So when this is SportsCastr news and this guy right here is Joe New Beau.
What up? We are not gonna be presented with ah route today.
He's unable to make it.
Joe was a little late.
That's why the streams running.
But, hey, you know, I can pause and be a little late for somebody, but I can't just make someone appear here.
Uh, I get my job.
You're not I'm not that good. Yeah.
So apparently there was a podcast.
Um, where three.
Shall we say women who do interesting, questionable things was people.
They have their discussions? Yes. Yes, yes.
Uh, one of, um came up and said some pretty interesting things about a specific player.
He that really after I got through with it, I I I really don't give Ah yeah about right.
I mean, is intended 100 pun definitely intended.
And Odell Beckham Jr.
And if you don't know and you're under the age of 18 because this for the next 15 seconds, because I'm or explain.
Yes, Um, I I don't want the young people toe to hear this, so we're gonna have to learn about things eventually, so get well, they probably learned about in school.
Yeah, How, But let's just say that she mentioned the Odell Beckham Jr.
Liked a specific carpet cleaning company in the city of Cleveland.
And first off, first off, who cares? Yeah, right.
This is it true.
It's your whole body except for him.
And what goes on in his bedroom? Work in private.
What person does in his own private time zone Stinking business thinking? Yep.
Opponents ended another one drug.
Odell Beckham went off and said, uh, with the instagram would think itwas yeah, he posted on Instagram.
He made a little, you know, he didn't come out and exactly say exactly, But he did make a little, you know, little side thing, like a little wink, wink, nudge, nudge here, I think, Yeah, now.
But at the same time, at the same time, he's acting like he don't care either, right? You know what the freakin do? What other people say has nothing to do with what I'm doing in my life right now. Yep.
And that's to play football.
And so Oh, kind of sent it to you, Joe.
And you condone Tell the world your thoughts about this. Yes.
This this whole crazy, stinking situation.
Yeah, So I mean, first of all, you gotta you gotta give credit, Toby J.
Because he has been getting crapped on quite a bit.
And you know another.
There's another pun right there.
Ah, by everybody by me, makers by fans of football And for good reason.
Because as a Ravens fan, I remember when that news about Earl Thomas came out with his brother and, ah, you know, means proceeded after that, of course, even though it wasn't the true story.
But, you know, regardless of if it's true or not, it's obviously funny.
It's hilarious because I mean, it is it's a little funny, but you know, it is his business, and I think that this will eventually go away.
You know, I think it will be remembered, but it's it's really just it's It's a mean right. It's a joke.
It is what it is.
If it's true, I I'm happy for a man.
Now he's a man that knows what he likes.
So all power to you man, because the human mind is a fascinating thing.
And ah, that's that's really all I got to say about it.
B. J did the right thing by leaning into it.
Because what else are you going to do? You know what? Once that's out there, you kind of have to just accept it.
Men Do you know whether it's true or not? You just you gotta lean into it and you got to lead into the MIM.
So credit so BJ for that.
But ah, yeah, man, thats it's definitely interesting.
It's not something that I don't I could see myself doing, that's for sure.
Well, I mean, what he could do now is focus right? Bonus, even mawr and and use.
This is fuel to get himself to become what the Cleveland Browns actually traded for him to be is their number one receiver, because statistic wise, last year he was number two.
Yeah, number two.
Also, he plays for the Cleveland Browns.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Anyway, it's just all there's jokes to be made all everywhere.
Yeah, all over the place.
But it doesn't matter because, like I said, this is this is non news it is.
And we are two days, two days away from actual.
And this is what we're talking about protection what we are talking about.
You know why we're talking about this? Because there's so much movement on this on social media right now.
But I would like I'd love to talk about some actual NFL news.
Let's do it, man.
And yeah, okay, so in two days, the Kansas City Chiefs will be facing the Houston Texans.
And that's gonna be kind of Ah, you know, a replay of last year's playoff game, right where DeShaun Watson with that huge lead over them, and and then Bill O Brien did the whole fake punt thing and it just down rolled from there.
And Mahomes made a huge comeback, and they won the football game with Travis Kelsey.
Um, well, the guy who has won and this is kind of at you a little bit, Joe, uh, the guy who was who was drafted saying Years Mahomes and has one playoff games against good teams earn himself of really big contract.
And technically, it's bigger than Mahomes during that time period that the contract is hit.
Yep, that four years, averaging over $39 million a year.
Which is MAWR in that four years than what Patrick Mahomes makes during that time span.
Um, he's technically right now over the next four years, the highest paid quarterback in the NFL.
What do you think about that? E can definitely see it.
I can definitely see the reasoning behind it.
I think that the Sean Watson is a great quarterback.
I think he's very fun to watch.
I think that he always gives the Texans a chance to win.
Um, now, you know, you guys know how I feel, how we feel about the Texans organization and some of the decisions that they make, like giving Ah, their head coaching jug, their head coach, GM job and, ah, you know, things haven't really looked look bad.
Nice after you after the fact.
But it is what it is, man, you know, do Sean Watson.
I think that he deserves it.
He absolutely deserves it.
And I think it's interesting that what the main media ists tends to do is make this about that Prescott.
I don't know if you notice that at all.
Yeah, we're like, why Can't you just talk about to Sean Watson in the Texans without bringing it back and the Cowboys? But it's what they do.
They only want to appeal to those big market teams, right? They can ever discuss the Texans, but anywhere in the state.
Yeah, that's so crazy.
But yeah, I like this deal.
I think that it makes sense.
And I think it's interesting that it's only a four year deal because usually you would see at least a five year deal right for these quarterbacks.
So it's interesting that it's only a four year deal.
I don't know if that's the Shawn's way of saying like, you know, like I do like being here in Houston, but I don't know if I want to be here long term.
You know? I don't know if that's what he's saying with this.
Or maybe it's just that's just the way it broke, you know? Oh, it could Very.
I mean, that's what Jack wanted was a four year deal.
$40 million right? And Watson got that exact specific deal, right? So, uh, but to be fair, Watson does not have the team that Jack has around him.
So he's lifting this team on his own, especially now without Hopkins.
So he's got a lot more on the shoulders this year, a lot more to prove, so he's gonna have to earn that money big time.
The thing with the Shonda Oh, man, I feel like he will have to be transcendent because the Texans have just not done a good job of surrounding him with a talented team.
In my opinion, now the defense is still suspect for me.
I think the front line, the front defensive line in the front seven is solid, but I just don't trust that secondary.
And their secondary has been trash ever since, you know, even before they drafted the Sean Watson and that just does not look like it's going to change in the near future.
Um, the offense, you know, regardless of what you guys say, that you think it will be better without the Andre Hopkins.
I don't believe that on, and I think that they're going to suffer without him.
But we'll see men.
I think that dish on Watson, if he wants to, like, go all the way with the Texans, win a Super Bowl he's gonna have to be like that transcendent elite, top tier level quarterback, which I'm not saying he can't be, but he's going to need to be if he does want to win a Super Bowl.
All right, well, I'm gonna pause for just one moment before we move on from this subject.
Ah, want to think bubble boy 209 and bear to Jerry for joining Stream here on SportsCastr.
We have 70 people watching live right now.
I've just named two people off. Everybody is watching this.
Please make a profile hit that like and share to your favorite social media.
It just keeps growing.
This is the NFL time right now.
And this is news that you want to hear.
All right, so we're gonna move on to another former Houston Texan.
Mark, I got three stories in line.
All happened to do with former or current Houston Texan players.
Uh, this former Houston Texan who was traded earlier in the year by the before mentioned Bill O Brien to the Arizona Cardinals, signed himself, even though he still has three years left on his contract, right, And during that period, he's the ninth highest paid player in the NFL.
Onley Knife DeAndre Hopkins is only the ninth highest paid player, but he got a two year extension.
So that means that he will stay with the Arizona Cardinals for five years.
And that extension was monstrous.
27 a quarter million dollars a year for two house Wow, 54 a half million.
He makes him the highest paid non quarterback in the NFL.
But but to be fair, that extension was it starts in four years now.
So in four years, 27 a quarter million dollars a year may not be that big of a deal, right? You know, compared to what other wide receivers might be making struck.
Do you think that, Ah, that Arizona was smart paying him up front like this? I do, and it's because I have always been saying it, man, that I think DeAndre Hopkins is the best receiver in the league just because of his body of work and what he's been able to do with just absolute garbage at quarterback, throwing him the ball, and he's still able to put up over 1000 yards, right? I mean, before the show.
And let's not forget that the brother had Brock Osweiler throwing to him.
He also had guys like your guy.
Um, Brian Hoyer, I believe, was was throwing them for a while.
Matt Schaab, You know, after he was good.
Uh, so yet so for for to be able to put up over 1000 yard seasons and to be consistently producing I mean, it says a lot about the type of player you are.
So I love it, and I think that locking him up for Kyler Murray is absolutely a great decision that the Arizona Cardinals make, because the thing with DeAndre Hopkins is that he's not going to be.
I don't think he's gonna be forced the ball like a lot of you guys said with what Sean Watson was doing.
I don't think Keiler is going to do that, because Kyler Murray has other options on that Cardinals often so, And I think he has a lot of young receivers that can grow up with DeAndre Hopkins as that veteran leader.
So I love the movement.
I know it's a lot of money but that's kind of, you know, you got a premium receiver.
You gotta pay premium dollar, so I'm all for it, man, I love it.
I think it's a great move for the Cardinals.
And, uh, you know, we'll have to see how they grow together.
DeAndre Hawkins negotiated this deal himself.
He does not have an age.
Really? Huh? I didn't know that.
Yeah, so that's good on him for being ableto have the smarts up here in the patients to actually do that while still not missing any time in training camp and stuff like that.
So, uh, props and I'm really proud of the gut.
Proud of the kid.
Glad he's out of the A F C South.
Speaking of being glad of being out of the A F C South, I thought that the A F C South was free of former Houston Texan Jadeveon Clowney.
He was in Seattle four year he was in for Seattle for a year, and then there was all kind of rumors about where he might end up.
Even my boy Joe New beau was like coming to the Ravens.
And then he signs with the Titans for one year, 15 million disgusting.
And how disgusting.
Man, that's actually makes that front seven kind of interesting.
I mean, it's Rabel.
It's a very good defensive coach.
And that front seven was already Saad s.
So, uh, I mean, obviously they lost.
Ah, big piece of that front seven, General Casey A D tackle.
But Clowney is a very good run stopper and can provide Rush because he's no longer.
He no longer has attained in the dirt.
He is a outside the left outside linebacker.
What do you think about this finding for the Titans? I absolutely hate it.
And I know I don't hate it because I don't think it's a good move.
I hate it because I think it's a great move.
Um, I just hate what the Titans are doing, man, I hate that.
It seems like the Titans are starting to become functional because I don't like the Titans.
I gotta be honest with you.
Maybe it's because I am still salty about what happened at the end of our season.
I can't lie to you.
I haven't gotten over it yet, But yeah, the Titans are looking pretty scary men, you know they don't they're cut.
They do kind of remind me a lot of the Ravens in that they don't necessarily have like a star player, per se.
But they have a group of really good guys that are really good at what they do and what they need.
The coach needs them to do.
And plus, when you have a good head coach like Mike Vrabel, this could make for a very good team.
Now what? The only thing that gives me pause on this team is that I want to see if Ryan Tannehill really is about that life.
You know, as we saw towards the end of last season, he was playing extremely well towards the end of last season.
I want to see if he can do that for a full 16 game season, because if he does, then this Titans team can be pretty darn scary men.
They have a good defense.
That offensive line is great, you know Derrick Henry, Of course, King Henry, that running game A.
Brown is a really good receiver, so they're starting to look like a very good solid A F C team and especially you adieu.
Davion clowning to the mix.
I mean, Boy, that run defense is scary and you know they're they're built.
They're pretty much one of the few teams in the league that are built to stop a team like the Ravens.
Right? So that's why they had so much success against us.
So, yeah, the Titans, they're looking scary.
Man, I can't lie to you now.
I want to bring up one player that we all seem to forget is on the Titans because he missed the last six games of the season, including the game against the Ravens.
They have a wide receiver outside of A J.
Brown That's actually pretty darn good when he's healthy.
Adam Humphreys is ahead of a slot receiver, right? And and most of Ryan Tannehill's time starting at quarterback for the Titans.
He did not have a healthy Adam Mumford's, so that could make him even more dangerous because he loves that quick pass.
And that's right.
Uh, Adam Humphreys is, you know, right wheelhouse.
So the Titans could be a dangerous team.
So, as a Colts fan, How do you feel, men? See, I don't know how you feel about your division.
I don't know if you're feeling comfortable that you can win it or if you feel it's gonna be like a three way battle till the ends, which is something I could see happening.
I think the team that is, um right now is is the toughest against the Colts will probably be the Titans because they are good all the way around.
I mean, they got a decent secondary.
They got a good front seven.
We got good coaching.
They got a strong run game.
And according to what we saw at the end of the regular season, I'm not talking about the postseason postseason.
It was all about Derrick Henry.
It was obvious it was all about Derrick Henry.
That was their game plan Friday.
Eric Henry tried to ride Garrick Henry to the Super Bowl, right, But during the regular season, as he got more more comfortable, you could tell that Ryan Tannehill was playing incredibly well as you was saying.
So I believe they have, Ah, a very functional, semi balanced offense and a very solid, fundamentally sound defense.
Um, so I think that that makes them the biggest danger to the A F C South to the Colts.
Um, the Texas I feel like they are a firework show.
I look at their team, I see good pass rush, and I see a heck of a passing game that could happen with them.
Eso it's It's all fireworks, but no meat and potatoes to go with it.
You know what I mean? So they could win games in a lot of shootouts.
They very well could.
But I just feel a So the Colts have that team that is built to be a fireworks type team like Kansas City, so to speak, You know, um, and, of course, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yeah.
Don't even consider that if they went to games, they could get a little trophy and put it on the show.
Theme tanks in ville? Yeah, tank wires is what we should call him.
Even even though if you go talk to a lot of Jacksonville fans, they still are 100% absolutely sure that even though they're seven and five point underdogs to the court's going to their house.
Yeah, they're still gonna be Indianapolis on one, Of course.
Uh, so that covers the news that I had covered.
How about the news that you wanted to cover today, Joe? Well, sure.
I mean, it's I still can't believe that we're actually going to get actual football this weekend.
Man, I am so excited.
You can't believe how excited I am and how meaningless my life has felt without football.
So I'm extremely excited to get started, man, but ah, yeah.
Um, you know, if if we could, I guess we could talk about our own teams as we tend to do, um, at this point of the stream.
So Ravens news, uh, you know, nothing really shocking.
We did release our first official depth chart.
I don't know if the Colts did that as well.
Um, but the other things that shocked me were that we only kept to tight ends.
And I don't know if we're going into the season with only two tight ends.
I don't know if we're gonna see another tight end, but it's definitely weird that we decided to just keep Matt, Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle.
You know, I was expecting for us to keep one of the undrafted tight ends that we had picked up.
It was either Eli Wolf for Charles Scarf, I believe, was their names, and we just didn't.
So it's It's weird.
I've heard that they're thinking about putting Pat Ricard are fullback slash defensive tackle to play tight end as well.
He's gonna play that third tight end spot.
That's what I'm hearing.
I hope we signed some other tight end because you know, death.
But it's definitely weird.
That was something that was weird to me that we decided to only role with two tight ends.
Didn't the Ravens play a lot of three tight insects? Last we did, we did.
So that's why that's another reason that it was so weird to me that we just decided to keep the two.
So, um, Colts only have five cornerbacks on their roster.
Yeah, I have five, Which is which is odd, because I mean, if you if you have any injuries, it's going to be difficult to come up with the nickel.
All right? I'm a dime.
Formation would be awful toe pick up if you've got injuries on your defensive backs position.
So that's true that we have between our front, we have four front seven.
The Indianapolis Colts has 18 players on the defensive front, seven on the three man roster.
Sheesh and only seven offensive linemen to seven.
So they're really just saying, Oh, they're going to stay healthy.
Well, I mean, no one got hurt.
No one missed the game last year on the water, but But I would still be correct.
To be fair, there's three offensive linemen on the practice squad, Okay? So they could just bring him up.
Yeah, we kept nine, which is usually around how much we keep.
I think last year we came in with eight.
Um, but what's interesting is we don't really have a backup tackle.
We just don't We apparently are rookie, um, guard that we drafted in the third round, is not only the back of right guard but is also the back of swing tackle is either side, So I've heard he's good.
I hope he is his Tyree Phillips, so we'll see.
But it looks like D.
Fluker is going to be taking over for Marshall Yanda's starting spot there.
So, um yeah, that's that's pretty much it.
And also also, a bunch of people were freaking out like fantasy.
Players were freaking out that J. K.
Dobbins was listed as fourth on the depth chart behind Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards, Injustice Hill.
But I think that's just It doesn't mean anything J. K.
Dobbins is going to get it.
Such is I don't think it matters, you know, So but yeah, that's that's pretty much it, but yeah, the too tight end thing, men.
That kind of shocked me.
Um, the Colts got a little bit of a shock in the fact that Chase McLaughlin was basically reported to be winning training camp.
And the Indianapolis Colts went with Hot Rod Rego Blankinship Rodrigo.
So didn't they draft him? Undrafted free agent are and drafted with Now? A lot of people didn't think that we were going to keep an undrafted free agent, but because we picked and kept Rodrigo, that's now 22 straight years of the Indianapolis Colts have have signed on to their 53 man roster.
An undrafted free agent.
It kept the streak alive.
Yeah, I all means by all, you know, install odds.
Yeah, we didn't sign one surprisingly used the Ravens.
I don't know what their streak was, but they also had a pretty long streak of signing undrafted free agents. And we didn't.
So it was gonna happen.
Well, to be fair, to be fair, uh, didn't expect a lot of it due to the cove in 19 situation.
Not a lot of preseason games and stuff like that.
But if you don't sign an undrafted free agent, doesn't that same or about how much depth you have on your team? Yeah.
I mean, I got that tells you you got a good, deep team.
And when the Colts there only under after free agent, they bake with a kicker, even finish.
Yeah, that says that says something about their depth to So that's a good point.
I guess this might be one of those few years that you don't really want to bring it in a draft player, because then that means that you're not really sure of the guys you already have on your roster.
So that's a good point.
Um, the other piece of news we could cover is Von Miller.
No, I don't know how season.
Apparently he had a little bit of an ankle thing.
Let me see if there's any updates on that.
Actually, I just saw something and everybody was so scared that Von Miller, you know, did a covert.
You know, he's got asthma.
Had he contracted the Cove in 19 virus earlier in the season, got over it.
Everybody breathed a sigh of relief that he would actually be able to play the season.
And now he's gone.
Yep, yes, that's awful. Less time.
Terrible roller coaster to go through in the off season.
If you're a Broncos fan, No man, just I can't even imagine.
I can't even imagine so.
Yeah, it looks like it's pretty much all but confirmed that Von Miller is going to be out all season.
So another interesting tweet that NFL up they put out is that in the Chiefs Division in the A F C West, the Chargers lost Derwin James.
The Broncos lost Von Miller and the Raiders lost Tyrell Williams.
Now Tyrell Williams isn't that big of a deal, but still, I'm in wide receiver, still a decent one, So yeah, yeah, so that's it's crazy.
The rich get richer, right? But how does this affect the Broncos? Do you think, man? Do you? Are you a little less high on them? Because I know you're pretty high on these Broncos.
Um, von Miller is solid now.
Last year, the Denver defense was still very solid, right? Very, very good.
And von Miller had a very down year.
I think it only had, like, eight knapsacks.
In That's a super down here.
Yeah, that is Ah, that is a very big down year for him.
And you got to remember.
I mean, they still got what Chub and a few other guys on that defense.
They still got a defense, even without Von Miller.
So, um, I don't Obviously losing Von Miller is not going to effect your offense so much.
Um, but defensively, I think they'll still will. Still do.
Well, obviously you can't replace Von Miller.
But, um, as a good possibility, maybe.
Ah, after he had the surgery and he starts to feel a little bit better, he'll probably be on the sidelines with him coaching up.
You know, whatever linebackers air out there that are, you know, pass rushing and stuff, So I mean, you see that all the time, but I don't think it's going to affect them that much.
One player on the defense, especially as a pass rusher.
If he was on his game last year, they might have went a lot further than what they did.
They might have made the playoffs because you've seen what he could do when he's on his game.
He takes games over right now.
He wasn't on his game at all last year and yet, and yet the defense will still solid.
So yeah, yeah, I don't see much of a much of a difference.
And it's kind of weird.
Like you said, all three of those teams losing people and then the Kansas City Chiefs or printing their own crash.
Yeah, yeah, the rich get richer, man.
It's It's the fact of life.
Yeah, so I think you already covered this one, but I we didn't get to talk about it.
But apparently true, Boesky is going to be the starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears, and I was actually watching.
I think it was calling Cowherd if I'm not mistaken.
And usually I don't really agree with him all the time.
But he said something about the g m.
I believe his name is Ryan.
Pace for the Bears is just kind of like he's not accepting that he took the l and drafting Mitch Strabinsky.
He's not accepting that.
Maybe it was that.
Not that good of a pick.
Do you agree with that? Or do you think that they should still give true Boesky a shot? You know, See, maybe this is his last year.
What? What do you What are your thoughts on this? All right, I'm going to give you two reasons.
Why I think the Bears are starting Travis Key over fools.
Okay, Number one.
Boesky understands the playbook. 110%.
He hasn't had only a month toe work with players and coaches and stuff on the field to work with the playbook.
He's known it for years.
Okay, so he knows his players.
It's on the on the field.
He he's probably got their, you know, their speed down.
And you know, all that s so I think that I think he understands and can execute better than what fools can at this point in time.
The second is the fact that the Chicago Bears offensive line is horrible.
E yeah, true, horrible.
Your only reason Mr Boesky had much success at all is because of his mobility.
He's able to get the heck out of there if he needs to write.
And Nick Foles is not known existentially unique.
He's not known for moving, and I'm telling you, the Bears, I look at it.
I was watching film.
That offensive line is God awful.
I don't know how Montgomery had positive yards running the football last year.
Uh, but no, Um, yeah, so that's two reasons.
One, he knows the playbook.
He understands, you know, the team and the fact that his mobility will play in plus early on due to the fact that got a battle offensive line.
Now this isn't to say that maybe later, on a month or so after pulls this kind of got his his ah, his bearings down and starts to understand the playbook a lot more, understands the players around him and get a little bit of a feel for him that maybe if there if the bears are having a bad time of it, they might flip over the Bulls.
That's quite possible.
But I'm not going to shoot the bears, uh, for starting Robiskie because, uh, yeah, in the current situation, it just might be the better choice.
Yeah, I think you're right.
I think that's it.
That's definitely a good point, really.
The Bears just kind of screwed themselves men with their quarterback selections.
It's, you know, they put themselves into that situation.
So, uh, you know, it is what it is.
I feel bad for the Bears because I think that their defense is awesome.
I love watching their defense play, but, you know, they're just held back there.
Just so held back by that that offense, man.
And it seems like it's always been like that.
The Bears, you know, like the Ravens were that we just had a bad offense and a great defense.
So that's Yeah, I feel bad for it.
You feel bad for them? Yeah.
For in order for a quarterback to succeed behind that offensive line, you would need ah, dish on Watson or a Patrick Mahomes.
You know, I mean, honestly, it's just flat fact.
You would need a quarterback of that caliber of, uh uh shockingly good ability to avoid the pass rush, extend the play and find someone downfield in order for that team to succeed.
Okay, so do you think let's say that the Bears actually did something right and put a very solid offensive line like, say, say, the Bears had the Colts offensive line? Do you think Robiskie would actually be able to succeed? I think fools will do better off of Travis Key with the Colts.
Sure, I think it'll meal how I'm Yeah, I'm not saying that Travis Keys terrible.
He, um I think he's forced to make decisions too fast.
Yeah, OK, And you've seen that a lot last year where he's he's trying to make a decision way too quick because he understands there is no three second clock for that offensive line.
It's a hike, the ball and hot potato and throw Teoh.
So, yeah, obviously you put a good offensive line in front of any any quarterback, even a backup quarterback.
They should do well unless your name is, um ah, crap.
I hate him so much that I took him out of my head, uh, for for the colts that last year.
Now he's on the Patriots against your whole your cake right now.
I got his name back in my day, but yeah, there's I think Travis Key would do better if the Bears would have really focused on improving that all offensive line.
E yeah, yeah, but I just don't think that they're going to do that.
You know, I think that they're gonna kind of throw it all on true Biscay this year.
And he's probably not going to succeed because, like you said, the offensive line is pretty bad and, you know, they have okay weapons, but nothing special.
So, you know, Travis Key is not only not very good, but he's also in a very bad situation.
So that's a recipe for disaster, if you ask me.
So it is. It's a terrible recipe.
Oh, my goodness.
I don't know whose works at building a team right now, because, I mean, at least O'Brien is trying to give Watson ah, better offensive line.
He's been putting guys to get drafted, someone that traded for someone that attended him.
You know, it s so he's at least trying to help Watson out now.
And I get it now.
They did draft, um, Cody White here.
Is his name, Uh, two years? About two years back, I believe.
Um, so he's decent, but the rest of the line is kind of crap.
Building offensive line.
That's where your dress where your offense actually handles itself.
Any one of us who cover a team that's worth a **** will tell you that.
You know, the trenches.
Maybe the trenches filled the trenches.
That's where the offensive line starts.
Mahomes over in Kansas City.
He's got a couple or he's had a couple tackles.
His insides not that good, you know, is yards of centers weren't that good, but he was able to be protected from the blind side.
So, you know, he was able to move around a little bit, even that, you know, And you re knew how to work around that.
So, yeah, I get that all offensive line.
So, um, I believe it was good morning football where our guy, I think it was Kyle Brand.
If I'm not mistaken.
Neither of our teams to make the playoffs this year.
and I thought that was a very hot take.
I thought that was very interesting.
Um, and But I think the biggest problem that I had with it was not that the Ravens were in making the playoffs, but that he had the Steelers winning the division and you guys, you already know my feeling about this year.
I am not very high on them.
I actually said that I would not be surprised if they end up fourth in the division.
I don't know if that's a little bit of a hot take or not, but I think more of a hot take is saying the Steelers win the division and the Ravens missed the playoffs entirely.
That's I just don't see that and same thing with the Colts.
I think the Colts are gonna be a very good team this year.
I mean, the culture in a tough division, get that and and I know Ah, the Ravens division is solid, especially with the Browns there.
I'm not putting the Bengals anywhere around going to the playoffs.
I know there are a couple people out there that said that the Biggles might make the playoffs this year. And I just kind of rose.
My brown say Hugh Bengal history.
Um but I understand the divisions are tough, and I understand that the Colts don't have Andrew Luck and that Philip Rivers threw 20 interceptions behind.
Ah, an offensive line.
That was like Swiss cheese.
Yeah, but you suit.
I mean, come on, guys.
You've got to actually look at statistics and film and stuff like, don't just throw out click bait for the fun of it.
Okay? I mean, cheesy.
That's why they do it nowadays.
Because, you know, you gotta get those views, man.
Gotta get flicks.
Yeah, Gotta get the ratings.
So what if your opinion is being trashed all over the Internet because of that? Stupid.
I even get trashed on once in a while, and I feel like I'm being reasonable now.
I have a few hot takes myself, you know, like saying that there's a lot of people out there to say Atlanta might make the playoffs this year.
And I'm like, I think Atlanta will have the worst.
The bottom seed of on it.
See the NFC? Yeah.
So But I can't At least I have a reasoning for it, you know, because their division are their schedules.
But, um, I don't I just I don't just say things for clicks.
You know, I sit here, and I I watch hours of film.
I go through all the statistics.
I kind of go through the games in my head as I looked at the schedule, you know, and try to figure things out.
These guys were just saying it for the fun of it.
Yeah, I call car brand.
My God, you're gonna tell me that the Raymond's don't even make the playoffs? Yeah, that's that's crazy.
Only way that happens is that John Harbaugh runs into Lamar Jackson and they're both on our thin.
The entire starting defense would have.
You know, I mean, come on.
Yeah, that was definitely crazy.
Nobody, like you said, I think it's definitely just to get, you know, the clout.
That's what it's all about, men.
I'm pretty sure the producers air like we got to say some crazy stuff just so we can get some eyes back on our show.
So let's let's let's go out there, make some crazy some crazy takes.
It is all kind of crazy takes.
I mean, it's just like, you know, the whole Odell Beckham Jr thing on that podcast.
It was all about getting the clicks, of course.
And they knew if they knew what they were doing.
But, hey, you know of all power to the men, just I feel bad for your wallet.
Odell Beckham's like I'm suing a defamation you and that That's a good point.
I mean, it's not like he be doing it for money, but it's to take him off the air.
Yeah, you could.
Yeah, you could definitely like he needs money.
So what are your thoughts on Kaepernick? Okay, so Kaepernick is an 81 overall on Madden.
We're gonna start with that story. Yep.
What do you think about? I believe he was over quarterbacks like Cam Newton.
I believe he was over Jared Goff.
There was a bunch of starting quarterbacks that they raided Colin Kaepernick over.
Um, listen, I understand what they're doing here. I get it.
But I just don't think that this is the right way to do things.
In my opinion, I don't believe that I get the message you're trying to send NFL or e A or whoever decided all this right I get.
I totally understand it, but again, I just don't think it's the right thing to do.
I just absolutely don't think it's the right thing to do because you're supposed to be a simulation football game, right? You're supposed to be simulated because it's supposed to be what I'm watching on TV.
I want to be able to just turn on my game system, and that's what it is.
But obviously A has shown that it's just not like that.
They do their own whatever they want to do, and this is it's a crazy rating.
It doesn't make any sense, but I see why Madden is doing it, and I just don't agree with it.
But I don't know anybody that's actually been happy with it.
I haven't seen anybody on Twitter say, Oh, good, good on you e a good on you, Madden forgiving Colin Kaepernick and 81 overall.
I think it's done, but it is what it is.
You know it really in the long run, it doesn't affect anybody ends.
It's just a weird little thing that they decided to do.
I mean, he is a free agent, so I mean, him happening in the game is legit is just 81 is a little high.
It is very Especially when you have all pro linebacker Darius Leonard listed as an 85.
Yeah, you know, and and in his prime.
So that it makes no sense.
Yeah, it's true.
The other Colin Kaepernick news that I uncovered today, Actually, my wife came to me and told me about it.
I had to look it up because she's in the whole the politics thing.
I'm not. I try to stay out of that.
Yeah, but ah, I guess in her little circle that came up.
Karl and Kaepernick has been nominated for the NFL whole fame.
See? So where do you see this? Because I'm looking for that.
I just don't find it. Let me see.
Yeah, all I'm seeing is Madden.
What's what's Is there a cider something or Hold on.
Ah! Oh, here. Okay.
Fan tries to do right by Colin Kaepernick with Hall of Pain.
USA Today fan tries to do right by calling Cap Ernie with Hall of Fame nomination.
Colin Kaepernick note is nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
And that was days.
That was six days ago.
Who was news? It just I just found out and it's been six days.
Yeah, I wonder, why would This wasn't bigger.
You would think you would see this all over Twitter, you know, Um, but look, look, I get why you're doing that.
But the Hall of Fame is for people who have done actual on the field stuff over a course of their career, and there's no telling what Colin Kaepernick would have done throughout his career.
That's like saying, Well of Sean Taylor was shot and killed, you know, he might make the hall of thing, but you can't go by that right? You can't go by that now if you want to nominate him for Man of the Year by all maids nominated for Man of the Year.
I mean, it would be San Francisco toe have to do it, I think.
But I mean they want to do it by all means.
I think that's a great idea, but but t even say that he should be in the hall of pain because of this situation, in my opinion, is not a good look.
It would it would.
Look, um, if the NFL of allowed this and it went through, I think that the NFL would look like they're, ah, just bowing to the public rather than going by their own rules and regulations.
Right, Because, I mean, let's just face it, uh, Capitanich his last year was not that good.
Okay? He wasn't He was banned that rookie year.
His was absolutely fantastic.
I'm not gonna lie. He was fantastic.
His rookie year.
Especially running the football a little Omar Jackson.
Just about, you know, running the running around.
He was He was dangerous, dangerous, But he fell off.
Bad is last year, and there's no telling what he looks like now.
Yeah, and I mean, he's had a couple couple hits.
I think he's had a couple interviews.
I think two teams have interviewed him for ah spots, but no one find him yet.
So, um yeah, so I'm kind of like skimming over this and reading this, that it seems like it's just one guy That's like, Oh, let me do this because I want to feel like, you know, it's kind of I don't know that that like, Oh, I want a statement but a nomination still a nomination and it can lead to conversation, which could lead to If you don't do this, you're racist, you know, stuff like I mean, it's true.
You know it very well.
There's a lot of stuff that's running around right now.
You know where people are saying, If you, uh I'm sure you've seen where a lot of people are like standing in front of other people saying you have tow donate your home to ah four White Group because or your racist, you know, because of your white privilege type stuff.
And I'm I don't want something like this to turn bad.
Okay, I really don't I don't want to turn bad.
I I like the NFL and, uh, what happened to call on Kaepernick suck? I hate the fact that he was blackballed.
I would have liked to have seen him be able to play.
Uhm maybe maybe get back to where he was before, But at this point in his career, I mean, he's He's in his thirties now, you know? And his.
His whole game was about his legs.
So it's not like he was a fantastic thrower in the pocket, right? And and And at this point in time in his career, that's where his game would be, would be in the pocket.
Yes, he'd be able to still move around and extend plays like Vic did when he was, you know, when he got out of jail.
Um, but I just come on.
Yeah, I can see what you're saying, but I just feel like the NFL can take this seriously, man.
It's just because then nobody's gonna take the Hall of Fame seriously anymore.
I mean, there's already people questioning the little bit.
Right? Um, as as you probably know, I think we talked about it before that I don't believe Eli Manning should be a Hall of Famer.
I think he will be, But I wouldn't put him in there.
So there's different.
I mean, it's just it's it's different people having different ideas about who deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, for whatever reason, Um, like when they put I think Terrell Davis in there.
I didn't necessarily agree with that.
I thought he was a great player, but he only played five years.
Like I think you have to have that longevity as well.
And you have to be good for a long period of time.
So that's how I see it.
Or break serious record going and four time, right? Exactly.
So, yeah, I don't know.
I think the Hall of Fame has just been, you know, at this point, maybe at some point, they're just gonna be, like, just throw every everybody that's ever touched a football in there, right? I mean, I can see e wide making it.
He's got two Super Bowls.
And then there's the Asterix of you kept two Super Bowl, two Super Bowl rings off of Tom ready to change? It s Oh, really? Yeah, he'll be.
He'll be known more for ending the undefeated streak than winning two Super Bowls, I think.
Yeah, Yeah, that And that's why there is a case, I think.
But just because of those two Super Bowls and for defeating the undefeated Patriots, so yeah, I can totally see why there is a case for Eli, but I believe.
You know, he was good those two years, and then, aside from that, he was just an average quarterback.
But he has the Manning last name.
He has the two Super Bowl wins.
He has the longevity, so I think he will get it.
Hey, probably will.
But there's a lot of other people that deserve it before him.
He's not a first ballot Hall of Famer by any means, you would think by any means, but who? It's kind of like Reggie Wayne, right? Reggie Wayne has a Super Bowl ring.
He's got, you know, a lot of good numbers, you know, and stuff.
Like he'll make the Hall of Fame at some point.
But But by no means is he going to be a first ballot Hall of Famer.
