e o What's up, everybody? Welcome into the sports.
Got a mic show K C B R 98 5 a.
10 40 Right here in Colorado Springs 100 mics FM dot com As well as being on sportscasting dot com, I'm your host sports guy.
Mike, Thanks so much for hanging out with us, making us a part of your day.
We appreciate it as always.
Got a lot to get to today.
What a game last night, man.
E mean, honestly, I I'm not gonna lie.
I thought it was kind of Okay, So we're gonna get to it in a minute because I want to talk about it so bad it wasn't I guess what everybody wanted it to be or what everybody thought it was gonna be.
Because, honestly, Mark Jackson did not look good, But nevertheless, we're going to get to this first because, you know, a lot of shows don't talk a lot of hockey, and we're one of them.
Uh, look, I'm a ranger fan.
I watched the ranger games, and that's usually my limit.
I'm not even gonna pretend like I know.
However, when it does come down to this time I usually do keep my eye on it.
And last night actually did watch part of this game.
And the Tampa Bay Lightning are the champions of bubble hockey.
Who would've thought that we'd ever be using the word champion and bubble in the same sentence? But we're going Thio and the Tampa Bay Lightning are the Stanley Cup champions for 2020.
Brayden Point scored his first playoff best 14th goal in the Lightning, beat the Dallas Stars two to nothing on Monday toe win the Stanley Cup and finished the most unusual NHL postseason in history stage nearly entirely in quarantine because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Nonetheless, they are your Stanley Cup champions and just is what it is now.
I'll be honest with you.
I didn't watch a lot of playoff hockey, and, you know, just because my Rangers weren't in it and I can't stand the Islanders and they were in it.
But this was an interesting Stanley Cup. Siri's.
It was 3 to 2 coming into this game last night, and Tampa Bay just finished him off toe win the Siri's 42.
So congratulations to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Like I said, I'm not gonna sit here and pretend like what's going on.
What I do know is going on in the n b A. Though.
However, Doc Rivers out as the L A Clippers coach on, apparently, after a disappointing season, that's, you know, that's really all it took is kind of what I'm guessing.
But, um, do I feel bad for Doc? Uh, kinda e think he kind of got the shaft.
I think they had a pretty good year on, uh, you know, despite getting knocked out by the Denver Nuggets, you know, they had a pretty good season.
Can't blame them for that.
By the way, last night, over, uh, Marty Maher.
So told you we'd get you squared away, buddy.
Um, so you have Doc Rivers, uh, stepped down as the coach of the L A.
Clippers in what Chairman Steve Palmer called a mutual decision.
Not I don't know if that is a all the way.
Uh, but that's what bomber says The team fell short of its championship expectations is after flying All Star.
Why Leonard, of course.
Paul, George Wythe, Clippers.
And I was pretty impressed bythe keep cool.
E 49 20 Regular season.
Fourth best record in franchise history.
E try fourth best record in franchise history but squandered a 3123 C in the Western Conference center.
Like you, all elegant nuggets on surrendering leads.
16 1912 points in franchise Western Western Conference finals.
Drought reached 50 years.
Rivers has been a coach for coaching five of the Clippers, sixth best of regular way.
This'd e understand.
He's saying it's mutual, but at the end of the day, look, man, you're talking about a guy that you know managed to get them to the fourth best record in franchise history.
You also managed to figure out a way.
Thio coach up somebody like Paul George and Quiet Leonard.
And this is E mean, I'm not gonna lie.
I think this is a little, uh, it's weird.
I didn't I really didn't see it coming.
E thought that they would maybe keep quiet for another year and don't know what his contract looks like.
I don't know if he did a Toronto deal and only did a single year, but yeah, he's out.
Some of the people that are being talked about of course, Tyronn Lue, because apparently that's what the team wants.
At least that's what the rumor is.
Um, look, Tyronn Lue did a hell of a job out in Cleveland.
I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being the coach Onley because, um uh, according to some sources, that's what That's what these guys want.
That's what the Clippers wants, what the players wear.
So we'll see what happens.
We'll keep you guys posted.
I don't know how. Bomber.
Bombers, uh, relationship with Tyronn Lue is estranged or anything.
I know I've heard some rumors about it, but we'll keep you guys posted.
Let you know what it's gonna happen over there, But yeah, Doc Rivers out the L A Clippers coach Los Angeles Lakers.
Now we have our final set. Lakers heat.
Um, I'm really looking forward to rooting for the heat and Jimmy buckets.
I'd love to see this dude finally get his ring on.
Uh, kind of let some of these some of the air out of out of that LeBron James.
Uh, Head e guess Anyway, sports books have installed the l A Lakers as considerable favorites to beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals Now the early betting action, though, has been on the underdogs, and the odds are on the move.
So if you're gonna do it, you better do it.
The Lakers are minus 400 favorites at William Hill US Sports Book, with the Heat listed as a plus 3 20 underdog.
Early support from Miami has caused the aunts to move at some sports books.
So if you want to root for the if you wanna bet on the heat, I would go ahead and do it now before that margin before that number gets smaller.
You wanna jump on that, Aziz quickly as possible because, honestly, look, it's not a bad bet.
It really isn't.
Miami has has the caliber team to beat the sauce Angeles Laker team.
They have strong players.
I'm going to tell you, these guys have, besides talent, have willed their way through.
You know, these, uh, these playoffs.
They've just they wanted it more than every team that they've played.
Boston on paper is a better team.
They are a better team.
There is more, uh, talents, So to speak on paper for that Boston Celtics team in Miami didn't care.
Sometimes the will is stronger than the want just is.
As of Monday morning, 17 of the 1st 18 bets on the NBA Finals were on the heat telling you it This could be a big, big upset.
Of course, the momentum, temperature, all that stuff that we like to put into our little bowl of.
What's gonna happen is determined off of that first game.
It's just is it always is.
The first game is always that important, right? So I think that's gonna be what we you know, What is the litmus? How it begins, how it starts and ultimately, how everybody is gonna react? Um e on, uh, on Wednesday or Excuse me, I should say how everybody is gonna react on Thursday after Wednesday's game, because that is one game one, uh, will go down the Lakers right now, our only a five point favorite in that game.
Yeah, I'm gonna tell you right now, both well rested.
Three heat, obviously a little more rested sometimes.
That's detriment to a team toe.
Players just because they've been kind of, I don't know, I guess a little comfortable.
So we'll have to wait and, uh, and see on Wednesday.
But I like I like the heat chances in this man.
I mean, I'm not going to sit here and give you my pick right this minute.
However, you can probably kind of see, uh, where I'm headed, but anyway, s Oh, yeah.
That game will take place on Wednesday.
Five point favorite Lakers.
I'll tell you what wouldn't be a bad idea.
Toe lay a little bread on their just saying so, uh, you never know.
Okay, so last night Chiefs Ravens, I'm gonna tell you right now, I went out on a limb and I said that from what I saw in the first two games with Baltimore, right, E, I did my You know, Chris and I did our top five power rankings just because, Okay, you could do 10 if you want Thio, But five or more important, because they're gonna jockey week after week, right? Depending on just depending on how everybody plays.
Right? So I was that guy that went out on a limb and said, Look at that time last week after all the games from week to and the smoke had cleared that Baltimore was the better team.
They played the Browns.
They smoke from 38 to 6.
They played the Texans a little bit closer.
It was they're supposed to be.
This big matchup between the Sean and Lamar and way were supposed to be sitting here clamoring and, you know, being all excited about it.
And it really wasn't what we expected, at least not what I expected.
But you take out one of the best receivers and D hop, and now all of a sudden, this matchup isn't isn't quite as exciting as we thought it would be.
And I went out on a limb and I said that the Baltimore Ravens, after week to, was the number one team in the NFL after last night.
Obviously, I have, um, I have a different take now, and it wasn't about Lamar.
It was about collectively, how they played on offense, how well that defense played.
I don't know what happened, but that wasn't the same team that I saw beat the Houston Texans.
That's not the same team that I saw slobber knocked the freaking Cleveland Browns and weak one.
It's just not the same team, but we will talk more about it on the other side of the break.
We're gonna take a quick one.
CB is going to join us here in the second.
All that coming up.

What's up, everybody? Welcome back to the sports guy, Mike Show right here on a case to be our 98 5 a.m.
10 40 in Colorado Springs.
100 Mix up m dot com as well, SportsCastr dot com Sports guy Mike Chris Brain hanging out with you.
What's up, buddy? It's always coffee day at my house.
E I am not a coffee guy.
Dude, what happened? E just okay, So I've told it was always a story, Mike.
And this one is actually, uh, this one goes deep just so you know, dig in here.
Yeah, this one's deep.
So, you know, I'm a Catholic school kid, right? Since fifth grade.
So going through Catholic school for those of you that don't be with you, by the way.
Yeah, and and also with you.
So eso you know, we had and this is back in the eighties, so we had nuns and we also had what we call late teachers, which means they weren't nuns.
That's all that means off the street.
Some of them were very highly regarded in the church and blah, blah, whatever.
So anyway, I get you.
I had a couple teachers that were so bad with the coffee and the cigarettes.
And then they would come up on you.
And now my mother smoked That used to drive me nuts.
I always used to tell her cattle where she would quit smoking above.
But I just So I have my mother smoking.
I hate the smell of smoke.
And then these teachers would just be on you and all.
You could smell coffee.
So coffee is a no, no for me.
I can't stand the smell.
I don't like when people have been drinking it and trying to breathe in my face.
Dude. Man, I'm with you on the smoking.
Me and my dad talked about that when I was helping them a couple of weeks ago.
Remember when you used to lock us up his kids in the car for 12 hours and drive to Vegas, smoked two packs? I go.
I always wondered when I was a kid.
Why? I had a headache.
When? When we got to Vegas? Because we had tons of family that lived there.
And he goes, He just smiled at me.
He's like, Yeah, cannot stand cigarette smoke either.
That Zatz from a child.
My mom was a military guy.
You might know this.
He called it Ranger coffee.
So every morning he would take his Folgers, throw it in there, and then he would throw like eggshells.
And, like all that's just what the hell is in salt? Hey, would make Ranger coffee and he goes, Hey, son, try this.
It'll grow hair on your chest.
You know, my God.
And you know what? I loved it because I just looked up to my grandpa.
I was like, I'll drink whatever you drink, Pops.
It's a tough It's a tough thing for me.
My wife loves coffee, and they brought it here in the house, and my my sons like to drink it, and it's just it drives me insane.
My parents would get hurt off when I drink it.
When I was a kid there, like dad, will you keep giving them coffee? I can't do a little hyper.
I was just see, I was, too.
Yeah, I had some energy, buddy.
Now they would have put me on some sort of drugs, I think.
Oh, yeah, we'd be.
We'd both be on, like, Ritalin or Yeah, something.
Why? I don't like that.
There's kids on that stuff now, but anyway, so this just came across the wire.
The Tennessee Titans have closed their facilities until Saturday after three players and five non players tested positive for Kobe.
19 according to a league, uh, source that told ESPN's Dianna Russini just a few minutes ago.
Now the Titans, citing an abundance of caution, issued a statement this morning saying they've halted in person work for today.
Minnesota Vikings, who played the Titans on Sunday? Actually, absolutely.
And unequivocably did the same thing out of the abundance of caution.
The organization has decided to work remotely today as we follow NFL protocols related to the Coba 19 virus eyes what the statement said.
It also quoted that several tests have come back positive and are working through the process of confirming them today.
Now, don't forget they have.
Everybody's got those trackers too, so that you can figure out who you got, who you were in contact with and all that other stuff.
It was just a matter of my phone, by the way.
Do you? Yeah, they put it on there without asking May I knew that this would happen, but I will say that I am pleasantly surprised that it took to a week three before something of any kind of caliber were toe happen minor compared to what the Marlins did correct.
Well, at least that's what we know.
We don't know the, um it says that there were three players and five non players, so that's eight.
Just from Tennessee.
I don't have the number from Minnesota still way less than the Miami Marlins.
I'll agree with you there.
Um, but it's still a co bid quote outbreak, so to speak.
Um, are you concerned that this is gonna start to snowball? Or do you think that this could be nice and isolated and they'll get it squared away? Question number one.
Does Derrick Henry have it? Uh, doesn't It's not not releasing any name could be messing with.
That's the big question.
Number one. Number two.
No, in fact, kudos to the Titans.
They followed protocols.
They're following it.
See if they could mitigate any of the damage that's done.
Same with the Vikings.
I mean, you know, I'm not worried about it.
I think that everything's in place. We're good.
You know what, dude, can the team get more devastated than the Miami Marlins? Were devastated.
Like, let's be honest, No, they got crushed, They got crushed and look where they're at now.
They play pretty **** good ball, and they got through it.
Oh, I feel good about it.
No, I'm not worried about it all.
I just I think this is really cool toe watch.
This is actually good for the NFL.
If they get through this week and realize that all the systems they have in place are working, that's what that's what We're what we're gonna find out this week.
And I think, and for me, I agree with you.
I'm at the point where if we're after week three, there's, you know, under 20 people between both sides have this cove in 19 and it can be isolated tract people can be put into.
You know, this co vid I are, you know, protocol list.
Honestly, I actually kind of feel good about it that it's taken one this long and it's not that many people.
That's a good thing.
And I think if it happened to a team like the Broncos, that's already decimated by injuries and they've pulled over the off their practice squad Just a story just because they're already dealing with, right, the players.
I mean, what would they roll out there, bro? Like you and I would probably get a call, right? I don't know, man.
You know, it's crazy, and I can hold the line on the corner.
No, you know what? I can sit there and hold Gatorade with the best of them, right? Hey, you squirt this in your mouth.
I don't know how they don't miss all the time.
Like I would like you hit a dude in the I r.
Up is down like Oh, my bad.
That was That was lemon lime to I'm sorry.
I bet that right eso we will keep.
We'll keep a nigh on that But before the break, I was talking about last night's game.
You know, maybe the underplay of Lamar Jackson, because you have to call it that.
What else would you call it? 15 to 28 97 yards, one touchdown? Struggled throughout that entire game to find some sort of rhythm.
Wasn't throwing the ball well in the first half at all.
Was very, very, uh, flat running the ball more than I've ever.
I mean, it was like every other play was either him running or somebody running.
It was just It was a lot.
And maybe it was a little telling.
I know that he went on the record and said, Oh, you know, the Kansas City Chiefs are my kryptonite.
Look, bro, I don't want to hear it, because in the last two games, I don't know if you blame him or you blame Harbaugh because Harbaugh was coming out of his skin all night long, yelling at the referees over bad calls.
According to him, those were not bad call.
Sorry, but he he wasn't himself either.
So do we attribute this loss to nerves to just they had a bad game and everybody has it.
Why do you think the Ravens were so out of sync and not the team we saw in weeks? One and weak, too.
Well, let me ask you this.
What side of the ball plays when Patrick Mahomes is out on the field? Yeah.
What do you mean? That's right.
Yeah, Well, when you get behind and you have a quarterback like Lamar Jackson, how are you going to stick to your game plan? There's absolutely zero way of doing it.
And I have to tell you I mean, I think Lamar Jackson's a really, really good quarterback.
I knew this was gonna happen this year.
There's a book on him now.
Killed everybody last year.
Now they kind of scheme for him.
And now we're going to see what Harbaugh and the guys could do a Sfar assed helping him through this because I don't blame this all on him.
In fact, I think it was a bit unfair last night, and although I do like greasy and and the way they called the game, I think it's really good.
I think there were a bit harsh on him, but yeah, man, people figured it out I mean, that happens toe every single quarterback, I mean, look like Cam Newton.
They figured him out.
He gets a year off, and they're like, Oh, **** camp scam again.
We gotta go dig back into that four year old footage of Cam Newton running around again.
So I mean, no, I thought I think that the defense, uh, the secondary didn't play good for the Ravens Early on, I think the defense of line didn't get enough push early on.
And that's what you have to do to Patrick Mahomes.
You can't let him out of the pocket.
And so I think I'm putting it on the defense number one.
Although they did play better in the second half, they were able to regroup, and they played a lot better in the second half.
But if you're gonna be what you have to do with Lamar Jackson, in fact, I think they should have just stuck to the game plan even when they were down.
Uh, because that's how he's gonna break a big boy.
Sure, I mean, And when you have the ball and you play ball control like that, your number one asset is to keep the ball away from Patrick Mahomes when you're playing Patrick Mahomes? Absolutely.
Like, if you if you, uh, speed up the game and don't let him have the ball and just milk clock, I mean, that's better.
So I think all around for the Ravens, I think it was, Ah, mistake's, um And I had a In fact, I think I said it yesterday.
At least I said it in my house.
I had a feeling the Chiefs We're gonna have a field day on them because they owned the Chiefs.
They owned the Ravens.
There's just teams like that.
So, yeah, you know what? Lamar Jackson's gonna come back.
He's gonna be fine.
They're gonna figure it out.
But they can't go with old stuff anymore.
They're gonna mix in some stuff.
And another thing, I hated Mike last thing.
I hate the fact that they're making them stay in the pocket.
He looks like he hates it.
Like when he know Lamar hates it.
He doesn't look comfortable stepping up into the pocket.
He doesn't want to do that.
And it's just hard for me to watch.
I mean, he could go through his progressions and stuff, but is that his gift? Come on, now.
What are we doing now? Square pay ground hold.
Let him be Lamar Jackson.
And and And everything you said I really liked especially the thing about First of all, you gotta let the guy do what he does, right? But the thing that you said the most is that having tape on him.
This is what I said before the season started.
I said, Do not look for Baltimore to be a team that loses two games this year.
Three games is it ain't gonna happen.
They're gonna lose more games this year.
There's gonna be a back slide for the simple reason that people are teams and D. C s.
They're gonna be able to just plan better for Lamar.
And look there it was the Browns and the Texans.
I'm sorry to Dumpster Fires.
The Browns were playing okay, right? But they got smoked by Baltimore.
I mean, smoked 38 to 6.
That's a smoke show.
And then they went in and the Texans hung with them at first, but then they pulled away.
The Chiefs are just a better team and game plan better than the other two teams did.
Don't tell me that down the line that teams like Pittsburgh and the Cults and the Patriots and the Titans aren't you know what I mean aren't gonna be more ready than the Browns.
And the Texans were thes other teams.
They're gonna be more ready and they're gonna game plan better Thistle is.
Look, I'm This is not a slight on the Marr.
He's a very gifted athlete.
Yes, and he's a very good quarterback.
But him being in that pocket right now is probably not the best thing for him.
There's gotta be more rollouts.
There's gotta be more options.
He can't stay in that pocket, too.
And I'm not saying that he can't throw because he can, But I think his gifts right now our rollout passes him, you know, play action, running the ball.
Those seem to be things that one make him more comfortable.
But keep in mind, mawr, DCs, they're gonna plan for that. Okay.
You want to start running again? Good.
We're gonna bring guys off the end to contain you.
You ain't gonna run.
Know where you're gonna be forced up the middle then you're not gonna go anywhere.
Well, and I think to If we watch what Cleveland's done with Baker, they've been able to get him out on the edge.
So basically, he's reading, like, just one half of the field, and he's really comfortable with that.
And I think Lamar Jackson do the same thing.
And you know what? Be careful.
If you're gonna, like, try to bring those edge rushers, because they'll they'll just once he gets outside of that, there's nothing you can do that.
Second dear dude.
Yeah, but I watched the Ravens last night and, um, I think I think the front seven for the Steelers is much better than the front seven for the Ravens.
I mean, that's that's gonna be nasty.
That's why I picked them in that division.
So I mean, you got guys like Derek Wolfe who will be out in, like, a week or two for six or seven weeks and things like that.
So I mean, you know what? That Ravens air fine.
And you know what? Losing four or five games in an NFL season.
Is that a travesty? Let's go on 12 and 4 11 and five.
What's wrong with that? You stay so high.
You're not saying the Ravens are gonna be like the Broncos.
I got to say this.
My buddy John Wedge just put this out there.
So if you were listening to the broadcast last night, there were a few times where the guys kept calling him Pat Mahomes and his mom tweeted and said, It's Patrick.
So my buddy Johnson said, Just remember, it's Patrick Mahomes, not Pat Mahomes.
So don't get too comfortable, Mike, right? That's not your boy I know.
But a little respect on that on his name, I know.
But for the most part, this was a very methodical game drawn out by Andy Reid by Patrick Mahomes.
Offensively, the defense played well.
I wish I could have gotten at least, uh, touchdown out of Travis Kelsey and I wouldn't have lost my freaking my fantasy.
He would come for that game to 87 yards.
Yeah, it's like Good stop.
But think about this.
If you're playing on the Kansas City Chiefs, how pumped are you to go to work every day? You just You're coming off a Super Bowl.
You Maybe a little tired, but I prefer not to talk about that right now.
It's a sore issue.
Yeah, I know, I know.
Think the chief.
I know you don't like the O.
Probably about as much as I can't stand the Ravens, bro.
And you know what? Patrick Mahomes, How hard this is for me to talk about Lamar Jackson like he's.
But the thing about it is, I hope the chief fans don't become like those Seahawk fans where you never saw Seahawks jersey.
And next thing you know, everywhere you go everywhere, people's got Russell, Russell will start soothe Chief fans, They're so much like the Nebraska fans.
It's so hard to hate them because they're so nice. Nice.
I know. And they have a noise.
You I mean, come on, now.
I mean, you get in there and you're like, I hate you.
I'm wearing on my bronco stuff, You know? I hate you guys, and they're like, You want some ribs and you're like, Okay? Yes, please.
Can I have some extra bread to or some corn bread? Some pulled pork over there? Exactly.
I need I need some jalapeno sausages.
Next, Thio, give me a hot leg, baby.
You know I'm saying, Speaking of Kansas City and, uh, Patrick Mahomes, he actually became the fastest player to collect 10,000 yards passing in Monday night's game against the Ravens and did it the hard way.
Mahomes did much of his best work by beating the Blitz during that game.
It was phenomenal to watch.
And I am even happier that he passed up Kurt Warner and getting that record.
I never I never told you about the Kurt Warner Twitter for you to get him on the show.
I have his name in my phone.
Hey, me and him went round around about the way he spoke about kids playing football and his kids.
Yeah, he said it on on the NFL network and all that, and it infuriated me because I'm like, you have what you have because of the game of football because of the NFL, and you're gonna sit up there on a dais.
Look, if he worked for me and I own the NFL Network and he was trashing my product, he'd be fired.
I would if I will tell you this, though. Sorry.
That's a common sentiment around around NFL players.
In fact, I have a buddy that was on the practice squad as a quarterback for an NFL team, and his kid really didn't want to play, and he didn't push it.
So I mean, I see that as a common thing.

E Welcome back to the sports guy Mike Show right here on K c p R.
98 5 AM 10 40 100 mics FM dot com A swell.
A SportsCastr dot com Sports guy Mike Chris Brain Hanging out with you Um, last night's game was pretty interesting.
I will say this stuff.
What's funny is that now Mahomes is doing things that guys like Brady and Rodgers do.
They're they're making guys that nobody knew who they were household names already, and it's just crazy, even last night.
So is he the best quarterback in the league? The biggest thing that makes me chuckle about this conversation is always well is Lamar at Patrick Mahomes this level yet? Well, first of all, you're talking about two totally different guys on.
It's not like Patrick Mahomes is some kind of speed demon or something, either because the dude is not that fast.
He's quick enough.
He's fast enough. He's quick.
It's fast, two totally different types of quarterbacks.
So it goes back to like when he said Mike, and why we A lot of people don't get it.
Those fast twitch muscles, man, when those guys break it down, guys like Jerry, Judy and stuff.
That's why a guy like that that's not fast, can't get away from you.
You know what I mean? It's that question.
Oh, yeah, no quickness.
Is Justus important? His top end speed? Absolutely, absolutely.
All right, so let's take this question from Ronnie, he says.
What do you think the Broncos coaches are thinking when they look in the Q B room today? Who to start? Because the word is that there possibly gonna take Ripken's kid and Driscoll and maybe work them both? End to me if you ask me.
Just go with Jeff Driskel.
No, that's not what happened? I got some insider information on that, right? It's gonna be ripping.
They just didn't announce it.
Yesterday s Oh, that's what I've been told.
They didn't want to announce it yesterday because they don't wanna let the Jets know who's playing.
And to be honest with you, is there any tape on Rip and you have to go back to Boise And No, but here's what happened.
Yeah, they had the eso.
Here's what happened.
I don't know because I I was wow guys.
And then I've watched the Bronco game again because, like when I was watching it the first time, dude, I like vomited.
I had to go get a trash can like it was just not a good day.
Um, and I rewatched it.
And if you look and I'm not saying ripping is better than Driscoll, I'm not saying ripping is a good quarterback or anything like that.
What I am saying is ripping understood the coverages and he understood the protections.
So if you watch, rip and put them in the right protections every single time and so that that offensive line didn't look a bad when ripping was in and he did.
Yes, he did throw the pick and everything else, but it looked.
It looked like a more cohesive thing.
Jeff Driskel just looked like he did every time he started.
That's the reason he's got one win in the NFL, and I don't think Blake Bortles is ready.
So what I've been told is it's going to be ripping.
They didn't want to say anything yesterday because they didn't like a competitive advantage a little bit.
I'm kind, Honestly, I'm kind of excited.
Let me tell you why, Mike.
I have no delusions of grandeur.
That thin is gonna be a great quarterback.
But what I'm saying is Rip in could be Gary Kubiak to whoever the starter for the Denver Broncos is, whether it's Drew lock when he comes back, or they just suck so bad that they get Trevor Lawrence in here.
Ripping can be that guy.
That could be your backup like faux uh, there, and I'm cool with that so you can do it.
And you know what? It's not the worst thing in the world if you go dude.
The Broncos always do horribly when they go to the East Coast It's like its a freaking nightmare.
Now it's on a short week.
Everybody on your team is hurt.
Going on four, buddy.
It's probably gonna happen.
Dude, this is I think the Broncos, like today, have a 40% chance of winning that game.
And the Jets suck their Broncos and Jets air fighting for who is the worst.
And I think you throw the Giants in there.
Well, that's what I was going to say.
You want to talk about so Oh, and three teams.
You ready? Got the Jets.
Do you guys face? You have the Bengals who are 02 in one.
Don't you say it's still a lost? Even though they would be ahead of a team that was Oh, and three, Um, you got to Denver Broncos, New York Giants.
Our own three Minnesota Vikings are also Owen three along with the Atlanta Falcons.
So if I looked at all these teams that are owned three right now and which one, I would say probably vies for the number one pick and the worst record.
Honestly, it would have to be a toss up between both New York teams Jets and the Giants.
I don't even put you guys in that category.
I don't know if you look at the depth of the Denver Broncos, and that's where the big mistakes have been made for the Denver Broncos.
And so you've got Daniel Jones, who I like.
Mhm like he's not bad.
You guys say Kwan out.
So like, No, they're not worse.
I think it would be between the Broncos and the Jets right now.
And Golly Deng, you Adam Gaisford do.
He screwed up Sam Donald's career.
Like that guy's done.
There's no way he should be done.
He's a good kid in a really good quarterback.
He done rap, all right? No.
If the Giants are the worst team, that's the best thing for the Denver Broncos because they already have their quarterback.
Well, I'm telling you, man, they are because with no sake want, there's not a prayer with no shepherd, there's not a prayer, even a coach.
Well, who's the worst Coach Jay or jury still out on him? Yeah, way gotta get not out there.
They hate they hate him.
Case, they're about to try toe, run him out of town with pitchforks and you know, Flame.
Who's worse gay? Sir Fangio.
I'd have to say Adam case, if I only because he's a he's a D bag Fangio's that, at least like, kind of got some redeeming qualities.
He's not a bad guy, dude, He's not a bad.
He's just a bad situation right now.
No, no, you're a bad coach when you don't how don't know how to manage the clock.
Here's my here's my thing about the Broncos and we'll move on because there's some more quarterbacks that we have to talk about. Two.
So Brett ripping being the starter for the Broncos on Thursday against the Jets, that's what I That's what I know.
Here's Here's why I think it Z because can it get any worse? You're going three.
So why not let the kid play and see what he has, right? Like Borders isn't ready yet, even though he's got a nice brand new picture of him in a Broncos jersey.
So he's got his head shot already good to G O.
But he's not ready yet.
However, I think at some point down the road here, depending on how Brett ripping plays.
I would not be surprised if you guys start playing Blake Bortles in a week or so.
I agree with that.
I agree with that.
You know, he's a hired gun man.
If he goes out there and gets destroyed like man.
All right, we got we got ripping a Driscoll Still e like somebody to the Lions, bro.
He's your most seasoned quarterback out of ripping him, Driscoll and lock.
I mean, you know, the funny thing is, is everyone's just complaining about Blake Bortles release.
That's all I've heard.
They're like, It's the ugliest things in Tebow made it.
Tebow did the clock all the way around the block.
Let's never say a bad word about Tim Tebow on this show.
Come on now, you know exactly all right.
Speaking of quarterbacks, Nick Foles is the new Chicago Bears starter, and unfortunately, you had mentioned this yesterday.
Tariq Cohen has torn his A c l, and he is out for the season.
So veteran Nick folds in, Torbinsky out.
Matt Nagy announced this yesterday.
He said, Foes is our starter moving forward, which I think we all knew it was gonna happen.
Um, that that hit on Tariq or the fact that Tariq Hill tore his A C l during a pump return.
Yeah, man, That was a ridiculous man. Yeah.
That you just sideline this guy for the rest of the season.
I watched that play, too, and that nothing was going to come of it.
I'm, like, just why like that? You know, if he would have made, like, two or three yards, that would have been a positive on that play.
He wasn't going anywhere.
Why do we have him back there? Just find a dude that can catch it.
That's what the Broncos having, Spencer, just catch the ball, E.
Honestly, it was a kind of made me mad because I'm like, you have a slew of these guys that are just I mean, you have guys that are expendable.
There's plenty of them just keeping it real.
When you say expendable, we don't want him to get right.
I think you heard it doesn't affect the rest of your team.
Why take a guy like to re kill and put him in that situation? Yeah, just because we've seen it 1000 times before.
Stupid former pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas is expected to visit Houston today and will likely sign with Texas.
Is this why you laughing? Is just like he's gonna destroy what's left of the chemistry on that team? I mean, it's his team is having its own issues.
Uh, now putting Earl Thomas in here.
Let's hope he knows how to keep his mouth shut.
Maybe you don't.
You don't It's funny.
I was talking to a Seahawks fan. I go.
You know what? Seahawks could use him this year, and they're like, we don't like him because he gave us all the bird when he was leaving the field.
And I was like, Really, that bothers you that bad? And they're like, Yeah, we don't like him.
Why don't they just bring Antonio Brown with a man? You know what it's just like, Why not? You're upsetting the apple cart already.
Ah, lot if you're gonna go in and go big.
Come on. Now he needs somebody.
So let me tell you what I've heard, according to my sources, that that is not a dead issue yet.
Good that it's still getting to Sean watching.
Needs someone to throw the ball to.
Why not Antonio Brown, right? Don't you keep his mouth shut and play and do what he needs to do? Quite honestly, Me? I wouldn't allow him in my locker room, but we're talking about Bill O Brien.
If I Bill O'Brien ideo just keep him out of the cryo chamber to man, you'd be good, E.
So his feet don't get all checked out.
Yeah, that was gross.
Guy's an idiot, man.
So anyway, all right, before we get out of here a couple quick things, Of course, we just said Earl Thomas.
Now, Pete Carroll is not very happy about that tackle that injured Chris Carson as well.
Kind of made me mad as well.
I'm with you at one point.
Look, you've been in the league long enough.
You played this game long enough.
Why would you roll on a guy after the play is dead? Are you really trying to hurt him? So my question to you is was that not just intentional, but did it look like he was maybe trying to hurt him? Attn first When I watched the play live, I didn't think so because I was watching that game and then I saw all the tweets afterwards, so I rewind and I think yes.
So the only the only, uh, the only punishment that fits the crime is that you're out as long as Carson's out.
If he's out for the year, then you out for the year because I think Vontaze Burfict is pushed that envelope a million times.
I think we're at the point now.
If you do something on on purpose of players injured, he's out for some time.
You know what? You can't play either.
I mean, that's the only thing that you can really do and you take their money away to e.
I mean, you can't have that.
Hey, did do it on purpose.
By the way, after watching it, he did.
He was a little Yeah, I'm not disgusted.
And then I saw the tape in slow motion on, and it hurt my heart because Chris Carson Michael is my running back.
But a first degree in the spring, they are talking that he's gonna play this coming week.
Um, it would be like 70%.
Yeah, he's not gonna be, you know, the guy that they're looking for him to be out of the backfield, you know, running the football.
I didn't even think of that.
And I love that.
A strong as he's out, you're out.
Yeah, if he don't play, you don't play.
I don't know that would go over the NFL, but I love I love the I think the players would be fine with that.
I'm not sure that it would pass the vote in the p A in the n f L P A, but I'm sure they'd be cool with it because they don't want that either.
Man, these air professionals, you see him after the game.
They're going out there hugging, loving up on each other, man, they don't wanna hurt each other.
They don't want to, like, ruin somebody's career.
And if there's a guy in there like that, I'm sure they don't want him around anyway.
You know, the thing about it is these guys just I hate to see that.
That's the one thing I hate lately can no better man.
You've been playing this game since Pop Warner days.
Don't be an idiot.
Just do it before the whistle way we're talking about.
Adam gets a little bit of apparently Adam cases come out and said, Not so fast.
My friend Sam Donald will not be French that he is going to continue playing if you're the coach of the New York Jets right now and your quarterback is Sam.
Chris, Are you sticking with them? Yeah, 100%.
Donald, man, I just I don't know what's going on with him.
I gotta be honest with you, man.
I don't know, dude.
He even he's like, I see ghosts, but yeah, man, I think you'd ride with that guy or die.
I mean, you know, that's just kind of what it iss Well, let's look at it this way.
They've lost to the Bills, the Niners and the cult and his backup, Mike White.
Joe Flacco came for two of those guys you don't even know.
Yeah, and we saw what Joe Flacco could bring, so no duty just had next surgery.
Yeah, no dirty off.
Joe Flacco ain't playing.
No, Walter, you know, we don't wanna watch that anyway.
Dude, no talk about seeing ghosts, dude, That was holding all right.
On this day in sports history in 1957 The New York Giants played their last game at the Polo Grounds.
The next year the Giants were in San Francisco, California What? Facebook twist.
Speaking of baseball, the MLB season is gonna or the playoffs are going to start today.
And a couple interesting matchups.
What's the most interesting Reina or matchup for you in the first rounds? Coming up first, Man, I've been looking at all these and I'm really rooting for those twins to put a hurting on the Astros.
Okay, I'm writing everybody.
I gotta be honest with you.
I think in Cleveland Yankees Siri's is gonna be kind of, you know, all these air Pretty good, though.
Is in the American League all these air? Not bad.
I like them all.
I like them all.
I'm looking forward to all of them.

But I would much rather with Sox A's White Sox athletics today as well.
And Blue Jays Rays are also in the mix today for s all goes down on ABC, TBS.
Everything is gonna be televised so you could go down.
E wanna put a apology out there to my good friend Matt Polly on what the Dodgers are going to do to his brewers.
So I just I just want to tell him I'm sorry in advance.
You're my boy, but we've got to do it.
Mhm, dude, that's not gonna last very long. Quick.
Happy birthday to Kevin Durant turns 32 years old today.
And Calvin Johnson, former Detroit Lions wide receiver who holds the record for most receiving yards in a season, turns 35 years old today.
So, dude, he could still be playing.
Why doesn't anyone throw a bucket load of money at him? I have no idea.
No, it makes some sense, right? I pick him up.
He's been out, what, 345 years? I don't even know.
I want to say four.
It's been a while.
Yeah, wait, It actually might be five, because isn't he eligible? I think he's eligible for the Hall of Fame for the Hall of Fame, so it's not five years.
Texans should be like backing up the Brinks truck for that guy.
Wow, A dice man, Andrew Dice Clay celebrates birthday today.
He is 63 years old today, so I gotta I gotta ask you Did you watch the love boat? Yeah.
