Yeah, like it was a lot of like what you were saying, Z.
You know, the Steelers look pretty good, I think the Giants, I think I think the Giants daily.
I think that's what kind of what you expected from the Giants is here.
I don't think anybody expected him to be too good.
If they play a perfect game, they might be able to beat some teams that they shouldn't.
But they didn't play for everyone.
Obviously, Daniel Jones had that horrible interception.
Yeah. I mean, that's the one you had.
Yeah, And that ****ed punt where they only got a field goal out of it.
Like that's just that's just they.
So they have to feel go out of al, you know, it was they gotta play perfect.
Pretty much thio meet people.
But, you know, it was it was, you know, kind of what we all expected, I think smashed up before we all had Steelers running this game.
So it was correct.
Once again, I will say from a from a broadcasting standpoint, I'm impressed that Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Fowler were ableto fill in and be perfect like this is part of the best Monday night broadcast game I've seen since Jon Gruden was there.
Like, I really love the main team that is now going to be a Luis Rid****.
Steve Levy. Itand Brian.
Yeah, and you know your history.
Yeah, respected those three, but when you needed a fill in guy herbs perfect, they look like they didn't miss a beat in it.
It kind of reminds me of a college football.
Feel a little bit because, you know, Saturday night, whenever you get those big games, you always think of Herb Street and Fowler.
And when they called me at a football game, they didn't seem like them.
It's the beats like they knew their stuff.
They made great calls.
They looked like it was a natural thing.
You know, it was great to see.
Uh, okay, Monday night game.
Obviously, I wish they had better teams in my opinion.
Pittsburgh, New York, Tennessee, Denver.
I think it could have done a little better there.
Like I feel like if you switch Minnesota and Green Bay with Tampa and New Orleans, you have that as your to Monday night games.
Everybody's tuning into those games.
Pittsburgh, New York, Pittsburgh in New York.
You kind of tune in those games.
Maybe the first half.
But then the second half, when when Pittsburgh it's a big lead is like, Okay, we could turn it off.
Are you Michael? Come on.
How does it work to 9 30 way Giants played Chicago next week.
I think, obviously Chicago wins this game way.
Think Giants get.
Chicago could very well lose that game, too.
If true whiskey has a bad game, it could very well lose that game as well.
Listen, one thing, though, I really did like what I saw today.
He made a couple of throws.
You made a couple throws that were impressed on him.
You obviously, like I said, a one intersection.
Yeah, he's He's made some nice throws.
Call him Danny Dimes for a reason because when he could get the throw, he could get the throw.
I do like him in slaying connection.
That's the key with the quarterback.
You always wanna have a good connection with your receiver.
Heaven slight and look like they're gonna be having a good connection for for a long time.
As good as Denny Dumbs was on some of his passes, that offensive line has to do something.
You have to have Barkley averaging more than a half a yard toe win a game.
You know you have Barkley almost average 100 yards of game to have a chance, Thio.
It's gotta be that.
Let's go ahead, move to her last game of Monday Night Football.
Talk about the Rams and the Cowboys, or are we just going to skip over that? I really don't want to talk about them losing, but we could go ahead and do that way.
You know what, Michael? Since since you are a Cowboys fan, I want to get your thoughts first hand.
Do you believe it was the same old Dallas Cowboys, or do you think the Rams was played a good game? A little perspective.
I'm gonna say this.
I think it's a little of both, but I definitely think the Cowboys look like last year Cowboys with Jason Garrett.
Uh, we didn't get the ball out very well out of Dax hands.
I would like to see that move a little bit.
I think we try to make him a pocket passer in this new era, your quarterbacks run out song Deck is obviously capable of that.
But yet we're still staying in this 19 nineties offense, and I just I just feel like with the team that we have, which would be scoring Mawr.
What do we score? I think it was like 2017.
So 17 Worse, even worse.
So I mean, if you got Zeke Elliot and you have Cooper and you have Gallup who I think is a very good and lamb now, which we don't know what to expect from him because he was a rookie, but got was a top.
I want to say 15 fantasy easily last year, and that's me trying to move it back some just to make sure I'm not lying.
So how do you have that offense with that good offensive line and only scored 17 points? Even if it is the realms who had a good defense that played very well back against that? Yeah, and it totally was an Oscar for that pass interference offensive pass interference.
We all know, you know, Listen, that wasn't always much as anybody but That was awful. Call.
Terrible, Yes, and, like, kind of reminds me of the George Kittle call in suitable 54.
You just gotta look, um, play, especially with that kind of like, if Gallup makes that catch, cowboys go in, maybe Mr Game time field goal and it's a different ball game.
Oh, yeah, but like, no, you want to talk about field goals? I want your thoughts on.
Why do you don't take the points when it was 22 17 on the fourth and three.
Yeah, I felt like that for three of the goal line.
I was genuinely shocked.
That's the classic McCarthy move.
I saw that all last year.
Last two years in Green Bay.
He'd always made E.
I'll never forget.
Week 11 2018 Thursday Night Football.
We're down against the Seattle Seahawks, fourth and inches with four minutes left in the game.
Our defense, of course, is trash.
What we do on 14 inches, we have a VP quarterback.
All you gotta do, pass it out for the first time, you extend again.
What do you just know? Let's put it, let's trust our trash defense to stop Russell Wilson.
You know what happens.
We don't pause way lose Jamie que me And why? Thank you for the follow.
I do appreciate that.
Go follow these guys as well. Cool cats.
Yeah, it's just classic McCarthy.
He took the year off.
We thought he would change, but it kind of looks like the same old Mike McCarthy in the past, but just like creativity.
I mean, you have all these weapons, you only scored 17 points.
That zero excuses.
I mean, you also got to get credit. The Rams defense.
I mean, that Rams defense. Jalen Ramsey.
He looks rejuvenated.
Did you see Aaron? Donald put on a clinic on that offensive line and how he just hold those e He basically picked him up and threw him to the side like it was a rag doll.
That there is a monster? Yeah, he is a different breed like that.
That there's a monster.
I heard he even trained a but yeah. Sorry. Sorry.
I I kinda I kinda interrupt a little bit.
I just thought it was a classic McCarthy movie.
Oh, no, I'd rather you know, E Come on, Michael, You give me that same same treatment would have lost the Minnesota E.
I don't know if I'm gonna be able to be on that Thursday night or Sunday night.
Recap when, uh, Patriots see officers.
Hey, don't don't don't don't sleep on New England.
They might keep it an interesting game.
Now, do I think they want the game go e They might e think they lose by 17.
I'd say I'd say 10.
I'd say either 10 or seven point.
I don't know if that's my lack of faith in the Patriots defense against good teams like they got exposed last year.
Or just how much I love Russell Wilson.
Floyd, you couldn't go wrong right away.
Russell Wilson. He looked great against Atlanta.
Defense was okay.
I mean, yeah, I mean, I'm not a Patriots fan, so I don't really follow them.
Well, Connie, your die hard pass fan.
So you probably know that all the ins and outs and everything, so I'll just go with your point on whenever they play good teams, air defense kinda shrinks up a little bit.
I just I just want to see if even looking compete with good teams even looking at the Dallas Cowboys stats and that I mean, Dak Prescott, 25 or 39 that's I mean, I'd like to see a little more completion on that, but I mean, that's not that bad.
No interceptions, one touchdown Z 22 carries for 96 yards.
I mean, that's great.
10 receptions, 81 yards.
Gallop only had three receptions, but he had only five targets.
Lamb had six targets.
Five receptions of 59 yards.
I mean, and there's at least looking at this off the top, my head.
Just gonna guess.
I mean at least eight or nine people that he threw, too.
Um, gonna see here you're adac believer when you got to be, Michael has to be walked in.
Actually, Honestly, I have said this to this year.
I think Andy Dalton could come viruses too much and do girl, I honestly think Andy Dalton would be great on their team.
I really do with the weapons.
I mean, look what Andy Dalton has done at the Cincinnati Bungles, and all he had was a playoff and he was good.
So I mean, I would be fine with Andy Dalton back and or stepping in there and deck if that got hurt.
I mean, I don't wish you to be hurt, but Dak is a great leader.
I will never say anything bad about Deck, but I'm okay if something happens 10 and 21 in the in the fourth or second half or something like that, though, that's not That's not what you want to agree.
That's not a quarterback that wants 40 year. I'm gonna tell you that.
My problem is he just doesn't play good against teams. About 500.
Well, no, there doesn't Dallas Cowboys? Yeah, and they're also won one in seven and one score games dating back Stephen A.
Smith says What can go wrong, wrong, wrong and and also an accident waiting to happen.
And I will say this, though we're still gonna win the Super Bowl.
Still, we Oh, listen, if I'm a Dallas Cowboy fan, it's every year.
It's every year, you know, three year, every year, third year.
Hey, we still have a chance.
We go down to save one of the playoffs.
About 17 will make the Playhouse.
Maybe that'll be 11 and five to make it.
Well, at least we can win in addition automatically be in.
So we're good because, hey, that Washington football team, though e watch out without watching E.
This is how I know this is how I know 2020 doesn't make sense because the Washington football team and Jacksonville Jaguars are currently first in their division.
Wow, I don't want to know.
I'm done predicting things.
I'm done predicting if if Washington no name mascot wins the East.
Yeah, and your division handing in my sports talk card, I will never see sports.
And also also the NFC East used to change the NFC least if they let no name team when the division, they will forever.
Don't you put that on us.
Are you gonna let a team with no name when the division the same way we lose every game, The way that we let roll Moat hold the ball for the extra point to win the game and fumble it a couple of young? I always He's a young guy.
Young players make mistakes.
It just happened to this in the playoffs.
All you do is catch it and set it down.
Hey, if you A If you ever listen, Thio, if you ever listen to Pat Pat McAfee there's a whole operation snap.
You got a communication, You hold it well, and obviously, you know, he almost he almost ran it in, like people forget.
Yeah, if that guy doesn't make a crackle, he could have made it.
He could have saved himself, but, yes, but he didn't.
At least he didn't.
What was it but fumble like, uh, e think, I think when? When? When Romo did the **** **** hold.
I think that kick started the Seahawks issue about 40.
I think I think I was the same year.
Seattle made it to 40.
Because I think so, Yeah.
So we basically super No, that was when they rigged it for Jerome Bettis and the Steelers.
Because they Oh, yeah, e.
I'm saying Oh, yeah, but I'm not agreeing with the rig.
Well, no, it actually was true.
Like they were like bad calls made because Jerome Bettis was in his final season at home and his hometown in Detroit.
They're basically Ben was down at the one yard line and they called it a touchdown.
And then there was a P I, and they didn't call it.
Seattle didn't win that game.
That was Matt Hasselbeck's prime moment, you know, because back then, household back was a good quarterback in Seattle.
Obviously, a lot of people look at it is near the end years when he had to fill in for Indy when Andrew Luck just kept on getting banged up.
He was a decent quarterback in Seattle.
He was actually the quarter before.
He was actually the quarterback before Russell Wilson.
So for all you Seahawk fans out there, if you need a bandwagon, test the quarterback before Russell Wilson.
And he is also the same guy that said, We want the ball and we're going to score.
You know what happens there? The rest is history throws a pick six.
Okay, let's go with the last game.
Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans.
Tennessee wins 16 to 14 on a Monday Night football game.
Connie, did you watch it or where's you bored out of your mind? Going to sleep? Oh, no, I was bored at my mind, but I did watch it all the way through.
That's just only because of football in sports.
So, uh, yeah, I watch.
I watch anything I can I can get my hands on. Bert.
That was definitely not the most entertaining game of of the slate for the for week one.
I mean, I don't know what in the hell happens.
Just even Paszkowski, because I remember him.
Prime Patriot years.
He might have missed three field goals in two seasons.
He missed three field goals.
Point like I mean, God, it was just bad.
I mean, And then, you know, it was kind of what we what I expected I thought would be a lot I thought would be higher scoring.
Honestly, because how many pieces the Broncos off on defense, how many pieces they gained on offense.
I didn't know that defense is still good.
No matter what, you know, Like you said, the final score ended up being ended up being that and it was It was It was It was something.
Derrick Henry did what he did.
Ryan tend to help make the place when he had to do it and drew up, and the Broncos did you know, kind of what they did.
Jerry Judy had two big drops, though.
But, you know, they also went at full strength, being that court decided, or anything like that.
So we'll be fun to watch, you know, wait around the season, everybody's healthy and back for sure.
I kinda also agree with what you guys are saying.
I kind of switched before.
Before the season when I made pregame picks, I actually had Denver winning this game.
But because of the Von Miller injury, that was the obviously switch.
I had to go with Tennessee because the other option there, but I was very disappointed.
There was also a stat where Kostovski entered the game as the fifth most accurate kicker, and after that game he dropped all the way down to nine.
Well, he dropped all the way down tonight, and Kostovski single handedly kept the Broncos in that game because if he makes those three field goals in the extra point, that's 10 points.
It looks like it will be a block is that of being 16 to 14? It's 26 to 14 instead, so it's one of those where I'm in Tennessee.
It looked rough, but you also call where it is.
Vic Fangio terribly managed the clock at the end straight A terrible clock management.
I mean, you talk about not knowing a deer in headlights moment.
That's a deer in headlights moment.
I have no idea why Vic Fangio would hold his time out until it was too late.
He basically waited until it was like 16 seconds to call a time out.
It's not like you have Aaron Rodgers.
Mahomes Air Wilson in the backfield.
You got a second year quarterback? Andrew Lock.
What do you expect them to do? Pull John Elway out of his ass and be all magic? Mike one.
Place Ling in field goal range.
No, that's just not what you lock is at the moment.
He's the second year quarterback.
What they should have done is utilize their time outs more wisely and give you lock more of a chance.
And they didn't do that and, you know, from the first play on and even near the end, when they try to run a Hail Mary walk was just pressure.
There was no offensive line, health and the way How the game And it was bad.
It just drew lock.
Just just heave it and see what happens and barely got three yards drop.
It looks Monday.
The Monday night football games were okay.
Uh, definitely wasn't the best late of Monday Night football games.
I mean, the doubleheaders last year were great.
I mean, when the Texans and Saints went back and forth, that was a good game to watch.
And then when the Broncos played the Raiders, the final Monday night game in Oakland, those were good.
Obviously, I hope the Monday night Games get better, you know, throughout the season, which I think it will, you know, especially week four when then Packers play the Atlanta Falcons.
I can't wait for that game at Lambeau Field.
Hopefully, hopefully it'll be better that these upcoming games and then we two Monday night game is gonna be a good one.
Saints and Raiders, hopefully will be better.
I think it will be then saying then saying with weak week three, probably gonna be the best Monday Night football game of all time, probably like Chiefs Rams when they went 54 to 51 Monday night, he's gonna be Chiefs Ravens, Week three.
Definitely gonna look forward to those games.
You know, that's gonna be the one where you just sit back and watch the show.
And overall, you know, I mean, I think we've recapped all the games for week one.
It's fun having football back.
You know, It finally seemed like a good sense of normalcy and even having some fans in attendance like that.
That was great to see.
Like, some stadiums have limited capacity.
It was It was great to see.
And also, you know, it's great when your favorite teams go.
Wanna know? Pounded.
Connie? Wanna know Club one of the club? Sorry. Sorry.
Hey, hopefully one and one for you.
That's right. One one's better than I want to.
So as you was talking there, I went on through here and got her records.
So for the first week, last place in picking was Cory.
His record is eight and 15.
Me and Alex tied at nine and 15.
Connie, you were 11 of 15 Earth given out of 15.
So you win Week one.
Your presence is there E I missed out.
I definitely missed out on that one.
When? When you guys do years.
Is it Saturday? Because I definitely to be way just kind of just yeah to say that this is a thing, you know, but yeah, sure.
Next Saturday, we could dio e I'm with it whenever me and you.
I think me and you are going to be the consistent ones, at least in the very e Put up a good fight.
I could put up a good fight.
I made game picks. I went 11 and five.
Did you? I don't mean I don't mean I don't mean it.
And now I mean, like, I'm being available.
So, like, you know, stream and do everything like that.
So listen like, well, I'm always down whenever you need me.
I think I think we keep these pics to a weekly thing and see what we see.
What? Tally it up at the end of the year.
Sounds good to me.
The only thing with me is I work retail, so sometimes I'm at work till 9. 30.
Yeah, uh, multitask at the retail.
All right, here we go.
We've got on the line on the loud thing.
Uh, we got a week to game picks.
Three Customer needs assistance inthe e.
Thursday night's game.
What's going on here? Cowboys need assistant.
And when helps e host.
Sorry. Sorry, host man.
You know, I might know. Hey.
Hey. The Reds air? Yes.
Right now you're the Yankees.
You're supposed to.
Hey, Dodgers finally got a win.
Best record in baseball.
What do they dio way had to give me relating loss against against the slam Diego Padres.
We came back and won.
Mookie Betts Looks good, like usual.
I just hope we don't have another playoff joke.
I swear to God, if we lose in the first round with you're gonna lose to the team behind me in the world.
Siri's So it doesn't matter, e.
I wanna push your love.
I mean, Tampa Bay looks good.
You could make a minister.
Hey, same thing for me here on the Dodgers.
I ain't worried about nobody in the NL, maybe Cincinnati, if they could make a maybe or Atlanta.
But, I mean, hey, the Dodgers, I just hope it isn't another playoff.
You better be worried about slam Diego.
You better worry about the Cincinnati ****ing Reds.
I will what we call claiming that boosts a new if the if the Mets sneaking as the eight seed and have to play the Dodgers with their pitching staff in the three game Siri's uh, that was the best of five.
No first round is a three game Siri's good boy.
If we live to the max, I would have to go upto.
I would physically fly to L A and say Fire Dave Roberts.
How are we losing to the Met? Let's do this.
If the Dodgers go out the first round, you have to take one full bite of your cheesehead and it's a phone cheese.
It's a foam cheesehead thing is a nice one.
It's got autographs on here.
It's got a James Jones autograph, and it will. If you care.
I can't do that.
I can't This'll.
Chief has been through a lot.
I mean, look at the wear and tear.
It's not in full form.
It's gone through many years.
How about this? This Steve Garvey bobble head has to be put away up in there.
If the Dodgers lose in the first round, I will put away the Steve Garvey head in there.
How about you? Whoever beats them first round.
If it happens, you have to highlight the helmet to that team.
Color this Steve Garvey bubble head.
E Think you've got to buy a bobblehead of whatever team beats you.
Okay, we'll do that.
God, doesn't matter. The player.
Yeah, all right, all.
Why not? I'll do that.
I don't think we'll lose in the first round.
And it's all there is only the first round.
It doesn't matter. Whatever.
Just around just the first round, just the first round.
If the dog is really the first round, if it's a five game series, I mean or a three game series.
Did you say it's the three game series? It is a three game series.
First one is three.
It's 35777 and I don't know if you guys saw it, but they released today.
There's no off days.
No, only the only off days during the playoffs for for the team who off day 345 off day seven or 67 But L CS or DS are they? Are they still eyes all straight through.
Are they still gonna have the Bs extra innings rule where they put a guy on second base? Yes, they know.
Not in the playoffs on the playoff.
Good, that's what they if they do that in the playoffs and let's gonna be ridiculous.
So those long ending games and extra innings you gotta get it quick and done in nine.
No experts, listen.
All I'm saying is, all I'm saying is you can hear a lot more of this conversation because I think I think I might be co hosting backstop banter this week for somebody.
I don't know who it is yet, but Backstop Ventures this week, so we'll be talking about baseball playoff baseball coming soon.
Obviously, the Yankees, Dodgers and Reds all have a chance to win the division.
So let's put it all in.
Let's try and each win our divisions on the Central on now West a least, uh, that's that's what's ourselves.
Nothing but for all three of or is it just me? If the Dodgers in the first round, I have absolutely no faith in the Yankees winning their first round, I have no faith in the Reds win in the playoffs or making it to the playoffs.
So it's only just me.
So it's just me where I have tow by.
Uh, is it the bobble head of the team that I lose to? Yeah.
So he went to the match by a meth bubble.
Or you have to buy a bobblehead from Cincinnati Reds and the Yankees.
Oh, you know what, Michael? I knew you were sorry.
Thank you. Thank you.
Just the team that we lose too.
I'm only going, I'm only going with the team.
Listen, I have no mark to share Bubble Head right up here.
I'll send you some of you. No problem.
I wrote to the bobblehead, but only to the team that we lose you.
I've gotta Adam Dunn.
Not bobblehead, No good.
Uh, legends of Dodger baseball? Yeah, A Griffey Jr.
A away up there.
So? And we're talking football anyway.
Having football anyways, But baseball wise, If the Dodgers lose in the first round, I will buy a bobblehead of whoever beats the Dodgers.
Cowboys, the bad man, a bad man.
