Yeah, This thing is the power ranking show.
Sam Fetterman Filling.
It's Michael again.
Well, got a lot to talk about.
We have reached the two minute warning of the first half of a week of the first half at the NFL season.
This is the last week of the first half of the season.
Well, technically, then there's seven minutes and 50 seconds left.
The first, if you take it by, if you take it on that kind of basis, whatever, the first half is almost over.
Better actually, no, because there's 17 weeks.
Actually, you're wrong.
No, there's not.
There's 22 weeks fair point.
So, like both? No, but you.
But you were saying that you were wrong.
We are both wrong.
Who actually knows how many weeks there's gonna be? Good point.
All right, let's scroll down to my power rankings, by the way.
I know, um, some adjustments in the last 20 minutes, so Oh, yeah.
Yeah, Number 32.
As his weekly tradition number 32 on the New York, the New York Butt fumble.
I ran out of things to say about this time last week.
I don't have anything new to say about him.
So just like last week, I differ over to my guest.
Talked about the Jets.
They played a good first half.
I like this like this game because it was the local game for me.
Yes, I got this game.
Instead of Steelers tightens, it was on the small screen read.
Yes, while Red Zone is on the big screen, even though which I'm not being a witch, but Nancy and Romo we got Finally, we got Nancy Romo this week.
And of course, it's the week you go to the game, right? Hey, you'll see it, Event e told my friend today.
If I have to go in a hazmat suit, I will do it.
I almost e I would I would, um e Nazi.
This Nazi, this generation of the Patriots.
But anyway, anyway, the Jets, they played a good first half against the Bills.
Um, they and they the Bills didn't score a touchdown.
No, if I'm the Bills I think this is a lot more concerning Yeah, they must.
They moved down a spot.
They must have. They did.
I just didn't like the bills this week.
But there was this one throw from Donald that really caught my eye was third down and long.
I believe any through a any through the Braxton barrios who made a diving catch.
It was really barrios because I've heard both I i se barrios.
I've always had barriers because I've heard both, though.
I mean, he didn't play a game for us, so I don't really know.
You wouldn't want I would you? We I mean, I think it's Berrios, but I've heard both as well.
All right, so yeah, Speaking of Donald's here, how long are gonna give him a pass for making one really good throw a game? I'm not giving him past for that.
I'm just I'm saying, like Jeff just said that he makes one throw.
He isn't the problem.
He's a problem, right? That's a good way, I think.
Jets fans acknowledge that, but people are like we don't need Thio like he's fine, like we don't exactly.
He's fine he's not know.
He's, he's, he's capable in the right system, right? This is not the right system.
They're not supporting him the way you need to support of a rookie contract quarterback.
So I'm not blaming Sam Donald for his failure is an NFL quarterback.
I'm not blaming Josh Rosen for his failure as an NFL quarterback, but Sam Donald is a failure as an NFL quarterback.
Couldn't put it better.
You know, my you know my policy three years.
Well, I think he gets a backup job somewhere.
Oh, actually, he's a good He would be a very good backup.
I would like if I have a rookie in, like in like, three years.
If I have a rookie I want I want him and Donald battling out for the job.
Of course, given that I have the right support system, right, because you can't let the rookie end up like Donald.
Because remember, Arnold's there's through was a picnics.
Sure, obviously you're a I'm Robby Anderson later in that game and he had a he had a great game that they were like 48 17.
Oh my God, I went into school the next day.
I it was It was like it was like I was hit.
And this and half the people are Jets fans, not even everyone because that other after Giants fans and I was hit with this wave off optimism that Jets fans seem tohave until the season starts every year on No, I'm not starts.
No, I'm not kidding, though.
I'm not getting every single year.
It's the same thing with the New York Mets.
Yeah, the Jets fans think they could go seven and nine, and by the way, the fact that that's a good season is crazy.
But the Jets showed me something this week on defense.
Better than better than previous, but still not very good.
And I have the Patriots. 39 of the Jets.
This is Jacksonville, correct? That's that's who.
This team is not very good.
They're just This team is seen in the Dumpster fire.
Let's get that out there.
But they're not getting their not getting as much attention because of how bad the Jets are, right? Like Father Doug Marone, Exactly.
I couldn't people don't give them enough credit and how bad they are.
Yeah, they're they're not overrated, like their underrated Lee Bad.
But that's not what I'm not saying.
For the Jets, this team would be made fun off endlessly and the Giants, because the doctor a big market as well.
But the Jaguars are small market jets.
Yeah, but the the Jaguars, that's they say that for gotten local.
Yeah, they are like people talk about them for one year.
And then those three weeks when they started three, you know, And then after that, I haven't heard a thing from them.
And you got to think Gardner Minshew mother reported that he might get benched.
Yeah, and then comes out and balls out in the second half.
And then I told you he's Fitzpatrick.
Yeah, he is the He is so inconsistent.
He's Fitzpatrick down you.
And instead of the beard, it's the mustache.
Yeah, I really like I really liked him in college, but I don't think he's cut for the NFL.
Well, let's put it this way, Sam.
The fact that they are actively considering benching Gardner Minshew for Jake Lutton or Mike Lennon e tells you what you need to know, and they have a good running back that nobody is talking about.
He's doing well.
He hasn't people.
People might be thinking always kind of.
He has still been very good.
No, he is the number two fantasy running back this year.
Jesus, he's that good? Yes, he is.
They hunt Leonard Fournette because James Robinson is better than Leonard Fournette.
James Robinson is a better running back than Leonard Fournette in Jacksonville.
James Robinson is a better running back than Leonard Fournette.
Wow! All right, I'm James Robinson.
James Robinson averages 5.
3 yards per touch this year.
Absolutely well, he's a rookie, right? About D AB Do.
I don't see longevity from any running back.
That's what my point of this is.
I think running backs are worthless.
Yeah, we've been over that.
Leonard Fournette was supposed to be the prince who was promised.
He was that for one year.
He was decent, and now he's a third down back in Tampa.
And he wasn't even done with his rookie contract.
All right running backs are common.
Number 30 giants.
These are have been the bottom three teams since week one and they will.
Team is Yeah, just a second.
These have been the three teams at the bottom of the power ranking.
And there is nothing as well this week.
Three since week, three of the power rankings, these have been the few have a what? These have been the three teams.
The bottom of the power, I think since week three, who was below them, Um, in week one, like Detroit or something.
Try and find him. Here we go.
Where is the week one? Here we go in Week one.
Uh, the Giants were the team that was not in the bottom three.
Washington was in there.
Instead, in week two, Detroit was in the bottom three and the Giants were 29.
And then, since then he's been about him.
Uh, giants are horrible.
Yeah, Another team that we're just not talking about how bad they are because of the Jets.
And also because they're in the phase that the Jets were in last year really testing my three year theory.
Daniel Jones, the Giant.
The Giants are aware the Giants are right now where the Jets were last year.
Yeah, and that's pretty obvious.
Does that mean they're gonna win seven games? No, that's did it Does not.
Do you remember how bad the Jets were in the first half? Yeah.
The Jets were the worst 7.
19 NFL history, and I genuinely believe that.
Yeah, I could buy that.
I genuinely believe that.
I think they're the worst 7 19 we ever saw, ever.
I meant by that.
But there winds were such Davi winds, though.
Yeah, they were.
I'll tell you, though, like Daniel Jones.
I mean, I have my three year theory.
I have my three year rule.
Give your guy three years.
It's a rule, not a theory.
I know I backed right three year rule.
Um, and I got him three years, But the thing about three year rule is getting on my eyes. There is an exception.
I mean, but guys who are drafted the franchise quarterbacks, if you're drafted by the Browns, you don't count, does bigger Mayfield count.
Baker counts Bakers.
You only want pounded in the history of the Brown's organization.
Tim Couch, number one overall pick.
I know who Tim Couch is? I'm just saying, You know who he is, by the way.
Three quarterbacks in a row in that draft, and only one of them, and and only one of them was decent.
By the way, there are exceptions that, like there are there are because that rule what Josh, did I e Josh Rosen to get benched.
All right, That was I was not I thought they need to support him.
No, in Miami, in Miami, In Miami.
Once the Cardinals gave up on him, I gave up on him.
Um, anyway, I didn't I didn't think Kyler was a can't miss God.
This team, the Giants joke.
I don't have too much to say about Joe, Judge.
I mean, we already talked about that.
We don't have to say this, but e don't know.
I really don't know.
But without, say, Kwan Barkley, this team has no means to move the ball except for Daniel Jones legs.
And those fallout from those don't work to help me.
It was only a matter of time before we tripped around that reference.
You knew it was coming.
The wind probability graph is now welcome to the power rankings.
Show is now We get into the actual rankings.
I have an interesting 1.
29 to I have Dallas.
They might be 32 next week.
No, no, they could lose by 70.
Who are they? You know, the Jets were playing Kansas City? Yeah, I say, Oh, God, that they're gonna lose my 70.
By the way, I looked it up.
The New York Jets can see Chief spread right now, which is currently sitting at 19.5.
That's not the biggest is the fifth biggest in a regular season game ever.
I'm pretty sure that last year, Week three, they were like, two.
Bigger than that.
Dallas minus 22 a half on Miami in New England, minus 21 a half in New York.
I went to that game and hold on, and Jarrett System blew it with the pick six we were going to cover.
Ah, then I could be wrong, but I believe you know you're probably not you.
That is one of the largest spreads in the history of in the history of the world.
So I I know I'm trying Think of like what It was done.
Um but let's let's move back to the to the Dallas Cowboys.
Their issue is the defense.
And also now the quarterback situation.
Their their issue is the entire football.
Don't has not practiced all week.
It sounds like a least for this week.
Is gonna be bending Nucci playing quarterback for them.
It will be bending usually, or it will be Cooper rush.
Right? So good luck, Dallas.
Like seriously, the Dallas Cowboys.
They could play.
I honestly think that they could.
Probably that maybe one out of 10 times the Dallas Cowboys led by Benton, UCI would lose to a college team.
I don't know that.
I mean, Ben DeNucci.
It's an NFL football team.
No, but they're completely injured.
Their quarterback put FCS and then the 33rd ranked defense in the NFL.
Okay, they're not There's one out of 10.
It will be within 10 points.
Okay, I could give you that, but I cannot give you a win, okay? Yeah, yeah, I get that.
I think I was going far.
Uh, that comes to Alice.
I am just not, I am not at Well, I don't even think I don't even do this proves that the toe bring back Prescott.
I just think that it proves they need anyone confidence.
I think the Dalton, Just like he was running around like a chicken with his head cut off.
You know why? Because he was running around like chicken cut off, which is about what was going to stay here.
The problem of the Cowboys, the biggest of the Cowboys that no one would talk about is how terrible their online is right now because all of their good linemen their injured Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, Travis Frederick retired Little Collins out for the season.
Um, who's the other guard? They had a rotating left guard for? Well, what? This'll has long been the best offensive line in football? Not anymore.
No, it's not even healthy, not even healthy.
Are they good? Are they the best off in the line of football? Know they're bad right now? Yeah, I mean, like, not even not even as a healthy, often line.
Would they be a top three offensive line or a top five offensive line? They're just not healthy and they sit 24th in run blocking and 17th in passbook.
Yeah, so they're not get No, they're not.
Um, you know who else has not been good hearing? You know what? This year Zeke hasn't been any good either. Yeah.
We need to talk about Zeke.
He has five fumbles.
We need to talk about Zeke, though.
You seven weeks like what's going on with him? What do we think? He's not a top five running back and like anymore.
I think it's mental thing.
Are you too? And, yeah, you have to move these rankings really quickly.
You're running backs.
You can't Top five now is not.
And I'm telling people Not like like people are trying to sell him.
Like trying to buy him low and fantasy.
I'm telling people, not thio.
Yeah, like even if it's like giving up nick job.
I'm not a fan of that.
You know why Nick Chubb has an offensive line and he hasn't fumbled five times.
Not just an awful When it is an amazing offensive. Fine.
Yeah, We'll get to them.
Yeah, it's unbelievable.
Who is 28? The Washington football team keeping the NFC East train rolling here.
The NFC least contains three of the five worst teams in the National Football League.
Yep, and the other name isn't particularly good.
Yeah, it's just that there's our first e way.
Exact same somewhere.
Yes, that will change.
Yeah, that well, that will change will absolutely change, because I because I have a bunch of teams lower and higher than I know you will.
Yeah, I think I just kind of threw some team names around in there to fit some narratives, to be honest with you, so the mid twenties could get a little shaky. Alright.
But with the football team, by the way, Congratulations.
You beat Andy Dalton.
Now that used to be our thing.
Meeting Andy Dalton.
Sometimes, um, the best quarterback in Buffalo Bill's history.
Well, I'm not gonna disrespect him.
Kelly, the second best quarterback in Buffalo Bill's history.
You know, everyone was happy for Buffalo that week, except for the entire city of Baltimore.
We were so sick of it.
I wasn't happy for Buffalo.
You were like, shut up.
But I wanted Buffalo to never make the playoffs in the history of the world.
They could be the joke forever.
And you blew it.
It's like Cleveland.
It's like, God, why do they have to make the playoffs? Its's every country have that one city that you make fun of in America.
You make fun of Cleveland.
In Soviet Russia, we make fun of Cleveland, right? Yeah, That was it.
Um, but Washington, this is what happened.
Your once strength is a D line.
Now you can go and being and one good receiver and one good running back.
And really good offensive guard running back.
Mm. He's all right.
Um, better fantasy back.
Finney is in real life, but he's a decent back.
McLaurin is very good. I like McLaurin.
Imagine him with a real quarterback.
You saw that graph I sent you with Alex Smith? Yeah, well, yeah.
He's not the comeback player of the year.
Yes, he is, to be fair, Alex Smith.
Like what? 15 downs or something like that.
And they were the worst 20 snaps any quarterback has played this year by a long mile.
I don't honestly here like I honestly don't care.
He's playing guys that Ramsey line anyway.
It doesn't matter.
He was the worst quarterback in the NFL for like the last.
I've never seen a quarterback player.
His leg amputated.
He does get a pass.
But he doesn't get Comeback Player of the year.
Either way, we like it or not.
He's gonna win it.
I mean, I wouldn't be against it.
I just think that it's the wrong move.
And either way, it's not Cam.
We'll get to Cam sooner than you think.
They're not next to her.
Okay, E r 28 It would be appropriate, but well, we're gonna skip right to through.
Um, let's move on here.
Number 27 number 27 in Atlanta.
What was it? Atlanta.
I think this has never happened before.
This is a team that has an elite quarter.
Alright. Ah, good quarterback.
I did not mean that.
I did not mean that you have an elite quarterback.
The Jets have an elite quarterback.
There you go. Sorry.
A formerly elite now now very capable of being elite every once in a while, quarterback, legal leader in passing yards, Which is which just proves how out of context that statistic is.
Jamie's having 5000 birds didn't prove that 40 900 from Jack.
Yeah, adapted a decent year. Last year.
He was a top 15 quarterback.
How are you? Top 10? But you could argue out.
You get my point. Yeah.
Um, now Matt Ryan has the ability to be a top quarterback in the NFL.
He's shown that to me, But this team, even I've had it up to here with this team.
They suck at football when they need to be good, They haven't they just It's not Dan Quinn.
It's not on Lee Dan Quinn.
Todd Gurley scored a touchdown when he tried to.
Yeah, he's Ahmad Bradshaw, he anti Todd Gurley.
I had him on my fantasy team that week, by the way, by the way, everyone is telling me to take leave. Ian Bell.
That year I had the first pick I took girly and he was basically the M V p of the league.
He was the fantasy M V. P.
Mahomes was insane, but Curly was the fantasy.
Um, now Atlanta.
If football was three quarters long, they would be a top 15 in number seven.
Sure, I don't know about that, but they'd be a top 15 team.
They and they also have a Super Bowl.
Well, maybe even two.
No, because maybe they made it.
Maybe they, like, had A s an NFC championship leader and are a divisional round lead.
And they blew it.
I can't think of one.
Oh, no, that was Minnesota that blew that game back to that.
But I would say the only way I could think of was Minnesota, man.
And that was a top 10 team NFL history to that blew that game.
Yeah, I absolutely agree with that.
Um, Well, even top three didn't.
Well, Oh, yeah, I think it's number two.
When? When? Yeah, probably.
I mean, I mean, 2017 patriots everyone thought was going 16.
I did not think there because that Edelman got hurt, so I mean, I have never going sixties.
No, I hadn't going 14 and two or 15.
I bought it. That year.
And now? Yeah, I did it.
Z One of my greatest shames way were good though.
You make sure you have no kidding. You were good.
All right. You want care? Number 26.
Can we go for seven in a row? The Houston Texans? No.
Who do? You got down four spots from last week.
The NFC East tour finishes in Philadelphia.
I have the Eagles a lot higher than this Onley because I just Onley because I just wanted to prove a point with a bunch of these teams.
Yeah, because you wanted to prove a point.
No, but the Eagles showed me something last week.
They looked actually like a football team.
That wine? Uh, yeah, but yeah, it was against the Giants.
It was the only thing anyone in the NFC East is. Don't meet this season.
Is that an accomplishment, though, actually, Yes.
They showed us something they did.
It's zero thing for an NFC East team, it's an accomplishment, But no, it's not this team.
For the first time in 20 years ago, they did but there's a different team and they're all injured.
Have you seen there in your report? It's It's like it's like a freaking in the Browns quarterback.
Like it's like the U. S. Legal code.
Yeah, it's got the 513 along the all the things.
Sam pay looked good last week in the in the last few minutes.
Sam, this team is to hurt to be relevant.
This team gonna be relevant, Okay? In terms of being a contender, okay? They're not gonna be relevant.
I mean, like, they're not good.
They're not good.
They're not, But they're better than a bunch of other teams.
They're better than six other teams.
I have them better than more than six other teams.
Who? You say you had a 26? Houston? Yes.
They're not 25 by the way. I'll tell you that now.
Well, can we do 25 now or are we gonna talk about Travis? Fulgham is gonna torch the Cowboys next week.
He might just go for 10 and 200 Might really might.
Who was it? Morris Claiborne guarding him.
He's like cowboys now. No.
Drafted by them, like, eight years ago with the seventh pick.
I mean, I don't even know who their number one corner is right now.
Nobody who's EA knows A Yeah, the dude that Who was it that announced that pick? Oh, God.
Drew Pearson? Yes.
And it was bad at And he what made it even better was he announced his He, like, pronounced the name perfectly.
Draft is the best time for people that don't know anything about their teams to announce the picks.
Okay, let's move on here.
So that's who I have.
And the answer is e Have the Broncos hired in this for the sole reason of what they did against the Patriots? They actually won a game.
And it's part of the point that I'm trying to prove.
We need to talk.
Yeah. Drew, Lock.
We need to talk.
You're not good.
What's you bought? The high I did.
I thought he would be a decent quarterback.
I thought he'd be a good quarterback.
I thought he would take a step up, which I thought was gonna break out.
I thought next year would be his break out, and I don't even think he's gonna break out again.
Watching him play football is like three years, three years? Yeah, I'll give him three years, but I don't think it's gonna happen.
Problem is, next year's your three and he'll be playing game number like eight of his career.
And can we also talk about one of the best and most underrated offensive tackles in the NFL? Garett Bolles? Where the hell are you come from? Because he sucked last year.
I don't know what he won me my fantasy this week with an 87.
2, I don't know, all the sudden he dominant.
What did he do over the office? Because he was terrible last year? I don't know, but all of a sudden he's a dominant offensive.
Has been the worst tackling football.
Last year, our new house okay, second worst, tackling football last year.
E could buy that a little bit more, but I still can't necessarily buy it.
I know he was bad.
I remember he had six holding goals in one game last year.
I agree that he was bad.
Okay, look, he was bad.
Make a call for more penalties in the same same game ever called for one game.
But did you watch Bobby Hart play football? Yes, but he didn't have called for six holds in one game.
Yeah, but Bobby Heart just can't get his hands on anyone else in the first place.
He's like Bobby Hart is like that guy at the in.
The in the That's trying to keep you out of the state.
That's just like going like this.
He's like the MLB field security keeping Justin Turner off the field non existent.
How did that happen, By the way? I I don't want to talk about how much of an embarrassment the MLB is.
As there's a drive in the left field by Captain.
You're doing better than I thought you would with the injuries.
Yeah, I will say that.
I thought that they would get coming to Foxboro 5.
Anything but Vic Fangio has.
Vic Fangio always looked like a very good coach.
Man, I was Justin Simmons on Justin Simmons.
I bought Justine Simons and he's paying me back.
Yeah, he's looked good.
You know who else must look very good.
Bradley Chub and Shelby Harris.
Shelby Harris? Yeah.
Shelby has been good for a couple years now.
And Cream Jackson obviously is another guy who's really showing me.
Yeah, I like him.
Their defense shown up with that. That was gonna happen.
I love their defense.
Their defense has a lot of good piece.
They just haven't put together.
And now they have, even with their player.
Well, no brand McM**** is pretty good.
He he might be their best player.
He's not that good, though.
He plays in Denver.
You gotta keep that in mind here.
He made six for six against us.
So did, uh, Tyler Bass.
That was not against us. That was against the Jets.
It doesn't actually. 6476 Great.
Okay, you're right.
You saw someone attempt eight field goals in the game.
Probably the Jets eight game.
Wouldn't be surprised if they go arrange eight times.
No, Like like when the jets were actually, like, able to move the football.
I have not the bungles who they have.
Houston Now the Vikings? No, the Lions that Patricia your e don't wanna talk about it.
How does that happen? Okay, falcons choked.
Um, they played the Jaguars, by the way. It's official.
Um, Matt Patricia is officially joined.
The Dan Quinn 2019 coaching for your job club? Yes.
Where his job he's actually winning is No.
I'm saying what happens this time talking to win 67 games and keep it and he's gonna keep his job and get fired next year. Exactly.
It's the It's the It's that exact theory right there.
They're gonna win six or seven games, is here.
They're gonna win seven games.
Yeah, they're gonna beat the bears.
What? They play the Bears this week? No, at some.
When? When they play the Bears E this week.
I I don't really look at the schedule until, like Thursday night.
To be honest with you, I look at what the third in that game is.
Um what is the Thursday night game? Panthers, Falcons, Um, is I like, by the way, and get to the next network.
Um, but it is also the only sporting event going on from Wednesday to Friday.
That is painful.
This'll is going.
This is going to suck, man.
That's interesting to think about. Yeah.
Detroit, uh, 30.
Didn't really show me anything about me.
That Stafford is gonna be still his last year.
He'll be back next year, but he won't be starting with that contract.
Good point. He'll be starting.
No, he won't be back.
He's done like I I just think that he's I think he's gonna he he might retire.
Really Think about the amount of hits he's digging.
That would be interesting, but it makes sense.
It does never won anything.
He's not going to win anything.
He's got all the stats.
I don't see that happening.
He has a cult of people that for some reason, think he could be a Hall of Famer.
That one dude on tick tock? No, there's a lot of people I know, but that guy bothers the crap out of me.
So, um, Matthew Stafford, if anyone else made that throw the video on their feet No, it's just that it's a It's actually kind of a normal throw that he makes look difficult.
He has the staffs to be a good quarterback.
He has the staffs have a great reputation.
He's not going to win anything.
He's taking a lot of hits. He's gonna take more.
The only game between Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford is that math is that Matt Ryan made it to a Super Bowl and one on MTV.
Yeah, and was able to win a playoff game, not just make a super like Stafford never won a playoff game.
Yeah, exactly. They have won a player cases. Barry Sanders.
They've only won one playoff game in the they've only won two playoff games. Super Bowl era.
Yeah, I mean, they're not a good football team.
They're on a football organization.
The curse of Bobby Lane's still remains.
Yeah, all right, let's let's move on 23 way.
It was if you put him there.
Well, yeah, we'll get we'll, you know we'll get to them.
No, no, that that's that's That's who I have. But we're not.
We're not up to them yet.
Or do you have the Texans know? Do the Vikings? Yes.
Minnesota, Minnesota, Minnesota.
You have Adam feeling you have Justin Jefferson.
You have Dalvin cook.
You had Yannick and Goku and then you've got fleeced.
You have Anthony Harris, You have Anthony Bar.
You have Harrison Smith and you have co vid with it. Camera dance lor.
This team has those players and Kirk cousins and literally nothing else.
They are a dumpster Fire.
Mike Zimmer is you.
You were on this case and I didn't see it.
I was blinded by the by the big name talent.
And then he'll hunter out for the season. That's bad.
He hasn't played only year.
He's out for the season and he hasn't played all year either.
They sent in GAC way away, which I Vikings legend, dude, When they when they traded for him, I was convinced that it was the playoffs and probably and maybe even the division.
You're They've won one game and it's about to be weak. Aid.
What has gone wrong? Kirk Cousins.
He can't be the only one thinking picks.
Well, is he the problem? Or is it that they have zero offensive line? Bingo.
Their offensive line is Drew Samia, and I only know his name because he's horrible.
5 Pff grade at 1.
At one point, I think that was dirt.
I think that was weak, too, that that that cannot be a thing.
No, I'm saying, like at that point or something, it was something like that.
I know it was single digits, 1.
4 past block grade.
There it is in week 30 my God, he's awful.
Yeah, he's hoard.
And that entire offensive line is an abomination.
It is a disrespect to the game of football, and yet it's stubborn in the Bengals.
Oh, on and still back, is it, though? Yeah, And by the way, Riley Reiff isn't bad.
That's why it's bearing the Bangles Airline.
But here, let's let's then take a look at this.
Pressure is given up.
Drew Saami, A 14 Dakota Does your 14 Brian O'Neill 13.
Every Cleveland five Paddle Flynt.
Riley, right? Five.
Okay, things is bad.
Very bad, right? Yeah.
What? Hey, you're not good.
They're not a good football team.
So and I was wrong.
All these things, you don't got much to say about him.
You know, um, everything That's everything that you could say has already been said, Right.
So let's move on number 20 to remove that for respondents in spite of losing, by the way, this is where I have the lions.
And this is I honestly don't know how I have the Texans.
Okay? They I honestly don't know why they're this high, but they are.
It's because you did the power rankings, not as a continuation of last week, but I was just a whole new thing.
You just thought of the league in a completely different way.
I think you're right.
Like because that's what I did.
I I looked at my ones that I made last week, made these and I was like, What? No, no, no.
Complete redo, complete radio.
And I ended up throwing together a narrative.
Yeah, and this narrative tells me the that I have texted 26 I just Well, that's where they were last week.
Yeah, and I think that they get this team.
I had them in the postseason.
I didn't have them in the playoffs, but I have them winning the division.
I get a division that doesn't get like aside from the Titans, This division is so inconsistent at football.
Yeah, but Titans were not very consistent.
Except until this year.
No, I'm saying this year, these teams, they're so inconsistent, and I don't think they look bad.
I don't think the Texans look bad this week.
They have not had a single game where I've watched at this point and say, Man, they look terrible, Know what Haven't that's the reason why he looked really good offensively against No, no, That's the reason why.
Let's go through what? Who have gone this far? The Jets.
While they looked terrible every week, the Jaguars looked terrible.
Most most weeks.
Same of the Giants.
The Cowboys look terrible.
Most last few weeks.
Washington had a couple weeks.
They looked at Atlanta and some weeks where they looked terrible fillings of cause me to look terrible.
So Atlanta's a choke job, but Denver, Denver, something weeks where they look terrible.
But But Denver is ableto win in the weeks where they look terrible.
But you're saying when you see what I mean, Though Detroit.
Yes, I could see that they're supposed to be able to look terrible.
Houston has not.
That's the reason why they're 22.
Where there Yet They're one win is Jacksonville.
And like that, it was turning e like that's concerning.
No, they're saying they have their get to have a week away.
Look good either.
That's the problem.
They look good on offense.
Against the Titans? No, as a team, talking as a team. Okay.
Yeah, but then they haven't looked good. Well, they don't have a defense.
JJ want to the insert team.
Uh, the Ravens trade rumors have finally died down.
Why is they signed Dez Bryant? No, they were pretty friend Chokwe.
Oh, why did I forget that that happened? I just talked about that.
Just went over this, um, but then wait.
They made such a good trade that I would think that the trade rumors would heat up.
Yeah, like in New England if we fleeced.
It seemed like that the trade rumors would be going crazy for the next week.
Oh, yeah, And that was the A J.
Until we signed. Does about an hour later.
E I mean, it doesn't mean you're not gonna sign.
You're not gonna trade for idiot Green.
That's Dez gets any PT this season.
I think he gets maybe 10 catches.
You know he'll get playing time, just not till after Thanksgiving.
I don't think he gets more than 10 touches this year.
Oh, yeah, I agree with that, But he'll get playing time.
I was looking at power rankings and is like a player that needs to step up for the Ravens.
Miles Boykin, I'm like, Okay, I get that.
But like Jackson is the guy that I think needs to step up.
Let's we'll talk about the Ravens in 20 minutes.
About 2.5 hours.
We'll talk about the Ravens.
We go during this show.
The Texans, um just they're just not very good.
They're not bad. They're not good.
This by the way, This is where I have Denver. Okay.
Where do you think? Do you think I have Miami? No Sensi? Yeah, it was.
Either it was either or this is the best 11 team in football they I picked them is my upside in week, two weeks in a row, and both times they barely lost the barrel.
Okay, let's talk about your franchise face, Joe Burrow and how he is the Onley thing that this team has.
By the way, can we talk about how good he looks? Not better than Justin Herbert? No, he's not better than he has not played better football than Justin Herbert, but he has played great football.
I want to talk about Tee Higgins.
It's a sailor boy, third in the league, in catches, and no one cares.
This is a super good receiving corps.
Tee Higgins has 410 yards, 58 yards per game.
I mean, the number three receiver A.
Number three Receiver A. J.
Number three receivers.
He's not that good anymore, But you get my point.
My point was, my point was, he's not that good anymore.
No, but number three receiver A. J. Green.
He looks like he's 42 though 42 yards per game.
That's good for a third receiver.
Yeah, boy is that 74 yards per game, third in the league and catches 48 catches, two touchdowns.
And who else? Robby Anderson, I believe, are easily Robby Anderson, Onley Robby Anderson and Hopkins.
And more catches than that feeling? Probably not feeling.
No, it's Robbie.
I know it's Robinson, Robby Anderson and Hopkins and more catches than Yeah, but just watch the way this team plays.
They just need to throw the ball 100,000 times a game.
They dio because look again, they got no defense.
They got the offensive line, right? Joe Mixon, do anything with no online and without Joe Mixon.
What's gonna happen with Geo? Bernard is amazing for them right now, because all that has passed and Geo Bernard has quietly been one of the best receiving back.
So leave for a couple of years now.
Okay, Top 10 but not top five.
I stretched a little bit, but yeah, you're right.
He's very might be top 10.
No, you know, he is, and they just look, Carlos, son, laugh.
He's definitely That was a terrible trade.
No, it was not a terrible trade.
I was surprised I got anything for him.
I thought they would have to cut him.
That's true, but it's a terrible look for the organization.
Yeah, they now are in the situation.
Oh, by the way, Joe Burrow.
How many of them? In his fault, though, I have no idea, because I've watched them and I've noticed a fumble thing and I went back.
I just want to mention that I didn't watch all eight, but I watched a couple of them and they were not.
Some of them were, but not all of them were his fault.
No, I mean, I'm not trying to say that these Daniel Jones is not that that was My point is he's not.
Also, you're in a division with the Ravens, so you have to play against those ball hawks.
Yeah, and the Steelers Steelers, quietly fumbled, forced a lot of fumbles as well.
Watt is number one and number two and in takeaways.
Yeah, are they also number one, number two, internal or differential? Because I think that spat So that's problem with that might be the most important statin football high gray Like? I think it needs a I mean, yeah, it probably is the most important stat in football.
I'm pretty sure it's 23 years in a row.
The leader and turnover differential has made the playoffs every year for the last 23 years or something like that.
Um, let's move on here to number 20.
This is where I got Miami.
This where you have Miami? No.
Is there any of us? God! Oh, my God.
What has what is happening with this team? Cam Newton? Yeah.
Let's start with you already.
Let's start with you.
Ha ha ha ha! Sunny yourself.
You, James White.
You definitely don't suck.
You also don't suck the running game.
The running game is decent.
The receivers, You all suck your number.
One receiver is Dimier Bird.
The mere bird sucks.
He's 1/4 receiver on a team with a decent receiving corps.
He is a cut on teams with good receiving course.
He would have gotten cut by the Bangles.
The Bengals have four or five guys better than him at the receiver position, the Bangles, the offensive line is injured toe crap in Hell and back and Michael on when it was amazing.
But that doesn't change the fact that you can't If you can't protect Cam Newton, he can't do anything.
And Cam Newton is now losing confidence because his receivers suck.
And in turn, it's making Cam Newton suck.
And now the defense, the vaunted Patriots defense that can tackle Jeff Wilson.
This might be there were the play that sums up the entire season.
Kyle, use check hip Stefan Gil board.
Gilmore just falls down and doesn't get up for the rest of the play.
And then there was this picture.
Pull up the picture.
I don't have Victor.
Okay, I will find it because I know I sent it to you and let's just pull it up quickly.
I better have sent it to you, but here I think I can pull it up.
Um, somewhere else.
Here, here we go.
I'm going to share my screen.
This picture when I when I pull it up, is the New England Patriots in 2000 and 20 Look atyou on Bentley.
He sucks E o Mike Last week talking about how good he played against the Broncos and guess they didn't Even I don't even think there was.
Okay, look at him.
Are you guys just walking in between the center and the quarterback? He's walking and Bentley jumps off.
That's the look.
It's not even a defensive lineman. He's a linebacker.
There were there were only a few Patriots that I thought looked good this week.
Damian Harris, who's now injured.
Jacoby Meyers, who for him good is not dropping the football and getting open for maybe one or two catches.
Every game in the offensive line was defensively.
The unit looked cooked.
The entire unit on defense was cooked by.
Jimmy Garoppolo, Kyle Shannon Plan.
I thought about your muted so I can't hear your reactions.
Michael frickin hasty with Jeff Wilson.
Brandon I yuk is a stud, by the way.
He has the same about him.
Career receiving yards as Nakheel Harry in seven fewer games.
Hold on. Really? Yes.
Harry now has a concussion.
And you know what? I'm turning on him.
You remember how I was on him? You remember when he caught that touchdown against the Chiefs and how I was going nuts? What is that what you done for me lately? Cam Newton has no confidence in him.
That's that screenshot.
That group of screenshots of cam of Nicaea breaking open wide, breaking wide open over the middle.
You saw that? Yeah.
Just didn't throw the ball.
Something happened last week waiting around that multiple times.
Cam has ignored a wide open kill Harry.
And then the very and then the very next play.
After that, when can ignored him? Third down, one on one Can't one on one coverage on the outside and ham pump fakes.
And there's just no one there.
He is blanketed by I don't even know it. Waas.
It was like a second thing was like 1/4 string dude that no one's ever heard of a Z. He can't get separation.
So he had to force it to James White under and he couldn't get the first down.
Wow, the pain there.
I have too much to say about how bad the football team the New England Patriots are.
For that, we're gonna move.
None of it is Bill Belichick's fall.
We're gonna move on because we're gonna be here on that.
Um, number 19 passed an EPA per drop back by a mile since week four.
The difference between us and the okay.
We've muted them.
We've muted them here.
It's time to move on.
Passing office has been 40.
8 expected points, every single drop back.
So if you drop back seven times, that's pretty much a touchdown.
I'm not kidding.
Okay, that that last stat is is like, we were gonna move on.
But actually, I'm glad you said that because that is an insane stuff.
We're decent on the run.
We're like, Okay, okay, okay.
We really got to move on.
That's why we're at 23 on my power rankings.
Okay, Sam, Number 19 for actually holding.
Who do you have? A 20.
Real quick Miami.
Where I have Philly.
Is this where you Is this where you have Miami? No, wait.
Did we already get me? Miami.
So is this where you have, like, the Raiders? Who do you have? The L A Chargers.
Not bad. Not bad.
Justin Herbert is a Demi God, I love it just nervous so much.
I said draft time that he could be a that he could be a great quarterback.
But there was a heavy downside of him.
You know? I bought the hype.
You bought the hype.
I didn't buy the hype, but I understood the hype, and I was just biting the tongue a little bit, you know? Yeah, I could, because I saw Michael did the same where he kind of was like, e acknowledged that this guy could be a star and he right now he's a star right now.
Justin Herbert is second to Michael Owen.
Who for offensive rookie.
I'm never Maybe James Robinson.
Well, he's the only thing that we got going for us.
And now we're gonna trade Gilmore, who's not even a top to corner anymore.
Okay, look, I've made that announcement yet.
Um l a Chargers.
They look good for a to win team telling you this team's going nine.
They are the best to win team in the NFL.
They're going nine long shot.
They are going 97 I sick going seven and three in the last 10.
What's their scheduled like? Let's pull up, pull up.
All right, Let's see what they've got.
They've got e got at Denver versus Vegas at Miami, Samp's one that could be four wins.
They could win putting up right here.
That hold on, hold on, hold on.
They could win their next for those **** look, They could win their next four.
What you wash is win, win, win, win six and four just like that.
And then they play and then they're gonna beat us because we're us.
That's a loss. That's a win.
Maybe that could be a loss.
But look at this and these guys might rest their starters hypothetically.
Right there. That's 11 and thought.
And the playoffs? Well, we got 11.
5 year in the playoffs.
E even realize that.
They say they say they lose.
Say, maybe we beat them.
Maybe may Hopefully, Actually, no.
I just I just wanna lose the Jets twice so we can get a huge game.
And we highlighted a couple weeks ago.
Graters Chargers as the next network game of the year, but it's really gonna be big is Chargers.
Dolphins? I think charges Raiders is bigger than now.
I because I don't see the Dolphins being a playoff team.
I don't either, but no.
But I don't got right now.
Therefore, and three 33.
Yes, but say there are set.
That team screams six and 10 7 and nine to me.
I agree, but they play the charger.
I mean, but they play. They play the Dolphins in two weeks.
I think the Raiders game is bigger.
Okay, I think that's fair.
I disagree, but I think it depends on how to a place.
Yeah, because we didn't even have we.
Have you said the Dolphins yet? Okay.
99 of the Eagles, by the way, number 18.
Is this where you're Miami? I have the Vegas Raiders of 18.
Go Miami to, uh, let's talk.
It's doing time.
Look, look, look, I'm not for the move, but, hey, this could This raises their ceiling.
And also he's their most talented quarterback.
It also lowers their floor.
It does, but I think that Bryan Flores is going balls out.
He's going point.
He's pushing his ships in the middle of the table he knew he would have to do it eventually because Fitzpatrick isn't gonna last forever.
Actually, he is.
He's Ryan Fitzpatrick.
He's never going to retire.
What The day he retires is going to be a sad, sad day for, like, half of the league.
I mean, logically, he's the best quarterback the Bills have had in the last 15 years.
You really slandering Andy golfing like that.
You really slandering a J McCarron like you really slandering JP La Zeman like that.
You're really gonna go out there and slander e j manual like that? Do I think, dude, who? I swear I have a vivid memory of kneeling out before Nathan Peterman.
No, no, I was purposely not saying Nathan Peterman because it wouldn't make you laugh as much because like, we know that.
But the thing with that is I vivid.
I have a vivid image in my head of e J Manual kneeling out the third quarter against us.
E don't think it happened because I looked at play by place, but I have a vivid image of it.
He was going like this that way.
I don't remember that.
I wouldn't put it I wouldn't put it past the bills, though.
If the Dolphins there, they're not a bad football team.
Emmanuel Agha has, what, six sacks? He's come out of nowhere.
No, he hasn't come out of nowhere.
If you were talking to Isaac, but yes, he's so that means yes, he's come out of nowhere, Isaac at him and be like, I don't think they're gonna make the playoffs because I sense No, no, no, no, no.
Okay, we're back.
Um, let's move on.
You took me off.
No, I just muted you because I said so.
By the way, hashtag unblocked Josh and unblock May.
That's not Frizer, by the way.
All right, Number 17 Number 17 New minal The SEC at a Las Vegas.
Yeah, This is where I have the Chargers.
Vegas stare a car.
By the way, can we dub Derek Carr the new captain Checkdown? Oh, yeah.
Like he's taken the rain from Alex Smith and Joe Flacco.
The rain from Joe Flacco filled out and Alex Smith? No, Joe Flacco is captain.
He is the check down king.
Ah, but not not not Not if you're not.
If you talk to Brady haters the only throws checked out that James White.
So double team. The Checkdown.
Logical football fence.
Yes, very logical football fans.
Derek Carr, the new captain.
He's a He's looks really good this year.
He is the new Flacco.
He's, I think, that he had a better peak than Flacco backers.
Peak was a Super Bowl.
Their cars peak was me predicting him toe winning the M v P.
Yeah, did he know? But he had a really good 2016.
Okay, e don't care.
No, like a legit like Joe Flacco.
All time great playoff run.
Yeah, but their car did that for a season.
Derek Carr had 28 6.
That's true with with a 96 passer rate.
By the way, By the way, can we talk about Derrick Carr in the last two seasons having a passer rating over 100? And both of them, Jesus really can yeah.
Can we talk about that? Ah, 100.
8 Last year, 112.
Well, last year I knew, but last year, 100.
8 it was his best season, bypassed the rating.
I disagree with that statement, though.
I think he was significantly better in 2016.
Um, man, they went what they did.
They go 12 and 4, 13 3 fun for the new Joe Flacco.
And I think that he can.
And by the way, like he's one of those guys that he's always been on the perimeter of keeping his job like, Oh, look out, this guy might lose his job.
You know that your Flacco too, though.
Yeah, I think that with their a car, But I think with their car, he's earned themselves instability.
And Nelson A Galore is great.
I never thought I'd say that again out of nowhere.
Not I don't know where he knew it was gonna happen when he left Philadelphia.
You know what's gonna happen when he left Philadelphia? That's just how the stuff works.
And that's just how this stuff works.
Okay, I did not.
And neither did use to stop it.
I mean, he's No, he's no Travis Fulgham, but yeah, no.
Fulgham is a better receiver than him.
Yes, he absolutely is.
All right. Let's move on.
Dylan is ninth in receiving grade from Pff.
a guy that a guy that last year I tweeted out.
Ashton Dylan is now a name on the Matthew Slater replacement list of Bill Belichick because he made a good special teams play number nine.
What was that? This is where I had the Panthers.
That's why I have the Panthers.
Okay, We're back on that thing.
We're back on it.
Yeah, that zone around, Eddie. Eddie.
Eddie. One in a row, Mr.
Is that tuna or three now? One, 22 But one.
I had the charges of 17.
Oh, well, then two out of last three.
No, because you have the Raiders of 17.
I had the Raiders at 18.
What do we agree on? Nothing.
We're back, though, that we're not because I don't think we're going to send 15 e.
Is, uh, Carolina, Carolina, Carolina and I Carolina.
That is what 16 is.
You're better than I thought you would be by a significant amount.
They're better than half the teams.
I thought they would be a arable.
I thought they would be like a six and 10 team have played in a lot of close games.
That could be, like three and 13 but could be like nine and seven.
But, like, wouldn't go nine and seven because they just wouldn't.
I think that's what they are, though.
But they are gonna go that night.
But they might just go that nine and seven.
Yeah, they should have.
They probably should have won that game last week.
Yeah, they really should know. Not probably.
They should have.
They just They were in field goal range in Bridgewater.
Got sacked on third down.
Yeah, they were.
They weren't a better team, but they probably could have won and should have won.
By the way, I have problems with New Orleans that we'll get to.
Oh, no, it's not.
They in New Orleans.
I said no, it's not.
Doesn't mean that the initial statement wasn't spoken.
Means that it was retracted, but it doesn't mean that it was spoken.
Speaking of retraction, this is one of the ones I changed, like three or four different things in the last.
Uh, yeah, I see that, like, this is one of those things that I changed.
Where did you have them? 15.
You wanna move on? Yeah.
I mean, I had new and I think I had New England.
Like, where did I put? I put him in 20. Right.
But e I had him in, like, 17.
At first. I'm, like, no ads.
Yeah, I had I had us of 16 last week.
19 where I had him.
You would have had them going up two spots.
Yeah, That was what I realized.
It was like, No way.
Yeah. So All right.
Number 15 fathers.
The Browns? Yep.
Yeah, that's who I thought you were gonna have.
I just had to say that I had that bears there.
Alright, Cleveland, Cleveland, up three.
No, they have ever reacted last week.
They have lost two games to two of the three best teams.
They're not a very good team, but they're not a very bad team.
They're five and two 15.
They're They're better than about half the week.
They are for five in a row.
There. A playoff team.
They're the Cleveland Browns.
are going to make the postseason.
The Cleveland Browns are going to make the postseason.
Like I would like that on the record.
They will, however, because it's the Browns.
You know, they're gonna collapse and finish nine and seven.
No, no, they will go to the playoffs.
But like that, it's because let's take a look at their schedule here, Sam.
This is why they're Yikes.
Yeah. This is why we're calling the playoffs.
They could steal one from you, though.
Very well. Good.
That's a big game against Vegas.
This is why they're going to the playoffs, though.
They'll beat Houston, they will beat Philly. They'll beat the Jags.
They lose to the Titans.
They might steal one. Then they'll beat.
And then they'll beat the New York rodeo.
And then they'll they might beat the Steelers, like in Week 16.
New York rodeo? Um, yeah.
The New York rodeo clown.
I just never heard that I like that.
Um, neither provide, I I It's called ad lib.
It's what I do all the time, Sam.
So why wait? Why did they really wanted to Tennessee twice as class.
Um but look this four.
No, against losing one and two against winning.
Well, they already beat the Colts.
No, they're too.
Losses have come against the two teams and their two to the best teams in the league.
That's what, like that is like I want to see e.
I want to see when they play Tennessee.
When they play Tennessee, that's gonna be the game.
That tells me something. No, no, no.
This is the one.
No, because I feel like the culture kind of like that.
Yeah, they are like they beat the Colts.
Alright, let's see.
They could beat the Raiders if they beat the Raiders and the Tennessee game becomes really important.
But I think they will beat the Raiders.
But you know that one yet Tennessee game is still the one that I'm looking at.
And you don't have Odell Beckham Jr anymore, which takes away all of the interest in this game, Does it? Jabrill Peppers revenge game.
Oh, nobody care.
Kevin Zettler, Revenge game offensive lineman.
Seriously, though they're not Lawrence, they're not that good, But they're gonna ride an easy schedules for, like, 11.
And no, I think trust me, they're gonna end up 97 that they're just going thio should, But they're they're just going thio.
I mean, you look at their schedule.
I can't tell you how that All right, now, do you have that bears at 14.
I do have doctors.
I have dark coats.
Okay, my little ponies on.
Uh, Carrie, let's talk about the bears to Duffy without a quarterback.
Yeah, find a quarterback, and then we can talk like, seriously, that defense is You guys are who good.
The **** you suck.
Well, they're gonna suck in the playoff, but they're probably gonna make the playoffs.
All right, All right.
But this is a good we.
That successful season for Chicago, Chicago to make the playoffs.
That's a successful season.
This is the eighth best rush defense by EPA, the eighth best past events.
And you guessed it the sixth best defense.
Same of this team makes the playoffs.
This is a This is a successful season.
I agree, because I didn't think they would make the playoffs.
I have a chance except yeah, the bears fans that got really heated on tic tac when we said that they wouldn't make the playoffs.
And by the way, I You know how you retracted that statement? I didn't.
I know they're still not impressive.
I think they are.
You work with any higher than, like, What game did they impress you in Amber Books? The Bucks that that game didn't impress me.
They didn't look good.
Their defense did.
Their offense looked like you couldn't move football.
Okay, But when? Let's reverse that.
When an offense looks good, their defense looks bad.
Most people say that's impressive.
So how is that any different? I need a complete football game.
Well, e I mean, we're not talking about the earlier in the show.
You're talking about Houston? Yeah, but we're not talking about the Houston Texans.
Who they who? They're the 26th best team in the league that they hold teams to a different standard, the better they are there.
If you're the 14 very keenly, I expect you to be able to put together a complete game of football through 26 you do good on one side of the ball.
I'm proud of you I give you a cookie and a star.
And you know what? The Houston Texans have their star and his name is Laramie.
Um, Monday, though they play the Saints that.
But I'm waiting for the Packers.
They play the same.
So I know that, Z I know, But the game that's gonna tell me everything I need to know about this team is Green Bay off there by two off, thereby against Green Bay.
Oh, that's gonna be something, isn't it? In Green Bay, But it's off thereby.
So Yeah, but no fans.
Lambeau Week 17.
They play again.
They play each other.
Could be the divisional decider.
That could be Game 2 56.
But to be honest with you, I think the Packers or the significantly better football team, I agree.
But what? The Packers show we'll get to the Packers.
All right, Number 13.
This is where I have Cleveland.
Is this where you have the colt? This is where the cold.
So, yeah, we were We seem to agree, as in, like, in general idea.
Yeah, we have the same three teams is different.
Same Four teams different, actually.
Same five teams.
Five Justin, five teams from 13 to 17.
Different order now 13 8 from 13. 18.
13 to 20 Actually, no, because I have the Eagles 19.
I mean, yeah, because I mean, that would make sense, though.
If you have the same teams 13 to 20 that's generally a tear.
Um, me indie indie.
This is a weird foreign to They're not a bad foreign to, but they're not a good foreign to I'm telling you of hydrocarbon were set there.
They might be five in one.
No, no, no, no, they're not.
Jacoby percent is no better than Philip.
He's not a Jacoby.
Brissett is not a good NFL quarterback.
At least say their foreign to then? Yes, that he is no worse but no better than Philip Rivers with Jacoby's in there, too.
Yeah, but they're two and four Jacobson, 1/5 round rookie.
That should tell you everything you need to know.
They're They're They're a weird They are the bears of the FC.
That's exactly what they are.
All right, Number 12 L A Rams.
Why is it not going? L A Rams.
Can you hear? May? Yes.
Okay, then why is this being annoying? There we go.
You know, sandwich the 40 Niners.
Can you save $40? Yeah.
Yeah, I have the 1911.
Alright. Say, I'm talking about the Niners.
It injured 40 Niners seen without their star running back.
We'll back up from the mic.
That's it. That's a stretch.
That's a stretch of stars without their superstar defensive lineman without their to starting safety.
Backed us in the purple.
This was a gong show.
They marched in the Gillette and basic they didn't even if they didn't even look particularly good.
We just looked that bad.
I I was not impressed by the $40 this week, To be honest with you, they won 33 or six moved up one spot that should tell you all you need to know.
33 61 They didn't allow a touchdown on either to the Patriots against the Broncos.
Neither the bill neither did the Jets against the Bills, but they scored 33 points.
They were up 23 to 3 at halftime at Gillette Actual.
That patriots haven't lost by 27 at home since 1998.
My Patriots history, my Patriots game by game goes back to 2000 and 12.
My Patriots, couple weeks by couple weeks goes back to 2000 and one.
I could tell you almost nothing about the 98 team aside from Bledsoe, and we didn't have Curtis Martin and Robert Edwards was the starting running back when we had Terry Glenn and he was decent and we had McGinest and guys.
But I don't know much at all about the 90 18.
And that's the last time we lost by 27 at home.
Foxboro Stadium, Foxboro stating, By the way, No.
Brandon, I use a stud.
This guy is better than a culinary by a lot.
Yeah, killing big.
I can't believe we didn't take this guy.
Every time we play one of these rookies when we play, you guys are gonna say, I can't believe we didn't take Patrick Queen.
Okay, Don't don't Don't smile like that.
When? When we I still can't believe we didn't trade up for Justin Jefferson, though also I if I were in that war room, I would have traded up with the Eagles for Justin Jefferson.
Yeah, because look, it's clear that the it's clear that we knew the action.
I would've traded up to 20.
Who was 22? Jags? Klavan. Jason.
He looked all right.
Yeah, look better than Akeem Davis.
Gaylor, San Francisco.
You're not very good, but you're not very bad.
Good. They're good.
I don't think there that very.
They're not very. They're making that. They might make the playoffs.
They might make the playoffs, Their schedules just so hard.
It's brutal, but they could make it. It's brutal.
Way were sitting here two weeks ago saying, this team had you were sitting here two weeks ago, saying, This seems not gonna make the postseason.
Now they therefore, and three, right.
Therefore, on three, they just beat the Rams and the Patriots back to back weeks on national television.
Well, unless you unless you share for, like, the Chiefs or something, and arranged now you got Seattle, a Seattle coming off a loss and then Green Bay Seattle drop.
By the way, Seattle drops far for May.
You'll see interesting.
They just dropped.
They dropped far. It's more because I wanted to replenish the top.
I got the Niners.
You got the Rams? Oh, they only move up one for the reason of they don't really have a deal.
No, For the reason that I felt that this is the range where they belong.
And I've had them here already.
They move up a lot of people power because they weren't here on the A lot of people Power rings.
They've been in this range all year for me, so I have had them there, too.
And I have them ahead of this.
You'll see where I have them.
I can't yet because there's I can I can.
It's still little young Children experience of my God.
Yeah, but it's not about that.
It's about how good they've looked.
And they just beat the team that I thought was winning the Super Bowl in their house.
I thought, Well, I'm not sure about it.
Yeah, I'm not sure.
I'm honestly not sure if there have been coming out of the NFC.
Ooh, they're not my highest ranked NFC team.
They're my, um now Arizona Kyla.
Murray is a superstar.
Okay, okay, let's get that on record.
I wanted to make that clear.
He is a superstar.
You know what? He's in the top 10.
Now he's like Number nine, Number 10.
But he's like like let's like Let's do that right now.
Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson, Rogers.
I'm not going any order, but yeah, I'm not for Watson.
Brady Tannehill Allen Murray was breathing there.
Breezes right after Murray Breeze is probably number 10 Now Put breeze Adam.
Maybe give it Thio.
Ben DeNucci I'm not sure, but Ben DeNucci is now a trace.
McSorley on tick Tock.
Yeah, now that video is that Caught me so off guard, though I heard the e Bend it's in your chief E.
It was like this flute music, and I would e.
I loved it so much he's gonna he's gonna get exposed this week by an intern.
Eagles TV's gonna throw like seven picks.
By the way, RG three didn't participate.
Yeah, so that means America's favorite well, is he still America's favorite first type to die? He actually might be active this week.
No, I don't think it's dying.
It's just that Ben DeNucci hype is now a thing.
They went into the Jerry world and basically made the and basically turned the cowboys in the Bronte.
James is they? LeBron The belt belted them mhm, but And then they got.
Metcalf chased through the baker down like he was LeBron was those means, man, the Internet is undefeated.
Can Baker is a stud.
Is he top five? Yeah.
Um, I think Jamal Adams, you might even top three.
Justine Simons, Buddha Baker.
Unless I'm forgetting someone and I'm not.
And it's not making forgetting some.
I just can't tell you who it's not make of its Patrick.
Yeah, it's not, um, tired.
Tire Matthew four.
Sorry. Tired. Matthew three.
Harrison Smith, too.
I forgot about All right.
So Buddha Baker's number five and and Justin Simmons three.
Hey, you know his number six Jesse Bates? Yes, absolutely.
Number seven mink of its Patrick.
Yeah, I was way too high, Minka.
Yeah, let's move on.
Here do number 10.
This is the L A. Rams.
This is where I have the saints.
I think that Michael Thomas might be costing them a playoff spot.
This is the NFC man.
We could get to the Rams first.
Um, five and two.
Are they actually five and two now? If only someone said that their ceiling was super high.
I'm gonna milk this thing all year.
But you didn't say five.
And what was your record collection for them? I have them seven and nine, but I had them with a super.
But I said they have a really high ceiling.
But you didn't like No, but I was on them saying they certainly could win 12 games.
Okay, you did a different kind.
Like I said, I wouldn't be surprised if they win 12 games.
I'll tell you that.
I would be surprised if they won less than I'm giving away a pick.
Right now. They're beating Miami.
Think they might destroy Miami this week.
Aaron Donald will sack to ah, three times.
Maybe not here, but they will sack to a gets three sacks this week.
He's gonna break the sack record.
They will sack to a five times now.
Aaron Donald's on pace.
*** has nine secs.
The team will sack to a five times Aaron.
Donald will have at least one Aaron Donald might be the one to break the sack record, not miles get.
And he's an interior.
What? Did you see this thing? Pop up, Aaron.
Donald is not very good against the run.
Did you see that? Yeah.
That might be the biggest e.
Almost ridiculous thing ever.
Yeah, I saw it in just one.
I read what he was saying.
Oh, sometimes he over pursues the quarterback.
Yeah, that's what makes him so good against the past.
He's not supposed to know that. It's a run play.
He's just gonna burst through the line.
All right, Number nine.
I got Buffalo, Samir.
So you have the sense above them.
Yeah, I have the cardinals above them.
I have not lost any faith in Buffalo.
I'll make that clear.
I didn't They Examples of power rankings done where? Power rankings number nine.
I still think they could be a top five team, and I agree with that.
But they've just lost two out of three, and they Yeah, and they beat the New York rodeo call right now, they do not look like a top five team.
They are, but they do not.
I think they can be.
I think the Steelers were better than like, remember when I remember when I had the Steelers above them before everyone else did.
I would like I would like my thank you on that.
I didn't call you out on it.
Michael did hard.
I didn't I said I was with you on that.
I said, Pittsburgh's amazing.
Well, gets Pittsburgh.
I spent the last month until this week because no one thought they'd be Yeah, in the last month telling people how good there gushing over them.
I mean, I I can gush over that team as well when their third receiver, but their third receiver absolutely annoys me.
Okay, we'll move.
We have to talk about the Bills, though They couldn't move the ball against the Jets.
Josh Allen's worrying.
You know, I agree.
Josh Allen had a couple oof moments like really bad.
He's turning back into that 20 19.
I don't like what I'm saying right now. I'm seeing regression.
I told everyone he's supposed to be progressing and he's regressing.
I told everyone after a week four that it was not gonna hold up.
I didn't think it would be this bad.
Now again, I I think he'll bounce back.
I think he'll be, so he'll bounce back.
But remember, it's not been three games since they've scored 20 points.
It's not even a lot.
Not this Sierra doesn't.
I mean, I'm obviously a Patriots finished and be talking.
We haven't scored 26 Week three, but still three games for both the Patriots and the bills.
This if the Patriots want any chance we have toe win.
You guys pay the bills this week. Yes.
Ooh, If we fall to two and five and they're six and two, the divisional races over Miami is still on it.
No, they're not. They're gonna lose.
They're gonna fall to three.
Tried for fraud.
They play, they play like no.
All right, let's move on. Number eight.
Number eight cent, etc.
Remember when we were just like in complete agreement? They were just like they just felt like the number nine team.
Yeah, I think I kept them at nine for like, two weeks after that? Yeah, just for the sake of it.
And you know what? I moved him up to number five last week and they depressed us.
And No, no, this is this is where they belong.
This is what we've been saying all year.
We said it to be near this.
Procreate ranking in the entire league.
I bought it, though.
I bought it, but we shouldn't have their bill buying Tannehill for M V p.
No BP, but yeah.
Russell Wilson, the M V P.
But Ryan Dan has a top five.
Ryan Dan was a top seven NFL quarterback.
Imagine telling that someone in 2019.
Yeah, a man Miami miracle on your score in Jersey.
What? That you're scorning Nice.
Yeah, well, it also also a very um, so you have you hold him in very high regards.
I just don't know your best running back in football.
Yes, yes, but it doesn't matter.
It's a running back for him.
Yeah, but what? What What's he worth in a contract, though? Well, I already got paid, but I I feel like he got paid.
Like I swear he got No, we did.
But how much would you pay him? I wouldn't pay him more than the other running back, but still, not a lot.
I had someone tell me that they'd give him quarterback money.
And I said to them What? Listen, you're talking about if you're gonna get a quarterback money of him, but still No, no, you're not.
If you're giving any running back quarterback money, it's a guy that you you're not giving the ball 380 times a year because that dude's gonna break down into tire tread within two weeks.
Yeah, You said that about in the Syria hasn't It's gonna happen.
It's gonna happen.
And they're gonna one in the first round.
But when eventually we'll see.
I don't necessarily disagree, but it hasn't happened yet.
Tannehill is gonna carry this team.
Yeah, he's incredible.
Brown Michael Waas, right? Yeah, he's insanely good.
I'm not ready to go that far, but I am.
Michael said he was number 12 before the season.
You said you're not willing to go that far.
No, I mean, like, he was right in terms of is good, but yeah, you're right.
I'm not not going well, you good.
Okay, give me 16. Now.
We'll see what we'll see by the end of the season.
Yeah, we'll see.
Number seven I have from the Great State of Arizona.
Wow, They impressed. May.
This is why I have New Orleans.
And this is an interesting to hear what you think about them.
Michael Thomas could be costing them a playoff spot.
Well, let's take a look at the start of macho head games right now.
Whatever he's doing, I don't like it.
The best receiver in the NFL, he's off the field and the whole altercation a couple weeks ago.
And now whatever this is going, whatever is going on here, they almost lose.
They should have lost to the Panthers.
This is a weak foreign to when do you think he will be back? That's the thing.
I don't know if he wants to.
He could play this week, but then again, he might not be back The rest of the season.
It's gonna be a Kawhi Leonard thing.
Yeah, you're right.
That's a good call.
I've literally been saying that since the altercation.
Michael has to Yes, because he's right.
Like, Wait, Michael being right.
He's on a roll right now.
By the way, Merkel is on rolling.
Um, but But look, they could They could very well lose the next three games.
They also could win.
Yes, they could be four in five.
And they also could lose this game, by the way.
They won't. Atlanta Always.
You're right, you're right.
They could be four and five, though.
They could be four or five in the tough NFC giving wins to three other teams in the playoff hunt.
I put it this way.
No, I'm going back right now.
They're either losing here or there. Losing here.
They're losing one of the Atlanta Games.
No, I think they either lose to Atlanta.
I completely forgot.
There was a Christmas game this year on Friday.
I mean, here is a staff of three and winning us losing.
They've only played a winning team twice this year.
Yeah, All right. Let on.
I just don't like.
I just don't like where this is going.
Okay? What am I watching right now? What is this on ESPN E? I don't know.
What are you watching? I have no idea.
Is this like a really long, annoying ad about a surfer? Or is this a weird surfing show? E 60? It could be.
All right, Let's move on to number 70 it's fire on the mountain number.
And ESPN two is showing Super Bowl 46 highlights.
So that's a no, um, number six.
Ironic number six.
This is where I have the Seattle Seahawks.
I didn't think they disappointed.
They didn't disappoint me that much.
All right, you you have Tampa.
You have Green Bay.
Tampa, you finally crack my top.
I've been Tampa's biggest critics since day one. Not anymore.
You know what? I was the same way, but we'll get to Green Bay.
I was I was not convinced about Tom Brady going, and we'll get to them.
We'll get to them. Green Bay.
Aaron Rodgers is still a bad man.
I love Aaron Rodgers Tuesdays.
I just think he's great.
Aaron Rodgers, Tuesdays, are amazing.
Aaron Rodgers has become one of the most likable players in the league for May.
Because of those interviews, Um, I could see that I could.
I could buy that, though.
He's such a likable guy.
And I was like, the like, That mustache is so ugly.
Um, like I'd rather see Tom Brady girl mustache off course, you would know.
And you have no idea how ugly he would look with a mustache.
Alright, cream back.
I love the way this team plays, though.
I do too milk Fuller rumors.
By the way, Will Fuller could be Aaron Rodgers, new James Jones.
I think that he is a different Jane.
I think he's different.
I I think he's got more talent.
Things got more raw talent.
But I'll have similar production.
Yeah, but Devante is top three.
Davante Adams is a top three wide receiver in the National Football League.
He is better than Julio Jones.
Yeah, yes, and he's better than Mike Evans and Michael.
He's better than your boy Antonio Brown.
He is better than Adam feeling Keenan Allen, who hates Madden.
We should have mentioned that with the Chargers man.
Bonus points Too keen.
And I mean getting the new Xbox.
I'm not gonna buy the new man it on there.
I mean, why would you want Madden on the on the on the next Gen Don't you already have it on the current, Gen? Yeah.
What's the point? You don't until I know Ideo until I hear that it's upgrade.
I'm not gonna buy mad. Never.
Yeah, our decision.
But number six, the Packers I love I love what? Leffler What LaFleur is doing with this team, though I really enjoy watching the Packers play.
They do need peace.
They need a receiver linebacker.
Now, If only they drafted one.
If only they drafted one when they traded up.
If Onley they traded up what he's only they traded up from 30 instead of 26 to 20 and took Justin Jefferson.
Or maybe they could have taken Mims, who had a good look.
You had a good debut this week.
Yeah, all right.
School number, thistles, green bag.
And that's his Tampa. And I'm going single.
I I have a lot to say about this team as well.
I just wanna go real quick.
I need to make a quick statement about their defense.
Tampa Todd Bowles.
You guys **** good.
You guys have a **** good defense.
Not only having above average defense, which I said they didn't at first.
At the beginning of season, I said they have a below average defense.
Not only is that wrong about that, they have a top 10 demons.
They might have a top five d.
They have a top to defense.
And so far this season, it is not Thio.
No, that's not true.
But so far this season, their defense is top two.
And it has not been too By e p a per play, they have been Barn on the best point.
123 2nd place negative zero negative 00.
9 I'll tell you this, though.
I will stop safer now top five.
I'm going to for that.
But I will say that the top They are top one right now, but I don't think they're better than the Steelers in talent wise.
And I don't think they're better than the Bears.
Talent Waas That's it That's literally it.
They're They're the third best defense in the NFL.
You know why? I give them all that credit, though.
And there's one guy who is really flying under the radar on that.
Defects. And who needs deserves some props here.
Mel Dean know Devon White? Yes.
Thank you. Devon White is the beast.
Devon White is a Jen, and White is the second highest.
I've graded an inside linebacker.
He is on Lee Rock.
Juan Smith was higher.
He is **** good. And also rock.
Juan Smith is a monster.
Yeah, e there was this one play at L s.
U was in the Florida game.
Devin White is an amazing pass rusher for a middle linebacker.
Did you see they they like toe, line him up on the on the edge and put Barrett in the middle.
I didn't even notice that Todd Bowles was winning me over as a D C Todd Bulls.
The Jets gotta? Well, no, because he's not a good head coach.
If he was the head coach of a team right now, he would not be anybody competent non offensive coordinator, and have him just literally run the defense.
The GM is well, too.
He's not Belichick, sure, but he's running a Belichick E and defense.
He's gonna make Martingale defense as well.
He's running a defense.
He's running a defense.
That is dynamic good playmakers.
We we were sold on their run defense coming up season.
I said I was not sold on their defense.
I I said, When I see it, it was the same thing with it was the same thing with Tom Brady.
When I see it, I'll say it last couple of weeks.
I've seen it until they have been the best events, the NFL this season.
I cannot go that far and say best, But I will say that I will say I will.
And I think they are the third best defense talent wise.
There was this one play in the Florida game when he was at L. S. U.
It just caught my eye.
I can't describe it, but he came from across the field and made in a cross body tackle and it just stuck with me.
I'll send it to you.
Interesting post, actually posted online, by the way, actually brings a random, really random thing.
I remember Jack del Rio when he was our linebackers coach in Baltimore with Ray Lewis.
Uh, by the way, Ravens, um, early two thousands coaching staff.
I don't really know if you know how good that coaching staff WAAS.
Yes, I think the Buck Stevens is better than the Ravens.
You have a job, but the Ravens air number four.
Um, well, I used to say about this.
I'm real quick with story about Ray Lewis.
Um, first of all, defensive coaching staff that while I'll look at it At one point, we had Marvin Lewis, Rex Ryan, Chuck Pagano, Jack Del Rio on Brian Billick.
That was on our coaching staff at the same.
You know, You know who we once had our coaching staff all at once? Bill Belichick? Yeah.
Um, just Bill Belichick and everybody.
Bill Mike Smith, the old Falcons coach.
Bill Belichick could take me and make me into an NFL coordinator somewhere.
Seriously, Mike Smith, also that old Falcons coach.
I remember him. Yeah.
Anyway, um, Jack reminded me of Jim Caldwell.
I have no idea. No idea why.
Um, but Jackie, we used to go Pff.
He used to grade guys 1 to 100 all of the linebackers, and he did it.
He still doesn't this day when his head coach, you know, the whole team on that bum.
He said The only time he said Ray Lewis had a perfect game, you know, 100 grade.
And he goes, No, he never 100.
I had to watch the film twice and he called him flow stepping.
I got him E 99 9.
I don't think PFS never given 100 for a game.
No, and they never will.
That was his point.
No, they eventually football will be a thing for hundreds more years.
Unless concussion, Stake it out and Pff will eventually give 100.
And I guarantee you, it's to a cryogenically frozen.
Tom Brady s all right.
I have the bucks at number four.
The Bucks right now are my best team in the NFC.
This is my best team that I've seen the Seattle Seahawks, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Right now, if you ask me right now, who's going to win the Super Bowl? It's very he's going to come out of the NFC, if you ask me right now, this is subject to change.
But right now, the Bucks air coming out of the NFC Ooh, I'm not coming out with the Lombardi or No, not sure, but I've seen that look in his eye.
I've seen it before.
I've seen this movie before.
He ain't losing okay and losing. Interesting.
He wants it bad.
He there was this throw that he had to Scotty Miller like before.
We before we talk about can we pull up the clip? No, because I don't have to clip out of that, but I can pull it up. Okay, fine.
But before we talk about how good of a deep ball Russell Wilson throws, Tom Brady threw the prettiest deep bottle.
Aside from the Tom Brady aside from Russell Wilson through the prettiest deep ball in the NFL this season.
Oh, yeah, And it was that throw to Scotty Miller.
I think it traveled 58 air yards, which is his longest throat since 2017.
Back corner of the end.
It was a 33 yard touchdown boats in the back corner.
It was a top, and it was to a white slot receiver named Scotty Miller, who I honestly had never heard of before.
All right, well, no, that's exactly Seattle.
Russell Wilson, E.
I don't want to make a ***ual reference here, but you're deep Balls are very pretty. Yeah.
Um, that's got the rest of his team.
I don't know about this defense.
When you come back, you really need to be.
Carlos Dunlap was a huge move.
Is he still what? He he still 2019? Carlos Dunlap? That was last year.
But it's the NFL, I know, but he want Lamar Jackson was the unanimous M v p last year, and now I think he really needs Well, I'll talk about that.
Yeah, all right.
Seattle this defense.
Step up, Seattle.
Your defense is costing the Super Bowl.
And by the way, I still think that Seattle, probably at the end of the day, will come out with the Lombardi.
But if you ask me right now, they're not coming out of the NFC.
Yeah, and I can't decide between the three other teams.
Number three, we have the same top three.
The question is, what's the order.
Baltimore number three Baltimore.
Okay, Lamar, step it up.
It's after the bye week.
You need You need to step it up.
I know you're in the Ravens fan, but I got stuff to say.
I'm interested here.
Okay? I look great, but I wanna hear what you say.
Lamar Jackson was last season.
The best player in the NFL.
You won the unanimous M v p.
Well, he won the M v p. Unanimously.
The M V P is not a unanimous award.
I feel like we need to get that off our chest.
Unanimous M v p. One m v p. Unanimously.
Lamar Jackson, He told Lamar Jackson has not been a top 10 quarterback this year.
He has been good.
We you need him to be elite.
I'll be right back.
Well, I'm not gonna be here in the next couple minutes.
I'll be right back. Keep talking.
Not minutes. Sorry.
Like, that's what I thought.
What the The Baltimore Ravens constructed their roster to win the Super Bowl this year? Lamar Jackson is supposed to be a top three quarterback in the National Football League and he has not been a top 10 quarterback this year.
He has been good, His running has been inconsistent, his throwing has been inconsistent and the weapons are not stepping up for him.
I don't think that it's e don't think that is 100% on him.
This defense for the Ravens is legit.
It is a top four defense in the NFL.
But as I said, I don't trust the way this team has looked.
I know Josh is saying It's really good that we're not that they're not looking like the best team in the NFL right now, But that's the thing they're supposed to be.
The best team in the NFL last year were not what Not in October, No, but like you get my No.
But like okay, last year you weren't supposed to be.
That's team in the league, and you were in October.
I am concerned because they're not.
They're not looking close to what they looked like last year.
They're five and one, but this is what you're saying about the team that you like.
This is what I'm saying about the team that I'm not sure about their five and one, and they haven't impressed me.
If they do impress me, they could.
If they do impress me, the concern will be gone.
But they haven't impressed me.
Here's when I see it.
I'll say it, and I haven't seen it yet.
This is the week to show.
By the way, yes, you play the Steelers, who we both are gonna have to.
We both have above the Ravens, even though we both had the Ravens making the Super Bowl in winning the division.
I have them 14 to let me tell you right now, I think we're still winning the division.
I think you still prominently right now.
Third, I have a concern.
I have concerns.
Uh, there are war for me.
There are significantly more question marks with the Ravens than the Bucks, aside from the obvious one, which is Antonio Brown right now.
Now here's my problem with what you're saying about Lamar is Lamar.
To me, unlike last year, looks like a quarterback who last year Lamar Jackson, to me look like a quarterback who will be very good for seven years.
And then he's done this year.
Lamar Jackson actually looks like a guy who can play 15 years.
But what do you want? Do you want a quarterback that's gonna be decent for 15 years? Or do you want No, no.
Or do you want the quarterback is going toe win you the Super Bowl? But you're not.
You're not understand what I'm saying? I do understand exactly what you're saying.
You're saying you'd be a very good quarterback in the league for 15 years, but But he's not looked like the same quarterback from last year, and he looks like a better quarterback last year, and I'm not concerned about how long he's gonna play.
I'm concerned about if he's going to win the Super Bowl this year, that's fair.
But to me, what I like is that for the first time playing the long game with him because you're gonna have to lock him up and you're not gonna be able to bring back your best player again again, you're not letting me let me finish here, okay? This tea is a complete football team.
It is which is not arguable.
It's a very complete team.
What Lamar Jackson does for the first time in his career, is actually going through his progressions.
He never did that last year.
Last year, what he did was look his first progression.
If it was open, he threw it.
If it wasn't he ran. That was his. I was playbook.
You're essentially the Ravens.
Play asking place was, There's your target.
If he's open, pass it.
If he's not run, that was.
That won him the M V p a time eliminated in the first round because it was too simple.
But play like that right now.
Why? Because it's winning.
Because it because it was the better, because it one you football games in a more convincing way.
Sam were five and one.
Yeah, but at this point last year, you were born to, but you looked a lot better.
I thought I mean, I know you had you had you look more convincing in your winds, I think.
What were your winds? It was Seattle.
I think Seattle's They're only really good wind up at this point.
No, but like your first two games of the season were like holy.
But Miami was Miami.
I know, but it was like a holy wow.
They haven't had a holy wow Cleveland.
No, they look good in that game.
They didn't look like a wow they did.
They don't look like the Super Bowl.
Chris E don't want them to. Right now.
It's a marathon.
They're expected to be that the Why shouldn't they be? There's nothing wrong with being the best team in the NFL in October when you're expected to be.
I understand that, but I just all right, number two.
I wanna just make us one last point here is that I think this defense.
So why we need to move out of that? Because the offenses the offense.
This team has won two Super Bowls because of their defense.
Yes, this team has won two Super one Super Bowl solely because their defense and once you roll, mainly because their defense and partly because their quarterback played really well.
The Ravens, for no reason the worst offense in NFL history won a Super Bowl.
The 2000 ribbons? Absolutely, absolutely, Anderson.
They were the worst offense to everyone that was like the Jets.
So that was like the Patriots offense this year.
They were terrible.
They They had a four game stretch with zero touchdowns.
And they freaking like one.
Those games And they went three and one. Yeah.
I mean, we mentioned 99.
What was that that year? No, it was like, 03 was that theory was on Madden, You know, bad No.
Four with Michael Vick, then? E think it was our three, though.
Yeah, but But the point with this.
What is it? Yeah, yeah.
What I like about this defense is what Wink Martindale does If he has everybody fresh.
I say it all the time of the Ravens.
If you are not in active, you're getting a snap.
And the Ravens bringing Janek and go quick.
What they have leaned on so heavily I also blitz.
It's the 78 man blitz which works against every team except for one Kansas City.
And you know what? Now that we actually have not one but two competent pass rushers Well, the second one hasn't looks very good this year.
But that brings us to an Goku.
Will make Jude on better.
Bingo! And now that we have two guys on the edge with Kelly's Campbell, also on the interior, who is coming off a three sack game, by the way from the interior right and partly off the edge, right? He's versatile, right? And act.
Voice is deeper than the and his voice is deeper than Marianas Trench.
Yeah, yeah, God, I'm really happy he's here now.
The point, though, is now that we have guys get on the edge, we don't have to send those huge blitzes.
Send five or six and not seven or eight.
We can actually drop guys back in coverage and use the Sean Elliott and Chuck Clark like coverage safeties.
And you can also maybe take pressure off of Anthony Average, right? Exactly.
And that might be the thing that might have just gotten you the most excited in the world.
Right? And you know who else Jimmy Smith? Really, by the way, people, you need corner death, by the way.
Jimmy, you're right.
Jimmy Smith has to give you this season.
Yeah, he's been great.
This has been Jimmy's best year, And can I make my announcement? By the way, Yeah.
Mile and Humphrey is the best cornerback in the National Football League.
Troy Davis White is number two.
Stefan Gilmore is number three.
Stefan Gilmore sucks this year.
Yeah, Yeah, you're right.
Not as bad as Cam Newton.
Yeah, No, but that's kind of my point.
Here is this defense is going to step up, but the wine fences looking 18.
Not to mention when you need it, you have the second i e was about to say it.
You have the best kicker in the NFL were the best kicker in the 2nd.
2nd best powder? Yeah, like I have.
I'm telling you.
Remember when remember for years and the Raiders had Janikowski and Lechler.
90 seven's in Madden.
Both of them, right? Like every year.
Why don't think if kickers and punters 90 seven's anymore Man Tucker should.
Tucker needs to be in the 99 Club, by the way.
Like he's got like he's got to do it once.
Him and Slater like they need Thio and Hecker and Hecker.
All right, now let's move on.
Number two in my power rankings out of Pittsburgh Steelers.
Yeah, okay, let's let's let okay talk.
They're number two.
I've helped him up all year.
If they beat the Ravens, they are number one.
If they beat number one, I'm gonna go even further.
If they beat the Ravens, they might win the Super Bowl.
I think that if they beat the Ravens, they will be the Super Bowl favorites.
Oh, that is so good about that.
I think they might win a alright.
If they beat us this week, I'll say they're probably best T.
I mean, they'll be number one next to the beat us.
But I'll tell you this right now, if they sweep us, they'll be my Super Bowl pick.
I won't go this far because I need to see what the Bucks look like and what the Chiefs look like.
I don't think the Chiefs are going to pull this year.
I've told us in the beginning, there not wanting to this year.
I think I need to see what they look like, because I will not.
I will never count that man out.
Yeah, but I mean, the thing is, you don't know if I'm talking about Patrick Mahomes or Andy Reid.
And that's the part.
No, I need on my mom's? No.
But like I could talk me talking about Andy Reid.
He's had one good playoff. One.
No, but like he's also a big, smart genius.
Sure, Um, but Mike Tomlin, often ingenious Mike Tom has been turned around.
My Tom Steve has turned around.
They missed the playoffs two years ago.
It ain't Ravens.
They kept their.
They kept their major defensive piece in TJ Watt.
They developed him, man.
Develop him. He just got better.
Cam Heyward came Hayden Hayden, who's not playing very well.
Make a Fitzpatrick is a good player.
It was very good.
Deontay Johnson's very good.
Deontay Johnson's their best receiver, Chase Claypool's their second judges.
Schuster's their third.
And you know what? I'd rather be five, and I'd rather be 60 with two points than two and four with 25 points.
I love and that.
And you know what? That's the first thing that that man has said that I like.
He is not good angry.
Um, I'll tell you this, though.
Okay? As good as I think they are, as legit as I think they are.
As much as I have them up.
I still need to see more from their offense.
I need to see by the way, I need to see it from Big Ben.
The only reason I need to see.
Oh, I need to see Big Ben throw the football in a way that looks right, right? Ben has not been very good this year.
Nothing bad by no means back.
He's been good enough.
But that's a That's not good enough to win a Super Bowl, though, right? This is what, though this comes back to the big quote that I've had over the last two years off how the league has never been more wide open where? I mean, I can't tell.
I mean, obviously, I think it's the Ravens during the reign of that team.
But like, But look at this. Let's look at this.
If I told you that the Saints would win a Super Bowl, you wouldn't be.
You wouldn't say what? Yeah, and they're my number 10 team, right? If I told you, I told you, the Rams, we're gonna win the Super Wolf right now.
Would you be like my five? Wow.
Because they like you couldn't make an argument for.
Been like I definitely would've been surprised, but I wouldn't have been like, No, I wouldn't say they're gonna I'm not gonna say they're gonna win the Super Bowl.
I know what you're saying.
They could this that the Los Angeles Rams could win the Super Bowl.
Right? I think that statement kind of surprises San Francisco 40.
Niners can win the Super Bowl again.
Statements of that.
Hell, I'm gonna say it.
The Cleveland Browns, if everything works, can win a Super Bowl.
I don't agree with that.
I think that I don't think I tell you that.
I just don't have it in him.
I think that if it works, they can.
I don't think they're feeling is high there.
Ceiling is very high.
Panza City Touchdown Kansas City.
Not much to say.
Yeah, they're the Kansas City keeps the best team in the league.
There is not much to say about this team besides the fact that there are back to the championship game.
It's a question on if they want it or not.
Yeah, and it's also a question not It's also a question of who they play.
By the way, you kept saying, Oh, the Bills or that team that can spoil Ravens, Chiefs, Ravens The Chiefs are not the two best teams.
The FC according to you, No, not too, but they're not the best teams in October.
Yeah, but to be honest with you, I could see the Chiefs, the Steelers, the Ravens.
I could see the Titans and I could see the Bills.
And I could see the Browns in the NFC championship game.
Not Cleveland, but are not yet.
I can see the Browns.
Okay, I'm higher on the Browns and you solely because I just think that they if everything is going right, if they still had Odell, I wouldn't be as brutal as I am on.
I don't know if Hotel is that.
I don't know if Odell is that big of a difference maker on that team is not.
Yeah, but not on this team.
And that's the point.
But like, that's the thing.
The Chiefs might not even make the A C championship game.
Yeah, that's how competitive the A F C is e l is right now.
And, yeah, the NFC is well, it's so competitive.
We talked about how the Saints they need toe win.
Who were these next three games? Yeah, if they don't they fall toe five and four in a super competitive NFC giving winds toe two of the three teams that they're chasing.
Remember? Because at the end of the day, the power rankings don't determine who's making the playoffs.
Right? 2008 Patriots would have been in the top 12.
They didn't make the playoffs.
They weren't They weren't in the 12.
Same with your seven Browns.
Derek Andersen somehow let a temple that just Okay, okay, Okay.
Let's talk about the Pro Bowl and how Mitchell's Robiskie once made it.
He was an alternate.
All right, way got to wrap up here.
We leave you with my background for the week.
This is my background for the week.
It just feels so weird seeing Ray Lewis, who feels like a bygone of another era by now.
And Ben Roethlisberger, who is still playing on, has that big beard.
That man I wish he was still I wish we still had that for the games.
Yeah, that'd be so sick.
That was fun, though.
I'm telling you, these episodes are better than when you do it without me.
What? These episodes are better than the ones that you do with Michael.
No, they're very different.
Me and Michael and you, me and Michael and me.
And you have very different conversations.
Very different chemistry.
Equally is good, but completely different.
What would you say is the difference? A lot less debate between me and you know, But, like, I will bring something up and I will bring up.
I'm I'm able to say something crazy and make it and make you agree.
Because you really do agree.
You just don't realize it right with Michael.
I just don't agree.
Yeah, but yet, Michael, what he could do is he couldn't give me solid argument, Is just that Michael Michael is not a bad argument.
Michael should do debate.
Anyway, let's sign off here.
John Grammar, Sam, Fireman, Josh Gordon, Michael Jordan on and
