And welcome back.
How about, um, as in How about them cowboys? Boo.
You already know the deal, man. Keep McPherson.
It is Monday, December 7th, and we are going to take a look.
Uh, the games yesterday, the scores yesterday, the news from yesterday and backtrack a little bit to talk about.
I guess what I thought was going on or my picks or whatever.
You can't predict the NFL, man. I didn't hit on any parlays.
I'm done betting officially done betting on this season unless there's something wild out there.
Some of these spreads could have saw coming.
Like the Jets? Maybe, but we'll talk about it first.
I got to start with your Dallas Cowboys.
Um, we didn't lose yesterday.
It's always fun to have a Sunday when the Cowboys don't lose.
It is always fun.
Toe have ah, Sunday when the Cowboys don't lose, but they didn't play.
So without a team to play is easy to not lose.
But you get what I'm saying.
You can enjoy the NFL.
You can watch and, uh, not have toe worry so much about your team, especially this current team, which is no good.
This current team, which is three and eight things current team, which is fourth place in the division.
This current team which plays tomorrow.
And, man, when you look at the rest of the NFC East, there was a promotion for draftkings.
They probably made bank off this.
There was a parlay boost in draftkings where it was called the NFC Beast parlay.
And the parley was for all three.
No, all four NFC East teams to lose.
If you put money on the Giants, lose the Eagles to lose, the Redskins lose tonight and the Cowboys lose tomorrow.
If you put that bet down which I didn't put that bed, I knew it wasn't gonna happen, because that's how the NFL is.
But if you put that bet down, you already lost money because the Giants figured out how to win yesterday.
The Eagles lost, but they battled.
The Redskins should have some type of a chance tonight, but I expect them to lose him for fantasy reasons.
I'm putting it out there.
I need Ben Roethlisberger toe.
Have about 40 points.
I need juju Smith Schuster to get at least 15 Mawr like 2025 Dion Deontay Johnson at least 15 20.
If I could get 25 out of Juju and Deontay, that's 50 and then another 40 close to 50 from Ben Roethlisberger.
I'll be in the playoffs.
My team had a rough year this year.
Fantasy and real life.
Uh, my team right now is 56 and one.
Yeah, a stupid tie.
I don't even really want to talk about it.
But a stupid tie is what will probably keep me out of the playoffs unless the Steelers ball tonight and I need them toe all the way ball.
I need them to put up like 40 points.
I hope it's a high scoring event, and they do it.
But let's get back to the NFC East.
Something I realized is that the NFC East right people call it the NFC least the worst division in football.
Well, that worst division in football is now relying on all backup quarterbacks.
Let's let's break it down, starting with your Dallas Cowboys.
Dak Prescott goes down, breaks his ankle, his foot, his leg.
Ah, Dak, Dak was the first to fall.
Then you got what's his name.
Kyle Allen from the Washington football team.
He goes down, Alex Smith is inserted.
Alex Smith started the year off as the third string quarterback.
Then you have the New York football giants.
Last week, Daniel Jones goes down with a hamstring.
When Daniel Jones goes down, they now go to Colt McCoy and last but not least, the only healthy starter that is not the starter.
It's bench for Jalen hurts.
Now, before I talk about Jalen Hurts, put some respect on Dak Prescott.
Hold on, Give me, Give me a second.
You know, thes people been talking about that Prescott.
And since he came into the league, they talked about Dad versus Carson Wentz.
They said, Whence this, whence that.
They said that Carson Wentz was better than that.
You know, he was drafted second overall.
Dak was taken in the fourth round that this versus Carson Wentz that now baby, put some respect on my boy's name.
Dak Prescott versus Carson Wentz.
That conversation is over, folks.
We now have enough games from Carson Wentz because he misses, you know, every season he misses a few games through injury.
We now have enough games on paper to compare Carson and Jack, and it's not close.
And in the game that gave us the mathematical amount of games that we needed on paper, Carson Wentz gets benched.
Conversation is over as a rap done, don't want to hear about it.
Do not want to hear about it because we have seen the comparisons and the talk for years and it is done.
Doc ain't plan, and neither is once when Skin gets bench for Jalen Hurts and Jalen Hurts comes into the game and it's a different game.
It's a spark now that Green Bay defense is no slouch, that defense is pretty decent, whence comes or once comes out of the game, and it's like the Eagles were alive.
This tells me again that the Eagles team they don't rally around.
This guy went and when it is a little off I went to the draft.
I think it was 2017 out in Philly and, uh, whence like, got up on top of this truck and was like talking to the fans.
And the fans were acting like they were listening to God talk and the things that? He said I'm like, this is a quarterback out here.
Like this dude is a weirdo.
He's from North Dakota.
And, uh, I don't know how much he connects with the guys on the team or people in Philly.
They need to make a move, which they did, and they need to just ride it out with Jalen hurts the rest of your See what the kids got.
Um, with Carson wins, you guys ran him.
Uh, the highest paid contract sips tea.
You guys, you guys gave this, uh, this dude over 100 million and you go out on draft.
Well, that hurts, because that's sending a mixed signal and the wrong message.
Especially in Philly.
Ah, place that hadn't wanted before.
And when they want it, they wanted with Nick Foles, not Carson Wentz.
I knew that there would be trouble there.
Photos went, got paid with the Jags.
Now he's with the Bears.
You know, that ship has sailed with him in Philly, but they still need to find another guy Once is never the guy.
He's never gonna be remembered as the guy because they won the Super Bowl without him.
I think his time is done over there, but good for Jalen hurts.
You see all these other rookie quarterbacks playing Borough Herbert Thio Lewin Uh, DeNucci hurts, gets his chance to rock.
And, uh, man, I hope he can play.
Um, I saw earlier today, like on on get up.
I saw Rex Ryan saying that neither one of these guys are NFL quarterbacks.
Carson Wentz right now is not looking like an NFL quarterback, and Jalen Hurts is just not so we'll see.
They are 38 and one that one.
Tie that half a wind keeps them above the Dallas Cowboys right now.
And cool cowboys looking at the top pick Cowboys looking at securing a top five pick.
That's the goal.
That's the focus, honestly.
And when you look at the rest of the teams in our division, right, I think it's gonna come down to the Washington football team in the New York football Giants.
We'll see what the Washington football team has tonight against Pittsburgh.
I think they lose that game, but I got to talk about the Giants for second man.
I don't know what has gotten into the Giants.
That defense I live in Giants Country, so I have no choice but to pay attention to the Giants.
Their defense is legit, man.
You hate to see it as a Cowboys fan, but their defense is legit.
They held Russell Wilson to 12 points.
Russ, come on, man.
What happened to M v p? Russ? What happened to D.
K? The destroyer Metcalfe? What happened? Tyler Lockett, the most underrated receiver in the league until you unlock it like man, I don't know they were.
They were rolling in the beginning of the year, but I literally said to my girl, But you know, before the game started, I was like, Listen, it's December now It's the first Sunday in December.
It's not September anymore.
Stop thinking what you were thinking early in the season and every week, I tell you, I tell everyone I talked to, and I tell myself it's week to week.
When you go into these games and you're picking these games, you're picking parlays or winners to cover the spread.
Do not think about what they did last week.
Of course you have to, because that's just this is What you do is what you go off of.
But it is week to week.
It is any given Sunday.
There's opponent, verse, opponent in the NFL.
It is not set up where, like okay, just because the Chiefs blew out Tom Brady and put up all those points last week doesn't mean they're gonna do that this week against the Broncos, who didn't even have a quarterback last week.
So, like that game they played, they were out of it from the jump from the start.
Either way, let's go through these scores.
This is the Monday show.
This is the Monday morning recap show.
This is where I just talk about the league.
Look back at what happened.
You know, there's some things I love from yesterday.
Darren Waller going off that gunner Oshinsky kid.
I gotta get his name right.
But, Gunner, uh, another fine for Bill Belichick and the Patriots going into L A and stomping the Chargers out.
You knew it was coming.
Bill Belichick versa. Rookie quarterback.
You knew it was coming.
So let's look at these scores quickly.
We're only about 10 minutes in.
So the first game Saints Falcons, I believe the Saints were three point favorite.
They won by five, and you know it was a competitive game, as most of us knew it would be, as Vegas thought it would be.
But once again, Taysom Hill does what he's got to do.
They win, and that defense is solid.
Man, that defense.
I don't think people were talking enough about how well the Saints defense is playing, you know, generous Jenkins going over there from the Giants.
So big addition, especially when you have Lattimore Williams.
Especially when you got Hayward, some of those guys on that defense.
They're they're they're beast.
The next game, the Chicago Bears lose six in a row.
It's time to fire that Matt Nagy.
I know they probably won't do it to the end of the season, but I saw a tweet from Oh, man Matt Forte.
The former Bears running back Matt Forte tweeted. He said.
Smith won 10 games and got fired, but then he's like he's like, But, you know, you didn't hear it from me basically saying like Yo lovey Smith was the head coach of the Giants.
They fired him for winning 10 games.
Matt Nagy just lost six games in a row after opening the season four.
No mind you, the Bears, they completely bots that game.
Uh, the Lions come back toe win 34 10 or 34 3.
The spread was three in favor of the Bears.
They do not cover Colts.
Texans now. Coulson, Texans.
We knew it would be a close game.
The culture favored by three.
The Texans had it. Man.
Watson is doing everything he can.
I feel for that kid.
Watt is getting up in age.
They got too many more games or seasons. Toe waste.
Texans comes down to the wire.
Texans can't get it done.
Colts end up winning by six.
Covering that three point spread.
I had the Colts and that one.
I was right about Saints.
I was right about the bear.
The bear is, too.
I just couldn't have faith in the Bears.
I thought that game was gonna go 96 bears.
Um but I end up taking the lines.
I knew it would be close Texans.
I knew the culture.
I said on SportsCastr news and on my show.
If you go back and look at my show from yesterday, I was like the Texans Air, You know, they've got some momentum, but they're gonna be changed this week without Will Fuller.
And they're just not the better team than the Colts.
They shouldn't win that game.
Bengals, Dolphins now.
Ah, segment that I used to always do on my other show.
Last year, everybody NFL was a segment called NFL Bogus.
And basically what NFL bogus is is whenever you're watching the NFL and you see something bogus, which is literally every week, whether it's a bad call, whether it's a miscall, whether it was a decision made, whether it was something off the field with an NFL player like Yo, that's bogus, that doesn't make any sense.
I had to call out yesterday when I saw Tyler Boyd and Eggs Avian Howard get ejected from the game.
Uh, there were no punches thrown.
There were a little bit of mushing and pushing, but no close fist punches.
You get thrown out of the game for a closed fist punch.
I feel like you know, Tyler Boyd and Xavi in Howard were battling Tyler Boyd had that big touchdown.
The game was closer than anyone thought it would be.
Brad Allen or Brandon Allen quarterbacking for the Bengals.
Jobar borough being hurt.
We all wanted to see two of versus borough.
That didn't happen to a had almost a 300 yard game.
I think it was like 22 of 39.
I saw a game a couple touchdowns.
Um, but back to the NFL.
They ejected Xavi and Howard.
They ejected Tyler Boyd 10 yards out of bounds.
These two kind of got into a scuffle, and I think they tried to justify because they made contact with the ref that changed the whole game.
You took two starters out of the game, one on offense, one on defense that are like two of the best players on their teams.
You hate to see it.
It's like, Come on now.
You just took two guys out of the game.
It's football is rough. They're gonna be violent.
They're gonna be feisty.
They're gonna be pushing each other.
They're gonna be doing Ah, they're gonna be doing that type of stuff.
You can't alter the game by throwing out like the top receiver and one of the top DBS.
But whatever, the NFL is bogus like, that's what they do.
Um, we'll come back to NFL bogus Jaguars Vikings Now.
The spread was minus 10 for the Vikings, and from the jump, I said, Why does anyone think the Vikings were that good? They don't think the Vikings that are that good.
They think the Jaguars are that bad.
And that's disrespectful because the Jaguars have played tough.
Uh, that linebacker they got.
He plays tough miles.
Jackie plays tough, hard Rays, eyes out. But he played tough.
Alan plays tough.
They got guys on that team that played tough.
They lose by three.
It goes over time.
Justin Jefferson, that rookie wide receiver. He's a dog.
He's got five games of over 500 receiving yards in his rookie year.
They don't miss Stefon Diggs at all.
The Vikings pull it out.
Dan Bailey pulls it out, makes up for the missed field goal.
He missed a 51 yard ER, but he comes back to kick the game winner Mike Glennon and those guys, they're they're they're battling, They're tough.
It was interesting because the Jets Giants game or the Jets Raiders game.
Which I'll talk about next, was on and it looked like the Jets had a win, and it looked like the Vikings potentially had a win or a loss.
And we were in real time looking at the potential number one pick being swapped.
So the Jaguars end up losing and the Jets end up losing in terrible fashion.
Couple things from the Jets game always tell you when you watch my show or listen to my podcast.
I'm in Jets, Giants Country.
I can literally see MetLife Stadium out of my window in my living room, lit up green for the Jets.
I thought the Jets were gonna get their first win.
Their fans had a wild roller coaster ride at the end is like, Oh, we're going to get a win.
Oh, no, we don't wanna win.
Oh, we're going to get a nod if we don't win the game.
I don't think I've ever seen a bigger tank job like live in action.
Sam Donald fought hard as a Cowboys fan.
It really warmed my heart to see him lay the truck stick on former Cowboys safety Jeff Heath go.
Go look that up.
Like Sam Donald Trucks, Jeff Heath and Jeff Heath is just facing the ground.
Just demoralized because yeah, forever.
We're going to watch you at the goal line.
Get ran over by a quarterback.
I played that on.
Repeat, I think if you look at my Twitter, it's on my Twitter.
I'm like, I love this former Cowboys safety getting struck by a quarterback.
Great Darren Waller.
My fantasy team is called the Waller Darrin's bald out guy had 200 yards, couple touchdowns, 47 points for me in fantasy.
Um, but I got to go back to this tank job.
The Jets had that Game one.
They had that Game one and Greg Williams sold out, sent an all out blitz.
Had these guys in man and, like I'm watching it in real time and I'm like they can't be serious.
The top draft pick.
The number one draft pick of the Raiders, one of the fastest guys in the league.
They get him one on one against Lamar Jackson, not M V P Lamar Jackson.
Lamar Jackson, The the young corner for the Jets he gives him a little He goes about 10 yards, hits him with a little little glance like just a quick step inside, maybe takes two steps inside, and then he breaks back outside, and the ball is already in the air.
Derek Carr steps up in the pocket. Lets it go.
It was seconds left.
It was like 13 seconds left.
I've never seen on absolute blitz to secure the number one pick like it was almost like a call came down from the top.
Woody Johnson said, What are you guys doing? Yeah, No, no, no, no.
Um, I understand.
Like we're all in 11.
Yeah, but this season is a lost cause.
Anyway, we're gonna fire you guys anyway.
Sending all out blitz, leave no help over the top and let them back into this game and potentially win the game. Yep.
Send a blitz, man coverage.
Now let it happen.
And it happened.
I've never seen that in real time. I'm like, Wow.
Oh, and 16 is very much on the table.
I think that's what they want to do.
Nobody should ever want that.
Nobody should ever want to become that team has there been? I think there was 10 and 16 team in NFL history.
I know the Colts one year.
Ah, I know the Colts one year were really bad.
Let's see all the Detroit Lions in 2000 and eight were, Oh, in 16.
And how could I forget the Cleveland Browns in 2017? We're, Oh, and 16, So the Jets are looking to join them, but I don't know why you would want to join that company.
Ah, I just never seen nine real time like the game was over.
They could have done anything to win that game or close that game, and they did the opposite.
They gave Derek Carr a chance to win the game, and he did.
How about the Browns, though? I just mentioned the 2017 Browns.
These 2020 Brown's three years later, at nine and three.
The A F C has about six good teams.
The NFC has half of that.
Maybe only to the NFC has Seahawk.
Nope, got to take them out now that they lost to the Giants and they have been playing great.
They have the Saints and the Packers in the NFC.
You have Steelers, you have the chief's.
You have the Bills, you have the Dolphins, you have the Browns.
You could probably throw the Rams in or not the Rams.
The, uh, the Ravens in there.
They still got the M V P in a decent defense.
That's That's seven teams.
Whoever wins the Super Bowl this year is gonna come from the A F C.
It's pretty simple.
We'll see how the wildcard shakes out there.
Already playing commercials for the wild card.
We'll see how it shakes out.
But what I'm saying is the FC is tough.
So you see the Browns versus Titans yesterday.
Titans were favorite at home.
I took the Titans in this one.
Titans were minus four.
They got the doors blown off him.
That final score that spread of six.
Cleveland winning by six.
Uh, Cleveland controlled that game from start to finish.
I think that was Baker Mayfield best game.
He caught a pass.
He hit on some deep passes.
He had some laser precision throws.
He made the right decisions, and the biggest thing I took away from that game yesterday.
They don't need Odell Beckham.
They should try and trade Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr should be in a different offense.
That offense is better when it's Baker being the focal point distributing the ball, whether it be two tight ends, whether it be to the two running backs, whether it be to People's Jones, Jarvis, Landry, Higgins a receiving court.
It's not gonna work when you have a guy like Odell that needs to touch the ball like 5 to 10 times a game.
Maybe they trade him to the Rams.
That was ruined. That was rumored.
Now the Rams win this game, 38 28.
I did take the Rams, the Cardinals air trending in the wrong direction.
That Rams defense travels, and the Rams have won seven straight games against Arizona, which told me, Hey, McVeigh's got their number.
I can't bet against McVeigh in this situation, Kyler.
I think that, you know, like anyone else in the NFL like Lamar Jackson, like Tyler, if enough film is out there, basically, if you play enough games and the league can watch your film, they're gonna figure out like it's only a matter of time until they figure out what to do to stop you, what to do to get you kind of off your game.
And they did that.
And, uh, I think it's like they're you know, Hopkins is there and he wants the ball.
He wants to be involved more, but they can't exactly do that.
They're still trying to run Cliff Kingsbury's offense, and I don't know they're They're potentially a playoff team there on the bubble, but a loss doesn't help them.
They go to six and six.
Now, back to this Giant's game.
Giants win, 17 12, and I'm pretty sure the Seahawks were favored in this game by, like, Touchdown.
I don't know what happened.
The Giants won four straight games.
That's the first time they've done that since 2016.
The Giants are trending up.
Daniel Jones is hurt, but they did it with Colt McCoy yesterday, and I think that probably showed them that like, Hey, uh, an average quarterback, even a backup can get this done with this defense.
The defense is a key.
That defense was basically containing DK and lock it, telling Russ, Hey, if you want to throw the ball you're not gonna be this deep.
You're not gonna get these big plays.
You got to check it down, buddy.
You gotta throw it short or run it.
And they weren't able to do either.
I have DK and fantasy.
I've locked it in on another fantasy team.
I have rushed on my fantasy team.
Like, I guess Russ put up 28 but I was expecting bigger day out of him against the Giants.
Man, I hate the Giants.
It it honestly sucks to see them celebrate their victory Monday.
And everything else, it's like 2020 bizarro year.
The Giants are gonna probably win the division.
Speaking of winning the division, the Eagles shouldn't win it.
The Eagles I spoke on in the beginning, they goto Lambeau.
They lose 32 16.
And, uh, Aaron Rodgers and them keep doing what they do. Davante Adams.
Darius Slay Jr is wash man. He's hurt.
They acquired him this year, and people thought that that was going to do something.
No, he just gets cooked.
Davante Adams is the truth.
And Erin Jones is the truth, the truth and the whole truth.
I'm telling you when he started that run yesterday, the long run he had for the touchdown.
I just slowly got out of my seat.
Go, go! This guy refused to be tackled, refused to not see the end zone.
I love that run.
I love when guys air, stop and start and run it, just picking up blocks and it ends in the end zone.
Great run by Erin Jones and the Packers.
It's between the Packers and Saints to represent the NFC Tigers and Saints.
In my opinion, I like to see Drew Brees get there, but I would also be cool with Aaron Rodgers getting there.
Patriots Chargers Now the Patriots come out and they make a huge statement as they get to 500.
They needed this one, I said on the show yesterday.
The Patriots have back to back games in L.
A. Where they play the Chargers and Rams.
That's gonna be a tough game for them next week.
Then they go to Miami and play the Dolphins.
And then they got the Bills.
So if the Patriots are trying to stay in the hunt, they needed that game yesterday.
Their game plan was excellent Bill Belichick versus rookie quarterbacks.
I know you guys all heard it on. We all expected.
Justin Herbert looked like a rookie, a kid that's been throwing for over 300 yards every week.
A kid that's not been looking like a kid.
He was not really.
I don't know. I just watched that game.
Whatever Bill is doing, he's disguising coverages.
He's blitzing him. He's heating him up.
They're all over everything.
Patriots, different defense, bald out.
And that's a huge statement to put a 45.
Nothing went on the board in Week 13 against the Chargers.
Who? Yeah, the charges on a playoff team.
But they've been trending up, and that is what you do as the Patriots on the road to start the road trip.
Last but not least, last night game, last night's game Sunday night, the Chiefs go on to 11 and one.
They should be 12, and, oh, I don't know what they were thinking when they lost to the Raiders at home like that, but they handle business against the Broncos.
They don't cover eso.
I was wrong with taking them to cover, but 22 to 16.
They get it done.
There's another NFL boat. Bogus moment.
Um, what was the other bogus moment that happened? I don't know Tyreke, though, in this game.
What a ridiculous catch.
He's the only receiver to ever not pretend to catch a ball.
He literally thought it hit the ground.
He didn't think twice about it.
We looked at the review.
NFL bogus is not reviewing all scoring plays now.
It was ruled incomplete, but it was ruled incomplete in the end zone.
All scoring plays, they're supposed to be be reviewed.
They should have taken a look at that.
I needed those points for fantasy.
Tyreke only put up 14.
You had that touchdown.
So there we have it.
That's all I got for you. This is Monday.
This is my Monday morning recap.
