Um, but I just want to kind of let you, you know, give you guys that quick update here and then, um well, let's start with the Patriots Broncos recap.
And then later on, we'll talk about the next opponent coming into town, and that is the San Francisco 40 Niners.
And that's the return of our good old friend Jimmy Garoppolo.
So let's get started and we'll talk about the Broncos Patriots cam and just just open up about this game.
This is a really, really, really, really bad loss of the Patriots on many different ways to think about? Yeah, I do get that.
The Patriots had very limited amount of practiced on due to the fact that they had several players Cove in 19 list, and I'll get you guys updated in terms of who was off of it, who was on it.
So with that being said, they had to shut down the facility for several days, they had to do a lot of their practice work through virtual meetings and stuff like that.
So it's really hard to get out there and and have a good effort with no practice time.
But the biggest thing I wanted to know about and this is all always with a great coach Bill Powell, check and services.
How are they prepared going into this game? They're playing against a one and three Denver Broncos team who gave up 25 27 points to a New York Jets team that is on the verge, probably by under season off, firing their head coach in just a lot of different changes, and they barely held on to beat them.
But this is a team that law that didn't have a bunch of their top players playing, and it just comes down to that.
You should have been the better team and you are the better team.
Your you have a better coach and double check you, you're at home.
So I mean, you have all that practice time you have, you know, pretty much right, your home facility don't have no travel to worry about, especially going to Denver, which is a tough place, regardless of those fans or not.
And you put up the effort that you had against Denver.
It just yeah, I think, you know, before on Saturday, I think myself before their game on Sunday.
I really hope this is in a trap game.
But with that being said, it's a fact is is they have to be ready to go and prepared, and it just didn't seem to be that way.
I hope the homes are game.
So with that being said, it's it's just a really, really bad loss, and I thought the effort just wasn't there all game.
And the thing about guys is that the Broncos almost Katie way gave away again that they should have blown us out with the way we were playing.
Um, but Like I said, the Patriots were by far a better team going into this game, and they got two of their main guys back.
Cam Newton, Stephon Gilmore, two of your most important guys, both on your offense and defense.
And it's just the fact is, I just don't know what to say.
Uh this Broncos team isn't like the Bronco pain Manning team that were used to kind of seeing coming into Fox from putting up a huge fight.
I thought this was gonna be a game, that the Patriots might keep it close for a little while and pull it out, and I don't like the regular stand.
But as I said earlier, my first couple episodes Tuesday night, Patriots when they played the Dolphins last year, you cannot look down to your opponent.
You really can't, no matter how much practice time you have or not, because this is a game when you look back on terms of how your record goes buying this season, this is a game for the Patriots that you probably be kicking yourselves on many different levels.
But they got what passed this game.
That's just all has to do it.
They got what passes.
I was pretty frustrated the way that they played, The reason why I was more optimistic about the way that they played against the Seahawks and me to even though it was a loss is that the way that they played the effort that they played in this in that game, the effort in this game? I mean, I don't know what it waas.
I just saw a lot of guys on the sideline that just weren't really getting involved.
I think the Broncos really had more of the the energy exposed from their defense, and I'll go to their defense a little bit and they're and they're kicking situation, which is McM**** has obviously been the league for so long, but man it was because of him is because of him.
The Denver Broncos came into Foxboro and beat you on all field goals.
Just think about that and you know, always a you know, think of myself that the NFL teams that come in to face a Bill Jack team that just kicked field goals.
The Patriots more than likely than not win games because they're usually able to put some points on the board, and it just didn't turn out to be that way, I guess.
Um, but let's get into it.
I don't want to get too much into it, but, you know, that's what we're gonna have to talk about now.
So the final score was the Broncos won 18 to 12.
The Patriots scored less points against the Broncos than the New York Jets.
You just It just comes.
I mean, Plus, I'm not here to overreact by animals.
I get sick and tired of the the the Overreactions after one game.
It's still earlier on this season.
It's still earlier on this season.
Um, you know, good teams go through a trap game here and there.
I was looking at this earlier, I think the Patriots or six and eight in their last 14 games, six and eight below 500.
So maybe it's just the matter off.
You know, the Patriots, You know, of course, is a ****stan.
I've just been so spoiled in terms of for how long dominant success, everything like that, and I think it just now to the point that, like I mentioned you guys about a month or two ago, is we're in a new era.
We're gonna go through Ah, lot of things that were not accustomed.
And that's okay, That's totally okay.
And it's just the matter of we'll have to see what we have in terms of what we have in our team.
Um, and I think in terms of the opponents replay, I think that you got to go out and put your best effort because in terms of especially what happened this past game, even one win team going into your building in Foxboro and pulling off, I would say I'm saying upset because I don't think anybody expected them to go in and beat the Patriots, no matter how thin they were.
Do you have some players on co vid? You have your best player back and Cam Newton offensively, defensively, Esteban Gilmore and you're still gonna find a way to one.
Um and it just seems like to the Cam Newton script tonight is Denver.
That's another thing to look into that I didn't I started to realize that even though Cam Moon left the team that LeBron and the Broncos, who beat Carol Cam Newton's Carolina team, the Super Bowl.
They put a lot of effort on him in that game, and they put a lot of effort the same exact way on Sunday.
So, yeah, give credit to them.
Um, you know, they almost gave us the game, which is the crazy part.
And that's why I think the Patriots the whole entire season.
Because third gonna be teams that will crack.
You gotta make your opportunities worth it.
Another thing, too, about the Patriots That just didn't go the war.
You can't turn the ball over.
Patriots had several opportunities that they turned the ball over.
They also missed a challenge call.
I think Bill Belichick, As much as I love Bill, Greatest coach, ever do it, you know he's gonna have.
You know there's gonna be times that you know he's gonna have a tough coaching game, and I think you know partly on Sunday was his fault.
In terms of the preparation, he just kind of going through that.
You know, we'll we'll see how it goes.
And I understand that I totally understand that He's obviously going through a tough time trying trying to get practice.
Guys, you know, time at the facility, on the field.
He's doing all he can.
I give him all the respect and, you know, definitely the appreciation for that.
But it just seemed like they they gave that game kind of a Y.
That was a kind of a game for the taking on that schedule before the season.
I'm like, Don't let that team go on anyone, just don't let it happen.
Well, if they play their game hard and they and they win, set your hat.
I just think this is a game that you like.
You should have been able to find a way to pull this game out, but because you turn the ball over and you just can't happen, doctors can't happen.
The NFL, no matter what, team affairs and execution and just mentally being there.
All right, so with that being said, let's go through the recap of the game.
So the final scores again was 18 12 Denver against the Patriots.
The Patriots are now two and three on the season, and that's obviously a very big rarity on this Patriots team.
I think this has been the first time there now under 500 through I mean their record through October from the start, as this remarkable picture, Tucker is just off the charts.
And I just think that, you know, we're going to the new era, that there's gonna be different things that, you know, people are gonna have to get used. Thio.
And I don't I just don't know what to say.
I'm obviously trying to be as optimistic and positive with this team as much as possible, and I'm still obviously optimistic because you still have the best coaches in the league.
So with that being said, you got to see how you could get the pieces going and how you could put it all together.
I think that's we're gonna have to see still what the team is gonna be looking like.
You got a great effort in a loss against Seattle.
Is that the kind of team that you're kinda kinda have to see or is it gonna be kind of a team that will have a big letdown on this past Sunday against the team? I came into your building along? I don't know yet.
But we will quickly go through what exactly happened? I, um I problem to the highlights because I was obviously a tough game, unless you guys want me to the people that want, But the people that want to see the island said, Well, bring him again.
But these were the highlights from ESPN.
Like the box where North and so the Broncos got on the board early in the first quarter.
Two field goals made six. Nothing.
Broncos got another field goal like Man has had a 45 and 44 yard in the first quarter.
Then the second quarter, he had a 27 yard, made it nine.
Denver early pages cut the lead back toe down to six Nick Folk with a 41 yard field goal.
And the second quarter as time was coming to a close and halftime, McM**** kicked a 52 yard field goal.
Broncos were up by 9 12 to 3, and they were smelling blood at that point.
Broncos went in the third quarter 15 to 3, 18 to 3 in third quarter.
You're thinking yourself okay? You know the Patriots really have Thio get their act together to have a chance uh, eso.
But that being said, the Patriots, thanks to, ah, along this was probably one of the politics.
There was some positives from this game.
As a matter of fact, there wasn't all that.
I mean, the most of it was pretty bad.
Just giving the cir***stance and the fact that we were playing, Um, but no, there was some.
There's a positive, and there was a 33 or four yard run that Cam Newton had probably the best room the day because the Broncos, in a phenomenal job, uh, containing him, which obviously had a good history within the past when you're on Carolina.
But Cam Newton had a great run pretty much all the way down to near the goal line, and then he was able to punch it in.
I broke, broke the plane with the ball near the goal line and got a touchdown 18 and nine.
Now the Patriots want to go for two and make it a seven point game, and Cam tried to run it in after a play action attempt, and it didn't work out.
So the nine point game and then drew lock.
I'll get into a little bit about the quarterback situation in terms of kind of how their offense did.
But true locks, Um, you made some decent throws on.
I think he's a very young, up, incoming Tide quarterback who, um, the Broncos are obviously very ex, extremely high on, But JC Jackson and Jonathan Jones had back to back passing attempts from locked at the end of the game when really the Patriots, um, you know, they had some tendencies that I that I thought would happen again on their back to happening.
Uh, Phillip Lindsay, running back for the Broncos, had a great day on the ground today.
Gotta give him credit, But, um, at the end of the game, the Broncos were, you know, trying to waste clock and, uh, Drew Lock had a mystery on a lot of silent.
Tried to Tim Patrick, who I talked a little bit about beforehand.
Skynner reported kind of the X factor and J.
Jackson, uh, up there out any man a nice play.
And so the Patriots had a chance t even punch it in.
At that point, I think that was a huge missed opportunity to go Thio make a three point game and then with that being said, uh, especially it came critical, because at the end, you don't have to worry about trying to go for, uh, you know, turnover on downs.
And then they got to get the ball back.
But you could have had a chance to kick the field goal and tie the game potentially, you know, for them to go back and change to win.
But you would be tied.
Um, but it was just too many mistakes.
Newman had 200 exceptions on the day.
I'll kind of go through the rest of his stats, not one of his best games, by any means.
Um, but, uh, lock on **** and Pat Shurmur.
There often is a corn air.
What are you doing after throwing an interception? Patriot get the ball.
Patriots get the ball back.
They get some points.
The last thing the Broncos needed to do was just turn them all over again, and the Patriots were able to get a turnover.
So it's looking like, wow, are the Broncos trying to give you this game after remotely for the fact that you really didn't deserve to win this by any means? I have a chance to.
The fact is that Pat Shurmur, well, I've never been a fan off, especially this giant stays, you know, they fired him for a reason.
He decided to go deep.
Lots of deep passes from this Broncos team.
And I didn't think this was on like a a second short for you know, it was on a short play where all they could have just done was ran the football and locked decided to go for a deep ball.
And Jonathan Jones made a nice play, Patriots uncontrolled to potentially still standing with the end.
But then, at at the end, they turned the ball over New and at an incomplete pass.
Harry, who had no catches on the games on on that game and an adult men on the other.
Another front had a very quiet game himself.
So the final score 18 to 12 Denver, uh, got the win.
They're now two and three.
They're the same record is you.
The same record is you.
As much as you want.
Thio admit that the Patriots should be the better team, that they are the better team.
You're the same record of them a to this point in the season.
So, you know, you gotta look past it, but we'll go through the stats.
Um, on this game, Drew Lock was 10 to 2400 and 89 yards passing.
No touchdowns, two interceptions.
Cures for 101 yards.
20 yards is a song Stretch a tree is secondary.
That was another great story they didn't allow.
I mean, the Broncos were this close.
The times to scoring touchdowns really close, But the Broncos never capitalized.
That's why I thought the pages still had a chance to potentially come back and pull the, uh, make this a ballgame much they did at the end.
Um, but Tim Patrick had the highest amount of catches only 4 400 yards yet the Patriots the first drive of the game when Denver had it drew lock and a great ball down the right sideline to Patrick.
Think McCarty was in coverage.
Get through it and that's the same drive, you know, had a touchdown.
No, not a touchdown.
Just a field goal. They had no touchdown.
Summer did, which makes it even more frustrating.
They didn't score a touchdown.
The page is still found a way to lose this game at Foxboro at home.
E was looking at the stats guys, and the last time the Broncos came into your to our place and had the wind was when Jake Plummer was there a quarterback, and that was, I believe I was six.
The Broncos air on the Onley teams, uh, against the Patriots that have a winning record.
Patrons have gone a couple of times, though, at home the Patriots.
Their success is at home against Denver, and obviously, that wouldn't be the case on Sunday.
But the majority of their success against the Broncos.
They'd be paying me a couple of times at Foxboro when he was a Bronco, then, obviously Tim Tebow.
Um, but the majority of the games that they struggle with is just the high altitude Denver in dinner, which is obviously, it's been It was tough to play for a long time.
Some games went our way, and obviously other games didn't but so I'm going back to the statue of Denver.
Patrick was leading receptions with 400 yards in the game, his longest reception attempts 41 yards.
It eight targets Alberta.
Welcome Bomb, who obviously took over from Noah Fan who didn't play No.
And Mama Gordon didn't play another person that didn't play.
That always giving the Patriots fits is von Miller.
So just like because it was for the taking.
If you played your game hard, even if you weren't 100% and you had the lead early and you didn't turn the ball over, it's just like I just you know, they had that game for the take, and they just didn't.
So they got him.
Like I said, they gotta move past it.
But it's just it was frustrating.
Um, Jerry, Judy.
I knew coming in that he was going to be someone to look out for.
He only had to catch for 32 yards.
He did have a 16 yard catch at one point, but you know, he had a couple missed the Broncos.
A couple of guys that miss a couple of long passes from Lockheed through some decent balls that were dropped, but overall they didn't get a lot of their passing. Andrew lock.
Only you had 10 attempts passing dark, completed of the four quarters.
Yeah, you're almost there for 20 yards.
But with that being said, still, he wasn't the biggest reason why they wanted the Broncos.
The biggest reason for the Broncos is, and this is what I was saying earlier last week.
The way the Broncos coming into your place and out of the opposite is they're gonna find them to get some turnovers they did.
Going to the Patriots can do in a 17 to 2557 yard to fix.
Jules had to make some trip plays at the end of two for two for 38 yards.
The running Russian attack got nothing really going this game.
Harris, Birkhead, White, Um, nothing on nothing more than 20 yards, even so new and had 10 carats for 76 Sergeant score.
But they're gonna have to figure out a way to really get all you know.
It's Bill Belichick.
Always have to say, Get everybody kind of instinct together.
I just don't think that they were at all on Sunday.
Get all the three fast to the game offense.
Defense special teams is, he says it.
It just wasn't there, uh, receiving.
James waited eight catches for 65 yards and Jameer Bird had three cats for 38 ISO with three catches. 38 yards.
He had a fumble loss.
That is a super.
Um, he's, you know, make a couple of plays here in there.
You gotta catch of 16 yards, but, uh, new and a couple of fumbles, Uh, because the offensive line had to get stuff with around two.
Um, sorry about that, boy apology.
Um, the Patriots defensively, Adrian Phillips has been a great sign, and so far for the team.
Given the fact that guy a guy like Duron Harmon had to leave, he's been kind of like the Duron Harmon type of this secondary pages.
Second day, I thought was fantastic.
They made a couple of really good plays, especially when the Broncos wanted to go deep.
They made a lot of great plays on the ball.
Yeah, two guys Makesem interceptions.
That could have been game changers.
They really put the broncos on their heel.
And, uh, you know, I like to see the the opposite side sometimes of the of the, uh, post can.
And your lock was saying for Denver that first, uh, interceptions on him.
You know he wanted try to go deep like they've always tried to in their offense.
For whatever reason.
At the time, hey was nervous that the characters might have had a chance to come back, so he knew for the fact that they didn't play their best.
But just a matter of that.
Our team in the New England Patriots just never had all in the game.
No rhythm, no flow of the of the offense.
Defensively, I thought was decent and special teams to kickoff return generals.
There's a couple of times where there was kicked off and Gunner was way back and then the in the end.
So I'm usually just taking me God to the 2025 yard line and he was going out, catching them and returning them back.
I'm like, I'm like, Dude, I mean, I understand you're trying to get some yards there from the return, but you're gonna pretty much, you know, because the Gunners fast, But he's not.
That guy is gonna have, like, a breakaway Tyreek Hill site speed, So yeah, realistically, the majority of those types of returns are gonna be around 2025 anyway.
So it's like just take the knee and, you know, started drive right where you should be starting to drive.
Nick Folk did his job kicking wise.
He didn't miss any field goals.
Kyle Duggar at five tackles.
I saw Kyle Duggar arms.
Their first round pick makes in place.
So there is some good, but obviously, man, Oh, man, this team has a lot of work to be done, and this was whether if they won or lost today.
But now your team, the Patriots are not too and free.
Their two wins were against Miami Week one and Oakland, we three.
Their losses, losses against Seahawks, which really was a big moral victory.
And I know we shouldn't be same moral victories, but their offense really came alive.
Um, in this game now, Seattle and retrospect has been one of the world's schemes given up.
You are passing, but still I thought it was a very good effort from that from that team.
It just came up this this short, right? Right at the end of the game, Kansas City.
You didn't have you know you were expensive going into when they had a chance.
They had their opportunities.
Uh, they had to rely on Hoyer instead.
Um, maybe with people saying with cam.
But, um, that was a game that was gonna be hard to win on then.
So you're gonna be two and two, and then you're gonna have some time all off, Uh, you know, especially what's going on.
And you're supposed to say, Okay, this is again just to take care of the Denver Broncos there, one of three.
And you like egg, you lay an egg.
It's It was just frustrating, Disappointing.
I don't know anywhere else to put it.
Um, it's gonna happen at times.
Like I said, there's gonna be some games for everybody.
That's just like, you know, man, you know, if we did this better if we did this better, um, I think the pages will do better this week.
They're getting some reinforcement reinforcements back.
So, offensive line.
The Patriots offensive line Shaq Mason had was in close contact with somebody with Cove in 19 but that being said they had to do a lot of moving pieces on Sunday, so they had to use Justin here in Isaiah when they had to use drug tuna center.
Once again, they had to use for a halt.
The right guard position, right tackle.
They used just in here.
And so they had to use a lot of backups in this game.
And really, the Broncos.
Do you mind? He gave Kim doing a lot of fence.
Some of it was him camp, this game camp.
At times I thought should have thrown the ball faster.
And maybe it's because there was guys not open.
Maybe just how quickly read which I think you did.
Um, and it definitely for sure, because obviously, Kim's coming back from Kobe 19 list.
I'm not exactly sure how much practice time he really had during that time.
If he was healthy, if if he was up to doing it.
And so I just thought that there was gonna be some rust with him.
Um, and I think that, you know, by this Sunday can a four week if majority of it and all I'm asking from the guys is by next Tuesday when they play the 40 Niners this coming Sunday, knock on wood.
The fact that they have no positive cases at all for the pages, especially because it seems like every week there as Berg.
Uh, and as I didn't mention the guys, but the Patriots had some extra positive tests.
James parents is on covert list night.
He's on the cover 19 list. Now.
Still, um, the two guys that are activated dimensions to find you can New inter activated now? So they're off of it, Sonny Must show and Shaq Mason are on.
It s Oh, so there's a couple of guys that are on that list now for covering 19.
Okay? Eso they had to recall up some guys from the practice squad.
Thio, take some of the house response away, but the Patriots are getting back.
David Andrews and David Andrews.
Uh, of course, is somebody that's really important to this team on and off the field.
So I really I really like the way that he plays and obviously, uh, you know, he's really going The mic and online calls, Uh, so you'll get him back on Sunday.
That means that you have to me, Michael.
We knew probably both guard positions and then Isaiah win.
Let's talk Shaq.
Obviously, hopefully we'll come back soon from Cover 19 so we should get a lot of a rough offensive line back, but they give this past Sunday, I think, four sacks.
And that's just not gonna cut it.
There was some timely socks of Cam Newton took, especially that final drive.
It was 2nd and 10 and he took a six starts sack.
Push it back to sec.
Uh, you know, it was gonna be a 3rd 16.
I think patrons had a couple of yards.
Next man within reach.
And, um, it just didn't work out.
Just didn't work out in this game.
Talked a little bit about this game.
Kind of had my word out.
Let's go to some other news here for the Patriots.
How could they get this team back and going? How could they? They didn't utilize their tight ends again.
I said that they need to find a way, utilize their tight ends Now.
There was there was ways that the Venus Yasser who played apparently was open at times trying to get open.
Um, but they need to figure something out, especially personnel receiving they knew really upgrade.
They really need to give Ellman's definitely playing a lot more limited than usual.
I don't know, you know, especially with him and age.
And so these air couple names receiver Rogers here in China.
I think the patriots to take a look at, um they obviously trade a second round pick.
Last year's trade deadline for Mohammed Sunu.
Obviously, that didn't term after they wanted.
Um, but they might they might try to go after on osario and and Bell and Bill about.
We used to really upgrade this team that they want Thio put be in a position where they're so they're so successful and still potentially find a way to win this division.
You're lucky that the Bills faced a really good team yesterday.
The Bills lost the Kansas City Chiefs.
Uh, Miami is playing really good ball right now.
There's breaking news.
Um, earlier today from Mountain Schefter, that to attack of a lower is going to come after the Dolphins have a by this week to talk about what was going to start the farm game, and they come back against the ranch.
I was a little surprised about, uh, to get this early prepared from Cameron Wolf, who eyes a reporter from the Dolphins, was saying that on NFL Live that they have part of their easier schedule coming up and also to remind people that to uh, ever since his hip injury is surgery, he has been a lot more than ever.
So they've had some time.
He's had some time off his hands, too, really get himself back to good shape.
And obviously, Fitzpatrick fits.
Magic has been incredible.
So I was a little surprised about that move.
But with that being said, the Dolphins were playing really good football, too.
So who knows what the case is? The Patriots could currently in third place.
The Bills are in first, and the Dolphins are in second.
Uh, today the Bengals are potentially going to move on from receiver John Ross speeches, uh, first round pick.
I believe the pink the Bengals used to use from TCU.
It just never worked out between those two sides about Ross and the Bangles.
And, uh, this was a guy, you know, the pictures seem to get some speed on this team, I think Tamir birds giving them a little bit, but in terms of just another body, another weapon, potentially John Ross could be an option.
Um And obviously I've seen this this crazy report about Matt Ryan, um, from the Falcons as well as Julio Jones.
Many executives think that especially with whether record stands that, um, they might be in selling mode, which I think there will be.
Who knows that they're going at the Falcons in the top 10 top five with the draft coming up, if they wanna go quarterback.
And I know this is a little off topic here, but, um, if if Cam doesn't resign, for whatever instance and I think you will under the franchise tag, but it doesn't happen that way, and it's this year's is only here with the team.
Well, you have to kind of think if Matt Ryan decides to go to San Francisco with great weapons.
I got some good weapons in in Atlanta, but their defense is what held them back.
They're gonna have a really good defense back next year.
They have a decent defense already right now with the 40 Niners, but again, Nick Bosa and Salman Thomas back and Richard Sherman's been been hurt, too.
So with that being said, I'm thinking myself well, Kyle Shanahan, Matt Ryan, Maybe there will be a good at good good fit between those two because they know each other well.
And then Jimmy G.
From the Niners will come back to New England because, Bill, a lot of Jimmy J.
You know, it's being so highly of him.
Especially when Brady was still around.
You know, he was talking so highly about about Jimmy G.
And speaking of Jimmy G, he is coming to Foxboro on Sunday as the Niners are coming in.
Uh, and I'll talk a little about that.
That team coming up, Uh, this'll is from, uh, Cody Benjamin, NFL staff writer, And these were some proposed, uh, you know, moves, he said.
Obviously, these are very unlikely to happen.
Well, Julio Jones has been a name that's been throwing around.
There is a trade rumor that maybe the Raiders could go after Julio Jones, the Falcons, but he had 2021 1st and the 2022 4th round pick for him, Uh, in terms of a J.
Green who could be on the move as well.
The Packers could be interested.
I know that the Packers really need to upgrade to receiver because they really need to find someone else besides Vonta Adams to do the to do the work.
This was all this scantly they have.
Alan was dark, but to get a guy potentially, that used to be extremely good.
Receiver Goto a dip, different changes Senior and A. J. Green.
I thought that I think the Patriots made maybe you need to take a look at a triggering to he.
There is, um, a lot of baggage with this move.
He's very hurt, and obviously he's not the same guy.
Used to be in terms of just a lot of the stuff he does, but I think that the pages really just need toe upgrade in that scheme.
Kind of take a look at the fact that they respect him across the middle of the field.
And then another move that was interesting to may really, really interesting.
Joe Tooni on Tuesday night.
Patriots When I talk before the season, Joe tuning was thrown around with some rumors about the Eagles, and the Eagles offensive line is extremely banged up.
Now, the thing about Joe Joe tuning in the Eagles talk is from that is Zach Ertz is available, and Zach Ertz, I don't know.
In terms of his fit in this contract situation, it was kind of upset in Philly.
He hasn't been used as much in this offense.
But I think that even with him being hurt and having the chance potentially have him come back, do the Patriots does swing trade for Joe tuning for Zach Ertz.
And I think that when I do it, yes, because I don't think I don't think they're gonna be able to pay to me the money that he wants for next next several years.
They obviously have to still worry about paying to find Gilmore to a long term extension.
That's really their main goal.
I would love Joe Tuna.
Stick around. I think he's a great teammate.
I think he does a great job for that offensive line.
I don't know if he's gonna be around.
So that's why I think they had that room around.
The other thing, too, is that kill Harry.
He's just not giving you enough production.
I think a lot of people this point or like is he gonna be a bus by now? Um, because really, there hasn't been that game yet I've been waiting, waiting, waiting to be like Okay.
Last year I gave him kind of more of a pass in terms of the fact that you know, he's coming into a tough system.
He was hurt for about half the year he came back.
He made a touchdown against Dallas.
There could have been game.
Okay, there's potential there.
And then this season, he was doing a lot of offseason work, you know they're talking about.
It's the ****ing stuff that he does in the off season.
First, his drills and everything like that is catching ability.
And so we're expecting how things from him.
There was a one game where can utilize him a lot, and I was like, Okay, maybe using Cam and Harry together might be a better thing together, you know? Touchdown against Kansas City, didn't mention made a nice play, but it's not like we've been seeing a 6 to 7 reception game a night we've been seeing.
Even we've been seeing guys like D.
Metcalf, Terry MacLaurin, a Justin Jefferson Chase, Claypool.
All these guys way behind Harry on the draft class where there is their class or this past draft class.
But there's plenty plenty of wide receivers out there when you know that the fact that you need receiving help you neither seeming help and then the pages decide to go for tight ends in the in the in the draft, which obviously I understood because they need to upgrade a tight end.
But the pages really need to go after a veteran tight end.
They need to have that in their system.
They had amount of costs, but he he was opted out.
They use them all That Ryan is a has been used a little bit, but they can do and fed off of Greg Olsen.
And here I think it was around, Um, so, uh, with that being said, I hear some trade targets that I could see the pages going at receiver and tight end A J Green golden tape.
Marvin Jones, Kenny Stills, Will Fuller and John Ross, receiver wide receiver in the tight end.
David and joke Zach Ertz, Evan Ingram and Hunter Henry.
Ah, tight end might be a little bit harder in terms of reality that that probably look at more of like a Jones or can.
Still, I think that's very realistic.
With this change, Let's go to San Fran.
Patriots take on the 40 Niners on Sunday for 25 actually, Stadium they're trying to recruit.
Neither tied a big win.
They were one in three at home, but they've won three other games that they would have been on the road.
Ah, couple things about about the Niners is they always have Shanahan.
I've see Shanahan has been a good college, but obviously is known for giving up the leads like the 20 to 3 lead.
That's just great, Um, but he does a great job in terms of how he works his best players around.
He moves them around.
They use their running game to their advantage.
Trent Williams, who they got the trade's been fantastic there.
Um, they use a lot of their weapons to their ability.
They so they have one of the best tight ends in the league.
And George Kittle, uh, Bill Belgique spoke highly of him during his weekly, uh, pressure on and deserve.
So he is a great he's a nightmare.
He's up there in terms of the Travis Kelsey's in the during Waller's of the world.
He's extremely talented.
Uh, they do a lot of play action because they obviously wants to get their running game going early.
So the Patriots defense, defensive line and linebackers have to be really on their A games on Sunday.
Um, Samuel Brittan, yuk um, the best players offensively are Kittel Samuel I.
They had moster running back starter, but he's hurt.
I do expect them to use a lot of German can.
Imo and German can.
I've been watching all that.
He's a fast, young, quick guy that Minnesota used a lot.
Eso This is Jimmy G is you know, he had a great game last game in a really tough game.
The game of four gets the Dolphins.
So he I was supposed to Jimmy g toe have a great game.
The Patriots would have to be on their a game.
They can't have another letdown like what they did.
I mean, if they lose, they obviously lost.
They lost a really good team.
Like, you know, Denver.
Is there really not a great team at the end of the day? I think they're a great team, but they won't but I would be nice to get the pages back on track on their winning ways because they got really tough schedule the rest of the way.
They need to find ways to get someone's here.
The Patriots gonna catch a break.
No Solomon Thomas or Nick Bosa, but they have a lot of, Ah, lot of great players to look out for.
We're almost to the 15 minute mark here on Tuesday night pages.
Episode 27 with your husband Cruise It is October 20th at 7:20 p.m.
We're almost out of time, actually, because I started right around 6. 30.
So and I was going to do a video, but probably, uh, not today.
I might be back on here on Sunday.
Actually, I'm do like a quick post game of a port with you guys.
Tuesday night, Tuesday night, Patriots.
I will, uh, you know the postgame.
I might come on here on Sunday, right after the game.
It'll be a quick thing.
Just a quick video highlights of the game.
Just a quick talk, but more of an exclamation.
More of an explanation in terms of everything that went well, didn't go Well, just all the other latest breaking news.
What's going on with the team? So be on the lookout.
Obviously, that that's gonna be up in question, but there might be a little postgame report on I might do on Sunday here on sports.
Castro for the Patriots.
Let's go to headlines.
Thank you all for joining me on the Patriots.
Recap from the Broncos Uh, some guys of the Patriots to take a look at are the latest with the covert situation with the Patriots.
Kind of how they've been handling it.
Um, And then, uh, let's go toe headlines your garage.
All right, I'm going Thio Mike.
Let's see if my Greece has anything else now cleaning out the Patriots notebook.
I like to say something about that, though, and in terms of the Patriots situation, that tight end guys, they're using it there, one of the lowest in terms of utilizing their tight ends.
That's where they have to get things going because that opens up so much other stuff and their in their in their offense, their defense.
I think I'm not too worried about.
I'm not too worried about their defense.
I think that difference has been playing decently the last several games.
Um, Mike Reiss said.
This and this and this notebook after a game like that.
When the pages was the first time in Bill Belichick's tenure despite not given up a touchdown now 39 1 record, there is an obvious question asked what is wrong with the offense? My three said, My answer is that there isn't one answer.
It's just it isn't just on Cam Newton or just lack of separation and receivers, or just because the offensive lowers General.
There were actually positive things and all the at four we mentioned there is, in my view, it wasn't just consistent enough.
So getting a full week of practice, not necessarily any personal changes, is the first in the pages.
Need the Broncos basically try to give them the game? That's true.
Pages frustratingly frustratingly, uh, couldn't take it, in part because of fence fundament.
Fundamental wow, fundamental breakdowns.
Isaiah, When switch seemed most affected by all the switching along the offensive line, there's this is one of the worst games I've ever seen him play.
Bottom line is one on one matchup against outside linebacker Willie Greed.
The game on the line you could expect went to win that almost every time.
Uh, let's see. Yeah.
Irene made the Broncos and undrafted free agent out in Nevada in 2019 while when was a 2018 1st round pick, but the 2nd and 10 from the Broncos? 24th, one minute, 14 remaining to read, shed winds, block and sack Newton.
At first, I thought new held onto the ball too long, but the sack came about three seconds, which to me puts it more on when the players reflected oven overall.
Tough day for when who started left guard and then kicked outside to his regular tackle spot. Half.
Conversely, this might have been the worst.
The best game that cornerback Jonathan Jones is playing.
The five years the Patriots, the Broncos president down the field and his coverage in technique.
Playing the ball is mostly textbook.
Um, so those were just some things that I wanted to mention, so that being said, pages gotta rebound and I'll get Thio do report, potentially posting report, which I might start doing on Sundays or whenever the Patriots play and kind of just have a quick video of the highlights on, then.
Just kind of quick glimpse of what I think, Maura, about that Terms of Mormon ****yst ****yzing point of view.
Uh, when I do this on a page or something on Tuesdays, so let's go ahead lines like I mentioned earlier, according to people on the lead, the Falcons could shop Julio Jones and that right before the trade deadline per Jeremy five. ESPN.
The world Siri's is on tonight, Game one between the Tampa Bay Rays in the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Game one is tonight.
I'm honest and test results in the NFL.
The NFL's eight new positives among 2459 players.
They're just last week.
As for spirit, Iccho first reported MLB's ownership committee has approved Steve Cohen to the Mets to be the Mets owner.
Have heard the voice, uh, have heard the vote by apology was seven and one favor next to the eight owner executive committee, then the full ownership group, where he needs 23 votes.
This was a huge hurdle, and Cohen cleared it.
Uh, okay, Doc Emmerich, Yesterday he he retired.
This was obviously somebody that I looked up Thio some of the big reason why I love hockey.
Um, so Oh, Tom Brady just put something out about the raise.
He wants the wrist one, because obviously is now down.
Tampa So he is trying to be the Tom Berry effects.
Um, you weren't serious, so obviously Tom is gonna be watching me.
World serves like a lot of us are, uh, Jessica Mendoza will become the first female ****ysts in World Series history tonight.
