Brendan What's up, everybody? Welcome into the sports Guy Mike Show K C B R.
10 40 100 mics FM dot com is well SportsCastr dot com What's up? Welcome in I'm your whole sports guy.
Mike, thanks so much for hanging out with us making this part of your day.
As always, fellas are running a little late.
They'll be in here it is Red shirt Friday, USMC.
Right there for you guys again.
Thanks so much for hanging out with us on this football Friday.
Like I said, the guys will be in here shortly, but we're gonna get some things.
We got a lot to get to.
It is football Friday, but, you know, we gotta talk about little MBA action that happened last night.
And, of course, we'll get Thio the Dolphins Jags Thursday night game last night.
There's some interesting NC double games from college games that we're gonna talk about as well.
And of course, we'll give you some of our game locks and are upset picks for today as well.
So make sure you stick around for that.
Got lots to cover today.
What's up, fellas? Alex in the house.
Got Ronnie in the house.
What's up, guys? Thanks for hanging out with us.
You know, we appreciate you.
So last night, Lakers won 14 Nuggets one away, and I gotta say so.
Chris Brain will be in shortly, but he text bronze a baby and joker got a horrible whistle.
So I just figured I'd, uh, share that with you guys.
But here's the thing.
There were some bad calls, and I don't want to sit here and get into how bad those calls were because they were pretty bad, right? We can all agree on that.
Um, I will agree with Chris a little bit as faras the Bron LeBron is a little bit of a baby.
And what I mean by that is certain calls have to go his way, Or he does tend to fit a little bit.
He does tend to get, uh what's the word I'm looking for? Hey, tends to get a little, uh, lippy with the referees, which for me is never a good thing.
I think you need Thio.
Look, I know you, LeBron James.
I know you've been playing 16 17 years since you are a wee lad.
But you're not always gonna get every call.
So So here's the thing, guys.
What I was talking about, right? I was talking about rebounds.
How rebound? To make the difference, especially defensive rebounds.
So to give you some perspective, like I truly love to dio, everything was pretty even, if you will.
Field goal percentage.
Three point percentage.
Even the turnovers were dead even at 11 turnovers apiece.
Now from the field, we're talking 50% vs 47 and Denver actually had the higher number.
Denver had the little bit of a higher number with the three pointers as well.
But again, you go back to the rebounds.
How crucial are they now? Granted, Jamal Murray getting kinda thrown to the ground and LeBron gets the rebound.
Uh, that was a little much for me.
I thought that that was a horrific Lee missed call.
They missed that one bad.
He Bogart ID that.
You know what out of him was very, very unfortunate.
But again, you can't put these games in the hands of the referees.
It just doesn't work.
You I know sometimes we like to use it as a crutch.
And as fans, as broadcasters, As you know, people, just even regular Spectators, you're like, Okay, so the referees were crappy, but you guys should have put yourself in a better position.
Toe win that game.
Now the rebounds.
The Lakers had 51 rebounds.
Good. It's crucial.
I probably say it on the show at nauseum.
Anthony Davis had 34 points last night.
He played for 41 minutes.
He went 10 for 15 from the floor, and he was spot on on his free throws. He missed one.
Now it didn't have a lot of rebounds, however.
The man in the middle that night, who only played 23 minutes, was Dwight Howard.
Guy had 11 rebounds, had 12 points, five or six from the floor.
You know nothing, you know, amazing with his point, but he did the job in the paint where they needed him on that glass.
LeBron had nine, and eight of them were defensive rebounds.
Those rebounds were crucial, and what made this game swing the way that the Lakers needed it to go.
And yes, as well as a couple missed calls.
I'm not the guy that will sit here, and I hate to blame the rest, but unfortunately, sometimes you have to.
Sometimes you have to call these guys out.
Okay, but at the end of the day, it still doesn't make it Didn't make the difference, in my opinion, because, quite frankly, watching that game and even going back and watching the highlights, there were some moments in there where tomorrow Murray was taking some very ill advised shots.
Hey, played 45 minutes.
He was 12 or 20 from the floor, 33 point shots, completely missed.
He was money from the free throw line.
He had a couple assists, he had eight assists and he scored 32 points.
So it wasn't a bad night.
He was just It just didn't click for them.
Now, regardless of all that, at the end of the day, what the question is is Now we are at a point where we are in the same position.
The Denver Nuggets are in the same position that they've been twice once again against the Utah Jazz once against the L A Clippers.
Both times these guys came back from a 31 deficit.
So the biggest question is, can Denver do it again? And I'm gonna tell you what My answer is coming up.
No, I'm just kidding.
I honestly, I would love for this to be some kind of miraculously come back on a team that has Anthony Davis, LeBron James, Dwight Howard.
I just I'm sorry.
I don't, uh I just don't see it, man.
I would love to.
In theory, it would be fantastic on paper.
Can it be done? I mean, they beat them.
They they should have been up to one last night.
Should have tied the Siri's is what it should have done.
But instead, now we're in the We're in a very similar situation here with these Denver Nuggets looking at the Lakers going, Are the Lakers gonna really let them rip off? Or I should say, tear off three games in a row.
E don't know, man.
I mean it zit doable.
Absolutely any anything can happen on any given day in the world of sports.
Look, a the Miami Dolphins and Ryan Fitzpatrick last night, which we'll get into here in a little bit.
But I mean, well, it's I just don't I just don't know if they have enough.
First of all, you gotta understand, to this Laker team is a much bigger, more physical team than the Denver Nuggets are.
I know that Yo kick is a beast, and I know he will.
He'll he'll leave it all out there.
Yeah, he had seven rebounds last night. It was okay.
Six for 13 at 16 points.
We needed more out of him defensively, for sure.
Last night we didn't get it, unfortunately.
But at the end of the day, if we're going to sit here and say, Can they get it done? Uh, I don't know, man.
I mean, I know they had quite Leonard in the Clippers, and I sat here on this program and said, Hey, you know, this is a team that is just so, so full of talent and so deep with talent.
I just didn't see them coming back from a 31 deficit.
Utah was a little more feasible, you know the optics of it.
You could go through and go.
Hey, you could see this happening.
It was a better matchup for them to come back that many games.
Clippers was very.
It was astonishing.
The Lakers would be almost impossible.
But what did they say? You have to have faith, right? I don't know if I have that much faith seeing what happened yesterday.
Mhm and they were really close.
Anthony Davis doesn't hit that shot.
It's 22 So but we'll have to see.
I will tell you this.
On Saturday, we'll find out and the Lakers Air six point favorite in this game.
I just I don't know.
I'm pulling for him, though.
I am truly, truly pulling for him.
Speaking of next, games up and closing it all out.
The Heat lead the Celtics 3 to 1 in their Siri's in the Eastern Conference final tonight.
Jimmy Butler and this unbelievable Miami Heat team can close this out.
Well, they do it.
I don't know, man.
They have so much depth on that team.
So so much death E.
Just this is another one that you're sitting here going.
Well, first of all, Miami Heat are only favored by three points in this game or excuse me Boston, right? And the reason they are is because now people are sitting here going, Well, look at all this talent.
Look, even people on ESPN's basketball power index have the Celtics winning this game.
They had the Celtics winning the last game, too.
Yeah, but yet here we are, and it's 31 Miami This'll one is a little tougher.
I honestly would like to see this turn around.
I'd love to see Boston Force a Game seven.
I actually think Boston can make this a Siri's, even though they're down 31 and come back and force a Game seven now.
Once you get to Game seven, I don't know.
Let's see how they play in the next two games if there is the next two games.
But tonight, Boston has to show up, and they have to take this game from Miami, and they have to take it forcefully.
Enis Kanter needs to be the guy in the middle.
He needs to be on those boards as much as possible.
Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart.
All this needs to come together for this Boston Celtics team.
I think they could get it done.
I think they squeak out a win.
I wouldn't touch those.
I wouldn't touch that spread, though, because it could be one point who knows.
But I think Boston gets it done, so we'll have to see what happens.
All right, uh, in other MBA news, the Philadelphia 70 Sixers, they are in pursuit of none other than Mike D'Antoni as their next head coach.
And, uh, it might be a part of a bigger plan that Philly has in mind.
And, uh, you know, we had Tony on their would kind of get his take on it.
Maybe we will after the break.
But John Clarke of NBC Sports in Philly has reported yesterday that some in the Sixers organization feel that hiring D'Antoni could ultimately help lure James Harden to Philly.
Now Harden, who played for D'Antoni, obviously in Houston for the last four seasons, um, can become a free agent in 2022.
Clark also mentions the possibility of the Sixers trading for the former M. V. P.
Now, Philly's interest in D'Antoni appears to be legitimate.
Recent rumors suggested that the team might make major roster changes if D'Antoni is hired.
Harden, who recently turned 31 is obviously an ambitious goal for the Sixers, but it could come to pass, Uh, if Houston decides to blow it up in the next couple of years.
Now, we know that Philly also had an interest in landing another big name of the Rockets organization as well.
I'm not quite sure what's gonna happen in Houston. I know.
What d Antoni being gone.
You know, the next thing is okay.
Is Russ and hardened the key.
Do we have to fix that? Is one of them have to leave again? Like they didn't.
Okay, See, e don't know if they're gonna be able to lure James Harden away from Houston.
I think they have a better chance of maybe getting Russell instead of instead of getting the beard.
I'm just saying I think that that's a stronger possibility.
E just don't know.
I don't know if that's something that they'd be able to pull off.
I know his contract's up, but then again, a lot of people didn't think he would leave.
Okay, See? And now he's in Houston.
So a lot of things to look at.
But that's what we have for the MBA coming up next.
We're gonna talk NFL Miami Dolphins Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday Night Football.
What a freaking head scratcher.
But I'll tell you why.
It's not such a head scratcher on the other side of the break, so you'll keep it locked.

What about the Buggles first video ever E v video killed the radio star.
That's a good We're getting old here, man.
We're getting We're getting older by the song e I was sitting there when MTV came on.
It was like it was like one of the greatest days of my life.
I remember when I first got cable in the first video was sweet out of mind and I seen at Rag doll That was like, Wow, this is This is video TV, man.
Yeah, what's what's really scary is I'm with Chris.
I was literally sitting in front of the TV with it on when it came on.
Remember Night flicks to Mike on TV? Yeah, yes, I would literally watch him from I think it went from 10 PM to 4 a.m.
Like Friday, Saturday night Every time I remember when yo MTV raps came out headbangers ball came out.
That's what about Adam Sandler.
Remember? He played what was his golly? He was on that show with calling, uh, anyway, Colin Quinn? Yeah.
He played remote control.
Yes, that was That was a great show.
Was that's when Colin Quinn was actually funny.
Yes, because as he's gotten older, he is not funny anymore.
And he wasn't really funny then, but he had a good little sticky.
Well, it worked.
It worked. It worked.
All right, so last night, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars.
What in the hell happened 31 to 13? You gotta be kidding me.
Fitzpatrick on Lee threw for 160 yards.
Let's get that straight.
But this fool was running his behind off, scored a rushing touchdown through for two and Gardner Minshew at 2.
75 through a pick.
There was nowhere to be found.
CB What the hell happened last night? Dude, I have to tell you, you don't really spy if it's magic.
So every time he like, every time he got past the defensive line, he had 10 yards to go before anyone touched him.
I'm going to tell you this.
I noticed something in that game that I think I have a lot of like faith in the dolphins.
Now, Bryan Flores seems like 100% control in control of that ship, and I think the Dolphins man going down the road.
That's a good team.
Are they a good team? No.
Now? No, not really.
But I can see what he's doing because I think, you know, I think the dolphins down the road are gonna be pretty **** good once they get to it.
And if to it would have played last night, those running lanes wouldn't have been there.
So that's kind of a advantage of the defense.
And, you know, Jacksonville is not a good football team and mince you.
I mean, he's he's like an average quarterback.
I don't have anything bad to say about him. He was right.
You know what I mean? You know, whatever.
Hey, and James Robinson will continue to be there, you know, short yard, you know, in the red zone, running back.
He really hasn't ripped off anything great yet, but I mean, hey, two touchdowns.
When they needed it, he was their tone.
What happened with this game? I'll tell you, man, a couple things happened.
Number one, the Miami Dolphins.
I I I thought this was gonna be to his night.
I thought fits magic was coming out through a couple of pics and I thought to it was coming and I was excited, but yeah, I was excited.
I was, but it didn't happen.
I think what happened for Jacksonville is D J Chart ruled out, you know, And you know, that's your number one receivers.
So Keeling Cole was now lined up with Xavi in Howard because Byron Jones didn't play.
So that gave him one less of a weapon to throw, too.
So there wasn't no disguise coverages and killing coals on the number one wide receiver.
So I think that was one of the issues that meant you had.
He didn't have this guy out there, number one to command coverage and number two to be able to throw two.
But with Miami, like Chris said, I mean fits.
We've seen fits magic through this so many times.
He just He's so good.
And I and we've also I love Bryan Flores.
I dio love what he did last year.
No matter what they traded away, he was like, Screw it, I don't care.
We're gonna win somehow.
We're gonna be exciting. We're gonna win.
So he's a really good voice out there for all those young guys in Miami.
You know the thing with James Robinson when you're when you're running back, becomes your number one receiver.
Exactly what's problem? You know, that means nobody could get open.
That just means nobody could get open.
You know, at the end of the day, you know, neither one of these teams are are very good, and I don't think either one of them are gonna make the playoffs.
However, it was still a little disconcerting.
Gardner Minshew a guy that and I'm sure for Jacksonville fans had to sting a little bit, too, because they were waiting for this guy.
Just kind of be there, guy.
They want him to be the guy.
And he It's not that he wasn't It was just There were a lot of miscues.
Ah, lot of them yesterday.
And like you said, Ryan Fitzpatrick took full control and advantage of those lanes being open.
And them not really worrying about him taking off that did not look.
What is he, 37? Yeah, I've been in the league like 17 years or something to 14 or 17.
I don't remember what We asked Alexa last night, and she told us they forgot about Levis CA two in the second half, like he was doing pretty good early on in the game.
And then all of a sudden they went away from it, which was surprising to me because it wasn't like they had all their weapons anyway, So it was. I'm with Tony.
It was just kind of weird for me.
I think they're a fence.
I put us much on the score on their offensive coordinator in their game plan as I do Gardner Minshew.
I just thought it was bad.
So this weekend got some interesting college football games coming up? Um, are you guys as excited as you normally would be for college football as you are? Maybe this year town.
I'll be honest with you.
I'm not a college football guy.
I'm a college basketball guy, but I've really follow college football at all.
I'll put it on and I'm gonna old school guy.
So if I see a Penn State or a Notre Dame game on, I'll put it on.
Obviously watch. Alabama, Oklahoma.
They're big, but I mean, besides that I just I don't know.
It's for Silver and I love college basketball.
I don't know why it's never parlayed into me being a huge college. Weird.
I'm not sure why I love college basketball, but I love college football.
And we all know CB loves him.
Some Colorado buffs over there.
It was funny because my new son in law is unorganized.
Fanny grew up there.
His grandpa has got season tickets to the Ducks.
Basketball football has had it forever.
And so we were talking about it, and he was like, Do you think the Pac 12 and the Big 10 are gonna be penalized if they end up playing at the end? If they have a the football player, I was like, Yeah, and he goes, I go, They should be.
You need to punish those guys for tapping out early.
Never reward anybody for quitting, right? They just quit.
And now they want to play because everyone else is playing.
You know what? Yeah, if you get 23 sec teams in there and Clemson, I'm not gonna complain this year, right? This year.
This is the only one because they find a way to leave the Pac 12 out, you know, has the Pac 12 been strong? No, not really.
But I mean, you gotta conference champion.
We just need to expand this where you get them all.
You know, that's all they are happened.
Pac 12 is playing now.
I guess they reversed their decision as well.
Uh, SEC is kicking off.
I'm looking at Bama and Missouri A and M and Vanderbilt things like that.
But I'm in a C C guy and growing up in New York, I used to be a Big East got Love me some Big East.
But then when everybody started moving Yeah, it upset me and my teams for me, right? And my team's ended up going to the A, C, C, Miami and Syracuse, then went to the A C.
Speaking of Miami a big game? A, I guess, Like a.
You know, this is always a game that's important to both schools Miami and Florida State or playing this weekend.
Miami's ranked 12th or two and oh, um, you know, this is for me.
I love college football.
Just haven't had that.
That hasn't given me the warm and fuzzies like it normally does, because I like watching so many other you know conferences.
I've just been watching Miami games and Syracuse games.
That's all I've been watching.
Has been playing, but for me, it's just not what it usually is.
I'm not getting the college football warm and fuzzies because normally, get on Mike like it's just been, you know, we don't have a plan.
No, but they didn't together create a plan to where we could get behind.
It was so disjointed and like Yeah, dude, it's annoying to me and I love my buffs, but you know, the Pac 12 man that, you know, that's disappointing.
I want to say something locally.
I know Air Force is gonna play.
I think Army and Navy, whether whatever the Mountain West, which is really cool, man, it's really cool.
So I'm excited about that, for sure.
I'm always excited about any well, and I did watch the Navy game last week on that come back that they had Good God.
Um, but you know, I always look forward Toa air Force playing Army and especially my navy.
So those I always get, you know, hyped up for especially here in Colorado Springs where we're at.
So all right, we're gonna take a quick break when we come back.
We're gonna go over some of our picks for this weekend, and I'm gonna get some locks from these guys, and I'm also going to get some upsets.
Will do that on the other side of the break.

All right, fellas, let's get into some of these NFL picks first.
Lock for this weekend, tone.
You know, there's somebody I'm gonna go. Titans.
I think they're talking to our lock.
I think Vikings are in free fall right now, and I really like how Italians are playing.
So even though they're going to Minnesota, I'm still gonna call him a lot.
Okay, CB, uh, people listening.
My hate me for this.
It's gotta be Tampa Bay against Denver.
Like Denver, Denver is getting 5.
Weird number, to be honest with you when you're playing.
I know, right Mile high is typically the horror house for Tom Brady, but he's gonna be licking his chops and man for me giving up five points and take in Tampa.
I mean, that's pretty juicy right there.
So for me, it's Tampa is gonna be your luck.
All right for me.
I'm taking the Colts over the Jets.
I mean, do I really need to say much more? I mean, I know that everybody is still not a big fan of Philip Rivers, and, you know, it's kind of been up and down, but we're talking about the New York Jets here that can't find they can't find the door knob and, you know, a closet that's full of nothing but doors.
It's just they can't find their way out at all.
Monsters think I'm Mike it Z Who's Sully? Yeah, I don't look, they are they Do you know that they are literally petitioning.
There's petitions out to get rid of Adam gays.
Crazy went Dude, look when the public wants you gone, not just because first of all, they can't chance because nobody's at the stadium right? So instead, the next best thing like my, Greenberg says, is a nice stern letter written to somebody.
Apparently, that's the case with Adam Gates.
They don't want a Fangio.
I started, actually.
Where did email Boom.
There you go. Wells constructed email.
The cult's look.
They're getting 11.
It's at Lucas Oil.
I know that doesn't mean much anymore, because there's nobody understands.
But the Jets air Just a dumpster Fire man.
There's just no way.
And if they do, so help me, I guess I don't know what big.
That's a big number. Mike, that's a big number.
You know, like to touch down and a field goal in an extra point and more right.
Like, Come on, that's every possessions.
Kinda or two. Touchdown.
I didn't e didn't say I would go anywhere near the bet.
I'm just e okay.
I didn't say I would go.
Any are indications here, Mr Looper.
I'm just giving you my luck.
I'm just saying they're gonna win.
I'm not taking a point.
Got Give me your upset pick of the week, C B.
Well, if I'm reading my fanduel app correctly.
Okay? Saints air giving up three points at home, right? For looking horrific versus one of my favorite teams in the NFL right now.
Okay, Is that an upset? Because I'm stuck between two Zeitz or at home? It's an upset because more people are picking Green Bay.
So it's an upset, and I So I like Tony's pick, too.
I really like Tennessee.
Uh, beating Minnesota.
Tennessee is giving up.
Are given a actually getting three, I think, actually.
So my upset for sure is Tennessee, But I want to do a bonus upset.
I think New Orleans is gonna end up beating Green Bay to, so I'm gonna put you on.
I'm looking at the line, and it says New Orleans is favored by three.
Are you sure I reading that right? No, you are.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. So I'm going.
Tennessee, Tennessee, Tennessee.
All right, so I'm writing it down.
All right, so now I think New England, I'm going to take Green Bay.
Mhm. Oh, my God.
Call me Waffle MK Waffle seuin.
All right, I'm gonna put you down for Green Bay.
That's a That's a crappy upset, dude, but we'll let you have it.
Okay, Tone, give me your upset pick of the week, so I don't know if this is an upset, but, I mean, maybe it is, but I'm gonna take New England over Oakland, and I know because New England's one on one Oakland's 20 no, I don't know if that's an upset or not, but, you know, here's my thing.
You know, I don't think I really like group. And I like Oakland.
I just don't think they're gonna go in the Fox.
Barrow will be able to beat the Patriots.
I just don't think it's gonna happen on I like Buffalo.
I like Buffalo to go through, you know, against the ramps.
I think Buffalo has been my pick a F C championship game from day one.
I continue to roll with, Um I really like what they're doing out there, So I guess I don't know if there are.
I don't know if the Oakland is an upset.
Win favor by five.
Are they really favored? 5.
So that's not interesting.
So Buffalo is a two point favorite over the picking favorites here, man, I'm picking favorites.
E need an upset time.
You know what? I'll all right, How about How about the Giants over the Niners? Wow.
How's that? Yeah, that's not going out on a limb.
That's a good designers playing. Nobody.
Sandra, nobody's left call.
I'm gonna call man.
San Francisco is the four point favorite in that game.
Yeah, well, I'll go to Giants.
Alright, So we'll give you the Giants Giants.
Okay? All right.
I was going to say now that is a nup set for sure.
Even though when you really look at it, it's kind of like, you know, San Francisco, it's so decimated, you know? It's like they really I mean, I would I would say Kwan and Shepherd too, though.
So my upset pick because your Philadelphia Eagles air favored by five tone.
I'm taking the Bengals toe beat the eagles, Uh, in Lincoln Financial baby e.
I mean, look, the dumpster fire man.
I'm telling you, it's falling apart.
Philly, you know, and I don't necessarily know if you guys were falling apart, but it's like there's no yeah, cohesive play whatsoever.
And I mean, man, they are killing.
Killing. Your boy went on TV.
They're just their master their massacre there.
Like, you know, even Greenberg was like, Look, if he can't win, what's next? You know? And that's got to be the biggest question tone.
If Carson Wentz can't win this game against Cincy, try toe, make some make some kind of semblance of this of this season.
What's gonna happen, man? What if he doesn't win on Sunday? Tom, What's gonna happen to Carson once? The only saving grace he has right now is the defense has been so awful, right? So they could fall back and say, Listen, we got you know, he was down 14 to 3 in Washington.
You're not giving them any leads.
You know, that's the one thing they could fall back on because I really think Cincinnati, I think Joe Barrows on the car, that defense up ideo.
I think it's gonna be a really good game from the offensive standpoint for Cincinnati, so I don't see them winning this game, man.
Everything I hear from Doug, everything I hear from Carson, he seems lost, and I know you guys remember.
But last year, when that report came out from Philly, voice about there being some major issues in the locker room, Carson not being a good teammate.
And you know that got squashed, riel fast.
There's some smoke to that fire, man.
I'm telling you, and we're starting to see it right now.
Now you gotta look at this cowboy Seahawks game.
You know, Dak played well last week.
You know, we got Russell Wilson.
The you've got to be the front runner for M v p pat myself on the shoulder there for that e.
I know, right? I But you know what Ford started.
So you're right.
I never want one yet.
So you're all right, And and I honestly think that he has a great shot If they continue to play.
I like Seattle to win this game.
There are actually five point favorites.
Another weird number, like Chris was alluding to earlier.
Who do you guys like in this game and why CB Who do you like? I'm taking Seattle all day.
I think Russell Wilson is gonna take care of the back end of that Dallas cowboy defense.
The strength of that defense is actually the front seven, and I just I just feel like they're not gonna be able to get to him like they want and he'll roll out and do this thing.
And I think I would take Seattle plus the points.
I mean, I would give up five.
I would, because I think I'm bullish on Seattle this year.
Big time, right tone.
I like Seattle, but what I will say is I'm a big for that emotional uplifting from that win against Atlanta.
And I think that was a turning point for Dallas.
Who, listen, you know, it's a veteran coach out there.
I dio I think they're gonna win this week.
Yeah, I wouldn't pick.
I'll pick them outright.
I'm not gonna go points, but I think they went by field goal this week.
You were just talking about Atlanta.
This is mind blowing for a lot of people, including this guy right here.
The Bears air to and Oh, and the Falcons are Oh, and two and Atlanta is a three point favorite and everybody and their brother is picking them.
Who are you picking? Who you taking tone? I'm going Atlanta all day.
I mean, I just thought, say, it's funny, I I said on on the show.
Matt Ryan will win your fancy matchup.
But he can't win your football game, right? I mean, it's the truth.
He's a fancy quarterback.
That team, their offense is, is unstoppable.
They just have no defense.
Eso If this gets into a shootout, I think that's why it's plus three.
There's no way the Bears have enough firepower to stay with the Falcons.
You know, I feel like Dan Quinn's, like trying to hold onto his job horrible coaching that we saw last Sunday that actually gave up a game.
Um, I gotta go Atlanta to I don't think there's any way that the Falcons want to go out like that.
I'm not a believer in the Falcons at all.
I think the Bear's gonna have a better record at the end of season.
I just think this is a week where Atlanta kind of puts it together a little bit, and Matty Ice tries to be like Matty Ice Nina.
They're trying to have them on uh, chick fil A on Sunday again, you know, standing up there, I I actually I was thinking about taking the Bears, and I'm just like, you know, the more you just think about it is.
This fool's gold is, you know, Are they really a two and o team? You look at who they played and how they want.
Look, I think the ****ing is win this game, and I honestly think that they're gonna be able to cover.
And I think the X factor is gonna be Calvin Ridley.
This guy has already got four touchdowns.
He's always in the right place at the right time.
He's got 239 yards already and he's Onley caught the ball 16 times.
He is completely the X factor with this game.
I think he's gonna have another bang up game, uh, in real life.
And if you have been fantasy, make sure you play him because he's gonna be there x factor.
And I definitely think that the **** is gonna win this game for sure.
Three points and then some.
To be honest with you, Um, let's talk about this Bill's Rams game.
We're talking about a two point favorite for Buffalo Buffalo and Josh Allen.
Let's be honest, are playing out of their minds when you Yes, you may pat yourself on the back from that one tone you're talking about having two guys in your wide receiving corps and in fantasy, Let's just for a second. Let's go there.
I have both of them on my team.
I've actually had them not in at the same time except for last week and it and it paid off.
But you don't see that very often where both these and Fantasy, both these wide receivers are getting enough throws, enough touchdowns, enough yards, toe actually, make a difference.
This Buffalo Bills team is very strong on that offensive side of the ball, and their defense is no slouch, either.
That's that's the biggest caveat with this.
I like the Bills.
I think that it's gonna be This is gonna be a game of the week for me.
I think there's gonna be really good.
It's gonna be a shootout, you know? Golf.
Alan, I like this game.
I'm looking forward to this game, but give me the Bills and I think that covered the two CB.
You know, the Rams were my number two, and Josh Allen is going to get to me, Aaron Donald up close and personal this week, and I think that will keep him in the pocket a little bit more than normal.
E think that's the perfect game for Sean McVeigh to pull out some of its tricks.
So I'm gonna go.
I'm going to take the Rams all day on this one.
I think Buffalo is a really good team.
I just think the Rams, they're strong on defense and I think they're gonna be able Thio confuse Allen a little bit this week.
So it'll be a good game.
Actually, that's one of the ones I wanna wanna watch.
But I do really think that Alan needs Thio learn how to slide a bit a little bit sooner.
And I think this is the week that he might, uh, exacerbate that learning process.
Stefon Diggs and Brown, For me through this week might not be the week to maybe have them both in, but I'm gonna give it a world tone.
Who do you got? A.
Chris has got great points because, you know, the biggest knock on Josh Allen is its accuracy.
And, you know, if you keep him in the pocket, he's a completely different quarterback.
So you know that's gonna be the game plan now, will they be able to, you know, bank on that? Who knows? I still like Buffalo.
Zach Moss will not play this week, so it'll be having Singletary show.
But, you know, I I understand Jalen Ramsey will be locked up with Stefon Diggs, but I still think John Brown and Cole Beasley are good enough to get them through.
So I think it's a great chess match between McDermott and McVeigh.
I wrote MacDonald being a defensive guy, McVeigh being the offensive guy.
I can't wait to see this game, but I'll take him.
I'll take Buffalo by three.
Let's talk about Texan Steelers in Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh's of four point favorite.
Another weird number.
Vegas is killing me with these numbers.
Four freaking points.
Look, Texans Air Owen to We've all sat here and said to Sean Watson, not being there is obviously I mean, excuse me, D hop.
Not being there is.
Obviously it's problematic.
It is problematic for DeShaun Watson.
I you know, I'm taking the Steelers, but I still think that there's gotta be some more identity in that offensive core.
It seems like there's no identity there.
I don't know why do Sean is an amazing athlete.
I'd like to see him do better.
Just not this Sunday tone.
Who do you got? Yeah, it's gotta be Pittsburgh.
And listen, O Brien gets fired.
In my opinion, he should have been fired when he traded the hop.
And the players gonna lose confidence in him.
What's that, Chris that day? Yeah, exactly.
Ridiculous, right? Its's ridiculous.
So I think, you know, listen, Watson got paid, so at the end of the day, D Shawn knows who he is.
He doesn't have to prove anything to anybody.
So, you know, I think a lot of these players going to kind of give up a little bit and be frustrated.
And I think there's no way they win this game in Pittsburgh.
See me? You know, I'm taking Pittsburgh for one reason and one actually to know Hop.
We found out he's worth three or four games for the Texans.
That's not happening this year.
And that front seven for Pittsburgh.
There is no way that that offensive line for the Texans is gonna be able to figure that out.
I saw that up close and personal, and the only reason that Driscoll stayed alive is because he's a pretty **** good athlete and I think does Shawn Watson is, too.
But he won't have anyone to throw to.
So Pittsburgh like giving up What? What is it for? It's not enough, man.
That's not enough.
You need to get into double digits for me to think about taking Houston and this dude, people are talking.
My first of all, I'm not gonna shut out Houston.
Pittsburgh will always screw up somewhere along the way to give up some points.
Here's my next question for you guys.
Since we're talking about the Houston Texans, there is a lot of rumor going around that should the Texans explore signing Antonio Brown, the word is sealers mopped.
After the game, they go call Antonio Brown and bring him in as their number one wide receiver tone, You're laughing your butt off.
Why are you laughing? Is it that preposterous? Well, you know what? No, no disrespect, Antonio, but it's more laughing at Bill O'Brien.
You traded away your number one wide receiver, and now we're talking about a guy who's literally mocking a tailor as he's ****ing in the e mean Come on, I mean, like you had a guy.
You had a guy you got rid of all.
You're gonna bring this guy ridiculous.
You get a better idea, Mike.
Let's get Antonio Brown and Dez Bryant.
Let's bring them all back.
They need somebody.
Come on. They need somebody.
And it's not fair to do Shawn Watson, what Bill o Brien did to him.
This is Total Bs.
And if I'm do Sean, I'm, like, really upset.
So yeah, man, sign them both to a one year deal.
See what happens if they become a pain in the butt.
Just send them packing.
Who cares? T 02? He's running a 44 man.
Uh, hey, t o is really not a bad idea.
Have you seen? Yeah, dude, I mean, like, Mike Tyson does hitting the bags.
Mantzios of Manti.
Oh, just don't play, man.
Just like that split open, Dude.
Um, uh, that's gonna be an ugly fight.
Um, look, I like the Antonio Brown idea for them.
It's not for me.
It's a typical Bill O'Brien.
Are you kidding me? Move it.
Is it gonna happen? I'm gonna tell you, I'm gonna go out on a limb It I think it's gonna happen.
I think, after they get mocked by Pittsburgh, I think they're gonna go and try to make some phone calls and try to get Antonio Brown in that offense.
And I'm gonna tell you for me.
I wouldn't want him anywhere near my locker room.
And I loved Antonio Brown when he was in Pittsburgh on the field.
But you have to go back and listen to things that were said by Troy Polamalu, Joey Porter, Ben Roethlisberger, all the Ryan Clark.
All these guys saying, Look, the guy was a handful, man.
Nobody worked harder than Antonio Brown.
Don't get me wrong, and that's what they all said.
It's one thing that they all had in common about the positive that they said about him.
But at the end of the day, he was a nightmare, sometimes in the locker room with his fits with his ongoing.
Now, if this guy has gone to a medical physician and gotten checked out and got some meds and maybe he's, you know, maybe he's balanced now, instead of being so unbalanced, we can talk, but the guy's not coming near my franchise unless I know that he's, you know, went and seek some professional mental help because there's something mentally wrong with that cat man.
I don't know if it's from the hits he's been taken or what the deal is, but the dude is mentally unbalanced, and I don't want that in my locker room.
Especially if I have a lot of young talent that I'm trying to get in the right direction.
I don't need him coming in and, you know, upsetting the apple cart by any stretch of the imagination, do you? Do you have a bunch of young talent? Because that wide receiver room looks empty to me.
It does be the only guy in there.
I'm not just talking. I'm not talking about Houston.
I'm just I'm just talking about in general. Yeah.
Antonio Brown Thio.
Ready, Berry go. Texans.
That would be an absolute freaking nightmare.
I ochocinco in there to throw him.
Chad trying to get in the xfl? Yeah, Roman a I'm like, Are you absolutely Sean looks like he could play tight end.
Let's bring him Thio.
I don't know, Sean, look like you've been eating too much pie.
That's why he's played tight end now, man.
Your line, Keyshawn Neck getting a little thick.
All right? And finally, let's do this one Panthers Chargers.
Who do you guys like? Tone? Oh, that's a That's a tough one.
You know, I'm gonna go with the kid.
I'm gonna go with the kid.
I'm gonna go with the Chargers.
Like no Christian McCaffrey for Carolina.
You know, Mike Davis is going to get some volume.
But isn't the guy Herbert look pretty good last week? So I'm gonna go with the Chargers.
Do we Herberts going this week? Do we know what is going? Yeah, I'm taking the Chargers all day long.
I I think the charges have turned to leave from having no fans toe having fans just because of what Justin was able to do last week.
People started paying attention.
I think they like the attention.
You got echl er healthy.
You know, I think that's that's basically what It's gonna come down.
Thio, eh? Cler that run game for CIA for ah, San Diego slash L a Chargers, But I'm taking charges all day long.
No, Christian McCaffrey.
Justin Herbert starts the charges.
Air 6.5 point favorite.
Look, I I have been waiting.
I waited to see this kid, and he did not disappoint If and he's going to start, give me the Chargers.
Teddy Bridgewater is gonna He's gonna struggle.
He's going to struggle to find some kind of similar in that offense.
Without Christian McCaffrey.
Christian McCaffrey is the glue that holds that offensive.
You know that entire offense together For how many years now? Doesn't matter who's been in there.
Now, Teddy, it doesn't matter.
The X factor in that offense is always gonna be Christian McCaffrey.
Without it, there's no way Carolina wins this game.
So All right, fellas, thanks so much for hanging out with us making us a part of this day.
We appreciate it. CB.
Anything you want to say? Nice.
But before we get out of here, no, man have an amazing weekend, fellas and all the listeners And just go be awesome.
