Baltimore Afterglow

"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. You know all these plays helped win the game at filon. I like that he had again. That's why i'm not as worried about the gerald mcchord thing if he's out because filon did pretty well. You know littleton quietly. Had ten tackles. He had a nice thing apron. Did pretty well. He can really turn it on. That'd be good giving our net. What have been saying about damon net. Let's see they've been saying all these things about them bellizzi. In the regular season he played one. Snap defensely so guys like our net and farrell and rogue still have to come on but again it's not gonna be perfect right away. It's not canon. Jake did some nice things at tara was it was a good win because you know what it's a win and they're all good and they had to win because the afc west is off for no for the first time since two thousand two. I didn't like that mountain. Kunz was inactive. i want my third round. Pick to be ready to play. Here's oh injuries on him but again it's all working properly it's hourly. Let's let's finish this. Show a little steam atop steers. Just as interesting and the raiders in week. One they're down fourteen zero at home. Underdog steelers on the road. Doing really good buffalo team down ten zero. Halftime offense was the craps and they turn it on. They turned it on in the second. Half big ben hit his receiver. Big ben look slow and he whipped cooks for the games but he made plays when he needed to ninety harris. The rookie from alabama played fifty eight snaps. Expect him to play life. The deal in pittsburgh is the defense. Tj what in-company mak- fitzpatrick. They're gonna come after you so there is often line asked the play while they have to predict car that they have to run the ball. More than waller has to show up in the first fifteen minutes of the game. You know we'll go go steal this game. Go start to know against two good. Abc north opponents. That will go a long way. They're in good shape right now. It's promising start is again. Perfect now is not perfect anyway listen. Paragon can't see denver by any means one period with the charges. But they're all wanna know answered good star going to be a good division and it's a good day. You should be happy. you know. The raiders won. They put on overshadow the whole country's talking about what they saw last night. And that's your team. What do i say there was only seventeen of these now so you got to enjoy it. We talk about this crap for twenty three sixty five. Enjoy the victories their special. So there you go. It was fine line between win loss. You won you're happy.

Podcast tidy thing here and up next. Jon gruden jon. Gruden greeted the media on the opening day training camp. Which was tuesday. that's yesterday for some of. You are listening to this on wednesday as it's released and jon gruden spoke about what it's going to be like this season for some faces that the raiders really are looking forward to seeing he talked about divine diablo's injuries while so i have an update on that in this podcast. So here we go with. Jon gruden and i what. He's looking forward to seeing out of a guy named nicholas more row. he's one of my most. I guess he might be one of my favorite players. This is his time. You know if you know anything about morrow you have to tell me where he went to college were exactly that is he comes from a very obscure background. If you watch them play college football he was returning kickoffs. He was playing all over the place. He comes to the raiders. He makes it as a rookie. He finds a way to get on the field and now he's got a chance. I think be a captain for us. I think he's got a chance to be a different difference maker force in the middle of our defense but time will tell. We got a long way to go. But i really like him. He's at a great spring. And i think he's on the rise. I think his time is right now. Yeah music can run. He can really ronnie played safety at clemson. No offseason program. No i'm not making excuses. It was tough on them and then he got hurt. So here's another draft choice that is completely an unsolved mystery but he's healthy. He's ready to go. Richard smith has been coaching linebackers for the last thirty years in this league. He likes him. He's going to be a special teams contributor. i know that Divine diablo tweak disney yet a knee procedure done. We expect to have him back in the next couple weeks. But here's another young guy that can really run the as a bright i really alert. i think understanding of football. And he's got a big upside for us. Ally ward angry banking great now among the out years ago. Where you're i don't know who does all these grades you know. We got a lot of grades out there. My grades aren't very good. So i don't agree with a lot of the greats but you know feral. He's a good player. he's he's a good player. He's unique i think he's unique because he can play right in he can play left and he's a good run defender. I think he's his best pass. Rush might be inside and you saw that against the jets when we allowed him to do that last year but certainly he's going to be competing. He and carl nasa who had had a really good spring You know they're going to have to earn their snaps and If you know clean no he will compete and you probably should count on him. Being a big part of this have no idea how much. I'm excited about. Those guys i i mean. I think i hurt my arm. I'll again rogues when you walked in today you know rugs got hurt. In the first game last year against carolina. I think he caught a bomb and then we ran a quick out in charlotte. He got hurt. Man is to play a little bit against new orleans but then he missed the patriot. Game missed a couple of games on any head cova. Look he's sees the difference maker with his speed. You know he can beat you bad with speed and i think The more experience he gets with their With brian with hunter renfro and waller and guys. I think the better and better. He's going to get. And i think he learned from al aguilar and we're gonna miss nelson aguilar and that's one of the reasons why john brown is here because brown can make big plays at top speed and he could teach henry you know how to run certain routes that he hasn't run before but it's a unique group of receivers. They're great guys. And i don't want anybody to forget zeh jones. I don't think we have a better conditioned athlete than zeh jones. And keelan dos is another guy that if you saw when he got here and you saw him when he walked in. Today it would. It would really impress you. He's obviously going to compete to derrick carl. So had the opportunity to speak. And i really was interested as i asked jon gruden about the chemistry building between car and some of the receivers and that's also card discussed in his media availability on wednesday. So here's a little nugget. From derek carr on that one thing i it's been nice because we've had some carryover in the last couple of years. You know to where you know not only is it a new guy run a new route. You know. know when you're adding people smoke right here. Not only is he coming in. And he's a new guy learn how he cuts on. Certain routes l. cut differently you know and they all wanted to run around certainly certainly different. But you're teaching them. Assist them to well. We don't have a lot of guys like that. You know it's really him. Willie some of the young guys but you know hunters plagues as played you know. Brian has played in this offense tanneries plate in this offense you know in it. It helps the the relationship part. You know Going forward you've played games with these guys. So when i'm like hey remember such and says play in denver you know hey third third third out of the game. I need you to need you to run it like this. You know more like this and they have recall of that whereas with a whole bunch of new guys makes it harder. Because you don't have that you know you just kind of talking through it watching it on tv screen. And then now. I needed to do it physically. So having only a few of those guys it helps. Because you're not you're not having to kind of teach guy. Can you do it like this. Or i know you. Did it like that. But i just feel comfortable if you do it like this. You know. kinda mixing those worlds and really with these guys We spend so much time together. You know i. I would challenge these guys in the off season. You know just to see what they would say. You know. it's our off time. We don't have any thing that we have to do but they'd be like hey let's throw it back. Perfect see at five forty five you know and they'd be like deal like every one of them to the man was like. Yeah see there. And that i was just kind of just testing them. I just want to see if they'd be like well. Can we go eight. can we go. I just want to see what they'd say. And they were like deal. So i was like dang i gotta wake up you know but it was impressive because when you do something like that you you grow certain bonds with guys and i think our relationships or strong so i'm excited about it translates as it transitions into your to getting the ball. Low of more alive is on plays. Call all building confidence with you. John is he getting point. Do you feel like we're guys. He's starting to show you the things that you need to see. Jon gruden needs to see the remarkable the point. Yeah i think so. It's hard because you know without the pads and without like those live reps you know it's hard but like from where we're at right now. I would say absolutely you know You know this is the one thing that's different about this not high school. Where like it's like. Mom's gonna throw to my favorite guy you know like i don't care if the players we'll make it work you know you know this. This has a lot of it has to do with you. Know we have a guy there and waller you know it's hard to you know if you're calling the place it's hard to not call his number every time you know and you know. I think that henry is getting into that place. Where i think that i think the feeling is like he wants it. You know like and he's going to not ask for it. He's just going to show you if that if i hopefully. I made that picture correct. You know and it's it's it's exciting. I think everyone that saw him. I mean he looks bigger. You know You know he's he's hopefully. I'll get him to roller sleeves. Up a little bit you know and so those guns off but he you could tell the mindset was. I'm going to go work to be better at what i think i need to be better at. And when he showed back up the the violence he was running his routes with the speed he was coming off the ball with. You made you okay. You know like it was like you could feel it. You know as as mr mac would say you could feel his speed. You could feel his presence. And i think the more he just gets comfortable in this offense. He's definitely comfortable around me. Comfortable around dressy then. He's hugging him joking with him. You know all that and those are all good songs for hopefully being able to give we. I wish everybody could catch one hundred balls. You know i really do but again. It's hard to take away from. Darren when he's been so productive and and good for us you know if darren had you know w r next to his name and the depth chart no one would care. You know the fact that it's a tight end. Why don't we get to you. Know that just is what it is. You know if if if henry can show when we put the pads on. And all that which i'm fully confident he will. Yeah absolutely. i could see that happening. Here's some thoughts as my takeaways. I wrap things up from training camp. It really interesting to start seeing how the nfl is dealing with cova protocols with players with media with staff how things are starting to come back to the norm that we're used to and i'm going to tell you it won't be one hundred percent everything that you're used to but as for me we're starting to see it returned to normalcy. We're starting to see that. We can be in the same rooms. As jon gruden derek carr booth came into. The room is the first time i hadn't been on zoom call since march twenty twenty which was pretty amazing being that we're now to look these guys in the eye. We're able to develop that report with them. And that's something that i've said all along is very important for reporters to do when we're trying to report and bring back facts to you about a team is when we can look somebody in the i. It's not just about the answer that they're giving it's about the body language it's about the presence that they have when they're answering it. You can tell if somebody liked or didn't like your question right off the bat so it's always a good thing to be able to see that return for us to be able to speak to all the players and the coaches and to have that accessibility again. It's really important for what we do. And i'm glad that i was able to see that as far as being on the field i tell you a lot of hungry readers out there. A lot of aggressive raiders out there a lot of readers that are listening and paying such close attention to the coaches and all that they have to offer as they get into training camp. You see so many fresh faces as well with the rookies and undrafted free agents. That were brought in this year. And i'm still looking for who is going to spark. I'm keeping my eyes out on jimmy morrissey on the offensive line. I'm keeping my eyes. Out on dylan's donor in the wide way. Receiver department dj. Turner's well. who. Jon gruden mentioned. And i'm looking courses see. What a lot of the defensive rookies that they brought in or going to do malcolm coons when divine diablo comes back. Maybe we can get more of a glimpse of him in the coming weeks. But i really can't wait for everything to play out. Especially as jon gruden mentioned earlier and you could hurt this on the i ten. Podcast if you subscribe to that. He talked about the secondary and in that secondary with tyree. Gillespie coming in with demon our net would nevin lawson with guys like casey hayward with trayvon molin And so many other names. That i could just go on and on and how they're going to shake out who is in what position. What a nickle package looks like. Who's going to be up there when they're playing three deep. It's one of these things that we don't know yet and we're going to have to wait and see how it all plays out in camp and so to me. That's the most exciting thing to be watching right. Now is the secondary and the cornerbacks and safeties. How everything will play out for them. Because i was going to be an area that really needs to improve for the raiders to make a push for the playoffs and the twenty twenty one season. But that'll do it for me here today on the takeaways edition of the vegas nation. Podcast make sure to keep up with all of your readers. News on vegas nation dot com as well as lv rj dot com.

Roster bubble talk

"Hey everybody on this bill waves and this is bad. This is our weekly podcast. I appreciate you being with me. It is tuesday thumb and right now we have all kinds of great stuff. We have three new guys all know their stuff. Petey williams mark. Johnson matt holder. They're all doing lancaster. I'll posting and it's great and we're strong so appreciate you being with me. Today's cut down day. Usually i do my podcast late in the afternoon but they today's campbell we're day. We all have our weird days. And i had to do this. Prior that cut down. So the raiders have to make three cuts. They made a couple yesterday. You know the big down is next. Tuesday we'll have you covered there and we're getting closer we know who's on the bubble who's not guys who are making pushes. There's been two preseason games. i think the preseason is gone. Well for the raiders. I felt the same way about the rams game. His idea about the seahawks game is that things work like their word. We really don't know there if the team as a whole is going to be improved. Because we haven't seen many starters. I think it was a projected. Seventeen starters didn't play against seattle in week one of the preseason and then last week against iran. i think it was eighteen. Projected starters didn't play. Andre james the santer who played in the first game in place of obviously feel like he's ready to go. Nick martin is isn't gonna beat him out on. That was never really developed at all. And that's positive for for andre james. Obviously i mean the raiders. Feel great about him. They if they if they didn't feel good about him they would have found a way to keep ronnie hudson right but they didn't they feel good about this guy he just played one preseason game night in the whole game he only has one. Nfl regular-season news bell. So if you're not playing him in the second game obviously they think he's in tablist. Guidance can be interesting see and obviously. This guy is a key to the offense and their success. Writing hudson was the engine of that team and james is going to have to be as well. So yeah raiders. Got some injuries. Linebacker wouldn't be surprised by timmy. Listen to this. They have a new linebacker on the team. They tried out markets. Skews me mark barron. Who hadn't played in the nfl since two thousand nineteen sat out last year on skies thirty one years old he was never seven overall. Pick in two thousand twelve out of alabama another alabama guy. And we'll see if they sign him morals hurt job whites. Her nick is hurt. you know. Maybe they signed gay. Jay right reportedly vinnie from vegas paper. A friend of this program in the site he says you know money may be an issue there so we'll see but i expect some linebacker news to come out yet back to the rams game the program looks right. The guys look like they're ready to play again. They're mostly backups. But they were ready to play on defense again. Mostly backups but the schemes. Look good the player that they're not the guys on the field didn't give many big place again they're planning. It's backups to. Nobody seemed to be out of place. That's what the raiders are excited about. They're excited about gus bradley. They're excited about how much these guys like each other. And how much they they they pull for each other. I know there's some talk about you. Know there's too much fights with the rams on those two days it was groom said on tuesday. I don't want that. It's not competitive. It stupidity that was his word. It's to pity they went out and they fought you much with the rams takes to detangle both teams problems but they they thought too much. I know some people say well and then mark. Josh jacobs goes. Hey who i like. I will this team. I like the way we stood up for each other. and kind. you know indicated that the rams didn't quite do that what are you can look at it as two different things you can say. Yeah the raiders are sticking up for one another but you guys say well. The rams are being more disciplined. And that's what you want because you can't fight on a football field you just can't. It's not gonna work if these guys meet in a dirk. Allie will then go for guys. But that's not going to happen. They're gonna teams me on football fields. And you have to be disciplined. And that's why gruden was pissed because he knows that it's not gonna work so yeah but the fact that this team rights each other. That is a big deal as well. So the razor excited. They're younger cautiously optimistic. They they liked the way they went. There ones went against the rams. You know they they hung in there with the rams they did both sides. Heather moments both side had not so great. Moments of the raiders. Defense did well hundred. Renfro got the best data jalen ramsey a couple of times. That's exciting giant razor excited about j.j zeh jones's well they think he's going to be in the rotation so the more the better right. I haven't seen heard much about john. john brown. We'll see but if you know. I'm not saying he's not going to be a factor but if he can be somewhat a factor in jj zaid's jones who has not been a factor for the reason twenty six games thirty four catches in twice as gain. Really's been a non factor. He can be somewhat of a factor. It's gonna be great and and they're excited about rods and they're excited about edwards. I'm really interested to see what happens on sunday against the forty niners. Will jon gruden play the main guys. We just talked about not. These guys haven't got much play. Well you know. He was asked about it on saturday game and he was vague. It almost sounds like he's not gonna play the guy's much cows. The forty niners is gonna play starters. He's playing our stirs. I don't think that's going to affect john. Gruden's plan it. Shouldn't you know stick to your guns. Whatever your plan is we'll see. We'll see derek targets on the field. I mean i would think that byron byron edwards needs to play a little bit. He hasn't played much. Nfl football he needs to play a little bit. You know 'cause the wedge coming on against the ravens in robeson hit him guy. They have to go. They have to go. James has to go. The defense has to go on that. That stuff counts. You know so you know. It's gonna be interesting to see what happens. And i don't blame him if he doesn't start guys because the last thing. You is a superstar a night at a superstar just a solid starter to get hurt and mr frigging season. You don't want that. It's not worth it. You know we're talking about back. Do you know how to jump around especially this time of year. There's so much to talk about. You know linebackers. There's top of the cowboys may cutter trae jaylen smith. I know he. He's this guy who has i- elbow out of ability and he's made plays he slipped the last couple of years. But you know. The raiders needs some help at linebacker. Maybe he's the guy who look at. I'm not saying nothing. i'm just saying. Keep an eye on it. You know Where's the bubble going to be. I you know. I think that never lawson could be in trouble. A meek robinson has has had a decent preseason and he needed. He's been overshadowed by hobbs and i can't believe we're frigging eight minutes into the show. I haven't met mansion nate hops. he's been tremendous. This guy is gonna play a lot. He's made wow plays in. Both of those preseason games. He's gonna be on the field. You the raiders are due to get a jam in the fifth round. They got max crosby course to us yet but we don't have to sit here and hash all their troubles in the draft especially in the secondary and maybe they hit this guy. That doesn't make up for any mrs but it certainly helps kuntsler decent which was nice because you know he was kind. Kinda slow Let's see him come on if they can get anything out him. That'd be great you know farrell's had a good preseason but again he's going into this guy who's been a starter so i wanna see him. Do well against the top guys. In this season. I've talked about that morgues looked good. More is a good in practice in the games. I i said more saved the draft and i stand by that i think more is going to be a really good player and if you can build around hobson morgan in the backfield that that's pretty good so that should be excited about that. I'll be excited that. There's some some hope isaiah johnson is gonna play this week. He you know what happens to him. A ferret ear four round pick. What happens to him. He's got to do some things you know. Our guy matt holder likes what brandon parker's doing He's gonna probably make the team. I don't know if you're going to like him if he plays against ones. But you know he's going to make the team. I've been saying this. Expect the raiders to try to add some pieces of the offensive line and linebacker. I mean saying this for weeks and even so more so with the spat injuries at linebacker. It's gonna happen. You know the the final fifty three man roster is a misnomer it's the initial fifty-three rosser there's going to be continued to be tweet. There'll be some moves on wednesday. After tuesday's situation what happens is jalen rishard. Get back on the field. With with the raiders. What happens to him rackets and amines look good. They just not be much room. You know. I mean that's what we're looking for this week and that's kinda gruden said that. Hey i'm still trying to figure out who's gonna play. We know because we got some day. Try to make the team. I think that's what this week is about. So there's your show you know me i don't need a jammer jammer jammer. I don't like the way i sound. You probably don't either so i don't need to keep going just getting get out making smarter raider fans. That's always my goal so thanks for listening. Everybody will be back next week. We'll be back every week and again beatty and markets and matt. There are studs. enjoy them. Read them listen to them. All right. this is bill williamson this silver and by pride you take it easy. be save. Be happy donte next week.

It's the raiders postgame edition. We have to see who's healthy and there's going to be special teams considerations. We got a lot of things to consider. I'm not gonna say too much today but there were some guys that got a great opportunity for three straight weeks to showcase where they are what they're capable gone and we'll do what we think is right for our team until the post game edition the biggest nation. Podcast tidy thing here with vinny any bonsignore and ed grainy. Both of them are out in santa clara. Where the raiders. Finish out the preseason with a loss to the forty niners and we're gonna break all of that down for you. Because i think most importantly the takeaways from this game is not the final score. But what the raiders were able to evaluate in it. So we'll break that all down but first this podcast. Don't forget to hit subscribe number one and we're also brought to you. I station casinos. Stn download the app today. And get up to a five hundred dollar bonus when you sign up There's been a lot of talk about the running back for position as far as how many roster spots they're going to have because allegation goals lockton josh jacobs as well as kenyan drake. So in that spot where we know jalen restart is injured Where do you think ed they go here with. Jalen rishard still injured questionable for the start of the season. We got to see more. Bj trae us. What have you made at this battle. You know what. Heidi i mean. They do have to finish out a four until they know what Jalen shards injury. And how long it's gonna be out. I mean obviously a really long time. We've seen trae reagan's cgm's they're gonna have to decide and maybe they both make it Probably not but. I think you know ragusa started today and i think he's probably got an inside track on that spot and then there's gonna have to see how jalen restart comes. I think running back. Maybe is not is You know i guess controversial its bad words as linebacker secondary defensive line might be in terms of the cuts to mate though when you have jalen rashard sitting out there not being able to perform in brings into little interest to the position when they tried to get down to fifty three on tuesday. That is going to be something to keep an eye on. There's a lot of guys that i'm sure are on the bubble and vinnie. I wanted to go to john brown on this one because he was out there and i know a lot of the starters didn't even come down to santa clara so that doesn't seem to be a good sign for john brown having to get more reps in in a preseason game vinnie. What do you think is going on there. A little bit conspicuous. But jon gruden talked about afterwards You know he's been dinged up in training camp hasn't gone on a run So far so. I think he just wanted to get one last. Look and see where John fits into this into this offense now. That could just be kind of coach. Talk for you know. Giving him a little bit of a benefit of doubt or or not a major heads up that something is looming but it is a little bit conspicuous. When you know one year quote unquote rotational guys. Plays in a game like this. A veteran rotational guy plays in a game. Like this jon gruden you know made it kinda sound like. He just wanted to get a look at him and shake off some of the rest. But you can't overlook the fact that you know. A guy of his stature was playing in a game of the of this meaning which wasn't not wasn't a lot of meaning to it and to follow up on that i wanna get your takes vinnie on some of the guys that we did see out there. I wanna start with gerald mccoy. He actually got some game time in here so i wanted to just get your take on. How up first of all in condition he is and secondly how up to the challenge. She is of getting into nfl speed and playing again or he looked really good. And i think the raiders if he stays healthy you know Those a fortuitous signing the coin to be a for to assigning he was his get off He he's just so strong and so fast you know and i think playing in a with with better players around him when the starters come back and when things are getting schemed up and you know there's actually a game plan. I think what he does shows up even more so today it was just him winning one on one battles in creating some havoc showing bursts showing That he they was healthy Quickness and power and all of those things and to me he displayed all of that. so of. you're the raiders. This was a huge step in the right direction for gerald mcquaid. Angry and other guys. I wanted to get your take on it. I karl joseph. Because he's got into game action and then isaiah johnson. After that i tell me what you thought. When you saw karl joseph out there he had a couple of key plays in this game. We'll listen heidi the first thing you said or one of the first things you said vinnie was not a lot of people. Came on the raiders trip. You of course would have started at cornerback today. Because i don't think there was anyone ear of note. The carl joseph. I thought played really well. you know come back. And as he has and obviously i think he's. He's a for sure. Fifty three guy that i thought they needed to see him to get him some reps and to get them ready for the season isaiah johnson not so much He did not play well at all in corner and secondary are spots now where they're going to have to make some decisions with fifty three so if you ask me right now sitting here looking out at the field isaiah johnson. Yes no. I'd have to say no based on today in another sense that other guy would the opposite way i thought it was a big robertson. Who played great and special teams of vinnie. Asked him afterwards. I think he played inside at outside today. He really made a a good push himself on film To make this team so of the ones. We're talking about called joseph safety nick. You know he just needed reps make robertson. I think did himself a lot of favors. But i don't think isaiah. Johnson did i i this point after today. I'd probably be surprised more than not. If he's on fifty three. And just a follow up again. Here meek robertson. Somebody that jon gruden talked about in the post game press conference and said that ron mindless has worked wonders with them. I wanted to find out what you think about our net as well just to that respect of how. Well he's come. Along with ron melissa and his defense i think come along really well. I thought he played well today. I thought the three that really stood out where net Josephine and robertson. I think dana plato. Look i mean and vinnie's written about it. I mean david. Art has has something to prove the season if he wants to continue all during station has contracts and a realm here. We're after the season you know guys are usually picked up or the writings on the wall. So i think damon are net has responded in camp. He looked really good today and he's going to get an opportunity. They weren't good in the secondary last year. So whoever's playing well at a given time is probably going to be on the field for them. So i thought damon are net again. They'll go back. Look this elvis. Jon gruden said but i think when they do look the film. He's gonna shine more than not updating locals. No the sports app is the most trusted sports but in nevada.

It's going to be called fast takes. Who's on the bubble. And so i wanted to get first of all. We're going to look at the running back position who they keep to the fifty three man roster and whether you agree or disagree with the guys that i think the raiders will have their and of course. I'm gonna start here with running backs. 'cause i think quarterbacks tied in a pretty lockdown we know they're gonna keep three running backs. Excuse me three quarterbacks. We know they're going to keep the three tight ends soda running back. I think on number four. That's where we're going to have a little bit a question so we have right now. Josh jacobs allegation. Gold kenyan drake for my four. I put trae rigas. I think maybe say themselves. They hit with the three and a half million. The jalen restart is do well. I think Jaylen starts season on injured reserve That's just my gut feeling at this point. Senior with a walking boot couple of days ago so the key starts a season on injuries. Irv advise the a little bit of time with him. and i think Agai trae reagan makes the team but whether he suits up or not not quite sure. I think you'll be okay. with alec ingold As fullback and kenyan drake and josh jacobs as your as your two backs Each game You know to. Will you know trey if he if he's on the team get suited up. I don't know. I don't know if you necessarily need to especially with kenyan drake s- What he brings to the table his ability to catch. I think almost negates having to have that third running back. But i think for now anyway Jalen is on the injured reserve and trail. Mix with jim. Okay tell you ed. The wide receivers. We already figure henry rugs. Brian edwards hunter renfro zeh jones. Willie snead all make the team. I think they're keeping sakes so you think john brown was out there today. Getting another look at do you think that they keep with john brown or they brought in store owner. Dylan's donor to talk with the media after the game. Is this guy going to get a look or will it be somebody like. Dj turner has been running back. Kicks what do you think about this. I think you don't sleep on jones truck Okay before i answer that question. I'm gonna ask you really quick. I'm going off track yard. Because you mentioned quarterback vinny end you real quick question. Had marcus mariota played in one of these three games. Or maybe two games in looked really good Any i idealogical. You think would nathan peterman. Absolutely be on the fifty three come tuesday Not necessarily. I don't think it's necessarily the case that he is going to be on. The still is if you put through waivers. Is anyone gonna pick. What would you that. I don't think the team he threw five interceptions for nate. Peterman would be on the. If you're confident than petering. waivers put him on waivers. And then bring it back on your practice squad because you can you don't there's no restrictions on practice squad adore. You could have accrued ten years in the nfl and still been on the practice and silvio the practice. So there's your third quarterback not taking up fifty three van roster spot Because i don't even think you're going to address three quarterbacks in the game so maybe that's the way they do. I what do you think yeah at i. It's kind of a thing that i've been thinking about the more i see and play in the preseason is. Do you really need. I mean marcus. Mariota is there. He's been you know not really playing and practicing right now. But i think that the raiders are confident enough in him as a quarterback to be able to hold down the fort if anything should happen to car and if you do wanna make more room for somebody like keep john brown and and like we're talking about and maybe keep one of those other guys on the wide receiver department because greg olsen said. That's where the i think. A lot of troubles going to come when they make the cuts. He said it's going to be hard to figure out who has to go. The maybe they keep seven wide receivers and drop a quarterback. Go back down to two. It's possible i. I don't think anyone safe and i'm ready for some surprises so Ed go ahead and tell me now. What do you think about that. Wide receiver high. I think they're gonna go john brown for one reason. And one reason only mark stone of the golden knights is nicknamed donor and it is against the rules of the review journal to have to professional athletes in the in town. Both with the name stone. Or so i've gotta go. John all right let's move onto the o. Line vinnie. i think they're keeping eight. And i think we know. Andre james denzil good john. Simpson richie incognito. Alex leatherwood colt miller. Those guys are safe. Which brings me brandon parker. Nick martin are those the two other names that will round out the eight men making this roster john simpson makes it. I think nate arches me. And i think that Nick nick makes it on nick. Martin makes it as far as the swing tackle position and the brian parker probably had inside track. But i would not be surprised. Whatsoever if the raiders brought in somebody whether it's off the waivers waiver wire or in some sort of a trade. I'm not quite sure. There's a whole lot of confidence in that. Swing tackle position at the moment so add. Let's move onto these defensive bags because you had answered that so eloquently. We have right now on my list. I think they're keeping ten between cornerbacks and safeties. I think we have merrick. Abram hobbs gillespie robertson hayward molin our net and then that's where i have some question marks because we know that nixon's injured. Karl joseph will likely make this team. And does i'd say johnson make this team You know in light of the fact that nevin lawson will miss a couple of games. i just. i'm looking down the roster. And i'm trying to figure out who would be that tenth person. What do you think it. I don't think he makes. I mean if they base it on today which is kind of inverted him. Obviously but there's a reason they only brought half the team here and that was because here's your opportunity. We have to get things on film so they go back and look those film. i think they're going to cringe a little. I think the only chance a job spaces if like you said we know lawson's out and and there's injuries in maybe you keep them to begin with. But i don't know if you do that. I think binny's also make some really good points in terms of trying to creatively manufacture the best fifty three. And i think you'd have to make an argument in the room. A really hard argument to keep isaiah. Johnson i think you can look like you said okay. Do you keep an extra wide receiver. You keep an extra swing tackle like at this point. I think they're pretty good. Those first six or seven guys. I would move on from him and i'd probably take another wide. Receiver swing death. I'd probably make by move there and move on from him. And i don't think right now that there's any questions when we look at defensive tackle defensive ends i think those are pretty much all solidified because i haven't walkway crosby. Coons feral massive on the defensive. Ends mccoy thomas. Jefferson hankins dairies. Filon for the defensive tackles vinnie. Just finish this. My question marks lie with the linebackers because of so many injuries. Because of what's happening there right now. On the fact they just brought in denzel perryman. We don't know about some of these guys timelines when they come back Aside from you know knowing that littleton moral cookhouse gear their divine diablo. Who finishes out this six linebacker position. You have five guys there now. How how does this get rounded out. Yeah i think that you know I think divine diablo. Team steamatic tanner amusements the team. Obviously denzel perryman wrecks the team. And you just gotta hope that nick wykowski gets back healthy asap. Because i think i think they'll be okay with quick. Hausky cory littleton Denzel perryman and then. Obviously you know. You're you're looking at Tantrum mason and divine diablo behind them. It's gonna be a little bit tricky. They need to get nicholas moral back asap and once they do. I think they'll be fine but getting him back That bridge building that bridge to get back tomorrow is going to be a little bit dicey because you know what i saw today of divinely. Oslo lot rough around the edges. A big learning curve for the rookie from from virginia tech. And and tanner mrs well. It's it's hard to sit here and say that you'd have a whole bunch of confidence in playing those guys in extended Snaps at this point in their learning curve aso i was just wondering they're like the linebackers. The depth is concerning like you said there have been a but we'll see how it all pans out and that'll do it for us here today for ed and vinnie. They're both down in santa clara.

It's time for another takeaways edition of the biggest nation podcast. It's your host here, Heidi Bang and we are brought to you by door dash, Sunday ticket and favor I've got a very special guest lined up here. It's Mild Simmons. Those of you who've been longtime listeners of the biggest nation shows no that miles used to work with us and was one of the shows co host. He's now Carolina working as the senior writer and editor. For the team I was new big things are in store for him and because it's week one of the NFL season, the raiders are going into Carolina to face the panthers I had to get him on to give me a preview the game and break down what the panthers have to offer in this game with me before I do jump into that interview with miles. Let's hear from Raiders head coach Jon Gruden on the team's upcoming matchup against the panthers. Often used. Less while we brought. That to rookie stars tackle. On My. Office attack cast these never seen now or. Rookie. Running back. Last year rookie buy outs this year we I. Don't know how many rookies on beef. rebuilding date. Now, we're starting to see the products of labour we're openly Arnett. Roads Edwards were. Up to the challenge because Carolina. That was Jon Gruden and I'm so excited for this weekend. The first game of the season always feels like Christmas Day for me because I'm so passionate about this game and so is my guest this week Mile Simmons. So let's get into this interview with him right now as we preview the panthers versus the raiders. Have a good old friend joining me today. I'm so excited to have you on Mile Simmons. He's now with the panthers a senior writer over there. So big move up for you. Yeah. No but it's not like you guys that there in Las Vegas we had our time was far short. It was and you know especially, in Vegas, you would we would actually able to be in the studio together like because usually we were socially distance like this Ni in my apartment just talking to you over really is just like Old Times they vegas is a very transient town so. It's a thing if you may people they come in and they they leave your life. But the good thing about what we were able to do is we had a friendship above all. So I'm so happy to have you on today and first of all, how is Carolina treating you? It's good. You know it's funny because of just the time when I moved here, I haven't really done much but. In the last couple of weeks. I. Guess Get out of the apartment a little bit and actually go see some football since we've been able to see practice but other than that. Yeah it's been a lot of. Getting used to humidity again, you know after living on the west coast or as long as I have. I. Mean What they say about it being a dry heat is true. That I don't Miss Humidity I lived on the East Coast for my fair share a time and let's don't miss that humidity that just weighs on you where you feel like you've gotta take a shower every three hours because this is. All over you but UH. Is Football weather coming up upon us now and somebody who has always caught my attention on the panthers I'm just going to start here because he's such a monster he does it all. He's Mr Versatile S Christian McCaffrey CMC helped win me fantasy championship last year as well. I might add but. Can't get my hands on this year any league I've drafted but what's it like day in day out to watch a player like that even though he's probably going like seventy percent if at all because I'm sure they're trying not to get him to many reps right now keep them fresh for the season. So what's it like to watch somebody like him? Yeah. You can tell how league he is at. It's just it's really easy to see I mean even on even takes a handoff third guys that you know our special and he's one of them and one of the things that people continue to do as rave about his work ethic. And just the way he works really really hard to make sure his body is in his best sheep was possible so that he can take many carries as he takes this as the only guy me last year Ted over four hundred touches and there's reason why you know he's been one of only three players history now to get over both thousand yard rushing and receiving in the same season. So he is absolutely in elite player and I think that that's something that you can tell even without proof season games or seeing him against another opponent in. I'm sure with the panthers where they're concerned were their mindsets up he somebody they don't WanNa see in a preseason game at all. Yeah Yeah. If it wasn't normal preseason, he's one of those guys like it. When I covered the rams with Tagro, you don't need to see those guys in a preseason game because you're doing really an effective. Impossible injury, right. So this season new quarterback behind the helm you got Teddy Bridgewater in where Cam Newton had so many years played what's it like so far watching Teddy Bridgewater Command this offense. It's interesting because I think the biggest thing that every talks about with bridgewater's in his leadership and they say that he is such a good research had good presence in that locker room and I don't think when they say that taking a dig at Cam Newton at all, that's not the the sense that I get. I think it's just the way that voters personality is in the way that he's able to Mesh with guys. It just works and so begun bridgewater is that he was very familiar with offensive coordinator job Reagan Joe Brady from what he? Did lsu basically crafting one of the best offenses did not best offense in colorful history L. National Championship last year, but bridgewater in Brady work together with enrolling saints. So win bridgewater would straight into the same at the end about preseason in twenty eighteen Joe. Brody was offense assistant was his job to get bridgewater up to see him become the backup. So they had that connection they shared our already in because of that bridgewater I think was pretty for a lot farther ahead he would have been had he just sitting random quarterback that signed free agency. And I don't know how much effect that's going to have on the season especially since there were, you know there wasn't a season Had meetings they there was really not a real drain Kathy didn't get a practicing team they didn't do anything in a preseason game. So it remains to be seen how big back I will have but I think it certainly doesn't hurt well as the raiders are coming into town. What is the feeling like right now for this team ahead of that match up, I? Mean these are two teams I feel like they're really have to prove themselves in week one to show what kind of changes they made especially with the Panzer Panthers having a new head coach Matt rule so what do you think right now the the mindset is for the team as the raiders gear up for week one. Think be seems should probably be excited to play. And see no color all off season long it's been so long since these guys were able to play against an opponent but I think when it comes to the panthers specifically, they want to show that they are better than people might think. About this team with a new head coach. Really not good in Iran defense last year gator five point yards per carry, and that's definitely something that's going to be on the mind of guys like Jon Gruden Greg Olsen. They're gonNA pound the rock with Josh Jake the something the panthers no was well Matt. We'll talk about earlier this week how it's going to be a good opportunity for the panthers to prove that they actually are improved on what on run defense against somebody like Josh Jacobs. So I think they're ready to get going there cited to get going, but they also know that they got lots proven. It's got Ta just based on the fact that again, you haven't you coach that didn't happen often program you didn't play any preseason games there's potential for something you'll all messy and. Like, that term when you look at the raiders and what they've done with the titans. Okay you know Foster Moreau's now healthy they brought in Jason in the off season. You Have Darren Waller there, and like you mentioned the panthers defense wasn't necessarily that strong at the core of it when you look at the center of the defense, the linebacker. So how do you think these guys that they have now are prepared to not just handle the run but these short yard type situations that you might expect to see and to in three tight end sets against the raiders. Kidding Journey, Chin drafted him on the second round trip backup to get in, and he's going to be I think a real important piece when it comes to defending guys who could be matchup up problems. So Belsen wants to equate him to listen. It used a guy like him. All add. Wildcard guys that can play over the field eventually they want. Jerry Chin to be in that mold now obviously, as a rookie, all that has pressure on starting from day one but that's sort of the the Dayton vision him is had but also. Familiar face on this team talk about. Core that's how you're whitehead. So he's going to be replacing leuke three who was a linebacker the panthers meteors in great at it but I think we saw last year and hey, you walk this law. Sometimes. Razors had problems covering tight ends and you're talking about that that was. and. So I, think in this scene, it could be a little bit different. These also see messer deepens with the panthers it's different than what? It might be little bit a better fit for failure while at and he's also coming into this year as the middle linebacker knowing that he's a signal caller and last year that was not the case obviously perfect did not work out for the raiders game suspended for the rest of the year. So you got those guys you've got another guy in chat constant another quality outside linebacker until I think between the three of them, the band's feel like they can defend but again, I think into you actually go out. And do it and get somebody lie dare waller. That's really really talk task and I. I really liked lost in a row to as he was doing things last year as rookie Jason, he's GonNa get you the three yard butthole before yard our button hook that he needs to do now for the last three, hundred years. So I think that there could be Samachar problems but in the panthers is going to have to prove that they can solve. This is so fun talking to you at the other side the panthers. Yeah. Right. Back. Pretty well, this. Isn't talking about I'm like, I don't know. If you do and we're going to keep it going here miles right after we take a quick break here on the takeaway edition of the magazine Guess. You've counted on restaurants.

Maybe bring some joyous and people your for they sit there and watch their favorite teams play. That was raiders quarterback Derek Carr talking about what his expectations are for game. One of the season what it'll feel like to play without fans in the stadium miles and I also talked about what all the changes have been because of covid nineteen and what that has looked like in the NFL landscapes. Let's continue that game preview right now with me and Mile Simmons. All right. We're back here with Miles Simmons working with the panthers. Now he used to be part of dark side in Las Vegas covering the raiders with us here at the Review Journal and also has some experience with the rams. So miles you have definitely had your share of different covered different teams in the past three to five years or so you we've gone. Yeah. So this is my subtleties season covering the NFL. So it's it is three in the past three years at the ranch in eighteen last year with the raiders then and now here with the Panther. So it gets. Kinda. Walk. All right. So let's get back into this matchup week one, the raiders coming into Carolina visiting the panthers and no preseason I mean covid nineteen aspect of things has really loomed the shadow over everything. There's a lot of people in doubt like is the NFL season actually GonNa Happen Are we going to see it go all the way through right. Now, how do you feel the NFL has really handled dealing with this virus and going through the right testing procedures and doing the right things to protect its players how do you feel about what the NFL has done so far? been. Pretty much good. A job jobs at hostile and can. There can me people in the NFL to create an all I think that that's an obvious thing. What they did though was reduced facing your your preseason roster from ninety eight guys back cuts off whatever thirty two times. Ten is three point eight. Players I can do. From. Everybody's Rosser and then so that is a little bit of mitigation mayor and then a also now reduce rostered fitting three, but yet cautioned suit. So they increase practice watts sixteen players in a you get four guys who can be veterans from any point at any point in their career bat something that's get to protect. Six is are you going to protect for week so? What being apple did was create is multiple bowl environment a possibly could. In order to try to get these around remarkably, we're in a place where you're not really seeing many guys go on that Cova Louis. Now, I think part of that had to do with the hours that are involved drinking. There's just not much time for guys to go and do much in potentially get into trouble or potentially expose themselves. But now we're in the regular season. There's more time for guys to be on their own, and so it's GONNA take everybody. To stay on the same path to make sure that there is no big outbreaks somewhere because there could be adding what were alone with virus for six months. which is remarkable me that it it it's been like this. So, you know it's tough I think to get through. But the NFL has done is good Dallas possible to make sure that they have a chance to and you? There's probably no possibility of the NFL can create the bubble because there's so many moving parts and I agree one hundred percent with you on that. But do you think that when it gets narrowed down to play offs? Maybe at least you know divisionals do you think that that would be a consideration? I certainly think that You get to the super. Bowl. Bat But your premiums bald in anyway. But like that, I think you might. I'm totally just settling your. Keen teams go tallied earlier than they would at usually and then basically start quarantining there savane practices and everything that being to do but you know who knows reason be as country in? January in February like their wapping so. Now. And hopefully, the virus will back off a little bit. So you can get our lives back but yeah. I think has the everything's out again, table baseball baseball is now considering going to a bubble format for the playoffs I think we've seen it worked so well with basketball hockey, it has you consideration but to this point, the NFL's goodall possible though I have to agree with you there I mean I've been tested pretty much every day and I must like in shock that I'm able to do this to have that type of resource available to me. So I, mean for the players say I'm sure that they are all thankful for that as well. Let's get back into the match up though here this game we talked a little bit about mount rule, but I wanted to get your take on how he has been as a coach for this team. Especially when you look at the past coach and Ron Rivera who you know has left the team now he's with Washington. So you see matt rule, what are the differences in coaching styles as well as just how they lay out things for their team? What are the differences here between these two? Well, the first day that we will see practice. People. remarked at the energy level being different and the tempo of practicing different and I sort of think about the compared. This comparison between Sean mcvay and Jeff Fisher because that was one of the things that I really noticed when he shot avai came in with the rams in two thousand seventeen practices were UPTEMPO guys standing around you had sometimes to drills going on at the same time everything is higher energy and I think some of that has to do with just he's new right whenever a new echo it comes into place things are going to be a little bit different. But yeah it was noticeable from panthers standpoint that this was a high energy practice that Matt Rule The higher coach and really cares on data's wants to get a guys go quickly part is possibly can. So I think that's probably the biggest difference comes to seem entre law things are going to be different, but there's only so much. You can tell from the guys going against each other in practice but I mean one thing that you. Bat like they don't have Cam Newton anymore. So your quarterback position is different in Cam when candles less healthy in eighteen. All mortal pocket passer and they didn't necessarily know run him as much into the grammar is before. It's run into the ground either term but. I think you have a team like this now? You have to think about what are they going to do to prove themselves to this new regime players wanted to mess always important. I think Lotta guys. In, and it may make a difference in the outcome of the season's. Top because there wasn't awesome program. Now, as we've mentioned before, you've done your time covering the raiders and something I thought about their when you're talking about is the difference in practice I remember seeing it from del Rio to Jon Gruden I mean del Rio was more laid-back kind of atmosphere was like. My Buddy and John gruden's all about business. So it was completely different night and day between those two as well. But when we look at the raiders, I, think a lot of people last year expected much more out of the offense especially when in the off season yet, Antonio Brown there then tyrone Williams was left to forge the load and couldn't quite get the way that they wanted to in on paper. I think when they looked at how the things we're going to line-up originally. So what actually transpired? So now when you see a guy like Henry rugs on the raiders, what do you think about the offense on the dynamics, how they've improved in the off season? Well. First of all, we knew say Antonio Brown you just triggered me and like I wanna get cold sweats. And I think of waking up in Oakland. And having five text messages if not the teen being like Oh miles entering grounded something else. So those are your this time. So yeah, it's a religious got through there. What was the other question? How are the raiders have improved with the wide receivers bringing in rugs and would you? There's a lot of young guys on this team? Yes. There's a lot of youth there and I think that first of all, they needed that receiver position to. Get. A little odd in some way they trying different guys wanted tonio round didn't work out had getting released whether trump Davis that was there for a couple of weeks Zeh Jones I read some stuff that grund sprays eight Jones a little bit over the last few weeks or along it's been. But they needed somebody who can really take top off of defense right and I think that when you have somebody like him, he's versatile also has a lot of that speed and I think the match is going to be interesting between him and cornerbacks at the Pan. Tab is really speedy cornerbacks, women Dante Jackson in rookie by junior he's another really fast guy so the speed. reporters. Jackson probably trying for project guy who ran track before and is done some. Pearls. Got Some. Interesting match fair just in terms of who can keep up with whom and also you got to talk about Derek Carr like is Derek are really going to be able to push the ball down field in. It's something that he did a little bit of last year as I'm watching them for every game, but it wasn't consistent. Now, some of that definitely play call some of it has to do with guys getting open not being open. But. Can that action gives you can have time to do it and came to actually execute it. It's going to be interesting to see what happens I definitely agree, and that's going to be I. think the big key for the raiders this year but somebody I wanNA get your take on before I, let you go miles on the raiders is Cory Littleton. So guy that you saw with the rams now he's with the raiders I think the linebacker position for the raiders definitely needed improvement and I think so far corey little tins a huge upgrade as well. Isn't it could Hausky. So what's your take on Littleton? Well RS Littleton for long time the way he needed impression on me and I think everybody in La was on special teams because there was a time version sixteen started on special teams been seventeen is when Hugh really going I think he blocked or at least -flective three or four months that year it was like every time averaging her. Arch Blah Blah like. How can you? Have, your own social team for near you have. Jobs of course we but you're one job on team has to be identified that guy in stopped him from getting into the backfield and ruining your day and so many needed were not able to do that and so. Little can I think is the least subtlety player who made himself into a very good linebacker he's good in coverage and you can come in play there too. But I think he's he's excellent at being curve, which is love it because he started out as defensive in Washington. So you know dropping back was not necessarily his game being passed. Interceptions look the rams and gas is definitely somebody that being needed at that through outside linebackers spa the four three defense that up runs up there. So you have a guy that can run sideline to sideline. He can cover guys can come up and play the Ronchi can blitz very well, and I'm not so pointing special teams up there, but he's somebody that can also come and block or you too. So very valuable guy. At the linebacker spots were. Excellent. Stuff miles I'm so glad that we had this opportunity to talk today I. Hope we get to talk more after the game I could talk literally to for like an hour just about how this game just one game. I think I could talk to you for an hour but I know we're busy you got things to do and I so much appreciate the time today miles. I. Truly do missing and I know he's out there listening.

Raiders 27-24 loss to the Texans

"We're full stories of to Las Vegas officers who responded to the scene of the one October shooting on the Las Vegas Strip you can find wherever you are listening to the podcast right now just search hey vegas nation listeners I wanNA take thirty seconds to introduce you to a new podcast from the Review Journal called critical condition accounts from one October it's a five part series sharing the power he's so much for listening Asia presented by ESPN sports mobile from station casinos how the team performed in the stretch and where do you see them as regrouping after this last year to the Texans well first of all thanks for having me I'm sitting in for Adam everything happening here with the raiders it's Heidi Fang with Ed Grainy and Miles Simmons and we are all here at the Energy Stadium in Houston where the Texans the at Jon Gruden admitted that he is concerned about Rodney Hudson but I think you gotta give credit to Andrei James WHO's an undrafted rookie center out of Ucla really he wasn't when the Texans really took over the game and then The raiders were struggling to come back there in the fourth they lost Rodney Hudson but the Texans also had a big loss. Jj Watt you just walked away with a win over the raiders twenty seven to twenty four and in this one guys I mean it was pretty competitive up until I think the third quarter we'll have to see how this goes on for the raiders for not just this week for but for the next few weeks and it's been a long road trip here for the raiders and for them not to walk away but let's get into the Raiders First Rodney Hudson or center here that's been all pro for the raiders a huge loss to the team Andre James came in though and he held his able to play as it was supposed to be until today when that only happened for about like what nine minutes and so then after that now they're going to have to adjust again the center until he got to the raiders so that before that he was playing offensive tackle so I think right now what you're seeing is this raiders offensive line that has not been episode of the biggest nation podcast brought to you by SDN SPORTS MOBILE STATION CASINOS OVER GET CHECK OUT BIGGEST NATION DOT COM and get the biggest Asian App to follow he also I'm GonNa go hi meter on the artistic dry sense of humor I'll try not go political you know look obviously this was a huge with the win here it means that they went to and three on the road in this five game road trip will they section of the London game actually being on the road but not technically road trip but still slang games against teams that before before today started were eighteen thirty five and one of only one Kansas City had a winning record that doesn't mean they're going to walk through victories not in this league because they do have obviously and after the game with how this thing can maybe end up with Rodney Hudson is an ankle injury so he left the game midway through the first quarter and did not return fumble but it wasn't it didn't really help them in terms of winning the game so how do the raiders go back to the drawing board and on defense own but miles what kind of a blow is this to the team well I think it depends on how long he's out you know it seemed like Jon Gruden was concerned because look Rodney Hudson does not come back into the game with how good he is as a player without a steady he has been as a contributor at center that must mean it's pretty serious so made were you in London or not right like that's on the road I I know it's technical whatever but like one is worse than going to Houston right so what do you make think Jon Gruden had a little call back I'm not sure if he remembered the callback to what Dabo Swinney said about comparing to Shawn Watson Michael Jordan but then Jon Gruden had another sound we'll try like I said to bring the right kind of people in here we think that can bill championship football team fans in the world and I know it hurts that we might not be also you're not going to get the unscheduled plays like Shawn Watson was making today to convert their downs to get into touchdowns situation so if the raiders can continue to get then he is of the elite quarterbacks in the league like you're Aaron Rodgers of the world you're Shawn Watson world so not playing quarterback of that caliber yes is going to help you because that play was absolutely stunning and then you find out after the game that he couldn't even see when he left the ball go that's ridiculous most quarterbacks are not going to be able to really be good for them is that they're not going to be playing Shawn Watson right I mean that guy is so special he left Jon Gruden shaking his head on after today's game and no they go home and they've got to win games though I mean you know the they they have got to prove they can stop good quarterbacks haven't really done that yet this season and teams they just lost a game today that they can't afford so we'll see but this is a huge opportunity lost in my opinion so miles the raiders actually got some pressure here on the quarterback they a to Deshaun Watson three times a sanctum for losses a total twenty one yards spit even though they were able to create that pass rush and I believe Max Cross before sure on the quarterback it's going to be good for them probably in other situations where they're not playing somebody like this this episode of Vegas nationwide be right back. Sdn sports the only sports betting APP you need this season sign up today and get a new sign up bonus up to fifty dollars sanity loss amounts might talked about it after the game three and two on the trip would have been much better than two and three they have the benefit of going home now for three straight four of six and they're they're they're station but this was a big one letting you guys know that if you look at the Texans you look at the raiders are kind of similar teams and similar teams sometimes end up going for wildcards and if it's head to head on officiency defensively especially since good quarterbacks we seem so I think they would have rather obviously I know that much would have rather gone home the win but it's big but Bite of sent you know you look at the Sean Excuse me Michael Jordan and all these elite athletes and what they do and it's the same sort of thing with the Shawn Watson he makes incredible player it was interesting after the game where you had Derek Carr admitting the fact that he kind of forgot sometimes that tyrod Williams was on the field and he yes oh he's a veteran Max crosby who is a rookie had a couple of bad penalties a roughing the passer is a face mask where he he had another one that was not good and he makes plays make you sit back in your chair and just make your mouth drop open this especially that last touchdown he had to Darren vowels the biggest thing that the raiders were able to do in the third quarter when they only had one possession was they were able to attack with tyrod Williams get down the field and score so no he didn't quite say oh I forgot but he said look we we were looking at the pictures and I went to Trevor Davis one time and then you look at the other side and you're saying Oh yeah tyrel Williams you can't look you can't come on the road against a pretty good team and a great quarterback and have eleven penalties for one hundred and say well we should have won the game no you can't do that the team because they are young will richie incognito young ninety clarinet a huge hold on their last drive took him out of Field Goal Range Daniel Cross not potentially tied the game enforced overtimes Rados forever but we are still waiting action I think it's going to be a get an army coming into Las Vegas Gene Young team where do they go how do they get this team to get rid of these penalties or is that just going to happen as they kinda grow as the penalties did kill them there were a couple of those on defense a couple of them with Max crosby if I remember right he had a roughing passer call I think twice so I don't think that's a really good reason or excuse when at the end of the day you've got to make something happen and you know what they did score points on to I thought it was a drop it was in his hands so you know I don't think they went after them the way they should have I know Josh j possession running back and you want him running the ball but when you have a secondary beat up like that house right now rounding hunches is a big man and big man on ankles that could be a while now putting you're putting your weight and trying to do what he has to center so we don't know how long they do get terribly Tara Williams back trim brownback the gut guys back but now you're losing guys so they need to go beat they need to be Detroit next son they're going to stay in this playoff kind of talk or combat now being a would you see him being able to go the full length of the season and taking more reps I mean what do they do with him right now as they head into the to do that I mean playing Patrick mahomes presumably again but next week you got Matthew Stafford who I would say is more on the level of a kirk cousins on Tuesday or you have to be able to do a little bit more in order to win and right now I think the raiders are just having a lot of trouble getting to three points they we said this to each other earlier it's just like the shoulders hurting here this is hurting you can go then you know you go tape them up shoot them up and you go that's like that's the reality of the NFL I mean it's it's really you know it's people hate to hear that but that's of those three possessions that they had in the second half but when you get it you get a field goal instead of a touchdown and you're all the way down to their twenty four twenty five all these kill them I didn't think I'd like to see what miles ing I didn't think they were aggressive enough and I know they look the only up three second-half possessions I get that in fact the Houston had the undershirt and you're still runs out of it that's the kind of thing that you can see Josh Jacobs doing despite the fact that okay he didn't practice all week oh well you know he can so come out on the field on the third quarter for over twelve minutes which is almost I mean it's not almost as completely ridiculous but I'd like sue mouth things I didn't think they attacked a secondary riddled with injuries in Houston uh he plays and you say this this is what it's about you didn't practice all week but I thought he was still pretty effective in this game fifteen carries sixty six yards of course twenty three of those whether they need to do to be able to turn those sacks and turn those types of fumbles into points for the team the first thing that kind of what these guys do to get ready to play on Sunday so for a kid who didn't have a heavy load in college he's learning what it's like to be in the NFL now and this is what on an NFL players who have to take the week to get their body back in les we say because it's a cliche but you know these are car crashes these guys go through every snap this is not an yards came on one Kerry but I think you just look at the way he can still power through arm tackles I think it was the first or second play somebody's got him from behind you're on the field too and he said you have to adjust because Williams hadn't been there for the last two games he missed a bunch of practice time so because of that you know you're you're adjusting to different things but I don't if the raiders are playing opponent that can score thirty or more they're gonNA have a tough time winning just based on the way they're playing offense right we talked about easy game to play so when you do that to your body you need recovery time and maybe he just becomes one of these manageable guys where it doesn't do much during weaken you put him out there on Sunday that he did not reinforced with the white left you started laughing what's wrong with that dry sense of humor trump sorry that was the atom hills dress and then when they are trying to attack there in the end Tara Williams has a flat drop and espn gave it a defendant pass on the one on the very last plan there is for the last five yard line that's significant and so you have to be able to I think as you're saying attack that riddled secondary that Israel with injuries somebody these there that you know just got there much load before how do you handle it and I think he's either already gone over the most amount of touches that he ever had at Alabama with one hundred twenty or he what do we hear about Josh Drake who's out of Alabama very low usage in terms of Alabama backs this kid has not been used to the kind of pounding he's now taking but you put them in the war Brid touches at the end of this season so there's a lot of that is going to go into it but I think as of right now you still feel good about where Joshua have that many carries though at Alabama I think on the one hand it's okay how does he manage that from the standpoint of okay you you've never done this before you never carry this continue to okay so the last thing the main discussion I think a lot of discussion before this game started was cart needed to stretch the field to be able to you know rest and do whatever you have to do during the week but on Sundays you better perform and I think that he was able to do that today for the good enough he was fine you know in the NBA they called will next week at England there's nine games last exit I mean something like two hundred fifteen carries at Alabama he will have maybe three be Josh Jacobs becomes one for the rest of the year miles up there for practice he's not practicing all week but you know he's GonNa play and and he's he goes dozen again that's no different than a ton I pull you probably don't practice a motown during the week you restaurant it look this is the life of the NFL this is no different than most backs and most position players in the NFL. I mean obviously it's a serious injury but if this you don't WanNa get hurt bad because he's really really good talent they need him but I would think if it just remains hey the shoulders hurt miles a this I'm aching and bruised here in a shootout part of it is their receivers are inexperienced in the scheme let's put it that way you have not had Tiro Williams next game with the Lions do you think that given time to get he'll up I mean what do we do just no you tell the kid this is the NFL I mean he's not going to be hundred percent prime for the rest of the year you gotTa Remember Oh perform and you need that out of a young back so I would almost expect to see the same kind of deal going forward if he doesn't practice fine you you know as you said shoot them up the Texans now while he did have sixty five hundred one hundred renfro wasn't necessarily past the window tyrel Williams was but I mean is countless Gurion calling uh-huh Jacobs as well He was a little banged up coming into this one he had fifteen carries Didn't hit the hundred yard mark but I mean it. DC HIS HEALTH JJ WATT goes out in the first half I thought they could have done more and again three second-half possessions is not allow me to escort onto you know I tend to agree with you because I think good job by the Houston defense obviously but if you want this offense to be productive Josh Jacobs has to be good because he's the best player on their offense Durham Waller is the best one also saying miles will be all over this further review journal look at the trade deadline I think they're going to be buyers I'm just GonNa throw a name would he do Josh Gordon's out there that the he stole a couple of catches today so it's hard right now I think for this team to really have somebody consistent on the outside now the other thing you're going to have to think about is going through these next few weeks who are they going to see a quarterback in different positions on the outside Gereously is one of the best quarterbacks in the league that's going to be facing next week they they might or the entirety of the season and again their car had to adjust in being back in the lineup today okay that's fine your other players that you're Kinda counting on right now are do he's stretching the field a little bit here but I think maybe there needs to be a little bit more on the deep threat in the deep attack for them to be able to win games like this enough I mean this I don't even know who's in the second or anymore for Houston they Detroit for Gary on Conley this we just have a they were aggressive enough in the Torna Renfro who's who's still rookie Trevor Davis just got to the raiders at the end of September they Jones just got to the raiders couple of weeks ago they're not named Josh Jacobs and you have to have those two guys going in the supplement that with threats from the outside so I think this game's more on the defense than it is the offense simply because well but other than Tara Williams like miles said it's hard to stretch this field right now and if someone's there and the apples there in the temptations there and you really think he's going to be outright released that happens I think that I I'm not saying they should I'm just saying knowing may congruent what they've done to this point would it shock any of us if they if they inquire it's GonNa Release this guy and he has issues and we know that they've taken guys on with issues before I think they will look for wide receivers out there I think the look at linebackers and defensive players management let's say Leonard you sit out a game load management in the NFL is you don't practice and there you gotta show up for the walk through and you're questionable questionable questionable we're talking about Blake Martinez there's often say the best ability is availability so why a go and get a Josh Gordon who doesn't your offense in is going to have to learn it when you've already Adam together that equals Josh Gordon and it might be a little bit more than Josh Gordon because those two guys have availability and you know that they're going to be available and the as indy maybe for wildcard spot you beat the colts I mean a lot of stuff has to happen but you have to look at these kind of things and I think at this point when you walk out airfare rates go go texans go into divisions so with car where did you see his output today miles and and how he was able to come together for this game I think it's really really hard right now for the raiders to win was covering him so what did we think of coverage of cars effectiveness I mean they could knock it off the field in the second half but at the same time yes you want wore out of that offense because they can't get to thirty points quite yet and that's a problem well think people are saying you know I I I still think the chargers are sneaky kind of good if they just don't charger themselves out of it but I think the raiders at the deadline will say we're buyers because I think they will believe thank with that back end schedule The you can get a wildcard spot I will not be shocked at these guys do something was someone like Josh Gordon I I don't know that's happening I'm just saying you know from all reports out of these I think they're buyers at the deadline the only thing I would say about Josh Gordon is that you've already acquired too wide receivers and Trevor Davis Jones and I think Trevor Davis in Zeh Jones vials right before the the the Green Bay linebacker that guy's been deck has been questionable as entire green y'all go on every Sunday and like have ten tackles for loss I mean it's crazy so there's guys like that rush I think they believe look I I think they think they're going to take a shot at the playoffs I haven't seen a Kansas City update I still think that the best team the AFC west the chargers got very fortunate to win today I still air about him I mean they need a guy who can stretch the field and I just think you know I mean there's NBA the receivers out there I don't know if there's as many as talented as he is because I don't know at worst in their minds of a shot at the wild card which by the way now means if you're a raider fan out there go Houston Texans because you want to Houston Texas winning the AFC South and then your dad within got two guys who were sort of in that same situation but also proven that they can be effective in your scheme so I think that I would think they would look more at defensive help that kind of happened was he did not get much out of their tight ends you look at Darren Waller's production even as the day with two catches for eleven yards eight targets that's not something that we've seen all year so if we're not looking at the scenarios say what this was a big missed opportunity because you've got to play all these teams in the AFC south and I said this on video you always look at the graphics that they've got in December where it says in the hunt and all those freaking AFC south teams are always there because Tennessee's always gonNA win some games that they should and they're gonNA lose some games that they shouldn't I don't know why they're always like this but you can go back to two thousand and seven with Jeff Fisher and they're still like that right so Jeff Fisher really really big or Derek Carr veteran guys going this was a missed opportunity I think everyone was in that locker room understood we let this slip away this was back in Oakland Sunday the third you had lions and then the chargers of the bengals than they had back out on the road

And it's been fun for me to watch the evolution of both the draft picks in college free free agents. And what you're trying to do in the with free agency. I think from a draft pick perspective. It's kind of been fun again for your three for me to kind of look back at nineteen and see who's become leaders on this team you know and see some of those guys like even on the third day of the two thousand nineteen draft guys like max crosby Foster moreau hunter renfro offering them our leaders now along with cle- along with Josh john's been really good. Trayvon's had asthma so that that class is kind of growing up and for me. that's fun. see a mere three. The ronin amend now last year's group states took a little bit of step up. I think this year camp with two first round picks Rugs came in a little bit. Different guy You can feel his speed more than last year. I've liked the way he's approached this camp. And i think casey hayward's been really steadying influence on him. Brian edwards everybody's excited about john simpson's playing his tail off. And i think one of the cool stories of this camp is a meek emeka. Looks like the guy we saw back two years ago in college both inside and outside And then this year's group jimmy. Marcy goes to practice squad but everybody else's on team and there's been some pretty good stories there from top to bottom so That's a long way to say that It's like a jigsaw puzzle. It's kind of cool to see. Some of these guys grow up with fun. Watching this year's draft picks. I think they kind of are who we hope they would be.

Darren waller raiders. tight end. you're going to hear from him after he partnered his foundation with landmark recovery. About what that meant to him his program and also the lives that he changed with his grants that he issued from the foundation. But first let's i hear from miles simmons. We're gonna talk right now. all about. What's going on with the raiders and their roster. It's my good friend former colleague. He's now a pro football talk. It's miles hey simmons i just want to say that because when you put the middle initial in there it lets people know how important he is. And how serious were taken this podcast today with miles on the show. He's gonna join me here right now. Talk about all the fifty three men that the Sir has on it for the raiders. And maybe even some surprises. We heard from general manager bike mayo. We're going to get into that as well but first miles. Our you doing on doing great. Heidi anytime i get to talk to you and talk football with you. It's a good day. I agree my friend because it's just like old times swapping baggers for those of you don't know miles is with us on this raiders. Beat we have many crazy Experiences i think last time we talked about being in the cold and denver walking through blizzards and stuff true. Yes that did happen. it's crazy. no how do like we started working together almost two years ago. It's just over two years ago. We started working together. It doesn't feel like it's been that long or that short. I don't know it just doesn't feel like it's been that time that's true. Says speaks to the core of our friendship and now bonded miles. It's very true. I love that you're doing what you are now. And that's why i wanted to bring you on because you really see it. All you do it all over their pro football talk now and with your astute analysis. I'd i liked to get your thoughts on mike. Mayock saying that the fifty three man roster is a fluid thing coming right off the bat with the cuts. Yeah you know. I think that is really fluid especially this year where. There's so much more time between where they pick that roster and then when the first game is because now you don't have the fourth preseason game and i think we all went through last year and it was strange and odd and awkward probably to not have any preseason games at all and some of us thought that that was great. I mean but i think for rosser construction. You don't really have a real training camp and then you don't have the preseason games to evaluate guys with it makes things a lot different but now there's just more time to churn through guys on the back end of that roster in order to make sure that your depth is exactly where you want it to be heading into week one and so i think there there's going to be a lot of moves going on and i think you know across the league. You saw that today. A bunch of different guys were claimed that a bunch of different places for the raiders. But i think that's going to continue to happen As teams see guys in practice that they haven't necessarily had or you've got a lot fewer guys and then you think well we can do a little bit better there and you've got another scout and you're you're probably maybe it's even a college scout that says hey and like there's somebody that's on that practice squad that probably would be better at exposition at wives ish sie position so because of that. There's going to be all i think. a lot. of guys churning through different back ends of different rousers over the course of the next week. Week and a half with the raiders predicament. Being right now that they're linebacker core is kinda depleted and you seen anybody on like cuts or fallen out into the universe that you'd think the raiders could benefit from having so it's not even the guy that was cut i think k j right is still saying that. The raiders have to have in consideration right and it's because he knows the system. It's the same sort of thing as denzel perryman. Who may or may not be a little bit. Cheaper for the raiders. And that's why they went out and got him in. Obviously perriman was with gus bradley in the most of that defensive staff more recently with the chargers But i just think that if if you really want depth and you've now got guys at your defensive line spot with gerald mccoy really good defensively right veteran guy can come in and help teach these guys. Bring these guys up. Casey hayward has done that in the back end by all accounts for guys like damon are neff all. He's been really really good. And we keep hearing that from raiders coaches and different ridge players too. I think if you get somebody like k j right who's been so successful in the league in that linebackers group. It's gonna only make them better and that's not to say that cory littleton. Nick wykowski those guys. They're bad you know. I don't necessarily think that they are bad. If they're in the right scheme where the and the right scheme last year probably not clearly not. I guess we could say since got fired right and saying they've replaced them so there i think. Ways that the raiders defense can get better and that's probably one of them. But i think at the same time it's like you wanna see what ends up and can do. Is he enough for that position group. I don't know but like that's the one guy that i would have to say. You know i would. If i'm raiders fan or if. I'm the raiders brass. I'm still monitoring that because i think he can still help a team and in this new group you talked about it there gus bradley. We know about the cover three. We know about like what he did with guys like kam chancellor and how he made this a legion of boom. And your take because a lot of people have been saying this on. Jonathan abram can do in the box versus how they were utilizing him last year and wanted to get your take on how effective you think he might be in that position. Well you know one thing that stuck out to me. And i went to the raiders and rams practice out here in southern california last two weeks ago now. I guess it was. And i could tell that. The raiders knew more what they were trying to do and trying to accomplish. And i was struck by the fact that the pass rush started looking like they were getting home a little bit. They forced three interceptions off a matthew stafford. And i think one of the things that abram does well is plays in the box and plays in run support. It's something that he's always done really well you know. Sometimes he can be like a heat seeking missile. And so if you have somebody like that. Who can play in the box. It's gonna make your run defense better and a lot of it too is king. Your d- tackles be guys. Who can take up blockers and allow those linebackers abram. Cou i mean if you think about. It is almost effectively linebacker in some spots that lets them be able to run around and make plays now by that same token you also have to have jonathan abram. Play in a way that's controlled and disciplined. And i think that that's something that he just hasn't done because one of the things that really stood out about that practice was late in the team sessions. Who jonathan abram basically comes over and tries to rip robert woods head off. He hit them in a way that was legal and in a way that stopped practice for a little bit because it was a non. Let me put it this way. It was the kind hit that you shouldn't do in practice right and you shouldn't do whatever because if you do it it's going to be fifteen yards and two minute drill too so you're basically allowing these guys to advance even further. I mean honestly. It's like when ryan fitzpatrick got his head. It off right and you allow those guys to go further down the field and kick a field goal because you're adding fifteen yards to what it is that they're already doing so. You can't play that way and you certainly shouldn't be doing that in practice whether it's against your own team against somebody else's team. It's a little bit disrespectful. So i think that that's always been the thing. With abram kin you play controlled and disciplined and if he can channel all of the things that he does really well into playing an illegal way then yes like that is somebody who's going to look like he's worth the first round pick but if he continues to be undisciplined and just goes around and hits everybody you know you get friendly fire stuff too i. That's not helpful for anybody. I was curious now because you said you were down there with those joint practices. I did not know that all these little scuffles that happened down there roderick teamers name came up in the middle of a lot of them. He made the fifty three man roster. I wasn't quite sure that was going to happen with him. Originally visit. You get any takes on roderick teamer when you were down there and what did you think of him. And kinda the same thing that you just mentioned what abram being able to control himself in situations. Yeah you know. It's interesting too because my impression was like there. Were kind of some that the raiders were doing to just get the rams off their game and author tempo and like in some ways. That's good and others. It's not right because that means that you're getting less work than you want to in practice and so it's was sort of involved in those different kinds of things. But i think he's another guy where you look at the safety position and it's interesting because you just look at them and you think all right this is somebody where you can see him growing and you can see how he could grow and be effective in the defense and so i think that you know when you see him the preseason games and you see him fly around and run around and different things like that it makes it encouraging and safety is one of those positions. That's almost like running back on the offense where if you latch on and you can learn then you can grow a lot easier than in other positions. Where like defensive end. You know like you know usually who's going to be a very good defensive in right away but safety is one of those positions where covering the league. As long as i have just noticed that guys can come in. They can play special teams as safeties. And then you're down the road especially as undrafted free agents as they can then step in and be effective in the back end and so. I think that that's something that team could potentially do. Not not saying you know what i think that. He's one of those guys where eventually you can see him stepping up and making plays all right people who need to step up and make plays with this team miles and you know this because it was part of what needed to step up when you are here. We're here the defensive. Line the raiders. Done enough here with the guys that they've brought in jail mccoy. Solomon thomas unique and gakugei quinton jefferson. Are these guys going to be able to push the pressure when they need it. And are the guys. Like max crosby and unique and gawk way they going to be able to team up and really start getting some pressure on the quarterback here. Well i was struck by what mike mayock said in his press conference which was basically that the defense one hasn't done anything yet and they really need to step out and prove it and you know basically i believe he said like. Ask me in two three weeks. Yeah i think about this defensive line because at this point a lot of those guys have done certain things on an individual level. We've seen in goch way. i think. Effectively rush the passer for two different teams at ineffective level. We've seen max crosby since he was a rookie. Be the raiders. Best pass rusher okay. And there's no way to dispute that even if you wanna say nice things about clean for what you could. I mean he's done some different things on the inside. But look you got your fourth round pick. That's been better at the things you expect. A number four overall pick to do and you know we can say whatever we want. but when you're fourth round pick in his third year is on the starting line and your number four overall pick is the rotational guy. That's not an ideal situation. Okay so i just feel like in way has been a probably really good addition. I was struck by how effective he looked against andrew whitworth in those joint practices. I thought he was doing a nice job. He was being disruptive in the backfield but at the same time. Like that's a practice right. It's not like they were scheming for those guys up front. You know you're trying to run your stuff and you know what's coming and it's kind of like just okay. Well what are we going to do if this comes up. And how do we perform so. I think that once we see this team against a team like baltimore right. We're they're going to run the absolute bejesus out of the football. We know that. How are they going to be able to try to set up third long so that lamar jackson has to pass. Because if you can't stop the run against the baltimore team and we know how effective they are wanting football like that's just their mo and they've tried to get better passing the ball. They went out. They got sammy. Watkins draft sean bateman. He's going to be out for a little bit after undergoing groin surgery. But they're still going to run the hell out of the football like that's just who they are if you can't stop that then it doesn't really matter what you try to do to rush the passer because it's going to be third and two and third one the whole time and they're going to get they're going to get a first down anyway so i'm interested to see how they do against baltimore. And then how that affects what they do down the road because it you want to say that this defense looks lot better. I mean it did look a lot better in the joint practice that i saw but until they actually go out and prove it. You really don't know. And i think that this unit does have a lot to prove being lots prove. We know by henry rags brian edwards. That crew were there the flip side of the ball. Wide receivers What did you make the john brown situation with him asking to be released. Even though i think part of it came from the fact that he was playing in the third preseason game and going like am. I going to be like a depth piece. Like you know. What do you think was behind all of this. Well you can say that he asked to be released but in some ways like it's almost like a guy that's about to get fired then he says no i resign you know. It's almost like a little bit saving face because we're they going keep him anyway. I just don't know. I mean you've got guys like you said henry rugs. Is there bryan edwards. Renfro is there. You've got zeh jones. Who apparently had a really really nice training camp and they've said a lot of good things about him. Both mayock and jon gruden and willie steep those are five receivers that i conceive at least rotating in on the field and maybe john brown would have been six guy but when you have somebody like snead who mac was talking about today and you know he can play all of the positions at wide receiver. John brown do that for you. Maybe you're not necessarily going to want them to so i think that in some ways. Yeah it's like your agent gets that out there and you're saving face a little bit by saying you know. I think i would like to go elsewhere when they might have tried to sin yell. Swear anyway miles. Thank you so much for joining me today. Appreciate all of this insight. I think we have to get together regularly. I would say just to keep doing this.

I wanna break this down for you. i before. I started rolling Darren waller and his foundation partnered with landmark recovery. In las vegas and gave out three grants to young adults who were suffering from addiction and needed to find a way to get rehab but couldn't quite afford what they needed to be able to get themselves into a program that could really help get them started on a path to recovery so darren waller's foundation created these grants and they interviewed a bunch of people for them and three people were chosen to receive these grants. At the event darren waller was able to meet with the three of them. Their names are heather gregory and desmond and what a moment that was i was inside the room and it was just so powerful especially when they all told their stories desmond basically had said that he would have been dead in three weeks without this program without this grant that he was emaciated that he was on basically every drug imaginable. Anything that he could get his hands on. He was doing. But the grants that darren waller's foundation was able to award them with changes life and hopefully he can stay on the path to recovery. But but here's darren waller talking about that event and also his own sobriety. What does that first of all for you to start up this partnership with this foundation. Yes it means a lot to be able to partner with landmark seen and heard great things they're doing for the lives of these people people that need help. You need guidance at her. That are desperate. Nick come here and you know really turn their lives around so to be able to link with him able to allow people to come here and continue to feel and experience at. Transformation is is amazing. Hey we got to hear some of those stories people that you've literally saved their lives. What did it account about impact. You hearing their stories and knowing how you helped them. I mean i was just amazing And they come in here and you think that you know they may not want anything but there they were just like oozing joy and no oozing just excitement about their journey that they're on now how grateful they are to be on it and to to see their experiences here where they came from here where you know just the the joy that they had to come here and to just go to work on themselves look at themselves honestly into they need to do to change. Its my days may i. My car can go out on. The highway could be the day that my day that my talk about like those moments that when people realize kate you know i need to get help. What was that moment for. you Yeah it was for me overdose. I come home and underside man. Like i don't know what i'm doing. You know i had this thing on my where thousand control. I had everything in libraries. I realized i didn't like what do i do from here. And i was able to go to treatment myself and it was like you know i take serious time because i went to a couple of outpatient programs and you know i was really good at manipulating. Just kind of you know giving you the run around and you know. I've just told they wanted to hear so really loud. It's work in my life. And so i went into my thirty day. Stay allowing it to really work in. You know it's laid the foundation of what people may see nowadays today on tv or the good things. I'm doing now. It all came from me that desperate time of like they said surrendering to the process in allowing to really work. You mean clean me out and allow me to present myself as who earlier. You're really laying roots here in las vegas like just being able to do this and you have the kids football camp not too far back three. What is meant to really get involved in the community this way It means everything you know the best the best real feeling i've been chasing all along you know whether it's drugs or anything like that it's like don't want to be able to feel good or you know or feel better about myself but i get that through doing what i can to help my else. You know have a better experience or improve their life anywhere they can. Mad gives me that feeling of you know like me being proud of myself in you just you just feel good about the ligon lose. I contribute something. So know doing these things really. I know it does laugh or the people that does so much for me as well. It's really like the field that keeps me going and that clarity easing to have now like when you look back now to the beginning of your nfl career to where you've come with the raiders. Not just you know the yards numbers things like that. But i'm talking about like the clarity when you look back on the beginning of it. What was that like compared to now. yeah it was complete different You know very isolated I didn't really have any relationship with my teammates. Those things cherish most now relations with my coaches Just enjoying the day in day out process. You know the things that are the hard work of it the preparation. I've been enjoying those things before. Religious wanted the results are really just wanted it. Easy the path of least resistance. But now no i value the work that goes into everything and then that makes you appreciate things more when they do happen in the results. Having like you do want to but Isn't the nowadays more like being connected with people around me. My teammates coaches The fans know being distilled that connection knowing that knows not something that is for me is not a single person game as a teen game to team atmosphere. When you immerse yourself in that that's when you really feel the joy of it and just enjoy it all pointed to had to when you're speaking with the people that received the grant here was that i missed it when you today. Okay richard gere. How many of these are actually like reminders. To you of experiences they even your tattoos Yeah most of them are are reminded to a whole bunch of them but this just for today. One is a common phrase used in No treatment area recovery meetings things of that nature. But it's just like you know we can get so anxious and think that we have to figure our lives out So new years down the road or this detailed plan for relaxing. Look like when really. It's i know you just have what we handled today. You can keep us out of that anxiety you can keep that shame from the past and allow us to you know. Every moment that comes in our life that wants to come in the future is is the present moment is today tomorrow is gonna be a today at some point so if i handled today tomorrow is going to be that much better four years. Let's that milestone like for you knowing that you've four years sober now Just looking back. It's like it feels like it's been forever but at the same time feels like it. It flew by Just a very surreal feeling just knowing that me trying to negotiate with myself like am. I thinking that they can stop. But i wish i was going to say no. Stop tomorrow on the weekend. Stop another time. So it's like. I can never really stop. And it was like four. Like legit four days seemed like it wasn't going to happen but to have for years. It's just really looking at it as individual days. That are stacked up and now i can look back and be like oh alec. Some good things are happening is because i just handled it just for today. It'll carry that like theory like every day when you go. Maybe like two to treatment not treatment. Excuse me but to i- counseling or to get help and speak with people meetings things like that. That still the mentality. Every everything that i do every day when i write in my journal or go to therapy or go to a meeting or a have an honest conversation with somebody yes. That's me investing in myself as me. Investing in this new life not continuing to build and knowing that it takes that where he takes those daily investments in order to keep it what it is to stop i stop. Investing in. it'll deteriorate like a account will like business would like know best. What will be my life. So i try to make sure that employment in every single day like i told him not remembering why. I'm doing this. Not remembering that desperate feeling like i have to channel at every single day in what i do and then you know. It's going to be so much easier for me to motivate myself to do what i need to do.

Fantasy Football - Week 3 (Part 2)

"It's time to eat four. Sit down and get ready to consume an abundance of fantasy football knowledge from ross. Tucker and joe dolan now on the fantasy feast and podcast. Yeah let's eat maybe it is the fantasy feast eating podcast presented by draftkings. This show that so nice. We do it twice. I'm ross tucker. He's joe dolan. You should follow him on social media at f. g. underscore going definitely check me out. Please at ross tucker. Nfl we greatly appreciate those of you. That spread the word by social media with the tweets. We love love. Re we live quote tweets where you say best fantasies podcast out here. Joe dolan's whatever it is. I don't really care just quote tweet. With how great we are and i or joe or both or at ross tucker pod will vary likely re tweet you. I'm at ross tucker. Nfl we always do during the season two episodes to break it up a little bit. The first one is thursday night and then all of the sunday one o'clock games. The second one's the sunday late games. Sunday night monday night that way. We mentioned every fantasy relevant skill player in every game between the two shows. We'll start this show. Joe who by the way is the started. Fancy points dot com use code. Twenty-one feast with the owen to jets at the to broncos. Is there anybody on the jets. We should even mention for one second. Joe i mean here. Here's one guy michael carter. His snap share was up from twenty five percent in week. One to forty five percent week to eleven carries fifty nine yards two for twenty nine receiving so there is something there. I'm just waiting to play him until until until better days or head. Ross i mean we have so much to talk about each and every week. I don't know why we'd waste our time on the jets right now. they're offensive. Line is a disaster. Wilson is is seeing things. I'm not writing off by any stretch of the imagination. But that was an yes it was. There's no question. What about on the other side teddy deep ball and the denver broncos it looks really good. He's been the quarterback eleven. So far this season i mean pretty damn good performance by teddy and it was great to see cortlandt sutton out there. Then go into sutton enact game you know kind of a not greasing the squeaky wheel but more just get his feet under him you know. He only caught one pass in week. One and then. Judy went out and they needed them in week two. So let's look at denver backfield by the way. Because i think that's something that a lot of people are are interested in through two games. Melvin gordon devante williams. Melvin gordon seventy. Four snaps devante williams. Sixty one melvin gordon. Twenty nine touches devante williams twenty-nine touches inside the five yard line. Svante williams three snaps. Melvin gordon one snap. Can i deduce anything from this number. One it's an even split right now number. Two i think. Melvin gordon's the passing down guy. I think devante williams is the early down short yardage goal line guy. Personally to my is. Outside of melvin gordon. Seventy yard run in week one. Which does cal devante. Williams has looked like the better runner. I think it's only a matter of time before devante williams takes this gig but's it's still have to play the long game. Melvin gordon's not. Going away devante. Williams is going to have to have one of those monster games to pull away or there's going to have to be an injury but right now. I think you have to consider that. This isn't even split and both guys are kind of in. That are be three type of area that said you know the jets did give up a lot on the ground last week against a damian harris so maybe you take a shot at one of those running backs this week next game up. It's the miami dolphins too tongo vilo ruled out this week. Fractured ribs. jacoby brusett starts a guy named reid. senate is backup which is wild retailer. One year at university of san diego. I never heard twenty nineteen. It's pretty amazing. Actually he might be playing against the raiders on sunday but percents starts. They were not good on the offensive line. Really anywhere joe on sunday against the bills. What is there anything to know about the dolphins skill. Guys against the raiders. And you know at the very least. I think percents a capable backup. But he's a type of guy. ross. I think he's the thing about percent is like he's one of those guys. It just seems like everything he does is kind of slow. Yes like if you remember do obviously remember matt liner. Everything matt liner did was like he was a capable guy but like his arm was slow. His drop was slow. Yeah it just everything was just like a way and i feel like that's it with percent because i think if you grow roussette out there and you put them in shorts and you put them against air this guy looks like he's got it all but he's just a beat slow That could be a problem against max crosby. Who's who's been one of the best defensive lineman in the nfl so far behind this battle offensive line. Here's the problem with miami too though. How about garbage rotation in the backfield. I mean you're scrambling for something to work against buffalo but five carries for gaskin five carries for malcolm brown six carries for salve on akhmed gaskin at least gets targets. He had five of them. He's the only guy you consider playing here as a running back. He's a flex type of option at receiver will force back right. That complicates matters. How many targets is he going to get. I mean he's going to be in there for albert wilson who isn't very good But jalen waddell and devante parker. I'd love to save. Both of these guys are strong wide receiver threes but this raider demand You know. I think that the pass rush has been pretty good. I think he did a good job on the steelers last week. That's all you could say. Wide receiver threes for waddell and parker. Until i see how old is integrated This dolphin team ross. Just has some bad vibes about it. And i think it just it reverts back to the fact that i don't think this organization has ever shown like a full commitment to tua and now he's hurt at. I don't have a good vibe. Without the dolphins at all no agreed. I do have a good vibe. Strangely about the raiders. I mean i tweeted yesterday. Joe have joking. At ross tucker. Nfl i always make fun of like that really early season mvp talk. Yeah so like half joking. I was like your mvp front runner. Derek carr it is unbelievable. How much engagement. I got with that tweet. Either people disagreeing with me or agreement mean order saying two games stupid which it is. Yeah but of course. I mean i know. I know how you tweet ross. I can always imagine you smirking when you but derek carr by the way has Has over eight hundred yards passing which leads the nfl. Nobody else has seven hundred so he is. He is lapping the field right. Now in that category now keep in mind. He's dealing with an ankle injury or injury expert edwin porous at fantasy points dot com thinks. It's a high ankle sprain. Quarterbacks can play through those more effectively than other positions can play through those but just keep that in mind as he goes up against miami which can defend. There's no two ways about it miami. Ken defend But henry rugs got behind the bench with pittsburgh last week. Pittsburgh probably wouldn't have given that play up if they had joe haden by me has good corners Josh jacobs out yet again. This team can not run the football. You know kenyan drake just don't think very good runner. I think he's a good receiver. I don't think he's very good runner This team cannot run. The football peyton barber was their lead back at thirty two yards rushing on thirteen carries. If you're planning anybody in this backfield is clearly going to be a kenyan drake. Because i think you'll you'll catch the ball. Darren waller has to be in your lineup. Brian edwards by the way just three for forty against pittsburgh despite derek carr throwing for three eighty two east got a tough match-up against avian howard and byron jones Not a guy. I'm excited to roster right now. It's kind of great. It's kind of waller. a meeting. Renfro is wide receiver three. And that's the funny part. Ross derek carr has all these passing yards and they don't have a lot of guys you trust your outplaying zeh jones. Like i would love to say. Go play henry rugs. But you know how that could go. The guy called twenty-five asses last year so there's a they're mixing the game around. I think john gruden's doing a sensational job with this offense Getting the most out of it. But it's not one that is overly conducive to fantasy right now until we get a clear picture. Seattle is that minnesota to good wide receiver game. They can put up point nominal wide receiver. These teams have been putting up points. Ross what odds would you have given me on. Justin jefferson being the wide receiver three on his own team after two weeks. Because adam feeling engage a osbourne have more fantasy points than. I've been a kid j osborne gaming university of buffalo. I mean that kick play. i'm gonna play. So here's the thing. He has given minnesota every reason to change what we thought minnesota was going to beat now. Of course the catalyst for this was the earth smith injury. If i knit doesn't get hurt. We're probably not talking about. Aj osborne right. Now because of smith is out there. It's earth smith. It's tyler conklin and it's stealing in jefferson and that's the base personnel. That is what they would be doing but now they're playing a lot of eleven personnel because they they don't trust. Chris aren't in yet on the what the lover trust chris. Hermano no went up. We know about chris. Arment keep an eye on galvin cooked by the way because he has a minor ankle injury. Think he's going to be okay. You know he wrote. He came back from injury twice in that game last week. But he's not one hundred percent so keep an eye on them something pops up in practice this week. Alexander madison would be kind of speculative at. But you know what you're doing. I mean you're feeling you're playing jefferson. I don't expect the jeffersons going to be the wide receiver three here for much longer in terms of production. Minnesota's a home underdog. So i think it's a good spot for cousins to put up numbers. So you know. Minnesota's minnesota and i love talking about minnesota every week because i don't have to say anything smart because they make me smart just because it's easy to play those guys by the way feeling nine for eighty two and two touchdowns against seattle last year. What about seattle in this game Seattle's another great team. Start a start before guys you who to start is the decay. Metcalf squeaky wheel game coming soon. Because tyler lockett has exploded twice so far this year again. If you're in the business of picking the right seahawk receiver for for dfs that has been a losing proposition. Because you would think this could be a decay. Metcalf game minnesota's corners But shod bruins been getting roasted about patrick. Peterson did up solid enough job. Last week on laundry hopkins. But you know rhonda they blew coverage rondell more had belong touchdown. Aging green scored a touchdown. They gave up a couple of deep balls to christian kirk. This is a game where seattle is going to be able to throw the football Tyler lockett by the way have an decay. Metcalf have accounted for sixty percent of russell wilson's targets and eighty six percent of his air yards. That is absurd. He's literally throwing the ball guys. That's he's throwing the ball to. So you know you play those guys who play russell wilson and you play chris carson He ranks chris cars by fifth in team share of of carry share behind only derrick henry. Najji harris joe mixing and alvin cook. So chris carson russell wilson decay. Mecca lock it. Lock them load. 'em start them. Don't think about anybody else. Don't think about any other. Brake pads. Joe than d'oro last elite brake pads available exclusively at autozone. We all know last parts proven. Tough d'oro last elite like anything else that's elite in life takes it to a whole other level. They last three times longer than a typical d'oro last pad. That is good news. Safer smoother quieter stops performing longer. Copper free ceramic so. They're eco-friendly there at all autozone locations. They have six thousand nationwide more ways to shop online and store. Look you'll have no problem picking up a set. We need a most. The future of stopping starts with dirt last elite brake pads. Only at autozone. Love me some autozone and love me. Joe the game of the week. It is the bucks at the rams both offenses firing on all cylinders both defenses. Joe perhaps a little disappointing thus far. Ross there will be no brake pads in this game. this is. This is pedal to the metal. For this one i am fired up to see the buccaneers in the rams. I mean and let's talk about all. Right i got. I got a really good stat here. You got jose you guys start with the bucks okay. We have news. It's going to affect everything adam. Schefter just tweeted five seconds ago antonio brown on the kobe list. Oh okay what does that mean for your project was. I mean for the game joe. Yeah well first and foremost it. It all depends on whether or not vaccinated because if he's vaccinated than he can get back quicker if he's not. I think he's gotta miss at least ten days so that puts that puts week three in n. Week four in jeopardy so let's let let let's pump the pump the brake pads on antonio brown right now but once we get more information on him we will we will Start to reevaluate okay. So here's here's the stat for you. That i was coming. Antonio brown does not affect us. because he's not artists. At least not yet. Do you know who the tampa bay buccaneers goal. Line back is ross. I saw your tweet. I don't feel your thunder though. It's tom brady. The buccaneers have run five. Plays inside the opponent's five yard line. All five have been passes. All five have been touchdowns to to crock to evans one to godwin. Tom brady and ongoing full narrative street right now but. What does tom brady have to accomplish other than narrative street. He's accomplished everything else. He wants to break peyton. Manning single season touchdown record he and gronkowski. Gronk was on the manning broadcast on monday night football and he essentially said. Hey peyton marvin. We're coming for you baby. The wider the receiver quarterback touchdown hook up. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure how far behind gronk and brady are from manning and harrison but it's well within the realm of possibility that these two guys are going to break the record. I think they are at one hundred and two and brady and manning are and manning arison route one hundred and fourteen. There are two records to keep an eye on. Tom brady wants to though for over fifty touchdowns this year and i think he and gronk are basically focusing on getting into the end zone double digit times this year. That is pure narrative street. But what else does. Tom brady. Have to accomplish Jalen ramsey has been moving into the slot more this year. Which is interesting for chris. Godwin i think it could be another mike evans game. Michael pittman get got up. Got over one hundred yards from the perimeter last week against the rams and keep that in. Mind if you're playing a buccaneer running back. It's leonard fournette. Ronald jones sticks. What about for the rams. Well let's keep an eye on the status of henderson. He's been a top ten fantasy running back thus far. But he's got a rib injury and they traded for sodium shell not because they didn't trust darrow henderson's ability they trust they didn't trust his availability but bears out. Darryl henderson is injured as somebody. Who has daryl henderson on a fantasy team. I want daryl henderson to sit in this game. Because i want that decision made for me because i like i if it comes out and sony. Michelle is the lead. Back in this game and henderson's active. It's going to screw a lot of fantasy lineup. So i want that decision made for me but if henderson has ruled out i think sony michelle's an rb to if henderson plays i think he is a low end flex. I don't know how you can trust them now. The buccaneers sean murphy. Bunting is one of the premier slot receivers in the nfl he a slot raw corners in the nfl. Rather he is on. I r cooper cups. Target's share is thirty eight percent that leads all players. all players. Guber cup is the top five fantasy receiver right now after week. One panic on robert woods. His target share rose to thirty percent in week. Two so he's fine to play cup of stafford's guy and here's another guy. Maybe you can trade for him on the low end because after a big game in week one tyler had just one catch in week too but he still played one hundred percent of the snaps. He just didn't get targets in that game against the colts. What about joe. For the packers and the niners sunday night packers got back in rhythm a little bit monday night at that was good to see the one thing that i questioned with the packers here right now though is what is this running back rotation going to be like now it. It didn't look like good news for aj dylan in that game. Because the packers dominating in the fourth quarter and he's still had under twenty rushing yards but aaron jones was so hot that i just wonder if they were like. Why would we go away from aaron. Jones chelsea scored four touchdowns in that game. It was great to see devante atoms. Get involved but how about aaron rodgers uncharacteristically ross. I thought he overthrew marquette valdez. Scantly three times for potential touchdowns i vow this gatling got behind the defense. He ends up with a goose egg. But i thought rossi got behind the defense. I san francisco still has problems with corners but They did a good job on philly last week. I think they challenged jalen hurts to throw the throat of the parameter or and because they didn't think jalen hurts with throat in the middle of the field which he didn't eras will throw to the middle of the field. That is not an issue. I wonder if the devante atoms is going to have another big game. I would anticipate the corner. Performance of san francisco. Last week is not going to hold up into week. Number three against the green bay packers. No i think that's a good point. What about the niner's offensively. You know that was weird. Game against philly I don't think either team was sharp. Offensively the niners just managed to get a couple of long drives. Together deebo samuel. I think you gotta start him at this point. I'm very disappointed in george kittle but if you drafted george kettle. I think you've got no issue. I i mean. I think you have no choice but to start up. Just four for seventeen against philadelphia. I think the big question people are going to have is in the backfield for good reason. Everybody is hurt joe. Michael hasty has a high ankle. Sprain trae sermon has a concussion. Obviously we know about most jeff wilson. Elisa mitchell has a stinger. he had to come back in that game out of necessity. Is he going to be okay. For sunday that backfield is something. We've got to watch throughout the week. Don't have all the information as we record here on a wednesday. Yeah they picked up Think a jock. Patrick or josh says patrick bengals practice squad something to keep an eye on. Finally monday night joe. It's the eagles and the cowboys yet. So let's look at the cowboys first and foremost because we've got an injury that needs to be watched mark. Cooper's got a rib injury and if a mark cooper's got that rib injury wonder what the and he can't play or these limited which we don't know yet by the way they're not even they don't even have to put out a practice report until thursday afternoon because this is monday game. What does the cowboys approach going to be. Now let's knock down a little narrative street here. Amari cooper has historically struggled when darius lie has shadowed him the eagles are not shadowing as a matter of fact they're playing the highest percentage of zone defense in the entire nfl under new defensive coordinator. Jonathan gannon now. Maybe that changes. If cooper place maybe slaves like dude. I own this guy. Let me cover him. He's hurt cover them. Maybe that changes but through two games. That hasn't been the case. For dairy sleigh. they've been playing sides The eagles stylistically. And i heard greg cosell talking about this. And i think he'll. He'll probably talk about it with you on the ross. Tucker football podcast. Jonathan gannon and Brandon staley the head coach of the chargers come from similar backgrounds. They're tight. They both play a lot of too high safety split safety. What are the cowboys decided to do against chargers. Last week run they came out running. And tony pollard has been excellent. You can make the argument. He's better than zeke. And i actually thought zico alright against the chargers. So i think the cowboys are gonna come out and run. Zeke is an rb one. Fringy guy i think pollard's a good flexes up the option this week. Especially if cooper is one hundred percent because they've been flexing powered out to the perimeter where he can catch some passes so i think that backfield is going to be a huge part of a dallas does against philadelphia the flip side of that is phillies. Run defense has been excellent through two games. Mike davis going nowhere ally. Mitchell going nowhere. So it's going to be interesting interesting chess match to the cowboys. Decide against similar defense. Stylistically what we played last week. Are we going to give our backs. Thirty carries again or are we going to chuck it around with the receiving. Or that's dinged up. Ross you have. You have mark cooper dinged up and obviously michael gallops out and you're playing your backup right. Tackle terron steel and that brings into account philadelphia. Losing brandon graham for the season which is a big blow to their defensive line If i have my cowboys dak prescott. Cd lamb pollard zeke. I'm starting all those guys. Obviously we have to wait on a mark uber. Eagles on offense joe. It was weird game last week. how about this stat This is from ben fennel in week. One jalen hurts had the lowest average depth of target in the nfl in week. Two we have the highest average depth of target in the nfl. There's gotta be something in between there right Zakar is on the cove list by the way so we'll have to see if he's he's apparently vaccinated so he might be able to play If he tests negative a couple of times So just keep an eye on that. I think the philly run game has been spectacular. I think miles sanders has looked great. i think kenny gain. Well has been a really good option for them and jalen hurts. By the way miss. Devante smith for a long touchdown. He should had him. The ball was underthrown and it was late. Devante smith is getting open. So he's the guy on most comfortable playing in this passing game I would love to see jalen hurts. Go down the seems a little bit more. That's a weakness in his game. It's a weakness that keiler murray had Kyla murray is starting to improve on that. But see jalen hurts can do it But the eagles also by the way lost right guard brandon brooks for a short time They have them on. I r with a peck strain that means rookie land and dickerson did well. In the run game last week is going to be in. Wouldn't be shocked to see. Philly tried to attack the cowboys on the ground with miles sanders in this game. His name is joe dolan at g.

Our own venebles in your head spoke with him. He is battling kovic but is doing all right. He gave any bonsignore. The thumbs up so wanted to keep everybody in the loop there as well but right now. Let's get into things with phil jones. We had a great conversation on all sides of the ball with the raiders. What things have looked like during training camp and we start off talking about the offensive side of the ball. So let's get into it right now phil jones all right everybody joining us now on the takeaways edition of the vegas nation. Podcast it's phil jones. You know him as the nfl digital media content writer. He's a sports reporter for game central and hosts of unfiltered truth. Find him on unfiltered truth. Dot com phil. Thanks so much for taking the time to join me today. Preacher you appreciate you. Bring me on how you doing today. I'm great i'm out here. Raiders training camp. And that's why. I brought you on. Because i really wanted to get your take on some things. I know people told me all the time that phil jones. Nfl on twitter is the guy to follow when you want. Good raiders content when you're looking for nfl content. So i really wanted to get some takes from you on what you're seeing right. Now with raiders training camp. And i'm gonna start here. Because this is something i saw you put out on twitter with Mario just your take right now. What you think you've seen out of some of the tape and some of the looks from marcus. Mariota coming in to the season with the raiders. Well this is one thing that stuck out to me just gone back from the all season. I know a lot of people who had to talk. Mariota could be traded to the patriots or he could be a trade option to washington football team or even chicago. But it just didn't sit right with me and the you also look at jon gruden. John ru didn't really get a chance to use marcus mariota last year because one. He was out injured and came back late. You know we get them a when car had went down and you saw what he could do. And that's a guy that if he's number two you want to hold onto him and you can not just having waiting in the wing. You can have him in certain packages all fence and also use them in the red zone. And that's something that the raiders are gonna need. They're gonna need everything possible to help them become better. Ribs zone offense specially in the second half of the season. That's something that. I asked josh jacobs about today. In fact he spoke here on. Friday at raiders. Training camp and i asked him about that. Because you know. And i know that he talks a lot to marcus allen. He's been kind of a mentor to josh. Over the years and marcus allen had these ways getting into the red zone. That would just like ed get people so excited and infuse more importantly the other opposing defenses so If anything what do you hope that josh jacobs can take away from marcus allen in learning what to do with some of the takes in the red zone to convert more points touchdowns i would really just say if marcus like. Hey i need to go back and look at a few tapes One go back and look at that risking a super bowl game. Yeah looking to move up on. But i with josh jacobs. I think the one saying it's just maintaining staying healthy and he's going to have to find a way to get his. He's going to have to give that speed. He's gonna have to really was one thing. I'm looking at the yards per average were. They went down by a yard from last. What is rookie was. He's going to have to find a way to get that back up. Trust hitting the holes. We alarming in our. I mean yes. You don't have roddy hubs and you don't have gave jackson a little bit of a struggle offense on office line in the red zone especially with those two making a push and now you got denzo. Good right there. You're gonna have andrei james there. Those two guys are younger faster. Low bit smaller than a hudson jackson. And i'm just gonna say this. Josh jacob needs to just trust those two guys to open up the whole he can just get end zone and is probably going to be some other plays they can use with. Josh makes swing passes. And say i don't know maybe having do like a little running back pass. I want to see josh jacobs doda football. Why not you know. it's funny. I went on the air recently. Talked about maybe. They use mario in some sort of other package towards the red zone. Once they get down there maybe they find ways to bring him in to the offense and i use the taste of hill reference. But that's not the only way they can utilize them. And when you see or hear you know. Jon gruden today talking about how they've created different packages to really utilize what they can out of. Marcus skill set. That are much different. From derek's how much is that kind of pique. Your interest as to how the raiders might use him it in certain situational Offensive you know situations certain situations. Excuse me for stay of my new mouth. i'm not. I'm not surprised by ev. Jon gruden has a guy like marietta out there and then you also have barry car out there. You want to try to find the best ways to win by any means necessary and having marcus mariota mariota out there even in certain packages if you start to see him a little bit more than what some folks would expect. I don't care. I wanna see it. I know jon gruden doesn't care 'cause he wants to win. I mean we wanna see this team when we thought you know in twenty twenty. They will be able to come out. Yells kobe year. But you wanted to see this team. Come into vegas in. Get their first playoff berth. But that wasn't the case this year you have all these pieces around that offense especially mariota be an entrepreneur healthy. I'm gonna find ways to get him out on that field and from what. I was hearing that practice way. That offense was flooring today. I wanna see more of him. And i want that decree confusions for defensive coordinators to try to prep against it. A lot of people talk about third year receivers having breakouts seasons. Sometimes it happens in the second year to and we've seen that in the past with others. But when you start looking at the development of henry rugs the people that are now around him with john brown with zeh jones standing out in campus. Well i just wanna get your take on first. Let's start with henry rugs and what you think he can do this year to really make a big jump on this offense. I think they're going to look to get more involved. Romy less captain obvious. They're gonna look to get them involved more. The one thing we all had the question mark is is route running. And i believe that henry rose is a dedicated young man that is willing to better his game. I know he is willing to do anything necessary to make sure that his route running is at perfection. And one thing. We're all going to be looking for Essay what ram scrimmage that. They're going to have coming up Indefinitely week one of the season. Because you're going up against the ravens. Most likely he might be up against marcus. Peters so we got to see how that route running is we got to see how florida's but i definitely believe he can get it done. I think you're gonna see a big boost from henry. Rugs not just gonna see that outright. You'll see soon slasher probably gonna see some end browsing he's gonna pull it off and i think he's going to be that guy that oh you know we thought we were just going to get about maybe six or five or six hundred yards at least out of him. I think you're going to definitely see about eight hundred nine hundred season from him. Take the over on henry rugs. I like it think about like you were saying with the rams scrimmages that are coming up and rises in a go against one of the best and jalen ramsey as well so when you think about that challenge and then probably facing like you said marcus. Peters and first game of the season. How much do you think that jalen ramsey would be a good test for henry rugs for when he goes up against the rams definitely a good test former opposed the a bit challenge for them. I mean you're going against arguably one of the best corners in the nfl. So you know he's going to try to get inside his head is going gonna be. It's going to be allowed. Jaw dropping going back to four. You're gonna see. Li- oh am i gonna be able to get an opportunity to just blow right past them or is he going to. Just keep jam me up at line. Him bugs he. He's going to be able to try to pull some things off but then there's also going to be some up and downs. Maybe and say he just going to have to just learn from that experience. Learn from that day. Take what you can get in to find better solutions to better your game. But i think that's going to be interesting match of doing The skirmish as a point of focus for the raiders. On offense and i'm gonna get into defense here after we take a break. But when you start thinking about the raiders offense mostly just where do you see the main area that they need to improve in to become a playoff team in twenty twenty one well like i said beginning. Red zone offense Trying to score in the second half they struggled. We started seeing them. Settle for more field. Goals i would say. Jon gruden needs to take a little bit more chances on fourth down a derek carr said. He's going to do everything he can. Sam dolo bootleg. Let's run out and just call his own number alec inglewood involved more. That was something that i noticed last year. You have him right there. And he's only had three carries for four yours for the entire season. I think those numbers can go up. the second thing is if they want improvement. It's gotta be good chemistry between the other receivers in derek carr that we saw the chemistry between him in Hunter renfro you definitely see the chemistry between him and dan waller but you have other pieces around you and you wanna make sure that everybody's all on the same page about the timing if they have that down. I believe the raiders. Offense can not just be a top ten. I think they can be within the top five. They don't need to go out and get guys like devante atoms in big massive blockbuster trades you have everything right there. This can be a great offense. Everybody just needs to make sure they're on the same page and if there won't if they're going to be on the same page they can succeed and go to great heights. Who is the most underrated player on this team. Offensively that you expect to make a big splash in twenty twenty one. Who is sir interesting one. I just thought. I'd throw it out there because i think of the waller's out there in the rugs and the things that they need to do. But i liked what you had to say about elegant. I think he's definitely a contender for you. Know kind of sleeper on this offense that we know what he can do in blocking situations and The spider two banana situations monitoring. What you think about him or somebody else you know. I don't know who you might have in mind. Well he would be one of them but one one guy. I'm gonna say kenyan drake. I mean we've all been talking about you know right here all talking about jacob's waller renfro rugs even brian edwards. But that was one of you guys that you brought in free agency. Everybody's wanted why you paying this guy all this money. You got josh jacobs if you remember a few things if you ever watch alabama the way they use the running backs just if you just watch it. Go watch to about it right. And i was like. Wow i remember. They had little one. Beheaded one two punch alabama as jon. Gruden just trying to do the same thing but then again jon gruden had that going with Tyrone wheatley in charlie garner. He's a big fan of the two headed running back machine and also apparently a big fan of alabama offensive lineman. He's talked about. Alex leatherwood today. And the physicality the he'll bring up front. That'll help maybe Enhance like you were talking about. The yards per gain on average for josh jacobs right. Now i think it's around. I unknown looking at numbers officially in front of me. I think it's like at three point. Eight three point nine. So yeah yeah. Obviously you won't be a five so that should help to open up some holes but let's go ahead and take a quick break right here in neck and back. We're gonna talk about some defense here with phil jones on the takeaways edition of the vacant locals.

Heidi fang and joined today with phil. Jones we're talking all things readers here on a wednesdays actually when this airs. But we're talking here on the weekend fool disclaimer. Just in case something comes up and you guys are like. Why are you talking about old stuff but i do want to bring this up because it just flashier across my time line on twitter that daniel carlson is now on the reserve kovic list and we heard today that the arik retired after landing on the list and he spent a couple days on the list before they announced his official retirement. And all these rules all the things that are coming down this season you know. I think a lot of people thought that we were going to be passed. This in the twenty twenty one season and a lot of things. It'd be back to business as usual. But it's still looming. I mean with in terms of would happen now with with daniel carlson. How concerned do you think everybody is. Maybe about this going into the twenty twenty one season. well I put like china set things where the guys can stay. Save woeful for all season. No games getting rescheduled order. Going to and. Jon you know him he is not looking to deal with that will what he dealt with last year with cove it and now he had got sick from what they were saying. Then he'll look at abled with out you. Had trent brown was out. You could go down the list of guys that were out. It hurt them. It hurt them a lot. And you know they're asking the guys get back sonate and so far looks like the majority of the whole team has been vaccinated. I think i think he said there are probably about ninety five percent. I believe yeah so you know if if the team has asked me to do it and from what. You're reading with the nfl rolls on us. We know the memo they sent out they want everybody to be at basically one hundred percent and if you get it you know you're risking everybody at losing a game check and then also a team law. I mean that that's something you don't want to deal with no not at all and as you think about it and today just jacobs said the entity today being on a saturday. Just jacobs said that Theo riddick decided to step away from the game because of Because of landing on the kovic lists and that he had to put his health. I so i just want to say. I wish the riddick all the best. Seven year veteran of the league. Good going into second year. Here with the raiders and You know i thought he could have been. Somebody had a good change of pace for this team. So i was looking forward to seeing him. And of course that veteran presence but unfortunately he has decided to retire so just want to put that little bit of news in case. Anybody missed it. as we start to look now at what. This raiders team needs to do defensively. That's been obviously a huge point of focus for the raiders. After last year's firing a paul gunther and then they bring in. Gus bradley and a lot of people talked about how does bradley's system what brings to this team. That's very young. How much installs can they do. And get things ready for the season with him during this training camp and i i wanna say that unique and guk way looks absolutely insane out there on the field you can see the presence that he brings to the game. So what are you hoping to see. Out of him on this raiders. Defense this year. I and doc way being a guy from pg county same place. i'm born and raised. You loved it. It's like oh my gosh dream come true you saying one of the guys that grow up in the same areas you. They finally get to the same team that you love and you hear the things that he said you know it was meant for me just to be a raider. I was to say i love. I love him say this but he brings so much to this team. Not just you know skillset wise but just leadership and i think some of the things that the defense was really missing and having a presence Starting to show on this team this year. You starting to see it. Rub off on certain guys. You starting to definitely rub off on a max. Crosby they're i think they're going to be a low nights deal for this Defense and i'm a i love to see it. I think with ganic just coming off the edge. You definitely gonna end up seeing about double digit sacks. The speed from him is something. That the raiders while say. The speed in strength is something. That the raiders have not had sense. I mean matt. I mean i'm not saying he's matt but you know this is something that they've been yearning for four minute. They've having the ups and downs for pass russia's since that trade at went down so i was thinking about obviously the defensive accent where a lot of people have as far as expectations there. Because i don't know you know last year what fell short more. Was that coverage with the secondary or was it the pressure on the defensive line not being their lack of it so I wanted to get your take now to on like additions. Like casey hayward people who can make a difference there in the secondary and Elizabeth start there. And then i'll get into the next part of that question. What casey. Hey being there in the secondary One is a big impact. Someone is already familiar with gus. Bradley defense we saw how he's had a good performance under it. I mean yeah. He had up and down Last season but when casey was out net zone coverage that's something that we're gonna see a lot with a gus bradley's defense i mean i'm pretty impressive. I'm impressed that they finally went out. And got casey hayward come i thought he should have got him a couple years back but Having having him out there is like no once again. That's another major leadership presence for that secondary. And i think he's gonna be immediate impact for this Defense i feel like that as well and the second part of that question. I just didn't want to extended out too much. It was a lot. I think is our on. Damon are net and where he can do in his second and i think for a lot of the rookies that were brought in last year. They had a unfair advantage against them because they had no off season. They didn't have the time to bill chemistry and then to top it off with our net. He's injured at the time and then had concussions so like he's gone through it all there in terms of School of hard knocks coming into his first year. So what do you think. We might be able to see out of him in his second year. Damon are not you know he hasn't. We had his ups and downs. I think he has something to show everybody in. You know if you tennessee on raiders. Twitter you know as always fans or drop in an put you know. Some players tend to be ready to kind of class back at it like you know. You don't know what isn't that but thank everybody can talk the talk but you gotta walk. The walk and with damon are net. He has a lot to show this year. He has a lot to show for the staff to staff that. I'm the guy that you really want it the day you drafted. I'm the guy that's gonna come out here and show you what i can truly bring to the table. I know i had the you know on all last year. But i'm gonna show you this year while i'm your guy and why should be here long term. He has a lot. He's got a lot to do but you know i believe he can do it and the believe he can step up to the table and do it. I'm particularly excited to see what trayvon mary brings to the game As a rookie at tcu. I thought he was going to be drafted higher than he was. So when i think the raiders got him in the second round i thought wow what a steel Would he make of him coming into this game. And this year as ago saying they actually have A training camp. They haven't off season program so for someone like him to be able to have those kind of reps and to see you. Know wet gus. Bradley system brings. What do you think about him and the expectations of fans might have on them. We have a ball. Now yeah right we have somebody that's gonna be picking that ball off and we're probably going to be saying something that the raiders needed a lot last year turnovers something that babe been struggling with. Since twenty eighteen was getting a large amount of turnover was interceptions. And i know he can create a eating calls. Fumbles as well so having him back there and also having him especially impasse coverage. We haven't had that in a minute. You know we thought we were in we. I had called joseph. We had called for twenty nineteen or twenty eight and twenty nineteen but when you saw him in nineteen it was This is not looking good but you know you got him back. And i think he's just going to be on that storm savings out but more being at free safety. I think that's a true free safety that you've been needing for a long time. And i believe he's gonna get he's gonna turn a lot of hits he's gonna show a lot of folks why he should have been a first round pick. Because as i recall he was really high on the cowboys board. And i think he may end up shocking to nfl being rookie of the year. I've seen some really nice intangibles out of him. And when i say that i mean like when he's out and the ball looks like there's nobody that's going to be able to leap up and get it. He grabs it and the way that he's able to kind of put himself in a position when it looks like his feet or go in another way he's able to twist and find where that ball is like. You said you got yourself a ball hawk and then Trayvon merrick. I think but i wanted to ask a couple more things here. Just on the defensive front Similar to what. I did in the offense of conversation that we have is. Is there anyone particularly that. You think is going to be a real difference maker on the defense for the raiders year. Oh man yes yes. There is actually two guys that i've kept a good eye on and there was something that really stuck out to me this This week during camp I think was vinnie. Said it you know johnson abram. He's been sitting back. Just say even quiet. He's just focusing in just watching listening to learning. Now we know that. Johnson aven can beat the heat seeker and can't guy just hawks mass. Yes i love it. You know i it was. I got a chance to talk to a hall of fame. Duckie us steve atwater and he loves him he he loves savings gang and you just kind of slow it down a little bit. And if he's don't listen camp you know just slowing down just focusing what they haven't you don't hear. Pf had him as one of the worst ranked safeties and nfl. Yeah i think he's gonna that's gonna change. I don't think he's going to have any struggles. I think he's going to be the guy that they drafted him to be. I think everybody just really kind of had like a bad foam in twenty twenty. But you know you have a man you ever leader of. You have a leader. Among men and gus bradley in you'll also have raw milas back there guys and secondary to truly guide them to be better than what folks think. They are sorry. I'm sorry. I see success from johnson abram this year he's a sleepers who whereas the other one you said you had a couple to abraham and who's the other other ones on the line quinton jefferson. Yes you know. i'm trying to figure out. Why hasn't he been talked about. I mean this guy. When he was with seattle he was vicious when he was with the buffalo bills last year. You saw what he did in terry wise so our line. He got in and create a habit. Got the dead car few times actually. So that's a guy expect to see to stand out on delana. We have some guys that were all trying to figure out who's gonna be lou. Who's the guy starting there but quitting jefferson is going to be one guy. Believe would actually start. Nba right off coming right off the bat and just shohei he. You want me to play inside. I'm gonna show you what. I got and folks that i've talked to that. Are you know. I've got a few buffalo fans i know. There said he should've stayed inside all year attack when when he did. I see it. I see why. Now i'm gonna have to bring you back for another show because this is all the time that i have for today but before i let you go. I wanted to get Some things from you as far as which working on and what people can look out for where they can find you on social media all of that. Good stuff right now. Get ready to work on two things. projected fifty three man roster and getting ready to work on this win lawsuit project Prediction okay. i know a lot of folks alike. Heard but i try not to do it too early. Because right you got camp you gotta fat rent some injuries. That a factor in. Who's going where who's gonna end up being a starter there that spot so those things play a big factor in you know. I was going to wait on acid probably about week to week. Three of preseason guys would get my fifty three man roster and you get the win loss projection net. You guys can find me on twitter phil jones in fell more on facebook jones. You guys can find you an unfiltered truth. Dot com a follow. The unfiltered truth on twitter and our next show will be monday night. It's very exciting. I'm going to be watching that. And also just because you said it and now i have to throw this in there. You said you're working on the fifty three man roster. Can you reveal one or two. The names that you have on the bubble right now. Who for me. It's hard to be as i look at the wide receiver room and you see all this talent there guys like willie snead's jones john brown rugs edwards renfro. Yeah it's like how were they gonna cut this down. Plus you have guys that have been key. Members who've stepped up like he'll dos marcel. eaten in. so you start to wonder. Where's the where's the line to be drawn here with the way receiver department you know. I think they're going to try to hold onto keelan. Does i think he's gonna end up being back on the practice squad for one more season. Yeah but one of the guys got a bubble Is jalen chard The next guy. I have on my bubble is nevin lawson. Even though we've heard a lot about nevin lawson. I just feel that with him. Have no two game suspension. One of those younger guys are going to try to step up and just hold that spot down and especially with damon are net. If you go back and look at him at ohio state he can also play inside in the slot And then nate hobbes's another guy that played in the big ten. He was a major impact for that defense. So those are two guys. I got my bubble right. Now that i'm gonna keep a close eye and see how things play out but right now and reason why got rashard on that bubble. I'm looking at a guy and trae rates. I know he's undrafted guy. But i mean then again you have jalen machado's undrafted guy see what he can bring to the table when it comes down. Preseason and it. I like it a lot and heavy keeping an eye on maybe sending you notes phil what. I saw appreciate the time today. We're gonna have to have you back on some time during the season takes on everything once. It's all starting to play out after you get your win loss record out there an imprint and i'll have to bug you about it somewhere. Maybe after the first quarter of the season be like fill. Is this what you predicted. So i love it. Thank you so much for coming on again phil jones. You can find him on twitter phil jones.

Most apparently dale was killing karaoke out there so that was good to hear and yeah. We tied it all up with our saturday fantasy football draft. Your boy ended up with the number one. Pick to draft gmc. Like i told y'all a couple of episodes ago that i wanted the number three pick you know. Obviously i didn't manifest that but i'm not going to be. I'm not going to be mad about number one. Obviously so i it picks. Emc knock over. Thank you just like. I told my boy digi not to over. Think the number one pick. When you get it just pixies going get all the touches in the world so i did that and i got a really stout team got justin. Herbert as my. Qb got the two tight ends keitel. Andrus 'cause we in our league we have our flex is a wide receiver tight influx. We can play two tight ends. So i got kid andrus. I believe it was the third and fifth round got justin jefferson in the second round. I got some receivers. So i got a pretty stout team. Backups are pretty good. And then i made a smooth swerve maneuver on one of my boys so the other day i was out here record. Last week's podcast win. Gus edwards tore his acl. And so i saw the news breaking my phone and me and my boys in our chat. I saw nobody had posted it so i posted it and i just made a joke like oh levian is going to be the starter now. Because he had just signed to their practice squad. But i had no idea that that would happen. I was talking alma ass. I had no fucking clue. So lamar drops latavius murray. Who to his credit was not with the team because the saints did not want to pay him what he wanted to be paid so he was released so granted. He did not necessarily have a team at the time but he there were rumors that he was gonna signed to the practice squad with the ravens to anyways he dropped. Tavis mary to pick pickup levian bell. After said this on the chat. I waited and picked up murray after he came off of waivers and now murray is going to end up being the starter in baltimore as long as nothing happens. He looked good last night and he has the experience so i don't see why they would wouldn't start him over the rookie. I mean obviously. Tyson williams played good. I think he had like ten carries for sixty yard so a good game for the rook. But you got the experience tavis. Mary who's a good back still only like thirty something like that. Yeah you're gonna use him. So i expect him to start. Levian devante freeman. Are there too. But i don't really expect them to do too much. They may be there. But i mean you never know you never know anything can happen. Injuries happen anything can happen. So we'll see. What have i just thought. It was funny because i was just talking to my ass. And he dropped him in picked him up and then i ended up picking up. The murray scored a touchdown last night. Installed levian bell didn't even activate so that is the smart. Gm maneuvers of a veteran champion fantasy football general manager such as myself. He's only a few that have multiple championships such as myself. So you got to respect those of my expertise in caliber. United mean my come up respected not plan with my fucking name angles. Say no i wanted to come looking at your face like a man. I just come. Let your nose listen. Respect on my name anyways. Great time amazing time. Football has started. Now my friends left. I missed them dearly. Probably going for thanksgiving so policy them. Dan but until i see them again next time we have football. We have football yes. The first weekend of football just happened. My raiders actually one last night. They beat the ravens in our first home. Game in front of fans in allegiance stadium because last season we did not allow fans in the stadium. So this was the first home game in that new. Beautiful death star stadium in las vegas in front of fans and boy was a doozy. I'm talking about. My heart. Was man when edwards scott that ball and we thought it was a touchdown. Everybody was celebrating and they caught it back. I was like man we on the one yard. Line even peyton. Manning was i give it to them. I think my boy said on the chat. And i was like yeah man. There's no way that we don't we. Don't get this low balled right stuff on the rhine penalty. The way the raider way with a with a penalty for sure and russell wilson interception at the goal line by car so i could not believe it. I was flabbergasted. I was astounded. I was befuddled. I was very many things and almost cried. I started praying. I was like oh this. Can't this can't be happening. This can't be the way we lose our first game. Please don't let this app knows. Please please please so thankfully we got to stop. And lamar jackson fumbled the ball thankfully. And we we went down and hail. Mary bomb does as jones. Even though it wasn't a hail mary. It wasn't like the end of the game but he just car just went back and just throw it up as high as he could zeh jones. Just outran the coverage. And i believe it was marcus peters not marcus marlin humphrey. I believe was uncovered. Got beat pretty bad. I mean probably expecting a run. No one's really expecting you to pass their. But that's why. Derek carr is the comeback king the comeback kid i saw a stat earlier with seven man. Rush which is just a casino blitz in the nfl rushed old house. He has two touchdowns in the past two years against the seven man rush Last year against the jets as well if you remember the end of that game while the whole nfl every single team in nfl over that span only has one as well though some other things about him he actually now has twenty two career. Fourth quarter comebacks and twenty five game winning drives in his career. So that is what doesn't even make any sense hold on. I'm reading this off an email so forgive me for not. I thought i checked earlier. That doesn't how do you have twenty two fourth quarter comebacks but twenty five game winning drives. Wouldn't all your game. Winning drives be in the fourth quarter. You're not counting a game winning drive in the third quarter. I guess it's possible. That doesn't okay anyways. Whatever that's what it says here either way. Let's say he has twenty five fourth quarter com due to come back king so whether he resigns or not. This is the last year his contract. I say we should resign him to a proper proper deal commensurate with his with his talent level. And he's a good quarterback he's a great quarterback and he's great and gruden system. So i think we should keep them. I don't think we should go after. Air rogers much. I would love to have aaron rodgers. He's older car. Still only like dirty car still got years ahead of them. So we'll see what happens there anyways. Moving on and now i'll without third. It is yobo the street professor. I'm here is this thing on is distinct our own. Hello is it me. you're looking phone. You can see in your iran's love and they Stop at my my bed. I'm i'm a little little baked right now as a little bit doesn't always it's me it's me anyways. Let's get this party started. Show we thank you again for joining us this week. Moving onto the entertainment world. Britney spears after all this drama line everything that's going on. Her father finally asked to end the converse conservation ship. You know what fuck you. Anyways her father's ending. It finally which i don't know why he wanted to keep having control of grown as women like you already got enough money. Just let her ass go and do whatever she wanted to. So you britney spears fans are probably happy now especially that guy. That was crying on the internet. Longtime lebron yellow. Yeah i remember i remember. He was under the covers. The and how dare anyone out there. Make photo pretty after all been through. You're lucky you even performed for you. Bastards lay leave. Britney spears alone right now a minute anyone who has a problem with are you with me. Because she's not well right now. I'm good good anyways. Kanye west put out an album. I had heard he was putting out. But i did not know when it came out but apparently called donde which i believe was his mother's name. If i remember correctly apparently it has a lot of songs on it. Because apparently i just found this out this morning twenty. Three of the songs landed on the billboard. Hot one hundred. So i thought i thought i read that incorrectly. So i'd like did a double take and i was like. Oh maybe they mean twenty three hundred and his whole career. I mean twenty three hundred twenty three on the top one hundred in his whole career. I was like oh. That makes sense. And i was like wait. I look back down. I read it again. I said don to twenty three songs. I say what the hell hummy songs on this album. And why yawkey pipe in this man up. I know twenty. Three songs shouldn't have been on the top one hundred. I mean unless he made a thirty five album psalm. Forty song then. Yeah maybe half of them would have been on there. But i know he ain't twenty-five album song you're telling me twenty three of them were we must have some shitty ass musicians out. Nowadays don't listen to the radio. Here's why don't listen. pop meet exactly what. Oh by the way he is. The seventh artists ever with ten number one albums. Good foxsports will sell ads for their super bowl super bowl fifty two wow super bowl fifty seven and they will sell those super bowl fifty seven ads for a record fifty for a record. Six million dollars per thirty seconds. Jeez louise that's a lotta money from thirty seven commercial. Could hey sony and microsoft. Ps five xbox shortages due to the semi conductor sorties. So if you are waiting on your console you might be waiting awhile and everybody boy nasty. I'm sure he got his already admitted to morning and ask him. But i forgot but i'm sure he already got his. He don't play and so it turns out that the shortage of so bad. That even my boy buck. Nash doesn't even have his yet. So this shortage must be really crucial. You know what i mean. Google this is big news. El salvador officially has become the first country to adopt bitcoin as their legal tender. So that's crazy. We're moving to the digital age now. Y'all digital currency is coming to every government so you better be ready. Start by goal. Put cash on your matches and what you do good. Oh good news in richmond. They took down the confederate robert e lee. That punk ass bitch. They took his statue down in richmond. Good good finally that shit out that damn city city is dirty and racists enough to clean shit up. It's been getting better though. I love you. Richmond been going to richmond. Since i was a child. Let me some richmond. But it is dirty and it is racist and it is dangerous. So be mad. If you want you buddy all three or truth. I still love you. I still love you. Vcu great love great party schedule. Good good anyways. On the latest sports news novak djokovic trying to win the counter grand slam this year. The only major title that novak djokovic failed to earn this year in the twenty twenty one calendar year was the olympic gold medal but he begins his. Us open campaign to go. We're only one man and two women in the open. Air have gone before jovovich has won. The australian french are wimbledon. This year he would join rod labor from nineteen sixty nine as the second person to complete the calendar. Grand slam sweep in the open. Era as for women margaret court in one thousand nine hundred seventy and steffi graf in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight are the two women in the olympic in the open air to do so but steffi graf actually took home the olympic gold as well which is not called the grand slam but the golden slam so. She's the only one to do that. Which is pretty amazing if you think about it winning all four major titles in texas in one year end goal. That's pretty fucking amazing but anyways so we all know. They are three way. Tie him roger federer and rafael nidal. There are in a three way tie with twenty championships. Obviously this will break him away from the thai and he is younger still. Has i believe more career than the other two so it looks like at the end of the day. When all is said and done novak djokovic will probably be when it comes to at least title wise the greatest men's tennis player ever when it comes to titles wise again. I don't agree with that. I don't even think necessarily. He's better than federal adult per se. And i believe men's tennis back in the day was a lot harder. And so these three have had a lot weaker field to deal with and so that i believe that's how they were have now. Don't get me rock. Oh three great amazing. Three the greatest of all time and not going to debate that at. Aw but i'm saying they had a weaker. Feel when andre agassi played and pete sampras played rod labor played and so i believe that as good as they are none of the three of them would ever be my top tennis player of all time. I mean i don't necessarily know who that would be mad. Anyways i know rod labor will be there pete sampras would obviously be there obviously andre agassi. He was my favorite growing up homer. So i'll go there as well and you know these three will be in the conversation but we'll see what happens. He is again obviously probably longer career ahead of him so he probably will end up with the most when it's all said and done but records are made to be broken as always in going into the future. I'm sure that all of those records will be broken again and again and again. So unfortunately novak djokovic was unable to claim the calendar grand slam so we know. He missed out on the olympics gold but had he won the us open. After winning the australian the french and wimbledon he would have been a grand slam champion so he was unable to do it. He was by danny medvedev. Daddy medvedev alexander ziprecrui or. I can't really say his name anyway. They're coming up in the men's tennis world but yeah jovovich failed to win and so he actually got. It was straight-sets he got beat. Six four six four six four so he didn't even win set wasn't a really good showing for him. He will have to come back in january and try again so he is still tied with nidal and federer at twenty championships so in january he will start a quest to try to break that again in the australian open because as far as we know we don't know when federal or dollar either one of them are gonna come back right now. So alexander zephyr. If danny medvedev those are the two up and coming future stars on the men's side while on the women's side your future stars are going to be. Leyla fernandez and emma. Radical new radic canoe defeated fernandez in all teen women's final to become the first qualifier to ever win a grand slam title. So an altea. I believe the last one was back in the nineties. Been a while since teens were in the final show. That was pretty crazy So a good weekend for tennis overall. A lot of new young stars coming out the woodworks so the future looks bright in the tennis world as the old guard seems to be. Kind of moving. On right serena williams rodger federer nadal djokovic which venus. They're all starting to move on their about at the end of their careers right now. So now you have these younger stars including no also can whenever she comes back to but yeah younger stars. That look really good so good for tennis in the future. Could google liberally switching to soccer these three causing a whole lot of news to happen with transfers this year possible transfers all of that good stuff so let's go ahead and cover. All of the movement that has occurred. The first move was messy. He joined ps g or paris. Saint germain on a two year contract leaving barcelona the six time ballo door and the deal will be worth twenty five mil a yeah while. Cristiano rinaldo left who've entities to transfer to his former club that he actually started with way back in the day and the premier league manchester united. So there was a battle between the united in city. Manchester united you mentioned city and so apparently some of the former vets told renaldo. You know you're going to ruin your legacy with united if you join city and so he ended up going back to united which it does make sense. That is true. Little bidding war didn't last very long. Rinaldo signed a two year deal with manchester united and it is expected that they are going to return to essentially as club so he will return again to where he started in his first stint. He scored one hundred eighteen goals and went to champions league and three straight premier leagues before leaving to real madrid. And he's far from done. He's going to have an impact. Actually there was a highlight of earlier. Today they had a game he just scored. A goal helped him win. So he's gonna have an impact. He's still a great player. Messy may be the best player in the world and babe's up there but rinaldo stir there to sit on frano rinaldo. Don't think he's done just because he's a little older. He's still got them skills so he should still have a huge impact just like messy. His deal is worth seventeen. Point seven million nine point four added incentives that is a good twenty seven point one million for two years which comes out to thirteen point. Five five mil a year so less than messy. That's seventeen point seven per year which could be then he'd be making more than messy so i don't actually know it doesn't actually specify here but Anyway and so what about imbaba. He was actually proposed to go to real madrid but ended up that the spanish club never got a call back from. Es gps she did not respond to that final offer which makes sense. Because why wouldn't you have super team with imbaba and messy and neymar and romo's you might as well have a little super team of your own shit. That's a bomb ass team right there anyways. Even though they had bid on them two hundred and twelve million they said nope and so he is going to stay exactly where he is he could be the highest pay player in the in the world when it's all said and done the rubers are he's offered forty five million a year which would obviously be twenty more million a year then messy so we'll see if he would refuse or not. These three making bags are top of bag on top of bag so real madrid has said that they can try to sign imbaba in holland next summer but right now at ps g. They're going to have a really good team there with messy and imbaba for one year. So i'm really excited to watch. That soccer is coming up with a lot of good young players as well. So soccer's on the rise just like tennis could could locally so finally. Yeah we're in this off with a little bit of some boxin new. So the jake paul tyron rom willie fight. Was this weekend. I watched shit emma boy. Jeez house g. Thank you for having me over with the crew. That was a good time. Could go locally or gear and the rest of the crew here at the so bro. The so bro junkies my dudes and gals as well. Good anyway. shout out to we. Watch honestly i mean. The thing was tired. Just didn't know any punches. A didn't look good that you're not doing punches the whole entire time because the only reason jake paul one was because he was actually throwing the majority of the punches tyron woodley was backing him down walking them down a lot for the first three or four rows. You just wasn't throwing punches. He was planned to defensive like he was floyd mayweather. But you're not mayweather and you can't win like that you know they're gonna give jake paul decision because he's the one bringing in all the money so you got to be the aggressive one anyways i'm not gonna take clever deeds shine. He'll make sure he gets his. He's gonna come back and give his review on this whole issue. And i'm sure that it's going to be a a doozy some sure you all look forward to that but i did want to say that obviously me. If he were to throw more he might have had a better chance to win the split decision. I didn't even understand that much. I wanted would lead away now. He didn't know enough to even get a split decision so anyways. Somebody's gotta stop this new now. I will give paul props. I'm not much of a paul brothers fan. But our resident combat sports insider cluber. Dr correspondent actually sent me actually sent me a message that it's shown that paul actually paid all the fighters on the car that that he could agree to pay with a to pay two extra money as bonuses for their fights out of his own pocket so he took a million of his own dollars and split it up between all the rest of the fighters on the car that he agreed to to pay. So that's you know as much as i don't like to the to do i think they're acting their antics are i think they're antics are stupid. I think they're cocky. I think they just you know the reality but you know that's a very nice gesture that is you gotta gotta commend him for such such type of gesture anyways. Maybe if he was just like that regular time everybody would like them. But you know. I guess you gotta play deville into right. You got to play to heal and you know how we like to end things here on the ball in blue. It's podcast. excuse me. I tried to go too long. I messed up omar's epilogue so yes. Thank you for another week. Family another week has gone by another beautiful beautiful week before i depart for this week Next week we'll be part partly me and then partly my interview with our moby insider. Mike we so we're going to talk a little bit of the mlb season and then a little bit of the postseason preview. But then you also get me for the first the first half of the second half of it depending how i set it up. Neal is to say before. I let you all go. I would be remiss if i did not honor the twenty twenty one naismith. Nba hall of fame class. Now i know you're thinking wait a second. Didn't you just congratulate kevin garnett. Kobe bryant and tim duncan a few months ago. Yes yes you would not be wrong. That was four months ago. I said the same thing to myself. I was like wait a second. Didn't we just have this and it was. It was four months ago but that was the pandemic delayed twenty twenty class so now they're doing the twenty twenty one class just they just did this weekend so who was in this big class. Sixteen people in this class like huge huge class. So give me a moment. But i'm gonna go through everybody and honor them as they should be honored especially a couple people that play for my beloved boston celtics. You know who were talking about first and foremost the hall of famer as a player already and legend and now a hall of famer as a coach just a basketball genius of basketball legend. civil rights. legend changed the world. Just being the type of person that he is. I really hope. I told my bucket list to meet bill russell. One day. i really hope to meet him and have a talk with him. He seems like an amazing amazing man. Human person Wow just someone you would want to be like someone you would want to emulate anyways so shout out to him. Obviously he's going and he was the first. Nba first black head coach when read back. Put him in as a player. Coach for the celtics So now he's in as a player coach and all the other celtics player to go in my man the truth paul pierce you know it. My second favorite celtic ever after the after the legend larry. But yeah paul. Pierce went in this weekend as well. And don't think he was not coming with that pettiness. 'cause he named off all nine teams passed on him since he went number. Ten to our to the celtics and so you better believe he called them all out and and talk to talk some smack to them. All and it was hilarious. You know. Paul peirce as petty. I love it. I love every minute of it. Be petty paul. Let them know. 'cause why because you truth killing you'll call detroit. You don't don't let these haters get on you paul. Don't let these haters get on you. Baby you are no you. You're a top five celtic player of all time which means that you are one of the greatest basketball players. Well time and i love you. Congratulations to the truth. Baby yes yes. Yes so congratulations to the celtics. Having people go in this year who else would him. Lauren jackson wnba mvp and fortunately. She was locked down in australia so she had to do over video but she was there who else j. right villanova coach. Jay wright defensive star install worked. Ben wallace who played for the pistons man. He was a great defender two time. Nba champion chris. Bosh longtime portland and sacramento coach. Rick edelman washington and sacramento. All-star and michigan fab five member. Chris webber shot up chris. Dc and two time olympic gold medalist yolanda griffith also included from veteran committees where the wnba president val ackerman longtime coach cotton fitzsimmons. I like that name. A good name scouting pioneer howard. Garfinkel were all inducted as contributors clarence fats jenkins ins. I like that name. A good name. Shout out was picked by the early african american. Pioneers committee shout out. Toni kukoc tab by the international committee. Shot up bob. Bob dandridge voted in by the veterans committee and shot up pearl. More voted in by the women's veterans committee. So congratulations to all sixteen of you. I will leave you off with a quote about bill russell. Brock obama considers bill russell's greatest role to be what he accomplished in the civil rights movement of the sixties and so he said bill russell perhaps more than anyone else knows what it takes to win and what it takes to lead as tall as bill. Russell stands his example and his legacy rise far far higher on that note. Thank you for tuning in my friends. Make sure to support shah.

Just unfortunately we had guys that assailed at their level. When i came in as just houston defor. So you know I waited my tab and Thing god finally happened for back at it again. Another episode of arrowhead pride presents show. Mp pk bk's in the building certes in the building He sounds like hails. But he's gonna fight through all right now We do this each and every friday it drops and became. Get right to a man. I'm i'm i'm nervous. I'm nervous and i'm concerned. And i got some time to think about it and i am. Maybe the only person who covers the talks about the chiefs. That's in this lane. I think right now after thinking about it. It's a mistake. It's a mistake. What they're doing with chris jones and this defensive in experiment. They're trying to go with. I think that is a mistake. I am now officially against this. Move of moving. Chris jones to the outside and some of the things we've been hearing this week about melvin ingram as a potential look of the x. Charger i think you need to go ahead and really really take a look at that and see if if if you can make that deal work because i think one frank clark has shown us you can't trust him you can't trust right. He's already going to miss some games. And he is already flat out showed. You can't trusting. But even bigger i think yet gives you an insurance policy to feel comfortable about kicking. Chris jones back inside where he's dominant. I don't i thought about it a bit more. And i think this is a mistake. Moving him out to an area words. Further from the quarterback his speed and his athleticism for size doesn't play as well. And i think many times he's going to be going up against the team's best offense of lineman so i staked a claim right now on. What is it july ninth. That chris jones to the outside is an absolute mistake. See i disagree with you on this. I still think it's perfectly acceptable. Move because inside. I think you're totally fine. With a rotation of tur- sean. Warton jarran reed and eric nadi especially on early downs. That's a perfectly acceptable interior rotation you add in colin sanders if he takes a little bit of a step this year. That's pretty deep actually promote teams. And then you add in. Chris jones who maybe he's an a plus inside and he's a be outside. Will that be that. He gives you outside while frank clark is out is probably going to be your best defensive end and you need somebody. That is going to provide an edge rush. Maybe it doesn't work. That's totally in play. Ron you might be right when we get to. September twenty six chiefs are playing the la chargers and we're going into that game. We might be saying to ourselves. Man i don't know this might have been a mistake. We we might be looking back at you. Sang on july ninth. That this was going to be a problem in it is but i think you've gotta try it. I think you've got to see what it looks like right now. We know chris jones is dominant inside. We know what he can do in their this. The defense is the the same. The same scheme ain't change this year. Steve spagnolo has been doing what he's doing for fifteen twenty years now. So what's the harm in triumph. This out what's the harm in finding out. Okay chris jones b a b plus maybe even an a minus on the outside and if he is that on the outside. What kind of value does that that. Half whereas given the chiefs roster construction right now especially while frank clark is out. I think it's a worthwhile experiment even if it proves faulty in a dozen end up working three weeks into this thing see. I don't like what you said off the time you said. Have a fine a fine group on the inside that they can go under. Sold them dared. Not he's probably gonna get paid like thirty million dollars next offseason. Jarran reed is a highly sought after free. Agent that the chiefs railroads bring in because they're a good team and he wants to get paid after the there'd be good on the interior. Now you said fine so almost stick with it became. I'll won't find. I don't won't fine. When i know i got great like i know. I have great and listen. Many people and we'll i'm sure discuss all seasons. Some people think that we're about to see the demise of the chiefs offense and they're not going to be high-powered because tinder foot sammy. Watkins isn't around and they don't have enough receivers. I'm sure this is literally. Nobody's saying that nobody got cornell town. It'll be fun to say. They need a drag any receiver off the street to come in. Because maybe they're not gonna this chiefs offense antonio. Calloway breakout season coming steal. This offense still is going to present a point where you just need to get a couple stops. You just need to have a guy and make some plays and chris jones from the inside is a guy that makes those plays and i know he makes them. I know he's got that. I know he could do that. And what. I move him outside. I may be playing with fire of of having issues with both with both outside. And inside. And i'm now i'm not getting anything from it. There is a difference to me when he's going to get guards and centers. That aren't as as good as a left tackle or right tackle that he's going up because i'm not saying chris jones can't get those guys to say it's different from the outside. As opposed to where he is just unique with his speed and his athleticism right there at. I know he could do that. I know i'm not fine. I thought i think there's a chance for you to move him on the outside and you'll be fine as you said on the interior and then just be fine as well on the outside. You know what the hell is that. No keep his ass where he could be dominated on the inside it. Let's bring out. Some veterans like melvin negro or olivier vernon or somewhere like that. So i mean. I understand right now. I'd be if i'm looking at mike dana at taco charles charlton down. The pipes is my outside guys. Yeah i'm a little nervous about that. Go make a move so you don't have to sacrifice your great player where he is to move him on the outside. I think what you're saying is totally fair. The place where. I think i would just disagree. Is that like. I think what you have in. The interior is more than fine. And i made the mistake of saying the word find. That's on me. I no issues with them going out. And signing by the way bringing in. Melvin ingram or olivier vernon. Those guys can help you like whether chris jones on the interior on the outside wherever he ends up being. You still need help right now. A defense event. And i think that's totally fair to say that I think what they're doing is more about the run than a pass. I think the chiefs have noticed that their run defense flat out has stunk for the last like three four five years. Now in if you're going to get better there at the best way to do. That is by moving chris jones to the outside having jarran reed and derek nadi playing in the interior on running downs. Like first and ten second three those sorts of downs. You're gonna see chris jones. that's when he's going to be playing outside. That's also when you're going to be seeing anthony. Hitchens and mick bolton on the field. I think they're just going bigger. They wanna get more bulk out there to be able to prevent teams from running all over them. Which has been a huge huge issue for many years now and i think that's the biggest thing i think on passing downs third and seven Second fifteen those sorts of situations. I think you're gonna see chris. Jones bump back inside because they know that's where he's at his best when it comes to his pass rush presence. I don't expect to see him out there a whole lot on those situations. I think it's going to be very specific in the way that they utilize them. And i think they're gonna utilize them as a weapon similar to what you see them. Offensively utilizing mccoll hardman. Wear a one time. He's going to be in the slot. Maybe he lines up in the backfield and then ends up. Kinda motioning out. Does that that orbit motion like you're going to see him all over the place. I think that's gonna be what they do with chris jones on the defensive line and i think it's perfectly valid to be concerned about. Christians are moving outside. I have questions about whether or not. He is truly athletic. Enough to like ben the edge and go up against some of those best tackles in the nfl. But adding melvin. Ingram doesn't change the situation in any way. You're you're still expecting frank clark to likely be suspended in some way so even if it's for the first four games of the season or whatever you're probably going to see him bounce outside a little bit and i just kind of to see what happens. It's early in the years. So i want to experiment. I want them to play round because their pass rush was a problem last year. It was an issue. So they're run. Defense has been issued for several years. But let's not act. Like last year with chris jones on the interior he went for like twenty sacks or something like that they had issues getting pressure. And that wasn't chris jones fault. That was frank clark's fault and they still haven't addressed that. They're still banking on frank clark being productive and hopefully they do bring in veteran guy but i wanna see how that all fits together at maybe it's taco charlton. I don't know but they still have plenty of question. Marks there no. I'm not saying. They don't have question marks. But i mean if you bring in a guy. A veteran like me melvin. Ingram is the one that has been talked about the most cheap circles. I think it definitely changes it. I mean you. You have a veteran. I think a guy out there that you trust that can play that role out there right. Now you're sitting here with taco charlton and mike dana. Like i mean right now like there is no. You can't feel great about that. And i feel like a bit of that makes you feel forced to kick him outside. I think that was a really nice point that you may be k. About this is about the run but this ninety four anymore. So what they're gonna do. They see those off those four linemen out there and they see oh derek. Nadi in june read and chris jones on the outside. But they're gonna throw they're gonna to teams are going to throw mega. They're going to change the way as you said. I believe you all said that that. That kid is the top three quarterback and all of the league doesn't herbert heston herbert for the chargers whenever they play him talking about. Because you referenced. Top three quarterback. That's not on the chiefs atop two quarterback in the league. You guys believe is better than aaron rodgers right now flow herbert justin herbert justin herbert. He gets it games and he sees that front. They're going to throw justin gobert. Yeah they're gonna throw. And i don't believe that they believe that. I do not believe that they just want to say that before. People get confused. Show that just in herbert's atop to quarterback. I don't believe that. But he said he was better have been mahomes but they're but they're but they're gonna throw teams are going to to throw against those fronts. And so like i don't think i don't think the chiefs are going to be able to dictate like all right. Yeah these and unless they really get them in obvious third down situations i think teams are going to throw whenever they see that front against against the chiefs and i just i thought about it and i understand the thought of all right. Let's let's play around with it may chris. Jones is really into what he wants to do it and he wants to play on the outside. Put now that dude is great right there. That dude is great on the inside. And i know he didn't have twenty six last year. But but that's that's where he can be dominant. I just i i don't want to. I don't wanna just hurt two spots. And i think there is a real potential would do in that with chris jones and moving them on the outside you might i just. I continue to think that. Mike my kind of final assessment of the situation as we are here on july ninth. I don't think it hurts anything to try it for a few weeks in the regular season if it fails if you get into mid october and you're seeing what you're talking about right now we're on and teams are throwing on you on those running downs and you're not able to dictate anything and you're losing out on pass rush because you don't have chris jones out there honestly right around the time when frank clark. It's back whenever that may be if there is a suspension. That's involved with this. I would guess if there's suspension it's probably going to be four ish weeks that's right around the same time when you would probably put it into this experiment if it goes poorly. So now you've got frank clark. Coming back he's going to be on the outside in the you naturally move chris jones back in so if that means against cleveland. Baltimore the chargers and philly. You don't have maybe you've got eighty percent of what would be your normally pass rush. I can live with that because all that matters this year is what takes place in the postseason and of chris jones early on this year if it does go well and that's the thing we're we also need to leave. Open the possibility that this works it finding out the first four weeks is worthy of Experimenting with that. I guess maybe i. Maybe i'm not looking at this point like you all see how this how this can be great like a like. You can see like at the best of what. Chris jones if he were playing on the outside like. What is the ceiling that you see from him so it would be a role similar to what you saw last year in houston with. Jj watt or what you've seen over the last few years frankly with Jj watt where. He's moving inside. He's moving outside depending painting on what the matchup is like. Maybe there's a game where you've got a dominant tack on both sides and you don't see him lined up outside at all so in that game he's going to be an interior pass rusher and you're just going to try to create havoc that way and then you go into the next game. Maybe it's against philadelphia and they've got some weaknesses on the outside. Well let's take advantage of that if we've got a bad offensive tackle here with one of our best pass rushers against him so in pass rushing situations in that game. Maybe you more chris jones lined up outside so i i think it's something were you use him as basically a defensive line weapon The way that you would utilize oftens of players as weapons depending on what their skill set is. When i said earlier. I had questions about his athleticism. It's i think that chris jones is incredibly athletic. I don't know if chris jones is as athletic as aaron. Donald or prime. Jj watt when jj was going out getting eighteen to twenty sacks. every year. like coming. chris. Chris jones his his just not done that but he's never been asked to do that now. Even if this blows up in their face. I still want to see them. Try it. I still wanna see what it looks like. It's in the first month of the season. What's it matter week one against the browns that offensive line. I bet the chiefs are going to have issues getting pressure. What it does matter is and we've talked about this. There's one verse round by there's only one by and all these games are critical. And we're talking about the playoffs and if you if you lose a game or lose potential by opportunity because you're fooling around with a let's experiment. Let's try some stuff with chris jones and you lose a game that way. You're like damn i you know i. I wish that was different. That's that's my thing is man this this is this is still the. Nfl were all of these games matter and that one first round by is still a very critical thing and i think it was a big a big part of why. But she's got to move on to the super bowl the last couple of years so that that to me all these games count. That's why. I just think man just putting an experiment on things. Early is is a dangerous place to go. Yeah i think that's fair. I wouldn't punt on it. I guess the reason as i. I just think i am looking at this. As he's gonna spend like forty to fifty percent of his time on the edge anyways so even if they do go down this path out of the seventy percent of the snaps that he's already going to be playing because he's not out there for one hundred percent of the snaps honestly that's even a little bit high. Maybe it's closer to sixty percent of the snap city typically place less than half of those will be on the edge over the course of a game. It's something like thirty percent of your defensive snaps. Where chris jones it can be playing outside. I just don't know that that's going to be. What determines whether or not this team wins or loses a number of games. I think he can provide some value out there. And i don't think there's a ton of downside as long as you do it the right way and i trust this. I think the biggest thing. Ron is i trust this defense of staff and i wasn't. I couldn't have said that three or four years ago but i do trust these this defense of sap that's in place to be able to get the most out of their players when they're on the field. Yeah i know. I'm lou strange. This is hit me when i just looked out of the core. My you think. Chris jones is an applebees or tilles guy. You think if it came down to it. It's chris jones. Going applebee's are chili's. I feel like he'd be the southwest girls at chili's no i feel like he's a two for one at applebee's he's not a two for twenty guy. No chance inhale easy. He'll go he'll go crush four entrees by himself but i just feel like he's baby back ribs. I got a hard time. Respecting people whose choose choosen applebee's over tilles. I always just delightful chilly. Salat i think chile is obviously at the top of it now. I could see. There's some people i could see rank in. I think he would. He would choose. Applebee's over over tilles there's lost rank and i. I don't think he's with us anymore. I know it. But that's another because he went applebee's as a character flaw. Austin rider is a applebee's guy. But no i don't i don't trust folks that go there i mean it is it is. There is a clear divide in difference between the two home. Your you're sleeping. On the case of dea burger. I haven't been applebee's in years dollar margaritas or something. Now too yeah. They're trying to a certain day of the week. You can get like those those cheap plastic margaritas cups and just slam like fifteen of them. Because there's no alcohol. I like i see. I see chris jones coming in. I think he gets the chilly case. Oh dip and. I think he gets the honey barbecue chicken christopher's like i feel like he may get a couple of orders. He's getting ribs. I think he's getting ribs at chili's now see i don't think no. He's a kansas city. He's not getting ribs. I think he gets rid regardless regardless. He's this guy just gets ribs. Don't worry goes trish this. He's pulling up to joe's and he's like i'm going to get ribs here. He goes to chili's you get rid. They're getting ribs and anywhere he goes. Maybe i'm speaking of my order. But he christopher's and he's getting extra ranch and he's getting getting big ass margarita but no cost like one hundred pounds. Since the last time. I saw him in person in. He still speaks the same way about. Do man i do right i i do like i mean. That's my order at chili's just to be honest with you. The could have known that when he lived in kansas city we went to chile's a lot and he got he got the unlimited soup and salad and he. They got that avocado that avocado ranch. That chile's good.

And i found my dream couch from aden home. Thanks to a personalized out on instagram. So summer of two thousand eighteen. I moved from. La to new york super excited to start my new york dreams and then the following spring covert hit and everything went downhill and so i- returned to my family home thinking now it would be for two weeks and it turned into months. I just so desperately want to give back to having an adult life having my adult life. So i was growing instagram looking for inspiration for the perfect pieces for my dream new york apartment and then i came across an ad for in home as a sofa that i really liked so i clicked on the ad to learn more and i really appreciated that. It came from the small business that focused on local artisans in north carolina searching for and finding pieces like this has really made me so excited to get back to new york. So i'm really glad. I came across this out on instagram and i can already imagine myself on this couch in my new apartment. Good ideas deserve to be found. Personalize ads help you find them. Discover the next good idea and support. Small businesses on facebook and instagram visit facebook dot com slash support. Small business to learn more all right k. inserted all right. I wanna do the game. It's a brand new game. It is sweeping the nation. Right now and i won't do it every week. Right here on arrowhead pry presents show. Nbk on the. I'm gonna do it every week. The game that's sweeping the nation. Everybody can play. It's called certified or imposter. I don't know. I have to say it like that. But i'm saying that that we certified or imposter. I'm on pick a player. A pick a player for the chiefs. And i want to figure out at this guy is the real deal. Is he certified or is he an imposter into real player. We send a few more times in different ways. Certified and pasta. Is that makes you feel better. That was gonna use that one. That was the worst one. You're not gonna use that when our here's here's the first player on the first ever game that sweeping the nation certified imposter legit serious. Need the jerry is need. i'll step in. Because they are trying to make him a number one corner. I would have to say right now. He's an imposter. I list right now. I i like his skills. I think he's got a chance to be a starting a starting caliber consistent corner. Hey maybe even an outside shot at a pro bowl down the line. We'll see how it goes but right now on a championship level team right now and i know that's different because patrick mahomes kind of makes it easier for you to be a championship level. Tibo defense as we've seen him win a championship with rashad. Brillon chavez ward playing corner in rashad fitness your third. But let's darius need to me right now because they're asking him to try to be there lead corner. I'm going to say he's an imposter. But i'm right but before. Bk most undoubtedly disagrees with that. Can i clarify something here. Is it certified or impostor because you called him a certified imposter at the beginning as if he's worse than a regular imposter. He's a certified imposter certified or he's imposter. Patrick mahomes is certified. He's not an impostor we don't ever have to do him. He's a imposter. He's also certified abbass justin herber. It would definitely be certified. Okay yes i'll give him certified but yes i'm going. Snead is an impostor right now because they're trying to make him a number one corner and that that i i don't i think that's a little too much only i well. That's the most ridiculous thing. I've heard today He's he's clearly certified. I yes in fact so much so that he might be your second best pass rusher early in the season like forgive being a stud corner. He had last year in nine regular season games and three playoff games. he finished those with four sacks. he had five quarterback hits Three interceptions he had multiple tackles for the dude. Was behind the line of scrimmage at all times on top of clearly being their best corner and being such a good corner that if he played all sixteen games. I think you could have made a case. That he was on the verge of potentially making proble. If this team has a first time pro bowler next year. It would not surprise me to see luxurious need in that role. He's so good that the question is not is he your number one corner. The question is where is he more valuable. Is he better to use in the slot or is he better to use outside. And that's what determines who else enters the lineup for the chiefs now if you've got questions about their other corners. I'm not here to argue with you about that. I've got questions about various war. I have no idea who the number three quarterback on the team is right now behind them. I'm guessing it's the andre baker but if they decide to put legit area snead Outside maybe it'll sharpen. I think that's a totally valid question. And if you ask me on any of those dudes as of today. They're all imposters is being number two corners but legit serious need. I think a certified not only as being a good player but as being a legit number one corner in the nfl much less for the chiefs right now right now. He's you feel you to feel the jeev redeem that he was on the field for the chiefs last year. I felt confident. He was going into lockdown his side of the field every single game that he was in there and he was not out there. I did not have confidence. And whoever the chiefs corner that was filling in. I'm not there yet not locked down. Oh hill no. I like says being locked down quarterback as you can be in twenty twenty one because those guys don't really exist anymore like to me. I'm thinking to myself. Like do i feel like all right man. I leave him over there with keenan allen and i feel pretty good about that match up. I'm just looking at guys in the division. And i'm like who i don't like i'm not there yet i like. I said i love that. The skill set right if we're talking about an nfl corner. I would not say imposter. I'm saying that. Regards to try to like putting the pressure on this kid. That all right. This is going to be our top guys. We don't feel like we need to make a move at corner because especially or at least a better corner because snead is a number one level corner now. Would i be surprised off my ass if he did if he made the pro bowl. Kinda in the pro bowl is a deal. Where like first time guys like you gotta and less unless you get eight or nine interceptions or something you got like you might like the last one. We we've seen that marcus. Peters got like eight or nine interceptions as a rookie and made and made the pro bowl. Second team all pro. But i i. I don't know if i'm there with him yet. I don't know that. I feel just straight up comfortable with all right. This is because when i think of number one corner became so i think this is a guy that i don't have to all the time. Feel like i gotta have helped with with the other teams best receiver. I don't feel like. I gotta have about their some portions of the game where i can just him by himself with who. He's covering and not give. I don't feel that way with him. And i feel like there's kind of pressure being put their on him to be the number one corner and i hope you all right. I don't i like. I said i love his skill set in the things he could do. You could see real potential. I just don't know if he's ready in that spot yet right now so. I guess the way that i would respond is like easy. Davis white of the buffalo bills nosy. Jalen ramsey is gyro alexander no those dudes are like legit top of the line blue chip talents outside corners. Right izzy. marcus peters. He different marcus peters. I think he's a better cover guy in. Don't don't misinterpret what i'm saying here. I marcus as a playmaker that turns the ball over. Its yeah yeah. I feel more confident that a greater percentage of the time you will see luxurious need in good coverage on the guy that he is defending than i did with marcus peters now marcus. Peters was a very specific skill set that i don't think anybody else in the league has and i love marcus. Peters they're just so different it's hard to compare the two but something that is super valuable about the way that luxurious need plays. He played safety and corner in college so he has the ability to play deep. He can play in the slot. He can play outside and i know sometimes people here the idea of a slot corner and they're like oh well that's less valuable the than outside in today's game. It's not if you will up. Where trap not travis kelsey. Although he does wear tyreek hill lines up the majority of the time it's in the slot teams want to get their best players their best playmakers into the slot. So that way they can utilize those matchups because a lot of these guys that we mentioned are outside corner. James bradbury for the giants. He's playing outside all day long. Jalen ramsey is mostly gonna play outside. Legitimate need is not that way. If you've got a match up where like you said you've got somebody that's coming into. Kc and they play a majority of the time in the slot. You can just put luxurious need in the slot. That game kind of likely. We're talking about with you for like you week one. When odell beckham comes in the town you feel pretty good about. I'm not saying no one's it's hard to find shutdown gut but you feel pretty good about him following odell beckham around like you'll ode l. or jarvis. Whoever you prefer. I think i might put him on jarvis just because i think he's going to get more of the targets but yeah yeah i sorta i'm not. I'm not at that point yet. Well and the reason. I also believe that he is certified and i don't know if he's a legitimate lockdown corner just yet in the nfl but similar to a guy. You guys already brought up. Marcus peters i think that jerry is just a playmaker like i mart. He's not the same. Kind of playmaker. That marcus peters is. 'cause marcus peters is out here playing corner like he's had reader something like he's just going for picks all the time and he's just going for the turnovers and the flash plays and stuff like that. I think legit area need is a guy who can be a potential lockdown guy. but he's incredible blitzing like we saw him have a huge huge impact there. We don't generally see corners in the modern day. Nfl have a huge impact is a blitzer on a regular basis and they continued to have him do that like became mentioned. He can move in the site. He can go outside playing in the slot in the modern day. Nfl is more difficult in my opinion than playing outside. Because you have when you're on the outside as an outside corner in the reason bradberry guys like that or so. Incredible at it you can use. The sideline is an extra man basically to kind of box out your wide receiver in the slot. You have to play all directions of the field. I think it's a much more difficult position to play in the modern day. Nfl and luxurious need proof that he could do that exceptionally well last year. To there's no reason to believe that he can't be a one of the five best players on this roster in my opinion like i in the early going of season five best players on the us. Yeah we got out of our out ahead of our skis a little bit there. Five best players know where we're going gonna pull the car over. I want you to start. I want you to start naming who. Who mounds kelsey. Tyreek hill tired matthew. Chris johns okay. Maybe seven they seven best players. What about seuss you got you got. You got him floating. I said calcium. Today i i said suit i'm talking about orlando brown. The left tackle. You gotta call calcium to. I said saturday daddy isn't his daddy cub. In and zeus brown. I thought this what they called it. How maybe they call him that to. I don't know it might be as twitter. Handle man. I just i was i was going in. I just said it. But yeah like seventy eight seventy perfectly fine with that. Okay all right. He plays a definitely plays an important like right now. You don't have hard. I am on frank. Clark like i like i. I can't put him over. Frank right now like i don't feel comfortable doing that. He he was better last year. The frank clark. He was a better football player last year for the chiefs. And frankly i wouldn't. Frank was was not great. I'm just saying as we start. The wrinkling had four more sax last year than luxurious new. As we start the impressive as we start this year though. I'm just saying for me like when. I talk about history and everything that's occurred. I am not sure that i would jump him over that yet. I i don't know man i. I hope that i am wrong. But but in terms of number one corner. Until i see other evidence for me right now thinking about a guy following somebody a guy. That's going to take that assignment. Every week to defined against odeal gets a keenan allen gets. I don't know who denver has but against against orleans. Good receiver jerry. Judy jerry judy. Caja hamlin noah. Fan offense loaded. Not but there's no. I i think i just not ready to go there yet with him. So i mean we'll we'll see. Hopefully i am wrong hopefully by week. Four or five this season. We're sitting there looking at a show. You is dead ass wrong about snead dead from. Here's my question as a follow up to this i. I'm really high on luxurious. Need so much. So that as we're thinking about this right now. Is there another corner other than marcus. Peters that you would take in the last five ten years from the chiefs that are better than luxurious neat. Am i missing somebody. I don't i mean they have struggled that position. If we're counting tire in a corner in this scenario then yeah. I would take him over tyrant i would take tyrant at corner over him. No i mean it's i mean we're looking at terrence mitchell's. That may be the next guy. I mean they. They didn't car was kinda had a little bit of time in air brandon flowers. I was going to say james hasty. I mean that was that was twenty years now. But that's i think he's better second best corner of the last decade. I mean that. And i feel pretty confident saying that. Now i mean. That's pretty impressive. It's not. I mean the the chiefs cornerback. Position has been absolutely pathetic. They they i mean i mean. I guess you could say impressive. Just start. start good defenses. Try it try it names of corners. I skin can't last. The last ten years is brandon car. Even fit in the last ten years barely shocks that he fits say that's been a minute like they. Who are they roll at. Terrance mitchell was on the other side else where they rolling out at steven nelson. Oh come on. Hansie steve member. My favorite landau dude. Sean smith was good yes johnson. That's his name. He was good for them. You saw the good cop. That's a good comper for how i feel about. Julius need i feel about jerry. Need how i felt in his prime about Sean smith and i always feel sean. Smith was a too. I thought he played up to a one with the chiefs. Yeah he has. I think he had the best years of his career with the chiefs. And that was when those were those. Bob sutton defenses. That were like actually decent and we're actually competitive every year instead of getting exploited by nfl. Offenses yeah i think he did play his best years still wouldn't know a one felt like he was a strong too. And that's that's just what i feel like. The kid is. The kid is right now. I feel like we're talking about baseball. How we talk about number. One pitchers versus aces. Yeah feel like. You're looking for aces. i'm talking about a strong number one starter like that. That's what i view these guys as are. they aces. No that's where you're getting into your jalen ramsey's and The top end talent. These guys i think are legit number one starters on a good team. Yeah mike. If we're talking about like that i think he's a to starter like he's a number to start right now. Yeah i think cow gibson that has potential. Better cal keeps. He's somebody who's got all scoured cows cinemas mizzou made or but if he's if he's a number two guy that you're not going to look at it as a number one headed into the year then he's shot brilliant and bershad bruin was perfectly fine for your secondary because that's what britain is viewed as in the nfl. I'll give you that. I i i'll give you that but still what bershad be really. I mean he was a guy that you didn't just leave alone on folks like you didn't just say are Rashad got hopkins. Let's just do it. I'd felt good about brillant and twenty nineteen last year. I felt like he took a little bit of a step back from the chiefs. But i thought in twenty nineteen like when you look back at that highlight reel of some of their biggest defensive plays in that season a vast majority of them involves chateaubriand. It's i. I'm just i'm higher on there. I also once again kind of to our initial topic here tonight ron. I feel better about their coaching staff. Like i just. I trust their coaches to get the most out of their corners. Maybe more so than any other spot on this roster because they've been so depleted at that position for so long that the fact that they've even been able to get competent. Cornerback play over. The last few years is nothing. Short of remarkable. Yeah all right. I guess we do have to to to do. Our annual or weekly conversation of the chiefs need help it receiver. Because i through this week. Certa his sent me. Oh man josh. Gordon ooh the chiefs to go. Look at josh. Gordon who cannot who cannot play who cannot stay on the field. I mean i talk about. You can't trust frank. Clark josh gordon just tells you right away. I'm not going to be able to stay on the field but you can sign me. And then i've seen i don't know about you sort of it. I've seen many people. Discuss the nicole harry the patriots Two thousand nineteen thank you. Who is who is requesting requesting trade. Many people talk about. Hey man maybe the chiefs should take a look at this. We are we serious about this guy who is been a bust right now in nicole hairy it with the patriots now granted. Some of that quarterback play in year. Two that he faced last last year with cam and brian. Hoyer isn't really the great thing to help you out with. But a guy who's been a bust eighty-six targets in the last two years since he's been in the league. And then josh gordon who who who just cannot stay on the field and hell. I don't even know how good he is anymore. Right now he. I mean he hasn't even played long enough to even know how good it's been a long time. Eight nine years since he led the nfl in receiving yards. I we are not in this desperation mode that it feels like every week. Please tell me why the chiefs need to go. Take a look at these two guys. Please sell me on this garbage certa all that you try to sell us on going out there and getting one of these guys josh. Gordon's your dude. Well yes. I love. Josh gordon He had a couple of catches with the patriots a couple years ago. He still got it all right. He had a catch with russell couple years ago in like week. Sixteen josh gordon's so got it baby. No yes obviously. There's question marks. Obviously there's flags but if he gets reinstated. I'm interested in taking a look at him because it doesn't cost you anything to bring him into camp in just cut him if he can't keep it together if you think yes. He's just not good at football anymore. He's out of shape. He's had just hasn't had the reps over the last several years to maintain the level of athleticism and play that you need to succeed in the modern day. Nfl but if we're talking about we want another camp body and we want to bring in another wide receiver and see what happens. I'd be very interested in bringing in josh gordon. Especially over nikial harry. I understand the kill. Harry is only twenty four years old but he is just not looked like a competent. Nfl wide receiver. The patriots haven't done a lot to help him out but he hasn't been very good in the. Nfl doesn't create separation in any way not interested. I wasn't really that interested in him as a prospect. I am on the josh. Gordon train because i wanna see as many weapons as possible with patrick mahomes. Maybe we believe fifth round wide receiver. Cornell pal is the answer or mccoll's finally going to take a huge step forward on the outside which is out of position for him. But i'd like to see. I'd like to go to training camp and see josh gordon practicing with the chiefs and see what that looks like. Yeah i'm out on josh gordon of you should be i one jock. Laurie hawkins seed. And i hope he latches on somewhere in his super successful. It has nothing but the best moving forward. I just don't think that's going to be chiefs. The chiefs have a bunch of lottery tickets and at this point in his career makes me sad to say this. But that's what josh gordon is. Mikhael harry stinks. Like he's just a bad football player. So there's no reason for the chiefs to be interested in him if the chiefs are gonna go free agency route again. I don't think this guy significantly improves you. From what you already have. But the only guy. That's available that i would be interested in is dede westbrook again. I don't think that's any sort of significant upgrade. He's basically until we antonio. Calloway and you have antonio calloway already on your roster so i think what they have right now is probably barring some sort of trade or a surprise cut after camp what they're going to have going into the season and that is a little bit concerning because what you're looking at right now as tyreek hill which is great but then mccoll hardman damarcus robinson cornell powell byron pringle and then probably one of marcus camp garrick deeter antonio calloway or daria shepherd. One of those guys probably going to be the final roster spot where the wide receivers that just doesn't inspire a ton of confidence from me. The only guy that i feel good about his tyreek hill and then everybody else is a massive question mark in when i read earlier. This week from nate taylor of the athletes and i quote from the voluntary wait workouts in the teams mandatory minicamp mccoll hardman appears to be in position to have a breakout season as he is expected to have the role previously held by sammy watkins. That's terrifying for me. I i don't think he's a guy that profiles to play in that role sammy. Watkins was a prototypical x. Wide receiver where he can line up. On the line of scrimmage and beat man press coverage that is the opposite of what mccall hardman profiles as in fact the only guy on the team. Maybe you got two of them. That can do that. I think is cornell powell and byron pringle and i don't think those guys are starting level wide receivers at least not right now so i. I don't think they have that guy on the roster today. Listen i. I think as upset before that is something that is being overblown using the words terrified a mike that that feels a pitch strong. That feels a bit strong to use. Sorta josh gordon. And i i hope he hooks up with chip and joanna gaines down in waco. And maybe they can you know do some kind of work with him. Maybe he can help build some houses and work at magnolia farms. I don't i don't particularly well. I think they can help people. I think he got a better chance to his life getting on track them. Come in and play in the national football league. So i'd i'd rather josh gordon. Get to that point but manages i. I just 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 mean he's had some good fantasy games. Man phil phil phil loved. His work ethic series. I was going to end the you would take to. Who are you taking. Zach paschal over on this this in everyone miss role. Are we talking about in the sammy. Watkins role. Yeah whatever row rio. Every receiver on the roster. Not named tyreek hill became. You can't be brandon. You can't be serious. You brandon zada the indianapolis colts paschal this that fellow. I'm trying to remember number fourteen. That guy yeah yeah. Imagine anthony million just going along with it now certa and miller. I'd love anthony miller. I feel like the bears have wasted his potential. I'd love to see anthony miller on the team. I'm telling you. Zach this a little farther than i'm willing to go. She had it. Don't have any. They don't have any depth of the position. It you no no no no okay you could say you could say some concern about some debt. But you're rolling zach paschal and you said you taking over everybody else. i know. i'm sorry. I can't get that i cannot wait to this season. Starts my new washed up. Muhammed's it would be great now. You're not being too nice veteran presence. That's what they need to do. They can go out there and give them fifty catches for seven hundred yards. And you don't think mccoll hardman or demarcus robinson. End that roller capable of doing it think they might be capable of doing it but i don't think it's going to be reliably so you saying that you think they can do it next year. One of them can't do that. I think he will have to. Because they're going to be peppered with targets. I do not think it is going to be efficient in. I do not think you're going to go into a weekend week out basis and say to yourself man. I'm so glad that mccoll hardman demarcus robinson our number two wide receiver agotic. You're ever going to say that ogden tate. There you go exactly yes. We're done just perfect perfect. That's a dream scenario head up. Cincinnati right now. I'm out right now. i'm out. I'm out i'm out. That's vk who's drinking that sorta. Who's just being himself. Who at least we found that he does at least draw the line somewhere. I thought for sure he just go with zek. Paschal with at least sorta has some space where he can draw the line. Right and imagine travis. Fog him on this team. He'd be so great that stretch for the eagles last year. They're running me up a wall right now. I'm out you guys can keep throwing these ridiculous wide receivers. I'm not even doing. I'm not even going to do. What about kiki maybe he. He's the same.

Will the Raiders Build Off MNF Win?

"Are you thinking about selling your car. Carmax makes it easy. Go to carmax dot com. Get a real offer. In as little as two minutes the offers good for seven days and carmax will buy your car. Even if you don't buy there's real offers real fast carmax the way. It should be jalen. After last night we game in vegas. We gotta go to game in vegas eighty flights and the hotel rooms mark game has got us. You saw brother charles woodson. They're starting to show that stuck to steal. I'm david jacoby. we are. Is it that we what they wong. You saw. The electric atmosphere the started with buffer announcing it was time and what a game it was from. Start to the very finish. And i will go through what happened. 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. Henry rugs divall more. They use him as a deep threat. I saw last year and i was waiting to say something. They need to get him more vall. But with that being said my bigger concern. Jacoby shout to the raiders. Were getting their first victory in front of their home face. Congratulations but i don't have high expectations. Put them this season. I do have high expectations. Put a ravens it then. All of a certain they lost. Jk dhabi's they lost hours. They lost marcus. Peters and not just watched him play football. and i'm grad. They drafted our guy. Who's been on the show. It was going to see sammy. Watkins go deep. I was great to see andrews tidy. Have some help. But lamar has to do too much doll. You know and i know it. They need him to lead the team in passing. They need them. The lead team in russia and that was happy to see tyson williams. Come in and see the bill. Touchdown and murray also had a touchdown but lamar had three. Total fumbles and lost to love is just too much responsibility at one man shoulder. The it seems like if he's not running the ball he's running the ball before he the ball and they do have all those weapons and one thing. I want to mention about the raiders which is very concerning is josh jacobs. Didn't look like josh jacobs. He's got that toe problem and he certainly didn't feel like himself last night. In the game. I think they targeted waller nineteen times should probably be about twenty five to him on tv. Obviously be the first option on every single play. Is that good that that fast. That strong. But mr rose i wanna talk to you about the last play of the game once again. That final plate is eight jones when they lined up. It was like that bunch trips to the left. I'll throw the ball throw the ball right now because they could get the kick back bob going to run the middle beginning to the hash that he likes and then they threw the ball. That was such a gutsy move in. John googlers criticized a lot. But that was a very very gutsy. Play call from gruden. And i want to salute him for that but usually when you blissed away the defense did you. Don't have the time to go deep that way. So i give credit also to derrick conquer standard in a pocket and making a big throw. Oh absolutely well played a game for us because you didn't really stay. The party's kind of running back for jumping on the back. Here and lay. That ball is perfect. One of those russell. Wilson moved shots that you love so much. What a what a game. And what a great way to cap off week one. There was really exciting throughout the one o'clock games are great. The four games are great. The night games great and then. We have this one on monday night but the number one game that people are going to discuss from week. One is the packers losing to the saints and james and matt leflore who we call the floor. The scotia had this to say about his team in looking forward to week to he said the following and i quote. I think this team's focused on now unfortunately sometimes in this league get humbled and certainly we got humbled like. I said it's about how we respond to that. And getting ready to play against a team i know is going to be really hungry. Coming in here. he's talking about your lines. Jalen rose we discussed whether they started the season. Great or poorly. There's going to be a lot of drama around this team. Because of aaron rodgers season how do you think that impacted this game and will impact their season moving forward. I wanna make sure. I give credit to the saints defense. I wanna make sure. I acknowledge sean. Payton as the quarterback whisperer who put jamesy listed in the dugout lash year on a minimum basically contract. Trotta him out there. Any threw five touchdown passes as efficiently as we've ever seen in on the other side. Aaron rodgers and davante adams they struggled mightily aaron rodgers like i told you he threw interception. There was like a punt. I was watching the game. I was about to run out there and try to get it like. He wasn't psychologically into it now. That doesn't mean he's not gonna have a gray season it doesn't mean that they're not gonna meet their goals but here's what it also means. He did the opposite of what jaanus did as an mvp level player and it does matter to the locker room and it does matter throughout the organization. Did before the season that. I told him that do that you told them not to do. That was signed an extension. So now coach bud understands that he's gonna be there. Chris middleton understands he's committed drew holiday knows he's committed but with the front office of green bay fractures. The relationship with aaron rodgers. You now have him not spitting off season in green bay because you messed it out when and the level player so now he shows up at the first press count. I got relitigate. Everything has happened with him and organization. He got to talk about what he's been doing all summer. And you're not just as locked in. It's human nature now that but kicking that they got this past week is going to have a focus going into this weekend and you. Her matt little floor michigan native. They're going against hungary this weekend. Division over detroit. Lions to get it together. Rogers go be onto. Well we all know what happens if aaron rodgers ends up on the ground because dan campbell made that clear before he even kosher game. Does that campbell on the way up to kneecap off. They are hungry because they're gonna be eating kneecaps against the packers in green bay jalen all season long. We've been celebrating the historic season of shohei otani and we gave him the al mvp months ago. Well guess what vlad junior just hit his forty fifth home run and now is ahead of otani in home runs. Could flat steel. The al mvp from our guy otani the legend. Willie horton number twenty. Three sinus bat for me vlad. Julia reminds me a lot of him. And like i told you. The key for him was transformed his body. That was the key and now all of a sudden you. I a triple a triple crown. The last player we see that mcgill carreira of my detroit tigers and he definitely won. Mvp how before day. Yes call strips of guy. He's me about your red sox. So i would say because his team is in a better position in the standings. Plus he's going for triple crown may even be able to edit out my favorite player in baseball the numbers here beeston's a with a rb he's an rbi away from a triple crown. He needs to get more. Rbi but however let's compare their pitching stats because we know who gene stats. Ninety two three point. Three six hundred. Thirty six ks than vlad guerrero so to me. There's absolutely no contest to al. Mvp should be. It is the man who contributes much more than absolutely the best player in baseball and the show in sports. We gotta make sure we give otani love. Even though his team is struggling because he's must see tv it is time for soft move or boss move jalen. the met gala was last night Neither of us were invited which has been some sort of oversight. I've moved recently the address. Speak for yourself russell. Wilson's wife ciara was in attendance. And let's take a look at her. get up. She wore like a seattle seahawks dress. Russell wilson jersey with a super bowl ring. Soft move or boss move dressing. Football jersey for the met. Gala is definitely a boss move. A lot of the athletes are saw russell westbrook steph curry and his wife look phenomenal. Here's well i'll say it's a boss move because it might be the last dance seattle. So she can't say she didn't represent to the fullest. You not me. She was where in new york city. The still have danny dies is the quarterback. Is that what you're doing calling him. Dating return jacobs journals so this is a boss move by sierra and not only does she look at standing rock in the super bowl championship ring. Boss move well you know. i'm always negative. Some negative on this one yongbyon theme. The theme was american independence. She does that on. Beam in my. You know one thing. My wife would never ever ever ever ever do dress like me. My wife would never rep for me as hard achieved right. I'll switching her man in a way in. Which would never watched the show. She's never seen are jalen. Rose would a million dollar prize motivate. Nba players to lose a little bit of their vacation. Would lebron james played a midseason tournament.

Pure seventeen and the seaport in new york city. Welcome back to jalen and jacoby jalen rose. What a week one. We had in the nfl but we are already looking forward to week to in the super bowl. Champion buccaneers have a game against their division rival. Atlanta falcons and. Tom brady posted something interesting. When you look at this post not much to it right but look at the time on the clock. Three twenty eight. Which was the score. Win tom brady came back. Beat the balconies. Jalen rose to think. He's trolling the falcons with this detail. In his post david jacoby wants taught us all. You can be mean if you're funny. This is extremely funny. Em bother way you do this where you feel like the team that you're playing is trash. Defending super bowl champion. If he thought that they was going to have some. Have boston ready for him this week. He wouldn't be trolling. And by the way. If beauty atlanta falcons. We're gonna talk about this all year. We love cockpits locale pets. But matt ryan matt ryan took chick doll. He's not mobile. never has been made. Ep is a future hall of famer. He looked washington week. one week. One so it'd be interesting to see what happens in week two well. That book nears defense is certainly out in the front seven. And they're going to give him some problems and tom brady. As you mentioned is confident and is being mean. And he's being funny by them. The three twenty background moving onto more quarterback news this time the washington football team we have an update on the hip. Injury of ryan fits magic. He will be out six to eight weeks which begs the question. Should they make a move at. Qb or stick with heineke. I think they played it on the entire time. I guess you try to take a flyer with nick foles if you could get him from. The bears says they have three quarterbacks with dot fields but who goes into a season at this point ryan fitzpatrick career and think he's going to have the ability to even last throughout the year met along the productivity to never lead a backup like that approach was flawed from the beginning. That approach was flaw. Yes sir i believe in heineke. I believe in heineke. Heineke took commits washing football team into the playoffs win. Toe to toe with the goat. With to-to-to it tom brady. They gave the bucks probably their most competitive game in the playoffs. And that was because batman heineke heinecke is going to get this team powered by the defense. Of course more wins than cam. Newton would or nick foles. Would i believe in heineke. Heineke i gotcha fan. Let me covy. We been brothers patil years. I wanna make sure that you heard something correct. They didn't say heineken. The first on the second day after plays the letters got enthusiastic. You ever komen's slushy ice on top on a summer day good on a summer day. Jalen rose there's more discussion about a potential mid season tournament in the national basketball association. And potentially there's a one million dollar purse not through the winning team but for every winning player on the winning team. Winning one million dollar purse convince nba stars to compete in a mid season tournament. Absolutely and i have this. I have a secret for everybody excluding nepotism. Obviously people that are successful are really competitive. They're really driven. Doesn't actually wild. They achieved what they're achieving in life. And part of that is competing when it matters the most for the most money and therefore now they'll be low management. Guess where they won't be happening with a chance to win this million dollars you remember. When the nba came with the play tournament people moaning groaning about high was a bad idea. Like i love. I love it now. Seven through twelve or whatever. Each conference is getting disgust. A breeze more tv and additional minding the assam. This reminded me of something. Cade in the pistons gonna win this million. We brought this bread. I'll tell you what time of the year that's going to be peaking be right time for us to be cruising into his rookie of the year campaign steward. They'll be as bodyguard off their bego. Be making threes like we get this bread. Kili haitong four core masses. That money's already in detroit jalen. I love your love for detroit. Sports teams but sometimes it's just so delusional and so irrational. You understand the words that are coming out of your mouth pissing tomorrow going to win anything and they're not going to the playoffs this year but they will develop a young that you mentioned movie troy basketball university of southern california fired. Their head coach clayton. Helton was let go from the two weeks into the season. Mr rose remember when lane keeping fired at the airport in september. They're making a habit out of this at sc. What do you think about them. Letting go of their head. Coach after a tough loss to stanford over the weekend. I think nationally. This isn't the job it used to be. Obviously is a prestigious school and it has so many amazing players. There's so many amazing compliments but not so many since pete carroll left in theory. But here's as you start to look at the landscape. Both people that may be discussed to replace him. James franklin for example shafter reggie bush's reggie bush out there. Oh yeah. Did you see reggie. Bush knew it to the sideline at one time. It took him behind his back. Bad man as did hazard back. Did he his records back. Anyway they're going to be talking about a lot of people to potentially replace hilton first off. I always acknowledged it with. Somebody didn't do a good job. The hill didn't do a good job to give them a four year. Deal at fire map the two weeks. That's a terrible higher by the school by the ada about whoever made the decision and james franklin shouldn't leave penn state that go to usc because in twenty twenty one is not a better job. It's just not a better job. Stay tune lane. Kiffin got fired at the airport. We all remember what happened star keys in and now we have health and getting fired after you just fire someone two weeks into the season. I'm not lining up to put myself in that position.

We also give the people what they want and part of that through. Podcast exclusive content for our favorite consumers of jalen and jacoby content. Our podcast listeners. That have been rocking minutes for ten years. Jalen rose. i'm gonna do something. That's going to shock. You mr rose. It's going to blow your mind. You know i go negative. You know i'm critical of people and russell. Westbrook came out and he went to the met gala last night and he put that picture of himself in new york city wearing a skirt along white skirt. And so you know me really well you would expect me to say it's a soft move and this and that we support the skirt. I rock with this skirt. Looks pretty good. Then i get older. I just care about being comfortable scourged comfortable little man kill lululemon needs to call the man killed every day. I support the skirt. What do you think about russell. Westbrook and what use off the last night. My favorite person. I saw rock and killed also one of my favorite media personalities. Roddy roddy piper pipers is so underrated so classic one of my favorite restless a great entertainer. Here's what i think about men dressing up like women and or wearing skirts. Don't give it's an acquired taste. That's what i think is not something i'm going to do is not my cup of tea but i'm not necessarily upset when people do things that i wouldn't necessarily do i would i would. I wouldn't put those stars in my head that he had his head of care about my haircut kind of care about my haircut. I wouldn't do that well you miguel. But here's what i do know times you do they. Strictly for fashion nostalgia are you. Are you old enough to remember the blonde streak. I put in here this year. Doing the finals remember took it out the same that he put it. In two thousand thousand thousand the half moon. Classic jalen rose classic. Look the mohawk. On christmas and we. That's two days you just reach into far now using reach too far too far. But that's my point. I like russ as it relates to be eclectic. What my fashion you saw. What i wore on draft day. What i got picked you agree and you saw what. I will draft day. Three j. lynn's got picked ula great drafting this year. Great this year thank you. I appreciate that. And so it's really the stage. And if i was going to go to the met gala is to decisions. Do i have to make 'em all wearing something that makes me suited in boot. It and i'm glad that people starting to say that now know that's a detroit thing for everybody picking up when i'm putting down by the way and the other thing is. Am i going to wear a costume and certain athletes for example. I cam newton was wearing costumes. Russell westbrook thus he's wearing costumes like he wore that for affect you know what i mean is so based on that. I always pushed the votes with passion entertainment. You see the renaissance man doing it every week so i can't be mad at it. Next year i'll be gala called nine eight five eight zero jalen until me suited and booted or costume. I'll zita next year. You're going to be a dip set versus locks the same way you were not invited not to show up and be like guys do when you are the one so let let me teach you guys a secret in life trotta all all of the things. That don't cost you anything. I'm going to jalen rose leadership academy when i'm finished with this show today show to wingstop who's going to be there to fee all of the three point. Oh plus students. From last year each of the students that have perfect attendance via and and within the first week school. So that'll be about fifty to fifty five percent of our scholars. Right hold on to nine. You can't get some wings. Couldn't a bar free high. It's not bad plus come home. I didn't know about this three point zero thing going. You're gonna give the kids. Lee wingstop know there's gonna lineup again wings. You gotta have it three point zero. We have come on behalf on the mediocre students like myself. Can we make that a two five. Make that to let me tell you what happened right. So we do credit recovery and by the way you can also call nine eight five eight zero jalen and i really wanna noticed who was the founder of the school. You went to high school. Let the founder of the person if founded your school. The reason why we made it three point or bob jacoby because those students felt like they got overlooked because we also this special for the scholars that were in credit recovery and what we did for those scholars who had failed a great. We gave them the opportunity to make that offer over. I believe a seven week period. Don't quote me on the time period but if you went through that program and you got perfect attendance. We treat it like a summer job. Remember we dental high school students. That a lot of them need to work to support themselves and no support their families. So that means they're going to summer school they're not working so we incentivize them. If you have perfect attendance in the program you get a thousand dollars mope. Wow that's better than some wings wings and so the higher performing students and i listened to the voice of my scholars. They lie hotel on holloway. Wait two thousand dollars so let me get this. I was doing all school. Year continues no disciplinary action. And also remind them you get all of these student days turing the school year and so that. That's where i'm going when i leave here. Important question jalen rose and wingstop. Don't pay us but they are taking care of the scholars. We'll keep it wingstop. What's your order wingstop. It's a wing shortest van. It's real in the field stop. They were like let me tell you something. I wanna go pitiable. Oh we can do wings. Y'all wanna go fifty-one over. We thighs as it is. We don't meet with the truck the food and let me tell you something however the you probably have not had that i a my entire school experience public school lunch. I'm you like. I've never had public school lunch. Jalen rose we've talked about going to publish my career. You've been a terrorist. The public school era as well so any time. I don't care what it is. It can be a bag lunch. It can be somebody dropping you off. Mcdonald's one day win is not normal school lunch. It's almost like the ice cream. Truck pulled up when he was eight years old. Is this a level of enthusiasm that everybody's gotta have and you know what else is gonna create a sense of urgency for two point nine and below. Here's why wouldn't the trump pull up. Everybody thinks they get and wings ties there. You gotta get through. The velvet role is like hold on. Hit the brakes so hold on you. Two point what i'll Older one tell you the good for you go. Those are the type of things that we're doing at jr la to create a unique experience for our scholars on trying to do is partner would a relationship in the detroit metropolitan area a gift if not the full school is staff abbreviated groups within the building out of school lunch so i have a few ideas. I'm gonna have doughnut truck common. I'm gonna have. Oh i'm not gonna even name the restaurants until they do. It will be good for you. Good for the skies getting three point zero and above and one thing i learned about public school lunch is i started to get smarter as i got older and i realized if we had like hamburger on monday would have like beef chili on tuesday a second hammers that we didn't need on monday. Chopping them up chillier day car was like wait a second. Why why don't you shepherd's pie. All we had mashed potatoes yesterday. What y'all doing see what y'all own that pass me. They're not getting past me. I didn't feel like thirteen fourteen remixing leftovers and give it to the next day when i found like school lunch. I'm not going to act. Like is a five star delicacy with is improved a lot because it now has to be a balanced meal so it now has so. They'll get like fruit. They'll get like oj and ordered a beverage. It has to be a balanced meal but everything that you is a plus. But i will say this. There was nothing like being an athlete in high school on game days. If like out in good. Today i'm going to kfc good today by body too big macs today so back a memory for everybody. That ate school lunch. You're thirty and above. You know this the ice cream freezer and you get that little cup that pay per cup. That has the circular top with a little tab that you peel off and it's half chocolate and half bonilla and you get that little figure. Eight wooden spoon that spenders in your mouth against your tongue and give like the chills just even thinking about this the texture of that wooden spoon scooper thing and that ice cream that tasted like nothing but man. You couldn't tell me nothing. When i had that ice cream. Look good for you. Good for the scholars of the jalen rose leadership academy jr l. a. detroit. If you wanna help see i still. I still donation dog remember. I made a promise made a promise. Come through with the man. I remember donated the gulf. Turn to me and i think that's storytime storytime. Michelle michelle golf man.

They've got these big built out in the parking lane. They've got a big built out like restaurants with these big wooden things. So i pull over get some coffee. I didn't i didn't judge didn't judge my angles right jalen rose. I consider myself a very good driver. But i heard i didn't like no. I didn't like now. Iran right up against one of those big wooden structures that i heard some bending and twisting of metal some scratching. Now so now. I'm halfway through denting my car. But i'm like do i go forwards or backwards to get out of this so i had to go backwards and i got the car and i got a big dent in the car. No scratch is this bad. I had a call my wife teller.

I'm holding the door for this guy with a baby. We try to get our coffee. There's about twenty people in line in this coffee shop for coffee. Then i'm like you know what room my car can't even get coffee. I tried with a cart. The coffee cart got ten people online for it. And the guy with the babies jacoby jacoby is. I love your show to and just the way my day started man. But this is why i love doing the show so therapeutic my turned around and already. Mondays turned around nobody. I feel like the way. Stop kids the kids when they see the winds wingstop truck. That's how i feel right now. Jalen rose apparently a couple of follow questions. Okay future okay. Please please please go ahead you first. Okay now. you have a decision to make when you dent the car right you go to the guy in harlem and give him like three hundred dollars to fix it or do you go the dealership and insurance and go through the proper channels which way to go with this. Because last time. When i hit the tail light in the parking lot of the old car i went to the hood guy in harlem. There's only one choice for me. No use the atm. Here's a few hundred china china. He he he was hilarious. First of all he was he gave me. He quoted a price a straight up. Like no i'll give you half of that though. And he goes fine because why customers lead to more white customers guy. Oh you need to get your inspection. You'll have your inspection. I'll do that. Forty two and then when. I go to pick up the car. I'm what about the inspection. He's like on another guy. Go down the street to get that done. I'll tell you the guy that can do it all right all right now. That's the that's the rest of the money. So what are your question sir. My question you actually. Ju just acknowledged it the front to back. Ed where you're going to use a surest. The third thing i was gonna follow with was calling your wife like call your mom when you you're young and you did something wrong. How did that conversation go. Oh you know. I'll tell you first of all texted. Because she was working on said. I spoke to early in the car. She whisper and stuff and other guy. Can't talk mindset. So i texted her. The second texas are dented. The car boom her name pop up on a dash. He called me. All you talk now now we got we were just chatting about chloe's school day you can't talk but what's ident- the car she starts conversation. She acts like she cares about me. Are you okay. i'm the care. Okay i said that the car with that line. She's the best she's cool. I told you off wax. I feel like when she's been ten days gone. I think when she walks in the dorms leave it. I'm gonna go right to the airport. Archers i'm going to look at the departures and this pick one not even have a ticket. Jalen rose jalen rose at the dip says show taking. I'm just gonna. I'm gonna point one. It'd be like where are we going to myrtle beach. It's chicago austin. I might even bring my passport. J i might even. I'm show actually to the studio with passport. My pocket on friday. No doubt no question. I love quick. I want to apologize to the people. Listen to this right now. Jalen because we haven't done voicemail and like three days. We've been very busy so now that we've run up against the time limits hit the brakes for you. Go to the fans and a voicemail and our love and our support we the people we about to get to the voicemail but i gotta hit the brakes for second because nikki monagas trent. She's trending because she didn't want to get vaccinated nowhere to go to to the met gala. First and foremost everyone out there. I know you have your political beliefs and your personal feelings about it. You're entitled to do so but also don't be upset when the rest of us look at you like you're causing contagion by not doing it and therefore don't allow you in our hospitals. Our work businesses in our schools fair trade. I'm still trying to decide when i go to atlanta and a couple of days. Am i gonna let my barber. Give me a cut. Who ain't vaccinated. Now as i was having this conversation. Look deeper at the box score. And i said a couple of techs because you know what a may gala was where was it may gala at the met actually where they had the mckellar whereas museum the metropolitan museum of art in new york city okay. The met gala is in new york city right How can speculate without speculating. How can i possibly know what really knowing how about this. Allegedly there are a couple of nets that aren't vaccinated. They can't play and a couple of those guys are the best players. I believe you're going to look up. In the biggest story of the nba season. Three to one is about those guys one to and or maybe three of their members of the members of their team who are not vaccinated. They're gonna have issues playing basketball in the state of new york will. They have announced that the same way the fans need to be vaccinated to enter the building to watch the game. The players are under the same guidelines and rules. It's a state law at point. So what they've announced. Is that if you want to play in the barclays center or madison square garden. You have to abide by the rules set forth. Which are you need to be back to be inside the building. David jacoby when i came on this show and i was talking about debates College i tell you he was going to memphis during that whole week. Did you see posted. Hey michigan state would look like hey oregon. Would i look like in a uniform. When i say something a mean it. That's why y'all listen to the show. This is the industry tastes maker. Shell and i didn't just tell you where he was going to school. I followed up with what else that he was going to sign an nfl deal with fedex which hasn't been announced yet. But i'm expecting it to happen three to one so like i said when i tell you recipes on copy when i tell you the chick lay eggs. Get the skill hot. And i'm trying to tell you the net scott some players that are unvaccinated that are really notable. And that's going to be an issue in the nba caesar star and nobody talking about is right now. That's why you come to jalen and jacoby please continue to proceedings. Call them nine. Eight five eight. Zero jalen livas voicemail in only our podcast listeners can call in because we don't give that number out on the show and only our podcast listeners. Get the exclusives from jalen rose that he can't really say on tv because just with the family now so we want to hear from our family. Ninety five eight zero jalen leaves a voicemail will put you on the show just like this jalen and jacoby. This is neil from the bay area. Shutout ninety five shot are relatively new listeners. To the podcast. My voice put me on chat. Tim i got a cold show or regional when you walk in the house. Take your shoes off before walking around living room to the bedroom. Anything gotta take the shoes off that cultural or regional or neither. Because maybe that's me. Because i don't look like jacoby out of like jalen. I look more like manny. Pack count and that leads me to my question. What is the origin of the while lease while lease that jalen oi springtime day the offs filipino. People wanna know how you how you got your hands on the wall at we love it but who put that in your hands all right keep giving them checks and Medicinal thanks shots off. F- shop bigger shots at tim. Tim out here spreading the gospel. Tim is like meal. You need all friends so listen to jalen and jacoby every day. We exclusives like the trouble at the nets are going to have. And i'm gonna say that taking your shoes off like to discuss with you. Mr rose because it to me is cultural and shots all filipino listeners. That i've noticed that the shoes off policy. I've seen it Enforced by all colors of the human species and all ethnicities. But it's it's definitely definitely more likely to be enforced. By our asian. American brothers and sisters then other ethnicities. So i'm going to say it is cultural your thoughts. I'm going to say is universal. And let me tell you why you laid the foundation extremely will for different ethnicities different backgrounds. Men me and my culture to that because whatever we have we try to keep it cle- we started a sleighs. We have much whatever we have. We try to keep it clean so we have one little couch. Our member like art. I lived in a two family flat in like thirty five percent of the house. We can never go in because that was delivering role with the plastic on the couch and the chairs so that like that rule was just like totally off. Limits is so when you walk in the crib especially in the mid west or on the east coast. It's cold outside most of the year. You gotta take off. Your boots knows days. Were it ain't necessarily code outside and might be wed. It might be rainy. So you're taking off your shoes your boots or whatever. The conditions are for the most part before you walk into the house. Because you just don't want to track somebody's house. Regardless of their floor it'd be marble he'd be would be granted can be whatever is so. I feel like that something. That's actually universally done amongst all of us because people want to keep bay stuff clean. I go to jason story that just as story of getting older. If you're under thirty you're gonna get to this point at one point in your life. Doug i'll be looking at my shoes and my socks and getting zaidi stressed. Because i know i gotta reach all the way down there and put them all. Put my shoes on wall standing up in like three years. Then the socks are fancy now and some socks like tight in the in the in the mid foot between the heel and the toe. It's like kinda tight. I look at some socks and my jaw. I you're not. You're not getting the star today. You're stressing me out. I need some funding some floppy socks. That are easy to slide on and making noise. When i put my shoes on and off if i'm gonna take issue often say if you've ever seen the street shoes are at least as because i'm lazy right now. My shoes are laced them off and on. That's how old i am. That's how i am. I'm making noise would take my shoes off in stress me out and tie shoes anymore. Because it's too hard south. The big shot. I got on his dope. Don life hoodie.

Have the guys in the team and what they go through on the daily basis and the grind to go out there and one hundred.

Because it's not gonna get any lighter the temperature but back i said going through t as right now. Minicamp is upon us so as we start to look at some other developments and progress. Honda some of these guys out in the ot as an putting in the work on the field You know. I think a lot about what they did with the defense. And that was the obvious point. Where the raiders needed to step up from last year. When you start to look at some of the rookies they brought in some of the safeties. They brought in what they did with the defensive line over the off season. Is there any one person that draws your attention as the acquisition. That can really help. Turn this team around. I think the obvious is. Yana can way. And i'm just going to talk about him for a second because everybody in the world knows that was the biggest but if i had to step back and look for another one i'm gonna talk about solomon thomas. This is a guy that played it a really big level and then he goes out and gets injured by the niners gets injured playing for the niners. They end up in. That end ends up moving into free agency. And the raiders. Really got him as a deal. I've talked to several people. I host a show on mondays. On raider nation. Radio and i had a former general manager on who talked about. They thought that could be the steel of free agency. If he's back to one hundred percent in everything we're hearing is he's going to be by time can't gets going. Training camp gets going. So i think that's a guy that's not getting a lot of play. Heidi that absolutely could. Then you go get karl. Joseph comes in as a safety. That's a huge addition. They needed him. Casey hayward is a guy of former pro bowler is he as good as he once was. No i don't think anybody thinks he is. But i'm gonna tell you what i think. Damon are net. Now is it on the outside looking in it. Starting and i think that's good for damon i think but i'm i'm gonna say this to you because i said it. Before the last game of the year the biggest free agent signing was getting gusts bradley and they had to go get a mastermind. No one doubts. John gruden's ability to coach on offense but there a lot of problems. Under gunthers one player told me it was clubbed silver and black where there wasn't a ton of accountability. There wasn't a whole lot there. There's a lot of guys confused a lot of verbiage. Then all of a sudden you bring in gus bradley. Don't underestimate bringing myla's with them and these guys have come in and you know gusts bradley's not a guy who's going to sit there and f-bomb you scream it you he's just not gonna play you to may i can cut on. They're not gonna play. And you know as well as i do. heidi you. Cover the raiders. As good as anybody. These guys care about their paychecks and their paycheck matters in. So the you know if always sudden of it's going to cut into playing time and i've got bonuses for certain levels or it's going to be a chance of getting caught. That's a huge deal so there's a lot of them on one thing i would say to you. Heidi and i would think that you would agree with me is whether you like. What the raiders. Did this off season or not. There is no argument there better today than they were when the season ended. If you wanna talk about trent brown. You're better by subtraction. Your best ability is availability. He wasn't available and quite frankly. I think you could question his maturity a lot. I think trent had a negative impact on some guys because of immaturity. You look at rodney. Hudson and gave jackson great guys to men of character and integrity. No one questions their integrity character. That's not even in the equation with those two but a availability has to match ability. Paid a lot of money. Missed a lot of games so they come in they bring get richie incognito back one of the best guards andrei james's a guy. We were talking about last year. Who could guys on the team or bragging about him Then they go out and get jimmy morrissey. A seventh round. Kid goes to pittsburgh. Heidi as a walk on earns a scholarship becomes a three year starter at pittsburgh and a captain. That's a guy that. I only the night of the draft. And i'll say right here on your podcast. I'm going to predict. He makes the makes his team as seven. The rounder so all of a sudden now does it. Make nick martin expendable they get one of the best running centers in all the nfl. Nick martin gay. So that helps a raiders team that could pass the ball last year but couldn't run away from coal. It's no does it make nick. Martin expendable order. They put more see down on the practice squad which i don't know that he would stay there. A team would pick them up to make room for samyong. This team is exponentially better. I wanted to ask you right there. You talked about the offensive line and how it's been restructured. They broke wreck. Samyong as you mentioned there. What does that mean for some of the others that they've drafted that they've brought in acute talks about a nick martin samuel coming back. He showed a lot of versatility last year. He could play different positions but he also suffered a lot of injury. He would come in he. I think it was at least three games that i can recall where he played. Maybe a quarter before. He's hurt had a knee issue. That seemed to be ongoing. How reliable is he going to be. Just even if it's a depth piece. How reliable consume young beyond this offensive. Line another great question by you. Heidi i think when you look at him. That's one of the things. No one doubts. Sam young's ability when samyong is on the field and i think this is where ota's or such a good thing for the raiders. He's gonna have the demonstrate through ota's and training camp. I can stay healthy. And i can stay reliable if he's able to do that then i think he's definitely got. It's got a really good shot at making this roster but again you you nailed it. He's back because he wasn't making gave jackson or rodney hudson money and he's back in if he can prove to stay healthy. Then this is a guy who can have a fighting shot at making this roster but right now in listen. How fortunate or the raiders. They have the best offensive line coach in all of football. Not just in the nfl of all football. Tom cable he is a well respected genius. He's an offensive line savant. So then in how about this on march show that they caused preaching clay on raider nation radio. We've brought in butch jones. You may remember. Butch audi was the former tennessee head coach one of my best friends. He's been in alabama the last several years so he worked with leather. Would i had been hearing before the draft that they were interested in leatherwood so we brought him on and specifically asked him about leatherwood. Nice because i had heard that am. I knew the day. Been kicking the tires. Hard for him. They liked them. I heard that cable loved him. And so that's why we asked him sign. I think alex leatherwood is gonna come in and shock a lot of people and for people that are concerned about the youth or inexperience on the raiders offensive. Line go back and be a realist. How often was that offensive line as a totality on the field last year and it was minimal so i don't think you have anything to worry about. The offensive line is going to be just fine. What are some of the intangibles that the raider nation can expect from him. He is versa. Let me just say this. Butch gave me and what a great quote. He's the guy you want your daughter to marry off the field and the guy you want with you in a in a back alley if you're walking out of a building in the middle of the night because if thirty guys jump yet there's going to be thirty guys on the ground and it's not gonna be alex leatherwood. He isn't old school raider. He's got the ted hendricks you know he's got the lyles. Ao toughness. the matt millen the howie long. He's a guy that's going to go out and punch you in the face. Take your lunch money. Go buy pizza and then when you walk off the field he'll go visit in the hospital and said you flowers. I mean this everything. I heard about this guy from people. I know who are really close to him. They love him personally. Just stay hard worker. He's a leader. I mean listen. You don't play as a starter for three years at a bunch of different positions for nick. Sabin in the sec. If you stink and this guy is versatile he can play a lot. I love what may acted. I loved it. I ira besetting a with my assistant at watching the draft and after may express literally turned and said. I wonder what heidi thinks of that. When i came right out at his press conference said he's are starting right. Tackle day one. I love that may out through down the galley. Take that at the nfl network. Take that espn. Take any of you pundits. He's a starter baby of it like you said. I mean he really back to his decision third down like that. He had no qualms about saying it and being confident about that decision. And that's what you should be agree with the general manager. And this is who. You're selecting your number one pick. I'll be it he's not on anybody's top twenty dope sheet and when you start analyzing those and you look at max credits and his background. He was the one making those doco sheets and he's probably like he said. I think a few times not looking at anybody else's sheet. He's going off his own assessment with they need. What fits the raiders scheme. And i i. When i was at the draft and i heard that name i said what are they doing and the reason being is. I thought there were other people that were ahead of him. That i had heard or rank tire and you know but then you start thinking about it and you go really will. What do i know. I know. i'm trying to figure out who makes the best fit. What the raiders need going by need looking at the board thinking of other names and a low point. A lot of the big names were gone. Like elijah very tucker was one. That was highly touted Yeah alex leatherwood. I can't see wait to see what he opens. up for. This raiders offense and specifically because the raiders went after kenyan drake this year in the off season and jon gruden has been known for building these running back duos that are like fire and ice earth wind and fire. You know all those kinds of things. Earthen fire the new york giants back in the day. R.i.p jim fossil. Because i've heard that he pass today and he just give a show to jim fossil every time. I interacted with him just so kind he always had a great story man. I'm sad to see him. Go one of the good guys too. Very true r.i.p when he was here in vegas you had a radio show used to let me come on and do a fantasy bit. I got to talk about fantasy football with him and that was an amazing experience for me. It lasted one season. But i enjoy doing it. I enjoyed coming on. I enjoyed every saturday and look forward to doing that. So yeah definitely our coach but when we get to gruden and the running back duos that he's made solid super bowl winning teams off of. What do you think about the mix of josh jacobs and kenyan drake. I think instantly. Josh jacobs gets better. I love this. I love it. I can't say it enough last year. I remember sitting in the press box and watching games and watching how this team played in. You could see josh jacobs wearing down and because it just the beating. He took a lot of that had to do with an offensive line. That was by the time he got to the fourth quarter was piecemeal scotch tape and elmer's glue but here's what kenyan drake does kenyan drake allows them to put kenyan out wide. They can line them up at the x. y. W they could split them out. They could move them out of the backfield and pass catching formations. You can run them together with a double running back set. I think kenyan drake is a lot a very similar to alvin. Kamara at the saints. He's going to make this offense exponentially better first of all his speed. I mean i'm wanting to think about this. Darren waller is not a guys. Go out and run a four two but for a tight end his chris routes. He's great henry ruggs. And wow we haven't even talked about. Hr this is. I hope we do before we go. But henry ruggs can stretch to feel then. You've got kenyan drake. Can you imagine if you put you know. Henry ruggs out a and then put kenyon in the slot. I mean it's it's a pick your poison because there's going to be very few teams with the defensive backs that can cover those two at top speed. Then you've got bryan edwards. Hunter renfrow mean. You can't forget sneed. John brown think about john brown. Heidi i was big on nelson angle. Gay date got john brown for half of what they would have had to pay nelson and his stats are better than nelson. I mean it just goes on and on the wealth of resources on this raiders. Offense is amazing. The best fullback in the nfl and alec angle. So yeah i love what. They did with kenyan drake. Now i feel bad. I'm gonna tell you who. I feel bad for kenyan drake and it's derek carr. Here's why because jon gruden has the biggest playbook all of the nfl all one player. I know who played for them said it wasn't uncommon to have to come in on a monday and download it on your computer one hundred new place that you had to learn by sunday new place on top of the hundred. You already knew. So with adding kenyan drake who knows it could be one hundred and fifty more plays hockey. I don't even know how you remember. One hundred and fifty plays raw training camp. Doing one hundred and fifty in one week. But i'm godless. I'm kidding dir. But i just think it just makes them such a more potent team and they already had a great offense. Yeah in all seriousness. Like i think the idea of thinking of them like a chimera marie or what have you Kind of situation is one of those things that is going to be just huge for them. So huge for the raiders. And it'll take a lot of pressure off of those guys like you're talking about henry ruggs bryan edwards. That are expected to take a big step forward. Something i know henry ruggs has been doing. He's been taking this very seriously. And i know that during the off season he's been working on his conditioning his weightlifting core trying to get in shape to your point with henry ruggs. I wanna ask about that. Dynamic speed about that route running is something. I think that he had some miscommunication on last year. How does he get better in those areas. Highway that's a great question. It's why love listening your podcast. It's why i love being in the press room with you. You're so good at what you do. Let me go back and say this. There were a lot of fans last year ripping the raiders because of what they perceived as an unproductive rookie class. I think there was one player who underproduced more than anybody. We'll get to that a minute. But i don't think fans understood the value of ota's the mini camps. In all. i remember last year. Derek carr gets a bunch of guys in the desert but it wasn't something that happened every day. It was a rarity so when you look at wide receiver. Those are precision patterns. You run nine steps. Cut your left nine steps. Cut it a forty five degree angle. You're right where derek has been able to get you the ball at a place very specific henry. Ruggs did not have a good rookie year. But henry ruggs. Didn't have a good rookie year. Because henry ruggs because of covid didn't get an opportunity to get the reps in with his quarterback to learn what he wanted now. Damon didn't have a good year. And i said this before. The season ended damon her net needed to grow up and needed to mature. This offseason issues weren't maturity it was learning how to run better routes. But how do you do that. You'll learn it in practice when you're were derek and say listen. Cut that off with your speed. you know. we're telling everybody to cut it at nine yards wanted. You cut it at ten. 'cause your speeds going to get you there a little bit faster. Those are things that people don't know about those are people that things that people don't understand about the nuances of the game. And so henry ruggs bryan edwards didn't have the year remember. They were both starters before injury beginning of the year. and that's without mini camps. This is two guys that people are talking about. Heidi i know you're plugged in his. Im everybody's talking about henry. He's bigger faster stronger. He knows his playbook. That guy is going to be a terrorist and the afc west bryan edwards. I think the same thing. Brian is because brian editors completely different player as a wide receiver but completely different. Just think about deciding hunt. Hunter renfrow sneed brown edwards rugs zeh jones. It goes back to julio jones one of the things that i love about the las vegas review journal. And i know that we compete. But i'm still gonna give you credit. Because i love this about your paper because you do what we do at sports illustrated the las vegas review journal doesn't sell click bait it. The las vegas review journal puts a story up. Whether it's adam you've any or any of your other great writers it's substantive information. It's good stuff you guys don't don't cheat the fans. I love that about what you do. And i credit you because that's not the case with everybody in the national media and so in the holy jones thing came out i instantly talked about. The raiders will not give up a first round pick. I don't believe anyone will unless they're gonna get cash wrigley because of his salary. And i got that from talking to several people in management around the nfl. I also said because someone. I know who works with atlanta that the raiders did goal. There was no offer but they did kick the tires. But made it very clear we're not overpaying for him so if you can't find a suitor we're interested but we're real happy with what we have so everyone else was stirring the fans and you guys did not. We had to talk about it because they did call. They kick the tires. That was legitimate. But you guys weren't doing you. Aren't you again doing the same thing we did. A sports illustrated you weren't out there. Selling click baked to the fans because the raider fan base is so big though click anything. I literally remember when june. I had i had people may know sending me emails and getting hold of social media. Hey it's the julio jones watch you're gonna look stupid and i would send back a smiley face well. He is in tennessee today. And why because first of all the raiders were one player away. They weren't. When i'm gonna tell you this everybody i know an nfl management told me they thought baltimore's where that that were baltimore needed to be one player away more tennessee. That's what everyone told me. It's what we said what we reported. So what. I found interesting though. Is that tells you the confidence that they had. But one other big thing about mac and gruden they have been so socially. Excuse me so financially conservative that you may remember this. Heidi year and week six. I started hearing from. Nfl management people about the coming salary cap apocalypse took a lot of grief. People laughed at me. They mocked me. And i kept telling people starting in about week nine. The raiders are going to be fine then when it hit no. We're not. We're this much over and i said relax the way they did deals. They're going to get below and they're going to be buyers the raiders. I mean look they get janaka and gaga sign. Him first day needed him desperately but didn't overpay. There wasn't one free agent that they paid for there. Were some guys that could pay more. But we're not going to gamble the future. Why because we're not the raiders. The raiders run by l. davis anymore. You know if al davis and i'm not ripping him he's an american in a professional sports icon but late in his career. He may some decisions. That weren't good. This jamarcus russell. Some free agents. That weren't good. And i think if you're gonna praise him and he deserves that then. He also deserves some of the criticism for late in his career. But that's julio jones's a trade that probably al davis would have made there was some free agent guys at al davis probably would have went and overpaid for but instead may aachen gruden waited. Let the market come to them. Got real good guys at real good value. So look at what they did. Andre james is a young center but he was a guy last year that they were leading. Hudson take reps off. 'cause they wanted to see james. He did a lot on special teams and they loved his effort. They love that kit. So they're like okay. We think we can let rodney go. There's been some injuries but with the money he's making we really like andrei so they let rodney go so then they go sign. Nick martin. The best runs one of the best run centers and all the nfl. Because that's where they stink. But then they stole jimmy morrissey i know for a fact. The raiders did not even expect more seek to get to them they they had about a gr- grade fourth round grade on him and they thought boy. This is a guy we'd love to have. He's firstly completed ton of positions on the interior. They loved jimmy. Morrissey i tell you this pen or disease head coach. Ed pit is one of my very best friend so on the need you. If you saw this we had jim. I'm jimmy morris. Radio show the day after the draft talking about you know pats text me. He's going to be raider. Going to be a raider. They love them. Cable loves and so they go get a jimmy morrissey so look at what they did so now they have mcmartin proven back so you go through as you go to many you go through training camp. Okay do do we let a nick martin. 'cause morris exactly what we thought or do we put try to see if we can keep jimmy on the on the practice squad. Maybe i mean there's so many different options for this team because they've stayed flexible financial financially. They've been disciplined again. Not a cheerleader. My job to tell the truth. I said going into the last game last year. If the raiders lose this season isn't a disaster but if they win. It isn't as good as i thought they'll do. But you can't call it a disaster because in your three it's yet again. A higher number of wins for gruden. You gotta call feta's spain but if you don't think this team is better today than when the season ended you're probably chief's fan. You gave us there a lot of credit on the julio jones situation. It's like you stole my thunder there. I was gonna do the exact same thing for you. Because i had been reading your coverage and i was glad that you know you weren't overselling it as well as like all good. There's somebody else you know. At least two of us then aren't going and overselling matt story and thanks for the credit there as well. I appreciate it. Wanted to take a quick break when we come back.

Welcome back to the takeaways edition of the biggest nation. Podcasts tidy thing. And i'm doing here by sl dot com ondo carpenter you can also catch him on raider nation radio. Honda tell everybody the days and times that you are on raider nation radio amman raider nation radio co hosting And klay on mondays from seven to ten and then i'm also on fridays at eight o'clock great in the morning. Great staff yeah. That's all pacific time. Of course if you happen to be listening back east so check out raider maven as well as part of those things. That honda is a publisher on with sports illustrated. I'll honda as we walked away. We were talking about the. Julio jones situation Both giving each other praise for that but i want to look now at the season. They don't face those titans. So i think that in for them now but when you start looking at the raiders schedule over this eighteen week season that we now have ahead of us. Where do you see any hard spots. That the raiders. You think could have a tough go at as the schedule. I think a decent though that they have the week eight by. I really liked that. I can see a couple of areas where i think automatically. Well that's gonna be a tough stretch of playoff contenders. They face but for you. What do you see automatically when you look at it. We know there's a couple of times where you see him. You know making some trips east on a short week after monday. I think those are going to be losses. I mean it's hard enough to travel from the west coast to east coast and get an early game but on a short week I know. I made some fans mad predicted. They're going to go to dallas and lose that game. It's a short week Then they play on thanksgiving. And so it's gonna probably a relatively early game so if you're guys whose bodies adjusted to the west coast. That's a miserable experience. I'm gonna tell you. This here is what i always do. I always predict the season saying to me. What's the max. Level of regular season wins. And then what's the what's the floor. What is the acceptable lowest number. Last year. I said. I thought the team would win ten. I said but eight was the lowest. It could be still be a successful season. I'm going to go a step farther. This time. i think eleven wins is what is team. Ceiling is eleven six in fact. That's what i predicted. Recently in sports illustrated went to all the games gave my streaks. When i thought they win one thought they lose and said but ten is is the floor to me. This is a double digit win team. And it's a double digit win team in an extra game. And i think that specially with fans in there. Now i'm gonna. I'm gonna give you a dynamic that i can't wait to see and i'd love to hear your thoughts on this heidi. This is not mark davis fault. Mark davis priced his tickets fair but the casinos and a lot of third parties. A lot of people bought those tickets. As an investment. I have a buddy who is a schoolteacher in dallas texas. His wife used to be my secretary. I actually introduced them. Been married for many many years for kids and they travel up to chicago every year to watch the bears. They're diehard bears fans knew loved the chicago bears and so they called me and said. Hey listen can we stay with you. Because we're coming out there to watch. Kogo play the raiders. And i said well you better find chick. Tickets are expensive. He said yeah. We bought two of them for thirty five hundred bucks and he goes but by time we travel up there to chicago and everything else. It's what we're going to pay so we don't mind for road game now. I waited. Think about something rick goslin. Who is the hall of fame writer. He's a hall of fame voter for the dallas morning news. Great guy he happens to be my mentor and last year. He said something on on on our sports illustrated. Podcast about the raiders. In i thought was interesting. I want to get your input. He said it used to be dallas. Was where every team wanted to go for two on the road to watch their team play and he said you guys need to be careful because i think the raiders have lost their home field advantage. Now let me give you one example. I have thirty four friends. Who are traveling here. Just for the bears game thirty four friends from around the country. I have every single home game. People have already contacted me saying hey. Can i stay at your house. I've already bought tickets. It is stunning to me. And i'm serious. I remember going to oakland. I was covering the detroit lions when they played oakland in a preseason game matt. Millen who i think you know. This is my best friend very close to matt. I love dearly. So i'm out there covering them blinds and that's where i got to meet al davis the first time in so i'm out there and that crowd was unbelievable. I think in it's now. Mark davis is fault so many people have bought those tickets for an investment. And they're selling those tickets that i'm anxious to see yes. Raider nation has deep pockets. Nobody doubts that. But when you're getting nose bleed seats for thirty five hundred dollars for two tickets. That's all a lot of money in a lot of people are coming in from around the country because they want to be in your house. I had one person. Tell me Who's a very large third party broker. Who i'm friends with. Who has lottery tickets. He said to me. I think it'll be cheaper for raider fans to go. Watch the raiders at other places than in allegiant stadium. If they're not season ticket holders love your feedback on that. I think you're under percent on to something here and las vegas as it is is a very transient city. So there's not people here. That are a hundred percent always going to be there. So if i bought like you said season tickets but i travel all the time. So maybe i sell those tickets on ebay or wherever you selam two tickets a piece to whoever wants to come in through town and i think the benefit of this is that both la and oakland or close but the price point. If you're talking about a weekend trip you think about the hotels already putting up the rates higher. So maybe you're looking for an airbnb somewhere because the hotel rooms here are going to cost you at least minimum two fifty night during a raider game and then you talk about the transportation now. A mark medina press conference last week where they talked about the transportation and said that they're going to have many different ways. There's at least seven different ways. You can get to raiders stadium whether it's a shuttle whether it's a bus other even talking about the vegas loop underneath as a possibility and he's talking with the boring companies so there's all these different things that are uber's ways get to raider game I think what is lost on it. Is that the tailgating. Won't be the same and we've you went to the part of the game. I think meant so much to raider nation as they got together as a family. Because that's what everyone that i speak with is a partner. Raider nation says is about being a family. They lose the opportunity to do that when they have to tailgate into twenty different parking. Lots and some of those parking. Lots don't allow tailgating around allegiance stadium might but that's a big cornerstone of what the raider fans what raider nation loved is gone. And i think that's going to be hard for them to try to find new ways to gather and and that's part of the mystique in the love for raider nation. That's lost on allegiant and kyle something to you that i think is interesting. Yeah i'm i'm sure you. I know you've traveled all over covering the nfl but to me there's only two places in the nfl that remind me of college football the excitement and i'm not talking about i'm about big time. College football green bay yet as bad my mind to green bay and oakland. Those are the two places. So i'm going to go back to that trip. I took to oakland when rod marinelli was the head coach of the lions and matt. Millen was the general manager. So mad told me. Go out and walk around so lama. Walking around. And i didn't obviously report. It wasn't like i was alliance fan. I'm just they're covering game. And this is what stood out to me. It was every conceivable color of people every conceivable size of people and they were all gathered literally under the banner of the silver and black. Everybody offered you food. Everybody invited i got to tell you. I haven't had some offers. I won't talk about on your podcast. Because they weren't friend lambing. They weren't family. But i'll just say this. I saw one lady who was a nun and i asked her. I said a raiders fan. She goes why do you think nuns worse. Silver and black f android an elite. Whoa okay lady. She'll god's raider fan. I loved it. I mean people inviting you to whatever it was just to me. It was an atmosphere. That may raiders raiders. I don't wanna go walk through a tailgate and for raider game and have somebody say. Would you like in or a all. That's not going to be raiders to me. So i think this is going to be a feeling out process because i think even if the raiders are good or bad it isn't gonna make a difference because people are going to want because here's the thing if you say you're living in chicago which i have. I have about fifteen to twenty friends coming from chagall game. It's a middle winter. So you wanna get out of there. You want to go to la or do you want to go to vegas where you can make it a weekend with the gambling.

How lead to weekend play on their about that. Just let it slow down a little bit dodge on the phone and get lois though. He doesn't know he's pretending to be on the phone. Trying to get louis riddick. 'cause he didn't want engage. Yeah yes mclovin. Okay gotta really. It's always there on college. Football ever really mean college football most disappointing program over the last decade. I think the choices are easy okay. Usc texas or michigan disappointing. Busy expectations were became so high. Well i don't know if the texas expectations are that high michigan because of horrible expectations are high texas spends. But they don't get result. I guess. Usc because you must see used to be a that was a dynasty. But it's been a long time i mean. Usc has to understand who is right now. Today's landscape and it's not pretty but that's why they made this move. It's just you fire. Clay helton clay. Never would have gotten this job. He never would have been the head coach. If you didn't have the fallout with what happened. Was steve certain things. They keep promoting from within. And i think that's where member brady hoke. You gotta have a michigan guy. You don't have to have a michigan guy. You have to have the right michigan guy. You don't have to have a usc guy. Have the right usc guy and clay holton nice man but not a head coach usc. Honest truth and has many times came on. He was very generous with his time. I just it felt like he wasn't a head coach. There and there were boos there at the coliseum and you get embarrassed by stanford and all of a sudden. You're out after two weeks. Yeah polling michigan. Football hasn't won the big ten. Since two thousand and four brady hoke had and eleven to and two season. Harbaugh's kept them relevant. They've had a bunch of ten win seasons and they're always in the top twenty but it it still feels like get that big ten title and beat ohio state and then it's back yeah. Michigan is relevant but they don't beat ohio state. And until you do that. You're just not going to be on the national landscape. You need to be a contender. You need to beat ohio state texas. I've never had any high expectations for not in a long time and they've had fun quarterbacks and they've had some talent there i just haven't looked texas and went well. I mean since. Vince young left. Usc it always feels like okay now. They got this quarterback this wide receiver. This running back. I mean. I wonder if they take some big swings. Here i would. If i'm usc the problem sometimes is when you take big swings. If you miss then it feels like wow what happened to that program. You can't get the guy you want me. Remember when florida state florida was like asking everybody. But you know there's only a couple of programs like notre dame can get who notre dame once or ohio state could get who they want. Alabama nick sabin decides to step down. I mean there's a few program clemson that where you can go. Hey we got a lot of people that would surprise you. That want these jobs but usc that hasn't been the feeling. But they promote from within. And i think that's part of their problem is well yama club. We were all talking about. How florida state. I we still think of them. It's a florida state from twenty years ago and we don't understand why they're not that team. Well there there's florida state. texas is like that. There's a few that when when we grew up you knew that they were great programs here in and year out you know. Oklahoma is still a great program year in in your own. Texas just isn't but Usc and i wonder if they take a swing as crazy as this is going to sound. And it's going to sound crazy. Does usc go after urban meyer. Because they from what. I was told that they made an offer. And the higher ups to a certain degree level wanted urban meyer and then it went all the way the top and it was next it was vetoed. They did not want to bring in urban meyer into that. Current culture that everything that's going on at usc. you take a swing for urban meyer. I guess you got to at least try. Let's bring in louis riddick. The former defensive back and he's the analyst for monday night football next week. Monday night football. Lions at the packers the ravens next game sunday night hosting the chiefs. The raiders next game at the steelers on sunday and lewis joins us now lewis if i missed the game and you were trying to summit up. Could you summit up Yeah just that you couldn't put any kind of word limitation on me. Though you know it'd be it'd be a little bit longer of a of a of a summary but what i mean. Damn you saw wild night. Whatever this wild night I think the raiders for once really as long as they don't have anything unforeseen happened from an injury perspective or from a kobe perspective. I think they have the makings of a team. Especially on the deep decide that could really give them a respectable level play. Unlike any defense they had since maybe john came back and i think that's a big difference. I think with the with the ravens. I still think. I think they're going to be fine. They were playing so so much. So you know at a deficit because of not knowing what the running back room would actually look like on game day All the line hadn't played very much during the preseason got you know they have a new right tack on the bill in the way who you saw really struggled. They know now just what they're going to have to do with that I still think they're going to be okay. 'cause i mean there are that game could have went either way so i think they're going to be fine but i think i think the raiders could really really have a decent team. They really could with the the key is going to be that defense is derek carr the guy. Yeah i've always believed that and You know what the the debate with him or surrounding him for his entire career. It's always something. That's kind of puzzles me a little bit and i know you know in this started even before he even got to oakland. I mean there's always been this you know. at first. it was just ridiculous. Well you know. His brother wasn't very good and it's like well who who cares. i mean what. What does that have to do with him. And then it was well since he struggled with some situations as far as Throwing the football against pressure fresno. He's gonna struggle within the nfl now that but see some of those things followed him when he got when he went to the pros but if you look at his career objectively and look at how he stacks up against some of the best. Throwers in the nfl. In critical situations whether it be fourth. Quarter comebacks third down completion percentage Police who you know. Completion percentage in the red zone or passer rating in the red zone. This guy is right up. He's top five top eight throughout the course of his career and in particular last year. And i think he's he's someone who right now is so. He's so comfortable with what john is doing from an offensive perspective. He knows everything about that. Offense to the point where it's like. They both will tell you. He could probably teach it well as john can teach it that. I think you're going to see him play. You're seeing play the best football. He's played yet. And he's going to take guys like henry rugs and take brian edwards. Who was basically the hero last night and he's going to make them better players so that's really i think what's next derek. Not just how high how much further. He can take his game. Statistically but how much better he can make everyone around and how much he can. Elevate the people around the. Because that's truly wild. We really you know really comes down to it. That's how we really measure greatness at the quarterback position is you know numbers are numbers and i get it and some numbers have more important than others but it's really about. How much better do you make your team. And how much better do you do. You make your guys on offense as far as elevating their level. Play and i and he realizes that i asked him that specific question when we talk to them Before the monday night game and he's very aware of it. My thought you saw happened last night. Nothing you're gonna continue to see it happen. It's not very often. When i could take a highlight reel of a quarterback i could give you like three or four five plays and it all happened in one game but i could also give you lowlights of three or four. Plays and lamar jackson. Had both of those last night What do you make of his performance. Last night i think even though he wouldn't say that He felt any added pressure as far as having to play above and beyond his own standard of greatness that he's already set but the truth of the matter is he played last. Mike like like someone who knew that felt like i had to do something even more spectacular than what my normal standard is and he may have a certain points in time gotten careless as far as ball security especially when he was running taken off trying to pick up some extra yardage. I mean you saw the two the two crucial turnovers. That the raiders defense force in that game were in situations where you know. He's the primary ball carrier. He's in traffic. And there. And and i mean it just it costs. It costs too. I think i think he'll he'll learn from that he'll learn from that and that won't happen. You know what they consistent level of Of occurrence as one. He watches the tape from last night. To the offense itself really find its identity and really starts to develop some cohesion. because it doesn't have any of these guys have been on the they haven't really been on the field together. All preseason long for different reasons starting off lamar and time because cogan dolphins a line. They've been shuffling people around especially in between from guard the guard and then they didn't play play very much together You know all the running back injuries. Obviously the injuries that wide receiver with rashad bateman miles boykin not even not being available to them so i think as they all start to kinda like get it together from a health perspective and start to have some time to practice together and greg roman office coordinator has an idea of exactly how they can best utilize everyone. I think you'll see them. Lamar's mentality shift from. I have to do everything to just okay now. I can just utilize what's around but last night. There's no question. He felt like he had to do more than what was really necessary. And it cost him. Crucial numbers were you ever in a locker room where you knew. Your starting quarterback was not the right quarterback for you like the bears situation. That andy dalton is there but there's part of that locker room that probably says put in just in fields. He's the best guy here. How does that work in the locker. Yeah i've never never been in that kind of situation with With the quarterback position in particular. I mean you can get indefinitely just from the from a team perspective. I haven't been part of teams whole life and you can understand how in the bears locker. There's probably there's there's definitely going to be those who feel as though just in needs to be in there right now. There's probably a certain you know certain part of the locker room. That's a little bit louder than others. As far as making that point known and with every loss that they you know that they continue to rack up. And with every touchdown pass to justin continues to throw or run for both in practice and in games like he did the other night against the rams that you know that silent are not really silent but that kind of vocal minority is gonna be coming vocal majority and matt's got to be very careful. Make sure he has his finger on the pulse of that because if he's gotta make sure this this season doesn't get away from them from his locker room kind of like you know fracturing and spluttering to the point where he can't recover it and then try and make a move to justin before you know and it's too late. Yeah that'd be definitely. He's definitely got to be careful with that. Y- i just wonder if matt nagy has that much and i can say confidence in his job but it feels like he if you were desperate than you put ingestion fields than you would attach yourself to your rookie quarterback and say wow. We don't want to break up that relationship. And i don't know if i think they play the lions maybe in week five and i was wondering if if maybe that's enough time justin fields gets in for a little bit sprinkler him in there and then all of a sudden you on bail him in a in a game against the substandard team but trying to figure out that logic with the coach. Who's on the hot seat. You get your rookie quarterback. It almost felt like they went with the rookie quarterback that was going to make mate mean that the coach and gm. We're going to keep their jobs for a little while longer. Yeah i mean you you know when when you try and really predict how this would potentially play out. Yeah i i could see where you feel that way and and how most people would feel that way quite honestly i felt you know even knowing that as well as i do i always thought that you know at some point in time like sooner rather than later obviously he would turn to him too because he didn't you know he he's. He's a real estate. Understand that you know things are on the line and that you know. Obviously if you go with the young quarterback it could wind up giving you more time as far as your you know review surrounding your job. Status is concerned that maybe he would rush that along sooner rather than later and he has pushed back against that theory. Right from the get-go dan. He's has said numerous times. And i believe that he doesn't care about his his job. This is really about the short and the long term development and then sustainability of justin fields of his career that he's trying to save card and safeguard the young man's career. He doesn't really care what happens to him meaning if he gets fired. He's going to do the right thing he's to do right by the kids. And that's i and look. I mean most people feel as though and the whole cities chicago field relationships put him in there and quite honestly you know even be as close as i am to match. I feel he should put him in there but he really does want to see what you can do. He really does feel as though justin obviously doesn't have something that is not making him comfortable right now to the point where he would just throw them in there especially given the deficiencies that this offense has and i look i. I respect the hell out of them for doing it. That way because the the the scrutiny in the pressure that's being put on him right now to play that kid. I mean you know. It's it's unbelievable. It's unbelievable and he won't. He won't rush until he builds his. That's the best thing for the kid. And the heck with his own jobs. That is and i and i respect that great broadcast last night with the guys. We appreciate you joining us as always and have fun next week in green bay. You that's louis riddick former.

Strawberry spring based on a short story by stephen king is. When they're i can't see through the fog you out.

Hello henry heavier just now. The radio he was a murderer around campus. It has all the side. Their utility can't be sure but as a right now in books like spring heel. Jack is back strawberry spring starring garrett hedlund and milo ventimiglia produced by audio of media and iheartradio listened to strawberry spring on the iheartradio app apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcast or stream. It live on the peacock ryan karchi covers. Usc for the l. a. times kind enough to join us on what has to be a busy day probably busy couple of days. Coming up here. why now why was klay hilton fired after two games. I think it was just made pretty clear that that stanford defeat when you're down by more than four touchdowns in the fourth quarter to a a seventeen or you're supposed to be a seventeen point favorite. It was the most lopsided loss at the coliseum ten unranked opponents since two thousand. So and i think the general vibe around the program the frustration of this fan base it. There are very few families. I think that spend three years just completely resolute. In the back of their coach should be fired and and letting the administration no very clearly. So i think that was in their heads of of course and i think they just realized that after putting behind clown Putting so many resources and retooling the staff and changing the recruiting behind clay helton to see him come out with just a demoralizing loss that basically showed all the same issues the last several years. I think i was just kind of breaking point for them. What were the expectations for this team. Well the expectations as they said have always been to get to pactel championship or to win a backfill championship. And i think it was just pretty that game that they weren't gonna do that but now you know it was clear from the statement that the mike boni athletic director put out yesterday that it's kind of a national championship or bust attitude as they look for head coach. You know they're saying all the right things in that sense. But i think with klay help mitt. The result the fact of the matter was he was just never going to reach that point. I think this administration came to that realization. Maybe a little bit later than been some other people. Did i think it's fair to quibble with the fact that they didn't just take care of this last year but there are other factors involved namely his buyout for for a long time just given the fact that lens had given an extension to klay home after the twenty seventeen season if they would've fired him in twenty nineteen it would have been twenty million dollars. Buy out so. That certainly played a part at Much smaller now. So i think that certainly helps but at a certain point you just reached that point where fans just aren't going to show up and it's gonna affect you financially in that way too. Yeah and you go five in one know during the pandemic and you can't fire him then. But i was just surprise and your new athletic director when he came in at least was fair. And you would want that in your athletic director to say. Let me to see what we have here to be fair to to klay hilton. I was surprised that lynn. Swann kept him right. That was certainly a sign of the fact that lind's wind didn't necessarily have best director experience that you need when you're at usc and since he's left it's been kind of clear even just talking officials in athletic department. Were there for both that interest to start changing professionalism for whatever you think about the football program at least mike bone. Has you know quite a bit of experience when it comes to the administrative aspects of the job and you know it this will be the toughest test him being an athletic director. And it'll be interesting to see how that search but ryan you have so much that's gone on at usc. In the last couple of years we have the operation varsity blues. You have a sexual assault Harassment lawsuit against a campus doctor. I mean you didn't have fans the football games. There's a whole lot going on here. It almost felt like they couldn't make a move like this because they didn't want to add to what was already going on. Would that be overstating this maybe to some degree. Although i do think all of those things play a factor. Obviously and i think it's an interesting sign of where the university is that at that. The leadership of the university looks at the pandemic an obvious deficit and financial issues comprom- mats and they say you know we still need to get rid of gla hilton wheth- whether his vallat is over ten million whether we're going to have to pay several million more to to buy out to members of his staff or dubai out a new coach at a certain point the bottom line that's being affected by our football program is important enough to make that change. But i do think you know with klay held. It always helped the fact that he was no viewed as a man of integrity. He was a consummate gentleman. You never had to worry about just ethical issues at least it at a program level with klay hilton in charge and that was the reason why he was hired in the first place by pat. Haden you know. Post steve sarkissian pat haden kind of became taken with the fact that you know this was a man of integrity who would be leading us into a new era. We can put this Genera behind us. Obviously a pretty short sighted look at how you hire your football coach in. That certainly played out. But i think that when you look at the fact that play guy. Six full seasons as the head coach. I think it helped quite a bit that he was kind of viewed as a man of integrity and people generally liked him including his players who should be the next head coach at usc. That's a tough question. I think they have a really difficult search ahead in the sense that a lot of boozers want a big splash. Hire our own Bill paschke said in his com- yesterday that you know they need to go out and hire a guy not that needs still needs to prove himself but that has already proven himself that already has the equity in recruiting and nationally to sort of instantly. Hit the ground running and make you see that national contender. I'm not sure many of those guys are out there. There's a a bob. Stoops may be chris peterson. I know you know. I'm sure in the coming weeks. Their agents will will leak out. They're not interested the obvious choice. A lot of people have connected. Is luke fickle at cincinnati. Because that's who. Mike bone hired when he was athletic director there. I'm not so sure. That's a sure thing. At luke fickle spent basically his entire life in ohio in the mid west I've heard from some people. They're not sure whether he would wanna go to. Usc and be a part of that kind of la cacophony of fans constantly complaining about the program. Now there are a lot of other candidates. Matt campbell. Made even bill o'brien Who sort of bring that half's. Maybe they have kind of proven themselves a little bit in difficult places. What about urban meyer. I was wondering if you'd bring that up that. I'm sure there will be a lot of message. Board topics with urban meyer. Title over the next couple of weeks but the same issues stand from before when when he was talked about every indication that i've gotten from usc officials people at the university. Even not even just an athletics was the appetite for risk. You're bringing in a guy who has maybe a questions about his integrity in his past. You know at this current moment in our society. I just don't know that the administration at the university level hasn't stomach for that lane kiffin. That would certainly be interesting. I don't know lane would wanna come back just given the way the the way things ended but honestly everything. I've heard that they will open up the search to anyone in everyone for now. They have basically three months to conduct it. So that's a lot of time to figure it out but it also leaves less margin for error in terms of if you get it wrong. You really screwed this up. I'm gonna throw it another name. And he was just on campus. David shaw yes. I mean he wouldn't leave for. Nfl jobs now. I wonder if he'd really wanna route his family and all that to leave stanford when he clearly they've had a rough couple seasons and you don't hear his name anywhere near the hot seat. So i think that's a pretty comfortable situation to be in although fascinating idea. Great to talk to you ryan. Thanks for joining us. We'll be following. What what you right awesome. thanks ryan.

He hosts the eagles preseason as their color analyst. He is a Very busy man. He'll be on the call the chiefs and the raven sunday night football on westwood one and he joins us now. Was that one of those. That the raiders one or the ravens lost as. We like to ask that question. Ross man and i'm gonna. I'll give the raiders credit because it felt like they wanted a couple times. So i'll say. The raiders won it but there's no question that lamar jackson. Fumbles were the difference in the game and it felt like the ravens were really pretty darn good shape other than those fumbles. But that's a big part of it. Yeah that's a big part of lamar jackson as a player. It's a big part of the of the football. Game and way the raiders played. I was just so impressed. Because i thought there were a bunch of times when the raiders could've laid down we're going to lay down and the ravens would take it away. I don't know i've seen the stat was like eight times in a row. The ravens at one or something like that then. A fourteen point lead. So give the raiders a lot of credit to come back against a very good defense down to scores like that. Are you sold under a car. You derek carr guy. I am sold that. Derek carr is a franchise quarterback i am sold. The derek carr is a starting quarterback. And i think most people probably realize now dan into this debate. But if you have a top twenty quarterback and i believe derek carr is that right somewhere. Probably between twelve and twenty depending on how he's playing. I think you'll hold onto those guys for dear life because if you have one of the worst five ten you really don't have a shot. It you have derek carr. You have a chance to go to the playoffs. You have a chance to play. Offs win multiple playoff games. Do i think he's a super bowl championship quarterback. Well i mean if nick foles one yes if jimmy garoppolo should have one one couple of years ago then yes but you have to have a really good team around him are you. You're acting like a lawyer here. You're making a case for your client. Yeah but like. I guess i don't know. Are you passionate about derek cards. Your quarterback no. I don't think i am although i really liked. I really liked what he said last night after the game about as offensive line about the defense he kinda he kinda got me passionate about him as a guy maybe more than him as a quarterback with that post game interview what he said about zeh jones six am derek carr cutting out me. Fired up after the game you know. What derek carr in a category. He goes into dan. Derek carr and kirk cousins. Allow these guys. They go into the category of man. You'd rather have him than a bunch of other guys. But you always rather have somebody better. I started twenty five games. Dan in my career over fight. Whatever how many years it was. I got the distinct impression. Every time i was playing that the team was on would really rather have somebody. Better lose the game forum. I lose the guinea border but they really would rather it's hard. Derek carr monday night after you watch that ridiculous. Throw that mahomes may deteriorate. Kill to give the chiefs that win against. It's hard to watch some of these guys and the plays they make and not as a fan be like a. I want that. I want that guy. Cousins is fine cars five. I want that guy for my team. We're talking to ross tucker former. Nfl offensive linemen. We believe he started twenty five games in his. Nfl career. Lamar jackson. I can give you a highlight of unbelievable stuff and then i can give you another highlight tape. That is bad stuff there and having those two in the same game. You're just you know you help your team win but you help your team lose as well. What do you think the ravens will try to get lamar to do differently against the chiefs on sunday night. I can't wait for the game sunday night. It's going to be awesome. It's a huge game. Obviously there's two things number one he just can't fumble like that. You cannot tumble. what's that mean. of course. he can't fumble he doesn't he's not trying to what it means is take care of the ball better. You know when you're in that situation you're not always going to be able to escape. This is not high school anymore. it's not louisville. You're not always going to be able to make a play. You can't fumble any still misses a few layups. So he makes them great throws touchdown andrews back in the end zone. He makes them awesome. Throws dan but he's still misses some layups and i said the same thing about the ravens for years now. I think that the ravens are good enough to win. Double digit games win playoff game. Maybe too but i don't see a superbowl yet to win three games to go to the super bowl against good teams. The cheeks the bills. The browns whatever he just doesn't maybe not just lamar but the passing game. It's just not good enough converting the layups to win three playoff games. Are i feel like the ravens. Are in football purgatory. And i'll give you does he. The seahawks great on sunday. But i don't think they're really good enough to beat tampa or to go to the super bowl. I think there's some teams that are in no-man's-land where they're just going to go to the playoffs and maybe win a game every year. And that's it seattle in the in the nfc baltimore in the afc. Okay but lamar jackson's twenty four. How much more can he improve with his passing. Because it felt like he was really reliant on running because they don't have a running game and maybe that lead to some of these fumbles but as far as being a pocket passer because he's gonna eventually slow down and he's gonna have to beat you from the pocket a couple of times here. Well it's interesting because it felt like they had him do more of that last night than we'd seen the last two years even when he was. Mvp was more dropback passing. from lamar. Honestly dan i think he probably has a similar career path to cam newton. Now i don't think lamar takes his much physical punishment as camden. Because lamar is more of a speed runner than a power runner. But i wouldn't. I would not be surprised if they had similar career paths in. Which lamar has several more good seasons and the ravens are in the mix like the panthers were for a while there and then eventually you know the physical gifts are not enough for him to be able to have sustained the play like that in his thirties. You think this a ten year window. Yeah what's wrong with that by the way not everyone. Everybody's breeze ten years. I mean if you have an mvp caliber quarterback for ten years. That's awesome the biggest surprise of week. One one probably the packers playing that poorly. I picked the texans. The wins so i can't say them. I picked the eagles to win. So i can't say i did not think the packers were come out there and play that poorly. But i'll say this dan. I have no idea why they fired. Mike patton he was. They were top. Ten defense a second-half last year. They bring in joe berry who's never coordinated better than like the twenty eighth ranked defense in four or five years variance. There is on defense. Four or five years never better than like twenty eight and they looked like they gave up thirty eight points. Jameis winston could have been more and offensively boy. I know they got some old line issues with bahktiar out but they did not look very good. And i'm sorry. But rogers did not look to me like he had the same edge he had last year last year. Rogers you could almost sense. He was out to prove something to the world. He was mad about the jordan. Love pick now. He just looks to me like like a yoga instructor the beach. It doesn't look like he's mad and trying to prove something wrong anymore. He looks like he could be my sense sensei. Yeah looks very zen. I don't know good great to talk to you as always safe travels and we'll talk to you soon. Sounds great. that's ross tucker ross tucker the former. Nfl offensive lineman host of the runs.

Cbs college football analyst and also coached washington and colorado. He knows the pac twelve and in other words and rick kind enough to join us. Explain the timing of usc's decision to fire. Clay helton makes no sense. Clay had been hanging on in what i call coaching purgatory for the last three or four years. I mean he was hanging on like that cat was hanging on in miami but to do it and week two is a little bit questionable because now at puts if you really think dante williams is a good coach you put him in harm's way because if he does well the players just like they did for mario cristobal and oregon are going to be clamoring. He should be the guy and is he really going to be the guy that you're going to go forward with that to me is a precarious situation. And if he doesn't do well you've lost one of your best recruiters. What is the upside to this. The upside of this is look. You're telling your constituency trojan faithful that you're going back to trying to be a dynasty you realize you were kind of fringe player along during this Last regime and that isn't good enough. Yeah i just wondered. If it was the on that short of a leash that it was and i know losing to stanford and losing at home being embarrassed and ucla is starting to rise a little bit. Like i don't know if the two are connected at all mike connecting the dots and they shouldn't be connected. I don't think that has much to do with it. I think it does have something to do with it. That they're getting ready for a new television deal and they want to signal to the television partners that hey we're going to be a different animal going back to the days of glory quote unquote listen when clay shelton went small ball when he hired cliff kingsbury then cliff off to the To the nfl so he had to stay within the same genre otherwise it looked like he was just hiring a name he goes with graham. Harrell you lose a lot of history with usc. I mean this is a place. for ron. carey. Anthony munoz keith. Van horn brad. Buddy don mos bar tony boselli. I mean allies. Avera tucker was a first rounder. But they average dan less than one hundred yards a game rushing three yards a carry last year. This this they used to be the bullies on the block. Going down the tunnel at the coliseum with those guys in there you're like oh my goodness. They went small ball and it was. It's not what you do. when you're dominant program. Well give me the state of this program you know. Usc needs to be honest with usc right. They they need to go back to financing their expectations. They need to go. And that's what mike bone said in this dismissal. Letter that he has given them added resources. They need now to go back. And use the power that they wield in the world of recruiting. I wouldn't even be shocked if they went and got an nfl. Gm given all the different ways to amass talent now via the transfer portal via. Go get a bunch of l. Deals in los angeles that are going to be readily available for kids that are going to become into the program and and go back to being dominant team. The name that. I'm going to throw out there and i don't know bourbons gonna like the nfl. But urban meyer is the guy that i would be circling. But i thought that they he was tops on the list but then it was vetoed by the higher ups that yeah yeah but the higher ups now have also now seen what happens when they don't have the guy that they need and urban spent hired already so if somebody else's hired him it now makes it easier for you to to. You can see that he's made amends blah blah blah. Could you see urban. Meyer a one and done in the nfl. Rick yes why. Urban meyer's control guy and i don't say that disparagingly he wants total control the. Nfl athlete is a different animal. And sometimes his way of doing things will fall on some deaf ears which will drive him crazy. Could you call urban meyer. Now for january you can make overtures. Yeah you can. You can go back channels and you know. Try to get to his people and see if there's any interest now. Obviously it's only one game in. Jacksonville has a complete change of course and becomes a close to a playoff team or a playoff team than than this would all go out the window. But if this has the kind of season that i don't think is a far fetched idea. Meaning that it's a three four or five win team urban. Meyer might say you know what. I'm more of a college guy okay. I'm going to throw out a name while we're throwing out names. Yes because urban meyer can't be one and done in the nfl lane. Kiffin keyshawn likes lane. Kiffin i think too big a leap for the trojan administration to go back there. I mean if you're going to do that. Why wouldn't you go back to sark right now. Lane kiffin has this kind of aura about him that somehow mysteriously he can build it but lane kiffin does it in the same way he small balls it. He's throwing it all over the place. Now they run the ball more than A does but i still think you need somebody like i. I tell you bill. O'brien o'brien might be in on this deal You has his kind of the year. I don't think you can sell that. Loop fickle yeah. I think that's the guy. Luke fickle but the question is can he recruit the west coast urban. Trust me urban. Where they're where they're going to try to butter their bradwell. We might as well go all the way to the top and go pete carroll bring pete carroll back we're at rick yeah why we're at listen and peak could probably do it but has seems pretty happy there in seattle. But i'm trying to understand. you know they. They don't keep talent in southern california. They're all these great quarterbacks leaves southern california how you may not you may not get him out of highschool right away but you can get them on the bounceback. That's what sonny dykes is done at. Smu he's got a bunch of dallas kids coming back to smu and their team is last year. They were the first time. Ranked since nineteen eighty-four the transfer portal has given you two bites at the apple now for these kids that are from local and like i said i wouldn't be surprised if you go and get the the new model i think is go. Get a general manager. That's going to help you look at all these different arenas to find talent and a master cells with and one thing. Usc's always been willing to do is let you get players into school so wait. Are you still bidder. Does that sound a little better. Maybe it was the fifty two nothing thrashing. As a matter of fact you were there. You were there as i was not for the whole game. No that's burt supply. I was on the other side line. Sess what we've seen so far. Ucla roughs up l. a. shoe at home and oregon goes on the road to beat ohio state Is this an anomaly. Or pac twelve for real. Those two teams are not anomalies. They're both physically built chip kelly. I've said many times should have been a service academy coach. Because of his affinity. For running the football to medically he's ahead of most in the run game and now he's got to bruising backs that kid from michigan chardonnay and the kid from duke brown both transfers again. Showing you that you can find ways to get players They're they're the real deal and at the quarterback can have any kind of year. They're going to be in this race. All the way to the end of the oregon was fantastic Beautifully done it may be more about ohio states defense than it is about oregon's team. I think we're going to have to wait and see Where they are defensively. They gave up six hundred yards of offense and still found a way to win because they were able to control it. I'm not sure there aren't some better defenses right now that they'll see later in the season in particular. Ucla who looked really good against lsu the worry in the pac twelve is the bottom half there. They only power five team without three oh in two teams and in particular washington because washington is vital to the pac twelve successes. Well always great to talk to you. make smarter.

Hour 1: Monday Night Thriller

"Morning it is time to get off with monday night mayhem. Great to the final play and there were more than one of those. Oh what a game. We will start there dan. Packers panic is the single greatest fear in green bay on the verge of coming true this week. We'll tell you exactly what it is and then the clock is ticking in chicago and the question is if not now then win. We've got all the answers as we get up with you starting right now on a tuesday from the seaport delighted. You are there and we are here. Grazziano and blocks worth and pool. Dan didn't know you had a lower half box. I didn't even know you existed From the waist down anyway the group is here and we had ourselves a thriller on monday. Night football good to the final droplets go as it was a big night game in the night. monday night. Football in las. Vegas ravens raiders. First time the raiders have the fans in their house in las vegas and they got to do a show fourth quarter. Lamar jackson was sensational. But with the ravens up. Seventeen ten sometimes dominique. He's going to do too much. Lamar jackson is sensational. It sometimes bets of problem. You've got to drop it off. Taking incomplete lands here there. He's diving trying to be superman. No question that comes out there the fumble but which gives the opportunity to the raiders and they would take advantage. Derek carr to give it to josh jacobs jeff. They play power. Football looking sod. He barely gets touched finished his strong power. Football by the raiders. That's the type of answer. They needed a moment. The ball the game at seventeen ensuing drive ravens answering back. Here's power the other way. Latavius liga finished right. They were pushing through driving through great pickup for them. He'll be better as season for granted. The ravens are up seven but hold on. derek. Carr darren waller. That's good for the touchdown. Waller at ten catches were tied at twenty four next ravens dr. dominique there's only one player maybe ever who makes this. Yeah it seemed like a designed. Qb draw with the mark accident. Open-field is one of the best if not the best thing. The watching football led both teams with eighty six yards rushing that one for twenty eight that sets up this justin tucker as quashes any kicker maybe ever forty two seconds left forty seven yards away. And it's good to the ravens. Take a twenty seven. Twenty four lead quite fund was just beginning. Lamar the raiders would have that much time and they would get daniel colson and this rain fifty. Five yards away jackie's got it on real just canada leg. Pipes it through right down. The middle would kick bingoing tied at twenty seven fans going crazy worrying overtime. Third and fourth of the raiders. Here's your ballgame. Brian edwards behind the defense dominique. We think it's the game winner. Oh man is so much pressure from the ravens and then we thought it was over. I turned off my tv. I was ready to go to sleep. But then my side of getting text messages attorney back all right. Because he's just short of the goal line. So the raiders. Get it at the one. And then they're stuffed on first down and here comes second down the rookie. Alex leatherwood call out by data lineman. But this is when it gets worse avert your eyes. Dominico off the helmet and it's intersex. I love pinball turnover. Bet gonna work for. John didn't lavin anthony a with the pits of the ravens takeover and lamar's got a chance for the second. I'm the clinical fumble. Yeah again the martin trying to do too much bite. You gotta get credit to the raiders. Down there d. Line was on all night like ports lights. It was a problem for raiders for the ravens offense. Because this was last night. I wouldn't go easing the raiders. Get the ball into field goal range. They're going to send carlson back out there for the game winning kick but old everything they take delay of game penalty. So they're gonna run call and back off of their again second and fourteen. Thirty one with the offense on the field. Here's how it actually ends. Derek carr say jones behind. The modern humphries was great all day but he got picked by zone guy in that situation. The tough way to end the game for the raymond but in amazing way to open the season with fans in the stands for the raiders. Cards mussa four hundred thirty five yards. The raiders. cana. Thriller jon gruden how we feel like i died in woke up and died again and it was like a cat. I had multiple lives tonight. I don't like playing like that. It was tough but again we. We did a lot of really good. Thanks to win that football game tonight. I gotta laugh out of every studio. But jeff i will start with you. Let's talk about them. From many. are the raiders. Good no what. He said the same thing we all. Have we win this game. He doesn't know we don't know like when you're looking at the game the d. line played out of their minds. We saw it time after time. Creating turnovers from lamar jackson but listen the ravens had scored. I think they averaged forty eight points. That's what hembo was telling me. The last three season openers d. Line give him a ton of credit that because they held him in there but how they want. I just don't get it resilient but just just impressive. Big deal hasn't been rough. The cleveland furlan number four. Pick in the draft. Two years ago healthy scratch last night while they have struggled to get things right on that side of the ball so that is a kind of with you but it is a little bit of a good sign again. Car throws for four hundred thirty five yards. Darren waller ten catches one hundred five yards so they had some good things last night. But it does feel like this game is war. Referendum on the ravens. We were waiting to see a lot of things about them dominique. And that's your team. You know them so well. First and foremost the evolution of the offense wanted. It looked like last night man. It's rough it's it's so up and down like an ekg watching them when they go out there. Because it's the most exciting thing you've ever seen and then lamar's holding onto it too long. I wanna see lamar. I was watching last night. The mega and dan orlovsky kept making the point. Take what they give you and lamar's gotta take those little snacks. He doesn't need to turn every play into a three course meal. Just go ahead to take that for that four yard tech down and lineup again. What every offensive lineman learned pee wee. You can't go broke taking profit. That's what we always say at the only thing we learned about quarterback play but for you have to take it. And here's the thing. I would say this. It's every play is breathtaking. But it's both ways you're excited and you're fearful that he's going to do something that needs to to do something to cost him the ball game so i'm with you dominate like when you think about this game and you think about where the ravens are. There's no timing with the receivers because nobody practice he was down so you can just tell they are behind the curve on getting their past game situated. You were making that point this morning in our conversation in our meeting. The the preseason which many people who. That's the time that those kinds of things get worked out. We shouldn't understate the importance of absolutely. I mean listen when you think about that you think about the timing this created. It's disrespectful to the game to believe that you can just walk out there and chemistry created in game because those guys on the other side get paid on the money to stop you from doing it so they have got to get back on the field and practiced together and it sounds silly but it is really reps. Change that it's not. It's not the ravens fault necessarily because you use the word. Poo poo the ravens. Do not pooh-poohed the priests that's true. They play they seriously play very hard. They come out beat up but they are into ready to go but they got hurt. They got some injuries because of partially because they play hard. So you can play both sides of this. I do you want to be healthy or do you want to be like playing at peak per season at that moment. No that's fair to us and the fans who pooh-poohed appreciate the but in this case it didn't look better they want to evolve that offense. Dan where do you think they are with that one weekend. That's the problem you can keep saying. Pooh-pooh preseason games for not practices have not been on the practice field together. Entire running back room turned over the last week. So i think it will take some time. Obviously they were in position to win the game so not like the sky is falling there but i do think there's a price to be paid for that. I think we saw something similar with tennessee yet. Right i mean that's a team. Where a lot of the veteran receivers haven't been on the field very much in training camp so it shows up and listen when we talk about development him not going lamar jackson not going under center. The talked about that was going to be a point of emphasis for greg. He's under center. I love that for his style of play because he turns the back to the defense. Any has the ball when everything stays out in front of you know people at home understand defensive lineman lawmakers everybody sees that mesh and it's very clean for the deepen when you turn your back with the guy as explosive as lamar jackson. It changes the dynamic of office. I would like to see them do that. More dominic. I want to ask you if this is a recipe for the mark jackson making it through a season. This is a seventeen game regular season. Now he led the team in rushing attempts. Last night he led everyone in rushing actually led all players in rushing attempts and yards last night. And he's back they're throwing it and to your point. He's back there trying to find a way to make hero plays and i don't blame them because i understand how he feels like if i don't get this done it's not getting done. Is that a recipe for long term success for a super bowl candidate. It has to be. That's the recipe that they've had ever since they switched to lamar jackson midway through his rookie season. That's the recipe and they're gonna lose players in in receiving core. Lose running back. Lamar jackson is the guy but he has to be smart with it especially with the online playing the way that it is when you can get four five. Yard line backup. The problem is. He is kind of intoxicated with his own greatness. Which we all are and evenings. Every play is going to be home so here we are. We think we know everything after one week of the nfl season. The afc north. The bengals win a game. The steelers win a game that we most people didn't expect them to the ravens and the browns are one. What do we say about that. Debate the two best teams in that division of the ones that lost this week and look mathematically one means less than it ever has before right there are still sixteen games so think about that but in terms of lamar hero ball. I think it will get a little better. Latavius worried just got exactly a bigger part of things. Moving forward the receivers that missed practice time and training camp. They'll be a bigger part of things moving forward. I think the ravens have reason for the ravens to win the division before the season began. We're one game. India still feel that way. Feel false god nervy when you did the marcus peters injury that scares me because they threw the ball all over the ravens and the second in the ravens have one way of playing and it is the blitz and put pressure on the secondary. And it's gonna be really hard for the ravens. Keep up with the browns receiving core jumping off board jeff. No it. Cleveland is by far the best team division by four. And they're sticking with listen. I respect it but we'll go back and watch this season. I'll tell you week one. I told you come to my side getting the browns boat the swim of this road together. Let's do this. I liked the browns to buy farm. Watch tj what. They're not going anywhere either. There was one unit in the afc. North that has demonstrated itself to be elite. And that is the steelers defense expected coming in and they showed it in week. One with that thought. Let's take our number one takeaways from week one which is now behind this dominique of all the things we saw in weeklong. What's your biggest takeaway man. I thought the afc west was incredible. I mean passing homes. Patrick mahomes no one's surprise by that that's unfair to him. The bar so high but those teams in that division were outstanding. I really enjoyed the chargers in herbert's great number. Six thousand president in the rivers raiders. So one last night which a win is a win. They're not going to count this as half a win at the end of the season. That's right plus the broncos stopping all over the giants on sunday. Jeff your number one take away from one of the nfl. See i'm staying in the west. But i'm going. Nfc west listen. All four of these teams are truly playoff-caliber football teams and we saw what they can all do san francisco the way they played. I know they let teams back in. But i'm telling you right now. The seahawks dominating the toll. The forty niners dominated all four of these teams. Have incredible chance at the playoff dan. Grazziano number one takeaway reports of the saints and steelers. Demise have been greatly exaggerated. Because i think they both have outstanding defensive and what the saints did to the packers on sunday was probably the most shocking resolve. The entire week has a writer. Mark twain would be proud of you for that. But i think it's one hundred percent steeler defense outstanding and we'll talk more about in the saints a little later one week of the. Nfl season is behind us. And so much is still the communist. We on the packers. Panic is the single greatest fear in green bay on the verge of coming troupe. Was why aren't the pairs making the chain. Why was the coach more impressed with the quarterback than anyone else seems to be. We're talking about it when you get up on.

Law to brent musburger dulcet tones and that game winning touchdown dominique the raven stay true to themselves they brought the blitz for the seventeenth time that time it bit them the raiders meanwhile only bits blitz twice all game they had sax on both of them including the critical overtime fumbled. That set up the winning score much. More on last night's thriller as we continue mean. Want back to sunday. Where the saints dominated the packers and jamie's winstons. I start since two thousand nineteen and he became the third quarterback since one thousand nine hundred fifty to throw five touchdowns in his first start with a team. Meanwhile the patrons couldn't run the ball brush for just forty three yards. He was by any team in week. One tied with nineteen sixty seven for the teams fewest in a season opener in the super bowl era. Aaron rodgers was just awful. You could zero touchdowns in multiple picks. He's just the fifth raining. Mvp the three zero touchdowns multiple interceptions in a season opener. And so dominic foxworth. How worried should we be about the green bay packers yeah. I'm not that worried because if the worst thing on your team is how. Aaron rodgers is playing. You'll be all right. He's going to pull it together the defense now. There's some concerns over there. I i have some experience with being across from all future hall of fame. Cornerback and that's what kevin king is doing right now. He's across from alexander. Who is incredible. There's a lot of pressure when you're over. There is real tough. And that's secondaries in trouble with what's happening on that especially after the championship game last year. Dominique said he wasn't that concern. You were shaking your head. I'm concerned listen. When you talk about the office depot. They got flat out dominated. Hey roger played played his worst game. I've ever seen i get that and i'm with with don on that. He is going to come back but their offensive line. Diaries still hurt corey. Lindsey left to the chargers and this line was rookie. Starting they just didn't gel and then defensively saddam's point there were massive holes. In that defense. You cannot win games in the nfl. If you can't protect the quarterback and stop the run. They did neither. I'm not worried about the playoffs because their division is weak. But you talk about tom. Nfc champ and the last dance. This is it like this. Ain't how you wanna go out. That's for sure. Yeah now worried about the packers. Look to rookie starting on the offensive line. They got that figured out but bacteria comes back eventually. Yes and look your point. The division looked terrible. I mean they are terrible. Detroit scored the most points gave up one. So none of those other teams have aaron rodgers. I think the packers will be fine but the offensive line. I can't tell you. How many teams. I've talked to the last two days. It said offensive line as their big considers. I'm glad you finally realize how important offensive line is that being said it is a big deal because this isn't just make the playoffs this is we got to win super bowl like let's emphasize the packers or to nfc championships. Back to back. Getting the playoffs doesn't check boxes. They gotta win at all to make this thing work. That's right and that. I think we cannot overstate because the biggest fear that this team could possibly have. I would think. Is that aaron rodgers at some point. This season figures out. We're not a championship team. Because we all know. His mind is already on where he's writing next year. The one thing keeping him focused and attentive. You would think is. We're trying to win a championship. Here players know breitbart so if he figures out there not a championship team. That thing could go side but that's not going to happen because the line is important but i mean it's not as born in secondary secondary players much more than line play. But what's more important about that is quarterback. Aaron rodgers is a really good quarterback. I agree the old line has problems. They were going up against a very good defense. I thought that was going to get destroyed. They hung in there considering the situation. The reason why aaron rodgers was bad was not because he was under pressure. No because aaron rodgers was bad. You the story of that game might actually be that the saints are a lot better than we thought they work and less about the packers. We'll see we'll tell on all of that but again just to make sure that we're clear here before we get to the pancakes rodgers will be fine. Roger will be fine absolutely. That's the last guy to worry about. And they're not worried about it that they are not okay they gotta clean some stuff up but they think they will wait and see again to everyone. Here's point The division certainly to say it's wide open for the taking the understatement of the week so far in the meantime time to hand out the pancakes chest that is a tuesday staple if utah the club. Go once pancakes. You'll pay three big cake. It is a morning of first before the first time ever jeff. Saturday is in our studio to hand out the pancakes. Nervous nervous looking for take all good. We're about to see the best of the business to start out with jason. Peters what was he doing last week. usc was fishing. What's he doing this week laying little people trying to find a little late at night man. Unbelievable play right here by him watching this and pyeho this nasty plate. Listen that's almost a forty year old man putting the hat on him the way he did. Fantastic one pancake from my man right there. Jason peters that listen start every season trip. Williams best left tackle in the game. You see you always hear swag goo talk about getting the club. perfect example. Throw him out the club. And you robin bob yards and hip. Toss that little man has shown to located in the dirt. Man putting him down fantastic play though about the club. Show swag that action. You love that play right there. We've show you why. He is the best left. Tackle kim game right now and we're going to finish it off my man. My lot got paid from the philadelphia eagles. His pockets or heavy. What way not day. Maybe maybe he gave it to pay grants like this. No boo smoke jacked up. Look at that place. You've got to love him on the congratulate the deal but that right there is the best part of your sunday pants reagan touchdown and so pretty go. Never ever get hit like that. Did you ever get thrown out about cloud. Hell no because the rules were different when a guy like that came at me i was going to be here but now they can't do that anymore. So now to get thrown out of the club. And i'm saying here next to my buddy. Oh champs. saturday talks next week. We need extra syrup. Outstanding sat him down as always all right. Take a short break. Everyone will catch their breath as we continue so much. Good from baker mayfield on sunday and then a complete disaster at the end. Is he good enough to get his team past the chiefs. We'll talk about it. Hand dan graziano. We've got a tough one four year from hembo today. Who is the only player to win rookie of the year. Lying for bill belichick head coach at the question. The answer is next. You're watching get up on. Espn she's hi. This is host of the meantime. Show featuring lenny. Every week we discussed the latest news and trends in and around the nfl were joined by analysts like former nfl quarterback dominique foxworth fat floors with insider and fantasy expert field. Yates players. Espn radio's mike. Go juniors also get run if you like xs knows analytics and probably too much dog. Talk money is dog. Then give it a listen wherever you get your podcasts. I've thought on that. Many passage jacksonville touchdown. Hollywood hits las vegas fourth quarters or not enough to decide he goes right there. You could see throwing off the fingertips. It ain't septic can't do. He's covered jones. Go victory over. Time for the raiders. And this celebration spell. What tonight you saw it and heard it. So many different ways here on espn and derek carr was the man in the middle of most of it. He turned the tide of this game because he turned it around himself. He was over six on the deep ball in the opening quarter finished the game going nine of thirteen for over two hundred yards on that throw including the final game winning pass. It was a thriller on monday night. Football we'll talk more about it as we continue. Meanwhile baker mayfield in. The browns thriller coming up just short of upsetting kansas city. On sunday. you saw it driving for a chance to win mayfield through. That was just over a minute. Left on the clock to seal the game and the win for kansas city coach. Kevin stefanski on his quarterback ultimately. He knows he has to take care of the rock and has to throw it away. There was trying to throw it away but has to find a way to get an incompletion For us again it. He's very hard on himself. East he works at this very very hard. So after what was. I think in many ways the most important game of the weekend. What was your number one takeaway from baker mayfield as you hear is coach talking about. He's good enough to take him to the super bowl bottom line that team. I say a very good football team. I understand the last throw. it's ill advisory. it's an immature. Throw from a young quarterback. It's first down. Take the sack. Live the play. The next day washed remaining for a broadcast. Because you'll learn about eating the ball. Sometimes a sack is the best way you can have an again. He's you're trying to make a playwright. They're trying to get out of bounds. Or if you're trying to the receiver that's debatable. I think he's trying to receiver. But when you look at that that game though showed me. He is good enough to lead this team to the super bowl. They had the cheese and they gave one away. They know that she snow it. I like where baker mayfield is. He's just going to get better. I agree thoroughly. In fact i'll take it a step farther. I if i were to say to you dominique. Those teams played each other in a best of seven that the browns would win. What would you say. We're having a patron home. Is that playing. And he's the best player he wrote to the right and then he threw it back across. The left is caught in the hills three critical mistakes in the fourth quarter of that game to lose but people make mistakes. No one's gonna play a perfect game. That's the one hang up on. What jeff is jefferson is the issue is. There's gonna come a time where you need banker to win you a game right now. This team is loaded. Yes they're going to have to win a super bowl with baker at quarterback on this roster but the problem is they're going to get in a situation which we saw throughout the playoffs last year. Where they're going to need somebody to step up for the bucks. Last year was on their defense. Those people stepped up and made plays for the for an excuse me the no. I was thinking about the chiefs the year before patrick mahomes multiple todd so the question is who is going to be that guy. There's a lot of guys on this team. It's normally the quarterback but it appears to me that baker mayfield is not going to be that guy. He's good enough to get you in a great situation. But someone's going to have to make some turnovers or make them key. Plays and punters gonna have to catch thank you very least. He's not going to be that guy every single ride. He's out the so he's not going to club like baker. Mayfield and lamar. Jackson could form a support group. But why can't we beat. Patrick mahomes this is not new for the ravens. They're watching the browns going. Oh yeah i know what you stacked up the browns roster next to the chiefs roster you would say the chiefs roster has more questions were sounds crazy. But that's the fact but they also have this incredible eraser. Yeah way matt. Patrick mahomes can overcome things and we have not yet seen that from baker at the nfl. Well that's why. The great quarterbacks tend to win all of the time because they can't erase all of those other mistakes and oh by the way. The browns did that without odell beckham this past weekend. We'll see when he's ready to play. Having said that i did want to give you just one one on the punter dropping the snap because this seems to bother me with great deal in our meeting this morning. Let me paint. The picture is the fourth quarter. You have it pundit. It's brand new season. You haven't punted all you do on the sideline the entire day is catch now too long. Snow ought not the entire day all of training camp. We're in melita real. We're in seventy seven. We're we're doing two minutes. What do yeah. And i'm not sure is but i would imagine he is. He is the holder on. Pat as well. So like you have to have i. I'm questioning. I'm just questioning got to learn how to play cover one. I gotta learn how to learn. Checks i gotta learn blitzes. You gotta learn how to catch kick. Yes that's in cake. Can't do this with the chiefs on the other side. Remind me. I used to cover the yankees joe. Torry derek jeter yankees. It'd be losing a playoff game by four runs. Somebody make an error and all of a sudden they'd be like six. And that's jesus drops the ball in the chiefs like yeah. This is great. May maybe they were actually something more to it. Than that. And i'll use golf is in analogy. People would tend to just make mistakes when tiger woods was involved and he just adds an element of pressure. Is it possible. I'm not trying to defend the country. You've got to catch the snap. Obviously but there is an element of we know. We can't make any mistakes. We have to be so perfect. We have to be even better. We normally are because mahomes is on the other side that causes some of those. I would agree with that for the op. The opposition offense right look. We used to feel pressure as high powered offense that if that offense on the other side was playing well we had two matches so that gives you anxiety that is true but a planner giving you that. Excuse for i mean it's like i mean for real man i mean that's it easier i could. I'm just telling you. If i'm a breath i would've lost mama. Just cannot have that again. The margin for areas. The chiefs is zero. We all understand that because of mahomes. But they had them. They had them and literally gave it away saying all drive shorter. Because it's not like you always stop them dirty. I just got it. Got it back to the gonna stop patrick. Behold patrick mos in the punter ted had he said that it would have been the greater soundbite is in. And that's an overreaction. Let's do overreact tuesday. Come on ghazi. I'm gonna make some statements you tell me if these are overreactions if someone said the browns our me league contenders would that. Be an overreaction horse. It's an overreaction. The last two games they've had been against the chiefs. Yes they lost them both but they totally feel like they should have won them. Both and i think they're gonna you know hopefully from their standpoint get them again and be better prepared to handle it definitely contenders one of the best overall rosters in the league next. Stop new orleans. If someone said jameis winston is going to get paid big time this coming off season. Is that at overreact. It is not an next off. Seasons quarterback market could be the most fascinating of all time. Mean rogers can be on at russell. Wilson jameis winston could be coming up a big year with sean payton and the saints paid should work on getting that locked up. Quick this stuff. T one more if someone were to say mack. Jones is going to win the rookie of the year. Would that be an overreaction course not. that's not an overreaction. It's almost always going to be a quarterback right. I remember when zeke elliott should won it and then they gave it to dak instead again. Don't get upset but that was true but yeah. He's starting from week one. He's playing with the patriots. He's integrate system as we've talked about. I think he's well positioned to be the front. What have we took it. A step farther. You guys were great athletes when your kids. I'm sure at some point especially jeff as big as you are. There was a time in your life that someone else's father playing against you demanded see a birth certificate. kim. I need to see mack jones birthday. That guys thirty four thirty four years old. There's no way in the world that guy's a twenty two year old rookie. No your heart rate just stays constant. Do not see him get rattled. The kid plays he is a baller and he's putting the situation that's only going make him look better. He will flourish in this again. He gave his team a chance to win against miami and unfortunately they fumble it but there is nothing that kid could have done to make that team better. He is a legit situation. He thinks fast. And you anticipate I'm not sure that in the process of the play he's computing all these quickly orbits before the snap is already thought through all the scenarios. Most guys they're trying to tread water they try to survive. They're trying not to get sacked. They're trying not to throw interceptions. He's already thinking past that and we're going crazy like they scored thirty five points of course sixteen point. But if you watched that game you saw veteran quarterback who can grow into something special. It reminds me of a guy named dak prescott who was really good. The patriots traded up for instead. He's waiting for him to fall last set right there. I mean it is remarkable. That's how the patriots the patriots again albeit coming off of a loss inside the division that does bring us to a pretty interesting little question ghazi on and they want you and i'll walk over there you again here. It comes giving me forty because there's only one player ever who won rookie of the year while playing for bill belichick as a head coach. And that tembos question for you mr graziano. Who do you think that could be. I honestly have no idea. I was thinking about offensive players to dominique says something about defensive rookie of the year now. I'm thinking defensive. I still don't know you're thinking the right way. It's gerard may also you were thinking correctly. It was a defensive humboldt. Hembo go with defensive rookies. i'm here. I'm not hard to read censure. I approve of that question. If he couldn't hear it. Hembo just shut up. And i probably deserved it anyway. Within one score a one scored only seven points down. He could actually beat you with a two point. Conversion as the season goes on meanwhile excited because he's from philly and the eagles got off to a very good start coming up fly. Eagles fly will dale and hurts host a playoff game this year. Can the eagles stunned the world and win the nfc east. We're talking about it. Plus the clock ticking in chicago the question is if not now then when we've got the answer coming up on. Espn the fantasy focus football podcast. He does in fact. still exist. Does been okay vaporize and some avengers thanos like now he has he does still exist. He walks the earth. He's a person he is. he's death exist. that's fair. why am i not surprised. We got new vendors reference. Worked into the podcast. I have no idea the fantasy focus. Football podcast check it out on the espn app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Back on get up and good calls brought to you by subway. He was a good call after his field goal. Unit wasn't ready in time for a game winning attempting overtime. Jon gruden made the call the stick with his offense and boy. Did it ever pay off about this there. A car zeh jones. Behind the defense game winning touchdown walk it. Off in vegas raiders. Comeback upset the ravens. Thirty three twenty seven. We're talking about it all morning. Long here on get up. We're also talking about this in chicago. Andy dalton started the game on sunday night and struggle posting a thirty five total. Qbr averaging just five point four yards per attempt. We did see a little bit of justin fields in this game. He flashed his three snaps. He went to for to ten yards and a rushing touchdown in his. Nfl debut first bears player with a rushing touchdown. his debut since matt forte. In two thousand eight bears get the bengals one eastern on sunday. It will not be easy as the chicago. Native for chicago may have thought entering the year. matt nagy was asked what dalton gives the bears. that feels does now without getting into the comparisons too much. I just think that right. Now when we're evaluating the andy that. I thought he did a good job of being able to put us in good situations and then using justin when we dead. Justin did well to okay so thought andy did a good job of getting them in situations. Jalen swag how do we is it. This yeah i don't understand. I don't get it and listen. Don't let score full you don't. They weren't in this football game. They were in this and they had three big plays on defense. They gave up there in this book. If you tell yourself that justin feels would not have given you a larger margin of error. Than andy dalton. You're lying to yourself. Do it thirty times. He don't for a little over two hundred yards an interception right now. Interceptions a tip get but at the end of the day. You're telling me justin field couldn't have been out on that field and done for you more than eighty and this is not any problem. I've listen. I think he's a good quarterback. I am telling you. Justin fields in that locker room. Everybody knows gives you a better chance to win it. Pisses you off because again everybody was like all you can't beat the rams will played a decent enough data. Could've i mean i. I agree with you but to play. Devil's advocate of been doesn't feels is a more athletic quarterback athletic quarterback for ten to hold onto the ball a bit long sure that offensive line is not absolute auto. You do not you need a guy who's gonna hit that back foot and get rid of it in order to keep your team healthy and keep the sax down and keep turning down you also are likely not and this is the thing i think that upsets you and upsets me like the people in the front office. Who are upstairs. That's what we call them. Because we were on downstairs right down the upstairs people are started thinking about man we gotta keep them healthy. We got a win for next year. We got to have a team of quarterback for five years from now. That's not how we think. No if you watch those games every week. Somebody's out for the season in his career so short and they're so important for us. That's a hard thing to be in the locker in. No at your coaches making a decision. That limits your chances of success. So what. i'm with you. I just wanted to be fair and matinee but you actually making what might be the most important point here and it doesn't mean it's necessarily the wrong thing to do dan. To what degree do the results of the games actually impact this decision. I don't know about results had chance to talk with nagy last week about this and says look. We had a plan when we drafted justin. We andy and justin know that and he said they've kinda gamed out scenarios throughout the year and how it might go one might be the right time. He's not telling me what those are. And i didn't get the sense that the results of games were really all that mattered. I think there they wanna see. They see justin fields in practice every day. He said he's improving by the minute literally. He still has work to do what more you want. Good process for For your team. You want a good process at cs martin well-thought-out in the to think about all contingencies what you want. I don't like it as a player. I understand the palach. The point is what i know is saying and what jeff say are two completely opposing points of view. You're talking like a player in the locker room. And i get it. That's the way you were talking like someone with a long term view of this. Which is what they picture to have the franchise so you think matt nagy will be there next year then if this process works out i don't know but here's my thing right. We talk about guys. Coaching for their jobs. The right thing to do is not to coach prior job. Like as long as you're the head coach of the bears you got to be the head coach of the bears and do the right thing for them and if you want to be an organization. Builder as opposed to a sunday coach. I i think that's that movements there when you draft a quarterback general manager the only part of this sort of rubs me the wrong way is that we act like it's either or is it like the one or the other and that both can't be true which is to say that putting just fields iron field right now because it gives you the best chance to win right now somehow automatically is in the lesser of the best interest for them long-term. Both of them can be true. He might be their best option right now and it might not stone is development or whatever. It is their word i mean. That's my argument. Generally is think quarterbacks learned from being on this island. I tend not to believe in that and take a year to learn how to read defenses or learn how to identify the mic. Like you get better by playing. That's how you get better. So i like the idea of having justin feels. Yeah go in there and get better zip. This that wilson is playing. He ran for his light. Yes against the panthers. Right good defense by the carolina panthers. Everybody knew it was a mismatch up front. Justin feels going to face the same thing and next year. It may not be any better job. Josh was better by the end of that game to exactly he learns right. When i got to roll out window a half to eat. It went to step up in the pocket. You don't learn by most in football you gotta be out there to get going. I guess my take away from the conversation was that they have a plan that they made a sober time right in the off season. And they're not gonna let results of games changed that plan and if it turns out to be a bad one. Then i'm sorry pays a pro. Yeah exactly sometimes when managing makes a decision in a sober time all the fans need to get drunk as we're entering week one. The cowboys had the best chance to win the division according to our fbi after week one despite a loss their chance to win the division increased by twelve percent the other big riser in this the eagles who doubled their chances to win based on them being the only winners in the division so dominique. Let me start with you here. Whatever it is you thought of this division going into week one. How if at all has it been affected by the results. I made a mistake. And i picked washington. Dc and. i love that defensive line. And i thought the defense is going to carry them. And i was a little bit excited about. Maybe they're going to be able to put some points on the board. And then i watched the thursday night game and there's one man in this division ariza man in his division man. There's a lot of other young men in his division. And that man is brain dakota prescott dakota terrain prescott knows. Rain rain got. Yeah yeah. I got it right. The first time he was raining all over the The bucks and he's going to rain all over everyone's parade in the division. I got them winning it just because he's so good you don't have any you. What's that greenie to debate debate. All the conversation fell in love. Nah understand this. Was the cowboys division from the jump if every team plays to their ceiling if every team in that division cowboys are the best team. We're counting dak is a difference maker and i'm telling you it is happening. You're seeing the guys around him. they're going to build. And here's the other thing too. Eagles will be the second best team in that division. It's bill overtake washington. Their offense and defensive lines are going to separate them from the rest of division because so few guys are out there. I think that puts them up in the group. How about jalen hurts. How the eagle we did we not sit here friday. What's the monday headline going to be. Guest jalen hurts correct. I said four touchdowns the only had three missed. Yeah the look i. I think they're good. I mean there's only three who'd offensive line of holy grail relationship. They have one of them. They have an advantage and the cowboys offense wind is having issues right. Lie account suspended out. So yeah i wins. West pentecost was plated ceiling. That be clear. You're jumping off the washington football team bandwagon off of respect. I'm off of it. I Ravens are you staying. I'm saying whatever never on it and just for that. I'm not falling off of it under the injury to the quarterback is obviously a problem. That is an issue it. You're a jets fan bro. You're built for abuse just ri- with three two quarterback who's never made the playoffs hate them for making the playoffs connecting. It is ironic that you have an aging quarterback as a hip injury. But that's what it is going to be out like eight weeks. But i still believe when all of a sudden the washington football team will win the nfc east. I'm definitely not backing off of that much. More as we go swag is on the way. The let me run the basis through baseball yesterday. We're down the home stretch here. The surprising san francisco. Giants are the first team to clinton playoff spot. This year. they hit four home runs. They beat the padres. Nine to one at san francisco's first trip to the playoffs. Since twenty sixteen. Meanwhile drama at yankee stadium last night to injure leading by three runs in the eighth. Aaron judge ties with that one. Swing of the bat sends them into extras where gary sanchez. That's a walk off. Base hit yankees. Get a six five win over the twins in toronto vlad guerrero junior hit forty five home runs for that passes shohei ohtani for the league. Lean jay's beat the raise eight to one guerrero nine home runs in his last fifteen games. Toronto now in sole possession of the first wildcard spot in the american league and in seattle mitch manager for the mariners three-run homer and his third straight game seattle holding off a late. Red sox rally to win it five. Four sox have now bought six of their last eight games that slide puts them tied with the yankees for the second wildcard spot and new york has two games at hand. Despite that fan graphs still gives the slight edge the boston to make the playoffs over the yankees. In ten days the two will begin. What figures to be a crucial game series in boston and speaking of baseball on next thirty for thirty once upon a time in queens is a four part series. The first two parts premier tonight eight eastern with an unprecedented look into the wild nineteen eighty-six in their ride to a world series. Win parts. three and four. We'll be wednesday.

This is going to be the general manager. Boom stir dom okay. Because i feel like we are very very close to a major shift in this town with several general managers and we could be seeing a bunch of new guys coming in. So i wanna see what booms predominance thinks and boom saddam's has been very very good at predicting these things recently. So what boomer says you have to pay attention to because he has his finger on the board of the teams in this city like nobody else all right all right so the question is this by the time that the team that i mentioned starts their next regular season will this general manager. Still be the general manager. Do you understand what i'm saying. Don't get a name and you gotta tell me by the time that they start their next season. Will this guy still be the general manager. You're ready i'm ready. I'm going to start with a big one. Dave cattleman boom saddam. What you say so. I cannot give you a fifty fifty proposition. You wanna yes or no. I wanna yes. I would say for dom start half assing his predictions so i don't have as my predictions but we're all. We're week one. So i still believe that. The giants are going to be a good team. I am not overreacting to week one. Okay so therefore the way that i feel right now at this moment i would say yes. Wow dave gettleman is good. Because he's going to have another draft is older guy he made. Just wanna walk away. Well that i can't. I can't make a decision. You're asking me whether or not he's going to be fired or not step down. The is what you're asking me. Basically and after week one. I'm not going to overreact around. I know guys like you like to stir the pot and to get people fired timeout out. Time i just want getting bombs outta here get out of here. Get that one out of here. This guy sucks. That is true. I mean that is true. But i don't. It's not like i'm actively trying to get somebody fired. What it is is a reality of this city. That if you don't get job done you're gonna get moved on from so so here's the here's what i'm going to tell you. We have a long way to go in the nfl season. There are a lot of things that are still going to have to happen or are going to happen. I should say and by the time we get the week ten. We will have a much clearer. View as to where these teams are and who's responsible for either the success of the team or for the failure of the so you tell me that the giants by week ten or two in all yeah eight. I'm talking about right now right now. I'm still believing in the giants. I'm still up believe that they are a good team that they will be a midland team. That somewhere they will fall somewhere between seven ten and ten and seven so if they're on the positive side of five hundred they get a while quarter. They win the division. Of course. they're going to keep the band back together or together. And dave gettleman will keep his job all right. The first one boom says dave gentleman stang the second one really is in general manager because the two general managers that were brought in are basically not going to be around one's already gone and the other one's not going to be here in zach scott so i'll give you this one defacto. Gm team president. Sandy alderson by the time that next year starts opening day for the mets will sandy alderson. Alderson still be with the new york mets in his term position president. I would say yes. And i think they'll go out and hire a big name. And maybe that is theo epstein. Why would have big name. Gm wanna be working under sandy alderson. Can you answer me that. The only the only reason why. I would think that that would be the case is because regardless of what you may think or what some met fans may think. There is a healthy respect in baseball for sandy alderson. There is believe it or not. I'm not disagreeing with that. But the job he has done while coming back has been poor. It's been a mess. There's no question about it. But that again i. I still think that it will be a big name. Gm i can't imagine scott is gonna come back as the gm now shape or form and maybe it is the thing but again they gotta do their due diligence. Something happened out there in chicago. You know everybody left and you know and things happened while. I believe theo is there but i'm not sure if he was part and parcel to any of the decision making that was going on around some of that stuff and if it you know he may not want the scrutiny if he gets offered this job think about that for a second. Yeah i don't know. I the whole scrutiny thing. I think that anybody worked there. Salt takes those jobs and then deals with that thing puts the nose to the grindstone and gets done. I the one thing i will say. Is that the red sox cubs. There's a there's a romantic fielder. Those franchises because of the ineptness of those franchises for as long as they were left until got there and strong fan bases have right. Exactly i. I don't really feel like the mets are in that category. No but winning in new york is winning in new york and as we saw in the eighties as we saw in two thousand and as we saw a few years back in two thousand fifteen. Hey we wearing the same shirt. But you've got a logo on yours. And i don't have one on mine because i think that's what's going on here. I have a us open shirt on. I think that is the peter. Millar pullover that i gave you from sherwin williams if i'm correct as yours. Peter millar as well as peter malone unbelievable him on is the us open. But it's the same exact thing. Same color same zipper. You just have the us open logo on my mind is navy. Blue or navy navy blue same thing looking at the camera and you look like it's gray. That's not greats navy blue okay. I'm telling hundred percent navy blue. That is incredible you. That's what you wear on the golf course. Well yeah gonna cough shirt underneath. There was a little chilly this morning. But i think it's going to warm up here real golfers wear. That's what i have on. Peter millar real golfer situation. Yeah yeah look like a golfer today. John daly john. John daly golfer. Yes all right. So you think that. Sandy's coming baggy the dave gentleman's coming back crazy but i think but but i think that's going to be a new general manager for the mets. Okay but you think that saying he's still going to be in the organization which means rising. I kind of feel like i told you a healthy respect for him his background. I'm not saying that. He got things right since he got back here. But maybe steve cohen. Because you know things happen. Row relatively quickly with the mets once the sale went through all of a sudden boom boom boom taking care of now. The steve cohen has been around and he's been around the team and he sees how it operates. Changes are going to be made. There's no question all right. What about the last one. Because i think the other guys staying are safe brian. Kelly looks yeah. He's he's staying even if they missed the playoffs he stay. He's not going anywhere. This would be a failure of mammoth proportions folks if they end up missing the playoffs you know any staying is it are the injuries to his pitching staff really his fault. I mean they're pitching staff has just been brutal their their bullpen. Maybe maybe over us i. I don't know what to tell you but their bullpen has been a disaster their starting pitching is a fragment of what they thought it was going to be. I mean you can only do so much and he's constantly always trying to find you know find different people plug people in you know. Look what he did last year. Look what he did or two years ago. Look what he did last year. Look what he did it short and everybody felt like this year's trade that line. That was a win because they added lefty bats to lineup hsiang-pin if they missed the playoffs then what i think it shorts a disaster but when you look at it on paper you look at all the injuries that they have had in their pitching staff which is basically killed him just killed. So what are you gonna. So what are what are the but his dad. His fault is it. Aaron boone's fault. Is he going to get fired if they don't make the playoffs i don't it doesn't do anything. How steinbrenner does not come across to me as is dead. Casement has been there forever. This isn't some sort of completely impulsive decision by a crazed owner. This is a guy was watched. His team underachieve almost every single year. Outside a twenty seventeen. I'm just going by what i think. The relationship is and i think there's a healthy respect between brian cashman and hal. Steinbrenner and hal. Steinbrenner is not a guy that's a quick to pull the trigger. And i think he's been here since the nineties. That relationship goes way way back. And you can't discount that this is not like we're kicking somebody to curb. They'll somebody's going if they don't make the playoffs. I was fire manager. Really do if we are to believe. And we talk all the time about the manager is just a mouthpiece for the general manager and the analytics guys the what is firing the manager. You're gonna do nothing adam. Just get another guy to do the same stuff that dr same people want but all it will do will placate the fans that have this negative feeling towards the team that somebody is being held responsible for it. And it's not fair to boone. Either unless you say that aaron boone is overused the bullpen. I you could say that. I mean you know. Look look at the problems that they've had. I mean it's just i'm a jeep and i'm not saying that every team doesn't have this but you know the los angeles dodgers went out and got trae turner and max scherzer. They knew that. Trevor bauer was gone for the year. So would they go out. They replace it potential hall of famer with an actual real off. Famer max scherzer and he has been unbelievable since the dodgers got him on the yankees. The yankees didn't do that. But the dodgers did and you know. That's that's one of the reasons why the dodgers are able to stay toe to toe with the san francisco. Giants is because they added those two players. I'm sitting here disagreeing with all three of those. I think that there is a strong chance that all three of them are not here next year and the reasons why would be that the yankees missing. The playoffs in this year is a huge deal. And maybe it's time for something different. I mean how many times you talk about roster construction the way. This team is built a losing in the playoffs. The better teams like the raise. The red sox in the astros like maybe. It's just time for something. Different there if they miss the plans. This isn't like going to the loser going the lds and losing this would be. I'm talking about if they missed the playoffs. Which is a strong possibility as far as his first year with sandy. One of the main reasons we heard with sandy alderson being brought in or brought back to the organization was to have that vote. Go the way. That steve cohen wanted with the other owners. Which was we're going to put in a respected baseball guy in that front office. So steve cohen doesn't go crazy and start spending a bunch of money and then making everybody else in the league upset okay so you had that one year were sandy was there. It has been a miserable year. I mean it's one misstep. After another with hiring with controversies with jacob degrom and the press conference with his elbow. it's just been it's been bad. And steve cohen. If he's build what. He was billed to us which was basically a guy is not going to put up with that garbage is probably gonna save. I'm moving on. I'm hiring the best general manager out there in that general manager is not gonna want sandy alderson breathing down his neck. So that's why. I think he's gone. The gentleman one is tough for me. Because i still. I can't just flip flop on the giants that quickly either after miserable performance But i mean you know if they lose thursday night they are in deep trouble and if they're in deep trouble at owen to with the way that the schedule turns i if that's the team that misses the playoffs john. Mary is not gonna put up with that. And then they're they're going to have a new general you know. The amazing thing is is that seventeen weeks season and you and i as football fans and somebody saw two guys who have been around a long time watching this league. You know we don't it it because of the way preseason is laid out in a lotta guys do not play in preseason which is unfortunate because i do think playing in preseason is important and i can see chiefs have proven that their Their performance against the browns week want it looked like patrick mahomes at stepped right off the super bowl field right onto the field and ready to open this year and he did that because he played in the preseason. That's why i think it's important. But the other thing too when you get emotional about these things in these teams and you think about people that get fired and all that other stuff you also have to think deeper to the relationships behind their job. Titles so to me brian. Cashman is like engrossed in the yankee. Family he is a yankee family. He is like the the sun. The third son for george steinbrenner. That's how i feel and think how looks at him. As like a guy that i can trust run our franchise and as long as our franchise is making money and selling out and we have the back pages because we're the yankees and were always making moves and we're always trying to better ourselves. You know then you know. That's why i don't think he's going to go. It sounds like they're settling for mediocrity though. That's what it sounds like. I can't. I can't sit here and tell you that Brian cashman is ever settled for mediocrity. I don't. I don't get that feeling. I always feel like he is always off talking about what you said about the steinbrenners as long as we're making money and we have the back pages and i can trust to run the franchise regardless of winning championships. Then we're happy to be the yankee's right but at the two for me. It's it's basically the moves that he makes the trade deadline and everybody knows that the team was flawed coming into the year because of the lack left-handed bats. We all understand that. But then again you know you got cole was been in and out of the lineup. You've got a you got a bullpen. That's been overused. You got guys that are hurt you got guys that you're counting on star games that i've never even heard of before. That shouldn't even be up here pitching. But they're here because of all the injuries that they've had and that is a significant part of of what's going on with the yankees now. I don't care what anybody says. But it's it's a bigger picture situation which is are we. Are we going to see garrett cole tonight. Yeah absolutely all right. So he's back on amount. Go and this. And by the way there two and two in their last four games that were part of this thirteen game run now so they they now have nine games left in this particular part of the schedule where i believe they have to go eight and one seven and two from this point. I'd like to see one i'd actually. I'd see them go into well. Of course i think everybody would ezra and this is where they need to make make make the move ahead as Geo i'm with you on this. I'm a huge yankee fan. I go to Punching games with the group of guys tomorrow split the yankees have won one division title in nine years and one penny eighteen years and boomers talking about the family of the yankees. Well where's the important is in the family. The entire core hates his guts. There's nobody around there. He should've brought in david. Cone is the pitching coach. Chapman doesn't need to know about. It's been raining. Needs to know how to pitch when he when he doesn't have to a stuff he's gotta go one division title nine years and if he's not gonna go put yourself down there the jersey on in call the shop boom boom. I liked but he's not the guy who decided to put an opener in the playoffs. Two years in a row in italy in elimination games that bring back tory one year like the white sox with that is going to happen. I don't think the return of joe tores something that is in the cards but if they're just gonna fire the manager in go back with the same philosophy. You're talking about a hobby bias to the yankees beat. Hobby buyers is another one of these guys. It's all or nothing. The yankees having gonna guardian. I'll tell you one thing. He is exciting. Any any can play baseball and he can play shortstop and obviously putting gleyber torres. The second base tells you something. Last night i mean i they are reacting. You can't sit here and tell me that they are not reacting. I mean luke. Voight was injured. The whole first half of the season. I think three stints on the i l. and then they trade for rizzo because of it you know. So he's he's trying to actually make the right moves now. Gallo starting to hit some home runs now. Result has had the covert thing and he's had his moments and he's a really good defending the defensive first baseman and now they're moving glacier over to second base tells you all you need to know that they're finally starting to hold some of these players accountable and that's and that's a good thing and i think that you know maybe shake things up but they're right there right there to the wildcard. They are right on the the cost of that. And that's why these next nine games. Yes of course we know you got to win. As many games you can towards the end of the year but i mean i just i don't know i mean this has been a crazy year for them if they are on the outside looking in. That is i mean. There has to be some sort of accountability. At some point for the yankees. Who were supposed to be the team. That should be winning championships. And it's not just this year. It's getting beat by the red sox in eighteen. It's getting beat by the astros in nineteen. It's getting beat by the raise last year. And now you're gonna tell me that and you've gotten almost worse. The last three years you go from aol c. s. to a. l. d. s. Two out of the playoffs. And it's like. I mean i don't know and we're just gonna come back do it again reset through it again. All right great. Yeah i hate to say it. But i think yes. Millions of americans are using good rx to save on their prescriptions. Here is teri story.

And jon meacham studio available now on odyssey and wherever you listen to your podcasts. The morning show with boomer assias and gregg giannotti boomer and geo will start the where the day began and that was with a two o'clock game at the stadium. This was you know. A quick turnaround for the yankees. They played sunday night at city field had the makeup game with the twins and for much of this game they were trailing they were down five. Nothing i take it to the eighth inning. Because brett gardner is on is up with a man on bass. Aaron judge looming and he winds up walking to where the pitch questionable bail. And susan certainly tells you. That has the pitcher tyler. Duffy was not thrilled. Teletubbies is furious and looking at that again. He had a right to be curious. Comfort right at the top absolutely wasn't strike did not get the call. He did not shut up when they came back from break. We found out that the manager was not pleased. Either bracha just truck is a clipboard and went down the stairs so he had plenty of your say. It was obviously arguing about that strike. So he is out of the game he was and the reason why was because they were worried about judge tying the game and guess what happened now. Here's the to one swung on hidden underneath right-center it is high as far out of the tie. The game at say judgy and blast shopping by john. Sterling the call. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah for the yankees for sure and then in the tenth inning was interesting because you know a lot of fans call up one of the replace small blah blah. You know they got a runner. Second start the tenth and gio or shell tries to bunt them over and fails cannot wind up striking funding gary sanchez. The game winning hit and the yankees win six five in ten to eighty and sixty four. Here was aaron judge with susan after the game. Lots of credit to gardner three to count up into the top of the zone. And and that's what he does seems about. We've got a lot of guys on here. The discontinued a grind and they get the win and a much needed win for sure. Aaron judge with bruce beck afterwards the importance of that big dinger. Did you know the importance of your at bat in this ball game knowing what's going on in this this race to make the playoffs did you feel that. It'll i don't believe that. I do not believe that. Of course we know on has to know. Here's his manager. Aaron boone judge. Really something he's able to get a pitch look like up up and then kind of hit a no doubt her in there to right center but yeah So now with this win the yankees move. A percentage point ahead of boston for the second wildcard spot. You got yanks orioles tonight on the fan at six twenty five garrett cole is back. He takes on alex wells. As for the mets. They opened up a series really a crucial series saint louis if they want to be taken seriously and while i think we can forget that they wound up losing along the way also losing. The umpire almost lost his face. Hits went back to the middle sosa was left. Nice place better rob. Nobody throws it away. Hits the all hit the force base on pyre jet of all no time right in the side of the face. I'm sorry. Why do i laugh. Why do i laugh because it looks like an old blooper video it except that it happened last night in real time. And he's okay. I believe he's okay was bleeding. But i think he junior valentine was okay so you're laughing at it because it looks funny but it's not funny but i mean the amazing is just how far off first base. I know the throw is. I think the reason why it's funny to me is how focused he is on first base. Which is what. He's you know he's doing his job and he's just completely blindsided by this thing. Everybody laughs at this sort of parts right inside an alley. I mean look at look at the base. He started bleeding pretty quickly and the man that that happened on one. You guys man ambulance your own plan again. I quit this. You're one hundred percent. Right would have god and people would be laughing cheekbone for shore anyhow when things taste funny kind of i just saw neither screening in When things did pick off saddam slide drilled out to left center field back in the gap goes mcneil near the wall here. Paul goldschmidt was not a goldman anandas. So yeah seven. Nothing was the final score. Is the cardinals. Just buried the mets goldschmidt along with that home. Run at an rbi single. Here's lose row. They got a couple of guys on in the eighth but they did. Nothing and sal didn't interrupt this time the three nothing ballgame And when he was in range and we have that momentum in the eighth inning like you could see the energy like it is all time and and They did nothing with it. And then saint louis put up four runs in the ninth. Marcus stroman and jake woodford going tonight. Also from baseball the blue. I just saw the home run. The highlight of the vlad. Guerrero is no. It's more like a laser shot. The juice gets over the fence in a blink. And i didn't realize sue alec manoa pitched eight innings of one hit ball with ten strikeouts in that game so blue jays beat the raise. Eight to one and cbs. Sports network is showing the line. Drive down the left field line that gets out literally in half a second so as forty fifth home run of the year. For vlad guerrero one hundred thirteen point nine miles an hour for you. Exit vilo freaks. The pretty quick for sure that stint towing stanton like giants beat the padres nine one as they have won eight straight and they clinched playoffs bob before the football. I wanna play this. Because i it was funny so russell westbrook released. Did you see this. He used photos and a video of him. Walking around and address and weird boots. Okay already come on no real for real. Yeah no he's the mvp right sure. It looks weird and so some had reaction to it including the former number one overall pick in the nba years back. Kwami brown hall. Kwame brown is for people who don't know. Kwami brown's become quite a bit of an internet stars. This unfiltered takes scott unfiltered. So he opens up about about twenty s seeing you bite the apple and win like wrestle rest work or whatever. His name is only one strong. He says really nothing new here this time in address so i don't know why people wear dresses. So maybe this is what went on and oklahoma city. Maybe this is why kevin durant wanted to get out of there though. He's not impressed by westbrook. Jc your leaders the give them to you and just because it can jump high and play basketball not neri not not no. We don't won't be walking around. The goddamn streets would address on as heterosexual. The mother gar. And he's so calm casual what he does. He's just giving his takes on life. God be the one thing he is correct about. Is this russell. Westbrook has been pushing the boundaries with his attire for many many years so wearing the dress and the mother bleep and boots. He's not really something new. He says address. Whatever he doesn't care what your sexual preferences this just basically looks weird is what he says. Now go cousin gate. I'll give gate girl. Female causes male causes. It don't matter about that but when you say you're a heterosexual male and that's what you do you and that's my opinion. A very progressive take kwami. Sounds like we're going backwards a little bit trying to move forward quantity brand you. The bleeping boots man in summary. I'll just give you one more. So i played this last one. I mean that's the best way. I can put it in summary here. This is the last part. i believe. There's one that worries me though because of the way. He pronounces a certain word. I don't think this at though is planning nita's just not talking. That weird round is weird is kind of what be from. He'll books in a miniskirt man doesn't like the address the best clip. I'm not playing because he pronounces a certain. I know what he's saying. Yeah but he says it like it's straight curse word and if i- bleeped out it makes no sense. Okay so i'm not gonna play the other one but Yeah he's not. A big fan has apparently not. Did russell westbrook respond to this time. I don't know i saw this on twitter. I is this really him. And for sean is now. He's been doing a couple of these video. So what what what. Precipitated us what what made him do this. I guess he was just bothered by the russell westbrook photos and the video. I don't know if you went to the met gala. I don't know what he was doing. But i saw it. He's in a white dress and he's in like very odd looking boots. I don't know how else to say. It was it the macos that were was wearing tax. The rich that yet Dress right exactly. I don't know go out to a really fancy party afterwards. And peter luger's and wearing a shirt that says eat vegan but anyway so i don't know i think that was the impetus as you say for it. Yeah and kwami brown. I think there was what made him go to the internet. And get this fame now for ripping everybody. I believe it started with that. Podcast that matt. Barnes and stephen jackson did with somebody and they told a kwami brown story where they were all laughing about him because of course she had a number one overall miserable career and became the butterball jokes and everything else and he responded like that to what they were saying and then everybody thought was funny and and now he's continued to take on old and there you go goes after his former players. Yeah no doubt from pineapple express studios brown. He tells it like it. Is i think him on a plane as and it wasn't a great career number one overall pick. He played his ten eleven years though his career that he was billed as the next big thing and that didn't work out. No question raiders the ravens and overtime thirty three twenty seven thrilling fourth quarter. Derek carr the game. Winning thirty one yard touchdown fast zeh jones daniel carlson the game-tying fifty five yard field goal in the final seconds and they tied the game up a couple of times there in the fourth and darren waller ten catches for one hundred and five yards and a touchdown. Good for that guy. I mean we've gotten used to this. But he was someone who had major personal issues substance abuse issues. He was his career was hanging in the balance and he came back cleaned up his life. And he's now one of the best tight ends and football. I mean your gruden said it's one of the best players ever coached. Yeah i mean it's just that that is a is a great story and i don't think enough people know it but he really was on the verge of his entire life collapsing and now he's like one of the great players in the game here. He was figured it out on offense gotten a motive like no we really moved by will and our timbo can really dictate We'll never we wanted to so it was just that clicking mentally. I clicked mentally all right. Derek carr foreigner and thirty five yards passing couple of touchdowns in the wind couple rushing touchdowns for josh jacobs and a coupla fumbles for lamar jackson.

The morning show with boomer esiason and greg naughty boomer and geo we come in friday morning jay to the giants or the washington football team man. It's already a pressure point game in russia ready. So how about this. How about this Watching the tape of justin. Herbert just once how he played and everything. The la chargers converted fourteen of eighteen third downs for first downs fourteen of eighteen. I've never seen that. That's insane you know. I was watching film myself Yesterday boomer on the game. Gotcha your house Doing all twenty two. In the afternoon. I was like A couple of minutes myself. So you know we take a look at the sole twenty two with the washington football team that left tackle for the The chargers really really good and he neutralized chase young and he was awesome. I forget his name already. Actually i didn't look at the twenty two so much tweets about him. But that's what the giants are going to need out of their offensive line. And the odds are that they're not gonna get that type of performance which scares me. But i'm not gonna flip flop. I am not going to have a flimsy giant steak. I'm going to say that it'll be the washington football team in taylor heineke. That'll be owen two on thursday night. That's well. I think both both washington and the new york giants will be improved even though it's only four days removed from last on the field but there were a lot of mistakes that were made. There's no question about that. There always will be most of the time. Tackling early on in the season is not very good. There have been a ton of missed tackles but when you watch a justin herbert throw the ball man. It is you could tell i. Mean he's just a special special player and there's a lot of coverage that he was going against and he just threw some some lasers. And when you have that kind of success rate on third down as i mean it's ridiculous so maybe daniel jones could look at that film and be pretty confident going in. I thought as wide receivers actually sterling shepherd and can't eat out colladay golladay. I thought played really really well. On sunday i really did and so. He's awfully building up some confidence with those guys. Because you know they are players Those two guys are legit players. Yeah i mean in this was part of my take on. The giants was at kennedy. Golladay was gonna add a in element to that offense that they hadn't had and it's also adding it to a group of guys that are very talented. There's a lot of really good players on that offense now. No one thing that's going to be really interesting to watch is saquon barclays involvement. This week. i mean is you're going to be a guy that actually runs the ball in his a running back or they're going to have a running game is he someone. That's you're going to set up a screen pass form. He's going to be someone that you can get out in space. Throw the ball to or is he just going to be a guy who's occupying space. That's coming off an acl injury that they're trying to work back like he. The dynamic is you're gonna play. Yeah the dynamic right essentially is going to play. I mean the dynamic player in which the giants drafted n had in his rookie season. Who sat next to us down in atlanta with pepsi. Nfl offensive rookie of the year award. Is that guy going to be a factor for the giants this year. And i thought yes. That's another reason why i've liked the giants it with golladay in slayton and shepherd in ingram and and young joker and barclay. I mean they got plenty of weapons. But they've got a quarterback has got a lot of question marks around offensive line and als- out of the studios on bringing it up an offensive line's got a lot of questions around. So those are the biggest issues with the giants and by the way that defense. I mean it goes without saying has got to do a complete one eighty because there were topped defense last year. They were they look like a bottom three defense on sunday. I mean you cannot lose back to back games to teddy bridgewater and taylor heineke. You just can't you can't you. Just can't i mean. Patrick rams unit. They got lauded last year. Patrick grandma's lauded. They've got to clean up the mess. They gotta get better tackling. I just you know it's. It's such a short turnaround that you know. They'll be on the train tomorrow to washington so they practiced today. They'll have a probably a walk through tomorrow. I would imagine maybe some time a walk through on thursday afternoon before the game and they're playing and you know hopefully they show up and they get this bad taste out of their mouth but the same thing can be said about the washington football team. They're going through the same thing. Yeah and this was a team that she made the playoffs last year and they came in with expectations as well and their defense is in should be one of the best in football so having this this really is a. It's going to be a pick up the pieces type of situation on friday for somebody. It's a week to pressure point game week to pressure. Point is not a show what you got game. No it's shows what you got spot. The giants failed miserably with the show. Us what you got spot right so it's not that so. This is the fact that it's a short turnaround. And i remember talking to joe judge when we had him on about this. It's it's a blessing curse. Yeah i look at it like it's a sure we could. You look at it like okay. You got some more time on the back end okay. There's like all right. Well if they win then it's a nice little reprieve early on and it's almost like a mini by you know so you get back on friday and most likely. They'll have monday tuesday saturday sunday and monday off. Which would be a nice respite for team. You know early on in the season and that's why ban if they lose this game ooh baby. I can't even imagine what it's going to be like around here because it looked you underdogs. So i know you and i have. You know had expectations for them. I think a lot of their fans had a lot of expectations for them and what they saw as a lot of what they saw last year and the year before that and the year before that the year before that and that is what is starting to bubble now towards the top. And that's why this game is so supremely important washington football team minus three. The over under is forty and a four. It's three on sports on fendell sportsbook. Yeah i'm looking at right now. So they might open at four and gone down to three but right now as we speak on. Sportsbook is washington football team minus three are. What's the prop that for. Daniel jones passing. Roy may not be out yet. Okay it is not. i do not have player. Props yet player. Props tend to come out like right before the game or like the day before. The game rather So i don't. I don't have it yet. I've got a bunch of other stuff but i do. I do not have the player props yet anything interesting. What's your definition of interest. What about the the running. The running. Total for the giants. What do you mean the team. Total the yards total. Do you have that. I don't have that yet. i just got know. First quarter first-half lines right now. As far as alternate spread. I drive result team. Total points away team total points. Giants total points is over under nineteen. I'm taking over on that really. I think the. I think the game is going to be an under. The game is probably what forty three and a half or something. It's forty and forty and a half. I'll take the over on the game. And i would take the over on the giants scoring okay real because i think the giant. I think this game like somebody's gonna win this game. Like twenty three to twenty twenty four to twenty one something like that. That's the way i feel like this game is going to be played. Okay and that would that would go over for sure. so yeah. there's no No player props yet at least at faneuil sportsbook right now. But they'll be there soon enough. Yeah i mean we're already here that's going to be. I can't like. I don't wanna do that show. I don't wanna do that. Friday show of the giants lose it. It's gonna be a yoga friday. That's going to be horrible. And al's warm-up show is just going to be hin taken a blow torch to everything giants are you so you are rooting for them to lose even know. Football will be dead here if they lose that game. In my opinion football dead for the rest of the year in new york. You're still rooting for them. To lose because of your disdain for the organization. I i will not root against the giants but sort of like a win win if the giants win. That's great if they lose then you're right then i'm right. Yeah i just don't want football to be dead around your soon again. And if they end up the best they could do if they lose this game than the best they could do in that three game stretch. Obviously one and two they beat the atlanta falcons and think about that. Imagine if the already party comes in here metlife stadium. It's the eli manning. Jersey retirement day. And the atlanta falcons come in and beat the giants in there off to an owing three start. We can't have that. We can't have that with both the mets and the yankees potentially out of the playoffs. The hell we gonna do nothing around here. I thought things are starting to turn around god. Damn it with no. it's not. It's getting worse nick basketball. Yeah right oh yeah well. At least we have the nets right. Buber will have the nets to pay attention. Millions of americans are using good rx to save on their prescriptions. Here's diane story.

How the Chiefs and 49ers built their teams

"And now move the sticks with Daniel Jeremiah and bookie brooks they action-packed left side touchstone TAP A hand off to most of the pack around ten thousand I homes moving to his left latterly chased holding it and gets out of bounds up the sideline. He's dead out of bounds yet. He's the ten inside the curls. Here's Rob GonNa fake and boatlift. He has richey James Junior. They're the throw a pitcher scandal. Twenty ten he is back they go. What's up everybody? Welcome to move the sticks presented by Digiorno Stock Doc on Digiorno Pizza for the big game. Luck how're you doing. Ma'am Man I'm gray. Dj Like I. I think this is a great opportunity to kind of pause. Right before the Super Bowl to do what we would do if we working for team. And that is just kinda examined. The two teams that are playing in the Super Bowl and to talk about how they were constructed breakdown. Their Franchise quarterback Patrick Mahomes Jimmy. Garoppolo see how they build them whether it's through the draft free agency or through trades. Look at GM's their pass to their jobs. And then look at their coaches and the style of play that these teams employ As a fascinating discussion that we are about to have just on look the housing wise of why the San Francisco forty nine in Kansas City chiefs are playing super bowl fifty four no doubt and I say we just jump in right now and again. This is something bucky mentioned every team in the league it does this Studying the teams that get that final four in that final two and trying to find out the secret sauce so to speak. So that's what we're going to do on today's episode I figure we could start off. You're talking about the two quarterbacks for these teams and and how they were acquired and what took place in the thought process to bring them to their team. So let's start off here the first one here with Patrick Mahomes and the chiefs and that started with a big draft day trade in twenty seventeen the Kansas City chiefs no longer have a first round pick while they just traded it along with the ninety first overall. Pick to move up seventeen months with the tenth pick in the two thousand seventeen. NFL draft the Kansas City chiefs. Select Patrick Mahomes to second quarterback Texas Tech so there you go buck the the Kansas City chiefs Saul what they liked him. Patrick Mahomes they made the move all the way up to the tenth overall pick to select elect Patrick Mahomes in. We've talked about this before but your background having been around coach read. I've been around coach with the Philadelphia. Eagles this has to be that they saw the next Brett farve and that's why they went up and got him. It was all about the Brett. Farve comparison in similarities in like if anybody he has a chance to see some of the stories that are floating out there On the Internet about Brett v-chip how he basically applauded In followed Padma homes and we missing videos and audit other stuff. There's a fascination in that building about Padma homes and you could tell the fascination was real based on what they gave up In trade into get the tenth Shantha overall pick. They traded away their own. First Round pick twenty seventh overall a third round pick and then another first round. Pick the following year to get their franchise quarterback the back and you have to say two years in and it looks really good that has worked out the first year he sat out the second year he gets. MVP to third year there in the Super Bowl so how can do you not like that. Their trade I think the big thing is not just a player acquisition to player development. The fact that they had Alex Smith and that year When you taught the people in the building Andy Reid just let Patrick Mahomes all scout team man throw it all over the yard and then when they came back that following off season in ot as in minicamps or whatever he continued to allow him to throw it all over the yard and try to figure out what he does well and what it needs some work on in the end as they began to whittle as game aimed down they begin to kind of hone it in and work on the decision making they were able to really get the best of both worlds a gunslinger with unique talents and playmaking ability? Who is also become a very solid decision maker so he not only can make you right as a play? Call it when you call the bad play because his talent is immense and he can just make things happen kind of magician that can pour rabbits out of the hat. He is also managing the game at a high level. That is why the last two years we've seen against any Richie's advanced a championship game losing overtime. And then make it to the Super Bowl behind a quarterback that we're talking about being maybe one of the best we've ever seen at the position Shen and you talk about the value of the quarterback position overall. Think about this when I went back and and bill and borrow did a good job of looking up for us here The trade the bills made right so they end up getting the They drop back to the twenty seven th pick in that year they get a third round pick that year and they get the chiefs first round. Pick in the two thousand eighteen drafts so this is what they ended up with. They ended up with Troy Davis White right all pro corner who has been phenomenal for them. that's who they got with the twenty seven th pick. They end up moving. These picks around a little bit here. But this is basically the whole they ended up with according to Some of the trades they made with those picks Zeh Jones receiver did not work cal. Cal Cross him off the list. They Dion Dawkins Dion Dawkins you know some of that capital us to to move up and acquired Deok in the draft. Who is one of the better young left tackles in the NFL? So you've got all pro corner one of the better young left tackles in the NFL. And then the first round in two thousand eighteen they used that pick and traded up and got tremaine Edmonds. Who you can make a case is the most exciting young inside linebacker in the national football league with rare-sized length explosiveness so all pro corner Stud young left tackle in a potentially all pro middle linebacker and and then they up getting Josh Allen Their quarterback who's who's taken them to the postseasons a very good player if you took all that into account the buck and I gave you the option all those great players or you could have Patrick Mahomes? What would you do sticking with Patrick mahomes because I gotta get it as regards as assume that you can't overpay? You can't overpay for quarterback if you pick the right quarterback in I mean look we're we're talking about the Buffalo. The bills got some franchise players for them. They got their quarterback Josh Allen to use some of the remnants to get that they then have today. Why are you talking about Oprah corner a young dynamic offensive offensive tackle and then a playmaker Defense Tremaine Edmonds? You can't fault them for making their trade they have found out. I mean they discovered a way to really build up their team however over on the other side. Kansas City defied the quarterback that they believe would be there. QB One for the next decade and you can knock them for having an MVP candidate and transcendent transcendent player at the position. This is a win win for both teams. I'm just saying the chiefs are just winning a little bit more based on how Mahomes has turned out. No yeah no doubt When we flip this over to the forty niners We've talked about Garoppolo in in the trade that they made their a little bit of a gamble right because it was limited Limited limited opportunity to see what he could do there with the New England patriots. But I think they've found somebody that played a very clean efficient brand of football and they knew what he could do what he couldn't do even more importantly buck and crafted the team around him accordingly. Yes I think that has been really really big and so much of what we've talked about in the the gas of late life for years we've talked about this fit in scheme. How does the player a prospect that you get? How does he fit into your scheme? And how do you tailor your scheme to elevate Betas talents. Well the San Francisco Forty niners Guy Jimmy Garoppolo on a nice deal from the New England patriots. They put them immediately onto the field after some injuries. Kind of prompted them to do so he he immediately rattles off a series of wins. That give you confidence to next season. They come back continue to be offense. They continue to do with cal. Shanahan has always done outside zone own outside zone play action it complements. Jimmy Garoppolo is terrific in this city that system and I think when we go all the way back in the first name is has on Jimmy Garoppolo at the east shrank game when he was coming out all came out quickly did a good job get it to the playmakers counted out. Didn't know how good he was gonna be got an opportunity to the senior bowl. Stand up this kind of makes his way to the second round with the New England Patriots and then when you got a chance to see him in the preseason for the Patriots triest. It's kind of like the same deal I count. He's kind of like a John Stockton to me in terms of a point guard on the basketball floor just as a really good job of just getting the ball to the playmakers doesn't necessarily mess around but also has enough athleticism to do some of the new school. RPO stuff and run around stuff that you want to see. What your quarterbacks rex? So it's a nice fit forty four dollars and I know they've been gains where he has had a lot of pass attempts because the run game has been so dominant. But we've seen in stretches he can play at a high level. I'm not ready to proclaim him a tier. One quarterback like our proclaim Pat Mahomes but into forty nine or system. He definitely plays like a tier one quarterback based on how they do everything around him. I want to roll this sound bite here in just a second because this is a this. This is a moment for this forty niners team. We're talking about team building. And this moment. Benefited the offense. And the defendant. I believe is a key reason why they're in the super rable. It's because of what happened right here. It is in fact a torn. ACL knee the knee injury. He sustained while cutting instead of going out of bounds. It was something that will rob them of the balance of two thousand eighteen season so book that is Jimmy Garoppolo tearing his ACL enough. Think about this we we just talked about Patrick Mahomes and having having a year to sit in learn behind and Alex Smith this injury provided Jimmy Garoppolo even though disappointment in Mr Majority of that season but allowed him to sit and learn this Shanahan system without having to be out there on the field but to really really get comfortable with it and really become a master Mr of it and then when he was reinserted into lineup when he was healthy I think that benefited him in in the long run. The other thing it did obviously without Jimmy Garoppolo they lost a ton of games ended up putting them up there in position to get somebody like Nick Bosa who had a major major impact on the defensive side of the ball so we we've talked about this before. Is it better for these young quarterbacks. We're back to player. Sit even though. He was a little bit older young veteran. I would say I do think that time off getting a chance to sit and watch and learn. Benefited Jimmy Garoppolo in this a system. It absolutely benefited him. I think it benefited him. Not only like CNN. Tom Run the system and kind of learning those things. But also hearing the messages from Bill. The check Every day and then coming back and then coming over to the forty niners learning Kyle Shanahan system. So would Jimmy Garoppolo. GATT was an opportunity to really do what we all want. All young quarterbacks do too slowly assimilate into the starting position to slowly understand how to play the game. How to understand the the system that you're being asked to play in how to understand the defense is and how they attack so when you do get your opportunity to play you can count a play an attack moat and I think what we've we've seen from Jimmy Garoppolo? He's been able to do that now. I can give CAL Shanahan a ton of credit for the calls that he makes how you designs office and how he creates these shots. What's within a game but Jimmy Garoppolo has cashed in on those opportunities and we've seen in two minutes situations where the coach is really kind of put to the side and the player player has to make the place? We've seen Jimmy Garoppolo win in those situations. So if you're a San Francisco Forty niners fan. If you're an official you feel good about who you have in place as your franchise quarterback no doubt And when we look at these two rosters these fifty three men rosters how they were made up. You look at the draft. The forty niners twenty-one players players from the draft chiefs seventeen of those players from the draft Free Agency twenty-seven for the niners twenty six for the chiefs so very similar there. This is the big difference. Forty the niners. We've talked about the trade for Garappolo but five players acquired via trade or waivers the chiefs ten so the chiefs have been very active in the trade market Trying to go out find existing veteran players that fit them and bring them in. And it's worked out quite well. I'm going to get to one of those traits in just a second but a player that they drafted Who We talk about this team track team? The reason for that more than any other is because they have the fastest player in the NFL and that is the Cheetah and Tyreek Hill went back and found found this little nugget. This is This is our buddy their line talking about him after he was selected in the fifth round of the two thousand sixteen draft. This guy has blazing speed. is they blazing like. Oh we're talking. He's he's he's GonNa be. He's a world-class twenty. Two hundred meter guy got who has speed all day we heard Lance talking about right there. Buck I mean. Look at if not for the off the field stuff tyree kills a second round pick At worst you know everybody knew about his special ability. His special talent The chiefs chief took a little bit of a chance there and and you have to you have to admit man. What the The risks that they took from a football standpoint is definitely paid off. Yeah definitely has paid off and I in the all the stuff that was in his background it it did make you kind of proceed with caution when taking the player They roll the dice in is really come a big for them. I think the bigger thing is like once we you put to this out. I think it was a bit of a gamble even with him being a wide receiver. Because when you look at Terri towery keeled is really built. Like a running back When he first got his opportunity to make plays plays obviously he was a pro bowl player as a returner when he finally got a chance to come to a San move up to a prominent wide receiver row? He wasn't necessarily a terrific route runner but what he had. It was outstanding speed and explosiveness early in his career. I believe Andy. Reid used him like he used to use the Sean Jackson in Philadelphia Vertical Plays as let them touch reverses. Let him get it on the move any ran away from the defense. I think to everyone's surprise he's developed and become a more complete receiver achiever in terms of running routes making plays catching the ball in traffic. And doing those things and as we talk about this Kansas City chiefs team becoming more of a track team on the perimeter. I just believe Tyreek Hill is in perfect position to do what he does. I can't guarantee that he would be the same kind of impactful player for other teams. He's just believe is a unique situation where you have a masterful play. Call a plate in Andy Reid a generational talent at quarterback. I mean even though we saw to every he'll make plays as with Alex Smith and then a supporting cast around Req- and Travis Kelsey and Sammy Watkins and some of the other players may call harmon and some the other day get onto the field. Where if you don't double team him and he gets one on one opportunities he absolutely can kill you as a big time? Playmaker maker is just a very very unique situation. Maybe the perfect storm in our stadium. We've talked about you. Know Kinda flossy would have if we got back into this thing. And I've I've Long said that I I am a member of the offensive line club. Meaning I think every draft one of your first three picks should be an offensive lineman. You do that. Every single year. Wanted pick in the first round. If you've got a couple of third round picks maybe four thick you need to have at least one. Top three round offensive lineman added to your group every single a year to make sure you always have a fresh supply there because depth is going to be an issue and it's hard to be a bad team with a good offensive line. It's hard to be a good team with a bad offensive line so I believe in investing in that one thing I would add with the way the game is played right now book. I don't care what it is could be your seventh round pick but you. I would say we're going to add one dynamic explosive low sieve offensive player in every single draft. Meaning you know we get a route runner up your route runner here there but at some point in time one of our picks is going to be an explosive playmaker that that could be running back tight end receiver whatever but we are going to add that explosive element and when you look at the chiefs and what they've done they've been able to do that. You you see Michael Hartmann from this last draft. Obviously we've talked about tyreek Hill Talking about free agency going out with Sammy. Watkins like they have continued every year to infuse more speed. More athleticism into this offense. They absolutely have speed we now. I like your idea. Dj in terms of adding like building up the fortress of front of quarterback but then adding a weapon each year Having sat with Ron Ron Woolfe and having watched it as a player and talk to them later as a scout and obviously everyone that I work for early in my career descended from that Ron. We'll tree you just can't have enough explosive. The players and what you're trying to do is like yes. You're building a team. While also assembling premier talent and Ron woolfe would tell you that he learned from Al Davis having played in Oakland For Mr Davis it was all about speed and explosiveness and creating big plays. Where when you have a big play offense an offense that can score from anywhere anywhere on the field? It changes. How defenses have to defend your quarterback your team your office of unit? I just believe if you have enough of those guys that you can throw. They're good things are gonNA happen on. Offense no doubt we talked about the trades. Ten trades that the chiefs have made. Maybe none bigger than this one right here. We're talking about player traits the acquisition of Frank Clark. They got rid of D. Ford and then traded for Frank. Clark you say well. What's going on there dee the Ford in their minds? More of a situational pass rusher Frank Clark. More of a complete player that can give you stuff down in and down out. That's why the chiefs make this move bringing flank Frank Clark and try and get the contract dry book. That was a move they really kind of swapped out. It's ironic they're gonNA. CD Ford in the Super Bowl playing for the forty niners but they really swapped out D Ford his money. What they had to pay him and ended up using that to To get Frank Clark there from the Seattle seahawks out goes D Ford in goes Frank Clark. I think thank you could say it's worked out well for both these teams. It has worked out. Well we'll start with Frank Clark Angle. I am Frank Clark Where the Kansas City chiefs gut and my estimation they probably got a more complete player? You're a guy who high energy guy a guy that is very very disruptive obviously as a pass rusher but I think he gives you a little more on the run game and you hear about it. I believe the defense kind of carry. Some of the Swaggie he infuses and also some of the Energy and swagger that Taryn Matthew to honey badge infuses in this unit this is a different unit and even though they've had their struggles early near they play better down the stretch. This is a unit that believes that they can get the selective stops. We don't expect the Kansas City chiefs to be a team that can necessarily shut you out. They just need to get two or three stops a game because their office is really an arena bowl office. So they're gonNA score thirty five to forty forty points they just need to get the ball back to homes a couple of times to really allow them to create that separation. I think for the forty niners. What the trade with the Fort did? It allowed them to continue to stockpile first round talent on their defensive front You think about Bosa and Eric Armstead and deforest Buckner CNOR and Solomon Thomas Afford Kinda gave them a pure pass rusher off the edge to go with Nick Bosa and I say this I know Dick Bozell was drafted. Hi but I'm a raise my hand and say that still has some concerns about how good he would be at. The next level is surpassed all expectations. Because he's been terrific but pairing him with the D. Ford who also kind of that that speed pass rusher that we like to have at least one or guys that can do that. I mean it's kind of like a a terrific defense of frontline for the forty niners and they have kind of all of the pieces that you would want to assemble on an ideal defensive front no doubt and one of the thing on the on the chiefs going back to them talking about those trades buck the secondary when you go get a kindle fuller and Chavez Ward Two very good trades for them to players there in back in again to me. I think the common theme here when we look at how these teams were built is that they understand what works for them. What plays for them what they want and they're able to craft that team around around that we talk about the track team we talk about the back end for the chiefs getting guys with tremendous ball skills? Because you're going to be playing with the lead because of that offense get guys football tyronn Matthew few obviously comes into the mix there and as Is really become the leader of that football team on the back in a brilliant brilliant fit there we go to the The forty niners. We we talk about that defensive front. That's where the the this team is really built around two things I would say cow Shanahan's scheme offensively and the personnel. They have on the defensive line and the biggest piece of that defensive line was their new addition. This last year in Nick Bosa greedy in the two thousand nineteen in in the San Francisco. Forty niners selected nick. So Buck we've already touched on on it but that was A little bit of luck involved there right you know. Unfortunately your quarterback gets hurt but then it puts you in a position to get somebody in a Bosa and you also have to think about the fact that it. It was the right move in hindsight but surprised us when when we learned that the Arizona cardinals were going to go back to back quarterbacks taking Kyle Marie after having already taking Josh Rosen. If they stick with Josh Rosen then they take Nick Bosa In the forty niners really would've lost out so it didn't it benefited them Team insider division with quarterback back to back years. Yes yeah surprising pig By the time they adjust expended a top. Pick on Josh Rosen. We thought Josh Rosen was going to be the quarterback of the future for their coaching. Change Cliff Kingsbury color. Murray just work. That allowed them to get maybe the best player in the draft at the number two overall pick and it kind of changed. What their defensive? The Front look like and you talked about this team being built on cal. Shanahan's run game and that's scheme and a dominant defense. Would one thing that we know over the history of the League. Those two things tippy put your position to get close to get into the Super Bowl and so dominant run game Disruptive Defense if you sprinkle in a quarterback back in there like they have in Jimmy Garoppolo that is a recipe to get into the final four and more times than not. If you get enough cuts at at at the plate you eventually. He not went out they have certainly knocked it out of the park with their combination with the run game. Defense and quarterbacking Jimmy Garoppolo all right. Let's get to these These general managers here Brett. Vh For the for the Kansas City chiefs some of that I worked with their with the With the Philadelphia Eagles bread is a great guy. High High Energy Very very passionate about what he does somebody that it started out. Kind of as coach reads kind of coaching intern. Really was just kinda there for him. Anything that coach Reid needed that was Brett. He took care care of him. And I think that relationship between the two big and I also think just having been around coach this entire time during his career. He knows exactly what they're looking for in their scheme. What plays for them? What personality traits they like You know coach Reid. I've told this story before. You always say every player that you draft or sign does one or two things wchs they bring energy to your building or they suck energy from your ruling and they've done a good job. You look guys like the honey. Badger look at Pat Mahomes at his energy that he brings even bringing over Shady McCoy to get him back plugged in again even though he's not what he was. They've got a lot of guys with a lot of energy and a lot of spark Kelsey his personality. Think about how much energy he brings So they know what they're looking for and I think Brett vh in this role helping Andy Reid through this process. I think that relationships very important. Yeah I think it is very important I think is great And we're seeing a shift in the way that teams are building their front offices And it's always cyclical it used to be The general manager getting place and then you hired of the coach and they were kind of getting lockstep. We're seeing more teams now. Have the coach then finds the personnel man. They did desire so they can come to work together. I think that the beauty of what the Kansas City chiefs have done with Brett. Vh and Andy. Reid is because of each served as maybe the assistant assistant to Andy Reid. He really knows what he wants. They are Kinda in unison and in lock step in terms of players style of play what what fit. What works what Kinda guys would be ideal chiefs and I think we have seen them kind of do it now? I will give John Dorsey typically because he did a lot. That's Kinda like the foundation stuff for Andy Reid in this team. Bro Visas taken it to another level and is really the benefit of guys. Being Abraham the have the steady dialogue guys having the kind of trust and commitment and the accountability to go back and forth Is it's been a perfect marriage for the Kansas City chiefs and bread red visa done a great job of quickly common climbing up the tree. But really given Andy Reid exactly what he wants to kind of build a team that he he envisions a playing dominate in the AFC. NO DOUBT I. I think it's a very good relationship there. And we flip over to John Lynch and the forty niners one rule. A couple bites here because One is an example of John Lynch and his intelligence as a player The second one is going to go onto his taking over as the new general manager of the forty niners. So let's roll those clips. Don't let her pull you with this pump. We get to Orlando what's threatened. I down ten from the forty five and pump. Fake look to his right though it intersecting Dexter Jackson next. That's our goal right before the snap at slugger go right coming at you from the NFL network. Newsroom with breaking news former safety and Stanford Alum John Lynch has been named as the new general manager of the San Francisco. Forty niners and with that being said said. Let's now turn our attention to wrap. She rappaport now. Ian Word on the street is that his deal of the six year variety. What more can you tell us about this? Yeah the forty niners headed it to second interviews this week. General Manager Candidates Terry Donahue of the hours Carlson George pain from the Minnesota Vikings but there was always a third candidate a mystery candidate the date who would only agree to take part in the interview process if his name remained completely secret and we now know that candidate was John Lynch the former former Bronco's grade and of course the analysts who has spent a lot of time over the last week trying to get out of his Fox field several complications that out of nowhere John John Lynch named forty nine or general manager. So Buck you can tell from that first bite. They're just his awareness knowing exactly what was coming in that super bowl telling Dexter Extra Jackson to watch out for the pump. Fake which led to an interception there for Jackson Sometimes there's players. It just seemed like a natural progression. You know with just their intelligence and the way they play on on the field not to mention having been a part of great teams and knowing what great defenses specifically look like I think John Lynch was a great fit here absolutely really. Great fit. Didn't really know ozzy he's coming from the TV booth to jumping into the front office so there was a huge learning curve. But here's what I will say about. John Lee John Lynch and and what I really like about what he did with the front office in the front office he went and got a lot of experience he got guys who had done the job guys who had done it. Martin may who comes over and it helps out Adam Peters coming over from Denver when I look at their pro department now they have ran carphone They have some other experienced guys county. Doing very critical jobs ops in the scouting department and Lynch has done is. He's been able to be very very Self critical and understand his own strengths and weaknesses. He's kind of a in lockstep with Kyle. Shanahan Ozzie Cowles. Shanahan kind of says the vision for how he wants to team to operate but then John Lynch can kind of talk about like what players smell like what they feel like what it should be like based on his experience as a player and being around great organizations I would be buccaneers then with the Denver Broncos. I just believe all of it coming together has really helped the San Francisco Forty niners bill. This team and a team that looks like is built for for the long haul and the ownership group deserves a lot of credit for one making themselves be patient with this six year deals for Shanahan Shanahan and Lynch. They weren't able to pull the plug on the experiment early. They had to sit and wait for to grow and because they were forced to sit and wait John Cale Shanahan had had the luxury of really being able to build this team in the image that they saw would be Best suited for long-term dominant. Winning it's all worked out but I give John Lynch a ton of credit you for being able to carry some of the experiences from the field and to the front office and have success two things you said there that to me are interesting talking about the patients getting guys that are on the same page and then having patients giving them those six year deals to let this plan unfold and I also think you mentioned buck talking about Martin may whose presence there there. Adam Peters ran car thon. It's more of that baseball. Approach in other words John Lynch's humble enough to know what he doesn't know or still has to learn and grow in a new role for him having not been in personnel so to have a team of guys that can help you collectively make good decisions. John Lynch then being able to take all that information and Work with Kyle Shanahan to come up with the best decision I think is the way to go. I think you can look at Bill Belichick and that is the one one example one shining example of you could say okay. Okay that is a one man band and he can do the whole thing. That is very rare and unusual to me. I've been an advocate of this baseball approach. Where you have a five six men leadership team put all your strengths together? Cover up your week your weaknesses Collectively and make the right decision. I think that's the best way moving forward. I think that's where football's ball's a little bit behind in my opinion. Yeah I think it'd be interested in. We'll talk about this in future podcasts. About the kind of the baseball influence on West beginning to happen in front offices is but yeah I do believe it is a collective a group of Big thinkers that are able to Kinda sit and talk and hash out different. The idea based on the experiences someone ultimately has to have the gavel into make the decision but as you and I know. Dj when you sit in these rooms and if the I at the top has enough courage and confidence to allow others to speak it allows you to Can have some interesting discussions. That may let you think about Out Situations and scenarios in a different In a different light. I think what John Lynch has assembled in San Francisco allows you to make really good decisions because he is Kinda the pushed and prodded with a bunch of different decision makers who are also will regard it in their own areas of expertise are. Let's get to these coaches here because it's definitely Contrast contrast there in age and experience but both outstanding offensive minded coach is Andy Reid when he was hired by the Kansas City chiefs was a big coup. He could have. I've had any job. He wanted that off season. The chiefs ended up getting him. And here's CO owner. Clark Hunt discussing why. He hired Andy Reid. Well when we went into the search search process we were looking for somebody who had been a proven leader. Somebody who had been part of a successful program Somebody with integrity who would hold their players accountable and really andy fits all those qualities and so many more. He's really the right person. And when he and. I sat down last Wednesday far interview with it was pretty clear early on that. There was a great chemistry and that it was going to be a good fit between the two of us. That was Really kind of just a stroke of luck there for the chiefs so that they add Andy Reid available and they decided just to pounce on it right away I wanNA say. The chargers might have had an opening that year as well It was several openings where it looked like Andy. Reid it would be the You know it'd be the number one candidate. After all the success he had in Philadelphia a mutual parting of ways. There in Philly philly needed a fresh voice and you needed a new start and man it. It worked out tremendously well for the chiefs. It worked out very very well and my relationship with Andy. Reid goes all the way back to my playing days with the Green Bay packers in the mid nineties. Andy Reid was initially the tight end. Coach for me. I was playing defense at the time. Andy Reid was responsible for running the scout team. Defense so he would put the cards up. He was very very meticulous in details and demanding in terms of what he wanted to present to the first team. Offense was a little surprising win win when he went to Philadelphia because he was hired as a head coach before he ever called place with the Green Bay packers he said at the knee of Michael Brune. He ran the quarterback room with Brett farve and others but his ability elite learn and do those things Philadelphia really has made him one of the top coaches not only in the league now but he will be celebrated as one of the best coaches that we've seen. NFL history sorry based on his accomplishments in Kansas City he was able to take a very very successful blueprint in Philadelphia replicated in Kansas City. While I bringing over Alex Smith really changed the way we proceed. Alex Smith to be answers how he played elevated him. Then he gets the transcendent talent and Padma home and away. They go but as a play call. He's terrific An innovator despite being older as oh that's why I think when we began to look at head coaches a head. Coaching coaching candidates. Throw out. I think you gotta dig deeper and see how imagine as they are. Are they lifelong learners. And are they willing to be a little different different when it comes to looking at different ways to really get their team up and going. Yeah I heard this little video actually Re tweeted at the other day John Maxwell. WHO's as good as it gets in the leadership space? He's had had used this line. It was fantastic. It's like the either grow through life or or you go through life we all go through life. Not everybody grows through life life and I think that's a compliment. I love to pay coach. Reid is because he somebody that never thinks he has it all figured out. He's constantly looking for what's next. What's new talking to college? Coaches bringing running in different guys looking at different schemes whereas the game of football headed and being ahead of the curve and that is something that's unusual for somebody with as much success as he's had to have the humidity to say okay. I need to learn more. I need to know what's next and I ended up constantly. Keep growing. And that's what he's done throughout his career absolutely Growth Mindset continued to take it to the next level Looking for different ways to push the envelope when it comes to run his office and his team and and so I I I give credit because having sat there and watched I knew how rigid coach homeroom was when it came to running offense. Andy Reid has some of those core beliefs but he's also kind of open it up and when we see the way that it can't say cheese he's play is a mix of that old school west coast offense with a lot of new ideas that are really present in the lower levels. Give any read a lot of credit for being able to open his mind and continue to expand expand his playbook when there's so many different things that are going on that are really trendy. NFL football no doubt. And we go to from Andy Reid who android at sixty one years old. The Cow Shanahan at forty years. Old Cow Shanahan. Let's go back to the day February. Six two thousand seventeen one day after the super bowl. This was the day the San Francisco. Forty the niners announced Shanahan as their coach Here's a little nuggets. Hear some little little little inside. Look here at CAL. Shanahan guys like Harris Barton. Tom Rathman Steve Young Jerry Rice just all these guys have really been a big part of my life. Who knows only with those guys for three years? There's just was. The guy looked up to guys. I wanted to be Tom had a hard time being them as a player he tried my hardest As much easier coach to be involved with this stuff and to be back to this what. I've always known the NINERS TO BE I. I can't wait to have the opportunity and we always to the fans and everyone out here the together. We've bring it back to what it was and I'm very confident. We're GONNA don't do that book I I I would say. The word genius is is overused in sports. But when you ask anybody that's played for Kyle Shanahan Their thoughts on him. That the word that comes up more than any other I mean is really fascinating to me to see how he's evolved as a play caller DC. I don't know if you had a chance to go through the Super Bowl research package yet but I I saw something that stood out to me over the last one Over the last four years he has taken his game up notch in terms of pre. Snap shifting and motioning they up about five percent each year in the last two years The San Francisco for Cisco Forty niners. They motion shift prior to an office. A play off seventy percent of their plays a season ago and seventy not presented. Senator plays this year so before every play. There's some kind of shift motion that diverse the eyes of the defense. And then when you think about how simple simple. They're run game really is talking about outside zone a couple of gaps games. He Mascot beautifully with all of the motion and so we talk about the genius Of Simplicity is something that people used to talk about. Steve Jobs and apple he is really an office of Genius Beverly Taken sump something that looks very very very complex. But it's really very simple. He's in a really great job with this office of game. I think about him. I think about Christmas book and I think about. He's giving you the same present. But it's just different wrapping paper sums in a bag as some of. It's unbelievable a little box. It's the same thing right. It's at the end of the day. The president is the same thing it's all. It's all the wrapping paper in the bags and the tissue. He makes all that stuff kind of take all your attention. The fact it's just the same plays. His Dad had been running for thirty thirty years. Man It's the same tried and true formula that works. This is own scheme at. They're so good at now you mix it in some of the traps and power scheme that they do in the run game but it's all dressed dressed up and gussied up by By a bunch of motion. It's all wrapping paper. I mean is unbelievable to see. I mean it's it's unbelievable. What what they're able to do and I think it's funny With his dad scheme having played against it I mean it was is generic. You knew what was coming you just can stop. TD coming downhill and splits on an outside zone in the six core place that they use but imagine you being cow Shanahan and your dad is highly regarded coach. But being able to take what your dad built as a foundation and even add add more to it. This is unbelievable. It's unbelievable that he has been able to take his dad's initials game go to Gary Kubiak and then add his own pieces to it. He deserves a lot of credit. Because because when I look at the San Francisco Forty niners. I've never been more excited by watching a team. Run it on almost every down what they did in the championship game against the Green Bay packers because to me was beautiful football and involved were eight passes. I just don't know if I ever could think of beautiful football not involving the passing passing as being feature prominently. What I'm hoping is that more owners? Were looking oh man there creative ways to run the football and give more attention to guys that are in charge of run game stuff it Kinda see beauty did exist Within really creative very very dynamic running game yeah it's GonNa be fun to watch the Super Bowl man. It's it's a fantastic fantastic matchup from organizations that have been built the right way. Great Coaching Staff Star players. All over the place. It should be fantastic game and we'll be right here. I'm to give you the the feedback in our reaction to what we see next week on the podcast as well.

Thank you for tuning into the gs mc football podcast brought to you by the jeers mc podcast network. I'm your host your guy. Dj young's back again phone episode man and this was a tough one. Decide what to talk about. 'cause ally has happened is such a short amount of time in the football world. Man is. There's been a lot going on as you already know college. Football's back They're running things. Man lhasa decide to update you on some Some of the teams the ranking stuff. Like that on top of that man since football is about to start next week. of cuts had to happen. This we talk about cuts specifically who got cut. What does that mean for some of these teams right and then on top of that. Some people are here tricking. Espn and you know. People that are serious corporations in order to get themselves on television playing ball in ain't got no business owners. Green man ain't got no business playing ball so what i'll do is man if you don't already know about that situation. That story with team sneaking onto espn for games and playing img which is a big name a school. Then i might just say that one for a little story time we'll do a little Segment it i guess. That's something you're interested in. Definitely go ahead and leaves god. I'll i'll try to wait until Right before the documentary comes out. Because i'm sure there's gonna be some information come out in a late show up on all the information out there because people are actually still pulling a fax to get because it was that much of confusion obviously all right but i do want to keep you guys informed. Man i wanna have. Some fun is episode as well as you know. Keep you informed. So what i decided to do with this one here is. We're gonna talk about these cuts. We're going to talk about the waivers and cuts For teams. I know injuries. So what these teams really going to look like starting off in the nfl They inefficient actually just wrapped up their top. One hundred players voted on by other players. And i believe exists and coaches got to chime in but mainly use focuses on the players. If you don't watch it or check it out it's you know has players commentary in a you know talking about you. Know who they believe are best at each position specifically Reflect on specific games that they played against the more things that they washed them do So i'm gonna dive into that a little bit do of course i'm not going to do all hundred but maybe i'll try to speed through the top fifty if we at time and then but i also wanna talk about the top twenty five kinda ranked players in college football as well because i know account talked about the teams A little bit. But you know if you don't have any ties to it if you didn't go to college if you earn you know to you know college like that or don't know who is who root for then of course talk about some of the players. May maybe you know if you're somebody like me a lot of times. You're watching certain players. See what they see how they perform. So we'll talk about twenty five top players and then that's pretty much going to be so it's gonna be a lot of names at you. You might want to get your pencil and paper just so that you can keep everything organized and figuring out Later on when it's time to watch because you're not going to remember everything about to all right so when you turn on. The tv washed the game this week. Next week So forth on all right so let's get into it man the biggest news of the week. I definitely don't think anything is going to tap this. But the mac jones era begins in a begins in a big way. Not only did the new england. Patriots decided to start mack. Brown weak one. They also cut cam newton. Yup yup it might have happened a little sooner than most of us in. Maybe even bill belichick expected but the number fifteen overall pick in the draft. This year is starting week. One for the big name pressure. New england patriots With jones's rise to the top spot. It lied to you. Know to the team. Releasing cam newton. That's what he led to It's it's a clear path for jones to grow into the role without cam looking over his shoulder. So that's typically why the most people believe a truly happened. Because i mean you can't say you don't want cam newton on your team is just that. I'm pretty sure mack. Jones one impressed them extremely. If you don't know mac jones He led eight drives eight one two five seven eight eight drives during his preseason. All right that's how many that they put out there and let them do beginning in all right. All eight ended. In a score a touchdown or field goal can't be mad about that can't argue about that. He may hold ballo too long and things of that nature but the end of the day. They think they found their future. So with that. I mean for one Two i did one They felt like one. They don't need to have cam newton. you know. Make scaring mac off because they already have a backup quarterback there but Cam newton also is a qb one saw. I'm pretty sure it was a mutual decision As you if you haven't heard already know cam. Newton was even on a podcast and stuff like that. And he said there aren't three two guys better than him so guys better him than clearly. He believes he's a key one. He's not going to be back. Matter of fact. I probably was conversations. They decided mac is gonna start and cameras like well. you buy. release me. 'cause he's team. Qb one the unfortunate part is there's literally probably only two maybe three max teams that are probably willing to really scrap wherever they're starting quarterback is right now for a cam newton. All right the rest of them. I feel like they're either trying to have somebody growth Broken to know fix it or they have some one of the great set a hall of famer already. I'm sure right. That's literally the three categories so not too many people in their bottom line. That are really gonna flip the table for care. What do i think well think cam. Newton need opportunity. But i don't think is gonna be immediate. I don't think he's going to be able to go to team. And start like three teams that you know may consider it. I think they'll bring them on and possibly wait till they're starting quarterback messes up in the input game in there. Maybe just 'cause those stardom guys have already been there been at the camps pre much one. They're starting job. Versus all of the other backups. Or guys fighting for that position who knows but i don't wanna sit here in you know. Put it all on cam a performance you know. The patriots clearly brought him back for a reason Bill belichick is the benefits words. Or when he said that. Cam newton is going to be the starter. I'm pretty sure he meant that. They wanted mac to sit and learn but mac excelled so well. I guess they were like well. I guess you can learn on the field son. All right But other people on the new england patriots that were waved or release. Include to sean. Bauer the Outside linebacker defensive back miles. Brian's offensive tackle corey of cutting have Cornerback michael jackson wide receiver. Trey nixon cornerback the angelo raw wide receiver as as zuber defensive. Tackle martavis adams Defensive tackle akeem spence a quarterback deavere. So it's a host of other guys. People that are reserved or suspended quarterbacks defined gilmore. We'll be starting the season on the players. You know Who can't perform Do to fiscal reasons also injury or whatever it may be savant gilmore's on that list along wade joshua bledsoe The safety and To raise hall linebacker Few other guys with those main ones there. Jesus did them as well So he still on the roster but yeah that's what the new england patriots are dealing with in shoot. I guess this also with the league will be dealing with going into some other teams to talk about buffalo bills. We'll just keep it a conference Big move Not much surprise here for team that returns twenty one starters and a former starter twenty two twenty twenty opt out defensive tackles star. lou levy The decision to release quarterback jake from one year after drafting him in the fifth round stands out But it's likely the team tries to bring him back to its practice squad possibly a jacob hollister tied in in Read Ferguson will likely return as visted veterans They also traded d. defensive defensive in darrow johnson junior and for those that may not know too much of the background about how this whole cut cutting situation. Worldwide happens teams. Nfl requires a cut their rosters to fifty three players by four pm. On tuesday. september. I i mean August thirty first. Start but Cuts come earlier. This season as teams had three preseason games not four to accommodate the seventeen game regular season schedule Week after you know josh rosen. After josh rosen. Signed with the falcons. The quarterback ended up making the team's initial fifty three man roster so he got waived a claimed them picked him up and he actually made the roster so things like that can happen as will but of course the big names That could For sure cam. Newton and devante freeman running back for the saints. But we'll talk about that when we get down there But yes so. That's the case man. Just you know for budgeting purposes. I'm sure have that Keep that money But yeah so you know for the bills. The big ones are davis quarterback. Jake farm in davis webb running back antonio williams wide receiver. Stephen sam's Safety josh thomas Few by four linemen two linebackers So they they definitely cut it down by quite a bit there. miami dolphins. The dolphins cut benedict benedict mckinney That was kind of a surprise after trading for the former houston texan linebacker. This off season. The deal is officially awash for both sides as he's in texas former I mean as houston traded former dolphins defensive end shack lawson. The day before mckinney was cut off right so max scorers release could come as a surprise a few months ago but as initial sealed win miami traded for greg meant so that one was obvious. Other people released linebacker Josh harvey clements cornerback. Craven running back geared geared doke. Cornerback tino ellis linebackers. Sha quam griffin That's most of the main heap ball. Few other guys hope. Heart guys actually Reserve suspended Require a cornerback. Gentlemen ask you off. Tackle learn nail coleman and of course a wide receiver will fuller. Is he'll be Games are the new york jets. The jets dismantled their tied imposition trading former starter. Chris herdan Minnesota vikings and cut in ryan griffin daniel brown and can yoga. It leaves only two on the rush through tyler kroft and titan slash fullback trayvon wisc. Oh it feels speculation that a potential trae perhaps for the eagles zach ertz who general manager. Joe douglas knows from his days in philadelphia may happen. The jets did well to you know. Go in the fourth around her for henderson. Also asking a six rounder to minnesota. He teased with his potential after a promising rookie season. It's eighteen but never progressed. New york's coach coaching staff. Didn't see him as a fit for their tied in one position the biggest non move was the decision to not upgrade at qb to which is a risk. Obviously working with a. I guess a freshman a rookie. Everyone call him as a zach. Wilson you know so his backup is mike white who hasn't taken a snap in a regular season The jets are the first team in eight years to go into a season with a With no regular season experience at the position. So you know two guys that have not gotten snaps and games Other people waiting released from this team wide receiver. Dj montgomery quarterback. Josh johnson quarterback. James morgan Vincent smith Running back josh adams tight in mentioned the titans already But yeah so all these guys plus a host of others only personnel reserve Dwyane kyle phillips afc north. What's going on up there. Well just a little bit of this. A little bit of that baltimore ravens. The ravens could trace see mcsorley who trace mcsorley. I'm well this is what it means. It means that baltimore will go with two quarterbacks on the fifty three man roster for the first time the marge xs four season so yes it needs just lamar jackson and his backup all right. The last season Ravens were focused to us four quarterbacks because of you know injury in cova they had to be prepared this year. Baltimore is going with tyler. Huntley as only quarterback behind a jackson the ravens are hoping mcsorley clears waiver and can get signed to the practice squad. That's what they have to wait on after they released a baltimore also released veterans of pernille. Mcphee and anthony levine. Both are expected to get a resigned after wide receiver Bates miles boycotting get placed on short term. Injury reserved all right but yet they traded. Sean weighed a greg. Mates in been brinson tied in eric tomlinson wide receiver. Devin gerry in a host of other guys. But those are the main ones for show defensive tackle just analysis of course Those guys are got released. injury reserve jk dobbins unfortunately as reported that he had Season ended injury just past week and injury. Waved include out inside linebacker. Taro alaka in wide receiver. Dion cain who's gonna go cincinnati bengals. They showed some aggressiveness when it came to trimming their offense of line in the preseason which is surprise on monday. The bengals traded twenty eighteen first round. Pick billy price to the new york giants in exchange for defensive tackle. Bj hill then on tuesday. The team waived nine hundred ninety. Four round pick mike jordan who who started in one thousand nine games over the past two seasons with them so that happened but you along with that they Real wave released a cow. Schumer the quarterback tied in that is moss son of a randy moss Guard michael jordan. A lot of michael jordan's more than i thought running back trayvon williams Defensive tackle rene Ran her to see running back trivia williams as a former aggie be waived in released. But i'm sure he'll make another roster or released practice squad for sure because there is talented cleveland browns. The browns have several potential. Special teams saul were fighting for their last spots on the fifty three man roster including receiver cadarache hodge linebacker logic lee and receiver. Joe nate not sin. But in the end cleveland elected to keep four running backs estate including the artist. Johnson who along with rookie running back to metric felton now figures to play a big role in the game. All right so that's what they'll more than likely used them for. Keep them in travel with them for Also notable people safety elisha bitten while receiver jamarcus bradley tied in jordan francs. Koby set Porter gusting linebacker. Willie harvey junior and more These guys are you know hoping to see what happens. There reserve suspended. Include damien davis do our receiver offensive. Tackle greg senate and offensive guard. Drew for pittsburgh gotta go over to the steelers as it became clear throughout training. Camp quarterback dewayne haskins played his way onto pittsburgh roster asking rounds out the quarterback ground headline a by ben about say ben stiller by ben rawson burger in featuring mason rudolph as his backup. The primary backup. Josh dobbs who was vying for that third spot landed on i r with the season ending injuries sustained in the final preseason game beyond the quarterback battle the steelers made unexpected cuts on the interior offensive line keeping just two guards in kevin dotson turner The team released bj fini- and rashad Coward who each had a compelling case to basically take to basically make the team as versatile Backup coward himself Field in the team. The first team with dotson watson Recover from his early camp ankle. Injury in feeney was capable of playing either guard or center. So that's always good to have that dual situation for now. The offensive line has just eight members. Just eight all right. they're working with so. It's a little shaky probably out of people that was released in a way. They i feel like they have one of the smallest list but it does include a receiver of cody y receiver rico bossy running back jalen Samuel tiding kevin radar In office line. Chaz green just to name some people There's more of course but still way less than a lot of other teams if asked me all right. Who home mouthful. i know. I'm sorry. I it's a lot but we're gonna get through it all right so based off of the way. This just went closely german. So we're going to do is probably going to do.

So shout out to all of our goes out there man onto y'all all month have a good time with twenty one on notice to dealing with a lot but enjoy yourself. Nobody is ninety september. That's why i'm shutting them out. I just started doing that more often. You know gotta so to listen to some love. I feel like You know at least make them feel special moments right. Nobody really shot to all my listeners. Because we listened to period. I miss you you my frame. All right we're going gonna jump now as we continue to discuss. These waved and release players over to the afc south. Start off with the houston texans because they did release not shots. They actually kept quarterback to shine wasn't on a roster. No this isn't a roster cut but by keeping the quarterback on his roster. The texans are using a spot on their fifty three man roster a roster on a player they don't expect to play for them this season so that is something interesting to keep in mind as we know watching face twenty two lawsuits alleging of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior. I don't know if we have to say that for legal purposes or not. But that's going on for people that are happy to be listening to this podcast. And don't know anything about that. All right after cutting jeff driscoll houston is now carrying three quarterbacks. Tyrod taylor rookie davis mills and to shawn watson so i feel like that's a fair affair trimmed there But i will say a lot of people are ruined for them to pick up. The shaw Pick cam newton A nist yes. The teas texans is one of the one of the teams that i was saying. That there's two to three teams. That i feel like would actually Could start him or you know willing to pick him up to make it you know. Be the backup something of that. They did like i said mentioned earlier as well trade defensive in shack loss in other players that will waive slash release include titan anthony clear db shaheen carter receiver. Kiki tay who has been with them for believe a couple years so that's interesting Running back buddy. How is the only running back that was released after you know. They have an incumbent of rent veteran running backs lined up. So that was the only one surprise. Their linebacker showed thomas And and a few other guys but those are the main covert indianapolis colts. They didn't make any surprise cuts to get their roster down twenty fifty-three there wasn't much competition outside of who would be the team's backup quarterback or potential starter. During camp jacob. Easson was the front runner for most of the camp over sam linger. He officially locked up. Deposition etlinger went down with a knee injury that will keep him out several weeks. Etlinger injury leaves. The cult would just two quarterbacks easing in carson on the roster which we know carson situation it actually can't assume everybody knows that carson winces supposedly coming back sooner but you know he had foot surgery dow's putting them out for five to twelve weeks So kind of air. We don't really truly no but they made. It almost seemed like he could start week one. We'll see really going to find out within the next six days before First game comes up. It wouldn't be a surprise though if they added another one until another quarterback until elegant returns One intriguing thing colds did do is show their premium on having pass rushers As they six defensive ends on the roster so they are definitely trying to get quarterbacks. I mean they do have to compete with them Tough quarterback competition in their division. So you know. They know that the best way to get those guys stopped it. Slows teams down is to slow down their quarterbacks that are dual threat so make sense Other people name that Got releases well Include wide receiver to wreak black linebacker. Curtis bolden defensive tackle andrew brown. Cornerback anthony chesley end up. More jacksonville. Jaguars They had a pretty critical camp especially for a defensive tackle tavern Brian heading into final year of his rookie contract and he survived to make initial roster. Despite missing tom on despite missing time on the non football injury list and the reserve slash cova list at the beginning of training camp. The teams twenty eighteen first round pick has been disappointing in lost his starting job last season. Two undrafted rookie doug costing who didn't make the roster this season so keep that in mind but defensive coordinator joe cullen raved about brian's strength last week and said he needs to work on finishing plays so i guess they still have some. You know some hoping traded players for those. Don't know quarterback gardner men's shoe yes. The guy had been running the show out there for like the last two years. They traded him. He's gone quarter. Cornerback sidney jones. The fourth also got traded People also got released wave include wide receiver. Jalen can't cornerback. Lorenzo burns Wide receiver jeff Running back nathan. Cortel in a quarterback. Jake lighten just to name some people few others and then In your ashram make sure. I didn't forget anybody But yes a tough situation to be in Jaguars coming in here with rookie quarterback rookie ryan bad injured But they you know. Like i said are keeping keeping the people they need handy for the future tennessee. Titans release fourth. Rounder days fit. Fitz patrick in this release time The titans traded fourth fifth and seven round picks to the panthers to move up and select fitzpatrick with the one hundred and ninth. Pick this year. Fitzpatrick struggled early in camp earlier. This month coach. Mike verbal said the rookie had to do a lot to earn more significant reps of fitzpatrick seemed to settle in wants to titans went to tampa for joint practices with the buccaneers which was a highlighted. By twenty three yard touchdown reception in their preseason match up but he his late push wasn't enough even though the titans kept seven receivers on their fifty three man roster he just didn't cut it other views to actually one of two three receivers that got cut so him. Fred brown and mason kings kenzi But you know other. People in other positions offers alignment coal. defensive back breen bobby cow Entitled in miller forestall are some of the people that that happen to a reserve slash cova nineteen lists because clearly raven over there. Include their starting quarterback ryan tannehill Tied in golf swam cork center. been jones right guard. Nate davis running back. Germany nichols wide receiver. Racy mcmath linebacker just in march lillard linebacker hallard laundry landry. That third linebacker. Nick sunbird like they got bodies over there on their covert lists so situation to be in But we kind of know what those guys are capable of differently A team that had strong and has a lot of debt. so hopefully everybody does come back healthy though That wouldn't be no fun. If that's so see west would have going on over there as far as people being released will. Let's start with the broncos. The broncos didn't have the high profile. How did that happen. You know nothing too crazy. It won't move the needle much outside of personnel meetings but in house it was a tough call for broncos to waive quarterback ryan Robin ryan who started a bronco win over the new york jets last season and is developmental Prospect of the broncos think has a future got caught in in the squeeze. You know the squeezed caused at least in part by a lean toward defense defense. George payton's first year as general manager. The broncos kept twenty seven players on defense on the initial roster as compared to the twenty three on offense so you see where leaning their way toward In the emergency of youth as eight of the teams ten draft picks made it. They are trying to stay young make sense the roster also included undrafted rookie in twenty eight of the players on it are in their first second or third season in the league. Bunch of young guys right traded a wide receiver trinity benson. Some of those guys that wave. They'll include Tackle quinn bailey tied in sean buyer. Wide receiver terry tyree cleveland. Running back demaria crockett and a host of other guys okay. The kansas city chiefs Mindful of last year super bowl disaster kip tin offensive lineman in in eleventh kyle long on the fiscal unable to perform on the up for those that don't know just start calling the These on the pope included Included are eight players. Who weren't with the team last year. So eight new offensive lineman out of that eleven the that should you know pretty much guaranteed that they should be all right when it comes to offensive lineman injuries come this season like last season. So a lot of receivers a day dropped about four receivers One quarterbacking shane Bush cornerback. Marlin character in a couple of other guys man. They had to make that transition. Las vegas raiders. Call it a tie between veterans safety. Call joseph a first round pick of the team in twenty sixteen who resigned after a year away And was expected to be guiding light for youngsters like jonathan abraham trevan maury into Gillespie in speedy receiver john brown. Who got one point. Seven five million sign bonus and had his one point four nine million dollars salary for twenty twenty one. Guaranteed the raiders are going with a five-man wide receiver core on their initial fifty three man. Roster that is henry rugs bryant edwards hunter renfro zeh jones. And willie snead. Asked me if i believe this is gonna be the end of it. No i guarantee you. Devil gets more receivers that didn't make it include dillard's donor Dj turner so. They didn't already have a lot to work. In the first place. Tidings released a mad bushman guard. Lester cotton senior defensive tackle mad dickerson Oh i forgot a wide receiver. Keelan dose okay. So all of those guys there. It was their time they came. They saw they did not conquer reserve side. Suspended list in quarter. Cornerback nevin lawson right. You know raiders raise that team you know. They do find other ways to win. Just passing the ball. Guess i gotta give him that but you definitely want to have that depth in case anything ever comes up injury wise or not. You just want you know de security. So i don't know. I'm still pretty sure they're going to go out there and find something that they feel is going to be a solid fit For their own organization. So we'll see the los angeles chargers though. One of the biggest mysteries in cap is who would win the kicker battle between michael bagley an interesting viscous zeno and now we know the money. Badger is no more. Yes vincent may three goals last year for the forty niners in has been fairly consistent. This train camp bagley made twenty four of thirty three last year and was booed by fans at preseason games and so it was decided by coach brandon. Stay on cut their that vizino gets to not. He doesn't have the experience that bagley did but he said he was the stronger leg in. I guess the fans had their vote to high the cookie crumbles so he's out man wide receiver michael bandy outside linebacker dabbing blow me a running back darius bradwell and some other guys out there as well all right so w somebody's gonna pick these also If i didn't make that clear earlier is dead when they wave these guys. Release them as a timetable for other teams to get a chance to claim them. Then when time comes they can sign them if they choose to okay. That's just how it works. Well of course that would mean they have to get rid somebody else to if they want to. But that's still up to the team's discretion nfc east. I know this exciting. When you wanna come to innoc- see what's going on here right well. There shouldn't be much to say about the dallas cowboys. Definitely there shouldn't be any immediate shock especially at the cowboys. Fifty three man roster does not have a long snapper with jake may quadri would drink. Jake's release but we can explain would six players needing to be on the roster for a day before heading to injury eighty two heading to injured reserve. The cowboys had to get creative. Dallas has five kobe. Nineteen exemptions for cd lamb a connor williams demonte qazi carlos watson in noah brown all right so when it comes to jake who does not go through waivers. He's a veteran Makes up the last spot will be resigned in A day or two. And we'll get his buyback so he'll be back. It's just they have to make something happen with their cuts. But somebody they did cut quarterback garrett gilbert you know gotta monitor feel like they had enough at dip You know so interesting. Ed also safety dearest. Thomas quarterback deontay burton Offensive tackle eric smith just to hamilton. Johnny dixon quarterback bandon uchi. They got rid of After everything he did for ya came believe. Y'all did that to him receive. Oreo mitchell in. Reggie davis aaron parker. Um so yeah. Like i said i'm between the cove in nineteen lists wade release plus more of course Pretty much still look the same. If you ask me new york giants traded for two interior linemen. Billy price From the bengals as i mentioned earlier in being brinson From the ravens In the past two days they did that. They needed to upgrade the line. Obviously it was also somewhat surprising. They could outside linebacker find a othing gabo After paying him one million dollars to sign his off-season of contract in kip to fullbacks granted. Colon gillespie is more of you know special teamer and ally penny doubles as a tailback so those guys are a little more versatile Except i mean we expect more moves to come though New york newark did leave. It's increasingly thin at tied imposition with evan. Ingram who has a calf injury car road off was a foot injury both questionable for week. One so could definitely see some more changes happening. They're definitely a number of guys added to the company of the linebacker. Funnier because you've quarterback. Brian lower iq running back corey climate Tied in kia griffin stewart. Wire seaver davis still sales. Wide receiver damian wills willis trip and more you know Chris johnson defensive back not running back a whole number of guys philadelphia eagles. The eagles waived wide receiver. Travis forum obviously drivers association on his team people. Relax buddy lee. Did leave the team in receiving yards Last season with five hundred thirty nine. He was one of the most productive wideouts in football over five game. Stretch catching twenty nine balls for four hundred thirty five yards with four touchdowns between weeks four eight but cooled considerably down the stretch He followed that within inconsistent training. Camp Then you know he has now been waived by three different teams since entering the league with detroit. Lions at twenty nineteen so pretty much each year a day. Somebody gets rid of them. Unfortunately they did trade offense. Alarming matt pryor And there is a list of guys that also released no-one to spectacular though. Nothing too crazy so really can. Just go to the next team in the washington. Football team Cutting running back pain barber because it signals. A thought process is big news for them. Two weeks ago. He was a lock in barber. Might return but washington wanted to keep youth elsewhere Including undrafted back. Jared patterson who impressed during those two weeks. It's not that. Barbara's Is great but he fits a special role specific role that they are trying to fulfil for short yard or running back type of guy. Plays you know Replacement for antonio gibson But the team remains in a building face and therefore didn't make more designed to win moos now it's evident with other teams including titan us. Sammy reas defensive in chicago tony. Both factor much bigger down. I mean Both factor much bigger down the road then now also no major names in a other company. That guy released actually note does not true wires. he was as they arrived in receiver. Tony brown pretty decent gas. Let them both go as well as quarterback stephen mounts all right. It's time for a quick commercial break when we come back. We're going this up. Talk about the last few teams. We need to discuss so stay with us. We'll be right back.

But i'm not come out for you lay show up on what's going on and who is out all right so we're going to the nfc north where chicago has been having to figure out. Who's going to be the quarterback after announcing that they are going ahead with andy dalton They kept their first round. Rookie selection of course and But definitely had to clean some things up and take care of getting rid of some other guys The release of cornerback desmond. Font was largely expected after the veteran left the team for eighteen days following a debt of his father The move however further calls into question. The bears plan at cornerback. Following the off season release a former pro bowler cow fuller besides tra- find the bears. Also let go veteran corner artie. Burns and rookie six round. Pick thomas graham junior whom chicago is likely to want back on the practice squad Look for the bears to be active on the waiver. Wire in an attempt to feel holes in their secondary. They're probably pick up a couple of guys that they they've done for them okay. released in waved include receiver isaiah cutler offense of guard diets. Here is salem Ofensive guard arlington hamburger in a few others reserve in suspended. Include running back one of their main starting running backs to wreak cohen and defensive lineman mario which Detroit lions released kicker randy bullock in. Zane gonzales as well as offensive tackle to rail crosby who was a starter on last year squad. Another surprise move was letting go of wide receiver bouchon pyramid however they did acquire. See re trinity vincent in a twenty twenty three six round draft pick from the broncos in exchange for the twenty twenty two picks fit in seventh round. So where they now will. They released a also receiver. Victor bolden nose tackle miles brown. Cornerback mike ford safety. Elijah howard receiver damon. rapidly edna. Quite a number guys number guys. They had to go unfortunately Also analysts giovane mckinney. Running back Dedrick meals Reserved suspended list includes the end. Just sean karnal all right. These are guys that they get to get away with still having around but they still have to get down to fifty three in order to please the fails in their pockets. Green bay packers keeping lift. Tackle david back at ari. Obviously because he's on all right remember puppies guys can't play formats issues paints It means they're all pro. Protector of aaron rodgers. Blindside will miss the first six games. All right that's what happens when you can't perform out you'll miss the first six games of the regular season while he continues to rehab from his lift. Acl repair opening day was never real. I mean Yeah was never realistic. And it turns out Neither is another before week. Seven of the only other option was putting him on a fifty three and taking it week by week but they're clearly not going to russian back one of their most important players. You gotta take any. You've gotta be smart about it. That's slightly bigger news. Dan their own trade of the day. Acquiring punter corey bolger quays. Why does everybody in the league at crazy names last names. It's a novel so corbeau from the rams to kick it. They received So they also released a number of skill players man. I'm talking about received wine. Winfrey running back. Dexter williams running back. Patrick taylor. Wide receiver Saint brown wire seaver damon hanson quarterback kurt bicker and more. Like a lotta guys. All right. pulp. The only player is going. To be david becker ari but they also have on the reserve slash suspended tied in j sternberg from an giggle minnesota. Vikings the biggest surprise. I guess might not be much of a surprise at all when it comes to the wants to. Dust settle on who they had to released. Vikings way defensive in ever seen griffin who. They resigned last week. Running backs in return amir abdulah who got a ton of reps during the final two. Preseason games andrew paolo who was only long snapper on the roster. The only one Minnesota is dealing with several significant injuries to players. It kept on their fifty three man. Roster like are like earth smith. Junior and christian door saw so. It's likely the vikings will be able to resign. Some of the veterans day released once they put Put a handful of players on injury reserved in create a few rosser spots Required in the tray was tidying chris. heard herndon herned done chris. Herndon all right But that's what it looks like there. Oh also wave slash injured Include wide receiver chad bb safety luther kirk off. His guard drew samya in quarterback. Nate stanley the nfc south at l. Man atlanta falcons. They keep three quarterbacks under initial fifty three man roster including former first round. Pick josh rosen. As i mentioned earlier as they try to sort out the backup to matt ryan. It's entirely possible shuffles throughout the next few days of as players get released. But it's another chance for rose to learn from a top flight quarterback after being tutored by ryan. Patrick anton brady. The past. two years. Can't be mad at that. Obviously gotta learn something about this by this point right Waving released include running back. Caleb huntley wide receiver. Chris arale safety dwayne johnson junior not direct sun Defensive lineman offensive lineman willie beavers linebacker cobi jones and more Wires he was last injured. Include punter dom may gio of physically unable to perform pup is offensive lineman matt gano. -oday cova reserved tied in parker posey. Are carolina released twenty carolina panthers for those that don't know Released twenty nineteen third rounder. A pick will greer which you know might seem obvious because he's a quarterback but he was the third option Don't be surprised if somebody added beano. Somebody is added behind who they have left. Which sam darnold when. Pj walker so yes pj walker from the other league. I think the xfl came from right. is now backing up. Sam darnold who not so many thinking make duty entire season as the starter so pj might have a chance. But at least he'll you know they trying to get somebody to add for the practice practice squad but the biggest move was releasing a joey. Sly carolina was so confident in the kicker coming into camp that no competition was created his struggles force a trade with the giants last week Four ryan's sinato So the panthers will enter the season with a kicker who has no attempts in a regular season game. It's a very risky situation Linebacker joe josh minds. Why received Omar bayless running back spencer brown anymore. All join that party of people who had to pick up Season ending injuries. Include a long snapper. Thomas fletcher not sure what that guy did to get that. But that's what happened narain reserve spend a cornerback. Aj bowie so a Guilty he'll be back they're going to keep them a new orleans. Saints placed receiver michael thomas on their reserve physically unable list. Which means he'll miss the at least six weeks. It's going to be tough for a new starting quarterback in jameis winston. But i'm sure he'll be able to make it happen especially with coach peyton making sure that They make it easy for him. I'm sure There was some optimism. That thomas could back even sooner from From his june ankle injury surgery. But the saints wanted to give him ample time to recover fully plays. It might help clean air if they're still a little foggy in there from what happened is off season That will mean though that a big role is coming early for wide receiver marquis. Calloway amtrak wants mitt. Who was expected to be back soon from his hamstring injury. Receivers deontay harris Ty montgomery and little joran humphry will also have roles after making initial fifty three man roster and it wouldn't be surprised to see the saints bring back veteran chris hogan after initially releasing him. But now because you know. Mike's out they're going to probably need somebody's sitting in that space. Also as mentioned people released in wet or waved include running back. Devante freeman devante freeman. Who knows the running back. That was starting for the atlanta falcons. When they went to the super bowl yeah when they went to super bowl in more. You know he's kind of been bouncing around little bit on the saints in eight released and they also got rid of quarterback trevor siemian. But we know you know was in there. But i guess they decided to have jamie's Jamison already having a backup for him with the person he was competing for the star job with That need saying who all the way at the bottom of that depth chart fullback Like i said chris hogan's gone receiver. Kevin why Coombe baker ever seaver and tied in ethan wolf include some more of the individuals that had to be let go tampa bay bucks well. This is a team that brought back a lot of their starters and a lot of starts with the reason they were at the super bowl. So are argue with them too much about who you know. They released Not gonna be the people that has taken them to the ballgames. Obviously so who did they release. Well the bucks party ways with tighten. Tanner hudson in we'll carry on With only three tight ends but three tight ends. That are relevant there. Three tight ends include Grunk howard in a break so despite oj. Howard in cameron break. Both coming off of injuries in hudson's proud prowess as a pass catcher coach. Bruce arians Hudson blocked regressed regressed his blocking regressed. A grant Steward the two hundred fifty ninth overall draft pick after mr irrelevant along with a fifth round draft pick. J. brit beat out of veteran. Joe jones for the fourth in fifth inside linebacker spots while cornerback de delaney beat out veteran antonio hamilton seventh round draft. Pick chris wilcox in her miller For the fifth corner spot. Chris cooper though He would who signed just before the start of training camp are in the fourth safety spot over giovane hagan. Who'd been with the team all last year. with four players on the reserve cove nineteen lists. The bugs will have the additional moves to make when activating those players. Excuse me People that are also was ryan griffin yet. Mr rank griffin demand. Help tom brady water out of the boat party. They let him go now. Who will be there to help out parole.

Nfc west the you know the innoc- west is arguably the best and it is our last division to discuss nfc west arizona cardinals only one receiver from the trio drafted in two thousand nineteen remains following the release of kashani johnson. Keyshawn johnson are That's andy is bill. Johnson had a shot to be in the receiver See rotation this season but with the addition of aj green in rodale more and the emerged Emerging of antonia wesley johnson. Johnson didn't show enough during camp both at receiver and on special teams to earn a spot. All right he wasn't alone though He also joined by safe. decrease banjo. Robbed greg dortch Linebacker cow fits offensive lineman shawn harlow Tied and ross travis receiver. Aj richardson Cornerback picasso nelson and many many more. Possibly if not the most in the second most guys released on the team came from here. early retirement look-alikes coming from outcome. Butler cornerback I think only people just touched on a little bit. You know Was famously the guy that made the last second interception in super bowl for the patriots against The seahawks menino. He's made his way over to arizona and now apparently he is retiring. Is that a guarantee. Well this what is being talked about. But i guess we'll see if he stays retired. Don't be surprised if you have see coming out of retirement. Post the los angeles rams the most intriguing unexpected position battle of the preseason came down to putting the rams retired the nfl's highest paid punter in johnny hecker. Who rams coach sean. Mcvay said agreed to rework his contract and traded for year pro corey of boll jaure quiz along with twenty three seventh round. Pick to the green bay packers in exchange for a twenty twenty three six round picks On top of that trade the individuals that will also wave. Were defensive back Braun tae hairs linemen jeremiah. Conelly wide receiver jeremiah. Haley in More exhibitor jones running back on injury reserve list and then covert watchlist offensive. Guard coleman shelton alright. San francisco are at the forty niners who we go man. Still praying these guys. All stay hilty are There weren't many significant surprises though on the forty niners cutlass to get to their free three Though for the first time under coach cow shanahan. They kept just two quarterbacks. That's all they got jimmy g. in trae lance third string Signal caller nate sud feel was released. But he's a strong candidates comeback to the practice squad In remained the third quarterback there for the time being that decision also allowed the niners to keep defensive. Tackle maurice hurst on the active roster for his Cut down so that. He can land on short term injury reserve if needed until his high ankle. Spring hills traded linebacker jones griffin as said And then other people. That was waived defensive in alex barrett wide receiver travis benjamin Senator jake brindell safety ha-had Clinton dixon also play with the cowboys wouldn't be surprised if Go back and grab him as they need more depth there M more okay The reserved injured suspended. List is jordan willis People on pub db trae various more running back. Jeff wilson okay and then the seahawks last but not least the seattle seahawks. We'll see how. Big the seahawks trade for sidney jones to four the ends of being. He's been limited to thirty one games over four seasons including only one as a rookie after suffering torn achilles at his pro day very unfortunate situation but he he was considered a first round talent Before that injury he has some experience. Fourteen career starts and a nice ball production. Over the last two years foreign exceptions seventeen deflections the seahawks like his toughness and instincts and the price was reasonable. Seattle gave up a twenty twenty two six round pick and will jones one point five million dollars in twenty twenty one. The summer has only Reinforced a widely-held belief that cornerbacks I mean that corner. Cornerback is the seahawks biggest weakness. Their trade for jones which is not yet official. Doesn't solve the problem on their on on on its own. Sorry but there's enough upside to think it can help at the very lease all right wide. Receiver cody thomas wide. Receiver penny heart wide receiver. Aaron fuller wide receiver travis until vian while receiver connor whittington receiver kate johnson wide receiver. Dorese rosen all. Were released a release every receiver that they got that they had almost Should our guest releases. Just weren't that good enough to rei but no gay guys. Man that are hoping to be picked up or at least put on Practice squad for quite a few other teams all those guys were big enough bad enough to make it this far. So let's discredit them They definitely earned what they to be. You know on field plan football Because dashes who they are. That's good. I'm pretty sure that's what they know. So don't be surprised if you hear a lot of these names backup as just literally what's going to happen is they're going to get picked up stuff's going to happen to where they're back in the game all right that covers it though. Man that is the teams are the big names released. That's updates on them where they stand for this Three man cut man in Stay tuned man.

Rights got these games coming up but before we get into the players. Give you more details on that. I just like to touch on the money in coaching. Oh man bid is fun being a coach but it got to be even better playing this week. Jimbo fisher head coach exam. Football team is now going to be the second highest pay coach in college. Football so fisher. Entering his fourth season at taxonomy originally signed a ten year seventy five million dollar contract when he was hired away from florida state after leading them In that program for eight seasons of fissures new deal will keep him at ten years now running through december thirty first twenty thirty one and we'll be worth more than ninety million dollars. It placed him second nationally behind. Alabama's nick sabin as the highest paid coaches in college. Football saving received a raise and extension this past summer. That will take him to an average of ten point. Six million dollars annually through the twenty twenty eight season fisher is twenty six and ten in his three. Am you will paid an annual salary of nine million dollars beginning january first twenty twenty two an amount that increases to nine million one hundred fifty thousand dollars on january first twenty twenty three fisher base salary increases by one hundred thousand dollars in each of the following years with all other performance incentives remaining the same so big money. They're mad only a dream for people like me maybe one day. I don't know. But i know you gotta put in a work. A lot of things are headed to you in this game. You definitely gotta show some success. Which he's been sean pretty much. So far i think this year is really going to be the one that has to prove it all but i guess we'll see at the end of this. I mean clue extension. Now it's time to show you know. His recruiting skills all right. Let's see if it came through since the day walk through the door. See what this program looks like especially with their neighbors not gonna get into the conference. Oh he's definitely got to be on his ps and qs. We'll see how it ends up. All right now get into the top players man definitely people that you wanna look for. Look out for man. A lot of guys. The great in highschool get to college. It's not the same name. Goes quiet or they look good in college. Something happens slip up or just. Don't get the time or not in the right place night at the right school to be seen and they slipped between the cracks only a view that small percentage make it to the big leagues man in these top. Twenty five out to share with you right now are the ones that are almost guaranteed to end up on a team next year i. So let's check out the twenty five people to look out for and number twenty five. We have justin ross wide receiver. Clemson he six four hundred and five pounds third year. Sophomore clemson's first game will be against georgia In charlotte this saturday. This guy here as you know pretty much made a name for so by putting up some big numbers. He was one of college. Football's best receiver than twenty eighteen and twenty nineteen catching one hundred twelve passes for one thousand eight hundred sixty five yards seventeen touchdowns more than seven hundred. Fifty of those yards came after the kitsch. Ross did have some issues with drops in two thousand nineteen but is expected to bounce back this season number twenty four trent duffy cornerback washington. He's five eleven one hundred ninety five pounds a junior. Their first game is versus montana. This saturday he is someone else. That has made a name for itself These last three years Wasn't much to see from you. Know snap steady. Had his rookie season. Macduff allowed three catches for forty one yards as the primary defender and had an interception just last year So while you know you really would like to see you know what you saw. Twenty twenty one is going to be a hugh season to see where he really goes from here. All right number twenty. Three's zach harrison. He's a defensive. In a idaho state six to sixty five of junior class ranking ohio. State is gonna play against minnesota tonight. So that's one you might wanna check out. He has played only four hundred ninety snaps in the past two seasons with five point five sacks and nine point five total tackles all right so he's got a little bit more but he's very capable at six six five man. It's hard to keep that in away from the quarterback That's what we're going to have to wait and see number. Twenty two belongs to drake jackson. Outside linebacker of usc six four to fifty five junior they go against a san jose state. This saturday jackson showed a ton of promise as a freshman pass rusher in twenty nineteen up five point five sacks and fifteen total tackles for loss. He had only two sex in six games last season. But the talent is still there is still obviously still see it Just watch him off your screen. He could be one of the best edge rusher in the country. This season I'd like to see him improve in his technique and build out a few more moves to get by offensive tackles but once he figured that out. It's all up from there. Man number twenty one roger. mcgarvy cornerback. Auburn sees a solid six foot. One ninety but he's a senior their game is versus akron. this saturday his tape. Yeah his tapers another one-to-watch watch of auburn. This is one that you wanna check out I think he's under the radar right now. He kinda quiet. He's very instinctive and has an ice size at that position. Now he did give up a couple of big plays last season so he needs to be more consistent from snaps to snap. I definitely have pretty much prove themselves. He but he wasn't even close to the tigers. Biggest issue on defense can put it all on him. A lot of you stuff. That happens in football being in. It's a team. Sport is almost a chain reaction but he does have three picks incomplete pass coverage on the next level. So we're going to see what he does this season another. Usc member drake a london. All right so yes. Usc has a team. Full of drake's drake london wide receiver. Six five to ten junior. They go against san jose state. Like i said this saturday. He also he played on. Us's basketball team in two thousand nine hundred and twenty twenty. He has a huge frame for receiver. Though he's a little lean low skinny as you can see from the to ten he towers over pac twelve defenders and he can out leap just about any corner. So london has seventy two catches for one thousand sixty nine yards and eight touchdowns the past two seasons. He has dropped only one of his one hundred and six targets so that should tell you enough all right number. Nineteen andrew boot cornerback. Clemson six foot. One ninety five junior boot was overshadowed nationally last season by darin kendrick who is now transferred to georgia but the tapes showed something different. He was really really good. If you really paying attention If you're just looking at his you know counting stats to interceptions. Four total pass break pass breakups. You don't see how he looked really on outside on those white outs. Quarterbacks rarely through his way because that's how tight he kept it all right number eighteen were touching alabama. You know they got a loaded. crew over. there are saw alabama's christian harris inside linebacker. Six to two hundred and thirty two pound junior alabama's first game versus miami in atlanta this saturday There's is a few spots from you know the early big boys that are coming out just possibly you know the next guy up to make a splash in order to get on there though he's highly valued in nfl these days especially you know like linebackers at this position are going to see many middle linebackers. Go in the top five picks anymore. That's just not how it works. But hairs had a complete twenty twenty season. With seventy seven total tackles four point five sacks and interception the folks at espn stats and information counted. Thirteen missed tackles for harris. And notice that those on tape as well as you know. You'll see him. He has the speed at physical traits to get the football but he needs to improve on getting ball carriers down to the ground Which you know was tom inside. Linebackers job is keep that on their quarterback and on that Running back in the backfield. So he shows some effort there. And i'm quite sure a lot of scouts are gonna wanna talk to him number. Seventeen here. Ellum quarterback florida of quarterbacks on the list floridas first game versus florida atlanta. On saturday. his tape is a little inconsistent but he has flags enough over the past two seasons to be considered of the top defense backs defensive backs in two thousand twenty two class as six foot two. He has long arms stolid frame. Little skinny just wide enough to be able to reach. He had five interceptions over the past. Two seasons up. Eleven throws twenty twenty florida's known for producing defensive backs with their last first rounder in twenty twenty. Cj henderson who went to the jags number nine ellum could be the next guy to do the same number. Sixteen the georgia bulldogs adam anderson outside linebacker six foot five to thirty senior. I'll they will be playing clemson this saturday. Out of all the twenty tape been study. Anderson's might have been the most impressive at least one of them. He flies off the edge to get to the quarterbacks never takes plays off. Anderson had a great season as an edge. Rusher racking up six point five sacks seventeen quarterback pressures into forced fumbles. He is likely to stick as a three or four outside linebacker at the next level. That's more than likely team. That's want to use them more Use that type of scheme and he has. The potential to be a big time sat artists. Which is what. They're probably gonna be home for so. Just look after him. All right. melik willis quarterback liberty. If you haven't already heard about them let me talk to you about. And he's six foot one to fifteen little undersize will quarterback but he's fourth year junior They play saturday versus campbell. The auburn transfer remember came from auburn. Had a big twenty season. Throwing twenty touchdown passes in just six interceptions while adding fourteen rushing touchdowns and nine hundred forty four yards on the ground. His seventy eight point seven. Qbr ranked sixteenth in the country. And i'm just saying well we ever we see this year is probably going to be better than last year. So he's only going to be and then he still has some more time under his bill. If need be to get seen a little bit more. But i promise you he's going to be on a team somewhere. His name is going to be on a jersey for someone regardless of what the state is if it's a starter as backup his He's going to be able to go to the next level. All right back to ohio state a big name receiver. When it's top receivers in the country. Chris A six for one eight senior. You know we may have wrote in. May that you know you may have heard that he probably would have been a day to pick. Had he entered the twenty twenty one draft and now he has a chance to be the first receiver off the board next april. He's one of the best deep threats in this class. He has averaged fifteen air yards per target in his career. Any en is an improved route runner with stiller hands. You know they just stick to am i glue. He has one thousand nine hundred. pass two seasons. This guy is a point maker number. Thirteen aidan hutchinson diene michigan. Six six to sixty five senior. Catch them in the catch them in the game. This saturday versus western michigan. I think he could have a big year is very much so possible. That's why he is ranked here. He played only one hundred and forty four defensive snaps last season before he injured his leg against indiana and had to have surgery unfortunately But the michigan defensive Crater after you know he was hurt. They were hurting without him. He was outstanding as a sophomore. In twenty nine thousand nine putting up four point five sacks in creating havoc in the backfield ten point five total tackles for losses what he was making happen and don't be surprised if you see him. Bounced back this season after recovery in making even bigger show for himself number. Twelve gorna arkansas. I know arkansas one of those rare ones. You see on this like this but if you're from running area if you're a fan that you should get excited why because you'll have an outstanding receiver in trae lawn burks. He six three to thirty two junior. You know being at that high end way that already kind of puts you at it advantage. but yeah their first game this week of versus rice on saturday. But this is the catch. He's is at slot which is typically not the case. It's a little. it's a little outlandish. But he did a ton of damage there for arkansas last season. all seven. touchdowns came from that alignment. He can break tackles one hundred seventy of his eight hundred twenty yards. Last season came after first contact and he has some speed though not too sure if he'll head off the charts at the combi for fag but Burks did have four drops in two thousand twenty so we want to see him. Clean that up and see what he can do number. Eleven george carlin deanna. Purdue six four to seventy junior day play oregon state this saturday. He played just three games last season. A positive cove in nineteen tests in november cut short his campaign sophomore year he had two sacks and seven pressures and espn stats and information credited. Him with a two incompletions created As a freshman in twenty nineteen he had seven point five sacks in seventeen total tackles for loss. He's fantastic four three in prospect to hit double digit sacks this season so the end are definitely making move as you see this as a quarterback dna receiver type list. But i'm quite sure. Come across somebody else. That's going to be very special here soon. Number ten geared wilson wide receiver ohio state. So yes or house. They to top twenty five receivers. He six foot one hundred ninety three. He's a junior A and i mean he'll get an early chance to see We'll get earns chance to see the buckeyes with the new quarterbacks. Cj drown in his star receivers thursday night tonight He stroud backed up. Justin fields last season. So you should be solid. But talking about wilson wilson played mostly out of the slight last season kitchen forty-three passes and averaging almost seventeen yards per reception. He's dynamic with the ball in his hands and should get more reps outside in twenty twenty one. Now we're in the top ten. Of course you gotta start see some aggies man and i know you just heard. I said about being all these skilled players. Db's linebackers in there. But let's talk about the boys that need to get paid. All linemen takes in kenyan green. He space for three twenty five heavy. This guy we got so far on this list He's a junior taxonomy first game. This saturday versus can't stay tuned into that. If you wanna see him Kirkland kirkland neil. Green is a former guard but this will be his first season at left tackle for the aggies. Green has played both right and left guard in his career and were really curious to see how he fares In this move based on his tape edgardo guard he could be a first round pick and as expected him to struggle in. We're not sure if we should expect to struggle him in the transition. But i'm sure we'll be able to see it in this first five games Green has crazy talent. A lotta people. Compare him to First round selection out of usc lodge aveer tucker So don't be surprised if you see him. Go in the first. Round numeral ocho we have jackson kirkland offensive tackle out of washington is six foot seven so this is the tallest guy we had four to ninety five. So that means he's slim possibly can run fast. Which if you watch his tape you may see something their flesh in re watching his tapes only four games Because he only played in four games because of The season that they had it was an abbreviated season. But there were really got any mistakes. He just incredibly consistent. He didn't allow a single sack. Any excels in the run game. Two kirkland started twenty five games at right guard in two thousand eighteen and twenty nineteen before moving to left tackle last season. So don't be. I'm telling you you're gonna hear that name again. Keep it at the front of your mind as we get closer to the top. We're going to start seeing some of these guys that everybody are gonna need. Which is the most important gun field. The quarterback our first quarterback coming across here at number seven is sam. How out of north carolina six to twenty five junior There's a lot to like about him. he's very accurate ankle. Manipulate the pockets of fine time to throw it okay. He throws a nice deep ball in doesn't make many game chain mistakes as mentioned Beginning of this year the tar heels lost running back devante williams. An michael carter Wideouts the brown and das- newman to the nfl. They always able to get a been there so really curious to see how it works with this new cast. You can catch them. Playing virginia tech on friday back to am texas de marvan lille Our first interior alignment on this list. Yeah he he's obese. Little one of you know a lot of people's favorite prospect for this position because he's so versatile at on the defensive line he could play in any defense at the next level or at least. That's what's been described We liked the potential that he has at interior but he can also do edge. If need be is really hard to guys that can do the entire line. This is the forward He played incredibly hard in his always in the right spot at the right tom. Little had two point five sacks forty seven tackles anti forced from the last season he also picked off. Alabama's mag jones on deflect deflect iranian for forty three yards. All right so this has got brothers very athletic. All right like i mentioned earlier kissed him. This saturday versus state. I know i will be watching. Number five is cow. Hamilton safety out of notre dame he six four to nineteen. He's a junior Hamilton and the fighting irish start their season in tallahassee Where they going against. Florida state very exciting game to watch right there. You might wanna tune in and watch them. Duke it out man. He's one of the most versatile defenders in the country hampton has five interceptions in ten total pass breakups over the past two seasons. Any has sixty three total tackles in twenty twenty. He's an exciting possible. First round safety to be selected. Back obama offensive tackle. Evan neil has a massive frame instead of physical traits checkout ages. You know the clips. Igloo look them up on youtube and stuff like that if you need to see some his highlights because they are almost endless there bama did start him at left guard as a freshman between one thousand nine he'll be the crimson tide's left. Tackle this season as well I mean he'll be there left. Tackle so move from guard to left tackle Taken over for first round pick. Alex leatherwood That's usually a tough transition. But when you coaches especially ones of nick sabin in shoot jimmy I mean jimbo. Fisher has mentioned They know what they're doing so number. Three derek sting. Lee junior cornerback. Lsu six one one ninety five junior his ranking is all about. You know the ceiling here His freshman film when he was one of the best players on. Lsu's twenty nine hundred entitled titled team is tremendous. He didn't play much last season. But that can mostly be attributed to the entire lsu defense being dreadful. He has shown that he can lockdown. Sec receivers and he should start a start again when be shocking. If he does go top five pick in the draft. Next season you'll be able to catch derek This saturday as lsu takes on at ucla type two. Let's get to it. Who will be well number. Two is a quarterback in possibly the quarterback that is favourite to be number one off the board as far as quarterbacks go This upcoming draft the next one so spencer rattler out of oklahoma six one two. Oh five His third year. Sophomore the heisman trophy favorite. Had you know he did have a rough start in twenty twenty Keep in mind that he didn't get a fool spring as the start as the starter after he set the Season behind colin murray but was electric down the stretch going fifteen touchdown passes in tune exceptions and sooners final. Seven games that included four total touchdowns three through the air. While averaging ten point eight yards per attempt against florida in the kind of Rattler has been arm in can also beat teams with his legs He scrambled out of the pocket. Winning when things get dicey you can catch him versus two lane saturday in our number one guy. The way who's already making money off Eh eh in iol rules with What is the nf teas and stuff like that. With nike man We have cave on thibodeau the diene. Out of oregon. He's six five to fifty big boy. Who was a junior Could be twenty twenty two. You know this be the year. That a quarterback doesn't go i end. We'd see a defense in. It hasn't happened since twenty seventeen win the browns took myles garrett at number one and they also have to know more next year gig them But typically oh who was the number one ranked high school recruit into nineteen is an elite pass rushing talent with the quickness and ben to get double digits sex annually at the next level all right like yes in the nfl. He's can be able to do that right now. He's had nine sacks as a true freshman in two thousand nineteen and had three six and nine point. Five total tackles for loss in seven games.

His mother definitely helped out by sent him a little sweet message telling him he basically got the peru with that being said in The paperwork going into motion him being happy About where to look like him saying that his family's happy So nike just do what he loves to do. Man let me tell you. The sea hawks are just as happy to have twenty five year. Old adams locked in for a long term. Deal okay It ended on tuesday when they signed him for four years. Seventy million dollars extension. That makes him the infils highest paid safety. The deal has a mags value of seventy two million over the four New year's a twenty million dollar signing bonus include thirty eight million dollars guaranteed that was helps agents kevin connor and robert brown getting that done for him. The extension will be added to the final year of atoms. Rookie deal so he's now under contract through twenty twenty five. This also is an option. Bonus worth twelve point five million. That could be exercise on the first day of two thousand twenty two league year according to sources Of course his quarterback russell wilson gave them a shout out to congratulate him on social media. as well as a couple of the guys Adams was set to make nine point. Eight six million dollars in two twenty twenty one The final year of the rookie contract that he signed with the new york jets as a number six. Pick twenty seventeen. The seahawks inherited the contract when they acquired adams last summer for a package of pigs that included seattle's first round in twenty twenty one twenty two making it their bodus trade of the carol slash general manager john schneider era. Okay putting them together. This they did. They put a lot on the table to get jamal. Okay and i mean just in case. You don't know where jamal adams. Dan will as far as a quarterback at just the age of twenty five. He has twenty one point five career sacks that's the most by any db any defensive back in their first four seasons since sex have become official in nineteen eighty two so since they started recording.

One point five Adam harrison adrian wilson rodney Barber and adam are chillida okay. Those guys are people that you can understand that look battle retain his atoms. Get to the quarterback more than those guys remember what they did. Then you're kinda like wow. That is crazy all right now. Don't get me wrong. Advocating for football background. His father george adams was a nfl running back back in the day so he was happy to call him. Let them not good news In where he stands. Currently adams was the first team. All american I mean all pro selections between nineteen and has been named to pro bowl bowl in each of the past three seasons. He said the league single season record for sacks by defensive back last season with nine point five help with him going to the scheme with the seahawks Figure led the team as did his fourteen tackles for loss and his thirty persons which according to espn statin information research or fourteen more than any other db in the leaves. So what we're saying here is the numbers are there. He is standing out very proud very loud. No problems there adams new adver salary of seventeen point five million dollars over the extension easily tops. The mark and he becomes the nfl's seventeenth out of every seventeenth highest paid defender. Okay this guy's there he also becomes. The team's third highs paid player behind quarterback russell wilson who makes about thirty five million per season and linebacker bobby wagner who makes about eighteen million or seizing so right underneath. Bobby is adams his times now and he's locked into the twenty twenty five. Alright so i know. The seahawks and adams are super excited. Now let's turn gears man and talk about something. That's a little flip. The opposite tim tvos attempt to return to the. Nfl is tied in after years of playing quarterback is over the jacksonville. Jaguars released two thousand seven. Heisman trophy winner this week as part of the first round of roster cuts so they didn't even try to play with a little bit didn't drag it on. They just decided to let it happen. Tibo posted a message on twitter shortly after he was released in which he thanked the jaguars for giving him a chance. He said thankful thankful for the highs in even the lows the opportunities and the setbacks. I've never wanted to make decisions out of fear or failure in. I'm grateful for the chance to have pursued a dream. In quote he said you to the jaguars organization. Everyone who has supported me in this journey. And i know that. God works off things together for good romans. Eight two eight Tibo signed a one year contract with the jaguars on mates we as a tight end if you call. He didn't look out a place throughout the spring in the first three days of training camp but his lack of experience blocking was obvious. When the pass got on you know everybody wants a proponent. I'm sure Urban meyer said he knew That was an uphill battle for tim. Players loved him. Locker room loved him. But it was the right thing Tibo played sixteen snaps in was targeted once in jaguars twenty three thirteen loss cleveland. This past week in preseason. He was the only tied in that did not play special teams. Snap and meyer said. That was a big reason was as well you know. He couldn't use them on all fronts. I guess in addition tibo and the jags also waved a born jack. Sorry additional tibo. The jags also weighed cornerback. Dj daniel in Injured receiver josh Immortal baki Receiver tim ross. In defensive tackle day arouse all of them were released from the squad so tvos. He's gone now. I wonder what's next. Maybe he's going back to tv. Who knows but we will see what happens next there Got a got a few different green bay news. I guess we'll start with the packers. Bring him back jake dole gala for you know as quarterback. Deb i guess because with the jordan low shoulder still is know injury air rogers not expected to play in the preseason degree. Packers are bringing back. jagd alaga The signing was not announced by the team but was made publicly by his agency They're the ones that led to be known. The team will have to make room on the roster before it can make it official because they have to be you know olympic avon players which they are so those change around but i guess there's just a dude has been set with agency Again this is somebody down. Wanna be really playing just But before you know the cuts to eighty five. The packers also swapped cornerbacks With the new york giants they traded who thousand eighteen second round. Pick josh jackson for twenty eighteen third round pick. Is it yatom San fran san francisco. Forty niners they also made it pretty interesting cut. They decided to cut josh rosen. This week in the former number tain overall pick back to an uncertain football future with jimmy g. in trae lance omitted. Niners day also have veteran. nate Southfield outplayed rosen in the battle for a possible. Thurs by i guess. They just believe. They didn't need that. Many quarterbacks lined up got two really go on zora. These one proven good. One one needs to be proven good. One in Nate beating out rosen. Look there's no point in spending all that money on rosen. japan The arizona cardinals. Originally selected rosen with a ten page twenty eighteen draft. Ucla if you recall. He was traded to the miami dolphins the following year in Because they got to be Because they got a qatar. Sorry they got keiler is why he left the cardinals even though they swear they were gonna ruin roseanne but i guess they knew better than he was trained to mind dolphins the following year and then landed at the book. Practice squad Last year wants to miami. Got to already have this patrick. The forty niners signed him to their active roster in december following injuries to alcohol and backup nick mullins last year. But now you just not good enough and they got Garoppolo back and It was able to draft land so they are set in modern. Nfc east of philadelphia eagles. Out somebody coming back from injury that is rookie receiver devante smith iii participating teams drills this week for the first time After going after they have to play a new england a first since you know. He sprained his mc l. at the beginning of august he said i'm excited i feel good Just taking it day by day step by step just continuing to get better and get more comfortable with it Coach said he would not commit to smith's playing This week but Soon he's believes that he'll be back He just returning to eleven eleven drills and saying he's healthy so it's always good news and just the reporting that you know. Eagles fans out there no We'll it's coming on up and number making our move to the top Getting back. I heard that hurts. His looking good in practice. So that's good that he is too. Now let's talk about houst- in a little bit. Mainly their big issue with watson. Are john watson didn't practice This past But texans coach. David cullen says. The quarterback isn't injured. He said sean is here again. Every day he's here he comes in and he works he does. He does what we ask him to do. He's here every day and he's doing fine. Okay so watson. Who reported to camp on july twenty fifth after replacing the trade on january practice for the first five days of training camp was not on the field for the next five days in return for all four days and three weeks of practice. That's been going. That's what it looked like. He didn't park this beginning of this week. Okay i mean yeah. There's like one on in the background. But it's all been watson had watson national nuts training camp he'd been fined fifty thousand for each day. And i'm sure he didn't want that to happen now. Also working on his side is the allegations of sexual assault inappropriate behavior. are being investigated now by the fbi. According to watson's lawyer rusty a heart hardened also said that watson spoke to fbi allegations of also spoke to the fbi about the allegations regarding one of the twenty three lawsuits filed against him In april the fbi came to us and told us they were investigating A matter as to whether one of mr tony busby's clients had committed extortion in the way they were demanding money from the shy or what they would do if they didn't pay pay it. Okay so baiting. And he has some messages from one of those Alleged victims. That pretty much had her apologizing on her in about her actions. So now if beyond trying to make sure that you know this isn't going to be type of extortion case. And they're trying to. I guess blackmail on but look into it. We'll find out more information soon. I'm sure If the is going to be quite about so they have all the facts but when they do. I know we'll hear about it. Our chase klay pittsburgh steelers avoid a worst case scenario after the second wide receiver went down hard in the final minutes of practice earlier this week. Clay suffered a minor ankle spring after landing awkwardly on it He said it should be fine after going to grab a deep pass on the sideline klay pool had to be helped off the field by quarterback being rothenberger anti-death eric e. bron though he was able to put some way on the injured ankle as he walked off Klay poll twenty three years. Old figured to be one of the steelers top tier receivers along with juju smith schuster in deontay johnson after a breakout rookie campaign in which he recorded not touchdowns in eight hundred. Seventy three yards on sixty two receptions. He is a very key part of what they're gonna be doing on offense so hopefully ankle hills up quick. He'll be back for the start of season more than likely though dallas cowboys What's going on over there. At likelihood of dallas cowboys quarterback back purse guys seeing a live action in a game in the preseason before the september nine opener against tampa bay is growing dimmer in dimmer mccartney said There's a good chance he probably won't play. Yes that's fair I know dachshund. Okay now. i'm not completely done. But i've started the hard knocks Episode wished for those. That don't know hard. Next comes on Hbo and it's following the cowboys this year. So you know taking us through. The little highlight reel of what's going on in camp And let me tell you. It seems like a good time that way Deck is very motivated. He does not want to get off the field he doesn't want even any injuries Arm strain in everything. That's why they're trying not to bother it as you can tell if you watch the show Training is not too concerned about it but the About enough to where they feel like they didn't want him throwing okay. They didn't want him throwing from the at first. Then it's like not too much Dashes where it stands. But i mean to just a good seat of good energy coming from. Rookie carson's zeke inex- crazy. Because they had a little part where they showed. The different looks zeke. Since he came in the league. And i'm like dang i forgot. He went through that. many looks. zeke is really changed a lot but now has a new. Look all happy-go-lucky him in his best friend. They're having a good time but god seat him parks. Give us a look inside. What's going on at the camp for the dallas cowboys. But yeah that's the news today on dacca's daddy's probably not gonna play a good chance that he's not gonna play a preseason which i'm not so much a fan of because he's been gone for eleven months hasn't had been on the game eleven months i don't think his first game back should be against tampa. Bay database defense does not play art Aaron rodgers in the beautiful mystery tour will continue this season whether or not. It's his last season or not with the packers after the off season in which he stayed away while he tried to get the packers to pay attention. Give them some time resulting in a restructure contract. That makes it much easier for the quarterback to play somewhere else next year. Rogers is trying to make one thing clear. He says i do not i will. He says. I don't. I don't want a fair world tour. I don't know what's going to happen after this season. But i'm going to enjoy it with the right perspective for sure and not look at it as i'm getting through this. I'm going to enjoy the hell out of it. All right. this is don't count Don't have every packer. Fan trying to get home game because like this rogers last year. Now i mean. Obviously he's also saying not saying that it's not his last year just saying that he hopes prefers that it won't be his last year Laforce said love through a little This week Rogers is not expected to play the preseason with love said to get the majority of the snaps which he has a love did not Being a recovering from his injuries This hasn't been pricing this week. So i mean somebody else's definitely going to step up in this preseason which are he mentioned. Oh but that is where than i mean. That's just news because it's aaron rodgers. Okay now something fun real quick. I did wanna highlight and i don't know for many of the people that knew this or not but i want to highlight this article on the top teen. Nfl players that also were pro wrestlers. Okay so trying to see who are some people that you guys remember Someone note Pacman jones remember pacman jones. playful tennessee. Titans he was a cornerback Sides oh five zero six in dallas on eight cincinnati bengals twenty ten through twenty seventeen Then denver in twenty eighteen The appeared in one hundred and forty six games with one hundred and four stars. Seventeen sections in five returns for touchdowns. Okay this guy is amazing. All right He had about a dozen catches. I mean matches. Tnn actually was a world tag team champion with our truth. Pacman had skill set. Not many guys could match so Is very cool to see that. He was pretty much a two sport athlete. Somebody else to know monty brown. He played linebacker for the bills. Ninety three to ninety five then the patriots in ninety six he played four. Three games with thirteen starts He was the alpha man big star in tna wrestling and tom they're Mood the moose moose. Real name quinn. A janata played offensive guard and he played in six to own. Our the falcons to the patriots between ten and twenty eleven. The colts Rams in twenty twelve played a sixty two games He actually wrestled in or ontario Got that recognition. There bryan hillman was a linebacker fell. He was flying. Brian wrestling Steve mango Michael defensive tackle and eighties eighty to ninety s. He had one hundred. Seventy one starts ninety five sacks Went by the mango play Wrestled wcw Air defensive tackle in the sixties four. The chargers play for oilers. The cheese on played one hundred twelve gains with seventy six starts a registered thirty three and five career sacks. I mean thirty three point five sorry career sacks he was the big cat when it came down to whitman six nine two hundred ninety pounds. You know all these four players queue. So it's very easy to transition over Ron simmons Legs lugar go taking away back to wa who mcdaniels some more recognizable ones Roman reigns arcade road named joe But he played for the elks who has a tackle in. Oh eight played in five games with three of them being stars before he became so well known on a wwe stage okay. He was dead guy and then the biggest one. I think for sure That most people definitely could not ignore was bill goldberg. He was a nose. tackle for. Atlanta falcons ninety two to ninety four played in fourteen games with one start at that and to put the icing on the cake. Who didn't know goldberg. A big guy airman really making the happen as he was doing damage in the wcw He had undefeated streak on the stage on the worldwide gail will that he can't be duplicated and it's still playing Paying dividends in today. He wrestled bill bill russell. milwaukee with green bay packers players surrounding the rain took a spear and a jackhammer and of course one-two-three and you'll see bill in summer slammed this weekend in the co main event. Still getting it done man. So those people i just wanted to say that you know talking about football but we can also talk about some other things to suffer a quick break. We'll be right back.

Made me and we are back. Thank you for your patience. All right so now we want to get into recap what went down last week in the first week of preseason ball. So what did we see. We see backups. We see rookies. We see people that are coming back from Taking last year off due to cove lot of new things new movements are really saying what some people are capable of out there. Okay so Let's do some recaps. And i'm pretty much doing order of the games on how they occurred Which day tom if possible. So kicking off will be washington versus of new england patriots who played last thursday They play last thursday at New england So in foxborough and There was a little bit of stand over there so rookie. Running back Romande stevenson had two touchdown runs including a ninety one yard. Score would just over a minute to play to help. The new england patriots beat washington twenty two to thirteen in this game Like i said that that big run at the end was pretty much. Help this number being twenty to get up that high because the game was closed. Going into the fourth patriots. Only up nine two seven Didn't go on escort thirteen points whereas watched football team only scored six quin at norden had had three fills for the patriots Wanted each quarter leading up to the fourth including v. Yarder job joon a williams had The played a night at the play tonight for the patriots. Defense picking off stephen Early in the fourth quarter to set up a stevenson's first touchdown stevenson finished with ten carries for one hundred twenty seven yards Okay so bill. Belichick said fundamentally. I thought we made some progress But we've still got a long way to go Patriots led fifteen seven in the fourth quarter before months took washington on a fifteen play. Ninety two yard drive to He kept with a four yard touchdown. Pass to lamar miller with one minute. Twenty five seconds left to go. What else do we see. You will appear to complete a two point. Conversion pass to antonio gandhi Golden but both review overturned abboud review overturned the call stevenson. Then got free down sideline and third played annoyingly. Insure series to put away the game. They pretty much shut it down for those guys at that moment. What do we see from the new england patriots. Will all eyes were on quarterback position For the new england. Patriots cam newton answering training camp looking to rebound back from a disappointing twenty twenty campaign That almost cement. They brought him back inside Patriots used their first round. Pick though to pick up jones so everybody wants to see what mak mak man was looking like a bill. Belichick belichick has. Newton is the starter but Cam newton did also say this week. That bill hasn't officially. I guess said that stone so i mean i love jones to get in there and make some shake other rookie completed thirteen of nineteen passes for eighty seven yards in five series spreading the ball around with confidence after he took over for cam newton in the first quarter newton. Who shared a field with Ron rivera for the first time since they were together back carolina from twenty eleven. Twenty nineteen played the opening series series. Finished four seven. Forty nine yards all right That's kind of how that was looking. I know you wanna hear about some of that. Washington defense okay Apparently start off a little shaky included. One pass batted down away by chase young after he blue blue paths left tackle as a win and hit newton from behind as the as he released the ball which also possibly came was taken out of the game after dustin hopkins missed a forty or field goad newton guide new england moving giving much more time to operate in the pocket he linked up with jacob meyers on living yard or founded johnny smith on crossing route for sixty yards and james white for seventeen yards along the sideline. So what does that tell us. He can get it done. The drives That will come in about tony sony. Michelle had two short runs. Jones lofted the ball into the endzone perfectly over the shoulder of wilkerson. so he's putting Bosley needs to be which is important but wilkerson could it hall. In what would have been a thirty four yard touchdown he dropped. The drive ended with northerns fifty yard field goal next up. Washington host. The bengals on august twentieth in the patriots visit eagles on august nineteenth at that time would probably came back on the field Seasom us more. Those people getting rotated on both sides of the ball for sure though. The steelers steelers played a thursday as well. They play the eagles in philly. They defeated the eagles. Twenty four to sixteen. So there's a bit of a battle especially after the third philadelphia really cost them win scoring fourteen getting them up to twenty one I'm sorry pittsburgh pittsburgh fourteen so they really start off kinda slow going into halftime down. Sixteen seven Do they went on their running third in. That was the end of that for sure because the eagles did not have an answer And i mean this is really a rally behind. has wayne. Haskins got advice quarterback coach to play like a jazz player. Smooth jazz is real smooth the blues. You bob your head snap yo. Fingers were haskins said has hit hit all the right notes. in his push from the back up quarterback spot through for 'cause because he threw four one hundred sixty one yards and the touchdown the Pittsburgh steelers to a twenty four to sixteen win been roth. Burgers sat out obviously of this game. Mason rudolph has been the team's backup for the past three seasons and just may keep that job. Haskins though is giving rudolph a run for his money has through. Twenty two yard touchdown pass to anthony. Johnson pittsburgh also got a one yard scoring run by anthony macfarlane steelers coach. Mike tomlin that has was very much in command on his play We need to see more. Though is what was mentioned that includes ben rothlisberger. Tomlin say rothlisberger will play against detroit in third. Preseason game So he will be out there. Haskins washington's of twenty nine thousand first round pick said quarterback coach. Mike sullivan gave him that advice while playing jazz and he kinda kept that woodhams learning. He's still learning a lot. Still figuring out the guys and how they move around there altogether. What else do we still got a boost during the game when they agreed to acquire linebacker. Joe sh sh robert from the jacksonville jaguars according to a person familiar with the teams In the deal the person's spoke to the press on condition of basically being quiet. Because neither side have formally finalized a deal. But they're you know he's there. The steelers needed depth inside linebacker. Following the surprise. Retirement of veteran. Vince williams just before training camp williams departure left pittsburgh with devon bush at roberts spin lynn. Ask starting inside line backers in little experience behind them both are now. We're talking eagle. So got a hurts. He had a young quarterback that is leading philadelphia. Played two series and was a modest three of seven for fifty four yards. He hit tied in. Zach ertz over the middle for thirty four yards and had a receivers dropped passes on his next. Two attempts hurts a second round. Pick last year was one third Was one of three with an injury dependent team that Finished four eleven wine. He completed fifty two percent of his passes for one thousand. Sixty one yards and six touchdowns with for intercessions. He also ran for three hundred fifty four yards and three touchdowns. Joe flacco who through twenty five touchdown passes against the steelers in his eleven seasons with the baltimore ravens. He quinn's quiz watson. Four seventy nine yard touchdown and a ten old lead of flacco signed to play behind hurts was tear. Seventeen for one hundred seventy six. I mean one hundred. Seventy eight yards and a touchdown. Jack elliott kicked to forty seven yard field goals in a fifty yard for the eagles. Really tried to keep them in game. But it just didn't work out and then Nick mullins for love. Your third quarterback had a pass picked off by justin lane in the third quarter jalen samuel scored for one yard to give the steelers at twenty one to sixteen lead in. They finish it off which is worn more field goal next up. His berg returned home Obvious when i in place detroit Eagles host the patriots next thursday. Well today guys. In order to see who's going to play there so tune into that game to night the bills buffalo bills versus the detroit. Lions a game of a single digit is what it came down to ladies and gentlemen it was pretty tight going to the half of buffalo. Probably about they had. It was thirteen to three there by ted. But then no one goes onto a score in the third quarter and then Buffalo scored another field goal. Put him about sixteen and then detroit lions to go for fifteen twelve point to get them to fifteen only news by one. So what did we see over. Some things who was out. there will guess for buffalo. we had David davis webb take majority of the passes. There he dig to james eleven for sixteen ninety yards one touchdown known sessions Jake frahm he got in there. Got eight of thirteen sixty five yards and no touchdowns over deceptions at mitchell trubisky. He got two balls in here. Only one was caught for ten yards Notes as downs or anything like that or exceptions what he comes to the russian side of it Tinkers went to matt of britta We only got twenty seven yards Devon single terry got a but had a good breakout one for fifteen yards. Greet him a total. Forty two yards But he was it. You know the personalities leading the most As far as long yards because the detroit lions had to derrick meals who had a twenty yard run in craig reynolds who had a twenty four yard run. The party was with their Quarterbacks you know jared goff did get out there and get some. those in you. Went from seven. Went seven completions out of nine passes fifty six yards. Nothing in the end zone for you. Need these quarterbacks But we did have a touchdown ran in by reynolds. In which as i mentioned everything else was a field goal But let's talk about the receivers receptions that were created happened. Marquis stevenson at three receptions. Fifty yards He was targeted out. Three times caught the ball. Three times is very important at three for three on that one for sure Look at detroit. tom kennedy. Tom kennedy had a four receptions for forty six yards no touchdowns on only receiver get a touchdown in game was devon a single table. He only had one pass so but you know he plays runningback. Obviously ball security well Anthony williams from the ball. He didn't lose it though for my guy. Former dan jacob hollister received the fumble that he was able to Give vic bolden so ball. Team had one fumble fumble recovery defensive side of the ball who is really on and poppin well told attack was waiting for the buffalo bills with eight. Total tackles andrew smith and then kevin strong with six for the detroit lions There was sacked by bruce. Hector in another sack by julian a kwara for detroit and then the to Sex three six. Are that happened For buffalo bills were by mike bell Demar hamlin and Derrick johnson okay. So all of those guys make an impact they need to in order hooked their team's win we love to see it tightens versus fout gins played on friday and the titans once when he three three. Yeah the Of atlanta falcons on scored one field goal in third Titans scored fill both i in third. They also got one in a second. But they also got touchdown in a second. They got themselves took down to fourth which gives them twenty three points Total atlanta following following his. I look at his offense in a game situation. The big news for atlanta's first year coach. Arthur smith was the small was the dismissal result. That didn't count of by his people. Logan woodside in matt barkley each touchdown passes to open. Tennessee's backup quarterback competition in a tent in titans. Dominated the falcons twenty three three as i mentioned times hailed atlanta one hundred in thirty nine yards in six i in the debut for smith tennessee's former offensive coordinator. Aj mccarron and felipe bay. Franks the contender. To be the falcons. Back to star quarterback of matt ryan combine to come pleats only seven passes for fifty two yards tough. What's had started in threw a thirteen yard scoring pass to cameron bolton in the second quarter in completed ten of passes for eighty four yards. Okay l. barclay ed. Third down completions Of fourteen of thirteen yards. Four of fourteen and fifteen yards to mason kinsley on a field goal. Drive early in the second half Barclays twelve yard touchdown. Pass to tight in miller forceful in the fourth quarter completed scoring where things ended for the most part barkley completed five of eight passes for fifty four yards. Neither quarterbacks threw interception woodside was sacked three times though each team held out its key playmakers so atlanta rookie tied in So sorry Tidy and cal- pits the number four overall selection. Nfl draft was in uniform but did not play pointless. Smith said the decision to hold a out pits wasn't too difficult and Was assigned the rookie. Had been immersive insurance gap mccarron of had a pass intercepted by titans linebacker david long early in the second period a fifty six yard punt return by tennessee's chester rogers to atlanta's fourteen set setup the first two The first of two. I have field goals by tucker mcken. Detailed starting quarterback ryan tannehill running back dare carry wide receiver julio jones. Aj brown obviously non travel with the team in first place. Eliminating jones chance to return to nfl home of his first ten seasons before the trade occurred which makes sense Ryan wide receiver Kevin really in running back. Maya davis were among kia atlanta players. That did not player come Mccarron completed five or twelve passes for only thirty six yards and an interception okay Next up tennessee will play another round game against nfc south opponent when it visits tampa bay on august twenty first atlanta will to join practice with Dolphins at their facility next week before playing miami on august. Twenty first as well okay. That's that game. And then next game i want to discuss also occurred on friday. Was the cowboys versus the cardinals. Now i know you're like ooh that's a tough game watch took game 'cause a lot going on especially on defense in offenses well. Cardinals came out on top nineteen to sixteen. It was kinda slow game dead. Single digits throughout the quarters But prentiss forty seven yard field goal. Lists cardinals over for the win Jayme down to that Rookie comfortable. As arizona's middle linebacker. Matt prater booted game tied of booted. Game tying and game winning field goals and the cardinals rallied for nineteen sixteen victory over the dallas cowboys as a preseason game That occurred on friday collins. Who was the number sixteen. Pick in april's draft pool down tony pilot for two yard loss on a game opening drive to spark in encouraging night from arizona's defense salaam. Becker is expected to pair the second expected to pair with second year. Linebacker isiah simmons to anchor the middle of the defense. This season Those to be sitting next to each other going head to head with your running backs in lyman predator made a forty seven yard field goal as time expired to win the game That followed a forty eight yard yarder that he made with one fifty one remaining in the fourth to tie at sixteen all been de nucci. Another has missed him right. Been nucci threw a one yard touchdown pass to brenton smith midway through the fourth. Quarter to give the cowboys. A sixteen and thirteen lead. Nucci played Played in three games for the cowboys. Last season When you guys were really struggling for a quarterback it was the first preseason game the cardinals in second for cowboys. Who lost to the steelers during the hall of fame game. Most of the stars from both teams including cardinals quarterback calamari cowboy's quarterback dak prescott did not play for obvious. Reasons press got a has been bothered by shoulder and don't want to make that worse in. Obgyn ran for a six yard touchdown to give the cardinals. Eighteen three Late in the second.

Bridgewater stood out from the other as both denver. Quarterbacks candidates face minnesota's backups. There sure was no reason to complain about any lack of clarity though. The whole team looked sharp. In the broncos exhibition lock pass for one hundred fifty one yards and two touchdowns in three positions in chris. First audition to open a for the open competition. Bridgewater follow suit. And the broncos beat the minnesota vikings thirty three six Broncos first round draft pick pass routines scored on a thirty yard interception return after a misdirected thorough by vikings.

George patton in an off season trade with carolina was seven for nine seventy four yards. Fangio has already promised to flip the order for the next game but neither of them seem to be sweating. The situation there both stepping up to play in order to compete and a very fun way. The vikings rested more than thirty players after two full days of practice against the broncos at the teams Suburban headquarters this week. The only projected star. Who played was defensive in stephen worthy leaving at leaving a lot to be desired for the completion level for lock and bridgewater. The broncos used most of their first team offense with running back. Melvin gordon why receive according satan and left guard Dalton reisner the most notable absences but again obvious reasons who whilst would you want that kind of problem. You don't want those people get injured so you're not gonna put them in a situation. The broncos us most of their Mean i'm sorry. Cetane who was selected ninth overall out of alabama head of quarterbacks justin feels Jones sure made his mark when he mosul in front of in out route by a fellow. Rookie amir smith. More set browning went five of ten for thirty one yards. vikings right guard dayton dozer. Who fell behind. Ali udo in the Competition for a starting spot was whistled for holding on former teammate Stephan in the end zone for a safety Dozer had a false start penalty later. That was from only from the vikings who heard in less than stellar effort Unfortunately poor performance You know i gotta give you the full stats on my guy kellyn so kill them on with six or sixteen unfortunately for fifty three yards no touchdowns but no interceptions all right. Let's keep that in the bag. Okay he just needs to warm up. He did better pretty much. Every other guy. Data started a game aka. Jake browning in a brit- brit- a ripen. So he just needs a little bit more experienced out there. Get some things done So that he can be more impressive for sure was next. Well broncos play seattle on saturday and vikings host indianapolis on saturday so those two games you guys might want to check out and see what is going to get done there as a couple of things that can be pointed out based off of your inquiries from what we're talking about now who sewn up where who didn't play. Who did play then. You'll have a better idea of what you wanna see this weekend. The browns in the jaguars. This one's going to be a little more interesting. Unfortunately jaguars didn't do much of anything. Until the very int- trevor lawrence's professional debut opened with a sack and a fumble harley ideal but not overly concerned. I guess but i mean hey welcome to the nfl. The number one overall pick in the nfl draft. Were you know he. He rebounded delivered a couple of impressive throws in somewhat dope. I pre game. You know twenty three thirteen lost though to the cleveland. Browns lawrence started over gardner mid shoot. I mean i guess if you call starting we are talking about preseason here Usually the real stars don't start Belonged was you know. He's he's a rookie so he needed to But he started over gardner minhsiu ena completed. Six of nine passes for seventy one yards into series. The most important part of jacksonville. The former clemson star left. Tiaa bank field healthy. that's great. He did not get injured even though he was a couple of times. There had to be somewhere you have to lawrence with sack on the teams. I play though just because of how the guys went down lawrence was taken down again on the second drive but responded with his best. Throw a thirty five yard Marvin jones on third doubts. That one however came after lawrence had a ball longer than quarterbacks. Normally get with my ear. Laminate kick him out. Say having just one hundred twenty yards of offense at halftime No one seemed to be concerned about the browns on the other hand. They you know held out. Most of their starters including baker mayfield nick. Chub jarvis landry odell beckham the award miles gary david clowney da da da a meyer also making his debut countered by playing every starter except receiver. Dj clark because he has a finger injury in live guard andrew nor will who has elbow injury so what should have been advantage for jacksonville. Looked more like a mismatch. It looks kinda bad that you know. They went in there with their starters and other team. Didn't they got Like that so would should have been event. I mean they. Lead brown's led thirteen to zero at halftime and could have been a bigger has to fancy called for a cheap shot. Bill go from the six yard line instead. Third third-string quarterback cow through incomplete on fourth in goal Cow the letter. that is he completed. Nineteen of twenty seven passes for two hundred twelve yards and two touchdowns in relief of the second team quarterback case keenum So i guess as a bliss that you guys got the kind of death dep brown's Mentioned was four eight. Forty seven yards with an interception so pre stinky Lineup which is why they get themselves quarterback in the first place all right up next to browns hosted your giants this weekend on the twenty second. Jaguars play the new orleans. Saints on the twenty-third a rare monday. Night game jacksonville. They don't usually have those. But that's what this preseason we can look like instead of Last week rose thursday through sunday. This week is going to be thursday through monday. Trying to get us in the in the field man in his back in motion in is just. I'm just ready to go. I'm really gonna put watching football on my schedule. Like would games are playing. Would i'll be watching instead of doing whatever i'm supposed to be doing because that's just it's just how exciting honestly okay. Let's talk about the safe. I just mentioned them world states. Play the baltimore ravens Tyler huntley ran for seven yard touchdown with six minutes thirty five seconds remaining and the baltimore. Ravens extended their preseason winning streak to eighteen games with seventeen with a seventeen fourteen. Victory over the new orleans. Saints the ravens habit lost in the preseason since twenty fifteen. If you didn't know they struggled to move the ball. Saturday with quarterback with more jackson held out but new orleans couldn't overcome it's six turnovers huntley. Who took over for trace mcsorley at quarterback in the second half capped eight twelve play seventy nine yard drive with the ravens only touchdown of the game yesterday. Only scored a touchdown a in the fourth. Quarter jameis winston through for ninety six yards Do for ninety six yards and a touchdown in this game but he and tastes of. He'll each do it. Interceptions in some Point growing pains for the saints in the post arab brees is going to include a loss of three fumbles as well. Too many turnovers Clearly the reason that these guys lost for sure. You coach sean. Payton says you six turnovers ten penalties. You're going to struggle. We were fortunate to even be that close. Honestly bad job as coaches players It was ugly to watch. Gino stone had two interceptions for the ravens. He said it was the first time he eh. that had happened since school. brite will. Obviously i walk to the league. Breeze retirement left the new orleans saints quarterback situation in a state of uncertainty. He'll started in this game and played. The first three series didn't win. Winston played the rest of the first half. He'll went eight of twelve for eighty one yards in winston wet seven twelve for ninety six yards as i said really try and get those two field out In book came on a the second half in with the saints at the baltimore. Thirty five his deep pass was intercepted by sean. Wait at the nine with one minute in forty two seconds remaining Tony jones scored on an eighteen yard. Run in the second quarter to give the saints. A seven three lead at that point though new orleans was out gaining baltimore one hundred fifty seven two four and the ravens didn't have a first down externally finally guided baltimore to a decent drive after that but the ravens didn't reach the end zone until much later jackson had only been a practicing for a week after missing the start of training camp and after testing positive for cover nineteen he's been gone pursue he was You know filling that not happy about that solely played the first half in huntly came on the second. The ravens did manage to Get three field goals in the first half which had them Lean israeli second quarter altogether as what i came in and wins and a half fourteen a nine a new orleans up but then was able to finish things off in the fourth going for eight. Holly was twelve of six twelve sixteen for seventy seven yards and also have forty two yards on six carries. He's a sorely was eleven of eighteen. Eighty six yards and his inception he got Was a little fortunate. Winston threw an eight yard touchdown. Pass out little jordan humphrey in the second quarter to put The saints up fourteen to six but missed opportunities ultimately caught up to them New orleans loss. Their two of their fumbles inside the baltimore's twenty Star running back album Play for the saints in the ravens did not use newly newly-acquired receiver. Sammy watkins Which was smart because academic injury. That came out of nowhere. You just. you didn't have to do it all right up next for the saints. They host jacksonville this weekend. As i mentioned in the ravens visit the carolina panthers on saturday so tune in tap. In whatever in you usually do do get to it. Okay the jets versus the giants Yeah this ballgame game right and that's fun to watch when into the half jets up to three to zero the giants than had a little bit of movement after that jets finally win it Twelve to seven three points to drives in one solid debut for wilson. The number two overall pick gossip timeout. There six of nine for sixty three yards late in new york just to lead in new york suggest to a field goal against the giants backups. On a defense and In a twelve to seven.

Packers quarterback jordan loves pro debut ended earlier than expected Quarterback matt quarterback coach Floor said love Kind of got dinged up a while getting sacked by jonathan greener a late in the first half of the packers. Twenty six or seven loss on saturday greener came from love's Blindside and stripped the ball from him to force a fumble but apparently also kinda got his arm and a jam made things a little uncomfortable. Low-floor said he had hoped loved would play three quarters. Dad wasn't the case. The two thousand twenty first round pick from utah state instead sat out the entire second half just to be safe. Love went twelve of seventeen. For one hundred twenty yards with a touchdown pass in his first game appearance since getting taken twenty six overall in the twenty twenty draft And of course that came in the second quarter the only time that the patriots the patriots. Jesus christ the green bay packers did score. He went six of six for eighty nine yards on a first quarter drive that ended Keelan he'll turning a short completion. Into twenty twenty yard touchdown. green. Bay's offense wasn't an effective But sheen wanted it to be virtually That's just how it was. Although the circumstances surrounding green bay's air rogers and houston's desha watson had been tool to infos biggest off season stories. Neither play saturday. Obviously i don't know why anybody who expects us thing but you know and the reason i keep saying these things as people keep asking the questions. People keep trying to figure out why not. Why do you not perks komo now. Use your since. But it's okay because tyrod taylor. The texans likely started quarterback If watson is available to gay clear to whatever happens happens He went four for four four forty yards for four. You'd go to wendy's for y'all boys in his one loan series taylor laid fifty three yard drive that return in one of Fairburn's four field goals that he completed davis mills to texans rookie third round pick from stanford when eleven twenty two four hundred twelve yards in an interception while leading to scoring drives watson who had an nfl leading four thousand eight hundred in twenty yards.

The force said that this week. Rogers probably wouldn't play at all. This preseason enabling love in a kurt binkert to get a much work. Get get in as much work as possible. Roger skip the packers organized team activities and mandatory minicamp as part of standoff that he had with the teams officials in order to give some respect around here. Put some respect on a goats name but the three-time. Mvp reported to training camp on time just to be fair Of course people are missing out on. The packers is no randall. Cobb his dues night into our guest. Not going to be. But randall. Cobb play for green bay from twenty eleven to twenty eighteen. The packers reacquired him at the start of training camp At rogers request. So welcome back. cobb all right As far as you know odds in a houston scotty philipson undrafted free agent from his sippy rushed for sixty six yards on thirteen carries houston dairies.

Green bay hosted newark jets on saturday after holding a joint practices with them This week Both yesterday and today. Wednesday thursday okay. That's what those teams looked like in that game. So what would it look like if houston really was the team. That's gonna be better than green bay packers. I know it was audrey. Okay next up. Kansas city in the san francisco forty niners with one deep strike. Trae lance showed. Why the san francisco. Forty niners invested so heavily to draft him This offseason with a few moments in his preseason debut lance showed why the niners aren't rushing to make him their starter lance through an eighty yard touchdown pass to lead a to live loud cheers from san francisco fans and also showed some a rookie traits in the preseason debut during the forty niners nineteen sixteen losses at a kansas city chiefs unfortunately The niners traded three first round pigs to draft land third overall in april to their quarterback of the future campaign but they also still have incumbent. Jimmy g. so how soon will the future calm or were not to shore while we're watching preseason ball to see what he can really. Do you remember how russell wilson were trying to see who was gonna do Same thing last had up and down. I performance with a few off target throws three-star passes that were drive by the receivers and four secs behind a spotty offensive line. It was looking a little shaky for the forty nine. He no they gotta be careful air by getting hit injuries. A prone over there for some reason could be whether i don't know but he also delivered perfectly plays deep pass. That was pretty pretty Chad hint threw a touchdown. Pass to bryan pringle. After a short cameo by patrick mahomes to begin the game and rookie shane Bush l. a. scored a one yard keeper with one minute fourteen to play To win it for kansas city chiefs Let's talk about some more people. What else happened on the first play of his of his second position Lands faked a handoff. Erodes the left on a stable. Play in shanahan's offense with the brand brandon open in front of him. Land stopped on the hash. Mark in through astrid nearly forty yards downfield to the right side of the field for a touchdown. Pass to trait sherefield. Okay vision arm. We like to see we love to see. This was the only touchdown for san francisco in atlanta's eight drives. He also led the niners to one field goal and got them out of the shadow of their Post in a thirty four yard. Pass the charlie war From the end zone jimmy g. went three for three for twenty six ers on his one drive that ended in punt lance. Finish five fourteen. Four hundred twenty eight yards and one touchdown in didn't run. The ball wants despite excelling at the college level as being a dual threat quarterback that could have been by design. The niners held out twenty two players including near nearly their entire starting defense along with haydn. George kindle running back Rain most fullback And offensive lineman trent williams in alex. Mack keep your guys healthy. Don't risk your but keep them though. That's the cage. Gotta keep more next well. The cheese visit arizona. On friday tomorrow and in the forty niners head to los angeles for two joint practices against the chargers before exhibition on sunday. Seahawks in a raiders. The seahawks Visited the raiders. 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.

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. Dry finding jason moore junior for an eighteen yard gain before broadwool scoring run. Hodges started a quarterback started at quarterback for the rams who didn't play play new franchise quarterback matthew stafford or his backup in a john. Wolford both sat out but had just went. Eleven of nineteen eighty five yards. But he didn't make as many big places perkins who win. Seven ten in also rushed twenty three yard. You know that do a quarterback stuff is way more exciting. Get with the program Of course designed jackson did not fair. Donald not precipitate. Jalen ramsey did not participate just inherited and participate even allie. Joey bosa duh duh duh. Those guys aren't going to be until maybe at least the next game objects saying you may see him in if you do. It won't be for long all right rookie showcase the chargers did play their draft. Picks including first round pick left. Tackle rashawn slater in second round. Asante samuel julia at quarterback It was said. I know that we're not the home team. But i feel like being here in the stadium and being around these guys for the first time is a game setting as amazing In the game setting basins where slater said the rams who didn't have a first round pick for the fifth consecutive year fifth year david hammer because he douala training. You know what i'm saying. Also played there Draft choices their highest peak second round receiver to out of while Flashes speed receiver and kick returner awhile. Linebacker ernest jones was the defensive signal caller win on the field which means he's probably going to be a starter that might be a question up next form of the chargers they host the san francisco forty niners on sunday. And the rams host of raiders On saturday now. That was the final game of love saturday. Now we must talk about the final game of the first week on the game. The first week was on sunday and included the panthers versus the colts. Jason easson was officiant in place of the injured carson wentz an rookie.

This podcast is the full show from today's episode of undisputed from start to finish. They've got a busy slate. So skip shannon. let's get to it. Welcomed undisputed we are live from la. I'm johnny tapped. He was skip bayless and shannon sharpe. Good morning morning. Good morning we know. You played for the ravens. He won a super bowl with the ravens. You are no jon. Gruden fan that i know of and i can't wait to see how you come down on. What i thought just might have been the craziest monday night. Game i have ever witnessed. So you think this lunacy here we go tell. You saw a roller coaster ride. It really was guys. We asked you dagan because there's so much here. Let me break it down i. The raiders won a wild overtime game last night. Over the ravens. A thirty three to twenty seven oz. Vegas appeared to have those victory early in overtime. But review called back as potential touchdown and then derek carr through a pick in the end zone. Fortunately for the silver and black. Lamar jackson then lost his second. Fumble of the night car was able to finally deliver the game winning touchdown to a wide open zeta-jones so she had an what was the biggest reason. The raiders pulled this off because both the raven. Relax skip there in complete control of this game. They're fourteen nothing. They're driving the ball controlling the clock. I agree and i'm like okay. This is going ravens. The ravens are back to looking like the ravens although they have a lot of injuries on the other side of the put felt like it was about to get yup. Okay they doing big next thing you know. Boom the rape of have some issues. Offensively right tackle. Skip is going to be a problem for them. Moving forward because at the end of the game ended up costing them and a situation. They should've had picked up. Didn't pick it up like they're supposed to and they leave a d. lineman or running back who gave a half as effort in the block and nasa hits lamar in the back any of the pope. But lamar have to do a better job. Limited running back is just. All he's known injury overcoming your died you to start the new deciding guy up to put on the practice. But i thought i thought the turnovers really hurt skip. I don't get this. Lamar lamar scrambling skip. The guy hits them. He's in the air. He's he's he's horizontal and he tried to switch the ball from his right to his left. One eighty of put both hands on the ball. Why would you try to switch the ball from right to let it makes no sense. And that's the one that you used to be a lot of. Fumbles killing guys. Get up in the air. We just saw john lewis smith leave. The boot ball comes out and that's a lot of time because the ball is away from your body yet so now the is going to be easier for you to come out and i just thought this to mistakes. Lamar's just missing too many role that should be routine at this stage of his career. Some of the roles that he's missing should be routine and they're not and i need to know why Mark andrews led him down on second down. He hit for a first down now. We're in great situation. Come back the next play. Get hit in the back. The ball the turnover and wink martindale. I know you aggressive. I know this is the style that you'd like to coach. It's like their dna. I mean it's just it's always been the raven style. Go ahead but what you have is that when you have to all pro corners and you have another first round pick and jimmy smith who was older a corner. You can play this. But when. You're without marcus. Peters without jimmy smith imagine that your top three corners out so now you gotta bring the fourth and six quarters. I got on the field and you play zero coverage you played. This man covers kill. You can't allow a team to go thirty seven yard with two plays with no timeouts and kick a field goal. You care play zone. Why would you play that coverage and get the last place that was what we call. Bomb blitz zero coverage. I'm blowing it up. Bring everybody is. They got rubbed off guys. What are you thinking. Marlin other guy what you tell me what you're thinking they're in a stack formations bunch. You'd think everybody just go release straight on to feel the and to get to rub you and your guy and that's what happened in the next thing. You know models like you know what he got his eight jones got me touchdown ballgames over. The ravens may two-minute mistakes. There's no way they're supposed to lose this game with the way they're running the football the way they're controlling the clock and then all of a sudden they get careless. Incomplete here turn over there. In the game completely flipped and give derek carr derek carr give him credit skip. Jon gruden has never embraced him. Like i think head coach shoot embrace. His quarterback agreed but he played for nominal last night. He got unbelievable. Okay here. I go in the end. I will seize upon what you said about lamar. But i thought he played better. I thought he threw it better than you're giving them credit for. I thought all told lamar played well enough to win the football game except for two plays you cannot fumble especially on the road especially in a new stadium with people inside for the first time in raider nation out in four. Were going crazy loud in there. You cannot give them reason to take throat again. You can't grab your own throat and choke up the football twice. You just cannot do it. You have to do to your point. I don't know what he's trying to change hands and he made some good runs in the game and it's just wrong. You cannot fumbled the football that time. He let the raiders out of jail on that one and got him back in the game the one in the fourth quarter and then the one in overtime. It's just simple. He's just trying so hard to make a play and you're waiting. You're waiting you're waiting. You just have to protect the football wrap up. It's one thing. Brady's always done at the highest level. You just have to know. He got he got hit the other night where i on the football. But it's it's it's issue number one for a quarter is priority number one in the pocket the security you have to control the football you cannot let them knocked the ball out of your hands because it's such an instant turnaround turnover infielder. At worst case scenario. They're gonna get an opportunity short field okay so we get. That lamar was great. And lamar was bad in the end. The bad cost them. That's the bottom line to that game. You cannot fumble twice. You and i agree. The is the inconsistency best a problem for him it can be spectacular. And then he can be lamar. What the hell you think. Okay okay. well we're on that. Before i get to my real point here. Let's see i got a tape of great lamar. I'm talking about great. We could just see some of of the great throws that he made. This is the scramble that this is the unteachable uncoached drill. It is gift. It is indeed. Peter quality to hollywood brown touchdown and this throats. Is sammy watkins. I just don't know if you can do it better than that. That's beautiful that's what you run run. It is it's beyond michael vick. trust me. it's it's just. It's so spectacular and then quarterbacks that that i think there's only one i just think there's only one this is so breathtaking to meet the ability to throw it and run it at the highest of levels. This this run right here. This is just spectacular. He's untackled in. This was a clutch run. You got them down to save the game. Put them back ahead okay. So this is great. Lamar you can't fumble. Because in a nip tuck game a teeter totter game an emotional roller coaster game. If you've fumbled twice and they don't turn it over at all except for the weird okay. Which didn't kill them. It didn't kill them. it stopped. It stopped them from winning. Didn't lose the game. The mars two fumbles effectively. Lost the game right okay. now. I'm going to jump to the end of the game because this was very fast aimed to me on the played before the jones touchdown ends it. Jon gruden does something that a lot of great coaches. I've been around going back to bill. Walsh jimmy johnson. They all believed that overtime situation. If you're in field goal range just don't risk running play. Just kick it right. Jimmy lost game at houston on year the second year. Coaching the cowboys. And he fumbled on unapplied where you had them cold. They're playing at. I guess it was at oilers at that point. The dome stood on. He's kicking himself after the game because he wouldn't head handed emmett one more time to kind of position. The football fumbled it right and they lost the game because of that and there was still a young upcoming football. Run but you learn your lesson. Chis- kid's fair damn thing. They all say just go. If you're there just go ahead and by the way if you get it blocked on second down and you recover it. It's still your vote while i'm affirmed believing that also kicked the ball on second and third now. Okay so jon gruden lost control of this football game because his instinct was okay. I've seen enough. I'm going to kick it. Well if you're going to kick it you gotta get your team out there because the clock is winding down. And i thought he very nearly blew the game because he got a minus five on a delay of game. because he didn't his wheels didn't turn quickly enough to say go goal team row right and took like a minute of him going back and forth and his head should i should. I should i. Should i not. And by the time they ran out there. Plus i wouldn't have liked kalson's chances if you're just rushes just guilty now now it's just it's mad in out there. Yeah hey yeah and get minus five in all said groups like oh god now. I put five more yards on the kick. Maybe i should run a play right. Okay so he nearly blows the game and then to his credit. This is vintage. This is what i love about. Jon gruden this is why he calls his own place. This is why he's in the quarterbacks literally in his ear telling him every move to make. I think john even tells him during the play window fraud. He saw sells. I'll throw in. And what does he do. You describe the play after the game. Derek carr said that he coached me all week. If we see this we got audible to this. And they hadn't seen it all game but out of nowhere. Wink comes with the cover zero. There's nobody there are no safeties back because they are. They're guessing educated guessing. It's going to be run right and all the sudden you've got zeh jones in the game and he's not a starter so he just happened to be in on this. Play and moral humphries going to take him single coverage and here we go and and he he was told if you see this audible to that and so it's the bunch left and all of a sudden zales just takes off and moral humphries doesn't even run. It's like the left pinkie. No he's doing okay. It's like a leftfielder in baseball. When somebody just hits one four hundred feet over your head you don't even turn to watch. It's gotta run on third base in the guy you already know ca- like it's just over again for me. I would want marlin just to run just in case something. What if eats just start the ball yet but he knew he got cooked right. He got had that play and so two john gruden's credit. He had been teaching and coaching that coverage against that. Set if we get this you have to audible to say he is going to be able to run pass somebody yes and he did and he's telling him now we're going to all this but you're gonna have to get back but if you watch chris drake he come from the other side and just enough because this is what we call a bomb bliss. They're only going to blow it on zero covered. Yeah so this what we got here. Yeah he does. A great job of retrieving. The back comes across the formation not the not the easiest throat because he had to back off his he'd skill all note. If i just get it there. I got it. Look at this boom. If the bag doesn't get back the guy he might give an opportunity to get into our cars face. It was a great call. It's that's why that's why you the field. This is what he likes to do. That's what chucky is at his best again. Where he's at his worst is he. He sees the quarterback as an extension of himself right. And it's hard on the quarterback right and he won in oakland with rich gannon because rich gannon would tell him where to go or whatever and he won at tampa with another loaded football team. We're gonna talk about that later. Show but he had. Brad johnson veteran quarterback who would tell him. Now leave me alone. I got this right right right okay. So that was john at his worst and then at his best on the last play in their car to his credit he puts up with it. He is listed derek. Their cards a good dude tries hard rock resort. He plays hardy works. And he puts up with a lotta you-know-what jon gruden and he doesn't bellyache bitch about a publicly he just keeps playing and to to i. I thought even though his. Qbr wasn't great last night. It was fifty three. I thought under the circumstances under the magnitude under the pressure that they found themselves under. I thought it was derek cars. Greatest game of his career all told everything that happened in that game was he not all time clutched down the stretch. Now you can discredit what could be a lot of had. A lot of drops to wallow dropped several hidden that up. I'm glad you brought that up. He through nineteen balls to darren. Wall wall nineteen balls. Do not want that again. He sort of hybrid wideout tied. And i don't know what he is but they just forced the ball to dare waller because he's six six or whatever he is and he can view that yes. Okay we get that. But the point is he only caught ten of them for one hundred and five yards that those are good numbers at the nineteen targets and only ten catches. He won't fight for anything he will give. Derek carr no help at all. And i think we have one play that caught my the end near the end of the half and he throws it up for their waller and security. Just can't you into all you have to do is a little bit in. Their car looked at the sidelines. Just put your hands up almost like you tried to want like you tried to one hand. It is like yes to an on. Yes yes happened repeatedly in the football game where the unless the past hitting right on the button he would not fight for it he would not adjust to it. Forty nine ball sees that guy disappears and blocked the sink. He's been there yesterday. According nine okay the guy goes away. Now you fake forty nine saying free free okay. But with the ball is highly catchable. Yes and it's going to be a thirty yard game. Yes and their cars like just put your hands up okay and it happened. Repeatedly he gets no help from a guy he targeted nine. Yes yes okay so now. Let's look at what derek carr did down the stretch if we can. Let's look at the first drive that that put them back. They had fallen behind twenty four seventeen to tie the game and he converts a third and ten at the for the baltimore. Forty seven in the throat or rugs were he had to throw it across the fields. They can just replay. The i knew why john. Jonathan overran the play. It's somewhat similar if we could see it but this is third. Tins is a huge play in the game. This win or lose play. And he just drops it right down the chimney to rugs in it was a sweet throat and then he throws it your mandera waller. And then he throws the touchdown pass their waller and all of a sudden. We're back to twenty four. All clutch drives that point in the game. Because that's that's with four minutes left in three minutes left okay. Then lamar says i got this. He makes set great. Run up the middle. They get the field goal from the best kicker and pro football as we talked about me times and all of a sudden only thirty seven seconds left in regulation with no timeouts bureau. And how can you do this. All of a sudden brian edwards has been nowhere to be found in the offense and all sudden. He starts going to brian edwards out of the blue the kid from south carolina scale. Why are you play coverage situation. All right well. Are these not good. Throws gem say it's from a defensive perspective. Why would you go man covered okay. Let's see the throw. He goes twenty and eighteen to brian edwards different. We'll give you. Why are you doing this. But he's covered. He's pretty well covered. I those are big time club. That after last one was big time had some issues on it. Not that one this one. This one is beans. That's four the game. You're going to lose if you don't make that throw no time out. And he made the throw to set up a sixty five yard sealed guy had laid. Okay well he did any good from fifty boomed it. He did because. I think his adrenaline was pumping black hole. Like out of his mind. Okay so now. He's on fire and he carries it over into overtime. They win the toss and let's look at what he did or he was over brian edwards. Let's let's see these. This is just clutch city. He's out of his mind. That'll work okay though. That was the one that we thought had one when the game okay. So here's the. Here's the throat to brian edwards. That looked like it had won the game. I thought he got in. Actually until i saw the replay and everybody else thought he got in the raiders celebrated. The raiders shook hands with the ravens. They bro hug they did. They're talking about the wives and kids how you doing sees a An all the sudden whoops you got to go back and do it again. Taylor's leatherwood the its first and goal at the one yard line and now it started because their car tried to sneak it and just couldn't push the pile and then leatherwood the rookie from alabama. He moves and now. You're in big trouble. Because now you go all the way back to their and got an incomplete and here we come here we go and he throws it and i thought snead should've caught the ball. There was a little too much put mustard mustard but still i just thought that has to snag. That ball. does the game's over. But he did not. That was just an incomplete well-covered to renfro and play in question right through hands off a helmet into a ravens hands. Okay this radio and thought this was for the ravens gill and it felt like what has become typical raiders collapse. Yes it felt like what can go wrong. just went. Wrong for the raiders. Because they had first and goal at the one to win the game and all of a sudden. It's the ravens ball going the other way and you know and i know what happened. The the strip set by nassir happen skip. You mentioned there were throws that you see lamar. Make throw to sammy. Watkins the throw on the move to a hollywood brown. And then there's two there's two stretches where they run a boot and he has the fullback wide open any it at his feet and then on third down at eight. He has the back on the rail on the rim right on the sidelines. Skip and he throws it ten yards in front of him those still. It's the little things that people think is yet a lot of times. It will come down to a throat. Yeah but in a situation like this is those throws that. Keep you on the field that keeps you in a rhythm. Those are the throws that really good quarterback got it. They make more. And i'm not saying no quarterback makes every drive. I know but he did win the mvp. Yes he was making all those. Yes yes but skip at this point in time. Eight yard stick route has got to be automatic. Gas standing on the sideline with no pressure in your face has to be automatic. Yeah okay but in the end. I loved watching this football game because both teams competed there behind. Yes because what. I love about your old team. The ravens is the pride still last. They're the pride in that locker room. Okay so they lost. They lost edwards in the lost justice. Zeal and then. They lost marcus. Peters on top of it and a lot of teams would be down in the mouth heads hanging. They came out and fought their tails in. I appreciate that. The quarterback fights his tail off to a to a fault. Yes as he tries to do a little too and he loses the football but for once. The raiders showed me some refused to lose. And it started with the quarterback. And i just don't know if he can play much better than data against a defense that can be tricky to play against because they are so well coach and they so versatile and they throw so many different looks at you and he stood strong all night long thanksgiving. The thing is that the ravens have always had that one guy be it so the out the at matthew judah maybe dare your smith pernell mcphee when he was in earlier i. They've always had one guy that they could always count on to get home. Yep now wink martindale half the scheme have to bring more. But he doesn't have a meal he doesn't have the other marcus peters back there now. I don't know if you can still run that same skiing when you have less players on the back end to cover up because if they don't get home skipped you play zero coverage. There's nobody there and you see their car. Retreat loved the ball up road coming out with cross the field. You see edwards catching the ball us and not just. don't know skip. You might have to change philosophy. I know this is your principal. This what you believe in. But you don't have the horses. I mean a if. I don't have the horses. I'm not entering the dougie derby because i don't have a horse that can win and so that's a wink wink. Martindale do they give you know who's coming down for the night right homeboy. Now you run. That covers a give him entire rico for three hundred and by the way. Kansas city has beaten baltimore. Four straight and mahomes has beaten the lamar all three times. Reno against lamar in this once again in baltimore. Yes you have to figure that one out let me tell you what you don't do don't runs me real covers tyreek. That is not a rate of it. Don't have the he got. Don't have it easy either because the road in pittsburgh so we're gonna find we're gonna find a lot about what baltimore now. I know what. I believe what i think they are because i was in that locker room and even though i wasn't in there with another them give it stays that that pride stays give if you don't know if you saw last night when they were locked walking out the locker room they have a they have a mat. Play like a raven the that'll monroe with him. Because that's the last thing they want you to see as you walk out the locker understand your raven hip. I got that that too. Although i have to say it was probably a long flight home good last night after that. But what a way to close it out guys. We had so much action over the weekend and it just so much to look forward to this season. Let's hear it for the precious metal scratchers from the virginia. Lottery tab. yeah precious metal scratchers. They contain prizes ranging from. Hey let me just mention the second. Chances it's Album fair to go platinum here. Have a platinum scratcher. Really precious metal scratchers from the virginia lottery loaded with prizes ranging from five thousand one million dollars in a second chance to one hundred fifty thousand dollars. Check out all four for odds and more information visit the lottery dot com charlotte wilder. Here to tell you about my new podcast with marc titus called the people sports podcast. It comes out every thursday and more. Can i take one of the big stories of the week and then we go off on tangents. You never saw coming. This might mean that we start talking about the dodgers winning the world series and end up wondering if knicks fans deserve happiness or begin with bronze greatness and end up drafting. Our ultimate beer league softball team made up of old athletes whatever. It is the only rule of the shows. It has to be fun and funny because these days we could all use as many laps as we can get so. Check it out wherever you get your podcasts. And come down weird sports rabbit holes with us. We can't wait to have you. Cowboys seemed to be in limbo weekly with players. Going in and out of the lineup offense lineman now collins will miss five games due to suspension and receiver. Michael gallup was placed on. I r yesterday. Dallas activated offensive guards act martin from the code list placing pass rusher. Rainy gregory on it burger still has a chance to play clears to negative tests before playing the chargers this weekend so she had an honest. Trouble are the cowboys in when they play at the chargers. This weekend thought this going to be a tough game anyway. Because the chargers they show they started showing you something last year at the end of the season and that quarterback is better than than better. And i don't know of anybody i know. A lot of people say they like this kid. But i don't think anybody thought this. Not thirty one touchdown news rookie season. He played extremely well and he pick right up where we left off last year. But i thought this was going to be a tough game. It's going to be the first game home and the defense is better than you think. Joy botha even allow collars was their joy both the guy that does a great job of transferring speed the power the age he can rush with power so he's tremendous. He is good in the league at the imposition derwin. James is back healthy. They have players in the secondary. That can call your problem now for the other side now. Gallop's gallop is the guy that they probably will miss the lease. Because you still have a mar. You still have cd lamb. I liked the wilson. I think wilson does a great job coming in agreed. I think they have enough on that side of the ball. Gregory is another is another issues. Give because he's the guy that can generate pressure and that's where the cowboys are lacking in getting pressure. The you really want to be able to just stand back. There pat iraq and just take keenan allen a williams whomever he liked. Jared cook. don't think so. So i think of all the guys that could possibly miss. I think gregory would be the one that they missed. The most for the simple fact. Remember tom brady. You saw what tom brady just did it. Because they didn't get the pressure so for me. Let lau collars issue. Would they get that mark baton. So i think the thing for me is that i think the cowboys will struggle probably win this game. But i'm not ready to pick probably win this game but i'm not ready to pick. Why wait a second after all that doomsaying. That came out of your mouth and you slip in at the end. They're probably going to go in this game there. Three point dogs though. Say gallops out. I like wilson now if coop without you might have you might you know now you might be onto something because cd would just take it would take over but i just think the thanksgiving of all the guy that's going to be out. I think the guy that that they're going to miss the most is and we don't know he's still by skipped because he's vaccinated five days the couple of negative tests and he's going to be able to play. I'm just just listened. Let's just say for the sake of argument he plays now. You down gallup really is that i don't really think so skinny but this game will lose or draw is going to be much more difficult than you think and then guess what fly. Eagles fly fly. He goes. It's a monday night. Game back at gerry world. So it'd be two weeks from last night be jalen hurts at gerry world. Yeah yeah yeah only become a big eagles fan this. It's funny i touted. The eagles pooh-poohed them all off season. You said they're just garbage. Jalen hurt hurt. She just don't believe in and all the sudden it's fly. Eagles fly. You were on the washington bandwagon off-season and all sudden after one game losing to one team. The chargers you say enough of those gifts. The quarterback got a dislocated hip to put one wide receiver. They just got putting our what do you what do you. What do you want me to do. I i try to tell you the whole off season. That taylor heinecke is better than fits match-ups he wouldn't listen to me. Because i watched. Taylor heineke i late. In the season go up gave me. He came in with the business. The eagles will against carolina remember gifts and he was we care about. Yeah and he was alex smith. He was really good and then against tampa in that first round playoff game he was really good he was he was facing. He was lighten him up and he can run and obviously fits. Magic can't run much at all know and unfortunately you can't run it all right now because he's got here. I don't know how much you'll be able to run when he comes back combs. But i don't know so to me are not writing anybody off the division but here is my take away from all the above. I will admit when i saw that. Michael gallup has gone onto. I are so it's at least three weeks and could be four or five six weeks with a calf whatever strain pull. What have you and you. And i've talked about cavs for years on the show once you get one of those. Just stop shia zack. Martin have in the washing game on thanksgiving pulled. His calf early in the game on i drive done pushing. You gotta you gotta walk like you can get your done. We get that so that was discouraging decided the lease and then also i read another story. Randy gregory's on the covert list. Because he's they just flat out said he got covert but vaccinated. No symptoms may be a chance if you can pass to straight tests so okay so i sat back and i said you know what this year. I'm not going to fall into this. A am i. I'm not going to go aaron rodgers. Because he's always doomsaying about my need more input they don't treat me right. They drafted my successor blah blah blah blah. I'm not gonna do it to my team. I'm going to look at. The glass is not half full. But but it's like nine tenths full. Because i love your point about cedrick wilson. I can actually make a case. They'll be a little better without gallup. As much as i believe in gallup's is a deep threat and a tough guy. He made some big catches the other nine. The first half was gone for the whole second. Half cedrick wilson is shifty and he's got a little bit of element amendola where he can. He can live better food on him his lot. Yeah and he can sort of duck and dart around an option route it in the middle of the field and maybe make a few catches. He'll catch it if you get it within. The i shot him. So i kind of liked the fit with him in the slot and let cd do what he should have been doing all last year. Which is split out wa sa. Do a maris amari so if i got my two studs outside and cedric inside. I should be okay. It might be time for zeke to rise and shine and again. They just went up to tampa. Last year led the league in shutting down the run. And i just think they went into the game and kelly moore said. We just can't do this and they barely even tried that. And i still say i was very disappointed in zeke on that huge third-down play on the pitch play. Because i'm just telling you the more i think about you and your dixon both argued with me on this but i thought if you get him on the edge against the guy who just got activated off the practice squad bounced around the league and undrafted free agent safety just got either beat him to the pylon or just run right through him. Your ezekiel elliott. And you make the most money of any running back in football so i need to see that guy. I need to see zeke in full force full throttle in this game. Were they can balance up and run the football now back to the offensive line. At least zack. Martin is back for and he's not coming off an injury. He's coming off cove right so by the way speaking to covert my team now has tinned covert list since the started training camp seriously. Well what's going on in texas exactly exactly so. They are sort of a microcosm of the state of texas. They're just going to get hit hard by kobe and they have been pretty hard. Because there's no bubble situation. There's no bubble i got it okay so now. Back to zack. martin. I told you yesterday. I still think there's a chance you moving to the all the way out to this. I believe they did it twice last year out of desperation and i did love the way. Connor mcgovern's stood in for him at right guard at tampa and held up all night long. I thought he was really good. Okay so if you have to in a pinch out of desperation move him out to right. Tackle just to try to survive the game. I'm okay with that. He won't be okay with it. I will be a hall of fame right guard but gotta take one for the team. You're not going to be at your greatest because it's not where you're comfortable exactly because i'm an all pro guard. Probably going to have a bus in candidate guard. And you put me at tackle where you could possibly make me look ordinary. I'm not tried to look ka joy. Both is legit skip. I don't know how many people really understand what with joy bolsa is legit telling us. I never doubted. He's like what about next week. And i moved to right tackle next week against the eagles poll dealing with joey both okay. How legit is tied necessity. That's who we signed as a backup swing tackle. You got what about steel. What about night. What about them. Steel studios demanding steel. Shouldn't he be good with field. And of steel in neider undrafted. Free agents really. I don't trust it. i don't like it. You have to go in a pinch. With zack martin. I think it'll take one for the team. And i think it will inspire the mayo last night. If you tell you about the mayor right deal. He'll be tough breakable. I don't think so guard. I still love my team. And all i needed for my team to win the least and this is a huge swing game because to your point you would not want to fall down to come home to face a suddenly hot eagles rain because they well might be to know buy in and on fire to come in dallas where i thought jalen hurts played pretty well. Last year is give to thing trae bond deeply willie did a great job of mike arizona. You did a great job with came out a different type of receiver. Keenan mainly works out of the slot yell he tremendous route run from tremendous. He doesn't have great speed long speed but in a confined space. You couldn't tell them in a phone booth so if they put digs on him he'll have his work because you have to do a lot of start. Stop change direction things. So look the thing about so i i understand. The chargers are coming home. But i got a sneaky suspicion and be more cowboy fans in their stop. Potential southern california is cowboy man. How to happen heaven how to help when you walk in the door here at fox in the morning you see our man the security guard downstairs and he is an all time cowboy born in la one hundred auto security guys a hundred dollars. He bet the cowboy the temper and he got off at four o'clock and i made him wait because he tried to pass the monday after the hand handed to him. I said now you gonna wait dot get here. Who's off at four. I got here five thirty five. They were nine point dogs. Did you give him any point. I gave him whatever they scored and it wouldn't more than emperor really took him to the cleaners. Sure take them again to well. Tell him that. I got his back from you on this show because i would not have made that back but now it sounds like you have been won over by what you saw on opening night at tampa. Because you're afraid of my cowboy. Just plunge out there and say i got to charge gloating over his hold on skill we got into. We got tomorrow. Wednesday thursday friday. Who knows you just said you. They'll probably probably where that is. Tuesday that is not a friday when we automate. Make our beds. Who so will we make our best. You never know. Cowboys have made a believer out of shannon sharpe. Three point game three points give ee the other way around my friend. Y'all got dak. Prescott told me i got ta five is back and he is. He played top-five. The other would be five point five points. I'm not gonna let you security guard money from the security. Instead i talk to you a nice of you fall off within a last field goal. Losing your one hundred dollars you realize that right. I had tom brady. Okay well there you go thank you. You show the cub seats. It over to urge him player of the week honors from pro football. Focus the forty four year old quarterback threw for three hundred seventy nine yards and four touchdowns during a thirty one at twenty nine win or the box and will look to continue that momentum. Heading into a matchup with the falcons. This weekend on fox shannon. Do you have a problem with this Yes i have a big problem with. This and tom brady play will but i don't think i don't think anybody that watched sunday's games thought. Tom brady played. Better than tyler murray. Who went on the road in a lot of people had tennessee. Believe in tennessee is a serious serious deep playoff super bowl contending team and he took them apart mahomed what he did at home against cleveland. Skip bayless is super bowl team. He took them apart. He was down by twelve down by nine in the fourth jameis winston fourteen or twenty one forty eight five touchdowns he only had six incompletions matthew staffer twenty twenty three twenty three touchdowns one fifty six point one the highest quarterback rating of his career. Not as fair. tom. Brady you realize tom brady. Only completed sixty four percents of his passes that was twentieth and completion percentage for week. One top rated have five. Big time throw did you. The calamar has six big time pros. So i'm just trying to calamar had a turnover. Tom brady had two turnovers. Tom brady had five big time. Parole calamar has fixed big-time. Tom brady threw four touchdowns calamar through four hundred and have another one on the ground. And the team ain't nobody talk about cowboy zoo but you potentially but everybody tennessee legit data guy. Julio tanny he'll aj brown derrick. Henry wow good. Team cleveland browns. You all baker. Old breaker may for your obregon bayfield guy. He guy you you said. He looked good he. Da look good. Look good him homeboy killed. I just gave you four guys. I mentioned teddy bicycle. Teddy bridgewater. we're to the giants he was deputy. Yeah debt right on victory. We got someplace too. But anyway the way that fourth down touchdown pass through on this little scramble. What are the giants are. Are you not tackle that guy. I'm just wondering we go ahead and the jazz band. Yeah but anyway skipped. I just gave you five guys column home. James stafford really played better than tom brady. Did the kaaba deeper. We already know mean you notice. Cover deep deep. If terrible is not told be fifty percent better than last year and it might be seventy five percent better deal like what twentieth you know. What would on this show. We need to put somewhere in. The studio of big red. Light just starts blinking on and off with a big foghorn attached to because it's brady hate alert boy. We need it brady alert. It's coming again. It's already started in. it's just week one. I keep trying to tell you who and what. This man is at forty four. He's going on twenty four. I've already told you. I've predicted he's going to win the mvp this year. And i believe his team against all odds. You got me on this because you won't talk about. This is as far out on the limb. I've ever been on this or any show i've ever been on. I'm saying he can lead them to twenty zero this year twenty and they will be favored to win every game. They play and i believe he will close all those deals. It's virtually impossible unless you're thomas. Edward patrick brady. Junior and opening night against my team play inspired flawless football. He did that. He did absolutely nothing wrong and he did everything right and i agree with everything you just said about those. Would you have four or five quarterbacks. They were all spectacular. But they weren't quite as good as this guy. Here's the capsule from your favorite website. Pro football focus brady. Put the ball right where it needed to be all night long bingo and finished with five big time throws you pointed al qaeda and you did not point this part out and no turnover or the plays because even the hall of famer shannon sharpe said the two interceptions nothing wrong. They're both qualities you're right there honest resume but you can't fault him for a little flip pass that hits four net right in the hands and glances off his hands. Writer theron digs. You can't fault brady for that. And then he tries at the end of the half a hail mary. There was actually a great through like sixty five yards in the air groups down there. I don't know where gronk was grants not very good at leaping for hail marys that is not as forte and also in the ball gets booted up in the air and it comes down to cowboys arms. And that's not tom. Brady's fault so no. Turnover worthy plays pro. Football focus goes on to say he was throwing receivers open. It's genius at work. You just sit back and say how does he do that. Goes onto say attacking their leverage and executing offense with perfect timing. It was perfection personified on full display on opening thursday night football. It was a tour to force. It was a masterpiece. What did you say it's pavarotti at the sydney opera. Not on that no. It's a game that you wish you could just package in place up on the mantle in the museum where it was one for the ages. He is the one and only of the ages. And before i let you have the ball back. I just want to demonstrate some of the place that. Tom brady made on thursday night against my inspired new look cowboy defense. He rolled out. He's on the run thorn across his body. To gronk for touchdown is you can't throw it anymore. Sweetly the net to a beaver touch for forty seven yards. Then that was the masterpiece of the night where they read the blitz. They know that all the sudden de laws going to have to cover him and you know the rest of the story and then that was the here we go again. Here's the rollout throw this is just. There's a thing of beauty and then this plate of gronk. This is double genius at work. The goat tight end from the goat quarterback reading it and exploiting it to the fullest. And then this is the play with twenty four seconds left twenty four yards back shoulder to chris. Godwin on jordan lewis. That won the football game. You just i don't know it. You have to appreciate it because you're watching the greatest player in nfl history on full display at age forty four on a solo stage national kickoff game. You can't get any greater than this and pro football focus there no big fan of brady instead. That's exactly so. I'm trying to figure out. How did the guy the guy's safety five. Qbr every quarterback this list got a high qbr. Brady would tell you the next day on friday show. I told you i was dumbfounded blindsided. I was flummoxed. I was gobsmacked. Yeah i i don't know how you could even begin to say that's a safety because nothing went wrong. Show me show me the flaws. Show me the fly in the oriented. The fly in the soup. I i don't see any flies but my thing is if you let's take james. Do we believe green bay. Everybody says green bay is a serious super bowl contending team he took them apart cleveland out on james again now we have to nitpick but you realize when he hit the fifty five yarder late in the fourth quarter right. That was the at that point. He had ninety eight yards passing. It was high-skill high efficiency in the reds touchdowns in the regio all short passes nothing much between the twenty. Okay right okay. Okay so i can't if you make me nitpick there nick okay. Okay nitpicking. you're doing a great job with that. Gets him kneeling three pick. This with matt stafford mythic. That i'd rather go to the top two homeboy nitpicking. Let let me ask you. This did the dallas cowboys. Turn the football over three times. Because cleveland handed the whole game. Back to patrick mahomes. It was one thing. After another fumble it was the punter muffing the snap. It was baker at the end of the game. Getting tackled from behind trying to throw it out of bounds. Falling down and not getting enough on the football and pick three second-half blunders that handed the game back to. Patrick did my dallas cowboys hand. The game tom brady no they didn't do anything wrong. They play dak played arguably his greatest game ever skew. But my homework when you say. Baker couldn't get enough throw my home. Were rolling out of bounds. Falls out of bosnia throws at fifty and it was pure luck with look auto grabs laws. It's like it was a fifty fifty ball that john johnson complete misplayed. He lost the football in the air and he could not find it and tyreek to his credit stopped and found it okay and all of a sudden once he founded card. John johnson is run himself completely. The and tarek says oh. I'm gone charles. Q calamar twenty. One of thirty two eighty nine four touchdowns and a rushing touchdown put up. Thirty eight points on a playoff. Take the tennessee. Titans past six big time thrills. Patrick homeboy twenty. Seven of thirty six. Three thirty three three touchdowns came back from twelve. Second half not in the fourth quarter to beat the bear. Browsed that once. Get betas. Says his tampa bay buccaneers. We'll beaten superbowl matthew stafford. Twenty of twenty six three twenty one. Three thousand gives the bears not a bear not play particularly well that night but you and i both know when the come at the end of the season. The bears will have a top flight defense and tom brady with fifty times. Nobody else was admitted with over forty eighteen completions to intercession completed sixty four percent of his passes which was twentieth playing horrible defense. And they're talking about a whoever defense i think. Not skill bela's the cowboys really really really. Yeah so there are an average defense which is way better question. Do you believe they have at the end of the year. They have a better defense than the bears. Yes or no yes no. Would they have to have a better defense than the cleveland browns. No okay would. They have a defendant green bay. I'm starting to wonder about that okay. It's fifty fifty. Okay so with that being fed your gas sixty four percent. Completion percentage your guy. Thanks if we are calamar. Eight caliber skew. Maho eighty eight. Eighty james ninety. Three's staffer camp. I look at all of them. Were really good but they weren't skilled. Tom brady measure quick to see you. See what you did there. I went to take. I want you to take off the back of that. Jury input john's on the back of that jury given stats garo. T. i guarantee donald bucket a cow manure. And i'll let you put the doorknob bucketful skill. Stop this man. I don't want kalomo newer golden doorknob. I think your argument has become cow. Manure you watch you watch you there. But also the night i saw and i saw this and i just sat back and said that's just too great here. That's beyond comprehension. How great that was against the team that everybody except you think. Even the next day agreed they were way better. The dallas cowboys. Then you thought they were going to be because you said blow out in it. It went down to the last drop. And you knew. I knew the world knew that dallas cowboys left too much time on the clock when they were forced to kick their game winning field goal. One twenty four left is way too much time for that guy because he's the goat and he showed you again he just doted the dallas calorie. Utah utah up by twelve points and you had the ball. You just knew you were going to win the game. You just knew it so. Let me ask you a question. When the season started with the dallas cowboys as far as power rankings. Were they ranked in front of the tennessee. Titans where they ranked the head of the cleveland browns. Were they rank the head of the green bay. Packer is a simple. Yes or no question. No to the game. Were they were. Everybody's is open to wait a second dan. Quinn's doing some stuff with that defense. Mica parsons is going to be a force and a star. All demarcus lawrence rose and shown randy gregory. God blesses soul. He is forced to reckon with coming off the other edge. And all of a sudden. You've got your pieces in place. They are so deep at linebacker. They come in waves at you. They are seventy five percent. Better be run but put stop paying. Tom brady's after the game. That's a solid defense. Saw question when. Tom brady played the ravens did he say. That's a solid defense or that was a great defense. Noted you see that now. Solid team Lewis not say we had ed reed. It's safety describing the dallas cowboys. They got a lot of drought picks. What is that says that when they think somebody's good they got some draft picks but yeah everybody got draft pick. That's a solid team that pc. They some boo john. That what he's saying so bhuj. I would say they some boo john skill. You look i just not diminish tom brady scale. I just gave you guys. Teddy teddy bicycle have another things. Qbr had hired by the last qbr the weekend. What about rose with on the road end is going to be a playoff team took apart. I guessed it i called. He's going to win. Mvp at age forty four. And you're a guy who tried to send him home five years ago at like everybody Do y'all think. Tom brady had the best quarterback the best quarterback this weekend. You need help from okay. We'll have mobilized they're only about seventeen billion we need. We need to get the survey. We need to get the survey survey. Beat i lose everyone argument because the people who know they don't vote this no not. Now you've got baylor's dow. Oh yeah that's way beyond brady you would have. I'm not saying tom. They'll play well. But i just do not believe he played better than the guys that i mentioned. And you and you know it. I two. I told you this. After the game i told you friday i called it up front. I'm not betting against that man. But because i knew give homeboy timber. Feeling not till you you win championships. In september will be. He'll be guess. What are you gonna be. He's gonna be right there in january and february two. What happened when mahone space brady in the afc championship game at home. Do like you say the baby. He was a baby onto his baby. It what happened the next year really where he went to new england and foot you. Yeah y'all unfortunately able to get back. Could we looking for. Y'all happened when they met in the super bowl. I can't rebel a really off land. Yeah it's always something off the with a new orleans. Put y'all you blame everybody. He threw that pigs over day. You blame to receive a got. The guy did whatever happened to happen to you because you spoke out against you. Why is he throwing about from yale. He went to yell. Sub zero to some ivy league in forty to heal targeted him twice last year and both of them got you blame the gas. Tom was late on both roads. But you blame the guy. The twelve deep receivers even on the chart. You appreciate you feel good that you've got bit name. I can't remember justin watson. Yeah whatever the would you got embiid. Tom brady play better than my guys are good sign. I've got bell sunday. Aaron rodgers and the packers suffered a thirty five point loss. The worst loss was had as a starter and after the game did take responsibility. Admitting he played bad but also added quote. It's just one game with sixteen to go shannon Do you like the way that aaron handled a lot right. He is played but he don't. Don't understand that ramp aaron. You don't understand that you play like stir. Fry fry that i'm talking about. Yeah so you own that he needs to own. It and i think he's trying to do that. But i don't want to minimize the role that the saints played him playing bad skilled. Look one game. At six percent of the season they got ninety. Four percent of the season. Live now you heard what his coach floor say. We should be embarrassed. We should be embarrassed and so that let him say that. I ain't say that we've got sixteen games go so now we're already we already. We already in conflict. Seemed like read. Look aaron said you're a couple of years ago he said relaxed. He spelled it out and everything was okay. I'm not gonna over at one way or another win. Lose a draw. I don't like the overreacting game one. Because there's so much of the season left but and this is a great opportunity for them to to come back this weekend and to show that they're better but for me. I think people are making a lot more seeing all the all the off season conflict see. It showed his ugly head. Habit won the game everybody goes. They see had no impact on it. I told erin they lose. That had an impact they win. It would have had no impact give saint some credit. I think the biggest thing is that green bay underestimated them being displaced no drew brees jameis winston and they underestimated member. Before you know it they were standing on the hair with both feet so in a situation like that on it he owned it. They know they need to play better. But the days of just skipped. You can't just show up nine in there a time when the team was just so much better. The forty nine is back in eighty. They could show up and they won't win your cowboys back in the nineties. They show they were gonna win. Skip the team or two good now. The team to good the league has changed the way they teach. You guys can throw the football. You really never out of it kind of like basketball with three point shot. Never being out of the ball game but aaron played bad and he should own that he played you. Make the most money you get those credits you. Mvp should get the most lane. Now you'll get all the credit and they want to talk about going to dispense the blame. Aw new no but play terrible. Skip knotted up about it okay. Once again aaron rodgers nugget. Get a pass on this side of the table on full display right here right now is why aaron rodgers does not belong in this same galaxy. Tom brady in here. We're i'm going too far. Won't brady again. But he is showing you on full display in tampa bay. He's the greatest leader in the history of sports. He has transformed the suchan ears franchise into winners who in his first year obviously broke through and won super bowl. And i believe they should be favored to win this year's super bowl. I believe they will. It starts and finishes with that guy playing that leadership position in ways. Aaron does not play it. Aaron is obviously an all time great thrower the football you say. He's a transcendent view of the football. You say he is the greatest. Throw the football in the history of this league and there are many sundays. I can't argue with right. it's off platform. It's it's wrong and the footwork is horrendously bad. You don't that with the armed talent is bill and the feel the nasdaq. The i four. It is so special that he can get away with it. And actually thrive on horrendous footwork. And i cannot take away last year because he took the league over during the regular season and ran away with the mvp. Yes but after that game on sunday it was simply the worst performance of his career. It's a long career now. Because he's thirty seven years of age it required him to clean the slate by taking full blame after the game. He mentioned yeah. I played battery acknowledged that he sort of agreed with a question. Yeah i play bad. But he didn't own it bad he didn't go to. I'm embarrassed he didn't say that's on me. Even lebron tweet the tweeter. Tw- post on edgy. Last night about he loved what lamar did because you could read his lips after the second fumbled. That's on me. Yes because he took it hard after the game and he said just on me. I did my fault. Well not saying the whole game was on air but those two interceptions were just source there sort of hard to watch in their shocking playing up. He wouldn't play well before the assumption after we can just see what they were just so we can sort of compute them again. Sort of just i. I have no idea what that was. Nor does aaron at that point. That just looked like he didn't care this this little. Don't care like what the hell. What the hell. I'll just throw it up. Maybe my guile catch it or maybe they'll catch it because there are two of them one of i'll just thought about seventy yards. Maybe who knows will happen. He didn't seem invested in this game. He seemed checked out from the start. So now i'm back to the interview erin. Andrews did for our fox brigade game show and it was tremendous and i loved every second of it for us and for the audience. I did not love it for the green bay packers because he won't let anything go from the off season that okay. He's still angsting. He's still soul searching. He's still pouting in a about the they wanted to replace me. You know my my name's going to be up in that ring of honor one day paraphrase. Now he said it right and they treated me like. I don't want input from me dad. Guess what a lot of those guys names up there. They had to move on elsewhere. A lot of people named up there and the stadium had to move on elsewhere. It you know lifetime guarantee so it. It would do his team so much. Good if he would just embrace the loss in say. I have to be so much better than i was and recommit this week to getting ready for the detroit lions. Okay what did we see. From the lions. They were getting blown out at all in at least. The new coach has instilled a little bit of pride in outset to where they would not quit and right and they almost got back in the game right. They roared all the way back and recovered an on side. So at least they showed you a little fight right okay. They also lost jeff okuda. Who was the third picking the draft two years ago. a stud corner any towards achilles. Look i mean he would getting chewed out on the sideline for giving up what eighty plus yard or two But you know what. He's a really talented kid and they lost him so to. That's still a big law. Psychologically to the team so now they gotta go to. Lambo for is next monday next monday night in. They're going to be up against it. And i don't know if errands just sit and resting on his laurels and looking around the division like minnesota seriously. They just lost in chicago. They looked hapless in a hopeless at ram. the fans. Don't even want the quarterback that's quarterback rookie to play with the rookie to play. Okay so maybe erin saying you just r. e. l. a. x. because he's looking at division that is is just begging to be right right. Okay so i get all that but there's something missing here to the point that hark back to that bleacher report piece that bombshell scathing article about aaron. We're after they hired leflore they did not ask for his input and you know the top man call him instead at mark i mean mark murphy called him and said aaron. Don't you be the problem is. That's basically what that executive branch of the packers thinks of. Erin he's he's always the problem. Let's get by never seen somebody mad at everybody but you go above. Sit at one of your balls but all other. You don't like the head coach. You g you utilize to see got the damn you upset and everybody. It causes such negativity in that. Once you get up against brady in a home. Nfc championship game. Your character gets tested in in it just explodes right before your very eyes in the fourth quarter they just unravel right buzzkill for me. I'm not walking around on the issue for no player. i'm the boss. I'll give you on happy. You don't play you hear this year and then we're talking next year it'll be next year. Okay but hair. The thing i also i want to mention i. I would be remiss. If i didn't mention this cowboy fans you lean drum major. The cowboy parade of big bear bay giddy. That you play the defending champs. Play them close. Green bay fans are shot. Do they lost to the face. Matters drew brees. And guess what both of your record you got a cold for. What we get usually. Oh dax play the game with career seedy. Mara you see that up. Its own one who played better greenberg dude that in. Oh we play better at a loss. I told you it's under review at the league office as we speak. If they're thinking about awarding the cowboys tie for that moral victory tie effectively tied them. You said it if you were you. Thousands of thousands. You never declared anything more you you know. As a matter of fact you you built your reputational. Not being more obese okay. All in an immoral victim wanted to be. We played the heck out. Skip who still. I'm still like vibrating from it. Because i'm on fire with how good this team can be. All i needed to be is the best team in the least doodoo roulet. The cowboys are that five years old. Okay it is out here. It's not how you win. How did we go from aaron rodgers to the you. Try what you try to skip. I've said it. Aired the oldest. Now he maybe he didn't own it into terms. Grab the gravitas that you want him to do so you want him to get out of the bay pointed out. It was just classic. The head coach said we got embarrassed in areas. Like no no you you can have. I wanted embarrassed. I'm gonna go home and have nine this livers or whatever. They are bigger than tequila tequila. Okay have fun right. No but skip if they give we lost you. They might say that you guys should be embarrassed. Okay that's what he said. Okay we are. I mean you do realize we lost about thirty. So what's that to be embarrassed about. Whip professionals we're professional professionals and they beat the brakes. Office is not like alabama playing mercy. It's not like you know your school. Oklahoma played western carolina. The talent disparity is not that so anytime with team beats you buy you know three four or five. Yeah you're embarrassing or you should be if you're in the wrong if you didn't know why so what is so good. I want here no talking on the bus on the plane. You be like ain't nothing. You should hear a pin drop. I want enough that we lose again. We love the gays. Get them it was like a morgue was another team so i can't speak. I could talk about it. The ravens the broncos. Because that's where. I played my fourteen year and it was. It was a different type of feeling when you lost a ball game. Well i've one night when fateful night. I wrote back on cowboys charter. After they had lost this early in. Jimmy's rain there. They had lost a playoff game at detroit. Thirty eight to six was and he walked back through the back of the plane. I happen to be in the near side of the coach section and he walked back and saw poor. Frank cornish offensive. Lineman became the center. That is correct. He was the center and he happened to be chuckling at that moment and jimmy just went off on him because he wanted to send the message. This will not be tolerated on this plane. Going back that mike shanahan. what's funny. Okay i want to give you know we might be huddled up guys. you know. this is what happened. We need to do better than john. With like. okay you know. Hey one game. You know a rebound but kiki kid and okay funny about fourteen. Twenty one day you laugh at well. I wonder if aaron was kiki on the flights going back to green bay or event that mandate flab flab back vibe sale. I don't know got it all. He runs olo company. These days right. i don't know than i do. I don't think there will be no rematch between jake paul. Entire woodley hall kept it on us when he told reporters living parent in the past. He didn't live up to the baddie. Didn't get the tattoos so the rematch just doesn't make sense anymore. Next opponents for paul now range from purity's half brother. Tommy furey to forty six year old. You have legend anderson silva or shannon. What should j. paul do nets that's what he should do. He should stay away from jose marlboro. Stay away from them skip. He has a night. He's carved out a nice little nit carved out nice little place for himself. Just stayed there. You're fighting guys. Who are very limited boxing skills. You seem to be a dominant position. Stay there nice little novelty at you making three five million dollars of clip lead. Stay there. Just stay right this give you. You remember the movie and wheels character. He's telling you this is your space right here. Not get outside of that. What did he do he get out there. He drain he dancing. Stay right where you are. Jake paul and you'll make your nice little run. Some money reminds me of situations. I don't know if you remember. The guy boxer named butterbean. He used to be a tough guy. I do but it'd be with just way laying on people mobile backup people that own. Step it up. Boom started fighting boxes. Yeah got beat then. All of a sudden it wasn't cool to see butterbean anymore. Whereas now at if i'm not taking i think last i heard he was a chef. Deputy in jasper alabama. Some even homes damaged sixty years of age scale. Just stay there. Why are you trying to fight. These guys bra. This is the. Boxing is irt business You got to be serious with this. I don't know how you serious enough to take it where you can beat those guys that have very little skills. But you're talking about a guy like with who can stand and fight. You're talking about fighting silva de did he. Just say what you're talking about taking it. Skip got a nice little thing going here. Okay bottom line. I believe jake. Paul more than you believe in jake paul. I'm not saying he will ever become jerry quarry who is a tough guy who who actually student with aliya longer than i thought he would last. I'm not saying he's that guy. But what i do love about this kid is he's got guts and he's got smarts because these are great self promoter. I don't think he's going to do anything stupid. Right and one of those guys. That would be stupid. he's also a boxing. Baby he is a novice he is just getting his feet wet and his still little wet behind the ears but he showed me a little something against tyron woodley. Because i'm not going to underestimate the achievement took to beat woodley. Who is a even at thirty nine. He's a warrior man and he's been in hand combat at the highest levels. Obvious live ufc. I'm not saying he's the greatest striker and i. I'm definitely not saying. He was any anywhere near a skill box right because he had his openings and he could not take openings but the kids stood in took some shots live detail in one. The fight. And i thought he wanted farren square. Those one judge that went completely off the reservation. What that was about but the point was in the end. He will make the right choice. And i love how he put tie woodley on notice because he just flat out. Put it right out in the middle of the table if you had done what you said you were going to do and get that tattoo. I love jake ball hard tattoo to get a guy that got me another million dollars got it covered up. I got to keep it forever. He did not. But it's just a it's a matter of swallowing all of your pride and getting that tattoo and displaying it public with the man in vegas. He his home or better one hundred thousand dollars that he wouldn't get boobs went and got him okay. Four hundred grand so far another million for one point five to eight dollars. You wouldn't get a tattoo. I believe that payday would have been bigger. Absolutely i would agree with that. Okay so now what is next. Well there is this kid. Tommy furey who is the half brother of the most skilled heavyweight boxer of all time right so again. Is tommy skilled will. He took on the key. Jake paul sparring partner in the undercard him up. Yeah okay and i don't know what that means but would you buy that fight would you. Yeah well this is a rely boxer. He's also a novice box right. But would you buy yup. Because at least you'd say he's a real live barbara who is being taught at the highest level by the most skilled heavyweight right. Let's kill you talk about muslim. But moskva dolls he is. He's a bear fighter. I would i buy that fight. You better blow. Would you be on the. You would want jake paul to get put in his mouth dog although okay. What did he say about that. He said i would love that fight. Okay are you saying. He's biting off way more than well. I don't think he is. Because he's bigger than you think he is. I think he's a little more physical than you think he is. And he's starting to figure out remember he said that's that was my first time in the bright lights. I've never been where they had that. That is lebron's old. they him. It looked like an extinct bows pretty full me right so he said i had to learn how to pace myself in. Control my emotions under the brightest lights and again the paper. I don't know what they made off of it well. He gave a million dollars. Bits purse to people underneath so they can be make more than they've ever made in their life dollars a different type of atom now he. Is you talk about award yard. Allegory yeah okay i got it on there. I'm buying gonna write this off because his whole career if you look at him. Great self promoter but he takes high risks and he lives to tell he backs it up. He did a great thing. He's fighting been asked you. And he's fighting mate robinson he decided tyrod skill. You i got it cape. May be tommy. Furey would be the next step. And maybe if he could be tommy theory then maybe start thinking about or hey moskva. But the leave anderson silva low anderson. Civil legit boxer. He could he could did. He does see what he did. He's a bad man. I'm gonna try to get. Have this run. As long as i possibly can. Before they figure out demanded mental. Nobody do but by the time they figured out on made me forty five fifty meal and when you figured out okay. No no harm no vile. I think he's on that path right. I'm gonna stay right here. i'm gonna keep bite me guy. I call out somebody in hollywood advice last alone he was rocky. You wanna fight. But i'm not. I'm not stepping into because now you start stepping up in class with guys that actually know what the hell they're doing. You must get hurt if you're not careful. I'm not gonna write this off along with these day. Away from balls vidal silva. You're gonna be fine. I don't think you'll stay away from us. Okay thank you try it. Shannon shop will buy it yup along with about half the rest of the country. Even though it won't be a i'm gonna make players already. We'll be able to make my dinner. Rhodesia brought about nine thirty the abbey. But don't worry about it. Get rid in in narrow. You're gonna be in fields got on the field for five snaps in the bears season opening loss to the rams resulted in running for three touchdowns still feel is still entrenched as the backup. Qb behind andy dalton has chicago prepares to play cincinnati. This sunday on fox shannon. Here's the question should field start right now. No and i think back dagger doing a great job of protecting fields from the chicago bears fans just what happened in the preseason. He only average five point six yards per attempt in the preseason which finished dead last in the nfl in the regular season had that had he done that he held onto the ball to loan for the tax and he took a shot. You take very many of those. You'll be on our lost his helmet almost as head. Yeah yes he had linda. He'll skip. I think the worst thing to cowboy cowboys. The bears can do is send a player that i understand all the physical gifts his ability to run the football and he has made some plays. But i don't believe he's ready and matt nagy doesn't believe he's ready. He saw the transition when they had alex smith and patrick mahomes and then patrick mahomes. They had to wait entire year now. I'm not saying that. Justin field as patrick mahomes and i know damn well alex smith when alex smith within france. But i don't think matt nagy believes that justin feels skip is ready to take on the offense and do all the things that is necessary. Plus they have time. Do we really believe that. Justin feels make the bears a contending a playoff contending team. I don't necessarily believe that. But i believe the time will come whether he's ready or not because any don't will be ineffective they're going to have no choice but right now they need to wait a little bit more a little. Give him a little bit more time. I said it before and it looks like i've been proven right at least for one week's i said matt jones look to me a coming out of college as the most ready to play sunday. That back he backed me up. He laws put back it up. I think justin feels still needs a little bit more time. You have to learn how to push the ball. Down the field and get rid of the ball and skip. Do not make the mistake. If you'll land says would live fifty two might. Don't you look left. you better look right. So that guys coming unblocked. I think it's a little bit longer bang mayor and then a little bit longer. Quick point of order. I still say camera to win that game on game. I believe you're right matt nagy. Here's what he is protected to me. Not protecting justin feels. I believe matt nagy is protecting matt. Nagy going addition. Do you really get okay. This is just me. And i believe it with all my heart and soul. I would be starting. Justin feels this coming sunday against cincinnati at home. Now don't give being well you can make that case. Here's my point. I believe matt nagy knows. He's on borrowed time. He knows he's on the thinnest of is what's about to be an icy chicago and he's hoping that if you if you keep justin feels away from the fans for awhile. They'll say well deserves a shot when when finally justin gets to play. And maybe that's next. Okay here's what i am seeing. I respect andy. Dalton happy. I was to have him as my backup. Quarterback is the starting quarterback ahead of just fields. In what i see from andy dalton at this stage in age of his career is he won't do anything stupid and he won't do anything great right. That's the problem with him. He won't get you beat but he won't be the opposition to measure this. Do you believe of justin field. Started sunday night. They beat the rams they hang in better and actually it was two fourteen at one point. Thanks to a touchdown by guess who justin feels that. We could see what he did. I know this is just wanting played. Five snaps wrote. This is one running play. I just love the body language on this one because he was not afraid he just said see pay dirt hit pay dirt right and he hit it hard. He hit his little crease. There as hard as he could hit it. I love this kid's body language guest says i belong in you know him from the atlanta area. He's just been a star from the start. He was right there with trevor long. S and kennedy throw it like trump. Nowy cannot throw it the way. Trevor lawrence throws it but he can move and he's got guts as far as playmaking guts. He's just got that genie where he makes big plays and we saw the good in the the great and the bad at ohio state that year skip more times than not. Most coaches believed that a veteran gives them a better chance to win right now than the rookie. I think the rookie gives you a better chance. I think that team would play more. Inspired and less dead headed with justin instead. Of andy dalton. Was i just think that look. The defense made some mistakes. You can't you can't let cooper between yards. Obviously obviously so so. There's not a very good football team to start with. But sometimes acute will walk in and child chill lead you know in all of a sudden everybody says. Hey i love. The kids could spa. I love his guts that he displays because he'll try anything at any time and he made some big plays. I nearly got himself killed right but he also made some big plays. They had some splash plays. He had some big running play. Well that's what he would do. And andy dalton will do none of the above i. just don't i just don't want to say i understand how to fans clamoring clamoring for him because he did show some flashes during the preseason. I strong enough tough enough. Mentally would ruin him if he struggled. Better be right skipped because you miss what. You're bisky took a quarterback. What three years later in that you got just feel. You don't want to ruin hill. I didn't believe in trubisky but this kid. Yeah i don't. I don't believe i don't believe in trading was bought for four quarterback did could've said right there where you were and gotti definitely could you probably could've traded diving. The raiders won a wild game last night for the ravens. Thirty three to twenty seven and after a vegas pick in the end zone. And lamar jackson lost fumble. Their car was able to finally deliver the game winning touchdown to a wide open they jones after the game. How about this quote from jon gruden. I felt like i died and woke up and died again and i was like a cat. I had multiple lives tonight. Very good. ask shannon will gruden's raiders. Make the playoffs. No the more likely than not probably finished third or fourth in the west. I think i think. I think the broncos really had and i'm not just saying that because i played with the broncos but i think they have a really really good team defensively. They're really good with job. In bonn miller and show behalf in the back with justin simmons and green jackson. They have an fuller. They have a very very good team. If teddy bridgewater can take care of the football. Kansas city goes without saying kansas kansas city. The charges i believe going to be better than what people think they're going to be. I hope not Probably to show you well. It's not what you said earlier. They don't update is now anyways. Get look the browsed pills cheese. The next game. I'll do like this next three game at pittsburgh home against the dolphins at the charges. They better hope they find hundred. There'll be four games. I bet a home. Because they're not they're not they're not going to beat the chiefs this year and the broncos going to get them so they're not making the playoffs. You're not much of a gruden fan. And i say that unlike underestimate not a gruden fan i am. I covered him his first. Go round when he was with the raiders and they got tuck ruled and that was a really good team that i don't know well might have gone on to win that super bowl jon. Gruden creates incredible force field around a football team but he needs a gm who will hand him very good talent than he can make great right because he can inspire at the highest level. But you gotta give him some real tally in tampa Yeah like that. Or like the talent bruce allen and al davis handing in a one year when they got tuck rule because rich gannon would go on the next year but we meet them down in two thousand two. Did you were wondering what's that we'd be okay. I got it. But that that team and o-on had tim brown and jerry rise and charles woodson and Lincoln kennedy who was a pro bowl or an eric allen my firm. Espn okay so so. He's had to really good teams because our friend. Derrick brooks obviously captain the next team with john lynch and we can just go in siemian. Lord have mercy. You know they're just loaded in. It's one of the all time great defenses. There thinks it's the all-time grave events. But but john if you give him that. His his spark his energy his chucky personality will take it up to the next level well. I'm not sure what mike mayock is done for him. Because i saw an anonymous quote from an agent in the athletic Survey that they did a couple of weeks. Back in the quote was talking about worst off season moves. And he said of of the raiders. I don't understand the moves they made. It's like they're trying to do what they're not supposed to do. And drafts trae right. Which i often think in it comes across said the agent as fantasy football will might make was a very good sort of draft analyst on nfl network. I'll give him that but all suddenly you're playing with real bullets. Yeah you're struggling and you're reaching and you're flailing and sometimes i don't know what they're doing to bid on the number four pick in the draft in two thousand nineteen clean fire will help is grant inactive last night i it's best for picking the drought. That's a big swing and of okay. So in the end they're gonna go as far as derek carr can take them in. It's hard to take jon gruden when you're a quarterback. Because who did he win with. He won with the rich gannon. Who was old enough and wise enough. Just say john stop it right like i got then go to brad johnson. The tony dungy team that he inherited inbred johnson had been there and done all that and said no right. John put a sock in it. I need in other words saying he needs a very veteran ballclub. All those ballclub. Were very very bettering. You look at tampa broke in sap semi rice and lynch and rondi barbara had been there keyshawn johnson and keenan. Mccardell brad johnson. They had been there. Yeah so and you look at the rate of team. There were very very bitter right. John is i said this. Is the highest compliment form. He is a great front runner but he needs some front to run right to give him get out and they have to be proven hits in the driver. You're like oh good. Boom we got this so look like they were rushing the passer a little better last night and they're carplay. I thought the greatest game career under the circumstances opening allegiant fans and monday night football the waiver. I understand why pittsburgh. Because if he's playing like that at right tackle he had no business. That left tackle that we. Because i was my concern with the steelers going in like okay. You see how bad they were offensive line last year. How getting better now. Sometimes you get better bass attraction. Okay i got it so to me. You can throw into one hat that you're denver broncos and the chargers. My cowboys are about to face and raiders. I think you could throw him in a hat and one of those three. We'll make the playoffs. We make it. I think the raiders will. I just liked what i saw some do it. I won't buy faith. I don't care enough about care enough about five case cases so who you like better. Derek carr or teddy bridgewater lightheaded bicycle. Do did it by single word. He through the luckiest four touchdown pass. I think i've ever seen. Nobody tried to tackle it. Gets what don't be out too that you. I'll tell you remember what happened last time we were here. We'd beach room. Came to leave your back yard and you've got all upset it day by day. Maybe a whisperings. I was in here. Braun has been on a mission offseason with early warning workouts. His latest viral video was gym getting hyped to some music playing in the background shannon. How impressive is this imprinted. Desio forty five on the saturday morning by that time with me bron. I'm walking my dog around the block really you that all you got. We get that working. We worked so. Could you please explain to me because i cannot fathom lebron's obsession with constant they'd have to show everybody that we the ha isn't that what he's supposed to do. Isn't that what kevin durant does are you. Are you suggesting you work. Harder than kevin durant or kawhi leonard. Because i promise you they workout really what about what about tom brady where he posted running on the beach with band up and you were here in montana why he posted. He suggested he worked harder than patrick mahomes. He's forty four super bowls and he's about to win a zubi rocket journey. But you always throwing. His age could have a key cabinet. Forty five in the back same time tomorrow. The hurt is on now. Have a good one.
