"You obviously have Todd Gurley in 2015, which injury aside, he's still been one of the better running back since he came in. Rob, have a scene has been a crucial player for them. You've got Tyler higbee and farrow Cooper in 2016, both fourth round picks, and that's what you like to see. You like to see those fourth round picks that are blowing people away. So pharaoh Cooper hasn't exactly been a star wide receiver, but he's one of the best return men in the league. In 2017, Gerald Everett the tight end in the second round and he's been solid. You have Cooper Cup in the third round. He's been great. John Johnson in the third round also, the safety for them who has been fantastic. Great. He's a big part of why that defense works so well. And then evaluating guys from 2018 on gets a little more difficult, but I think every single player that they have drafted in the last three years is still in the league in some capacity or another. Many guys starting. I shouldn't say many. Several of those guys are starters for whatever team they're on. Many of whom are still on the rams. It's been a solid three years, even if they don't have, they don't have the all pro type players in the last three years, again, I would mention that they have had less than they didn't have a first round pick. The last three years, they didn't even have a second round pick in 2018. So I would hope that Holmes is a little bit more conservative with trading away first round picks. The rams have been just really quick and this is I think a point to jump in. In the chat, it's relevant as well. Then you take the best talent available, not just a position in need like the past few years of quin Trisha, Brennan says. What I think.

You guys get chris and thank you for joining us again. For another season are crazy. They this thing is ahead of schedule for you right. You thought it was going to be one thing when you got there but it's ahead of schedule for even you. Is it not well. I mean i get to the point that at right now didn't affect you. What happened this quickly. I said it would be within four to six months. It's been within four to six days. We just sold out the prudential center last night in newark with eighteen. Thousand people. Go to arthur stadium in new york city next week for twenty thousand people. We are definitely on a roll. And more importantly. I am on a role as the greatest celebi. Prognostic ever to be in the lebatardshow and the only reason why i didn't win last week was because i was in the mountains with fauzi playing festival and didn't have enough reception my picks but if i would've given my picks i wanna want all of them because every single one that i picked one so it was bad reception at screwed me last week but this week tournament rocket you were performing at this festival or you were. Tell me tell me. More i this. We don't talk enough about your musical side. So we're on tour right now with fauzi. We had a tour that got postponed. I think four times during the the lockdown. So we're back out on the road so we're with fuzzy and i do five shows pasi then they go home for a day that i go to dynamite on the wednesday and then back out on the road again so i'm in newark airport a- getting ready to go to detroit and head over to angola michigan and then grand rapids this week cleveland and flint michigan. So i'm nationwide man. I'm all over the place. Now what's the matter with you. Jericho your star. You don't need to work like that. Why are you working so much. That sounds crazy schedule. Well i'll tell you what magic about it. I've been on the road. Since i was nineteen years old and for the last year and a half we pretty much weren't weren't able to be on the road so now that we can You wanna get up there and do it and experience it and so do people and people everywhere are just excited to go back to shows again so It's it's one of those things where it's like. Yeah this is a busy schedule but considering the alternative doing nothing and staying home for your and a half that's Very much welcomed by everybody both in the band and he w as well. What do you regard as the biggest thing. Eighty w has done other than sign. You like what do you regard as the moment that rivals the idea of you being there. I think just the shift to now. We have the cool factor. Which when you get the cool factor. That's when you get true Momentum was signed the pug and the right afterwards brands anderson coal and now it's safe to come the aid that people are wanting to come in whereas before we had to convince them a bit you had to recruit them. They'd recruit jon moxley and fdr and matt hardy most guys now there's no more recruitment because the proof is on screen every week and then the crowd that were in the numbers that was doing. So i think that's the biggest thing is we now becomes the cool place to go where everyone wants to be there. Both in the business and people watching the business so aws like you said. It's a little bit ahead of schedule for what we were expecting. All right now we have become the biggest and the coolest wrestling company in the world Just over the last four to six months. I'd say those. Wwe care for its wrestlers. The way w doug you know. I'm not gonna say over my and having a much better time and age of you and feel a lot more respected as a performer and as a creative entity and as an athlete in. Aws i ever did in.

Let's go for widnall team their team roster wise Close when now team. So of course. Fired gan quinn. It's not his fault that they just did not assemble a good vases that superbowl caliber roster you know just like a side note to slick football general. I don't see the falcons making back to super bowl. Matt ryan period. It's gonna take a lottery. Veterans defense rebuild so thousands of dumb move in general. But hey mike. Mike davis much better. If you ask me. And i think that gus edwards aaron jones i think those are really solid back. At least you have solid war. It's work is work and that's what you want. That's a again. Like the difference between redrafting dynasty is like at work in return. Yeah you'll be good but once you give them that offseason to kind of decide who bogus to work. You know could change quickly. If you're not productive that but i got the intact prescott mascots have middle of the pack middle of the pack quarterback at best okay. So he's not arguing. Aaron jones are. He's probably about middle of the pack. You go to his rb to now. That's pretty much you look at these other teams..

"The reason i'm so fascinated. I literally have no talents. I can't do anything so the fact that anyone can do. Okay hurry up. I all kinds of news working here today. Nick serianni makes it official naming jalen hurts walking. Tell us that's right. And this is what nixon jailings. Starters done a great job. We wanted them to take the reins and take advantage of the opportunity that he got and we feel like the preseason the ad he did that now of course. This was the anticipation here. But they brought in gardner minch that we've talked about deshaun watson and interest from the there so basically this just confirms kind of what we expected jalen hurts in fact will be the starter in philadelphia for week. One another interesting story kind taken. Place here. we've got a ravens backfield now. That's wondering in the wake of jk dobbins what direction they will go. Todd gurley did visit the team back in june but we are hearing that. That's not necessarily on the inevitable. It's not necessarily going to happen at this point right now. The ravens looking at gus edwards as being their star or their starter justice hill tyson hill. Also guys that are on the roster but right now. The team is going to stick with gus edwards as part of being one david bahktiar. This one obviously is a big situation for the packers here now. We know that he tours acl back in december. The wonder was when he would be ready to come back. But the team did place in on the pup list that means that he will miss the first six weeks of the regular season. This is aaron rodgers blindside blockers so no doubt significant for an offensive line already. A little bit.

"They also thirty merited. Kamera is the only running back to do that last year. So that's pretty accompany. You know if gaskin has that type of upside now again. It's you stretch clearly because he's not albuque- but the dolphins treated him as the guy and you tell me. Malcolm brown is the one that they brought in to take him off the field. At this point you know we keep saying the the dolphins in the falcons. It's like mike. Davis bows gadsden. Keeps getting by The dolphins often divided think is good. brian florez told peepers go that they love house. Gaskin no so he's in a great spot. And you know this is a team that's going to be competitive I think the offense is actually gonna perform. Maybe better than people think with with two compared to where he played last year so To me mas gaskin might be a third round player by the time. You know the season's over stay healthy and it was somewhat fluky. No he had a lower leg injury which was was disappointing but he missed two games because And you saw the encouraging thing is when when he went out they went right to the next guy and then make it a committee you know so they like to use one guy and miles. Gas seems to be that guy at adam. You'll love this. His he had an eight game stretch. That i think rivals any of the second. Your backs. six-game stretches his final. He's started his first game week. Three at jacksonville. The next eight games. He was on pace for sixteen hundred. Forty eight total yards and ten touchdowns that included sixty two catches. He scored thirteen or more. Pr fantasy points in eight of nine games beginning three. I think just people are going to say. Am i addressing a good running back. He averaged four point one yards per carry as long as carry. This season was twenty six yards. Which is nothing special. He fumbled at the end of it. He was a seventh round draft. Pick i think people should not ask that question as often as we have referenced early in this show why i think they should ask him my drafting a running back who could get twenty touches a game at the game. If he's not good then he's gonna todd gurley it and he's going to get replaced. You know. i mean that it is usually know how many bad running like look at what happened. Mike davis last year. This is why. I don't think talent matters quite as much as you think it. Does i think situation and roll matters the most knocked mission to not gonna keep your role if you're bad saying he's bad i'm not saying he's back. You're you're right. Adam because davis is a great example. He started struggle at the end and they started to use other guys. They use samuel. Moore's running back it was. It was a frustrating situation. You know for people that were riding. Mike davidson the playoffs tigers. Another good example that Away ha you know what. David montgomery is a good example..

"I said anybody that offers me any running back for george. Low can have them and it happened. I had acres of like he goes. I'll give you hit or something go done. There was no negotiation. There was no like how can you throw forth on like just a by any running back. I'll take it you know and Though it it it just kinda goes to show. You could have picked up a lot of these running backs you know. A lot of people say that they do not like handcuffing dynasty. And i do understand the concept that you want. Maximize your range of outcome of winning versus minimizing your losing. But you know when you're dealing with thirty rauscher spot. It does not take much of an investment to acquire a handcuff especially when everybody perceived acres to be clear bell cows where nobody really wanted henderson. The savvy people. I think the people that they were saying pick up gautrey for hinton this is pre acres you know it because he's a twenty three year old running back on his rookie contract and he's proven that he's can be effective when given opportunity and now it looks like he's gonna happening opportunity for injury. You could probably got him for at both. Maybe a third round pick. You know you could probably swing your seven perceive reform. You know he. Was you know anybody had any type of interest in like but now you see how fast values can change. You know when you're now seeing henderson go in the fourth or fifth round redrafts. It's really hard to figure out where his long-term dietary value is. Because i do think he is just rental because even when given the opportunity he got hurt you know he had multiplications when todd gurley was injured and he was never able the role you know what do a lot of zone injuries himself. Last year he had opportunity came makers struggled at to beginning of the year. They didn't trust them..

"We're going to bring you back. It's kind of like when you break up with your significant other and you realize the grass isn't greener on the other side. You you realize you missed what you have and you don't appreciate what you have until you lose it just think about that talk girlies out there. He's a free agent. He's on the open market. La just suffered a major devastating loss with the cam maker news while tearing his achilles during training not even in training camp but just training on his own now. I could see that. I could see a return happen now. It's gotta be right for talked early. It's gotta be the right system the right contract and the right fit for todd gurley. But i understand it's brutal. What the la rams are going through right now. Losing your star running back who was just about to break onto the scene. A week before training camp opens up. It's a brutal loss but you're going to have to move on from him and good teams will find a way to move on and have the next guy step up and maybe taught girly. Is that next guy now. I'm giving maybe a sixty forty tents sixty. Yes forty percent. No because they're looking for running back. Who knows their system and todd gurley knows their system. There wasn't a there was maybe a couple years ago. There was a chance where todd gurley. People were thinking. He was the envy people leak. He was putting up fancy numbers left and right he was leading. La to their first playoff game in the first super bowl. Remember that talked early was a man in l. a. and they just ran out of town but now he can. How how great would that be to a story bookending. You run todd gurley outta town and then he comes back like from you'll want me now. you really want me now. That would be so funny because he knows that system he knows that running game like the back of his hand and it's a great running game too. You have the zone. Reed coming off tackle. Todd gurley knows how to run. That notes had a perfectly find the holes and he's not shy and he knows the strengths and the weaknesses of the nfc west. He knows his strength of bobby wagner. He knows the strength of he knows the weaknesses of bhutto baker. He knows the weaknesses of two quasi tart. He knows strengths and the weaknesses of the teams in the nfc west. What do go that. The rams went to the super bowl two thousand eighteen. It's not that long ago. And he was setting the world on fire and he was one of the top dominant running backs in the league. Back in two thousand eighteen now. I'm not thinking. I'm not saying that it's going to happen right away. They could go in a different direction. But that's a direction that the los angeles rams could go into to replace one of their best up and coming young running backs in the league today. 'cause they're going to need to replace them with somebody they just can't sit back and say oh our depth will fall back and we're going to be good because sean mcveigh's offense is a run first offense just like many teams in the nfc west. Just like the forty niners with cow shanahan just like russell. Wilson up in seattle are a run first option speaking of the nfc west and keep it in in the nfc west man. It's good to see the goodguys get rewarded. It's good to see the goodguys broken off party at fred. Warner's house man. that's crazy. It's crazy to see this guy now. If you don't know the news let me break it for you. All pro linebacker. Fred warner and the forty niners just reached an agreement on a five-year extension. That will tie him to the san francisco forty niners through the year. Twenty twenty six now. This guy's a former third round pick for. Byu warner was entering. The last year of his contract is raking contract and dare. I say he's one of the best. If not the best linebacker in the game to day. Wow that is huge. News huge news. It's huge news because this guy is the leader of that defense this guy now. Linebacker is one of the most prolific and when the most difficult positions to play on the defense. You gotta be smart. You gotta have the fiscal tangible and mental fortitude to play the game and it's just so difficult back with team honestly and it couldn't happen to a better guy now he's gonna make five years ninety five million contract he's gonna make about forty point five million in guaranteed money which makes him the highest paid inside linebacker in the nfl. Right now up next guide. Indianapolis a guy named darius leonard. Who's just going to probably beat by one dollar. he's proud. He might be petty. His agent might be on the phone. Say fred warner got this deal. Let's get him a deal for my guy that's about one one dollar more. But warner whose only twenty four he's young was selected in third round of the two thousand eighteen draft. He's a third round pick in. This should be a great story for anybody in the nfl. You know what this guy who was a third round pick. He worked his butt off. He went to a small school in. Byu and he worked his butt off. He did the right thing was later on and off. The field kept his nose clean and he got rewarded. Oh by the way. He's probably one of the best linebackers we've ever seen play the game now. The byu product has finished with one.

"You're not going to be able to get Jason Brett. So when you're down the line, it goes with all the young Mosley and K one right down the line. I could name a bunch of guys in that situation, which also leads to what you're saying about Draft picks. You trade away. A couple of ones in a three Those are guys that could work for. I'm not going to say cheap labor because it's still you know a lot of money, but it's far less than you would if you have to go out and buy a guy, the free agency saying with Julio Jones We could give up a second and afford to get Julio Jones. Now we're not gonna have any draft picks. 1st 2nd 3rd 4th or that could affect the fifth round. And then you know, how do you bring those guys back? We're talking about If you don't have younger options coming up, you know whether it's a couple of offensive lineman, banks and more whatever so that that's the cycle of life in the NFL is the new blood and bring a new energy and but also those guys make a lot less money than the older players, and it's because of the older players. That set it up that way by going to a rookie salary cap that salary. Well, it is. It's a salary camp. It's all started. Yeah, it's just a wage gap, which they they didn't have before. No, and it's just again. You just start looking at the positions what Jimmy's making versus what Lance would make Along the offensive line because you just gave Trent Williams a bunch of money. You got to find cheap labor along the offensive line, while Aaron Banks and hopefully Jalen Moore, which would be less than a million a year for those guys, you know you go on down line. Angry. Thomas is a third round pick. He's projected contract is four years $4.75 million. I mean, like you said, what if read as another great year. What's forever going to be making 10,000,012 year? Well, this guy's making less than a million, so in order to fit everything together, you just have to have puzzle pieces that were some guys are going to make the money and other guys aren't and that's where the draft becomes so important. So when people say Okay, We're gonna have a two and a four. For Julio. That's no big deal. Well, not only do you lose that, but you lose the ability to have the cheap labor and at some point it catches up to you and I think at the end of the day, it's not that the 40. Niners couldn't do it. It's just as you just pointed out a bunch of guys on one year contracts in addition to having to give Big contracts out. The guys who have earned it. It just doesn't add up. You just You just can't do it. So you gotta get campaign them all campaign long. Yeah, I guess it's hard. I mean, go back. And it wasn't too long ago that Jon Gruden traded Khalil Mack. Yeah. And what was his thought. You can't have two guys making $20 million more on the roster. We already got Derek Carr. Look at the L. A Rams roster. How many games How many guys they got on that roster? They make $20 million. Yeah, look at that now. I mean, how long was it was that 52 on defense and the quarterback and look at all Make 20 million. Ramsey makes 20 Millionaire and Idol makes 20 million in the quarterback. Stafford makes it Right now. Yeah, Anybody else? I'm missing on that team, and that's That's why you got to, you know, eat the money on Todd Gurley, and he was obviously not the same player. He was. Don't even have Stafford Stafford. Maybe make it a little less than that. But they got to $20 million year players on defense. They do. Yeah, you hit it right in the head. Stafford's of 27. Donald's at 22 a half and jailings right at 20. So you got three brothers some that think they're too top. Heavy. Yeah, it's just too much to put into three players. You got to be careful there. And Robert Woods is at 16.2 and letter Floyd's at 16 and Cooper Cups at 15. 7. Got a bunch of guys make it 15. Plus, you know. Yeah, so that's that's what it is, though. So anyway, yeah, you got to try to balance it out. So that's an interesting piece that Mattia Destro about 15 minutes away. We get you caught up. We got your foreplay. If you have missed some things over the weekend, we get caught up on everything.

"Including the Chiefs and the Bucks. Gotta stay out West. Gotta stay in that competitive. NFC West. I gotta go. And look at the Rams. I told you at number six. I had the Niners. I got the Rams that four. Why? Because they went 10 and six last year with the quarterback that they didn't even want. Quarterback who can't move a quarterback who was now going to languish with the Lions for as long as they decide to keep him there, probably draft a quarterback and tell him to hit the bricks. Jared Goff. The Rams have Matthew Stafford now. That's not to say, say that Matthew Stafford is a world beater. That's not to say he's the most elite of the elite. But he sure as hell is an improvement over God and for a team that went sentence six last year. Who had the number one defense in the league, only allowing 18 points per game. Had the 22nd ranked offense. Jared Goff. Isn't OK. Quarterback. He can be. More than OK, Quarterback. Look at the numbers that he put up with 32 touchdowns when they went to the Super Bowl. That was easy when you had a Todd Gurley, whose body was still in pristine shape. It's easy to do when he was out there. But Matthew Stafford should allow.

"At the real Gresh. That's at the real Gresh. We're into the final hour coast to coast and border. The border in America's had known as Canada. You have found the dress show here on CBS Sports Radio. I don't know what the hell is going on with the Los Angeles Rams. They're running their organization is if it's a game of Madden in training for Matt Stafford, so they give away a quarterback who had gone to a Super Bowl for a quarterback who has not gone to a Super Bowl. And Oh, yeah, By the way, there's a bunch of draft picks that they're connected to that as well. Mean your football that bad And then you you start to think about Who the guys you want to go get You know, you'll treat this guy for a pick and that guy for a pick and you were gonna bring in this person and bringing that person and all that kind of stuff. And, yeah, Don't know, man. I look at it and scratch my head. Look at it and wonder how did they fall out of love with these players? How did Jared Goff be viewed like Brandon cooks? How did Jared Goff ended up being viewed like Todd Gurley where they got the money? And then it was? Yeah, we don't want you anymore. That's the part. I don't get it. Understand 855 to 1 to four, CBS 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 also talking Tom Brady and the Super Bowl. Is this the wind? The Patrick Mahomes is going to need over someone like Tom Brady. To be able to when his career is said and done. Say, Hey, I'm Justus. Good is the goat. Yeah. Is this already cut and dried, that Brady's to go and nobody is really gonna be able to touch him. He's almost like the Wiz. I'm the Wiz, and no one could meet me. That's Tom Brady. Maybe Tom Brady is like the Wiz. You just can't touch him because This run to the Super Bowl this year. Has proven that Tom Brady could do it a different way. But it wasn't about the system that he had always been in for 20 years. It wasn't about the coach on the sideline for him this year. And and that's not to say that well, he's more important than Bella check and all this kind of stuff, then you know. Ugh. This is adding a layer to the legacy of Tom Brady like this is now He's putting a cherry on top of his career Sunday, and he might be adding other Cherries on top of the career Sunday. Like if Tom Brady had walked away at the end of his run with the New England Patriots, and said That's It has been a great career. I'm done. It would have been. You know, it would have been slow singing and flower bringing, obviously, for a part of the NFL world. It would have been well really in New England, and then it would have been party time everywhere else and people would have given Brady is just do And we would have realized that you know, this guy is every bit as good as people say he is Western for you, Chris. Yes, sir. Okay, so I have to get out of this because it's a fascinating topic. If you out, let's take New England fans. Out of the picture. Okay, if you asked everyone else Who's the greatest to ever do it at quarterback? What percentage before this season would have said Brady and your eyes and then now? If he wins this seven Super Bowl. What is the percentage of people that say he's the greatest quarterback of all time? And I'm talking about non New England? No good question. I would say 60 to 65% of the people before this year would have given it to Brady, if not Maybe pushing 70%. You know, I would say that people have hopefully been able to rationalize some of the NFL investigations of the last decade and realized that in Washington and New Orleans and New England there were some shams that went on the people really want to dig into it. Cause I still think there will be those who will be like deflate gate just deflate gate that who won't give up on that. It's like those people who won't give up on Oh, those guys in the steroid era but cheaters But now I think Win or lose ship were in the were in the low high 80 low 98 percentile. I think now most people look at it. As okay. You went and did it somewhere else, and you had a great year like it's hard to fathom ship. And I was trying to think of this because I know these are the kinds of discussions that you and I would get into. But there are guys who played late into their career. Like every time Tom Brady would come up, we'd have some old timer who would call and be You know, and, uh Um, George. Glenda. Listen, George Bland at the end of his career could barely get out on the field. You know what I mean? Like Brady is still playing in a very high level. I don't know. Ship if we have had a guy In major team sports who has been as productive in their 21st season as Tom Brady has been this year. Big, cocky God, there's two guys, I think of correct me if I'm wrong, Younger and Gordy Uh, there, you know..

So how do you kind of got the feeling? I'm going to the reports out there? But after today, and they left, you got the feeling that they were able to move on from here in Boston. I'll see that I will bring him on Saturday nights like that. Don't you done? Okay, So, speaking of it, and they mentioned you come to sing very well. It's just a little too. But if you had to say the writing was on the wall, it seemed like everyone had expected that it's gonna happen. But they hinted at it. And let me think about this When you think it was obvious to you and the others will come to see me. Nothing so closely. That gearbox is not gonna be in l a my slumber. You don't know where the wild card playoff in Seattle I'm sure Bob undergoing some surgery so that he could be best one playoff, Sean today said where he's doing this out so we can have him back before that guy off. And then suddenly that we came to me based on my walking act like we hope to be ready and then really what I think what it was the critical turning point without backup John Mulford started density talking wild card playoff, and Jared Goff was the only available backup. Now at that time, we didn't know yet, that here God had told her to say I can play I want I'm ready to go. Not after the game, but I thought it would be pretty note stating that was anything that they started Wilford and got healthy enough beating with that, but the starter and looking back sorry, speculation short here, the other half of the cornea and what it's really interesting to me because of how it played out. Absolutely. There was somebody opened from Sneed and Bebe that they will be in there with him, and I'll ever said to me was because It was never shown me, Please guy. This wasn't a few in the draft and said, This is our perfect circles. But now he has selected seems like Matthew Shepard to run his offense. It's kind of like the way what was old Man Nemo in Chicago, he said. Hey, Mr Biscuit on by that one before was able to run. The office didn't work. But let me more pressure on that night in Chicago is they're similar pressure No applied to Sean in vain because he's big Stanford as he's not because I'm saying there should be no discussions about inseparable. Don't know That's what I intend to do about that. But anything about your job if you didn't show up today, then But master will be pleased. I think they're even gonna get side on signing during that four years special. Anybody that the people I was hardly shocking decision to give him medicine in the front office Didn't do that. With that. I got approval and Charlie Baby, the only thing that would do it so it will be pretty good at making kind of put put the ownership of gearbox, but he's very much involved in keeping him around on extension now, unfortunately, suffered obviously falls on the day. I think a lot of trouble last season and so that really is all on him. Do to make it work because looking at the ranch, just mystery superstar fix everything all to get Stafford. So now they had to build on the guy. He said that he'd come through what we're going to court backs you traded Brennan cooks, you know Todd Gurley essentially different exhibits alcoholic early, so now is located This gifted changes to this office to get going again looking one of your dog problem or what is that? Some of the others just isn't quite the juggernaut we thought was the Bill Belichick stopped in suitable mediums reporter Lindsay theory.

"Jon Gruden the stealing money Four wins and season 17 wins last year. They can't do better than 18 8 this year because of that ridiculous coaching decision at the end of the game Saturday night against the Dolphins, and it was amazing because I was watching all the highlight shows, either. Everybody who works now on TV is in bed with the league. Or they just had Ryan Fitzpatrick mania and Fitz was brilliant, making that throw as he was getting nearly decapitated. But none of that should have happened because Gruden should have scored the touchdown. I understand He had no confidence in his defense, and he wanted to milk as much clock as possible. But once just, Jacobs did the right thing. The anti Todd Gurley, he fell down the one he stayed out of the end zone, then they should have scored the touchdown with about two minutes ago. Because if you score the touchdown off field goal can't beat you. The group is the smartest guy in the NFL. Just ask him. And what are you getting for? $100 million in Jon Gruden. You're getting a coach who's now 63 80 in the nine seasons since he won that Super Bowl with Tony Dungy's players. He's gone to the postseason twice. He hasn't won a single playoff game.

"Barrel recent Sports Radio and 94 Wi PE and Philadelphia off phenomenal game in the loss. Arizona last week. Jason Horowitz, Sports Illustrated senior Fancy analyst Michael Fabbiano. Happy to have you back with us here Week? 16. Now Jalen hurts might not have gotten you to your fantasy championship. But now you've got him on your bed. You might want to think about it. He was QB one in week 15 you trusting him enough against the Cowboys that you'd think about sitting the guy who got you here to play hurts and said, as we look at starting quarterback, Yeah, I absolutely would hurts Is my QB seven this week? If I've got Jalen hurts, and Russell Wilson I'm playing Jalen hurts against the Dallas Cowboys, who have allowed six quarterbacks to score 22 plus fantasy points this season. Baker Mayfield not only a good DFS bargain, but also a good start and redraft against the Jets. They've a lot 30 touchdowns and the third most fantasy points, two quarterbacks. I also like Justin Herbert against the Broncos. And Ryan Tannehill against the Packers. That should be a high scoring game right now. DK Sports book has the over under at 55 a half It's the highest total of the entire weekend. So Ryan Tannehill, who helped a lot of fantasy managers get to the championship with a monster performance last week. I still think he is going to be dishing out those Christmas goodies so Keep Tannehill in your lineup. Well, any helped a J. Brown get to a Pro Bowl and Corey Davis just short of a career high in terms of catches this year as well What quarterbacks you sitting here in week 16. Cam Newton is no longer playable. And of course, we're talking about traditional leagues where you only start one quarterback. The bills have held three of their last four opposing quarterbacks, the fewer than 16 fantasy points. I mentioned that Ryan. If you're in a multi quarterback league, I can play him. But he has failed to score more than 18 fantasy points and four of his six road games this year. Jared Goff is the Grinch. I will not trust him. Unless you're in a two Q B League. He needs to be on the sidelines. If you can't put up numbers against Seattle and the Jets, you're gonna be on the waiver wire in my league. And then Philip Rivers, who's not had a great feeling, but a decent floor lately, I'd fade him against the Steelers. This is defense. That's allowed 10 touchdown passes and fewer than 15 fantasy points per game two quarterbacks at Heinz Field this year. Let's go to the running back start of sitting here week 16. There's a lot of David Montgomery last week for the Bears against the Vikings. You expect that again? I mean, he's basically chalk right now. The Jaguars have allowed 16 touchdowns and third most points to running backs, so Montgomery needs to stay in your lineup. I like Mile Sanders this week had a bit of a stake. Her last week wasn't a great game. But the Cowboys have allowed the second most rushing yards to running backs. I think He puts up a very solid stat line. JK Dobbins is looking more and more like a feature back in Baltimore. The Giants have allowed 13 touchdowns and the night most points to enemy running back. So get Dobbins in your lineup, and we talked about Levy in Bella's DFS play. I also like him as an RV to flex this week against Atlanta with the rookie Clyde at original Air out of action. Libyan Bill should see a lot of work this weekend. All right. How about your city? I'm running backs. You're not a fan of the Steelers running back situation this week. Even though you think they're gonna be salty off the loss of the Bangles, they have not been able to successfully run the ball. Let's put it that way. Benesch now was pretty good last week against the Cincinnati Bangles, but that's been about it for the last month. Whether it's James Connor or Benny Smell, I'm avoiding both of them. The Colts defense is very good against the run, especially with the forced Buckner and Darius Letter in the middle of that defense, so I would fade. Pittsburgh's running backs. Mike Davis is probably a player you have to start. But he's a flex for me this week against Washington. They've allowed the third fuse fantasy points to running backs this season, when Goldman had like a five or six weeks stretch where he was an RB two. He was very good last week saw just 22 a half percent of the touches for the Giants and the Ravens are tough against running backs on their home field. And then Todd Gurley. Not only is Todd Gurley a sit him he is a cutem and I feel bad because it's the holiday season, But Todd Gurley has really become the third back in Atlanta. Ito Smith is the back that you want to start in Atlanta, and I don't think you want to start Ito Smith unless you're absolutely desperate. But Todd Gurley at this point isn't even Rasta rubble. He's a big name. The production simply isn't there anymore. Good news is for most of you don't.

NFC West: Who will unseat the 49ers?
"So glad to be joined by Candace Silva of the rams wire as we go around the NFC west try to figure out who's going to unseat the forty Niners if they can be unseeded at the top of the division cam covers the the rams the rams who apparently are the hot bat right now to win the Superbowl at thirty to one what the hell's going on their camp yeah apparently they were the most popular Super Bowl bet of the last I think there's some were the bachelor come in anywhere on the rams won the Superbowl which is surprising because they've done nothing in the past okay two months to really bolster their claim as a Super Bowl contender in it's been a rough offseason for them so they got a bounce back in to see them as a Super Bowl favorite or not people will favor but to see so many people jumping on the bandwagon for them to win the Superbowl surprising I mean obviously they were just in the Super Bowl now might about a decade ago by our current time frame standards but it was two seasons ago and they still have the same quarterback they still have the same head coach where has it gone wrong we know what happened last year it in fact but if if people are buying in why would you say don't hi this is biggest issue right now I was really surprised that they essentially ignored the the office of identity try to remake it or bring in much talent really on the opposite line this offseason they refinance or what works best it brought back Austin blight who could play guard and center I'm so really they're sticking with the same group that they had last year there's a lot of competition really the only position that sat on the opposite wanted at left tackle with what danger what work right but the other four spots where they're gonna be competitions with Bobby Evans and rob Stein at right tackle Austin Blake and Bryan Alexander in the guard position is kind of just a mishmash of players who are relatively unproven at the NFL level so I would say that's the biggest issue switching Todd Gurley out for can makers they hope is going to be an upgrade at least hopefully in the in the explosiveness department because we do the regular Todd Gurley last season and he kind of seems like he's past his prime with the old me injury in right usage so they hope that with the improved often combined with these guys developing the younger guys and then a a better run game they're going to hopefully get back to their roots from the twenty seventeen twenty seventeen to twenty eighteen season that also supplying plan doesn't seem like a very good one considering that they're in a division with the forty Niners who I don't think I'm being a Homer here by saying that they have a pretty darn good defense of line like that that might not be a good match up for them yeah that's one of the best defensive line principality and you're gonna have it you're gonna have such a us a big mismatch every time that these teams square off because the defense of life for forty third San Francisco so good you got Nick Bosa all the guys on the interior Erik Armstead so there's gonna be tough match ups all across the front when these teams square off twice a year and you're not gonna want to right now in blocking these guys or Bobby Evans are often blight it's it's gonna be a tough match up for all these guys what's M. brings us to the cornerback what what went down with Jared Goff I mean I don't know what it was it all just smoke and mirrors in that Super Bowl season was he figured out I mean there there's been plenty of arguments I've seen a lot of smart people say listen as soon as Matt Patricia showed how to basically not bite on the play action it was game over for the rams they still made the Super Bowl but last year was not great is there any realistic expectation around the rams that they can make it jump now with you know maybe acres and there is the full time running back yeah I I wouldn't say your golf was just smoke and mirrors in twenty eighteen I thought he was a legitimate MVP candidates for most that season and then they kind of have that by the crazy Monday Night Football game against the chiefs and ever since then he's just more grass than not been the same player it was it was he was really terrible on play action last season which was a surprise but again that goes back to the office of line you just didn't have time to to get to a second read he didn't have time to to turn his back to the defense on these armies clashing passes so that a big impact but he's a player who I know they gave them a hundred thirty four million dollars but at this point in his career he doesn't seem like someone who's going to really master the issues of the rest of the offense it's not can overcome terrible off in one place so for him in the rams to really bounce back it's going to take an improvement on the offensive line golf getting back to how he was playing in twenty eighteen and then that running game coming alive and that seems like a lot of that on because it's it's everything coming together as a cohesive unit but I mean with the talent that they do have they still look really good receivers with concocting Robert wood acres and Henderson at running back our promising and golf if he if he lives up to his contracting really pleased the way the FHS quarterback showed the ram should bounce back nicely I like Henderson he came out of Memphis right yep yep he he really was under utilized last year yeah they were kind of well I wouldn't say stubborn sticking with elderly but he just didn't get many opportunities but when he did when he did get some chances he showed his show computer production yeah if you could once against the forty Niners last season to worry bounced off a few tackles and I mean he he's a smaller guy he runs hard and he he he also I'm interested to see how they utilize them with Cammy Kerr's

Jackson for Lamar starting you know tight on that team right now marketers you said right Hayden Hurst also dealt with some injuries and stuff there too that's okay in perfect sample size and when you have a guy come on like marquetry who could predict that the way that offense ended up of what he was the Mackey award winner a what he was coming home with one truck will no no Jake Matthews yes I think so I think so I think so do not I meet yeah yeah I mean yes he's been there he's been there is a second contract I also wrote a like doesn't miss a lot of games he's he's dependable yeah I think that's what it our printer are probably not I mean he's he's been a guy that's been in the league for nine years now dependable guy but we're talking about first round right you know I mean when you're twenty four we'll talk about for sure we're talking about top ten picks like a lot yeah yeah yeah I I'd probably lean toward no on that as well yeah yeah Alex Mack yeah absolutely yeah yeah and then the other than what we remember and I think Lidstrom would be headed in that direction yeah kill the guy who's more reach last year get killed the one I have questions about obviously we know the health concerns that existed before the draft earning a hard issue that he had had to deal with early in this time oxygen so there's a lot to hash out with those two but just I mean blows off the page when you just read that number the every single hundred dinners with that crew yeah what eleven Ryan still got its still on that ride to reach for the paycheck first but everyone else has to at least go for their wallets and act like there's also a common I do with you know with my dad so you got rid you got Ridley help you got got this R.

The Running Back's Struggle
"Josh last time we had ESPN. It was to talk about fullbacks today. We're talking about running backs in our way through the backfield man just like Aaron Donald Josh firms. Meyer writes about football for five thirty eight Josh late last week. The Rams announced in a shocking move that they were releasing running back. Todd Gurley. This was a remarkable turn of events Given that girlie one offensive player of the year in twenty seven teen thoroughly. He was discussed by some people as an MVP candidate in two thousand eighteen on route to the Super Bowl led the league in rushing touchdowns that year. The ten the five untouched. To the end zone touchdown todd Gurley and on top of that. He's only twenty five years old. What happened my goodness twenty five year? Old running backs are already aging out. The first thing that happened to him was he has arthritic me. So at the end of the two thousand eighteen season he had to be replaced and spelled by Anderson Mentally played a little bit in the Super Bowl but he was just entirely ineffective. Fortunately that ineffectiveness carried over into the twenty nine thousand nine season and inbetween. He was given an extension that made him one of the highest. Pay running backs in the league. So this season couple that knee with his expense the caps situation in a loss Angeles and he just became a casualty and I think he is kind of an exemplar for everything. That's going on with running backs in the NFL. It's this idea of short and careers injury proneness and loss of effectiveness and therefore being cut or getting lower pay on the day that he was released. Espn stats and Info. Put out an number that I found fascinating in two thousand fifteen year. That Gurley was drafted. Twenty two backs were drafted. Not a single one of them. Josh is still on the team that selected them. What do you make of that goes to this idea of running backs? Having really short shelf life season for running back usually occur in one of their first two seasons at least in terms of productivity in terms of touches. You wear them down so quickly in this league. Though it's one of the toughest position on on the body and so I think the League as we've seen so far this year they still are kind of have a predilection overpay for the very good running backs are the ones that just had a good season but on by and large I think across the league. You're seeing people being really risk averse and moving on from running backs after a couple of seasons. When did you notice that that some teams not all and we'll get to some teams that have continued to pay running backs winded some teams for start to realize that they had been overvaluing the position and wanted to invest elsewhere. It's hard to trace it back specifically to a particular team but I know that People in twitter sphere and analytics the NFL analytics of talked about the replace ability of the running back position for quite a few years. The Philadelphia Eagles were one of the first on board to kind of spend money at the position but spread that money out over multiple players to kind of make the injury risks inherent in the position kind of spread across multiple sets of legs. The Baltimore Ravens are also one of the ones that the forefront of really just paying the absolute minimum that they have to at that position and actually getting pretty good production out of you mentioned that the analytics community was sort of early on this trend. What did they find? What did the data tell us about running backs really two things? Were most important about running the football. The results of run plays are primarily determined by run walking and defenders in the box. The defense and not who's carrying the ball because of that the finding is the inferences. They're running backs are interchangeable and investing a lot of resources whether it's the draft or whether it's free agency just doesn't make a lot of sense is also can be pinned on the changing nature of football itself. By and large. The data tells us that passing more passing. Early is more efficient right absolutely absolutely. I mean it's not even close in terms of the average value of a planet passing versus running on early downs. Then you still have to get into this idea. Of How much does it matter to the mentality of the team? How much does it matter to keep the defense on their toes? How much do you have to do to keep them honest? And so there's no question about how much teams should passing as a percentage of plays but is probably a case. They should be passing more than now. So are there any situations in which running the football is more advantageous absolutely? I absolutely you need to be able to run well at the goal line on Short yardage. If you have a running quarterback like Baltimore had last season definitely scrambling in design runs for quarterback are extremely efficient. Jackson will keep it on the read option expense at the thirty Lamar Jackson. Ted Pa Touch Lavar captain with the spin. This print Emma score. We saw what happened with Baltimore last year. They say hadn't run into that. Tennessee buds buzzsaw in the playoffs. They probably would have made it to the superbowl in my opinion. So there's definitely something to be said for the analytics and say stop running entirely and if you are going to do it do it with deception. Right off of play action. Get the other team guessing. About what your actual formation means and so they lose half a step in responding to what you're doing those are the kind of the things analytics pushes for not not whether or not you should be one hundred percent run or a hundred percent. You mentioned that Tennessee buzzsaw that beat the Baltimore. Ravens upset them. I think a lot of people point to that team to Derrick Henry and say see having a unique generational running back does matter. Look they upset. You Know New England in Baltimore. What would you say to that? I mean he got a twelve point. Five million franchise tag out of that performance. The back end of that year so I understand their point. They're looking at what just happened. They're looking at how he's being rewarded. No saying obviously matters but they beat another rushing team it the problem that I think the face the Ravens and we saw it with Kansas City. And how they didn't share. This same problem was that if you're built around the run whether it's by the quarterback or running it up the middle an wide zone like ravens did last season if you fall behind against a team that is also a ground and pound team in trying to control the clock and control the pace and you put yourself in a position where you have to come back. And you're not used to doing it or you don't have a quarterback quarterback that perhaps his is known for that type of play. You get what happened in in in Baltimore that night Jackson under pressure always lose ball stemming interception Jedi for the titans come up with another turnover hennessy. Titans are shocking the ravens whereas with the city chiefs they fell behind early three straight times but ended up winning the Super Bowl because they have a pass attack higher variants. You could make up ground easier with the passing game that you can with the run. When everything's working great rushing is the first thing you should try. And if you're good at it you should do it as long as you can but when it fails it fails pretty spectacularly and you need to be able to pass and in fact at the NFL level we ever parody is so prevalent that you really should just start out passing at that point because everyone's trying to run and everyone's trying to stop the run so the chiefs are sort of the analytics darling in this scenario because you know they passed their way to the Super Bowl. Josh they also have Patrick Mahomes right. So if you're a team with an average quarterback do you still think it's better to take a pass first approach in every NFL GAME? Even with a mediocre quarterback we find that they are better and teams are better and more efficient passing the ball and in sometimes. It's even more apparent when you have kind of an average or slightly above average quarterback because the defense and the defensive coordinator is almost sure you're going to not rely on them right. They're gonNA say well he's kind of crap you know. They're probably going to run out us all day long. And try and be safe with the ball so to the extent that you can put a mediocre quarterback in good positions like. Perhaps Tennessee did last year. Then you can take quarterback that had been floundering for years like Ryan Tannehill in. Turn him in to one of the best quarterbacks in the league the number one running back by the end of the season a guy that some people thought could have been the super bowl. Mvp was undrafted Damian Williams who is set to make just over a couple million dollars next year. How much does finance or the market factor in to know what we think about running backs today? I think you know if you're a casual fan. And you see everyone else. Basically on the team. Except for the punter and kicker getting more than on average than these running backs. I think it's beginning to percolate that. They're probably not the most important piece on the offense anymore. Things about analytics. Is that unlike baseball? Where like things got more boring? When analytics became involved when analytics can evolved in Football. Become more exciting. We want more passing. We want to go for it on fourth down. We want to know more so I one of the good things about all of this is that you see more aggressive more exciting football when it's played in the way that evidence seems to suggest it should
