"I don't turn arms that's been hurt, but if he's out there, he's maybe the best tackle in the game, Connor Williams helps, and we're getting to the quarterback. I get it. There's questions about tua viola rightfully so. But he was in basically the worst possible situation before. He's in basically the best possible situation now. I think that Miami absolutely could surprise a lot of people this season and get into the playoffs and maybe even win some games. Wow. Wow. Excited to see excited to see how this all plays out. If you're a dolphins fan, you gotta love hearing what Tyler Dunn has to say, Tyler. Hey, thanks for taking the time today. It's always good to talk to you. I can't wait to do it again. Appreciate your time. Any day any time, Ryan, but thanks so much and love checking out on the show. All right, Tyler done everybody. Go long, TD dot com. Check out what he has to say. I can't wait to dive into that a little bit later, guys. Miami Dolphins, right? That's the team in the AFC against your patriots. Are they the team that's going to leapfrog them this year? Or all three teams going to be vie for the ASC is brutal. The four teams in the west, the four teams in the north, the three teams in the east. If the people are talking about it, I mean, there's just not enough. That's 11 teams for 7 spots, right? And then also the AFC south has to send a division winner, right? So really there's not, but if see south had the one seed last year. I know. And they're not even, we're not even talking about the talking about them. Like all the cults are going to win the division because they have Matt Ryan and Jack Leonard's awesome and Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman and the everyone loves Frank Reich. Not even talking about the Titans, Derek Henry is back, people. I think the thing that we're not talking about most is the player, maybe in the Santa Fe who's made the greatest just turn around, especially for as far as how he's publicly perceived. And that's Zach Wilson. I mean, I think he might have reached the point where he's ready to leave the jets to some great things, Ryan. That's all I'm saying. Well, just fans certainly hope that the guy who sits in this chair normally really hopes that, right? All right. When we come back, we're going to dive into the PGA Tour and the live tours ongoing feud. I have a few interesting comments about that with Rex hoggard from golf channel dot com. He joins us next here on the rich eyes and show we'll be right back. Welcome back everybody to the rich eisen show, Ryan leaf here filling in for rich our next guest is a writer for golf channel dot com. We're speaking about the PGA Tour, the FedExCup playoffs. It's taken the PGA Tour's very best just to get to this point. Now it'll take more.

"A little rob Johnson Doug flutie quarterback controversy. It's been taking dark turn after dark turning. So Sean McDermott comes in and a fumigate the buildings. They put in their culture, their way of doing things. Everything is so detail oriented where it's down to a T if it's may 17th, let alone October or November. So all that stuff is good, but you're not the underdog anymore. I mean, you're the favorite. You've got the target on your back. You've got the MVP favorite. You have all these weapons. You signed Bond Miller. It is anything less than the Super Bowl. Probably is a disappointment and a loaded AFC. I think they'll handle it well. You know, even though last season edit so abruptly and the head coach really didn't take accountability in the moment, privately or publicly. I think that every year genuinely is a new year, they lost some players. They added some players. And it just does seem like a team in a really good headspace overall. And you can be in a really good headspace when you have the quarterback you do. I mean, he can make a lot of problems disappear. As long as Josh Allen is out there, they should be Super Bowl favorite. Absolutely. Moving around the NFL a little bit, right? The Cincinnati we were just talking about the AFC north and how interesting it is, especially with the deshaun Watson news that's going to come down in a few days in Cleveland. But Cincinnati for an off season where they played in a Super Bowl and we're really a couple plays away from possibly being champions. There really hasn't been much talked about this Bengals team. And I feel like that's a good thing. When it's kind of quiet and guys are just going about their business when big splashes are made, I think people may be trying too hard. What's been your takeaway from this Bengals team and what the offense off season has presented for them heading into year three under Joe burrow? I totally agree with you. It stuns me that we're not talking about this team in this quarterback. I mean, probably a lot of it is the fact that Joe burrow just had the epidemic to me and part of it is history. The last three decades, I believe, are close to three decades, only one Super Bowl loser was able to get back to the game the next year and that was the Patriots with Tom Brady. So you just don't see it. I mean, the Super Bowl hangover is a very, very real thing. But I think it's different here because this is a team that didn't expect anything last year. I mean, they weren't thinking playoffs or not they can Super Bowl. They're just hoping to be relevant and they're kind of signing cast off players, right? Like Mike Hilton and Eli Apple and they're just hoping for the best and as it turns out, Joe burrow is a star. Every young quarterback seems to be skittish and unsure of themselves and afraid of getting hit and not really sure how they're processed and defensive. Well, Joe burrow from day one, he's processing like he's been in the league for a decade. So you have that. You have the report with Jamar chase. I mean, they're making plays out there like there are a couple of veterans. Got that forty-niners play right where Jamar chase is running. We're running one direction in the end zone back line. And brew throws it the other direction and just they both know he's got to get to that pile on. That kind of stuff is rare. I think that this is a team that can get back to the Super Bowl and win the Super Bowl. Because they've got all the ingredients, they're flying under the radar. And that's a gnarly secondary man. I spent some time with those DBs last week in Cincinnati and out of any defense in the AFC. I think that group is most equipped to have a puncher's chance in these shootouts. The news around Mackay beckton, a couple days ago, I think has been more devastating than I think I would have assumed they thought that he was going to be a big part of that anchored offensive line for Zach Wilson in year two. How do you think they address that issue? And move forward this season. That's a huge blow. I mean, what an off season for beckton to go from being out of shape and boy, he caught a lot of flack, a lot of criticism. A lot of justified and seemed to get himself to a really good spot for training camp. And it was really busted, but I mean, this is the kind of player that I think Robert sallow, that's exactly what he's looking for, right? To turn that franchise around is, you know, here's a guy with a ton of talent, a big alignment that you want to run behind. You want to protect your quarterback and he turns it around, he buys into what you're building, and then this happens. It's heartbreaking for him, and it's a huge blow to the team. And I think big picture though, I think the jets are heading in the right direction. I don't think this is a team that's going to be making the playoffs or competing for super bowls anytime soon, but you just hear Robert solid talk at the press conference that he had out of that injury and you can see why guys want to play for him. It's real, it's authentic. It's passionate. It's not fake. You know, he's not standing there and just reading off a teleprompter, like so many head coaches do. I mean, they're still robotic in that setting. I mean, you could just see that the passion out of this guy and that stuff matters. I mean, football isn't played on a spreadsheet. It's an emotional game. And you've got to somehow squeeze every ounce of potential and maximize the potential out of your guys, I think the Robert salad did it in San Francisco as a defensive coordinator and he's going to do it there with the jet because Joe Douglas also had himself one hell of a draft. They might have found four starters in this past draft. The jets are going in the right direction. All right, so Tyler Dunn go long founder. You can catch him at go long TD dot com joining us now NFL writer all right, so we all know who the probable favorites are, what people are thinking. Is there a team a la, the Cincinnati Bengals, who don't make the playoffs, don't even close the year before. They're a team out there this year that you've watched and seen in the improvement with. Get to a place where they could surprise, I'd be a playoff contender come play off time. Right, we shouldn't take this hook line and sinker because we have done it before. I know it. The Miami Dolphins, they go out and they pay a Mike Wallace. They pay it down to consume. Well, I go back to Dante call pepper. Since Dan Reno retired basically, and in 99, I think they made the playoffs next year, but David want to play off games since then. It's been a long, long time, and hey, the no state income tax, the weather, the opportunities down there to tracks a lot of free agents. I mean, a lot of really good players have gone there and it just hasn't worked out. I think it's okay to take the bait this off season. I really do. I think that there is a formula there for the dolphins between a coach or play caller and Mike mcdaniel who is brilliant. I mean, he's going to scheme up all of this talent, all of this speed in ways that we can't even imagine. I mean, you had the two fastest players in the NFL, tyreek hill, Raheem mostert, like literally the fastest next gen stats. And chase said who was unbelievably dynamic with Arizona last year before his ankle injury. And Jalen waddle, who all he did was go for a hundred and a thousand yards as a rookie. And an improved offensive line.

four overtime won the iron bowl at auburn 24 22 Notre-Dame ratted Stanford 45 14 It was Maryland over Rutgers 40 to 16 with a Bloomberg sports update on Frank Aaron I'm Barry ritholtz you're listening to masters of business on Bloomberg radio My special guest this week is Steve Pratt He is the president of Northern Trust wealth management they run about $355 billion in assets Previously he was CFO of all of Northern Trust and has been with the company since 1985 Let's talk a little bit about what you call goals driven wealth management Start out with what exactly is that Sure Goals driven wealth management at Northern Trust is the framework that we've devised to build personalized wealth plans for clients And it focuses on helping them achieve their individual goals with confidence It provides a big picture of their wealth and transparent steps on how to manage and optimize wealth over time So Barry one way to think about it is and I'm being a little bit facetious but just to make the point it used to be in this industry that the starting point for how money might be managed was a function of your outlook on the markets You think equities are going to go up et cetera so you allocate more to equities Goals driven wealth management comes at investing through a different lens The starting point is not so much our call on the markets though that will be important at some point Our starting point in goals driven is what are you and your family trying to accomplish Once we understand what you're trying to accomplish and the assets you need to accomplish it we can in effect back into how to deploy those assets in stocks bonds other asset classes to give you the best probability of achieving your life goals over time So it's really just a different starting point for how to think about creating an asset allocation that is most effective for you and your family So let's talk about that framework And again the question comes back How different is it for the ultra high net worth then for the merely wealthy or is there a lot of overlapping between the two different types of planet The process is really the same no matter where you are on the wealth spectrum You and your family have goals and whether you have a $1 million a 100 million 1 1 billion 10 billion or whatever the number is you have something you want to achieve over time You plan to live to age 90 or a hundred This is what you need to live in the style to which you want to be accustomed And we do a variety of work to figure out first of all are you asset sufficient meaning under reasonable scenarios Do I have enough if I steward it effectively to live my life the way I want to live it over time And that happens whether you have again whatever the number is $500,000 or 10 million The difference comes in with the flexibility and options that you have as you create more wealth So the starting point is the same Understand your goals understand your needs and let's figure out an asset allocation to give you the best chance to get there What becomes different for people in the ultra high net worth space relative to the rest of us is that they can take advantage of more planning techniques They can take advantage of more techniques to optimize philanthropy They can take advantage of gifting to future generations and so forth And so the process is the same but as you accumulate more money in general you have more flexibility on some other things you can do One of the things that I kind of knew but I didn't realize it was this intense was the number of clients you see relocating to new states It's been a record volume Some of that's pandemic related Some of it predates the pandemic How does that challenge the planning process How different is it from state to state when it comes to things like tax planning You mentioned trust you mentioned philanthropic issues What happens when somebody picks up from one state in relocates to another state Clients relocating has always been with us If you look at Northern Trust history So one phenomenon we've always seen is migration from state to state That phenomenon is also impacted by state tax rates by a state tax considerations And so both because of the pandemic and for tax reasons and lifestyle reasons were continuing to see movement across state lines And so I think the message to urban planners is taxes do matter to people It's not necessarily the only factor But even affluent people will think through where do they want to be where do they want to live What environment do they want to be in And what's the tax impact for their.

"In love with the process. They love love getting better and I am really, really confident. Zach Wilson is going to be a star someday in the NFL. I don't know when he's going to pop, there's going to be a moment where he breaks through and becomes more consistent. I don't know when that moment's gonna happen, although I look at this Atlanta game in London coming up week 5. I'm like, oh, is that Wilson? Can I have a great game again this week? So just keep your eyes open, Zach Wilson is a guy who, again, I don't know when it's going to turn a corner at some point, and he's going to have performances like he had against Tennessee every week. And when that moment's coming, but if there's one guy in this draft class in 2021, it could become like an Aaron Rodgers level quarterback. Exactly the jets quarterback. And I think man, Sam darnold's doing well with Carolina, but in my opinion, the jets upgraded at quarterback by moving on from Sam darnold and bringing in Zack Wilson. I feel that good about him, and I have no problem making predictions if I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but I look at everything Zack's doing too much talent and too much work ethic to fail in my opinion. Okay. We have reached NFL week 5. And there are ten games. Therefore, ten storylines, I can not wait to see play out this weekend. Number one is this. The packers at the Bengals in Cincinnati Paul Brown stadium, look, Green Bay probably wins this game. Both teams are three and one though. And I think it's just going to be a blast to watch. Aaron Rodgers and Joe burrow sharing the field on a Sunday. It's gonna be really fun. We're gonna see a lot of great throws all over the field, points, fun, amazing throws, great quarterback play. This is a game that I don't again I think the packers win, I think they are a better football team here. Although maybe the Bengals shocked the world, they're not the Bengals are trending upward, although again, I am picking the packers to win the football game. But my prediction here like the one thing I will commit to in this game, I believe it's going to be a really fun game to watch. And that's most important if you're a football fan, you just want pleasure and enjoyment and having a good time watching football and this game, packers at Bengals, I think is gonna give us that high level quarterback play if you love quarterback play. Watch the packers at Bengals during NFL week 5. Game number two, the Broncos at Pittsburgh. It looks like Bronco's quarterback teddy Bridgewater is going to pass concussion protocol will play and going to start the game. And okay, Denver, prove it. He started a three O, I heard how great you were. I was on the, I was like, I'm riding the train with all the fans. I'm like, okay, let's see. Let's see.

"And that rhymes, I was gonna say game, but Matt dae had a terrible day sounds kind of fun to say, he missed an extra point. And then he had two kick-offs that went out of bounds. And it's rare to have even one kick off go out of balance, let alone two and one game and it got so bad. I literally joked my fiance watching with me, I'm like, does Matt gay owe money to the mafia? Does he have some weird side bet going on? I just think he really had a bad night, but I can't say enough how bizarre it is to watch an NFL game. And see the ball get kicked out of bounds. I kick-off is not once, but twice. It's like, wow. Wow. Is this high school football? What's happening here? Bizarre. Anyway, I walked away from Thursday night's game, I feel terrible. I feel terrible and terrified for Seattle. Russell Wilson's injury is a disaster for them. Their seasons ruined. I mean, I would be if Gino Smith can go on a run and then Russell comes back and they win from maybe maybe that will happen, but that feels like just wishful thinking. I think unfortunately, losing your Hall of Fame quarterback for 6 weeks when you really heavily rely on him to win. It's over. The sex season is over. They're going to miss the playoffs. It's going to be an ugly end of the year. And I feel bad for their fan base. And the rams, again, they're forward one, but it's a really ugly four in one. And maybe they're still figuring things out. They got a new quarterback like, I want to give them benefit of the doubt. But I'm cooling on the ramps. The more I watch, the more I'm like, oh, that defense ain't what it was. And Matthew Stafford's making mistakes and like context does matter and don't just look at their win loss record. Look at how they've won games. A lot of them have been ugly, a lot of them have had some bad mistakes and bad issues and like for example, Gino Smith were touched on a DK Metcalf and it was just terrible coverage about the ramps like the rams corner, after his name, young guy, in position to make a play, and he just doesn't make a play on the ball, and you're like, well, that's awful. And that's not good coverage. No offense to Gina Smith that shouldn't have been a touchdown. It's not like a amazing throw. It's just kind of a average lob to the end zone. And the rams corner just doesn't even make a play on the football. And you're like, oh, that's a horrible coverage. Bad coverage, some bad defense. Matthew Stafford's missing throws left and right to people who are open on third down and should be touched down. You're missing too many opportunities. And it's not like the rams can't clean it up. But I do have to acknowledge when I watch film of the rams. I'm like, a lot of missed opportunities. A lot of bad plays. A lot of ugly football. And I don't know, man, I just will see how far this rams team can go. They went all in on a Super Bowl. They traded for Matthew Stafford. They traded for Sony Michelle. They are trying to make a run, but if these mistakes don't get cleared up for the rams, they're going to come back to haunt them, and they are not going to be a Super Bowl team come the end of the year. Okay, let's shift New York. I want to talk about Zach Wilson. Last week against Tennessee jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson had the very best game of his short NFL career..
The Zach Wilson Era Is off to a Disastrous Start
"So let's talk about zack wilson. Because you mentioned him and watching him lose twenty five to six at home to the patriots and bill ballot check and bill. Bella check destroys rookie. Quarterback's he consumes them. He picks their bones. That's all stuff that we know already cleans. His teeth with the bones of rookie quarterback is what he does but we saw jets fans alex. You know throwing in the towel and it's week two. And i say that because they were literally throwing souvenir tales from the stands. And zach wilson. The four picks. I'm curious about climbing into your memory bank here because what do you. Alex smith remember about playing the colts back in two thousand and five pablo. I've definitely tried to forget this one all right but we're good. I do remember my first career. Start the number one defense at the time and like the colts were in their heyday. Payton was rolling. But that defenseman dwight free robert matt Bob sanders. i mean it was. It was a joke and yeah. It's all a terrible blur for me. Like four picks i think my rating was it like it was a disaster but i think that was a clear design i was i just turned twenty one. I mean i played only two years in college in a spread system now trying to plan their center. Probably this become this pro quarterback whatever that is and It was not good. I was definitely i. I felt unprepared. And it was a disaster and it showed. You've been a guy who had a four interception game really early after being a top. Pick your the number one overall pick of course. What do you counsel him. Hypothetically what do you stay to him after a game like this if you were to visit him. Alex smith kind of like a ghost of christmas future. What do you. What do you tell a kid who's very talented but also just had a day like this. I think exactly that. I mean i think you gotta go like for me. I just go to the third and fourth picks that he grew and pause before the snap and look look like jack. It's ten to three on this one. It's in the third quarter we got. There's a ton of football left. There's no reason to throw this ball up The way he did and then even the second one in the fourth grade. I mean i think it was thirteen to three. At that point. There is still time. Left like again I think going back to just doing your
Weekend Prop Bets: Sam Darnold
"Let's jump right into is one of my favorite roberts heading into this weekend. And that is sam. Darnold over is passing yards. Nothing has been posted yet. I'm sure we can close to kick off. It will be posted but man. You know a lot of people i think. Sleep on sam darnold because just the raw deal that he got here in new york. But i just i love. I love his offensive coordinator. I love that rule. The head coach. He's playing behind better offensive line he ever had here in new york with jets. You've got a plethora of talent to work with in on top of that this week. He's gone up against a gaggle rookie corners to sophomore quarters. And here's another thing a not a number all then were have not been drafted. We're not drafted higher than the fifth round. I mean i think sam darnold it could be a sneaky. Good play not just in the That world but in dfs as well. So i love. Sam darnold i also love. I think he's going to connect with robbie anderson don't forget robbie anderson or her jet as well two of them gonna wanna take it to the jets. Got ravi anderson scored a touchdown plus one ninety and also men the jets. They're just a complete mess. Jamison crowder's out. I think. Zack wilson is going to struggle. So i like under in passing yards for zach wilson in this

"I don't define great like you might define great everybody in great to me. He could be a really good quarterback in the nfl. There's only a handful of great people and great players in the nfl. But we throw great around like we throw super bowl championships. Around like the eminem's everybody's gonna win the super bowl. No it doesn't everybody's not going to be great and that's okay but he is going to be an nfl starting quarterback more than serviceable in his career in the national football league. What wilson ceiling on the market. That's why when he was on the market there were several teams trying to figure out how to get the guy. And what do you think. Zack wilson ceiling is. I don't know played a preseason. I saw him at byu. He was streaky at the y. You when he was healthy and darnold college when he was healthy to i. Let's be honest. i do believe wall street. Ceiling is higher than say. Come on man. He was streaky and college. He to a lot of interceptions in college that all that i wouldn't call that streaky. I taught i call that taking risks to fill in like your arm. It's strong into defenders is. That's what it was. Only losing streak. Production pd believes sam darnold serviceable if they put the right pieces around him in carolina. Kenny win the super bowl. This will tell you a lot about sam donor because they got some pieces. When you gotta mccaffrey in a rally anderson yeah you got a few law. Got a little nuggets. That he didn't have in three years with the new york jets. So this will tell you a lot. About what sam is of course. We don't have all the way through. We don't have all the evidence or the information. She makes very informed opinion. You that's my you. My suspicion is because we're making a prediction about the upcoming season that darnold as a four a quarterback that means in a very good situation. He could be okay. I don't see them being a standout at quarterback based on what i've seen so far in the nfl. And you can even go back to college where i had higher hopes and you can say well because he thinks this or that. He was streaky. He did throw interceptions in college. When i look at zach wilson. Maybe it's because it's a cleaner slate but to me to my i. It seems like the guy has more arm talent more ability to make those please where you go. Whoa no by the way of all the rookie. Quarterback's his performance in the preseason was way way up there. There's a reason. But i can gain plan for you to be successful in a preseason. I could game plan for on this show for you to be successful or i can gain plan for you not going to be successful. That is the way it works in professional sports. If i want you to succeed in the preseason all i gotta do game plan and you'll succeed you'll succeed just like that much like i told everybody on our show prior to joining us. Watch what happens in this particular game for mac jones. You watching gain three how much success. He's going to have because guess what we're doing word games. He planning to get ready for the season. And when you gain plan to get ready for something. I know what the defense is setting so now i can gain plan to attack defense much like we saw. Zach wilson their gang. Planning to keep him to make him successful. It wasn't vanilla. They didn't just run a bunch of hitches and slants. that's typically what you do in preseason but when you start seeing things like deep crossers in things of that nature like francisco de trae land. They game plan for trae lance to be successful when he was in doing the preseason all part of he can we talk about the game plan just for one second. I know we're going to bring in paul here but this is why i expect big things from sam this year to a degree. The system is a variation of sean. Payton's offense right. I mean there are a ton of its. Qb friendly vertical routes like high low concepts like dj more another step robbie anderson. We talked about that. Marshall gives them a jump ball threat at the opportunity. Is there for him to take that leap. I never questioned the talent quest key. Who was the who was the guy. Coaching the talent. And i don't care what anybody says when you're around inept coach on a day to day basis is hard to find out who the hell you i hear you. He was dead last in almost everything. But i hear you paul finebaum host of the paul finebaum show that you can follow at finebaum f. i n. e. b. a. Um for anyone interested the paul finebaum show weekdays at three p m eastern on the sec network and of course the espn app. Paul paul darnold quarterback goes move onto the next topic. Then i'm just kidding. I i just caught the tail and i just wanted to jump in and have some fun with you. Guys wait is wonderful to be automatically. Poll talk about that. Who who do you project to be better sam. Darnold or act wilson. I i do like sam darnold. I agree with your point a minute ago. I think he's really when you're with a an empty suit as your coach. It's going to be difficult to to progress. I like where he is right now. I think he's joe. Brady and matt rule and i expect big things out of him. But what do i know. I'm just I'm just. I'm just talk. Show host for sure. Paul paul a bryce. Young's debut against miami has vowed just about everybody right. What did you see. I was surprised he was that good. I mean i. I knew what everyone had been saying about him. I saw him a couple of times last year. Maximum and i will go back to july or august of twenty and there were some people thought he could. He could beat out mack jones. That's what type of talent he he brought from from southern california but it just didn't seem like he he could play this. Well now. you know miami is. It's not a not a lower division team. They were ranked in the top twenty but but he made he made them look stupid. And i think he's going to make pretty much everyone else. Look silly this year as well. He just has so much poise. He doesn't have quite the compliment around him. That jones had a year ago. But it doesn't matter. He's got confidence he's got. He's got the ability to see the field. He did not make too many. He made a few mistakes. Early on news with a little bit jumpy. But after that he played flawlessly. So paul alabama actually reloading again. How how does saving keep doing at this level like we. We have to play this game the other day. Say what's what. What's one word you think about when you think about alabama and i just said acronym. Nfl i mean it's it's like an nfl franchise. That's what it reminds me of it does. If you try to compare it to to college. I would go back to something that you're familiar with where you have a dynasty at a place like duke in basketball and the great players gravitate college college. Football right now has shrunk to just a handful of teams. And if you're a five-star from california miami the mid west. You only look at these schools. You don't you don't look. Maybe where your dad played you..

"Look pay oregon. Dr no no. I was not gonna pay sam darnold but it was. You were running up on his fifth year. Op thank you you're conflicted. You have a lot of decisions that you need to make in order to make your roster to build your team and you said to yourself. I'm not going to decide to pick up a fifth year option if he goes out there and he rips it up now. I got a long term. Extend him at this number. That's not going to allow us to maybe get some of the players or re-sign some of the guys that we wanna re-sign is going to kind of put a stranglehold on what we're capable of. That's all that's fine. That's all fair. That's those those are that's right. I understand that analysis. What is sam darnold do. Or what is he done in the nfl. So far that would make you or anyone think he could be a star. Let alone a good quarterback matt now discounting his very bad situation. I get that no ought to counting us saying what has he done right. but what does he like. You had to sign something at this point that would make you think that really stands out. This guy is going to be a high average. At least nfl quarterback you never saw glimpses of sam darnold where you're like damn in the right. That's why i just got way man. You gotta watch for those games. His ceiling is pretty high. When you see those glimpses again. I do think you're discounting to a pretty high degree who he was surrounded with you know. He was the first non veteran quarterback that adam gates has ever had that don't guys for example as a giants fan daniel jones. Daniel jones is not a solid quarterback at the moment. But i've seen enough from him to think if he was in the right situation. Maybe the average high average. But i've also seen enough to know. That's not a great quarterback. Do you look at sam darnold and think he can be a great quarterback in the nfl. I think a great quarterback in the nfl depends on what you define as great see. I don't define great like you might define great everybody in great to me. He could be a really good quarterback in the nfl. There's only a handful of great people and great players in the nfl. But we throw great around like we throw super bowl championships. Around like the eminem's everybody's gonna win the super bowl.

"The jets and panthers squaring off this week. Here's the question key. I know you have an opinion about this shocking key. As an opinion when we're sitting back at the end of the season looking back at this year. Who are we going to say. Got their quarterback decision. Right the jets or the panthers. Well is he boycotting the show. I told i had an opinion. So i figured i wouldn't say anything. Oh i see proof disproving opinion yes that is contrary want key to go left saying you go right. I like to do to people anyway. Make going and i always go left What one of the things in this situation is the panthers. They're gonna get the at the end of the season. We look up. They're going to have the best quarterback and it's not because of anything other than you got a young guy who's yet to play a regular season game in the national football league and new head coach. New offense coordinator who still trying to learn to become a coordinator and a head coach. Where the guys in carolina have a few years underneath their bill. So i think in in the end they'll put sam in the best position to be successful. He's got a running game. He's got some receivers. He's got a solid defense now whether or not they get up to speed at the level that which they need to compete. That's something else to be seen. I heard mark speir say. He hoped that he throws about three fifty and four touchdowns i hope he throws for about two seventy five it about sixty yards rushing two touchdowns in the air two touchdowns on the ground no interceptions and no fumbles. That's what i hope. Jay sam darnold right now is probably in the best position to succeed. But i i gotta tell you man watching the infrastructure that's being built around the jets. I like how they're going about it. And from what i've seen in preseason tackles and i know it's preseason but when i talked to guys like tony romo and he gloats about zack wilson. Tony romo knows something about quarterbacks. As much as we joke around danner laskey studies film every single day. I see it. He knows something about quarterbacks. And i think the potential and i'm not saying that sam darnold the potential because i think obviously his tenure with the jets made you lose sight of his potential but just seeing a way to jets are going about. It was also. I think the potential there long-term has a chance to be something very very special. I i look. I think. Zack wilson has a chance to be a special quarterback. I don't think that about sam darnold and key. I think there's a tendency to like like you know. Hey quarterback dependent the situation. What surrounds you your coaching. Of course of course it does. Of course it does but split but it also depends upon a talent of the dude right zach darnell has i think i didn't even want. I was the sexiest man. I'm sorry darnold. Sam darnold to me may be in baseball. It's called a four a player if you look at dudes aaa stats. They translate pretty well to the majors right but some dudes for whatever reason. It doesn't quite translate to the majors. Maybe they'd go play in japan and they can tear it up there because it's the because what they have translate to four a which doesn't really exist. Sam darnold to me. Maybe a great for a quarterback. I don't know that he'll be a great. Nfl quarterback. i thought when he got drafted a chance to be a good one for a while. But what i've seen is not that i know. He checks a lot of boxes but does he check them at a high enough enough level. I've seen that. Wilson do things on youtube in college right and even in. Preseason zach wilson. Do things where you go. That's a little differently. Talented key your shit. You're smacking your head like no no. It's not that you don't think. Zack wilson is differently. Talented than than darnold. you think. They're similarly talented sam donaldson so much more. Talented than zach wilson. In what way a lot of ways. He's bigger he's more athletic hit. This was an all state basketball player in high school. What do you mean youtube video. Max you can go pull youtube videos osaman high-school college in amazing things that he short stint with the check. Your those sirens like he's about to get pulled over for blatant khomeinism he's about to get pulled over for blatant homers about home homer ism. It's about knowing what i'm seeing in understanding what i'm seeing. You have a quarterback that was in a situation with adam gates for crying out loud like give me a break. Here has more arm talent. Darnold or zach wilson. I think wilson. Oh arm talk. I'm agreeing with you with you on your side. You'll see hold on one thing. Y'all think another. And that's all. I agree with you on. I'm not with macs. On the fact. That sam darnold is a four a quarterback. I do think there's only a few a slight you players. In the history of all sports regardless of the coach regardless of the gm regardless of the owner they can exceed exponentially. Not darnold right. Now there are. Some guy has a better foundation right now. I think being established by the jets thus far than what sam darnold had into i agree on listeners size but there's a reason the from darnold and used the dre only donald because they were conflicted on what to do max okay. What was the constitution. What was the conflict is. Here's a guy. I got a new head coach coming in i. I did not draft this guy. As a general measure would tell you joe douglas. We given him an opportunity to chance. They paired him would coach. That was incompetent in adam case. Why ever he was hired in the first place. I'll never know sure but when you look at it you say to yourself fresh start. We can't afford to bring a new head coach here in. Try it all over again when we have five quarterback sitting on the board with the number two pick. We've gotta move him right now unless book on lenox solid or whoever came in identifies the guy they already have none. No no i like that guy. I want to keep that guy. Look pay oregon. Dr no no. I was not gonna pay sam darnold but it was. You were running up on his fifth year. Op thank you you're conflicted. You have a lot of decisions that you need to make in order to make your roster to build your team and you said to yourself.

"zach wilson" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"How do i know that. Because if patrick mahomes didn't win he would be matt stafford crazy talented big stats massive arm. And we'd never talked about him. Quarterback is about winning jameis winston through for five thousand yards and thirty three touchdowns what at tampa do sia. He went seven and nine. Nine seven brady does not end up in tampa. You watch matt stafford this year. He's past his prime. This is year thirteen. He's not in his prime. We've never put in top ten. We don't even talk about him. He is going to be an every single top. Ten list by the end of this year. is it. because he's better. is it because statute explode. No it's because he'll be winning. Give you an example. I like derek carr derek cars last two years. He has carried the raiders. And they're horrible. Defense look at these numbers the last two years for derek carr. they're insane. He completes sixty nine percent of his throws his touchdown to interception ratio is insane forty eight to seventeen his passer rating over one hundred. And when i suggest. He's a top ten quarterback. You mock me you crush me. You destroy me. Why because he doesn't win. Zach wilson has no chance to be a top three quarterback in the next two years. Here's what would have to happen just in his division. Forget about justin. Herbert forget about patrick. Mahomes josh josh. Allen lamar jackson baker. Mayfield to all these afc quarterbacks. We like forget about this guys for him. In the next two years to be a top three quarterback he'd have to win. So that means josh. Allen would regress badly. The miami situation would have to regress badly quarterback everything i mean. They won last year with ryan fitzpatrick to new england. Mack jones implodes folks when you finish third or fourth in division. You are not a top quarterback. The only reason we have mahomes one is because he wins gets two super bowls. I mean there's a lot of people out there that would tell you to shawn watson and lamar way more athletic than mahomes. Aaron rodgers throws a slicker ball. Brady's more efficient mobile homes super bowls. He's the best. Come from behind quarterback in the last couple of years in the nfl. Maybe one of the best. I've ever seen and so. This has nothing against tony romo. I like him. But zac wilson has the worst coach in his division and the worst roster the afc. East has never had better coaches. That i can recall. Flora's mcdermott bella. Check a plus so love. Tony romo but that's not going to happen. That's that's not baseball where you can bat three forty four lousy team and we write columns about you. That's not what we do in football. Football is about winning. Brady doesn't have the biggest arm. He's not the biggest quarterback. He's not the most athletic. He's not the bet he wins the most. That's why it's the go joe. Montana was not as talented..

"No no let's go to baltimore's us. We just did new england and we had a spirited conversation about that but this one this one though is a conversation that's actually was started here at espn by jeremy. Fowler and involves lamar jackson and whispers that jeremy fowler said. He's been hearing around the league about lamar jackson now. Fowler of course are espn senior nfl. Reporter said this on. Get up in the idea of lamar jackson in person. It's on him because he's now another guy up for a contract extension but what. He says about what he's hearing around. The league about him is the most interesting. There are a lot of people around that i speak to are talking a little slick. They say this might be the year that everybody figures out. Lamar jackson like there's sort of that feeling right now. He can definitely prove that wrong. But i think it was a little pressure on him right now. He doesn't have to deal. Either people around the league think this is the year they figure him out so of course we now go to lamar jackson to ask him. If he thinks that defenses are figuring him out playing football. We don't see but i doubt it. I doubt play ball. That's a great response guys. I doubt it dude. I doubt it. This guy was an mvp just a couple of years ago and now there's talk that the league would probably have him figured out and he's not the guy you thought it was actually saying. We got a call earlier from somebody who feels like yeah. He's a great athlete. And all but buzzword if you if you take you know what the deal is in the league. He can't do anything against them any points to the playoffs. Sam what are you seeing. Lamar jackson has the league. Figured him out. There's nothing bigger out about lamar jackson. You can't figure lamar jackson out in two thousand nine hundred. He was the mvp he threw. He threw for thirty six touchdowns he threw for over three thousand yards so when it comes to throw in the ball you can't figure about when it comes to like trying to tackle him if you want use the buzzword of an athlete trying to figure that out you just be faster athletic as defensive coordinator. There's number one number two. Greg roman like anything you need to figure out greg. Roman offense coordinator. It's not about a quarterback. It's about coordinator as well. And so i love the mark jackson's response. He said i strongly and people been down the mark jackson forever right. I remember when he got drafted thirty. Second overall right ravens traded backed up to pick them. What did he say. That does my favorite moment of the drafting left. Pipe three or four years. He said i'm gonna make them eat their words. I'm gonna make them so all the people that got to figure it out. Just watch the games. Just wait lamarcus. Make everybody their words. And that's the crazy part right because you understand at this. Offense is only going to get better with jay diamonds taking the next step and understand it and now they have women outside well. he can't throw the ball side. Well how they were bronze like five foot. Nothing man do a little catch. Radius hasn't been ever create separation now he has receivers. That may not be create separation from your baby running past people at sammy. Watkins used to be one of the fastest players. They have huge catch radius. So it's a margin era doesn't have to be as accurate that way as well and the thing is nobody dictates coverages more than lamar jackson. You better put that aikman man in the box because the running game deadly so that's going to give you one on ones outside of number. He has guys that can take advantage of it in greg romney. Somebody that can evolve is offense right. He was there when i was there. Used to run coordinator jamal jamal. Lewis ran for two thousand yards but then he looked what he did with colin kaepernick. Now he's going to have an opportunity to think at a different level layer to this office that he didn't have A disposed because he didn't have the outside webs that can win and dominate. These ones already know what. Mark andrews is in between the hash. This team's gonna put so much stress on you from a defensive standpoint that you don't know what to do. He's better than michael vick because he can't throw the ball. We know he knows the playbook but also he's a guy. That's a little bit more accurate in michael vick. So let me ask you a question so. Nfl dot com has our top one hundred this season lamar jackson number twenty four in that division. Where each each team has a quarterback certainly That would be considered a franchise quarterback youngest being well not youngest by age. Maybe but the youngest. Lisa experienced this show borough to only fabio rookie. Where where would you put. Where would you put. Lamar jackson among the four quarterbacks in the afc north. I would put lamar at one or two. I wanted to think he's above baker. I think he's above joe. I'm still super high. On ben rothlisberger based off a history. But i put lamar out one. Put him at one. I put him at one. But here's the reason why like three things number one. I say this remember what you do. In december like in december one eight counts lamar jackson winds right and the ravens win. They're fourteen and one in the last five games seasons fourteen and one in those games so they know how to win two years ago. Two thousand eighteen twenty nine hundred was twelve game winning streak ri- out twenty eighteen twenty twenty nineteen they want like five out of their last seven and then last year one five of the last six so they know how to win what counts and lamar knows how to win. Win win accounts. I like baker. Pull them above him. I pull the mara. Borough also basically because the system as well greg roman I still like ben rothlisberger. That's the thing people sleeping on. Ben rothlisberger then last thing to just tobacco. What bart said because made the best point anyone's made they've got the number one running attack number one. The last year's raymond south of the number one writing attack number one number two they draft talent wallace air rashad bateman baller receivers. We're going to be great weapons for baltimore. So there's no figuring out tomorrow states got onto pot and beat baker. Mayfield do that. They're you know taking care of ourselves. We got always four dollars round way. Never great start on the clock. Today this was a lot of fun coming up a big surprise born. nfl gm. that's coming up next..

"Because he doesn't use that phrase but it sounds like that's what he says the numbers come back to the means. So is this once again. You second guess. Brian cashman but you. Don't you give them enough time. Which the yankees always do. It ends up coming back to. The mean is that just another example of his. Brian cashman deserve more credit. Than maybe we're ready to give him. Yeah i think so. because You know the fact that you know. He didn't fire coaches right. Didn't fire the manager. He basically said no. Here's what we see. Here's what we saw. This offense led the majors and run scored from two thousand seventeen to two thousand twenty. In the first half of the season they had head-scratching performances all over the place. I had one person the organization run through lineup for me one day and say you know what eight of the nine guys have underperformed and we think that they'll turn that around. That's what they trusted. And on top of that i you know at this point part. Brian's if you say one of the best parts of his resume right now would be. It's ability to make traits into see spot and say okay. We're gonna go for it. I really feel like the mets weren't first place. They defend their position. It first place before the trade deadline the red sox in a word first place in the american league east they were the least aggressive the fourteenth contenders in the division. We're on the other hand. Brian cashman had very little room under the under the competitive balance tax and yet. He figured out a way to make deals for anthony. Rizzo getting the cups to pay salary in for joey gallo and restore balance the lineup and restored the death. I do think he deserves. Credit is crazy right he has seemingly had no money no moves and he just got other teams. They'll take on mentioned getting those two lefties which was the most important part of getting some lefty power. Boy we sam boyd is came and say he deserves to play. He put his andy dalton moment unless he showed up. Let's see let's see if the yankees can't get themselves back in that conversation for championship. Meanwhile in bart's hometown of detroit. You have miguel cabrera hitting five hundred home runs and i remember a time buster and we're about the same age remember time we're five hundred home runs. That was like a. I mean that was a historic milestone baseball. Because it just weren't that many guys that got to that point. And i are we just under selling it or we'd we not celebrating it. Enough is now well if he gets it three thousand his well then now. That's a bigger deal because there's less people who've done it is five hundred is five hundred home runs what used to be in major league baseball. No the sarah changed all that. You know it used to be that you had. What twelve thirteen guys. Who had hit five home. Five hundred home runs into a special club and that number doubled in the span of about fifteen years because You know the players You know that they're just massive Pd use and so the numbers. I think lost some of their majesty And let's face it because cabrera has faded Toward the end of his career here in recent seasons i think that also took some luster off. It's not like you spreading through the finish line He's had some real struggles. The tigers haven't been playing that well and look. He's going to get three hits next year. He's gonna hit that milestone and farda eight to say to you. I think you're gonna see Sort of a similar muted reaction I think the one thing that would help it would be if he had a resurgence at the beginning of next year and and went out Flying and if the tigers were in serious contention. American league central. I think that would change a lot of the optics of making towards the end of his career but look he's one of the best right handed hitters of all time. Molina coming back for another year. I mean nobody likes to have these farewell tours but one of the greats obviously in cardinals history one of the greats at that position as a catcher. Just him coming back. What does that mean for the cardinals. What does it mean for him. And how will baseball celebrate him. Yeah guys last winter. When he was a free agent camp was making noises about well he might sign with other teams. You remember. There was that one day when he was linked to the yankees And i can tell you this folks with other clubs like gain ever leaving the carcass like he's a legacy player with the cardinals. He's gonna be elected the hall of fame on the first ballot He he used to baseball. What i think of Not being a non football guys dion sanders was the nfl. He was a shutdown. is they shut. Shutdown catcher. in the way that you know dion sanders took away one. Half of the field durell rivas took away one half of the field Had a defensive impact that No other catchers had in terms of limiting the running game in terms of coaxing pitchers through is an absolute icon among catchers in baseball. And yeah. it's going gonna come back for another year. He's not gonna pass anybody on the all time list of Games play for catchers but if he plays all next year and then signed another one year deal then the next year. he's going to hop over some all time. Great names like karl fist..

"They're right in the prime of the careers of garrett cold and giancarlo stanton and they got aaron judge but this year for next year and then he is free agency. So they're going to take a run at it but team being able to keep on track in played baseball. Play up to the expectations that we had for coming into this season. If the yankees don't go to the world series it's failed season. Anything short of the world through that they failed. Season is always the talk when it comes to the yankees. The dodgers well but failed season. But if you don't would it is right now. This is my favorite segment as my doubt. We like both blacks buzz. What did baby. The yankees your hotline. By the way. I understand buster as you know from when you've been on our show with myself He's been awhile since. I've actually worked together and hosted together because i've been helping out filling in on the morning show and it's just he. He's so excited that it's like having like a kid with you in the car and they just won't stop and you're just trying to get to the destination and he just keeps grabbing the wheel so as you know. It's always a lot of fun but -buster let me let me ask you about the yankees. Win eleven enroll and there's a lot there but last night's game in atlanta was certainly an interesting one on several levels. Before we even get to what happened in the ninth and more those issues for the yankees. There was a huge play in the fifth inning and involve freddy freeman involved. Where it would have been at the time. A tying run. It was a terrific throw. Sanchez makes the gary sanchez. The yankees catcher makes the tag called out. They go to review and boy. I'll tell you what when you watch review was hard to believe that. That really look like he was safe. That he beat the throw or beat the tag i should say but he had. He ended up being called out a critical play at the moment and the braves certainly were frustrated by. What did you see there. Yeah i never reminds you of the adjustments they need to make with replay Wants to get into this off season and they In our having like bargaining talks and all the cards that go around it I i really believe this that. If you were to you know tell empires to sit in a room one hundred umpires and say hey we want you to make this call cold with no sound and not knowing what the actual call was ninety. Nine out of one hundred would call them safe. I mean that's to me when you look at the replay is how How it is but you know under the the current rules. The system you know major league baseball asked the empires and the replace center. Look you know. I if you see enough to overturn the call. That's cool too. And i i think they've sort of twisted themselves up knots with that sort of definition earlier. In the year there was a controversial play coincidentally in atlanta coincidentally one against the braves alec. Boehm of the phillys was called safe. And when you look at the replay You know he he was out and i remember talking to a major league baseball official and ask the rationale for why they made the call the way they did and when i got back was there's no evidence that you know that he didn't touch home plate and i made me scratch my head. I'm like no. There's no evidence that he did. Touch home plate i still haven't seen a replay actually touch. Don't play so. I think they have to send the replace back to new york. And just tell the umpires look Forget what the umpire in the field call. You make the call as you see it in front of you. And they say. I think any empire saw that call last night. What he said. No freddy freeman was safe. That looked like and it's like you know you think about replay in the purpose of replays because we understand how difficult it is for umpires in bang bang place to be able to get right and the whole thing for replay for them to be able to get it right so the right play. Call because you don't want a competitive advantage but it seems like they don't wanna show each other up and if it's not super definitive i i don't know what is going to change it but i'll tell you what man i'm looking at the yankees eleven straight not done since one thousand nine hundred eighty five once again. When i'm thinking i'm out i'm like okay. Man i done. They draw me back in right but what other realistic expectations is. This a team. That can win. The division may go to the world series. But can they win it. Because i see a lot of deficiencies if anybody saw the knife any just last night yes They absolutely can as we sit here today. You can paint a reasonable path for them to get to the world series and in a seven game series with the depth of that lineup. You know beat. The dodgers are beat the giants or beat the team that comes the brewers. The team that comes out of the the national league There's no question those two trades. They made it the deadline for anthony. Rizzo joey gallo. Restored the vision of what they wanted. This offense to be. Which is this real attack. That wears out opposing pitchers and builds at margin prayer for other issues at the yankees. Might have the twenty one at four since gallo joey gallo and anthony rizzo joined the lineup. They have a much more balanced lineup. They are averaging four point. One pitches per plate appearance. I mean they are just grinding out these at bats and they're beating teams. They do have to figure out the back end of their bullpen And i think they're handling it. Aaron boone is handling it the right way giving aroldis chapman some time to figure it out and let's face it as long as they keep on winning built in time for the yankees to put to restore chapman to get him back Back in order. And that's obviously the the most important part of it because we've seen that in in the in the playoffs for the yankees and it's amazing that it has been chapman that that has given up. I mean the biggest. Of course homerun is the one you remember with altoona. And that certainly setting off the controversy but they they are getting it right. And that's one thing that we couldn't say before the all star break and when you look at the landscape of this team and of this franchise over the last ten years since they last one or more than that since i last won a world series. Brian cashman is always told us. The longtime gm of the yankees has constantly said to the face of criticism in new york. That it it just. I don't wanna use trust the process..

"I look for like the littlest thing louis reasons to believe right and the injury of the car loss in that of course was crushing frustrating things. Yeah exactly. that's how good things. But then i'm like you know usually just check. Nfl twitter. Just see what the league's got going on. And you click on their profile and in the masthead. Above they've chosen to feature. Zach wilson the official nano. Gimme that don't give me that number. Two pick in the draft is featured on the nfl's official twitter and found it to be interesting is. Is there anything to read into that. I mean obviously not. But i'm doing the accent anyway. He's your think of him. Like what are you. You've seen him for two games. You're a former jet. And you saw mark sanchez. As he came out of the draft and was part of to afc championship least champion. Game teams. right. What do you see zach wilson and should i and other jets fans feel like at the number two pick. The jets got it right. Yeah i see a slow heartbeat. Right and i was Sam darnold fan. I thought that he explain what you mean by. Slow heartbeat slow heartbeat. We gave joe. Joe flacco to named joe cool because in in situations he still was calm. He didn't act like a rookie. He didn't act like a young player. he's still was poised. And so you're talking about poise poison. A pocket guys not panicking not running out of their early not believing in what's going on down the field. I think he showed that he can throw the ball on the run throat. A davis on on the right sideline with tremendous all arm strength. I mean only a couple of guys can make that type of throw. I've heard a lot of people say that in some people have made the aaron rodgers garrison when it comes to rogers. Yeah mahomes because he's doing off platform. He's moving east on at a moving target. And he's throwing across the hash. That is a tremendous throw. So you see the armed taliban. What i liked is like a lotta time when you watch josh allen. When he first came in the league everybody knew he can throw through a barnyard door right but he didn't have the accuracy. He has the accuracy but also he has to touch. I hate when you have a quarterback. Strong wants to show that he has a strong arm. Every time he's doing friendly ball that passed in between the scenes for the touchdown the cross. You know what. I mean it it. It had enough arc on it but it failed and it was a friendly pass where he can also catch the ball but he got it there enough time so that he can protect yourself embrace for the hit understanding deaths a little guy trying to hit a guy that six he's gonna bios off of that and spend into the into the end zone all the time you know what i mean. i like. Jet fans are not accustomed to having nice things but every once in a while a blind squirrel finds a nut. Really nice santa. joe. You know. Joe doug brien squirrel but i think he got it right and i think it was a tough decision internally we knew that solid potentially like sam darnold within that division because he was a young player but now it reset the clock and not to have a guy with tremendous arm thailand but the difference is unliked on sam darnold out there to the wolves with with the offensive line. He has the pieces in front of him to protect them. He has davis has lived the billy. Let's see if i can stay healthy. We know more is legit right. And now you have all these tight as remembering this system you know like some of the unsung heroes in his systems. Like karl us check right. He's like a back that moves around and and it helps in the run game because he's always coming back across the face right. We saw him get the touchdown away. But they're saying it's also for for counters in running a ball to so everything mirrors up so now he's not a sitting duck even though they have a great offense line. You can get him on the move again throwing and so listen i think. Maybe maybe i'm saying maybe the kara lawson could be a blessing in disguise. If how joe. Douglas has kept a lot of you know powder you know a lot of powder dry so to speak. They have flexibility. They have tremendous you know cap equity going forward but they have a lot of money so now you said okay. We lost kara lawson. What do we have to do. Generally absolutely you sit them saying really. Go out and get a guy challenge. Put him on a three year. Shot that they're gonna be looking to replace them that they're not just going to you know next man up with this they're gonna look around and see if they can find something and there's talk that jones is not happy. Of course he's he's contract situation in arizona of course because. Jj watch shows up right his big money and what and what happens when you think about the fact that they can potentially get a guy like chandler jones who's been one of the most productive pass rushers over the last five years and all he had was a bicep here so i don't worry about his age i don't worry about his knees or it's because he's coming back and then potentially call comes back. You have to book ins. I'll fair and that's kinda like what he had in san francisco with bosa and with de ford so now as you look at it could set beautifully if they go out and they make the move but they have the equity. Do so all right. The question again though. Let's get back to the offensive side again. This is the number to pick in the draft and this was a big quarterback draft five players. And it's amazing. All five have been in competition for starting zach. Wilson's the one guy that has been like. He's the starter from day. One like nobody's even questioned it. Backup right jennifer lawrence even even though as much right has has had some competition in urban. Meyer wouldn't name him the starter. There was some. I know it was ridiculous. But it's still zach wilson from. Byu had to throw the pro day. Season is the only guy that was the given number one starter. Now you mentioned the offensive line. They have had some injuries there. And there's what happened with beckton was last year's first round pick. This guy is a absolute mosser's six seven three sixty three. He was manhandling people on the left side of well. Yeah you're right because he might be a little more than that but it's was the line from member we'll be wildcats football movies tonopah of extra blake where his parents feed them. Probably eight as parents. So but the becton who was such a stud last year as a rookie. Who had great expectations to protect a quarterback. Like exactly exact- wilson who's not very big head to head collision yesterday in practice and was up. Your i left before that but there for people that owner send..

Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 04
"Is thereby do like the fact that kyle amaury stole from the ball but now we are going to hop into a guy that went fifteen picks earlier in nfl draft. A guy that. I absolutely love allied larger more. He felt a second pick of the second round. And i am adjust fan. So i hope i'm not too biased here by do absolutely love elijah more because you look at the offense there. The new york has in place and the did geico davis and they do have them. Zal dumbbell mims there too and jamison crowder and you may think while there's a lot of receivers here but fact of the matter is the jets spent high draft capital. Two goping get larger more. If they're picking him with the thirty fourth pick of the nfl draft when they have all these other holes on the roster. We're talking edge quarterback you can make the case that they probably should have picked a player that was an edge or cornerback but they went ahead and they pick the larger more probably because they had a first round great on him and viewed him as one of the top receivers in this class. And if they didn't think that he could he could become a number one number two receiver. The offense and zack wilson. They probably wouldn't have bothered. They're in picking eligible more. So i think that you have all these. Ribisi were twos vibrancy. Threes in newark. Don't have a true alpha by receiver one in york and you saw gems on men's last year yes. He had injuries throughout the season. So we didn't really see enough from him but clearly the jets haven't don't believe him enough to be born receiver because they drafted elijah more. And when you're looking at college football last season devante. Smith had a great season but a lot of people are not talking about elijah more enough and i believe elijah moore had the second most receiving yards in college football last season in a shortened season. So this is a guy you can make the case for is a very very good receiver and it was. It was definitely disappointing for him. To see 'em fall out of the first round. But i absolutely love this landing spot with zach wilson in leiden. More both being rookies. I think the chemistry is going to develop an plus alleged. moore's blazing fast receiver. He can like a four three forty and this is the guy. That's an impressive rat runner to me to really has a little bit of it all. He may not be the biggest receiver the biggest taller receiver. But i think that he s potential to be a slot receiver a coup number for the jets in years to come so i am all about allied more this year and going forward i think there may even be better than rashad. Bateman and may be the third or fourth fest receiver in this class. Well i just wanna stay for the viewers. You know anybody. That's been listening to us. Knows that you're not just being a homer on him because you were higher than just about everybody in. The industry like the entire draft process before the draft. So i know it's not just because he landed at the jets because i would call you crazy. It was just for that reason. But you know i think you make interesting cases you know it you also knowing you. You're not a very high. You weren't high on the corey davis signing. I don't think that you're surely how on mims of abbas really really Into mems last year Going the draft process. I did not end up with him on any teams because his a draft dot com just started skyrocketing and he the point where i was taking pittman over them. Still then you. I wasn't getting him. On the turnaround you know because i also claypool and gibson ranked ahead of them but Like mims and i thought he was actually a really really interesting prospect. So at night we're willing to give on him after He's got that alphabet. I'm not willing to give up on him after a year. That a complete dumpster fire in new york last year. You know they have a completely new offense. I corey davis kinda showed that he could be the number one wide receiver. Antonio brown was hurt. Leisure you know most of those. Those guys actually kind of started splitting targets down the stretch about pretty pretty evenly. So i do. Think that Corey davis they paid him. I think they're going to at least attempt to get him. The number one spot and i do think mims profiles really well and the outside as well Us why they went out and got him with that pick. What corey davis and mims strengths are like down the field jump ball situations whereas i think Allies more profiles more is like underneath guy that can can really thrive if he gets volume. I just wonder how much volume is going to be there. If they're not running a dominant amount of sets of three watersheds. Because i do think that the other two receivers with their bodies and big catch races will Out snap him on the outside while it's interesting that you're high on Corey davis. And i know i've said before the not hot high in corey davis so i think that's another reason as to why i'm higher on a lighter more. I'm just not buying the fact. That corey davis succeeds in new york. Two years ago not last year but if we look back two years ago and a lot of people probably have wiped out from their mind. But i have not wiped that season from my mind because i was big. Encore dave's heading attest season and he completely let me down lake completely. Let me down. I'm not even sure. I'm thinking was probably healthy the entire season and i'm not even sure if he finished as top fifty receiver in the league and so fast forward a year and had a very successful year with the titans. I'm not knocking him. But here's a guy who was picked with the seventh or east kick in his draft and he was supposed to be the number one receiver for titans and we never really saw that work out for the titans. And i think they declined his fifth year option. So there's a reason why the titans aren't holding onto corey davis and i think unfortunately core gape is a receiver who can be great here and there like a devante parker. But he's not consistent enough. He's not a true number one receiver. You gotta in a way force in targets from the be successful. And i think the jets are just gonna realize the gecko that our number one receivers probably larger more in a number two receivers probably summons so. I'm not scared about corey. Davis getting targets. People were saying the same thing last season about shod paramount and how he was going to have a huge role in that new york offense and what happened in bre shot parent. Who by the way. I was extremely on extremely law. Shot payment last year. What happened to be shot. He did nothing for that offense. So i think just because the jets went after core gave us that doesn't mean that he's going to automatically demand targets. It's zach. wilson's offense now. I think zack. Wilson is going to gravitate Skies like elijah. More over corey davis and a jamison crowder dems. I think the alleged moore will end up being his normal receiver. And i think that the ceiling for more is very high to it. Might it might not happen with a larger more by think by the end of the season we're going to really realize how good of a player that allies are more is. Yeah so

"Here's your visit with john beck. You know it's funny because you played at. Byu had a terrific career byu otley byu. Flares tied detmer and jim mcmahon. Both we spent time together in green bay. And it's always been a thing. Where byu develop quarterbacks what is it about your experiences at byu that enabled you to not only play in the national football league but to now pass on that knowledge to others who aspire to play in harlem. Yeah it is a special group there. There's been a lot of great quarterbacks that have come through. And i know in my time there with that legacy of quarterbacks that have gone before me. You wanna be a part of those guys. There's a high expectation that's there when you're the quarterback of that university but it's exciting to be a part of it. It's a great challenge and when things are good it's usually because the quarterback position is their razzle dazzle. We saw this last year with zack. Wilson and a great job that he did and now it's an exciting for him to come out of. Byu and be another one of those guys and then in terms of how. I hope the other quarterbacks. I think every quarterback has to be able to do with expectations that bill do with that pressure in that standard. So some of those lessons that i've learned coming from a place like that playing for some organizations in the nfl. That had great quarterbacks as well. It's just being able to recognize specialists to be a part of that legacy of quarterbacks and then also just there is always an expectation. There's an expectation of performance of efficiency. And it's part of the job that you have to be able to handle each and every day you go out there but it's exciting. It's a part that i I quite frankly missed but it's exciting. I get to help these guys. Take on that challenge themselves. It has to be extra excited. When you're able to see someone really blossom right in front of your eyes at your alma mater. Zack wilson Really had a breakthrough season in two thousand and twenty talk a little bit about your relationship with him where you guys. I met and how you of have developed a relationship over the past few years. Yeah i had a chance to meet zach. During his freshman year he graduated high school early. He was one of those early graduates than rolling january. The way i met zach was his uncle was actually bringing his son out. Zack's cousin doing some work with us and he just said hey. I really think that my nephew needs to come out here and take a look at this and so i got to meet him right after spring. Ball his freshman year and he's been training with us for. I think it's coming up on three years now and it's been great. It's been great to see. His development is a player. He's always been really special in terms of athleticism in how much she loves the game. His approach and his drive towards becoming the best he can be but it's been cool to see that maturation process in terms of decision-making also in terms of just rising to becoming a better player. Each year. he always set out with. I want to improve in these areas. And how kinda of tie in his athleticism and all those things in his arm talent and each year see how that's kind of jumped level jumped a level and then this year i mean quite frankly went out there. Put together an amazing year and it's been cool to see because it's been three years. It's not something where. In years past i meet a guy january where they played their final bowl game or playoff game. I meet them in january and we start. Working has been different. This has been knowing him since he was eighteen years old and to to see that kind of dream come to life and now he's going to be a top draft has been really cool. It was really cool on my own mayan as an evaluator is to really see the light. Come on for him When you watch him this season. Ucla make remarkable place and you also see his confidence bill week after week after week. Have you seen him mature. Says you guys have worked together. And how did it really come together this year and twenty twenty. I think some things really fell in place in terms of alignment there at the university right. It's the same offense he was able to have jeff. Grimes and aaron rodgers offensive coordinator's wide receiver coach festival. That was there that really keeping that system in place allowed him to grow it in the same system. He wasn't needing to relearn offense or have new philosophies concept so it was this continual put something out during the season and then he's the type of guy that's going to go back and watch every single game three times and he's going to go and take notes every single time of all right. Here's what i did. Then what can i do now and to see that coupled with every day he came out here and worked with us it was always about. What can i do to improve my game to take myself to the elite level. He wasn't just trying to better than average he'd wanted to be a leak and he was the same way when he was a freshman and sophomore but he had the battled through some things. He had a surgery that had the kind of work through. That makes it tough when when you're trying to improve as a player and you have to either learn new offense overcome some type of injury through rehabilitation. It's just not the same as when you get an off season to kind of come in and really just on improving as a player in the same system and i think that coupled with the fact that having some really good players around him he had a really good group wide receivers. The running backs did a great job. A great offensive. Line any quarterback. Does i wanna play well. I depend so much on the guys around me. So there's a lot of areas that you can point a finger and say it's because of this because this is because of that and it's the guys around him it's the coaches around him and then right in the nucleus of all that is how zach approached. Everything has a great approach to the game if things really came together on this last year man. Did it ever come together. Form when i wrote on my notes while i was evaluated. I wrote down the natural. Because when i look at him i think he plays the game in a very natural fashion meaning he can play on script or off the script he can make big throws but he also has the discipline to take things underneath. How hard is it to be a very talented player but harness it in. Just take what the defense gives you. How hard did you work with him on that part of the game. Well i think in my in my job. There were some conversations but i'm sure that his coaching staff there. Like i said the coordinators. They've probably spent far more time discussing decision making within a play. You know there were times in the off season that we would talk or sometimes even in season about just being smart sometimes very talented guys. When they're young they want to do so much. They have such confidence in themselves. And they haven't really had those scars yet of You know trying to do too much. And so they're always willing to go for to push it to try to make the great play. I love that about zach. And that's where you when you talk about maturations a quarterback you see that. I'm learning how to be smart. I'm learning how to play within the downs. I'm learning what can say. I don't need to take that chance right now. Because i know i can still do this. And then when you couple that with his athleticism at any time he can make that game breaking play. he doesn't need to force that ball on second down. Played eleven other down because you never know within the when that opportunities to come is gonna come to just capitalize and he's got all the tools to capitalize on those big play moments. He's got the mobility he's got the armed strength. Like you said he's a natural player when it comes to throwing playing off platform opportunities will arise for him to make great place during a game and you could see that route his freshman and sophomore years just at times. There were those decisions of trying to do too much. And i think as i look at this last year man he just seen by in such control of managing games of knowing when to take those opportunities and knowing when to just let me live to play another down. You know it's funny because you mentioned his confidence when you're working with them on like what is that. What does this confidence level like when you watch them practice and then when you watch him perform yeah you know i get to see him an environment here during his off seasons i watch all the games but don't get to be around him during the week in preparation for the season but out here you get the sense that he just always so willing to push through like. Give me the next challenge. Give me that tough throw. Because even if i don't get it today i'm going to work on it and i'm gonna be aware of what i need to do and when i come back i'm going to want to show you that. I can make that throw. That's the thing that i really love about the way. Exact approach things. It was just this this excitement for give me that challenging throw because he has that confidence of believing that. Hey i think i can do it. He got a little bit of swagger right. He's got that little bit of like that. Fine line between cocky and.

"zach wilson" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"It was our head coach and it was aaron roderick. Who was who was his position coach and really should be credited more than anyone for zacks development But i really feel like you know once once that got comfortable within the offense the more we trusted him to go out there and play Carefree once once we really And we certainly worked to develop an offense that would that would fit him. But i think he's a guy that does care about the team you'd love to throw the football every play but he wants to win and so i think as he grew and developed as a player. We trusted him more and more and this this past year in particular. There weren't very many times while we were saying Be careful there. Were very very few times that we were saying. I remember. this was more or less just calling the way then. A zach go do your thing. And we trusted him that that when we when we didn't have the best the best play call that he could find a way to run around and still make something out of it. You know coaching thinking about that. Let's let's fast forward and let's just say that you are in. Nfl head coach. Went offense coordinator. And you have. Zack wilson and you have the opportunity to build an offense around him. What do you think the best offense is for him to play like what things need to be in that offense to maximize. Who will i think i can do it. All there's not. There's not anything in the game that he can't do he can make all the throws i know. That's a that's the thing that a lot of people say. But i think it's it's It's really not that true about that. Many guys he really can make all the throws He has tremendous timing and touch on the deep ball And so i think throwing the football down. The field is something that made a made a huge impact on our team and on on him. is his progress this year. And so i think i would. I would start with that. Willingness to throw the ball down the field With the play action game and be willing to to to throw it deep several times game you know not just not just say we're gonna take a shot every now and then but really make a commitment to throw the ball down the field because he has the ability to make you pay..
Cowboys' Mike McCarthy reacts to Dak Prescott contract
"Talk about the cowboys. Were coming off a disappointing first season under head coach. Mike mccarthy but looking ahead there is all kinds of hope after they signed prescott finally to that long-term deal yesterday. The coach spoke about his expectations. Here's what he said was actually I was in florida when the deals was finally completed It's a lot easier to do cartwheels on the sand. I'll say that I'm excited about your two of the offense because frankly a lot of ways we felt like we didn't really have get to have your one so we're excited about what we can do. This with the healthy offense.
Raiders make surprise pick in latest Mel Kiper Jr. mock draft
"Mock draft three point. Oh is available on. Espn plus right. Now and here. We go no surprise at the top. Trevor lawrence has been there and we'll be there for the moment and started to the moment. That pig is made. He's going jacksonville. And that's not going to change at number. Two mel projects the jets to stay put and select quarterback zach wilson who would be the team's highest drafted quarterback since they took joe nemeth thousand nine hundred sixty five at number three. We have a trade that panthers would move up from number eight to select justin fields from ohio state carolina getting its quarterback of the future miami. Picking up more prime picks. And the falcons make it four for four to begin the draft selecting their quarterback of the future trae lanes. Should it go this way. It would be the first time ever that quarterbacks go with each of the first four picks in the draft. We take a look at the rest of mel's top ten. After the four consecutive quarterbacks we see some other names you will get to know. Kyle pitch superstar tight end. More pass catchers jamarcus devante smith jail waddell notably absent on this screen. Max jones the fifth quarterback in this first round the star from alabama who mel projects. Going number fifteen to the new england patriots and let's start there because mel we spoke about this the last time you broke this down for us. You had max jones going considerably higher namely number eight overall. Why do you see this drop. Greenwich carolina eight with matt rule had max jones at the senior bowl practices where he was exceptional right. So you figure carolina's stuck at eight. They would look at mack. Jones new england and fifteen is built. Bellichik nick sabin connection and obviously looking at a quarterback to get back to. Maybe the tom brady days. Okay get your that type of quarterback which is what mack jones is his style and the way he goes about his business as a pocket passer so once carolina in my mach three point. Zero was moving up to get justin field. Mack jones next opportunity to come off. The board for me would be new england at fifteen.
"zach wilson" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"You're gonna hear this a lot. This is like going to be hearing. Clayton Kershaw and Matt Stafford, her friend. Did you know that they were friends a minute when they were kids? Yeah, and they grew up. They played on the same teams. One was a picture, Huh? Think about that. He then turned into a picture the other catcher about Wow. Think about that. Two throwers, but one but see how this works. Wow. They both throw for a living, but one caught is a kid. Wow. Think about it. It's crazy. So what you're here now, now and now they're in the same city as professional athletes. Wow, that's crazy, man. And so what you're going to hear now is that Mac Jones has a master's degree. He could also speak Mandarin. So so Mack Jones, Todd McShay. Was on Zubin J. Will and Jay will and Keyshawn this morning, Right? Our morning show here at ESPN 1000 Todd McShay talked about where the top quarterbacks will go. In this year's draft after his mock draft was released on ESPN dot com Number two is when I think that kind of the draft starts, if you will. The Jets. I have them taking Zach Wilson. BYU quarterback. What? After studying all the tape of these top prospects of the quarterback spot, I think based purely off of film that it's Lawrence. Then there's a little gap than Zach Wilson. Then there's a gap. And then it's Trey Lance from North Dakota State and Justin Fields from Ohio State. Is that third tier if you will. But I Wilson going to win. The interesting part here is it could be to the Jets if New York is able to move Sam Donald and get some some draft capital for him, maybe a third round pick this year, first or second round pick next year. But if they stay there and wind up if they don't move, Donald, then I think they went up. Moving out of that spot is what I should say. And in that case, it could be a team like Carolina, moving up from 8 to 2 to go get Zach Wilson. So moving Wilson to two was more about Wilson being Clearly the number two quarterback prospect in this class, and if it's not the Jets, it could be another team moving into that spot to go get him. Then, after Wilson I've got Trey lands from North Dakota State and Justin Fields from Ohio State is the next two quarterbacks off the board. I had Carolina moving up from 8 to 3 within a trade for with Miami in order to go get Lance. It could be fields there. I have almost identical grades on the two Matt Rule told me at the Senior Bowl in his defensive coordinator and another assistant coach. They all said the same thing. We feel like we have a playoff roster outside of the quarterback position. We lost eight games last year by one score, and if we have a quarterback that could make that drive In the fourth quarter. We got a chance to be a really competitive football team, so I think they're going to be aggressive in terms of going up and getting the guy that they wanted that position and then finally, I don't know that Atlanta is going to take a quarterback with Matt Ryan having one or two good years left and having all that cap space that he's eating up for Atlanta if they wind up moving him, But Atlanta could look for the future of that position, and it could be Justin Fields at that spot if he's still available, Number four, and if not Atlanta moves down, and another team like San Francisco, possibly Dallas, possibly Chicago, 20 Indianapolis of 21. We have to see where all the dominoes fall with the veteran quarterbacks between now and the draft, but they're going to be several teams. Need a quarterback that could be looking to move up to go Get that guy. Come draft weekend. Todd McShay earlier this morning, Zubin J willing Keyshawn right here on ESPN 1000. So you'd have four quarterbacks go in the first four picks of the NFL draft. I agree with you the tray Lance won over Justin Fields, I think is crazy. McShay will explain why he has trey Lance over fields and we'll hear from him. Next. You're listeningto.
BYU QB Wilson, likely first-rounder, entering draft
"Plays Clemson at 8 P.m. Eastern and the Sugar Bowl for a spot in the college football National championship game. All eyes air entering this game or on Justin Fields. Fields in the Big 10 championship game struggled immensely. With his final stat line, and the wind against Northwestern was was 12 passes completed out of 27 attempts. Only 114 passing yards, no passing touchdowns, two interceptions, and the Ohio State signal caller only averaged 2.9 yards per carry running the football. Earlier today. BYU quarterback exact Wilson Declare for the NFL draft, and the conversation currently is still Will be Wilson or fields as the second quarterback taken in the NFL draft after trouble Lawrence Zack with that conversation surrounding fields on size or offsides fields. We'll send a statement to his draft critics tonight and show us that he should be the second quarterback off the board. Come in the NFL draft. Besides, I'm gonna go off sides here and I'm not saying Justin Fields can play a good game time. He can't be worse than what he did up against Northwestern. Unless if he balls out and gets the victory, that's the only way that you show a definitive argument why he should be the second quarterback. There's a lot of debate. There's gonna be a lot of conversation leading up to that right now. It seems that Momenta miss shifting to Zach Wilson, and now it's up to Justin Field to try to get that back. Ultimately. Even if fields plays well. And there he could play. We'll go blow to blow up against Trevor Laurence and the Clemson football team. I just don't think Clinton's went and I said this all year. I know it's not going out on a limb. I just feel as if we're on a collision course to see Alabama and Clemson once again. So unless it fields gets that win, I don't think there is enough of a statement that is going to get sent tonight to basically guarantee that he'll be the second quarterback off the board and then fields coming in at number three. Or maybe even for dependent on what you think of trade Lance and Mack Jones. So I do go outside just in fields will not send the statement tonight In my opinion. And I still think there will be draft critics. They're questioning him on if he should be the second quarterback off the board, all
