Then we are going on. Chris e.
Just a little bit of weight.
Yeah, it's all right.
Um, so, yeah, we're live.
Good evening, folks.
Feel free to put anything in the chat hollow artist, because we it is to any time I'm a c underscore more stick on Twitter Trevor's that try to prevail into And that was a good week in the sports.
So we're gonna get down on Are you ready, Trevor? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.
You mean, if you want to say I grabbed the bat before you get into it? Um, hey, I'll just I'll just say packers look good.
Uh, you know, we'll see what happens is next week.
Auto, del, though tough injury.
Um, Well, see, I believe Game six of the World Series is tonight, so, um, you know, good luck to both teams.
Hopefully we get a raise one just for game seven for me, but yeah.
Yeah, so I mean, speaking worlds theory.
That's our first topic right now.
Game sixes tonight? Yeah, that is 32 obviously, since you last.
But we had the epic Game four.
That was ridiculous so that anything that was very from the watch, like even a big fan of baseball, like you have to love that.
Anything that was so like crazy how that ended.
What do you thought from, like the past few games now, like putting in wins tonight, he teams up with the Dodgers, like lean towards the raids.
Parts of Game seven.
I'm really feeling I said from the jump, Probably Dodgers in six or seven.
Um, although you said Dodgers in five or six.
So it's not that big a difference? Um, I didn't think it would be this close to this part, though.
Um, both teams could have won game five, I would say.
I think they have one last pushing them.
I mean, Game four will definitely talk about that.
But Snell, on the mound for Tampa Bay, it looks like in gone Solin for L.
75 you're a I'll take Snell on the race.
Yeah, so I mean, like, yeah, I'm original.
Prediction was Dodgers and four or five.
I thought they were just two d two.
Overmatched, But like once Syria started kicking off change with predictive Dodgers and six.
So, yeah, so to keep our prediction going after Game two, I said of Dodgers and six, Um, I mean, I like to say Dodgers and wins tonight and finish the deal, but yeah, I mean, like as a sports fan, How could he be against, Ah, Game seven? I mean, like, that would be really epic.
I mean, that would be a perfect ending to this.
Siri's at the same time, like it wants a Game seven.
Roberts needs to go like this.
Should not be 1/17 serious.
Dodges so much deeper is so much more talented than the Raid.
It really shouldn't be this'll cultural seriously to begin with and then gained forward debacle.
I mean, it was fun to watch, but that should not have happened.
Those un except more like, straight off like very question like Roberts like question calls and how he managed a team that game.
Kind of pulling players early, kind of questionable.
So I mean the same time.
So I think when I lose, you might be losers job regardless.
But even if they win tonight, I say, still, might I mean, he's been question of the past few seasons now, so let's see what happened to me.
I picked charges tonight, but I gotta talk with with you earlier, but I want to bring it up in the air now.
Uh, I mean, if you went to a Game seven, I say, like, throw curse on them for a little bit.
I mean, like, he doesn't play the whole game, like, usually gets pulled out to six innings.
You think maybe too tired or whatnot? But I said this Game seven, you have four days off.
I mean, at the same time, didn't it Would be too much for him to play in a Game seven potentially.
I mean, if you want a Game seven that really raised a lot of his demons from the past, the playoffs and being a big moments because you can't get a stage bringing the Game seven the world Siri's.
So what are your thoughts on that? Yeah, honestly, I don't know who pitch.
Okay, So Kershaw started.
Ah, Game five Sunday.
Um, Gonsouland Starting today.
Saturday? Um, it was your ius pitch foreign two thirds.
Um, I was actually thinking unfortunately, I was thinking curious.
Um, I think maybe actually, give it toe.
Baylor. Walker, Baylor. Hey.
Hasn't pitched in a long time.
Must not have I would give it to him.
I do like Kershaw pitching.
Actually, I just don't think as a starter, I think you go like, yeah, you know, honestly, if Baylor's got his stuff, he'd go Baylor for six or seven Kershaw for two or three, if you can.
Maybe you RIAS for the for the end.
But But it's tough because, you know, Kenley Jansen hasn't been great on that play to the plate and came for I don't know what the hell he was doing.
He needs to be backing up the plate.
That's like, literally, you know, um, you might not have got him out for, like, you got to try, right? Um, so, yeah, I mean, I don't know what's up with him.
I think Kershaw could play, but, um yes, starting definitely out of the question.
But he can give you 23 innings for sure, and I'm sure he'll want to for sure too.
I mean, like, even just pitch for, like, two innings or so.
They'll be like, just great from you pitched well in those two innings Like that would be like a lot of like demons of him not performing the playoffs.
We will do wonders.
Yeah, I don't think you should start.
Yeah, he'll be too tired to start the whole game or something like that.
But I like the idea of starting Baylor because I think he is, like, more fresh and like, I'll be good with Route the Goat for that game seven.
But yeah, I'll be a good game tonight.
So about half about an hour from now, actually, I mean, hopefully and I picked the doctors in six so that he can pull it out at the same time.
This series has been very questionable management.
I don't trust Roberts another day.
In my opinion, I think he's very like I think it's screw it up somehow.
But I can definitely see that just like the game for like I see some wild, weird management.
Why it's happening to me, man is really a factor in this game.
Sure, unless the Dodgers score a lot early, because I don't think the race have enough to, like come back from down like they can fight with you any day. Any.
Um, the margin of error is slim in the world.
Siri's Between this, these teams, it's not all that slim.
Actually, I feel like the Dodgers had decent control, even though they're really only up 32 Um, but like those managing change just takes the wind out of your sails.
Um, yeah, I just don't trust him.
And we talked about it earlier to last episode of Even if they win, they might not keep Dave Roberts.
Um, and it's not looking like it.
Like I give all the credit to the Rays.
Also shout out to Brett Phillips, former brewer.
Demand Choi love you guys great guys, but like, I mean, come on, this team this this probably shouldn't have gone six If it goes seven.
That's completely ridiculous.
Um, talent wise on paper, that shouldn't have gone ****her than five.
Yeah, that's my original prediction.
I said, Daughter is in fact, there was so much more talented.
I mean, Kershaw bets alone, like there were more than the whole raised team like That's ridiculous.
Even think about, I mean, honestly, like promise the bets to best played a really good world, serious.
I mean, he's thinking like a lot of key place, like stealing bases left and right, winning tacos for all of America and Taco Bell.
But I mean, like, you played really well.
Like they're still like a close Siri's.
It's kind of just shows you like wow, like, yeah, I mean, prompted him paper hanging in there.
But yeah, I really should have got close.
So it's kind of like, Is Tampa Bay really playing well? Or doctors not playing well? So it's kind of it's a good question to ask.
Shout out to Brandon Lau to He sits, um, big hits, big homers.
I didn't expect him like I'm pretty sure I would be expected to.
Rosen Marinatto. Just mash.
He has a record for most hits and most home runs.
He's cruise but Brandon laws and picking up the slack tomb.
We talked about that, too, you know.
It's got to be a Rose Arena.
Who else, uh, the else's air picking up the slack so we'll see.
Good game will be.
Yeah, So switching gears a little bit Last night my Chicago Bears, they lost 24 10 I mean, I'm a bears guy, as you guys know.
The hat You had to bring out the hat, man.
So the bears fall last night to the L A. Rams.
Um, what do your thoughts on that A lot of your time with this morning.
Like where the bears exposed what your thoughts were on the Chicago Bears last night.
The Bears air so confusing to me because this offense is not good.
And I don't really understand why, because at times it will look like Nick Foles is the problem.
At times, it looks like the running game is the problem.
And then, at times like the play calling will be super bad.
And it's like, What? What's the problem? Because if you could take care of the problem, that's fine. Like feeling isolated.
Just one problem.
Um, I think the most concerning thing, though, is they said in the broadcast.
Um, Nick Foles said something toe one of the commentators before the game along lines of you know, Matt Nagy makes the calls, and he doesn't know that I don't have the time to get the playoff or something like that.
That's extremely concerning to me.
Um, because I love Nick Foles and I think he's a smart guy.
He's won the Super Bowl, Um, but if your coaches and calling the right plays unless you have a guy like Tom Brady or and Aaron Rodgers or Patrick Mahomes, Uh, I really don't trust to be a quarterback, to be ableto like go off script like that, especially in a guy in his first year with the team.
Eso come playoff time. It's gonna be bad.
But this defense is legit.
Like I knew his defense is legit.
But like, ****, the Jared Goff is actually pretty solid.
But they made him look human like they're run defense is saying they have some great players.
They make teams make mistakes.
Um, I'm just worried, you know, come playoff time and everybody has a decent offense and or a decent defense, Will they be able to force enough mistake's for their offense to be able to catch up? I don't know.
Yeah, so for me is a bear stand.
Also, the offense has definitely been questionable.
I mean, if he's been legit for years, like you have really to believe their defense like people believe they even to carry them to win, but having a really good demons, really valuable in the NFL, just They kind of stop teams and have offices good enough to kind of put you over the hump.
I mean, that's all you really need at the end of the day, because it's really hard about sports in the NFL.
But if you could have a really good defense, like stop teams, you maybe have a chance win games.
So I like Chicago for that sense.
But overall, I said that the offensive line of the Bears that was very questionable.
I mean, I like Aaron Donald, but like he was destroying the offensive line last night.
He had 10 pressures.
Nick polls looked very under distress, having trouble getting the ball like you mentioned.
So you after the offensive line, that's a big question mark last night.
I mean, I get Aaron Donald, he's the BBC's the best in the game.
I really one of the best of all time, but the same time like you can't be getting like pressure like that.
You need some kind of hold up like 10 pressure.
That's way too much from for any quarterback to deal with.
So that's a big red flag there.
But yeah, I mean, the offices, like, definitely concerning.
I mean, like they have a stud receiver on Robinson.
Is the real deal.
One of the top of the game? Because Nicole's he's just more of like I would say, he's like, above average.
I mean, he's good for, like, a game here and there, like he'll make good plays in big moments.
You always a lot of Eli Manning like That's He's kind of like Eli Manning kind of quarterback.
So not like elite like help like elite like status, but the same time like he can win you some games to show up in the big moment.
I mean, hopefully don't playoff times.
You kind of do that kinda like Eli Manning did.
So I'm not too worried about the often, you know, figure it out.
They just be, like, good enough to get by.
But he had to do. This is definitely legit.
But you mentioned Jared golf.
I mean, honestly, I never been a fan of him ever like, Even when they admit to Bull one, I think he's, I think, overpaid like I was never a fan off their golf at all.
I mean, he's just I think he is way overrated.
Like he just a serviceable quarterback.
He shouldn't be one of the highest paid at all that.
He's very replaceable.
In my opinion, I wasn't a fan of him in college.
You just always been like, Yeah, okay.
Like, but yeah, I mean, like like l a rams.
I mean, I think I think there was a jail.
I like them a lot of their deepest, Obviously have a lot of talent.
The offenses serviceable.
I mean, you ever got got elite, but he's OK.
And like they have Super Cups. A good receiver.
Woods is a good receiver.
So the same time, like, yeah, um, I like the l A Rams, but the pivot gears a little bit.
NFC West looks stacked right now.
I mean, you have to Seahawks when lost.
You have the rand's of two losses in the last place team that matters airport, uh, one get above 500.
They got those cardinals in third place right now.
So yeah, Who needs when the NFC West like What do you mean? The race comes down to there? Yeah, real quick.
Shout out Paced me, Austin.
Hope I'm hope I'm not sitting that right.
Shout out for the tip.
We appreciate you.
Um, but NFC West boy, uh, we'll definitely talk about the Arizona Seattle game is well, because, uh, but like like you said, we'll get to that man.
Seattle's relentless in, like trades, you know, before the trade deadline.
Which makes me think Seattle is going to find a way that trade for a playmaker on defense, which they really need.
Um, and so does Arizona.
But overall, it just I I'd probably lean Seattle a little bit just because again, we'll get into the game later.
But Cliff Kingsbury, he's a good coach.
Stephens Corner was fantastic.
Um, against Seattle.
As good as you can be.
But I gotta take Pete Carroll, a guy who has experienced over Cliff Kingsbury in front against the guy.
But, you know, they've been there, done that.
Hey, wants another ring? I mean, like, personally, I'm not a Kingsbury.
I'm not a Kingsbury fan.
Personally, County, You should have got the job.
He had a losing season in college, so I had to go from the balloon season college to getting promoted toe NFL head coaching jail with no NFL experience at all.
Yeah, I'm not a fan about it all here.
I'll be a e mean like, don't get me wrong.
I don't care right now.
You should get a job in the first place.
That's just so like Like you don't you never feel like a African American coach.
You like opportunity.
They see that? Yeah, that that that is an interesting thing you brought up, you know, because you know, when he first got the job, I was, like, really? Like.
And this is in the big 12.
So outside of, like, Oklahoma much lately, Baylor was okay.
It was decent near the end.
I mean, the question is like a few percent to go, things like they played zero defense.
So how are they gonna find the NFL like that's the big question out there.
There's going on the points, but yeah, I almost wonder if they picked him toe work with Murray pretty much, you know, because they had the early pick Texas Tech.
They 12 coaches love the offense.
Love those mobile quarterbacks.
I almost wonder if they thought were going to take somebody from the Big 12 or somebody that likes that style, Uh, and just thought he was the best guy for the job.
Yeah, but like to go off the point? Yeah, so you can see other won the NFC West, probably by a hair.
I just can't trust this Rams offense.
Like you said, You know, golf is either amazing in prime time or is horrible.
Um, that's why I was I was someone impressed with the Bears.
I'm not a golf fan, either, but like he was not in the awful stage and they still made him look, so it's kind of go back up that point.
So, like turning the Rams office kind of questionable.
So comparing the Rams and embarrass would he take us like, most almost trusting team? They wouldn't take it like the bear like the Baron offense or like the Rams office.
Mm, that's tough.
I'd probably take the Rams, not by much again by a hair, I think, golf and falls.
I think you hit it right on the head with Nick Foles.
With the Eli Manning comparison, I don't think he's as good.
But he's that type of quarterback where he's like, Yeah, yeah, and those guys can win.
Like Manning has Super Bowls.
Um, probably a Hall of Fame.
Yeah, I would take the Rams by a hair just because I think they have better talent around him.
I think the Bears have a better running back Montgomery, but I think the Rams have a better committee.
Like I think, all together, they're better.
Um, just because they can movement and out receivers.
I think the Rams are better and tight ends, I think, are better.
But Jimmy Graham is starting to actually ball.
So, like, you got to get respect him.
You got to start talking about him offensive line.
They got to badgers.
And I know you're not a badger fan, but Boykin, those *******s make some offensive line them.
So yeah, like the big boys out of this concept, I have to give them that big boys.
So I take them by a little bit, But like on their best night, the bears, we still have You have to see it.
There's gonna be a game where the bears offense shows up.
I'm actually gonna be really interested.
Even though I don't like the Bears, it's gonna be fun to watch because that team is gonna be rolling.
I mean, you kind of mentioned it so, like, that's better running back and a better receiver.
I mean, Robin is better than any of the Rams receivers, and Montgomery is a pretty good running back to, so if they're playing the best they can.
So maybe it could be end of being a bit of the Rams like you never know, but But that's a that's a lot of is to kind of get them all clicking in their highest levels.
They kind of just my chance that you mentioned.
But yeah, as far as NFC West.
Yeah, I'll probably pick Seattle.
But, like, what? Do you pick any other team's NFC West to go to the playoffs? Oh, yeah, Oh, yeah, I think it's gonna be I wish, working to make the players that they deserve it because all four of these and they have the NFC East, which is just atrocious, like just such a shame the 40 Niners will wait a little bit on like if they deserve it, because they're four and three and then they're good.
But with injuries on, Jeff Wilson is out now.
So, like down to two running backs, Deebo, Samuel will be out for a little while.
Um, so I think we'll wait to see.
But those three teams are very good, And on any given night could be anybody.
Um, and I I just wanna is too, because I don't think he gets enough love this coming from a Packer fan.
Uh, Alan Robinson is easily a top 10 wide receiver in the NFL and number number seven.
Probably you could argue it a little bit, but I feel like people don't give enough love just because he's not in a good system, But anybody who puts up these kind of numbers like I respect the hell out of him.
He should have gone to you.
Watch him play like he's crazy fast.
He was Rosalie Wells.
That's a lot of balls.
Hey, should have picked Green Bay is a free agent, but I still respect the talent, so yeah, for sure.
But like so, who do you pick to make the playoffs, like along with Seattle? Them? Like, who's your pick? Um, if I had to pick one team from the West, probably Arizona and then the Rams.
Just cause Arizona's offense is so good.
UH, it's ridiculous and their defense spectacular.
**** good in overtime when they were gassed, that demons coordinator made some really great calls, Um, on Russell Wilson, so I'd go him.
But man, that Rams defense Edin Leonard Floyd.
If he could get some one on ones because Donald's blown up the middle cheese, that's that's scary.
Yeah, so for me, I'll probably pick the Rams, because I mean, like, I think they look more like trusting team, actually to both experience a lot of players still on the team.
So the more experience, so I trust them more.
I mean, last year they're kind of underachieved, so they're probably motivated to come back and go on the street here. And then the Cardinals.
At least I think they're like one year away, like missing that kind of experience, me comradely second year player, and then they have some bad losses.
They lost the Lions in Carolina like those were ugly losses that they should not have lost those games at all.
So, yes, I'll say I'll go ahead Go ahead, Chris.
No, I'm just saying that just lovely losses like, you can't be losing games like that and then expect to go to the playoffs.
So, I mean, I will say in their defense, uh, the lions are actually three and three now, so shout out the lions.
Um, I mean, they're serviceable, which is better than we thought they were at the time.
Um, but yeah, I'm looking at the schedule now.
It doesn't get easier.
So, jeez, you know for sure.
So, yeah, I'll probably pick the Rand's.
But like, the days of possibility, three things could make it out of the West for sure.
Um, it's going to be really interesting here, though, because obviously one teams coming out of the east, that's pretty much a given.
Um, and I would like to say I hope they stay with 17 because of scenarios like this.
Uh, because there should arguably 18 to from the Actually not that you mentioned.
I'm pretty sure seven have decided before Kobe in the hit like that was already like sentenced.
So they're adding that your, um there are adding 1/17 game for all teams starting next season.
There's already given okay, because, like I'm looking at the Packers and the Bears, at least right now, both teams should be in.
That's not really debatable. Packers.
I'm playing anybody great, but it's a five and one record, So it's good enough at this point.
Um, Tampa Bay five and to New Orleans.
Yeah, two out of the South.
Yeah, I don't know.
Hi, It's just so that's the case.
Then, when we got two out of the Western, I really hope these teams in the West beat each other up enough that earn, don't beat up each other enough so that three teams do get in because I think all those three teams are better than New Orleans.
You could even argue.
Maybe even all four teams.
Uh, yeah, but for you, Cathy Niners defense is definitely like lead, and I say it seems like they're okay this year, but they're not like I populate in years past.
It's insane that the difference right now between like the Packers and the Rams, where the last playoff team is a half game like them in the ST is like one game that is insane We're only six weeks in the like.
The Bears went from first to fifth from one game and those Eagles air just holding on for dear god**** life.
And for yeah, with the Eagles couldn't make, like the issue of be abolished, that they should not make the playoffs.
I mean, the playoffs started today.
Eagles be hosting, embarrassed at Philadelphia.
That's so messed up on so many levels.
Like obviously again, I will say it again.
I don't like the Bears.
That's so messed up.
That's not right.
That's not right.
I mean, they'll get the win.
So I mean, I'll be okay.
Like Like it should be a home game.
They shouldn't be at Philadelphia.
Yeah, so kind of stand NFC once you kind of mentioned it.
Yeah, obviously, is a big game between Seattle and the Cardinals.
Wilson Wilson had three interceptions.
That was kind of alarming.
What I took up to you from that game, uh, let's look up to me was, first of all, the stupid mistake's from Seattle trying to leap over the line making contact that turned a field goal into a touchdown and this game into overtime.
That was really bad, But what stood out to me? Calamari looked like the MVP over Russell Wilson.
Um, one game you might really pick.
I'm up two weeks us that he was M v P.
Yeah, he's my dark horse.
So he looked very, very, very good.
Um, the one thing that really stood out to me, that was by God, the defense coordinator for Arizona.
It definitely took him a while to figure it out.
But like some of the things he was throwing out, Russell Wilson were so genius.
Um, you know, if you didn't watch the game Heywood line like seven guys on offense on the on the defensive line, you know, linebacker and D lineman and then he'd randomly have four Russian three go back and he changed to It was every time.
And when you have a quarterback like Russell Wilson, that's what you have to do.
It led to the pick that got him in field field position to kick the field goal.
I mean, this defense has some really good players, and if he can keep making play calls like that, his defense will get better in this team will be very, very dangerous.
I don't want to play them.
Um, I'd even rather play Seattle over them because this team is just gonna be such a pain to play if they get that defense figured out.
I mean, like, So after watching that game, what do you say it hurt Russell Wilson at BP chances? Because after one game a little bit, Um, I mean, the interceptions were not great, but, I mean, he's still threw for 388 yards.
Some of the passes he was she was dropping in.
There were just just disgusting.
I mean, he's really got it down, the throwing it high in the air.
So it just drops in the basket 84 yards on the ground to on six carries.
I mean, I don't see enough to unseat him.
Um, I think he goes down a little bit, but like maybe a blip because of the throws he was making, It's not a usual three interception game.
Yeah, so I'll agree.
Like I always say, that really hurt him that much because I got three pictures at night the same time every day, or that's still really impressive.
I mean, he was overtime loss to it wasn't like he got blown out or anything.
It wasn't like a Aaron Rodgers before.
It wasn't like he got destroyed.
So at the same time, I would say he's probably still the front runner.
Like I liked him a lot.
Yeah, the Russian was really good, too.
But yeah, but I'll tell you, my biggest take away of the game is yeah, so I said Commerce M V P of the week to like I like it was a dark horse.
I mean, I would say Is Pyatt launched Got those losses against Carolina.
And Linas really hurts him like he did not look the best in those.
Like, I guess the Cowboys doing a nine complete.
She is nine for 21.
That was not a good look at all for him.
So n B people have launched shop with Colin Murray, but I think he could still pressure the playoffs like I don't like gonna do that.
Big three particular pendant game was the D.
K. Metcalf. Che style.
Yeah, I know. He was that fast.
Like he took off, but he beat the whole both teams down the field to make that tackle like, Oh, my lord.
Like I know I did use that fast.
I mean, like, I knew he was fast, but not like he looked like, almost like Tyree kill fast.
I was like, What the heck? Because I did not know he had that in himself.
You're right to like it wasn't just like he was cooking strives for, like, five years apiece.
**** near was like, Holy ****.
Yeah, you know, zero like that.
That was That was really big to people.
Don't think about it.
This game would not have gone into overtime.
Like with all the bull**** that happened at the end of the game.
Uh, he stopped a short touchdown and Cliff Kingsbury went for and they didn't get anything, so he saved seven points.
Um, you also even if he doesn't make that play.
I love the effort.
Like even if he doesn't catch up with the Seahawks fan, I'm pumped because like, he wasn't even part of the play.
It wasn't even his job.
He is so far away.
You love to see.
It's like when an NBA player like when he gets dumped on, like, obviously if it's like 6 ft one guard.
You don't want to try to block it, but, like, I'd rather have a guy get dunked on than just get out of the way.
Like I love to see it.
I mean, yeah, I totally agree that especially because deep it came out.
Have you done the best game either? He only had to recess for 23 yards, So I still you still engaged? They want to make that play and help his team win, I guess.
Really positive sea from any kind of teammate.
Like, you know, they're not having the best game.
That's really positive side to see the one thing I would like to bring up those Cliff Kingsbury.
You know, we talked a little bit about I'll give the edge to Peak. Carol.
Um, it was really only like, one little blip, but I was still very concerned when he kicked.
Decided to kick the field goal early in overtime.
Um, again, if you didn't watch the game, Seattle got the ball first.
They punted, Which means all Arizona had to do a score.
Uh, they were cooking on offense.
They got us down to Seattle 18 Seattle 24 they weren't, you know.
They weren't losing yards.
They were getting like, six yards a carry. They were cooking.
And then he decides to kick a field goal on second down with like, three minutes left.
It's like, you know, I know you don't want to turn it over, but, like at least try running it and worry about like, you know, just protected for your life or if you have nothing, throw it away.
You always want to take the chances because he saw it.
He the field goal was missed.
There's a 41 yard er and, you know, luckily, they got the pick and got a field goal at the end of the day, but I don't know about the play calling.
It was a little suspect.
I don't know what you think about it, though.
I think it was suspect.
So I mean the same time, like I mean, they still pulled it out, So I mean, it worked out from the end of the day, so well, comments.
Hey, said the Lake LeBron's championship, because they should have a strict with it.
He said it was the easiest way to change shift ever due to like the Miami injuries.
The half the Lakers had, he said.
It's definitely the asking in the in the pause in the season.
What would you be? Reaction? Do you think the Lakers LeBron's titled The Syria deserve a master work on it? I know exactly what you're going to think about this, Andi.
Maybe a little less emphatically than you, but like no, Um, at first I felt like maybe like even when the bucks were in it, I thought maybe there should be.
But then I just saw how grueling it was.
Like even when my even though the bucks were still in I was like, This sucks.
So I can't even imagine what the players were going through.
Um, I've talked about how I don't think their competition was the best, but meant whether it was or not, it doesn't matter.
Mentally, that is a grind.
You have to come back.
Yeah, he had the best team arguably around him, but like either way, it's a grind.
And guess what injuries happened.
Like nobody was, you know, saying Oh, asterisk, You know when you know Oh, I got hurt in the warriors.
You know, people were saying No.
What? They have one, you know.
But they weren't saying Oh, asterisk.
You know, I think it's just another classic example of LeBron hate.
I'm not a super LeBron fan, but like come on, if he if he would have won the championship, if they were all healthy and LeBron was hurt, he would have had a **** problems.
So I think it's pretty bogus. That's pretty self.
Just if you want to get LeBron or a player like Yannis after saying that ****, Good luck.
Yeah, it really is a hater, in my opinion.
He's just a sure loser like you wanted to be. LeBron. He lost.
So I'm just suck it up.
LeBron beat you, But yeah, I'll say no aspect at all.
I mean, I think is one hardly the hardest championship.
I think ever I mean, just kind of causing this season.
When the Lakers were rolling back in March like they had a really good chemistry going, and also don't just stop coming back to back when they get the Bucks and the Clippers, they were really on a roll right into the playoffs and then also just stop abruptly for four months like that's really hard to stay focused, stay in shape in that time.
So they were able to do that.
And also when the restart, every Bradley wasn't there all the huge piece with them perimeter defense and hitting shots.
I mean, people said, like Danny Green killed in the finals and not hitting that shot.
Maybe Bradley maybe would hit that shot. You never know.
I mean, maybe, like, these would have been different.
So the same time, Like Like I said, that Africa at all they have the whole social justice movement to like.
That was really tough for players to kind of battle through, like a lot of ourselves.
Should we even be here like they wanted to protest? That was a lot on their plate, too.
So that's definitely a big factor that know that you can't ever had to deal with.
I mean, like, they suspended gains for a few days even because of the protests, social unrest.
So that's a definitely a big girl to overcome too.
So I would say Yeah, no ass.
Then, being separate from the families for so long, Like just being in that bubble just not don't know.
It's like contact like That's really hard mentally for any kind of player, too.
So you had to keep them in the council between Social justice, abruptly stopping and being in a bubble.
Yeah, I think it's one arguing the hardest championship you could ever imagine.
Well, people forget to.
They were one of the few teams that voted to cancel this season.
Yeah, the Lakers and Clippers.
Yeah, so they definitely had conversations in the locker rooms like shouldn't even play.
And there was definitely at least a point where in this player's mind, they knew that there was a chance that this season was over.
And so, coming back from that, getting back within five games, I think, uh, since I so was it was the next five or six e mean either way, like it? Yeah, they didn't play the hardest teams, but it's not like these teams took the seven, you know, they got through pretty easily, so yeah, I don't understand. Agree.
Um, it's just you know, I agree.
You know, you saw all these players saying beforehand it doesn't have an asterisk when they were all still in it.
Like you, honest said it all these guys that, um, I trust the players over a crotch dealed man.
But it's just sitting in the stands, shaking his fist that LeBron for leaving.
Yeah, I definitely agree with that 100%.
Yeah, I don't think it's gastric.
It all, like, I think, like, Yeah, I was definitely earned, like, really hard fought victory.
I mean, obviously, the finals opponent probably wasn't.
LeBron's heart is his career, but it's one of the few times just favorite to win the finals, too.
I mean, it's only a favorite to win the finals three times in his career.
Person actually want him being favored other two times to go to Dallas Mavericks and losing and get to spur 2014.
It was in that Siri's, too, so at least he got it done.
I mean, you can't really hate because appreciate the greatest.
Always still have it.
I mean, at the same time, like he's not gonna play forever, man.
Appreciate it like we're not gonna see another player like LeBron fight for a long, long time.
Like if you ever even do so.
Appreciate what? We have it.
Yeah, that's the story of everything to like.
Everybody hates on everybody and that, like Kobe, it happened.
Thio Jordan like oh, like LeBron LeBron Jordan, like gambling scandal.
And then they leave.
And suddenly it's like, Oh my God, I miss Kobe so much like, Where was this? Like, you know, like, Come on, I know I have the have the energy all the time to enjoy when he was playing.
Oh, he doesn't pass the ball.
He's a ball hog and hold gambling scandals old like he's just a gambling addict.
All he does is just drink and gambles, book cigars.
And then it's a But then, seeing Jordan retired, he's like, Oh, he was a great It's so time He was amazing.
Yada, yada, yada, Yeah, being there, Kobe, the whole like a fair and like cheating ***ual *** assault allegation scandal.
You have that whole thing.
You actually traded the whole Shaq and Kobe thing.
People said he was a ball hog, but then she was.
Kobe retired in that last.
If you were all over him, all he's like, amazing and stuff.
So the LeBron thing treatment he retires, so you never know.
Usually assumes we're done.
You appreciate it more.
It's just whatever is fashionable.
So everybody's gonna be like, Oh, my God, LeBron toe.
Like, you gotta appreciate a waltz.
They're like, I didn't like I don't like I didn't like LeBron when he went after he won the ring when he went to Miami.
I don't I like him.
But I could still watch and be like, ****, this dude is a dog like this, Dude ****ing balls.
You don't have to like him to appreciate him.
I don't I don't care what it so hard for people.
Um, one way or the other, Uh, you know, Chris, maybe maybe you with your honest a little bit.
Um I mean, like, um with the Yeah, I just think he just couldn't get the criticism that, like like a LeBron or Katie again.
That's what my critics is against him.
But yeah, your point.
I totally agree that I like that a lot too.
Because Tom Brady, for example, I'm not a big fan of him.
I mean, like, he's been in, like, cheating scandal, the whole deflate game, and that the whole of the camera thing.
I forgot what Spy Gate or whatever.
So it might be fanning.
But I appreciate his greatness.
I mean, six Super Bowls for Super Bowl MVPs.
I mean, three NFL MVP's.
You gotta just appreciate that.
I mean, so I'm not the biggest Brady fan, but the same time, Like wild like this is a really, really good athlete.
We gotta appreciate and like what he's doing that 43 years old to he's still yeah, doing things that's really a ball lately to give him credit e work.
But holy ****, uh, they got chemistry.
They haven't even had, like, the whole healthy game back with everybody, so and he's still bawling.
I mean, ****, you're speaking of the bucks, though.
I noticed you said on Twitter that Do you think the bus aren't using this properly? He said they should probably trade with.
They're not using it properly.
That's gonna expect I was gonna give you opportunity kind expand upon that.
Look, I mean, it's not just because of a Mike Evans owner and fantasy.
Uh, it's definitely a little bit of it.
Um, but I just don't understand.
Uh, his target share when Godwin is out.
I think I saw it.
It's like it's 10% in three games with Godwin.
And look, I know you have a ton of weapons.
I know you have a ton of really good players, 100%.
Understand that this dude 65 he's 27 in his prime.
He's already on the track to the Hall of Fame.
I don't think he's had a year with under 1000 receiving yards, super consistent out the gate.
I mean, this dude's amazing physical freak.
He's placed through everything, and they just they just don't really get him the ball.
You know, it's more like Scotty Miller.
It's more like Rob Gronkowski, good guys, but that those guys should be changed pace.
And even if you look at him as a wide receiver to which you shouldn't, I think if anything, it should be one a one b with him and God one.
You could get up a **** ton form right now.
I mean, everybody would love this guy middle of this prime.
I mean, think of the payload the Packers would give you for him or even the Bears or any of these teams that are close, if you're not going to use him as a one A or even really shown the love is it to? Unless, you know, half your receivers air out, get that payday, get some defense.
I mean, yeah, so it's kind of go off your point like I disagree.
Obviously, eso authorities defense.
I mean, every place, all demons already.
So, like, I don't think that's like an aerial focused on Probably.
I mean, doesn't hurt to have more defense because it always should happen.
And it doesn't hurt to have picks, but yeah, I see. Just keep them.
I mean, obviously they have a lot of weapons that you mentioned, So it's gonna be hard to kind of, like, have one guy really explode. Free number.
It's probably like a lot of sharing, but also I think you're forgetting is he's more of a deep guy.
I mean, he's really fast, like, really talented, like he likes going for the deep ball and Tom Brady of 43.
I mean, Tom Brady will create there really a deep quarterback.
He doesn't interrupt the strongest arm and launching a downfield.
That's just not his game that's more like Aaron Rodgers kind of quarterback.
He's never been like that.
Kind of just movement were solid, kind of like a really good game manager doing like the short to medium routes unless you have 43.
But some of our powers like blacking now.
I mean, obviously just old age.
You don't throw deep and hard.
I was thinking, Yeah, right now, I've been kind of a weird spot because Brady like, he's just not a strong and I think because he used to be so it's hard to kind of throws deep balls that Mike Evans is like looking for.
So I still want to get involved.
Kind of like try to have them use like more medium roast babies.
Try to get the ball more s how it's Alan Johnson plays like yours like a lot of medium around, kind of like right now, maybe Evans in that spot every once in a while.
And that's what I was looking at.
And it's just like flashes of stuff where it's like, really, you know, you know, playing Vegas who have ah, horrible secondary like you confined them one way or another um, like against the Bears near the end of the game when they need to drive up the field.
They were doing like, 10 yard real quick out routes near the sticks.
And he's so big, you just shields the whole whole ball.
It's like, you know this guy, Where is this all game? You know, their offense was horrible against the Bears, like do this, you know, get to the goal line and you throw fades to him.
It's like, great.
And the next time they go down there and they try a trick play, they're using him.
And, you know, you look at his bad games, really.
He was covered by Gary Alexander, which, um, he has given up no catches to Ridley Evans or Will Fuller on two targets playing against him.
That's outrageous on, but outside of that, you know, it really is only bad game injured week one against New Orleans and this past week, so I'm not too concerned, but it's still something like you really can't find them anymore.
You can't like scheme form or something.
Um, but yeah, he is more of a deep receiver.
I just thought they'd scheme or for him? Yeah, so, like, that's really maybe maybe could work on the next thing.
I mean, you still have 10.
We thought that this time more games to go.
So they got a lot of time to figure out like the best spots for him.
But I think adding A B probably makes it a little harder this time.
To me, he's gonna want his touch.
Maybe is more all around.
So maybe e think he'll be easier, kind of fit in because you could do short, deep anything you want, these really talented receivers.
We got to see how that shaped so, but I think, but definitely could like using more.
Maybe, but I think it just hard game because he's a deep gun.
Brady is not the kind of corporate anymore.
It will be interesting to see how Brown does do because, like the one print of thought like you said is completely correct.
There's no bad way to think about it.
He can do anything.
The other train of thought is if he does do everything, does the defense put a lot of onus on them, leaving Evans and Godwin and one on one more often.
Like cool stuff.
Yeah, that could help Evans too.
Yeah, because yeah, e I think we're done with the bucks passing attack.
Like, who do you double like? I don't make it a double.
Anyone, really? Others.
Only one guy wide open a one on one coverage somewhere.
Well, I guess really hard to kind of go after.
Like looking the NFC. I think that covers matchup for them, actually.
Honest by the Rams.
Like, I think the Rams is probably causing some problems because he got, like, a deal that ramps.
He could play receivers one of them, because he was, like, argue the best in the league, I think.
Obviously, Aaron Donald.
He causes problems and particularly escape escape.
Um, the pressure as much as they used to.
Obviously, he never been very mobile guys.
Especially now three really can't be mobile on the old line, but she gets Chicago.
Looked very suspect, even gets a Khalil Mack.
He had he had had his way.
So cool. Mac has his way gradually.
Aaron Donald could do against the old line, so I don't know.
So, like, they better hope they don't play them in the playoffs.
They There'll be a very probably. That's what I think.
Yeah, well, And like you talked about their defensive line, I'll be the first to admit I was that wrong.
I thought losing Vita Veil would be a big gut punch.
It's like they didn't even lose anybody.
Um, I was thinking more like cornerbacks.
They played well up to this point, I'm just a little worried about the secondary come playoff time.
They have with, uh, Winfield Jr.
Uh, yeah, from Minnesota. He's Yeah.
He was great in college. I mean, like, hey, had a pick last game. Pretty sure.
So, like, yeah, so if you can show up to I was super eye on him coming out of college.
Course packers And it take him like every other player that I love.
Um, but yeah, he's really good.
It's just a little bit.
E don't wanna talk about it.
Well, in five years, if he still sucks a trust me, I was not a fan of that at all, but, you know, I I just worry a little bit about, you know, the discipline and the experience of the defense because, I mean, we saw it with the Bears.
They were disciplined.
They weren't experience at all.
You do that in the playoffs, you're gonna get smacked.
So we'll see, though.
They have a lot of leverage Thio to use.
I mean, ****, they still have Leonard Fournette.
So, yeah, I mean, like like he had something like solid games.
I mean, and then look at the bus schedule, Week 11 and play the Rams, actually.
So, like, yeah, that'll be Monday night, number 23rd.
I'll be a very interesting game to watch the thing. Yeah.
Oh, yeah, for sure.
Um, that's all I have.
The main topics.
I have some quick kids taken to the bank questions first.
You got any questions? Anything? Uh, unfortunately, I do have one that it hurts a little bit to talk about.
Um what is your? It's another panic meter one.
I didn't want to hear this one on a scale of 1 to 10.
How much are you panicking about the Wisconsin Badgers football team? Obviously, if you have not seen their quarterback, Boy Wonder five star recruit went 22 21 248 yards, five touchdowns no pics.
Hey, has the cove it, Um because of Big 10 rules? Hey, has set out for 21 days, three weeks.
That takes him past the game against Michigan, too.
Um, Jack Cohen, their original starter broken foot.
And they're back up to grand birds.
So their third string, also as cool but still is yet to be confirmed.
So they're going to therefore Stringer from Kimberly High School.
Never lost a game in high school, But still Danny van and boom, he's a junior.
Um, I'm still panicking.
He's been there a lot, so I'm not gonna put it a 10.
Like he's not a freshman.
And we talked a little bit about this off the air.
Um, they have a couple games to get their running game. Right.
Um, but Nebraska looked pretty good against Ohio State in that first half and Purdue.
I mean, they're a team that Wisconsin has had trouble pulling away from.
I'm not gonna put it at 10.
I'll put it at a high eight.
Especially for that michigan game.
Uh, this could get very bad.
All right, so I don't need to be this guy, but I'm down a little bit, because just down, not not quite the panic level sound very antsy.
Just just calm down.
Yeah. I mean, obviously way to be conservative.
I mean, I'm not a big badger fans, I guess.
Having the voice of reason here.
Yeah. It's obviously not a good book.
I mean, that's very like, kind of like worrisome at the same time. Like batteries.
They're not known for hardback played.
I mean, they're doing for the running attack.
I mean, their defense that you use sums up So the same time, Yeah, I think just, like, get the running game together, focus on that more.
And just because the passing attack is and that definitely never really been a focus coming emergency enough, he had no pressure going in.
He's a second string quarterback, something Jack cones.
And he's he's out with a broken foot or whatever.
So I mean, obviously you probably gonna ride on birds, So yeah, I would say the quarterback issue obviously is a concern, but Monty not get like a Daniel Jones from the ball.
Every couple of a couple of snaps, I think it'll be okay.
Just like, yeah, focusing Running attack, like Wisconsin is known for, and it'll be OK.
And then look at the Big 10 West.
It was not a good week for the Big 10 West.
I mean, I was lost.
I will lost Minnesota.
Lost bad to Michigan.
So the same time, Like badges.
They don't bring the West, so e want to fight panic? Yeah.
Go on. Go on. Sorry.
I just wanted quite a pity.
Yeah, because you have the West looked very suspect.
I mean, we talked about Minnesota, like, possibly winning the last episode.
I made me a dark horse, but both teams and only good this past weekend especially like the mess of the game he had.
They got drilled with the Michigan defense. I want that car back.
I absolutely destroyed, but it's been scored.
I was like, What is going on here? So, yes, I say it's not my panic time.
Probably put it in, like, six.
If Mertz man, what do you mean, calm down? You're only one number lower than me.
Okay, close enough.
Yeah, like 55 All right, pay attention, but not like panic time.
I mean, if you're a badger fan prior to that positive test, that was a perfect week for you.
Who are the three teams that are possibly going to contend? Most likely.
Minnesota, Nebraska, They all lost, Produced, squeaked by a victory against Iowa.
Um, Northwestern beat the **** out of Maryland.
Maryland Isn't that good, though, uh, to his younger brother is not to attack of a low.
Uh, So you had a path? Um, It'll be interesting, though.
Like I said, they play, uh, Nebraska.
That could be tough, but we'll see what Nebraska we see.
They should be able to win that.
But Michigan, um, his Michigan's offense that good was Michigan's defense.
That bad? Was this just first week jitters? We still have a lot to find out.
So and it will sleep.
Yeah, for sure, but yeah, So I didn't have any fair and questions today, but yeah, we know that a quick hits it kind of just like I was listening topics and kind of just have to get quick talent about each one eso today. Trevor Lawrence.
He was acts today about, like, possibly going to the NFL, but he says he's up the area but never returned to claim so that I could go back to clubs for a senior year.
What? Your thoughts on that let me down on his part.
I would go back to if the Jets air first.
I mean, this team is a dumpster.
Fire. Stay back.
I mean, yeah, the same time.
Like number one pick, it always will be bad.
You always go for the money.
It could be some kind of freak injury could be a tool kind of thing.
So I still you over the money, so he better go in the NFL.
I don't care whose drafting them.
Like I don't feel paper at bats, and you're gonna get paid or sit out.
Yeah, you could just do that.
Yeah, I always do that.
So the next next topic, um So Danny Green on the interview yesterday, he was saying that if the endeavor comes back in December, that we couple last episode that a lot of the star players, like including lebron, was sit out for a whole first month of the season because that's too quick of a turnaround because it zone to stop playing that October.
All your thoughts be on.
That would be okay with that.
Is that understandable? Yeah, that's what I understand.
I mean, not only physically, but mentally.
These guys air drained.
Um and I mean, the guy's after the first round for drained because remember, they had practices and then games and then the playoffs.
So, like especially like LeBron's butlers? Yeah, they should sit out on top of that.
I think it's great because I don't think there's gonna be much fanfare soon either, because everybody's everybody's tired, even the fans.
So, yeah, I mean, I said they should play.
I mean, I'm sorry I said they should play.
I mean, the professional athletes, they get paid millions of dollars at the same time.
They should've I usually prepared.
I mean, I would say two months is okay to just turn around the informants off before the bubble.
Even so, like, they have the they have the rest.
They should be fresh and get to go, in my opinion, so I said, go the I mean, they're getting paid.
I mean, imagine you sitting out not working for a month because you're mentally exhausted.
If I had a ring on this finger, I would not give a **** about that.
By the championship ring, I'd be sitting on my couch forever smoking cigars, drinking booze and partying up a storm.
But as his knee.
Yeah, All right.
Next next quick hit topic.
Um, obviously mentioned beginning episode Odell Beckham Jr 20 CLR for the season.
I mean, obviously that really hurts specially for SERC, right? Like right, Um, is he done? I mean, can you come back from this? You think he can? But it's tough.
He's always been injury prone.
How effectively d and he's getting older.
Hey, can any will? We just won't see the Odell Beckham Jr that we know in love.
Yes, so I have to disagree here.
I think he will come back stronger than ever.
I mean, look at Adrian Peterson.
He was like he was done.
Wrote him off, came back perhaps to the injury.
V p and almost broke the rushing record in the season.
And I think Odell, he's a good mentality.
I mean, like, he's really good worker, like he's very confident himself.
Very confident player in that he trains hard.
So I believe you can do I think he's come back around another, so I'm not panicking yet for him.
Um, Then last quick, it topic.
Um, he's got signed for the press squad for Ravens.
Does this need anything? Yeah, because the Ravens wide receivers suck.
Um, I think he should have been signed yet.
He's injury prone, but you still got the talent.
He still got hands.
Anybody consign him for **** your league minimum.
It's worth a try.
ALS worth a shot if if he sucks.
Not that much money, if he's good.
So I would say probably doesn't mean anything coming at the same time like armor, The state if he tried out there and, like towards Achilles, like, first practice with them crazy like that.
So you never Honestly? No, I'm like, he also brings a lot of, like Vegas and drama with him, so I'm not gonna really families, especially a younger team like the Ravens.
They get a lot of younger town.
I don't want this Brian positive experience that I don't really like the movement that much.
But I mean, he probably end up getting hurt or some dealing with things.
Who knows? E mean, what the Wait and see.
I mean, a same time.
He was done a little bogus by the Cowboys.
I feel like if you put I feel like one of those guys Were he adapted to his environment.
So, like the Cowboys, where it's just like craziness, nonstop.
Like he'll let himself be known.
But like if you put him in like a Green Bay or Chicago or like an L A where things are pretty quiet and pretty close, I think you do well.
We'll see just frack a squad for now, but he'll probably will probably get a shot sooner or later.
Alright, So that's all I had or topics and quick hits and everything.
Um, given last, you want to get off your chest or anything? Yes, I dio Thursday night football.
It's going to be a murder If I'm not mistaken.
It zits Falcons Panthers.
I have the dates mixed up.
Monday night football is Buccaneers.
Um, the Buccaneers might actually went, like 62.
I'm gonna be watching that game just for the offensive, For the means.
Because, you know, Brady wants to take it out on the Giants, Even though Eli isn't there.
I'm stoked for that game.
Oh, man, it's It's going to be good.
And Thursday night game Falcons, Carolina.
The Falcons win, but it's a falcon.
So Falcons find a way to lose.
I mean, like that top girly play.
I mean, the way he like.
He like trying not to get the end accidentally, get end zone to get, try to chance, toe, take the lead, and they won the game.
So yeah, that they'll find a way to lose.
So, I mean, all those loan leads to their Super Bowl lead of the leads.
This year's Chicago Dallas.
They'll find a way to lose.
I would like to say so.
We're looking forward to, like the Green Bay San Francisco games.
I'll be looking for like that Thursday night game. Yeah.
For those of you that need fantasy football advice, I'm telling you, uh, tomorrow Wednesday, uh, check my twitter.
I go live with Fleury Sports.
I said last Wednesday, clearly would be a top seven running back and have to touch down.
It was on accident, but it was a top seven running back into touchdowns.
So I'll be here.
We'll be back Saturday.
We got stuff to tell you that's gonna come true.
It's just whether you catch it or not.
So definitely stick around when we come back.
Saturday at probably evening tonight. Time Saturday.
Um, a lot of the clock didn't work out too well with all the games going on, but got to tune in, man, you're missing.
You're missing good stuff.
So make sure you get back here because, hey, we're trying to make your money here, all right? Yes.
So that's all ahead today, So I think it will concludes episode for today s episode Dying of reasonable doubt.
Uh, Chris, that's Trevor Tweet at us.
Anything? The most questions for next episode? If you wanted to discuss, uh, I'm at C underscore more six Trevor that have a good one
