that's like, That's like, what happens? Toe people that like a rich diner and Dan Patrick or something.
Where that that kind of like the mid morning slot.
And then like a soon as they get off, something happens.
And then everyone has disgusted already about time they could get to its mom.
But it anyway, welcome back not to steal your hosting duties.
After we got there, we found out some news about NFC South.
We just finished extreme about and, ah, it makes me even more confident now in the buck years over 10.
5 Leonard for night for not stand in Florida.
What do you think That I think Tom Brady was watching the stream and he used those little hands toe text.
Big boy Bruce say, Give me another weapon because Zack figured it.
Uh, it's occurred.
She just It's talking that crap.
I can't have it.
It's obviously an upgrade for their team, I think.
Liner for nets, a really good player.
My mind initially were immediately goes to Who's the admin out now? So they just brought in LaShawn McCoy.
They have Dari gumbo wallah who is the third down receiving back last year.
They just drafted Keyshawn Fawn.
Um, it feels like they could keep all four of those guys.
I don't know why they would get rid of a gumbo wallet.
If anyone would go, I would assume it's LaShawn McCoy.
But even still, it's an interesting time.
We'll see how cheapie signs for it's going to be, I'm sure the bare minimum.
But, uh, do you have any thoughts on that backfield at all? How that's going to shape out.
I mean, I don't think, uh, I think at this point, and it goes for the same the same thing for the wide receivers.
I think if you can't be like, Look, you gotta put yourself aside your ego aside, look at what's best for the team.
We have Tom Brady.
We have a chance here to actually do something.
Um, so if those if those other running backs can be cool with it except their role welcome in Leonard for net and realize that if he's dominating, if the offensive line is playing good, he's tearing up.
You know, the opposing team run defense.
That's good for them as well.
They might not get as many carries per game or whatever, but when they do get in there for, that's been tearing them up.
And it's going to be good for their stats.
Good for their good.
Um, might even, you know, get a touchdown, get another opportunity from Brian for net.
Just beating down the feeding down the defense.
So if you can make the most of your opportunities, just like everybody else on the team is gonna have to ah, wide receivers included.
I think they're gonna be fine.
Um, And again, like you said, it's probably gonna be America bare minimum deal.
Probably not a long term deal.
Uh, going to see how it works out for them this season.
But I mean, like I said, if you can't realize that while we just picked up a really talented guy who can help us out in our backfield if you're gonna be But I heard about it, you know, you got you got to be a professional, Especially in a situation like this.
Three years, you radio probably be gone.
I don't know The contract situations of Evans and Goodwin and all those guys.
But this is a team that could look completely different two or three seasons down the road.
So you got to make the most of what you've got here right now.
And hopefully they realize that.
Welcome in London for net with open arms.
The other thing is about Leonard Fournette, is he? It's week, that ankle.
He's, you know, he's off the field a lot, so it's not like bringing him in.
It's a death sentence to you.
It's just another guy that you're gonna have to learn to work with.
And, you know, if he does get hurt, you're gonna have to be ready to take that starting roll back, um, or get a line share that carries.
So I I think too many talented backs is not really that big of a problem unless the backs themselves make it a problem.
Yeah, and this team is obviously win now mode.
They're kind of forming in a similar way to the Rams in terms of contract.
So when now, kind of screwed later.
But losing his franchise in NFL history, they're trying to give their fans something to be excited about.
They definitely are.
That is 100 from that is crazy.
They are the losing ist like right? That is, you would think that at all.
Is it relative, like losing its like relative? That how long been around and stuff obviously can't be total game.
Yeah, but ah, Leonard Fernet, In my opinion, from when I've watched him, he's a bath. It gets better.
The more carries he gets, you know, first quarter, second quarter, third quarter.
He's a bruiser. He's beating down the defense.
Fourth quarter is when he shines.
So it will be interesting to see if he can shine, you know, at least somewhat of a timeshare.
I think he's the clearly back there.
I'm not a Ronald Jones believer in the slightest, but yeah, we'll see how well he can do.
But we just talked about those primetime games like, Is there a better situation for him to showcase in this huge running back market next year? But he's gonna be on the national stage all the time.
He's going to get shown like he said on red zone, all the time, flopping into the end zone in a perfect situation.
It is perfect situation, and that's Ah, that's why he's gonna be willing to take so uh, uh, such a little amount of money because it could be approve it deal.
It could be a potential the win a Super Bowl.
And he's not exactly that.
He's been good, but he's not been like, you know, I might not even like a consistent top 4 to 5 guy in the league.
He has good years. He puts up good numbers.
But as I just mentioned, injuries and other things have contributed to him being right outside the upper echelon guys.
So it's not like he was about to go sign A monster deal, anyway, is the perfect opportunity for him.
Try and earn himself some more looks from some other teams and earned himself a bigger contract and what he was going to get completely agree.
But let's wrap up the NFC for these wind total beds here.
We can start in the desert with a lot of strong takes on the air zone Cardinals.
I watched those second half of their season Ah, late last week, condensed games, watched every game and ah, I've come around slightly more on the Cardinals afterwards, But I've also been reassured on a lot of things on this offense that I really don't like.
Parts last season.
Win total set at seven.
I think they go five and 12 again.
I'm betting the under again.
That's plus money.
Are you thinking over? Do you have that much love for the Cardinals? Why did that? Seven.
That where you have? Yeah, I have them right at seven and 988 If they don't go out and drop a game, I have them losing two teams like the Lions that dolphins.
Even I think the Dolphins.
That's a That's a chance.
This is a team that two of the new look Dolphins can come out and beat.
Uh, I have them losing two good teams to Cowboys, Seahawks, Bills, Patriots go down the list.
So I mean, it's gonna be tough.
Gonna be tough sledding.
I don't really again.
I'm not running to place my money on this, but I don't like the under.
Personally, I don't think they're going to go 10 and six.
I think they're gonna be slightly better than that.
But at seven, you're likely going to get a push and things.
We're gonna have to go your way.
If you're cashing the over 7 88 season, it's still, you know, people view eight.
Nate in the NFL is like, obviously, that's definition average.
But there, like it was a failure of a season.
Yeah, I didn't make the playoffs, although all those things.
But when you're an up and coming team when you only won five games last year eight.
It's not the worst.
It's especially when you are playing a tough schedule.
It's hard to win eight games a lot of times.
Um, so I think the Cardinals possibly do go over over seven or you end up with a push, get your money back at the end of the season.
I would take the over, though, just because I do think they're better than a six and 10 team.
They just prayed.
Brought in DeAndre Hopkins All the things that heart Harken done, uh, for weeks now on the streams, I think they're gonna be better than you think they're gonna be for sure.
But I think they're gonna be better than a lot of people are expecting, uh, Kenyan Drake, probably gonna be able to make some noise.
I know you're not too high on him as well, either.
Um, Larry Fitzgerald.
Uh, either way, you want, however you want to shake it.
This is not a 10 and 16 but it's also not a six and 10 team, I think. Eight. Native.
Right. So I will take the over.
If you want to lay the one third.
And for even money, you can go two points.
Bet and get the line at 7.
5 to bet the under.
Well, it's about the under.
Okay? Yeah, I was just over 7.5.
Makes me a lot more nervous, I would like.
I like the calming presence of a possible push.
Um, okay, so the Arizona Cardinals first off.
Don't think Cliff Kingsbury's a good coach.
I don't think other Murray's that good of a quarterback.
Tape comes out on him second year quarterback.
You see that sop****re slump? That's because there's usually film.
He has a horrendous offensive line, you know, he makes second year quarterback with film with a bad offense of line you get Baker Mayfield last year.
That's not rare.
Happens all the time.
I think it happens this year, especially with a very simple offense.
While there's a lot of moving parts, his Kingsbury offense is simple.
Um, they had their terrible offensive line last year and they adapted right.
They threw behind the line of scrimmage a ton.
I can't even imagine how many, many more fantasy points Kylie Murray would have had last year if he threw the ball forward after watching those games.
He just so many of those counter death rushes on it because this team, they want to get to the sidelines.
They want to get away from this offensive line.
They want to use their speed, get out to the boundary, try to get their playmakers toe work.
That's what's going to happen this year.
And that's not the Andrea Hopkins.
I don't think the under Hopkins makes this offense that much better.
It makes him better cause he's one of the best receivers and football, but they don't have time to target him deep.
And unless he's going to be catching these screens on the flat here in the flat, I just don't think I don't think he gets used that much.
So if you want to take this for fantasy purposes, I think Hopkins is drastically overrated right now for fancy purposes.
This team, man, I don't know.
They're set up in the absolute worst way to compete in this division.
They run, play super fast, and they have a terrible defense.
So if they go three and out there ****ed because the 40 Niners with the Rams last year, a top of Murray had a really bad game like that.
There's just no excuse for that.
But these defense is also in the NFC West.
They all play zone, so this means the quarterback needs to have time and they need to find the open pocket.
Murray is not gonna have time, so that's what we saw in that first Rams game.
They just sat in the zone and they picked him off like four times, three or four times.
But I have zero confidence in this team.
And yes, they're going to make changes.
But not enough and Kenyan drinks already hurt.
He's gonna get hurt immediately, again, is going to be Chase.
Edmunds is starting running back.
Kingsbury already called RB one for No.
I don't know why.
I think for the thumbs up, I'm going to assume that the validation for my extreme hate 100 care on the Cardinals here.
But, yeah, at 7.
5, I will put as much money as I want on this.
If they're not good in, playing in that division makes them worse.
But, like you said, winning eight games is not aching It.
Nate doesn't mean you're good or an average team, even though that's a 50 50 record. Eight.
Nate's a good record.
I don't think they're a good team, especially in a great integrate division.
Like, you know, Yeah, No. 18.
8 and I don't know.
Yeah, I was going to say the NFC youth at East If you're outside of the Patriots, all right, not consider that good of a season.
And the sad thing is that, you know, most of those teams have not been able even hit eight name for years years now.
But if you are a inside of division like this, that just clobbers on each other, and it's hard to win in the NFC West like those games are always so weird.
They're hard to bet they're hard to watch sometimes.
And then other times it's amazing, beautiful football like the NFC West, which is one of those different animals.
And the Cardinals are gonna have a tough time winning within their own division.
I give you that.
I have them losing.
Um, we live twice to the 40 Niners.
I don't know if I gave him two losses to the Seahawks or not.
It doesn't look like but then you gotta play, Um, you know, the Seahawks and or excuse me, the Bills and the Cowboys and other good teams to So they're going to need the pickup winds outside of their division.
They have any chance of catching the over.
That is under percent, for sure.
I think the Lions and Cardinals matchup might be a fun one.
What do you think about that? Absolutely, especially after the Week one tie last season? Uh, let's see.
I'll put some money on a tie again.
Why not get those odds? It could happen.
Who knows, Especially with the Lions.
If they're in position to tie the game, no, they'll do what they want.
They'll miss the extra point when it.
Yeah, it's Ah, it's It's gonna be fun.
Sorry. I was folks not hockey there.
Um, it's gonna be fun to watch this team.
I think just because they are intriguing, they interest me.
Um, I'll be rooting for them so that I can say, at least I was no, not totally wrong about this.
You can't hold it over me every single every single week of the season, but I think they're a little bit better.
Last year's record, at least, which was five and 10 which is why I have them at about seven wins.
You know, they pulled those five wins out last year.
I do think there better this year, Uh, how memory might struggle more, but overall is a unit.
More experience, more talent.
Now, um, you know, five games last year.
I think they can pull one or two more out of the at this year, and they do get a benefit of pretty, pretty easy schedule If they play the NFC and A F C East having a side round bills and cowboys those, the rest of them are very beatable, So we'll see how those divisions shake out there there another team to, as we talked about in the last stream where you compared this year's Panthers team, the last year's Cardinal Steve.
And I think last year's Cardinal team can also be compared to this year's Cardinals team, where they are going to be competitive and they're gonna be in games.
But do they know how to win? Do they know what to do in the fourth quarter? Are they able Teoh score and crunch time in Kyla Murray deliver those, you know, game winning drives with big moment plays that are gonna, uh, seal off a game for you That's yet to be seen.
Ah, as you mentioned the island, Murray could go in the footsteps of Baker.
Mayfield already did so in college.
When in the Iseman get drafted early.
So I don't know, because you keeps following suit and it could be a rock just as long as they could find a way to stop people as well.
Problem is, they don't have any superstars on defense.
One of the best players is been around forever.
Isn't Kleiss Campbell still on that team? No, he's on the Ravens.
Okay, you got have Chandler Jones.
So Chandler Jones is that sounded the end that, Yeah, he's he is very good.
What? They got some older guys and, ah, just overall.
No, really superstars on the team.
They're like a bunch of guys basically on that defense so they can figure it out in the offense better than you think that they will be.
I think they got a shot.
It 77 to 8 wins.
But no, nothing more than that.
I'm not out here saying the Cardinals ago in 10 games.
Anybody, anybody that is would just be insane.
I think that would be a huge week, but seven, I can see that's fair.
And you are definitely in lined with most people on the opinion of this team.
Um, yeah, we'll see what happens next. Team.
Los Angeles Rams from Super Bowl to Dumpster fire, but they're over.
Understand? Eight this season again.
They won 19 games last year.
I have them coming in under eight wins and I'm at sick or at seven, rather in nine.
Um, I'll give you a little bit more reason in a little bit, but what's your initial thoughts on the Ramses here? I have the match birthing gets Nikolay better.
All right, They I think they peaked.
Obviously it was this this group and I'm really gone now.
Um, had of the Super Bowl run just a couple of years ago.
Not the same team.
I have really good wide receivers.
I like Cooper Cup and Robert Woods, but nine and seven is pretty much my cap for me.
Ah, they they just aren't the team that they used to be, and I don't have much.
I mean, I know that's very surface level ****ysis, but I don't have that much more to say about the Rams.
Jared Goff, I think is good.
I think he's service a book.
I think he needs to keep making big take, keep taking big steps forward if the Rams want to continue long term success.
Um, I would not say they went to the Super Bowl in spite of him, but he could have been better in a lot of a lot of situations.
I think they're gonna find quarterback, and I like him as a guy and everything, but he's not the guy that's gonna go out there and just tear it up all the time and win you games and get the most, um, out of your team.
Not typically, anyways.
So nine and seven, I think, is a pretty fair record for the Rams.
And Jared Goff is interesting because if he has a clean pocket, he looks like a quarterback.
Last season, offense of line really struggled, and I don't think they addressed it.
So we'll see if they come out and struggle again. If they do.
I think the running game again struggles.
I think Jared Goff again struggles.
Yeah, and I do think I think the running game and Jared got those handed.
And, um, I don't know how good of a running game he had at Cal.
I know that they played from a very spread offense pretty much five years on Dwight all the time.
But then, when he got to the Rams and the had times early, but he had, he had more time.
Like more time, more chances, downfield, a cleaner pocket.
All of these things come from a successful running game, which they had at first, and then you saw it in the Super Bowl to their running game.
Uh, wasn't really going at the level that they needed it to.
Todd Gurley was at sat out most of the game.
Um, Jared Goff was trying to make plays, but just couldn't.
Uh, I think he's a good quarterback.
I again, I just don't think he's the guy that's going to go out and win you three or four games that you shouldn't want, you know, which is why I don't have them at 11 or 12 wins or something like that.
I haven't around nine because I think they're good enough to win the games that they're supposed to win and, uh, there definitely capable of losing two good teams as well.
This is not a powerhouse Rammstein like we have seen him, and by the way, you can.
Let's do sometimes, like, really bad starts.
Yeah, you can get the line of 8.
5 at MGM Fanduel and Points.
But I love the under 8.5.
I think ain't Nate would be generous for them this season.
I think that I think the league's figured out, Sean McVey.
I think he's a drastic good had.
I don't think he does anything special, needs a very good offensive line to do anything because he needs all that moving parts he needs.
I am the light routes developed on field and he needs a running game.
Just set it all up.
And last year there was no running game.
There's no time to throw.
Jared Goff was one of the worst quarterbacks of all time under pressure and just watching the drills in practice where they have shared golf, have a rusher come at him, stop and then he pretends to throw the ball in.
Doesn't actually throw the ball in the air right now.
I don't think that helps him in the slightest.
And it looks like a Jon Gruden girl drill.
And I'm sure he got it from Jon Gruden under his tutelage there, Um, I think the Rams air fine.
I think Jared Goss contract spruce them, and I think it ah, handlers them from getting the players that need.
I mean, they give him they gave him a lot of money.
I don't think that he was gonna walk away, and if he did, I don't think he would have been able to ah garner nearly that amount from any other team, like the Ram gave him a lot of money and, you know, again, Super Bowl run.
He didn't play well.
High pick, perfect Storm for paying a guy, I guess.
But it's you bid against yourself.
That's all you did there and you mortgage the future.
We hear that all the time.
Mortgage, the future, the lock up, your young quarterback.
And when he's not a guy, which I've said a few times now, when he's not the difference making guy when he's not the guy who put you over the top in 234 games of a season, it's just it's a hindrance and he is a good quarterback, but he needs the team around him to be that good He needs on the offensive line.
He needs all these things and eventually those those top notch guys.
They're not gonna be there because you don't have the money for them.
And now it's in the Super Bowl team with all sorts of potential.
John McVeigh, the young genius, all of it.
They could be gone.
Teoh, you know, heading towards rebuild mode or something like that, they need to be unfortunately, you know, in a hard knocks year in a year where they get a brain new stadium.
They're expected to play like they can't be rebuilding.
But honestly, that's what this team needs.
So they're in a tough spot.
Well, especially in, you know, gonna run back.
Obviously, this year they do go eight and eight, give trying draft.
Well, given the benefit of the doubt next year.
But then all of a sudden, if we're talking to 20 what would that be? 2022 season Jared Goff has now become has now become a true veteran.
He's been there for a while.
You're gonna know who he is to to its fullest capabilities.
John McBain might be, You know, im or exposed.
If you want to say that two or three years down the line, I'm just mediocrity.
That's when I could see, you know, full overall.
And then basically, you gave up 5 to 6 years just to not make amends.
I can't think of, like, a great phrase for it, but just basically, uh, retroactively pay the people that got you to the simple not thinking in the future, not thinking forward.
You basically we're just saying we got to the Super Bowl That was great.
We could probably do it again.
But now we've seen two years later.
Probably not gonna happen again, Most likely.
So I don't see a rebuild coming.
Obviously not this year.
Maybe not next year.
But this is a team that is all of a sudden could be at the bottom of the NFL within just a few years, especially to they're not gonna be able to take up Robert Woods.
I think is a little bit older.
They're probably gonna let him go.
He's gonna get money somewhere else.
I like Tyler Higbee, but like, you're not gonna pay a lot of money to tight end.
How much does a tight end, how you know, a struggling team, a rebuilding team? Not all that much.
Um, Aaron Donald.
So all of a sudden offensive guy who, again three years down the line, might not be the best defensive player in football anymore.
And Jared Goff, who has just been a fine quarterback for most of his career, so that all is a recipe for an eventual rebuilt and all the guaranteed money they sink in the Todd Gurley and Brandon cooks for them both to get completely destroyed by their own bodies.
No longer on the team now still paying those God computer.
Or they had to pay, you know, take some hit against salary cap.
Yeah, not a good.
Not a good time to be a Rams fan, in my opinion, I was very vocal in that.
I thought McVeigh's should have opted out of his contract and when taken that Washington job, go back to Washington.
But they send Rivera pretty quickly, so that was OK.
Uh, we spent a lot of time on the first team was head to Seattle.
Seattle Seahawks over under set at 9.
5 wins last season.
In a year that everyone thought was a down year for the Seattle Seahawks, they ended up winning 11 games.
I think the nine half lines insulting to them.
I have the over pretty confidently.
What about you? Same.
It's the first time in these last two streams where I pretty much just love.
Ah, bet like a no brainer for me.
Um, I think if although is wrong, there are 10 and 16.
I think they're better than that, though 11 and five pretty confidently in my mind.
Um, I don't you can find it, but if you could get a line of nine, I mean, I would I throw everything I got at that.
Probably not out there, but still, the over 9.
5 is a dog to You're getting paid, plus 1 10 to take the overnight and a half.
The Seahawks are a team.
They just win game for Russell Wilson wins games, Whether they're low scoring and ugly or there, you know, out of it going into the fourth quarter, they win games, and they always have a good record.
There's no reason that they want this year.
And then again, as you mentioned when we're talking about the Cardinals, that point NFC, yes, correct.
And then the, uh, Absi.
It was not a good look at the East FC's both.
So both East, Um, a lot of winnable game, especially for a guy like Russell Wilson.
I've got them losing to the 40 Niners wants losing, um, to potentially the Cowboys or Falcons.
Falcons are just the team to that.
Like to see how that the Seahawks kind of just always struggle with a team like that, a team that, um especially in years, that they're playing good, like the Falcons last year, where we're not playing that well.
And the Seahawks typically lose to teams that seven and the Seahawks find a way to lose to him.
So I think that Falcon game, the interesting things should take that.
Want to see hops and patriots gonna be a fun matchup, given that one to the Patriots and then the Cowboys to, I think I've always figure out a way to beat the Seahawks.
This here, but not all that many losses and again, obviously, all the potential in the world to beat either the Patriots of Falcon.
So if they take one of those games also and again, we're in the 12 and four range.
You're getting that line at nine in the app lot of cushions, and I will say you just talked about those two games.
Schedule is very much in favor of the Seahawks For those two games.
First week to go to Atlanta, I would assume relatively empty stadium, so it's not the same playing a home game as we would be used to, and then we to their home prime time.
Eso primetime at home.
Russell Wilson unstoppable again.
Probably not the same venue as it normally would be, but Russell Wilson Primetime is still dangerous.
I know it's the Patriots, but I feel pretty good about it.
I think one time in his entire career, he wants single digit games.
That was nine games every other year. He's one double digit.
I have zero reason to believe they won't again this year.
If you read the tea leaves, they want to open up this offense.
They want him to throw the ball.
It's not going to be the same Seattle offense as we are used.
They're going to run it quite a bit, but we bring in Greg Olsen.
They bring in fill it or set.
Phillip Dorsett and Ah Russell Wilson are pushing very hard to get Antonio Brown right now, so I would assume they bring in either Antonio Brown or Josh Gordon again.
And you know, that would be fun to watch.
And it would be, I think, a huge benefit for a guy like DK Metcalfe who just pretty much run straight lines and trusted oh jump people if you get another defender off of him, worried about another number one option guy, especially a guy like Antonio Brown.
I think that Rises became Metcalf's stock exponentially, especially in, you know, a planet in a fantasy situation as well, but especially just in talking terms of success on the field and regular real life football, I think he came at that.
Should be begging and bleeding with Coach Carroll to bring one of those guys in I personally, I mean, they're both.
They have their own sets of issues, different kinds of issues and stuff.
But like we've seen Antonio Brown play entire seasons, we've seen him completely dominate the entire league.
Josh Gordon does it in such small spurts, and he comes and goes.
He's like a ghost, you know? It's like, Oh, Josh Gordon was here like he's gone again.
Like I I just think if you have your choice between those two, I'm taking Antonio Brown.
Um but either either way, if you get a number one option of a big body talented receiver like that, a guy with those kind of and you could just send d came back half straight down the field, and he's gonna have one guy to be every time.
Well, then Tyler Lockett becomes your third wide receiver, which is crazy.
I mean, he wants post time Rocket, you know, once was back with you, Doug Baldwin and Curse.
And then obviously has stepped up and bend that number one guy for the last few seasons.
But if you can have Tyler Lockett is your number free option? You're sitting pretty? Yeah.
Then, with, you know, Greg Olsen will distantly a tight end.
You have Carlos Hyde and Chris Carson at running back.
Offense is scary defensively.
They just traded for Jamal Adams difference maker, especially in the running game in the NFC West.
I would be surprised if Jadeveon Clowney does not sign back with Seattle, especially, You know he's getting a one year deal now, and I would assume Seattle is the only team that would offer him somewhat a decent amount of money right now.
Just because he knows the defense, they know what they're getting.
He turned down a huge deal with Cleveland, but, uh, he's not gonna get the same level of money about assumed they bring him in So if they bring in Clowney and it's going yo proud, Um, the Seahawks team's gonna be scary.
I think there they gotta be up there for favorites in the NFC.
At that point, I don't know how they wouldn't be right and again just to reiterate you're getting the final nine in the APP as a DOS like, I don't understand this at all.
I think the Odds Makers might have been having a little bit too much fun with the ah, you know, newly legalized product in Las Vegas when they were making this, because it makes no sense to me.
I wasn't even thinking about the defense when and really when I was going through this until you said that.
Obviously, Jamal Adams is huge, but yeah, if you bring back Clowney, um, just the reputation of this defense and I also think they got to be in the running for best personalities out of any team.
Once you think you get to Davian Clowney, Jamal Adams like him or hate him, Russell Wilson has a very alone polarising personality.
Ah, you just go down the list like is just gonna be Antonio Brown honey Brown? Yeah.
How did I forget him exactly? Like so you bring you bring those guys in.
You just start talking about, like, talk about football team that you want to keep your eye on postgame major postgame interviews.
Especially if they have success and they loosen up a little bit.
Coach Carroll is one of those guys.
Anyways, things were going well for him.
He doesn't care.
You could do whatever you want.
He's gonna have fun.
He's like a little bit outlandish.
So I think this car here, this Seahawks team, excuse me, is going to be really good on the field and really entertaining off.
Yeah, I completely agree.
Let's move on to the NFC champions from last season.
San Francisco 40 Niners That went 13 and three line is currently at 10.5.
For me, this is one of the most difficult ones to pick in the entire NFL.
I currently have them at 11 wins and do not feel good about it, so I have them with the over.
Obviously, the wide receiver corps is a huge question mark because of injuries.
Offensive line running backs, quarterback tight end, that saga defense.
I think they may take a tiny step back that they're so good.
Um, it all comes down to that passing game, and if they can stay healthy, get healthy if they bring somebody else in again.
That was one of the very first rumored spots for Antonio Brown.
Never know if that happens again.
It's definitely an ideal place to play.
Great Park, Great team.
A lot of people are going to want to go there.
That's definitely it's a new destination.
Especially standing hands already had experience with him in Atlanta.
If they get some new.
I just thought about that.
That's probably a top landing spot to Yeah, so what's your initial thoughts on this 10.
5 line for a San Francisco? Yeah, we have the exact same thoughts here.
I also have them in 11 5.
I could see them dropping a game that they're not supposed to struggling a little bit in certain situations.
Huge year for Jimmy G.
Like he's gotta be good this year.
Um, we saw him not played his best game in the Super Bowl.
Kind of overthrow.
Some guys missed.
Some guys really make people be like, Hey, remember why we were asking questions about Jimmy G? Like we kind of stopped because this team was so good this year.
But, like, maybe we should start asking those questions again.
Um, obviously another got another guy who signed a contract.
Jared Goff like contract.
And you just don't want to be, ah, end up being in the same position as the Rams.
If you're this 49 of steam, you think you're on top of the world.
You made the Super Bowl.
Young quarter or young? Head coach.
Brilliant head coach.
I'll give you that blood, um, much of the same situation as the Rams just a few years ago.
So if they're not, if they're not careful, it could, ah, potentially be heading down.
I don't think as drastically, but maybe heading down the same path in the next year to where they're just not as good, um as they should be or not as good as they were, even though they say Ah again, they should be getting better.
They should be taking a step forward, but sometimes they just sometimes they just don't.
Sometimes players have better years than than other years and again it's gonna be up to Jimmy G.
And he's got obviously Kittel there, that a huge advantage.
I don't think that you're ever gonna have to worry about Kittel, no matter who were.
When you're talking, who is playing for Went what year you're talking about.
Kill is just a monster.
But other than that, I mean, I could I could see them potentially just coming out, laying an egg, struggling one or two weeks.
And then that 10.
5 line, you know, doesn't hit by one or two games like, I'm just thinking, I don't think it's, Ah, they're nine and seven team, but I could see 10 and six all day.
I can see them as a 10 and 16.
Just get enough to make that extra spot in the playoffs.
Maybe all cylinders, they should be better at out that way.
10 and five, though, does make him slightly nervous.
I had taken the over plus one or two, but again, like you're gonna bet inside the situation inside this division.
Why are you looking at this line? So the Seahawks like I This line is way more questionable.
Less of a payout.
They gotta win an extra game.
So I would be personally be fading four diners in this situation and take that money you would throw on the 40 news.
Throw that on the Seahawks as well.
Yeah, I completely agree.
Definitely a situation I'm going to avoid if I can.
The only thing is and I do agree this offense definitely isn't top notch. It could struggle.
A of cnnfyi eased a lot of or right of differences.
You know, it grapple is not gonna have to throw.
Then outside of the A, f C and N F C East opponents, they play the Packers.
I don't think Grapple is gonna have to throw.
So I mean, uh, Michael's in their favorite.
Yours, too, I think.
I think the Packers lose to him in the regular season and then maybe get a shot at him in the playoffs, and they finally get their retribution in the playoffs.
That's how it would work out perfectly in my mind.
But I think the 40 Niners do you take that game that regular season game to get this year.
And of course, it's a short week, so perfect.
Probably ****ing back.
We have news on the Leonard for neck find for a Max for one year max of 3.
5 million, so the incentives would equal up to 3.5.
I would assume that means the contracts around 1.
5 to 2 so minimum with incentives not surprised in the slightest right.
And that's the perfect situation for him.
You're still making, you know, at least probably million active, militarized.
Play football in a great situation in a good offense, Um, possibly win, or at least get some playoff experience like the Jaguars had that one run to the A F C championship, but that was it.
So even if you don't make the Super Bowl, if you can play ah, wild card game or division game or whatever, put up some stats, get that experience under your belt that's all gonna help you move forward.
So a pretty good situation, great landing spot for Leonard Fournette, and I'm gonna make this known to the public.
Now what I want to do in next off season, I want to make sure we get an interview with wondered for net, and I want to ask the question off Teoh have him compare Tom Brady and Blake Bortles.
What's it like playing with those two? Because I'm a big Blake Bortles guy.
He's He's the absolute best.
I've asked many NFL players about Blake Bortles.
I had one of his former lineman come on and talk about Blake Bortles, and that's kind of my goal for every interview I ever do, I think is the make sure his name lives on forever.
And, you know, And there was one point his career where it was kind of a Joker, like when he did have that run.
I was like all black photos, you know, whatever.
Nobody has a bad thing to say about him around the league.
He's beloved by the Rams.
He was like the lot by Jackson. Bill.
I just think, you know, I think they had to part ways.
It's I realistically couldn't see them still with Blake Bortles, you know, and you would be I would've had to pay him and you'd still be in this situation that you're in, but paying a quarterback and stuff So he had to move on from Jacksonville, but people liked him there.
People like him out in L.
Jared Goff has great things to say about him, and I think he's a guy to that eventually could find another year to as a starting role at some point in a starting role.
At some point, it's career.
Ah, we saw it with, um, What's his name? Glennon.
We saw him get that opportunity with the Bears.
Obviously, he didn't make too much of it.
He only lasted a few starts, But, I mean, that's a guy.
Probably most everybody had written off and like, No way.
He's gonna be a starter again.
And he goes and finds himself starting opportunity.
So Blake Bortles obviously was drafted when he was a little bit older but has a great reputation and potentially could be a starter again in this need.
I did a live radio show in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, and we're ranking best quarterbacks in the NFL.
And by the end of the hour long show, I had everyone in agreement that Blake Bortles at the time was the best quarterback in the A F. C.
And I will stand by that, um, let's move on to the final team in the NFC West.
The most recent team to let Blake Bortles go.
Look at that Segway, the Los Angeles Rams I last owned.
About what? Rams? Yeah, I think you forgot.
We talked about the Cardinals at first.
Okay, look at this.
I was flipping between different, less and less risk Seahawks Niner.
I just wanted another excuse to jackboot Blake. Bortles, I guess.
Okay, so that's it.
What's your favorite over and under for this division? Just for the fun of it for the West? Yeah.
Um I mean, as far as betting it's the Seahawks out, obviously, it's that's besides for the Giants.
Under, I think they're tied for my two favorite bets that we've discussed so far.
Um, hopefully going to be making a few months rent offer these bets.
But most intriguing one to me outside of that is probably the 40 Niners as well.
Just cause 10 5 such a difficult line, like 10 and six.
It happens so easy.
11 and five is doable.
But it's tough, like 10 and six seems like the most likely record, and Vegas is getting us with this one.
At 10 5, just it's gonna be fun to watch, uh, that line gonna sweat it out all season.
I'm sure whether you bet this one way or another, um, the other two don't really interest me all too much.
Just cause as we talked about the Rams, I kind of have them right at their line.
The Cardinals could go one way or the other, but I don't like playing the juice at 1 30.
So I would say my favorite over Under is the Seahawks this year.
Marks here agreed.
Right now, best odds on the over for them is points, but they have met plus 1 15 across all books.
It's most of the books.
It's either even money or plus money.
It is definitely a candidate to move down to 10 even before the season starts, depending on where the Sharps come in.
Um, it kind of depends on if they make any noise over the next week with a signing.
But if that moves down to 10 like you talked about, I'd be very okay with that over just even though I said last last time we went live that I don't like to have that push Ah, you're coming around with a bet I don't feel good about.
If I was, like, very like Oh, yeah, now I want this over.
I feel really good about it and it pushes.
Then I feel like it's a loss.
If it's one that I'm like, put money on it, it could happen as good odds and to push on.
Like I said, the push is a very common presence in that type of situation.
It's just an extra chance to not lose your money.
That's all of it.
But ah, so far, just the reiterates.
Ah, again, Go back, Watch all the streams that we've done so far here on SportsCastr share.
Um, if you would we appreciate it, and I'm sure your gambling friends would appreciate it as well.
But so far we have talked about the entire NFC.
You're only good if you're gonna take anything from these streams.
Giants under six Seahawks over 9.
5 of the two lakhs.
Whether two that's 100% I'm gonna have money on um actually going to be going up to my cabin this weekend.
And for some reason, I just just dawned on me recently that I can use draftkings up in Michigan and my cabins only about three miles Order.
So I will be driving into the U P sitting in a parking lot somewhere and put in a few $100 on Ah, these bets.
So, uh, yeah, I suggest you do the same.
I couldn't agree more.
Next time we'll be back with the A F. C.
We'll get through those this week, I'm sure.
Give this stream of follow if you're
