Uh, um, Sean and I are back with you here on a lovely, lovely Tuesday morning.
We are going to do a lot of things today.
Sean is gonna give us His top 10 NFL teams were in a recap the fantasy week.
We are going to discuss the Boston Celtics, the Denver Nuggets and Mawr opinions from the NFL weekend.
So, Sean, what are your top 10 teams after we to first? Hello to you too.
So did your mom never teach you some manners? Corner? You know, she didn't teach me that.
You should never leave when someone's having a conversation with you.
All right, but anyway, you said my top 10 NFL teams live.
Let's get into a week to crazy Weekend.
What? Let's start off with number 10.
You might be a little surprised by this wonder what? Hey, e guess the New Orleans Saints a number 10? I am not impressed with this team.
And really quickly, um, Michael Thomas is not the best skill player are not the best wide receiver in football.
We both, um, it's probably the third best wide receiver, but he may be the most single handedly look at you.
You're walking away.
Went on Fox. That's it. Disrespectful.
But anyway, Michael Thomas might be the most single important skill position player in the entire NFL.
He is this normal things offense.
I had a staff for the right quick.
Um uh, Drew Brees.
Hold on saying it if my daggone Hengelo Drew Brees is dead last in intended, um, air yards per passing example.
Meaning that was 4.
Put Jew breeze passing attempt is 4.
9 yards or five yards for 1/10 which is second worst since 2000 and six.
Worse with Brett Farve in 2000 and nine.
Inspiration with the minutes of the Viking.
Um, anyway, but yeah, just not impressed with this team in in defensively.
They're so inconsistent that Raiders team give credit where credit is due, but they're not that good.
The Raiders were pretty good offensive.
They have some talent, but But to the point where Derrick Cars is lighting the Saints defensive Marshawn Lattimore has to show level.
We lock up the best receiver every single week.
Not just one is a big time game like he did against Mike Evans. Early corn.
The Raiders got whatever they want.
I'm low worried about their number 10.
Um, I really, really like that As a number 10 team.
I don't know if they should be, um, so far back there, but I like the statement.
Um, I'm not that high in Saint either.
Um, Derek Carr through for 2 82 and three touchdowns, they could not.
They needed at least three people to tackle Josh Jacobs all night.
And that's a big thing when you can't tackle the running back and there are good back, like Josh Jacobs e.
I mean, you had Darren Waller catching 12 passes for 103 yards.
Um, and then pretty much everybody else was pretty quiet.
They just had big plays.
Nelson Agler had a 19 yard catch.
Fabian Moreau had a 31 yard catch.
Those were the only catches on the night, but they were big plays.
And when you have the sense, you just can't do that.
And then Drew Brees? Yeah, he definitely is.
Uh, is is he a top 10 quarterback? I'm not to entirely sure.
Number nine if you want, but number nine, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Listen, I'm not nearly is concerned about the Buccaneers.
Since I am about the Saints.
Tampa has to get healthy number to their defense.
Has been better than New Orleans throughout the first couple of weeks around New Orleans.
Take 34 on Tampa Bay.
Brady was starting interceptions.
He actually threw a pick six in that game.
Okay? And that that has something to do with, um, they're running their offensive line looks solid defensively, the vory opportunistic, opportunistic, Um, and they don't want the best stuff.
Ask letters in the league and Shaquille Barrett.
And I said this yesterday.
I think by the end of the season, Brady will be informed, um, with and we'll have more stink with Mike Evans even touched down.
Getting your touchdown on Mike Evans E.
I guess you could argue he put it.
Were only Mike Evans.
You don't know if you saw Warner looks like under threw him a little bit, and Mike Evans had to turn around and get it.
Luckily, those towards the corner also lie lots of like freaking Evans.
I mean, he's one of the best jump all receivers, probably ever to play.
That man is a force, but but yeah, so I got Tampa number nine.
I'm way less concerned about them, even though they lost New Orleans some way less than so.
I said that after week one.
I said after week one of are just different.
Yeah, the Panthers turned the ball over four times on offense, two fumbles and two interceptions.
So if you don't put up 30 plus points on that team just due to the extra possessions, then you're not doing it right.
And they put up 31.
So so good job by them.
Brady did throw another pick.
I just want to address everybody who's gonna be saying, Oh, hey, Warner.
What about literally for net? He ran for 100 yards average 8.6 yards a carry.
Really, it's the It's the Panthers defense.
I mean, name one person on the Panthers defense.
E please, Shaq Thompson.
I mean, I mean, I know other names.
Grass grows mottoes.
Um, they drafted Derek Brown and they have capable guys, but those guys were also young and really not used to playing in the NFL at all.
I mean, they have safety Jeremy Chin.
Who knows if he's even gonna, you know, play play a huge role, so they have a lot of potential in that defense.
But when you turn the ball over four times and you have such a young defense and then Christian McCaffrey goes out sad for my fantasy team, gonna miss multiple weeks and all that happens, there's no way you're gonna win that game.
So Tampa Bay should have won that game.
They won that game.
Um, give me the Arizona Cardinals, Kyler Murray.
Is that good? I said yesterday, most dynamic quarterback in the NFL, despite Lamar Jackson being Tyler has the Canada of enormous talent to go along with the running ability.
So then e don't really wanna bring this up because Warren's not here, even though we should be.
And that is really, really just struck me in a way that is not fun to be around.
If Skylar's If all that you described about Kyler is true, why is Lamar Jackson number four in Kyler? Murray is like number eight on your time yesterday, I explained that yesterday to the point we're like, Yeah, true.
And we moved on.
I told you yesterday, see turnover, turnovers and other stuff, so I'll go listen back to that.
But I got Arizona Number eight.
He's only throwing one interception this year. Kyler.
He's one yesterday against San Fran as well.
And then last year he had 13 picks last year to 20 to pass and touchdown.
No, that's true.
Okay, although Number seven, I will say this if you had Kyler Murray in that ravensoffense, that is scary.
I think I think he would thrive more in the Ravens offense than Lamar.
Wouldn't the Cardinals offense right now? They both would be good, but Kyle would be better.
I don't even think we have a question.
The number seven Number seven, Give me the papers.
Cam Newton is his mighty God. He's playing.
So So what? The defense? No comment.
They got lit up by Russell Wilson that there's no question about that.
But offensively, I'm really impressive.
Josh Ring Things been really creative with what they decided to do with Cam Newton, and the Korean has been accurate off impressions.
I think the defense will get better.
Um, I don't expect things for this job.
35 on them every week, eh? So I got nothing for number seven.
Um, Alicia Veasey also say I'm gonna keep going.
Number sick. Yeah.
I might have something to say later, but keep going.
Number six, I get the Buffalo Bills at number six.
Um, Josh Allen has played remarkable so far this year.
Stefan Dig has been incredible is well, that they look like they have chemistry.
They trust each other.
Who needs a training camp for that often? Uh, training camp.
A little Worried about the defense? A little bit.
Like I said yesterday, going into the year.
And Okay, You know what? We got out that the defense we're gonna get from our in the crew.
It's the first right now.
It's gonna cost to my feelings to get together.
Last minute adjustment.
Number five, Pittsburgh Steelers.
It's still big Ben, and he has chemistry with guys like Chase Claypool du Jeu a little bit.
James Conner looks a lot better in the running game.
Now he has a real quarterback eso and give credit to the defense as well.
5 sacks granted on Jeff Schools Quarterback, but still a solid performance as well.
Not the signature Pittsburgh defense performance.
They played a phenomenal stopping Daequan Barclay from getting anything going running, in fact, so great job by the number four.
Uh, hey, um, Aaron Rodgers still a bad man.
Let me get the other way.
First Erin Jones had a pay me now game against Detroit.
I'm not impressed.
I'm not sold yet.
Um, are you sold on any team, though? I mean, except for the chief, I might even Yes, I'm gonna get to assume actually the top three teams or in the top 13 bio by a lot to me, I think I think there's a separator from number three now.
Number three number four is the local number one and two, like number five, for example, is a big, um, number three.
Give me Seattle.
The defense isn't as good as what I'm about to say, but they have.
They have that legion of boom type swag to them that Jamal Adams strengthen the table thinking have said yesterday, they're not nearly as good That defense let me get that out there again.
But they had that swag, that confidence in them that that that legion of boom defense, Russell Wilson is the second best quarterback on the face of the earth.
Right now, I'm gonna keep raving about all touch, the accuracy, the ball place where the touchy has on the ball.
So pretty Look this impeccable.
Um, and then, you know, you got a very underrated I feel wide receiver combo with D. K.
Metcalf and Tyler lock Chris Carson.
A swell in the running game is, Well, um, and the defense will be like I said, they there is going to be weeks like, uh, Sunday or weak to where the defense isn't exceptional, right? It's gonna be weeks with this defense.
You think this is the top 10 defense in the league because they use and confidence they had that legion of boom as type confidence in them.
I think that's what I could propel them.
Number two, give me Kansas City number one Baltimore.
They're gonna flip for me this week.
Baltimore has been the most impressive team in football this year for me in Kansas City while they are two.
And no, I'm not worried.
I'm just gonna say this about Kansas City.
He's been fine, right? I haven't seen that Kansas City like that really all offense yet.
I haven't seen that.
You can't stop me yet.
I haven't seen that.
We got Travis, Kelsey, Tyree, kill meco Hardman, Marcus Robinson.
Sammy walking Clyde over.
It's a little Damien Williams in a solid, often e.
I haven't seen that explosive Kansas City Chiefs offense quite yet, And I mean and let's just see what I'm gonna I should go home.
Got outplayed by a rookie in the first half of against the charges, and he was like, 9 18.
47 if I recall fact like that, but, uh, hold on fact checking that for you guys, but yeah, I just have not been impressed.
That's because our experts those teams, it die high.
But am I worried? No, I'm just saying I'm a little well, like, Come on now.
Wherever you guys see that, that's the Kansas City offense that we all know if they feel 27 47 he doesn't turn the ball over.
Still outplayed by a rookie for the first half of the game? Um, the offense hasn't I just haven't seen the explosiveness that we're accustomed to seeing.
Uh, Baltimore again.
Most impressive team by far to me this year.
They blew Cleveland album water.
Um, I'm hoping to the ball on both sides of the ball and then Houston, besides maybe the first quarter they blew the crap out of Houston's while showing them there's no real chance they have at least five quarterbacks duo in Marlon Humphrey and Markets Peters.
That defense is no joke.
Well, outside of those two, and it looks like they're not met.
I'm standing right now, at least Lamar Jackson playing well right now as well, so really quickly.
Got a road runs through it.
I got New Orleans nine, Tampa eight, Arizona seven.
New England six, Pittsburgh five, Buffalo four.
Green Bay three.
One Baltimore Uh, to answer your question, Warner, the only team that I have, like no real question mark different now, is Baltimore again? Most impressive team to me by far so far this season.
All right, so I have my own top 10.
But I want to respond to yours first.
The Chiefs are the best team in the league.
They should not be number two, first of all.
Secondly, you are correct.
The Chiefs have not had a like a bona fide win.
Like this team is really good.
This team is really good.
Who's gonna win between the two? Can we stop saying the Texans are any good? I mean, what? Besides DeShaun Watson is good on the Texans front.
I mean, do they have a good defense? No.
Do they have a good offense? No special teams.
I'd say you it's kind of average average special teams.
So I mean, beating the Texans, I don't think is uncomplicated anymore.
Because DeAndre Hopkins is gone.
Watson does not look the same.
And the defense is not, you know, like JJ watch Dave Yard, Clowney rushing the passer, stopping the run type defense.
It's kind of it's It's software now.
They still have what, but he's aging.
No more Clowney e.
No, I know, um, but the other teams in Baltimore face was Cleveland and we saw them just barely beat the Bengals and give up like to discredit my Chargers.
You cannot make that statement continue.
All I'm saying is all I'm saying is Cleveland is yet to prove anything.
In my opinion, they got smacked around by the Ravens and they gave up.
You know, we could say as much as we want.
I like Joe Burrow.
I think he has a good future in the NFL promising future.
But at the same time, you guys almost kind of blew it against the Bengals.
So, you know, it's it's It's just none of these teams have really faced a true true test.
Honestly, I might say the Chargers, um, we're a bigger test than the Browns were.
Um, just because I don't want to hear you say that as much as you discredit my charges.
I really don't want to hear you say that statement.
That sucks, because I'm saying that they have a better pass rush and they have just more talent on that defense.
Then Cleveland does, and they know how to use it.
They mean Cleveland has talent on defense, and they just don't know how to use it.
Um, where were the Niners. Shaw.
What were the Niners on that list? That rhetorical, Because you know why I didn't put him on the list is because of the injuries.
Really? Well, because of the injuries one number two, the injury 32 the impact they're gonna have You lost Richard Sherman for multiple weeks.
Put him on the I r.
You lost George Hill.
He's put you expected to be back this week.
Lost non Joey knock on wood.
That Joey, You lost Nick folk, though.
Why? Yeah, you lost with the other.
Defensive. Oh, shoot.
I forgot his name.
I also look back I'm talking about Yeah, You lost most of for another.
Defined a little time on him.
Don't really know the condition on Jimmy G.
So if you go into and let let's not count New York, I'm not gonna pick the Giants.
But don't count the Giants out.
Daniel Jones on a against a past worthless.
The Niners they don't have completed.
Okay, The Niners Nick Bosa was not the entire Niners pass rush and they take one pass rushers and they lost sick on Barkley.
Other injured player was a pass rusher.
But if I remember correctly and they have a very underrated you said it yourself, well, they have a very underrated I received records of Giants.
They would Darius Laden, Golden T and the crew.
And then so, yeah, don't count the Giants. I was online.
Sank a Nick Mullins for for the 40 Niners.
Who's the backup running back Jerick McKinnon or whatever his name is? Okay, you already are down one wide receiver from a preseason art training camp injury.
If you want to call it that.
Richard Sherman is not there.
I think that there is now depleted because you lost your best corner.
It's not like you're a Ravens Patriots.
You lose your best corner.
But you have so much great depth on your team that you can manage against, uh in an average week, and then you lost your two best pass rushers.
If I recall correctly and you lost the forest bucks in free agency, all I'm saying is don't count.
Don't cut the Giants out, and especially if, like all the guys that aren't major injuries missed this week, I think it's I think we're gonna see it, See the effects of that.
And that's why I put I didn't have them on the list.
If if you know what and I mean, look, when they weren't really healthy, they the Cardinals gave them nightmares.
Nightmares in Week one they cannot handle with Kyler, Murray, DeAndre Hopkins and the crew.
DeAndre Hopkins ate them alive in week on on the Cardinals defense.
Looks rather decent against against the San Francisco 40 Niners offense for most of the game.
This is the injury report for both the Giants and the San Francisco 40 Niners for the Giants sake, Ones out and the Sterling Shepard is questionable, so he's probably gonna play Shepherd a shepherd and a golden thing for for San Francisco.
Tevin Coleman is doubtful.
Nick bosses out.
Dee Ford is questionable.
George Kittle is questionable, and Jason very it's probably gonna get hurt again.
So all I'm saying is Nick Mullins looked like he might have some promise in the first year with Kyle Shanahan.
Um and then when? When you remember when Jimmy G Tours, A, C.
L and the Niners went and had the second pick in the draft and took Nick Bosa and that turned the whole franchise around because they got Jimmy G and Nick Bosa in the same and Dee Ford and all those guys and revamp the defense.
Remember that, right? Um, so we we see, we see that, uh, cashing hands offensive genius can game plan with and for anybody.
Um, now there's gonna be varying levels and varying success rates.
But it's the Giants.
Um, they're gonna win next week that the Giants don't have sake.
One, they have turnover prone Daniel Jones.
They have, I mean, a good receiving corps.
Yeah, but it's not like the pass rush is completely just nullified.
Now that Nick boasts out, Dee Ford is probably gonna play.
He's he's listed as questionable, and I mean, yeah, they're injured.
But this is an end of the season power rankings.
This is who you think is gonna be the best team at the end of the season going into the playoffs.
Not just who's the best team next week? No.
If that was the case, then we should just do one at the end of season before the playoffs.
No, you thistle is after week.
To who are the 10 teams that we like the most right now to obviously we like we like them to what? Go to the playoffs.
So you're so you're telling me that San Francisco with without Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman from the time being and injuries going left to right.
You like that 60 in the playoffs this year? Well, yeah, because most of those guys, basically everyone except for Nick Bos is gonna be healthy for the playoffs.
And there's an extra we know what determines.
The I R stint is not the whole season anymore, Sean.
Also, um, you do know there's an extra wild card team, so we're gonna see an extra team make the playoffs.
And I think San Francisco, despite all the injuries, I mean, they have the Giants next week.
I said they were.
I protected them to win that game, and you know the rest of their schedule.
I mean, shoot after after the Giants, they faced eagles.
What if the Eagles showing us absolutely nothing? Then they face the Dolphins, and then their first really true test is the Rams and the Patriots.
But who knows who's gonna be back by then? because that's that's three weeks away.
And so all I'm saying is they deserve a spot in your top 10.
Um, are we gonna move on? Morning.
We gotta go onto the next.
Let me Let me give you my top 10. Real quick.
I've got the Rams number nine.
The Saints number eight, the Buccaneers number seven, the Steelers number six.
The Bills number five.
The Niners number four, the Packers three.
Seahawks to Ravens one Chiefs.
Where the Arizona? Not in touch, then.
All right. Moving on.
Streets are also not in the top 10.
You wanna ask why? Lack of weapons State Warner we're talking of Never mind.
Next topic number.
Next up, Game three.
Tomorrow night of the Eastern Conference Game four.
The Eastern Conference finals between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat Warner is Gordon Hayward.
The X factor in this series.
We saw him missed the first two games he played in game three.
Uh, made an immediate impact.
Some things you want to see on the box score like essentially scored four points, but the impact at on the court for this team it see the X factor for Boston and yeah, 100%.
He plays well, the Celtics. They're gonna win.
If he plays poorly, the Celtics, they're gonna lose.
I mean, you saw them lose the first two games.
Then you saw them.
When? When? The third game.
And guess what? Gordon Hayward played the third game.
He didn't play the first two games.
See? Any correlation there? I do.
Um, Gordon, Hey, we're just hey means so much.
When? When? When? This is like a predominantly wing based league.
Um, Gordon Hayward is is a to a wing.
He can score. You can play defense.
I don't know why Shawn's looking at me like that, but you see, God, like, hey would come back and then he can.
He doesn't have the freshest legs in the world, but he can, um, you know, guard the perimeter heating guardian to those shooters by Miami.
And then offensively, he takes pressure off of guys like Tatum and Kemba Walker.
So I think he's the X factor for this series, right? Same person.
When I was preaching the Gospel last week and said that Boston is get away that Boston's hopes would based on Gordon Hayward's availability is that I said burb eight.
Um, they are neck and neck without Gordon Hayward and with Gordon Hayward.
They have the advantage of the same person I said, Well, that's not fair because Gordon Hayward is going to come back, you know, I got the reincorporate him, get him back.
It's gonna blow of of things.
So I don't want I don't want to hear that statement from you that that's garbage to me if we're being clearly honest.
But like I said last week without going in Hayward, they are neck and neck, almost dead, even in the clutch.
Miami has the advantage, but with Gordon Hayward hate them championship caliber level.
First off again and also really quickly said, uh, you might have the first leg.
So as it immediately after and say, Well, but he could help guard the perimeter.
The perimeter players of the mind Wait, let me finish that. Let you talk.
You complain about that yesterday, he so thank you are so right.
I complain about that.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
He has to chase around the shooters in Miami, but just that the freshest legs in the world.
That doesn't make any sense.
You've kind of contradicted yourself there.
But let me tell you why that makes sense.
All the leg injuries that he's dealt with, he doesn't have the freshest legs, but I think they're gonna be fresh enough, good enough to be able to help defend against some of those shooters.
But and back to my first initial point, you're the same person that said, Well, I don't think so, Sean, because you got to reincorporate him in the offense.
Dada is such a such a such a so either.
Just admit that I'm right and I proved wrong for you or just let me finish.
It's not that you proved me wrong because I said it's going to take time to reincorporate him.
But he's still the X factor.
I told you, I told you it's not.
I told you it wasn't.
I'll tell you exactly what I said.
I'll go into it if I remember.
What episode Awas.
I'll go into the things before the game to before Game two, A must win game.
Um, I'll go listen to it, but I remember Birthday and I said, No, it's not.
It's not going to take time because he's one selfish, all star caliber players or start caliber players taking to find him and Campbell.
They're both very unselfish.
Chattanooga wasn't a NEW it wasn't gonna take time to reincorporate them in the offense, and Gordon Hayward knows his limitations as well.
But back to all those saying when he does for this Boston Celtics team is unquestionable.
He can be that all fall guy that you need in the game.
Where can I mean? Tatum and JB Jaylen Brown ****.
The combined for 50 three points, I believe.
I think Tatum had 25.
No payment, 25 maybe at 26 51 point.
Uh, and when he plays this, well, when those guys play that well now and if you start basically I'm saying this because I'm I'm kind of losing my thought process here.
Boston is so dangerous, and they have MBA JB, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum Price on the floor.
Or are you can go market smart import placement for one of those.
So like, let's say Camba and Tatum are Campbell and Jalen Campbell and smart and rare and because because markets Marte's been hidden from the perimeter in this series in the playoffs as well.
Gordon Hayward could be off ball.
You can't leave Gordon Hayward on the wink open on what he does.
Is he facility? A the floor? Well, because Jason Tangible he's improved.
He's had to improve his playmaking ability and getting others involved.
He's not Playmaker Jane.
Browse on a playmaker, Marcus.
Campbell does not His strength, right? Gordon Hayward is really that that guy if let me say it.
This one, right? Did you just say Jason Tatum is not a playmaker playmaker? Like getting other players involved.
Okay, so I'm gonna I'm gonna use an example Golden State like they're flying up when everybody was all people.
Iggy Katie Draymond.
If Grandma was the heart and soul of that team eggy was that do everything type of guy, that basically whatever you ask of him facilitating helping on the defensive side of the floor that will do it for you.
Knock down perimeter shots.
He'll do it for you.
American cases create his own shot.
Do it for you and Steph.
Katie were the best two players, right? for this Boston team.
If Marcus Smart is the heart and soul, Gordon Hayward is that Iguodala type ish player.
Not not the same defender.
A Ziggy don't want to disrespect a gondola, But the type of role He has his team and he knows his role.
He plays very well.
So I saw this outcome.
I picked them instead of rolling.
Um, yeah, you had.
You had Tatum Brown Smart and Dan O in Kemba combined for 92 of their 117 points.
And if you have Gordon Hayward scoring at the clip that he, you know, he could score, which is, you know, 20 plus points a game, All of a sudden you have a guaranteed 100 points every game.
So I mean, you definitely, um you've got guys who can put the ball in the hole and you've got other guys that can sometimes with the ball in hole.
When that works, it works, and you're gonna win the game.
And it's a simple is that score more than your opponent.
And if you have scores, then you're gonna score the ball more.
So let's move on to the next topic here.
A hand numb next up.
Um, Warner were two weeks in, and we kind of touched on this a little bit.
Our top 10 breaking Which team has impressed you the most in worried in the most Lett's gett apace on this one? The team that has impressed me the most.
Um, I've got to say I'm gonna say the Rams.
I mean, I know the Cardinals were having a nice year.
She was having a nice year.
The Bills offense is finally seeming to click, but yeah, I gotta say, the rams, man, um, they beat the Cowboys.
Then they beat the Eagles.
And I know those aren't too spectacular winds, but, I mean, it doesn't matter how you beat your team as well. That doesn't matter.
Um, but what they're doing right now, I think is impressive.
And I wasn't expecting them to to play kind of this well, this cohesively.
And they have definitely surprised.
You know, I don't think they're necessarily contender, but I put him at number 10 for a reason.
Um and and they've impressed me the most.
The team that has disappointed me the most gotta go with Minnesota.
I mean, we smacked him around in the first game.
They really had no chance.
They were they had was what, like, 34 to 10 or something at the end of the first half.
And then they started scoring against the prevent defense.
Sean, go re watch the game.
I know he gave up 34 but it was against the previous defense.
And then they kind of got smacked around by the Colts, 28 to 11.
So that Stefon Diggs loss was really big and they decided to trade him to It's not even like, you know, he opt.
He requested a trade or he left in free agency or something.
They traded him for a first round pick and some other picks.
And and Kirk Cousins has got to make that work.
They got Justin Jefferson.
They got Adam feeling.
You know, you still have Kyle Rudolph.
You have to really, really nice backs and Dalvin Cook and Alexander Madison and then defensively.
Yet don't kneel hunters out, but you have unique in dog way.
Um, he got shut down by the Packers tackles and we've won.
But he finally showed against the Colts who don't have a bad offensive line in their own right.
How good and of a pass rusher he could be.
And you've got you know, you've got to nice safeties.
And while you're corners air kind of young and fresh and not really a customer NFL life yet, um, they still have potential.
So, Minnesota, I mean, the Packers might run away with this division, and it might not even be close, which would then open up another wild card spot for a team like, you know, fill your Dallas.
Whoever doesn't win that division or or a South team like the West is getting three teams at the league.
I wouldn't be surprised if they get off for for being quite honestly, that's how atrocious the NFC the the only The only thing is with that is all four of those teams still have to play the rest of the three twice.
And so I think that's gonna end up tanking somebody's record and whether that's the, um, I think it's either gonna be the Cardinals of the Rams, and that team is not gonna end up making the playoffs.
And we're gonna have a, uh, in fear, your team make the playoffs, even though they have a better record, if you know what I mean.
Yeah, I'm gonna well, really quickly touching a ramp point.
That's excellent argument.
You make their, um Chamakh they I'll say this.
I thought, Well, Chamakh Day is getting like the Brad Stevens treatment.
What I mean by that is Brad Stevens had an excellent couple of years.
I was like, in one wins coach here like most of the Fleet, and then has a regression year when we all thought they should have been arguably better.
And then everybody's like, Oh, crap, you can't coach now then look at what they do.
Only year and everybody's so surprised I forgot the guy Can Coach Sean McVeigh is the exact same way.
First couple of years crazy.
Go to the Super Bowl, Have a regression year with a lot of people, still picked him to go back to the Super Bowl.
And they start to a no with Jared Golf out playing Carson Wentz for the first two weeks, that defense was solid.
Um, and people are like, Oh, hey, Sean McQuay He's a good coach.
Yeah, yeah, you didn't realize.
Yeah, it za really big blow to any team when you lose your most dynamic offensive player.
They lost Todd Gurley.
They lost him after the Super Bowl.
They lost him, actually, during the playoff run to the Super Bowl, right? They lost.
He he lost his knee and they lost him just like that.
Yeah, but I'm a stay consistent.
I said earlier on Baltimore.
What do you mean? You stick with that? Um so the way they played on both sides of the Baltin really impressive for me.
And I'm also stay consistent with my least most impressive team. Well, insane.
I had High Poster this team.
They have not looked well on either side of the ball.
Defensively, Uh, is what kind of worries me a little bit more offensively.
Kind of predicted it, especially with Michael Thomas not being there in their defense, though, the Raiders can probably put up 30 on almost anybody the Raiders have.
The Raiders have a really sneaky offense.
They have a terrible defense, which is why the same should have won that game.
But the Raiders open.
Keep it office under.
But you know what? Over.
And you know why we picked book we both picked under because we expect the New Orleans at it will contain that.
That, let's say, Oakland offense, that Raiders offense And they failed to do that.
So that's another reason why I got Oakland.
I mean, Oakland, uh, New Orleans as my least impressive.
Only thing we just say negative about the Rams.
Like I said earlier.
E think it's It's our production meeting schedule.
No, I don't wanna I don't want to get to, uh, that I want to get to, like, on on the boat yet.
Oh, it's about to leave.
I don't wanna hop on it yet.
Um, so yeah. All right.
Go ahead. What's the next topic? My thought there.
My mike got muted.
Um, any chance that Denver is gonna be able to beat the Lakers this year? Any chance, Like like 33%? Uh, seriously, over.
Uh, I'm gonna keep it short.
Sweet to the point the Lakers have the brooms in their hands.
All they have to do is sweep the dust into the dust pan.
Basically, what I'm saying, if you catch my ****ogy or whatever, it's over.
Just finished the job really quickly.
No team has ever came back in the n B A L East from 30 deficit.
LeBron has never lost a Siri's went up 31 All, I'm gonna say, real quick.
Short to the point.
Great job. Denver.
Heck of a postseason run.
I think that's over.
It is over, right? Go home.
Pack it back tonight.
Call your wives.
Call your family member.
Siri's is over at the most five games.
So they went tonight.
The Siri's is over in four, but if Denver went tonight, he reaches over.
Pack your bags and it's a job.
L A gets a broom, the broom in your hand based on the deep into the just stand.
And there's the job.
Lakers win tonight.
The series is over.
Um, Syria has done no chance for for the Nuggets.
Cast a one quick thing really quickly.
The Siri's like you could see how demoralize Denver looked, and I know the resilient, but most cases when you hit a game winning.
But like let's get Boston when o g.
And if L G N N o b misses that shot in the Boston Toronto Siris in Game three.
Boston probably sweeps them right.
They probably sweep Toronto because in Boston goes up 30 and m Toronto have the momentum anymore.
Hit that shot and you could see how demoralized them.
It was like way claimed Way.
Clawed our way back, and we still couldn't get the job done.
This is Yeah, I wouldn't even be surprised that I just took it to six.
It's not going seven games.
Um, I think if the Nuggets win tonight, they might be able to sneak another game.
But don't get too hyped up about it.
Oh, the Nuggets of 12 in a row.
The Lakers also did.
Um, yeah, there's there's no shot the Nuggets air done.
It was a good season, but it's over.
Yeah, seriously is over, please.
Like just spends the job you have again brooms in your hand.
Grab the dust and finish the job.
Alright, last couple ones.
Uh, let's jump to our fantasy update.
That was very quick.
Short to the point.
Hold on, hold on. I do want to say something, though.
Let me just read you my injury report for this past week.
I'll do that instead.
Um, for those of you who don't know, we got to draft defensive players this year.
Pretty fun. Twist on it.
Um, Sean put up to 40 on me.
So, um, my injury report where he mustered this time Chris McCaffrey, this time Davante Adams left early.
D J H Arc left early.
Courtland Sutton Gone ir Uh, Nick Bosa, Candy Clark.
Phillip Lindsay Jamison Crowder.
So, um, all I'm saying is I would have a pretty darn good chance if those guys played a full game, but, you know, kudos after D. K.
Metcalf caught that touchdown, texted China, said it's over.
Move on to next week.
Yeah, I'm gonna need to have toe.
I'm gonna have toe pick ups.
Um, scouting genius and who I think is going to explode over the next few weeks if I wanna have any shot at the championship game.
Yeah, uh, ish, Yeah.
I mean, both of my running backs, though.
Both of my running bags.
Um have hey, you remember that Zeke trade where I got McCaffrey and sudden, Yeah, it looks like you won that trade because sons on the I.
McCaffrey's out for multiple weeks.
So when are you ready for the NFL update? Yes.
You're talking about our picks, right? Yep.
So really got him right here.
So we're gonna tell him upon the show.
All right, Tell you.
So, Warner, I'm gonna read the scores.
Can you just tell me the under oath? Thank you.
Games that we did.
Bengals in Brown with big packers.
Lions already has a one up.
We did Seattle, New England.
We did, uh, Raiders, Saints.
We did that? Yeah.
Chargers, cheese, Cowboys, Falcons.
Patriots, Seahawks and so on.
So, which one do we start off with, Warner? Well, yeah.
First game of the week.
All right. Browns, Bengals.
Warner picked the Bengals with the over I pick.
The Browns would be over with the over under Waas over 45 the Browns one.
So that's two and over.
Me wanted a one and one for Warner.
All right. The Bengals gave it a ride.
I was hoping Are you Yeah.
Uh, Warner, what's next? Alright, um, let's go to Green Bay and Detroit.
Um, John, uh, Green Band Detroit.
Dang it, uh, if I lose that, I wanted the lion so in for just, like the heady reasons, But all seriousness, the lion's got blew the crap out.
Thank God they covered me over.
So I get some points, Warner.
Yeah, you're welcome for scoring 40 plus, but But it is not knotted up at 321 is we're both three and one right now.
Warner was the next game.
Next time Seattle and New England see how the wind the wind blowing.
Let's see that. That's long gone.
So Seattle 1 35 31 or Q uh, because my thing, that stuff, What's the over under on that game? Give me a second.
Unless my thing loads.
And my load it, uh, the over under was 45 only both 50.
Hunter, We're now both at four and two.
All right, what's the next one? All right, let's go to, um let's let's go to the charges Chiefs.
But luckily for me, I was smart and tried to tell you that Patrick Mahomes place at his worst against the chargers.
Uh, chase 1 23 20 the over under with 47.
I went under, so I get two points.
50 correctly picked Kansas City, but he went with the over.
I'm now take them to Warner is now five and 31 he should have.
Maybe that's just one time, though.
Um, let's go through the next game.
Um, see, Raiders, Saints, Inter Saints.
Okay, we're both idiots for this one.
Um, well, we both correctly picked the winner, but we both we both failed freaking miserable miserably at the, uh, over under.
Waas take 48 the Raiders won 34 to 24.
They went over by 10 points, but that would have been 10 points.
I would love to get.
So we both got one point.
I'm out seven and three.
Warner is now six and four.
Are we got two more? Two more.
Let's go to the next game.
Um, Rams Eagles.
I would, uh, it's all good now.
I mean, Ram Eagles over under 46.
We will pick the under on that one, because we don't think either one a spectacularly impressed with the Rams offense, and we won.
But then they just obliterated the over under and blew the crap the dog crap out of the Eagles and beat them 37 to 19 obliterating the over, Um, we both picked Los Angeles.
You got that to Warner.
So I'm 84 year now, Uh, 75 Um, Falcons cowboys.
Okay, so the cowboys, when they get the over somehow So Warner gets two points because he correctly picked the winner somehow and got the over.
So I got to wear.
Nodded up after week one.
We're both nine and five after week one.
Warner, how you feeling so far, you don't take the package that you really should have.
You are you are.
You were saw me because of the air in the whole Aaron Rodgers thing.
That was last week.
We did a little more topic yesterday, but when we were when we were talking about the prime Brady Aaron Rodgers, Lamar Rogers.
So, um, that was last week.
I'm feeling good.
I'm feeling good.
This kind of makes up for makes up for the fantasy feeling that's left in my mouth.
I said, I'm gonna have toe.
I'm gonna have toe come up with some crucial Cem Cem Huge free agency pickups.
Actually, I think the Evan White linebackers in the Bucks, I think, and to drop.
And he he should get fantasy points because of the tackles tackles.
He dropped him because of because he had, like, three linebackers on his bench.
Yeah, shouldn't have dropped.
Devon White, though, should have dropped Devon White.
But also, here's my only.
Here's my only problem.
I've Devin Busch of dead and white, so I have to like shooting between one of the best tackling linebackers.
You only get one linebacker, one linebackers like, hey, but somehow you get like three.
You can have three edge rushers and one linebacker, three edge rushers, but you're going to get like What the heck, uh, fantasy.
Do we have time for one more topic? Warner.
All right, let's do one more.
Let's end this show on a bank.
Actually, no. We're going to the Cam.
Newton wants to go ahead and you introduced All right, John, how impressed were you with Cam Newton so far this season? Last game? This season? All the same.
I'll tell you how impressed I was.
No, I'm happy for him.
I knew we could do it all along.
Um, my only question was my only question.
My only question My only question was Is the shoulder going to be healthy or you gonna be able to throw the football well and yeah, he has clearly has the talent.
He won the Heisman.
He was the number one overall pick.
And he was overarching.
Lee successful with the Panthers for a reason.
He is a really, really, uh I don't know if I'd said really, really good quarterback anymore, But he has a good quarterback.
He's a capable starter.
And if that arms healthy, he's gonna play well, especially if he's on the Patriots team with Josh McDaniels and Bill Belichick.
So I wouldn't say I'm impressed, but I would say that I am.
I'm happy for him.
I'm glad he's he's feeling good, he's having fun.
And he is, um, he's making plays and and I know he enjoyed it.
Just watch him on the sideline.
Full smiles, even with all those weird outfits.
Also also, can we talk about Bill Belichick and those ads? I mean, why is he doing those? I mean, come on, Bill.
I mean, like, your whole thing has been I'm no fun, Bill.
I just game plan and win Super Bowls.
You all are Saudi because I have to Handsworth.
And now you're doing subway abs and ads and cutting off people's sleeves on TV.
The That's his parented, Uh, hands it out right now.
I'm saying all I'm saying is I think Cam Newton is rubbing off on him a little bit.
Uh, I'm just saying that keeping shirt sleep to the point.
Um uh, I think camps played in the M V P caliber level to the first two weeks of the season.
Um, so let's get credit where credit's due to Camden.
And so far this season, um, if he had weapons, though, that just went Oh, my God.
That was That would be lethal.
But have been Arizona or Baltimore.
That the nightmares, like we're in opposing defense.
That is ultra violent. Scary.
So I did their ultraviolet scary like that.
No, I didn't like that at all.
Um, let's let's go on to the next topic.
Ah, Sean, we saw the Raiders just smack up all over the same defense.
Um, do you think they could make the playoffs? Because I might have an opinion.
I'm very opinionated on this one with Okay, with the current playoff, uh, structure structure, they can.
Here's my only problem, though.
In a crowded A F C.
This kind of top heavy buffalo, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, I think Cleveland they get together, kid could sneak in there.
Whoever gonna make it out of the sea out.
Yeah, definitely not the Texans.
Um, did you say, did you say it's Did you say yes? You think they're gonna make the playoffs? I'm not.
I haven't gone to my toe.
I'm not done yet.
Here's the thing.
FC is very top heavy.
Okay, So what I mean by that is it's the top three or four teams and then like what, Like you looking like, Yeah, they're gonna make the playoff.
And then after those top four teams.
You like it? Maybe Maybe. Maybe.
No. No, no, no, no.
Listen, the worst teams in the NFL are mostly in the A F C.
You got the Jets, the Dolphins, the Texans right now. Jacksonville.
Feel good story.
They're not gonna do anything come playoff time.
Denver doesn't have a quarterback or the number one receiver because throw the M V P talks on the window.
So my point is, Yes, they can, will they? I don't know, because you've got obviously Casey.
Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Buffalo, New England. That's five.
And then you got one of the F C South.
And then you got Cleveland my Chargers and yourself battling for that Cleveland my Chargers and yourself.
The Raiders battling for the number seven spot.
So you said Kansas City, Kansas City, Pittsburg, Buffalo, Buffalo, New England and then Tennessee.
And it's a three team race.
Probably the number seven spot.
If they right the ship.
Cleveland, Oakland, In the Chargers, you face the charges twice over you.
Yes or no? Do I think they will? Yes.
Can I ask you a question? Right.
You can ask you to Yes or no questions.
Do you think that e questions? E 02 Yes or no questions, E.
I just told you they'll be right there.
They will be battling with the other two teams.
Can I ask you? Can I ask you to Yes or no questions? Does Cleveland your opinion right? The ship.
And like, get it going by the end of season.
Yes or no? Oh, man.
Um, yes or no? What do you mean, get it going like being contention for the playoffs? Or like the playoffs? I think Country yes or no? Keep it.
Yes or no? Yeah, I think they dio okay, Does do the charges continue to start Justin Herbert? Or do they go with Tyrod? Wait, let me finish.
Or do they go with Tyrod and they go back? Herbert, towards the end, I think they should definitely starting next week, Will They don't know.
I think they probably will start next week, But I think you definitely need to start next week.
Oh, is the option ARB guess a Okay? No, they won't.
I don't think they're gonna be out one of those two teams.
If you had said that Cleveland does not right the ship, which is fair and they do Option B, which is a charter.
And I am definitely scared about having Tyrod come in and fail out.
Hirai, come back.
You don't You don't know what's gonna happen if you start Tyrod Taylor and then purposely e got pinched and then he starts losing.
And then you have to throw him back in there, right? And then also like, that's gonna mess with Said this yesterday on NFL Weekly.
We I'm saying the Chargers, we do not come even close to beating Kansas City.
It Tyrod Taylor is out there.
And here's the number one reason why we're not confident Tyrod Taylor's ability to be a quarterback toe win games and trust them and be aggressive with them.
You can be aggressive of justice.
Yeah, What you all did was he just threw him out there said Hey, kids, show me what you got.
We're gonna open up the playbook.
Let's see what you got there, right? We're gonna open playbook with Taylor.
They think they know what they have.
They have a game manager and they limit him to that.
So basically what I'm saying is if you said no to the Browns one, if you say no, it's very It's very possible Go.
But if you say no and then you said the second option, which I'm scared, that is gonna happen for my charges, one I would say yes, but I think I think Cleveland will right the ship.
There's too much God darn talented.
They play the way they did offensively, at least against Cincinnati.
I think they'll be the manage in the top heavy a f c.
And then if my Chargers go with Herbert for the person for the future, I think they will get over them.
So I think Oakland, as currently constructed on the three teams, if those if those two situations happen like the two positive one.
If it goes negative, then I think I think about, say, Oakland.
The Raiders will get in last Vegas.
Oakland, like that sounds with the Las Vegas Raiders.
That sounds weird. Coming out my mouth.
Answer your question.
Fine, no, if the positive outcomes happen.
But if it goes south, then yes, because there's nobody else I think that could contend with them for that number seven spot.
You're about to say some crap, aren't you? Heck, no, man.
They're not making the playoffs.
They they have no defense, no defense.
Who's on that defense on name? A person on that defense.
Ueno Damon on that.
Oh, a guy who arguably was drafted.
Talent click Callin Barrel The oh ah, pass rusher from Clemson, whose underperformed throughout his career, who's not even the best pass restaurant.
Uh, anyways, that you prove my point. Thank you.
They have no defense.
Um, and you know, we were talking about Derek Carr being one of better quarterbacks, um, back when he had Cooper and Crabtree and a decent rushing attack.
And, you know, I still have faith in you, Derek Carr.
If he limits the check downs and can extend, you know, can lengthen the field in terms of like throwing balls 2030 40 yards downfield to guys like Tyrell Williams, Henry rugs and all those deep threats on that team, we now say that they do have underrated receiving corps.
They're going toe, have success.
Offensively, they have a nice.
They have probably a top 10 running back and Josh Jacobs.
And there's the same defense wins championships.
And you saw you saw the 40 Niners make it.
You thought you saw the Niners make it to the Super Bowl last year, and you saw the chief's defense step it up later in the game and let their offense go out and do it.
So the chief's defense was a big part because Patrick Mahomes was turning the ball over.
He through, what, two interceptions in the Super Bowl? Um, I know he at least through one, but I think he threw two.
So defense wins championships and you're you're not gonna be successful when you don't have a defense really quickly.
This when I say this one thing, you're spot on with the defensive part.
But again, that's why I mentioned FC is very, very top heavy, and they're seven spots now.
They're in the NFC.
There's no flipping way.
They make the playoffs in the crowded NFC, which is making it like there.
They're not doing it.
You can hold me to this when it comes Tuesday after Week 17 and we see the final playoff picture and you see the Las Vegas Raiders in that number seven spot.
I'm not saying that you can throw it.
I'm just saying, I'm just saying they are in contention for that.
No, they're not.
Who could forget it? Especially, Especially if the negative outcomes happen for for Cleveland. My Chargers.
Who was going to take? Okay, The Chargers.
What about Indy? We haven't been I mean, they just No, they just kind of mill Rivers is gonna I've seen it firsthand, Philip Rivers, and an important game is gonna blow the game.
Okay, that's that's fair.
Um, I they're not gonna make the playoffs on, um, You can hold me to it.
Hold Whenever the packers play terrible, you always throw it in my face. Throw it in my face.
My wife, So Oh, God, you can I'm inseparable.
I'm in the Central Packers fan.
I'm an insufferable Packers fan.
You know what? You know what? I'm right there when Green Bay loses, this is this is what I mean.
That's why you pick the lions.
Because you just wanted to be able to go e just what way really quickly before we go off air.
I just envision myself coming on the show yesterday.
And you know how Stephen A is when the cowboys lose e.
Oh, I just visited myself doing that.
Yesterday's show and then Detroit had they had to ruin it for me.
