Fresh update on "washington football team" discussed on All Things Considered
"This is all things considered from NPR news I'm Michelle Martin The Las Vegas Raiders play their first game today since their former coach John Gruden resigned last week The resignation coming hours after reports of his use of slurs and derogatory language in emails to NFL executives came to light About those emails they came to light because of an NFL investigation into the workplace environment of the Washington football team which is facing allegations that it fostered a degrading and hostile work environment especially towards women for years And while the investigation concluded this past July only emails related to Gruden had been made public The NFL has said it does not plan to release additional records from the investigation but some people say more documents need to be released one of the people saying that is Lisa banks she is an attorney who is representing more than 40 former employees of the Washington football team and she's with us now to tell us more Welcome Thank you so much for joining us Thank you Michelle You represent more than 40 former employees of the Washington football team as part of the documents that were released there are email exchanges between Gruden and former Washington football team president Bruce Allen that featured photos of topless women including the team's cheerleaders and I was wondering if you've spoken with any of your clients since the story broke and if you can share any of what their feelings are about all this I represent as you said 40 clients not all of whom are cheerleaders but all of my clients are really devastated by the allegations about the content of these emails and the idea that there could be more Why do you want more emails to be released What information do you think that they might have that would be relevant It's not even just the emails There are findings to this investigation It went on for ten months or more They interviewed a 120 people They looked at as we know over 600,000 documents And my clients participated with the understanding that there would be some transparency and some accountability at the end of this They would understand what the findings were And what steps were being taken as a result And the problem is we haven't seen anything We haven't heard anything There hasn't been any information communicated to us We haven't seen the findings We have not seen a report as we have in most other NFL investigations So effectively this whole thing was swept under the rug and my clients feel like they were they were duped The Washington football team was fined $10 million The team owner Dan Snyder says says he gave up daily operations Does that indicate any accountability to you And if not what would It doesn't necessarily show any accountability in that we don't know the depth of the problems in the organization because we haven't seen the findings And so we can't know whether the fine and Dan Snyder giving up day to today operation is commensurate with the harm in the allegations because we don't know the full extent of it So no I don't think there has been accountability And what would be that accountability really would depend on what are the findings You know I know a lot of the allegations that were brought forward And I know that this harassment and abuse and misogyny existed throughout the organization from the top down over the period of 20 years So what is proper accountability for that Opinions will vary But it certainly isn't a slap on the wrist and putting your wife in charge Some people will look at these emails differently You'll remember that when the former president as a candidate for the presidency was overheard talking about grabbing women by their genitals it was dismissed by some as locker room talk which many people certainly find offensive but others don't And many would say this doesn't rise to the level of a crime But it does speak to a culture right So given your background and employment law how do you change a culture I mean can you just give us a way to think about that I mean first thing I'll say is this situation is about more than emails In fact it has very little to do with emails The allegations that I'm aware of are allegations of sexual harassment abuse assault not just inappropriate emails So it runs the gamut And as with any organization or any company the culture and the tone is set at the top And if you have the top levels of the organization harboring a view that is racist or sexist It's going to filter down through the organization And so the best way to change that culture is to change the tone at the top And sometimes that necessitates changing who sits at the top That is attorney Lisa banks she represents more than 40 former employees of the Washington football team Lisa banks thank you so much for joining us Thank And finally today watching Little Mermaid with one daughter while a list guest party hard one floor above picking up another daughter from school in a brand new Rolls Royce only to have her deliver that classic line You're embarrassing me All of which was a far cry from the way he grew up squirreling away every penny and opportunity

Ron rivera and they're going to get much better quarterback play than they did from alex smith and dwayne haskins a year ago. I mean they won the division with arguably the worst quarterback playing division outside of carson wentz. I mean the division was a mess last year. I like washington number one. I think dallas is probably too and in the giants and the eagles are right there at three and four although honestly i think they all win maybe even eight or nine. It might mean that close yet again.

Cam Newton vs. Mac Jones: Where Patriots QB Competition Stands
"The other side. I it's a more interesting. Quarterback is a quarterback competition in new england. What is the sense. You get the dynamic between cam. Newton and mack jones. Yes quarterback competition. We can call it that cam. Newton is the starter plated limited amount of time against the washington football team. And then as you mentioned mack jones and it's very important not only to listen to what bill bella checks says but what he does and what he did was put back jones out there with the first team offensive line for a couple of plays at the end of his at the first half against the washington football team and then he had max jones run the two minute drill the no huddle offense and that he did with command and obviously precision and they were very impressed with that but right now what he wants to see what bill belichick wants to see and he said this the other day he to see the whole team but particularly the quarterback play faster react faster execute faster and what better way to do that than enjoying practices with the philadelphia eagles and then a preseason game on thursday night but yes there is a competition and we'll have to see how this goes in the next couple of weeks but my money is on cam. Newton starting the season and mack jones quickly getting up to speed and pushing cam newton for the starting job.
"washington football team" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Football
"Unbelievable catches obviously has tremendous speed as well like so. He's a deep threat like his route. Tree is ridiculous obviously. I'm a huge terry maclaurin fan. I am nine Which i think is highest certainly on our site and probably pretty high among other fantasy analysts as well. I don't know kyle notes right here. Ryan fitzpatrick bruce. Top fifteen wide receiver in each of the last three seasons that he started at least twelve games. I think it's more complicated though after tear. Maclaurin curtis samuel is a guy that we all really lighter. And they're free agent one of my favorite wide receivers that was available. He ended up signing a three year. Deal with thirty seven point. Five million dollars with the football team. He finished last year. Strong came down really strong down the stretch. When they do not have christian mccaffrey and carolina. They got courtesy. Amion more touch out of the backfield. He kept scoring which was good. But we've been waiting for this for like four years. Really i mean there was no mystery surrounding courtesy. He'll come out of ohio. Stadium was a second round. Pick who was used kind of at ohio state how he was down the stretch in carolina. One would hope that reuniting with scott turner who was previous offensive coordinator and carolina get a big advantage relative to most agencies. Who are still learning the playbook. We're voting though still in the kobe. Liskeard osama been limp. He's been hampered by both the kobe list and also i believe a hamstring injuries. Been bothering him recently. A couple things that have prevented him from being on the field. He'll be okay. It's still only august eleventh or whatever. It is longest august eleven. So there's plenty of time here. But what do you make of the players. They'll math like not the player we we like to play. That part is word. What do you make of the prospects. Fancy wise courtesy meal. I think he's going to be a better. Nfl player for washington. Then he is going to be a consistent. Accuracy force takes takes effort for him to be a great fantasy player from the offensive coordinator. Right like you gotta be targeting him somewhere between seven and ten plays for maybe seven to ten times per game or targeting him somewhere like six to eight times per game and getting three to five russia's a game right. I think there is a scenario where he is the fourth option on offense after maclaurin gibson and even logan tom interesting. Yeah so i mean. He's i think he's right there with with thomas. I think he's gonna listen. He is a big play in happen. Tons of speed and his versatility. So when i talked about antonio gibson as well. Like i think what you will see from washington's offense years you'll see a lot of motion you'll see a lot of Mismatches and a lot of a lot of creativity Like because you think about what they did in the off season right they already have maclaurin. They have gibson. They've logan thomas is fast for a tight end and then they they signed curtis samuel. They draft iam brown. Who will get to but like they have got speed out the wazoo. That's right they've got a zoo and they put all the into it and it got so much speed in that wazoo. That it's spilling out of it. Gotcha well to college. I appreciate killed. Kim i just have more just like can't ask that to matthew and rely on stream come on come on get me fired anyway but the point is out the wazoo and so i think samuel there are going to be a handful of games next year. In which case for sure explodes. He has a seventy five yard touchdown. Something like that trying to win. Those are gonna come. I think in review and far between i have mitt. I currently have met wide receiver. Thirty seven so he's a wide receiver four for me. I think there's you know there's certainly some upside there but Kyle asks on the note here. Which samuel do prefer curtis or deebo. Give me debo give me deebo as well. Because depot even if the collective air yards on his eight catches in a game is like literally ten yards has a much easier path. I think two eight catches and a game. Then curtis samuel. Does that offense in san francisco's designed to basically take their best players and put him in space. But i actually haven't wide receiver thirty eight courtesy meals so i am right there in the same territory as you as it pertains to the rankings. Logan thomas mathew you talked about him. An item on the adam schefter. Podcast you guys talked about logan thomas as a player that perhaps is getting deserves a little more attention and you guys also talked about how. Sometimes you got. Follow the money right. The team that recently extended logan thomas. I think it was twenty four million dollars over three years. Pretty good deal for a guy who again was a college quarterback this is an amazing run and basically as one year production in the nfl. So in twenty four million right. That was adams. Point on on his podcast. On the adam schefter podcasts. Shefty making the point. Follow the money you want to know how a player how a team feels about a player for the money. And they spent nice money on. Logan thomas who i think some people felt like at. He's just a guy you know. Some people also feel like like he was all they had last year. So bit of a fluke. I currently have tightened seven. That's where he's going in terms of his. Adp's going in the early ninth round. Two rows behind tj hopkinson daniels sense though. Don't you think so hopkinson higher than a much more prone for big plays then. Logan thomas's is not that the as you mentioned looking good athlete very good. But hawkins i think even a different callow and also when you think about it like logan. Tom's as part of collective. There's a lotta mouths hopkinson tj and then like the cast of the replacements is basically. What's going on in detroit. There's there's daniel. Tj hopkinson thing for those watching on the livestream. He's he's shaken that hair that unruly hair. But whenever you the name of tj hodkinson matthew. I don't expect me to do. I know you got to do that. But anyway i have hopkinson actually titan four so i'm higher than his adp. but listen. I guess my point here on. Logan thomas is not a fluke. Last year will continue to get targets. Here's a guy that got seventeen red zone targets that was tied for the fourth. Most among tight ends they like looking for when they get getting close ryan. Fitzpatrick is also somebody that likes to throw to the tight end. We expect this offense again to be in scoring position and more efficient than it was last year with fifty s quarterback. I think long thomas if you miss out on. The elite guys is a very viable starting tight. In this year fantasy. I think when when you're doing rankings and fantasy like the point is to put players. They deserve to be ranked. but sometimes we'd be volatility. Sometimes there's going to be small disagreements here there. Yesterday i realized with miles sanders. I feel the same way about logan. Thomas being like tight end seven. That's about where he should go it. Just like there's a thousand reasons why he should be tight end seven. I love reasons why he should be tied in two or three and they're not a lot of reasons. Why should we tight end. Fifteen right another body of evidence to say like. This guy deserves to be ranked. He's not gonna win a your league. I don't think they don't have that many disaster weeks for i think it could be a solid respectable tight end which is hard to find and fantasy hence he's tight end seven by the way. I don't know if you remember like last year we were talking to the preseason about logan thomas. I sort of call them last year at this time. I was just like you know. Two years ago i gave you. Aaron waller is asleep or tight end. I'm giving you this year. I'm giving you logan thomas so you've got this new this year a couple of guys like but the problem is is all the guys that i like like. A lot of people are on that okay. You know we'll as well for urban myth like if you wanna get deeper like i do love donald. Parham austin talking. Jared kushner donald parham. I'm obsessed with moe alley cox like you know. Whatever i you know me. I love my my my my Obscure titans you certainly do. We are going to pivot to the houston texans in just a moment but before we do. You want to get in shape. You're having trouble staying motivated.

"It feels to me though matthew late this is one of the players that is trending with an upward trajectory and just is bound for elite. I don't know i'm not. I'm not sure what you know what i'm trying to get. The high on him is significant. And i think is. Adp will continue to rise. You certainly going to rise in my ranks as well but the thing about antonio gibson is they came into. The pros would not a ton of experience as a runner. Change change position. I mean like they use them more as a wide receiver at memphis than they did at Than they did at running back i know last year. They put them in both rooms. He was in the wide receiver room running back and they just of wanna see what he could do. Over the course of the season he proved he could handle both roles adeptly. They had a nice pass catching running. Back and jd mckissick. They like jd. There but again as we talked about it was a dinking dunk offense. It was a conservative offense last year. I and they had a lot candidly. It took a while for their defense gel. And because their offense wasn't as good they often were sometimes trailing and they had to go into more of a hurry up offense. I think this offense with ryan fitzpatrick becomes a lot more efficient. They're scoring position more often than last year last year. But they're exactly. He scored a lot last year. But my point is that. I think that continues like i know they're like there's some talk about regression because he was so effective at the goal line but to me like he didn't get a ton of work like i think he's going to get an increased workload because now as we always talk about players make the biggest improvement from your one to year two. He's got a full off season. Knowing sort of he's the guy and defenses aren't going to be able to key on him they way they were they somewhat last year. Yeah he's super versatile. I think you'll see. I think you'll see antonio gibson. Curtis samuel both in the same backfield. I think you'll see antonio gibson lined up wide and courtesy me in the back. I think they're going to be very creative on offense much more creative than they were last year because the personnel they have. I'm in on antonio gibson in a big way. Had seven different games last year with fifteen or more touches averaged nineteen point six fantasy points per game. Three or more receptions in eight of his thirteen full games is a good pass catcher as well if he gets even thirty percent of jamie physics target share from last year. Like he's he's christian. Mccaffrey light. That's the thing. That's the huge part that to me is what unlocks a chance for him to go from where he is right. Now are be thirteen. In terms of the are b twelve in terms of edp to potentially knock on the door of rb. Eight or nine for the season is third down. Usage and passing game uses which tend to go hand in hand because it got eighty catches. Last night's five game right. I saw this ad on twitter. I apologize for not knowing who it was off. Taught my head right now. The number of third-down snaps that antonio gibson play last year was like twenty four right. It was like a large number of snaps on down which fantasy is money down between the number of passing opportunities. Really the number of passing these so if the the football team is more reliant on him on third down which sounds like a weird sort of thing to say. But it's the truth. Then the sky could be the ceiling to be raised here for so love the player to right. So if you're watching on the livestream you're seeing the graphic that's up now and last year. Jd mckissick had eighty receptions gibson. Only have thirty six. Like if jana mckissick has call it. Sixty five receptions this year which is still a significant number. You know like and you get fifty. Now you're now you're like fifty plus receptions for for antonio gibson plus with increased rushing. Jd in turn gives has a chance to be alvin. Kamara right but saying he will be this year. I certainly don't have ranked this way but if a year from now we're talking about him in the same breath as like alvin kamara and dalvin cook and and those top five guys that play all three downs and they can catch you. Know six seventy pounds a year. Pretty interesting. I put a pin in this kyle. Tax twenty one third down snaps last year for antonio gibson that was fewer than a mere abdulah. Andy vich amongst before because like i it just it. And maybe that was out. Andy janet which rookie year right. You don't wanna be putting too much on the plate of a guy who's literally learning a new position. So i get it. I just hope that the team football team is more willing to play month or down this one of the reasons they drafted him is because of his versatility. Remember ron rivera and scott. Turner came from carolina. We're obviously they made christian mccaffrey into what he is and so again. I'm not saying well. No no no. No but what. I'm saying has christian. Mccaffrey mama mama. Yeah no but in all seriousness. Chris mccaffrey was when he was drafted. I think he was drafted. Seventh overall There was a bit of a heads some people in the nfl community. Scratch their heads like really. Is he really starting running back in the nfl. He's more between or how do you use them. He's more of a gadget guy. They didn't see him as the true workhorse running back that he became in carolina. There was definitely some questions about him. Going that high to carolina out of the out of the nfl draft and so they were like no no. This guy can do everything. We're running in between the tackles. We're obviously gonna use them in space. We're gonna put them on third down. He's going to do everything and he did. He touched the ball ton. And so the versatility 'antonio gibson you know. They talked a lot about after they drafted him about how much he gibson reminded him. Reminded them of chris. Mccaffrey in the versatility there. So i'm just saying like chris antonio gibson's got a nice year. Really here we'll talk about his backfield counterpart in just a minute. We agree Strongly on antonio being a star but just before we get to that forger.

"There on double secret probation right so i'm just telling you all that like if you don't want to hear about the team that's going to win the super bowl like if you care about how this season is going to play out fast forward about twenty minutes right now for those of you that want to hear about the washington professional football team which will be super bowl champions this year i'm just saying matthew to gripe obviously okay good. Now here's your chance to hear about the future teams. Typo st matthews joking. But i will tell you this there in the conversation. I believe. They're in the conversation. Like what i would think odds on favor. They don't obviously. I think there are teams in the nfc. The buccaneers are better. I think the packers are better. I think there's other teams out there. But washington is gonna be good this year it'd be scrapped healthy scrappy. And there'd be better on offense and part of that is because they signed ryan fitzpatrick to a one year deal. This off season force comes from miami where he was for a few years and he was the starter and then he was the backup but he was like a closer in baseball right like he wouldn't start the game what he did on multiple occasions. Finish the game for miami well two occasions but still uncommon to see a team pull a quarterback at halftime or even earlier which i think was the case for the other time that he came in for two and what was really bizarre about last year. Matthew is that when ryan fitzpatrick got benched after seven games. Not only was miami at the time. Four and three right but since he was playing well. It was a good quarterback as was reflected by the fact that your professional football team signed him. This off season is an underrated right now. Fantasy quarterback asset he is. I mentioned that. I'm writing my love. Hate column right now. He's going to be a love interesting. Yeah he's going to be a love for me. Understand this ryan. Fitzpatrick obviously is not the sexiest name though we might be the sexiest beard secret squirrel. I don't think he is. I thought i was the sexiest. Why are you telling me that he might be the sexiest man. I'm obviously the one has the sexiest beard. Berry telling you because it's like diesels is the sexiest man alive when you. Oh that's right. I'm balding you're the sexiest balding man alive. I appreciate that very much. Here's the thing about ryan. Here's the thing about ryan fitzpatrick last year. Those seven starts averaged nineteen point. Nine fantasy points. Game would've been. Qb eleven on a per game basis last year. He's been good in fantasy for the last couple of years. He actually was productive with the jets as well. He is and i say this notice respect. He's a professional. Quarterback is the aaron rodgers. Josh allen is kyle merisi. One of these superstars. Tom brady to talk about another sort of dropback passer. No he's not those guys but he is an above average professional quarterback at this stage in his career. And i think because he's bounced around to so many teams you know in fitzpatrick and he's he has he is prone to turnovers. There's a sense of him in the fantasy community. That just like whatever he's a he's a bye week geise fillon guy he's just He's a journeyman. But my argument about ryan fitzpatrick is two fold. Number one is again. This guy that basically was a top twelve fantasy quarterback last year on a points per game basis and now in washington. He is going to play with. I would argue the best. The best skill players he's ever played with in his nfl career. Terry maclaurin curtis samuel logan thomas antonio gibson in the backfield. He pretty good offensive line. Name a team that he played with that had a better group of skilled players. I that's a better group. And he had a miami last year back in check where he was with the jets a few years ago. Because if i'm not mistaken he was marshall. I like those two by themselves. Pretty darn good players. They were pretty darn good players but at apex had proved more than maclaurin. Samuel have yet proven. I think chlorine could certainly be in that conversation soon. But i'm just saying like but you're right more importantly we shouldn't be over that the point is he's got good skill players. You've got good skill players around him and he's got a offense coordinator in scott turner. That's not afraid to be creative. That's not afraid to push the ball down the field last year. They were very conservative offense because they had to be quarterback. The quarterbacks were you know rule that you know whatever dwayne haskins and kyle allen and our new colleague. Alex smith like i mean like guys that that for a variety of reasons weren't super aggressive down the field that he had to be more conservative on offense. Here they can. They can go and be a little bit more aggressive. Do a lot more with fifty more mobile than it gets credit for multiple rushing touchdowns in two of the last three seasons or sorry in each of the last three seasons. Yeah good good athlete. Qb qb fifteen that. I'm sorry qb fourteen. That's and that's nowhere close to where he's going and adp. Yeah he's being undrafted. Eighty five percent of leaks. Yeah fits he's going to have a big year interesting. Yes you'd be comfortable assuming leaving your draft with ryan fitzpatrick as your starter. I'm qb fourteen so not in a ten team league. Obviously but but there's more than ten quarterbacks feel comfortable. If i can say this and i realized this is jack ass short-term thing but you're talking about if you were to take dak prescott early ryan fitzpatrick is the perfect guy. The you could wait for towards the end of the draft to make sure that you have somebody that can start if anything does happen to example good example of a quarterback that could be there and around. Let's say thirteen fourteen fifteen or sixteen. Yep we need a new term. It's not breakout because people always push back when you name. Someone breakout candidate when the players already done some good things the pro level. But i don't want to just say he's going to improve. But antonio gibson feels like one of those players that falls into the category that i can't find the perfect name for because he was really good last year rb thirteen on the season. Rb sixteen points per game of fourteen point four. He had eleven touchdowns last year. Only one hundred seventy carries.

"Let's see how the rookie were you know who probably nakas chasing chasing breaks up one and half his pinky. Bu- plays very much hilarious. Though that like the. I don't i'm not this is not to cast blame. I'm simply stating facts. I think are funny. Is that like the second. The jaguars submitted their pick for trevor lawrence. This year their entire website became a sanctuary of like trevor lawrence. Jerseys course meanwhile like the patriots wanting to give jones jersey number to buy a jersey from right. What happens and you've got twenty years of success and you don't need you don't need to profit off of jersey sales you need to worry about a player fitting in which bill bell check is doing with mack. Jones he has always done this with this rookie. That such a good question. Who do you think the most popular. And i don't know the answer to this. I'm sure we could find out from From friends of fanatics. But i wonder if there is. Who do you think the most popular patriots jersey number. You know it was brady obviously for years and years but like this year. Who's going to be the number one patriots jersey seller probably mack jones. Or what camp cam hammet still and everyone about camera this stage of and we're going talk about football and five seconds but gam is an incredibly popular player internally fan so candidate a lot for the game continues to do a lot for the game. Let's get to the news though because a player who plays the same position this camp dak prescott weird. This was just sort of awkward last night. So little after eight o'clock last night. The cowboys tweeted the following from their official account. It's not a setback. And it's not a reason to worry but quarterback dak prescott is planning another mri so he's getting a second mri on the same throwing shoulder that had caused him to miss. Basically two full weeks of practice matthew and so the incredible todd archer is an amazing job. Cover the cowboys. And i consider him thirty in all things. Dallas josko like. I know there's the cynicism out there but you tell me if you think this team has really worried that being said it was one of the way that it was presented sort of basically told you like there's no reason to worry but go ahead and tell us how worried are you worried about that prescott. I don't know how you can't raise their eyebrows a little bit like you. Don't get a second on mariah. Everything feels great right now. I don't think so. I mean like you know like i feel one hundred percent healthy but let's get a number. I just for s be honest. Probably a good idea. You look guy that probably should be doing that more often at this stage of my career. Everything hurts yes you know. Let's let's be honest there. But like if i'm an. Nfl quarterback coming off a loss season where he spent most of it injured obviously with nothing that had to do with his arm. But yeah obviously that's cause for concern. I mean again. Is it a two on the panic meter or as an eight. I don't know if tonight is there a like. Are you avoiding him and his current price. No no probably not. I mean it was probably because you can still back in round lane. Take trevor lawrence or or whatever quarterback is going around fifteen baker mayfield and figure it out if you want to use it as a tiebreaker. Because he's his current. Eighty p dax current. Adp is like going in the in the russell. Wilson i think cuyler murray range is basically right there like that sort of that. Four or five four five six range lamar jackson. Maybe more lamar jackson. I think actual is going three. And then i think it's on espn. And then. i think it's you know. It's it's some version of of dak. Lamar jackson russell wilson right and so if you wanna use it. It's tiebreaker in. Like take russell wilson who. I don't think is maybe he's missed one. Nfl game in his career. Stuff like that. Okay russell. i've ever michigan. Russ's never missed a game for some reason. I thought he missed one exactly. But you know what i mean. Whatever russell gets there with a leg brace. He's out there a wheelchair like he'll do whatever like russia's doesn't miss games Yeah i don't mind you using it as a tiebreaker. But it's interesting field because we are doing our quarterback show the show that daniel either doing after this one on the fantasy shown. Espn plus. We're doing our quarterback show. And i literally got an email thirty seconds before we went air from my producer. Saying are you still comfortable. Dak prescott is cube three. Because that's where i have. Yeah so the answer is as of now until we get more information yes. He is still my quarterback three but the difference between him and my qb's four or five and six is much smaller in the overall ranks. And like it's an eyebrow raiser yeah for sure and i feel at this point. I have no problem as you mentioned whether it's kyle whether it's lamar whether it's some of their quarterback that's russ those probably the next four after josh over the next four quarterback that would imagine a close to consensus no problem bypassing back for one of those players. Murphy's law you know what's going to happen by the what's that you're gonna finish the show and of course. Espn pluses on demand. Service right. you could watch it today. You could watch it a week from right now. Right what's going to happen. Is the minute you guys finish taping the show. Yes and you start to produce it. And it's like getting ready to be uploaded. Espn plus ten seconds after. That's done where to get an update out for a month or something totally. He's going to practice tomorrow right.

That are fans of austin actor myself included on that list so for today on the show as i mentioned washington football team. Also the houston.

NFL Bans Dwight Schar From Future Ownership Interest in Any NFL Team
"Minority owners coming in at some point, but he is the he is the sole owner after buying back the minority shares from Dwight Schar, Fred Smith and Bob Rothman. And what was a very contentious uh, I think And this is that I don't know if it's been publicly put out like this, But I think it was a takeover attempt by the minority owners who were looking for a greater evaluation on on their sale of their minority piece, and all of this negativity started to pop up. In the Washington Post started to pop up and and social media. These accusations were thrown out there, all of which, incidentally, Dan Snyder has claimed responsibility for even though he was not directly implicated in any of those things. Um, And the news today is twofold. One that Daniel Snyder is it was fined $10 million. At least the Washington football team was fined $10 million. The clarity on that is that $10 million will go to charities, which which Tania, his wife and Dan will choose. So it's a $10 million fine, but it'll all go to an important cause. The other thing. That I think is not insignificant in this is that Dang Dwight Schar, who was one of those minority owners, and a lot of people believed was involved in the smear campaign on on Daniel Snyder has been banned for life. From the NFL. So, uh, while we while we want to vilified, um some of the things that went on inside the Washington organization, the the campaign It was put out to embarrass and try to force. Mr Snyder to Snell also came to light and again, I'll read it, I'll say it again. Dwight Schar, who was a minority owner, has been banned for life from the National Football League. Take that of what you will. Um, but that's not the story. So a lot of people there's some misconceptions out

Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 04
"Turnaround. Flip them for profit moving onto the next guy who ran five picks later in the nineteenth pick of the guy that i am super high on. Its the army brown from north carolina. Going to the washington football team and let me tell you why i like damn brown. The rebound has six one. One hundred eighty nine pounds of has pretty ideal size for receiver but and north carolina. he had to terrific seasons. He's past two seasons in twenty twenty. He had fifty five catches for one thousand ninety nine yards and the twenty nine thousand nine hundred fifty one catches for one thousand three hundred four forty nine yards and oh by the way throughout. He had twelve touchdowns in his sophomore year in towns in his junior. This is pretty impressive. Because i'm not sure if the North carolina has had great quarterback play particularly either. It is not. I'm not super familiar with a north carolina. The program but how how how should be the number one pick probably next year so they. They've had a pretty good quarterback he's other classmate that's right. I did hear about how so okay. They did have how but anyway. A guy putting up static this two years as Sophomore and junior. And he's doing this by the way with fifty one and fifth in fifty five receptions so it's not like he's getting a ton of targets he's maximizing opportunities putting up staff that are up there with with the top of the top and so this is a guy that You could argue count. Wise in what he's produced typically makes him atop success in receiver in this class. But oh by the way. He's fallen into the third round. Now the draft and he's actually ending up in a landing spot better than the guys that went before him because the washington football team they have terry maclaurin but do they have a number two receiver. No the don't cam. Sims is not going to cut it. Let's let's be real here for second. Kempson is not going to cut this guy who's going to step in right away and be the number two receiver so if anything. I can see this guy having a top five season as far as rookie receivers this this upcoming season because there is such an immediate chance for brown shine. I loved the town. And i love the situation. So both those things matchup for me and ryan patrick in their offense while just knowing ryan fitzpatrick. He's a guy who likes to sling the ball He's not free for big throws and yami brown is a guy that could be a target while so this is an the situation to really like especially in the strip term but i think his talent overall what is what will help him. Secure the number two role for washington in the long term. You did forget. Courtesy meals with their in the offseason. Curtis samuel okay. yes courtesy. You might be the number two receiver. But i'm not. I'm not saying that kurdistan wills a lot in geometry breath. If i think those are two big comparable players and the down brown can still end up. Overtaken curtis samuel for the number two role because it's not like samuels established in washington. Anyway he's gonna they're gonna walk on equal playing fields if anything. Yeah to co plank. Roads honestly yeah. So i mean i you know how high was on diane. Be brian i think i was probably than anybody else in the industry pre-draft in you know the fact that he didn't get a super high draft capital. I think a lot of people would just never really caught up to where the hype was going was headed towards So now he kinda ended up back back to where he's at. I know you said you saw them. You know at the beginning of the third round in. I'm in motion address. At pretty much where i got him every draft. You know there was two guys. I walked away with almost in every draft i. It was karen's marshall because if he was following the second taking them and diani bryant third. I was taking him no matter what and wasn't trained. Now those picks and i wasn't moving up or down at sticking with it. So i ended up with jami round maybe beating my number one player at of all my dynasty leaks. So you know. I'm i'm really high. I think there's a lot of potential to proprietor curse. Amiel i do think we'll we'll out touch him for sure year. One you know. But terry mccaren is another guy you know. He did not have first round draft capital as a rookie. So he's only got a couple of years left before they have to really choose on renewing his contract whether they wanna pay him if they view him to be a. You know an elite receiver that they wanna pay top ten top twenty money. They might just let him walk. You know and if that's the case the brown is almost a cologne terry records. You know he. He averaged over twenty yards a catch with a lot of volume in college. Which is one of. it's got to be one. The highest of abo scouted and You know the way he wins is he. Wins deep wins. He's a burner he gets out feel and i think there's actually a lot of room for him to grow because didn't see him run a really complex route tree and north carolina. They didn't ask them to you. Know and as kirsten says you know why why would the team tell him to do something different and teach them other rouse when when he consistently wins for twenty on the field every time you know. They don't need them to do that but an nfl. He probably has higher upside now because he can still learn. The trees like we saw with decay metcalf in some other like a jay brown. You know the same knock on metcalf was he. He only ran Slants down the in the Mississippi offense coming out of college and look how that turned out you know now. He's one of the better route runners in the entire league to mix with the athletes athletic ability. So i really liked the army brown. And i think that You know if you're getting him in the late second and early dirty of your rookie drafts. I think you're you're walking away with one of their players in the draft. One of the guys that we both really like. You can expect for geometry brown to produce put up some big

Washington Football Team owner Dan Snyder to buy all minority shares for $875 million
"The way today for Dan Snyder to take almost complete control. The Washington football team, The New York Times reporting, Snyder said to pay the minority owners $875 million for the remaining 40.5% of the team shares. Next hurdle takes place next week when the NFL owners they're scheduled to vote on Snyder's request to take on 4 to $50 million in debt to make it happen. The
Washington Football Team owner Dan Snyder to buy all minority shares for $875 million, report says
"Team owner Daniel Snyder is buying out the minority owners. Uh, the deal has been approved by the NFL Finance Committee. Daniel Snyder, the not going away. And there was a report that came out that they're not changing their name their nickname. They're going to be the Washington football team. You're not giving up. The team got total control. And Change fast, right? Member kind of teetering on. Oh, there's an investigation. Washington Post There's sexual harassment. Uh, Man, get a paid off somebody. And then all of a sudden, it's like nothing to see here once the season starts, Daniel Snyder's like, Yeah, Paul and you could find 20 articles from late August. Daniel Snyder must sell this team that NFL should remove Daniel Snyder. The minority owners of the team were complaining about Daniel Center. They're not could be anywhere more minority owners of the team. He's bought him all out going to buy them all out. Dance IRS entrenched And I go back to what I was told. I don't know how long it's been. It's been years and Daniel Snyder wanted to build a stadium back downtown in Washington, D. C and I was told by a very good source that the only way that would happen is if he changed the nickname. To the team. They were known as the Redskins. Well, he's changed the nickname And he have a stadium downtown. Yes. Yeah, but you get the sense that you know, there was clearly Ah, hostile takeover being attempted by minority owners and dangerous and that it was, like, all right, let's huddle up in the war room and start wiping people out. Yeah, let's just buy my oil. Yeah. See you guys. I'm gonna take care of all these people. Let's

Did Washington Do Enough to Push Dallas in the NFC?
"Did washington football teams teamers and the giants do enough to push dallas in the nfc. So i left philly out. I don't yeah. I just don't i am found anyone who really thinks they're going to be competitive. I mean let's wait and see got jalen whatever. But that's a team that they're not really fun to talk about. Because their free agency considered like stripping you know but i mean they did sign at harris for like nothing which is probably better sightings but what you have in jalen also you serianni. Yes hundred percent but washington in york both very active and did interesting. Things i think are worth discussing because dallas after the dak prescott deal was finally done. They've kind of made a few moves around the margins adding kia neil. Getting tied as kind of swing. Tackle still have question marks at adra sure and coroner but washington like i think they might have had my favorite free agency or at least the one that i'm most excited to see. I don't know payoff on the field. So just to recap. They signed the aforementioned ryan fitzpatrick one year. Ten million dollars. They tag branch eff. Who's there Pro bowler guard. They signed william jackson from the bengals. Cornerback three years. Forty two million dollars and then added panthers wide receiver. Curtis samuel for three years thirty four point five million dollars so just starting like let's start here. Do you agree with me like do you. Do you like what they did. And do you think it makes them an actual competitor in the division. A really like what. Washington did You know. I think among the guys among the quarterback that they could get because not only were they never in it for russell wilson or or wherever really going to be competitive for shawn watson You had to start looking okay. We'll what's realistic. And it's the ryan fitzpatrick coming off his best his career. It's an andy dalton and whereas that really gonna lead you I think that there was a lot of interest in marcus. Mariota he still is not able to sign with another team because the raiders are still holding him hostage But so. I like the quarterback. Move because you're essentially saying let's build up the team the and let's have the strongest team possible around the quarterback position where we don't sell out just because we have to for that position free agency. Maybe they make a move at the draft for a guy that they have their eye on. Or maybe they just say let's. Let's keep the boat floating this year and let's make our move Next free agency. So i thought that they probably overpaid by million or two on curtis samuel. But they wanted him And and ron rivera really likes them. Obviously william jackson an incredible deal You look around and you need another pass rusher and they can they can probably keep ryan kerrigan as a third down specialist if he comes down off his number end so you know he's he's still doing that. He's gonna get paid a whole lot of money. I'm not sure that that money is really out there especially at this point in free agency so they didn't want to mortgage their future for for quarterback right. Now they wanted to keep the boat afloat. I that and so. I like what they have done. Specially on evens. Then when you consider the the sort of offense and the pre-snap that they can have with all those offensive playmakers. Now that curtis annuals there with terry corn. I really like with done.

"Melanoma note from that game and see what it was. The really happened all right. All right guys man. We did it. We got another week of football awesome. Unfortunately we had to play the same. We were all into the bears of win. You know blood You know the rate of speed is to is a close game. Twenty seven twenty four. That was week eleven. Yeah we've twelve weeks eleven. Sure yeah. I just look down. And they've got evens meaner than the the saints. Oh yan they played well against the seahawks kept russell wilson bay which his line is trash should get them killed. But you pointed that out about week ten. I think it was and after that. it'd be like he just. He does a runs up for his frigging life every play. Thank them about the canidu-. I don't know i think one of their guys as a rookie. Somewhere on that line. I think during the playoff game they were talking about him. They used to have a nice good offensive line. But it seems like ever. Since i got russell wilson is this is not been a priority for him because he's got wheels and that's what happens when you get a quarterback. We only have only dolphins. Alana can block and it's kinda quarterback here but We'll we'll look into a much deeper analysis of the new orleans saints game little breakdown as to what i think we can do might happen what happened last time. Why it's not going to happen this time where you know. We're a different team now than we were. Last time we played the two times we played them so excited about him but we got. We got one more game walmart game. We got two extra games this year. Yeah as the best thing about playoffs you get an extra game. But i'll tell you i was sweat here we were. We were so exhausted saturday night. We didn't do anything later. We were going to. I've had my new year's resolution is to quit drinking soda. And i forgot this but the last time i quit so i have like three days of migraines and so Saturday ahead a headache. Right behind. This i i had a drink the night before so again. Maybe you know. I just didn't have enough water and then i still got it. It's monday still got that headaches in. And i drink too much friday night and kinda hung over saturday. We had company cy all day saturday. By the time the game came on we were exhausted and we were just on the couch. We dress eating instead of drinking. We weren't even with the. We weren't even like really cheering hard. Because the so tired tired and then we stress eight so we weren't as miserable but i did start cussing screen because in the second half we started you know not play as well. They started coming back getting close and i was like no. And that's the thing that sucks about playoffs. He knows what it's also. What makes it fun. It's that this is it. They've done if you don't you don't win this sudden death sudden death tie. We got another one coming up. It's a sunday at what tom six. Forty six forty hundred bucks eastern standard l.

"Practice in those all week and this was the first time he wore them because it was colder. That would be my theory. Who would do that. Who would go into a playoff game. We're in equipment. You've never worked before. Yeah i don't know either but yeah it was not a good showing by him. That was really frustrating. The alternative is that he just choked which is even more concerning first playoff game and you know our secondary. Let's be honest. They weren't the best that they've played in. They're all young guys. This is probably a big. You know a lot of nerves out there and all that. Good stuff i you know. I'm not. I'm not poon on. I think our defensive line did well a lot of people saying they didn't get enough pressure or pressure. And i'm like man. been watching a totally different game i was. I thought they got quite a bit of pressure dude. Had to scramble heineke he yeah scrambled quite a bit and you gotta figure they. the washington. football team did not announce that alex smith was inactive until like brain before the game so our defense and no prep time on heineke. Although you know heineke took team repsol week and rivera made it clear that he wasn't sure who was getting the stars so to me. I think that they probably should have looked at both. And not just alex smith and i hope that they did. I don't know but heineke you know how much tape is on him. Roy not a lot. Yeah think he's piece taken like two hundred snaps in the nfl. And i don't think anybody expected to see him. Dina run around like that. Yeah and he played great ball. I thought you know he was throwing-throwing. I mean he made some really dumb mistakes that could have bit him a couple of times he was getting hit and just chalked it up and he was lucky they weren't interceptions and he threw a couple that landed right in our. I mean whitehead on the defense dude. Like right in the breadbasket in their receivers had some dropped balls to say they were out there playing perfect and yeah well we were just the better team. There's no doubt about that. Brady played well. Four net played well. Our offensive line played great. Only crap let's talk about them for a minute. That was a really impressive performance from them. Considering head the dominant smith. They're beaten up on chase. Your let's love for donovan.

"God forbid white or devon gets hurt you know we're gonna put in and you know a lot of times what we're not a lot of task but a few times. We put three middle linebacker out there. So yeah my guess is all bring back chapelle russell you know. We just waved him. And he's one of those practice. Squads yeah casualties. So my guess is that we'll probably bring him back this week. I told you that the special teams was going to hurt us man than we had one blocked extra point. We didn't have a blocked field trying to do it but every single time it was close house like there was one from. I wanna say like the fifteen. It was a close one and it does barely was yogurt. And then i left upright in a lot of it came from laughed. One came up the middle and we'll came from the right. I mean it was like every every time it was a little bit different but the one that was blocked thinking came from the left left a position. would yeah we. We got to do something about that. In and begins you know he. He returned a plot one time he had fifteen yards in front of him and he hesitated and then went lateral. And didn't i think he got. Maybe two yards i. Now you're like you had to run forward. You what got fifteen yards instead of running fifteen yards laterally and getting to like. It made no sense when he was doing. Yeah i just. I just hated. It just seems like we do not put anything into special teams you know. She's an afterthought just basically don't screw up as what they seem to preach out there. I don't know how much time they put in the practice on specialties. But you know how many we got like fifteen different head coaches out there and we've got all these groups remember. How last year. We were doing the i team. Second teen were getting same about reps at the same time. Yeah i was awesome are we doing that was special teams and are now. We need to need to have special teams out there reps all day long but probably because their second team. That's her. I know her.

"The temperature here and people realize. Nobody cares that you're the Cowboys. In fact, they carry even more when they embarrass you. You know, make love. Injuries You're goingto use as an excuse, sir. Is that OK? It's the entire offensive line this year. All use it. Ken McCarthy get another year because that two years Yes, yeah. Me. Jerry had him sleep over his house. So I'm guessing they're you know, they're buddies. Not many owners bring somebody in and they sleep in their house. They have an overnight party matching pajamas, So I'm guessing Mike McCarthy and he should get another year. But I can't blame it all on injuries for 30 years. That's that's a really convenient excuse. Why haven't you guys been back to the Super Bowl in almost 30 years? Injuries, all right. 8773 d p, So email just dp Dan patrick dot com All that Washington football team is going to do it to us again this year because you know locally. The Washington fans. They don't care about the nickname. They just care about winning and losing. Nationally we get caught up in. They got to change that nickname. Okay, change the nickname. Well, he's not going to change the nickname. He removed it. And then he brought in some minorities He brought in. Ah ah woman and put her in a powerful plays. Change the broadcasting not going T Washington football team. They're going to keep it for the rest of this year and perhaps another year. And I thought everything that was going on off season. But you know these reports of what was going on internally and sexual harassment and all of these things, and I said all he wants to do is get to the season when the season starts, people are going to forget about Daniel Snyder. Now the fans are looking at a bad football team locally nationally. I don't know if anybody's going. You guys got to come up with a nickname now. I joked that they were going to call themselves the Washington football Club. I thought they were going to take on like a premiership. Now it's really it's the Washington football team. I thought that they should go with Washington football United and just, you know, with the initials F you because I think that's basically what Dan Snyder's saying. Nephew my team, do whatever I want. Oh, you had a problem with us is the Washington football team. We're going to keep it for another year. Daniel Snyder said that Washington football team could end up being the permanent name of the franchise. Good stuff. Yes, people. Do you think it's possible that the Daniel Snyder, a billionaire who does not like being told what to do, which is for done it that way. Is delaying the name out of spite because he and his marketing people could put together a name and We could put together a name before the end of this show. If you tried hard enough Well, the only thing I thought was billionaires. What more billions they They don't stop making money when they become a billionaire, and you could get a revenue stream of a brand new nickname for the Washington football team. But that could happen in February if you wanted to, but he but he's already wasted a year, right unless he goes. You know what? We made some money off the Washington football team. Well, if you call yourself the Washington football, whatever RedHawks. Then now you got merchandise that now you can market this and now you could make even more money. You're still going to have that secondary market that is going to buy Washington Redskins gear. And if I'm Daniel Snyder, I'd probably still try to somehow market that without doing it in front of the NFL and make money off that revenue stream and then a new one. Because that's always good at doing is making money. Yes, but as they may delay the inevitable can we call it the filibusters for the next year? If you want to watch football. Look, I want my column. Political you did We try not to get political on their show. All right. Two is now going to be your starting quarterback. And he takes over for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Ryan Fitzpatrick has to blow out winds and all of a sudden he gets replaced. But Miami took to it number five overall, and they knew he was the long term plan. But with the NFL now your long term plan starts in year one Because you find your quarterback. Find out if you have a quarterback now, you start making plans. Like Cincinnati knows they had their quarterback. The Eagles aren't probably aren't sure if they have their quarterback in Carson wins, you know, do the Rams have their quarterback and Jared? Golf? They've already paid these guys. You know Justin Herbert, The Chargers have their quarterback. They found out they wouldn't have found out this early. If Tyrod Taylor didn't get his lung puncture. And now the Dolphins want to know is to, uh, our franchise quarterback. Because once you find him now you're on the clock. You have four years before you have to pay him. Because when you pay him, then it's difficult to keep that team. Keep the team together that you built and we saw this with Seattle C. I don't did it because Russell Wilson is that good? That they lost those defensive players. But they were able to pay those defensive players that help Russell Wilson get into position of winning a Super Bowl and nearly winning another one. That's really the blueprint. That's what you want. You know, there's certain teams like the Saints, the Packers the Patriots when Brady was there, that you have your quarterback long term, but you hope that it's on a team friendly contract. And the Chiefs. I think gave Patrick Mahomes a team friendly contract. You spread out that money. You got him locked up. You never have to worry about it in four years will look at that Go kind of got a good deal on them. Assuming he stays healthy, and then they holds out after having getting three rings. He'll hold out for 60 million here, but I'm I'm excited for the Dolphins, because now they're relevant. Now they become exciting. Now you're at least interested. There's a curiosity to see. Did they make the right decision and how good is to Miami Club? It's funny about that team, too, because we don't really know a lot of names. They're very anonymous on both sides of the ball like this who their star players, other I mean, we had to remember we were talking about their running back Miles Gaskin. The out of us knew they don't really have receivers. They have a good tight end Mike to sake. I thought he was going to be a star. Remember telling you that when I watch Penn State play, I said, this tight end he is going to be a star. I thought he would be a George Kittle type, picked it up a little dish in a little. I thought he was going to be great. What if they were that Texans get in like a jail and waddled March 8? It's another wide receiver draft. That probably be a direction I go in. Have to reunite with one of the Alabama wide receivers, but they had the Texans pick and they also.

"A Washington. football fan the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins and I was brought up to be a fan of theirs from the time. I was probably Super Bowl before 7, I believe it was when the Dolphins played the Redskins and and I became a fan of theirs off the way throughout growing up because of my older brother and followed him all the way up through through the gray ears with Jack Kent Cooke was the owner And Joe Gibbs was the coach the first time around and had his three quarterbacks Joe Theismann. Doug Williams and Mark Rypien all deliver and Super Bowls and a great really historical rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants and in the NFC East is always was always a great division to follow if you lived up in the Northeast and I was up in Connecticut. And so I was a huge fan of life and I've always followed them, but I've never liked their owner since Dan Schneider took over the organization. I've never really felt like he's done the right thing by the by the fans or by the community and so it's been harder to be a fan. And and it's funny because in the last previous five years, they lost all their season openers and they always started out the season. So so it usually went South fairly quick once a while they may do well at the end of the season but it's you know, 1991 was the last time they want to title so it's been twenty nine years, but then you see them finally after years and years and years of pressure to do so and an owner said they would never do so, they finally changed the name they remove the mascot and under pressure from at FedEx and from you know, the community and where we're at right now is a as a as a country and off and so they are now the Washington football team. And the last six times they played the eagles they lost them and the last five times they open the season they lost in this season. They're they fall 2017 enough and it looks like it's going to be the same old Washington team. And then they scored 27 straight points. And they win the game. And they have a new Coach Ron Rivera and he's had to go. He's had to go under undergo chemotherapy this week. And so I mean Kudos to him for for being there on the sidelines and and he he clearly is making a big difference in this organization. He's a tremendous individual has a great deal of integrity and I think under the current situation. He is a tremendous person to have at the hell. Of the Washington football team and I couldn't be happier for a coach than I am for this individual because to take over this job. This year with all of the problems going on and allegations of harassment in the front office. And I just think he's a tremendous individual so kudos to Ron Rivera. And that's my take..

I don't I don't remember the year but the Tigers played the Yankees of 22 inning game. Some guy named Reed hit a home run and beat the Tigers. But my point is, I don't get what's the deal if it takes three hours or three hours and eight minutes or three hours and 20 minutes. You know, a buddy of mine. We were T asked me what I thought about putting a runner at second. I said, Well, I just load the basis, he says. I got a better idea. Just flip a coin and in the game You know, that's kind of what I was just theorizing with the cola brought to the table yesterday. You have a coin flip. But then you play 1/2 inning and the coin flip determines whether team wants to take a chance to score run or keep the other team from scoring a run. That's what it's come to. I'm okay with that. The key thing that you said, and it takes one to know one you said I'm an old baseball fan. That's why they're trying to speed the game along because younger generation just doesn't have the staying power that youand I D'oh. Tonight. We ask you a question. I was asking the screener. You know they want they want to cut the games the time down. You know what one of the pitchers throw. Was it six or eight, Uh, warm up pitches every year between every inning. That is, I think it's seven. Actually, you said between six and eight. Yeah, I think you're right. Addicted seven. Well, if a guy pitches what, seven innings and he throws seven times seven is 49 warm up pitches. I mean, I would think they could cut some time down there and maybe maybe Ah help his arm out a little bit..
