Dave Clarke:

Welcome, welcome everybody to the weekly power ranking show just to have us today just just dos amigos I am your host BK sizzle Dave Clarke I'm here with the real BK Bob Kelly but essentially the two the two biggest cogs in the machine that is the power rankings because you make them and then I'm funding host a show about it so really we're all we need even though I did offer forever anyone else that wanted to come on everyone's too busy so so

Rob Kelly:

no one ever takes her offers I feel like we have to like you got to Paul we got to pull them on bro that's fine I'm happy I'm happy to be the underdog in this story. And I like

Dave Clarke:

we're gonna bring the main character in and he's and I Bobby and we're going to talk about the fucking probably most difficult Power Rankings I would guess that you've had to make so far it's been a pretty drunk NFL season again like we're gonna hit on a lot of the same themes that we do every week it's it's there's their storylines evolving they might not be the storylines any of us expected but they are definitely interesting narratives to follow along with but this week, especially for the the How typical it's become for the teams that were supposed to win to lose and the teams that were supposed to lose to win for how typical that's become this is still a very atypical weekend so let's get right into it. I see that you have oh my god I scroll all the way No I didn't. I was in our discord chat. I was like I scroll all the way up to last week's Power Rankings and then I was like no, this is this week's they're very good. Here we go. You know what I should actually say last week's Power Rankings let's let's start there. Last week we had 10 Dolphins which we decided on right we landed on the dolphins Yeah, we did seven nine giants eight Seahawks seven Titan 640. Niners five Vikings four cowboys. Three chiefs two bills one Eagles now three chiefs two bills one Eagles has been ever present. Really? It seems like for the for the last few weeks. It hasn't been changed is as have things happen. Listen and find out so let's start off with a bullet right away number 10. Fuck these guys. The Miami Dolphins. Honestly I was I was in for the Cinderella story I was in for the Tyreke Hill and waddle dynamic, wide receiver combo. The two was playing actually playing out of his mind all the rhetoric out of their training camp the offseason was true. And then they stole a game last week from the Chicago Bears. They stole the fucking game. I'm not saying it's their fault. There was a clear grounding call that that to throw the ball right into the ground that wasn't called followed up, followed up almost immediately by a terrible Chase. Claypool pass interference, he was literally hooked around the waist and pulled down on what would have been the biggest catch of the game. But the biggest the biggest throw of the game, or the biggest yards of the game. It was a game where Justin fields showed out, like absolutely just started all over the fucking field. And the rest took that from him. The rest took his fucking Breakout game from him. And I know it's not the dolphins fault, but by proxy, they're just gonna have to grin and bear it. And also, I'm going to use this opportunity to just talk about the factory segment. I hope you'll indulge me the bears the bears offense is like super legit.

Rob Kelly:

It's so legit. And it's like, I can't believe we knew. We kind of knew they were though, when they almost put up 30 Young the boys because no one puts up we talked about we talked about no one puts up 30 points,

Dave Clarke:

no one and that defense looked a little bit susceptible now, it has just sort of seemed like maybe it wasn't just the Cowboys like dynamic offense. Absolutely shredding the bears defense, we definitely have some polls, especially since we've made some big trades, but fucking hell congested fuels play says

Rob Kelly:

watch his stock has gone from like, I don't know, if you were to go one to 10. It was like a three. Now it's eight, eight or nine?

Dave Clarke:

I would I would say right now. Yeah, I agree. Thank you for saying that. It makes me feel like I've had a couple of weeks in a row with the losses of stung. But it's like, okay, they sting. But like, I liked the direction we're going. So it's okay.

Rob Kelly:

I feel like you should so did he, I don't know if he was in a big house as I listen, I want fields in a position to win these games. This

Dave Clarke:

is what I've been saying. That's perfect is what I've been saying for weeks, dude, but we need to lose,

Rob Kelly:

but we need to lose. You know what I mean? Like he's like, I'm okay with losing as long as fields looks.

Dave Clarke:

Because because we have our own draft pick, I understand why you say Right. And I do get that and I do want you know, I would love to see that draft pick us on a guy to build a defense around like a guy that like what you know, you guys get in Fitzpatrick like that sort of that sort of a pick where you can just sort of say like, we like we're gonna build an offense around the identity of a player that comes out in the first six picks of the NFL draft, which I love, but I still hate watching the team lose, if that makes sense. So I think on that note, I guess let's talk about the actual power ranking. So for better for worse, all jokes aside, the dolphins want another game. I think too. It does look like essentially Yeah, a lot of dudes could make those plays with those weapons, but he's the one doing it. So you can't really take that from him and he does The dolphins do look better when two is their QB so on the pendulum let me ask you on the pendulum swinging between two or being possibly a guy that could get this done for this organization maybe not this year but at some point and him definitely not being the guy considering some of his play over the over last season. Where are you with him?

Rob Kelly:

So um uh, what have you done for Formula guy and this year man to his stat stack up with the best of them? You can't you can't deny what this dude is doing like I know he has Hill and water I gotta admit but for you have those two speedy wide receivers so you have to be accurate with with these passes because that's that's what makes his offense so electric. And how do you do that you get one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the NFL and I feel like that's what two was kind of solidifying himself as right I mean, what is he's like 72% completion percentage, right? Yeah. So he he's putting up stats man that that are legit. With number one quarterback like top 10 quarterback stats this year. No doubt about it. Yeah,

Dave Clarke:

yeah, no, I mean, I agree completely. I feel like the I feel like their defense still needs a lot of work. I know they brought in Chubb, the he's like a linebacker right like an outside linebacker. He didn't really look like he was going to come in and make an instant impact. Like say, Ro Quan Smith did for the Ravens like row Quan Smith walked into the fucking ravens linebacker core and just absolutely started footing making plays, which is what

Rob Kelly:

he was doing in Chicago, like Kyle, it seemed like he was a raven the whole time didn't I mean, it's similar. It's

Dave Clarke:

a you know, it's like if you're a guy of an organization like that, like the bears the ravens, like these sort of sort of defensive franchises, I feel like he was drafted with a certain profile in mind. And it's like, you can probably make a one to one switch to Baltimore from Chicago better than you can eat. Like I understand. It's like, we're not in the Ray Lewis Brian Urlacher era anymore, but like this is still like what these franchises identities is and should be. So you go get a real Quan Smith in Chicago, he should be able to go play and I you know, Pittsburgh, he should be able to go playing in Baltimore, he should be able to go play in these places. New England, he should be able to play in these places that like have sort of a defensive pedigree didn't really notice that with Chubb as much, but maybe the bears offense, like we talked about is just sort of legit. And like, what it wasn't really down to the offense defense, but where do you stand on their team overall? Yeah, I

Rob Kelly:

just I want to I want to compare him to kinda like we did last week with the, the teams that were left off, and I just wanted to see a little of fortnight is around here. So they are that,

Dave Clarke:

but like, I thought that's because that to me, I thought I think they have a similar profile.

Rob Kelly:

They do. Yes, they do. But I just I want to so do you think so is the dolphin. Right? So that leaves suspect defender 100% right about that. They've given up 30 More than 30 points multiple times this year. Yeah. Give up more than 30 points for the Lions. Yeah, more.

Dave Clarke:

I think that I really I mean, I'm obviously biased, but I think the bears would have done that to a lot of teams last weekend, but I think that they still obviously have some holes that were exploited

Rob Kelly:

yet. No, your your offense is legit, then. Yeah, no, it's great. We can talk about that in a minute. But bangles dolphins is dolphins right? Yeah, it's Titans dolphins after that, that shell out on Monday. Still still love them, right?

Dave Clarke:

Yeah, yeah, it's definitely still the dolphins. It's it's weird, because I feel like like, I feel like the fucking Bengals like, dog walks a team too. And it's still like, I just there's so Trick or treat. It's like hard to trust them. Because it's like, what are they going to look like next week? Right? Yeah. So the dolphins are like, becoming really trustworthy, I think is sort of where we're getting to at this conversation. Like two of them is like starting to make me like trust him a little bit more like, the coaching staff is making me trust a little bit more. Like, there's teams on this on this list that I'm not I wouldn't trust as much as the dolphins but I understand why they're ahead in the Power Rankings, if that makes sense. There's also this sort of ingrained thing of like, thinking the dolphins suck because I wasn't alive in 1972. Like, it's like, they've just always fucking sucks. So it's this thing of like, Jay Fiedler and like, Yeah, huge as the years and it's like, and then watch his watching the Patriots just like use it as a practice squad game. Like for like, for 15 years in living in Massachusetts. And it's just like, you know, it's it's hard to believe that that that franchise has been turned around because like, as far as cultural identity goes like that was you're starting from scratch,

Rob Kelly:

bro. I gotta say What a move to bring in Jeff Wilson. I have to say that that's going to be one of the more underrated deadline moves. Yeah. To bring in to do this familiar with that zone run right? It's just it's it's you're talking a lot you're talking

Dave Clarke:

a lot about that that sort of zone run. Working across the NFL. We were talking about that in the discord it's and this thing of like the 40 Niners do it the dolphins do it speedy, speedy dump and run guys. Like kind of sort of littering your offense. And that being you like you don't even really need like stud blockers and those systems right like you just have guys that know the scheme get to where they need to get to and just like make the key blocks because you're trying to read the defense with it and it is all about having I think these fastest fuck like it's like it's crazy I'm fucking pass that dolphins offense is it was like so painful to watch. Like them just like light up my team right moment Moment. Moment of the week though is a

Rob Kelly:

McDaniel talent fields to stop it. That was great because I was I've you know exactly what that sounded like I feel like I've had that happen in my life sounds like Stop it. You Hey, stop it.

Dave Clarke:

I also I like the fact that and just touches. Just one more last time. I'm so sorry. I'm just excited about it. You know, I enjoyed listening to the commentary TV like and, you know, sneakily, they have the most salary cap going into the offseason of any team has like been saying that. And they were like and they probably have a pretty high draft pick. They have like their second and third Rounders like they you know, they moved on the Baltimore second rounder but it seemed like they went got Claypool so let him learn the offense and we'll see but it was it's fields to me you know it there's gonna be a theme across this this podcast is there is every week when we get to the Vikings and the 40 Niners and the Seahawks probably like you know these teams where it's like I mean, I'm you guys are good. You're legitimately good, but unless you have that dude at at QB one. You're not winning shit. Like, I mean, I don't even think Matt Stafford is that. What do you heard of that field?

Rob Kelly:

Shields is that dude,

Dave Clarke:

I think he like he just seems like the kind of guy that might actually listen. And because like there's just and I'm not saying he is or he isn't. But I'd rather the ambiguous question. Leaning Yes, than the definitive knows that we have these other teams. Do you know what I mean?

Rob Kelly:

It like let's let's put it this way. So the Jets right now, who are our next team? Is it if they had picked Justin fields, instead of Zach Wilson, they would be the funnest and maybe one of the top five teams in the NFL. Totally. And I don't think there's any doubt about that today, bro. They their defense is legit sauce Gardner is legit funded. Can I just say that? Those pass interference? I got I gotta say it man 100% That was fucking passenger fares. There's no doubt about that. So great play, I get why they didn't call it if you're a Bills fan, you definitely have the right to drop the ball.

Dave Clarke:

Can we talk for a second about an answer for you. It's like I make I've tried to make it a rule of thumb on football shows to like to not talk about the officials not talking referee because like it is subjective as fuck, obviously, they're like across any sport you can think of your bias is obviously going to inform what you think of a call, right? But there are some cut and dry situations that you just you have to get right. And for me, the past interference thing. It becomes nuanced, because they don't explain the rule correctly. Then it becomes up for debate and it becomes this. This back and forth like oh, yeah, no, they're just hand fighting. Oh, well, what are you he's holding them past the five yards or, you know, it becomes this argument because they intentionally don't really tell us what it's supposed to be to let their referees off the hook a little bit more, and give them a little bit more control over the game because the only way he's seen in the NBA the only way that a an organization can control the game because there's so many different factors with players and who's had a good game and who is in game plans. The only way they can affect it is via the referees and I'm not saying there's some sort of grand conspiracy in the NFL. But if this rule was aligned a little bit better, we could maybe we could maybe just make these calls like you know there'd be a little bit more accountability because like what happened to the you got to turn around for example, just poor amplia what happened to the you got to turn around and play the ball or his passenger fares automatically that was a thing now it isn't when did that happen?

Rob Kelly:

I feel like it's that it should be it's still totally because

Dave Clarke:

it's like it's not it hasn't been like taken out of the rulebook it's still like in the like on paper should be the call but it is

Rob Kelly:

I guess that like you're reacting to the dude so like you're not playing you're not trying to interfere you're putting your hands up to play the ball because yeah, like bro, if you're not turning and making a play on the ball, you're literally doing your only thing you could do is interfere with the past you know what I mean? That's that are but yeah, I completely I think it's just a rule that that

Dave Clarke:

that has made the NFL look freakin stupid in recent memory. Was it a playoff game or like a game a game to get a team into the playoffs where it was like, I think the Bengals were involved, where it was like the worst pass interference call right at the end of the season.

Rob Kelly:

It was it was the it was the NFC Championship game. It was this big of a game. It was the saints in the Rams. That's right. That's right. That's right. That's right, literally,

Dave Clarke:

I'll come back to me now and it just wasn't called right. So I think to I think to see simplified as a rule here would be my suggestion and I want them to look at my cancel kickers and punters completely suggestion first. But after that, look at this too like to simplify it. If you touch the other guy, before he begins to try to catch the ball, it's past interference. That simple and and when I say begins to try to catch the ball, I think it's, there's a, there's a moment, right? There's always there's a moment where he's like, Okay, I'm running, I'm running, I see it, I see it. And then that third phase of like, I'm going to catch it, his hands come up above his waist, you couldn't, you know, deal with the nuances of that. If you touch him before that. It's fucking pass interference. That's it, right? No more hand fighting. Like, I don't give a shit. I understand that. The quarterback position is probably the most difficult position to play in the NFL. And you're not, you're not helping.

Rob Kelly:

That's why there's not one white quarter quarterback in the world,

Dave Clarke:

but 100 Random Let's keep it that way. I want to keep it a skill position. This is the thing and that it also goes along with it the way the NFL sort of calls its rules these days they're trying to make it more them trying to make more fun that's gonna result in more catches and it's gonna make the referees jobs easier and also the booth or New York or whatever needs to just be right away just like I need to be like if customer experience and then I was like okay, I'm sorry, we didn't throw the flag but like it is so I

Rob Kelly:

think it should be 15 yards not to like sit here and do like we need to break

Dave Clarke:

out of the ball thing is no no no it isn't. This is a good chat because the spot of the ball thing can change a game yeah, it's gonna change change the bears dolphins game it very clearly changed I mean, to a lesser extent just because of where they were definitely changed the bills Jets game it's I think you're right I think 15 yard 15 years because what college does bro Yeah, what's the opposing argument to that is well then they're always going to pass interfere with them. If it's a potential to get to catch the ball, and it's more more than 15 yards,

Rob Kelly:

do you know defensive backs do you know quarterbacks do that

Dave Clarke:

cool they're not gonna you know like and you can call that on a fucking case by case basis to like you can you can, you can have that. If that very obviously is the thing like if a guy's just like, clearly makes that calculation and just wraps a dude up. You call that unsportsmanlike conduct. Yeah, and you give him 15 or 15 from from the fucking game.

Rob Kelly:

I felt spot I was a student. I always thought that's

Dave Clarke:

silly. It's silly.

Rob Kelly:

It's absolutely silly. Actually much can I bring up one other gripe too? Please. Holding bro why the fuck is holding 10 Goddamn yards. I think that's the stupidest fucking thing ever. Because it happens on every play. Listen, it's such a suppression of the call in telling you right now

Dave Clarke:

I've been saying this I've been saying exactly why the fuck isn't holding five get that dude forget that. I've been saying the same said the same thing I've been I've been I've been saying this since I was fucking drive I'm telling you right now. I'm telling you right now drive do away with it as a penalty do away with his penalty no more votes. Well I don't give a shade holding I don't give a shit. You know what here's the thing. Offensive Linemen at a disadvantage they are at a disadvantage already. They have the harder job they have to stay inside your fucking whatever to I don't give a fuck anymore. If you want to sack the quarterback, it's going to be difficult. It's going to be difficult and maybe they'll hold you or whatever the fuck but I don't care fucking do away with it. Just do away with it. You if you want to sack the quarterback, you got to steamroll that guy in front of you. You got to fuck him up and you got to get to the quarterback and he tries to hold you but he can't. How many times you've seen that those sacks happen all the time where they're getting held. But the dude's just such a monster he's getting to the he's getting to the QB that's what's happening. There's nothing you can do about you can hold him you can pull his jersey he's getting there. That's the kind of sec I like anyway, what can hold him if you don't give a shit holding for everybody. Everyone in the bar gets a whole I agree. I agree wholeheartedly.

Rob Kelly:

It just changes games. There's too many fighting games. It just broke the better especially when that especially with the Cowboys especially with the Cowboys in my life. There have been so many games where the outcome the momentum of the game like you feel it bro because you get like a huge run football. Well let's go where where he a whole low? Yeah, I'll fucking flows. Oh, Adams on the cowboy. You know what? Another one that needs to go. Block in the back. Get that out of here. Everyone was in the back. Isn't that safe? Dad's safety issues? Yeah, like they give a fuck.

Dave Clarke:

And then like I mean to do to take your fucking telling me bro. How many kick return and punt return touchdowns Have you seen since Devin Hester made it a cheat code. And they had to change all the rules. Yeah, and they were like, Oh, we're kicking off like from a different place now and like it's just all fucking touchbacks and it's like, cool. Like, nobody's returning kicks anymore. I'm at the point where kick returns where I'm like, I feel like the numbers are probably you're more likely to fumble and score a touchdown. Like don't ever return it just fair. Catch it every single time or let it bounce.

Rob Kelly:

Okay, so if we're if we're just going off on a tangent, I'm gonna give one more. Why the fuck did they change over time. So both teams get the ball shortened by five minutes. Can anyone fucking explain that to them understand, can anyone explain to me they're like, we're gonna give both teams a ball. But we need to shorten it. If they don't score they tie. They just never so why the fuck you do net?

Dave Clarke:

Here's why the fuck did you I got an idea for this too. I got an idea for OTL so I think you get 50 more minutes, right? But you can't kick field goals anymore. That should be the only touchdowns I fuck. And it's not it's not sudden debt. It's not something that it's just 15 more minutes and whoever's up at the at the end. And then if and guess what? If you're still tired, you play 15 more minutes and nobody can kick cubicles and then it's everyone's still tight. You put sorry, you know someone's gonna score. So like let's look and see like two point conversions. No, just touchdown, six six pointers, six pointers. That's it, you

Rob Kelly:

got it, you got to do the extra play. Alright, fuck it. Yeah,

Dave Clarke:

two point conversions, then two. That's cool, because then everyone has to go for two. It's like a fifth overtime. Which leads me to my larger point. Make that always the rule. No more vehicles, no more punts.

Rob Kelly:

That's your initial race to the

Dave Clarke:

acre mount of the great guys four downs. It's going to make it a higher scoring event. If you do that you're going to score more if you do that, right. It's it like think about it 21 seven is

Rob Kelly:

three to one but kickers do add excitement it does in these

Dave Clarke:

athletic man on the team should not be able to decide the game the dude who has the least amount on the day should not be able to decide the game the guy would think

Rob Kelly:

think about think about the big the big moments those big cake

Dave Clarke:

but the big moments we didn't get think about the big moments we didn't get because kicks happened that are way fucking

Rob Kelly:

missing it is still a big moment Right?

Dave Clarke:

I understand but like if I right if you take if you take kicks away How many

Rob Kelly:

did you see I've said this from day one. This is double dork PTSD. From From that moment we you had a theory No, don't. Don't Don't pre pre Double Dog. You had a theory. And then after the Double Dog you're like, oh, no,

Dave Clarke:

don't make like definite improvement. That would happen in the NFL. If they did my route. Think about the catches you haven't seen because they chose to punt or kick. Think about those catches that you haven't seen it. They're gone. They're lost in the ether because they had to punter kick anyway, we got a frog in New York said

Rob Kelly:

yeah, we're sorry. We can rewrite the game of football on this podcast.

Unknown:

We can

Rob Kelly:

listen make a better game. We can make a better game,

Dave Clarke:

man. There's just some rules in there. Okay. Number nine. New York Jets with a big over the over the offset Buffalo Bill.

Rob Kelly:

We're on number nine. Jesus Christ.

Dave Clarke:

Yeah, we got to pick up the pace here. We got to pick up the face here. Okay. Cuckoo cuckoo. How about them jets Bob?

Rob Kelly:

me bro. Going into this week. The Jets were the first team I've ever seen four to one odds. And they were six and two. Like no. Or is that what they were 16 to no one expected and if I can win this game, I didn't expect them to win this fucking game. Did you think Zach Wilson was going to be able to drop beat Josh Allen he right

Dave Clarke:

off the bat though right off the bat Can I just like posit something to you and you can either agree or talk me out of it but like I don't know if they won this game. I think the bills lost this game. I know it's a little bit of a cliche but like they didn't look like themselves. You know I just think if a real Buffalo Bills performance gets turned in and not whatever the fuck that was then the Jets don't win the game. Yeah, what was up Josh Outubro he looked weird and he even said it afterwards. He was like I had a terrible game and like sometimes you just have a bad game. And I think I don't know if I'm reading any more into it than that

Rob Kelly:

was there was it like we sat with a quicksand you think it was that first that first pick was inexcusable?

Dave Clarke:

Yeah, I think I just think he was like a step behind he just looked like a little bit of a step behind he wasn't quite 100% like he wasn't anticipating things properly wasn't clearly wasn't reading defenses properly. He was holding the ball for too long at times you know without making a move or doing something like he normally does like just just making something out of nothing and making a play happen like he he wasn't seen open guys which is super weird for him for like any of the top five in the in the NFL cubies to have that damning shot of like Chris Collins where there's like let's see from behind the QB here and it's just like there's like three dudes on slant routes just wide open and Josh Allen's like looking over to the corner guys like covered by three dudes you're like it's like the Madden view and you're like Dude, what are you doing this throat the throat to the open guy? And I feel like it was yeah, I just my overall point I guess is it was it was more the bills sucking them than the jets being good not to take anything away from the Jets because I do think that they look like a good football team and I really do like their defense like you said and maybe it's them that threw off Josh Allen and maybe it's them that were thrown a lot of looks at him and and the bill and generally making them look weird or I mean, talk me into this big flawed Bill's team. Like maybe they're maybe they're just like that big slot team that just doesn't ever really get it together. Either way.

Rob Kelly:

I don't know if you remember when we first got together the bills, it was like the start of the bills. Uprising rising from like, average mediocre. They beat or they beat the Viking on like, and I remember it. Yeah, I never believed in them at the beginning. And I just feel like that bill's team that I've always been like, listen,

Dave Clarke:

just bullshit things happen. happens to them a lot. Like no WAPA like it just a creeps back every once in a while you remember that? Jags game when I shot when they were like nine to six? There's a flaw in the DNA or something. Yeah, they're just fucking weird man. Like, like if I said to you, like if I had a time machine in me when five years in the future and in five years. The current both the bills and the Dolphins are similarly constituted, with their big players remaining the same. And their coaching staffs remaining the same but the dolphins are clearly a better team. Would that be the craziest thing you've ever heard at this point?

Rob Kelly:

I'll even add in one more. And the Jets the team that we're talking about number nine, I think the Jets if you were to add up everyone's team because of the defense if they can keep that together, bro defense has a word and it defense sticks around for a long time. You know what I mean? It when when you can build a core of a defense. It's

Dave Clarke:

more about it's more of personality, chopping, chopping and changing personnel. around a core group of guys in our defensive locker room around mindset like culture as opposed to an offense where you're like, No, you gotta go get yourself some studs that like clearly make some shit happen.

Rob Kelly:

If it's not Zach Wilson of the jet Oh, Jesus Christ is just a man. If the jets can get a quarterback that if you were to grade a five to seven, right now I said Jack wasn't like a three to four. If they were to get like a five to seven guy. I feel like this team is legitimate if you were to give me five years into the future of any of these teams, chatter a tough argument not to make I got there sauce, Gartner quizzes in a generation on your mic or when they hear you? I'm sorry, your sauce gardener is a generational quarterback Brett generates

Dave Clarke:

he really is unbelievable. He's really so fucking good. And I think those guys, but the thing is, is like you said, and we've talked about this on this exact show before it's like the You Can Build A defense with with second round and onward draft picks. And you can build a defense with like smart free agency signings into coaching. You can't go find that quarterback that you're talking about, like, where's that guy? Everybody wants that guy. Everybody wants that, dude. So there's, there's just not that many of them. You know, and there's a lot of dudes that come out of college to pick up so many so many. And there's a lot of dudes that come out of college that look like they could be you know, like, I remember I could quote you some very serious Brady Quinn conversations that I heard in my lifetime. You know, there's guys that look like all Americans in college that come out and they do fuck all. So you're you have to punt a whole year and high draft pick to go find a guy like that. Or the alternative is you, I guess, become a team where you win almost. You win really close without it. And then the guy the quarterback becomes a free agent and goes like I could go there and win. Like there's a team for me to plug and play which is sort of the Tom Brady era, the new Tom Brady era move, but I don't know like there's nothing is there a ton of movement of cubies in the NFL real good works. That works. So I mean, like I said, going to Tampa work. That's the only one though there's really one of the only ones I can think of like, like spectacular failure in Denver is horrible failure. But because Peyton going to go into Denver in the Denver area, Farmington Minnesota was going to work for like a second word for

Rob Kelly:

them. Brett five showed back up and you know,

Dave Clarke:

I'm a fired in there and it's like to six people

Rob Kelly:

across across my body. The other side of the fields in the NFC Championship.

Dave Clarke:

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I guess your fucking thieving bastards bred far.

Rob Kelly:

No, I mean, I just I, I can't think of one. So it's just they got to figure out how to draft the quarterback because the last three Zach Wilson depicted the third pick. Sam Daros. They picked the third pick Geno Smith they picked in the first round but but but but and then Mark Mark Sanchez is the one before that. But that one for which that's that's for quarterbacks in a row that they picked it in the first round. And just besides Geno Smith, which is just fucking crazy.

Dave Clarke:

It's a great segue because I guess the the sort of the finale and that is I still don't really believe in the Jets. They're one of the teams on this list that doesn't have a guy QB one that can win the championship. So They were starting to get into that era, the season where they become irrelevant. It's a nice little upstart story, but they're not winning shoe with Zach Wilson. So that brings me to the fucking Seahawks and Geno Smith. Who Yeah, I mean, they're still good. They're still good. He's still playing really well. It's not gonna last, it's not gonna let us I don't know, man,

Rob Kelly:

I think like,

Dave Clarke:

he does have great receivers, and he does have a good coach. And it is sort of revealing that that that's a system where like a guy can come in and be really highly competent, and almost above average in that system, if they need to take a step back. Yeah, he needs

Rob Kelly:

to take a step back and let his fucking star receivers do this and let Ken Walker do his thing. And this, this defense came out of fucking nowhere. You know, it's

Dave Clarke:

all good differences this

Rob Kelly:

year. It's crazy. It is. Yeah, for sure. But it looks like a Seahawks team of old is what it looks like man. A bunch of no names that Carol just drafted and revamped his entire defense. You know, we talked for the LLB bro. He just revamped it in two drafts. Yeah, and he did it one this time. We talk

Dave Clarke:

a lot of shit about shitty coaches in this league. And we talking about the league as a whole of like, there's like no good head coaches. And we do when we do the shortlist. And we always say like belcheck Tomlin we're because good coach, man, and he's a good he's a good designer of a football team. And finding the pieces that that fit into that, like he's better at that than Bill Belichick is he's probably not better at all the other stuff you know, like running it when you have lunch, which all sorts of damages legacy

Rob Kelly:

I think it's better to hang out with so probably better yeah, I

Dave Clarke:

would assume it's funner at parties, but that damages legacy so much that one play that people do sort of forget that he like built that team in the first place and there were a lot of fun and there was just a lot of really big athletic starts on that team just fucking making place and it was they were fun to watch that.

Rob Kelly:

What do you think was audible? No, I don't I think that'd be proud. Knowing everything. I don't know knowing I've never you know, but like in the huddle, like in the huddle, but like sort of the wide and they just covered I

Dave Clarke:

wouldn't couldn't you just look at the footage.

Rob Kelly:

Yeah, that's true. You'd see it Yeah,

Dave Clarke:

I'm audible I would come maybe in the huddle maybe says in the huddle like

Rob Kelly:

this is what we're just seems to era it seems a very Russell Wilson thing do nowadays

Dave Clarke:

but you're not actually I believe it I am back I believe it.

Rob Kelly:

So I just want to compare so if you were to ask, Which quarterback got traded for what was it, two first round picks. This year, one quarterback quarterback a 75% completion rate 113.2 quarterback rate of nine touchdowns and two interceptions Geno

Dave Clarke:

Smith and one's Russell Wilson

Rob Kelly:

Russell Wilson 59.4 82.84 touchdowns three picks.

Dave Clarke:

Wow. That's right and that's terrible. That's really terrible. Any any stock on social media is really really is just a fucking geek. So he's goofy behavior on the internet dangerous? Yeah, I just I don't get it. He might have a body buried somewhere. He's got a real personality issue online. He's like somebody just got to the internet. That's like that's what he reminds me. It's like someone who just learned about the internet yesterday is like Wait so everyone can see this. Amazing what a fun little tool. I can talk to my granddaughter and both from both. Okay, so moving on, because it's gonna start speeding this up ravens looks like the Ravens. Again, I still think they got a little rickety in the fourth quarter defensively, but Lamar Lamar might be making an MVP case this year. And I think on his performances alone, and if you take away sort of the let downs that his defenses made, or some of the mistakes that have happened across the coaching, like we've talked about, even though we both like Harbaugh a lot, as a coach Lamar himself in a vacuum, I think has been fucking unbelievable. He's been absolutely electric, he can definitely throw the ball. And I'm sorry if that doesn't fit the narrative that like people want but like he had his wide receiver one and his tight end hurt going into this game last night. And he never looked like he was gonna underperform in my opinion. So I think for me, I'm at the point where I'm calling the Ravens my like, sleeper hit of the summer, I think. I think Lamar Jackson makes like a legitimate playoff run this year that that sort of defies the narrative that's been built around him. And I think I think it's safe to make that call. Now. They're number seven on the Power Rankings. But I think that they, their actual talent and the level they can get to most importantly, sort of is sort of belied by their rankings because of some of the stupid mistakes they've made. I think they have a better chance of being a top four power rankings team than five or six do so if that if that makes any sense. Like it's because it's I think their ceiling is a little higher.

Rob Kelly:

Yeah, at their best. Yeah, that's what I'm we're probably better than than five or six. I

Dave Clarke:

As five is the Vikings spoiler alert, five is the Vikings and six is the six is the Niners. Yep. And I think we know what those teams are. And I think if you look at so to read it off, we'll be done. So what I've revealed so far five Vikings, 649 year seven ravens, eight Seahawks, nine jets, 10, dolphins, all of those teams on picking the ravens to have the highest probability of success in the playoffs. It to me none of the other teams I just mentioned are legitimate playoff contenders to do anything really significant. Like go to a championship game, nevermind, go to a championship game and win it. I can see the Ravens doing that there's pedigree for championship experience in the coaching. Everyone seems to be reading off the same hymn sheet. That coach loves his fucking quarterback loves his quarterback. Quarterback loves him. Yeah, and he pretty he loves him like Coach Taylor, like Friday Night Lights like that. That yeah, he's at my house for dinner like four nights a week and I love him with all my heart and we're gonna go win a fucking championship. There's some some southern Cracklin there for me when you watch Baltimore, what do you think it's

Rob Kelly:

it's it's sometimes it's to a fault because he trusts him to fucking mush. He's like, hey, Laurie, you want to go? Where to go for it?

Dave Clarke:

I love that about them.

Rob Kelly:

Yeah, it's it's awesome. Wasn't I think the moment when my watches that builder Harbaugh saw him was I saw him play like four downs. It was like, yeah, no, we're gonna he was like,

Dave Clarke:

we're gonna get to teach them how to throw. The other shit he can do.

Rob Kelly:

Yeah, I mean, listen. I will I just turned Isaiah likely into a star tied into it. Like, to me, I think this has been a theme that we've had almost every single show that we've had so far. Is that Walmart is legit man and and I called him out as a I think if you're saying that

Dave Clarke:

he is. If you're saying that he isn't at this point, you're like officially Solimar hater. And you're just gonna be like that. Yeah, I think that's just the way it is.

Rob Kelly:

Because it was a he does it with his legs. He does it with his arm. And when it comes down to it, yeah, his coach puts him and he puts himself into positions to lose the game at the end because they're just trying to win. But like I trust the Ravens. And Lamar week in and week out with my own money more than I do most teams in the NFL. So that I think I think that goes a long way for saying how they're, you know what I mean? It if I trust my own harder money. I trust you knows it

Dave Clarke:

teams I trust same. Yeah. And I'll also make this point, you know, I'm always fucking on you about the strength to schedule factoring into these power rankings. And quite frankly, if you look at who the Ravens have played, compared to I'll do I'll just do it right now. The third of eagles are obviously still in number one again, spoiler alert, but if we compare their strength to schedule I think it will reveal quite a lot so let's just do that real quick. Because the Ravens have beaten the Jets who are on this power rankings, right they beat them 2049 They lost to the dolphins but the dolphins are also on this power rankings. So that's a top 10 team but they look crazy game two and it was a crazy game and you know 4230 is a shootout they could have won had they like not belong the fucking fourth quarter whatever they beat the patriots who I would say are probably there there abouts. You know I don't think the Patriots for yeah there you go. I mean, they're probably not below tough to beat every week so yeah, of course like no that's that's still steaming when they lost the bills who are on this powering he's obviously in a fucking wagon. We've talked about them already. So no shame in that beat the Bengals who are probably our number 11 right now as we've discussed that gets the top 10 Power Rankings but they probably lost the number 11 team. I'm sorry, they beat they beat the beat the Bengals. So they probably beat the number 11 team they lost the giants who have been there there abouts on this power rankings. But obviously, you know, they've they've struggled a little bit in recent recent years, but it probably 12 Right?

Rob Kelly:

at them, right? They actually might be 11

Dave Clarke:

but they aren't they beat the browns, who probably are nowhere near this top 15. But that's the first thing we've come to they're not a top 15 team as we've discussed it. A little frisky though. Yeah, they can be frisky to beat the Bucs who I would still definitely consider a top 15 Team maybe 13 I'd say they're probably 13 If we're talking about Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, and they just beat the saints who are probably one of the worst teams in the NFL, but you know, you play who's in front of you. That's two teams.

Rob Kelly:

The same word number 10. Week one,

Dave Clarke:

I mean, right? I mean, they're definitely not they're awful, but they're six and three. Right? And they lost it. They lost it three good teams, and they those six wins. They've beaten six relatively good teams with a couple of maybe exceptions, right? That strict schedule tells me they're fucking legit. Now you take the Philadelphia Eagles right? And the

Rob Kelly:

cut this part out and whatever.

Dave Clarke:

You take the take the Philadelphia Eagles and their strength is scheduled to beat the lions. Everybody beats the lions. They beat the Vikings Which I guess is impressive, but we all know they're fucking phonies, with the commander's who everybody beats to beat the Jaguars who everybody beats. And I also can I also just point out, they barely beat the lions. They barely beat the lions. They beat the Jags by eight points, which, you know, could could be better for the number one team in the NFL. They barely beat the cardinals who everybody beats. They beat the Cowboys. That's that's a respectable win. That's fair. They beat the Steelers who everybody beats this year, they beat the Texans who everybody beats this year. So like just on strength, the schedule, the sevens team on the Power Rankings has had a much harder fucking road of it than the one team. That's just true. So I'm not saying that to take anything away from the Eagles. I'm gonna do that later. I'm saying give the Ravens a little bit more credit.

Rob Kelly:

Or I play devil's advocate for this year, though. Listen, I don't think it matters how you play this year, bro. This this year specifically, I've never seen more teams that are fucking one in seven. Competing with a team that's like six and two. This year is fucking wild. Sure, but I feel like everyone counts. But at the same time, that was a very good point.

Dave Clarke:

I mean, I'm just saying you know, I just as far as like just heat heat fucking heat makes swords. You know, it's it's you got to you got to be sharpened by the by these very good teams that you're playing. And I think that that's happening to the Ravens a little bit more than it's happening in the Eagles and the second half of an NFL season. It's a little bit more about grit than it is about skill.

Rob Kelly:

I think the row Colin Smith move was so big man because he's a seasoned stud. Listen, you bring him in. And it makes Justin Houston who is maybe the most underrated linebacker ever. Like he's top five and sacks all time makes him fucking unstoppable. Right that Sunday, bro he was on believable right because they could contend with Houston and fucka ro Quan Smith. Yeah, it very difficult to do that. So the Ravens meant they're legit. That's why they're back on those rankings. You know, I just I still question Harbaugh. I know, he loves Omar. And I know he puts his faith in that I get as a

Dave Clarke:

good coach. So Bob, I mean, he's

Rob Kelly:

is he was sure. Okay. He's what do you see one? What is the one that's like I always go back with like, what? What is he actually done? Yes, he he's been very consistent. Oh, he did win that. So if you want to find out that he was

Dave Clarke:

I mean, look, there they look. He played a guy who looks very similar to him. So

Rob Kelly:

lights, the lights, the lights went out. The lights went out Saturday.

Dave Clarke:

I honestly I sometimes have I sometimes do remember the fight the 1400 is one of those horrible strangely, but because I really I think I really expected them to that year. All right, moving on to the San Francisco 40 Niners

Rob Kelly:

the Ravens did with the Super Bowl. So

Dave Clarke:

yeah. I mean, we already said that on the show. He's probably deserved to do this give a

Rob Kelly:

fuck that to. No, it was just one Yeah. With the

Dave Clarke:

Flacco here it's just the fact of the year he might have to this year those but I'm saying it's been my whole point. All right, so moving on the 40 Niners we're gonna do two minutes on them because quite frankly, the needle hasn't moved on them. They still are who they are. Their defense is pretty solid. Jimmy G can make great underneath passes. And if he tries to throw the deep ball, which he does all the time, which I don't get it always goes fucking haywire. They were able to beat their toughest divisional matchup in the chart in the Rams in the firt the first time they met and they look like they executed a really good game plan. And now I think losing to the Rams in the way that they did. That's that's more damning, because I don't think the rams are very good. So regular garbage. So to lose to them as I noticed the divisional game and sort of it's, you know, you're gonna beat each other up a little bit. But that made me kind of take pause on the 40 Niners and Jimmy G especially them losing the fact that they lost. What do you think? I guess the question I'll ask you is, do you see upward mobility coming for the four years in the Power Rankings? Do you see them hitting 5432 Or one? Or do you see them sliding more in the 789 10 direction?

Rob Kelly:

I think they're right where they're supposed to be. I don't think they're going anywhere. To be honest. I think you're gonna stay right in that middle Pac Man. This team is what you said. You don't exactly what you said. The way I can see them. Taking a step up is if Christian McCaffrey gets 25 to 30 touches he doesn't get sad for

Dave Clarke:

them but it's the injury thing that right there. I

Rob Kelly:

completely agree. But if he's healthy and he's getting it it's possible he could have 200 All Purpose yards every game the rest of the season, actually, because with Jimmy G bro, he's the perfect fucking running back for Jimmy J.

Dave Clarke:

He dropped out asking you a game. That's why you're asking Christian McCaffrey. But yeah, I mean, I think I would hope they don't have the hubris to not do This but the way that Patrick mahomes and Tyreke Hill, I know that Tyreke Hill being wide receiver and Krishna haffi being running back isn't really running back though. Like he's just an offensive player to me like that's how you got to use them. And I think how Pat mahomes and Tyreke Hill used to hook up is the model that you should be basing your entire Christian McCaffrey, Jimmy G hook up, I know he's not Pat mahomes But he can make those jump off passes, he can make those underneath throws and if they if they started to make that happen, and let Christian McCaffrey run downhill and you kind of have to take your balls in your hands a little bit and just hope he doesn't get hurt.

Rob Kelly:

Well, we haven't even seen debo McCaffrey house City Gallery do

Dave Clarke:

that. So I mean, they they have a they have a lot of weapons. They would like you. I like debo. I like Chris McCaffrey obviously yeah, they have a lot of weapons. Is it literally I fucked this up.

Rob Kelly:

I literally found the two weapons that are perfect for Jimmy G because you Jimmy G doesn't need to throw it more than 15 yards to the rest of the season. You know, it should just be slant. It should just shouldn't

Dave Clarke:

more than 15 yards for the rest of his career. His deep ball is so bad. Anyway. We're not doing a Viking segment because I'm just like,

Rob Kelly:

I want to talk about you don't want to talk about Kirk Cousins pimping out on fucking plane at 230 in the afternoon?

Dave Clarke:

No. Because what we've decided already about the Vikings is that I heard somebody say on a different podcast, they should not be mentioned that he was like, Yeah, I got a buddy in Minnesota is like it's weird. The Vikings right? There weren't all these games, but like, I don't really believe that they're gonna do anything. And the Minnesota Vikings fan was like, Yeah, nobody Minnesota is excited. They all know. They'll know that they're gonna fuckin end up sucking and Kirk Cousins is gonna fail on primetime. Like everybody knows. So since everybody knows, and we've had this conversation every week for the past four weeks, I don't think the Vikings does anymore every time that that end is nigh. And, you know, hit me in the comment section. If you're that mad about it, you're in Minnesota, you're probably mad about everything. So moving on what we're gonna do fun little game that we always do. Because we also have another little surprise to fit in at the end of this show. We have been taken for we haven't taken three, two and one and doing a little segment about that more now. Or we're gonna go for now because the bills have dropped down to four, the Cowboys are now in third. All the way to two and he goes,

Rob Kelly:

make that note. I know, I know, a run a long time. Now with the Cowboys. The Cowboys jumped the bills. Okay. That's pretty notable now.

Dave Clarke:

I mean, okay. some caveats. The Power Rankings are made by a Cowboys fan. The Cowboys did not I try.

Rob Kelly:

I try and take that into a negative effect. Well, the Cowboys, the Cowboys

Dave Clarke:

didn't play and the bills lost the game to the Jets. So the the Cowboys didn't jump the bills, the bills fell behind the Cowboys. So I it's another reason why it since it comes into play. No, no. I mean, I think I think the Cowboys have earned their spot. I think if you make the spot you've earned your spot. I think if there's an argument to be made for you being at that spot, then that's that's all that matters. What I think we're going to see actually happen right now in real time. When we play a little game is 432 in Warren bills, cowboys, chiefs, eagles. Right. What we have there is we got two NFC teams now and we got two AFC teams. At the top. I like it. So I'm going to ask you this question. Bills chiefs, you flip flop, I think your two bills, two chiefs on the last four weeks of us doing this, you pick the bills twice, you picked the Chiefs twice. I've been consistently chiefs, that has not changed just to spoil that part of the segment, because you got to put some respect on Pat mahomes man like Josh Allen has a needs to win something to be in sort of any sort of conversation where there's a debate about the rivalry. That's just, that's just it. So Bill's play the chiefs in the AFC Championship game. Who do you have more faith in this week to go to the Super Bowl?

Rob Kelly:

I think chiefs I think I'm BACK TO THE CHASE because this week I had this thought in my head, bro that if you So you took Pat mahomes Right. And you took his weapon. You took his security blanket. You took his big play guy away from him. And he's still fucking Batman. Yeah, if you take Stefon Diggs away from Josh, our as you still fucking Josh, our No. What do you think? No. Right. I think yeah, I think he has more of

Dave Clarke:

a despot. That's been my whole point about the mahomes Allen and the Chiefs bills, like debate, like I still really

Rob Kelly:

trust him like I used to, it's still like, man

Dave Clarke:

did nothing to see how he got Juju Smith Schuster into that offense by basically being like, You got to play different. And Juju did it and to do it games, we're gonna change it, change it to do something else. I don't like what you're doing. And he's Pat mahomes. So you can do that. And him being able to do that and him being able to kind of reconstruct this offense around himself again, and make it a different identity but still just as effective. They can still drop 21 points on you before you know what happened. I think that's another Your piece to the puzzle that is like why are we talking about Josh Allen in the same way? We're talking about Pat mahomes. Like it's not it? He hasn't earned that. I'm not saying he won't. But I mean, Pat mahomes is still on track to be released all the time. Like, that's where we're going. So why this, but

Rob Kelly:

I know I like waver back and forth on this. I just love having both of those in a big way. He's better He's better at North Korea. over dt was what we do here. mahomes is so underrated with his legs that like because he doesn't use it. He doesn't do it unless he has to because that whole like kneecap dislocation thing, right? But he, Josh Allen is like he he is his running ability. You know what I mean? Without his running ability? I don't think Josh Allen says his arms amazing. But I don't think he'd be able to read off fences and do like it. Do do it. Like my home says right? It mahomes uses legs, his legs as a luxury when he has to. Yeah, and when he does, he's effective with it. So it's just I feel like that's where it kind of tips a favors in my home a little bit. To

Dave Clarke:

me, the reason why Tom Brady became the greatest quarterback of all time, why he won this stuff he wanted for people to say that is because he was the best decision maker I've ever seen. Like he is sometimes he was in situations where there was no good decision, but he would always choose the best bad decision. And sometimes he was in situations where he had to make a series of amazing decisions and he would do it every time. Almost every time. It's tough to bet against them. I see that and Pat mahomes Almost to the same degree almost it hasn't been fully proven yet obviously has been in all the same situations. But it's that plus incredible athleticism and unbelievable ability to throw the ball and weapons fucking everywhere. So yeah, you know, and they both had really good coaches. So I think to me, if we talked about trust if that's the theme of the day like there's nobody I trust to win me a football game more than Pat mahomes right now and and the Kansas City Chiefs in general, because Travis Kelce is also a fucking beast. And a lot of the guys that they have on that team are great. Maybe their defense is a little suspect. Like maybe you can make some yards on the ground on them but like I'm still taking them in an AFC Championship situation right now because of the Pat mahomes Josh Allen debate we just had now to get to the really interesting one. We have an NFC champ so we're sending the Chiefs desireable right now in this scenario now what are they gonna

Rob Kelly:

championship? What a championship weekend this

Dave Clarke:

will be probably the championship week I'm if we said best ever

Rob Kelly:

was if he's the best championship we can ever re rave it feels Callaway I really

Dave Clarke:

do believe in the Ravens but yeah, so say this is the championship weekend as of right now. The Cowboys and eagles I don't even know if it can happen. I haven't looked at like that. You know the seating and like how all that shit works. But what? What does it look like if the Cowboys get first of all get to an NFC Championship Game considering the recent 90 Not even entire

Rob Kelly:

resort it looks like is me with a huge boner.

Dave Clarke:

Horrible sake? No, I mean, listen. They're small, they have to win. They have

Rob Kelly:

to you know, I've never seen an NFC Championship game. Yeah,

Dave Clarke:

I know. I've watched the Cowboys to say haven't made

Rob Kelly:

sense. Walking fair is bad.

Dave Clarke:

But so they have to overcome a lot of a lot of history. And they have to come up against a team that I don't know, probably one of the last that many games at this point at that point, because they don't even really play anybody good. So they are both in the NFC Championship Game who take trying to your bias out of it. Who are you sending this your role seriously, and it's an AFC Championship situation you have the context here. Everyone's healthy. What do you got?

Rob Kelly:

What's scary is it's in Philly, that gotta be in Philly, and a Philly crowd with a championship on the line against what is a different level, but it's still a fucking cowboys. This, this defense with that much on the line. I feel like we'll give hertz trouble. The what really scares me about the ego. So is that run game, bro, because we saw what the bears just did to the Cowboys two weeks ago.

Dave Clarke:

I mean, we do have Samus running yards in the entire NFL,

Rob Kelly:

but it's the same process the same fucking offense. Same thing is Jalen hertz, and just feels the same type of quarterback. They're both, you know, a little shaky with the past sometimes, but when they get outside with their legs, they get into playmaking situations. They're fucking unbelievable. And then you have running backs who are dangerous. So the Eagles a dangerous Pro, especially to this cowboys defense. So, listen, my heart says cowboys. I really see the Cowboys shutting hers down. But if hertz takes that next step into the playoffs, I would be I would have trouble making this call on championship Legion. If Eagles get to the NFC Championship, that means hurts played well in a playoff game. And this offense played well. No playoff game, you know,

Dave Clarke:

that's also true the Cowboys up, I tell you something's true. So who are you sending? So wait,

Rob Kelly:

we can we I'm sending the cabbage. All right,

Dave Clarke:

I'm sending the Eagles and I'll tell you why. It's not a personnel thing or a talent thing. Football player wise, it's not the history of the Cowboys as much as you might think it's that it's a little bit the context and and the idea of them being an NFC NFC Championship game and how much I trust. Ah, like you said, like Jalen hertz is played well to get there. Like that kind of stuffs about 15%. That, and the rest of it. Unfortunately, Bob is Mike McCarthy. It's to me, it's just like, I'm looking at Mike Moore. I'm picturing Mike McCarthy in an NFC Championship game on the sidelines. Just thinking up ways to fuck it up.

Rob Kelly:

Thinking of those. Yeah. And I just like motion. Yeah,

Dave Clarke:

like I can see him making really bad decisions in an NFC Championship game that losing that game, but I can also see him doing it sooner. And you guys don't even get that far.

Rob Kelly:

Does it change your opinion at all? If we add Obj? I don't see him.

Dave Clarke:

His leg is really fucked. I don't know. You guys do need another receiver. But no, it doesn't. Because like I said, it's not a it's not a personnel issue.

Rob Kelly:

It's strictly democratic.

Dave Clarke:

Pretty well. Yeah. I mean, you're all coaching staff pretty much I just don't trust them. If and if trust has been the theme. That's pretty much where I am. So in the Super Bowl. You got the Cowboys, I got the Eagles, but we broke out the chiefs who is winning the Superbowl?

Rob Kelly:

I wish chiefs would be fun as a rule for chiefs fans. Yeah, I'd pick chiefs. I mean.

Dave Clarke:

I wish them sorry.

Rob Kelly:

I do think I was I don't think we've seen this. I don't even think we've seen the best cowboys yet. That's why I'm really high on this team. Because like their offense is just getting going. Pollard is just getting going. Zeke still sucks. But I feel like the Cowboys offense only has up to go. So I feel like they give them a game. But yeah, I'd pick chief. So the only thing that gives me a little bit of solace, and a little more confidence is the Bucs beat the Chiefs rushing for and putting that pressure on mahomes. And that's what the Cowboys can do. That's what they're built to do. AAA is shut down a quarterback literally with four to five guys at most. Yeah, so that's, that's what gives me a little solace and a little confidence about it. But yeah, it'd be.

Dave Clarke:

So you heard it here first, folks. Bobby's high on the Cowboys. I'm just high. And nobody for the ninth week running has any faith in the number one team in the power rankings to win Super Bowls still? Oh, well, you know when it changes, but we play this fun game every week where we try and figure out if we think they're gonna win a buck and ring. And the answer has not been yes from anyone one time. So that won't do it for us because we've actually come up with a little bonus segment at the end of the pairing show. As Bobby and I are both fucking degenerate gamblers. We have come up with a couple of fun little parlays for you guys to put on we fancy ourselves betters and we do Okay, so if you guys want to track or do a very differently, very difficult bet very differently for sure. I don't even really believe in the parlay as a as a method, but it is fun. As always, please gamble, gamble responsibly. If you have any issues with addiction, you are so many No, go to be gambleaware.org. And definitely go to a meeting because we don't want you to spend any money that you don't have. We don't want this to negatively affect your life. But it can be fun if you do it right. So without any further gilding the lily and no more ado, I move on to the David Bobby parlays segment and next week I'll have thought of a better name for you. So Bobby, this is the man who just fucking trial run here. Bobby, why don't you go first? Tell us you had to do two NFL parlays Yeah. All right. So Bobby's got two NFL parlays and I've got one NFL parlay and then one little mystery box one with some other stuff going on around the weekend. So why don't you do yours first Bobby then I'll do one. Then you do one then I'll do my last one and then we'll call it a day.

Rob Kelly:

So So first, before we get into it, I noticed that I did it a fucking eight leg parlay this past week. Oh, wow. Best. Best best betting hit of my entire life. Oh, wow. Stunning Tom Brady almost fucking killed me. Literally. almost killed me dead in my seat. Right but he can't through.

Dave Clarke:

He's like the gold rush you look at you. There's his credentials.

Rob Kelly:

Yeah, so my first one is a foreleg underdog parlay. This is how I roll. I like to bet small win big, you know, low risk, high reward. So I got the Seahawks over the bucks. We saw with the bucks were this past weekend. I think the Seahawks are legit. Vikings over the bells on the reason so it's low risk remember that can use over the bells is there 701 It's a see if you're legit time and it's at 1pm Kirk Cousins 1pm Kirk Cousins and Superman Broncos over the Titans I really know if I believe in this Titans team they work really good against AFC South teams work kind of crappy against other teams without off Tannehill be back. Broncos was wrapped in charges over the Niners. Herbert is harbor. You know, you were you were predicting him to be MVP at the end of this season. So

Dave Clarke:

he's not gonna be though.

Rob Kelly:

He's not gonna still be San Francisco this week. All his receivers are hurt. As 400 The one that probably right there would be wouldn't be 400 The $1 Win $1,000,000.05 dollars went to 50. Wow. That'd be great. Yeah, be a great day. Okay,

Dave Clarke:

I play it a little differently, just to see the sort of contrast in our styles here. I have a three leg parlay. And I like to bet in units of $10. So I got five units on this. The Chicago Bears money line against the lions, which is at minus 150. I think the lions are very gettable I think the bears are on it on a hit streak. I think they're they're they've kind of come into their stride. I think people score a lot of points on the dolphins and the bears are scoring a lot of points. So that's minus 150. I got the Giants over the Texans, because I think that's a gimme, and so does Vegas that's minus 210. So the Texans are awful. The giants are not the Giants need to win this game to like sort of stay in the conversation. As you heard they weren't in the conversations and in the power rankings. And then I got the under Seahawks books, because I think if the Buccaneers win games they do they win low scoring games, and I think the books are gonna win, but I'm not that confident. So I took the under 44 and a half at minus 110 $50 Bet on those three, I think likely scenarios on like the fucking pie in the sky shit. You heard from Bobby for 50 bucks. Gets your $184.85 So that's my NFL parlay. Now listen, you want to be like Bob and go in all guns blazing? I power to you. More power to it. You're only throwing five bucks on it. What's the big deal? But yeah, moving on. What's your second? Fun parlay there, Bob.

Rob Kelly:

So my second one is actually just for the so so I should deposit I'll throw it out too. So I have another bananas one. Or I have I have a little safer. Do

Dave Clarke:

you just tell me both?

Rob Kelly:

Alright, so I have an eight leg power away. This is literally $5 to where the $1,000 Wow, that'd be great day. Yeah. So 1000s minus three over the Panthers. Bears minus three over the lions. Saints minus two and a half over the Steelers. Dolphins minus three and a half over the Browse bills minus four and a half over the Vikings. Titans minus three over the Broncos cowboys minus five over the Packers charges plus seven to round it out Sunday night. Over the fortnight

Dave Clarke:

I actually don't hate that. That's I think a lot of smart bets in there because you told me the other one that you're about to tell the listeners and I was like that is not hitting because you told me that before the show and I was like no fucking chance but so that was

Rob Kelly:

one Yeah, that's not bad. Right? That's good because if you look down that list, all those teams are pretty much should win those games.

Dave Clarke:

Sometimes there's no upset weeks. You know, sometimes that happened not this season in the NFL, but sometimes it happens. All right. Well, tell me tell me the other one.

Rob Kelly:

So this is just for Thursday night Cordell Cordell Patterson to score two touchdowns and the Falcons to cover alternate spread of the touchdown six and a half.

Dave Clarke:

It would be good for you if Cordell Patterson scored those two touchdowns. Are we playing each other fancy this week? You would not trade me eight more than that. And your reasoning for not trading me him was? I mean, I think I'm doing okay. So that's so that means you my mortal enemy and fantasy football. So I really hope I beat you this week. Although your team your team is is a wagon but I've done a little bit restructuring. Alright to round this out with my last parlay. It is a non football one and two of the three legs at the football portion. I do have the Panthers plus 130 over the Falcons. It's a little bit of a punt. I'm not really sure who's gonna win that game because I don't think either team is good. But I can have seen the Panthers play really well more recently. So I think too, you kind of bet in the odds and not the team in that situation. And I just liked him a plus 130 Liverpool beaten Southampton they haven't been great in the Premier League this year, but it's kind of a must win game and Southampton are terrible. And this is the last game I believe is the last Premier League game before we break for the World Cup. So I think they want to you know, put on a show. That's why it's minus 400. But that's why we're parlaying. And then In my only lock my only law of this entire sports weekend coming up and let me tell you this is a fucking lock. I will This is a lock and key on a chastity belt on a fucking maiden in medieval times this is locked alright. Just bet this on its own if you want Dustin Poirier is fighting Michael Chandler it's like the third to last fight on the Israel out of Sanya card this coming Saturday I bet that it doesn't go the distance and the reason why I bet that it isn't gonna go the distance is because it fucking isn't. So put it in a parlay betting on its own bet your fucking rent on it that fights not going the distance. Let me look here, it's pretty good odds for the fact that I know it's it's not happening it's minus 220 to go the distance it's pretty good. Pretty, pretty long odds on it. You know, the most fights go the distance like most fights do and it's only three rounds so that's what's affecting it a little bit but it doesn't matter

Rob Kelly:

because most fights go the distance and it's minus 220 I would say Okay,

Dave Clarke:

so like in boxing way more likely to go the distance right than an MMA Of course I don't have the I don't have the exact stats in front of me but in MMA you have three round fights. So a lot of those fights go the distance right? A lot of the fights in the women's division go the distance because they don't and this isn't a misogynistic statement. This is just transmission they're not knocking people out right. And there's a lot of them that like cancel each other out a lot of talent in those divisions, but whatever but the I would say like as you go up in weight classes, the likelihood of it going the distance decreases. So the heavyweights are always knocking each other out because they got those fucking tiny

Rob Kelly:

glimpse like 250 pounds huge rock.

Dave Clarke:

It's one of the best things that can happen on a car and you just like kind of space and out on like a Saturday watching the early prelims. And then two fucking behemoths come out. You're like someone's getting knocked out and go. That's a lot of fun. I love doing that on a Saturday. But yeah, that's the lot and that was the power Ranking Show everybody with a little Susana degenerate gambling at the end, always fun and we'll definitely see you next week. Thank you so much for listening. For myself DK sizzle and the real BK Bob Kelly. I will see you next week.
