarely really four because for a while we thought. Jeff Wilson was the game I Yeah but it wasn't was that with Kevin Coleman heard at that point like it would be it would be committed most right now obviously spending moments health. But I don't think you're going to have of In this situation I'm envisioning. I've taken three teams. One of the other. Two teams should have a running back better than the second San Francisco running running back which teams I get three teams in this draft. Yeah we're having the forty nine hundred. Okay okay so I don't think having her two of they're running backs is that exciting and strategy to so if you take the chiefs. You probably don't have to worry about a team that has an elite tight end. Ernie an elite quarterback because you already locked up mahomes homes and key Kelsey. I mean it would be interesting to draft like this it would be. I don't know why I was trying to fill every roster spot from one team so my apologies Yeah okay then screw that. We don't want the forty niners. They had the chiefs of the obvious one. I think she or are they. She s cowboys. Books would be the best combination. Yeah that's what I really sheaves cowboys. Books and then saints. The readers are right the saints are up there. Okay good stuff guys. Thank you good. Show and tomorrow we're going to take a look at twenty twenty rankings. That'll be fun. Yeah all right. Well I been doing all your projections so you get to show off. The I've got ready for two thirds of the okay. We're GONNA talk about those two thirds of that the next third.

Forty, two, twenty, three Matt, Ryan thirty or forty, three, seventy, one, four touchdowns, todd gurley forty, seven yards on the ground forum. Julio Jones receptions a hundred and thirty seven yards, two touchdowns, Calvin Ridley six reception sixty, one yards and a touchdown and for Minnesota Kirk cousins twenty, four, thirty, six, three, forty, three, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

Moving into the AFC North Pittsburgh steelers taking on the Cleveland Browns steelers into this four zero Cleveland entered it for one.

Now let's take a look at an absolute great game. The Houston Texans taken on the Tennessee Titans looking at their records you would have never thought this would have been a great game but Tennessee was actually losing with ten seconds to go in the game when Ryan health through an absolute. To Aj, Brown in the corner of the end zone to force overtime Titans Derrick. Henry. Just completely take over and over time on their first possession in the game go all the way down. Derek. takes direct snap runs it into the end zone shuts this game down Derrick. Henry was an absolute beast today it was absolutely insane to watch.

Colts Comeback Score Twenty one points they ended up winning it thirty one twenty seven Cincinnati had a chance at the very end of the game they were on the move and jober interception closes out Joe Borough Twenty Five, thirty nine, three hundred thirteen yards, one interception joe makes him fifty four yards on the ground on a touchdown t higgins six receptions one hundred twenty five yards Aj green finally has a day eight receptions, Ninety six yards, Philip rivers twenty nine of forty, four, three, seventy, one, three touchdowns, an interception Jonathan Taylor six yards on the ground and Marcus Johnson by receptions one hundred and five yards. trae Burton for receptions, fifty yards and a touchdown.

This wasn't even a game I mean this was horrific to watch horrific for the just even be out there. There was like two first downs. The entire game dolphins went at twenty four to nothing the jets remained winless the only team in the NFL without a win Joe flacco twenty, one of forty, four, hundred and eighty, six yards interception Jamison crowder seven receptions, forty eight yards, and for the Dolphins Ryan Fitzpatrick Eighteen to twenty seven, hundred, ninety, one yards, three touchdowns, two interceptions, miles gaskin ninety one yards on the ground Adam Sheen three receptions fifty one yards and a touchdown buccaneers. Green. Bay. Packers this was supposed to be a heck of a game. It certainly was if you attempt Bay buccaneers. Fan. The Green Bay packers started out quick ten anno in the first quarter, and then it was Tampa Bay buccaneers from there Aaron Rodgers stores have pick six next possession throws another interception. The buccaneers scored twenty eight points. In the second quarter they scored thirty unanswered points throughout the rest of the game. It's It's pretty impressive. Win by the buccaneers they answered the call and they improved to foreign to the Green Bay packers, their first loss of the season and fall to foreign one Aaron Rodgers Sixteen of thirty, five, a hundred, six yards, two interceptions. And Davante Adams six receptions sixty one yards Tom Brady seventeen to twenty, seven, one, hundred, sixty, six, yards, two touchdowns, Ronald Jones one hundred thirteen yards, two touchdowns and gronk emerging on the scene with five receptions seventy eight yards and a touchdown. Chris Godwin coming back from injury five or seven forty eight yards to wrap up Sunday. Night Football San Francisco. Forty niners took. On the Los Angeles Rams San Francisco got absolutely embarrassed last weekend by the Miami Dolphins Jimmy Garoppolo gets pulled at halftime. There's a lot of questions going into the week of whether or not Jimmy Garoppolo is the quarterback of the future if he should lose his job lots of questions for San, Francisco to answer San Francisco answers the bell tonight against the Los Angeles Rams. Who entered the game four and won they beat them twenty four sixteen Jimmy Garoppolo did look good in this one, Jimmy G. Twenty, three or thirty three to sixty eight, three touchdowns ricky most five yards on the ground George Gidell's receptions one, hundred, nine yards and a touchdown Andy Bo Samuel six receptions, sixty, six yards and a touchdown for the Rams Jared Goff just didn't.

Reception forty, five yards a touchdown Robert Woods four receptions, twenty nine yards and a touchdown for the first game on the. Monday night schedule for week six Kansas City chiefs. Take on the buffalo bills. Bowl teams entering for in one. Kansas City of thirteen ten at the half Kansas City was really in control. All of the second half buffalo bills just really didn't have a chance Kansas City really established a run game in this one finish. This went out twenty six to seventeen cheese with five one bills dropped to four to. Patrick mahomes twenty one of twenty, six, two, hundred, twenty, five yards, two touchdowns. Clyde Edwards Allaire Twenty Six Russia Times one hundred sixty one yards on the ground. Darius Robinson. Damarcus Robinson. Five receptions. Yards.

One Interception Josh Allen also had forty two yards on the ground and Stefan digs six receptions forty, six yards one touchdown last least co Beasley, four receptions forty, five yards, one touchdown. To conclude Monday night football, we had the Arizona Cardinals taking on the Dallas Cowboys Arizona entered the game at three and two douse entered at two in three. There was supposed to be a lot of offense scored in one, and there certainly was by one team in one team only there is on a cardinals Arizona thirty eight thousand cowboys, ten cowboys looked horrendous in this one andy, Dalton, couldn't find any receivers. The offensive line couldn't block anybody Ezekiel Elliott fumbles two possessions in a row. I, mean it it was. Disastrous, from the jump, you had everybody everybody had contribute contribution. If you're the Dow's cowboys and why you guys lost, guys are dropping balls, easy catches and so on and so forth the cardinals wrap this one up, they moved to foreign to couch off the two and four into believe it or not the cowboys at two and four still top division. Which is absolutely insane. Calamari nine completions on the night nine. Nine of twenty, four, hundred, eighty yards in two touchdowns in the thing that they scored thirty points in this one Kenyan. Drake Twenty Russia Tom's one, hundred, sixty, four, yards, two touchdowns. He had a nice garbage time touchdown at the very end of the game that went for sixty nine yards. Christian Kirk. To receptions eighty, six yards, two touchdowns, he also had an idiot yard touchdown reception de'andre. Hopkins to receptions seventy three yards in for the cowboys any Dalton thirty, four, fifty, four, two, hundred, sixty, six, yards. One touchdown to interceptions zeke Elliott only forty nine yards on the ground. He had two fumbles in this one and Amari Cooper seven receptions, seventy nine yards and a touchdown. moving into ABCD categories, those of you who are new to the podcast. Those, who receive a letter grade for the weekend, the exceeded expectations these are guys that we thought played well or played beyond their potential for the given week be is guys who had bounced back. Games Is for our consistent athletes and D- is for our disappointment players of the week. I up exceeding expectations, Deshaun Watson be anticipated because of the way the Tennessee Titans had played against the buffalo bills and containing Josh Allen last week we thought for sure that the Shawn Watson might had unfavorable matchup heading into this one while the Shawn Watson answered the bell finishes the weekend as qb one going into Sunday night football. Twenty eight, thirty, seven, three, thirty, five, four touchdowns finishing with thirty two fantasy points. He played solid against a good Titans Defense Matt Ryan taking on the Minnesota Vikings, Matt Ryan, coming off a terrible performance last week, they fired the head coach. Dan Quinn Not really sure what was supposed to be going on with the Atlanta Falcons and with all the information coming out about not knowing if Matt Ryan, the future of the franchise so on and so forth did not think that Matt Ryan was going to have a killer day in it. He does go thirty or forty, three, seventy, one, four touchdowns finishes with thirty one points six points finishes qb to he played solid. The play bad last week but he finished his solid this week answers the bell. He should be the quarterback of the future for the Atlanta Falcons. Derrick Henry Derrick Henry who This man completely exceeded expectations I made a bold prediction last week. This guy was going to have one hundred and fifty yards and a touchdown in the win against. HOUSTON HOUSTON. With a terrible run defense. Well, he completely exceeded those expectations with two hundred twelve yards and two touchdowns on the ground adding in two receptions for fifty two yards averaging nine point, six yards per carry. Unreal finishing with forty point four fantasy points I mean. Absence and you can't ask much more than that. De'andre Andrea Swift. He's been kind of up and down for the Detroit Lions. FITNESSES are be two on the day twenty, seven point three fantasy points. Fourteen rush attempts one hundred, sixteen yards, two touchdowns average per carry eight point, three yards it's it's another great output. If you're de'andre swift moving on just in Jefferson Justin Jefferson thought for sure he was going to have a good day against the Atlanta Falcons defends considering how bad they are against wide receivers on the season did not anticipate him having that good of a day as he did finish the day nine receptions one, hundred, sixty, six yards in two touchdowns thirty nine point, six fantasy points finishes the afternoon as wide receiver one. Continues to play well for the Minnesota Vikings, but I just did not expect him to have this big of a day. Julio Jones on the other side of the ball playing against Minnesota. Everybody thought Julio was washed up that his hamstring was going to be end of his career so on and so forth he answered the Bell Eight receptions one hundred, thirty, seven yards, two touchdowns finishes the afternoon with thirty seven fantasy points. Excuse me thirty three point seven fantasy points wide receiver to on the day Willfuller v Wide Receiver Three on the day twenty four point, three points, six receptions, one, hundred, twenty, three yards, and a touchdown. For Willfuller I just didn't think that he was going to have a great day given the fact that he has been not struggling but. That Tennessee's defense had was really stingy this last week against buffalo just offer share that they would shutdown shot and Watson and will fuller turns out he ends up having a day good for will fuller first gear Tennessee's tight end. This wasn't Joanna Smith in this one folks Anthony I gray. Twenty five point three fantasy points tight end one on the afternoon eight receptions one hundred, thirteen yards a touchdown. This kid only had nine receptions on the year coming into this game and he had no TD's. So this was clearly as best day of his career so far trae Burton. Twenty one point nine fantasy points tight end to on the afternoon four receptions eighty yards a touchdown one re one, rush one yard touchdown it's only played in three games so far is only had seven receptions so far with forty nine yards. So clearly, the best game of the season for Traber and. Alexander has some big grades those kids who bounced back this week for some foremost Aj. Green playing Indianapolis. Zero points one point three eight point six points in the last three fantasy games terrible. Absolutely terrible. Sky was fantasy irrelevant came pickup on basically anyway. At this point everybody is just all off on AJ green well, finishes wide receiver twelve this weekend in week six with eight receptions ninety six yards getting him seventeen point six fantasy points. Killing Cole playing Detroit Last Three Games ten point seven fantasy points or under this weekend finishes wide receiver six, six receptions one hundred, forty, three yards, twenty point three fantasy points Philip rivers. Has a nice bounce back game for him only throws one interception in this game, which is totally unlike Philip rivers usually it's two or three this afternoon twenty, four point seven fantasy points cube six on the afternoon last two games only five, point six and eleven point two fantasy points. So clearly, a much better game from Philip Rivers Carson. wentz finishes the afternoon as qb three last week only seventeen point a seventeen point four fantasy points to tease two interceptions this week twenty nine point four fantasy points with two TS zero interceptions. So Nice little bounce back from Carson Wentz and last but not least. Hayden hearst last three Games has. Not cleared ten points two point eight, nine, point one, seven point, one points this week Nice Week fifteen point seven finishes tight end five, four receptions, fifty-seven yards, any touchdown in the win over Minnesota now about those consistent guys love 'em always note them this is the most important part of these grades. The consistency of these guys I up AJ Brown Aj Brown finishes the weekend wide receiver four against Houston Texans coming back from that ankle injury as Tuesday Tuesday he has a great game goes for twenty one point, two fantasy points, seven receptions, eighty two yards, and a touchdown on Tuesday against the buffalo bills comes back in this one. Goes Five five receptions, sixty six yards two touchdowns finishes with twenty two point six fantasy points absolute consistent guy look for him to be extremely consistent for the Tennessee titans throughout the remainder of the season. Brandin cooks wide receiver five on the weekend. Last two games. Brandin cooks has been very consistent for the Houston Texans Week five thirty fantasy points, eight receptions, one hundred and sixty one yards and a touchdown, and in week six, twenty, one point, eight fantasy points with nine receptions, sixty eight yards and a touchdown. Travis Gum played well and in super consistent right now. Why does seven on the day nineteen point five fantasy points six receptions, seventy five yards a touchdown last week. So we five thirty, one point, two fantasy points, and then we four thirteen point, seven points. So he remains consistent for the Philadelphia Eagles offense is the only reason why that they're able to move the ball so good for travis full gum. Now talk about those disappointing games Gaza we absolutely expected to have good days or have had consistent bad days. Let's talk about him mark. Andrews guys been up and down and down and up can't really get a read on him or that Baltimore offense for that matter. Mark Andrews Finishes the Afternoon Tight End Twenty seven four point one fantasy points on two receptions twenty one yards last weeks he had in week five, hundred, seventeen point, six fantasy points, and then we forehead twenty point seven continual up and down roller coaster if you're a Mark Andrews owner. John Smith two point three fantasy points does afternoon one reception for thirteen yards Tight end thirty, two played a bad Houston d and only was able to haul in one reception only had two targets on the day that's usually not like and this is worse performance so far as next performance was eleven point four fantasy points. So is disappointing to see that outage WanNa Smith especially after having two touchdowns on Tuesday? Robert Tynan. Men Men absolutely balled up before their by week for the Green Bay packers. This week finishes his tight end twenty two point five fantasy points last three games thirty three point eight, which was the game before the by sixteen and ten point five. So definitely down week for Robert. Time to be quite honest it was. Down week for that entire Green Bay. Offense. Against smothered by the buccaneers defense. So look for Robert tonner into have a bounceback week next week devante parker finishes wide wide. Receiver, forty-five on the weekend. Three sections thirty five yards, we expected a big data devante Parker against the bad jetski. No, he leaves the floor in the fourth quarter with an injury, but I was really just expecting more added devante Parker but it was just such a weird game script for that game. There wasn't like any first downs The dolphins scored some points but nobody had anything fantastic for statistics or anything, and once they got up, they just stayed there jets couldn't move the ball. So look for devante Parker to have a bounceback week again next week. Aaron. Rodgers terrible day terrible I mean. He wishes he could erase his day only three point eight fantasy points on the day totally unlike Aaron Rodgers look for him. Bounce back week Alexander. Madison we were looking for big things out of Alexander, Madison with the absence of delving cook we're expecting big carries a lot of yards against the bad Atlanta Falcons defense. Well, it didn't happen. You only got ten Russia for twenty six yards and his best best part of his game is is receiving ability thought for sure he was going to have six seven receptions, forty yards or so one reception for four yards finishes rb thirty, eight on the day with only four fantasy points. Yikes live viscous Schultz. Were thought thought he was going to have a good day. I personally did not. So this does not surprise me but. To finish his wide receiver, Fifty, seven on the day did not expect that only four point one points three receptions, ten yards, opo Beckham Odell Beckham Jr another one of these characters it's constantly up and down up and down you can't really get a good read on them finishes on the afternoon wide receiver fifty four, only four point, five points to recessions twenty, five yards the lowest put on the season so far. So I guess that's encouraging but at the same time to I can never get a good read on when Odell Beckham is gonNA. Have a great week and when he's going to have a bad one. Mike. Evans. Mike Evans entering this week is head over such a Tush reception. Every single one of the Games will that streak has been snapped in fact, the only two fantasy points in this one one reception for ten yards. Finishes the Afternoon Wide Receiver Seventy two against the Green Bay packers. Juju Smith Schuster with the emergence of Maple Tron Jujubes Ben on the down the downward trend only two point six points this week wide receiver sixty, four, two receptions for six yards says backed bag answered you with doing nothing in the all the other guys have been able to get involved James Washington Chase Klay Pool I mean even James Connor getting some solid production out of the backfield and Juju for some reason hasn't been able to get going. So look for due to have a nice Nice Ba- bounceback game next week and Todd Gurley Todd Gurley rb twenty on the afternoon only nine point seven fantasy points. He got twenty rush attempts and only forty seven yards to show for two point, four yards yards per carry just going to do it bad day for him. Hopefully, you can have a bounceback week and last but not least Kareem Hunt rb twenty, six on the afternoon seven. Point seven fantasy points only two receptions out of him for seventeen yards. Now again, Pittsburgh steelers absolute lights out in the run game. In fact, they were lights out all of the field against the Cleveland browns offense look for Kareem Hunt to have bounce back week I don't think the sticks for very long with him. Think he as well again, next week. Moving into the patients or panic segment. I am Juju Smith Schuster. Juju Smith. Schuster have some concerns about him. Given the last two weeks of production last two weeks he's been under ten fantasy points this week, he only had two point, six fantasy points to receptions for six yards, his highest output on the season so far for yards sixty nine that came in week one. So it does make me a little concerned about about his production in fantasy. And you see how much production everybody else's getting James Washington or Chase Klay Pool. Where's where's do all this? You know I think it's great that these guys are getting the production, but it makes me a little concerned about Juju so I will say this. I'M GONNA be patient with it for at least another week or so. because. I feel like Randy fichtner is gonNA come up with a great offensive game plan to get Juju warm involved now that he's gone involved Chase Klay Pool in James Washington in some of these other guys, and he's going to work to get Juju back and more involved these last two weeks so. I washed it. I haven't seen him get really targeted at all. It's not even targets like Sonke gets targeted and doesn't get recessions. He doesn't get targeted, and so I think that you're going to see a lot more things that. Are Developed for Juju to get him the ball, which would be great because you see now being done for Chase Klay. Pool. At really like to see hit them wrinkle in some that stuff for. Juju, Smith Schuster. So I will say that and I also will say that I'm GonNa be patient with him but you can't be patient with him with the expectation that he's going to be a wide receiver one for your fantasy roster or even wide receiver to do for the rest of the season in my opinion is going to be a flex play. And I can't guarantee you that every week he's going to be a must start flex play because it's going to be really hard the duration of the season to pinpoint which steelers wide receiver is going to have a fantastic day. It's great problem for the Pittsburgh steelers to have but not for fantasy owners not a good problem at all. So I will say that if you are looking at dump Juju Smith Schuster, don't feel bad if you have to do it to to get a big name off your roster and get somebody else that's more consistent totally understand but just WanNa make that apparent to all you out there that own Juju Smith Schuster next up Scotty. Miller. Scotty Miller. We've never even talked about this guy on the podcast wide receiver for the buccaneers. He's he's not roster bowl. Why is he ready to this week? One point six fantasy points week five, zero fantasy points Chris Godwin's back now. They have emerged Gronkowski into this. You've even seen plays designed for Gronkowski in this offense this past week against the Green Bay packers. Don't think that Scotty Miller, even worth a rosters I he might be worth a roster spot. I guess if you've got some seriously deep benches, but he's definitely, you can't can't consider playing him moving forward Antonio Gibson Guy that I talked about last week while I was really concerned about that I thought needed to have a good game to keep his reps and didn't play that. Great. He finished with nine point five fantasy points rb twenty, two on the afternoon nine rush stems thirty yards, four receptions, twenty five yards. I'm panicking I'm panicking and panicking and panicking. Guy By the name of JD. mckissick is stealing his snaps last two weeks has been happening I feel like it's only going to continue an increase until one of them gets hurt or this is going to be the system like a lot of the systems around the NFL there's two running backs. and Jd mckissick is going to be more of the passer passing down role running back JD mckissick finishes rb ten on the afternoon. A rush attempts forty yards six receptions. Forty three yards finishes with fourteen point, four fantasy points so. I don't. I'm concerned and I'm panicking if I'm Antonio, Gibson owner, I don't know if I can play him. Or Trade do something with them, but definitely think about it. Cam Newton. Cam Newton qb twenty, one on the year eighty, nine fantasy points. Those you do the math at home. Yes. He's only played four games. Yes. That averages out to like twenty two fantasy points per week sounds like a great number. But let me hit you with other numbers. He's got four passing touchdowns on the air. Five rushing touchdowns. He's only completed seventy nine passes, which is thirtieth in the NFL. Now, he's at forty five Russia temps, which is second in the NFL and he's got tied for the first amount of rushing touchdowns in the NFL. So, what's that tell you? Those numbers tell me that he's being used more as a running back then as a quarterback ember most of us were like, well, yeah, that's Camus and that's what he's supposed to be used as but what concerns me and makes me panic with Cam Newton is the fact that the Denver Broncos were able to shut him down. Shut him down. He couldn't couldn't move the ball through the air here and no touchdown no touchdown passes one rushing. But if you're holding new until one rushing touchdown a game, he's useless. Profanity is use US. You know he might be good for fifteen seventeen fantasy points, but it's Cam Freak in new and we're talking about here we want more things out of Cam Newton. The rushing ability is great but we want those six point, four point or five point of however many points. Your touchdowns are fantasy. You want those points we don't just want him for his rushing ability. So yes, I am panicking with Cam Newton. I feel like a lot more teams are going to take into consideration Cam Newton's running ability and make them pass the ball against them. I don't think that the New England patriots have enough at the wide receiver position. To be good enough to consistently beat teams, and if you shutdown cams legs, you're probably see that a lot of teams can beat New England moving into our be bold and hold or sell them while they're hot segment. First appeared in hearst hidden hers played Minnesota Finishes the Afternoon Titans six fifteen point seven fantasy points. For receptions seven yards, a touchdown I'm GONNA sell for him. His longest reception on the day was thirty, five yards that thirty five yard touchdown. So he only had three receptions for twenty two yards outside of that. He hidden her sauce only has one game above ten points on the season thus far other than this week in Atlanta scored forty points. In this one, they're not gonNA do that every week So it's not. Totally idol blue that he had a good week this week seeing that they scored forty points, but they're not gonna do that every week. So I'm not on Hayden Hearst Rob Gronkowski. GRONK tight end four in the afternoon eighteen point eight points before this week. GRONK. Was a much of a factor but I'm actually going to hold onto. Gronkowski. Injury to Jake Howard a couple of weeks ago. There was some talks about you know and and play by and playing better and I know I've had several conversations about Gronkowski, and what what his deal is in this offense. This was the first week. I was able to see Gronkowski really get involved in the offense and there was specific place drawn up for Gronk. There were several plays where it was fade route. Say he used to do in New England with Tom Brady just corner of the endzone stuff which was really great to see it looked like vintage gronk. So if I'm out here. And I got Rob Gronkowski right now I'm actually GONNA hold onto him I really do think coming down the stretch here with his game play if he can continue to play like he is in they get him more involved in that offense that Brady's GonNa continue to look for him I mean that's a safety blanket. Right there GRONK eight targets in this game highest target up output so far for the season. So that is encouraging Gronk last week had seven targets. So there are some more targets coming gronk sway I would hold onto rob Gronkowski chase play pool water eleven on the day four receptions seventy, four yards a touchdown. Played really well for the Pittsburgh steelers. Five touchdowns in two weeks I'M GONNA hold. Chase clay will probably just scoop them off waivers but I'm GONNA hold on. With caution. Now. Here's here's my only concern is that chase capable has not done anything yet with deonte Johnson fully healthy Dante Johnson. Hasn't been in the lineup last two weeks. I'm very curious to see how his production has impacted when Deontay Johnson's fully healthy and when they get Juju more involved in this passing offense I mean they got away from the last couple of weeks but there's A. Lot of mouths to feed their in Pittsburg can't really tell when he's going to. He's going to have a day or when he's not going to have a day but it does look like they want to get him the ball early and often, and he is a difference maker with the ball and San. So that's my only true to Chase Klay Pool why I'm holding onto him. Brandin cooks wide receiver five on the week nine receptions sixty eight yards. A touchdown is back to back solid weeks for Brandin cooks I'm going to hold onto them to believe it or not you. You probably are picking them off waiver wires at this point, and if you scoop them last week and you still have him I'd probably hold onto him last two weeks he's had nine and twelve targets the previous four weeks, twenty total targets. So the last two weeks alone, he has more on these last two. Weeks targets than he sat on the rest of the year any. This is also encouraging he also produced very well with willful airplane very well, and with several other players on that Houston Texans offense playing pretty well. So it is encouraging if you're brandin cooks owner I'm holding on Brandin cooks for right now in hopes that he continues to play well for the Houston Texans moving forward. The Swift Fourteen much Thames one hundred, sixteen yards he averaged eight point, two yards per carry. Per carry in this one great great averages two touchdowns on the day his average per carry on the right now is six point three yards per carry. Yikes. So I'm GonNa hold with Andrea Swift. My only concern with him though is he's only got twenty six Russia's on the season. Twenty, six. That's not a lot. Main using him more in the passing game leading, Adrian Peterson. Just eat it up on the ground but I think this was a real coming out party for De'andre Swift. I think that Detroit needs to get him more involved not just in the passing game, but in the running game and really start to full clauses offense through De'andre Swift Ronald Jones. Rb Three this. Week. twenty-three Russia Thames are one hundred thirteen yards, four point, nine yards per carry into td's. I'm holding. I got Ronald Jones couple of weeks ago off waivers. He's at three games over one hundred yards the last three games. He's established himself as the lead back there in Tampa Bay and you can tell that they want to get him the ball. I like. Ronald Jones think he's a must hold at this point thing. He can be very serviceable for you moving down the strides. Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz qb three on the afternoon twenty-seven fantasy points. Twenty one of forty two. Ts. Five Russia's forty, nine yards and eighteen. I'm saying Carson still I haven't bought back in that he is an elite cornerback. Don't believe that people should be picking him off waivers at this point healing completed fifty per you know just above fifty percent of his passes he's he's literally completing just about fifty percent of his passes for the season thus far I'm not totally bought in Zakar gets hurt this last week i. mean this offense is going to have literally nobody out there for Carson. wentz. I'm not bought in This was his highest put on the season so far was twenty seven point. So I'm not I'm not in on them. Don't pick them up and some if you have them. Now I WANNA talk about some waiver wire finds guys can possibly find this week for week seven bursts up on the list trae Burton. Now I know Alex has been the streaming option for the Indianapolis Colts tight end core however trae in has had a solid couple games that he's played this year three games so far averaging eleven point three fantasy points. With Moe Allie cock sidelined trae Burton seems to be the number one tight end for this Indianapolis Team and Philip Rivers seems to be going him going to pretty often cy would pick up trae bar in adult. If I'm going to start him I'm not completely sold on him yet but if he is out there in, you're in need of a pinch of for a bye week, I would be considering him as a top y waiver wire pickup this week. Jd mckissick he's been stealing a lot of the carries from in Tonio Gibson. In Washington finishes rb ten this week he's evolving and that Washington offense think he's a good pick up this week especially in Pr Leagues, Darren Fells Tight and fourteen on the year for the Houston Texans. he came he had this week twenty point by fantasy points last week thirteen point seven. So good couple of weeks for him. Give you're searching for tight ends that are hard to come by out there that are consistent. Darren sales might be a good option to grab Matt Ryan Some Matt Ryan on a couple waiver wires not sure exactly why I know people haven't been satisfied with his production so far this year. But if he's out there, he's on your waiver wire I'm suggesting you pick them up you can see the energy that he brings. After being called out about possibly being the quarterback of the future for the Atlanta. Falcons. Liked about him like that. He's got something to prove to show up there although his team's one in five I'm picking up Matt Ryan and stashing him on my bench or merely putting him in depending on which quarterback situation looks like Philip Lindsay Film Lindsay I've also seen out there on waiver wires. If Philippians he's out there and you're leagues suggests you guys get them with Melvin Gordon. Being, hurt and being sick Melvin Gordon's also facing league disciplined from the NFL are in early November. For his Dui, I saw that it was potentially going to be a three game suspension. So I'd be picking up Philip Lindsey and stashing him. He had a good week this week over one hundred yards rushing. So if Melvin Gordon does actually get suspended a nice couple game stretch there where Philip Lindsey has a solid production in fantasy lineups last but not least brandin cooks. Brandin cooks is out there on a lotta waiver wires feeding get last week. Definitely. Got Him this week. I'm seeing a dramatic uptick Brin brandin cooks, offensive play last two games over twenty fantasy points. I'm picking up Brandin cooks and I'm stashing them specially if this, Houston. Texans team is going to throw the ball over the place and score bunch points. Now, I wanNA take a glance at a new. Section of the PODCAST. We're GONNA have a I am section. This is the section where I think you can get guys for a lower market value and that can be impactful especially with the byways right around the corner or that are happening now for for a lot of the guys I up on the list Ronald Jones Ronaldo's three straight one, hundred yard games on the season so far. Ronald Jones is also third in the NFL in rushing yards on the season thing. Ron Jones a sitting on a lot of people's benches maybe out there on some waiver wires. If he's out there, highly suggested you guys trade something minimal for him get him on your teams and I'm I'm putting them right in my lineup. I have them sitting on my bench been sleeping on the last couple of weeks. I'm definitely putting him in my lineup moving forward chase Edmunds fifteen plus fantasy points in the last couple of weeks I'm getting. I, think that he's RB thirty on the year so far Kenyan drake thirty five but I think that by the end of the season chase edmunds is a top seventeen running back for fantasy. Willfuller V. Not many people know this but willful or is wide receiver nine on the year averaging eighteen point seven points per game right now. Wild, whoever thought that? You know just dating back a couple of weeks ago but Willfuller vs had a solid fantasy production the last two or three weeks I'm going out there I'm. Sure Willfuller v sitting on a lot of people's benches if if. If not then they are only he's only playing because of by weeks I'm going out there Investing in Stockton Willfuller be and I'm putting him straight into my lineup. Rob Gronkowski just like I mentioned before earlier in the podcast. GRONK is probably sitting on a lot of people's benches if not out there on waiver wire suggests you guys go and stash them in maybe even have to play him right away depending on what you guys have for by weeks of your tight ends thing that Gronkowski moving down the stretch here is going to be much more of a an offensive factor as we saw this week playing Green Bay Depot Samuels. This kid's been out. There are a lot of waiver wires I've Seen Depot I get it. He's been hurt last throughout the duration and the first portion of the season but people asleep on Deebo I. Mean Diva was legit and if you wash Sunday night football against the rams, you saw exactly why he's big, he's strong. He's physical mean everything like and he's definitely the number one target there in San Francisco I'm investing in some Deebo Samuel stocks you probably can get for the low right now going at him stash. Stardom do whatever you gotta do but you want this man on your roster last but not least Brian Tannahill. Cuba nine on the year I was able to pick this week off waivers. I was extremely satisfied. I didn't play him but with losing Dak Prescott, I was in dire need of a quarterback and went out grabbed. Ryan Tannehill very happy ninth. On the year for qb points is averaging twenty three point five, which is sixth for quarterbacks on the air. I mean, it's exactly what you want. I'm getting out there I'm going after Ryan Tannehill. Okay. Now, let's talk about some winners of week six who did this week benefit the most I up on the list the buccaneers buccaneers lose last week to the Chicago bears on Thursday night football. Tom Brady doesn't know what down it is everybody's laughing at them saying that they don't know what they're doing down in. Tampa Bay this week, they have a tough bounceback game to play the Green Bay packers and boy did they put on a show I? Mean this was an absolute clinic that the Tampa Bay buccaneers put on thirty eight unanswered points they win it thirty eight to ten I. Mean They couldn't have been any more share handed than that. Great Job buccaneers way to bounceback back. Guys deserve that win. San Francisco Forty niners absolutely embarrassed in week five by the Miami Dolphins. It was just it was devastating. I. These guys just looked horrific. They had to bounce back and play the rams. They entered this game two in three the bottom of the division they have to play the rams form one at the top of the. Division. They needed this game. This was like a must win for them and it was Inter division game and they played like a completely different football team. Really they really did. They took it right to the rams. Their defense was back. They did not look the same defense from a week ago playing the Miami Dolphins and they won that one broncos. Great Win, versus New England Patriots. broncos despite. Throwing two interceptions and only scoring eighteen points coming off the ball field goals, their defense hell England, twelve points, I mean they showed out. So congratulations to the broncos to advance two and three, and the week six have benefited the absolute most the number one team that have benefited. The most was the Tennessee Titans, the titans up and down game. They're just lucky they have Derrick Henry and lucky that the Houston Texans decided that they were going to go for a two point conversion were unsuccessful You know to put the game away and they had an opportunity to go down and tie the game and force overtime. The titans not only went down the field, but they there was a controversial catch by AJ Brown in the corner of the end zone that was called a touchdown. They couldn't find indisputable evidence. So they ruled at touchdown and then in overtime to have Henry and and win the coin, toss then have Derrick Henry just go the length of the fields and just put the team on his back. I mean congratulations Tennessee titans were staying undefeated. There was a lot that needed to go right for you guys in those last couple minutes of a game in a did. Flipping over to the other side, the biggest losers of week six. Number One, the Cleveland browns they took on the Pittsburgh. steelers was a heavyweight matchup or supposed to be a heavyweight matchup in the AFC. North Pittsburgh entered the game undefeated at four. No and the browns entered at foreign one YIKES DID CLEVELAND. Meet its maker steelers held to seventy five yards on the ground held Baker Mayfield to a hundred nineteen yards passing steelers absolutely trampled these guys. CLEVELAND COMING INTO THE GAME number one rush offense number, one points per game offense held a seven points in this one terrible loss for the Cleveland browns. Number to Cincinnati bengals. Cincinnati you were up by twenty one points in the second quarter twenty one points on the colts and the colts don't have a high scoring high powered offense. You guys just let them back in the game. Tough loss for you guys. But there's a reason why you guys only have one win on the season Green Bay packers yikes. This was brutal. Thought this game was GonNa be the match day turns out it wasn't. The buckner is absolutely took it to Aaron Rodgers in the Green Bay packers and. The worse loser of the week, the New England Patriots. I. Mean. We saw the Tennessee titans come off of Kobe restrictions and not being able to be in their practice facility and so on and so forth in their game moved around and they absolutely came out against the buffalo bills in put a beat down on them on Tuesday night football. New England patriots, you guys you guys are playing the Denver broncos. I mean drew lock is a starting quarterback. No knock Andrew Lock but I mean they they have nobody. And you guys only score twelve points in lose. Cam Newton stolen the ball and like the dirt and all over the joint. It did not look hot. Entire New England patriots, offense and defense didn't look great tough loss for the Patriots they dropped a two and three to wrap up likely do every single week less handsome awards. I up our top fantasy teams. These are individuals that had the highest outputs for the given week set just like normal fantasy roster one quarterback two running backs, two hours here as a flex in a tight and. Team number one to Shawn Watson. Running backs Derrick Henry. De'andre Swift Wide Receiver set Justin Jefferson Julio Jones Flex Willful or V tight end Anthony I. And taught fantasy team to for the given week. qb Matt Ryan running backs see age James Connor, wide receiver sets, AJ Brown brandin cooks, flex killin coal, and tight end. George Kill. Last. At least are MVP of the week goes to. Derrick Henry. It shouldn't be a surprise to absolute anybody not just because he had forty points and I hate when people put out there. Oh, this person should be the MVP because they had the most points the impact that he has on the Tennessee titans the way that they could just hand him the ball and watch him go I mean if it wasn't for him, this team would have not won this game against the Houston Texans he had two. Hundred sixty purpose yards on the day two touchdowns carried them the length of the field and scored the touchdown in overtime I mean, what else did you want from this man? He was carrying grown dudes like children on his back. He could tackle this guy. He was the clear MVP of the week and clear cut difference maker for that Tennessee Titans team congratulations. Derrick. Henry and congratulations to the Tennessee Titans staying undefeated. Good luck next week against the Pittsburgh steelers. And it's a wrap. This includes week seven kickoff. We're going to be back at it. First thing, Friday morning with all the need to know information who start who said favourable matchups non favourable matchups everything that you guys need to know to get you guys ready for this weekend's games.

Vegas Nation Week 4 Preview

"Vegas nation presented by sports mobile from station casinos. We're trying to bring the right kind of people in here we think that can build championship football team the most loyal fans in the world I know it hurts saying they've gotta make sure that they have some depth there and we know that they went one short linebacker kind of coming into the season just thinking hey this is something that's kind of being phased out a little bit in today's Nfl Hey guys let's get into this because we've got a lot to go over as the raiders are back home and practicing there's a lot going on with the linebacker ends is over in Alameda where the raiders are holding down practice today ahead of going into Indianapolis to face the colts we are back from the first game dot com or anywhere else you find your podcast and always leave us comments an anything that you feel like letting us know about we love hearing from you out there we'll place somebody somebody nickel packages and you need more defensive backs and linebackers and everything else but I think when you look what they did as far as getting young linebacker you bring in a commission there's a lot going on here with the team and who they're bringing in to help fill some voids so let's get started here at that linebacker position all station casinos don't forget to check out VEGAS NATION DOT com get the Vegas nation APP to follow all things silver and black and you can also find the show on Review Journal what started off in Minneapolis for this road ship that the raiders will be on and the raiders fell there to the Vikings thirty four to fourteen so we're gonNA break all of that miles and I'll get your take on this too I think when you look at this and you look at the fact that they're bringing in linebacker certainly a means that they're they're concerned about the injuries even though those guys are practice everyone tidy thing here and it is time for another episode of Vegas Nation I'm joined today in Studio With Adam Hill oh one of our readers writers and miles is to look for in the betting world as we head into week four of the NFL season and this again is the Vegas Nation podcast brought to you by SDN sports mobile therein ramps camp they liked him a lot but there's just that team is has super bowl aspirations and when you have super bowl aspirations it's hard for a seventh round voids they're all fortunately all of those guys practiced except for Marquel we of course we went to injured reserve but you have bontes perfect truly crack that roster so that's what he was on their practice squad in why he became available and so he's really excited to get things going now with the Raiders Indianapolis now they did bring up a just phillips in he's Linebacker Eh on the practice squad they signed him at the beginning of the season to the practice squad after he was he went to I are so what are we looking at miles when we look at this position and the depth of it and who the raiders are bringing in to help to fill in down and later in the show we're going to have something new for you here on Vegas Nation we're going to have todd do we are sports betting writer come in and give you a little bit and numbers and give me some winners and Alan instead of looking back at a guy like Brandon Marshall and I know they had them through the throughout the off season he was lining up as a one a lot of people were speculating. Well Hey that's a natural guy that you kyle wilber in in you head Moro all on the field on Wednesday so while they were limited that at least tells you that they do have a chance to play against Yes yes I did see you and I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think the fight part about the could allen is says it is getting thin avant birth with the elbow issue and me issue shoulders you Nicholas Moro at the Ankle Kyle Wilber the Quad Marquel let go in Dallas and they also brought in somebody I'm pretty familiar with in Dakota Allen who was a ram seventh round draft pick and actually he was June could the younger they clearly tried to get younger in the off season they went from one of the oldest teams in the league to the ninth youngest and now you're not looking for a guy that hey maybe the best option for this would bring back that's a natural guy that you would bring back if you are trying to compete like I mean if you're trying to compete right now and I think right now at a tells you that hey they're looking at employers because I talked about last chance you when Ronald Ali was part of the team but now he's the second player that the raiders have brought in from that show that's all net flicks and he rations and you need to replace a starter I don't think that's necessarily where they are they wanNA build depth and they want to be able to develop is I think Allen's one of those interesting definitely build around he's somebody that has a lot of personality and a lot of heart he he's really driven I dunno miles did you see that show yeah I mean he really is the type of person that he's basically exactly you think he is based off if you watch that show really really nice guy really polite guy lay your instead looking for the best option for later in the year down the road instead and I think that tells you a lot about where the teams bonded is right now all my agree ah I think part of that definitely is the Raiders WanNa stay young you have to be able to develop guys and I think it just goes back to what you're saying that's exactly what the WanNa do at this point they wanna be more in the development stages of things than they would be if you say okay you're you have real big playoff navy super last week three and that's what brings me to my next talking point here is Derek Carr has said that he's not overreacting this is something you wrote yesterday. Miles about the Raiders Tonio Brown was released and it was funny because Jon Gruden specifically did not mention Antonio Brown's name so that's kind of funny but at the getting right now miles from Derek Carr and maybe even the coaching staff around him as far as the sense of urgency or being concerned about the record Zippy Community College at that point he led the team in tackles so he was kind of a stand out in a star on the show so GRUDEN's been watching the show also and kind of maybe contact he's not afraid to get in there and hit the hole with authority and that's what you need from somebody who is a linebacker so you know he's not necessarily the biggest guy the interesting pass because he was at Texas tech at that burglary charge and then it was dropped that was you know he was already gone to ease I'm looking right now at NFL DOT com stat so they're kind of in the middle of the road where it comes to being able to defend the run it is still early again we're only and of course you don't like you can't necessarily judge a human based off interactions that you have in the locker room I think that that is sometimes for conversation afterwards so you know I think one of the things about him is that he can play and he he's one of those types of linebackers that loves doing some scouting off of it and looking to see who he's bringing into this team but this is another very charismatic player though is somebody who is young that I think that they could but I think that's where these this linebacker position is going in more than new age of the NFL's teams are spreading things out further but you have to still be able to hit you have to still be able to try to stop the run I think that's something that he can do and as a right now the raiders gave up let's see I believe it was a total so far on the season at three hundred and thirty seven yards you have jj Nelson who started last week he was the guy who's getting reps in practice he got hurt toward the end of the preseason so that's why he wasn't necessary they don't have that guy settled right now and you had a guy in Ryan grant started the season there at that spot and I was gone and so main go-to guy for the most part in this offense and then you've got Darren Waller as I would say the number two options he's been the number one option at tight end so that's going to what it is but at the same time I think there's a difference between the sense of urgency and not panicking and from this century from Derek Carr is that really Jon Gruden dangerous precedent that we set as reporters but like he was never anything but good to me when we were with the rams recognize me when we were talking to him yesterday we had right now being at one and two I think that there definitely is a sense of urgency. There's always a sense of urgency whenever you lose a couple of games in a row who and that just sort of I is really good wide receiver and you have a tight end who is very much emerging you can move from all around he can block can catch and that's great but you don't really have anybody else affect how much you throw downfield when you've got The guy that you look into the most being kind of more of an underneath guy for the most part but you know Derek cars two weeks I understand these backing up positions but like at the same time what did you do that if that's what you're going to do for hospitals I guess being one and two and the last two losses specifically that he's not getting down on things the sky is not falling so what kind of censor reline media but why did you bring him back from Jacksonville and give him this guaranteed money give him a big signing bonus if always going to do is play six snaps in at that wide receiver position that you can say all right this is number two wide receiver we know that in so they they call the flanker position Z position in that often weeks in a row so despite having the come from behind despite facing big deficits he's still not throwing the ball downfield and I think that is concerning because yeah fit for a king he actually learned enough of the offense that he can be a part of an oath by the way there's Keelan dos here who Jon Gruden likes to say that's your story but Derek Carr cited the fact in the post game press conference the other day that he only had seven completions and that is troubling like he knew it he pointed out he wanted it average depth of target is under seven yards it's one of the lowest in the entire league and this is a team that's been behind for almost the entire game you talk about the fact that hey there's not another go to guy at wide receiver Tara Williams has typically been a deep threat guy but now he's GonNa take on a whole added role as the throw the ball downfield and they're just not doing it and it was very much of a concern to me it might have just jumped out to me more than anyone else and I might be too caught up on this oh he just wanted us to have a storyline are storylines he did it for us now the thing I'm concerned about I guess with car and I think it's all related because I don't know that Derek Carr did either but I'm not positive positive on that as I am on the fact that Jon Gruden didn't mention his name miles watching it I think yeah I think he did the same thing everybody else to know it it's almost to me like he's he's trying to make sure that he's accurate he's trying to make sure that he's connecting with passes and he's not he said we had a guy here that we expected to be a big part of the offense something something along those lines yeah yes that's big yeah they're treating him like Lord voldemort right his wall yesterday both kind of talked about this in their ass about it so that's one thing but they were talking about how there had to shift in the offense when uh I'm telling you because I know it I don't know that to me is not as much as it is just something that happens but the other thing about pushing the ball downfield he was talking about this on Wednesday during his press conference and what he was saying was that sometimes yes there are shots that are scripted down the field but when you're right and the reason for that but at the same time so when you have that shift happened you go from two guys being your top two to one well if I do that then we all know how that goes and I've been in this league long enough and I've been unfortunately in those situations so many times where you're basically saying that he's behind in that he has pushing the outfield and he's not taking chances is a concern to me and they're they're certainly has been game script that is favorable going downfield and he just hasn't done it it's a product of the receiving core it's also a product of the offensive line not being is good the last two weeks is it wasn't the first week but you've gotta take chances you've the chances because when we saw him have his most success in the in the year that he was potentially in every P he was pushing the wall downfield he was taking some chances and then consistent offensively and right now I feel like this season is already reminiscent of last season the raiders are virtually almost in the same place with they were you know get back into the game etcetera etcetera that he knows how those things can turn out and I think what are you saying is that I don't want to just throw interceptions on jump balls so competitive team and so far Jacoby percents proven that he can still eat this team that they are going to be a very competitive team down the line and their division so I saw a shift in his game and I think you haven't really seen him adjust back to being able to go down field and I and I don't know if it's if he doesn't want to stay in the pocket and he doesn't WanNa take the alert so I mean when you look at last season and the foreign twelve record that the raiders had and the way that they've played in the last couple of games because I correct me I think the there I agree with you Adam first of all in that they need to take more shots down the field probably but I think in the first game where we saw that what's if he doesn't want to risk his quarterback rating or I don't know what it is if he doesn't want to face the ire of groovy those interception I'm not sure what but the fact that he's not you double coverage but that probably is not the best football play because then at a certain point you're just going to get intercepted and what he's I think he basically said something to the effect for they go onto the stage like the PR people prep them with that and they tell him that so yes obviously want people to know that but like I maybe I'm being when you get things like second short sometimes third and short those are those are good times take their shot plays and if you are having that kind of that was when they were keeping things under control offensively they were converting downs there were sustaining drives and so you have an opportunity to take those shot plays nearly as much of a part of things in the first two weeks now you see him catch a flea flicker for twenty nine yards that's well and good but can he be more consistent you got somebody like Trevor Davis that you've trade season at this point except for last season they were owned three as they headed they have Cleveland ahead and they won that game and not quite like a back and forth type the Oakland raiders forever but we are still later next I think it's going to be a they'll get an army coming into things change with the game plan coming into this one something that we haven't seen yet that may be that they're planning on rolling out against the colts and you know the colts by the way bit of a chauffeur Derrick Harden who knew that I was going to be doing that but like I don't know that that's as much of a thing as it is like I just happened to have seen this now the people thought they were going to be a much different team when Andrew luck got her into copay percent was coming in there was kind of like a big alarm going off over there like are the colts still going to be they are they are a very different team so people thought they'd be a different team they're right they are they're just not a terrible team they're pretty good team and I think a team that has a chance to success in if you're not sustaining drives and you're not getting the area where they pull the high strike areas until like you're not going to be able to take those shots if you're not to be a playoff team because they are different we talked about you know car and his depth of target Jacoby percentage behind him I think he's last in the League at around five and a half yards Robert I think they've only scored two at twenty four points in the last two games so I would think there would be some kind of chain behind angered short chasing defenses have a tendency to take those deep shots away yeah you could throw a fifty fifty ball in well two things about that that I would say I think the first is that you know when he cited the faculty at Seven incompletions these guys a lot of times they look at their sats just uh-huh very good team offense of lightness helped them out a lot and guy like Marlin Mac that's able to pound the rock consistently and with the ailing linebacker situation that we talked about a target because he's throwing a lot of underneath balls they're running the ball a lot and relying on defense which is not really something that they've done in the engineer they're just a very different team but I think so and the giants game that one I think the giants are like getting three so we're we're the sharps add on some of these games coming up for the week Yo on that game sharp action but the giants Washington's Interesting Game Casino Barkley is obviously out for four to eight weeks and he's only worth as a running back they're not worth as much as back line is only worth a half point two one point to the line but odds makers were really impressed with Daniel Jones replacing Eli manning they think he's worth way more is team right now the colts and what they're able to do even if T. Y. Hilton because he hasn't really it seems like he might not be playing he was injured last week and you know we'll see exactly who's playing and who's not You mentioned t y Hilton questionable I know Darius Leonard is in protocol there's the giants numbers in their games of the year by three or four points and respected better bet on the giants on three different games after the adjustment the public is going to be on the colts that one all right L. Todd give us some other numbers here on the week because I know a lot of people kinda like the redskins issues going on with that team there's a lot of guys that are questionable to you know maybe even doubtful for this game for the colts but it's still of a really really good team brutal stretch of five straight games away from home second straight on the road before going to London to take on the bears the colts have been playing well without Andrew surprised that betters took plus seven minus one ten in the West Gate moved to the colts minus seven even as you mentioned six and a half at a few places the talent that can do different things than we've seen them do in the past and Frank Reich is another genius like I rave about Sean mcvay as miles knows the bookmakers expect the public to be on the colts in this one teasing them money line in straight up bets so see if the rate is could turn it around here but his Oakland look terrible against the Vikings there to thirteen and one against the spread in their last sixteen as road underdogs and of course there in this raiders visiting Indianapolis Right now todd it's looking like the raiders are getting six and a half what is the action on this game six and a half at a few places around town Heidi you're going into a road environment against a very well coached team that was dealing with some injuries but certainly is very intimidating imposing up against another really huge challenge for the raiders as promised earlier in the show we have our sports betting columnists dewey in the house and he is going to break down the I almost on the same level with Frank Reich that guy is unbelievable as a coach. He's very forward thinking innovative he does a lot of things that I've been very impressed by so of dealing with last week I think there was communication issues on offense and here are going it's not quite as loud but it's another intimidating imposing environment that they are going into GM south point in Caesar's consensus line seven the cold seven point favorites over the raiders at home and couple oddsmakers. I talked to her actually what kind of dynamics did they present for this raiders team and specifically for the defense well it's going to be another challenge going into a hostile environment which we saw the raiders not do a very good job backers are in it be put to the test with somebody like Mack who comes right up the middle and they have great tight ends as well over there so Adam when you look at the the chargers they don't trust the charges like do the Patriots in cowboys who covered the spread the last two weeks against Miami though the night football cowboys at the saints the public is going to be all over the cowboys in that one they love playing small road favorites cowboys open three points the spread then saquon Barkley so whatever they lose with Barclay they're gonNA make up that and more with Daniel Jones big upgrade over Eli Manning I know the West Gate of justice trends do favor the charges since they moved out of San Diego they're eleven three into against the spread away from La the biggest bed game in the weeks can be on so the giants just by three at home they have a bad defense but the redskins are on three and there were worst teams in the League on that one could this be the week the dog thank you again for coming in and we're going to get back here to Vegas nation shortly thanks so this episode of Vegas Nation will be right if you're looking for a teaser better the week might WanNa go with the Patriots tease them down from seven point favorites at Buffalo they're twenty eight and one straight up last twenty nine games at against the bills with Tom Brady at quarterback they're twenty three overall straight up last thirty one but brady was not involved oftens so we're going to see if the cowboys of real here the saints obviously lost drew brees but they have a solid team all around they won that Seattle back.
