Um, So as we start here, we've got some some breaking news.
We have, um, the 40 Niners closing their facility after multiple injuries, but closing their facility due to Kobe. 19.
Uh, they're supposed to play Thursday night, actually, against my Green Bay Packers Packers looking for a rebound, winning so or the 40 Niners.
But they're supposed to host on Thursday.
Not there's no set number.
How many positive tests there were, but, um, there were positive tests, and that's the big important news um, regarding the 40 Niners and their facility.
Diego Mark Donna's brain surgery was successful.
He was hurt very, very badly in practice.
His surgery was successful, though, And our Sorry, this is this'll is a legend.
His surgery was successful.
Um, the young man who got hurt in a college practice, um, was rushed to the hospital.
He was he was falling out with the helicopter, rushed to the hospital.
He was not moving.
And I will get you all the latest on him, but, um, let's go, Jimmy Garoppolo new injury, that is That's also news Jimmy Garoppolo is going to miss the next few weeks.
And that is because of a new injury.
Not anything that had happened before with the ankle or anything else.
Um, him and Deebo.
Samuel, as well as George Skittle will all miss Thursday night game, assuming it still happens because of, um, this covert outbreak in the 40 Niners facility, which again is not good.
Um, Tennessee Titans released Victor Li's Lee Jr.
He will be released today.
Um, he was signed to just under 10 million and $9.
5 million contract.
Um, this march he only played 24% of this defensive snaps this season, has three tackles and forced fumble.
Um, he debuted in Week three against the Titans, and Antonio Brown is expected to make his debut this week against the Saints.
So we will see if the Saints can stand up to that and also how Antonio Brown looks in the Buccaneers jersey.
And I don't mean just, um, regarding his his personal appearance.
The trade deadline just passed and my Packers did not not make any moves whatsoever.
Um, so let's go through some trades that went through Avery Williamson got traded from the Jets to the Steelers.
Um, he he is their second best linebacker.
Mosley is considered their best, but he is a very, very good linebacker.
Um, and he is now on one of the best, if not the best defense in the NFL.
Um, and and the things are are looking up for him.
Um, sorry about that.
DaMarcus Thomas was the person who was airlifted to the hospital from Old Miss Um, he waas.
He was unmoving, and it looks like he will He will look to make a speedy recovery, although there is? No, Um, there's no official word on him yet, as Lane Kiffin is probably trying to protect his his tight end.
Uh, the Ravens got unique Ndukwe.
They they There was a little bit before the deadline trade deadline, but that was a big trade for them.
I covered that on this show.
Carlos Dunlap one from the Bangles to the Seahawks.
Um, he's no, he's not Prime Carlos Dunlap getting 10 11 sacks a year.
But hey is a viable pass rusher for Seahawks defense that, frankly, needs a pass rusher needs a bed.
Yes, they did not trade for a receiver and the Texans, who looked like they wanted they were going to.
They were in talks with the Packers for Kenny Stills or Will Fuller did not make a move for any of them, and they are not having a good season.
They're looking to have an early draft pick and restart with the Shawn Watson as their guy.
Um, other news stuff on Gilmore did not get traded, but the Patriots did make a move.
They traded for Isaiah Ford from the Dolphins, and you know what? The Patriots really need receivers.
So even this is is something that I mean be They need all the help they can get, especially on the offensive playmaking side of the ball with Cam Newton not being that guy is gonna throw guys open and man coverage.
Um, so let's go to some S H power rankings real quick.
Sean rank all 32 teams.
I just went to the halfway mark.
I did my top 16, um, Shawn's power rankings.
I will break those down for you.
He also made tears for them, so he is worst of the worst.
Here is the 32nd team, the Jets thin the Washington football team and then the Cowboys.
Interesting that he has the Cowboys higher than the football team.
Uh, even though the football team just beat them by 22 points at 25 to 3 of the Cowboys Indians score touchdown.
Um, the bad, but still competitive on any certain games.
Tear is, um, the Jags.
At number 29 the Broncos at number 28 the Texans and number 27.
Number 26 Patriots.
The Giants ahead of the Patriots at number 25 the Lions than the Panthers, the Falcons, the Vikings Bangles at number 20 in the Chargers at number 19.
I think that was just a shot at Warren, as he is a Bengals fan, and Sean is a Chargers fan.
But, um, the Fringe playoff teams, the number 18 Chicago Bears, the number 17 San Francisco 40 Niners, the number 16 Philadelphia Eagles, the number 15 Browns, UH, and the number 15 Dolphins in the number 14.
Ah, lid Playoff contenders Number 13.
The Colts number 12.
The Rams number 11, the Raiders.
And then where it gets really, really important is the top 10.
We have the, uh, Chicago Bills, the Buffalo Bills coming in at number 10, the Arizona Cardinals coming in at number nine, the Titans, who just lost to the Bangles.
Coming in at number eight.
Uh, the Ravens are the bottom of the tea or five French Super Bowl contenders.
Their number seven.
The Saints are number six and the Packers under the number five team in the league and the legit title contenders.
We have the Seahawks, the Buccaneers, the Steelers and then the Chiefs at four through one.
So the Chiefs still have the number one spot, actually, on both of our lists and, quite frankly, the our top four are exactly the same.
I also have the Seahawks, Bucks, Steelers and Chiefs in that order.
Um, feedback to his list, man.
It's a It's a real tossup once you get outside of, say, the top seven, um, or even the top six, because the Saints have an all time great quarterback, but they haven't looked too dominant.
Yeah, they've been missing Michael Thomas, but that there's something that's just off putting about the Saints.
It just doesn't feel right like it's classic.
We're going to be a Super Bowl contender this year.
We I don't even know if they're gonna win the division, which may be another reason why they're kind of throwing me off.
But, um, they just beat the Bears 26 23.
Um, and and it was It was an exciting game for in certain aspects, and it was a boring game and other aspects.
But they did beat the bears who now fall to Oh, um, I'm very, very surprised.
The bears were now five and 30 wow.
I thought they were supposed to be a super bowl contender.
You know the Bears.
Alright, Anywhere there on.
And then, you know, at number eight, you have the Titans.
Well, they just lost the Bangles, but they barely lost the Steelers and they lost.
They smacked the bills.
Just barely beat the Texans.
So how good are the Titans? Really? They have Ryan Tannehill, whose? Ah, game manager quarterback.
They have Derrick Henry, Who's He's an anomaly at running back.
You normally don't see those? 6 3.
5 £236 backs in the league.
You see those smaller, even even if they're around 2.
30 to 40 you still CMB 5 11 6 ft, maybe 61 with it with a very outside zone.
You know, he can't.
He can't, Really.
His acceleration isn't the best.
But once he gets the full speed, um, then then he's almost impossible to stop.
And then, um And then when you see you've got I mean, you've got the cardinals and number nine.
Yeah, they just beat the Seahawks.
Yeah, they beat the 40 Niners.
But are they really, really all that are the cardinal somebody that we trust? Do we trust that defense do we really trust Kyler Murray to just like that? Fix the turnover problem.
I don't really think we do now.
The interesting thing is, in the future, next year, two years on the road, I think they're gonna be one of the better teams in the league with that secondary.
That youth in the secondary.
Um, you know, they've got a qualified edge rusher and Chandler Jones, but at the same time, they don't have it all yet.
And then you've got the bills at number 10.
Well, the bills have shown its weakness.
They barely beat the Jets.
They got smacked by the Titans.
Um, they're they're an interesting team.
And Josh Allen, you know, he started off hot against poor opponents.
Is he really all that yet? Um, I don't think so.
Then you know the Raiders, They beat the Chiefs, their quality team.
But the Raiders have no defense.
And when you really when you really look at them, the division isn't all that tough.
The division is competitive, but it's not all that tough.
They beat the Panthers and weak one.
They beat the Saints and we too, but they lost to the Patriots.
They lost to the Bills.
Then they beat the Chiefs and they lost to the Buccaneers.
Then they beat the Browns.
And you might be saying, Oh, well, they held the Browns to six points.
Well, how much faith do we really have in the Browns? If we're being quite honest, I don't think we really have any faith in in the Cleveland Browns to do much of anything.
Good, Um, unless it's just get a lot of rushing yards and and maybe win a game win like seven or nine games.
Um, going up his list.
You have the Rams? Well, the Rams seemed like a good team.
The Rams, um, there.
You know, they just went to the Super Bowl a few years ago.
They still they have a lot of talent on that roster.
Um, they got Jalen Ramsey. Aaron, Donald.
Um, you know the future's looking up for them.
They've got a nice trio of running backs.
Yes, they just lost to the Dolphins and very, very ugly fashion offensively, defensively, to a barely threw the ball.
He didn't even throw for 100 yards, so it was the Dolphins defense that won that game.
Jared Goff did not take care of the football.
Then they beat the Bears, but then they lost of the 40 Niners.
Then we saw the 40 Niners just get smacked around by the Seahawks and you and, you know, they lost to the Bills by a field goal.
Then they smacked the Eagles.
It's just the NFL is a is a mess right now.
Then you've got the colt so well.
The Colts have Philip Rivers, so that's on automatic.
No offense to Philip Rivers, but he has never shown in his career that he could get the job done.
And you and the Colts really haven't faced anybody.
Really, really, really good.
They played the Jags.
They lost by touchdown.
They played the Vikings. They won.
They beat the Jets.
Of course, they beat the Chicago Bears 19 to 11.
So that doesn't really tell you anything because we know that the Bears were gonna hold you to under 20 points.
And we know the Bears offense is not gonna be able to score really well.
So that's not even a testament to their offense or their defense being especially good.
Then they lost to the Brown 32 23.
Um, we've seen the Bears be able to be stopped.
The Browns be able to be stopped recently.
Then they beat the Bengals.
They had to come back filled Rivers, credit to him to the great job.
And then they put up 41 on the Lions with the Lions.
Don't really have a formidable defense.
And you can say, Hey, props to the Colts defense for holding the Lions 21 points.
Yeah, the Lions have a good A good offense, but the culture just in a weird spot.
And then if you look at the, um, tier above that, you've got the Browns, the Dolphins, Eagles, the 40 Niners and the Bears.
Aziz Shawn's fringe playoff teams? Well, it I mean, the Brown just got held to six points, for goodness sakes.
Um, they did not show out well at all.
I mean, six points.
You guys were supposed to be one of the most more explosive offenses in the league, and you just that's the second time.
That's well, that's the second time you put up six points, is the third time you've put up a touchdown or less as you lost 38 to 7 against the Steelers.
And it's not like the Raiders have especially good defense, either.
Then you have the Dolphins.
Well, the Dolphins are one of the teams that I think you can be confident in.
But then again, there, the Dolphins.
So you know, you can't really They're not just gonna have a snap turn around like that.
Um, and I know it's it's bad to use precedent ahead of a team, but you know, you can you can assume things against guys like Philip Rivers or Nick Foles and Mitchell Robiskie.
Um, when they've shown you these things over and over and over again.
And, well, I have great faith in Bryan Flores.
I think two is gonna be one of the better quarterbacks for the years to come.
Um, to really didn't show you anything in that game.
He barely threw the ball.
Like I said, Um, their defense is looking better, but who they really playing in the division? They're playing the Bills offense, which at best is is in a weird spot.
Um, they play the Jets and then the Patriots, who don't have good offenses that also so what that's gonna inflate their defensive numbers, Um, and then yet to to or through the ball 22 times.
He completed 12 passes for 93 yards and a touchdown.
And it's not even like like Rushing was expected.
They only had 47 yards on the ground.
It was the defense that really just I mean, Jared Goff.
Through two picks he threw.
First of all, he threw the ball 61 time.
He was 35 for 61 for 355 yards a touchdown in two pics, a 12.
8 GVR because he fumbled twice.
Lost both of those fumbles.
Um, now, uh, to also fumbled, as well as Myles Gaskin, the running back.
And they were recovered both by the Rams.
The Rams fumbled three times.
They lost two of them, but also to interceptions thrown by golf.
No interceptions thrown by to, uh, and it's Nobody was spectacular in this game.
It the Rams offense lost the lost that lost the ball, dropped the ball.
Um, figuratively speaking, were not figure speaking.
And then, if you look, the Dolphins had two sacks and then, of course, the two interceptions So the Rams did not play well at all, which, which I think, is ah minus for the Rams.
More than it is a plus with the Dolphins, then the Eagles are are the Eagles.
They play in the N F C East.
Nobody in the NFC should be taken seriously in terms of playoff success, but then again, the Eagles have three wins on the season and and they I mean, there are three win team, but they're in first place, so it almost it feels like, Well, yeah, they're in first place.
But then it's The Eagles were 34 and one.
They tied with the Bangles.
They just beat the Cowboys, 23 to 9, but they barely squeaked by the Giants.
They lost to the Ravens in a really close game.
They lost the Steelers in 11 Aaron nine point game.
They beat the 40 Niners, but then they lost to the Rams, and they tied with the Bengals and right behind them 17.
I thought they were gonna repeat as as a very, very competitive team.
Maybe not making the Super Bowl as the NFC is just so stacked and so competitive right now, but they followed four and four. This week.
They're in last place, that loss of Seattle by 10 points.
But really, they were just getting bruised and and kinda kinda Boyd around.
Did not expect that to say the least.
UM, they got smacked around by the Dolphins.
They lost to the Eagles, but then again, they beat the Cardinals, who are supposed to be one of the better teams Right now.
They're ranked Shawn's number 19, and they smacked around the Patriots.
They just punched them in the mouth, 33 to 6, and they beat the Rams, 24 16.
So, so who's really? This is what makes it so hard to make power rankings and to really feel confident in them.
I was feeling extremely confident, and then the Packers lose two of the last three games.
Um, and just poor fashion, just not looking good with glaring weaknesses.
It's not like it was really competitive game back and forth, back and forth and the other G made a spectacular play.
It was just They exposed weaknesses in the Packers defense, mainly, but also offense, especially in the Bucks game.
Not not the Vikings game at all, but in the bus game, and it was just it was not a good showing by them.
But then, then again, the Bears on anything toe to feel feel confident about.
But the Ravens have shown weakness.
The only four teams you could really be confident about are your top four, and that's the Seahawks, the Buccaneers, the Steelers and the Chiefs.
And to that point, I'm gonna go to my top 16.
I've got the Browns at number 16.
I've got the Dolphins at number 15, the Bears at number 14 just because of their defense.
Honestly, their offense is abysmal.
They honestly probably have the worst offense, the league.
Except for the Jets.
Um, and the defense is definitely kept them in games like they have shown that they are capable of.
It's just up to their offense to start getting together, which I don't think they're gonna do.
Then you've got the Raiders coming in at number 13, the Colts at number 12, the Cardinals at 11, the Rams a 10.
Yeah, the Rams a 10, the Bills at nine, the Titans at eight, the Saints at seven, the Ravens and six Packers Aaron, the number five spot, then the Seahawks, the Bucks, the Steelers and the Chiefs.
I think those those teams really separating themselves from the pack and we're gonna see them.
Honestly, those four teams are going to go deep into the playoffs, at least three out of four.
Um, so now that we got those power rankings out of the way, um, we could go on to some other other news.
So the 40 Niners shut down their facility, which is interesting because they play the bank where the packers.
Sorry, Um, this Thursday, they are actually projected toe win.
They've got just under 60%.
Um, matchup in the matchup predictor by ESPN.
Uh, Aaron Rodgers has thrown just under 2000 yards, 20 touchdowns, two picks throughout.
Has thrown just over 1000 yards with seven touchdowns.
He is not going to be playing this Thursday.
Um, due to injury.
Erin Jones, 75 carry.
So far, he's missed.
I think the last two games, um, 390 yards and five touchdowns than most are has dealt with injuries all year.
I was having a really nice year with 300 yards on the ground in a whole lot more on the air.
He is going to be out.
Davante Adams is halfway to 1000 yards on the seasons.
You have 43 catches for 502 yards and seven touchdowns, then leading receiver for the Niners.
George Kittle, 37 catches, 400 74 yards, two touchdowns off of the three.
Statistical leaders on the offense are going to be out with Garoppolo, Mostert and Kittle and then, of course, Depot saying it will also miss um, this this game, um, team team wise.
The Packers have scored just over 31 points a game and the Niners sitting right at 26.
The Packers defense is allowed just under 27 points a game.
Um, and the Niners are sitting at 21.6.
The yardage wise, the Packers air just just barely above the Niners and total yards, even though they're getting about a touchdown.
Mawr, um, with 407 yards of offense for the Packers, Packers and um, just about 400 for the 40 Niners and then yards allowed 363 for the Packers 325 for the Niners.
Um, not looking pretty for the Packers defense again.
The Packers are five and two and the Niners or foreign four.
So, technically, family a game and a half separating these two teams, Um, in the long run.
Last five, of course.
The Packers lost to the Vikings last week.
I'll talk about that in a minute.
And the Buccaneers sandwiched between a Texans win.
They beat Atlanta and they beat New Orleans.
Um, and then the Miners have lost three of their last five.
They beat, They lost the Seattle.
They beat New England and the Rams.
But then they lost the Dolphins and the Eagles again, making it so hard, uh, to judge these NFL teams, the NFL's honestly so balanced.
This year, it's It's crazy.
Um, so the Packers against the Vikings, I'm gonna break that game down for your real fast do. Shh.
Pick six and we get out of here.
The Aaron Rodgers threw for just under 300 yards and three touchdowns.
Kirk Cousins threw for 161 touchdown on Lee threw the ball 14 times.
If that tells you anything.
It is that the Packers run defense again.
Is there main problem? Their second problem is lack of wide receivers and those honestly neck and neck.
Um, Delmon Cook ran the ball 30 times.
That's a bad sign.
Do not want Dalvin Cook with that explosiveness running about 30 times, because if he's running the ball 30 times, that means that you are giving the Vikings chances and chances to stay in the game and run the ball, which they want to do.
If you were blowing them out, they would have to start throwing the ball.
So cook around the ball 30 times for 163 yards and three touchdowns.
He was also there leading receivers.
He only got two balls, but they were for 63 yards and another score.
Dalvin Cook scored all of the points for the Vikings.
Aaron Rodgers again threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns on 41 attempts to Mark Williams carried the ball 16 counts for 75 yards.
Tanyon caught the ball five times for 79 yards.
Davante Adams caught the ball seven times for 53 yards and three touchdowns.
Um, so very, very unbalanced attack.
Dalvin Cook was the whole offense for the Vikings and Aaron Rodgers to Davante Adams was the whole offense for the Packers.
Davante Adams at all the Packers scores.
Jamal Williams did rush for two point conversion in the fourth quarter to make it 28 to 22.
Um so the Vikings scored on their first four possessions on offense.
The Packers scored on their first two possessions on offense.
They only touched the ball twice for two drives before halftime.
In the first half, you only got the balls in Aaron Rodgers, the best quarterback of all time, the best quarterback of all time, once again, the best quarterback of all time.
You only got him to drives in the first half.
Then, when you're trying to make a comeback after you go down 28 to 14.
After the third quarter of the Vikings scored 14 points in the third, the Packers did not score any.
You're trying to make it come back, Um, you score touchdown, you get the two point conversion and then the lack of receivers really starts to rear its head with Allen's are being out.
Lack of dynamic weapons.
Erin Jones did not suit up in that game.
The Packers figured that it would not be too hard to lose.
Apparently, they were wrong.
Um, and so the Packers fall to five and 22 and one at home on the year, and the 40 Niners did not play well, either.
The Seahawks kinda kind of push him around.
UM, they lost 37 to 27 Seahawks again, putting a ridiculous amount of points.
Russell Wilson threw the ball 37 times for 261 yards and four touchdowns.
Nick Mullins threw for 238 yards and two scores.
Um Jermichael Hasty for the 40 Niners, 12 carries, 29 yards.
Yes, the Niners air Definitely missing where he most hard, and they're missing him badly.
But Brandon I u receiver who they drafted.
Wow, look at that Green Bay.
Uh, they drafted a wide receiver and he caught it.
Catches for 91 yards and a score.
Just imagine if if if the Packers had a guy like Brendan I you next to Davante Adams or even a guy like Van Jefferson or K.
J handler or somebody Uh huh.
Metcalf got the ball 12 times for 101 161 yards and two scores for the Seattle Seahawks.
Um, it was It was a pretty dominant game.
Seattle went up, um, went up big time.
Nothing after the first quarter, Um, they now the Niners scored a touchdown on the drive.
Following between, Seattle answered right back with touchdown on their own, and that essentially ended the half, then three and out for the Niners.
Seattle goes and scores a fumble by the Niners on the kickoff.
Seattle goes out and scores, then a three and out again for the Niners.
Seattle gets a field goal in the Niners.
Put together a nice drive.
11 plays drove down the length of the field, 79 yards on scored.
Seattle punted and then basically touchdown.
Seahawks Touchdown Niners into the game, so the Niners gave it their best shot.
But trailing 17 points Um, in in the late minutes of the fourth quarter is not a good way to beat Russell Wilson, Um or or and you see Hochstein.
Really? Russell Wilson or not, Jimmy Garoppolo before he left the game through the ball 16 times for 83 yards or 84 yards and a pick.
Nick Moans came in.
Didn't look too bad.
UH, 18 25 for 238 yards and the two touchdowns.
No interceptions for Mullins, um, and then rushing touchdown for Jared McCann.
And he had three carries for negative one yards but a touchdown? Um, Tevin Coleman ran the ball three times for 20 yards.
John Michael Hasty ran the ball 12 times for 29 yards and a d J.
Dallas carried the ball for Seattle.
18 attempts for 41 yards, Um, and the score and then Travis Homer that ran the ball once for four yards receiving.
Wise A catches for you.
Catches for Kendrick, Born for for Jared McKinnon.
Um, the touchdowns were caught by Ross Dually and Brandon I Yuk and then D K.
Metcalf, deejay Dallas and David More.
All caught touchdowns from West.
Um, Dante Pe**** fumbled on the kickoff and lost it, leading to another Seahawks touchdown, and then Bobby Wagner had two sacks in the game.
A really, really good game for him.
Um, the interception was D J.
Reed Jr with pick.
So, uh, San Francisco really did not impress at all during that game and just kind of got beat around by Russell WILSON.
Um, that what They gave away too many possessions, man.
They gave away too many possessions.
Uh, the game started off with three punts.
Um, but then a pick thrown by Garoppolo leads to on on a drive that has already lasted three minutes.
Um, led to a touchdown by Seattle.
Then the Niners answer with their own touchdown on an eight minute drive.
That's what the Niners do. The best.
14 plays, 79 yards, eight minutes and one second came off the clock.
That is how San Francisco wins football games.
They took the lead in Seattle, missed the extra 10.
76 within Seattle, scored a touchdown on their own, and it was the 13 to 7 game at the end of the half.
But then three and out.
Touchdown, fumble, touchdown, Boom Right there, 27 to 7 20 point lead.
Um, then another three and out of fuel goal, 32 7.
Europe by 23 Then a touchdown scored the defense has a good job forced to Seattle punt to punt within touchdown, touchdown, touchdown and Seattle hangs on to win the game by 10 points.
Um, if you are the 40 Niners, not not a good game at all.
Now some updates on S H pick six from last week.
Um, I went seven and five.
I got the Packers game wrong as well.
Some other Shawn also did.
He went five and seven.
So not improving his, um, not improving his record.
It all the total records I go to 52 wins or 52 corrects on the year with 40 incorrect.
And Sean has 44.
Um, corrects with 48.
Um, I will bring you the games for this week.
Um, when? When I see you guys then.
