he is like a bangle kind of breakdown.
You know, everything that's happened with him and what that maybe should have done it.
Maybe I plan on doing in the future with, you know, is impending free agent coming up.
So let's start there.
But before we get off to that, all right, coming to you as a part of Under Wraps Sports Network a lot of great content going on unwrapped Sports Network were really starting to grow as a network, thanks to the guys that started it.

Backslash on absolute Just lots of great content over there really appreciate everyone who has worked hard to get us where we need to be and put us in the right place and give us this platform.
So I really appreciate it when they run under at sports network and also have a new episode coming.
I believe at the beginning of next week the fourth Man pod, which is a big three podcasts, and we're currently going through the longest off season in professional sports, so we'll drop a new episode.
We had a really cool guest on this week and make sure you guys check that out if possible.
If we found on pretty much any listening platform so appreciated. One support.
Um, yeah, start with a J.
So it came out today that after in the first time this season, making his debut after the angle injury he suffered in the beginning stages of the season, I believe in OT ace.
Maybe early July, right before the preseason, he was finally gonna make his debut, and it came out today and said he's not going to play.
There was some swelling and then later reported maybe 30 minutes to an hour later, that he's out indefinitely, meaning he has suffered a setback and practice this past week.
His ankle is clearly not where he had hoped to be clearly because he thought you wouldn't come back 4 to 6 week or at least some people did.
Men thought He's gonna play this week and looks like he might not be playing.
But usually at all this year, first of anyone's tune into this, let me know your fault.
Time what you think about a J. Green thing.
Are you frustrated with him? Especially in fancy? Probably a lot of people picked him in the back half team has just been terrible.
He's reiterated that he would like to stay with team and wants to be loyal.
His whole career would be open to signing an extension there, however, So we're situation of the Bangles.
I don't know what they want to do. It A. J.
Green is now 31 you know.
He has played 21 of the last 56 game, well, town of injury history.
I wouldn't say that he's necessarily injury problem, but definitely ever.
It may be over the past.
He is, he's he's real, struggled to stay on the field and however we know how productive a player he is, I think the record for him.
Without him it's 5 21 and the record with him is like five and four, you know, in the past, you in the past whatever games he's played.
So for the past games he's been with him and without him, so we know how productive he can be When he's on the field, we know how much of a presence you can be.
And he seems confident to play.
And those his words.
So what? The weather, the Bangles offer an extension or not? It looks like that, you know, at some point a degree is gonna get what he's worth, whether it be in Cincinnati again or another team, because it's a really interesting situation of the Bangles.
I want to start there because he is an impending free agent coming off a big deal for years, 60 million deal.
But the guy obviously wants to be paid as a top dollar receiver even as he ages.
Like I've been saying, continue to say that he is a really good receiver and he makes his presence zone topped, interfere in this league when he's healthy and especially, you know, coming maybe a year.
I mean, I still kind of think he's in his prime, but I love it how he really is.
But It's weird for the Bangles.
I mean, they, you know, and they could really time to an extension at any point that they want to.
But it's weird, like at this point, wouldn't you feel like you should have made your decision? I mean, you're going to the backup quarterback now, a guy you draft in the fourth round and Ryan Finley this week.
You're benching your guys.
He's been your guy for the past nine years or so in Andy Dalton, maybe eight years.
And you put those like you're kind of, you know, you have a new coach who has yet to get a win.
It kind of looks like you're trying to rebuild and you don't know which way how you thought Maybe you could be like this.
So it's weird that, you know, now they bench Andy Dalton, the guy.
Maybe they could have traded, And I guess obviously they don't know about Ryan Finley It, but at least for a J.
Green about some value out of him, because now he could potentially leave, you know, unless I smacked the franchise tag on on which, you know, Are you gonna do for a guy who's been injured A pretty much the whole year and can't play is coming back from injury history.
So just I thought it was weird that they didn't trade him.
Maybe get most value that they can out of him because I think from this point of value just diminishes.
Um, you know, whether you signed a contract is gonna be too big for what other people Probably we're hoping to get him for if the bangle Sinem And if they don't, it's like he just walks away for free.
So now you know, I'm sure they were expecting him to play the sleep.
But now with the injury, you have to wonder that they're not regretting making a move.
Maybe at the deadline.
I don't know what type of offers there again, but I have to believe that the Saints were given trying to give up something for him.
The Eagles were trying to give up some form, and we're really were you know, I don't know what the Bengals were hoping for.
Move out of him so that he could end up walk away, especially with the way that these contract situation can go now.
It could be you know a similar situation of Julio Jones.
He's been involved in the past and you know disagreements.
But it's a team that he wants to be with.
You want to be the Falcons.
It's cold career, and so you have to wonder.
Green gives him a little bit, you know, the owners a little, a little bit of leeway with you know, how they're going about this.
And, you know, they say the green doesn't expect it, but it's looking more like a possibility.
Okay, I don't really see the point unless at this point he's just hoping the audition for routines moving forward and get and to get a nice contract.
You know, he really what he stated.
He really doesn't care about the money, but I'm sure he like he was saying.
He also knows its worth.
He's not gonna settle for less, you know, Then that makes him feel worthy enough for what he believes he's worse.
So, yeah, I guess I was gonna preview the game, but the game has already started, so we'll just talk about it before it gets too far under way.
Philip Rivers is gonna start the game.
They're coming off a couple of big time wins, obviously one against the Packers last week and the week before they pulled out of this fleet went after the benefits of field goal, 17 16.
So to game winners, winning streak potentially should have been maybe a three or four game winning streak.
And even, I mean, you should've cut would've.
But when they played the Steelers, they were playing their third string quarterback When they're playing the Titans there on the goal.
I'm Melvin Gordon.
Fumble was really struggling and whoa, what if it isn't that I am? You know? Melvin Gordon struggled.
Lastly, it looks like both last week cup touchdowns ever had still had 12 carries, So Gordon seems like he started to ramp up and get back to hopefully the running back.
But he is, um, you know, even on this first play that had not been Gordon in the backfield, Austin ever in the salon ever goes out for a pass and catch the ball.
So hopefully those guys, it looks like those guys would continue to share the field.
As for the Raiders, you know that they were They were favored in last week's game against the lines.
I was a little bit surprised by that, and they ended up band up.
You know, pulling off the wind is not something I would expect that the line's gonna be a lot better.
Have been a lot better offensively and defensively.
But the Raiders have kind of been a mixed bag this year.
They pulled out some some good winds and then lost some tough ones as well.
So you know, it's kind of hard predicting there are formed four.
They are second and the A F C West.
I don't think they're competing, you know, with genre.
And despite, you know, the Aussies and the issues that had after getting Antonio Brown, they've moved on.
They've had some issues defensively, including the Vontae perfect issue when he was suspended for the whole year.
Er just of a huge sack, by the way.
So this is really interesting, I think is a big game for both teams.
The teams were kind of coming off, uh, coming off a little bit of a high with a good wind and I think those teams want to keep that rolling, especially for the charges were a little surprised with how they, uh, other players amounted to them.
But we'll be going on a bye week this upcoming week.
So you know, it's really is really gonna be big if they can win a three games going back into the bye week.
So we'll see what Philip Rivers and Oakland Raiders conduce.
I think you know, I haven't seen a lot of the Raiders games this year.
You know, I've seen mostly what they've been better than most games.
Um, Derek are too bad, especially with, oh.
