"Hey everybody haya do. Is bill williamson. This is brad. This is our week one review week to preview week. One was if we to anyway league line already discombobulated. We're in for because that was one helga. Football game is not believable. You know. I've come to expect it from those las vegas raters. They're just incredible. Just an incredibly entertaining. Watch right. i just killed a spider my wall. how about that didn't skip. Get a beat. A pretty big one. I haven't seen spider near older anyways. This team is just so entertaining. I don't know if it's good. It's better than good in than average. Hey look it wasn't perfect last night. Thirty three twenty seven but they made plays. We'll talk about that a little bit more. Really my sticks out right now to me is that this is going to be a lot like last year. Last year was incredible. So many incredible finishes good way someone to bad way. This could have went the bad way easily. And narratives changed like crazy on these whether the windsor losses. And that's just the way it is rugged and this not to be negative this is just a talk about what goes on. The game had been few seconds left on that clock in justin tucker wins it at the buzzer. It's measurable in las vegas right now. People are complaining about the receivers people were complaining about the defense giving it up at the end. People are complaining about the fans not loud enough news too many ravens fans in in that stadium. The injury concerns are huge. Those injury concerns or big right now anyways but it's just a little better. It's not let's not worry about the other teams fans right now. Let's not worry about the defense giving up in the fourth quarter. Let's not worry about the most of the receivers being non existent for most of the game because it all worked out. There was thirty seven seconds. Brian words didn't make too big plays in regulation and in overtime henry runs made a plane overtime. Renfro was good all day. Most of it zeh jones winning touchdown that would never happen. You know what. I mean so the narrative so the merging so thin and again that's not negative. It's just the way it is and they did did have that opportunity. They gave themselves at opportunity and they took advantage of it. And maybe this is this going to be one of those seasons where it all in follow. way I don't know last year it came back and forth and it was just chaos and right now i think this year is going to be chaos. And if it's good it's good cares. It's bank house will deal with it but right. Now you're wanting to who you beat a team that you might have to deal with in the playoffs plush. So i say enjoy and not worry about things. Too much denzel. Good is hurt is out for the airport on the espn and groom said. Shortly before that that that report came out that that was a possibility. Jahic mugabe is is possibly hurting. I am. I'm taping this at three twenty or so on tuesday so there may be news between time that this is recorded new here. This but grew nsen. Gangway could be out a while. Jared mccoy could be out while the way into the. Tv's he even said gruden said all. These guys are going to be examined but he did say we're gonna miss mccoy that sounds like he's gonna be. He was carted. he missed all last year. You know look at. He's a guy that they brought him for depth to help defense line he played good in the preseason. But still he's an older guy. And what do you. You can't necessarily count on that little k- there if if neglect way mrs bigtime. They'll miss that for sure for sure. Kind of downplay cleland. For the honest truth is clinton vero was wasn't healthy scratch. Yeah he has some back issues but he practice all last week and he wasn't on the injury report so he was a healthy scratch. Gakugei can't play this weekend. You know even if it's a very serious hamstring injury. He could miss the week. So so gonna get chance. Max was a superstar yesterday with fantastic nesbitt rubbed really good he. He helped win the game with the strip of course So you know. Maybe they're going to be okay there. But you're certainly missing magog guay marcus mariota and that big thirty one yard run in the first drive. He gets hurt hurt. His quad disguise deals with a lot of injuries. Maybe he's out a while. That's the case. Peterman your bag up. And and you know the marcus. Mariota packages is on hold. So that would hurt but yeah. The raiders played clutch football. They made the place when they needed to. And the defense show. The turnovers can be your friend. Defense wasn't perfect however they had three sex constant pressure. They had two turnovers of the quarterback on pressures scored. Fourteen points off of those. That's what happened to them in the past. They didn't turn the ball over one time in overtime car was close. Clark kerr the evanston play all summer in the pre season. I think it really showed and it showed her the ravens too week. One's odd week. Things settled down into the season goes but car settled down quickly in the second half but he was shaky at first but they got done. Hey if you're gonna get concentration two turnovers you're going to win a lot of games on defense and defense helped him. I said max was. He was monday night. He he showed that the nfl world what he is. Brian inwards stopped about his opportunity. Any shined but still see if the whole game. You know it's weird. I mean the raiders were walked in on waller and the ravens were locked in on waller and the raiders kept on going to them. Nineteen times. But you know wait in the game. The young guy showed up with c. Rubs had a big catch but all in all roads was what he was last year. And that's a little frightening. He competed at one ball. He's gonna make big plays but is he going to be a constant threat with see Often so i need to do some work especially with the injury good. So here's the ring news back soon. john simpson. Who played there. We'll we'll slide to the nba left tackle for the rest of the year of not This week of simpson will be in for income neo and germaine illumine manure. You know me and names. I think that what. I'm not going to try again on scum jemaine again for the rest of the day. Jon gruden liked what he saw from him. He'll play You know at right guard for good this week if income needles out at left guard. I've been saying. I'll off-season and the raiders felt that way too. There's there's not much room for air on the offensive line. As far as injury goes hundred. James had a tough night. Alex leatherwood had some moments. Were so good. They struggled and run and run protection. Run blocking passport was better. But you know it's a work in progress. It's a work in progress. But hey it's a win and you clean up all the crap lot more happier when you after a win right. And we'll see how the run game goes and this offense has a chance to be dynamic. Then defense is does what that you can win with. That evens giving up twenty seven points. If the offense does what it can't and i think it will again defensively keys pressure internal perriman over nick. Kwiatkoski was a little surprising k. J. right place. I made a big play and down. That helped win the game..

At the end in overtime it was absolutely wild. It felt like the raiders wanted lost the game about seven times over time but and then they get down to the end with this. Play at play there on the field congratulate each other but then they went to the replay and it took this past zeh jones to win the game. Four las vegas in the first game with fans in las vegas jalen. Anthony rose what do you think of derek cars heroics and over time. It was a terrific comeback victory. And you get the buffer enthusiasm every day from jalen jacoby. That's why you guys been with us for ten years and they didn't get off to a great start away. Well how about the fact that derek carr led three game tying drives in the fourth quarter and then as you mentioned once overtime cave lost a game won that game lost the game and actually won that game again and away. He'd targeted waller nineteen times. I noticed excited about renfro in henry. And you saw jones make the touchdown to win the game. But i've got a secret put him. They need it though.

"With derek carr skipping las vegas preseason opener in marcus mariota nursing a leg injury third-string quarterback nathan peterman stepped on the field. Saturday night to play the seahawks with a chip on his shoulder. This kind That that's kind of when. I play my best where peterson said and apparently he was right. Peer peterman completed twenty. Nine of thirty eight passes for two hundred forty six yards. You would think this was a real game numbers that this is coming up to be the right. Leading the raiders to it's twenty two seven victory over the seahawks as Case cook replaced peterman after the two minute. Warning to hand the ball. Off to fullback gary grassi in on in his only play Really just keeping things slow For the most part. I'm sure Nate peterman is a true professional. He takes his job very seriously. He loves the game of football. He loves to compete at a high level and he cares for his teammates that was said by whiteout zeh jones. Who finished with three receptions when he's in the huddle When he's out there on the field he's going to do the best that he possibly can. Dj turner led the raiders with seven receptions while keelan dose hauled in six passes. Trae reagan's rush for sixty two yards on thirteen attempts in added three receptions as well so these guys get active. They're holding guys in there for good time. Not just you know. Want to serious realism. Get warm go at it so we can really see what they can do which is kind of a smart way to go about it. If you ask me i'd say so myself. Las vegas scored on its opening drive when a group decided to go forward on fourth in goal and the one yard line with regis reagan's punchy midway through the first quarter. Bj emmons at a two yard. Touchdown run midway through the fourth as well Gino smith started a quarterback for the seahawks. He went four ten for forty six yards before. Leaving with the concussion in the first half concussions in the air by trying to just you know get gateway getting feeding. So you gotta roll with the punches. Alex smith replaced smith and was six of ten for fifty. Four yards with one touchdown Sean manion finishes for seattle complete five. Eight four fifteen yards. What does that tell us. Death look local shakey's looking writer coach. Pete carroll said smith was okay. Hey right after raiders. Defense of back. Nate hob sacked him from the blindside. But the concussion got worse so did just couldn't let that continue. Mogollon took advantage of the blown coverage in hooked up with dj dallas for forty. Three yard says down in the third quarter looking pretty interesting. The raiders played in front of a home crowd for the first time. Since relocating to oakland relocating from okinawa me. I'm sorry It it had a crowd in just three road games last season and went to six inside. It's empty sixty five thousand seat stadium with fans bar due to the kobe. Nineteen you know have last year but they have friends this year. So i'm pretty sure. They're happy to have those raiders fans in the building. Real real hot for them. Okay was next year. Ask well the hawks. Host the denver broncos on saturday the raiders here to los angeles on wednesday to practice with the rams. Okay and then teams. Play next saturday to s-o-f-i at s-o-f-i stadium inglewood california. Are they going to see what they really are about got. Everybody got to really show their hand at that point a bit over to. La bowl are a los angeles versus los angeles. Inglewood california we are in nearly seventy thousand. Football fans filled up the terraces The conchords the seats a party area all of insofar revealing the opportunity to see los angeles to hometown teams in person at their new address. The los angeles rams and the los angeles charges both intend to put on a much better shows with several better players for those fans next mind when we kick off the regular season dares bridewell rush for a touchdown in the third quarter in the chargers. Beat the rams thirteen six in saturday's game Rams owner stan stan kroenke Be rightly say football arena welcomed his team in its cold tenants for a will attended preseason opener. Although neither club played any of its stars neither club played any of it starters The crowd still clearly. Enjoy the first collective trip to so-fi Which will host the super bowl in a one day less than six months And although the game wasn't a thriller both teams gave those fans plenty to cheer quarterback bryce perkins made an individual play or the night in the fourth quarter of winning scrambled from the pocket stiff damon. Lloyd hurdled came in hall to pick up a first down at third When he was thirty nine who looked athletic and it was beautiful. But i think it was a mistake to give airbus impose will perkins soaked up the love from the crowd which included his parents out. There i'm sure he was heartfelt about that to charge. Shutout the rams in the second half to win the head coaching debut of brandon. Staley call which wall but who took the t. tip the chargers a less than five years after he was the defensive coordinator at the division three john carroll college the thirty eight year-olds daily spent last season with the rounds. Where he led the league's number one defense in his only year as nfl coordinator. I'm gonna just let us okay and either you caught that or he did He was most pleased by his new defensive resilience. The rams drove to the chargers five with nine and a half minutes to play but a devon hodges through an end zone interception. that's where things got ugly chase. Daniel when fifteen or twenty four for one hundred four yards in the first half of the chargers eastern state quarterbacked The bolts only touchdown.

"Slander is the only thing that i can call it on with. Mccoll hardman it. Demarcus robinson and i listen. I'll i'll say there is some fairness to what they have shown thus far in their career. But i do think especially with hardiman is young and i don't think that he's really had a a real fair moment to come in and say all right. This job is mine. I know exactly where i'm going to be. I do think he's had to learn multiple positions and a lot of different things to get on the field and its that play making ability that he has is there. He is a big play waiting to happen. And i guess just like you believe so much in legit serious need. I think that's where i am. In hardman. And i think that explosive playmaking ability to go along with the play caller and the person throwing the ball and never ever will coverage be slanted his way he will always be able to to go against weaker corners at least the teams weaker corners and and probably one on one coverage. And i gotta. I gotta see that he can complete. He will completely be a failure. I just think there's just too much around him and robertson to like robinson he just needs to be solid. And and i think i always said about two marcus. Robinson is. he's just super solid and reliable and to me. That's never once about about demarcus. Robinson never up saying and i just i b. I think he could just be if he is solid five. Andy's playbook still can't remember all of his routes if he could remember the eight that he needs to the eight seven or eight that he needs to come. On man like demarcus robinson has not been trashed. Not find marcus. Robinson is a. I said the word find earlier. I'll say it once again. Here actually applies to robinson. I'm just saying high level starting wide receiver. He's not in the but to me. When you're talking about bringing josh gordon from the dead of football did excuse me that did but the football dead people are talking about nicole hairy and other. You're talking about dede westbrook i. Those guys are good enough. You don't feel like you need to go drag those guys now. I'm not gonna sit here and say like some people are really have belief in by sprinkle that he's going to be something. I'm not gonna go that far but those those two to go along with with tyreek hill. Like i think you are. Just you are just fine right there to be the explosive offense. You need to be with those guys. And i do think especially hard man. I'm not going to send in about the markets. Roberts that take a step forward but i do think we call hartman. Takes us a step forward. And i trust me taylor and nate. Taylor's very smart gentleman. That was a beautiful beautifully rid grape. Proce whatever. I had ready yet. But i'm going to. It was beautifully done. And i agree with the. He's he set. The stage is set for him to make this just calm down. True or false. The chiefs had finished wide receiver core in in the afc west. Not the worst because they have. I mean if you're looking at talk to you would take nobody in the nfl. Probably over what the chiefs have but in terms of depth. Either they have the thinnest in the in the afc. West for the raiders. Rolling out after henry. Rugs and so the raiders. Going into the season have brian. Edwards is pretty good player out of south carolina last year. hunter renfro john brown. Willie snead zeh jones I i would take the chiefs over them. I will take john brown over. Any of the secondary receivers chief south and brian edwards. I'm not taking brian edwards Bryant has some upside. he didn't do much as a rookie but he's got some upside. John brown's how the hell does he get to have upside well. How the hell is brian edwards. Get to have upside mccoll hornet. Doesn't i never said that mccall hartman. Doesn't have upside. My issue with nicole hardman is that he is shown through two years in the nfl. Yeah he's faster than everybody on the football field except for tyree kill. But that's all he can do. Tyreek can go up and get a football. Tyreek can make a cornerback. Look like a joker on the field. I haven't seen that from a coal hartman. I haven't seen nicole hardman. Go up and get a football ever in his nfl career. I'm not sure mccall hartman. Athletic enough to play on the outside and go up and get a contested football. The other thing run is it. It's less to me about his upside in more about his role. And i don't think the role that they want to utilize him in this year is one. That's going to accentuate his skills. I think the role that he would have to be in four that would include tyreek hill. Not being on the roster. And i think that was part of why he was drafted mean. Go back to draft night with gall. Cd what happened there I think they felt that. The role that tyreek hill has in their offenses show valuable that they could not go a season without somebody having the ability to fill that and now they're trying to basically put a square peg into a round hole and i don't think he's the guy to go there and we can go to the chargers as well keenan allen mike williams josh palmer jalen guidon. I liked their death a little bit better than the chiefs as well. The the chiefs have the top end. Talent too far exceed every other team in the nfl and they've got the quarterback to make this thing work but their depth is a real issue in one. Cut down calm. There are going to hopefully be better options than what are available right now out there on the market and i hope that the chiefs are interested in our indu. Consider somebody or maybe multiple. Somebody's that can come in and help this roster receiver because they are completed there in terms of their talent. I can't wait to this damps. Season starts depleted. I mean deplete it. Good god man. I mean. I'm just saying do you think it's going to be somebody like i feel like the people are going to be available in. The range of byron pringle are in the range. And nobody's going to be as good as the market rob. Can you imagine if this team has zach paschal. That's the kind of guy they need. I don't know if i'm willing to go. That far zack pass. I.

"If you really wanna do a deep dive into the the raiders. I mean it. All it all starts with it. I mean it all really starts with. Gruden i mean. Mark davis handed him the keys to the franchise and he went out and hired. Mike mayock and you know. Mike may just excuse me a little bit of map melanin them former nfl linebacker not even as accomplishes mellon who had three rings with three different teams. The but a guy who Just i don't know what it is about. These linebackers have to draft wide receivers. I think what a star star. That's something that i would expect from a twelve year old. What do we mean now. What about the big wide receiver bryan edwards. Good yeah i know but you have already galore and rugs and renfro. You're gonna be throwing most of the time to waller spending draft pick on moreau last year. You're gonna keep carrier around and you're going to keep rico gaffer. You made a trade for zeh jones.

"That the Ravens are just a tougher passing defense that are rushing Defense Gotcha yeah I feel good about it too. We'll see how plays out. That is a real deal defense. So it's not out of the equation that that's a problem All right. Let desert a listener questions. We have a real raiders themed listener questions I felt good that I wasn't the one pump in the raiders onto the show the listeners were. So shout out to the listeners who who know wanted to graciously make this a enjoyable episode for me subsides Jerk McKinnon. Barrel joffrey access. At Barrow Joffrey our boy said WHO's the Titan one and why is it Dan Waller Adam, how do you feel about this man? He very well might be the tight end to while George skittles out but Travis Kelsey, quietly meanwhile during waller making ton noise Johnny Smith ton annoys Noah Fan Tyler higby ton annoys all those guys are top five but who sits Dr Travis Kelsey as always forever he's a lot for Laker. It literally go back over the last four years. He's the tight end tight end to all the time. So for me yeah, it's Travis Kelsey, but I mean, Darren Waller is a must start every week. You gotTa feel phenomenal about him I know we feel phenomenal because all of us were big Darren Waller guys this year our home and a bunch of leagues. So yeah, I mean He. You know he is that offense it's human and Josh Jacobs that's that offense and you know with. Las Vegas has figured out is that's how you win in the NFL. You just find guys that dominate and you just give them all until the defense can stop if they can't just keep doing it. It's simple. Shocked Jon Gruden figured it out. But like bullshit no out wax poetic a little bit because I is actually all about it. The raiders are impressive you have to you have to admit after the first two weeks of the season. You can see the built offense. The car can actually run don't act like Carson good quarterback we'll get to that. Question coming up on him but. As far as building an offense around a quarterback and around your skill position players, they're doing that exactly how you'd want and they are a funnel offense. So for fantasy waller. Ingestion. are huge smashes this year. Yeah I appreciate good workers there I don't mean you're speaking. So he'll the raiders is very uncharacteristic. It's frustrating they don't even like it, but it's true man you got to give credit where credit's duke written has done a great job building that all fence around his talent. I do you WANNA share this to this little Bill Belichick had an inter-, his interview today's press conference because they're playing their raiders week and he was axed. How good of a tight end is Dan? Waller how tough of a match up and this is Bill Belichick and obviously we know he talks about the opponents and make them feel good in catch him sleep in a little bit. But this is what he's at. He said, yeah, he's really really tough I. think it's been such a long. Time since we've seen a guy like this, he's really got great receiver skills played receiver. He's got a lot of length a big receiver does, but he's got very quickness and he blocks very competitively. He's not afraid to mix it up. So he does more than a receiver plan tight end ways at all the skills that can come inside. He's a very good insight receiver, which sometimes a white outside trouble making that move in there. He's really been impressive to watch. We saw him last year looked at. Him in the off season and you just see him doing everything playing wide playing the backfield play inside and run indeed, catch and run plays block in flash plays point of attack plays so very versatile player pre unique guy in the league. There's some really good tight ends but nobody really does more than this guy does and he does it very well, he's got excellent hands. It makes lots of catches. He's definitely match problem now I know he talks us up I know he does this everybody feel. Like there's value there when you saying like is legitimate right and I just wanted to you know try to throw some more Dan Waller man because you guys know I've been on it to three years now whenever the raiders were bringing them on and so I feel really good to see him having success like this in his story, you know his his struggles with drug abuse and just makes it even much that much more better So yeah managed Darren Waller shown to Darren Wall Josh wanted dispute. No. Not at all I remember I remember when people were. Out there in waller because of some hunter, Rinpoche splits hearst impact like that last year and I I was not in that your people and I'm not them now. They're in waller real. He's real next question at your boy Rick Day rich what up Girich he said, when will the Derek Carr slander stop I feel that this question is best directed towards Adam because he's the only one here who really slanders Derek Carr. This is super simple. Okay. So what has happened here is John gruden's builds an all fence around Derek Carr to arrive, and it is thriving NFL level Derek. Carr is not a good fantasy quarterback and I can prove it to the first two weeks of this season. Derek Carr is qb seventeen last year in all of twenty nineteen. What was Derek Carr qb seventeen in twenty eighteen through the entirety of the year. What did he finished as if it is qb eighteen one off that this is what he is I mean he's not anything different but what's great is they built an offense that can actually thrive around him. So he's probably going to be a more reliable weekly starter, but he doesn't. He doesn't have a big ceiling I just don't see it like from fantasy. Perfect for me. He's qb to he's a guy who has bought start potential but ultimately, I mean he is who I thought he was all along. He's a NFL journeyman now has a system that's being built around him. That's effective because they have rape playmakers and they're just four standing on the ball, which is fantastic. They keep doing that who keep producing in the. Way that he has so far, which is as high end qb to which I think is essentially what he'll always be fancy I'll tell you what I'm taking all those Derek Carr points and Scott Fishbowl all those nice cheap Derek Carr points guy that's interesting. I'm looking where he's Scott fishbowl through two weeks is that's adds a totally different format that definitely makes things. More over seventy percent completion or five hundred passing yards, four touchdowns, zero interceptions this year so far or one hundred qb rate every single week I mean the guy is just doing it all man like he's perfect for that setup for especially for Scottish zero interceptions just as beautiful thing man to beautiful thing Josh Yeah you feeling Derek are coming into the year, right? It listen Derek Carr is just he's he's so crapped on and the reality is is in this gray area of Sameness with you know. Eighty percent of the other quarterbacks in the League and win Brian Edwards and in rugs take off they're going to drag him up. It's people just want to sell the story that Derek Carr is so bad when in reality, he's just like every other quarterback in the league except for maybe four of them. Not. To mention you to Tanah Nelson Galore and then Zeh Jones week to. Know that takes.

The Kansas City? alanna losing to the raiders looking to. Consider again, losing means WHO's in the flow like. As a nasty schedule bit. I had. Eight and that was before I seen. News I got see these these this this was. I, think this is the first division that that. so At it in a no I. So maybe light von Miller worth. Like three games. Yeah and his. They don't even know where to aid. Is it to be quite honest I mean they I like I like the Melvin Gordon Edition. That's going to help out drew lock Glock and. Listen as well. So I mean they, they have a nice young. A core there in my opinion, not not great but something to work with. But Yeah I was I was banking on Mammalian, rush the edge and given the bottom of the Gordon Seventeen to twenty times in. Having Drew Lock Other Ball Twenty five times but now you don't have him. I thought it was GONNA be him and job and ain't going to be him. To Stop and nothing against own cases that was a big pickup as well but They're defense is good. The dead dead von Miller come off that as something different. So I'll say I'll drop down. To five eleven. Well. I gotta five and eleven as well. You know the bar Miller, the von Miller. Situation I think a lot of pressure on offense. And most importantly put pressure on A. Laptop. And I think, I think he's capable of it i. think he will do believe he's capable of it is just that. It will be against won't be consistent still young woman assistant. So it'll be a games where they lose because. He had a big and the Novi Games. Lose because he had a good game and they didn't have. So I think. Five and eleven six and ten I think that's probably would. I agree chargers Looking at I'm looking at a record. who today schedule man look at this again. Got The man eating the. Guy Look at the schedule again, I can't remember the eight win. Could Cause, I'm which I do think that the chargers have a good defense even without. Even without Darwin days, they have a good defense. I know why they're. Scheduled track. Outside the chief twice. She's twice they got Tampa Bay. new, Orleans. Buffalo. Like other side of that. Cincinnati reds. Jets Dolphins Jaguars. DENVER. Like. That's why the late because. They should legit beat nothing legit. Beat them teams there. But. Even. If the talks about pick the I will pick the charges even with tyrod. I will him against that team especially with that defense as gotta mainly. Defense. Darwin. James. GOING DOWN AS big? My. My apologies. Staked her wings But. I see him I, see them. Actually lose into Cincinnati I ca-. Being Carolina beaten a jet. I think I got beaten the dolphins. With Denver. But outside of that. Jacksonville. Jacksonville I'm sorry. The Jacksonville? Carolina. Jets and. SPLIT DENVER. So yeah. heirloom limit for. chargers Ya. Got An Nana seventy. Got On seven. Because I'm a Rod tyrod. I'm tired I'm tired of him in the short end of the stick man. So I'm around him and I'm I'm ninety seven and just just for him. I. I can definitely see. tyrod. Is One of those who can win you a couple of games I definitely understand that. Any we. F- I appreciate schedule in Hort enough I can see them when that nineteen on I don't think it's enough to give him in the playoffs but. I can. I. Can see them seen A. Night being on the raiders I got an e as well. which was tough for me because I actually I was actually high on the raiders last year. And I was kind of high on them again this year but then are looking at their schedule and I'm like. I can't. Pencil in ten. Winston. I can't, pencil in double digit windfarm. they schedule is a little brutal to me as well. It gets gets easier going with the last. in in in December gets a little bit easier for him. But I think in the middle. Trump. So obviously wins they going to. Be. Carolina. I got them beating. Denver are the chargers. jets. Charges Again Dolphin. DENVER. So I got really losing I. Got Them Actually Going Forward Twelve points when division Then that got them beating. The. Panthers. Of the jets. Falcons and In My. Readers seven to nine. I mean. Looking at their their roster nothing stood out to me besides the young guys. And they still got prove. which is Josh Jacobs Henry Rugs. Pickups. was. Guy Who can't pick up? Nelson. So that's not an yeah. They Zeh Jones he really didn't show much of Buffalo I don't know what happened with that. And the defendant.

"To three hundred attempts. To eighty three, but I wouldn't surprise me at all if he got to three hundred really really struggle with the number of targets to give him because Jalen resort has been awesome at it. They've got other guys that can fill that role. They did not act like last year. They wanted to throw the ball to shake him very much. I still have him with twenty eight catches at feels like I don't have any idea what a ceiling is, but that feels like it might be a little bit high looking at it right now. I've got Rashard with thirty five and then twenty three more from the rest of the group. I still don't know like even with the addition of these wide receivers like last year. Her twenty eighteen. They were amongst the lowest in the league. In terms of number targets that went to their wide receivers, they went out and netted Antonio Brown, which obviously didn't work out. They added Tyrel Williams. They added Hunter. Info, and they were amongst the worst in terms of targets that went too wide receiver, so I I have downgraded Darren Waller. Feels like I probably should have. I felt the same way down wall offseason, but I dropped down to ninety two targets and I felt while doing this projection like. I would want that number to go up higher than I would want it to continue to go down like I I feel like he's still a pretty good. Pretty good bet for ninety targets, and that puts him right at number, five or number six in my projections, so it probably means that have been a little unfair to him. Kind of throughout the. Just WanNa. Look at the pure stats Darren Waller last year had one thousand, one, hundred forty five yards on one hundred and seventeen targets, only three touchdowns. You guys have been projected eight hundred and forty five yards for heath, seven hundred and forty seven yards for Ben. And less than seventy catches, but more touchdowns. That's good for two five touchdowns. For Me Yeah came out at ten and six. But across the board in this projection, and he's probably right about Josh. Jacobs Russia's and I'm probably low on that, but there's probably nothing else on this. That I can take anything actionable from I just guessed at Henry Rugs. Tyrone Williams hunter rent from Brian Words. Rolls and I didn't know whether to project those. That's who I wound up at the top four but Nelson Larkin could play Zeh. Jones got like thirty targets last year on, comply I just guessed. Guessed the back of running backs splits with Jaylen. Rashard Lynn Boden and Devante Booker, no idea there no idea what kind of role Jesus gotTA play. None of this is something that I feel is actionable for like what they're. upsides are like if rugs is an illegitimate number one, or if one of those backup running backs is the clear passing down back, there's value, but right now I just have it all split out and and none of it seems actionable. Agree Heath. Probably I can't make a valid argument for any of those things. I've got rugs. RENFRO and Williams within sixteen targets of each other like eighty, seven, seventy, six, seventy one waller dropped all the way to ninety three targets, and he's still leading the team. and that's like somebody's probably going to get one hundred targets if they all play sixteen games but I. don't know they may not I. Don't I don't have a good. I know how I wish they would use. Henry rugs I'd like to see them. Play Brian Edwards and nothing against. Hunter Renfro I'd like to see them play Brian Edwards and tyrel Williams outside more play rugs in the slot. More and using more on gadget plays than I'd be a more excited about him I. Don't get very excited about an outside wide receiver for Derek Carr Dyke running deep and making place. What people people like Renfro? We get a lot of questions about him. He had a good rookie year. We talked about him on twitch on Tuesday night and Ben pointed out he had to really long catch and run plays, but still in the middle of the season. He was looking like a fairly solid PR FLEX option. And doing well for a rookie, and just you know eight, six hundred and five yards and four touchdowns in thirteen games, not so bad. over a hundred of those York, throwing those to place. Well okay, he's not gonNA. have any big plays. Maybe actually. Maybe he won't kind of a slot. That's the part that I think is harder to buy into. The. Like big play on a guy who caught these slants took him to the House as opposed to being like you know a deep threat who made a plight will that I might think could happen again next year. Maybe The easier way to like put a bow on the raiders is. Draft Jacobson, elite running back. Draft Waller is a mid range, tight end, and maybe through a door at rooks. Do you see top five potential for. Process Jacobs? And actually want you tell me where he is in your non PPO projections if you have that or just in your rankings. Grab that I do believe there is top five non PR. Upside I'm D-. Undoubtedly have him ninth right now in non PBR and He's right behind mile. Sanders I wouldn't be all that surprised if he was better than miles, sanders and nine pbr I haven't twelve non. which is within a couple of points of of ninth? They're all really close right behind mixing and Aaron Jones and Kenyan Drake. They're all of the three points. But don't have him as high as I thought. He didn't come out of time. PR's. I thought RB sixteen. He was actually like a whole tier below the mix in Jones and drake guys because he doesn't. I didn't project. You'RE GONNA. Draft him that way. Well Yeah, this made me this projection any more concerned about his upside personally to answer your question. Can you referenced the rush attempts? I wonder what you have. The raiders add in terms of run pass. Because last year they ran more than you would expect for a bad team and still view them as a bad team, but they're like they're closer to an average many. They went set at a nine last year. They got seven and a half. Over under. I've got them at four hundred and eleven. Russia attempts this year. Ben has an at four, hundred and twenty. Their percentage coming back toward league average about two percentage points. You have them for nine more Russia's than I. Yeah I think I've just splitting out the runs more than I should, but. I don't know how many like are rushing yards in rushing touchdowns far. I gotTa tell you. Ben Devante Booker is not.

"The Gruber law offices one call that's all studios were with you through routes two and three of the NFL draft tonight. Josh Rosen reported Lee is being traded to the Miami. Dolphins. Just as we thought long, but the Arizona Cardinals just not getting that return on investment. Even what they we thought potentially earlier today getting a pick in the mid forties. We're now in the mid sixties portion of the draft. So the not not getting what they thought they would. And quite honestly, great value for the Miami Dolphins a guy who was. A first round pick a year ago, a guy that a lot of these draft pundits would say it's probably be the second rate at quarterback on their boards this year, which clearly means you would still be going in the first round this year to get that kind of value out of a pig beyond number fifteen years, tremendous value. I think for the dolphins. And I think it creates a really interesting narrative in the AFC east when it comes to the quarterbacks and that division because obviously you have Tom Brady still courting quarterbacking the New England Patriots still winning Super Bowl. He's just ridiculous. Right. But out he's not going to be there forever. He's forty two years old. That's probably going to end. And by that. I mean his career shooter rather than later, right? He's gonna wanna hang it up. There's there's very little that he can still accomplish in the National Football League that hasn't been accomplished by himself already. He's holding a lot of records a lot of rings. There's not much else you can do. So elsewhere in that division. But. Buffalo's got Josh Allen who showed a lot of promise at the end of last season. The jets have Sam darnold who showed a lot of promise. The end last talking yourself sitting there in your in your bills hoodie about Josh Allen shirt. A lot of province of the talking yourself in wrong. One of the more inaccurate quarterbacks in the NFL. Just because you watched one of the worst games that he played last season because it was against your beloved Green Bay Packers bad their defenses. That was pre Josh Allen injury. Where he got thrown into the starting. I'm not going to get into a bills argument with unite, but he had to play because they didn't have another option because Nathan Peterman was there. What else do I need to say? Was that a great situation if they're a rookie quarterback into hey sticky of behind Nathan Peterman alert a little bit here. Come on. Kuan pleaded fifty three percent of his pass. That's neither here nor there. Here's what I. Okay. All right. So I'm presenting it to you. So it's here. So you're worried about accuracy with Josh Allen. Yeah. What about his legs? What about his size? What about maybe I don't know getting better. All of those things right quarterbacks who are inaccurate at the college level at the high school level rarely rarely can significantly improve. I mean, if he improved five percent named three from last year still incredibly he's still incredibly below league. Average. Five percents. A large jump named three bills wide receivers from us. It doesn't matter. It can still be does you can still be accurate now if you guys aren't getting open, we didn't he did you go to emulate or. No, no. No, they Jones is he's still today. Jones Zeh Jones is one. Okay. That's all you got me. Charles clay end. Charles plays tight end barely. But he is he was he was so much that they had no problem releasing him at the end of the season. Barely. So the point I was trying to get as it creates an interesting narrative of the AFC east behind Tom Brady where you have three second year quarterbacks that some people are high on some are not high on gave nights Josh Allen Sam darnold and now Josh Rosen L quarterbacking the three other teams not named the New England Patriots in the AFC east lets the breaking news on the NFL fronts at this juncture that the cardinals have swung trade for Josh Rosen. More importantly, though, our Twitter poll is in the field at ESPN Milwaukee. Would you rather have a body like yourself or like ole miss wide receiver de que Metcalf in the last segment of the show? Gabe. Read off a basically verbatim. A men's journal article from the internet, outlining why being ripped is a really bad thing for your health, which I think is absolutely ludicrous. I would take decays body every single time tank. Yes. I would know sixty nine percent of respondents through two hundred votes voting for gay Metcalfe's body. Yeah. Everybody's liar. They're not lying. Why? It's a very simple pole. It's kind of a yes, or no, yes, I would take UK or no. By the way, you came back out still not select. You're going to tell me you're going to pass on. That you know, you go out with your buddies you head back home. Hey, brian. Here's a Labatt blue. Now. I'm good. No, I feel like I can still drink that Labatt blue. And then just go for a run later to burn off those ninety six calories or whatever it is. You know what I mean? Like, it's not gonna be that big of an issue. I'll take decays body as sixty nine percent of respondents agree with me tied weeks into the program at ESPN, Milwaukee and says would you rather have a Range Rover or Fred Flintstones car? Freddie got along. Pretty pretty good, man. You don't talk about good workout, you want to talk about a good workout. Flintstone the size of the wheels on the that's not just like one though like Z K Metcalf. Yeah. I mean, I bet. It's nice do. Yeah. He's probably got real quick thighs move that move that entire family around with just your feet on. Those those stones those stone tires that. He has those things are huge in order to move. Those. You got to understand the white power. It takes decay Metcalf might be taken Fred Flintstones car out west. Jeff Howe the patriots beat reporter for the athletic. Boston just tweeted out that the Seahawks have traded with the New England Patriots. And we'll use that pick on our friends. You came back after the bowl is the final. Pick of the second round means we are shortly going to be moving into round three. And as you mentioned the pick is about to be announced. I mean, they haven't had a total tail wide receiver. They've had. I mean, don't Baldwin's guys. Yeah. Baldwin's kind of grown into a decent receiver golden Tate. I would say did most of his damage and growing as a receiver outside of that organization. You know, you kinda grew is the big linking dude that like was the year that they lost the patriots on the goal line out in Arizona in the Super Bowl. They brought in like a six foot five undrafted free agent that was making big catches in the Super Bowl. And then I never heard from him. Again. That's the only big wide receiver that the Seahawks have ever had outside of that. They just had like golden Tate's in Lockets in Trent Locke inside his name is it Trent Locke it played at Marquette. Tyler lock here's A T. So they've had short. Guys, the pig is now officially UK Metcalf is Seattle Seahawk, man. I gotta believe Russell Wilson's probably pretty psyched about that off of his newly minted contract where he's going to make a boatload of money. And now he's got a big threat that is very much boomer bus potential. You're talking about Chris Matthews. Chris matthews. Talking about he's short too, isn't he? Or at least you strikes me as a guy that plays short Germain. Curses six one. So he's not he's not Super Bowl. Oh, he's free Catholic. He looks big compared to all the state compared to the receivers that they had. So he is off the board decay Metcalf. Our guy is off the board. And I were just a couple of picks away. I mean, the third round is starting here momentarily. So the Packers are going to be back on the clock. Probably in the next twenty five to thirty minutes here. I would guess around nine o'clock they'll be selecting again, and Jason Williams joined us just before eight PM central time this evening and said that his guests for what the Packers were going to do with their third round selection. Here was going to be an offensive skill position tight end wide receiver running back, and that's something that they have not addressed up until this point in this job. Jerry's to see if it would end up being a running back because I kind of like what they have. Granted you have had injury issues with both Jones and Williams. Maybe Jones says shook some of that he's he's a little bit better shape. Rogers made the joke earlier during this many camper. I was asked by anybody. Who's really impressed you in terms of shape, they've come back in and he mentioned Erin Joan because he made fun of Aaron Jones saying the most athletic fat guy that he knew or something along those lines. Then that he moves maybe a little bit more chubby, and guess he's he's dropped some of that weight since then, but you'd still maybe wanna third guy as part of that rotation there. But I guess I've just be too. I'd be guy. You know? I mean, I would be lying you if I said I'd done my due diligence on third around running back prospects in this NFL draft because it doesn't scream positional need for the Green Bay Packers. Right. It's not something that we would have been tremendously focused on saying, hey, let's use a top three round pick on a running back because you have air Jones, and you have Jamal Williams and. It's just not a position that screams. Hey, we need to select this and the top three rounds where. I think also are focused is probably a little skewed perspectives a little skewed because we're so locked in because of recent history about trying to find catching weapons for Aaron Rodgers. And I just feel if you're going to have a third running back voice to thrown pick on especially especially with the way that they've approached their first three selections of the draft. Right. Yeah. I mean, you can find a developmental running back, which is what if sixth route seventh-round undrafted free agent. It seems like every single year. There are running backs that come out of those positions. Give you a perfect example, Bryce love. He's running back out of Stanford University. He tore his ACL in the regular season finale of his senior year if he hadn't done that. I think he would have been selected probably already with a first or second round pick. Allen. And he's probably going to go somewhere in the third fourth or fifth round here because he suffered that injury and probably has to work through a redshirt year. That's obviously not the type of pick. That's going to help you immediately. If you're a Packers fan, but could pay pretty big dividends down the line..

"Twitter a radio, you can also find our Facebook page after hours with Amy Lawrence for those of you who. Are saying this would be the end of Antonio Brown's career. He won't play there. You're treating buffalo like it's football purgatory. And maybe that's fair over the last twenty years they've had one playoff appearance. And that one came via a miracle Bengals over ravens week seventeen that was two seasons ago, and it was phenomenal. Is the moment of the year. But yes, the last twenty years revolving door of quarterbacks revolving door of coaches. At times devoid of talent though at times that defense the run game have been viable. So I think this if the bills are not pursuing Antonio Brown. Maybe they should. Because that could be an massive upgrade to their offense. And I'll just give you some numbers again to do our due diligence. Don't know this trait is happening. But it might not be a bad deal for the bills. They've got ten draft picks roughly seventy three million dollars in cap space. They need a top-flight receiver who can stretch the field who can draw the defense who can balance out what they're throwing at defenses. So they've got a good run game. They're among the top ten in the NFL in rushing yards per game last year shady McCoy is still a difference maker as long as he stays healthy. What was the complete opposite for the bill's passing offense? Josh Allen outside of those games in which he was injured middle of the season. So was October into November member they started, Derek Sanderson. They started Matt Barkley. Alan maybe was out there too soon and the offensive line was a mess. But his top target his top wideout Zeh Jones. Second year guy who had seven touchdowns but Allen has a whole only through ten touchdown passes. He had another eight rushing touchdowns. He's a mobile guy. He's shown him explosiveness. He had a couple of games over one hundred yards rushing. Now is that a a long term model that the bills wanna use probably not, but it was necessity. They didn't have much of a downfield passing game. They were bottom three in the NFL in both yards per game total yards per game. But passing yards per game and points per game. The offense needs an upgrade Antonio Brown could provide that are there are some concerns about chemistry shore, but Chow McDermott very strong personality is the head coach, Josh Allen, brash and bold. You would think that some of the other veterans there on that team would embrace the edition of talent like Brown, but also would want to stand up for their QB, you'd hope and maybe not the type of guy who can be pushed around. But I also think there's a honeymoon period here where Brown wants to earn a new deal. So if the bills aren't pursuing Brown, maybe they should start pronto immediately. Order.

"Got bad information or the situation has changed since Rappaport delivered his news. Schefter is not the only one who's disputing that. Trade is close our own CBS sports NFL insider, Jason lockenfora. Woke up about an hour ago. I mean, if you work are hours, you're already a position for this. And you don't have to get some coffee to do your job do your. It's your job. I can hear Gregg Popovich in my brain right now. So Jason lockenfora, essentially pooh-poohed the whole idea. The bills are nowhere close to trading Tonio Brown, the Broncos and cardinals and jets were never in. It be careful what you read these days, folks. Are we going to lecture? We'll get a lecture from Jason an hour ago. He says it gets more ridiculous by the day. Especially in some parts though, sadly to my chagrin. He did not specify those parts. Good morning. Jason. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence. This is why don't take stuff seriously. And also why you source everything big tip for young aspiring broadcasters. Journalists writers do not steal someone else's work attribute everything because it may be wrong. And then you've covered your bases. It's happening to colleagues of mine in the past that they've actually taken news from somewhere that wasn't their own. They played it off like it's their own. And then it turns out to be wrong. So I'm telling you Ian Rapoport says, yes. In fact, it's still being billed as breaking news on the bottom line on the NFL network. We've had it up all night here in studio, and they're still labeling at breaking news. And the wording is the same. The Steelers are closing in on a trade to send Antonio Brown to buffalo.

"I almost brought popcorn for dinner. And didn't what was I thinking? That would have been perfect. You're sending me some funny gifts and producer. Chris is retweeting them. I just want to pass this along. Even if the bills do not end up trading foreign Tonio Brown. In two thousand eighteen Brown as I've mentioned multiple times led the NFL with fifteen receiving touchdowns. Do you know how many the Browns wide receivers had total eleven seven of them going to their top wideout Zeh Jones. If you've never heard of him. Well, maybe you didn't pick up and fantasy that dight second-year receiver had nowhere close to a thousand yards. Not his fault did have seventeen. Josh Allen had ten passing touchdowns eight rushing touchdowns. But the bills offense was bottom. Three in the league in terms of total yards and points per game. Women I but the numbers don't. By the way, the bills single season franchise record. For one player with it. With a cumulative receiving touchdowns eleven so never in Buffalo Bills history has one receiver caught more than eleven touchdowns. I'm telling you, even if it doesn't happen. The Bill should look into it. Let's say Rapoport is grossly mistaken. It does happen. And even happens to the best of us. Let's say he got false information. I'm not saying he would lie. I'm only saying that his information. His sources were inaccurate or incorrect or using him. That's always a possibility. You gotta be careful. That's why you foster those relationships with great care. And that's why you're really careful about what you put on social media. And what you consider breaking news, of course. But I wouldn't say that this would be. Rappaport issue. He's very well respected. But so is Adam Schefter and the others who are now weighing in. But if he got a Rhodia's aronie s reports, and if he got badly sourced information, I still say it's intriguing for the bills, even if it doesn't happen. They desperately need a top-flight wide receiver for Josh Allen. They have the draft picks. They have the cap space. Maybe this is just the red flag that's waving to get their attention. Like the bills in Pamplona go chase Antonio Brown. Also for those of you who are making fun of buffalo as a region and western New York, you're stupid, and I don't actually say that very often have you ever been to buffalo? Western New York is beautiful and Buffalo's amazing. It's a small town feel the fans are passionate. They have a great football tradition. Even though they've had just the one playoff appearance this century. They obviously have a football tradition. That features hall of famers and Super Bowl appearances. Don't trash buffalo.

Amy. Hello. First time caller longtime listener perfection. Yeah. I gotta tell you one thing. Boom. You hit it right on the head about buffalo. It is a great town. The people are. They're so in love with the bills and. Great great place. And yeah, you're right. You know, people speak buffalo the bad weather. They think of losing four straight Super Bowls. But they're great. And as far as Antonio Brown goes, you know? And our record last year at Charles clay caught that pass in the end zone at the end of the game against Miami in Miami. Neither one had their kickoff special teams not giving up that long return at the end of the game with the jets were they kicked a field goal in one at the end of the game. We the finished eight Nate. And they're making all the right decisions in buffalo and. Antonio Brown, which fit if he comes in with a positive attitude. I think he'd blend right in with big Sean McDermott is a guy who is not just a mouthpiece for positive culture for chemistry for the right guys. But he's indicated that that's really how he's going to shape his decisions. And so if he believes if if the goal is and Sean McDermott believe that this is the right idea, plus their general manager, I know the full brain trust there but McDermott has a strong personality. He also is very strong ideas about how he wants that that locker room culture to be shaped. And I think the Josh Allen we've seen is pretty brash and bold himself, though, he still relatively young they desperately need a star like that to go along with shady McCoy. I think it could be a good move. I'll actually be disappointed for them. If it doesn't happen. Yeah. I I I agree. And and you know, you look at the owners the ghoulish they're fantastic people. And they're totally on board. With the general manager, the assistant GM the head coach and stuff. They're all right there. They've got a young core of people at the top of the ladder. And I I've got a positive attitude towards buffalo this year and coming up. I think they're going to be great. So I appreciate you keep going and go bills and have a nice weekend. Thank you so much for your phone. Call from Elkhart, Indiana. If you love snow. Buffalo is absolutely the place for you this time of the year. I may New Hampshire girl. I love snow. If you haven't seen my latest Twitter avatar. Oh my gosh. I'm glowing because I'm out in the snow penny night. We're having a blast earlier this week. So getting Buffalo's a beautiful place. It has a small town feel even though it is a major city. Western New York is it's a place that I lived from multiple years, and I enjoyed it. In fact, I was part of that bills football culture for a while because the radio station I worked at in Rochester, New York, which is just east on the three way. It carried bills football. It was a clear channel am that could be heard in thirty eight states and Canada and so- bills football was very popular. We knew not to mess up. You were going to mess up. Whether it be with production or running the board the radio board, you better not mess up on bills football anything else fine. But don't mess with the fans who are desperate for good news and positive vibes about their bills. Eight five five two one two four two two seven. Let's talk to Willie who's in Miami. Welcome to after hours you. Hi, amy. Hi, I'm so break for talk to you right now. 'cause I waited anyway. Following up with that buffalo thing I come back from the Miami buffalo, you know, how many chances we could've beaten uploaded acted get to the championship game. Thurman Thomas in the boy, but bypassing that. I would love to get your insight. Oh, what do you think we are today versus back, then I'm not going back there. I had to throw that out there. But where do you think we are right now? But let me get your as well, I think the most important question is the quarterback question willing. They can't do anything. They cannot move forward until Brian Florez and the Miami front office decides what to do about quarterback. Are they keeping Ryan tannehill? Are they going in a different direction? Tannehill is a ton of money in two thousand nineteen today. Believe he's the guy not only do they want to pay that kind of money to. But that they believe that they can invest in because this would be a really critical year, of course, for Brian Floridas first year head coach for his staff. They want to establish the building blocks and the foundation, and I just don't know that they can do anything at all until they figure out the most critical position on the team. Do though I mean, just you're inside because you have very knowledgeable. What did they do about Tina hill? Well, the whole the whole structure, what are they going to? Thank you think they're gonna take. No, I don't believe in tanking especially not in the NFL were one or two players a new head coach a fresh start can make a whole different perspective who tanks in the NFL. I mean, that's not even teams go from worst to first all the time. The idea that they would tank with a brand new head coach to me is ridiculous. I don't think Brian floors would have taken that job left. The patriots system where he was calling defensive plays where he'd been for most of his career and take his first head coaching job in a place where they weren't going to try to win that to me doesn't make any sense whatsoever. And they said they would give him a at least a year. Of course. No. He deserves that to try to set up his system to try to get his guys in place. But I you could still make a very very drastic turnaround in one season in the NFL. And there is room to move in the AFC. Let's be honest. I mean, I know the patriots have dominated that division for a long time. But he brings a wealth of wisdom and experience from his time with Bill Belichick. He's going to bring more disciplined. He's going to be bring a professional atmosphere. He's going to believe make strides initially just by changing the culture. But again, they can't do anything until they decide what kind of money they're going to have it in that invested in that quarterback position. But also if it's tannehill who scheduled to make twenty six million in two thousand nineteen or if they're going to go a different direction. So my my my my bad, but we're not supposed to use that word tanking. But they have to do what they have to do to get things restructured to do the right thing. But you know in hindsight, they call it. Thank you. I mean, there's a big difference between rebuilding and tanking again in the NFL. You don't generally see that you don't see teams that are trying to win because it's a sixteen game season. And as long as your competitive so much can happen over the course of an NFL season Willie. Thank you so much for a phone call from Miami, I strongly believe that until we find out what they're doing at QB. There's no way to know. What's happening in Miami? All right. We have another source. This one is hours. So I'm gonna pass this along from Jason lockenfora who's also awake at four seventeen. Baltimore time in the morning. That's where he is is in Baltimore quote. The bills are nowhere close to trading for Antonio Brown and the Broncos and cardinals and jets were never in it. Be careful what you read these days, folks. He's giving us a lecture right now. It gets more ridiculous by the day, especially in some parts. Ooh. Little cryptic message there from a salty jail. See who feels like he shouldn't be awake at this hour to have to respond to aronie s reports, but he's throwing his hat in the ring with Adam Schefter and saying the bills are nowhere close to trading for Antonio Brown. Boom. Schefter drops the.

"But he is a good bet to play sixteen games every year. Last year. He had an injury lady missed the final two weeks. He could've played in week seventeen. But they arrested him for the playoffs. He missed a game against the Houston Texans. And this year he missed a game against the Cincinnati Bengals for the reasons that have been well touched on and have been talked about. So this guy at thirty one years old is still on top of his game. One of the best wide receivers. If not the best wide receiver in football. A player of that. Skill level that talent that production becomes available. It's not he might be available. It's not you know, what do we have to do to pry this player away? The team doesn't want to trade him. But can we make them an offer? They can't refuse. No, he is on the market. The adas in the ads online. Everybody knows that he's available. In according to Steelers general manager, Kevin Colbert, only three teams have called. And I'm going to emphasize only. Because no matter what team you root for. You could be in Atlanta Falcons fan and have Julio Jones. You could look at this player and think. He'd make us better. Your team doesn't have a number one wide receiver doesn't have an elite wide receiver. You've got a team with a quarterback that might be struggling young quarterback. Let's say you're the Buffalo Bills. You've got Josh Allen who's your number one wide receiver. Zeh Jones does that make Josh Allen. A better quarterback. Does that help his development? You're the New York Jets. You've got Sam darnold going into year to which Sam darnold drops back to pass. Who is the first target? He looks for where does he want to go with the ball? You wanna throw it to Robbie Anderson? If your team already has a great wide receiver. Let's go back to Atlanta. Let's say you have Julio Jones. You put him on the falcons now defenses have a pick your poison. Are they going to double both guys if they do? Well, then you just had Ridley this year burst on the scene. He would become the third option. He's getting. One on one coverage in the slot. If you are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, you have Mike Evans, you're getting rid of DeShaun watt. Desha Jackson, you put it Tonio Brown on the other side. How you defenses stop that? You're the New Orleans Saints. You were so desperate. You signed Dez Bryant last year. You need to find someone to go with Michael Thomas Antonio Brown. You could make an argument because it's not a position where only one guy plays like quarterback or for the most part running back, even you can make the case for every team to trade for Antonio Brown. Every team. And yet only three teams have called. That's it. So either your team is incompetent. It's not doing its homework. It's playing a waiting game with the Steelers. They don't wanna strike while the iron is hot for some reason. Your team is either refusing to do its due diligence or Antonio Brown is radioactive. And there are too many questions and too many concerns about a extremely talented wide receiver. I get it in this gets brought up a lot. When we discussed diva wide receivers. And. What they can do or how they affect the team. Do they do they uplift a team because of their production? Do they drag a team down because their personality? I get it. The Terrel Owens played in a Super Bowl. He went with Philly. He was motivated that year righty wanted to get more money. It was as he gets there. It's his first year with the eagles. He's motivated. He's finally out of San Francisco. He gets hurt in the end of the year. He has this herculean effort to get back on the field is great in the Super Bowl. They come up short. Just short. But then after that, it was a disaster. The next year was a complete waste. He didn't want to be there. He sparred and fought with teammates he called out. Donovan McNab said Brett farve was better. The eagles pretty much paid them to stay away. And then they cut him. After that. He owes career was an odyssey was Dallas was buffalo. Cincinnati. It was an arena football league team was him in his late thirties and early forties. Still trying to convince people that he could be a number one wide receiver. I think you look went up to Seattle for a tryout. Nobody wanted to sign him. Then I think people look at Tara ends. And they see it Tonio Brown's future yet still put up a thousand yard seasons. And yeah, I'd catch ten touchdowns. Sometimes but were his team's winning. There's a correlation there in my opinion. I think at any Tonio Brown, and he's actually of all the diva wide receivers we've seen. He is the biggest one he's bigger than Teo. And he can make himself bigger because he has instruments he has platforms at his disposal that Teo never had te'o at a front yard and cameras that we would get his message out. Tonio Brown just opens up Instagram or Twitter or Facebook, live or FaceTime, or whatever Twitter whatever he can find. He doesn't need to schedule. A sit down interview with.

I think that last season was a really great step for me more production getting more comfortable within the new offense that I had to learn this year getting calming down with our quarterback, Josh Allen and things have just been way. More smoother just understand the pace of the game. And I've been thriving more in this often say talk about Josh Allen the.

"And forth mixed couple of different sports. And today couple of topics in today and one of the things we will do with our next guest. We're gonna talk to him a lot about the Super Bowl. But we'll also talk about the team that he played for for the majority of his career during his time in the NFL the Buffalo Bills. I started today's show saying we need to turn the page on the teams at art in the Super Bowl. Rams patriots. Yeah. You got an important game to play kinda get your focus and your interest. I met game. Next sunday. Call the Super Bowl. But for everybody else, you gotta look ahead this evening over whether you get screwed by a referee or the overtime rule or you didn't your. Kicker hit the upright and the crossbar and bounced around. Sorry, bears fans season's done. So you need to look forward. And I came up with one little that. I thought was catchy line as to where the team should be sitting going forward for the Buffalo Bills. I haven't done the AFC east yet for the bills. My line would be someone other than our quarterback will lead us in rushing next year. Right. That's right. Josh on lead the bills in rushing this year. So I wanna put that line and a couple of bills question for we'll get into the Super Bowl with our next guest. He is part of the bills hall of fame. We're lucky enough to have them as part of our broadcast team here at CBS. He also does some radio work for WJR up in Boston. Talking bills football Steve Tasker joined us here on CBS sports radio. I've been stayed. I'm doing great. How's it going? Good understand. You just landed in Atlanta, and it's seventy five and sunny, right? Only in your dream. Yeah. It is better than buffalo though. The red. Falcon, you got nine degrees warmer. Yeah. Exactly. Not exactly yes. Summer weather down there in Atlanta. But it'll it'll be fine by game time because it'd be seventy two indoor's enclosed. Do you heard my line for the bills? I'm moving on for all teams in the National Football League other than the patriots. And the Rams because they kind of got a game left to play. You're at my line of someone other than your quarterback is gonna lead your team in rushing next year. Are they? Oh, yeah. For sure it's it's it's interesting to the bills come out end up with a six and ten record. And you know, we do radio buffalo constantly were there on every day talking about the bills, and it would be I don't know maybe impossible to think of another team in history that has been more optimistic after a six and ten season of the Buffalo Bills fan base is it's it's been they really enjoyed watching. Josh allen. Even though they know it's not gonna species stain rushing. It was a young kid who really got better by leaps and bounds during the season. They just want the season to keep going. So it's a pretty optimistic atmosphere in buffalo headed into the off season. I can buy into that. 'cause I liked down coming out in a draft. And I thought he had a damn good year. I missed a couple of games with an injury. And then came back really did play well both running and throwing the football bite who is going to lead them in rushing. If it's not going to be Josh Allen. Shady have anything left in the tank. Why is he still abilities point? I think he does. I mean, he's the thing. We saw was shady last year. They have their offensive line. Don't they lost from the start of the two thousand seventeen season two two thousand eight season. They lost their starting left tackle starting left guard in the starting center. Offensive line that helped him lead the league in rushing a couple of times, and it was top five to the three previous years. They didn't recover from intact to retirement they traded cordy Glenn the left tackle because he did not sit the colts new culture that they moved almost the entire two thousand seventeen season. They had a good left tackle in Dion. It's a young rookie who actually stepped up and played pretty well, but they lost Richie incognito and Eric would injury to their center and right guard or less guard, and it could not replace him. It both retirements were unexpected. And the bills could not find guys to replace them. And they struggled all year because of it and their running game struggle Shawn McCoy still has some stuff left in the tank, but by about week eight or so it was just too tough for him to stick his nose in their take a couple of extra yards. Kept trying to bounce out kept trying to make something happen in the. Run game. And I couldn't get it done. Chris ivory actually had a much better second half of the year because he was much more contentious barrel in take a hard run inside the tackles pretty shoulder and just trying to get whatever yardage was there. He was actually more productive at the end of the season. So if the bills can fix their office of line troubles. They will. I think the Sean McCoy will be part of their plans. And I think he'll bounce back with a much better. You think it's kind of year that Alan had because they really didn't have a rushing attack. They watch their offensive line come apart and Zeh Jones is a really nice possession receiver. But he's not a game breaking wide out by any stretch of the imagination and Kelvin Benjamin. For me was a massive disappointment wide receiver short running backs. Not good enough offencive line fell apart. How the hell did Josh Allen? Do what did? Well, he did it because he's a he's biggest guy on the field. He's fast. He can outrun a lot. Well, he got run every linebacker. They faced in the second half of the year when he came back from his injury. He really and his arm is unbelievable that they started throwing the depot he's he the kid. Josh Allen, really loves to throw the football. Daiki pushes it down the field. And you know, it's interesting because his the knock on him. Coming out last year was a fifty five percent completion percentage at Wyoming, and you get it and you see him and you see them in practice. You see him? Throwing he throws it accurately. We throwing in what came to we came to realize he has a fifty five percent completion percentage because he always throws it down the field. He never takes the check down. He always takes the rough. He's always been rip off the big chunk on the last game of the season. They finally Brian table. The office coordinator, you know, him from the patriots. He was with Alabama two years ago when they'd be Clemson so Brian Cabell the offensive coordinator finally got the message through to Josh Allen say listen in this last game. Let's see if we can just take the completions. So he does that complete sixty percent of his ball scores. Forty two points on the dolphins and looked really good doing it. That's why they're so optimistic in buffalo. You can point to tangible stuff every game. That says you know what he's getting better and better every week. Between old line running back wide receiver with a dolphins gonna do with their first pick in a draft the bills you mean when I say my bad bells. Go offense of line. I think this I think they they're almost dick dictated to I think they feel like that's where they're gonna make the most improvement. If they can get enough guys up front to protect Josh Allen and move some people around in the run game. They will be able they'll probably dip heavily into free agency. They've got eighty seven million dollars to spend and really just really to positions. They want to shore up and that is offense of line and wide receiver if they can get some offense lineman. I think they're going to be exponentially better. See Tasca CBS sports football analysts then criminal buffalo Bill. Our guest here on CBS sports radio. All right enough bells question, but I want take you up on the bills. I know how much you know, about the bells. Day many times Super Bowl participant during your days in buffalo down helping up with the CBS broadcasting this week in Atlanta. After having competed in knows did you did unfortunately night ending in a win. But you probably learned a lot. What's the one thing? That's blatantly underrated in preparation for the Super Bowl in your mind. I think it's the distraction. I think these guys that football players in the NFL are creatures of habit. They get into a week long routine of you know, to Monday come back review the game put it away Tuesday's your day Wednesday heart practice, first and second down Wednesday or Thursday. Third down passing game Friday situational red zone. Two minutes. Short yardage goal line Fridays. Saturdays, a walk through, you know, just a real routine way to do things throughout the season. And then when you get to the Super Bowl that routine is absolutely thrown out the window the amount of energy that you are accustomed to spending during the week to get ready for the game is used up by Thursday. And you've got to kind of kick it into gear, and wait, and wait and wait until Sunday gets there. You've got extra distractions extra media responsibilities. Events. You gotta go to you've got family and friends and all that stuff, and you're normal amount of energy that you use up to get to the game has already used up mid week. So it's really hard to extend that and get ready to play in that game. Knowing that somebody keeps moving it down the road on you. So having the patriots haven't been there as often as they have three in a row now, you know, a little bit something about back the back to backs that's a major plus for the patriots going into this game in your mind. I think it's a major plus. Yeah, they were here just here last year and in a game that they lost. They're gonna have a chip on their shore. They're going to have a routine now, the only thing that does make it less of a routine is the fact that it's in Atlanta, Minneapolis like it was a year ago. The city always makes it a little bit unique facilities where you're meeting your workout places during the week where you're getting treatment whether your home of the way the away team. That's always an issue for the teams that are in the Super Bowl. But even that, you know, this is the third time in a row for the patriots. That's not gonna be a less of going to be less of a distraction and less of an inconvenience. So I think it's a major advantage for the patriots one of the scenarios one of the thought process lines. I'm hearing for those who are picking the Rams leaning toward the Rams rooting for the Rams are the one way that you can get Brady at least partially off his game is by pressure straight up the guy that if you get in his. Face. You can make his life more difficulties. Graded seeing the Patras you're boarding the Patras stepping around the past rush stepping up in the pocket. He does all those things as well. As anybody else? That's why the greatest of all time. But if you just get straight into his face straight up the middle. You can actually knock them a little bit of his game. And Rams have to really good tackled in Aaron Donald and consume. You buy any of that? Yeah. Sure. But I think the patriots will have a plan for it. Do you can bet the ball come out of there before they can either get there? The patriots. There's no question that Brady doesn't throw when he's office platform when he's off balance when he sideways, he doesn't he's not a Patrick Mahomes. You can throw some any platform, and he level sidearm over the top across his body or opening your shoulders, you hardly ever see him in that position to throw the ball like that. And that's why teams tried to get him to do it to throw it off bounds to throw it on the move. If you can get him to do that. He is less accurate, and you do you do have a greater chance of success. But you know, the patriots are going to have a plan for it. And that's what's going to happen. That's going to be the real intriguing thing early in this game. See what the Rams can do. And how fast they can get him off balance. Right..

What came to we came to realize he has a fifty five percent completion percentage because he always throws it down the field. He never takes the check down. He always takes the rough. His own rip off the big chunk on the last game of the season. They finally Brian table. The office coordinator, you know, him from the patriots. He was with Alabama two years ago when they'd be Clemson so Brian Cabell the offensive coordinator finally got the message through to Josh Allen say listen in this last game. Let's see if we can just take the completions. So he does that complete sixty percent of his balls scores. Forty two points on the dolphins and looked really good doing it. That's why they're so optimistic in buffalo. You can point to tangible stuff every game. That says you know, what he's getting better and better every week between old line running back wide receiver. What is gonna do with their first pick in the draft the bills you mean when I say my bad bells? Offense of line. I think this I think they almost dick dictated to I think they feel like that's where they're gonna make the most improvement. If they can get enough guys up front to protect Josh Allen and move some people around in the run game. They will be able they'll probably dip heavily into three ages. You got eighty seven million dollars to spend and really just really to positions. They want to shore up and that is offensive line and wide receiver if they can get some offense lineman. I think they're going to be exponentially better. See Tasker CBS sport football analyst and former buffalo Bill our guest here on CBS sports radio right enough bills question, but I want an eight. Yup. On the bills. I know how much, you know, about the bells day many times about participant during your days in buffalo down helping out with the CBS broadcasting this week in Atlanta. After having competed in knows that you dead unfortunately night ending in a win. But you probably learned a lot. What's the one thing? That's blatantly underrated in preparation for the Super Bowl in your mind. I think it's the distraction. I think these guys that football players the NFL are creatures of habit. They get into a week long routine of you know, to Monday come back review the game put it away Tuesday's your day off Wednesday heart practice, first and second down Wednesday or Thursday. Third down passing game Friday situational red zone. Two minutes. Short yardage goal line Fridays. Saturdays, a walk through, you know, just a real routine way to do things throughout the season. And then when you get to the Super Bowl that routine is absolutely thrown out the window the amount of energy that you are accustomed to spending during the week to get ready for the game is used up by Thursday. And you've got to kind of kick it into gear, and wait, and wait and wait until Sunday gets there. You've got extra distractions extra media responsibilities events. You gotta go to you've got family and friends and all that stuff. And you're normal amount of energy that you use up to get to the game already used up a bit week. So it's really hard to extend that and get ready to play in that game. Knowing that somebody keeps moving down the road on you. So having the patriots haven't been there as often as they have three in a row now, you know, a little bit something about backed up. Back to backs. That's a major plus for the patriots going into this game in your mind. I think is a major plus. Yeah, they were here just here last year and in a game that they lost. They're going to have a chip on their shore. They're going to have a routine now, the only thing that does make it less of a routine is the fact that it's in Atlanta, Minneapolis like it was a year ago. The city always makes it a little bit unique the facilities where you're meeting your workout places during the week where you're getting treatment whether your home of the way the away team. That's always an issue for the teams that are in the Super Bowl. But even that, you know, this is the third time in a row for the patriots. That's not gonna be a less of going to be less of a distraction and less of an inconvenience. So I think it's a major advantage for the patriots one of the scenarios one of the thought process lines. I'm hearing for those who are picking the Rams leaning toward the Rams rooting for the Rams are the one way that you can get. Brady at least partially off his game is by pressure straight up the guy that if you get in his face, you can make his life more difficulties. Graded seeing the Patras your boarding pass routes stepping around the pass rush stepping up in the pocket. He does all of those things as well. As anybody else? That's why he's the greatest of all time. But if you just get straight into his face straight up the middle. You can actually knock them a little bit off his game. And the Rams have to really good tackled in Aaron Donald and. You buying any of that? Yeah. Sure. But I think the patriots will have a plan for it. You can bet the ball come out of there before they can either get there. The patriots will there's no question that Brady doesn't throw. Well, when he's his platform when he's off balance when he sideways, he doesn't he's not a Patrick Mahomes. You can talk from any platform any level sidearm over the top across his body or opening these shoulders, you hardly ever see him in that position to throw the ball like that. And that's why teams tried to get him to do it to throw it off balance to throw it on the move. If you can get him to do that. He is less accurate, and you do you do have a greater chance of success. But you know, the patriots are going to have a plan for it. And. That's what's going to happen. That's going to be the real intriguing thing early in this game. And see what the Rams can do. And how fast they can get him off balance night..

"zeh jones" Discussed on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA

"Couple of topics in today and one of the things we will do with our next guest. We're going to talk to him a lot about the Super Bowl. But we'll also talk about the team that he played for for the majority of his career during his time in the NFL the Buffalo Bills. I started today show saying we need to turn the page on teams that aren't Super Bowl. Rams patriot. Yeah. You got an important game to play kinda get your focus in your interest on that game. Next Sunday, call the Super Bowl. But for everybody else, you got to look ahead. This evening is over. Whether you get screwed by a referee, or you hate the overtime rule or you didn't your kicker at the upright and the crossbar and bounced to the ground. Sorry. Bears fans your season's done. So you need to look forward. And I came up with one little that. I thought was catchy line as to where the team should be sitting going forward for the Buffalo Bills. I haven't done the AFC east yet for the bills. My line would be someone other than our quarterback will lead us in rushing next year, right? All right. Josh on lead the bills in rushing this year. So I wanna put that line and a couple of bills question for we'll get into the Super Bowl would our next guest. He is part of the builds all fame we'll economic to have them as part of our broadcast team here at CBS. He also does some radio work for are up in Boston talking bills football state Tasker joins us here on CBS sports radio. How you've been stayed. I'm doing great. How's it going? Good understand. You just landed in Atlanta. And it's seventy five and sunny right only in your dream. Yeah. It is is better than buffalo though. Which? You went south and you got nine degrees warmer. Yeah. Exactly. Not exactly summer weather down there in Atlanta. But it'll it'll be fine by game time 'cause it'd be seventy two indoor's enclosed do you heard mine line for the bills I'm moving on for all teams in the National Football League other than the patriots? And the Rams because they kind of got a game left to play. You're at my line of someone other than your quarterback is going to lead your team in rushing next year. Are they? Oh, yeah. For sure it's it's it's interesting to the bills come out end up with a six and ten record. And you know, we do radio both blow constantly were there on everyday talking about the bills, and it would be I don't know maybe impossible to think of another team history that has been more optimistic after a six and ten season of the Buffalo Bills fan base is it's it's been they really enjoyed watching. Josh allen. Even though they know it's not going to be sustainable for him to leave them it rushing. It was a young kid who really got better by leaps and bounds during the season. They just want the season to keep going. So it's a pretty optimistic atmosphere in buffalo headed into the off season. I can buy into that. Because I I like down coming out in the draft. And I thought he had a damn good year. I missed a couple of games with an injury. Then came back really did play well both running and throwing the football bite who is going to lead them in rushing. If it's not going to be Josh Allen. Shady have anything left in the tank. Why is he still a Bill at this point? Yeah. I think he does. I mean, he's the thing is shady last year. They their offense line don't they lost from the start of the two thousand seventeen seasons to the game of two thousand eight season. They lost their starting left tackle starting left guard in the starting center also offense of line that helps them lead the league in rushing a couple of times, and it was top five for the three previous years, and they didn't recover from. In fact, the to retirement they traded cordy Glenn the left tackle because he did not sit the colts the new culture that they moved almost the entire two thousand seventeen season. They had a good left tackle in Dhaka young rookie who actually stepped up and played pretty well. But they lost Richie incognito and Eric would injury their center and right guard or less guard, and they could not replace him. It both retirements were unexpected. And the bills could not find guys to replace them. And they struggled all year. Because of it and they're running game struggle with Shawn McCoy still has some stuff left in the tank, but by about week eight or so it was just too tough for him to stick his nose in their take a couple of extra yards. Kept trying to bounce that kept trying to make something happen in the run game. And I couldn't get it done. Chris ivory actually had a much better second half of the year because he was much more content to just barrel in take a hard run inside the tackles pretty shoulder ended just trying to get whatever yardage was there. He was actually more productive at the end of the season. So if the bills can fix their office of line troubles. They will I think the Sean McCoy will be part of their plans. And I think he'll bounce back with a much better. You know, I think it speaks to kind of year that Alan had because they really didn't have a rushing attack. They watch their offensive line come apart and Zeh Jones a really nice possession receiver. But he's not a game breaking wide out by any stretch of the imagination and Kelvin Benjamin. For me. Was a massive disappointment wide receiver short running backs. Not good enough offensive line fell apart. How did Josh Allen? Do what he did. Well, he did it because he's a he's the biggest guy on the field. He's fast. He can outrun a lot. Well, he got run every linebacker. They faced in the second half of the year when he came back from his injury. He really and his arm is unbelievable that they started throwing the depot he's he the kid. Josh really loves to throw the football. Daiki pushes it down the field. And you know, it's interesting because his the knock on him coming out last year was a fifty five percent completion percentage at Wyoming, and you get it and you see him and you seem in practice. You see him throwing his like he throws it accurately wherever you're throwing in. What came to we came to realize he has a fifty five percent completion percentage because he always throws it down the field. He never takes the check down. He always takes the rough. He's always rip off the big chunk in the last game of the season. They finally able the office coordinator, you know, him from the patriots. He was with Alabama two years ago when they'd be Clemson so Brian Cabell the offensive coordinator finally got the message through to Josh Allen say and listen in this last game. Let's see if we can just take the completions. So he does that complete sixty percent of his ball scores. Forty two points on the dolphins and looked really good doing it. That's why they're so optimistic in buffalo. You can point to tangible stuff every game. That says you know, what he's getting better and better every week between all line running back wide receiver. What a is gonna do with their first pick in a draft the bills you mean when I say bad bells? Offense. If line I think this I think they they're almost dick dictated to I think they feel like that's where they're gonna make the most improvement if they can get enough guys up front to protect Josh Allen and move some people around in the run game. They will be able they'll probably dip heavily into free agency. They've got eighty seven million dollars to spend and really just really to positions. They want to shore up and that is offense of line and wide receiver if they can get some offense lineman. I think they're gonna be exponentially better.
