the following takes place between 8 a.
Good morning, everybody.
Welcome back to full press coverage.
I am your host, Ian Glendon, and I am so happy to be back on the air after a week off.
And as always, I have to welcome in my co host.
He is Mr Rhode Island.
He stands about five foot nine weighing £175.
And I'm just guessing because I have no idea what his actual dimensions are.
Mike Debate Mike, how we doing today? Uh, actually, that was pretty and Oh, good.
That was actually pretty accurate.
So, uh, so I thank you for that, but, uh, no.
All kidding aside, it's great to be back a week off.
Couple of unexpected days off.
We appreciate our listeners.
We appreciate you guys being patient with us, but we're back to bring it.
And you got three days left in the week, and you know, Ian and I will definitely do that.
All I can say is about being back on the air.
What? That's right. Finally.
No, I Ah, obviously, Thanksgiving was last week and We had a couple scheduled days off, and then a couple of unscheduled days off.
So, you know, it made sense to pick it up right where we left off last week on a Wednesday.
So we had a nice full week off recharge, refreshed, ready to go.
A lot of things to talk about.
Um, actually, too many things, to be honest, something we might have to do a six hour show today.
But unfortunately, we we do have other things to do.
But again, if you're listening welcome back.
We're happy to have you.
That's right. I had to check my calendar a few times.
Um, it is December the fourth.
It's still almost screwed that up.
And it's sitting here right in front of me.
Wednesday, December 4 2019.
And, um, I mean, we're gonna I mean, we're gonna focus 100% on the NFL because, um, Mondays is our usual general reaction day. Tuesday.
We reacted Monday Night football, but since we weren't on the air Monday or Tuesday or Friday, for that matter because we had the Thursday night game, we have a lot of football to talk about.
So, Yeah, we Absolutely, truly.
I mean, there's no question about it.
The NFL action packed a lot happening.
A lot of movement up and down the power rankings.
A little bit up and down in a playoff seeding, believe it or not, was a one.
Seed is now a five, and it's absolutely amazing to me how things can change in the blink of an eye.
So, yeah, let's just let's get to it, my friend.
A lot to talk about.
Let's get nuts here.
Okay, So All right, let's get so some a little little house sleeping.
Housekeeping Here, uh, you know, in terms of NFL news and notes Gardner, Menchu has ah regained the reins of the starting quarterback position in Jacksonville.
Anyone who's watching Sunday know that he came in relief of fools who, uh, look his Jaguar.
If this is it for a Jaguar starting career.
After signing a four year, $80 million contract in the offseason, um, he accounts for four losses owned for, uh, three touchdowns, two interceptions, very lackluster.
It's unfortunate how obviously he got injured after you know his first touchdown pass in the first game.
He broke his arm, fractured his clavicle or broke his clavicle.
Something like that.
And obviously, he missed a chunk of time in the middle of season.
But in that time, gardener Menchu for 4 14 touchdowns for interceptions, nearly 2500 yards.
So, um, once again it looks like 1/6 round quarterback has unseated a nearly $100 million franchise quarterback.
Thoughts on that, well, surprising a little bit when it comes to foals.
I really thought that he was a very good fit for what the Jaguars wanted to do offensively, and I expected them to be a lot better than she earned a Nick Foles.
Obviously, injuries play into that.
You can't deny that.
But maybe it just wasn't the fit that everybody thought it was.
Either that or maybe fulls isn't quite the quarterback that we thought he was.
So there's a lot going on there in Jacksonville.
I do think they made the right call in going there.
They can develop him.
They can see him making strides each and every start and coming out Thio to be able to eventually be the starting quarterback full time in that team.
I know he's got that the other title right now.
I know they've officially given it to him, but I think now, knowing that next year they're gonna be hitching their wagon a gardener Minshew I think that's gonna be able to make him a little bit better.
And he could work on being the starting quarterback of this team.
So all in all, I think a good move for Jacksonville.
Obviously, the team's not going anywhere this year, but it's a I think of the move that probably they wanted to make.
They had to make, and we'll see what Ah, what happens to, ah folds now that that's gonna be a very interesting off season in Jacksonville, cause that's a freshly signed, a big contract and not a lot of teams are gonna want to take on.
Yeah, and that's the thing, I guess I'll ask you.
I mean, what what team would take him? Because, really, I mean, you get the Jaguars, you can't just cut him because I I don't have the the actual the structure in front of me.
But I think they can't really get out from under this contract until, like 2021 at the
