It's funny, Corey because while I was rooting like I've been, I've been five fantasy leagues and a Survivor league and this is my first year doing survival leagues, but I'm in five fantasy leagues. And the guillotine lead the W G R G T lean that Jeremy runs is the one that I'm always like Most invested in because, like you want to be the last one standing in a guillotine lead. You want to have that that bragging right in the past few years generally want to be the one operating right? Right. Historically, speaking in the past two years, I've actually finished fourth in the game Team league. So like I'm really invested every single week in my GT league, and I feel kind of bad because I feel like then at that point, I'm neglecting my other teams. So I'm rooting for Chris. God and I'm like, Yeah. Get the ball to Chris Godwin, Get the ball to him Touched down. There we go. I was upset about his fumbling in the game. But I was sleeping at that point, so I didn't really know I had to get here You get I got to half time. I got to have time before I had to go to bed and be here early in the morning the next day. So, um, out in the neighborhood about like, 10 o'clock? Yeah, but as far as I got, Yeah, yeah. I was watching. All through halftime rooting for Chris Godwin, and I'm looking at my other teams after a little bit, and I'm just like, all right, I guess I should check and see how my other teams are doing. I was facing Chris Godwin and three other leagues. Listen, it wouldn't have too many leagues and you're invested into many spots. It's just gonna be like you're going to be playing against. You're going to be playing yourself like this is why you got to tighten it up. I know like everybody loves to have 15 different leagues. But no, that's you got your money and way too many different pots, right? No, no, I mean, like, I'm I'm not like I'm not like my show bikes. Mike Scott. Like what? Was it somewhere in like the high teens Lower twenties for fantasy leagues at at one point. I can't remember how many He was in last year, let alone I don't know how many is in this year. National figure in fantasy sports might show my show. Yeah, yeah, he does. Sell the Vegas He was out in Vegas this week, Right right in the command center for fantasy sports.

Quite often, You can check it out at w g r 5 50 dot com Anything that he's written in the past. And and he's got plenty coming up later on down the road, but I'm in five. I've limited myself to five. And then, uh, we did it. We just decided to do a Survivor league just this past week where it's just, like, all right. It's more of like a family survival e got. You know, we got 15 16. People were just like, all right, Let's just have fun with the Survivor League inside the family. Let's do that. And Um yeah, so I was having But again, I feel like I'm neglecting my other teams. While I'm like watching my guillotine league Super heavily because I really don't like my guillotine League this year. I don't like my team. I didn't like my team after I drafted him, however, Corey, I do have to say I did pick up Tyson Williams as, uh, as a guy that I was just like I'm out of running back options here. Who the heck am I gonna pick as my second running? Well, great news guy suffered a debilitating injury in front of him. Uh, not not just one guy, not just two guys. Three guys in front of Tyson Williams suffered season ending injuries, uh, for the Ravens. So now Jayson Williams pretty much You're starting running back along with Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman and Levian Bell, and I think that there's a chance Levian Bell is not going to play the Sunday bringing back all the old Favorites, but I mean, you would think that Tyson Tyson Williams is probably going to get the start because he's been with the Ravens since the start of the season because he's not collecting Social Security. Well, I mean, Latavius Murray. I mean, has to get up to up to par with the offense and so does Devonta. Freeman. So Tyson Williams Fine. Like I kind of lucked out there but run that way. Yeah, see the where the that were the and just and just don't hurt yourself and see the guys in the other colors. Don't let him get you. Yeah, So, so I'm heavily invested in my guillotine league, and then I feel like I'm neglecting my other teams. But anyway, I have one fantasy team and this is the first time I've played fantasy sports in 10 years. All right. So like I am coming back into the fold after not doing it for very long time, So I I find all of this kind of stuff very amusing to see how complicated people have made their lives so so back to my original point here is that Anyway, Uh, Derek and Lou, if you have any questions for them with breakfast with the Bills, fantasy style.

"That's a that's a benefit for both these guys cuz well for James but not a creek cuz Chris Godwin on IR, so he's sitting there. So so a flex decision for so Cooper kupp. They're cut off or clay people. Who would you start? I'll be starting back up against Miami. Yeah, I think Claypool against Baltimore not looking that great. Especially if Deonte Johnson does play. Yeah the under Johnson plays and poems. . Claypool at the moment. So yeah, look I look at these teams and I have to I have to start with Craig even though he's kind of tied in the flakes. Yes, but there's definitely it's definitely closer than that. I think Gronk revolvers got something crunk against New York Giants. It should be somewhere in the season when Mary starts to sort of fade on the ground Riverside. See if we can do something a little different whenever you don't know life is full game against Dallas is in for a snack. Let's move on. She said against the Matt Ryan s Indiana quarterback for Chiefs Head Todd golden again are his running backs girl should smash it against Carolina. So that's a good thing does Michael Thomas play this week is a big question for the cheese. Oh, man. So interesting one there. It's got just in Jefferson. They're against Green Bay as his Flex. I think that's that's the right way to go. I wouldn't be playing Darius Slayton together. That's that's the question. I was going to pose to you. It's lightened done in terms of is he no longer Audible now that shepherds in the mix and someone like a Jefferson you start over him. I might be a bit of to and fro between Sterling Shepard and slating in my mind late at Jones and slang still have a good chemistry with Ingram does if he doesn't play and he's got JK Dobbins. Would you start hearing the flex over those two guys know it's against Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh just avoid that all the time especially cuz it's still Ed Gus Edwards. They're off the cancel this side of things. You've got to look at their his who pretty much just one in the match up last week for sure my retriever, we don't know what to do with him. So how did you play a merry creeper? I mean, if you look at it has to he doesn't have the any other options advisor head unless he wants to do a two-tight-end sort of situation with Trey Burton High for a touchdown for another summer time. He's obviously not mix and yeah there but he's also got Gio Bernard on the bench to cover if there needs to be hard. Yeah, so he's running back situation is dire. Yeah. Yep. To question of the Marco Pierre on comes in I guess said he's got the Gio Bernard. There's a lot of coverage and so that's yeah try to swap but it's the the hard or perine type Choice unless someone wants to be making that decision on real friends like a waiver-wire decision. Who should I pick up on waivers Revenue shots? So you've got they're blowing here's got both is running backs got the Q next girl and she said Juju Smith Schuster and Mark Thomas boys with a Q against that as well. So yet to kind of see how this is going to play out. I probably favor. She said. Oh really? Oh, I'm going to probably go with Thursday, I guess one. I think he's a girl or against Cleveland could do. Well. Yeah. I mean, well, here's the thing if let's just say mix and hide play and he has to look at who he's got on his Flex. Would you go agholor piran or Corey Davis at the moment I go I go. I think that that production. Yeah has been good. All right, George has all right, Kenny Rogers. So from the 50-point just horrendous snake that was against the Patriots alien who was just charging eighty-seven. Well, look top-of-the-table Clash. So it is a top-of-the-table clash. I like this book should be really want interesting one to watch. The thing is here though. Georgia's got McKinnon. Yeah, it was arrested last week but really did not look like any favors. Is he in the doghouse what's going on there? Well, look, Jeff and jamaca Hasty just tore it up. Really Jefferson was there throughout the whole game until he got her and then tomorrow Hasty just killed it when he stepped onto the field in the last little bit as well. So I don't know if you can trust Macomb adult if you're not trusting him. I don't know where you go, but it's got Chris Carson on the bench, which is super online. And so yeah, do we have an update on his injury the biggest update at the moment is that it's a game done game-time decision the foot though. I just don't you can't trust feet know. You have to we have to be out of trust them off. Yeah, risk them. Yeah. So look, I think Scott's and white plates a big hole in in his he's got are you sitting in the flex there? That's fine versus Landry though. I know I'm going to argue against Seattle. Yep. It's this is the way to play. Are you for sure the Patriots selling their on the other hands got golladay Adams. He's still got Boston Scott who should still miles Sanders doesn't look like he's off next week and he's got marks and as anyway, so that's a quick change of easily if things change look his team picks himself best team in the competent moment. I think yes starting lineup was yep, really? Good wage. Yeah, who who do you have for this one easily the horse? Yep easily the house last one marlinspike steak on the Friday France. Look, this is an interesting match up with Friday friends. Just Jacobs for me is well not showing up as much lately. He's got Cleveland though, so you should be a bit of a smash spot. Hopefully well at least phone number. Friends is certainly hoping but it's also got rid of giants. Yeah, we don't know what's really going on with their with human. Fournette. Yeah, it'll it's just a 112 down guy Ron Jones. Yeah, that's the the Warriors and unfortunately, I tried it for him recently the listing the lake welfare, then thought it might be able to you know, yeah shake off again up Amari Cooper for him. Who's you know, yeah. I know that's that's right. It's probably still one that it's a threat that no one feels good about huh? So you've really got Ron Jones at Jacob's have shown a lot this year but also showing they haven't been able to unfortunately miles blacks are running with Devon Walsh Devonta Freeman. Really? There's the only other option for him is Brian Hill. Yep, which is not what you want to be playing backup is I mean, he's off Kareem hunt in the flex so so he can he can maybe pivot and and maybe you know, I think Beasley potentially could could which long ago so he's a question. Would you play Beasley over Devonta Freeman dead? I'll just want to know more about that it was is it what's his injuries do we know? Yeah, Devonta Freeman. I left the game with an ankle injury. Yeah, it hasn't practiced this week either. Yeah, I think that's probably the switch you have to make yeah, unfortunately go to play Singletary, but that's that's ugly. Exactly. Yes on the other side with the the eggs eggs, Jamaal Williams and Hasty. Who would you start out of those two Outlook your pharyngitis to play its Jamaal Williams someone for sure. That's you have to play Jamaal Williams. He had I think over 70% of the same thing last week. Yeah. He stepped into Aaron Jones role and filled up really well and look if Aaron Jones does play does he have enough of a role in the offense to supplant a hasty as production wage in San Fran if McKinnon's up and about again. Well, that's the question. I don't personally I feel like MacKinnon isn't going to get up and about cuz I think hastie's the I think they'll they want to see what he can do. Yeah. I I'll be putting hi Steve. I would check out with him in that in that case is also going to go back to the quarterbacks. Yeah, they told.

"Giants leading the Cowboys three and out for the Dallas off dance, and we'll see if the defense is Found a way to solve all of a sudden this explosive Giants offense, which put together three plays of 15 yards or more on that opening scoring drive single back set. Devonta Freeman had a couple of those big plays itself. Jones under center Prima takes the handoff running straight ahead. Spins away from the first Dallas defenders Donovan Wilson, But then he gets good run support. There is Smith comes up. Stops them after just a two yard pick up Well, with the Eagles losing today, all the Cowboys have news win, and they will be leading the NFC Division has done nothing to set itself apart from other divisions around the league themselves apart, just the wrong direction. Jones working out of the shotgun looking at a second eight past time Now, pressure comes in his face steps into the throw completed hit a near sighted short of the first down marker. Jalen Smith. They're on big tight, and it'll be a seven yard pick up. What a great throw. It didn't look like much, but Daniel Jones gave real extreme heat with cowboy do that to an absolute strike. Personally a big fan of Daniel Jones. I think he's gonna be AH, great quarterback in the league just somehow find good players around 31 here. Children give it to his up back, and it'll be an early, easy first. Don't carry their fur like Penny. Third, you're back out of Idaho Wilson there on the Stop so fresh set of downs. Get to your point, Jones. You knew what his weakness is were after last season and certainly and it starts with turnover standing. I mean, forming the football has been a major issue for this young.

"Now here's Greg Potter and the 40. Niners beat Sam Donald in the New York Jets last week in the same stadium Soundly 31 13. They outgained him. 361 yards, The 1, 96 and, Really, the jet scored late in the last three minutes of the game. They only had two field goals for the 1st 57 minutes. I think the challenge today Will be a little higher with Daniel Jones. Also high draft pick. Dave Gettleman traded upto sixth overall in 2019 to get him. They don't have sake, Juan Barclay, but they do have Devonta Freeman will be up today with Dion Lewis and Wayne Goldman, Junior As the running backs behind. But this week we spoke to Greg Cosell, who breaks down the NFL as well as anybody frame by frame for NFL films, and we just got an overview. About the young quarterback of the New York Giants and the Giants. Overall team we talked about Daniel Jones. Just give me your overview on the roster that Dave Gettleman has constructed there. Alexis Hog Molly's and You know not having a shoulder will hurt and you get a big offensive line. They haven't been great. The head. The head coach to me has been impressive, but they're their own two to start the year. So where are the New York Giants at in their rebuild grace. You know, I think that look, obviously losing Barclay really hurt them because I think that they were hoping to be a team where they could pretty much count on running the football every week is a foundation of what they want to do and keep a defense that's clearly a work in progress. Playing fewer snaps. Now that's all changed with the with Joe judge being able check Disciple and the DC Patrick Gray and being a balletic disciple. This is a team that plays in a sub defense, meaning nickel dime They play with 70 beats a times in the first two weeks, they played in a sub defense over 90% of their defensive snaps. So this is clearly a philosophical thing. This is what they do. Even their quote based defense is really what we call big nickel with three safeties. So this is their philosophical approach. I think they feel these are the best players that they can put on the field. They really don't necessarily have bad players on defense. What they lack in the pass rush. They do not have a pass rusher and, of course in the NFL. If you can't get to the quarterback that really poses significant problems to your defense. That being said the New York Giants have registered six sacks through the first two games of the year. And, as Tim Ryan has noted, the strength of their defense is their middle three. And they do play with a lot of three tight ends on the field on offense. So Tim Ryan is standing by to give us a chalk talk is the 40 Niners go up against the New York Giants? Our owing to Jimmy and his chalk talker coming up right here next on the U. S Bank 40 Niners Radio network. Some things are hard to try.

"How are you? I'm doing okay. And I trust that you know, no matter what you're doing. You're wearing your mask because we have found out this week. When you don't wear your mask and your part of the National Football League. There are serious financial repercussions. Yeah, I mean, and I think that's something that was very, very clear. You know, the NFL has been adamant about their Koven 19 protocols and you know all the different safety precautions teams. Need to go by just to get players on the field and get this season rolling. Whether it's socially distancing in inside the facility's or whether it's wearing bracelets that don't let you get within 6 FT. Of someone There's a lot of things that you know, even if it makes you a little bit uncomfortable. It's a little awkward. You got to do for a safety reason just to make sure the season happens. Wearing a mask is part of it. We saw this week from Kyle Shanahan to Jon Gruden. I mean on and on several coaches getting fined, you know $100,000 or team getting fined $250,000 Sean Payton. You know, getting fined for not wearing a mask, and I think the NFL serious about it. Coaches get it. Several, including Kyle, including Gruden have apologized for not wearing their mass properly. And you know, I would expect to see the coaches at hearing from here on out or, you know, face. Similarly large finds they were not a great week to be Kyle Shanahan because you end up coming to the East Coast for two games sandwiched in between You get a trip to the Greenbrier, but in the middle of the season, what are you going to do with that? And then? You lose Nick Bosa, And that is a gigantic loss moving forward for the 40 Niners as they get ready for their second game at MetLife Stadium against the Giants this weekend. What's the situation regarding the field and The way it was checked out to be ready for play. Yeah, I mean, the the field would certainly garnered a lot of headlines with Kyle Shanahan in the 40 Niners players being frustrated at TheStreet Key turf as they say it, and, Yeah, I mean, unfortunately, it was You know, from Jimmy Graham pose ankle all the way to Nick Post in Solomon Thomas's tourney. See L's The Field was not nice to the 40 Niners, but I think what's pretty clear after the NFL, the NFLPA, the field turf official and independent field inspector jets and Giants officials, they all inspected the turf earlier in the week and deemed it safe. You know the field basically got a thumbs up. In other words. Yes, The injuries were not good, but it wasn't specifically the field that caused in. You know, the 40 Niners should go out there. This weekend. Not expecting anything. Different Giants have themselves a new running back for this matchup after, say, Quan Barclay was lost to an A C l not at the metal lands, but in Chicago, and now I want the Freeman comes in. You know, you take a look around for somebody who could pick his spot where he might be able to. Reestablish himself, and I understand the Giants offense has been less than stellar, but this might be a perfect landing spot for him. And it was interesting, too, because he turned down a lot of money. When you turned down $4 million in Seahawks turned down A little under $2 million from the Jaguars and, you know now ends up signing for 1.2 million based, You know, it could be up to three million based on incentives but 1.2 million base And you know it was money wise. It wasn't great for Devonta Freeman, who thought he was worth a lot more. But he's going to get some carries. I mean, he is basically going to be the starting running back there. And if all goes well, he would continue to get fed. And I think for the Giants, you just, you know, hope There's some stopgap for your You know, one of your best players, say Quan Barkley and for Devante Freeman. You know if he goes out and he has a really successful season, he will have earned the opportunity to cash in again next season. Which really was his main goal here. All the strange stories in the past week was how it came to be The Tyrod Taylor was unable to play last week and is unavailable for the foreseeable future for the Chargers, and for those of you hadn't followed it. Ended up getting pulled from last week's game against the Chiefs just before kickoff time, And apparently, the result was because of an injection to his rib. There was a puncture of his long I mean, this brings up all kinds of questions in Yeah, And this is something that you know, I reported. My colleague. My care foe on Monday was a really interesting story to find out was basically a complication from a pain killing injection into his ribs. He had cracked ribs, cracked him the week before. I was on the injury port with a with a rib injury and then basically the team doctor that administered the shot was about a millimeter or two off and it's It's tricky injection. You have to go through the ribs. But it is one that is, you know, relatively relatively routine, but unfortunately, sometimes things can go wrong. People can make mistakes and you know, that's why Tyrod Taylor was out of breath and not unable to catch his breath. On the sideline. It's why he went to the hospital during the game. It's also why you know Justin Herbert was basically walking onto the field as teammates were learning that he was going to be a starter. Unprecedented circumstances for rookie D'Angelo his first game in and actually acquitted himself really, really well, considering and thanks a lot. Appreciate it. We'll talk to get next week.

Yeah, I mean, the the field would certainly garnered a lot of headlines with Kyle Shanahan in the 40 Niners players being frustrated at TheStreet Key turf as they say it, and, Yeah, I mean, unfortunately, it was You know, from Jimmy Graham pose ankle all the way to Nick Post in Solomon Thomas's tourney. See L's The Field was not nice to the 40 Niners, but I think what's pretty clear after the NFL the NFLPA, the field turf official on independent field inspector jets and Giants officials, they all inspected the turf earlier in the week and deemed it safe. You know the field basically got a thumbs up. In other words. Yes, The injuries were not good, but it wasn't specifically the field that caused in. You know, the 40 Niners should go out there. This weekend. Not expecting anything. Different Giants have themselves a new running back for this matchup after, say, Quan Barclay was lost to an A C l not at the metal lands, but in Chicago, and now I want the Freeman comes in. You know, you take a look around for somebody who could pick his spot where he might be able to. Reestablish himself, and I understand the Giants offense has been less than stellar, but this might be a perfect landing spot for him. And it was interesting too, because he turned down a lot of money. I mean, he turned down $4 million in the Seahawks turned down I'm a little under $2 million from the Jaguars and you know, now ends up signing for 1.2 million based, You know, it could be up to three million based on incentives but 1.2 million base And you know it was money wise. It wasn't great for Devonta Freeman, who thought he was worth a lot more. But he's going to get some carries. I mean, he is basically going to be the starting running back there. And if all goes well, he could continue to get fed. And I think for the Giants, you just, you know, hope There's some stopgap for your You know, one of your best players, say Quan Barkley. And for Devonta Freeman. You know if he goes out and he has a really successful season, he will have earned the opportunity to cash in again next season. Which really was his main goal here. One of the strange stories in the past week was how it came to be The Tyrod Taylor was unable to play last week and is unavailable for the foreseeable future for the Chargers, and for those of you hadn't followed it. Ended up getting pulled from last week's game against the Chiefs just before kickoff time, And apparently, the result was because of an injection to his rib. There was a puncture of his long I mean, this brings up all kinds of questions in Yeah, And this is something that you know, I reported. My colleague. My careful on Monday was a really interesting story to find out was basically a complication from a pain killing injection into his ribs. He had cracked ribs, cracked him the week before. Mom was on the injury port with a with a rib injury and then basically the team doctor that administered the shot was about a millimeter or two off and it's It's tricky injection. You have to go through the ribs. But it is one that is, you know, relatively relatively routine, but unfortunately, sometimes things can go wrong. People can make mistakes and you know, that's why Tyrod Taylor was out of breath and not unable to catch his breath. On the sideline. It's why he went to the hospital during the game. It's also why you know Justin Herbert was basically walking onto the field as teammates were learning that he was going to be a starter. Unprecedented circumstances for a rookie to enter the his first game in and actually acquitted himself really, really well, considering he and thanks a lot. Appreciate it. We'll talk to you next week. All right, look forward to it. Take care guys. That's Westwood, one weekly contributor in NFL Network Insider Ian Rappaport still ahead, a conversation. With Gale Sayers and James Loft in a pair of Hall of Famers. This is NFL insider. Vision loss is not something that.

Extra point is good. The Saints now lead a 17 to 70 the Las Vegas Raiders with 5 22 to play in the second quarter part of Monday night Football. You mentioned his soft tissue injuries and how having these kind of changes will affect players, and I mentioned Daniel Jones in the New York Giants. Daniel Lawsky, ESPN analyst talked about that he said, Yeah, John's not gonna be any good. But now you have say Quan Barclay now can just completely play coverage and dare Daniel Jones in the giant to try to be patient enough with a back of running back and And not good blocking off pensive line, And so now you're quarterback is kind of gonna have to play the rest of the season with one hand tied behind its back. The same rule applies to the San Francisco 40 Niners. As good as they've been on defense. They're going to have to play left handed. Their linebackers are still good. But the reason line bags were really good, because those four dudes of front kept them clean. The Salma Thompson in the world, the Millers of the World, and also Nick Bolsa. Now Those guys are gonna have to try to play above their head. You know what happens when it happens? And that means you You wanted not doing your job. You're trying to somebody else's job. Daniel don't have to worry about that. With the Giants, The 40 Niners defense specials. Linebackers are really gonna have to do that without those dudes out front.

"Prepare for the possibility of going into trade without and of course, you look at the depth chart at running back. You have converted wide receiver Cordell Patterson. You have that gadget players, Rico in a bunch of unproven guys right now, If Montgomery is going to miss even weak one going forward, How did the neg utilizes that running back room and do you think they go explore the free agent market? Well, I think if it's a short term injury, maybe a speculating here 2 to 4 weeks, maybe they'd try to make it work Patchwork. Maybe one veteran just to join the comittee. Obviously, they really like, Yeah. Cory Harrison the thing very excited about using them more than just one carry game, potentially, but that's asking a lot. As you said, This guy's a Career receiver kick returner not built to be running back treat cones that built to carry the ball the way Montgomery does right now probably is physically built to do it, But he's got two carries in his career for a reason. Devonta Freeman is the guy, right? If this is a long term injury, you know ifyou're have some cap space. Yeah, was asked Josh. Why is he a bill? Why is he free agent now? Has been back in Dallas for about a month. Now, Kevin, I think it's not eight fully padded practices. Are we any closer to getting clarity in the quarterback competition? Shouldn't anybody have an edge? Right? I think Wednesday's practice was the first time we saw someone separate. That was Nick Foles. They open practice with this two minute drill holes through a beautiful deep, all the winds and the next play just the laser. To Reilly richly done sideline for touchdown. They were true. The best throws we've seen in team drills. You consider the fact that there was a situation going on there running, no huddle all those things it's like and then Mr Mistaking of next granted with the second team offense of live and you could see the impact of that lots of pressure Couple sacks, But he struggled in his sequences. So that that was a big difference, of course, is a no flip. In Thursday's practice in terms of who's with one twos? Oh, I expected a little bit more from Nichols in these practices, but I don't think Mr Miscue eyes probably completed. Mohr throws in her Wow throws which we've seen him do over the years. He's credible, athlete, gifted.

"In for your good kids on vacation this week will be back next week. We've got NFL news. It looks like the, uh, chief's after securing Patrick Mahomes of that long, 10 year deal have gotten another one of their top priorities locked up there pretty much bringing back that entire team that won the Super Bowl last year. Questions back. Why wouldn't you if you could? Yeah, I know. Absolutely. And then they get to be Dean. They've added Clyde Edwards, Hilaire. It's right in the back field, which should make them Lord. That's the on ly time. I'm going to tell you that it's a good idea to draft a running back in the first round. If you do it, Anne Reid did. And I say that because they use the last pick and what that does, Which is a ridiculous thing that these players allowed the owners put in. I don't get it, but it is what it is. I mean, if you're a franchise, you take advantage of it. The first round picks have the fifth year option. And that is the only time I'm going to say it's okay to draft running backs and a round one like if you're picking 30 31 32 because you're stealing another year, I would say based on need look of you're in the back half like not even back half. But let's say the final third, So I may be the final quarter of the drafts of 24. You are obviously a playoff team because they're picking in that spot. And if you have a key need at the running back position, and there is a player that you find above most in the draft. I'm okay with it. But I agree like anything above that. And you better feel confident. You have no holes whatsoever. Because Gon is the day and age where you go ahead and, you know, select the running back 1st 2nd or in the top five. Top 10. It's just It ends up not not resulting in good things for your franchise again In a lot of ways I was talking about like when you build your defense up to be great, That's fine. But in this NFL everything's tailor made for the offense. More specifically, everything's tailor made for a passing offense. Everything you know, I mean, you exploit the ability of a quarterback to be able to complete 70% of their passes. And because of that, The running back. The value of the running back is not what it once was. But it's gone down dramatically in the last decade or so. It's just not a valued position as much anymore. Teams have become wise, I mean, yeah, you get your exceptions with Zeke and in sake, Juan, But really teams have become wise did not drafting them very often in the first round and go back and look at the history the draft in the last 10 years. And compare that to you know, years, 1972 even 2005. Stay where First round running backs were very common. You'd have five or six. You'll be lucky if you get two or three. Now in the first round. We've had some years in the last 10 where you have zero running backs. Drafted in the first round. It just doesn't make sense that Derrick Henry is not going to get the extension he wants. He's going to plant the franchise tag. Tomorrow's the deadline and the reports are that he's not going to sign in. I just wouldn't do it. And it's nothing against Derrick Henry. How'd it work out for the Rams with Todd Gurley Has it worked for the Falcons Took Tung Girly with savant. The Freeman Devonta Freeman two years ago was the highest paid running back in the NFL. He can't find work. No, he'll get a job when teams go to camp and players get hurt, But the body Freeman can't find a job right now. This is interesting because the Todd Gurley contract was inexcusable with the history of the arthritic knee. It made no sense. I know he was just the monster you know, scoring 17 18 19 touchdowns for consecutive years, but the offense was hum humming and You see you can plug in. You know, he may not be 100% of what girly gives you, but you can plug in lots of guys and they convey productive running backs if you have a good play caller like Sean McVeigh. Conversely, though, the Titans really did lean on Derrick Henry in an old school type of running game, and I would, but that's the point is because Even still, what's going to happen with Derrick Henry, you're going to use and abuse him in. And what happens is the war of attrition for running backs is not kind. He'll be he'll be used up. And then when he finally does, if you did offer him a lucrative contract extension that he was willing to accept karma, chances are you'd find yourself in a situation where you're like. Oh, yeah. Remember, He was great when we signed him to that long term deal, And now that it's kicking in, we've used him for 400 plus touches a year, and he's no longer the player that he once was. I mean, the NFL history is littered with great players were used and abused. Remember Larry Johnson for the Kansas City Chiefs? Especially at that position? Exactly? Yes. If you're really good And you're somebody who can wear a defense down like Derrick Henry. And you, Khun Garner. You can you can say all right. It's in our best interest as the offense to rely on him and give him whatever it is 400 touches in the season. All that's going to happen in all likelihood, is that three years removed, he's not going to be anything close to the player he once was. The Walter Payton's of the world were rare. Yeah, I mean, it's just It's like you said the war of attrition is harder on them than probably almost any position in the league. It is just not smart business anymore to pay running backs in the NFL. It just isn't you find him everywhere. It's too bad for running backs because, like I remember Livia Bell, saying that they should start their their own union, their own position union, and it's not outrageous when you think about it like they they need to because they need to be paid the 1st 5 years of their career when they're under the rookie deals. Unfortunately, it's just and look, no one's gonna cry for a guy who Is going to you know what's right. What's the franchise? A 12 million from 10 point I think 10.0.27 that goes to show it's going down position that the franchise tag number has gone down. That's all you need to know. And that's based on what the league averages of the top 10 guys. That's where they come up with that number. So that's all you need to know about how the league itself values. The position. It is just not smart business anymore to invest heavily in running backs, whether that's high in the first round the draft or paying them after their rookie deals, and it sucks to say that for these guys, it's their livelihood, But it's just reality. It just When you're dealing with salary cap and all the other of free agent issues that you might have, or the things that you have to take care of on your roster. It just doesn't make sense anymore.
