It's going, man.
Sunday morning mitts and pancakes this morning.
Hop in the shower, ready for some NFL talk, rich some injury talk breakfast in hip hop talk. Maybe we'll see.
We'll see Jay Jay Z.
Oh, of course you did. Of course you did.
He with the rest is history.
The that tweet has, like, 600 votes on it at this point or something like something crazy.
Like people are nuts about their hip hop like that a lot of people were responding to with, like, their own.
Most of the ones that people talk about our life there mentioned most, is to park and nods, which I get that a little bit.
But then you got people saying, like, Drake and and like somebody who I mean cross one. It's fine.
I'm you know what to say. And I say that, right. Cross one Chris one.
Yeah, I don't know, but hey, people learn to a man, all right? Exactly.
Anything that has to do anything has to do with forking over a little cash or something Not happen.
Oh, yeah, yeah, definitely.
That's definitely that's definitely right.
I absolutely won't understand, man.
So it depends on how many people were. Nearly.
It depends on if you do one or two week playoff format.
So, generally speaking, I think the default on the ESPN app. It's four teams.
You have semi finals and finals.
So you just go week, 15 weeks.
One week you could go down the rabbit hole of like, customizing it, making how you want, adding teams, taking teams, way buys and stuff like that.
But if it's if it's just two weeks, it's more than likely four teams in the playoffs.
And you do Ah, 15 16 semi final final week with just one week playoffs.
Yeah, that's brutal, man.
So my my my main lead, my money lead, Whatever you wanna call it.
We started this year.
We started instead of so we expanded to six teams.
And instead of doing one week, we just used one playoff start previous weeks score.
Plus, you're weak scores.
Take away some of that randomness a little bit that way.
You're not like you said.
It's not like all or nothing basically was just a one week matchup, huh? You go ahead, man.
What do you think? Who that was gonna happen, man.
I talked about that The week 12 preview, My injury previous that t y was not ready to come back.
And then he just does it again.
I don't think it's gonna be active.
Um, so I guess I don't know if that I could sort agree with what you're saying.
I think this is when it's cold.
Man is tough to throat throw the ball around.
Um, you know, But then you turn around.
You look at that.
The saints play the colts, and you sort of, I don't know, you scratch your head there because saints defense isn't necessarily, you know, immovable or anything like that.
But, man, that's a tough spot to be in for your flex.
Anthony Miller, sack Pascal.
Um, yeah, I think I agree with you.
That's what one man was just saying.
The weather down there is what we're worried about.
I don't know if you can see, but it's like coming down in Kansas City too.
Here, take another live shot again.
My parking lot, huh? I think that when you consider like, uh, when you consider Ryan tan holders to Patrick moves, you have to get a couple things like a the talent at the end of day batch from Holmes is more talented.
And then be I'm going to steal a stat that I heard from Jeff Ratcliffe on his podcast.
The, uh what is it? What? I don't even remember what any of this podcast is called, Um, but he said that essentially over that since Ryan Tannehill has taken over, he's only averaging about one red zone throw per game.
And this if you correct that, statistically you successful consistently successful quarterbacks, they have about two and 1/2.
And so he says that it's even though it's impossible to predict regression is coming at some point.
Just know that if you are gonna go Tannehill over the homes that regressions gonna hit him like even if it's in Week five.
You know next year or if it's today, regressions coming for 10 Hail At some point, something considered.
You hope you hope that the targets Anthony Miller has been getting If you go with Anthony Miller, our will make up for maybe the lack of, like yards and touchdowns.
Well, I gotta go.
Godwin and Parker, man, Right, right, right.
I I will say that he's at an element of risk this week.
Uh, for a re concussion.
It doesn't always happen, but you have seen it already with Brandon cooks.
Certainly, Shepherd, Um, there are a few other guys this year that they've got one and they got another, so I'm not saying it will happen, but he is for this week, specifically a little more of it of an elevated risk.
But, I mean, you're the playoffs at this point, man.
Your risk it for the biscuit now.
So I That wouldn't be something that holds me back personally.
That's a That's a rat's realistic man.
That's definitely realistic.
Can't argue there.
Hopefully, we prepared.
You're better than that.
Miami Cain's productions move The only sorry.
The only thing about Winston is the thumb we never So we always worry about when we never worry about Brian Griffin.
All year, we haven't worried about Ryan Griffin replacing James Winston.
Um, this week, however, and then we see the five picks the five picks five touchdowns, and you're happy.
Whatever doesn't matter.
But this this week, specifically with that fracture that he's got his hand, it's more than likely that his fine motor control is gonna be impaired.
And where they playing Tampa plays? Oh, that's right.
It's in the dome. That's right. That's right.
Okay, so it won't matter.
The cold won't matter.
But that thumb is at risk, for he doesn't even have to get hit in the hand like he can follow through.
Hit another player's helmet, his own offensive lineman helmet, and that's gonna send a zinger all the way up.
It's gonna potentially cost some neural tension is what it's called, and it's gonna it's gonna knock out the rest of the game.
We're going to see Ryan Griffin finish just so just know, sort of similar with, like, Dante Parker and the other injuries we talked about just No, that's a risk with, um, with James this week, more so than any other week is that he could be pulled because of the pain because he reactivates because it is a fracture of the day.
Hey, Cat's nuts is nuts.
That's what I'm saying.
That was like the dude.
Ordered with Winston fat from, You know.
Maybe Mmm mmm mmm.
A Yeah, Yeah, he's the risk.
He's definitely a risk coming off that injury.
Uh, no, he's an active.
He's an activity is probably not coming back next week.
Man, you guys were in some spots down there.
She's That's a brutal Yeah.
Yeah, that's brutal.
Plus, it's Eli Manning, huh? I think a man Dol is safe.
Yeah, I think that model is the safest one.
Yeah, I don't know how you're starting Sterling Shepherd, to be honest with you.
Um and I don't know how you're not start.
I know how it sounds, but I know how you're I don't know how you're not starting.
The dude is just He's so first of all, he's got this hip injury, this groin injury, right? So in week two, he came on injury report with the hit.
You saw that after thereby I think is week seven or eight or something.
It switched to a growing and that's because they had the Met staff had a time to have timeto do an actual thorough evaluation.
See what was going on.
They brought him into the P T room.
There's like, Hey, what's you know? Tell me what's bothering you.
they did some steps, um, tests.
And they declared that it was, ah, growing issue.
Which when it's a growing issue, you think sports hernia sports journey is really, really broad term.
It really just means like muscle.
That attach is from your leg to your pelvis, your abs to your pelvis.
Super super broad term.
But essentially, what it means is that, um, it's really difficult to run.
I mean, bottom line for a receiver.
It's the same injury to Sean Jackson had the same injury Calvin Ridley has.
So the fact that he's been dealing with is openly like I wouldn't be surprised if he has surgery in the offseason, first of all.
So, honestly, at this point, I know it sounds insane.
But if you're in the playoffs and it's you're not here because of Odell, so I wouldn't be I wouldn't shy away from starting Keenan Allen and Terry Slaten.
Long story short. Sorry.
I went to his hips, man.
All his arm strength goes to his hips.
Huh? To catch that? You're all washed up.
It depends to me anyway, what you need if you're sitting there and you're like in a two week, maybe a two week match up on your way down.
I mean, I think you have to throw out, uh, Perrine men, at least and then maybe Boyd to even it out.
But even then, Boyd Boyd's got a tough matchup this week.
Um God, those were terrible options, man.
He might shut him down for for a goose egg, maybe.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, right.
That's a tough man.
That's a the slug.
Flex questions are tough.
You're deciding between some dust.
Mike Evans, Deejay char Calvin Ridley owners.
Oh, Higby has been bawling out.
I think that Jared Cook is so Jared could definitely is still at a higher risk for re concussion, just like the Monte Parker is.
So if you're in a spot where you're like you need pointing and guaranteed points and you don't necessarily need upside anything like that, I'd probably go. You'd be here.
Um, I think that the Cowboys defense is as talented as they are.
They have no leadership.
They don't know what's going on.
They're missing tackles or not, they don't high five.
Their coaches clapping on the sideline form constantly the whole game.
All 4/4 clapping, clapping.
So I think, Yeah, I think the rand's coming, but coming into form.
And we're starting to see the old the old Rams 18 Ram.
So I think he'd be here for me anyway.
There's crazy, mofo.
Yeah, Yeah, I think I gotta go.
Hooper here if it's cooked.
Jared Cook verses.
Awesome. Hooper, I'm probably on Hooper.
Sorry, SportsCastr fans, I just muted myself on the other place.
But if you have questions, let me know.
We need three Hail Diamante.
I don't think you go cop here.
Played, like, 34% of snaps last week.
And I think that he played like 34% is absolutely before I I think that the lack of production from Cooper cuff is strictly from his lack of snaps.
For whatever reason, they figure something out.
Uh, McVeigh saw something, and they're playing a lot of, like, a lot of 12 personnel, and so they've got two tight ends on field, um, cups.
Just not seeing the field.
And he's got a pretty sure he's got, like, the same amount of of uh, snaps is Brandin cooks, which we've seen Brandon Cook.
So I mean, if you're not on the field, you can't get opportunity.
So I think I'm going.
Ah, I'm going Hill devante in and Julio here.
Huh? By the way, guys, if you have any of the any of the commenters, have you have injury questions? Hit me up.
This one, that's that's my expertise, is my true expertise.
I got us a little bit of fantasy chops, but if you have injury questions, let me know, huh? Yeah, exactly, Man, huh? It's take your pick.
In the other direction, though, Brady Ryan or golf in the preseason would have been like home.
Man, you can't make the wrong option.
You can't make the wrong choice, and now it's like you could definitely make the wrong choice here.
Can you do none of those? That's what that's what you're saying.
You can. You do none of those guys.
Road golf is really bad.
You know what Zach read? Well, if you have a big between Tom Brady, Matt Ryan and Jared Goff, let's go, Tom Brady.
Let's just go to go.
Let's default, Let's just go.
And that you know? Yeah.
Just default to the goat, I guess.
Stefan Digs O B J Take one, man.
I think you gotta do to me anyway.
You got a default to match up and you gotta go, B j.
Especially because we like what we talked about the weather in Chicago already.
Um, I think you just I think you go B j Ah, man, the same.
The thing about the thing about most here is that you have any.
I mean, this could be a map Brita game.
You know, um, it could turn it.
It could turn into a It could turn into Jeff Wilson Russian ball three times for four touchdowns.
Like you still use. Don't know.
With 40 Niners like that's it's a volatile situation.
I'd probably go. Singletary No.
Yeah, that's that's bad situation being I don't hate it.
O'Dell or a p Ah.
Uh, a few will get we'll get guaranteed work.
But you gotta remember this was I think this was a game last year where he carried the ball.
I think like 12 times and he had, like, 100 and something like seven or eight yards or something.
but he had that 96 yard long run and didn't have anything else other than that, um, he's always capable of that, obviously.
But I guess, Yeah, I think if I think if you think it's standard or like even happy PR, you probably go Peterson here.
I don't disagree.
So let me, if you don't mind me interrupting here, I'm gonna get ahead of this one because I'm gonna get a lot of Twitter Twitter questions about it.
So Jay Glazer reports that the Chiefs are quote nervous about Patrick home suffering further damage to his injured throwing end.
Injury was paying on the outside of the hand, and it was black and blue on both sides.
Glaser reports that Holmes was struggling to grip the ball until Thursday, but was slinging it on Friday.
He's not gonna re injure it.
He's not gonna cause further damage like that's not really a thing.
Unless you have a fracture injury.
When you when you think re aggravate, it just means more pain.
So considering that it's on the outside of his hand, the older side he's got bruising on it.
Some quarterbacks don't even use their pinkie to throw the ball, so don't worry about it.
I just want to get ahead of that one, Parker for me.
