What's up? What's up? What's up? What's up? I am back a day later than I said I would be, but that's for very good reason.
I was kinda hoping to get some more, uh, rock solid news on who would be the starter at quarterback for the Panthers this upcoming weekend against the Cardinals.
That news had not come yesterday, so I was like I couldn't drop my video talking about the game.
Couldn't drop my video talking about the quarterback, so I really couldn't get on stream.
Talk about very much.
There's a few topics that I talk about.
My YouTube last night dropped two videos.
One was was asking about whether or not what were those videos.
Actually, Africa with videos were dropped.
Uh oh, yeah, when we talk about Cam Might Mr Giving us the Cardinals and the other was asking the same question I'm talking about in this stream, and that's whether Colin Kaepernick is or maybe is not the answer for the Panthers.
And this would not be a shell a John's dream on sportscaster, if actually doing pretty good.
Now I'm gonna say, if my cat was not asking to come in or out the room while I'm streaming.
She will probably be one believer in a second.
She's looking right now, like while you're talking so loud.
But until she makes that move to the door and starts crying, let's get into this topic right here because it's a pretty important one.
And I think this is one on high, and I don't think this is definitely a topic that, for sure, splits the fan base.
There's half a fan base who who sees that the team has to do something.
Look, Cam ain't right.
His shoulder, his foot, maybe its accuracy.
Maybe it's a game planning.
Maybe it is a lot of things that could be, but a few things are.
There's a couple of things that is for sure.
We know for sure, his flips injured.
We know for sure his accuracy, even in a clean pocket and all that great.
And we know for sure that he is not getting time in the pocket so he doesn't get those clean pocket opportunities to pass with you.
No good security very often or not often enough, not with enough consistency to allow him to get into a rhythm of passing with the protection, so end up seeing ghosts.
And that's what happens when you give your quarterback a different left tackle every year off his career.
And this year is left tackle isn't even a left tackle.
His left tackle is a former All Pro right tackle, and it don't matter for former All Pro or whatever it is.
Whatever risk a level is, if you're moving from right tackle to the blindside tackle, it's gonna be a hard job.
I is gonna be a really our job.
So we're still going out with Cam, some fans believe, and the backups we have between Will Greer and Kyle Allen now it's already been announced that Kyle Allen hold love.
This is the moment I've talked about.
All right, buddy Speculator will be back soon.
I'm sure of it with the door open.
But, uh, how Allan and Will Greer.
It's already been announced that if Cam can't go, it will be Kyle Allen who gets the start, and we've seen Col.
Allan and about one total game.
There was the Week 17 game against the Saints, where basically only half the starters played and the Saints looked like they were trying to do some third level Jedi mind tricks by purposely trying to lose the game.
It felt like even if they didn't have their starters in, they told their backups to not go all that hard.
And it probably was because the of the team being worried about in terms of what not It seemed like the Saints were saying to us, Look, we know you're 78 right now, but we cannot let you guys get to Ah, wait, you know, you're six and a right now six and nine.
You know your 69 now, But we can't let you guys get the six and 10 and get a better draft pick.
Here's a quick little win for you guys.
It don't really matter.
Teddy Bridgewater stunk it up in that game that I think Teddy Bridgewater was playing serious, but I know for a fact that defense was not No, the point is video, but I will go right in that game.
But he was utterly out playing that look good at all in the preseason.
I'll say it right now.
Neither one of the back of the quarterbacks on our roster right now look good at all at any single point in the preseason.
The best way to describe the two battles we have.
Kyle Allen looked pedestrian like Not good.
I won't say Not good.
No, no, Not impressive, No horrible, but nothing you would even mention in a footnote that the best thing you can say about Kyle Allen is that he won't tell you a bunch of picks.
But he's he's to me.
He seems like a game manager, in my opinion.
And then Will Greer had moments where he had some great moments.
Then he had some horrible moments, and we've had a look.
When we drafted Will Greer, it was pretty obvious.
I think people actually watch him play and actually look at look him up and saw what people are writing about him.
People are saying about him.
Where's evaluations? Where the Western in the system for Will Greer was kind of tailor made to make this to make it easier on him.
He had a lot of plays.
Where was one read? The play calling was immaculate.
They schemed guys wide open, and a lot of times he's reading half the field or only had one read in a play, so it wasn't the most the most difficult system to be a part of.
He obviously was talented in college.
He you just start your third in the Heisman votes.
You're very talented.
But Will Greer was always gonna be a project player.
So it wasn't really much of a surprise to me to see he had some struggles as a rookie in his first preseason.
It's okay with me.
I'm cool with that.
But I'm not cool with is no, I won't do that will say that.
That's 1/2 fan base.
The other have a fan base, uh, things that we don't have.
What we need in that may be a backup to come in.
There's Matt Cassel available.
Been throwing around a little bit, but Sam Bradford? I'm really games injured while we about why sign a guy in Sam Bradford who he could have been a really good NFL quarterback.
I think Sam Bradford always had the skills to be a good NFL quarterback.
But there's one thing about Sam Bradford that you cannot use can't forget about it.
The dude's injury prone, the dude is the dude is bad.
It glass he'ii and we're gonna need the field.
He has good footwork.
He can throw the ball, but you touch him.
Are you gonna look at it with a stink out? Once you get him, get my mean look.
And in Sam Bradford's you going down, he's going down.
Any going to that tent? And he don't cut the check for the next 10 to 16 weeks.
But when it comes to another guy whose name was thrown in the mix in with the name you hear a lot, it's name.
You always see her every single time anybody's Corbett goes down anytime.
Any quarterback is looking bad and the backup's looking worse.
Colin Kaepernick Colin Kaepernick's name was brought up here and have been getting brought up here for a minute now, thinking about it for a couple years back when it was rumored That was it.
It wasn't Jay Z.
Diddy. Diddy Puff.
Hi. What was his name? Now I only know.
But when it was rumored that Sean Diddy Combs was gonna be buying the Panthers two years ago, conch optics name was in the mix heavily.
Jay Z and even more recently, when Jay Z got his role in the NFL and I won't get into that.
How how Jay Z was Ah, Colin Kaepernick ally.
And then once the men like you, he he refused.
He publicly refused to do the Super Bowl and told other artists, not soup bowls. Well.
And then he signs this mega deal with the NFL to be like you to be the guy who, who who's whose record label controls the halftime shows.
He went from denying one halftime show to signing a contract that lets them being control off, lets his left record label being control of all the halftime shows for a set number of years seems fishy to me.
And then his ah is social justice.
Partnership with the NFL is just a bunch of T shirts and in cross genre collaborations, I think the 1st 1 is like is like Wiz Khalifa.
Uh, Meghan Trainor is someone else seemed unaware to me, but this does not go off topic here.
The last guy, Colin Kaepernick.
This is a guy who was definitely even if he was split any fan base between like Look, we can't have what we have right now at quarterback, and do we really do we really already? That desperate tohave calling Kaepernick and the reasonings for not liking him range from allowed to the things I mean from people thinking he's not the quarterback anymore.
People thinking that that Niners team he was on was actually good at the later stages of his career.
That team could not be the Dolphins this year.
That Niners team was a belt.
I'll s ally that dock.
That night, his team probably couldn't be the Giants.
They probably couldn't be the Giants about the same level of the Giants.
Or maybe even the the cards.
The cards have talent, though.
I would say that about the same level of those two teams.
Now that the Dolphins this year on a whole different level of trash of ass of garbage.
Look, I can't I can't win with it with a sound mind and body.
Compare any NFL team in history to this Dolphins team this year.
Even the only 16 Brown has some talent in the Dolphin, and they weren't trying to win the Dolphins trying to lose.
The Dolphins are actively trading with all their players but Colin Kaepernick's name always gets brought up because of his history.
I mean, the dude the dude did lead a team to the Super Bowl and almost did it in almost won that game.
Maybe you could make the argument.
He should have one ring and that he was one play away.
One play call away from making trouble again.
I think that play was against the Seahawks and 2013 right with a 2013.
It is the Seahawks.
I think I'm right about that.
I could be wrong, but But since you lied for a few years, people say, Well, he's not the league.
So he can't be a good quarterback even though, didn't it? Josh Johnson, who was out the league for like five years.
They was 3 to 5 years and he never done anything in his career.
I don't even know about him.
Honestly, I had no clue.
He got signed to the Redskins and we're seeing guys like we're seeing guys like uh, like Luke Falk.
Matt Moore, who's been garbage, has to play for the Panthers.
At one point I think you went from the Panthers to the Dolphins, not sure who's with now.
But the point is, no matter how you feel about how Colin Kaepernick played at any point in his career at his lowest point, his career on a garbage squad with the Niners there's not a single way.
There's not a chance that you believe that there's there's what 64 quarterbacks in this league definitely better than Colin Kaepernick.
And he has already mentioned that.
You know, he wouldn't take less money and he would take a backup role.
So and that's the only thing that will bring up.
They say, Well, he wants 20 million.
I think he was just saying he wanted 20 million from the A F, so they couldn't just drag him out there on a cheap contract for horse and pony showing benefit off them, being there for one week.
Whatever I it's been reported.
I don't know if it's confirmed or anything.
But after reported by his agent that he would take less money and he would even join a team as a backup.
My cat's crying, but but there's another issue with Colin Kaepernick and that's the whole issue of him possibly being a distraction, which I understand there was.
There was a lot of talk about that with air. Agreed.
When the painter signed Eric Reid, people were saying that it would be a distraction if what will be toxic for the team? It will be.
It would be a a media circus every other week.
I've got to see it.
I've got to see it. Now. Hold up now.
All right. My cat had the well again.
She'll be in here for about two minutes, and then she will leave.
You don't know about again, but, uh, yeah, people say that happen with Eric Reid and I have seen it yet.
We have a couple of late hit on his resume since come to Carolina? Sure, but that has nothing to do with him kneeling.
Uh, the biggest media circus around Eric Reid has been him talking about how the league's been been, Ah, randomly randomly drug testing him.
Give them piss tests.
Uh, Mostel, times of the year now randomly could mean randomly.
I think I think what happens is it's not actually random.
And the way that you think of random like you don't think Reynolds hasn't like there's a list of all the thousands of players in the NFL and they choose you.
And it is like a randomizer that uses a random number, and that player gets picked.
It's just random in the sense that you don't know what is coming.
So technically, a random drug test could have the same person taking a drug test every week, and I just wouldn't know it.
They just want to know that there's gonna be coming every week.
But that's not the spirit of randomness, although they do make it kind of clear that that random isn't exactly random in the classical sense.
But But he hasn't been a distraction from the team.
If they have anything, the team's kind of rallied around him and in the community.
Half the community has Alabama's well, but that brings us back to whether or not Colin Kaepernick is the answer for the kind of Panthers and my answer.
And my video was maybe I said he could be a help, but I did say with certain stipulations, I think he could, but not yet.
That's not me being like worried about calm like Oh man, I don't know if it's gonna be a good look.
What? What? Well, the fans say what? What we're gonna do.
He's not integrated into the system yet.
Look, we do have We do have Kyle Allen.
We have Will Greer.
Now, it's gonna be an issue for all for me at all.
If we had a little panicky Castillo had Nicky was the best backup quarterback on the team.
He has been for a minute.
He had to have set some to somebody that they didn't like.
And, uh and I guess he has kind of been a team anymore because he was obviously the best quarterback the best backup quarterback on the squad for since since last year.
It was very obvious.
But I've talked about that for a minute for way too long now.
So we have Karl Allen.
I mean, the way I figure it is, ain't no team in the NFL really gonna sign Colin Kaepernick.
You feel me like the Jets need to write.
The Jets need to sign him.
The Jets will not sign him.
You feel me? Mason? Rudolph. For the for the Steelers.
Mason Rudolph could be good. You never know.
He was a unit there around.
Pick what? Last year? Last year.
And what's funny about that is you remember Witness do is actually drafted him and, like a week or two later been upto Bill saying something like he was.
He was mad a team saying how he was like, actually pissed because it was like saying, Ah, house something.
Team win now, Are you saying they should have got a weapon on offense or or Stone on defense? You could start for them.
And just when they need it, like backup quarterback with 1/3 round pick, he was saying, Maybe, maybe, maybe was the fourth round pick based.
It was It was a middle on early middle.
It wasn't like fifth, and it wasn't second.
But the point is, you're saying that Mason Rudolph was a waste of a pick because it wasn't helping the Steelers out that season.
It looks like a pretty good picture me now because the very next season big been goes down and he cannot play for the rest of this season.
He might be done for the first career.
He only had one more year on the contract.
You just have the extension that for this season, so I think he's done unless he goes somewhere else.
But we'll see how Mr Rudolph looks for the Steelers that Jags have garner Minshew right? Is he had the Jags.
I think it's gonna mince you.
The Jags don't look good.
Nick Foles proposed to their savior this man.
This man, Nick Foles, pulled the ultimate finesse.
The Duke played so well for the Eagles, filling in for a guy who was injury prone, played better than that guy who was an M V P candidate.
Plays Jess well enough or plays way above his station, gets a big contract and then immediately gets her.
And he made that guarantee money.
Make sure he signed on that dotted line, made that money.
And then, I mean, we got her so still cashing them.
So I don't think the Jags necessarily are looking at calling right now.
Also in the Jets.
Maybe don't need calm right now, who knows, Because I mean, I don't know how long Model s.
I never got mono when I was a teenager, a kid or whatever, but who knows how long it's gonna last? But right now the Jets whole team that the only player on the Jets team right now, those two is Jamal.
Then there's Ah.
Then there's, uh, Levian, so I can hate him, too.
Well, I can't even that bad, because it's only two players off 32 or little of 22 who are starters.
But, uh, yeah, I think the only there's a couple realistic spots were calling to drop right now.
Ah, but I would I would say that I wouldn't be against Colin being signed the Panthers, but the smart thing to do would be to go ahead and see what we have right now.
Now we do have two backups, like I said, but I would not have.
Will Greer play a single snap this year? What's the point the anti will rear would ever accomplish by playing game this season would be getting hurt.
Our O line isn't really all that dependable.
I don't know the the offensive scheme is so weird like ah, but check down to Christian McCaffrey and maybe looking upfield at some point now, that could possibly be because of Cam's shoulder and, you know, doing and I guess, keeping around that a little bit.
I want to see how we look with Kyle Allen this week.
Do I home? And there's a thing to about that without without a proper a quarterback that we could depend on.
I can see this team running Christian McCaffrey into the ground.
I mean, and we saw what the Bucks did.
The buck said, We're gonna man up Christian McCaffrey.
Have another guy shadowing like he's in his own or he's on someone else.
But he's always going too quick.
Little glance every few seconds to see where Chris McCaffrey is.
Make sure all about I know I'm right here, but this in case Christian gets that ball, I might leave my assignment and and go over to him.
It's like he was really 60 40 on Christian.
But he also had another, another possibility where he would just sneak.
You'll be, like, kind of halfway in halfway out of that assignment, but really looking at Christian, and that's kind of what the book is on the cards offense.
If you can maybe stop Christian McCaffrey, you can stop.
See Mac, then you can stop the whole team.
Chris McCaffrey was.
He was stuck in the Snuffy.
He was stuck in the Snuggie and it was not pretty against the Buccaneers.
Now we do put the fact that the the the cards, my blood, we do play the Cardinals.
But I'm not really a It should be.
It should be a mop job.
That should be easy. Quick one.
You know, Quick Little start this season off one and two, which is not what you really want to be, but it's a hell of a lot better than Oh, and three, huh? But if the game plan is the same, game plan has always been or has been for the last couple of years.
Last since last year.
In these 1st 2 games, where Chris McCaffrey is in the game for 100% of the snaps, it's not gonna be good.
It's not gonna be good, because what do you do? Pack the box? I mean, in this situation, you really can just packing the box since have have eight in the box.
Because once you think is gonna happen, either the team's gonna have Chris McCaffrey running it are questions gonna be getting the ball in either.
In the backfield are in a quick little hitch.
Or you could stop that really quickly with those guys in the box or need to send pressure.
They're gonna pass sim pressure, see how cow Alan reacts to having pressure in his face.
So, you know, if you don't have a actual competent quarterback in your backfield and you already and teams already know what your game plan is coming into that game because it's the same game when you have the last 18 games in a row, it really does Open up bacon.
D'oh! It limits you because you're already limited and it really just lets them do the one thing that really set you up and you can try.
You can try to exploit it, try to exploit it.
I think teams would be more willing to say, OK, way, let up a big play here, there I We're cool with that, but you're gonna have it was gonna happen every single time, and at some point you're gonna collect your bread and butter off Chris McCaffrey, or that's going to say, let anyone else get theirs.
But if we stop Christian Weaken, do enoughto beat the Panthers now that might not work as well for the Cardinals, and this clip right here might just come back to bite me because I have seen too much that that really impresses me about the team so far, the defense in general. It's all right.
Too much of the defense is a few things going on with Dante.
I don't like Ah, sometimes you don't wrap up the right way and tackling.
But for the most part, I'm like what? I've been seeing him offensively.
We aren't The problem is I.
I just went over.
The problem was offensively, but as Faras, as far as quarterback play goes, Colin Kaepernick couldn't help.
But I'm thinking that Just give it a second.
Give it a minute.
See how this week goes.
If we can't beat the Cardinals, look, if we can't beat the Cardinals with a backup quarterback, I you might have to look into you that you have two choices.
You have two choices.
We have three year 31 is one is let it rock.
Let that backup quarterback keep playing, let him keep playing and hope for the over the best.
Hope something happens.
Two you bring in a guy, you bring in a guy.
I guess that would hold up if we lose to the Cardinals and keep the backup in that kind of talk in the whole season but a season chalk up there because you're not gonna get you can't be the cards.
It's gonna be really hard to come back from Oh, and three with the respectable record and we ask the hard games on our schedule.
Both of our state's games are gonna be both when Ah, Drew Brees is back.
So I don't get a cake.
Walk there again, Teddy Bridgewater again.
We're gonna be playing.
The Seahawks will be playing the Texans after this card game.
We have the Redskins who look kind of bad, but and a lot to you look worse.
So give me some pretty hard games for our backup to take.
If we do get the backup in there, you can force Cam back in.
Even though he's hurt.
Try to squeeze whatever you can to him and try to maybe get a couple wins this season.
Get some wins out of camp this season, or you bring in a veteran quarterback and try to see what you can do.
Those are three options.
Chalk it up, keep backups in there and get some experience.
Or let them, you know, take what it is.
Take what's coming.
Force came back in the game, which I would not suggest unless you're already just gonna go ahead and and Ah, move on from accepting the best course for camp would be to have a full season.
He can rest on like this.
Go from right now.
We three rest this year like camp set.
Let him recover.
Move on to next year.
Hopefully with a full year of rehab, he could do better for three.
Pick up someone is on the market right now.
Maybe, uh maybe a Matt Cassel.
Definitely out of rock Osweiler, maybe a Colin Kaepernick, maybe a Colin Kaepernick.
Who knows? Man, I don't know if you know my full opinions.
Oh, my opinion was yesterday.
You going my YouTube channel? Most guys I only know I don't know, fell on sportscaster know about my YouTube channel, but it's in the semi bio on my pan.
I can't put links in my bio, but if you can even copy and paste that, uh how do we know much about me? First of all, I'm allowed to You know what types of my jet in? Ah, sportscaster.
So who knows? Who knows? We're not doing a really good enough job of, ah, of marketing or promoting the sportscaster Paige.
