All right, We are live episode 11 of reasonable doubt.
I'm Trevor at trying to, as always with me, Chris at C Capital C on score more six.
Uh, we apologize.
Didn't come back to Tuesday with, um all the election.
NFL trade deadline, Nothing really happy.
And there wasn't really a whole lot of news, a whole lot of stuff to talk about.
But we're here now, and I'm sure, um, Chris is going to very much want to talk about the game that happened on Sunday.
Um, package driving on the field at the end of our last episode.
I was very happy.
I thought I was in the bag.
Um, and it definitely was not so.
Chris, the floor is yours.
I've I know you've been waiting for this.
I mean, like, I should have called it.
I mean, like I said, Vikings 30 like 32. 22.
I said, Green Bay, and like you come I was crazy, but, like, hey, the regulation showdown like, not sure if I could see that should have played all year.
Like I don't know why they have little.
It seemed like they finally had a clicking on all cylinders.
I just wish it was out of the earlier and they maybe they would make a play over.
I think it's probably too little too late at this point, but yeah, I mean, like I called a game.
Like I said, that I could probably really motivated to win this game like more.
Probably one more than the factors do being the we're not really play a picture anymore.
And like this simply huge rivalry game.
So e I picked him and I end up being writing like forget that looked really good on Sunday.
Yeah, um I think everybody knew exactly what Minnesota is going to dio, um, unfortunately, lifting and make a **** difference because they could not stop them at all.
Um, do you think that's more Dalvin cook and this offensive line, Um or do you think this is Mawr Packers and ability to play any semblance of running defense? I mean, I called Packers last year.
However, that was a big question.
We're going to the areas that run defense, however, like you had the Eagles running all over them and like it's all year.
And then obviously NFC championship game, they got ran out the building.
Like they ran all over them.
So, I mean, they have been a heat readings of the Packers for the past 12, 34 seasons.
Now they want to run diva specifically.
So in the same time, like, you know, Minnesota, like, maybe three running backs in the game, you could say Yeah, so, I mean, I was a good game plan.
Middle to kind of just attack it and kind of closed Green Bay once again.
And it kind of shows that, like, that is still weakness.
You know, the NFC championship game.
Green Bank gave up 285 rushing yards.
8 yards per carry.
And I don't think it got exactly much better against the Vikings.
You have the actual stats.
I mean, Aiken easily.
Um, I don't know.
The staff album cook at 30 carries, 453 yards and three TDs.
So that's pretty good.
That line they only had 173 rushing yards.
5.1 yards per carry.
Doesn't cook e mean it was It was bad.
Packers almost came back But then they realized that, uh, you know, uh, that's not gonna work because, you know, you can only push off the inevitable for so long.
As good as Aaron Rodgers is when there's 10 seconds left and you need to throw a Hail Mary with no timeouts relatively easy to guard that, um I mean, everyone has done it before.
Like they don't get me wrong.
I'm ready to get Detroit.
That was unbelievable what he did.
Like I'm like, Well, for five years ago.
Maybe longer than that.
Even though I was like, he's done crazy stuff in the past, I think.
One of the biggest parts to his Kirk cousins, E.
I mean, he didn't really do much 11 for 1460 yards.
E mean, exactly.
That's what I was gonna bring up.
He didn't do bad.
Um, you know, take out the 50 yard screen pass, which again showcase the packers.
Beautiful ability, a tackling, uh, that they have had trouble with since Probably I was born.
I mean, he's only 10 for 30 teen with 110 yards, but I mean, qbr looks good. Rating looks good.
Only sacked once.
No interceptions. no fumbles.
Got to be happy with that.
Um, are you a little worried, though? I mean, look, they came into the game plan and the game plan work.
Might not be able to get another one.
Another piece to really contend.
Or do you think that was just all the game plan was why Kirk Cousins didn't really do much.
I mean, so going to future you got solid cap was gonna be issue.
I mean, Kirk Cousins.
He's the highest paid player in the league, so, like, that's obviously a huge burden.
He does not live up to that contract, but at the same time, like I don't get too mad of that contract because at the time, the bunkers they're on the brink of like being, like are the best in the NFC.
Like that was the year that the Eagles in the NFC championship game, like they're on the brink of just like getting over the home, but at quarterback in a town, this case, Keenum.
He was like maybe an average quarterback at best, they probably below average.
So if that Kirk Cousins probably just get him over the edge, did it lead defense and it could running attack with Devin cooking in the gang.
And I mean, obviously like it hasn't worked out for them, but the same time, like remember that often they ignore the option or let it go.
And I mean, and Kurt, one of them money.
And they they needed the quarterbacks.
They had to give him that money.
So I mean, it's unfortunate, but just kind of like how it played out.
Like, it's kind of like the Vikings kind of forced only to do it.
Yeah, it will be interesting, too, because they obviously have a lot of holes in their team.
But how much are they paying Kirk cousins this year? Probably like 30 million.
Right? Somewhere in that, uh, sorry.
My computer's acting up.
You know, I'm looking up the free agents for next year.
Um, hey, I'm just saying, you know, cowboys did him dirty.
The act Prescott, Maybe to the Vikings.
You know, there's some good free agency or George Kittle, the tune in just your cap strapped True.
And, you know, they really have some problems defensively with, you know, stopping people, too.
But I mean, when it comes to the Packers, I mean ****.
If you're on the field the whole game, you know, if you only have five possessions in the first first half, you know, it's it's not hard to.
You don't need much of a defense, but, yeah, I think I might feel that.
My things that I feel like this is the first for the offensive coordinator because I've stopped recording that we have for years.
Kevin's fancy coaching the Browns right now, so I mean, like you have always still kind of figure out so far was a new offense.
New coaching, being so so I mean, I think e think this year is kind of like a fluke.
I don't think it could start a trend.
So I think, like the markets and balanced back next year.
Yeah, and they all give credit to Stefanski.
Uh, his team's point differential is minus 31 this year.
And Cleveland, um, say what you want about that.
But the teams five and three right now that's the best Cleveland team.
Probably in a while. We'll definitely in a while.
Yeah, he can. Coach.
I mean, like you want to break is pretty well on offense.
They prepare about five seasons E.
I mean, he's done a good team.
You know? I'm gonna be honest.
I thoughts the fans getting I think he was that good.
Um, and they're not slouches.
Um, they've really gotten smoked by Pittsburgh and the Ravens, but I think a lot of teams would, too.
I'm looking at the schedule coming up.
They get some, you know, easy week.
So, you know, the fancy, I think, was a bigger loss than people thought.
Do you think the Vikings go for a different way for an offensive coordinator, or is that too quick for a year? Even with their struggles? Uh, that's a good question.
I say probably stand pat for now because I mean, like, a new office is always gonna be hard to kind of implement.
Like even the Packers last year, member of the floor.
I mean, that was kind of like question coming in the new office.
Kind of like working on that.
So I think just give him a year and like and I think we'll be okay so I'll probably give another chance.
But like, it was next year's bad to then.
Yeah, I was security.
I'll give him a chance.
Yeah, I'm looking at it right now in the NFC North, at least obviously, the Packers.
Their first points for but Vikings scored 183 points in seven games and in seven.
So, you know, they're not They're not.
That they're not great.
Yeah, but like, yeah, so they can get better.
Yeah, I got I believe in it. Making it better.
Is it just a chemistry over time? Yeah.
Now, since you won, I will ask you questions about the packers because I feel like you will have no problem talking about it.
Since you have everything to brag about.
Um, Packer's defense is obviously horrible.
They couldn't tackle, they couldn't stop the run.
We all know what was happening.
Um, they just couldn't stop it.
Do you think all year I've been saying it all year? I know, I know.
But after after the Minnesota game, we're not going to talk about San Francisco game.
San Francisco is knocked up a two, but destiny insane.
Uh, do you think the problem with Green based defense do you think that's a player issue coordinator issue? Is that a focus issue? What's wrong with this defense because, you know, 28 points isn't bad, but god****, I mean, these guys, they're letting e mean you cannot lose to a team that throws the ball 14 times.
I mean, like, I see you're coming from.
I mean, obviously, it's easy to point blame to the coordinator, but like, there's something really wrong.
The Packer, just like identity as, like an organization that comes to defense.
I mean, like, like this.
They never like anything big time star players and people.
I mean, there's pretty Matthews, obviously, back in the day, like you had him.
But like usually like, there's like, not like a big marquee like the most of players. And they have usually.
So it's kind of like I don't know, It's like a whole, like kind of structure, like they kind of both because an offense and getting like Aaron Rodgers and stuff made getting, um, offensively, helpers organizational problem.
But I mean, like the defensive cause this year.
I mean, I said, Yeah, he got Yeah, it's been questioning some of the 13 shorts, even, you know, even when you know a lot of questions call.
But Yeah, I think the whole organizational problems, though, is a bigger e was like, third and short.
They won't stack the box and they will give the receivers, like, 10 yards.
I'm going to take the flips that I think it's 100%.
The defense coordinator.
Um, because I look at the guys and you talked about like packers not having stars.
Um, people forget Michael. Hi.
It was a Packer.
He's doing some crazy things in Buffalo.
Nobody really talks about him.
Because Buffalo Casey Hayward, widely looked at, is one of the best cornerbacks in the league for the past five years.
He was a Packer.
Um, Damaris Randall saying packets let go.
I don't know why they just the organization.
I don't know what it is like this don't like e don't know.
For me, it's even on top of that.
I mean, you got you know, right now you got Jay, you're one of the best cornerbacks in the league.
You got Adrian Amos, who's a decent safety.
Darnell Sa***e, a great rookie.
Um, linebackers Preston and Za'darius Smith are very good.
Like you have players here.
E Don't get me wrong.
Don't get me wrong.
The defensive line has not gotten pressure.
They have not gotten inside to that line, so that's a big problem.
But like, look at the linebackers. Secondary.
The safeties, like they got talent like they always have.
And it just seems like it could never get it toe work.
So I'd lean defensive coordinator almost.
Yeah, just like you kinda mentioned defensive line like in football, Defensive line is, is huge, like it just huge, kind of get pressure on the quarterback.
It kind of maintaining ground to prevent, like, big runs from happening because you don't want linebackers main titles for running.
But I just want the deepest alignment.
Get those tackles.
So I mean, like, that is obviously a big area.
You got to focus on something like back when they get Clay Matthews online like all the other stars.
Like when Packard he was not really good.
That's it with a better team.
I think my eyes to get so I think it's really big focus.
I mean, look at the highest paid defensive players, always like the Aaron Donald's the mild here it's always a defensive lineman like the D ends, because that's really important.
I mean, the last decent Green Bay Packer defense we saw was when BJ Raji was there.
He wasn't great, but he take up two offensive linemen.
Um, and they're just not going any pressure.
It's pretty easy.
Um, but it's interesting, though, because one of their defense alignment that's really good or statistically is good. Kenny Clarke.
He always does well in December.
I feel like that's more because of the cold.
I feel like that must do a factor because he's been complete **** every other time of the year.
But it will be interesting.
Um, you know, looking at the Green Bay Packers scheduled here, Um, they play the Jaguars at cold spares eagles at Lyons in the near future.
Um, those five games Do you see anything changing? What's the record? You know, take us through anything to be concerned about Here.
Also, practice schedule.
Yeah, like the next five jags cold spares, eagles, lions.
So I mean, looking the schedule that I mean, I don't really see anything that really stands in the packers way.
I mean because, like there's just too much offense, I think, um, the Colts could be interesting because I mean, like that because they're kind of one of those kind of like under the radar teams you could, like, sneak up on you so that they'll be interesting.
I mean, Jack J is obviously that should be pretty easy for them. Chicago.
I mean, it'll be interesting.
Like, I mean, that's a I could have turned that actually right there.
Like honestly, like you determine it.
So I mean, like, that's a really good game, but yeah, eagles, obviously.
I mean, I mean, let's my cousin once goes off and they play that is empty, like a capable, but it should be.
Probably win because they're demons is not that good.
And obviously, like unbelieving Detroit, either.
And then even the rest of the season, like Carolina, Tennessee would be like, more tough, and then get at Chicago again.
So, yeah, I mean, like, it is favorable, like the schedule.
Like like I could go there like we could have very well go their way, but I would say the games to wash their probably Chicago games.
I could see that probably being a split.
Honestly, like, probably, like went at home.
Most the anything any of us can be one of our.
So, yeah, those don't forget Northern Tennessee.
You could get into.
Yeah, I was looking, you know, near future, two hours looking colts.
Their defense is a jet on.
Their offense is just good enough.
I mean, it does not be great against this Packer's defense and the Bears to That's gonna be a really horrible matchup.
If you love high scoring games, that game, the winner might score. Yeah, it'll be boring.
Yeah, actually, a very boring game, because defense and the Packers defense sucks.
So, I mean, who knows to the Viking side two and five.
I mean, hey, the Packers ran the table a little bit ago looking at their future schedule.
Um, next five weeks.
It's not outside the realm of possibility sand.
It could win five if not four.
Detroit at Chicago.
It's gonna be tough with them.
Dallas, Carolina, Jacksonville at home the last four weeks for them after that at Tampa Bay.
Chicago at New Orleans at Detroit.
But that when it gets the Packers, do you think that keeps a coming like it's possible.
But like I just Green Bay schedule is favorable to is you got to keep that in mind.
Let me just check Chicago schedule Quick playing up right now.
So their schedule remaining is at Tennessee.
Is that could be tough.
Green Bay, Detroit, Houston, Minnesota, Jackson, Green Bay.
I mean language, Heart.
Yes, there's a kind of be like Houston and Jacksonville's real relevant.
Detroit's not the best, either, so I mean, Minnesota.
I mean, it's not as possible, but I mean, like the blankets, and I'd love to see it happen.
They kind of like when when the Packers had a really bad record and writers Oh, we're going to the playoffs were on the table.
They did like I mean, it's possible just obviously, I don't believe it because of leadership, like a rotting leadership.
I don't believe it's the same level to really lead a team to run the table like that.
I mean, so, like, yeah, so it's not a zero chance, but I would say it's unlikely, probably just being like an honest like ****ysts here.
I mean, as a as a fan, I love to see what happened.
I wanted root for my team, but that's that's an ****yst.
I say it's unlikely.
Honestly, I can't believe I'm doing this.
I'll take a more optimistic stand thing you are right now.
Um, because I look at, like the Tampa Bay game, I mean, New Orleans has not been looking well.
Tampa Bay might have might.
It's very possible they have clinched the division by them.
Um, I think there's still something to play for, but, you know, there might be a little more cautious.
And I think a thing that could be really big, if it happens is there's talks about NFL having eight teams in the playoffs now, Um, it's very preliminary.
We'll see if it happens.
But it's talking about eight teams, Um, because it kind of acts like a last an extra last week of the season for teams that might miss games, which I mean 18.
Now I got the four division winners.
Obviously, um, the Vikings, they're gonna be better than 18 NFC East.
There's gonna be a second team out of NFC North second team on the South to teams out of the West.
But the Rams 40 Niners, if they beat each other up enough.
You know, who knows? Vikings might be able to slip in.
That's just preliminary, but, you know Hey, we'll see.
Um, yeah, I e if you just kind of two types of me and, like, I don't know, like, it's just kind of e.
I mean, like, not the Niners are kind of out of the picture.
Like, e think it could help the bag anymore, because that's one team is out for, like, even the NMC.
What, you're looking to get the Rams get the Cardinals and the sea house over there, and you have, like, NFC South.
They have the saints and the bus, like you mentioned, and then you have NFC north of the Packers and bears.
So I just like, it'll be tough to be really tough.
I'll just say you seem crazier things, So I mean, who knows? Um, Shadow Thio, baby shark J 93 for the whistle.
Um we won't spend too much more time on the Vikings, Attackers, unless you want to throw another shot in there.
Uh, I'm over the loss now.
Um, I can't believe that anybody but myself for having him up too much.
So if you have an extra shot, I mean, feel free to throw it in there.
I mean, you laughed me, like on Sunday of the When I predicted that again, you literally laughed me.
Well, there's no chance. And here we are.
Yes, I did e a question.
It gets kind of round things up.
So, like how Rogers M v p chances is that still really good? Um, that's enough for weeks E per week.
No, I mean, you always looked amazing.
Vote, I'm saying is, other than that Minnesota game, he doesn't even have a flaw, like at all.
Um, I mean, Tom Brady is going Murray dark horse to I mean, we will really like him if that keeps first NFC West after winning five games last year.
I mean, you could throw him in there.
Um, there was early pick, like after the person, Like, a week or two.
You might early pick. Yeah.
If if teams start to lose in the in the NFC, I mean, my homes could pull something out of his ass, too, So I mean, he's in the conversation.
But is he a serious contender? I don't think so.
I don't think it's a knock on him.
I just think there some of these players are just playing out of their fricking minds right now.
So out of respect it, we will stay on this NFL subject right now.
Um, it's about mid season.
What are your predictions here? Here.
You know, let's we can run through the visions real quick Or just tell me who is your favorite.
Actually, we won't run through.
Division is just give me a favorite from each conference.
Give me a dark horse.
And who do you think is gonna match up and won the Super Bowl? Yeah.
So, paper and FC, I got to go with the defending champions Chiefs.
I mean, my home is just unbelievable talent, arguably the best of all time.
When it's all said and done, just crazy, talented, just she is a rolling.
I mean, this is Libyan Bell to mean the opposite is unmatched.
I mean, I mean, lady on his looked a lot better.
To have to give him props for that doesn't look a lot better.
She's going there so I mean, yeah, I gotta go to Kansas City, but yeah, dark horse, y'all say Pittsburgh.
I mean, like, obviously undefeated.
Really good defense.
Mike, Tom was a great coach.
Exceptional almost to test Super Bowl winner.
Obviously been a big Ben as a lot of people experience.
So I mean, like, yeah, I was probably My dark horse is done, but definitely a dark horse.
Like, if they're, like undefeated, I don't I don't really know if I mean, I said a little dark horse because Kansas City is just so superior, I would say, um, NFC, I gotta go. Tampa Bay.
I mean, yeah, especially the a B now to like, the office is gonna be crazy.
Um, Tom brings me a lot better.
Like you said M v p level kind of season that he could be.
He's in the conversation, at least now for a GP, even at age 43.
Unprecedented cadmium, 43 goes athlete being argued that one of the best in the game, I just That's ridiculous.
And obviously, Tampa Bay defense to get I mean just how to get the Packers.
I mean, elite like I mean one of the top in the game, like probably top five, for sure.
So, yeah, I finally figured the NFC.
So because I mean, like, offices like to really dynamic d. K. Metcalf.
He's really came on the scene like, Oh, my Lord, like he's out here catching balls left and right.
He looks like it feels better, like Michael Thomas, even like he's like, way faster.
He wants even mixed up Michael Thomas and Julio Jones, kind of combining one like receiver.
Like if you want a lot of Calvin Johnson back in the day, he's unbelievable.
Like wow, like then you have, like, lock into.
Obviously, there's so many weapons.
Obviously, Demons is a question mark, but Pete Carroll's experiences M o is defense.
So I think you find a way like a single game to beat teams in the playoffs.
So, yes, by my door cars.
But yeah, I said, I have a favorite in the Super Bowl.
Probably both Kansas City of the repeat.
I mean, they've been talking about all year to really confident.
They really want to repeat even talking about it since after they won last year, so and I think, yeah, moment one about it, that half billion dollar contracts.
So he was kind of because he wants to be recognized.
One of them as the go.
He's already said that they've made that very clear.
You have start building resume at some point.
So the offense obviously living in Bel to dynamic office, I had to go Kansas City.
You've got to respect the also.
I mean, he's he wants and he's looking Ah, lot like it.
Um, for me, FC, I think fair it's gotta be the Chiefs.
Uh, they do have a loss, but, um, their point differentials 101 they've only given up 10 less points than the Steelers, so their defense is legit, too.
I'm actually gonna take a shot of the left field.
I'm going to say the Miami Dolphins.
Um, here's what.
Here's to win the A.
C. Listen to me.
Hear, hear. Hear me out here.
Hear me out here.
They lost a very close game to the Bills.
Week to week one at Patriots.
They lost a close game is.
They didn't really know what they were.
They lost a close game by eight a game.
You could argue they should have one last three weeks.
They have torched teams now, granted, they played the 40 Niners.
That was before they got super hurt.
They're still hurt.
But towards them, they play the Jets suit.
They don't even count as a team.
They beat the Rams up pretty well.
And don't look now, um, let me just double check.
Yeah, this team has given up the least amount of points out of any single team in NFL.
Any single team, 130 points through seven games.
And we're talking about dark horse point differentials plus 58 points.
You know, I mean, or they're they're the definition of in his performing Better and Joe Mix and nobody's paying attention, Dark Horse Star course again.
And, you know, with expanded playoffs, anything can happen, you know? I mean, ****, we almost saw Houston begins city, um, NFC favorites gotta be Tampa Bay.
I don't think it's because there that Amazing, uh, they've been the best team in the NFC.
I just don't think there that great, but nobody's really been close to them.
I mean, that Giants game is pathetic.
Um, they're of course, I'd probably go Arizona.
Uh, because their offense is so good in their defense, A defense coordinator room wants who can be amazing.
I gotta go chiefs, Um, I gotta go chiefs over Tampa Bay just because right now, again, I don't think temp is that good.
But nothing's really showing me anybody else who can consistently be a good as Tampa Bay.
Um, but yeah, I mean, I'm high as hell on Miami.
Um, if I mean, like, okay together.
Just think how lucky on the A C.
Actually, I think it's probably a lot bigger.
Ratings can have a chance.
I mean, like, yeah, I see the writers.
I mean, like, they didn't really streaky.
They've been really, like, good competitive games.
I mean, like their car.
I mean, obviously, he played a high level. Sometimes.
I mean, like, he's He's the M v p.
A few years, the government before you gotta hurt.
Until I got mean.
I think the Raiders like they could make a run.
I could potentially see that.
And then, yeah, I mean, Cardinals.
I mean, that's a good dark outside Seattle ca.
I thought because I said Seattle the dark horse because that's a database was better than because of that. Deep inside.
Describe yourself in three teams.
I mean, like, I like them a lot, too.
But, like I would say, like, it's like it's the best team that divisions part of the Rams.
I mean, obviously that defensive next level, I mean, Captain Ramsey got like Aaron.
It is the only question mark there is obviously Jared Goff E.
I mean, like, they have been to book before they have experiences so they could make it run.
So I would say, Yeah, like, I think, corresponded third bits and divisions so I wouldn't put the Cardinals of the dark holes over like the Rams.
I will actually change it.
I just looked at some more metrics.
I'm gonna agree with you in Las Vegas.
I'm looking right now.
Strength of schedule is 6.
for those of you who don't really know much about how is their ranked, it's from to 1.
That strength of schedule is fifth hardest in the league, and right now they're four and three in the eight spot.
So one spot out of the wild card with the Browns having an extra game in hand above them on.
A couple of the teams haven't actually enhance strike.
The victory, its second, um, the only team that has a higher one is Jacksonville.
However, I'm not going to count that because they won one game.
So obviously that strength of victory is gonna be skewed again.
6 40 Biggest PTO one.
Remember that, the Chief? Hey, anything can happen to playoffs.
The metrics say they've been very good there once by the playoffs, with thereby be guardian hands, Um, point differentials and great.
But I mean, it doesn't matter in the playoffs. I want to win.
Speaking of the Raiders, kind of a perfect segue recently they had they got punished by the NFL again.
Repeat infractions of the facemask rule.
Raiders were fined $500,000 and they lost their sixth round pick.
Um, if I'm not mistaking, the sixth round pick just goes away.
Um, no other team gets it.
Um, and Jon Gruden himself was also fined 105 $5000.
That's his problem.
It may operate from here and there, from Tina team, like you're kind of control this virus, You get it under control in just like it's kind of the PR aspect is kind of like because, I mean, you see the coach on the TV all the time that you see there, like with their without base master.
Kind of like having malware mass kind of get that p s a out there like, hey, wear a mask in public.
Social distancing kind like a good P R P s a move for the NFL, too.
So you gotta really hammer that down and force that, I mean, protect these players potentially for exporters to the virus.
I mean, I'm gonna Vikings had one of their coaches test positive.
I mean, like, obviously remember wearing a mask.
Probably helped him spread each other players potentially on like, Yeah, I'm like, even watching like Jon Gruden on silence that you kind of, like, makes fun of it.
Like he like, barely like he words it, like, half wears.
It worked just over his nose and like, it's like he's like making fun of it almost like it's not a big deal, but obviously this pandemic, I mean, we had 126,000 new cases in the day yesterday.
It just this definitely next level.
And they could get really bad that were next few months.
So yeah, really? They get on top of the head of the game and make sure these players are okay.
Let's see the the news is normal.
I think it's perfect, I think.
Get a Gruden, too, because I think he's the biggest player a same time.
I like the sixth round pick because not like 1/7 round pick.
Worthless eyes in the six brown, for sure.
Like so it's not, You know, you're not taking a first round pick, but thank you.
I don't think you're gonna find this time of great in the city this year, but you never know.
Um, in $500,000 of this amount of money, e mean, you hit it right on the head.
I mean, he's just kind of making fun out of it.
You walk through a even like an attempt like it's like the hell are you doing? And, you know, with the fractions before, with the people that weren't authorized to be in their locker room in their locker room like it's just keeps on happening.
We'll see if the Raiders air stupid enough to keep doing it because, I mean, if been fined and warned before, and they just keep doing it, Um but, I mean, they keep doing it.
They might be running out of some draft picks.
Pretty soon they might see themselves with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd nothing else.
But, you know, it definitely sends a message, the less wrestle league to.
And now if you're the Raiders, you better pray to God you don't have an outbreak because you've lost your by with the way you've been treating it.
I feel like them NFL is gonna make you for for it, to be honest.
Yeah, definitely kind of on the coronavirus topic.
This just in. Rob Manfred.
I guess I'm gonna already kind of show my thoughts on it.
Rob Manfred again cannot do his job.
Justin Turner was not at all public, uh, punished for taking the field again when he was coded positive after the world Siri's to be there for the celebration.
Um, the story goes that he was back in the room watching on TV with his wife when he found out his positive.
Um, he then waited a few minutes, as he said in his own words, and then figured nobody's.
There's probably nobody left out there and went back out to take pictures.
There are many people there.
Um, he gave kind of a half hearted apology and effort accepted them.
Uh, do you think it's right from not to be punished? Is it wrong or is it kind of a gray area? I'm a beach is so bad or giving a punishment.
It's like they're horrific, bringing the Houston Astros thing like pretty much like nothing happened.
And Alex Coria, his job bag purity is a card we re hired.
Okay, so what's the season to get re high right away? They have the worst punishment that they held.
No one accountable.
It's just unbelievable leadership.
What a J Tigers manager, too? Don't forget about that.
This is unbelievable.
Just like they have a Korbel leadership like there's hell no unaccountable.
Like there's the worst that like don't don't.
They're hard on his p E.
D s probably coming.
Obviously, having these get these guys like these Hall of Fame players like waiting to get inducted.
It's like so hard on that for some reason how they were after players playing in the games right now, just I just don't get I mean, like, in this case in particular, I would say, Yeah, like, you have to punish them.
So I'm like, I'll watch an interview with Kershaw on building you're talking about like like they were pretty upset by.
They felt uncomfortable.
Their families were exposed to him that they were around like a positive like like like player and like.
And they all knew he was, Well, she they didn't know he was positively, but later found out that he knew he was positive and still went out there.
I'm like Kirsten bulges and said minimally and come to the fans were around that.
So that's just so rude and like, entitled and selfish of him to do that. So you have sent a message.
Hey, like this is not okay and stuff yada, yada, yada.
I'm gonna be sure that investigative like how you actually got Koven because there were in a bubble that they couldn't leave or anything.
They're isolated in the hotel.
So how do you even get it? So yeah, a lot of that going around that story, but typical m o beaches, being horrible, being pulling people accountable of suspensions and punishments.
Well, hey, a reason to tune into us Tuesdays and Saturdays because we predicted we both talked about it last episode or two episodes ago when Justin Turner did that.
We said it'll be interesting to see how that affects the chemistry.
And here is Kershaw on Bellenger coming out like you said, talking about how it makes them uncomfortable, uh, comfortable and, you know, **** you.
Um, but, you know, it's something to think about.
You know, For me, the thing that ****ed me off too is like, just give him a slap on the wrist or something.
Like, really, like every just accepting apologies.
Now, on on top of that, like Justin Turner, like, you waited and you thought nobody would still be on the field.
It just won the god**** world.
Siri's Where is that It immediately.
Like me or not. Minutes.
So you knew and well, like this wasn't gonna be Oh, take a picture on the field and you could have taken a picture on the field before the game.
If nobody is on the field, it's the exact same picture, you know? So, yeah, I I don't know.
And for me, the core thing ****es me off.
I love the Red Sox, but they traded away their best player in bets.
Said we're gonna tank and rebuild Tank, and I'm like, Yeah, it's like, Okay.
I mean, once again, l b can't do their job.
Well, not and will be. Rob Manfred.
Cannot do is job at all.
He sucks. We all hate him.
Yeah, so I'll stay. Turner.
Yeah, Like, I mean, I'm just I'm not a fan of it all.
I mean, because, like, I'm not a delta and either by any means, but he's still a consistent, but yeah, just man for just he's so bad giving a punishment.
I think I was at Turner at least a fine or something like It's something like I don't know, Like a like a huge suspension camera.
Like Max Kellerman.
ESPN he mentioned, suspended for a year as a little aggressive.
I said okay now, but it for a full season, just for like, doesn't calm down, but yeah, I said at least a fine.
I mean, come on, something like this, dude.
And I know these dudes get, like, an actual statement.
If they win the World Series.
I don't know how much it is.
So, like, even, like 10 $1000.
$50,000? That chump change to this guy like this is some reserve picture either, Like, do something by God.
But they didn't.
So, you know, I mean, here we are, Um, And like you said, case is still rising.
Kind of switching gears a little bit.
I know your height for it again.
It will start December 22nd, which I mean, don't look.
Now it's about I mean, it's coming up quick.
Um, and that's when it starts.
So, you know, training camp, this ****, it's gonna start pretty soon.
But it will be interesting, because obviously free agency in the draft has to be done before it.
Do you know what dates those air being looked at? I can look it up. Yeah.
So the draft is on the 18th, so that's like, not everybody all on Wednesday, and then I'm 20.
It's gonna be started.
Two days after the draft s That's what it's gonna be you so like.
Yeah, that's, like, two weeks from now.
I mean, that's and training camp they're talking about starting drinking December 10.
Which I mean, ****, that's only a week.
And but the shortened season, right? Or is it 82 games? 72.
So they cut off 72 so that shouldn't be too bad, but it will be interesting.
Um, you know, we talked about a little bit a while ago to about like, the star is probably not going to start right away.
Especially like the LeBron's who were asked.
Um, actually, physically, everything.
Emotionally, Um, here.
Do you wish they would have put it? Pushed it back.
And so the stars come back earlier.
You know, what's your whole feelings on the season Start time? Yeah. I mean, like, December.
I don't know why the 22nd.
That was kind of weird to me and said why they December? Why not just Christmas Day? Because the summer after the lock up season in 2011, they started Christmas Day.
And like I thought, that was a great day because I'm were like for most casual MBA fans, like, Christmas Day is kind of the beginning of the season because that's like the big, huge matchup football starting to wind down like it was like the end of the regular season is going into playoffs.
It's kind of the kind of got good big spotlight moment for MBA is like Christmas Day.
So, like, I don't know why why they didn't make Christmas data opening night.
So it's kind of like really confusing right there.
But, like, I mean 22nd.
I mean, it works, I guess.
But like, I mean, I like it.
I mean, like, because Because because, like having having in this schedule this way gives enough time for them to them toe country, playing Olympics.
Just the whole Vince Carter dunk.
They jumped out at some put it.
I was in the lyrics, You see? All kind of crazy.
Yeah, So I've been a schedule like allowed to print that also allows for them Thio get back to normal and be a schedule that will be like delay, the way it's M.
d like the players wanted. Like the whole season we delayed getting next to be delayed again.
So it's kind of big this puts make sure this season is still on track.
That's I mean, I'm here like, bonnet.
He'll play opening night because he wants that ring ceremony and all that.
So he probably tell you granite raising, but, yeah, I'm curious to have embolism.
Guess he's gonna be no fans. All assumes.
Probably fans there.
But, I mean, we're all used it at this point.
They were still the sports we're getting.
Um, so it must be something we're missing because, like, if it was the 24th, a lot of people have off 23rd may be a lot of people take off, but E Tuesday just were you on the line? Yeah.
It's a weird date.
I don't know why, um, but yeah, you know, I was thinking, you know, Christmas time or maybe the first of January, Those air only really a week apart.
So not really that big a difference, But I like it.
I think the games might be a little much.
Um, but a lot of back to backs. Yeah, like 72.
Like that amount of time.
It's a lot of games.
I mean baseball.
They have 66 66 days.
So I mean, like, they could do it.
I'm gonna lockout season.
They had, like, 50 games and like, um, they like back to back to backs and stuff in four games in five nights and the government, like they got through that season like LeBron and then winning that seat.
So maybe repeated that On top of that, I feel like I was thinking quick turnaround.
But I mean, you can't really push it back much further because the teams that didn't make the playoffs, I mean, these guys haven't played since like March s.
That's exactly Zeiss.
But I think this just again showcases.
I don't agree with everything he does.
Um, you and I talk a lot offline through text about my pure hatred for Zambia Refs, uh, they're definitely rigged, but that's a whole another debate.
Uh, this is another example that Adam Silver can get **** done like he's good.
The players respect him.
The players like him, you know, to get this done is no small task.
And it wasn't like Oh, when CNBC going to start for, like, weeks.
It was like they talked.
Yeah, it was It was like a week Probably.
Yeah, it was. It was fast.
I mean, a lot of a lot of president good relation with Adam Silver, like it's not like, back and forth that MLB the players decision they hate man for these, really, but had come like the whole, like, not have been a lot of the process, because I feel like that until the MBA like a lot faster because, like, they're just going back and forth.
I said this should not be this long of a debate, but they just players just don't like Bamford.
And it seemed the NFL, they just don't like dealt that much like it's kind of like Constant is back and forth, but like that was really important having relationships and like with people you're working with, So it's a good example of microcosm for, like, a bigger picture of it.
Do you? And I just is good to have much of people that can make things a lot easier and working together? Yeah.
You know, you look at you know, MBA as a whole there.
You know, whether you agree with that or not, that's not we're going into.
Um, but, you know, whether you agree with or not, they're much more progressive.
The players don't like Goodell, but I think there's a certain level of respect for his effort because he's at least trying.
It doesn't even look like he's trying again.
He looked drunk at the world. Siri's presentation.
I mean, at least be somewhat sober, but yeah, I mean, I'm you know, we talked a couple episodes.
Give it's not last episode about, you know, coronavirus.
How how long is it gonna last does your question to meet? We're not gonna get any further into politics in this right now, but Joe Biden is the new American president, as it is projected, and it looks like he's probably gonna get about 306 electoral votes, so it looks like there won't be a super contentious.
Did he win? You know, super long period.
Um, why bring that up? You know, he's always talked about being more stringent on coronavirus if he can, you know, get this under control.
If I'm not saying he will.
I'm not saying it's gonna work, but if he can, you know, we could see sports back earlier.
Um, is this something that you think sports fans, you know, whether you agree with it or not, should be saying maybe it's worth a try. Hey, ****.
Let's see what he could do.
Hopefully get us, get our ass is back and see it soon.
I mean, that's very interesting perspective, because he's really commented on, like, sports and, like how, like this should be handled.
Like Like what? The whole pandemic.
So I think I'll be very interested to see what he says.
I mean, he's a speech in, like, 15 minutes.
I'll be very I'm very me tuning into that.
You got to say, So what is potential plan? But I think like you potentially leave like the country, like through, like, kind of like like like he wants to like American back in their stuff that he wants, like, kind of like help us get through this.
So I think he'll he'll offered recommendations to kind of help these ladies get through it.
So I think it is a good sign for sports fans and they get really happy and kind of a good sense of a good plan of what's gonna happen for a sports and, like how fans being there, how the athletes, they're going to conduct themselves, how they should run in etcetera.
Well, and when you say, you know, um, you know Biden cares about getting us back, Um, we have said it multiple times where sports were not political.
On this podcast, at least offline, we definitely are, um, way say that they're two different approaches.
We're not saying that Trump wants there to be coronavirus.
That's not at all over.
So no, it's just two different approaches. So it's gonna be interesting.
And, you know, Hey, if it works, I mean, in a hypothetical where it does work, there gonna be a lot of sports fans that will be really happy.
Um, I was exposed the coronavirus about two weeks ago from a guy at work.
I text my friend.
They have free Corona testing at multiple sites in Milwaukee.
Um, I live on the suburbs.
I said I might drive an extra 30 minutes to go to the one at Miller Park just because I missed the stadium.
That much like this is this is the level we're at now.
I just want to see the stadium s, you know, who knows? Who knows, You know, I mean, like, like, like hopefully like, we'll see what happens, you know, be interesting.
So hey, we'll go to some quick hits.
Um, I actually have a lot down, because ****, there's a lot going on eso We'll start with this.
Um Okay, well, this quick, um, we'll start here just before the game gets too far out of hand.
Notre Dame against number one Clemson.
Right now. Their names up, seven.
19 left in the first.
And they have the ball.
Um, they scored totally.
They scored a 65 yard run on a touchdown.
Play the game on Ben. Council on Foreign Out.
Um, looking at this game, Who do you think is gonna win? Do you think this means is much Triple Lawrence out? Yeah, I just have a clumsy they look, they look so dicey.
Just last game against Boston College, I just I probably as a Notre Dame.
I mean, like, they're really motivated. They want.
They want to make the playoffs.
So like like they wanna make have the extra push and make that cost ballplayer potentially so they'll be more motivated.
So obviously I gotta in order dangerous because Trevor Lawrence I mean, if he was, if he was playing, obviously I'm saying I think they're the best team possible right now.
But without him and how vulnerable they looked, they looked at multi college.
I gotta go with Notre Dame because they need this way.
And then we were motivated to get this way.
Notre Dame is horrible against top 10 teams.
I don't remember this that, but they're just historically that.
But like you said, Trevor Lawrence is in the game.
I mean, especially since there are seven. Nothing already.
I think this does affect a lot, though, because people are gonna know that Trevor Lawrence isn't in this game.
If they play clubs in the SEC championship game and they get blown out, it's not gonna be as good of a one loss we be Clemson team is People would usually expect Okay, the other quick hit.
I guess it kind of about and see a football in general.
Uh, for who? For anybody said or football? Whose? Your football? Um, um, I would say probably the big 12 people have talked about a big time.
I remember it said, like Oh, like Oklahoma.
Still going to be good old Oklahoma State.
Still good, then, like Texas.
And they've just been like atrocious has not been a good season for the big 12 to probably the biggest point, but by far the big palpable in general.
So, like not one seen a whole conference has been like, I'm not big tall guy in the first place, but like the whole car, it has been like this bad this year.
I'm not taking a dig it, too.
I'm going to say Penn State a lot more time to Indiana.
Um, I don't live in Indiana.
Still, as a team that was looking to be a playoff team, you lose to them in the game.
Yeah, Ohio State.
They should have lost by more than 13.
They've just got ran by Maryland by 16 at home.
Um, today they got Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan.
They've been bad, too, but so far them just because of their expectations.
Um, which I don't think anybody saw One and 20 and three start.
Um, but hey knows, uh, we will.
We will kind of switch gears.
We have a couple different topics here, NBA for a quick hit free agency and draft.
Just give me 11 thing you're looking for One surprise move.
An MBA, free agency and draft coming up.
Yes, I'm pretty sure, like at some point, probably next week or the week out, you'll probably get a whole like topic into the N b a draft, because I'm looking forward to that.
But more. They're looking forward to number one.
Pick my Minnesota Timberwolves, my local team.
They got the number one pick, so I mean, e decent picks.
In the past, we had a car that he was still having me. So he's a monster.
So yeah, Number one pick to see who? The walls in a gift.
I mean, for me, I will say, Anthony, it was right now they got I really like his style playing his like motor.
He just really hungry.
So I say probably Anthony Edwards, but yeah, well done.
Rolling pick I'm looking out for? Yeah, for me.
I say, free agency.
I think it's kind of teams don't know s so that's my production.
But I say the winners will be the Bucks, not because they do anything great, but because they just do a **** on because they need to, because they look horrible in the playoffs last year.
I'm sticking with N B a.
I mean, there are rumors right here.
Detroit seventh pick.
There are rumors they trade up her lament lowball good or bad.
Move for the Detroit Pistons, Detroit Pistons.
I'll say good movies.
I mean, like like especially with a Blake Griffin.
Like he use a good guard on like any, like, more, more like name, town and more branding like bring this very basketball brand back because, like, I mean, like the recent champion, like, 204 hours when they won.
So, yeah, I would say good move for me.
I'm going to say bad just because I feel like they're gonna have tow package some stuff together.
Um, but I mean, they have They'd have to trade a decent pick.
A decent piece, I think, Uh, this team true it right s another one.
Ah, NFL trade deadline.
Were you happy that there was not a lot of moves? Were you surprised me perspective? Like I was like, I don't think I also focused on like that Tuesday election stuff.
So I was just out of I was just so focused on that.
But honestly, like maybe that something to do with that.
They make the NFL like, like, organization.
Just so focused on like that.
Instead, they feel almost, like, forgot about the trade deadline.
And it wasn't really, like, talked about because it was the same day, so yeah, but I mean, overall, I mean, like, usually treated like NFL is not as crazy.
Created like baseball, NBA is usually like that.
Not like a whole bottle.
So I mean, I found that I was cool.
I wouldn't matter. Anything.
Um I was ****ed.
Packers cheated out again on the water.
Stephenville Fuller, Who wanted to come here? E no, I'm not surprised.
That was ****ed, though.
I even Yeah, I mean, I'll send you to me.
We made for it afterwards.
Um, but yeah, I was more surprised.
You know, Carlos Dunlap.
Agent a green? Um, yeah, I guess I'm just listening up Bangles.
But a lot of people that weren't very happy with their situation, like Golden Tate, they didn't get traded.
Usually we see people who are ****ed just ship him off, get rid of.
Actually, Dunlop was traded.
I apologize. He was traded to Seattle.
Um, but a lot of people that were ****ed weren't traded, which I was a little surprised, because usually they are well hit NFC North.
So for the last two quick hits upcoming games this weekend, we got some big ones on first game, we have bears, Titans.
That's gonna be a good game.
Good defensive game.
Hopefully, how do you see this game plan out? I have type.
Yeah, they're defense is good, but I just think the economy's better.
So, like I mean and China, I think Tannehill that you can't sleep with him either, so that the time has been exalted more.
Although this year they better than I thought they would be.
That last year's a fluke, that making the championship There's not so Yeah, I'll say, probably the Titans.
You have five and two.
They play Yeah, they do play tomorrow. 12.
Um, I'm honestly going to say the Bears.
I'm not a Bears fan, but I have not been impressed with Tennessee.
They look like trash against the Bengals.
And they didn't look good against the Vikings or the Jaguars.
The Bronco post.
Granted, that was earlier in the season.
But, um, I know I'll pick the Bears.
I feel like Nick Foles pull something out of his ass.
So say that another big one.
Uh, currently the two cellar dwellers in the NFC North.
Which east? First place? If there that have seen SL, it's relative Vikings.
How do you see that game plan out? I mean, like you mentioned in, like, a, like, a few seconds before, Like vice out a chance.
So, yeah, I gotta put the Vikings like, really good last week.
I mean, it's a lot better offensive.
Dublin Cook was a monster.
I mean, obviously, I don't think that the lines were to start doubling could And the Vikings like they have a chance. Country make a playoff.
The whole team, they looked lively.
Get me on the bench in so they get up to the game, so I had to go.
Vikings Well, and I mean, you hit on the head.
Momentum, momentum. Huge.
They have a game against Alliance who do not have the number one receiver in Golladay.
So, um, their lack of secondary help as a dowel from Minnesota Probably not gonna be that big of a deal, so I say Minnesota, Um, but who knows? Matthew Stafford can always pull anything out of his ass.
But with that pay, we'll go with 11 Big, as always, there sometimes always before we go.
Any questions so far? Oh, yeah.
I don't get anything questions.
We So I know all of mine were about the Packers Vikings game, which we want to dip on.
Um, so before we go one bold prediction for the upcoming week before we come back Tuesday.
So I guess, really, just for Sunday Monday, one bowl prediction.
Um, I would say my contradict what I say.
Actually, earlier, I mean, I picked the No, no, I paid Notre Dame to win coming, obviously without your Lawrence.
But I said both directions probably cleanse it. Finds a way.
I mean, like, Washington surprised the world.
I mean, like, obviously like it came back against Boston College or down they came back.
Even without your reward.
My boat pressure, We did Clemson and surprised me.
I'm proven wrong.
Be able to be not a name like Candle even.
No. Yeah, I'm gonna go really bold.
Um, because if it happens, I look like a god.
And if not, I mean, nobody's going to be surprised.
Jets Patriots Jets get their first win of the season at home against New England.
Uh, they look like ****, but they play the Chiefs, so that means nothing.
And they only lost to the Bills.
Joe Flacco will be playing.
He's, um, or experienced quarterback.
Cam Newton has been looking like trash e I mean, honestly, I don't think it's that crazy.
I mean, tapes of it.
They have, like, a lot of players out Kim that has been playing well.
I mean, it's possible, but if that happens, cameras and not looking in a good spot well, and after that they play the Chargers Dolphins who look good now Raiders, Seahawks, Rams, Brown's patriots.
Um, if they don't win that game and, uh, they better hope the charges blow another lead or the dolphin suddenly collapsed because the only other game they could look at possibly winning would be against patriots again.
So they might be on 16.
I say they beat the Patriots.
I'm probably gonna regret it.
But, you know, um, so with that, that has been Episode 11 a reasonable doubt.
Um, we should be back Tuesday.
I don't see anything holding us back on Tuesday.
Obviously, it's last time. This election.
Um, there's really no point.
Everybody is watching it and or, you know, they're just really much sports stuff going on either.
Since we're on Sunday, so are voting as well.
S 06 was tough time, but we will be back Tuesday.
