you ever swing here? Welcome to the new steps of Sports Talk Central.
I'm divan move my co host timeto dates and birds Recap baseball, football and comfortable up.
So let's start with baseball.
So the national art in Seattle.
It's the last, like I feel like the right to talk about.
Yeah, I mean, I feel like you must be really hot Guys won the World Series last year.
I don't get any more about this season.
It's just like they're one.
They're banged up so they can't hit.
They can't score.
The pitching's terrible.
And I mean, they signed good pictures, but they haven't been able to develop like today and laws.
They're both just really, really bad.
And I mean, Depor, Davey.
I mean, I know people are riding on him, but I don't know what else you can go do.
They didn't do anything at the trade deadline.
That's fine with me.
They didn't need to do anything at the trade deadline.
It's not about ****ens, hasn't worked out teams is not really hitting.
Cabrera has gone cold, and I'm one thing I keep going back.
People can keep my appointment.
Keep him has been a disappointment and replace rundown.
And you know, I know you paid Strasbourg a lot of money.
I wonder the same thing, and I know he's banged up.
He will be finally next season, But you got to actually replace and innuendo, knowing your next season.
I don't really care about the 60 game thing.
I think whoever wins the World Series, it's gonna feel hell.
The mark will print then of 162 game season.
Probably is reasons, but it's just like I've gotta get.
I mean, there's just not fun to watch.
I don't have to keep holding out hope that they somehow squeak into the playoffs now like a 162 game season where they could go on a run and really do something.
You know, half the season is already done.
The season ends in one more month.
I think we could just move on to the Orioles than you did mention trade, Ellen.
Trade deadline did happen.
I mean, it really wasn't much this week to talk about.
I mean, we split a series against the Mets of whatever.
Um, the blue Jay, Whatever.
I mean, those were some couple like, uh, walk off losses.
Hide to coal soul, sir.
Out of the closing role because he he is not good.
Um, I think you're doing a committee of approach Those, like whoever's hot at a time or whoever is coming up.
So it zermatt out imagines like it could be a tenor, Scott.
Or it could be like Hunter Harvey or something.
So I mean, really the much talked about, but yeah, they they did make a lot of moves.
The trade deadline.
So the first trade, actually the first trade they made with actually a few months ago when the season started and they traded Richard Bleier to them Marlins for a player to be named later.
Now, for those who don't know like Sago Player to be named me to be named later is now like a good prospect.
Keep in mind this year a player to be named later is anyone who is not in a 60 man player pool.
If you're not in that 60 million player pool, that and you're traded its player to be named later.
Give me example.
The Orioles number three Guy is the number two who's got with pick number two overall, and he was there.
He's the third best prospect.
He's not in a player pool because if other guys that they want to take a look at because they're closer to the major leagues, so if he were to be traded, he's a top 100 guy.
But he would be a player to be named later, so we don't know what type of guys that we're getting.
So Richard Buyer not trade for a player to be named Later.
We had Hector Velazquez trade to the Astros for a player to be named later, and then we made our first deal, which was texting texting about.
There's like Tom like I was looking at you return.
I don't know how that's possible, but I have no idea.
And did you see the game he had again, like last Sunday? Yendrick Braves gave up to prospects for him like, and you're also talking about potentially.
You're talking about topic.
If they gave up a top 15 guy with one of the two guys in the top 15 guy, I don't know.
And then I mean in reality to probably getting a guy who's like in the 20 thirties in the Prospect System and then a guy outside the top 30 but still getting it, not 20th Top 30 Prospects for Tommy Malone is still pretty good Holt by itself.
And then they traded Michael Givens, which that was expected because yeah, um, because I and honestly, usually those guys are very inconsistent for like, the last couple of years, he's not a closer.
His theory was like run for, but he's a really good seventh or eighth inning guy.
And we got back the, uh, Terran Varro and, uh, not feel 11 but hits on Tyler in heaven in the trade.
So Nevin is the and a player to be named later.
So again, they're getting a ton of prospects.
They they're really starting to overhaul their farm system.
Not that hormonal can't get into that, but Nevin is a first base, third base prospect.
Ah, Triple a guy.
He might be good.
Might be a role player. Whatever.
Uh, Karen Barbara is he's a second baseman and he can play short, apparently, but I feel like they're gonna put him a second.
Lefty guy hits for good.
Average good hit tool strikes out as much as you walk, so that's always something good to see.
And then, um, and both of those guys, we're a couple years away.
Favreau's look just sevens prompt Beth Prospect in the rocky system.
And, um, Navin was the 12th.
Now I think Favreau's like the 12 best in the Orioles system and Barbara in evidence like Favreau's, The 12 best guy and then Nevin was the 23rd best guy.
So that tells you how good their form the Orioles from system is getting better.
The fact that you who has sevens now 12.
Um so I looked natural.
And then they flipped Mago Castro for Kevin Smith and I'm shocked and Mets gave him a because he was their pitcher of the year.
Um, pitch like 117 innings.
130 strikeouts. Lefty.
It's the Mats You remember? Yeah.
Yeah, And so they traded him.
He's a double a guy.
Best prospect of the Orioles tells best prospect, so they've got back some promising players.
And then again, you six player to be named.
Laters. Essentially five.
Just six players.
So We don't know who those guys are.
They might be good.
They might be like, 20 or 30.
They might be like top 15.
We don't know, but MLB dot com did a, um, updated rankings just based off the prospects.
And they they said that the Orioles are now how they have the eighth best farm system in baseball.
That's pretty good.
Yeah, I know. Consider.
You have a couple of years ago, they were probably around 25th.
Like their problem? Yeah.
And then the newer Gene Khan took over and savor just But right now and then, I think Michaelides said, we're building.
We're trying to build a recount pipeline.
Like I mentioned she episode ago.
They got four guys in the top 100.
You want amount? Castle probably would have been in top 120.
Um, they And they got three guys that in trade that put him in top 30.
You still have left five or six guys.
Who? Whoever they are, they may be in the top 30 so I don't think there's anyone.
Maybe Mount Castle loses his prospect status.
Maybe he doesn't.
Who knows, But, um, So you do have 100.
Harvey, I think, may lose his prospect status.
Who knows about him as well? So they should have a strong farm system.
They're probably going to pick.
Um, if they struggle for in September, they probably have a top five pick.
So expect another top 100 top 100 guy in next year's draft.
Just really exciting to see some of these guys starting to come up.
And now I'm just excited to see some of the cross backs I know.
He made his debut against Blue Jays through, I think, like 42 3rd scoreless for 13 for two thirds scoreless innings.
So he's been pretty, uh, think so.
He looked pretty good.
Um, I just hope that I mean, there, they're gonna play again.
I think they play four games.
Siri is against you, Yanks to Metz next week and then another series against the Yankees.
So this week and last week, basically this week and next week, we're going to be on that are like the New York Siri's or something, and it's a good time to catch the Yankees.
Honestly, it is Yeah, and I'm speaking of New York.
I didn't want to say this on the podcast.
You know what the max with Tom Seaver there must be about because, yeah, my uncle group about Stan.
My dad also grew up in that stand, so that was really shocked themselves.
So if all the fans out there that listen to this, you're just in general, I feel really sad and just I want to extend their condolences to you, but we could box.
Yeah, we can rebound.
So, um and then really yummy like, um And then, like I said, we have what? We have the Yankees.
I don't know who did naps.
I don't I don't hear they got swept by the Phillies.
So that's like, Does it for me? Yeah. Yeah.
And then, um I mean, do you want to talk about the Padres at least and what they were able to do? And the Potsdam Padres, You know, their age, a proper look and doing his invest Billy Beane impression from Moneyball.
Yet I'm in on him.
I'm in on him, and I know it was like he's like working the phones like back It was in the movie, and I guess if you're Padre Stand, you gotta be happy You have made the playoffs in like, a decade.
I think it's but nine years.
You're gonna make it this year.
Give your things something.
Your teams in a good spot.
I don't think they're gonna win the World Series, but, you know, you gotta get your fans excited.
Something beautiful ballpark out there that's like never has not seen for miles up.
Thank you goes, though the weather is always nice.
There a man on all the talents cost control, keep in mind is what's called Petco Park or something.
It's a nightmare.
So you have them see a playoff game for the first time in a while.
That Boston, they're they're going to be good.
I think for a little bit now, I always like it.
Like it's funny.
Just they came out of nowhere, to be honest with you.
And now you know, they're just trading. Probably players.
But I do think the young the Indians got a good holiday return for how that club injure.
Do you think they did really well, um, X rayed as well.
My friends and Indians that was pretty happy with the return that they got.
But you know, when you're the Padres, you know, go for it when you know even though it's a 60 game season what you have to lose.
Yeah, So what's the Padre? So I do want to bring up the fact that they have been slowly developing their farm system for, like, the last few years, like and then, like some of these trades that may have looked smalling beginning fears go now with huge like, the White Sox have a really good farm system.
Ah, they traded for in ah, the curator of the they traded for Andrew Tattoos, Junior for, um, James Fields and James.
You know, Fernando Taxis Jr was on the on the White Sox and then jailed with on the Padres.
And then what happened was they flipped.
The Padres got Fernando Fernando taxis junior at that point, so I don't I think, wasn't it's highly regarded, but I mean, the white sauce probably look really stupid. Yeah.
Thank God they have good news to get their farm system being really good because they were back a while.
That one, this was knocking.
Yeah, imagine Tattoos Jr was some with the guys they have right there.
I mean, that's a good team.
Um, yeah, and I want to bring up the whole that.
Cleveland God, I think what's really interesting is the Padres don't have to give up and either top five prospects, which amount a bunch of the Indian fans.
But it's like you're not getting Mackenzie Gore.
You're not getting Louise Petit neo.
You're not getting like their guys.
They keep up there and said, You're not going to get, um, like your top prospects.
Even for a guy like Levinger, it could especially was after, like, the whole thing was him.
And please sack and like, breaking protocol like that value his trade value would have went down.
So I'll just shocked that they're able to trade to get Clevinger.
Austen. No, Uh uh.
All the players have gotten and they really gave up what to top 10 projects.
That's it's a treated really, really good there with those trades.
He please quite a few people.
I like the whole the Indian stock.
So they didn't get the top five possible brother Brother was going full on Billy being style.
Yeah, I think, and I think that um the Padres could actually legitimately pose a threat to the Dodgers.
Honestly, I'm not there yet.
I think the Dodgers beat them because I just trust the judge.
It won't There is closer Dodgers pitching more than the Padres.
You know, I know Clayton Kershaw chokes a lot in the play offices does not wasting any time, but any Walker Bueller's incredible.
I just I like their pitching and I I like there line up to a bit better, but I think the projects could scare them.
I just see it, Yeah, I mean, I would imagine their rotation is like ghost limits, but it's pretty good.
Um, obviously clever injure.
You have Crip attic.
So you mean they definitely have, like, they definitely have? At least three good starters said you could, And that's, um, at least when you want.
They got a good location.
They got a good lineup and then, um, drink Grisham.
It's been pretty good.
I will, Yeah, well, CNN.
So I think they could pose.
It's pushing a three game series, you know? So I mean, who knows? It's it's random with the some of those three game series.
A lot of things different things can happen.
So, uh, you know, it would continue the tradition of the Dodgers, kind of underachieving in the playoffs.
I kind of laugh if they didn't boost.
I mean, I'm also like, I'm also rooting for the Padres more than I am the Dodgers, just because their apologies are small market team and they are good farm system.
And I'm a big Machado guy, So, uh, they don't bend a lot like a lot of these big teams do.
I mean, it's not like Oakland A's level, but, like the Padres don't have like a big, um, What's the standing money As much as some of these other teams dio.
But the A's have been pretty good this year, too.
So that's excited.
I like when two small market teams air and the kind of the same state are are doing really, really good.
And also you have teams like, um, the Marlins and Tiger that actually playing with a ball.
Uh, it Toronto is playing pretty well as well.
And so I mean, you know, and I would see Orioles like I mean, did I think that we would be in September and they would be like, I think there s place right now.
They're intense place for they're trying.
They're trying to make a little run here.
Yeah, and I think if they call it the prospects are they play? I think they could legitimately make.
They could make a run at the eighth playoff spot.
They they could, but it would depend a lot on the Blue Jays pitching.
It would depend a lot on whether, um, Detroit is legitimate or do they fall off? So I mean, there's a lot. They are me.
I mean, yet ESPN saying the Orioles may not win 10 games.
They clearly went past that Vegas that they get said 28 a half.
And even yet, a lot of people say, Oh, there's no way they're going down many games.
I mean, therefore, more games and beating Vegas.
Like therefore, more games.
They win former game.
They beat because hopefully they get to about 25 wins.
If they get to 30 out. Be ecstatic.
Uh, and and honestly, you go on a good run for one or two weeks.
I think you have a good shot at getting 27 or 28 win mark, which was incredible.
And with the farm system, I think that's going to, you know, just show how good of GM Elias.
It kind of is becoming, uh, and everything else in baseball that we then you bring up or don't Really? It was really a big other story that happened this week.
I don't believe I think I need a trade.
It was pretty much a trade.
That line now is that there wasn't a lot of big blockbusters other than the club injure trade.
So, um, yeah, emotionally, I don't think there was anything else that really happened this week.
Let's now move on to the NFL.
And so first one is that Ah, six more days. Yeah.
It s close to let's do the Redskins news.
So, like Adrian Peterson, Uh, where your stops on Asian Pearson? Uh, getting really full youth.
I'm not gonna fault them for that.
One friend texted me this morning.
He was pretty ****ed that they released him because Peterson has been pretty good from then.
I'm sure he'll get signed by someone House.
I mean, put up some pretty put up Okay.
Number is, I think, the last A couple of seasons knowledge used to you.
But you still do not happen.
They're going told youth movement.
I can't blame them for that.
You don't wanna pay Peters and not much money.
Um, so at an inning.
And they released Darius guys a month ago.
Yeah, the the Met Dr Stuff. Violence.
So I think the Redskins have Antonio Gibson, and they have Bryce look years love.
That's who it is.
Yes, they got those, too.
So it'll be really interesting for that run game.
I mean, at least I got chased young.
So mean that front seven open or two, I think. Yeah.
It. Hoskins is here.
Yeah, Front seven.
Looks good for them.
Um uh, Seahawks signing.
Um, they find Josh Gordon.
I mean, yeah, something will happen.
There's clowning news, way to talk about the Khan Younis.
So we basically looks like the finalists are the saints and tighten.
Those two teams were named, and then Benjamin Albright said there's a third team.
And then when someone asked for a hint, he replied with quote the blank and there's only one team in the NFL that has afraid like that.
And after Ravens? Yeah, because, you know, because for those who don't know, um, when Cleveland move back to Baltimore and they picked the team, the Ravens were chosen because of Edgar Allan Poe.
And so he had the famous saying from one of his poems, Quote the Ravens.
So that's why the Ravens were hard, it named as a potential 13.
And then I think someone said, I'm gonna be really upset if this was the Ravens or something like that and he goes like I hate goes like I got bad news.
Like to that tweet. I got bad news.
So it looked like Clowney.
The Ravens are interested in Clowney and look like that price tag went from 17 million to my grown 10 million, so that's far more manageable.
Yeah, I saw Michael, Able said this morning.
They happen. Offer on the table.
That's all he could really say.
They're waiting to hear back from him.
I would be surprised if he goes to New Orleans, chase the Super Bowl Wintry breeze, Brian Me June reasons last year in the league.
I think he's gonna retire after this season. I think it's contracts.
Think like a two year deal.
It might be to one or two year deal.
Yeah, it's not going back for this season or the next, but you might retire after this one anyway.
So, yeah, I was going to get up.
There is some good options there.
I would say that, Um, yeah, like those are good options.
You wanna go to a Super Bowl? I mean, if he wants to win, I think, See, I think New Orleans in Baltimore, like the two more eruptions.
I mean, in Baltimore, that front seven will just being seen like the front Mark Temple Williams Wolf that I mean on a one year deal short.
That's fine. Like, I would love to see that.
Um, the Saints do you make a lot of sense? I I think that's where he ends up.
Um, I think he could end in Baltimore.
I Tennessee. Maybe.
I think those are the three teams you'll end up on now.
Apparently a reason he didn't sign.
One of the reasons is he's not a fan of training camp, so I have no like.
That's one of the reasons apparently like he's not a fan of training camp training camp.
Think training camp ends today for a base out.
So I think the next yet next week is the game product for basically everything lead. Yes.
Yeah, that waited until this time to start.
That's what I believe so I mean, that's the county needs now.
There was now they said that, um now he did like earlier he did get, apparently get to offers, at least from the Browns, and said Nope, not interested.
So that I mean, so he clearly didn't want to play for them.
It looks like a Steelers really aren't interested in him.
Uh, you don't have the money.
So this is not happening.
And then on anything The fourth game, they mentioned Jaguars as a team going after Cluny.
They just traded Jonathan gac way.
And then they released letter for net There.
They're dumping salary while they add C.
No, no, I don't buy it like my point was undone by like And I think, um, I was watching a youtuber engraving.
Who? The big Ravens fan.
He said, Well, for at first of all.
And he made a couple of points when one first point.
If Clowney didn't want to sign with Cleveland, what makes you think he wants? It's I was Jacksonville.
Cleveland's expected the weather Johnson abilities this season.
Yeah, so, yeah, it's pretty much as I was like, No, but I don't buy into that.
Honestly, it's like I said, Saints, Titans or Ravens.
I think it's one of those three teams.
Uh, I don't think Tampa Bay has the money for him.
Have you have a also just song Leonard for Nets? Because, of course, they didn't.
L a And they start McCoy.
Remember? They find McCoy earlier this offseason.
They have everyone.
That offense is either going to be that offenses either going score, ton of points or not scored on the point.
Yeah, it's gonna be a hit or miss.
Basically, every single week, we'll see how Tom Brady is any of Mike Evans to use.
Evans, Godwin, Camera break, Gronk.
We'll see how it is next Sunday.
And then, um, the Canada and and, um that the covered threat we have here, which was the cover story we have here.
Minshew Prima says the Jaguars are not in the business of tanking.
I call Bs on that.
I think they are trying to take a crap.
Yeah, there you're dumping salary and your there's us all tweet this trap picking their way Lost from their defense from the 22nd a few hours almost everyone is gone.
So I mean, boy air granting Campbell and gac way Ah, yeah.
There you go on television is telling business still there? No.
Uh I think the only guys Myles Jack Contagion.
Yea, I think he's going to Yeah, mild Jack might be the only guy has left.
Man, that guy I was barking up a storm and from that I remember that game like it was yesterday.
I don't really want to remember it anyway, but yeah, they're just they're terrible.
Oh, we'll have to bring talked about this a lot to see Kirk Cousins comments that Really, we're not going to get into that.
I work out, but it was very stupid of them to say that I'll just say that.
Oh yeah, And then I think what else and and now I think we can, uh, everything, Everything use.
But let's just unable to have a quick 12 discussion now on our expectations.
So your feelings fan, I'm a Ravens fan, so we'll have a quick discussion on both of those teams.
Were your expectations for a Steelers this year? Um, I think 10 11 wins is the goal, but it was not hard to get your franchise quarterback bag.
You have a defense that's coming off basically 50 plus turnovers from last season.
Everyone's back healthy on that unit.
I'm another Archibong Hargrave, but I'm hoping Chris warmly can committed kind of negate some of what he did overall.
Fire for Baltimore.
So maybe maybe he's gonna start to next to Hayward into it.
So I would be curious to see how he plays to inside. Linebackers are great.
I mean, Vince Williams is underrated on the Y.
Something fan base is not like him.
Maybe because he talks a lot, but he backs it up with his play.
That, and Bush here to is gonna be a lot of fine.
Two starts a corner.
I'm hoping through Elevens takes another step.
I'm not really confident that he hasn't taken that next.
That means development that I really expected him to take your doctor the first come pick he was not.
They took him as a project and then he started up there.
And you're bringing this as Virginia Tech graduate.
So, like Like we always want at all Hokies to be really good.
I thought he would be ready for this, but like you just hasn't been you just in a really big work in progress.
And I'm hoping this is the year, you know, your three.
Now, hopefully, he really comes out in our have some ball skills because his ball skills are honestly, not way.
The wind's pretty good.
The band's more act.
I'm really excited for chasing people.
And with Deontay Juju, James Washington, I think that's in good receiving corps.
It's not, you know, no, I used to be a force with the prime and Tony around in there, but I think just action, buddy.
Yeah, hopefully, yeah, I think he's gonna have a good bounce back season.
I think I don't think he's gonna have to get doubled like he was almost season because everyone knew he was going to get the ball.
We're firing, throwing him but I expect regular win.
Don't expect him to win the division.
That's probably going to be you guys, but I fully expect them to get at least the number five seed in the AOC.
I think they don't make the playoffs.
Something needs to change, but they have to schedule to do it.
Um, they should get it at some point.
Yeah, I think that, honestly, I think that the division is a toss up between Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
I think that, um, if team and adjust to the Ravens because that if you I think Pittsburgh, I think has a chance.
But I mean, I'll go, I'll probably go into why I think that all tomorrow.
It could be taught it to me.
Talk to its shots because when date, the Ravens could make adjustments as well.
So you never know on that front.
Uh, so and you mentioned Chase Klippel, it's either rookie that you have a big expectations for.
Yeah, I mean, he's looked really getting training camp.
He's just a tall receiver.
That they've been lacking for a while was wide receiver, tight end type players.
Yeah, he looks like kind of a hybrid, but he's gonna play out wide.
I'm really sorry to see Holly plays.
They were There were some people say they were better wide receivers on the board when he was taken.
But there's not.
There's some positions that I will always crucify.
The Steel were thinking, because they can't develop them wide receivers, not one, because the track record.
So I'm gonna trust their judgment on that.
I'm really, really excited to see how he does that.
What were your thoughts on? Was it the guy from Maryland? Anthony McFarlane, the guy picked in the fourth round team will probably be the third string running back.
They have a kind of like an interesting running running back.
Then you know you have James.
Congress is like the hybrid back of the other two.
You know he can run over people, but he's also really, really quick.
He converse notables like it's nothing.
The big thing is, he's to stay healthy.
You know, he's kind of like that truck, you know, he's lost some weight, though, but, you know, he really runs over people, and then you have Anthony McFarland just basically the speedster.
And so that's gonna be fine.
And then I think they're gonna have Galen's angles.
Is gonna make team.
She's kind of a hybrid running back, wide receiver kind of player.
Put a bunch of packages with them.
Some people like to call it down his rosters.
Thought that sounds like my common is gonna keep him on the team.
I think they have to cut down to 53 after today or what backs I think it will be talked to keep for Unless he could do something on special teams.
You know, going ago, more like the four running Maxine's, the Ravens.
Because we definitely have, like, a nice, stable running are keeping for, Um, definitely Hoener Snelling.
But following about 1% after I do think they're gonna keep challenge on the team now, I think I'm gonna do for Yeah.
So I have a little more on questions about Steelers a little later, But me just first talk with about the Ravens.
So, like I said, like, the hardest part is what reason why he had someone success.
First of all, I think that there probably have, like, 12 or 13 wins here.
Uh, yeah, 12 or 13.
Honestly, I'm not going to be the one I'm not gonna be like Colin Calvert's say, Oh, they're gonna go 16 and oh, that I never argue 14 to be, you know, like I know, like for me.
I think I think they like I think it's 11 to 5 or 4 to 14 to two.
Jacoby was in that range.
No, but God, bring up his Colin.
Colin Cowherd said, um, he think the Ravens will go 16.
You know which, As a Ravens fan, I'm like, No, that's not gonna happen.
Like he's in a seven and nine for the Steelers.
I'm like, OK, yeah.
Healthy Big gun coming back.
Yeah. So listen to that guy shakes.
I mean, um, bombing to pointed.
I think they're gonna go, like, 12 and 4.
I think they'll probably lose one in game two.
Division one games it in the NFC East and at least one game, uh, where they should win against another opponent or something.
So I think, or you thought game loss in there somewhere, like Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So I think it's gonna be, like, 12 in 4. 13 and three.
I mean, and that's still good enough, I think, to win a division.
But like I said, I like you said 10 and 5 11 in 10 6, 11 and five.
I say about 12 and 4 13 to for Ravens.
So, like I said, should be pretty close.
So couldn't make it.
I think both teams are making it into the playoffs, no matter what.
It's just which one who wins division and who goes, who's the wild card? So I'm with you on that movie.
Other teams from last year, maybe, but also I think you're going to make it again.
Oh, no, I don't think Houston they will.
I'm not really sure who with, Oh yeah, Attendant Tennessee.
And then you add New England, I think nearly New England.
There are costs up.
I'm not sure they It all depends on Cam.
If he's healthy, if he's not the same, they won't get in.
Yeah, and then, Um, yes, So it's go on, go more to the Ravens.
So the reason why they they had success was mainly could.
They had four players to supply the offense.
Lamar Mark Ingram marquees who was like 80% of 60 or 70%.
And then that Mark Andrews.
Pretty much no, there were those.
Were your four targets really like Miles? Boykin didn't really do much.
Willie Snead had some nice catch with here and there.
Ah, by why, like gives him draft, they went out and got Devon Duvernay.
Who Who's who? The faster runner, who's fast.
I think you combine him with Hollywood.
I think that's like that's going to be tough to defend against.
And especially if you can buy, will these It could release need in there as well.
And Miles Boykin I mean, that's a pretty good. I mean, they're young.
I mean, other than Willie Snead.
Those are young receiver, so they're gonna make mistakes.
But I think there is a very there's high potential for those guys.
Yes, that had running back, um, one of the biggest.
Another issue was fact of later in the season, you saw that Ingram was getting tired or was hurt, and they they really in trust, Justice held, or Agus AdWords at that point.
But now imagine.
Okay, so in growing has slowed down or whatever.
What you got? J.
K. Dobbins? Well, you got J k Dobbins in there as well.
And then you got guts, Edwards, and you got, um ah, just details.
I mean, those therefore good running backs.
You have Lamar as you're kind of your prototypical six running back, and then you have, um, what do you call him? Um, Patrick are your full back if your fifth like those of your, um And then if you want to jack sweeps and I think we can get more into that was, uh was attack when you talk about Virginia attack and that is we have, ah, markets.
Could you just repeat this? Well, so, really, there's, like, eight guy or even Devin beer nuts.
And nine guys who could run.
Who could be running the ball at some point? Um, some way more than others.
But still the run game flat.
Better align, Janda gone.
We'll see how good Pflueger is.
Um, defensively, off the Earl.
Thomas recovered that.
Ah, but they still got a pretty good secondary.
They improve their front seven.
So the point I was making before was they were talking about ah, team making adjustments to the Ravens.
But the issue is that the Ravens made adjustments like they had their front seven wasn't great.
Their run defense was engraved.
What do they do? They improve their front seven with Campbell Ah, and Wolf and Hope Maybe, hopefully Clowney on the edge as well.
So that's going to improve the interior pass rush, which is a weakness from them.
Last year, the out by run was a big problem.
Nick Shaab, the guy from Buffalo, Raheem Mostert.
They went out after Queen, um, and and some other guys were faster.
You can get on the edge.
The secondary should be better.
We got tape on Young's coming back.
You words are He's our top slot corner.
He missed all of last year's an injury, so he's gonna probably be there and then push, um, modeling Humphrey to the outside.
So it will be Humphrey and Peters on the outside, TV on young in the slot.
And then you, uh, Chuck Clark, who's gonna be it with him as your strong safety and then to Sean Elliott as you're free So the secondary looks like it's going to still be good.
The front seven, uh, it's still gonna look.
They made improvements on their defense special teams you never you never.
You don't really have a question mark on them.
So an important return.
Probably your punt returner.
And as long as he can catch the ball and, um and maybe even run maybe 10 or 12 yards per or and then kick off.
I mean, so there were even have some small errors that not a lot of fans knew about because they were winning so many games, But they did a pretty good job of, um, covering it up.
Was there any draft picks that you hated that the Ravens got? Ah, Dobbins was kind of annoying.
Patrick Ewing was kind of annoying to almost everybody here that lost your stand.
Wanted the Ravens, took seven.
That just ****es off a lot of super stands because you guys always sort of do that.
But also I think it's yours and reports of similar job boards.
So I think that's going to happen.
I think Rhonda organizations very saying like it's very similar then, after we respect between organizations come from like they can recognize, you can see a lot of each other and there yeah, they both build through the draft a lot, and it's just Yeah, they were both very birds and more, and they don't really care about like, they They want to get rid of all the negative and BF stuff like the Ravens with their old Tom and stay pretty much said, no, you're done like we don't want you on a team.
Like if you're gonna continue act like this and I'm pretty and you guys with ah Bell and yeah, I think they put up with a lot of Antonio Brown's nonsense over the years.
But there came a point where they were just like, yeah, so I mean, on the Steelers, I I'll admit I did not, uh, I was in the fan.
I did not like how you guys picked picked Anthony McFarland.
And it may be it because, uh, you don't I, um it's not always like the big names, big draft picks you think of, or big name players that annoy, um, that will annoy you.
It's like the smaller gods that you don't recognize, but, you know, they will have a big impact.
So I think McFarland's definitely guy, um, because ready have probably why he does what he's looked good in camera Pan lease.
I think he's gonna be, But as you returning Kickoffs, so that's going to be fun.
And then, um, yeah, I'm just double checking and see if there's anything and breaking youth here.
Um, with the Orioles, and I didn't know what the NFL, I don't, um So like, I mean, Claypool, it's fine.
Like, I'm more scared of Highsmith.
Like Alex Highsmith, your third round pick.
He's playing time that I could have probably groomed him to be buds replacement because he's off franchise side after the Caesar.
Um, and they're not gonna teach at walk.
Oh, because you have to pay him.
So yeah, he'll he'll get some playing time in there because she had bought gets hurt or God for bed. T jackets hurt.
I don't want that.
Yeah, and you're not gonna be able to pay both of those guys, especially with the contract that way.
Have a lot of salary cap decisions they have to make coming up but is going to have to walk after this using.
But right now they have one of the I think, one of the five best duo pass rushers and football something that excited to see them go at it this year? Do you think they're like with the Ravens? Because let's assume that they're gonna be responding.
They're gonna keep drafting of both they can.
They're gonna mansion salary cap as well as a pan their window of opportunity.
It is within the next Allstate's three years, three or four years like dealers.
Is that the same like or the like, the next one or two years when Benjamin or a couple years? Because the salary capital big and gets a year older every year.
So it's the next couple of seasons.
Okay, Yeah, I think, um, I wasn't like I think you brought on Could be a ****inson signing for you guys.
I don't think you had any other big free agent signings other than Ebron.
And I'm break and I think I I'm going to assume for a fact you guys, you don't like the fact that the Ravens went out Trade four clays Campbell at the heart pass.
That's another big player online that the sewers line has to block, but we've always had a good offensive line that's always one of the best battles.
Watching the book those lines go at it because this year's long has just gotten so much better over the years.
And a lot of times they can handle the Ravens Pash rush.
You know God has to dance around in the backfield.
Yeah, I mean in my point.
And what I would say is data they haven't really had, like, a decent interior pass rush, the Ravens and went out last year's with Derek Wolfe and Campbell.
I mean, that could change.
So I mean previously.
Just have to deal with Brandon Williams.
Now you got to deal with a guy who 68 £300 and a guy who's 65 to, uh, whatever weight Derek Wolfe is.
And then there and then Derek Wolfe.
Apparently, um, it wouldn't shock me if you re signed with Baltimore.
Could, he could.
This was apparently last year when the trade rumors started and he was thinking about um, like he was hearing stuff like, you know, he might go to Baltimore.
Apparently, he went to his agent, said, um, he thought about going to the agency.
How can we force the trade to Baltimore? Yeah, so, like this was God really wants to be in Baltimore and I think the moment they offered him in, which was after when brought Michael Braugher's deal fell through there's like, Yep, I'm taking it off for So to me.
I think he's gonna sign for another 12 years after this year.
Anyway, um, uh, yeah, it looks like David Clowney the favorites should be the Saints.
Yeah, I think I'm public backing on Twitter right now, but I I definitely think I think he's probably end up on the Saints.
But, I mean, I think, and I don't think there's unevenly everything else in football.
Uh, we talked about Yeah, today.
So tomorrow, when the 53 man roster has come out because the full week of practice starts, right? Yeah, get me so I'll be really interested.
I mean, I don't know.
I can't be burning like battles for Ravens or I don't know the address Wheeler was for defensive backs.
There's been a couple people.
Oh, what's this? Oh, I'm like I'm not forgetting his name, but got Bernie's been looking camp sensation James Pierrick.
Corba family was really, really good training camp. He could push.
Justin, Watch out for those guys like guys you don't know and they have 100 free agency.
Greenlee, like people, are Sandy's.
I'll played a third round quarter that we drafted last year, so people are not sure if he's going to make the team.
Apparently, has been breaking up a lot of passes in camp and even intercepted a ball from Chase Claypool a couple times.
So, UM, that's going to be interesting.
He's also play on special teams.
There's not really a lot of big training camp I was with.
He was besides that one, I would think, like some of like the quarterback stuff, like Haskins was named the starter.
I mean, that's pretty well back off, I guess.
Yeah, that's predictable.
I mean, Cam was named the starter.
I mean, that makes that I mean, started the Chargers.
That may get for next year.
Like for at least this year, at least it's more using, probably until they get someone else in there.
Do you think that Ah ah, what was the guy's name? Herbert.
Justin Herbert takes over at some point of from Tirol.
If he struggles in.
Yeah, I mean thrown over the walls.
I mean, he had also Daryn Janes it out for the year.
So I feel like you never catch a break.
I almost feel bad for charger stands or the harmony charters is there are this war are they don't think don't.
It's like, six. They play 16 away games.
It's so bad at all their fans or two hours south, they can't travel here, But I just Yeah, that tries can never get going, man.
I just want a tire fire.
Yeah, and then, um yeah, and trying for what else? And then, um I mean, yeah.
I mean, we do have the fantasy draft tomorrow.
I'm basically doing some research trying to find, like, who could be sleepers.
You could the all the stops.
I mean, there's gonna be really It's definitely a lot of fun watching.
You definitely have interested.
A lot of research which I've really started so mean, hardest mobilized yesterday was not a fantasy draft.
I need to join well last night so that he knows what he's doing me so more to be.
Did you want to college football to wrap up? Yeah, he called bubble wrap up.
So, uh, we know we do.
Apparently gold Clinton Not gonna move the tacky V a game up.
It's going in The 19th will be, I think a 1000 fans there.
It's looking like, uh uh, one.
I didn't Patrick, fresh in one of the redshirt freshman said no fans, but really, I was reading from any better of the athletic.
And he said that he expected announcement of just 1000 van capacity for that game.
Do social distance, please.
If you go to that game helping idiots and sit next to all your friends, if you some how get tickets, that would just be very very Uh, yeah.
I mean, obviously, I would rather have no fans like because, you know, people.
And, like also Virginia Beautiful Attack.
Apparently, there's, like, a 15% positive rate in the last show.
Their online It will not be willing at all.
Yeah, but I should still be gate.
It's in just about two more weeks.
It's gonna be a I don't want to talk about streamed the game or whatever.
Do you think that like our oceans are going to like this room, we'll probably stream some of the game.
I mean, anything I would be worried about, like the emotions are probably like cod was like there.
I don't want to embarrass myself, to be honest, but, uh, yeah way we maybe can.
Of course, it's all the people use this week where he Blackshear is like one that's huge, Massive.
We have a meeting a lot on text you that they're saying this kid is the real deal.
We're gonna use him in a lot of different ways.
Put a really good numbers at Rutgers Workers is not a good football school there.
The laughing stock of the Big 10 and 13 place rockers like Ohio State.
They blow them out 60 do nothing a lot of times, and he put those numbers with that team being up while I was in Penn State that that last season.
So uh, yeah, I'm really, really excited to see what he could do.
This offense, it's another out of weapon, the running back room just finally starting to look good.
After being barren with last season, Blackshear is clear.
Herbert and talk air and and and hold Yeah.
I mean, that's pretty good.
Running back room.
Do you think we're gonna become more of a run based team is like, run, then play action this year? All well, yeah, I think they're going to run the ball of different way running.
He's also running quarterback as well.
Yeah, and it can run along so well.
Broxton can come in there and run a few plays.
They're going, They're going to use both of them.
I think Braxton's gonna come in.
Our time in Quincy will come in.
Times are on the ball.
It's gonna be mostly the Hendon show, but they're gonna sub packages from the other two.
Yeah, and I think that the running I think it has to be a little bit bigger because we lost Don came to the draft.
Uh, Damon who? Eagleton, Uh, um transferred.
And so it's like trade turn on TV and Robinson Janeway.
Transfers coming in. Which is really nice.
I mean, I would assume that most of our experiences in the run game so I think that's what we're going to start and actually core Nelson with jet sweets.
Everything else we do not like I have.
No, I've never been a fan of this often being on the offensive coordinator.
I think he just tries to be too cute, and it just cost them points.
Yeah, it's getting The world's gonna feel like a little sense of normal when we're all complaining about Dr Korn.
Alison on starting in two weeks, it will influence our I, uh, trying to think of what else way talked about.
So you pick, um, type other than quarterback way picked them to finish fifth this year in PCC.
I think that's my anywhere.
The top body, you know, talk to those.
That's not gonna happen.
But anywhere from the 3 to 5 spot I can see that because it was I'm saying number dame would any little forget me. That makes sense.
I mean, we're the 3 to 5 range for machine fact.
I'd stuck to be honest with you. Yeah.
I mean, and then, um, Big 10 is probably gonna start big tended. Will Probably.
I Personally, I think that starting October just to make sure that Okay, if it's working in the A.
As you see a big toe big. A big 12.
They're gonna double checking everything else.
I also think part of it is they got word.
I like Justin Fields.
He won't play in the spring like some of those eight guys won't play in the spring.
So I was, like, What's tried playing right now? Like in October.
So, um, I think the other thing was I don't know whether it No, there's no one that committed for attack.
Uh, they there only some of the 2021 class.
So not going to see too much news.
Put that defensively.
I think the team looks pretty good.
Are your thoughts on the corner? They transferred.
What's his name again? I can't even something.
Aaron Taylor Never Taylor or something.
Yeah, he'll get playing time right away.
Problems with living with cable, barley, leaving, um, another going wall or on Chapman out there.
Um, but you know, he's going to get playing column.
I mean, I mean, he asked her Now, Farley be gone so really excited for Devin Hunter.
His coming out party is finally here from the highest recruits they've ever had.
It's sound for him to show up now.
He was blocked by Reggie Floyd, for obvious reasons.
But, you know, this is this is his time.
So I'm really, really hoping that we get to see a lot of different Hunter.
Honestly, I think he's gonna be really good.
Yeah, And then, um, you know, seven Taylor.
Ah, another name is I think that's falling full.
I think he needs to break out because he was another Highly.
He was. He was another recruit.
Yeah, so they definitely have guys like any think that our feed the guys like for not from, um Waller.
He needs to show out because he's gonna He wants to be a high traffic ray start.
Ashley needs a shot.
And I think we talked about Ashby because of the big.
We could be picked.
He has a lot of tackles.
That's this big.
You just He's everywhere when he when he's playing there.
So I could definitely has another season like that.
You definitely see him getting drafted somewhere, like in the meat around or something like that.
Like the ship it around or something out.
So yeah, and then, um yeah.
So I think it was Joshua Fouda who I believe the record freshman, Um, he basically on the consular.
Third, he tweeted no fans for 2020.
We know the Hokie fans kind supportive, regardless, so we don't know if that's confirmed.
But then again, I remember, um, what handed the reason what most of us knew the Hendon was starting was because Trey Turner posted something on its Instagram saying that Hendon, what's going to start? So who knows? Yeah, because I read the thing back from any better is now back that he expected that it's going to be 1000 fans for the u.
But they're not going to announce it.
I think, in sale next week.
They usually announces two full weeks prior.
So look for an announcement, probably sometime next week, but no tailgating, you know? So no centre street for anyone.
And I thought your tweets, like the, um, watch, watch, try crowd is going to come up is a I better get Andy bitter, and I don't know if those and be bitter, remember, remember, have seen Infinity War where what they got a Peter Dinklage is character like he's talking with door, and it's like if you do this.
Um, like, if you if anything, this is like when they're crane the weapons, like, yeah, your you'll die.
But if I don't or something in your kind of repeat, it was like, Yeah, that's what then, Um I mean, I feel like I was reminded of that because its own treatment Watch us try to tailgate.
And it anybody like they're going to stop you from Tell it like no try and stop that, that you know? Well, you'll get fined for it.
So have fun paying that off. Yeah.
You know, you know, Senator is also overrated.
I think I was never a fan of I've been there a few times.
I never cared for it.
You know, I can't stand.
The smell of the bear is just too much garbage alcohol that I don't care to drink because I like to do other stuff.
So, um, but I know people like it, but you know what? I was No, I was either.
Like when I when I was, I call it when I was there, I was either, um, meeting with a friend, getting food.
I like, um, Krupp, not D to not not hoagie grill.
Um, you know, CEO.
And that's what I was thinking of.
You feel like get food with my one.
My friends from, uh, and then went into the game.
So I avoided that.
And then when I started covering it protect total access.
I went immediately Teoh, where the media has, like, put like, the media food.
I went straight there.
And what, you think my make sums? Yeah.
So, yeah, I guess for which their cultural problems work.
Remember Jamie Newman from Wake Forest? Yeah.
So that's the big loss for Georgia.
Jakey Daniels is probably starting for them.
So other pretty big loss through that.
And he was gonna be the starter.
I think they were happy.
I think they regret now getting, um I want to do Dustin fields out.
Well, I would say that I was saying I think the only conference that's probably not going to play now is packed.
Well, so we're gonna have, I think, four of the five.
If the Big 10 agrees I have to start playing in October.
We don't know if they will, so, um, yeah, it's really exciting that this is we're looking at the start.
Pretty student NFL is coming back and you have anything else? Anything? Be day or anything like all, uh, Is there anything in hockey you want to talk about? Two game sevens? Or today, four o'clock in nine oclock in the women's Game seven Tomorrow, eso three teams have decided to come back from 31 deficits and tie the series, so we'll see if all three of those teams can pull off, uh, before 31 comeback.
It does not happen that often, but when it does, it's still pretty cool.
Conference finals start, um, Sunday and Monday.
So we're almost to the final.
Um, but yeah, that's basically it for hockey.
Give anything for NBA's or is there? Uh, so we are about 20 old send with its were 24 hours away from the first Constable Saturday.
So that's always That's a good That's a good start.
But by just we're bugged.
Yep, and and my only thing I was like was just It's really more so for like, the like, the college student that don't really care about like there.
But the guy lines, like what people have to understand is that caught like football and no exports in general is more high risk when it comes to Covitz.
So I was like, If we can make that work, we could make anything work.
Be smart, like wear a mask.
Um, you're a lot of names.
Don't be an idiot.
The only to sit in the right all next to your friends just doesn't think so.
Apartment to go to your door and watched the game from there like, No, I'm like, Yeah, and like, if you do like I say if you're allowed to the game, sit 6 ft apart from your friends. Don't be idiots.
There's 1000 fans in a 66,000 capacity stadium.
Come on, you think it's not or six beats what, 23 seats away or so doable.
And if you want to consider up high, you get a great view possible.
Go up to the 50 yard line, Noah, and you'll get a great view and out the other thing was a table games like, Well, it's like it's gonna be like we're responsible like No, you don't understand wonders.
Yeah, so that's pretty much how we're gonna end a show where cultural bullets gonna start tomorrow.
Um, our fans, the fames draft we're doing is going to start is to be tomorrow.
So, um, it's good to know that, like more sports, that coming back every day since the normalcy Now just hope would be smart to Don't forget that tennis is right now.
So, yeah, there's all this is the purpose is the peak month right now, you baseball going hockey playoffs, eh? NBA playoffs, Andy of the NFL comeback that it's very It's almost very, very rare when all four sports are going at the same time.
So were we probably have a lot to talk about next week.
I mean, obviously, we're gonna obviously we're going to recap the Texans Chiefs game.
Heart in body weight.
E um, this one thing about the achieves I'm gonna bring up I just love the fact that Andy Reid at this point, it's fine with people like bringing up the foodstuff around him.
You mean that he has, remember? No, ever.
I think I told I texted you about just a couple of years ago because remember cues on the sidelines and in a show of commercial, you know, someone, someone little out of me.
He was looking at it, and that was the lawful house being way.
Go at it, people, he said, Super heats.
I like What do you do not find the biggest cheeseburger? Yeah, on that, he said in his press conference yesterday.
I got the rings like, You know what? I wear one.
I'm wearing something nice.
I'm going to do all the stuff with it.
Everybody has free cheeseburger.
He he's pulling him, raised all the means of him eating because he's just you.
Just remarking beers.
First of all, if I'm using my if I mean to me, I'm not getting a cheeseburger.
I'm not just a bigot.
Steak ouster is the best they can with the most expensive stakeouts.
The challenge. Making myself a fraud.
Oh, I mean, it's like it's just those moments when you watch your band like where you see them crack up.
Yeah, it is. It is.
Um, and then yes.
So that's pretty much what we'll do now.
Well, Wolf Turbo covering next week.
The game A preview.
Uh, I know I don't rate.
Have you wondering.
What do you do this you are going to? I don't Ravens played Cleveland.
I don't know who, uh, steal your giants.
Oh, that should be easy.
One for you guys.
No. Uh uh. You know, e.
I don't think I don't need to take one mark me to run for 200 yards.
Yeah, So we'll recap that, um if the Orioles air still, uh, they're still energy and do something interesting.
I'll bring that up.
Ah, and that's pretty much any major news.
I don't I think at this point, that's for baseball.
That's what we will do. We don't have to really cover.
We've got to cover anything else.
Um and then, yeah, I think that will be it from a show of again.
And, um yeah, all right.
For show and I think of for thank you for everyone for listening.
Will be back next week.
Same time, same location.
See you next week.
Aren't actually ah.
Well, what? You do something with you tomorrow? The draft? Yeah.
