Jan tired as well, you know.
So bad in this apartment tape.
Welcome to the newest episode.
Sports talk Central.
I'm your area code.
We have our demon mood and hear the coast hunter, and then we're gonna talk NFL, MLB, college football.
So we'll go right into it.
And we're gonna start with, um, Thursday night football or your thoughts.
What were your thoughts in the game last night? Um, you know, Baker.
Mayfield had another interception.
So, you know, congratulations to Baker e mean, I don't do like watching Joe Burrow.
Um, it's not gonna be, honestly, be fun. Thio taste.
So I don't think for either of us to face him for the next decade to 15 years or whatever.
How long he stays single, I think How honestly, be a bangle for a long time, but, um, just it's just not gonna be fun to watch him, you know, just to go, because I really like rooting for the guy.
But now that he's a bangle, it's just not fun.
If you saw that two minute drill that he led last week during the late stages of the Chargers game.
I think Bengals fans.
It's probably happiest.
They've been in about four years and on, and there was a sadness.
They've been with the miskick and then, like he's so he's so bad.
But, I mean, he had a couple of really nice throws last night.
Couple on the run that was like, Wow, look like a season that, um, A J.
Green got hurt again, right? Did he game? I think he did.
He got hurt again, which is it's sad.
I mean, he's, uh he was so good.
I loved watching.
I know how you torched my team left and right.
He tortured the Ravens all the time, so I know he's just been so banged up these last couple of seasons.
It's really unfortunate.
Yeah, that's why with um like, that's why I wanted the Ravens to get him because it's like if you can't if you can't defend him, just get him on your team exactly.
But now he just can't stay healthy.
I think he did leave the game if I'm not mistaken, but I mean the Browns, they took care of business, you know, I guess Odell Beckham finally woke up after.
Ah, slumber cream hunting Nick Chubb in the backfield are going to be a problem. I think we're Cleveland.
That's going to be interesting.
Toe watch down the stretch.
Um, but, you know, it was this was this was a 28 13 35 30 35. 35.
I I honestly turned the game off when it was 28 to 13.
So my apologies, but wow.
Um, if anyone took the over on that, they're feeling pretty good.
But, I mean, they're just e mean if you're allowing the Bangles to score 30 points on you.
And a lot of that is not even a J.
Green's doing with Joe Burrow.
It's kind of sad.
I'm I just don't really think the Browns were that good, I think Baker Mayfield.
So it is a long ways to go, but, you know, it was a good win for them.
They get toe one and one.
I don't really know who they play next, but yeah, for the Bengals.
Um, until I guess, you know, can they get the number one pick and get a big defensive player in the draft because I just don't think their defense is that good, To be honest.
If they do get to number one pick, Uh, and I was if I was, You know, if I was in charge of the Bangles, I would either.
I mean, you know, it's not Tamar Chase, because they already have, Like Tee Higgins and A J.
Green and audit Tate.
They got, they got the receivers.
Um, so, first of all are, well, themselves up.
No, if they do get the number one pick, I think they're gonna go with, um, Can a Sewell who was a He's a tackle from Oregon, and he's a consensus top three picks.
I think what they might do if they do get the number one pick.
If you take either trade the number one pick to get more picks or get or gets too well and just have your book and tackle to Jonah Williams and Penny so well for the future.
So that's what I would assume.
Um, I don't know who Well, I mean, maybe Michael Parsons e probably think he might go top five and next year's draft, to be honest with you, Yeah.
So maybe they go with him.
But I know they drafted a couple of linebackers, but Michael Parsons seems like he's going to be really good in the league.
So, first of all, browns play the Washington football team next week.
Oh, well, you know, well, though, they did come back against the Eagles.
They gotta watch out on that Dwayne Haskins.
Look pretty good.
So that's not honestly not Guinea win for the Browns.
I don't think any win right now is to give me Winfrey.
Cleveland, But yeah, I don't I don't think that Baker Mayfield is gonna be really happy about next week because we could go more into it when we talk about, like, the other games.
But the Eagles did have a banged up A line like the Redskins have a killer, um, D line which does, which does? Hi, weakness of their secondary.
It's not just changed Young.
Its's Monta sweat its during pain.
It's Tim Saddle.
There's a bunch of other guys there as well, so ah, them against going up against Baker.
I mean, I don't know if that's gonna be a fun matchup, but the main take away I got got from this Waas Baker.
Like, I think that if Baker struggles this year and this was the question I do want to pose, like, do you think he's gonna get Mitch? He's gonna be, like, mixed Robiskie.
Or do you think he's gonna beam or they're going to give him a chance? I don't think he's gonna be that what I mean? Know what I mean is like they declined his fifth year option at the end.
Oh, yeah, I could see them doing that, but, you know, they got Baker the number one pick.
I know the Bears traded up to get Mitch, so it's supposed to say anything but e think they're gonna probably give him, um or, like, longer leash.
I would say, you know, they're gonna just They may take it, but he really struggles again.
I could really see them actually declining that option.
It is the Browns after all.
Yeah. I'll give you a prediction right now.
I would say that if if Baker Mayfield struggles next, if he struggles next, if he struggles for this year, I think they're gonna allow it there.
He's still give me the quarterback for next.
He's still give me the quarterback for next year, but they're going to take.
I think you're going to see Sam.
How? Or someone being the next Cleveland Browns quarterback.
I think that I don't Yeah, I think it might be saying like and I'm only thing saying How? Because I'm not familiar with any other May.
Ah, guy that quarterback into 2020 2022 class I mean, may.
I don't think Hendon Hooker is going to be like that.
Good enough that he would be in contention for a first round pick.
I mean, yeah, it's like I said, Sam, how was really I only meant name drops him because he's the one guy I can think right now.
That could be the number one pick in a couple of years.
Yeah, Sam, how is going to be? I'm not ready to.
Safer from picky.
We got to see how he does for his soft 100 years.
But I mean, too early to tell.
So I mean, we're talking years in advance, so I mean, I don't think the Browns, we're gonna go out and get Trevor Lawrence next season.
and that's gonna go like someone like the Jets or something like that.
We'll get to the Jets later podcast with the betting stuff.
That's just a sorties.
But, I mean, I could definitely see that.
But, you know, this is this is the big year, I think for Baker right now.
Yeah, and I think Joe Burrow, I think he's probably go to Yeah, I agree.
I think Joe Burrow is gonna be really good.
Especially was to help.
I mean, just going back on this baker point.
I mean, he has They've given him a everything for receivers.
Odelein, Landry running back shop and punch.
Ah, tight end here.
We don't know about Harrison, Brian, but in joke you and Austin Hooper tackles Conklin and Detrick.
Willis e mean, they got it.
They have They've given him everything and any any still sacked and he's still disappointing.
Uh, e I mean, like I said, Joe Burrow is looking like a seasoned vet back there.
He was making reads last night that I don't think Andy Dalton never made in the eight years that he was there.
Yeah, I think Joe Burrow is one of those guys like he's one of those rare guys who play.
He's gonna play like a vendor for its entire career.
And I do not like the idea of facing him, Um, with the Bengals.
Uh, I understand.
What? Here's what I'll say about the Bengals.
Get that offensive line fixed like you have the quarterback.
You have your offense, you just need the offensive line.
It's a bad unit, but I think Bobby Hearts one of their tackles, he's one of the worst tackles in football.
Don't know Williams, I believe, is one of the tackles.
I don't know if he's.
That's why I felt like if they do pick in the top five, they tackle from organs.
Probably who they're who they should go after, like resist the urge to resist the urge to go after Jamaar Chase and then re team him with and not do the re team up with, uh, Borough.
But you you do not don't, um, just go was tackled improve that because Joe Burrow I feel like he's the type of guy they're gonna If they want him to throw, they might want him to throw like 40 50 times a game and behind a bad offensive line.
He's going to get Andrew locked like that's That's the fear.
Yeah, I do not want him to get Andrew Luck that way.
Scare me a lot because he's just so from the watch.
But yeah, I mean, like, we both said it's going to design a vaccine for the next decade, probably twice a season two.
So, yeah, so let's move on to the other two.
Are teams and talk about them with and say, I think the Steelers game was earlier.
So you can, um because why don't you talk about the Steelers person? I'll grant you want to be expected? It's Week one, but you know, the Steelers were also playing a pretty bad Giants team that's typical of what they do.
They play down to competition.
They had, I believe, want someone on ESPN brought up the Giants.
Like with the Giants.
It's like it's a JV team that has say, Qanbar, Goalie basically asked all some ****ysts.
You know, we're saying already, Yeah, it's time to put the Steelers up with the Ravens and the Chiefs.
It's like, Okay, back off What Z? A Hillary fan saying That's not an actual No, it was It was it was ****ysts on ESPN.
I'm saying when you're saying it, you're saying it.
Yeah, Steeler fan saying.
And not issues like Okay, back off.
There's there's two world class teams and then it's hopefully everyone else you'll see.
Like I said from the game.
So I think the Steelers can potentially contend the season short.
You know, we've got to really see it.
We got to see how then does and how the defense does.
The defense is still pretty nasty.
They were having Daniel Jones running that entire game.
When you hold ST John Barclay to six yards rushing in on 15 carries, your time had more rushing yards.
Oh, my God, it's just big.
Ben had more rushing yards.
That that's how that's how sad it waas.
It was just in the backyard of all game.
But Dupri, you gotta pay him.
I don't know what it takes it this point.
You gotta pay him.
I don't They're probably gonna let James Connor walk.
He's just I feel bad for the guy because he has such a great season.
When Levian was sitting out and then his.
His body must be just breaking down.
After everything he's been through, I get it.
It's just very, very unfortunate.
I want to see him succeed and do well.
It's just his body just keeps breaking down and he still look good.
I mean, honestly, Big Ben, He looked fine.
You know, if we touchdown passes, juju looked really, really good.
It's like it's almost like, Wow, you put a franchise quarterback back in.
He looks like a number one B two are good, really good wide receiver.
Wow, It's almost as if that works.
You know he's not getting passes from a duck caller for 10 games or whatever the hell it waas or a reindeer.
It's just like, Wow, yeah, when you have your franchise quarterback, you look good.
So e was great to see.
I love seeing him happy.
You know, it's great to see him do his stuff.
And then, like I said, the defense was great.
I mean, that's just you know, when Cameron Hayward's getting interceptions, you're doing a good job.
What do you think the Steelers will draft bends replacement? Because I don't think Mason Rudolph that that's not gonna be for at least a few years.
I don't think you know you're looking at you're looking at.
Maybe when Sam how declares for the draft, That could be three years from now after his senior season.
If he stays, you're looking at maybe that timeline.
To be honest, it's not.
Would you rather draft a year earlier? A year late, like the next franchise quarterback Early? Yeah, like you would like.
What kind of like what? The Ravens stayed where they had flagged out.
They are, Honestly, I do it a year earlier.
You have to see what the options are out there.
But, yeah, it was a good win.
They finally pulled away.
You know, the Steelers always like to make it interesting.
No matter what, they almost never blow a team out.
It's just not in their DNA.
They have to keep it interesting always until the end.
It's just what they dio good to get the win, you know, like I said, defense look good.
Ben looked really, really good.
Special teams need to be reworked on a little bit.
Chris Boswell was a little shaky, but he should.
Okay, But you had some season ending injury.
We had at least one.
Yeah, Zach Banner.
That just really, really frustrating.
It's just frustrating.
You know, he worked his ass off to finally be a starter in the NFL because he's gonna back up his whole career, finally gets the opportunity that looks really good doing it and then blows out his knee.
I mean, that's just that's sad.
I don't know, you know, you could see him crying on the field.
So that was sad on early was an injury because I think bin full this week.
I think he's gonna play this Sunday.
He sounds like it's OK.
Castro is gonna be out.
Still, he's nursing an injury Was new.
Skating is out, so they're going to be starting a couple new offensive lineman.
She is a little scary, you know, especially for the 38 year old quarterback back there.
But, I mean, we're playing Denver who is really banged up with their pass rush.
No, von Miller, probably Chubb is really, really banged up, isn't still he's playing, but he's still a little banged up and then they was out.
So I think that Lindsay might be out for that game, too, so they're pretty banged up.
So home opener, No fans.
Steelers their favorite in that game.
They should win it.
But, you know, it's very still very early in the season.
You're still working things out.
So that's basically all I have in this year's.
If you want to touch on the Ravens, blow out of the ground.
Yeah, I'll bring up that up.
Let me just first last question where your thoughts on Drew lock Because I think he's going to be a stud.
I really like the way he plays.
I know they lost Tennessee.
I think that was in the final seconds.
They kicked the field goal to win the game.
If I'm not mistaking, I didn't stay up all the way.
I didn't I didn't stand for that game at all, 14 13 and I think the Titans kicked the game winning field goal very late in the game.
But I mean, I do like to lock.
I'm really hoping that he can succeed.
I'm not really sure if he's gonna have Courtland Sutton for this game.
I thought he got hurt against the Titans to, um have to double check on that, though but I'm used to watching more.
Yeah, it looks like Bradley Chubb is going to play.
I don't know what his availability would be, but, um, but yeah, like, that's what I would say about.
But we'll see about that.
What's the Ravens? I mean, you mentioned how the Steelers have been, like keeping the game close.
The Ravens have been there at this point like they don't care how much it went by because I remember last year's like they beat the Dolphins, 59 to 10.
They beat the Texans, 41 7.
Even like the Patriot with a 14 point When, um, I the Rams game was just brutal for them, for for the Rams, because that was that was just that was a straight asphalt.
I mean, they start off the season great and that I anticipate the offense would be really good.
The run defense was a little shaky, but when you have a new D line, no preseason games, that's to be expected.
I think they'll clear it up.
I mean, Kallias Campbell's too good of a player.
Thio, Clay's Campbell, Derek Wolfe and Brandon Williams is too good of a D line to allow, like, five yards per carry, even if it is the Browns.
So that's, um, Well, I I don't think that's we.
I think that the Randy has better the past defense.
I think it's going to be is gonna be good.
Uh, Sean Elliott played well.
I mean, you didn't hear his name called out a lot other than, like a brutal hit he had on one of the running on one of the players, like you could tell like it was a straight up.
It was a great head.
Uh, offensively, your same old, same old Mark Andrews.
It's still a top five tight end marquees.
Brown is still out running.
Guys, Uh oh, yeah, yeah.
And then, um, the one point you wanna bring up with Lamar's.
We know he's athletically gifted.
We know he's a skill player playing, basically who happens to be a really good quarterback.
But the great the good thing about him is I don't know if you notice it, but ah, lot of his throws, like the his the football I Q.
Wallet has been high.
It's now getting up to the point where it's matching up with his athletic ability, and now he's doing a good job of because I remember like there's a couple of throws where, like previously it was, he could make the throw down the field.
But there's a lot of separation.
The more efficient better he would be.
But now he could throw.
You could put you could put him, at least for one game, showing you could put him in man coverage and that one catch against marquees.
And then there's another catch with Willie Snead and then Mark Andrews like you saw like there's not a lot of separation.
And then the arc on the ball, the placement, the timing, everything looks miles better.
That what it was last year, and then senior guy like Lamar Jackson was that it was that athletic ability with And now if you match up with the football, I Q.
I mean, how are you going to stop this guy? Because if you blitz, he's gonna throw over the top.
If you play, don't, then they'll beat you in the run.
If you play man now, he now, at least for a game.
We know he has the ball placement and then the Ark and every.
All those between the line details that it's gonna be, How are you going to defend against this guy? And then that's without looking at the guys that they have.
Whether it's marquees, Brown is dangerous.
But then again, you got Devin Duvernay.
If you guys who are who are good in middle of the field and, by the way, God James Pro Shea, who is not gonna get much touches.
But you could still be dangerous, so and it was a tight end.
I mean, you lost hating her.
So you got Mark Andrews.
You've got Nick Boyle.
If Miles Boykin can develop and kind of be like that Hayden Hurst roles, you're really not losing much there.
It really is like how it's like they can throw the kitchen sink at you.
They could do everything but the kitchen sink at you, beat you in multiple ways, and basically they taken just game plan by game plan.
So, like, for example, they're playing the Texans.
They should be two Texans.
My prediction is like 35 17 and yeah, so like and I think that the run defense is going to be better against Houston.
I think that David Johnson is going to have some big runs, but, ah, lot of kids yards.
We're gonna be in the first half the game when the game is close.
I think it towards the end of the first half, the Ravens are going to start to pull away from Houston.
It and then DeShaun Watson.
And there's gonna be quickly by fourth quarter sweet garbage time.
And John Watson is gonna get the bulk of his yards.
Um, both of its yards, I think 35.
So probably like 35 17.
Um, I think that J.
Dobbins, after watching what Clyde Edwards layer did to that defense, J.
K. Dobbins, I think it's going to feast.
I think he could have.
I think he could have at least 70 yards rushing, maybe another 20 or 30 receiving.
But I think he's gonna be good.
I think Kevin Duvernay is gonna break out.
Uh, so I mean, that's my prediction for that game.
We should be Houston's, which is a long way of saying it, and then then we have can't then we a Kansas city and then we have Washington.
I just want to know who the Texans ****ed off.
Oh, to have Kansas, Baltimore and then Pittsburgh and then Minnesota to start to see some.
Well, that will be more Brian because he decided to trade DeAndre Hopkins E.
I don't know how he's still a GM.
Do you think he gets? Do you think he gets fought? Do you think that they fired him by, like, mid mid with their If they miss the point? Well, they made the playoffs last season, so he maybe has a little bit of a leash.
But if they miss the playoffs, I could see them doing it.
To be honest with you, the Texans, they're just Yeah, they're they're a master of the other vets right now.
So let's go recap some of the other news, like some of the other news.
So, like, let's first bring up the, uh, Buccaneer.
It's like what we did you Did You see the Saints Buccaneers game now and yeah, I was at my girl's place watching it, just like just like cooking dinner and all that.
You know, love to see Tom Brady threw a couple interceptions.
That was nice, you know, especially that pick six.
I don't know what that was? That was just that.
I'm done harping on Tom Brady.
You know, I just had to do it.
But, I mean, the things are also really, really good.
Album camera looked awesome.
I think he just signed his contract extension, which was That's a lot of money.
I think he's really, really good.
I I don't know how I don't I'm conflicted on, like, extending running backs because once I would do it for yeah, like tomorrow is one of the ones, but typically is you draft them, you let them.
You you let him play out the rookie contract, and then you let them go, and you dropped another guy.
Yeah, it's it's camera.
He's kind of like a hybrid, though.
Yeah, you could put a one.
McCaffrey, it's one.
Uh, maybe, uh, yeah.
Album cooked yet? Yeah, I like I said, Elliott, you could do it for two.
Those were probably the big Barkley and Paul Barclay.
Right now he's gonna get paid for his contract with the Giants.
Um, yeah, that's honestly basically it, but it was just, you know, the saints.
They have a good unit on both sides of the ball.
Drew Brees is still swinging around like he's 25 kind of.
But you know, I mean, it's just week one for the Buccaneers.
Well, to see how they dio going forward.
But you know what? That's gonna be one of Tom Brady's first Week.
One losses in a long time.
Yeah, I think the Buccaneers start off.
Really? So I mean, I think the Buccaneers have too much talent to, like, not be, like to not be like of six and 10 team.
Yeah, I could see them being like 97 like just based off the rocker thing.
97 10 and six or something. My God.
Yeah, and I think that I mean granted, like, keep in mind, there's no there's been no pre season the first four weeks.
It's technically your preseason, so let's see.
Let's see him, like, spend more time with that playbook.
Got like, I think I think Godwin is doubtful, but he found another.
He, um, look for all the negative things to say about Tom Brady, you could also point you.
We also have to admit with with him that he could take like your random grocer from like Walmart put a football uniform on him, and he could still be good.
Yeah, like who knew? Like, you make me look good, you know? Like like, why did you know before the season started Who? Scotty Miller Waas? I literally have no idea.
Well, I mean, he's And he I think he's like one of those, like a second year receiver from Tampa Bay.
And he had, like, six or seven catches.
And so there's a lot of people that want, like, you're adding him on a fantasy because it's like, Well, look what he did with, like Adelman and Hogan and those guys, and that's where I was bringing up with the example.
He could take random guys off the street you don't know about.
No, it's too early with Scotty Miller.
But you could turn turn them into how, like somewhat of a household start.
Uh, see, Yeah, it was the Saints.
Or, like you said, they're good.
Team Camaro is good.
My promise is going to be out for a few weeks.
I don't know how that's gonna So it looks like Emmanuel Sanders is gonna be the number one guy.
I don't know if they drafted a receiver.
Uh, they probably I think, um, knowing if Thomas was out, maybe they wouldn't have drafted Cesar Ruiz in the first round.
Maybe they would have gone with maybe a Tee Higgins in that offense.
Who knows? I mean, but that was That's all I have to say about that one air.
I think you kind of brought up Aaron Rodgers.
Uh, eso Aaron Rodgers actually jumped on the Vikings.
Who ****ed him off this season? Man Who love Probably, I think, uh, yeah.
Love ****ed him off.
Yeah, and I was like, I think he's gonna be there.
I think he's a quarterback for next two or three years, and they'll try to get out of his contract or trade Jordan, love.
I do not understand the rationale for picking Jordan love.
Yeah, they must have ****ed off Aaron Rodgers quite a bit because he took it out on this.
So last week? That was incredible.
Yeah, and then, yeah, that's pretty much what is there? I mean, just shows how great of a quarterback use like he can like they didn't even draft a receiver.
It's honestly It's a crime.
He only has one Super Bowl E for a crime that I think he's thrown, What, 10% of his touchdown passes? No.
He's thrown only like a small match like first round receivers, like most, either second round or later, he plays with a bunch of corpses.
Well, I'm Jordy Nelson is awesome.
And rattle cops, too.
But, I mean, he just They don't give them enough help.
That's the horrible, right? Yeah.
Um, did you think or go back to And then what do you think about the read the Washington football team? Like, do you think that they're gonna be good? Or was it because you are? Well, they end up on Carson wins pretty good.
That was a nice choke here by the Philadelphia Eagles.
That was going up a 17.
Nothing lead against Washington.
That's kind of embarrassing.
But I mean, you know, better start than I think we all expected.
I think everyone thought the Eagles were going to win that game.
Obviously, they didn't.
But, you know, it's still early, you know that they played the Browns.
That would be a nice win from them.
Should maybe potentially go to know but e playing the Cardinals this week.
So that's what we really interesting e Next week.
Cardinals this week.
Yeah, Arizona is coming off a nice win against San Francisco.
That was surprising.
So Arizona's gonna be Oh, it's impressing me more and more And guess who his number one receiver was And guess where he could have been used.
And guess who was number two.
Wide receiver is right now.
Good old little fits.
That's my guy right there.
I'll never get tired of seeing Larry Fitzgerald play football, but, um, let's give it a shooting match up.
I mean, they start to face Dallas twice.
They gotta take with them.
They still gotta face this to yours.
Um, a bunch of other teams in the NFC, they got a P bass, and so, um, it's early for them.
So we got to see the D line is great.
I like their decline.
Okay, so it was like going there.
Um, but, you know, their their their Their front seven is nasty.
You know, you can put chase young and like you said Carrigan in there and a bunch of that I can't even like sweats on there.
Who's, like sweat on there? There.
There are pains in there.
You can rock all those guys, the pastor, every play.
We're gonna get a quarterback so hard time.
Yeah, I just think that right now there, I wouldn't say they're They're like this year is 40 Niners.
I think I'm not not that's what they're gonna go to the Super Bowl, but it's like the one team that people thought wasn't going to be good, Um, but is good, mainly because of their front seven.
I think it's probably gonna be the Redskins.
I think that next year they should.
They should focus.
I think they should draft a Can't forget.
I keep referring to other education.
Washington football team.
Okay, guys, it's not the Redskins anymore.
Stop saying, Dude, that's racist.
Yeah, it's like, What's the Raiders like? You have to like, I have to get used to calling the Vegas Raiders and stuff like that.
My step that had no idea that they moved to Vegas because he's from California, like San Francisco area he was when he moved there.
Like, yeah, they couldn't reach a deal with Oakland Coliseum.
He was like God, thank God that places such a **** hole.
Yeah. It's really Washington football team.
I think they should focus on drafting, like in the first round, If they could get some help for this for, uh, yeah.
Yeah, they should. I think they could be a team in the future.
I mean, the Giants aren't going anywhere.
The Eagles, I think, are stuck in neutral.
We have no idea what they're going to do And what you should be a contender.
Yeah, uh, being a Cowboys, Did you think that that was how offensive pass interference attended the game? Do Jalen Ramsey sold that? So give him.
Give him the Oscar right now, given there right now. Dude.
I just handed out for best best picture at the Oscars.
I mean, good grief, like I mean, he's just like flapping his arms up because, like the guy, like Like did that to him.
Like, and it's like, Dude, like what? A dive.
You get a red card and soccer for that. I was embarrassing.
I understand why I understand.
Like, I know the rules.
Like if you push off and it did look like a pushed off.
But Jalen Ramsey sold that.
So Well, that was that.
Such a That was such a horse**** call.
I felt bad for Dallas.
I mean, I felt Yeah, honestly, that's only well, now it only scored three points important the entire second half.
So that wasn't the like, the office pounds interference with, You know, that's the only time will honestly say, I feel bad for cowboys, because that was embarrassing.
You got to get that call, right? Oh, yeah, I know.
You know, it was also embarrassing Was granted this other team, but seeing Aaron Donald just at all.
Yeah, What a stud.
He's so awesome.
Oh, that's why I feel bad for the Eagles.
That's why. Honestly, that's why I feel bad for the Eagles.
Like they got a makeshift offensive line.
They're gonna get Lane Johnson back. Great.
Who are we going up against the ramp? Who? The ramps up Aaron.
Donald, of course, in one's got sacked eight times last game.
Let's see if we can do it more this week.
They're gonna get him killed back there.
E just They literally are going to get him killed he got killed.
The fricking murdered last week.
It was terrible to watch.
No, I mean, yeah, I have the Rams winning that one.
I have the rambling, and this is kind of a pre set up to, like, our new bedding section of breaking out.
You had a lock section.
Um, so I think e don't think there's any other game that, um or anything other noteworthy from week one.
You want? We can go right into our locks of the week if you want.
Yeah, we do that so you can start with that.
So take against the spread.
If you guys were listening, there's some pretty good ones.
Stay away from to start one.
Stay away from the Dallas Atlanta game.
I'm not really confident Dallas is gonna mind a score that one against Atlanta.
Atlanta? Um, they should be okay.
Pittsburgh is minus seven against the Broncos.
Not really going to touch that one.
Especially if it's the home opener.
Tampa Bay minus nine over Carolina.
That's that's a lot.
You know, you gotta be really confident in that one.
And it's really too much for me but the one I'm really looking at right now.
This is the big one.
San Francisco minus seven over the Jets.
The Jets are just very, very bad.
Did you watch that last week? Because, Sam, you would see that I thought the highlights.
I was busy watching the Ravens game.
Oh, you gotta listen to W F A N Joe and Evan.
His rants after the Jets lose.
Oh, it's incredible, Greenberg from ESPN.
It was just great because he said, If I'm lucky enough to have grandchildren and they play football, I will not have had them gays coached him out of.
He's just he's terrible.
He's such a bad coach.
I honestly feel for Jets fans because they've had a pit of misery for Lord knows.
Nor Lord knows how long.
I know they have those few A F C championship appearances like that kind of decade ago, but other than that, one of they had to accomplish in the last 20 years, yeah, it's just a sad hit of misery every single year without franchise and you know, Levian Bell man.
I feel bad for him a little bit.
I I think it would have been better for both parties If the Steelers and him would have made it work because he's suffering, they're pretty badly.
I'm such a bad decision by him.
He's gonna He's never gonna say it publicly.
He may not even say it publicly after he retires.
But, you know, maybe one day he'll think you know what? Maybe I should have stayed where I had a really great, because he went to a team that is just in disarray.
But anyways, I'm getting a little off sidetrack.
Take the Niners minus seven.
In that game, I think they're gonna come out pretty ****ed off that they lost the Cardinals.
They were leading that game the whole way and they lost.
So, um, they're gonna want to come out and beat the Jets.
Um, what's your first one s the first one? I'm on Vegas insiders right now.
Okay, So there's one that stands out to me, which is the Jacksonville Jaguars at the Tennessee Titans.
Tennessee minus 11.
I think that's too big.
I I think Jacksonville covers.
I think that if they if they are going to tank, I think we are going to start Thio.
They are going to tank.
Maybe later towards the season, E you're losing to a team that's open, actually admitting that they're losing.
They literally trying toe lose every week.
So, like I said, I think that Tennessee enough Jacksonville is going to cover, especially that minus 11.
Yeah, they're going to cover.
I mean, um, obviously, one of the ones I had was the 40 Niners.
So did you have another one? Um, yeah, I did.
Um, let me just find it here, Riel.
Um, honestly, I think Baltimore minus seven or Houston, I think they should win it.
I should think Baltimore minus seven.
Yeah, I was concerned doing it, but I was like, I'm like, you know, I'm a Ravens fan, so I tried Thio.
Yeah, I'm not gonna even touch that one.
So I'm s so like I was gonna leave it up to you if you wanted to, like, say, whether that was, like, a lot, We're not Baltimore minus seven with them, and then the last one would be This is tough.
This is actually I don't like that one all.
Um Green Bay, Detroit minus 6.
5. That's a good one.
I could definitely see the Lions.
They'll always played Green Bay, Green Bay and Detroit with you know what? Buffalo? Minus 5.
5 over Miami, I think.
Buffalo Buffalo, You buffalo? Yeah.
You just told me that you just gave what I was like, what my other two to my other ones were.
Which was Buffalo over Miami and minus 5.
5 and then a green bay over Detroit.
I just think that for some reason, I just think that Detroit is just It's just unlikely that swift that was so sad.
He had won them the game and then drops it.
Yeah, the one point.
The one I will bring up typically.
Because right now, in Vegas insiders, you had Phillies our favorite over the Rams, minus 4.5.
Typically, I would avoid that, but I just think that the Rams are much better team.
Yeah, I think that, uh, yeah, like I said, the Rams are much better team.
I think that the Phillies o line is gonna be no match for Aaron.
Donald, I I think rams cover.
No, they're not Sorry.
Well, actually, minus one Philly that's minus one.
Um, looking at Oh, yeah, it is minus one.
That's a That's a tough one.
The the honestly, the the under during that, that's my 45 half under.
I might take the under in that game.
To be honest, I don't know what those teams were scored 44 points.
Oh, yeah, I know.
But also the other thing that I am the Jacksons, Jaguar, tighten skin.
It's a Currently it's minus 7.
5, not minus 11.
But still, I would, I think, Jacksonville covers.
Stay away from that one, guys, I would not touch that.
Yeah, I mean, yeah, I could see What do you think about the Cardinals Red football team game? Because right now it's fine.
The Cardinals? No, I'm not touching that one.
Yeah, I think that could be upset.
That could be the upset of the week.
That could be the upset of the week.
If ifit's Colin Murray that could be the week, Uh, the Patriots who talks That's too close.
Yeah, that's a tough one, I think.
I'm not sure. Stop quiet.
E don't know who's at the door Quiet.
If everyone listening a lot to listen to the dog barking so we can do that while we're doing Are betting so funny.
E can meet myself real quick.
We'll be right back.
You're still in muted.
We should be way. Should be good to her.
The life I've person is here to fix her thing, but we can continue, right? Yeah.
So you said that the Patriots and then the Seahawks.
That's too close.
Yeah, I'd like to see it.
I would lean Seattle just because Yeah, I would lean Seattle just because of Camden, I I like Cam Newton A bunch Gonna go outside actually think is perfect.
This is actually a great view. This is perfect.
You look? Yeah, I like Cam Newton a lot, but I don't know if they can contend with Seattle.
I just don't think the Patriots defense could do that then, uh, and then currently in the process, everyone.
And then, um And then the last one is Saints and Saints and Raiders Saints.
Their favored by six.
It's tough first.
So I'm gonna get I'm gonna try to get ah hunter back into the into the thing.
Like saints and Raiders.
That's minus six.
Ah, uh, saints and Raiders is right now minus six.
And right now, that, um yeah, so onto our current technical difficulties on his.
And so that's kind of continuous.
And from their states and Raiders or minus, uh, a minus six. That's me.
Top on. That's a toss up.
The loss of Michael Thomas is the loss of Michael Thomas is gonna be pretty big, but, yeah, I lost.
So Michael Thomas has to be pretty big, but I think that the same I think that they're saints.
They're going, I think that they're going to I think that could be a good game to get on.
Uh, you know, and then he's still on that one.
All right, so I'm while hunters there, I will started.
I'll cover baseball, So he s so the Orioles have struggled for a little bit now.
Also, it would be at the eighth playoff seed, but they have been calling up some of their prospects, and I think what's going to be really interesting to see is whether some of their prospects, um, whether some of their whether they can carry on this performance and, uh, their performance until next year.
And they actually have played well.
I mean, you guys like you have Dean Kramer, Keegan achin and, uh, what you call, um, And then Bruce Zimmerman made his debut.
He struggled for a little bit.
Yeah, And so I would say that.
And then I think we had other teams that think they're so they're Look, they're not gonna make the playoffs.
Uh, but we do now.
We do know that there's three teams that have made the playoffs and that's the White Sox, the the Rays and the Dodgers.
They all have clinched a playoff spot.
Looks like other teams of the Yankees air pretty close to do doing the same.
Uh, Oakland is close to doing the same.
Ah, canvas right now, asking hunter when he can get back onto the stream.
Eso basically Now we're starting to see what some of the playoff teams and then we're going.
I'll start to bring up college football.
We do have some culture.
Football has started and uh, let's see.
I'm just a fraction, of course.
And in India. Okay.
The WiFi cut out and just a couple things happened.
What? What other ****? So I am so sorry.
E usually never happens, so Okay, no problem.
Yeah, no problem.
That and, uh, what do you think? Why do you think the do you think the Saints and Raiders game is a good one to bet on its saints right out of ST minus six? I think it's a toss up.
I think that I think that toss up are you are able thio Connection.
It looks like hundreds still having.
Ah, technical difficulties.
We'll see if, um okay, um but meanwhile, I'll bring up I'll I'll bring up.
Yeah, I'll bring up college football.
I'll talk to college football. Yeah.
Yeah, I think it might be because you're outside or something.
Yes, it might be because you're outside or something, because, um yeah.
Didn't look so great.
So it might be that, but yeah, you got you got it? No.
So what we have here? Um ah.
So we'll see if he can come back.
Um, we'll see if, um, he could come back on this one, but I mean, so in college football it in Pretty interesting.
Yeah, we're called Miami.
Did beat you a B on on the 10th, 31 14.
North Carolina one, Notre Dame one, George Attack Pit and Clemson and Louisville.
So be really interesting.
Thio eso Those teams are complying. Revolves.
Now, this week, Uh, on one second.
What school do this? Uh uh.
Right now, I'm just figuring how to get 100 back into the thing.
And, um uh I'm just seeing how a kid the yes, saying I I am.
Just see if I could get Hunter back on losing.
Um, Let's see, we have.
Uh yeah, um, that works.
So this is Yeah.
So pretty much what I'm getting s so basically what? I'm just calling.
And I could just I can because the job working kind of pick up the noise.
So yeah, So pretty much What were your thoughts on the on the ST Raiders game? Yeah.
So a first apologies, everyone.
There's, like, WiFi issues out there.
So this is not my my normal residence.
Uh, we got them on Sweet, but yeah, but 15.
I mean, I think, honestly, I would stay away from it that the Raiders was really good, but we granted are their first year head coach.
But, I mean, I think the Raiders can keep that getting close, Especially without Michael's comments.
I think starting attention.
If I think it might be closer than what some people expand me.
And then So let's, um yeah, so let's just move.
Announcing this will be a new segment we're gonna do every week, hopefully without technical difficulties.
But what we're going to do is now we're gonna move on to college football.
Um Well, what? Is there anything you want specifically talk on college football? Um I mean, the game, of course, was moved on.
That's gonna be interesting.
Um, yeah, it's just this is gonna happen, I think, all season long the fact that we couldn't give it this weekend because I think game they were supposed to come.
But, you know, fingers crossed that we could get the second state game next week.
And I'm still not even sure if that's going to happen.
It's just gonna be a really weird season.
Overall, I things and I just wanna see text right here.
That's that's all I really want to see.
But, you know, hopefully now this this works.
I mean, we saw the Big 10 came back.
That was I think they're mainly only Jews.
Yeah, and I think they also like, I may mention, a couple of times they brought up the e.
No, like they might there some prospects.
May said, We're not gonna play in the spring.
So they said, Oh, we might as well try in October or something.
Yeah, I think, Yeah, that's probably what's gonna think it's starting October 19 or something like that.
Something like that. Yeah.
Now we only have two Pac 12.
So I don't really think it's like those didnt play way.
Still Not sure I doubt the tax 12 place.
I think they have, like, restrictions in that area anyway, especially with with what's going on in California right now.
That's just that's a scary sight.
So I don't think I'm gonna play, do the coded and do what's going on in California.
So I think now, with some with eso going back to tack.
I've seen a lot of like you ve a like people like players gloating like, Oh, you guys are scared to players like we're not scared of you guys were not Oh, yeah, it's e I really don't understand it. Like wow.
Virginia back for the first time in 16 years, they could raise the banner now at the stadium we beat Virginia attack 2019.
It's just, if you really don't care that Yeah, and in the point.
And then it was also like, Yeah, like tech fans know the reason why we You guys beat us and that was Perkins.
And he's not your quarterback anymore.
So you Yeah, Was there any other? Did you watching the other because I didn't get a chance.
Brought any of the other game studio.
The Notre Dame looked like total **** against Duke For a while, they start looking for all I know they want the game, but it looks good.
I mean, we talked up in Miami game.
I don't really get to watch a lot of the other games.
I think Navy play to.
I'm not mistaken.
I think this weekend this weekend should be interesting.
I think Miami plays legal.
That's where the day is going.
A lot of games air this weekend.
Of course, you know they can, starting to many months.
But, you know, at D C.
I mean, the FCC is gonna be fun to watch, and it's gonna be a great match of every single week on on CBS.
I think this season outside of Virginia Tech is just the SEC games, I think just, you know, Alabama played Florida.
You know, Tennessee, Georgia.
That's just that's gonna be so much fun.
Yeah, I think for me with college football, like, obviously, I'm gonna watch Virginia Tech.
And then I think, if, um maybe the team that they played in next week or so I'll see you the highlights.
But for me to be more like draft focus.
So, like with the Ravens, if if there's a guys in the SEC that the Ravens could draft, I might go of if they're a good fair or if I should be excited for him, and I'm guessing you be Yeah, I'm pretty sure you'll be doing the same thing as well.
Yes, I guess so.
And then, um I think what else there.
I mean, I I think that it's gonna be I think that I think there should be more games.
Are we postponed? I think there's, like, a two other games that were postponed as well.
UNC Charlotte Gamestop. Postpone.
And then, um, I Yeah, Like I said, I think there's, like, I think that, um I understand.
Then you ve I mean, I know tech fans are upset is well for the game being canceled.
And it's like my problem.
But like like you said, it's a little brother syndrome.
Like, Why do you like, Why are they They're saying that we don't want to play them.
Yeah, so I mean, cultural should be fun.
Um, I honestly, I would cancel the bowl season if, like, possible, just to like, make sure as long as we have a regular season, um, I'll be fine.
I know that a lot of for China Tech haters are going to say, Well, it means your poll streaks.
It's done like No, I would honestly canceled bowl season and just focus on completing the season.
Yeah, I can see them doing that.
I think they also might do only like the Staples, like the New York.
Six goals for teams that get in, And then the rest could be canceled, In my opinion.
So that's, um Yeah, so maybe that's what they do on that end.
And then I think we talked.
Yeah, and then just on some other stuff.
Um, baseball is I just covered.
I covered baseball pretty much.
The Orioles are if they do make the playoffs, is what they are now.
I do not think I did not think there will be.
I don't I didn't think there would be 22 29 at this point.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
And then I think you have a Yeah.
Dodgers got in, and I think Tampa Bay gone and as well, So that's great. Yeah.
And then, um I mean, I suppose I yeah, like the Yankees.
They're gonna get in, we'll see what teams get in.
Um, I'm just more excited to see, like, the prospect that the Orioles have, and all we need to see is if those prospects could develop.
I've said in multiple times on this show that I think the competitive window for the Orioles starts in 2023.
But I think I think if these prospects developed, especially the major league level, and they continue to draft well, I mean 2022 could be a possibility.
Heck, even next year, like if, like for a second wild card spot, they could.
They could be like one of your top nine teams.
Um, next year's well, depending on how many teams, because they might expand the playoffs again next year.
Yeah, so very real possibility that yeah, this one goes well, Thio.
It's also money.
Like if you have, like, 16 teams in the playoffs, that that's just like a billion dollars.
Apparently it's a close to a billion dollars in revenue or something, or even more so.
Definitely that I could definitely see that.
Was there anything in hockey that you want to talk about? Yeah, um, finally.
So tempt a lightning in the dollar.
Stars will be going at it.
Um, Dallas was very surprising to see the Vegas in five games.
Uh, it's very hard to lose, So when your goaltender those 9 58%.
So basically, he stopped all the eight shots in five games.
Pretty ****in good.
Uh, Tampa Bay's probably the best team in the week.
They got here by destroying three teams, so I think I would take Tampa Bay to win the Cup final E first small night they will.
And three years.
That will be the end of the hockey season until when I will start up again.
We finally made it to the final and yeah, that should be really fun.
Matchup to watch.
You guys got this morning in the hockey.
I would definitely recommend Washington team like you can stay right because they play a very fun style of hot.
He had an in basketball.
Speaking of choke job.
See, Clippers choked, Um, the Clippers choked pretty much.
And so it's Lakers and, um, not yet.
Yeah, it's in the heat.
So then, um, yeah, so then what? I'll Yeah.
So this will conclude the last This will conclude today's episode of Sports Talk Central.
Um, if you got if anyone joined in and was looking for the NFL, MLB or any news, uh, once this link is up then you could be able to rewind stuff next week.
Um, so I would just like to bring up every Wednesday. I'm gonna started.
Every Wednesday I start, which is to recap the rave like the Ravens game and then preview preview.
The whatever is going on next week and then, um, every Friday around 22 o'clock, we're we're doing a new episode.
Sports socks central.
The normally, um, if anyone's here like they would see hunter on screen, but technical difficulties got got us Thio about halfway through to a little over halfway through.
That's just unfortunate.
Next week I will be way back from Well, that's not happening.
See you guys next week.
I hope to see you guys next week.
Of course, we'll text each other like, uh, NFL Sunday and stuff like that, But, like, um, yeah, I mean, Hunter.
Well, I guess we'll Hopefully next week will be a lot better.
And then thanks to you, thank you to the audience for listening.
Yeah. Thank you guys for listening.
It will be much better next week.
Me just in here and
