We need a neat little logo like that on the side, like on the loading thing.
Gr like spend logo will be cool.
I don't know how to do that, E.
I think we can figure it out.
Hey, everybody, we're here again.
It's midday. It's Week four.
I'm Jeff Di Matteo.
That's Ronnie Evans.
We're gonna give it a couple minutes. Here.
Let's, um, folks log in.
We're gonna talk a little bit about our morning picks and what we've seen so far, some of what's going on later today and what you can expect on Monday night show.
Yep, it's an interesting day.
So far, all the games were actually really good.
Yeah, surprised with that? There's a couple stinkers.
I mean, the Ravens did did what we expected with them, but I expected one more point out of that theme.
Though that game was ridiculous.
Seattle stumbled their way into a decent win, actually, when it was all said and done, but that was a pretty scary game for them.
But it really got another way.
Numbers wise when you look at the score, you like they did their business, but yeah, it was outside of the last five minutes.
It was not a pretty game.
Why don't we go game by game? Let's take a look at.
Um all right, so we'll start off Saints Lions.
Um, with that game you have picked, actually, Detroit to win that game.
Well, they were up 14. Nothing.
And then they started feeling themselves a little bit.
And the saints that went five straight possessions with a touchdown? Yep.
Hard to do anything against that album camera could have had a monster.
David got bolstered a few times by Latavius.
Murray, Uh, appreciate that trick on Smith with a couple of studies, which was interesting to see.
We saw Jason Huntley getting some work at running back, which is not really super relevant for fantasy, but he's a guy I loved coming into the draft.
Um, just for his athletic profile.
But the Andres what finally did something, which was He caught a face mask.
Funny like that. I was fantastic.
I mean, good for that guy.
Um, but with that game, I don't know what we're take away from it.
You know, I really wanted more out of Matt Stafford against a depleted Saints defense, and I didn't see it.
And that, really, that concerns me.
When I think about the future of this franchise and I look ahead, I'm saying Okay, well, it's Matt Patricia.
The answer is Matt Stafford.
You know, you went out and spent much of draft capital on guys like, you know, DeAndre Swift.
Johnson is in like the Robocop, you know, style legs here.
Like he's a mess.
You don't know what you have.
It's a bunch of cobbled together parts that really aren't there.
Not greater than any.
Some will tell you that there it might be one of those situations where if they can't figure it out in the next couple weeks, Patricia is gonna be on as hot of a seat.
Is a guy like Adam gays? I think it should be. I don't think it's a good coach.
I've kind of seen that from them already.
And I know that NFL teams are typically a lot more patient.
Then I would be, but fan mindset in the employment world that I have worked in my whole life.
When you're bad at your job, you get fired on the's.
Guys get a lot of chances, but, yeah, I I was disappointed with just overall.
The Lions as an offense wasn't really what I wanted to see.
But other than that, I think that the Saints, like, finally bounced back without Michael Thomas, which was good to see.
They're gonna get him back, probably next week, the week after.
And if you're in a fantasy that we have trick Juan Smith.
By the way, E would sell on the idea that he's led the team in routes run.
He's out there leading the team and snaps, and now he goes ahead and puts up a pretty decent game today with a couple of touchdowns.
You might just sell the total fantasy points, and he's not gonna do anything once Michael Thomas back.
So it's probably worth while you know, turn and burn on him, collect some draft picks or maybe a useful player for you.
Yeah, yeah, for sure.
Next game was the Chargers and the Buccaneers.
We have taken the under on that game and they went over both of these games for over 60 points.
And so I think rule of thumb is unless you're sure of it.
Take the overs right now.
If you're betting they're just everyone's scoring points, it's ridiculous.
This game was supposed to a little bit of a weather factor to it now, early in the day, it was raining in Tampa down there.
And so for game time, I'm supposed to become a sloppy field.
The rain dried up by kickoff.
There it was, no rain.
Yeah, and so we had a dry field.
It was a regular, you know, late summer, early fall day.
And I think that played really well for Mike Evans, Tom Brady and the whole offense.
Well, and it was like a low scoring game until the last 25 minutes.
And then Tom Brady decided to do his thing and he threw for five touchdowns and came out of nowhere.
We were watching the game, and in the first half it was like, Man, I mean this Tom Brady really kind of like his the age starting to catch up to him.
And then he decides the recoup at halftime and blows up.
But with that game, I after watching it, I mean Justin Herberts, the real deal, you can't.
You can't go back to Tyrod after this.
The whole offense looks better.
From a fantasy perspective.
I hope they don't go back to tie abroad because Herberts making people relevant again, which is nice.
But Keenan's relevant EC lor I mean, he got hurt.
Obviously, it looks like a hamstring, and with being a hamstring like, it's probably a couple of weeks, but we'll get him back.
You know that off that whole back, that might be a little sketchy.
I don't know if I'm gonna jump in tow.
It's not gonna be.
Kelly is an Army one, you know, But it will be him and Jackson.
They might even signed somebody.
But you know, Hunter Henry's worth something now.
He's just plainly better.
He's passing for a really high percentage.
He was like 11 for 15 or something today.
Herbert 2020 2025.
I'm sorry, but like third quarter 11 15 but you're talking about I was 75% passer.
You don't take that off the field when he's a rookie making his what third career start right? He has looked fantastic.
You can't take him off the field.
I like him quite a bit.
Uh, I think the thing that shocked me was Josh Kelley did nothing despite Echo getting injured, But I don't I'm not too worried about that.
Kelly's looked like the real deal so far. He'll be fine.
He's not gonna be a heavy workload guy anyway, typically weak, weak.
But he'll get those weeks like he didn't Week two with 21 carries.
And things like that just depends on game script on, and I think that, you know, in the end, Herbert himself is doing a great job of spreading out the offense.
And if you have a running back and you want a lot of touches to that running back, it's often better actually to have a quarterback like Tyrod that is very conservative and doesn't really do a lot with the ball spreading it around.
And so we'll see what that hopefully, equities Alright, effect color is missing next week, though, obviously, throw in Joshua Kelly.
If you're not on somebody's roster in your league, you're playing in a league that needs to pay more attention.
Hey, should have been robbed a week, but yeah, I would go pick him up for sure.
Next is Jaguars Bengals thoughts was an awesome game.
Um, this wine we took the over on it went way over took Cincinnati to cover as well.
So hit on everything there.
And then also, Joe Mixon is back, Baby Joe mixing way.
Talk about Joe mixing.
You know, when you take Joe Mixon or my Davis, I was like, give me Nixon because I want always side of the talent, You know, the talents there.
And Mike Davis actually forgot to bring him up in the understand, but yeah, he looked really good, but he didn't look, mixing good mixing was making things happen.
They called a great game for him.
He only needs a little bit of daylight.
You know, if he gets a sliver of daylight, it's game over.
And he showed that today with some broken tackles, couple catches out of the backfield.
They used him in play action where he was actually the outlet.
And when that happened, he was wide open.
And then they turn it into a long plays every time.
So you gotta love jumping right now.
Uh, burrow looks, I mean, is greatest.
Herbert is right now.
Borough is like borough is the truth.
Hey is really, really good.
And he has looked incredible his first three games.
He just first rookie ever to have 300 yards in three straight games.
Uh, he's gonna be one of those guys were.
When we update the ratings this week, it's gonna end up being.
He's a locked and loaded Q B one.
And so right now he actually is grading out better than the large Jackson on.
I know some people are gonna be like Wait, what? Jaws on the ground the whole bit.
But Lamar's not throwing the ball very well.
He went under 200 today under 100 last week.
That really hurts.
And I've got Burrow out here going for three bills every week, and he has a litany of weapons.
He should have had an extra touch down today to it, hit Drew sample in the face and bounced in the Miles Jack's hands.
I mean, it should have been a touchdown, not interception, for an even better day with Burrows.
So I love what he's doing there.
I think the offense looks great.
Um, wide receivers kind of all did remotely the same thing with them this week.
but But he's another guy that spreads it around.
So he you know, if you're open, he's gonna find you.
He's gonna get to the Rock, and it's gonna be a good things unless it's a J.
Green putting it on the turf.
And then on the other side, Gardner Minshew look terrible S o. I have been.
So I've at one point I played quarterback.
I've coached quarterbacks, you know, I've been a part of football at every level, short of the NFL, over the duration of my life.
And I can tell you that he doesn't look like an NFL quarterback.
He no longer he's his whole personality is he's Mr Cool, right? He's Mr, you know.
Under control is super savvy.
When he drops back, there's nothing chill about his pace of play.
He's very frenetic.
He's hopping around.
His feet are all over the place.
He doesn't seem to know what it is he's supposed to be doing at the top of his drop.
He needs Thio show up to the game and some dazzling sparkly pants and a seventies outfit again.
Yeah, it's just he needs a swagger.
He needs some George like, you know, if they just let him play in George, he probably fine show up to an interview.
And we're in just a jockstrap.
Yeah, sounds like something that we he would do.
But here's the thing.
If he doesn't get this right and right the ship very quickly, he won't be the quarterback in Jacksonville next year because they'll be bad enough to compete with the Jets.
For that topic, they'll be in a position where maybe it's not Trevor Lawrence.
Maybe it's Trey Lance from North Dakota State.
Idiots For South Dakota State, it's one of the Dakotas.
Trey, Lance, that is a stud quarterback.
One of those super small school.
Anyway, keep an eye on Justin Fields, Ohio State. Have a great quarterback.
You know, they're gonna go quarterback in the first round of he doesn't get it, right? Yeah.
And then James Robinson.
Not a great day on the ground, but, like, not a bad day either.
I mean, he had a huge run that was called back to the holding.
He looks he looks perfectly fine in the part, just like he did the first three weeks.
Just didn't get the full opportunity there.
He and Shark or the best two parts of their offense, and they need both of them to be right.
The chart can't be right unless Minshew calms down a little bit.
Got to get his feet under control.
They've got to stay underneath because if he doesn't his feet right, he's not gonna anything else right.
He missed some really easy, wide open throws, and it's the same kind of stuff we usually talk about, you know, with Josh Allen.
You know, Hey, he's missing a wide open guys missing a wide open guy and then he makes some kind of weird circus play.
Right now, he's not making the circus place.
He's just missing wide open guys.
And that's a problem Well, and his decisiveness and weak one.
He came out and the governments who was in command of the offense, and it's like each week it's either like defense's or throwing something in front of him that's confusing him or he is losing his touch.
So I don't know, maybe he's got the yips.
Maybe it's bad, Maybe is good.
Minshew, though, anyway, moving on.
Um, next thing was the Vikings at the Texans.
How about that Vikings offense? I mean, could grieve feeling Jefferson Cook.
Everybody showed up and everybody falled out.
I sat here on The Early Show and I was like, I don't know about Minnesota.
I don't know if they're gonna hold up their end of the deal because her cousins hasn't looked that good all year.
He's been really up and down.
He's super streaky, but he really showed command.
He really showed the news under control.
High completion percentage.
Getting back to the Kirk cousins that we've seen in the past, Which kind of what we've talked over like that. Yeah, way.
Need that, though.
That's the guy we need.
He needs to be under control, delivering the football on time to the open receiver and not trying to funnel everything to feel.
I'm not trying to funnel everything to Cook.
He's got to spread it around because that's what keeps people open.
Justin Jackson, Another great day, monster day again.
I mean, that offense is clicking and they get to play Seattle next week, and that's gonna be a fantasy bonanza.
We suck defense.
It's gonna be a rough a rough day for defense is if you like a lot of points, it's gonna be Minnesota.
Seattle next week will be taking over that smashing the over right.
It's gonna take all over some mus**** way would be hitting at a 90% rate right now.
We took only over a some point.
Every team in the league is going to stop scoring 30.
Yeah, well, they want that again.
But on the other side of the ball, Texans just like E.
Don't know, is the Shawn Watson who we think he is, or is he really overrated? I don't know, because he's like when you watch him play.
The only the main complaint I have with him is that he's not decides to put the ball, holds it all.
He heals all the way too long.
But uh huh, I don't know if it's that he's not as good as people thought he was, or if this offense is just terribly composed.
I mean, it could be both.
It's I mean, maybe it's a bit of both, but they clearly miss that Alfa receiver.
So here's the question I would pose and this is purely hypothetical.
If you switch to Shawn Watson and Patrick Mahomes.
Can Patrick Mahomes two more than Watson's doing based purely on whom? Holmes's versus? You know, having Watson saying Kansas City's offense? Would Watson be better than my homes if he was in Kansas City's office? No.
Okay, you got E.
It's a crazy question, but I think we've seen Watson because he was my homes before Mahomes when he came into the league and he got, what, 10 games and or something.
He was on an incredible tear, record setting pace for yards and touchdowns, and he wasn't turning the ball over.
He's getting it out quickly.
He's lighting up the league.
He got hurt, He came back and he's been kind of been good, but not great.
We kind of keep waiting for him to balance back and, like, really show out and it just hasn't been there.
There's like an it factor that's missing, and I can't put my finger on it.
Interesting to watch, but Texans air garbage. Right now.
It's hilarious, though, is that they have their own four and the Dolphins have both of their 1st and 2nd round pick next year.
So there's your Miami thing.
There is a strong chance that Miami is gonna have two picks in the top 12.
Yeah, which would be awesome.
Yeah, I mean, I love Bryan Flores is doing Yeah, I mean, he touched a great game against Seattle game in the second year.
Actually, that is the next game.
Seahawks Dolphins in the business.
We call it a segue.
Yeah, uh, that is a game that we took the over on and the first two quarters of the game was like, neither team could figure out how to play offense, which is weird, because neither team has a defense.
Right? Um but I you know, we mentioned before the game that this was a huge trap game for Seattle.
If they do terribly when they travel cross country at one AM games on the East Coast, yada yada, Russell Wilson Or actually, Seattle hasn't won a game in Florida since 2006 s Oh, it was just like all the ingredients were there for a little bit of a come back down to Earth.
But in the end, rusted this thing.
Um, get out the wind.
And Fitzpatrick did his thing and threw some pick at the end that sealed the game, and so, like it didn't blow up the way we thought it was going to.
But Devante Parker, 10 catches 110 yards talking about fantasy hits.
There are pics of the day.
There was Parker.
Yeah, and then D. J.
Moore is a guy that is just kind of like continually expanding David more expanding his role in the Seattle offense.
And he's been a guy that's like been in off of their projected week one line up for the last two years.
Eso He looks good, though.
I mean, he's making some incredibly like high aptitude catches in the end zone.
He had one today where he caught the ball, looked down, push positioned his feet, got him in the corner of the end zone on one play, and so I would have might be worth a locket.
But I think as lock it goes, Seattle's offense goes, it's not so much rust.
They're gonna let Rust cooking do his thing, but when they get locked involved, your you're Seahawk offenses just explosive, and he was non existent for three quarters and then all of a sudden he gets 56 catches or whatever was in the fourth quarter, and you guys start scoring a bunch of points.
I don't think that's an anomaly.
And I don't I don't think that's really a coincidence by any member.
So my hope for you guys for next week against Minnesota's you start figuring out how to get him available in the slot and victimized likings.
Otherwise, you know, you play a game like that against Minnesota, you're gonna lose.
I mean, it'll be an interesting game, but on the other side of the ball there, Bonnie Parker look fine.
Preston Williams finally showed back up again. Looked great.
Way had a face on a milk carton for a while.
Yeah, I have no idea where he waas so but yeah, I don't know.
I mean, that game was kind of what you expected it to be.
Anyway, moving on next was browns and cowboys.
We said game of the week and holy crap was at the game of the week.
I mean, huh, that was in the same s o.
The Cowboys are what the Seahawks were last year.
There a team and They're scoring more points since the Seattle Seahawks.
But they just like to like, pretend like they don't wanna win for a couple quarters and then they come out in half time and they're like, Hey, we remembered.
We get paid to win football games, right? And they go off the first quarter, they went out, they scored a couple times on and then they stopped.
Yeah, they didn't do anything in second quarter.
There's nothing in the third quarter.
And then they exploded in the fourth.
Dak went absolutely bananas, especially that last 5.
5 minutes of the game where it was just score, score, score, score.
That's on pace for 7000 passing yards on him, he's gonna be.
I imagine he'll be one of our top quarterbacks when we really straight on Wednesday.
So ridiculous game.
All the Cowboys players did great.
Um, Zika actually had the worst game of all.
Like the studs on that team.
He didn't have a bad game, but what a what a ridiculous game.
I mean, we could talk all day about what happened there in the last 12 minutes, so that game it was amazing, but I wanted to actually bring up Odell Beckham, who we brought up for the game like, Is he back? Is he not? This is kind of the tell all game for that and he's back.
Yeah, or at least he was back this week.
Well, I think it kind of correlates directly with Baker Mayfield getting his crap back in a pile.
I mean, he he looked like meant you for a little while. Actually.
Now he's back to the baker's gun slinger.
That and that was something we talked about, right? It's like, Look, if Baker is not going to be the guy that he was in his rookie year when he took over and led this team really well in through 27 or something touchdowns and then you know the guy, he wasn't Oklahoma, etcetera.
And he's more than that we saw last year.
Then this team is not gonna go very far and bakers starting to kind of figure it out.
The last couple of weeks are really indicative of that.
He's playing better.
He's delivering the ball better.
I got really excited when I saw Odell had a couple of touchdowns in a bunch of catches and like, Oh, man Baker Probably have a great day and I pull it up And Jarvis Landry through one of those touchdowns.
I was, like, Classic, Yeah, Classic.
I mean, what do you expect? Right, of course.
Jarvis Landry can throw a touchdown, but now there's Baker is coming along.
I think he still has a little bit more maturing to do.
He's not quite there, but Odell a great especially that long run at the end of the game.
He had a long run on a little reverse pitch.
Hey, really victimized Olden Smith.
Alden Smith had the edge set, and he just got hit with the okey doke and that great shot of Aldon Smith after that play on the sideline, just like there's that the meme of the dog that looks like it's staring off into affinity and shell shocked.
Oh, yeah, it was him, but it was ridiculous.
Hold that A on New York sports.
Yes, we do have Twitter at Ronnie A.
Evans at NFL Underscore.
Di Matteo d I m a t t e o.
Thanks for joining us today.
Um, and speaking off just the Segway into that, the actual gridiron ratings Twitter is gridiron rating with no s.
But we're about to release the formulas and all of the projections and all the updated ratings and grades and all that stuff, and we're working on a Web site redesigned right now.
There's a lot of fun things cooking, but with Cove it we've kind of decided, just take things as they come on and taking whatever the word is.
Do stuff. We're doing stuff.
We're taking our time with the baby.
Yeah, there are things that are being done.
Eso moving on to the next game.
Cardinals Panthers thing.
The Tom Brady Tom Brady.
I was talking about the ratings and everything distracted.
Now what's going on here? Cardinals Panthers 51 a half Over under we took.
This is the second game where we took the under on and, well, we took the over in the Seahawks Dolphins game.
54 a half of total scores.
54 things game we took the under 51 a half was the over under and 52 so that's a bad beat.
A little bit off bad.
Beat their right there but Arizona didn't show up the video.
Whoever showed up for that game was not the Arizona Cardinals, like the Arizona Diamondbacks, showed up to play for them.
I don't know what was going on there, but we didn't get anything out of that offense.
I mean, I Dan Arnold had four catches from like 36 yards.
You know, there was nothing happening.
And, you know, Teddy Bridgewater look good.
You had a nice scramble for a touchdown through a couple more like he looked really, really sharp.
And this is what we were hoping to get out of.
Teddy Bridgewater when you were picking up is a Q B two when you're a Panthers fan and you're thinking, Hey, we want to, right? This ship will keep things stable.
Give me Teddy be.
He's gonna keep things stable.
And that's what he did.
And he took apart water, puts a wounded secondary for Arizona, something we reference a little bit in the Early show.
You know, I like Teddy B, and I like them the rest of the way.
I don't know if this is a team that's any better than 88 but Teddy Bridgewater is a more than serviceable quarterback.
If they can put the defense on the field and maybe, you know, help him out with a couple offensive lineman, you know, they could be dangerous in the way Jimmy Garoppolo is dangerous.
I mean, yeah, for sure.
And I think that what's really interesting to me is that they did great without Christian McCaffrey.
That doesn't mean anything about Chris McCaffrey.
It just like if they're starting to figure it out now and they're getting McCaffrey here in a couple weeks back, that makes them more explosive.
Yeah, I mean, they look a lot better.
And I mentioned Mike Davis earlier about the Lions to him.
I guess I'm just a little out of it right now, but obviously plays for the pant.
Uh, but he had a great game, and I mean, there's blew their cats like I don't know what's going. I didn't eat lunch.
My blood sugars. Probably low.
Who knows what's going? We're gonna fill it full of pizza rolls.
We're done here.
We'll stop McDonald's, maybe.
Yeah, but yeah, perfectly just acceptable showing from Teddy B.
And the Panthers total Just disaster from the Cardinals.
Not really sure what all that was about.
I would have to go back and watch more the game because there were other games that were on that we had up at the time.
But I'll dive more into it, will.
Probably maybe, yeah, for some notes into it on our show tomorrow for the game.
We have this Sunday ticket only three screens.
Man, it's tough.
I know. We need to invest.
We wanna donate a TV, we can add another one.
You've got to going right here.
We need a third.
Uh, so next game was the Ravens at Washington.
I wanted so much more out of this game.
Eso like Jeffs a good person, and he we picked them to go over.
But that spread was 14 and they hit 14.
So in my world, I'm like, Yes, I went.
I'm calling it a push.
I don't think we should take credit for that one.
We hit right on 14.
My expectation is that the Ravens, we're gonna blow the Redskins off the field.
And so when I saw that I was like 14 is like, it seems almost too close.
Haskins had an incredibly good game.
Antonio Gibson showed up and threw down a ton of yards.
I think he looked really foreign.
McLaurin look great.
Nothing made sense.
You know, I'm just saying it was, You know, night was Day.
Day was night, you know, rain was dry, sunshine was wet.
The whole thing was backwards.
But anyway, that Ravens defense needs to figure out how to stop people really quickly.
You know, after the Kansas City game.
And now they allowed 17 toe Washington, which okay, only allowed 17.
Washington is three weapons.
Haskins, McLaurin, Gibson and Gibson hasn't done anything to this point.
Well, he's flashed, but like, he hasn't looked like he understands what, being a running back for people, and that's part of it.
You can't sit here and tell me that you're gonna You're gonna be a Super Bowl caliber defense.
Who's coming off getting blown off the field by the chiefs.
Like that game was not nearly as close as the score.
Minute. Look toward to make it look that close.
And then you come out against what's one of the weakest offenses in the NFL and allowed three scores and a stack of yards has been set for 300 plus McLorin over 100 get 125 or so yards that Gibson between rushing and receiving.
It's unfathomable that defense seems to figure it out really quickly.
Or they're gonna get blasted by teams like that's for.
Here's a fun question for you.
So Chiefs are obviously number one overall team in the NFL right now.
Banging? Yeah, people had Ravens and Seahawks.
Kind of one or two or two or three.
Neither of them look like they should be the second best team in the league right now.
If you had to pick one, who would you pick? Seattle.
Hey, at Isaac Sports.
Well, look you up on Twitter when we're done here, got your brother? Don't dio shooter McGavin.
Uh, she oh, so Seahawks, I guess, man, I'm trying to avoid the question.
Eso Here's the thing.
I have to believe Baltimore's gonna figure it out.
They have the horses on defense to do it, and defense usually travels and usually shows up late in the year.
Seattle doesn't have any defense, and that terrifies me.
And I think they're a really good team, like they're easily the kind of thing that go 13 and three. I'm not.
I'm not pooh poohing Seattle, but I look at Baltimore, man.
They everyone's there.
Seattle reminds me a lot of the 2018 Chiefs.
That's where I think that's ah, really on point and astute, you know, comparison there.
But I look at the Ravens and from top to bottom offense and defense and just I don't understand how they're not doing better.
I really expected this defense still a closer to like the 2000 Ravens, where it was one of the greatest, greatest defense is we've ever seen.
That back end is dirty.
Every guy is gonna have a shot of the Pro Bowl.
You got a couple really athletic linebackers.
You've got really fast and stable pass rushers.
You've got a couple of big horses inside with Campbell and Wolf and these guys, you know, it doesn't make sense.
And I gotta believe they're gonna, you know, kind of coalesce and figure it out, and then they're gonna be really scary.
But if they don't figure it out for is gonna blow them off the field in a few weeks.
And if you're a Ravens fan, and you.
You know you're getting punched.
You get it by now, before that, right? But now you're going to sit here and say, Okay, well, we got punched in the mouth by Kansas City and then Pittsburgh punches us in the mouth, and then you've got Joe Burrow coming down the line and he's looking really good.
I would love if the Bengals beat them.
That would be amazing.
Could you? I'm not even saying beat them.
What if they just went out and hung 500 yards of offense up there and still lost? That still shakes the confidence of the defense.
These are the things that can be a team's undoing in the postseason before you ever get there.
So Earl Thomas is obviously a cancerous person to play with under team at this point, absolutely.
But are they missing him? I don't think so.
No, I mean, he was last year.
He was a shell of himself.
Hey was not the player that we had come to know.
It's not the guy that was in the Legion of Boom this guy.
His best playing days are behind him, and now that he's a cancer, nobody wants and even the you know, you read this story on Where did you read the story? We got to give credit on Reddit E.
Follow the NFL Subreddit.
It's a great place because it just aggregates everything, but yeah, he didn't get signed by the Texans because the entire locker room apparently went to management.
Was like, We don't want that guy on our team.
Right? And that's a bad sign.
Players talk so that that's a bad look.
But now I think I stopped kind of side of Baltimore.
You know, I'm gonna give it two more weeks, you know? No pre season.
You know, you missed the rookie camps.
Everything is a little delayed this year.
So I'm trying to be like, Wow, how long can I kind of pushed some of these takes? Weeks six is probably acceptable to figure out, like separating the men from the boys if you wanna call it that.
But yeah, I mean, that's I I don't disagree with any of that.
I think that, interestingly enough, I mean, hopefully we pull through today, but we have been hitting really, really well, and this is a fantasy football like we're fantasy football gridiron ratings itself is a website that is built around a different way to ****yze how to great out players through ****ytics and ***ulative stats and so on.
But it was like, Why not? Why don't we start throwing our knowledge and towards these over unders? I let Jeff kind of take the lead there, so I blame him for the terrible showing today and just just be clear.
I disagreed with a couple of days, and I was right on all of those disagreements.
It's about time you spend three weeks being wrong.
That's not It is natural, but it z interesting.
I think that the reason that we are not a gambling sites because there's way more of those out there that you could put your money on and pay attention to, but the great ones actually established the run.
You know, at Adam Levitan and Evan Silva do a hell of a job with putting together, you know, they're, you know, props and parlays and who to take and all this kind of stuff.
But I mean, here's the thing.
Even after this week, you know, being kind of a stinker.
If you wanna call it that we're still gonna be, like, 64% on the year.
You wanna be 55 plus to make money, So we're feeling pretty good about that.
But anyway, what else we got is that all the games we hit all that's pretty much it? I mean, India is doing work right now.
They're in the red zone.
We had all the games that we had so far.
Usually there's more, but to postpone games, including the anyone right now.
But that's pretty much it.
I'm looking for some.
Jonathan Taylor is like, he's staring off with screen.
