Ron Rivera: Don't bet against Cam with Patriots
"Washington coach Ron Rivera was asked in an interview on six seventy, the score in Chicago about his thoughts on the Patriots Signing Cam Newton his quarterback and Carolina for nine seasons, Rivera said quote. He's headed in the right direction. I mean he's probably about as healthy as it gets from what I've seen on video. I think he's ready to bust out. said that he believes the coronavirus pandemic, which prevented teams from conducting in-person workouts was the main reason. More teams didn't try to sign him. He also pointed to his own quarterback second-year player Twain Haskins as the reason. Washington didn't try to sign Newton as a backup. Don't bet against them. Rivera said I really wouldn't.

"And he's throwing the ball I think really accurately and he is athletic. But I also think like Ryan Finley and Cincinnati hit the wall like a key. Just couldn't handle it now allen down in Carolina came back with a really big game. This past did a great defense. Yeah and you know he did it on the road in New Orleans and everybody ready now. Okay Cowan maybe. He has a little bit of that. What you need to have a couple of bad games and then come back and play good? I mean Sam Darnold has it. You could see it right. Yeah of course because I mean he was in I mean the tank. He was an as deep as you can go. Yep and they just kept throwing them out there. There was no alternative. You are playing some and you're playing through it. And he played through it to his credit. So that's that that that is an important part of the makeup of quarterback and I like to think that Daniel Jones has that too. I just I don't want Daniel Jones to half the learn another offense again next year. I want him to have at least another year of this offense. This Sam Darnold just went through exactly that right. What socks yeah? I guess but the same time. Todd Bowles is in the guy then. Todd Bowles isn't the guy I'd rather switch the offense and get it over with RIPA bandaid off as opposed to sticking with a coach. I don't think it's going to be a winner. If that's the way the giants feel about it. So and if they end up going to fourteen and end the season a twelve game losing streak there will not go to and fourteen I. I don't know how you bring the guy back. They're not gonna be able to fourteen. I Y you so confident about that. Well because the dolphins and the redskins on their schedule so the dolphins are better homes. Here they better not lose to those who teams. That's essentially what it comes down to go to Washington. Yeah the lose one of those. They'll lose one in Twain. Haskins taking selfies Assad line before the game's over. Yeah but as the because Zi one you see Dwayne Haskins Buddy said you know it shows a lot that Twain Haskins cares about the fans..

on our Wester hotline by John Murphy and his second brought to you by MT bank the official bank of the Buffalo Bills good morning Mr Murphy happy football Friday to use are you hold up okay under the crazy wins yeah I guess so no power at home but the others that were good all right well you know listen to the radio he get the old battery operated transistor radio you don't have one of those and I don't okay actually I need one but they don't I got when I let it I'll let you borrow it so I was looking at your story lines for the week and I think this is one that a lot of fans are wondering about after the Philadelphia game let's start with the bills defense and can it bounced back the answer might be yes due in part to who they're playing on Sunday right yeah I agree well I think we lost we lost Marcia will get Murph back in just a moment defense is much better than okay we lost for Sekhemre if you're fine go ahead about the D. fellow yeah we hear you I'm good yeah yeah no I think it's that you're right it's Washington team that is going to touch on a couple of weeks right it's been a couple games out of touch down court of a question that you just referenced in who knows will be playing running back so yeah I think it's a great chance for the buffalo defense to bounce back I I think there was an aberration last week I think that that's going to be an out liar in the the body work the put up defensively this year but we'll see I I've pretty much I have a lot of confidence in that group I think there's a lot of good players and and really good scheme for the bills defensively this year and I don't think that'll happen again not this week well you kind of took my next question but I'll follow up anyway because I think you know the the the real I'll guess I'll say the run defense specifically Murph because it had a tough day last week and it and it had some issues against Miami and I'm wondering if you think this is something that's problematic I don't I I think they'll fix it I think that it's probably already fixed what do you do you get good players there you know you gotta get a pretty good defensive line and they're getting contributions from guys that maybe no one even thought of I'm thinking of Jordan Phillips in particular I think Matt Milano is is off to the best start of his career I I think there's a pretty good defense and you know I think teams will because our souls the strong against the pass teams will focus on the run this Washington team like the do that because they cannot throw the ball at all and they'll get their reps in the running game but I don't know if the I have the kind I don't think they're gonna get the the kind of yards at Philadelphia got last week for sure okay offense simply for the bills it's a very much an inconsistent unit now averaging about nineteen points a game what they need to do to finish off more drive to score more points to become a more consistent unit you know they've done a pretty good job and shut down the the turnovers which were problem they only have to over the last three games a one fumble and one interception so that's good that's pointed in the right direction I think you know penalties are still in it your preset penalties account for half of their penalties so far this year but mostly I think in the biggest thing they can do is is get better quarterback play I think they they you know looking at Georgetown saying okay eighteen starts now go to start number nineteen let's take the next step and that includes you know not turning the ball over and being more conscious of of protecting the ball and he has done that for the most part the last couple of weeks but also includes just you know having a feel for what's going on during the game and being able to read things down feel clearly in and spot open receivers and and make the right decisions and he still got some work to do in that department and I think they're they're probably coach in a very hard this week to get in there I was curious about that you got a nice birds you've got the all twenty two view from your from your spot excuse me in the broadcast booth do you see it is Josh maybe not seeing the whole field are there plays original receivers that are open plays that are out there that that for whatever reason he is not finding yeah and it's hard to do that during the game live during the day calling the play by play could you have to watch the ball but I'll go back and watch video on all twenty two video when you see that I think you'll see that with with most quarterbacks by the way they don't they can't see everything but it's not just open receivers it sort of just a feel for you know where this this ball should go or or what where should I put this fall in and who is the the primary target here and I think it's it's sort of a a nuanced the approach to the game that that can only come through experience you know and and with eighteen NFL starts I think eighteen starts from now you'll be I think a lot more better at it than he is right now do you think in terms of the passing offense you know Tyler Kroft comes out at a couple catches that's with Murph we've been talking about how okay brown is your top guys having a good season Beasley is right there behind him although I thought his number to be a little bit better but after those two guys it's it's really wide open who do they need a consistent third threat and if they do who do you think would be your best option at that point after brown and Beasley yeah I mean there a lot of candidates are there and even you know going into the trade deadline a few days ago you started looking around the league and say well that guy can help this off answer that guy could get opener that got it looked at I think they need a mall you know they need Devin single there to be a factor in the in the in the as a pass receiver they need Dawson knocks to be a factor in in the passing game they need of you know maybe Robert foster who had to go a couple of throws his way last Sunday they need him to to maybe emerges a factor they need everybody they can get because the passing offense is really struggling and I think you know there's there's no you know Jerry rice's walking through that door if you know him you know they need a little bit from everybody in order to get the passing offense back where they need it you mentioned single Terry what do you got it yeah I got any ideas so I'm sure you and Steve talked about it this week no Kerry's in the first half last week not a tone the touches you have any ideas as to what's going on there no I mean they're playing a lot ready and a land which is many snaps and Frank gore I think it's it's just the you know what it's part of it is the game itself in other games played out and trying to come from behind against Philadelphia but yeah they can go that way I think they can given the ball more I think goods they they think you made a concerted effort when he came back from the hamstring to take it easy and not over work him but that's now two or three weeks ago right it's time for him to to become the guy that they're looking for in and the opportunity is there you can't you know Frank gore is not going to handle it if it's twenty carries a game and they already started to doubt him down in terms of snaps in Kerry's last week so yeah I think single Terry time is right now to emerge he's another one like that has to he has to contribute they have I think they have the pieces in place another got to just settle on whose get and where they are they going to get it to him but both passing and read and running the ball hi mark have a good call Sunday enjoy your weekend we'll talk about it next week okay thank you thanks John dumber for joining us on the western hotline and he.

"Podcast on ESPN radio. The ESPN draft analyst Louis Riddick. Now. You bring up the patriots. And I think one of the most hotly debated talked about drafts from last week was the New York Giants before you give me your take before you ask you about their draft. I wanna share a couple of things. I know the Dave Gettleman said that there were two teams he knows for a fact we're going to take the first round pick today took dangle Jones. And again, I don't know why that's relevant to the whole conversation. You should be taking a guy where you want. What you believe in? And in my mind, I can't find two teams because I think he's referring as most people would agree to the Denver Broncos in the Washington Redskins. The Washington Redskins were Dwayne Haskins team all along. And in fact, we had doing Haskins on this podcast last week, and my producer. Josh macrey, testified to this at the end of the podcast. When we're off camera talking or off line at said, hey, get ready. You're going to Washington. Josh did I not say that to him? You did. And we'll see he said we'll see the washer Redskins wanted twain Haskins. The Denver Broncos. We're not taking Daniel Jones in the first round. That was not the guy. They wanted at one point in time. Daniel Jones, intrigued them, and I can tell you this for curious about him. And then they shifted to go to drew lock. Drew lock was going to be the quarterback, and they didn't want to do that in the first round. And so it worked out as well as Denver could have. So now could Cincinnati at eleven been the sleeper team that get a nose for facts, taken lock could Carolina. Sure anything's possible. But I firmly believe that Daniel Jones would have been on the clock for the New York Giants at number seventeen. I believe actually that dangle Jones might have been on the clock for the New York Giants when they traded back. Up into the first round to go. Get de'andre Baker at ten point in time. I think that he would have been there at that spot. De'andre Baker number thirty. So I guess here's my question to you low for the giants general manager job. And I don't know if you thought about this. But I have. How different would their course of history over the last two years been had you been the GM. Yeah. Questions to answer. But in not a tough question. But when I don't know if I but let me let me put it this way. Let's put it this way. All the way back to the beginning. All right. I was one of the people who supported the fact that what they saw in saquon Barkley was ballot legitimate. Okay. And he was from a pure value standpoint. It's not the best player in the draft. Damn close to being best player drafts. Picking a number two. I didn't have a problem. I understand philosophically what they were trying to do. And I knew I knew how or should felt about him. I knew how that place about him. I knew how the leaks all about. I knew how people thought about sake. And I understood okay, if we take him. And we do that. He lied. Manny someone who need to just go up the team around him. Ghetto del healthy keep him. Happy offense align escort way. Good luck defense. We'll be able to continue to build this football team. But we're gonna have to dress quarterback at some point in time. And I I was okay with that. I was okay with that. Oh, L with someone who I thought. Okay. The relationship between him and the office in the coaching staff is going to be critical. So we critical that you lost her that that you connect with him that you understand him. He understands you whoever the head coach was going to because they never know what I when I interviewed there, you know, the head person. So like yet, obviously. So whoever that guy was going to be to make sure that was one of eight number one priority. Building a relationship with him. Because I know how this tomorrow expressed to me like. He wanted del wanted to be happy. He went out to the giant. He just wanted to find a way in order to have that relationship with. So I was one hundred percent behind that. Look. That's Lutely, right. That that's going to be critical. So what I have to say cord? Yeah, I understood it. I wouldn't have problem with it. I wanted to build up the line just like they tried to. Yeah. I would have what I wanted to sign. Odell till ten extension keeping in New York. Yeah. So I understood all of those types of things now heading into two thousand nineteen. What I wanted to keep winning Collins. Absolutely. I've sent his numbers times on our shows. You single positions. The guys who are facing players talk to the rest of the team guys who you know, when you're in the huddle when you're out of practice guys were getting calls from from the sideline or rather in the headset. Talking to team safety little linebacker quarterback center. I those guys calls guy I wanted to keep I wouldn't want to let him get out of there. I didn't I didn't necessarily like that. As far as quarterback is concerned. Yeah. I would have made it a priority to try and draft a quarterback. I just wouldn't have drafted this one. We'll be back with more.

"The UK and enjoying the program on one of the various Sky Sports channels, Chris before we get down to business. I have an important update. Okay. To deal with old business. Okay. We're gonna we're gonna read the minutes and go over the business. We can relax now twain Haskins has received official permission from someone who had no basis to give him permission to wear number seven in Washington. Joe thighs man has decided apparently he doesn't need to have his ring or anything else kissed by Duane Haskins. Thighs men has decided to let Haskins wear number seven. So at least we can resolve that and move forward knowing that has skins gets to wear his number of choice, and Joe is apparently placated. Well, you you sound a little snarky about that. That sounds like gay copy paste. I don't know you tell me, I just I'm just reporting the news. Okay. I don't know. I know that devilish little twinkle in your eye when I see, and I think I just saw it. Well, hey, either way I think Dwayne Haskins went about it the right way as far as respecting somebody that. Hey, listen, you know, say what you want about jobs is and tell me another Washington Redskins quarterback who's been to two Super Bowls. He did win one, of course. And he had a great career, and yeah, okay. I I was wrong when we talked about this with Peter on what was that Tuesday? I thought that the number was actually retired. What is just as name that's in the ring of honor? And they haven't given out, you know, the number for anybody to have. So I understand what you're saying. But obviously, it does mean something or is associated with Joe ties into where the Redskins having given it to anybody else. So he does have some say on the matter Mr. snarky on a Thursday morning Florio. They did speak by phone Wayne Haskins, Joe thighs, but to the extent there was any ring kissing. It would have been. Done figuratively since they didn't actually get together and hash things out. And and Joep Joe thighs men didn't get to be even more relevant at this point than he would like to be. And that's why I'm being a little bit snarky. I just feel like this is a play by Joe to inject himself into a story that otherwise does not involve him. All right on the more important things. What you need to know this hour begins in Kansas City, where we we still don't know what's going to happen with Tyree. Kill there's been multiple reports. Suggesting the NFL is going to put them on the Commissioner exempt list. One of the NFL media reporter said yesterday that the NFL likely won't do anything this week because there really isn't any need to do anything because the chiefs don't have tyreek hill off season workouts. I spoke to Travis Kelsey yesterday about tyreek kill he initially didn't want to say anything, Chris. But eventually, I just I I asked him look do you guys just have a feeling in the locker room that this guy may never be back. Here's what Travis Kelsey had to say. I think it's still up in there. It's just everything's just kind of. I don't know. Nobody really knows exactly what's going on. So. Yeah. And and inside the locker room outside the locker room. Nobody does know what's going on. There's this just overall uncertainty. It's not a positive vibe. And it feels like it's heading in a certain direction. But for now the chiefs not doing any further and the NFL apparently not going to do anything further. It's just amazing Chris where a week removed from that audio coming out and the chiefs sending tyreek hill away and the NFL hasn't even acknowledged the situation that to me is a little bit bizarre. Because at some point you expect the league to to express the same kind of concern that the chiefs have expressed on at least three different occasions. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, you would or at least I would like to see that. I think that's jersey in two you'd like to see it as well. I mean, that's the NFL. It's the number one sport in our country. They try to hold themselves to a different standard, or at least they say so at times, but we've seen this, you know, with a view incidents here in recent history to where the NFL has kinda gone off the radar and made no comments about certain. Situations to where I don't understand what the thinking is. I guess they feel like they're not going to interject and anything that's still a legal proceeding. Now that the investigation was back opened since the audio was released that we heard some of the damning things that tyreek hill said that. We're absolutely disgusting. So I guess they look at it that way and go, okay. He's not part of the chiefs organization right now. Anyways, let's continue to gather information and see where it goes from here. But yeah, I just I I am like you. I'm a little surprised something hasn't been said. This is a pretty significant football player on one of the best teams in football. And of course, was a household name last year because of the tyreek hill Patrick homes come combination. And I don't wanna be overly cynical about this. And I want to be sensitive, the broader circumstances. But to the extent that the personal conduct policy and everything associated with it is driven by PR concerns. I think a basic PR approach here would be look why do we want to shine a spotlight on some? Something that is negative right now. Right. If we can get by with saying nothing doing nothing. There's no reason to say anything there's no reason to do anything. Let's just do nothing. I don't know that that's the right approach from the standpoint of what is the right thing to do. But from a PR standpoint, it's the smart thing to do because you don't have a new cycle, featuring the NFL issuing this strong statement of condemnation of tyreek kill drawing that story back out into the open one story that hasn't been drawn out into the open that we didn't even realize what's going on Kansas City relates to defensive lineman. Chris Jones, he's been skipping the voluntary offseason program. Now, just because we mentioned that doesn't mean that we think he should be there. It's newsworthy in his case because the guys trying to get a new contract one way to get your new contract withhold services. And there's no downside withholding your services when you are talking about the voluntary offseason program. So he's entering the final year of his contract is due to make one point two million in base salary and count one point three. Million against the cap. He has not been attending. He wants that contract. And Chris he's one of the guys that I think they've made a priority and look Frank Clark gets five years one hundred five million. He's never taken a snap. Played it down with the Kansas City Chiefs guy who's been there. Getting it done is gonna wanna get paid guy. That's been they're getting done guy. That's been there that was third in the NFL. And sax last year. That's what people I don't know. Everybody realizes that 'cause d Ford and Justin Houston got so much of the, you know attention as far as pass rushers but the best player on the Kansas City. Chiefs defense last year. No question about it is Chris Jones big number ninety five. And I understand I if I were him I would not be showing up either. Because he, you know, he he last year proved that he is in the cream of the crop as far as interior defense align and other than Aaron Donald he's the best interior defense align pass rusher in football. I mean, it goes Aaron Donald one Chris Jones to if you're going to ask. Ask me. Hey, we need some guys who can beat guards and centers up the middle of push the pocket. Create chaos. I would go. Wow. Donald one Jones's to. He's that special football player. And yeah, I understand Mike. I mean, hey, listen you look at the current market. I got it right here in front of me. Aaron Donald the courses the king at twenty two million Fletcher Cox's second at seventeen million. Then you get an Gino aci- and Cohen short at sixteen point three sixteen point one Gerald McCoy at fifteen point eight. Hey, I'm totally comfortable. Putting Chris Jones in the class of those players right there. He is in the Gino Atkins. Cohen short Gerald McCoy Grady, Jared who just got franchised by the Atlanta Falcons. So they're going to have to find a way to pony up and give this guy some cash I remember early in his career. He's a guy who would flash for short periods of time, maybe disappear for a while. But he set the NFL record last year for consecutive games with a sack, and when you are rushing from the interior position that is not. Easy to do. And he is going to want to get paid. You mentioned Justin Houston d for another both gone. But you throw them in with Christian. How in the world is the defense so bad last year who who's playing in the secondary. Yeah. If you're if you're defensive line is that good, but your defense can't slow anybody down. Yeah. No. I know Mike think about AFC championship game is awesome. As Brady and gronk and Eshelman word down the clutch. Think about it. I mean, it was you know, wide open ten yards in front of Brady completion. It was gronkowski wide open on a slant completion version, and then it was adamant again down the middle wide open. So there's been issues with Kansas City. This is why they fired about Bob Sutton and went into Steve Spagnolo because. Yeah, the pass rush was just even though it was dangerous. There wasn't enough depth behind it. And at times. Yeah. They just run out of steam because of that. And then when you only have to take one Pat of the ball and throw it open guy. It's hard to get to the quarterback that way. Okay. We're going to slow down to Atlanta now where falcons receiver Julio Jones still looking for a new contract. He said he doesn't need to be the highest paid receive in game. But. Okay. He's not the one who's negotiating the deal his agents are and I think there is an effort to make him the highest paid receiver in the game. Thomas Dmitrov, speaking about the situation via the Atlanta Journal constitution says he's not concerned about the situation. But for the fact that it's unbelievable where the numbers are going in the reality of it is that you have to be very mindful of the market and the market is dictating where Julio Jones will be and we know that. And I understand it's unbelievable where the numbers are going, but it's all driven by the ongoing increase in the salary cap. When the cap goes up over ten million dollars every year that money trickles down to the players and the best players get more money than they otherwise would have gotten and we're on the brink of a possible explosion in the salary cap with the new labor deal new TV deals and the ongoing spread of legalized gambling. There's going to be more money than ever available to pay players and the owners are getting theirs and the players need to get there. And we continue to never bat an eye at how much. Money. The owners are pocketing. But for some reason, we continue to get upset at the notion that a player is making a lot of money. I don't know that that ever goes away. But I'm never gonna stop pointing that out. Even if it's just one every even if it's just one person out there who hears it every time, I say, thanks. You know, what why do we get mad at these guys for getting paid the money's there? The owners are making. There's why do we begrudge these guys getting paid for the abilities? They have the sacrifices they they make and the risks. They take let's keep beating that drum Mike because you know, what I can't remember specifically last week on profootballtalk. There was an article again about somebody asking for more money. And I always go down to read the comments just to get a gauge of what fans feel by it. And you know, it was the same thing. You know, just oh how these guys never honor their contracts and all that stuff, and my, you know, my head wants to pop off when I read that stuff again because it just never hear the conversation when it's vice versa and a team cuts a player asked them to restructure his contract. Because they don't feel like he's playing up to par to that contract. So that drives me crazy. I know you and me let's continue to do that this Julio Jones thing though, going to be interesting to see where it goes, you know, where what how are they going to pay them? What are they gonna do here as going to be a brand new contract or they're gonna give them a more sweetener where they give them a guaranteed money type of thing? But when you talk about he doesn't need to be paid like the top receivers of football. Well, he's going to be wanna to be paid like at least in that conversation. You know with Antonio Brown making sixteen seventy year and Mike Evans making sixteen year. He certainly going to want to be right there. He might not want to get to Dell's eighteen million years or say, but either way it's going to cost the Atlanta Falcons chunk of change here. Pay a guy that certainly in the combo for one of the best receivers in the game. And there's different ways to frame these contracts. The bottom line is he's got one year left on his current deal. He wants to rip it up. He wants a new contract, and he's going to want to be compensated. And this is his last chance because he's on the wrong side of thirty. It's amazing. It still feels like he's new to the NFL with these seasons role by. By and before you know, it you you have to start thinking how much more can I make before I'm no longer in a position to make elite NFL money. All right. One more quick before we take a break. Tomorrow is the annual deadline for exercising. The fifth year option on first round contracts from three years earlier twenty sixteen is the year. We're looking at now most of the players are having their fifth year option picked up this is the ultimate pass fail on whether or not you're regarded as a sufficiently good player players like Jack. This was a surprise top ten pick Jack conklin and the titans. They're not picking up his option for the offensive lineman shack loss and defensive line with bill's not picked up by apple who got traded from the giants to the saints in the states, still retain the right to exercise that option, and it I remember they were happy with ally..

"Now, I'm saying, okay. They should've taken Josh down. Yeah. Challenge should have been the guy. He should have been the guy that was going to be on the outside of that defense because that defense needs playmakers, and we had ten overall picks that they ended up using they traded some other pigs seven of those ten were defensive pick. So they obviously show you that they need defensive play makers by virtue of how many defensive players they took in the draft. But for me, it's about Josh Allen in this case because Josh Allen was right there for the taking, and I'm assuming and I do believe that Daniel Jones would have been there at seventeen if they want them. Yeah. But it's also hard to compare quarterbacks defensive ends. Right. I think that's why. And plus he's on the Redskins ask it's people are going to compare those two. There's no. Doubt about it. If they would have. So if Washington and fifteen would have taken Haskins, and then the giants taking Daniel Jones, then I would have just said, well, you know, the giants were passing on on Haskins. Anyway, so it didn't matter. But I don't know. This is just to me it's about Josh Allen more more so than twain Haskins. Yeah. Telling you that the the person that'll be compared to Daniel Jones. The least out of these three players is Josh Allen. And the other two are Dwayne Haskins and Sam darnold because people are going to compare apples to apples and quarterbacks that you could have had it's the most important position in sports. I agree. I agree. But I just think that if if Josh Allen goes out there and becomes rookie defensive rookie of the year and becomes a Pro Bowl player. Like Darius Leonard did last year for the colts giant fans are going to be livid. Because you know, he was supposedly the edge pass rusher that fell much like sweat fell. He felt a little bit for whatever reason at Oliver fell a little bit for whatever reason. So. Those three defensive players in my eyes that would be sweat. That would be that would be Alan. And that would be Oliver all have something. I probably think in their mind have something prove because at one point in time. I believe that they all bought it. They were going to be like top three picks. Yeah. Absolutely. All of boomer and geo on the fan CBS sports network. Just getting started. We've got Yankee field level tickets.

Oh my God. Wow. That makes me feel even better. Because now the Broncos didn't get Bush, and they didn't get that much. So. Look at the Bengals here at offer. Tackled. Cordy Glenn, Bobby hearten, Kent Perkins. So they they might go tackle. Then you signed heart though, for for these amount of money or no. Oh, yeah. I don't I don't I don't think the Bengals were were expecting to be here at eleven with really only calmer. Kyla Murray taken off of their list? Yeah. Tab twain Haskins staring them in the face. Yeah. Yeah. Heart heart was what three or sixteen million. What was they just signed him and his too stupid contract who three or twenty one million? Three or sixteen million. Either way either way. So we got the Broncos making questionable trades, and we have the raiders already taking questionable people and the chiefs first-round pick. It's a good night. Love love that Bush, though player that is a great. I would have given it to be honest. I would have given up that hall if I need a linebacker. I would've traded up that spots given session third.

"Defensive players will make up five of the top six picks in the NFL draft. So basically what we're saying we think is going to go one of the possibility of twain Haskins going six to the giants will that happen or warning quite I I think the giants are still I know there's the smoke blowing right now of the defensive player, which I think they may go, but I think they're gonna quarterback. I'm gonna shove this one. I think to quarterback over the top sick. I'm gonna shove this for that. But I don't I don't necessarily think it has to be the giants. I think someone is going find their way in there and make sure that court another quarterback is taken within those tops because I'll say again, I wouldn't take the number one. If I were the car, I am going to love it. And I think the story of the draft is gonna be the free fall of quarterback out of the top five. Okay. That tot take right there. I've been saying this for months, you can't say something for months BNB taking saying. Love shove WinCo. He's been radio news.

Seven-round 2019 NFL Mock Draft: Raiders surprise at No. 4, Lock goes before Haskins, Bears start on O-line
"Aradio mock draft special we are on pick number seventeen. Just a quick refresher. For those that are wondering how our top five maybe looked in our mock draft the cardinals going number one there with Hyler Murray. Nick Bosa goes to the Niners Jetsgo Quin Williams. The raiders selecting Oliver at four Josh Allen goes five at six. It was the giants their first pick of round number one going with twain Haskins. And so here they are on the clock at number seventeen in the pick is in. And this pick from the Cleveland Browns and Jake Aspen, you've been picking for the giants of can't get in touch there with Valentine's. So what are the giants day? I liked your picket six for Haskins. What are they doing at seventeen? After finally addressing the quarterback position with Wayne Haskins at number six hours. The giants will then take that pick that they got from Cleveland and flip it into a nother wide receiver to replace owed L Beckham junior. I have the giants taking decay Metcalf here. Okay. Obviously the name we are quite familiar with based on his incredible combine performance, and listen, this is a pick where you could also go defense from the giant perspective. There are some guys that are still out there on that defensive line that could make sense, but we have not had any skill position player go besides Hopkinson the tight end at number nine in our mock to the Buffalo Bills. So I think it's time we get another skill position player here. I think Metcalf is a need. He also very well might be the best player on the board at pick seventeen. And that's why I like the giants to take net calf here. Yeah. We've all seen the photos during his workouts. And you mentioned that the numbers at the combine. But just the photos that were circulating where do one of the most rip people you've ever seen in your life, perhaps certainly from an NFL draft prospect, there's positive negative people. You know, certainly the positive some people on the flip said, well, that's that's great. And all but what what are his hands? Like, what does this affect also his ability? But then we saw a run, but we saw at the combine and what he was able to do not just in the forty time. But even in some of the the cone drills and everything like that. So. I think that's a very likely pick. If in fact, he's there come Thursday night in Nashville, and I wonder, you know, as we see that. This was just our second skill position. I would be surprised not saying we're going to have five or six of them going to top seventeen. But I would be surprised. We don't have three go before. Or at least to go before we get to the giants on Thursday nights far skill positions wide receivers. But in most likely, we would see maybe one other wide receiver go. I mean, the next wide receiver on the board is probably a Hollywood Brown. Right. No question. And I agree with what you're saying. I think traits have a lot to do with that right quarterback start coming earlier than painted here. All of a sudden kind of moves up some of the scope position guys to be available for these teams. So I could absolutely see the scenario playing out where Metcalf in our Bach is going here at seventeen I wouldn't be surprised for team falls in love with him. And they move up to get him. Let's say in the top ten. Yeah. And if you're the giants, you might be willing to even wide receiver certainly need, you might be willing to trade back. In fact, if you feel like you can get a wide receiver. Let's say you like Hollywood Brown better. They said, okay. We'll we'll try back to twenty two. Maybe you're able to get Hollywood. Brown scenarios this Alex, the giants don't take Wayne Haskins at six and then they say, hey, maybe drew lock is our guy if he's still there and our Maki's not, but David Jones is still there in our Machi as a religious with duke's head coach who is Peyton Manning's quarterback coach David cut cliff. So not saying that they're gonna take Daniel Jones because we haven't taking Haskins Fultz if they decided to get cute. Maybe they like, you know, someone at six maybe they take an edge rusher that high pick seventeen also be in the market for quarterback. So that is the pick from New York. That means the Vikings at eighteen on the clock their first selection here and around one of our twenty nineteen mock draft in the pick for the Vikings is
NBA Draft 2019: Latest 1st-Round Order, Predictions
"And ladies and gentlemen, we have a new mock draft out Mel kiper Jr's three point. Oh is here with us. And we are looking forward to the draft. Mel will join us in just about an hour to talk about the new mock draft. But there have been some changes in the draft specifically one less quarterback. Now going in the first round then in mel's two point oh mock draft. So we have four in the two point oh mock draft with Daniel Jones from Duke rounding out of the last pick of the draft to the patriots in the first round of thirty two. There are only three quarterbacks now in the first round, according to mel's latest mock. And obviously a retirement might be a big reason why and the quarterbacks have changed as well. Right. As far as where they're they're going. Well, Cuyler he still has Tyler going number one derozan. Well in his last draft Cuyler going number thirteen to the dolphins. So now and this draft he hasn't going number one. He had. Dwayne Haskins going number six at a giant Kyle Murray. Going number thirteen to the to the dolphins. Drew lock going fifteen to the Redskins and Daniel Jones going thirty two to the patriots. So as you mentioned Daniel Jones now out of the first round, according to the latest mock draft by Mel kiper, just three quarterbacks Murray number one. The main says Dwayne Haskins at number six, and you start to hear reports that the giants may go defense was six and then was seventeen go quarterback. But right now twain Haskins at six and then drew lock sitting there at number thirteen for the dolphins. Does the only three quarterbacks in this latest first round. Yeah. Going to be very interesting because we know what the giants listen one thing. Dave Gettleman has made very clear he does not feel beholden to tell us his plan. And so I don't feel overly beholden to believe. A lot of what we're hearing coming out of the giants can't because if you've got a guy who's basic messages trust me, I got this. Well, then we understand he doesn't feel like he has to tell us the truth. So as we hear these things. Coming out. We also understand this time of year is about deception to an extent it's trying to manipulate the draft order trying to manipulate the opinions of certain players. So that you can try and put yourself in the best position to get the guys you ultimately want. So it makes it difficult to try and read the tea leaves it is although I have to say on cattlemans behalf. He said all of last spring saquon Barkley is a generational talent with the second overall pick. And that's where he went. Look, I think we all agreed. There has to be a quarterback in the giants future. Whether it's at six or seventeen trade now Cleveland, but it would not surprise me in the least if Dave Gettleman waited until the second or third round to take a quarterback this Dave Gettleman, he created that created, but he he made the term a more of a vernacular in the NFL draft hog molly's when he was the GM of the Carolina Panthers. He loves the big guys to hog mollies. And let's be honest. This draft is going to be decided outside of Kyla Murray. More than anything else about the big defensive lineman in this draft. The hog Molly is on the defensive side of the ball. So depending on your draft grades for your quarterbacks you could take one of those at six and then a quarterback at seventeen it all depends again on your on your draft great. If twain Haskins is highest on the board and draft grades. You don't pass that up. If you have a Dwayne Haskins drew lock. And whatever other quarterback equal in grades. You know, maybe use that seventeen pick baby can trade it up somehow to get one of those guys as I said, this always comes down to grades. Do. You have a choice amongst grades. Are you close enough in quarterbacks where if you don't get one you try and get the other? But we'll see we'll see, you know, one of the biggest changes in from the last two this for Mel was they had the patriots taken Daniel Jones a quarterback, and this one I serve Smith junior the tight end from Alabama going, and that would not be shocking at all you have really three out of the top tight end Hopkinson the kid from Iowa teammate, Noah Fant, and then Smith junior all three likely to go in the first round a three first round tight end to on the same team come on. And what would that tell you as we saw? The patriots jump into the first round and take a running back and Sony Michelle at the end of that. And now to see in the next year three tight ends going. We've talked about this. However, you want to split it. Last year were Quinton Nelson. Went in the top ten in the draft as an offensive guard. We saw roquan Smith going the top ten as a middle linebacker. The middle of the field is worthy. NFL is being built right now. And other teams are starting to catch up to what the patriots have done for years. The way that we've seen teams export that specific area and three tight ends in the first round would hammer that home not denying that. They are guys that are certainly probably more talented than usual tight end groups. We're used to seeing but it's also about value. It's why you see running back taking it to overall by the giants last year. I mean, the other thing is I think they're more interior linemen in this first round then quarterbacks right? Like, a not tackles guards and centers. There are more of those according to males latest mock than there are actual quarterbacks being taken which would be very unusual. So the top five in this new draft that Mel kiper put out is Kylie Murray. Number one of the cardinals Nick both the D N number two to the forty Niners. Number three. Josh Allen the outside backing backer pass rusher going to the jet number four Cornyn Williams. To the raiders and number five guy making a pretty big jump. Devon white going to Tampa Bay at five in the last mock draft he was number eleven to the Bengals now in mel's draft. He is sitting at number five number six twain Haskins seven Joon Taylor. The offense attack from Florida going to Jacksonville sweat, the D N going to the lions at eight Sean, Gary the D N going into the bills from Michigan and TJ Hopkinson. The tight end going to the Broncos at number ten. Here's here's what I wanted to talk to Mel about and one of the issues that I have laid on me big fella with with this draft comes, you know, some some point and one of them is there are few prospects in new first round projection who are making their debuts because of their combine performances. There are four guys who have jumped into mel's first round who weren't out there before again based on the combine combine performances. I don't understand that. I don't I don't understand that. If you wanna say. You looked at the combine to go back and look at tape of them. But to say, they're combine performance jumped them up that doesn't compute to me. Well, I think that's I think that's the assumption though, is because of their performance you went back and look and that. That's fair. That's why I want to ask them. How did this? Make you go back and study them more. Because if you're just basing things off the combine I got a real issue with that. Yeah. I I don't think you would do that or teams. But at the same time, you look at the positions of the majority of the players that would be involved in that. And I think this could be true for teams as well. It's interior offense. It is right. Three interior offensive linemen Terry McLaren the wide receiver, but when it comes to interior offensive lineman. You wanna talk about an area where the scouting grossly lags behind to actually great and overall draft. It's a difficult area for a lot of people to see and understand because you don't have the benefit of a lot of stats. You don't have the benefit of even the combine members necessarily always translating to production. So when those guys go and they paying and they flag in the model somewhere for what they do at the combine. And then you go back and spend some more time looking at a guy like Lindstrom who wasn't going to be a big name. He wasn't like, you know, Gary bradberry from North Carolina State won the Remington award this year. Like that guy was a stud Boston College was a middling. Okay. ACC team this year. So Lindstrom wasn't getting the credit. He deserved even being as good as he is. So you go back now, and even these NFL teams, maybe we're late to the party on some of these guys all of a sudden start giving them an extra. That's why I want to ask I just wanna make sure with Mel that because I'm just reading from the combine performance, and again, let's put a name. To those you mentioned McLaren the wide receiver who is one of the others. Chris Lynch reminder, you just mentioned from Boston College now. Number twenty one to Seattle Eric McCoy interior linemen going number twenty two to Baltimore. Right and the Garrett bradberry. The Senator from North Carolina State who is you mentioned one the Remington award is the best center in the country number thirty one to the LA Rams where they have an aging center, and John John Sullivan. And that was that was one of the things have been saying for the Rams the last couple of years that dynasties been built on the interior. If you land a guy like that good, Lord or you winning out it is. So we'll see how that plays out. Now, the one thing that I find interesting he he has drew lock the third quarterback Mel dozen his latest mock going thirteen in Miami. I'm telling you don't take out Denver at ten in Cincinnati of eleven in play for quarterbacks. I mean. Yeah. Denver made the play for Joe flacco. But John Elway has messed this up a couple of times with all due respect. I mean, that's just outside of getting Peyton Manning. He has not figured out the quarterback spot there at ten they might be in play for quarterback. And you have Andy Dalton with his situation with the Bengals and his contract situation. I, you know, I think that there's a really good chance that they could be in play with a quarterback there, by the way, by the way, Mel kiper Jr's mock draft not the biggest item related to the draft this week. That will have news for you guys. What more on that coming up later? This week

I got saquon and Beckham. Well, if you're a rookie quarterback having Beckham and everything that he brings chaos doesn't help a guy. That's not maybe doesn't handle it. Well that kind of chaos, so maybe it's a little bit better to have deployed saquon and golden Tate's a catch machine. I mean, he called me we talked about this the dude like catches everything has direction. So I kind of wanted him, but but the not at that price. Yeah. That's too. That's way, too. I thought maybe the Cowboys be interested. It's funny because I'm curious if the Cowboys may have been interested in and the giants have crap we can't let them have him. Let's go over pay him. That's more than likely what happened either that or the giants kept reading how everybody was completely upset with them for what they did. And they're like. We got we got the next best guy. Right. Because that's what the giants could be thinking in. This instance is like oh crap. Everybody really thinks that we're done. So let's let's do this same. We're smart. No. You're still dumb. You really overpaid for this guy. And just just so we're on the same page or maybe we're not say twain Haskins Kyla Murray. Josh rosen. Sam darnold still better than all three of those. Yes. The guy they could have had but didn't and took the running back the age of icing off Sam darnold. Okay. So you're asking the wrong guy. Kevin love Sam darnold. I mean, I love them. But I certainly take him with more upside and a better career than Cuyler twain Haskins and Josh Rosen. I will put a put a hamburger bet on Tyler's career. If you're cool with that. Now, I have to root against Cuyler. But yeah, I I feel like I like Cuyler more than I will Sam.

"I felt better in the pocket better being able to see the field going down the field with it. Throwing the football doing what a quarterback does. If we're making comparisons. People wanna compare collar Murray to Baker Mayfield. That's not the comparison. You see Baker Mayfield. Baker Mayfield does resemble. Russell Wilson a lot more than what column Meritas Tyler Murray is still maybe shorter in terms of he's a better thrower than Lamar Jackson. So I can't put them in that category. Almost as good a runner. But not the overall athlete that Lamar Jackson is Puerto. Lamar Jackson really is a phenomenal athlete. And if he was almost like Lamar Jackson, he wouldn't be going number one. So I don't know what category to put him in. Because I do think he's a better throw. Maybe it's just the category of Kyla Murray. But I still feel that for the quarterbacks twain Haskins the best overall quarterback, obviously, it's an opinion thinking you can come after me for it. If you want to. But I look at the cardinal situation. I think Dwayne Haskins is the best QB in the draft. Arizona's still gonna draft Cuyler Murray number one overall. Well, why? Why? Schuyler Murray, overwhelmingly good, I think a lot of people. There would be some people who are Cuyler Murray. Folks, the folks in Oklahoma, the folks and maybe Arizona who have already bought in collar Murray's family. Yeah.

"And obviously, you never really know if he thought he had the bills for it. Right. Five nine maybe I'm not a pro quarterback. So let me go play baseball because I'm really good at that as well. But he is looked at as one of these elite athletes playing quarterback position not just an athletic quarterback. He's arm is a rifle. He's obviously got a great art play the outfield in baseball as well. So I just think when you look at the landscape of the NFL. Yeah. Absolutely. I can play here. Maybe he needed that Heisman Trophy season to sort of give himself that confidence. But now, it looks like he would have been all in if he'd known that he was capable of playing in the NFL the whole time it dinner you all in with him being the first quarterback taken. That's a tough question. I don't think that I am. But the thing is this you talk to scouts down and mobile senior bowl. They say that his potential in football. He's already closer to the limit of that now that he was for baseball. So for a competition standpoint, I think that's where it gets tough. You're like, yeah. He's. Good. But how much better is he actually going to get Branko Sola? I look at twain Haskins out of Ohio State. So he doesn't have baseball as an option. I would tend to take him. I when you look at that arm and look at the size, and is he mentioned Murray size. I think the NFL has changed a little bit. But there's still a lot of teams a lot of executives and coaches that don't want that quarterback that sixty and under. They think those guys are too small not saying it can't work. But I still think there are more teams that prefer the six to and taller. And what are you seem to think he was going to be the first quarterback taken by Miami or Denver or New York, but you can expound. Well, I think that he will go into top fifteen because that's where those teams are located. But I know I agree with Frank on that I think though, he'll be somebody that wants to reach up and grab him. Maybe somebody we're not talking about because the opportunity upside to be a great great quarterback in the league and the others. Don't. I would lean toward Haskins. They're basically just because of the size. He's a very smart quarterback doesn't really run that much. You can sort of trust him in the market. But in terms of Kyle he's got so many positive attributes you'd probably you can harp on the negative. If you want which is obviously his size. But he's got a lot of great things going for him. So if he's the second quarterback taken don't see a problem with that. We'll move on patriots. You'll take him Cleveland Browns making the other news day in the NFL sunning ream hunt.

"Personally might take on. This is that I liked this plan. It is basically the Kansas City plan. It is what the chiefs did with Patrick Mahomes, drafting Mahomes in the first round letting him sit behind the veteran, Alex Smith for a year, then moving on from Smith and giving the job to Mahomes, obviously that has worked out well for the chiefs doesn't necessarily mean that it would work out well for the giants, but it does show that that particular path one where you draft that young quarterback, and you don't necessarily force him onto the field right away is still a viable one into days NFL. I mean, we don't know what kind of quarterback Patrick Mahomes would have been you know, had he been forced to play right away. We'll never know. But you know, we see a lot of these young quarterbacks come into the league right now in two thousand eighteen we saw some of them. Command and play pretty well. That doesn't always happen. It did happen in two thousand eighteen doesn't necessarily mean that a quarterback like twain Haskins could come in and play. Well, right away. If that were to be the case if that were to be what was asked of him in two thousand eighteen I've said multiple times and people who follow big blue view understand that I have always been a supporter of ally. Manning's I believe that there is still a path for ally. Manning to play good football. I think that he showed that the second half of the two thousand eighteen season when the giants played better offense when they protected him better. They averaged, you know, something like twenty seven points per game over their final eight games, which put them in the top ten in the league offensively. And I think that if you can do that if you can play like that, then it's hard to argue that you absolutely need to move on. If you're putting up points in that particular at that particular clip, so I for one I like the idea of manning coming back into. Thousand nineteen I liked the idea of him tutoring or mentoring a young quarterback if the giants can find one it's brutally obvious that the giants need to find that answer as the air apparent as the long term solution for ally. Manning, it looks to me the only real option in free agency is Nick foles in. There's no guarantee that you can get Nick foles. There's no guarantee that Nick foles can be even as good as Eli manning. You know, when you turn when you put him in an offense in a uniform other than that of the Philadelphia Eagles when you look at foles career. I don't believe bolsa's ever been a sixteen game starter. He's never really had success outside of Philadelphia. I see the attraction to Nick foles, I understand the attraction to Nick foles. I get it. I'm just not a hundred percent sold that Nick. Foles can do outside of Philadelphia. What he's done in Philadelphia. So we'll see how all of that plays out. It does appear that the giants are going to to head into two thousand nineteen with Eli manning. You know, now the question is can they identify a young quarterback this draft that they feel like can be the air apparent and will they be in position to to get that quarterback. We'll have to find out once we get to the NFL draft, and everyone will have opinions as to which guy that should be Dwayne Haskins looks like quarterback one in this draft and pretty much every team that wants a quarterback is going to be trying to find a way to get ahead of the giants and get Dwayne Haskins. We'll see if the giants are are convinced enough that Haskins is you know, that guy that they would either take him at six or move up in the draft. To to guarantee that they could get him. You know, we'll see I'm not convinced that they would do that. At this point. We'll get a chance to talk to Dave Gettleman later in the spring, you know, as we get closer to the draft. And and we'll try to feel out what his what his intentions are. Alright giants fans with that said, let's switch gears here quickly, and we will bring in Connor or of Sports Illustrated dot com. What you'll hear.
Kansas City Chiefs defeat Indianapolis Colts
"We will join the AFC division game between the patriots and the chargers. And then following that. We'll get the NFC. Division game between the Philadelphia Eagles who travel to New Orleans to face the New Orleans Saints. And then the racing report was saying the Sunday supplement and Willie from nine to midnight tomorrow night. So that's your Sunday rundown. Yeah. Let's talk a little NFL little colts with Ricky in Indiana. Ricky what's going on? Fantastic. Brother. What'd you think? Are you? Well, yeah, we're waiting on the Los Angeles Rams season to end because it looks like Zack Taylor the quarterbacks coach is going to become the next head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals. So more power to the Rams and does act Taylor. Get a new coach in here. And let's get this program. Back on track. Because I don't believe it's one of the worst jobs that were opened in the National Football League. You've got a patient owner you've got out several outstanding players you just gotta keep adding to that Ed to the offensive line. And you know, Rick I can live with Devon white because I mean every mock draft see has LSU linebacker Devon white six one to forty. He's an absolute stud going to the Bengals at number eleven my feeling is. And I like the Bengals quarterback. Andy Dalton the red rifle. I think he can get you to the playoffs. I don't thinking he can win you a Super Bowl and a guy. Can I believe is Dwayne Haskins some day, and I like the Bengals to draft a quarterback into Wayne Haskins. He probably won't last two eleven. So you might have to go up trade up and get him. Okay. He's probably gonna go to the New York Jets or giants at six. Okay. And what what I'm afraid of is it the Pittsburgh Steelers knowing that Ben Rothlisberger is on the eighteenth tee of his career what one year max to me probably next year. Really should be it for Ben. They could definitely trade Antonio Brown because he is absolutely fallen out of favor with that franchise. Get a first round pick for him and use those picks to move up and take twain Haskins and. A whole bunch of Buckeye fans will become Steeler fans. No doubt. If that happens. So Ricky, and I know you're looking forward to baseball season, brother. So am I we're gonna talk who's going to be the reds center fielder? You got any predictions for me? Right now. Right. Well, I'm gonna put my chips to the middle of the table. And I'm gonna take Philip Ervin. Let's give him a chance and brother, we will talk soon. Appreciate the call from Valparaiso, Indiana, man. You are the man. Thanks so much Rik in Valparaiso Brandon's in Indianapolis, Brandon. What is going on paychecks for a little bit disappointed with I'm disappointed with the I like the Bengals stupid. I'm a colts fan. And what? Yeah. That was disappointing. They just couldn't generate anything and this this could be at for Adam venit, Terry. It is. I think it is what he's had a great career. You know? But I I don't know if it's the weather had an impact, you know. But I think Kansas City now takes I mean, I don't know if they can beat nor I could be wrong. You don't want everyone account New England out. But I thought we had a chance trickster, and I think a lot of people giving the colts a chance because. Defense is effective. But today, I think they just showed what they are about. You know, I think whoever has to go there. It's going to be hard for if it is New England or the chargers, but you never wanna Brady out. But I don't know. I think this year the chiefs get that stick it to them just kind of a morbid sense of if the New England wins tomorrow to have them get run out of the gym at Arrowhead. I would love it. Sorry. New England Patriots fans, but van I am tired of them in the in the AFC title game. I I am to see it as far as as far as the Bengals go. I I hope I hope they get the right coach. You know? I, you know, I mean, you know, the the Rams seasons. Don't go one. In hope. I wish the best for Marvin. I think he was a nice guy and all time for a change. But with the quarterback situation you were talking about Dwayne Haskins if the Bengals could draft him somehow cut me, they tried the read rightful or. Kind of like an AJ McCarron type deal if he would he would tutor Dwayne Haskins for a year and then Andy move on and make bigger dollars. Elsewhere. He would be trae trading. Yeah. He could he's like Alex Smith he could make a bunch of money elsewhere. But but the, but but groom Dwayne Haskins free year Dwayne takes over and twenty twenty. Andy Dalton moves on. I don't want to hear about what you're saying. Is you don't think doll the guy that can get you over the hump and away? Correct. Yeah. I think it probably win you a playoff game. I don't think you can get you to a Super Bowl and other that great guy. He's a good career. He's a good player. But I need an impact player taking snaps. As far as you say real quick. I know you won't get so much time as far as you see. Because were going on. 'cause I mean with not follow Butler, and because I'm from here. But. Did listen to you? See I don't think there's good as last year with oh, look who all you lost. But obviously football game tonight. But I did hear Macron's comment. He was not happy. But I think they're going to be okay. I guess against they're still NCWA. You probably know more about fourteen in three, and this is a very balanced deeper American athletic conference, and I'm loving the fact that Wichita states in there, and it's bringing back memories of the old Missouri valley when I was a kid, and that was the best conference in the land. And Brandon I gotta run man. Thanks. Yeah. Baby. I mean, I think so I really do. Yeah. They're starting to find themselves in just a huge boost to beat to beat Georgetown into comeback. Like they did. Thanks so much. I appreciate it. And I want to talk a little Cincinnati Reds when we return who is going to play center field for this club. And I wanna talk a little bit of the lineup one through eight man. Yeah. When we return

"Oh, I just wanted to know about how come Jack del Rio doesn't have any opportunity for any these jobs. He's a good coach he took the raiders to the playoffs and they lost car before they got there. I thought he did a decent job thing is our our our great Cup winning team is being dismantled in the NFL. And I was wondering if fully by Mitchell is gonna play for the giants. He's been in the Greek Cup three years in a row, they need something to an and Kevin. Thanks a lot for the call. Appreciate the real point. I don't think he's gonna get a third opportunity for Jack. I don't he coached the Jaguars. I like I've always liked the real as a player. I loved him. Very good player that went to Oakland who was his families team growing up. And I just don't know. I think del Rio's stays coach in the NFL probably fund schnitzel being a head coach the Cal. I mean, the CFL look great crop who. I don't know. I these same great Cup this Kuala about the NFL. I was just a little bit is talking about players on on the Calgary stampede correct? The go into the NFL right is getting dismantled threat. So interesting. I thought about oh. So he was talking about a Bo Levi Mitchell. Okay. Believe I'm back for Calgary. Interesting. Yeah. And now they're not gonna they're not. They're not gonna be bringing in to resurrect the giants from sorry. Yeah. I don't think. So now twain Haskins small how state that's a possibility. To the collar very sock. And now as well as great reporting. He's going to enter the NFL draft. But up next we'll get into..

"Been over the last eight years. Yeah. Well, Greg, I would totally agree. And I think to add to that it's one thing to build a program into a contender. It's an entirely different ball of wax to sustain one over a consistent period of time. You always hear coaches talk about consistency or urban Meyer is not only been able to attain consistency. He's been able to a team consistent conference in national championship contention everywhere that he has banned. And I also believe he will go down and college football is one of the greatest talent Valla valuate evaluators in terms of recruiting that we've seen in our to that point Luke's look at what he has done this year along with Ryan day who will be the head coach after today. We'll look what they've done with twain Haskins first year starter Haskins leads the nation in several passing categories. And if he comes out in the NFL draft in two thousand nine hundred and he could be the first quarterback taken he'd be mind. If I was a talent evaluator at that level. I I just look at his upside and the probably would be best served coming back. But knowing that this year's quarterback crop in the NFL draft is so diluted he would probably be the first quarterback taken. And I'm not sure there would be much of a debate surrounding it. Now. He'd be best served. Once he gets to an NFL franchise sit out a year allow him to kinda learn develop and work on becoming a pro. But as far as talent ceiling is concerned there's few that have a higher one Dwayne Haskins in Greg when when you look at what he accomplished this year.
"twain haskins" Discussed on Championship Drive
"They're gonna look, go ahead and do that. I mean, you talk about twain Haskins and the number that he puts up. They have a really played anybody in Adam. This is kind of the week. Week where we still I was talking to Josh about this. This is that weird week three where there's only a handful of games that I think that you can use his litmus test for the rest of rest of the season. Right. I feel like you have a couple of games like Auburn, Washington in week, one week two will give you Clemson Amen, where we learn a little bit something about these squads, but this is one of the, I guess, probably maybe five games that I think are very intriguing. What what else on this list of games are you going to be paying attention to where you're in that big palatial press box, which I think is the largest press box in all of college football over there. Jerry world? Yeah, it's a big when everything's big there. I would say LSU in Auburn is interesting because both teams have a signature went outside of the conference. And now most people, I think everybody in terms of our ESPN dot com crew picked Auburn to win. But if you were to win, I think we'd have to kind of recalibrate our view of LSU in the next. -tations for them. This season you to really good defenses, tremendous defensive lines to really good coordinators. I wrote about some of the up and coming coordinators to watch on the defensive side for ESPN plus today. But Kevin Steele and Dave Aranda two of the best out there and then the quarterbacks, how are they going to perform, especially Joe burrow on the road on the planes very interested to see that. I'm also really interested about Boise state and Oklahoma state, not so much that Oklahoma state is one of these teams. They can make the college football playoff. I don't think they can, but I think there's a really interesting narrative that's building between Boise state which is the program that got us to pay attention to all those teams and non power conferences and UCF, which took that to the next level last year going undefeated and then declaring itself, the national champions and building that whole movement. UCF. Unfortunately, one of the games cancelled because of the impending hurricane in the Carolinas, but Boise state with a really good start to the season now goes to Stillwater with a chance to show that it should be the top team in the group of five that we should be talking about that it's it's two thousand and eleven again, not not necessarily two thousand seventeen. Let me ask you this and building upon that. Listen, we saw last year UCF with with the amount of talent that they had with the hype factor that was going in when it came down to it, they weren't a factor in the college football, playoff, right. I mean, they, they just weren't. They weren't even close enough to being for the committee to even sniffle look at them. Is it important ceelo for Boise state to win a game like this and to go on this UCF run there on the Smurfs turf of a Boise and all of a sudden it's two years in a row that you would have quote, unquote, undefeated teams with that further. The idea of playoff. Expansion, not two years down the road or three years down the road, but continue to put some stones in their backpack when it comes to to help in that situation out, well, you every every year supposed to stand on its own. Now that's easier said than done. I think if this were to happen for a second year in row in Boise state was to go out there and get a power five scalp like an Oklahoma state and then went out for that to happen two straight years. Yes. I think you would hear more chatter about it. I think it would be a bigger push. You know, spent some time this preseason with Scott frost at Nebraska, and he continues to push even though he's now at Nebraska power, five school. He says, listen, I can't wait for the day that we go to eighteen. So eighteen like ours last year, meaning UCF will have a legitimate chance to prove it on the field that they're one of those teams that they're deserving. So, yeah, I think if you had this happen two straight years, even though every year supposed to stand on its own, I do think naturally there would be a..
