Hey, what's up, guys? Luke from unwrapped sports here to talk to you on this beautiful Monday morning about the football.
All right, I think God is back.
First of all, um, in second of all shots of exciting stuff.
Unfortunately, the past one yesterday in dominant fashion, something I was way off about, I really thought, uh, they would come out a little slow.
No, David Andrews.
Um, I thought it was full of them down at least a little bit.
I thought Pittsburgh would hang in it, and then the pass would kind of take away.
Go away at the end.
You mean Brady does this thing, but Nope.
I was a complete domination from start to finish.
I'm pretty shocked.
I was I was most off on that game out of any game that I had talked about this week.
Um, yeah, it was just not a good showing for the steel is online.
Didn't look great.
It looks like they really missed Antonio Brown.
Big bang kind of looked traveled out there, and it didn't look like the same guy we had seen.
And I'm not gonna deal with new weapons and things like that.
Um, juju was unlocked down.
I mean, that's what the path to do.
They shut down everybody's number one and then gonna rely on guys like Dante Moncrief, who was non existent during that game, even though he had, like, 10 targets, um, just wasn't there, they couldn't get the ball moving at all.
Um, and it was just Yeah, it was a bad showing.
Ah, but the pass is great.
I mean, defense.
We knew it was really good.
Um, they're old line, uh, again was really good.
Their weapons on offense, even without a b.
Just Wow, man, they, uh, they're gonna be handful this year.
Um, better than I thought.
I'm gonna 12 and four.
And now I think they'll be probably 14 and two somewhere along the lines of schedules.
Not crazy. Tough.
This is one of the games I thought they would struggle with, because if there's any a time, the paths are gonna struggle.
It's really Come on.
See? Don't don't do that to me.
I don't even this Harley with the Pats.
But honestly, though they look good, they look good.
Uh, I hear it all night in my house.
Um, it's gonna be a rough time for anybody in the A F C East because the Bills and Jets didn't integrate.
The defense's look good, But again, I still think the past have the best defense in that division.
Uh, Brady didn't slow down at all.
Um, it's almost like tough to watch for someone who doesn't like them in any way, shape or form.
It hurts. It hurts.
He's 42 going on 22.
It just don't make any sense.
Um, it's so tough.
And then I'll just jump right into Ah for the biggest, almost watched game yesterday I was Cleveland, Tennessee and I would be most watched by the numbers.
But by the attention, I mean, people really wanted to see what cleanly could.
D'oh! I picked Tennessee and my football card spot check by.
Lou, What are you gonna do? I thought Tennessee look good, but Cleveland just looked a lot worse.
It looked like a team that had a first year head coach and a bunch of guys who hadn't played together.
It is what it is, you know, this.
I don't know why people thought they could just jump on the field, ban their Super Bowl contender up.
It's the Browns.
First of all, every rookie quarterback was a great, yet usually does take a step back.
And I don't trust Freddie Kitchens as a head coach.
It's his first year he was a running backs coach, and then he goes to wide receivers coach, and then he was an offensive coach.
And then he is all of a sudden, a head coach, all within a year.
It just seems too fast in too much.
I'm just not buying into it yet.
I'm not saying they'll be bad or Lee so big that because they're online machine Baker was just He made someone Bakelite place.
He's usually a guy who protects the football.
Um, it makes the smart afterwards, Rosen.
If he does throw a couple balls away or he does make a bad pick, it's usually in, um, under pressure.
You know what I mean is usually has some other factors, everything but he just makes a bad throws men and I think you got a little excited and I think you got a little antsy, Um, because you want to come out and prove them.
You want to go home for that? They were the team that they thought they were, and it's not that the hour, it's just they're not there yet can just lock that team yet and props to Tennessee.
The defense of line is great.
Better than I gave you credit for.
I still think their offense stinks something fierce outside of Derrick Henry, but they have an OK secondary paying a lot of guys back, their safety couple corners, a couple of former Pats.
Uh, but you know what I mean? That they're getting there.
I still think they're the third best team in that division behind the Colts and the Texans.
But it was good.
I'm glad for the Tennessee.
I think Mike Vrabel is a good coach and they put it into the hype right there.
And I love that.
Um, it's pretty cool to see.
I know I'm not a huge Oh BJ guy, so it's pretty cool to see them get, put me a place for at least the first game, at least the first game and just wanted to jump right into my colt since we were talking about the Titans, colts looked really good.
I mean, I was happy with it.
I mean, people were all down, and I said we were gonna be 89 and seven.
I still believe that, um, they look good against a very good team in the defense was good.
It was like a tailor to ass.
Almost rather, defense was shaky in the first half, and then they looked very good in the second.
Millie, Coco's pick was insane.
I'll watch that.
I'll replay for a good week and 1/2.
Um, I'm gonna wash it after this just yet.
But they look good per second. Take care of the ball.
We knew that we knew the offense wasn't crazy.
Explosive had some really good big plays borrowing back look great.
T y still did his things.
Like I thought that the tight ends would be as much of a factor in your friends.
Um, but yes, this is what it is you have t y Hilton Amal on Max.
So I think once passed, Campbell gets really situated into the offense and everything.
He's gonna be on rail stud and I think they could make some noise.
I think they could.
The old lines get it. It was good.
Don't get me wrong, but it's got to get a little better in the middle of the defense.
Just has to get more consistent tunnel rookies getting snaps tunnel rookies.
So yeah, and then on the other side of it, the charges look good.
I still think Philip Rivers is gonna take a step back.
He didn't do that.
Uh, but I mean, today, But he could, you know, fatigue.
All the quarterbacks.
We saw it happen.
I think he takes a step back as well, but yeah, they didn't really miss Melvyn board.
And I didn't think that was a good backup.
Um, he could catch the ball very well and a couple nights running plays Keenan Allen Still absolute monster.
So I really expected him to have a good game.
But he did, um, but all in all, it was it a pretty good, pretty good game.
I mean, some drama went down right to the wire.
Solid ot Colts defense gave it up in the end, but it is what it is.
It's the first game of the season.
Uh, we know what percent is.
He's worth every bit of that 15 million, and I'm happy with it.
I can't complain about any other coaching.
I thought they did a good job.
I just think military.
I hate to say this, but I'd rather be a year too early on somebody like the Pats and then get him over a year early than be a Yalie.
You know, it is what it is.
He's a legend, and you don't really wanna pull the current on the legend.
But if he can't make the simple kicks and it costs you in a game like that, it it re occurs, then you look like the charges a couple years ago when they had their taken fiasco and they couldn't find a guy to just get it through the upright, You know what I mean? So that was that was a tough one.
Uh, we'll see where that goes.
I'm sure they're already talking about it behind closed doors, but yeah, no little disappointed invented, Terry, but it is what it is on then.
Another game I wanted to get to was Arizona in Detroit.
I really thought Detroit would have smoked them like I thought they would have in the first half.
What, uh, they did for a little bit.
And then Kingsbury's offense kind of got some momentum.
And, like we've seen matched after doing the past, he hasn't always showed up for a full game.
You mean that Rob Pocket calls him stat passage, put the garbage time plays, but I do think they blew it.
Patricia's defense didn't hold up.
Staff couldn't consistently get the ball down the field and make plays.
The run game wasn't good, but Detroit's defense is the whole looked OK and then flip side at Arizona was terrible.
I think the defense thinks, um, I'm not sold on calamari yet even though we had a good fourth quarter on lt good family, I think he's gonna be okay again.
I don't think he was worth the first pick.
I don't think he was worth getting rid of Rosen, but I love dropped Rose and so little bit of a homer on that one.
But and yet I think they have to get more consistent.
He has to make the easy throws, and I just feel like you missed too many throws.
And even on the run, he wasn't as good as add the ties right away.
I know it's Game one.
But this kid was supposed to be a shop shooter on the run, extremely accurate.
He's got a big for a little dude.
And again, we just saw that the NFL games different.
I'm pretty sure for most of the game, his throne percentage was like 40%.
It was It was something God awful for awhile.
Absolutely God Awful.
And then they got a little momentum down the stretch and they tied it up.
When you see a time the NFL, it just makes me sick.
Shouldn't have it be like that, but it is what it is.
Um, couple little things I wanted to mention.
Seattle didn't look as good as I thought they would.
I don't want to talk too long on them.
Them in the bangle, really you? Nothing for me.
I love Russell Wilson, but I just don't see it for them.
This year was clear that their offense needs help.
Um, that's the Jaguars and in the Colts division, they horrible straight booty water.
Like I thought, um, they're just not just not a great football team.
The defense just isn't on the same page.
You can tell that Doug Marrone doesn't have a riel.
You're any real good reign over them.
It's just it looks like a lot of plays.
They kind of just forget who they are and who they were a couple of years ago, and I get Kansas City's great put they got you through absolutely chewed through.
Um, I know fools when output Nick Foles poop anyways.
I mean, as far is outside of a field uniform.
He hasn't proven anything.
Oh, and for that again, kind of a no show. Almost.
They don't really have a ton of offensive weapons.
Their line isn't great on the offensive side, they have a good defensive line.
But again, I just I just didn't think they look good.
I don't think they're good.
I think dog Morones on the hot seat and it'll probably go makes sense.
I wouldn't know.
I don't think they should get rid of Jalen Ramsey, but I wouldn't don't get shopped just because he's so valuable, and they could get a lot for him.
The kid's a stunned, though probably the best corner in the game, but again, it just doesn't show the again.
They just don't look like they're on the same page.
It's It's like two different teams out there.
It honestly is, um it Kansas said.
You look fantastic.
The defense is better than I thought it would be.
The pastor's look really, really good.
I didn't expect that, Um, right out the gate, but they got friend clock for a reason.
Um, yeah, they used a lot of different backs, which I figured they would have.
Um, let's see, Daniel limbs get a little more fantasy points would have been cool more than your solid there.
A Holmes is still that Dude, I wasn't sure of it, which I know sounds crazy, but he is that dude.
Um, the EVP campaign for the re P. M. V.
P campaign is starting off guns a blazing.
That's all I'll say.
And I just want to talk a little bit about tonight's games.
Um, I'm pretty sure the 1st 1 is the Texans versus the Saints.
I think, um, I think the Saints take a step back just a little bit.
I think there are 10 win team.
They have a tough division, even though Atlanta look, Pappu.
But I still think that, um, they're a good team.
Breeze is gonna have a little more fatigue.
It's gonna stop.
Earlier this year, it was clear last year his mom was not the same week 13 on.
It just was clear.
I don't care what anybody says they were robbed of the game or not.
They didn't win and did not go to the Super Bowl because he was not the same guy late in the season.
And I predict the same thing's gonna happen again.
You don't get better after age.
I mean, it's just not happening, especially physically.
He's still there mentally, but his arm just look bad.
Just really bad.
Um, I think Amar is good, but I do think they'll miss Ingram.
He was actually true it up for Baltimore, but I I like the Texans in this game up.
What Texans are good on the pre season. A lot of new pieces.
I don't clown, he's not there.
But you know they still have J J Water on the other side.
That's all that matters is tonsil help protect neutron walks? And hopefully, that dude is a treasure.
They need to keep him as healthy as possible.
Can he still that a little wide receiver depth? And I think it would be a lot for the Saints to handle out of the gate.
Um, do you like the same defense? I love Marcus Davenport on the A D line.
I use a softball this year.
I did see someone to really look out for.
He's really talented, and then the other game is Denver in Oakland.
It should be a shellacking from Denver.
I really don't see any reason they shouldn't beat Oakland veteran Every phase of the game.
The defense is much better.
They're often should be a lot better now that Derek has thrown a nobody, especially with all the chaos the Raiders had there not mentally ready to jump into the season.
I don't believe it.
Um, it's gonna be the same rate a team last year.
I believe with the better run game and um is a lot of pressure on Derrick Condo.
I mean, I know there was before because at least we could say he has it a number one guy now that he has toe make it work.
But now it's like there's nobody around you that kind of just looking to get him off the door.
At this point, if he doesn't play well, it is what it is.
I mean, I, uh I just I just hope it's an entertaining game.
I hate when games are on a prime time minutes, an absolute shit show.
But I think it's gonna be, I think, that Denver's defense is really good.
I think their offense is gonna be a lot better than people expect.
Not saying Flacco is gonna be the old Flaco, or even I know a lot of people weren't big into the old Flaco, but I think he'll be pretty good.
I think will be better than he was in Baltimore last year.
I think they're more all in on him.
Think they see Drew locks are even close to ready.
Um, but if if they could put it all together at least a little bit, I think they'll absolutely destroy the rate is, um yeah, I just I think the vandals gonna have that defense all over them.
And I wouldn't doubt if it's Ah, multiple untold game for Derek Op.
Just gonna throw that prediction out there.
Do what you will with it.
Uh, thank you guys for tuning in Unwrap sports were out here.
