Disgusted by it that's a little eye to die hard game like discussed traders like him how global call to accomplish so I have asked a question and all the way and and we go you put up a poll I did. At a week ago yes and in the course the polls very simple the Christmas lights. Of the responses are it was a way too soon yes no Santa or Scrooge. 3000 votes are ready while 68% say yes too soon enough 16% say no twelve say Santa and forces on this will continue and each guest will be asked this bill. Let's see what advice does yes none out this this. I yearly question to people when you when you start jerk or Holland your Christmas holiday season that's a fair question and I think if I'm being honest about it one of the reasons I'm rebelling. Because once the Christmas lights. Around and it's really cold yes or you're not Conan on the golf course. Now and I'm not ready to deal with that reality that is that's over here we've cut to the bank and that's it probably more than anything out because once you cross that line a ball in our right but I'm not I. I don't give. Yet okay hold hope we're bigger and actually. Alter ego. Right so let's as I hold onto that we need to talk about any. Eight other player or another person because I'm certainly not a player. That is holding on to things a little too tightly. It was Monday night in Denver were eligible Murray scored 48 points in win over the Celtics and as time expired he hoisted up a three to get to fifty or 51. And Larry Irving was insulted beyond belief. I'd toss the ball into the stands and this is what he had to say after the game this was Monday Monday night. Well there's room for. It was a restless 125000 dollar on the ball stands understandably so he should do that might know somebody hurt somebody correct so we thought that would be the end of no the very next pay cut every Irving was still talking about just some mature. Okay that had to be two days he talked about you think right to be done. All hold our smoky. Another day another Kyra discussion about what happened Monday night. Obviously I'm Watson and Watson player in the game on the licensees including the ball and and so they're still playing just go after something like that includes fifty points is being given you within regulation to get through you know. Take as a manager for you don't think it's a fifty point. Coincidence. Officers shot and not talking go like this isn't it doesn't matter such as the traditionally this is immature so. While three days in a row three days and were unbelievable. So now but wait it would have been in regulation and awarded -- I wanted to play tomorrow regulation were valued or or the earth. So I mean I think that I I think that what he's saying is the regular course of play right right right then all of us trying at the end but man we we want to bomb a little bit you know a while our our good friend should be able to gain there with us on woman cross Wednesday. Had some great points with you Michael junior on first and last.

On your way to the gym ides why you pay next time you're at the end of the game you're drew one up record the clock is running down a carrier resumed Friday. Let's just start launching up shots off. Every game from now on for the Celtics division is someone trying to drain a three wood Kyra. And what is you that three entire career is faced the ballpark I don't use that money will vet what you're doing however you want to pay you for play it if you will do this. For me to carrier ring -- has just gotten ridiculous I'd take one day of comments I can understand after the game your little salty the next day someone asked you about it but two days later I mean are we supposed to give you that cliche like we're moving on to whatever next team we're supposed to play. Something that Toronto Phoenix and people are tweeting rather ask him a question I don't mean answered the third day after I mean coma all and do food now even if you thought. Even if you're out there thinking that was a petty move budget Ballmer to do it. Three days like. During this season while your playing I mean come on let's. Oh get over all Martin's.

It'll just breathe right I would wait I'm of the Manger. Don't wish away time you know like Christmas so come let's let's let's enjoy Thanksgiving let's enjoy the colors of the fall in autumn and celebrating ground in origin and and those colors and we'll get to the reds than greens when we get into December. Probably about the only ones over in a browser we tried celebrating the browns and they fired you have you can't talk music or did you mean and how they column one column rational and reasonable smoke and intelligent all I hate quarterbacks this is one of the reasons and they called me in the moment but only in the normal day wow and I just want you know you had me you know so anyway. We monologue and let's do this thing would Dez Bryant your thoughts on says to me I think it's the perfect marriage because. This is a team that's gonna scores on a points anyway there's not a lot of downside for them there's not a lot of rest but the certainly seems to be a potential really big reward your right. Yeah I mean I'm absolutely loved the movie and let that take away the narrative of like everyone thinks that is this huge problems. Dead only became really animated on the sidelines because they were they were losing and you wouldn't get the ball that's not going to be an issue a distinct you know you we are in this golden era right now of a multiplicity and matchup in the NFL in the teams that are getting. Be really successful down the stretch offensively and into the playoffs you better have a guy that can get advantages with Mike comes the match at the saint through they have Tamara and Mike Thomas and so when you look at OK okay you're third match -- bring out of Ben Watson and or you know electric once missed what we find a better deserter sports match up for us and because its debt and so there's always had to be 118 for the cowboys for a long time now we come into this situation we're gonna be matchup number you know for. He's aware route most of forced deep deep and so yeah I love the move to that I also look to move forward Drew Brees is deep desk. Ever when it comes the ball placement and I'm not talking accuracy and you can make an argument I'm talking all places where he can run out to the receiver and placed the ball where he wants it I guess any. He does that when it really and we got a desk today it's his body to receivers did Jimmy Graham in the Marcus Colston and Mike Thompson went dead. A big body 6220 pound receiver into the ball placement but he's gonna be able to go to dead at the big frame is going to be impact why love love to move for the saints. Started there are a lot in the shell Pennzoil performance like Dan of the state the best team of football. And yeah I mean yes and I'll say it because this and you guys will love this at least I know two of the three guys below that of the saints couple years ago made the decision we are cannot revamped their roster and you know we can we talk about breezing Camaro and Mike Thomas all the time how special those count so there's no doubt about it but it took the first round pick direct rent ticker right tackle that it. Stayed inside very war bird in free agency had a big right guard hit. They trade away Jimmy Graham the tight end and hit prime of his career for Max Unger hit. Hundred seats at left guard another first round. Draft pick and the line and then they took him Jordan in the first round or NATO blank into the first rounder. They need to Davenport is a first on her and her defense of consciously built this team to be inside out and dominate on both sides of the ball and for those reasons they're gonna be really difficult moving toward because they're offensive and defensive lines are so good allows all the other talent around them to kind of shine in those moments. I'm very extremist an amazingly true because the other side as a browns missing a whole other draft picks and you see it's getting out all of a draft pick it's amazing what that can do. Speaking of missing on some things let's look at the cowboys a lot of talk about the cowboys at the latest loss against Tennessee. They may get British Dez Bryant so their hurt at the receiver position as well. People think if Scott Linehan and they go to Jason Garrett Troy Aikman comes out and says it's higher than that they have to restructure everything if you order stark to. Fixed the Dallas Cowboys today how how would you go about doing. Yeah I mean it's true it probably on the something in me you know you've you've been mediocre for the last fifteen years or so do organizations we've got to certainly look at that does not say this about in just speak on their offense and and lending and Garrett can't come I'd like Scott Linehan incredibly successful. Play caller but you know if you look at where we are what football right now I I'll go back to like these teams that are good they have play caller that I understand match at ten and how to use. Horizontal stretch in motion and whatnot and so you. Dave Dave Dave are in this offense where everything stagnant and they just go pay your Ugoh wind you know it's that second five you should win on this planet and you know you've got clay court agreed in Sean Paige ten and Maggie and charming Bader. Helping those guys get open on those slant to the short end you know just stare at dirt dirt taking these maybe quote unquote lesser players in making them better by the way the post saying McCain in seeking teamed up and so I don't see get out of the cowboys and so you know scheme wise it's just a dirt dirt not equipped. To play a modern day football in the NFL and so certainly have to look at you know what they're doing offensively angle we gotta get a guy who can group can kind of be in that waved and then. But since I know people are split on ducked press got I don't believe that actress god is going to be a guy that you can carry your franchise the next decade I'll say this since. It's into digging at Tony seventeen. The deck press got you know after that 2016 year what he had tons of you know he had a Great Wall of China in front of him blocking. And since the beginning of 270 only four quarterbacks have less touchdown passes and then market Mario. Eli Manning. Blake portals and James Swanson. That's our guys that are present day starters in the NFL four of them had less touchdown passes intact so if you're sitting there and Jerry Jones is coming out they come to extend this guy on only what. Where would we leave you saying he's not playing. Winning football right now and so that beside there is a lot of issues going on there. There certainly aren't just this is general lost he joins us the thing that's amazing to me is that Jerry would squat there and say it it's almost like Quetta or about trying to improve your play. You're good where you are and that can't be the message. Yeah I guess there's he has thirty year I mean there's so many different ways you can manage them if you go okay we are we still light Kim would continue to see what we have. You'll need at the same thing of oh I can't imagine what it's like to be as a player can I never experienced this as a player in my twelve years I never experienced on OK yeah and I'm good. I don't get that could microchip and in general manager of Kemal and so I'm I'm getting paid so there's so many different ways you can handle. Okay what do we truly have moving forward you don't have to come out and extend them let alone say it so I just. I don't understand the business practice bind it. And Dan are a lot Steve former NFL quarterback when this. On the shell Pennzoil performance line. And dance like there's a pretty strong words yesterday indefensible former teammate of yours. And Matthew Stafford obviously alliance season has been what it's been at this point the Matthew Stafford been their for a long time what drove you to finally speak out about a guy you shared a locker room with. Well I mean the Bob honest to god part of it and there's no doubt he's my friend you know and so I've spent a ton atomic and his family I get out but I'm also very honest person as well and that you played get a sheet he should be cheating and no he's had some interceptions this year I also look at the stats that during the wait we're making we're we're gonna -- guys get fifteen touchdowns and six picks the reality is this there's three and five. They'd probably be one and 70 winning without him. And they've got. How many playmakers on their team do they really tablet difference makers you know they've got Marvin Jones is a good offensive player they're often find an up and down and the downs have been very ugly and they've got seriously deep center difference makers. I went back it looked at it because you know people on the tour Killen Matt you missed it stinks this and that. Since he was drafted in 2009 they've been going into last year they did directed 63 guys. In the draft each of them has become an actual post eight out of sixty series. Five of them don't even played the alliance anymore. So lake. I don't wanna city I'm tired of people going to stick to this person. Find me all the really good quarterback and a really good teams in the NFL arm of the find you the fourth five options that they have to distribute the ball to. On the side you'll probably defense that's in the top half of the league and so he we'd keep. The people of Detroit as passionate they guarded as rightfully passionate and they are they placed too much blame on Matt do you and it stays organizational thing that's going OK how we have we truly truly equipped and have we truly supported him in totality. And the numbers say we haven't even come close to that. Now last thing thing let's look at tonight's game last couple of Thursday's including last Thursday have been really really some stinker tonight. Carolina Pittsburg Pittsburg on a four game winning streak Carolina three game winning streak what are your keys in this game. Yeah I mean for Pittsburgh we continually to talk about Conor and they'd be in big Ben's first serve at their defense has really turned it around I mean and it earned this win streak or defense is its top two or three in the NFL a lot of stuff and I are tied to Joseph hated playing so well so it's gonna take this desperate defense going against it the Carolina offense that norv Turner's been remarkable listening to the best you know first down yards per carry team in the league average five point one yards a carry on first down and it's really they're doing it with McCaffery Kim -- and then at receiver DJ Moore that's their top three daughters is McCaffrey can you need DJ Moore and so horizontal stretched their net Norv Turner brought has been great and so. You know who wins first down between Carolina own the Pittsburgh. You don't forget that the fourth quarter as sick again which I anticipate I think on Carolina they've been really good in the fourth quarter can't been sensational so you know and it did turn overturn a big deal and can Carolina gets to get into the fourth quarter meditate and just because we can't displayed on the stretched. But Daniel brilliant and let me just let me just end this where we started what Drew Brees is the ball placement Dan Orlovsky is to holiday decorations while there you go. I draw a lot of that Dan back from try I wanna leave you Mike and I wanna leave you with this we open Stuckey had all day long. Yeah you see what I did have a 4 hours every morning Dan every morning and it was dead and by December and you're gonna get tired edit never never so that part is true they will never you know food banks and different but yes. You're wonderful sane person dampens an angry Al. Call me elf one more time on board one more time. It was Dan dame games. He wants and I thought that you can think discouraged no they call me in the moment like that well my kids or call me in the moments earlier and admit being there didn't that is. Pace in the moment itself doesn't quite roll off the saga but the last him we talk I am looking forward to this game and Libya re bigger game. Now focusing on that Pittsburgh defense to his having an important part of this and Carolina this is a team that for a long time was defined by this idea that Thomas Davis and we'll keep clear of the center of a defense that. Though it did gentlemen built from the inside out when he was there is similarly to the way Dan talk right out. Our New Orleans but now they've got this great compliment of skill players on often misses finally starting to go the direction they wanted to last year. The teams that are making that are run our our pitch verbal what they've done and New Orleans and what's been the biggest reason for ballclub defense yup defense to this side of the ball started to pick it up. So on the watch tonight we always talk about the matchups inside the match ups. That are key to have finding out who wins a game paralyzed when the best teams running the ball Christa McCaffrey out. The Steelers are not good at stopping the run soft Trish McCaffrey gets loose it could be a very very long night for the Pittsburgh Steelers more deceptive hurdles will do it or did you just don't get cost from Denver into it because that was a face plant in Dorado or Cabrera and McCaffrey good lacrosse not so much.

Lot of rule fall or about their Mandela yourself final and I don't do there are little guys are blue pill guy somewhere I don't I'm and say I woke. So. So so I'm not saying you have I'm using for me it's too soon that's all practice and I are committed to Redding Greenville to beta. All right our yard Crist I got you a C Richard and OK do we know what the giants are doing by the way the giants yet the judge had a bit lost out by a week when Kyle letter got to rules on script with a loss of million to practice. Very hard to do but they did lose by a week. Our and then pat Shermer the giants head coach came out and said something that we all thought was very interesting because we're not sure why it had to be said. There was Hatcher were basically saying he had a conversation with the army. I spoke to Eli couple times this weekend and explain Eli that he's gonna start Monday. I also explain Eli that. Everybody needs to play better and as we go through this. You know it's important that we're not almost in these games we do we have to do to get it over the top and win football games. There's a lot to get into it yeah there there is Eli Manning has started approximately 875000. Games in the NFL. Learn when are we starting now is this a week to week thing that patch Shermer is gonna have to talk with him and say your starting this week. I mean we know at some point he won't be starting for the giants but that's an awful lot of talk to him a couple of times and told him he'd be starting I'd. Lord imagine that would be assumed until you tell him he's not starting any more for as much as he's played this late. One would think I think what apparently at this point and you know you don't know how often that's getting asked around there in the building how much that comes up. With the media around there again some things happen locally but. In general use Big Easy way to diffuse that would just be to not address it because by bringing it up you give credence to what everybody's already thinking and now you open up the floodgates to conversations like this. Eight yes all to me I think this is the equivalent of priming the pop. He has a conversation with the Eli about what he's going to do because I believe pretty soon he's gonna have a covers it would be lie about something else he's going to do witches. We're gonna such doubts when you think he needs to ease into that. I mean that that he needs to do or do you think the pump needs priming you for something like apparently he feels that does because that's what's gonna happen that's what's gonna happen because to me either like you said. Eli started except that one game in Oakland last year which was went completely backwards and they the backlash was awful on the came back from a mean you are starting is an assumed thing right and you don't have to tell someone says some thing unless your preparing himself for the next conversation which is it's not a personal thing you know. We were coming off a bye week where. I don't know what would have been more of a conversation do we think about how letter giving some snaps if he hadn't had this sort of off the field transgressions absolutely like that could be part of why pat charmer come out reaffirming. You I'm Manning's place the starter because maybe they were getting closer internally. But now there's no way you could come out right after that it happened and darkest in the next game exactly as archer that's exactly what it is and an NFL live yesterday I did aggressive on or find insider who's on of humans were for many many years covering the Johnson Tedy Bruschi. Sort of re reading the tea leaves the same way we are. To come out and say Eli has to play that I've told you IDS to play that if you set this up as Eli is not performing. And I think it's easier for the fan base to swallow than. Okay were out of it we're just conceal like down and bring in you know whoever the next guy might be trying to understand this. Right because did. Did Eli I have to go win and find out he was the starter. Is that what yeah he had he had and I love our guy and let him know he would be the start out of why would there be a quest on Monday. On Monday right he's been the starter for every game but one since the middle of 2000 force a rise that an issue yeah I think surely is handling this right because he's he's raising the issue can you go something my right arm back you know I'm also letting you know in an indirect way that one of these days you're gonna come in here and you're not going to be this. See there you go and the other thing that's Anderson there's the other back half of what Shermer said and they sort of alluded to it. I let Eli no we can't just be in these schemes. We need to win these game the other moral victories here I mean but again I go back to that last game where Eli did put themselves in a position to win or tie the game. With a two point conversion that wind O'Dell's hands out and Modell didn't catch it right exactly known no doubt about that but overall we see where this is going everywhere getting in the end of Eli Manning I it's. I think it's pretty obvious to everyone now that the question next year will be in the draft that bad that high pick it looks like they're well there's going to be a quarterback worthy at that. Positioned to take a quarterback and how is that going to work would be freeagent how would you go about that so. I do think it's a more I didn't think Eli would get replaced him now I thought if there was gonna happen what happened in the last few weeks of the season but it certainly seems like it is gearing up for that. Not the color light is going to be the answer for this team but to see what you have in him and given some light snapped or. Becomes exactly what we're trying to do last Cilic and Matt did you wasn't that for a often reasoning. He was just bad MacKey knew he was a guy that was sort of a caricature of a code to the slicked back hair we all like to make fun of a guy who didn't have a great track record around there wasn't someone that was as well like pet sure is new and he's the guy that's going to be there you like the mayor Phillies not going to acts pat Cheryl Burke. After one year so you're gonna have to deal with him now and he's looking at this much the same way they were saying last year wanna find out if we've got would geno Smith wanna find out we've got would Davis Webb who we heard all the rumblings out earlier about how he can be the quarterback. To take over for Eli Manning. Three hours late hair and they cut him entry after training camp this year. Maybe we're getting that seems spot now what pat charmer you're gonna have to allow him to do this. Point and when we go down this road on what you brought up last year junior we need to go revisit what happened last year because. That was a failure are across so many levels in the way the giants handled that. And reacted to that mean let's because there was no way Ben Mack adieu was going all right let's we can also got that right there's no way that. They just got a one day lessons that you know what. Eli has been here forever screw that I'm a bench him and I'm throwing geno Smith there's no way that went down. The gym at the time juries had to sign off and I'm. So what's certain that I believe ownership had to be aware of it too because of what Eli is meant to that franchise and then the backlash. Was so strong. And steele's performance was so not good that they have going way back the other way. And Ben became sort of a fall guy now. I asked Annika. To me some of that was the fact that I don't think anybody felt geno Smith who's going to be now back in the future that New York Giants all. Why are you benching this guy in breaking this streak for someone who is not going to be your quarterback. That statistic though it was the streak. Yeah yeah charmer comport directly and thank Ben back to last year and we're streak and no longer a thing because that's gonna make whenever this transition happens a much easier process for them. Because there was an attachment to that streak and there was a lack of willingness on ownership part two in power band that could do to make that decision because they knew it was gonna be unpopular because that streak now that you don't have that you Republicans already kind of turning on Eli Manning. And the other thing that's interesting there. And we have put this in this conversation. It would have made much more sense to do this last year and stick with that because of what we thought was coming in the draft quarterbacks in Madrid were down five quarterbacks taken in the first round for taken in the first ten. In the history of the draft that is not the case going into this year's draft where a lot of those. Up players in college that are considered worthy of being a top ten pick or all defensive players there it's not a quarterback rich draft so if you do it this year. You're really doing it a yearly based on what we thought the drop potential wasn't lest they believe there's one guy out there that can do it. I don't know that guy's going to be coming in the draft order. Well well we're seeing your name is Justin Herbert and go back to school are doing has been backed his back and Ohio today and go back door handle mentally what their pocket Missouri. Reluctant to dial are your talented but this season gay attitude he's been through Brooke how three pick in the draft we're talking here to talk about all he's obviously has to go back he's on a true software has to play one more year and then he'll be. The number one pick in next year so the year you need do here you're you're really critical for quarterback. You wanna talk about the magnifying the positioned her to possibly reach for one in one of the top picks in less one of these guys. Is really standing out to examine their grating system let's not wait till their shorts and a T shirt and decide all the sudden oh yeah this is the top draft choice you know so when this. Whenever this happened it it is inevitable. When it comes we need to put in the proper perspective of why it's happening this year why that didn't happen last year. And how that may have messed up the giants because of the plan they had going for for this year I totally didn't work. And I want to thank you coming up will does Bryant out do his defect or placement. And will we see a record contract this winter that's all next in. Brooke yet.

Guys you know drove by now. Thursday book and it you got a hot take you throw book get on the yen. Crank that thing up let's do it do it aren't good. Start it off track Dez Bryant won't finish the season. With more touchdowns than Maurice Cooper duplicate. I'm not give a book and a tell you why because Harry Cooper is the only option relief for the Dallas Cowboys in terms of receiving threat. All the respect cool Beasley La idea but you know what I'm saying. And then. Basically. Dez is going to be option three or four behind my Thomas Alva Tamara. And maybe even Benjamin Watson. For drew he's held a third or fourth option which makes him. Very difficult to defend but I I don't see it I think a march gonna get fed more. Booked yet while absolutely if you look at all of the sudden thing dec Prescott's contributes are to be this touchdown throwing mania quarterback. Don't see it who don't I I'm just saying he's going to be the one guy that they're gonna throw the ball to but I you're 2%. I just I'm talking about my booking a stock and your inner they wiggle. Drew Brees whips and now I'm not saying that does is going to be the number one priority to get the N double when you buy that ends on tonight's big target there. In a good way more opportunity in my opinion because the passing game the cowboys. Is not that. Don't like we always say your fancy you booked this because like we saved their seat you go for the better offenses in the save the mentally better offense you have more tickets to this lottery and they're going to give. Dez shots and chances he's going to be opened because everyone else. It's so good book I want to hear it. Expects. Luke Walton will not be the coach of the lakers next year book. La lakers are 31 by the waist and the magic while meeting. That's a great state due to magic wall. About to say I admit I needed a moment to process that I was very well an article I still think they're gonna finish 78 or nine. And to me that's about what the expectation is but what or magic thing. I still think he's going to be the coach I suing is going to be that you're not gonna I'm not poking. I'm not a book and either because remember when Steve Kerr won one of his many you know coach of the year awards and when he wasn't there for the entire season. Luke Walton was there and actually won more games that year and Steve Kerr did is that coach of the Golden State Warriors I think look is a good coach. And I think they'll figure this thing out. Bob's a yacht I and I don't wanna see him gone yeah I'm a marketable. I'm not booking this one only because it. I'm confident the lakers does not waver music and I don't Johnson and bring them here if they're that separates people who Blogspot but they're gonna be 23 of the four seeds a Luke Walton still product candidate for coach of the year that'll Arrigo. Love we got our dear god guys the cowboys will never win another Super Bowl would Jerry Jones and charged idea Booker. I'm gonna book that lists and I'm gonna buy. Not even recent history back to 96 what they've been basically a 500 team. And certainly not with the current team they have right now they're gonna have to be some massive changes and they haven't proven. Jerry Jones hasn't proven that they can make the right moves right now so I'm not commissioners at oh yeah I think again happened so I'll book and that. I have the book that as well for variety Hillary's problem. But in 96 since 96. The so yeah I'm booked him that they're not there when momentary as the general manager.

Holy smokes. I'm gonna say that that that's too much of a need packets are ominous sound applicant that I don't think I'd love to see it I think they'll be awesome to see. But I don't think it's gonna happen well in the middle their in between them is number two the sincere level six expression in North Carolina right like right this is what it's like to be the Tar Heels you got one of the top. Two players in the country which is great but your archrival has three of the top four and oh by the way the top four ranked players in this next draft are all freshman and where we just continue. Down that road a lot of minutes so that's the way it works around here and basketball and I would do couple coupled with the talent of these guys have when you have the success that we think this team is going to have I think there's a very real chance this could happen we had Janeiro.
