"The prospect of keeping edwards helaire with acres as your two running back keepers for ever and ever the that. That looks good And it'd be cool to have that tight end advantage with andrews. And i i think maybe along those same lines just thinking long term with your keepers if you can go long term. He makes sense over. Julio in that regard and dante johnson's probably not going to match what he did last year. Okay this is Don't have no name or city. Dave it is barbara from glenview illinois. Ten team dynasty leagues half pr. A young team with picks one. Oh one an one. Oh three i have. Mccaffrey dobbins lamb. Dak kittle lock it and fuller when ice. Yeah and one to one or three would you trade. Mccaffrey for antonio gibson pick four. Pick three ten anti higgins or am i good enough to win now. I actually responded to this email. Don't do very often so. I probably wouldn't 'cause i think you have this team. And you have a chance to have dak mccaffrey. Dobbins and either harris t n Lamb chase lockett and fuller kittle. I think that is a contender this year. Okay yeah i think. I think the offer is fantastic. And i love christian. Mccaffrey but archie. Getting future mcrae. Mccaffrey with antonio gibson. I and other thing. I think that matters. It's ten team league. It's not difficult and attend team league to drive yourself insane by having six number two running backs and six number two wide receivers and starting the wrong one every week. It's very good. Points duds are more valuable in a ten team. Lead in the twelve team league or i. This is from bruce. Whereas bruce from bruce's from syracuse new york. Am i okay to believe in zach ertz and aj green at eighty adp. You can basically get hurts and green for nothing next to nothing. Excellent players that you could draft with one of your last picks and kicked to the curb. If they're doing nothing by week three. Just take one word out of what. Dave said excellent excellent. Can you just say these players that you can take one of your last fix. I like her. It's more than green. Okay i dave influence me a little bit with his stat about. Aj green that he had the lowest on target percentage of pass whatever i would just always percentage of catchable receiver with one hundred plus last year. Basically set up for failure so it made me think a little bit that would influence me more. If it wasn't for the fact that he played nine games in two years before that and he see his yards per catch which isn't affected by catch rate at all was all the way to eleven point. One.

"Couple of the NFL notes while the 40 Niners Are not in camp. They're all they're all done until Training camp. We had mentioned a couple of guys who could shake free Jamison card being one, but the Jets and Crowder finalized a renegotiated contract. That will keep him on the team in 2021. So no Jamison Crowder if we thought maybe he would be released, No, have been a bad one. Have been Julio, but wouldn't have been a bad one. Yeah, I think that's a little too expensive. We talked to barrels about that him and and Zacher. It's just not gonna happen. Yeah, Crazy. Yeah. Same thing in Philly. Well, they say, Nick moans today. It doesn't sound like they're in any hurry to move. Zach Ertz. He makes $8.5 million and then one other guy, Stephon Gilmore. I'd love to see what the 49 ers he wants a new contract rehabbing from a partially torn quad. He was not president of the team's mandatory minicamp today, so That's that. Yeah. I mean, these we'd love to have and I'll Julio Jones, Jamison Crowder, Zach Ertz Tuvan Gilmore that all these starters, you're talking about high end players, but part of their dissatisfaction. With all of them. You can put Aaron Rodgers in there as well is money. So you know, they're just asking Crowder to take a big pay cut. How is that going to work out? I don't think they gotta cut him off the team. Why would you do that? Um, but you may trade him and then likewise for Hertz and something's going on with Howie Roseman there when, right after they drafted Dallas Goddard. They gotta. I don't know if he's quite the the fast target Route Runner catcher. He's good, though exact, but he's a better in line blocker. Um, so we'll see where he goes. And then you know. Stefan Gilmore is the one guy that that Belichick you know, with the exception of this year, when he went all in to make up for previous draft mistakes. And the fact that his quarterback could kind of, uh, Make things better than ultimately, the whole roster seemed to be He will not spend a lot of money. But he's never done that before, With the exception of the one time In the A F. C East. The guy he knew Wells to find. Gilmore was free, and he signed him as a free agent gave him big money. Change the way he played a much better player in New England, asking him to, you know, play press man will play zone behind you or half the field zone. You're playing man just play to his skill because he would be a Guy who they remember New England attacking him. One game at a go route with Chris Hogan is now playing professional lacks across right now, which is interesting. But I mean for the 49 ers, that's just not going to happen. For the same reason you couldn't get Julio Jones. I mean, those teams are not could just give those players away. You're up against it. I don't think he's not going to trade Gilmore. If he would have traded Gilmore. He would have already been gone by now. He's going to hold on to Gilmore. The question is, he's not going to resign Gilmore. So what he Chad Gilmore in the off season and try to get something for him there or how does he play that? But I think it's uh Of those three Uh, I would say that the highest degree of probability of being treated would be Zachary. But not to the 49 ers. Yeah, I wouldn't think so, either. The other thing, too. I was reading Matt Miyoko space and today and he talks about the off season for the 49 ers. The one thing that catches my eye. Is that you know, one of the reasons I think you and I talked about this last week. They don't go out and get Julio Jones is there's the big financial element to it, but he was projecting the the money. The first round picks and again this is why resetting the quarterback position as far as salary is such a big deal. Trade. Lance's contract is projected to be four years for $34.1 million. A top end back gets paid that $34.1 million per year. Aaron Banks second round pick 48th overall projected contract four years $7.1 million. I mean, that's the bottom of the roster kind of on an offensive lineman to make just a couple million years to the point that I'm making it all this and I don't need to go down everyone he's projected to each Uh, each picks dollar amount, But let's just look at Lance, For example, four years $34.1 million. You get a reset that position if those first few picks 2nd 3rd round, So if you're going, Aaron Banks, Trey sermon angry, Thomas those kind of guys. If those guys are as projected and go into your starting lineup, they're they're making such many school amount of money that if you hit on those pics, then you can go out and you can spend money. Other way ways. You can give Fred Warner his contract sanction. Nick Bosa is gonna be coming up so It's just huge. You do that. But it's one of the reasons why they're moving on from Jimmy to Trey. Lance is because basically what a top end quarterback gets paid in a year. That's what it's gonna do for Trey Lance over four years, and hopefully he can be a really good quarterback at that point, and you can kind of get ahead of the game that way. Well, it's it's why they traded Forest Buckner and took that very draft pick and they move back a spot but essentially the same deal to get even Ken Law. Look at how much Diovan kin loss making and the totality of his contract versus one year of the Forest Buckner. So in this it wasn't always like this in the NFL, you know? Go back to JaMarcus Russell. Sam Bradford was the last guy to get a really humongous deal, and Sam was a really good player. I just never had the right people around him got hurt her. A lot was forced to change change with Sam Bradford is tremendous talent He was when he played But he was the last one to get that kind of money. And then they you know the vets in the league and they run the union. You know D Smith there before him, Gene Upshaw, But it's the players, the veterans. That had enough of these players coming in. And making more money than they did right away. And they went to a rookie. Uh, you know, rookies scale and get it in the NBA. You know, there was there was years where NBA players came in right away. And then they changed all that. And that's the veteran players, so it didn't used to be like this forever. It's just has been like this The last 10 years or so. Uh and it's how you do business, so there's no doubt but at the same time And it's not just Fred. Fred's going to get Fred Warner is going to get a new deal here. Nick Boss is going to get a new deal here. McGlinchey, you know, question mark about him. Chamblin Senate left guard Leikin. If some of these young guards can You know, Push him then. You may not have to go that way. You mentioned banks also. Jalen Moore. If you hit Jalen Moore, you don't have to give lake in a huge extension. It saves your money. It's a hard cap in this league, the other sports do not. They have solved. They're they're penalized by Taxes. But if you want your owner wants to pay those in the NFL, you can't do that. But at the same time If you have, Trey Lance is not ready to check the team over then you do other things. If you have to keep Garoppolo, and it makes you better there. They know what the salary cap is. And And what the wages are. They got it all. You know, penciled out for years. They know exactly what they're up against. And they know what they have to pay Fred and what I'm ultimately have to play neck and they know all these things. But if Jimmy is better Then you figure out a way to keep that. But the problem you have, John is not. You know the guys that are up and you've got one or for one more year, So it's not pressing and he got neck for a little while. He's just going into his third year. You're obviously going to pick up his fifth year option. So you got him for a couple of more years. It's the guys that you signed a one year deals. Jason Verrett, right. It's time to pay Jason Verrett. He took a little bit last year because the whole thing was so depressed. Jason Verrett puts the same year back on tape..
"zach ertz" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio
"So what do you think is the biggest stumbling block with Zach Ertz move because It seems to me yet. The obvious is he's coming off a down year when the quarterback position was a mess for Philadelphia last season, so that's not necessarily his fault. But the numbers are the numbers. And then there are reports that he does not want a new deal after a trade is made, because he wants to get back into free agency, which I totally get also, But these things don't seem to help his trade market values. So Where do you see the issue here and trying to find a trade partner for Philadelphia. It is high Roseman over playing his hand. I think he was Trying to trade Zach Ertz of 2017, 18 and 19. Um, And there were teams which had a tight in need, like the charges that went out and filled it. And you don't have a whole lot of teams in. He always seemed like the obvious choice to me because break right? Was an offensive coordinator is Quarterback Carson Wentz. You threw him the ball. Made a point of finding him that seemed like a great spot to me more than anyplace else. I think I'd lay the blame or on Howie Roseman overvaluing Zach Ertz in the marketplace. Which could be what the thousands who told you And is that why it hasn't happened? Is it strictly the calendars to why? It hasn't happened for Zach Ertz? Or is it Howie Roseman trying to, you know, get back some of what he overplayed. Well, he initially was asking for Matthew Stafford compensation for Carson Wentz imploded last year. So I blame and more on how you rose in the calendar because You can either take the division where they pick up like 47 cap space. If they traded Zach Ertz before June 2nd. I can't imagine castrated today. And as I say that he's going to get traded today or you pick up 85 because you're able to split the operation over two years. And then you know the the Bills organization things they're going to change dramatically in terms of salary shift when they do pay. Josh Alan, Um Most seem to be of the belief that No, Josh would be more in line to get one of those shorter term deals. Maybe more in line with Shawn Watson than what we saw Patrick Mahomes get Are you anticipating that The Patrick Mahomes deal is Is going to be an out liar and comparison to what some of these 2018 class of quarterbacks, they're going to be looking for more of the shorter ones to kind of get back in the market to swing again. Yes, I think it's gonna be an out liar. The one I would keep an eye on with that. And maybe it's a long deal, which doesn't have the roster bonus guarantees in the same way as my Holmes's does, so he's pretty much a sure to be in there you in advance. Would be Lamar Jackson. He says He wants to be a raving for life and doesn't have an agent that enough. He has, like the advisers similar to what a body Wagner or let me counsel at That has a recipe for disaster written all over it for Lamar Jackson. And what about the situation in Green Bay? Aaron Rodgers versus the Packers? The key that one of the dates to know and what's gonna happen with that? I mean, I Aaron Rodgers is going nowhere. In the short term. But is he laying groundwork for annexing next year? At least? I always thought that he was going to exit next year when they drafted Jordan Love because you can't have Jordan love sit three years on a four year rookie contract when you have to make the option year. Decision after the 30 year. I always thought 2022 was the time when Aaron Rogers was going to be traded. Right now we've got a high stakes game of chicken. Um, we'll see how much how much conviction Rogers has because it could become very costly. That he sticks to his guns $50,000 per day For each day in this training camp and then six neighbor hold out, they can start taking back part of the prorated portion of the signing bonus. And then if he starts missing regular season games, you're not getting paid. So we'll see how much conviction he had was with a guy that stopped talking to members of his family for years at a time. I don't know if they reconciled so E. I would not dismiss him having a lot of result more so than the average player talking to CBS Sports salary cap expert in NFL writer also, former sports agent Joel Curry. Jill. Corey. Excuse me And you know, Joel I was looking at Basically the Juwan James thing, and I have to believe you had to take on that because You know, The guy unfortunately, has an injury away from you know the Denver Broncos training facilities. They label it a non football injury because it doesn't happen on their property, and then they just kind of cut him loose. And then they did it with the second player on their roster as well, who got injured? Um I mean, they're within the rules. What? What do you think the ripple effects of those Those moves will be league wide. Well, First of all, I was a little surprised that players like patting the homes did not know. The rule because he expressed surprise that James's money could be at risk. Now the first thing that should have happened when NFL P A was organizing the off season workout boycott is they needed to explain what the pros and cons risk and ramifications were, and also it's up to the individual. Agent for each player who's contemplating not showing up. Well, if you get hurt is what happens. We've seen some of the ripple effect. Eve it, um He's and players have negotiated individual changes off season workout programs. And I expect that next year you're gonna see maybe the NFL NFLPA trying incorporate some of these changes in the relaxed Workout programs on a go forward basis. The NFL and the NFLPA have agreed and they've been taught. I think more so than any other year in our remembrance because of the pandemic last year, the last 12 or 14 months, the NFL, the union and the league have spoken probably more times than they can count. They agreed on a $208.2 million cap ceiling for this coming year. How much do you think that is? Maybe a suppression of maybe the revenue that they're going to get and a payback for what the league gave up last year to get the Games in. I mean, give us a new idea of your ballpark figure about where that 208 million sits. In the maximum in the minimum of possibilities. Well when Brandon be talked about cutting Players who aren't vaccinated. He also said something else that he didn't know. What to do about stating capacity in terms of cat planning was using 195 20 million is projections. Now it seems like most things we're gonna have full capacity or close to it. So maybe 208.2 Is realistic, Defeated, but I've never heard of a cap on the cap, a ceiling so The more the higher the cap is, And if you exceed that, then you're gonna be able to pay back more than money there was borrowed to keep the cap from dropping the 1 55 1 60. And then a 2023. You'd have a bigger increase, and that's the first year and you really expect the captain take off, But this is exactly the feeling is so they can pay back losses. So in the case that Cap. Does being hard anticipated. Then pay back in the being quicker set of stretching out over a longer period of time. The cap what people were thinking We're working between 215 and 220 this next year. Do you think it gets back to that? And they're paying Maybe what a 5% of it back like 10 million per team back like first is off the cap instead of 218 is 208 is you think that's that big a gap? I don't know if we get there When Brandon being stalking 1, 95 220 22. I suspected his projections are off from everyone else's. That's why he's initially talking about and you have to err on the side of conservatism. Cat projections. You can't Here on the high end. He has been here in real trouble If the cap comes on lower, so maybe that was artificially low, but you really need Cab, Tonto try to get back to close toe. What it would have been. If you could get up to 208 million talking up, 14% increase and we haven't had a 14% increase. In quite some time. It would go back to the days when you used to dump all the money in from the new TV deals in the first year or big chunk of it, and you have a huge spike in the cab or cap would go up..
"zach ertz" Discussed on Bleeding Green Nation
"Let's go ahead and start are tied in conversation. P. would be free agents we can kind of talk about a sort of defacto free agent as it stands late sunday evening You know people behind the curtain night already gotten the daily recorded so it's my bad here But it was reported by nfl networks. Mike silver. I saved it actually because i knew we were talking about that ends. The multiple teams have called the philadelphia eagles about trading for tight. End zach ertz. Now i would argue. We're gonna talk about about five free agents. I would argue that. It's accurate is a better option than eighty four of them. Eighty five out of how you feel Silver said a deal could happen in the coming days. Obviously free agency is getting closer. Philadelphia can save just under five million dollars against their salary cap by moving him away from there. Now it's something important to note. Is that zach. Ertz technically has three years left on his contract. However two thousand twenty two twenty three are both void years which means they are dumb ears which means they don't count So this is effectively a one year deal for whoever is trading for him in my mind they would have to either be zach ertz away or they value the twenty twenty three compensatory picks that they could get if and when he leaves in free agency next year at i think also says a lot of what the eagles think about dallas goedert and everything he can drive with jacquards to me in his own right so there is simply a tier one and we know the three names there and then you get to this tier two until you three names. Kelsey kid all. And darren waller. And then i think when you get to tear to a high tier two and there's a low tier two and for me like Is in that high tier two and the tight ends. We're about to discuss. Oh you tight. End teams out. There are more of a low to your too. So if i need a tight end right now. I think i'm considering making this trade now. Of course you're not going to trade your entire future for ertz but if you need and athletic tight end to be on par with some of these other teams as i just mentioned. What was the raiders. The chiefs in the forty niners. Maybe maybe going still right. I don't think that's accurate. Is gonna command all too much because of the situation he's in contractually. I mean nobody's giving up more than a third round pick for him right and probably not even that because of the compensatory pick. You know situation that it's going to follow. This was not a great season for soccer. It's only played eleven games. Three hundred thirty. Five yards one touchdown a lot of that due to the quarterback out to the derek carr point in two thousand and nineteen eighteen. Seventeen he was relatively fantastic. If you go back to zach ertz in what they can call break-up day when your team doesn't make the playoffs and they have these final interviews earn essentially in tears knowing that you probably has played his last game philadelphia eagle and now part of that team that won the super bowl. philadelphia has really loved earth. But each just can't see this working out. And so i think the writing on the wall hair eager to see where he goes. I think chicago is an easy layup of connection. I've actually made that lay-up myself for a few reasons. One of nick foles stays. Obviously you know whatever To juliet's is fantastic in her own right as an athlete but she plays for the nwa sell team in chicago. Just like j. J. watt wife. Think it needs to be a team with a lot of cap space. Because as you mentioned you know that he they're going to have to carve that out and right now there's a lot of teams in the league that maybe could use a tight end but simply cannot afford to go and spend that money and so i look at the teams with the top amount of cap space. Jaguars comes to mind. I know efforts there and the jets. As well i i just i think you can always use what is another target. Even what could be the new england patriots. My last question here before we move on. Would it be cool or lame if the indianapolis called scott him. Well my thing is. I will really like mo alley cox and. I can't understand why he doesn't play more in indianapolis. And so. I wouldn't like that but i think you know you make that carson wentz connection. I think you can put. What would be the duo proverbial chip on both of their shoulders and it would certainly be an interesting storyline. And so i would take it. But i mean now mo alley who i love again. That big bodied tied was shown he can catch just will continue to get buried on the depth chart you can hear the rest of this conversation by subscribing to the sp nation nfl.

What they're saying: Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz or other teams — who has the leverage?
"All about away. Bought away by the way. The miami dolphins got their guy. I just meant they got us. That dude is they got a guy young guy so let's put some. what are we talking about. Let's put the question. Then this way. And by the way i would say this right now to are coordinating producer. Pete mcconville and our producer. Allie grenade. i don't understand how we do not yet have a feature called jeff saturday. Who's high this week. I mean every week jeff. Hester name that's got to become a tuesday stable. Is this week. We make a segment out of everything on this show but markets very quickly. If the dolphins get forgetting about guam if the dolphins get to shawn watson are they the biggest threat to kansas city in the afc next year. Yeah they are. And i know i say that because i saw were buffalo did. But i'm taking the sean before. I take josh allen and their defense. I'm taking miami. Defense with the sean. Look the inspire football. You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem

"Get a young quarterback like mac and go out there and win win football games they might not be blowouts but in two thousand one. They weren't blowing people out there when with defense so i think that bill might go back in time and try and rebuild his defense first and then move forward with a young quarterback. I liked that. Let me get in here. What do you think well he can go back in the hot tub time machine at all he wants but guess what when he comes back with that great defense he's gonna be in the future and the future is all fence. That's how you win in his league. Yes you win championships defense. But how crazy is this. Last year they were tells us that jurisdiction was the guy. What happened to that guy. And i think that you think about cam newton cam newton feels more comfortable going back. Where ron rivera in washington. When he looks at that team with a playoff team in a division in which they don't have anybody. That's a viable threat. We don't know who's gonna play quarterback within that division. So you look at your. It's crazy that the new england patriots are the team with money that nobody wants to take. Because if i'm receiver. I'm looking at all my other options. Because i don't know who's gonna throw me the football. I think marcus mariota may be the best chance. They have a retread abridge quarterback even if they're going to bring in a guy like mack jones because this guy is ready to be thrown to the wolves. I know he went with nick sabin. But that doesn't mean he's ready for the big time. I think you'll you think about the patriots and how ironic it is. That jerry stiller was the guy he's not the guy and how they have the win with defense but they have an aging roster. You think about the mccorvey twins. They're thirty three years old. Greeny a rebuil- into division when everybody has a young quarterback whether the jets hold on a sound or not i mean bring respect into the conversation. Mike assume you can hear me because there are two veterans that you brought up multiple times one was mariota and the other of course is jimmy g. Get a quick rundown on the likelihood or the way those things could happen. If that's what. Bill wants definitely green. I think if you contrast it i mean jimmy g. is san francisco even going to be willing to trade him. Mario wyatt's more realistic option. Is they have. Derek carr and mariota is sort of makes their salary cap situation tight and mike mayock. Their general manager says we need to improve our defense. We don't have a game breaking player on defense. Who can alter the game..

And there's so many parts of this that are are worthy of discussion. In retrospect we should have given greater consideration. Kimberly you and i talked about this. And i just can't understand how anyone missed this it. It seems impossible to me that going into this higher. How could anyone have not looked at it and said this is going to be a problem and we're going to deal with it this way. I find that startling. Kimberly what is your take on the whole thing.

Meyer is used to being checked on things. This is a guy who's who's judgment has been questioned in the past. And when he when they had the press conference and he was asked about doyle and his response is explanation. As to why you would hire this guy for an nfl position was oh don. We like i've known for twenty years like we've met him and if that sort of dismissive yet don't worry about it. I know what i'm doing. That's what why the reaction was so strong and this is the nfl. You might be the head coach of the jaguars. Whatever you do will be questioned. We'll be talked about. This is in college where you're running. Everything that i think is a really important point. Let me bring that out. Mike t you were making that point in our meeting this morning. That when you're a college coach the ex you have the expectation that you control absolutely everything and when you come to the nfl..

"It's easy to see why they wanna bring in a veteran because both the coach and the general manager are one bad season away from getting fired. For sure you don't wanna put that job into the hands of a rookie. But if you're there do you think that carson wentz's the answer no no because his performance does not match his compensation if you trade for wins. He is on the books for a hundred and thirty two million dollars from season to twenty twenty one to twenty twenty four hundred and thirty two million dollars. That's highest in the nfl. So if his production was anywhere close to that i feel like teams would do it but when they look at the film and you put on the film you're like i'm not putting myself in this position to trade for a guy that's gonna come into our team and become highest paid guy and his production isn't there so if i'm if i'm chicago and i look at trubisky's last three seasons as better than winces. So i'm not going there. I'm not trading forum. I'm not giving up the picks for that contract. It's just not gonna happen so the eagles aren't going to get what they want for him. The expression on the face of bart scott news me thinking there. I mean i know which has had the best season last year but come on mitchell trubisky. This is a. This is a great upgrade. You think about what he was. He's a guy that was sacked fifty times. We saw patrick mahomes become a mere mortal when he didn't have protection. Well that's what exactly what carson wentz had to endure in philadelphia. This is a team that got old when all info championship. They won the championship and everybody around him. Got all the pieces. Got old around him. I mean he's trying to throw to design watson who's like a ferrari. Yeah it's beautiful but detect intellects always on so you think about if he goes to the cargo that makes chicago. I believe a super bowl. Contender can can you repeat that you believe that carson wentz on the bears makes the bears a super bowl. Contender order colts as well. Because you just think about you know what carson wentz looks like. When he's able to improvise all schedule plays you think about giving him protected. This is a man that was sacked fifty times this because he has nobody to throw to. I mean he had no protection and he had he had a average running game. Yeah i mean the colts super bowl. Contender with me is their quarterback so that i have no quarrel with whatsoever. The bears might be a little different circumstance. Let me leave it there. We we also had this very serious story over the weekend and one that is still leaves me scratching my head. The jaguars director of sports performance chris. Doyle resigned late..

"Get up and it just see this. Johnny manziel made his return and the debut the fan controlled. Football league nearly took his first in for a touchdown and in the fcf point after attempts one on one match ups after his team's loss menzel commented win or lose we booze on the zappers. So there's that johnny manziel te back in football all right. If the eagles think they're getting a deal the lions got for matthew stafford. They need to adjust their expectations. We'll tell you why as we roll on and sneaky hembo is going to try and get his week started fast head to head with bart. Here's the question which quarterback receiver tandem has connected the most times last five seasons. That's the question the answers neck get up on. Espn i were back on up. And bart scott. I think he's got a shot at this. One which quarterback receiver tandem has connected the most times over the last five seasons. This is tough one greenie. But i'm going to go with a iran and devante that's close. They are third. But only eleven receptions out of i the answer is matt ryan and julio jones who have one more connection than drew brees it michael thomas and in third place is rogers and davante adams and then in fourth place which is why chose the question are carson wentz and zach ertz carson. Wentz trade saga continues. There are league sources. who believe are. The eagles will also explore options with earth's maybe philly could include him in a package to maximize trade value or it says one year and eight point two five million dollars left on his contract. So it's very reasonable. However despite the fact that neither man played a full season in twenty twenty they both had what could be described as their worst seasons once had career lows in completion percentage and qbr birds had just over three hundred receiving yards and one touchdown also career lows. So let's come out and talk a little bit here and the carson wentz story is one that we just keep waiting. This could be any minute or to. Continue to drag on and kimberly. How would you describe the reaction around the league to the fact that the eagles seemed not to be getting what they think they should get in a trade for carson wentz. No one's surprise that they're not getting their asking price. I mean i think it's the arctic ocean you start really high but unfortunately for the eagles they're trying to sell everybody on this seventeen version of wentz when we all just watch the twenty twenty version of once and it was not pretty the thing that i find the most interesting that we assume would be all in on carson wentz. That would have picked up. The phone is like yes. That's the guy. It'd be the bears because of john vi filipo. They're passing game coordinator. It'd be the colts. Because of frank. Reich press taylor micro all these guys have eagles connections in carson connections and the fact that we haven't seen any movement here yet and we haven't seen the eagles get what they're asking for. I find that a little interesting. John and it could mean. The eagles have an expectation of what they should be getting for wednesday..

"He has to be a complimentary at this stage in his career. I think he's gonna go somewhere. And i think he should go to a contender. Don't chase the defense oldest game chase the best quarterback okay and so with that thought in mind. Mike tannenbaum could. Jj watt be one of many who will take up particular trek off-season. What direction are you looking greeting question about when you talk to people around the league teams agents tampa bay immediately overnight has become this incredible destination. They check every box as bartolucci to. Obviously you have a chance to win. You're playing with tom. Brady but bruce arians is really key to this. Bruce arians take care of veteran players. He had tom brady missing practices just he was worn out. There's no state income tax in florida. You practice on grass you play on grass so it checks every box so look at. Jj watt i know they wanna keep shaq barrett but shack barracks price gets too high. You could say you know what j. j. not the same player that check barrett is fifteen twenty staffs again he could russia passer and now we can take that money. And maybe keep chris godwin indomitable sue lavar avantis david. And that's how you play that game you leverage the fact that all these players wanna go to tampa and winwood brady practice under arians and now you may be able to keep more of your core team together about to tell as old as time right that players get into their careers and they're a little later in their careers. They go ring chasing right now. Tampa seems like a logical place to go try and chase a ring with. Brady's excellent partridge said. Go chase the quarterback and right now there are a lot of reasons that becomes an attractive place. Nikko how do you see it. If i'm defensive coordinator i want. Jj watt his ability to push the pocket. He's not running up the field and running around blocks. He's able to press into the pocket and really affect quarterbacks and thirty one thirty two years old look. He says he can still play a high level. I don't think he can play at the level. He did maybe five years ago. But when you think about the titans tennessee titans what do they need. They need defense and they have mike gabel as the head coach so j. J. watt has played with mike vrabel. He was a coordinator position coach. So there is a relationship there and tennessee just like mike said with florida no state income tax. They practice on grass. They play on grasso of all those things come together. Maybe he's a tennessee titan. Because i know the one thing that tennessee does need that's leadership on defense and a pass rush and so we talk about tampa. We talk about tennessee and we haven't mentioned his brother who both play in the same city. Well absolutely you'd think about green bay natural fit depre- probably going to be not resigned. He's on a franchise tag towards. He's yourself because next year. They're going to have to give either makeup fitzpatrick or they're going to have to give tj. What a huge station. But you think about the natural fit three four. He's long and lean like kiesel used to be to play five technique but he can slide out and play the no pass rusher opposite his brother. And that'll be a tremendous tandem. But i tell you what we haven't mentioned those deals with the cheeseheads. You talk about jason quarterbacks the best quarterback who's accord best quarterback in the league this year. Oh yeah that would be a iran back in wisconsin. Home reunion for him. You think about their smith. Preston smith on the outside. You'll shine gary being able to put a nascar package that has. Jj watt gary inside to dares impressive smith on the outside. That would be lethal. That would be an interesting thought there. Jj watt going back where it all began played at wisconsin and maybe to finish his career.

Did it make in the super bowl. But this past tossing the lombardi trophy. She hasn't slept and want a public apology from the goat. On sam darnold. Who would have thought that. After such a terrible season with the jets that sam darnold would actually be a crucial domino. This offseason a lot of teams are seeing a qb castle this offseason. A lot of teams have reached out to the jets. The question is for new head coach. Robert sala do they see darnold somebody they can fix and win with or do they use sam darnold get other pieces and get their qb in the draft interesting. Jj watt yeah jj watt. We're just talking about him. Ask for the texans agree to release him. Both sides wanted out. Jj watt he. He's committed a pretty good market right now. I mean like we talked but he's not going to be an every down guy. He's a complementary piece of situational pass rusher and they're going to be a lot of teams that feel like adding. jj watt. we'll take them over the hump okay. That's an interesting one because. Jj watt brings a lot of things beyond what he brings on the field. So bart scott let me come to you. You were live with me when we got the news. Friday right at the end of our show here that. Jj watt was being released by the texans. So much of a chance to talk to you. About what is he now. Jj watt at his best was the best defensive player in the sport. What is he right now. I think he's still like a lower tier like pro bowl player caliber player. He's the guy who can take over games and spot depend on how he shows up. In a week how healthy he continued continues to stay. Maybe needs to call the old. Tom brady and get that up. Tb twelve method. I mean we've seen a consumer play. Well play good football. Well into his Thirties he's thirty four years old watch. Thirty one is going to be thirty two years old. He's still a dominant player. He's a guy that can set the edge. He's he's he has very good scheme. Virtually you know he can play in the three four four three. You know he's still able to lock out and all his arm over. It's still good. I think he's going to be asset to somebody but he can't be your number one pass rusher..

"The whole world was piling on. Mike tannin bound but right now mike t you're laughing last you take no pleasure in this. I don't mean it that way but you were right so as you look at the situation. If you're in charge of this franchise. What are you doing at the quarterback. Well greedy it's significant about this marquees pouncey news Seventy five hundred snaps together and marquees. Pouncey was a problem solver. And i'm not saying that. This is going to push ben over the line to retirement but make no mistake about it. It's pushing him towards that line. Because he knows how hard it is to win without a productive veteran center who could solve problems. So if i'm pittsburgh. I agree with kimberly. I wanted probably speed up this process. I probably can't win with this group this year. I'm far behind cleveland. Baltimore when you look at what's going on in this division. it's literally it's changing overnight and by the way. Cincinnati has joe burrow. So if pittsburgh. And i'm ben. Maybe this is the right time to pull a. Jj watt mutual partying and move on because no doubt about it. Pouncey is a significant step in that direction. Rob niche gets up with us early this morning as well nikko. What do you think from the players side of this. How do you see this from ben's perspective that's a tough loss to digest from the browns and the play offs and i think that he'll play next year football player. You're with your teammates all season. Long you talk you talk during practice. You talk during training camp and you might say hey man. This is my last run this is. This is the last so when they're sitting on that bench and they're both crying together. Maybe they had those talks during the season and ben understood that this is going to be his last game with pouncey because as a player throughout the season there's a lot of communication amongst the players on men. I feel terrible right now. And i'm old and i. I just don't know how much more i can go. So maybe that's why. We saw so much emotion on the bench there. Because ben new this is the last game with pouncey and pouncey new. This is his last game playing. I don't think that ben's going to retire. I don't think he's going to go out that way especially after losing the way that they did. I think he'll be back next year. I think that's what he's gonna antipathy kimberley's point that necessarily in the long term best interests. So mike let me come back to you. Sit and have a mutual parting. If you will it's one thing for. Jj watt and the texans to do that because jj watt can go sign some places situational pass rusher and they're very few situational quarterback in the national football league. If bannon in the steelers were decide to walk away from each other. Is there a market out there for him. Oh absolutely what you think about. All the teams that need quarterbacks and let's go back to the kansas city model which was a couple years ago. Alex smith one for today. We drafted mahomes and develop for tomorrow. So you talk about chicago. Indie even teams like new england. Maybe ben rothlisberger on a one year deal and you draft your starter for two thousand twenty two in this year's draft so i think just based on his track record. He's a lot better than some of these teams current quarterback situation so it could be a win win. Were ben gets a fresh start for year. Philip rivers and then pittsburgh as kimberley said move up there rebuild plan and they take the their starter initiates draft That's a really interesting proposition. Ben rothlisberger quarterbacking. The new england patriots. Next year we'll get to on a little bit lighter. Meanwhile kimberly let's run the hurry up through a fee while they're situations around the league. Let's start with this somewhat.

"There's a lot of issues there. There is it is described as a mass exodus from houston right. now we'll get to one of their superstars who was out the door in just a moment. But you mentioned the steelers. Let's get to them because they may be in line. In this quarterback carousel the big decisions. There are coming quickly speaking of life coming at you quickly. Remember when they were eleven and that feels like about twenty minutes ago but boy has everything changed since then they won just one more game. You saw them lose in the wildcard round. So that's over and it leads to questions about big ben roethlisberger who will enter this age. Thirty nine season do over. Forty one million dollars against the cap and with marquees pouncey now retiring a change in the offensive. Coaching staff. The steelers offensive line figures to look totally different as well next season. Those two guys were great friends. You see the image of them crying together on the bench at the end of their playoff loss. Last year you cannot overstate the impact at marquees. Pouncey had in pittsburgh since two thousand seventeen. You see the numbers. He's one nearly ninety five percent of his pass blocks which is good for third best among centers. there's that side of it and then there's the leadership and all that side of this as well here. And kimberly you're there you were at that game. Where they lost to cleveland and their season was over and the two of them sat there. Ben marquees pouncey. You can't overstate. How close they are. How important is the retirement of pounding. Here to ben's future. it's huge. There was a thought. Pouncey comes back. That would almost assure like okay. Ben definitely gonna come back because why would he want to break in the new center. Why would he want to deal with flux on the offensive line and here we are now. We have to ben if you watched that clip of them he said i feel so bad for you talking pouncey like i. I i to do this for you. Brother they're so tight this the steelers in an interesting position because we figured ben would have played another year. Okay but now there's a lot of change. Now you've got questions about the offensive line. Benz play deteriorated as the season. went on. there's a case to be made. If you take a step back that the steelers might be better off pushing up them. Rebuild plan and rebuild as far as finding the new huby. Finding the new face of the franchise is that a draft. Do they draft a guy in the first round. Do they pick somebody. In the second round that they like do they. You know the qb carousel that. We're gonna see this off season. The steelers a part of that. That's back the interesting thing. Because ben wants to play but do the steelers want benson play for them that that is perfectly framed and that is something that is probably coming to the fore reasonably quickly in montana. I'm going to give you credit. And that's what i meant at the beginning of the show. You said the last time you said he said and we everybody. Mercilessly pounded mike tannenbaum. When you said the steelers will have the fourth best quarterback situation in the division this year and when they were eleven oh..

Oh you was Clayton, Georgia. Stealing hurts out of the game and we're like, okay. First of all, let me back up a second. There's Jalen hurts with an h and then there is Zach ertz with an E. Right? Yep. Yep anouncer needs a charm answers need to make sure they're pronouncing their names correctly because it's really annoying when they're like, well, it's just came out of it and you're like, wait a minute.

"But this this is clearly thing moving forward. So Dallas gotTA is their Second Round Pick Zakar. It's also they're both great talents Dallas. Got Her. Thinks he can be a top five tight end. Right, now is a top five tight end Zach Ertz is paid pretty well, he's paid within that tier. He thinks he might be killed Kelsey Worthy Edano about that. He definitely wants to be paid than Austin. Hooper. They have the same agent, he the the offer that the came back to him with later on from the they altered the November offer it was different and it was lower than Austin Hooper and that really ticked or soft. So they got into a heated argument at practice on the field, a lot of people around and heard that but here's the thing. Has Urgency with wanting to be paid I mean look at it. Now compare them Dallas Qatar eight catches one, hundred, one yards and a touchdown zach ertz three catches eighteen yards, a touchdown and a crucial drop on fourth and three in a big time situation. He is not making that argument any easier the eagles can really only pay one third contracts are up. At. The same time Dallas is making his case to be the guy the future and I think that's how this thing ends up shaking out and he goes don't he goes don't have to pay them right? They don't have to break outta yet yet, and so that is hurting tremendously I think if the eagles are in a back a corner in only had. Of course, he gets paid, but this goes back to being a business. I don't think you could kill the eagles for that either I. Don't think you can what how can they pay him I agree and that's why I certainly agree with the narrative that the eagles are not doing a lot of things to help. Carson. wentz despite the fact that they drafted Jalen Raider but for Carson's career at least, which again is is a bit in the rear view mirror. has been his favorite target, and so the fact that you know now this is the thing with Carson's most trusted weapon is is annoying at the very least but you mentioned the fourth down drop very unlike him you mentioned Austin Hooper those Stanford.

"The eagles also signed to Sean Jackson to a new three-year twenty seven million dollar deal. So Jackson who's been around awhile? He's thirty two years old will turn thirty three during the twenty nineteen season. But west we saw last year that he could still tear the top off a defense in the eagles want that element in their office. We have to worry about a player who's going to be thirty three years. Old in his game is built on speed and nothing else. Just speed. And he's taught us something about quarterbacks in Tampa that he was on fire last year with Ryan Fitzpatrick who has a weak arm, but throws a pretty Deepal. And now he's going to Philadelphia where Nick foles doesn't have the strongest arm in the world. But throws a pretty depot. Carson Wentz has a strong arm and doesn't put enough loft on the ball. So I'm wondering how that connection will work. It's definitely filling a need. Mike Wallace didn't work out in Philadelphia. They need that speed. Gotta stretch to feel it can't work out worse than like Wallace. But they do keep getting older aging deep threats, and it just at some point. If this doesn't work out again, you've got to look at a younger person for that fit. But what I love about this is it just shows you that these NFL feuds die so hard. This felt to me like one final Howie Roseman f you to shift hell. A few. I mean, they've I'm curious if they're going to keep Nelson Aguilar, who's do nine point five million dollars. I have a feeling they might cut or trade him later in this week. He's not really deep threat anyways. And I I hear you long-term west on the Sean Jackson, but for two thousand nineteen I think, that's really all. They're thinking about in the short term. He led the league in yards per -ception. I mean, so he's yards per kick. He's built on speed. And he still totally has it at least in two thousand eighteen it's not gonna last forever. But he has shown no signs of really dropping off. Carson Wentz said a lost year in two thousand eighteen you wanna give him a good team around him to really try to bounce back. He is your guy after all you chose them over Nick foles will now have God. Adding Zach ertz there Sean Jeffrey, not a bad offense. There's Garmendia running back. They look a lot more loaded in the passing game than it did last year. Let's talk about an old face. Mark Antonio Brown. We're going to get to a minute. He left the AFC north. He is now out west. Also joining him in the Pacific time zone, Terrell. Suggs, he leaves the ravens after sixteen years in Baltimore. And he's going to agree has agreed to terms with the the cardinals. He will be outside linebacker. He's working under Vance Joseph three four system. He still seems to have it. He's an old man now maybe slow too little bit. But still can get to the rusher. Still a beast your thoughts in that move. Mark someone to pair with Chandler Jones. It's one of those signings though, where the looking at him in a different uniform. I can't I think the weirdest one for me ever was Peyton Manning. Suddenly in a Broncos uniform took me months to or anyone else's concern. That's my issue recovered. No, I at by the end of the. Preseason. It was like, okay, I get it. But this guy is going to be weird to see in anything other than purple and white. And I find to be. From personal experience of of him on the field after the ravens won the Super Bowl a less than delightful character. But I wish him. Well. Do you do you? I mean, would you be totally cool. And you could say yes, by the way, because thrill suggs, God knows not not the best person you'd be fine. If he's going to have a single second Zona, nobody would fall for it. I'm not going to spend a lot of time with that as my major concern. But I, you know, tease head to find career at this point. He was still playing at a high level last year. It was solid. He's one of those signings and. He went to high school in Arizona..

He was a great pass catcher out of the backfield. You're exactly right. The h back position meant for him bad for him. You're exactly right. I'm thinking right now Zach ertz, you know, he would be a typical H back tight end these days, and he blocked, and he's a fullback and running back. Okay. My third one. And this is what maybe my all time favorite Chicago bear other than you. I. Here's a guy cap Boso cap Boso. That's my that's my favorite Chicago Bears. Well, this guy every game. I watched play. He got into a fight with someone somewhat every other practice. Practice camp. You talk about the true grit, tough guy. He he was offended when someone tackled him. He was he was run the ball Mike, dick when he caught it. I mean, all those clips of. The Monday night game. What into the that that came up with a big piece of sod turf? Entire is were covered with the sod lives down into his helmet peel that off thought it was a touchdown purist. Here's competitors grittiest players ever loved the block love to love to catch and run love to play special teams. And I say he would get tackled, and he was fended that they would tackle him. And he wanted he wanted to fight. Fold up as they say. And now my fourth one Jim Harbaugh watching that tape you have to be as tough as any quarterback that ever played the game. And you never got a roughing the passer. The officials must have thought we cannot now Marino in touch Marino flake came out, you touched any of those those prolific passers during the time. I hit you at knocked teeth out of your mouth in the chest, your spitting blood. I mean, you're on the limping and not I saw one one time through the ball and the guy in the back late, which was probably the softest hit that you took on those on those particular, and how many times third down and nine you would scramble and it came to where the yard marker was if you slide you weren't going to make it you had to go head first and defensive. Boom head to head. They would come down on. You know, no consequence whatsoever in all that. But and the other thing is I would love to know. Love to take on under center and in shotgun. When you in the shotgun, you're passing percentage head to be up in the seventies. When they they didn't do it much except in. Two minute offense third down. They let you do that. And the other times it was always under center, and it was always the same spot. They didn't get you out on the perimeter as much as they could. So so those are my three I had some other things I wanted to say, I didn't think you're going to be here. So I know how modest yard. I don't want to step away. Continue. But. Yet. But I will let you watch those tapes. I I'm so so very proud to be reminded of those great days..

"Why I can relate to that. I feel like a ruin things all the time. Yeah. And it was like this podcast. I do that. Yeah. Thanks. You ruin our podcast. Cou cou why did you wait six hundred eighty nine shows to tell me I could have been out of here. Quick. Look, I don't like conflicts. That's taken. To a new level four year plan getting rid of him. You had too much fun last week. When I missed a show. Those are good show. I'm out sick. You're making your pop and jokes about crab biscuits. Then league. No sense. I went back and watch that not my moment. Jason. Thank you so much for giving him such silence and not playing along. Oh, how how you play. I don't even know that doesn't exist. I was I was out in space trying to swim back to earth. Best part was just Mike his he's so-so disappointed in you for not getting. I was so disappointed in you. And you must be all. Yes. You must have wondered what were you one hundred percent? I knew that. I was at fault. I didn't get I didn't get the reference I'm in India. Oh crap. Is men top men. I don't see. That's one. I don't get. Yeah. All right. Zach ertz number two will look at the truth. Zakar? It's which is pretty nice consistency. Rank of number three. He sustained multiple quarterback. You know, throwing them the ball multiple quarterbacks. Turn on the ball hundred sixteen catches. That's a number one guy right there. Yes. One thousand one hundred sixty three yards eight touchdowns on one hundred and fifty six targets that is the most receptions in NFL history by tight end was pretty good. That's pretty darn good. And I still busted twenty five percent of the time. But good sixty nine percent of the time. Well, in really the the bus if you if you look at when he fell off it was towards the end of the year three of his last four weeks when Carson Wentz was gone. And you know, there was some change over. He had a great week. It wasn't like he couldn't put up great numbers with foale's. He had an unbelievable championship weaken week sixteen. But that gives you a even more confidence going forward knowing that. It's look the the report between Winston hurts us there. And he even further out produced his expected point value over what Kelsey was so you wanna talk better pick. Maybe the best pick at tight end outside of George Kittle was Zach ertz, and this is again, just like you said this. Has years in a row? Now, the big difference..

"Billy was lamenting Billy was lamenting when when the segment started that that the football is all dated around here. And all we've got his else. We've got we got the dolphins getting smoked on Thursday night. The way they always do the hurricanes. Boy, Mike, Mike won't even come out of hiding right after losing the BC. What were we most wrong about their the quarterbacks? I guess the quarterback you could that you could recreate what they did last year. Trying to hide your quarterback for another whole season is the thing that we were wrong about their baffling man, just path. And then the dolphins defense a few weeks ago. We thought the dolphins defense was decent. And now they've just been as bad as defense could possibly be two weeks in a rough the the idea that the Shawn Watson who hasn't looked good this year could dismantle you with twenty passes because you can't stop the run. He couldn't get on a plane before the game he had to take a bus back there because he was so injured and he's still destroyed the dolphins. I love that fourth and short call were Bill O'Brien is so confident at fourth in on the goal line at the one yard line that the play is just the Sean run around back there for a while somebody'll get open Kiko loose somebody in coverage. You know? And I got you know, what I learned last night. This is totally random. I was watching Sunday night football. Kyle Rudolph sneaky good looking. If you're ranking best looking tight ends people. Don't think about how Rudolph they'd think. Kelsey. They think Zach ertz has got good is they don't think how Rudolph. This guy's good looking at right. I was my takeaway. Kyle rudolph. I think of him as looking like a stepfather trying too hard for the approval of the kids just like Greg Olsen. Yeah. No. He does give off some Greg Olsen. But I'm telling he's a top five good-looking tight end. And he doesn't get that respect them. On the poll is is Kyle Rudolph a top five good-looking tight end houses hair right now because I feel like his hairs of made flowing hair. The it's like this longer hair. And I think it's sure I've seen pictures he goes back and forth between short wave, but he's not balding the way Olsen is Olsen seems to be balding. So he he loses some good-looking point. You know, what I also saw last night NBC has this technology ESPN might have too. But I just haven't seen it. They have technology now with kicks. It's like. Thirty seven yard kick. They tell you. How would it would have been good from? That's a cool like this guy for the saints last night made like thirty six yarder would have been good from sixty. You know, it technology. I saw that. It's not as useful. But it was just as fun. It was on Twitter. It's probably not technology. Someone superimposed a beach ball over a baseball. So every time there was a patriot was hit or whatever it was this baseball highlight to the giant beach ball over the baseball. It looks so great. I feel like if that was happening during actual gains. We would love it that is not improving technology. That's somebody just fiddling around on Twitter. I don't know. I don't know. I feel like if we were able to do that in live games. Wouldn't you? Watch more baseball games. If it was a giant beach ball, a hor-, you know, seasonal how about this for Halloween. It could be a Jack lantern. It could be anything. You could change it Christmas tree. Oh Christmas could be the Grinch because you're going to hit Santa clauses face. Obviously, our baby Jesus who would be with a baseball that you're going to have to hit like the Grinch or something bad or presence. This is technology two dollars..
