He's a little upset with a little upset, but I'm Michael. I'm working on it.
I'm trying to get there, but now we will get into it.
And you know how we always started around here.
You know what with the vibe is we're starting off with the who am I? It is.
Josh has turned to try to guess for the people that don't know way get to pick a random player.
We've been doing NFL, obviously, because it's the NFL season. No.
What other sports come around? We might by switching up, Josh, I would assume Oh, yeah, I'm telling you right now, though, you think I'm bad at the NFL ones.
When we start doing N b A, I might not get one, right.
Did I'll give you easy ones, but my MBA and knowledge do this insane.
And this is this is where we differ.
But this is also why were beautiful together if we ever did MLB ones I got you from I got you from here to the you know, 1980.
I don't think I don't know if Josh could get the current players.
You know, we're even in this way.
We're even or even.
But I'm gonna give Josh some hints after the at the end of my first, and I'm going to start the timer a minute.
30 for my good friend. Josh.
Josh, are you ready? He is there.
I was picked in 2006.
6th round, 207th.
I played for four teams in my NFL career.
Okay, A little bit of a journeymen.
Okay, I see I'm really bad at the Roman numerals, but I'm gonna assume that he won Super Bowl 46.
I'm pretty sure that this is the Yeah, he did Super Bowl 46 z.
Going to say That's very recent.
I mean, hey is still he's a recent player.
I'm not This is not too old of a guy.
So when I started, I did I don't know.
When is the how long ago is that? What do we ask you both 53 now? Yeah.
So that would be like, Oh, no.
Do you want to know? All right.
He played for the Colts from 06 to 2013.
Then he went to the 40 Niners that under the Cardinals and in the Giants last year.
He's currently a free agent.
It's Ah, he's a quarterback.
He You know he's not.
He plays, I'll give you another. He plays defense.
12, but yeah, E forgot e.
I was like, Wow. Wow.
Because you just got that at a minute and 29.
Okay, that is that is some that was just pulled out of nowhere.
I don't think you're gonna get it for a little bit.
You know, I was thinking quarterbacks like I don't know why.
I know you know. That's honest.
No, it's honestly understandable.
At least listen, the Roman numeral thing it was x l.
And then with one.
So is that thirties that's 36 included.
I don't know those I don't know those Roman numerals.
You know what? You got it right? So even if I was wrong saying the Roman numerals, it doesn't matter.
You still got it right I don't know what the current record of the home I is, but I know for a fact you're definitely up.
Yeah, I think I've only got, like, one wrong.
Shot over there.
We're really talking about the record.
So I'm just saying, I don't know.
I e only got one other than freaking.
What's his name from the Titan? Yeah.
Don't know why he playing some random guy.
I just don't understand how you don't think he's a god played for years. Yeah.
You know what? Those four years were something special.
Those were the best four years of my life, even though I never saw a single play from him.
But you know, same thing.
You know what I mean? I don't even remember who I gave you.
Like, give you a really tough one.
It was I don't remember his name.
I don't remember either, honestly, but, you know, it doesn't matter.
I probably got it wrong because you're a mean person.
Um, but let's move it on Thio currently again.
That is going on right now that I was watching while I'm the zoom meeting with my professor.
But I'm gonna pull it up again right now.
See what the current score is.
We were going to jump in to the Washington football team and the Steelers.
Now it is currently 14 to 10 in the third quarter.
Three minutes, 16 seconds left.
Steelers have the ball now, this is actually a good jumping off point because that was, you know, kind of the first thing I wanted to jump into.
I think the Steelers are legit because obviously, when If you're gonna be undefeated at this point in the season, I don't care who you play.
You usually have some type of off week, something like that where you just don't get the job done and listen, they've done it.
They could only play the people that the NFL schedule makers put in front of them.
And it's not their fault that, you know, they've had a cakewalk schedule.
This that and the third.
But do you think that their religion team? Because, like I said that the jumping off point I kind of want to get into is there playing close games.
It seems like every week.
And while I think that they're very good, obviously you They did not play very well last week against, but I don't even know the third string practice squad.
Players of the Ravens.
Like I don't even know what to call them.
The random person in the parking lot who they thought looked athletic like they didn't play too well against them.
You know, I'll just go back in tow, looking at some of the Steelers game.
They won that game, 1914.
They handled 27 to 3.
They handled the Steelers.
Remember when they played the Cowboys? That game was very close.
The first game, as the Ravens is 28 20 for the Titans game was 27 24 so they definitely had some close games here and there.
The Texans, they were 2021 even the Broncos with 26 21.
Now I know that there are 11 to know and that can't be denied.
But how do you take them? Because they definitely place, um, close games and games that I think they should probably be knocking these teams out quickly.
Yeah, I think their defense is extremely good.
I mean, the secondary with Minka on that pass rush with Cam Heyward really good, but that the offense has been up and down.
They started off the season really well, but ever since then, it's just their play.
Call has been really weird that don't really have a running game on.
That's kind of because James Connor has been a big disappointment for everybody.
So I don't know my futures bet.
Yeah, but I think, uh, they're undefeated, so I think they kind of have to be looked at as legit.
Regardless of your schedule.
It's tough to win 11 straight games, regardless of who you're playing, and they've barely won a couple games like you said against the Cowboys.
Then last week against RG three and Trace McSorley, they almost almost took that one late.
But I think they have to be looked at as legit just due to their record.
I think they could be playing better offensively, but I wouldn't say there at the same level as the Chiefs, but they're definitely when you're talking about all the other teams, all the other contenders, they're at the top of that list.
So I think they're legit now.
You mentioned it.
The Steelers defense has been playing you know very well and they kind of rebuild that defense.
From what you know, I saw in years past when the Patriots were kind of tearing them apart in just, you know where it was.
And if that doesn't work, we don't really have a game plan.
And one of those players that I definitely think helped rebuild their defense is T. J. Watt.
Now my question for you is obviously we all.
I think we can all kind of sit here and agree that Aaron Donald is kind of head and shoulders above everybody else, especially, I mean, at least on the defensive side of the football.
I don't want to get to the offensive.
That's the whole, you know, different story.
But do you think what has a chance to win the defensive player of the year? Because, you know, just reading off some of his staff Right now, he has 11 sacks.
I believe he has an interception this season, 38 tackles.
I believe that is so.
He's played, you know, pretty solid this year.
He's definitely, you know, he's definitely a threat.
I don't know what the what parents were feeding their Children but I hope that they can let me know So I can have, you know, three NFL Children as well with J J T. J.
And and even Derek who? Listen, he might be a full bag, but God **** it, he made it to the NFL s.
So it doesn't even matter.
But you think he's got a chance.
Oh, are we looking at an Aaron Donald, You know? What is it? Three peat.
Would this be a three Peter Repeat? I think it would be a repeat.
E think he missed a year a couple of years ago, but I think I think he's got a really good chance for two reasons.
I mean, he's been the best pass rusher on a team with a lot of really good pass rushers, and his team is they're winning, and it's a lot because of their defense.
And Aaron Donald, I mean, every year he plays in this fully healthy is putting up crazy numbers.
So he's always gonna be in that conversation for defense player of the year.
But I think TJ Watt has has a debate their toe when the award, because he's playing at the same level I mean, he's impossible to block.
He's getting to the quarterback.
Got that interception.
So I think he has a convert like he's in the conversation.
But Aaron Donald I mean, how can you look at Aaron Donald? Be like, No, he wasn't the best defense player this year.
Any of the craziest thing for Aaron Donald, for me is he puts numbers up like that, and I I'm pretty sure, like I'm 99% sure that he faces the most double teams in the league.
Like Like not like everybody wisely.
Yeah, like it's not even like an opinion, like it's legitimate stats that he used double teamed basically all of the time.
So what he's doing is unbelievable.
You know, he's definitely one of the players that I think our generation is gonna look back on and be like, Wow, we really got to see somebody like that play because, you know, you obviously start talking about like the older players with, you know, the Reggie White's on.
Do you know people off that era and that skill level? If Aaron Donald's continues this is it out? Is it? You know, out of Listen, I'm gonna use my New York term.
Is it out of pocket to say that he could be considered one of the one of the, you know, not even one of the greatest defensive player of all time? Because I know right now it's It's still kind of Lawrence Taylor.
I would say, at least I don't know where you fall on it.
No, I'm right there with you.
But listen, if he's gonna keep playing like this in the production he gets from a defensive tackle standpoint, is I don't think the greatest defensive player of all time is that Is that of the question.
No, I completely agree.
I mean the number.
She's putting up his dominance if he's able to repeat as defense player of the year and just I mean, like, like not during was gonna say longevity is very crucial on the defense side of the ball, because, I mean, you're literally hitting someone every place, So injuries are really common, and he's had a couple of injuries himself and the fact that he's still the most dominant player in football, he's definitely gonna be in that conversation if he can keep it up the rest of his career for sure.
Now let's jump over to the other side of the ball in this football team Steelers game.
Now, you know what? I just want to say this real quick to football team.
Terrible name, Awful name, in fact, but I don't know how you feel.
I love their uniforms, bro.
Just like the helmet.
Just the number on the side.
I don't know why, but I feel like it's kind of fire.
It's throwback ish. I like it.
Do you think that the football team can still win the NFC East? Because, you know, clearly we can't count out those surging Giants with whatever they're five and seven hour or something or something like that.
Four and seven baby weight.
Are you sure it's for I think it's five.
Because on a four game winning streak right now, didn't they have a win before this or they were that bad? They were all in seven.
Did they win last week? Yeah.
Uh, you might be a crappy record your right now.
No, You know, you're right there on a four game win streak, but they are five and seven.
Yeah, all right.
So you know they're there, but they're playing pretty solid.
Listen, they might be terrible if you look at every other division, but all you gotta do is win enough games to win your own division, and that's currently what they're doing.
But you think the football team still has a chance to compete with them because I think coming down the stretch, they definitely could.
I don't They don't play each other.
You know anymore throughout the season.
Al, let me tell you something.
If the football team and Giants end up in a tie, she's Washington fans are gonna have your boy's head in Ron Rivera because now, going for you know, that two point conversion when they were only down by one trying to be You know, Mr Riverboat definitely is not looking too good for the football team now.
They could be tied with them right now because I think if they kick that extra point in going over time, Washington was gonna win that game.
The Giants literally could not do anything as him because that Giants team was kind of before they got onto the role of you know where they are now they're still kind of playing, you know, pretty bad that play is going to come back to haunt them.
I don't know how you feel about that, but do you think that they can still win this division? You give them a chance? Uh, no.
I think the Giants are playing really good football.
The defense is has been amazing.
And they were able to beat the Seahawks with Colt McCoy quarterback.
So I think I think this is the Giants division now.
Carson Wentz sucks.
I'm ready to watch.
Jalen hurts start the rest of season.
Cowboys have no chance.
I mean, Washington, Like Antonio Gibson's been amazing this year for them.
He's been really good.
Obviously, everyone knows about Terry McLaurin and how good he's been and chasing.
Of course, Gibson got hurt.
Yeah, he went out of the game so that that sucks that I don't think they're gonna win this game either way.
But I think I mean, it's tough to roll.
Roll them out in such a crappy division.
I mean, the Giants been playing good, but there's still five and seven, so I wouldn't rule it out.
But I don't think it's It's super likely that they'll they'll be up there even within like a game towards the end of the year.
It's gonna be fun.
Thio Watch it down the stretch.
I don't know how good it will be, but it could definitely get interesting.
And before we move on, I miss this.
I wanted to ask this before, but I know how strongly you feel about the Chiefs.
You think the Steelers got any chance competing with them? Uh, yeah, they might be able to compete with them.
I mean, after last night, the Chiefs.
I mean the Broncos defense.
It's not the worst in the league, but there's no reason the chief should get stopped on the goal line like that repeatedly.
So I think I feel like that's been a problem all year to like it wasn't just that game.
Yeah, like I mean, there's such an explosive offense.
I feel like they never work on Golan offense because they usually score 40 plus yard touchdown.
But I think that Steelers defense is, is why they could have a chance against them.
I would still pick the Chiefs.
I still think they're above everybody else.
But I think the Steelers Sheila's defense would keep that game interesting.
Yeah, like you said, I think I would give them a pretty solid chance.
I think that that game, if it was, you know, that would probably have to end up being the A F.
C championship game.
But that is definitely gonna.
And you know what the funny thing is to with the way NFC teams are playing.
I still don't know who I trust.
I guess the Saints have been playing pretty style hood.
The Packers have been playing pretty solid, but like I don't know who I still trust in the NFC yet.
So is it crazy to say that the A F C championship game is the Super Bowl? I don't really think so.
So then again, anything can happen.
I didn't see the Titans coming last year, and they ended up in the NFC championship game, so we will see how that race goes down.
And now you know, usually we would only have one Monday night game, but in the year of the coronavirus they blessed us with to Monday night football games, so now we'll go over to the nightcap in the 40 Niners and the Bills.
The 40 Niners still have a chance at the playoffs.
You know, we're not, you know, with all the injuries that they went through, you know, Jimmy going down Kittel both Sherman missed all those games.
You know, some of these guys air, you know, kind of coming back, starting a healthy and no, Sherman returned.
Uh, they're talking about kill.
Maybe being available like week 17 or 16.
I would assume if they make a playoff run, he's obviously available.
So it'll be it'll be fun to see, but you give them a chance.
Thio come out of the and it will not come out of the NFC but to just make the playoffs, you know, wild card, you know, division winner type of thing.
I mean, I think they have a chance.
Nick Mullins has been playing pretty solid on that defense.
Has been picking it up.
But what? The Vikings getting another win, I think there.
If if the Cardinals follow the playoffs, I think the Vikings would get up in there.
But, I mean, I think they have a chance.
But without Kittel, they're currently the nine seed behind the Vikings.
And who has a cardinal's right now? Yeah, wow, that's crazy.
If Minnesota drops out of the playoffs and San Francisco jumped them literally, all of those NFC West teams make the playoffs.
Yeah, that that division is stacked, and I can.
I mean, imagine if that team was healthy to be the toughest division play, but I think they have a chance added with how the offense has been looking.
Shanahan's kind of got a got a grip on it now with kind of adjusting with all the injuries and moving parts through it.
So I think they have a chance.
But Minnesota has also been playing really good football.
I know they just almost leaped.
Mike Glennon beat them in overtime, but they still think they're playing better Football.
Dalvin Cook and Kirk Cousins picking it up a little bit, but I think the 40 Niners have a chance.
But even if they get to the playoffs advocacy, I don't see them moving.
On past past the wild card game I saw, I saw your tweet yesterday about that that Vikings game, you were you a little invested in a lot of investing man, I just don't understand why, like the Jets almost win, the Giants do win the Jags.
Almost when those games that had no reason being that stressful.
Listen, let me tell you something.
We're not gonna talk about the Jets Raiders game because the Jets aren't worth our time.
But, I mean, how do you lose that game? Don't get me wrong, Jets fans.
You have to be happy because there's no way you want to win that game and lose out on the number one pick.
But the fact that you called an all out blitz 256 256 plays have been run like that and the Jets of the first team since 2006 to rush seven people.
What are you doing? I mean, I know you want to take I don't know if you follow her.
Mina Kimes is a great sports reporter, and somebody said, What is that play call? And she drew a tank.
She drew a tank on the on the field, so she definitely she got me on that one.
That was a good one.
I got to start thinking of these things.
Yeah, you know that was the thing to Greg.
Williams also got fired.
Listen, I think that entire coaching staff is gonna end up getting fired.
So I don't really think this is like a statement.
Let's try to turn it around and maybe win one game, not go on 16 1 15 like it's not that type of firing.
We're tryingto no, we're blitzing.
But I mean, how how are you gonna? I couldn't believe it because I love my mom.
My mom came in my room with 35 seconds left, and I was like, Wow, the Jets might actually win.
She's not really that big into sports, but even she knows the Jets suck.
I mean, it's hard to avoid, you know, living in New York.
And she's like, No, they'll probably blow it.
I was like, I don't know, There's only 35 seconds left, no time outs.
And you know, I looked down at my phone because I was watching a bunch of other games and I look up and Derek are just loft it right over the defense for a touchdown.
That is that special.
Oh, yeah, only the Jets I had the game on and I was like mad.
I was like, Freaking, I'll finish watching it and then whatever.
And then I'm looking at it, and that last play with five seconds, I see everybody blitz.
I'm like what? And then I just see Henry rugs make the move and he's wide open up like they really just gets the crap out of this game now.
So you don't get me wrong.
I know that they shouldn't have blitzed.
But if you're that corner, why are you biting on a stop and go? He's not gonna, like, stop right there like there would be no point in that.
You know, he said, so I don't know how he I mean, he's not drafted free agent.
He obviously doesn't have the best skill or or football like you, because I was just a dumb play on his part to.
But I was just all around the disaster play for the Jets.
It was special to say the least, but we'll get back to the 40 Niners and Bills right now.
How far do you think the Bills can get into the playoffs? Because I think you know, I like this team, I really do.
I think if Josh Allen going to continue to play the way he does, I think this Stefon Diggs, I'm kind of I guess I'm kind of merged these two questions.
The addition of Stefon Diggs has made a absolutely noticeable difference before Josh Allen.
And, you know, it's kind of you start ranking, you know, duos in the league where you got Kyler and Hopkins.
You know, people like that.
You know, if you want to go Brady, Evans or God when whatever, I might rank Allen and digs in the top five e.
I love Stefan Dig, I called.
Listen, I might have been wrong about Carson ones.
M v P might have been wrong.
Just a tad. Just a tad.
What I did call Stefon Diggs being you know, I don't even know.
I don't He might not be Top five anymore, but you know he's around there a top five receiver this year, so I'm giving myself a pat on the back for that one.
But where do you think they go and how higher you ranking the digs toe Alan Connection? Yeah, I think they could make a nice playoff run. E.
I think we both agree that it comes down to Chiefs or Steelers who's going to the Super Bowl.
But I do think they could be in one of those one of those traditional games and put up a fair fight and have a chance at winning it.
My only issue with them is they don't really have a running game.
I mean, Josh Allen is basically their running game because Devin Singletary has been pretty disappointing all year and their defense is up and down to.
But I do think they have a chance toe.
So maybe win a couple games, maybe sneak into the championship game if they could surprise the Steelers, their offenses and moving the ball and digs and Alan, because when you look at quarterback receiver duos like, it's not just about how skilled both guys are, it's more about like how well are they working together like Kyler and and Hopkins? I mean, Hopkins having 10 catches, 100 plus yards all the time and it's now kind of same thing with digs and out.
I mean, he's he's been his main target all year, has been putting up crazy numbers almost had that game winner against Arizona, but it just felt short a little bit.
I can't believe they lost that game, man, that was crazy.
But I think I think they're definitely in the top five range because Breeze and Thomas ARNDT on top five Thio quarterback, receiver Just because I mean last year Yeah, but this year now I think it be Hopkins Kyler.
Uh, I put Rodgers and Davante one this year.
They asked that there I would go.
Rogers devante probably Kyler Hopkins.
So I mean the other quarterbacks.
But I'm in Russell Wilson and D.
K You go, you go DK Or do you go lock it, though I think it has to be DK.
I mean, like, it's had some crazy games, but DK has been more consistent.
Yeah, I could I could put I could put DK and Russell third because Russell throws the best deep on the league.
So then you gotta go my homes hill.
No, actually, I e I would say my homes in Calc, and then obviously I could round it out with digs down.
Yeah, I definitely think I think they deserve to be up there with how both of them have been playing and in that trade.
I mean, it was kind of great for both teams because the Vikings and Digs didn't have a great relationship.
They moved on from him and immediately get Justin Jefferson has been has I mean, yeah.
If it wasn't, it wasn't for Herbert playing so well this year.
Justin Jefferson would probably be offensive rookie of the Year of James Robinson.
Now, before we move on from this, give me.
Give me that score. Prediction. Come on.
What are we thinking? I could actually see this being kind of a high scoring game, just with how the 40 Niners offense has kind of been picking it up.
And I think it's gonna be close.
So I'm gonna go 27 20.
Think somebody misses a kick? I don't know which teams out.
That's for either way.
Either way, I'm going 30 24 bills.
Okay, I'm going big bills here.
Yeah, I mean it z crazy that the 40 Niners are still kind of in these games and they're basically missing everything part.
It's literally unbelievable.
The fact that like Kyle Shanahan really might have to get a coach of the year.
Yeah, acknowledgment, at least.
We'll see where that goes.
Well, you know, Josh, I think one of these days we're gonna have to do on award show you have to do in a warship as we got the Listen, Josh, make sure you set up with screen way.
Got Perry in here.
Take everything very seriously.
Perry, I hope we're doing a good job.
Okay, moving on from that.
But let's go on to the Sunday recap.
We'll start off with my guys, my boys, the Patriots, demolished chargers.
I mean, it was embarrassing.
It really was embarrassing.
I mean, they won that game 45. Nothing.
And do you know how many passing yards Cam had? I think you know, I had, like, 1 26 or something like that.
You are so generous.
How much of the 69? Uh, they won a game 45.
Nothing with a quarterback drawing for 69 yards and even, like rushing in passing that it even eclipse 100.
Uh, you know what? That's a great question.
I'm gonna look it up right now is that I Honestly, I honestly don't think he did.
I really don't because he had he had the 69 passing yards.
Let's go, Let's go to the rushing.
Let's let's see real quick.
Let's go to rushing yards. No, that's receiving.
Where is the Russian? Come on.
Hey, did he had 48 rushing yards? So he had, like, 100 116 11 yards, something of that total on.
Do you want to? And you want a game 45? Nothing.
I mean, that's just that this that's where you see this is where people are going to get into the argument, because that is just unbelievable.
That's when you can get into the It was more building Brady type of thing because that coaching matchup shouldn't even have been allowed.
It should have been like Rocky, where they had to throw in the **** towel because Belichick was embarrassing Anthony Land.
And that's just another thing to get into.
You gotta agree with me here That wouldn't has to be gone after the season.
E tried defending his man for way too long.
I really did because I was like, you know what maybe it's not them.
The players just don't execute, you know, late in games.
But the Patriots are barely beating some teams and you got smacked.
You had a punt returned, Ah, blocked field goal and the opposing team quarterback had, like, 111 yards total.
And you've lost 45? Nothing.
Are you out of your mind like I don't I don't know.
I don't know where you go from that If they fired him today, would I be shocked? Absolutely not.
I would think about it.
What would you would you take away from this game if you saw any of it? Yeah, I mean, it's it's insane that you lose 45 to nothing and can't basically didn't have to do anything.
He just handed the ball off, and that was about it.
So it's just Z embarrassing, and yesterday was kind of the first time we've seen Herbert really looked like a rookie.
He's been playing like like an experienced quarterback all year, keeping up with with some great players.
But it was it was just an ugly game.
I think Caitlin's gotta go.
I could see them waiting out till the end of the year just for I'd probably just keep him there for Herbert just so he doesn't have to deal with some weird stuff for the rest of the year with an interim head coach and changing an offense.
Switzer the offices and do that.
I definitely think he's out, and like you said, I mean, Bill Belichick just bodied him in this in this coaching matchup.
So I think I think Belichick is.
People have kind of looked away from him this year, just due toa.
They're not winning every game on the top of the division, but they're they're looking good.
I mean, they could still sneak in the playoffs, and I know we said on the unwrapped like we were talking with time when we both agreed that the Panthers would finish with a better record than the Patriots.
I don't know about that anymore.
I really don't know about what's that? What's the Panthers record? I think we're like three and something.
We just had a bye week, though, because we've only be there's only three wins.
We only beat the Falcons, the Chargers.
It would beat anybody else.
I might have to. I e.
Uh, this is my man faces.
This is just straight fax.
I mean, like, what am I supposed to argue? Do that back up. Okay, well, the type.
But you're talking about a dude in the M V P conversation versus a guy that just had 100 11 total yards and won by 45.
Oh, you know, you know, he's Bill Mafia when he's got go right here next to Josh.
Hey, listen, I love me some Josh and I thought I thought he was gonna get a lot better this year, and I was correct.
Just another just another tally to put on the board just saying just saying.
But how do you think the chargers turn this stuff around? You know, it's definitely a coaching situation for sure, but you gotta get the coaching situation, right.
But who knows who's gonna be out there? You could really feel like everybody thinks of, you know, Eric the enemy, But, you know, there's definitely other people that will probably be available as well.
If you're the Chiefs.
I don't know how you stop in division rival from getting, uh, you know, one of your offensive coordinators.
I don't really think you can, but I would love to see the enemy to go to the Chargers.
I think it would be so good for them you had with all the weapons they have with Ecuador. If he stays healthy.
Keenan Allen has had an amazing year.
I've always been a pretty big fan of Hunter Henry.
We obviously see what Herbert can dio and then please, please football gods let Derwin James be healthy for a season because I feel like you could definitely see that they miss him in the back end of that secondary.
But how do you think they turn this around? Is there certain things that you think they got a draft? You think it's just the coaching situation? They've got to get it right.
I think it's got to be coaching because I have a really talented roster all around.
I mean pass rushers with with Ingram and and Bosa and then their linebackers just drafted Kenneth Murray and he's been playing great all year, then that secondary, when you add Derwin James to is, is really good and and Derwin James is an amazing player.
But that defense should still be a t East better than they have been without him.
So I think it's got to be coaching.
I think if they could get the enemy, that'd be great.
I really want to see the enemy go to Houston.
I think DeShaun Watson deserves a smart coach that can actually help him out, so I think that would be good for them.
But there's gonna be a lot of good coaching candidates for teams that don't have, like, the lines.
They're going to get a good head coach, Hopefully, this offseason.
So so some other teams.
But I had, um, ourselves e think they just need a new coach.
I obviously have their franchise quarterback in Herbert, great receivers, a lot of town on defense, so I don't think it's the roster.
That's that's really the issue.
It's definitely got to be coaching.
Yeah, it's there, You know, there's certain situations as a coach, you probably don't want to go to just thinking.
Obviously, the Jets are the easy answer.
If I'm somebody who's looking for a head coaching job, if it's my first or if it's my next spot, you gotta look at the charges and think, Wow, that's a That's a great spot.
Like you said, they have a lot of town on that offense, a lot of talent, even on the defensive side.
You know, obviously, with Nick Post, they're coming out last year, but a lot of people forgot about Joey.
Joey's having a very solid season as well, even though he had that concussion for a little bit.
And like I said, if they could get back Derwin, which obviously I think we all hope because he is just very, very exciting to watch.
And he was very good his rookie season.
So that'll be fun, But we'll move on to the Browns and the Titans.
This was this one's shocked.
May A really did because listen, let me let me get real here.
Once again with the people, I thoroughly enjoy my sleep.
So I go to bed very late.
I'm talking like the wee hours of the morning, Lee, not like Oh, I went to bed so late I went to bed at, like one o'clock.
No, no, that's not I believe I went to bed at seven AM I have a problem.
So I woke up Sunday at Like what? I woke up.
I literally set my alarm.
I was like, I'm getting up. Don't care.
I'm watching the football games.
I turned my alarm off immediately.
Fell back to sleep.
Welcome back. Two o'clock.
It was like, ****, I guess I must have missed some of the game.
So I go out, get the laptop to start getting all my games up in things like that.
By the way, football team and Steelers were tied up 17 17 with nine minutes left in the fourth God.
But so I go out there and my dad hands me his computer.
He was watching the He was watching that game and it was, like, 30 to nothing.
I was like, What the hell happened? I said when? When did this ever happen with the Browns? So the Browns absolutely bodied the Titans.
Baker played Super Bowl.
I think he had four touchdowns.
Uh, you know, the time tried to come back, but they obviously couldn't just, you know, with the whole that they were in where I kind of want to go with both sides on this are browns and tightens you looking contender, Pretender What are you thinking? Yeah, I think the Browns can be.
If Baker plays like this in the playoffs, they're gonna be a tough team to beat.
Because that town on the office inside the ball, unfortunately, no del.
But they still have two great running backs and hunt and job.
And then Higgins has been a nice pickup for them, and people's Jones played really well yesterday, too, but I don't think they're consistent enough to be a contender.
I think there'll be a solid match up in the playoffs, but not consist enough.
And same thing with the Titans.
I mean, Derrick Henry just couldn't do anything.
I get it, Miles Garretts really having a great year in that that defense is good in the run game, but he's He's one of the most dominant running backs.
You've got to be ableto play better than that.
So I don't think either of them are contenders.
I would say they're pretenders just due to the inconsistency.
See, that's the thing.
I think they're pretenders as well, because I don't think I I couldn't see you know these teams going to the Super Bowl, so I guess I can't technically label them a contender, but I feel like nobody wants to play either one of these teams anyway.
Like if you get into the playoffs like I, I could list a bunch of teams in the playoffs right now that you would rather face than than the Browns and Titans, and that's simply because they both play a style football.
That's just annoying.
Like they run the ball, they play off, play action and then they, you know they were.
I don't think either defense is, you know, crazy good, but they have enough talent, you know, stop, stop people on the defensive side of the ball so I wouldn't want to play either one of these teams.
Like I, I truly, truly would not.
The Bill I said, the Bills.
The The Browns, like you said, have have Hunt and Chubb, who are just playing out of their minds this year.
I'm so happy that I traded for chopping my fantasy league so happy, but he's playing pretty well and if Baker, like you, said, I can play that way.
I don't know how you really stop them because I think the problem that's been holding them back a little bit has been Baker, and I'm kind of a Baker fan just because he's kind of an ass.
And I kind of enjoy that simply just a little bit, because I think that it's just, you know, as a little flavor to the league as a little flavor.
So I've kind of been ah Baker apologize.
But if he's gonna play like that, I don't know how you stop them because the play action Thio you know Jarvis Landry.
Like you said Higgins, everybody people have been playing very well on this Brown's team.
You know, I literally picked up Jarvis in fantasy two weeks ago because somebody got hurt Last second.
I was like, I gotta pick somebody up.
Man puts up like, 35 points last week in 20 this week like shout out my man.
So Jarvis might have to be my new favorite player, and then you go over to the tight inside of the ball way.
Obviously saw what what? The run they went on last season.
I don't know if they can duplicate that again because you look at the Italians now and people.
I mean, I guess people always kind of knew what they were going to do with, You know, Derrick Henry running.
They're gonna play off play action as well There are.
There are a lot like the Browns, just kind of just, you know, class of two teams that play similar.
But I don't know how far Ryan Tannehill can take you.
I know obviously he's been playing very well, but if they get behind like they did in the game like this, I don't have the confidence that they can come back.
And this is an explosive team like the Chiefs or somebody of that nature.
You never really feel like they're out of the game.
We obviously saw that in their entire playoff run.
You know, last year to the Super Bowl, where they were down 10 plus.
And I think every game If that happens to the Titans, they can't play their brand of football.
They can't run Derrick Henry, you know, 20 times, like they want to 25 times like they want to.
They have to start passing the ball.
And while Tannehill has been solid, I don't think that if you're the Titans, that's what you want to do moving forward.
I mean, I agree.
I think the last thing they want to do is rely on Ryan Tannehill throwing the ball deep, making, making some tough throws because, like you said, that's not They're playing football there there, pound the rock short throws and it sucks that they don't throw the ball more often because Cory Davis and A.
Brown or two amazing something, they're great.
So I think if they had a quarterback like that could sling the Rock, then they can come back and games like that.
But if they get down big like that, like you said, it's gonna be very tough for them toe to put themselves in a position to win.
So I just don't think they're gonna have a run like they did last year.
I mean, Derrick Henry was just a man on a mission last year.
Ryan Tannehill is trying to prove himself, and now Ryan Santa Hills got his bag.
Derek Henry's got his bag.
So it's not like they're trying to prove themselves as much as they were last year.
A defense lost in pieces.
So I just don't think they're gonna be ableto do what they did last year.
Yeah, well, I think.
But like I said, I don't think either one of them are contenders, because I don't think they can make it to the Super Bowl.
But I definitely don't think I think there's a lot of teams that look at them on the on the playoff schedule and say, Yeah, I hope that we might lose the game or they win a game that we don't have to face them But we're moving on to the last game.
That will recap for Sunday, the Giants and the Seahawks.
Man, I know that you touched on this, A swipe it, But I can't I can't believe it, you know, I guess if Daniel Jones played, I still would have thought that they were gonna lose.
But I would have given them a better chance because I think Jones can run that offense a little bit better because he's mobile and, you know, watching the Giants.
They're pretty solid on the read options.
So that's a big part of the game that they kind of installed since Daniel Jones got there because he is mobile.
But the Seahawks just couldn't do anything yesterday like I was watching that game, you know, I was watching some of it that I would, you know, turned on a different game.
That what definitely wasn't my main focus.
And my brother texted me and he was like, What the hell is the Seahawks team right now? And I turned it back on and they were losing.
I was like, I have no idea what's going on.
Like what? I I don't know what it is.
I know that the defense is terrible, but, you know, in that game they didn't give up too many points.
The offensive line is awful, though.
Like that Russell Wilson got sacked five times again.
So that right, always trying to create they lost him early in the game and their backup.
I've never seen a worse offensive linemen in the lead Thio Jabba shared with just Bull rushing him every play.
Dude, it was It was embarrassing.
He he could look anyway.
Yes, that that kind of is.
The question, though, is what's wrong with the Seahawks, because I think that there's a so long kind of list of things and people kind of blame are starting to blame it on Russ and that, you know, that all kind of leading to the next question as well as if he could still even be in the M V P race.
I think he's kind of taking himself out of it.
Certainly, I think it's now kind of Ah Rogers Mahomes type of thing, which saddens me because I really just want Russian win every P.
I think I think he's just, you know, carry that franchise.
And I'm kind of hoping that this isn't a Drew Brees situation where he just doesn't end up winning one.
But I think Russell, you know, still has some prime years left, so he still has that chance.
But what's wrong with the Seahawks? Josh and you think You think Russell still got and any type M V P chants or what's going on here? No, he doesn't have a chance at the M V P anymore.
You can't have that better performance.
While Rogers and my homes are putting up great numbers.
I think Russell Wilson is the only good thing about this entire team.
Maybe Jamal Adams, but even he kind of sucks this year.
DK's dropped a couple of passes yesterday, e mean that defense.
We all know it's one of the worst hit.
They They were letting Alfred Morris, who hasn't been good since his rookie year, run all over them and let Colt McCoy beat them.
So that offensive line we all know Russell Wilson got sacked five times.
I already talked about that right tackle.
I mean, the offensive play calling.
They weren't really given DK or lock it any sort of chance.
They were just kind of running them across the middle and sending d k Deep.
And James Bradberry has been amazing all year in the deep ball.
So why would you? I don't know.
Everything is bad about that team besides Russell Wilson, it's just it's ugly to watch.
Yeah, it's definitely not been the, uh, Seahawks that started off with a five and I was six and I or something or something like that And Russell was pointing out of his mind is definitely not that team anymore.
But, you know, let's get the Giants, um, credit here.
They were playing pretty well there on that four game winning streak.
As we said before, they're five and seven out of the top of the division a few questions here.
You think that they win the division one to you, giving them any chance in a playoff game and my favorite question for you Because I'll dive into it after you respond to these.
You think they still need Tae Kwon? Okay, Yeah, I think they do in the division.
I don't trust anyone else.
I'm barely trust them.
I just really like their defense.
Blake Martinez has been amazing this year.
Bradbury has been amazing.
So I think they win the division.
I think they do have a chance in the playoffs.
I mean, a team like Arizona are Minnesota.
If they're playing them, they have really bad defense is so they may be able to run the ball like they did today.
And that defense is is gonna be ableto halt their offenses.
So I think they have a chance.
I wouldn't bet on it, but their defense would be able to keep them in the game, and I get it.
They're playing really well without say, Kwan, but they'd be playing much better with him.
I don't see why people are saying like they shouldn't have drafted him.
I get it hasn't been the most amazing running back since being drafted, but I think he's still a vital part of the team.
Still a monster athlete, still amazing in the open field when he gets the ball can break tackles.
I mean, if we're really arguing, should they move forward with Wen Goldman instead of, say, Kwan, just I'm not gonna entertain that. I think he's.
I think he's still their franchise player.
Yeah, I think like you said, I think they're gonna win the division just because I don't know who else will.
But I will say it's currently 17 17 right now with two minutes left, and I think the football team is on the Yeah, there on the Steelers 25.
Eso uh, there, there might We might be on upset alert right now, so this game is definitely ah, little bit interesting.
And if this goes final before you know we're off, we might have.
We might have to chat about, you know, we might have to retake our thoughts on the Steelers, but yeah, I think there's a good with the division for a playoff game, you know, I guess I just won't put anything past them because, you know, they beat us twice in the Super Bowl.
So I guess I can't put anything past the Giants.
You know, neither one of those teams were really solid.
And they somehow went on playoff runs and obviously sought with the 79 Seahawks beating Saints that year with, you know, the beast quake and everything like that.
So it is, uh, you know, you can't put anything behind people, I guess.
I guess you really can't.
The NFL was really, uh if you have a bad game, you're gonna lose type of sport and, you know, you know, some other aren't like that if you have a bad game in basketball.
But you know, your bench comes off and score 60 points, it doesn't really matter.
But if the quarterback doesn't play good football, you're kind of screwed, So I don't know.
I could definitely give them a chance.
And with the sake, want argument? I know that I know that he's really good, but he's been to hurt this year.
He was hurt last year.
The offensive line just isn't good in general, so I don't know how much he can do.
Anyway, I wouldn't be opposed to trading him.
Not And I know you said you don't want to move forward.
You don't have to.
You could trade him. Get whatever you get back in the draft.
Ah, running back in the draft, we've obviously seen that work out with plenty of teams with, you know, the Browns.
Zika was drafted.
He was good for many years.
You know very well with your with your boy, CMC Alvin Kamara.
So you can find people in the draft.
You don't necessarily have to, you know, have that number two number one draft pick.
So I could see that moving on and, you know, trying to trying to get a piece or something. Probably.
And I definitely wouldn't be against it.
I like Sai Cuando I do think he's really good, but I just think that that offensive line is well, absolutely kills him when they never give him a chance to do anything anyway, So why hold on to somebody that you can't even use? Yeah, I mean, he's got great trade value.
I mean, there's no question there's teams that will probably give up a lot for him if they have a good old line teams with without a running back that really need one.
I think they could get a nice package for him.
So I mean, if the right deal is there and it's kind of impossible to turn down, I think they do it.
I just I don't see why give up on him so early.
I know these injuries has been kind of injury prone to start his career, but when he is fully healthy, he he's put up some good numbers and and we really didn't even get to see what he could do this year.
I mean, that first game against the Steelers defense, I mean, he had no chance.
He really couldn't do anything.
Second, he had the handoff used five yards in the backfield with five Steelers on himself.
I think if they get the right trade, package it, they should consider it.
That was our last game to recap.
Let's go into the predictions, Josh, how are we doing? How are we doing? So just give me e quick.
Oh, my gosh! And I'm the one that's on professional.
Man, I'm not happy.
I didn't even because our next segment is predicting the games.
And I didn't even have the week 14 schedule up.
So it's fine with me.
Yeah, but, you know, I'm assuming here that I'm gonna come out on top once again because, well, I'm just, you know, im pretty.
So you said crazy. Good.
Now, that is what we love to hear, not even like to hear love it.
Big fan of that.
Let's see how I did.
Oh, gosh, the anticipation is simply killing me.
You know what? I'll never root for injuries, but, uh, Gibson going down really saved me in fantasy because there's no chance is kicking window.
I mean, I shouldn't say that because I said that the other week and somebody I don't know who the kid had, but he literally put up, like, 40.
, I think he had DK.
And he was down by a bunch last week and he put up, you know, a solid like 45 beat me somehow.
So let me keep my mouth shut.
But Gibson only got him 1.
4 points, so I'll take that.
Okay, honey, you went 11 and one.
Oh, my God, E am. Unbelievable.
Okay, I went 84.
Even when you do good, you can't do you eat it.
If the Seahawks won, like, you would have had the perfect perfect Sunday.
So you're heading overall record of 115 53 1, and I am now at 99.
So this is all right? It's just got a little bit.
A little bit worse for me.
It 16 game, different style. Wow.
Yeah, they know they didn't score, but they picked it off on Washington has now defeated the Steelers.
You're serious? I am.
It is 2017 at the two minute warning.
The dealers only have, I think, do they have one time out? May be too. I don't know.
They're in commercial right now.
I just went to commercial, though.
Did you have some money on that one, Josh? It was my only chance at having any positive vets.
I was part of a parlay from yesterday, and that's all I needed Was the Steelers to win today, babe.
the pain, the pain and betting is just unparalleled.
It really is e mean, z e.
That just is painful.
There is nothing like it.
All right, but let's get into our week 14 predictions.
We will start off on Thursday night with my Patriots going up against the Rams.
You know, it's kind of hard for me.
It is, You know, it's ah, you know, repeat matchup of our Super Bowl where Bill absolutely outcoached McVeigh.
Uh, you know, I'll stick with my boys were playing pretty solid.
Go with the Patriots.
Yeah, I'm going to Patriots, too.
I think they're getting in their group now, so I think they're going to keep it going here.
Next up, we got the Titans and the Jags.
I'm gonna go with the Titans.
I know they just got, you know, brakes being off of them.
But it's the jag, So let's be real here.
Hey, man, the Jags Almost just one, though.
They've been they've been in some tight games with Mike Glennon out here slinging the rock, but not wrong.
I'm never gonna pick them going with titans.
Then we got the Vikings and the Buccaneers, uh, coming off the bye week.
I got to go with the bucks.
You know, it's it's tough here because I hate the bucks, and I don't I don't trust I.
Also, the Vikings have been pretty inconsistent.
That deepens kind of ***, but, you know, I've got to take some risks.
Now, after you go, I am going with the Vikings.
Just I'm gonna have to put that I'm at the tattoo.
That somewhere on the next time we got the Chiefs and the Dolphins, I think this is pretty easy And going with the Chiefs for obvious reasons.
I mean, this could turn out to be a good game, though.
I mean, to it hasn't been amazing putting amazing numbers, but their defense has been pretty good.
But I still think the Chief Scott and with this one, Then we got your boys the Panthers up against the Broncos.
You know what? I'm going with your boys.
I think they're gonna bounce back.
I'm hoping McCaffrey's back.
Yeah, man, Broncos don't stand a chance.
We're gonna blow him out.
Tgs going with the Panthers? Oh, yeah.
Next up, I wonder.
I really, truly wonder how much of a difference it would make him.
You didn't pick the Panthers every week e o due to do because, I mean, it's only worked like a couple of times way got the Texans and the Bears not, you know, maybe not the best of games.
But I still think the show and watch this fun to watch.
And just because of that, I'll go with the Texans.
Yeah, I'm going with the Texans to.
This man needs a win e mean he's literally putting up M V P numbers and and still has no chance to win these games.
It's unbelievable what they're doing. A death.
It looks like it's like they took took notes from the Colts.
I have to not protect anybody.
Then we got the Cardinals and the Giants.
You know, looking back a few weeks, this might not have been very entertaining, but like you said, Giants were playing well.
We're kind of struggling. Kyler Murray with that shoulder.
I don't know how you know healthy.
Uh, even with that being said, you know what? I'm going with the Cardinals.
I think I think I was gonna bounce back, maybe his shoulders healthy for some unknown reason.
I'm going with the Giants.
I e don't know, man.
I just I'm not gonna have them give me another l like they did this weekend.
Not dealing with that.
Then we have probably the worst game of the week with the Cowboys and the Bangles.
Don't know why you would watch this unless your name is Perry or Michael.
But I will go with the Cowboys.
I guess I'm just gonna go with the Bangles because, I mean, I don't know who's gonna win this game.
No, no, I have no idea.
I'm gonna give the Bangles a chance.
Uh, you might have a chance.
It's It's forth, its fourth, and, uh, it's forced out right now.
They just got to stop.
So the football team is gonna pump it away.
We'll probably have about I'll give you 18.
20 seconds to go down the field.
That big help Married to chase Claypool.
Big men hell married to chase people.
I'm calling it now because let me tell you something.
If I get this right, I wanna be on ESPN bleacher report everywhere.
So I'm manifesting it to send send a pass rushers.
Claypool, Just listen, if you if you hit this part like I deserve some of the money too, because I just I just spoke into existence.
I spoke it into existence for you.
I'll give you, like, high five virtually.
I've never just like somebody more in my life, But let's go to he, Coles and the Raiders.
The Colts, you know, snuck out of wind yesterday.
It's not gonna win against the Jets.
I don't know how much you really even count that.
Uh, you know, I'm gonna go with the Colts and the Raiders just haven't been impressed with these last couple weeks.
Yeah, I'm going to colts to their defense is really good.
And like you said, the Raiders have been really bad recently.
Then we got the Jets and the Seahawks.
Russell Wilson might get back into the M V P conversation just because of this game.
And I was also wrong.
I thought they were punting.
Uh, they're kicking a 45 yard field goal.
Oh, so so you know what they missed? They missed this.
Get a few plays down the field.
You know you have a chance.
You have a chance, you know.
Ah. Blocked kick.
Then we got back to the predictions.
We got the Packers and the Lions pretty easily going with the Packers here.
Yeah, Definitely taking the package to Wow, what a what they are.
Oh, he made it. Yeah, he made it.
Yeah. Kate could turn touch.
Um, yeah, I will **** myself.
17 eso They need that hell married to chase Claypool.
Like I said, stupid week of football to What is it really is now? We got the Falcons and the Chargers.
It's Wow, You know what? Whatever team is winning in the third quarter, I would bet against them.
But I Okay, man, I don't know.
You know, I'll go with the charges because I like them.
Yeah, Um, Anthony Lynn is probably gonna have the worst game plan ever and then give the most robotic answer toe why it happened.
So I'm gonna give the Falcons.
Samaki goes into women now we have the football team and the 40 Niners.
This could be a pretty solid matchup.
As we see the football team is playing pretty well.
I'm gonna go with them.
I'm gonna go with Washington? No, the 40 Niners.
I think they're think they're really good team again.
Washington just gave the Steelers their first loss of the year.
But you just took out on the 40 Niners.
Then we got these Saints and maybe the no.
This game is gonna be so weird.
Like go back to the union season.
If I told you Taysom Hill versus Jalen hurts.
It was a starting quarterback matchup.
How would you have felt? But that's what it probably will be with these Saints and the Eagles.
No, I'm going with saying that you have to.
The Eagles have been just terrible, you know, I e really? If Jalen hurts, is this starting? I really want to take fairly, but still it when I don't think it'll happen.
Taysom Hill actually look like a good quarterback yesterday.
So I'm going to say, See, here's my confusion with Taysom Hill.
Yesterday was his first ever passing touchdown.
Yeah, like I feel like I've definitely seen him throw some dots.
I can't believe you never had a touchdown, but whatever stats don't lie, I guess Let me go to the Sunday night game rounding it out we have the Steelers and the bills as the, uh, no flag.
No flag, but yeah, we got the Steelers and the Bills.
I'm going with the Bills because the Steelers have just not been good.
Um, now I'm gonna go with the Steelers.
I don't know. I'm trust Papua.
And it's official.
The Steelers have lost, by the way.
Uh, listen, that's why I told you I had to take it. I had to take a break.
So no more betting for me for a little bit.
Yeah, just just save the money.
It's a lot better seeing the bank account.
Okay, well, moving on from football real quick to get You know, this this will probably be will Not probably This is my conversation.
Because, as we all know, Josh isn't the biggest baseball fan, but, uh, apparently, the MLB today said told teams to get prepared to not play with a universal D H.
You know, I tweeted out on the MLB account, tweeted out, you know, on county chats and everything like that.
I just don't understand baseball.
It was something that the people really enjoyed, You know, not having pictures hitting anymore because you know what? Ah, good pitching, Good hitting pitcher bats like 1 10.
Nobody wants to see that.
You know, players in the N L who were playing very well in the TH position.
It just makes everything more fun. There's more offense.
There's, you know, there's more things happening and he was like, You know, we'll get rid of it.
What's the point? There isn't literally not another major sport that has something like this.
It's not like the the East.
The Eastern Conference has a three point line at 25 ft, and then the Western Conference has the three point line at 30 or the the A F C.
You can't kick field goals in the NFC.
I just don't understand what the whole point of not having universal THS and the fact that they took it out again blows my mind.
Obviously, I feel like, you know, I don't know if you ever seen that me and was like, I hate him all my homies hate him.
That's how I feel like all baseball fans feel about Rob Manfred like, I don't know if there really was his decision.
I assume it was because you are the commissioner.
So it's so annoying, Like please believe it alone something, you know, they always say, If it's not, if it ain't broke, don't fix it and listen.
Last season, it wasn't broke, so stop.
Stop doing things.
Just leave it alone.
Universal D H makes everything better.
Nobody wants to see some random.
A pitcher coming up to bat, taking three strikes down the middle or attempting to bunt like who in their right mind generally says that that is fun.
I just don't understand it, but that's my little my little baseball round.
But don't worry.
When baseball season comes around, Josh is gonna be the biggest baseball fan of all time.
Like I'm getting him into baseball, he's gonna be on backstop.
Answer everything like that.
No, I do not see that happening, man.
Oh, it's happening.
You're coming on backstop banter within at least the next month.
Oh, come on, Do.
But I don't know, I'll be able to control I'll introduce myself.
We're gonna do a baseball one on one class.
But we will move it on to the N Ba.
Yes, The Steelers are 11 and one, Josh.
I know it hurts you.
You know, Josh, can you Do you know what that is? Earned? Runs average.
See your our baseball savant, As they say, the smartest baseball fan I know clearly clearly what we went onto the before we before we head on out of here.
Some news, of course.
We got Russell Westbrook traded to Washington in exchange for John Wall.
You know the question.
Really? Here is who won the trade, and I'll let you go first because I have an opinion that I feel like some people just don't agree with.
Yeah, I mean, I think Washington one trade Russell Westbrook is an M v P Calvary type of player.
I think he's really gonna benefit from Russell Westbrook being there.
I don't like it because I was really looking forward to seeing John Wall and Bradley Bill on the court together again.
I'm a big John Wall guy, So I was I was really looking forward to that.
But I think Washington very clearly won the trade.
I mean, a lot of people have been joking.
You basically traded Russell Westbrook for Russell Westbrook.
So it Z kind of kind of like that because very similar players.
But Houston did get a first round pick out of it, which which helps them because we have all their first round pick.
Yes, we dio and I feel bad for John Wall now because he's not gonna be ableto have the same type of role.
I don't really know what they're going to use him as because James Harden is He's gonna be isolating a lot.
And John Wall is not a spot up shooter.
You can't knock down threes.
We saw how that worked with Westbrook there didn't.
Didn't do anything well.
And actually, we don't even know if heart is gonna be there by the time the season starts.
He's not going to training camp, bring things, So I think that's that's an interesting situation.
But Washington, I think they're gonna be a threat in the playoffs.
Could maybe steal a couple games, because if Russell Westbrook can get back to the M v P style of basketball.
Bill just came off the best season of his career, got hot.
You more is gonna be improving throughout the year.
So I think it will be interesting.
But I don't think this trade really does anything It z just It's just a trade.
They need to get rid of Westbrook it.
Washington got rid of wall, so I think All right, well, then, maybe my opinion isn't so out there.
I literally think that this is the most useless trading MBA. Esther.
It's like I feel like this.
Did I feel like it did absolutely nothing for either team.
And honestly, I guess if I did have to pick a winner, I feel like I would agree with you with the Wizards because you don't know what John Wall is coming off an Achilles injury.
I think we all I think a lot of people have faith in K d coming off of it because he's just a generational talent.
He can create his own shot.
He didn't really depend on his athleticism to do what he had to dio.
So John Wall is the complete opposite.
I feel like he was all about explosion he was, you know, probably the fastest player with the ball in his hand, you know, dribbling down court and everything like that.
But I feel like it does absolutely nothing for either team.
And I mean, Perry is right here.
They were both, you know, kind of annoyed new places.
The Rockets do get that first round pick, which is solid for them, I guess.
But I don't know.
I just feel like it doesn't do anything I don't know.
And I know the Rockets got that first round pick, but I don't I just I just wouldn't want wall.
Like I said, You don't know what he is coming off of that Achilles injury.
That's what scares me the most.
At least, uh, and then I could have gotten a better package from New York.
You could have absolutely e mean, even if it's like Frank, Neil Akina or Kevin knocks.
At least it's a young guy with potential.
Not not John Wall just came off of like what's normally a career ending injury.
E the only other thing, too.
I don't know how it worked with matching salaries and everything like that, Yeah, e feel like they definitely could have found a way.
I mean, New York has a tonic cap space.
The only people they're paying is really Julius Randle and now offered Peyton.
So I think there would have been able to work out a deal there, maybe swap out for Peyton, for for Westbrook.
So I just I don't get I think that just because there are reports weeks ago that they were talking about a trade like this and then they kind of died down.
I feel like Washington just called.
They're like, Hey, let's just let's just do it like it's just swap.
Yeah, You know what? Screw it. Let's get it done.
I don't like the trade.
I hate it, but this is what it is.
Well, that will do it for for this one.
But, you know, before we go, of course, we love challenge flags.
We thrive with challenge flags because this is where we get thio, make fun of each other.
So, Josh, go ahead.
You know, I usually let you go first on these things because there isn't really many things for me to be wrong on, so I'll just let you go ahead trying to think of, okay? I mean, I don't even know.
What do you say? It's stupid today.
You know, I'm not even to use our challenge fighting on one of your opinions.
I'm going to use a challenge flag on you.
Just saying that because I When did I say wrong things? I went 11 and one.
My opinions on football are great.
I mean, come on.
Is Matt says I'm a wise man.
I might have to steal.
I might have to, you know, somehow.
Still, why is cheese and not making wise cheese? Obviously, because screw the Packers.
But why is something, um you know what, man? Good job today. That Zobaie.
You know, I I appreciate that I I honestly dio because, you know, sometimes it's about biting the bullet.
And I think you know what? Let's be real here.
Ah, fantastic job.
E Think I think we're the best show around.
I mean, I still think you're crazy for the wind steak.
A, uh, question when Sylvania will rise again.
Went pee once, BB, listen, here's the thing.
If I didn't pick him as my dark horse.
And I was joking around.
I would have dropped this weeks ago, but I picked it.
I'm sticking with it.
This man might have every turn over the Eagles have ever had this season.
But you know what? It's not his fault. The team is bad.
I'm blaming it on a In all seriousness, though.
How crazy is it that Andy Reid could lose coordinators Bill Belichick and was coordinators Doug Peterson lost Frank.
Right? And they have no idea what to dio like.
You have not been the same since he laughed.
Like they literally have no idea how to play football anymore.
That should be frank, right on that statue.
Outside with false.
It definitely should not be.
Don't keep sending me that mean he's blown up ever since then.
Yeah, I don't I don't know what is going on in Philly.
I think that situation is gonna be very fun moving forward.
But that will do it for this edition of which boys make sure you check out my book.
I know that me and, uh, me and Josh might be having to stay away real quick because, you know, I gotta gotta save this money, and I'm not.
I'm on a losing streak here.
It's Christmas time.
We got to get that. Like I gotta buy presence.
I've Listen, I've spent an absurd amount of money recently.
Got some shoes, jeans, some shirts, jerseys.

The Jersey collections coming pretty soon Josh is not gonna be the only one with jerseys back.
