mhm and we're back.
It's always great being back with you.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is Ray route.
That man is Connor Carney, and welcome to D p N commentary Conner.
I think that we've been teasing the people long enough, but they're gonna have to wait two more days.
Major announcement for DP on commentary coming this Thursday.
Connor and I have both agreed that we have pumped this up so big that it's gonna be massively disappointing for every well, we're really excited about the news.
But, Connor, let's jump into this man.
All right, so we're gonna look at the featured story that we're covering for SportsCastr today, and that is Bill Belichick.
Offers up a rare compliment to Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
So last night my homes throws for 385 yards against the Baltimore Ravens.
He's now been the fastest quarterback to get to 10,000 yards.
I mean, and I don't think we're outta line by saying Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson seemed to be on a different level than other quarterbacks in the NFL right now.
Absolutely, absolutely. Yeah.
So Bill Belichick said.
This quote all the superlatives that have been said about him.
I just be repeating them all.
That's a pretty strong statement by the coach is basically like you guys have heard it all.
I don't disagree with anything.
The kids amazing.
Pretty much, Yeah, that's pretty much the only thing that we could say.
We could sit here and complement Patrick Mahomes for the entire show if we really wanted Thio.
So like, I think it's fair to say that there's gonna be no talk this year of a Pancakes Pancakes schedule for the Patriots this season.
They beat the improved Miami Dolphins week to they lose an absolute nail biter to the now three and oh Seattle Seahawks, who are essentially being led by the Earl Literally M v P candidate Russell Wilson.
On Sunday, the Patriots then beat the then to a no Las Vegas Raiders.
They were coming off a huge win over the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football, and now the Patriots have to travel to Kansas City to face off against the three.
You know, defending Super Bowl champions.
Now, let's keep in mind that the Chiefs just embarrassed.
And yes, it was an embarrassment to the more Ravens in the reigning M V P 34 to 20 last night.
Okay, but for the second straight week, Connor, the Patriots are getting a little bit of a slight advantage.
They're facing off against a team coming off a short week.
How do you feel about this game? And do you think that the Patriots actually have a chance to win? Yes, I absolutely think they have a chance to win, and I think that the schedule is gonna be extremely hard this year.
I don't think anyone's questioning that, but I think they're getting a little bit lucky here.
With the Chiefs playing on Monday night and then having to play such a good opponent in the Ravens, you know that they put a lot into that game, so it's always difficult to come back and play another really tough opponent, especially on a short week.
I agree with you people gonna get banged up.
You know, it's even like looking at the payer.
The Raiders last week, Uh, Josh Jacobs didn't practice for the week.
Yes, it keeps them a little bit healthy, but it also gets you a little bit tighter doesn't keep you in football shape.
Missing three or four days of practice.
Does doing walk throughs just going through game motions? The Patriots, Of course.
As soon as the game finished Sunday, Bill Belichick could start focusing on Kansas City watching them play.
Baltimore Andy Reid doesn't start watching Patriots tape till Monday night, you know? And then there's no break.
You know, no victory Tuesday.
You got to be back on Tuesday to prepare, you know, and so meetings and all that kind of stuff.
So, yeah, I think the Patriot have a huge advantage again playing a team coming off of Monday Night football.
Uh, that doesn't make this schedule easy by a No, definitely not now.
You came out last week pretty confident the Patriots could beat the Chiefs.
Like it even shocked me a little bit.
How bloody confident you were on Sunday.
Now, of course, that's coming off a big win against the Raiders.
They looked great, especially in the running game.
Are you still that confident going into this week? I mean, I don't think the Patriots is just gonna run over him, and they're definitely gonna win, but I think it's crazy that people are talking this up is like an automatic Chiefs victory, like the Patriots shouldn't be in the same discussion as these teams.
I don't see what they've done to not earn the right to still be considered one of the top teams in the HC, and I think what's amazing about the Patriots? What we've seen this year is that they can play in basically three different ways.
We watch them against Miami, completely predicated on Cam Newton running the football.
Then they go to Seattle and they're airing out the football 400 yards like 397 yards for Cam Newton.
And then last week, the running backs, Yes, corner, the running backs, the running backs.
Man, that was quite the trio.
I mean, I think that what Cam Newton was like the third or fourth Russia on the team.
He led the team in rushing the last two weeks.
So and a credit to the offensive line who didn't seem to miss a beat without David Andrews.
So I absolutely think they have a chance to beat The Chiefs now can do the Chiefs have a chance to beat them.
Of course, they dio stupid e mean, they could very well be the best team in football.
Last night, I think, was that measuring stick game for them against Baltimore.
You know, how good are they? And it is what it is.
But look, this has been a really hard stretch game for New England, and there was some people prior to this season that were predicting the Patriots would be one in three after before, there were even some people believe in Connor that the Patriots could be, Oh, and four.
Now we know that the Patriots were a yard away from heading into this Game three and oh, but let's say the worst happens and they lose the game in Kansas City with the way things have unfolded so far.
Are you comfortable with the Patriots heading in the week five with the two and to record? Yeah.
I mean, based on the schedule, they're playing a lot of really tough teams early, and they're going on the road for the Chiefs game and already for the Seattle game.
So I think they're getting some of the more difficult games out of the way here.
And just based on how the team looks.
I don't think it's anything to be alarmed by.
I still think that the front the front runner to win the A F C East, I still think they're gonna have 11 plus wins at the end of the year.
I mean, I think we talked about before there were, like, six games where they're gonna be really difficult opponents, and we need them to go at least three and three on guy.
I think this is gonna be the toughest one next to Seattle.
So worst case scenario, if they are to and to what kind of is what it iss Yeah, I agree.
That I think is well to this will be the hardest test of the seeds and maybe even harder than Seattle, because it seems like that she's got a little bit of a better defense now.
They are susceptible to some stuff.
But yeah, I think coming out two and two, and I think what this game is gonna come down to if it's not a win, it's gonna come down to a fight right it's gonna come down to is what kind of challenge do they put up against Kansas City? One of those character games, you know, Think about that 2014 blowout on Monday Night Football, which, by the way, was back in 2014.
You know the blow up the sky is falling.
That was September 29.
Today is the anniversary of that game.
I know that because I got a Facebook memory today that said, it's Monday night.
Number 12 shines on Monday nights.
That was September 29 2000 and 14 and I went, Oh, that didn't turn out too well.
Not that I know that.
That was the first and only time I ever doubted the New England Patriots.
To be honest with you, Yeah, that was after that game.
Everyone was a little bit nervous.
I I clearly remember sitting on my front porch with my wife like the next day, going like I think it's over.
You know, after all these years of being so good, I think the Patriots air finally not a good team anymore.
And then, you know, three Super Bowl championships later.
Four appearances later, it's right here.
We are talking about the possibility of Cam Newton bringing the Patriots in the Super Bowl? Yeah, absolutely.
No, I'm really, um I'm really comfortable is well, with two and two.
Now, I gotta ask you this Do you think that later on in the season that that's Seattle Los, which could have been a win for for the Patriots could come back to bite them like, especially if there's a seating race like, Well, that game, Will we look back at it and think, man, if they could have just won that game, we'd be in a way better position now than we were because we think about it.
We'd be going to this Game three and oh saying, Hey, if we lose, we're three and one and and three and one to me can be a big is a big difference in two and two.
But later on, when you're starting to talk about feeding heading down the road, I agree.
When it comes down to who's gonna be getting the buying, who's gonna be getting home field advantage? I don't think it's gonna be terrible for, you know, the A F C East race, their their chance of making the playoffs, But everyone matters.
when it's gonna come down to the end of the year because the Chiefs are probably gonna be looking at, like a 13 and three season, you know what I mean? So if the Patriots to get a little bit behind, I only see the Chiefs losing a couple games all year and it would be huge if this was one of them.
Well, yeah, the Chiefs and you gotta ask coming to games or Baltimore gonna lose because before last night, they haven't like and And let's face it, I don't know if you watch that game, but Baltimore shot themselves in the foot a little bit, too.
There was some dropped passes.
The coaching didn't have a great game.
I mean, let's not fool ourselves.
The Kansas City isn't that superior over Baltimore.
No, no, I agree.
It just looked like they were last night.
It was just one of those games for Baltimore in Kansas City was on their games.
So yeah, Kansas City came ready to play, man.
They just moved the ball so quickly, especially right out the gate.
So I got a couple of fan questions here and there, Actually, both two.
Very interesting questions.
By the way, if you guys wanna ask compatriots questions to Connor and I, you can tweet them at us at d p n underscore Ray or at corner commentary, uh, prefer if you put us both in there, you can also follow me on instagram at d p n underscore, Ray, I put a story up with a question box.
You can send the question if we don't answer your question tonight or Thursday, Um, I will be doing.
I will answer every question and put in a couple videos together to go out on Friday and Saturday.
So everybody's question will get answered.
I try to take the questions that are relevant what Connor and I were talking about.
But please ask anything you want and asked as many as you want.
Joe asked, like, four questions today. Conner. Nice.
So it of course. So, yes.
So, anytime you guys have a question, please just just send them out to us on that, and we will We will go.
Just so you know, the feedback we got on SportsCastrs.
Rhino was saying he'd be happy with two and two any year on.
I mean, we've seen the Patriots won the Super Bowl from two and two.
Yeah, six years ago.
Uh, s So the first question, this is an instagram question.
It comes from I love vibration Nation.
That is a great man.
Do you think that be be held back some defensive wrinkles so they could confuse the Chiefs this week? Probably.
That's an interesting question.
I mean, I think he does game plans week by week for each team, but I also feel like Belichick never shows his full hands.
He's always holding back something.
I think he shows his old whole hand week after week in different ways.
But I agree with you.
I don't think that it was necessarily Hey, we gotta hold this back because we want to show it against the the Chiefs.
Bill Belichick wants to win a game, right? Maybe when they knew they had the game in hand, it's like, Okay, let's play his own.
And let's not show anything else.
Um, you know, because I'm sure Andy Reid's going to see that tape and see the way they took away Darren Waller.
And he's gonna try to find an answer with Travis Kelsey right now, the biggest.
I am going to say the biggest difference with the Chiefs to Yeah, the Raiders.
Yeah, they didn't have Tyree kill and Sammy walk ins and, you know, those kind of in which is harming or whatever those users.
So I mean, and it's one of those things, Like for the patriots.
It's Who do you take away? You've got to take away, Kelsey.
You gotta take away Tyree kill.
But then walk ins can hurt.
You hardly can hurt.
And they're gonna running back now.
They they actually have a running game.
And Edwards, you know, like so there's a lot of things.
So I don't think he held back.
I think that he's going to game plan differently for the skill set that those players have.
And, you know, this is the test for our secondary.
Now who, you know in reality, has started out a little bit slow.
Bit of a bounce back game the last game.
But Gilmour got burned by a galore again on, and I think that it's gonna be a bad game for them.
And I think that the safeties you know, Kyle Duggar and and Devin McCourty should be ready.
And I wouldn't be surprised to see even Jason McCourty moved from the cornerback position to possibly a safety role as well.
There's a lot to go into this one.
It's not just, like, shut down, Darren Waller.
Which is why I thought it was gonna be not easy.
But it wasn't gonna be that difficult of a game because the Raiders offense, we just matched up so well against them.
I had a feeling that yo more and Jackson, we're just gonna take out their receivers.
And for the most part, they did.
And then Waller was obviously just basically invisible the whole game.
But you can't do that against the Chiefs.
They just have too many moving parts.
Yeah, and again, eh? So I don't think he held back against the Raiders.
I think that he just you know, he played the Raiders game plan and they're gonna plan for the Chiefs. Yeah.
Now, this is a very interesting question from Jeffrey Griggs, and I did answer it on Twitter, but I'll go a little deeper into my answer.
But he asked, What do you think it does to a team? Meaning the Patriots, they could go to Kansas City and beat them.
I mean, that's definitely a confidence boost right there just because it's going to show that they can play with who is expected to be and probably is the best team in the A F C, if not the entire league.
So you have tow come away if you win this game feeling like you could go to the Super Bowl, because if they could go through the Chiefs, they could go through anybody.
Yeah, but see, I think that a Bill Belichick team by week five this win won't mean anything.
I think they'll have some confidence.
But, I mean, how many times we've seen teams like Jacksonville beat the Patriots Week two and that's their Super Bowl E.
I think the Patriots they're gonna know it's one game there.
Three and 13 wins in the NFL doesn't get you to the playoffs.
You know, wins knocks you out and, um, you can't win the Super Bowl Week four.
It's just I think what it does is it puts you 23 and one instead of two and two.
That helps you with seeding.
I mean, there's only what The Steelers of the only undefeated team in the A F. C.
Now right Steelers in the Chiefs.
Yeah, the two are the two undefeated teams, so I believe that's it.
If you beat the Chiefs and it's just the Steelers that are left.
So right, um so I think that it helps you with that seating.
You're not playing the Steelers, so you can't even, you know, steal a game from them.
You need them to drop a couple of games.
I think that's more what it is.
I think it does build confidence, but I don't think they're gonna be looking at a, you know, a game, Week seven or week eight.
Or, you know, Week 10 when they play Baltimore or when they gotta play Arizona, I think, Well, we beat the chief so we could beat anybody.
Um, I think it's just gonna build confidence with the team, and I think it will be interesting to see what kind of game plan that the Patriots come up with because we've seen three different plans and let's face Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels.
I mean the adjustments they made against the Raiders mid game just showed why they're the Masters on the sidelines.
Yeah, When they came out in the second half, they just completely ran away with it.
I mean, by the fourth quarter, the game was just over.
Yeah, it waas and I mean, I think that I know I was looking at the numbers, the overall numbers, the Patriots of, like 35% possession of that game.
That's after having two straight three and outs E call it three straight three and outs because they were actually three and out.
Then the penalty got called.
And then they went three and out again.
And But I believe like it was like the second quarter.
Or even though they left that touchdown at the end, Um, they had the ball for 11 minutes and 35 seconds of a 15 minute quarter.
Like that's that's craziness, right? All right, So moving on now, Kim Newton on Sunday was he was all smiles.
We saw him on the bench right during that Raiders game.
We're watching him clown around with Nikkila hairy sliding away, and I think at that time when you're watching it and I believe I think it was Tony Romo who said that maybe wasn't so.
No, I don't think was Tony Romo.
Somebody else said, though, that CBS needs a cam can you know and just tow.
Watch him on the sidelines.
In those moments, I don't think you ever would have guessed that he wasn't happy with his performance that day.
But Noone spoke to reporters on Monday and made it crystal clear that he wasn't happy how we played.
And he made it crystal clear that he needs to play better.
Does Cam Newton's leadership continue to impress you? It really does.
I mean, I didn't really think he was gonna be a problem in the locker room when he came in, but I didn't think he was gonna be like this, Fallen with the Patriots way, this, well, this quickly.
He's already saying all the right things, and I think the crazy thing is he's like, genuinely not just doing it to appease Belichick.
I think he's truly this is who he is, and I think one of the things I've noticed and people are gonna get upset with me.
But I mean, I have to say it, you know, if Tom Brady would have had the type of game that Cam Newton would have had.
He would have been smiling and joking around with people on the bench like that, the way Cam Newton was right.
He was sitting there miserable because he had a bad game or he was mad at his receivers because they couldn't get open.
And I won't put the whole poor performance from Cam on him.
I think the receivers were awful and separation and some points, and I mean, like, you know, I think everybody had two catches each were their highest catch totals right outside of Birkhead.
Uh, so But I think that, you know, we would have saw an upset Tom Brady, where it seems like Cam Newton is leading in a different way.
He's like, Hey, man, we won.
I played bad and are running backs bailed us out and you know I'll be back the next game.
You don't do better, and I think that that's the type of leadership.
It's a different type of leadership that the Patriots didn't have before.
A good way to describe it.
They both had their own ways of doing things, but It's definitely It's definitely different. I agree with you.
He's definitely a lot more lighthearted than what we saw after the game.
Well, and from a leadership standpoint to I mean, one of the reasons Tom Brady was so successful was out clinical. He was.
But the other thing was to is he trusted certain receivers, and if he didn't trust you, don't bother putting them on the field.
So I'm not gonna throw him the ball.
I mean, he said that on Howard Stern, and Belichick would say, Okay, you know, Peyton Manning was like that, whereas, like Cam Newton's like, No, I'm gonna work with everybody.
I want everybody to get involved.
We've got to try to build a chemistry.
Of course, he has his favorites, and it seems like Adelman and hairier his favorites, and he hits Bird from time to time.
But it's like, you know, these guys got to play with confidence.
We need to build it, and he's taking Harry under his wing rather than just letting them, You know.
And and Harry has been frustrating at times this year, you know, and you could see that Cam was frustrated with them, but it's they keep building that sort of relationship, and it's like, Man, I don't have an inner circle.
The inner circle is the Patriots locker room.
So, yeah, I talked about this last night on DP on sports talk, and it's ruffled a lot of feathers.
I'll be honest with you.
It ruffled a lot of feathers, but I wanted to ask you this.
I'm not asking you who is the better quarterback or something stupid like that.
I think we know who the best quarterback of all time is.
He plays in Tampa Bay right now, no question.
But when we're watching a Week three game against the Raiders, is it more fun to watch Cam Newton play football, then watching a clinical, stoic Tom Brady? Remember, I'm fully acknowledging that Super Bowls and a F C championship games are fun.
I'm not talking about success.
I'm just talking about it from a pure entertainment standpoint.
If we weren't Patriot, fans would watching a Patriots game.
Now be more fun to watch it.
Cam Newton, that quarterback than it was ever toe watch with Tom Brady back there, right? Right.
That's hard, because I always I always think about all the winds that Tom Brady has has brought to us over the years.
But I'm not talking about yeah, I'm talking about I'm talking pure entertainment value based on pure entertainment.
It's can do and just has Mawr athleticism.
Obviously, he can avoid the rush in the pocket.
He can make plays out of nothing.
So he's obviously, like, way flashier than Tom Brady, You know, from that type of entertainment standpoint, Yeah, and I agree.
I think it's fun to watch him.
It's more flashy.
It's fun to see him on the sidelines that you know the crazy stuff that he dies of the He's a mean machine.
The outfits, you know, like the whole sort of the build up the nicknames and the press conferences.
Yeah, I love the nicknames.
It's a different vibe, and again, guys don't get me wrong because I know there's people sitting there right now, Connors saying.
Oh, great hating on Tom Brady again.
He's the greatest of all time.
Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time.
He could win the Super Bowl this year with Tampa or with Tampa Bay.
He's got the weapons and he looked pretty good last week like he looked pretty.
Tom Brady, like, Hey, may have a better season than Cam Newton and I'm okay saying that.
But I find Cam Newton very entertaining to watch, like e find it to be a very I find the product to be entertaining that he provides on the field.
Um, when he, you know, when he picked up that first down, I've Brady has screened before, you know, it's not like we never heard Brady screen, but just the way he screamed, the way he pointed first down that brought me out of my seat like that was like, yes, kind of moment.
And he did it by moving around the pocket and then finding a hole to run straight down and do a run that we'd never see Tom Brady be able to make.
And I think that the funnest offensive performance I've seen in a long time was in the Seattle game.
I mean, we haven't seen a shoot out like that in a while, No, and and moving the ball around the field, I mean, Julian Edelman had 179 yards.
That game market is 79 yards like That's insane.
That was insane.
So again, I'm not knocking Tom Brady, so people need to chill.
Oh! Oh, we're moving fast tonight, man.
Like Like we're normally we're like, we only have two topics slapped.
And we're only 22 minutes into the show.
We're cruising right along.
So we're still gonna talk a little bit about the Patriots 2019 draft class, which is take up a little bit of time, and then we're gonna talk a little bit of the Tennessee Titans running football.
Um, hopefully not.
Are you excited about the news on on Thursday? I'm very excited.
I don't I don't know how excited everyone else is gonna be, but I'm excited.
I think they'll be excited.
They will be right.
It's just it's a whole new dynamic thio to this show.
And the exposure that the show is going to get is absolutely phenomenal.
That's what we want.
Um, man, I don't know.
So Rhino says so Here's some of the comments we're getting on on Sports Caster, you know? Believe it or not.
Uh, it's rhino and make chicken chicken blog's because I think the only people who actually comment on this show, Right? Rhino says.
Well, MK Chicken says that last entertaining Brady offense was 2000 and 17.
Rhino says we're allowed to be salty for a year after break a break up eight way.
It's a good point, you know? You're not going to tell us to stop talking about it.
Rhino does have a question.
Uh, Rhino wants to know, uh, how do you feel about Kyle Duggar? I think he's looked awesome.
I think he has is well, too. I think so.
Hasn't Phillips, man? Yeah.
Philip's look great.
They both look great, Phil.
And they're both They've both been.
They've both been multi dimensional in the things that they've been doing.
And Kyle Duggar has been quietly good.
Like we don't see him involved in a lot of plays that are like, you know, these big highlight plays.
But he's been quietly, quietly good.
Yeah, and, uh, it's just, uh it's Yeah.
No, I really like him, too.
I mean, you know, well, but I mean, Bill Belichick doesn't know to draft, though, and that Yeah, and that's sort of the perfect segue into the next.
Even I was trying to kill some time here.
It's the perfect Segway into the next topic, man.
And it's look after last year's draft.
A lot of people were highly complimentary towards Bill Belichick, and some people are even saying that 2019 could have been one of his best drafts ever collectively, by mid season last year, the narrative had changed that Bill Belichick, the general manager, had handcuffed Bill Belichick, the coach.
Yeah, and that's something that comes back in a conversation, usually around week nine or 10 every single every year.
Yeah, you know, this is a repeating thing where every year, like halfway through the year, like we have no talent, we don't know how to draft.
We can't do anything right.
It's the same narrative.
And, of course, like look with with the way the last season unfolded, Um, and you know, in the whole Tom Brady being miserable.
It made a lot of people not high on the 2019 draft picks.
But let's let's fast forward to now.
The 2019 rookies, the now 2020 sop****res are looking pretty breaking good this season, and I think I'd like to take a few minutes with us and just I want to get our thoughts will break down player by player and think about how we think they're doing in 2020.
All right, so we'll go through some of the guys.
Let's start with sort of the Enigma.
Yep, he's already surpassed last year in receptions.
I think he had 12 catches last year.
He already has 15 and three games.
Seems to have a good connection with Cam Newton.
Yep, I'm not going to sit here and dwell on a Week one fumble at the goal line.
No, me, neither we'll say is is you still see where he needs improvement.
Separation is still an issue for him.
He doesn't have that explosive speed.
I think he needs to use his body strength a little bit more kind of the way Gronkowski did.
But one thing we've seen is when he has the ball in his hands, how tough he can be.
I think we've seen that when Cam Newton puts the ball in his direction is those hands are pretty reliable, right and I mean outside of the fumble.
I haven't seen any riel noticeable mistakes this season.
I think him missing the you know him not avoiding the first half ankle is something that will come, and they need to coach him up on that.
But I've been pretty.
I don't wanna say impressed, but I've been pretty happy with the way Nikkila Harry played this year.
Right overall, I think he's actually been pretty good.
I think everyone just wants someone to come out and they want to see like a Tyreek Hill.
Like real, flashy like huge 60 yard touchdown like explosive guy.
It doesn't look like neo Tokyo.
Harry is gonna be like that, but it doesn't mean he's not gonna be good in his own sense.
And unfortunately, he's going to be compared to D.
Metcalf the rest of his career, right? Which is a physical specimen it is, But the Patriots could have had him write.
The Patriots chose Nikkila.
Harry, right? The Patriots used the first round draft pick on Nikkila.
Harry de came back up one in the second round.
She came mccaf, though he tried to walk it into the end zone and, uh, huge fumble.
Yep, and and And that wasn't in Akil Harry fumble that was much different.
That was a very non Patriot like fumble that was actually and absolutely so.
I mean, there's reasons he went with Nikkila Harry, but because because we especially on a on a night that you saw d.
Metcalf burned, you know, our best cornerback, who is probably one of the best corners in the league mawr than once? Uh, I think, unfortunately, it very much like Midst Robiskie is always gonna be compared to Patrick Mahomes like it's his fault that the Bears picked him instead of the homes.
You know, um, I just think that that's the unfortunate piece, but I've been I've been happy with him.
I think that he's doing what he can.
I think that he can become a bigger weapon as this season develops.
After week after Week four, I think we'll start to see a little bit of a different Patriots team.
Whether that's for better or worse, we'll have to see.
But we always know that, you know, October always bring something different in New England.
Yeah, and I think we have to give him a lot more time because he played half of a season which wasn't even he wasn't even really out there to give him a fair chance last year.
And we're only three games in so far this season.
So I think that it's Yeah, I want to give him more time.
Let's move on to another one of Bill Belichick's draft, Mrs.
Because I could talk about this chase window vich bum.
Oh, like God, Why would Belichick waste a draft pick on Chase Window? Oh, my goodness, I know how terrible he's looked so far this year.
Just manhandling people in harassing quarterbacks.
What? What a poor pack.
I mean, he's just been dude like I still go back to his play in the third quarter when the Raiders it's third down and he just harasses Derek Carr forces car to throw the football away.
That leads to a missed field goal, and the game was over after that.
The game was over over after that, got a sack and a half first sack of the year, and he gets the sack and a half.
He's well on pace to match, at least matching what he did last season.
We're seeing him on the field more, but I mean he does a lot.
You know, Belichick always talks about the things that guys do that don't show up on the stat sheet, and we see that a lot.
Teams were paying attention to where Chase Window, which is.
He's drawing attention, and any time you got a player drawing attention, that helps other players on your team do certain things.
I mean, he could have been the steal of the draft last year, right? Oh, absolutely.
So far in what we've seen in the first three games.
I mean, he looked really good last year, and now I think he's taking a huge step forward.
I think by the end of the year, he's gonna be considered one of the best linebackers in the league.
I think staying on this course, he's gonna go to the Pro Bowl.
I love you because you just like you and you're not even like a Homer about it.
You're just so freaking confident.
You're just like I am.
I just I do the eye test, man.
When I watch these kids, I feel like the same way in baseball very strongly.
You could tell early if they're gonna have it or not.
You know what I mean.
And I could tell just by watching this kind of like, he's gonna be really good.
No, I mean I mean, I was super impressed with him last year.
E I was already.
It's not like he's taking this big leap this year.
I think he's just like, consistently getting better.
Yeah, and I was already in love with this kid last year, a guy who I don't think we talk enough about, but is a big piece of this team at certain moments.
And they're punter Jake Bailey, right? I forgot. I forgot.
I forgot about him.
They always find a way to have a very good punter.
Well, usually a kick or two.
I don't know what's happening used today, and we'll talk about how Nick Folk is a problem later on.
Um, but you know, I mean, Jake Bailey's got a canon of a leg is a phenomenal It's pretty accurate.
Yeah, this is the season to that.
I haven't been overly impressed with the Patriots special teams, right? In comparison the last season, they were phenomenal.
Well, I think comparative to the last 10 years.
I mean, the patrons have always had very strong special teams, but it's only Week three.
We could have things improved, a little bit of different personnel, that kind of thing.
Landon Roberts was actually a huge special teamer.
So you're missing him, so there's sort of different things you're working through.
But I think that, you know, I mean again, you never think of the punter.
But my dad always talked about punters and talks about like If you don't have a punter who can, you know, change the field, you know, it's he says, You're gonna find yourself in trouble.
I think, Look, let's think back to the playoffs against the Titans last year, right? Titans air up.
The Patriots have a chance.
They make the stop.
Tom Brady is going to get the ball back with, like, a minute What minute? 20 left or something, right? What do they do? They punt the ball to the one yard line, right? And when the Patriots, with a minute 20 had to start in their own end zone, you basically knew then that the game was over, right? Absolutely.
It drastically changes if you could give them terrible field position.
I mean, Obviously, the one toe like the 30 is just astronomical difference.
And it the one to the 10 is an astronomical difference, because when you're in your own goal line, you're not thinking about moving the ball up the field and scoring a touchdown.
You're thinking about getting out of the end zone.
Otherwise, you end up like Derek Carr on the weekend, fumbling in the end zone, you know, because there he's either giving up a safety or he's given up a touchdown, right? Like no matter what he was, they were giving up points.
Yeah, Either way, the game was over at that point.
So you know the Patriots have a chance against the Titans, and then they have a great punter who punched him into the one yard line.
And, you know, at that moment, suddenly a kicker is an actual football player, right? Yes, I remember once.
Listen to Pat Maccabi, who's just the man of America and oh, no, sorry.
Rich Eisen is now the man in America for me.
Did you see his tweet about the Atlanta Falcons? Know that the Atlanta Falcons, or protest in the league that the football games should be reduced to 75 minutes.
E Falcons man, Uh, but yeah.
So, Matt Pat McCabe.
He comes out and says, You know, he was a punter and he says, like you know other He goes NFL players and football players are allowed to make fun of me for being a punter because their NFL players, he goes.
But if you're just some fat Joe smoke sitting on your couch, guys like you and I, right, he says any punter in the league will whip your ass.
He says he's still professional athletes, he says, and they're much more athletic and much more, you know, superior than you are in any way possible.
Imagine that's going out there trying to punch.
With guys barreling down on you, I get scared.
I'd go into the fetal position, punted six yards like the sideways.
If you're lucky luck, you're lucky, or I'd want to snap the ball 40 yards behind the line of scrimmage so I don't Nobody can get to me before I get the ball off and I'll kick it 60 yards but only be a 20 yarder because you know, I was 40 yards back when I took the snap, because I would just be terrified to be hit like I don't know, dude, it's the NFL is something is different.
I mean, the viciousness of the NFL compared to high school or college, is like this world out of this world.
You got everyone in there is just enormous.
Just the speed, the speed, the strength of these people, the strongest, fastest people in the world.
There's ah, there's a reporter here name Stephen Brunt.
And, um, he was talking about the first time he covered a Super Bowl and he was in.
He was, like, near the end zone as a reporter.
And there was a collision on, like the 10 yard line, like just a tackle.
And he said it was the most violent thing he'd ever seen or heard in his entire life.
Like being their host.
When he said he could not believe he said, the sound of the pads making contact with each other actually sounded like a car accident, like so, No.
Yeah, I'd be scared to punt.
I'm not even afraid to admit it.
I'm not even afraid to admit I'd be scared to punt the football.
All right, then. You got Juwan Williams, man.
Um, he's had ah, hell of, ah, run this year.
Hey, was a part of taking care of Darren Waller over the weekend again? Another guy who's he's been pretty involved in the game plan.
Like, what's your thoughts been about him, right? So far, so good, man.
Honestly, I kind of wasn't even thinking about him.
But I think now, looking back on it, What was he, 1/4 round pick, too? Uh, no.
He was the second he was the second pick.
Okay, because yeah, I mean, I'm I'm just thinking about that now, man, now that you say that he did help take out Darren Waller and I don't didn't even realize that it was him.
What? What's that? I said? I didn't even realize that was him.
But he did help take out Darren Waller.
Yeah, well, there was a lot lately.
Completely quieted him down.
I was reading the comment shots when you were I was trying.
I'm trying to produce it the same time as you know, You got a lot going on, but yeah, I know it was him. It was him.
And, uh, Gilmore had him for a little bit.
I mean, they had a They double team him at one point, McCord he broke up one of his, like Devin McCourty broke up one of his passes.
I mean, they just beat him by committee.
Yeah, it was everyone on him.
At one point, it was Devin McCourty towards the end zone.
Whether he looked like he was wide open, McCord, he came out of nowhere.
And then you got Damian Harris, who's eligible to come off the IR this week.
We don't know if he's going to, but he's eligible to come off the i.
We don't know if he's gonna play, but it's gonna put an interesting little kink into the Patriots.
Uh, you know, running back room and depth chart.
But everything we heard come out of the camp is he looked the most impressive in camp.
Yeah, I heard that, too.
I mean, at this point, obviously, he's just a huge question mark.
I think he has, like, four career carries, and they were in the fourth quarter last year, and they wanted by a million in the beginning of the season.
So we don't know what he's gonna do, but it's only been one year they basically red shirted him, so we can't mark him up as a loss or anything.
We're gonna find out hopefully this year what he's made off.
It just always blows my mind how people talk about how poorly Bill Belichick is.
That the draft, right? And then you start looking at the players that the Patriots have.
Yeah, and they're either built like a lot of them are Bill Belichick draft picks or they are undrafted free agents.
Yep, And you just sit there and go like So how is he bad at this? Because he misses because other GMs missed two like they understand, right? Like you know what? Like Bill Belichick didn't draft midst Robiskie first.
Overall, that wasn't Belichick.
This is basically like wanting Cam new inner Tom Brady to never throw an interception, but to try and complete a million pass attempts.
You know what I mean? You can't just draft somebody unbelievable every time at every pick of the draft.
So it just doesn't happen.
Sony Michelle James White Patriots Burger draft picks, right? JJ Taylor.
Undrafted free drafted free agent Yacoub Johnson comes over from Germany Um Julian Edelman, Bill Belichick Draft pick.
Seventh round quarterbacks.
Nikkila Harry Draft pick.
Jacoby Meyers Who people seem to be in love with Belichick.
Draft pick Matthew Slater.
Special teamer of the decade of the Decade Belichick Draft pick Isaiah Zuber, who had a great sort of, you know around into the special team, are undrafted free agent.
A guy who people over evaluate too much, in my opinion.
Gonna Rusevski I don't think he says, Yeah, I don't know why people are so in love with him and why? I think if he if his name was like Todd Johnson, less people would care.
And then David Andrews, Undrafted free agent Isaiah Win draft pick Joe Tooni Draft pick.
Marx's absolute studs in the offensive line.
You know Shaq Mason, draft pick.
They have one of the best offensive lines right now in the league.
They dio Then you get the defense.
Adam Butler, um Chase win.
You look really good.
So yeah, you know what? Give it to him because I was ready for the patriots toe.
I was so sick of him.
You know, you and I talked about a Detroit's Weiss was always good for, you know, he's gonna come back.
He was always good for a stupid penalty.
And he was always good for a missed A missed tackle.
Sometimes during the game.
But he's been great this year, right? Dante? Hi there. A lot. Yeah.
Dont'a Hightower is a Patriots draft pick.
E think he's okay? I think hey, has some weird nickname.
Like Mr February.
I don't know why they call them that.
Yeah, John Bentley is, uh how about, uh, there's this other guy.
I don't know if you know.
I'm Devin McCourty. I heard he's okay.
You know you have you heard him? I've heard he's okay.
They also they've got this undrafted free agent.
Know, if you ever heard of the names J.
Jackson, he's, uh I don't know.
I don't Have you ever heard of him either? He's, uh, He's a kid, though.
You know him? He's a position on the team.
I mean, I don't know how good he is, but like you like, you hear that? Like, I don't wanna be condescending.
Everybody but like all these players that you claim are great and you love you do that.
We're all Bill Belichick products half half from one.
Drafted like God.
Yeah, every year it's a gold belt can draft.
You can't do this. That's all right. He may.
He makes up forward after the draft by signing people who weren't drafted.
But look at all the players I said who were drafted.
I know, you know, Look at Joe Tune.
He moves over from Guard Play center in the NFL for his first time ever, and you never would have known.
It never would have known it for a second that Joe Tooni has never played guard before.
A bunch of a bunch of of the team from We want him as their center right now.
I would, you know, you think you think Miami Center looking with Ted caress going on? Jeez, we could have signed Joe Tooni, right? But this brings up a good question, okay? And it's not a rookie question, but this comes from Logan Hallowell on Instagram.
It's up, it's up.
And he said, Should we really jump on the Sony Michelle Hype train just after one good game.
And that's a really good question.
Probably not, but he did look really good.
It's so easy to be reactive, right? Like it's the easiest thing in the world is that takes some sort of reactive take two things.
It took two years for me.
Thio finally jump off the Sony Michelle bandwagon and say, I'm done with him.
I think it was last week.
We were finally like we finally my throw in the towel.
He really doesn't look that good.
Let's move on to J.
J. Taylor and Damian Harris.
And then he came.
He came out of nowhere. It was last.
It was last Thursday.
We had that conversation, E.
I mean, I think you said a perfect Sunday, like all you know what? All this time, all it took was him losing his job.
Just tell him you're not really gonna get the ball anymore.
And then well, you look like he was ready to go.
All of a sudden he could break a tackle.
You know, Um, no, but I think you're right.
I think that if we're gonna, you know, Crown Sony Michelle is back to his former 2018.
I think that we need to see a little bit more.
I don't need them to have 115 yard game every day.
But I think consistently, I think, you know, I think he's like he averaged 14 yards per carry or something like that.
I mean, that's not gonna be a sustainable number across, you know, for the rest of the season.
Uh, but I think if you can average 4.
5, you know, per carry a zoo long as it's over 3.
9, Um, then, yeah, Then I'll be right back on the train and be like, Hey, yes, when Michelle is back, Yeah, I agree.
We just need him to kind of get back to even the 2018 form and to just move the football.
Because prior to this, it was just like last year he couldn't break a tackle.
Really, He couldn't really do anything on his own.
Kind of like if there was a lane for him to run through, he'd be fine.
But if not, it was like he's gonna get two yards.
No, I know, and it's it's look and give credit to Yacoub Beyonce into who's been playing absolutely phenomenal.
It's a full body, I mean again.
I mean, it's I'm not missing James Devlin.
Who's the guy? I thought we were really gonna miss this, right? Or who is the guy who opted out? They had another fatality.
Fatality? Yeah, I guess.
I guess that's that's fine with us, right? E thought we were gonna miss him, but no.
And this sack of Johnson is young and could be the Patriots fullback for a long time.
All right, so we went from killing time to running out of time s Oh, that's the way the show goes.
So, dude, the Tennessee Titans announced today that they've had multiple Positive cove in 19 test.
I think it was three players, five personnel or something like that.
Yeah, Dude, up here in Canada, though, like we're knee deep into our second wave now way hit a record number in the province of Ontario yesterday with 700 new cases, that's the most we've had ever since throughout the epidemic.
Ever even hire a peak? We're not even They're saying we're not going to even peaked the middle October.
Our models were showing will be over 1000 cases a day by the time we hit there.
W ts Yeah, and it's primarily in the greater Toronto area to which is where I live.
Eso I've also seen reports of multiple hot zones in New York.
The global death rate has now reached a million.
And with all the seriousness and frankly, the fear and the anxiety about the virus, I still can't help thinking about the National Football League.
There were a lot of people who believe we weren't going to see a season at all this year.
Yeah, but, dude, if I'm perfectly honest with you, I mean the titans to me, you're just the first team.
Um, I was hoping we were going to avoid this.
I kind of forgot about it the first three weeks.
They were doing a fantastic job.
And at this point, I'm gonna say, I can't say I'm confident that we're gonna see the finish of the season or at least we're not going to go through some sort of pause.
Um, they're already talking about possibly postponing the game this weekend.
I mean, I don't I don't think e.
I don't think they can do it like Major League Baseball did it, where teams just don't play games.
You know, e you know, just does this season get extended? Do we have a week 18 19 and 20 to make up for some of these, You know, missed games and the other teams get a couple weeks off.
But is it fair for a team who played all 6, 16 games have to sit there for three or four weeks waiting.
You know that's unfair, too.
Like, what's your thoughts on this? Do you think we'll see an entire season? Do you think that it's, you know, the way it's intended, like 17 straight weeks in the playoffs? Do you think there will be a pause? Or do you think the NFL just, you know, come hell or high water? There's gonna be a season.
I feel like, no matter what, there's gonna be some sort of season.
I mean, we saw baseball do it, so I think the NFL will definitely do it, but I don't know how fair it's gonna be.
I want to see what happens this week with what they do with Tennessee because now it looks like they have no team activities through Saturday.
Was it? Yeah, well, and now they're thinking of pushing the game till Monday night, given extra day.
And from what I've heard is, as of right now, Pittsburgh has been told to keep preparing as if there's a game this weekend and and in Tennessee is under the impression gonna win.
But they may have to go into the game on Sunday or Monday with zero.
Yeah, I mean, that's gonna be very difficult to not have them practice.
I know they can watch a ton of film at home, obviously, but there's just no way.
It's the same to go out there and actually practice to get ready for the game.
I mean, it's gonna be really tough for them to just have a walk through on Saturday and then come out and play Sunday.
But I don't know what else to Dio.
I don't have any other suggestions for what they can dio well, and they're gonna be working out at home and there's gonna it's like a virtual offseason again.
But great, I think I don't know.
I think if the game gets postponed, it's going to start asking questions about how we finish this season, right, because when did they make that game up? It's not like baseball.
We even just play a doubleheader.
No, I guess you could change them by weeks and games around and figure that kind of e mean they went through.
This was two years ago.
Tampa and Miami were playing and there was a hurricane.
They couldn't play the first week of the season, so they they changed their both of their by weeks to the same week they played.
They they had no bye week.
They changed it.
I think they changed it around that.
They played on somebody's bye week, right? So you could do stuff like that.
Or maybe again, maybe you gotta go to If you've got to start canceling games, you got to go to a 20 game, a 20 week season, Stoneleigh playing 16 games and throwing extra bye week here and there for teams.
You know it's gonna get funky, though, because then I don't know when how to match up the by weeks and who's gonna lose a week or gain a week somewhere I mean, because this is granted that this is the only outbreak.
If there's more outbreaks, then I think it's just gonna be a like spiral effect of trying to figure out what the heck to Dio.
Now, I'm not gonna pretend like the NFL doesn't have some contingency plans in place.
I'm sure they're not just sitting there now, going like we never saw this coming, right? You know what I mean? Like, I'm sure they talked about.
Okay, if this happens here, is gonna be the protocol.
Here's what we're gonna do.
Here's how if a game is gonna get canceled here, how it gets, here's how it gets made.
Made up without putting any team including the infected team into, you know, harm's way, right? Um, yeah, man.
I mean, look took three weeks and the Tennessee Titans just happened to be the team that ruined it for everybody.
I mean, I don't wanna make light of it.
I saw a tweet today from a reporter that he was talking to a player in Tennessee and apparently the Titans players were all this more panicked right now about anything else and they're worried about their families and and some of their coaches who are a little bit older, you know? I mean, there's a lot of concern for a lot of people.
So it's Ah, I mean, you know, it's funny because every once in a while you forget that we're living in the middle of a global pandemic.
I think, especially since we've all started, You know, I'm back toe work, your back toe work like we started the show because of the pandemic.
We had nothing to do.
So we put a podcast together, you know, or put a put a live show together, and now it's like Now we're both back to work and now it's actually work for us to come here at at 9 p.
And do the show, You know, we're tired, so it does seem like it's a lot like it's just taking a back seat all of a sudden, maybe because sports are back and everyone's getting back to normal life, and now we're kind of forgetting, and now reality is hitting.
But I think Tennessee made reality.
I mean, like, dude to me, and I say this all the time.
This stuff got riel like Kobe got riel when they shut down the MBA, right? Yep.
Like and then I'll never I'll never forget that.
I was on here when I found out I was on here.
I think my chicken broke it.
Yeah, I was on here.
Found out I spent the rest of the show kind of just going like, Oh, my God.
On at that point, there was like, I was still at work.
At that point, we were getting, like, 35 cases a day in Ontario were at 700 cases a day.
Now we're 35 a day, and we're panicking about this Kobe pandemic.
You know, the MBA shuts down the NHL, I think played one more night than they shut down major league baseball.
And but here is the thing the MBA postponed.
That's what they said. We're gonna postpone. Yeah.
Major League baseball was the first team to come out and say we're postponing indefinitely, and that word indefinitely made me go.
You know, like Mark Cuban believed the n b.
A is going to shut down for two weeks, you know, and and think about it, man. They shut down.
They stopped that game and the crowd There was a full building.
They were apologizing to the fans.
Little did we know we'd be where we are right now.
I don't know this the more I reflect on that whole the whole Kobe thing.
And I think back to those early days, I just But it always it makes me laugh now that we were, you know, panicked about 35 a day, and now we're living through 700.
We're all still going to work like everything is OK, right? Seriously, everything has changed and shifted in that sense as well that Oh man e don't know, man.
I really don't know what's gonna happen As far as the NFL season goes, either.
I think that's what I've been broken yet.
Oh, but I think that's what would break me E because all I was keep the only thing that kept me going was the NFL season coming, you know, Right, Dude, I got so ecstatic that the draft, because it was actually something football related on and sports related, it wasn't just speculation and free agency and Jared Stein.
I'm gonna be a good quarterback you know, And that might be my breaking point.
You guys might see me on the show.
Just go in like this, just Connor talking.
And me just all over the place we're gonna We're gonna finally lose our minds officially.

I'm not gonna repeat e do I appreciate all of you on YouTube and the reason that corner and I are back on YouTube.
But I'm back on Monday night.
This was all negotiated that we're able to do this, you know, to make sure that we're allowed toe what we're allowed to be exclusive or nonexclusive.
And I did that because I do appreciate you guys.
I talk about the Patriots, but I just you know, I something has clicked with with what I do and with what Connor does on SportsCastr.
And the views are reflective of that.
The audience was reflected the retention.
We have an 8% retention rate on YouTube.
We have a 48 retention rate on SportsCastr e means out of those 10,000 people 48 there watching at least 48% of the stream.
That's really good on sport. On YouTube.
We're getting like, 8% of an hour.
That means people are watching, like, eight minutes, six minutes of the show.
So I'm not knocking anybody.
I appreciate you all on YouTube, but I hope I've answered it now.
I'm not obsessed with sports because I worked for SportsCastr.
Um, I'm trying to balance is the best that I can.
Does this make sense to you, Connor? It does.
Come on. Come on over. Watch on, SportsCastr.
There's There's no big difference, man.
It's all the same.
There's no there's no competition.
What's better? YouTube or SportsCastr? You know what I mean? No, I think it's because I do exclusive stuff on SportsCastr and they feel like I'm turning my back on them by doing exclusive SportsCastr content and not exclusive YouTube content.
Yeah, that's what they pay you for.
