"Colfax you realize. This is the last weekend of college football. This is the last weekend now. I know our teams. I'll start on the third we're gonna watch plays on the third on september third Unc nc. you play that same friday night but think nebraska and illinois. It's like the first college football game in. Its next saturday. If nebraska's still able to to play and they're not to in a severe trouble but so we will get that spread next week. 'cause he was funny. 'cause you were like why are why are the spreads on some of these games but not. Uscca game you guessing because since we're a week out they go a week out. I don't know but this is it so the last weekend without regular season college football and it's it's fantastic isn't it. I mean it's. I'm really getting excited. So i look forward to that but first things first we gotta get through this weekend of preseason action second game for the broncos going up against seattle. Seattle seahawks certainly. Don't have the defense that they that they used to the defense. That helped him get a super bowl. Get to another one. It's a different thing so we should see teddy. Andrew lock perform pretty well but we finally will put this thing to bed. Drew lock teddy bridgewater. There's also another competent. Melvin gordon volumes. I'm excited i kind of see how that plays out. There's a lot of story lines here. What's colin sutton situation. He still got the big q next to his name. he's questionable. He hasn't been practicing. Didn't play last week. So how's he going to be he. He he's assuring everybody that he's gonna be alright. This is a contract year for him. And if jerry judy caja handler come out and again. Tim patrick tim patrick's kind of guy that got to feel like they just lucked out on man. He's saltwater seaver trinity. Benson was getting a lot of play in that last game out the right. They're not just the quarterback side but the wide receiver depth chart. How's that gonna look. They on paper yes. This looks like they're going to have a tough time. Gardens is offensive. Line is supposed to be better the right tackle position who starting their bobby massie or calvin anderson other things to figure out believe it or not outside of the quarterback battle defensive side. You just feel like they're stacked but there is still a question Inside at the middle. Linebacker spot alexander johnson josie jewel in the middle but justin stern. How much are they gonna use him. There's a lot of talk like. I mean you saw closing speed. There's a lot of talk that if they go in some scenarios where they're in dime a lot they might want justice. Turn to to be that linebacker kind of in those passing situations. I'll be curious. But then you got josh watson. He's moved up the depth chart recently. He had a nice showing last week. He's listed as number two behind alexander johnson. So that position right there. So there's some big ones to pay attention to this weekend the the interior linebacker spot for denver and on the offensive side right tackle depth chart at wide receiver and can davonte williams. Make more of a push probably won't ever be listed as a starter this year or early on but earn more reps forty nine minutes after the hour. I'm gonna. I'm gonna do something football friday. We'll do it every friday from now on. I want to give you my picks. I'm gonna give you my local picks this case. I'm just going to give you one pick.

Drew Lock on Tuning Out Off-Season Rumors
"Let's start with drew. Lock the incumbent and he was asked to part question right off the top about how the quarterback competition effects his mindset as well as working with peyton manning but drew really thoughtful answers and I wanna you hear the whole thing. the entire press conference where actually. I don't know if i got to ask a question. In fact i didn't and i took exception to but it was remedied. I ask the first question to teddy so here though is drew talking about the mindset of the competition and getting the chance to work with peyton manning this offseason think being in a quarterback competition and then sort of say if you were to say last year not being in one your mindset does change. It'll come into your key. Dorothy quarterback for this team and that's the mindset. That i have right now. I'm excited to be able to be there at this competition in push myself to hold level that Wouldn't have gotten to without this as far as aden as he can be able to give. His time was worth a lot of to my game with more than i think.

"Yeah, I'm not saying like it was shot. I was philosophy because early on John always philosophy was free agency. That's right. Try to fill holes for the draft where we can. Well, that's right. Exactly. And so I don't think he ever really said, you know, I got to thinking afterwards, like the John Elway ever really say what his Overall philosophy he more showed us with his philosophy was and we certainly saw that in their own guys, how they sometimes that even offering contracts, Guys we thought, Okay, he's our impact players. And they would look at it go. We could find better, but he definitely love to go find somebody else's free agents and sometimes over, pay those guys, especially right tackle. So I just kind of got interesting to see what he does. Okay, let's get to the door lock thing because that one I think is really fascinating. It was mixed results out here. I'll be honest. There's there were definitely some people out there that keeping in mind what he did towards the end of the season. And trying to separate out that from what was his overall performance of the season, which almost universally, everybody agrees wasn't good enough. That's not an issue what I find always interesting and settings like this. You're talking to a bunch of draft guys and gals is that they Sometimes have a hard time coming off what their initial assessment was of him. Definitely. And so and I'm no. You know what I'm talking about? They will say Well, he has performed to the level. I ultimately thought he was going to be on. I can't see him getting out of that right. I think the other part of this is the disparity of opinion media hates him. Teams were split on him. You know, media across the board that we talked to our at least that I talked to say they didn't really care. Most part teams and agents and I talked to Hurley. Yeah, You know, he's got some potential. Can you get there? And so that's that's the question. That's the thing the media people that you know they'll have to savage that the draft people that aired out here are always gonna want to be on to the next new thing anyway, so there's there's going to be AH, internal bias there against In media against the kid. I think I thought he showed significant proven the last part of season. I think that if you carry that forward to be great, I'd love to see him get a shot training camp. I don't know that he will. I suspect that he will. On based on what we kind of Cleaned here. The plan, um, appears to be call about these marquee guys, but we're not giving up the farm for him. We're certainly not getting in a bidding war, and I think that we're going to wind up in a situation that we've described quite a bit on this show, and that is Drew lock and Some type of veteran that is there to push him a little bit, Whether that's a nick Foles. Maybe don't something like that. I think that that's the direction it's gonna be for this first year. I think George Payton understands that the minute that he pulls the trigger on the quarterback and pulls the trigger on head coach. The clock starts. You know, like you got to start winning or you're gonna get fired and having this bonus year to sit there, survey the roster survey the landscape of the NFL and really not make splash moves in a weird year where you get the covert stuff, and you've got the weird salary cap stuff. Um, I think that that's a detriment to him trying to make those moves. So why wouldn't you try to build the war chest and then when the capital's back up, make you move? Hit something right there on the head that I want to talk about because you talked about the next great thing. And you see that on Twitter a ton, But you're 100%. Right? Especially with the draft people out here They are asking me a ton about Hey, Will the Broncos trade up? The Broncos be in position for one of these time quarterbacks and sort of speculating on which ones would fit best with Pat Shurmur. So it and maybe that's a bit of what the league has become in a lot of ways. Is you get a finite amount of time. Sometimes it's the season. Sometimes it's not even a full season, and if you don't show major growth, it's in the best interest of the organization to move on from you. And that means quarterback. That's a lot of positions but specifically quarterback I think you hit on something there that I think everybody kind of needs to take stock in is that sometimes the next great thing isn't necessarily better than what you already have. This isn't approach her lock conversation. Just in general in life. Grass is greener. That's right. They're classic situation at that. Because sometimes he did. Sometimes it isn't. So you don't know if the mystery box scenario we've We've been over that one quite a bit, You know, you know, you could win this yacht over this mystery box. Which could be anything you'd be a yacht. S so it's you don't know, but I could tell you that draft guys are always on to the new new thing like they tend to skew that way, and they will be in their arguments. Does that mean that's wrong? No, not necessarily. But I just You know, just something to note when you're when you're sitting there looking at this stuff again. I've made no secret of the fact that I think the drew lots to get another shot in training camp. Whether or not he earns the job at that point. I mean, it would be up to him to show the continuity improving to take the job. But beyond that, I don't think he deserves anything. I think he deserves a shot at training camp in. I'm one of the people who hates that word. I hate the word deserve because people don't deserve things you got there. Earn it right. I think that he deserves the shot in training camp, And I think you bring a veteran into challenging, But I think that if he doesn't get it, you give it to the you know you roll with him to a predetermined point. Wherever you determine that point is, if you don't have it, by that point, you turned over the veteran, you say all right? Now we're going to get serious this offseason of this draft looking quarterbacks, next year's quarterback class. It's good quarterback class. Next year's free agent quarterback class. You never know. Just no one would have thought that the Shawn Watson matched Halford's etcetera etcetera was going to be available this offseason just last season. And I could tell you every year there's one or two of those quarterbacks. You'd never think it's gonna be available. That totally is. So if you're just because you missed out on Watson, it's Stafford, assuming they miss out on them. Doesn't mean that you're totally out of it for a quarterback forever. Maybe this. He just wasn't ready to pull the trigger. Yet while he got an assessment of this roster and next year, who knows? Maybe our Rogers available very quickly on the deserves thing. I think you're spot on with that because that is something..

"I agree and you know what i can't remember now that you say that somebody and i think it was right after the game on sunday. That mentioned you know how much they love vic like man. I just love that guy. And you know i i. Gosh i can't remember who it was that said i read it as a quote somewhere. But you know you look at that and you have to think you have to put an asterix for sure on this last game. You've also got to look at things like no von miller. No courtland sutton no jurrell casey Mike priscilla goes out. Get elijah wilkinson back. But you know he goes in for half the game this last week He's been gone for a certain amount of time. So and now you know. Look bryce callahan. In phillip lindsay. Got a knee injury. And you know. Hopefully philip is back and fine but boy they miss blames six games. What yeah every team has injuries. But the broncos have had injuries to key key players and yet like you said they still go out. They still play hard. I mean that defense was was you know sacking and guy second. The quarterback again tastes mill. And and and getting after him and they weren't you know they're not slacking. Nobody was liking. The offense didn't go out and try had less than twenty four hours to put together a wildcat offense got phillip lindsay taken snaps. You got race freeman with no practice with no practice whatsoever. I mean i watched in pre game. And i see Kendall they're taking some some snaps and the coaches are talking to menendez. I saw him throw the throws he had in pre-game which i know pre-game his pre-game beautiful sure he can throw a football right. This isn't a running back trying to figure out. The kid grew up a quarterback. he could throw. Yeah and i. His first couple passes on like ooh. Wow yeah this moment is pretty big. You know when you look at social media and it can obviously be a vast wasteland of terrible terribleness city but when you have people that understand football or that understand the sport and they point out. Hey look for the people out there that think they can just walk off the street and play quarterback. This is a kid who played power. Five quarterback grew up playing quarterback played in the acc. I get that he's been working as a wide receiver but he has much more of an advantage and any high school heroes. That are out there. Guys play flag football or picked up in the park. That thing they can do this. And you just realize the level the gap that there is between the nfl stars nfl players and and good athletes trying to figure. It makes me about the gulf last week.

"This is our chat following. What was a wild game. Sunday that she was part of the broadcast suzy. You've been to a lot of football games. You've covered a lot. You've been a sideline reporter for a lot. I can't imagine that you've ever been to one at any level where a wide receiver started at quarterback. Not even not even at the high school level. Maybe but how does that. An nfl game to see kendall hit and go out there and he didn't take the first snap twenty four snaps as a quarterback for the first time in his nfl career. That's where he goes to make his debut. I know no it was crazy and it's funny. You bring up a game. Because i think it was just having the atmosphere of nobody in the stands and it felt very And i don't mean this in a negative way very varsity. Jv ish. And i think it was just the you know. The broncos did the best they could with what they had I do think that Sean payton in the saints probably could've put much more on the broncos than they did. And i'm not saying that. They didn't play hard because they did play hard. I was watching in between plays. They're still looking at their microsoft surfaces. There's still They're getting yelled at by coaches. They're all you know trying to hype each other up. I see dalton. Reisner come over to kendall at one point he's like. Hey we got this here. we go. That was early in the game but it was just such a weird feel and you were there. You did sidelines for me. That first game when there were no fans in the stands that was bizarre. You know even just to have fifty seven hundred people around gave you the sense like you're kind of a game but to have nobody there and then to have the situation that it was just really it was kind of out of this world and and it fits in with dave logan's zombie apocalypse narrative that he's been using all year. It's one of those. That first game where i in for you. When you weren't feeling well. I i still have five hundred friends and family team behind me so i looked up. I would see people that. I knew that worked in the organization. That didn't have anything. Do on game day or or spouses of players that i had met or other people spouses of staff that i knew so that almost felt more like high school game because every time i looked there was somebody fifteen rows behind me give or take just like ranked you look all the way up and it was nothing but empty seats and cardboard fans photographer madman all over the place and women. Exactly you brought something up that i think's interesting sean. Payton and i guess takes him. Here's one that said it. But he said they scaled back the game plan and they they just made him a game manager and then we look at the defense. They did not get to exotic on kendall hint and maybe part of that is dumb. Lucky ends up beating. He ends up beating a blitz or whatever because he just uses his athleticism so you just play it straight up you play the gaps. And they're fast enough in athletic enough and smart enough that but they weren't there to embarrass vic fangio or the broncos because they knew that the nfl still a brotherhood. They weren't worried about losing the game..

"Happy hump day broncos country and it should be a happier day. You get your quarterbacks black quarterbacks pack on the practice field well two of the three blake bortles. Not practicing i think. The broncos are airing on the side of caution in case brett written or drew lock where to test positive or anyone else in the building by taking bortles completely away from the team other than as vic fangio put it wednesday to check in with his covid test and grab some food. It's allowing a little more insurance. Of course there's a chance that if blake bortles was close contact with jeff driscoll and no one really thinks they were. They think that they were in a room with driscoll and they did have their mass down at times but nobody thinks that they were closer than six feet or on top of each other. So odds are none of these. Quarterbacks are gonna come down with this at least not from being around driscoll doesn't mean they couldn't contract it on their own and yes cow shurmur in town but he has to go through six days of clearing testing protocol so by taking bortles away from the team they at least have a little more insurance if you will but it was weird. Because they didn't want to say that they were quarantining him They just said that he was taking it day by day and he was away today. I imagine that'll be the case the rest of the week. The report came out just a little while ago and the name that jumps out that would surprise you based on information that we had at least heading into practice. The league read didn't practice. He's shish trae marshall was already out phillip lindsay with the knee..

"Quarterback Drew lock is reflecting on washing last Sunday's game against the Saints. When wide receiver Kendall Hiten played quarterback. Was it coverage? You feeling the whole time? You know us, It was tough is really tough. It wasn't something I enjoyed doing. All of Denver's quarterbacks were not eligible to play against the Saints because of coronavirus protocol violations. Locked tells us about his conversation with Hinton the Monday after the games and I'm so proud of you for going out there. It tastes. You know, it takes a lot of guts and a lot of hard together, go out there and do what you did in the circumstances that you did You said much respect for what you guys doing out, of course, but I was just really proud of them available out there and try to leave that team. You get such a good defense, See? Showed a lot of hard you can respect of pretty much this whole team the Broncos play in Kansas City this Sunday kickoff is at 6 20. Right here on K o a news radio.

Fangio's patience with Lock pays off in big win for Broncos
"Heavy victory monday broncos country. It's always happy when it's victory monday. The broncos taking care of business against the miami dolphins yesterday was just what the doctor ordered. Twenty two thirteen was called a complete team win by so many people starting with vic fangio and then working through the organization all of the players calling a team win. We'll hear from vic fangio here coming up whilst from a happy and relieved drew lock but the broncos dominate on defense six sacks the interception for justin simmons late in the game to seal the win ryan fitzpatrick in and relief at two of who had been knocked out and it was a bunch of people getting in on the act in terms of taxes. John williams with me read. It was bradley job. It was draymond jones. It was demarcus walker. They were all they were all in the mix so it was good to see a complete team effort yesterday. Special teams really. Good they neutralized yukimi grant the stud returner for miami and it kind of relations. You what you thought this team could be. I guess maybe reminds. Isn't the right word but indicate shows you what this team can be when everything comes together. I know that can be a big. If but coming off the effort against the raiders to come back home a team that six and three that had won five in a row to buy low playing great as a rookie and to completely baffle him. Stifle their offense. Just thirteen points are lone touchdown coming early on a really nice catch by devante parker but just a great great effort. And you're on the ground for one hundred eighty nine yards you. Get eighty four for melvin gordon. Plus two scores. Yes the fumbles. Concerning phillip lindsay make plays eighty two yards on sixteen carries. Actually were tied both at fifteen carries for eighty four yards until lindsey was dropped for a two yard loss late in the game and and that ended up being the the difference after the interception
Las Vegas Raiders face 'daunting task' with COVID-19 issues ahead of game vs. Kansas City Chiefs
"Kid city chiefs at eight point favorite leg. I said we'll get to that in a second on the road against the vegas raiders on this game. Fifty six and a half. We will have. John cheering on later. I'm sure he'll be able to explain whether slightly above the market pain. i have to believe. That's all covid related to be quite honest. The raiders defense in the contact tracing protocol. We're not quite sure. If i'm going to have to get called up to play safety and let me tell you my foot speed not enough to slow down tyreek hill and open spaces really wouldn't say i mean i might try and slew coming off the line. That'd be my only shot. so listen. I the raiders offensive game plan back in week five was good. Obviously but the halftime adjustments that. Paul guenther in the raiders. Defensively really is what i think won them the game. It's really what gave the chiefs offense trouble. You really hadn't seen that from the chiefs offense before during this. Patty mahomes like run especially against the defense of that caliber. You go back to week. Five in the second half. Kansas city was successful. Only twenty one percent of their snaps. One point to carry twenty eight percent success rate through their moms is pressured. A ton the raiders. Were able to do something in that game. They hadn't been able to do most of the season which is get pressure vegas. Twenty six on the season pass rush win rate and then obviously after a few good games. Recently where the raiders have been able to apply some pressure to quarterbacks. They've surged to an average defense in pressuring the week. Five game if you look at some of these numbers. Mahomes was pressured on forty. Seven percent of total dropbacks specifically from eleven personnel. Were kansas city. Essentially lives seventy three percent of the time moms pressured on fifty seven percent of those three wide sets. I would envision off the bye with the little extra motivation of not. Just losing to the raiders but but kansas city not being really happy about gruden and the gang taken victory laps around the the stadium there drivers using using the loudspeaker thereafter the week. Five win that Andy reid is probably gonna come with a pretty good game plan here and you know past the success that andy. Reid is hat off the bye. You mentioned this. The raiders are are probably going to be without a few key defenders but You know another handful of defensive players are going to miss practice all week due to this contact tracing. It's probably isn't the offense that you wanna face short handed in in pissed off and not having practiced to four. I would think. I also believe we'll probably see a little more play action for mandatory. You know patty mahomes in the chiefs past game will probably fair little bit. Better here with play action. Especially if if the pressure starts to barrel down. I would also think that it's worth mentioning that three chiefs offensive lineman or on the cova the list it's believed to be contact tracing but we'll have to see this certainly make this game a little bit different. If if all three of those offensive lineman are out. You also expect sammy. Watkins to return in this game us a full practice participant on wednesday so he should be a full ghost that they're gonna have their their complement of weapons out there. The number in this thing is is really interesting. But i think that this tougher makes a lot of sense. I i just don't see. Kansas city's offense not bouncing back here in a major way talk. i mean. They're playing with a chip on their shoulder. Which is always dangerous to begin with. We've seen their passing offense. That was more a work in progress. Probably the nicest way to put it early on in the season and no doubt that was by design. Get on track with mahomes during for more than eight hundred yards the last two games when you look at the way. Mahomes performed against the raiders. Fifteen total touchdowns just two interceptions one of them of course coming earlier this year the chiefs loss as a double digit home favor and i think it's pretty staggering to know what costs kansas city. That game is the fact that hey look. They finished a net negative minus sixty four in terms of rushing yards. The raiders held the ball for nearly eleven minutes longer and kansas city knows that they can hit the home runs. That are widely available. If they keep mahomes operate i think. The raiders passing defenses. You mention it may trending in the right direction. There's no doubt a lot of optimism out here around the raiders especially on the defensive side of the ball. This is a different beast that they're going to try and counter and with sammy watkins back amongst others. I just don't know where the raiders consistently find a way to get off the field. I agree with that. And i get it. You have to young corners in trayvon mullin in our net and people are thinking to themselves like. Hey we're trending in the right direction. We're starting to get some pressure. Would you look you play at the browns. The total is suppressed because of weather and wind. You're at the chargers. It's likely a a lost game. If two guys can hold onto football on the back corner fate and then the broncos last week and drew lock was clearly injured after taking a hit in the second quarter but you could have been trailing at halftime in that game so listen. I think the raiders are better than we all expected. You look at who they've lost to. It's it's the bills box and patriots. All pretty good teams obviously bucks in bills being very good patriots. You know with bill tough spot. There is well off the monday night game traveling across the country. So i get the by of the raiders. I just need to see more defensively to believe it's real and so that that's kind of where i'm out on that unit. I fully expect kansas city to do some good things here. Offensively

They're having the dolphins of the dolphins and more the broncos on different offense than we do. They're under defense than league. Do they have a different quarterback different off sublime yourself. I'm always really take from them as the score more points than the other teams do. We're not doing that whether that's what they do. Or how do it at up to them but by focuses the broncos right now not the dolphins. Hey drew pat was saying the responsibility for adjusting protections. Pre-snap starts with quarterback in center. So how do you feel. You are at this compared with when you first started last year. And what are the things that can be done. Day-to-day to continue improving. Yeah definitely farther. Than when i was last year the thing that helped me a lot last year. Was you have a veteran guy. Guys play tackle played guard in. He's played center and this is his second year at center. Were used in the league. Prevent people we talk about our young skilled athletes but ottawa. Forget about cushion direct. He is and me and him both to work together to get these blitzes picked up. It's it's not easy. You have thoughts on whether you want to slide at this week or you wanna take it or who they like to blitz. the mostyn just like i've said every week guys come in and it's a little different might get stung in the first half by we sell. We scouted them. Stop this thing. And then they brought something else. It's just all about adapting in game for nate kush and that's the basis that we need. He making progress in his.

"Thursday broncos country and it it does feel like abbie thursday nice weather starting to almost feel like fall and broncos back on the practice field with a couple of faces. I think you want to see. Certainly noah fant back out there and limited capacity is a good thing demar dotson for the second day in a row. The full participant. I think there's going to be a decision. It's going to have to be made it right. Tackle you go back to the veteran. Or do you activate allies wilkinson and start him. I think you can activate them and not start him. Then those are maybe mutually exclusive but wilkinson get his job back or was dotson playing well enough that you keep the twelve year vet in. So that's a decision. And then what are you doing at quarterback. I wanted to wait until we heard from drew lock or if we were going to hear from drew lock and i thought we might and it turns out that we did so vic fangio prior to practice drew's gonna do a little bit more and we'll see where we're at but here is drew. Lock himself to. Here's entire press conference for the. I think he does a good job addressing a number of things including not only how he feels. I asked him about his ribs. And how do you recover from sewer ribs. Or how do you treat that compared to say a sprained ankle. Because he had mentioned a sprained ankle he talks about the interceptions a lot. He drew a bit of an open book. And i appreciate that because he doesn't shy from hard question hard questions. He doesn't goof around more than a twenty four year. Old kid might and so. I think that it's refreshing to have someone who's not a robot that that is honest. That is confident that can show a little emotion and so i wanted to wait until you heard from drew. Lock and brown ribbon talked as well. So you hear from that kitto Because i i like everything about him and continue to think that he has a place. Here as the broncos backup for i think a long time maybe behind roommate behind somebody else. But if i've are batman i would say that it's behind drew going into next year Of course a lot can happen between now. And.

A number one is we'll drew lock play that's number one but the story for the broncos. was going to be what would the rotation look like with Melvin Gordon and Philip Lindsey now, the question becomes is Vic Fangio going to discipline Melvin Gordon. Normally the NFL waits until the investigation is over to hand out discipline for things like that but that doesn't prevent the team from doing so so let's see if it does Melvin Gordon get benched as you know the old college coach thing he said a quarter you know does he sit a half does exhibit game I don't know that's something we're going to have to research this week so I would bump up personally Philip Lindsay on my personal depth chart if I had him just on the hunch that big could move on. And and. Put Melvin disciplined him. Somehow they're not gonNA cut him but like disciplined him somehow.

"It is very traditional, and the now you throw Henry Rugs into the. and to me like with Derek Carr knowing what we know about him, and his sort of aversion to risks, you, you'd want to see. Henry rugs deployed creative fund ways to generate yards after the catch, but I'm not sure this offense is capable of. Like seeking to run, you know. Are we going to see him on like around and stuff like probably not going to be a lot of lance, and they're going to hope that he catches splits and catch US splits defenders and takes. The House is not going to be the taking the top off. Six hundred post routes I think they're going to ask him to do that in a maybe. Throw it, but that's not. Derek likes to throw anyways and Brad So. It's Kinda a Little Square peg round hole. It's like yes, offense does need the guy that burn it to blazes. Take the top off open everything up, but he got throw it. You know it's great you got. A guy runs six yards every play, but if He's going to have to run so many deep routes to clinical open up the offense. The run game. Going to be immeasurably frustrating. UNCORK IT and by the way I say this all the time. Derek Carr throws a beautiful depot you does. Way It's really annoying when he's in rhythm Heathrow's I mean yeah I mean I was watching the charges name yesterday and he made a couple of moving throw south. Amherst. there. He's got great arm town. You really does, and it's just. It's so funny. It's like he just doesn't use it and it's like. The charge great as he was doing. Quicken play actions and hitting low in breakers like a fenders, and that stuff was coming right out outright on time. It was really impressive. Those really fun to watch. It was kind of like Oh yeah, that's right Derek. Has that arm town? We just never it because he's throwing hitches and slants, and over, or you know crossers and balls of their out over and over or checking down over and over so a lot of lot of flyer routes, four tight ends do. RAISE FANS! You always point to like his. you know they used to air the ball out more. I guess it was twenty. Sixteen was Amari was that. Whatever but Yeah, like at this point. He's been the NFL for what he had lost here so. Three full seasons him. So we kind of know we I mean he's never lost a year he's. Here it. Wasn't. It was week sixteen on Christmas. Yeah, that was a fun. But the the noted, that's thing he is what he is really. Get where you're kind of leading into right. It's you know it's how many games until we're asking them to do that until this is kind of what I think, that's kind of it is what it is like. This is what he is. Maybe that's why Gruden is building this offense like that with I mean they have four legit label tied at. The. Why do you take? Jury duty man like I. Don't another receiver in a third I don't well, so the other receiver I do want to talk about him because they they've got some really fun. Pieces on this offense right like aside from car you had Darren Waller emerges I think one of the five or six best tight ends in the NFL last year. So you know you have him, you have a Lynn. Boden her about and I never. It's it's. Kind of voting. Junior. I think they're gonNA. Use a back. But obviously you can line them up. Well they have. What's the name? A little load man from Clinton? It was actually quite good last year. The Little Olga Rhonda Renfro. And the. Could. Any four, WHO, came Ryan Edwards who you mentioned? Who Does have true ex upside although I think they're hoping tyrel. Williams is no longer. He was really hurt last year. Men that was. That's the excuse me for cars that tyrone. Williams played through injury. They thought they'd have Antonio Brown which okay they didn't. But they, and then as we discussed, have Josh, shakeups is awesome, and then one of the better offense of lines in the NFL low key is in. A great position to succeed. I don't know when they pay Mario to. Seven million people are saying is a short leash for car, but I'm. He's not gonNA play bad enough for. Them and replacing with Marcus Mariota Rookie. Maybe but I don't see that happening and I kind of what you're saying, too. It's like is the pick of rugs like does that fit whether doing and short answer? No I mean fit the quarterback or the scheme that they've liked to do. Maybe they come out this year and they look like out Smith in two thousand seventeen. Awesome. He's chuck it all over the place. You, never know but. I get what you're saying and I thought honey. Ref, Oh, you just said he had a really good games. I think yeah I think I broke them down like he really came on like he was a legit plus player an asset. Wayne. Coach's kid winter. All that as it placed out meshes well with car. Truck group prefers routes under tenure. Arts is actually what I. What I wrote. I'm sorry. I called him an old man. He's just that he felt like in college. She was like Oh my. Are, you still? That's that's not. Why did I just WANNA establish I wasn't because of the appearance. It just felt like you played. A comes in for like four hundred years. How would this little stat? Tyrel Williams I can always liked him with the chargers. He actually ascended the better you play. You actually played pretty well, even though you're saying what he said, he was only one of three players last year to convert fifty percent or more of their targets in the first downs. Really Chris Godwin Calvin. Ridley Entira Williams, those are only. Unlike those players he did not have. Receiver diverting. Defensive attention. Yes, that's pretty wild. So! I actually think this could be a pretty good offense. I find that believable now. Defense is another story. I Don't know man I. Going down this depth chart looking at some of the editions. There's just so many holes I loved the core little signing. Let's start there on a positive note. linebackers been an issue for this team for a while. And obviously at perfect right and then to whitehead. So. They went out and they signed court littleton to be there will and he I think is one of the best cover linebackers in the NFL. Just incredibly under underrated undrafted. Linebacker for the rams. And, then they signed nick, quite quite Hausky, quite caskey shoot. That's a hard one. That's it. That's how the thought right from the barrel. To be there Mike. He's good, he's less. Small sample size. But it no matter what I. Think. It's pretty likely that positions and upgrade is when you start looking like I guess the other parts of the defense will be better because they really couldn't worse than they were last season. I mean his team ranked thirtieth against the past twenty-seven adjusted Sacree, twenty th and pass rush win rate. It's funny like the Khalil. Mack trade is totally defensible defensible based on like the players they drafted and sort of you know what the return I think the value. But it also completely cursed them. Pass rush referred I. Mean It's just. Now Fun thing. The hard Rod Marinelli. Forty thousand bringing that up. Well, let's go. Lover Coach Marinelli well in no, it probably was a big incentive to come to Vegas right is his daughter is a chef year she? You store on the stress. That inside Vegas. Coach his daughter. She opened up a place. Here called the stray gun suburbs in Summerlin. Actually been there a couple of times, but yeah coaches, kids. We're we always bond, but yeah I mean I. Remember now is one of the best the UN coaches that I know of period and they he's going to get the most whatever they do have and obviously some of Palmer players must love him. 'cause collins sign with them. and. Your goods that's. Just good solid signing. That's where they need. They need the need these solid. Disney, the patch it up. Solid because they're going from bad, there's to go bad to solid. They don't eat bad degrade. A marinole is awesome. You know match. Crosby was a nice fund player for them last year, you know. I, don't think he ever be maybe a true elite number. One Guy I'm not many are that's why it's elite, but I I mean that's a fourth round. Pick turning into a really good number. Two Guy is awesome and arden. Arden key is a pretty good rotational guy Rehearses a nice player, too at tackle, you know. He felt because of the heart condition, but you know they have some nice places up front, and then it kind of conversation. After that with the rest of the defense. It's it's GonNa be interesting well. Last year with feral. That was a disappointment for them. Four and a half sacks off eight hits I mean played them. Pretty! If you watch. Most people saw that as a reach when they took him and. I think he could still be like way early obviously..

"You know the cold try to do with Yeah I. DO I love Saturday eight Manning We had Matt Burke in Dhaka Colpepper I. Love when I know I love I. think that really helps. Those guys grow even Derek Carr Rodney, Hudson. I was just about to say. Dare cars, the best center in the NFL in mind or or runny hutto combine yeah. Combined it's like they worked together. Because then they could start speaking the same language earlier as opposed to get in the guy that maybe been with another team for years four and a offense esteem, and also now they're like. Oh, no recall that RON RECALL! RIP here. Okay, you know so just cuts out any fat. Learn it together. which I so I kinda. I've always been partial to that like if I were to. My by team draft quarterback, trying to get a real young center at the same time, the of will end up from Alabama not blinking on his name right now. He's really good, too. Yeah they did with him. They got him fairly early on to and I. I just like that kind of process, so yeah, we'll parcel that Ryan Kelly. I was like West's name would expire. It's really generic name. I what I also think. Defense is probably going to be better. In large part because it's the VIC Fangio's defense, right? But it's also a defense that again there. There were big injuries right with Bradley Losing Bradley Chubb. Like very early in the season as I recall last year now he will be obviously coming off of that Tornado, but you know what it was down near for Von as well. Still one of the better pass rushes in the NFL, I think but. I think it was an interesting year because they finished like about average in most metrics. But you saw like a lot of unheralded guys kind of emerge over the course of the season, so at one of the preseason games I worked with broncos game, and they're all these guys. I had never heard of like I. Dunno Alexander Johnson I. When I was doing my charts for the game, I was like okay. Alexander Johnson shore or just. Okay all right. Not Personnel. Played well! He played totally well, so that was GONNA be my point like yeah like per cell. Alexander Johnson really emerged again isn't surprising because it was like a linebacker God, right? But and you think ok well usually. He has his history of having these premier. Middle Linebackers linebackers, but there were it was just a very unsexy group coming into the season, and they had some injuries as well I. Think Josie, Joel. Probably isn't going to be started I. Don't know this year. It'll be interesting to see how the depth shakes out, but in any case. He got a lot of these guys who? Cream Jackson SORTA cream Jackson. Right like what the heck man I mean. He was a corner in Houston. He was okay he was awesome for Denver last year. Now you've got to play next adjusted. Simmons, who I think is arguably one of the best safety is in the NFL. He'd be tagged him right. He might have a deal by Donald podcast comes out and says you. Know Switch, week. Yes, so bryce Callahan got hurt. They signed DRO- Casey for. Nothing Aga so to me this defense that was average last year, but you saw vic getting a ton out of these unheralded players I wouldn't be surprised if they take another leap forward as some of those guys come back from intellectual. Bradley troubles the. Easy answer that yeah I mean I I. Actually I knew hit a good rookie year I didn't realize the knockers put up this gear. They were a little inflated. I remember that like when you look to the underlying statistics there were. There was a caveat it. I did I I was trying to call, and I was like man. Yeah, twelve sacks, and we don't even talk about that. But I. DO I think you're right I think maybe yet some. Garbage because the second sack, but you know what I mean. But. Yeah, but I mean that him coming back I mean that's. Is An ideal number to pass rusher in an. Casey is I. Mean a really good player, even if he's maybe not the top top top tier. He was for a couple of years I mean. He's still a good starter. They traded what for him like seven seconds. Yeah Harris's really good shelby Harrison I play with him at Wisconsin. Before he transferred. Yes, shelby, who they, but that's the thing shelby in the previous regime, trying to get used as a true three technique, or even a knows a no stack in those tackle men now they kind of pushed him outside to more before I sometimes three five, but the kind of you know they found a skill set that works for him, and what could happen got locked I think I. Think Fangio's like one of those good coaches that Kinda. Just you know knows what players are good at is like. How do you need? Shelley harassed by? The way deflected the most passes of any defensive Lineman last. Week that he didn't get a big. Didn't get your boy cut from the chargers. That blocked the way. WHO's kick? Oh my God I think I am fairly. That sounds right. That sounds right. I'm instantly on-site any NFL defensive player with the girl's name is. You have to be tough to get to that. Guy Be tough. This is like if I was A. GM at like the combine. Yeah I'd be like him him Ashley covering. Won't pick. THOUSAND PERCENT Yes, so there's law story short I. Can absolutely mean look was not good last year, but I could absolutely see this defense with these elite safeties in a very good pass rush rising into the top ten are easily agree. They're built up front there. They built it how you want to be bill. He built. They built the D. Line a legit two studs. NFL Bunch of Nice other pieces I mean that's pretty nice. They've depth with which people kill for and going off of what you said Aj. I mean watching Jalen Ramsey last year I don't think anyone looked good that Jaguars. Early on last year but but but again that's another by cheap. Hopefully, maybe you hit on it and get a good corner about for pretty not a bad price for fourth-rounder. I think they gave up. So you know if you can get a good starting corner for a fourth-round that you're playing with house money I. Think Steam playing with House money. Let's take a few questions from listeners. Guys some are so out there. We'll just have to work a little bit harder to make our summer. Moments happen of course. Light wants to be right there with you by making it easier to chill this summer.

"I'm just in combat. And you know what he just had chummy literally just said with Lsu arm, sorry with chiefs and going five, five, wide or Oregon eligible receivers out and just keeping five-man protection. That's what else use offense. And it's funny how this? Tie In. That's why borough was incredible because he was so smart, able to operate and pick. Your pick where he wants to go and Nice guys up. It's almost like a point guard operating point guard. Not every time is going to pass it to the same guy every time. Sometimes they do. If it's working point, guards can also. Throw down the post. He's GonNa take a shot. And when receiver you've got five receivers out, that's US you. You did so many times with RPO's to and C. H. comes in, and it's just GonNa. Be Like he's GonNa be I'm used to this. I'm used to running twenty routes a game. You know true route true game. It's GonNa. Walk Right in and they also got the Andre Washington from the raiders who who skillset is very similar, and it's it's funny. I think that's. That's what they're of going for their just go, but just all these types I shouldn't con- SCAP acts because I. Don't think are true real true scap anymore, but these kind of guys that can play all three downs, and we don't ask our backs to protect that much solicits create mismatches everywhere, so no matter what mahomes has five mismatch as mismatches as opposed to maybe just to the other creating just as many as possible and. Yeah. It's pretty cool actually. I mean it's like. You know vision mahomes being slightly worse someplace action I think like a man. He's like the best quarterback instead of the first or something. You know whatever, but like hey, guess, what happens when you play man and C. H.. I'm accepting that too is out there. He's you're going to get a linebacker against him. At some point, it's GonNa. Get ugly and I. Think Andy. Reid is salivating. At that possibility, which is a great visual. So, let's talk about those linebackers on these other teams. and. You know who are who are going to be victimized by by this offense. I mean okay. Let you know what I was going to Segue into the raiders 'cause I like the linebackers, but let me ask you this right now. Gun to your head. WHO's the second best team I know? We did this whole preamble in the beginning about how these three teams shake up anyway. Who Do right now is the second best team. I would actually go with the broncos. Okay, let's Talk Broncos not I'm not sure I agree I'm not sure. No I don't like any of these answers. I put you in a horrible position, but I think the Broncos are really interesting I think all these teams are interesting by the way but there. It was a fun forward to look out because there's so many question marks, and there's so many good players on each team. It's not like a bunch of. Where they want Stud. It's like no. They each have four out of yes good. Totally, yes, there's no. There's no I don't want. Call the Jaguars. I feel bad, but these are all interesting teams like we said. The teams, the broncos might be the most fascinating because They have this young quarterback who their fans are very high on I. Get so many tweets talk about drew lock truckload drew lock, so we are going to talk about drew lock. So I think I tweeted. Like a month ago or something? Hey, I'm gonNA. Watch some drew lock. What's his best game and everyone's like? Houston got a little bit of Detroit so I watched both. I throw the chiefs game. that. Was that was the? Mahomes Ragweed I. Think I had and that was thrown into snow, and that was that was ever. Impressive he's just throwing a wide open guys I'm like okay. Then watch the other side and watched the rookie quarterback. They're on the same. Appreciation okay so. So so, let me tell you. The things I liked about drew lock. He's very athletic. I liked the way he moved I. Think and I think we talk about this new broncos offense because they have a new coordinator in charmer. I. That is something that I think hope. Believe should factor very strongly to their offense. I think he's not a terrible decision maker. Actually he didn't do to me to my eye. He didn't do that. Many boneheaded things. I think probably should've been picked off a few more times than he was not in Texas game but. He's not an idiot. He and I and I think that's because come out of college. That was one of the things on him. Well, the decision making in. So I thought now look he didn't. You didn't see seem like going through progressions like I. Don't think saw him going off of this I read very often, but he also wasn't like. Do you make many horrible throws into traffic? The kind of things that are going to get killed. He's got a nice arm especially now. He didn't use it a lot. Last year, he didn't I think. Gosh I haven't seen with. Yeah, so okay so so! Six point nine ten air yards per town, which is the seventh lowest in the NFL? He was nine thousand expected completion. twenty-seventh is in completion. Percentage about expectation basically means he's running remedial offense. So. Those were the things I liked. Basically I feel like we didn't really learn a ton because he played such horrendous I. The Texas game is like. It's crazy. My biggest takeaway from that Broncos, fans for you get upset is that no fan is awesome. I feel like I was running early in the year. And, it was mean. But his name with can't so it just sets up some jokes I'm not sorry for. What he also was on my team. I know I know it's not my fault, but he was a boost in those final few games, so you're the better quarterback evaluator. Tell me what you got out of watching through I, mean they're. Kind of like read my notes, basically it. was you know with lock it was. I think. That's what a lot he just needs wraps. It was so much of it. He needs a lot more development than I think. Even broncos Fans WanNa tell themselves I think yeah I. Don't think he's Dahmer anything like you were saying. I think is just mental caucus slow at this moment, so we I shouldn't call people smarter whatever I just. I I, didn't think he was making terrible decisions. Complete agreement with you I I was I'm with. He's probably a very young man. They're all very know exactly. Yeah, no one is. But yet, he I just I really need to see. Stop come open and I think there's just a lot of these. NFL concepts I'm going through puberty if my my voice cracking. He goes through a lot of these newer plays. It seems like he knew one route on that play, was he? Would just Baba call the play and was like okay I think I have a go route on the outside here. I'm throwing it because they're times. He's looking at a route that there's no way. The coach told him to look at that right. I mean just no way I don't even need to know the exact being that meeting. Room I. could just I just know so? It's Kinda one of those things where I think his knees time he just needs wraps and it just, and that's why I can't make a definitive statement on him because he doesn't have nice things. That I'm not like Oh. Yes, shot. He and he's got an arm. Yeah, yeah, then and when he does know the play like I made the joke. They run spacing the past ten times a game is. is, because it's probably a play that he knows, and so the the the corner last year was trying to. You know always like feed him a little bit and get him gone a little bit, but it's Kinda one of those things where it's like i. just think he just needs a lot I think it's going to be another year before it may take a leap, and I'm or a half year I should say it might be ugly that first four or five weeks before he got new system. Yeah, to which is challenging because. So you know his prior coordinator was Rick Skin Gorilla, which was cow Shanahan influenced you know, play action heavy offense. Lot of bootlegs. There there's a lot of booting built into it, but to my..

It's hard to find good corners, and I think they having a a game changer a game record as some people call it at each level of the defense is huge, so they have three game records. True Gamers Chris Johns. Johns Frank. Clark and honey Badger and I think for them. They're just going with okay brilliant as solid starter. Once we get him back, we'll hold water. Probably they're probably GONNA BE PRETTY CRAZY first couple of weeks. If if with ruin out, but I think to them, they're more just like hey. We have three stars.

Keep it under thirty all. About that quarterback, like I said, do contracts, it's like it's a team friendly contract. It's frigging foreigner fifty million dollars at least like. Figured out what guaranteed mechanisms means it basically means they can't cut them so. The the scary thing about Mahomes, I've I've just been kind of thinking about like okay. What is there to say about him? The scary thing about there's a lot of scary things about him. Obviously but I. Think one of the scary things about him is that he was clearly playing hurt last year. And that's fricking insane. Obviously, he was held. But. Like it's just told. US that. You know he can be so much better outside the pocket next year so much better at extending place so much better on the Rani's already the best. Throw around the run and football right now. Yeah, and I think. There's your thing where he's like worse on play action the dummies and I talk about. Why is that from a quarterback perspective? Tried it try to explain that. His mahomes is so well first off. Probably just reps from what he's done in college. High School Plano Texas. Texas Tech high. School in Texas in College. But. I think some of it is. He likes to see everything, and he's such a quick triggerman that he wants everything in front of them. He wants a snap in manipulate, but this is get the ball out and do something with drop I think with the play action stuff, a lot of play actors stuff, not old eligible are out, Guy, staying protect. Man Sometimes if it's under center and you're doing play action. Turn it back to it I. think it takes away. Some of his out should take away. You don't really take away much from. But IF HE turns his back to it. I think some of it is more of okay why it's really hard for a quarterback to just stand there and time and time in timeout you go five finally protection five eligible out incomplete balls one after another mahomes makes it look so easy. We just keep going why every offense to that. Why is every offense? Why don't they have five five minutes same protection? It's because they can't Patrick Mahomes as the triggerman so I think play like you really need the play action stuff, 'cause he does everything else so well and so. So. It might not be as something that he can't do or he's not. He's limited that so rather than just the whole argument about him, turning his back to the defense and everything mahomes freak, so I'm sure he handles that fine. I think it's more which is lean into stuff were ridiculous. Good at knowing can stop anyways. There's no need to manufacturing thing like other than other than the Lincoln play. You know the famous leaks that we all Bob showing twitter. 'cause we know the name of it, so we all get really excited. with you know also because I. Work with a carrying. L. Lsu ran against Florida and they hit. The guy fell off into those like it's one. It's like one of one of one hundred selling of a hard time. So like so like as yeah, those are shop, wiser manufacturer shop place, but you don't need a manufacturer, anything but MAHOMES UNLESS! You get into a team that maybe they do have figured out that day. Not everyone has their fastball or as a coach scheme, wise or a player, and maybe that's when they are okay. We're getting. Our butts kicked Stanford protect, but we still need to get. Charts can't think doc so I think it's more mahomes a show good at the hard part. They're just screw. We don't need a play action. No West, we just. Really like this concept this week we'll get five five outlet mahomes interesting work. You know I i. think that's their thinking. Right? I mean this is like. That's like the issue with criticisms criticisms of him like. Bales little quickly sometimes right, he could move a little bit more inside the pocket. Yeah, but when he bails, he liked turns. Chicken you know chicken salad so I'm really going to criticize him for like not having subtle pocket full four drew brees, or whatever like this is like no stupid. All this. We can just skip that. A the Edwards layer thing is interesting I do. WanNa talk about that with you because. For those who have forgotten already I, don't blame you. It feels like another lifetime. The chiefs draft running back I. After. We spent the entire offseason praising them for being the past happiest team in the analytic starling of the NFL. And you can see. Setting aside the question of woke devalued been gotten us. Maybe maybe quarterback. He's going to be a monster in this offense right like both, both by the way both things can be true. I think yeah and I think he also is going to be a monster in a way that makes life even easier for Patrick, mahomes like there's this concern, nate. Because the team spent such a high draft. Pick on him. They're going to be pressure. They're gonNA feel pressure to run the ball. I Trust Andy Reid enough. That he's not going to do that. and Rather I think he's just going to use them as match up nightmare, I mean when you already have tyreek Hill and Travis Kelsey on the board. Defenses are doing everything they can to take one of them out the throw in this running back who runs routes like a wide receiver and your eft right so to me it just. It creates so match just so many problems for defenses and you know you gives you. Those like smaller chunk plays that I think sometimes she's offense has been lacking.

"Scarcity of Interior Pass rushers in that sort of top tier, right is really interesting. 'cause last week, Nate Fox and I talked about how Jimmy Garoppolo and how I thought he was kind of uniquely vulnerable to a strong interior pass rush, and that's when you start getting. The Jimmy Garoppolo doesn't read the middle of field scenario going on. And I think down the stretch when he played teams like like including air, Donald Laycock who had that capacity to push apart from the inside? You really struggle and I think that's true. Actually a fair amount of quarterbacks in the NFL who. Are like say like a team that they might meet in the Super Bowl the saints. Were you really want that interior pushing. It's certainly brought the last superbowl as well and and I agree, it's this. It is interesting thing. Okay like, do you? Would you rather pay like again? They have a big money addresses and Frank Clark or would you rather have that sort of rare skill? Set that previously? I don't think we've thought of Interior Pass rushers needing to make that kind of money, right? But perceptions of positional value have evolved, and you know. Yeah, they look at him and they they see how rare is especially as you know he's. deforest Buckner is really special to I think. The niners just had well. That's a whole other thing, but so I do think I see what you're saying I think. He's a sure thing to write for them like sometimes. You just to pay the. Homegrown guys yeah. Yeah who you develop now. Yes, it does mean they're going to have to find elsewhere on that defense. Some of those draft picks are going to have to hit otherwise. They're going to be very very challenging. Roster standpoint from the perspective I. Think like I really like what we saw a one thornhill the safety they drafted last year before he got hurt I, actually thought that was going to be like a total killer for them, and it wasn't in part because of everything spagnolo did with this past defense, and a lot of it revolved around the honey badger. WHO's probably like the most intelligent like? Right now. Awareness, we're doing this madden show neck tomorrow and the first thing I wanted to see was if he had like ninety nine awareness because. What he does in this defense which? spags deserves a ton of credit to write. This is a defense that ranked six in two thousand eighteen, and he got up to ultimately fourteenth. And a lot of that has to do with the work he did in those players did in the secondary. Even though I think most people would be hard. Pressed to this point to name the chiefs cornerbacks right like Bruins. The aforementioned persad brilliant is suspended for four games. I think he's appealing like. Who is starting there? And normally you and I would look at that and be like. Oh, no, this is a huge problem. Were putting so much faith in these safeties in this pass rush. But it isn't issue if you look like if you look at the our lads for you know what I was doing this study. With this edge is seeing. One of their corners six round pick last year, shot van or you know. A whole bunch of rains in their DB Room Greens are. Our cultural agent, you know they weren't even draft picks, so it's like okay so. They. Have you know again, I. Would bags and bags. Yeah, was basically Cohen VP at Second Avenue here because it was, it was so aggressive, Stephen Rees the great breakdown of it. And one of his articles to and what's cool with him in this is where the scheme talents. Really comes together and that's good coaching is that he was like all right I got this really unique skill set skillset with a honey badger? All Right? How do I use? How do I truly on lock them and he did any. It may take him a couple of weeks, but he did, and it was so much fun watching all the cuts stuff they would be when crossing routes, and really it was a lot. We're honey. Badger was making educated guesses and the fact he guesses right. I'll. So it is, it's really cool. Stop to just watch them all. Yes, go, but like you said. The corners. Are Iffy. That.

"One of the hosts thinks the phrase tap mahomes foams is what happens to pops when they're good boys. That's Lenny. Get it pet mahomes I'm times and I am delighted to be joined by a second time guests, the outpour of demand. The cries from the streets I couldn't walk outside without people saying. When are you going to have an eight Thais on? When are you gonNA, have nate back and I said get away from me your warning. You know to close. I'm wearing a mask. You may have said something else NATO's welcome back to the show. For having me, I didn't know three tweets as an outpour. Three tweets two of them for family members. Probably, it was probably the the outcry that you got. I did see her dad's tweet and I appreciated it. My Dad's tweet. He's talking crap like. Hits in some. for? For. Those who don't know actually nate. Your background is actually pretty pertinent to this episode. Given that we are talking about the raiders who you worked for what year was that? She doesn't sixteen two thousand seventeen all right. How many times did you write? Oakland instead of Las Vegas while preparing for this I, cop out wrote Raiders so division is a killer between them and the chargers. It is not it's not fun. We'll go. Whilst West says reclaimed its title for the most two-word City names and and Alan Vision, so it used to be la raiders India charters can say chiefs Denver Broncos and now they took that title back once. The raiders moved to Vegas. So. This is the kind of analysis that made people clamoring to have you come back to the show, so we are talking about the AFC west. This Week and As always I'm Kinda Kinda? Sum Up my overarching perceptions before we get into the teams and. I think before I. Did this exercise? I always say exercise which I feel like makes it sound way more intense and rigorous than it actually is for me, but. Before. I started looking into these teams and thinking through what they look like this year. How much they've evolved I think I've felt the division was better. I mean. or at least I thought it was. Maybe potentially. COUPLE OF WILDCARD I duNno at least one wildcard team, which is totally definitely possible, but my new feeling is that after the chiefs, the other three teams could really finish any order which I tweeted, I. Don't think they all have strengths and weaknesses and I. Don't think any of them is markedly better than the other I completely agree with that like going through each one as soon as I started to like a team. It kind of started going. Okay well this, they don't have this. They don't have this well. This is a big question mark. That's another question mark, and then say oh. I like that piece, but it's like. Does that really fit? You know so mean just like every team. It's question marks everywhere, but I completely complete agreement with you there. It's like a wide range of outcomes to I could see any of those three teams going ten at six and three of them going forward twelve. You know it's like they're. On injuries depending on if a guy breaks out, depending on the guidance takes another mini leap. I mean there's there's a lot of variables with the other three quote unquote. Actually like last week when dominated the NFC west, we ultimately put them in the same order. There's still some various I think. The cardinals could finish with a wide variety of records for example, but we felt pretty strongly about the order I. Really Don't know what order you'd put these teams. You're right. It's so dependent on the quarterback situation. For Two of the teams I think the raiders defense is ton of question marks which we'll get to, but we are starting with the reigning Super Bowl Champs because they're in the news. And because while I was looking at the death, sharks chart while while the depth chart I was just struck by the fact that Bishop Bruin Bruin speaks are both on this team which I think of the Shenanigans. Berlin anytime. Someone said Bruins speaks name. I'd like not now. I'm busy. I'm sure that's what they get up to I'm sure NFL players. Puns in word. It's like one of those. What does that jeopardy category four just? Yeah that is, that's perfect, or there's a show ice on game. Show network called chain reaction, and that that game was amazing, so they'll give you the first word in the last word, and then you decided. Yeah, you gotta to go. One by John I used to watch every day four, three, hundred thirty, but. It was Yes incredible, incredible Bruin Speak Speak Evil Yada Yada. Each word would go buy one somewhere. Someone at ESPN is listening and thinking about the nfl live and just heard me say that in with your, why do we do? So the news is not that although it is to be, the news is well the latest news we didn't. Fox didn't really get into the MAHOMES contract too much. Because from a perspective, I didn't think there was a lot to talk about, but he did. Sign Chris Jones to a four year, which was you know? Enabled by the mahomes contract to a four year deal worth up to eighty four million dollars eighty-five million dollars. Tomato tomato so I thought. Perhaps we should start by talking about the defense, and what this means now I think there's. Interesting roster construction ramifications. They still Kelsey. As year left I believe. And many the issue I think it's actually yeah. I twenty out drinking. I actually did the. Only reason I do that was because I looked it up the other day. Someone tweeted about it like they should start negotiating. A bill. Bardwell is like they start renegotiating Kelsey next or something of that sort of the kettle..

"Listen I like it. It's national media. Putting a highlight on. On the Broncos I love some of the Denver media to there, so you know what hurt. Oh, I've been saying drew locks going to be the greatest, and now just because heard, says well, because you have millions of people listening to your show. If. You have that then you don't have to worry. People are going to know what you say and they're gonNA. Hold you to it. It's Okay I've said some things to that I've heard from. Colin Coward but I'm like you know what that just reiterates my point. or it differs from opinion versus text line, three, one, nine, nine six. Is. Is! Drew Lock are. We ready to say he's not only the again saying he's a franchise. quarterback is not saying he's the dark horse to win. The MVP those are two totally different things. Launchers been trying to connect with the show launched a man. What is happening? Hey, how you guys doing today doing okay. The broncos are in the national spotlight. Because of guy you here on this station every day. Colin cowherd. First off, are we that sold on drew, lock. In a I'm I'm I'm excited for him to see what he does. Before where we start really didn't do anything on this I. Think he's going to be good I. I don't know that I'm ready to say he's. He's going to be up in Peyton. Manning Gian territory I don't even know if I'm raised that he's going to be up and Jake Plumber territory. Well. I'll tell you what I wasn't a huge plummer fans. PLUMMER! No. No. Well. I'll tell you what turned me off about him and this is. The people and they slipped off the camera. Was that what? Made a lot of people the wrong way I actually knew the sports information guy. He was with the Broncos Paul Kirk, and then he took the job with shoe and I have some insights. Scoops there about about that relationship to. It was very unique some some I opening stuff. That you know. After, he flipped him off. I, just Kinda just lost. Respect for the guy so laws are noted nobody flip the bird to the. Or you're done with them, right? You're done it. Might Flip. Bad. Double Flip, you might get them with the double bird. Yeah really. Yeah never that you don't WanNa see that one after that one. Are you voting for the Broncos to win AFC west? You know what I'm going to say, not yet They're Kinda. Show me what they can do, but I'll tell you. I'm excited for for for the season now. Yeah, Oh, definitely excited can't wait. I have the broncos unfortunately losing to the chiefs twice I think the chiefs are going to be like a thirteen win team I'll go through their schedule a little bit later on I liked the broncos get back in the playoffs, but I don't have them being a superior team, they're not. They're good. Their schedules going to allow them to win eleven games, but that by no means. I'm not going to give them. You know a deep pass into the playoffs at least this stage I'd say. Maybe. Lots of what's for lunch today, man? I had I had to sell it and some risk.

"Colefax worse drew lock. What's he up to drew? Lock is working hard staying sharp during the lockdown. But before everything went down he was visiting to. He was visiting in Missouri staying with his parents hanging out and then everything hits so he just stood stood still. He stated his Parents House. It's just a funny headline because it's a Broncos. Drew Lock working hard to stay sharp during lockdown at Parents House. He's he's young. He is young man so of course he's visiting he stay in there but he's been hunkered down at his parents house and it's actually kind of kept him. I Dunno somewhat ready. He said you know what I'm around my parents. It's great where we're connecting and everything's awesome there but I'm not really thinking of the pressures necessarily. I'm just taking that time to to continue to learn to continue to grow and study up on. What's needed for this offense going forward? And that's that's the tough thing I mean. We've we've talked about this a lot. It always certainly giving drew. Lock the keys to this car keys this Lamborghini and he's giving them a lot of weapons and you got the new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. There's going to be a lot for drew. Lock to learn. So there's there's a part of me that looks at and says man. All the pressure is on drew. Lock because of the weapons. Because of what's expected of this offense now but there's also a sense of you gotta give them a little bit of a break. You know. Aaron Rodgers and Philip Rivers even Philip rivers learning new offense you. Those guys are veterans. They've been doing it for a long time. Locks only played five games so the tough part is when you put the we are going to put pressure on him. He can't be terrible you know. He can't even be below average she has to be average least But the tough part for him is the fact that he's young. And this goes for any quarterback this goes for any rookie or this goes for any guy that just started last year was just starting to get their feet underneath them in this league. That is going to be tough but especially a guy in drew lock where you're placing your offensive coordinator. You Bring Pat Shurmur. You have a lot of new weapons which sounds great on paper. But I'm still curious as to how this is all going to work out. You have a lot a lot of Saul tight ends now at least again on that proverbial paper. You have guys that should pack a little bit of a punch on the tight inside of it. You went and got. Melvin Gordon. You like what? Melvin Gordon is going to bring to this team but again I'm curious. How does that all work do you do? Do you look at it and say. Hey we're we're going to. We're going to add so many different bells and whistles this offense. You're never going to know where we're coming from. We might have to back set. We might have a tight to back set with two tight ends and then one wide receiver. We may have no wide receivers receiver again. You bring in a lot of tight ends. You know you have no a fan you picked one up and you picked up in the in the off season and then you drafted one so that to me says yeah we kind of like the tight end game here you picked you picked okay web on in the fourth round which is a kind of guy that I think. He's not that doesn't mean he's going to be an instant producer next year right. It just means he's going to be a nice add on to what we already have. With Noah Fan. So is it going to be? Are we going to see some heavy sets tight ends and running backs? Then you have Sutton and Jerry Judy and K J handler and it may be tyrod Cleveland seventh but still wide receiver you can convince certainly is going to see three or four wide receiver sets in there as well so again. I am pumped up. I think it's going to be fun. I Won't lie to you though. I'm definitely looking at it saying maybe. There's a reason to reserve your expectation of the Broncos scoring twenty seven points per game twenty twenty three points per game in in theory. That's GONNA work out but game one. Who's game one going to be against? We don't know yet. That's why you gotTa Watch. The three hour in fell schedule special tomorrow night. Cove exciting to watch the depart tonight. So you can figure out by watching a three hour special. What's going to be available three hours later? Just by googling it without the excitement. It's true you sometimes. I guess you do WanNa see here. Some of the the specialists talk about the bachelor ups and stuff but I mean I could go look up the plotline for the departed right now and that's true you can look. You could look at all the decent point saying you. You could go. Google all of it really. I would've last year. I'm not a big. Nfl Schedule Release Guy. Because you just get the schedule and then you piece it together as you go but yes tomorrow night. I will be watching that. I haven't watched one in a while. Now I've I've I'd say you know. Ever since they start. I think it was a one hour special. It started and then they started increasing. Its too and this year. You're like we're starving man. We need to do a lot more in this. You throw out three three hours for sure. So that's coming up tomorrow night. That'll be interesting. Our power to play sports. Poll question of the day was more of a nuggets. We talked a little nuggets last two nights or to last two days. Something Airshow night show is a call. Yokich true superstar and I'm GonNa give you my finishing thoughts on that when we come back forty seven minutes.

Denver Broncos miss injured fullback Andy Janovich
"Edger Mason from the D. M. V. are the D. M. V. R. dot com wrote up a little bit about the struggles in the run game now it's no secret Benjamin that the Broncos miss sandy Janet **** they must channel they love genau when the general said to be all right they had twenty two of them now the numbers you you've got over this we got over those balls very quickly refresh everybody's memory about how good they are with channel first without Janel the Broncos averaging four point four yards per carry and one first down every five attempts when Janet was playing in the seven games in there without him the ones he's missed due to injury the average only three point eight yards per carry and their first down comes every five point five attempts to pretty big jet drop right we we talk about what the league average would you if you want to be a a good running team you want to average on league average of four point four in a box right right yeah and it's you know with with this team it it really is designed to run especially these running backs designed to run behind a row of a full back fill Lynsey if what he does is fine so small creases in when you get a gentle clear the way get an extra seal blockages makes such a difference so I he is sorely missed with what they do I like ager back as a receiving guy back feel but I haven't really been overly impressed with Lee blocking and yell a time you gotta you gotta soul run offense with it with a greatly Boker like Chad it you know you really miss him when he's out yeah I'm with Andrew back we we both like him as a receiver his route running all that and maybe he's gonna make a little bit easier for the Broncos to make some decisions are tied into the offseason as they've got did your fireman contract they have to deal with they have decision at the Macon Jake bites I mean he's still a rookie deal but maybe there's enough energy back to the they moved on in that direction same thing with the food the galley who's been okay for a me again for like a fifth round pick he's been what you sort of expect but he hasn't taken any huge leaps forward and maybe you still drafted other tight end you stay young in that room well yet you still got Austin for but after the training camp Darling who was was on injured reserve so you you've got some bodies back there tight and all the sudden you know you got too many bodies and not enough roster spots it's gonna be interesting to see next year how that shakes out I'm completely with you did you realize Benjamin and I didn't realize and I don't know if you saw this on our guy Andrews article but when the Broncos since two thousand sixteen when the Broncos rush for at least a hundred yards the average for a half per Kerry and they try they run the ball is twenty times their ten six Congo's committing to running get a hundred yards at least a hundred yards for have yards per carry which is an insane by any stretch and they have at least twenty attempts there ten six they are twenty one and thirty one when they don't meet those standards what is that yeah it tells me to some pretty definitive benchmark so what this offense needs to be where it needs to be ordered be successful I think this is a pretty pretty clear indicators I mean it seems that that way but honestly when it comes to the the running game it's it's a little bit of a tough thing because you you say well I want you to to run the ball let's just say they run run the ball twenty times in this game no matter what well the the brokers have I've kind of made a point of trying to take what the defense is giving them and they'll maybe maybe check out of things and they also seem to remember what happened in the Chargers game the second half when the Broncos opted to run the ball a lot in the fans kind of got a little restless about gridlock not throwing it well yeah I those fans who showed up for that game in the cold were there to see drew lock throw and I think that's that's kind of a part of that but you know they want to go conservative they didn't want to expose him I get it it makes life said I wish they would have done some more things with maybe throwing on first down to kind of keep the defense off balance but you know I overall that that game plan going could several like that which is to protect young quarterback I'd like to see them you know we talk about your lock and I think he's gonna get his of X. two games but I'd like to really see them right the run game I'd like to see some more outside zone I was really disappointed at the Broncos didn't seem to run much outside so to give kids a city in a game where people struggle with footing eight it why not string the run to the edge where Phil lives you can keep reading looking for that cut back lay that will creased as it through and and get you some yardage they just didn't do it and I understood some that's a function of get behind you know and and I have got to throw the ball but sometimes you gotta create those opportunities and you know I was a little disappointed that well really with this season the Broncos haven't gone as much outside so as I

"App the year of the backup and backup backup quarterback continues in the NFL we saw David Blau start on thanksgiving for the lions the bangles are going back to Andy Dalton the Steelers going back to doc Hodges and now mark the Denver Broncos are turning to drool lock as their starting quarterback another quarterback for the Broncos who can't seem to find their footing at that position and I'm wondering and a lot of people are wondering is this an indictment on
NBA Draft 2019: Latest 1st-Round Order, Predictions
"And ladies and gentlemen, we have a new mock draft out Mel kiper Jr's three point. Oh is here with us. And we are looking forward to the draft. Mel will join us in just about an hour to talk about the new mock draft. But there have been some changes in the draft specifically one less quarterback. Now going in the first round then in mel's two point oh mock draft. So we have four in the two point oh mock draft with Daniel Jones from Duke rounding out of the last pick of the draft to the patriots in the first round of thirty two. There are only three quarterbacks now in the first round, according to mel's latest mock. And obviously a retirement might be a big reason why and the quarterbacks have changed as well. Right. As far as where they're they're going. Well, Cuyler he still has Tyler going number one derozan. Well in his last draft Cuyler going number thirteen to the dolphins. So now and this draft he hasn't going number one. He had. Dwayne Haskins going number six at a giant Kyle Murray. Going number thirteen to the to the dolphins. Drew lock going fifteen to the Redskins and Daniel Jones going thirty two to the patriots. So as you mentioned Daniel Jones now out of the first round, according to the latest mock draft by Mel kiper, just three quarterbacks Murray number one. The main says Dwayne Haskins at number six, and you start to hear reports that the giants may go defense was six and then was seventeen go quarterback. But right now twain Haskins at six and then drew lock sitting there at number thirteen for the dolphins. Does the only three quarterbacks in this latest first round. Yeah. Going to be very interesting because we know what the giants listen one thing. Dave Gettleman has made very clear he does not feel beholden to tell us his plan. And so I don't feel overly beholden to believe. A lot of what we're hearing coming out of the giants can't because if you've got a guy who's basic messages trust me, I got this. Well, then we understand he doesn't feel like he has to tell us the truth. So as we hear these things. Coming out. We also understand this time of year is about deception to an extent it's trying to manipulate the draft order trying to manipulate the opinions of certain players. So that you can try and put yourself in the best position to get the guys you ultimately want. So it makes it difficult to try and read the tea leaves it is although I have to say on cattlemans behalf. He said all of last spring saquon Barkley is a generational talent with the second overall pick. And that's where he went. Look, I think we all agreed. There has to be a quarterback in the giants future. Whether it's at six or seventeen trade now Cleveland, but it would not surprise me in the least if Dave Gettleman waited until the second or third round to take a quarterback this Dave Gettleman, he created that created, but he he made the term a more of a vernacular in the NFL draft hog molly's when he was the GM of the Carolina Panthers. He loves the big guys to hog mollies. And let's be honest. This draft is going to be decided outside of Kyla Murray. More than anything else about the big defensive lineman in this draft. The hog Molly is on the defensive side of the ball. So depending on your draft grades for your quarterbacks you could take one of those at six and then a quarterback at seventeen it all depends again on your on your draft great. If twain Haskins is highest on the board and draft grades. You don't pass that up. If you have a Dwayne Haskins drew lock. And whatever other quarterback equal in grades. You know, maybe use that seventeen pick baby can trade it up somehow to get one of those guys as I said, this always comes down to grades. Do. You have a choice amongst grades. Are you close enough in quarterbacks where if you don't get one you try and get the other? But we'll see we'll see, you know, one of the biggest changes in from the last two this for Mel was they had the patriots taken Daniel Jones a quarterback, and this one I serve Smith junior the tight end from Alabama going, and that would not be shocking at all you have really three out of the top tight end Hopkinson the kid from Iowa teammate, Noah Fant, and then Smith junior all three likely to go in the first round a three first round tight end to on the same team come on. And what would that tell you as we saw? The patriots jump into the first round and take a running back and Sony Michelle at the end of that. And now to see in the next year three tight ends going. We've talked about this. However, you want to split it. Last year were Quinton Nelson. Went in the top ten in the draft as an offensive guard. We saw roquan Smith going the top ten as a middle linebacker. The middle of the field is worthy. NFL is being built right now. And other teams are starting to catch up to what the patriots have done for years. The way that we've seen teams export that specific area and three tight ends in the first round would hammer that home not denying that. They are guys that are certainly probably more talented than usual tight end groups. We're used to seeing but it's also about value. It's why you see running back taking it to overall by the giants last year. I mean, the other thing is I think they're more interior linemen in this first round then quarterbacks right? Like, a not tackles guards and centers. There are more of those according to males latest mock than there are actual quarterbacks being taken which would be very unusual. So the top five in this new draft that Mel kiper put out is Kylie Murray. Number one of the cardinals Nick both the D N number two to the forty Niners. Number three. Josh Allen the outside backing backer pass rusher going to the jet number four Cornyn Williams. To the raiders and number five guy making a pretty big jump. Devon white going to Tampa Bay at five in the last mock draft he was number eleven to the Bengals now in mel's draft. He is sitting at number five number six twain Haskins seven Joon Taylor. The offense attack from Florida going to Jacksonville sweat, the D N going to the lions at eight Sean, Gary the D N going into the bills from Michigan and TJ Hopkinson. The tight end going to the Broncos at number ten. Here's here's what I wanted to talk to Mel about and one of the issues that I have laid on me big fella with with this draft comes, you know, some some point and one of them is there are few prospects in new first round projection who are making their debuts because of their combine performances. There are four guys who have jumped into mel's first round who weren't out there before again based on the combine combine performances. I don't understand that. I don't I don't understand that. If you wanna say. You looked at the combine to go back and look at tape of them. But to say, they're combine performance jumped them up that doesn't compute to me. Well, I think that's I think that's the assumption though, is because of their performance you went back and look and that. That's fair. That's why I want to ask them. How did this? Make you go back and study them more. Because if you're just basing things off the combine I got a real issue with that. Yeah. I I don't think you would do that or teams. But at the same time, you look at the positions of the majority of the players that would be involved in that. And I think this could be true for teams as well. It's interior offense. It is right. Three interior offensive linemen Terry McLaren the wide receiver, but when it comes to interior offensive lineman. You wanna talk about an area where the scouting grossly lags behind to actually great and overall draft. It's a difficult area for a lot of people to see and understand because you don't have the benefit of a lot of stats. You don't have the benefit of even the combine members necessarily always translating to production. So when those guys go and they paying and they flag in the model somewhere for what they do at the combine. And then you go back and spend some more time looking at a guy like Lindstrom who wasn't going to be a big name. He wasn't like, you know, Gary bradberry from North Carolina State won the Remington award this year. Like that guy was a stud Boston College was a middling. Okay. ACC team this year. So Lindstrom wasn't getting the credit. He deserved even being as good as he is. So you go back now, and even these NFL teams, maybe we're late to the party on some of these guys all of a sudden start giving them an extra. That's why I want to ask I just wanna make sure with Mel that because I'm just reading from the combine performance, and again, let's put a name. To those you mentioned McLaren the wide receiver who is one of the others. Chris Lynch reminder, you just mentioned from Boston College now. Number twenty one to Seattle Eric McCoy interior linemen going number twenty two to Baltimore. Right and the Garrett bradberry. The Senator from North Carolina State who is you mentioned one the Remington award is the best center in the country number thirty one to the LA Rams where they have an aging center, and John John Sullivan. And that was that was one of the things have been saying for the Rams the last couple of years that dynasties been built on the interior. If you land a guy like that good, Lord or you winning out it is. So we'll see how that plays out. Now, the one thing that I find interesting he he has drew lock the third quarterback Mel dozen his latest mock going thirteen in Miami. I'm telling you don't take out Denver at ten in Cincinnati of eleven in play for quarterbacks. I mean. Yeah. Denver made the play for Joe flacco. But John Elway has messed this up a couple of times with all due respect. I mean, that's just outside of getting Peyton Manning. He has not figured out the quarterback spot there at ten they might be in play for quarterback. And you have Andy Dalton with his situation with the Bengals and his contract situation. I, you know, I think that there's a really good chance that they could be in play with a quarterback there, by the way, by the way, Mel kiper Jr's mock draft not the biggest item related to the draft this week. That will have news for you guys. What more on that coming up later? This week
Ryan Tannehill traded from Dolphins to Titans, shaking up the QB situation in Tennessee
"Good. And now, we don't know what the plan is. They have finally given up on Ryan tannehill who had seven years to prove that he could be a franchise quarterback. Now, he's out. Ryan Fitzpatrick is in with a two year contract reported base value of eleven million dollars that is peanuts is starting quarterback contracts. Go, but we don't even know whether he's going to be the starting quarterback. He may be the placeholder for whoever they end up within the draft and they had to sign somebody. They had to have somebody who was the plausible starter. So it is an obvious going into the draft that they're going to draft a quarterback because then at number thirteen they're going to get leapfrog by somebody for the quarterback that they want. So smart move to have Fitzpatrick smart move to have a guy who has played. Well. A he gets criticized a lot. But my God early last year he was spectacular. And he's better than whatever other options they had on the roster. So now, they have a bird in the hand. And we'll see what they do on draft. Yeah. That's right. I mean, there wasn't a lot of options out there in free agency wants city Brett teddy Bridgewater said no we knew they weren't going to bring back Ryan tannehill. So to what you're saying. Yes, I think it was a very smart decision to bring guy in like Ryan Fitzpatrick gives them some wiggle room. I mean, they are at number thirteen in the NFL draft certainly can be in prime position to get one of these quarterbacks. Maybe not Kyle Murray. They're gonna have to make moves if they wanna get Kyle Murray and get up to the first second third pick probably. But you know, does it Dwayne Haskins? Does it drew lock? Are. They around a thirteen. I think there's a good chance. I wouldn't have said that a few weeks ago. But I think as I sort through the draft more and more there is a good chance that I think one of those two might be on the board Jacksonville at seven. I don't think they're going to be dropped in a quarterback there this year. It's really about the giants at six right now as the. The team. That's really the obvious team that might be in the quarterback conversation. And I don't think there's any guaranteed. They'll take a quarterback at six. So the dolphins. Yes. You get this because you got a guy. Okay. We got our starting quarterback. Now, they can figure out what they want to do with the quarterback situation going forward into their future. And the thing with the Ryan tannehill deal. Look I thought they were just gonna cut him and they didn't need to keep them around. There's no guaranteed money in his deal as it stood before Friday, but they found somebody who would take him in trade. But that team wanted the dolphins to pay part of his salary. Even though the dolphins were on the hook for nothing guaranteed. So audibly what the dolphins did they dumped Ryan tannehill. And they bought a fourth round pick in twenty twenty five million dollars because they're paying five million dollars of Ryan tannehill new salary of seven million fully guaranteed. The titans. Get a backup quarterback for two million dollars. And Ryan tannehill better than Blaine gabbert, they were gonna play gap pay gabbert a million and a half. Right. I'll pay two million to tannehill. Because if. Pantyhose healthy. He's not horrible. He's actually pretty good can't stay healthy. But you only need to be healthy one or two games in the full year. And think about it if they had a better backup last year. Chris when Marcus mariota missed a couple of games. There are a playoff team. No. Exactly, right, Mike. I'll sit here and say, I'm not so sure Ryan ten hills not better than Marcus mariota. They're very similar. So it makes sense for Tennessee to get a guy like ten and he'll be the backup quarterback. They're both very good athletes who play quarterback. That's what I would say about the two guys. I mean can run they can do the read option the bootlegs play action passes
