Matt has it lets you in yet.
We're about we may have to Metz today, so Oh, okay.
That is my a k a boss.
And of course, he's in the orange.
Hey, man, how we doing today? Well, I thought we were talking sec football.
That's okay. That's okay.
Waken really talk Whatever you want to, we'll kind of go through a picks quick.
If you want todo you want talks, um, sec football or a college football with You know what? You know, I would I really would, But I believe it or not hate college sports really e could understand that I honestly, I've always kind of wondered if it's because I'm from New York were like College sports is isn't really as big.
You know, we have so many like professional teams and things like that.
You know, we have nine professional teams here, so it's and then, of course, unless you really root for, like, Syracuse, there's nothing else to really root for.
It's not like, you know, down South.
It's not like down South in places like that were, you know, you got big college places, this literally Syracuse and Fordham.
Maybe it was George.
Fordham has a basketball team, and they were pretty good.
They used to be good back in the day before my time, of course, But but sorry.
My wife told me me **** in the chair was way too loud.
Anyways, so, Matt Connie, Connie, Matt, Connie is actually Anthony, but his last name sounds like Connie.
So we're going with it.
That's what he likes.
And we're because I know that.
So Zach's right, Matt, What we usually do is actually John Henry here.
Hey, all the games of Sunday and Monday.
Obviously, we don't do this to about Saturday night, so we don't get that really talk about Thursday game.
So we started off with the Philadelphia Eagles that you could give us your input, that you want to just kind of talk, whatever you like.
Connie, mentally linemen in high school and almost colleges who he had about me.
So while we're at work at Tractor Supply, we always talk about these different things and how I love Kentucky and how he loves Tennessee, because that's where he's from the big loser.
But while I try to have these discussions like, man, did you see that great kid? Can you believe he did that? And he's like, Oh, man, he had a wonderful time because the line did this and they shifted here.
The defense align with stunt, and they picked it up perfectly.
The running back picked up this guy like who even talks about that stuff, so that's very knowledgeable on that stuff.
And then it has a really good input on that.
So happy you're on the show with us today, even though we're catching for work and you're leaving everything behind for us.
Thank you, by the way, but we're taking care of business.
So first game on the list was the Philadelphia Eagles versus the Washington Whatever you want to name them now? The guys that were on the show, we had Alex, Listen, you know, last week, one. Yes, you are.
That was week one a week.
Way had Matt, who may be on here later.
Other Matt, not you.
He said he had some family.
Maybe on about 2030 minutes later, Corey jumped on with the C money for a while, and Steve and Mark were also with us.
So the first game, the reason why Steve jumped in was because Steve wanted to rub it in, uh, wise cheese cheese head face about the Detroit in Green Bay game.
Steve actually pick Detroit in that game.
Everyone else picks screen Bay on.
Of course, Green Bay did win.
Connie, Let's hear something from there that you took away from what you were happy about.
And also, let's hear your pick to real quick because I did go with the package in this game.
I just think that they're kind of just the better team.
Overall, I have the winning that division this year, anyway, um, you know, it's it's kind of what you almost expect out of, ah, Packer Lines game.
Honestly, I don't know exactly what the final score was, If I can find it.
Really? Yeah, it z kind of what I expect.
I mean, like everybody else in the NFL, we had some injuries coming out of that one with Davante Adams.
So, you know, obviously you kind of look at that because when you look in the package, that's obviously their star wide receiver star player besides Aaron Rodgers.
But listen, if Aaron Jones is gonna do what he did in that game the rest of the year, the Packers might be the best **** team in football because that was that was unbelievable.
I think he had about 250 all purpose yards s or something around there.
If not, it was close.
You know, he had the two rushing touchdowns.
I believe he might have even had a receiving touchdown.
I'm not 100% positive, but Erin Jones was given to him.
Erin Jones was absolutely unbelievable in that game.
So if they're if they're gonna be like that.
They're definitely gonna be a bigger problem.
And I you know, I love it because, I mean, it kind of sucks for me.
I did trade away Erin Jones in a fantasy league for Dalvin Cook, but it was for Dad, but it was for Dalvin Cook.
You know, I kind of I still think I still think I'll come out on top, but, uh, I like I like the fact that Erin Jones is getting involved early and often because we kind of saw last year that, uh, in the beginning of the year, they didn't really involve him too much.
It was still all the Aaron Rodgers show.
And then, as the year went on, the kind of guy Iron Jones more involved.
So I like where he's trending for sure.
Trying to get it to pull up here.
Now I've got it loaded and just took forever.
That's Adrian Peterson.
Give me the Packers.
Matt, you wanna go ahead and give your input or talk about how the line played? Yeah, I picked Detroit in that game.
Actually, I had Detroit picked as a upset in that game and, you know, it goes back the offensive line.
Matt Stafford was on his back four times in that game.
Running game was atrocious.
You know, the lines just couldn't do anything. It really goes.
You know, one thing that I really wanted to touch on the night is the lack of preseason.
You've really seen it this week, You know, all of the injuries.
Excuse me? You know, just undisciplined play across the board.
It was really a lot of lack of preseason.
All these people out here they're saying, you know, in the preseason they don't understand what that preseason really is about.
Uh, but yeah, to your point County on Erin Jones.
I mean, he had let's see 222 132 yards, three touchdowns combined.
You know, the dude's a base, uh, fantasy nightmare.
If you don't have him go straight for yeah, you know, trading away like I just Yeah, not a smart for him.
Not away him away.
I'm hoping Moose gets in here.
He talked about wanting to join their unwrapped sports as well, but I don't see his name in here.
Just get in with us talk with us, but anyway, so it's still my status.
My computer's general slow actually try to download O.
B s about three hours ago, and I think it might still be slowing me down a little bit.
But it's it's hard to really this season.
Before the season started, everyone was just straight up anti Aaron Rodgers, and I think already he's proven that to be fake.
Uh, the dude threw for so many yards the first game.
Honestly, you almost there for 400 yards.
But like I said, I can't get anything pull up.
The final score is 42 21 Green Base now to an old Detroit going to they find a way that lose.
But even I want.
Matt was saying their offensive line is struggling there.
They just signed a P last last week who had, like, 19 carries for almost 100 yards.
Eso they don't even know who.
Really, they don't have a face.
Detroit does now.
I love Matt Stafford.
I tried to get him in every league just because I think he just throws tons and tons of e fall over here.
But let's keep showing the highlights, and I don't want to see that.
I want to see stuff, but I just think Detroit somehow Detroit always has good things, but they find ways to lose.
Like if I ever were to get into gambling, I would never put money on them this year.
If he had seven character for 41 here, John actually ran him, which can carry on.
Johnson was supposed to be on his way out.
Swift is still playing hurt.
Actually, he led them and catch it as well, with five.
But that is Stafford throwing the ball around everywhere.
Stafford threw for 23 passes of 244 yards with two touchdowns.
And for some reason, it will not load factor states.
And I'm sure whenever my other Matt gets in there, Cheesehead will have to come back and talk about the Packers winning this because obsessed with Green Bay.
Okay, here we go.
Aaron Rodgers, 18 of 3240 yards, two touchdowns.
No interceptions, really.
Not a great stat line, but of course, a great place.
Erin Jones Onley rushed 18 times.
I say only he had 168 yards, so he averaged 9.
3 yards a carry.
Mediocre is crazy.
Even Jamal Williams.
Rushed eight times for 63 yards for 7.
9 average yards per carry.
And Rogers average six yards.
I'm just playing on that one.
Gas. Calm down. Uh, let's see here.
Yes, Erin Jones did have a touchdown receiving as well.
Four catches for 68 yards and a touchdown, so I don't know how many fantasy points he had, but I think he had 50 in my league.
50., my goodness.
That Oh, Aaron Rodgers even caught a pass.
How did that happen? Uh, interesting development.
Yeah, All right.
So, Well, that God is there.
Um, Matt also picked Green Bay, I think Green Bay, Corey, Pick Green Bay.
Mark, pick Green Bay.
So we're all there except for Steve.
I'm gonna try to move on over to the next game.
This computer may not be working.
Well, maybe grab my phone, trying to do all those by the next game we had because New York Giants versus the Chicago Bears.
We're all across the board with the bears.
What about you, Connie? Yeah, I went with the Bears as well.
I just think that the Giants are just not good enough yet.
I mean, and you know, it's like I said, being from New York, I I see a lot more Giants jets than probably a lot of people showed or want. Thio.
So, you know, obviously the big story coming out of that one is the is the terrible say, Kwan injury, of course, which, you know, just sucks for the NFL in general because he is one of the, you know, elite backs in the league.
You're very exciting to watch.
But, you know, if I had to buy stock in one New York team, you know, talking strictly football, obviously it would be the Giants.
Like I I truly do like the way that they're trending.
I mean, Then again, I don't think you can really do worse than the Jets, but, you know, the Giants were turning up, you know, we didn't really expect a lot out of their defense this year.
Uh, they're not playing bad whatsoever.
You know, Daniel Jones is kind of proving everybody wrong that boot him and made fun of him at the draft for that that giant selection and you know they had a chance to win it late.
You know, obviously they got that.
You know, the Bears got that little tip interception and the game.
But other than that, the Giants were kind of going down the field hoping Thio tie up the game.
And you know another thing you can look at in a positive for the Giants as well as there was 1/4 and one late in the game where the, uh, it bounced off of somebody in the offensive lineman caught it for a first down off the tip.
And, you know, for a young defense like the Giants are, that's really that's a degrading play.
That's absolutely terrible, that XYZ something that killed the momentum and everything like that.
But, you know, they came back, forced another 4th and 4th and whatever, and the Bears went for the field goal and didn't get it, so they had the chance to win.
But, you know, it was it was a Zim.
Press it as a loss could possibly be, Honestly, the email the Giants are going to I feel like they're completely different Oh, into than some teams.
Oh yeah, definitely the Jets.
Let's just I mean in a foot right there.
I mean, the Giants are losing, but gaining the Jets are losing and failing and losing their just losing their nothing but losers.
As I was watching Rex, Rex Ryan, I think, get up Tuesday and it was saying, You know, last week I thought the Jets lost so bad, I thought, Well, the good thing is, there's no way you could lose better than you did Week one.
And they did it. They did.
I mean, the Giants, you know, I'm looking at even through the scores.
You know, you lost like Juan pretty early.
Not super early, but I think he still had almost 10 rushes before he got hurt.
The score at halftime with 17 nothing.
You come back and answer 13 unanswered points against Chicago that I mean, you see them not quitting.
You see them building, you see them pushing forward.
I think Jason Garrett from the Cowboys will have an offense that I still look decent, so I mean, I can accept that loss if that makes sense.
What I see on this game as Travis Key was 18 of 28 only 190 yards, two touchdowns plus two interceptions.
What would have been really bad Giants came back and win this game in Travis Key.
This would have been again that you're thinking.
Hey, maybe we need to start. Hey.
Yes? Yeah. Phone.
Sit on the bench right there.
And I mean, you're right, Travis Key.
You know, they've got a very short should have a very shortly showing him.
Yes, The one thing I really want to talk about this New York's defense.
You know, you talked about the four sacks and two pigs, but you look tfl you know, they had 70 FLS they were getting after the ball.
But Martinez had a great game.
In my opinion, for a little known player, Uh, they're they're gonna be a team to deal with in the NFC, East or NFC.
Least whatever you wanna call it nowadays, E keep talking about about my boys.
Okay, we can get, but I'm excited to talk about that again.
I mean, right back to the same issue.
Pretty cities in matters.
You know, this game right here, another one.
You know, you had a top three running back in the league go down with the injury that had we had preseason conditioning might not have had.
And you know, I don't want to get too far ahead of all the games.
But look how many games that were played well, how many injuries that happen this week.
And you know, I've heard a lot of people talking that you have no preseason games and you go from to 50% to straight 100%.
So I mean, I mean, it's a lot of there's no bones, but that's the thing.
It's not even just the preseason.
For me, There was no O.
There was no camps, nothing.
So they really legitimately went from zero, working out by yourself to team practices toe for 100% game contact, like right? I'm not the biggest preseason guy because it's just boring, General, like, personally, like, I don't really sit there and get excited about preseason.
But listen, maybe not four games, but they needed at least 123 Yeah, they need to or something.
And I think you will see a whole lot of what s going down the road with the NFL.
You know, maybe we should have shortened the season to get a pretty season in this year, right? But, you know, welcome. 2020.
I don't think they're shortening the season because they just increase the season e nos.
I mean, I understand it.
And if you think financial, I mean, for a money perspective, they're not going to shorten the season.
And they're also extend e think this year.
Well, Oh, yeah, Well, I mean, after this year, I mean, look how many people are done for the year defense and offense.
Society, so I mean, it's gonna take it.
What do we get to that Niners Jets game? Yes.
And even the Broncos.
So I mean, man, uh, stopped about the window with $40 already.
There. First off.
Midnight, Moose. Welcome to the broadcast.
See you in here.
But it doesn't say I could give you a follow for some reason.
I don't know, guys, you all need to go follow him.
Connie, you will fall in love with Moose or you're in the You know, maybe you should probably already know my all this stuff.
Also welcome to the broadcast.
Hop on in here if you want to, man, we don't care.
We're just talking football, and I feel like the heat is on in this room.
The next game on my list was the best game of the week.
What? Every game everyone should have watched.
Let me get over to it.
It was the American team.
The Dallas freaking cowboys in the Atlanta choke.
It always Falcons.
Man, I want to hear you loved during this game.
If you even watched it.
I did watch the tail end of this game.
Give me just a bit.
Starts real quick.
Boss had me working during this game, huh? Yeah.
I mean, you right there. The Falcons.
They are choke artists.
You know, They had what they need.
Lead in the first, You know, pretty much you, uh and you really can't like you can't just sit and blame Atlanta for blowing this time.
You don't, Matt Ryan.
I had a good game for four touchdowns to 73.
Only got sacked.
One time running game was enough to keep on violence defensively, though they just gave up too many big plays there at the end on you know that Just 4.
50 for diet through the air.
What can you say? I'll make congratulations to the Cowboys.
Thank you. Thank you.
Quit this back on them cowboys.
And what a way to end it.
I mean, I hate any game that wins by a field goal, but that onside kick stop it. Perfect.
No, I'm not letting I'm not letting you get away with perfect execution.
I'm not letting you get away with it.
Listen, I'll tell you Listen.
Listen, the only thing that was the only thing I was executed was the Falcons ik, apparently because everybody and their mother and I listen, you can play it in Madden for all I know that you don't gotta wait.
I was the offensive or as a team receiving it.
10 yards to go grab the ball on Lee.
The other team on Lee.
The Cowboys had to wait those 10 yards.
So what are the falcons? Ooh.
You know, let's just let them get this, you know, or kind of bored anyway with smacking them all day.
Let's just Let's just let them get it. Let's just see what happens.
You know what I mean? And they let them get an on site.
Listen, I appreciate the Falcons, so because they gave me my fifth Super Bowl, so I thoroughly appreciate it.
Like like I absolutely love it.
So shout out them.
You know, 28 to 3 might be my two favorite numbers now, but that was that was unbelievable.
I remember, you know, you guys in the chat or even just looking at scores and stuff.
I saw the falcons were up by so much.
I was like, OK, this game is over.
You know, in my head I'm making fun of the cowboys, everything like that.
You know, things, things we all love to do on then and then, you know, it's Hey, look at the Cowboys game.
Look, look at this.
And I'm like, What do you look at this? We're getting killed and all of a sudden it's tied or they're going ahead.
And I was like, Oh, like I don't know.
I don't know For Dan Quinn, who's supposed to be Mr Defense, you know, before they had kind of the excuse of They've been injured the last two seasons, but I don't know what in the hell happened that game.
Um, greatness happened.
I mean, that's all you could say is good hair who don't get injured in that game? Or did he just not play? I mean, hey was just a non existent.
I guess that I guess, like I like I said before, like I said, I mean, I know his hamstring got a little bit messed up on the on the past from the wide receiver or whatever it was that he dropped.
But I mean, like I said before, I don't think that the Falcons even like Julio Jones.
I think they signed him because they had Thio because I sort of got if he was in any other offense, he should be Jerry Rice with the way with how talented he is.
But, you know, doesn't get red zone targets.
What? What was that stat? I mean, he finally broke it last season when I'm pretty sure he had gone, like 20 games without a red zone touchdown like hat.
How does that happen? How you got may I mean, the man is a beast e I remember the Thursday night game? It was the Patriots and the Falcons, and he went up against Malcolm Butler and destroyed him in the red zone like legitimately rip the ball out of his hand and stood over him.
And I was like, You're a grown ass man.
I was like, How did they not use you? Better? E mean, he's so big and massive.
I'm almost just say, You know what? Just run the walk at.
Let me get out your way.
No, I really want guys calm down.
But I I would think about it going back to that onside kick.
It almost looked like Atlanta was 1/5 and sixth grade football team.
And the coach said, Alright, guys, everyone huddle up right here.
The ball has to go at least 10 yards.
Do not touch it unless it goes 10 yards and it almost looks like every player Center.
Oh, it's at six.
It's at 80 It's at T N.
L and Cowboys just basically made a circle right inside of them.
Just executed perfectly perfectly.
I'm going back to that.
I did not get to watch most of the game.
Not that I'm saying I used the breaker and computer to watch the game cast or anything like that while I was on the clock, but I definitely was able to see the film go go through just leaving it at that.
I think it was a great win for Dallas Cowboys, especially with I think Dak Fumbled want.
Zeke fumbled once.
We had a couple of turnovers.
They're very quick, so I was happy to see the bounce back.
I think that's the biggest thing for them.
Sorry, I was getting into my nose getting on screen there, but as I was trying to pull up stuff on bleacher report here in my NFL to try to have something, I didn't catch this. But Hayden hurts.
The Falcons, tied in after the game, actually went up to deck and they've got him on recorded here, said after Sunday's game.
Gave him a thank you for opening up.
They're as mentally so.
I don't know if he's trying to say, you know, rude awakening what happened and also went on to say opening up about his mental health, too So who knows what he's going with their But, you know, Ah, lot of scrutiny for deck from fans.
Which it shouldn't happen about how he's dealt with depression and anxiety during the offseason.
Kudos to him and get help if you need it, guys.
Did you pick cowboys? I can't remember you said that.
I did pick the Cowboys, Unfortunately.
Well, I don't like the way you say that.
Next game, we got the Colts and the Vikings. Call me.
Let's see what you liked about it or and let's who'd you pick first? I did pick the Vikings in this game, which makes me very sad, because I was I think I was, uh, Colts pick away from hitting a parlay again.
So, uh, but I don't know, I just thought the Vikings would would pull it out.
I thought they were I don't know.
I just never I like I said, Like I said before, I'm not really a believer in failed burgers anymore.
So, you know, I kind of thought I would just go with with them.
I like, I like the Vikings defense.
I mean, obviously not like the Colts.
Defense's is good as well, but coming off that loss to the Jags, I was kinda I was like, maybe maybe we got a little *** in the armor here.
But the only changing the armor is Kirk cousins to the Vikings because I don't know what he was doing.
It looked like someone was playing mad and handed the controller to their six year old son.
So I don't know what it waas he I don't I don't Even I don't even know where to begin in the interceptions, the turn like turnovers and everything.
And it's still kind of surprising to me.
I mean, I know they couldn't really do it in this game because they were down, but I still think that Dalvin cook needs to be more involved.
And I'm not saying that because I have him in fantasy.
I looked like, Yeah, that Z That is not the other reason I'm saying it.
I just think that the Vikings are, uh, an easily better team when they can run off when they can, you know, hand the ball off to him, and then they get everybody from the defense to come up and then you hit.
You know, Adam feeling or or one of your new receivers over the top for for a long game on play action.
So that's what I think their offense really is.
So not seeing Dalvin involved is kind of starting a little bit, because I just don't really understand it.
Matt. Let's hear your part.
But the Colts defense just look very well, you know, they went out in the off season and retold that defense a little bit.
They got the Force Butner for nothing, and he might have put him back in this game literally.
What they trade.
Like 1/6 round pick for a starting D tackle? Nothing.
Darius leader I made.
Derek Slater is one of the better linebackers.
You, um, but the Colts The thing about the colts, if you watch the Colts much over the years, they're very much a ball control dominant offense.
Doesn't matter for the quarterback is they're gonna beat on you, you know, 2040 carries in the running game.
You know, see if I can find time opposition here.
That's that's kind of tailor, man.
Yeah, e had the ball on offense for nearly 40 minutes of a 60 minute game.
You're gonna destroy them with that Kirk Cousins, Kirk Cousins experiment.
When do you get that big contract? Like, three years ago? Three years ago.
Something like that.
You know, that was the biggest waste of money ever.
Almost as bad as Jerry World out in Dallas.
That was just a huge waste of money.
So s no waste of money is gonna be when that gets the contract must be real.
You know, I'm looking at the steps that you're looking at this. Okay? Yeah.
Uh, you know, moves.
You make a great point.
Brock Osweiler was I think we could have played a better quarterback in Broad Kaswell.
I've watched Matt throw some dog football.
So we have a store video looking at the status.
You know, Jonathan Taylor rushed for 26 attempts.
9 yards, carry for his first start.
Rushed over 100 yards.
But Hines didn't even rush the ball and I was looking out here, see if he might even play, but he could have one target one catch four yards.
So all these goods there uh, again, like, I'm just more worried about my fantasy team on that.
So thankful for that.
Jonathan Taylor got average 17 fantasy points for mostly.
What I like Kurt cousins on this game just definitely wasn't his game.
E keep threw, Three picks, three sacks.
I'd like to know how many rushes and hits that he actually had because that stand anywhere because I didn't get to watch this game.
I'm just looking, you know, he had he was elected 26 for only 113 yards, so I mean, he's averaging roughly 10 yards of past.
So I just wondered if the offensive line on that game was just banged up or if they didn't play well.
And if I even have this in the right here Yeah, I do.
So, yeah, I feel like we almost look at the Vikings off old Vikings to think that they're supposed to be good.
Are they going to now? I want to.
They are owing to.
So I feel like we need to wake up and think, Okay, this is not the same Vikings team.
What's changed on there? We've got to just go ahead and hit the realization button that they're done.
But again, I like cousins and I like cook.
Everyone had to cook and watch the top four of the fantasies address this year.
So I mean, I can understand why you would have traded for cook, but you look like a W right now, listen personally.
But 14 weeks, 14 weeks, you're 14 weeks.
Everyone on my panel, we all picked the colts the wind.
So we're all 100% on that.
Uh, we'll move on over to the next game and I'll go ahead and tell you the game, but then I'm gonna do a little plug.
Here is the Bills and Dolphins.
Now, while you guys think of whatever you wanna talk about on there, look up some stats.
I just wanted to plug here real quick, Guys, the ones interviewing, uh, Connie earlier said his parlay.
And if you don't know what parlay is, it's a lot of betting to do Our unwrapped sports network.
We have a unwrapped bets on Twitter.
Go follow them, guys.
And gals, obviously, when I say guys, I mean, but they have some great content.
They're actually I think there's a unwrap.
What do they call that? The unwrapped bands going on right now for Lakers bands? Yes, and the Nuggets game where they're actually streaming it online and just more or less hanging out and then also talking about their their best.
They got a little ticker going at the bottom where it has what bets they're making.
Also with that, if you do like to bet, go to my bookie dot eggy and that's m a for my bookie.
B 00 k i e dot a g and we have a partnership in a partner, a partnership with them where you can put in the promo code U S N 100 they will actually match dollar for dollar up to $1000 for your first deposit.
Now, if you're like me who haven't never gambled on anything except for my heart and how well I'm going to treat it with all the fast food I ate, e get a little worried about bets.
So I actually went ahead and made my own profile with my bookie dot a G and set up the promo code.
But I have not made a deposit.
I do love that about the site.
They're not like, Hey, you want to start betting? Let us go ahead.

You don't have to put up front.
So if you like me, your weary go ahead and create a profile, Check it out.
Kind of see how it goes.
And it looked very easy to understand coming from someone who knows nothing about betting.
So again, I'm gonna put it in here.
We're gonna We're gonna get you a nice parlay for your first one.
I just want 50 percent.
Just sounds good to me.
Oh, but you know, that's not bad, because if you use the promo co us in 100 whatever I bent, they're gonna or whatever.
I deposit no match.
So if I e when it's a win win, I wish I would have.
And I tried my best to talk my wife into it.
Get to you Okay with the chiefs bet that they had out there.
It was basically money.
It was What was it that cover 54? Yeah, they were.
The chiefs would have to lose by 50 five.
Yeah, that's never happened.
They're never gonna lose.
So anyways, e don't know.
They look, Thio, that we'll get there.
So, man, I haven't started with you before yet, so I want to go ahead and start with you on the Bills and Dolphins game.
What did you want? That watch this game.
But I did catch the highlights of this game.
And I'll tell you 2 may I mean, you see the eye popping stats of Alan.
You see the eye popping stats and fits magic, you know? Yes.
Complete Just airshow from both teams.
Defense was horrible.
Just scroll down and look at the stats.
Defense was horrible.
There were four sacks total and five TfL total across both teams.
In this game, defense was old.
No P Exxon's art.
No pics, no picks in this game.
I don't boy no picks in this kind whatsoever.
So they was sacked one time.
Josh Allen did take a ***.
It's magic. Took three.
I mean, when you look at stats and you've got two guys that air just slinging ones for 3.
28 2 touchdowns in 4, 17 and four touchdowns.
There is no defense in this game.
If you had either one of these guys on my fantasy team, I'm thinking Michael did.
Corey, I know you're not in here, but if you watch this on replay, see money.
Tell me that Josh Allen sucks again. Please.
Of course, this is when he comes back says while they play the Jets and there's often so I don't wanna hear it until they play someone e no.
I'm gonna look up.
What? He scored in one leg.
The one league that we're in, he Josh Allen, had, like, 230 points or something, which that's a very friendly leave.
But it was insane.
Yeah, but yeah. Defense, defense.
No run game for me.
The team? Yeah, e mean buffaloes it to a no, but they're gonna be probably bottom of that division.
Truthfully, I just don't see them really, even in that division later in the year, because a lot of people actually saying they may take the division on.
I mean, I think New England look great.
I think it looks good now.
The jets, the jets for the dead bottom of that division.
Don't get me wrong e news in that division.
They What do you say? Who is a division? It's the Patriots.
Jets, Bills, Dolphins, Dolphins was the one. Okay.
Okay, so maybe bills will be second in that division because the Dolphins were radically bad and the Jets are They need to move to Toronto and just get it over with there so bad, they just need to play rugby.
Instead, you turn into an actual airline or something.
Yeah, It Connie, What about you? What do you like on this game or it? Za Josh Out Show.
I'm trying to tell people I've been trying to tell people I do have him.
I do have him in a couple of weeks to I also tried to trade for him and one of them the kid wouldn't give him up.
So I'm a little upset about that, E, but yeah, it was the Josh Allen show for sure.
I've I've kind of joined.
I've kind of been on the bandwagon since last year, at least.
I've been trying to tell people that he's not as bad as you know, they think, and he's starting to prove me prove me right.
So I really appreciate you.
I actually just put a put a little Sprinkle money on him to win an M V p this year just because the odds were so good, I don't think it's gonna happen.
But listen, if it does that pay out, that payout was it was just a little too good not to try.
So I went on, I did that.
But yeah, you know, like, you know, like you said that it was a lot of a lot of offense in that game, for sure.
I was a little weird.
They had, like, a weather delay in that game or something, as well.
So there was that.
So, you know, that kind of messes up the flow of everything as well, but, you know, we kind of expect obviously had the bills in this game.
I don't really think we expect too much from the from the Dolphins.
Anyway, I have the bills winning the division.
So my thing I'll say the most that I took from this game is everyone has been on the high for Jordan Howard this year.
They even said he was in the top 10 and running back.
Fantasy wise I've seen or I'll say they have seen some of that.
And I just thought that because Did he play for eagles last year? Right? He did.
And I'm like, E, don't think you're going from this horrible Eagles team to the Dolphins.
It still be good.
So I just And he only rushed five attempts.
Zach wants that one. Exactly.
So obviously, everyone.
Well, I mean, at least like asking if I'm saying that right? Gaskin, He he averaged 6.
6 carries or yards of carry, so I mean, but they're the only rushed him seven times.
They only rushed a total of well 18 times as a team.
And Ryan Fitzpatrick had three of those Russia's.
So we'll leave it at that.
So I think this is a time for everyone.
That's on fantasy bandwagon of Jordan Howard to bell that ship now because, plus, yeah, listen, listen honestly, if you had, if you had him in the top 10 I genuinely think you deserve this because you're out of your mind.
I mean, I agree with that.
So happy that he's not doing well because I almost took him because almost almost listened to some of the experts.
And I was like, Man, I've got him out there.
Maybe this is a steel.
I can't do that.
I don't know who only with, but there's no way I could commit to it about listen to the hop.
It got out of it.
So of course, all of us.
We were all bills across the board now the game that everyone hated toe watch.
We got the 40 Niners and Jets.
So let's go with you, Matt.
Let's hear about some of the injuries.
If you gotta pull it off your take on there.
I mean, where do you start? Nick Bosa went down the I can't say that.
I think most start actually, most hurt most, uh, most of it went down and that that sucks for me because I've got him in two leagues and he's been put up points all year.
Um, you know, they lost Lost another day.
Solomon, Thomas Thomas.
You know that if you've got the San Francisco defense in fantasy right now, I would suggest drop that defense that completely changes that defense.
They have no pastor chest out of those two guys.
I mean, they got a little bit of, you know, and you've also got, uh what's the corner? Richard Sherman.
Richard Sherman's on the hour right now.
You know, there that defense is gonna be so different.
Garoppolo had the ankle sprain, I believe.
Which Garofalo's Nick Mullins, I think played really well for, you know, the few snaps he took.
So I'm not too bad there.
Jerick McKinnon came in like, well, into the 33 rushes he had.
I think he had some receptions to trying to look here.
But, you know, overall, San Francisco, if they're playing a team other than the Jets, probably loses that game due to all the injuries that had the jets are horrible.
You know, uh, I keep going back toe butt fumble with the Jets.
It's all I can think about is, But it's gonna happen again this year with same Donald.
They're that bad.
I mean, yeah, here's okay.
San Francisco is a good team.
San Francisco's got a bunch of injuries. Yes.
Do they have read? Yes.
I picked him up and I know everybody thought I was stupid before the game.
But of course I didn't play him, so it makes me more stupider.
But he had eight targets.
Jordan read to him, referring to seven receptions, 50 yards.
But he had two touchdowns.
The dude conceal play.
That's my highlight.
Now, San Francisco was so beat up, they didn't have their starting running, but are starting tight end.
I can't think of his name right now, George carefully in this? Yes.
Didn't have killed.
Is he out for a year now? Yeah, he was No, he was just out for that game.
And then, like, well, you already talked about some of the injuries that happened.
And you still put up 31 points on the jets.
Like, are they still that good? With so many people out where the jets that sad eso their terror? That is crazy.
Like I hate time.
I'm a little sensitive guy.
I know this is crazy, but I sitting and thinking, you know, when I hear someone say, Oh, man, this player is horrible what I'm saying I think that guy I heard that on ESPN.
I hate that for him.
you know he's trying his hardest, but the Jets suck.
Like, how are you offended? A professional team like you suck.
That's all you could professional with, Jace.
I mean, I'll look for the rock to reach out to the Jets team and say, Can we just down gradual to the XFL? Maybe come in.
Eighth place is with they're all 8 to 10 teams there.
So I'm telling you, let's relocate the Jets to Toronto.
Let's get the NFL up in Canada rebrand, um, rename fire, everybody.
I think it works. That better.
Listen, let me tell you being like I said, being from here, I've seen a lot more just than I ever want to in my entire life.
And it's it's honestly comical at this point.
Like if you if you listen to the talk shows around here, you know, the fans call in and and I know I mentioned it before, Michael, I care.
I don't know if you remember, but the Michael Kay Show The Yankee, The Yankees play by play announcer.
Yeah, so I always watch his show That's on at three o'clock in New York and God, you hear people calling in and they're just It's literally depressing.
It just legitimately depressing that.
Like, you know, I always have faith in my in the Jets.
And then they always let me down and that Listen, I'll tell you why you should not have faith in the Jets.
Besides, from the fact that they're terrible, the owner has come out and said that Adam gazes an offensive genius.
Yeah, in the love off, everything that is holy.
What makes Adam gays an offensive genius? What makes heaven offensive genius? Besides the one year with the top five quarterback of all time and paying Manning, Ryan Tannehill left and he took her and he took the Titans to the A F C championship game.
Mhm! Hey, left! ****! The dolphins might **** near be better than the Jets.
And we all think that the dolphins are absolute trash.
So please, just listen.
Yeah, I know you're not gonna watch this, but if you do and there's some Woody Woody, I'm telling you right now, I don't know how much cases making, but I'll do the same thing for a lot less because they are absolutely terrible.
How can you say that Adam gazes an offensive genius when his team is putting up 17 points.
They rank last in everything.
I don't know what you can't drive, you know, you got people, and then and then you're going to set yourself even back mawr because I'm telling you it's gonna happen.
And knowing the Jets that they're gonna mess it up because they're dysfunctional.
And, you know, like I said, I'm a patriot fan, so I don't care about being in New York.
It's just hilarious toe watch.
So this is what's gonna happen.
They're gonna fire Gay Ace at the end of the year, but they're gonna let the GM they're gonna let the GM handle this draft class.
Then after this draft class, we're gonna bring in a new coach.
They're gonna fire the GM halfway through the season when they don't do good, and they're gonna bring in a new GM who has nothing to do with the coaches, not his coach, not the coach that he wanted.
He didn't draft the players so some of the players he wanted and then they're gonna start over again because that's exactly what they dio.
They let the old GM sign.
Leave Ian Bell and do the draft class to fire him after the draft to bring in somebody new.
Now who in the hell does that in any sport for any team? So the Jets are just terrible.
We could they might have the number one pay.
They don't even mean to tank.
They might get Shover.
Lawrence and that.
Yeah, they're playing their hardest right now and, you know, and that's and that's the thing, too, if they keep Adam Gates for some ungodly known reason.
But the Jets beating the Jets, they might do it.
They might, because they basically given listen.
They hired Adam Gates before the body was even cold in Miami.
He just got fired.
You already got hired by the Jets, and they gave him basically all the control so they might keep him.
And there's people out there that thinks McDonald's actually good, and I don't know there's people that know a lot more football than me.
I'm just some fat kid from New York talking about football.
Eso eso There's people that know a lot more about football than me, who say Sam Jonah was good and that might be possible, but you ain't gonna find out with Adam, Jace.
There's a nice there's a nice potential head coach over there in Kansas City.
That offensive coordinator.
But no, you're tired, Adam.
Gays who makes everybody terrible.
So I don't know. I don't know.
They're gonna get Trevor Lawrence.
You're gonna keep Adam gays Little Trade Sam Donald to somebody or making the backup.
And then you know what's gonna happen because it's it's their luck.
Darnell's gonna become a Hall of Famer.
Trevor Lawrence is gonna be stuck with Adam gays and be terrible.
And then we'll just continue on from there.
I mean, Donald still has a chance to show that he's a good quarterback, you know, he's made Listen, he's made some impressive throws.
He made a throw.
May throw asking, you know, rolling out, escaping, escaping rush and through her chest level right to Chris Herndon, who dropped it in the end zone.
So don't Tarrytown USA like the drop from him at USC and we're talking, you know, Pac 12 football, they're not bad over there.
But then he goes to the Jets and he looks horrible.
He he looks like he couldn't start for a in A in a 18.
Anywhere in the country, you know, looks horrible.
Well, but look at his office.
Look, his options at wide receiver.
No, no, that's the other thing, too.
Listen, I absolutely no and that you'll you'll appreciate this.
That offensive line is very important.
I asked Daequan Barkley how, how, in how important offensive lines are because he the holes he has to run through about the size of a creek so he can't run through anything right now.
I know that they needed to drive.
They drafted Mukai Beck, and, this year, Thio shore up the blind side of San Borrow and congratulations.
That offensive line is important.
Like I said, it doesn't matter how long he's protected when his when his number one wide receiver on Sunday was Chris Hogan.
Even on the Patriots, Chris Hogan was the third wide receiver, and we know how bad the Patriots skill position players are.
And that's coming from a Patriot fan so they don't have Levy on anymore because he's on IR.
It is supposed to be this great title that everybody keeps talking about when he gets hurt every other day and then drops to touch down in the end zone.
And I legitimately besides Jamison Crowder, Chris Hogan.
I don't know any of the skill player names.
I think they got one new skill players and even last year, you know, they did a lot better receiving corps last year.
It's Ah, it's interesting.
Maybe they can call up Santonio Holmes again.
Let's just get away from this game. It was pitiful.
Anyways, we spent way too much time on this crap game, but we all needed Thio just a tad bit.
About how bad chance or poor Jets? Poor jets.
Anyway, let's go to the Rams and the other team.
I hate the Eagles.
Um, since Connie just went on his rant.
Let's go on with you, Matt. Let's see.
What do you What do you like about it? What did you take from it? Obviously, round 37 equals 19.
I actually did not watch much of this game at Hall.
Um, I can tell you that Carson Wentz may looks like a must, Uh, I hate to say that because I've got him on fantasy teams.
But Carson Wentz, just some good.
The guy can't find open receivers.
I mean now, given Philly has probably works receiving corps than the Jets.
I mean, they've got to Sean Jackson, but Sean Jackson is getting long in the tooth at this point.
The crazy thing to me.
They've got to to top 10 tight ends in the league and you don't see them in a whole lot of too tight end SETC.
They're rotating Zach Ertz and Dallas got her in and out.
I don't put them both out there.
Put Goddard in the slot for that six.
He's a mismatch all day long if you stick him out there.
Um, you know, just not not a great team in Philly this year.
You know, Jared golf is not a great quarterback, but he's not a bad quarterback.
He's gonna He's gonna get you where you need todo.
They came makers had the injury.
Uh, you don't have severe That injury was, but I remember hearing he got hurt.
A Cooper Cup receiver, you know, defensively is where l A has been known for years and they really? To me, They don't look like they're that same defensive team this year, you know, they've got So there's some pieces, but they don't have that.
You know, General Ramsey had one tackled all that long.
One tackle, Probably the highest paid corner in the levian one tackle.
No, I'm not worth the money, in my opinion, on that game.
But no Philly, they're probably you know who else in that division? Theo. Cowboys.
I mean, China Cowboys, right.
Our Washington E Think it's gonna be between them and the Washington football team.
Who's the worst team in the division? E.
You're just not seeing any production.
There is no preparation for Carson plants.
And he's in his fourth year in the league.
Now A t least I think, Yeah, whatever deck was whatever that is.
So you're probably I'm looking at this and, you know, acres did get hurt.
I don't think Oh, here he is Camp.
He had three carries, 13 yards, but I was surprised with Henderson from this game.
12 carries, 81 yards average, 6.
8 carries or yards per carry.
Malcolm Brown 11 yards or 11 carries for 47 yards 4.
I mean, this team is definitely a run.
Lee had to throw the ball 27 times That, of course, it was a blowout.
They jumped out first quarter 14 to 3.
Phillies did answer back with 7 to 13.
That sound a different way.
Excuse me, But then the second half realms came back out.
30 3rd quarter 13 to 3.
So I mean, it finished the game 37 19 score.
Just looks much in favor of rounds.
Like Philly just got tired.
And this is the same against Washington.
Philly was great.
I think they jumped out 21.
Nothing. Second half, 17. Nothing.
We don't talk about that Eagles game, okay? E killed.
I told you that was the game that I needed to hit my 18 parlay.
That would have won $2000.
But you know, right, right.
We won't talk about that anymore than so.
I mean, either l a looks great, which they beat cowboys, and they did look great.
And they did look great here, but I really think eagles almost running into a fatigue here.
I don't know again.
Preseason, just conditioning, whatever.
Just trying to find some answers there.
But I mean golf.
Only through 27 times he completed 20 so he only had seven incomplete passes.
If golf can Onley can throw under 30 passes a game and still throw for 2 67 3 touchdowns.
That's great for him.
That's great for the ramps.
I think office a good quarterback.
I don't think they would be leader anything like that.
But I think he's a good quarterback, so I mean, he's getting the job done.
The line seems to be proven offensively that they're doing great.
And Connie, I feel like you're about that bits wanting to say something to go ahead and jump on it.
You know, if it is, you know, it's it's the Eagles.
Don't look at good at the moment and you know it's it's weird because my Carson went for M V.
Pick is not looking very good right now.
That was kind of my hot take at the beginning.
That was my hot take in the beginning of the year.
Well, because that's the thing because that's the thing.
I think he's fantastic.
What I don't think it's fantastic is how beat up and terrible the Eagles offensive like is either.
They are just the Eagles offensive line.
Can't protect him from us three you know, on a pass rush.
So I don't know what's going on with them.
You know, obviously, Aaron Donald was in that game, so he was, you know, eating everybody alive like he does most people.
Um but yeah, it's It's like, you know, it's Carson's, almost like he's trying to do too much because he knows that, you know, he might not have the town around him, but, you know, hopefully, you know, like you said, I don't know why they don't do too tight end sets.
I think once again, this comes from my patriot bias, that I love too tight incense because for a while, watching Gronk and Aaron Hernandez was poetry in motion, so I don't know.
I don't know why they don't do too tight insects when they have hurts and daughter, but they should because, you know, they're definitely not too skillful at wide receiver.
I know they brought in their rookie this year.
And you know, I was on Jeffrey should come back eventually.
I'm assuming so, but, you know, like you said to Sean Jackson, get a little bit up there in age.
But I you know, I feel like Carson just trying to do too much right now when he needs to just, you know, take a little, take a little step back and just let it, you know, kind of come to him and stuff because I really like I said, I think if you protect him and gave him decent weapons instead of what he has now, I literally think he's a top three quarterback.
Like he's big, he can run huge arm.
So I think I I don't know.
Maybe I'm just a little too much fascinated with him.
I think you're right there to, uh I do like wince.
I mean, he's proved to be great.
It's just that I think that he's trying to be Russell Wilson.
You know, Let me have the ball.
Let me create everything.
Let me throw it wherever I want to.
And he just doesn't have the team for that.
I think that he can do it, but we're just not gonna have it for another three years at least.
And we've got someone else joining in.
Welcome to the broadcast, Matt.
We've got to mats in here, so we'll go with ugly Matt below me in, Harry, Bear weight.
Wait, Where's the cheese head? I'm in California right now.
The cheese head did Did not make the trip.
It takes up too much space.
So I got the Super Bowl champions hat instead.
OK, ok, that'll work force.
All right, so we just got done.
I know we've already talked about it, but I know we want to hear your green bay cakes. Please.
Green Bay Look great.
They look great.
I mean, they dropped 43 points week 1 42 points a week to They just looked great as a whole.
I mean, the way how the ST played against the Raiders.
I feel very confident for the Green Bay Packers heading into New Orleans that so coming week.
Especially if Michael Thomas can't suit up.
Michael Thomas can't play Week three against the Saints.
I mean, against agreement, packers.
I'm very confident that Green Bay could get in there and get the job done.
One thing I would say Green Bay has toe work on is just better.
First quarter starts.
It seems it seems like the first two games they've always started out a little slow.
But as the game went on, they got better.
So I just want to see if Green Bay could keep it.
If Green Bacon keep it consistent, like if we could start off strong and keep playing strong thing, that's just the cherry on top.
But overall, I feel like Green Bay had a spy, solid performance and looking at Roger stats that his first two games of his two M V P seasons were eerily similar to the same stats he's putting up the first two games this season.
So if he keeps this up, you gotta consider Rogers in the M V P conversation.
I mean, a lot of people are saying, Oh, Mahomes, Wilson, Lamar as the M v P Race.
But don't don't sleep on the bad man Rogers.
He he looks good right now.
I mean, it is against Minnesota and Detroit, which aren't good teams at the moment, but if he could keep up the good pace against New Orleans, then I Then I I would say, Why not? Why can't Green Bay make a deep run? You know, in the playoffs? E agree.
I think they're looking really, really good.
Uh, like I said, we've already talked about it.
Someone spend too much more time on it, so we'll just keep on going.
The next on my my paper, anyways, is the Denver Broncos game and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Do you wanna go ahead and talk on that one, too? That you just now joined in? Yeah.
I'll talk about that one.
I got to feel bad for Drew lock.
I mean, Drew lock his rookie year.
He started off hurt.
I mean, we saw how bad Joe Flacco was for Denver and then when When Drew lock was ready to go. You look good.
I think, in the final five games of the season, they went four and one, you know, he looked solid.
He wasn't too bad against Tennessee like he didn't play bad.
He was just stuck with the coach who didn't know how to manage your time properly and then going into this game against Pittsburgh was a little sluggish, but that hit that he took that caused a strip sack.
He's now out 2 to 6 weeks.
I mean, you saw the Broncos.
They didn't like what Jeff Driskel had.
So they went out and got Blake Bortles.
I want to see you know what what Blake Bortles could do.
I mean, we saw when he was in Jacksonville, he was okay.
He wasn't the best, but he knew he knew he knew his role like they were more like Jacksonville at the time, was more of a run heavy kind of team.
I mean, look at Denver Broncos.
Now that they don't have Drew lock, you got to think they're probably gonna be more of a run heavy kind of team.
Probably more carries for Portland's leave for Gordon, for Freeman.
If you want Thio.
But it's one of those where if you're Denver, it's a tough loss because that's another year where your young quarterback there you're looking at is once again hurt a long amount of time and it's not like it's a it's like it's ah, easy injured to cover for the A C joint that's in your shoulder 2 to 6 weeks.
E I mean that that could change the whole career of a possible like good quarterback.
Afterwards, I didn't pay attention to where the injury waas.
I just knew he was hurt.
Is it his throwing shoulder or opposite shoulder? Anybody knowing that I think is his throwing? I think it is his throwing Children.
That's it was gonna be crazy.
I mean, the rehab on that.
If he's out six weeks, I mean, there's lots of muscle there, plus the fatigue of it.
Mhm is gonna take some time.
Get back, Plus Sudden went out.
I don't know how long you and, uh, he's done, man.
Are you that blind? Uh, no, I was just, uh no, no, I'm not.
I'm blind distantly, but somehow, some way, the Lakers are making a comeback.
They were down by 20 and they cut it to three.
Really? E, but back back onto the week to discussion.
No, no, no, I didn't.
Just just to visit just to visit my dad for his birthday.
He celebrate his 50th birthday yesterday.
So shut off the pops for his 50th birthday.
Yeah, all right. She's good.
Why? Why? Why? Why Why is cheese his father? Okay? Roethlisberger had a great game to 29. 41.
311 yards, two touchdowns.
He did have one pig.
Uh, Matt, my boss.
E No, you kind of like the Steelers a little bit.
You wanna talk about that game? Any happy to see Connor James? Cornerback? Yeah.
I mean, the Steelers defense look really well, that's what I was saying.
I was trying to look through some ****ytical stuff on their defense as far as politically.
What they were looking like that I know they had blue seven ***, part pf else in that game.
Uh, Steelers defense just looked really good.
But you also gotta take in the fact that Denver, you know, missing their starting quarterback.
A huge gridlock playing anyway.
But it was e they were missing that piece.
None. Game. Never really could get off.
E think been in office workers getting up there in age, but at the same time, he put together a pretty good game.
You know, he, like you, said he was rather rather good.
Then the game was the most efficient, but mid range passes.
You know, he was Oh, what is that? 12 15 15 20 over the middle in open range, mid range prices.
So, you know, when you're running those kind of ****ytics, you're doing pretty well.
I mean, I think I feel like 41 passes for office burgers a bit much, but his whole career.
Really, Uh, James Connor really hurt because he with his ankle injury, I actually thought about starting any snail.
Thank goodness he only had three carried for five yards.
But I did not start calling her because I didn't know how much he would be available.
Great game for him. Coming back.
Only 16 carries and having over 100 yards.
Yeah, they They want to wish you a happy birthday.
But so he says, clock it.
But I'm asking for Steelers in this e that I heard the old I didn't pay attention at first, but I'm interested in Steelers team this year.
I'm I won't say I'm on the bandwagon with them because the Cowboys fans can't lock them.
But I liked the quarter, You know, last year, Roethlisberger's down, Connors down juju had a bad season, but the defense and the team just come together.
They have a great season last year.
I want to see what they do this year and so far this year out to and oh, they're just doing what they have.
I am a little worried that a lot goes out and you only win by 4.
It Z here, let me get back on their stats.
You beat a team without their starting quarterback and, technically, Driss get through 18 of 34 for 256 yards, two touchdowns.
Now I understand one quarterback you playing for a certain way.
Uh, off the bench quarterback you don't know how to prepare for you are not prepared for, so that's fine.
I understand that.
But still, that defense is what they're all about.
Still gave up 21 points of backup quarterback.
That's a little scary.
Now, fantasy wise Melvin Gordon is gonna be crazy.
I think I think Lindsay is gonna have a bunch of fantasy e just say that they're both on the same team.
Who's gonna be the better on that But I see dump down passes, uh, easy past screen passes, middle screens, all this stuff.
Just something to get the ball in their hands.
David Johnson play from Arizona, his rookie or second year.
So if you got him blame, who's going to come out the best? I don't know.
We'll go with that.
I'm looking back here.
No one picked the upset from the Broncos on this, so that's good.
The next game we got one on If the pan got tongues out there, the Panthers in the Bucks.
Connie, let's come to you since I know you love top of a a SZ e.
But yeah, you know, it's I didn't I for sure pick them? Just because I don't know how I feel about the Panthers defense this year, obviously starting So maney e.
I think they're starting like five rookies on that team.
I believe in a 100% positive, but I know that they got a They got a lot of rookies over on that defense.
So I assume that you know, Brady, you know, being the week so long to pick them apart, and it's still, you know, still kind of a work in progress, for sure.
It's, you know, it was still getting calming down things like that.
But, you know, you can kind of see Brady getting along with, you know, the new targets and definitely having some fun there.
Chris gotten was out for this game.
So, you know, it really wasn't the full, you know, a lot of stars and everything like that, but, you know, Mike Evans deep downfield, and then they get, you know, Mike Evans for a touchdown off of a public fake.
So, you know, you know, and and, you know, we finally saw Runninfor Neck get very involved.
He had the two touchdowns he had over 100 yards rushing.
So if you know God, when obviously got his back, it was just like a concussion protocol.
Thanks. So he missed that game, but he's back now.
You know, we got Mike Evans who looks healthy after you know, the first week, I guess you had a hamstring thing.
So hey, you get everybody back together with the letter for debt with O. J. Howard.
You know, maybe they'll get Gronk more involved.
I don't know, because even after the game, Bruce Arian said.
Listen, things isn't really a tight end offense, even though they brought bronc back and have O.
Howard, all those good players, so you know it'll be it'll be fun to see.
But and then, obviously the big story coming out of the game is.
Is McCaffrey going down? That's just, you know, it was like we've said it's a It was an absolutely awful week for for football players all around all around the place.
So McCaffrey's down for 2 to 6 weeks or 4 to 6 weeks, maybe hoping he's hoping to come back sooner than that.
But that would definitely heard for sure.
It's weird, because even on the touchdown you scored, I saw that he was limping just a little bit.
But, you know, high ankle sprain just didn't.
I didn't really cross my mind.
You know, that's what you got diagnosed.
But so obviously, for people like me who have him in in many fantasy leagues, or as many as I could get him in, it sucks.
But, you know, hopefully he'll be back in time for playoff time.
That's right, playoff for fantasy, not actual playoffs, because because they're not going there.
I never thought I would.
I mean, yeah, I guess I kind of did.
I never expected to think that Carolina will ever win a game when Bridgewater's throwing 42 passes, Obviously.
And of course, they were north close.
I mean, he did do 33 or 42 3 67 but he had two interceptions.
McCaffrey Onley rushed average three yards per carry.
59 yards on the night.
Of course, if you get a high ankle sprain, Matt Rocky Top.
Are you looking at me talking up here? Yeah.
What you looking at? Me? Yeah.
I feel like it was an expected good game from Tampa Bay.
I expect the Tampa to bounce back, especially after they're not not so good.
Performance get against New Orleans just because they had to get usedto the offensive weapons that they have.
Obviously, they didn't have Godwin, which met, You know, Mike Evans was going to get more touches.
Even Leonard Fernet.
Sadly, I had fernet on my bench and one of my fancy league, so that was a tough one for me there.
But other other than that, you know, it wasn't expected.
Good performance from Tampa.
You know, I was very impressed with what I saw, and I mean, we look at Carolina, their team.
That's a work in progress.
You know, this is a team where, you know, you're one you don't expect them to do.
You know, you just want to see what kind of young pieces they have, especially on defense.
Just how good they can dio.
Obviously, the McCaffrey injury is a tough 11 of my fantasy leagues does have Christian McCaffrey so that that's a tough loss right there.
But overall, I really wasn't surprised of the outcome.
I kind of figured it was gonna be a Tampa win just by how much.
And Carolina they kept it also a little bit.
But then the better team started to pull away in the end.
And that was the time of a bucket he stepped.
Let's hear your take on this.
Yeah, way you're killing me.
By the way, your fullness of Carolina.
You look at Carolina rule, you can see pieces there, you can see the pieces.
Big put emotion.
You know, CMC went down.
D J. Moore had a huge day.
Robby Anderson had a huge day, you know? Yeah, Their defense doesn't look that great.
They turned the ball over four time.
You know, they're they're issues there, but this is a team that is going to be in contention when they get a quarterback.
I don't think Teddy Bridgewater is their answer, but when they get a quarterback in there, you're talking playoff potential right there because I think that is a division that actually sell or NFC South.
I'm sorry is a division that's gonna be wide open the end of two years.
You know, Tom Brady placed 40 30 Company? Yes, sir.
Be sure how much? How much longer is Tom Brady gonna play? It was a two year contract.
How much longer is Drew Brees gonna play? Every day.
You know who's there in that division? Caroline, I think, is a team that can really continue that division going forward.
But we kind of got old expected this week.
You know, Tampa Bay is a better time.
They'll probably win the division this year.
Truthfully, I hate the Las Vegas Raiders.
E only lost my only lost, and it cost me $90.
Oh, point differentials because of point differential and my and my dad and my dad's football pool, we make picks.
And then at the end of the Monday night, you do point differential.
I was a perfect 15 before Monday Night Football.
I had the Saints winning and the combined score being 43 the exact upto happen.
It was like a combined, like 68 points.
And then then it was the Saints loss.
So double whammy there.
A little off topic.
I don't like to say such moments.
You know, of course, Air picks on our board here.
We all went with bucks there, and a lot of people are on a big hop saying that, Tom, the great other stuff.
But it's still I feel like it's a little hot for the game.
Excuse me, because it was the Panthers the Panthers were going to be.
Oh, would be sold on the Buccaneers offense.
When you're playing the Panthers, let's just be honest.
I'm happy that for net got involved, I think he had 100 years already turned down.
There's you're killing me.
Oh, e couldn't remember which way to turn because it's so mirrored.
I couldn't remember e doing this to figure out E O into here.
I do think they will have a great season way.
All said last week, the Saints Bucks game ST obviously were the better.
And when they meet again, who will be the better team? We all kind of discovered wears with so great potential or a great show of what is to come on that So that's awesome.
The next game break my heart is the Jaguar Jaguars and the tithe.
This Matt Ugly Matt East L He is from Tennessee.
So I want to hear you talk about how well tennis ball play.
Is there any way you commute? Just for a little bit until you get ready to talk? I'm sorry.
Oh so much playground.
It's a part of Big Foveaux.
I mean, my hand.
He had a couple of good place.
I'll be right back.
I just have to say, Sing Happy birthday with a quick So I'm just going to send my computer down back.
Don't worry. I'll be right back.
Way need to sing.
I feel like we need to be involved.
Can we make a cake real quick? Like, hold on.
Just know we'll just do this.
Everybody just hit him with one of these.
Oh, there we go.
Thing is the 21st.
This is the 20 for the generations, ive, uh, definition of like, the lighters at the concerts.
You know what I mean, but you know way.
We gotta love love.
She's brighter than my future.
All right? So you don't really like Tennessee.
You're from Tennessee.
But I did watch this game time Take a look good.
Early on in this game.
The problem to me with Tennessee is you know exactly what they're gonna do at this point.
You know, they're gonna hand there, Henry, that rock, they're gonna feed him and they're gonna cram it down your throat.
Can you stop? That's the question.
The jaguars bottle them up all game on.
I mean, he he averaged 3.
4 yards of carry.
I like Derrick Henry. I do.
I think Tannehill is in a career resurgence.
He's not gonna be an NDP or anything like that, but career resurgence.
We talked about that with Jets conversation earlier, but you know, a waiver wire pickup from Tennessee, though.
If John Smith is available in the league, go get John Smith.
He is looking like to be the favorite target.
E picked him up.
Kid was out this week.
I added John Do And John, who had two touchdowns in this game? Yes, he Oh, yes, he did.
E still lost in that league, but that's a different problem.
But a reaction in that league in that team.
But Derrick Henry toe me.
You're gonna have to mix up.
You're gonna have to get, you know, a J.
Brown being out with injury.
That's one thing.
But you gotta get a production there.
Gardner Minshew had a game.
But, I mean, you gotta you gotta give it to the guy.
You know, 3 39 and three touchdowns only got sacked twice, and Jadeveon Clowney is on the other side coming at you every play, pretty, pretty good team there.
I think that that is probably the most competitive division in the A F. C South.
I think you have three teams in the South that could take it easily in the culture.
Sneaky good at the same time.
So who knows what that division is gonna look like in the year? Okay.
I mean, I think we all have to say that Menchu is the real deal.
I mean, he went 30.
He doesn't look bad, I'll tell you.
And it's not like it's dumped down passes.
That's getting two completions like he averaged 11 yards per pass, three touchdowns.
He did have two interceptions.
When you take away one of those interceptions, it's a different ball game, for sure, obviously.
And I mean, kudos to the Jaguars.
Really? Because there's one last week they traded for net.
I mean, they basically empty their ship out, but yet they're still being competitive.
I mean, Tennessee put out the Patriots last year.
They made it that far in the past. Last.
Hey, I'm sorry they beat that wonderful team last year.
Role clock is right twice a day.
Okay, right. That's right.
Robinson's looking like a good running back to 16 carries 102 yards.
E mean this team you Yeah, I think he was a drafted, so I mean, this team is looking good I've got Robinson in the league and and I've not starting yet.
I have to start him next week.
Had 18 fantasy points through the ESPN.
So this tape is not looking bad.
I'm gonna go at him right now, actually, because I got McCaffrey in that league and I'm a little upset.
So what? Everybody was, uh, selling their future.
Taking a You look at this look like e o.
I'll I did all that in some points that Well, I also agree.
I'm actually impressed with how Jackson was being competitive.
Like I honestly thought Jacksonville when they released Cornett, and basically, we need some doc way.
It was just basically taking for Lawrence.
Like I thought it was gonna be terrible toe watch, but the first two games competitive Now, do I think it will maintain the whole season? No, but I do like what I see the first couple of games.
And I also loved how Tennessee was able to step up without a J. Brown.
Like I thought I thought this was gonna be a team that was gonna have to rely on Derrick coming on the ground game.
But John knew Smith.
Looks like he's something special like I had of him.
I think I have it on my bench in one of my fancy the exam.
That was a bad mistake.
But John Smith is a kind of guy where, you know, you gotta watch out for, you know, in the future as potentially being a number to target.
I mean, we look at Yeah, A J.
Brown is number one.
But you gotta think of Johnny Smith.
Does that number two guy to go for it in the field? Oh, yeah.
I mean, they even have Cory Davis there too, you know? So, I mean, they've got some options, but they're definitely making Smith e.
Listen, I'm sorry I had to blow my nose.
That is driving me crazy, but I'm back e your back.
So, yeah, this would probably be if the Jackson Ville Jaguars makes the playoffs.
This will be America's favorite thing this year.
So listen meant you might be America's favorite quarterback and they make the playoffs with with that mustache.
Listen, I'm a little jealous.
As you guys can see, I'm very bad at growing any facial hair, so Oh, listen, But I actually picked the Jaguar stops at that game.
S O E did have the Titans in this game, so I actually just went on a limb here saying that checks and I even said this broadcast, Jack Wire's gonna win the coin toss, take it down, scored first touchdown.
And then Tennessee will have to show what they could do passing the ball and they would compete.
So, I mean, I just kind of clothes you.
I was. I mean, it was a good game.
So the next game we got the Washington football team and the cards.
Obviously, everyone picked the cards, but yeah, let's go with you, Connie.
Let's hear what you've got on this game.
Listen, I'm starting Thio kind of fall in love with the Cardinals here.
You know, there, if anything, you know, even if they're not gonna win the division was not really what you know, I say we don't really expect them to, but with all the injuries San Francisco has and how much trouble they have with them, normally, if they get lucky against Seattle won one game health.
They got a chance.
But you know, Arizona is just really fun to watch.
You know, I wasn't really that high on Kyler, Murray.
Like I said, I don't I'm not gonna, you know, try to fake anything right now.
I don't watch college football.
So the only thing I had really heard about Kyler coming out was, you know, kind of the negative things about him.
Then, of course, you know, you had the believers in him as well.
Yeah, but hey, listen, the kid can play.
And if and if it's not passing its's having rush yards and things like that, so he's definitely the dual.
He's definitely the definition of dual threat quarterback.
He's doing, you know, great things, obviously, now that he has Ah, DeAndre Hopkins, that definitely helps out a lot.
So, yeah, they were fun to watch, but way, That's right. That's right.
But we're going to stay away from it.
We're in the playoff hunt.
Were at the seven or eight spot right now, but we'll keep on going.
I am in love with Colin Murray.
Uh, just the things that he does now.
I was totally on the bandwagon that he's too short.
He's not gonna be able todo but man that arm strength he's got, he throws a dart and the way that he could get out of the pocket and still be accurate.
Man, he's got a future in the half.
That baseball, man, I'm telling you, I'm telling you, it really does help.
Like I'm gonna get my kids to play baseball no matter what.
If it helps sell so many different sports like that.
I mean, let's see here.
He only had when I say only 26 38 286 yards.
One touchdown. He did have one pick.
He also had eight carries for 67 yards, so the dude counted for over 350 yards easily.
He also had two rushing touchdowns to I'm just looking through there.
He did throw a touchdown pass.
The Hopkins He was 8 68 was one touchdown on nine targets, so they had one drop one sq there.
I'm still waiting for Larry Fitzgerald to show up.
He had all seven targets.
He caught for 50 yards, but it's still it's e feel like he him and Kurt.
You need to show up a little bit more.
Hey, listen, you know, they say, if it's not, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Listen, if Tyler's running around doing what he's doing and then you can throw it over the Hopkins for what hobbies been doing so far, Kirk and Larry might not.
You know, you look at it and it might be a good thing, because everybody's gonna be so focused on those two.
That one of these games.
I'm not gonna be surprised if all of a sudden Hopkins has three catches for 25 yards, But Christian Kirk has eight catches for 100.
You know, 60 and a touchdown, because everybody's like, Well, got to come in here, Stop Hopkins and stop collar from Russian College and say, Well, listen, I got Christian courage as well.
And, you know, obviously, Larry Fitzgerald is probably the most reliable hands receiver of all time.
The man catches everything.
I think I think you listen.
You know the guy.
Remember the guy in Philly who caught the baby from the building and said that I could do that? I'm like Nelson a galore. Listen.
Listen, Larry, I would have trusted Larry to catch anybody.
Hey, can catch my baby.
Yeah, so I mean more and more.
I look at this team.
I hated that they traded David Johnson, one of my favorite players in the NFL.
But looking at this offense, Drake is doing good.
I mean, 20 carries, 86 yards, 4.
3 carry our average, her carry.
Chase Edmunds, who had a horrible game.
He's still a good threat on that team.
Last year he averaged, I think, six yards a carry.
So this this year he's not that good until he got hurt. And then d****.
That's when they traded for d****s.
Are a got drink anyway, but Hopkins as an option, Kirk, It's still a good option.
Larry Fitzgerald is father time here and then, I mean, even Drake is a passing back as well.
He had two receptions for nine yards, which doesn't sound great, but he's at least a option on that on.
You got kind of little freaking Murray just running around like crazy back there.
I mean, this is like playing old school NC double A football and you're picking your quarterback rolling out your quarterback, you create and saying, Okay, I could run for 40 yards or I'm just going to throw a Hail Mary down there and you've got hot considered to catch it like this is gonna be a fun team to watch.
And add more points to that.
Did you guys see that touch driver on that? Kyler Murray had just to stop and go like he literally went up with these two legs, one to stop for us all second and then had an extra versus speed and go on score.
I love what I see with the Arizona Cardinals.
I also love how, how Murray and Hopkins, no preseason, barely any time.
And they look like they're going out of no problem opening week.
Like, what do you have? Almost like 14 or 15 catches for over 150 yards and a touchdown, And then this upcoming week, they have the same connection, So, e.
I mean, I thought Arizona was a year away from contending for the playoffs, but they looked like a team that could contend for the playoffs this year, especially with all of San Francisco's injuries, injuries to their defense.
I don't have the team to watch out for.
And I'm just very impressed with I'm just very impressed with what I see in Arizona, and the NFC West is gonna be a tough division.
I mean, ramping, you know, with the Niners and stuff it's it's gonna be It's gonna be a great division.
You know? Apparently it is possible with the expanded playoffs for all four teams to make to make the playoffs.
Really, that and if any division is going to do it, you can't tell me that it wouldn't be them.
Yeah, I mean, Ram starting off, too, And oh, I mean that Dallas when helped them greatly.
And I'm just just went away from me.
So, yeah, I think cardinals coming out of the vision, I do like think I'm wanting to go with number one e.
Can't I only say that because I can't I can't go against Russell Wilson.
Yeah, but a really have to wait.
How do you defensive minded plan for this team? Okay, you have your friends come in and contained Murray where you can't get outside the pocket.
Tom, he's just gonna throw it.
Hopkins and Hopkins is gonna have a field day.
Okay, Do the same thing.
Double Team Hopkins.
Okay, then you run a screen or you dump it down.
Thio, you're running back on just a little five and turn around.
Oh, wait. I forgot.
We got Larry over here.
Who catches everything.
Except for Kobe.
Just a **** thing.
The only thing that I would worry about is if he does stay in the pocket that he can't see over his long because he has 5 11 and that's been the biggest worry.
But even if you just like you design the best defense to contain him in the pocket, can you really keep this guy in the pocket? E don't see anyone doing that.
So I just like it's a last miss match made in heaven. Here.
Step what you got? I see you want to say something? It's, You know, it really should Those What kind of coach Cliff Kingsbury is? Cliff Kingsbury is a coach that came from the college ranks.
He came from Texas Tech.
I believe you're seeing Yeah, they were in the Pac 12 Big 12.
I'm sorry. There in sec.
E just got fired.
E Like that's the thing about E.
Look at how the receivers remember.
Andy is a well made, an incredible crack back block.
That was a legal cracked back that you don't see those plays my flowers.
You know, that was that was a design to block that.
Cliff Kingsbury grew up.
Thio, get collar, Murray out.
You know, if they're doing that stuff, this may not be Arizona's year to go when it all but a year to down the road that they'll be there.
I feel like this is a dynasty in the making.
I won't say they're like the Patriots dynasty that could be coming, but that's a dynasty in the making.
Like I said, not gonna be very hard to mimic a Patriots dynasty going tonight.
Super Bowl 20 years.
That's almost a 50% probability rate, you know that technically, Tom Brady has a better chance of making it to the Super Bowl.
That LeBron James has is making a free throw.
Okay, quick math.
Well, let's all get a round of applause for for quick, quick math's e, you need to have a PhD in quick math.
E could have a PC and a lot of things math was not would absolutely not be one of them.
D and e give around for my money with Meyer.
A lot of Christine right now, but all right, let's keep on moving their next game.
We got the Ravens and the Texans.
I was intrigued by this name game.
I didn't get to watch it because work, but I was hoping that they're being upset.
But of course, we all across the board picked up the Ravens on Let's go with you calling me Let's hear your take on that.
It's It's the Ravens doing or even things that's literally what it is.
It's the Texans being who we kind of think that they're gonna be without, You know, Hopkins and everybody with Bill Brian the worst GM of all time.
Probably a terrible because I don't know how he makes it through the year.
Do you think he makes it through the year? They will take management's terrible e.
I mean, he is the management e a coach.
I don't think he makes it through the year I just don't think that they're very I don't think that they're gonna be very good.
This year was kind of sucks because I love to Shawn Watson.
I think he's He has all the town in the world to be a generational player, but, you know, it's kind of going to be, you know, not I'm not comparing them, you know, like you said, of course, either.
But it's almost gonna be like the Matt Stafford effect where it's he's in.
Matt staffers in in, you know, Detroit.
So it's you never really got to see what he fully could have been.
And I don't think you're ever gonna be able to see what the Shawn Watson fully is gonna be because he's behind.
He's behind one of the worst offensive lines, And how long have they had him that they just still refused protective? I don't know.
What do they not like him or something like I know they gave him all the money, but maybe they just don't like him or something, because apparently Bill O'Brien didn't didn't like Thio DeAndre Hopkins, either.
That's why he got rid of him, but I literally it could.
This is gonna be another Andrew Luck.
I'm telling you right now because because Sean is getting killed every single week and you can only put up with it for so long before it's like, Hey, listen, man, I don't really know how.
How long am I? I'm gonna be here before you guys kind of help your boy out, and it sucks because I love love.
Love watching him play.
Hey, step, let's hear you talk on the line there. Yeah.
I mean, the offensive line has been horrible for years, and you're gonna look, they not added any talent around the Shawn Watson.
They've been shipping talent out, you know, they Houston's Dumpster fire.
In my opinion, they'll they'll still they will win some games.
That probably shouldn't win.
Especially that actually happened.
I said, I think that division has also on your long really foot.
Reagan The Colony.
That was the best thing I've ever heard.
Baltimore Ravens doing Baltimore Ravens things, their defense.
I mean, they don't really have a state.
They so their defense is e.
There's a lot of names on that defense, man.
A lot of talent on that, You know, Lamar Jackson didn't even have that, like, Spectacular of a day.
I mean, he was efficient, but he didn't.
I think in most fancy leaks, he was average.
He wasn't like this high popping starting quarterback.
But, you know, you just Baltimore defensive, just shutting down in every way shape, you know, Ravens doing Ravens things.
If that defense comes up in a free agency in the league somewhere, please, God.
Go grab it that way.
Let me tell you, Monday Night Football is about to be really fun.
Chiefs and Ravens.
God, is that gonna be fun? You wanna know what else is gonna be fun week for Monday Night Football? Packers, Falcons.
That's gonna be fun.
No, this is the first half.
Yeah, the Falcons will be up 65 nothing at halftime and then lose 66 65 anyway.
Anyways, back onto the Ravens like Anthony.
That that was perfect on the money Ravens doing Ravens thing that this was expected from the Baltimore Ravens Toby upon the Houston Texans.
Just because the Texans that we're gonna stop paying the man Hopkins Hopkins was Watson's number one guy.
And whenever you are quarterback, you always have tohave a number one receiver to do well when you traded away Basically a bag of chips, a relationships by the way, half air you're not, you're not going to get.
It's a good out of it.
And, you know, that's why the Texas air owing to and then last in the A F C. South.
I mean, it's very rare to say the Houston Texans were the worst team in the NFC South.
But they are at the moment because Jackson was one and one, and in my opinion, Jacksonville has been given more of an effort.
Then the Houston, Texas, now keep in mind back back games have to go up against the defending champs Week one, and then the Baltimore Ravens Week to those were two of the probably the best teams in the A F C, potentially in a F C championship game preview.
Unless if New England does New England like things where we doubt them, and Bill Belichick just finds a way with old Cam Newton to just bully their way through the A f C.
But those first two used played.
They're the two best teams in the NFC and there's really nothing they could Dio.
I mean, they didn't have a top receiver.
They traded him from David Johnson.
David Johnson had pretty much his 1st 1st, and like the first drive against Houston, that was pretty much it.
And, you know, I have the Houston Texans before the season going six and 10 and that's the reason why they don't have Hopkins and and they're one of those teams where they should lose games and take their higher pick.
But they just swim games in the end East if you're looking the wrong way.
I was looking at my assistant, okay.
Oh, you're okay.
The worst thing that I hated about this game is I have Dobbins as a fantasy player and one leak.
I have Ingram and I'm looking at the stats here.
Ingram had 13 fantasy points, and Dobson only had six fantasy points, but in total, they rushed for 30 some odd times, like 35 times.
Lamar Jackson had 16 attempts in Girl nine, Dobbins to Edwards.
Gus Edwards had 10 attempts.
He led in attempts from running backs like they're becoming New England.
Yeah, like what do you do? As far as a fantasy perspective who do you play, Who do you start? That's what I can't stand because I love fantasy on this and it and it just it hurts me like Lamar Jackson really didn't do anything spectacular, like he steps that he had 204 yards, one touchdown.
He was sacked four times, but they could even been run designed.
Pass, run, you know, we don't know.
And that's exactly how it went 18 for 24.
But he had 16 carries for 54 yards, so I mean, he had 252 160 total yards of just wasted time.
Really, you know, nothing big like you.
I It's hard to believe that the Baltimore Ravens rushed for 36 times and still scored 33 points.
Like usually, if a team rushes 30 times, it's like 14 to 20.
They still put up 33 points.
I mean, this team is legit.
I mean, I think we could talk on this team all day if we wanted to.
So let's just go on to move on down to the Chiefs and the Chargers game, who turned out to be a pretty good game.
Actually, let's go with you, Cheesehead.
I was very impressed with what Justin Herbert was able to dio last last minute scratch of Tyrod Taylor.
Obviously, hope Tyrod Taylor gets well and stuff but Justin Herbert and stuff? Uh huh.
And I said, But Justin Herbert being thrown in the fire, basically running a linebacker over.
I mean, you saw the linebacker tried to deliver a hip.
Herbert took that **** like a champ and just lay the linebacker out and linebacker got knocked out that kind of back there.
And on top of that, he threw for over or close to 300 yards.
And as a rookie starter he had.
He had the charges within winning distance like he was up in the game.
And, you know, it's just very hard to stop Pat Mahomes and leading a team down the field.
I mean, I kind of disagree with what Anthony Lynn said.
Anthony Lynn said when Tyrod Taylor goods back and healthy, he's 1% the starter.
I don't think so.
The Chargers Chargers felt different.
They felt different when Justin Herbert was on the field.
I mean, when Tyronn Taylor explained weak one, they barely put up.
They even put up 20 points against the bungles defense.
And with Herbert in against Kansas City, he basically kept up.
He kept he basically kept the Chargers in the game against Kansas City and had the lead.
So I feel like Anthony Lynn is just writing his guy and Tyrod Taylor.
But Herbert's gonna give Taylor a good run for his money, and I think we could see Herbert sooner rather than later during the season.
Like I personally thought the Chargers work.
It's gonna like Taylor until they're out of the playoff.
Herbert is gonna go and play.
The fog is but the way how Herbert played.
He was very impressive, and I feel like like I said before, I feel like we could see Justin Herbert in the near future.
Maybe even like Week four, Week five.
Like if if Anthony Lynn decided to start with Tyrod Taylor and he lays a goose in Week three, I could potentially see Herbert in as a week, four week, five starters, you see trying to look real quick to see where they play next week.
They play Carolina next week.
I think I think Tyronn was listed as week to week, though, so I think he's out anyway against this next? I think so.
I think don't I Wouldn't, You know, put your house on it.
But I put a car on it.
You should see the car.
Probably when you find on the road, I'm gonna say Tyrod tries to play this game because I think he played so well that if you beat Carolina, even though it's the Carolina, your fans gonna be like, hey, maybe tie rods.
Let's go on with her, See what we could do there.
So I think Tyrod tries to play no matter what on this game, because if Tyrod comes in and wins like they should you don't have that Herbert breathing down your throat at the smoke, as they say nowadays.
But I mean, yeah, Herbert went 22 or 33 for 33 11 1 touchdown, one interception.
But, I mean, he's a rookie first play out of nowhere like that.
So yeah, he even had 18 yards rushing on four key areas, so I could see almost feel like the worst thing that this could have happened for them in the situation as far as building the future was be competitive against the Chiefs, and that's what they did.
So this is almost all I'm saying is All I'm saying is I've said it before.
I think that the Chargers are an average quarterback away from being a playoff team, and I think based on what you saw out of Herbert, that that based on what you saw at a Herbert, that he's definitely looks like he could be average, at least.
And has he Should he? You know, he had some flashes there where he was looking really good.
I mean, obviously, he made that awful rookie mistake off, you know, roll into the left, throwing right into triple coverage.
So, you know, that's just kind of things that you do your rookie year.
You get this stupid mistakes out of the way, but I think Tyrod is done.
I mean, I know that after the game, Anthony Win said that he's gonna be the starter.
But I just feel like that's, you know, not trying to kick a person while he's down type of thing.
So, you know, move.
Set it over there in the chat that you know tie rods out so far and that if you listen, if Herbert starts this game, they win.
Or even I think I think they probably have to win for him to get the to keep the job, because if they lose, he'll be like, Oh, yeah, I see.
I told you wasn't ready or if you know, it's something like that.
But I think Herbert is definitely I'm gonna be in there for the for the long haul.
I will say, if Justin Herbert would have beat Kansas City, I feel like Anthony Lynn would have been talking different.
Like Herbert found a way.
So lead overtime game winning drive against Kansas City, the Super Bowl champs.
He would have been talking about Justin Herbert differently.
He would have been like, Yeah, we got Taylor, But did you see what my rookie Herbert did out there? You look like the man of the team, and I think he's gonna be that guy.
Well, you know, we'll see how the week goes on.
And if Tyrod Taylor is out next week, it's just more playing time for Herbert to prove that.
Hey, you know you may like your guy and Tyrod Taylor, but I'm gonna get some notice out here.
What about you? A step.
What do you have? Yeah, Yeah.
This game you've seen so much in this game.
I watched this full game and I have just, you know, Herbert E numbers forward, even if he's not.
If you're in a keeper league, this is a guy you get because this is a guy that's legit.
You know, if you paid attention during that game, they talked about that.
He was a biology major at Oregon and graduated in three years.
I was gonna go be a doctor.
A smart, smart guy.
He's gonna He's gonna be very successful.
The trouble with the Chargers is can they put pieces around them? There's pieces there right now, but if you notice most of those pieces, I mean eh, Klar is very young still, but you look at the receiving corps.
You know Keenan Allen.
He's what, 32 33.
So they gotta They gotta put some help around him.
I know Williams is still very young, but they're gonna put some help around him at the same time. Kansas City.
This isn't the Kansas City team will seen last year.
They're not dominant by any means like they were last year.
And I think people have figured that out.
Figured out that Mahomes likes to do a lot of our pos he likes to throw overseas would be open and they're closing those owns up over him.
Uh, you know, I have My home was on fantasy.
He's not been that great.
Uh, Kelsey's looked really good, but outside of that, I mean Clyde Edwards Later, he's back down to Earth, you know, he had the game won.
That was just wide open.
He had 38 yards on 10 carries, you know? Didn't look that great, which is still 3.
8 yards a carry.
I mean, yeah, that's decent.
So it is not the same Kansas City team we've seen last year.
They're not gonna be world leaders this year.
They're still a talk to your team.
They will probably be a top two seed in the NFC, but they're not unbeatable.
That I don't I don't know that I see them repeating the one in the Super Bowl this year just yet.
I'm not saying that won't, but I'm just not saying that I see it just yet.
They're not that team yet.
The top is going for seven anyway, right? Thank you for joining.
E mean, we'll just move.
All chiefs did good.
I mean, until I mean kind of like what we said with the Hopkins, uh, Marie Connection until it's broke.
And I mean, the Chiefs, they didn't play nearly as good.
I'm looking here.
My home was 27 of 47 which is not the best 302 in yardage, still two touchdowns.
But he didn't make an interception.
He's not making the dumb place, so I mean, Chargers is a good team, too.
I noticed, too, that they played uh, let's see here.
What is that? Running backs name again? Josh Kelly.
I want to say no.
It is Joshua Kelly.
They do have a Josh Jackson, but I don't think they've got him playing right now.
They rushed him 23 times.
He had 64 carriers.
Is not that great. Clear.
Only 26 is 93 which is wonderful, but it shows me that you're kind of saying, okay, my young guys, let's see what you got here, and let's prove that you belong here.
Let's play for next year.
It's a good thing I'm going to keep an eye on on charters.
I do think Chiefs are the favorite right now to win the Super Bowl, but that shows that they aren't immortal.
So I'm excited on that and for actually is gonna prove a lot of things.
Thats Martin Night games.
I know what Mars onto against the Chiefs, but this this Ravens defense is built different.
They are built there.
How does the Chiefs offense that looks less than stellar all year compared to a Ravens defense that has looked astronomical all year.
What I mean definitely will have to watch on this.
I think this will by far be the most watched game in the NFL season.
Listen, I don't want anybody.
I don't want anybody hitting up my phone.
I'm not going on not playing.
I'm locked in Monday night.
Hey, don't don't Don't sleep on the Packers ST Sunday Night football game.
Drew Brees vs Aaron Rodgers to Hall of Fame quarterbacks going at it.
Don't don't sleep on that game.
I mean, I'm not.
I'm slumped swamp.
It's probably a couple of things.
Well, Michael Thoma, uh, it to Hall of Fame quarterback on Sunday night.
It's gonna be great.
I mean, I'm also looking forward to Monday night, but two Hall of Famers, currently two versus two future Hall of Famers on Monday night e will be much more.
Yeah, it probably will be.
Probably that was zero for me showing my home or is, um, at the moment, but not enough e zombie game.
Let's move on to the pets Seahawks game cheese.
Let's just go ahead and start with you. E.
I was actually impressed with what the New England Patriots did.
I said, You know, when we were doing our pregame picks, I was wondering if New England can be consistent and I saw a different New England team.
I mean, we saw them run the ball a law against the Miami Dolphins, and this week against Seattle, they pass, pass, pass and can't even look good passing the ball.
I can't believe this entire NFL like Cam Newton, signed for $2 million for the Patriots, and he got essentially almost 400 plus yards of total offense.
He he single handedly kept the Patriots in the game.
He almost led a comeback in the fourth quarter.
They were down by, like, 12.
Now, do I think the Patriots could have run a different play at the goal line? I think they could have.
I mean, I mean, they've ran that same play all game.
Granted, it was successful.
But there comes a point in time where, like Seattle is going to finally get it.
And when you saw the tight end going motion to the left when you saw the running back going motion to the left, you kind of figured, All right, this is gonna be a camps nikto left and the Seahawks defense snuffed it out and read it.
But if I'm a past fan, I'm very impressed with what I see Granted were one and one instead of two and O.
But this was a game.
This was a game to make a break, how competitive New England can really be and the way they play against Seattle.
They could be very competitive.
There could be a sleeper team, you know, in the A f c.
All the people are gonna be like, Oh, the Kansas City Chiefs and Mahomes.
All the Mark Jackson, the Ravens but double B Bill Belichick in New England.
He's got something special brewing and the way how Cam Newton is playing.
He looks healthy.
And it was It was, honestly, a great game.
You know, I I watched the Sunday night game, and it was fantastic seeing two great Cubes and Cam Newton and Russell Wilson go stride for stride, and it looked like Seattle was gonna run away from the game.
But Cam Newton kept the team in, and this team seems to be bought in with camera.
You know, a lot of people were questioning on the camp signing like, can he fit the mold of the Patriot way? And so far you look, it looks like it, you know, it is the way I mean Bill Belichick.
That's why you know, the Patriots have been successful for 20 years because you buy into the way and you're successful.
And Cam Newton so far has bought into that way.
Granted, they were a yard away from possibly being, too, and oh, but as a Pats fan, being one and one the way how they looked against Seattle, who is going to be in the running for a top team in the NFC.
The way House Seattle looks and Russell Wilson Russell Wilson's playing like an M V P candidate.
I mean, you look at M V P.
B s this season.
Right now, it's Wilson, Rogers and Jackson as those kind of 123 Maybe Alan, maybe Allen at four.
But, you know, I just like I just liked what I saw in New England.
You know, even though they lost, I was impressed that they made a competitive.
And, you know, I basically said the Patriots were gonna be 12 and four before the season started.
And the way how they played.
They kind of look like a team that that could get 10 11 maybe even 12 wins if they keep it up.
And what's great about New England is they're they're gonna be a different light up.
Bill Belichick always finds a way to trick teams like you saw against Miami.
They ran the ball of law, and then against Seattle, they pass the ball a lot.
So when you got Cam Newton playing good, you know, you never know what you're going to get especially trying to stop Cameron scrambling.
Oh, good luck with that.
Yeah, what I took away from this game is last week, I said.
If Kim's passing 20 passes to 25 passes, they have a chance to win every game.
44 passes, 30 completions, 397 yards.
One touchdown, one interception.
Okay, Cam, I'm sorry I lied.
My name is Michael Lawson and I was wrong about you.
Now my questions.
He ran 15 times last week.
He's ran 11 times this week.
He's taken a lot of hits.
Can he stay healthy? But that's every question for every player NFL.
If they could stay healthy.
So he just has a history of getting hurt quite a bit.
Keep up what he did last week.
He had 179 total yards receiving on eight catches.
Can I make my Julian Edelman for Hall of Famer speech? Yes, Let's hear it over.
First of all, only Homer is saying that only Homer is saying that the Packers and Saints is gonna be relevant after talking about that Monday night game anyway, Listen, listen, being being the Patriot fan here, I will. I will.
I'll start off with the game and then I'll go on to Julian elements because I think he's very underrated.
But, um, you know, I'm not.
I'm not ready to admit my wrongdoings about Canada, and yet I'll get there.
If he keeps playing like this, I don't have a choice.
Obviously, you know, it's kind of been well do***ented that I wasn't really a camera guy coming into the year.
But e, I'm still I'm still waiting just a little bit on Lee because first game was the Dolphins, and I know it's Seattle.
But I feel like people still have this big picture of the Legion of Boom in their mind.
It's not them anymore.
I know they have Jamal Adams now, but you know, they were talking about on the broadcast last night.
That secondary is young and hurt, so you know, I know he threw 44 times, had all those yards, but I still want to see if it's, you know, a defense type of thing, and you know, it's it is what Matt said. It's the Patriots.
Are the chameleons off the NFL.
They just change every week.
They do what they have to dio.
It's you know, I've seen it over the years being a fan of them.
If you think that they're going to do something one game, you're wrong because they think that they already know that You think that you're wrong.
I'm sorry to tell you, you don't have a game plan for them because I've seen it.
I've seen Brady come off of 400 yard passing games with three touchdowns and thinking, Well, you know what? It worked last week.
They're gonna do it again, and then all of a sudden you have somebody named Jonas Gray run for four touchdowns in the game, so it just doesn't there just never the same.
And you know, Belichick, obviously being the defensive genius that he is, is going to do his thing on defense.
But But I also think that you kind of saw the cracks in the defense show up last on Sunday night.
Because you can only have so many people off that you can only have so many next man up to, you know, replace the people you know, they lost.
They I believe they lost like eight starters on the defense, maybe, or are not stars.
But they lost, like maybe 68 people on their on their defense.
So, you know, and and Dont'a Hightower being one of them.
Who, you know, people around the league might not know as well some of the bigger names, but he's he's the quarterback of their defense, that is, that is their defensive Tom Brady or Cam Newton now.
But, yeah, they didn't they didn't look bad.
And let me tell you something if Russell Wilson doesn't get an M V P vote this year like he never has before, I'm not.
I'm never watching football again.
I can't do it because the disrespect is just unbelievable.
The guy, the guy is ends absolutely insane to watch.
I mean, listen, I don't care if it's a hot take or not, and I got into a big old argument in the groups in the chat.
Michael, I don't know if you saw any of it.
Uh, I think that the weapons that that Russell Wilson has is average.
I wouldn't say that there.
I wouldn't say that they're anything crazy.
And, you know, I had people saying, Oh, no, you know, they're They're higher tier.
You know, I put I was with you.
I put, yeah, I put average.
I'm not saying that their garbage, You know, they everybody likes twisting my words.
I didn't say they were bad.
I putting average.
As you know, 12 13.
There's how many teams in the league? 32? Yeah, exactly.
So they're around the around the average mark, and you know, it's e.
Don't think he does, either.
I don't even think Metcalf does.
I think he has the size and speed that he's just gonna be a freaking.
Here's my thing, you know? And I still think, Listen, you can argue with me all day about Jalen Ramsey.
I still think Gilmore is the best cornerback in the week that listen, that throw that Wilson made two d k.
Metcalf was beautiful, literally.
Gilmore was on top of D K.
Metcalf, and it didn't matter because he the ball, he was just right straight into the pocket.
It didn't even matter.
So Russell Russell Wilson is unbelievable.
He had five passing touchdowns.
I think the Patriots defense gave up five passing touchdowns all of last year.
So it is, uh, it was something to behold and listen just real quick.
Julian Edelman is a Super Bowl M V P.
He has the most.
I think he has the second most catches in playoff history.
He's the most right.
I think he's, I don't think I don't know if he has the most yards.
I don't know if it's the most.
I know it's up there.
Yeah, I know he's up there, you know, it's it's and it's not like it's some no name people.
He's only behind Jerry Rice.
So you know you are the greatest receiver of all time.
