How are we doing, my good friend? Feeling good, man? The bets were hitting this weekend, so I'm feeling good.
Imagine being able to look into the camera and say that with a straight face without lying to our fans.
Because let me tell you something.
If I said that my house might burn down right now, yeah, I've been on probably I'm on.
I'm on a Cleveland Brown streak right now.
I'm not gonna lie to you.
I don't know what it is.
I know. What? Here's my problem.
I'm trying to live up to the parlay prince thing.
And, you know, I gotta I gotta stop doing the parlays, because I'm always, like one or two off, and that's what's killing me.
But no C player Pops player problems different last night, So I was down a lot of money, and I was like, you know, I got to try something to get this down a little bit, making more manageable.
And I was like, You know, I'm gonna do some player problem I had on every single player prop last night, so I brought it down a little bit.
But, you know, still still, I I need to be able to get paid one of these days.
I'm sick and tired of owing money.
But you know what? That's technically a beautiful transition into what I was gonna say anyway, because we gotta pay the bills around here, as I always like to say.

You know, we gotta hit him with the quickly who? My It's my turn to give Josh one this week.
I'm not gonna lie.
I told before it's It's a little easy.
The first three hints won't be as easy because I wanted, you know, I've got to give I got to give you some time to sweat it out before I hit you with the last 10 years, like okay, but I'm gonna I'm gonna start. I got the time.
I got my hands here too.
So I'll started when I when I m the first hint, as I always do.
But you righty Josh.
You know, I'm a child.
I want to see if you can get this without the four thin like I really e Really? I really want you to get it with that.
Without the fourth time.
I don't know, because I was kind of ***ue, but all right.
I was drafted 21st in the first round of the 2000 and four draft.
04 I'm a two time Super Bowl champion.
Five time Pro Bowler eso.
I played for two teams in my career, but I played for one.
The majority of it played for two teams.
That's the third hand.
See, it's because what's messing with me? I'll know the position, bro.
Like All right, I'll give you.
I'll move the fourth 10th down to 1/5.
I'll give you the position.
Defensive lineman for it.
Well, no Brahma need the last thing because e don't know.
How about this? More importantly, defensive tackle, Defensive tackle.
All right, I'm going to start shooting names.
Uh, I'm sorry, Po.
No, uh, defense attack.
See this last handed, you're just gonna be like, Okay.
You wanted? Yeah, give it to me because I don't know the team's he played for where the patriots and Texans, Vince.
Well for it. Yes, sir.
Man, I should have known it was.
See, That's why I was I didn't want to give that last one because I knew I knew it was going to give it away.
But, you know, I was I was on Xbox earlier.
I was like, You know, I need to whom? I asked the people they said Vince Bull for, you know, I decided to go with it.
I miss my e missed my man's.
I was so heartbroken when he went to the Texans.
I was like, Nah, he should have been one of those people that that retired.
You know, uh, you know, uh, no comment.
I can't I can't make comments because, you know, Vince Wilfork was a big man on.
Well, I'm kind of in that club, so I'll lay low here.
But, you know, Vince Will Fork also has given me one of my happiest Madden moments of all time.
Me and my boys were playing squads one year.
Don't kid around with Vince Will for you.
And one of us got interception with him and returned it for a pick six.
I was crying on the floor, laughing.
That was an a one good time.
Big perceptions are just the best man.
It doesn't get better than that.
Patriots have had some elite big man moments like events with the I was just about to say that with was legendary, I think.
Who was it? Was it I wasn't Matt Light? Yeah.
Our, uh, our economy.
Maybe I don't remember who it waas, but dude with e was moving.
E really thought he didn't get that return.
And then Vince Wilfork had had the juggling interception against the taxes.
The one here who Patriots Patriots got those elite big man moments.
But we were moving on.
And speaking of patriots will look to the former Patriot in Tom Brady.
We got the Bucks and the Rams tonight.
Could be a very interesting game I'm hoping for.
And, you know, over the spread are over the total here because, you know, you know, trying to get some money, as I said.
But let's see here.
If the Bucks win tonight, there are other division.
They're in the fight for the division, and it's gonna be tough because they obviously lost those two games to the stance.
What is going on? Our former us.
And look at this. Alex already in here.
See, this is why I had Christian in here earlier.
Because if you missed it Alex Or who am I? Was Vince Wilfork and he thought it was you.
So what does that really say? What does that really say? But with those two losses to the States is gonna make it very, very hard.
But I guess you can kind of still win the division if you if you win this game, maybe they might have to win out or something of that nature.
But with Drew Brees going down, I think gives them definitely a better opportunity to do so.
Uh, it could be it.
Maybe it might be a little bit easier now that breezes out.
But obviously we saw the Saints yesterday.
They won that game pretty handily with Taysom Hill, a quarterback which is a whole different type of conversation, because the minute Drew Brees went out, I feel like, ah, majority of people at least thought Jameis Winston's in to come in and then all of a sudden, they named Taysom Hill to start or stop.
Hey, not my choice.
But that's also why I guess I'm not a NFL coach head coach because Sean Payton one with Taysom Hill quarterback this week.
So we'll who is really the smart one now, but if they win this game, they still have a chance at the division.
Josh, you think that the thing that they could take the division still or you think you think is done, so I think they have a better chance now that breezes out.
Obviously, Taysom Hill show that he can step up, though.
He had a really good game if they had a couple touchdowns.
But I don't like the idea of them announcing a starter.
I think if you're depending on throwing the ball, you go Jamous, and if you're going to run your normal offense, you go. Taysom Hill.
I think it was stupid of them to kind of announce a starter.
But the Patriots kind of really need this wing because states are eating, too.
Now, if the Bucks lose, this will go down to seven and four, and there's there's not a lot of time left in the season.
There'll be a playoff team, but getting that home field advantage will be huge for them.
Don't ever disrespect the M V.
Carson once like that again, Alex, who is better once or Taysom Hill? No, bro.
My boy Carson M v p ones, of course, but no.
Yeah, like you said, I think that tonight's game is gonna be really interesting to decide the future of that division because I think if they lose this game, which on the Which kind of weirdly, I heard you know before we got on that the Bucks were there one and two in primetime games here, the only one they had was against the Giants.
So that's a little a little interesting that especially when Brady's or quarterback I mean, just being a Patriots fan, I always, you know, and used winning primetime games, I don't know.
So it's just a little weird for them to see them under 500.
Don't you dare start going around rumors Brewing hurts bench and went, I don't see.
See, here's my thing.
And just to get off topic real quick, it Carson is having a terrible year like don't get me wrong and, like they're not playing good, a quarterback change is going to do absolutely nothing.
It literally does absolutely nothing.
First of all, you're still winning the division at the moment.
Second of all, the offensive line is absolutely awful.
So what? You're Instead of getting Carson once killed, you're gonna get Jalen Hurts Killed like I don't really understand the point.
And yeah, I don't like I mean, no joke society.
I still believe in person wants to, As Alex said right there.
So I don't know.
I really be a little bit of a weird situation.
But from one potential M V P in Carson wins to, ah, MVP winner and Tom Brady.
He's having a pretty solid season so far this year.
He has a seven interceptions.
I think he's at 66% completion percentage, maybe 24 touchdowns.
Last time I looked, if I if I am remembering that correctly, so he's having a pretty solid season, obviously has a lot of weapons around him, which was obviously the primary reason for going to the Bucks.
I think that there's a chance he's in the M V P conversation.
Do I know if he do? I think he wins it.
Probably not, especially with the way my homes is playing with the way you know Russell's playing, uh, you can throw in Rogers in there.
Even Joshua Allen has been playing well.
Kyler Murray is played well, But to me, I still think that this M V P conversation is kind of wide open because everybody's been up and down.
Everybody's been up and down besides my homes.
And in a way, I still feel like my homes might not win it this year because I almost think it's gonna be the Tom Brady Michael Jordan LeBron, you know, effect where? Yeah, okay, he has, you know, 28 or something.
25 touchdowns, two interceptions.
Has a bunch of yards.
Well, obviously, that's just what do you expect to happen? I think for my home's going forward, he's gonna have to have, you know, unbelievable seasons for him to win.
And it is definitely still possible.
I think this race is still wide open.
We've obviously seen Aaron Rodgers struggle at times.
Skylar's played, you know, all right the last two games, Josh Allen's had some stinkers.
Uh, Russell Wilson had that bad game against the Cardinals, had a bunch of turnovers and, like two games, I think had like 55 or six turnovers and in like two games or three games, so it's kind of been up and down.
But I think Brady is definitely in the race, to say the least when he I'm not so sure.
I don't know how you feel about it, Josh.
What do you think? Yeah, I feel like I agree with what you said.
That kind of LeBron Jordan effect, He just He's always had these good years and you can't give it to him every year.
So it's just kind of like he's he's gonna have these great numbers, but I think my homes would be in the lead for me.
I mean, he's just he's come up big in a lot of games and the only game he's really had that he was kind of a couple games that he was kind of down were against the first game against leaders and then the game.
Them was lost against the Chargers.
But even in those games there, multiple touchdowns and a lot of yards, and those were his down games of the year and Russell Wilson, having a low two games get against the Cardinals and Rams.
I mean, just really hurt him having that big lead.
But I do think this race is still very open with how Kaehler has been playing Josh Allen.
And if the Texans were better, I think the Shawn Watson could be up there with them. Thio.
But I think Brady has a shot, but then again, it's It's the LeBron effect.
You can't give it to him every year, so I doubt he's really in the final two or three.
And even with the M V periods, like you said, with that little skid that also, Wilson went on, it might not matter in the long run, because I think, I believe last time I looked, Russell Wilson was on pace to throw for like 59 touchdowns.
If you throw over 59 touchdowns, I don't care.
You're getting the M V P because that's just an insane amount of production.
And I also think you have to look at the cir***stances each person's.
And now it's not anybody's fault either, because listen, if I could be in Patrick Mahomes situation as a quarterback to, of course I would be.
But he has, you know, Kelsey Hill, one of the best offensive minds of all time, and Andy Reid, uh, two headed, you know, monster at running back now with living on Bell and you know when there has been playing pretty solid, especially last game.
But then you look at Russell Will and and the Chiefs defensive solid.
They're not anything crazy, but they're solid.
And then you look at Russell Wilson, where Tyler Lockett is considered pretty pretty good.
DK is an emerging star, but they're on their like fifth string running back.
There are tight ends or old is dirt.
Greg Olsen just got hurt.
Their offensive line is bad.
The defense is the worst in NFL history.
And what are they, seven and three? Yeah, something like that.
So it z just up in the air because I feel like there's a lot of things you gotta look at, but I think it's M v.
Race is going to be very, very interesting.
And then John got a quick question for you from Alex.
You got you got Walker Bridgewater going forward.
He had a They didn't even have a great game.
It was an okay game.
I'm definitely taking Teddy be come forward.
Uh, you think You think you could start a corner out? I don't know.
You know what I can't listen if you don't know what your 40 time is, I need to know that first.
But it's a possibility without bad.
That defense says it is just, Gosh, I feel so bad for Russell Wilson in this situation.
But let's get back to tonight's game and head on over to the other side of the ball.
If they win this game, are they Super Bowl contenders? Because, listen, we've seen them beats, um, pretty solid teams.
They beat the Seahawks, they could beat them.
Uh, if they could beat the Bucks tonight, it will be another solid victory.
I don't know how far I want to go with Super Bowl contenders, but you can put them in the race because I don't know literally who.
I don't know who I trust in the NFC anymore.
That's why I don't trust anybody.
I like, Can you look at the Saints and say OK, maybe maybe I believe in saints.
Yeah, but they don't have Drew Brees at the moment and we've seen them fold in big games in the playoffs the last few years.
I believe in the box, but then they have a game against the Saints, where they were completely lost and their defense didn't.
I feel like the defense hasn't been the same the last, like, two weeks.
So they're up in the air for me.
You've seen them losing pretty? I don't know, I guess.
And listen, here's the other thing we might have to get into a swell.
I might have to start putting respect on the Colts because listen, I don't believe in them because of Philip Rivers.
But if they're going to continue to win at some point, you got to start putting respect on them.
But do you believe in the Packers, whose defense or run defense is not sound? So what if they go up against, you know, have a run attack N F C East? You don't have to worry about because whatever team comes out of there, you're they're gonna lose the Cardinals.
I don't like their defense, and Tyler's kind of up and down sometimes.
And then you go to the Seahawks like we've talked about before.
Who are they going to stop? They literally can.
I think if you took me you when everybody in this chat right now we might be able to put up 300 yards and a half.
Yeah, so it's It's just it's kind of up in the air, so I don't know if I want to go Super Bowl contender, but I'll say there are a threat in the NFC because I don't know who I trust right now.
There's just way too many ups and downs and left turns and everything like that.
So where you fall on the situation, I would call them Super Bowl contenders for the same reason, because I think everyone, but whoever wins the NFC East has a chance to go to the Super Bowl because of how we consistent everybody's been playing on.
There have been times where the Rams look really, really good, and then there are other games where they look awful, and that's kind of the case like you said.
For for every team that's gonna be in the playoff race in the NFC, it's not the same as the A F.
C, where you have some juggernaut teams that are just dominating the competition like we're probably going to see Steelers chiefs down the line somewhere.
So for the NFC, I would call them to both contenders just because Sean McVeigh they've been there before.
They know what it takes to get to the Super Bowl, and they want to go back.
Obviously, I think their defense is improved since then.
Aaron, Donald probably gonna win Defensive Player of the year if Myles Garrett doesn't get it.
So I would call them Super Bowl contenders.
Just because I don't think anyone in there is, like a shoe and favorite toe win the NFC.
Well, you know what? I'm gonna make you pick somebody right now, because I'm gonna pick somebody right now, too.
I'm gonna let you go first because I want to give myself more time because, well, I'm I'm a mean person.
You're putting your life on the line here.
All right, So the teams are basically the options would be like saints, bucks, Seahawks, eso You're not throwing that.
You're not throwing like the Eagles or Washington football team in there.
I love talking, but, uh, I would probably have to go with I don't I don't know, Like I want to say that I'm gonna say the packers just because I trust their offense more than I trust any other offensive. The NFC.
I'll go with the box.
Onley be well, listen, listen, They have they have the most offensive firepower.
And if Todd Bowles could get their defense together like he has in the past, it'll, uh, it'll be pretty Stop.
When I think about this and going down the stretch, I literally have no idea.
If you told me that down the line the Cardinals in the NFC championship game, I'd be like, Oh, yeah, that kind of makes sense like it's literally This is gonna be a fun playoffs for a on the NFC side because I think the left side is kind of shaping than their man.
The Colts could be a very tough first round matchup.
Yeah, they could be tough, but I think the top two are just better than the rest.
But I think the way we think that last year with Baltimore Man and Tennessee came out of nowhere, yeah, but then who ended up winning? It was the Chiefs, right? Right.
But I'm saying so.
I think I think you know.
Yeah, you always can.
Sports is an unpredictable thing, but I think if if I'm putting my money on it.
It's coming down to the Steelers and the Chiefs over there on that side again because I don't know what happened to the Ravens, but, uh, looking to good.
But what is your score prediction before we move on toe recapping some of those games from yesterday? Give me your score. Prediction.
What are we doing tonight? Yeah, my score prediction is 31 21 Tampa Bay.
Because I need that.
I need that minus 6.
So I like I like the score 50.
Where the hell did you get your over under? No Draftkings that let you pick him, bro, And I'm feeling a good game.
You feeling ballsy? I got mine of 46 I'm scared.
Well, I'm going 34 23 bucks.
Why not? Well, I will get I'll even be nice to I want your over and spread to hit us.
Well, way got to get the money flowing over here on blitz.
We need to start passing out some checks.
That works as Well, alright, not for Josh, but it does for my 6.
5, but yeah, I'm not that exactly.
I didn't parlaying brown chili sea ice parlayed mind, so I'm gonna need both.
I'm chilling on the parlays there.
Yeah, you're telling May I wish I could stop.
I'm gonna have to call 1 800 gamblers.
Pretty soon, we'll we'll move on to Sunday's games.
We'll start off with Dallas and Minnesota, a game that I definitely did not see coming.
I'm not gonna lie to you, but it was ended up being a very entertaining game.
If Perry still in here, I'm sure he'll have something to say about his his wonderful Dallas Cowgirls.
But well, yesterday it was entertaining.
Both offenses were on fire.
The running and passing games were basically unstoppable.
There was not a lot of defense played in this game, but we can get into some of the some of the storylines there.
I think one of them that's emerging for sure with the way Zeke has looked this year is if Tony Pollard should play more and it's gonna be very interesting to see what the Cowboys do moving forward because if you asked me, you know, two years ago if Todd Gurley would ever be on the move or something like that, I would have said, No way, Bob, Todd girl, He's been playing so good this down in the third.
And even if you ask me this two years ago about Zika, I would have said the exact same thing.
I don't know what's gonna happen to situations.
He has not looked the same since signing that contract.
I don't know if he still has some sand in between his toes that's annoying him from when he was in Kabo or if you know, the scheming is different.
I know adapting out.
They obviously can't do the same things.
But Tony, probably.
I feel like I feel like whenever he comes into the game, he just gives them a burst of energy.
It's it's weird, like you'll see them just running into each other for the first.
You know, three drives of the game, getting 234 yards and then all of a sudden Tony Power comes in and he gets like seven yards and I'm like, what? What's happening here? So it's it's definitely an interesting thing.
But you thinking Tony Power gets some more playing time here.
What are we doing? Yeah, I think they need to get him more touches.
They paid Zeke, You can't just bench him because he's playing bad because you're paying that man half of your salary cap.
So you got to give him some touches and he had a solid game.
21 carries, 100 yards.
It's not like he had a terrible game, but Tony Polar had five carries for 60 yards.
Like you gotta You gotta get that man the ball.
He had a long touchdown run that really said the Cowboys up nice.
I think you gotta split carries.
Zika is great and he has that contract, so you can't just take him completely out of the game plan.
But Tony Pollard is.
He's got a lot of potential, and they should see what he could do if he gets more touches.
I think the division is wide open for them now.
They should definitely get Tony Pollard more touches pound.
The ball was seeking him, and if Tony Pollard is producing more than he should get the majority of the carries but I think five carries a game is is too little for him.
It's It's getting harder and harder to defend paying running backs at this point.
It really, really is.
And I've always I've always been on the other side of it in a weird way.
Always like, Oh, I don't know why you wouldn't pay a running back, but you start looking at the contracts that they get.
Girl, he didn't work out.
It doesn't look like Zeke is gonna work out.
You're gonna see what happens with Derrick Henry.
You're gonna see what happens with CMC.
But I feel like every running back contract recently just does not work out like, what's the last running back contract you look and you're like, Oh, yeah, that one really helped re extension Adrian Peterson had.
But other than that, nothing, nothing since then? No, it's It's definitely, I think, don't get me wrong.
I think McCaffrey's is gonna work out.
Obviously, he's been a little injury plagued this season, but I think moving forward he'll be fine.
Actually, Dalvin Cook's might work out as well because he got an extension.
If I'm not wrong, yeah, e think he'll be he'll be a You know what the funny thing is? We're really going to say this.
I'm gonna come back in, like, three years and not a single one of them on this.
No, they're gonna be out of the league or they're gonna end up be playing on like the Jacks for some $3 contract.
I feel like every time we predict something, the opposite happens.
Yeah, but we kind of got into this is, well, the gosh.
The NFC East is so bad, like it truly boggles my mind how bad this division is.
But with that being said, you think the Cowboys can win because I wanted to.
I really wanted to kill them off.
It makes my life a lot happier when the Cowboys aren't good.
Then again, it's also fun to watch all the Cowboys fans hopes get up and then just for them to get crushed.
But I guess I can't throw them away because it's a It's a three way tie for second place on the only reason the Eagles are in first because they have a tie, a tie.
So I don't know what's gonna happen in this division.
At this point, I would throw $20 on every single team to win the division and just see which one hits, because somebody's gotta win it.
Honestly, if you get toe five wins, you might really win.
The NFL should change the rule that division winners don't automatically get in the playoffs because this is embarrassing.
But I don't know.
I guess they can. When I guess they can't win the division.
I guess they can.
You think the thing? They got a chance that you still think that they're out of it? Well, I remember seeing something.
I'm looking up the Eagles remaining schedule and they have that.
They got the Seahawks next time.
Then they have the Packers.
Then they have the Saints.
L Then they have the who do they have the Cardinals? Al.
Then they have the Cowboys government Week 17.
They have Washington E.
I mean, it's like what? They got one Mawr tomb.
Or maybe it's because the next three weeks they're done like Oh, yeah, you might as well not even get you.
Might as well not get on the plane there.
Are there gonna be 39 and one by the time it's week 16.
So I really don't think the Eagles, we're gonna win the division.
You know what? You know, Josh, I don't care.
We're gonna do this, E I don't care if we go along.
I'm looking up the rest of the remaining schedules.
What are we doing here? I'll do cowboys.
You look all right.
I got I got the giants.
I got the Giants right here.
So what do we got? The Eagles finishing at five wins, I would say maybe maybe I'd say four.
Okay, let's see.
The Giants got the Bangles.
I'll go with the win.
Seahawks loss, Cardinals loss.
Brown's lost Ravens lost Cowboys, Maybe.
I don't know. I don't know.
And then for the Cowboys.
They got Washington next week.
When? Then they got the Ravens.
Then they have the Bengals.
I'll go win without Joe Burrow. Go in.
And then they have the 40 Niners.
Yeah, I'll probably go loss.
And then they have the eagles and they have the Giants to finish.
I think it could come down to giant they might be Weeks's Let's look at the football team, though.
They got two Cowboys, we said.
Absolute l 40 Niners.
I think it's possible.
Oh, yeah, possible 40 Niners.
I'll go. Lost Seahawks loss.
I, uh L t b will be back.
Come on now and then Eagles Week 17 is the Maybe.
I think it comes down to Cowboys football team Giants.
I think the Eagles are done.
Yeah, I really think it's gonna come down to a week.
17 Giants first Cowboys Who wins the division? That would be so.
That would be the most important worst game of all time because it really like whoever wins is gonna lose in the playoffs like No, this is.
Can you Can somebody please tell me when a division has ever been worse than this? Because there is no way that there has been a worst division in this.
You might have a team win, win five games and win the division, and that's the thing that kills me.
Those They're going to host a playoff with the Cardinals.
Like the Cardinals, they're gonna have to play away at like New York.
Bro like that is awful.
Worst as apparently said. Worst.
Worst of all time.
It's not even close.
It's disgusting, is what I think.
You know what I think? Because of this season, the NFC East.
You have to sit out next year.
Take a year old guns, pension teams the second killing your teams in there.
Let's get back to this Minnesota game before because listen, we can we might be able to dio of the whole blitz boys episode on the NFC East.
Matt, if they if whoever wins this division wins a playoff game, I'm not even going to say I would do anything because knowing my luck, it will actually happen.
But God, would that be something? But the Vikings air now four and six.
Where do you think they go from here? Uh, I don't know where I think they go.
Maybe if they can win out.
Obviously, it could still be a They could still be a wild card team, but the NFC has some pretty solid teams s, so I don't know.
I think they have a chance.
But you're you're definitely gonna start racking wins together here I think at most being four and six, you can maybe lose one more game and hoping nine and seven gets you there.
I don't think it would, but I think they got a went out.
So I don't think that this, uh, was a playoff year for for the Vikings.
I don't think with I mean, they let the Cowboys put up 31 on them, so I don't think and they gotta They probably have a tough schedule the rest of the year to, So I don't think they're gonna win out, which they definitely would need to with the way the Cardinals, Rams and Seahawks were playing.
All three of that might make the playoffs.
I mean, they got to fix that defense.
They gotta do something about it.
Harrison Smith is isn't the only you're watching Mike Zimmer team not play defense? Yes, it doesn't make sense, because that's all you ever hear about Mike Zimmer's how smart he is with his schemes on defense and always has these great defense is.
But this year it's just it's awful.
It's ugly, but defense can't stop anybody.
And the offense is producing.
Like Dalvin, Cook is playing good.
Justin Jefferson is putting up record rookie numbers and they're just They can't keep up with the other team and it sucks for them.
They gotta fix that defense in the off season.
I think that's the only option for them.
It is definitely primary primary place to go, No doubt in my mind.
Next up we had my boys, the Pats, against the Texans.
You know, I'm a little disappointed here.
Well, this is not only because in one of my many parlays, this was the only game I got wrong and I would have one.
But I just can't believe they lost to the Texans.
I mean, I could have seen it coming, but, you know, they just don't have the firepower that they did last year.
And, you know, to answer mats question real quick.
Do I think the Patriots playoff hopes are finished? Absolutely.
I think they were finished for the year, even started, but that's that's a whole different story.
I mean, I'll be called a patriot hater, and I really fan whatever you want to say, but I don't think they really had a chance without like definitely.
I just don't see it happening.
But the one thing that definitely didn't happen yesterday was the Patriots defense stopping my boy to show on Watson.
And I don't know what it Bill Belichick has to kryptonite, and this is confirmed for any Patriot fan.
He can draft an offensive player, and if we play a running quarterback is over, It's done.
I think Cam Newton is undefeated against them.
Russell Wilson Is anyone against the Patriots besides that Super Bowl on, then? UH, don't even you're not.
They shouldn't ever be allowed to play the Ravens again, even though they beat them this year.
But listen, that's only because Hurricane Katrina came back and decided to hit the stadium on that last, just the last drive.
Because the minute the drive was over balance, Check said, Yeah, I get away from the stadium and they ended up winning that game.
But then again, we also see what the Ravens are this year, and now it's not looking at not looking to hop, so I think I don't know.
It was definitely rough, but what do you what do you think about about to Shawn Watson? I think that's the dog.
I love me something.
Shawn Watson, Especially what he could do without an offensive line.
And, you know, they decided to trade away his, you know, best player.
But, you know, Yeah, yeah, he's he's carrying them.
I mean, that defense can't stop anywhere on at all.
Met Damon Harris didn't have another 100 yard game, but they still were able to run the ball pretty well until Josh McDaniels just decided toe.
Let him just rocket arm.
But the rest of the game.
We're getting into that one.
But the Shawn Watson is just carrying them.
I mean, Brandon Cooks is a solid, received real will.
Fold has been great this year, but he's out of the pocket every play, making magical moves, doing what he does.
If they didn't have DeShaun Watson.
I don't know if they've had a win this year.
I don't know if they'd be able to beat anybody.
He's carrying them.
I mean, he had three touchdowns in the first half who was just The Patriots couldn't do anything to stop him, and it was just It was tough, but hopefully they could get watching some help.
Well, way spoke about earlier.
You thinking You think Watson's creeping up in that M V P conversation? E numbers close.
Yeah, he's got close to 3000 yards, 20 touchdowns, five interceptions, numbers wise.
He's up there with with the top guys, but it's the record that is really killing him here.
That's literally e.
I mean, you look at the other MVPs.
Russell Wilson's got seven win for his team.
The Chiefs, I think, got their ninth win.
And then Kyler six and three or six and four and Rogers top of their division.
And then you look at the Texans.
I don't even know if they have the ones that have, like two.
I think I think they're three.
Yeah, so if this record was better, I think he should definitely have some conversations about M v.
P because he's been amazing this year without his team doing anything for him.
But outside of the numbers, it's just no wins.
You gotta have the winds to get that M v P.
Sad to see what they're doing.
And I don't know what the curses in that division we saw.
We saw it with Andrew Luck.
Now we're kind of seeing it with Shawn Watson.
It's like they draft good quarterbacks in that division and then they're like, You know what? I think I want to see your career last five years shorter than it actually should.
So I don't know what the hell is going on.
If they don't draft offensive linemen and some weapons and I don't know, they got to do a lot of stuff, because when you're three and seven, even with you and with your quarterback being that good, you got a lot more problems.
I don't even know if they have picks because they gave them all up for you know what? You know what you made.
You just made an excellent point, Josh, because you're **** right.
I forgot about that.
He sucks to, uh my favorite part about the whole situation is, though they traded all the pics away.
And then they fired their coach and GM Bill O'Brien.
You guys, you're doing a great job.
That's almost a New York next move, because I remember the next drafted need a Latina on, then fired Phil Jackson five days after the draft.
So that's what you just did Texans.
You are now the Houston Knicks. Unbelievable.
Shouldn't even be allowed.
Let's move over to Cam Newton.
Something you said before.
Obviously, I'm not the biggest Cam fan in the world, but he put it, Zanno eyeing.
And I don't know how you dealt with this, because maybe it was different over in Carolina.
I think he plays solid sometimes, and in the late game situations, it just disappears.
They can't get it done sometimes.
Now, even I'm not gonna blame the whole thing on Cam because the Patriots weapons are awful.
I don't care what anybody says, you know? Do me a bird had a solid game and then before that, your Kobe Myers.
Let's be real people.
There is literally no NFL world.
We're on a good team.
They are your one in two wide receivers.
It doesn't exist.
And Alex, I don't know what you're talking about.
I don't I don't like him because I can't answer dress.
You have not seen me at the functions.
Let me tell you that because I pop out got drip, but I drip.
I can I am cultured Aiken dance.
Let's don't get it twisted, bro.
That's the one on New York thing about me.
I just don't have the Tim, and I'm gonna get yo, Alex, send me some Tim's for Christmas.
You got all that business money that you got? Send me a pair of Tim's.
So, uh, just let your, uh your boy gets in Tim's anyway.
And then the other thing about Cam, they threw 40 times.
You literally saw in the last game against the Ravens and pretty much all the games you've won this year, that running the ball is what gets you there, running the ball, playing off play action.
Why are you throwing the ball 40 times? Now? Don't get me wrong.
I know that they were down in the game, but it's on, but I don't I still don't care.
Damian Harris has been playing pretty well.
In fact, he's been playing so well that they activated.
Show him, show off the I R and didn't even play him.
He was an active for the game, which is fine with me because you want to talk about a waste of a traffic once again. Belichick.
Why draftniks show when you can have so many Michelle, am I right? But the Patriots, the Patriots offenses is just not something that is very beautiful on Josh McDaniels.
I think you're probably gonna take over for Belichick when he decides to hang it up eventually.
But it is very questionable when you're letting camp.
Who even you have to admit accuracy and throwing is definitely never been his thing, no matter what, and you're letting him throw the ball 40 times.
This is not Drew Brees.
This is not Tom Brady.
This isn't Patrick Mahomes. Russell Wilson.
There should not be a world where Cam Newton is throwing the ball 40 **** times unless it's against the Seahawks defense.
Yeah, I mean, I love camp.
Everyone will watch each other, knows one big cam guy.
But there's should never be a reason for him to throw the ball more than 30 times.
Even if you're coming down late game drive, he shouldn't be around 40 at that time.
Anyway, I don't know why they went away from the original game plan when Houston's run defense is way worse than e.
I mean, they can't stop anybody and they decided, Let's let came through it this year because they might stop the run. J.
Watt is not the O.
J. J. Watt. He's not going to stop the run every play, like he used Thio.
So I just don't get it. Can.
Even though he had a basically carry them in this game, he did pretty well.
26 of the 4365 yards and a rather nice touchdown toe.
And like you said, throwing the ball has never been cams like That's not what he's known for.
He's known for his his for some people would say, Yeah, he's known for his ability to run the ball and just play action.
Then he's got a rocket arm throw deep.
But having him throw 40 times across the middle out routes, that's not him.
So I don't know why Josh McDaniels is doing that.
It's just, Yeah, he's going to go back with his brother.
Yeah, JJ, what's going to the Steelers now? Interesting super team.
You're going to hear first people, but I mean camp does deserve a little bit of the blame, though.
That last drive he put them in no position toe.
Get a win so he doesn't deserve all the blame.
I think Josh McDaniels deserves most of the blame for that ugly game playing that came in there with.
And that defense deserves a lot of the blame to I mean, Shawn Watson singlehandedly.
I mean, he literally truck two guys on a rushing touchdown, so no, literally ***** them for real.
There's kids now.
They're at home.
He put him to bed last night. Zio.
That's just not That's a good one.
I love that is Yeah, that.
You know what? As the old Yankee manager would say, Joe Girardi, it's not what you want to see.
No, now isn't Alex. I know.
We go back and forth.
How am I to blame for that loss? I even picked the Patriots.
E think you did.
Yeah, man, that was That's tough.
I not only did I pick them, but I picked him in the parlay that I lost.
Don't blame camp.
This is not one of those weight again.
They are, you know? Fine.
I don't even mean you this time I I scream.
Nothing but great vibes, Alex.
The people loved me.
I am good vibes.
My Aurora is good vibes.
Those are S a T words right there.
Now let's let's move on, though, to another game that I thought I picked the upset in this one.
I was almost right.
I was almost there.
The Packers and the Colts.
Rogers did have a pretty solid game in this one.
He had the interception, but there was just a lot of empty possessions.
It was like I feel like sometimes they moved the ball and then just nothing happens out of that possession.
I don't know how they fixed it.
I don't know if you have to get somebody in, you know, involves.
Other than Davante Adams, I don't know what happened.
Erin Jones This year, I feel like he's not as involved, especially not even this year.
Actually, recently, I should say, because the beginning of the year, Erin Jones was popping off.
That man was built different, and now all of a sudden I feel like he's nowhere to be found.
The defense over on the Packers side is definitely not helping them out as much.
There are awful.
There are good, though, I'll tell you that.
But what do you What do you take away from this game? Yeah, I mean, no.
Erin Jones gave them no running game.
It all 10 carries, 41 yards.
E mean, that is not showing your worth the big money you want.
So it's first after man first after, but it's just it was It was weird for the Packers, because obviously we know that defense isn't gonna help them win games.
It's gonna be on Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davante Adams.
But they got off to a really good start.
I think they were up like 21 7 head and a half, and then their defense did what they normally do.
Let points happened.
And then the Packers just couldn't move the ball.
And I'll give the Colts credit.
Their defense is really good.
Blackman's probably gonna win rookie of Defense of Working of the Year over My God, Jeremy 10.
But still, it's it's Aaron Rodgers.
That offense can score on anybody, but they just they were stalling.
They were making some really weird play calls on third down, had a couple three announced late in the game, and then the Colts offense.
Just that was really confusing me, too.
Sometimes that have to Kobe percent in there.
And Dio Yeah, I don't know what was going on there, but Jonathan Taylor had a nice game for them.
I'm like 20 carries, 90 plus yards so that courts offense really helped them out late game.
But the Packers? I mean, they could go to the Super Bowl, but they can't have late game chokes like that.
They got game out.
Yeah, that's and that's, you know, leading into the next thing I know we discussed this before, but are the Packers Super Bowl contenders and I You know, I guess you kind of have to say that you are because they have Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams.
That connection is unbelievable.
I think of Erin Jones starts playing better.
It makes them obviously a lot better as well.
The defense struggles.
Yeah, but the I feel like the offense and keep up with a lot of people.
But God is they're just they're confusing as well, you know, you see games that you think that that you know where they win and they play so good and then they have games against the Colts.
I know, I know they didn't you know, playback this game or get blown out or anything like that.
But they lose this game.
They got destroyed against the Bucks.
They're they're confusing as well.
So I guess I say that they are Super Bowl contender because like we said before, I don't know who to trust in the NFC.
But I can't say with any confidence.
Yeah, I mean, you kind of just gotta assume they are, because they're still have Aaron Rodgers and have looked good at times this year, and I've had some really good games against some really good teams.
But, like you said, you can't trust them.
Like after their defense, how bad they play their often to stunk it up a couple times.
They're contenders, but not not.
I don't think there's any favorite.
I think everyone's gotten equals equal share of the favorite to win the NFC.
So I do think they're they're up there with the top couple teams now moving on to the other side.
I know I've disrespected the cold this year and I think it's more being Philip Rivers because I don't don't believe in him anymore, but, you know, acting.
Before we get into that, Alex e don't need to deflate any footballs for for the bucks to be great because, well, they already have the goat.
So listen, Deflate Gate was a witch hunt and didn't even actually happened.
They just wanted to get back to the Patriots for spot gate.
And I'm calling me.
I'm still calling Bs on.
If I ever see I ever see Roger Goodell, I'm throwing hands.
That's what New York is coming out that anybody likes.
Roger Goodell, man.
What? How do you know commissioners outside of Adam Silver? Just awful.
Absolutely, but are the Colts coastal ****? I like I said, I kind of disrespect because of Philip Rivers, But their defense, their defense is a one.
And, you know, I guess you gotta start.
You gotta start putting faith in them.
If they're gonna keep winning games, I would I think they're good.
Like they're just really good all around.
Special teams defense.
And that offense has been improving throughout the year since they had a couple of really bad games to start the year, but a defense is the big key.
I mean, everyone.
I mean, everyone thought Xavier Rhodes was done after he washed out of Minnesota after he had a good couple years. But now he's back.
Darius Leonard's arguably the best linebacker in the NFL.
That defensive line is just playing out of their minds, so that defense is their strong suit and their offense isn't mediocre.
So I think it z kind of what the Jags, which they had in 2017.
This is kind of close to like that, except the defense is a little a little worse than that Jags defense.
But I do think there there could be a problem if you get matched up with them in the playoffs.
Even for the Chiefs, that defense is really good.
And that offense against the Chiefs defense, I think, could take them.
So they're definitely gonna be a problem If they sneak into the playoffs.
You know, I was Josh might not be able to answer this question.
No, I saw a video.
I saw a video of manager after the world Siri's, so I just kind of already have an opinion on him because that man was wasted.
So I just got a Rob.
Manfred was absolutely sauced when he presented that World Series trophy.
But I I think I would go with Rob Man for being the worst Mr.
Especially with the way he handled the Astros, where he handled everything i e I'll run the fate on him as well.
Listen, hands or the hands of rated G everyone, it don't matter.
It don't matter.
But what? What? We're moving on once again.
And now we got to get We gotta get into your boys over there.
Josh, I know you're You're a happy man.
We're watching that game.
Okay, okay. No, man.
Getting a win is nice.
You know, getting a win is always nice.
You know, I would like for us to lose out, though.
Get a nice draft pick.
I don't I mean, I still I love watching.
That's what it was a fun game, man.
I mean, Detroit had 185 yards of total offense.
That's all they had.
Walker, you know, he had 258 yards, one touchdown to pick.
I mean, that was That was a good game for him.
It's just first start.
I mean, he's undefeated as a professional starting quarterback.
One under feeding the XFL.
Now want to know in the NFL.
So e think we're the only person out here you could say our quarterback is has an undefeated career.
So that defense is that defense played really well, And, uh, but, I mean, I don't want us to win a lot.
You know, I'd like to have a top five pick.
What? Fake family? And I picked that every week, every week.
Listen, I think I think you're just e think you're just dumb for that, though.
It's worked out a lot.
You know what it might? It might have worked out four out of 4.
47 but I was worked out four times.
You know that 500? No, no.
But see, here's the thing that's gonna make me absolutely cry.
If somehow I blow this lead in the predictions thing on and you e I had a really good week.
I'm a bad week again.
Always getting tight like may come down to the wire.
Well, listen, that That's perfect, then.
Because if I win this and the reason you lose is going to pick the Panthers every week, I'm going toe.
That will be some a one conversation.
Uh, let's look at this.
It was on their feet.
I picked him every week.
Yeah, I was like, I don't even care that they're 10.
And because the first time they lose the game, I'm gonna act like they're the worst team the NFL just to annoy you.
But back to your back to your panthers.
Walker wasn't president.
They did it without Teddy.
Did it without CMC 20.
Nothing when? I don't know how much you put on P.
Walker, but I know this is gonna hurt you a little bit because I know you don't want to happen, Joe Brady.
So you're gonna get some, uh, some head coach offers is here.
I really think he's gonna I mean, and they're gonna be some nice.
I mean, Atlanta could be a really nice place for him to thrive in.
I really hope that they chill on it.
They're like, you know, let's see what he does with the offense.
Next couple of years so we can have our full team and just let him do whatever he wants.
But I do think he's going to get some offers.
If I was saying my weight, not just saying that was a Panthers fan, but just like he's going to get some good offers, basically the rest of his career, just because of his resume.
But I do think he's going to get a lot of offers this off season.
With the amount of head coaching vacancies, there's probably gonna be.
So yeah, like you said, he's probably gonna get quite a few offers.
I mean, just off the top of my head.
Falcons Jets Let's see here.
Who else is gonna Jags? Maybe I Let's move on from McCarthy early.
Oh, my gosh, that would be hilarious.
Is well, you hear about a big of a sledge hipper.
Know what you hear about this legend? What he brought like a sledgehammer to, like a team meeting.
And like, I don't even know the whole story.
I just read that he brought his flat chamber.
It was like, Yeah, he probably brought that right after getting his massage or whatever the hell he does before three games on.
You know, the other team.
The other team in this game.
I have had coaching vacancy with the Lions.
I mean, they couldn't move the ball. Matt Patricia.
Another failed Belichick experiment.
Listen, I'm gonna give you I'm gonna give all teams the NFL a tip here.
Stop trying to hide her Bill Belichick assistance.
There's a difference between you know, and they say this all the time.
It's and it's fantastic, cause it's true.
Ah, genius like Belichick can't teach because things were just naturally.
And it's like, How can you not do this? You know what I mean? Very, very smart people can do it because they've had to learn and build their way up there so they know how to teach other people.
It's like Albert Einstein couldn't teach anything.
But you know other people.
You know, Matt, your math professor, you could teach because, well, he had to work his way there.
Stop trying to hire Belichick.
Assistance is not gonna happen.
I mean, obviously, Mike Vrabel is pretty good.
I don't know if he was assistant was like he played for the Patriots, so I don't know.
I don't know if That's an assistant.
But also now I can't think of his name.
Blind floor is gonna work. He's gonna work.
I'll say that now.
But other than that, I'm trying to help you out.
NFL teams and Alex, can you be on the show? And we announced the results.
You can absolutely be on this show if I lose E.
I'm really hoping it comes down to, like, the last week.
If it comes down the last week, I can't.
Listen, I can't handle that stress, okay? E don't know.
It is like, Oh, no, get well, you know what? You know what we'll say the last this last question, then we'll go into the prediction update.
But I think that the Lions wasted a lot of off Matt Stafford's career even though they had Calvin Johnson.
But they literally never, ever, ever had a running game since, you know Barry left.
So I think they wasted that.
You think it's time to finally blow it up and move on or they're gonna try to keep squeezing it out.
E think it's kind of the perfect time for them to blow it up and move on.
He's done everything he can for that team.
I mean, that man has thrown touchdowns with a dislocated shoulder.
I mean, done everything and they've done nothing for him.
And I think it's a perfect time because the Bears bears are gonna be bad.
If they blow it up now and in a few years, the Bears will be bad.
Rogers will be gone and W Jordan love the Vikings won't be able to afford everyone they have, so if they blow it up now and start rebuilding right now in the future, they could be in a great spot for the division.
But I definitely think it's time to move on from this.
Let's get some old veterans to put around Matthew Stafford and hope he gets it done.
It's just not working out, so I think they got a blow it up.
I tend to agree.
Like I said, I think they wasted a lot of his career earlier on, so at this point, moving on, trade into somebody that wants him get a new coach and their start over.
But with that being said, let's hear how tight this race has gone well, Hit me with the hit me with the predictions off day as I get the NFL, we schedule up for next week.
Last week we had a guest, Caleb, and he went eight and five with his picks.
So here, decently, Connie Man, who has been dominating all year six and seven, six and 76 and seven.
My guy, bro, What am I doing? And your boy who had a really, really rough start to the year finishes with nine and four back to back weeks O s.
So now the record is Candies.
I am 83 61 1 11.
We've but But I've been winning nine every week.
It's the past couple of weeks, but it's gonna change.
They're gonna fall back down to Earth Way still got about six more weeks.
So you gotta make it up because I'm catching steam, bro.
I'm gonna put so much more effort into these pics this week.
I'm going undefeated this week.
Well, you know what? We're gonna see that fire can continue because we're gonna go into our week.
Let's start off Thursday night football detect ins.
You know what? Here's the other thing.
Josh is what I thought.
Because Monday night we always predicted Monday night game during this segment, the one that does make sense that we save the Monday night game for our actual show.
Yeah, we should start doing that because even in the predictions update, you were not even.
Really, I think we I think we could both say that box.
We're gonna win this game tonight.
The e think we can agree on that.
So But we'll see what? I think we should start saving the Monday night game, so I'll say all of them besides the Monday night game.
But we'll start it off.
We 12 kicks off Thanksgiving Texans Lyons 12 30.
I'm gonna go with the Texans because I think the Shawn Watson is just solid.
Uh, the lions played absolutely terrible against your boys.
Uh, s so I'll go with the Texans.
You know, the lines tend to play decently on Thanksgiving, but they're so bad this year that I'm going with the Texans.
Okay, So so far, we're one and one can't lose any room. Uh huh.
Next up, we got the football team and the Cowboys.
You know, you go first.
I'm going with the Cowboys, man.
I think they're gonna have another really good game.
I'm gonna go with the football team.
I think they're all I think that the I think the D line is gonna be too much to handle.
That's one that could be crucial.
E Raven and the Steelers toe end off our Thanksgiving.
I'm gonna go Steelers the I think the I think I think the Ravens Time to panic.
We didn't really talk about the game, but I think it's time to panic.
And, uh, listen, my, uh, my call that Lemar hit his ceiling, I might I might be looking pretty good here.
Yeah, I'm going with the Steelers to e mean they could get their first loss year, But I'm not putting my money on the on the Ravens.
Next up, we have the Chargers and the Bills.
This could be a very fun game, but I'm going with the Bills because the charges always find ways to lose games against teams that are actually good.
Yeah. I'm also going with the bills.
Just don't trust that Chargers defense after the let the Joe Flacco put up 28 on them, then we got, uh, this game.
This game is tough.
The Titans and the Colts.
I think I went titans last time in this game. The Colts one.
You know, the cultures seemed to stop Derrick Henry, and I think when they do that, that's the recipe.
So I'm gonna go with the colts, even though I always pick against them.
If they let me down, I'm pulling the Panthers and never betting them again.
Now I'm gone with the Colts tail, uh, Titans Air coming off a really nice bounce back win.
But I think that cold defense is just too much to handle on A.
J. Brown has been dropping every past lately.
Yeah, definitely not what you want to say.
Then we got your boys, the Panthers and the Vikings.
You just taken with in charge? Well, yeah.
So Minnesota just lost to Dallas.
Oh, not yeah, they're just thoughts to Dallas, and we just put the beat down on the lions.
Teddy, Teddy, be could be coming back.
So I'm going with my boys for another wind back to back winds Panthers.
I'm going with the Vikings.
I think Dalvin cook is gonna have, like, 200 yards.
We'll see, though.
Next up, we have the Browns and the Jags.
Brown's fairly easy in this one.
Yeah, I know where I could take the jacks. Here.
Come with the Browns.
Then we got the Giants and the Bangles.
The Joe Burrow was still here.
Might be a different story, but without him and, you know, prayers up Thio Burrows.
Well, he was having a solid season.
It's absolutely sucks to see him go down.
But I gotta go with the Giants in this one.
And it's crazy how literally every week we've said like Joe Barrel might actually die this week, and he did on this was the weekend. It sucks.
Hopefully, he because I heard he tours like his a c l m c l.
And it's a more damage in there, so yeah, they said it was.
They said it was more damage than they than they initially thought.
So definitely not what you want to hear? Yes.
So hopefully the Bengals fix that.
But if Joe Burrow was playing in this game, I'd probably pick the Bangles.
But I'm going with the Giants because I'm not trusting Ryan Finley.
Then we got the Patriots and the cardinals sitting now.
Unlike you, I don't pick my team everywhere you can. You're **** right.
I'm not picking them this time going with the Cardinals.
That that cardinals run the offenses, but ugly pro.
But do I trust Josh McDaniels to be smart, or is he gonna let Cam go for 50 attempts this week? No, man.
I'm not going to take that risk.
I'm around the cardinals with you, okay? Okay.
I thought I had you there for a second. Almost.
I wrote it down, but I script that next time we got the Dolphins and the Jets calling with the dolphin d d.
Because the Jets are not winning a game.
I mean, I love Brian floors, but screw him for putting fits magic in just to come back and then say to A is still the starters the following week.
That's that's bogus.
But I'm still going with the dolphins because Jets are gonna go in 16.
Now, we got the Raiders and the Falcons.
I'm gonna go with the Raiders.
Listen, we might have to start putting respect their names.
Well, they're playing pretty solid as well.
Yeah, I'm going with the Raiders to Atlanta.
The defense is awful.
And that Raiders team is is really good.
Almost pulled off the win last night.
Next, we have the taste of Hill led Saints against the Broncos, and I'm going with the Saints.
Uh, see, I feel like the Broncos suck, but somehow put themselves in every game.
What's wrong? But I don't I mean, the dolphins, you walking? You're right.
I want I'm taking the hell.
And hopefully Jamis Winston gets a couple pass attempts in there.
Then we got the 40 Niners and the Rams.
I gotta go with, man.
You know, I do it.
You know, I'm gonna go 40 Niners on reason is Kyle Shanahan.
Loki voted against Sean McVay.
I think he's, like, four and one.
He's really good against him.
But I'm going with the Rams here, man.
That's what he said.
He's going to get it, but not this week.
Not this guy's like God with the ribs.
Then we got the game of the year potential here.
We got the bucks and the Chiefs.
I don't want to hear what you have to say.
Yeah, man, the bucks aren't on the same level.
I'm definitely going with the chiefs here.
With your boyfriend, man.
You know you want Thio.
You know, I really did want to go chiefs, but you're You're disrespecting that saying that it's it's that it's so easy here.
It's not the same, but they're not in the same.
Oh, no, You know what? Fine.
I will go with the box.
I'm going with them.
Yo, Brady, put the team on your back show.
Show him what you did so many years in New England.
And then we rounded out with Sunday Night Football Packers and the Bears.
The bears are terrible actors by 20.
Yeah, I'm definitely taking the spread for the packers here.
It's not gonna be pretty for the Bears.
Oh, God, This guy's I'm not.
I am not happy with how close is gone.
I was a big in the beginning of the e u were up by, like, close to 30 like weeks for you were you were up there, bro.
****, I'm just I'm happy.
I'm gonna come back.
Don't you know? Let's go.
Let's go through some of these comments, though, as we while we're predicting, you know, I miss some.
I'm s I'm not gonna lie.
Here is a good question, Herbert.
Joe Burrow was the only one up there with them, so it's gotta be.
You gotta be. That's easy.
Let's see what else we got.
Another. Once again from Garrett.
Car has been playing very well and exactly what you said.
I'll talk about him for M V P.
He wins, But he's been solid this year.
And, you know, isn't it kind of crazy what happens to a quarterback when he actually decided that you like him? E think, uh, you know, Gruden was finally decided.
Toe put some faith in him, and he's actually pretty pretty pretty.
He's playing better than the last.
Like when he had m v p buzz that one year he's playing better than he was that year.
Okay, No, listen, don't you dare disrespect God like that on.
Listen, Matt, I don't choke.
See, here's the thing.
Here's the thing.
I just want it was all part of strategy.
I just wanted to make it a little bit more interesting going down the stretch, E just wanted to make it a little bit more interesting going down the stretch.
You know, I didn't want to run away with you.
How do you know how? How boring is that? You know, it's not.
It's not like I've been winning 8 to 9 games the past four weeks, and then they look like that.
You know, But I've been picking bad games because, you know, I just, uh I just didn't feel like it, you know? Oh, yeah.
But I thought taking risk was stupid.
I thought it was alot about the winds.
It is all about the wind.
And that's why coming down the stretch here, I'm gonna pull away again.
Don't you worry.
I'm gonna put away took you took San Fran.
You took Tampa Bay, took Minnesota against my guys and you took Washington.
But you did make this the most risk you've been.
Take about you getting ****y with that lead you've got? You know, what can I say? You know, I started off, started off.
What's the word I'm looking for here? I start with the C.
I can't think of the word.
I started off, you know, easy.
I was like, You know, I'm gonna build this lead.
Then I got risk yet then, But don't worry.
I'll settle back down.
I'll settle back down.
We're gonna be alright.
Really are going to be all right.
But let's move away from the NFL real quick before we wrap up here.
The Lakers Probably one free agency.
Which is a very weird thing to say for defending champion of any sport.
Basically, but they got a lot better.
It looks like the Sol is gonna head over there.
They got Herald, which a report I just saw escape Bailey.
And, you know, I'll take a I'll take a, you know, asterisk next to it because we don't really know.
But apparently the apparently the Clippers didn't even try to resign him.
I bet he just didn't answer the call like apparently they didn't.
They didn't try to resign him So they're trying to say that, you know, they weren't doing that because they were getting Ibaka.
Who knows the real situation now? Don't you worry, Alex.
I won't forget that $100 barrel cable because I want my money when the Lakers don't repeat for the repeat.
Oh, yeah, they're not repeating.
I don't know, man.
No, I'm not feeling it.
That's another year on LeBron a d.
80 in no way. He's going two years in a row without getting hurt. No.
One bronze Father time A.
D doesn't have the workload he used to.
Somehow they got better, bro.
Marc Gasol, KCP Trez Dennis Schroder.
How is present in that in those playoffs, though that's not on trust.
He's not a guy that's supposed to go out there, that he had to try to carry them because they're too bad.
So he was the sixth man of the year.
He played like garbanzo.
Very. It wasn't.
We're gonna blame the sixth man of the year for not beating the Nuggets.
No, I'm not saying that.
I'm saying he just played bad in the playoffs.
You're gonna play six man in the air.
All you want the regular season, but then come down to the playoffs.
He had a much bigger role with them.
He's not gonna have that role with the Lakers.
His role is gonna be coming and give 25 minutes of just energy because he doesn't have.
So where where is he in the rotation for you? 76? No, he's, uh no, I think. Schroeder. Six.
I think they're both six, man.
I don't think there's gonna be a key sick, because, I mean, they both have arguments to be the best sixth man of league.
I mean, Schroeder led the league in bench points last year, and obviously tries won the award, so I think they'll both get their equal minutes.
I think Schroeder will probably get more just due to listen.
And by the way, I know you're a little upset about it as well.
How are we just going to give away shorter like that, bro man for Danny Green, for in the first.
And then we got rid of Danny Green, bro.
Like, and we got Listen, we basically traded demonstrator for two first and Al Horford, which I hate out.
However, that contract is the worst thing kind of dog ****.
Yeah, it's just That's just too much.
But man Lakers are I think they're repeating Marc Gasol down low.
That's the next question you think anybody can can compete with them.
Oh, not Clippers.
Warriors don't got clay.
So not the Warriors Blazers are gonna be really good. E.
I don't think they can hang with the Lakers, though.
It's but it's game time, baby way.
You know all about David time.
You know all about that.
But I might have to get a game jersey just because of what he did in the end.
I might have e think. Outside of that.
The sons could be good, but I don't think they're a threat.
No, who else is e mean? There's no other teams.
Nuggets are gonna be good, but they're not gonna be able to do what they did last year.
Murray's averaging 40 and Yokich is averaging a 30 point triple double.
That's not gonna happen again.
Clippers for the wind? Nah, bro, No.
What do they got? Playoff p and co.
Just gonna rely on that.
No, but now they got serves and quien surgery BFF.
So they got at that point because Rondeau said Miss me with that team, bro.
No, I I don't know.
Listen, PAB have a dog, but he should be coming off the bench as a dog.
Not, uh, here, starting p in the playoffs.
Yeah, listen, with Hawaiian and Paul George is it will be very difficult for them to be bad.
Would you? I tried them for us.
Straight up, straight up.
Paul. George. They need someone to run the point.
You can't have pap about their running the offense.
I'll tell you what they do that they're trading pat bad because I think Westbrook and Pat that first time they see each other scrapping in the locker room and build up that report, though you know, if they can get along that Z throw hands on the first day of training camp, just leave everything from there.
Just just move on.
That sits behind them.
That but no, they gotta get rid of Paul.
He's He's they Yeah.
George Paul Pandemic P.
You know, whatever he hit the side of the backboard, I mean, why basically played the same position and neither of them are really main ball handlers.
They need someone that they can rely on the run, the offense when they're not on the court like Louisville, Louisville is great, but he's not the same Lou will now.
He's not that little well that Drake was rapping about, huh? Yeah, he's not six Man of the Year, but he's not that no more.
There's gonna be a fun, fun Embassies in wait for the show during the NBA season way.
You know, we're gonna have to figure out how we do MBA picks during the season because obviously, you can't pick.
You can't pick every game.
Bythe end of the year record is gonna be, like, 827 100 that Now y'all Here's what I think.
If we do right, what do they do? They play Mondays, Thursdays, Prime time.
Yeah, Tuesday sometimes, I don't know.
I think we picked the primetime games.
But you know what we'll say.
We will discuss because we got to keep the pick segments going because I think I think that's where we make our money here.
Yeah, well, you know, you know where else we make our money, though? And that would be moving on here to challenge for us.
This is also where we make our money.
So, you know, I usually let you go first.
So I let you go first.
Again. Come on. I know.
I didn't say anything bad, because that's me trying to think, uh well, I mean, just really about Do you really think the bucks are on the same level as the teeth man? Like, bro, with that offensive, they get it clicking.
They say so put up a whole three points.
Well, you're gonna with Saints.
Defense is so much better.
So what? This offense has all the weapons in the world they got.
Go, Brady, man, they got drunk.
Bruce Arians mastermind on.
We're just going to say because this mastermind go there.
Okay. Amazing offensive coach.
Still, we're just gonna let one good defense then They're not on the same level because the Chiefs don't care who they played.
They're beating that.
Well, they didn't beat down there.
They didn't beat down the Raiders.
They barely beat the Patriots.
They won, though.
They're not in one. Don't worry.
Listen, not bucks they're not on the same level.
So it should be.
They should be with those the on paper there on the system.
This is four weeks.
By the time they play, it's four weeks in with Antonio Brown.
Evans is going to be fine.
God one's gonna be fine.
They're gonna be healthy.
They're gonna They're gonna be all best friends that were getting drinks at the clubs with Masson celebrating freaking three point wins over the Giants.
Okay, As you just said, it's a wood, but it's different.
It's very different.
The Chiefs, rarely Lou, rarely win by less than a touchdown.
Well, they went by a lot.
They got the greatest offensive mind.
Maybe in NFL history.
I hope they would on and everybody's, you know, New Boy Toy and Patrick Mahomes Bar.
Listen, I'm saying is different level that zone.
You see, if you say they win, that's fine.
Different levels. Disrespectful.
No, it's not disrespectful.
Bucks have not proven with the Chiefs have proven.
Chief only had one loss, and then they just beat the team last night that beat them others got beat down, lost first game of the year to the Saints, and then when they had their chance for redemption.
Got beat to a pulp.
They're done, but not the same.
Listen, when they win, I'm coming on this show. Hot.
All right, man, I want it.
Bring all the smoke.
No problem, I guess.
Ah, let's see here.
You know, I'll go.
I'll stick it with the with the last segment.
Lakers ain't going back to backs. Not happening.
They know they're not Lakers not going bro.
Giving Dennis Schroder six men in the league.
I mean, Harold gonna choke in the playoffs again.
They don't need help.
Get good, but for five points a game.
I didn't have time to put it up today, man. Friend.
A little behind, but not what you unprofessional for our own stuff.
Crazy way You wanna talk about the time you did your hair way? How hard it is and get this toe look like this. Come on.
I'm still waiting for the hair review on you.
That's a That's when I take the lead in the Pickens s.
So I guess we're never going to see it.
You know he's gonna happen.
Probably week 17.
We'll see it but keeping the picks that we're gonna hold on or we're keeping the pick segment up through the playoffs.
Well, crowd a regular season will crown a regular season champion May and then a playoff champion.
Yeah, give me a shot playoffs.
