I am mascara, USAID and this is my coast at Sam.
Daring underscored USN.
We both work for our unwrapped A sports network.
And right now we're just gonna discuss Breast of the NFC East.
We are going to be talking about that.
The New York Giants and the new and improved Washington football team.
A new team name for the Washington Redskins is the Washington football team.
So we're going to start things off with the New York Giants.
I I start off with you, Sam.
What are your thoughts on the New York Giants offseason? They had an interesting one.
I mean, dig Gettleman.
We all know he's one of the worst G m's in the NFL.
Um, so he actually approached the strap quite well.
I mean, he mean to me if you had the fourth pick, there's so many things that they could have done with that pick.
I mean, a lot of people wanted Isaiah Simmons, but they needed they needed to protect the quarterback they drafted.
Two linemen are three linemen.
I'm sorry They dropped the two tackles and one guard.
So Andrew Thomas, um, it's weird because he was fluctuating, his his draft stock fluctuated.
Like so much like I mean, he he started out being like a top 10 pick.
And then he started following just because other tackles started shining my church.
That worst Mukai, Becca and Jesuit Wills.
And then, the day before the draft, he his draft.
I went right back where it waas, so I mean, their draft was one surprisingly well for a front office like that lead, Do you think? Yeah, I person agree with you as well.
I was kind of on the fans like I kind of figured either the Giants were going to go after an offensive lineman or Isaiah.
I feel like they couldn't go wrong.
Either way, you look at the Giants, they d they need to improve on their defense and they would have looked like a sentence.
But they also need to improve their line to help Daniel Jones, and that's what they did with Andrew Thomas.
I thought they were going to get Isaiah works the tackle from Yeah, Tristan words, but But I wasn't disappointed in this election and I think it's definitely a good green down, especially from the draft two years ago when the Giants took Daniel Jones with six pick.
I was very surprised that happened, but I definitely like they bounced back with Andrew Thomas Pink.
I also like the other, picks up the innate In the third around.
They draft the offensive tackle that appear out of Yukon and then the Organ guard in the fifth round.
Shame, Shame, Lamu.
I definitely believe all of the Guard picks are going to make a big impact.
And if there's one Garden Chapel I would be concerned with, the Giant is it would be Nate Nate.
Solder like That's not forgive.
The Giants paid Nate Solder a couple years ago, made him one of the highest paid tackles in the NFL, and he's kind of flop so far, like he hasn't been the same same kind of guard tackle.
He wasn't leading to England.
So with this draft and the amount of guys that day that they selected on the line like he could be on the fringe on making sure that he can, that he has to perform well, don't forget about their second round pick.
Uh, Xavier McKinney.
I think you missed two games because he played a little bit of nickel corner throughout his her throat his last year in Alabama.
I mean, so that's a guy that can be played in multiple areas around that secondary.
So, like versatility is key for that secondary and zero.
McKinney was a little bit surprised he fell out of the first round as well, so that, to me, is definitely one of their biggest steals of the giraffe.
They were able to land them where they got him.
That's, uh, the Alabama safety exhibit McKinney.
Definitely a huge selection for for the New York Giants.
Especially when when when you're a team like the New York Giants at any pick helps, like examine your McKinney.
If he does well, like if he can play like a first round talent that he should have been and they were able to get him in the second round, it will be a huge win from especially being paired up alongside with another safety and Jabrill peppers when we outside.
Hopefully, hopefully, like either one of those two guys could be kind of like what land in college was.
So the Giants before he signed, signed his big deal with, but I believe it was the Redskins.
It's getting so I really liked your real peppers.
Yeah, coming out of Michigan, the Browns picked, um later in the draft.
I think they had, like, two or three first round picks here.
They picked him and they ended up trading him to the Giants.
Um, first, every day.
Yeah, he's definitely going to be one of their hybrid guys.
He's got the height and he's got the size and the body for him for it.
And we've seen it happen before, especially when used in college.
Like that mission.
You didn't? Yeah.
So good traffics thereby by the New York Giants.
Another pickup they also made was in the sixth round.
They they picked up the Penn State linebacker Cam Brown.
Do you believe he'll make any any impact at all on the job? That's this season? Um, no.
I think that's a little bit more of a depth move because they did bring in Leonard Williams, which I could come about to me.
I think that was one of their biggest splashes they made in the off season.
In regards to free agents because that defense needs a lot of work, let along the entire team, obviously with the defense to mean it's more work than their offense.
So I think that was a little bit more depth food because they did bringing Leonard Williams, who I think will make a pretty good impact with, um Well, yeah, that definitely will make a big impact that that is for sure.
On Let's and let's move on the near giant Some of their free agent signings they were.
They were very, very active in the free agent market of one of them being they signed X scream, a Packer, Blake Martinez.
I believe that was a It was a three year, $30 million.
3 year, $1,000,000 time deal.
And then they also brought in another former Packer Tyler fact Well, as well, uh, your thoughts kind on those signings by by the Giants.
I don't recall what he wanted.
I think I think Blake Martinez wanted 10 to $12 million a year.
I think it was 10 plus a year with the Packers.
I mean, history has shown with the Packers drafted, they were.
They don't draft linebackers in the first ride.
It's It's been a while since they drafted a linebacker in the first round.
That's made a significant impact, and I know a lot of people will say that.
Blake, Martina Air like that? What Blake Martinez struggle.
That was in coverage, which is obviously true, and it is hard to do the head of times, but I would have given Blake Martinez half of what he wanted.
I mean, I I don't really think that's a huge loss, but the inside linebacker like we discussed before in Green Bay, Um, that's that's position's wide open, but his impact with the Giants.
You have Leonard Williams.
You have Kyler Fackrell, and then you know you.
Now you'll have late works.
So the Camp Brown brings in depth and they now have.
They're hopeful. Linebacker corps.
Yeah, hopefully, Hopefully, it does well for the New York Giants, and I also agree with you as well what Blake Martinez went when he was with the Packers.
You just kind of like a tackle guy, like Only did was his stack of tackles, which is good.
The that's is only one part of the linebacker game.
Like when you're a linebacker, like you gotta be able to make attacker tackles and you gotta be great.
And coverage and Blake Martinez seem toe only be good at just making tackles when the plane was already gaining, like five or six yards.
So if he can improve in coverage with the New York Giants that they got themselves a special linebacker.
But if he doesn't, then it's gonna be a waste of, Ah, 30 $30 million.
And the one something that I like is I like how they brought in Kyler Fackrell All I remember the one season that he had with Green Bay of Lee, 2018.
You have, like, 10 sacks.
It kind of looks like a one year wonder, but I think he's going to get more a little more playing time went the Giant, and hopefully he could.
You could revert back to that 2018 for because if he could get like a eight or nine sacks and it's good, definitely gonna be a good signing there, especially Clinton being a one year, one year type of deal.
Yeah, I mean, like you said, like he had what he had 10 sacks two years ago.
I mean the fact that he's going into a situation on the defense where there's so many unproven.
There's so much unproven talent.
So he very well could make quite a bit of an impact, that is for sure.
Other other free agent signings that the Giants made were a Cameron Fleming offensive tackle, former cowboy and then the terrorists.
Yes, they also did sign Dion Lewis, who I think is gonna make a good impact, especially being a good backup for sake. One.
And then they also signed a former Carolina Panthers quarterback, J.
Bradbury, for three years, $45 million with 32 million guaranteed.
We're looking out of out of those three or four free agent list things that I just need.
Who do you believe will make an impact the most of the Giants and why? I mean, that's secondary.
That secondary looks atrocious right now, and I see Cam and Fleming as a guy that's going to step up.
What do you think? Uh, in my opinion, one of one of the main free agent signings that whole hopefully will will improve it.
It's gonna addition one, but I gotta want t.
What what Dion Dion Lewis could do? The reason being is how good of a backup is gonna be for safe one Barkley, because it kind of dealing with the New York Giants in Leicester, which is heavily rely on stay calm, Barkley.
And then when he got hurt, they didn't really have, like any, any other running backs toe help like filling for a spot.
I feel like the Dion Lewis could be one of those.
All those players where, like, if say, from barking is tired during the game or if he gets hurt, do you all loose? Could be a good guy that you could fill in there.
Hey, maybe a couple plays and also be utilized in the passing game, so I can't wait to see what Dion Lewis is able to do with the New York Giants.
Struve onto there head coach.
Probably one of the most probably one of their bigger moves from that scene as a whole is Joe Judge.
We'll start with you, man.
What do you think of that? Higher.
I definitely thought thought it was interesting hiring.
I definitely think it's an improvement from a Pat Shurmur.
I feel like Pat Shurmur didn't really do a good job and was two years ago with the Giants.
It wasn't that long, but I I just hope that Joe Johns works.
Works out from the Giants.
When we look at the Patriots, coaching tree hasn't really been successful of the going.
Josh McDaniels was a coach with the Broncos in like 2009.
He really didn't work out well.
I mean, he eventually lead back to New England as their offensive.
Or did Rosie is Today, I will look at Look at Bill Brian.
I mean, he's been OK.
He hasn't been the basket Texans, but he's consistently making playoffs on.
I mean, we look at we look another coach, Matt Patricia, or he hasn't really done done well with the Lions winning six games one year, three wins, the next he's on the hot seat.
Uh, I mean, we look at the one coach I say that has the most upside right now.
That was a former Patriot with Brian Flores special What it is, what he was able to do with Miami.
He's got something brewing there at Oakley for Joe Judge.
He could do the same thing, you know, hopefully, Joe Judge could bring a type of culture from the Giants, where maybe in the not show like our midfield, maybe they'll start out slow.
But hopefully, by the end of the season, they could rack up a couple wins.
Kind of like what the Miami Dolphins did last year.
We're gonna dolphins.
They were like the 1st 3 weeks.
The Miami Dolphins were like one of the worst teams historically we have ever seen.
And then as the season went on, they started to rack up.
Believe they won.
They won their final like over last nine games and finished like 5 11 So if you're if you're the Giants, you just want to see significant improvement, especially from Daniel Jones.
Like if Joe Judge could make a slight improvement and Daniel Jones from year one to year or two, I feel like it could be a success for the New York Giants.
That's the only thing that open forward to them Yet.
There's so many like offense and defense of coordinators that just aren't good head coaches, and they're much better where they previously were.
And Pat Shurmur was definitely wanted on Pat Shurmur 100% to serve the head coaching job, unfortunately, did not end to not go as planned.
And now he goes to an unbelievable situation in Denver and up and coming offense.
And hopefully, Drew Lock is their answer.
They're building talent.
Around whom? With Courtland Sutton, Jerry Judy, No offense, L Row and now building him, giving him even more protection.
So the Broncos were gonna be a funds even talk about when we get to them.
But the joke's Hodgett, the Joe Johns High.
That was an interesting one, just because, um, there were so many teams.
But I really think I could have used the Chiefs offensive coordinator, Eric the Enemy, and it kind of blows my mind how he's gone to straits two full off seasons without landing a head coaching job.
And the one big knock that everyone, that probably is like a big one forehand is that he didn't call the offense and play.
Yeah, but like if you look at in his offense, he was like he had played a significant role in the success of the Chiefs offense.
I don't understand how Joe, judge and Kevin's too fancy landed head coaching jobs with absolutely no resume.
But Eric, the enemy can't land.
What for? Two straight full for two straight seasons.
Eric Be Enemy deserves a head coaching job.
But going back to Joe Judge and I was telling you about this before we went on air.
And if you compare the situations, um, of Kevin's Stefanski and Joe Judge, I think which would have been great for perhaps, um, but he's still experience, and I think it helps.
I think that will help Joe Judge to have experienced personnel around in versus Kevin's too fancy.
Who's going into? I mean, as far as I know, I don't even know.
I don't even know thing.
I don't think the Browns know yet if he's calling plays.
But I could be wrong.
Yeah, definitely different situations per out, both sides up.
We also want to think at Elizabeth 99 for the little 10 tick tick.
We appreciate that it was back to your Joe.
Judge Kevin's too fancy comparison.
I don't think I feel like Joe judges going in a good situation and we look at Joe Judge.
He doesn't have toe win now like he doesn't have to be in a win now.
Kind of like what Chemist? A fancy is in Cleveland.
He has to perform well in Cleveland.
Um, it's also kind of car late on Baker. Mayfield.
Whenever we talk about the Cleveland Browns will go more detail on who has left more pressure there, but a ways back toe.
He doesn't have to win now for the Giants.
Like if anything, Giants fans hope that they could win final six games this season. That might be a success.
Hopefully you know I stayed in before.
The main thing that Joe Judge has to do is you just have to develop Daniel Jones where hopefully he doesn't fumble.
The ball up comes on when we look at Daniel Jones.
He looked good last year, especially when people doubted him picking up number six.
He did OK, but the only downside forgetting of Jones's.
It seemed like keep fumbled the ball a lot and kind of made costing turnovers.
But that's what a rookie does.
You know, you make rookie mistakes and you learn from it and hopefully going into a year to Hopefully, Daniel Jones will not make those mistakes.
And hopefully, Joan Judge and Jason Garrett will.
We'll do that better things.
I won't say great things, but I will save better things.
And speaking of your five or six ways, we'll start with record.
I have been going five and 11.
I've got them taken third place in the NFC East.
Some of the key and one of my It's my surprise some people is.
I have them beating the Cincinnati Bengals.
Um, I there's always a team and everyone every NFL team scheduled.
That just is a fluke game.
And I see that being one for the Bangles and the Bangles.
Do you have a young offense? They have.
They have their have Joe Borough.
Now, the only answer to that offense now for the Bangles, is an offense of line they have done for and and unproven tie then.
But they now have more weapons for Joe Girl, a backfield Joe Mixon.
But I have the Giants upsetting them, but I have and I have the Giants going five and 11.
Would you haven't gone? I have the gold worst.
I have them going 11 15 and The reason why I am going one in 15 is just because the defense that they have to go against No, hopefully I'm wrong.
Hopefully, they kind of go when you said Sam about, like, five or so letters.
But we look at the defense that they play.
This is the defense that they have to play in the 1st 5 weeks.
They have to play the Steelers defense, which ever something treated for me come.
Fitzpatrick turned it around.
I have to go up against the Chicago Bears defense and them adding, having Robert Quinn in the off season with Khalil Mack broke on Smith.
That's gonna be a tough defense if they gotta go up against.
And then the next week they plan host of the San Francisco 40 Niners, where even though they traded to Force Buckner, they still got Nick Bolson still got Dee.
Ford still don't want Alexander Richard Sherman.
All of that defense has got to be tough.
And then on October 4, they then got a burst. The L.
A Rams at the new sofa I stand and he still gotta worry about Arab Donald and Jalen Ramsey.
Then they got a verse.
The Dallas Cowboys twice and we know we know the Dallas Cowboys.
What they got on their defense.
The Marcus Morris Jaylin Smith Blatant Banda Reche.
I mean, they they just have tough defense is that they have to go up against at, You know, what the rookie had coach in the second year quarterback.
I just don't don't see them, don't see them doing well.
Hopefully, they probably wrong, because if they do, then you know that's great for them.
You know, they they proved better than I thought they were gonna be.
But I have them going one and 15 support, one that's pulled definitely bold.
Let's let's go into some A offensive and M v p off a start off with mind.
This is an obvious decision.
My offensive MPP is gonna be sake.
Barkley SE se Kwan Barkley.
He he is the office like I mean, we look it.
It's kind of like the same situation with Christian McCaffrey in Carolina, he goes, is where the Giants are gonna go.
Barkley is hurt than their office.
It could be stagnant.
Struggles is gonna be stacked.
But if he does well, like I hope he does.
Then their offense is gonna hopefully, hopefully keep on getting better.
What about you, Sam? You have your office in this? Yeah.
Mine's also a give and it's take on Barkley, I think.
Stay calm. Barkley is the second.
I think you could even argue him being the best running back in the league.
And Dominic Fox, Dominic Fox worth brought a great point a few weeks ago.
I think it's get up.
Um, if you draft a guy in the top two future after running back in the top 10.
Dalvin, Cook and stay calm.
Barkley Well over the majority of their offense.
If you draft a guy if you draft a running back in the top 10 like Dominic Fox were said, why are you not paying him? And this is I have a question for You mean running backs have shelf life, and this is something that I've thought about two.
Um, teams don't like to pay running backs.
Christian McCaffrey is really setting the bar high for running backs.
Do you think? Look at next year's class of running backs for creations.
You have Leonard for not Nick Shop area. Jones.
Jamal Williams was Derrick Henry until he signed his extension.
Do you see? Do you see, like, this generation of running backs, air like that class? Do you see that? Then changing like the shelf life.
Word of running backs, like, Do you think teams will start Teoh Fork over their money for running backs? I mean, the Caffrey, Cook and Barkley are all well over the majority of their team's offense.
I think I think it's a whole depending on where they get drafted.
You look at stake one.
I believe he was the number two overall pick.
So I me right was in number two Overall, pick in 2018.
When? When? When you drafted number two. It's kind of honest.
They will have to pay.
And then we Only when the Cowboys Japanese ico L.
He was the number four overall pick.
You're gonna sign the number four overall pick.
I think it all depends on where they get drafted.
Like if they drafted running back in the top five, they're gonna have to pay him top top dollar.
And then he even top 10 like Christian McCaffrey, I believe he was a pig, that Cameron penance.
And they also gonna perform to like, you could be a topic.
But if you don't perform like a topic and you're a running back, they make any easily replacement.
You just like that.
Now there is one of running back.
I hope we'll get paid, and I believe we'll get paid.
I believe the Green Bay Packers will will pay Aaron Jones like I feel like if they had to choose between between Jamal Williams or Aaron Jones, it will be Aaron Jones because, especially now that he started the break break out like I've never before.
Aaron Jones is 19 touchdown season.
I've never seen anything like like this before, so, you know, I feel like ever running back is good enough and they have the stats to back up.
They will get paid, but if they don't have the stats, then they won't get paid and work out a lot. Money.
Yeah, that's an interesting situation for the Packers.
Just because if you look at, um, Jamal Williams like, oh, Jamal was lost £5.
5 pounds might not be a lot, because if you lose coming from someone who is a power lifter.
If you lose like so much weight of the time in a short amount of time, that significantly affects your strength.
So, I mean, if you look at his videos, Luke Neil was even saying, I mean, I actually had him on my podcast yesterday.
Judy Christensen from Packer Report game on Wisconsin.
He interviewed Jamal Williams and moved Neil, and he said, They're Luke.
Neil said in his article that Jamal Williams was working on his conditioning and also improving on his rock running skills.
Jamaal Williams, one of the most effective, are receiving backs in the NFL, so well, the Packers pay Aaron Jones.
I don't know like I'm fine with paying Air Jones, but if that causes us to lose either David Bachtiar, Kenny Clarke, I will complain.
Back to the Giants.
Sekou embargo is their workhorse running back.
And like the Dalvin cook situation of him holding out and basically like the Christian McCaffrey's situation or hit him, setting the bar high for running backs, I don't think the Giants air they're not gonna have a choice.
They're gonna have to pay Barclay.
Barclay is well over 50% of their offense.
Yeah, Dad, definitely for sure.
Say Clint Barkley makes makes everything go.
What about the New York Giants defense of NDP? Who you have as the defense of M. V P.
I've got Leonard Williams.
I think Leonard Williams comes in.
It makes an impact on that, Um, young, unproven Huff.
They were one of the worst defense is in the NFL.
They were well below, well below average.
And I see Leonard Williams coming in and making it impact, hopefully, some sort of leadership impact, because the Giants don't really have a guy as of right now that it's kind of in that role.
What do you think? Yeah, I agree with the Rose Law.
Leonard Williams could be their their defense of them BP.
And it will be convention because when when Leonard one was with the Jets, he didn't make a problem.
2016 when he had seven sacks, said no.
He dig it, placed on a franchise tag worth $16.
And, you know, I thought he could have a breakout year where he comes into a contract year and, you know, maybe he goes out there and proves his worth improved proves like, Hey, you know, I deserve to be, You know, this kind of money and hopefully he could even improve on the judge defense, which Ghana needs almost anything.
So if anything, if he does good, it just helps.
Is most improved.
Looks like this one, that most improved player.
I got that boy, Danny dies.
I feel I feel like Daniel Jones is going to be the most improved player on the New York Giants.
And the reason being is because, I mean, we look at he he definitely shouldn't surprise a lot of people last year.
I mean, he basically said Eli Manning into retirement Diamond.
Basically, just so just also, some of you guys know, uh and I just first, I think the only thing Daniel Jones has to work on is just holding on the ball.
I mean, we look at Daniel, Jumped, didn't and everything else okay, you know, he was picked sixth overall, so he definitely has, like, that kind of pressure.
I mean, even Max government said like when he first contracting.
He said he better **** well be a Hall of Famer.
So he he's already got.
He's already has that like he has to be.
He has to be something special for for that to work.
And you know, he's He's definitely got got, like, a big shot.
It'll overcome especially what Eli Manning meant to the New York Giants.
You know, a level of consistency.
He was pretty much the Iron Man almost his entire career and led the Giants to two.
Super Bowls had had probably some of the greatest postseason runs in NFL history.
You know, in 2007 in 2011 beating, beating, great TV, there's Tom Brady twice.
You know, he went on, you went on a great run.
So we look at Daniel Jones he's got He's definitely got some very expectations to fill plan.
You know? I just think he's gonna improve from your one of your two.
It may not show in the week total, you know, have a going 1 15 but I definitely expect to see an improvement from Daniel jokes.
Maybe less. Sternal.
What about you? Yeah, I agree.
I've got Daniel Jones as well, and I was going through this a while ago with a few people, friends, family with about sleeper quarterbacks I know a lot of people are gonna put Drew Lock, which I think is rightfully so.
I picked bigger Mayfield, but I think Daniel Jones is another good one.
I think they addressed one of their biggest needs on the offensive side of the ball, knows protecting their quarterback and like like I said before Isaiah Simmons, you couldn't.
It's a guy you could have gone wrong wrong with.
He was a guy that would have made an immediate impact.
The quarterbacks are hard to combine if you truly think if they truly think that Daniel Jones is there.
You need to do everything you can to protect them.
They trap the three offense of lying three guys that we went through, injured Thomas.
Shame, love you and Ben Pierre.
And I think Daniel Jones will continue to get better with, hopefully better protection.
You know, hopefully you'll go improve his game as well, especially with the big protection drafts back.
He got, especially getting three linemen.
Let's move on to the next team that we won't discuss.
It will be the new and improved no longer the Washington Redskins there now, the Washington Football T that's gonna rather bodies to Washington.
Already, The main thing that the Redskins Dylan let's talk about their draft.
They draft probably one of the best edge rushers in the draft with the number two overall pick.
They jumped in Ohio State edge rusher Chase Young.
What are your thoughts of the Redskins going after Chase Young? Even though during the draft there were some rumors that hey, maybe they might go in and trade for into, uh, telling by a lot in the draft.
But they were smart and went with Chase.
Yo, how good a live do you believe that will be for the Washington football team? They took not only the best player available, but they took the not one of the best addresses in the draft.
They took the best player in the draft.
Joe Borough might have been.
Joe Borrow was a top five player in the draft Chase.
Young was the best player in that draft, and this isn't this is a defense that is up and coming.
I mean, yeah, they had Thomas Davis, but this is young, up uncommon.
Monta sweat on the other side of the ball.
Vermont s one on one side Chase Young on the other, and this is my boat tradition.
Chase Young will be better than the Bosa Wu.
That, that is, that is definitely a good, bold, bold prediction.
There some some other picks that they didn't make.
The Washington Red, not Redskins.
The Washington football team made with the third round.
They drafted a receiver, Antonio Gibson.
They also drafted a L S U tackle Shadid Charters and then another receiver and an unequal golden.
So I just want to start off by saying, How big of an impact do you believe the rest of those players will make for the Washington football team? Well, I think, Terry, I mean, this wouldn't be I'll just say mine right away, I think.
Turn McLaren's Meyer.
He's my office of EVP.
I think he's in her breakout year.
They don't have Calvin Hartman.
I think Calvin Harmon was in for a really impressive year.
He he would have been my most improved player if he had it tore his A c l.
But I think we're going to Seymour of Antonio Gandhi Golden.
We might see a little bit of Antonio Gibson in the backfield because he he's a guy that can be used in a variety of ways.
In that offense, I mean, Antonio Gandhi goal.
That is another big guy that the Redskins need for weapons and, hopefully, who knows what their quarterback situation and we have.
Kyle Allen, who the the Redskins traded 1/5 round pick for they brought in from the Panthers.
Is he there? Answer that.
I know there's some maturity issues in that room in that quarterback room that they're dealing with.
And Alex Smith just that clear today.
I do think we Seymour of I could see.
I think more of Antonio Gandhi golden people think.
Big body receiver.
Not overly fast.
So not overly impressive.
He's not the most Chris brought runner, so he's a guy that needs grooming.
And Tony of gives a guy that's he's gonna be a lot of fun because he's a guy that could be used in a variety of different ways in that backfield and in the receiving game.
What do you think? Yeah, I definitely agree as well and I mean, we looked at I think the right the Washington football teams made receiver is the out of state receiver tearing McLaurin.
And I mean, we look at Antonio Gibson and another Antonio Gandhi golden.
I feel like they can make immediate and packs for.
But then what? Receiver positions and and I got like, how you said It's gonna be an interesting quarterback room because it is commission quarterback with.
We look at Kyle Allen.
He showed some bright flashing with the Panthers. Thank.
He shows some not so bright flashes as well.
Look at Dwayne Haskins.
He was drafted number 15 by the Redskins last year.
Kind of threw in the fire when they played the Giants.
I feel like he definitely wasn't prepared for that.
Did OK his rookie year.
And then now Alex Smith being cleared to play.
I feel like changes.
I mean, we looking before and that he hears the key.
Before Alex Smith suffered his injury, he had he had probably was up at a six and three record leading the division, and then he suffered one of the worst entries by quarterback and they rested.
The Washington football team has been the same since the finished that season from six and 3 to 79 and they finished at three and 13.
So this isn't gonna be an easy, easy win for Dwayne Haskins.
I'm going clean.
He's gonna have to perform, because if he slips, they haven't easy.
Veteran guy now expect that they could go and just you know what? Doing Askin's.
Well, we understand you played your first year.
We don't like what we saw.
Why was that camp where it's gonna let you sit there year watch Alex Smith and that you see what happens? And Alex Smith has been in the same situation before.
When he was with the 40 Niners, you know, he played great.
And then so guided calling company came along when out, Smith got hurt, calling company went in, played well, and eventually Alan Smith got shipped off to Kansas City a couple years against City.
Then they drafted some guy named Patch Mahomes.
Whether you there's like, you know what, we'll that back home since season said his first year, My Osman, do what he does best, and out.
Smith does what he knows best, leaves the Chiefs to another division win, and they let the homes play Week 17 and then the Chiefs have the 2123 collapse on the versus Wade when the first finishing times.
And there and then Chiefs like you know what we like.
What we see out of better homes were trade you to the Washington Redskins, the Redskins at the time and what happens with holes in the Chiefs.
Two years later, they won the Super Bowl and then kind of the same situation with Alex Smith.
First year with the Redskins doing Alex Smith type stuff does well, doesn't really turn them all over a lot, but doesn't force any big place.
That's why they call him check down Smith doing what he does best.
They went six and three, and hopefully he can do the same thing with with the Washington football team.
Yeah, I really didn't think Alex Smith was gonna play again.
I mean, yeah, he got cleared for full football activity.
Um, I might be wrong on this. I haven't heard anything.
Has he spoken to the media at all? I would imagine he hasn't said anything yet, so I mean, yeah, that's amazing.
That's awesome for him.
I hope he plays, but for the sake of this future, for his future post retirement.
It wouldn't surprise me if he decides to retire.
Um, I mean, after seeing that crazy injury, the months of rehab that he had to go through, I'm I don't know.
I don't I almost want to stand by my statement saying that he might not play again, which which sucks.
But I think it's possible.
I I hope if he plays, I hope that would be awesome.
But that that quarterback was gonna be a very interesting one to wash for the Redskins.
And if I'm doing asking, I would take notes on everything on Smith does.
Because Alan Smith he is he is great at doing what he does best.
I mean, I mean, we looking calling, campaigning when he had when he had that 23 year stretch where he led the Niners toe the Super Bowl in the Edison Championship game.
He used on top of his game and he got to learn from Alex Smith and Jim Harbaugh.
Go is a good coach at the time, and when, when Patrick Mahomes got to learn from and you re some people give give homes a lot of credit for doing well.
But without Allen spent there and you read in the locker room, we don't know what that homes can be.
So, you know, doing half skins for were you? I would take notes on what outs with does, because it seems like wherever out Smith goes, the quarterbacks that he mentioned replace him.
So hopefully hoping that happens with Dwayne Haskins.
And who knows? Maybe, maybe if the Redskins don't have it good here, maybe they do bad enough.
Maybe they can just be like, you know what? Let's just draft trouble horns or listen.
Draft Justin Fields.
That's likes himself.
It will be interesting to see what kind of happens there and kind of what you said about Alex Smith.
I'm not playing, and I think he will, Uh, when I When I will say, though, is I feeling out Smith's gonna play out the rest of this contract? Then he retired because, I mean, let's not forget he did sign a four year.
I leave them with $71 million dollars with when the Washington football team, then the first year, had his injury.
Second year didn't play at all, so he's entering the third year of his four year contract.
So it could be a situation where maybe he says, You know what? I was gonna go in two more years with the Redskins or now the Washington football team and that I was gonna retire, make my money and go live a good life.
Yeah, that that's an interesting one.
And I'm praying for Alex Smith.
Hopefully he plays.
Who knows? I mean, if he plays two years locked in, his contract, makes sense, But we'll see.
He's he's got an interesting story.
He's got a awesome recovery story, but it will be interesting to watch.
So one of the key free agents that they signed Waas, they lost Josh Norman's of the Bills and they brought in Ronald Darby.
Ah, a guy who hasn't really done a whole lot in the past few years.
How do you see you? How do you see his impact on the defense? I see.
I see invigorated impacts.
I mean, we look at what happened.
They did release Josh Norman and kind of sentence the bill.
I feel like they have no choice.
I mean, we look at Ever since Josh Norman signed his deal with the Redskins.
He never really We perform to that deal because, I mean, then people forget when Josh Norman, in his final year with the Carolina dampers.
Evil is one of the best corners of football.
Like when? When the Washington Redskins, when the Washington Redskins at the time signed Josh Norman, they were extending.
Hey, this guy, he's gonna be the best corner in football.
He's gonna help our team right away.
And, you know, he didn't really love to that standard.
He he got pretty much burnt to a crisp, Uh, hopefully Ronald Army.
He signed a one year, $3 million deal.
Maybe there, maybe the chief contract that he has.
Maybe he could over perform that contract.
I want to point out other free to signings that that they do sign.
They signed the X speaking Barbara in two years, $3 million deal.
And then ah, then a former Panthers and Chargers linebacker Thomas Days signed a one year, 3.
5 $1,000,000 deal.
And then I also want to point out one last free agent signing that they did.
Ah, Big one was Kendall Fuller.
He returned to me.
I just think that's a deficit situation.
Um, and that that's an interesting running back room.
So I mean, that'll be I'm I almost feel like it's going to be a running back by committee or Adrian Peters that will split with, um either dies or pitting Barber.
Um, and I will hopefully see a little bit of Antonio Gibson in the backfield.
Yeah, it'll be interesting to see what happens there in the end up running back room, especially like it might be.
A very infusion has resurrected himself well there.
Like he's not the same play he wants.
It was with the Minnesota Vikings, by any means.
But, you know, it's it's kind of good to see Adrian Pearson.
It's still still going at it.
Same with the Frank Gore like it's still good to see, like those old running backs, kind of proven proving Doubters wrong.
Like like, you know, the the main saying goes, is when a running back kids 30 their play falls off.
But Adrian Pearson and Frank or Dave, they've kind of turned back on its head.
Uh, now you didn't make something points with Kendall Kendall Cooler men's or four for that young up and coming defense.
But I think Thomas Davis the fact that he has that relationship with Ron Rivera.
Ron Rivera, who has had who has been a part of a winning culture.
He took the Panthers to the Super Bowl.
Um, and so Robert knows what it's like the wet and he has pieces of.
He has pieces for that.
Washington for balls here to build off of.
Yeah, he definitely does.
And let's let's move about in one of their big, big things in the offseason.
Besides change, the team name was Washington football team hiring and now head coach Ron Rivera.
Lett's kind of get into it.
How much? How great of a hiring was this for the Washington football team and their direction in the futures? I think Ron Rivera, I mean, he I think he deserved to be fired.
But I think he's going into a really interesting situation because there's there's a lot of talent on defense.
There's a lot of potential on that defense and there's you have a quarterback room who I mean, we don't know what's going on.
We have three quarterbacks.
They don't know who the Q B one is.
I think Ron Rivera is going into an interesting situation.
Hopefully, twin Haskins.
I think Dwayne Haskins could be their answer, but I think we have to see more of him, um, for me to say that, but what do you think of it? I think I think it was a great move by the Washington football team.
My feeling I could get one of the things that they that they did right in the off season was getting the head coach.
My being in mind being the key than keys toe every NFL team, you may have all the time.
How in the world.
But you gotta have the coach that could make it right.
That's why that's why.
Mind being Cleveland didn't work was they had all the talent.
They just didn't have the right coach leading the way.
I feel, I think, the Washington football team.
They have the right coach Ron Rivera, who essentially, he didn't leave the Carolina Panthers to the Super Bowl and turned them into into into inconsistent playoff team for a couple of years, you know, and obviously you know, I I felt Ron Rivera was kind of low bit sliding in Carolina.
I feel like he should have finished out the season just because of what he did the franchise.
But you're gonna also admit, like the Carolina Panthers were moving in a different direction at the time.
So it was only fitting that they moved on from him.
And, you know, I feel like he's going to go in tow the Washington football team with a new fresh face.
I mean, we saw what he was able to do with Cam Newton.
He was able to turn camera into an M v P.
So you know, hopefully with whoever quarterback it is, whether it's Dwayne Haskins around Smith.
Hopefully, he can turn those guys in tow N v p caliber candidates, and hopefully he can turn the watch from the football team into a respectable franchise.
Yeah, and I I I don't I don't see this happening with runner at all mine.
He is, but Steve Wells, to me like this, is always a coached.
I mean, Steve Wilks was set up for failure.
I do not like the idea of firing coaches after one year because you cannot determine you cannot great a coach after only one year.
So I think even the man even Matt the floor.
I mean, I think I think Ron Rivera will take it.
I think you could go at least 3 to 4 seasons.
Um, before you can actually judge how Ron Rivera is doing in Washington.
Also, what you said about Steve will, I don't think Wilkes was given a chance at all. 16 in Arizona.
I'm feeling what Arizona was struggling, and they saw fair chance at all.
And I agree with what you say.
You you can't judge a coach after its first year be the same thing.
Like if Matt look her struggle with the Packers in the first year.
We can't really be upset because it's his first year.
Like what? What? You expected the Packers to make the playoffs anyways, so I just didn't think we make a chance to get.
I thought we pulled one of the good old Green Bay Packers Airways make the playoffs of that and defense underperformed a lot of critics saying that we were taken one second or third place, not even making the play house.
Oh yeah, there Okay.
There are a lot of Doubters saying that if Rodgers doesn't make the blasted effect his legacy, But he proved all the Doubters wrong.
Hopefully, we can do it again.
So moving on to the record onto the team predictions, Um, so unless you start with this one for the Washington football team, I have them going three and 13.
Well, I do see the makings improvements throughout the season.
Now, some of the winds that I do have them.
I do have the meeting, the Giants.
I do, other being the Panthers.
But I do have the winning one trap game.
I do have them being the Seattle Seahawks.
I feel like they are kind of like what you said earlier.
There's always that one game that's you expect now thinking the win, and they just don't happen.
I feel that's going to be with the Redskins and the Seahawks.
I feel like the Seahawks are easily expected to win this game, but the Redskins find a way to say, Hey, what you were going to turn things around and win? And you know, I kind of want to leave.
Leave my Redskins prediction.
Are washing football team up in the air because we don't really know who's gonna be the start.
You know, at first we were, it was all projected to be doing half because we didn't think out.
Smith, whatever play football again.
But now that he's cleared to play, if it's ill expense, it could be a different ball game for the Washington football team during the season.
But as of right now, I have been going three and 13.
I'm going for in 12.
So, like the Giants beating the Bangles, um, I've got them beating the Panthers and the Panthers have Teddy Bridgewater.
I think we have got to see if he is the Panthers.
Long term answer.
But the Panthers finally have weapons.
They finally have a quarterback.
Hopefully, I mean, they they have a quarterback that can win you games.
We've seen him do it in New Orleans, and he has deejay more curves.
Samuel Nam, Robby Anderson, Christian McCaffrey.
But I see that I see this being an upset.
I see the Redskins beating them.
However, I still see them losing ice, even being one of the worst teams in the division, Um, and a top five pick draft next year.
Um, hopefully that's Jamaar Chase, because that would be unbelievable.
But I've got for 12.
That would be an unbelievable situation.
That would be amazing, Terry McLaurin and demarches that that would be That is scary, that were scary.
Doable, um, for the next, For, like a future scary do over the future.
And yes, yeah, definitely a good scary do in the future.
I also want to kind of go back what you said about Teddy Bridgewater.
He also think good of Minnesota.
Let's not forget before his before his free Clague leg injury, Teddy Bridgewater seemed to be taking the reins of Minnesota.
I mean, you look at he won the division in 2015 which at that time Green Bay was running away with that doing like we have pretty much a stranglehold on the division from 2010 like 2016.
We pretty much have that on a stranglehold, like it was pretty much factory first came along.
It was like, not so fast.
I want to take that Take that division from our hands in 2015.
Obviously, that year was known for player Walser downfall, where he completely shaped a 27 yard kick, which is always, always makes my day happy.
Doesn't make any kickers days happy when, in a stunning turn, the laces born out they were facing towards him.
But, you know, it's one of those where antennae Bridgewater can find success like he did in New Orleans like he did at Minnesota.
I feel like that rule has has some work to do in Carolina being a first time head coach, and I mean, we look and it's all gonna be about Joe Brady.
In my opinion, we saw Drill Brady the success you have in the woman's with that offense.
The Mount Success he had a L S u basically Jack and Joe.
Girls would be something before bed round quarterback.
It was basically to look gonna be the one and then lo behold, one season in job.
Earl has one of the greatest seasons ever by a collectible quarterback, and he is a number one pick and jewelry goes Carolina so over using to see what what happens there.
Whenever we discuss the Panthers, it will be very interesting.
So for offense of M v p.
And by the way, I think Joe Brady through your contract for the O. C.
For the Panthers.
I think he could land a head coaching job after that.
The dude is an absolute mastermind, but that NFC South, we will start covering next week.
But it's gonna be a very fun division to break down.
But for offense of M v p for the Red Sea.
As I said this earlier, I've got terrible Lorne.
I mean, they lost Calvin Harmon for the season.
Um, they've got unproven talent, um, in that wide receiver.
But there's so many positions on that Redskins tear on the Washington football team, that's just in question.
I mean, the quarterback.
One is obviously the biggest one.
But outside of Terry MacLaurin, someone's got to step up.
But Terry McLaurin to me, I think he's gonna break out what you got.
Yeah, I agree with you as well.
I believe that's gonna be Terry McLaurin.
I mean, what what he did last year he made he made a good impact of the other receiving corps.
He definitely proved himself to be the number one receiver for the Washington football team, and I think he's gonna do it again just because the simple fact.
Who is your target? There really isn't anyone else on the Washington football team to target besides tearing the car.
So you know, I believe he's gonna bounce in and do what he does best.
Uh, now let's let's discuss ah, defense of M v P.
I already got mine.
I'm gonna go with in my feet Who's gonna be the defensive Rookie of the Year? Chase Young.
I feel I'm feeling Chase Young.
He's gonna make an immediate impact on that defense.
And a lot of people were saying that Chase Young is gonna be the best edge rusher out of Ohio State in the draft period.
Better than Nico's.
Better than Joey Bosa had those two players set.
Since I'm pretty high standards like they are both really good for the respective teams.
I mean, looking Joey Bosa in the Los Angeles charge like he led them to the playoffs in 2018 and had a pretty good defense and then Nick both of his rookie year.
You basically basically changed the 40 Niners from the best defense in football and led them to the Super Bowl and were essentially six minutes of late from the championship before Patrick Mahomes turned into Pat Mahomes.
Yeah, if you If you take big Bosa out of that defense, the diners don't pick the Super Bowl.
And it also had an unbelievable a very impressive rookie season.
However, I'm standing by my bold statement saying Chase Young is more athletic.
I mean, Nick Bosa to meet.
I mean, I think make Bosa is has Well, then she's purchase.
Young is an athletic freak.
I have chased Young my defense of a BP.
I think he comes in and makes an immediate impact.
Yeah, definitely makes any, especially with him being the number two overall.
Pick mine pain for him, it's either defensive rookie of the year of bust, you know he's got.
It's gotta be something that he has to do well.
And in my opinion, I wouldn't be surprised if Chase Young gets gives at least close to a 10 sack mark.
That's a great talent.
I believe chasing compete and then let's close out today stream.
Let's go with the most improved player on the Washington football team, Sam, who you believe will be that most improved player during the Washington football team.
Well, my mind was gonna be Calvin Harvard before it tore his a C L.
But I've met two of them I wanted to go with, um but I'm gonna take a wild card pick, and I'm gonna C'mon, this sweat, I mean, Monta sweating Chase Young.
That very well could be a slept on edge Russian duo in the NFL.
And that is an up and coming defense chase.
Yeah, I mean that he's got Thomas Davis as obviously, but at the same position.
But I He is Thomas Davis for a veteran leadership on that defense and he has chased.
He is chasing hug, who is unbelievable talent, one of the most athletic players on that starting defense.
But I've got Montana sweat making it impact.
I mean, we all know how give Chase Young is and Months has swept film draft because of his because of health issues.
But don't overlook his talent because he is unbelievably town.
Said so I've got months.
That's what being most improved above you.
I hear these wall, I he actually took the words out of my mouth.
I was gonna have a bunch of sweat as well.
I thought he's gonna be that underrated kind of edge rusher because, I mean, we gotta think for the Washington football team.
Both people are gonna take it.
It's, I feel like if mantra sweat, could you Bell may Now? I don't think it'll be right away, But maybe in a couple of years from now, maybe the mantra Sweat Chase Young. Be woken.
Be kind of like one thing charges have with Melvin, Ingram and Joey both just two dominant edge rushers on each side, causing quarterback.
Have it throughout the league.
And, yeah, I have a mantra.
Sweat my most improved player on my offensive player of the year in terror.
McLaren In my defense of M V P and Chase Young, we got Sam.
He has pretty much the same thing as I do.
L Scott term coined chase young mantra sweat.
And we wanna thank you guys for tuning into the stream.
We appreciate it and don't want to shout out at Lizbeth 99 again for the time dollar tip.
We appreciate it and thank you guys for tuning in any last words. Sam.
Thanks for coming on.
And everyone Thanks for the tip.
Um and yeah, we'll see you next week.
We're gonna break down the NFC South so that it's gonna be a very fun one.
Lots of stuff happened.
Probably probably the busiest autopsies in our business division in the off season.
So lots to talk about next week? Yeah.
I definitely lost the title next week.
Thank you, guys.
