Eric Heintz, Northwest News Radio. One of the greatest mysteries in the history of the Pacific Northwest is getting new attention to thanks some new information about what may have happened to D .B. Cooper more than 50 years ago. Northwest News Radio's Kim Sheppard. That tells a story. The question is, is it the D .B. Cooper story or something else? Eric Ulis is a longtime Cooper file, host of the annual Cooper Con, which is coming up in November at the Museum of Flight. It was Thanksgiving Eve 1971 when a man going by the pseudonym Dan Cooper hopped flight from Portland to Seattle dressed in a dark suit and aviator sunglasses. He looked like any other traveler. But just minutes after takeoff, he would pass a ransom note to a stewardess demanding parachutes and two hundred dollars in cash. Once they landed in Seattle, the other passengers were kicked off the plane and ordered Cooper the pilot to return to the air headed for Mexico City. When they stopped to refuel midflight, and the cash had disappeared,

"Mac Jones. We watched the Kansas City Chiefs against Jordan love. Was it last week two weeks ago? I don't remember how recent it was. But they had this really great game plan where they blitzed Jordan love Tony young quarterback. They played man coverage on the outside and said, you have to beat us throwing the ball downfield. We're gonna take away your running game. We are going to blitz you a ton, play cover zero and challenge you to beat our man coverage. Jordan love was incapable of doing that. He couldn't identify blitz very well. He couldn't beat man coverage. I'd love to find out, could Mac Jones beat the man coverage from the Kansas City chief. Does that even possible? That would be really I have to know. That sounds amazing to find out. I really, really want to see that matchup. And I think that would talk about a wild card weekend. Patriots against Kansas City would be an amazing matchup. I want to see that I am now rooting for that. I didn't think I would be. But I very much want to see that. All right. Let me see if there's any other notes before we get into a potential Matt Ryan trade. The offensive line is bad. Oh man, here's something I didn't talk about yet from this game. So Atlanta through not one, not two, not three, even but four interceptions in a row on their final four drives. It's awful. Matt Ryan was 19 for 28 passing a 153 yards. Zero touchdowns, two interceptions. He's had a really bad couple of games. But on the final four drives of the game, Atlanta through four interceptions. The first one was kind of a throw the mat Ryan was forcing downfield. Nothing was really there. He's getting kids he throws. I can't blame that Ryan at this point for an interception. I've got late in the game in the fourth quarter. Your offense has done nothing all day. You're getting more and more desperate. You're trying to make a play. By the fourth quarter, you down a bunch of points, you're trying to make something happen. I don't blame Matt Ryan at all for throwing a bad interception. Just trying to make something happen downfield. On the second intercept throws a ball a little bit high along the left sideline, receiver tips it up, JC Jackson grabs it. Almost a pick 6, by the way that JC Jackson stepped out of bounds, so Matt ran at two interceptions..

"No, dead for 5 and 5. And I'm pretty, I'm pretty disappointed in how the Broncos a year is going. It's just not been good. And very, very frustrating. Number 5, the Dallas Cowboys dominated the falcons 43 to three. It was a great win for Dallas coming off of a bad loss last week to Denver. And cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, used to be the head coach of the falcons last year. We got fired. And so in this game, it felt like, hey, Dan Quinn got his revenge. It was cool to see. It appeared like he used his knowledge of the falcons quarterback. His former quarterback Matt Ryan to make Matt Ryan suffer. Oh my gosh, Matt Ryan. He was 9 for 21 passing. Had a 117 yards, which is pretty good for 9 completions. But he had two interceptions. It was ugly. This score three points all day, and then the backup quarterback came in for the falcons. Josh Rosen, hey, remember that guy? Josh Rosen. He's still the NFL. He was one for 6 passing. He also had an interception. It was a completely dominating win by the Dallas Cowboys. And good to see for them to come back and bounce back after a really bad loss during NFL week 9. Number 6 the page rates droid. The Cleveland Browns 45 to 7. Remember that the Patriots head coach Bill Belichick used to coach in Cleveland. He got fired, and every time the Patriots play Cleveland, he punishes them. The Patriots, by the way now, are 6 and four. They've won four games in a row. I've been saying this and I think other people are starting to agree with me, New England looks like a playoff team. They're playing very good football Mac Jones. They're young, rookie quarterback gets better and better every week. He's the real deal. Against the browns Mac Jones. What a great performance. Efficient, clean, really high level play, he was 19 for 23, with a 198 yards and three touchdowns, the Patriots have found the replacement to Tom Brady. It was not Jimmy Garoppolo as he probably thought it would be a couple years ago for Bill Belichick. But now they have Mac Jones and it is a home run. He's fantastic..

"We blame the quarterback. We blame everybody, but the name and I don't live in New York. I don't know what's being said in New York. But I know that nationally, people always talk about the coach and the quarterback. And this and that, the offensive coordinator, people, I think tend to forget the guy that picks the players often has an impact on how good the football team is. Dave gettleman is the biggest problem the Giants have right now in their franchise. How about Pittsburgh? Things are bad in Pittsburgh right now, too. Things are bad right now in Pittsburgh, they're one and two, they just lost to the Bengals and Cincinnati. Big bend their starting quarterback. By the way, the game I guess was actually technically in Pittsburgh. So they lost in front of their home fans. I remember seeing the here we go, sign in the background. I love that statement. It's beautiful. Big Ben, the starting quarterback of Pittsburgh had two interceptions against Cincinnati last week and week three. He's been very, very frustrating to watch this year in the NFL. And people are quick to call him washed up. I would say like, it's only three games. I don't want to get so caught up in the moment that I forget that the Steelers beat buffalo week one. It was a good win. Big Ben did it up to win that game..

Oklahoma should have lost that game. Oklahoma shoulders that game. There could have been plenty of upsets.

If they hold on, you know, it's oh, it was just week one. They're able to survive. Get get ready, But, Yeah, they had two interceptions and I believe another turnover on downs where they went for it on fourth and didn't get it. So you have three turnovers in the fourth quarter.

"A lane time Now for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless We hear from the two head coaches, First Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley and then to Lanes Willie Fritz, give to lane credit. You know, I give him credit. I mean, they made a lot of place. You know, they threw and caught the ball. Well, the two interceptions we through our phenomenal plays on the ball. Um so I give them a lot of credit. They played a lot better than we did in the second half, and the mentality was a lot better than Irish. In the second half. I'm proud of the way we we. We finished because again when football is always a game of momentum, and when it's going the way it was for us, Um you've got to find your best, sir, at the end, and we did a great job getting to stop defensively and then being able to run out the clock with the two runs there to finish the game. I was very proud of the guys. I thought they fought extremely hard throughout the ball game. You know, just way too Quick Creek lairs in the first half. It really hurt us, Uh, you know, offense and defense relation, a couple times some poor ball security and missed assignments. And then we Lost leverage when we had placed plane should have been two or three instead of 15 16 and one of those on the third down situation, Uh, Neil, but there's some good stuff. A lot of kids kept fighting scratching plan We had It was a game where I got two new coordinators are all breaking in each other. Be with them than with me. The other coaches, uh, you know, so so really proud of the effort. Obviously, we didn't come down here to play close. I thought we could have won the game. We played better in the first half. I think we would have had Much better opportunity to do it again. Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley and to lean head coach Willie Fritz Our game Day cruise Saturday. Matt Shit, Trevor Maddox and Harry Douglas on ESPN radio on what went down in Norman. How much of a concern Do you guys have with Oklahoma? Harry? Start with you. Um, I'm concerned. I'm concerned about the defense. You look at the years uh Lincoln Riley has taken over this team. What has been the cloud hovering over them? The dark cloud defense can't get stopped. Defense kid couldn't can't get stops. You look at this year, Everyone said the defense is going to be better. Well, if you let a two lane Come this close to beating you. And I don't want to hear anything about defense. At some point, they have to get it fixed. And I and I like they did their defensive line and their defense line actually made place today and calls those turnovers. But you lie back and crew. Your secondary. Everything has to work in unison. If you want an opportunity to make it back to the college football playoffs and win the big 12, and from an offensive standpoint, they had a lot of yards, scored a lot of points and left a lot of opportunities on the table. They did. Yeah, I'll just give you one of those opportunities. Marvin Memes, one of the best receivers in the country, was running a post from the left side and Spencer Rattler. The quarterback hit him and it was a gain of about 25 yards. It was great should have been a touchdown because that ball came in a little bit behind. Men's men's had to slow down, reach back to catch the ball, and that allowed the defender to close the distance and make the tackle. If that ball would have been out in front of memes, he'd still be running now. And I think Coach Lincoln Riley will look at places like that and say Okay, guys, Yeah, that was good look good in the statute, etcetera, but it should have been a long touchdown. So we need to get better some of those things, so the offense as good as it was still wasn't as smooth as it needs to be. That Chick Trevor Mad at Harry Douglas.

"You get that second contract once you get their second contract. The franchises saying you're guy and the cowboys waited to the last possible moment. They waited until the last possible moment to make him their guy but they did. I'll give you a perfect perfect example of a guy who made a lot of money but was not seems franchise quarterback exactly kirk cousins kirk. Cousins is guy where he played well for the washes washington redskins before they turn to. The football team gave him to franchise tags and they didn't believe in them. They didn't believe in them. And they only franchise tagged him. But they didn't make him their franchise right. And then the vikings said no that's a franchise and we all know what happened after that. So kirk cousins is the perfect example of a team where he played well but an organization. That didn't believe in that guy. Yeah the word that keeps coming up. Here is belief. The belief has to be there for that person to be a franchise quarterback first and foremost. Because if you don't believe the guy he's second contract is going to happen. So that belief has to be there and then that back has to go out there and improve it because even if you get that same contract to believe you that your franchise quarterback you gotta go there and proved that you are the franchise quarterback prescott that right now. If they believe he is dead franchise quarterback he s and lead them to the playoffs and within the next three or four years that we talk about hopefully lead into championship. So i just think there is an interesting little thing to talk about. 'cause s thrown out. Allot oh that's that tees sprint quebec. Well what makes quarterback. What has he done to be a franchise quarterback and it's different for different quarterbacks. I guess i want to say as well. Look tom brady. Tom brady didn't come into. England's a franchise quarterback hughes's six round draft pick right so when he came in there like this you got they only saw. What do you guys like. You're definitely a franchise quarterback at their sooner point one rubles. So i mean i just think that the phrases thrown out there too quickly sometimes for some players. They haven't really done anything or has it been organization. Long enough for for them to be franchise. Quarterbacks there are some people have thought of kirk. Cousins is a franchise quarterback hopping from place to place. There's no way he's a fresh quarterback. No one's air believed him to give him attack. The vikings did well writings pre vikings. As i'm talking with the washington risk but like we just said it's the organization that orangey believes in you. Day can make you a franchise quarterback which minnesota did for for cousins. Yeah couple of agree. I mean we can talk about. Longevity is a Fitzpatrick is that a franchise quarterback of course not. He's not he's you know. So i guess maybe increase you hit it on the nail again. Maybe once you get to the second contract because when she said contra that's that's a proves longevity and then as if in the team in and then obviously production on the field. You brought jameis winston. I'm gonna guess. Put up all kinds of stats. Yeah the reason why. He's not a franchise quarterback of the reason why the coaching staff and organization lost belief in them. The guy throws two interceptions way to me. I mean we look at his touchdowns when we got also those a lot of touchdowns right so it's decision. May it's all encompassing. But i think you know. First and foremost the coaching staff organizational belief in you And then comes what you're producing on the field and from that point on you know you have the backing of the fans the players and what does the structure of an organization. Look like when you bring your your talk about or we talk about. What bro tom brady brought brings to his teams. You know anybody that's plan for. Tom brady knows. Hey i'm coming to win. I'm coming to play for a championship. And i'm gonna take work seriously. we're talking to you talking about the same thing with drew. Brees you coming in right. It's a do same thing. Aaron rodgers you talk about that right. We talk about deck we talk about. Well doesn't have all the talent of everybody else but the platform that believe in an organization believes in the model taken two years in the might of overpaid and paid all kinds of money. You know but there's that belief in backing in the fans believe in players believe for him and all those things so Yeah it's i think. It's all this all encompassing. But i think first and foremost comes the belief Yeah that's absolutely true. Is there person or a quarterback you guys can think of. That wasn't initially a franchise quarterback in their. I one around came back and proved to be quarterback and won a championship. Jurors drew brees. Kurt warner anchor. At wonder woman named kurt warner reason. Excellent one he's he's probably the yeah. He's a poster boy for it. Yeah he's he's. I look at quarterback. Now that had the opportunity. We just talk about demons. Winston marcus is mariota's another guy. Right now he was in tennessee. His name was being thrown out as a franchise quarterback during that time was drafted in first round. You're automatically franchise quarterback. I i think i think that's what that's what i'm talking to the label like even if you're dressed in the first round you could be wrong about that guy. Being in france they were all your. But we're just talking about the label itself right. We're not ever made team's always wrong right. But the label itself once he draft first round. You're automatically franchise quarterback and if you're not the net whoever drafted you should be fired immediately. Well can't waste a first round. Pick on somebody. Don't believe so. Here's i'm gonna have been wronged in. Here's what i'm going to nitpick. Let's talk about right. You said exactly what you're saying chris. Then the head coach of the of the green bay packers should have been fried. 'cause jordan should have and on the first round so he does action. You're right now you're right. He's an exception jordan. Love is an exception. Aaron rodgers isn't except it's funny there by the packers the packers one of the rare teams drafts a player. But they might still think he's a franchise core begged his way to turn they. Did they definitely think he is. But he's not because aaron rodgers their right right when aaron rodgers became a packer. He wasn't because of their. Yeah but he in. The organizations is the next franchise quarterback. I lo- i hear what you're saying. But once the draft in the first round you better be franchised moon open no matter what picking first round. You're going to be a frantically matter of. I think it doesn't matter. I think we're i think i think these are owners. Whatever thinner problem miss the mislabeling. It could be just to remember because you remember back in the day teams. When they drive the quarterbacks most of them didn't play immediately. now that's how it is right now. They're playing immediately most times. It happened the way it happened with. Aaron rodgers and the green bay. Packers you came in. You sat four year two maybe three years three and a half years and then you became a player because you you got to learn how to play the position how to lead the team how to organization works. Then you came in. And typically those quarterbacks were a lot more successful and now there's this impatience with quarterback so now they have to be franchise quarterback now so maybe that's also a a generational or time period thing as well so now you have to be. i grew. yeah. I grew down a time period thing because now the quarterbacks is more prepared. You're not gonna really the likelihood of catching the tom brady in. The six round now is not likely because you've been exposed to seven hundred seven's we've seen you in high school. We've seen you in college. We've seen you after college. I mean it's just it's too much information out there. And the game is much easier for quarterbacks which you bring up a great point low the the packers are really the only organization that i can think that still draft in stashes in the first round work to do that now but his work as worked worked with aaron rodgers. Yes but i think it also costs them a super bowl with both brett farve in ann. Rogers because didn't have enough talent in years where they.

Turnovers Doom Saints in 30-20 NFC Divisional Playoffs Loss to Bucs
"Bill. I just want to dive into it here. Because there's a lot to get to after watching the bucks. Beat the saints. Thirty to twenty so new orleans had been in tampa bay twice this season in week. One about four hundred years ago and then again in november. So what was the difference in this game vs those other two. I really simple pablo the saints. Just didn't protect the football. In the two regular season games between these teams the saints won the turnover battle. Both times there are plus three in the week one victory and then one up in the rematch. Tom brady threw five picks across those two games. Only seven in his other fourteen games. That really felt like the saints had his number and they were gonna have to flip that to win in new orleans. Well they flipped. It didn't turn the ball over the saints coughed up. Four times including three interceptions drew brees. The bucks turned the first few takeaways and two touchdowns and use the fourth to wrap up the game and kneel down. It's virtually impossible to win a playoff game. That sort of margin the saints will just sloppy in this game. Mean breeze could have thrown four or five picks. He threw an awful interception under pressure for the first one and on the same page with alvin kamara on a scene route for the second interception. The third bounced off jared cook. Who also fumbled away a completion on a drive where the saints were looking at. Go up to scores. They lost the ball and proceeded to give up seventeen unanswered points to end their season. So clearly the bucks had a formula of sorts for stopping breeze in it seemed like every aspect of this game. But it's not just that they stopped him instead. They made him look straight up terrible really often and i'm wondering how did they do that to that degree. Well i really think that todd bowles bucks defense. Look the tape from last week's game against the bears look how drew brees was playing. Look at how pal those receivers were moving and just didn't think there was anybody in that lineup who could reliably win against man coverage or beat them down field with their speed. This was especially true. After the saints lost deonte harris who had two long punt returns early in this game to a neck injury the saints did get a long touchdown but it was not with brees on the field. It was the lone snap for one jameis winston who came in and use the same trick. Play the bears ran against them last week. For a long touchdown coming across his sanders they handed to them. Refers goes to jameson mega man. Wide open trade smith at the twenty five fifteen ten five and a touchdown saints and jameis winston. What a touchdown pass against his former overall when breeze on the field it was pretty clear at the game plan was to dare him and his receivers to try and take shots towards the sidelines and get downfield and the game plan worked the bucks used heavy doses of twists and stunts upfront create pressure and then just smothered breezes receivers. I honestly it really felt the only reason. Sean payton didn't bench breeze for winston on the last drive. The game is because it was probably a last few snaps of drew brees his career.

"Just it was a surprise cuz I could have never thought that would happen. I'm like no way the browser not going to win this game and they did and not only did they win the game. They were up 28 nothing in the first quarter. It's crazy to me. Now. It does have to be acknowledged that Pittsburgh handed them a lot of points. First of all the very first play of the game maurkice Pouncey Z nine-time Pro Bowl center for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's a pro bowler this year snap the ball up over Big Ben Roethlisberger's head and the brakes are covered the bad snap for a touchdown bam. First play seven nothing like oh what a crazy way to start the game and then it got worse and worse and worse than a two interceptions and a three-and-out and the Steelers had three turnovers just in the first quarter by the end of the game. The Steelers had five total turnovers Big Ben had yeah. He had five hundred yards passing. He had four touchdown passes. Oh, yeah, by the way, Big Ben also had four interceptions. Oh, that's not good. That's very very bad off and I just the Steelers played terrible. They didn't show up. They looked disorganized. They did not look on the same page. There was a play where Eric Ebron probably should have stopped in the window Big Ben thought he was dead. Eric Ebron kept going it's a guy open who ran the wrong route and miscommunicated with the quarterback. It was not good. It wasn't pretty and it's just it's insane to me how far the Steelers have fallen from where they once were dead at one point during this season. I made a video I talked about how I believe that the Pittsburgh Steelers were a playoff team. They were running the ball very well playing good defense. They had receivers making plays left and right. Do you have to Johnson Chase Claypool Juju Smith Schuster, the guy had good running backs, like everything was running a very very smoothly for Pittsburgh early on this year. And in the second half of the year, they fell apart. They couldn't run the ball effectively. They their playmaking receiver suddenly stopped making plays dropped passes like crazy Eric Ebron, Jack Johnson was a massive culprit. It just got worse and worse and worse and Chase Claypool emerged as a really good player, but it's like man, it was so disappointing to watch this really capable football team would fall apart and I just not to mention they had injuries on defense and made things even worse. They're they're probably the strength of their team their defense really got Kimpton fell apart as injuries piled up and the brown sorry the Steelers completely fell apart the Steelers just one point where a team I was very impressed with playing they were playing great football. I mean you can say well there were always signs. They weren't going very good. They're always overrated say what you want. They were playing fantastic football early on in the year and it just fell apart man. It's it's a It's a collapse a complete collapse the Pittsburgh Steelers and I want to really quickly touch on Juju Smith Schuster. Juju had a quote earlier this week and I don't know the intention if you watch the video of JuJu talking about it..

Alex Smith, with a strong start in his return to the lineup, had two first half touchdown passes.

BYU QB Wilson, likely first-rounder, entering draft
"Plays Clemson at 8 P.m. Eastern and the Sugar Bowl for a spot in the college football National championship game. All eyes air entering this game or on Justin Fields. Fields in the Big 10 championship game struggled immensely. With his final stat line, and the wind against Northwestern was was 12 passes completed out of 27 attempts. Only 114 passing yards, no passing touchdowns, two interceptions, and the Ohio State signal caller only averaged 2.9 yards per carry running the football. Earlier today. BYU quarterback exact Wilson Declare for the NFL draft, and the conversation currently is still Will be Wilson or fields as the second quarterback taken in the NFL draft after trouble Lawrence Zack with that conversation surrounding fields on size or offsides fields. We'll send a statement to his draft critics tonight and show us that he should be the second quarterback off the board. Come in the NFL draft. Besides, I'm gonna go off sides here and I'm not saying Justin Fields can play a good game time. He can't be worse than what he did up against Northwestern. Unless if he balls out and gets the victory, that's the only way that you show a definitive argument why he should be the second quarterback. There's a lot of debate. There's gonna be a lot of conversation leading up to that right now. It seems that Momenta miss shifting to Zach Wilson, and now it's up to Justin Field to try to get that back. Ultimately. Even if fields plays well. And there he could play. We'll go blow to blow up against Trevor Laurence and the Clemson football team. I just don't think Clinton's went and I said this all year. I know it's not going out on a limb. I just feel as if we're on a collision course to see Alabama and Clemson once again. So unless it fields gets that win, I don't think there is enough of a statement that is going to get sent tonight to basically guarantee that he'll be the second quarterback off the board and then fields coming in at number three. Or maybe even for dependent on what you think of trade Lance and Mack Jones. So I do go outside just in fields will not send the statement tonight In my opinion. And I still think there will be draft critics. They're questioning him on if he should be the second quarterback off the board, all
Bill Barnwell on NFL Week 14
"To one bill barnwell. We just watched the now. Ten and three bills beat the now eleven two steelers twenty six to fifteen and i am not certain of many things in this world anymore. But i am pretty certain. They're going to be a lot of babies named josh or in buffalo alone that people in buffalo are named. Ej drew rob tyron. We're all going to have to change their name to josh. Over the next few months bill barnwell host the bill barnwell show podcast. And you can find his indispensable. Nfl column on espn plus every monday. He's also never broken a table that we know of. They'll help me understand this. How did the buffalo bills turned things around after such a slow. Start on offense tonight. This was interesting because the slowest kinda out to these sort of exact start you would want right. I mean josh. Allen was struggling the steelers pass rush was in his face early and often does allen. Started this game seven of sixteen for thirty nine yards with an interception and a fumble alan of the gun. He's back late rush. Throws it down the left side line and it's intercepted that is a great offense was struggling on the side of the ball. It's fair to say but look like the steelers were josh allens head and maybe last year that would have been it. Josh allen never would have recovered this year is different. Josh allen is different and he has a weapon nobody can cover and the combination of allen and stefan digs took advantage of some rare mistakes and misplace. From the pittsburgh steelers allen's a hot stretch started really with the steelers tried to tackle digs on a third in three without hands which is hard. Alan took that playoff field for twenty three yards. And then he got going digs had two catches on plays. Were still defensive. Backs just fell down including a touchdown and now made one great throw against to coverage for a touchdown. Pass to gabriel davis. Cox's arm fires into the renzo caught buffalo touchdown bills. Gabriel davis caught a thirteen yard strike. And a second throw on the run of long pass interference penalty to dos knox. It seemed like the steelers might have figured out the third year quarterback but by the second half it was pretty clear things where the other way around so looking at the steelers now bill. I am curious what exactly has been solved with them because this is a team that went from undefeated not so long ago to losing two in a row now to washington and buffalo so based on what. You've seen these last two weeks. How worried should pittsburgh actually big. There's reasons for legitimate concern here. I mean the defense will the problem at the end of the day they all. The bills scored nineteen points. So i'm not stressed about the defense on the whole he's had some injuries that's going to be a legitimate concern but this is still a very good defense and they are prohibitive favorites still to win the afc north. But i think even before the last two games last two losses there were concerns about this offense. The steelers came into this game ranked thirtieth in rushing offense. Dvr a football outsiders efficiency statistic but roethlisberger was twenty ninth in the league in completion percentage on de passing becoming very erratic deep passer and the stairs basically happened left with an offense but almost exclusively consists of short passes trying to the ball. Out of rothlisberger hands quickly. That's help keep him healthy. Which is great but that offense has one explosive game. Since the start in november and sunday night was not the second we saw the offense struggle in the exact same ways even though they got james conner. They're starting running back back in the lineup. They lost multiple starting offensive linemen to run the seventeen times for forty seven yards. And we're at. The speaker tried to throw deep. He was one of five for nineteen yards with a touchdown and pick now. It's possible the steelers are tired after basically going fourteen weeks without a real by they've had their to buy weeks of course basically taken away due to covert concerns. Remember the one saving grace all year for the steelers. That's they were going. Undefeated was the possibility of getting that week off asks the number one seed in the afc. Now they fall fallen behind the chiefs with bosses in their past two games. The upshot only gives steelers in eight percent. Chance of coming away with the number one seed in the conference talked about last week. That's the only way to get a buy in the playoffs. At this point the stakes happened raised for the steelers. I'm not sure whether they're up to the challenge and it feels like it is only clear that the measuring stick against which all contenders are evaluated has to be kansas city and the chiefs spill. They seem to find themselves in some amount of danger on sunday. Only to escape narrowly against the dolphins and their young quarterback to and tug of lois. Oh after watching. Patrick mahomes ultimately win this game. Thirty three to twenty seven. How did miami put this biggest scare into the now twelve in one chiefs so i will. They did something that nobody has been able to do to the chiefs all season. That's forced takeaways. Patrick mahomes hasn't made any spectacular plays. Maybe this year. Has he did during that. Mvp season his first. Starting your twenty eighteen. But they've been really effective at avoiding. Take ways they haven't had one takeaway in any one given game until the dolphins game against the dolphins homes through to early interceptions to help the dolphins get out to attend. Nothing lead back to throw my extra fake look and dumped it down. Intercepted ball picked second interception up the day of patrick mahomes and while the chiefs runoff thirty consecutive points to go ahead. The dolphins strip mccall hardin inside the red zone to stop possession the second half and then saving howard picked off mahomes in the end zone for kansas city's fourth turnover of the game. Now i don't know if that's a sustainable formula for opposing team's doing from one turnover as a maximum to four. But they were able to get back into the game and the chiefs a genuine battle by forcing those takeaways from an offense. That just hasn't done that. Really aussies

It doesn't matter because don because you've been telling me all he does is drink and done his backs. Skip good if i thought about georgia. Being the hall of fame. Completions didn't battle. All i was only refuting your point. He's just a dink dunker now. That's what said he's got no arm. He's a noodle arm spaghetti white house. Completion percentage down the field who leads the whole. Nfl in air distance. And i think he just pulled away. Last night beth as consequential stat you saw him throwing the ball down the field lighting and dunk last night when he didn't think and how do look when did he deacon dunk. I think conductor for net three times that he dropped all three of them note that he had antonio brown hair thirteen target eight catches for fifty seven yards seven point one of material. He had ten targets. The chris with seven yards seven catches for fifty three yards. Dak seven point six. He had one receiver that had a double digit average own completion. You he deacon and dunkin what was the final score deferrals court with tom brady lost and the rams one. That's what jared goff. First of all jerry gulf in charm paid like the gave this thing away because they got ultra conservative and they got careless the football but somebody makes go but scale you look off last night. There's no way around it. I don't want to hear anything about the defense. Because i told you everybody based everything because if you wash tampa bay everybody wanted to annoy them after. They did with green bay. And i'll say if you watch that defense. I say the into who said i didn't get to us. They can be hey. I think they're very undisciplined. I out of position a lot more. You think but because that pass rush covers up but they don't get home they can be had. Whoa that they're coming. They could be had skilled. Tom brady he got happy feet. Another one get here and they gotta run. They really do a whole lot but they got around him a little bit and he had had like polka polka. Like do the poco.
Las Vegas Raiders face 'daunting task' with COVID-19 issues ahead of game vs. Kansas City Chiefs
"Kid city chiefs at eight point favorite leg. I said we'll get to that in a second on the road against the vegas raiders on this game. Fifty six and a half. We will have. John cheering on later. I'm sure he'll be able to explain whether slightly above the market pain. i have to believe. That's all covid related to be quite honest. The raiders defense in the contact tracing protocol. We're not quite sure. If i'm going to have to get called up to play safety and let me tell you my foot speed not enough to slow down tyreek hill and open spaces really wouldn't say i mean i might try and slew coming off the line. That'd be my only shot. so listen. I the raiders offensive game plan back in week five was good. Obviously but the halftime adjustments that. Paul guenther in the raiders. Defensively really is what i think won them the game. It's really what gave the chiefs offense trouble. You really hadn't seen that from the chiefs offense before during this. Patty mahomes like run especially against the defense of that caliber. You go back to week. Five in the second half. Kansas city was successful. Only twenty one percent of their snaps. One point to carry twenty eight percent success rate through their moms is pressured. A ton the raiders. Were able to do something in that game. They hadn't been able to do most of the season which is get pressure vegas. Twenty six on the season pass rush win rate and then obviously after a few good games. Recently where the raiders have been able to apply some pressure to quarterbacks. They've surged to an average defense in pressuring the week. Five game if you look at some of these numbers. Mahomes was pressured on forty. Seven percent of total dropbacks specifically from eleven personnel. Were kansas city. Essentially lives seventy three percent of the time moms pressured on fifty seven percent of those three wide sets. I would envision off the bye with the little extra motivation of not. Just losing to the raiders but but kansas city not being really happy about gruden and the gang taken victory laps around the the stadium there drivers using using the loudspeaker thereafter the week. Five win that Andy reid is probably gonna come with a pretty good game plan here and you know past the success that andy. Reid is hat off the bye. You mentioned this. The raiders are are probably going to be without a few key defenders but You know another handful of defensive players are going to miss practice all week due to this contact tracing. It's probably isn't the offense that you wanna face short handed in in pissed off and not having practiced to four. I would think. I also believe we'll probably see a little more play action for mandatory. You know patty mahomes in the chiefs past game will probably fair little bit. Better here with play action. Especially if if the pressure starts to barrel down. I would also think that it's worth mentioning that three chiefs offensive lineman or on the cova the list it's believed to be contact tracing but we'll have to see this certainly make this game a little bit different. If if all three of those offensive lineman are out. You also expect sammy. Watkins to return in this game us a full practice participant on wednesday so he should be a full ghost that they're gonna have their their complement of weapons out there. The number in this thing is is really interesting. But i think that this tougher makes a lot of sense. I i just don't see. Kansas city's offense not bouncing back here in a major way talk. i mean. They're playing with a chip on their shoulder. Which is always dangerous to begin with. We've seen their passing offense. That was more a work in progress. Probably the nicest way to put it early on in the season and no doubt that was by design. Get on track with mahomes during for more than eight hundred yards the last two games when you look at the way. Mahomes performed against the raiders. Fifteen total touchdowns just two interceptions one of them of course coming earlier this year the chiefs loss as a double digit home favor and i think it's pretty staggering to know what costs kansas city. That game is the fact that hey look. They finished a net negative minus sixty four in terms of rushing yards. The raiders held the ball for nearly eleven minutes longer and kansas city knows that they can hit the home runs. That are widely available. If they keep mahomes operate i think. The raiders passing defenses. You mention it may trending in the right direction. There's no doubt a lot of optimism out here around the raiders especially on the defensive side of the ball. This is a different beast that they're going to try and counter and with sammy watkins back amongst others. I just don't know where the raiders consistently find a way to get off the field. I agree with that. And i get it. You have to young corners in trayvon mullin in our net and people are thinking to themselves like. Hey we're trending in the right direction. We're starting to get some pressure. Would you look you play at the browns. The total is suppressed because of weather and wind. You're at the chargers. It's likely a a lost game. If two guys can hold onto football on the back corner fate and then the broncos last week and drew lock was clearly injured after taking a hit in the second quarter but you could have been trailing at halftime in that game so listen. I think the raiders are better than we all expected. You look at who they've lost to. It's it's the bills box and patriots. All pretty good teams obviously bucks in bills being very good patriots. You know with bill tough spot. There is well off the monday night game traveling across the country. So i get the by of the raiders. I just need to see more defensively to believe it's real and so that that's kind of where i'm out on that unit. I fully expect kansas city to do some good things here. Offensively

"Like Chicago Bears traded Ford Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles yesterday and I'm not sure there any quarterbacks who have had a stranger career than Nick Foles everybody knows about that incredible postseason run with the eagles in twenty seventeen the rest of his resume is kind of spotty had one season where he threw twenty seven touchdowns and two interceptions the best team need to interception ratio in NFL history but that was with chip Kelly number one ship was reinventing the NFL back in twenty thirteen with the eagles he's one of a handful quarterbacks ever throw seven touchdowns in a game so he's done incredible things went toe to toe with Brady in the Superbowl but he's also had a disappointing season with the rams a backup with the chiefs disastrous contract in Jacksonville that wasn't his fault got injured in Jacksonville now he's reunited with former offense to coach Matt Nagy in Chicago so which Nicole shows up who knows and is he good enough to beat out Mitchell Trubisky all we know is falls is not scared you don't want to play against him in a big game the question is will the bears get that far where he plays in a

Super Bowl XXXIX Recap: Patriots vs. Eagles
"The game we most fans remember. Andy Reid foremost is super bowl. Thirty nine and especially how the game finished up in the last six minutes. But let's set things up here just a little bit coming into Super Bowl all thirty nine. Both the Patriots and Eagles were the best teams in their conference. Both number one seeds both had tremendous seasons. The Patriots went fourteen and two that season season as they were looking for their third super bowl title in four years. Obviously Tom Brady was just beginning his run as the greatest quarterback of all time but he'd already established himself as a two time superbowl champion. And so the odds were stacked against the eagles a little bit in the Super Bowl although the eagles were far and away the best team team in the NFC that season having gone thirteen and three really they were essentially a one loss team. They lost to the Pittsburgh steelers in the middle of the season but they had clinched the number for one seat in the conference with two games left in the season and basically didn't play anybody in the final two games and that's why they went thirteen and three. The Eagles probably could have been a fifteen in one team if they'd actually played their starters in the final two games of the season but thirteen and three is nothing to sneeze at and it was certainly good enough to get them the number one seed in the playoffs The Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings rather handily in the NFC divisional round and then in the NFC championship game. As you heard me talk about on the last edition of BG and memories when we took a look back at the ten greatest moments in Eagles NFC championship game. History when they dispatch the Falcons pulling away in the second in half winning that game. Twenty seven to ten on New England also had a pretty easy time in the postseason. They won their divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts. It's twenty two three and then they won the AFC title against the steelers. Forty one to twenty seven. Bill Belichick Charlie. Weis the offensive coordinator at that time for New England Oakland and on the side. Of course you had Andy Reid calling the plays and Jim Johnson The defensive coordinator at the Blitz Happy Defensive Coordinator one of the big story lines. The the biggest story line going into Super Bowl thirty nine was of course the health of terrel owens who was hurt against the Dallas cowboys a few weeks before the end of the season He had A. He broke his leg on a horse collar. Tackle that has now been deemed illegal because of that hit but as the game started getting closer it started to appear as though Teo Jio would be able to get on the field and Tara loans for the Eagles in two thousand and two thousand four was the difference. He took the eagles from being a very very good team. Urine in your out to an almost unbeatable team That season in fourteen games really was just thirteen games because he was hurt early in that game against the cowboys he caught seventy any seven passes for twelve hundred yards and fourteen touchdowns for the eagles that season for the first time in his career. Donovan mcnabb had a true number one receiver seaver to throw the ball to but the eagles offense performed quite well whether well without Tara loans in the two playoff games but to beat the Patriots it was clear the eagles goals. We're GONNA need him and he managed to get. He managed to get back in time six weeks after surgery to repair his broken right ankle. He was on the the field for the start of Super Bowl. Thirty nine Donovan. mcnabb had his best season. An Eagle in two thousand and four mostly because terrel owens was on the outside and he and mcnabb was outstanding in two playoff wins against the Vikings and the Falcons mcnabb had always struggled in those NFC title game but he played very well against Atlanta Atlanta. One or the other storylines that Freddie Mitchell was running his mouth. He came into the game talking a lot of smack about safety Rodney Harrison telling Harrison that he he was gonna have something for him and then in the game you know Freddie Mitchell caught one pass which late in the fourth quarter and Harrison had Two interceptions as we'll get to here in just Dominica and of course the Patriots were looking to officially become a dynasty. They had beaten the rams had upset. The Rams in the Super Bowl three years before they had failed to get back to the super bowl the year after that. But in two thousand three or just after the two thousand three season they beat the Carolina Panthers and one of the most underrated super bowls in NFL NFL history. And we're looking for their third title in four years. Andy Reid looking for that first title after finally getting the Eagles back to the Super Bowl for the first time since nineteen eighteen eighty so that was the setup as the teams gathered on the field in Jacksonville Florida for Super Bowl. Thirty
