"Back when the lights are field and scored and then mazing -Ly Matt Bryant who's usually automatic from extra points hook the extra point pretty bad the truth you know I'm I'm sure that giants fans yeah I'm sure giants fans mean the giants have their own rookie cornerback in de'andre Baker whose whose learning learning the the NFL ropes a little bit so it's it's interesting these two teams development wise are really two teams that are not only with the rookie quarterback's but with the with the developing defense this is in that they're really two teams that are kind of in the same place I agree and then of course we have the link the cardinal link through your defense with James richer what are your thoughts on better well it's interesting I was just about to ask you your thoughts on Becher because he he's he he he's become kind of a lightning rod here in New York because the defense you know he came to New York with quit the reputation of being a really aggressive defense it's of coordinator of having a coordinated defenses in Arizona that that played really really well I think we're top ten defenses for for three years there's running in last year's giants defense was bad this year's giants defense is young and there's potential there it's kind of an improving unit but we haven't seen the kind of defense that bet your head in Arizona we haven't seen that in New York there's some who might wonder was he just a guy who happened to be gifted with some great players in Chandler Jones and Patrick Peterson it to have those players or is he really a top notch defensive coordinator who just doesn't have everything needs yet questions I have some perspective on that because I in many other cardinal fans were disappointed when Todd Bowles left that Bruce Arians promoted James Becher who then had only had two or three years nfl extremes as an assist in coach both it was premature to you know promote him at the same time Ed eight Phillips was available Jim Schwartz was available and I don't know if it was Bruce Arians humorous or whatever is on like one a he's big he's high on developing his own coaching tree but amazingly tabs becher and I have to tell you don't look at the statistics on the those defenses because Yoenis first year it was a continuation we had a very good defense nuclear thirteen and three in the regular season but the defense wasn't playing that great and to tell you the truth in the in the two of last regains got blown out at home by Seattle in week seventeen finish of each other on the sidelines it was an epic meltdown you know and I think we gave up forty nine points that day in Caroline of his in his Three four is he knows how to sell out to defend the run so he can do that but the and the problem with his defenses in Arizona for from that point on were just you know very sporadic tackling. lot of missed tackles guys him which was kind of weird so I think the older players weren't really stepping up the way we hope Patrick Peterson as wanted to tackle anybody in five years on that I don't know if that will continue to be an issue with Vance Joseph but just turned soft and and unreliable on defense and the reason why the stats sort of Li- why is that the cardinals offense was you know David Johnson in two thousand sixteen were you know would go down on these long time consuming marches into the red zone and keep the ball away from the other offense so total yards and things like that may have worked in the defensive favor but I'm just not sure that bechers experienced enough to uh and Marcus golden we miss him he's you know he's a baller and we very upset that the cardinals I'm I'm not I was never I never really understood why Becher at his inexperience and I think he's just having eh our courteous and efficient hosts are ready to serve all of your islander needs and worries lighthouse hockey podcasts for New York islanders fans.

"Best if not one of the two best quarterbacks in the league get the guy some weapons. Absolutely. But they had so many injuries last year as well. And they've done a terrible job drafting until last year when they went to a new GM and Brian Gouda kuntsler. They everybody believes the class of eighteen for them was very very good draft. We'll see how that plays out. But they had a whole entire draft in two thousand fifteen that not one guy was on the roster not one. So we'll see how the Packers react to the bears young youthful approach. They're really good team. All right here, we go. Matt Nagy right now. We'll get to it the second. He is getting ready to speak down in Indianapolis. So as soon as he starts talking he's standing there. We will get it for you. And you can hear what the head coach has to say Ryan pace saying I'm gonna do whatever I have to do to get him the kicker that he wants and that Matt is putting a big premium on leg strength. You feels that is the most important quality other than obviously being able to shrug off struggles. But understanding with kicking at Soldier Field is about he believes starts with having the leg strength to cut through the wind coming off the lake. Cody parkey that was not him. He was known for his accuracy, he was not known for his leg strength. So I don't know if Matt Bryant makes sense at age, forty whatever it's got a big leg. I just don't see them getting Stephen cow ski. I don't see him leaving New England. I don't know why he would leave New England. So I would be very surprised if he was a guy that they ended up putting in their on their roster at five five and a half million..

"Lights on it do. Yeah. That's how the clippers. The lakers. That's the show. Yeah. Okay. One more boys. One more before Carmen year, come down for cross talk as we know. A good kicker is certainly hard to find. But it seems as if the Atlanta Falcons are ready to risk it Matt Bryant who will be forty four next season said that the falcons told him that they plan on releasing him shot or no shot. Matt Bryant should be the bears next kicker. He can't he can't be any worse than what we had. But that's not what you're looking for. He was one of the most reliable kickers in the NFL last year. He hit ninety five point two percent of his field goal attempts. He went twenty of twenty one he made four or five from fifty yards or longer. He hit thirty three of thirty five extra point attempts. I think I heard I did hear as a matter of fact, I heard Tom Waddle who played the game in the NFL Bryant missed three games. He only played thirteen games. I was wondering why he only at twenty one field goal during. Yeah. That's not a good thing for a kicker to have a hamstring. What Waddell said his kickers aren't supposed to miss games. Kickers are not supposed to miss games. They don't get it. That's a fair point. You should be healthy. They're not supposed to miss games who think about it. His two previous years in sixteen. Thirty seven field goal attempts in seventeen he had thirty nine field goal attempts. He was thirty four for thirty nine for eighty seven percent last year. He was twenty four twenty one. What's going on? Not get in. Atlanta Falcons were tremendous offensive team this year. Right. You would think he'd get were. They just not in field goal range. You just decided not to try that often. It's a no shot. He did miss two extra points this year. They're going to have different kicker. I just don't think. So I will point.

"Look at it. There's already reports the Matt Brian is expected to be somebody that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers interested in obviously the bucks have had their own trials and tribulations with kickers certainly the Roberto Aguire days, Matt Brian actually started off his career starting up ahead an early part of his early career with made buck nears. And so I think this is certainly worth considering if the Cowboys because again this position matter so much aired on periscope says I like bread, but he's not trustworthy. Robert on periscope says you only fifty three spots can't waste on the kicker. I think Roberts addressing somebody had floated the idea of having both on the roster. It's been a long time since the guy was too kickers on their Oster. I'm not a proponent of that Gary on a log on the Facebook live feed says Maher will mature and settle in. There is a live and thought to that maybe Brent Maher had some rookie struggles. And maybe he'll be back are maybe he'll get to a proper form. We did see stretch time when he was super consistent super reliable before he got. A little bit rattling beings kind of change to a degree. But you have to consider it you have to consider. You don't have this money option that you've had in seasons. Pasaden- Bailey, Stephen Watkins, combating that point on on Facebook live says he'll mature he's twenty nine years old again, it's not like Brett Maher is this twenty two year old, you know, young player that has a lot of time to develop a great point by Stephen that he is a little bit of an older player. And so you can't necessarily trust that he's on the same career aren't that? A lot of other guys are there's a lot of proponents for finding a player fresh college, maybe drafting somebody and other undrafted free agent. Dan Bailey was but you have to look at this. You have to look at this long and hard because this is going to be such a pivotal season for the commerce as we've discussed Jason Garrett and during a contract year first year off of quote, entering kellyn more. There's a lot to look at this. And you're a team if you're the Cowboys you don't have a first round draft pick. I wrote about this today of blog on the boys dot com. The last time that the Cowboys did not have a first round draft. Pick was not a lot of fun. You'll remember that in two thousand and nine thanks to the trade for ROY Williams and other receiver the Cowboys did not have a first round draft pick. And in fact, they traded away their second round draft pick on the draft. Again. The Cowboys did not have a first or second round draft pick ten years ago, and they put together a draft it consisted of twelve picks in two thousand nine that was quite gross. If you have been watching the Cowboys for the better part of a decade at the very least you'll remember that the two thousand nine draft class for the team is one of the worst in franchise history twelve picks and not one to really be proud of. And that kind of goes with today's theme considering drafted David dealer to be sort of secondary kick kick off specialist and deep ball kickers specialist. And what have you times really changed over the last ten years in the NFL and the Cowboys, and I think we'd trust. Now more that we did then the Cavs can do damage what their late around picks McClay is really been great architecture. Finding contributors for the Cowboys in the later rounds and the. I that has been the second round draft pick for the Cowboys in recent years as really started kind of you know, calm down a bit. You look at their second draft picks, and who they become two thousand fourteen DeMarcus Lawrence two thousand fifteen obviously Randy Gregory has really rebounded two thousand sixteen. Jalen Smith two thousand seventeen today in two thousand eighteen Connor Williams who seems to have a bright future along the interior of the Dallas Cowboys offense of lying. So there's a lot to look there's a lot to be, you know, calmness..

"So the question is if it were up to you, would you rather have Brett Maher or Matt Bryant kicking for the Dallas Cowboys in two thousand and nineteen. It goes without saying that Matt Brian will beating more expensive option again because he likely is going to have suitors but the question from Aaron by the way on periscope. Why do they cut him? It's just a matter of impracticality for the Atlanta Falcons to Matt Ryan they have Giorgio Vecchio on the roster who who played well in Brian's absence this past season. You might remember Giorgio from his days with the open raiders as well. But we put up a poll about this on blocking the boys dot com. If you wanna go vote you can and so far fifty nine percent of the votes prefer Matt Bryant can. Kenneth on periscope wants to know how old is met Brian's Brian's been around a while he is been kicking in the NFL since two thousand and two with the Atlanta Falcons since two thousand and nine so he certainly has quite a plethora of experience when it comes to putting ball through the uprights and the NFL. But again, you know, it's it's hard because the Cowboys don't have a stable option like they have had in so many seasons before Christopher summers on the buses Facebook live. I'd rather have Bryant, and that kind of seems where people seem to prefer Ostra people seem to prefer excuse me. Because Brett Maher has people not feeling great. Brett Maher kinda Dan Bailey in two thousand seventeen struggled a bid down the stretch for the Cowboys. And he feels a little hard to trust. And that's not the worst thing in the world. Honestly, I mean, you know, you're going to miss kicks, and you're gonna miss extra point. So the NFL works these days, you're never gonna have somebody or it's really unlikely. The you're going to have somebody that Dan Bailey was for so long rarely going to kinda run into that guy. It's just money after money after money Justin tuck in Baltimore's kind of the best example of that. And certainly a rare bird, no pun intended there. Gary to Facebook live feed says I'd rather keep bread mater, and that's another option if you'd rather save two million dollars allocate that towards an extra defensive tackle towards an extra linebacker towards an extra safety. Whoever you want to put that money that is certainly one line of thought. However, and we talked about this with Dan Bailey release and all that that went on over, you know, six months ago now kickers matter and people roll their eyes to say, I don't care doesn't matter kickers, etc. Blah, blah, kickers matter as evidenced again, by the fact, I think about that the games of the Cowboys played in two thousand eighteen they should have been able to kicked a game winning earliest game or have you wanna look at that feelable in Houston against the Texans. Obviously, they punted how that game went down. They did. Have to kick a game winning field. The Detroit Lions they did have to kick a game winning field while against the Atlanta Falcons their game against the Washington. Redskins came down to a field goal kick. The Cowboys played so many one possession games that kicks and field goals and extra points are super valuable. You cannot just have any all generic kicker. I think right now Ben Maher is in the you know, maybe the bottom of the second third of NFL kickers right now. I don't think he's a top third congressional. He's even in the top half. And so you really have to consider what you wanna do there. Because that position is extremely important any position that can influence the number of points or team scores is so valuable and it's so critical. And that's why this question this subject is so interesting because it's not every day that kicker Brian becomes available. Although to be fair it was just last season. The Dan Bailey became available. Although that was in the finalisation of rosters not way early on in February. When teams could really take a cold hard..

"Tony Casillas, Tony, and I talked about the Super Bowl have a couch compared to the patriots Kellen Moore and a whole lot more, no pun intended. It is Wednesday February six two thousand nineteen it is hump day. So happy hump day to you. And we did not have a chance to July on Tuesday my apologies. If you can't tell I'm a little sick a tiny little cold that I'm nursing. And in Tuesday was the worst of it. But it seems to be over thank God. And so here we sit on Wednesday. And it is officially the season that did not change in a matter of forty eight hours, and we have a little bit of news from an NFL wide perspective today on Wednesday. It was announced by by himself. Really that the Atlanta Falcons would not be bringing back veteran kicker Matt Bryant in two thousand nineteen the falcons later confirmed this, and it's been kind of the biggest storyline in the NFL of the day that kind of speaks to the world of the NFL in early February that a kicker not being brought back is is a big storyline. This is big because as Cowboys fans, we haven't had to worry about these types of problems in a long time. It's just kind of been a foregone conclusion that Dan Bailey is going to be the guy. He's going to be the kicker. There's not going to really be any competition of any sorts. But that all changed when the Cowboys finalize their fifty three man roster last season. And Dan Bailey was released in favor of. Brett maher. Now, there are definitely a lot of Brett Maher feigns around Cowboys nation. I think we all know that. But the reality is Brent Maher certainly has his own flaws Maher's field goal percentage in two thousand eighteen his rookie season twenty eight year old plane on a rookie deal are on his rookie season. Excuse me. He was any point six percent successful eighty point six eight zero point six percent successful. Brent Maher was in his first season in the NFL. It's worth noting that in the last three seasons that Matt Bryant has not been below eighty seven point two percent when it comes to his field goal. Accuracy. That's quite a difference meant Brian only missed one field goal last year. They're definitely going to be a lot of teams who are going to be interested in Brian's services. I think you look at the Chicago Bears, obviously would have with Cody park. You could be very interested. Maybe in the Minnesota Vikings who signed in Bailey after the Cowboys cut him, but more than anything. I think. What should be mentioned because Brett Maher does have a bit of a deep leg. I think we all saw that at different times. And Brent Maher suddenly came in clutch for the Cowboys. He had the big game winner against the Detroit Lions, and coincidentally because we're talking about that Bryant had the game winner in Atlanta against the falcons, although he obviously did hit one off the upright in crunch time against the Washington Redskins after that snap and fraction. But looking where were mar struggles. Specifically, it's between attempts of forty and forty nine yards. Brent Mars attempting the field between forty and forty nine yards as a little rough for Brett Maher. He went seven of eleven their last season's four misses between forty and forty nine yards for whatever reason Brett is just a little bit more accurate from beyond the arc so to speak now in that range from forty to forty nine yards. Matt Brian has actually been pretty solid in the last three seasons. He is twenty-five of twenty six between forty and forty nine yards. So Matt Bryant kind. Has the range that Brett Maher struggled with down to a pretty accurate level? And again, this is new territory for the Cowboys because they have not had to consider different picking options, and they kind of lucked themselves into Brent Maher last season..

"I don't I don't think it's going to be oh Matt Bryant retiring, and that's it. You know, breaking news. You read it on Twitter. Matt Matt Bryant's retiring, I don't think he's gonna go out like that. Yeah. I think that there is a case that can be absolutely made that he deserves more. But you know, one thing I've learned about the falcons a lot of NFL teams that they really don't tend to get sentimental, and, you know, look at Matt Bryant's contract in the way that it set up is that he can get out of it whenever he wants to. I mean, there's really no like. The team has announced every year. He has an out every year, you know, hard penalty, you can look at the bit a little bit of money if it decided to cut him, but at the same time, his cat next year is four million dollars m my get right now is that they cut the deal to kind of get him back in the building for the season that they all kind of go much differently. Am I big question is, you know, considering the fact that he did have the health issues this year and again to hold him out for a few games? You know, it wasn't a it wasn't a loss season. So we don't really think about it as much but about if it really was kinda year we bought it was gonna be and the team was not able to find a replacement in costs them or two really close games playoff standing. If you're the team, you might think. Ooh. You know, we love that Bryant. He's been there for ten years. He's a wonderful kicker concede. At least he's a wonderful kick. Her. But at the same time, we we really are kinda curious where his health is going because he did struggle with health this year. And you know, it's not like most kickers really cannot cake fifty seven field goals. You know, fifty seven yard field goals every game the same time. It's like you had the situation where you wonder exactly the money's gonna be there for him next year. You know, I mean, there's one million dollar cap it. So I mean, they're going to say about three million they cut him. But you know, if you decide to retire that money would go, obviously, he they detain would recoup it, but a hundred curious to see what can happen. I don't I think the fact that Georgia Vecchio played so well in his absence makes it more difficult position. I think they didn't have anybody obviously bring him back. He's back, but we don't have to retire. The team's gonna wanna give Vecchio the permanent job. I mean, they have very similar career trajectories. Bryant bound. Around win the NFL and other leagues for awhile before he found that kind of home in Tampa Bay. And then he came to Atlanta, obviously, made the bulk of his career made him who he really is. So sometimes kickers take time to develop a maybe that's Vecchio is gonna head to bounce around the league, really find his footing, no pun intended. And they come to land in really be the heir apparent to Bryant. Because obviously they can't carry two kickers on the roster in a season where they're gonna wanna have everyone can have to really make that push again..

"Dogma Hollick year and par a happy new year to you as we are about to celebrate or are celebrating the new year nail in the sky gets uploaded. Welcome to the Hollick post game podcast. I'm your host court Woodruff, and you know, New Year's new beginnings. And we are saying goodbye to a falcon season two thousand eighteen is in the books putting this on the shelf, and now swear, and we are, you know, preparing to get to a point where we can look ahead and try to be optimistic for the future. If you know me, and you know, this podcast, you know, that's the brand here. We really do try to be optimistic and try to look for that silver lining wherever we can find it. And you know, it's just one of the difficult things about a bad season as that you can kind of get a bit dismayed in the discord. But you know, shut my friends. Let's try to look ahead to the future. And we've got plenty to talk about. In that regard. And I enjoyed the course by none other than Evan burchfield of the Hollick Evan. Thank you so much for joining us and how're you doing as we transitioned into those nineteen. Thanks for having me on again, Corey doing great hope everyone has a happy new year and starts off the year. Right. And yeah, let's talk about this Alcan's in books finale. Yes. A game that they were once down seventeen zero and one which is a very non falcon thing to happen. Usually we don't have big comebacks against teams like this. But usually what happens the other way around were up by a lot. And we end up, you know, throwing the lead in the trash can. But I think that there is a lot that you can look at the scheme and the optimist about the be able to think after a really tough season finish it on a strong note. And it didn't drop them a lot in the traff rankings. So they might miss out on you guys because they were able to win this game from where they originally were. But sometimes it's hard to control that and you have to take it. How it comes so Evan? We're a couple of things you saw on Sunday that made you feel. All the mystic for the future. I think like what you said about the comeback. It's not something where used to where usually on the other end of blowing the lead, obviously. But I mean, you pretty much Saul Matt Ryan have you know, you had a pretty good game. Yet is I ever I think I read somewhere that was the first ever quarterback reception per touchdown or whatever for the falcons or in south consistory, or whatever. So that was pretty cool to see Julio was, you know, back to his normal self like he's been doing all year. So that's pretty exciting. And then he, you know, finished off the year as the with the most reception yards this season, the whole NFL. So I mean, the offense is cranking, and you know, defenses whatever, but it was the bucks and it was the final game. And it's you know, it's hard to really put a lot of stock in anything. But it was. A good. It was a good win. And I love how it ended with Matt Bryant kicking the win the game against the team that he spent you know, decent portion of his career with. Yeah. It was good ending to the season. Even though there's no playoffs or anything. It was. It was a great send off I think into twenty nineteen. Yeah. I think those are good points. You bring up Matt Bryant. And I do wanna talk about him just for a second. He's still on contract with the team next year. He was very very reliable all season. The only missed one field goal that was a belief from like fifty seven out didn't go in or not think he made that one. There was another is another long field goal where they just he just didn't have the distance on it because of his kind of his ailment with his leg..

"As we countdown to kickoff of week eleven and our tour continues at Mercedes Benz stadium where the falcons at four and five take on the Cowboys at four and five as well. And here is Jeff Zell Jeff good afternoon. How you doing? I'm doing just great. The falcons were doing great until last week. Yes, they are really Dr Jekyll mister high team. Let's say this. This is an elimination game. Let's face that whoever goes before and six is Al Dallas is not one two in a row this year last week. They got their first road win. Now, we're talking about the jecklin high chain. Yes, the Jones our Dr Jekyll against the NFC. They play with precision like doctor there too and one against the NFC south there too and one against the NFC east, in fact, if they win today that means you're Rian wanted to see NFC, but you know, what they're Mr Hyde and all the worst impulses come out against the AFC. Oh and three they lost at home to the Bengals. And they lost on the road to the Browns. That game was the Browns. Biggest. Since two thousand fifteen niche ran all over them. He hawked pass all over them. Twenty carries one hundred seventy six yards and a touchdown. Three catches thirty three. Touchdown. You better bet reg, it's going to be as equal Elliott left Ezekiel Elliott, right? Ezekiel Elliott up the middle Ezekiel up down everywhere. That's what they're going to do today. Now, there's no Dion Jones, even though he's off. I are. He's still an active talk is get Matt Ryan back. You will kick Georgia to Vecchio was great in his absence. And remember the Cowboys do not have Sean Lee. But remember last year? The south is the Cowboys played at Mercedes-Benz at the time time of year and the falcons really turned it around in that game. I was getting lost. Devante freeman. They had a great game. Cowboy started with a very impressive scoring drive in the falcon shut him down after that. Yeah. They won twenty seven seven last year. And obviously that was a springboard in the second half. Again, both teams no margin for error. Here. You talked about Ezekiel Elliott coming off a one hundred fifty yard rushing day in a touchdown. But Amari Cooper has certainly giving them another guy to balance things out as much as you said, they might focus on Zeki will Elliott Amari Cooper in this one, you know, going up against another former Alabama receiver Julio Jones how much of a spark do you think there is Cooper in his new home? Well, obviously with land is secondary. It's always a potential for someone to have a career game. Let's face it. I mean, both safeties are out Ricardo Allen this out. And we know that the falcons aren't near as good without their quarterback on defense Kiana dealers out. They don't have the Jones playing in the middle. True flop and offered have really had a lot of really bad games. These two guys with the top two picks a couple of years ago. True funding Dont'a Pro Bowl level last year. He got hurt. He just hasn't been. In the same coming back. I mean, you're right. I think they will try to establish the runs. Remember the falcons really shutdown Barclay with the giants and they've shut down Adrian Peterson with the Redskins. But then shut came back and just kill them. The running back out of the back sealed every week has career days against the falcons. And so we went to secondary going Amari Cooper. We'll be something the Cowboys will do. So they're going to have to weapons and how they mix it up. And what they can do is obviously like it did against the Redskins. They look great. Now, we got fourteen points on the roads with team that six and three they play like did against the Browns. They're gonna lose back to back road games though for the Cowboys coming off the emotional win last week over Philadelphia. You know, how do they respond? Well, you know, you always wonder about that. Because you so, you know, hey, things are pros. They both four and five. This is a do or die elimination game. They gotta get up. But on the other hand as you said they had this emotional win against division rival the eagles human beings. And look there's a lot of controversy in Atlanta. This week. I don't know if nationally how are you guys are on it. Let's laundry Campbell came out and said he's been new quarterback on defense with a Ricardo Allen out. And he said, hey, I think a lot of guys didn't give full effort because they took the Browns for granted that it's just a talking point this week. And I I give kudos for that. 'cause Atlanta it's a sports town where people can get away with not giving their all. And the sports media is very very meek doesn't do anything not like New York or Boston or San Francisco or Detroit or Chicago, really anywhere. And he came on he said and he didn't back down. And it was clear that there were guys that did not put forth the kind of effort that they should've had out there. They were not up to the game say how could they not be up for a game? It was an elimination type of game when you're four and four, but they weren't up for it. So you can never guess what's in the heart. If somebody remembers way back when the falcons were were three hundred five hundred or I said to you. Hey, the road back when the two home games. Against you know, at what gets the giants and the other game against the buccaneers. Then split on the row. Now, you would've said if they do that we're happy with that. But then you saw the play great against the Redskins. So you're now expecting more and they just completely lay in Eric against the Browns. So now, you're disappointed, but it'd been backwards. They lost a close game to the Redskins. And then beat the Browns you'd say, okay. They're on their target. If they got to win this game to get five five and they have New Orleans on the road on a Thursday. They have one more loss left. You can't expect to get in any worse than ten and six. So they play Thursday on the road that should be one game where they say we might not win this game. One more thing. Obviously Matt Bryant you said he's back today. Giorgio tobacco Vecchio is an active with Brian's age, despite the fact that how good he's been do. They view Vecchio as the successor. You know, I really don't think. So they look at it that way because if they did they might have just kept Vecchio going. I mean, the thing is how do you hide a second kicker. Do you keep the second kick or you don't do it in a fantasy young? You don't do it in the NFL either. So what what's going to happen? I mean, he has looked great right? You don't feel any sense of diminishing returns when you have to Vecchio in there. But the reality is not Bryant's one of the greatest kickers in the history of this league. He's been unbelievable falcons. They've got him under contract. They're paying him. Certainly think of Matt pliant can't go they're gonna wanna use Vecchio. That's why I think they didn't just cut tobacco. They've they've got a kick on me and acted. How often do you see that? With a backup kicker stays on the inactive list because they know he'd be snatched up, but certainly Bryant can't go. Yeah. You go to Vecchio, but the Matt Bryant, you know, as long as she's able to get out there and kick he hasn't missed a field goal this year. Well, he helps being indoors Jeff. We'll touch base after kickoff. Thanks for checking. Thank you. Bye. Jeff Zell in Atlanta Cowboys and falcons getting ready to go. Also, another half hour away, the buccaneers and the giants the G men looking for back to back wins and Mike Mancuso checks in from MetLife stadium. Mike good afternoon and high rich, I think you and I are ready to go and give good effort. Right. I hope so. If not we might not be back. Anyway, just you know, weatherwise just to kick kick it off with this rich. It's, you know, low forties not much wind at this point. If it was a four o'clock game. It would be different. So conditions are pretty good for this game between the giants and Tampa Bay. I would think so and a lot to get to in this one the giants coming off the win in San Francisco a much needed one. But two franchises really struggling right now and desperate and you have a big injuries Levada David out today for the buccaneers which may be opened up a little more than the passing game. Especially for the tight end in the giants. You would think, but at this point, you know, whether or not whoever's playing or not playing I'm looking forward to seeing Jason Pierre Paul go against his former team, but you look at the numbers in the nine games. Tampa Bay is given up thirty points plus in six of the games. So, you know, whoever they've been dressing whoever's missing this defense has. Not played. Well, he played well last week and losing to Washington sixteen to three but for the giants, and I I might be off by a point or two but whenever the giants offense onto LA. Manning is played against the team that on average allows thirty points a game. They seldom reach thirty points on the offensive event. Having said that I think the giants do have significant amount of confidence coming off that Monday night game with the last minute drive to to pull it out. Get them their second win. And I think they're really concentrating on trying to win a home game four at home. They haven't really been dominant home team since this building opened up in twenty ten. In fact, you have thirty four and thirty four so yes, I think that the bucks defense poses opportunities or presents opportunities for the giants. But you have to remember the giants and their offensive line which played decently last week away management sacked thirty two times. And that is a staggering number. Almost a staggering is the amount of turnovers. Tampa Bay has so. You know, who knows where this game goes as you mentioned the sax adding up and the offense of lion being what it is. And you also mentioned Jason Pierre Paul coming back to face his former team that was a big storyline throughout the week. It seemed it was a little animosity or a little tension between the two sides is the way it ended. He was just shipped off. And that was it goodbye. Thanks for everything. We'll see soon and here he is today. Yeah. And you know, don't let the door on the way out. But I I think though, he, you know, he JP did have a little fun with that, you know, talking about how much he respected Eli manning. And but that he was coming after. But he made it clear to heal. I was one of the guys that texted him, and they reached out after the trade and he's had a good year. I mean, you know, they'll wind them up all over the place. But I think that the giants, and they sold their have to really be prepared because I think AP's going to be really pumped leaving an impact on this game today. So I think the giants would be wise to watch out for him. And you know, what's interesting is you do your homework for the gaming easy with the bucks done on offense piling..

"I think they'd be smart to keep them in the year particular with Brian health you how he continues. But right now, you don't need that other roster spot for anybody. It would just be someone in active on game day. So you might as well keep tobacco make him an active on game day. Bryant gets healthy and see how Bryant does for the rest of the year. If he's the same guy, we know in you know, that going forward he's done do that next year. It makes it difficult to keep the roster. Spot open for a second kicker, but at the same time, I think having him in the system next season keeping him around the offseason you allow Bryant to figure out whether he wants to continue to play. I think for him. He has an out every year in that contract to decide if he wants to retire. I think he may still wanna play if he knows the team is going to be really good next year. Again, if we went to a Super Bowl somehow in two thousand twenty and Matt Ryan wasn't our kicker. It would feel really weird because it's like he's in there for the entire time. And you've wanted to be a part of that want to have a really good year next year if when everybody's? Healthy knock on wood. Like you want him to be there? You want him to be the kicker 'cause to like to you a lot. He's awesome. That's like you wouldn't feel quite right? But at the same time if Matt Bryant continues to make that slow down hill with his age, which is very natural. It'd be very understandable considering where he is. And you get to a point where you know, tobacco's to like the Bengals or something or the Texans or somebody doesn't have a great kicker in is like they're great kicker for the next ten fifteen years. You kinda like the falcons miss that. It's only the can't find another picker you get one in the draft or you can go maybe look for somebody else. But I don't know it just feels like he showed a lot of promise in that giant twin, and he made some pretty long feels old guy who had just gotten in the system, and he's kinda mayor with the falcons what want on special teams. I I'm hesitant to let him go. Now, I think there should hold onto the year Harry to kickers and then go in the nineteen bigger things out with Vecchio under contract for that entire season. So. Oh, you know, the only way he's leaving. If is if you want to leave. But you know, we'll see what they'll do. It's the falcons they never exactly what you are expecting. But it's always it's always the move. The falcons are going make that you know, as we wind down or conversation here. Let's talk about the season as a whole we've talked a lot about the reflection of what we've seen. Let's try to look into the future though bit. Where's your honest assessment of where the same goes like if you had to look and say all right from Sunday's game at Washington to the season finale against Tampa Bay where where are the falcons it?.

"Giorgio tha Vecchio was outstanding in that giant's game for guy that just gotten signed is the most successful kicker in the NFL since I guess the nineteen sixties to just come off come off being a free agent in sang with team hitting those kinds of Phil goals. I think the team has not cut him for a very specific reason, which is because they got him on contract in two thousand nineteen right now it's a two year deal with Matt Bryant ailing and him being forty three and kicking fifty yard or in hurry his hamstring. We think. He'll be back this week. We don't know that for sure I think the fact that he's not that the fact that the tobacco villain the roster indicates for sure it is status doubt this week. But also at the same time. It's like the falcons you had this guy come out really, really good. Like, he does a really good job as a proven kicker and your other kicker is in his mid forties. Almost what do you do there? I mean, do you let money go earlier than anticipated you run with tha Vecchio? I mean, do you let to ECU finish the season put that Bryant on our if things are specially are not going the way that you would hope in see if he could really be your future because again, the kicking in the NFL is really bad unless you're really good at it. I know that sounds like the most obvious statement. But it's like if you're not good at kicking. If you are good at kicking great teams. Don't have that kickers is one thing the constant. If you have a good kicker typically means there's a good team. Team that new to get back with kicker. So tha Vecchio could be that guy for the next ten fifteen years. You really think -lanta as much Matt Brian has been crucial to this franchise or you let the money man, go out the way he wants to let Vecchio stick around this year and go elsewhere next year on Roma to kickers next year. There's just it's difficult for them to be in because a Matt Ryan health. But what what would you do if you without? Yes. So I mean, this has been a topic that's sort of been like elephant in the room. No one's really talking about it so far. But it's it's there, and it's it's you know, we've got address it soon. I mean, there's absolutely a kicker controversy in Atlanta. And so the way I see the rest of the season shaping out at least, I think we're going to let Matt Bryant rest as long as he needs to you know, recuperate as long as he needs to those soon as he tows in quid. Hey, I'm one hundred percent ready to kill. I think we're gonna bring that. Right back in Giorgio has been amazing. And it's really great that we managed to find someone who really, you know, saved our skins this last game. And he definitely has the resume to be the guy to carry us forward in the future. But you know, right now with all that Matt has done I think he's still he's still the the guy he still money into Matt starts to see a significant decrease in production. I don't think you know, we'll give that the reins over Georgia just yet. But I can actually see us carrying two kickers next season because of a map Bryant's age, and and at this age, you don't know how quickly that decline come for some, you know, if you're Tom Brady does the client. We haven't even notice it yet. But you know, Matt Bryant's kicker, and it's his production has been great so far. But if once it starts to dip, I think Georgia will absolutely be the gotta take over if it's, you know, within the next season or to otherwise, you know, Matt Ryan guy, George go to another team and.

I don't really see it like he's a good player, but that's a position of straits sound like, oh, for them. Exactly. It's just it's just gonna suck without him there granted, but bottom line is their offense. It's not gonna change how they do things. Yeah, yeah. It'll be interesting though. You know the falcons they will be without Matt Bryant, their kicker in he's one of the most consistent kickers in the NFL always doesn't Tucker and look what happened.

So tonight we're going to see the return of kicker Giorgio too Vecchio for the falcons someone you play Becker baseball, the game. I'm not sure if that will make a difference or not.

"The big playability. The kind that you saw from George kit last week where he brought a Brock broke a long touchdown. He saw it from Vance two weeks ago with the long touchdown. I just love that about my tied in because if you're tiny goes off, you win the week. Yes, if you get if you get the Jared, cook, twenty eight points. Congratulations. That's what I loved about OJ Howard is that you know he might stink, but every time I might stink. But when he has a game, it's an eighty yard touchdown down the side. So and Vance McDonald, if you're not familiar with his days back in San Francisco, he did that several times in San Francisco where he had the long. Touchdown breakaway. So I, I completely agree with with the analysis. I would love to start Vance McDonald this week. All right. Those were starts of the week.
