Cowboys made two mistakes in the past three years.
00:00:29
One and to superstition.
00:00:39
Screw that bed way walking around the NFL like every is a business.
00:00:50
And in a business, you have a job.
00:00:53
And let me tell you something, you always have a boss, no matter who you are, you have a boss.
00:01:00
When you're in the organization of the New York Jets and you know they do that, they just start taking it.
00:01:12
This is running up the score.
00:01:14
Your one stop spot for all face sports.
00:01:17
Join in on the conversation by calling in a 6055627085 Here's your Jerry Napoleon Elo and Kevin Doblin.
00:01:31
All right.
00:01:33
No running up the score.
00:01:34
We're back.
00:01:36
It has been a very long time.
00:01:39
Very long time.
00:01:40
Uh, and I'm just I'm glad that we got back in here, but what I'm even Maur happy about Ah, and excited about it NFL seasons back? Yes, it is in full throttle.
00:01:54
The I think yesterday was the final of all the preseason games.
00:01:59
I believe or they're they're finishing up over the weekend.
00:02:02
I think Sunday Me, I'm not even sure I think I actually think all the games were played last night was a big boy.
00:02:09
You know, the preseason needs to go, you know, a blessing.
00:02:13
You know what? You can't be a bigger fan than me.
00:02:15
And I had no caring yesterday any of these games.
00:02:18
Of course, it's big for these football teams to have this final preseason game.
00:02:22
You know, we're talking about trying to get these last guys their roster spots.
00:02:25
And, you know, obviously this is their livelihood.
00:02:27
And yeah, you know, it's very important to them.
00:02:29
But, you know, just for the average fan, it's, ah, irrelevant.
00:02:32
Just get the regular season, the games that matter started.
00:02:35
Yeah.
00:02:37
So the teams are sharing up there 53 man roster.
00:02:41
They have to make all their final cuts.
00:02:44
Uh, I think it was either today or tomorrow that they need to have all their final cuts done.
00:02:48
So, you know, we've been trying to get into the you know, I guess you could call this a studio, um, for a while now, And, um, you know, it just hasn't been working out well for us, um, with busy schedules and and stuff like that.
00:03:08
So, uh, we weren't able to get a full in depth preview of the NFL.
00:03:17
Um, like we wanted to.
00:03:19
But we're going to do that today and ah, it's gonna come at you fast.
00:03:23
It's gonna be, you know, we're gonna get everything in the point that said, Hey, you know, the point is that we're trying to, you know, we get to the point.
00:03:29
You know, uh, you know the stories and distractions and schedules and who they playing if they have a tough schedule, I'm gonna tell you, if you have a good football team, you know, ah, whether a team is designed well to win games in the NFL and obviously things happen in the NFL day in and day out and everyone talks about their scheduling and do they have a difficult schedule? Do they not? If you're a good football team, you find ways to win.
00:03:50
It doesn't matter who you play in this league, and the league has been so competitive, and it's probably more competitive now than it's ever been before.
00:03:58
That it's just gonna be a fun ride like it always is.
00:04:00
And this is what Exanta for what it is, absolutely um So I guess we'll start it off here.
00:04:06
Um, actually, before I start, um, I'm running a ah pickem pool at my job.
00:04:13
Um, so, uh, if anybody wants to join it, let me know.
00:04:19
I will send you the details.
00:04:20
Ah, just, you know, direct message.
00:04:23
Our, um you know, instagram or Twitter? Um, at are u T A sports.
00:04:29
Ah, you can.
00:04:30
Also, if you have my number, you can text me or call me whatever you want to do.
00:04:34
I'm trying to get you into it, too, So really, I'm in enough pools, man.
00:04:39
I mean, one market, I know it will hurt.
00:04:42
I mean, if it's hurting a wallet, I promise you that.
00:04:46
So we'll start off NFC East, start off.
00:04:51
You know, this really honest.
00:04:52
You know, listen, when we come from New York, and you know, obviously, when you think of the NFC East in New York, you think of the New York Giants.
00:04:58
And when it comes to the New York Giants this year, um, it gets really disappointing, you know, pretty quickly.
00:05:04
And like I said, we're going to speed through these, but you know, for the new, we'll start with the New York Giants.
00:05:09
And, you know, obviously they made some upgrades and they're going to be a better team.
00:05:12
Yeah, but I've gone around.
00:05:13
I'm from New York.
00:05:15
Uh, and basically, I'll speak the giant fans all day long.
00:05:19
You could talk about, say, Kwame Barclay, you could talk about the upgraded offensive line.
00:05:22
You can we talk about Daniel Jones or the way he's performing the preseason.
00:05:25
You know, the point is what this team is that, you know, I've asked a lot of giant fends to name me three defensive players on their roster, and they truthfully can.
00:05:37
I mean, that's the biggest problem the New York Giants face this year is that, you know their offense might be able to spark a lot, and obviously everyone thinks with no O'Dell.
00:05:44
That might not be a big upgrade, but it absolutely is.
00:05:47
I think everything else is more important having a better offensive line.
00:05:51
You're going to see a different Eli Manning out there.
00:05:53
You know, people think that Eli Manning ah has come back to his original roots, but the point is that his offensive line is finally gonna be able to block for them, and, uh you know, they made a couple of additions that were, you know, clutch.
00:06:04
But unfortunately for the Giants, I don't see it any more than six wins.
00:06:08
Uh, you know, I'm not even talking about their schedule.
00:06:11
It does not matter who they play this year.
00:06:13
What? You know what their division looks like.
00:06:15
You know, the point is, is that what I see is two games against Dallas, two games against Philly, and I see four automatic loss is there.
00:06:21
And I mean, you heard it here right now, but, you know, and I could be proven wrong very easily again.
00:06:26
Anyone can win any weak, but the giant just don't have the same to keep up with these teams, You know, they might be able to sneak a winner two against Washington and maybe a couple of the teams.
00:06:33
But for the Giants, I'm looking at top six wins.
00:06:36
Yeah, I mean, with the Giants, You know, um, all I can remember is sitting right in these seats.
00:06:44
Ah, the night of the draft and the Giants drafting Daniel Jones.
00:06:49
And we thought it was hilarious.
00:06:52
I mean, honestly, Johnny things killed them.
00:06:55
I was shocked for the pig, obviously.
00:06:57
But, you know, at the same time, Uh, no.
00:06:59
Dana Jones is not, You know, it wasn't the biggest problem they had right now.
00:07:03
Obviously, the quarterback position I didn't think was an issue.
00:07:05
I think Eli Manning is still Eli Manning the upgrades in the offensive line.
00:07:08
I'm gonna be with the difference maker while his team wins more games than it did last year.
00:07:11
But, um, you know, they're not gonna be the worst in their division.
00:07:15
You know, that moves us on to the Washington Redskins.
00:07:16
I really don't see the Washington Redskins getting out of fourth place in this division.
00:07:20
Ah, they might be in play for one of the worst teams in football this year.
00:07:24
Um, you know, they just don't have enough, obviously, you know, they do have a dominant left tackle.
00:07:29
They're not gonna be having him right now.
00:07:31
And they have issues with him, you know, at the same time, I think I think it traded.
00:07:35
He will.
00:07:36
And it won't be until midseason, when this team is in a crisis.
00:07:39
And obviously he's gonna have themselves a lottery pick at that point.
00:07:41
But I don't see the Washington Redskins winning any more than four games tops.
00:07:45
It's probably be less than that.
00:07:46
Washington probably be on the better end of it.
00:07:48
And then it brings us down to the last two teams.
00:07:50
The teams that do matter in this division, which will probably cause a humongous debate because there's no doubt I'm gonna probably go with Filly to win this division.
00:07:56
I think talent on both sides how the talent on both sides that you know the translation wins hasn't played a full season ways.
00:08:04
It doesn't come down to the score.
00:08:05
The bag.
00:08:06
If you want to talk about just the quarterback, this is my This is my argument with, you know, people saying that the Eagles, you know, in this division like they're a good team.
00:08:15
There's no doubt about it.
00:08:16
Yeah, they were talking about the honest.
00:08:18
You don't get to the point with these teams And what was it like? What have they done differently from last year? Nothing.
00:08:24
So, like what makes them better than the team that actually won the division? I think honestly, you saw what happened with you know, the whole Carson wins and everything I know.
00:08:34
I know that they like even before he got hurt, he wasn't playing well.
00:08:38
So, to be honest with you, I think this, you know, and you know how Stay.
00:08:43
You know, obviously, if you watch the show, you listen to the show.
00:08:46
You know how superstitious I am.
00:08:48
I don't like picking the cowboys for anything.
00:08:51
Um, but I just think I think overall, if you look at this Cowboys team, this Cowboys team is so talented, though they so I'm not, you know anything away from the company.
00:09:02
When I tell you Philly's gonna win the division.
00:09:05
I'm just saying, when it comes to the trenches, both these teams and you're going to see battles The week is part of this team is their quarterback.
00:09:13
And that's Dak Prescott.
00:09:14
That's the weakest part.
00:09:15
And he's not a week.
00:09:17
You could make the same argument.
00:09:18
You could make the same argument right now for Philly with that being the worst.
00:09:21
But right now, when it comes down to it, you know it.
00:09:23
I know what the the Eagles have.
00:09:24
Arguably one of the best offensive lines of football.
00:09:26
The reason why I say I did you just say the reason why it's one off is because another team that shares a division with them also has one of the top offensive lines.
00:09:34
Not to mention their offense of line didn't play well last year. They still won the division.
00:09:38
They were missing Travis Frederick the whole season last year because of the auto immune disease or when I got him back.
00:09:46
There's nothing on the desk.
00:09:47
Dallas is written to have a great season this year.
00:09:50
What I'm saying is that it's going to be a battle.
00:09:53
It's wow, right, Ma e, I am so sorry.
00:10:00
No, but like, you know, obviously the question mark with the Cowboys right now, Is there their contract dispute? Obviously, with Zeke, he still has two years left on his contract.
00:10:10
It's gonna be an interesting That's would be, to be totally honest with you, that's what you give Dallas the edge.
00:10:15
But right now it's you know this thing Tony Pollard, is Ah, very formidable, formidable backup for Zeke.
00:10:23
And I think I really could put on the Dallas Cowboy pads right now myself and find myself, you know, running for honestly, I can't rush for 85 yards under there, and I'm not a fast guy at all.
00:10:34
So, you know, obviously, you know, the Cowboys have a very good front and again on both sides of the football, the markets Lawrence returning is a huge deal for Jordan Smith and Leighton Vander playing together for a full season.
00:10:47
You know, there's so much left to go in the season with barring injuries.
00:10:49
I mean, I feel like the Eagles have a lot of depth on their D line on top of having the talent.
00:10:53
You know, again, you're talking about injuries.
00:10:55
And, you know, one injury to this cowboy defense couldn't put him in a lot of trouble.
00:10:58
You know what? The Cowboys secondary got a lot better.
00:11:01
Ah, Cheeto woozy.
00:11:03
A is Ah, lot better this year.
00:11:05
He's gonna be a lot better this year.
00:11:06
He's got another year under his belt.
00:11:08
Ah, Byron Jones.
00:11:10
Stud.
00:11:11
Ah, eggs.
00:11:12
A viewer Woods another year under his belt That the safety position stud.
00:11:16
Um, you know, Then you then you look at you know, Ah, the preseason and Donovan Wilson.
00:11:21
Ah, third or fourth round pick or whatever it was had three interceptions.
00:11:26
This this post of this preseason, they had eight in the preseason they had eight interceptions in the preseason.
00:11:33
Their secondary got a lot better.
00:11:35
Um, I just feel like the defense was great last year and it got even better to be totally honest with you.
00:11:43
Eso You know, though, that's that's how we're feeling.
00:11:47
So Dallas, obviously.
00:11:48
And I'm gonna go with Billy.
00:11:50
He that? No, I know, but I understand.
00:11:52
I mean, listen, I'm just, you know, I understand where you're points come at.
00:11:55
And obviously this division's gonna come down.
00:11:58
Who wins the games? You know the matches between these two teams, So, yeah, you know, obviously, you know a lot to play into it.
00:12:04
Injuries and everything else, but I'm I'm going with Philia.
00:12:06
Feeling feel used Phillies, arguably one of the best talent in the NFC teams in the NFC East, has a tough schedule.
00:12:12
All teams have a tough schedule or playing the NFC South, so we might as well go on to the NFC South and talk about the NFC South here, Um, with Atlanta, New Orleans, Carolina and Tampa Bay.
00:12:27
Uh, you know, we'll go and I'll go in the order from bottom to top in this division, and, you know, it starts with the shocker here at United Carolina is going to finishing dead last in this division.
00:12:36
I think when you hear of a Cam Newton that's limping, that's a humongous concern you even talked about.
00:12:41
We've heard in fantasy football about how you know, uh, you know, Cam Newton is, ah, moving down and draft, you know, draft boards.
00:12:48
And, ah, you know, the point is that when you hear a limping Cam Newton, it's it's big trouble.
00:12:53
And that puts this offense in a very human state and not like, you know, almost freakish, you know? And, you know, the defense has lost a lot of key parts.
00:13:02
There's no doubt in my mind, you know, I don't see that they did add Gerald McCoy, which was It's yeah, but they just lost weight.
00:13:09
They just lost way too much.
00:13:10
There was a lot of guys that was a huge list of amount of guys that lost on their defense.
00:13:14
They're not the same team.
00:13:15
You know what their defense, um, is what's gonna keep them around, Really? To be honest with, you know, um, somewhat, you know, looky cle as long as Loki Gilly stays, stays healthy.
00:13:26
Um that defense is is on a whole other.
00:13:29
Told me weeks six about it, so Well, yeah, I Listen, I I'm not disagreeing with you.
00:13:35
Um, but maybe not in the fourth spot.
00:13:39
I don't know. It was on to our next team.
00:13:42
Obviously, it's coming.
00:13:43
It's coming down to the scenes in Atlanta in that division, but, you know, we go to Tampa.
00:13:46
You know, I haven't finishing third.
00:13:47
If the Bruce Arians is gonna make, uh, it's gonna be a very big difference.
00:13:52
It's going.
00:13:53
It's going to take her in.
00:13:54
That team is gonna be a big difference when it comes down to it.
00:13:56
And I think you're just going to get more production a James Winston and that offense.
00:14:00
Then you're gonna get out of Cam Newton.
00:14:01
And I think the defense's on both.
00:14:02
These teams are very similar right now.
00:14:04
I mean, look what Bruce Arians did to Arizona's off fence, and then after he left Look what happened after.
00:14:10
Yeah, but I mean just overall Like it if you really look at that, the way you know his 10 year in Arizona there, their offense was always good at what they move the ball quickly.
00:14:20
And I think you're just going to see James wants to be able to adjust to this.
00:14:23
You're gonna see a different kind of Jamis Winston.
00:14:25
I don't know how good like fantasy purposes and stuff like that, but no, I think you'll just see a better offense coming out of Tampa.
00:14:32
Then you will from Caroline. And that's why I'm giving the edge.
00:14:34
I mean, you're getting the third spot in the end, it's gonna be close.
00:14:36
It's gonna be It's gonna be like a, you know, one loss, one win, different kind of thing.
00:14:41
We should be going to the two teams that you're gonna get it again, just like the NFC East.
00:14:45
There's a two team race in this course in this division, things in Atlanta.
00:14:50
And to be honest with you, um, I'm not I'm not a big Atlanta fan.
00:14:56
Um, you know? Yeah, they do have Julio Jones.
00:14:59
I understand that.
00:15:00
But I'm not I'm not a big Matt Ryan saying like I I just he doesn't really do anything for me.
00:15:10
Um, my pick is gonna be New Orleans in this division.
00:15:13
I think just Drew Brees always just brings the firepower with this with this team.
00:15:18
I think their defense ah, is gonna be a lot better.
00:15:21
Um, as well, I just Overall, I think this is a very similar standpoint to the Eagles.
00:15:27
And yes, I mean, I'm gonna go where there have the same I do like Atlantic.
00:15:31
Is that like their linebacker corps? It sounds crazy, has nothing to do with either one of the offenses.
00:15:35
I think both offenses very similar, uh, brief has got, you know, the cameras and the Michael Thomas is, but you will be on that.
00:15:43
It's a little bit of a question mark for the scene, so it makes you wonder if they have enough depth behind that.
00:15:48
Obviously, losing Mark Ingram could be a big hit, you know, But I really do think Atlanta's offense is going to make some strides.
00:15:54
I know you're not a fan of Brian.
00:15:56
I've seen that Ryan do it before.
00:15:58
And, you know, I assume he'll do it again.
00:16:00
I mean, they made some upgrades on their offensive line.
00:16:02
Their defense there.
00:16:03
Linebacking corps is very young and very talented.
00:16:06
That's the thing like Atlanta.
00:16:07
I know.
00:16:08
They're dead.
00:16:09
Events was was young, um, were drafted players.
00:16:13
Um, you just see, you see talented players in their 1st 2nd year, whatever you see them and you, like, you see the signs of, like, I This kid's gonna be good you once you get to like 2nd 3rd year, then like that's when it starts to show.
00:16:30
So, you know, Atlanta has a lot of young guys on defense.
00:16:33
I think a lot of that's gonna have a lot to me.
00:16:36
That's really gonna be a showdown between with them.
00:16:38
That's what I'm saying.
00:16:39
I I I just I just feel like the saints are gonna edge them out by one or two wins.
00:16:43
I think it might come down to their matchups just like filling in Dallas.
00:16:46
You know, we'll go right back, and we're gonna head over right over to the West, and, uh, you know, again we're gonna just start from bottom to top.
00:16:53
This is just my predictions and what I'm thinking on the standings.
00:16:56
Uh, I'll probably come nowhere close because the NFL is what it is.
00:16:59
But, you know, for me, you know, I'm gonna take a stride here.
00:17:02
You know, I think Seattle's gonna be the worst team in this division now? Yeah, I think so.
00:17:07
I really D'oh, I I really think they could be one of the worst teams in football this year.
00:17:12
Um, I'm not a fan, You know.
00:17:13
I love Russell Wilson.
00:17:14
I know what he's able to dio but his he just got no help there.
00:17:17
I mean, aside from Tyler Lockett, you need me their number two receiver right now.
00:17:21
No, Right on the spot named the number two receiver for that team.
00:17:24
They just don't have enough.
00:17:26
No, I have enough.
00:17:27
Listen, I just I don't know what either.
00:17:30
I know.
00:17:31
It's not even like I didn't see much because I watched Arizona a little bit because I just wanted to see, I think they're going to struggle to I don't see this being, you know, it could be Arizona if anything to finish dead last.
00:17:41
But I think Seattle's gonna be in that area, because I I was just I was just interested to see some 100 giants to Washington.
00:17:49
Yeah, I was.
00:17:50
I was interested to see Kyla Mari Pili.
00:17:53
Um, from what I saw his first game, he really sings the ball like he puts a lot of muscle behind it.
00:18:00
Um, I just think it's comfort levels, baby, What's gonna be? I just ride, especially in this rookie.
00:18:05
Everything around him, though, we're talking like 43 wins here.
00:18:09
I I'm really not that this is really just almost a hatred for me. For Seattle.
00:18:13
I don't like the way their teams designed lost too much on defense.
00:18:19
They don't have enough firepower on defense.
00:18:20
I mean, even last year, guys like Sheldon Richardson, you know, they needed players because they were going out and trying to get someone like Sheldon Richardson, which had a lot of damage.
00:18:28
And he's not even on the team anymore.
00:18:30
So it shows you what kind of player Sheldon Richardson is.
00:18:32
You know, with all due respect, I mean that they weren't even interested in bringing him back.
00:18:36
But again, I think this team just does not have enough talent.
00:18:39
I think they have. You know, they obviously have a great safety.
00:18:41
They have a great middle linebacker.
00:18:42
But beyond that, folks, there really isn't much talent.
00:18:45
I don't know about the pass rush.
00:18:46
I don't know about the coverage.
00:18:48
It's gonna be scary in Seattle.
00:18:49
It's going to be disappointed.
00:18:50
Russell Wilson, We'll do whatever he can to try to win games.
00:18:53
He's the reason why they have if they do have any weight at all.
00:18:57
It's gonna because of Russell Wilson, because he's got no help on that offensive line.
00:19:00
He's got no help. It is receiving corps.
00:19:02
His running back situation is questionable at best.
00:19:04
I mean, Chris Carson's a great player, and so is the sharp any.
00:19:07
But again, you need a lot more than that.
00:19:09
You need the offensive line.
00:19:10
I mean, Chris Carson could be as good as he wants.
00:19:12
They could run the bull as much as they wanted to.
00:19:14
They ran the ball lot.
00:19:15
But at the same time, you know, Ah, the yards per carry.
00:19:18
Where was an absolute disgrace last year? And that goes on the offensive line and it continues this year because they didn't even address it by any means throughout the entire off season.
00:19:26
That's why they're dead last.
00:19:27
For me, Arizona's not much farther.
00:19:29
I think that just calamari shows a little bit.
00:19:31
Employees could get them a couple of wins.
00:19:33
Uh, after that first game, he kind of like it might be like really didn't show much.
00:19:38
I mean, he's he's got a good arm.
00:19:40
Um, it's gonna be interesting how he used his legs in the NFL, because everything is obviously a lot faster and all the players are a lot faster.
00:19:48
But I mean, in this division, like, there's no question about it, it's It's a one team division.
00:19:54
I just don't think it comes down to. It.
00:19:56
Comes down to the Rams Rams There were in the Super Bowl, and they're gonna get close to it again, of course, and they're gonna be one of the best teams in the league, guaranteed double digit wins.
00:20:05
I mean, the defense's they're playing in this division.
00:20:07
We've already talked about it.
00:20:08
It's nothing intimidating whatsoever.
00:20:10
This is It's nothing like it used to be.
00:20:11
To be honest with you.
00:20:12
You know, San Francisco always gives the Rams, you know, a problem, and I actually I was funny that we had skipped right over them.
00:20:18
I'm actually a fan of Arizona.
00:20:20
I mean, San Francisco this year, there's no doubt they're going to be the second best team in this division, potentially a playoff team.
00:20:26
Even if it'll centers around, you know, if Jimmy Garoppolo could stay healthy you know, you know, like, listen, but also at the same time I watch Sam friends offense moved the ball without, um Well, yeah, so I mean, it really is almost like a system, but basically, what I'm saying is he kind of notches it up.
00:20:46
We saw how good of a quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was.
00:20:49
Um, there's no denying that, but it's just the team around him.
00:20:54
You know, I I feel like it like you.
00:20:56
Like you said, I think you got a lot better.
00:20:58
Um, you know, And it just just this division.
00:21:02
I don't even think it's gonna be close.
00:21:04
No, I don't think it will be close by, but, I mean, honestly, it could be somewhere in San Francisco is gonna get someone's.
00:21:10
I think they could find a way to get 9 to 10 wins.
00:21:12
I mean, I really I'm not like in Seattle in Arizona.
00:21:15
I really don't think they're going to make strides, but I think San Fran makes the most strides in this division.
00:21:18
I think the Rams continue to stay on top.
00:21:20
You know, we'll move right over.
00:21:21
Ah, you know, what is that? The North nfc North. Right.
00:21:25
So the NFC North.
00:21:26
Um, this is a little bit of a shocker as well.
00:21:29
I do.
00:21:30
You know, obviously everyone's gonna probably plant this team in the bottom like they usually do in the Detroit Lions.
00:21:34
And I'm gonna do just the same.
00:21:35
I don't think the lines made enough moves in the off season.
00:21:38
I think they continue to have a mediocre offensive line.
00:21:41
Their defense is nothing intimidating.
00:21:43
They've lost a lot of key players.
00:21:44
Uh, you know, they're probably gonna stand pat at the bottom of this league.
00:21:48
And then, obviously, I got a shock here for you.
00:21:50
I think rebate finishes right after we've seen that Green Bay has got Aaron Rodgers.
00:21:55
And, you know, we see that, you know, it's a new head coach.
00:21:57
They haven't got been on the same ordeal by any means.
00:22:01
Obviously, you know, he's already had things to say about his ideas of practice, you know, and Raj is becoming almost difficult player to coach.
00:22:09
And if I was the head coach of this team might be looking for the next quarterback just on the basis that Aaron Rodgers is a very difficult player, personality wise, and it's really bring this thing down.
00:22:18
It's bringing the team down Green Bay.
00:22:19
That has nothing intimidating on defense.
00:22:21
I would not be worried about their defense coming to us.
00:22:24
You know, if you know, if the Jets of playing on the Green Bay Packers I'm not worried, and I'm a jet fan.
00:22:28
But I'm not worried about their defense at all, you know? Ah, so I'm gonna I'm gonna put him third.
00:22:33
Uh, and I listen, I agree.
00:22:35
Um, so far, I just two teams with the better defense is which is obviously Green Bay.
00:22:40
I mean, Minnesota and Chicago.
00:22:43
I've never been a fan of, uh, Matthew Stafford.
00:22:46
So, like I with him, I kind of see, I saw the writing on the wall when you have Calvin Johnson, you only have to do is just throw it up.
00:22:57
Um, it's got a lot more difficult.
00:23:00
Um, after Calvin Johnson left, um, now they lose Golden Tate.
00:23:05
Obviously, because now he's with the Giants suspended for the 1st 4 games.
00:23:08
Oh, uh, I don't think it's gonna be tough, but you know that this this division Oh, yeah.
00:23:17
Um, I I agree.
00:23:19
110% with your Green Bay pick.
00:23:22
because, you know, like you said Aaron Rodgers, is is becoming that guy, that it's like, Wow, he's he's really good, so talented.
00:23:32
But, you know, I just don't want to deal with his crap like basically personality and its president.
00:23:39
You're hearing, like from ex teammates that he was just not a good person, a pleasant person way to put it.
00:23:47
You know, you put yourself in your making your teammates, you like that.
00:23:50
It's It's just not a good vibe and clear the current teammates right now.
00:23:53
That would never have anything to say about it.
00:23:54
No, are definitely thinking it.
00:23:56
And, you know, obviously the head coach is probably got.
00:23:58
You know, he's got a lot of work to do to try to basically revamp this, this team.
00:24:04
But I see the slam dunk.
00:24:05
In the third year, we move on, we're gonna go right to Minnesota.
00:24:09
The Vikings defense again continues to be one of the best defense is in football.
00:24:13
That doesn't change Linval Joseph and Harrison Smith the size of great players and you know it's just built upon that and you know, Minnesota's offense was very, very questionable last year again.
00:24:23
I'm not a big fan of her cousins by any means, and Raj is definitely better quarterback.
00:24:27
But I think the defense of side of the ball is going to lead to Minnesota getting more Wednesday.
00:24:30
Everybody in this division and I'm gonna go with Chicago winning it.
00:24:32
I like the Chicago pick.
00:24:35
I think they have.
00:24:36
One of the best defense is in football.
00:24:37
I'm going with the same fantasy folks do not forget.
00:24:41
I'm just throwing this out here just for random thoughts of fantasy.
00:24:44
Fact for you.
00:24:45
You know that defense has got to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in a very important week.
00:24:49
I can't even quoted if it's weak, 15 or 16.
00:24:51
The fact is, that's got to take on the Kansas City defense.
00:24:54
I mean, the offense of Ken City in a playoff week in fantasy football.
00:24:58
It's not a defense that I'm gonna target.
00:25:00
Uh, just on that basis, it sounds crazy.
00:25:03
They might be able to get you points all year long.
00:25:05
Don't get me wrong, but that's a defense that if you're looking to draft it, you might want to try to get some interest in trading it.
00:25:10
And we all know trading defense's air.
00:25:11
Very difficult to do unless they got, you know, a matchup against, you know, maybe a team like Detroit Lions or something, you know, at home.
00:25:18
And maybe you want to get rid of him that week.
00:25:19
But you know, that matchup against my homes and company come playoff time? That is not something you wanna be a part of.
00:25:24
Well, ah.
00:25:25
Side note.
00:25:26
We will be doing our weekly fantasy segment like we used to.
00:25:32
I'm just going to a fancy fact out there.
00:25:34
Yeah, I love the bears.
00:25:36
I love their defense is as much as anyone.
00:25:37
I think they have a great defense.
00:25:39
Khalil Mack is one of a kind.
00:25:41
Uh, it's just when it comes down to it.
00:25:44
Uh, that matchup against Mahomes is just not a fun matchup.
00:25:47
It really isn't whether you like it sounds crazy, but it's the absolute truth.
00:25:50
Many of you folks actually thought to look at that stuff.
00:25:55
That's something you need to look.
00:25:56
I mean, I mean, I love fantasy football.
00:25:58
I've been doing it for years, and it's really, really fun.
00:26:01
But that is a huge fact to know that you you know, you don't want to play a match up like that.
00:26:05
I mean, obviously, anything could happen.
00:26:06
My homes could get hurt. We don't know.
00:26:08
I mean, but as of right now on draft day, I have no interest in it.
00:26:13
Absolutely.
00:26:14
Yeah, like, But they'll win the division.
00:26:16
That's got to make some strides.
00:26:17
I think that offense continues to move the boy on.
00:26:18
Robinson is such a great talent to there goes another fantasy factor for you.
00:26:22
Not forget folks that Alan Robinson on the Jacksonville Jaguars with Blake Bortles was a potential first round draft pick.
00:26:29
So when you're looking at your fantasy drafts and you see someone like Alan Robbins, all the guy hasn't played good in two years, he's injury prone.
00:26:35
Then pick up that guy.
00:26:37
Ah, it was that guy super late that's going for them.
00:26:42
Anthony Miller, Pick up Anthony Miller.
00:26:43
You want to pick up somebody like, uh, Alan Robinson? Take the risk and you know his latest He's going, but I think he's definitely a value in his 80 p.
00:26:50
Barring an injury.
00:26:51
Uh, yeah, that's the end of fantasy fax for me, But I'm just letting you guys know that, Yeah, the bears win this division.
00:26:57
I feel like Travis Key.
00:26:58
Uh, is gonna have a big year.
00:27:00
Um, Minnesota.
00:27:02
On the other hand, listen, Dalvin cooks back.
00:27:06
That's huge.
00:27:07
That's huge for Minnesota's offense.
00:27:09
I think it's gonna be huge for Kirk Cousins.
00:27:11
I don't think her cousins is good.
00:27:13
Um, and he baby.
00:27:15
Yeah, he he swindled Minnesota so much in, you know, free agency that, you know, Listen, I don't even know what to say about it.
00:27:25
But you know what? It gives them a formidable quarterback.
00:27:29
Um, but when you add Dalvin, Cook, too, that it makes it so much easier makes it so much easier to find Stefan digs.
00:27:37
It's just, you know, and then you have you no feeling as well.
00:27:42
Their offenses is very, very good.
00:27:44
Have the pieces to win the division as long as Dalvin Cook stays there a possibility to win the division.
00:27:49
I just don't know.
00:27:50
Your cousin's hasn't shown me enough yet.
00:27:51
He could prove me wrong this year.
00:27:53
He's probably like right there.
00:27:54
That's that's the point, um, of winning the division and me put in Chicago toe win the division because Kirk Cousins, Kirk Cousins is the reason why I picked Chicago over Minnesota.
00:28:08
I think this is a very close match up, just like the other three divisions that we have that has two teams at the top.
00:28:16
Dallas and Philly, Atlanta, New Orleans and Chicago in Minnesota.
00:28:20
That's how I look at these three out of the four divisions.
00:28:23
In the end, it really will come down to their matchups during the season.
00:28:26
You know, I feel like the wild card to get the wild card spots.
00:28:32
It's gonna be a hell of a season I like.
00:28:35
I'm excited just to see that point.
00:28:37
Hopefully, the Cowboys don't have to worry about that.
00:28:40
Um, but yeah, I just like I think the NFC is poised for Ah, you know, very high power.
00:28:47
Um, exciting season.
00:28:50
Ah, in the NFC, I'm pretty pumped about it, but that's gonna do it for the NFC.
00:28:55
Um, again, we're going to do our weekly, you know, round up.
00:29:00
I guess you want to say, um, we're gonna try to get maybe more than one ah show in a week like we were doing before the summer started.
00:29:08
Ah, you know, hopefully the schedules start to, you know they'll start the pan on. Yeah.
00:29:14
So come with time, folks.
00:29:16
I'm not one of those.
00:29:17
I mean, I'm not going out about during the windows o t.
00:29:20
Be totally honest with you.
00:29:23
I mean, it'd be great to get a show before the games would be nice.
00:29:28
Be awesome.
00:29:29
Or even, like, you know, in the beginning of the one o'clock games, if we were to just do something like that like we get, we'll think about it off the air.
00:29:37
But, um, that's gonna do it for our NFC talk.
00:29:41
You know, we're gonna get right into the A F C after this break.
00:29:45
Ah, for Sportscaster.

Cowboys made two mistakes in the past three years.
00:00:29
One and to superstition.
00:00:39
Screw that bed way walking around the NFL like every is a business.
00:00:50
And in a business, you have a job.
00:00:53
And let me tell you something, you always have a boss, no matter who you are, you have a boss.
00:01:00

Join in on the conversation by calling in a 6055627085 Here's your Jerry Napoleon Elo and Kevin Doblin.
00:01:31
All right.
00:01:33
No running up the score.
00:01:34
We're back.
00:01:36
It has been a very long time.
00:01:39
Very long time.
00:01:40
Uh, and I'm just I'm glad that we got back in here, but what I'm even Maur happy about Ah, and excited about it NFL seasons back? Yes, it is in full throttle.
00:01:54
The I think yesterday was the final of all the preseason games.
00:01:59
I believe or they're they're finishing up over the weekend.
00:02:02
I think Sunday Me, I'm not even sure I think I actually think all the games were played last night was a big boy.
00:02:09
You know, the preseason needs to go, you know, a blessing.
00:02:13
You know what? You can't be a bigger fan than me.
00:02:15
And I had no caring yesterday any of these games.
00:02:18
Of course, it's big for these football teams to have this final preseason game.
00:02:22
You know, we're talking about trying to get these last guys their roster spots.
00:02:25
And, you know, obviously this is their livelihood.
00:02:27
And yeah, you know, it's very important to them.
00:02:29
But, you know, just for the average fan, it's, ah, irrelevant.
00:02:32
Just get the regular season, the games that matter started.
00:02:35
Yeah.
00:02:37
So the teams are sharing up there 53 man roster.
00:02:41
They have to make all their final cuts.
00:02:44
Uh, I think it was either today or tomorrow that they need to have all their final cuts done.
00:02:48
So, you know, we've been trying to get into the you know, I guess you could call this a studio, um, for a while now, And, um, you know, it just hasn't been working out well for us, um, with busy schedules and and stuff like that.
00:03:08
So, uh, we weren't able to get a full in depth preview of the NFL.
00:03:17
Um, like we wanted to.
00:03:19
But we're going to do that today and ah, it's gonna come at you fast.
00:03:23
It's gonna be, you know, we're gonna get everything in the point that said, Hey, you know, the point is that we're trying to, you know, we get to the point.
00:03:29
You know, uh, you know the stories and distractions and schedules and who they playing if they have a tough schedule, I'm gonna tell you, if you have a good football team, you know, ah, whether a team is designed well to win games in the NFL and obviously things happen in the NFL day in and day out and everyone talks about their scheduling and do they have a difficult schedule? Do they not? If you're a good football team, you find ways to win.
00:03:50
It doesn't matter who you play in this league, and the league has been so competitive, and it's probably more competitive now than it's ever been before.
00:03:58
That it's just gonna be a fun ride like it always is.
00:04:00
And this is what Exanta for what it is, absolutely um So I guess we'll start it off here.
00:04:06
Um, actually, before I start, um, I'm running a ah pickem pool at my job.
00:04:13
Um, so, uh, if anybody wants to join it, let me know.
00:04:19
I will send you the details.
00:04:20
Ah, just, you know, direct message.
00:04:23
Our, um you know, instagram or Twitter? Um, at are u T A sports.
00:04:29
Ah, you can.
00:04:30
Also, if you have my number, you can text me or call me whatever you want to do.
00:04:34
I'm trying to get you into it, too, So really, I'm in enough pools, man.
00:04:39
I mean, one market, I know it will hurt.
00:04:42
I mean, if it's hurting a wallet, I promise you that.
00:04:46
So we'll start off NFC East, start off.
00:04:51
You know, this really honest.
00:04:52
You know, listen, when we come from New York, and you know, obviously, when you think of the NFC East in New York, you think of the New York Giants.
00:04:58
And when it comes to the New York Giants this year, um, it gets really disappointing, you know, pretty quickly.
00:05:04
And like I said, we're going to speed through these, but you know, for the new, we'll start with the New York Giants.
00:05:09
And, you know, obviously they made some upgrades and they're going to be a better team.
00:05:12
Yeah, but I've gone around.
00:05:13
I'm from New York.
00:05:15
Uh, and basically, I'll speak the giant fans all day long.
00:05:19
You could talk about, say, Kwame Barclay, you could talk about the upgraded offensive line.
00:05:22
You can we talk about Daniel Jones or the way he's performing the preseason.
00:05:25
You know, the point is what this team is that, you know, I've asked a lot of giant fends to name me three defensive players on their roster, and they truthfully can.
00:05:37
I mean, that's the biggest problem the New York Giants face this year is that, you know their offense might be able to spark a lot, and obviously everyone thinks with no O'Dell.
00:05:44
That might not be a big upgrade, but it absolutely is.
00:05:47
I think everything else is more important having a better offensive line.
00:05:51
You're going to see a different Eli Manning out there.
00:05:53
You know, people think that Eli Manning ah has come back to his original roots, but the point is that his offensive line is finally gonna be able to block for them, and, uh you know, they made a couple of additions that were, you know, clutch.
00:06:04
But unfortunately for the Giants, I don't see it any more than six wins.
00:06:08
Uh, you know, I'm not even talking about their schedule.
00:06:11
It does not matter who they play this year.
00:06:13
What? You know what their division looks like.
00:06:15
You know, the point is, is that what I see is two games against Dallas, two games against Philly, and I see four automatic loss is there.
00:06:21
And I mean, you heard it here right now, but, you know, and I could be proven wrong very easily again.
00:06:26
Anyone can win any weak, but the giant just don't have the same to keep up with these teams, You know, they might be able to sneak a winner two against Washington and maybe a couple of the teams.
00:06:33
But for the Giants, I'm looking at top six wins.
00:06:36
Yeah, I mean, with the Giants, You know, um, all I can remember is sitting right in these seats.
00:06:44
Ah, the night of the draft and the Giants drafting Daniel Jones.
00:06:49
And we thought it was hilarious.
00:06:52
I mean, honestly, Johnny things killed them.
00:06:55
I was shocked for the pig, obviously.
00:06:57
But, you know, at the same time, Uh, no.
00:06:59
Dana Jones is not, You know, it wasn't the biggest problem they had right now.
00:07:03
Obviously, the quarterback position I didn't think was an issue.
00:07:05
I think Eli Manning is still Eli Manning the upgrades in the offensive line.
00:07:08
I'm gonna be with the difference maker while his team wins more games than it did last year.
00:07:11
But, um, you know, they're not gonna be the worst in their division.
00:07:15
You know, that moves us on to the Washington Redskins.
00:07:16
I really don't see the Washington Redskins getting out of fourth place in this division.
00:07:20
Ah, they might be in play for one of the worst teams in football this year.
00:07:24
Um, you know, they just don't have enough, obviously, you know, they do have a dominant left tackle.
00:07:29
They're not gonna be having him right now.
00:07:31
And they have issues with him, you know, at the same time, I think I think it traded.
00:07:35
He will.
00:07:36
And it won't be until midseason, when this team is in a crisis.
00:07:39
And obviously he's gonna have themselves a lottery pick at that point.
00:07:41
But I don't see the Washington Redskins winning any more than four games tops.
00:07:45
It's probably be less than that.
00:07:46
Washington probably be on the better end of it.
00:07:48
And then it brings us down to the last two teams.
00:07:50
The teams that do matter in this division, which will probably cause a humongous debate because there's no doubt I'm gonna probably go with Filly to win this division.
00:07:56
I think talent on both sides how the talent on both sides that you know the translation wins hasn't played a full season ways.
00:08:04
It doesn't come down to the score.
00:08:05
The bag.
00:08:06
If you want to talk about just the quarterback, this is my This is my argument with, you know, people saying that the Eagles, you know, in this division like they're a good team.
00:08:15
There's no doubt about it.
00:08:16
Yeah, they were talking about the honest.
00:08:18
You don't get to the point with these teams And what was it like? What have they done differently from last year? Nothing.
00:08:24
So, like what makes them better than the team that actually won the division? I think honestly, you saw what happened with you know, the whole Carson wins and everything I know.
00:08:34
I know that they like even before he got hurt, he wasn't playing well.
00:08:38
So, to be honest with you, I think this, you know, and you know how Stay.
00:08:43
You know, obviously, if you watch the show, you listen to the show.
00:08:46
You know how superstitious I am.
00:08:48
I don't like picking the cowboys for anything.
00:08:51
Um, but I just think I think overall, if you look at this Cowboys team, this Cowboys team is so talented, though they so I'm not, you know anything away from the company.
00:09:02
When I tell you Philly's gonna win the division.
00:09:05
I'm just saying, when it comes to the trenches, both these teams and you're going to see battles The week is part of this team is their quarterback.
00:09:13
And that's Dak Prescott.
00:09:14
That's the weakest part.
00:09:15
And he's not a week.
00:09:17
You could make the same argument.
00:09:18
You could make the same argument right now for Philly with that being the worst.
00:09:21
But right now, when it comes down to it, you know it.
00:09:23
I know what the the Eagles have.
00:09:24
Arguably one of the best offensive lines of football.
00:09:26
The reason why I say I did you just say the reason why it's one off is because another team that shares a division with them also has one of the top offensive lines.
00:09:34
Not to mention their offense of line didn't play well last year. They still won the division.
00:09:38
They were missing Travis Frederick the whole season last year because of the auto immune disease or when I got him back.
00:09:46
There's nothing on the desk.
00:09:47
Dallas is written to have a great season this year.
00:09:50
What I'm saying is that it's going to be a battle.
00:09:53
It's wow, right, Ma e, I am so sorry.
00:10:00
No, but like, you know, obviously the question mark with the Cowboys right now, Is there their contract dispute? Obviously, with Zeke, he still has two years left on his contract.
00:10:10
It's gonna be an interesting That's would be, to be totally honest with you, that's what you give Dallas the edge.
00:10:15
But right now it's you know this thing Tony Pollard, is Ah, very formidable, formidable backup for Zeke.
00:10:23
And I think I really could put on the Dallas Cowboy pads right now myself and find myself, you know, running for honestly, I can't rush for 85 yards under there, and I'm not a fast guy at all.
00:10:34
So, you know, obviously, you know, the Cowboys have a very good front and again on both sides of the football, the markets Lawrence returning is a huge deal for Jordan Smith and Leighton Vander playing together for a full season.
00:10:47
You know, there's so much left to go in the season with barring injuries.
00:10:49
I mean, I feel like the Eagles have a lot of depth on their D line on top of having the talent.
00:10:53
You know, again, you're talking about injuries.
00:10:55
And, you know, one injury to this cowboy defense couldn't put him in a lot of trouble.
00:10:58
You know what? The Cowboys secondary got a lot better.
00:11:01
Ah, Cheeto woozy.
00:11:03
A is Ah, lot better this year.
00:11:05
He's gonna be a lot better this year.
00:11:06
He's got another year under his belt.
00:11:08
Ah, Byron Jones.
00:11:10
Stud.
00:11:11
Ah, eggs.
00:11:12
A viewer Woods another year under his belt That the safety position stud.
00:11:16
Um, you know, Then you then you look at you know, Ah, the preseason and Donovan Wilson.
00:11:21
Ah, third or fourth round pick or whatever it was had three interceptions.
00:11:26
This this post of this preseason, they had eight in the preseason they had eight interceptions in the preseason.
00:11:33
Their secondary got a lot better.
00:11:35
Um, I just feel like the defense was great last year and it got even better to be totally honest with you.
00:11:43
Eso You know, though, that's that's how we're feeling.
00:11:47
So Dallas, obviously.
00:11:48
And I'm gonna go with Billy.
00:11:50
He that? No, I know, but I understand.
00:11:52
I mean, listen, I'm just, you know, I understand where you're points come at.
00:11:55
And obviously this division's gonna come down.
00:11:58
Who wins the games? You know the matches between these two teams, So, yeah, you know, obviously, you know a lot to play into it.
00:12:04
Injuries and everything else, but I'm I'm going with Philia.
00:12:06
Feeling feel used Phillies, arguably one of the best talent in the NFC teams in the NFC East, has a tough schedule.
00:12:12
All teams have a tough schedule or playing the NFC South, so we might as well go on to the NFC South and talk about the NFC South here, Um, with Atlanta, New Orleans, Carolina and Tampa Bay.
00:12:27
Uh, you know, we'll go and I'll go in the order from bottom to top in this division, and, you know, it starts with the shocker here at United Carolina is going to finishing dead last in this division.
00:12:36
I think when you hear of a Cam Newton that's limping, that's a humongous concern you even talked about.
00:12:41
We've heard in fantasy football about how you know, uh, you know, Cam Newton is, ah, moving down and draft, you know, draft boards.
00:12:48
And, ah, you know, the point is that when you hear a limping Cam Newton, it's it's big trouble.
00:12:53
And that puts this offense in a very human state and not like, you know, almost freakish, you know? And, you know, the defense has lost a lot of key parts.
00:13:02
There's no doubt in my mind, you know, I don't see that they did add Gerald McCoy, which was It's yeah, but they just lost weight.
00:13:09
They just lost way too much.
00:13:10
There was a lot of guys that was a huge list of amount of guys that lost on their defense.
00:13:14
They're not the same team.
00:13:15
You know what their defense, um, is what's gonna keep them around, Really? To be honest with, you know, um, somewhat, you know, looky cle as long as Loki Gilly stays, stays healthy.
00:13:26
Um that defense is is on a whole other.
00:13:29
Told me weeks six about it, so Well, yeah, I Listen, I I'm not disagreeing with you.
00:13:35
Um, but maybe not in the fourth spot.
00:13:39
I don't know. It was on to our next team.
00:13:42
Obviously, it's coming.
00:13:43
It's coming down to the scenes in Atlanta in that division, but, you know, we go to Tampa.
00:13:46
You know, I haven't finishing third.
00:13:47
If the Bruce Arians is gonna make, uh, it's gonna be a very big difference.
00:13:52
It's going.
00:13:53
It's going to take her in.
00:13:54
That team is gonna be a big difference when it comes down to it.
00:13:56
And I think you're just going to get more production a James Winston and that offense.
00:14:00
Then you're gonna get out of Cam Newton.
00:14:01
And I think the defense's on both.
00:14:02
These teams are very similar right now.
00:14:04
I mean, look what Bruce Arians did to Arizona's off fence, and then after he left Look what happened after.
00:14:10
Yeah, but I mean just overall Like it if you really look at that, the way you know his 10 year in Arizona there, their offense was always good at what they move the ball quickly.
00:14:20
And I think you're just going to see James wants to be able to adjust to this.
00:14:23
You're gonna see a different kind of Jamis Winston.
00:14:25
I don't know how good like fantasy purposes and stuff like that, but no, I think you'll just see a better offense coming out of Tampa.
00:14:32
Then you will from Caroline. And that's why I'm giving the edge.
00:14:34
I mean, you're getting the third spot in the end, it's gonna be close.
00:14:36
It's gonna be It's gonna be like a, you know, one loss, one win, different kind of thing.
00:14:41
We should be going to the two teams that you're gonna get it again, just like the NFC East.
00:14:45
There's a two team race in this course in this division, things in Atlanta.
00:14:50
And to be honest with you, um, I'm not I'm not a big Atlanta fan.
00:14:56
Um, you know? Yeah, they do have Julio Jones.
00:14:59
I understand that.
00:15:00
But I'm not I'm not a big Matt Ryan saying like I I just he doesn't really do anything for me.
00:15:10
Um, my pick is gonna be New Orleans in this division.
00:15:13
I think just Drew Brees always just brings the firepower with this with this team.
00:15:18
I think their defense ah, is gonna be a lot better.
00:15:21
Um, as well, I just Overall, I think this is a very similar standpoint to the Eagles.
00:15:27
And yes, I mean, I'm gonna go where there have the same I do like Atlantic.
00:15:31
Is that like their linebacker corps? It sounds crazy, has nothing to do with either one of the offenses.
00:15:35
I think both offenses very similar, uh, brief has got, you know, the cameras and the Michael Thomas is, but you will be on that.
00:15:43
It's a little bit of a question mark for the scene, so it makes you wonder if they have enough depth behind that.
00:15:48
Obviously, losing Mark Ingram could be a big hit, you know, But I really do think Atlanta's offense is going to make some strides.
00:15:54
I know you're not a fan of Brian.
00:15:56
I've seen that Ryan do it before.
00:15:58
And, you know, I assume he'll do it again.
00:16:00
I mean, they made some upgrades on their offensive line.
00:16:02
Their defense there.
00:16:03
Linebacking corps is very young and very talented.
00:16:06
That's the thing like Atlanta.
00:16:07
I know.
00:16:08
They're dead.
00:16:09
Events was was young, um, were drafted players.
00:16:13
Um, you just see, you see talented players in their 1st 2nd year, whatever you see them and you, like, you see the signs of, like, I This kid's gonna be good you once you get to like 2nd 3rd year, then like that's when it starts to show.
00:16:30
So, you know, Atlanta has a lot of young guys on defense.
00:16:33
I think a lot of that's gonna have a lot to me.
00:16:36
That's really gonna be a showdown between with them.
00:16:38
That's what I'm saying.
00:16:39
I I I just I just feel like the saints are gonna edge them out by one or two wins.
00:16:43
I think it might come down to their matchups just like filling in Dallas.
00:16:46
You know, we'll go right back, and we're gonna head over right over to the West, and, uh, you know, again we're gonna just start from bottom to top.
00:16:53
This is just my predictions and what I'm thinking on the standings.
00:16:56
Uh, I'll probably come nowhere close because the NFL is what it is.
00:16:59
But, you know, for me, you know, I'm gonna take a stride here.
00:17:02
You know, I think Seattle's gonna be the worst team in this division now? Yeah, I think so.
00:17:07
I really D'oh, I I really think they could be one of the worst teams in football this year.
00:17:12
Um, I'm not a fan, You know.
00:17:13
I love Russell Wilson.
00:17:14
I know what he's able to dio but his he just got no help there.
00:17:17
I mean, aside from Tyler Lockett, you need me their number two receiver right now.
00:17:21
No, Right on the spot named the number two receiver for that team.
00:17:24
They just don't have enough.
00:17:26
No, I have enough.
00:17:27
Listen, I just I don't know what either.
00:17:30
I know.
00:17:31
It's not even like I didn't see much because I watched Arizona a little bit because I just wanted to see, I think they're going to struggle to I don't see this being, you know, it could be Arizona if anything to finish dead last.
00:17:41
But I think Seattle's gonna be in that area, because I I was just I was just interested to see some 100 giants to Washington.
00:17:49
Yeah, I was.
00:17:50
I was interested to see Kyla Mari Pili.
00:17:53
Um, from what I saw his first game, he really sings the ball like he puts a lot of muscle behind it.
00:18:00
Um, I just think it's comfort levels, baby, What's gonna be? I just ride, especially in this rookie.
00:18:05
Everything around him, though, we're talking like 43 wins here.
00:18:09
I I'm really not that this is really just almost a hatred for me. For Seattle.
00:18:13
I don't like the way their teams designed lost too much on defense.
00:18:19
They don't have enough firepower on defense.
00:18:20
I mean, even last year, guys like Sheldon Richardson, you know, they needed players because they were going out and trying to get someone like Sheldon Richardson, which had a lot of damage.
00:18:28
And he's not even on the team anymore.
00:18:30
So it shows you what kind of player Sheldon Richardson is.
00:18:32
You know, with all due respect, I mean that they weren't even interested in bringing him back.
00:18:36
But again, I think this team just does not have enough talent.
00:18:39
I think they have. You know, they obviously have a great safety.
00:18:41
They have a great middle linebacker.
00:18:42
But beyond that, folks, there really isn't much talent.
00:18:45
I don't know about the pass rush.
00:18:46
I don't know about the coverage.
00:18:48
It's gonna be scary in Seattle.
00:18:49
It's going to be disappointed.
00:18:50
Russell Wilson, We'll do whatever he can to try to win games.
00:18:53
He's the reason why they have if they do have any weight at all.
00:18:57
It's gonna because of Russell Wilson, because he's got no help on that offensive line.
00:19:00
He's got no help. It is receiving corps.
00:19:02
His running back situation is questionable at best.
00:19:04
I mean, Chris Carson's a great player, and so is the sharp any.
00:19:07
But again, you need a lot more than that.
00:19:09
You need the offensive line.
00:19:10
I mean, Chris Carson could be as good as he wants.
00:19:12
They could run the bull as much as they wanted to.
00:19:14
They ran the ball lot.
00:19:15
But at the same time, you know, Ah, the yards per carry.
00:19:18
Where was an absolute disgrace last year? And that goes on the offensive line and it continues this year because they didn't even address it by any means throughout the entire off season.
00:19:26
That's why they're dead last.
00:19:27
For me, Arizona's not much farther.
00:19:29
I think that just calamari shows a little bit.
00:19:31
Employees could get them a couple of wins.
00:19:33
Uh, after that first game, he kind of like it might be like really didn't show much.
00:19:38
I mean, he's he's got a good arm.
00:19:40
Um, it's gonna be interesting how he used his legs in the NFL, because everything is obviously a lot faster and all the players are a lot faster.
00:19:48
But I mean, in this division, like, there's no question about it, it's It's a one team division.
00:19:54
I just don't think it comes down to. It.
00:19:56
Comes down to the Rams Rams There were in the Super Bowl, and they're gonna get close to it again, of course, and they're gonna be one of the best teams in the league, guaranteed double digit wins.
00:20:05
I mean, the defense's they're playing in this division.
00:20:07
We've already talked about it.
00:20:08
It's nothing intimidating whatsoever.
00:20:10
This is It's nothing like it used to be.
00:20:11
To be honest with you.
00:20:12
You know, San Francisco always gives the Rams, you know, a problem, and I actually I was funny that we had skipped right over them.
00:20:18
I'm actually a fan of Arizona.
00:20:20
I mean, San Francisco this year, there's no doubt they're going to be the second best team in this division, potentially a playoff team.
00:20:26
Even if it'll centers around, you know, if Jimmy Garoppolo could stay healthy you know, you know, like, listen, but also at the same time I watch Sam friends offense moved the ball without, um Well, yeah, so I mean, it really is almost like a system, but basically, what I'm saying is he kind of notches it up.
00:20:46
We saw how good of a quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was.
00:20:49
Um, there's no denying that, but it's just the team around him.
00:20:54
You know, I I feel like it like you.
00:20:56
Like you said, I think you got a lot better.
00:20:58
Um, you know, And it just just this division.
00:21:02
I don't even think it's gonna be close.
00:21:04
No, I don't think it will be close by, but, I mean, honestly, it could be somewhere in San Francisco is gonna get someone's.
00:21:10
I think they could find a way to get 9 to 10 wins.
00:21:12
I mean, I really I'm not like in Seattle in Arizona.
00:21:15
I really don't think they're going to make strides, but I think San Fran makes the most strides in this division.
00:21:18
I think the Rams continue to stay on top.
00:21:20
You know, we'll move right over.
00:21:21
Ah, you know, what is that? The North nfc North. Right.
00:21:25
So the NFC North.
00:21:26
Um, this is a little bit of a shocker as well.
00:21:29
I do.
00:21:30
You know, obviously everyone's gonna probably plant this team in the bottom like they usually do in the Detroit Lions.
00:21:34
And I'm gonna do just the same.
00:21:35
I don't think the lines made enough moves in the off season.
00:21:38
I think they continue to have a mediocre offensive line.
00:21:41
Their defense is nothing intimidating.
00:21:43
They've lost a lot of key players.
00:21:44
Uh, you know, they're probably gonna stand pat at the bottom of this league.
00:21:48
And then, obviously, I got a shock here for you.
00:21:50
I think rebate finishes right after we've seen that Green Bay has got Aaron Rodgers.
00:21:55
And, you know, we see that, you know, it's a new head coach.
00:21:57
They haven't got been on the same ordeal by any means.
00:22:01
Obviously, you know, he's already had things to say about his ideas of practice, you know, and Raj is becoming almost difficult player to coach.
00:22:09
And if I was the head coach of this team might be looking for the next quarterback just on the basis that Aaron Rodgers is a very difficult player, personality wise, and it's really bring this thing down.
00:22:18
It's bringing the team down Green Bay.
00:22:19
That has nothing intimidating on defense.
00:22:21
I would not be worried about their defense coming to us.
00:22:24
You know, if you know, if the Jets of playing on the Green Bay Packers I'm not worried, and I'm a jet fan.
00:22:28
But I'm not worried about their defense at all, you know? Ah, so I'm gonna I'm gonna put him third.
00:22:33
Uh, and I listen, I agree.
00:22:35
Um, so far, I just two teams with the better defense is which is obviously Green Bay.
00:22:40
I mean, Minnesota and Chicago.
00:22:43
I've never been a fan of, uh, Matthew Stafford.
00:22:46
So, like I with him, I kind of see, I saw the writing on the wall when you have Calvin Johnson, you only have to do is just throw it up.
00:22:57
Um, it's got a lot more difficult.
00:23:00
Um, after Calvin Johnson left, um, now they lose Golden Tate.
00:23:05
Obviously, because now he's with the Giants suspended for the 1st 4 games.
00:23:08
Oh, uh, I don't think it's gonna be tough, but you know that this this division Oh, yeah.
00:23:17
Um, I I agree.
00:23:19
110% with your Green Bay pick.
00:23:22
because, you know, like you said Aaron Rodgers, is is becoming that guy, that it's like, Wow, he's he's really good, so talented.
00:23:32
But, you know, I just don't want to deal with his crap like basically personality and its president.
00:23:39
You're hearing, like from ex teammates that he was just not a good person, a pleasant person way to put it.
00:23:47
You know, you put yourself in your making your teammates, you like that.
00:23:50
It's It's just not a good vibe and clear the current teammates right now.
00:23:53
That would never have anything to say about it.
00:23:54
No, are definitely thinking it.
00:23:56
And, you know, obviously the head coach is probably got.
00:23:58
You know, he's got a lot of work to do to try to basically revamp this, this team.
00:24:04
But I see the slam dunk.
00:24:05
In the third year, we move on, we're gonna go right to Minnesota.
00:24:09
The Vikings defense again continues to be one of the best defense is in football.
00:24:13
That doesn't change Linval Joseph and Harrison Smith the size of great players and you know it's just built upon that and you know, Minnesota's offense was very, very questionable last year again.
00:24:23
I'm not a big fan of her cousins by any means, and Raj is definitely better quarterback.
00:24:27
But I think the defense of side of the ball is going to lead to Minnesota getting more Wednesday.
00:24:30
Everybody in this division and I'm gonna go with Chicago winning it.
00:24:32
I like the Chicago pick.
00:24:35
I think they have.
00:24:36
One of the best defense is in football.
00:24:37
I'm going with the same fantasy folks do not forget.
00:24:41
I'm just throwing this out here just for random thoughts of fantasy.
00:24:44
Fact for you.
00:24:45
You know that defense has got to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in a very important week.
00:24:49
I can't even quoted if it's weak, 15 or 16.
00:24:51
The fact is, that's got to take on the Kansas City defense.
00:24:54
I mean, the offense of Ken City in a playoff week in fantasy football.
00:24:58
It's not a defense that I'm gonna target.
00:25:00
Uh, just on that basis, it sounds crazy.
00:25:03
They might be able to get you points all year long.
00:25:05
Don't get me wrong, but that's a defense that if you're looking to draft it, you might want to try to get some interest in trading it.
00:25:10
And we all know trading defense's air.
00:25:11
Very difficult to do unless they got, you know, a matchup against, you know, maybe a team like Detroit Lions or something, you know, at home.
00:25:18
And maybe you want to get rid of him that week.
00:25:19
But you know, that matchup against my homes and company come playoff time? That is not something you wanna be a part of.
00:25:24
Well, ah.
00:25:25
Side note.
00:25:26
We will be doing our weekly fantasy segment like we used to.
00:25:32
I'm just going to a fancy fact out there.
00:25:34
Yeah, I love the bears.
00:25:36
I love their defense is as much as anyone.
00:25:37
I think they have a great defense.
00:25:39
Khalil Mack is one of a kind.
00:25:41
Uh, it's just when it comes down to it.
00:25:44
Uh, that matchup against Mahomes is just not a fun matchup.
00:25:47
It really isn't whether you like it sounds crazy, but it's the absolute truth.
00:25:50
Many of you folks actually thought to look at that stuff.
00:25:55
That's something you need to look.
00:25:56
I mean, I mean, I love fantasy football.
00:25:58
I've been doing it for years, and it's really, really fun.
00:26:01
But that is a huge fact to know that you you know, you don't want to play a match up like that.
00:26:05
I mean, obviously, anything could happen.
00:26:06
My homes could get hurt. We don't know.
00:26:08
I mean, but as of right now on draft day, I have no interest in it.
00:26:13
Absolutely.
00:26:14
Yeah, like, But they'll win the division.
00:26:16
That's got to make some strides.
00:26:17
I think that offense continues to move the boy on.
00:26:18
Robinson is such a great talent to there goes another fantasy factor for you.
00:26:22
Not forget folks that Alan Robinson on the Jacksonville Jaguars with Blake Bortles was a potential first round draft pick.
00:26:29
So when you're looking at your fantasy drafts and you see someone like Alan Robbins, all the guy hasn't played good in two years, he's injury prone.
00:26:35
Then pick up that guy.
00:26:37
Ah, it was that guy super late that's going for them.
00:26:42
Anthony Miller, Pick up Anthony Miller.
00:26:43
You want to pick up somebody like, uh, Alan Robinson? Take the risk and you know his latest He's going, but I think he's definitely a value in his 80 p.
00:26:50
Barring an injury.
00:26:51
Uh, yeah, that's the end of fantasy fax for me, But I'm just letting you guys know that, Yeah, the bears win this division.
00:26:57
I feel like Travis Key.
00:26:58
Uh, is gonna have a big year.
00:27:00
Um, Minnesota.
00:27:02
On the other hand, listen, Dalvin cooks back.
00:27:06
That's huge.
00:27:07
That's huge for Minnesota's offense.
00:27:09
I think it's gonna be huge for Kirk Cousins.
00:27:11
I don't think her cousins is good.
00:27:13
Um, and he baby.
00:27:15
Yeah, he he swindled Minnesota so much in, you know, free agency that, you know, Listen, I don't even know what to say about it.
00:27:25
But you know what? It gives them a formidable quarterback.
00:27:29
Um, but when you add Dalvin, Cook, too, that it makes it so much easier makes it so much easier to find Stefan digs.
00:27:37
It's just, you know, and then you have you no feeling as well.
00:27:42
Their offenses is very, very good.
00:27:44
Have the pieces to win the division as long as Dalvin Cook stays there a possibility to win the division.
00:27:49
I just don't know.
00:27:50
Your cousin's hasn't shown me enough yet.
00:27:51
He could prove me wrong this year.
00:27:53
He's probably like right there.
00:27:54
That's that's the point, um, of winning the division and me put in Chicago toe win the division because Kirk Cousins, Kirk Cousins is the reason why I picked Chicago over Minnesota.
00:28:08
I think this is a very close match up, just like the other three divisions that we have that has two teams at the top.
00:28:16
Dallas and Philly, Atlanta, New Orleans and Chicago in Minnesota.
00:28:20
That's how I look at these three out of the four divisions.
00:28:23
In the end, it really will come down to their matchups during the season.
00:28:26
You know, I feel like the wild card to get the wild card spots.
00:28:32
It's gonna be a hell of a season I like.
00:28:35
I'm excited just to see that point.
00:28:37
Hopefully, the Cowboys don't have to worry about that.
00:28:40
Um, but yeah, I just like I think the NFC is poised for Ah, you know, very high power.
00:28:47
Um, exciting season.
00:28:50
Ah, in the NFC, I'm pretty pumped about it, but that's gonna do it for the NFC.
00:28:55
Um, again, we're going to do our weekly, you know, round up.
00:29:00
I guess you want to say, um, we're gonna try to get maybe more than one ah show in a week like we were doing before the summer started.
00:29:08
Ah, you know, hopefully the schedules start to, you know they'll start the pan on. Yeah.
00:29:14
So come with time, folks.
00:29:16
I'm not one of those.
00:29:17
I mean, I'm not going out about during the windows o t.
00:29:20
Be totally honest with you.
00:29:23
I mean, it'd be great to get a show before the games would be nice.
00:29:28
Be awesome.
00:29:29
Or even, like, you know, in the beginning of the one o'clock games, if we were to just do something like that like we get, we'll think about it off the air.
00:29:37
But, um, that's gonna do it for our NFC talk.
00:29:41
You know, we're gonna get right into the A F C after this break.
00:29:45
Ah, for Sportscaster.
00:29:46
