ABOUT THIS EPISODE

We from. Good Morning Football Fans, you are listening to another episode of the SANEMBOOT first podcast. Thanks for hanging in with us. We had a little bit of a audio issue. We think we got through it. We're battling through. We got it. But this is your co host, Jim Marcus, coming to you from the correct bell production studios, powered by POPs, sponsored by in sure Phillycom Mga, MGM agency Matt Maloney. Check them out. Ten quotes in ten minutes. With me in the room today I have our very own ab which we will get to a be avalon Brian, Brian flattery flat. Thanks for coming in any buddy, always good to be here. Good to have you. And we also have a returning guest. We had a little break over the summer so we haven't had a chance at Mike McCaffrey in. Writer back. Mike is back. Thanks for coming in, Mike. No problem. We do not have deek today because apparently D can't handle the ITCHIES. I guess is what it comes to. We get into this a little bit, we can. I first let me say it's good to have been strength. That's what we're building. We Got Mike get in here. You Know Dj's back to school. Will Get Cava are at at some point again, but it's good to have bench strength. But yeah, we can. We could certainly rip deep that he's not here. The reason for not being here. You guys know why he's not here right because he's battling poison ivy. Yes, if he was battling the flu or shingles at his age, I could see it. Poison Ivy Really Dick. I mean he texted me yesterday and he said you want to hear something, or do you want to know something? I should pull a text about on my phone, but I thought he's gonna send me a picture. I'm like, no, I don't want I don't want to see a picture. He's like, I might not even go to the game. This police and Ivy so bad. Really Wow. I think your personally said that it reached a certain areas. That I mean, is it on his tain? That's where I went. I think it happened, thank God, wiping. You know, I had a neighbor that had it all over his junk and he said it was the worst thing ever. I actually had happened. You had. I had to go on steroids and antibiotic for it. So okay, yet been lucky enough to never get poison ivy. All right, well, we do. Back to football. Back to football, that's what we're here for and we're here for Eagles football. But first we need to talk about this Antonio Brown fiasco. I mean, when there's a car wreck, he got to stop him, watch it for a little bit and see what's going on. I know we're eagles focused, but this is just a circus and a shit show and whatever else you want to call it. Starts out first getting his way out of Pittsburgh. Fine, all right, he's a DV. He got that. Then the helmet. We would you do? Honestly, start with that, because you do that considering you want a super bowl there. You're a perennial contender. You've got one of the best quarterbacks of the generation. I mean Roethlisberger is and Peyton. Manning isn't Tom Brady, but he's right up there. He's got two rings. You're pushing your way out of there to go play in Oakland with a guy who hasn't coached in ten years, with a quarterback who's marginally marginal in the middle of the in the middle of the pack in the AFC. He couldn't do anything with not that. Amory Cooper is great, but you see how cooper looked a little better once you made it to the cowboy. So young question car. I had thought that it was an issue with Roethlisberger. I was on that side day. Why, why does bell so easily just walk away from that team and not want to go and play? Money plays a lot do, but the same thing with Browne as there's somebody there pushing them out. Doesn't seem like it to me. Ned doesn't seem like it. But the quarterbacks got to be the off the dog. That's just the way the NFL runs. You have to almost relinquish that control if you're a position player. Right, the quarterback starts. The starts the pot. Yeah, like the report that came out here about Carson Wentzeli, boys, OC he, targets, hurts too much. You're the quarterback, you're the head of the offense. Yep, do what you gotta do. Could be big Ben be at some fall here for both those guys leaving, or just a be probably, possibly maybe Tom Lin, maybe above him even? Who knows what really goes on that organization? So he gets away. Well, leave even Tomlin. You get one of the most respected coaches of the last ten years. The guy's got a ring consistent winner, you know, and he went I don't want to get into the race thing, but he brought a racial with Mayok, with the bracker thing, and Yep, that's a bunch of nonsense. But you know, you've got an African American coach there who's control the locker room forever and you don't want that. I think it's an authority thing with him. I mean, yes, he just wants to do his own thing and it's an odd situation, and that's what his instagram message pretty much said. Once you start...

...doing your own thing and wearing about you is when you start pissing people off. Yep, I think. And and so we were. We always text or in a week with all these things at and I kind of said a tongue in cheek, but like the concussion thing, like he really seems to have gone off the raise fast. Like he was always a bit of a showboat, bit of a diva, but this just seems he's been so up and down in a matter of two weeks. You know, mental illness is not something to joke about, but he seems like he's going goofy. Yeah, like he had the whole all the captains of the team, standing behind him yesterday or the day before, whatever. It was tear full apology, yes, and then all of a sudden, what change last night? Did you see the video he put up? Do you he betsy illegal is California? I didn't see her. So great daughter. Right. Yeah, well, cruden's covering his ass, right, because he wants to win. He doesn't want to lose football games. Wants to win. Even the start of all this, he, I mean he he damaged his feet with the cryotherapy. No, I don't. Have you ever been in those things? I've done it before, and I mean you go in for two minutes and thirty seconds. They put mits on your hands and your lower extremities and you know, they cover up your united. That the day region that we don't have. That way, you're not sitting out like deck. But for him to be in there for thirty minutes to damage his feet, who's running the show here? Mean, he's got trainers, he's got people looking. Yeah, he's got roses Nice. What's his agent doing? What exactly? Thank you. He's trying to, I brought off the agent. We had a head case to WHO's doing sit ups in his front driveway? Maybe it's the agent. We did. That's a lie taken. But you know, with Oteo, icon of got where he's coming from. He wanted to get paid. Yeah, and he wanted to say you do the Super Bowl. He did the broken angle. Yeah, he did everything you could have asked as a teammate to come back. All he want to do is get paid. Yeah, and he had a quarterback that wouldn't go out on a limb to help him exactly. So there's a lot there and that's that's why I think this thing with Brown is just so odd. He got paid. He did. They been over backwards to find him a helmet. Yeah, they let him skip practice, yes, they let him call out the GM. Well, and maybe may I seems like a no nonsense. They didn't let him skate down. They find him. Okay. They took away his guarantees either. So he's not getting paid. That's it. That was only until after the Mayok thing. So the practice is fine, but I find he didn't like it. The fine thing, though, you've got to be more in touch with today's NFL, like you've got. You can't treat your star Diva wide receiver the same way you would let's say you're, you know, your nickel cornerback, Mrs Practice. You're going to find him. Were like, you're Patrick Chung. Yeah, you're going to find Antonio Brown. I don't think so, at the level of money he's making. It's Twelvezero dollars. So you're going to go on a temper tantrum like your five years old to risk thirty million guarantee? It's you're right, it's ridiculous that the math doesn't make sense. But but the note right. You're going to send him a note. I know he put blew it up and put it on Instagram, but isn't that where you, Gruden and May oxhould take him aside man to man. But look, we got to lay the wood here. We got to set an example for everybody else. They didn't do that. They sent him a note. Well, that's what I'm hoping. We don't want that behind the seats because they are first year Gev, a first year coach with this team. You know, they want to show that there is going there needs to be that level of respect and discipline in the in the locker room. And Look, you're a veteran or depending on you this year, buddy, we're going to find you. We'll figure it out. You know, Nudge, nudge, wink, wink. You're not going to pay the fine. But here's the paper. Teach about more in game incentives where you don't even know you lost twelvezero dollars. It ends up being a tax right off for these guys anyway, because it goes to cherry so they can write off the fins. Yeah, I don't know. There isn't isn't it also, though, a little bit of bullshit where Gruden, I mean gruden good growden, controls Mayok, that's his top it. Yeah, Grud it, Gruden one and ab yeah, mayock Dinn it. Yeah, Grud and convinced me out to leave NFL to get a television to come back and to do his thing. But isn't that where he's got a he to runs the show? where he doesn't, I mean he can't stand at all of bay OK. Find Them. I mean it's Gruden doing it to Gruen's got a sign off on it. Yeah, you kind of reminds me a little bit when you know jeoffrey lorry lost a set and made chip Kelly run the ship and he I will just leave it there. But you talked about the coaches. To like you figure that Abe would like to be playing for Tomlin. Still, GRUDEN's got to be one of the biggest players coaches out there. Absolutely. If you don't like playing for Gruden, then where you're going to go as a player? Absolutely, yeah, why would he have beef there? I don't think ab wants to play football. I think he would. It comes down to you might be right. I mean you're right. There's there should be some credibility. GRUDEN's been out for a while, but he's got a super bowl ring. MMM, you know, there's there's credibility there. He's won before and he knows what he's doing and he's been engaged in the league. I mean, you know there's other guys that have come back. You look at Dick for meal. It comes back and wins the ring. That was a hard, uphill battle because he was not involved in the NFL up until...

...that. I mean he was doing some college games for ABC. But yeah, you know, gruden's been doing the quarterback camp and all the other stuff. Yeah, exactly. Doing the quarterback thing yet for the rookies on ESPN and stuff, and he never bade mouth anybody. Now, right, he was always a the players are great, two players are great, and so I would think if you're going to play for a coach, it's one of the coaches you'd want to play for, you would think. So, Oh, here we are. He puts the video out last night and it's like all right, this this is the end of it. Hopefully. You know he has the recording with gruden's voice and Gruden say we just want you here, man, we just want you hear. We want you. What did he say? Cut The shit. Is that what is? That was something. Yeah, just he said Patio play. He said cut the Shit, just play football, man. I don't know what's going on with you off the field, but cut the shit. Well, you know, it's interesting. I was thinking about it. He didn't have permission to tape grouting either. Now and I think that's a Mike. was say like that's that's illegal. That's rely. I don't know. How is it? You need dual party consent. Then, Gruden, I guess you got asked about last names. I I thought it was amazing. What of course he's going to say. Yeah, he's not going to he's not going to go sill me. He's still trying to look at this point polite. At this point, the infernos burden. You don't throw word gas on it. I mean it really doesn't matter at that point. So he gets fine K for the altercation with Mayok. That voids is guaranteed money. Right, he's not playing if he doesn't get the guarantee. So he's effectively on a week to week contract with the raiders. Right, right, yes, okay. And then two hours ago post an ollar thing on instagram. Release, it says, release me. That's the raiders. Yeah, he's a lunatic. Yeah, so now it's did he it? Didn't? He unfollow the raiders yesterday to on social media. Did I hear that? So I guess it was Wednesday. After he got into it. May I got being fine for not showing up the practice. He unfollowed car, the raiders and he started following like the Ravens or something. This is where we're going to like yes, and the bread crumbs on who were not allowing on Melt, Melvin Gordon, Star following, couple Eagle, just say yeah, and twitter exploded. I was like, oh, he filled Corey, corey climent. That means absolutely nothing. They were teammates. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, I love the social media. Now it's just this. Yeah, we all get our news, right, we're all change twitter and everything when we get in here this morning. But Yeah, the whole Melvin Gordon thing, it's just like always following the eagles now. But going back to Antonio Brown, if I'm bottimore, you're praying, you're praying that his cousin does not hang out with this kid, this man, during the offseason, where you're going to be in the same situation in two years from now. His nicknames already Hollywood. He's on his way there, pretty much. I don't think he's quite as gifted, though, either. Marquis Brown's is smaller. All right, he's not a that's only like a slop version of him and still be a diva. Yeah, that's true. That's true. So I think before Monday night working he's gone right. AB could not be a raider by the time they play Monday night. So I don't know if anybody could pull pull it off and would try to make this work. Chuckling. Yeah, I agree that that's it. You gotta drop heavy. I think the Broncos are one point favorites right now at home to me. Joe Flacca all that. That's true. It is Joe FLACCO, it is Lindsay, come back from an injury, Sutton. I there's a decent team. Might just stay away, watch the game relaxed. We'll see how I do this weekend. That's her. Yeah, that's a matter. Shackles on it exactly. So work one. One more point to make before we get in our eagles talk. If I don't think it's an if at this point. I think when he keep here, there's one team in the league that would have at least some interest in giving a be another shot, and that's the Patriots. And F the Patriots. I don't want it, but I don't even think. Do you, Fella check, would want to deal with this? He went through a Joe Sinco and hold the baccle Randy Moss. Moss was perfect. They're yeah, like most. Yeah, he had issues before he got there. Yeah, and I think Belchick, he can handle the big personalities. Josh Gordon, if they work on his system? Yeah, according to different sorts scenario, right, and Yep, he still has to stuff the babysit them. Stills to keep an eye on them. But he's not doesn't Sund like he's a malcontent in the in the locker room. He wants to play. He put out a nice l the other day about my past is my past. I'm looking to the future. How they atracted a murder, so they can probably do anything off there. Obviously that was pret murder. This isn't like what was little to Tom Cruise movie. You they don't know he's gonna be a murder. It's but I don't think belichick would have any interest. He's too talented to sit, though. That's the thing. He's too talented to sit. So there's somebody's going to have an interest. Somebody takes a shot, whether it's you got to think it. WHO NEEDS RECEIVERS? I mean I don't know if the giants have cap space, but they need a receiver. Tommy Young, the giant giants one. Tell me. How about the dolphins? He's in the same situation. WHO's his quarterback? Fitz Magic? I mean he's down there in Miami. He's happy. They don't do whatever he wants. He's in Miami. I mean more trouble. You know that. That's even more trouble.

Hell have you can wait it out a year's going to have two of throwing a ball to him next year. So, yeah, that's true. But you got you also got the red skins who take a shot on players like this. I mean there's I don't know, but the stee wars getting a call bring them back. No chance, no change now. Don't change. So I don't think so. No chance. He being a steel cage match. I'll I'll watch that. All right, that's about baby talk. Maybe we'll hit a couple more just league points before we get in our eagles. Take a break before we get in our ease, because I'll break that up. But ZEKE's back. I think we all does. Anybody didn't think he could be back by week one? No, no, no, surprise. He got his money. I'm surprised he took less guaranteed money, though. Yeah, and I heard this morning also that we get fifty million guaranteed on the ninety million contract. Yeah, still a tophist paid greape running back that we thought he would want, like how he was acting one at sixty. We know it became a little bit of a game to or you know Jones is taking a job and you know now they're seeing them shirts. Yeah, that's typically classic business. Yeah, I didn't buy into that for a second. Jerry Jones doesn't fight with his players, never has. Doesn't really put that out there. He takes care of them. When everyone really thought he wasn't coming back, as when Jerry said, Oh, you know, you don't need leading a front back. Yeah, to win a super bowl. And someone said your three rings you had the leading Russia in the League every year. Wasn't there guy near thing Smith that had a few rushing titles? Yeah, and during your super bowl run, every year they won the Super Bowl. And I heard this morning it's a different NFL. That's twenty five years ago, my friend. That is true, long time ago. Yeah, but there's there's stud running back still makes your teams. It doesn't Lee, especially, I know it in Ron and catchy. It's more pass heavy this league than it was years ago. But you got that stud running back. You can you don't know, but he is a knucklehead. He's another one that's one step away from being being banded. Yeah, yeah, I mean he's walking that fine line putting his hands on women beating up a security bank security guards like, oh, we got how much? Let me see, I assume again. Where's Antonio Brown? Is that internal turmoil? Yeah, he's not going to he's nothing's going on with him. He's not a side right, but he's not a bad citizen. He's not a bad Mr right outside where Zeke Kelly? You don't know what you got there. And then you got deep, you know, buying water guns with his quarterback that no man should ever buy. So's Ohio state people. You know. That could be. I think gets it all comes down to. Would be still remembering the video that gotten beat up on spring break when he was at Mississippi State. Yet beat up on spring break. Yeah, the quarterback got beat up. Yeah, oh my wow, google it. It's great. Well, the the quarterback. I was gonna make a comment. Stephen Jones said now that we got zeke in there, they're hoping to have the deck contract done by week one. I don't say the contract. Things are going on. Why do that? You still have him in a contract next year. You still have them on the rookie deal. Why would you do that unless there's a cap space ramification. But they're talking paying them forty million dollars. I'm Jerry Jones, you have you have two guys that need to be signed and you have two guys on two different teams that are going to get more money than that. If I'm Jerry Jones, you got to pull trigger now where that's going to be part owner, and so Zamari Cooper. Yeah, because Holmes is going to get paid and Julio is going to get paid where he's not playing tomorrow. Bulio starting to yeah, I'm a little worried about that. I Have Julio Old and your league, you, Julio, to play too bad. Yeah, are going the waiver wire. And then the last point, Melbourne Gordon, the trade offer from Melvin Gordon. We heard that the Eagle was actually made an offer for Gordon at I'm fine with that. That's Hollie being Hanley. Why are you not gonna go in and just will flip EA Jordan Howard in it? Mid Room swap. We pick like thirty three, like near the end of the fifth round. You picked the top. Will switch those picks. No big deal. Well, you know what. You expect them to be in on it and to put out feelers. And Yeah, it was a BS offer, but from that offer, if there were serious, could have came a counter offer right that? Think that's the game right now. Fish. You're fishing a little bit without putting it out there. And you know Jordan Howard as he showed you anything that you're overly impressed with in the preseason and really plain. So yeah, I mean I worried about him catching the ball. I mean so if you get, if you can get Melvin Gordon, I'd love it. But I don't think you have a room for a ten million dollar running back on this team on one year. No, especially when you got miles standers in a rookie year a contract. WHO's your future? Yeah, and you have quite climate on a corey clam and draft and drafted exam Steven or whatever. Yeah, yeah, so all right. I think what we'll do is we'll take a quick break, pay some bills, will come back, we'll get into our eagles Washington preview. There you go. Take his away, Mr Engineer.

You get actual numbers at the end of your web interaction. There all right. So here we go. We are finally here. We've waited, it feels like too three years for real football to get here. We didn't see real football Thursday night. We did not. That was preseason game number five. I'm a little worried we may see preseason game number five here. No, just these teams not playing their starters. It's not it. It's going to be so mixed. Biscay, I I hear. But the I told you, I have told everybody, I don't think the bears make the playoffs this year. NOPE, went on record said it. I don't believe it. I don't believe the hype. I don't think they're that good. I don't think that quarterbacks that good. You cut half your running game, that's a mess. So, Allen Robinson, you get really thing to look at rid of Jordan our because you like to recovering, but then you use the rookie more and like Davis more. Yep, Mike David's actually let in touches, didn't he? I believe say. I believe so. Yeah, Robinson had a hundred yards. I mean he had a decent game. I didn't start them in my other leg, unfortunately, but boom, but yeah, the bears. I just think are an overhype team. They were the sexy pick going in and I did. I just think they're one of those teams are a foot that are going to fail this year. I I just don't see it. I got shit last weekend because I picked the vikings to win the north. I agree with that. I think the fence is yes, the defense, they didn't really lose anything. They do there. I think Dalvin Cook is in for a really good season. He was still coming off the injury last year. Absolutely ran the ball. Well, Yep, that Steph diggs dealing with an industry. He might play. He might not play this week, but I love digs and Thal in there. Ye, all right, kirk cousins, that's what Dj kept getting on me about the quarterback. Twelve quarterback. I don't need to be great. No, he doesn't, but he's not a bad he can throw thirty touchdowns and that defense and it's stayos offensive weapons. Yep, went to the NC championship game with case keying on. Yep, Kirk cousins, it's a lot better than case keying them. They're going to win the north. Yeah, they remind me of a lot of Donovan's eagles where Donovan, you know, I know he's the best quarterback. And then Franchranchise, and it hurts me to say that, but that defense, the way it's formulated, and you've got a lot of weapons, you can spread the ball around it. I think there's a lot of parallels. There were. Cousins. Isn't a top five quarterback, but he's right outside the top ten. And Yeah, good enough. Yeah, yeah, a good coach there too. I see, I knew I had a room full smart people. Yeah, last weekend those guys just didn't know what they were talking I think the Vikings are a lot of I had eleven and win team. Yeah, getting three seed to the championships. He Championship. He was Eagle Vikings. I don't have a repeat, but I do. I do have it. Circle of life, come Super Bowl, pats, no true circle of life. Oh, Andy, Andy, all right, well, we'll get to that. Will do picks to will get to the I don't think. We don't think I didn't get you what you guys on a record like we had on the wreck can DJ. All right, so let's I like to just kind of go through the positions and do our confidence in like positions, not specifically players, to figure out where we're going to go with this game. I think this is an easy game to pick, but just entertain me here, right, and we could entertand this all right. EDGE GOES TO WHO? On the quarterback? I mean, let me tell you. You mentioned case keenom. I mean he's future hall of Famer. Let's get that out there. Sure, the eagles. All right, so we got eagles quarterback case Kandam as the ultimate Journeyman, and he looks good in that Vikings. You know that Vikings run a few years ago. He's not going to do much tomorrow. You look good at you could he look good in that first drive and then he just went down all from there. You could. You could take Josh mccount of our sideline drop him on the rich skins. Yeah, he's case King. It's you, Basen. You've also got the lesser gruden there, who doesn't realize what he's dealing with. He's not the quarterback whisper men. This is his last year down there. Right. Do you think kingdom makes it through the season? As to start, no askings coming in.

He's not even making it through the game. Some day there's a how to take look at you'll go keep going down your chart. A world running back position, I think is interesting. I can't block, you can't run the ball. Okay, so you can look at it that way. All right, guys, is staffords. His line is one of dangerous. But when you have three guys under the age of thirty compared to one and a dude, we cut. Yeah, goes eagles. You don't think Wendell, he said he's not going to give up any secrets. Is I those? I don't. He said it an interview. There's are my guys. I want a championship with them. I who signed his paychecks while they also picked up Trevin Hester so or Treyvon Hester so. Days before that I was like, I can't wait to womp on the eagles. What we wants to whomp on them. But yeah, I get it, the competitive nature. But so you go and you're going running back to take the offensive line out of it. You can't. If they can't block it, can't run the ball and entertain me. GUYS COMING OFF ACL injury. But are they? He's looked good in during seerson another year older. Did Peterson, four year old? Now I thought I said that Peter should might even be an active for this game. Would you? I don't know. Is there's Thompson is would be the next of mine. But Yep, Eagles he goes. Do we even need to go wide receivers? The redskins have any, which we see now. They cut chlorine oxin. Was the best that tree. You would have like cale Richardson. I mean, come on. Yeah, Terry McLaren, you really haven't given him any weapons to throw. Two there all right, back to you like this point. Josh Doxon's there now too. That's right. That's right. Tight End Eagles. Four years ago this might have been a bigger toss up when Jordan read stayed healthy and looked like he was gonna be a top tenend. He's knows all. He should hang it up if he wants to have a life after football. Yeah, I mean he's going to be used tomorrow. He's gonna have to block, he's gonna be's gonna have to block heavy tomorrow. It's the line. I mean, he's not the weapon he was. He got like his eighth concussion in preseason. I didn't he got a concussion a preseason till. Yeah, it's time to hang it up a good look. I mean look at the Eagles. What they have now. I think this is very similar to what the Patriots had with Gronk and her name has years ago. I mean, yeah, God, it looks. God, it looks amazing. Yeah, I'd almost say God it at this point in Reid's career. Got It's better than read. I don't think hurts and readerer question or just definitely far away. Yep, but Godard at this point might be. Yeah, all right, this is looking like a eagles sweep. On the offense, offensive line. They signed they are forget the flowers. They signed Donald Penn off the streets last week. I mean Trema. This is he was like football last year. He's going to be your starting left tackle against that all. He was okay when he was with the raiders, but that was three years ago. was three years ago. He's thirty six years old. He didn't play the last year. Yeah, all right. So that's a queen clean sweep. On the office defense, special teams, defensive line. I don't know how you GOIN's. They have one player, Jonathan Allen, on that line to Yep, concern to me at all, and the strength of his team is the offense. Are The defensivesive line? Yeah, linebackers there. I think the Redskins have an advantage with Ryan Kerrigan. Kerrigan, he seems to give Lane Johnson fits. Yep, Johnson says he loves battle. Whim. He's one of those guys. He loves playing against WHO ELSE? Ryan Anderson? Ryan Anderson's good linebacker. We'll give them. Will give them when we got a throw them one from a bone. Yeah, hopefully Brandham has his head screwed on straight too. Doesn't and I don't think camel's playing right. They said he's out for more. Everybody else's good tours, Elsie. I'll then he I thought they were still going to be like if you do, though, that's a that's a that's one of the ligaments that heels on its owne though. Yeah, so we did that door in an open practice. Yeah, yeah, he'll be back. I think this should week to be to a week. Yeah, secondary again, the strength for us. Josh and Norman doesn't scare anymore. He's the best player on that defense. But other than that, I mean, who's who? Your safety's Landon Collins. It's okay, giant. Yeah, other than that, I advantage eagles. Eagles, if they're healthy kicking game, we care. I'm I don't like our I don't like Elliott. Yeah, from forty yards back, I'll take eagles. Anything shorter, I don't know. Yeah, he's destined to miss like an extra point or two, which is yeah, but you've wrote put them at sixty one yards to win the game. Now is money. It doesn't come down to that tomorrow. So now we're not worried about it. Who is Washington's kickers? It's still hoskins or Hopkins? I don't even know what this point. Yes, it's Dustin Hopkins. Will give that the Washington just you just to throw another bone? Or special teams. Generally the eagles are zipped up group Eagles. We got an and on that special teams. Maybe we can get to one of the conversations we had before we lie with Darren sprowls. See...

...what's going on back there, coach. Come on, Doug. All right, so we got one, two, three, four, five. The line is to the line is ten. Nine to two. The line is ten for a reason. Yeah, nine to two eagles. So it sounds like we're all pretty confident in Eagles win. I think you should still put a mortgage payment that. The Eagles cover that line. They cover that ten. That's a think. Okay, yeah, they're you're not worried about any rust at all. I don't think the redskin score it touchdown tomorrow. Those three, those score one. Maybe maybe a defensive touchdown? No, or special teams. I don't I don't think they'll score. They'll score one in final minute when the rookies in there. Junk. Okay, garbage touch down. Yep, yeah, this is a show lacking. This is like a twenty eight to I think twenty eight two six, like this is an ass whoopan tomorrow, who they're gonna come out fired? Thirty eight hundred and ten. I let's see that. If you look, if you like, prop bets, first play of the game, Djadjack comb without doubt. And what did you say for Twenty eight six? Go Twenty eight six with some upside. All right, I mean you, I'm confident. You seem to be a lot more confident. I am still worried. That's at the link. It's at the link. I we can give a touchdown, not even just three given touchdown. For it being at the link. You got a different Carson Wentz this year. You're here in the stories where he's engaged with the offensive line. He's out buying the Pappy van winkle, he's out hanging with the boys. He's bonding as opposed to eat sign he's buying the wide receivers expansive alcohol. Yeah, yes, yeah, familiar with the pappy. He I still have any shred at the knee brace, which you could tell less you even before he got her he was uncomfortable wearing if there. After every play he would been down to do something to just always get fiddled with it. Yeah, he went gluten free, changed his work out. I don't know how he gave up pizza. That's the same. Yeah. Well, he's seen a lot of venison and all the other stuff, but that lean protein hunt and the squirrels, but whatever he's doing down there, but it kind of changed his whole outlook. I think that that's and he doesn't have nick. I hate to say it, he didn't have nick folds looking over his shoulder. That had to weigh on him. I don't care who she said, with him on the roster that we wait on. Yeah, but does this? All this all sounds great. That shadow is still there, though. It's always gonna be there. And but it's all. But, it's not that. But it's not there to take his job. That's not there's no, there's no. No one's calling for the cown to take over. No, no, hope, we're sub felt right. It's but, and all that stuff is great for team chemistry and bonding in the long term, but we're talking about tomorrow. He hasn't played a full speed game. You saw Aaron Rodgers greatest quarter back right now, which totally overrated. Knew All that here, Mr Engineer. You know my take on Aaron Rodgers new offense, new head coach and a head coach that he's battling with tow yes, our new offense still Aaron Rodgers off you, but he gets in there and does whatever the hell he wants. Yeah, yeah, that is not true. Did you see what happened in the offseason? A lot of battling there. Lost Weapons. He doesn't have wide receiving cory had before. I mean he still got Vante Adams, but you know, you've changed a lot there. It's not the same packer team and TRIPISCY's overrated. Yep, and I'm not even saying it. And the bears defense is great, which is probably kept Aaron off, you know, off his pace, but sure he, the whole team just looked rusty. Theirs defense is so good. Mac didn't even have a sack on Thursday night and they had five. Ye, all right. Well, I'm still eagles win. I'm thinking more like a two thousand, one hundred and ten. I'm not. I'm not doing a big, huge blow at that. Still gets me my ten right, it's still cover. I'm gonna revise at the thirty five to six. I think this is kind of the old paint state ways where it's like twenty to nothing, but ups one nine and twenty one nothing at halftime. If you want to go home, you can. It's okay, yeah, we're playing High Idaho tomorrow or it yeah, tomorrow, yeah, all right. Any key matchups in the game that you guys are looking forward to? You already mentioned Djacks, djacks against I don't know if Norman. Norman seems to play one side. He doesn't float. A lot of perman's going on shadows, how Sean. That's why I was wanting I they figure out shuns the number one receivers. They're going to put him on. I expect big game from Djack and Mr Ever paid spot watch, ever a you are, don't have a big game. Well, to your point, I want to see what outside does. I mean he could upen the injury report with it. What a BICEP injury? Right? Yeah, because I think of Ante Max headbutter them and in the bice is that what it was? Yeah, he's like it was just a bruise. Who kept them out so he could like it all right? Well, the eagles don't generally do the nonsense on the IR reporting. And if you saw the packers IR report before the game, I mean it was like half the team. Yeah, was not the IR. The injury report is I think the bears listed for players the packers list of twenty...

...or go the hell's going on here? Yeah's just be safe than sorry, I guess. How about the I think the defensive line, like you mentioned, flying that they're going to eat Washington's Ol. They're getty, horrible, terrible. Socher cocks is going to fledger Cox is looking at that offensive line is like its myrs my day. I want to see Derek Bartonett have a good day. Mars my day, come back from the injury show that he's ready to go. A couple sacks, maybe from from Derek Bartnett. You can checks. You Got Jackson going there too. I love to actually in the music. That's such an underrated pickup. I know that was my favorite pickup. I can see him having a very good year because, as butcher Cox is going to get all the cogs any at timmy turning into. I mean you got a lot going on there. What's his many carry baers? What's his rap name? Give me. Turning in. I'm a clone by that for now. So jewels. Is it not Iversen? Yeah, what other interesting matchups do we have? All I already I already mentioned Carson against just Roast Carson. throwst his yards tomorrow, knock him off and just he does whatever he wants tomorrow. Very they're not going to get any they're not going to get much pressure. If you could chip Krragan, they're not gonna get much pressure on him. He's gonna have plenty of time tomorrow. The offensive line is healthy. I mean it's amazing. The Brandon Brooks is probably will be playing yet. Amazing that me Tours Achilles ten and what seven months ago, eight months, months to come back and he's racing Schamer. Yeah, and he's ready to go. Yeah, that's for markable. Stud Muffins gonna have two sacks tomorrow, is that is? That's his that's his rapper, nice, Stud Muffin. Yeah, she's I don't know how it's hard. You get coney there right here, honey. How hard you honeybuttons? Funny hard you can be as a rapper going stud, move it. Jeez, he's got the he's got the grill at the girl. He gives him some street cred right. Yeah, I'm even made Stud Muffin and Stud Muffin and Turkey tits. I mean, what a mess nice. All right. Any other big matchups? We worried about guys? No, not worried. Had All block for him. He's coming off on acl no blocking, no running all you. If they jerry has to Gar him out. I feel it's the only Al Produce. Just check in my list. Just don't, don't look ahead to the Falcons. That's the only thing. You can't look ahead. But I just don't see it being a problem. Dogs teams come out prepared. Three. He's three now. Yeah, I've been guess he has to see us. This isn't Andy Reid. Were Andy would have that hiccup and we'd always start, you know, one and two, hundred and one some. Yeah, weird, this is an Andy raid. Yeah, the Eagles are nine and two in their last eleven season openers. That's tied with Denver in New England for the most dogs. Looking for four street with a home openers. Yep, sprowls, why is mentioned? We're on the same page with that, like I. Why is he here? He needs a hundred and sixty three all purpose yards to get them to get five. Okay, and he's close. He's close to Twentyzero all all purpose ars. So he's going to pass Tim Brown. I saw that. Why? I hope that they didn't bring them here just for that reason, just to get him. What's the sentimental attachment to him? You know, and you hear stories about him, he's not very vocal in the locker room. I listen. I give him credit for working his way back from those injuries. Yeah, he's not this vocal leader. He's a lead by example guy. Fine, you're thirty six years old. Yeah, you've missed twenty with a twenty or twenty one games the last two years some I mean you took up a roster spot last year. We had a couple games where Josh Adams was the only active running back or viable running back without an injury, and you're going to have this guy sitting there. Yeah, and I don't see it. They had questions with their receivers or other receivers that they might have wanted the whole or or even offensive Lin'm in. And Yeah, you'd take a spot for this guy that if he's only there to return punts, because I think, did I hear? Miles might be returning kicks? Miles, inquiry and court clear, come o too, deep man. Yeah, which they'll literally just stand there just yeah the way. Well, Cory will run them if they're short enough. Yeah, listen, I hope he proves this wrong. So do I. But back you don't. You don't want your spot. We have three running we have a rookie and two other young guys. Don't you need some type of veteran in that besides just beside your running backs coach? I guess that's there was somebody else that was out there this week that we didn't go get with Shady McCoy. I mean I would have taken a waiver on shady over sprowls as your third running back. Not, he's not your feature back anymore, but a change of pace, guide and catch the ball out of the backfield. I don't know. Yeah, I might agree with you there because shade he's not as versatile as sprowlsing. He's not going to help with the punt returns and a kick returns. No, but but he's the veteran presence. He'll catch pass you can put them in short yards, because you can't. He's still can run people over. He still a big guy. Yeah, I mean he can do a lot more. He blocks. So you mean she always, always, he's always been a good blocked a lot last year. Yeah, Buffalo. Yeah, true, just hurt in her a lot. Yeah. So sarrow three yards carry or something like that. Ye, the lowest of his career. Yeah, but but you've also got a garbage offense there on a team that's always struggled, whereas...

...here you've got almost a perfect situation. You know your offense online. It is bad when your quarterback is the leading him, but I think that's part of that quarterback to I think Josh Allen just likes to run. Plus I hit no receivers to throw the ball to. Know that is very thank you. Have John Brown this year. Will see if that helps him. I do think maccoy has a nice bounce back here this year. I'm not saying he's not a thousand yard guy with Williams there, but he could probably get a thousand combined one yards, receive, receiving it, receiving and running. Absolutely and he said he likes to go with the committee. Speaking of Kansas City, we your thoughts on the extension for tyree kill. Yeah, that was a bit surprising, but if he keeps his nose clean he's one of the top receivers in the league. So high to think he was bullshit, like how do you cut hon so hunt roughed up the girlfriend right, and I'm not as there was a video of it. I know I'm not all became down anything. Yeah, but he'll breaks his own son's arm. I mean I don't know how to way the lesser of the two. Yeah, they're both pretty awful. Yeah, but I really think it comes down to there was evidence and he doesn't even get was on video and the girlfriend took the heat for tyreke right. He doesn't even get suspend it, you know, like which is sick. Right, hardy gets suspend that. There was in the video. Other players got to spend and there wasn't a video. There's only been two players I got suspend it. There's a video. That's ray rice and young Mont. Well, I think it was in the hearty case. The woman kept pushing it and saying, yeah, we're in the tyree kill case. It was. I'll take the heat for you to take. How do we take it? Why didn't watch the video evidence? You know? Yeah, we have in a court of law where I agree you don't need video evidence to prove it someone's guilty beyond a reasonable galloped out of something. Yeah, it's got a broken arm. The story changed four times. Yeah, guess what, he broke the arm. Yeah, apparently a take doctor too or something. You're both responsible. Yeah, right, absolutely. Point fingers on your want. That's it. Yeah, if you two were together, then you're both responsible. I heard that there's there should have something done. I don't know the extension. The NFL's got a bunch of bad actors in the League, bunch of bad guys. Yes, it's kind of surprising that it's Andy that did it. Though, because you feel like he has a little more of a moral compass where but he really wants at Super Bowl he rehab R vic. It's by everyone's like, oh, we should sign cream hunt. Last year, vix a different story. Yeah, I had this conversation with somebody that's with vic did his you know, I re kill, didn't find you know, didn't get punished for what he did. Vick paid the old I mean vic had. Yeah, yeah, fixed become a hero of mine for what's done. I mean, if you read about what he did, he was bank I'm sorry. He owed almost sixty million dollars, predators like bankrupt and paid it all. Well, no, that didn't declare bankruptcy. So he paid everybody back. He could have taken the easy way out and said no, no, I'm going to declare bankruptcy and screw you. Guys. Know, he paid all his debts, paid his dad decide. He paid all the DASS like that money got from the eagles. He didn't even say really, he said he saw some of it. Yeah, a lot of it was Nike on him and he's in a good position now and he's still doing the outreach now and he's out of late what five years now, he's still talking animal groups. I mean, yeah, I truly believe he's reformed and I kind of saw that one is easy. Kind of gave it a crooked eye where I was like, I don't know if I'm gonna buy this. He's gonna Total. I'me. I'm not going to buy it. He's still doing all that stuff and I think the public is starting to come around too, because he actually has an endorsement dealing with them. He a sports I saw commercial the other day, yeah, where they're bringing him back for two thousand and twenty and the ultimate cheek code they were calling them. Yeah, he's like, yeah, you hear him talk foot he knows the game. He's standing, isn't it? He's gonna be an analyst eventually. I mean I think he's doing some stuff now, doing stuff on NFL Fox, like before, Yep, the actual where they had moss before. They had moss there and they had a couple other guys doing that. They have like they have moss, or they had. They Vic concoward think one of the there's been a couple guy. Yeah, he's outstanding. Yeah, before, like Terry, though, his a Bronkri show the only thing that sucks now, though, is he's back in the limelight. His brother has kind of gone sidelents, rtice. Yeah, Miss Marcus on twitter. He's kind of got silent. It's just it's a shame. Yeah, all right, that I gave my prediction. Two thousand, one hundred and ten. How about you boys? We got some some guests in here listening in. You guys want to give a prediction for the game tomorrow? You get on the MIC here. This is Dylan, Dylan flattery. What do he got, Dylan? I've predict the eagles will win for the record this season, eleven to five, and Redskins tomorrow. I would just scool. What's The score tomorrow? I have a good feeling about thirty one to ten. Probably they go. Are you in ten? All right, could pick. How about you, Brodie Man? You got some prediction?...

Series is Brodie Marcus. Start them off young. I think it's going to be a blowout. I think it's when we thirty five to ten. You're there with Flyan. I'm saying they're gonna go twelve and for making it to the Super Bowl. There you go, all them for Super Bowl. Right, gust chiefs canst achieve. That's what I have. It's crazy kids. I have them twelve and four, beating the chiefs in the Super Bowl. I have them twelve four. So well, let's so let's get your predictions and for the season. Looking around the NFL, one and winners. You want to go through the Games, the actual schedule? That's we did last week, DJ DJ and I went through each game. What do you want to give your pick? And then we can get to the NFL as well. What do you want to do? Like going through the NFL? That the auto thing is kind of tough to do. We got your I know we didn't. You weren't in here for that. No, all right. Let's go into IFC first. Then I think the east. Who Wins? The East? Patriots, obviously, when the east, but I think the jets make the playoffs. All right, we had one jet and we had one patriot. Last week or now we had three patriots. Patriots win in the Vision. Patriots, all right, sweet food patriots. ABC North. The steelers still win that north. I'm not buying the Brownie hype. steelers dealers, I'm with you. I don't buy the browns. I think I have said it they're going to be a great fantasy team for points, but as far as the right, the real league there, they'll be second. Yep, but I don't. I don't see the type of super bowl run out of there. I'm like some people are hanging. This is the interesting when we didn't get to talk about it again the south because at the time we did this Andrew Lucky still player. So we had three people gone with the colts and one vote for the JAGS. HOUSTON, HOUSTON. I've been long on the jags since they got there. Jags folds to DD Westbrook is going to be a beautiful combination this season. He plays all season. True. Yeah, I was one on the cold side. I think I might be with you. Flying with the JAGS. Yeah, and you gotta remember the Filippos down there now run on that offense. So I just did Texans, with the running game being a little on sure clowny not being there anymore, and watch a mess bill O'Brian. I like their offense. I still think with the Shaw and the receivers there gonna be good. But they had GM. Yeah, right, coach last gm Deshaan Motson, little fuller, Andre Hopkins, Kenny Stills. Yeah, it, I should be enough for me. Duke Johnson's going to be serviceable. Carlos High I got Carlos side out there now. At least they have something more than Halford Helu German wasn't available. I mean Reno Baje, get rid, no, milly in some crab frice. Yeah, all right, AFC west Kieves. I'm on the chargers. I've been on the chargers from day one. I think even I think they've got to get the Gordon situation situated, but I think they will and I think this is I think is Philip rivers here. We had to cheeks. We had two chargers last week, the week prior. I think the chiefs are my other wild card team, if that means anything. So I think the jets and the jets and the chiefs are your wild cards. Jets as a while. CARN interesting. All right, the east, and IFC East, my wild my wild card teams are the chargers in the browns. Let me Baker. No question. We all got the Eagles for the east, right course, and I see north. We had two bears, one packer and one vikings, and I was ridiculed for my Vikings pick I'm right there with you on the Vikings. I think the Vikings are at eleven. Win Team Minnesota and found all right that the over under for the Vikings is nine. To me, that's take the oneasy over. It is ten and six. South. South is interesting. It was just sweep with the team we all pick, but I wasn't real confident in but the extension being signed this morning. As of right now, I'm taking the Falcon. Did he signed? Yes, nice, I got. We got wholio for week one. Don't have to worry about him not playing. Well, worried about your fantasy line up? What's the shows over? Yeah, I'LL gonna throw you off here. I think the buccaneers went. The set looks. I think Bruce Harrian's figures Jameis Winston out. I think the saints are. You are the wild card team, but I just think that's your there's always something that goes screwy in NFL. I think that's that's what goes screwy this year. You Got Mike Evans. He's got a tonne of weapons. Yeah, he's got a quarterback, Godwin, Penn State Guy. Yeah, there's another pain steak guy. There we go. We Boys we love the pain state guys around there. But yeah, I agree that their offense. They get the running backs young here out. They could be a good offen. They coach Howard. I mean a lot like us, a lot of weapons there. And also, you know, I think it's some their quarterback is shaky, though. He's shaky, but he's the quarterback whisper. You know, Bruce Arians does wonders with some, I think, lesser talented quarterback. There...

...was a reason John Gored and then want to go to Himpa Bay. I don't think he wanted to go back there. Now. That's all that. Yeah, he wants to go to Vegas next year. That's what. That's what. Rude's old if he makes it that far. He he lives ten minutes away there, from there to he's like now go go to oak and they're moving to Vegas. We all picked the saints. Yeah, I think it's kind of chalk, but yeah, and I could do. I think they're your wild card team. I mean I yeah, rayms cowboys or the wild card. So then the West. You you're going with the rams to win to West n no, no, you have the West. SEATTLE. We had one Seattle pick last week. I think the rams went that West ms running away. So then you who you have in the ABC championship to I think we got your AMC championship picks. Right. Do we do this when you were in here? I don't think we did. They weren't. I got you with the chargers and the chiefs. Maybe you texted it in. That is correct. All Right, you got Mike AFC Yep, chiefs over the Patriots. I just think this is the year father time reckons with these older quarterbacks. Same with drew brees. Drew brees and Tom Brady. Sooner or later father time wins. Guys are getting old. I think Brady and think Brady's the only cool, only player left in the league that's older than us. Brady and Venetaria, believe it's gonna say there's a kicker that's radiant Brady, butts like saying it. Yeah, I dj had Casey and the PATS. I had any I switched that to the chief so I had the chargers in the chiefs. No, I'm sorry, the chief should I just put here stealers, stealers, chargers and steelers and decad the pats and the chargers. So he got for NC. We'll go with the eagles vikings part two. Yeah, I'm like Eagles over Seattle. I do like your Seattle pick. They're all on the record now. People are sleeping on them a lot. Their offense is stout. Pete Carol's got a track record. A clowny acquisition is nice. I'm highly underrated. Yeah, big time. I don't know that they're back to be in the Legion of boom, but they're. Yeah, you know, you can have a good defense. I had Philly vers Minnesota. So we want to give super bowl predictions in not yet now. I got yours. got to sound like too I got Mike stokis Mo sound like too much of a homer on the stand a boot. Philadelphi Eagles brought podcast. Sometimes it sclings that way. All right. So we got we got the season long predictions. Any games this weekend outside of ours that you guys are looking at gaming week, that you're really interested in? I thought that Green Bay Chicago game was gonna be a great game start to season off with things. I had trouble stay in a week. You know I'm interested, based on my pick that niners buccaneers game, because you've got two teams that are there's some. There's a lot there. Right. Garoppolo comes with a lot of hype. Last year ended with disaster. They could end up being a sleeper. Yeah, as well, they could be a team that bounces back. So I think that's an interesting game. And I think the Jaguarres case game. Obviously Jackson, Bill Jackson fills the three and a half point favorite. You know, we'll see how that or, I'm sorry, three and a half point dog. We'll see how that goes. It's gonna be big Sammy Watkins Game, you think? Yeah, Tay reachch going to be chadowed by Jalen Ramsey, big Sammy Watkins. I think it's a big Nick foles game. It's a high scoring game. Yeah, well, hopefully, hopefully at fifty. Want to see fifty, fifty and a half over another over over. I did have as one of my games a week I liked the you treat Arizona game just because I want to see cliff kingsberry's offense. He didn't show anything in a preseason and they came out and said that we're very vanilla. The the NELS, even the word probably unset it on flavored completely. Yeah, I want to see. I have a feeling he's going to be like chip Kelly. I was just going to say, is this. You know that, even though it didn't happen, it was this Mariota Kelly find, you know, getting that marriage in the NFL, because it hasn't worked before. If we seen a coach quarterback combination come out, because he said it when he was still in college, he was likely. If I was an NFL coach right now, I would take Kyler Mary Number One and yeah, whether it works or not, it could still be you get the marriage, but marriages don't always work out. We could have a you know, they win. I think the win some games because teams don't know what to expect with them. Yep, but that after three years, two years, catch on the like five and eleven you're done. Any Games you're looking at in particular this week, I like that Little Falcons Vikings. I like that. I like the Falcons at Ryan's gonna come back from like last year was disappointment for them. Juyo just on his extension. He's ready to ball FALC that's good. That's a big distraction off their plate. Yes, if they didn't have him or that was lurking. He's he's not a guy you want unhappy. Nope, now, as long as he's happy, he's great soldier. Yeah, you don't want him as a malcontent. So, yeah, he played it right through the offseason. He is around. It wasn't holding. Now he said it'll get done, no drama. Then you heard them at the end of this week saying if I...

...don't have a contract, I may not play him. Is Bothering me too, you know, and I like the browns heavy over the titans. I think that's the wrap up for you. How To fel this week? A couple their topics we can get into absolutely one being those fills God, and I know Mike your big fills guy. I'll be honest, I haven't really been plugged in much at all. I just wants football comes around. I'm all football. But even just through the summer they that stretch and July where they just kind of started to really tank after a nice run where they got back to five hundred. And now what are they at now? Think I've for over at this point. Yeah, for over, over. We got the seven over right after the first or the second reds wine seven. Yeah, and they fallen back again. Yeah, and then I haven't seen anything yet, but harper took that ball off the hand last night. Almost got him a face. Look, we got a I got on way they said. He said he's fine. He was taking out of the game because it's so swollen he couldn't hold the bat and he said if it swelling goes down he'll play today. R. So nothing's broken. Can we speak to that? Because you know what this manager, he's reached a code tight level of hate for me. I want him gone. I can't stand the guy. But you hit Harper last night. You had a base open, you plug Harper. You threw hot that. That pitch was intentional. It wasn't meant to hit him, but it was high and inside the fastball. He through pressure Ba off the rush of the plate. And then later no repercussions again. And then later in the game Sagura gets the ball thrown up high, atom gets on based and jt does what jat does. Yep. And then so the ninth inning we bring in Vincent and hits their leadoff hitter. Makes no sense. No, I would have hit Alonzo right at their hearts, got head. That's exactly where I'm going. You hit Alonzo. We're McNeil. Yeah, yeahs working for do I maybe you've got a sentiment where you could hit the crybaby Todd Fraser Jake are at. I can come off the eye out of break his dance called on. They're just such an you know, I love the heartwork a position and I love ray a Muto, but they're just such an unlikable group, from Areata, from the manager on down, on even like area in Chicago. I didn't either. I just kind of find him surly for what he is. I mean, I know we want to say young award, but it's just this just hasn't worked. This has been in the disaster mcfail, error and Clintack. I mean I think they're clueless as far as how to build a team. We fired the scouting director this week and he's he stepped down. Sure he did, yeah, but also so we hired a scouting director to lead our drafts, to lead all the scatting department, when his claim the fame is international signings, Yep alby's Yep Akuna, Johnny State, Sodoye, couple others. Yeah, so we hired this guy who's good for pulling guys from the the are and stuff. Right, draft those players. Yeah, who told him the draft? Mickey, MONIAC, stupid, Cole orbing, stupid. Our best draft picks so far has been Scott Kingerine. That was the second round. Yep. Next Year Spencer Howard, second round pick, Riese Hoskins, later round pick. Yeah, you can't keep missing like that if you're going to build a foundation. You look at these other teams in baseball, I mean the Astros. It seems like they bring somebody up every other week. It's wild. The Red Sox keep reloading with young talent. Even the Yankees. weanks it done. Yankees aren't buying players anymore. They're bringing players up. Yanky Yankees are going to go far, though. They have the same issue we do. No pitching. Yeah, yeah, but they have majority of their home games in the playoffs at home. They'll hit their way. Don't hit their way. Yeah, that's exactly. Do we not have any old fills that have songs that take a play first, like lad and Shit? So that's a bit. Yeah, there, Toronto, it's their lot these. You say wild. Yeah, that's pretty wild. Their last draft pick was holiday. Yeah, even though he's he's he didn't sign. He's going to Penn State, is he? Yeah, yeah's he going to pass? I thought it was going to the Gael Sat Jose. No, pen Steve. That's there. Yeah, well, it does. That doesn't tell you much. He's not going to be a major league player. If he's. Yeah, he's got a bad state. He probably down so outside. You never know. Whatever. I don't know. I'm just so it's a shame my life. My small school even has a couple one. They'll be players. Bobby file, yeah, yeah, rock spars one. Yeah, right there. Sure, check that out. He's judge guys. I don't like them. Yeah, Tom Okay, so it's Mike, but we I've got no that. I've learned to deal with these things. My High School's rest in peace. So, yeah, yeah, Kennedy Kenricks. So we're no longer there. So what are we looking at then, for the filter rest of the season? Start from the top even. Why start from the top down? Get Nick fail out of here. He hasn't won a world series since I was in diapers. Yep, ninety three and then went the bottomore. Made some good trades, you know. choired Adam Jones, Chris Davis, hired...

...buck shoulder and they made the playoffs the year at three got fired. Yep, get rid of Clintac, hire someone who understands that. Nick Paveda, Zack Flynn, vinive alaskay's culrving, whoever else you want throwing your bullpen or not mlb players, and just don't rely on Noah, hector, Narris and Alvarez for your pitching staff. If you hired a new president and then let him make the ultimate decision. If you want to fire Clintac, Gabe, everyone sell the team. Rather, they're not going to sell the team. That sell the team. I actually I want the opposite. I want a blood letting from manager down, and I want I want I want singleton just to say you know what, I've had enough of the bullshit. Games gone and love. Let Clintac and let mcfail stew. The rest of the season is their punishment for this nonsense. But gave you can do it now. Do it now. I've had enough, Gabe. You've you know your positivity and I'm proud of how they battled back back in all this crap. I mean it's frustrating, but it's an insulting as a baseball fan to watch because you watch they don't do so many things they don't do correctly. Yeah, I mean what you know? You're your for hoole hit or is struggling. So the answers to put him in the lead off spot. Yeah, to put so the guy is a sun draws walks. That's that was his reason. So assinine. He's uncomfortable, right, and he's not figuring out what's wrong with his swing. So you drop him down to the lineup. That's conventional baseball wisdom, right, dropping down six, dropping down to seven. You put him in the lead off spot for two weeks. For what could he get? Because he gets two walks again with four strikeouts. I mean, yeah, we usually not in that position. He's getting the walks because of where he's at the lineup, right. Yeah, and he's stuck and he's digressed. I mean you got a guy that was, you know, legit, I think a power threat is first. Would he have the most home runs in baseball the last two years? He's falling off and he's fall he has no confidence up there. He still has twenty, twenty, six, twenty. Yeah, I mean he he has. He completely fallen off. His swing is still therey it's just he has roughs, right, he kind of supping too dead. He's Pat Borough. He's getting his number. Is burl He Shud happer. He's hitting two hundred and thirty five with Harper in front of him Raya Muto behind him. That's not good. Yeah, that's bad. Well, that was started a year now. It's been now. It's all over the place. Yeah, yeah, wells, when you look at it, you look so when the Cutchin got hurt, the offense, that the offense literally just fell. Yeah, right, fell apart, stopped hitting me something, anything. Yeah, it's absurd. How one player meant so much that team. Yep. Well, he set the pace. See, yeah, but now you got, you know, even Harper. Sometimes you see these pictures that are struggling and swinging first pitch every time. And what are you doing? Yeah, what are you doing? Like I think it was this third red game maybe that we lost the regis through. Two pictures out there with EARA's over five, YEP, and we didn't score a single run. Yep. Our other biggest issue is leaving runners in scoring position. That's always been a phillies issue, that they're just been horrible. I mean, but with this pitching staff. I don't care if it's Gabe Kapler, Joejo, already, no one. It's going to be able to win a lot of games with this team, with this pitching staff. If the STU nodds in the front office, don't realize this and tell Middleton spend your stupid money on pitching, we're not going to win anything, no matter who's in charge or who's WHO's the manager. All right, some strong words, blood letting and yeah, blood everybody. So, if they cut, cut, if they fired deep. Yeah, now, who's in a room? Popop, I don't cares. Pop Up. Take over the rest season, take over now. I don't really care. It's going to be everyone's love child. Who they want it from the beginning, dusty Botham, just because he bunched won a bunch of Mierley Championships. Does that do for Baseball, Major League Baseball? Nothing, but it's going to be it would be him, all right. I never understood why everyone that's one of him. And then in the alde developed two guys. Right then the offseason, you're going to have your pick, right, you can have madden, you can have sosha. There's a bunch of guys that will be interested in managing this team. Who? Also, there was another big name. It was Joe Girardi. You're it. I'd give George Tardi a calling a heartbeat. Wasn't social throat out there did? Yeah, social, social and less John Him. Unless John Middleton decides to move the team to Chicago, Joe Girardi will not be the manager. Freak you, Tardi, give job. Get Joe Madden a call. Joe Mann's a local guy. He's just won a world series the COBS. He's proven that he can win with it. But all the old St all the old school baseball people are going to hate Joe Madden more than gay because the analytics. Yeah, but it leaves. This is not as extreme. I feel. Anthony Rizzo A leadoff hitter. Come on now, yeah, you know, you make a good point. You make a good point. I'd rather go after dodgers coach, Houston coach for keep it Allico reaching coming there, bringing Jim Toby as the hitting coach next year. If gape still here, that should be Charlie's recommendation. When he walks out the door goes back to retirement. Give this team Jim Tomby and see what happens? All Right, I was gonna spend a little time ripping on Dec we're out of and you're out on the fields. Obviously I'm someone to...

...watch on I am to unfortunately, see I outly torture. We were watching him last night and I'm like, yeah, doing, wasted my time. I'll be out now. Great, honestly, to to for two then D as I remember all offseason, go get D has, go get ds. All the mets got them. Where are we doing? How many games does he blown? True, he still young. He's got us at least four wins. That's true. He's still young, though he's twenty five. Kild throws smoke. I still you know, the mets should be they would be crazy to die. They gotta. He's gonna be their closer for the future. But yeah, and the other four mess to the other two teams when you got the sixers to look forward to. But I drove in on the way here, strangely enough, one of the car dealerships had a sign flashing. I won't mention which one because they're not sponsoring us, but go flyers displayed, and I'm thinking all rights the day before the Eagles opener we gotta go fly. Probably a cowboys fan of it, I guess. I mean I could. I could give a rats ass about hockey. You know, when they're good I'm into it. They've been bad and such an afterthought for so long. Maybe I have no interest. If I can go to a game this year, be great. I'll probably watch five. Maybe that's the XGM's new job now is the car dealership. There you go, hextalls out of a job. So yeah, well, I'm saying maybe both. The card dealer chief. Now he went back to Canada. I'm sure we'RE JERSEY. Carter heart has to battle for the number one job. Ridiculous. What what is that? Come on, you don't like Moose, Moos Elliott? Come on, he's it's these a future in this team. That's see. That's the thing. I couldn't agree more. I don't even watch and I've been following and I see the nonsense and I'm like, good God, what are they doing? They're gonna ruin it. He could be Biboski two if they do this right. You know, you got to give him the key. She got a young team, no expectation. What are you gonna fight for? The seven spot? If you put alien in there, screw that kid. Play mediacorpy projection things. The last night someone said, I forget who tweeted, but flyers ninety points. There's no chance. I want to know what that dudes on because I want some because that's outrageous. That's totally outrageous. They'll be lucky they have eighty points. Yeah, you know what's outrageous? We just spent two minutes talking about Flyers Hock, all right, and I think we're going to go out on a hockey note then with the Eagle starting. We can't do that. Home Open it tomorrow. Big Win tomorrow, big win tomorrow. Yeah, I'll sit down there, tail gate, you going down the top? Me Down there. Tellgate, I'll be looking for Mike Scott in the hive. Dow, you're got ahead over there. I'm going to try to find the fourth and Joeing guys that he stopping by there. I don't think he's going. He's got other people he's going with. DANSTER'S gonna be down there tomorrow too. Who Lenny Dixter? I hope he doesn't think on the Bagel Man's light. Me Back of boss. I better stay away. Yeah, I think there's there's some type of redskins rarely going on. A told me and Joe's it's got. That's that's what to that. I think. Is that today than I was today and I saw they were getting ripped apart about it. They really we're business day off the Washington redskins. Reach out of them, will pay you for your back hole or whatever. And they were getting like Frat. Same people are going to show up. I'm like this, that rageous. Nice. Let the business make their money. All right. Hey, Mr Engineer, I'm going to a concert tonight. Run the jewels and Chevy metal. So you're going to run the jewels?
