Hey, everyone, I'm Grand Flood from fluster sports are Welcome back to another edition off the all sports talk show.
Yeah, good one for you, boy.
Great time to be a sports fan.
Tampa Bay Lightning or your Stanley Cup Champions Lakers and Heat MBA piles going on right now.
Same thing with the MLB playoffs.
A lot of exciting stuff in the sports world, of course.
The NFL's chugging along as usual outside the poor Titans and Steelers.
But other than that, NFL is going good and I'll toss over Sam.
Hope you guys enjoy great episode.
Yeah, thanks, Grant.
I appreciate it a lot.
Thanks everyone, for tuning into another addition of the all sports talk show here on SportsCastr.
We appreciate it as always.
And yeah, I'm looking forward.
Toa what should be a very entertaining show? As Grant said, It's just sports heaven right now, isn't it? We've got so much to discuss and the out looking forward to the show ahead as I toss it back to Isaac.
Yep. So a good showing.
Let's introduce him himself.
Mark, how's it going today? Hey, how's it going, guys? Great being back.
Thanks for having me Yep, of course.
So we're going to get started and ask you a little bit about statement games.
You should know what it is.
You're the CEO guys, really fun platform to use.
But obviously, Mark couldn't, uh, say much more better things because he's the CEO about it.
Well, Standard Games is successful at www dot statement games dot com.
We also have APS to complement the website.
I can't really stress this point enough here. Statement games.
It's It's just a game.
We've created a game.
We've got a little bit of a different twist on fantasy sports.
What we do is a company is we create games around specific sporting events.
For example, this Sunday night we have three eagles in the 40 Niners.
So what we do is we present people who want to play our game with a list of props.
Or hence the company named statements that are specific to the Eagles 40 Niners game, for example, you know, went over under 20 completions for the game, the 40 Niners defense over under 2.
5 sacks for the game.
On average, we're gonna present you with a list of anywhere between 50 to 60 different crops.
Um, that related thio, each sporting event that you want to play in.
It's your job to go through the list and picked 10 of them, and as you make your picture, one of rank them in order of confidence from 10 for one.
So as this sporting event plays out, if your number 10 pick becomes correct, you're gonna get 10 points if nine through water. Incorrect.
Well, now you just have a total of 10 points.
You play the league of anywhere between 8 to 12 people and the person with the most points from correct picks at the end of the game that you choose to play in wins.
This is a free to play game.
Uh, doesn't question anything.
I'm gonna play a za member of the community.
You're you're competing for what we call statement games, coins.
It's your job through competition and through other aspects of the platform to ac***ulate as many of these coins as you possibly can, and when you're ready, you wanna exchange them for a cash gift card of your choice, so it's important to keep him on that statement.
Games have a whole fully functional reward system.
It's probably about like 80 to 85 different retailers that populate award reward system.
So anything from, you know, Nike on the armor NFL shop, Google Amazon.
Eventually, just wanna exchange your coins for a cash gift card of your choice.
So, uh, just a game.
Hopefully, you guys have have some fun with it, and, you know, I'll make that part again.
Just have fun with a little bit different form of fantasy sports.
Hopefully that helps.
Yeah, great description, Mark.
I played a lot myself.
So, uh, that's why I'm really happy about this partnership.
We're gonna have to stay in the game, So nice.
Cool logo. You guys start the beginning of the show.
So eso next week.
But we'll try and do is I want to try and call about some inventory.
We'll get a You know how a specific tournament, just you guys with your logo associated with the game and things like that.
Uh, your case, Isaac.
And, you know, hopefully it's a It's a game if they can kind of continue doing what they're doing, But it looks like they knocked off the cubs today.
So a little hint here, maybe for some of the upcoming Marlins games next week, your show will be the primary, you know, sponsor or featured, you know, podcast around.
That's one minute. We can have some fun with it.
So we'll get right into it.
Um, Grande and Sam myself.
We started making contest and one of the contest All three of us drawings.
So we can all talk about this specific contest Is the cheese Patriots game that is happening Sunday.
So we'll let it first start at in preview.
Uh, you know, our picks for that and kind of not all of our picks, because then someone that's the smartest May is gonna just top 10 picks.
So if Grant has been on that, well, they're also gonna do good.
So before that, just quickly give you a quick tour of, you know, around statement games.
Uh, each day you could spin the wheel for free corns, but here's the lobby lobby or the all the tournaments.
Uh, all the tournaments that are available to join.
And so we see on top New York Giants Roast Rams, Patriots rose, Kansas City Now I only joined the Kansas City contest Grant and sanded.
Now there are a few because, like Mark said 6 to 12 people in a contest.
Once those fill up, that's not the end.
They had an extra contest, so that's why there's a few of those contests.
So anyway, here's the home page.
You see all the contest available to play, and then there's a standings leader board for all of your contest.
So look at this, guys.
See, I'm an expert at the Marlins.
I join you contest yesterday.
I want both of them and I win both of these two Marlins contest today.
They were risky because I had the Marlins winning as my 10 point picks.
Why were you? That's a good call. ****.
I want to give them some good luck.
I don't care if I don't win on statement games.
I want the Marlins stolen, so that's kind of what it is.
But without further ado, uh, let's, uh, let's get to that.
So here's Here's my chief's game, but let me just quick and show you what it looks like when you finish.
So here's my picks.
Uh, I won this contest now, Like Mark said, you were listening to him statements one through 10.
Obviously, you have 10 point statement's gonna be the one your most confident in.
And I was the most confident that the New Orleans that the Cubs wouldn't win by over 1.
And I was right on that, but, uh, six.
So Sanders didn't pitch over six innings.
But anyway, here's my statements, my one point statements, the one I'm least confident with, even though that statement was right.
So without further ado, let's get to our Chiefs Patriots give you a little quick preview.
If you guys actually know what standing games is, or if you're just finding out what it is, we'll start with you.
Sam, what is your 10 point statement and what? What are some statement for you that you know you think are easy wins, easy locks, you know that it's gonna get right.
Yeah, sure, I'll go right ahead and get e Think I'm pretty confident with All right, So my 10 point statement I took a little bit of a gamble here, but I think I think it was I said New England Defense.
We'll have over 1.5 turnovers.
What about the fungal or an interception? I've I've been pretty impressed for the most part with this Patriots defense.
Obviously, they got tested against Seattle, but that was to be expected against a great defense like the Seahawks.
Um, but I just feel like the Patriots defense will know that they have to have a huge game, Um, in order in order to slow down, which is almost impossible to do this this explosive Kansas City offense.
Now I'll get to another pick about the Kansas City offense later on, but but I still feel like I feel like this could be a game full of turnovers.
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the Patriots turn the ball over two or three times as well.
I just have the feeling it might be, Ah, wild game like that.
So yeah, that that is my 10 point pick I took.
I took a gamble with that, but I have confidence that the Patriots Ken force over 1.
5 turnovers and then when it comes toe other picks that I'm pretty confident with.
I said, Nick Focal have under 2.
5 field goals because he can't even make one feel like.
So I'm really confident in that pic Aziz.
Well, I mean, Nick Folk has just been, you know, miserable the Patriots.
Definitely a new kicker.
I would be shocked if he would.
He made under over 2.5.
So I have them going under goes at the same time.
I'm confident that Harris marker we'll make over 2.
5 because I think one of the best kickers in the league, and I think he'll make some clutch field goals in this game, and it could prove to be the difference if you want me to be honest.
And then when it comes to one other pick that I am pretty confident with, I would go with Patrick Mahomes over 2.
5 touchdown passes. E.
Nothing's really gonna gonna change my mind about my homes because he is easily the best quarterback in the league, in my opinion, and there's no reason to think that he's going to slow down.
I think he'll be electric in this game as he was against Baltimore on Monday night and, you know, a a majority of the Kansas City touchdowns are on my home passes, so I have them having at least three passing touchdowns in this game.
So those are the Those are the picks on most confident with.
Some are taking a little bit of a gamble, but yeah, it should be a great game for sure.
And yeah, we'll see how my pick scope. Great.
So we'll go to grant.
Now, what do your topics? I know you could give some if you agree with saying you could say why you agree with him, but you don't agree with him.
You don't have to say it, but what are your top? It's definitely Harrison Buttner making over 2.
That was definitely up there to the main one I'm looking at Is Rex Burkhead going under 80.
5 yards? Uh, you know, he had a great game last week, had Las Vegas don't get me wrong, but I do believe James White will be back in the lineup and it just simply Burke is more of a receiving back.
And that's why you know, they were utilizing him a lot last week.
But just overall, Kansas City knows better.
I think we're going to really shut down a potentially under 30 40 yards.
Even I would definitely say that for Kansas City, I would say Sammy, Watkins and Tyree kill combined over 10.
I'm expecting, you know, say Milwaukee police have four or five zone the entire e kill.
You could have 78 even Mawr.
If you know he's really on a roll in the homes, you know, usually targets him.
So I would definitely say, saying Watkins entirely kill over 10.
I definitely say that and then another one.
That is kind of a risk here, but I think Cam Newton will get over 2.
I think he will get one rushing and to passing that.
But But I think overall he will be pretty good against this Kansas City defense.
Of course, you might as well be picking my homes as well, throwing for a lot, you know, throwing for over my home.
5 and higher, that was one of mine is Well, you know, I think both quarterbacks gonna play.
Spectacular comes Sunday, but it was mainly Miami picks I'd recommend.
Yeah, great. Now I'm only gonna name one pick.
And I think this is actually picked that some people probably don't even have, um, on any of their statements for May.
It's and I'll see how Sam likes us because he's a big Patriots fan.
My 10 points statement into the New England tight ends.
All of them will get under 30 33 35.
5 combined yards.
Now it's gonna be my luck Cam Newton, those a 40 yard pass on one plate or tight end.
But these tight ends like besides, you know, Devon, Aussie Aussie actually being on the field and is Oh, you're not getting targeted.
So I think this is a confident pick and let's say they get targeted.
It seems like these tight ends or type of, you know, maybe red zone target, just a five yard reception.
So I feel like that's most confident pick that maybe some people don't even have, for some reason I feel that way.
They don't have that on any of their boards.
Now, Mark, I know.
You know the picks very well.
So maybe you're not competing in a contest.
Um, what are your picks? That you think you should really choose? Well, first of all, great ****ysis, great job and breaking down the the game.
Guys really appreciate you taking the time to to take a look at statement game is intertwined that in with your own, you know, personal thoughts on what could potentially take place over the course of the specific NFL game, you know? Kudos to you. Great job.
Uh, something you guys should be commended on here.
So when I can I Can I take a look? This game here, I mean, from the Kansas City Perspectively.
What was it like 16 games in a row going back like last year in terms of the number of games that they've actually won now, kind of going into, like in a week number four besides, from week number two against the Chargers.
I mean, it's pretty much like an automatic that this team knows how to put a points here.
I mean, it was basically like a with do.
They actually even put up any points in that first half against the Chargers game.
They had a pretty, you know, significant.
Come back, you know, late.
And they want to kind of get it over time.
And you kind of see what they were able to do from, um, I guess, Ah, Baltimore perspective here.
So if I'm kind of like taking a look at possible picks something that I would actually lock in on as kind of in my top picks for the, uh you know, Chiefs New England game here one.
Um, look, kids, this is gonna put a points.
Eso I know that the number kind of seems pretty high, But when considering that there's fans in that building, they play well at home here.
Um, I just can't see how you could go against Kansas City on any type of on the environment.
So I'm gonna put it on my number.
Let's call it the number eight pick care Kansas City over 30 30.
And then if I'm kind of like taking with the game here, thinking that Kansas City is gonna be putting a points on guy, actually, regardless of how well the England kind of players on defense, they're going to score points.
So I kind of feel that New England in an effort to keep up with them here, they're gonna be going towards towards the air attack a little bit more than they're accustomed to or comfortable with.
And when you're taking a look a Cam Newton's numbers, they to me, it looks like I understand that he's a running quarterback and things like that here.
But I would come and take a shot clock in at Cam Newton over 18.
5 completions and Cam Newton over 175 us past because I'm kind of playing that role that New England is going to be behind.
They're going to need to continue to put points on the board, just enough to keep pace with Kansas City.
So I would play up.
You know, those angles If, uh if I'm competing in this time? Yeah, now, some of you may be asking, you know Oh, why is that number so low? That's automatic luck.
Now, obviously, if you look at the last few games, he has been throwing around the 175 yard mark.
But again, this is the Chiefs where Yeah, you know where you know you're the look.
Let's look, submit.
The Chiefs are gonna be scoring a lot, so the Patriots gonna have to throw.
And that's why you know the 175 yards is a good luck for this game as well as Rex Brooke had.
Like Grant said, because James whites back, let's see James White wasn't even back.
It's kind of hard, you know.
Michelle had over 100 yards last game book had I did have over the amount, um, that we think he's gonna have lower than But Anyway, that's that.
Now I want to do a quick Lakers heat game to preview.
Um, I meet them and it and it's tough.
It's really tough.
But look, And this is why it's so good.
Right? This door sports talk show I want to talk about, you know, my picks.
But this also has to do with, you know, breaking down the game.
Right, because these stats right over under, you know, sort of amount of points relates to your prediction in the game.
So I did not join this contest yet, but guess what? Joining me now? What time? What time is that? Game starting way.
Gotta be getting pretty close, right? No, not till nine o'clock on.
So we got we got some time.
Good I thought it was like like, 8.
15 but, uh, yeah, so for this one, I'm looking at it right now as I go.
But now this is tough, right? We don't know.
The Lakers I know are better than the heat.
That doesn't mean that he can't win.
Because we know this and Sam's the Celtics and Grant probably is.
I told them the Celtics are better than the Heat.
But why did I think that he would win? Because they execute better.
So that could be the same thing again you take them to Yeah, because the team Yeah, but bam on a bio is out today.
Um, tonight I should say, and so is gone, Dragic.
So if we look at the points um, LeBron James over 35.
5 points, I wouldn't pick this.
I'll be honest with you guys.
I think this Lakers game may kind of be a blowout, so I wouldn't pick that, but something I would pick is Jimmy Butler over 25.
I mean, he's gonna have to get over 25.
Last game, which was Game one before he got injured, he was on pace to get at least 40 points he finished the night with, I think around 25 points.
But he had about 19 in the first half.
So based on that pace, I think he was He was gonna get 40 points, but he got injured.
So in this game, I think that's my number one lakh.
Whether this is a blowout or not, everybody is gonna have to shoot the ball, right? No, bam. No Dragic.
Two starters on the heat.
I would pick that over 25.
5 points, and I'm gonna go with another heat player to get over a certain amount of points.
Tyler, Hero over 19.5 points.
He is gonna have to shoot as well.
I mean, butler and hero, they're gonna have to shoot toe win.
I mean, what is he gonna dio? They can't rely on Kelly Olynyk coming from the bench.
Go on drug Jamison Crowder.
At least our Jae crowder.
Yeah, but we with Jae Crowder.
He focuses on defense.
A lot of a lot of times he's left open and he just shoots open threes, but, uh, that happens a lot.
But anyway, title you butler.
I think I'm gonna are going to be the top two leading scorers for the heat here over 19.
5 and butler over.
What do we say? 25.5.
So that's my locks.
And those are the points and then from the three point line.
Um, the Lakers were amazing from the three point line.
Sam, What did you think? Uh, Grant, actually this because I know Sam.
You were watching the You're commentating the Padres game.
I believe E one.
Okay, you did so we'll go to you first.
Then we'll go to Grant.
So, Sam, the Lakers were tremendous from behind the three point line in game one, and they definitely got over 13.
Could that change in this game, or do you still have them getting over that more? I would lean towards them getting over getting the over again, because, I mean, I don't know that this Lakers team, they're here, they're here on a mission, and they made that very clear in game one that I mean, they won't.
There's no way they'll be that good from beyond the arc in particular this game.
I mean, they were like 11 for 17 from three at the half, and they even really slowed down that much in the second half either.
So I'm not saying they'll have, like, that extraordinary of a three point shooting game again.
But I honestly, I honestly think the L A Lakers, you know, are well aware that they don't want, especially without a bio, out for the heat along with Drug.
It's the Lakers don't wanna.
I don't wanna let Miami back into the Siris in any way whatsoever, and they will know how, how important it is to take a 20 Siri's lead.
And I think LeBron James and Anthony Davis, obviously they lead the way for the Lakers.
I think they're locked in, and the rest of this team is Aziz.
Well, the Lakers just look dangerous to me and on offense, when they're when they're clicking, they're they're they're almost unstoppable and they've got so many good shooters as well.
And so I see them having a big shooting shooting night again.
I really dio so I'd lean over on that one, right? Okay, great.
Now, Grant, let me ask you when you take the over for the Lakers, winning by over £9.5.
I said This could be a blow up me personally.
I want to eat the one.
So of course I want to pick that, so I want to pick that.
But let me not be biased.
And let's let me think what you guys would think.
And even though this may be a blowout in the MBA, it's so close.
5 points is actually a lot in MBA games.
So now my question is not, you know.
Would this be your 10 point statement? It's just what you picked over doesn't have to be, you know, Ted points.
But will you pick it? Yeah, like, I don't know, necessarily being my 10 point either.
But it's still probably putting, you know, around three or four.
I mean, I certainly would, especially with bam on buying, you know, pretty much the best defensive player you know.
He's out and just simply you know, Dragic as well.
I just don't see how the heat are, you know, really gonna be, You know that close.
I think it's going to be pretty confirmed.
I'd say pretty much late.
Third quarter of the Lakers gonna win this game.
Unfortunately, I won't be shocked.
The Lakers win this one by 20 like 100 and 10 to 90.
I wouldn't be shocked at all.
It just seems like the Lakers.
They're just that good.
You know, in the three point line, the great, you know, scoring baskets and the pain and just the heat.
I just simply don't know what they could do with two of their three best players out.
You know, you're gonna have to lie.
Ah, lot on Jimmy Butler, like you're mentioning Isaac.
And just simply put, I just don't know if he Jae Crowder and Tyler here.
I really just don't know if those three can really, you know, get the job done against a very great Lakers team.
So we'll see what happens, but yeah, probably say, you know that that would be like my 10.
Probably somewhere like my three or four pick.
You know, you might as well do the heat injuries.
You might as well just make it one.
Now, Mark, I know you have to go soon.
Now let's move away from the Lakers and heat.
Anything toe look up to.
Maybe just I know if you guys are watching this show, you're getting some special insight, right? What are the lots of truth? So you are getting some special insight.
Maybe give them some special insight on some contest that are coming up.
That may be or not up yet, but some contest that maybe we should look forward Thio.
So when they pop up and when they happen, we can quickly make her statements for them.
Well, I'll just you know, I'd be remiss if I didn't do it here.
I gotta chime in on on game two for the MBA tonight.
I'm kind of like a in your camp kind of Isaac here.
Um, to start, I don't see this being a long serious.
I think the Lakers are just whatever.
Whatever you wanna call a team of destiny or just that much better than Miami.
But I do feel that Miami puts up a fight tonight.
I kind of got to feel that, you know, they'll play extremely hard tonight here, and they'll probably play, you know, hard enough.
And where they just kind of lose by, ah couple of points or something like that here.
So I'm locking in where I would key in on Jimmy Butler.
Pretty much like an all day, I would go Jimmy Butler over 25 a half points.
I would also kind of like to take a look at, you know, some strong defensive play from the heat.
Kinda like being some aggressive here.
So I would take a little bit of flyer on the over 5.
5 steals and over 6.
5 rebounds and, you know, play the LeBron and Anthony Davis and all the others.
Anyway, that's kind of my two cents from from MBA is kind of like a final perspective in terms of what's coming back up on statement games.
It's it's really kind of like just a strange time of year and just with everything is kind of going on with, you know, the political elections and Corona and all that stuff over here.
So, obviously you just had the conclusion of the Stanley Cup? Um, probably by like, you know, next week you'll be coming to the tail end of the N B.
A season from a hockey and basketball perspective.
It doesn't look like those seasons will be starting again until at a minimum, you know, Beginning of what, Mirdjalal? I'm sorry. January.
So we got some some time with that here.
Um, soon enough towards the end of this month, here will be at the conclusion of a baseball.
So getting toe, what's coming up on statement games.
You can kind of expect a lot of football.
And that's gonna include college football.
Once we kind of have an understanding off.
You know who's playing.
And we have some data that we can actually come up with some realistic competitive lines.
Uh, you know, the quarterback position from an L S u R Alabama perspective, You have the big 10 kind of starting up here.
So, towards the tail end of October, beginning phases in November, literally.
It's just gonna be a lot of football on statement games.
In addition to that here, I'm kind of looking forward to that.
That Let's see here what we got coming up here, We've got the boxing match we got, We got Tyson welder and and Fury coming up here.
So some specialty, you know, pay per view, whether It's from a mixed martial arts perspective or a basketball perspective.
You could expect those types of games to be available for play on standing games.

You know, I'll do a couple of games that the Dodgers Bruce game the other night, and they also signed up for the Eagles 40 Niners game.
But yeah, no, I mean, so far, it's a great website.
I I really enjoy, you know, going on in here and there.
And it's, uh, definitely a lot of fun, you know, like guys the same good way that, you know, eventually get a gift Carter to.
And it's overall very fun, especially if you know you want to give it a shot like Marcus saying it's for free.
There's really no lose here outside, you know, just trying to win, you know, gift card, too, and, you know, express your sports knowledge.
That's pretty much all it is.
I find myself having a lot of fun doing them.
So, you know, def definitely give it a shot.
I definitely would recommend that Sam back from you.
I mean, as Grant said, you know, it's free, so there's nothing to lose.
And, uh, yeah, it's It's a very, very unique game to where you know, you get Thio, you get Thio play, you know, you get to pick what? What? Your big statements are on different games in a very interesting way.
And, uh, yeah, if you like sports and you know a lot about sports and you think you're good at predicting, you know, different stats in upcoming games, then why not take a shot at doing it and having some fun and maybe and maybe winning on the on the on the way to So yeah, absolutely.
Um, I'm, uh I'll see how I do on the Patriots Chiefs contest.
So my my first statement games so we'll see how it goes.
And, uh, yeah, so absolutely, um, we're glad toe have mark on.
And, uh, we appreciate him joining our stream, and we're I didn't know Isaac's been enjoying statement games for a while now.
and grants already, uh, into it, and I'm getting into it as well.
So absolutely it was Ah, blast having mark on Ah.
So before we ran the show, we want to get to a few sports topics just to get to them, right? We don't wanna wait till next show because then these new stories will get old and you guys will find articles of them online, and you guys won't find any new information from us.
So let's get some new information, Doc Rivers to Philly.
Look, he said he wasn't going back to the Clippers.
It's not a firing.
And I don't want you guys to say they fired him.
No, they just didn't reach agreements.
Right, Right, That's what happened. No firing.
So don't get wrong on that.
But since then resigned with L.
He was like I should saw, like I should say, a coaching free agent and he was the best coach available.
Billy Donovan's available? Yeah, if we even want to name the 70 Sixers coach, we could.
But he's not a top coaching candidate avail.
But, but anyway, the 70 Sixers got the best coach available.
Ah, guy who's made the playoffs many times.
A guy who's bring the Clippers for this year, right? The second seed.
And look yes, it's quad Leonard.
Yes, it's Paul George, but he's a big reason, right? Doc Rivers is a good coach and look, 07 Celtics.
Yeah, but he's been in the playoffs many times rather than you.
Um, look, they got the best coaching candidate available, and we'll see.
You know what that happens.
You know, I know Ben Simmons was just I know there's a few rumors actually out today that the 70 Sixers are interested in trading Ben Simmons to the temples for the first pick in the draft.
So there's some rumors on that.
But anyway, Doc Rivers, talented coach for Star Wars.
Sam, what do you think about this son? Yeah, I I think it was a very smart move by the Philadelphia 76 years.
I love Doc Rivers.
When he was in Boston, I wish he was the coach of the Celtics Right now.
I think he's a lot better than Brad Stevens.
That that's for sure, But but yeah, I think it was a very smart move by the six years I mean, once you can't available.
The six years even said, you know, they were debating whether to hire Mike D'Antoni, Tyronn Lue.
But then, once Rivers became available, they snatched him right away before any team could even think twice about possibly hiring him.
So clearly, the opportunity was was there for Philadelphia, and they took advantage of it immediately.
And I don't really blame them because Doc Rivers has is a winning coach.
You know, it's unfortunate what what happened with the Clippers? Um, because obviously, you know he was coaching there, and the Clippers brought star players like Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to L.
A in order to win championships.
So obviously, is a very disappointing season, Uh, for Doc Rivers and his team in L.
But now he gets to move on from them.
Start a new chapter in his career with the 70 Sixers, And I'm just interested to see you know how how he does with them, because that that's 70 Sixers team is just they're so out of sorts right now, and they've got to get that locker room back intact.
And I mean, I feel like Doc Rivers is a guy that's definitely capable of doing that we know is coaching capabilities.
But he also needs to get everyone back on the same page, get a winning mindset into these guys.
So I'm really intrigued to see how his first season goes with Philadelphia, because that's, you know, you think going to the 70 Sixers, you know you would autumn as a coach like Doc Rivers.
You'd automatically be, you know, in contention for winning titles.
But that's not the case here, because Philadelphia are just so far off from getting anywhere near the N B A Finals.
Right now, I feel like but maybe Doc Rivers is the change, Um, that that will really help them.
And I think it's much needed as well for the 76 years.
But it's not like this is, you know Doc Rivers is walking into a dream job here.
It's gonna take a lot of work for sure, but I think he's up to the challenge and we'll see how it goes.
But it will definitely be intriguing and I think it's a very, very intelligent and good higher by the 70 Sixers on their part and Grant, what do you think? 76 was droll on bead.
Look, he's not the best center right now.
Then you could go, Rudy, go bare, Bam! Out of bio and they need to show more.
And look, you got rid of Jimmy Butler.
You still have Ben Simmons, who's gonna compete with you for the, you know, the best player on the 70 Sixers.
But he needs to show up.
And you think Doc Rivers could provide this show up energy and look not say, bring the 76 or to the playoffs.
I think they could do that because they've done it the last few seasons, but they need to make it way for them in the playoffs past the first round.
Yeah, that's the thing with this.
I think this was smart.
70 Sixers Hiring Doc Forever is absolutely his hands down.
The best coach available you pretty much It was pretty much gifted to you on a silver platter because I was blown away when the Clipper inspired him.
I mean, it could have maybe seen expecting, you know, them blowing a 31 lead to Denver.
But even then I felt like they were gonna get Doctor was released in about the year two.
But you know, Clippers meant business, and, you know, they just didn't negotiate a new deal.
And, you know, a couple of days later, he's what, the 70 Sixers and again, just very smart move is the thing.
Just like what? Sam and I have been saying.
The 70 Sixers are good enough team.
They're gonna make the playoffs next year.
The thing is, how far they're gonna make it personally.
May I don't think 70 Sixers could be.
You know, teams like the Heat, the Celtics, the Bucks, the rafters.
It's like I just think, you know, 70 Sixers.
And they might even somehow loose to like the Pacers or someone like their like their level.
I just don't really know the Nets.
Another team of Durant in Kyrie Irving say, healthy.
It's just the Eastern Conference is looking so stacked over the next couple of years.
The 70 Sixers, I think, our at best, making it to the second round.
You know, it's just they got the coach, they got the players.
I just don't think they're going to really, you know, be able to compete with the rest of the Eastern Conference.
Really, if that makes sense.
That's why smart move doctors.
He ain't going nowhere for at least another three years.
Overall, I don't see much success here.
My Philadelphia now to wrap up the show week for a preview of the NFL.
I'm just gonna go over the game schedule.
And then Grant and Sam could pick what games they want. A preview.
Saints Lions, one o'clock, Chargers, Buccaneers one.
Jaguars Bangles one Vikings, Texans one.
Seahawks Dolphins one.
Hear me out, Dolphins What went? But they will cover the spread.
If you are betting on this, which I can, I'm obviously too young.
But if you're betting on this, the Dolphins will cover the spread.
Believe me, fits Magic will pass the ball Kosecki, Devante Parker or catch the ball.
So I see actual win.
But by less than two touchdowns, I think, Look, let's be realistic.
Russell Wilson, right now is playing as the best Cuban in the NFL, right? Definitely.
The ox are winning with a terrible defense.
Yes, Jamal items is not playing good.
Bobby Wagner is not playing good.
The Sox right now have allowed the top five most yards, two receivers, so that's going to tell you and I'll preview this so I'm not gonna do now.
It's gonna tell you something about someone that's gonna break out anyway.
Grounds Cowboys one.
Cornell's Panthers one Coats Bears one Ravens Washington Football team at one.
Then the four o'clock games. Giants Rams.
Four or five Patriots Chiefs for 25.
Sam Will will preview that.
We know that Bills Raiders for 25 egos.
40 Niners, 8 20.
That's a Sunday Night football game and Monday night Falcons Packer.
So I just want to quickly start off as I touched on it.
We know Russell Wilson is gonna finish the season going for the most touchdown.
I think you will win. M v P.
We guys touched on that last time right now.
You probably won M v P, but nothing is going to slow them down, especially the Dolphins.
So what are the Dolphins gonna do? They're gonna have to pass it from the start something and as great knows, they actually did in the Jaguars game.
They actually passed it from the start.
But then Myles Gaskin got rolling, so they started out passing, but they went back to the running game, but Devante Parker should have ah, 100 plus yard game.
Easily fits patches.
Gonna have toe throw the ball now fits magic.
We'll have magic in terms off looking.
Impressive, right? We know the Dolphins won't beat the Seahawks.
They are probably gonna make the Super Bowl.
I thought the Saints would, but they're just going downhill.
So you have the M v P.
Russell Wilson and the Sox were so impressive with Guess what? And this is what I'm gonna say.
A defense that has allowed top five most yards, two receivers and tight ends.
Go Zeki Devante Parker and Myles Gaskin from the backfield should have a good game.
If they have a good game receiving.
Well, that means fits.
Magic's gonna have received Grant.
I wanna just quickly ask you about the Dolphins.
We know the Sox are gonna win, but in terms of the Dolphins, do you think they could still impressed people? Even though they lose? Because it's magic.
It's just gonna be throwing all game.
And he actually is top 10 right now.
Yeah, I was like, six.
Patrick, you know, a song is you know, he really becomes fits magic and, you know, doesn't you know, throw any bonehead interception judges or just, you know, make any careless mistakes? Dolphins could easily get the Seahawks a run for their money.
I would be shocked at all if this was a close game.
You know that's involved.
Devante Parker get Preston Williams might get sticky.
These guys involved, I wouldn't rely on Myles Gaskin personally.
Me, I'd be using that Brita and Jordan Howard.
But Myles Gaskin has been decent, but again, I mainly focused on two main backs.
Their defense, Byron Jones, might be coming back so they might be able to slow down Wilson a little bit.
I don't know what the deals with examine Howard, but at least you know Byron Jones might be coming back at least.
And, you know, pretty good linebacking chorus.
Well, I think they're on.
Baker is gonna have a ton of tackles.
It's gonna be a good game.
Relying a lot of points by Jason Sanders.
I will say that I do think Dolphins will get into the red zone quite a bit.
They won't necessarily score touchdowns, though I do think most of those attempts will go in the field goals.
But I would be shocked if this is, you know, 12 possession game.
Not all. You know.
If Miami just plays care, you know, they just play good football.
They'll be fine.
They might probably not, but just by the slim bit they might be able to park the upset.
I doubt it, But so before we go to Sam for the Patriots Chiefs preview a good game.
Um, my last thing.
I don't agree with you on Myles Gaskin.
Brian Florida's going with Who's Hot? Hey, red Hot and gun.
I know you saw because you were watching that Jaguars game.
He ran the ball tons, and he was actually pretty effective.
Now Jordan Howard.
He may finished top 10 touchdowns.
He's has more touchdowns than the man of games the Dolphins have played so far.
I mean, uh, it's been really impressive with joining now what has done, but I don't agree with that just because Gaskin has been so hot.
You know what I'm saying, right? Well, I mean, definitely.
Like I said, my gas has been pressing.
I'm just saying her team against Seattle, I would I would choose your to running back you know, played against them more often stuff.
But, you know, gas has been good.
Now, that is a good point right there, because Matt Breeder was on the 40.
Now I know what you are in the NFC West with the C X, but then I have a point that's gonna favor of Gaskin.
I don't kill who the matchup is.
You're playing Gaskin.
But why you play Gaskin even more is because he's a passing back.
And like we said, the dog would need a pass.
And who said you could pass the running back? First down, first down.
First down, right? It's gonna Sam Patriots.
Boy, is that a good day? I wish it was a night game.
Here's the thing.
Can Burden is gonna have to start passing something he hasn't done the last few games now against the Seahawks.
He that was the game.
He passed the most right, and the Seahawks are high.
Offensive team will saw the Chiefs, So give a little preview of this good game coming up on Sunday.
Yeah, I'm just really looking forward to this one.
You know, even if I wasn't a Patriots fan, even if you're a neutral fan.
You're probably looking looking forward to just watching this game because, you know, over the last couple of years, anytime the Patriots and Chiefs have met most recently two years ago in the A F C championship game, which New England? Of course, we'd win in overtime in an epic thriller at Arrowhead, where tomorrow's game will be, Um, every time they meet, it just seems to be one heck of a game.
And usually they're two of the teams at the top of the A F C.
And now it's obviously a different look.
New England team with Cam Newton as the quarterback, Um, but yeah, through through three games so far, you know, the Patriots have, I think, impressed quite a bit.
You know, it Z, you know, disappointing that they didn't They didn't beat Seattle looking at the way that that game came to an end.
So New England could easily be three.
No, this time they you know, it wasn't impressive performance against Vegas last week, but Vegas just made mistakes and the Patriots took advantage and it was kind of a walk in the park at the end of the day, and they they won quite comfortably, even though Cam Newton was, well, subpar in that one.
Um, but but, yeah, obviously, with Kansas City, it's a whole different animal that the Patriots are going up against.
I think the Chiefs are the best team in the National Football League right now.
We see what they did on Monday night against Baltimore.
I will say this, though, maybe where the Patriots could take advantages.
I mean, I don't think it's that big of a deal that Kansas City played Monday in.
The Patriots have one more day rest, but I will say I feel like that.
That Chiefs Ravens matchup was the game Kansas City were ready for and really looking forward to as a huge matchup.
And then the very next week.
Now they have New England, and maybe they put a lot of energy into that win against the Ravens, and perhaps for some reason, they're not 100% on their game or that they come in with a bit too much confidence, which I would doubt they do.
But it's still a possibility because they are riding on high right now.
After beating the Baltimore Ravens, who are arguably the next best team in the A F. C.
So perhaps, you know the Patriots could catch them off guard in that way.
So I think the first quarter of the game will be big for for New England.
If if they could get off to a quick start.
You know, Bill, it will be interesting to see who wins the coin toss.
First of all, because Bill Belichick usually likes to defer.
And so if the Patriots do when the coin toss and they differ, if their defense could make a stop on the first drive, that could set the tone for the rest of the game.
Because there's not a lot of ways you can really slow down.
This Kansas City defense and New England secondary, by the way, is the highest page secondary in the National Football League.
So basically those guys they're getting paid four games like these.
So New England's defense in the secondary in particular, they they've got to show up in this game, and so and they're they're gonna be up against the big test.
But they're being paid to stop teams like Kansas City, and so we'll see if they're up to that test.
But, yeah, in a scenario where Kansas City start with the ball on, if the Patriots make a stop on the first drive, that could really set the tone and then New England football second half.
So at the end of the first half, that will be huge as well, depending on what the scoreline as you'd expect it to still be, Ah, one possession game at that point.
And how many times do you see games, you know, turn around based on how the first half ends in the second half begins? If the Patriots could maybe get a touchdown at the very end of the first half, and then they get the ball in the second and go down and get another score to begin the third, that could give them some huge momentum.
So it's the start of the game, the end of the half and the start of the third quarter in particular.
That would be huge for the Patriots to try to take advantage of, because the reality is you can't you can't really afford to fall behind this Kansas City team, and, you know, the Patriots fell behind the Seahawks nearly came back, which is incredible.
But this Chiefs team is just very difficult to to come back on.
And so the beginning and the start of this game is going to be crucial.
The Patriots will need to keep it a one score game throughout, and a big problem is you can't have trust in your kicker Nick folk, either.
So that makes the situation even even more difficult.
You know, Cam Newton is gonna have to play even better and and going back to what we were saying earlier.
Um, with with the with the statement games and the picks for the Patriots Chiefs, I believe it was, um, Mark that touched on Cam Newton throwing over 175 and a half passing yards.
And I think he will, because that's how the game is gonna have to play out.
I mean, Cam Newton will need Thio if the Patriots want to have a chance of winning.
And so, and who knows what what Patrick Mahomes gonna do because he's magical game in game out.
So So, yeah, it should definitely be a new, interesting matchup.
I think I think the Chiefs win id, say, 31 to 21.
But but New England, If they keep it close to the tail end, anything can happen.
But if the Patriots, when it's gonna be a nail biter to the very you know Final Drive, I feel like but it is possible.
It is possible based on how this team has played.
And maybe Kansas City hit a little bump in the road and the Patriots take advantage and Cam Newton has a great game, so that's always a possibility as well.
Ah, 100% agree with you.
And next week next show we'll talk about Julio Jones and the rumors if he should go to the Patriots.
I don't wanna talk about that this week cause I want to see what happens in this game.
Edelman's coming off a bad week.
He should bounce back again.
It's a heavy past game, so that's why we can't really just like, Look, I mean, we know that Julio Jones would fit in, but I just want to see what happens this week and anyway, we want to wrap up the show so we'll do that next week.
Any game you want to talk, definitely Alright, I could be like guys, you could say I talk about my team, but I gotta be honest with you.
I don't know how many of you really want, you know, in in depth, you know, preview with the Jaguars and the Bangles.
Alright, so I'll spare you.
I'm gonna go over a very intriguing matchup.
Instead, I'm gonna review the Colts and the Bears.
This game is going to be very interesting, of course.
Nick Boles replaced Mitral Travis Key midway through last week's game against Atlanta and shockingly, Atlanta Blue another lead.
And Nick Boles came back and won that game.
But let's take a look at the cult's now.
They are on a two game hot streak.
I know they beat the Jets last week, but still two pick sixes is still pretty impressive.
Shut down Minnesota in week two after, you know, pretty sluggish start against the Jaguars in week one.
So I think this game is going to be first off.
Very defensive, of course. Got Cleo.
Mac Will con Smyth of the Bears.
Obviously, Jarious Leonard, you know, for the Colts is gonna be a very defensive team.
I'm expecting I would be shocked to both quarterbacks over two interceptions.
I know Philip Rivers.
He's been careless with the football over the past couple of years.
You still might be adjusting to the playbook.
He might make a mistake or two.
You know, we'll see what happens there.
I do think. Eggs. Abyan Hauer.
Excuse me, Alex Howard.
Xavier Rhodes is having a bounce back here, coming over from the Vikings to the Colts.
I think he was one of the two.
Culture got picked six last week, but overall, it's going to be a very defensive game.
I can really see the final score this game.
Being you know, 16 13 is gonna be a close game.
And ultimately I'm gonna have to give it to the Bears just because.
And I know I'm pretty sure it's in Chicago, too, and that's kind of why.
But the other reason is, you know Philip Rivers.
He usually struggles in situations like this.
Philip Rivers always struggle against team about 500 I know a lot of people are calling the Bears frauds and I am expecting Chicago to slow down eventually in the next couple of weeks like I think they're facing the ****ing years.
I think they're gonna lose that game.
That's besides the point.
Um, it's just Philip Rivers usually struggles in very tight contests like this, especially if Indianapolis has the ball like a minute left down.
You care if they have all three timeouts and I don't? Frank writes.
Good Coach, you know T y Hilton.
The Jack Doyle might be healthy.
Jonathan Taylor might have a good game, but it's just you cannot put the game on Philip Rivers.
Shoulder is just simply for time and time again.
This, like in week one against Jacksonville if the Bears stay ahead in the final five minutes.
I'm very confident in the Chicago especially, especially freaking defense, right? Yeah, the offensively Allen Robinson should do good.
They've been using him.
He's having a bounce back year.
Um, you know, no Tyree Cohen.
I think David Montgomery might still be out, but I just heard today they picked up Lamar Miller so you might be seeing him.
Maybe not this week and next week.
I mean, that's certainly interesting, right? And overall, I feel like the Bears, they're gonna be mainly relying on the past game And if they really, you know, folks can able, you know, if he's able throw over 250 yards against the Colts, think the base of a good shot wing.
This game and defense is shut down.
I see Chicago victory, but the Colts could certainly win as well.
Of course, past three.
No cults, too, And one should be a good game Sunday afternoon.
That's a great preview.
That may be one of the only Bears games I watched the season.
All right, let's be realistic.
When he came in, he was looking like the Super Bowl Nick Foles, that Sam obviously don't know.
I mean, maybe even better the way he was passing.
Let's be realistic.
I I I didn't know, you know, really what the best decision was.
And I said, Yes, you're gonna start Mitra Biscuit Week one.
And I bet you he will be taken out one of the week's guess what it happened yet.
It happens way less than half the halfway point of the season.
Anyway, Great preview grin and Sam, Nick foes is definitely gonna be interesting to watch.
I'm interested in seeing my own God Fitzpatrick just to see what he could dio.
I mean, again, the Seahawks defense is supposed to be good.
I remember Grant.
I asked you who's the best defense, and you actually brought up the Seahawks as one of the top defense is not the case.
Uh, not the case at all.
And I would have still said top even without J D and Clowney.
But somehow I don't know what's happening.
Jamal Adams, by the way, isn't active.
But hey, was active these last few weeks.
What's the excuse? You know? Yeah, He was still struggling pretty bad.
I mean, saying, Oh, you don't know the playbook and stuff.
I mean, that little train away to first round picks for you.
Like you gotta perform, man.
We'll see if tomorrow and we'll come back.
I think you can have a few bounced back games once he fully recovers from this injury.
But well, right now, yeah, I haven't disappointed him for sure.
All right, great.
