What is going on? What is going on? What is happening out here? What's happening? What's that? You want something, buddy? Wanna hang out while I do this? All right.
Well, my to do this the whole time, that's just fine.
That's just fine.
We are here to talk about this game between the Panthers and the bucks.
That's gonna be coming up this Sunday.
An ungodly time.
An ungodly time indeed.
I guess unless you live in the U. K.
If you live in London or in that general time zone around the surrounding time zone, that is a good time for you.
What time is that game That makes it what? That's too dirty.
That's 2 30 The only reason I can imagine that they would have the game at 2 30 at that time rather than six dirty, which would kind of be around that.
That primetime area is for two reasons.
Either one, because that game that probably a sock early going on, maybe even creaky.
I don't know what's really popular in the UK, but I'm pretty sure cricket and soccer, obviously the two of the biggest sports around this worldwide, so I can imagine 6 30 or around that prime time slot time slot round.
There would probably be a not a good time to show football or or showing the games at 1 30 or around 2 30 in the UK is getting them used to seeing football around that time around that time slot, which pretty much coincides with the early time slots late for America.
Which makes me believe that the that the league is obviously looking at probably a five, a 10 year plan where hole up, probably a 55 or 10 year plan where they want to bring not just one team.
I'm thinking they're gonna do four teams at once.
I don't I don't see them doing like only one or two teams in the UK That will be kind of weird, although I mean, could London have London have two teams? London could probably host two teams.
I don't really know I was gonna work, but only having one team in London will be were first all you came to do.
One team that won't make the divisions lopsided.
I'm not sure how you would how you would.
Ah, internationalized the NFL.
But I mean, there's gonna be the one going to an NFL team or some sort of, ah NFL equivalent in London at some point, and I guess the reason they want to keep the games around that 1 32 30 time slot is to make sure that people just get in their head.
That ate around this time is when football happens, and eventually we can probably, I don't know, actually, cause that's their time and it'll I know that's a universal kind of time slot, but it wouldn't be universal it only relative to that area.
I have no idea, man is actually kind of strange to me, Uh, because every single American game is going to be later, and then every single UK game for us is going to earlier.
I actually do not know why they keep it in that time slot primetime show you, but it doesn't matter. It doesn't really matter.
The point is for right now actually know what you know what I feel like I am wrong because wasn't the game last week 1000.
London wasn't the one that bears in London last week holed up.
It's like the best schedule real quick because I'm pretty sure that belt the Bears game was in London last week and and ah, Bears Raiders.
Where was this? Because that game was at one o'clock, that game was at one o'clock with unusual Quick.
Maybe I'm wrong.
Windy City grinned.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the Bears and Raiders game it was in London.
Bears Raiders, London.
Yeah, yeah, that was in that game.
And that game was on at one o'clock for the Eastern time zone here.
So I actually don't know why The league has some games in London at one o'clock our time, which is six o'clock their time and why some games are 9 30 our time, which is like 2 30 their time.
That's really strange, actually.
Want answer to that, that because that's actually I I don't know why that is, and why going back to back weeks in London they would have two different times unless they're doing testing.
They don't like market testing to see our people in the UK, and we're likely to watch games at one or watch games at like six o'clock or people in America were likely to watch UK games at 9 30 in the morning or, you know, at one o'clock during the normal time slot at imagine, most people want to see but want to see ah game at one o'clock in the normal time slot.
But the publican yet regional maps and seeing like what? Teams in what areas? If like the Chicago or the Oakland, that area is waking up early enough to watch a 9 30 game.
I don't know how big business big international businesses work and how they work, and they strategize the the analytics and all that kind of stuff for for, ah, international games.
But the point is, apparently some games are in London are earlier than others in some games or later.
But the panthersfirst the Bucks is a really good match up here.
I think in my video, no, actually ended it out on my YouTube channel.
I talked about how I will go talk about how this game this rematch was probably one of the quickest rematches of all time because we put the Bears.
We've made the bucks and weak to, and we're now in a week six and I will find the box again.
But I mean, this happened just last year, but we had we had, ah St Falcon Saints, and it was a rematch after literally just one week in between.
So there's been quicker rematches.
I don't like playing the same team in our division twice before Week eight.
I'd rather be a little bit more time, especially it may, I guess, the bucks I didn't care too much about.
But then you see how bad the Falcons have been and kind of, I mean, how good the Bucks have been this year Now our first game with the Bucks was not a good one.
Miss Winston went 60 for 25 which is a pretty decent when you win.
That's four for five, right? Some like that.
There's about what that's it's about.
It is a good percentage, but, uh, but But he only got 200 yards and one touchdown vows, of course, got when Cam through 51 passes, got 300 yards, but I'm the whole do didn't do good.
I mean, you look at that, go through the numbers.
It was his battle around the Bucks only converted to third downs out of 12.
We weren't much better.
Three out of 14.
I mean this overall.
The game was bad.
We scored what I think was Ford feel Bulls in a safety No one did.
Christian McCaffrey, easily the best player so far this year, only got what, like 37 yards on the ground.
Uh, no one paid.
Barber didn't get many yards, although Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones split carries in split receptions for the book.
So that was to be, I mean, then neither one of them goes off all the way.
Any given Sunday Chris got one is really the only player who did.
Eight receptions, 121 yards and a touchdown.
Olsen got over 100 yards but didn't really do much with it.
It was a weird, bad game.
UT really looked all that great and then the Bucks went on to play really good and actually, But after that game, the Panthers went on to have a three game winning streak.
So it's like that game right there.
Even though we lost in the Bucks won, Both teams played bad, but since then Both teams have been playing really, really good.
I mean, like I said, both teams, well, I mean upper like this.
The Bucks are two and three, so that means that since that game they were one of one of that name, so they only 11 more game, and I lost, too.
But no matter how you split it, the books have looked good.
I mean, they won that game against the Rams.
They put up 55 on the Rams.
Okay, that's kind of tough, but, uh, you really can't.
You can't deny that.
Guess about everyone on that.
Teams look good.
He's only completing 60% of his passes, but 11 touchdowns, five interceptions and the guy's been having really good games.
I mean, he looks like a much different quarterback.
No matter how you think James has looked so far, it's probably looked a little bit better than you expected.
And that's probably to do a lot to do with Bruce Arians and with Byron Jones.
No Brian Leftwich, Byron Leftwich, uh, the old, the old Jags quarterback.
I think you want a different team as well, but Byron Leftwich who has he found his calling.
He wasn't really a great quarterback in the NFL, but I think being a quarterback whisper, he's have a guy who you know, wasn't all that great.
But he knows what he's talking about, and I think Bruce Arians and Byron Leftwich might have just saved James's career.
But even though both teams been really good, you see the air raid from the from the the Bucks.
I mean, what are getting, uh, their average passing yards? A game is looking like Hold out Lucy.
Actually, I can't even see what their average passing yards a game is.
Ah, but they're averaging the object of 25 yards a game, and most of that's coming.
Most of that is coming through the air.
Yeah, he's coming through the air, and it's because of Chris got one.
You haven't really seen all that much of Mike Evans doing anything.
My Evans obviously, is the top.
You can call him a top five receiver in the game right now, but he really hasn't done all that much.
I mean, Mike Evans, usually over the past couple years, including the first game we played, Mike Evans gets he gets, he gets, he gets boxed by James Bradberry.
James Bradburn puts his man in the Snuggie, puts him in a paper bag, and he does not find any kind of yardage.
If there was a dozen article I read earlier, I think either PFF or or someone else, they have both James Bradberry and Dante Jackson as two of the top 20 corners in the league.
I think Dante was 15 and James Bradbury was 19 which is really interesting because Dante's only played in three games.
He missed the last two, but when he was in, you look pretty good.
He got two picks in the I believe that with the Cardinals game.
Yeah, that's game.
Get Skylar where it kind of looked bad for the first time this year.
Um, started college aren't running.
So I got a little skittish back there and Dante just picked him off twice.
And James Bradbury's allowed very little yard so far this year is me kind of beating, really lock of these dudes up.
For the most part, I'm not.
I'd be lying if I said I was very surprised, but I am kind of surprised to see to see Ah, both two guys to two corners in the our team, both in the top 20 for cornerbacks, ranked by a pretty reputable source.
It was it a pff or it was or was someone else.
Every other publication I find a little bit later might find it right now actually, talk about it here in a second.
But going off that, I mean having a having a defense, having to really good corners in the league along with one of the best.
I mean, come on now.
One of the best defensive fronts in the league.
I don't think we're still tied for first for sex right now.
We had 18 through four weeks, really got to last week, and I'm sure that patriots still higher than us right now.
Um, but But I mean, we were still easily, easily one of the most disruptive fronts in the league.
And that goes, the audience goes out saying, Honestly, I mean, where we really are.
You see Brian Burns, Joe McCoy, Even without take a short you're seeing the Panthers put in a lot of work on the front end because we have a lot of dues back there.
You got Luke. You at shack? Easily.
The top two linebacker, The top two, uh, linebacker duos in the game.
I'm not gonna say that both the top two like number wanted to. Absolutely.
But they as a duo on one team.
Come on, now, you know you know what it is? It they're both very, very high on the list of players with tackles.
You can't really deny that.
A CZ for sex? Yeah, for sex.
The pages have 25 sex. We have 20.
The Steelers have 19.
Which is kind of surprising because the Steelers defense has been kind of bad this year when I say kind of about me very bad.
So it looks like they generate sex, but they don't really get very many wins because it offers just so bad.
And the defense is on the field for so long so they get sacked, will get tired and get scored on us.
Well, that doesn't matter.
The point is this upcoming game between the Panthers in the Bucks, even though both has been going off and both teams have have guys who are their obvious, obvious premier guys, I think the Bucks It's actually Chris got wind, even though James had been having a really good year.
I think Chris got one.
Is the driving force off that team for the Panthers? I mean, you don't have to say it.
I mean, I don't know how the same who the driving force the Panthers is.
I believe we're going to see.
We can probably get possibly possibly see a repeat of what happened last time.
These teams met a defensive struggle where the stars of the game are kind of neutralized, and it becomes a game of who has more heart, 22 14.
Last time, I think I predicted it was gonna be a high scoring game.
I hope it's not, but I maybe maybe could be.
It really could be.
James is on a tear right now, and Chris McCaffrey has been going off.
But we've been talking about using what Reggie Bottom limit Maura's well, so that could play a little bit into the street. The strategy.
And, uh, that's how we how we go.
I mean, you want to see Chris McCaffrey gives me just as he can.
But at that same token, by the same token, the more rest he gets, you know that the better he might be later on in the game.
And if there is crunch time and we know it doesn't get, he doesn't get tired.
But I mean him being in having a little bit more rest later on will only make him a better player.
I know he's kind of always running backs for a reps.
Kind of guys, guys, you two get volume guys and have a ball, their hand.
They get better with every touch.
But I want to be surprised if with little with a little less production, a little less to d'oh in the game.
Early on, we see we see a Chris McCaffrey who plays a little bit better down the stretch, quite a little bit more burst down the stretch, and that's all.
It takes one quick breast with Chris McCaffrey and he's gone and it said the game's over.
Um, I can see this game being being, ah, really little school in your fear.
But there was that There was some reason I just taught myself this could turn.
This could really turn into a game where both defense is.
Just forget how to play.
This could turn into a game where Chris got one goes off and I think that depends on whether or not, uh, Dante Jackson's there now.
Dante, you didn't play the last two games, but he was a limited participant in the practice, and I think just today he played fully.
But we're not all that.
He's still questionable on the final, the final of injury report.
So we're not exactly sure exactly what his status is.
What is gonna be for Monday? Uh, I think you'll be all right, but we don't know for sure.
Ross Cockerel played well the first time he was out there, but he did get cooked by D.
J H Ark several times, and I don't want to say, like, that's That's very, very, very bad thing because deejay Tark is a really good receiver and we knew this coming out of college.
He's a really good receiver.
Barnum mensch you is that he's even got back up.
He is only two and two, so he has the least me as of the good backup quarterbacks.
Meaning, uh, cow Alan, Teddy Bridgewater Gardner, uh, is the worst record wise, although I would say he probably has the best roster.
I will come here.
What? What? What am I saying when I said You gotta come here and get Michael Thompson.
I don't want any.
Oh yeah, Teddy Bridgewater.
Usually at the best roster to work with? Well, no, we don't have it.
We don't Michael Thomas.
I think I take Chris McAffrey over over over Comm era, but Michael Thomas is easily better than any receiver on our team.
I believe in Curtis Samuel.
I believe in D J.
More and even Greg Olsen when he's healthy and he hasn't so far.
Um, but I don't think I don't think it comes as a surprise to anyone or should be like a shock.
If I were to say that Michael Thomas is a better why receiver, then any receiving that we have on our team right now? Am I? Am I my say anything too crazy.
Anything to blast must right now.
I don't think so.
I don't think so.
Ah, but apart from that, this could this I really can't decide.
I really can't decide our block this game because this game really could go left and become whoever has the ball.
Last winds and a very high scoring affair where both defense is just get burned.
I can see it being I can see it being crazy.
Crazy long runs from from us and I could see it being crystal when just going off.
I don't think we're gonna have to shade the coverage near Mike.
This because Mike Evans, I really don't think he's gonna go off against us.
Not against James Bradberry.
Okay, Howard, I don't know what's happened to him.
What? Only 141 yards this whole season.
Only 11 catches.
I don't know what's happened, O.
I think he had a really good year last year and he was obviously, I think, even two years ago he had a really good year and he was obviously one of the up and coming kind of younger guys on the younger tight end who was given a lot of expectations.
I think people thought that O.
Howard was gonna be one of the better guys coming up, but he hasn't done it yet. So far.
The 1st 5 games of this season will have to see what he's up to right now.
Um, but this is an important game.
This right here could either send us to, ah, the foreign too, or can tie us with the bucks at three.
And three, which would be us tie for second, The Saints at four and one and the Saints play the Jags.
The Jacks could win that game.
The Jags really could win that game.
Uh, I don't know.
I think Lattimore is gonna be on Shark and DV.
Westbrook might run wild on that on that Saints defense.
I would not be surprised if Dede Westbrook goes off that game.
Um, Leonard Fournette the same time of the sex.
I'm not a good defense, but never decent piece for defense.
But Marshall Lattimore was kind of a little bit bag by us last week.
I mean, he did get how many did get 100 yards on this, but it was like it wasn't like a very effective wasn't like a very, uh, a very hurtful 100 yards.
The real damage came through the air limit for net.
Got his and bits and pieces.
Ah, I don't know.
Even if they even the same go for into, I think they'd still be ranked ahead of us.
You know, we're tied.
I think we have what? We have a loss in our division, so that's what that will come from.
But this isn't a must win, but this is as close to a must win as you can get.
Um, at this point, just because just because you don't want to you don't want to lose twice.
You don't get swept by a team in your division.
That's just bad.
I mean, that could That could really hurt you in the long run, knowing that in this season they were 10 and sticks and the and the and the books were 10 and six.
That's the tie breaker.
That's the tie breaker.
And then one of the best on the case.
What if What if we're 10 and six? The books? They're 97 but the Saints or 10 and six and in us in the St split game, we always put our two games right, so I want to want to each other.
The next tiebreaker is the divisional record, and those two losses to the Bucks could prove to be very, very dangerous because we know.
Look, the Falcons should be free wind sissies.
Their defense is How about I wish I hosted the word for garbage and more than two languages, but their garbage, that persona I can I can do a quick google dot Translate that calm, right, Quick to talk about Guess how bad they are and some other languages behind.
Out of time for that.
I got you something here in a minute, but I don't have any faith in the Atlanta anything.
I mean, the official off.
I mean, this is This is the great years.
And the good thing about Matt Ryan, the team might be garbage.
The team might only win four games this year, but you know Matt Ryan will get his stats just so I can I can.
I can imagine that whatever you think about the Panthers losing in our Super Bowl and Cam not jumping on the ball, whatever, even though that catch by Jekyll Country was a catch, but they didn't call it in the very next play with a fumble play.
The Falcons, the Falcons air in a bad situation.
I mean, people were really talking about how they might lose the Arizona Cardinals.
You don't want that.
That's not what you want.
You just just this.
Imagine being Julio Jones and Matt Ryan is seeing that me devante Freeman's garbage now to, uh, they got rid of the wrong running back.
Who was the other running back on their team? It was Amon.
Take Freeman and it Waas.
Who was it? Who was it? I forgot.
I don't think it's a starter.
Another team Right now, I'll bet he's a starter, but, uh, big over to the wrong money back.
And that's a sit.
In fact, it's a Fendi fact.
This may not be a must win, but it's as close to a must win, and you can have Week six and we have a pretty decent schedule.
I mean, we don't have the hardest schedule in the in the league, just looking at our schedule quick.
We have a lot of winnable games, especially coming up kind of soon after his Bucks game.
Hopefully, you'll win this game.
We were gonna wait it, but there's a bye week and coming out by.
We have a Niners now.
If the Niners lose this next game.
I think they against the Rams.
I think it's acceptable to losing more games in a row.
There are undefeated right now, but I think the Niners, I think, will be the Niners.
You stop George Kittel and you start well, Really? Really.
You stop that run.
If you can stop there, there three running backs, then the love Jimmy G is not the focus point of that offense is not George Kittle.
It's those three running backs.
Brita Mostert, and I forgot the other news name.
But, uh, those are the three running backs are the biggest focus point focal point for the Niners.
They have a good defense, obviously.
But, er is those running backs started running back? You can stop the whole offense.
The Titans who are decent.
Uh, yeah, the Packers And we've seen we've seen Green Bay and wishing Aaron Rodgers in his defense.
I'm not all that sure about them.
By this point, we've mean Alaska bleeder who've seen Aaron Rodgers get hurt and not 100%.
This is gonna be the middle of November.
I don't wish pain or I don't know.
I don't wish injury.
on any player, whether it's on the Panthers or any other team.
But ducking from his history, he's a little bit injury prone.
Lately, I could see us winning that game, even though it will be at Lambeau in November.
It should be called by them.
That is the Falcons.
That should be a win.
Then it's the Saints, and probably one of probably one of the earlier games that that Drew Brees comes back from that thumb injury.
He might be back.
You probably will, but it'll be.
It'll only be maybe one or two games in with with recovered from that dumb injury, So we'll see how that goes.
Then we have the Redskins, which I mean, if we don't win the Redskins game, you made what it's lose out.
You made what is going on lose out because you can't be the Redskins at home that you get you get.
You don't deserve to go to the playoffs.
I don't care if you're 15 and one and you're only loss is to the Redskins loose the Redskins.
You near your really may as well pack the whole season in this.
That that was again uh, in Atlanta.
Should be a dub there.
She also be a test.
Holtz look pretty good.
I won't lie. That's three days before Christmas.
They do look really good.
Then it's the Saints for last game, and I love that.
We have two years back to back with last game.
Saints Week 17 Saints Games are easily, easily, my favorite, easily my favorite.
Hopefully, this year it means something I want to be.
I want us to be tied.
I want us to both be 11 and five.
No, I guess 11 and four at this point, and this game decides who wins division and I want to be Drew Brees.
I want to be Cam Newton.
I think my next dream tomorrow.
I might talk about Cam like the, uh, the time frame for Cam's injury recovery.
What we're looking at there when he could come back when he could come back at the earliest and when he shouldn't come back, I have an idea of what game he should actually come back for, and and and how it should be done because right now how Alan is not a better coordination camp, but he's a pretty good game manager and by game manager.
I mean, he gets the snap and he looked at Chris McCaffrey and he says, You want you want to take over this game for you? I'm a here here and that's the game plan.
It's It's It's Matt Pair to center.
Give the ball to call our own quarterback.
And Collins says, Great Kirsten.
Okay, All right, you you just go ahead and go ahead and do to go do Christian.
I'm right here, Christian.
If you need me, I'll be back in the back.
Phil, are you going to run for 45 yards now? Christian, please run for rubber for 45 yards.
Do not make me hold this ball in the backfield and maybe get sad. Christian.
I don't want that to happen.
Christian, Can you please just give me a touchdown? Christian, I'm not alive, though.
I'm not too bad.
Not you, madam to down on Uncle Alan.
So far, apart from the fumbles, he's not bad.
It doesn't shrink late in games, Even when it's a one possession game, He does pretty well.
He's he's finishing games off course.
I like what I'm seeing from common. Allen.
He is the perfect game, managing a backup quarterback who can keep the ship afloat while your starters like rehabbing.
Not quite the level of backup that Teddy Bridgewater is.
And I think he's better than garments.
You, well, governments.
You, uh, he's good.
I can't I don't know.
And I don't want more Him or Gardner, Uh, not gonna lie to you, but that doesn't really matter, because we have our Allen and he's working really well force.
And if they don't worry, if it ain't broke, don't fix it until can comes back.
That's not feel about it, man.
So, doctor, today, I think tomorrow I will talk about Cam.
What games are what cause guns drawn.
Tomorrow I might talk about college games as well, but I will talk about camp and is Ah, it's times in this time frame coming back.
And then Sunday I don't like about like, seven o'clock eight o'clock to watch an NFL football game.
I mean, it feels like college waking up that at the butt crack of dawn.
Toto, watch your team get smashed.
Or at least that was my experience.
I mean, I want to, you know, see Charlotte and huh? In the early days, we want it now.
Teams winning now.
But in the early days we were you couldn't get past half time score being like 3 to 58.
And that was not me being nice.
It was probably in the sixties, half the time.
By the second quarter, it was that it was that.
Anyway, Man side out for you.
I'll be back on tomorrow.
Uh, if you haven't already subscribed to that YouTube channel, it's youtube dot com slash Eltron.
That's in my bio on the page on my profile page here.
There's no link, but you could get a copy and paste it, really just going to YouTube and type and kill on the Panthers.
You'll see my channel up there on the front page, so either way, you want to do it.
Same name is this.
I'm out of here and I'll see you tomorrow
