Pay its break here really appreciate you listening about to get some podcast excellence is presented by less Schwab tires doing the right thing since 1952. Seventy. This is durden spraying it there was an incredible feeling good. You always feel the Boston. Our retirement toxin that was above and I heard enough shelters and that definitely. What sandy Dirk Johnson and Brendan spray this. Maybe the most deadly. Cornerback Brandon Marshall is the played with throughout the course of his NFL career somebody that we'll be able to somehow get in the hope all the way that he wants and situation with the game at two year twelve. We're dollar deal Brandon Marshall is going to be in here. Dry dirt and spray on tanning. It is well hello to enrich city it is time for nerds break here on 1080 the fan brand it's great alongside any dirt Johns then. This is one of those days for me dirt it's one of those days where. Most of the time I had some odd 1000000%. And today I'm a little more excited because we have. Some good begins to get oh OK today is little more Mayan from one Brandon Sprague now three hour I don't know that's the right way to put it is that insinuate that I'm not buying in every day most days you mail it in today you're not male and it mailing and and you just have shows it's as simple as this folks don't let anybody tell you different. It's as simple as you just have days where the topics are little more juicy for you a little more fired up to talk about a yes cutting you are some of the other half your you have a lot of Irish reports pants are a little tighter today than they are on most days yes considering this time wait years do. It's it's not easy to find it tight sports dance day this time ironing this started last night. And did start last night yeah we and our sports fans to try and tie on Twitter last night. Well. It yeah did there there is quite quite Twitter feed to happen last night made that there was quite the Twitter thread and it was a thanked our Fareed that's a listeners they don't have Twitter just did. Get their two cents on that Malcolm let him know what we were tweaking what we mean by that I even woke up this morning and there were still more tweets coming into the Twitter feed and I had I kept to go on for like 2 hours this morning oh I know I had to turn to her off for notification from I've found. And look. The violence is that not bothered me was I did you imagine waking up today. I thought the suspect imagine waking up today. Nice warm bed and the body's sore. And you go yeah. I dropped 58 points yesterday. We lost. Emmett that would be a crappy feeling welcome to Russell Westbrook slice I love the fact that he scored 58 they didn't win and that's the vindication he's not the MVP like how many of those hot tasty DC last night I think are a couple 58 points can't even win the bond game not my MVP ball on. We just gonna boo boos born fifty points he was actually really freaky and efficient last night to score fifty want why is he one. Or 85858. Point did you see the stat line with him last night I'll bring -- now why did I mean I was watching along and felt like he was -- he was 21 to 3930 -- a lot of shots but I think Oviedo 39 shots and he missed eighteen of homes or yes but he missed every one in clutch time when that and I needed him to score wanted when they actually needed him to score one with -- him in the first three quarters they lose the game by thirty now those other 58 are important they needed that 61 from -- they only had two other guys in double figures all the people at sixteen cantor on eleven the coming minutes played they didn't make shots I never saw the ball they took 85 shots the team was 85 minus 39 I don't know about a math 4646. Of the team took more shots than did -- recovery mystical like he played 36 minutes he scored fifty employees 36 million DA points in 36 minutes I'd like why -- we always crap on that well he's kind of is anyone of those players he's in a lose lose in reality if he does that anybody who's he -- he's a ball -- that nobody can play with if they win any it's a troubled double. Well he's still not that great TD wanted to leave him yet to send a lose lose situation we are animate like we got in this two weeks ago with Millard in my column where people were arguing Damon CJ were ball logs in they were shooting too much in the report was very simple of who else do you want to shoot the basketball it's not easy what you want me fired on Larry answer to a Meyers Leonard takes twelve shots a game when Al farouq Aminu put up fifteen shots a game like no I don't mind them being ball hogs I'd rather have them shoot. Than anybody else on the roster as it the same thing about Westbrook. And what you re what Roberson spot up from three all night 'cause he's got to be open Roberson is terrible for the Bremer you what you want him jacking up 18 footers all evening you went in to take twelve shots a game like. Yes 39 shots as a lot he was pretty damn efficient he scored 58 points and it wasn't his fault that they lost that game yeah I Justin. Believe he is one of those p.s the player he's one of the players in sports where you may have this in the NFL. Tony Romo had this you know Tony role being released tomorrow potentially what I but I probably more tomorrow but I Tony wrong lines for a long time almost a lose lose. Like if he lost a game he's not a franchise guy if you cross in the playoffs well who cares you made the playoffs that's not good enough yet you just made the playoffs he got to make around in the plan on the second row are you proud of that Sony it's just proves you're not as clutch is the other quarterbacks in the adults like. Some of these athletes we label them in a lose lose situations and others for whatever reason. We tend to get passes to and Netscape by. Yeah yeah I did the blaze is now because senator twice last week to be alas there is now is that that game of the ball to center in the neck may of course be a last night and did the exclamation points of those are great quality wins do make me chuckle a little bit. 'cause I just don't think the other lasers I just don't even the thunderous academic teams are not that good of a TV if you boards we may look how good ride are this it's like no the thunder not a great rather have a better year than I thought they would considering they lost to rant for nothing in the offseason and that's just not easy to replace a player like that but without Russell Westbrook on that team that's easily a top five lottery picky team there's not a lot of talent for the founders so. Great wins for the blazers all depends I look at it if you wanna call great wins but. Let's act like these are statement wins over top two or three teams in the NBA no no but there's schedule we said this yesterday pointed out look if you if you are going for the eighteen absolutely are. They have the easiest remaining schedule of any of the teams competing in that. I don't wanna tell Dallas out we'll talk a little Dirk today as he joined the mile high club of NBA feats in my opinion 30000 UC a lot of fans or other phone when that happened to. I there was a screen shot of the arena like a lot of people just staring through their films now why don't they were recording it though they know or yeah I would knew enough body you don't. Yes and no I get why people do or die cool like video to have I don't find I go funny daddy on that like we do that way too much or concerts and sporting events I agree on the concerts those videos are all on line. Like I can go watch that YouTube video of Dirks hitting that shot out anytime I want. How often you actually don't watch on your phone like I have sports videos on my phone. Never watch and you have to all people are dig through their phones and that's the reality of what's sporting events and concerts are light somebody text in a. Let's the Connie Westbrook is not MVP because he doesn't make that team win more. Xperia brand in the playoffs it cracks me up. By the way. I was I don't get it and I know I wanna give a little credit to Portland here not to defensively they held them Dallas with the didn't. But let's also recognized. In the two or three games that they've played this year we they played three times this season. Two of the three he hasn't had a triple double. At some point you gotta give not Portland credit. As Westbrook goes up like just the idea of they're able to do something that says go get it Westbrook verses. Letting him go out the flow of what he likes do their 24 and six when he gets a triple doubles 44 and six. It's pretty remarkable and yet how many assists in nine. Yes he BC boy what you saw in ninety his average attached when a bomb only 58 points and now INS as I don't night in it's weird how we've taken Jews that. Kobe kinda had that going for him too and I know a lot of us eco because we're blazer fans but. Kobe was literally the last person to score 58 to gain and lose and lose he did know six against the then bobcats. So you know does that mean that it's not Corey 'cause they lost. Or is that just the reality of where the team was that with Westbrook attends tend to believe. Based on what their roster is. Like all depots not that great of a now lawyer Victor old people's not I really got drafted everybody was salivating over him all seem to sell night. He's a role player at that guy is is slightly better Allen Crabbe who else do you have on that roster yet Leo and it's gonna make buckets and tie guy I forgot to Iowa thank game Thursday I forgot to argument buckets was on there's only had they traded for him he played a lot of minister dynamic buckets Roberson some bonus. -- is cantor among -- hasn't done much as a rookie year Gibson hasn't giving you much she's not really getting -- going to give you much a Gibson in the right fits a good player but just up twelve year old players are hitting for the team to win out and last night was one of the rare exceptions where they were in the first half they couldn't do anything in the second answer to those things are you eat you let west or score 58 if you like you can still in the game because it is now much help on the roster and so obviously compare LeBron stats to Westbrook it's no discussion who should be MVP I if that's an argument for the brought I'm not gonna disagree LeBron the MVP every years on exits prize of best player in the MBA on Westbrook is doing something we haven't seen though in. What fifty years. Sixty years it's been an awfully long time since we've seen what he's due. Added to average a triple double and I it you just watching that game last night in there who is a moment there at the NFL like maybe the blazes are gonna let it slip away they they had a decent sizable lead and let okay see right back into it then. Westbrook missed the three again very so money is similar game to what it was last Thursday or Westbrook had a three pointer to tie it the final seconds. And wasn't able to and end this ablaze I mean what we've we've been telling you know for a week and a half whether you like it or not whether you're rooting for them to lose a hearing for them to win. On the schedule was manageable moving forward their next game is now against Philadelphia. This is a team that if they're playing the way that they should. And they're playing up to their potential they're gonna rattle off someone's your towards the end of the season well and that is some things that lucky we all know where each other our act in our. Armed they are the best position team to make that eight seed in this race between the nuggets in the mavericks and you know throwing candy if you think the kings are continue hang around or using the B two pelicans mackerel the run here with twenty games left. They do have the easiest schedule for that they've won three hero now. And they get Philly on Friday or trust the process they're gonna in four games around an immediate Washington on the eleventh Saturday the next night. Maybe they can win that game but Washington's a pretty damn good basketball team and they create. Kind of some matchup nightmares for Portland I'll tell you what though my in America sports fans got a little tighter the last 55 seconds oh man the owner the lurks fevers real. Won't yeah nobody feels like it's getting like. Hotter and hotter always a bonus we're rising past 101 to like 106 we need to go to las now he he is now sabonis. And then there at the close after the game like he just continues to help himself outlook of the love affair this fan base that close after the game where. I think it was a Richman who wrote the story that he was strike may move in try to get him on the bus again nurture gonna miss the team bus we gonna go back the hotel gas and he basically dropped a go to Newburgh I love Jim he's setting up money for older. Love gym coach I love gym coach loved Jim clutch unbelievable coming up man somebody to his list are two people moon and back. Let's see. Westbrook is Melo if he tried every play. That was for is in my in that room. And somebody else trying to prove in the triple double little bit I think that's what happens is people just aren't as impressed with a triple double anymore for whatever reason but I know that was impressive. It out about by that somebody Texan their fourteen team fourteen win semen out whispered and I agree with that yeah that's terrible and bad basketball team outside of one player we do have a great showed today Joseph Dooley head coach at Florida Gulf Coast will join us. At 230 they won their conference championship. Really excited talk with dunks city head coach Joseph Dooley. At 130 we'll talk with South Dakota State coach Eric Henderson the Jack rabbits punched their ticket to the NCAA tournament yesterday.

Don't forget Joseph Dooley head coach of Florida Gulf Coast on at 230 today. Fired up for those man as the start of our mid major coach interview season when I told you about those interviews of a while back oh your first thought like when I suggested I'm not it'll idea spread rather and that was the one of the dumbest ideas I've ever heard and let away first started doing that as a show I think it was three years ago you're like you don't think that we should get a bunch of no name college coaches on that nobody's ever heard of and bring on a show and I was like. I guess the partnership he does got to let some things billion let me talk hockey every now analogy of a mid major basketball coach John but. I look forward to manage fun and gives you rooting interest come tournament time gas so we've got Joseph Dooley at 230. Florida Gulf Coast and then at 130 Eric can nurse in a South Dakota State that Jack rabbits the Jack rabbits or back end and we launched the Florida Gulf Coast Ron. Three years ago I'm gonna tell that to home when we talked to them so now they're gonna sweet sixteen again just get ready for your welcome Joseph do leak. But last night the blazer game happens the blazers beat the thunder. And they've won three games in a row now and get ready for Philly for Friday to. There's sit right there game and a half back of the eight seed in the west. And you set out a tweet for people are not on Twitter last that is what I read a couple of these tweeters and wrestle thread that went on with co workers have bars this is the hour rather long threat and just yeah I'm just curious to get people's insight on the thread because it was very back and forth. I wanna start your tweaked as it went on all over the place your first tweet in the post game as soon as the blazers one was man. I hope we'll look back on this and regret it. Getting swept in the first round is going to suck and I stand my opinion innings but I don't Stater San Antonio is going to be dove on yet you mean you've no secret on the show what your opinion is on that. Well one can clearly did not agree on that and he said regret winning. Really as MH shake my head for those that don't know. You've been responded. How are they supposed to add more talent to the roster by getting swept in the first round. With then a friend of the station Johns who can't acknowledge Johnny stepped in many stepped in and he said the ams the Mariners missed on Bryce Harper and Strasburg because they won meaningless games when they should have lost. In camp responded to just John come on I was expecting more from you you don't succumb to hash tag fan boy I eggs. I didn't jumped in because I saw this and I thought this is a fun thread we've gone back and forth and yet you jumped in and I responded to him and John without you and I said fan boys want the opposite of losing that's why they're fan boys. Wanting great talent is being Smart. Camden responded. Hoping slash tanking is a loser mentality it's separate sheet from the shepherds and I'll like wool underwear. I actually really liked that want to laugh when I read it now has a rather creative to eat I didn't have room to put L allows so I responded with but your franchise player won't suddenly have the loser mentality dame is not suddenly gonna beat this guy is say well we tanks we're gonna suck now and I wanna be a loser. I say he's not gonna suddenly a loser mentality it's an off year. Only four shepherds in India eight the rest of the sheep and I four I mean Houston San Antonio gold stating Cleveland and that says he then responded pro athletes the sheep. 00 well. Ha ha ha hot take fanned boy alert. I then responded pro athletes are not sheep know. Teams. Absolutely are. You right now is an NBA franchise are sheep you do want a tank you can want the AT shirt. The reality is this ladies and gentlemen the blazers are with the rest of the herd of sheep. There are only four shepherds in the NBA there he relevant. And so basically that's how it ended. And then he continued this morning with third and a bunch of people who followed Gershon. On disagreeing with losing at this. I don't know if I've ever been involved in not this long of a Twitter threaded a very long thread it and there was quite a few responses I enjoyed their blood there's differing opinions out there it's a that we discuss for weeks now on the show that there blazer fans that are onboard with less trying get a top five pick and has blazer fans. And is still adamant about making the eight seed and in there there's a lot of sports opinions that are here right now IE give both sides are all lean one way or all feel certain way but you clearly understand both sides of it. This is one I'm I'm pretty strongly opinion about because I don't understand the benefit of making the playoffs I legitimately do not. Did the culture the mentality stuff just doesn't make any sense to me like because you gold in the top five of the draft. One year after you've been in the playoffs with a similar roster last year or the year before and the year before that. All of a sudden the culture changes in Portland all the sudden the culture the mentality of Damian Miller is no longer going to be a playoff mentality because you goal in the lottery one time. It doesn't make any sense to me like I am I am willing to admit it. That is the blazers taking get a top five pick it's not a guarantee. They can get screwed with the ping pong balls they could draft a guy that doesn't pan out get another no bond later another Meyers Leonard. I readily admit that there is a risk reward here nobody's guaranteeing he could go draft the next Tim Duncan and all of us NBA title contender. But when I weigh the risk reward of a lottery as opposed to the risk reward of making the playoffs. Somebody for the life of me tell me what's the reward of making the playoffs outside of two more home games will. Did this would be my response to what you're saying. I knew I know you people though I agree with you yet. That what's the downside of having a top six pick for it for example sake vs getting the eight seat in losing in the first round. Like what's the downside your roster is gonna stay the same because a Roger everybody and contract he only upside is potentially hitting on a franchise yes changing player or somebody help she was a young guy. Verses if you're the eighth seed you get the fifteenth pick you lose in the first round now you're ascent of the fifteen pick is not what the sixth pick yes. So I just don't see how the downside to getting that vs losing the first round. Is substantially different. Here's the difficult part with in the organization I understand on the outside. You know in. Getting as many ping pong balls as possible but. The only way you can make sure it happens is to shut. Dame and abhors CJ down absolutely it is and for nail all Shea and Terry Stotts and whoever else to go to them. And say we're shutting you down. You risk. Alienating or working off your franchise player yeah saying why are we admitting defeat because the athlete's mentality and has worked him is coming from no doubt the athlete's mentality it's always to believe a first serve so the only way that the team can ensure that their goal is whatever ankle injuries we keep hearing about from Damian. Force him to sit the rest of the seals are shut him down so I don't I'd ain't you look at the schedule you look at the other teams now. Her pitch is coming in on a trade he's trying to prove his worth. And not let the baggage that they handled it and that was with them in Denver so. I think he's playing really well life is turning into a real potential juror may so I don't man I don't know how you would do wit. I think inside the organization what you risk is fracturing the belief. From from your best players of Damian and conceded they understand the frustration in the season will be the first one to tell you that they haven't lived up to expectations by. If you make that move. Now do you fractured the relationship. Between your top player and management. Believing they are not always in on what you have to bring to the table that's the risk. Well I think the other benefit here too big gets lost the first of all the athlete competing thing like that that's a dead horse we need to stop beating that yet the athletes are going to compete I'm not telling him to stop competing it's on free it's our management to dictate. What their future's going to be I'm actually love that they're competing as hard as they have. I've tweeted that I've said that several times I loved everything except for the win just because I'd residing go get a good pick rack right. So I like that from the athlete perspective their mentality continues to be a competitive one. Here is my response though of the benefit of a draft aside from the fact that it's the obvious it's a top five pick and I can't begin to tell you how many teams benefit from that yet whether its ability your drafting and I are using it as a tradable asset what is the OC's track record as a draft scout in the top ten he's got Damon siege it's pretty damn good. Do you not trust him with a top 56 pick him what that could mean for this franchise. Like the whole argument of the knicks how's that working out the Nick's just been a ton of money in free agency to try to win now locked up Carmelo and got forcing his two years ago. They're not tanking they're trying to win. The lakers moved on from a five tie in title winner in Kobe Bryant and that team. And they have been stopped it's all about your management that's the problem with this whole Philly at Philly how bad they are its management. Do you trust Neil Austrian draft I do you could say what you want a free agency getting guys here. I trust me almost say in the draft. And that's why I think it would benefit them. Boy and an end that this sense that you know some meat while Leonard agreed freak for fifteenth overall Texas because they make the plans doesn't mean McCain can agree of course that that's like saying well they got what it was drama agreement the fortieth pick in the draft there's because they got the fortieth victory to get an extreme on three. Your chances skyrocketed winning a difference maker into the top five that those are just simply the fact senator or using mass said. To go on it and get something else in the blaze ice argue this on Twitter all dated the blazers are unique situation where they have a playoff caliber roster in my mind. There's talent on this team you have. What some people deem it as a good a big to a starting point would Damon CJ yeah usually teams like that don't get in the top five that's why this is a unique situation for the for the blazers that they can use that pick. Regroup and retool and be just back next season have we got its. Two Benjamin Albright NFL reporter he's gonna join our show next. Just look at Boston for reference sakes folks Jalen brown is quite contribute for that team to the second team in the east. And they have potentially the number one pick in the draft eating Danny Ainge doesn't want that because of a loser mentality or taking looks matter. Having an asset like that is terrible no you want as much talent as you possibly can't it's the only way you competed your Portland it's the only way in this thing because we don't get free agents. Benjamin all right NFL reporter he'll join the show next we ran out of time there's only a wanna pick up later on the show dirt. Should CJ scum off the bench for the blazers I think is an interesting conversation that at some point we're going to have to have. Just because the reality of the roster we'll Ginn. That a little later but let's talk some NFL. With NFL reporter. Benjamin Albright you can find him on Twitter at Albright NFL. I he's based in Denver 104. Is a 1043 the fan in Denver Benjamin. Workforce while we're sector up here and don't lord I'm so sorry about that now I'm Australian. Parallel allowing us close I'm sorry about that man no you do great when I ordered. And covering the NFL we're glad to get you on that talked about the NFL. Is this kind of Christmas for you as a guy who covers the league entirely in the draft. You know if you're into like a match accused Christmas and ensure. Well bill that leveled an unlimited plan but. Do it between doing the tablet the two fold and not have run a laptop the same time and not sleeping for about a month straight out great. For only a great line or mail I gotta get a medal at the bit the news out of the NFL the day Tony Romo gonna be cut tomorrow and and your based at a Denver IBC's is as we mentioned. I'll go what's the sense there I mean a lot of folks are saying Houston or Denver Houston or Denver likely landing spot what do you think is from all. A potentially is a fitted as the quarterback I think at the Broncos. Well it it has potential Bulldog team that's down to look in other rivers out of the teams back to you myself and Mike Richard and Alice Karabakh channel store about a month. It's between detection and the Broncos at this point Tony kinda light yet you protections it need your division. And eats you know to close to hold their used in Gerry is pushing for Tony to go to Denver gets you out of division and a state. And you know put him over it yet put more misty so I I think that. Personally Democrats would love it I think it John Elway thinks he get it done he has experience bringing it up you know battered region to cement his legacy at the quarterback position before. That's just a question make it work sale price point of about twelve million per year plus incentives two million Prius championship to brilliantly yet. Super Bowl that pitched it and run with it works. Which I would Benjamin Albright NFL reporter covers the draft free agency contributor to Yahoo! fox sports ESP inning co host on 1047 FM a in Denver on Twitter at Albright NFL. What is the what are the Broncos do I know we're still early on in and the Romo release is not till tomorrow and in the according begins. If they wins and a miss on Romo what will the Broncos duet quarterback to be trust Paxton lynch or Trevor simian to go out wide next season. Well that that took place and they'll bring in our bodies just to compete that it will be you know Libya has been. Can type deal and not a pretty big money it looks like a charge account they don't quite Ramon come I hear me. You know pushed me up a little. The idea here lists when they fired the previous coaching staff watered knew when. Was that they brought into quarterback developer so much greater Mike Cole each got an air to develop packed and eventually moved up in the first round last year or. Gary Kubiak I really didn't put much work and attacked and extra rescinded so we should guide. You know some friction with the front office because he didn't do that up to and including playing for a percent you know last do the cease and when it was supposed to have been taxed it would shock. That's part of the reason Gary Kubiak is no long period so. It beat the idea is is that it's packed and job to lose. And didn't know that rolled significant needed to. Yes they don't get Tony rubble. We'll let let's take a look at the quarterbacks in this year's draft and how much the common over the weekend and none of them really set out to media before the come on and then none of allowed me app that come mind. I'll what do you like or dislike about the names that are going in potentially its first round picks in which one are you highest on. Or guys that Google in the first round how and in no particular order let's mr. Penske owns. Shall walk and additional Kaiser. A chance and strength and weaknesses depending on you know what you are looking forward to two different systems. You can look at Robiskie you know a guy who's. Probable pro style friendly quarterback of the botched. They had a limited ultimately arm I've alluded number starts. Probably compares pretty favorably to an eighty Dalton coming out in a little bit he should now let's do merit to make accurate short rows deep ball that great. You get that shot a lot senator Gasol he did Alabama which you know he's gonna want to read Ron Austin chapter Clinton that your great content would look pretty good a couple of years ago nobody turned consent. Additional Kaiser you know he's got a size and tools that the guy who sent 60% passer Notre Dame team or wins for the seated. And he got venture police you're not. Exactly inspiring a lot of confidence in my favorite cat homes at a Texas Tech. And a millionaire lead quarterback you returns tools and what he does occur richter it would gust or. He just footwork issues and had a bad habit of you know not having to be certainly throws and have a pastor to sail on and so. Oh he's got to get some work honest question which one you want. Our own Benjamin Albright cohosts someone before seven net the the fan in Denver and also NFL reporter at large. You when you look at this draft aside from Michael miles Garrett is it's pretty evident I think everybody about gear it's going to Cleveland. Who are some of these guys because it's such a deep draft what's a name that your most interest in watching next year. The most interest in could a couple of guys in that day to decrease. Two years and it really light truck itself or running back marlin Mack. The guy really really like he's secular run because as such. Class attitude I'm Maria a man on an air force wide receiver gently lobbed at him again 62220. Huge hand the person vertical. You know he runs about 640 not only serve to create separation of the body if you look at for a big body wide receiver he's a guy would have I'll. Looking at the number two pick and not that obviously goes the 49ers and they're looking for quarterback this I'm Brian Hoyer to a deal to David that's not a long term solution so. A what are you hearing on the Kirk cousins chatter from from potentially in going to San Francisco and as Kirk cousins worth the number two overall pick. Welker couldn't do settled talks are still ongoing warriors tribal leveraged by the niners not that they didn't already have all the leverage in the dictionary elbit really elaborate smooth they're so they don't have Oprah paper cartons. They can to support a BSE in the what do you walk. It next year. And it turned to that number two overall pick and I are would you entertain a swap will be back in the first. A lot of people don't recognize the value pick swaps are cute the draft value chart moving from. We remember to log back. That's about equivalent of giving up a number five overall pick in terms of the difference in values shock. I I think that would be pretty turbulent to a conditional pick on top of Mitch you know bit if he had at which oh Washington to back quarterback spot they would be ID number two pick in have to draft somebody because they would only have called corn up roster. Dejudder on this one Benjamin. The draft is what five or six weeks away now will we see burning Kooks moved. Will we see branding Kooks moved to prior to the draft. You know it's going to be tough. I can tell you that that they've come the same to come expecting the first round draft pick up I would that they yet. Tucker the titans had turned down a key overall I think it's an overvaluation of cooks. I get these get a young age he's got production behind him which gonna have to get along turbulent place would in the year. So that it's gonna beat Costa. It's going to be tough to move came without with a keen over values is market. Vs what hookah or do you not an order restructuring give him a long term deal. Now there you go good stuff Benjamin Albright 1047. After them. In Denver co host and also NFL reporter him and we really appreciate your work and now we love to catch up with you down the road. Under America aren't good stuff there from Benjamin Albright incredibly busy. Because of the come by in any NFL draft coming in free agency now under way. I'm good stuff from him. One man that was and I mean they're the out linger planning on talking about today but the fact that the saints apparently turned down the eighteenth overall pick from Brandon cooks. Now London make a whole lot of sense to me Tennessee clearly wanted to make a move they offered they turned on the 32 take I I understood that at the end of the first round eighteenth overall picks got some value. On Tennessee Tennessee's anti nick a lock them up long term side and understand that move from Nora yeah we'll talk a little more a little bit more about that in some other NFL's of the 49ers might have acquired a secret weapon. For either team and we haven't even addressed. And all so. One team may have made a big pick up but will matter given the quarterback situation we'll toxin and a both free agency next on offense. NFL free agency news. They won as being pulled in as tomorrow Tony Romo and Phillips talked about that when it's official Tony I love. I'm an application after two we needed bud. Talk about tomorrow when he actually is release and it's why our needs like a three minutes of a segment to just express always gratitude in all of these lists of Tony Romo it's a real homosexual out gap. You're gonna can be romo's second tomorrow are you put your controller rumble. I know it's tabloids as as somebody that grew up bar Roger stop barking and in Troy Aikman. How did here's how the starter in the cal boy 06 no six ranked. I wanna say 0607 and have a stat line maybe of seven knowing his first years starting quarterback amicably as Leon says was littering and littering and 2006 in case he certainly. Provided stability to the position. That hadn't been there since Troy didn't he ask follow Quincy Carter. OK good I think our nose into Carter and if there was a statement in our job was into the same thing after its stop Bakken and rainy wide and then there was a whole laundry list of Jeff Hogan booms and then insert. Tomorrow go boom Soledad franchise quarterbacks it is not easy not easy to find my dad because hello I am I feel sorry stop bloc won two Super Bowls and Aikman won three and if you're franchise quarterback for the cowboys and you don't win any. Miller thirty go in Agilent to thank you for the time but. Now with a guy Jack well I have been super wal my favorite NFL storyline so far today was that builds resigning Tyrod Taylor any restructured Tyrod Taylor's deal and they sent out this like optimistic we are quarterback until we take to Shawn Watson with the tenth pick. But yeah a lot of mock drafts have been taking to Shawn Watson so I just think it's assurance you know maybe T-Mobile can now. And we'll get more from him or maybe they'll have a young player that they give ten pick that they can develop after a year. So buffalo is gonna bring back Tyrod Taylor he's not going anywhere. In other free agency news the niners have been incredibly active thus far that they have it seems like PR gar song he can't sign until Thursday at four. But it seems like he is going to San Francisco and reunited with cows share nannies a big fan cows Cheney in a and league sources are saying at the contract according Chris mortenson. Will pay him sixteen million dollars and per year. So incredibly front loaded contract therefore appear gar song. And then also they signed Brian Hoyer just prior to us cracking the microphone so they've got a backup quarterback or maybe quarterback they can use for a year. Depending on where they go this season in the draft. And now they appear gore saw an end there was one other name. Somebody that they were about to sign a look at out but the niners being incredibly active right. Now yet think our son contracts little surprising how much money he's gonna get out fronts they did have a thousand yards last year Washington is that two years. Now in his career that he's gone over a thousand yards rearm Ameren starting with Peyton Manning and Indianapolis has been around now for nine years so. How much he disliked playing in San Francisco after he claimed he was let go are they didn't re sign him recently and it in the Hoyer mill was one. The niners had to sign a quarterback as he literally don't have any literally do not have a quarterback on the roster Michael and it's gonna lie and get what fifteen million dollars on the open market that's not somebody wanna go out signs so. If it's a case where now I each rape maybe trying to use him and Kirk cousins piece where he he's he's a part of that trade that Sunday where you want to draft a guy with a number two pick. He could start boy your early on an invention later things don't work out in. If you decide to go full tank mode to start Brian Hoyer for sixteen games and not begin a sand Arnold next sees the other and. And wants to bring in the San Francisco. On and how she getting and I did see this from Matt Miller he's actually get a coincidentally be on the show tomorrow. But Matt Miller is out on tour at NFL draft scout he's got a really good pulls the leak and people he talked to at the draft. They say the biggest weapon for the 49ers may not be any acquisition our guy they re sign or bring in. It might have just been Kyle Shanahan as a recruiter. And how many players were ever Shanahan goes players love Kyle Shanahan love his offense like him as a coach. That may end up benefiting salmon Cisco in getting the rebuild. Two or maybe they'll win next year but in two years the right back in the thick of it that's an underrated aspect according to a lot of people in NFL circles yet he's very well. Regarded around the league in in the player impact of guys Lebanon is huge because it's not often you get a player. That's that's a core local franchise quarterback like Kirk cousins it's willing to go to the number two the team has the number two pick in the draft and and that's the situation Kirk cousins and right now we're. He wants to go to San Francisco the only I'm sandy wants to go. A to Chicago or to Cleveland or any of the other teams and top five it's all because a Kyle Shanahan has is success those just getting hinge on finding that franchise quarterback Brian Hoyer. Is a stop gap he is a short term solution he is a one year starter at best we've seen him. I'm the best moments of his career throwing four picks and a playoff game losing with cheap cell. He is what he is that's not a long term solution and that's what how a chance number one priority still is just have to figure out who that quarterback's going to be long term we're. I know the lions signed an offensive tackle paying nine million per year is named just. Escaped I might have to look at mob but it's it's a pretty big signing for them and turning get those front five pretty good. And this move to me is very interesting. The jets. Released Brandon Marshall and the giants have signed Brandon Marshall so we gonna play in the same stadium same city. Two years twelve million dollars and surface level you've got O'Dell Beckham junior sterling Shepperd and now Brandon Marshall who at 33 may be a little old. But to me can still contribute to good ways of battery and an 800 yards lesser considering the jets quarterback situation that is unbelievable so that's a pretty good trio to have here is my only thing with this where's Eli gonna be this year. He looked like absolute need a dog gas in their playoff game use that and is great is that wider she record may be. Let's not get over our skis and assuming that this is suddenly gonna make them a perennial power no. I wanna see Eli Manning this season where he Zach is he's getting up there on the age latter as well and you just wonder Kinney hang on as long as his brother. Is you Tom Brady like or is the end really close. Yet a New York Giants as a passing offense they were seventeen to the NFL last year sold me was OD being Rodman you think of the weapons that they have you think it be lie in in the winning the two Super Bowls they should be higher than now but they were seventeenth last year. That this is not going to be the move the puts them over the top I love that I don't have any negative to say about it I think Brandon Marshall has been one of the more underrated and wide receivers. Any NFL throughout his career he only has any tour or three years his entire career. But he hasn't Donald for a thousand yards one of them last season and it wasn't his fault is because the jets ran out a bunch a dumpster fire quarterbacks and he really hasn't had a chance to play with a serious difference maker in a couple of years there were Cutler at its peak. And Chicago but outside of that really is not had a great quarterback in his career. I know Eli Manning has another piece of play with NASA is difficult for defense is how do you game plan trying to stop all three of those guys. And there's no excuses for Eli Manning this year they improve a little bit the run game he's got three great weapons. They should have a dynamic offense next season. We'll Eli Manning is 36 years old and you forget how old he is too young 36 years old. Is at the same draft Philip Rivers. That's an unbelievable that makes me feel old as I remember that draft now stacked was wasn't the Roethlisberger won as well 2004 draft and a Big Ben Eli Manning Philip Rivers one yeah by the weighted lions offensive tackle they signed was a Ricky Wagner and he's gonna make them out nine million. Per season pretty high for offensive linemen by. Pretty pumped about that what that can do for the Detroit Lions so there's some NFL freeagent nuggets. On an hour to look tea how Portland. Is being begged to do something in sports and it was abundantly clear yesterday. We'll talk with South Dakota State Jack rabbits coach Eric Henderson he'll join us is the Jack rabbit punched their ticket. Dirt joins the 30000. Point club in the NBA. But we'll start with some more NFL we saw a story when we got off the yesterday Adrian Peterson. And his interest in the Seahawks Seattle good flick. For AD that's next during spring back with more on 1080 the fan.
