"And that's just my vibe. But think about the chiefs 5 wins. They beat the packers without Aaron Rodgers. They beat the three worst teams in the NFC east, so the non cowboy teams in that division. And then week one against the browns where they came back and mahomes out of this world. So verdict is still out on Kansas City justifiably. Now the other game we did see Kyler Murray scratched, it happened. We kind of anticipated the line market line move certainly suggested that was coming and no Deandre Hopkins. And the niners just shot themselves in the foot couldn't recover a fumble, Arizona got every fumble got the face mask on fourth down when colt McCoy got stuffed, and then they just are not good, that good complaint from behind. And I also shot themselves in the foot with coaching decisions. Kyle Shanahan, not going for two to cut to 16. They hunted and Cardinals territory in the fourth quarter, down by three scores. So I'm not quite sure what Shanahan's thinking right there. Shanahan now 1121 and two ATS is a favorite in his career. So he's been really bad as a favorite, but as for the Cardinals, they're now 5 O on the road this year with all 5 wins by double digits. They've been an underdog four times this year. They've won all four times. All by at least 14 points. In fact, today is when it was actually the closest one out of the four. So big game for cliff Kingsbury coach of the year futures. Yeah, no, you know what? McCarthy was the favorite going into last week, but you wonder if that sort of where we're headed with Kingsbury? Because he really put on a clinic today. Well, the guy I bet on this week is I bet on Mike variable a 20 to one earlier in the week after Henry went down kind of hoping that they would put up a big they would put up a good record against that division. If they start having good if they start playing better on offense without Henry V will get credit for it. So I'm hoping that that tickets pretty live, especially after the win over the rams, but Kingsbury, you have to imagine as the favorite after winning without Kyler Murray. Yeah, I would say Kingsbury vable would be my two choices right now. I would make them the favorites. Just off the top of my head. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone can't think of it. But that's really impressive. Ray, let's talk about the Sunday Night game. Obviously, I was all about the rams. Completely no showed. And I'll tell you what, man, what we saw with Denver, what we saw with Arizona. And when guys go down, you get the kitchen sink from everyone. I mean, look how fired up Tennessee was at least in the first half. And we thought the rams would be ready to flip the switch, but they were just kind of going through the motions. Like they were playing those three bad teams, like they came in playing the Giants, the Lions and the Texans. It was sort of, but get the coaching credit and then collinsworth pointed out on the broadcast second half, he got Stafford on the rollout, and that was much more easier to create pass lanes. But getting stalling on offense and kicking field goals. Stafford entered the day first a total QBR by a pretty wide margin. You have to imagine we haven't gotten the QBR numbers yet for that game, but he's going to slip a little bit after that game. But got to give a lot of credit, but tight this defense on that one. The Titans defense has been pretty maligned all year, but they pressured Stafford all game. They forced him into that wild pick 6 at the beginning of the wild interception at the beginning of the game that helped set up the Titans, and then he throw another pick 6 right after that. But the Titans, they've now won four straight games as an underdog released three points with a 14 to do that in the Super Bowl era. And they're now 5 o'clock outright as an underdog this year. So they're basically the AFC version of the Cardinals. They're the first team since the 2009 Bengals to win their first 5 games of the season as an underdog. And Mike variable in his career, 16 and ten outright as a dog now, so variable as a dog really strong trends there. I like how collinsworth put it about that defense. Just like they just played tough. Like they're just hitch you, you know, we did radio this morning and everyone's just kind of dismissing the Titans, right? It's just like, one of those teams that just kind of get plays the first weekend of the playoffs and maybe the second weekend. But not really a true contender. Now the Derek Henry injury obviously matters. But it's about time and I'm looking at myself in the mirror. It's about time the Titans started getting some respect. I doubted them pretty heavily early in the year. I was on this podcast talking about how that division was. And I think I said the division winner would be lucky to be over 500. Clearly I was wrong about that. But I still have some doubts about the Titans though. There often did not look good today. Tanner only had a 140. Looked really there. They couldn't really run the ball, so I still am kind of doubtful in terms of what the Titans offense are look like the rest of the year. The rest of their schedules not that bad, 5 of the last 5 more home games rest of the year. We've got a couple against Houston. So I think the Titans, I mean, they're obviously going to win that division, and they're going to put up a gaudy record, but come play off time. I still have a lot of doubts with Tennessee. I'm curious to see where they are in a week or two on that offense. Because the running game was nonexistent. And I know the rams defense can be formidable. So let's see what it is against other teams. They had a couple of drops, that's not going to happen. So tan help played, okay, and then they played conservative in the second half just protecting the lead and wanted to get the clock moving. So it's hard to really assess them, but you could see the void that Derek Henry created with his absence for sure. The other afternoon game I touched on at charges eagles went back and forth classic situation and then the Chargers kick a game when he feel goal. Staley goes for it on fourth down to keep possessions of kicking a 50 something yard or something what everyone wanted Belichick to do when the Patriots hosted Brady and the bucks earlier in The Rain on Sunday Night. Yeah, I think he actually went forward twice on that final possession on fourth down. I love Brandon. I love when coaches do that. So I'm a huge brand and a sticky fan. That was also a big win for the public, 91% of the tickets, 97% of the money were on the charger, so in a week where a lot of underdog was one and the public didn't necessarily have the best week. That was one game that went to the public's way. Yeah, we didn't really touch on it. It sounded like the dogs barking all these upsets. That's good for the house. Let's just put it that way. All the parlays. But why not make it told me recently, you don't want too many of them because some knuckleheads will parlay them all. So you gotta be careful. You just want a couple pieces to the puzzle not to fit, right? You want a couple upsets, you don't want a bunch because there are guys putting three or four of them together in parliament. The favorites win, but not cover. Well, that's good, but you want some to lose outright for the teasers and the parlays. The money line parallels. But you don't want too many dogs that would outright because that amplifies all the money line, far less on the dogs, too. Absolutely. So you want a hodgepodge? That's sort of what they say. Trying to think, going to the early games, Houston Miami, let's put a bow on it. I said it on air. It was like one of the few things I said right was like, hey, let's pump the brakes on tie Rod Taylor being the savior. Yes, he's way better than Davis mills, but it's still okay to use Miami eliminator. It's still okay to lay points against the taxes with Miami. But then the two are scratched. That really caught me off guard. That line opened 7. It closed at four dolphins one by 8 of the line moved and end up mattering. I mean, I didn't watch that much of that game because if there's a bunch of NFL games, I would obviously be the one I would not want to watch, but they combined for 9 turnovers in that game. So really ugly game,.

"But he can't play quarterback drafted. But anyway i digress. Yes you do look at jalen hurts to right now matt jones so nick sabin evolve bill bell check went up to new england was big strong and stout they played on grass. They realized they had tom brady. They've changed over the years so my point to that. Max is mike tomlin's great. He's the hall of fame. Never had a losing record deserves a ton of credit. That doesn't mean you still can't learn any evolve so my next steps to the evolution for mike tomlin j. Well let me give you a great example like as greedy would say to me. Here's some sneaky big news. Here's might rebel. Who i think. Majid situation unbelievably. Well guys so tennessee. They're down seven points with four minutes and thirteen seconds to go. They moved the ball. Sixty eight yards score but more importantly guys they take three minutes and forty four seconds and in that drive it was a twelve play dry. It was a passes and they ran the ball four times. Now it's easy to do. We have derrick henry but the point is they gave the ball back to russel wilson. He only twenty four seconds left. And that's why the game went into overtime so answer your question. Jay will like mike variable good coach. I think he's still learning his way. That's outstanding clock management again. You compare that with mike. Tomlin has a half a year ago with a six foot five quarterback. All he has to do is sneak. It that to me is an area where they can get better. That's sounds like a fair point to me when we even get into that. That seahawks game with russell wilson. Because that was a shocker. To me the fact that were able to the titans were able to go in there and right the ship on the road against the team. We can put up a lot of points. A lot of people don't realize seattle lose a lot of games at home. People don't realize they will drop two games that year in the car and they had they had a ton of two hundred hundred drop games. I've gone to seattle many times my career in one. A lot of people think this seem for a while like the rams would always win in seattle and seattle always win or arizona. Seattle in wins. I got a question for you guys in any.

"Mcafee right happy birthday on for fucking twenty five minutes out to you matt. Thank you very basu's and then we got boston. Connor their boss boston car body. I don't take any crap from anybody. All right the hair flows. And let's be honest mack. Jones is going to be obese. Let's go that doesn't happen often. That's a big deal. Right they're both. Aj calling my mother the wrong name. Her name is sally and also you putting over boston corner. That never happened. Let's dive right into this mad. If you don't mind by the way we appreciate the hell out of you and you come on anytime you want. We'd be lucky to have you but let's talk about your time at the patriots right there. Bill ballot check widely regarded his greatest coach of all time. Whenever you leave there and go play elsewhere. Is there any noticeable difference or what is really the it factor is it just as big as brain and the way they operate. Or what is it. You think that has made new england so successful for so long. Oh hell yeah there. There's a major shift when you go from the new england patriots that just that system the protocol how they go about things like they're so meticulous on every detail even going back to offseason season. You know. I went to kansas city my first year and i'm thinking okay. Everybody does kinda similar regimen. You're you're going on the field. You run in two minute drills and like the middle of march you're doing all these different things and watching breaking down opponents that you might face early in the season. There's nothing like it and then all of a sudden you get to another organization. You're like whoa. That's not what we do. we go through basic. Install you kinda get there. I'm like are we gonna start watching like week. One opponent any point. No we'll get there when you know we'll we'll start that when we get there. It's just it's a machine and it's the preparation that they do and how they go about it man it's It's pretty incredible to be part of that organization and actually be in that building and then go elsewhere and understand that not everybody. Does it the same way. Hey matt why is check able to a house able to do that. Why didn't why don't other teams do that. They just can't be as successful. Like was obviously tom together. Kind of built that thing but why can't other teams duplicate that. Well it's hard because you know what not. Everybody has like the leadership. And also when you have tom brady for twenty years right. There's there's a standard of excellence. He's there obviously but the way the check goes about the week. Like on tuesdays these to call the quarterbacks and i wasn't privy to these like these meetings early on but he used to go in and then he allowed me to come into this meeting and he'd sit there and break down every dvd that they had on their defense right. This guy strengths. He's got long speed but he struggles and quickness. This guy has tremendous quickness. But you can pull the ball up on. He'd even breakdown safeties like if we had a shot on route with randy moss. One on one on safety. Just throw it up. Give him an opportunity to go. Make the player even talked about the dynamics of kevin faulk on a linebacker in doing stuff like that so it was an incredible meeting and then by the time you got like that wednesday and you went in and you started actually putting in the install. You understood how you wanted to attack a certain defense. Oh the preparation was far far beyond and above anywhere else i've ever been. You ended up at the titans. Obviously and i got a chance to witness your legendary self in warm ups or mustaches everything. Your aura is a beautiful one. I mean it is really a positive one in an awesome. One could even see from across the sideline there but braves. I mean what the fuck. Hey the tennessee. Titans have great roster right now in the ariza is it the arizona. Cars were that good. What is very abs. You think saying as a head coach to his team. Because we've obviously never been in a team or mike variable is the head coach. We can imagine what it's like. We can appreciate that. But what do you think he's saying to the team after what happened against the cardinals this past weekend. He's saying thank god. We don't have to block chandler jones again. It's the number one thing. My god did that guy. Whoever did his bicep surgery he came back strong. Why i'm telling you. The cardinals came out. They just they couldn't get anything going. Offensively for the titans and then chandler jones was just wreaking havoc all day long and on the other side of the ball. You got tyler. Murray just dissecting that defense for the tennessee titans he went out played. Well d andre hopkins i. They had a role in all day. Long so braves. It's one of two strategies right as a head coach. Go ahead and you completely land-based your team. Let them know how awful they are making feel worse or you kinda taper that back a little bit and you go any say look we gotta make these corrections and you've got a lot of corrections to be made but then you gotta basically bury the tape and move on it and move on to your next opponent say. This was the first game of the year. We never gonna look like that again but we got immediately make adjustments to get ourselves back on track so you played with mike brave men. You played for him when he was head coach at tennessee. And i've i've known rapes forever. Been around you guys together. You seem to be very very close like what was it like inside that your hey. I've heard stories. Well it's funny. You say that. Because i was planning on playing able so he got the head coaching job the year before he came out of tennessee state at my house the year he came in guess what they did. They released the cast dog. Are you kidding me. I go off the cash on joining year. Fourteen fired up my best buddy who i was in new england with. I'm in new england. We get traded to kansas city. I've known the guy forever. I know his family was next door neighbors with them in kansas city. So i'm like okay. I'm in a pretty good position here. I'm thinking to make the team right. Obviously i gotta you know go out there and perform but nonetheless austin's gets there and i get a phone call from john robinson. Go in guess. What by the way. You're we're going to release your. We're going to go a different direction. In able was nowhere to be found so at that point. I walk out of the meeting. And i'm like where's mike variable right now. Am i supposed to go find him in the bank. So i get my car. And i'm like driving home. I gotta make the call the white funny Change of plans. We just bought that house. But we're still we're gonna go another team and then he calls me. I'm like where the hell were you. Why didn't you. I was so pissed off at him. So i never actually got the play for variable. That's a.

"To be a game changer. In the nfl. The tennessee titans and buffalo bills confront virus related issues. Nfl kind of made it clear what they want to happen. And if you don't fall in line they're going to try to make your life kinda miserable while the protocol. This is key. sean. J wilbon jon allen on. Espn radio i'm trying to get you a good mood today. Man server now the tony winning all these black people finding these crates style just damn crate childs mail. If your insurance policy ain't up to date would you like ever decide yourself. That sounds like a good idea. Let me try that at least athlete. I mean it just by like the you got these fake people's out here with these. Why superwide crates. Nah we gotta have the same crates that we used to shoot all outside. We handle basketball. Jack put that on instagram. How we used to use a milk crate stop. He was attacked on on zag. Yoke on you. And now everybody want to run on creighton gaining got no insurance first of all now we deal with covert and we've got to deal with these issues this if somebody pull up to the to the hospital man sin they as right back out. We ain't giving you no medical treatment. You better go put some robitussin on you. How did you break your rib. How walking on milk crates okay. You can go out. You go personal your side. Then that's all you get you get some robitussin. I get the hell out of here. But yes you're right. There are enough issues in the world right now. And there's this one issue in the nfl that we have been talking about the last couple of days bar that mike issues now and always handled talking to the mike. Okay so the titans at this point right now as the vaccine as we've talked about is something. The nfl is trying to push with its players but they can't mandate it. I don't know why it agreed with the union. The union yet sign off on its macho again was with us yesterday. He'll be back with us again today. A little bit later on seven o'clock hour so we can discuss with him about where that's going because it does feel like more and more you hear from owners they wanna get there just so they can make sure private can get through a whole to get through a whole season. Especially if your quarterback is being a witch tennessee if nine players and coaches who have now tested positive for coverted including ryan tannehill. You can't afford to lose your starting point. We don't important they are in this league right. So that's why this has become a topic but not only ryan tannehill. Mike variable their head coach as well so they also i mean. There's several players on the reserve kobe. Nineteen lists and tannahill is now fully vaccinated but he wasn't Originally and this is back on july twenty eighth when he talked about getting the vaccine. Based on the rules you look around and Almost everybody's either been vaccinated or in process on currently process right now so That's where it's at but Be i think the nfl kinda made it clear what they went to happen and If you don't fall in line they're kinda try to make your life miserable for the protocol so You're seeing the trend is that most guys are back to make your life miserable. And we talked yesterday protocols with with mackenzie from buffalo. When he put the letter his fourteen grand out of his pocket because he didn't have a mascot and he's unvaccinated speaking of buffalo. And so. Yeah but but that's becoming an issue so bart as somebody who played in the league. Would you look at teammates that were essential including a quarterback and say to them why we can't afford to lose you because the rules would have you stay out longer or stay away from the team longer and we might miss again because you're not available to us to reflect leadership right and like you are very important. You touched a football every time. There's a big difference is a bigger difference between your starting quarterback and you're backup quarterback opposed to your inside linebacker in guy that's gonna fill in for him because you kind of rally around and support you know a backup in a position of defense or tied in or protect offense lineman by sliding and coverage. You can't protect when you're starting quarterback is an riders in a backup backups jordan love and that costs everybody their season and that is why. This is a problem at the quarterback position. You've got a couple of tannahill eventually. mark jackson. He's got twice. Think cam newton kirk cousins said someplace. Well he's not he doesn't want to do it. And if you're minnesota. I mean that's a team that that should expect to win. And you want your guy there. So i the ability to be saying nothing he'd been dylan for three years and he still has another year left at a higher bump to after next year but a washington post report. This week said only four teams. Four out of the thirty two are below the eighty nine percent vaccinated threshold and brandon. Bean is the general manager of the of the bills. He figured there one of the four and as we talked about yesterday they've got issues at cole beasley. Obviously another guy. That has been outspoken about it so it could open the door for the bills to face more whether it's suspensions whether quarantines just missing out missing key players if you miss a game how about that so with that in mind listen to something that sean mcdermott head coach of the bills in regards to the bill situation when it comes to there being below that eighty nine percent threshold when the numbers are the numbers. Some people are are in a better position potentially than we are at this point just looking at the on the surface the numbers that being said again. I go back to the personal decision. On this thing. And i respect our players positions in my personal opinion. It's right to get vaccinated. So are we so personal decisions. But my dad actually mora is. Am i using the proper. Turn hot coal oxymoron. Like you know. I respect their decision but i believe that it. It's it's more contradictory. Okay well you better word. It's contradictory but but but that's what i'm saying though right so like he doesn't respect it but he's trying to you know subliminal talked to him without actually saying like oh voluntary but mandatory. Ota's like yeah. This is attained with super bowl aspirations and it may not be a game. That's in the playoffs but it could be a game during the regular season that cost them division their costume hosting a game that increases their ability to win the super bowl. But have more importantly bart what about what could do in the locker room. You already hearing the head coach. Brennan beans also being pretty public about how i think. We're one of them. You're you're seeing players who aren't vaccinated putting stuff out on social media. How does that. I asked you this yesterday. I'm asking you again. You tell me that in the bills locker room with knowing what they could be this year that there's not going to be this thing about. Hey you're gonna compromise us having a chance to win. Forget that i'm not even going to with. That could not could not break up a team this. I'm not even going. That far off. I'm saying is if a guy like cold beasley ends up being the outbreak Player and he makes miss a game. And i miss a game check..

"And you want veteran presence and you went better decision making more experienced decision making. That's fine if you don't think you're a deep into the postseason kind of team You play the rookie. We've done this before. This exercise of quarterbacks taken in the top half of the draft over the last ten eleven years that essentially. If you don't play in the first five weeks of your rookie season and your name isn't patrick mahomes than you. Pretty much sucked. And that's why you didn't play. So i think personally. We will see justin fields in the first five weeks of the season. The other thought on this is their offensive. Line is a train wreck and fields is the kind of player that can make a bad offensive line. Not look better but can create opportunities for your offense to stay on the field where they gave the daltons just gonna get. Bum rushed but anyway Interesting decision. i don't think it's a a decision that a lot of chicago. Bear fans are happy about. That's for sure A couple of other Quick nfl news items. First of all. tennessee coach mike variable tested positive for cove in nineteen. Just so you know for those that were asking and i saw on. Twitter will was vaccinated or unvaccinated therein that tier of employees -e's in an nfl team were. They wouldn't be there. If they weren't vaccinated they were required to get vaccination coaches staff members et cetera so he was vaccinated but he got cove anyway to more. Nfl things To mention in them. We'll get to a lot of the stuff that ron rivera said on saturday following the cincinnati game That i thought was interesting. But first up is dak prescott. How about the schefter report from over the weekend schefter reporting that dak prescott quote. He's not fully back. He may not be back all season. Long closed quote. He's not suggesting that the shoulder strain that he has may keep them from playing but that he may not be fully back and fully healthy that changes the division. You know dallas goes from the favourite to the team picked to finish last in the division. If dak prescott is hampered on this year i mean who do they have a garrett gilbert bend nudo or dina cheer whatever. His name is Cooper rush. They're in big trouble without prescott big big trouble It would be such a disappointment and would be so funny and pleasant for all of us. If prescott isn't completely healthy a last thing real quickly before we get to the rivera stuff is this. Nfl top one hundred list. Terry maclaurin not being on it I talked about it last week. Remember said with aga. Aj brown at sixty two mclaren's definitely not going to be on the list will. He wasn't the only players on the list are a brandon sheriff and chase young At sixty one and really you know. What terry mcchord should be on that list. As i mentioned last week certainly in front of coal beasley certainly. In front of corey davis. I think personally even though he's a slot receiver in front of chris godwin But he's not so. Hopefully this'll be used by him and anybody else. That didn't make it. Montas sweat jon allen. Doron pain Who am i forgetting Who else could be considered for that Top one hundred whatever hopefully they'll use it as incentive. It's a players popularity contest. We've talked about that. It's like the equivalent of the pro bowl. They vote for who they like. They don't get to play these guys and even get to watch a lot of these guys and sometimes it's tied to to an agent that they share or you know a marketing rep that they share I wouldn't get too hung up on it. I know many of you are and i would have preferred to have seen terry on that list to. I think he deserved it he. He's one of the top one hundred players in the game. The receivers that ended up being on the list. All the way up to number eleven which is where they are into the top ten He's going to be like the number twenty wide receiver in the game. He's better than that But as we talked about a few weeks ago. I don't know that he's a lot better than fifteen right now. But it could be a lot of what ron rivera said on saturday about the friday night game but more importantly just about a lot of stuff related to the quarterbacks that's next right after these words from a few of our sponsors. Today's episode is sponsored the nba and their quest to advance the game of basketball wrote the community and impact culture. The league celebrates its teams players and fans across the past president. Huger as part of its seventy fifth anniversary season that's game highlights pivotal moments on court and beyond from.

I think we talk to herbstreet about the realignment talking about. There's probably going to be four players in this thing. The playoffs going gonna go. What are your thoughts guy who is fully invested in college football on what the future college football looks like right now. Well i think it's kind of trending towards nfl light. It depends on how three some of these schools want to be. If you're you're an elite program let's say for argument's maybe there's between eighteen and thirty and they wanna to form their own league. Say we're gonna do the nfl deal right now. We're gonna have arlen. Tv rights agreement. We're gonna skim everything off the top and just keep like six billion dollars for ourselves and divide you know amongst art our teams. They could do that. I think this alliance that you're kind of alluding to between the pac twelve big ten and i think. Acc they've kinda wanna slow that down and keep it kind of where it is and look at expansion for the play offs and everything and make sure doing the right way. But you know. I hear this. The alliance thought conference wasn't alliance. You have that. And they're saying this. And meanwhile bob bos be greg. Thank you you're working together trying to bring football back all the wild great sankey is i got the poison pill and there does pull over texas and so you know he's just like cuckold him right out from under him. I guess i'm looking at this big office fan. You know. this is kind of like the office alliances. Actually we've got going on with like jim and dwight and kevin and everything else. That's going on it. I don't really know how it makes any sense. I thought a conference wasn't alliance. Maybe this is more like a more like a pack. You know american pie like american pie. Tactic ruined go on senior trip and lose our virginia together. Aj show pat how that's done. And maybe that's kind of the alliance the pack that they're trying to form. Okay bob you played for the detroit. Lions motorcity dan. Campbell is the head coach. He's made a lot of headlines. Another head coach that makes them headlines. Nick serianni in philly. Sometimes we get. We play a lot of clips from both of those guys out of those two guys. Who do you think has success. I think both of them could be successfully. Both them may stink. Like what do you think. The outlook is for both of those guys. Here's the thing. Dan campbell plays the meathead and he has a meathead like deep down. But he's also smart meathead like he does the meat head things so that people just kind of disregard them and think that he's an idiot and then that's a great way to avoid tough questions they're asking him about bite kneecaps and all that nonsense. He relates to his players. Really well he talks about toughness and they're doing up downs but from everything i've heard of detroit. All those guys really love them there. They call him a free breath of fresh air. You love them to do loves the party. i keep his kind of circum mike variable. They're very similar. Really cerebral guys very intelligent But they love to party dan. i'd never played with him but he lived in dallas in the off season. Because that's where it came from before he went to detroit as a player. I mean he'd be out there. You know chugging. Jack rippin heaters is a great story. So you don't have. You've never had sex yet. Dan campbell. We went to this. This like this streak that went to this concert out in east texas probably an hour and a half away from dallas on a saturday night. You know we're young coordinated having kids we both go. It's a bunch of guys and he gave me one other white with and we can see this kind of up and coming country band. Couldn't even remember who it was. But it's in the middle of nowhere. Imagine a city like inbetween. Indianapolis and columbus excluding dayton and. That's basically where this was so we're getting ready to roll up. We got a bus. It's like twelve o'clock. Hey dan we're getting out of here. It's saturday night. Tomorrow's mother's day. Dan's got two kids. Lovely wife holly back at home. And he's like. I'm gonna stay here with the band. What the heck. I do an hour and a half from dallas. There's no uber. that's even coming out.

"But yeah i again i. I think it's gonna be hard for them to stop you know. You know julio jones and aj brown. I think one of them will do well here. Maybe this is where reynolds. And i continue to get more involved in the offense if one of the other big wide receivers. You know isn't doing well. Derrick henry i think could do okay of course But again. I don't expect him to rush two hundred yards like he did in the one game against The colts last year in indianapolis. So i think it's kind of a middle of the road. I think you really can't go wrong with starring. The you know that week obviously It is also a divisional match up to. That's the other thing you got to look at. So yes we number eight match up this halloween as well just to throw that in there so moving onto week number nine the titans go to la take on the rams as a sunday night football game. This is a good match up. You know for sunday night. However i do think that you know the titans offense. I think my struggle a little bit now. Jalen ramsey i think is one hundred percent gonna go up against julio jones. I think he loves going up against jones. So that's gonna continue so. Aj brown could have a good game here because we got to see all the defensive backs to here on the rams. I think that's a little bit of a concern but again we'll have to wait and see. And then you got derek. Henry going up against that run defense with aaron donald up the middle. That's going to be two freight trains colliding into each other. I can't wait for that. That matchup so. I think this is kind of a you know. Maybe a little bit of an unfavorable matchup here. You know in la going up against that defense. I think that's going to be a problem. And i think defensively you know i forget to mention. The colts. probably look for other options depending on how the colts offense is doing here. Yeah probably don't start the titans defense that week. Because i think stafford will be on a roll at this point in the season I think he can move the ball against his defense. He also played them last year as a member of the lions even though they got absolutely destroyed but still you know he now. He's going up against him again. But yeah i think this is kind of an unfavorable match up here. I think the rams win this game. And i think that you know again. Start these guys. Of course. But i don't expect them to have massive numbers in this game so moving onto week tan. The titans take on the saints. The saints come town now. These two teams met a couple years ago. And you know the titans. They actually played well in the beginning. And then the wheels kind of fell off the took control when they won the game. Pretty handily but Now with the saints. We thought the cap space and stuff in guys leaving. I think the titans they do really well here. I think win this game. And i think this is a positive match-up i think this favorable matchup here. I think across the board. You can't go wrong with starting people. Titans defense i mean it all depends on who the quarterback is and how well the offense is doing. I think but you know. You gotta do a chimera and michael thomas. Hopefully we'll be back at that point you know so. I'd probably lean more towards staying away from the titans defense. You know in this match up. You know we'll say so moving on to week. Eleven the texans. Come to town now again. I think it all depends on if the shawn watson is playing. If he's not playing. I think you start the titans defense if he isn't won't if he isn't playing Sorta titans defense if he has playing. Don't stop signs defense. Then across the board their can re will go off in this game The receivers will go off in this game. Tannehill everybody across the board. I think could go off in this game because the texans are not a very good team so yes. That's my thoughts on came week twelve. They go to new england to take on the patriots. And you know what i'm actually going to say. You could start the titans defense this week. Because mike variable you know knows the patriots. They played well in that playoff game in these two teams met. Obviously brady's no longer there. But i still think that the titans will play. Well you know regardless even cams more athletic quarterback but i do think that the titans could take advantage of the inaccuracy. That cam newton brings to the table at times and also the patriot The titans did beat the beat up on the patriots a couple of years ago. I think it was twenty. I wanna see was twenty eighteen. Twenty seventeen two thousand eighteen. You know The titans absolutely killed the patriots in that game. So mike variable you know his squad they match up well against the patriots so i think you know this might be a week where maybe you started the titans defense And then you know offensively. I i think i think they'll struggle a little bit. I think they're going to have to rely on. Derrick henry bill belichick might have a game plan for that because there can redid. Run wild on that playoff game in that playoff game but again gotta wait and see on that So i kind of think this is like a middle of the road. Matchup year for the titans. I don't expect people to go off in the scheme. But you know. Want maybe Maybe the defense ends up being the number one performer in this game. I don't know but yeah this is kind of a middle of the road. Matchup here for the titans especially because now you got full crowds or back in foxborough. It's getting close to winter weather. You know it it's gonna be. It'll be interesting. It'll be interesting to see this game late..

"And lawrence. And i feel pretty good about that. As you mentioned very soft schedules start for the jacksonville. jaguars as a prelude to dune. The sneaky stats article. Which i'm about ninety percent done with. It should be up tonight or or tomorrow. The jaguars had the six soft schedule within the six fantasy. Friendliest schedule within the first six weeks of the season. So i'm still really. I think they're gonna start hot. They're they're gonna come out. They're gonna surprise. People people are going to know exactly how they're gonna play offensively. They've got more talented people. Think again all five offensive starters back. They're gonna put up some points. Yeah i mean brandon thornton positive the jaguars offensive line thornton. Talk positively about their pace. We all know they have talent. The skill position. So yeah. I mean i like the jaguars for sure this depth chart stuff. You know it's funny. We've doing this for a long time. We know that these preseason depth charts mean absolutely nothing. Mike variable comes out yesterday and somebody asked me questions at the press conference about the depth chart and mike able says. Let me see that. I haven't seen it so that shows you. How much coaches actually know about them. But when they confirm my priors. I like to point out and so by confirming my priors michael hartman was listed opposite tyreek hill in the past the problem for meco harmon is. He's been listed directly behind tyree kale as tyreek hill. Direct up again. I think we call hartman. Just a no brainer. Forget about the depth chart but it makes it confirms at least they see him playing a different spot than tyreek hill. You have them all the way up to eighty seven overall. Now we've been ahead of market on him since i don't know february or march or something like that just been hammering recall hartman and the markets catching up geeky. Moving him up is that what's going on here by moving nico hartman up. Yeah yeah. I think so. And i remember when i first started at rota world. I did blurbs. On every single depth chart that will come out and rosenthal was kill. Man take it easy on on the depth chart blurbs. Like what no. We gotta get this. Get this stuff on the site now. And and you know. I had to learn and i'm at the point where i don't even look at the charts at all because it may lead you in the wrong direction. I think it's maybe even likely to lead you in the wrong direction than in the right direction. But you know. Instances of confirmation bias. We've got love it exactly okay. You were intent on this. Michael thomas thing. There was a battle disagreement within. Etr about where we should have. Michael thomas edison his way. Lower the field on michael thomas. I think some people think. Michael thomas is still a reasonable pick in the seventh or eighth round. There's been some weird reports coming out on michael. Thomas jeff duncan had a weird report. I know you've talked to underhill about it. Do you want to update the people. And what you know right now about michael thomas and how you're thinking about it. Yeah it's just. I mean this thing has been. There's there's a rift between michael thomson organization He got into a fight with sean. Payton chauncey gardiner. Johnson seems to get into a fight with. Everybody is teammates you know. All the bears receivers yvonne williams anthony miller. But he got into it with michael thomas and you know and then sean payton got involved in that and you know the ankle injury. All last year had to be extremely frustrating. And then you know the the will. They collectively decided the saints and michael. Thomas collectively decided that they were going to try to rest and rehab the ankle in and try to avoid surgery however at some point michael thomas stopped answering the calls of the saints trainer in sean payton and the wide receivers coach curtis johnson for three months and then all of a sudden he shows up in june. And ankle's not fixed. The ankle is not right and they're like all right. Well we have to have surgery. But why were you ghosting us for you know three months. We probably should have been coming in every couple of weeks to make sure that. Everything's okay so i don't. I don't know man he. He got his money and he got his really big deal and maybe he's not committed to the team as much anymore. Or what have you but this was. This is like a a serious thing and then he's posting stuff on twitter about you. Know how the that he said. He says the team through him under the bus. Like and now the night evolves into trade rumors like this is this is. This is a a train going nowhere. Fast and i don't again i don't know if he's going to play. It's not saints this year. Yep okay you move marquess calloway into your top one fifty at one hundred thirty seven thousand three hundred thirty seventh overall all reports from every beat right around the saints. I hate to get into beat. Writer takes a man. Every be writer. Says marquess calloway is having a big camp- what do you think about taking came. How would you compare him to trade on deonte harrison. These guys if people are willing to take. Maybe one. Saint talking to nick hundred underhill about this and i mean he kind of tempered expectations for marquez. Calloway he was like about yet. I mean he's gonna look good. I mean he's you know he's the rest of the dudes are just you know. Just a bunch of guys harassed. John johnson that converted tight end so desperate at little jordan. Humphry is like a factor. he will jordan humphry. Four seven five coming out of college ty montgomery they're giving why primary worded him from running back to wide receiver fulltime. I mean they are not in a good place and they don't have flexibility either to really go get anybody i don't there. There has has been see so lambda. Football guys was mentioned.

"The NFL is dealing with Corona virus cases on at least three teams, including an outbreak of 18 cases among players and personnel with the Tennessee Titans earlier this week, the Titans game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was rescheduled from tomorrow to October. 25th And today brand new Tomorrow's game between the New England Patriots in Kansas City Chiefs also postpone because of a positive case on each team joining us tonight to discuss how the league is handling the recent surge of cases and what this could mean for the season, moving forward, his NFL analyst Eric Mitchell, Eric, Welcome to news nation. Forgive my friend. All right, Eric. Let's talk about this. Where is the NFL Is Faras the thought process moving forward as games were being shifted around. It's a doozy. They were not expecting to have the Cam Newton positive test and this quarterback from Kansas City Chiefs off the practice squad. What they're investigating now is where these random exposures are coming from. There are the threat of finds the NFL was in Tennessee yesterday with the Players Association and their special covert council They have from headquarters. NFL looking into what happened because it's just random. Mike Variable, the head coach of the Titans, says he doesn't understand where it came from, because everybody Following protocol, so they're really looking into what's going there. The threat of fines, of course, has everybody in there. The NFL just wants to keep their players and coaches and personnel safe with 17 people testing positive alone from the Titans. It's a concern that it could spread throughout because these folks are all trained together. Cam Newton, of course, is Luckily enough, all those folks on his offensive squad tested negative so we can we'll hopefully can have a game Tuesday night this whether they're kind of aiming right now, the NFL the NFL just concerned for players, safety and fan safety is they want to bring fans back into the stands. Eric, Do you think that this thought process that there could be positive cases was actually expected when the protocol was put into place? Absolutely. They didn't believe that they were gonna be untouchable. They learned that when you watch the major league baseball, right, we saw the Marlins and the Cardinals not to pick on those two wards, but they both got hit pretty hard by Covad for lax rules on themselves. The N F l knew they would have it just because exposure happens when we go and go stay in hotels and travel. It's at risk. We see it even in politics right now. So you know what the president getting it just being out. You could get exposed to it. Even with the tightest protocols, so the NFL knew there would be one Z two Z's. I don't think they were expecting him back to back or I think they were expecting more what you're seeing in New England in Kansas City. To be honest, compared to what you're seeing in Tennessee. 17 is a huge number when you include players in personnel. That's an outbreak Onesie twosies or what they were looking for, so they are prepared for. It is just trying to see how they could stop it, and they're tightening up the rules on the sidelines. We've seen those for the last couple of weeks. It's even tighter this week. All right, So we're talking about Tennessee and Pittsburgh being moved and they did not have to add an additional ofthe week, A bye week in the effort of fairness as we continue to possibly see cases. Is it fair if the NFL starts canceling a game for one team, but not another. That is a loaded question when we're talking about the Patriots, and we all know that the Patriots have their wonderful reputation with a lot of fans of the NFL. It'll be interesting. The NFL is trying to keep it fair. Personally, I don't think we're gonna have that game scheduled this week. I think that game will be moved to another time. Just because we're still waiting for test to come back. We need to test still for the players who were tested later today. See that the results for tomorrow It'll be interesting to see what comes out of the NFL is going to be fair as they can and not do it, You know, as they're doing it, so to answer your question, Yes, the NFL is going to keep it fair. But will there be feedback? Will they coulda stands don't make the decisions and the league offices and the players Association comes together to make sure it's fair. So that's really where they're doing it. They just care about player safety. And the personnel safety. That's the most important thing here, moving a game from here to there. These players they love playing football. This is what they live for their going to get their 18 games. No matter what. That's the great thing about the NFL. It can be played in any weather. Eric Mitchell. Thank you so much, buddy. We appreciate you taking the time here on news nation. Thank you. And stay with news nation for.

Republican lawmakers confronting a former FBI director James Comey, about his oversight of the Trump Russia probe during a politically charged hearing that focused attention on problems with it. The hearing on Wednesday was Comey's first appearance before Congress since harshly critical inspector general report on the investigation. He repeatedly said he had been underwear of major problems with each of the four applications the FBI submitted in 2016 and 2017 that Eavesdrop on a former Trump campaign aide, Comey suggesting that was because the aid Carter page accounted for just a slice of the investigation. But Texas Senator Ted Cruz wasn't having it. There was no to my knowledge surveillance of the Trump campaign. I think the overall investigation of the Russian interference and whether Americans were associated with it was conducted in honest compliment Ben Away. So, Mr Comey, you're saying it's competent In honest, I assume you've read the Horowitz Inspector General report, which found 17 significant errors or admissions and omissions in the Carter Page five's application. So in your view, 17 mistakes lying to the court. Is competent, honest report. I don't believe he concluded there were lies to the court that their significant important failings in the way in which the Carter Page Kaiser was prepared and renewed. All right, Mr Mr Comey. Let's go directly to lies, The inspector general report concluded. Mr Klein Smith on attorney who worked for you in the FBI deliberately altered an email. He had emailed the CIA and ask if Carter Page was the source. The CIA came back and said, Yes, he was this source. And Mr Klein Smith, your lawyer altered that email toe. Add the words not a source to make the e mail say precisely the opposite of what the CIA said, and that fraudulent document was then used as a basis for a fraudulent submission to the FISA court. You believe that is honest and competent, Mr Comey. I don't believe you've offered an accurate summary of the Horowitz is finding Democratic Committee member Amy Klobuchar accused a Republican colleagues of distracting the American public. We assess the President Vladimir Putin and the senior most Russian officials are aware of, and probably directing Russia's influence operations aimed at denigrating the former U. S. Vice president supporting the U. S president and fueling public discord ahead of the U. S election. In November. So that's the hearing that we should be having right now or, as was pointed out by center White House we could be having the hearing we were supposed to be having right now, which is the head of the antitrust division of the Justice Department and the head of the FTC. While we've got fraud going on during this pandemic, we could be asking them about innocent people being hurt. We could be asking them about us. Senator Whitehouse has pointed out what in the world is going on over the trust division. Why they devoted so many resource is to marijuana mergers and we could be asking them the results of their tech investigations, which is now basically 20%. The stock market, those air pretty important things or we could instead of being here, rehashing this of someone who is asking someone who's fired but from their job by the president, along with so many other people we could be trying to figure What we should be doing for the American people during this pandemic. Attorney General Bill Bar last year appointed attorney of Connecticut John Durham to investigate the origins of the FBI probe shortly after Special counsel Robert Mueller completed his years long investigation into whether the campaign colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 election.

"And coach Mike Variable and everybody's hype on the Titans, especially what they did last year. I'm still not sold on Ryan Tannehill coming back in performing like he did, despite the contrary, so staying with that Air Sea north. I look at the Colts and I got big love for two shot. Watson. I think that seems incredibly dangerous could compete for Super Bowl this year, but the team nobody seems to be talking about for the Colts. Ready. The courts could maybe be the best team in the FCC, and they're not getting that love. Are you sold on this team, and if not them, who's another team? I said, I think it's in himself is at North. It's going North is my Bangles, the South and the South. I'm going with the culture Is that the team? You believe it? Or is there another team in this NFL? That's not getting love. Similar to the lack of love. I think these culture not getting Well, when you look at the cold, One thing they do have is the best offense the lines in all of of NFL football. So when you look at that you get a veteran quarterback in Philip Rivers. You draft a Jonathan Taylor and you have a ball in Mac. Not to mention you have while I predicted Michael Pittman or tea. Higgins going to Indianapolis and I say this because I played a year in Tennessee under the offense that Philip Rivers has been in his entire career. I know he loves big jump ball receivers. So it was very imperative that they've got a receiver like that, because that was that's what Philip Rivers love and he loves to put a foot ball down the field so big. I could just jump up and kick in. So I think that's gonna be Plus for them, Plus I love what they did with the trade with the force, but they're huge defence. I tell people all the time. People love the eye candy. They love the receivers. They love the quarterback's love the running backs. Football games are won. You're often salon in your defense a lot. There. The games are won in the trenches. You can control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. The chances are we're gonna be there. 10 year. NFL wide receiver veteran Harry Douglas is joining us now here in Spain and feds and Harry, I want to talk about your former team Last year, the Falcons win seven and nine. Probably not what anyone was saying. They add Todd Gurley in the off season, Everyone seems to be healthy. Now. What are the expectations this year for Atlanta? Look what the expectations are high. Will you look at that Ryan and for the last two years for the popular what 79 both years didn't have the years. They they they wanted tohave. Matt Ryan takes that person. I played with him. I was drafted with him in 2008. He has a ton of respect for this game and how to approach it and what to get out of it, so I think they're going to do a great job. Now I do have a slight concerns with the left guard position because that's what I tell them back a little bit office last year. So I'm looking to see if Matt Hennessy or James Carpenter to any one of those guys pick up the slack from last year when you looked defensively when they brought in, Don't say flat power that would keep That was when he had the relationship with Dan Quinn before the plan of the University of Florida. So that played a big role in it, but in the number one draft pick for them a data really a lot of people here that I didn't like the pick initially. I love the pig because This is a perfect defense and a perfect scheme or play like a date a real toe, Reda react jump routes and things of that nature. Plus, he's going to get the Julio generals in the cavalry Lee every day of practice so he can only get better something important, watching him play. Also looking forward to the NFL season on Thursday, 10 Year NFL wide receiver veteran Harry Douglas. Thank you for the time. Enjoy your labor day. We appreciate it. No problem. The hottest couple on the block on radio baby, We're going to make that a drop Harry. That's what you do, and we appreciate it..
"mike variable" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"So. I don't know if we should try to embarrass Dj for not singing the fight song or if we should thank him for not subjecting us to that. But I'm glad he still knows the lyrics at the very least so daring to Evans The the only APP state mountaineer off the board here in the first three rounds. Just WanNa make sure I can get a slight subtle dig at him anyway. I during today was running back out of the titans. Landside fit. I like it I like it fine. I don't worry about it. I don't I don't care about having duplication as I don't need Aj Dylan to be the backup to Derrick. Henry I mean you can do it if you want to. But why not give the team something? They haven't seen the entire game when when Derrick Henry comes out they're going to see a completely different look and they're going to have to change change up. It's like it's like seeing fastballs or it's like seeing a changeup pitch or curve ball pitcher and all of a sudden you got gas coming in and out of the bullpen. It's tough to adjust to that and I think that could be something that really works in the titans. Favors is have a completely different style of back command as a change of pace we call change of pace changes the energy and the stadium when he rose onto the field. I want to because they weren't able to do that with Dion. Lewis or how they going to be able to fit in with Evans. He is talented player. Man He's a Jitterbug and the open-field he has the juice and and all of that other stuff. It'd be interesting. How Tennessee drives to play this out and also do they try to preserve Derrick Henry? A little more heading down the stretch so he is ready to. Kinda like imposes. Will those last Handful of games and going into the postseason. We saw do it this year. Well if you do it's not going to be with a guy like Evans like you're going to have whoever your second back is is going to have to be the guy that takes those heavy carries to take some of the load off the workload off of him because Evans to me is never going to be a number one like. That's not how he's built. That's not the kind of back he is but Man Tennessee's building a little bit of a bully over there fisher. If they've they're onto something they are onto something. Mike variable. We talked about Matt Rule. I got a lot of respect for Mike. I think Mike Variable. He's the one guy that's gone from the Patriot. Way And I as Bill. O'brien has had some success. Obviously he's wants them divisions but I feel like vegetables on it and he's not a coach that's player. It's a player who coaches now and I think that pickup Christian Fulton towards the bottom of the second round was a nice one for that team. That lost Logan Ryan and Malcolm Butler been banged up and they go ahead and try to get get another Defensive Back in there To help with that team in that division last storyline may I mentioned had some fun with the Raider selection of Tanner Muse. But before that and then they went back to back. Receiver there with Imboden. Who's who's done you know. There's been a versatile weapon for Kentucky and then backed it right up with Brian Edwards from South Carolina to go along with Henry Rugs in the first round. I mean you know we want to give the Broncos a little tough for going heavy on the receivers. I mean here we go. The raiders are trying really. This was a running back. I don't know if you notice like how he was announced. He was announced. I use announced. He'll I didn't hear the now running back. And so maybe maybe Jon Gruden is trying to a little slick. Stir by putting them at running back but when he runs onto the field. Everyone is going to know that he's coming out of the backfield he's going to get the ball and some kind of way. I think what's interesting is. I studied Brian. Etta was Har last week and I was really impressed with the ball skills. His ability to win fifty balls to acrobatic catches. Some of the tops is daddy displayed on those inbreeding. Routes those things work and with Jon Gruden wanting to Kinda utilize a pure west coast system with rugby and the vertical stretch guy and maybe on the outside being the guy they can run. Some of the tough inbreeding and tyrone Williams in some of the other receiving core it be interesting to the one thing that has been constant which has been a surprise based on all the buzz that we've heard. Derek Carr is still the starting quarterback for the Las Vegas Raiders. And I mean we for an everybody in their mom associated the raiders and he's going to be traded and get him out of the neighbor as we stand right now in day. Three of the draft decor is their quarterback and unless falter somehow in cracks leaves the door cracked or Marcus Mariota to overtake them. The rate is going to upgrade all these players. But they're gonNA have the same trigger. Yeah they I like Brian Edwards a lot. I like them a lot. I think he's really tough. Great size can run. He's a second round talent who fell because of the because of the knee injury. But they're just taking the broom wide receiver core clear. Just Sh- sh- you gotTA RENFRO where we're getting all of our Clemson guys. Quick Clemson's wind up with Clemson. Interesting thing shout out to the SEC. And and that's it and it's a wrap and we'll see what happens they added. Scc and limbaugh. Let's not forget about this. We're we spent some time talking about what what Jalen hurts is going to do. Loon can do a lot of the same like Lynn can be a problem because he can roll out to the wide receiver spot. He can get running back carries he cameron zone zone. Read stuff then the gadget player that you want the gadget player that can come on the field and he can play. Put Him in the back and all all of a sudden you look up. And he's running zone. Read an option stuff in this stuff. He he's a little different Yeah he hard to prepare for. Give you sleepless nights as defensive. Coordinator is such a fascinating thing to see the team process. And then I will say there's just reference like everyone in in day three in the way that this approach right now. It's all about finding the hidden gem discipline you really throw you darts. This is when Guys who have character you guys who have like a medical issue but if they're really good players this is when you throw you dr you throw your dart the fourth round the fifth round When you have character concerns this when you become kind of swing for the fences guys that you wouldn't feel comfortable taking early but now you feel comfortable now because the financial risk is less than significant. I'll leave it with this here guys before we get out of here are the quarterbacks at all the best players available as we get into day. Three here round four As we get back on the clock tomorrow morning Depending on what time zone you're in a Lancet or is there another player out there? That's the kind of sticks out as best in show that still available. I don't think it's a quarterback's no I don't. I don't think that's going to be going through my list right now because I thought there was a pretty good football players at the end right at the back. End of the third tyrrell Burgess. I think he's so nice. Yeah Tied in here's Brian Harrison. Brian here some bright. He's still out there and wait for him to hear his name called. He was the one that that That I'm looking. I'm looking for my okay. Should go fuck yeah. I was told Bucky he was. He showed up at the combine linked to forty two and then when he had to run it was like Whoa. That's a used. Did the second way in before the forty and I got an asset. Ask A team I said. Hey what was his weight. Secondhand only dropped. Yeah that's not GonNa help and I think another two guys to me to stand out that a good football players have been picked Warren Bradley has not been picked from Utah. I thought that he had opportunity. Certainly to be in the third round and encourages weaver. My buddies called. Amen what's up my guy. I was like man bad body. The bad body bad. But he's got him in this and people that question in some of those big games man maybe he turned it down a little bit when it came to people getting after him a little bit kind of getting shut down but the one thing I would say about thirty thirty four and a half sacks over multiple years. It's already duplicate that production every deduction typically translate a Ni- incurred as we were those guys become Joe off the board pretty soon an and again still some good receivers out there tyler. Johnson Soda James Prochet Gandhi Golden From Liberty. Some guys out there. I don't think I don't think prochet is going to go. There's a medical. They're wrong but I've heard from a few people that they could if he doesn't go. It has nothing to do with the ability because he's talented. There's a guy that I think has a chance to be really good. Gabriel Davis from. Ucf Bug on a chance to watch him much. He did up pulse depot. And I remember watching. Gabriel Davis. Just taking him off the two or three times shook him badly and I think there might be something to this. Ucf Wide Receiver. He didn't go in the third but I think I had them in third fourth round category or territory. I think he's a guy to keep your eye on as well as A Mick Robertson. Because giving you wanted to bring about. I mean that guy or they homes and other one there's some concerns about medicals but so darn homes who's at. Yeah Yeah. Darnay really helped himself into post for the first twenty five or so picks first round. We'll see some good players off the board while looking forward to it guys. This has been fun.

"mike variable" Discussed on Menace 2 Society Podcast
"As fast as I. Oh my God this boy he smart he. He's a three eight student. Oh He's on track to get his degree in three years and he will be Eligible for the NFL next year and like everything points points to this kid is going to be something special ever know and he'd done it the Osu game The reason why we didn't win the game against Wisconsin the year before the year that we beat you. All was the guy that you didn't want caught two major touchdowns on one hand in the back end zone. You know what I mean and I always think about. Is that what it took that we would have did it. That you know right but it's a life is funny and the relationships are important because you never know winnow. Come back around to help you or hurt you or whatever the case is but that's why it always pays of yours Becua- people I think here. I think back to look where Mike Variable is today the head coach of the titans and he got his first shot as an NFL assistant coach with a guy that basically was went and got coffee. See for players we up patriots but He he always said he said When I had a great relationship with them we you know he would get coffee for us and stuff talk to them asking about his life? His family sure enough bill. O'Brien takes Texas job in calls to tire. Mike variable because he's a great dude. Yeah and here. He was because he wasn't an asshole to this enter. Oh man those answers. GM One day. I'm telling you in a funny story about Coaching jobs in a love of racial debt. Because I mean ah Mike Vrabel number one. You know what I mean I mean let's just call it what it is but he's won all these super bowl championships. He's caught passing super bowl as a linebacker defensive event and he's not high on a horse now. He's the head coach of the Tennessee. Titans and he's not high on a horse at all. I remember I was a strength intern at the time at. Osu and he was the D. D. Line coach and we chop it up every so often not much. where I think he who I was? Or whatever and so Fast forward many years later like coast combs with the titans. And I'm like are cool. We played in the Music City Bowl last year. And I'm like Koumba gutted titled Practicing Mess Combs and saw Goto the practice and raising hair. Doing like we. I'm like this is the the head coach of the Tennessee. Titans Bra this ain't no small potatoes but he valued relationships so much that he's like no like I I remember him and he remembers names and you know and to me. That's like okay. It's really about relationships. Like is not about like the most important thing person and I've been writing a A book for you know years and you know whenever I'm done you know I'm actually get it published. But his called above riches in it's about like what's more important enriches. This money is your name. That's the one thing that you know you enter the world that you don't have but when you leave you take with you. Yeah right you know. And it's about your name and people want to remember. How are you make them feel you know When I was around you like Issue like I got the five from that. You know it not a good do yeah right you know what I mean. And we didn't always agree. We bumped heads. We did all those sorts of things but it was always like you know like I I noticed guy you know I know what he tabled by. Nobody capable I love. And that's something that always resonated like you is funny. You had your own quirks about you. Did you own thing you march to your own. Beat you listen when you want it to. So you didn't win. You know what I mean. Did your own thing for sure. But you had the results that A lot of people didn't have when it came down to getting recruits in in trusting trusting. Your Gut on certain players like I remember Can't say his name but He he he plays in the south. But you really liked them. He's from Florida and US always talk about talk about and talking about and I used to watch the games like a and I'm like you know what I I really don't see what He. CNN is receiver man then then all of a sudden is receiver goes to the SEC. And you know he's you know is a nice award that he won You know and might be Jerry Judy Alabama it and you you build a relationship with that kid and I remember. I used to always watch games. I'm like I don't see what Zach seeing but Russia Woodham and you. You understood that kid to the level whereas like nod is kid is going to be some great one thing I did. Recruiting is is when I made that decision. I was like nope. You don't waiver it is done. I mean you and coach used to get into arguments over like I mean he's a receiver guy. Your Receiver Guy. You want this guy. He wants this guy a- and in the end you know I mean He. He's out Benjamin There's between Benjamin somebody else and Benjamin counter played out. I mean a game had last year. That was unbelievable that run that he had against Penn State and this year he showed out in some big time gains but it's all about relationships and your conviction I think people forget. Get that If you truly believe or something like you can get other people behind you. You truly hold true to your convictions. You know when I took the job at purdue dude reason why I left Ohio state to go to purdue number one I learned from the best guy in a business and I'm like you know. Let me go see if I can put what I learned from him to good use and so I took the job with Jeff because I look and coach Brom. He's a he's a normal guy. You know what I mean. He's not like you don't walk around in like I mean gene you don't feel like The tents in the guy who wear sweatpants and who talks normal. Who cracks jokes? You know you can sit back have a good time with and laugh with and then he allows you to be yourself you know and doing that with a guy who can do the numbers Eddie. Do own the field as like. Let's go have some fun too. I just want I just want to eat to let's deal. Let's Lo this toolbox and then you go out there and let let you know. Just go mow everybody everybody down so this year was kind of tough but We we played Sixteen seventeen oh so we we. We had six. We seventeen straight touchdown score by freshmen. This year. Like this rap boom boom boom boom boom in it was. Our team is young. But it's something it's it's a show this coming of West Lafayette that. I never been saying you know in We just got keep building in Rondell class who they're juniors now. And then this past class David Bill. You know gatorade player of the year for Indiana and he had a thousand yards back years with thousand yards backpack years true freshman when all American freshman all American and then this class coming in I think is going to be something special in a west end right now. The West is up for grabs like any man's league and it really is. There's a couple of put. The West is the the side that is very winnable of the big ten. And that's something that Kinda attracted me to them as we're like look I want to go and compete for the big victim West title. I want to go in you know. In December and play you know. Ohio state or Penn State for for that. And take your show. Yeah take a shot you know and and I think a lot of kids they get confused with the and we talked about this earlier. My people selling dreams. You know Like they're selling their dream to you. We're GONNA go in and national champion. Well just look at the history of it. All you know like people who've been promised National National Championships at schools. That you know are up there in the logo game. I haven't won you know if you want to win national championship to be honest. There's two schools you need to go to. And and that's Bama Clemson you know. Those are the schools that have done it in the last four years everybody else's selling you a dream in and I'm not trying to say your dream. I'm not trying to wake up and tell you like yes. We're going to go win a national championship next year. 'cause I promise of being authentic but what I will tell you is a McGee at you into a program program That will compete every day. Like nobody's business. We're going to compete for the big ten west because we have competed for big town west and we are a couple apple players and plays away from winning the big ten west nap. You WANNA go out and compete and take down the Hondas and a big ten championship. Then this is the place where you need to be stood at bill. Somebody else's brand come here and Bill Joe Brand like and I think that's where kids like their vibe a win being three and out you know to me here I go there and get your degree in three years. Dot Com Johnson. She's one of the best around it at doing her job. And then let's go ahead and move you onto the next phase of life where you could chase your dreams instead of somebody else's dreams and being on a shelf for five years at a institution to me crazy like go beyond shelf for three years playing. Get the numbers and then move on to your next destination for in go by mom house instead of sitting. Trying to figure out if you'RE GONNA be on a Grad transfer market you know what the main like in Kudos to transfer Puerto Blit like if you would have got it right the first time you don't have to transfer right the first time and the first time is not chastened logos. Finding the right fit for you whether that's purdue where somebody else to find the right fit and don't put yourself in a situation where it's up up for grabs your junior and you've got to learn a new system new coach and it may work out. You might need Joey Borough. You might be Gel but yeah yeah. That's that's a different guy in as few and far between yeah look at the success rate transfer. It's wildly low. Here's before we get you out of here last question. I have for you because I get get it all the time and I actually. We had a big tailgate before the Penn state game and had two different people that are kind of in the recruiting world Maybe a lower level recruiting Intern at a MAC school or wherever and they they all have the same questions. Like how do I get in it. How do I get into game? How did you get in a game? And and what what. What advice could you give to somebody? That just thinks that that being a part of college football recruiting side is something that they are meant to do who well. We'll be sure. I know what you want to get into the recruits. I write like that. That was never my goal. I never woke up and I was like you know what I'm GonNa go out here. I'M GONNA be the best recruiter guy could possibly be I wanted to be a coach GED Kent State for Paul Haines Took the job at Ohio state. Just as a seasonal type deal L. in and then I kinda got roped in you know how it goes and I I remember like you know We flipped dewayne. Haskins askins. And I'm like are Kook. Good whatever and then coach like dragged me Gone Pantani office and we sit down and he's like. Hey you know when you WANNA do whatever whatever and I mean. I was thirty one thirty two at the time. I'm a grown ass man in essay coach. I'm trying to be the next. You like number one as Corny as hail. Ah I'll probably look at a person to just sit a minute that a person just kept to myself and then like you know you get mcbroom yards other stuff and then that's where it's like like you know what I kind of do have A knack for this. And maybe I should just sit here and let Pantani and coach Meyer gloomy. And then that's what I did did but my vice two people were trying to get in and there's a there's something that people never WanNa hear and we were talking about it in in studio you go and and a half to decide if what you're doing right now is important to you outside of sports because you might.

"What did you do? I cut my Dick off forgot to win a super bowl and she'd be like at or would she be upset for able she'd be like. Do you want me to do it. Do you want to do it now. It's a great quote bravely something a woman would say to yeah. They're always happy to help when it comes to cut dick off. Mike Variable says that because he knows he doesn't have a franchise quarterback right. Sam Bradford is not a fucking franchise quarterback. He is a free agent and of a team that he would end up on and I would not be surprised Tennessee titans would be on you have Ryan Tannehill. You'll Marcus Mariota what if tannehill gets banged up at camp. You don't think they're bringing in Sam Bradford Sam Bradford make it to a roster that is to do. Here's what I'd say about Tennessee. If I'm ready we just talked about the entire A._F._C. Right <hes> and if I'm ranking teams who have come ranking teams teams from from worst to I on how I think the chance to win a super bowl Tennessee's in the bottom five of the division but it's it's it's really close. I do think ten like there's there's a narrative. Were Tennessee has one of these random years they get and Marcus Mariota. He did win that playoff game against the chiefs on the road. We're not too far removed from that team. I just don't see it. I'm not I'm not a Mariota. What a believer? I'm not a label as a head coach today. You asked me today. I'm making Tennessee last in the division yeah. I don't know what the odds are over mybookie dot A._G.. But I would are they the best worst team division in the A._F._C.. I think so yeah fair over the raiders I take them probably over the bengals. Yeah I would take him over like three teams A._F._C.'s Yeah A._F._C.. Let's see south is stacked but titans last time they won more than ten games. Guess rent or ten games or more ten games or more. I don't know it's gotta be like years ago. Decades Sam Bradford is not a fucking franchise quarterback head coach Jeff Fisher and it was two thousand eight when they went thirteen and three they've gone nine and seven the past three years in a row. I think diamond seven is their ceiling once again but I I they're going to be worse than that was the first and only time that both Tennessee titans and Joe Fisher went thirteen.

"mike variable" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"Ran twenty point seven. You have Connors guy penny heart ran twenty point six miles an hour, and then US's Eamonn Marshall ran nineteen point nine miles an hour. Now. We are going to move to defensive ends or edge rushers in my guy. Is Montas sweat guys. Well, so we can knock him out one. What an Montas what is a winner in a couple of ways today. He won the way he was tall. He was long. He met thresholds for sizes of believe two hundred and fifty five pounds. If I remember correctly. Freaky linked to and he is freaky long. Yes. He was two hundred and fifty two pounds. And then he came out in practice, and he used that length, and he strong armed or long armed, dude. Straight into oblivion. Which means he held up against the run. He was able to get a push input offense of tackles on skates. Back into the quarterback just using one arm which allows him to still capture the edge against the run. And then he was also able to push put pass rush moves together. When he got the opportunity to rush the passer couple of times where a couple blown assignments during team where he was able to absolutely if he wanted to he would have destroyed quarterbacks but later in the week as the week goes on it'll be interesting to see once these communications issues communication issues. Go away if he is still able to be as effective when guys are actually trying to get their hands inside his breastplate. I think most important thing with him was -bility to show powers. Well because he a guy can win. We're speed. He's flexible it can what with the bin. But it can also just like you said put his arms on top of your chest. Clayton just push back into the quarterback. And when you have that blend of power speed length. It's just tough to defend that at the next level. And I think that he you know, we saw titans head coach Mike variable really locked in on him. You know, I wouldn't be surprised if he's there and Tennessee's on the clock if that's their pick because every time he stepped up. Verbal perked up a little bit. You know, put his notes down and picked his is up and was very locked in on him. And you know, that's the guy that he's not going to be around the Cowboys pick. But he's a guy that we both really really liked today. You know, he's going to be he's going to be a lot of fun to watch on Sundays, here sooner. And I don't think it's gonna take them home to start making an impact. Yeah. My next guy is David long linebacker from West Virginia. Just just dropping my guys. And I'm going to let Connor talk about him because I took month has sweat from him as well. So David long's the guy that wrote about blogging boys last week is a potential target for for for the Cowboys who coming into this week. He's a tough evaluation because he's undersized. He doesn't do a lot of things in coverage at I wanna say he met a huge threshold today at being over two hundred and thirty pounds because he's listed into twenty two. So he has gained a little bit was his high. Let me love. But while he's looking for that he's a guy that was listed at five eleven to twenty five before the way institute. So look like he added some mass to his frame, which was huge. You're talking about a guy that just shoots gaps it a level. I don't know if I've ever seen before I put it in the article that I wrote that he may be the best gap shooting linebacker. I have ever evaluated in college. Football. He's just so quick. He so explosive and when he hits you it looks like a freight train just ran over dear because he's just and he's not a big guy. That's the thing is he just has so much pop in his hands in his pads that when he hit you looks like it hurts the guys feel that. And he's just a ton of fun to watch Tennessee game. He made some plays shooting gaps that just really really blew my mind, and I don't know where he's going to land because of his size because of his lack of ability to cover in man, he might be a guy that slips a little bit..
2018 NFL Week 10 takeaways - What we learned and what it means for next week
"Good question. I think that when you couple the Rams defense maybe having the slight edge over the Sikhs defense. Then I'd probably say the most well rounded team Watson spoke offenses are highly explosive. It would go to the Rams now I will say they have probably more explosive quarterback play or at least more versatility that aspect with Patrick Mahomes, which is playing well above yon whose years basically jerk off is on pace to have a tremendous season. But he's not the catalyst of offense. Like, I would say Patrick Mahomes. Yeah. Towards the end of the game the other. They thought the Fowler strip sack was just Houston. And you see that that fearsome front of the Rams maybe when they get to lead back. This defense can kinda round in shape, but you're correct right now. And so the same thing with with the Kansas City Chiefs, they're missing Eric berry. Once these two pivotal players in the secondary get back which team do you? Kinda give the edge going down the stretch. Yeah. You still have a passer us that's been system and from all different angles. Not only talent wise going to apply pressure. But they can Dow things up they can make it difficult on offense as well. I think when you're talking about the best back in the lead entirely who's who's definitely worth the price of admission. I mean, there's emigrate there that you just can't really afford to lose two. You don't want to get the ball back Jared Goff from that all the things you probably won't see. Taking your round the league with Brad Hopkins, the former oiler and titan offensive lineman. So let's focus on your old franchise, Tennessee, look, very good. And just about every phase of the game. Mike Gabel matching which with his old head coach, Bill Belichick. Titans. Beat the patriots today to go to five and four. We know that Mike mularkey change, the culture in Tennessee. It's a team that won a playoff game a year ago. But what dimension you think? Mike variables brought this club this year. I think that he's just basically created a structure here that was necessary to kind of cool wral the talented that has on this is a very young team therefore being very developmental and my Brady bowl and the system that he's trying to implement. I mean, are are just exactly what the doctor would've ordered in this situation.
