CEO of X2, Mark French, on How His Product Has Disrupted the Market
"Now. A couple of questions. I have here for you one. Is you guys are operating this business. And i would say that it is. It is disruptive what you're doing from what i can tell. The brand seems to be disruptive. What do you accredit the the rapid growth to do. What do you attribute the rapid growth to why is it. Being such a disruptive success. I would say there's more people coming to the category now right so there's certain people that would never try an energy drink right that more health conscious consumer really was not interested in putting in other bodies some of these beverages that had you know some you know ingredients that you can't even pronounce so as more people. Are you know looking for energy solutions. Whether it's a coffee drinker. That wants something. A little bit cleaner lighter Or you know somebody that might be drinking other energy drinks but is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. You know. i think that's really where the disruption comes in also. There's never really been a brand that you know was built in the locker room in this energy category right so you know. We're really fortunate that Death net recently featured us as a sports drink. Innovator we're not really a sports drink. We're not a hydration drink or something that you might take Before you want to do some exercise or if you wanna just have a little bit more energy and focus throughout the workday but you wanna have it with clean healthy ingredients and you know the other reason why people might consider us to be somewhat. Disruptors is just because of you know this athlete a model. there really haven't been athletes like saquon. Barkley labonte david kawhi leonard and now kendall tool who's one of the top peleton athletes That are joining a company like ours as shareholders and partners in the business. I think it's just you know shedding some light that there is renovation innovation in the energy category and that's where we could probably be looked at as being somewhat

We didn't want a couple of playoff games and net net positive for us has been about. Yeah beat peyton manning on the road in the playoffs that year.

NFL WEEK 3: Our official predictions for who wins this weekend
"So. I gave talk about. Obviously a game that still sits our my mind from last week. The Atlanta Falcons go our land Alcan's play. The Chicago bears this week. Chicago was to know the Falcons are all into one o'clock on Fox. Obviously, the Falcons. About that the shambles, the the. Disgusting performance that we saw last week losing a game that they should've never lost Dallas cowboys now going to Chicago bears team defensively is still one of the better teams in the NFL. Immature bisky while not playing. Ultra, great. Still playing well enough for them to win. If, you look at this game, you would think the Falcons will win because one of the Falcons do have going for them as they do have one of the better offenses in felt even to the two weeks you've seen that. And they're going to a bears team that. Can Be, offered to challenge America can be limited. So the Falcons you put up points. The game should be over now the falcons defense does have some questions, but I do think they would put voices should be enough to create distance in the bears it'd be able to pick up the whip. Obviously the bears are companies just gave a lot of confidence. As they should. To An older, start the season I mean. I saw some Falcon fans tweet about it. They don't necessarily want the T. Blues remember they're only to the of this dot over by any stretch. But people really what? Dad Queen Gone. And so. It's Cadillac Party. Wants. To lose. The ship but the Chicago bears going to three eight. Oh probably be one of the young shockers of this early season. I'm going to very hastily picked the Falcons to win this game. I think they they are the better team. Now whether they actually leads to the results on Sunday we'll see but I'm going to go the Falcons to win this game as they are the better team to me. I, Think Matt Ryan will continue his great start to the season. I think are often will continue to click. There are questions of Julio. Jones will play this Sunday I. Think he will. He usually plays to injuries when his Julio not move something now he did. Have a setback in practice but. You know I think. He should be able to go. and honestly, if he didn't would be great for my fantasy team either but I got kindergarten if I need to step up or racial gauge. So yeah. But yeah with the Falcons. Next game forty niners, giants, I've this Games interesting. Remember last week. The point is playing metlife stadium loss Garoppolo MOATS are. Bosa, Thomas they lost a lot of guys last week. And the. Giants team who? Looks like they'll probably be at the bottom of the barrel the NFC east. Especially after losing saquon Barkley. For? The. season. When I players were scared to play at metlife stadium because they felt like the the stadium turf in and everything was the reason for a lot of those injuries that they had last week when they played the jets. Now. I it's. It's interesting to see what it's GONNA be 'cause they're playing a backup quarterback backup running backs they got sued offensive Lineman. I still don't have Richard Sherman. You have a lot of injuries. and. So this may be a winnable game for the giants I mean, you don't really know what to expect from the forty niners this week. So it'd be you say here they of Jimmy, Garoppolo at least played to me I. Think you would be like, okay for eight hours I think we'd still be able to win, but we don't know how good the Ford back for Norwich backup QB may play. I mean, luckily, the void ours have a lot of defensive talent still. So it's not like older pleaded they have nobody but. It. Isn't as comfortable as A. But I would still in my right mind, go with the four years to win the game.
New York Giants Confirm Saquon Barkley Tore ACL, Out For The Season
"There are terrible injuries all over the NFL yesterday alone. Nick. Bosa. From the niners Saquon Barkley from the giants both suffered torn ACL statistics show that through two weeks nfl record twice as many significant injuries as last year. It's actually at least six players suffered a torn acl including just recently Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin Eleven, injuries to starters in the one o'clock games alone John Do you think these injuries have something to do with the fact that there were no preseason games. Well. For example, the Rams don't play any of their starters in preseason games I think is in the spirit of your question i. think it has something to do with no camp no real camp they kind of shotgun training camp and I don't know how you could make the opposite argument that it has nothing to do with it. I wouldn't tied to preseason games what I would do it to the fact that there was very little tackling. Yes in. The game started and the other thing is I know Kyle Shanahan the niners felt like the field wasn't ready like the field I think he played in the meadowlands and he's got play there again next week because he played the jets and now he's GonNa, play the giants. Players on both teams going down. So I don't necessarily think that the facilities were one hundred percent prepared either I think again, I think the spirit of your question is the fact that they fast tracked everything and started the season. Because of Covid is that having any do with the injuries I don't know how you could say it doesn't I think it has to yeah. I mean I I completely agree I mean between training camp and preseason games where guys at least get a sense for what they get a reminder of what getting hit is like. I think they're I think they would be better off. It is an extraordinary number of injuries and none worse than Christian McCaffrey who's gone for four to six weeks and his the stalwart of my fantasy team just loyal to John Ireland how about? Yeah. I cleaned your clock thinking Matt Ryan. But. How about how about Saquon out for the year? Yeah. Entirely out for the year Bosa gone for the with a tornado. And that means that the giants I. It might be a race between the giants and the jets who the worst team football is. The whole new. York City area has to just garbage football teams because the jets are a mess and now the giants have no running game. So it's going to have it's going to have after-effects. All these
San Francisco 49ers lose Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Bosa, Raheem Mostert
"The bigger headline from NFL week to injuries done worse than Greg's forty niners. Jimmy Garoppolo the quarterback going to be out four to six weeks with an ankle sprain juice is really bad on defense nick. Bosa. Likely. Horn. Seal. That's the season ender Solomon Thomas. Knee injury as well. Running back Brahim. MOSTER. He left the game after an eighty yard nobody touched me touchdown. He left he left the game.

"saquon barkley" Discussed on Big Blue View
"September eighteenth a couple of days before your New York giants faced. The Chicago bears in week two of the NFL season with the giants trying to avoid Owen to start looking for the first victory of the Joe Judge era as giants head coach. Giants enter Sunday's game as five point five point underdogs. Currently according to draft Kings sportsbook draft kings, of course, is an SP nation partner check out all of all of their work at decay nation. So but anyway, giants will be underdogs on Sunday as they will be for most of their games throughout the twenty twenty NFL season. Few things to to talk about today. Want to talk about the the remarks that head coach Joe Judge made earlier in the week in defense of quarterback Daniel, Jones? Very impassioned remarks that judge made also. WanNa get into the remarks at Tiki Barber made about Saquon, Barkley and Barclays Response to those remarks also will play for you a little bit later on in the show in interview that I did with Jeff Burke of SP nations. Chicago bears website Windy City Gridiron. As we preview Sundays action between the giants and the bears listen. Let's start with the Jones judge remarks listen I thought Daniel Jones played pretty well on Monday night against the Pittsburgh steelers threw two interceptions but the the really only unforgivable play was the interception that Jones through at the goal line at the end of of the nineteen play drive, which of course, took took points away from the giants took away an opportunity for them to take a lead late in the third quarter was really a crushing blow in the game. Especially for an underdog team like the giants to have a chance to take a lead late like that, after such an impressive drive after Jones made so many critical throws on third down ran for a couple of first downs. So I mean but that was a play that Jones? Knows he he was trying to throw the ball away but he made that decision too. Late he got hit by Bud depre- that ball had to come out earlier or he had to use his legs and try to make something out of that play. The could have perhaps thrown the ball at the feet of Saquon Barkley bad play but and those are the kinds of things going forward. We've we've had mark Scofield and dissect Daniel Jones a number of times. Those are simply the kind of things that Jones needs to eliminate if he's going to become a top tier NFL franchise quarterback if the giants are going to become a winning NFL football team, you come out of Monday looking at Jones performance and there's so much to to feel good about and yet that turnover leaves. You with the with the but because he has to eliminate those kinds of things we talked so much in the off season about his pocket presence about his pocket awareness about his decision making under pressure and those that particular play it raises that question again. So we'll be watching against the bears on Sunday, we'll be watching throughout the season to see if Jones makes progress in that area. To me, he's got everything else that you need. He's got the army's got the intelligence. He's got the attitude. He's got the work ethic. He's got the leadership skills. He's got the mobility. He's got the toughness. He simply needs to make better quicker decisions in the pocket that enable him to protect the football and not to. Not to turn the ball over in critical situations. All right. Let's move on to another topic. Let's talk about Tiki Barber's remarks about saquon Barkley. Listen SAQUON had a horrible game on Monday night? Not necessarily his fault? Fifteen carries six yards point four yards per carry You know awful night no place for Saquon to run. Guys in the backfield all night long on top of saquon pretty much as soon as he was taking handoffs from Daniel Jones. I. Think Eight of his carries went for negative yardage I think he was hitting the backfield on at least eleven of those runs of his fifteen runs. So really nothing that sake one could have done on Monday night to to improve his numbers the Pittsburgh Defensive Front one of the best in the League simply overwhelmed. A, giants offensive line playing together for the first time and listen. I'm not going write off that giants offensive line. I'm not gonNA say oh, Dave gettleman still didn't get this right listen yet a rookie left tackle yet first time center. This was never going to be easy for the giants. It was never going to be completely smooth I'm still optimistic about that offensive line, but it's going to take time and we saw that on Monday as a really good. Really established team simply had its way with the giants offensive line the. The thing with with Saquon that that has drawn everyone's attention isn't the rushing yardage it's the pass protection. It's the fact that he gave up a sack when he didn't recognize a blitz by Pittsburgh's Mike Helton and pretty much with on the block. It's the fact that that's not the first time we've seen that. tiki barber on the TIKI and Tierney show former giants star questioned Barbara's pass protection. He questioned his willingness to pass protect. He questioned his willingness to be physical and to actually hit people and he said that Barkley simply can't be a three down back if he's not willing and or able to pass, protect and listen I don't disagree with the fact that Barclays Pass protection has to get better. He has to be able to do that in order for defense is not to take advantage of him. Barkley knows it's a simple thing. If he can't pass protect defenses are just going to blitz every time they see him in the backfield on a passing situation, keep him in the backfield. Keep him from running pass routes and getting out into space. In making catches where he can get one on one match ups. And create big plays for the giants and if he can't pass protect well enough to to keep. Daniel Jones upright that's going to be a huge issue. Listen saquon responded to To Barclays remarks in his Media Zoom Video Conference on Thursday and he he said he has respect for barber he.

"Okay and then Then I went and met him and he's not tell you it's worse can't describe how excited I am and when you have a conversation with this man you can just look the look in his eye like he has a look in his eyes describe. What does this like like is Louise's piercingly? And he's really like everything you could see detail like even like what the conversation that you have when he tells you how the team's GonNa be. I was going to be the focus on what's going to be the mindset and you could see that you can you know that we have a guy that's GonNa come here and set the standard and And that's why it's important it's very important for the. The head. Coach is set the standard in the office coordinator to you know. Follow that message in leaders like myself Daniel and Ogle train all those guys into trickle down to the team. So we all can be on one one page and I think that's a takeaway talented gains estimates when you have a common goal or common theme that what's your wise team. Yes yes you are able to hold each other accountable for it I think that hopes for successive team. You already know that's the thing that we're going to set. They were closed judge. Yeah I I mean certainly since Matt Rule and a lot of folks in New York City thought he was going to be the guy and he had a press conference the day before and he crushed his press conference or like. I think this guide. You know obviously winning and losing on Sundays in the fall or Thursdays Mondays in the falls. What's most important you have to win the press conference? I thought he crushed so I just I saw golden. Take this tweet now. I WANNA play right now. I mean So were you there that day when you know I was not different. A press conference is that I think I was around town and I think the next day off just coming back into town that day and next day I went in and Just sat down me. The Indiana Jones actually sat down. Because judging you know just had a nice little talk how was ally this year You know obviously you. So you know the season problem to go to like and After two games Dj Kim came in. And that's the thing that you respected by the most you have a a sixteen year old vet WHO's to time every piece of two time superbowl winner? There's a future hall of Famer and to be able to have a guy come in and lose his job But still in Iraq team the way he did and still help them Jones away he did the show. You how much classy hasn't young player. You know you look up to that and those are things that you take notice a few more minutes left here with saquon Barkley who wins the superbowl. What are you got old-fashioned defense run the ball No you know maybe I'm bicycling running running back but okay I know where the game is. You know. Everyone thinks passing the ball and passion. Homes is unbelievable talent Kelsey Hill and they have so much over there But uh-huh forty dollars when the top two defence planet super. Well there are fifteen and five. So I'm GonNa go with the team. That has great defense and and they have a stable running back off on the ball and Jimmy G. who who's a heck of a quarterback and will Kendall as amazing tight end opposite have amazing download around but I think the forty niners and the the forty niners. They're gonNA win this thing. The chiefs don't play the giants next year. Do they I don't know we play the forty niners though right I I would like to be able to play this. Vote the watching. Let's talk about old spicer. Let's talk about What what would you bring to the equation here today? Ultra spice ultra-smooth You know for me. Everyone knows me. I'm kind of like a low key.

LeBron James Debuts 'The Glass Helmet Project' Featuring Saquon Barkley
"Couple of weeks ago. I upset the l._b._a. Community the bron- apologised colleges community lebron james suffers from fame and social media diction the aftermath lebrons. Hey look at me antics at his son's a you game i said fame as an addiction more dangerous than cocaine nate burleson and other members of the community rushed to the internet to preach to the world lebron. That is a good daddy. They take care of his kids. Well at the risk of upsetting. I'm going to once again point out that the latest of the latest it is example of the negative side effects of lebron's addiction to fame the thirty four year old basketball star claims to have identified football's most unique challenge and further claims to have invented solution class helmets players being assigned a helmet and do not have no voice and no one knows who they are because of the helmet and no one ever truly know on that there's actually a person inside there and not taking that seriously they will be seen by uninterrupted did and this right here is the farce glass helmet and meaning behind it is all these great athletes athletes that play our wonderful sport football will be heard and we'll be saying because they are at the end of the day they are people as well. They take these helmets off and they are people when they have the helmets on as well so when i first saw this. I thought it was a comedy skit. Get thought lebron was having some fun and then i watched a four minute youtube video titled the glass helmet project tackling one of football's most unique challenges. Oh sweet jesus. I think the broader series the bronze side kick maverick carter some nondescript former n._f._l. Player andrew hawkins and an artist artist are pushing the notion that glass helmets or symbolic glass helmets would liberate and humanize oppressed n._f._l. Players i can walk down the street. Be the star football team and nobody knows who i am because people don't recognize you. Ah as players were kind of looked at as warriors or gladiators right and gladiators aren't people who you remember their name take a lot of people when it comes to football they cheer for the laundry in the sense that they refer their teams more than having a direct connection with the players hopefully one day we'll see glass is home is on the
"saquon barkley" Discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show
"As the psychology of it, you him six, and you're tying yourself to this kid, and you better be right or else. Everybody gets fired. And I mean, you know, the work out there talent on this offense saquon Barkley at an ingrown, golden Tate stowing shepherd. The offensive line is much improved. Still not great. But you know, it's a real Hernandez. Kevin Zeitler pretty good core for your offensive line. I just you know, this is eighteen that you'd figure that they're gonna be there. Any train win games? Running the football with Barclay and playing great defense and that worked in Carolina with Cam or they had a guy who was much better quarterback than thinking. We'll give them credit for but had a very good running game with camping Utah. Chunk of it. And very good defense. I I don't know that even after using first round picks on extra Lawrence and the Baker nothing against them. But I don't know what this defense is really very good, given you know, the guys we're seeing on paper here. I I don't think it's great either. And a y'all have to answer the question what you get return for Beckham. Oh. Extra-large integral peppers and who's the other guy that? Good for you. I actually right. We'll have had to teach me like teaching named seven times on the podcast today. Yeah. I mean, I think. Yeah. I mean, it's it's could be taking Josh Allen six overall, maybe doesn't fix the defense. I just felt like they were gonna go just load up defensive players. Maybe try and make a little bit of a run this. You're using you lie. And I it just feels like everything good that the giants did with this draft is all outweighed by the criticism and the concerns about the no Jones six overall. So moving on in terms of Josh Allen just mentioned do you like the Jags taking him seven, even though? I mean, the strength thirteen was ready. Pretty clearly their defensive line. Yeah. Yeah..
"saquon barkley" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Do this people do this where a year or two years or three years out who would you have taken, and we even do it farther than that? But you know, the giants took saquon Barkley, and so if you redrafted according to bleach report, they would take Sam darnold with that pick. And you start to wonder, and I've said this before look I'd still take saquon Barkley. I know it's a quarterback driven league. I don't know what. Sam darnold is going to be. I know what saquon Barkley can be and already was for his rookie year. I know you need a quarterback to win. You gotta have a franchise quarterback is Sam darn because if that's the case, then if I say, well, how about Lamar Jackson would you have taken Lamar Jackson instead of saquon Barkley. Probably not. So is it just Sam darnold? Does anybody agree that the giants in retrospect should've taken Sam darnold? Paulie does. Mclovin. You do I go darnold. Yeah. Okay. Even though you don't know what he is. Why came on a little bit the end the last year a lot of promise, you know, what you better year the Rosen. That's what I'm kind of going on. Okay. If you redrafted would you would you take a Josh Rosen? If you know, so it's only Sam darnold is the only take an Allen to Josh how take Josh Ellen over sake. One. Boy, if I were to draft, I probably go one Baker to darnold three Allen. And then maybe just because I read all these websites like pro football focus on they're like the run game is worthless. In the NFL, you'd not going to add your win total by having a great running back, and there's just tons of evidence on that. But he is multi talented. There's there he catches the ball out of the backfield. So he's awesome. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he had eighteen. Eight hundred yards for average, and the giants couldn't translate that into wins for a lot of reasons, but it's hard. Tim Darnell wouldn't have played last year. Sam darnold wouldn't play this year. Right. If you're gonna keep eat li- manning is Sam darnold gonna play. So you you're gonna waste two years of a contract that you want to build around because the rookie contract for a quarterback is not that expensive here. Yes. See? But if they had drafted Sam darnold, they probably would have pushed Eli out at this point. Right. You give them one year. And then maybe right? When you realize that wasn't going the right way, just to make sure you sort of still stay high in the drafted you put in darnold. Maybe maybe he's you're starting quarterback this year, but you would have probably wasted one year with him. I'm guessing because the giants are talking about if they take Dwayne Haskins or one of these quarterbacks Daniel Jones, they're gonna learn from Eli manning that that's what that's you know, who they're bringing these guys aren't ready to play. Now. Kyla Murray's probably the only quarterback who's gonna play right away. If he goes there Zona and Josh Rosen his trated he plays right away Dwayne Haskins doesn't play right away. Daniel jones. Doesn't play right away. Drew lock doesn't play right away. And that's that's where it's dangerous. If I get the quarterback, and I get that five year window where I can build around him with that contract..
NBA Draft 2019: Latest 1st-Round Order, Predictions
"And ladies and gentlemen, we have a new mock draft out Mel kiper Jr's three point. Oh is here with us. And we are looking forward to the draft. Mel will join us in just about an hour to talk about the new mock draft. But there have been some changes in the draft specifically one less quarterback. Now going in the first round then in mel's two point oh mock draft. So we have four in the two point oh mock draft with Daniel Jones from Duke rounding out of the last pick of the draft to the patriots in the first round of thirty two. There are only three quarterbacks now in the first round, according to mel's latest mock. And obviously a retirement might be a big reason why and the quarterbacks have changed as well. Right. As far as where they're they're going. Well, Cuyler he still has Tyler going number one derozan. Well in his last draft Cuyler going number thirteen to the dolphins. So now and this draft he hasn't going number one. He had. Dwayne Haskins going number six at a giant Kyle Murray. Going number thirteen to the to the dolphins. Drew lock going fifteen to the Redskins and Daniel Jones going thirty two to the patriots. So as you mentioned Daniel Jones now out of the first round, according to the latest mock draft by Mel kiper, just three quarterbacks Murray number one. The main says Dwayne Haskins at number six, and you start to hear reports that the giants may go defense was six and then was seventeen go quarterback. But right now twain Haskins at six and then drew lock sitting there at number thirteen for the dolphins. Does the only three quarterbacks in this latest first round. Yeah. Going to be very interesting because we know what the giants listen one thing. Dave Gettleman has made very clear he does not feel beholden to tell us his plan. And so I don't feel overly beholden to believe. A lot of what we're hearing coming out of the giants can't because if you've got a guy who's basic messages trust me, I got this. Well, then we understand he doesn't feel like he has to tell us the truth. So as we hear these things. Coming out. We also understand this time of year is about deception to an extent it's trying to manipulate the draft order trying to manipulate the opinions of certain players. So that you can try and put yourself in the best position to get the guys you ultimately want. So it makes it difficult to try and read the tea leaves it is although I have to say on cattlemans behalf. He said all of last spring saquon Barkley is a generational talent with the second overall pick. And that's where he went. Look, I think we all agreed. There has to be a quarterback in the giants future. Whether it's at six or seventeen trade now Cleveland, but it would not surprise me in the least if Dave Gettleman waited until the second or third round to take a quarterback this Dave Gettleman, he created that created, but he he made the term a more of a vernacular in the NFL draft hog molly's when he was the GM of the Carolina Panthers. He loves the big guys to hog mollies. And let's be honest. This draft is going to be decided outside of Kyla Murray. More than anything else about the big defensive lineman in this draft. The hog Molly is on the defensive side of the ball. So depending on your draft grades for your quarterbacks you could take one of those at six and then a quarterback at seventeen it all depends again on your on your draft great. If twain Haskins is highest on the board and draft grades. You don't pass that up. If you have a Dwayne Haskins drew lock. And whatever other quarterback equal in grades. You know, maybe use that seventeen pick baby can trade it up somehow to get one of those guys as I said, this always comes down to grades. Do. You have a choice amongst grades. Are you close enough in quarterbacks where if you don't get one you try and get the other? But we'll see we'll see, you know, one of the biggest changes in from the last two this for Mel was they had the patriots taken Daniel Jones a quarterback, and this one I serve Smith junior the tight end from Alabama going, and that would not be shocking at all you have really three out of the top tight end Hopkinson the kid from Iowa teammate, Noah Fant, and then Smith junior all three likely to go in the first round a three first round tight end to on the same team come on. And what would that tell you as we saw? The patriots jump into the first round and take a running back and Sony Michelle at the end of that. And now to see in the next year three tight ends going. We've talked about this. However, you want to split it. Last year were Quinton Nelson. Went in the top ten in the draft as an offensive guard. We saw roquan Smith going the top ten as a middle linebacker. The middle of the field is worthy. NFL is being built right now. And other teams are starting to catch up to what the patriots have done for years. The way that we've seen teams export that specific area and three tight ends in the first round would hammer that home not denying that. They are guys that are certainly probably more talented than usual tight end groups. We're used to seeing but it's also about value. It's why you see running back taking it to overall by the giants last year. I mean, the other thing is I think they're more interior linemen in this first round then quarterbacks right? Like, a not tackles guards and centers. There are more of those according to males latest mock than there are actual quarterbacks being taken which would be very unusual. So the top five in this new draft that Mel kiper put out is Kylie Murray. Number one of the cardinals Nick both the D N number two to the forty Niners. Number three. Josh Allen the outside backing backer pass rusher going to the jet number four Cornyn Williams. To the raiders and number five guy making a pretty big jump. Devon white going to Tampa Bay at five in the last mock draft he was number eleven to the Bengals now in mel's draft. He is sitting at number five number six twain Haskins seven Joon Taylor. The offense attack from Florida going to Jacksonville sweat, the D N going to the lions at eight Sean, Gary the D N going into the bills from Michigan and TJ Hopkinson. The tight end going to the Broncos at number ten. Here's here's what I wanted to talk to Mel about and one of the issues that I have laid on me big fella with with this draft comes, you know, some some point and one of them is there are few prospects in new first round projection who are making their debuts because of their combine performances. There are four guys who have jumped into mel's first round who weren't out there before again based on the combine combine performances. I don't understand that. I don't I don't understand that. If you wanna say. You looked at the combine to go back and look at tape of them. But to say, they're combine performance jumped them up that doesn't compute to me. Well, I think that's I think that's the assumption though, is because of their performance you went back and look and that. That's fair. That's why I want to ask them. How did this? Make you go back and study them more. Because if you're just basing things off the combine I got a real issue with that. Yeah. I I don't think you would do that or teams. But at the same time, you look at the positions of the majority of the players that would be involved in that. And I think this could be true for teams as well. It's interior offense. It is right. Three interior offensive linemen Terry McLaren the wide receiver, but when it comes to interior offensive lineman. You wanna talk about an area where the scouting grossly lags behind to actually great and overall draft. It's a difficult area for a lot of people to see and understand because you don't have the benefit of a lot of stats. You don't have the benefit of even the combine members necessarily always translating to production. So when those guys go and they paying and they flag in the model somewhere for what they do at the combine. And then you go back and spend some more time looking at a guy like Lindstrom who wasn't going to be a big name. He wasn't like, you know, Gary bradberry from North Carolina State won the Remington award this year. Like that guy was a stud Boston College was a middling. Okay. ACC team this year. So Lindstrom wasn't getting the credit. He deserved even being as good as he is. So you go back now, and even these NFL teams, maybe we're late to the party on some of these guys all of a sudden start giving them an extra. That's why I want to ask I just wanna make sure with Mel that because I'm just reading from the combine performance, and again, let's put a name. To those you mentioned McLaren the wide receiver who is one of the others. Chris Lynch reminder, you just mentioned from Boston College now. Number twenty one to Seattle Eric McCoy interior linemen going number twenty two to Baltimore. Right and the Garrett bradberry. The Senator from North Carolina State who is you mentioned one the Remington award is the best center in the country number thirty one to the LA Rams where they have an aging center, and John John Sullivan. And that was that was one of the things have been saying for the Rams the last couple of years that dynasties been built on the interior. If you land a guy like that good, Lord or you winning out it is. So we'll see how that plays out. Now, the one thing that I find interesting he he has drew lock the third quarterback Mel dozen his latest mock going thirteen in Miami. I'm telling you don't take out Denver at ten in Cincinnati of eleven in play for quarterbacks. I mean. Yeah. Denver made the play for Joe flacco. But John Elway has messed this up a couple of times with all due respect. I mean, that's just outside of getting Peyton Manning. He has not figured out the quarterback spot there at ten they might be in play for quarterback. And you have Andy Dalton with his situation with the Bengals and his contract situation. I, you know, I think that there's a really good chance that they could be in play with a quarterback there, by the way, by the way, Mel kiper Jr's mock draft not the biggest item related to the draft this week. That will have news for you guys. What more on that coming up later? This week

"saquon barkley" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"So y'all heard saquon say followed me on Twitter, right? Well, a lot of things I want. I wanna start preface this by saying the Commissioner still talking at his state of the state press conference, and he didn't really give state of the state address that the commissioners usually give any more. I think he's done that a while. He just says a few words about the whole city and then takes questions and he's still doing it right now. And we'll get to what he said he did in fact address several questions about the NFC champ game get to that second. You wanna put a question as to who's nicer sake wanted to Shawn Watson, both of those guys were able you know what I mean? Like, you wanna talk about faces of the NFL that everybody who roots for the sport and wishes for the sport. Success can go ahead and go into the communities and just be faces and be people. I mean, they're they're really really nice guys. Now. A really nice now. That's the preface that's the preface here. Saquon was not following me on but moments ago after he strolled off the set. He addressed the situation head on. And as you could see on the screen, I screen grabbed it moments ago notification saquon Barkley follows you so high. Hi. Thank you, Donna. I mean, you know, I'm I've I've been at this. I've been at this awhile. And I've been able to do a few things. It's my sixteen Super Bowl. I've got a lovely wife and married. Fifteen years got three kids as lot going on. But very proud of that. Now saquon Barkley follows me, I mean, that's a huge compliment in my life and my not following the show account. But that's what is wrong with that kid. I think it's bad guy bad character. Suddenly that's great having them here. Okay. Before your news update. Let me give you a little news update. As to what the Commissioner, he came out spoke very nicely about Atlanta. He's still talking. I will say this when you do speak to the entire NFL media community. There are many members of the press who have their own agendas, and by that I mean their own local situation, for instance, question three was from Sam farmer who asked about all the the California based teams three or four of them are playing in makeshift homes. We know the Rams are in the Coliseum. The home of the Los Angeles galaxy's with the charges playing for couple years. The raiders are now we believe are going to be in temporary spot well unit they stayed put where they've been playing temporary spot 'cause they're going to Vegas and the Commissioner basically said when asked pointblank sandiego an option. For the chargers. He said he thinks that Mark Davis wants to stay in the bay area where raiders fans are and did not say I understand your look now that yes, the raiders fans are in Oakland. The why are they going to they're going Las Vegas? But you know, what he says I of course, but so there really wasn't much of an answer. Their question too was from a local reporter here in Atlanta asking about what does it land to have to do to get the Super Bowl back? Maybe have it not be twenty five hundred. No, no, again, it's it's everybody's the hospitality. Here has been terrific. People are amazed. Honestly, you don't walk an inch in this town without somebody saying you you need help where do you need to go? Do you need directions? I mean, seriously hotel lobbies are filled with people, I got cheered welcome to Atlanta coming off the plane..

I'm doing great excellent. You know, it's funny this week. I heard I don't know if you heard this. But. Greg Williams who to me. Why don't really work in Cleveland locally in the week? And I have no desire for Greg Williams to remain the long-term coach Gregg Williams. I think he's about as old school is old school gets and he referred to some advanced analytics this week. And I almost was brought to tears Sam because well, I think I think that all sports need to have a good balance between old school scouting and new school analytics you'll so many old school football guys are so hesitant look where we are in baseball. Now. Right. The sport is completely run. Everybody has an analytics department in basketball and football is dragging their feet a little bit more in some organizations, but the here an old school coach like Greg Williams referred to some advanced analytics. That was that was wild for me to hear it must have. I don't know if you heard it. But it probably would've made you happy. If you did. Yeah. I think you're right football is behind baseball. And how that kind of stuff is gone, but everybody understands that it can help you how you present it to all of these people know, so head coaches are often the last guy to get on board. But it's because you need to present it to them in in the right away. Now, there's a ton of ways that say the PS database can help is those guys. But if you come to them initially where you know, something they don't wanna hear they're not going to buy. But if you immediately show them something, you know, a fancy pretty grasp the chosen exactly what they've been saying for years, suddenly they're all on board. So I think a lot of teams the league you're just starting to sort of see this time where the analytics guys or people that have been using the stuff within the Bill. Building for years are finally starting to figure out how to present it to coaches added presented to general manager is and you know, the guys bad again in front of the media. And that's when you're starting to see this filter out. I think it's been used a lot within the building for years already. But now we're starting to see those guys use it on a daily basis and get the headline stuff sent to them in a way that they're they're much more comfortable with gesturing at an and actually taking it on board. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analysts Sam. Baker Mayfield has had a tremendous season. As a rookie as put up some big old school numbers if you will. But when when you went from a pro football, focus perspective when you guys run the numbers on what he's done. How would how does he great out compared to some other rookie quarterback's of the past? Yeah. I think you do need to go to quarterbacks with a pass because he hadn't shoulders above any other rookie season right now. He's a top ten grade quarterback in the NFL. He's tense overall. Just one physician behind Russell Wilson. So you're already talking about it really really well graded player right off the five. And obviously pro football focus was very high invade your Mayfield coming out were the guy is the winter by for him saying that he was the best prospect in this draft in it really wasn't close to the next guy. I think so far. That's that is being born out. We have seen better performances in the past rookies. I think that twenty twelve season was a pretty incredible year for rookie performances. Obviously it didn't last because RG three in particular had a phenomenal season that year, and then tours and really hasn't been the same player since. But you know, Baker Mayfield is looking as good as we've seen any rookie quarterback. Look probably dating by twenty twelve season. We're seeing some really impressive play from him. And I think his play generally has been better than even the statistics suggest because you had one of the highest rates in the NFL right five and drop rates. And unlike most of the times when a receiver drops the ball, it's an incomplete passes. It's not doing that much damage to your passer rating, or whatever but Baker mayfield's have multiple assets that have been hit his receivers and my hands and ended up as interceptions. So those are taking a sledgehammer to operating over the course of the season. It's ninety three. Point four right now. And this is a season where passing is exploded operating ninety three point four is nice great at the moment. But it's his performance has been way better than that. We're talking with Sam Monson lead analyst pro football, focus Sam, let's talk about another rookie and that saquon Barkley who probably be battling Baker Mayfield for rookie of the year. From an offensive standpoint. There's been other good rookie running back but saquon Barkley make over two thousand total yards this season. How does he compare to Todd Gurley Leonard four nets and some of the other big rookie seasons from running backs? Yeah. I mean saquon Barkley just moved into first edition CFS running back rankings. He's the the number one guy right now through the through part of the season. He's been incredible. He's been everything that everybody who was championing him saying he would be coming out. I think he's been better than we thought. He might be there. The idea that he was a perfect running back prospect that don't think really holds up work holes in his game in particular. This tendency to to be a bit. Reggie Bush in terms of wanting to balance everything outside to look for that clay, but he's gotten a lot better in his first year at not doing that at taking ugly yards when they're there. And that's all there to be had. And it's still maximizing goes explosive plays getting huge games. Those are there. So he has been fantastic. I think again he's been as good as any rookie running back the receipt for a number of years. Really? He's I guess he's played as well. As Alvin Kamara did last year as a rookie on he's done more fulltime base. So he already has you know, two hundred more snaps than Kamara managed all last season playing that same kind of rate is Amari Cooper. Has memorial Cooper's play been much better. Or is just a the players around him made him much better. I think it's a bit of both, you know, playing wide receiver it so difficult to play. Well, if the ball isn't coming in your direction off the ball is coming in your direction in attachable manner. Having you can do about it. There's only so much fancy route running against air. You can do if the ball isn't coming your way. So I think we're seeing Amari Cooper was always a quality route runaround player that would get consistently open. And now we're seeing what happens when you target that guy. He's still a very good player and I play put up big numbers. And obviously, that's that's meaning that his greatest better because he's being given the ball and that talent is being maximized. So you know, I think that that was always there that that talent that play was always inherited his game. Even in Oakland. The raiders just weren't making use of it. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analyst. Sam. I know you guys today had an article about projecting Cuyler Murray's pro potential. I'm curious because obviously he's a top ten pick and major league baseball. He's giving compared to Ricky Henderson. He signed a four and a half million dollar bonus. There would have to give it back obviously at a even a better year than Baker Mayfield did this past year in college, which is hard to believe. But obviously, you know, people make a thing about the thing about Baker mayfield's hike, which I thought was over rated. But obviously calamari isn't even close those big as as Baker Mayfield. A what is his potential d do you think he could be a good NFL quarterback? I think he could be, you know, you're right people that the highest the big question Mark because people did make an issue out of Baker Mayfield. Tighter on Baker Mayfield is short for an NFL quarterback. But not, you know, it's not unprecedented. We've seen quarterbacks Baker Mayfield type successful in the past. They're not obviously, not as many as there are as you know, six with three quarterbacks, but those guys have existed and they've been good in the past. I don't I don't know that we've ever seen quarterback that is Kyla Murray's Hite house significant success at the end up, right? You know, he is going to be when we get the official number on him. If it ever gets that far he's going to be significantly shorter than even a guy like Russell Wilson. And you would be in legitimately uncharted territory. When it comes to that. Now, if you're going to do that, you have to be there has to be something else to say, well, okay. That's not going to be a problem because of this and his grading has been incredible. His is great this season at Oklahoma has been basically everything is as as good. As Baker mayfield's grade had been on that was the best we've ever seen from a quarterback, right? The best seasons we've ever seen at college with one of his own. So he has a level of the best play. We've ever seen coming out of college from a college quarterback. And we've been doing this going back to two thousand fourteen but we've seen some pretty good quarterbacks over that's fine. You know, we went back, and we also graded James Winstons freshman seasons. We have got Carson Wentz you got Jared Goff. We've got right. And they got all these guys and Carl Amari stacks up to those guys. Sorry.
Saquon Barkley leads Giants' destruction of Redskins
"Game here we can make quick because it was ugly saquon Barkley and the giants crushed the Redskins forty two sixteen all those points came late in the game for the Redskins. No Odell in this games to find you. He was ruled on Saturday surprise. Yeah. Still bizarre. You know, we heard about it. I on Friday when he was limited in practice, and it sounded like there wasn't a ton of information around it. But sounded like not a lot of concern. Either though exactly because they didn't end up on the pre-game injury report that's filed on Friday evenings. And then on. Saturday. We found out ruled out for the music fan. So it's hard to know because of the bizarre way in which it came about just how serious this is. But so stay tuned all they were saquon Barkley fourteen for one seventy on the ground with a touchdown for the Redskins. Mark Sanchez has been benched in favor of Josh Johnson. I think was quarterback three on the week, which is just ridiculous. And then he watched Madden to get to know his teammates. Quote from the post game yet. We're just like, well, he honestly like he was signed last week. When Cole McCoy was injured on Monday night a week ago. They needed a backup quarterback, Mark Sanchez. And so they signed Joshua Johnson have been with a team that less than a week. And he ends he's going to end the week as a top five fantasy quarterback a guy that wasn't on a NFL roster seven days ago, and I mean and obviously start this game. I'll listen a lot of it was just to be very clear about this much of it was in junk time against backups in very soft cover. It was of course. Total jumped pavers down funny. We're not saying like in case it was like injust Johnson. Ben name the star. But in case, you're like, hey, Josh the thing Josh Johnson's not a thing. It's a brutal offensive line. It's a law season for the Redskins. It's just a a look I think they're now at and we'll see we made it to week fourteen before Jordan Reed got hurts to he did he did he he made it over on the over under of wind. Jordan reed. Mike. Misery yet but foot injury. Obviously in a lot of pain had to be held back to the locker room. I would not be planning on Jordan Reed being available at the moment. I believe the Redskins have eighteen guys on injured reserve. We'll see if Jordan Reed get shut down for the year. It certainly would make Vernon Davis did Vernon Davis. Make your way beyond the waiver wire com, which you'll be out later on this afternoon. Nothing there's a lot of hoping that Washington offense. But there are also again, very few tight ends that you can trust. So Vernon Davis will be on the waiver wire column. Kyle. We have all racked our brains for the only other tight end besides George kit with two seventy plus yards receiving three three my best. Guess was Vernon Davis. Matthew, who's your best?
The Giants Actually Won A Game
"About the New York football giants. They actually won a game night. Football matchup against two powerhouses the giants and the forty Niners. Look pretty good about it around the pocket. Odell Beckham in the end zone Beckham had two touchdowns saquon Barkley look good look at this past there in the same. Twice in a row. Saw that one Jalen is there a little civil dark cloud. That is the giants season the silver lining is the person that ally shaking his hand. Nobody knows who it is Nick Mullins because the San Francisco forty Niners are not a good football team. They're not feel from my brother Richard Sherman. Having a play with this team this. This basically vying for top pig. The giants are talented group. Ofensive Lii in their perfect example of trying to build your squat through the skill players. Isn't probably the smartest way. Look dare division. If you were going to talk about who has the most talent just sheer touto question that USA giants have more than Philly, Washington and Dallas maybe combine. But why the last couple of seasons have all of those teams been better than them. Because he's not that good. The line is not that good the substance the lines, correct? And so for that. I'm not surprised clearly that Dale TD's saquon Barkley terrific sterling shepherd caught the game winning touchdown. But we know what's going to happen. Right. You know, it's gonna happen. Right. Cannot cannot break. Some news breaks news right now, what's gonna happen here. As a news happened bench. La. For the guy that ran over the cop. Big bench. Eli ran away just in want to do it. Because that guy had just gotten trouble have been playing attention for national media consumption. He's been in trouble with the law. Couple of times for some reason. We just don't talk about it. So I think later in this year sued they dream of Alah struggling he my stomach coming out of the tunnel. They bench. We know what's going to happen. This is last year allies last year in the National Football League. No, he's a man play as long as he wants to play in a different uniform next year. Yes, if he wants to play, well, I know a team that needs a quarterback Buffalo
New York Giants, Manning And Saquon Barkley discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"Giant steak just when you thinking like that what are you? Discover you discovered at the New York Giants still have a little bit of life in them. If that's how you wanna look at it ally. Manning leads a game winning drive got back pages talking about, you know, the era that change in ariz- from and moving beyond ally. We may have spoken to soon. Allies still hasn't blah, blah, blah lays man for less than two hundred yards. He threw for less than two hundred yards. This is see See it. it. We're going to be honest about it. That's what we gotta do pay attention to this kind of stuff. He manning did not look bad last night. But in knock anybody socks off ally. Manning. Completed nineteen thirty one passes for a hundred and eighty eight yards three touchdowns. Not an exception. Only sacked wants. And you just look down a list. And what does this come down to this comes down to a question? And as only a two part ants, what you happy about what you saw from Ila Odell Beckham junior saquon Barkley and a crew or do you find yourself sitting here today thinking that the New York Giants are the biggest idiots the NFL has seen in quite some time. Because the reality is that if you want the number one overall pick in the NFL draft, you don't go out there. Having just one win on the season and beat a one win eight you're battling for purgatory. You're battling for up two. You're bad. You're battling to be recognized as the very worst there by being the team that needs the most help. That's why you would get the number one overall pick this supposed to be doing. Now, some people say, well, Stephen they wanted as opposed to do I agree with that. What are you supposed to do if L Beckham was targeted eleven? By the way, and all you have four receptors seventy three yards albeit touchdowns, but Beckham Julia and saquon Barkley out on a field, you should be trying to win football games. However, if you wanna lose on purpose why you plan any of them. Why don't you bitch alive down? Why are you holding a traffic violation against kala? Let backup quarterback who the hell cares. Now granted I'm not advocated that he was right to break the laws certainly not to try run over police. That's just quite stupid. But let's be really what trying to run over to police lays gentlemen, I'm very very familiar with this route that he takes I'd take that route all the time four ninety five and sometimes they barricade or ward off these certain roles that allow you to get to destinations quicker, but take your leeann rush hour traffic, personally speaking, I think the letter tobacco quarterback has gotten a bad rep.
"saquon barkley" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"So that's my only argument, but the idea that they were going to take ally out, wasn't the issue and everybody said, oh, we signed saquon Barkley you get, you get a running back. You get your receivers back and that'll give ally that'll help. Upgrade the offensive line, and he should be held has been held. Not at all. They're still last year were one in five. At this point here they are again another bad season route. I'm not saying it's all allies fall, but if I was a receiver of Odell Beckham talent, I would be upset that this is what this is what I got, and no matter how poorly he plays. Nothing's going to change. So the acting out part, I get it. You can't be mad at him because this is who he is. We talk about this all the time. If you had a problem with him, what he you do last year went to kicking Ned and all the other stuff that went on. You could easily said we're going to get rid of them, make it trae. We're not gonna, give him the money. 'cause to me when a guy's loud skip prior to getting all the money, he's only going to be louder because now he end country security, he's gonna get paid. He knows it. The giants knew it and they're stuck with them, and he's going to act out for the rest of the year because here's. Another bed, New York, football giants season? Well, I'm gonna take a little step further. You say he's going to act out for the rest of the year. He's gonna act lot along with the giants. That's what this is. Money only makes you worse to makes you more what you already are and I look, I get it and people like, well, that's not the problem. Is he the solution? See, do your part of the problem. You're part of the solution, one hundred. If simple of that, okay. He's trying to get a team who gets inspired by doing that. That's what I wanna know who is inspiring who's he firing up because he says he did. He said what he's trying to galvanize the team. He's trying to bring the team together who. You know what's give if they were losing the game last night and there had ten for book fifty, five or two touchdowns doing the same thing can live with that even though he going up and bra. How good, but if only when he's not getting tier for buck fifty, five and a touchdown is getting a little piddly yard. The little thinly can't have six for four. Do we see him act out like this? So I'm not surprised, but the hairs the pain, and it's not all their fault because I believe, oh, they'll get the ball. It could help own antics. Just math just keeps us from looking at some of the bigger problems. He lamenting his of land, the defense. So you know me, I'm gonna look all over the. I look all over. They told this, this is what coach Belichick. Now I'm not saying that he's right more role, but this what coach Bela check tries to reveal that you get old on the job, you you always say. He rather give you a year or two early than a year or two late. Let's the branch Rickey and you're not going down the vinyl me. I will let somebody up pluck you. You don't you down the vital. Try to play our one year before you think you should. Right. So that's that's the guess, west killed all the money in the world. Canaan, courage him to do right when you've been well, mostly it's going to encourage him to to continue to derive yet. What got me skip if a kid throw the tantrum in the grocery store, you'll give him ice cream cookies the candy they get, right. They got to stop if every time he goes into the grocery store from doing fair tantrum. You were warning with that cheese. Why would he stop. But you were warned to be careful how you reinforce negative behavior, but he, they, they part of the problem, but allows a bigger part of his allies apart defense apart owning the little part, but he's a part of the problem. Yep. So what are we seeing at the position of wide receiver in the National Football League? Eight has become the most volatile position in all of sports because only wide receiver in the NFL. Do you have NBA like stars because they get all the highlight..

"No one's a rookie. And then you have the veterans on the other side of me outside as well. You can call going. I would call Goodwin veteran. He's been on this second team in the league now and then Garcia, and obviously a veteran tread Taylor. He's second year player, Hendrick born the second year player, and you got the rookie. So you got some good young talent and some good veteran town on that cuisine, corporal, the Niners, Jimmy, g. he's an executive knife with the ball and the intermediate passes. So those guys are all going to be. Those guys are perfect for him coming into this year. Looking around the league here. I mean, kind of it's kind of interesting because you have some trade-offs. Obviously, especially in even on the first round, you have trade offs. You have Zeke Elliott versus saquon Barkley. You have David Johnson for saquon Barkley. I would say I, I wouldn't say girl belting. There are more closer to the top half of the draft, but I would say cream hunt versus saquon Barkley. I mean, cream hunt, honestly, coming into the second year isn't going to be considered in the veteran value. He could still be considered a young gamble because he kind of fell off a little bit of the last year me maybe in the middle. He kind of picked it up at the end. But in the middle of the year, he kind of disappeared for all all of a sudden and they'd say, quantum, obviously, we have no idea really to have an you can think of an idea. You can have you say, oh, he's gonna be great. I saw what he did wasn't really that an amer- by. Yeah, I know he listed a bunch of weights and he ran really fast and he did all this stuff and his shorts. How about when when he's got, DeMarcus, Lawrence coming after him. Or Horford, or Paris, or Paris Cox, or or he's got Jilin mills on the outside coming coming down, crash on, run support. I'm just like, or actually the guy who I'm sure he's in love. The most is is what's it was name every time safety safety for the for the eagles point. Mom, I think I can't think of his name every single time. He's Malcolm Jenkins, Malcolm Jenkins is going to be saquon Barkley favorite person this year because I think Malkhaz Malcolm's in a hit him, hit him in the mouth like three or four times this year, I think because they play twice, obviously equals giants. Honestly, I'm watching. I'm watching it. I was excited. The Niners are playing the giants here because I want to see take one. I'm going to see what he can do. I really, I'm really excited. I want to be on kind of want to be wrong. I can only be right. I wanna see him struggle. I mean, I don't wanna wish any negative v. but I think that he's getting over hyped he's way over hyped way over hyped. You saw what Zeke didn't college you saw car with Christian McCaffrey didn't college you saw with the other guys. You can look at look and chimeras numbers in college, Tennessee. He's gonna catch the ball. He's catching the ball out of the backfield more often and he's running routes. But I mean, that's why I think if saquon is going to do something that's going to really help him move along in this league, it's going to be catching the ball out of the backfield. And that's why I think they couldn't pass up on them because you're basically drafting players. You've definitely receiver in drafting running back at the same time. So I think that especially this league's going the way that you're, I mean, the giants kind of figure what their quarterback situation you wanna give paid man. I mean, you lie NASA paid all-time ally. The most easiest throws possible. You're going to have a good target in your running back there and hopefully saquon. I mean, I hope I hope saquon does. Well, honestly, the plan the Cowboys are in the division. I would love to see him as a run up and down the line, the Cowboys and then have a bad day. That's like, fair time. You can't just pick you have to be kind of neutral, don't you?.

"Basically place in the faith in eli manning and now worrying about all of that chatter about needing to have a quarterback to replace him in the next couple of years i feel great about it as my friend allies my friend i root for my friends i grew up rooting for the giants i couldn't be out i think they got a guy in sick when barkley who's not only a great player but a great person with ties to the new york area that's bonus of beyond that he's gonna do for their offense which by the way other than the offensive line is pretty darn talented now do for their offense what zeke elliott fit for the for the cowboy it's on that bill tell us what saquon barkley is going to do for this giants offense because now when you're the defender rex ryan and i would talking about this yesterday when you're the fensive coach you say to yourself who do i have to stop well now i gotta stop over jay and now i gotta stop saquon barkley in two facets of the game how do i do that well if i gotta put eight in the box to stop saquon barkley how do i cover those wide receivers on the outside and how do i cover that tight end down the scene it puts defenses in a bind and the play action game which was non existent in giant offense for the past two or three years now comes into play and here's what the play action game does not only does it help you get the ball out but it helps the offense of linemen because they're in a position now where they don't have to drop back in pass block all the time you fake the fall of saquon barkley.

"Right yeah greg had smart tweet the other day that the the giants entire offseason feels like an apology for benching ally in order over apology the mark sanchez contract at tanenbaum gave him after peyton manning but their entire offseason is also another thing it's very telling that they think makati was terrible coach and that ally manning salvageable that this team can contend with saquon barkley and that they don't need another quarterback because the problem wasn't ally it was macadear i think they're right about the macadear but i still think an eli every chance of succeeding i mean that that group around awesome i mean arc of line bird is what they could make the argument i guess even if they're if they go six and ten this year and they're annoyed because sam darnold looking great for the jets they have a great looking offense for the next quarterback they eventually the but i just think you're in that killer schedule the quarterback they have a killer schedule if he bombs with that schedule who knows how schedules work out but the giants go five and eleven they'll still have all these studs and then they could goal in and maybe getting a quarterback next year but it is risky though because they do risk now ally falling off a cliff next year and this guy darnold playing in the same building potentially lighting up the afc east and the giants don't usually lose pr battles to the jets but it is they are walking that tight rope hoping it doesn't work a guy i think they will i think from weeks and weeks and months ago they looked to quan barclay and said i don't care who is there this is our guy they have felt they fell so hard in love with him and it was.

"The young man especial here are some numbers no school has produced more i ron running backs than penn state and no player in penn state history brush for more touchdowns than saquon barkley is also the school's all time leader in all purpose yards along side his head coach from penn saint james franklin is our great pleasure to welcome saquon barkley who tonight will hear his name somewhere very early in the nfl draft and thank you to both of you in a moment we'll have saquon explained why this will only be the second most significant thing that happens to him this week but let's start just with this notion and coach i'd love you to chime in as well this idea that a running back shouldn't go as high as a quarterback or other players because of the position why do you think it would be a mistake for teams to pass over saquon well i think the biggest thing is is what you're trying to do i guess in all businesses you trying to reduce risk and i get the history of it but when you when you talk about saquon specifically saquon and your and you talk about all the positives and all the action beauts that he has that you look for at that position body type speed strength power vision l bility to catch the ball out of the backfield the way the game is evolved so much he has all those but i think probably the more powerful thing is on all these prospects they're also looking for negatives they're looking for issues or looking for red flags and from everything i've seen and heard and what i've experienced myself there really isn't any so when you're able to get a player that i think has a chance to really change the game and really be able to make a huge impact on the nfl very quickly it's hard to pass on that.
