"Welcome back gave Samper inside the numbers from New York lottery take a break from the expected place branch of games from the New York lottery jazz shall it be throws two touchdown passes are no he had two against Branco so now he's responsible for two or more touchdowns rushing and or pass in seven straight games the longest current streak by an NFL quarterback all right welcome back Hey we're talking to you about this game Thursday the bills and the Dallas Cowboys I will not be here tomorrow traveling to Dallas along with the team you'll have a medical lab hosting with you tomorrow on the show wrapped menu beyond that we'll chit chat while you're but it's in the NFL nine percent say the cowboys defensive a defense especially their pass rush four percent have something else in mind we got time for a couple of phone calls here let's go to Jean in New Jersey go ahead gene you're on the air yes thanks for taking my call gentleman I think the real key this game is that or one of the big issues would be bill silently that their best game of the season on Thursday the cowboys have very active linebacking corps and of course the wind back the tied and will be in the middle of most of that so therefore Dawson knocks can afford to have any drops in the Smith can afford to have any untimely penalties also if you guys haven't had read this or not but since strong McDermott circle the building twenty seventeen there's a lot of legal forty three touchdown passes yeah in the season they only allow seven passing touchdowns that's always the patriots have fewer and if you think about that that's really an amazing stat based on you know how bad our offense was last year and how many bad spots that the fence was put in terms of field position in that game yes I mean they were good pass defense last year too you know they were the third ranked defense I don't I can look at I don't know what the pass defense ranking was last year but they were good last year too and it's we know what the string to the bills defense is right gene the back end the safeties and and the corners now today because especially and now they got a good pass rush going on their top ten an impasse Russian in the league a lot of sex in a couple of games it's all coming together for them in that department yeah warm there been there pretty consistent too I mean that you've you've had a couple of games where they've allowed a little more rushing yards here and there but they they have yet to lay in a and if the Philly game you can point to and say they give up some points that's where the running game was really really showed itself but for the most part this is been a team has been solid as a rock over there and that's been you know you never know going into the game how it's going to turn out but certainly that's been one of the things this team's leaned on and I think it almost to the point a particular game like last week I think it almost comes to a point where you can tell the coaches make different decisions in their game decisions know when they've got that defense to lean on they can go a little more conservative offensively play a field position game knowing their defense you given up what three points are and so and move the three point you gave up was because of pick so it that they do I think it's so good it affects the game strategy for your own team so I think there's that as well you have some else gene McGee's gone let's go to Tony in his car hello Tony working on the show new guys all want great position were not be able to survive tell us a huge pleaded that he thanks I'm telling you because it's like you know Jerry Jones called out the coach is called out you know he says they would they got the players but at the come together over there but I'm telling you what to send them back a few years away from their Super Bowl re hopes to get back I mean one the perfect spot just in this this ticket to all men I think if the bills play mistake free football they they remain discipline the last one two games for personal mistakes have been down hill that I will be is that you can control you know a a and if they continue to grow all the way they spend the last three four weeks I just this could be a huge thing program yeah this I think this victory would do a lot for the Buffalo Bills it'll give you know first of all that more people are going to be able to get a load of what this team is about how they play what it means you know and what they look like a lot of people have never seen this team play this season I'm talking about the bills and I think it is I mean this is a this Dallas team the reason they're having problems in Dallas in the reason there's some dissension down there and a little bit of turmoil down there is because they've got a bunch of really talented gifted players and that's what the bills are gonna play is those guys and we've seen it here before where you go in if if you've got that kind of players if they can switch it to find the light switch and turned it on they can embarrass you pretty quickly and that's what the bills have to guard against like you said I think mistake free football is the key for the bills but you also got it let's say in a game like this you got to make some plays so you got to kind of throw caution to the wind once in awhile as well and he got a guy like Josh out with you got guys on the outside like John Brown Cole Beasley you've got it continue to keep your foot on the gas if you get an edge in this game because you're gonna have to make some plays to be a really talented roster like this let's go to the tree cheated is brought to you by Corrigan moving systems the official movers of the buffalo bills the bills biggest challenge when they match up with the cowboys on Thursday James tweets and honestly I think it's ourselves we can beat this team if we play our ball we are trending up gaining momentum at the right time of the year we are winning this game twenty four seventeen go bills like it I I I I I kind of agree with the I see a trend up and look I know it's only the the dolphins it's only the Broncos three and seven and whatever the dolphins were what were the two one and two million one two in a row but the thought the bills got better in those two games Steve they got better against NFL low level and if caliber competition step up this week I get that but I think they're confident and I think they're playing better and if found not complete answers but some answers on offense over the last couple games yeah I I agree I think they have improved now certainly you're gonna look better against weaker opponents are teams that they're good on one side of the ball and not on the other certainly the bills offense got I think they made some strides that was a good defense they played in against Denver there to number four defense the National Football League that's right about where the bills were last year and once again the bills got better offensively they ran the ball for two hundred and forty four yards against the Broncos defense that's pretty good so yeah you got to think that the bills are getting better in a lot of areas where they get the credit for not will depend on you know which games they went down the stretch here but I agree with you more if I think they've gotten better certainly they've they've benefited from a soft schedule but they won games continue to improve and they seem to be getting better at this last five weeks is at the right time it is the right time our Twitter I pulled today the bill's biggest challenge for the cowboys want to read the second one there by Joe billers Zeke is the biggest challenge with the cowboys by a lot you can't over commit to stopping him either they're just gonna have to should be sharp up front on offense the challenge to show up to a big time game they've been doing fine but I don't quite trust that side of the ball yet despite how good they have been that's that's kind of such probably sums it up for a lot of bills fans yep they like were the offenses what they've shown what they've seen but this is a step up in class from the last two games it is in the month dolphins and the and the Broncos the the cowboys are different animal and the next two tweets I think I I agree with this Michael tweets in the biggest challenge for the bills with the cowboys Michael says the offense of line hands down and Nicki kind of an accompanying tweet says I've got to go with Elliott is the biggest problem if we cannot contain him we might see a repeat of the eagles game deck in the receivers are a threat to but I'm more confident with their past events right now then if our office can produce and avoid penalties I say we went I get it I hear it yeah I think it is look I I I'm watching cowboys last night I watch more tonight and Zeke Ezekiel Elliott is really good and obviously we know that Amari Cooper's good and deck is pretty good the quarterback but it's really it's our offense of line that's the engineers really yeah they're offense of line is massive NZ Kelly it is one of those running backs you see everyone's well he does not avoid contact and one of those old sayings is well this guy gets better in the fourth quarter and we said on the show a bunch one of the reasons running backs like Z. Kelly get better in the fourth quarter guys particularly gets the second level smaller guys just get sick of hitting him and he getting hit by him you just can you start to flinch a little bit you start to he doesn't avoid contact never voice contact when you see him coming through you're going to have to hit him and hit him hard accept his challenge he never ceases to bring the head to the defender and that wears a team out particular when he's got a massive offense of line given him of a head of steam before you ever sees contact yep Hey what more do we have to talk about this in this came up during the course of our show the pro football fame is out with its list of twenty five semi finalists for induction into the pro football of fame there are a couple of new names there try Polemon a Reggie Wayne Patrick Willis couple of others who have been freed previously eligible but first time a semi finalist Carl banks Fred Taylor Ricky waters Brian young and one of those on the list has been on this is before twenty five hall of fame semi finalists Steve Tasker sit right next to me here is a semi finalist seventh time Steve is been a semi finalist first time since two thousand thirteen seven years after his last appearance as a semi finalist Steve is a semi finalist again we talked about this in the first hour of the show congradulations very cool yeah that's very cool yes it's an honor no question yeah this is fun they'll be reduced to fifteen finalists on January second and then the the full selection Saturday comes a day before the Super Bowl February first we've had a lot of action on Twitter Steve reaction to this and we get to a a different to cheat the Tasker reaction to cheat from Eric celebrate says champagne for the one bills I've grew Steve ever gets what he deserves you better be elected Steve sounds like a threat yeah right sounds like a threat woman remember you want nine Jose number eighty nine hall of fame finalists no one more deserving than you Steve Tasker from Bob I'll be in canton for the party of all parties you know Steve if you do get.

"Dutch from from the underground and also just note that they think he's going to get about twenty five. Maybe thirty touches starting at least the first couple of games or what not trying to get back into the picture. If you have zeke ezekiel elliott on your team and you know must have come in a very high first or second round at the latest. What's your thoughts as far as playing him. Do you play him right away. Do you have have no choice. I mean if you picked zeke. You elliott most likely you don't have that greater depth that running back after him so most likely you gotta go ahead even with with the limited amount of touches you gotta go ahead and play him correct. Yeah you hit the nail on the head. I mean at that point unless you really play in a a smaller league or people were asleep at the wheel on the second and third round of your draft. You're forced to start him. You know he's playing whether he's in shape or not. I don't know he claims to be working out in kabul but you have to. I think kinda kinda to the other factor involved here is the giants don't have the most stout defence who knows maybe they spell elliott a few times and he gets them. Goal-line looks and he gets you a touchdown so so at this point. It's kind of looking at it like a real team. You're paid the guy the top bucks in this case a first round draft pick play him roll the dice spin fewer going up against a <hes> the chicago bears or maybe the rams defense. Maybe you kinda give it thought but not this week stardom and like i said hope he gets you one of those cheap b._t.'s or maybe a few catches and receiving yards hopefully that'll be the case to make the best of very messy situation i should say and and hopefully for zeke elliott fans and also fantasy football team owners that have as you go elliot on their team. Hopefully it will still manage to be a good season. I don't know how great it will be because then you get into a situation where those players with those long holdouts. They have a tendency to get injured. The percentages seemed to go up for them to get injured as being more likely so i've been kind of worried and hopeful that i have enough depth on my running back roster absolutely that's it's an excellent way of putting it and frankly in this game. We love and play running backs. Get her all the time. It's just hard to predict whether holdout or not you're gonna have a fluke injuries so i say take take it week by week and worry about it down the road but it's definitely a good way of looking at it my friend. It's been a great episode. I gotta have you on real soon. After the the dust is settled on week one of the n._f._l. United still workout times as far as when you're available to do so but you are definitely going to be a major part of insight sports fantasy issue football going forward. I gotta ask you my friend before we had on out and that is what do you and charles smith junior the host that both you are of of the insights board show what you to scheming up for this season of insight sports all thanks again for the opportunity. I'm looking forward to a great season in doing this. Show a lot of friends and even co workers giving good feedback and even asked me when the first episode was and i told them after i finished my draft but that's i guess a little more like insider information nation but on the show are actually doing a bit of a reboot to the most popular segments we we've had gotten feedback from the audience on our our pick segment and fantasy football also i'll probably be giving some more of my nuggets whether it's who to pick up to drop who to start those sorts of things and then charles and i started a few years ago where we had a segment called gamblers blurs the late and thanks to the supreme court in my home state of new jersey gambling's not as evil as everyone makes it out to be as you know the fine state of nevada so we had a scene team charles was he picking over under and being the contrary and i am at times i would pick an underdog a really good year last year..

"You know the house of unamerican activities committee. It's reference <music> reference. The house about american activity committee and fucking farve was reagan rogers's obama and things that people don't like about rogers and they let those those things faster but he is clearly. The smartest guy and trump is clearly the smartest guy on any roster and i'm fucking. I just hope hope that he just goes. He's too smart for football and she likes problem. That's not he. He goes through it. He goes rogers would never retire before the season and now unless jordy nelson asked him to walk through this shirt jordi all right. Let's so i'll say rogers is going to be n._f._u. Mode this year big time. I'll say this right now that the division on the last the win the division price for them to change twenty dollars plus twenty five yeah to put it so put down one hundred sketch. Let's think they love the bears. There bears defense defenses that good. When is the last time aaron. Rodgers wasn't even being mentioned in the conversation of best quarterbacks. Now it's weird. I know i took them early problem. I think it's hilarious he still had i mean even last year being a down year for rogers. He's still had seven point four yards per attempt right like that's by. I any accounts that's all you got to be on the field a lot more and what is the for the florida so he also quietly and i didn't even know this brought it up again. Twenty five and two those are nick foles number twenty two touchdowns touchdowns interceptions only threw two interceptions and you still had a put your defense. It does scream scheme. Where does it come from the shanahan mcveigh play action use the play action. This go round jones the the more i think i really like it all right. Let's go through the way jimmy graham wasn't drafted in a single fantasy draft in the entire contract. You want a bold prediction. He finishes at the top top ten. I'm saying that's why they also drafted the kid in the third round at chicago on thursday night where shawna marie down plus three and a half for the packers minnesota <music> at home denver at home philly at home on a thursday night wanna start to the schedule four no baby wow i think they could start hot but i'll say there's one game in there. I could see them liz l. say three and one i'll say three and one i think they lose the <unk> at dallas detroit at home on monday night oakland at home at kansas city. I think they dropped up the kansas city game. I think ran one drop. The dow came to and to go to. I'm way too high. Rogers does does wanna own cowboys yeah he does. We wanna go three and one. I'll i'll go i although i like the cowboys but i'm saying three and one because as zeke ezekiel elliott's contracts that the house joe book feel about that i took at chargers orders straight cash just just a reminder. I mean you probably know where that's coming from but that was <hes> rainy. Most for tanzania liam moons the crowd imagine a time dick yetlis bucket. That was a gross act imagine that the president could do that tomorrow and it wouldn't even be ah chargers carolina by week at job. Oh could still vote for at san francisco at new york giants. This is the tougher stretch. Wait wait say that again. Sorry oh wait. I just told you too many games. I think <hes> chargers allina yep so at chargers carolina by week at san francisco at at new york giants head down to watch the game in l._a. We'll talk about about season. Tickets is a secretly great place to watch by the way if anybody's trying to buy broncos colts texans or raiders tickets you hit up nake at a twitter stream is album on spotify and and also buys tickets. Raiders won't have any trouble moving..

"One. You can just feel real football getting closer college football this weekend n._f._l. This week three okay so you'll have teams starters playing the entire first-half. Joy taylor is joining me. I can feel it today. I can feel found meals. We're getting we're inching closer her coming bursting through the gates onto the field for real football over here 'cause week three is really when you get to see mostly what you'll start to see the first week of the season so i i was c._n._n. Story yesterday where adam gates of the jet said our guy should expect to play at least one series in the third quarter so here here. We are so jerry jones. Let's start with this jerry. Jones is very shrewd and is very calculating. You know through the years jerry's reputation is a lot of ego and he's got plenty of it and a lot of vanity but when you can sit in a room with thirty one other billionaires and they listen to your advice. You're pretty smart the n._f._l. N._f._l. Owners listen to two guys bob kraft of the patriots and a lot of that is 'cause they win the most and then jerry jones of the cowboys who doesn't win that much and they listen to him. Jerry's very shrewd. He's a high risk taker. He is very calculated and he's got a ton of leverage so yesterday. What did jerry jones do because he wants to sign zeke ezekiel elliott and he's been going public with his son. Steven jobs tag team partnering now for three weeks six so yesterday. What does he do. He signs a player to a big contract but not any player jalen smith. One of the more likable players quiet has a great story overcame. An injury never misses a practice jerry could have signed anne of his players to a long term to you but instead he chose the one player who grew up as a cowboy fan the one player her who almost had his football career end the best story of the dallas cowboys the most beloved player his defensive signal caller didn't have to contract was up that was a message and then after he signed him and praised him for being the hardest worker. The best story corey an amazing person. Always supportive wants to be a cowboy could've done that with any player he could. He could assign zeke yesterday dak amari to he could tape player. He picked jalen smith and then. Did you notice what he said about available money now available there is his last pilots may know vons that you have as many high quality young players as we have. You have to allocate your resources wisely to keep and have all of those players you have to do that. Uh-huh that's called team building and i will assure you that this was about team boy. If you don't even have to reach for that stuff many good players team building not about the individual there was another bite jerry had yesterday and there was some animus jerry was angry and as shrewd and his calculated as jerry is he's human and he got angry when asked about the joke poking zeke and the ribs about you know who's zeke zeke was offended. Here's what jerry you said to that. I've earned the right was a joke league period. I've earned it still hello as any compensation. No let me be real clear about earned that right to joe. Why would jerry be angry. Oh i don't know because jerry trying to get the n._f._l. Commissioner fired for not defending zeke so jerry jones draft. Zeke zeke gets in trouble immediately. Jerry goes to the wall for him. The fans bail on him media people like me bail on him the n._f._l. Bails on him the commissioner bails on him and jerry goes to the wall for him and you pay. I am back going to mexico and two years out holding out and you don't think jerry's justified with with a little bit of his anger a little bit. I mean if i defended you. Your mom wouldn't your dad. Wouldn't your job wouldn't your boss. I wouldn't your industry wouldn't and i defended. You and i tried to get your boss fired..

"It's official why the officer Daniel Pantaleo is out of a job fired by NYPD commissioner James Neil is said that while garner was non compliant and the cops are given the latitude to use physical force during arrest bottle a used a banned so called in violation of department protocol course all stemming from the twenty fourteen arrest and death of Eric garner who was being arrested at the time for selling illegal cigarettes not illegal like marijuana just loose cigarettes you can't do that in New York more on that coming up crystal in today sharing the duties here San Antonio's first news Mister T. as a day off charity McCarty has a day off what do you say we talk about coop deck in Z. sounds like the three Stooges and the way things are going I guess you know is there a lot of similarities in case you missed it this weekend cowboys beat the rams fourteen ten pre season cat was running back Tony Pollard five carries forty two yards and a touchdown again pre season and then comes Zeke Ezekiel Elliott who still has two years left on a contract has been in Kabul is now back in Texas I don't think we'll see him today when the cowboys have practice but he is back in Texas and recently an interview with Jerry Cristiano was that after the rams game or was that at the practice facility was after the rams game at the stadium yes after the rams game a reporter asked Jerry about the negotiations or lack of better going on with Ezekiel Elliott to which Jerry turned his face towards the camera and said Z. coupe he was joking around yes trying to bring a little levity to the situation well apparently at least according to one of Zeke's many agents I didn't think it was funny and neither did Zeek we actually thought it was DS respectful are you kidding me let me tell you what disrespectful as getting arrested or do you do two three times at least I've lost count Jerry status back all these years for the stupid foolishness off the field and you want to talk about disrespect further you've got two years left on a contracting your say and I'm not going to work I want to know what you can't do that well that would be in pro sports you can do that I don't know what's going on you've also got Gackt who's got a year left on a on his contract but he showed up for work true Amari Cooper kind of a different situation because when the cowboys traded for him mid season last year with the open they knew he only had one year left on his current contract which is this year and I believe that that was an option mmhm now I haven't seen Cooper practice but we haven't heard anything yeah I think he is a heel Bruce that's why he hasn't practiced okay he's not holding out he's just been on unable to go your Jerry Jones you know for the most part generally speaking you got to sign all three you've got to get him under contract who's your priority well I I first take care of the guys who showed up for work who went to training camp that would be bad because they are because they showed up for one that's part of the equation okay dad are as good as your quarterback he's as you said he's got a year left Cooper as here left the six got to and he didn't show up I'm taking care of my quarterback the face of the franchise the guy who has been arrested three times the guy who's the leader and the adult and that's dak Prescott good observation I look at it a little differently he I guess who might be the face of the franchise but we all know that a professional football you can't throw if you can't run M. Pollard and Alfred Morris aren't gonna get the job done I thank you gotta take care of Zeke first this white band you know and I understand the Hey man you really show up when you're always in trouble that's why do I say here's a contract here's almost what you want but there's a little caviar in here that says you won't get any more trouble sign that well we know he won't sign at because those days are over I do believe I let me ask you do you think that the three will get done by the beginning of the regular season I think this standoff with Ezekiel Elliott could get ugly hi I'm I I mean I think this is a cowboys team that analysts say could go to a Superbowl so Jerry is highly motivated to get this done as is Stephen Jones his son but this is this is Kevin this is get a little they're they're playing a little chicken right here back and forth I think what are the only two preseason games left true yeah yeah I mean September the eight this point three weeks yeah wow well we'll see what happens by the way is the key is if he stays out of training camp and then does show up for game one here we find reportedly in the neighborhood of a million Bucks but if you're gonna get yourself a ten million dollar raise what's what's what's a million dollar.

"Jason mcintyre is one of my favorite segments every week but i okay the n._f._l. Preseason here we go it is quickly approaching coaching and zeke ezekiel elliott is still not in cowboy camp and i gotta tell you i really enjoying the cowboys off season drama. I i never knew that. Jerry jones and steven jones were pro wrestlers but they are tag team partners one day. It's jerry banging on zeke. The next next steven jones banging on d. Then it's jerry banging on zeke and steven jones begging on zeke. These guys are tag team partners w._w._e. Which by the way is coming to fox experi soon. Let me go to the first thing. Jerry came out. Remember that and jerry said you can win. Super bowls without star running backs and then stephen even came out and said couple days later you know any money we give zeke has just taken away from other cowboy stars and jerry came came out yesterday and said albert alfred morris the running back they signed has the best feel of any running back i've ever seen and then stephen came out out later in the day with rich eisen and said he won't call us back here stephen jones. How often are you talking with. Zeke's team these these very rarely. There's this perception out there about negotiations that you know there's these ongoing talks and go on hours at a time and you know that's just not the case a._c. Kinda set the boundaries of where you think it should be and certainly <hes> you know they're all represented by very sharp people and they're trying to do the best for their client line and you kind of sit there and you do on it and you think about it. You know you're always trying to take something that might bridge a gap. Okay so remember this. This is the latest thing it's a tag team partner jerry. You can win super bowls without great running backs steven. You're just taking money out of dagenham. Ariz hands jerry sorry yesterday. Alfred morris has the best feel of any running back i've ever seen and then stephen jones comes out later and says nobody's returning our calls. We're not close. Okay okay so this is tag team zeke. Are they getting nervous. Are they getting anxious. Now i've felt from the very beginning jerry. Stephen have been very shrewd with their public public comments but there is a reason they are going out in public. They are trying to put pressure on zeke. I think zeke has two things going for him here and they're the things that people think well. He's a great player. They need no. He's got two things going for him number. One jerry jones is seventy six years old..

"Kamerhe. We'll get a few more touches in a game and whenever he gets a few more touches i mean you saw that when ingram was out for four weeks last year. It not only was alvin. They're the number one running back over those first four weeks but he was the number one running back three of those first four weeks he was dominant. Who's on another level. He can certainly do that all right. Let's talk about zeke. Ezekiel elliott cowboys running back extraordinaire. Mike and jason baby both them at four. I got him at two who still last year in fifteen games three hundred four carries seventy seven reception i want i want zeke so so bad like he's my number one. I went broke will can we please get specific sound by carved out from social media thirsty. I'm just italian like that'll do look at all the arguments we've been making saquon. Oh keedy elliott saquon has the talent and the volume but he's on a bad team. Come mira has the talbot. He doesn't get the volume christian mccaffrey. Ah you know it's like zeke has all of it because he's finally a pass catcher last year. After mark cooper got there he was basically pacing with christian mccaffrey targets which is incredible and i think zeke is just the way that i said christian mccaffrey the best pass catching running back. I think zeke is the best pure running back in the n._f._l. It all comes together. I was so excited to make him my one on one. He's <hes> easily. I think the best pick in fantasy. If you play sixteen games just just employ slip long now that i mean that's a lot of work. Three hundred eighty one touches che's last year. Do i mean the team is raving about tony pollard dacca's raving about him. Is there a chance that if he's on the field pollard steal deal some of that illustrious target..

"Fades all straight talk Roger by straight talk wireless you know what I'm getting blown up in the hall hi it's not even Twitter like cliff I don't know a call I might is cliff include for some garlic where I don't know exactly why cleave kids here so we're really like I'm I'm fairly convinced by the way he just meanders around around throughout the day that he can get here five minutes before the show get more sleep because he needs it he's very upset we did our top five wide receiver rankings I gave you Adam feeling a number five Julio Jones and forty Andre Hopkins it three Michael Thomas it to Antonio brown one and that that by the way that's on there's only five players on my top five list as opposed to some people cough Terry there there there's only five players on my list I that's as far down as I went and there's been a little bit there's a heated debate because but I'm feeling and at number five I knew that would be a little bit of a controversy one I would argue by the way as clippers are to come in and said dude he's not even in one wide receiver they just the Vikings to sign him to a four year sixty four million dollar extension it's a heck of a lot of money to pay somebody that they don't be was a number one wide receiver and just because he's he lines up with Stefon Diggs as a teammate let's also remember I don't know Odell Beckham junior is going to line up with Jarvis Landry is a teammate and that's really why for anybody that wants to come in because last week I got so I got brown's hate all over the place because I love Baker may feel off the list and I'm I'm mention the name Derek Carr that's all it was saved their garden actually make my top five my people tweeting me about my favoritism yes and Tony around is number one on my list but that's because in the past the way wide receivers been used by Jay Gruden R. J. grin sorry John by Jon Gruden I think that's going to continue to show showcase itself with Antonio brown plus ultimately when you look at with the Browns there are a lot of miles to feet and it's not just to the wide receiver position there are just miles all over the phone all over the field to feed I think that's gonna make a difference so then if I'm gonna have to bet on somebody as a top five it's going to be somebody that's in year two of a system is Kirk cousins is I'm gonna bent on somebody that entire group is played together for another another year under the same system with the same coaches so you know there's no disrespect Odell Beckham junior who I think is going to have a spectacular year he just didn't make my make my top five list I'm just saying that is straight talk straight talk wireless everything for less only at Walmart you can chime in at Jason fits I can take the hate remember I was a fat kid to play the violin there's nothing you can say to me that's worse than six grade girls okay so in in the sense of wide receivers while we're talking about a Michael Thomas was number two on my list he's number one in the NFL in a very important category and that's why you see was getting it is yesterday he signed a five year deal I was at a college football seminar yesterday in Charlotte with a get everybody that works in college football around ESPN in one room and all of a sudden you just saw everybody sitting around me like the little whispers like a kids of the if the lunch table in high school and so what is everybody whispering about and then the ESPN notification pushed it to all of us five years ninety six million dollars could push to a hundred million dollars sixty one million dollars of that is guaranteed we knew that Michael Thomas will become the highest paid wide receiver we knew that he wanted the opportunity to make that a number that was in the twenties and he has an opportunity it wouldn't be easy for him to get those incentives but he does have the opportunity now all of a sudden there's a trickle down effect and it's it's severe at the wide receiver position because Julio Jones was also on our list and I'm sure we'll be entrees list coming up on goal coming on a little bit Julio Jones is already told us he's not playing in the preseason it isn't a preseason if I'm only Jones and I'm looking over at the deal that was just signed by Michael Thomas I am is static like I am text to my mom my dad I'm like everybody I'm testing everybody I know what I'm saying look I knew I was going to get paid I do know is gonna get Hey because Damien woody ESPN NFL analyst said it best let's remember that Michael Thomas is deal today is mind blowing and its record setting but what is it in the future Damien summed it up best of school the floor is now Michael Thomas view room Joan you know will play the pre season in your lawn you know one domino has fallen with Michael Thomas then you will see with a more coop was going to commit any who it's also mostly back when it's all said and done and will say okay guys shouldn't contract that's the floor okay I need that's where the negotiations start remember that because we talk about it all the time at the quarterback position specifically we talk about it all the time that whatever deal you see today is going to be antiquated in three years that's why you sign your quarterback as soon as you possibly can that that in my mind get ahead of it because then when you're done with that you know you got you got just getting paid ripped a bandaid off and let it normalize because as deals continue to go they always set a new floor the new floor for the best wide receiver in the NFL is going to be twenty million dollars a year Julio Jones is walking in and saying if you're offered to me doesn't start with that too don't even call me into the office and he's right like that's a staggering part about it he's right to say man if that number doesn't start with a two per year if we're not twenty plus don't even call me into the facility in if I'm Amari Cooper I'm looking over there were rumblings in Oakland then Amari Cooper wanted to be one of the top paid wide receivers in the NFL I don't ever blame a guy for wanting that remember if your deal is gonna be the new floor and it's gonna be eclipsed quickly did you always want to be the top that the top guy if you signed a deal today that makes you the eighth or ninth highest price paid wide receiver in three years you can be the twentieth paid you don't want that so more Cooper's looking over in San okay if we're talking about nineteen point two million what's that mean amare one seventeen eighteen if you wanna coming right around that same number I would and that's why Stephen Jones is already coming out I mean Stephen Jones is already had to come out and it's amazing how the tone changes as we start to see contracts come through because the tone earlier from the cowboys but don't worry we're gonna get everybody pay Jerry Jones is adept we have sounds of players not going to be an issue now what do we get Stephen Jones is on thirteen ten the ticket yesterday and said that they're not going to let any of their deals with Zeke Jack or Amari be eight and this is the quote market setter now we talk all the time about what coaches mean when they speak in front of a microphone to the press who they really talking to a lot of times they're talking to players trying to get a message out to their locker room this is Stephen Jones specifically getting a message out to mark Cooper's agent we're not going to set the market that number is not going to start with the two so what's going to start with I mean these negotiations are going to get easier Zach Zeke I'm a combining docking Zico you're welcome America Zeke he's hanging out now using combo waiting for a deal to get done I'm sure he's working his tail off but he's out there waiting for a deal to get done he thinks he doesn't intend to be a market center you're fooling yourself Jax already told you straight out I think I should be the highest paid at exit should get paid I think everybody should get paid you think Jack is walking and they can all right I'm I'm more twenty two or twenty three million dollars a year that's good no because even if we all agree that that number should be at let's say twenty five million dollars we also have to be smart enough to agree that the markets about to be set at around thirty I can't find any reason why dak Prescott today would take a deal that puts him in a market that would be antiquated in three years that doesn't make any sense from quarterback standpoint and it doesn't matter what we think of the production this isn't about how good deck is this is about supplying the main that's everything Chris Mortensen broken down ESPN NFL reporter broke down the specifics I'm with the cowboys need to do when specifically talking about Stephen Jones and his comments about setting the market I think in a way it's been a compliment to the personnel chief Wilma clay did they put together pretty darn good roster yeah in the done a lot of this work in last few years were also we got a lot of guys we've got to pay Amari Cooper I would set him aside he's going to make like forty million dollars a year this year up forty million dollars this year he's in no nothing urgent nothing imminent about that no by the way in Texas now no state taxes in California all that money was come out role which I tell my dad Prescott and Zeke Ezekiel Elliott I think he was the manager roster that Byron Jones coming up do as well and I would say that that probably gets done before Zeke but he will not as he said said the market too high because of all the other players they have the at sign that's Chris Mortensen talking about set the market its first and last time Jayson fits I mean the thing about that he's right Hey wait on Amari makes so much sense but the more these numbers they get done the more wide receivers think about the list we've given you this morning I give you my top five am feeling Julio Jones de Andre Hopkins Michael Thomas Antoni around those were all of my top five Antonio brown went out got himself paid this offseason Michael Thomas goes out yesterday gets himself paid Julio Jones is about to get himself paid if you're the cowboys yeah patience is great patience is spectacular that's a great mind said to have but if you're also the cowboys the one thing you're banking on this year is it you're about to put up and incredible offense with Kelly Moore's you new offense of coordinator you're about to do things they're gonna make everybody transcend to new heights and if you believe that is the actual truth you can't wait on Amari Cooper because the value of Amari Cooper V. goes out this year and becomes the biggest quarterback I'm sorry the biggest wide receiver in the NFL if Omar goes out becomes the biggest wide receiver in the NFL his number it's not just gonna start with it too it's not gonna be low twenties these numbers going up at astronomical rates and the cowboys are in a situation where doc wants to get paid he's going to Zeke wants to get paid and he's going to and every single contract the bombs of the value of wide receivers gonna make it tougher for Amari Cooper to get done first and last coming up the Major League Baseball trade deadline has come and gone in New York as a city did nothing tell you why it is not much of a shock for one of the teams this is first and last time Jayson fits on ESPN radio and ESPN at everyone's looking for pitching sack grantee is headed to the Houston Astros they have a team that can win it all this year just adds to the fuel of what the Houston Astros far more first and last next.

"Oh, sorry. Tom Brady, you have been dwarfed by the NFL Facebook page. I had no idea. Do you guys? Follow the NFL on Facebook. I do not wait does our show page. Follow the NFL on Facebook. Anyone it does not crickets? So the NFL has seventeen million. That's insane. Seventeen million followers on Facebook. Brady has a quarter of that for. That is probably why you only have four point four only four point four million followers on Facebook. Please check Giselle. I have to know who is more Tom Brady or his wife Giselle bunched. It's interesting. I mean, it's not that interesting. But it's interesting on the same level as Zeke Ezekiel Elliott versus DJ. Franson is interesting notes. Oh, six million for Giselle snap. All right. It's after hours here on CBS sports radio. Let's get serious showy. So Ben Watson who is retiring from football. And in fact with the saints missing out on the Super Bowl. He's officially done unless something drastic changes. But the saints tight end actually sent a social media post to the Commissioner himself. This is not where I got the idea. I swear I thought it might be who've made to send my column to Roger Goodell before I saw this. But. I'll bet Ben Watson gets more attention from the Commissioner. He writes Commissioner Goodell. We all realize that football is an imperfect game played coached and officiated by imperfect people what occurred last Sunday in New Orleans, though was outside of that expected and accepted. Norm. Your continued. Silence on this matter is unbecoming of the position you hold detrimental to the integrity of the game and disrespectful and dismissive to football fans everywhere from the locker room to Park Avenue accountability is what makes our league great lead, by example. And then it goes on. And it's only been like fifty seven thousand times on Twitter, and it's only been re tweeted eighteen thousand times holy cow. I can't even imagine what my Twitter account would look like after that. But anyway, he goes on. And he has a few more words in there. But he writes directly to Roger Goodell not about the call. Which I appreciate maybe at first blush. You would think that's what any saints player would be writing for. But that's not why he wrote he wrote because Roger Goodell and the NFL have said nothing. Zip zilch, not a word, and we knew this back to Sunday. You may remember and it, but if you weren't listening to the show on Sunday night, I said the NFL is not planning to make a statement. The reports are already out that the NFL is not going to say a word about this. Call. The idea is was is I guess still in operation still in effect. That our river phone call with Sean Payton is supposed to serve as the admission. That the flag should have been thrown. Now, do we all know the flag should have been thrown when Nicole Roby Coleman plowed through Tommy Lee Lewis? Of course, we do. Really the only question that we don't have answered. Is how the call was missed honestly. And I've given you some theories. But it doesn't really matter that that's neither here nor there. The fact is it was a blown call with a championship game hanging in the balance. And I mentioned this in my column to which is why I was pleased to see that Ben Watson wrote to the Commissioner. Because even though our river on who's the NFL's head of officiating. Talk to Sean Payton. Moments after the saints lost. And according to Sean Payton river, odds message was the crew Blewett da. But okay, at least Sean Payton heard it from the guy who's in charge of the officials. But since that time complete and utter silence. From the league itself. We didn't even get a good evening. From Roger Goodell. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. Now. And I've said this multiple times on the show, and I also wrote about it. So I'm consistent in this. And I think Ben Watson is saying the same thing. There's no changing it. There's no going back. And in fact, for those of you who think the NFL rulebook allows for that. I'll tell you in a second white absolutely does not that was maybe a shred of hope, but it was false hope because it's it's not in the rule book the way that it was made out to be anyway back to the apology. The statement that the Commissioner might issue the statement that the league even if it's not Roger Goodell, even if it's one of his henchmen, even if it's somebody else in the league office, even if it just says signed the NFL, it doesn't reverse anything. It can't change it nor should the NFL step in and change it. But to acknowledge that a mistake was made to me. Is a step toward integrity. And we heard that word from saints owner gale Benson. It's also about transparency. Yes. You know, we missed the call. We know we miss the call. We're going to own up to it. So there's absolutely no question. That you know, that we know that you know, that we know we miss the goal. Probably not what Roger Goodell would say. To the officiating crew with that'd be awesome. Or maybe maybe here's a good idea. You guys the NFL could said DJ friends and to deliver the message about the officiating crew. All right. It was just one call. It was a big call. But still for for for the for the most part, the officials do well still. I just think DJ Franson is the type of melodrama that my show needs every now and then. It would have been. I think the right call for the NFL to show some integrity to show them transparency. And even though I'm not saying that one letter one tweet. One Facebook post. Can build a relationship of trust. However, as you can hear from Ben Watson as you can imagine if you were in that situation. Yes. The trust is damaged. But don't we all appreciate apologies for for the most part? I mean, sometimes we're too angry. And we don't want to let it go at the time. But an apology goes a long way. Even if you already know that I know that you know, that I know that you're sorry. An apology matters. And in this particular case, the NFL could have also taken a step toward building. Trust. Or repairing trust with the saints as well as with the fans. And we talked about this on Sunday night. It doesn't make you feel any better in the heat of the moment. But I agree with Ben I agree that it's still as painful as it might be for the NFL to admit that there was this. Awful blight. In one of the most important games of the year. It's still a necessary step why? Because that's what you do when you screw up. You admit it adults are supposed to admit it when they screw up. Now granted the NFL doesn't always act like it's run by dolts. But this seems like a slam dunk to me. And yet somehow Roger Goodell. Clanged the ball off the back iron. Could you imagine? Roger Goodell to dunk that was kind of a mixed metaphor. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS sports radio. You can find me on Twitter a radio and thank you to those who not only read my column, but also responded both positively negatively now I think the name calling has stopped. I've been called a name anytime over the last forty eight hours. I think that at least the fear directed at the radio host, maybe has waned a bit. However, you're still disagreeing with me about the call. And that's fine. I'm good. Some of you disagreed with my idea for fixing what is broken system? That's okay, too. The idea is to have the conversation. The idea is to try to figure it out and to use all of our brain trust and brain power together to come up with some way. And the fact that Sean Payton's on the competition committee, doesn't that make you want to sit in on those meetings makes me want to sit in on those meetings. Arthur blank who is the owner of the Atlanta, Falcons course, they're hosting the. The Super Bowl this year. Which is really cool. I'm excited to get down. There. I've been to Atlanta variety of times, but have not been there, obviously for an event like this not a Super Bowl, but actually any other major sporting event, usually when I go it's for something entirely different. But he if you guys want to make sure we have that audio he was on CBS this morning, and he was asked about this phantom pass interference that wasn't called and about this idea potentially amending the replay and review system down the road team. President which McKay cheers the competition committee free NFL Commissioner last night. And I think it's an issue that, you know, the legal look at again, a committee will look out again as coaches and general managers and owners as well. So you know, whether or not to be a change. I'm not sure if I was saints fan. I would feel you know, just the way gale Benson their owner express. But I know the officials do a great job for us throughout the year. You have twenty two really big men moving really quickly, and it's easy to miss them things. And there's a lot of opportunities during the game to to actually to win the game. And this case saints weren't able to do so Arthur blank on CBS this morning. Were they level head which I appreciate. Hopefully since there are various voices from all over the NFL on this competition committee. They can come up with some type of plan. I like mine, but I'm okay with any kind of plan that allows for a mea culpa that allows for eight oops, there should have been a flag there. Let us fix that. Not a. Oh, wait. What what what? No. I don't know. What you're watching? Maybe you didn't put on your sunglasses. Oh, just your regular classes and unless their prescription, of course. All right. So on Twitter or on Facebook, some of you weighing in about the crazy thing you ever did on a dare. We are dumb when we're young aren't we? It's.

"Much for being here. I'm Jamie Markley that is David van camp while I'm not surprised by this story. I'm surprised he's still in the country. Well, apparently, former attorney general Jeff Sessions, Mr. Magoo as he may have been known inside the walls of the White House. You haven't retired that yet that poor guy. Mr magoo. No, I feel bad for for Mr. Magoo, which are still a few guys. Well, it's it's a branding thing. You know, you gotta. Unfortunately, you have more people might recognize who the guy is. If you go by the brand that the president's apparently gave him Mr. Magoo gay just seems disres- one of the few guys on talk radio who defended him. I understand, but she's still call them. Well, it's the branding thing. Again. Okay. So Jeff Sessions talked to politico he's doing an event. He's on his way to an event after George H W Bush funeral yesterday. So politico caught up with him and said, hey, are there's been some talk that you're going to run for your old Senate seat against Doug Jones in Alabama is that truly out of there. And they're like, hey Magoo. Right. Mr. Magoo, not a fan of this. So according to politico, it says, the former attorney general Alabama Senator said in an interview that he doesn't miss being a Senator and won't be deciding anytime soon about running said, I've be clearing my brain. I think that's a fair statement. I'll go to Alabama do some things, and then that will clarify a little more before I worry about making a statement. He also defended the current acting AG Matt Whitaker. Because of ties to shady companies and some of the statements he's made about Bob Muller at any rate. Yeah. I don't blame a guy like Jeff Sessions the dark side of Washington in a big way. Here's a dark side already. But he really side side of a bus hard because you had Democrats calling him a racism Keebler elf. And then you have the president saying great going, Jeff what's the deal with all these investigate? Why did you recuse yourself? Jeff. When you have your boss, calling you the beleaguered attorney general. Yeah, it's not a great place to be professionally. So he may want to. I'm sure what he's also doing is. There may be some polling going on to see what the opinion of him is in Alabama. Because is it? I mean, it it may be I know a lot of people have turned on Jeff Sessions. I wonder if the president's attacks have done irreparable harm to Mr. Magoo in his home state. I don't know. I don't I don't generally don't think. So. But I think that's probably what he's investigating before he ever decides to go back to Washington. Yeah. Because if he ran it his own state and then didn't win that's insult to injury. He may just want to hang it up. Yeah. I wouldn't blame him. If he did to be honest. Another story out there. We talked about going to NFL games before. Especially if you're going to see your favorite team on the road. Yeah. Be careful where you go. What you might run into Pittsburgh. This is at all timer. This is terrible. Yeah. The Steelers chargers game on Sunday night. Great game, by the way in Pittsburgh. Pregnant woman named Donna Brian was there with her husband Daniel, they've they're chargers fans. They went there from California. And one point a fan knocked the guy down and then chokes her again, she is six months pregnant, and they attacker it's caught on video from multiple angles. Yes. And I mean, it's it's totally disturbing to see this this fan just there decked out in chargers gear in this drunk. Pittsburgh is back on and she's got the gear on I hope the salient is drunk because otherwise I mean, there's I mean not that. It's an excuse not that it's like, oh, well you were drunk though. It's okay. That you took that pregnant woman. Not what I'm saying at all. Don't misunderstand. But at least then there's sort of a reason behind why you would act like such a monster. And you're just not a full-time jackwagon. Okay. I'll just let you keep growing down the lane. I know what you're saying. But still there's never right. But stone cold sober is so much worse than out of control drunk because you're not under the influence of anything. I get what you're saying. Absolutely. It's all bad. Yes. None of it's good. I'm just glad it's your name to that statement. That's fine. That's fine. I stand by it. So the couple spoke to know how the headline would be Don lemon. We're reporting the headline Don lemon reports that David van camp think it's okay to choke pregnant woman as long as you're drunk. Exactly. Not the statement. I'm making. Just got to watch out for that out of context stuff, man. Okay. So the couple spoke to action news for on your side in Pittsburgh about what went down video has gone viral did not pick up the initial attack where I was blindsided from benign, I do have very dark bruise on my bottom sheets in my left. But. I think is from being thrown into the the seeds. And then I have the bruises on my neck. None of these security guards. That were at the top of the stairs that we saw coming in or any people that were working with the stadium came down from that point on real, man. Look, I mean, I mean in fairness to the security guards. I mean, it was happening. When the chargers were on the game winning drive in the fourth quarter. They wanted to see the action. Of course, there's no excuse for either. No, nobody stepping in. That's ridiculous. Okay. What's the corporate speak from the Steelers Steelers organization put out a statement saying we strive to make events at Heinz field safe for our guests. This type of behavior seen in the photo is unacceptable and something we do not condone on our property. Well, congratulations, choking a pregnant woman. If it's no good. That's good. It's good stuff. I mean as far as the NFL is concerned, you know, you hit a woman, then that's fine. If she's pregnant you can't right now if that guy who did the choking was playing on the field. They would have had to have a full thorough internal investigation. No. That's not true. Jerry Jones would already signed him undoing the cowboy jokes for you right now. Maybe the Redskins would have signed him to now. So they say we are working with Heinz field security as well as local authorities to gather more information on this particular incident as the Pittsburgh police determines whether or not to press charges that really a hard call. Okay. This is the deal we're gonna find this guy, and we're pressing charges. Yes. Completely out of line. It's disgusting. Period. The end we will ensure those involved as the aggressors will not be permitted back into our stadium. Oh, man. The other great thing about this. What's that? Neither one of us are Steelers fans, and I got a whole bunch of friends and family that are. Well, look at America's team, America's dirtbags. Love taking the shot. Don't you? Listen, man, Calloway. All these guys. Absolutely. When you see the meltdown? Cowboys are in the news to know what? I see is this headline you handed me and Zeke Ezekiel Elliott do now running back who may have may have, you know, beat a girlfriend gives advice to NFL players accused of domestic violence. What does that mean? Hold a forum or something. No. And the headline is is kind of unfair to Ezekiel Elliott. Because well, they're talking about Kareem hunt and Reuben foster Kansas City. Chiefs released Kareem hunt after this video came out, you know, that story right because he kicked a woman in a hotel went public San Francisco forty Niners released Reuben foster after a second domestic violence arrest. Of course, the Washington Redskins. So yeah, we'll we'll take them. Which is just unbelievable to me. And so somebody asked Ezekiel Elliott about this. So he was suspended six games last year after next girlfriend accused him of abusing her. No criminal charges were filed in that. But we all know that story right now he was asked yesterday. So it's not like he's holding a forum in saying now, let me tell you all you guys who are accused of being wife or girlfriend beaters. Let me let me explain something to you. I give you is hip. He was asked the question as somebody who has faced these allegations as somebody who's dealt with allegations like this. What would be your advice to your colleagues? So then he comes out. And surprisingly, he doesn't say don't beat women because that should be number one that's life hack number one for everybody. If there's a woman in front of you and you're unhappy with her don't beat her. I'm trying to remember now, I don't know that he ever admitted it. Oh, I don't. I don't think. So because the woman in that case was stopped cooperating with prosecutors, right? Yeah. I stopped paying attention honestly like late last year, but up till then I think even now he's never admitted. So he came out with a so-called vague response. They said just focus on your day to day life. Make sure you're winning the next day. When you start looking down the road, you can get kind of bogged down just make sure you focus on the day to day and doing better day today and things are going to work themselves out. I would just add don't hit women. Yeah. It's pretty your job is either tackling somebody at a high rate of speed or running through a wall of a thousand pounds of man. Meet don't hit somebody who's two hundred pounds lighter than you are right. It's pretty simple. Yes. Well, thanks for bringing the Cowboys into that cash. Dang, say your voice Zeke man, he's doing pretty well this year. Just don't be stupid. You know, and I see. This whole thing with the Steelers. You know, that's disgusting that organizations gotta do the right thing. And find this person how hard could it be him? Then when you mentioned the Redskins that higher Reuben foster after what he did. Yeah. Listen, we've covered this stupid, Colin Kaepernick story to death. Okay. Yeah. But for Redskins fans in different people when you do hire this guy, and you're like, yeah. Cap won't fit in. We know that our two quarterbacks got broken legs. But forget it. That's not a great, look I and I'm not sitting here saying they should bring him in because he's not worth the hassle in my opinion. But that's a terrible look to bring talk. It's talking about priorities and bigger than just sports, but what are your priorities? It's okay to sign a guy who beats women, but and I don't agree with. Either. All but that guy's blackballed right now from blackballed from the NFL overall. But the Washington Redskins aren't gonna take a second. Look at him. I know I would just love for him to show up on the field for the Redskins. Just because that would be a mind blowing event that a guy who wants to protest for social Justice causes now on such an embattled team. Oh, yeah. It comes to even the mascot. Yes. Well, you know, what happened minds would be blown. He wouldn't be able to take a knee..

"Story surprised. He's still in the country. Well, apparently, former attorney general Jeff Sessions, Mr. Magoo as he may have been known inside the walls of the White House. You haven't retired yet that poor guy know, I feel bad for for Mr. Magoo, which are still guys. Well, it's it's a branding thing. You know, you gotta. Unfortunately, because more people might recognize who the guy is if you go by the brand of the president's apparently gave him Mr. Magoo. Just seems disrespect one of the few guys on talk radio who defended him. I understand, but she's still call them. Well, it's the branding thing. Again. Okay. So Jeff Sessions talked to politico he's doing an event while he's on his way to an event after George H W Bush funeral yesterday. So politico caught up with them and said, hey, there's been some talk that you're going to run for your old Senate seat against Doug Jones in Alabama. Is that true? Magoo? Right. Mr. Magoo, not a fan of this. So according to politico, it says, the former attorney general Alabama Senator said in an interview that he doesn't miss being Senator and won't be deciding anytime soon about running. I'd be clearing my brain. I think that's a fair statement. I'll go to Alabama do some things. And then that will clarify a little more before I worry about making a statement. He also defended the current acting AG Matt Whitaker. Because of ties to shady companies and some of the statements he's made about Bob Muller at any rate. Yeah. I don't blame at a guy like Jeff Sessions saw the dark side of Washington in a big way. Here's a dark side already. But he really side is on the underside of a bus hard because you had Democrats calling him a racism Keebler elf. And then you have the president saying great going, Jeff what's the deal with all these investigate? Why did you recuse yourself? Jeff. Spaniel?

"Better. Hope the change the launch line for touchy Kaga, minus four no way that would change that line. If chased Detroit, isn't it it's act to Detroit the current line. I'm seeing although it hasn't been updated since twelve there was some I thought it was questionable. I didn't think it was a definite thing it. I'm just telling you what Iraq is reporting. This is this is not the game that that that is uppermost on our radar right now. We you start to watch. In other words. You had the NFL. I think it's gonna be cold, especially I think I like Detroit football game. I think when you're playing at home at twelve thirty on a Thursday, you have a huge advantage. I mean what she got one day. She pleads the late Sunday night game and is try I know it's not much traveling. But their travel, right? Yes. He caused always at the worst disadvantage in terms of preparation, right? Roof is the worst of all time worst preparation disadvantage, and he'll tell you. It's cooked into the lives matter. It doesn't matter coming off that Sunday night game. Yeah. And having to travel and play play. It's not a long long flight. But it's still you gotta go like, you're not at home. You are in a guts to go. Breaking breaking news, Rufus has a very complicated. Excel spreadsheet open on his computer that right? Show. Why don't? This is terrific radio. It's great. It's good complicates much. Like we pick game. Let's pay algorithms. Let's go to Redskins. Cowboys redskins. Cowboys amazingly. The Cowboys are in it yet. Right. So bad. I believe have won twice in a row on the road. Believe they get home against the Redskins. They are the Redskins are six and four that's five and five this puts them type because the Redskins beat the earlier in the. I don't know what. By the time. It would be division record, which is TB and the Redskins are playing with Cole McCoy now. But lest you think that Cole McCoy is no good. Just let me remind you of this one thing Colt McCoy in state of Texas when he was the quarterback at the university of Texas when he left school after four years had won more games as a starting quarterback than anybody in d one history was later passed by the kid from Boise state. I think the kid from Boise state. He's still the leader at Texas. Oh, yeah. Okay. Sure. And he can win games in the state of Texas. I believe he beat the Cowboys. Once he did in Texas for the Washington Redskins. What do you think he used to be able to run too? I mean, he's thirty two now. Which is I mean, I like what he hasn't been hitting five year. Now he hasn't played in. I always touchdown favorite. I like the Redskins. I thought we were giving Chuck seven I feel like the I mean, I don't I don't see an appreciable difference. I mean, I know they're different style quarterbacks. But I don't see Gary's more of an expert on the Redskins. But I don't see an appreciable difference between Alex Smith installer. Hoy's taller. Little bigger. But I think you will see a difference. You're going to see more Redskins offense. Yeah. I mean, he he knows gruden's offense inside out. There's a lot of talk about Alex Smith and Gruden clicking Alex Smith and Jordan Reed, specifically not clicking as you saw on that long touchdown return and. I honestly think for this game. I'm not saying they're better with Cole McCoy, I'm not going there. But I'm just saying in this game. I think you may be surprised. Yeah. Are you of that sounds like I think against with the game? Right. So are your Cowboys at home having won two in a row? Dak Prescott Zeke Elliott, look good. The last two games with all of the storm and drawn around Jason Garrett who never gets fired no matter what Jerry Jones running the team the cowboy seem to have overcome. What I thought they stunk. So. Better. Well, the recipe is been a big dose of Zeke Ezekiel Elliott, doesn't it? Yeah. Monster games last two games. Yes. Different front seven though..

"I didn't feel totally hole. So it's great to have you this week for some fantasy conversation. I'm ready to go actually was two weeks ago. I was there last week. I was ready to go. And hopefully, I help people win their league. Oh, well, two weeks ago, and it still lingered so long. So let's get started with our guy. Lamar jackson. I even played at the college of my rival the Louisville cardinals. I I loved watch. Nikki, maybe the most fun college football player generation. And now today he gets the chance to start in the pros. How's he gonna do? And how do you look at him from a fantasy perspective is the ultimate risk reward. In a way. I mean, if you've gotten this far, and you're still playing for something you probably have a really good quarterback. So I wouldn't tell you to play him over like, Andrew luck or Ben Rothlisberger. Or Ryan Fitzpatrick their death line. That's one of the line for me like Lamar Jackson doesn't need to throw for two hundred fifty yards. It'd be really valuable pants this needs to run for sixty and avoid a lot of turnovers. I can't tell you. He's going to do that. I rank them fourteen for the week right behind rivers and rothlisburger, and I would probably start those veterans over him. But I wouldn't argue. With anybody who started this guy? Cincinnati fifty yards fifteen points last week. So I think there's a huge upside. But there's also a floor that nobody is considered. When it comes to Patrick Mahomes. How have your expectations changed for him? When you thought the game was in Mexico City compared to the game now being in LA. I don't think they changed. It all for me to be honest. I mean, that's actually a very good question. I mean because playing in the altitude can affect players I think that he's just so good and has so many weapons and the way they they way they made the game plan around him. It's so special that I really don't have any concerns. I have him as my number two quarterback this week for the first time in a month. I I've got you breeze number one choice secondary's a mess reasons at home, he can do pretty much whatever he wants if the games competitive, but I'm homes number two and I had Jared Goff number three. That is going to be a lot of fun on Monday night. You know, I'm so jealous of my Myron. You're you ask questions, and then he'll he'll go, man. That's a really good question. Like like, it's like he he says it as if I didn't expect this from you all I never get that response for Mary care about. So I will ask. We didn't even know where I wanna is. Well, it still hurt me. But I will say though, it will get I'll ask a basic question, which is down cooks return. I what do we expect from him in a huge game for the Vikings against the bears. It is a huge game. And you know, we saw cook play writer for the by it came back up the injury then and he had a seventy yard run. And there's other nine carries yet. Only nineteen always had a great game. Or is that a disappointing game where he just broke one big play. I think it's somewhere in between Chicago very responsible offensively. I expect cooked me sharing the carries Murray and whoever runs better in the first half will probably be in the guy in the second half. So I don't think we can assume Dobbin cook is an awesome player today. I mean, if you've got them you've got to use them the top twenty one back, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's touches are a little bit curtail from what we expect. Zeke is going to be a play for most teams three weeks ago. Got fifteen carries last week. You saw him get twenty five touches are we going to see high volume Zeke and how will that affect his fantasy production? If he's not that. Yeah. I mean, I rang Zeke Ezekiel Elliott has the top running back every week is the heart of the Dallas offense gets plenty of touches. He catches passes. He's playing defense which is horrific against well pretty much everything, but definitely gets running backs. So even if Atlanta goes up three touchdowns early. I think Elliot's gonna get plenty of numbers in this game or no concerns here. I think it is interesting what Jack Prescott and do this new wide receiver. 'cause he looked good in game against the eagles. And again, I guess a terrible secondary with no pass rush. Atlanta's really not that much better. I think Dallas gonna have no problem scoring points today. Kickoff on ESPN radio Matt Jones Meyer Metcalf talking with Erik caravel fantasy expert. You know, I'm a lifelong bears guy. I've seen so many bad quarterbacks that it's hard for me. Embrace Mitchell Trubisky for being what he is. Which is since week four. They've had the second best offense in the NFL in your rankings does Mitchell Trubisky keep rising like are you becoming more and more and more of a believer? Every week. Yeah. I think we have to. I mean, I ranked number nine this week. And some people would say it's not good enough because he's been right with Mahomes for the last six weeks and others were say come on. He's playing Minnesota. It's very defense there. The thing about your best is he's putting up numbers. Couple of these games. Tampa Bay terrible defense wing when everybody was scoring Detroit last week. They looked like they stopped carrying a month ago and then going against buffalo did nothing. I don't think Trubisky is going to play like a top five quarterback the rest of the season. I think he's a good option today. But I don't think he's a great option. So I have him like rank with the other guys that are kinda like borderline top ten guys like locking rothlisburger and rivers. So I I just think if they can run the ball effectively, they don't need him to throw. Charges against his desperate Denver team. What we expect from Philip rivers. You've been disappointed rivers. I mean the team obviously playing well the difference between real life and fantasy Charleston do whatever they want. Melvin board is playing great or get both back but Philip rivers guy with two touchdowns in every single game this season he has not been a great fantasy option because it's not throwing for twenty yards. Not throwing all that often. I think the same thing happened today. Then was so easy to one on that Gordon could do whatever he wants today. Austin heckler can help out and rumors might get his two touchdowns with only two hundred twenty five passing yards. So I not rank rivers is the top ten four back. I think the win the game easily. That's another factor members at number thirteen seems about right? He has not played fantasy terms at the top ten quarterback. See this is why bums me out. He says things like there's a difference between real life and fantasy. I've tried to live my life that that was not the case. Co and just absolutely crushed my dreams. Well, so tell me what do I do with J green? He's out again today. I mean, do I hold onto him? Like what what what is my if I'm if I've got Jay green. What's my future with him? I hope you play next week. I mean, if they Jay green played obviously the top ten fantasy wide receiver, regardless of the match ups. You can do whatever he wants when he's on the field. But I I mean we've heard he's not playing this week probably not gonna play next week either. So be careful, but you gotta keep them rostered because you don't want somebody in the fantasy Claus in December to beat you with AJ green who you had. I mean, you could trade 'em away the trade deadline and ESPN leagues. It's wednesday. Just make sure you get proper value. But obviously you do not release AJ green pilot boy the top twenty wide receiver this week. I think John Ross could be a top forty option scored last week. The Bengals have a lot problems with defense that could help their offense actually if they're behind and throwing all the way keep AJ green roster, if you're hosting a thanksgiving gathering, we'll guess what? It's no small accomplishment. So so I'm just how much you appreciate all.
