"Blake was able to get them and get the ball to the to the offense of weapon to build a take advantage, two things about New England's defense that you should know Logan, Ryan, the corner he can be had their linebackers in man-to-man have never been good. So if you play all that man to man and you can get the ball to your running back to your tidy and take advantage of their lack of coverage skill at their linebacker position. That is the recipe to try to beat New England. Last time, these two teams played. The one knock on Jackson was that they weren't aggressive. They came out in the second half and they kind of relied on that that lead they had and that was the end of it. And then Doug Marrone heard about this all off season long. How much of that as a player or as a coach sort of sticks you like you remember the last time you played at team and they can talk all we can game plan all off season, but you remember who they were, who you thought they were the last time he played. Does that factor in at all to the patriots off the Jags we're going to do no doubt about it because you're gonna look at everything that you. You did in in the season, two thousand seventeen, and you're going to make the corrections and you're going to say, okay, look, we're one of the top teams in the they got a great roster. They're playing a physical brand of football. You know, with Tom Coughlin there in Doug Marrone. Got great respect for both of those coaches, Doug doing a great job, but they out physical in the trenches, we always say, you got to be able to run the football and stop the run to win a National Football League. And I know it's becoming a passing league and I know and people are in three wides like sixty five seventy percent of the time now, but yelled five point eight per carry. I think they held a New England three point four yards per carry. And I know they got behind a little bit and they had to throw it a catch up and probably got away from the run game. But this physical tough athletic fast football team that, like you said, Bortles he's playing for all the stuff he's been through. Yes, and all the joke. He's taking the criticism that he's taken over the last four or five years. This guy's playing lights out and the pats game plan was clearly did. Not change with the news for net was not going to play. They played the Jags as if for net was back there and they thought that was going to get thirty carries let right. They were jamming the box, almost the entire game, daring. Blake Bortles to beat them and the Jags pivoted intelligently. One other note for the patriots. You mentioned slow linebackers. Logan. Ryan can be had week one that d- line in the front looked very good. They were playing one of if not the worst offensive line in football in Houston. We do. They're playing a Jacksonville team that by the way during the game lost their left tackle, but they sell of Andrew norwell. They're big free agent acquisition that offense blinds on the strength of their team and Bortles was clean. The whole game New England could not even pretend to fabricate a pass, rush that now we're at least moderate concerns for New England offensively at all three levels. Can they get a pass rush? Do they have speed it linebacking core? And do they have a corner other than stuff on Gilmore that you actually believe in those are all things. Watch how many question. We've seen these guys in this predict the plate. Let's not write off the patch. No doubt. Always. Thanks so much for today. This morning coming up, how has Ryan Fitzpatrick keeping the magic alive? It's magic. It's neck. No first things. First. Welcome back to the eagles loss in a minute, but first Jaguars wide.

"They played good. You know, they make it tough on on our offense defense and you know, we can never string a place together. I coach, how did the patriots lose this game? Those gray win, obviously for Jacksonville. And I think first and foremost, they got off to a fast start. You know, they jump out to a twenty one, three lead at half the quarterback Bortles. We just talked about him. He played announced, ending football game, four touchdown passes. I think only one turn over three hundred seventy seven yard make great decisions. Got the ball spread around. He was phenomenal. The defense obviously did a great job holding gronk to catches fifteen yards, you know, and then you know, all the criticism that they took in the AFC championship game about getting conservative. You know, they kept the foot on on a gas and they stayed aggressive, and that's why they came away with twin. All credit in the world to the Jacksonville Jaguars who even though Vegas had this is a pick em game. Essentially I thought the pats were going to come in and remind everyone. We're the best team in the AFC Jacksonville, despite all the great story of last year was at ten win team in at the time a week division. I thought we going to be a resetting. Of who's who in the AFC and maybe wasn't resetting. But in the opposite direction that I expected that the Jags out patriot the patriots. The Jags did the score before half get the ball score right after half for a ten point swing. The Jags looked at the pats and said, what do you want to do? What do you do best? Oh, pass rob gronkowski. We are taking that away and seeing if you can beat us with your being see stuff and the patriots couldn't the Jags also most notably coach makes a great point learned from their mistakes. Last year against this team and said, if we lose, it's not going to be because we stopped being aggressive. They were aggressive up to an including up eleven with two and a half minutes left throwing the football as opposed to just playing the clock. Bortles played the best big game. I've ever seen him play keeling. Coal took the insult that he'd been getting league wider in media-wide as far as Jags got no number one receiver made the catch of the year and some huge plays. I. Cannot complement Jacksonville highly enough about how they played start to finish in this football game. I last week's conversation, Nick, you pointed out a couple of times during the press conference. You're like a Chris New England said, this is a big game. Do you? I was like, I'll take note of. And then on Thursday, Friday Brady said, it was a big game. Grunk said it was a big game. Brady said it was a big game. So this is not as if New England will surprise by Jacksonville, they know what's going on in divall county. They realized the personnel and they have a lot of respect for him and for them to do that after you know, New England had a great deal of focus on them to me, that's a credit to Jacksonville and something they should be able to move on going forward. But they're coaching staff being aggressive in their play. Cone, their ability to build a throw a ball on first down nineteen times on first down, they decided to throw almost sixty percent of the time and thirteen times Bortles because it's something have a game plan coach, but. Guys don't execute it. Blake was able to get them and get the ball to the to the offense of weapon to build a take advantage, two things about New England's defense that you should know Logan, Ryan, the corner he can be had their linebackers in man-to-man have never been good.

"It's it doesn't even feel like the three important, right? That's important. That's why you'd know it can be duplicated. It's pure NFL. Now they did have a couple touch passes. We're going to see on the speed sweep. I wouldn't say that part. That's that's a main part of pro football now, but that's the only thing that you can say like on that may be inflated numbers or they trick people know they're going to be able to do this. I mean, they remind me a lot of the ninety eight Vikings and the two thousand Vikings ninety eight. We know because Randall Cunningham and the record, but in two thousand Dante Culpepper took over after being a young quarterback light Mahomes and we put up some numbers like they're put putting. They reminded me of the ninety nine Rams as far as fat, like skill position guys everywhere. I mean you obviously the Vikings analogy is a great one, but I just and cream hunts not Marshall Faulk, but he's a guy who can catch out of the back. Is it Bruce and Torry Holt? I mean, we haven't even mentioned the name, Sammy Watkins. If Sammy Watkins is just a nice additional complementary piece. Giving that is. I mean, the defense is what did I said on? I said, gonna win the game. They're worth thirty eight points because I don't think they hold pits. We're going to thirty five. They spent forgot thirty seven and the chiefs won this football. We didn't even miss mentioned, kilson know who was dominant. He's a good player that says a lot. He not only played well, he beat a Steelers team where this franchise hadn't won there in so many years. So what that does for the confidence of a young player has to be huge. Go good. I was going to say on Pittsburgh for move on you. Got You got you. you. Gotta keep in mind. They gave up what forty two points the Jags in their playoff game. They now just gave a forty two to the chiefs. Those are both games in Pittsburgh. They have still not. They seemingly haven't recovered from the Shazia injury as far as that was good until Ryan shazier got hurt last year. The last five weeks last year it was bad. And the first couple of weeks this year. I know Cleveland only scored twenty one, but they, I mean, Pittsburgh's defense is a real concern. Joe Haden was out and that was the problem, a huge problem. I gotta take a break coming up to bogus call, costs the Packers win over the Vikings. That's next. This is the first things first. Back here. First things first, former NFL head coach, Chuck Pagano joins the show. Coach catava back came in, you went lot of football. To break down and discuss. Well, let's start with this one. Nothing says NFL football quite like a tie. We got one last week. We got one this week Vikings Packers. Yes, Aaron Rodgers played. Yes. This one was as good as advertised after questionable. Roughing. The passer called on clay Matthews, nullified Kirk cousins, interception with less than two minutes to go. Cousins found Stefan digs to force overtime. Now their team could score a bit of a heartbreak for the Vikings at least twenty nine, twenty nine. Was your final coach. Let's start with the Packers. How should they feel after this tight, especially when we weren't sure what we were gonna see from Aaron Rodgers. What a gritty performance. First of all by Aaron Rodgers coming out, didn't practice all week and speculation that he wasn't going to play, but gritty, gritty performance. I'm both teams are sitting there had plenty opportunities to win this game. You know Packers out ahead. You get the call twenty two point scored by the Vikings in the fourth quarter of great comeback. Unbelievable. Throwing catch to feeling point was was phenomenal. You know, they're both one on one. It's really early in the season. So from a standing standpoint and the division, a lot of football left, obviously we'll see, you know how it comes into play late as far as the Tigers we. Now, these teams won't be the tiebreaker won't come into play between them at the end of the year because one of them's going to win, we would imagine the game in Minnesota. And so that'll determine that if they finish with the same record, but it's where the Packers are. Men a-rod took a lot of punishment to not come away with the victory..

"It's all skew. It has nothing to do with the German. It's all skill. Randy read has put him in position even from a confidence standpoint because it's one thing to say guy has a big arm, but then how do I call the game? Got sixty plays sixty. Five plays. Do I doubt forty runs because that's what he said about McNab earliest. McNabb is talented, probably one of the most talented throes of ever had. But earlier in the game plans, they ran the ball forty times only letting throw a little bit based on how he's called and lets me know what confidence Andy Reid has them everyone. These highlight I can tell you a textbook reason why right here to hunt. It was a hot read, so he throws it over the linebacker. Gives him the one on one right here. Yes, the white sea outside leverage on the db. He's gotta throw it. Hi, right here has got the. Linebacker, breathe thought his back shoulder every throw. The key was make. He was textbook. Where do you want the football, Kelsey, going down the same guy here linebacker coming your thought back here in the middle of field. We hits Kelsey, low, going into Enzo all these things. No, that's not a German. No, that's not. You can see when he sees a guy open or he feels a guy's going to be open. He lets the ball go. So he has a great deal of confidence. I believe I told Nick this, he'll never play with type of personnel that he's playing with now and Andy Reid. I think this is the most talented team that he put even when they had McNabb and t, oh, they didn't have four or five other guys with the type of speed. This is a four by one track team, though everybody on the team. If you look at spark scores at the combine that basically just pure athleticism. That's the draft him for five years. Chris Conley their number three receiver go look at his vertical leap. Go look at his sparks score yesterday. Pittsburgh tried to. We're not going to punt tyreek hill where frayed of his speed Danta Thomas is the upback of a track star at Oregon? Yeah, art is. We attract start Oregon, he he gets the ball there and he takes it fifty yards to open the game not to the end zone, but the red zone. I listen that Pat will Pat Mahomes make mistakes. Of course he will, but take the young quarterback out of it. How many quarterbacks have ever had more than ten touchdowns in the first two games, nobody. He, he just passed Peyton Manning's record. Payton had nine in the first two weeks, but that was the your Payton had seven in week one. It's up to start. They the chiefs for years ago when all season long without a touchdown pass to wide receiver that happened. And that wasn't terrible. They dinks Dunxin Travis Kelsey, and they already afforded from wide receivers touchdown passes. They got seven guys that have caught touchdown passes. I know we talk a lot about will will deepen to catch up to young quarterbacks. What Chris pointed out. They'll be a regression, I'm sure, but it's hard to catch up to perfectly thrown perfectly. Timed sharp. Passes that as you were talking about, they don't. They don't say no. I mean, he's throwing them on a line this he, I don't know if it's the year of watching. Andy Reid deserve a lot of credit, the skill position guys, but Pat Mahomes as in his third career start, she started week seventeen. Last year looks as sharp and not gimmicks..

"One other note from this game, Josh Rosen might be the next rookie quarterback to get a start soon. Sam, Bradford looks he. He looked bad as you can look and NFL game yesterday and their their season since we get away from all ready. So my guess is this week we'll talk about Josh Rosen starting soon stressed about last year's bone. Same night taking south, hey, let's talk chief since Steelers. Kansas City was looking for the first one in Pittsburgh in thirty years. Patrick Mahomes was going to need to play a near perfect game in order for that to happen. And he did six touchdown passes. He's now got ten in two games that's an NFL record as the chiefs beat. The Steelers on the road Mahomes throwing more touchdown passes than incompletions yesterday, not bad for a quarterback in his. Third NFL start here is after the game, you never expected to have ten touchdowns at this point in the season, but I knew what this offense and the weapons that we had in the scheme coach ridge drawing up that we had a chance to be really, really good and that the possibilities are. I mean, they're endless. I mean, we could really come out every single we can do then score points. It's all about me getting the ball into those playmakers hands and you saw today, they're breaking tackles and scoring points. Cici talked me a little about Patrick Mahomes how much of it was the adrenaline and being there and playing the Steelers and how much of it was, hey, he's a really good guy who's gonna make some stakes just hasn't made that many in the first two week skew. It has nothing to do with the German. It's all skill. Randy read has put him in position even from a confidence standpoint because it's one thing to say guy has a big arm, but then how do I call the game? Got sixty plays sixty. Five plays. Do I doubt forty runs because that's what he said about McNab earliest McNabb is talented, probably one of the most talented throws of ever had. But earlier in the game plans, they ran the ball forty times only letting throw a little bit based on how he's called and lets me know what confidence Andy Reid has them everyone. These highlight I can tell you a textbook reason why right here to hunt. It was a hot read, so he throws it over linebacker. Gives him the one on one right here. Yes. The white sea outside leverage on the db. He's gotta throw it. Hi, right here has got the. Linebacker, breathe thought his back shoulder every throw. The key was make. He was textbook. Where do you want the football, Kelsey, going down the same guy here linebacker coming your thought back here in the middle of field. We hits Kelsey, low, going into Enzo all these things. No, that's not a German. No, that's not. You can see when he sees a guy open or he feels a guy's going to be open. He lets the ball go. So he has a great deal of confidence. I believe I told Nick this. He'll never play with type of personnel that he's playing with now and Andy Reid. I think this is the most talented team that he put even when they had McNabb and t, oh, they didn't have four or five other guys with the type of speed. This is a four by one track team, though everybody on the team. If you look at sparked scores at the combine that basically just pure athleticism. That's who the chiefs draft him for five years. Chris Conley, their number three receiver go look at his vertical leap. Go look at his sparks core yesterday. Pittsburgh tried to. We're not going to punt tyreek hill where frayed of his speed Danta Thomas is the upback of a track star at Oregon? Yeah, art is..

"You can't turn the ball over and you have to build to make big plays. The Rams are who we thought they were going to be there. An exciting football team. Their quarterback is getting better. They can throw ball, they can run it. They got a good offensive line. Their one weakness is just perimeter pass rushes. They don't have an elite pass rusher. They got good players, but just not great ones. They got great ones on the inside, but can they get a constant pass rush from the outside? That's the only question Mark that I see on this team is in the second game. Jared Goff has looked. Like year to Jared Goff, and I've been saying if he plays at that level, yeah. Is the best team in the NFL like they have they the aside from that exterior pass rusher to good point by CC, but they have. I mean, they have a plus players at so many. They have an A-plus running back in a wide receiver and cokes good complementary receivers and Cooper Cup and Robert woods. They have an a, an a minus corner and Peter's and a keep to leave an a plus linemen in Aaron Donald. Andrew, Whitworth was an all pro last year. That's their left tackle like you and I think excellent schematic advantages wage, Wade Phillips on defense and Sean McVay on offense that you would think that someone couldn't match Sean McVay because what he's doing offense, I believe he's really, really special people are giving him a lot of tension, everything for his memory, but you memories no good. If you don't have the type of talent that you can orchestrate the way he's doing the play action, pass the creativity in Brandon. Cook added to this offense. It's amazing how much better he is than mentioned and Sammy Watkins all and how they're taking advantage of where he wasn't New England as if McVay talked to Josh mcdaniels and said, I'm going to pick up right where he when he was starting to get hot. If he doesn't get knocked out of the Super Bowl, I believe New England wins in the way he played the last eight games of the season pick right up there in Los Angeles there with the Rams. What was the only question Mark about this Rams team was how their worst now is we're gonna mashing if they were able to, if Wade Phillips can control everybody and so far it's been quiet. Infinite listen, if they're winning, that's not going to be a problem at all. Like guardless we haven't heard any rumblings or anything from giving me the most talented players. People talk about what about locker room? Chemistry me. Give me good. We'll work it out. You think that chiefs talk about what would want more because Peter's back giving what their defense looking like in by the way. One other note from this game, Josh Rosen might be the next rookie quarterback to get a start soon. Sam, Bradford looks. He looked. As bad as you can look and NFL game yesterday and their their season since we get away from ready. So my guess is this, we'll talk about Josh Rosen starting sentenced stressed about last year's bone same night taking, hey, let's talk chiefs and Steelers. Kansas City was looking for the first one in Pittsburgh in thirty years. Patrick Mahomes was going to need to play a near perfect game in order for that to happen. And he did six touchdown passes. He's now got ten in two games that's an NFL record as the chiefs beat. The Steelers on the road Mahomes throwing more touchdown passes than incompletions yesterday, not bad for a quarterback in his third NFL start here is after the game, never expected to have ten touchdowns this point in the season, but I knew what this offense and the weapons that we had in the scheme. Coach read drawing that we had a chance to be really, really good and that the possibilities are endless. I mean, we could really come out every single we can score points. It's all about me getting the ball into those playmakers hands. And you saw. Today, they're breaking tackles and scoring points. Cici talked me a little about Patrick Mahomes how much of it was the adrenaline and being there and playing the Steelers and how much of it was, hey, he's a really good guy who's gonna make some stakes just hasn't made that many in the first two week..

"Ivanka security guard don't walk him to his core three quarters, eight Peterman three-quarters, Nate Allen. He said, I'm dumbing football for advert. Sam darnold came back down to earth and week two. That's where the rest of us live darnold threw for three engined thirty four yards. A touchdown and two picks including one in the end zone in a loss to the Miami Dolphins. Snick your thoughts on darnold and week to get used to this part of his game jets fans. It was excellent week. One came back from the turnover, but a guy who had twenty plus turnovers. His last year USC is not going to magically fix that. His first year in the NFL especially starting from game one eight. This doesn't shake my faith that he can be a high level quarterback in this league. But this you're gonna have days like this darnold turnovers cost to your best chance to win. It doesn't kill my confidence in. You're gonna have plenty of days like this. Also. We might look back in November and December and be like the Miami Dolphins are better football team tonight. Expect it. I called her game last week against the titans. I believe they're one of those four or five teams. It will be much improving two thousand eighteen. So. Combination of rookie going against the team, I believe to be improved. I'm moving on. Andrew luck on his first. One of the season threw for two touchdowns and two picks at twenty one to nine win over Washington. See, what did you make of Andrew locks performance this? What we want to see? We don't see Andrew out there. You can't throw. The two picks. One got bad at everything because they're not just going to be able to overcome it, but he's going to be one of the best quarterbacks that we have in the league. He's still got some rust, so I wouldn't be surprised if he just struggled a little bit early, but winning getting your team on the winning bus last week came up a little bit. Short, going against Cincinnati was able to get doesn't big win for him. He's been out of football, right? Big win for him into big win for the colts. Also that Washington, we made their week. One dominating win against Zona more about them. After you see Arizona, it looks like maybe that was more about Arizona's being Washington. Adrian, Adrian Peterson, I think you had eleven carries for twenty one yards. That's that's prising but luck. I'm glad he got through another game healthy. The picks. Were bad, but they won by double digits, brutal brutal loss for the Browns. Zane Gonzales, miss two extra points and two field goals, including one to tie it at the end regulation. The Browns are now winless in nineteen straight games. Sorry, Hugh Nick hats off a loss is this. I mean, only the Browns could get a four and five down six forty, five yard touchdown, strike with a minute left and losing regulation. That seems like a riddle. And they, I mean, they had chance after chance I felt. I mean, Zane Gonzalez's is I mean, he'll get cut, I assume today and I don't know who's going to pick them up. I felt terribly for the guy, but that's what happens. They had every opportunity beat New Orleans and couldn't make it form. I was feeling people lose their job man, especially guys that I don't think are going to get that job back. I always feel badly. I understand your feelings or your problem. That's Chris Carter motto. I have a little more empathy, but I've also never lost retired. He's retired. After the game, give them a right back to Cleveland and, and that's it. He's got at one job. That's the king. Forget about the the field goals. What about the extra point? You extra? Did they open up the dome New Orleans? No, no, they didn't indoors. No, he he's, he's done. He's got to. You got to get rid of them. Look at their Saturday. They cut their white receiver, Josh Gordon before they get on the plane. The team was shocked by this..

"What they did do, which Houston was not able to do the week four into the patriots is saying. To the pats, we will not let gronk beat us again. It's kind of the patriots thing. What do you do best? We want to take it away. We won't let grunk beat us. Let see what Jacob Hollister can do. Let see what James white can do. Let's see. Philip door set can do and the Texans couldn't do it the week before gronk dominated that game for the patriots and lead them to the victory this week without gronk you all of a sudden saw pets team. This is where they're missing out on. This is where they miss Brandin cooks. This is where maybe they missed Dion Lewis. And I brought up the Texans game couple times just because we talked after week one. We don't know what week, one games who they mean more about. Do they mean more about the one that team that lost after saw how Houston played this week against a Blaine gabbert led titans team. You start even to look at the patriots in week one and that victory little bit differently. And you see the Jags who really both sides of the ball had an excellent game plan and execute it as well as you could have hoped for them. Nick mentioned the water savers is there anything that's stuck out for you that actually concerns you about this patriots team after what you saw? Or was this just a loss and they move on from it? It's just a law shift to spread it around the Jags Ray would take advantage of the offense of line. You know, they were not dominant. If you look at running the ball, the patriots long game was fifteen yards passing the ball, long game. Twenty nine yards. So we can sit there and blame it on the wide receivers, but we don't expect them to be spectacular. No, that's who Tom Brady has. That's the people. Now we give them credit when they do well against Texans oldish spread the ball out. Philip Dorsett had a career high end catches, no, this is who they are. They miss adamant because with gronk being limited and they didn't get the ball to the running backs out of the backfield as much. But you have to give Jacksonville credit. They outside why receivers for New England. We're not a threat against the Jags d and the while. It doesn't show up in the box score because the Jags I think just had a couple of sacks and three other quarterback hurries to Chris's point about the offense of line that those numbers are where they are because Brady so good at getting it out quickly. But he was under duress. They were collapsing the pocket quickly. And so some of those offense of line questions we had for the pats coming into the season. They're great, offensive line coach, Dante scar Nekia. Notwithstanding those you started to see, okay. That's why there was a level of concern at their left tackle position. That's why there was a level of concern. Now, most teams don't have Jacksonville's front and clay Campbell out their dominating people, but you saw a lot of the things that we were like about the patriots rear their head in this this week. Now, with that said, they get Detroit Miami and then that'll men's back. So at least on the receiving core, some of it will be better couple of weeks from now. The Jacksonville Jaguars are to know as they beat the patriots in week two. We'll talk much more about that coming up. But on the other side, how was Dak Prescott able to right the ship with a win over the New York Giants. Next on first things. First. We're going to get to Dak in the Cowboys in a minute, but first Jaguars rider Seaver Keelan Cole makes an unbelievable one handed cats watch it again. I mean this rampant in the NFL see that is the best one of the year. Yeah, that's the that's the best one of the year. I mean, that's OB j. going down the sideline LBJ's. Now the ball's traveling furthest velocity. The ball is harder, but that was nice and then went on to have a great game. Absolutely. I mean, I laughed at the idea that he could be your number one receiver. He looked like it yesterday. Credit to him. I- Vikings Packers. Kirk cousins to Adam. Phelan twenty two yards look at.

"And then that continued in the second half with radiant opportunity to get the ball back. You could see the Jags continue on first down trust. Their quarterback compared to trying to protect their quarterback. There's a lot of, you know, other subplots in the game, but for me in moving forward, that would have to be the biggest thing Jacksonville and having confidence in their quarterback and him distributing the ball and guys making place the Jags out. Patriot the patriots in this game. What you talk about right before halftime. What's been the staple of the Bella check era pets score before the half get the ball back score after half that is exactly what Jacksonville did to reel off ten straight points. Blake Bortles the stat CC mentioned are unbelievable. I mean, to average nearly eight yards per play on first down, not gonna lose a lot of football games that way. Yes, they stayed aggressive even in the waning moments up, eleven with less than three minutes remaining a lot. I would not have criticized them at all, and that's about if they said, run run, run, punt. Yeah, we're up to SCO. Here's Bill booth. Right if you're stores to, that's what you got your playing the clock at that point. And even then they said, we trust you, Blake, we're not going to lose this game the way we lost the AFC championship game because we only trust in you for a half. I'm we're not even gonna lose it because we only trust your for three and a half quarters. Bortles was the story of the game because the pats clear game plan was see, see what he can do and what he did was to me. I don't think it's over the top to call it. It's the best football game given the opponent. I've seen Blake Bortles play as a pro and people need to adjust their is to recognize what they saw yesterday. The patch were down double digits after the first quarter and never got it within single digits from that point forward that tap into Tom Brady three times in his career over for against the Steelers, low nine against the ravens and yesterday against the Jags. The reason I bring that up in that early two thousand part of the patriots era. That team that could give them trouble along with indie was the Steelers in the late two thousand offs. It was the ravens. And now the Jags the only three teams to get a double digit lead on Brady and keep it the whole game there. Now on that list, it was a dominant performance from Jack team that I thought was going to be outclassed on Sunday. Clearly the outcome surprised a lot of people. The other thing that I think surprised people was was rob gronkowski and what he wasn't able to yesterday. I think he finished her that fifteen yards or something. We talked all week about whether it was gonna be Jalen Ramsey rob gronkowski matchup, whether he'd be able to slow or even stop him. How are they able to contain grant was I had a good game plan. I think that the defensive staff of the Jags didn't get called up in the who Jalen is what he got called up in this, who are we as Jags defend because they don't go out there and talk trash. They don't go out there and say a whole bunch of stuff. They don't get personal foul. They just have one player that Jalen in the. Article, and I guess he's trying to raise his profile. So that's what we might see moving forward. He said, we're gonna play to our strength. We don't play a lot of the man to man coverage. We're going to send a lot of people at gronk, but we're not going to go out of our way in have Jalen travel with him so they can potentially pick him wearing a concentrate on the whole offense. And we're going to slow him down. But ultimately we're going to put pressure on Brady if he's not going to have a whole bunch of time to build a sit back there to build a pick it apart. So I thought the staff of Jacksonville, offensively and defensively, they put this team, which is a very, very good roster in a position where they could be successful in their game plan. And while they didn't allow it to become Ramsey v gronk hardly at all, not even in the red zone like Bart, Scott talked about. They might. I mean, they really played a true game plan apps and of the egos to it..

"Touchdowns. If main pick field goals their games a lot tighter. Sixteen thirteen nineteen hundred whatever whatever it would equal it out to and that's a game that we can find ourselves stealing at the end. And maybe we'll go down and have a shot to win the game. So that's the biggest thing that we need to work on moving forward yards. Many don't matters really kick keeping teams out of the end zone. Lorenzo alexander. I like that point minyard's matter. But I like what he's saying there if the field goals if the touchdowns have been field goals work. That's. Put another way. That's what wins for us. You can have twice the scoring drives. But if I get seven, and you get threes, I win which is one reason why I think teams kick far too often in this in this league. But LA had no trouble, finishing drives me. Melvin gordon. Took could've taken a nap on two of his touchdowns on the way in like the first one when do you see a twenty yard run where once he gets to two bills defenders are just swallowed up at point of point of impact, the line of scrimmage, and once Gordon makes it through their which isn't too tough. Just nothing left. Right. So. Yeah. Right. If if those are not touchdown drives. I mean, I don't know if they the one the one he caught his third touchdown for twenty eight three. I believe was a third down pass. I don't know that the others were even on third down. So it was pretty easy. Yeah. Yeah. They have. They did not have a hard time. Really at all this chargers team a good offensive team. But but nothing I mean, the bills got trampled in the first half of this game credit to them. They played a good third quarter. And if the bills had been able mountain much of anything on offense beyond their first possession of the second half. Then you know this. This may have been. We get more of a game. But they couldn't. And so there we are Mike show in the bulldog here on the post game show thirty one twenty chargers bills now Owen to we bought a really be fans. Like here me seriously, like we should all be bracing for this. I think I kind of was to an extent because I want it to be about Allen. And I'm not worried about the results. And I even if I was expecting them to be the worst team in the league, I was expecting him to be a contender for a playoff spot. Like they were last year. But I mean, it's it's gonna be it's gonna be a tough year, man. It's gonna be a tough year. If they don't get it together on defense. It's going to be ugly. They are bad over there. One guy quit in the middle of the game with the sport. In the middle of game left. I'm done. I I don't know man, we've been debating some how good was Josh Allen. I was impressed. Ryan Fitzpatrick was good today in his game. Again, Tampa wins it New Orleans forty eight forty last week today beats Philadelphia twenty seven twenty one. So just so we're caught up rivers. Three touchdown passes. Four incompletions Mahomes for Kansas City five incompletions six touchdown passes. Neither had an interception. Fitzpatrick. Five incompletions one interception. Four touchdowns four hundred two yards against the eagles. And he had four touchdown passes last week. Yes. So good right now in this league is really good. Yeah. Those those are astonishing numbers. Yeah. I just I don't know. I I guess I'm trying to I'm saying I want you to hear me say the bars really low the bar is really embarrassingly low here. And again, like sure we should have met our eyes wide open a known. It was coming. The idea of this team being the worst team. The league is a very real idea to me sitting here right now. And these people have been running it for two years. Well, it's year to year two. The guy they judged as an upgrade. At corner. Quit the sport at halftime. Was inactive in week one. Gave him some gear this week, and he quit. That's not good. It's not a good job. Good job of evaluating. Selecting and character and all I quit. That's a joke. Bills are gonna get made fun of for a variety of reasons. Nathan Peterman is at the top of that list. Now picking Josh Allen. Is there the Hannah guy quit at halftime? I don't know. I probably that's happened at some other point in the NFL at least been around a long time. And it's a violent physically challenging I've been trying to think of an example from memory, and it's not I don't a lot about it. It's not really just right, but Dwayne Thomas remember, Duane Thomas. This is a long time ago. He was running back for Dallas. And he was good in a Super Bowl Super Bowl sex. But he was all he was always very difficult or seen is very difficult. And then he eventually just sort of. He was so irritated by so many things like it just didn't work out. He went to the chargers toward the end of his career. There was a shot of him. Like, he was so anti EU. So counter what the team was about on more than one team. But you have everybody on the field for warm-ups on the chargers as might have been like seventy three or something doing calisthenics. And he's way down at the other end by himself to stand in there. Like that is some guy that's a guy on a list like this. I don't know if he eventually quit or anything Hollywood ended for him. But I mean, I don't know of examples really of guys doing that. And I don't have Davis explaining himself. I don't sort of reluctant to blast off without hearing from him. But I mean, I feel like it's the kind of thing that football players would not respect. And that is how Lorenzo Alexander talked after this game apparently. Let's go to the phones. Again, here is David next. Hello, david. Hi, guys. I think the thing that I'm most discourage about right now is I thought that ownership and finally gotten there right with hiring the right GM and coach, but I'm starting to question. Their ability to judge Taylor. Let me look on all the dead cap money. We have in guys that they brought in here. And then let go Corey Coleman. AJ mccarron. I know they didn't draft Madonna's Washington. But you know, there's like how many players that they just cutting and dead cap money. And even guys they brought in here paying big money to like starla Tula lay. And they brought an injured Trent Murphy they brought in an injured. Monty davis. These guys are contributing nothing and they're eating up like how many tens of millions of dollars of candidates. I I don't I I don't understand. I guess I don't understand what they're doing. Yeah. Well, Jeremy curly's name should come up once. He was cut yesterday. And McDermott said they needed another defensive tackle. Because it was going to be hot. It was hot out. Yeah. I mean, I. I'm. That move. You got me bills. I don't I don't know what you're trying to do there. I don't I don't I don't know. I'm. Befuddled. I am I am. I'm I'm just I can't believe guy quit. The sport at halftime was bad f-. If you're going to do that. Yeah. He made a nice tackle on a play that stopped a charger running back from getting a first down. Well, they want to go out on top athletes. He did he made a nice play. He went out on top. It had to be in the first half. Right. Because he quitted had on on the field was in the first half that that happened. I'm sure of it now. Because he quit playing the sport at halftime. Wow. Let's go to Bill next. I Bill hold on a second. Please sorry about that. Bill now already. Oh, good. Hi, earlier caller in the question of your drinking. I think well, you must have been. Okay. Thanks. Yeah. We thought Josh Allen. I thought Josh Allen was impressive. I'm not speaking for you. So again, the lesson is when someone disagrees with you. They are probably under the influence or there must be some explanation for how they could not think the way you do. That's kind of how it is. So yeah. There does. Thank you Bill. Thanks for calling in holding on Pete is next. Although Pete, hey, good afternoon guys. I agree. Josh Allen was what's impressive today considering his first start one number of it? I haven't heard a lot of people talk about his time of possession. You know last week. We I think the ravens were plus pan on us today. The chargers might have been plus seven. So there's a marginal improvement there. But I'm not gonna mention it because I don't care about it. Okay. Well, another call earlier talked about playing small ball, you know, and and just holding onto the ball because you know, we're giving some of the best quarterbacks in the league, you know, another two possibly three possessions. And if we can start bringing that back little, hey, I don't think a few minutes of time of possession either last week or this week we would have won. But if the best thing we can do for our defense right now is probably just keep them off the field. Well, that means you're good. If you're able to do that. So it would just take. Care of itself. But I don't care about time possession. I care about points. I don't care how long it takes me to score yesterday was very hot. And you know, players are going to talk about like more like you're talking here. How it's all good to do that. But whatever they can make that point. Don't assume they're drunk if they make it I'm assuming that about you or anything of the sort. I just you know, whatever good players like the nineties bills. Right. I don't know. Did they win time of possession? They scored in a hurry. And they beat a lot of people. That's good enough for me. I would take that. I would definitely take that. Yeah. All right. Here's Pete next. Thanks, fellas. Great show as just one ask you the bottom line question. Do we have the infrastructure the coaching the intelligence here to rebuild the team from the bottom? I'm looking at them at my home trade, and you know, it's just frightening. Thank you passed on this kid. They were put down. It's like, it's a steal. We've got you know, look at this. We got a first round pick. It's great next year and everything look where we are just comparative to Mahomes to the quarterback in the rest of the team like better trade McCoy in a tight and trade these guys up now and get something for him. 'cause we're going to end up last last, thanks Ellis. I'm gonna listen to you. I mean infrastructure is a is a is an interesting way to put that Mahomes has the benefit of having his point of entry into the league be on a team that is absolutely loaded with skill position players. I mean, they are stacked. So that's a that's a much cushier gig. You know, but six touchdowns with six touchdowns. I mean, I look I'm there I want I want I wanted to pick him. But while I know. And Furthermore, I don't know how that'd be going. If he if he were their quarterback today playing here he wanted throwing six touchdowns. Watkins and Kelsey and tyreek hill and the whatever else running around the field. Team is loaded with talent. Yeah. I mean, I'll I'll say here is that I liked the it's not the Mahomes street. I don't want to call it that you can I like the trade last year for the bells I thought it was actually Hetty and a good sign for the franchise. Sean McDermott was brand new he hadn't coached a game. There was no GM except for Doug Whaley who was halfway out the door and they traded down in the best player on the team. Arguably or one of them is the player they got seventeen picks later. And you know, they kept tyrod Taylor on the team who was pretty decent. And this. This was something that I liked and they got a first round pick out of it. I'm not big on trading up over and over like the bills have pretty much done since. I don't think that's how it all. And that's I think the overall on this is that they were not setting out in a new direction. They just they wanted. They took that opportunity. And you cannot argue philosophically there about that. So I like that at that moment. Nobody knows about these quarterbacks. It's running talent is a huge point. I think it's seeing the least that Mahomes or any of these guys would struggle more here. This is probably the most struggling location in the league for these quarterbacks at this point, which you know, that's like this is kind of how we're talking today is also it's all on them. Well, that's on them to be the only. Piece. I want to fold into this analysis is if they had done that. Yes. They would not have accumulated extra stuff and would not have Davis white..
