You know, I'm disappointed.
You call me the part like Prince.
You didn't even let me in on that soccer. Partly.
What are we doing here? We'll see.
It was the first one that I received from him.
So I wanted to vet it before I passed it out.
Because the last thing I want to do is, you know, and he sent me another one today.
A three team er I should hit.
I'm like, All right, this dude is a soccer.
God, God bless this guy, man.
This guy's this guy's this guy's, uh, English Premier League expert.
E mean, that's 10 games.
He's pretty Predicted correctly.
Listen, power to you because I couldn't tell you the first thing about soccer.
I'd rather paint my grass green than watch soccer.
So, do you have parents? What part of the U.
E? Listen, everybody thinks that New York is just the city.
It's not the city.
Oh, no, I was just asking because you know, all the all the pictures on your instagram is you taking it with Takashi.
Now there's alright, man, but back to the serious stuff stuff.
Football, Thursday night football.
Did you catch this game? I did catch some of it You know, I was doing Backstop Andrew and Michael over on the MLB page.
But, you know, looking at that final score, I might be a little happy that I didn't catch the full entirety of it. I know you.
You had some fantasy stakes in this, so I know that you watched a lot more reason. I did.
So it might be a little rough for you, though.
I'm never starting meet you again.
Not until by weeks.
I'm never starting Menchu again.
Two weeks of, like, teasing me that Menchu mania Israel.
And then I got a Miller Lite Minshew hangover.
And I regret everything.
Uh, and one of my buddies has, uh, as Ryan Fitzpatrick.
And I'm facing him in three different leagues because I'm in 18.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is smoking me with those 29 points.
But Ryan Fitzpatrick, let's talk about his performance today.
He's either Ryan fits tragic or Ryan fits magic.
And he was magic today. He was.
He looked like he hasn't been in the league for 14 years.
The way he was running around, I had his rushing player prop underscore Alex Valadez, where I put all my player props and he hit that in Like by the end of the first quarter beginning of the second quarter, Uh, he ran the ball quite a bit.
Got got the quarterback draw.
He was amazingly efficient.
I mean, e think he was up to at least 14 passes without an actual incomplete pass.
He finished 18 of 20 160 yards.
Not great, but to two touchdowns.
I I'm impressed.
I mean, look, I know that a lot of people are saying, Hey, let to let Thio led to a free.
You know, we just had just a nerd vert have amazing performance against the Kansas City Chiefs.
But I think with the Dolphins, it's a different situation because the Chargers they are a team with a lot of weapons.
They have a defense that can kind of keep them in games as opposed to with the Dolphins.
You know you have a defense that you know they'll have some games, but you know, like last week against the Bills, they got for 400 yards with my progress.
So working project.
And you know, they didn't have Byron Jones this game.
I mean, I just think that the weapons on offense I mean, you only have one clear cut receiver in Devante Parker and then two guys that are kind of, you know, showing some promise.
You know, Preston Williams after a strong, uh, start toe last year before that, a c l injury.
And then we have Isaiah Ford, who has really established himself as another receiver in this offense that, you know, could be something on.
Then Miles Gaskin has ruined everybody who drafted Jordan, Howard and Matt burritos like lives with 22 carries.
I mean, this team is not set up his injury history.
Let him let him relax.
Let him let him kind of be a part of the team that's being built for the future.
You know? What are your thoughts on on Fitzpatrick and ultimately to And when when you think we should see him? Yeah, it's It's a lot of what you said for sure.
You know, Fitzpatrick, we've seen we've seen the stretches.
There's, you know, moments during his career that he's gone three or four games.
You know, last year you can remember in Tampa Bay, where he got off to that really hot start as well came out decked out like to Sean Jackson.
But he it's weird, man.
He he's so hot for some games and then he just cools down.
You know, like you said, it's either tragic or magic.
And, you know, it's weird being a Patriots fan seeing him, you know, with the Dolphins.
It was always in my head, kind of like, Oh, yeah, it's gonna be a win.
And the next thing you know, it's It's like you said You don't really see him as a He's not a dual threat quarterback.
Let's be honest here.
He's not, you know, to Shawn Watson, Russell Wilson or anything by that by any stretch of the imagination.
But it's those key, annoying third downs that you think you're going to get the team off of the field in a big moment.
You're like, Oh, third and six, it's right.
If it's Pat, it's Ryan, you know, and he's just gonna go down.
And then all of a sudden he scrambles for 10 years and is like, Where the hell did that come from? So it's it's those little annoying things.
I I honestly think just because off the way that the NFL has been going that we're going to see to, uh, eventually this year.
I kind of predicted like week six.
I don't know how I feel about it now, but I especially would have felt good about it if they lost this game, because I think if they lose this game, go down, you know? Oh, and three that you're really gonna have the Dolphins fan base, you know? Say, listen, we drafted to we all want to see him.
Let's get the, uh let's get the ship rolling here, but you're going to see to eventually this year.
I think I don't know if it's gonna be, you know, after a bye week when they start playing teams that aren't, you know, as good as some of the teams that they played already.
But I do think you're going to see to a eventually this year, but, you know, you gotta give Fitzpatrick props for tonight.
I think a lot of teams are a lot of people probably had the Jags going into this game.
I know I did, even though I think something to look at for sure it's shark being out because that is a big loss.
That is their primary number one receiver.
But, hey, you got to give him his props When? When they're Dio and then Matt, just to kind of give you a quick heads up.
So we were just talking about how you know Fitz Fitzpatrick.
You know, he's either fits magic fits tragic.
Hey, had a hell of a game today and, you know, I was just kind of saying that I think they should just kind of keep rolling with Fitzpatrick really tryto wait on allowing to to get in here because Herbert, he had amazing performance.
And, you know, that Chargers team is a well, is a well built team, as opposed to this Dolphins team that's still trying to build through the draft.
Still trying to acquire guys uh, Thio ultimately make to a successful.
So I'm on the side of, you know, try to probably not play two of this year, and Connie is on the side of we're going to see him. Just it's inevitable.
What are your thoughts? Map? I kind of agree with what? What? You said, Alex, I would rate I would wait onto a I mean to A was pretty much injury prone in college.
I mean, yeah, he stepped in as a freshman at half our national championship game and won the title for Obama.
But ever since then, he's every year kind of had a Knick and knack and an injury.
So in my my personal opinion, I kind of think to a would be in by Week 13 when they play the Bangles just to get the job.
Borough to a talk about all the matchup.
Just because by Week 13 I believe the Miami Dolphins will be out of the playoffs out of playoff contention.
So why not just go into a weeks 13 to 17 and see what he's got in a short in a short sample span? So I'd personally wait.
You know, if they're out of the playoffs by Week 13 I go into, uh, if they're still competing, then don't put them in and you know, because the one thing you don't want to have happened is what the Washington football team last year with Dwayne Haskins, where they just simply throw him in the fire.
And he's just not ready, you know, because that's kind of what the Wayne Haskins was last year.
Week for Jay Gruden just simply was selfish.
And just like you know what? I'm about to get fired.
Let me just throw in this rookie in the fire against the Giants, even though he was ill prepared and was not ready, and it showed.
And now you know, the Washington football team.
They're forced to start Haskins because that that's how I felt my opinion.
They were forced to start asking just because you don't throwing rookie in the fire a week. Four.
Have them start that season and then just bench him all of next year.
That will just take a shot at his confidence.
So I personally I would just wait.
Wait for to, uh, if he's fully 100% healthy, go ahead and put him in if you're out of the playoffs.
But if you're still somehow competing for a playoff spot by Week 13 then just keep going with its magic.
But this game was just if it's magic game, you know, I had Jackson going in this game.
I saw Ryan Fitzpatrick the first two games really wasn't, you know, Peak Fitzpatrick.
But you know this game against Jacksonville.
We just saw Peak fits magic, you know, tip the cap toe to Miami and kind of like what? You guys said the Jack was not having De Jade Shark really made a huge impact because that was kind of Gardner Minshew guys.
So that will be an injury toe Look out for hopefully, it's not a long term injury, because if it is, then Jacksonville is gonna be gonna be in trouble.
Yeah, and And Menchu's performance? Yeah, I wanna highlight that.
So with the Jaguars there, obviously they they basically got rid of majority of the team that, you know, was a part of their last playoff run, which is 23 seasons ago.
Uh, Gardner Minshew has in the first two games, really made it an entertaining kind of thought that can the Jacksonville Jaguars, you know, stay, you know, relatively competitive.
You know, no one's no one's shooting them in into the playoffs.
But you know, Gardner Minshew is not somebody that eyes looking to just tank for next year either.
I mean, do you think the Jaguars are You know, if he plays well, they're going to be in a position where they're gonna have to kind of keep him and maybe believe that he's their guy.
Or do you think men choose just a stop gap solution until they get, uh, you know, maybe one of these young rookie quarterbacks that are coming out of the draft.
Do you think, Connie it Zsa cha hard situation? Honestly, because I feel like he's showing you flashes of, you know, being a solid quarterback.
And I think, you know, last year when he started everybody, you know, it was kind of a joke at first because, you know, we got the mustache and, you know, kind of like a It looks like a frat boy for being honest with you, you know? So But he showed flashes of being, you know, a solid quarterback.
Do I think he's gonna be, you know, a top five quarterback in the NFL? At one point? Probably not.
But, you know, we've kind of seen by, you know, with NFL playoff teams that if you have a solid team around him, which he does not right now, because, as you said, they traded away everybody and their grandmother who had talent so they don't have anything on that team besides chart pretty much.
But I think I think that they're gonna end up keeping him because there's, you know, there's a three quarterbacks this year that are coming out of draft.
Obviously, we all know Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields coming out, and I can't remember the third kids named the kid from Dakota State.
Yes, so and he and he's coming out as well.
So if they're that high in the draft, I don't know if you can say no.
But the problem is, I think, mince you might win them off a couple games that they didn't expect to win, so it kind of might drop them down like I could.
I could see, you know, the Jets being worse than them.
I mean, obviously, I mean, just look at them.
I could see, you know, especially with Barkley going out.
The Giants being worse.
You know, a few other teams that could compete, and, you know, they do technically have their quarterback with Sam Garland and and you know, Danny Dimes over there.
But when you have a high draft pick like that, you could get someone like a Trevor Lawrence or maybe Justin Fields and, you know, maybe they don't have the confidence in their quarterback.
Or I just I don't know if if the Jags were gonna be in the spot and you know, even then they could trade up for the pick, but I might stick women to Honestly, he's not e.
I don't think he's a stopgap.
I think he could be a starting quarterback.
And if not, he will be a **** solid backup somewhere.
Yeah, I agree as well.
I think Gardner Minshew is a guy where they're gonna They started long term.
I mean, he kinda he kinda embodies, you know, like the Florida man mentality.
I mean, Gardner Minshew Where are the place to be? Besides Jacksonville, Florida? Like that's that's a perfect fit for him.
The way how he came in last year, started in for injured Nick Foles, and he didn't do to that first.
At one point there were, like, four and 44 and five and people were, like, Okay, maybe they could make a chance.
And then obviously they sank back to reality and, you know, had a bad record but kind of cog.
What you're saying, Anthony, There Gardner Minshew is gonna find a way to win those games that they didn't expect to win.
I mean, look at Week one when they play the Indianapolis Colts.
Nobody expected Jacksonville toe win that game.
But they somehow found a way to win it.
And they were pretty competitive with Tennessee, you know, a week to, you know, they were almost there, almost two and o, you know, and that week to match up, you know, they just felt fell a little short.
But, you know, I just think now that kind of starting a sink back in reality, Uh, now one thing I will say that will change is if they do somehow finished in the top three and have a chance to get Laura.
I feel like if they have a chance to get Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields, they'll they'll draft them.
But if they're in a position where Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields already taken, there's really no reason to take Trey Lance when you have Gardner Minshew.
So you might as well get maybe a Jamaar chase in the draft, depending on where where you're situated in the draft.
But you know, like I said before.
If Jacksonville is in the top three and they have a chance to get loans or fields, I'd say go for it.
If not, then just simply stick stick with Gardner.
And you know what, Gardner? Minshew? I mean, just the way he performs.
I mean, he's such a new electric player.
I mean, last week, with Italians, I mean, they were down by a bunch.
He never wavered.
I mean, this game I was kind of thinking the same thing, like, Oh, man, like this Miss, you come back is gonna be fantastic.
And then he ultimately struck.
Yeah, you know, it was it was it was a tough loss, for sure.
You know, meant you, You know, you could tell that chart was missing in this offense, but, you know, I wanna highlight low, viscous channel a player.
Can I say one thing about mention before we go on? For sure, for sure.
I think that this is a very important year, though, for him because last year I feel like it's ah, lot of rookie quarterbacks go through where they don't have where teams don't have tape on them.
So, you know, you kind of can catch people by surprise.
Honestly, I think the Chiefs had tape on Herbert.
He probably would have played as well.
But now that teams have have tape on Menchu, I look for this, you know, to see, because this is when you can really prove if you're that guy, when teams finally have tape on you, can you adjust the things and you adjust the coverages when they're doing things that are taking you out of your element? So I just want to throw that out there as well.
Yeah, I mean, for sure.
I mean, the biggest thing is, once you kind of come in and you do well, it's being able to keep doing that when a game plan is starting to kind of be revolving around you or involving you.
So, yeah, definitely.
I definitely see that.
But with a viscous should know, you know, player who I was very, you know, intrigued by his, uh, his role in this offense just because we knew he was great in the running game.
Uh, you know, in college he was involved in the passing game.
Very versatile player.
Now there was an interesting comparison that was made during the game, and they made a comparison to him with Taysom Hill.
Now Taysom Hill.
You know, I thought somebody said, How dare you disrespect, uh, Leviticus, Chanel saying that, you know, what are your initial thoughts in these first three games of? You know, Levesque is considering he's been involved in the running game.
The passing game, Uh, generally kind of in a playmaker role.
Matt, Any thoughts on him? I thought I thought you did pretty good.
I mean, for for the short, short amount of role that that that he's been in, you know, I'm impressed.
On what? What he's able to dio, you know, he seems to be to be a great versatile kind of guy.
You know, you said he's utilizing the run game in the past came and you know, that's that's always good when you have a guy that could be utilized in and both facets off of the offense.
Obviously, you know, he's no deejay chart, but, you know, if you need someone to fill in, you know, he could make you make a couple of plays here and there.
And, you know, he could be a weapon where You know, Jackson, you could look at him, you know, in the future and be like, Hey, you know, this This could be this could be our receiver guy from issue in the future to pair up with chart because it seems like right now the main weapon in Jacksonville is D J H Arc.
And then the rest is just wide open.
You know, you have Chris Conley.
You know, even the rookie Colin Johnson.
You know, it's it's why is wide open for anybody's game for that next next receiver.
So it'll be interesting to see how how he plays.
But so far in the short sample, you know, I like what he's able to do.
What about you, Connie? You know for sure? If you could have a player that could be involved in all assets of the game, you might as well use it.
You see what the Saints have done with Taysom Hill? You know, obviously you said that they made that comparison during the game.
But listen, if you can get somebody involved in, you know, all facets of the game, whether that be receiving rushing, passing, like Taysom Hill does Well, you might as well do it.
I know it definitely doesn't hurt.
Yeah, I mean, it's not.
It's not anything near the same thing, but I'll just compared to what I know.
You know, being a Patriot fan, where you can throw it to Edelman and then Edelman can, you know, get the end around.
And we've also seen that beautiful, beautiful toss that he made during the Ravens playoff game that one year for the touchdown of Danny Amendola.
So if you could get somebody that like that on your team, you know, Ah, Swiss Army knife, it's Everybody likes to call it listen, go for and And if you can find a way to use them properly and get them involved in all facets and they're actually affected because, you know, listen, you can you can try to get somebody involved all they want, but if they're not effective, it doesn't matter.
Tom Brady's a great quarterback.
I wouldn't want him, you know, being my running back.
But listen, if if they're effective, you might as well do it.
Yeah, And then Robinson has also been the guy who kinda has stepped into this role as the lead back and really hasn't given the, uh, coach or coordinator any reason to not get him the ball.
Armstead was the guy who was the favorite after for net left, and then he had his coat.
Is was it a positive cova test, I believe was what kind of kept him out? I think so.
I don't think it was an injury related situation, but yeah, I mean, Robinson looks fantastic out there.
Almost like just a wrecking ball.
I mean, some of the plays.
I mean, he's not shying away from contact.
He broke a lot of tackles physically, and to me.
I mean, I was very impressive.
I continue to be impressive.
Robinson, do you guys think that Jacksonville Jaguars may have inadvertently found their running back for the future? Matt E.
I think they have.
I mean, the way the way of Robinson has looked I mean, he looks fantastic.
I mean, I even saw like, this game against Miami Dolphins, there are some place where it looked like, Oh, you know, he's just gonna only gain, you know, 23 yards, and then you just see how the whole he just boom burst through and then fights for a first down.
I mean, there there have been some great great flashes of of Robinson so far at this point.
And, you know, I truly believe they have stumbled upon their the next running back for the future because, you know, for Jackson, that's kind of what you want.
You know, you obviously have have a lot to replace and rebuild, but you just want to see what your young guys were able to do.
And, you know, if you could keep it up, then that's just the same draft pick that you don't have to worry about.
You know, you guys can tell me if I'm if I'm dumb or not.
It's a great possibility, But does it remind you a little Oh, now this Check out blitz boys, though when tell me doesn't a little bit of Shane Marine, you know, because I feel like I feel like I would say James White.
But I think he's a mawr complete runner on.
I feel like Shane Greene was a great receiving back in, but we could also, you know, if you really wanted to he's coming at you, he'll he'll he'll he's not going to shy away from contact, but yeah, you know, I feel like everybody looked at for getting rid of for that as you know.
And you know, it is because I think he has potential to be a very, very good running back for sure.
But, hey, you know, you stumbled upon somebody that's probably making a lot less money, then and for net was.
And now you can put that money into other pieces.
And if he's going to keep performing the way he does like he did tonight, then hey, you definitely found a diamond in the rough and shout out toe whatever person on the staff figured out that he was that guy.
Yeah, let's let's switch it over to the other backfield Now Myles Gaskin has emerged as the lead back in Miami, and I'm gonna be honest with both of you.
I had Jordan Howard penned is the number one back here Before that, I had to read I as the number one back, so we were both What about you, Matt? Just initially, who you have initially initially I had my break up.
I mean, you could make a case, by the way, for Breda or Jordan.
Howard, you know, both former top backs of the squads.
I mean, we have to Jordan Howard.
He was used to be the made back for Chicago before he got moved to Philadelphia and is now now in Miami.
But, you know, that was definitely unexpected.
Say same with Matt.
You know, Breda was kind of like the number two talk to number two back in in San Francisco.
You know, when you look at it was pretty much Coleman Brita and then moster and eventually, you know where he most It was great and they decide.
You know what? Matt Barreto? We don't need you.
You could go to Miami now and now is just most of the Cannon and and Coleman.
But I'm very surprised at the way how how the running game has pretty much changed in Miami, you know, just unexpected, because the unexpected emergence of of the running back, you know, besides Brita and Howard, I'm just impressed that what? He's what he's able to dio, you know, through first three weeks and obviously you know, it would be interesting to see if if he could keep it up throughout the whole rest of season because, you know, short sample size three weeks.
But, you know, if if they could keep it up throughout the whole season, then they might have got themselves a potential run game.
Because if you could have, like, two or three solid running backs, then you got yourself some good right there.
Yeah, I mean, 22 carries.
Howard and Brita had three carries each.
And I mean, Jordan Howard at least solidified that goal line.
Uh, that Colin role, because he's averaging, like, six or seven fantasy points a game and keep in mind scoring a touchdown a week, Essentially.
So, I mean, he's always been a bruiser, so I mean, he had 33 carries for a yard and Brita had three carries for four yards and Gaskin Gaskin had a good average.
He was at three, but a lot of it was at the end when they were just stacking the box, were running the clock out.
So, you know, I also kind of look at that, too.
But I mean, I have been impressed with you asking.
I mean, he was targeted.
Hey, Got five receptions for 29 yards, which is encouraging if you have your lead back also, you know, getting involved in the passing game on I I'm gonna be honest with both of you.
My group chat has been killing me every dolphin game because I was talking of Howard so much that I convinced some of them to buy some shares and dynasty and redraft.
So, uh, yeah, I'm kind of look very smart right now.
You know, I'm like you think I am Alex and Josh, because hold on, pop spot, spot, spot, spot.
Oh, that's blitz.
Don't Don't try to make it like I'm slandering you.
Yes, I guess it is.
But I I drafted breed in a few of my parents the leagues and ended up flipping him because I tried.
I convince people that he was going to be the number one back, So I now look like a super genius.
And listen, don't get me wrong.
It was all locked because I genuinely, genuinely thought that three would be the number one back there.
But, you know, listen, he came out of nowhere.
And, you know, I watched, you know, the beginning before I went on backstop banter with Michael.
And it was I felt like he was involved in every single play.
And listen, if you had, if you had him as the number one running back, you're smarter than a lot of people out there.
So congratulations to you, whoever had it.
I actually started Myles Gaskin this week in one of my leagues and didn't do too bad, but yeah, like like Matt said, This is a small sample size.
Can he ultimately keep this role? Essentially, Bryan Flores has said, you know, he's gonna keep on feeding the hot hand and even even if that is the case, I mean, he didn't really give Brita and Howard very many attempts to even show that they have the hot hand.
So I mean, I like it.
I mean, look, Brian Florida's a coach who I think could really turn this Dolphins franchise around, Uh, the fact that, you know, they went from a dumpster fire two seasons ago toe this past year, coming in and being competitive, I mean, they were down down the stretch of the season.
They were impressing me. They had some close games.
They would be like a 500 team.
They actually look that up before we jump on that train recruit they were.
They were the final nine games of the season.
They were five and four because they were, They were Oh, and seven.
And then they finished the season five and 11.
Mhm five and 11.
No, I mean, they they were there.
And I'm gonna be honest with you.
I do kind of attributed to, like, the change of culture because we all know Adam Gaze is just ruining the New York football Jets.
And to me, everywhere Adam Gates goes Oh, you mean the offensive genius? Hey, except Peyton Manning.
At least they ruined it is like I went on a I don't know if you guys saw, but I went on a on a little rant about the Jets, and I'm not even a jet fan.
As we said, I'm a Patriots fan, but, you know, being in New York, I have to watch them like, uh, listen, we're not starting this.
And I started this one either your way, but your camera Just turn your camera.
I'm in my brother's room this time.
So if I did turn my camera, you would think I'm an Eagles fan.
This house is kind of weird, bro.
My brother's an Eagles fan.
How was your That was your brother.
Your brother gets a nag on you for, like, the whole year, and then he's back.
He's like a He's like a fake sports fan who were like he likes Hey, no, no, Like, he like, he will play fantasy stuff and he's like, really involved in it.
But it's I think I'm just a sports, you know, addict.
So I don't I look at I look down on him, but But anyway, you know, actually, now I forgot where I was going with this.
Oh, I don't get Adam get terrible.
He said the fact that he has another coaching job is unbelievable.
Maybe he can be an offensive coordinator, but the Jets hired him.
The Jets hired him before his body was even cold from getting fired with Miami.
And now you know what? He Johnson's over here saying that he's an offensive genius.
Still, where's the where's the genius? You don't even know that Libyan Bell is on your team.
What's funny? What's funny is the Jets had to play the Dolphins twice a year, and yet they're like, Hey, let's go with Adam Gays.
Let's pick him as a There were so much they were.
So they were better qualified head coaching candidates besides Adam.
Heck, I wouldn't even been okay if they would have had Greg Williams as their head coach.
I feel like their defensive corner Greg Williams, is a better qualified I e.
Well, I mean, there there are also other.
There are other candidates, says Well, I felt like Mike McCarthy should have went to the New York Jets.
He shouldn't have sat out.
Ah, year, I felt like he was a qualified coach.
I thought he should have been the head coach for Cleveland or New York last year, and obviously they did not learn.
And, you know, the Browns.
They decided to go with the guy Freddy Kitchens who stunk, and the Jets decided, Hey, let's have a bright idea.
Let's pull out, um, gays and the first press conference.
All you see is just do this looking around looking like a deer in headlights looking like he went up, went up a little line beforehand.
So it's like It's like when you saw that press conference, you news.
Oh, boy, the Jets were gonna be a Dumpster fire, because why would they hire a head coach whose eyes were just mind boggling? He's looking around the room like you. Everybody thought.
Sam Donor, We're seeing ghosts.
Adam Gates was seeing ghosts the minute he stepped in the press conference.
I mean, it has just been terrible.
And Anthony, I sat out the Jets for giving me Bill Belichick.
Hey, one day what? What has have happened and one day for you to resign from the head coach, Like one day he's hired.
The next day, you just see Bill Belichick.
I decided toe resigned from New York Jets after one day, I'll catch you later.
I'll go over to the New England Patriots decide toe draft Tom Brady Goto nice, Google's and win six, and you know on the reason why the New England Patriots are so successful and I've turned Cam Newton in tow win. Newton.
You like the creativity I got.
I got wind Newton instead of Cam Newton Wind Newton Hey, man, I'm trying to turn Connie into a Cam Newton fan before the season's over because he's like only one of the few Patriot you can do is looking good.
You gotta Kansas Swagger.
Cam Newton adds swagger that the Patriots never had the papers.
Never e want only swag that I want another Super Bowl parade.
So I don't care who does it for me.
So if you wanna know, would be the greatest, Greatest NFL head storyline is if the Buccaneers fail in the playoffs and the Patriots won Super Bowl 55 could you imagine all the first take Alli Gotta stay is Max Kellerman would be like I told you so I told you it was Bill Belichick.
Oh, my God, that would be hilarious.
Connie would be crying cause he wouldn't know who to support.
The Patriots were being sad for Brady.
Know what? He's ready? He was.
He got a seven Super Bowl.
Connie would have seven rigs.
He could go up in the group, chat and be like, not one e to your faith.
Three What you're gonna ask me right now? What am I gonna ask? If the Patriots and Bucks playing the Super Bowl, who would I root for? Which that wouldn't happen.
But But if that did happen this year, you know you go New England.
Come on. Now, I'm gonna support you.
Gotta support your team.
But if you see, that's the thing that I have.
This theory that that that Connie is a is a is a Brady fan.
And he's trying really hard not to follow him.
No, Here's how it goes.
Ready? If the Patriots and Bucks played, I'm rooting for the Patriots.
But I wouldn't be as angry if they lost to a team like the, you know, the Seahawks or something.
Because they lost the CRC, I'd be ****ed and they lost to the Bucks.
I'd be like, It's understandable because of Brady.
Yeah, so if they were, if they were, if they were Jamis Winston at quarterback and somehow Jamis Winston beat the E, I would throw up like I did with Nick Foles beat us.
That is so awesome that Nick Foles beat you guys Think Brady threw for over five Brady threw for over 500 yards and still lost.
Listen, E was control this.
That's literally the definition of putting your team on your back.
And you still stop short because you got strip sack.
Let's reel this back into Thursday Night football with I would love it to keep on ****ting on Connie and create eagles.
Hey, there's something you can do. He's got six rings.
No, that's that's got six rings.
You could only I mean, Green Bay's got four.
I mean, it's still not Yeah, My team matches him, but 11 Pittsburgh 11 Yeah.
One coach and one quarterback have essentially all of them for the sake here, that's that's honestly look, I'm gonna be honest with you in terms of legacy.
That is so ****ing impressive because nine Super Bowls in a salary cap.
Listen, this is my This is my favorite thing.
You know, that Brady is more is more likely to go to a Super Bowl than LeBron is to make a free throw.
What? Say that again.
If you take the numbers and you, you know, do the percentage Brady is more likely to went to go to a Super Bowl than LeBron is to make a free throw.
Get your stash ass out of here.
Well, let's see.
He's a calculation.
So he's been He's been in the league.
For what? This is his 22nd year or 21st.
This is 21st, 21st year.
So he's been in nine Super Bowls.
That's already almost 43%.
And what was LeBron's free throw percentage? Uh, LeBron's free throws gotta be like in the sixties.
Oh, well, that love.
It's the sixties, then, LeBron, Listen.
Maybe maybe not anymore.
But like I know back in the day e gotta look it up.
That's that's pretty close.
Yeah, that's not even close.
Yeah, I was gonna say, Look, look a c.
Perry can't hear you with that stash.
That stash is full of lies.
He's trying to be like ornaments.
But he doesn't have the airflow.
I have a better deal.
No, I do not. Not me.
Kidding me was always down here real quick.
Who do you think wins more games for the rest of the season? The Jacksonville Jaguars or the Miami Dolphins? They're both one and two.
Who's gonna have more wins for the kids? Know where I would go with the Dolphins? Because I think that they're a better team.
I go Dolphins as well.
I feel like this office at the moment are a better team.
And they showed shampoo recommendations.
No, no, real quick. Share it, Matt.
Conning Share that.
I think I just playing team.
I don't I don't know what I use.
I just look, and it's just like as long as the shampoo has got like, they couldn't make your hair better.
Like clean, like, cleans up the hair.
Makes it all flowy, I guess that Z What? How it is.
And then on Li, like after a shower, I called my hair back and check it out.
And then that's it.
There you have a Perry.
That is the secret to the long locks.
You know what? I want to see J.
It takes It takes a couple months to think this doesn't This doesn't appear in a day.
It takes a couple of months of progress.
Got to get you some main in town.
I don't know what that is, but I sound very, very concerning.
Is that like, ponytail Or like man Bun or something? Or text explaining the shop? Um, it actually said that tax, actually, but yeah, I want to say the Jaguars, I really want to, because I think, but just it's hard to go against a team like the Dolphins.
Who you know, they're young.
Uh, no, I I can't remember how to say his last name.
Their rookie who, you know, unfortunately, got burned on.
Yeah, you're talking about I e IES it.
No, uh, big Ben.
You did not say like the announcer, so I don't know.
They probably have a pronouncement.
Yeah, well, you know, I definitely think the Dolphins will win more games and the Jaguars think the Dolphins will kinda, you know, come to life and they're gonna win some games.
I mean, they almost beat the bills last week.
Like, let's not forget that thunder delay or not, like they almost beat the Buffalo Bills.
And that was with Josh Allen throwing for 400 dollars.
I found it, guys, I found it.
What year was it? What year was no Brady? Making the A F C championship game is more.
He's made the A F C championship game, 76.
5% of his career and LeBron's free throw percentage of 73 Drew Brees completion percentage of 74.
So he's more likely to make a F C championship game than than those people to do that.
Just saying, What do you reform? Basketball? The thunder? You just everywhere.
But it's very weird.
Don't even get me started on your from from New York.
You support the Yankees.
Support the Patriots, which I understand.
It's in the same Little East like north Northeast region.
That's understandable, but you migrate from the Northeast all over the Midwest.
But, hey, you know what? Uh, I'm all around us.
Well, I mean, I like like the Dodgers, and then you know, it's the Packers all around, so it's understandable all around.
All right, so there's a night football we've pretty much talked about it all real quick.
Let's let's look at the games that we have this week, our teams, and just do a quick little chat.
We'll do Steelers.
We'll do the Patriots and we'll do the Packers and we'll each kind of give our take away.
And then then we'll end this dream.
All right, let let let's start with Connie Patriots Raiders Matt Before Connie gives us his thoughts, who do you think wins that game and why? Oh, Patriots with East this Cam Newton looked fantastic against Seattle, even though they lost 35 to 30 and they should have run a different play on the goal line.
That was the most predictable thing I have ever seen.
Once I saw the tight end go down and the running back go down.
I'm like, Awesome camera around the left.
But keep in mind, Cam Newton had a great game.
I said it was the best game I ever saw.
Cam Newton play in his career, and that includes Super Bowl 50.
I truly believe the game Cam Newton had.
He equated almost all of the Patriots 30 yards.
There was one point of the game where I think new England had, like, 397 yards and Cam had, like, 344 of those yards, mhm by himself.
So I was very impressed with what Cameron was able to do.
And we look in New England patriots.
They're a team that's gonna mix around.
They ran a lot in week one.
They passed along in week two.
And knowing knowing old Bill Belichick he's gonna look at the Oakland Raiders is back, uh, this defense is very easy.
E got on my little pull over.
Just gonna go through a camp.
Why don't you just, uh, keep on scrambling and they're going to keep on scrambling and they're gonna find a way toe, get the job done.
So I say patriots win with ease.
I wanna be surprised if it's a double digit win.
All right? Yeah.
I got the Patriots winning with ease.
I I'm sure the Raiders were gonna are gonna be on a high after, you know, getting their first victory in their stadium.
Uh, well, don't get used to that radio.
You're not gonna get that money just getting.
But I got the New England Patriots.
Let the camp m v P campaign Keep on role Just so Connie can, like, just finally finally embrace you as a quarterback and leader that you are.
Connie, what do you think? How about this? Before Connie goes into it, I want I want to have this happen If Cam Newton and wins M v p.
I want to see Anthony do the Cam Newton Superman with Cam Newton jersey on E p.
I swear to God I'll shave my head because that's not happening.
I swear to God way need to make that happen in the way live on board scores If Cam Newton was M v P.
Wager because that's my baby, all right, you have to do it like this.
Like while you're talking on the show like literally like this is no problem.
There's no problem.
E Yeah, the Patriots lost Thio.
What team would be in there? Wild card.
Oh, Buffalo way.
Patriots lost to the Bills in the playoffs, but NDP can do e way anyway, back to the game real quick.
I you know, I think the Patriots are gonna win this game.
I don't think it's gonna be as easy as you guys think it is because, um, Josh Jacobs? No, No, because Josh Jacobs is a grown man and the Patriots have struggled to stop, you know, good running back to you.
Obviously saw last year in the playoffs with Derrick Henry and and, you know, Darren Waller is a is a hell of a tight end as well.
If if everybody was scared that last year was gonna be a one hit wonder, he definitely proved that he is not always, know, 13 catches and a touchdown last week.
So I do have the Patriot winning this game.
I could see it, you know, being by, you know, six or seven. Something like that.
I don't think it's I don't think it's gonna be a super easy game.
Only because the Patriots have had trouble stopping, you know, running backs, especially missing Dont'a Hightower now and all their, you know, uh, popped out on the defensive end.
I think it'll be a little closer just because I I respect the running game of the Raiders and hey, if if their car is gonna play like that, we really don't know what's gonna happen.
But I still do have the Patriots winning this game.
Alright, Next game.
We got Mats Packers on Sunday Night Football going to get the New Orleans Saints.
Connie, Who's your pick? I actually did pick the Packers in this one on Lee because I don't know if Michael Thomas is gonna play.
I think it Michael Thomas plays.
It might change my mind a little bit because that it seems like to be, you know, the big goatee weapon, of course, for Drew Brees, who can't throw the ball more than 15 yards.
So I'm going to go with the Packers and this one.
I know Davante Adams kind a little banged up in the last game, but I'm hoping he plays.
And, you know, obviously Erin Jones went crazy last week.
You know, if anybody played him in fantasy like I did, I am so sorry you had to go through that.
But I do have the Packers money in this game. Probably.
You know, I think it'll be a close game that I think it would be like, you know, three or four points.
And then before we let Matt talk about his team, I'm sorry, Matt.
I'm going with saints.
I know you're probably gonna, like, go off on me in a second.
But I am making this pick on, you know, Davante Adams.
He hasn't been a practice.
And even if he does play, I think this game ends up being a little closer than, um, kind of like the way that their games have been the last two, where it's kind of been a little bit of a battle.
And then the packers separate themselves.
I think this one, uh it just won't happen for him.
I'm gonna roll the Saints in that defense to kind of make a bounce back.
I know that offense without Mike Thomas was very disappointing.
Alvin Kamara was one of the only highlights of that offense.
But I think this game around, we're going to see a different Drew Brees.
Alright, Matt, destroy me.
I'm not going to destroy you.
Sam and I had had a pre game show where we talked about the Packers and the Saints and we both had the Saints be being the Packers.
I mean, I can't I mean, the one.
I'm most concerned with this Kenny Clarke.
Kenny Clarke is our main man as a defensive tackle.
Obviously, Green Bay has struggled against the run me through two weeks, we've allowed 223 rushing yards and you know it's unacceptable, you know? Yeah, we played Dalvin Cook.
But the way how Detroit ran all over us, it's unacceptable.
Even if Michael Thomas doesn't play if Kenny Clarkson inactive, God help us against Alvin Kamara because Alvin Kamara he is something special.
I do think it's gonna be a close game, but I mean, I will say if Green Bay finds a way to win this game against New Orleans, you're gonna hear a lot of people on first takes.
A Green Bay has a legit chance to go far this year because a lot of people are saying, Oh, you know, it's San Francisco, It's Seattle, It's New Orleans, it's Tampa Bay and then you know it's Green Bay, you know, at number five, A lot of people are giving many credit, but if Green Bay you can find and I hope they do, you know, obviously me, me being a die hard fan.
I would love to see Green Bay beat New Orleans.
But like you said, Drew Brees is gonna be on a mission like they look terrible against the Raiders and they cost me a perfect 16 and record last week, and I was upset because I was 15 and, oh, going into that game and I was not perfect in that game.
I went 15 and one, so I definitely expect the New Orleans Saints to bounce back.
I mean, it's gonna be an exciting match up.
Obviously, a lot of people are gonna be paying attention to the Monday Night Football game between Pat Mahomes and Lamar Jackson to up and coming NFL players.
That could be Hall of Famers one day.
But I'm intrigued on Sunday night because those are two quarterbacks.
You know, our future Hall of Famers.
You know, Drew Brees and Aaron are just gonna be walking through Cannon, and I mean, you look at this.
Could potentially be a future playoff matchup.
This could be a playoff matchup you see in a divisional round or even a championship game.
So you know will be one of those where I'm definitely exciting toe watch.
Excited to watch, obviously, what I what I will believe is if Green Bay is fully healthy, if Davante Adams is ago and Kenny Clarke is ago.
I say Green Bay wins with East I'd say ease against the Saints.
I mean the way how the Saints looked against the Raiders like their defense.
About 34 points.
And they made Derek Carr Looks like 2016.
Derek Carr, like Derek Carr, looked fantastic in that game.
So as of right now, I am gonna go with the Green Bay with the New Orleans Saints over the Green Bay Packers.
But by the Sunday whenever we discuss our picks, uh, if Kenny Clarke and Davante Adams are active, I'm gonna think differently.
But as of right now, if Davante Adams and Kenny Clarke are inactive, it's gonna be New Orleans Saints.
But if Green based, fully healthy, ready to go, you best believe Rodgers is gonna head into that super Dole.
That bad man, I even say I even told Alex put 50 on Aaron Rodgers being M v P.
Because I think you can and he could walk into the Superdome and just Russell Wilson.
Yeah, that, too.
I could also see Russell Wilson as well, but you know that bad man Rogers he's been looking like a bad man, you know, he's been putting the whipping on the Vikings and and Detroit, and I've made Caleb and Steve look silly on their picks that they have made because Caleb in week one said Minnesota was gonna win and I said, That's a buffoon decision and it was a buffoon decision.
And Steve even put in Matthew Stafford for praise on his thing because he thought he really thought Detroit was Detroit Lions.
A team I can't get over the hump was gonna be three green and gold, and that didn't stand a chance.
Now I will say, Hold on.
If the Detroit line, if this was only a two quarter game way behind quarter doing, No way.
There were two quarters.
You were two quarters.
They'd be one in one.
If there are two point, they'd be one and one because we were up 17 14.
I have to go there.
Yeah, very competitive games that the lions getting to them. They just dropped the ball.
The end, the game zio no pun intended.
Their e didn't need to do that. I didn't need to do that.
That was pretty good fun.
But honestly speaking, right Now it's the Saints right now.
If the Saints lose this game, there's gonna be a panic button in New Orleans because Damp was right behind him. And I'm sorry.
12 is so highly on a mission because he's looking at Bill Belichick.
And just like, I want six doable championships with you and you disrespected me.
Let me go to Tampa.
Let me call my boy Gronk and let me try and beat the Saints in the NFC South.
And, you know, if Green Bay wins this game kudo to Green Bay, I'll be as happy as pie and be like, all right, don't get too high tech, but three and oh, looking pretty good.
You know, I could be part of three.
No club, but if we lose to the Saints, you know I'll be like, you know what? That's a good team.
They're bouncing back against the humiliation against the Raiders, and I wouldn't be surprised.
But the main games that I will be looking forward to our when we play Tampa after our bye week in Week six and that Thursday night game against banged up 40 Niners those are gonna be something and I hope we do the unwrapped.
That's whenever the Packers play the Bucks and the Niners.
Because I love to get Caleb and Mark on just, uh, you know, judicial back talk a little bit, because that's what was speaking of speaking of smack talk, Alex, who would stewards playing this week.
Why are you setting it up like that? Because I'm a little all right.
You know, I never when I would talk to me, but I think the Steelers won that game easy dubs for this.
Easy dubs I got Hey, Alex, I'm gonna be honest.
I was high on the Pittsburgh Steelers this year.
I'm going to talk before this year.
They were terrible years.
How many have you like? Have you been a Steelers games? I haven't.
I was supposed to go behind this year, though. Officially.
Go behind this here.
Had to cancel that that trip.
But Connie, Matt, you guys got Steelers Texans just just take it.
I am 100% hours.
The Steelers are the better team.
They have the better defense, and I'm gonna be honest.
I want to start to Shawn Watson in any fantasy leagues against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I think their defense is that good.
I I'm starting Rogers instead of Watson and one of my fans and leaves just because I believe Rodgers is gonna put on a clinic Mawr against the Saints defense than DeShaun Watson is with the Steelers defense.
Because Jason don't go Hopkins anymore, and it's definitely showing he doesn't seem toe have the number one guy anymore, And B o B looks looks terrible every day for not having DeAndre Hopkins.
Because I'm telling you, if the Houston Texas would have ran it back with that same team last year, they would have been competing in the top spot for the A f C.
But B o b is there GM and head coach, and he makes boneheaded decisions like a fake punt and a divisional round while still being up against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Yeah, honestly, this this game, like like if we drop this game is gonna be really concerning, because that that our defense in the second half of that Broncos game I mean, we almost gave that up.
Yeah, to Jeff Driskel, that was a that was that was very concerning.
I was very happy to get out of that and just, you know, extra info.
My my best friend is a Broncos fan and the Lakers Nuggets.
That day, I was like, I need to have the sweep just for ****s and giggles.
But yes, I know Lakers got the dub tonight, and there were three games toe one over the Denver Nuggets.
Now, Denver, the last two.
So I don't want to hear I don't wanna hear a **** thing about anybody saying that.
Uh, they got them right where they want him.
Okay, look, listen there, right there.
But this is King James.
This is King James and a D.
This is This is a different beast, Mr Flopper.
80 who? Making it look like he got shot in the ankle and then got up right away.
You gotta sell it wondering.
LeBron is 14 to know when he's up 31 in the playoffs.
Siri's 14 to no A I'm gonna be honest.
If the Lakers somehow blow a 31 lead, it'll be laughable.
If the Lakers somehow blew through only which I don't think they will.
Yeah, but they're not.
I'm just I'm just saying if they blow 31 lead, it would be laughable because just like, wow, like, yeah, let's let's hope we go into the N b A Finals and play the Miami Heat.
Have a lot of money.
Yeah, well, what's money got about that future is, But you made you sneaky little *******.
How much money? How much money is on the line if you win, How much money do you earn? Like, Are we talking thousands of dollars? 108 $100.
, and if I lose, then it's $50 that I already put.
And then I put $50 on the Lakers and the Heat to make the finals.
And I made that bet before the bubble started.
So that's looking.
So how much money would you get off that total if both hit, which I'm hoping they will, because they're both kind of in a prime position.
That's gonna be 1125.
Let's go, Denver.
Let's go. Denver.
Oh, come on, man.
You got You gotta let the man get his bread.
You got You gotta let the man eat and get his money as we wrap up real quick.

A group of friends had been doing ah weekly partly of $5.
They do about 14 15 player props or different bets and they finally hit it. They made a **** ton of money.
I think they each made, like 33 grand off each like their shares.
So Korean are going to do that? We're gonna do our own $5 super parlay every week on unwrapped beds were gonna post it so you guys can cheer along with us.
And maybe if you guys air feeling gutsy, you guys can jump on it to with a meager bed of $5 to make probably a couple 100,000 because of so many different player problems.
But definitely tune into that it's gonna be a blast.
And, uh, that is it for NFL unwrapped postgame recaps catches for Sunday morning recap and Sunday Night Football.
